TAMPA, FL, USA, March 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Believing in the generosity of Christian women in the Tampa Bay area 100 Shares Tampa Bay (100STB) has set a vision of releasing $1.8 million dollars into Hillsborough and Pinellas counties' communities to help local ministries. These funds will come in the form of annual grants in the amounts of $50,000 to $100,000.

100STB was founded in early 2014 by a small group of ladies with BIG vision…to bring 100 plus like-minded, generous women together in an effort to help launch local ministries to their next level of service. In only 3 short years, the impact is already noticeable. On April 27, 2017, they will present a grant of $50,000 dollars to a local ministry. This will bring their total granted amount to $125,000!

Experiencing the excitement and momentum of exponential growth they have chosen to cast a greater vision. That vision would conclude by year end 2027 with a total of 260 partners generously giving to 100STB and having granted $1.8 million dollars to assist local ministries in our community.


100 Shares Tampa Bay was founded in early 2014 to bring 100 like-minded, generous women together to support community ministries with their mission in the greater Tampa Bay area. The result would be the availability each year of a significant contribution of $100,000 or more. This money would be awarded in the form of grants to selected non-profits that proclaim the gospel of Christ and meet the needs of those they serve. This would enable the ministries to move forward to a new level of service

New literary talent debuts a cutting edge memoir how to live in the light

Fr. Thomas Keating endorses this cutting edge memoir

author Chris Manion

Chris Manion, author

New Literary Talent Wins Thomas Keating Endorsement in "an Incredible Read," "a Gorgeous Memoir."

I felt drawn down a long hallway. I found
myself wandering toward a door at the end of it. As I approached
the door with a bit of hesitation, I slowed and began to wonder what
was beyond…”

— Chris Manion

MIRAMAR BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — A powerhouse leader in the direct-selling industry is the newest Catholic literary talent. In her deeply honest debut memoir, she reveals the transformations that changed her life and undergirded her home-based business success story. Chris Manion, author of God’s Patient Pursuit of My Soul (Redemption Press, February 2017), a national executive, grew her team of more than 5,000 into a $20 million annual sales organization before retiring in 2013 to focus on writing.

An inspirational speaker who garners standing ovations, Manion earned her company’s highest awards for developing leaders and sales for over twenty consecutive years.

Despite her business acumen and success, this type-A super achiever felt a longing to know God since childhood, a longing that attending church on Sundays did not assuage. Her book documents her journey to a deeper relationship with God, which evolved into a contemplative way of life. Her arresting memoir is authentic, often humorous, and ranges from prison to podium, from guitar strings to monasteries. This humble, bestselling author makes dexterous use of metaphor and lyrical language as she leads readers through experiences of trial and triumph while struggling to follow God’s call and voice.

"This book will help many increase their confidence in God's great love for us," writes Father Thomas Keating, a Trappist monk and priest, known as one of the architects of Centering Prayer and founder of Contemplative Outreach.

Nicki Keohohou, CEO and co-founder of the Direct Selling World Alliance (DSWA) says, “From entrepreneur to literary talent, Chris Manion resonates with the DSWA’ mission of personal and professional development by pointing out that the more deeply you commit to serving the Lord and His purpose, the more you are called upon to develop yourself to the fullest.”

This cutting-edge memoir gives real insight to the natural way spiritual life can intersect with daily life. The author's vignettes from her unusual life build unforgettable images like her "Irish ancestors cleared stones from their fields." Marion Roach Smith, professor and author of The Memoir Project: A Thoroughly Non-Standardized Text for Writing & Life, describes it as “A handbook, in the form of a memoir, on how to let the beauty of life be a feast for the soul.”

She and her husband of forty years live near Destin, Florida where she photographs the beauty of the Emerald Coast. They boast of two children and three grandchildren.

Cuomo’s Justice Center Operating Unconstitutionally

Jonathan Carey “Champion for the Disabled” Born September 12,1993 Killed by caregivers on February 15,2007

Judge’s decision shines light on unconstitutional practices of Governor Cuomo’s agency and his appointed prosecutor

Now is the time for this failed and corrupt agency to be swiftly defunded from the currently debated State budget and shut down. ”

— Michael Carey

DELMAR, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The criminal sexual abuse case just thrown out by Judge Breslin will literally put in question every other criminal case handled by Cuomo’s Justice Center. This State agency has been systematically bypassing County elected District Attorney’s regarding most crimes reported to them for almost four years. The News 10 piece is extremely damning http://news10.com/2017/03/30/sex-abuse-charges-dismissed-against-local-teacher/ revealing, “The case was being prosecuted by the New York State Justice Center, but the judge said the agency didn’t have the authority.” District Attorney’s or prosecutors are elected officials. Governor Cuomo appointed his own special prosecutor to circumvent local authorities, including County District Attorney’s to ensure that his employee could easily obstruct justice on a regular basis and make most criminal cases disappear internally. All oversight was shut down by the Cuomo administration, even all private protection and advocacy entities that were in place to assist the disabled.
Prosecutors are elected officials and are supposed to be independent determining criminal cases with non bias by reviewing evidence obtained by trained law enforcement officers, not employees of provider agencies. The Justice Center is operating contrary and is regularly circumventing the normal criminal justice system. Both the Albany Times Union http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Judge-Justice-Center-needs-to-work-with-elected-11039784.php and Spotlight News piece http://www.spotlightnews.com/towns/bethlehem/2017/03/30/judge-dismisses-justice-centers-case-against-teacher-accused-of-having-sex-with-student/ tell in greater detail regarding the tossed sexual assault case.
The Justice Center was renamed and relocated and deceptively rolled out following a massive award winning investigative reporting series titled “Abused & Used” which was a runner up for a Pulitzer Prize http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/nyregion/abused-and-used-series-page.html?_r=0. Governor Cuomo and his administrations purpose was not to stop and prevent the rampant physical and sexual abuse or staggering numbers of deaths of people with disabilities occurring within his agencies, but to hide as much of it as possible. This was done to give an appearance of reform, when in fact; it really was about covering up far more criminal cases, including criminally negligent deaths than ever before. This entity is currently fielding close to 7,800 calls to their abuse hotline for the disabled monthly and most criminal cases are never reported to local police or County elected District Attorney’s. The Justice Center, which is not a Justice Center, but primarily a call center, receives between 11-13 reports of deaths occurring throughout New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health system every single day. Most crimes committed against some of the most vulnerable New York State residents were and continue to be purposefully not criminally investigated and funneled back to both State and private provider agencies for internal investigations leading to most of them being covered-up. Most deaths are never even reported to County Medical Examiners or Coroners. Federal criminal and civil rights investigations have been requested and additional emergency actions must be taken by the New York State legislative leaders to protect upwards of 1,000,000 New York State residents with disabilities living in residential facilities and group homes.
Now is the time for this failed and corrupt agency to be swiftly defunded from the currently debated State budget and shut down. Most reported and witnessed crimes committed against the disabled never were reported to local police or ever criminally investigated and covered up by this State agency, including thousands of sexual assaults and deaths.
No longer can people with disabilities in New York State be treated as a lesser valuable group of people and denied their basic rights to 911 emergency services and emergency assistance or to have their cases heard in court. Bypassing the 911 call systems and keeping almost everything internal is not only an obstruction of justice, but is also preventing our most vulnerable from receiving immediate emergency police assistance causing many deaths. These discriminatory practices are denying this special group of people their equal right to equal protection of laws which also denies them justice. This is dead wrong and it is discrimination in civil rights. Stand with us for “equal rights” and “civil rights” for people with disabilities in New York State and throughout our great country by signing our petition at www.jonathancareyfoundation.org. No longer can 911 be bypassed. 911 call systems must be immediately called by all mandated reporters regarding all physical and sexual abuse, gross negligence of care, significant and suspicious injuries and when a person with a disability is in medical distress or has stopped breathing. http://jonathancareyfoundation.org/donate/

Pastors Present Texas Toilet Seat Awards To Some Legislators, Call For Vote On SB 6

Texas Pastor Council, a Citizen Ministry.

A group of pastors who came to be known nationally as the "Houston Five", unveiled the "Texas Toilet Seat Awards" to several Texas State Senators.

HOUSTON, TX, UNITED STATES, March 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — "Texas Pastor Council": A group of pastors who came to be known nationally as the "Houston Five", surrounded by pastors from throughout the Greater Houston area stood together again Monday in a videotaped, media-style conference to make statements calling on Texas House of Representatives to vote on and pass Senate Bill 6, the Texas Privacy Act. At the conference, the pastors unveiled the "Texas Toilet Seat Awards" for each Texas State Senator who voted against SB 6 as well as Speaker of the House Joe Straus for opposing and trivializing the bill. The pastors representing "every color of the church" also sent a warning to Representatives who do not support the bill that there may be an "award" waiting for them as well.

The "Houston Five" are the pastors whose sermons and sixteen other categories of information were subpoenaed by the Houston mayor in the course of their opposition to the mayor's ordinance that would have allowed biological males into the showers, locker rooms and restrooms of females both public and private in Houston. That ordinance was defeated at the ballot by Houston voters by a percentage of 61 – 39.

SB 6, passed by the Texas Senate over a week ago and now pending a hearing in the House of Representatives, would prohibit cities and school districts in Texas from adopting similar ordinances, using variable and vague definitions of "gender identity" as a new protected class.

RESOURCE INFORMATION: To put this in perspective, the total U.S. Population is about 318 million, of which (according to a study of the Williams Institute, UCLA School of Law) 700,000 are identified as transgender. That reflects .002 (two-tenths of one percent) of the population. Moreover, a highly credible study by respected scholars Lawrence Mayer and Paul McHugh of Johns Hopkins University (Sexuality and Gender; Findings from the Biological, Psychological and Social Sciences) completely refutes any claims that this condition is immutable.

SB 6 is nothing more than a rational and just response to these "whack a mole" agenda of city and school district level ordinances that are completely unnecessary even to address the "needs" of the .2 of one percent who are gender confused. It is abominable public policy to jeopardize the privacy, safety and freedom of 99.8 percent of the population, which exactly what happened in San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Mesquite and Dripping Springs just as starters toward the 1900 incorporated cities and 1100 ISD's in Texas.

Colorado Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Appeals to A Skilled Healthcare Facility Employee in Colorado To Call About Rewards If They Can Prove Their Employer is Overbilling Medicare

Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever finding out what it might have been worth?”

— Colorado Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON , DC, USA, March 22, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Colorado Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "We are appealing to an employee of a skilled nursing center, a nursing home, a hospice provider, a dialysis center, an ambulance company or a hospital ER to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if your employer is intentionally billing for unnecessary medical procedures or systematically up-coding Medicare bills to get a huge financial windfall from the federal government.

"We are certain there are probably hundreds of healthcare employees in Colorado who possess this type of information and we would like to hear from them anytime for a confidential conversation about how the federal whistleblower program works." http://Colorado.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The Center is especially interested in hearing from healthcare workers in Colorado with the following type of information:

* A nursing home doing procedures on Medicare patients such as ambulatory, speech or cognitive testing.
Skilled nursing facility/rehab center grossly overcharging for minutes of rehab therapy done to individual patients.
* A nursing home billing Medicare for patient care as if their facility is fully staffed when in fact the facility is always short staffed.
* A hospice provider in Colorado that is signing up Medicare patients that are not dying or do not qualify for hospice.
* A hospital ER that routinely admits Medicare patients for unnecessary medical procedures such as a visit to the cath lab, imaging, or other un-needed testing.

"If you are a healthcare worker in Colorado and you possess this type of information please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for a confidential conversation about the whistleblower reward potential of your information. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever finding out what it might have been worth?" http://Colorado.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Colorado Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Colorado Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a Colorado based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.”

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Colorado can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Colorado.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com

Relationship Book Debunks Mars-Venus Divide, Links Evolutionary Psychology to Spirituality

The Authentic Lover

The Authentic Lover

This book explores the four enemies of love: violence, pettiness, vanity, and our reproductive agenda. Beyond those, nothing keeps us from unconditional love.

This genuinely helpful relationship book reads smoothly and quickly, propelled by often graceful prose… Powerful, persuasive encouragement toward better and wiser loving.”

— Kirkus Reviews

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIFORNIA, USA, March 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Why is there so much conflict around sexuality? How does a relationship that began with joy end up feeling like a chore? Why is attraction so seldom reciprocated? And what, if anything, does online dating have to do with love? The Authentic Lover explores the four great enemies of love: violence, pettiness, vanity, and our reproductive agenda. If we can overcome these formidable enemies, nothing more keeps us from the vast experience of unconditional love.

Starting from the raw data of evolutionary psychology and other modern research, The Authentic Lover takes the reader on a journey through traditional wisdom, Rumi's poetry, samurai culture, and the dry humor that comes from firsthand experience. Specific contemplations are offered to address the problems described and attain the corresponding virtues conducive to unconditional love: gentleness, grace, charm, and mystery.

– The book discusses the perennial topics of love and sex in a frank and original voice.
– The book is the first to link insights of evolutionary psychology with spiritual practice.
– It debunks Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus in a single endnote!
– Readers who loved The Art of Loving by Erich Fromm will love The Authentic Lover.

This genuinely helpful relationship book reads smoothly and quickly, propelled by often graceful prose… Powerful, persuasive encouragement toward better and wiser loving. — Kirkus Reviews
