Members of the community gathered at the Church of Scientology to celebrate Human Rights Day 2019.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — An interfaith forum held in celebration of Human Rights Day 2019 at the Church of Scientology in Mountain View, California, focused on Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) Article 18:

“Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”

Article 18 is one of 30 articles that describe the basic rights belonging to every member of the human family.

In 1969, in addressing escalating social unrest in cities throughout the world, Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote: “The United Nations came up with the answer. An absence of human rights stained the hands of governments and threatened their rules. Very few governments have implemented any part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These governments have not grasped that their very survival depends utterly upon adopting such reforms and thus giving their people a cause, a civilization worth supporting, worth their patriotism.”

The Church of Scientology of Silicon Valley spotlighted freedom of religion or belief in their Human Rights Day celebration. A recent article in Deseret News points out: “Contrary to popular belief, religious persecution is alive and well around the world. More than 80 percent of the global population lives in religiously restrictive environments, according to Pew Research Center.”

The Church hosted a forum featuring a panel of leaders from six religions: Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam and the Church of Scientology.

The following questions were addressed by the panelists: What are the basic teachings of their faith? Do their traditions have a concept of human rights? How have the scriptures or teachings of their religion been used to promote peace? This was followed by questions from the audience.

Dr. Alexa Alborzi, Public Affairs Director of the Church of Scientology of Silicon Valley, introduced the audience to Youth for Human Rights International, a human rights initiative supported by Scientologists and the Church of Scientology. As both a Muslim and a Scientologist, Dr. Alborzi said the subject of human rights is very dear to her—every person should be treated with dignity and their rights must be upheld.

Many attending the forum realized they had misconceptions about one or more of the faiths represented. One realized her views of Muslims had been colored by negative media and she said she appreciated having the opportunity to gain a richer understanding of the religion.

L. Ron Hubbard set forth the beliefs of the Church of Scientology on the subject of religious freedom and human rights in the Scientology Prayer for Total Freedom:

“We pray that human rights will be preserved so that all people may believe and worship freely, so that freedom will once again be seen in our land.

“Freedom from war, and poverty, and want; freedom to be; freedom to do and freedom to have.

“Freedom to use and understand Man’s potential—a potential that is God-given and Godlike.

“And freedom to achieve that understanding and awareness that is Total Freedom.

“May God let it be so.”

San Gabriel Bishop David O’Connell was the honored guest as a Wells of Life water well was presented in his name

Nothing brings me more joy than bringing the gift of life to another human being with clean water, including my friends makes this even more worthwhile.”

— Dennis Alfieri

PASADENA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pasadena resident and Wells of Life Ambassador Dennis Alfieri hosted a Giving Tuesday event on December 3 which honored San Gabriel Bishop David O’Connell. Held at Celestino Ristorante in Pasadena, Alfieri and co-host Rand Sperry, presented a well in the Bishop’s name on behalf of Southern Calif.-based Wells of Life which provides easy access to clean water and hygiene measures to remote villages in Uganda, East Africa.

The Most Reverend David G. O’Connell is the Episcopal Vicar of the San Gabriel Pastoral Region and is well known for his tireless work on behalf of the poor. Alfieri dedicated water well number 496 to the Bishop which will provide clean water to approximately 1000 poor villagers for up to 25 years.

Initially inspired by a personal encounter with His Holiness, Pope Francis at the Vatican on November 7, 2018, Alfieri became a legacy donor and accepted the position of Wells of Life ambassador.

Alfieri said, “Nothing brings me more joy than bringing the gift of life to another human being with clean water, including my friends makes this even more worthwhile.”

In addition to his support of Wells of Life, Alfieri is active with the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, The Children’s Burn Foundation, The Sheriff’s Youth Foundation of Los Angeles County and the Pasadena Optimist Club. He was appointed to the California Horse Racing Board in 2018 by then-Governor Jerry Brown.

The evening commenced with renowned uilleann pipe musician Eric Rigler. During the hosted dinner, Wells of Life Founder and CEO Nick Jordan presented the work of Wells of Life to 45 guests including Wells of Life President Pete Callahan, board members Charlie Hedges, Rand Sperry, Michelle Jordan along with ambassadors’ sister Joan Hogan, Dr. David Goldsmith and local philanthropists.

Giving Tuesday is a movement to create an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the holiday season.

Jordan said, “I’m thankful for Dennis’ support and Giving Tuesday was an ideal day to celebrate the season by bringing people together for the common cause of making water a basic human right to all people on earth.”

About Wells of Life

Founded in 2008, the Christian nonprofit organization based in Irvine, views access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) as the catalyst that drives change and transforms community life for Africa’s poorest and most vulnerable people.

Animal Wellness Announces Rewards Program, Aimed at U.S. Territories, for Information About Illegal Animal Fighting

Cockfighting Match

Cockfighting Ring

Animal Wellness Brands Logo

All Citizens in the U.S. Territories Must Comply
With New Federal Law Forbidding Animal Fighting

I am convinced the people of Guam care about animals and want to see the winding down of cockfighting on our beautiful island.”

— Chanel Cruz Jarrett, a former Miss Guam with the Animal Wellness Foundation

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, December 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Animal Wellness Foundation (AWF) and Animal Wellness Action (AWA) today announced a rewards program to run for an indefinite time that provides a $2,500 reward for any individual who provides critical information that results in a successful federal prosecution of an individual or set of individuals who violate the federal law against animal fighting (7 U.S.C. § 2156). The publicizing of the rewards program will concentrate on the U.S. territories, where cockfighting is explicitly outlawed starting on December 20, 2019. The reward program is mentioned on the new campaign website, www.endcockfighting.org, which will serve as a comprehensive resource about the issue and call citizens to action to help.

If you have information about illegal cockfighting activities, citizens can send tips and other information to us at animalcrueltytips@animalwellnessaction.org. You can also consider contacting the appropriate U.S. Attorneys or state or territorial attorney general representing the jurisdiction where the crime occurred, the USDA’s Office of Inspector General at 1-800-424-9121, or the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

“I am convinced the people of Guam care about animals and want to see the winding down of cockfighting on our beautiful island,” said Chanel Cruz Jarrett, a former Miss Guam and the anti-cockfighting spokesperson for the Animal Wellness Foundation. “We are an appealing destination for people across the Pacific Rim and it’s time to remove the stigma of any form of animal cruelty on Guam.”

“Cockfighting does not represent the true values of Puerto Rico and it is a great relief that it will end on our island,” said Ana Maria Hernandez, an animal law attorney in San Juan and also a spokesperson for AWF. “The people of Puerto Rico abhor animal cruelty and want to see the end of cockfighting.”

Under the federal anti-animal fighting law, it is a crime to:

 -Knowingly sponsor or exhibit in an animal fighting venture;

 -Knowingly attend an animal fighting venture, or knowingly cause an individual who has not attained the age of 16 to attend an animal fighting venture;

 -Knowingly buy, sell, possess, train, transport, deliver, or receive any animal for purposes of having the animal participate in an animal fighting venture;

 -Knowingly use the mail service of the U.S. Postal Service, or any “written, wire, radio televisions or other form of communications in, or use a facility of, interstate commerce,” to advertise an animal for use in an animal fighting venture, or to advertise a knife, gaff, or other sharp instrument designed to be attached to the leg of a bird for us in an animal fighting venture, or to promote or in any other manner further an animal fighting venture except as performed outside the U.S.;

 -Knowingly sell, buy, transport, or deliver in interstate or foreign commerce “a knife, a gaff, or any other sharp instrument” designed or intended to be attached to the leg of a bird for us in an animal fighting venture.

“I grew up on Guam, and I know the people of the territory care deeply about the well-being of animals and the rule of law,” said Marion Look-Jameson, a board member with Animal Wellness Action. “Our organization will pay the rewards as necessary, but my hope is that we don’t have to pay out a dime because every American will adhere to the law.”

Penalties for each violation of any one of these provisions allows for a maximum of 5 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for perpetrators, except for an adult attending an animal fighting venture. Penalties for an adult attendee are 1 year in prison and a $5,000 fine.

An “animal fighting venture “involves a fight conducted or to be conducted between at least two animals for purposes of sport, wagering, or entertainment.

Prohibitions on attending on selling, buying, possessing, training, transporting, delivering, or receiving an animal in an animal fighting venture; attending an animal fighting venture; or trafficking in knives or gaffs for use on a bird have long applied to all U.S. territories. On December 20, 2019, these prohibitions are effective in the U.S. territories: sponsoring or exhibiting an animal in an animal fighting venture or knowing using the mail service of the U.S. Postal Service, or advertising an animal for use in a fighting venture, to advertise a knife or gaff, or to promote an animal fighting venture.

“Federal agencies and officers have a duty to enforce our laws against the barbaric practices of cockfighting and dogfighting,” said Wayne Pacelle of the Animal Wellness Foundation. “But their good works depend on the cooperation and alertness of citizens. We ask people who know about illegal animal fighting activities to help us stop these forms of cruelty.”

This year’s UN motto for Human Rights Day is part of our DNA

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Youth for Human Rights International (YHRI) epitomizes the UN’s theme for Human Rights Day 2019: “Youth Standing Up for Human Rights.” In addition to mentoring the hundreds of Youth for Human Rights chapters throughout the world where young volunteers promote peace and advocate for the rights of others, YHRI makes its educational materials available free of charge to anyone wishing to establish a new chapter or help youth understand their rights.

Educators, community leaders and volunteers order Youth for Human Rights educational materials and use them in classes and seminars. For example, one teacher used them to encourage her pupils to stand up for the rights of others. When they realized that bullying violates the human rights of the victims, it made a real impact on them and they took action to rein in bullies.

Teachers, law enforcement officers, ministers and community leaders use this program, as shown by a sampling of the results over the past few weeks:

In Pakistan, a human rights activist and lawyer uses these materials to educate youth and adults on the issue of child labor. He advocates for children who are working in brick factories to be allowed to attend school. So far he has educated over 2,000 people in his community with the result that 40 children, previously working in the brick factories, have returned to school.

A social studies teacher in California wrote to Youth for Human Rights International about the program: “I have been using your human rights videos for over 10 years in the modern world history courses I teach at a social justice-themed school..…all students are well versed in human rights, thanks to your support.”

A school in South Africa’s Mpumalanga Province agreed to add human rights to the school curriculum. They decided that now that they have the Youth for Human Rights materials, they can make the subject understandable to the students.

A Methodist pastor in India used the materials in a human rights seminar for the youth of his congregation, inspiring them to stand up for the rights of others.

The state of Lagos in Nigeria has adopted the Youth for Human Rights education program. So far, the program has been delivered in six schools reaching 4,600 students. After the holidays it will roll out to all other schools in the state.

A teacher in Long Island, New York, wrote in saying she used the Youth for Human Rights materials in a journalism lesson for a writers’ workshop. In fact, she wrote, she incorporates these materials into every academic subject she teaches.

In Winnipeg Canada, the curriculum director of an elementary school uses the materials because they are “excellent in getting the information about human rights to students.”

In Youth for Human Rights chapters around the world, youth and young adults are preparing events to promote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on Human Rights Day 2019. These activities include marches, petition drives to make human rights education mandatory in the schools of their nation or state, seminars, conferences, award ceremonies, art competitions—all of them aimed at raising awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and protecting and defending these rights for all people.

The Church of Scientology and Scientologists support Youth for Human Rights and make its educational materials available free of charge. Watch a documentary on the history and activities of Youth for Human Rights International on Voices for Humanity on the Scientology Network.

Ministers from a dozen South African Christian ministries came together at Castle Kyalami for workshops on practical life skills from the Scientology Handbook.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Spiritual leaders from 16 Christian denominations across Gauteng convened at Castle Kyalami, African continental headquarters for the Church of Scientology, for a series of Tools for Life workshops from the Scientology Handbook—a compendium of practical information and skills based on the works of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard.

Presenting 19 subjects of use to anyone—including study skills, improving communication, repairing broken relationships, raising children, resolving conflicts, organizing and attaining goals—Tools for Life training was offered to assist pastors and religious communities.

After the training, pastors returned to their churches throughout Gauteng to share the everyday life skills with their congregations. A bishop from St. Paul’s Holy Apostolic Church delivered sermons on the chapters “The Cause of Suppression,” “Technology of Study,” and “Answers to Drugs.” The bishop reported lively discussion followed each sermon and observable changes—less conflict, more optimism, ever greater ability to understand the Bible.

A Seventh-Day Adventist archbishop, who completed all 19 courses online and delivered seminars throughout his parish, saw among his pastors and their congregations a new spirit and ability to uplift one another.

A bishop in Pretoria described The Scientology Handbook as her “companion on my journey” to solve the challenging conditions she and her community face.

Another church leader in a district of Pretoria began using the Tools for Life in sermons, resulting in the formation of a Scientology Handbook study group. The group rapidly doubled in size and continued to grow as others noticed the change in their fellow parishioners after they studied “Components of Understanding” and “How to Resolve Conflicts.”

In the hundreds of congregations where Tools for Life training has been implemented to date, pastors and priests report that the simple, workable solutions to the challenges facing them and their congregations changed their lives immediately—and they experienced a 60 percent increase in church attendance.

New Theory on the Physics of Consciousness Says: It's the Magnetic fields in the Brain

— Todd Murphy

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, December 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — What does it feel like to be a magnetic field, coming from millions of magnets? It feels like consciousness. That’s how neuroscientist Todd Murphy explains the physics of awareness.

In a research publication released 11/19, he suggests that consciousness is a basic property of all magnetic fields, including the one in the brain (with its five million magnetite crystals per gram). The brain’s magnetic field, coming from these microscopic magnets, “sees” the brain’s electrical activity, letting us know what it’s doing. The many positive and negative poles of the brain’s magnets serve as in/out feedback channels, essential for awareness, allowing our brain’s complex magnetic field to support vast feedback mechanisms.

Prof. Todd Murphy points out that electrical currents in brain cells also create magnetism (Maxwell’s Equations), influencing the fields from the brain's magnetite. Its magnetic field (consciousness) "picks up," or resonates with, information encoded in neuronal electric pulses, coming from emotions, thoughts, and the senses.

Consciousness is what the brain’s inner magnetic field, with its many sources, feels like. Living things are aware through their senses because the brain’s inner magnetic field, produced by its millions of tiny magnets, receives all its electrical sensory information. The neural magnetic field broadcasts all of it throughout the brain, at a fraction of the speed of light, instantly combining all ongoing experiences.

Todd Murphy, associated with Laurentian University's Neuroscience Program since 1998, also suggests that simpler magnetic fields support simple consciousness, as in animals with rudimentary senses (such as eyes that are only aware of darkness or light). More complex consciousness, like that of humans or other primates, require more developed nervous systems, and much larger numbers of magnetite crystals. Their greater nuances of thought and emotion give people more to be aware of.

Proving it will be a challenge because science can't prove that anything is conscious. The only way to know consciousness exists is through subjective experience, which isn't admissible as scientific evidence. However, Murphy suggests several tests that would help support his theory.

Murphy's paper, "Solving the “Hard Problem”: Consciousness as an Intrinsic Property of Magnetic Fields" appears in the Journal of Consciousness Exploration and Research. He's published several journal articles, and three books in neuroscience.

Santa Claus Welcomes Shipment of Christmas Trees to Winter Wonderland in Downtown Clearwater

Santa Claus does quality control on several Christmas trees, slated to be a part of the annual Winter Wonderland in Clearwater. Winter Wonderland, an annual food and toy drive put on by the Clearwater Community Volunteers, will open this year on the 7th of December.

Santa does his "ornament-ability" inspection upon arrival of Winter Wonderland's Christmas trees with the help of his chief elf.

CLEARWATER, FL, US, December 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Santa Claus and his chief elf were in downtown Clearwater this weekend to supervise a special delivery – more than eighty Christmas trees for Clearwater’s Winter Wonderland. Though the annual holiday display and food and toy drive officially begins on the 7th of December, there is still work to do. Santa wanted to be on hand to inspect the trees personally.

“Like me, these trees made a long journey from the north,” said Santa. “It is important that they are unloaded with care and are made ready for Winter Wonderland’s grand opening.”

The trees arrived after a multi-day trip by truck from a tree farm in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. The staff at the tree farm maintain over 300 acres of planted trees, planting an average of 6,000 trees a year. Before the trees are placed on the truck they are carefully trimmed by hand to create a perfect Christmas tree.

Volunteers, including Scouts from Troop 313 – chartered to the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization – were at work getting the trees into their final locations. Santa made sure that the trees met his exact standards, including their ‘ornament-ability.’

“We are very excited for Winter Wonderland’s grand opening on December 7th when I will be back to light up the village and see each of these beautifully decorated trees again,” said Santa.

The Winter Wonderland Village is located on the corner of Drew Street and N. Fort Harrison Avenue, in downtown Clearwater.

Clearwater’s Winter Wonderland is also a food and toy drive for needy children and families. Visitors are asked to bring an unwrapped toy or non-perishable food item and put it in Santa’s sleigh. All of the donations will be given to The Pinellas Sheriff’s Police Athletic League to help families over the holidays.

Winter Wonderland will be open every day from 6pm to 9pm through December 22nd, except on Mondays and Tuesdays. Admission is free but there is a small charge for some activities and the food items in the Hot Chocolate Shop (cash-only transactions).
