    North America business can now expand beyond the United States. Sprint Data Solutions Canada lifestyle consumer database is making consumer marketing a breeze.

    LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, January 10, 2022 / -- Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing is here to help businesses ready to go international and expand business outside of the US market. There are business postal mailing lists for enterprises better equipped to go the B2B route and offer products or services to other corporations.

    However, for those companies that interact with the general public directly, consumer postal mailing lists are widely available that suit a huge range of different marketing, product, and service needs. Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing aims to break down marketing needs according to the metrics and demographics businesses are looking for.

    How Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing Got Its Start
    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing is a 100% wholly American-owned and operated business with a disabled veteran as the founder. Having performed the patriotic duty to protect the country, the step after that was to help the country’s economy grow by aiding its businesses. There is now a staff with over 50 years of combined industry experience in marketing to help clients.

    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing first began operations in an earlier, not-yet-digital era, when analog processes like direct mail marketing still dominated the industry. However, that early, pre-digital experience would prove crucial in conveying lessons that easily translated to results in the digital space as digital marketing finally came into its own. The early success in the physical and analog markets turned into an effective transition to digital marketing techniques that only served to solidify the growth and success of the company as new market opportunities and practices emerged.

    Today, Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing has expanded its operating range from humble beginnings, serving only its hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. The entire United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, enjoy marketing coverage. And of course, for those businesses that are ready to grow beyond the US border, there are now services available both across the ocean, in countries like France, as well as for those that want to break into the business in other North American nations such as Mexico and, of course, Canada.

    A Similar Market
    Canada enjoys a unique relationship with the United States that almost no other country shares with its neighbors. The border between the two nations is the longest undefended border in the world due to the mutual, neighborly trust that the two countries share. However, perhaps more important from a business perspective is that the two countries share the same language, sensibility, and even cultural values despite being nations independent of each other. This makes the Canadian market viable for American businesses as their own domestic territories.

    In particular, this means that the huge lifestyle market of the United States is compatible with those across the border, and Canada lifestyle consumer marketing lists can be adapted to the needs of American businesses with little in the way of adjustment and adaptation. Language and cultural considerations may be issues with attempting to expand into other markets in other countries. This is rarely an issue in the Canadian market, except for marketing efforts targeted specifically at the French-Canadian demographic.

    Crossing Existing Bridges
    Fortunately, because Canada is a “mainland” nation on the same continent, much of the infrastructure required for business, including distribution channels, is already in place and well-established. For companies wishing to expand into Canada, especially those interested in breaking into Canada lifestyle consumer marketing arenas, there are even familiar brand names with an existing presence, such as Walmart and Amazon, that make it possible for businesses to approach a new market under a familiar face.

    Suitable For A Large Range
    As with the American market, the Canada lifestyle consumer market covers many different products and services. Everything from fitness to dieting, recreation to academics, self-improvement, to even cannabis products, due to Federal legalization of the substance, is available to tap into.

    American companies need to do what they would if they were trying to break into a new state or region of a state for expanding business and sales. Find out where the need for the product is greatest by identifying which markets want the product and where they are located. The rest follows from this essential research.

    Databases For Canadian Demographics
    Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing has Canadian lifestyle consumer marketing lists to meet the needs of a diverse range of business interests. As with the United States, the Canadian lifestyle demographic is wide-ranging, comprising different genders, age groups, ethnicities, religious affiliations, income levels, hobbies, and other interests.

    This means as it does with any effective, strategic marketing strategy, that businesses should identify which demographics resonate with or need the products offered and then target them specifically. It makes for a much higher response rate and generates greater leads for sales and further development of consumer data. Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing had the Canadian lifestyle consumer marketing lists to meet different demographic criteria. And of course, there are geographical breakdowns and contact details in any format required, from physical mailing addresses to email addresses to telephone numbers and even cellular numbers for text-based/SMS messaging.

    For those who want to create their own direct mail marketing campaign but are unsure how to start, turnkey direct mail solutions guide clients through all stages. This one-stop-shop solution takes clients through the conception phase, the design phase, the actual printing of the materials, and, of course, distribution without needing additional help or vendors.

    If you want access to Canadian consumer lifestyle marketing lists, contact Sprint Data Solutions Worldwide Marketing. It’s a fast, effective way to get the results you want for increasing your sales. When you work with us, you’re supporting an American company owned and operated by a disabled veteran.

    Goal planning workshops & coaching for faith-based creative entrepreneurs

    Create & Multiply, Inspire, Integrity, Faith, Family, Freedom…this is what drives & defines us.”
    — Eric Michael Cap @ GOLD STREET
    BURBANK, CA, USA, January 7, 2022 / -- Gold Street today announced new goal planning course workshops, coaching & membership packages for faith-based creatives and entrepreneurs. Many entrepreneurs and small business owners start the new year with fresh goals and resolutions, but “life” and the day-to-day details of running a business can easily leave them stuck in the same place feeling frustrated & alone.

    “Start with the end in mind by determining your values & vision for the next 5-10 years.”

    While many entrepreneurs set goals for the year ahead, Eric’s approach is grounded in “starting with the end in mind.” By taking his clients through exercises that start with long-term goals and funneling them down to shorter-term ones, they are more able to identify their key priorities, allowing them to set goals that are more aligned with their values, and aid them in creating a life they love. For entrepreneurs who need both coaching and creative agency services, Gold Street is launching a “hybrid” membership offering done-for-you & done-with-you options to help you start, grow &/or scale your business.

    "Our core values and 5-10 year vision & goals determine what we say Yes or No to now.”

    Building values and mission-driven businesses has become increasingly popular, and where Eric is able to lend unique value is by basing his coaching & creative services on Christian values for faith-driven entrepreneurs. By relating biblical verses and lessons to entrepreneurship, Eric helps Christian creatives and entrepreneurs ground their work in stewardship.

    “Create & Multiply, Inspire, Integrity, Faith, Family, Freedom…this is what drives & defines us.”

    The Gold Street Goal Planning Workshop will take place on Saturday, January 15th from 9am-1pm, with a bonus break-out session from 1:30-3:30pm available for those wanting to dive deeper into their action plans. A “Gold” package with a 1:1 Coaching session & Productivity Course access can also be purchased. Those unable to attend online can purchase the workshop as a course anytime and access all worksheets & materials.

  • Mark Scholz, MD, Acclaimed Oncologist, Wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “BEST HEALTHCARE BOOK - 2022”

    “We're honored to include Mark Scholz, MD of Prostate Oncology Specialists Inc. into our BoLAA family.” ~Aurora DeRose

    LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES , January 7, 2022 / -- Mark Scholz, acclaimed medical oncologist and ​​medical director of Prostate Oncology Specialists Inc. in Marina del Rey, CA, wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “BEST HEALTHCARE BOOK - 2022”, according to Aurora DeRose, award coordinator for the Best of Los Angeles Award community.

    The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed six years ago and consists of over 7,600 professional members living and working in Southern California. It celebrates the best people, places, and things in Los Angeles with the slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.”

    “The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles, and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” expresses DeRose. "We're honored to include Mark Scholz of Prostate Oncology Specialists Inc. into our BoLAA family."

    “The Key to Prostate Cancer: 30 Experts Explain 15 Stages of Prostate Cancer” written by Mark Scholz, helps patients and doctors work together on a level playing field to intelligently discuss the latest options. This book directs patients to understand options and educate them about treatments specific to their stage of prostate cancer. Patients face a real dilemma when selecting among so many treatments with potentially irreversible consequences. Studies show that treatment choices based on partial information often lead to regret.

    When initially diagnosed with prostate cancer, the first step is to seek information. Patients struggle to pinpoint correct knowledge amidst a deluge of data overload. The "Paradox of Choice" can be diminished by staging cancer accurately. The pathway leading out of this confusion is to know your Stage of Blue. With a short, self-administered prostate cancer staging quiz, “The Key to Prostate Cancer” directs readers to targeted information that is stage-specific.

    A double board-certified medical oncologist, Mark C. Scholz, MD, serves as medical director of Prostate Oncology Specialists Inc. in Marina del Rey, CA, a medical practice exclusively focused on prostate cancer. He is also the executive director of the Prostate Cancer Research Institute. He received his medical degree from Creighton University in Omaha, NE. Dr. Scholz completed his Internal Medicine internship and Medical Oncology fellowship at the University of Southern California Medical Center.

    Dr. Scholz is a strong advocate for patient empowerment. He is the co-author of the book Invasion of the Prostate Snatchers: No More Unnecessary Biopsies, Radical Treatment or Loss of Potency and the author of The Key to Prostate Cancer: 30 Experts Explain 15 Stages of Prostate Cancer. He has written and produced extensive educational material on the subject of prostate cancer in various media including DVDs, blogs, newsletters, and pamphlets.

    Texas based media photography company Route Three Productions expands into documentary style photojournalism projects and other projects in order to expand base

    Newsrooms want to be able to send their reporters to the front lines of the big stories that happen each and everyday. We heard them and we are working with them to help deliver on that.”
    — Matt Pierce, Managing Editor
    CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, January 7, 2022 / -- What started out as a way to earn a little additional money during the pandemic has turned into a fairly large operation for husband and wife team Kelly and Matt Pierce who together started Route Three Productions in 2020. On Thursday, the company announced their new vision for 2022 and beyond as they focus on reaching more readers and viewers across multiple platforms.

    "Kelly and I decided to go really expand our presence in 2022 and look into really connecting with our customers and finding new clients across the board," Pierce said. "Kelly is an economics major and really loves data, so we are drawing off of her experience understanding that data to really broaden our horizons and expand our global reach."

    The company started out doing simple stock photography from their home in Texas. But now the pair is taking on projects such as deep dive photobooks into social issues, creating more video content for the internet, and making travel related publications about their experiences along the way. Their approach is simple: Never Leave A Story Untold.

    "When I am making my way around the country or the world I am always looking for the thing that makes you stop and think," says Matt Pierce, who is a long-time journalist and freelance photojournalist. "I like to make sure that my audience connects to the story, and the story connects to the audience."

    While working on projects the company will be partnering with media outlets to distribute content, cover news and current events directly from the field, and provide spot coverage to major news stories when they are close to a major story.

    "When I first started in this industry some 15 years ago technology was still pretty much evolving," Matt says. "Now with things like portable encoders, professional camera gear being more affordable, and the connectivity ever expanding it really gives us a way to connect with media partners better than ever before from almost anyplace on earth. Technology is really something."

    Matt says that with the technology gap becoming more and more filled-in every single day, they are able operate a complete newsroom directly from the field and really take local news consumers where they want to go--right to the heart of the story.

    "Newsrooms want to be able to send their reporters to the front lines of the big stories that happen each and everyday around the country," Matt says. "We heard them and we are working with them to help deliver on that."

    Matt says that the ability to send in video reports, write stories from the field, send back images in real-time and work to find sources during breaking news is really key to making a successful story that local news consumers really want to connect with.

    "We can do a live shot from almost anywhere, we can deliver a package with video, photos, text and script in almost no time at all," Matt says. "If we say that we are on-scene of a wildfire in the mountains and a local outlet wants to cover it, then they now have our resources in the field to be able to do that. We really are production company that connects with local markets and local newsrooms around the world."

    Matt says that while they recognize there is still a lot of pushback from trade groups about freelance production companies coming into the market, he isn't concerned too much with that.

    "News coverage and content solutions are changing all of the time and newsrooms are changing with it," he says. "I really do believe that as things evolve and that as things change in the news media industry we will set the bar for what comes next."

    While the company says that they are not giving up on their stock photography and editorial content, they are putting more of a focus on news coverage and building more of a presence in the publishing market sector.

    "These are exciting times to be in the news and documentary production industry," says Matt. "Our goal is find as many partners as we can a deliver as many stories as we can from the frontlines. I get excited about where our industry goes from here."

    So while the pandemic might have put a damper on some things, for this husband and wife duo it only sparked more creativity and it has given them time to do the research and develop a product that connects people around the world to stories that really touch their lives.

    To learn more about how Route Three Productions can help your local newsroom or to get information about their current projects they say that you can reach out to them directly and they will be happy to discuss it with you. They also say that they are will consider customized content and reporting scenarios for news outlets that have an idea for a story.

    "I am never closed minded to the idea of working with News Directors or other Managing Editors about stories they think might work well for them,' Matt says. "Because chances are that if it works well for them, that means it will work well for somebody else. This is all about collaboration and that is the part that I love the most."

    You can connect with Route Three Productions on their Facebook page, Twitter or on their website,

  • The Curious Tales of Four Persian Families - Persian Wars in Now Available Worldwide

    Persian Wars Vol 1 Book Cover

    Persian Wars' volume one tells the tales of four Persian Families in the aftermath of the Islamic Revolution of 1979.

    ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, January 6, 2022 / -- Bahman Akhavan has released his anthology 'Persian Wars' on different digital publishing platforms. The first volume of the book, titled 'Home and Away', is now available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other major online book stores.

    The book tells stories of Persian people, their ties to their ancient history and rich culture, and emphasizes the adverse effect of transformation on Persian families. Persians who left the country during the Islamic Revolution transitioned well into the Western culture yet suffered a cultural shock. The families faced relationships and identity crises and lacked a deep-rooted sense of traditional values and morals.

    The Persian Wars focuses on how, and in how many different ways, Persian people have successfully dealt with the cataclysmic revolution of 1979. Although many fled and sought asylum in other countries, many stayed and adapted to the Islamic cultural impositions in purely Persian ways. Reading this book will help readers teach positive values, ethics, and morality. The stories teach us how family dynamics help shape a person's life. Positive upbringing and support set the foundation for lifelong learning, behavior, and health. Family values enable us to realize the best version of ourselves, provide a vision and a path of purpose. The stories illustrate how a catalyst for this transformative realization may positively or negatively impact human behaviors. The writer states that it is not about an immigrant's plight! Instead, it summons years of struggle and strife to preserve a tradition and, at the same time, allow the person to progress.

    The author wishes the reader to become open-minded, fair, and non-judgmental and avoid biases and prejudices. Consequently, the readers will relate to these characters and be inspired by them and how they overcome their struggles and challenges. It helps them to change their life and bring spiritual peace.

    Akhavan hopes to inspire the readers to understand the intricacies of life and enable them to overcome their daily struggles. Understanding real-life situations and learning to cope makes them more resilient and courageous. The book is a must-read for the Persian community, other minority communities, anybody who is curious about or interested in other cultures, and anybody interested in reading stories that touch the heart. Thus, readers will gain insight into this complex culture of Persian families, how they get inspiration from other cultures. The transformation comes from an unlikely source that may positively or negatively impact lives.

    Similarly, accepting kindness from an unexpected person may touch hearts in unexpected ways. The message conveyed by the writer is to overcome one's prejudice through acceptance and understanding. Writing this inspiring book for people implies gaining inspiration and motivation from Irani families. Iranian individuals struggle in their day-to-day lives but find inspiration to move ahead in life one way or another. Every element in one's life adds up to influence the individual's goals and aspirations.

    About the Author
    Bahman Akhavan is a Persian artist and writer who has lived in the USA for over 50 years. The writer believes in eliminating the differences between cultures. The author states that to do this, we must remove ourselves from the prejudices that plague us, opening our minds to new opportunities and better acceptance.

  • Kimberly Beam Recounts Battle with Lymphoma and Developed a Meditation App for Teenagers

    Kimberly Joy Beam

    Cancer survivor bares all in What the Doctors Don’t Tell You and creates community for teenagers in her meditation app Zen for Teens

    UNITED STATES, January 6, 2022 / -- In What the Doctors Don’t Tell You: One Woman’s Journey Through Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, Kimberly Joy Beam shares her experiences battling and surviving cancer. Her memoir is a compelling work of creative non-fiction. She starts from the day she found the lump in her collar bone, through the process of diagnosis, and treatment. She walks readers through the journey, so they understand why she transformed and her passion to live the rest of her life. She also reveals how there are many aspects of the battle against cancer that doctors cannot convey, for these are roads the individual must walk by themself. In the pages of her book, Beam shares experiences and insights for those who are undergoing any life struggle – so that readers don’t feel alone.

    After Hodgkins, Beam was slammed with anxiety for the second time in her life. Her mother started to call it Post Traumatic Cancer Disorder and her doctor didn’t deny it. Beam wanted to work in a hospital and change the systemic problems she saw with the role, so she pursued a second master’s degree. In that study, she learned about meditation and mindfulness. After earning her degree, she attended weekly meditation programs, silent meditation retreats, studied breathwork under a certified breathwork instructor, and became a qualified Mindfulness Instructor through UMass Medical School. She learned she could quiet the anxiety. She found the best version of herself.

    Beam designed Zen for Teens as a place for teenagers to build their individual practice and create community. The top 25 subscribing users and sharers of the app, every quarter, are awarded the title Zenbassador. Zenbassadors are invited to a 2 hour Zoom meeting with Beam and are invited to add content to the app. Zanbassadors are also invited to give feedback on the app itself, and thus help shape future versions of the app as it is developed. Meditation has been proven to be an effective integrative treatment for mental health issues, in conjunction with counseling, therapy and medical treatment. This app is available on iTunes and Google Play.

    "Every experience in life contributes to who you are becoming. Every experience has the potential to change you and help create your future. I didn’t want cancer and didn’t want treatment. I blamed God for not healing me. I also see how it is one of the most glorious and terrible things I have ever been through. I changed the course of my life because of getting sick and going through treatment. It also contributed to my finding mindfulness and that led to my creating the meditation app. I would never have built Zen for Teens if I hadn’t gotten sick and walked the lonely roads I walked. I never would have built it if I hadn’t learned for myself the power that meditation holds in keeping anxiety in check," Beam says.

    About the Author
    Kimberly Joy Beam holds a Bachelor's degree in English, Middle School and Secondary Education from Gordon College. She has an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College and a Master's in Social Work from West Chester University. Beam is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Pennsylvania and a qualified mindfulness instructor through U-Mass Medical School's Center for Mindfulness. Beam was a middle school and high school English teacher for 12 years. She also worked, for five years, as a hospital social worker mainly on the pediatric, maternity, and infant ICU floors. She was assigned to the oncology floor for the last year she was working in the hospital. One of the roles she had at the start of hospital career was working in the emergency department, helping to place adolescents and adults in appropriate mental health treatment.

    —™ led the charge, with close to 18 million visits to the site, with users consuming close to 6.5 million on-site videos—

    Radar continues to chart a trajectory that most publishers dream of.”
    — Melissa Cronin, EMG’s President and Chief Operating Officer
    NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 5, 2022 / -- Empire Media Group, Inc. (“EMG” or the “Company”), a dynamic privately owned global media conglomerate of knowledge-based brands and an innovator of content experiences across different platforms, today announced its Entertainment Network registered record traffic in December 2021, with more than 43 million visits to its sites.

    At a time when engagement and traffic are falling across the competitive set, collectively, the audiences of™,™, Front Page Detectives™, The Royal Observer™, and Morning Honey™ consumed more than 101 million page-views.™ beat out its sister site™, with 17.8 million sessions (up 12.72% month-on-month) compared to OK!’s 17.6 million (up 33% month-on-month). OK! logged 9.1 million video views on-site in December alone.

    Of OK!’s total audience, 30.95% were first-time visitors to the site; 9.87% of Radar’s total audience were new users.

    Both are record highs for™ and™ since EMG acquired the brands in 2021 and 2020, respectively. The noteworthy traffic numbers also exceed traffic numbers for many years under past ownership.

    “Radar continues to chart a trajectory that most publishers dream of. As a former Editor in Chief of the site myself, I have been thrilled to see the brand return to its former glory and hit new heights under Editor-In-Chief Ryan Naumann. Radar has one of the most highly influential, loyal, and engaged audiences out there, and for good reason,” said Melissa Cronin, EMG’s President and Chief Operating Officer.

    “Our unique blend of world exclusive reporting and ‘fresh intelligence,’ combined with compelling long-form storytelling about Hollywood and pop culture has Radar once again dominating the celebrity conversation. While other celebrity sites fade away, Radar is only getting more dynamic.”

    Features published in December included “Last Call At the Viper Room: The Secret History of America’s Most Notorious – And Cursed – Rock Dive Bar.” Correspondent Nick Harding uncovered fresh leads in one of Hollywood’s most baffling cold cases, absolving movie star Johnny Depp from the decades-old conspiracy that he plotted to murder a rival.

    Radar also investigated “Millionaire Nuns On The Run,” a wild investigation into eight Catholic nuns who secretly sold their convent to become instant millionaires, setting off a chain of events that included a love triangle, the betrayal of the man who helped them abscond, a child abuse scandal, a vicious court battle and a vengeful bishop brought down by his own sins.

    “Throughout this period of growth and acceleration, Radar has consistently showcased why it is a must-read for the pop culture obsessed,” said Mr. Naumann. “Last week alone, with the death of Betty White, we were able to draw upon on our near 20-year archives of reporting to provide the most comprehensive and detailed coverage of the death of a true Hollywood trailblazer.”

    Radar also provided gavel-to-gavel coverage of the Ghislaine Maxwell trial, seven years after Radar was the first to bring the Jeffrey Epstein case to the national conversation back in 2014.

    Ms. Cronin also highlighted the growth of EMG startup sites, which registered 3.3 million visits under Editor-in-Chief Alex Lang, and, which grew to 2.5 million visitors under Editor-in-Chief Jaclyn Roth. The Royal Observer™ takes you behind the high walls, gilded gates, and palace façades and into the very heart of the most famous families alive, while Front Page Detectives™ is a modern interpretation of the defunct true crime magazine of the same name that was published between 1924 and 1995.

    EMG’s numbers bucked a recent report that showed engagement with news content plummeted last year compared to 2020. Various metrics illustrated in the report showed the dwindling popularity of the content, specifically with website visits for the top-performing news websites in the U.S. tracked by Similarweb in the first 11 months of 2021 dropping 8%.

  • I Wish I Had Those Gasoline Pellets

    Who is this homeless man and where does he get these magic pellets?

    RED DEER, ALBERTA, CANADA, January 5, 2022 / -- I Wish I Had Those Gasoline Pellets
    Who is this homeless man and where does he get these magic pellets?

    The story will hook the reader from the first few pages and keep them interested until the last. This is a book that you can’t put down after you have started reading.

    In “I Wish I Had Those Gasoline Pellets”, Kegerreis expertly portrays how someone’s life can be turned upside-down in an instant. In this case that of Air Force Captain Oley who is on top of the world one minute but soon finds himself in the bottom of society.

    But when you are at the bottom, there is only one way to go.

    With emphasis on details and drama, Kegerreis tells about how Washington eventually comes into possession of a commodity that becomes the obsession of many. Kegerreis weaves a tale that will take readers from intrigue, mystery, then finally to an ending that will leave them wanting more.

    About the Author

    Carl Kegerreis served in the U.S. Army as a sergeant at a missile base in Ohio before moving on to the CSX Transportation Railroad where he served as a federal officer before retiring.

    Despite his line of work he likes to write and has even penned a children’s book called “Searching for Elock”. He has also been awarded by the Marquis Who’s Who Publication Board.

    He lived with his wife, Sandra, in Ohio until her passing in March of 2021 due to Alzheimer’s Disease, after 58 years of marriage and three children. He now plans to donate all the royalties earned by this book to Alzheimer's research.
