This quirky new flavor is available exclusively at the Ohio State Fair, which opens July 24 and runs through August 4 at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus. This one-of-a-kind ice cream features creamy maple Velvet Ice Cream swirled with maple-coated bacon pieces. It was inspired by Ohio's rich agriculture, which is the focus of the Ohio State Fair.

More information is available www.VelvetIceCream.com or www.OhioStateFair.com.

"We are excited that Velvet Ice Cream has stepped up to pay homage to that heritage with its new Maple Bacon Ice Cream."

    Velvet's Maple Bacon Ice Cream, along with its much more traditional ice cream flavors of chocolate and vanilla, are available via Cox Concessions in the Ohio State Fair Dairy Products Building.

Velvet produces more than 5 million gallons of ice cream every year from its headquarters on the 25-acre grounds of Ye Olde Mill.

    (PRBuzz.com) July 18, 2013 -- Gospel music infused with a boogie woogie flare will be center stage in Marshall this Sunday, July 21, when "The Birthplace of Boogie Woogie" presents the Boogie Gospel Jubilee, a marriage of two beloved musical genres.

    All the way from Europe, the French pianist, blues and boogie woogie master, Philippe LeJeune, will bring his talents to Marshall and join many of Marshall's finest musical artists for this show. LeJeune, a classically-trained pianist, immersed himself in boogie woogie, but never lost his love for gospel music. He's traveled all over the world, and, because Marshall has been nationally recognized as the birthplace of the boogie woogie style of music, it was only natural that he visit and perform here.

    Concert organizer Jack Canson said, "We are thrilled to be able to bring one of the premiere European artists to Marshall. He incorporates four or five genres of music, jazz, gospel, blues and of course boogie woogie. He's thrilling to see perform."

    "We wanted to hold the event at a time when people could attend church, go have some lunch, and then come to the Marshall Convention Center for this great show," said Canson. "It was important to make sure it didn't keep people from church. Even visitors to town may want to attend a local church before the show."

    Marshall's local artists performing on Sunday include Joseph Parrish, Laura Perry, Mack Guice, LaDonna Gault, the Oscar Jernigan Band, Anthony Robinson, Lisa Barron, Winston Hall, and the Buffin Family.

    The performance will be one that people of all ages will enjoy and general admission is free. The Gospel Boogie Jubilee will be held at the Marshall Convention Center, 2501 E. End Blvd. on Sunday, from 2-4 p.m.". For more concert information call (903) 217-7486.

    A complete list of current events, lodging reservations and information about Marshall is available on www.VisitMarshallTexas.org or by calling the Marshall Convention & Visitors Bureau at 903-702-7777.

    San Bernardino, Ca. (PRBuzz.com) July 18, 2013 -- TVC+Latino, a national bi-lingual television network whose programing is available to over 22 million television households in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Fresno, Philadelphia, San Diego and shortly San Antonio has made a programing decision to replace our Sunday morning infomercial time slots with church and religious programing.

    Karen Deaquino, Vice President of Programming for TVC+Latino stated "This is in response to direct input from our listeners via phone calls, facebook and email informing us that instead of airing what most channels air Sunday morning (infomercials which we currently do), they would prefer a range of religious programming. When we did some in-depth research with a select sample, feedback was that if they wanted to watch infomercials Sunday morning, there were almost unlimited stations to watch, but they wanted TVC to provide a choice for them for a more a Sunday morning spiritual viewing experience."

    Ms. Deaquino continued "We are reaching out to various Church groups primarily in our viewing area that have the capability to produce quality video content. Our reach is quite large. In addition to broadcasting on television, using IPTV technology we simulcast all our programming on the internet on www.tvcmaslatino.com. This means anyone in the United States (or world) who has internet connectivity can view all our programming real time on their computers, i-pads, i-phones or android devices."

    Ms. Deaquino added "In addition to placing religious programming across our entire network, we have the ability to place content is specific markets, not nationally. We already have worked out arrangements with 2 large church groups, and are excited to be working towards providing content to our viewers that is of high interest to them. If any church group is interested in learning more, please contact our Vice President of Sales, David Walsh at 720-891-1804 and he will discuss in detail our approach."

    Gatlinburg, Tenn; July 18, 2013: ...Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies is celebrating the historical birth of an African Black Footed Baby Penguin. This great little bundle of joy came into the earth on May 4, 2013 to the parents of Madonna "Madon" (father) and Tara (mother). The precious penguin weighed in at 57g and now weighs 2000g. The penguin is doing well and is now being monitored around the clock by the experienced Ripley Husbandry team.

    "We are so excited about this birth. We have been waiting years for this exciting moment. This is a historical event at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies. Any birth is a beautiful thing here at the aquarium, but the birth of an endangered animal is truly spectacular. Best of all, this baby is ridiculously cute. Everyone needs to see it," said Ryan DeSear, general manger of Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies.

    Every visitor is able to see the baby penguin in the nursery habitat in Penguin Playhouse as part of the tour through the aquarium. The baby penguin is a Must-See and Added Value to Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies regular admission.

    Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds (SANCCOB) is a non-profit seabird rehabilitation center based in Cape Town, Africa that helps rebuild habitats in South Africa. Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies continues in their efforts and support of the African Black-footed Penguin as part of the Species Survival Plan of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.

    In 2010, Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies added African Black Footed Penguins as a part of the $5 million Ripley's Penguin Playhouse. The exhibit was recently named one of the 10 best places to see Penguins by 10Best.com, a division of USA Today Travel.

    Quote by 10Best.com: "Penguin Playhouse at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies in Gatlinburg might be the world's best penguin exhibits. The $5 million project includes indoor and outdoor exhibit with innovative viewing options. Crawl through transparent tunnels to see the birds from below or pop-up to see them nose to beak,"

    In Ripley's Penguin Playhouse, burrowed nesting boxes and mud holes have been built into the rocky habitat for nest building. Mature birds lay two eggs in the nest, which is protected from the sun and most predators, and both parents incubate the eggs and feed the chicks for two to four months. African penguins breed in huge, noisy colonies and the mating pair stays together in a tight bond for their entire life.

    African penguins are considered "Vulnerable" which means they are facing a high risk of extinction in the wild. Major reasons include depletion of their food from overfishing and pollution. Since 1930, the African penguin population has dropped from an estimated one million down to 150,000.

    Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies is located at traffic light #5 on the Parkway in Gatlinburg, TN and is open 365 days a year. For ticket information, call 888-240-1358 or visit www.ripleysaquariumofthesmokies.com .

Thousands of exotic sea creatures live in its 1.4 million gallons of water. The aquarium is known for its shark exhibit that features 11-foot sharks and one of the longest underwater tunnels in the world.

    (PRBuzz.com) July 18, 2013 -- Remax Founder Dave Liniger said today that he believes U.S. elected officials will not renew The Mortgage Debt Relief Act of 2007. Liniger made the comments at the annual Breakthrough Real Estate Conference in Phoenix Arizona.

    If the act is not renewed Liniger says "Short sales will come to an end". Louisville Real Estate Agent Bob Sokoler, Owner of the Sokoler Medley Team in Louisville Kentucky says "With out a Debt Relif Act, homeowners approved for a short sale will have to pay taxes on the bank's forgiven portion of the homeowners loan". Sokoler explains "Since 2007, The Debit Relief Act has kept taxpayers who have been granted a short sale on their principal residence from having to pay taxes on the forgiven debt. This means that if a homeowner is considering a short sale, now is the time to contact a realtor. If they wait and the Dept Relief act is not renewed distressed homeowners will face additional IRS taxes on a Short Sale.

    Sokoler is a Certified Distressed Property Expert helping Louisville area homeowners for more than 9 years.

    Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Invests $1.2M in BCT Partners and Frontline Solutions to Improve the Health & Success of Young Men of Color

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    Contacts: Teresa Watkins, BCT Partners, twatkins@bctpartners.com, (610) 331-0975
    Micah Gilmer, Frontline Solutions, (919) 699-1964

    NEWARK, NJ (PRBuzz.com) July 18, 2013 -- BCT Partners and Frontline Solutions announced today that they have been awarded $1.2 million to provide advisory services and national technical assistance on behalf of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's $9.5 million Forward Promise initiative. Forward Promise aims to vastly expand the potential for boys and young men of color to grow up healthy, obtain a good education, and find meaningful employment.

    Frontline Solutions Senior Partner Marcus Littles believes growing national efforts to invest in and support men of color largely result from groundwork laid by BCT Partners and Frontline Solutions. "Since 2005, BCT and Frontline have coordinated with our philanthropic and public-sector partners to increase opportunities for males of color," says Littles. "Managing these initiatives is a tremendous responsibility for us, and we're excited to build on this momentum by supporting Forward Promise."
    BCT's Chairman and CEO Dr. Randal D. Pinkett agrees. "As minority-owned companies, we take pride in the fact that we can lend our expertise and services to empower males of color. We look forward to continuing to build our growing practice for children, families, and communities throughout the country."

    As partners in the Forward Promise initiative, Frontline and BCT will support 15 Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) grantees over 30 months to help bring their projects to scale, and possibly replicate them in other cities. Frontline is helping RWJF to manage the initiative and serve as a thought partner, while BCT Partners is responsible for assessing the grantees' needs, coordinating the provision of technical assistance, and creating a community of practice that will allow the grantees to share ideas and models of success with one another.

    BCT, which is currently supporting several national demonstration programs, and Frontline previously received a $500,000 investment to serve as the national implementation partner for the Black Male Engagement ("BMe") initiative, which represents a growing network of inspired and engaged black men from all walks of life and their friends who do their part to strengthen communities. As implementation partners of the BMe initiative, Frontline and BCT have led the expansion of the vibrant network from two to four cities (Philadelphia, Detroit, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh). BMe is supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Open Society Foundations, and the Heinz Endowments.

    In response to the overwhelming statistics on boys and men of color struggling around employment, education, and health, this past April, more than two dozen foundation and nonprofit leaders including RWJF pledged to take collective action on these issues. Convened and facilitated by Frontline and supported by BCT Partners, the alliance agreed to evaluate promising approaches, advocate for effective public policy and systems change, and invest in these young men as assets for America's future. RWJF's Forward Promise investments complement commitments from this growing network of funders working to secure healthy and successful lives for the nation's boys and young men of color.

    Cypress, CA (PRBuzz.com) July 18, 2013 -- At the upcoming SET Broadcast & Cable Show, FOR-A Corporation of America will demonstrate a number of its video and audio solutions in Booth F1. This year marks the 22nd SET Broadcast & Cable Show, which will take place in São Paulo, Brazil at the Exhibition Centre Immigrants from August 20-22.

    One of the highlights of the FOR-A booth will be the FT-ONE 4K variable frame rate camera. The FT-ONE employs FOR-A's "FT1-CMOS" high-sensitivity color sensor and has the ability to record up to 900 frames per second. The camera captures images as uncompressed raw data on the system's internal memory, which has a recording capacity of 9.4 seconds. This data is then stored on one of two hot-swappable SSD cartridges, each of which is capable of storing 84 seconds of full 4K resolution images. Since its introduction last year, the FT-ONE has been used for a variety of high-end sports broadcast and digital cinematography applications, including the championship football game earlier this year in New Orleans, professional boxing, rugby, soccer and ice cross downhill competitions.

    Another camera that FOR-A will showcase is the FLOVEL FZ-B1 high-sensitivity HD unit. The newest addition to FLOVEL's extensive line of high-end HD specialty cameras, the new FZ-B1 has at its core a 2/3-inch CMOS 1.3 megapixel color image sensor. The compact camera records in 1080/59.94i, 1080/50i, 720p/60p and 720/50p formats and has an unprecedented low-light sensitivity of only 0.01 lux. Superior HD color imagery coupled with low-light sensitivity makes the compact camera ideal for demanding high-resolution applications, such a day/night nature video production.

    FOR-A's HVS-390HS compact, cost-effective video switcher will also be shown. The unit includes 16 HD/SD-SDI inputs and eight outputs (expandable to 24 inputs and 13 outputs), with frame synchronizers for all inputs. The HVS-390HS was first introduced last year, with new capabilities recently announced. The new functionality, referred to as a MINI M/E, is an extension of the aux bus system that allows operators to deploy any aux bus transition with cuts, mixes, or wipes, and display a keyer complete with DVE functions. These features are offered as standard in the HVS-390HS.

    FOR-A will also show its newest line of video switchers, the HVS-XT100 and HVX-XT110 HD/SD portable units. Shown for the first time in Latin America, the HVS-XT100 comes with a separate main unit and control panel, while the HVS-XT110 features a compact, integrated design.

    The award-winning FA-1010 signal processor will also be in FOR-A's booth. With 10 video inputs and outputs, the new FA-1010 offers multi-channel routing between sources as well as effective video and audio signal processing for line, relay, reporting, production, editing, and delivery applications. Providing extreme connectivity and functionality, the unit is referred to as THE Processor. Another signal processor that will displayed by FOR-A is the FA-9520 3G/HD/SD dual channel multipurpose unit. The FA-9520 is suited for a variety of applications, including master control, mobile production, post production services and live production.

    Other products to be showcased in FOR-A's booth include the MV-1620HS HD/SD high resolution multi-viewer. The compact (1RU) unit features a customizable layout, audio meter, and title and timer display. The IVS-710HS HD/SD video stabilizer will also be demoed. The unit provides real-time correction of unwanted camera movement and vibrations. FOR-A's lightweight, compact VTW-330HS HD/SD character generator and FRC-30 HD/SD frame rate converter will be showcased as well.

    "Brazil's Broadcast & Cable Show is an exciting event for us," said Mario Rodriguez, FOR-A's Latin American Sales Manager. "The show attracts key decision makers in television engineering, radio, and telecommunications in Latin America, and is a great chance for FOR-A to show off our new and popular solutions in a region that's so important to us."

    Buffalo, NY (PRBuzz.com) July 18, 2013 -- Energy consulting firm BidURenergy, Inc. (BUE) announced that its premier auction platform now hosts 37 reliable energy suppliers who compete to offer the lowest energy rates to the firm's clientele.

    Energy consulting firm BidURenergy, Inc. (BUE) made an exciting announcement this week that its premier auction platform, known as PowerPit!, now hosts 37 reliable electricity and natural gas suppliers. The energy suppliers compete to offer the lowest electricity and natural gas energy rates to BUE's commercial and industrial clients. The suppliers offer their energy services across the nation, serving the firm's thousands of clients in more than 20 U.S. states.

    The consulting firm's auction platform produces significant energy cost savings for BUE's clients through the firm's blind auction format. A blind auction maximizes cost savings because each supplier does not know what the others are bidding. This forces each supplier to enter the competition at their lowest possible bid, without the chance for incremental bidding. As a result, the auction yields the absolute lowest energy rates to BUE's clients.

    Since the firm was founded in 2008, it has been expanding its influence on the energy market of deregulated states. Headquartered in Buffalo, New York, the firm has expanded to almost 50 employees. The consultants at BUE are working to provide clients across the nation with their energy management and save them significant money in the long run.

    "Clients of BidURenergy can rest assured that they will never pay more than the market price for their energy load. All too often, I see clients frustrated that they signed with a supplier on their own at an unreasonable rate. When they use our auction platform they will save 15, 20, or possibly even 25 percent on their energy costs. Clients come to us for help and are always happy with the results," says Matthew Lynett, Senior Procurement Advisor at BidURenergy.

    BidURenergy now boasts 37 reliable suppliers on its energy management platform which allows for even more competition and even lower rates across the United States. All of the firm's suppliers have an excellent rating with the Better Business Bureau and provide safe, reliable service to their customers.

    Prospective clients are invited to use BidURenergy's comprehensive energy management platform. The firm has extensive experience with brokering energy supply contracts that save clients time and money. The firm also offers bill auditing services, renewable energy options, and demand-side management consulting to provide clients with additional monetary savings.
