Intuitive, Exorcist, and Cult Rescuer Laverne Denyer to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

YUBA CITY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It's truly amazing how vulnerable we are and yet how strong we are when we choose to be. We're delicate and resilient at the same time.

We all share a desire for a happier life and understanding of why we are here, who we are, what we hope to be and how we can get there, but we're hardwired to find a way to make sense of our world and interpret it according to what we believe. Our idealism can lead us to reject societal conventions and emotional upheaval can leave us vulnerable to potentially dangerous solutions.

Laverne Denyer is a psychic and medical intuitive, author, exorcist and cult rescuer. She uses all her intuition and skills to help people get beyond the pain that brought them to this dilemma.

“It’s about their truth, their understanding,” says Denyer. “Together, we walk them from guilt and hatred to pride and joy. That is a magnificent change. That's what I endeavor to help people to do. I'm a health facilitator. People either reject it or they are ready and allow it to create something new.”

After years of research and holistic practice, Denyer created a textbook for the physical and energetic components of a living body titled Living Energy Systems, which is being republished and will be available through Hay House and Balboa Press. Denyer is also working on the upcoming release of her newest book Ghosts, Demons, and Other Nasties.

According to Denyer, energy can be used for good or evil, pain or joy. She’s learned how and when to look beyond the physical.

“A woman came to me who was in a Satanic cult,” recalls Denyer. “She finally realized it was wrong and she was terrified. She asked me, "Can you help me get away from them? I can't do it on my own.’ I worked with her, I asked others to send her energies of protection and courage. I counseled her why she was there to begin with? What was she getting from it?”

It all culminated, says Denyer, when the cult sent a demon they worshiped to attack her, and she faced her first demonic psychic battle over possession of this woman's soul.

“It was like you see in the movies where people are throwing energy balls and attacking and screaming,” recalls Denyer. “I finally won, the girl was released, and she was able to leave.”

Denyer says she’s always been different but didn't realize how different until she was eight years old.

“I thought everybody saw and knew the world the way I did. When I learned they didn't, it surprised me. It took me a long time to understand and my parents were terrified. When I was nine, they had told me, ‘Stop imagining things!’ I tried to be a good girl but I became so lonely and so depressed. At 12, I decided I wasn’t doing that anymore and I started studying on my own.

Denyer says she’s learned not hide something from a client that feels uncomfortable, because if it comes through, it's proper for the person to hear it.

“You can lie to me all you want, but I will not allow you to lie to yourself,” says Denyer. “I will put it in your face every time you do. It makes them uncomfortable at first, but they are so much more productive afterward. They're happy with themselves for finally telling themselves the truth, because that's what it's all about.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Laverne Denyer in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on June 19th at 4pm EDT

United States Government Partners with NTI to Fill Available Positions

This is a great opportunity to work from home in full-time or part-time seasonal positions for the government. We are looking for 500-plus new candidates to be recommended for the latest positions”

— Michelle Simone, Senior Director of Client Services, NTI

BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, June 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Right now, there are an estimated 52.6 million people in the United States speaking Spanish and if the population projects are right, that number will increase to 132.8 million by 2050.

Currently, the United States is only second to Mexico’s 121 million Spanish speakers, according to the Instituto Cervantes research center. With increased growth, there is an immediate and a future need for the government to hire bilingual employees to work in their call centers.

In 2018, the United States Department of Labor found Americans with disabilities' unemployment rate was at 8 percent compared to 3.7 for able-bodied Americans. Overall, 65.9 percent of the available able-bodied Americans were employed to compared to only 19 percent of the available Americans with disabilities.

To address the need of agencies to fill positions, the government partnered with NTI, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to help Americans with disabilities back into the workplace. NTI and the Social Security Administration use the Ticket to Work program.

“NTI has been helping Americans with disabilities find employment for more than 25 years,” according to Michael Sanders, NTI’s Director of Marketing. “Our online training, mentoring and job placement services have placed more than 3,500 people with severe disabilities in government agencies.”

Recently, NTI’s mentors have been inducted into the Susan B. Daniels Mentoring Hall of Fame in Washington, DC.

One agent, Zeanne, who was placed in a work-at-home role by NTI within a government agency, said, “I've been blessed to have worked from home since 2004 on one of NTI’s government contracts. Being in a wheelchair meant my job options were very limited, even though I’m bilingual. But now I make an income and I can better myself.  My whole family sees that a physical disability doesn’t mean you have to let your mind be wasted. They’re proud of my work ethic and I love that.”

While the United States is experiencing record-low unemployment, there are still 74,000 unemployed Spanish speaking Americans with disabilities looking for jobs.

“This is a great opportunity to work from home in full-time or part-time seasonal positions for the government,” said NTI’s Michelle Simone, Senior Director of Client Services. “We are looking for 500-plus new candidates to be recommended for the latest positions and receive free training.” 

NTI has found when the government or companies hire its clients, the effects are felt through the employee’s community.

“We make an active effort to recruit within impoverished communities throughout the United States. When someone gets hired, that helps everyone in their community,” said Sanders. “With a new financial influx present, people are able to spend money in their communities. It creates a positive chain reaction.

“Additionally, we have had people go through our program, obtain jobs in government call centers, and move up into management and supervisory positions. We believe that people deserve a second chance. Our work with the government is giving people that chance.”

Changing the lives of children with special needs

Pro surfer and board shaper Guy Takayama coming to North Carolina surf camps in July

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC, USA, June 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Preparing a child to meet the challenges of life is a complicated journey. The journey is extraordinarily complex and frequently laden with obstacles for children with special needs.

Surf camps by non-profit Indo Jax Charities serve children facing a variety of life challenges, including visual impairment, autism, cancer, loss of parents, and juvenile diabetes. New on the summer schedule for 2019 is a session for Special Olympians.

“We always start wherever the child is in their life. Every child has a different goal,” said Jack Viorel, founder of Indo Jax Surf Charities. “Some children are working on mobility; others might be working on communication. Some are working on fear. We work on whatever the child needs. We don’t have a set agenda. When you do that you can always be successful.”

Twelve years and more than 5,000 students later, Viorel’s unique curriculum has gained international media attention and accolades from both parents and children.

“The most powerful thing we do is to help children get out of their comfort zone and succeed,” said Viorel. “When I was a school teacher, I always knew surfing could be used to build confidence and self-esteem in children with special needs.”

World champion surfer, artist, and surfboard shaper Guy Takayama will join the Indo Jax team for the Visually Impaired and Special Olympics camps in mid-July. “He has worked with blind children and Special Olympians through his charity in California,” said Viorel. “Guy also handcrafted a surfboard to help support our North Carolina camps and had it signed by famous surfers such as David Nuuhiwa and Jericho Poppler.” The Takayama board will be auctioned at a charity event later this summer.

No child is turned away from the special needs surf camps due to inability to pay. “Thanks to individuals and organizations like Live Oak Bank, United Healthcare, the Jordan Spieth Foundation, and Blockade Runner Beach Resort, we can keep up with most of the demand,” said Viorel. “The last two years, our Autism camps filled and were closed to new registrations. We’re still working to hold more programs to accommodate the needs of these children.”

When a person is involuntarily committed in North Carolina, the law requires an examination by a second physician within 24 hours of arrival at the facility.

The Law Office of Attorney Janet Pittman Reed (N/A:N/A)

The Court noted that prior decisions addressing this issue found such a mandate to exist where 'there was a statutory mandate that automatically preserved an issue for appellate review'”

— Janet Pittman Reed, lawyer in North Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a recent North Carolina proceeding, the North Carolina Court of Appeals unanimously vacated the trial court’s order authorizing continued involuntary commitment of a person. The Court found that respondent need not show that the lack of examination by a second physician resulted in prejudice to the respondent; appellate relief is automatic upon a showing that the statute N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) was violated.

Attorney Janet Reed, based in North Carolina, has published a comment that reviews this case. The complete article will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) provides that anyone who is involuntarily committed must receive an examination by a second physician within 24 hours of arrival at the facility. Unfortunately, this did not happen for the respondent in: In the matter of E.D. Therefore, the North Carolina Court of Appeals unanimously vacated the trial court’s order authorizing continued commitment. In so ruling, the Court of Appeals held that respondent need not show that the lack of examination by a second physician resulted in prejudice to the respondent, rather the appellate relief is automatic upon showing that the statute was violated. Court of Appeals also held that “N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) was the type of statutory mandate for which the right to appellate review is automatically preserved regardless of a failure to object in the trial court.”

North Carolina Supreme Court reviewed the Court of Appeals holdings and concluded that as a threshold matter, the assigned error is not automatically preserved. Supreme Court did note that “it is well established that ‘when a trial court acts contrary to a statutory mandate and a defendant is prejudiced thereby, the right to appeal the court’s action is preserved, notwithstanding defendant’s failure to object at trial.’” The critical issue, however, is that such automatic preservation occurs “when a statute ‘is clearly mandatory, and its mandate is directed to the trial court’ …” Here, the State and respondent disagreed as to whether N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) is directed to the trial court. The State argued that any such mandate must be express direct the mandate to the trial court. Respondent argued “that the Court of Appeals was correct to conclude that the issue was automatically preserved because the district court, presumably through its role in conducting hearings, is implicitly called upon to supervise state health care facilities when people are involuntarily committed to those facilities.”

The Supreme Court concluded the State’s argument was the correct one. The Court noted that prior decisions addressing this issue found such a mandate to exist where “there was a statutory mandate that automatically preserved an issue for appellate review when the mandate was directed to the trial court either: (1) by requiring a specific act by the trial judge, . . . ; or (2) by requiring specific courtroom proceedings that the trial judge has authority to direct . . . .” (internal citations omitted). Here, N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) provides that “within 24 hours of arrival at a 24- hour facility described in G.S. 122C-252, the respondent shall be examined by a physician.” Thus, the Court concluded that such mandate was not directed at the trial court and the issue was not automatically preserved for appeal. Having concluded the threshold issue, the Court did not reach the question of whether one must show prejudice from violation of N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a)’s mandate to be afforded relief.

The case is In the matter of E.D., No. 125PA18.

GFBTU and IDWF Signed MOU on Protection of Domestic Workers’ Rights in Bahrain

General Federation of Bahraini Trade Unions (GFBTU) and IDWF signing Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on cooperation to organize migrant domestic workers in Bahrain

The event was witnessed by over 30 representatives of the ILO, trade unions, domestic workers organizations and other labour organizations.

On the Eve of the IDWD commemorating the adoption of C189, the IDWF and GFBTU signed a MoU to promote migrant domestic workers’ rights and welfare in Bahrain.

We need IDWF and domestic workers’ leaders to reach out to workers and provide training for domestic workers so that they know their rights.”

GFBTU and IDWF Signed MOU on Protection of Domestic Workers’ Rights in Bahrain

On the Eve of the International Domestic Workers Day commemorating the adoption of the International Labour Convention 189 Decent Work for Domestic Workers (C189) on June 16, 2011, the International Domestic Workers Federation (IDWF) and the General Federation of Bahrain Trade Unions (GFBTU) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote migrant domestic workers’ rights and welfare in Bahrain.

The MoU is a milestone to strengthen the collaboration between GFBTU and IDWF to help migrant domestic workers in Bahrain by “empowering them through education, organizing and advocacies and to help them in their urgent problems which for many instances can be remedied by legal assistance”, stated in the MoU. This MoU is the result of 2 years of collaboration with their partners including the FES MENA Regional Trade Union Program, to exchange information and knowledge on issues faced by migrant domestic workers and examine various practices to address them.

There are around 100,000 migrant domestic workers in Bahrain. Since 2017, reforms were introduced in Bahrain followed by introduction of of a dual/tripartite unified standard contract for domestic workers. However, it needs further reform to outline working hours, minimum wage and rest time, in additional to an enforcement mechanism.

The signing of the MoU is organized on the 15th June, 2019 at the ILO in Geneva by Mr. A. Qader A. Karim Al Shehabi, Deputy General Secretary of GFBTU and Ms. Myrtle Witbooi, the president of IDWF. “We need IDWF and domestic workers’ leaders to reach out to workers and provide training for domestic workers so that they know their rights.”, said Mr. Shehabi at the MoU signing event. “IDWF will ensure all domestic workers are protected in whatever country they work. This is a great occasion and we hope it will be the start of many agreements between us. “ Ms. Witbooi told the participants at the MoU signing event.

The MoU is for two years and can be extended. It will bring the two organizations to implement joint activities together.

The event was witnessed by over 30 representatives of the ILO, trade unions, domestic workers organizations and other labour organizations. Ms Anna Biondi, Deputy Director of the ILO ACTRAV in her address, stressed that it is important that the topic of migration is being covered, “when we take up the challenges of migration in our activities, we are dealing with workers’ rights. This will give us the possibility to deal with labour protection at different levels and across countries, through collective bargaining whenever possible."

June 16 International Domestic Workers Day in Geneva marks by a strong message to support an ILO Convention to stop GBV

We must have a Convention with strong Recommendation. This Convention will add to Convention 189 and that will make us a strong weapon for domestic workers. But it must not be on paper only. Those Conventions must become a reality for domestic workers.

Come and celebrate the International Domestic Workers’s Day! Learn about the struggle and the victories of the domestic workers around the world!

Let’s support the ILO Convention on ending Violence and Harassment in the World of Work!

Domestic workers from across the globe will share their stories to explain why an ILO convention with a recommendation is critical to help to put end to GBV.

Governments must support a new convention to enable domestic workers a fair playing field to achieve rights, dignity and respect.”

— Myrtle Witbooi, IDWF President

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, June 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — June 16 International Domestic Workers Day in Geneva marks by a strong message to governments to support an ILO Convention to stop gender-based violence against domestic workers

This year on June 16 at 10 am in Geneva, domestic workers leaders of the International Domestic Workers Federation led by Myrtle Witbooi, the President, will gather at the IUF, a global union federation for food workers to celebrate the 8th International Domestic Workers Day and to remind governments about their unfinished business to stop gender-based violence in the world of work.

Domestic workers from across the globe will share their stories of resilience and struggle to explain why an ILO convention with a recommendation is critical to help them to put end to gender-based violence. The event will be a great opportunity for all, including governments, employers, trade unionists and advocates, to interact and learn from domestic workers themselves about their victories and challenges from Asia, Latin America, and Africa to Europe.

Eight years ago, governments, employers and workers jointly gave birth to the ILO Convention 189 on Decent Work for Domestic Workers. Since then, 28 governments around the world have ratified the Convention and more have enacted legal reforms leading to positive changes for domestic workers in many places. “Governments must support a new convention to enable domestic workers a fair playing field to achieve rights, dignity and respect”, says Myrtle Witbooi, IDWF President.

Domestic workers experience a high degree of exposure to violence due to very asymmetrical power relations, isolation, undervaluation and low recognition of their occupation and insufficient effective legal protections. “They are invisible, their work is hardly valued, and poorly paid. This is because it is connected with the unpaid care work of the ‘mother in the household’. Domestic household work is rarely seen as ‘work’ just something that women, or too often children do in the homes of others as ‘help out’”, says Novelita V. Palisoc, IDWF Asian regional representative. Violence takes place in different forms in the domestic work including physical, psychological and sexual violence. “Gender based violence is a pervasive problem in our sector, 8 out of 10 domestic workers reported to have suffered from some types of violence in their work and this is why we are here to ensure we will a strong convention to stop gender based violence" says Carmen Britez, IDWF Vice President and Latin America regional representative.

We are grateful to Joel and Victoria Osteen, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, and the members of Lakewood Church who so overwhelming embraced our film”

— Christian Briggs, Executive Producer

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fresh on the heels of the Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives’ removal of the words “so help me God” from that institution’s swearing in oath, a new feature film which debates the excision of the words “one nation under God” from the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance was screened for an invited audience at Joel and Victoria Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston on June 7. The audience in the packed theatre responded with thunderous applause as the credits rolled, signaling their overwhelming approval of “One Nation Under God,” which is slated for a year-end wide release.

Lakewood Church, with a membership of more than 18,000, regularly holds Lakewood Movie Night, at which quality family films are screened. In selecting “One Nation Under God” for its most recent screening, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, Senior Advisor and one of the church’s ordained ministers, said, “Our founding fathers placed God at the center of our country, but today, it has become our greatest battle to keep Him there. #ONENATIONUNDERGOD shares the story of a Hispanic student from an immigrant family that boldly steps out to protect his first amendment right in his school and challenges the lead candidate for the Presidency of the United States to do the same. Together, they take a stand for what they believe.”

“We are grateful to Joel and Victoria Osteen, Jackelyn Viera Iloff, and the members of Lakewood Church who so overwhelming embraced our film.,” said Executive Producer Christian Briggs. “Their tremendous response tells us that this film is a rarity today – a family film about standing up for what is right that is also great entertainment. We are looking forward to bringing ‘One Nation Under God’ to audiences everywhere later this year.”

“One Nation Under God,” starring Kevin Sorbo, Antonio Sabato Jr., Casper Van Dien, Lois Robbins, Herschel Walker and Isaak Presley, has received 32 major awards at film festivals over the past year. Underscoring the film’s excellence and relevance among faith and family audiences, it has won top awards at the International Film Festival, God Country Family Film Festival, Christian Film Festival and many others.

Written and directed by Lisa Arnold, who co-produced the hugely successful 2014 “God’s Not Dead”, “One Nation Under God” dramatizes the ongoing debate surrounding the First Amendment, freedom of speech and censorship when a new student at a Louisiana magnet school questions a policy in which the words “under God” are omitted in daily recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

About “One Nation Under God”:
When a magnet school teacher in Louisiana (Sorbo) is confronted by a new student (Presley), a young Latino raised by a single mom, who questions the school’s policy toward his First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion, the subject becomes the basis of a debate in a juried showdown with a rival school. Casper Van Dien plays the school’s principal who staunchly defends the policy, and Antonio Sabato Jr. plays a senator who has his eye on the White House, yet whose public comments supporting a place for faith in education get him in political hot water. Football legend Herschel Walker plays himself as an alumnus of the school

“One Nation Under God” is a Suretone Pictures/Film Incito co-production. Nick Thurlow, Jordan Schur, Jarred Coates and Lisa Arnold are producers. Christian Briggs, Herschel Walker, David Mitchell and Keith Jensen are executive producers.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — AI algorithms operation and trust

Decision Point has unlimited potential in all verticals and sectors and can deliver information in a useful format on which to base decisions. In response to growing concerns around the operation and accountabilities of AI algorithms and the potential for legislation or certification of AI's Decision Point has decided to adopt an Operational Passport approach.  The AI Operational Passport is linked to the existing augmented intelligence platforms capacity to create regulatory point in time reporting. The functionality for the AI Operational Passport already exists as it is fundamental to defence and security to have traceability on decision making for oversight and legality of actions.  Additionally the adoption of this approach follows the recently launched United Kingdom report on Trust, Transparency and Technology: Building Data Policies for the Public Good, by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Data and Analytics.

Building assurance into AI algorithms

With the levels of complexity and constant market movement experienced by organisations, enterprises, divisions defining the right question can often be a huge and expensive process. Long before being able to decide the next move, having the capacity and time to understand all the data points, opinions and perspectives requires months or years to confidently direct transformation, customer relationship management, operational risk management. And for fast moving aspects of commerce, transactions need to rely more and more on automation.

Companies need proof and traceability to confidentially make decisions an AI operational passport with an algorithmic blackbox establishes the assurance needed in regulatory and compliance environments not only explain what was done but why. Karl Smith, Director of Decision Point

Instead of just providing an AI, Decision Point creates augmented intelligence solutions with its clients. These solutions bind technology (computational power) and human subject matter expertise insights together to enable leaders and automated systems to deliver confident, effective and influential decisions driving organisations, enterprises and divisions to new levels of success.

Decision Point algorithms

Decision Point creates algorithmic logic models based upon subjective logic for each query our clients have. Each query is built with the direct engagement of client side subject matter experts to provide subjective insights on the rules and priorities within the data supplied for the algorithmic logic models which are then productised as queries and tool sets for clients.

Algorithmic operational passports

Algorithmic Operational Passports consistent of two key components;

Controlled Vocabulary for defined meanings for regulatory and algorithmic refinement purposes.
Algorithmic Blackbox for point-in-time reporting and records for regulatory and quality audit, facilitating the investigation of activity and incidents.
