German Mourners Shout ‘Nazis Out!’ at Vigil — Acclaimed Documentary, Hate Among Us, Highlights Problem

Hate Among Us

Dean Cain, Executive Producer

Montel Williams, Executive Producer

Thousands Gathered for a Vigil in Hanau

The Guardian reported that the mourners were holding signs that read "Take racism personally" and "Never again!" and could be heard chanting "Nazis out!"

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — After a far-right gunman opened fire and killed nine people at two hookah bars, thousands of people gathered for vigils across Germany on Thursday, Feb 20th, night hours. Vigils took place in Hanau, where the deadly shooting took place, and large crowds had assembled in Frankfurt and Berlin. The Guardian reported that the mourners were holding signs that read "Take racism personally" and "Never again!" and could be heard chanting "Nazis out!"

The attacker has been identified as Tobias Rathjen, 43, who was found dead with his 72-year-old mother in his home after the gunshots. Federal Chief Prosecutor Peter Frank said that the nine people killed were between 21 and 44 and that they all came from a "migrant background”. Frank also said that evidence showed Rathjen had “a very deeply racist attitude.” Inge Bank, 82, who lives near the bar where one of the shootings took place, said: “I couldn’t be any more upset… We have to nip it in the bud if the Nazi Party is coming back.”

History ominously repeats itself in "Hate Among Us," a disturbingly relevant but noticeably selective assessment of the global resurgence of anti-Semitism co-hosted by executive producers of the documentary, Dean Cain and Montel Williams.

Cain and Williams survey the recent spike in hate crimes leveled against Jews around the world in “Hate Among Us”. The two also served in a similar behind-the-scenes capacity for “Architects of Denial,” chronicling Armenian genocide. They are joined by travel show personality Laura McKenzie (also an executive producer) on one of her “voluntourism” trips to Israel.

Along the way, director David McKenzie draws a chilling though-line from the ascendancy of Hitler in the 1930s to the current rise of emboldened Islamic terrorists, neo-Nazis and other far-right extremist factions who, unlike members of the Ku Klux Klan, do not feel they have to hide their hatred under hoods.

Back in America, the film briefly addresses incidents in Charlottesville, Va., as well as synagogue shootings in Pittsburgh and Poway, California, but while referring to social media as a frighteningly effective tool for recruiting hate groups, it continues to circumvent any conversation about how explosive tweets and retweets emanating from the White House could further fan those flames of hatred.

While the rise of anti-Semitic abuse and bigotry is justifiably disturbing, "Hate Among Us," which spends a lot of screen time covering attacks in Paris and Berlin, would have had more incisive viewing if its exploratory journey kicked off closer to home.

Denise Gibbs of Modesto: Human Resources and Administrative Expert

Denise Gibbs Modesto

MODESTO, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Denise Gibbs of Modesto uses her thirty years of social work experience to help underserved communities including senior citizens, domestic violence victims, and low-income families.

Focusing her social work experience on human resources and administration efforts, Denise Gibbs of Modesto has dedicated her life to helping the underprivileged. She specifically focuses on senior citizens, domestic violence victims, low-income families, and inmates incarcerated for non-violent crimes.

Because she has spent thirty years in the social work field, Denise Gibbs understands that resources should adjust to the needs of the population. She has developed personnel handbooks for various non-profit agencies to help them hone their policies and procedures. Putting the right policies and procedures in place streamlines operations and enables these agencies to best serve their target populations.

In her thirty years, Denise Gibbs of Modesto has overseen staff at non-profit organizations and used her human resources and administrative experience to resolve conflict and create solutions that help both staff and clients meet their needs.

Denise Gibbs is dedicated to the social work field because she believes that it is crucial to United States society. She encourages others to become involved in social work because, in her experience, there are not yet enough social workers to meet the growing needs of the public.

Denise Gibbs of Modesto has viewed firsthand the negative effects of poverty on society resulting in homelessness, unemployment, declining health, and inability to access resources. Many people who are impoverished suffer from mental illness, making it even more difficult for them to seek the help that they need. Based on Census Bureau* records from 2017, twelve percent of Americans are living in poverty. This is why she has developed and suggested her own housing development strategy. Denise Gibbs understands that social workers are educated in dealing with poverty and mental illness.

Mental illness strikes regardless of economic status presenting in the form of mood disorders, substance abuse, and psychosis. Social workers are trained to identify and provide resources for those with mental illness and are in a position to propose policies that will best help those who are suffering.

Social work is necessary to help those who are victims of child neglect and abuse and victims of domestic violence. Denise Gibbs of Modesto has worked with non-profit agencies to identify these victims and serve her community in a way that provides them with assistance and safe places away from their perpetrators.

Denise Gibbs has also spent her career helping those who have been incarcerated for non-violent crimes find employment upon release. She understands that reintegrating can have a positive impact on the economy and remove the negative stigma. She was involved in developing AB 109* in the state of California, public safety legislation that allowed non-violent offenders to be supervised at the county level and enroll in an eighteen-month skills training program. This program includes vocational training and post-secondary education. This motivates these individuals to maintain their employment and has a positive impact on employers.

Denise Gibbs of Modesto intends to continue contributing to the social work field and collaborating with non-profit organizations to serve the underserved communities and provide those in need with valuable, necessary resources.

New 12-book “Why Are They Like That?” Series by Y Forum founder recaps 20 years of taboo cross-cultural questions

Phillip Milano has released a new 12-book series based on his groundbreaking cross cultural web project

Dare To Aks is a pioneering 20-year effort to promote provocative cross-cultural dialogue

The “Why Are They Like That?” book series aims to breathe new life
into diversity courses with edgy discussions from a pioneering global project.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — A newly released 12-book series based on the 20-year ground-breaking “Y” cross-cultural Q&A project is designed to breathe new life into diversity training and courses.

The “Why Are They Like That?” series finally brings together the most profound, heart-warming and hilarious conversations from the past two decades of author Phillip J. Milano’s take-no-prisoners project, with real people, celebrities and experts addressing unfiltered questions related to race, religion, sexual orientation, gender, disability and more. It’s meant to uplift all audiences, and be assigned reading in college diversity courses to enhance students’ readiness for the polarized world that awaits them.

The timing is designed to address a new era in which bigotry and its evil twin political correctness are rising to new heights in the U.S., Milano said.
”We are seeing racism and hatred reach an almost cataclysmic level in our society,” said Milano, founder of YForum.com (now DareToAks.com) and author of the 12-book Why Are They Like That? series. “Yet the unflinching give-and-take we so desperately need to explode fears and ignorance is being suffocated by censorship and hypersensitivity. We need fewer trigger warnings and more myth-busting.”
Taboo questions are unflinchingly addressed such as: Do white girls want sex more often? Do gay guys get off looking at their own bodies? Are Muslims OK with killing infidels? Do amputees get asked out on dates? Why do black comics joke about childhood beatings?

Milano is a 30-year journalist and media professional who breached the boundaries of a sheltered white suburban upbringing to create Y?, which has generated 10 million visits and more than 50,000 postings worldwide since its creation in 1998.
He has been a breakout on BET, CBS, CNN, the BBC and FOX News with his bold dialogue project, and featured in The New York Times, USA Today, Entertainment Weekly, The Atlantic Monthly, Washington Post and many more outlets. He is the author of the Perigee book I Can't Believe You Asked That! and writer of the pioneering newspaper column/blog "Dare to Ask."

At a critical juncture when falsehoods and lies are trumping facts and ideas, Milano said his stirring call to action is simple: Love and respect others by courageously learning everything about them.

Milano’s project is at DareToAks.com. He can be reached for interviews at yforum@yforum.com, facebook.com/DareToAks and on Twitter at @PhillipMilano. The Why Are They Like That? series is available on Amazon.com. Books can be purchased individually or as part of a collection by visiting Amazon.

Praise for Phillip Milano, his cross-cultural sharing project and books:
“Quietly revolutionizing cross-cultural communication…” — Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Leonard Pitts

“Tells more about who we are than you're likely to learn from a dozen sociology texts…” — Washington Post News Service

“Mr. Milano has dared to open the field of debate to the maximum…” — Le Monde, Paris

“Even the most potentially insulting questions can be peacefully discussed…” – College Press Network

“(A) remarkable contribution to cross-cultural understanding…” — The (London) Guardian

“Both hilarious and serious…” — FOX News

“A very bizarre book …” – Comedian/Podcaster Marc Maron

“Whoa! Now for some gut-level dialogue on race…” — The Philadelphia Inquirer

Cinequest and Kaiser Permanente Present Thrive Award to Shannon Harvey about her Journey of Healing through Meditation

Cinequest will be from March 3 to March 15, 2020

Shannon Harvey had her dream job as a radio journalist at age 24 when she was diagnosed with a devastating auto-immune disease.

My Year of Living Mindfully chronicles Shannon Harvey determination to find a treatment using the cutting-edge techniques of mind-body medicine.

Is it really possible to ease suffering and promote physical and mental healing using the simple practice of meditation that can be done by anyone at any time or anywhere?”

— Shannon Harvey

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every year the Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival, in conjunction with Kaiser Permanente, honors one film for its life-affirming themes and resonance with the Kaiser Permanente Thrive Award. This year the award is being bestowed on My Year of Living Mindfully.

Shannon Harvey had her dream job as a radio journalist at age 24 when she was diagnosed with a devastating auto-immune disease. Her immune system had become hyperactive and was attacking normal, healthy tissues. Her muscles and joints were inflamed and she was told if her disease continued to progress she could end up with organ failure, or wheelchair bound.

My Year of Living Mindfully chronicles her determination to find an effective treatment using the cutting-edge techniques of mind-body medicine. Cinequest will be its North American premiere.

Shannon wondered: is it really possible to ease suffering and promote physical and mental healing using the simple practice of meditation that can be done by anyone at any time or anywhere? The film follows Shannon’s worldwide journey from her home in Australia to Manhattan to the dusty refugee camps of the Middle East and then back Down Under where she learns from an Aboriginal elder about the ancient practice of Dadirri — deep listening and silent awareness.

She undertakes a year-long experiment with herself as the subject that synthesizes the works of leading scientists with the ways of mystics. Her goal is to learn if meditation can dramatically improve her health and well-being, or is it just another over-hyped self-help fad? My Year of Living Mindfully is sure to inspire countless individuals to not only find their own inner strength and peace but also see the world in new ways. It is a must-see for those seeking insight and questioning their place in the world.

Previous winners of the Kaiser Permanente Thrive Award have included such stirring films as Clownvets (2019), the inspiring story of legendary Dr. Patch Adams and his team’s trip to Guatemala on a mission of “humanitarian clowning” to help veterans suffering from PTSD; Pick of the Litter (2018), which follows the lives of a litter of Labrador Retriever puppies from birth through their training to be guide dogs for the blind; and The Bullish Farmer (2017), the story of a Wall Street investment banker who turned his back on high finance and transformed his life by becoming an organic farmer.

My Year of Living Mindfully director, producer and star Shannon Harvey is available for interviews and will receive the award at the Hammer Theatre in Downtown San Jose on March 5 at 7 p.m. after the North American Premiere screening of her film.

FULTON MEDICAL CENTER DEPLOYS DANOLYTE GLOBAL’S INNOVATIVE DISINFECTANT SYSTEM TO PROTECT PATIENTS AND STAFF

Noble Health Corp - Healthcare Rural

Noble Health Corp

Danolyte Global’s Human and Environmentally Safe
Disinfectant System is 100-Times More Powerful Than Bleach

LEAWOOD, KS, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fulton Medical Center announced today that it has installed Danolyte Global’s innovative disinfectant system that will greatly reduce infection risks from most known bacteria, viruses, mold, and fungus. The system, produced by Lenexa, Kansas-based Danolyte Global, is EPA registered to kill even the most resistant microbes including staphylococcus, C. diff, MRSA, listeria, legionella, and the influenza virus. FMC is the first Midwest hospital to deploy the system. It is anticipated that the Danolyte disinfectant will also kill the novel coronavirus now sweeping Asia and the world.

Danolyte Global’s system produces a non-toxic, noncorrosive, EPA-approved solution that can be applied directly to both hard and soft surfaces and applied throughout a room or area using a form of electrostatic spraying. This form of spraying allows the disinfectant solution to attach evenly to all surfaces, even hidden surfaces under tables, beds, seat-cushions, curtains, and equipment. “Our solution is completely safe for humans and animals,” said Jody Julian, Co-Founder, and President of Danolyte Global LLC. “Yet, unlike bleach, which is both poisonous to humans and corrosive to most surfaces, it’s 100 times more effective at killing germs,” he said.

Don Peterson, Executive Vice President of Strategy and Innovation at Noble Health Corp said, “Noble Health is mandating that every effort be made to defend its patients and staff from the novel coronavirus and that we implement new innovative solutions to radically decrease the risk of hospital-acquired infections,” he stated. Noble Health Corp said that it is covering the approximately $35,000.00 cost of the system. “The Danolyte generator installed in Fulton will produce enough disinfectant solutions to cover several hospitals, physician offices, and nursing facilities. We hope other healthcare facilities in the area will be open to using the disinfectant and eventually in sharing the cost,” Peterson said.

Terry Nichols, President of Noble Health Management, manager of Fulton Medical Center, said the Danolyte system is a central part of a larger strategy to improve health outcomes. “Defending against the coronavirus brought this matter to a head as has the increasing number of flu cases we’ve been seeing. While deploying the Danolyte system improves our defenses it will also serve to reduce the risk of sepsis and other HAI’s (hospital-acquired infections) where existing solutions have not. Our goal is to improve health outcomes for all of our patients,” he explained.

About Danolyte© Global
Danolyte Global designs manufactures and markets generators of biocidal solutions that are EPA registered to kill any pathogen it encounters. The solution is safe for humans and animals, non-toxic, and noncorrosive to the environment. Danolyte's generators are deployed to industries where large-scale disinfecting is required, such as hospitals, food service, and the hospitality industry. Danolyte’s Organic certified crop solution Agrowlyte© destroys bacteria like listeria, powdery mold, and other contaminants on plants, fruits, and vegetables. Danolyte Global is located in Overland Park, Kansas and is dedicated to human and environmentally safe disinfecting solutions.

Illinois moving to Sanchez Decision: Life Care Planning Tenants in Peril

The decision in People v Sanchez is being felt “big time” in California civil litigation because testimony cannot rely on types of data collection as evidence.

Illinois is taking the next step toward Sanchez as it is placing life care planner’s testimony based on databases in peril…”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The decision in People v Sanchez, the California Supreme Court limits an expert’s ability to rely on hearsay to provide case-specific facts for which a witness has no personal knowledge, as there is no exception to the hearsay exception rule. Although Sanchez was a criminal case, the effect is being felt “big time” in California civil litigation because testimony from life care planners cannot rely on the tenants of life care planning that provides for a systematic means of data collection to be offered as evidence regarding the cost of goods and services for future care, as that evidence is now considered hearsay. The result of Sanchez is that testimony that relies on evidence from pricing databases and calls to vendors for the cost of medical goods and services is being struck by Defendant and Plaintiff attorneys in California as hearsay.

In Verci v. High, et al, an Illinois case, a ruling from the Court of Appeals rejected a life care planner’s testimony that was based on data obtained from the FAIR Health database because the Court found that it is derived from “an unknown number of insurance companies and is used to set reimbursement rates, not to determine the reasonableness of medical charges.”

Dr. Greg Vigna, MD, JD, practicing physician in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Certified Life Care Planner, and national pharmaceutical injury attorney, explains that “Illinois is taking the next step toward Sanchez as it is placing life care planner’s testimony based on databases in peril as this data is essentially hearsay and the reliability of a databases widely used by life care planners cannot be relied upon as these databases are hearsay. Although the decision appears to bless the practice of life care planners to obtain costing data obtained from calls to vendors of medical goods and services in the community where the injured person resides, that practice too is hearsay without an exception if challenged."

California Evidence Code requires that an expert base their opinion on their ‘knowledge, skill, experience, education, and training.’ In addition, California Evidence Code allow an expert to ‘state on direct examination the reasons for his opinion, unless precluded by law from using such reasons.’

Dr. Greg Vigna is the owner of Academic Physician Life Care Planning, LLC and is a practicing physician. He provides testimony of cost of goods and services based on his independent skill, knowledge, experience, and training using the traditional tenants of life care planning as it relates to data collection as confirmatory. Dr. Vigna adds, “Sanchez is a huge problem for Defense and Plaintiff Attorneys. Dr. Vigna has reduced this burden in time and expense to zero.”

Transvaginal Mesh Ruling Improves Path to Justice

The Honorable Lee Yeakel has ruled that a safer alternative procedure and a proposed safer alternative design are each acceptable for the claim to proceed.

The scientific literature has caught up to the lies and the fraudulent conduct of Bard, American Medical Systems, Ethicon, Coloplast, and Boston Scientific. The defense experts are being discredited.”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many jurisdictions across the United States require evidence of a safer alternative design for a medical device known at the time of use for a successful claim in a product liability lawsuit against a manufacturer. In these jurisdictions there may be a Motion for Summary Judgment filed by the manufacturer to have the product liability claim dismissed. Courts have been split whether evidence of a “safer alternative procedure” or untested “safer alternative design” would be accepted by the Court to overcome the Motion for Summary Judgment, thereby allowing a case to go forward.

In Case 1:19-cv-01240-LY-SH the Honorable Lee Yeakel, Austin, Texas, has ruled on this specific issue and ruled that a safer alternative procedure and an untested proposed safer alternative design are each acceptable in allowing the design defect product claim to proceed forward.

In the Austin, Texas case, involving a woman with pudendal neuralgia caused by a Bard Align transobturator sling, Bard argued that there was no evidence offered by the Plaintiff that a safer alternative design existed at the time of implantation that would have prevented or significantly reduced the risk of injury.

Dr. Rosenzweig, an expert for the Plaintiff, testified that there were four safer alternative designs including the following: 1) Burch Procedures, 2) Autologous fascia slings, 3) biological slings, and 4) A sling with less polypropylene such as Ultrapro. Bard argued that Dr. Rosenzweig’s evidence was not sufficient as it offered alternative procedures (not designs) and that Dr. Rosenzweig’s proposed designs have not been demonstrated to be “safer.” Judge Yeakel ruled otherwise.

Greg Vigna, MD, JD, practicing physician, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, and Certified Life Care Planner states, “The scientific literature has caught up to the lies and the fraudulent conduct of Bard, American Medical Systems, Ethicon, Coloplast, and Boston Scientific. The defense experts are being discredited. Catastrophically injured women with pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, through my law firm, have a clearer path to the courthouse after this decision as cases involving newly injured women are being filed directly in Courts across the country—while others are finally being remanded out of the MDL after failing to achieve settlements with defendant manufacturers. In addition, we represent women who have had their MDL claims dismissed without prejudice. We are refiling their cases all across the country.” Dr. Vigna adds, “This safer, alternative design issue is welcoming news."

Greg Vigna, MD, JD, operates a California and Washington DC law firm and has teamed up with Martin Baughman, a national pharmaceutical injury trial law firm from Dallas, Texas, and together they represent women with catastrophic pain syndromes that are proceeding down the path to justice.

VictimsFight.Com, a Non-Profit, to Seek Justice for Millions of Helpless Victims of Sexual Harassment & Discrimination,

Fighting Sexual Harassment and Illegal Discrimination Across America

Americans United for Equal Justice, a non-profit, to bring equal justice to all, including millions of low income victims of sexual harassment & discrimination

If an institution such as Columbia is able to pay-off a $650,000 bribe to unethical attorneys to avoid a $200 Million Dollars Class Action, anybody in America could be a helpless victim tomorrow.”

— Randy S. Raghavendra

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Americans United for Equal Justice – a non-profit dedicated to bringing equal justice to all, including millions of low income victims of sexual harassment, illegal discrimination, consumer fraud, and other illegal conduct across America – has just launched its VictimsFight.Com website. A mobile app will also be released soon for downloading on any mobile device.

VictimsFight.Com is designed to revolutionize the current system of victims’ complaint handling and for most efficient organization of victims nationwide to seek justice against any abusive, powerful, and wealthy corporations without the need to hire any expensive attorneys. By promoting fair and relatively quick handling of victims’ complaints, VictimsFight.Com expects to disrupt the current justice system that appears to be trapped in a vicious cycle of unethical and inherently corrupt practices where an average victim with even substantial claims but modest means may never get any justice.

Americans United for Equal Justice was founded by a former Senior Management Analyst of the prestigious Columbia University, Randy S. Raghavendra, after having litigated a multi-million dollar race discrimination and retaliation case against Columbia itself during the past fifteen years. AUEJ has also simultaneously launched its ColumbiaVictims.Com website to assist the victims of racial discrimination and or sexual harassment at Columbia. Recently, criminal charges were brought against a Columbia University doctor for sexually assaulting over 17 women, including the wife of Presidential hopeful, Andrew Yang. The website also lists the cases against several Columbia professors who have either been sued or have resigned after having demanded sexual favors from their female students at the New York based Ivy League.

The 59-years old Founder said “if VictimsFight.Com existed some fifteen years ago, there would not be the Bill Cosby or Harvey Weinstein or the Jeffrey Epstein sexual assault scandals now because their victims would have been able to confidentially register their complaints and VictimsFight.Com would have come to their rescue by immediately organizing against each of their high-powered, celebrity aggressors.”

Raghavendra said that VictimsFight.Com is the first civil rights organization
that intends to fight individual discrimination and sexual harassment by raising funds primarily through donations and partnering with ethical attorneys across the United States for seeking meaningful relief for millions of voiceless victims in an organized fashion not only through individual and class action litigation but also seeking criminal prosecution and organizing for change of laws for protecting the rights of even the lowest income victims of illegal discrimination and sexual harassment. To protect their personal identify and prevent any retaliation, VictimsFight.Com would allow the confidential registration of complaints by simply using an anonymous email address without even revealing the victim’s name or other personal information.

VictimsFight.Com is on a mission to also become the largest civil rights organization in America and provide ethical attorney representation to all victims whose rights were substantially violated, regardless of how poor they may be. At the present time, there are no other civil rights organizations, including the ACLU or the NAACP, that provide any individual attorney representation in the David vs. Goliath cases of any of the low-income and helpless victims. As a result, the existing civil rights laws are not taken seriously by most large corporations and wealthy individuals. Instead of providing any real equal opportunity, many large corporations view the civil rights laws merely as a nuisance or a small hurdle that needs to be overcome for continuing their discriminatory practices with impunity and by taking advantage to the maximum the lack of any ethical attorney representation for the overwhelming majority of victims of discrimination and sexual harassment.

The dark-skinned, Indian-American Founder said his own 15-years litigation is an excellent example of the plight of millions of low income discrimination victims today. His civil rights organization intends to provide ethical attorney representation in as many cases as possible. He said “If a prestigious institution such as Columbia is able to pay-off a $650,000 bribe to some unethical attorneys to avoid a $200 Million Dollars Class Action and deprive the basic constitutional rights of even a highly accomplished executive with two master’s degrees and twenty five years of professional accomplishments such as me, almost anybody in America could be a helpless victim tomorrow.”

Research points to fear of retaliation and legal hurdles as reasons that workers often don’t come forward with harassment claims, particularly in the low-wage workforce. Many employees, especially at small or male-dominated companies, don’t believe their complaints will be taken seriously internally. But reporting to external authorities can carry its own risks: Employers are notified of complaints filed with the EEOC and similar agencies, and although retaliation is illegal, there have been numerous cases of companies firing workers or altering their work schedules after they file complaints with management or a government agency.

Raghavendra pointed that the current justice system is designed to render justice only for the large and powerful corporations and a few already wealthy and or high-profile victims who can afford to pay tens of thousands of dollars in attorney fees. The average victim cannot seek justice in the current system as he or she simply cannot afford to retain a $500/hour attorney or a powerful law firm for obtaining any justice. He added that even the few attorneys and law firms that may represent a victim on a contingency fee basis are easily corruptible by the large and wealthy corporations as they can easily buy-off the loyalty of any such plaintiffs’ attorneys by making some kind of a deal where the plaintiffs’ attorneys are paid off to betray and or sell-out their clients.

VictimsFight.Com intends to maintain one large national database of all complaints for most efficient organizing of all victims of any powerful individuals, all victims within individual corporations, all victims within individual towns, and all victims within individual counties against any kind of injustice and for fighting any kind of illegal discrimination, harassment, and corruption at all levels on a continuing basis anywhere
in America.

ACTRESS HONG CHAU WILL BE CELEBRATED AT CINEQUEST WITH THE MAVERICK SPIRIT AWARD

Cinequest will be from March 3 to March 15, 2020

Actress Hong Chau

The path to stardom is unique, but actress Hong Chau's path featured stops in Thailand, New Orleans, Boston, and a decade of stops and starts in Hollywood.

In Hollywood, there’s not a lot of roles for Asian people. So a lot of it is waiting and waiting and waiting.”

— Hong Chau, recipient of Cinequest's 2020 Maverick Spirit Award

SAN JOSE, CA, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every path to stardom is unique, but for actress Hong Chau it was especially long, featuring stops in Thailand, New Orleans and Boston, as well as a decade of stops and starts in Hollywood. Then in 2017 she received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in the film Downsizing (co-starring Matt Damon) and her career took off, including a featured role in last year’s acclaimed HBO miniseries Watchmen.

Chau is receiving the Maverick Spirit Award at this year’s Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival (Cinequest) along with a screening of her brilliant new movie Destiny. (co-starring Brian Dennehy). The award recognizes those who stand apart from the crowd, willing to create and innovate from a place of personal yet global vision. The Maverick leads, takes risks, tries the difficult, if not impossible, and delivers original work and an original life. This spirit sums up the best of the worlds of cinema and Silicon Valley. Previous recipients have included Nicolas Cage, Elle Fanning, J.J. Abrams, Neil Gaiman, and Harrison Ford

She was born in a refugee camp in Thailand. Her parents were Vietnamese “boat people” who fled the Communist regime in 1979. Her family later immigrated to New Orleans after a Vietnamese Catholic Church there found a sponsor for them. Once in the U.S., her parents were similar to many immigrants in that they found work in the low-wage service industry. They currently run a convenience store in Louisiana.

Chau’s parents were determined to see her and her brothers graduate from college. For Chau, that was at Boston University. She initially studied creative writing but switched to film studies at her parents’ urging because it was more practical. She had intended to work in documentary film but decided to give acting a try after classmates praised her work in their student films.

In 2010, she landed a role in David Simon’s critically acclaimed but little seen HBO series Treme. What followed were several years of guest starring spots on everything from How I Met Your Mother to NCIS, as well as the 2014 film Inherent Vice from director Paul Thomas Anderson. However, in 2017 she broke out with the role as Ngoc Lan Tran in Downsizing and a featured role in the cultural smash Big Little Lies on HBO.

Chau will receive her Maverick Spirit Award and engage in a conversation about her career on March 7 at the California Theatre in Downtown San Jose following a screening of her new film Driveways.

Driveways tells the story of the friendship between eight-year-old Cody and 80-year-old Korean War veteran Del, played by Golden Globe and Tony Award-winner Brian Dennehy. Earlier this year, Chau was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for her role as Cody’s mother Kathy.

She will be seen this summer as a fairy who can rejuvenate at will in the Disney film Artemis Fowl, directed by five-time Academy Award nominee Sir Kenneth Branagh.

Despite her recent success, Chau is well aware that diversity on screen continues to lag far behind the reality of U.S. demographics.

“In Hollywood, there’s not a lot of roles for Asian people. So a lot of it is waiting and waiting and waiting,” said Chau.

Silicon Valley will not have to wait long for Chau’s appearance. It will be in the city with the largest Vietnamese population in the U.S., San Jose, at the 30th Cinequest Film & Creativity Festival on March 7th.
