BVGiWear and Betty Ford Center to Support Veterans With Addictions and Mental Illness

BVGiWear (BG Valor, Inc.) and Betty Ford Center initiate efforts to donate 50% of profits for veterans in need of mental health and addiction recovery.

RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2018 / — Riverside, California, September 24, 2018 – In support of United States Veterans and the “hero’s journey,” The BG Veterans of Valor Foundation (powered by BVGiWear) is honored to announce initiated efforts in fulfilling its charter to help veterans in need of mental health and addiction recovery.

We are negotiating with a prominent medical school to sponsor a new Addiction Medicine Department (AMD) whose purpose will be to train medical personnel in the evaluation and treatment of those with mental health and addiction problems, with a special emphasis on veterans who suffer from these diseases. When we get the approved narrative, we will update our site accordingly.

Joseph Skrajewski, M.A., MFTI, Executive Director, Medical & Professional Education at the Betty Ford Center, and part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, has agreed to work towards collaborating with the University of California, Riverside School of Medicine to establish training modules for the advanced education of medical personnel.

Enterprise Scam: Howe Passes Baton to United States Congressional and Law Enforcement Apparatus, as well as Major Media

SubscriberWise founder and America's child identity guardian David Howe, holding two public records each containing sworn testimony which has been provided to USA Congress, law enforcement, and media confirming profound consumer UDAAPs.

SubscriberWise founder and America’s child identity guardian David Howe, holding two public records each containing sworn testimony which has been provided to USA Congress, law enforcement, and media confirming profound consumer UDAAPs.

'Damage' according to sworn testimony of EHI manager; directly and profoundly contradicted by company publicly touted protocols (FTC and CFPB alerted)

‘Damage’ according to sworn testimony of EHI manager; directly and profoundly contradicted by company publicly touted protocols (FTC and CFPB alerted)

Enterprise Holdings car rental UDAAPs no longer mere allegations but now hard facts on the permanent public record and forever under the bright light of day

Yes, we now and finally no longer have mere allegations of predatory behavior including even criminal intent and corruption. Instead, we have two powerful and unimpeachable public records…”

— David Howe, SubscriberWise founder and America's child ID guardian

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 23, 2018 / — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for communications and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced the exchange of what he contends is the most comprehensive proof of state and federal car-rental UDAAPs (Unfair, Deceptive, Abusive Acts or Practices) to the United States of America federal and state law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Florida Attorney General, Pam Bondi’s Office including Consumer Protection Director Victoria Butler.

Related: After years of consumer complaints, state accuses rental car firm of deceptive practices —

In addition, the mountain of evidence, along with two public records each containing sworn testimony with incredibly contradictory statements and questionable courtroom exhibits, have been provided to staff members of the Honorable United States Senator Sherrod Brown, including colleagues from Honorable Senator Brown’s Office who work for the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Other United States Senators’ staff members, including the Honorable Elizabeth Warren, the Honorable Bill Nelson, and the Honorable Charles Schumer, have been alerted to what Howe insists are the relentless abuses perpetrated against United States Citizens, as well as our sisters and brothers who visit our beloved and law-loving nation from around the world.

“MISSION ACCOMPLISHED,” proclaimed David Howe, SubscriberWise founder, FICO Professor, and Identity Guardian for babies, for girls, and for boys. “Yes, we now and finally no longer have mere allegations of predatory behavior including even criminal intent and corruption. Instead, we have two powerful and unimpeachable public records, each containing sworn testimony — including from the same witness involved in the scheme — that I firmly argue reveal in the most remarkable terms a sophisticated cover-up that evolved into a grand-story with patently false testimony and exhibits.

SEE: (‘Damage Evaluator’ and notice the photo with the clear disclaimer regarding ‘Bumper Scrapes’; compare to sworn manager testimony taken under-oath during photographic-exhibit cross-examination that proves consumer financial harm)

“And it’s all now on the public record under the bright light of day – so obviously and so undeniably contrary to the industry marketing and proclamations that otherwise deceive the public into reducing caution (i.e. taking photographs of pre-existing vehicle condition including nearly invisible 'wear and tear' that is later used to implicate as part of the scam) when renting a vehicle and driving off the lot. It’s a wholly unfair and abusive system that ensures self-implication when innocent consumers mistakenly rely – through marketing and advertising that work precisely as intended – on the expectation of the ‘good faith and fair dealing covenant’; a standard and best-practice only ethical and honest companies engage and strive for with zeal.

“It’s true,” Howe confirmed. “The publicly trumpeted ‘damage’ protocols are now proved disgraced in the most obvious manner one could imagine. And remarkably, that's only part of the story with this particularly predatory scheme that will continue to get more and more scrutiny as lawmakers and others pour over the two public records including audio and video documentation of the abusive and illicit encounter. In fact, only a read of the court testimony can fully reveal the incredible violations of FTC and CFPB rules and regulations, as well as a myriad of state and federal consumer violations that would make even an infant’s head spin because of the abuse and injustice so shamefully evident on the permanent public records.

“So today, as I officially and finally pass the baton and move on from this incredibly frustrating and painful life-event, I want to express the most sincere gratitude a human being can muster for all those who have aided and assisted me in bringing this harmful behavior to light,” continued Howe. “And, of course, it’s not possible for me to adequately thank each and every person. It’s not possible for me to thank each and every agency who came to side with truth and justice. For me, each is an ‘army of allies’ and I remain profoundly grateful.

“But, in particular, there is one agency and one individual that indeed do deserve extraordinary thanks and recognition,” Howe insisted. “There is one agency that I must single-out for a loud and clear recognition that otherwise allowed a temporarily fallen-victim to get back on his feet and raise his head high and proud for the world to know and see.

“That agency is the Lee County Port Authority Police Department at the SW FL Fort Myers International Airport. And that individual is a dedicated and professional law-enforcement officer who delivered the most significant contribution to truth and justice in terms of exposing the facts and details associated with this financial rental scandal relentlessly exacted against the public ‘en masse’.

“Yes, it’s simply a fact that without the incredibly comprehensive and thorough independent investigation report, including sworn witness statements from the same individual who I feel eagerly and brazenly neglected the facts in sworn testimony in a United States of America Court of Law and in the presence of the Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr. in Lee County, Florida, there could be no possibility of exposing this extreme bad act and cover-up.

“I have no doubt that without the officer’s demonstrated due-diligence and unwavering commitment to the details and the facts from other actors involved — who also directly and indirectly contradicted the fantasy and fiction so desperately concocted under-oath in Judge Hayward’s courtroom — there could be no possibility of exposing this extreme bad act and cover-up,” added Howe.

“And, let the record reflect now and forever, the same must be stated regarding the extraordinary investigative facts so powerfully exposed by the high-definition photos that the officer thoughtfully included in his remarkable work of art that so profoundly and so unequivocally impeached the scheme that was presented under-oath nearly two years later in the Lee County Justice Center in the 20th Judicial Circuit, Honorable Archie B. Hayward Jr.

SEE: (court testimony proves manager conveniently failed to safeguard video that was used to implicate – even after recorded audio proving video was viewed. Both police and victim made repeated demands to view video to no avail. Manager testified to court having no awareness of otherwise common-sense duty to preserve evidence.)

“Yes, let the record again reflect the baton is passed,” Howe affirmed. “Law enforcement, Congress, major media, and – most importantly, the USA public and our neighbors from around the world, can now and forever know the truth. The sad, harmful, and frightening truth about the very real financial harms that await the renting public because of an industry operating in the disgraceful and conspicuous absence of uniform and predictable standards.

“As for whom I consider the criminal predators, for them no amount of justification, no amount of marketing, no amount of spin, no amount of human effort will ever hide or conceal the unethical and harmful deeds they level with zeal, shame, and disgust against honest and innocent renters past, present and future,” Howe concluded.

The Journey Fashion Festival puts on a spectacular show closing out NYFW with a night to remember filled with arial artists, dancers, models and even a Pharaoh.

NEW YORK , NY, USA, September 22, 2018 / — NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, September 17, 2018 / — The Journey Fashion Festival put on a spectacular show going beyond the usual constraint of New York Fashion Week with an experience that had the audience as well as photographers on the risers visibly excited. The show played with every emotion, from suspense to tears, to excitement and laughter. This was a fashion show like no other. The show took place at Peter Norton Symphony Space, in the renowned Peter Jay Sharp Theatre on Broadway, seating over 700 guests, featuring aerial artists, international designers, models, performers, Alvin Ailey Dancers, sponsors, and global brands from countries worldwide, promoting the message that “inclusion” is the way forward.

"In a world of unrest and uncertainty, the need to stand together and create a world of inclusion and diversity has never been more prevalent. The Journey Fashion Festival’s mission is to make brands from around the world accessible to all, being inclusive, creating opportunities outside of the normal fashion realm, and produce entertaining shows with a large appeal. Using my proprietary show format and a cooperative vibe, brands show their individual collections while being part of a larger vision interacting on a global level that transcends Fashion Week," says Malena Belafonte, the founder and creative director of The Journey Fashion Festival. "The show concept is something I came up with years ago, and only launched once I felt the fashion industry was ready to embrace it. Multiple designers show their newest collections in a collaborative yet individual format while incorporating some of the most sought after dancers, singers, performers, and cirque artists in an entertaining and creatively curated performance geared for both the runway and the stage. I wanted to showcase all sorts of fashion including children's fashion which Maryam Al-Bouanin represented with such a fantastic collection. Where else can a designer of exclusive and fabulous sunglasses like YEROC by Corey Woods incorporate a drawbridge, the pyramids, 80 models in chains only to upstage them all by entering as a pharaoh and twirl the entire length of our 80 foot runway," says Malena Belafonte.

Designers YEROC by Corey Woods, Henry Picado Men, Este & Chlo, Egami Collection, Minan Wong, Maryam Al-Bouanin, Helen Sanchez, Layer 8, GatitoSucio and others showed their newest collections. Cirque artist Kris Olness created a suspenseful opening, National Dance Institute featured a pas de deux by Sarafina Belafonte and Jonathan Rosario choreographed by Christopher D'amboise, Alvin Ailey dancer Hannah Richardson put on an amazing performance, and Malena Belafonte wooed the audience with a sexy opening act while focus was put on the importance of getting checked for breast cancer through the brand Got Checked. Hair and Make up was created by Marcello Costa. Designers, brands, and sponsors came from countries around the world such as Qatar, Brazil, Costa Rica, Italy, Norway, China, Denmark, Colombia, Botswana, Liberia, UK, USA, and Barbados to name a few.

Guests included press, photographers, VIPs, editors, buyers, influencers, and other fashion insiders. VIPs were treated to make-up and hair by Marcello Costa, cupcakes by Yolanda's Sweets, cocktails by Bar Talia, gifts by Madame Paulette and others, while roaming around the brand lounges. Sponsors included The Alex Salem Team, Douglas Elliman, Wells Fargo, Mercedes Club, Sennheiser, CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center, Marcello Costa, and more.

Silent Breach Announces New Continuous Shield Protect Solution for Retailers

Omnichannel continuous protection

Continuous monitoring and breach response tailored for the Retail industry.

Innovation retailers deliver to reach customers – omnichannel approaches, social media, efficiency efforts – presents great opportunities, but also dramatically increases their attack surface.”

— Marc Castejon – CEO Silent Breach

ST. PETERSBURG, FL, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2018 / — Silent Breach (, a leader in cyber security "red team" penetration testing, vulnerability assessment, continuous monitoring and incident response, has announced the release its new Continuous Shield Protect solution for Retail.

"The past year has witnessed an array of successful cyber-attacks against some of the most prominent retail institutions in the world. These breaches, which affected approximately 353 million customers collectively, were spectacular not only because of their size, but also because of the relentless pace at which they seemed to occur," says Samuel James, Retail sales manager for North America. "The threats are obviously becoming more sophisticated. Because of the innovation retailers deliver to reach customers – omnichannel approaches, social media, efficiency efforts – the way we work is very different than other industries, and the way we worked a decade ago. While that presents great opportunities, it also raises the stakes of the game."

Marc Castejon, Silent Breach CEO adds: "Compliance is very different from risk management, there is a growing awareness that compliance is the bare minimum for combating cyber threats, and that retailers need a more proactive approach, geared toward the industry’s changing risk posture. Breach response readiness is also top of mind as retailer’s scramble to detect threats, they are well aware that it’s not a matter of ‘if’ but ‘when’ they will run into a security incident."

Silent Breach brings experience and expertise in more than 10 different industries, with offices in more than 15 countries, and teams spread out in all 24 time zones, allowing for around the clock continuous pro-active monitoring and 24/7/365 incident response.

Silent Breach ( is the premier provider of cyber security for the fortune 500 companies, in the Data Center, Enterprise, SME, Retail, Government, Finance, Education, Automotive, Hospitality, Healthcare and Internet of Things (IoT) industries.

Andrew Cratsenberg sells substantial Federal Way property to fund new investments

Andrew Cratsenberg Jr Federal Way

In the city's largest retail transaction in over a decade, Andrew Cratsenberg Jr has agreed on a deal to sell Federal Way's prominent Center Plaza.

FEDERAL WAY, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2018 / — In a deal arranged by Andrew Cratsenberg Jr and Cratsenberg Properties, LLC, and brokered by Capital Pacific, the sale also includes a nearby Red Lobster, Starbucks, and a currently vacant parcel of land which Cratsenberg suggests is primed for redevelopment by the new owners.

Selling for $14.2 million, the 7.74-acre site boasts 74,000 square feet of leasable space, including a trio of strip malls, each with 90 percent current occupancy. Center Plaza strip mall tenants include Subway, Pacific Island Grill, Total Vape, Al's Music, Elegant Nails & Foot Massage, Games & Video, and Peking Express.

Center Plaza is positioned adjacent to regional shopping mall The Commons at Federal Way and is just south of the city's Town Square Park.

Andrew (Butch) Cratsenberg intends to use the sales funds through a 1031 tax-deferred exchange in order to invest in further commercial properties in Washington, as well as in Arizona. Several such properties are currently under contract to purchase. A 1031 tax-deferred exchange allows for the sale of property in order to use the funds to purchase like-kind property or properties without the need to pay capital gains on the sale.

It's understood that Center Plaza's new owners are keen to keep existing tenants while also upgrading the property starting with new signage and improved landscaping. It is not believed that the site is planned for any major redevelopment.

Located along South 320th Street, Federal Way between Highway 99 and Interstate 5, the city's Mayor Jim Farrell is currently working to turn several nearby parcels of land into a town center. The city currently owns over 20 acres of land on South 316th Street and 20th Avenue, Federal Way, much of which has been designated to three 'town center' phases.

Town Center 1, Town Center 2, and Town Center 3 will include a new performing arts venue for Federal Way with an attached 125 room hotel, park, and numerous other mixed-use developments. As part of the project, the city's mayor also intends to bring a university to Federal Way, according to recent reports.

Following the sale by Andrew Cratsenberg and Cratsenberg Properties, LLC, it's hoped that Center Plaza, which was originally purchased by Andrew Cratsenberg Sr., will now grow along with the municipality's planned developments.
