Abstract Artist Explores Asperger’s Syndrome in a Thought-Provoking Exhibit

(READING, Berkshire, February 25th, 2017) – Mahlia Amatina will be introducing her newest art exhibition, On a Spectrum – an exploration of Asperger’s syndrome, at The Peacock Gallery in Reading, Berkshire (UK) from 25th Feb – 16th March.

Known for her desire to immerse herself fully in her subject matter, Amatina’s intimate relationship with her exhibit evolved from her personal experience as an adult who was diagnosed with Asperger’s in 2015. This ‘late’ diagnosis has added a unique authenticity to this enlightening and ambitious project.

After learning of her condition, Amatina studied current research related to Asperger’s and began to attend a support group for adults who had been diagnosed with the status as an adult.

Per Amatina, “I was keen to hear more from others and how they experience their Asperger’s. I decided to create a questionnaire that would then lead on to an art exhibition. I wanted to be able to tell our story.”

Her approach was to inspire respondents to complete her questionnaire by hand and to use ‘mark-making’ as a way to illustrate their primary Asperger traits. ‘Mark-making’ in this context means using any line, dash, shape or symbol – anything non-literal – to describe how someone experiences their Asperger’s condition. They were also encouraged to include any colors that represented their experiences. Completed surveys were returned to her from the UK, Europe, Asia, and the United States.

In developing the exhibition, Amatina compiled their responses, along with her personal introspection, to create paintings, videos and creative writings. Per Amatina, “The narrative came to life, as an Asperger’s community came together to help inform the art.”

With an increasing number of adults being diagnosed with Asperger’s, Consultant Neuropsychologist Dr. Trevor Powell comments that “there is a greater awareness of the condition, in particular through the media.” The expert who has been diagnosing adults with Asperger’s for more than ten years is attending the private view and looks forward to the exhibition: “I’m very excited to see the outcome of this hugely impressive art project.”

The National Autistic Society estimates that there are currently around 700,000 people living with autism in the UK. Autism is more evident in a child than in an adult. As an adult, those with Asperger’s are often perceived as being only ‘quirky’ and having difficulty connecting with others in social interactions. Many are also preoccupied with particular interest that borders on obsessive. Most of them are exceptionally intelligent with unique gifts. In some cases, the reaction they experience as someone who is different than the norm leads to anxiety and depression and a diminished opportunity to fit in the community.

On a Spectrum – an Exploration of Asperger’s Syndrome is a creative, provoking and inspiring exhibit that calls awareness to the challenges and opportunities that an adult with Asperger’s faces.

Dutch invention: A great ‘Plop’ with every bottle you open

A great sound. That nice hard plop when you open a bottle of champagne. That great plop can now be heard whenever you open a bear or a coke. Thanks to the Plopr. A dutch invention that has been worked on for several years. As of today Plopr is listed on Kickstarter to crowdfund money for a first production.








Johan van de Pol (27) from the Netherlands, is the inventor of the Plopr. He says: “Five years ago during a party a friend of mine opened a bottle of beer with the backside of a lighter. It opened with an amazing ‘Plop’ sound. Later that evening after several tries I finally succeeded to open my bear with a ‘Plop’ using a lighter. I learned that every human movement can be replicated using a machine or a tool. I promised my friends that I would invent something that would be easier to use than a lighter. I still hear them laughing at that statement. That event made me even more determined to invent a tool with which everybody would be able to make that great ‘Plop’ sound.”

Bookshelf Bracket

Johan has been busy for a number of years developing all kinds of prototypes that look nothing like how the Plopr eventually came out. In the summer of 2016 he finally achieved a breakthrough. Nothing other than a bookshelf bracket eventually formed the inspiration for the working prototype that Johan developed with his brother-in-law, who is an engineering student. They invested thousands of hours and as a result, everybody is now able to open his bottle with a ‘Plop’. And a great side-effect is that the cap flies through the air. Don’t you want to plop it? You can also use the Plopr to open a bottle the ‘old school’ way.

Kickstarter

Starting today, the Plopr can be found on Kickstarter with the goal to fund €10.000. With this starting capital we can produce and distribute the first openers and we can search for a distributor. The Plopr can be personalized on orders consisting of a minimum 100 pieces, making it a great personal gift to use for promotional purposes for brands.

SQUAREGAL: DIAMONDS ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN A GIRL’S BEST FRIEND German-based Jewelry Aims to Transform Diamonds into Everyday Accessories

Munich, Bavaria, Germany – February 12th, 2017 – Marilyn Monroe may have once sung that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but now one jewelry startup, Squaregal, aims to change that perception by reinventing their image through modern new styles and redefining prices to be more affordable for everyday wear.


Squaregal: diamonds aren’t just for evening soirees, but also for everyday wear such as jeans and t-shirts

“For too long, diamonds have been caged up as a prestigious stone, only to be worn on special occasions and kept locked away when not,” said Audrey Cheng, founder of Squaregal. “At Squaregal, we want to change that—we believe beautiful things should be on display as chic, fashionable accessories that are perfect for every outfit and every mood.”

Founded in 2016, the company’s available prices (with prices ranging between €80 and €600) are a result of a direct partnership with a Hong Kong manufacturer specializing in gemstone jewelry. With a new collection launching every month based around a different “theme girl,” the company is already showing that diamonds are a limitless stone—and one that can be shaped to fit any girl’s personal identity.

For more information and to see Squaregal’s current collection, please visit http://www.squaregal.com. For media inquiries, please contact at (+49) 163-214-5116 or email at assistance@squaregal.com.

RunningTek Introduces Its New Facebook Brand Page

Ty Harris, the public relations manager for RunningTek, announced its social media presence on the popular site, Facebook, with its new brand page – RunningTek. The outdoor fitness product company has already begun building its audience there and plans to grow its presence by providing meaningful content and engaging posts. The RunningTek brand page will be used, not only to build its existing audience but also as a means to inform followers of announcements and offerings of its products. Discounts on future purchases are a common sight to their supporters.

RunningTek’s primary audience consists of runners of all kinds – marathoners, obstacle course racers, trail runners, or just casual joggers who are trying to get in a little better shape. It also includes others who incorporate outdoor exercise into their lives – cyclists, triathletes, mountain climbers, motor cyclers, etc.

The brand page is another in their continued efforts to communicate their brand and mission to the fitness world. RunningTek’s mission is to provide products specifically designed for the needs of outdoor athletes of all types, from beginners to the elite.

In keeping with that mission, RunningTek’s first product launch was the Reflective Running Vest, already available on amazon.com. This safety vest provides high visibility for runners, cyclists, or even motorcyclers by incorporating reflective strips on all sides of the jacket. Many runners and bikers prefer to exercise early or late in the day, during times of lowlight. Having proper reflective wear is critical, especially for those athletes that choose to work out on passable roads. The reflective safety vest is made of a mesh material keeping it lightweight, very breathable, and minimalist in design. The vest is bright yellow making the wearer highly visible during daylight and is intended for men and women. It is offered in three sizes (small, medium, and large) which are themselves adjustable.

The company plans to grow its online presence through other social media outlets as well, including Pinterest and Twitter. RunningTek also continues to provide active outreach to its customers (and potential customers) through its website at www.runningtek.com.

About RunningTek

RunningTek was started by a small group of sports and fitness enthusiasts. They are providers of sports and outdoor specialty products specifically made for outdoor athletes, from beginners to the elite. The Reflective Running Vest is an example of a product specifically catered to runners who work out during non-daylight hours and require safety apparel to suit their needs.

Qualovefy Dating Site Sets New Standards

February 7, 2017 – Rock Hill, South Carolina – All matchmaking sites work the same way—until now. At Qualovefy.com, users can build their own
matches from head to toe, a one-time process that takes about five minutes.

Most dating sites allow users to browse profiles or look for pictures that are attractive. Others leave it up to the Website to find compatible matches.
New startup Qualovefy, LLP, set out to do things differently. The owners and algorithms do not presume to know who might be the best match for each member
. Instead, the company believes users should set their own standards then design their own dates.

Finding Internet love is now socially acceptable, even to those who still have their reasons for avoiding the process. Qualovefy co-owner Kevin Douglas,
46, asks, “What’s not to like about having the power to create the ideal match?”



While some dating sites use questionnaires, Qualovefy.com eliminates the process with clickable options. Other easy-to-use features include photo uploading, cropping, and rotation; blocking and reporting site violators; instant messaging, sending Q-Love, or blocking contacts based on subpar match scores. The dashboard page has a link to a video that demonstrates the site’s major features.

At Qualovefy, a member must first build a profile. Clicking the Lifestyle button brings up other options for selecting things like education, strong
areas, heart & mind, stability, etc. Then, touch a sexy mannequin to begin building a physical profile. For example, touch the Head & Face area then choose brown eyes, green eyes, medium lips, etc. Touch any part of the body to build that area of the profile.

Creating a date works the same as creating a profile, but here the site gets more interesting. Click any option until it turns green to make it a
qualifying, necessary element. In other words, “Think of any personal niche for this site,” says Douglas. “Qualovefy becomes every dating site, but none of them can do everything that Qualovefy does.”

More important, member discovery is only possible when a date is built, and a match is found based on specified standards or options. Membership is permanently free (no credit card requests) for those who sign up before Valentine’s Day, and this includes the use of all site features.
