Grant brings new reading program to Clarksdale, Mississippi schools

Funding by Walton Family Foundation and Barksdale Institute makes MRR possible

We are excited to partner with the Walton Family Foundation and the Reading Roadmap to align afterschool tutoring and family supports with our school-day reading instruction and intervention.”

— Asst. Supt. Dr. Toya Harrell-Matthews

CLARKSDALE, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES, October 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new program is coming which will help Clarksdale students read at grade level, a prospect with life-changing benefits.

Asst. Supt. Dr. Toya Harrell-Matthews announced that the Clarksdale Municipal School District was awarded a grant for the 2018-2019 school year for four elementary schools in the district to incorporate the Mississippi Reading Roadmap (MRR). The afterschool program is designed to help children in grades K-3 raise their reading proficiency. Targeting, but not limited to, at-risk readers, the program aligns afterschool instruction with what students are taught during the school day.

Dr. Harrell-Matthews said four magnet schools with a 50 percent or higher free and reduced lunch population would participate: Booker T. Washington, Kirkpatrick, George H. Oliver, and Heidelberg.

MRR is a partnership between the Clarksdale Municipal School District and the Mississippi Department of Education. Funding for the initiative has been provided by the Walton Family Foundation and the Barksdale Institute.

“We believe providing interventions for our youngest learners is an investment that will pay great dividends,” Dr. Harrell-Matthews said. “We are excited for the opportunity to partner with the Walton Family Foundation and the Reading Roadmap to align afterschool tutoring and family supports with our school-day reading instruction and intervention.”

The reading initiative builds upon policies established by Governor Phil Bryant to foster early reading achievement, focused on bringing at-risk readers up to grade level.

Dr. Harrell-Matthews said she anticipates about 50 students will participate at each site. One program coordinator will be hired by the district to oversee the program. Dr. Harrell-Matthews will serve as the supervisor of the MRR initiative at Clarksdale.

Using Reading Roadmap curriculums and working with the organization to collect and analyze data, the MRR program at Clarksdale will kick off in early November.

“We are so excited to work with the Clarksdale district,” said Andrew Hysell, Executive Director of the Reading Roadmap. “We know that the district has great administration and great teachers, and has a very supportive community. Those are the keys to making the Reading Roadmap successful.”

According to national reading measures, nearly two-thirds of America’s fourth graders are not proficient readers. Early reading skills can predict lifelong success. Without early literacy skills, students are four times less likely to graduate high school on time.

One feature of KRR is an eight-session series called Literacy-integrated Family Engagement (LIFE) that brings parents and siblings of students in the program to the school to support children’s reading. The participants eat a meal together and engage in relationship-strengthening activities built around literacy. Dr. Harrell-Matthews said the LIFE series will kick off after the new year.

CCHR held an exhibit this week in Miami that presented shocking evidence of mental health abuse and dangerous psychiatric drugging of children.

Over 7 million children 17 and under are taking psychotropic drugs in the United States and we want to know why pharmaceuticals for kids are being promoted so heavily to parents and teachers.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit watchdog that exposes human rights violations in the field of mental health, held an exhibit this week in Miami that presented shocking evidence of mental health abuse and dangerous psychiatric drugging of children.

Hundreds of concerned Floridians toured an exhibit highlighting the history of psychiatry and exposing mental health abuse this week in Miami. The exhibit, Psychiatry: An Industry of Death, travels all over the world reaching tens of thousands of people annually. Designed to raise awareness on such human rights abuse as the use of electroshock, involuntary examination and the drugging of children with dangerous psychiatric medications, the exhibit is based off of the permanent museum located at the international headquarters for CCHR in Los Angeles, California.

Hosted by the Florida chapter of CCHR, the exhibit attracted educators, psychologists and other mental health practitioners who are concerned with the surge in psychiatric labeling and drugging of children. Stating that they have seen the abuses shown in the exhibit firsthand, these professionals pledged to work with CCHR to help prevent mental health abuses in Florida.

“Over 7 million children 17 and under are taking psychotropic prescription drugs in the United States,” states Diane Stein, president of CCHR Florida. “And we want to know why pharmaceuticals for kids are being promoted so heavily to parents and teachers.”

The Florida chapter of CCHR also has a permanent installation of this exhibit located in their center in downtown Clearwater. Unveiled in July of 2015, the Florida version of the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum, presents the unvarnished history of psychiatry while also providing information on the state of psychiatry today. Consisting of 14 audiovisual displays revealing the cold, hard facts about psychiatric abuses, the museum uses interviews from more than 160 doctors, attorneys, educators and survivors to expose the multi-billion dollar fraud that is psychiatry.

Over 5,700 people have toured the Florida museum including students from nursing schools and technical colleges from across the state who come to the museum to go through the 2-hour self-guided tour as part of their clinical days finding the experience to be informative and eye opening. Coupling tours of the museum with seminars and workshops delivered by attorneys and healthcare professionals on the mental health law, known as the Baker Act, CCHR is working to educate lawmakers, doctors and all private citizens on mental health abuse and their rights under the law. The museum is open daily from 10am until 10pm and events are held weekly and monthly. Both are free to the general public. To learn more, please call 727-442-8820 or visit www.cchrflorida.org.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

How do I Know What my Workers’ Compensation Settlement Covers?

Saffren and Weinberg - Personal Injury Attorneys

Saffren and Weinberg don’t treat your workers’ comp case like any regular case; we use the latest practices to get you the most workers’ comp settlement.

Too many people are uninformed about what their workers' compensation settlements cover, so we help make that crystal clear for our clients.”

— Kenneth Saffren, Esq.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

At Saffren and Weinberg, Marc Alan Weinberg, Attorney and Kenneth Scott Saffren, Attorney are partners. The firm’s tagline is “The People’s Voice In Court.” They make themselves available via phone at (215) 309-9577 or by email on the Saffren and Weinberg website. Saffren and Weinberg provide a no-charge, complimentary case review and answers questions for prospective clients.

Your Montgomery County Workers’ Compensation Law Firm

Workers’ Compensation or Workman’s Comp. These words don’t mean anything until you or a loved one is hurt on the job. However, these words mean a great deal to insurance companies because they try to ignore them when a worker’s compensation claim has been filed. There are more terms that an insurance company will use to confuse you and reduce your settlement value. This is why it is crucial that you seek a workers’ compensation law firm, such as Saffren & Weinberg. When you contact our law firm, you can count on an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to treat you like family. This means we don’t treat your workers’ compensation case like any regular case; we use the latest practices to get you the most workers’ compensation settlement. We will explain all the tricks and terminology the attorneys from the insurance company will use. We also explain a comp claim, including:

Medical Benefits
Disability Benefits
Types of Settlements
Settlement agreement
Weekly Benefits
Wage Loss
Lump sum Payment or Settlement
Medicare

We don’t ever want our clients to feel overwhelmed or intimidated because they are an injured worker. Our clients have a right to be compensated when they have been injured on the job site, whether from malfunctioning equipment or a co-worker’s carelessness. There are many parts to a comp case. We help people understand the medical care you will need now and future medical treatments (if needed), as well as medical bills. A personal injury determines if a person will be able to work again. It is broken down into the type of disability: total temporary disability and partial temporary disability and total permanent disability and partial permanent disability. Total and partial temporary disabilities do not result in a permanent injury that prevents a person from working full-time or ever working again. Injured workers are entitled to your workers’ compensation benefits until that person returns to their job. Total and partial permanent is the opposite; people that are permanently injured and cannot return to their job or any other job ever again. This results in a lawsuit to recoup costs for medical and miscellaneous expenses (current and future). We do not often take the insurance companies first settlement offer; we know they can often pay much more than they are willing. We strive to get the largest settlement amount possible, so our clients can live the remainder of their (or their loved one’s) life comfortably, not worrying about the bills but focusing on quality of life.

Below are some key questions our clients have asked. Please contact us to learn more and to file a claim.

So what does my settlement cover?
Pennsylvania recognizes workers’ compensation benefits for employees who are injured on the job and suffer a work injury. These benefits include medical benefits and, in some cases, partial wage replacement. Pennsylvania has one of the most employee-friendly workers’ compensation programs in the country. Unfortunately, filing a claim is still difficult and requires compliance with a series of rules and guidelines. In the event that you are injured on the job in Pennsylvania and have questions about filing a claim, it is important to seek advice from an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.

What is Workers’ Compensation Insurance?
This is an insurance program that requires employers in Pennsylvania to provide employees with insurance to cover injuries in the workplace. Pennsylvania workers’ compensation laws require qualifying employees to receive compensation for medical bills and payment for lost wages, regardless of who is at fault. In exchange, employees cannot file personal injury claims against their employer.

Who is covered?
Every employer in the state of Pennsylvania that employs one or more employee, part-time or full-time, must purchase workers’ compensation coverage. If a business has been operating for more than three years, they may be able to self-insure, but this is less common. Most businesses choose one of the following: purchase a policy through an agent; purchase coverage from the private sector insurance brokers; join a certified group self-insurance fund, or obtain insurance through the State Workers’ Insurance Fund.

Each business option ensures that employees who are hurt on the job, while acting within the scope of their employment duties, are able to collect compensation for their losses. However, not all workers in Pennsylvania qualify. The following workers are excluded from workers’ compensation: volunteers, independent contractors, domestic employees, agricultural laborers, etc.

Some employees that qualify for workers’ compensation will be barred from recovery if the injury is self-inflicted if the injury resulted from an illegal act, the injury resulted from illegal drug use or intoxication. Injuries that fall outside of these excluded categories will be covered by workers’ compensation insurance if the injury is work-related. A work-related injury is one that occurs while an employee is working for the benefit of the employer or becomes ill as a result of those duties. An injury can even happen by a third-party on the job site, such as faulty equipment from a construction contractor. Many believe a work injury must be catastrophic to be awarded damages. This could not be further from the truth. A work injury range in severity from carpel tunnel and a bulging disc to paralysis and loss of a limb. Also, not all injuries are clearly linked to a specific work duty, so it is important to contact a workers’ compensation attorney to handle any legal hurdles that could impede your ability to collect compensation. And filing a claim right away can prevent evidence from disappearing.

What Benefits are Available?

Payments for lost wages will total two-thirds of the employee’s average weekly wage; the maximum payable for 2017 is $995 per week.
Specific loss awards will be rewarded if the worker lost the permanent use of a body part or received permanent disfigurement as a result of the injury.
Payment for surgical and medical services, medicine, supplies, hospital treatment, prostheses, and orthopedic appliances.
Death benefits.

Any wage loss payments will not be paid until at least seven days after the date of the injury. If you are out of work for two weeks, you can receive retroactive payment for the first seven days. If you report the injury promptly and the claim is accepted by the insurer, you can expect to receive the first check within three weeks of the injury; afterward, you will receive a weekly check. If your claim is not immediately accepted, you can receive temporary compensation for up to three months. If your claim is denied passed this threshold, you, as the injured employee, can file an appeal with the Office of Adjudication.

At Saffren & Weinberg, we take pride in our exceptional attorney-client relationship. When it comes to a work-related injury, knowing what a worker’s comp claim is and how it works will provide more peace of mind during this difficult time. We invite you to visit our website to get better idea of how our workers’ compensation lawyers work, including our case examples. Our contact information form makes it easy to contact us, and you can provide a message to save time on your case. No matter your medical condition from your job-related injury, we can get you the disability payments you deserve. We have successfully won many injured-employee cases from a number of zip codes in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

EJL Wireless Research Reports FCC Regulations Pave Way Forward for U.S. Outdoor Small Cells

Earl Lum, President EJL Wireless Research

Product Code: USFCCLA-S-2018

FCC in a flurry of activity to execute 5G FAST Plan; Results of Report & Orders Preempt State/Local Government Right of Way Jurisdiction

The need for a fair and reasonable fee structure is important for both the wireless industry as well as the State/local governments with regard to small personal wireless facilities”

— Earl J. Lum, President EJL Wireless Research

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, October 25, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since the beginning of 2017, the Federal Communications Commission has issued five Report & Orders and three Declaratory Rulings relating to the streamlining of small wireless facilities (small cells) as part of its 5G FAST plan to speed up the Federal, State, and local government review process. This has been hampered by local moratoria, National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA)/National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) reviews, excessive non-recurring and recurring fees, in-kind services, and lengthy permit application review periods.

This report analyzes each of the Report & Orders and Declaratory Rulings that are focused on three main areas as they relate to small wireless facilities:

CFR 47 Sections 253 and 332 Definitions and Compliance
NHPA/NEPA Compliance
Pole Attachment One Touch Make Ready (OTMR)

The culmination of which resulted in the addition of Title 47 Part 1 Subpart U which defines state and local government regulations with regard to personal wireless service facilities per FCC 18-133.

Additionally, we analyze the current revision of Senate Bill S.3157 titled the STREAMLINE Small Cell Deployment Act that was introduced in June 2018 and its potential impact on small personal wireless facilities.

As the U.S. mobile operators launch 5G wireless services and continue to deploy 4G networks for capacity, coverage and densification, the ability to collocate on street lights, signal lights, and utility poles within the metro markets as well as in smaller communities remains one of the biggest bottlenecks for small cell deployment. Additionally, the FCC’s 18-149 Report & Order paves the way for CBRS PAL licenses to be auctioned off in the future along with the launch of GAA-based CBRS networks in 2019 which also drives deployment of 4G small cells. The FCC’s upcoming Spectrum Frontiers Auction 101 and 102 adds additional microwave spectrum at 28GHz and 24GHz, respectively, for 5G small cell use across the United States that ultimately will be deployed on small wireless facilities.

“The need for a non-discriminatory process and a fair and reasonable fee structure is important for both the wireless industry as well as the State/local governments with regard to the rights-of-way for small personal wireless facilities. Are the proposed solutions from the FCC the perfect answer and balance the needs of both sides? No, and we believe the impact of current and future Federal and State legislation regarding small cells may ultimately lead to lengthy legal battles over State/local government rights,” says Lum.

Walkers at the 2017 NYC #LymphWalk

November 10 #LymphWalk Prospect Park, Brooklyn – two decades of education, research, and advocacy

We are commemorating 20 years of fighting LE and LD through education, research, and advocacy. And this year, the passage of a lymphedema education bill in New York.”

— William Repicci, LE&RN President and CEO

NEW YORK, NY, USA, October 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — LE&RN and its New York State Chapter will host the ninth annual New York Run/Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases on Saturday, November 10, in beautiful Prospect Park, Brooklyn, at the Grecian Shelter (The Peristyle.)

This year, we have joined the State Chapter in hosting our first true New York 5K Run/Walk and we’ll be commemorating LE&RN’s 20th year of fighting LE (lymphedema) and LD (lymphatic disease) through education, research, and advocacy. What began as a local grassroots’ effort has grown to include State as well as International Chapters.

At the New York Run/Walk, we are looking forward to seeing advocates who have been there from the beginning as well as brand new activists who share our goal – cures for lymphedema and lymphatic diseases. The New York Chapter can be particularly proud of its accomplishments over the past year, which includes the passage of a lymphedema education bill in New York State.”

Is Arthritis Covered Under Workers’ Compensation?

You have the right to file for workers’ compensation benefits when your work injury reactivates, accelerates your arthritis.

Many people are unsure of what work related injuries they can receive workers' compensation benefits for.”

— Craig Altman, Esq.

VINELAND, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, October 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

Did you know you have the right to file for workers’ compensation benefits when your work injury reactivates, accelerates your arthritis, or you develop degenerative disc disease? Often, employees who have these benefits for a preexisting injury, related to degenerative disc disease or arthritis are misunderstood which can be concerning. Having the opportunity to speak with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer about such legal matters will allow you to decide how to deal with these conditions and choose the proper course of action.

Arthritis

The word arthritis refers to joint inflammation. Generally, it is used to describe many types of rheumatic conditions that directly affect someone’s joints (tissue around the joint and connective joint tissue). The following list is common types of arthritis:

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Osteoarthritis
Gout
Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE or lupus)
Fibromyalgia

Arthritis symptoms vary, and the onset can be sudden or gradual. Symptoms commonly caused include redness, swelling, stiffness, pain around one or more joint, and you may experience a limitation of a function around the supportive body part.

Degenerative Disc Disease

A widespread condition that tends to lead to severe neck and lower back pain is also known as degenerative disc disease. Not classified as a disease, degenerative disc disease is a medical condition caused by a damaged spine-disc.

Most people experience this medical state because your spinal discs degenerate and lose their ability to take in shock naturally over time. If you injure a disc, you can aggravate and accelerate your degenerative condition. Usually, this pain is the result of another back or neck pain related injury. Such trauma is often classified as a ruptured disc, slipped disc, a tear in the outer corner of a disc, or a herniated disc.

Work Injuries That can Lead to the Aggravation of Such Conditions

Depending on your job, you may be more susceptible to aggravating a preexisting condition like degenerative disc disease or arthritis. If your job requires you to perform a repetitive motion, to remain sedentary for an extended period or includes high impact activity you are at a higher risk of provoking your arthritis. Examples of such jobs include assembly line work, construct work, typing, and other types of manual labor.

Similarly to arthritis, people with degenerative disc disease can trigger their condition through manual labor jobs that require twisting, turning, or repetitive heavy lifting. Repetitive motion labor injuries can seriously affect your health, and a workers’ compensation attorney can assist with the problem.

Aggravation of Degenerative Disc Disease and Arthritis related to Workers’ Compensation

When looking for workers’ comp benefits due to aggravated preexisting arthritis or degenerative disc disease, it is essential that you understand the conditions that are covered. Compensation could be redeemed regardless if the prior developed injury was work-related.

When submitting a workers’ comp claim for compensation related to an aggravated preexisting condition, that person must show for the injury and how it was work related. If the resulting disability prevents someone from working, then it needs to be documented.

If a disability did not stem from the initial injury does not mean a person cannot claim compensation for the given disability that was the outcome of a natural progression of said new injury. There’s a good chance the new work-related injury was a factor causing the prior condition and seeking the help of a workers’ comp attorney will help you determine if your case is justified.

How Workers’ Compensation Law Works for Degenerative Disc Disease and Arthritis

The laws of workers’ compensation require employers to have an insurance policy set that covers a workplace injury for employees. Compensation coverage is often available regardless of the employee’s prior physical condition or employer liability.

Here are the general legal eligibility requirements for any workers’ compensation claim:

An employee suffers a work-related mental or physical injury
The resulting disability hinders an employee from doing their job
The employee must provide notice to their employer within the statutorily required period of time

While carpal tunnel syndrome and arthritis might feel similar, and can both be justified as workers’ compensation cases, you should see a doctor to determine which condition it is for medical evidence.

Contact a Lawyer with Experience to Discuss the Aggravation of Your Degenerative Disc Disease or Arthritis

Given the time restrictions revolving around a workers’ compensation claim against your employer, it is crucial that you seek legal help promptly. By speaking to a lawyer with experience in this practice area, you will be able to feel at ease when it comes to your aggravated, preexisting injury. Here at the Law Offices of Craig Altman, we would be happy to help you throughout the claim process. Please contact us at (215) 703-9889 or visit our website for more information. We will provide you with a free consultation and help you win your case!

CCHR to Protest the Drugging of Millions of Children at Psych Congress in Orlando

Currently over 7 million U.S. children are being prescribed psychiatric drugs, with more than 600 thousand between the ages of zero to five.

With more than 7 million kids on psychiatric drugs in the U.S., the mental health watchdog, CCHR, is protesting this surge in labeling and drugging of children.

Mental health has been reduced to the prescribing of mind altering drugs and new research shows that the trend is worsening especially among children less than 2 years of age.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, is holding a protest march in Orlando, Florida on October 27th, at the Psych Congress in response to the surge in psychiatric labeling and drugging of children.

In response to the drugging of children with dangerous psychiatric medications, the Florida chapter of CCHR is holding a protest at Psych Congress in Orlando, Florida on Saturday, October 27th. Anyone interested in joining the protest should contact CCHR Florida at (727) 442-8820. The protestors will meet up at 11:00am at 5980 Destination Pkwy, Orlando to start the march.

Currently over 7 million U.S. children are being prescribed psychiatric drugs, with more than 600 thousand between the ages of zero to five. Children are being drugged simply because psychiatry has labeled normal childhood behaviors and repackaged them as “mental disorders” resulting in millions of children being drugged for behaviors reclassified by psychiatry as “disease.” [1]

Reports show that psychotropic drug prescriptions among babies doubled from 2013 to 2014 and that psychiatrists are prescribing these drugs to young children and babies for aggression, temper tantrums, or lethargy despite the more than 400,000 adverse reaction reports filed with the U.S. FDA. [2] [3]

“Mental health has been reduced to the prescribing of mind altering drugs and new research shows that the trend is worsening especially among children less than 2 years of age,” said Diane Stein, president of CCHR Florida. “We want to know why pharmaceuticals for kids are being promoted so heavily to parents, teachers and health care professionals.”

Groundbreaking new two-part liquid pours into existing walls and hardens to become bulletproof – allows kids and staff to shelter in place until police arrive.

I invented Rhino Hide because I have a daughter in high school. I see school shootings occurring more and more frequently. It is sickening to imagine this sort of violence occurring at her school,”

— Jason Giddings

SAGLE, IDAHO, UNITED STATES, October 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rhino Hide LLC today announced it will launch a line of liquid chemical wall-filler products that turn any classroom into a bulletproof safe-room where children and teachers can instantly shelter in place while waiting for the police to arrive. The projectile-resistant product can also be used to fortify community buildings against storms such as hurricanes or tornadoes.

“I invented Rhino Hide because I have a daughter in high school. I see school shootings occurring more and more frequently. It is sickening to imagine this sort of violence occurring at her school,” said Jason Giddings, Rhino Hide’s CEO. “So far, 256 regular folks have invested over $78,000 in the StartEngine campaign and made it possible to build an entire company to solve this epidemic.”

Rhino Hide’s competitors install small, bulletproof rooms inside one corner of each classroom. Precious time is wasted moving kids from their seats into the barricades. With Rhino Hide the classrooms are the saferooms. Kids can just wait for the police to arrive, safely in their seats.

Rhino Hide LLC is actively recruiting a national network of over 300 companies that will become certified installers all over the United States. This network will provide highly-trained, quality installation and customer service.

In addition to schools, Rhino Hide Bulletproof Wall Filler can be installed into community storm shelters, DIY home shelters, office and government buildings, police cars, military bases, movie theaters and even banks, protecting people wherever they gather from active shooters and severe storms.

Rhino Hide is currently seeking a total investment of $107,000 in equity crowdfunding. Anyone can invest as little as $100 to own a part of the company at startengine.com/rhino-hide.

The Pink Preacher Of Dallas Launches The World’s First 1090 Ministry

Through Ecclesiastic Entrepreneurship, The Pink Preacher plans on having 10% of the members financially supporting the remaining 90% of members.

. God has called the Pink Preacher to financially support 18,000 Bolder Doers with 150 Ecclesiastic entrepreneurs.”

— Andre Paul

DALLAS, TX, UNITED STATES, October 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In Acts 6, seven people were appointed to wait tables, that is, to make money through Kingdom Entrepreneurism. The wealth they created supported hundreds to spread the Gospel. The result? The number of souls saved MULTIPLIED!!!! The goal of Bolder Doers is to financially support 18,000 Bolder Doers with 100+ Soulprayners to reach millions of souls across the globe.

Members tithes, instead of going to build buildings or to church staff salaries, go to build Kingdom businesses. The profits from these businesses go to support Bolder Doers members to go and do God’s work. Eventually, these kingdom businesses will financially support 90% of Bolder Doers members to do God’s work.

And Bolder Doers members are expected to watch our weekly messages at their convenience and financially donate to Bolder Doers. If they can’t donate, they can Crash Tables (www.CrashTables.Com) once a week. Vote in large Bolder Doers ministry decisions. Complete the Bolder Doers course and meet with Bolder Doers in their community once a month. They are encouraged to continue to attend their local church.

Bolder Doer's seven-year goal includes supporting 18,000 Bolder Doers across the globe with salaries up to $72,000.

One report states seven out ten kids are leaving the church. 47% of people don’t go to church in America. For every 1000 people that attend Sunday church in America, only 2 people are financially supported to reach the lost. Only 4% of the tithes that go into a church goes outside the four walls to help people. 90% of Christians would quit their jobs to expand’s God kingdom if they were financially supported.

Like it or not, as an employee – hourly or salaried – people are just economic slaves. Western churches keep Christians in financial slavery because they operate as a traditional money-making business and provide no hope of economic freedom. Jesus set people free spiritually. He also left an economic model to set Christians economically free too. Bolder Doers ministry is based on the Biblical V-model found Acts 6 that will set members free from financial slavery. In Acts 6, there's a Biblical model that allowed seven people to financially support – wait tables – so hundreds could go and do God’s work.

"Don’t take our word for it. Read Acts 6 and discover for yourself the Biblical model that allowed seven people to financially support hundreds to go and do God’s work," states the Pink Preacher. Paul Brough, the Pink Preacher, is the founder of Bolder Doers. For 20 years he was fearlessly living the perfect life absent of God. He didn’t suffer one day of depression in 20 years. Then 12 years ago, an undeniable miracle occurred that convinced him that God is Alive. God called Paul to give up his $3,000 a day IT career and his perfect Caribbean life. By faith, he faced his greatest fears and invested $100K in God’s outrageous Kingdom business. Paul was in AWE as he experienced 15 miracles and a divine 4 month ROI. God has called the Pink Preacher to financially support 18,000 Bolder Doers with 150 Ecclesiastic entrepreneurs. Or as Paul calls them, Soulprayneurs.

Everything Bolder Doers ministry does glorifies God and lifts up the name of Jesus. We’ve already gathered talented, creative people to be part of the a new 1090 Kingdom film studios. The film studio, Castle V, will eventually provide the economic financial engine to financially support 18,000 Bolder Doers to go and do God's work.

"Rejoice Doers, change is coming," states the Pink Preacher. Within the next seven years, Bolder Doers’ kingdom businesses will be able to financially support 18,000 Bolder Doers and reach millions of souls around the world. God also told the Paul Brough if he runs to be the next President of the United States he'd win.
