Idris Elba Covers Rolling Out Magazine

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 14, 2014

In the drama, ‘No Good Deed,’ starring Idris Elba and Taraji P. Henson, when Colin goes knock, knock during a dreadful storm and Terry answers the door, the whos there? answer is chilling; not quite the fond memory we have of the time-honored knock knock game we played with our parents and peers, or whoever would indulge us.

It starts off as an obvious plot; Colin (Elba) is a fugitive claiming hes waiting on a tow truck to help him with his stalled car. Terry (Henson), a lonely housewife, knows better but she invites him in anyway. Her intentions are innocent. But, this good deed is true to the adage and it gets punished.

While the husbands away, the housewife wants to play. Its a cat-and-mouse game that quickly gets out of hand and the petite housewife realizes Colin is an intruder to whom she offered an invitation. Terry opened her home to a stranger, one she finds easy on the eyes and who temporarily fills her empty love tank. Hes charming and shes flattered.

How did he prepare for this role of playing such a deranged killer?

The script is what the script is. I wanted to find out from people who create these situations, whats missing in their lives. You and I may have a conscious stop button, and we know what were doing is wrong but this guy doesnt have that, Elba says of getting into character to play Colin. The interview and cover photo shoot, which was held one day after my poolside revelation, took place at the tree-lined LErmitage Beverly Hills, a five-star fabuluxe hotel that sits blocks away from the famed Rodeo Drive.

Visit to read the interview in its entirety. Be sure to check out the exclusive photo shoot with celebrity photographer Kawai Matthews and video interview with host Fabiola.

Unlike other apps for the park, the map works without the need for a cell phone or data connection and is specifically designed for the mobile app platform.

Im excited to finally offer one for the iPhone and Android at the same high-quality design and great customer support which is found in every Chimani app.” says Chimani President, Kerry Gallivan. I love making apps for our national parks and it’s an honor to have one for the worlds first national park.

Users rave about the ability to follow their progress using the GPS feature, even when cell coverage fails or isn’t available at all. “Like all the features of this app, you don’t need cell access to unleash its full capabilities. Whether you are simply trying to find the closest restroom, reading more about Puff n Stuff geyser, or taking the audio tour of The Grand Loop Road (with over 60 minutes of professionally narrated material), you’ll always be able to enjoy the full experience of the app,” says Gallivan.

The new iPhone app can be downloaded from Apple’s iTunes App Store and the Android version from the Android Marketplace (keyword: “chimani”). The iPhone app is free and the Android version is only 99 cents until July 17. After that, both versions will sell for the regular price of $ 9.99.

Children & Nature Networks Family Nature Clubs in a New Spotlight with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

The Children & Nature Network (C&NN) is leading a worldwide movement to strengthen the bond between children, families, communities and nature through its many initiatives, including Family Nature Clubs. These popular clubs can be an effective vehicle for connecting children and families to nature, bringing back a disappearing element of free play for many of todays children. Last winter, C&NNs Director of the Natural Families Network, Janice Swaisgood, began working closely with the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) in the development and selection process of Nature Play grants, supported through a special gift from the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund. These competitive grants, selected through a rigorous review by a panel of industry experts, are being presented to accredited zoos and aquariums to encourage family nature play, Family Nature Clubs, and conservation education both on and off grounds.

As part of this initiative, AZA offered the grant opportunity to all of its accredited zoos and aquariums and a total of 30 grant recipients were selected to receive more than $ 200,000 in awards. Preference was given to those programs that extended nature experiences to off grounds settings, and to those who formed or worked with Family Nature Clubs registered with C&NN.

“It’s a great moment for the children and nature movement. Both AZA and C&NN care deeply about the relationship between families and the rest of the natural world, about strengthening the future of conservation, about increasing the possibility that future generations will grow up in a nature-rich world. We’re pleased to be working with the zoo and aquarium community to find new ways to connect people to nature, and in the process improve the health and well-being of children, families, communities and the planet, said Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder, and cofounder and chairman emeritus of the Children & Nature Network.

Research has shown that free play immersed in an outdoor setting is fundamental to connecting children with the natural world around them. The value of these experiences is further reinforced when shared as a family unit. The Nature Play grants provide financial, logistical and creative support for zoos and aquariums seeking to increase or enhance family-centered nature experiences and Family Nature Clubs in their communities. In turn, Family Nature Clubs help to provide logistical, creative, and moral support for their members, in addition to breaking down many of the most common barriers to getting out in nature.

The Nature Play grants also extend an opportunity for Family Nature Clubs registered with C&NN to reach out to their local accredited zoo or aquarium for collaboration and support, and are encouraged to do so. Many opportunities for collaboration exist for Family Nature Clubs in their own communities, said Swaisgood. I would highly encourage Family Nature Club leaders to reach out to educators at AZA-accredited zoos and aquariums to see where synergies lie, and where collaborations can work to strengthen the good efforts of both institutions.

The Nature Clubs Advisory Group, which served as the review committee for the Nature Play grants, is comprised of AZA members, AZA staff and Disney cast members, as well as partners from the Children & Nature Network and the North American Association for Environmental Education.

C&NN, AZA, Disney and NAAEE are all committed to building lifelong conservation values in our nations youth through connecting children and families to nature. The Nature Play grants are an important part of a worldwide effort to connect families to nature, and AZA is developing additional resources for online and on-the-ground nature play experiences.

Video Rating: 4 / 5 Interns Return Home after Successful Internships in Canada

Vancouver, Canada (PRWEB) July 31, 2014 celebrates the success of interns Jagmit Singh and Ajitesh Sohal, both students from Far Eastern University, who, earned school credit while getting practical experience in their field of interest.

As students of international relations, both interns were required to secure a practicum position and complete a minimum of 220 internship hours before qualifying for graduation. They chose to seek a practicum position abroad so as to gain international work experience and stand out from their competition. After much research, they opted to do their internship with Cross-Continental Solutions in Canada because of their support, flexibility, and interesting work projects. The organization offers international internships and volunteer abroad programs that promote cross-cultural understanding. Cross-Continentals global involvement makes their Vancouver based head office a great place for interns interested in marketing, research, writing, etc. There are also satellite projects that can be done from remote locations.

Since both Jagmit and Ajitesh are Indian nationals attending school in the Philippines, they needed visas to enter Canada. Shortly after they applied, they were accepted and invitation letters were issued to assist them with their visa applications. With the help of these invitation letters, the two interns both obtained 5-year multiple entry visitor visas for their practicum program.

After they arrived in Canada, the Cross-Continental team worked closely with the students to match the interns with projects that were in line with their career goals and interests. Participants in their domestic internship programs receive professional support and guidance as well as providing local connections that enhance their cultural experience.

Talking about his time interning with, Jagmit said, I am able to travel to Canada from the Philippines with the help of, and able to experience the uniqueness of Canadian culture while doing my internship here.”

While Ajitesh Sohal had this to say, My experience with CrossContinental was really special and unforgettable. I got to learn and research new things. He continued, “I am blessed I was given a chance to do an internship with CrossContinental.”

Their work at Cross-Continental primarily involved public relations and online marketing among other things. This provided them with lots of flexibility, allowing the interns to travel and explore Canada so long as they completed their work within the deadlines assigned to them. Intern Jagmit Singh said, The offices are located in Vancouver, but Ive been to Toronto, Montreal and Niagara, because of the flexibility they offered me to do my work. Its been an honour to have had my internship with Cross-Continental and I will not forget this exciting and amazing experience!

To summarize, Jagmit exclaimed, “This is a once in a life time experience, doing my internship which is mandatory for our practicum requirement by our university in Philippines and at the same time I get to enjoy every bit of my 2 month stay in Canada.”

In the attached video (, the interns express more thoughts about their internship experience in Canada.
