Val Pym explains how the Cloud of the Spirit leads the Church towards its destiny in Earth

I would like to assure readers that, though things look dark and sometimes frightening, there are great times ahead. If your faith is in Christ and His Cross, you need not be shaken or afraid.”

— Val Pym

QUEENSLAND, AUSTRALIA, April 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Christian eschatology, prophecies about the End Times, have been a subject of fascination and research for countless believers. Val Pym delves into the matter with her own exploration of the Scripture. With "The Cloud Moves On – End of Time Insights" she charts how the Church, or the mystical body of Christ, is approaching its destiny on Earth.

In the pages of her treatise, she explains how the Cloud of the Spirit is guiding the Church towards its fate as the "Glorious Church" destined to usher in the Kingdom of God on Earth as it is in Heaven. Her book contains five parts that use the Typology of Israel, in which she unlocks spiritual truths that will aid her readers in realizing deeper revelations. She expounds upon the identity and nature of the Church, and the spiritual truths that compel it towards its course.

She reveals how when Christ left the infant Church, they had a commission to make disciples of all of the nations. The promise was that the Holy Spirit would guide the community of faith into all truth and show them things to come as Jesus promised . She likens this to the pillar of cloud and fire that led the Israelites to their Promised Land. She draws from Church history and the history of Israel as chronicled in the Bible to establish the pattern or trajectory of the Church. She holds that this shows that the Church is soon to move into times of victory and glory in following the Cloud of the Spirit.

"I felt I needed to share the great revelations I was receiving as I studied the Types of Israel and to try to make people aware of the significance of the times in which we live." Pym says. "I would like to assure readers that, though things look dark and sometimes frightening, there are great times ahead. If your faith is in Christ and His Cross, you need not be shaken or afraid."

About the Author
Val Pym hailed from the south of Queensland Australia but now resides with husband Rob in the tropical north. She is the mother of four children, seven grandchildren and one great grandchild.

Wisconsin-grown and locally owned business opens first-ever Greenhouse/Garden Center in Downtown Milwaukee

Milwaukee's Walkers Point Adds New Greenhouse/Garden Center

MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, April 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — 414 Flowers, a unique pop-up greenhouse/garden center, announced plans to open their third greenhouse/garden in Milwaukee's Walkers Point on May 1, 2021. The new location, at 209 E. National Ave located between Harbor View and Walkers Point neighborhoods, will be home to the only greenhouse/garden center in downtown Milwaukee.

414 Flowers specializes in the greenhouse/garden pop-up concept, a unique take on the traditional seasonal garden center. After only four years in business and securing three locations, success appears inevitable for owner George Holtz and his one-off business model as the company is already negotiating a fourth and fifth location in the greater Milwaukee area.

Greenhouses and garden centers are not a novel idea so what drives this business’s success?
By converting all their locations into greenhouses, 414 Flowers can maintain a high-quality plant stock, keep the climate-controlled, and offer an overall more pleasant shopping experience. The dome-like structures offer a variety of display tables and trellises on the interior and exterior while providing a high-quality selection of annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, patio pots, herbs, and vegetables at very affordable prices.

Also, unlike big box garden centers, 414 Flowers offers products solely from Wisconsin's growers, including Stange's Greenhouse, Milwaukee, Prange's in Jackson, Wausaukee Plant Market Mequon, and Schroeder's Fox Valley Greenhouse.

"Choosing to add our third location to Walkers Point was simple," says owner George Holtz. "Walkers-Point is fast-growing with a diverse neighborhood known for its nightlife scene. It's the exciting place to live and visit in Milwaukee," Holtz added.

Perfect timing might be on Holtz's side, as with the COVID pandemic, gardening is popular again. When the lockdown hit, more people gravitated to plant gardens. Whether due to fears, food insecurity, lack of funds, or simply finding something to do to pass the time, the gardening boom left suppliers depleted of seeds and inventory. One national retailer even reported more seeds sold in 2020 than any year prior since opening in 1876.

Besides the new Walkers Point location, 414 Flowers has two additional spots. One located outside of the Wauwatosa Outpost at 7000 W. State Street and another is located at the Outpost in Bayview at 2826 S. Kinnikinnic Avenue. All three locations will be open May 1 through July 2, seven days a week Monday through Friday, 11 am to 7 pm, Saturdays and Sundays, 9:30 am to 7:30 pm.

You can learn more about 414 Flowers by logging onto their new website at www.414Flowers.com.

About 414 Flowers
Since being a kid, George Holtz has always been into flowers and plants. He also remembered going to a pop-up store many years ago when he was inspired to bring the combination of flowers and plants to metro-Milwaukee residents. By hiring knowledgeable staff and focusing on local growers, George knew that he could offer something to his customers that no one else could.

MEEZBO, the automated microgreens grower has just launched on Kickstarter

Indoor Microgreens grower

Meezbo is the ultimate smart indoor microgreens grower

Meezbo is an innovative, smart indoor garden with self-watering and lighting systems that will grow fresh microgreens all year round only at a touch of a button

LIVERPOOL, UNITED KINGDOM, March 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — -Innovative, smart indoor garden with self-watering and lighting systems
-Fresh, tasty and healthy microgreens for your daily meals, year-round
-Designed to fit anywhere in your home or office, comes in 2 sizes
-Made from sustainable, eco-friendly components

MEEZBO Ltd announces the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to promote an innovative microgreens grower that meets the global megatrends of health and urbanization. The Meezbo microgreens grower is aimed specifically at people with a healthy, sustainable lifestyle, as well as businesses (culinary industries, retail centers, hospitality facilities…).

Innovation, sustainability and aesthetics
Meezbo is a smart, app-controlled micro-garden which uses 100% non-toxic fibre mats as a growing medium instead of the classic soil growing. The founders of Meezbo recognize their responsibility to protect the environment and this is what drove the use of only sustainable materials for building the product, having aluminium tubes, wooden trays and BPA free plastic plates as the main components. The product uses automated and software controlled LED lights and watering systems that allow consumers to enjoy a large variety of fresh microgreens all year-round, with zero-effort.

“When we started designing Meezbo, this is the experience we had in mind:
Providing our users with an elegant piece of decor that they’ll be proud to install in their homes and which will effortlessly provide them with fresh nutritious microgreens to enjoy in their favourite recipes.” Stefan Besnea, engineer, CEO and co-founder of Meezbo Ltd.

Meeting the consumers’ needs: the advent of microgreens and “grow your own” movement
Since the coronavirus outbreak in early 2020, consumers who were confined to their private sphere started looking more into DIY and indoor gardening products. As a result, the need for locally grown superfoods without harmful substances and a smart indoor garden that is easy-to-use and delivers fresh greens all year-round becomes ever more essential.

That’s why the Meezbo team imagined an innovative stylish grower for fresh microgreens. With aromatic flavour and high concentration of nutrients (they can contain up to 40 times more essential nutrients compared to their mature counterparts), microgreens are loaded in vitamins and make a great addition to any healthy diet and lifestyle. Originally reserved to chefs, microgreens are becoming ever more popular amongst the urban population in search of adding color and flavor to their meals.

“Imagine coming home to this stylish grower stashed with fresh microgreens. Now imagine opening the Meezbo mobile app and picking a delicious recipe from the list we carefully set up for you. Once you’ve finished preparing your meal, you’ll only need to harvest and sprinkle your microgreens on top. What an easy way to kick up your meals with fresh nutritious greens!” Mihail Vieru, engineer,CTO and co-founder of Meezbo Ltd.

Kickstarter campaign launching on March 31st
Meezbo Ltd aims for growth in selected markets in Europe, North America, Asia and Middle East. To facilitate this, a crowdfunding campaign for £30.000 has launched today. Future clients will be able to choose from a range of rewards, the lowest stake (£10) offering a unique opportunity to plant a tree in a location of their choice. Super Early Bird packages will be offered with up to 32% discount compared to predicted retail price and will be limited to 25 pieces for each selected size. Early Bird growers are offered with over 25% discount and limited to 75 pieces per size. Each level of reward will include the selected grower and a full growing kit.

Michigan: How Some Vigilant Gardeners Get Twice as Many Annual Flowers, Because They Know What to Look For!

What you need to know before you buying your annuals–buyer's alert.

DETROIT, MI, UNITED STATES, March 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How Many Flowers Are in A Flat of Annuals?
Now that spring has arrived, and Michigan gardeners start to prepare their flower beds for summer gardening, this is an important question they should be asking themselves when mapping their gardens and calculating the amount of flower flats to purchase each year.

The typical gardener is unaware of the numerous flower flats and tray sizes being sold by garden centers, big box stores, Detroit Eastern Market, and greenhouses all over Michigan. Finding the best flower deal can be achieved by double checking your flats plant count. Find more info here.

Flat Size Remained the Same–
Since the beginning of the 1980's, the standard nursery flower's tray size has remained relatively the same size. So the average consumer psychologically feels they are getting a similar amount of bedding plants as in previous years.

Plant Count Has Reduced, Buyer's Beware–
But, the actual number of plants in the flats have reduced. Often the consumer does not discover the reduction until after they have planted all the flowers and have mysteriously come up short–then must return to the nursery to purchase more plants. The plant count has slowly decreased down from 48 plants to: 36, 18, 12 etc.. The good news is, some greenhouse growers still grow a 48-plant count flat. You simply need to check the flat plant capacity before you buy–the easiest way is to count the cells up & across then multiply to get the total number of flowers in the flat. (EMFBG Infographic)

Container Sizes Adds Confusion–
Eighteen squares or three cells? This can be a little confusing at times because of the large variety of different flats, cells, pots sizes that have flooded the market. The larger cells where designed to grow larger plants with a more established root system. But, this has introduced even more confusion because in some cases, the plants being sold are not actually developed enough to fill the larger cell size. So you, the consumer is paying for extra dirt and a lager pot size.

There are multiple methods Michigan gardeners are utilizing to become more aware of changing flower market trends, and how these general horticultural industry market changes impact their gardening habits. (Learn more here)

FYI–
What is a flat? The black plastic tray–they can hold different numbers of plants.
What is a tray? A group of cells–some flats hold 1, 3, 4, and 6 plants to a tray.
What is a cell? A single unit in a tray.

Top NYC Influencer, Elma Beganovich, discusses influencer marketing strategies on podcast episode

Influencer marketing – growing a brand in a digital society and what you need to know when forming partnerships.

Essentially, now, anybody can, kind of get into the game in terms of to be seen by millions of people if you're savvy enough to use the technology available.”

— Elma Beganovich, co-founder of Amra & Elma

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, March 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the latest episode of the EventBuzz podcast, created by Purplepass for event professionals, we had the privilege of speaking with one of New York City’s top lifestyle influencers.

Elma Beganovich joined the show to talk about her influencer experience, how she made it to the top and turned her influential power into a successful marketing agency. Her current business, A&E, was started with her sister Amra Beganovich, building a digital marketing empire together. Throughout the show, Beganovich gave insights into what it takes to become an influencer, the power of influencer marketing and why brands’ should consider these partnerships.

“People are spending more time online on their mobiles…that shifted the dynamics from physical location because of the lockdowns as well” says Beganovich. “In terms of promotion and marketing, it’s been a very, very, abrupt change…social media is developing technologies, anywhere from Instagram swipe ups to tracking ROI, traffic, IGTV, Instagram Live. Instagram has become essential for shopping as well…”.

Influencer marketing is predicted to grow to be worth $13.8 billion this year, with 75% of brands having a dedicated budget for influencers in 2021 according to InfluencerMarketingHub.com.

Beganovich suggests that brands do their research and consider professional support as budgeting for partnerships can quickly become complex and confusing is you're not familiar with influencer rates.

“You really have to know the influencer market. I mean, now it’s become so vast, so you know, if you’re within the beauty industry, really roll up your sleeves and understand who is in that space.” Beganovich also refers to this as the epicenter of influence. According to the marketing agency, it’s crucial that brand’s identify the epicenter fo influence. Someone within a brand’s niche that is labeled as a trend-setter, closely watched by large numbers of people online. A person that possibly holds the right preferences and behaviors that can make or break your business.

– Tips for influencers during the pandemic

“The way to win your followers’ attention is also to be relatable, meaning, that they can see themselves doing what you’re doing” says Beganovich. The pandemic has shifted how business function and services they offer. This shift also included influencers and their brands.

“Basically the stay at home economy shifted to you know, workout videos, shifted to cooking, even gardening” says Beganovich. Meaning, the key to building good content is to stay relevant with the trends. If your specialty was travel vlogs and adventure accounts, this is not relevant at the moment with current stay-at-home orders. Instead, travel lifestyle accounts had to change up their content to be more relevant with the state of things. This might have included small excursions in a local area, mental health tips, or posts at home.

For more insights on influencer marketing, what it takes to be an influencer and what it takes to work with one, you can listen to the entire interview here. Or search for the EventBuzz podcast on your favorite streaming platform like Spotify or Pandora.

– About Purplepass

Founded in 2008, Purplepass is an all-in-one event management hub for anything from large festivals to small gatherings and live streams. Their parent company created and operated the largest social media network for EDM/Dance Music in North America. Through the ties and relationships created, Purplepass was born out of necessity. There were no complete ticketing solutions for large single-day and multi-day festivals that covered everything from online presale, marketing analysis, pre-printed material (wristbands, ticket stock, parking stubs), volunteer management, 24/7 support, etc. Online resources lacked an easy-to-use box office for ticket sales and admittance support for tens of thousands of guests.

It was from this need that Purplepass was born. Since 2008, they have fulfilled those needs and continue to set a higher standard on what event organizers should expect from their ticketing provider.

NY Fertilizer Company Releases 100% Organic Plant Food That Saves Environment

Getting ready for spring means it’s a busy gardening time. As gardeners are getting ready, they are looking for this organic fertilizer.

PIERMONT, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, March 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Getting ready for spring means it’s a busy gardening time.

After a long cold winter, many gardeners are ready to arrange plants, take out some weeds, put mulch, among other tasks to do this spring which you can find more spring gardening tips.

They are also getting ready to apply fertilizers as a source of nutrients during the growing season. If vegetables and herbs were planted last year, those took a lot of nutrients from the soil and the soil may need more fertilizer this time.

Because most soils lack essential nutrients for plant growth, plants need to be fertilized. Even if the soil is naturally full of nutrients, it becomes less fertile as more plants grow on it over time. By fertilizing the garden, it increases the chance to the nutrients the plants require and be able to flourish in time for picking.

Organic and synthetic fertilizers are the two most common types of fertilizers and will help make the soil more fertile and friendly for plant growth. Most synthetic fertilizers contain these three macronutrients: nitrate, phosphorus, and potassium. These nutrients let plants grow quickly. Nevertheless, these conceal hidden dangers if not applied well.

What are the environmental issues of synthetic fertilizers?

Synthetic fertilizers can stimulate and improve your soil's fertility quickly but can do little to improve the texture of your soil. Because synthetic fertilizers promote fast growth at the expense of healthy plants, food crops produced using chemical fertilizers are likely to have a lower nutritional value than they should be.

Typical fertilizers provide little nourishment for plants, but they might be lacking calcium, zinc, and iron, which are also equally as important for the health and well-being of plants. If there are too many synthetic fertilizers in the soil, there can be dire environmental consequences.

1. Suffocating weed growth and algae blooms

Runoff from synthetic fertilizers grows aquatic plants in a body of water. Even small amounts of a nutrient can increase the growth of aquatic plants that can take all the oxygen in the water, suffocating fish and other aquatic life.

2. High levels of nitrates

Humans and livestock can be adversely affected by high levels of nitrates. Nitrates don't absorb well into soil, so they migrate to groundwater and end up in plants and greens. Nitrate poisoning causes oxygen deprivation in the circulatory system and can harm all humans and animals.

3. Excessive air pollution

Gas emissions from excessive amounts of fertilizers lead to an increased amount of air pollution, contributing to greenhouse gases. The runoff of ammonia from fertilized land can damage ecosystems and vegetation and produce acid rain.

How do synthetic fertilizers affect humans?

Scientists have known for a long time that chemical fertilizers can increase many health risks for humans and livestock. Research by the University of Wisconsin found that traditional chemical fertilizers and pesticides can compromise the nervous, endocrine, and immune systems.

Nitrate poisoning causes methemoglobinemia or the blue-baby syndrome in both humans and animals. Baby formula containing nitrates could cause a baby to turn blue, resulting in coma or death. Researchers believe this form of toxicity results from contaminated well water.

Using organic fertilizers in the spring

Starting with good soil is the best way to grow healthy plants. It is best to feed your plants organic fertilizers and compost to ensure the long-term health of your garden.

Organic fertilizers are typically applied in granular form and slowly dissolve into the soil. This means that they don’t have to apply them as often as they use synthetic fertilizers. These natural fertilizers don’t leach into waterways and pollute the water as do many synthetic fertilizers.

Plus, they don’t need to apply as often. This will result in soil rich in organic matter and healthy nutrients not just for their plants but for the environment and their family.

If they’re looking for the best way to feed their plants without relying on soil, foliar feeding can help their plants the best. The leaf surface absorbs nutrients eight to twenty times more efficiently than its roots.

The remaining homegrown pickles that started the challenge

Folk rock duo turns their creative energies to growing food for a family of four during pandemic and is documenting it on YouTube.

I was not very optimistic about this project. But we kept going because we literally had nowhere to go and nothing to do during quarantine and it was fun to be creating together.”

— Don McCollister

ROSWELL, GA, USA, March 4, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Folk rock duo The Ormewoods, Don McCollister and Claire Pearson, kicked off the 2020 music festival season last March by headlining a show in Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta. Little did they know when they left the stage, that their first gig of the year would also be their last for more than a year. And they definitely could not have predicted that in one year's time, they would be documenting on YouTube their attempt to grow food for a family of 4.

Claire owns two market delis in downtown Atlanta and began to experience first hand food shortages and supply chain issues. "There were a few months in the beginning of the pandemic where it was really scary. My business partner and I were able to order toilet paper when no one else could get it so we started sending a free roll with every delivery order" says Pearson. "It made Don and me think about the possibility of food shortages both personally and for the store which led to the idea of growing our own."

The Ormewoods had recently moved to the Atlanta suburbs and were sitting on almost an acre of land – a huge difference from their former city lot in Southeast Atlanta where they had grown vegetables for fun in a small bed and containers. Don, a two time Grammy winning audio engineer and music producer, also happens to be a woodworker, and he got to work building raised beds and designing an irrigation system.

"Until I met Claire, I killed anything and everything I ever tried to grow. I was hopeful Claire could carry us but soon after we got two beds full of tomatoes, she confused our homemade sanitizer bottle for our organic fertilizer and sprayed bleach on every plant killing everything. We call it the bleach massacre. So it's safe to say, I was not very optimistic about this project. But we kept going because we literally had nowhere to go and nothing to do during quarantine," says McCollister. "And it was fun."

Despite the slow start, they got a bumper crop of cucumbers and started making pickles. "We had to learn how to can because we could not possibly eat all those cucumbers. We decided that we probably had enough to last us a year – which we did. We are still eating last summer's pickles," says Pearson.

The couple originally thought they would eat what they grew as they harvested it but their little garden outperformed their wildest expectations. Not wanting the food to go to waste, they challenged themselves to preserve it with the hope that they might be able to have fresh veggies for a whole year. Their stock is running low but in addition to pickles they still have some homemade tomato sauce, oregano, rosemary oil, jalapenos and pickled beets just in time to be replaced by this year's growing season crops. With these successes also came failures. All of their cantaloupe were eaten by pests, the corn never got full size, carrots were woody and blueberries were all eaten by birds.

The pair was learning a lot watching YouTube videos. When 2021 came around, and gigs were still not looking possible, they decided that documenting their journey to grow food for a year, the second time, was a way to stay connected to their fan base and work together creatively. They also realized that there aren't a lot of people on YouTube like them doing this and maybe there was a need for this content.

"We have so many favorite channels but none of them are really like us. The people we watch are farmers, homesteaders and home schoolers with big families. A lot of them have grown up living on the land or had the dream to. That's not our story. We grew up in the suburbs, me in Dunwoody and Claire outside of Jacksonville, FL, with zero gardening experience. In fact, when we moved up here, Claire did NOT want a yard because of the upkeep," says McCollister. "So for us to show our learning journey, our successes and failures in an urban setting starting from scratch, might really inspire other people like us who want to do this on a smaller scale than what you currently see but don't know how. "

Shoulder Injuries are Common, and Pradeep Balasubramanian Discusses Them in Depth

ADELAIDE, SOUTH AUSTRALIA, AUSTRALIA, March 3, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Shoulder injuries are some of the most common injuries amongst athletes. Often, they are caused by repetitive overhead activities. Swimmers, tennis players, and baseball pitchers amongst other athletes, may suffer from such injuries. Pradeep Balasubramanian, Dubai, explores some of the most common injuries of the shoulder and how to prevent them.

According to Pradeep Balasubramanian Dubai, a shoulder, elbow, and hand surgeon in the United Arab Emirates, overhead athletes are most prone to shoulder injuries. These include ligament sprains, muscle strains, ligament, and capsular tears, cartilage damage, and rotator cuff problems.

Many people tend to ignore shoulder pain. However, when the pain becomes constant, the shoulder joint function becomes limited or when weakness develops in the shoulder, it is vital to seek medical help. Pradeep Balasubramanian identifies that these problems may get worse if not treated in time.

Pradeep Balasubramanian Dubai explains that there are many components to the shoulder ball and socket joint. In addition to the humerus (ball) and glenoid (socket), there are also the rotator cuff tendons, the deltoid muscle, bursae around the shoulder, the acromion, and the long head of the biceps tendon.

Depending on the damage, Pradeep Balasubramanian explains that surgery may be necessary to re-attach the muscles, tendons, cartilage, or ligaments or even resect bone. Surgery may address either one or multiple issues at the same time.

Failure to address a shoulder injury can result in further tearing of the muscles and/or tendons. It may even result in long-term dysfunction of the shoulder and arm. In some instances, the muscles may atrophy, and one may never gain full use of the shoulder and arm again.

Pradeep Balasubramanian Dubai is also quick to identify that not all shoulder injuries are caused by playing sports. Athletes may be among the top sufferers, but anyone can injure their shoulders. Performing simple activities like painting a wall, gardening, or hanging curtains can result in a shoulder injury.

Anyone who suspects they may have a shoulder injury should seek medical attention. Pradeep Balasubramanian explains that a physical exam should always be carried out to discover the origin of pain. Various diagnostic tests may then be undertaken to fully gauge the extent of the damage.

After spending over a decade with athletes who have suffered from shoulder injuries, Pradeep Balasubramanian Dubai has seen it all. He understands how the shoulder joint works and what the underlying injuries might be. He recommends performing stretches before extensive overhead activity. He also reminds people to pay attention to the warning signs of an underlying injury.
