Scientologists Celebrate 50 Years in Europe’s ‘Gateway to the World’

HAMBURG, Germany -- In 1970, a student from the University of Hamburg traveled to Canada, where she learned of the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health by L. Ron Hubbard. Returning to the city, she shared it with friends, and they set up a study group in one of their homes to learn about Dianetics and other Scientology books. This led to the establishment of the Church of Scientology in Hamburg.

In 1973, three years after this study group began, Hamburg Scientologists founded the first Church of Scientology Mission in the city. The Mission grew to a Church of Scientology, and the Ideal Church of Scientology of Hamburg was dedicated in January 2012.

Known as "The Gateway to the World," Hamburg is the largest seaport in Germany and an important link for trade between Central and Eastern Europe. It is also the second most populous city in the country, after Berlin.

Scientologists, distinguished guests and friends gathered at the Church at Domstraße 9 in the heart of Hamburg to celebrate this golden anniversary.

Scientologists reflected on what they have accomplished over the past 50 years, and they set their sights on the future, not only for the religion but for the city.

Their first half-century in Hamburg was not without challenges. The history of all new religions is marked by controversy and intolerance and Scientology was no exception. Scientologists had to overcome ignorance, confused and false ideas about their beliefs and practices, and outright bigotry. But they prevailed. The Church continued to grow, provide services to its congregation and the community, and worked with other German Scientologists to achieve religious recognition in Hamburg and throughout Germany.

Scores of German judicial decisions affirm the rights of the Church of Scientology and its members to the protections of freedom of religion and belief as granted in Article 4 of the German Constitution. A summary of key decisions can be viewed on the Scientology Religious Freedom website.

Scientology comprises a body of knowledge that extends from certain fundamental truths. Prime among these are:

Man is an immortal spiritual being.

His experience extends well beyond a single lifetime.

His capabilities are unlimited, even if not presently realized.

Scientologists are committed to achieving the Aims of Scientology as envisioned by Founder L. Ron Hubbard: "A civilization without insanity, without criminals and without war, where the able can prosper and honest beings can have rights, and where Man is free to rise to greater heights."

Hamburg Scientologists extend their help through humanitarian initiatives and social betterment programs to better the lives of others and ensure a brighter future for all:

* United for Human Rights promotes respect and raises awareness of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to protect and secure the rights and freedoms to which everyone is entitled.

* The Truth About Drugs education and prevention initiative educates youth about the dangers of the most commonly abused drugs so they can make a firm commitment to live drug-free.

* The Way to Happiness Foundation promotes a common-sense moral code that helps individuals make positive decisions or choices to better the quality of their own lives and the lives of others.

* Citizens Commission on Human Rights is a mental health watchdog that exposes psychiatric abuses of human rights and protects individuals from abusive or coercive practices in the field of mental health.

* The Volunteer Ministers program is a religious social service developed by Mr. Hubbard in 1973 and sponsored by the Church of Scientology International. Volunteer Ministers serve in times of disaster great and small, whether helping a neighbor to repair their marriage or improve conditions at work or providing relief at the site of natural or manmade disasters at home or abroad. Hundreds of thousands of people are trained in the skills of a Volunteer Minister across 185 nations.

The Church of Scientology Hamburg is an Ideal Scientology Organization. Set out in the writings of L. Ron Hubbard and implemented by Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige, Ideal Scientology Organizations are Scientology Churches configured to provide the full services of the Scientology religion to its parishioners and to the community.

High Rates and Low Supply Drag Down Mortgage Volume in MCT October Indices Report

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT®), a leading mortgage hedge advisory and secondary marketing software firm, reported today a significant dip of 13.29% in mortgage lock volume over the prior month.

Following the last month-over-month 4.76% drop, this downward trend in mortgage lock volume is attributed to an increase in mortgage rates throughout the last month to high sixes and low sevens as the primary culprit, and lack of supply and unattractive housing values being secondary reasons. "We are hopeful that we will get some better sentiment from the Fed in either its November or December meeting which would allow for some relief for rates," said Andrew Rhodes, Senior Director, Head of Trading at MCT, "But without that, high-interest rates will continue to be the prevailing force weighing on the market."

Eyes in the coming winter months will be on any shift in CPI and non-farm payroll, two indicators the Fed will look to as it makes its decisions for the rest of the winter and into Q1. "As long as those numbers continue to stay strong or in line with the consensus, I believe the rates are going to stay where they are. If we see a strong shift in either direction for CPI or non-farm payroll, that could mean we will either see an increase in rates or we will get more verbiage on pausing and it being close to terminal." states Mr. Rhodes.

Download the full MCT October Indices Report for further information, including year-over-year charts and data. MCT's Lock Volume Indices present a snapshot of rate lock volume activity in the residential mortgage industry broken out by lock type (purchase, rate/term refinance, and cash out refinance) across a broad diversity of lenders (e.g., sizes, products/services offered, business models) from MCT's national footprint.

FormFree partners with original ‘Shark’ and iconic entrepreneur Kevin Harrington to launch Passport portable financial ID

ATHENS, Ga. -- FormFree® has partnered with serial entrepreneur Kevin Harrington of "Shark Tank" fame to promote Passport®, a free service that makes it easy for consumers to quantify their borrowing power and share their verified assets, employment, annual and residual income and rent payment history with their preferred lender in just minutes from any web-enabled device.

Passport's comprehensive and streamlined approach to verifying borrowers' ability to pay significantly lowers lenders' operational costs, reduces fraud risk and speeds loans along - all while putting borrowers in control of their data and opening up financial inclusivity to the historically underserved.

Harrington's team will support FormFree's October 20 launch of Passport with advisory and marketing services, including the engagement of financial advisors, real estate agents and social media influencers in sharing the service with consumers who are ready to use their credit to achieve financial goals such as consolidating debts or financing the purchase of an automobile or home.

Brent Chandler, founder and CEO of FormFree, pioneered digital asset verification with the 2009 launch of AccountChek®, a service that was used by more than 3,500 mortgage lenders to verify more than $4 trillion in borrower assets before its strategic divestiture to Stewart Information Services Corporation (NYSE: STC) subsidiary Informative Research in March 2023. With the consumer debut of Passport, Chandler aims to transform the lending industry once again with technology that leapfrogs current financing barriers.

"Kevin [Harrington] is a masterful communicator. Together we're reshaping credit access with Passport by giving consumers direct control over their data for the first time," said Chandler. "As we initiate this transformative shift in lending, our focus on low income and minority buyers is unwavering. They are at the heart of this change and stand to reap significant benefits."

"Having to gather and provide dozens of documents just to understand their own borrowing capacity deters countless consumers from applying for financing - and it's a hurdle they have to clear again and again if they want to apply with several lenders and compare offers," added Harrington. "Passport makes it practical for consumers to share their always up-to-date financial data with a marketplace of lenders all at once and consider multiple, competitive offers."

Chandler and Harrington will appear together at the Mortgage Bankers Association Annual Convention and Expo in Philadelphia next week to introduce Passport to mortgage industry participants and preview the FormFree Exchange (FFX), the online marketplace where lenders compete for the business of Passport users.

"This idea is something we've been working on for a while now," said Chandler. "There is already a lot of excitement about how FFX would speed and simplify customer acquisition and help buyers get the best financial products for their needs."

About FormFree®:

FormFree empowers consumers to understand their ability to pay and share it with lenders like never before. Using FormFree's Passport® app, consumers can verify all the core financial data required by loan underwriters - including identity, assets, income, employment credit history and cash-flow data - in seconds. Once consumers are ready to transact, they can anonymously share their verified data on the FormFree Exchange (FFX) and receive immediate offers from a marketplace of lenders who fully understand their ability to pay, residual income and eligibility for down payment assistance and inclusive lending programs.

For more information, visit or follow FormFree on LinkedIn.

About Kevin Harrington:

Harrington is world renowned as the inventor of the infomercial, pioneer of the "As Seen on TV" brand and one of the original "sharks" on the hit ABC show "Shark Tank." He has launched more than 20 businesses that have each grown sales in excess of $100 million as part of a career that has introduced 1,000+ products generating over $6 billion in global sales. His business experience spans the globe, including opening distribution outlets in over 100 countries.

Gains and Challenges Seen in New Study of U.S. Postdoc Programs

ROCKVILLE, Md. -- A new report released today from the National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) published in partnership with Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society, highlights both progress over the last decade in institutional support for postdoctoral fellows ("postdocs") as well as significant areas requiring attention. The report, Pressing Forward in Supporting Postdocs: 2023 National Postdoctoral Association Institutional Policy Report, makes specific recommendations to institutions hosting the nation's 72,000 postdocs.

"The NPA Institutional Policy Report is invaluable in showing how far we have come in supporting postdoctoral scholars, in helping us dig deeper into the issues that impact scholars and our offices, and in advocating for greater support for the scholars that are working hard to change the world," commented Sofie R. Kleppner, Ph.D., associate vice provost and associate dean, Stanford University.

The new release provides four critical recommendations for improving the postdoctoral environment: pay postdocs a competitive wage with comprehensive benefits; provide proper institutional support for postdoc offices and associations; collect data on postdoc demographics and outcomes; and provide a postdoc handbook transparently outlining institutional policies.

"This report provides clear direction for any institution with a postdoc program," commented Thomas P. Kimbis, J.D., executive director and chief executive officer of the NPA. "The data tell a tale of hard work and major successes in some areas- and the need to redouble efforts in others."

With data collected from more than 100 institutions, the NPA looked at key factors of postdoctoral programs, including policies, benefits, and training programs. With longitudinal data covering a span of nine years, originating with the first such report in 2014, this report provides a unique data set identifying specific areas of strength and weakness aggregated across U.S. postdoctoral policies and practices.

For the first time, the survey also collected information on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts at institutions, with support from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. In regard to the total number of postdocs in the U.S., the data did not show any indication of a decrease over the last three years, although there has been a decline when looking across the last decade.

"This data gives us critical insight into key areas of need when it comes to institutional support and fair pay for postdoctoral scholars," said Jamie Vernon, Sigma Xi executive director and chief executive officer. "The inclusion of DEI information in this year's report represents a key area of importance for both Sigma Xi and the NPA and can produce a valuable barometer for institutions."

The report is tied to the NPA Recommendations for Postdoc Policies and Practices, which provides comprehensive guidelines for institutions hosting postdocs. A new version of the recommendations is scheduled to be released in 2024, providing additional direction to institutions seeking to improve their postdoctoral environments.

Pressing Forward in Supporting Postdocs is being released in conjunction with the September/October issue of Sigma Xi's publication, American Scientist, and is also available online at the Sigma Xi and NPA websites. The report is the fourth in a series of triennial reports on this topic. Past reports and aggregate survey data are available to NPA members online.

About National Postdoctoral Association:

The National Postdoctoral Association (NPA) is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) educational association headquartered in Rockville, MD. Founded in 2003, the NPA envisions an inclusive community where all postdocs are empowered, valued, recognized, and supported in their current and future endeavors. The NPA serves the entire postdoctoral community, including its 20,000 individual and 230 organizational members.

The Rich Culture of South Africa Celebrated at Scientology Headquarters

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- The Church of Scientology hosted officials, religious and community leaders, and other stakeholders for a Heritage Day celebration at Castle Kyalami, Church of Scientology headquarters for Africa.

The beloved Rev. Desmond Tutu was the first to call South Africa the Rainbow Nation. The name not only celebrates what makes the country unique, it is also what makes it strong: people of all colors, backgrounds, and religions, speaking 12 official languages, working together to achieve common goals.

In his newsletter on the eve of Heritage Day, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa urged all South Africans to honor "the commitment of leaders like Prince Buthelezi and President Nelson Mandela to put aside their differences and work for peace," and that maintaining peace and advancing reconciliation is the country's "collective responsibility" and "the greatest gift we can bestow on the generations to come."

It was in this spirit that hundreds, attending the Heritage Day event at Castle Kyalami, dressed in traditional attire, raised their voices in song, and danced in a joyous salute to the cultural wealth of the nation.

Heritage Day fosters unity and reminds everyone what it really means to be a South African, said Scientology spokesperson Sandile Hlayisi. "This is one of those days where you really appreciate being South African. The whole community gathered to share in each other's heritage."

"It was truly a beautiful day," said an executive of the South African National Taxi Council. "The unity that exists at the Castle and their ability to bring everyone together is astonishing. It is a proud moment to see everyone embracing their culture and displaying the cultural wealth of our country."

An SABC reporter found it heartwarming to see people "immerse themselves in unity."

The afternoon included a braai, traditional African markets, and a Heritage Day Sunday service emphasizing religious unity.

Castle Kyalami is a religious retreat for Scientologists from across the African continent. Home not only to the Church of Scientology but to the community, it realizes the vision of Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard that all Churches of Scientology should provide not only the ideal facilities to service Scientologists in their ascent to higher states of spiritual freedom, but to also serve as a home for the entire community and a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift people of all denominations.

The Church shares its many humanitarian and community outreach programs with people of all faiths and backgrounds in its commitment to creating a better Africa and a better world.

Mr. David Miscavige, ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion, dedicated Castle Kyalami on New Year's Day 2019, reaffirming the vision of Mr. Hubbard that "from Southern Africa will spring the next great civilization on this planet."

Scientology Publishing House Recognized as a ‘Good Corporate Citizen’

COMMERCE, Calif. -- In its annual review of corporate environmental standards, Los Angeles County Sanitation Districts recognized Bridge Publications, publisher of the nonfiction works of Scientology Founder and bestselling author L. Ron Hubbard, as a "good corporate citizen" for the sixth year running. Bridge Publications Inc. achieved this acknowledgment through its compliance with wastewater discharge limits and its maintenance of environmental equipment.

Environmental responsibility was incorporated into the planning and establishment of the Bridge Publications manufacturing plant, with wastewater minimization only one of its components.

To preserve Scientology religious scriptures, an Archival Project, established at Bridge Publications, uses metal plating on copper and etching on stainless steel to safeguard Mr. Hubbard's recorded lectures with corrosion-resistant metal long plays. These processes produce wastewater containing chemicals and metal. Through special treatment that removes these hazardous contaminants from the water, Bridge maintains 100 percent compliance with environmental standards. But this is only one of the ways Bridge reduces its environmental footprint.

One of the world's first all-digital on-demand publishing and manufacturing facilities, Bridge Publications incorporated care for the environment in every facet of its establishment.

With hundreds of different paper types and sizes used in most printing facilities, even the best of them discard as much as 25 percent of their paper, wasting ink in the process. Bridge was designed to minimize paper use, leaving very little trim waste on the edges and between the pages of its printed materials. By maximizing efficiency through the very design of the plant, Bridge consistently reduces paper waste from 25 percent to 5 percent, which they recycle.

"We are very proud to receive this recognition," says Lucia Winther, Public Relations Director at Bridge Publications. "We not only promote environmental responsibility and sustainability in our manufacturing practices, we also work with community partners and leaders to raise awareness of its importance and carry out community cleanups. This is in keeping with The Way to Happiness, one of the books of Mr. Hubbard that we publish. A common-sense guide to better living, the book includes the precept 'Safeguard and Improve Your Environment,' which is a guiding principle for our organization."

Bridge Publications is an award-winning facility at the cutting edge of technology, designed from the ground up with the sole purpose of fulfilling the ever-increasing demand for Scientology Scripture at a moment's notice.

In launching the Scientology Network in 2018, Scientology ecclesiastical leader Mr. David Miscavige promised to take viewers "behind the scenes and into our Church management, publication and dissemination facilities, humanitarian outreach centers and programs, and even into our new millennium Scientology archives."

That is exactly what the network does in an episode of Inside Scientology on Bridge Publications. Watch Inside Bridge Publications on the Scientology Network on DIRECTV Channel 320, DIRECTV STREAM or AT&T U-verse. It also streams at, on mobile apps, and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.

Modern Foot & Ankle Celebrates Grand Reopening of Clinic, Welcomes New Podiatrist

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Following extensive renovations, Central Florida podiatric group Modern Foot & Ankle is set to reopen its Orlando clinic next week-and with a new podiatrist to boot.

Located in the Kirkman area at 5690 Windhover Drive, the office recently underwent a two-month overhaul to modernize the space. The updates include new countertops and cabinetry and an enlarged X-ray alcove.

Taking over the clinic's reins is Jalpen Patel, DPM, a longtime Orlando-area practitioner.

"I have practiced in Orlando for the past six years, and I am excited to continue serving the community I have been a part of," said Dr. Patel. "My new clinic in Kirkman is centrally located and close to popular tourist destinations, which makes it easy for patients to find and access the care they need."

Dr. Patel is skilled in all aspects of foot and ankle care with a special interest in minimally-invasive procedures, trauma, diabetic limb salvage and wound care, and bunion and hammertoe correction. Yet he believes his strongest asset is his patient-centered focus.

"For me, empathy and strong communication skills are two of the most important qualities a physician possesses," explained Dr. Patel. "Empathy allows me to understand my patients' experiences, emotions, and concerns on a deeper level, which is essential for creating an environment where patients feel comfortable and trust my treatment plan.

"Communication skills are equally vital," he continued, "as they enable me to effectively convey complex medical information in a way that is easy to understand."

After completing his education and surgical residency in New Jersey and New York, Dr. Patel moved to Florida for the sunshine and population diversity. He decided to join Modern Foot & Ankle because he believes the group's core values and mission create a strong foundation for delivering comprehensive and personalized care.

"This practice allows me to provide the highest level of care with the help of the advanced technology utilized in the office," he said. "I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead, including the group's involvement in continuous learning, and I hope to contribute to its success."

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Patel, visit or call 1-844-MODERN9.
