Homebuilding Veteran Mitchell Bradford Joins Diversified Pacific

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif. -- Real estate veteran Mitchell Bradford has joined the talented team at Diversified Pacific. His 35 years of experience and leadership in the industry as a homebuilder and multi-family investor/owner will play a key role in the company as it seeks to grow and expand its reach and focus.

"I've known the co-founders of Diversified since its inception in 1991 and now have the opportunity to join the company and partner in its growth and further expansion," Bradford stated. "It's an organization that I know and trust. A team of talented people led by my longtime friends Jeff Burum and Matt Jordan, the co-managing members of Diversified. We share the same vision and core values. We believe that integrity, trust and valued relationships are key components to our success as we grow the company."

Bradford has served in leadership roles with major homebuilding companies including Kaufman & Broad, Ryland, William Lyon Homes and John Laing Homes. He has purchased and sold more than $2 billion of real estate throughout his career. Also skilled at land planning and political advocacy, he has entitled nearly 6,000 residential lots. He holds the distinction of never purchasing an asset that failed to return profits to investors/partners.

During the global economic crisis of 2008, he began forming partnerships to acquire troubled and undervalued properties throughout California, Nevada and Arizona. As of 2020, Bradford successfully completed the development of more than 140 single family homes, townhomes and condos and the acquisition, renovation and disposition of more than 1,700 apartments. Much of the role he will serve working with Diversified is contributing to the expansion of their land entitlement activities and the growth of their multi-family development and acquisitions.

Bradford strongly believes in servant leadership and has served the building industry in many capacities during his career, including president of the Building Industry Association (BIA) Orange County Chapter in 2005 and president of BIA of Southern California in 2008.

Bradford is equally committed to his faith and family. He is an elder emeritus at Mariners Church in Irvine, CA and is a past board member of PureHope, a faith based non-profit organization located in Dallas, Texas. He resides in Newport Beach, CA with his wife and daughter, with his son currently attending Arizona State University, where Mitchell graduated with a BS in Business Management in 1982.

"I am very pleased to have my friend Mitchell join the family at Diversified Pacific," said Jeff Burum, Founder and CEO of Diversified Pacific. "I've known him for more than 30 years and am well aware of the successes he has achieved in the industry. He is driven, he is loyal and he is a winner. We look forward to his involvement in our future growth and success."

About Diversified Pacific:

For more than 33 years the company has built homes in Southern California - targeting a wide variety of buyers while offering a diversity of product types and designs. Diversified's expertise encompasses land acquisitions, entitlements, land development and homebuilding.

Recognizing the transition of the majority of Southern California's new housing from suburban to urban densities, Diversified has expanded its investment and development focus to include the acquisition, development and long-term operation of apartment communities throughout Southern California and the western United States.

Toyota Partnership with HANG Media Targets Niche Segments, Generates Wide Audience

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Toyota and HANG, the leading direct-to-consumer fan platform, are deploying innovative media approaches this sports season that are driving audience levels higher than television, with deeper data insights and engagement. To introduce its first-ever Grand Highlander SUV to targeted Black and Indian expat consumers, Toyota and its agencies, Burrell and InterTrend, have leveraged HANG's unique second-screen experiences to power deep engagement across more than 1 million views during the Toyota HBCU NY Classic football game in September, and October's India-Pakistan Cricket World Cup match. They will be teaming up again for the Cricket World Cup Finals on November 19.

HANG virtual activations enable fans across the country and around the world to watch televised games alongside current players, all-time greats, and celebrities, mingling on camera, via text or on livestreams across YouTube, Facebook, and Twitch. Fans stay on platform an astounding average of one hour and twenty minutes, asking questions, hearing inside stories, and getting pro tips.

For the HBCU NY Classic, Howard University graduate and Emmy nominee Anthony Anderson joined the watch party with Morehouse alums Isaac Keys, the actor and former NFL star, and Edwin Moses, the renowned track and field champion, from a Toyota suite at the game, while HBCU legends including NFL Hall of Famer Aeneas Williams beamed in from their homes. The India-Pakistan match featured Indian cricketer Unmukt Chand, who stars in a new Grand Highlander television spot aimed at the Asian-Indian consumer, along with fellow cricketers and Indian entertainers.

"Toyota and HANG are a natural fit," said William Moore, VP/Media Director with Burrell Communications Group. "HANG watch parties create a comfortable space for the whole family to enjoy an amazing experience - just like the first-ever Grand Highlander does. We're thrilled to have hosted an HBCU 'family reunion' for committed alums and students across the country, and to be making millions of Indian expats feel right at home during the Cricket World Cup."

"The entire media industry is desperate to engage audiences directly, and HANG has been ahead of the pack in understanding the power of eliminating the middleman," said Jon Klein, HANG's co-founder and CEO and the former president of CNN. "As humans, we all yearn to connect face to face. So we've been delighted to partner with Toyota to help spread the love."

Author Seval Seer Releases Profound New Book: ‘Om Vel Way: Be Happy and Make Happy’

VICTORIA, B.C. -- Author Seval Seer has unveiled an enlightening book, "Om Vel Way: Be Happy and Make Happy," (IBSN: 978-1779410658; Nov. 2023) which delves deep into the essence of human existence and the pursuit of true happiness. With a focus on the theme "Be Happy and Make Happy," Seval Seer's book offers a powerful and insightful perspective on the human journey.

In "Om Vel Way," Seval Seer introduces a profound concept, with "OM" representing the spirit, "VEL" symbolizing the sport(i.e., life as a sport), and "Way" depicting how the spirit engages in the sport. The book is grounded in the belief that, at our core, we are evolving awareness, transcending our possessions and experiences. Through this awareness, we can lead authentic lives, guided by the three powers of Verity (to be aware of the higher truth), Evolution (to evolve based on this awareness), and Love (the driving force behind our progress).

The book navigates the obstacles that hinder our path to happiness, primarily our ignorance about our true nature. By embracing evolving awareness and shedding the fixed notions of self, the book reveals a transformative journey toward progressive happiness. It emphasizes self-actualization as the key to becoming our true selves and finding refuge and ultimate fulfillment within.

Author Seval Seer has embarked on a remarkable journey of self-discovery, having lived across different continents. His exploration of profound questions about existence and the fundamental drivers of life culminated in the development of the mental framework presented in "Om Vel Way." This framework seamlessly blends ancient wisdom with modern psychology, offering readers a powerful tool to unlock happiness and authenticity in their lives.

"Om Vel Way: Be Happy and Make Happy" is a thought-provoking masterpiece that guides readers toward a deeper understanding of their true selves and the pursuit of happiness, not only for themselves but also for those around them.

Cosmetic Dermatology Practice Opens State-of-the-Art Facility in Northern Kentucky.

FLORENCE, Ky. -- Derm Aesthetics of Northern Kentucky, a cosmetic dermatology practice, just cut the ribbon on its state-of-the art facility aimed at serving the people of Northern Kentucky and the Greater Cincinnati area. The practice offers the latest, most advanced non- to minimally invasive aesthetic treatments available.

This new facility, located at 8275 Ewing Blvd in Florence, is the brainchild of board-certified dermatologist and aesthetic physician Susan Bushelman, M.D., F.A.A.D. She is proud to be a long-time partner of Dermatology Associates of Northern KY, recently named Best Dermatology Practice in Northern KY. Derm Aesthetics extends this same high standard to an expanded menu of cosmetic services.

Throughout her career of treating patients for a myriad of medical dermatological needs, Dr. Bushelman began to realize that there was a growing need for more professional cosmetic treatment options such as neurotoxin injections, laser treatments, and other non-surgical options to address the visible signs of aging and other skin concerns. As demand for these services increased, Dr. Bushelman developed a dream of opening her own practice to meet that demand.

"We realized we could make this bigger and serve patients better, but we needed more space to do it," Dr. Bushelman explained. "I wanted to provide a clinical cosmetic dermatology space to serve my growing number of aesthetics patients. When I came across the amazing space on Ewing Blvd, I knew it was the perfect place to house that dream."

Dr. Bushelman says she's very excited to provide treatments that help boost confidence and improve quality of lives overall, but she wants people to realize that, in most cases, there's no one-and-done solution to address a patient's concerns.

"I like to explain to my patients that aesthetics is a journey. There's not just one thing that we're going to do that's going to give you immediate optimal results," she said. "It's an ongoing process. That process and journey begins at Derm Aesthetics."

Dr. Bushelman went on to say she's still proudly affiliated with Dermatology Associates for the more medical side of her practice but providing more options for popular medical aesthetic treatments is something she specifically wanted for the people of this area.

"Whether it's wrinkle reducers, dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser skin-resurfacing, or any of the other beautiful options we have available, I want to help you choose what best aligns with your individual goals of looking years younger, or even just a bit more refreshed," she said.

Susan Bushelman M.D., F.A.A.D., is board-certified in Dermatology and also completed a residency in Internal Medicine. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, a member of American Society of Dermatological Surgery and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. She is a member of the American Medical Association, Kentucky Medical Association as well as Past President and long-time Board Member of the Northern KY Medical Society and Northern KY Foundation.

Mortgage Volume Continues Downward Trend in Latest MCT November 2023 Indices Report

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Mortgage Capital Trading, Inc. (MCT®), a leading mortgage hedge advisory and secondary marketing software firm, reported today a drop of 17.76% in mortgage lock volume over the prior month.

Complete the form to download the full report:

Loan originations for October continued to dip as mortgage rates hovered around 8% and lack of housing supply continues to slow origination volume. While overall mortgage lock volume dropped more than 17% in October, cash out refinances did see a boost.

"Cash out refinances jumped more than 11% in October from the previous month," said Andrew Rhodes, Senior Director, Head of Trading at MCT. "However, given that cash out refinances are already at notable lows, I don't believe it to be statistically significant."

This trend is expected to play out through 2023 as the Fed paused rates at their November 1st meeting and indicated the potential for another rate hike before the end of the year.

"Multiple factors such as an 8% mortgage rate, the Fed's continued fight against inflation, and the industry's cyclical winter lull, shows we'll likely continue to see low origination volume heading into the new year," said Mr. Rhodes.

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.

About MCT:

For over two decades, MCT has been a leading source of innovation for the mortgage secondary market. Melding deep subject matter expertise with a passion for emerging technologies and clients, MCT is the de facto leader in innovative mortgage capital markets technology. From architecting modern best execution loan sales to launching the most successful and advanced marketplace for mortgage-related assets, lenders, investors, and network partners all benefit from MCT's stewardship. MCT's technology and know-how continues to revolutionize how mortgage assets are priced, locked, protected, valued, and exchanged - offering clients the tools to thrive under any market condition.

Neotrope and Send2Press expand AI image optimization for its press release distribution services

TEMECULA, Calif. -- Today, Neotrope®, a 40+ year old tech and marketing firm, and Send2Press® Newswire, a 24 year old online newswire service, announce updated use of AI tools for client image optimization, such as upscaling and generative fill to make news images better for social and syndication.

"For the past 24 years we have always helped clients improve their news images for press release dissemination direct-to-editors and online," says CEO and co-founder Christopher Laird Simmons.

"This has sometimes been simple stuff like whitening teeth a little in headshots, or fixing wide angle distortion, where folks on either side of a group image look like Agustus Gloop due to lens distortion. We've been pretty proud of taking this extra step - which nobody else in the newswire business does."

Simmons, an Adobe Photoshop guru since 1993, and professional photographer since a teenager (ahem, in the late 1970s), started using image AI tools like Topaz Gigapixel AI in 2019 to upscale client images; where sometimes an agency could get nothing from their client except a postage stamp image, perhaps from a LinkedIn account or email signature.

Recently adding modern tools like generative fill in Photoshop 2023, and Topaz Photo AI for improved upsampling, has been a huge step forward in correcting the overall image for elements such as missing shoulders, rooms, outdoor sets, chopped off hair, and more.

"Today, our basic web image size for press releases syndicated online and shared to news platforms and social, is an 800x600 pixel rectangle, and 3x4 inch 300 dpi image for media," says Simmons. "When clients have nothing other than a 250x250 pixel headshot, we can now easily upscample the image to usable size, but also use generative fill to add the missing elements for converting a vertical or square image to landscape rectangle. The time saving with AI is just astounding, and our clients are both appreciative and a bit 'freaked out.' It is rather trippy what is now possible."

Simmons concludes, "We like to say our press release newswire is more like a wedding cake business than a burger flipping business. With these updated tools the frosting keeps getting better!"

Basic image correction is free with all of Send2Press' PRO press release distribution packages on a non-pre-approval basis. Pre-approval and alternate versioning is available at added cost and delays distribution.

Send2Press, online since 2000*, offers best in class affordable press release distribution and writing. News appears on legitimate news portals, APnews website, AP syndication, AP newsrooms, social media and high visibility on Google News and other news channels and data platforms.

Send2Press, a service of Neotrope, was ranked best overall of the top 6 newswire services by Fit Small Business in 2020. Parent, Neotrope, was an Inc. 5000 listed company in 2009.

Neotrope®, a marketing, entertainment, and technology company, launched in 1983 by Christopher Laird Simmons and the late Dr. JL Simmons, is celebrating its 41st anniversary in Jan. 2024.
