Outdoor Movement Series Launches in Mequon, Wisconsin Sept. 20

MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- A pine forest in the heart of a nature preserve in Mequon, Wisconsin will be the site of the first of three conscious dance movement sessions, "The Wisdom of Your Body" series. It is offered by Carrie Branovan, the Milwaukee-born artist-educator who founded "Dance Your Prayers."

"We all remember the joy of dancing like no one is watching," said Branovan. "This 'Wisdom of Your Body' series inspires us to spread our wings and try something new!"

Designed to meet strict social distancing guidelines, the series allows each participant to enjoy abundant space to move. Each session features a 60-minute playlist of organic world beats curated by Branovan and followed by a cool-down, meditation period, and an art project.

Music is listened to using "silent disco technology." This enables participants to dance up to 100 feet from the central DJ table. The event is open to all cultural backgrounds, genders, ages (18+), races, and physical condition regardless of dance experience. If you can move, you can dance.

"Dancing in nature with the trees, wildlife, flowers and sky is a connection that helps us learn how to manage uncertainty of these extraordinary times," said Branovan.

"After conscious-dancing in innovative cities like London, Dublin and the Bay Area in California for more than a decade, I look forward to bringing this healthy practice to my birthplace, Milwaukee."

Branovan notes that "The Wisdom of Your Body" series helps participants learn new ways to enjoy freedom of movement while getting a break from the media and the digital world to be with nature. Participants stretch, dance, play, jump, bend and rest at their own pace.

"The Wisdom of the Body" series meets 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 20 and 27 and October 4, 2020. Exact location is provided after registration. The suggested donation is $5-$20 per session with proceeds going to Ozaukee Washington Land Trust.

ReverseVision Partners with Mortgage Bankers Association to Articulate the Business Case for HECM Lending in September 10 Webinar

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- ReverseVision, the leading Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) and private reverse lending platform, today announced it will co-host a webinar with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) to dispense HECM myths and educate mortgage lenders on the business case for incorporating HECMS into their lending portfolio.

The webinar, "Understanding Reverse Mortgages: Impact on Your Lending Business and Consumers," will take place Thursday, September 10, 2020, from 2 - 3 p.m. ET.

The session will be led by co-panelists Wendy Peel, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ReverseVision, and Carissa Orozco, Director of Business Development, Strategic Partners at ReverseVision. During the session, Peel and Orozco will discuss regulatory changes that have improved the HECM program for borrowers and lenders, how borrowers and lenders benefit from a generational lending strategy and how HECM loans improve lenders' profit margins.

"In our current market, many homeowners aged 62 and older would benefit from a HECM, whether to shield themselves from sequence risk or tap into their home equity wealth. The problem is that most lenders do not offer HECMs because their knowledge of the program is outdated or they do not understand its business value," said Peel. "We have partnered with the MBA to disperse lingering stigma around HECMs and show lenders how the lending program is rewarding to both borrowers and their business."

The webinar is free for MBA members to attend and $299 for nonmembers. Those interested may register at:

C Diff Foundation Hosts 4th Annual Global C. diff. Awareness 2K Virtual Walks

TEANECK, N.J. -- C Diff Foundation announced today that registration is open for the 4th Annual Global C. diff. Awareness 2K Virtual Walks. This year's annual events will take place online and will be recorded at the Morris A. Votee Park, Teaneck, NJ, Charlestown Township Park, Phoenixville, PA, Sims Park, New Port Richey, FL on Saturday, September 12, 2020 from 8 a.m. - 12 p.m. ET. There will also be a superhero virtual show for super kids. Dr. Martha Clokie, Ph.D. will be leading the walk which will be recorded in Leicester, UK on Friday, September 11, 2020.

Registration is $20 per walker and complimentary for children 10 years of age and under. Learn more:

All registered awareness walkers will receive a t-shirt, giveaways, and educational material. Proceeds from the events will benefit the C Diff Foundation's mission educating and advocating for C. difficile infection prevention, treatments, clinical trials, and environmental safety worldwide. During these unprecedented times, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the C Diff Foundation effectively adapts to overcome the many obstacles developing from this global virus.

C. diff. infections are one of the leading healthcare-associated infections facing local communities worldwide. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a Clostridioides difficile infection (C. diff., C. difficile), (formally known as Clostridium difficile) "has become the most common microbial cause of healthcare-associated infections in U.S. hospitals and costs up to $4.8 billion each year in excess health care costs for acute care facilities alone."

Statistics provided by the CDC suggest that C. difficile cause nearly 500,000 infections in patients in the U.S. annually. In one study noted by the CDC, among infected patients, nearly 29,000 died within 30 days of being diagnosed, and more than half of those deaths (15,000) were directly attributable to a C. difficile infection.

"Every day the C Diff Foundation members work to educate and advocate for C. difficile infection prevention, treatments, clinical trials, and environmental safety while providing support worldwide," says Nancy Caralla, Founding President, and Executive Director of the C Diff Foundation. "Our dedication to the cause is making a difference as we share a common goal with government agencies and health care organizations witnessing a decrease in newly diagnosed C.diff. infections and saving lives. Our dedicated volunteering members, around the globe, are focused on improving the lives of individuals and families who are impacted by C. diff. infections."

We sincerely thank Vedanta Biosciences, Inc. for being the Diamond Sponsor of the 4th Annual Global C. diff. Awareness 2K Virtual Walks. Vedanta Biosciences, Inc. is dedicated to finding treatments for patients with serious infections and immune diseases. Vedanta develops medicines made of consortia of bacterial strains which are selected to effect robust and durable changes in a patient's gut microbiota.

In contrast to fecal transplants or administration of fecal fractions, Vedanta's medicines are pure, uniform compositions of bacteria manufactured from clonal cell banks, bypassing the need to rely on direct sourcing of fecal donor material of inconsistent composition. Vedanta is currently enrolling patients with recurrent C. difficile infections (CDI) in its CONSORTIUM study to evaluate VE303, an investigational treatment for CDI.

About the C Diff Foundation:

The C Diff Foundation, a 501(c)(3) supports public health through educating and advocating for C. difficile infection prevention, treatments, clinical trials, and environmental safety worldwide. For more information, or to find out how you can be a host of a Global C.diff. Awareness 2K Walk, visit

Running Of The Bulls Only Sorta Canceled Due To Pandemic – 14th rendition of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans changes format, again

NEW ORLEANS, La. -- Nola Bulls, LLC has found a way to carry on the fun of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans with an online gathering of amigos.

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic and the uncertainty of legal gatherings of more than 10 people, the organizers and brain trust of San Fermin in Nueva Orleans have opted for an online fiesta. On Saturday July 11, 2020 all are invited to join the team as they present a way to revel with the friends they normally see each year, but cannot due to the virus.

Annually since 2007 people have come from around the globe to enjoy the company of friends and the gorings of our Virtual Bulls, aka RollerBulls(tm). The team had to be creative in order to bring the fun and festive feeling of SFNO to their loyal fans. Notify your friends and schedule a socially distant/approved way to join in.

Back in 2007 some friends dreamt up the idea of recreating the famous Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain by replacing the four-legged bovines with two-legged RollerBulls played by the Big Easy Rollergirls roller derby team. What has occurred since is nothing short of amazing. Each year hundreds of roller derby skaters (aka RollerBulls) from around the globe chase down and whoop willing runners through the streets of New Orleans. It's all part of a great three-day fiesta.

The three-day event that usually spans many blocks and venues in the city of New Orleans will be shortened to a few hours, but expanded to venues around the world. Entry to this virtual wonderland is available via

Look for performances from our beloved local groups and bands as well as some introductions to fans that come annually to enjoy our beloved city and this wacky fiesta.

Nola Bulls, LLC was founded in 2007 and is a provider and promoter of entertainment and cultural events in the New Orleans Area: Improving New Orleans one festival at a time. SFNO helps raise money for two local charities, visit and for info on these.

All Trademarks and service marks are the property of the respective parties.
