Indie Music Star Luanne Hunt delivers ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul’ message in her Top 40 hit single, ‘WE RISE’

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Amid the Coronavirus lockdown, award-winning, critically acclaimed indie music star Luanne Hunt decided to use her free time to tap into her creativity and write the Top 40 Gospel/Inspirational hit "We Rise," a song the Hollywood Digest calls an "anthem for our times."

The uplifting song can be heard on radio stations around the world and is currently climbing the Adult Contemporary and Christian Music charts.

Other reviewers see it as a musical dose of inspiration, bringing the same type of hope and healing found in Jack Canfield's "Chicken Soup for the Soul" stories. According to Troy Johnston of FAME Magazine, "We Rise" is just what the doctor ordered to lead people from all walks of life to a brighter and more abundant tomorrow.

"Beautifully presented and enchanting from the start, Luanne Hunt's 'We Rise' is the Chicken Soup of song we humans need," said Troy Johnston of FAME Magazine. "It's a winner of a tune that puts humanity back into perspective and reminds us as listeners that thinking positive and spreading joy to others is as simple as it gets."

Hunt, who lives in Las Vegas, Nevada, wrote "We Rise" as the theme song for a philanthropic organization she is preparing to launch in early 2021 called, "We Rise Women's Network."

The network will aim to provide women across the nation opportunities to gather, make lasting friendships, heal from wounds of the past and tap into their inner strength through the power of togetherness, Hunt said.

"When I began making plans for the Network, the first thing I did was write the theme song for it," said Hunt, a native of Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. "As 'We Rise' came together in the studio, I realized it holds a message that people need to hear right now. So many are running out of hope but united, we are strong. I have no doubt we can rise above everything that's threatening all we hold true and dear."

Over her 25-year career, Hunt has scored numerous No. 1 hits on country, folk and gospel charts around the world. The award-winning, Grammy-balloted recording artist is best known for her chart-topping single, "Christmas Without You," which was named by Sweden's largest daily newspaper, Dagens Nyheter, one of the Top 25 Christmas Songs of All-time.

She also is the recipient of three CD of the Year awards from the National Traditional Country Music Association (NTCMA) and six American Songwriting Awards.

The adult contemporary/contemporary Christian-inspired "We Rise" follow's Hunt's award-winning, critically acclaimed country album, "Backroads, Bottles & Blues," which features her No. 1 hit duet with Steven Bankey, "Lightning in A Bottle."

"Fans that love the Andra Day song 'Rise Up' should take a chance on Luanne Hunt's 'We Rise,'" said Garth Thomas, reviewer for the Hollywood Digest. "I'm positive that Hunt's country fans will stick with her and love this song, which is both inspiring and entertaining."

Melita’s Table Delivers a Revolutionary Cinco De Mayo Feast

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Cinco de Mayo has become one of the most beloved and celebrated days of the year. Though many Nevadans will enjoy the historic date at home this year, there's no reason to avoid dancing, margaritas and an amazing vegan taco creation made special by Melita's Table.

In November 2019, veteran Vegas restauranteur Kori McClurg opened Melita's Table, a plant-based delivery and catering only kitchen concept. Las Vegas has happily embraced this healthy, all-natural Latin-based option.

To celebrate the success, and provide vegan delights for Cinco de Mayo, Melita's Table has created Butter Lettuce Shell Tacos. The new shells provide a zesty alternative to the flavorless iceberg lettuce wraps of old.

Try a revolutionary taco trend to celebrate Cinco de Mayo, which commemorates the 1862 Mexican military victory over the French forces of Napoleon III.

The new butter lettuce wraps provide plenty of space to pile on quinoa, lentil picadillo and marinated citrus portobello. The new taco design delivers all the flavor without the gluten or meat.

Melita's Table is not just for those with special dietary needs. We are here to provide all-natural Latin offerings to customers who crave Old World flavors fused with modern-day health options; including nut-free, soy free, gluten free, and oil free menu items.

Melita's Table is aimed at customers who demand meals that stress healthy ingredients and environmental sustainability.

"Amazing flavor is what we do," McClurg said. "We bring Old World wholesome foods right to your door."

Don't let this year's Cinco de Mayo go to waste with second-rate food. Think like a health-minded revolutionary. Go for the zest and zing with Butter Lettuce Shell Vegan Tacos loaded with juicy and flavorful citrus portobello, cucumber salsa, cilantro, guacamole and pico.

Our Butter Lettuce Shell Tacos are not just amazing, but they go perfectly with our incredible Tres Leches Cake. This traditional Latin treat comes saturated with a sweet frosting glaze. The cake is so good, you might not want to share. But in the spirit of May 5th, we're sure you will find a way.

All of our gluten-free and vegan offerings are available for delivery and pick-up through DoorDash, UberEats, Postmates and Grubhub.

Let's celebrate Cinco de Mayo together with the best and healthiest food since the revolution. Viva Cinco de Mayo and taco lovers everywhere.

Las Vegas Restaurant Franchise Focuses on Equal Opportunity and Provides Leadership Roles for Women!

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Ori'Zaba's, one of Las Vegas's most popular scratch Mexican food franchises, has become a leading voice - and employer - for women who seek leadership roles in the restaurant industry.

The nineteen-year-old Mexican food franchise was founded by longtime Las Vegas restaurateur Kori McClurg, a military veteran and corporate executive, who understands the value women managers, employees and leaders bring to a company.

After serving in the United States Air Force and working as a defense contractor, Kori developed strong analytic and leadership skills, which she most recently put to work managing private investments and as an owner of Ori'Zaba's Scratch Mexican Grill.

"As a woman, who has fought her way up in the military and also the corporate chain of command, I know the challenges women face in the workplace. That's why Ori'Zaba's stresses a culture that celebrates women leaders," McClurg said.

The company actively engages in a hiring and promotional process that increases the number of talented women in leadership roles. More than 80 percent of the of Ori'Zaba's Franchise General Managers are women. About 60 percent of the company's executive team are women.

"Women make up the majority of the population and it's about time companies and franchises reflect that reality and bring more women into all workplaces," McClurg said.

"We wanted to enhance our culture, improve training, and reduce turnover. The people we have in our GM positions have been able to achieve that. I believe that is a testament to skills that are not traditionally thought of as strong leadership characteristics. When we start thinking about what actually impacts our business and the bottom line versus what makes a 'strong' leader, these women have been able to make a difference," McClurg said.

In honor of International Women's Day 2020, which takes place March 8, and to truly understand the significance of Ori'Zaba's commitment, McClurg said it is important to highlight the history of the international women's rights movement.

The History of International Women's Day
Since the first gathering in 1911, International Women's Day (IWD) has been celebrated annually on March 8.

In that time, the women's rights movement has celebrated many victories, including but not limited to:

* In 1948, the United Nations adopted the first international document to assert "the dignity and worth of the human person and [the] equal rights of men and women."
* In 1979, the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women.
* In 2017, the Women's March on Washington, DC, became the largest international mass demonstration in support of women's rights. Affiliated marches were held in Accra, Bangkok, Paris, Nairobi, Belgrade, Buenos Aires, Krakow, and even Antarctica.

Women in Leadership

By 2018, women made up nearly half (46.9%) of the whole US labor force, yet they only accounted for slightly over a third (40.0%) of managers.

Believe it or not, in 2019, there were still fewer women in leadership positions than there were men named John.

That figure seems astounding in light of research conducted by Harvard Business Review found that, "Women Score Higher Than Men in Most Leadership Skills."

"As a woman who has served in the military and in the corporate world, I do understand the challenges that women face in the workplace. My intention has been to create a place where people can be successful right along with the company. Because of my experience, I have the objectivity to see what's actually valuable versus the way things have always been done or who has always done them," McClurg said.

There is no doubt that the healthy growth of Ori'Zaba's franchise family, since its creation in 2001, is in great part due to these amazing energetic women leaders.

Ladies, on behalf of the whole Ori'Zaba's franchise family - thank you!

Tips from the American Gem Society on Selling Your Fine Jewelry in 2020

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- The diamond necklace from an ex, the gold watch that sits in your jewelry box, the ruby necklace that you loved-a decade ago. We all have jewelry that we no longer wear. Selling your old jewelry is an option, but it can be hard to know how and where to get started. Here are a few tips from the American Gem Society (AGS) on getting the most from your rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces.

1. Know the worth

You may love your jewelry, but the emotional value you assign to your jewelry often has little to do with the current fair market price of your piece. Many factors go into determining the current value of a piece of jewelry, including fashion and style, current condition, designer (or not), and wearability or repair needs. Remember, that chain or gold watch is always worth its weight in gold, but may not be worth any more than that.

The best way to determine your item's value is by due diligence. Let several jewelers evaluate it and ask for a purchase offer. Have an AGS trained Certified Gemologist® (CG), a Certified Gemologist® Appraiser (CGA) or an Independent Certified Gemologist® Appraiser (ICGA), recommend an accurate replacement value. Keep in mind that your used item will not bring the same price as a new comparable item.

It is important to know the new price in order to determine the selling price. You should expect low offers in comparison to the replacement value, because any jeweler who purchases it will try to resell it, and in effect becomes the middle-man who will sell it for a higher price to make a profit.

2. Be informed

Consider how quickly you want to sell your jewelry. If you want an immediate sale (i.e. cash in hand today), your options will be limited on where you can sell, and how much cash someone might be willing to pay immediately. Many jewelry stores offer a consignment option, where you leave your piece with them, and upon sale, they pay you. This is often the best way to maximize the money you receive.

If you are able to wait, researching some other possibilities could net you a better price for your jewelry, or provide other options, like re-setting gemstones from your jewelry into a new piece.

Visit an AGS jeweler who buys jewelry (not all do; make sure to call ahead) and learn your options to sell your piece or work out another solution.

3. Be realistic

Have a range in mind of what you would accept for the piece and be willing to accept an offer in that range. Be aware you may get offers that are higher, or possibly lower, based upon all the factors previously mentioned.

If you are looking for a jeweler in your area who might be interested in purchasing your jewelry, or if you are interested in re-setting your gemstones into a new piece, visit http://www.ags.org/findajeweler.

DoorBusters Lock and Safe Las Vegas Now Offers 24 Hour Guaranteed Services

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- DoorBusters Lock & Safe Las Vegas, a community-focused locksmith service provider in Las Vegas, recently announced that their mobile team is now available 24 hours a day to provide impeccable services.

In terms of locksmith services, DoorBusters Lock & Safe Las Vegas has always raised the bars for its competitors. From residential to commercial, automotive to emergency, the locksmith Las Vegas NV company's services have been unmatched in terms of professionalism and timeliness. In keeping with the requirements of most customers, the leading locksmith company has decided to be operational for 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

Customers can avail quality services as always, and also be relieved knowing that any repair or emergency issue would be provided to them on the same day, and the onus is on the 24 hour locksmith company to provide the customers with the right manpower.

"Often it happens that the client has called up the customer help desk section and the technicians have reached the destination instantly. But once the person has left, the customer has detected some major issue that wasn't resolved when the expert came at first. The company now ensures that the issue will again be responded to and the problem fixed, without any extra cost. It's recommended that the customers get their locks and keys checked and rechecked once the technician comes on board. This way they can save their money too," said Eli Levi, CEO of the company.

However, the 24 hour locksmith Las Vegas business owners also pointed at some granular details of the round-the-clock availability of their staff members. It is only after proving that the service dispensed was not perfect then the customer can get access to the second or third round of problem detection and inspection on the same day. Also, the team will reach the location at the earliest to provide the guarantee. But the customer must show the bill as valid proof.

Eli Levi, the CEO of the locksmith Las Vegas company who was present in the press conference said, "The 24-hour service guarantee is a new and much sought-after add-on. Most other organizations haven't taken this leap. But we know customers better and what they truly deserve. We insist them to avail this facility and be benefited likewise."

American Gem Society Offers Tips for Holiday Jewelry Purchases

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- The American Gem Society (AGS), a nonprofit association dedicated to consumer protection and the ongoing education of jewelers, is providing tips for consumers to keep in mind this holiday season before hitting the stores to make significant diamond and jewelry purchases.

* Be aware of inflated pricing. If a discount seems too good to be true, it probably is. AGS member jewelers must adhere to standards of business conduct that strictly prohibit inflating a price by a certain percent, then advertising that it is that same percentage off.
* See it. Touch it. Feel it. Though the prices for jewelry found online are sometimes lower, AGS recommends that consumers see, touch, and feel the jewelry they are considering purchasing - especially diamonds. Online purchases can look different in person than on a screen.
* Ask for a diamond grading report. It's important to ask for a diamond grading report from an independent laboratory. A thorough grading report covers all 4Cs-cut, color, clarity, and carat-so that the jewelry buyers know and understand the quality of what they are purchasing. AGS Laboratories was founded in 1996 by AGS as a nonprofit diamond grading laboratory that shares their mission of consumer protection. This mission ensures jewelry buyers will receive an unbiased opinion on the quality of their diamond.
* Ask for Credentials. AGS encourages jewelry buyers to shop with a credentialed, professional jeweler, who is a member of an organization with a strict code of business ethics, such as AGS. By shopping with a jeweler who knows and understands gems and metals, jewelry buyers will feel less stress and more confident with their purchase.

Restaurant Veteran Launches Sustainable Latin-Based Delivery and Catering Service

LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Longtime Las Vegas restaurateur Kori McClurg is on a mission to change and improve the way American's eat. McClurg, who operates a chain of Ori'Zaba's Scratch Mexican Grill restaurants in the Las Vegas area, is about to open "Melita's Table," a plant-based delivery and catering only kitchen concept to the Las Vegas community.

This new kitchen concept is a delivery only operation that does not have a storefront or in-store dining. The concept is ideal for on the go consumers who demand healthy food without the hassle of dining out.

Melita's Table, which opens on November 1, will provide all-natural Latin offerings to customers who crave Old World flavors fused with modern-day health options suited for many dietary needs; including nut-free, soy free, gluten free, and oil free menu items.

Melita's Table -- a delivery and catering only service - is aimed at customers who demand meals that stress healthy ingredients and environmental sustainability, but do not want to compromise on flavor.

"Amazing flavor is what we do, but it our food feels as good as it tastes. You don't need to compromise your values," McClurg said. "We bring Old World, wholesome foods right to your door."

The delivery and catering-only kitchen concept is relatively new to Las Vegas, McClurg said. "The food we create at Melita's Table is the kind of food people want," she said. "They want transparency in their meals; they want to feel better about what they are buying; they want real, whole foods. And they want food that supports sustainability and the environment. By using all plant-based ingredients and environmentally-sensitive packaging, we are working to sustain the planet."

All of the food created by Melita's Table is prepared in professional kitchens that follow all regulations. This delivery and catering only concept will lead to better efficiency, and sustainability, McClurg said.

McClurg has a military background where she learned how to lead and build efficient operations. She knows how to get the most from a dollar. Melita's Table will use dedicated spaces in professional kitchens, allowing for a better return on real estate. Food is prepared fresh, using efficient processes that provide matchless quality. Every step of the experience, from ordering to food preparation and delivery, has been thought through to ensure maximum value for the customer. At Melita's Table you get more goodness for your money. You can count on it.

But customers also want traditional meals that deliver all natural ingredients with an Old World twist.

McClurg struck upon her Latin-infused, all-natural kitchen concept after years of travel and food exploration across Mexico and Latin America. She studied the culinary techniques of Old Mexico. She also enlisted the help of other culinary experts local to Las Vegas. The result is a delivery and catering only concept that provides unique ingredients such as a Latin Skillet with Lentil Picadillo and Citrus Portobello. Whole grain options in many dishes include Red Quinoa and Farro. Pineapple and Cucumber salsa add a unique twist to many of the dishes such as Gluten Free Green Enchiladas and Street Tacos.

"Our delivery and catering only concept will provide a new, tantalizing dining experience which treads lightly on the Earth," McClurg said. "Our completely plant focused menu and recyclable packaging is just as important to us, as is creating tasty food."

And unlike most take-out styled restaurants, Melita's Table gives customers the option to create their own plates, based on their dietary needs.

"There is no such thing as a special order," she said. "We have a 'Build Your Own' menu section to let guests choose their favorite ingredients and customize their order."

McClurg currently employs 80 people with restaurant locations all across the Las Vegas metro area. Her restaurants have won many coveted awards at the Bite of Las Vegas.

But McClurg understands that her delivery and catering only concept, much like the food truck craze, will provide restaurateurs with a new opportunity. She said that Melita's Table will provide healthy, sustainable foods to families in a quick, and affordable way. The delivery and catering only concept will also create a unique eating experience for customers.

"Melita's Table is focused on creating Latin flavors that are delivered to you," McClurg said. "We will change the way Americans eat with food that is delivered fast, fresh and always healthy."

McClurg said she wants her Las Vegas vision to grow into a national franchise.

"This is just the start," she said. "We chose Las Vegas as ground zero for the franchise plan, because this is a foodie town with high expectations."
