Sha Bandzz the Artist

The new age hip hop music artist and entertainment company owner, Sha Bandzz From Perth Amboy, New Jersey was born January 27, 2000 to loving parents. Faced with a great obstacle early in life, he was just 8 when his father was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison which is the true bait to his hunger. Bandzz says before the music sports was his outlet but music has helped to cope with life and connect with others who can relate.

After graduating high school Sha Bandzz spent one semester studying business at Utica college, in Utica New York, where he says he spent a lot of self-time reflecting. The following semester he dropped out of college and returned Home to pursue his dreams of becoming a music mogul.

The EP "Watch Me Work" is a statement for all the haters, doubters, naysayers and others who said he couldn't make it as a rapper and think he should have stayed in school. (Hints the title "watch me work," he is telling those doubters to sit back and watch what he can do.) After the smash hit "Bentleys" got national attention and radio play in over 26 different countries, there is no denying Sha Bandzz is a musical prospect.

Bandzz has something to prove: The young versatile artist puts his creativity on full display with "Watch Me Work" the EP. With the recent Covid-19 pandemic affecting millions, Sha Bandzz in a humanitarian effort decided to donate the proceeds from "Watch Me Work" to finding a cure for the coronavirus.

Sha says "The covid-19 Hasn't affected me personally just yet but the virus has the potential to take out the vast majority of our loved ones young and old alike." Consequently, Sha Bandzz Ent. Made the business decision to donate the artist proceeds from the EP to be proactive in assisting in creating an antidote for the coronavirus.

Sha Bandzz has other works out now like his 2019 summer hit "Bodybuilder feat. EEM, & Kannons" and the song that started his career as an artist "in Love WIth The Money" - this track also features EEM. The list goes on and so many more, new features coming soon and plenty more albums to come.

Advanced Mediation Solutions Founder Provides Helpful Tips for Divorcees During the Coronavirus

HADDONFIELD, N.J. -- Getting divorced is a major life change, and the process is stressful even under the best of circumstances. Now as the nation grapples with the COVID-19 outbreak, it has pushed many divorcing spouses to the breaking point. "This is a trying time for everyone in our country, but it is especially hard on individuals who were already dealing with other major difficulties," says Roseann Vanella, founder of Advanced Mediation Solutions.

She adds, "During times like these, we all need to come together and do what we can to help those who are hurting."

Couples who are planning a divorce or have started process already face uncertain futures, but now they have several other issues to deal with as well. For starters, we are all trying to practice good hygiene and follow social distancing guidelines to help prevent the spread of this virus, which for most of us means a radical disruption to our regular routines.

"Right now, divorcing spouses have a lot of additional things to worry about," Vanella continues. "What if somebody in the family gets the virus? Or worse yet, what if one of their aging family members gets it? How do you deal with work with the kids at home? How do I keep my appointments if I'm quarantined in my house?"

"For many people, schedules have changed drastically, and they are scrambling to try to make everything work while they are in trying to proceed with their divorce. Finances are suddenly getting tighter, many of the courts are closed or have limited hours, and major schedule changes often necessitate revisiting co-parenting plans."

Coping with a Divorce During the COVID - 19 Breakout

As divorcees struggle to adapt to the coronavirus crisis, Vanella offers some tips to help them deal with the stress and get through the process:

Protect your Children during the Crisis: With schools closed and kids at home, many parents have a lot more time to spend with them. We will need to make some hard choices and explain to them why they need to follow social distancing guidelines for their protection, but this can also be turned into an opportunity for more family bonding.

Focus on Your Own Health: Try to find things to do at home that you enjoy and that help ease the stress. Go for a walk if you are able, or maybe just take some time for yourself to relax and meditate. Some of us have a lot more time on our hands, and this gives us an opportunity to get in some "alone" time as well.

Be Creative: Many courts are closed right now, and some people are under self-quarantine. But these disruptions might actually be an opportunity to explore a less stressful way to get divorced. For example, with mediation, you can settle your divorce mostly without the involvement of the court, and you can do so in a more cooperative setting that is geared toward reducing conflict and producing amicable resolutions.

Take Advantage of Technology: Being stuck at home, you will need to rely heavily on technology to help pass the time and to move forward with your divorce. This is where solutions like virtual mediation can be very helpful. With virtual mediation, sessions can be conducted remotely from anywhere in the world (as long as you have a phone or stable internet connection).

Stay Plugged In: Many people are having a hard time dealing with everything that is happening out there. Now, more than ever, we need to stay connected with those closest to us, even if we have to do so virtually. Also, if you are seeing a therapist or another professional, try to continue these sessions remotely as well.

"This situation is unprecedented, and it is disrupting everyone's lives. But we are all in this together, and if we take advantage of creative solutions and exercise patience and understanding during the process, we can and will get through this," adds Vanella.

WAYNE, N.J. -- Sola Salon Studios has had many "firsts" since the company's inception in 2004. On May 6, 2019, Sola added another historic milestone to the list by officially being the first salon studio/suite concept for beauty professionals to open in the state of New Jersey!

The first New Jersey Sola Salon Studios location was opened in Wayne (1607 Route 23 South) and features 33 state-of-the-art, customizable, move-in ready studios for beauty professionals - hairstylists, colorists, estheticians, nail techs, permanent makeup artists and more - under one roof.

In addition to providing beautiful studios for professionals to call their business home, Sola Salon Studios help support their independent businesses with comprehensive educational resources, cutting-edge technology, and high-quality marketing support. We provide the support and tools they need to launch their salon business in no time. The actual studios come in a variety of layouts and several sizes for all types of beauty professionals.

The second New Jersey location opened in Cedar Knolls (170 East Hanover Avenue), in September, 2019 and a third location in Holmdel, NJ (2103 NJ-35) opened December, 2019. A fourth location will be coming to Princeton (676 Nassau Park Blvd) in 2020, with additional locations to be announced.

We offer salon professionals the freedom and benefits of salon ownership without the upfront costs and risks associated with opening a traditional salon. Our innovative salon model empowers beauty professionals to take control of their lives and their careers.

It is personally gratifying for me to empower these female entrepreneurs to realize their dreams of owning their own salons, to create the life that they envision for themselves, to maximize their income, and to successfully juggle their business and family obligations,"

"My studio is private and intimate and allows me to think outside the box. At the end of the day, it's mine and I make of it what I want alongside my clients. I have the freedom to deliver my art as a hairdresser," said Fernie Adame.

"Owning my studio gives me the freedom to create my hours. That's huge! I allow time for other things, like going to school while still working full-time," said Esthetician, Morgan Cameron.

Twenty-Two States Proclaim March 2020 SUDC Awareness Month for Unexplained Childhood Deaths

ROSELAND, N.J. -- The Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) Foundation thanks Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia for making statewide proclamations declaring March 2020 SUDC Awareness Month.

These are the first states to join a nationwide effort led by the SUDC Foundation to raise awareness of one of the most under-recognized medical tragedies of our time, marking the beginning of a month-long campaign all over the world.

Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) is a category of death in children over the age of 1 year which remains unexplained after a thorough investigation, including an autopsy. Most often, a seemingly healthy child goes to sleep and never wakes up. Approximately 400 children are lost to SUDC in the United States every year.

"We have made incredible strides as we honor SUDC Awareness Month each March," said Laura Gould Crandall, President and Co-founder of the SUDC Foundation. "Last year, we surpassed serving our 1,000th family since the inception of the SUDC Foundation. While we are sorry for the reason, we are thankful these families were able to connect with our worldwide community and unique range of services. This is a true testament to the SUDC Foundation's tireless outreach and awareness efforts. But we must keep striving to ensure every family who needs us is able to find us and to advocate for research that will help us create a world without SUDC."

The SUDC Foundation will once again mark SUDC Awareness Month by hosting weekly activities for every SUDC supporter to raise awareness of SUDC and remember the children gone far too soon.

To learn more, please visit: https://sudc.org/get-involved/sudc-awareness-month

The SUDC Foundation is advocating for SUDC Awareness Month proclamations in all 50 U.S. states this March. In 2019, 43 U.S. states participated. This nationwide effort began in 2016, inspired by Drew Joseph Boswell and the Boswell family. The Boswell family successfully advocated for the first statewide proclamation declaring March 2015 as SUDC Awareness Month in the State of Louisiana.

To see a full list of previous efforts as well as additional states who have joined, please visit: https://sudc.org/get-involved/legislative-advocacy/sudc-awareness-proclamations

The SUDC Foundation is the only organization worldwide whose purpose is to promote awareness, advocate for research and support those affected by SUDC. The SUDC Foundation provides all services at no cost to families. Learn more: https://sudc.org/
