Anna Wilding's attorneys seek security support from New Line as Ms. Wilding Grapples with persistent stalking concerns left following Lord of the Rings movies

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Mar. 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- According to Anna Wilding, Mark Ordesky acknowledged and thanked Ms. Wilding for her substantial contribution to the Lord of the Rings movies, in a conversation through New Line's Legal Affairs to Wilding's attorneys at the law firm of Cowan, DeBaets, Abrahams & Sheppard, in New York. Ms. Wilding has been left grappling with many security concerns since the movies, which has had a significant impact on her career. For the first time Ms. Wilding speaks publicly.

The films were directed by Peter Jackson and produced by Mark Ordesky and Barry Osbourne. Since the films, Ms. Wilding has been allegedly harassed and defamed by a set of Internet stalkers. It is not known who by, or why, Ms. Wilding is being attacked. Authorities concluded recently that the Internet attacks are coming out of America.

Ms. Wilding has not been compensated for her work despite the Trilogy grossing over 2 billion and the impact to Ms. Wil ding's own safety and security. Attorneys for Ms. Wilding sought assistance on a basis of fairness, to help stop the attacks Ms. Wilding has had to endure. No help was forthcoming from New Line.

Contrary to rumors by fans, there has not ever been any basis for legal proceedings between Ms. Wilding and New Line. Ms. Wilding's work, that enabled the film to continue, was at the corner stone of a flailing overspilling production beset with difficulties at the time. Anna Wilding worked extensively during the final year of production to bring about a peaceful resolution to ongoing conflicts and concerns on set with regards to the treatment of cast, crew and animals. Mr. Ordesky was often in touch with Ms. Wilding by telephone during both the production and editing stages of the films. to keep abreast of issues.

Ms. Wilding contacted Mr. Ordesky after she was contacted directly with complaints from crew, and cast members. Ms. Wilding researched, took statements and investigated, and experienced first hand the lack of cooperation, faced by cast and crew as they tried to get matters resolved through the production, safety and occupational groups, animal welfare groups and other agencies and outlets. Ms. Wilding then took the matter to the American Humane Association where for many months she continued to work on resolving matters. Some crew were injured during the making of the films, says Wilding, in which many horses were injured and several horses died.

All trademarks acknowledged.

POWAY, Calif. - Mar. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Intelligent Automation Corporation (IAC), proven leaders in aircraft Health and Usage Monitoring Systems (HUMS), successfully completed its first installation and test flight on the U.S. Army 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment's (160th SOAR) MH-47G Chinook helicopter. IAC is under contract to provide advanced diagnostic systems for the 160th SOAR MH-47G, MH-60K, and MH-6J "Little Bird" helicopters.

(c) Send2PressThe 160th SOAR is the most sophisticated and demanding aviation unit in the world with over one-hundred fifty state-of-the-art M-6, AH-6, MH-60 and MH-47 aircraft. IAC is uniquely qualified to provide the 160th SOAR with technologically advanced HUMS and diagnostic solutions. The 160th's highly specialized and demanding mission requires a highly sophisticated, easy-to-use HUMS system with a demonstrated track record of performance in order to meet their stringent requirements.

They are a sophisticated customer that helps push the technology envelope to meet their mission. The advanced systems developed and fielded by the 160th SOAR are increasingly transitioned into the regular Army and other DOD helicopters. This represents a market potential of well over 3000 helicopters. These systems significantly reduce helicopter operating costs while improving readiness and safely."

New collection from French furniture designer showcases the traditional design elements of Tuscany

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Mar. 6 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Known for its exquisite French antique reproductions, The Elysee Collection is saying "Buon giorno" with its latest offering, Collezione Contessa, a group of about 20 pieces inspired by traditional Italian living and the rustic beauty of the Tuscan countryside. From the breathtaking Credenza Verona to the stunning Cosimo drop-leaf writing desk, the collection features solid wood case goods hand-painted in the colors and textures of Tuscan Italy.

(c) Send2Press*(Photo Caption: Credenza Donatello (EC1029) from The Elysee Collection's newest line, Collezione Contessa, is a study in Italian design aesthetics touched with the warm palettes of a Tuscan landscape.)

Much like Tuscany itself, the elegant, handcrafted pieces in the Collezione Contessa reflect the simplicity and integrity of country life and the artistic qualities of the Renaissance period. Distressed and antiqued painted finishes combine with gilded edge Italianate details and craftsmanship found in the finest homes in Tuscany.

Collezione Contessa is awash in the palette of the Italian landscape: rich, sunny yellows of a courtyard bathed in late summer sun; tranquil azure blues of the Mediterranean; rustic whites and ecrus of a whitewashed stucco wall; deep, rich greens of cypress trees lining the entryways to the most beautiful villas; and vibrant yet earthy terra cottas found on the roof tiles of Italian farmhouses.

To celebrate the new group, The Elysee Collection will present a theme of "A Season in Italy" during this month's High Point Market. The exterior of The Elysee Collection's showroom in Hamilton Market has been transformed into an Italian piazza, complete with a bella donna (beautiful woman) handing out lavender sprigs to lucky passersby, filling the air with the rich aroma of a Tuscan summer day.

Designers who purchase pieces from Collezione Contessa during market will receive a complimentary copy of Tuscan Elements, a stunningly rendered coffee table book by Alexandra Black, author of numerous books on design and architecture and a regular contributor to House & Garden, Elle and Vogue Living, with photography by famed photo artist Simon McBride.

To learn more about the Collezione Contessa and to experience a season in Italy during the High Point Market, stop by The Elysee Collection's showroom at Hamilton Market, 101 N. Hamilton Street, #115, between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. or call 919-967-8686 to set up an appointment.
