Jul 23, 2021

Dame Munni Irone with California stateBeverly Hills, California Jul 24, 2021 (Issuewire.com) - Critically acclaimed celebrity Patrick Kilpatrick announced his bid to be the next Governor of California.  With the current establishment unable and unwilling to adapt to the needs of its citizens, the time is ripe for a change. Mr. Kilpatrick is running as a Democrat in the recall election with a non-partisan, unity campaign. California is experiencing upsurges in crime, homelessness, and corruption following the ineffective leadership of the disgraced governor Newsom. Mr. Kilpatrick is pledging to restore the shine to the Golden State and bring back the values and industries that have fled in recent years. 'As a journalist, advertising writer, playwright, assistant director/director on Broadway, the West End of London, throughout films and TV the world over, as a screenwriter, movie, and film finance developer, with teams of the best and brightest of a generation, we have delivered the goods. All around us, California citizens are not being well served - pushing away production and businesses of every type, sprawling homelessness and taxes failed education, faux service to the environment, accelerating crime and undelivered equal justice.' Kilpatrick said earlier today. 'Our campaign is without partisanship, with authentic listening and driving solutions to halt California's free fall.' His announcement could not have come at a better time with many experts in the field predicting even worse hardships ahead for Californians. Those at the lowest income levels are being hit the worst. To stem the tide, Mr. Kilpatrick has adopted the following policies: " Hollywood back to California. Bring film/TV production, eco-sensitive industries - all those jobs back through greater incentives. Immediate implementation of a 25% cash rebate for in-state spending for vetted film/TV media, video games, and photographic projects. " Elevate our schools by ensuring that funding reaches children's programs and teachers. Our pre-K to community colleges should be the finest in the country. " Lower taxes. More money in the hands of Californians to increase choices for all. " Zero tolerance for crime with advanced police training and reform. " Eradicate homelessness by providing essential services and employment necessary. " Secure borders, equal justice for everyone - path to citizenship with a fine for illegal entry. " Improve the environment for a better tomorrow. Federal/State subsidy for eco solar and wind power retrofitting, including Landlord installation subsidies. Statewide compliance of single-use biodegradable utensils/packaging. Severe fines for industrial polluters. Drought tolerant plant mandates. Preferential water rates for organic agriculture and humane animal food production. " Highway expansion at gridlock chokepoints. " Private sector initiatives for design-worthy affordable housing. " 70% tax credit for revitalization and renovation of historic buildings - driving homeownership for the middle class and young families. " Creation of a large-scale workforce for fire forestry maintenance, recycling programs, beach clean-up/ocean preservation, school, open space, and highway beautification. Patrick Kilpatrick is a veteran of 200+ films and hit TV shows, an accomplished actor, writer, and producer. He has worked with some of the biggest names in the business including Steven Spielberg, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Cruise, James Cameron, Bruce Willis, Antoine Fuqua, Chow Yun-Fat, Naomi Watts, and many more.

Jul 23, 2021

Many of which are shot in locations all over the world using drone video that provides access to places where regular filmmakers simply cannot go. This makes for some spectacular footage. The latest upload to its YouTube channel is a France 4K Relaxation Film. It makes for a very pleasant watch which its tranquil and calming music playing in the background. Greg Webster, Destination Paradise’s creator, says, “Just because the ability to travel freely has taken a hit in the last year because of the pandemic does not mean that people should not be able to relive some memories of the favorite places they visited or be able to get a glimpse of some of the destinations on their bucket list. That’s exactly why I like posting these incredible high-resolution videos on my YouTube channel. They are definitely the next best thing to being there. This latest France 4K video is one of the more comprehensive videos of a country that I have ever uploaded onto my channel.” The France 4k video starts with a beautiful film capture of a winding river in the French countryside that really sets the tone for the entire relaxation video. What makes this opening shot even more appealing is that it was shot during the change to the fall season and all of the vivid colors that go along with that. Next, there was a beautiful coastline shot that spliced into some of the only handheld footage in the film that included the Eiffel Tower. Webster added that he was happy that this video of France was able to include some footage from just about every corner of it. That includes shots from the seascape that surrounds the marine city of Nice France and many of the yachts, boats, and ships that often dock there. On the western edge of France, there was also some nice drone footage of the Normandy region. Drone shots of the coastal area of the region remind the viewers of all the history that once took place there in World War II. On the opposite end of the southern coast, the French Riviera city of Menton and all of its beauty were nicely captured. This area featured not only some great footage of the city’s harbor and coastal area but also its iconic Basilica of Saint-Michel-Archangel. Webster pointed out that this newly posted video also included some eye-opening scenes that were filmed by drone near the River Orb, Le Pont Vieux, and the famous Cathédrale Saint-Nazaire in Béziers. Other highlights of the France 4K video include scenes from the Franco-Italian border with the Alps in the background that also includes amazing drone footage of a sunset over Le Mont Blanc in that part of the French Alps. He also mentioned that this is quickly becoming one of his favorite additions to what he likes to refer to as Destination Paradise mountain drone videos. That’s those videos that contain main exclusive drone video shots of otherwise unobtainable mountainous locations. Webster stated that he was very pleased with how the video included both major and minor cities, had footage of seaside cliffs as well as more rural areas and even managed to include shots of some old castles and other pieces of history. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=03GSC61pbw4 Webster went on to talk about some of the other newer videos that were posted to the Destination Paradise YouTube channel. This includes a Switzerland 4K scenic mountain nature drone relaxation video with ambient music and a New Zealand 4K scenic relaxation film that also has calming background music. Virtually every country has drone video representation on the Destination Paradise YouTube channel. He has also uploaded videos of all 50 of the states in the USA and videos that are completely centered on specific scenic attractions in America. Webster says that he looks forward to adding many more breathtaking and relaxing high-resolution films to the Destination Paradise YouTube channel very soon. ###For more information about Destination Paradise, contact the company here:Destination ParadiseGreg Webster7063082256gwr@verticaleight.com2292 J Warren RoadCornelia GA 30531ReleaseID: 60044734

J&M Tree Service Rancho Cucamonga Confirms That Customers No Longer Have to Pay for Tree Service Estimates and Quotations

Jul 23, 2021

July 24, 2021 - /PressAdvantage/ - Rancho Cucamonga, California – A company that has always put a lot of focus into making tree care procedures as affordable as possible, J&M Tree Service Rancho Cucamonga has just declared that its customers will be enjoying free estimates and quotations. The company reports that its customers will only need to spend their money after the value has been added to their trees and landscapes. “We have noticed that some of the costs that make professional tree service expensive are not even necessary,” said the company’s CEO, “Property owners aren’t supposed to spend their money on tree service estimates and quotations. Their money is supposed to pay for the work done on their trees. This is something that we’ve just turned into a reality.” J&M Tree Service Rancho Cucamonga boasts close to three decades of tree service. The company’s team of tree service providers is made up of well-trained and experienced professionals. To go with this team, J&M Tree Service Rancho Cucamonga has invested in the latest tree service machines. Armed with machines like bucket trucks and modern safety tools, the company’s team of experts can handle the most complicated tree maintenance procedures safely and quickly. “We handle all types of tree care procedures,” said the company’s CEO, “When a customer tells us that his property needs a facelift, we immediately understand that what the trees need is aesthetic trimming. When trees develop damaged branches, our team uses tree pruning to remove these branches, restoring safety and health on the tree’s crown.” J&M Tree Service Rancho Cucamonga reports that its team is equipped to handle all types of tree removals. “While we do offer the tree removal service,” said the company’s chief of field operations, “It is not our most favorite service. Our goal is to protect Rancho Cucamonga’s urban forest and if there is a way we can avoid removing a tree, we will always try to help the property owner save his/her tree. However, in circumstances where a homeowner wants to create space for his property development project, a tree is threatening to fall on utilities, a tree is dead, or its health is irreversibly damaged, we safely execute the tree removal procedure.” J&M Tree Service Rancho Cucamonga offices are located at 9650 Business Center Dr, Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730, United States. To reach the company, however, customers will just need to call 909-344-5143. ###For more information about J&M Tree Service Rancho Cucamonga, contact the company here:J&M Tree Service Rancho CucamongaDoNovan Marvin909-344-5143sales@riversidetreecare.com9650 Business Center DrRancho Cucamonga, CA91730ReleaseID: 60044879
