Franklin County Visitors Bureau Presents 1864 The Burning On July 18

Chambersburg PA (PRWEB) May 31, 2015

As summer hits its stride, Chambersburg is ready for its annual 1864 commemoration that pays tribute to the strength, faith, and determination of Chambersburg’s resident, who rebuilt the community from the ashes of destruction after the Confederate burning on July 30, 1864. The history reenactment pits Jacob Hoke, an actual merchant on the square of Chambersburg in 1864, against Confederate General “Tiger” John McCausland, who executed the order of his superior General Jubal Early to first ransom and then, if the ransom was not met, burn the town.

1864 is not an ordinary living history event. Staged from the steps of the Franklin County courthouse, the backdrop is truly authentic as today’s courthouse recycles six of the pillars from the 1842 courthouse–the previous courthouse gutted by the Confederate burning. But, most distinctive is the burning–done with lights so realistically, the courthouse and adjoining buildings appear to be afire. As the narration of the story, using original source materials concludes, the town rises from the ashes and is bathed in beautiful lights to signify the rebirth.

Leading up to 1864 The Burning, there are Civil War walking tours, history exhibits, living history vignettes, old-time photos, and book signings. At 7 PM, the musical entertainment is the focus as finalists of the A Capella & Unplugged perform one last time. The winner will be announced just before 1864 The Ransoming, Burning & Rebirth of Chambersburg begins.

1864 is adding more activities for children, including a special vendor Zoo Zoo’s Animaland to let kids of all ages create a furry friend. A special “Franklin County-Ben Bear” will be featured at 1864 and anyone registering at the Franklin County Visitors Bureau booth will be entered to win a free “Ben Bear.” The historic events of 1864 have been made into a video, using footage of the light shows.

This year when 1864 concludes, visitors can continue the celebration with more music, a little art, and some friendly and fun competitions at Illuminate! After Party at the Capitol Theatre, a block north on South Main Street.

Earlier in the day, the annual festival Old Market Day fills the streets of Chambersburg with over 100 stalls–row after row of art and craft vendors displaying one-of-a-kind wares as well as an assortment of festival food. Local merchants will hold sidewalk sales and courthouse plaza will feature a variety of music from classic rock to folk and bluegrass.

Chambersburg remembers the history of July 1864 when Confederates served a ransom demand on Chambersburg. True to history, the demand of $ 100,000 in gold or $ 500,000 in greenbacks will not be paid, and Chambersburg will be burned–with lights.

The EmoSPARK Cube Is Bringing the Fascinating World of AI to Our Personal Lives

London, United (PRWEB) October 15, 2014

Life as we know is just about to change. Artificial intelligence is now making its way into homes in the form of a 90 x 90 x 90cm emotionally supportive cube with personality if its own named EmoSPARK.

Patrick Levy-Rosenthal, a Paris based entrepreneur has just created his latest crowd funding request on Indiegogo at for mass production of this Wi-Fi/Bluetooth connected cube. The worlds first artificial intelligence console can learn the emotions and language of people in their homes and make its own contributions to the emotional wellbeing of the family.

Over time it will even develop its own personality based on the interactions it has had with people. Patricks last campaign on Indiegogo secured funding of US$ 178,000 for development of this product. The current campaign is for mass production in addition to providing a vehicle to collect orders for pre-Christmas fulfilment.

This represents a great chance to surprise those at home with a virtual new family member who will be the focus of Christmas entertainment.

Similar to Apples Siri, its possible to speak with the cube but EmoSPARK will go one step further than Siri by providing entertainment and web content choices including music and videos based on the current mood and preferences of the user.

How can any inanimate object interact with humans and learn how to please them? Welcome to the fascinating world of Artificial Intelligence. Although AI and robots are used predominantly for military related applications, EmoSPARK brings AI to family life but on the level of emotions. Its a system that is there to root out any sadness and provide a media-based remedy for it.

This futuristic cube is powered by Android and can be communicated with in a number of different ways. Users can speak directly to it, type into their tablet, smartphone, TV or computer. This also means that new apps can be developed to stretch its abilities and bring new possibilities of abilities for EmoSPARK.

If anyone is wondering how this miniature but powerful mood enhancer works, read on. Using a unique face-tracking technology, the EmoSPARK will learn what one like and what one dont like by using 7 different emotions as a base for its own personal map of one’s personality; joy, sadness, disgust, fear, anger, trust, anticipation and surprise.

It can even connect to one’s accounts on Facebook and YouTube to dig deeper into one’s likes and interests and bring back content that it feels would be beneficial for one to watch or listen to.

If a user is having a particular bad day, EmoSPARK will try to tempt them into a better frame of mind with a few choice pieces of music that it knows they may like. It may even let them know that one of their friends has posted a video onto Facebook and will offer to play it on the television. If they opt in and are amused, EmoSPARK will find other similar content to amuse them.

A cube may also have a few down days of its own, but it can help itself by meeting with other cubes online in a virtual discussion group where they exchange experience and information that will be to their users benefit. Content with similar emotional tags can be transferred between cubes.

“Yes, we are now reaching into the future and EmoSPARK is proof of that. Be a part of it now on Indiegogo.”

Fun & Addictive New No-Cost App 100 Balls 3D from Giedrius Talzunas Tests Reaction Using a Realistic Physics Engine

Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2015

Users around the world who cant stop playing Giedrius Talzunas addictive and fun app 100 Balls — which has been downloaded over 13 million times and ranked No. 1 in over 70 countries can now take their gaming experience to new heights by downloading the much-anticipated 100 Balls 3D, which is now available in the App Store at no-cost.

Like its enormously popular predecessor, 100 Balls 3D is simple to grasp but difficult to master. Heres how its played: users tap their screen to open a kind of trap door on the bottom of a container. Since the container is suspended in the air, the balls are pulled by gravity towards the ground. So in gameplay terms: the balls are falling from the top of the screen to the bottom.

Users have to prevent these falling balls from hitting the ground by catching them in their cup. Once their cup is filled to the top, it automatically cycles back to the top of the container and dumps its contents. Users then get a brand new, empty cup with which to catch yet more balls.

Notably, while all cups work the same, they arent all created equal. Colored cups (e.g. blue, green and pink) produce colored balls, which are worth more. There are also cool balls like magnet balls, which as the name suggests, attract other balls which could either be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how much room is left in a cup.

And as can be expected, each level is slightly more challenging than the one before as the cups speed up. However, unlike some other games, higher levels arent impossible or frustrating, and getting an impressive score within a few hours of playing is realistic.

Speaking of realistic: aside from the stunning graphics with crisp colors and fine attention to detail, what makes 100 Balls 3D stand out is the realistic physics engine. The responsiveness is lifelike, which is important because the game is essentially based on reactions, reflexes and timing. Anything less than precision would create a sloppy gaming experience where luck was as valuable as skill.Thats definitely not the case with 100 Balls 3D.

Other 100 Balls 3D special features include:

A scoreboard that tracks best games
Leaderboard integration to compete with friends
Multiple game options, including short games (less than 5 minutes)
Exceptional music and sound effects
A pause button for those who want a break in the action

100 Balls has a loyal following of addicted fans across the world, commented Giedrius Talzunas. However, I always felt that the game could be even better and more fun if the graphics were 3D. Well, after months of hard work and testing, that dream has become a reality!

100 Balls 3D, the fun and addictive new no-cost app that tests reaction using a realistic physics engine, is available now in the App Store at

Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes Presents the Start My Show by H-Diz

Pennsauken, NJ (PRWEB) May 08, 2015

Coast 2 Coast Mixtapes announce the release of the Start My Show Music Video by H-Diz. This brand new visual project is currently available to view on the Coast 2 Coast mixtapes website.

Hailing out of Pennsauken, NJ, indie recording artist Halston Farmer, a.k.a H-Diz, is a 22yr old producer/rapper with an undeniable ability to make people move. H-Diz composes 100% original music. From his beats to his lyrics and overall style.

His video for his new single Start My Show is undoubtedly a party starter; something you definitely want to ride out to on a night out on the town. Start My Show gives you that feel good Old School vibe, mixed with with today’s Swagged out Flow.

Music was not a stranger to him as his father, Robert Farmer Sr., was a well credited DJ for many years. H-Diz started his career off in the group The Farmerboyz which included H-Diz original name “Lil H”, Dj Farmer (father), & RLF (brother). However the group image was to promote clean rap which H-Diz was capable of doing but felt as though it limited his talent. Eventually H-Diz separated from the group starting his solo career. With incredible beat making skills, H-Diz put out his first hit “Boom” ft. Ching Bing Jr. in 2012.

After getting a little buzz from the track, he teamed up with Mosiah & Dougie Moe to make the hit record “Make it Clap” in 2014.

The record was followed up by a video, which was released in early October. “Make it Clap” received 3rd place in its first Coast 2 Coast Music Video Showcase.

H-Diz also had the opportunity to be a featured artist in the Coast 2 Coast Live Artist Showcase on April 6th showcase which took home 1st place. H-Diz knew his talent was finally being heard and released another hit record “Start My Show,” which is being played on The record ranked #71 after only being on the air for one week. Following many successful records, H-Diz has received a current offer from one of Coast 2 Coast’s own Duane Darock. The road to fame has just started for the young go getter. “I am natural talent. I make my own beats and raps and turn the place upside,” says H-Diz.

Archangel from the Winters End Chronicles, A Major Steampunk Motion Picture Project, sets Funding Goal on Indiegogo

Oxford, GA (PRWEB) May 05, 2015

International crowd funding began on May 4th on Indiegogo for Archangel from the Winters End Chronicles, an exciting steampunk action adventure film from Reel Cool Entertainment and writer/director Dave Di Pietro.

The film takes place in a dark, steampunk, Victorian world of 1893 London, where a masked vigilante leads an underground resistance in an ongoing fight against a tyrannical regime, who had their sights on world domination. The project began life as a small web series, but has created quite a fan base within the steampunk and science fiction communities, said Di Pietro.

The direction of the project is to produce a 90-minute feature film, which will act as both a stand-alone motion picture and also a pilot for a possible television series. Reel Cool Entertainment feels that the timing seems perfect, since Steampunk design now even extends throughout the world into the areas of fashion, engineering, music, and for some, a lifestyle.

Di Pietro adds, The film will be shot in and around the Atlanta, Georgia area, which has become quite the mecca for motion picture and television production over the past five years. People and parties interested in funding or working on this ground-breaking project should check out the links to both the Indiegogo campaign and the official Facebook page, below.

The time is now for Archangel from the Winters End Chronicles, a film and series that will truly deliver this unique science fiction world in a vein that is new, fresh and unusual.

Vance Joy’s ‘Riptide’ Wins Grand Prize in 2014 International Songwriting Competition (ISC)

(PRWEB) May 04, 2015

Nashville, TN: The International Songwriting Competition (ISC), widely recognized as the most prestigious and respected international songwriting competition in the world, has today announced its 2014 winners. With over 18,000 entries submitted from 118 countries, a total of 345 songwriters are honored in the competition.

ISCs overall Grand Prize is awarded to Australian singer/songwriter Vance Joy for his song Riptide. It is the first time in ISCs 14-year history that any entrant has ever received perfect scores across the board. The song is being called an instant classic by both critics and fans across the world, launching Joys career with sold-out tours, worldwide chart success, and critical acclaim.

It is such an honor to win this songwriting prize, Joy said in a statement. Writing songs is what gives me a feeling of purpose. Im proud to receive this award voted on by my songwriting peers. The Grand Prize winner receives $ 25,000 in cash plus $ 45,000 in services and merchandise, including a custom-built Lowden guitar valued at over $ 11,000, a Hammond Sk1-73 Stage Keyboard, Abelton Push and Live 9 Suite, and much more.

Winners were selected by a panel of Judges which included: American Authors, Pat Metheny, Sarah McLachlan, Bastille, Avicii, Sara Evans, Keane, Casting Crowns, Darryl McDaniels (Run D.M.C), Newsboys, Wayne Shorter, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, London Grammar, Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), Gerald Casale (Devo), Dan McCarroll (President, Warner Bros.

ISC is one of the most successful ways for artists to have their music heard and recognized on not only a national scale, but also an international one, states Candace Avery, Founder and Director. The competition encourages songwriters to create, develop, and challenge their artistry by creating something truly meaningful. It is vital for all artists to be recognized for their talents, as well as to be awarded respect and validation for their accomplishments. Vance Joy exemplifies the extraordinary talent we are looking to honor.

Having already sold more than a million copies worldwide, Riptide was inspired by a motel that Joy visited as a child when he would go on family holidays down the coast of Australia, staying at a motel named Riptide. The motel became the title of this memorable song that not only has charmed the world but has also led to the explosion of Joys career. Soon to embark on a seven-month tour as the support act for pop superstar Taylor Swift, the Australian is popping up everywhere, including recently performing Riptide on the MTV Europe Music Awards in Glasgow, Scotland.

Furthermore, the songwriter took home the prestigious 2014 APRA award for Song of The Year. The track also went to #30 on Billboards Hot 100 and #1 on the Rock Airplay chart.

Created in 2002, ISC awards more than $ 150,000 in cash and prizes to winners of the competition. Winners range from amateur songwriters who are just starting their careers to professional songwriters who have years worth of experience. Previous ISC winners include Bastille, Passenger, Kate Miller-Heidke, Lindsey Stirling, Gotye, The Band Perry, Kasey Chambers, Gin Wigmore, King Charles, Kimbra, Gregory Porter, Omar Sosa, For King & Country, and many more.
