“This Moment In Time”

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, December 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — #2020 #memoriam #lost

This video is dedicated to everybody who lost a loved one in 2020. Joel Diamond, multi-platinum record producer & 2x Grammy nominee, chose this iconic song “This Moment In Time”, because of its meaningful lyric and heart tugging melody. It was also Diamond who produced the original #1 recording by Engelbert Humperdinck of “This Moment In Time”, arranged by Ron Frangipane. “This Moment In Time” was written by the same two writers, Alan Bernstein & Ritchie Adams, who wrote Engelbert’s smash hit “After The Lovin’, which Joel Diamond also produced.

Let’s look back and remember some of the familiar names we lost in 2020.

On Its 20th Anniversary Room to Read Reaffirms Its Contribution to Foundational Literacy and Gender Equality

An international non-profit organization, Room to Read’s two decades journey has only cemented its core belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children.

NEW DELHI, NEW DELHI, INDIA, December 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Room to Read, the pioneer organization in imparting quality education to underprivileged children and strengthening gender equality, is celebrating its 20th anniversary across the globe.

An international non-profit with its headquarters in San Francisco, USA, and operations across sixteen countries of Asia and Africa, Room to Read’s two decades journey has only cemented its core belief that World Change Starts with Educated Children. Its innovative model focuses on profound, systemic transformation within schools in low-income communities during two time periods that are most critical in a child’s schooling: early primary school for literacy acquisition and secondary school for girls’ education. The organization collaborates with governments and local communities to develop literacy skills and a habit of reading among primary school children and ensure girls can complete secondary school with the skills necessary to negotiate key life decisions. Since its inception in the year 2000, Room to Read has benefited nearly 20 million children worldwide.

Room to Read India is the organization’s largest area of operation, with current presence across nine states in the country. In India, the organization has benefitted over 4.3 million children and distributed more than 100 million culturally relevant age appropriate books. It hopes to reach over 10 million children by 2024, depending on government collaborations and fund availability.

Room to Read’s programs have shown high impact. Children going through its comprehensive foundational literacy program has been found to be reading three times faster and two times more comprehension/understanding by the end of grade 2, compared to other non-intervention schools. Similarly, Room to Read’s life skills inputs to girls have been proven to reduce girl’s school dropout by 20% while enhancing their skills of problem solving, decision making, relationship building and expressing agency over one’s life. These are significant achievements in view of the National Education Policy 2020’s focus on foundational learning and life skills.

This impact, and the quality of Room to Read interventions have been widely acknowledged by governments, academics, donors, teachers and the communities that it serves. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on his visit to a Room to Read supported school in Varanasi in September 2018, remarked, “Room to Read through its methods has inculcated the habit of reading and developed an interest in reading amongst children. I saw that students from early grades were able to read confidently.” Chief Ministers and Education Ministers of states like Chhattisgarh, Delhi, Telangana, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand have also visited and acknowledged the work done by Room to Read.

On the occasion to mark its 20th anniversary Sourav Banerjee, Country Director, Room to Read India remarked “I want to extend my gratitude to every member of the organization for their hard work and dedication and to all the funding partners for their support. As we set our strategy for the next five years, we are sharply focused on supporting system-level adoption and influence to build a path toward greater scale. We will continue to deliver high-quality programs at the school level and help individual girls succeed. Our aim for the next five years will be to more than double the number of children benefited in the past 20 years”.

Room to Read’s Covid response

At the onset of the global Covid pandemic, as schools shut down, Room to Read quickly pivoted its activities to reach out to its beneficiaries through distant means. To make sure little children have education continuity and maintain reading habits during pandemic, the organization developed Read Aloud videos of story books, audio activities for children and their parents, toll free IVR for story listening, and specially curated Radio and TV episodes for early grade learners. In a few states, a Mobile library van with colorful books were moved around in far flung areas with low mobile connectivity. For addressing the digital divide, a learning kit, comprising of story cards, worksheets, parent’s guide and stationeries was also provided to children.

For the girls of the Girls Education program, online life skills content was delivered over digital medium and radio/ community radio. This was supplemented through self-instructional life skill materials (newsletter, comic books) delivered both online and in physical form. Girls were also provided with reading materials, stationery and hygiene kits to meet their health and education needs, and to keep them motivated to continue with their education.

In order to keep the focus on education continuity during the pandemic and prevent children from dropping out, Room to Read launched several online and offline campaigns during this period. The ‘India Gets Reading’ campaign (Aug 15- Sept 8) focused on promoting reading among children and reached out to children, teachers and parents across nine states with physical and online books and reading materials. The ‘Har Kadam BetiKe Sang” campaign (Oct 11- Nov 30) focused on girls’ education and reached out to parents and community to pledge their support to girl’s education. The campaign used a multimedia approach and was very well received by government officials and community members. These campaigns were supplemented through various state and national level discussions and webinars to create awareness on the issues of early literacy and girl’s education respectively.

Currently Room to Read, in partnership with NDTV, is running a television campaign “Education Endures-Back to School” rallying to bring back all children to school after the pandemic.

Small But Mighty: How Richard Rossi’s Canaan Land Grew From Small Film to 2021 Oscar Consideration

Based on Richard Rossi’s Hit Novel, ‘Canaan Land’ Is an Instant Classic Religious Film For Everyone

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every now and then a film comes along that changes everything. Religious films are often stigmatized as only appropriate for a particular demographic, but a current 2021 Oscar entry is taking what is typically thought of religious films, and flipping it on its head. Based on Richard Rossi’s hit novel, Canaan Land is a feature dramatic film about a consummate charismatic con man who takes advantage of those with genuine faith. The film dramatizes the types of counterfeit tactics used by some popular televangelists today, shedding light on the truth.

Written and directed by Eternal Grace’s president, Richard Rossi, Canaan Land is a 21st Century telling of the archetypal Elmer Gantryesque story. The story follows the journey of Brother Billy (Richard Rossi), a deceitful con man who preys on the faith of congregations, and Sister Sara (Rebecca Holden), a female evangelist and singer who is indeed a sincere Christian. Contrasting the two characters brings to light the apparent differences between genuine faith, and “faith for a show” or ulterior motives designed to deceive.

The lost preacher has a true “come to Jesus moment”, as he falls for Sister Sara, realizing that his con is no longer a game, and there is much more at stake. Exploring themes of deceit, love, faith, and redemption; Canaan Land inspires each viewer to take note of the real purpose of their life and their faith.

Featuring celebrity cameos such as Lynda Carter, Cindy Williams, Sally Kirkland, Dead Kennedys, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and many more, Canaan Land is praised for being “a religious film for the rest of us”.

Through Richard Rossi’s brilliant leadership and direction, Canaan Land is truly breaking the stigma that religious films cannot be entertaining for a secular crowd, while still pursuing religious messaging.

Through proof of concept, dedication to the craft, and unwavering commitment to bridging the gap between religious and secular audiences; Richard Rossi’s purpose-driven vision has come to fruition with the end-of-year release of Canaan Land. The film was exhibited for a week of drive-in screenings in Los Angeles and Miami and will be streaming in multiple platforms within two weeks.

Voting members of the Academy of Motion Pictures for Oscar nominations are eligible to see Canaan Land free through an unlisted video link. Email a picture of your Academy I.D. to richardrossilive@gmail.com to receive the film link for your consideration for Best Picture, Director, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actress (Rebecca Holden), Best Actor (Richard Rossi), Supporting Actor (Isaac Bar-jonah), Best Supporting Actress (Jozy Pollock, Rosetta Walker), and Best Song (A Much Much Greater Love, Vagabond, Canaan Land and Street Preachin’ Man).

After fifteen years of dedicated artistic work, Russian artist Katerina Belkina released her first art book “Katerina Belkina – My Work Is My Personal Theatre”.

It has always been fascinating for me to explore the psychology of people’s relationships with each other and with the outside world, to give shape to human emotions.”

— Katerina Belkina, artist

BERLIN, GERMANY, December 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — After fifteen years of dedicated artistic work, Russian artist Katerina Belkina released her first art book entitled “Katerina Belkina – My Work Is My Personal Theatre”.

The book represents the most comprehensive survey of the artist’s work to date, equipped with high-quality photographs, curatorial texts, and an interview with the artist.

Katerina Belkina
Always striving to find the form to give a visual quality to feelings, Katerina Belkina dedicated her work to giving “shape to human emotions”. In her meticulously curated narratives, she often plays the role of the main protagonist, inviting the viewer to engage with every detail of the work. Her portraits are seldom depictions of self – they are interpretations of topics she is passionate about, from classical art to the latest technology. Growing up in south-east Russia with her artist mother, she adopted visual vocabularies of the Renaissance and socialist realism. These two concepts became the basis of Belkina’s pictorial language, a perfected display of staged, self-sufficient, powerful characters.

With such an eclectic range of interests and a perfectionist nature, Katerina Belkina chose to work in mixed media, creating her own technique that merges visual elements of painting and collage, photographic techniques, and digital tools. Inspired by everyday life, rendered through a distinctly female gaze, she creates oneiric theatrical scenes aiming to paint the energy and flow of the female-first human condition.

The publication depicts the work of Katerina Belkina and shines a light on her development as an artist. In addition to essays on Belkina’s work, the book will include an interview with the artist, in which she talks about her work and her creative practices.

About the publisher:
