Delaire Country Club Awarded Distinguished Gold Club of the World Status

Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) February 26, 2015

Delaire Country Club has been awarded the prestigious Distinguished Gold Club of the World award, as determined by the annual Distinguished Clubs of the World award program conducted by BoardRoom magazine, one of the most respected trade publications serving private clubs.

Wed like to congratulate Delaire Country Club for earning Distinguished Gold Club status, said John Fornaro, Publisher of BoardRoom magazine, Special recognition also goes out to Delaires General Manger, Trent Squire, as well as the clubs Board of Governors, its department heads, and entire staff for their efforts in providing an excellent member experience.

For fine private clubs that operate at the highest standards, BoardRoom magazines Distinguished Clubs award program uses a club-specific rating system that recognizes the club, its management, and its staff based on a proprietary criteria and evaluation process that distills and measures a clubs Member Experience. As such, the rating system used by Distinguished Clubs is different from any that has come before, and with it, the private club industry now has the means to identify the top private clubs based on the most important aspect: Member Experience.

As defined by Distinguished Clubs, Member Experience is that special combination of Qualities that a private club provides its members. It is not just the quality of service, or of the facilities, or of the product provided, it is also the quality of the staff and of the management, as well as the overall club governance they deliver. The most important quality, however, is the quality of the intangible. While difficult to measure, the latter is comprised of those magic moments experienced, the members befriended, the memorable events and famous tournaments attended, as well as the club traditions, history, and heritage proudly recognized.

Boardroom magazine developed the Distinguished Clubs of the World award program to recognize and share with the private club industry as a whole what it is that Distinguished Clubs do differently, and to do so with the specific goal of improving the Member Experience at every private club, and thereby helping to preserve the institution of private clubs for many future generations.

BoardRoom magazine is the official publication of the Association of Private Club Directors and is published in print and digital formats, and shipped to 27 countries worldwide. BoardRoom magazine is now widely viewed as the most respected and influential magazine in the private club industry.

This is the second prestigious award Delaire has received for its excellence in status and service; Delaire was previously selected as a Platinum Club of America in 2012, making it one of the top residential communities in the nation and among the top 3% of all private clubs in the country.

Seattle Theatrical Producers, Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann, Usher in New Era of Burlesque Theatre this Holiday Season

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) November 24, 2014

A new dance language has emerged in the Pacific Northwest: a theatrical blend of ballet, body, and communication with rich scripts and character development. For Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann, it is the new era of burlesque, and no one highlights it in quite the same fashion as these two burlesque superstars. This holiday season, these two will embark upon the 9th installment of their crown jewel production, “Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker” in Seattle, WA from December 11-27 – tickets are on sale now and available at

Verlaine and McCann have been creating large-scale, theatrical burlesque shows through their production company Verlaine & McCann Present, for almost ten years. Their productions are evening-length theatre experiences, with first-class costumes, original scripts, thoughtful comedic timing, thematic songs, and beautiful choreography. Verlaine, an internationally known burlesque star and trained ballet dancer, choreographs every production and her classical background is an important thread throughout every show.

I want to import the traditions of classical dance into this new-world phenomenon of burlesque, said Verlaine. Like in ballet, our dancers take on various roles and personalities during a show. We have the pleasure of working with a myriad of talented performers, and it is my job to bring the best out of each dancer and to honor their skills. I am creating work for the artists to interpret.

Verlaine and McCann Present and “Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker” were recently recognized by the Burlesque Hall of Fame when they were honored with an award for Best Small Group performance in June 2014 at the annual Las Vegas-held ceremony. Since its inception in 2006, the show has grown from eight cast members to a theatrical company of 24 cast, crew, and support staff. It has seen an 800% increase in ticket sales, and Verlaine, McCann, and their corps du burlesque are performing 33 shows in the month of December, compared to their initial four.

Our original intent in creating this show was to give people a new, theatrical experience during the holidays, said co-producer Jasper McCann. Land of the Sweets is a great example of our new dance language in burlesque; a variety of immensely talented characters working as an ensemble to create a detailed, entertaining story.

Verlaine and McCann dont see this new era of burlesque going away any time soon. On the contrary, they want to bring this dance language to an even broader audience, with their eyes set on performing off Broadway or in Las Vegas in the future.

Throughout the year, Seattleites and visitors alike can experience one of three Verlaine & McCann Present productions, including “Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker” during the holiday season, running December 11-27, 2014 in Seattle; “Through The Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland” in the Spring; and their newest concoction, “Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome” in the fall.

For more information about Lily Verlaine, Jasper McCann, and Land of the Sweets, please visit

About Verlaine & McCann

Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann met in 2005 and it was love at first sight. Their mutual obsession with musicals, bawdy women and vintage culture carried them beyond friendship and into a fruitful creative partnership, where their inexhaustible work ethic balances their lust for glamour. Now in their ninth year together, Verlaine & McCann are at the forefront of Seattle’s burlesque resurgence, producing large-scale theatrical burlesque shows that continue to push the boundaries of the form while reaching an ever-growing audience. They are the creators of Land Of The Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker; Through The Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice In Wonderland; and Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome, and have produced these trademark “Spectacles of Ecydysiastic Pageantry” throughout the Pacific Northwest.

Verlaine & McCann are proud to provide employment opportunities for dozens of dance, theatre, and music professionals, to perform for thousands of fans a year, and believe that burlesque is a place where art, entertainment, and social commentary don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

The Cleopatra Lift – A New Non Surgical Option to Aging Offered by Vancouver Physician

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) May 25, 2013

According to world-renowned scholars, Queen Cleopatra VII was one of the most beautiful and powerful women that ever lived. Cleopatras legendary beauty moved nations and her allure was felt by some of the most powerful men in her time. Cleopatra was also a scientist and used many beauty remedies to keep her skin glowing and fresh, from her legendary milk baths to wrinkle treatments made with bees- wax, maringa oil and cyprus grass.

Cleopatra was said to possess the Golden Ratio, a combination of facial measurements that evoke the most attraction and positive emotion from a human being. It is roughly defined as a face that is one and half times as long as it is wide (1 : 1.618 to be exact). This isnt that impressive on its own, until you realize that this ratio is the key to everything from encrypting computer data to the numbers of spirals on a sunflower head, our own limbs and why the Mona Lisa is so pleasing to the eye.

Other measurements are taken, but the Golden Ratio is the foundation used by many cosmetic physicians to enhance, correct and restore your facial beauty to its most appealing without giving your face an unbalanced or unnatural look.

The Cleopatra Lift at Beautiful Canadian Laser and Skin Care clinic is a combination effect of Xeomin Cosmetic and Radiesse to restore your natural features with a natural collagen lift.

Xeomin Cosmetic is the latest generation Botulinium Toxin type A treatment. Botox was the first of these types of products. Xeomin differs from Botox in one key area: it is free from the complexing proteins, hence its nickname naked Botox or pure Botox. Xeomin is equally ef- fective in reducing and relaxing wrinkles. Comparing Botox to Xeomin is like comparing Coke to Pepsi. The taste is a personal preference, but the fact remains they are both colas that are very similar. Xeomin is used in exactly the same way as traditional Botox treatments, making it easy for physicians to treat patients as the duration, dosing and so on are all very familiar to them already if they have been using Botox.

Beautiful Canadian Laser and Skin Care Clinic has been using volumizing fillers to contour facial features non-surgically and cost-effectively for many years. In addition to Xeomin, Dr Shah also uses a filler such as Radiesse to add back lost volume to facial features.

Radiesse Volumizing filler immediately provides the volume and lift needed to slow the signs of aging due to the calcium-based microspheres and gel that comprise the product. What is unique about Radiesse is that the filler itself provides a scaffold under the skin, a structure that stimulates your own collagen to grow. This process continues for several months, which extends the initial effects of Radiesse. Stimulating your natural collagen to grow gives a person a very natural lift over time that lasts a year or longer, long after the calcium microspheres have disappeared.

The Cleopatra Lift, a combination of Xeomin and Radiesse treatments, provides patients with the ultimate liquid facelift without surgery, a long-lasting treatment that combines the best of both of these procedures with minimal downtime.

New Book by James KZD Mwamba Reveals Numerical Formula for Success

CAPE TOWN, South Africa (PRWEB) July 30, 2014

Successful people, such as former South African president Nelson Mandela and current United States president Barack Obama, are often great sources of inspiration for others looking to succeed in life. James KZD Mwamba specifically focuses his new book , The Revelation of Numbers: The Codes 4 666 4, Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, and the Power of 27 (published by Trafford Publishing) on some of the most influential people of the 20th and 21st centuries, such as Mandela and Obama, to prove his discovery of a numerical formula for success.

I conceived this book by observing life and success, thinking that it may have a link to the numbers or code we are using in this world, Mwamba explains. The subject is the code 4 666 4 of Nelson Mandela and the power of 27 which I discover in humanity.

Mwamba writes of several other powerful influencers, both positive and negative, like Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Osama Bin Laden and Bob Marley. He shows the success of each and relates it back to the formula of success he has discovered; awakening readers to what he believes may be the true facts of life.

This is the first revolutionary book of the 21st century, Mwamba writes. Science and religion do not go together, but this book is one who brings them to the same table, talking one language of union and peace; science will be taught in churches and religion will be noticed by physicists. This book has no frontiers.

Pinup Girl Clothing Announces: The Magic of Mary Blair Collection by Pinup Couture

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) February 17, 2015

Pinup Girl Clothing is pleased to announce the release of THE MAGIC OF MARY BLAIR Collection by Pinup Couture, a Spring/Summer 2015 line of 1950s and 60s-style dresses and skirts that showcase illustrations from artist Mary Blair. Available exclusively through Pinup Girl Clothinga Los Angeles, California-based manufacturer, boutique, and online retailerthe collection will include Blairs original art and illustrations.

Blairactive in the 1930s through 70s, but perhaps best known by her work done for The Walt Disney Studios in the 1940s through 60screated enchanting, immersive, playful, and inventive illustrations that perfectly encapsulate the mid-century modern aesthetic in cheerful detail. Blairs whimsical use of bold graphics, juxtaposition of complementary and contrasting colors, and exuberant imaginativeness refused to be ignored in a male-dominated industry, so much that Blair prevailed in showcasing her talents across animated and live action films, advertising, clothing, greeting cards, retail window displays, theatrical sets, and childrens books. Pinup Girl Clothing is honored to partner with Mary Blairs Family Estate to spotlight Blairs accomplishments and contributions to the twentieth century with this new collection of New Look-reminiscent frocks.

Founded in 1999, Pinup Girl Clothing produces and showcases vintage-inspired garments, styled after classic 1940s, 50s, and 60s silhouettes, but with a modern woman in mind, coining the term pinup-style clothing. Headed by CEO and co-founder and Head Designer Laura Byrnes, this LA-based, predominately female-run company believes in Couture for Everybody, a movement dedicated to providing an array of womens sizes from extra small to 4X. We believe that all women deserve the right to look and feel beautiful, said Byrnes. Our clothing is made to empower women, allowing them to be the best versions of themselves.

THE MAGIC OF MARY BLAIR collection will consist of a dozen dresses and eight skirts, with all of these designs available in extra small to 4X. The collection incorporates Blairs whimsical novelty motifs of travelsuch as trains, planes, and caricatures of commutersand girlish flair like umbrellas, butterflies, kittens, lips, and roses. Some of the art included was previously used in the 1950s for handkerchiefs and scarves manufactured for Carol Stanley Studios, New York. The collection will also showcase one of Blairs personal artworks depicting a mother embracing her child. These designs will be incorporated as all-over and border prints on classic Pinup Couture designs, including the flirty and famed 1960s-style Jenny Dress which features adjustable straps and a gathered full skirt, the stunning 1950s-style Heidi Dress, which showcases a sweetheart neckline, covered belt, and flattering swing skirt, and the sleek and sexy Evangeline Dress, a fitted, wiggle-style style making its debut in this collection.

This collection is a dream come true for Pinup Girl Clothing, muses the companys Creative Director and Assistant Designer, Micheline Pitt, who employed her own artistic talents in bringing Blairs designs to life. I started my career in animationfrequently the only woman in roomand Mary is my idol. She accomplished so much, refused to be overlooked in a male-dominated world, and stands out as inspiration for all graphic designers, illustrators, innovators, and dreamers today.

“The Mary Blair Family Estate is thrilled to be associated with this exciting project, said Blairs nieces, Jeanne Chamberlain and Maggie Richardson. Fashion played an important role in Mary’s lifeher look often taking center stage as she entered a room. She would be so proud to know that the magical designs she created so many decades ago have become timeless, multi-generational, and universally loved. And, she would have delighted in working alongside the dynamic and uniquely creative feminine energy that is Pinup Girl Clothing. This new collection not only captures Mary Blair’s art beautifully and boldly, as Mary painted it, but it also captures the whimsical spirit behind the artthat makes us all smile.”

The line will be available online at and in the companys flagship store, Pinup Girl Boutique (3606 Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, CA 91505). The first look at the entire collection of garments will be available on in March, with an in-store and online launch of the entire collection by the end of April. The final pieces will be made available on Monday, April 27, 2015 on their online storefront with a launch party at their Burbank Boutique on Saturday, April 25, 2015 before their annual Pinup Parade in the Park event at Disneyland on Sunday, April 26, 2015.


Mary Blair, born October 21, 1911, in McAlester, Oklahoma as Mary Browne Robinson, was an artist, illustrator, and graphic designer whose influential career spanned five decades. Blairs oeuvre includes works incorporated into animated and live action films, advertising, clothing, greeting cards, retail window displays, theatrical sets, and childrens books. Blair is perhaps best known for her work at the Walt Disney Studios in the 1940s through 60s, where she provided color styling and art direction for Cinderella (1950), Alice in Wonderland (1951), and Peter Pan (1953), as well as serving as creative lead for theme park attraction its a small world.

Blairs family settled in Morgan Hill, California in the 1920s, after which Blair attended San Jose State College, majoring in fine arts with the intention of becoming a teacher. During her time at San Jose State College, Blair won a scholarship to the Chouinard Art Institute in Los Angeles, where she was mentored by legendary illustrator Pruett Carter and met her husband, Lee Blair. Chouinard also touts pop artist Ed Ruscha, cartoon artist Chuck Jones, costume designer Edith Head, and numerous Disney animators and art directors as graduates. Later, the school merged with the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music to become California Institute of the Arts under the guidance of Walt and Roy Disney.

After husband Lee Blair was hired by Walt Disney Studios as color supervisor for Pinocchio in 1938, Mary reluctantly joined the Disneys Character Model department in May 1940. Under the supervision of Joe Grant, Mary created watercolor concept art for Dumbo (1941) and Lady and the Tramp (1955). In 1941, the US government sent a group of Disney animators, along with Walt and Lillian Disney, to South America as part of President Roosevelts Good Neighbor policy. Lee was invited to join the group and Mary asked Walt Disney directly if she could be included in the delegation. During this trip, Marys work transformed from murky, serious studies, to lively, vivid, imaginative landscapes and studies of South American people. Walt Disney took special notice to Marys capabilities, and soon began to utilize her for more projects.

During her time at Disney, Blair worked on Saludos Amigos (1942), Three Caballeros (1945), Song of the South (1946), Make Mine Music (1946), Melody Time (1948), So Dear to My Heart (1948), Cinderella (1950), Alice in Wonderland (1951), and Peter Pan (1953). In February 1953, Mary departed from Disney and began taking up freelance illustration and graphic design opportunities. She provided illustrations for Nabisco, Johnson & Johnson, Beatrice Foods, Maxwell House, Pall Mall, and others. She illustrated childrens books, including five Golden Books titles: Babys House (1950), I Can Fly (1950), The Golden Book of Little Verses (1953), The New Golden Song Book (1955), and The Up and Down Book (1964). I Can Fly remained in print for more than sixty years. Later, in 1967 she served as color designer for How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying (1967).

After a decade away from Disney, Walt Disney asked Mary to provide creative lead on an attraction for the 1964 New
