Mental Illness: New Study Explores Link with Creativity; NAMI Events Include Music, Drama and Other Arts

Mental Illness: New Study Explores Link with Creativity; NAMI Events Include Music, Drama and Other Arts

WASHINGTON, June 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) is focusing on films, music and other creative arts this week--at the same time that a new scientific study has found a possible explanation for the link between mental illness and uninhibited processing in the brain that allows people to think "outside the box."

In "Beautiful Minds: Creativity and Mental Illness" appearing in the latest issue of NAMI's Advocate e-magazine, NAMI highlights a Swedish study and other research exploring potential links between schizophrenia and artistic tendencies.

The Swedish study shows that highly creative people have a lower density of dopamine receptors in the thalamus. People living with schizophrenia also have been found to have low dopamine density. Other studies suggest that a genetic difference may be shared by creative people and those with psychotic symptoms.

In NAMI's weekly blog, NAMI Executive Director Michael Fitzpatrick discusses creativity as a "powerful" means for education about mental illness. In fact, "creativity is required by anyone whose life is touched by mental illness" in order to enhance education, support and recovery.

The 2010 NAMI Convention opening this week in Washington, D.C. includes many artistic elements, including a performance by Grammy-award-winning singer Susan McKeown. On Friday evening, award-winning poet and songwriter Michael Mack will perform portions of Speaking in Tongues, about his mother's life with schizophrenia.

The Free at Last Players, a theatre troupe now in their 20th year, will speak openly in skits and songs about their experiences with mental illness and different forms of stigma and exclusion.

National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month also begins this week and the NAMI Advocate "Bookshelf" feature recommends reading the newly-published novel Try to Remember by Iris Gomez as "a wonderful way" to observe it. Set in Miami in the 1970s, the book portrays a family's struggle with mental illness from a Latino perspective. Their teenage holds them together in the face of her father's battle with schizophrenia.. Fewer than one in 20 Latino immigrants with mental illness ever get help.

NAMI is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness.

OOOii (Open Interface), Future-Tech Designers of Minority Report and Star Trek, Have Announced 'Experience Proximity,' a Breakthrough Interactive and Immersive Advertising Technology

OOOii (Open Interface), Future-Tech Designers of Minority Report and Star Trek, Have Announced 'Experience Proximity,' a Breakthrough Interactive and Immersive Advertising Technology

* At the 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, OOOii debuted 'Experience Proximity,' a new suite of interactive advertising products that will change the way companies engage, inform and delight their customers. *

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- During the 2010 Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, the future technology designers from OOOii introduced the world to their latest endeavor, called "Experience Proximity" - the future of interactive advertising billboards and signage. Going beyond the capabilities of large format video displays, OOOii is taking a giant leap into the future with Experience Proximity, a suite of technology products for out-of-home advertising, retail locations, and environmental displays. OOOii Creative Director Kent Demaine explains, "With Experience Proximity, the audience doesn't just watch what's happening, they interact with what they see and become part of the experience." Along with cinematic quality video effects, embedded cameras in the display units capture information about the viewer that is utilized to register real-time 3D content with the surrounding environment, resulting in a mixed reality, window-like viewing experience.

During the Experience Proximity demonstration at Cannes, it was clear to see the potential for this new technology as Mr. Demaine interacted with a 3D movie poster using full body gesture interaction to control rich internet content, to interact with the animated character on screen and finally to drive a full micro-gaming experience based on a battle sequence from the film. This proof of concept was an amazing display of what advertising and retail industries can look forward to in the near future, helping them build more engaging branding opportunities.

About OOOii:

OOOii specializes in future technology design and information visualization for the advertising and feature film industries. Their work has been featured in: Minority Report, Star Trek, The Island, MI:3 and many others. Advertising clients include: Apple, Sony, Electronic Arts, Jaguar, Anheuser-Busch and many more. OOOii's latest technology for advertisers and retailers called "Experience Proximity" brings cinematic information visualization out of the theatre and into the world using spatial augmented reality techniques and natural human-computer interaction. The goal of this technology is to create functional, memorable and emotional experiences between consumers and brands.

'Twilight' Fever Brings Cybercriminals Out of the Woodwork

'Twilight' Fever Brings Cybercriminals Out of the Woodwork

Norton Reports 'Twilight' Search Results Are Being Poisoned

CULVER CITY, Calif., June 30 /PRNewswire/ --
The third installment of the "Twilight" franchise is breaking
records for a midnight opening and legions of fans are
searching for any details about the film they can find
online. Cyber criminals know this and have already "poisoned"
common search results hoping to gain access to people's
computers and infect them with malicious software
WHAT/WHY: ("Malware").

Some common search results are already returning more than 50
percent malicious results - meaning that you've got more than
a 50/50 chance of clicking on a link that can put viruses,
keylogging programs (where criminals can monitor everything
you type), and other nasty things on your computer that can
cause no end of trouble!

Top search terms that are likely to be poisoned include:
--"Twilight New Moon Eclipse Wikipedia" (53 percent
-- "Twilight Eclipse Wiki" (39 percent malicious)
--"How Long Is Eclipse The Movie going to be" (28 percent

Norton has seen a spike in these poisoned search results over
the last 24 hours, and experts expect even more
"Twilight"-related poison search results, scams and spam as
the movie gains momentum.

Response experts are on hand to share tips with users on how
they can protect themselves from "Twilight"-related threats
EXPERTS: online, including:

-- Nude pictures of Rob Pattinson sound too good to be true?
They are! - Cybercriminals use sensational headlines to get
you to click on their poisoned links. Better to delete e-
mails and ignore search results from people and sites you
don't know - no matter what they're promising.
--Don't let attacks take you by surprise -Use a reputable
online security software to let you know when you're about to
click on a link that's poisoned.
--Browsing social networking sites while standing in line? -
Don't assume links and videos posted by friends on social
networking sites are safe - use a site such as Norton Safe
Web to make sure sites don't contain any malicious elements
before you click on them.

Screenshots of search results, showing how many - and which -

MIT Museum's Polaroid Exhibit to Feature Exclusive Lady Gaga Polaroid Photograph; Bobby Sager Announced as Polaroid's New Chairman

MIT Museum's Polaroid Exhibit to Feature Exclusive Lady Gaga Polaroid Photograph; Bobby Sager Announced as Polaroid's New Chairman

Polaroid Celebrates Its Legacy, Reinvention and Vision Toward the Future

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Polaroid today gathered at the MIT Museum to celebrate the brand's rich 73-year history and bright future. Polaroid presented an exclusive photo of Lady Gaga, Polaroid's Creative Director, to the MIT Museum that will become a part of the Polaroid artifacts at the museum, while naming Bobby Sager as Chairman of the Board for Polaroid.

"The Polaroid artifacts are of major significance to the MIT Museum not only for its intrinsic technical and historical value, but because of Dr. Edwin Land's strong connections with MIT," said Deborah Douglas, the MIT Museum's curator of science and technology. "Our present display celebrates this extraordinary gift but we are already beginning plans to showcase the artifacts in a way that not only explains the technology, but also will feature the personal stories about the people who developed and used these amazing innovations, including Lady Gaga and her role as Polaroid's new Creative Director."

Merging Polaroid's past with its future, the iconic Polaroid 20x24 inch view camera captured the image of Polaroid's Creative Director Lady Gaga taking in inspiration for her upcoming product line at the MIT Museum. The Polaroid 20x24 inch view camera is part of the 10,000 Polaroid artifacts that the new owners of Polaroid donated to the MIT Museum in May 2010.

"Polaroid stands for the iconic magic of instant photography, while continuing to evolve and adapt to evolving technology," said Bobby Sager, Polaroid's Chairman of the Board. "We are committed to honoring Polaroid's heritage by delivering new products that embody the simplicity, innovation and fun that Polaroid has always represented."

Lady Gaga's recent appointment as Polaroid's Creative Director is the first of many corporate objectives toward developing the new and exciting products - introducing Polaroid to a new generation. Earlier today, Lady Gaga presided over a product design and development session for future Polaroid products. Today's session is a milestone in the road to developing Lady Gaga's co-branded Polaroid products that blend fashion, technology and photography.

"Bobby Sager not only brings leadership, creativity and vision to Polaroid, but a true passion for guiding the brand into the future and preserving its rich history," said Stephen Miller, CEO of Polaroid and Principal and Managing Director of Gordon Brothers Group. "A photographer and philanthropist by heart, Bobby will play a pivotal role in expanding the Polaroid experience and connecting Polaroid to his numerous charities around the world."

The MIT Museum announced preliminary plans to unveil a large scale exhibit based on the full Polaroid artifacts to the public in 2013. The artifacts range from original newsprint sketches by Polaroid founder Edwin H. Land to SX-70 cameras that defined the instant photography era to every make and model of commercially produced Polaroid cameras.

"Polaroid is proud to continue the tradition of supporting and drawing inspiration from the creative community," said Eric Kaup, CEO of Hilco Consumer Capital. "Celebrating Polaroid's legacy and planning for its promising future, MIT provided the ideal setting for today's creative session with Lady Gaga."

The Polaroid brand's new owners, Gordon Brothers and Hilco Consumer Capital are building on the value of Polaroid's 73 year heritage with a family of best in class partners for product development, marketing, distribution and licensing.

About Polaroid

Across several generations, people regard Polaroid as one of the most trusted, well-respected and recognizable brands when it comes to instant photography. The Polaroid story began more than seventy years ago with polarized sunglasses, evolved into instant film, cameras, and camera accessories, as well as other consumer electronics categories. People can expect to see new Polaroid branded products that will deliver the fun, instant gratification and value for which the brand has long stood.

National Association of Black Journalists Letter to Cable News Executives

National Association of Black Journalists Letter to Cable News Executives

WASHINGTON, June 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following letter was released today by the National Association of Black Journalists:

Dear Cable News Executives:

It is 2010, but the National Association of Black Journalists sees our cable news networks moving backward when it comes to who they believe is worthy of anchoring prime-time news shows.

NABJ was founded in 1975 to encourage news media companies to hire and to promote more Black journalists. At that time, black journalists originally hired to cover riots during the turbulent 1960s found they were not being assigned to other meaningful beats or were only allowed to cover "Black" stories.

NABJ's advocacy for fair hiring practices paid off. Many of our founders, including columnists Les Payne in New York and DeWayne Wickham in Washington, D.C., and anchor Maureen Bunyan in Washington, D.C. remain prominent figures in the media.

NABJ continues this advocacy today. To be candid, we have been focusing our talks with media executives on ways they can increase the diversity of their news management teams. It is our belief that a diverse management team improves coverage decisions and hiring practices. It seems, though, that the companies have taken that to mean that we don't care about who is on the air. We're watching, and we do.

Over the past several years, NABJ Executive Board members have met with leaders of the top media companies. Our message: "Let us help if you are looking for diverse talent."

Some of the companies have reached out, but the names we have submitted never seem to be called in for interviews.

Three years ago, Ebony magazine's Kevin Chappell noted, "While CNN has the most Black news anchors with eight, the other cable networks don't (fare) as well... and none of the national cable stations has any Blacks in prime-time slots."

Nothing has changed. NABJ questions CNN's decision to hire former New York governor/attorney general Eliot Spitzer to co-host a new show in Campbell Brown's old time slot. The company missed another opportunity to place a person of color in prime time. It just seems that cable news can never find diverse candidates who are good enough to meet their standards. We want to know your standards.

Are you telling us that CNN could find no one better than an ex-politician who quit being New York governor after consorting with prostitutes to grace America's living rooms each night?

CNN does have Tony Harris anchoring in the morning, and Fredricka Whitfield, T.J. Holmes, and Don Lemon on the weekends. But that's not prime time. The same can be said about MSNBC which last week named veteran Lawrence O'Donnell as the anchor of its new 10 p.m. show. The prime-time host line-up at Fox News also lacks any racial diversity.

"In his story, Chappell talked with NABJ Member and CBS News anchor Russ Mitchell who summed up what many of us have witnessed over the years. Mitchell told Ebony "I've been to journalism conferences over and over again, and heard some executive say 'I'd like to hire more African-Americans, but I just can't find any qualified ones out there.' That was b.s. then, and that's b.s. now."

NABJ couldn't agree more.

LOS ANGELES, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- JoJo Wright, host of the nationally syndicated "JoJo on the Radio," announced today the launch of Make it Wright with JoJo, a summer-long initiative in which he will lend a hand to a different cause every weekday this summer, beginning Tuesday, July 6. Starting today, JoJo is officially asking his friends, fans, followers and listeners, as well as any organizations looking for his support, to get in touch via Twitter and Facebook to suggest deserving causes.

"I was thinking about getting involved with one charity this summer," said Wright, "and then I thought, 'why pick just one?' There are a crazy number of organizations out there doing great things, and I want to help. I'm just one guy, but I'm looking forward to making whatever difference I can, and inspiring others to do the same."

The daily installments of Make it Wright with JoJo will require anywhere from a few minutes to an entire day of JoJo's time. Whether he is heading down to the local food bank, tweeting a link to an upcoming event, or jumping out of an airplane to raise awareness for cancer research, JoJo's goal is to lead by example, and ultimately encourage people to give back to their community - even if it means just taking a few minutes a day to help support an organization doing great things.

If each of JoJo's more than 25,000 Twitter followers were to spend just five minutes of one day doing something for their community, that would amount to more than 2080 hours of service, or the equivalent of one person working full-time (40 hours/week) for an entire year.

Make it Wright with JoJo is kicking off with a diverse schedule of activities and partnerships including:

-- The Awards airing on VH1 July 19, which recognize the
best young world-changers, 25 and under.
-- Tweeting about items from the Television Academy Foundation's
Primetime Emmy Season Online Auction that begins July 22 to benefit
the Foundation's educational programs.
-- Leap for Life for LIVESTRONG - JoJo will take his commitment to
service to new heights by jumping from a plane on August 22 to help
support Lance Armstrong's cancer charity.

Though JoJo won't be able to do everything, there are still plenty of unclaimed days in Make it Wright with JoJo, so he is asking for his fans and worthy organizations around the world to tell him what great causes need his attention. Anyone interested in JoJo's support is invited to get in touch by making a comment on his Facebook page, replying to @JoJoWright on Twitter with the hash tag #MakeitWright, and encouraging their friends and supporters to do the same.

Comcast and One Economy Honor Latin American Youth Center Students Graduating from Comcast Digital Connectors Program

Comcast and One Economy Honor Latin American Youth Center Students Graduating from Comcast Digital Connectors Program

Innovative Program Teaches Washington, D.C. Area Youth Digital Literacy and Leadership Skills

WASHINGTON, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast and One Economy recently recognized a class of 17 graduates from the Comcast Digital Connectors program in Washington, D.C. at a special ceremony held on Friday, June 11 at the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC). The Comcast Digital Connectors program in Washington, D.C., which launched in July of 2009, provided LAYC youth from diverse, low-income backgrounds with an opportunity to learn about broadband technologies and how to put that knowledge to work in a wide range of community service activities.

Among those celebrating the accomplishments of the graduates at the event were LAYC and Comcast leaders and staff, representatives from One Economy, parents and family members of the Digital Connectors graduates and members of the greater LAYC community. In addition to certificates of recognition, each student received a netbook computer and flip camera.

"One Economy believes that by delivering the power of technology and information to low-income people we can help build better lives," said Karla Ballard, vice president of social innovations for One Economy. "Our partnership with Comcast for the Digital Connectors program is helping us to deliver upon that mission by providing youth with access to the tools and skills needed to achieve their full potential and to serve as technology ambassadors throughout their communities."

"The Digital Connectors program is an important initiative for Comcast as we continue to seek out opportunities to educate young people about civic engagement and instill in them the leadership and technology skills that are so essential to their futures," said Fred Graffam, regional senior vice president of Comcast. "We are proud to honor these students for their initiative and commitment."

"The Comcast Digital Connectors program has not only supplied our students with resources to help them succeed in a digital workforce, but has given them the confidence to share what they've learned with their neighbors, friends and families," said Lori Kaplan, executive director of LAYC. "The Comcast Digital Connectors program has made a tremendous impact on its young participants and the community overall. We are grateful to Comcast and One Economy for helping us provide young people in D.C. a chance to improve the quality of life for themselves and those around them through digital education and look forward to our continued partnership."

The Comcast Digital Connectors program in Washington, D.C. took place during after-school hours and students could choose to participate in either the Technology Group or Media Group. As part of the program, participants also volunteered their time at community-based organizations, senior centers, churches and even in their own homes to help improve digital literacy.

The Technology Group had eight LAYC student graduates and focused on learning to work with software and hardware. Activities included leadership exercises and computer technology classes that involved Microsoft Office Certification, web design, computer repair fundamentals, video editing, photography and more. Participants also attended a tour of the U.S. Capitol, participated in workshops, helped to build the Computer Lab at the LAYC Teen Center, taught computer classes in their local communities and participated in Comcast Cares Day, the company's annual, nationwide day of service.

The Media Group had nine LAYC student graduates and focused on using media and broadband technology to make a positive impact in the community. Activities included leadership and teamwork skills development; an introduction to digital media fundamentals including video, audio, photography, graphic manipulation and blogging; and extensive exploration of media and technology's impact on the community and the concept of socially engaged media. Participants shared their media skills with other local students and produced an hour-long bilingual radio special about teens and drug abuse as well as an official video submission to the Human Rights Film Festival. Five of the students were selected to receive the Eric Moe Scholarship to attend the Mountainfilm Festival in recognition of their commitment to socially engaged media making.

One Economy founded the Digital Connectors' program and curriculum in 2003. Today there are youth engaged in Digital Connectors programs throughout the United States as well as similar digital literacy initiatives in Ethiopia, Rwanda, Kenya, Cameroon and Nigeria. The One Economy-Comcast partnership aims to double the number of participants in the program and the hours of service they contribute to their communities.

In addition to Washington D.C., the Comcast Digital Connectors program was launched in Houston, Texas; Springfield, Massachusetts; Morgantown, West Virginia; Burlington, Vermont; Tallahassee, Florida and Miami, Florida. Other sites expected to kick off by the end of 2010 include: West Palm Beach, Florida; Lauderhill, Florida; Hanford, California; Dearborn, Michigan; Denver, Colorado; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Atlanta, Georgia; Tacoma, Washington; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; Chicago, Illinois; Portland, Oregon; and others to be determined.

In each location, groups of young people, ages 14 to 21 from diverse, low-income backgrounds will learn digital literacy skills over one year in both after-school and summer training programs. The curriculum for the Comcast Digital Connectors program is designed to introduce core leadership values and life management skills, teach basic and advanced digital literacy skills, and expose youth to post-secondary and career choices.

Comcast powers dreams in the communities it serves by providing access to innovative technology, volunteering time, giving financial support and partnering with organizations to make its communities stronger. Comcast focuses its community investment initiatives on building tomorrow's leaders, promoting community service and expanding digital literacy.

Daniel Pearl Foundation Issues Call for Musicians Worldwide to Join in the 9th Annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days to be Held October 1 - 31

Daniel Pearl Foundation Issues Call for Musicians Worldwide to Join in the 9th Annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days to be Held October 1 - 31

LOS ANGELES, June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The Daniel Pearl Foundation today issued a call for musicians around the world to join in "Harmony for Humanity" by participating in the 9th Annual Daniel Pearl World Music Days which will be held October 1 - 31, 2010.

Every October for the past eight years, thousands of professional and amateur musicians from every musical genre have dedicated their performances around their common humanity inspired by the legacy of journalist/musician Daniel Pearl, the Wall Street Journal South Asia Bureau Chief, who was kidnapped and murdered by terrorists in Pakistan shortly after 9/11. Centered around Danny's October birthday, participating musicians commemorate his life and work by using the universal language of music to spread a message of hope that brings people together in a united stand for peace and against the culture of violence. Since World Music Days' inception in 2002, more than 4,900 concerts in 102 countries have been dedicated.

World Music Days is an awareness-raising initiative that involves no cost to participate, nor is it a fundraising event. Musicians are invited to log on to and register their already existing or specially planned October performances, and then make a brief dedication at their event from the stage or in the printed program in support of the theme of "Harmony for Humanity." Daniel Pearl World Music Days website features an interactive world map with all participating events, and allows artists to promote their events and music via individual Artist Profile Pages, which feature bios, photos and videos, as well as links to artist websites and social networking pages.

"Danny was a talented musician who joined musical groups in every community he visited. He firmly believed in the power of music to unite people," said Judea and Ruth Pearl, parents of Daniel Pearl and Co-Founders of the Daniel Pearl Foundation. "Musicians can simply dedicate a song or entire performance from stage or in the printed program to inspire their audiences with the inevitable triumph of humanity over hate and violence."

"Last year, artists at more than 1,550 concerts in 79 countries took part in this global initiative," said World Music Days' Program Director Paul Karlsen. "We also welcome Tribute Events that take place the other eleven months during the year, and offer an alternative way to participate for those who might not have any scheduled performances during October and would like to be part of this program."

The Daniel Pearl World Music Days Honorary Committee includes Sir Elton John, Itzhak Perlman, Herbie Hancock, R.E.M., Zubin Meta, Alison Krauss, Matisyahu, Steve Reich, Ravi Shankar, Mark O'Connor among other distinguished musicians. The full list is featured at our website.

The Daniel Pearl Foundation was formed in 2002 in memory of journalist/musician Daniel Pearl to promote the ideals that inspired his life and work. It works domestically and internationally to promote dialogue and understanding, to counter cultural and religious hatred, to encourage responsible and balanced journalism, and to promote peace through music.
