The Journey Fashion Festival puts on a spectacular show closing out NYFW with a night to remember filled with arial artists, dancers, models and a Pharaoh.

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, September 17, 2018 / — The Journey Fashion Festival put on a spectacular show going beyond the usual constraint of New York Fashion Week with an experience that had the audience as well as photographers on the risers visibly excited. The show played with every emotion, from suspense to tears, to excitement and laughter. This was a fashion show like no other. The show took place at Peter Norton Symphony Space, in the renowned Peter Jay Sharp Theatre on Broadway, seating over 700 guests, featuring aerial artists, international designers, models, performers, Alvin Ailey Dancers, sponsors, and global brands from countries worldwide, promoting the message that “inclusion” is the way forward.

"In a world of unrest and uncertainty, the need to stand together and create a world of inclusion and diversity has never been more prevalent. The Journey Fashion Festival’s mission is to make brands from around the world accessible to all, being inclusive, creating opportunities outside of the normal fashion realm, and produce entertaining shows with a large appeal. Using my proprietary show format and a cooperative vibe, brands show their individual collections while being part of a larger vision interacting on a global level that transcends Fashion Week," says Malena Belafonte, the founder and creative director of The Journey Fashion Festival. "The show concept is something I came up with years ago, and only launched once I felt the fashion industry was ready to embrace it. Multiple designers show their newest collections in a collaborative yet individual format while incorporating some of the most sought after dancers, singers, performers, and cirque artists in an entertaining and creatively curated performance geared for both the runway and the stage. Where else can a designer of exclusive and fabulous sunglasses like YEROC by Corey Woods incorporate a drawbridge, the pyramids, 80 models in chains only to upstage them all by entering as a pharaoh and twirl the entire length of our 80 foot runway," says Malena Belafonte.

Designers YEROC by Corey Woods, Henry Picado Men, Este & Chlo, Egami Collection, Minan Wong, Maryam Al-Bouanin, Helen Sanchez, Layer 8, GatitoSucio and others showed their newest collections. Cirque artist Kris Olness created a suspenseful opening, National Dance Institute featured a pas de deux by Sarafina Belafonte and Jonathan Rosario choreographed by Christopher D'amboise, Alvin Ailey dancer Hannah Richardson put on an amazing performance, and Malena Belafonte wooed the audience with a sexy opening act while focus was put on the importance of getting checked for breast cancer through the brand Got Checked. Hair and Make up was created by Marcello Costa. Designers, brands, and sponsors came from countries around the world such as Qatar, Brazil, Costa Rica, Italy, Norway, China, Denmark, Colombia, Botswana, Liberia, UK, USA, and Barbados to name a few.

Guests included press, photographers, VIPs, editors, buyers, influencers, and other fashion insiders. VIPs were treated to make-up and hair by Marcello Costa, cupcakes by Yolanda's Sweets, cocktails by Bar Talia, gifts by Madame Paulette and others, while roaming around the brand lounges. Sponsors included The Alex Salem Team, Douglas Elliman, Wells Fargo, Mercedes Club, Sennheiser, CPW Vein & Aesthetic Center, Marcello Costa, and more.

The Journey Fashion Festival is produced by Malena and David Belafonte.

Inmedix welcomes Leonard H. Calabrese, DO, Professor of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic, to its Scientific Advisory Board.

Assessing the linkage between stress and immune function strengthened by this new collaboration.

I cannot overstate the importance of Dr. Calabrese joining the Inmedix Scientific Advisory Board.”

— Andrew J Holman MD, CEO, Inmedix

NORMANDY PARK, WA, USA, September 17, 2018 / — In its continuing effort to define immuno-autonomics affecting patients with autoimmune disease, Inmedix today announced the addition of Leonard H. Calabrese, DO, FACR, to its elite Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). Dr. Calabrese is Professor of Medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine at Case Western Reserve University, Vice Chairman of the Department of Rheumatic and Immunological Diseases, Co-director of the Center for Vasculitis Care and Research, and Director of the RJ Fasenmyer Center for Clinical Immunology at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.

“I am excited to engage with Inmedix in their effort to advance the science of neuroimmunology for patients with immune-mediated inflammatory diseases,” said Dr. Calabrese.

On the Inmedix SAB, Dr. Calabrese joins two past-Presidents of the American College of Rheumatology, Michael Weinblatt MD (Harvard University) and James O’Dell MD (University of Nebraska), and other leading international rheumatologists, including Mark Genovese MD (Stanford University), Vibeke Strand MD (Stanford University), Edward Keystone MD (University of Toronto), Daniel Furst MD (University of Washington, University of Florence, Italy and UCLA), Robert Ettlinger MD, (WIRB), Ernest Choy MD (Cardiff University) and Peter Taylor MD PhD (University of Oxford).

Immuno-autonomics is the interface between the immune system and stress, modulated within the brain by the autonomic nervous system (ANS). Patients with autoimmune disease have long noted that stress significantly affects their disease activity and response to treatment. Dr. Calabrese is an internationally recognized leader in HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C research. He has also championed the importance of stress in the setting of an autoimmune disease and has promoted mitigating wellness strategies to reduce the adverse effect of stress on patients.

“I cannot overstate the importance of Dr. Calabrese joining the Inmedix Scientific Advisory Board,” said Andrew J Holman MD, Co-founder and CEO of Inmedix, Inc. and Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of Washington. “His leadership will be invaluable to guide immuno-autonomic research and explore potential applications to help patients with autoimmune diseases.”

About Inmedix, Inc. and its subsidiary, Inmedix UK, Ltd.

Seattle-based biotech/medtech Inmedix, Inc. and its subsidiary Inmedix UK, Ltd. are committed to engaging in world class research to discover innovative solutions for pressing healthcare needs related to the impact of stress, modulated within the brain by the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The Inmedix ANS Neuroscan™ is leading applications of next-generation heart rate variability (HRV) as an informative diagnostic, therapeutic, digital health and health economic tool in autoimmune disease. ANS profile may be the most overlooked element of personalized, precision medicine. Beginning with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) and ankylosing spondylitis (AS) in adults, the company hopes to enhance current therapeutic outcomes through complimentary optimization of individual ANS profile.

Australian biotech Dimerix now recruiting patients: Diabetic Kidney Disease & orphan kidney scarring phase 2 trial

Dimerix seeks to replicate compelling data seen in initial phase 2 clinical trial of potential kidney disease therapy DMX-200.

Dimerix (ASX:DXB)

With DMX-200, Dimerix has the potential to deliver a first-in-class treatment… extending the time before a patient requires dialysis or even avoiding dialysis completely if caught early enough.”

— Dr Nina Webster, Dimerix CEO

MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA, September 17, 2018 / — • Trial sites in Victoria and NSW now recruiting for both studies, a further eight sites to open in coming weeks across Queensland, Victoria and NSW
• Study 1: Phase 2b Diabetic Kidney Disease patient trial to further investigate compelling outcomes of DMX-200 in an initial phase 2a trial last year
• Study 2: Phase 2a Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis patient trial to investigate the potential of DMX-200 in treating the orphan kidney disease

Australian biotech Dimerix has announced that it has started recruiting patients for a further two phase 2 clinical trials of its kidney disease treatment, DMX-200, with these studies focused specifically on the drug’s therapeutic effects on Diabetic Kidney Disease and the orphan condition Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis.

The Phase 2b trial focused on Diabetic Kidney Disease will recruit around 40 patients and seek to replicate compelling data seen in an initial phase 2a ‘all comers’ trial completed last year involving patients diagnosed broadly with Chronic Kidney Disease.

The Focal Segmental Glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) Phase 2a study will recruit around 10 patients and seek to demonstrate a proof of principle to enable DMX-200 to proceed into further development for the orphan disease. DMX-200 has already been granted orphan drug designation for FSGS in the US.

Renal Research in Gosford, NSW and the Austin Hospital in Melbourne began recruiting patients this week for both studies, with a further eight sites to open over the next two months across Melbourne, Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane.

The studies will investigate DMX-200’s effects on the AT1R and CCR2 Targets for Inflammatory Nephrosis and have been titled ACTION. Both trials will be randomised, double blind placebo-controlled, crossover trials in which all participants are certain to receive DMX-200 for one of two treatment periods.

Dimerix CEO, Dr Nina Webster, said, “Patients with kidney disease face a progressive decline that often results in end-stage renal diseases, requiring dialysis and/or kidney transplant. With DMX-200, Dimerix has the potential to deliver a first-in-class treatment to many of these patients in need, extending the time before a patient requires dialysis or even avoiding dialysis completely if caught early enough.

“Dimerix, and our medical advisory team, are impressed by the clinical data we have seen for DMX-200 to date and are pleased to see DMX-200 move back in the clinic to expand on these encouraging patient responses. We have placed great emphasis on robust trial designs, which give us the best chance of giving patients a new therapy to try and of ensuring accurate detection of an efficacy signal in both trials to meet the clinical endpoints. These studies should be attractive to patients and I hope to report outcomes in late 2019.”

Diabetic Kidney Disease, one of many types of chronic kidney disease, is caused by diabetes with indicators such as reduced kidney function and the presence of the protein albumin in the urine (proteinuria). Kidney Health Australia states that around 10% of people with diabetes develop early signs of kidney disease in the first 10 years after being diagnosed, and between 20-30% of people with diabetes will develop kidney disease by 20 years after being diagnosed [1]. According to the organisation, people with kidney disease have a greater risk of cardiac death than those without it.

Effective treatment is important because, when managed appropriately, the otherwise inevitable deterioration in kidney function can be reduced by as much as 50%[1,2]. Kidney disease is also recognised as a huge cost to healthcare systems; as a patient’s condition deteriorates they eventually require blood dialysis, which costs close to AUD$100,000 per annum per patient[2].

DMX-200 tackles kidney disease by co-administering a safe anti-inflammatory drug, propagermanium, to the standard of care treatment, irbesartan. The patent protected and unique combination of these two drugs works synergistically to block the signals that cause inflammation, which is a major contributor to the disease’s progression [3].

Dimerix developed DMX-200 using its proprietary Receptor HIT platform, which identifies pairs of different receptors that function in a joint manner when modulated by ligands, small molecule drugs, peptides or antibodies. In the clinical trial completed in 2017, DMX-200 was shown to improve the outcome of Chronic Kidney Disease in patients by reducing proteinuria (abnormal quantities of protein in the urine) by more than 50 per cent in 25% of patients Furthermore, in the sub-group of patients with type 2 diabetes, there was a clinical and significant average (mean) fall of 36% in proteinuria which, if confirmed in the recently initiated 2b Diabetic Kidney Disease study, would be expected to translate into many years extension to the life of the patient’s kidneys.

Details of the trials are available on both ANZCTR and websites.

Patients interested in joining the trial should speak to their nephrologist.

Choosing the Right Bedding Sheets

Crown Goose also offers luxury goose down bedding in package sets.

Goose Down offers not only softness but provides excellent insulation to keep the body warm and secure.

CROWN GOOSE offers beautiful cover collections that range in style from classic to modern.

Goose Down Duvets and Comforters

Sleep crafted with the finest goose down and fabrics from around the world.”


LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, September 17, 2018 / — If you think about it, we spend a good amount of our life in our bed. (Netflix and chill, anyone?) So we talk about getting a good mattress, a good duvet and a good pillow. What about sheets?

With so many options to choose from, and with so many marketplaces that offer them, choosing the right bed sheets for you can seem more difficult than necessary. Several new bedding companies have emerged like Crown Goose, who are making luxurious bedding more and more appealing to even the budget-conscious folks. Instead of poor quality at cheap prices, that may not last too long anyway, Crown Goose offers fine quality bedding selection using high-quality fabric and craftsmanship.

Let’s dive into few details to look into if you’re in the market for new sheets.

Thread Count – The Hot Keyword
Every company wants to entice you with high thread count. But is it really as good as they say? And is the price worth it? To summarize, higher thread count does not necessarily make for softer, better quality sheets.

Why Is That?
Thread count (“TC”) refers to the the amount of woven threads that make up one square inch of the fabric, combining the horizontal threads (called “weft”) and vertical ones (“warp”). This number normally ranges from 150 up to 1,000 or more in fabrics like silk. But when it comes to cotton, like for all Crown Goose products, you need to be looking at more than just the TC number.

When producing sheets, only so many threads can fit on a loom. Many experts say 400 to 600 threads per inch is ideal. However, because TC is often used as part of a marketing tactic, some add extra threads by twisting them into the weft, increasing the TC number but providing no values in terms of adding to softness or durability. You may even find yourself wondering why 1,000 or more TC sheets pills and seems fragile to touch.

All that to say, focus on the fabric itself. Fabric used should be of durable fiber and if you wanted to dig deeper, with marks like 100S Cotton, which denotes the fineness of the fabric (contributing to the softness of your sheets) can also be considered.

Down to the Sheet Fabric

With thread count aside, there’s no question when it comes to softness or durability that the best cotton sheets are Percale and Sateen. Sateen used in Crown Goose bedding products is the closest fabric you can get that provides the silky satin feel without being very costly and fragile. It’s also naturally wrinkle-resistant, helping to create a clean, organized look in your bedroom.

Considering the amount of time you spend in bed, plus the importance of quality sleep, you may be doing yourself a favor by choosing or upgrading to premium bedding from the ol’ bedding from the broke college days. Crown Goose offers a wide variety of designs in cover sheets and fitted sheets, made with premium cotton material so head on over and see what suits you. If you’re not already, follow us on Instagram for style inspirations.

Sleep extraordinarily,

Advisors have unique hurdles that require specialized marketing techniques to counterbalance the industry’s changing landscape, complexity and jargon-lovely ways. The 2018 InsuranceNewsNet (INN) Super Conference aims to help advisors standout and stay relevant with practical, marketing-centric content and thought leadership. The three-day conference takes place in Chicago from September 26 – 28 and will feature leading financial advisors, insurance professionals and marketing strategists who will share actionable insights and the details behind their tried and true methods.

Empyrion™ Wealth Management Founder and President Kimberly Foss will be a key speaker on the INN Super Conference’s “Making Money in Media” panel discussion. Foss will share simple ideas to help advisors create their own celebrity brands by leveraging the power of television and video. No stranger to marketing success, Foss is a New York Times best-selling author, national speaker, and popular media source. She has appeared on major media outlets, including Good Morning America, The Today Show, CNBC, and Fox Business.

“I’m excited to share what I’ve learned over the years and how to connect with prospects and clients effectively," says Foss. "If you're passionate about helping clients thrive and have a genuine message to share, you'll gain momentum naturally with some simple marketing strategies. For instance, the philosophy I share with my clients is that everyone—whatever their current situation—has the freedom to create choice and increase abundance in their life. And, that kind of heartfelt, aspirational message resonates, especially through a dynamic medium like television or video.”
