VR & AR Experience

New York based tech giant with its operating centers in Dubai & Islamabad is committed to revolutionize the world with its strong AR & VR expertise.

Our top-line will soon be based on "How good we can create a Virtual Image of our products"”

— Group CEO Napollo, Ahmad J. Butt

NEW YORK, NY, USA, January 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Imagine visiting a vacation destination while sitting in your living room before finalizing the next vacation trip? How about trying a cloth before making an ONLINE PURCHASE while sitting on your bed? Have you ever thought of a doctor conducting a critical surgery 7000 miles away from his hospital?

Napollo, a New York based software development firm with its operating centers in Dubai & Islamabad is all set to revolutionize the world with its strong faculty of PHD’s and access to the best graduates in Top Universities.

Over the past 2 years Napollo has focused entirely on creating and deploying the VR & AR technologies in Fashion, Healthcare, Tourism and Real Estate start-ups and established businesses.

In Healthcare sectors, Advancements in medical devices and training techniques hold promise for saving and improving lives. But our current system of training surgeons has lagged behind the pace of innovation — leaving some doctors unprepared to perform complex surgeries and putting some patients at risk. Using the virtual reality technology in training may play an important role in addressing these deficiencies and improving skills.

In Fashion Industry, Big problem for E-commerce players is the customer returns after making a purchase. Napollo has been working for many years in determining the human body through computer vision and mapping it digitally for customers to try the clothes before making the purchase.

Pandemic has made it hard for customers to visit the real estate sites to see the model homes hence VR environment of the model home has made it easy for real estate tycoons to grab the attention of property buyers without incurring big costs.

Napollo Software Design is actively partnering with strategic players to further refine and enhance the digital experience in this decade through its strong Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Artificial Intelligence & Computer Vision expertise.

Napollo is among the Top Tier Tech companies with advanced expertise provided by PHD’s in Computer Science from world renowned universities & experienced professionals from international tech giants.

Hadad: A reintroduction program to return falcons to their original habitats

RIYADH, RIYADH, المملكة العربية السعودية, January 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hadad: A reintroduction program to return falcons to their original habitats

Falconry is a cultural legacy in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Saudis have always held falconry dear to their hearts. For them, it is more than a legacy; rather, it is a deep-rooted cultural heritage that is passed down from generation to generation, dating back to nearly nine thousand years. It is widely practiced across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by falconers who follow a strict code of rules that are the essence to the practice of falconry.

To highlight the importance of this crucial part of Saudi cultural heritage the Saudi Falcons Club (SFC) was founded in 2017 with His Highness, Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman being the General Supervisor and His Highness Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Naif bin Abdulaziz as the Chairman of the Board of Directors. The Saudi Leadership has also exerted great efforts to conserve and nurture this legacy and ensure its sustainability as a hobby and also protect the different species of falcons.

The SFC aims at preserving the rich heritage and traditions associated with falconry and promote awareness programs to conserve and protect falcons and ensure that falconry remains a living and flourishing hobby that is practiced by following generations.

In November 2020, the SFC launched the first phase of its program ‘Hadad’, which aims to reintroduce falcons to their original habitats, preserve falcon species and populations and also enhance the Kingdom’s leading role in achieving environmental sustainability and protecting the wildlife, as part of the Saudi vision 2030.

Being supported by His Highness, Crown Prince Muhammad bin Salman himself, the program encourages owners of falcons to collaborate with SFC so that these falcons can be released back to their wild habitats in hopes of restoration to their populations. Before releasing the falcons to their natural habitats, the SFC runs a medical examination and a physical rehabilitation designed to assess the fitness of the falcons prior to release. The program also monitors their movements, survival and behaviors post-releasing to inform future reintroduction plans.

The program focuses on returning falcons to their natural habitats inside Saudi Arabia such as the Barbary Falcon and Lanner Falcon. In addition, migratory falcons that are in Saudi Arabia including the Saker Falcon and the Peregrine Falcon will be rehabilitated and released in Central Asia in coordination with international falcon associations.

7 Things to know about John Singson

John Singson, Celebrity Entrepreneur

Inspiring Story of John Singson, a Successful Entrepreneur.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, January 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — 7 Things to Know about John Singson
Path to Financial Freedom

Struggling to find someone credible and who can trust with your money? Look no more when you find the only John Singson… It may seem very hard to believe that a guy like Mr. Singson is a phone call away- but it is true. John has helped many individuals and families find their wealth through real estate investing, flipping homes, buying and holding rental properties, finding deals through foreclosures and courthouses, you name it. John has unlimited knowledge of complex real estate investing. Putting him at #1 on the list of Entrepreneur of the Year by SpotLight Media Magazine, he had also achieved many awards from public officials like Mayors, Councilmen, a Senator, and many more.

1.) Did you grow up in a very powerful and famous political family in the Philippines? Do you keep in touch with them? Yes, I do. But I have my own lane here in the US and I'm lovin' it.

2.) Away from the Real Estate world, tell me more about hobbies? I love investing my time in financial education because that's what they don't teach in school. Some people have many different degrees more than they have money, for me, I prefer the other way around (that's just me). As long as I'm financially and morally educated, I'm good because, at the end of the day, it boils down to wealth creation, doesn't matter if you're a doctor or a janitor. I'm also into creating new relationships that have business opportunities. I love simple mathematics, I know this is weird, but I always like to calculate how I can adapt and stay closer to building wealth instead of being just rich. In this era, everyone's rich but not everyone's wealthy. I also love sharing my knowledge, because that's what gives people the power and the confidence to take it to the next level, and when my peers reach the next level, I know I'll be on the same boat with them. Sharing is very much caring.

3.) 2020 is behind us now, What is your 2021 forecast in Real Estate? I believe real
estate investing here in the US will forever be good. It is true that our market has ups and downs, but they don't last forever. The climbing and appreciation of the properties happen more than the downfall of markets. The ratio of positive investments is at 95% while the prices going down rarely happens. What matters the most is buying at the right price; there's always the right price at any market. Don't focus on the market, but focus on the investment. Good investments are also made in bad markets.

4.) You were named "Entrepreneur of the Year 2020" by Spotlight Media Magazine. Share us
One day, I got a phone call from the prestige media company asking to share my story and a little bit of what I do. Compared to the lined-up celebrities and guests on the platform, I am humbled that I got selected as the Entrepreneur of the Year at this level. God is good!

5.) Is failing more important than succeeding?
I believe succeeding is the ultimate goal but to enhance success you have to fail at times. The more you fail, the sharper you become. Our mind is like a muscle, the more it is trained in challenging circumstances, the more it can overcome the next level. It's kind of the same feeling of losing, you have to embrace it when you lose because you wouldn't know the feeling of winning without losing. The two opposite words would not be found if you only experience one side of the situation. Same with failure and succeeding, success won't be created without failure. My answer is, both are important in two different ways.

6.) What sets you apart from other real estate professionals/companies? The way I care about our clients & investors, everyone is considered family. I've always been a phone call away. I have a very good memory and I remember each and every special individual that supports us.

"Nonetheless, we make sure that their investment has a 100% success rate and that they invest again which happens most of the time if not, all the time. "

7.) Favorite Quote or Saying
"Don't confuse schooling with education. School is built for workers, not entrepreneurs. Education in life, money, and happiness is key. I didn't go to Harvard but the people that work for me did".

Share with us a word of inspiration.
My advice to young entrepreneurs out there, you have to be able to decide quickly on why and how you want to start your company. First decide why, the rest will follow. Remember in this techy world we live in, people had gone over their patience because we're so advanced, our world
is moving fast so you need to act fast and accurately on things you want to do. It's not how famous you become, it's how fast can you move onto something bigger than it will eliminate your competitors. You always have to be 5 steps ahead, before the market shifts its trend, you have to be the trend. You have to be the creator, not 1st nor 2nd place.

PADI CD Holly Macleod receives Platinum and Elite-300 Awards for the 8th year running in the Gili Islands

INDONESIA, January 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Once again Award Winning Industry Leading Multiple Platinum PADI Course Director Holly Macleod has received the PADI Elite-300 Instructor Award; making it the eight consecutive year winning both this and the Platinum PADI Award.

Gili Islands, Indonesia
The PADI Elite Instructor Award is issued to instructors who have certified a certain amount of students. The award is available in 50, 100, 150, 200 & 300; so in this particular case the Elite-300 award donates that PADI Course Director Holly Macleod has issued over 300 PADI certifications in 2020. The Platinum Award is basically the highest possible award a PADI Course Director can receive and is awarded for not only experience based on the number certifications; but also takes into account continuing education courses and overall commitment to professional PADI Instructor training.

PADI Course Director Holly Macleod has been in the recreational diving industry for over 18 years and has had the opportunity to work in a variety of different global diving destinations including Honduras, Thailand, Australia, UK, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia & Singapore. Having issued well over 3000 PADI Instructor certifications Holly has designed a program that draws upon previous experience to provide a true real life experience based training program preparing instructors to confidently deal with a variety of situations they may encounter in the field.

The PADI Program conducted by Holly Macleod has now become an internationally acknowledged rite of passage for any professional PADI Divemaster who is passionate and serious about becoming a scuba diving instructor. The entire program, from start to finish is conducted by Holly and has been purposely designed to go way beyond what is required by the PADI IDC curriculum syllabus. It is widely regarded as a far superior training experience than that generally found within today’s recreational diving industry.

For Holly, it’s not just about teaching the courses, getting paid and receiving all of these great awards; it’s really just a way of life. Having such a passion for teaching and for the underwater environment means that every professional diver who decides to take the next step can feel confident that Holly will be there before the program starts, throughout the course, during the instructor examination and will even be available afterwards for assistance when starting out in what many would call the real world.

The PADI IDC Indonesia with Holly really is a passport to a new career teaching others to dive with the skills, knowledge and confidence to be highly successful in the journey. Professional Divemaster’s can be assured a quality training experience. Prospective candidates can see first-hand reviews from previous candidates on the PADI IDC Gili Islands TripAdvisor Page and keep up with the latest news and updates via the IDC Gili Islands Instagram Page.

Holly Macleod Awarded the 2021 PADI IDC Platinum Award for the 8th Year running in the Gili Islands

INDONESIA, January 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Again in 2021 Industry Leading Multiple Award Winning Platinum PADI Course Director has received the PADI Platinum Award; making it the eight year in a row receiving both this and the PADI Elite 300 Instructor Award.
Gili Islands, Indonesia

The PADI Platinum Award is the highest possible recognition rating given to only a few Course Directors worldwide each year in recognition of their scuba diving instructor training achievements and overall commitment to the industry by way of professional level educational excellence. The PADI Elite Instructor Award Program recognizes PADI Instructors for reaching specific milestones based on the number of certifications you issue annually. So in this particular case the Elite-300 denotes over 300 certifications issued by that particular instructor; and for Holly Macleod that would mean over 300 Instructor level certifications.

During 2020 PADI Course Director Holly Macleod saw candidates from a variety of different countries including Indonesia (both Jakarta and Flores), India, Hong Kong, China, Poland, USA, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Holland, Italy, Sweden, South Africa, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, France, Australia, Korea, Portugal, Singapore, Canada and Greece taking professional Instructor level training in the Gili Islands and are all now certified to teach others to scuba dive.

Holly Macleod has a wealth of experience within the recreational diving industry and has been working within diving for nearly 2 decades in a variety of different diving related roles. Holly has worked in a range of different world wide diving destinations including Honduras, Thailand, Australia, UK, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia & Singapore. Holly has now issued well over 3000 scuba diving instructor level certifications and uses this experience to train others to teach recreational diving courses. With all of this industry experience Holly has devised a training program that incorporates personal teaching circumstances and situations that have actually taken place to provide real life experience based training to new instructors; therefore preparing graduates to teach new divers with a confidence that they can deal with any circumstantial situations that may arise.

Receiving the Platinum Award is a great achievement for any PADI Course Director, but the main thing is that PADI Course Director Holly Macleod was able to continue delivering the program well into the year, despite the challenges posed by the global pandemic and was able to continue sharing her passion for scuba diving and for professional dive training.

The PADI IDC Indonesia Program is considered as amongst the best places to train as a professional PADI Scuba Diving Instructor, whereby candidates will receive real experience based training and be prepared to start a rewarding and successful career teaching others to dive. The PADI IDC Gili Islands Reviews found on TripAdvisor is possibly one of the best places to really find out what others thought of the program. For the latest news and updates social media such as the IDC Gili Islands Instagram page is a great start.

Will Underdog Richard Rossi Upset Best Actor Oscar Race? by Vanessa Farraday

Unknown actors usually don't have a prayer when it comes to snagging an Oscar nomination. Minister-turned-moviemaker Richard Rossi may get a miracle.

HOLLYWOOD, CA., UNITED STATES, January 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Unknown actors usually don't have a prayer when it comes to snagging an Oscar nomination. Minister-turned-moviemaker Richard Rossi may get a miracle on the strength of his portrayal of con man preacher Brother Billy in Canaan Land.

Rossi is competing for a 2021 Oscar with his controversial film “Canaan Land” about a con man preacher named Brother Billy (played by Rossi) who falls in love with a sincere Christian (Rebecca Holden). Rossi’s portrayal lays bare Billy’s secrets. His performance as an aging grifter who lives off the kindness of women is a master class on acting. It is the greatest acting performance of the year. “Canaan Land” can be seen for a limited time on Vimeo.com here: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/canaanland

“Media is in financial trouble due to covid,” a former award winner said. “The studios spend to get their A-listers a Best Actor nod, so it’s near impossible for an unknown actor without marketing money to fight that.”

“Canaan Land” comes out of my past experiences as a minister,” Rossi said. “I met some big name televangelists who faked miracles to get money. I was so angry, I started writing Canaan Land, about the differences between the fake and the real.”

Rossi’s performance draws you in from the beginning and takes you on a roller coaster until the end. I cherished every moment and actually came to feel bad for Brother Billy, despite his being the consummate charismatic con man.

IMDB is giving Canaan Land a 9.5 and reviews are pouring in:

“As Billy is revealed to have a trail of women he used for sex or money, I find myself despising his behavior. Yet, as his backstory is revealed, and the tone of the film changes, from comedy to drama, my heart breaks for Billy and I understand why he does what he does. I cried for Billy.” (IMDB, Brooke, Boston)

“Although I love Burt Lancaster who won an Oscar for Elmer Gantry in 1960 playing a similar religious con man, I think Rossi was better in this 21st century equivalent. Burt Lancaster’s phoniness was so over-the-top. Rossi’s Brother Billy Gantry was over-the-top when it was called for in the TV preaching scenes, but he created a character more subtle, layered with subtext in his ability to manipulate the gullible. It is a small film, a David vs. Goliath, but if it is given a fair chance, it deserves nominations…” (IMDB, Catholic Newswire)

“Rossi’s nuanced acting was stellar. His hustling was despicable, yet somehow his childlike qualities and brokenness made me want to see him redeemed. I support this underdog Oscar contender because it tells a real story based on minister-turned-moviemaker Rossi’s pain and past as a former faith healer. Rossi takes the concept of a faith-based film and turns it on its head.” (IMDB, Indie Film Judge)

“Get the gold dust!” Brother Billy yells, in his gold jacket that has spawned a fashion trend and is sold in stores worldwide as the “Brother Billy Canaan Land jacket.” There is a reason Billy’s look and eccentricities have become iconic. Rossi has tapped into archetypes in his character…” (IMDB, Jack Bernstein)

Canaan Land is a small film made as a labor of love going against studios spending $40 million with a staff of 65 marketing to get nominations. But Rossi’s fellow actors who watch Canaan Land, from beginning to end, have an obvious choice. Rossi’s performance captivates with an arc of a performance that deserves a Best Actor nomination.

“Canaan Land is an outsider climbing ranks,” Kelly Tabor Cromer said, who runs a fan club for Rossi’s work. “Like a Kentucky Derby homestretch, on the bit with full strides, pulling with momentum, pushing out, ahead, clearing it’s rivals as the closer, to the Winner’s Circle for the prize, there’s the late-breaking indie newcomer, Canaan Land.”

Canaan Land, is now screening in the Academy Screening Room for voting members, under 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, Santa Monica, The Kingdom Is Near, and Street Preachin’ Man).
