Duncan Welcomes Prestigious ABBI American Heritage Event This Weekend


Duncan, OK (PRWEB) June 12, 2015

There is no bigger event for 2-year-old bulls than the American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI) American Heritage Futurity. With over $ 300,000 paid out last year at the two-day event, the American Heritage is the must-enter event for ABBI stock contractors each season. The winning bull typically takes home a check for about $ 100,000.

American Bucking Bull Inc. is the sister organization to Professional Bull Riders (PBR) and is dedicated to promoting bucking bulls, both by preserving their bloodlines and showcasing their athletic abilities. They have over 170,000 DNA registered bucking cattle and pay out an average of $ 3 million dollars in prize money each season.

There is simply no bigger event for young bucking bulls and were thrilled to be holding it in Duncan, said Executive Director Jay Daugherty. We looked at many cities and arenas before making our selection. This is a big family event for us so all of the activities offered at the Simmons Center, as well as the proximity of the arena to hotels and restaurants, were key factors in our decision. Duncan is a great community and were happy to be here.

This premier annual event has been held in Oklahoma since its inception, but relocated to Duncan this year. Stephens County Fair & Expo Center will host several hundred of these elite animal athletes this weekend. American Heritage events are unique in that they require an animal to be nominated for the competition the year of its birth. Sustaining payments are then made on schedule up until the animal competes in the event.

Futurity bulls buck with a weighted box (called a dummy) on their back for 4 seconds. Half of the animals will buck Friday at 12:30 pm with the second half bucking Saturday starting at 1:30 pm on Saturday. The box is released via remote-control and a team of judges award scores based on the animals performance. A Junior Futurity for American Bucking Bull Inc. members aged 9-18 will also be held Saturday at 10am, with these young cowboys and cowgirls flanking their own bucking bulls in the chutes. There will also be a Derby for 3-year-old bucking bulls. These older bulls will be pitted against cowboys in what will be an adrenaline-charged bull riding that starts at 7pm on Friday and Saturday.

Another highlight of the weekend will be two much anticipated sales. D&H Cattle Co. will be having a yearling bull sale on Thursday at 7:30pm. American Bucking Bull Inc. will hold their Hot Dams Sale (featuring elite females who are the dams or offspring of PBR superstar bulls) on Saturday at 9am. Both will take place at the Stephens County Fair & Expo Center.

“We are excited about bringing the American Heritage to Duncan and showcasing our community,” stated event liaison Jim D. McLain of the TwoBulls Group. “Our goal of bringing major events to Duncan is now becoming a reality through the vision of our County Commissioners in the recent expansion of the Stephens Co. Expo. The cooperative efforts between the Duncan Convention & Visitors Bureau, Stephens County Fair & Expo Center and TwoBulls Group made it possible to being this world-class event to Duncan. With hundreds of stock contractors, their families and bucking bull fans, this event will benefit the city, county and local businesses with a major economic impact.”

2015 marks the 12 year anniversary of American Bucking Bull Inc. (ABBI). Over the last decade, ABBI had established itself as the largest bucking cattle registry in the world. Owned by shareholders, the ABBI has been able to raise the public profile of animal athletes to a whole new level. For more information: AmericanBuckingBull.com

Affluents Will Travel in New Luxury Style This Year: Learn the Prospects and Opportunities for Serving the Luxury Traveler in 2015 in a New Unity Marketing Study


Stevens, PA (PRWEB) January 15, 2015

At any time about one-half of affluents are planning a vacation within the next six-months, according to a new research study about affluents’ luxury travel plans for 2015, from Unity Marketing. But this year, they are looking for new luxury travel experiences at a discount price.

For those that operate a travel business or serve the travel market, this trend report, Affluents Will Travel in New Luxury Style in 2015, reveals the new luxury style for this year’s affluent traveler. It is a guide to capture some of the roughly $ 8,000 they expect to spend on their next vacation. It reveals detail research data from a new survey among n=1,330 affluent consumers about their travel plans for this year, as well historical data from Unity Marketing’s quarterly Affluent Consumer Tracking Studies from 2008-1H2014, in order to track trends and shifts in this year’s market.

Affluents plan to take 3 vacations on average in 2015, but they are waiting till the last minute to book. This works in their favor, as they carefully research all the available options, compare the many promotional offers received, and tap the internet and social media for reviews and recommendations. For travel planning, they are more DIY in 2015 and using travel professionals less than in 2013.

Further, due to growing global unrest and the Department of State issuing a ‘worldwide caution’ on January 9, 2015, it only makes sense to wait till the time is right.

Click this link to learn the top destinations for luxury travelers in 2015.

“This year the share of affluents who are undecided about their travel plans more than doubled from Unity Marketing’s 2013 luxury travel study. Further, the projected budget for their next vacation is lower than we’ve tracked since 2009,” Pam Danziger, president of Unity Marketing and author of the new study says. “Consumer uncertainty and lack of confidence is never a good sign for marketers and that is the environment that travel marketers face this year.”

More affluents are undecided about travel plans & waiting for the last minute

Danziger continues, “The saying goes, ‘Hope for the best, but plan for the worst,’ and that should be the mantra for travel marketers this year. Given all the factors that can impact people’s willingness to travel, especially overseas, travel marketers need to plan that their customers will be harder to commit to proposed trips this year. Those customers will be more demanding when it comes to getting the most for their investment and may look more aggressively to cut expenditures. Further, this may be an especially good year for the travel insurance business.”

Travel rewards programs less rewarding in 2015

Another interesting trend found in this year’s survey is that rewards programs, like those offered by the airlines, hotels and credit card companies, are less motivating for affluents in 2015 than two years ago. A growing share of affluents have no plans or are undecided if they will redeem rewards for travel this year. Further affluents report being less influenced by collecting rewards points in their choice of travel provider.

“Overall travel rewards programs are less rewarding to affluents in 2015 than in 2013. Since travel marketers rely heavily on rewards programs to market their services, this is an important call to action. It points to the need for travel providers to focus their marketing and rewards programs toward rewards that are more meaningful and motivating to affluent travelers. Saving money is always welcome, but just offering rewards in the form of discounts and savings may no longer be the ticket to building a loyal and high-spending customer base,” Danziger says.

About Affluents Will Travel in New Luxury Style in 2015 trend report

Tapping a new survey of over 1,300 affluent travelers about their plans for travel in 2015 and perspective from six years of market research data, Unity Marketing reveals what’s on the mind of today’s luxury traveler. The new trend report, Affluents Will Travel in New Luxury Style in 2015, digs deeply into the spending habits and preferences of high-net-worth (HNW) and high-earners-not-rich-yet (HENRY) individuals.

In this report, travel marketers will learn:

Featured This Week On The Jazz Network Worldwide: Vocalist, Lorraina Marro with a Sneak Peek of Her New Single Not The End Of Me from Her Upcoming CD Mixed Emotions.


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 15, 2014

Lorraina Marro is one who knows how to set the tone of her musical offerings. Not only was her first CD You Must Believe In Spring released in 2004 a welcome expression of her vocal stylings, she continues to share her original lyrics in her upcoming CD Mixed Emotions produced by Christian Davis and Warren McRae. To whet the whistle of her fan base, she is giving The Jazz Network Worldwide the first opportunity to get a taste of whats to come in February 2015 with her new CD project Mixed Emotions.

“I am so thrilled to have my single “Not The End of Me” featured on the Jazz Network Worldwide. I have been writing lyrics for years about some of my own personal experiences and so excited to accomplish a life-long goal to put some of those lyrics to music. I couldn’t be happier to release my all original CD at the Catalina Jazz Club on February 1, 2015, the same fabulous venue where I released my first CD You Must Believe In Spring back in 2004.

Marro takes to heart the influences that guided her to her own musical expression. In May of this year she celebrated her reverence to songstress Nancy Wilson with a tribute performance at Catalinas Bar and Grill in Los Angeles. Clifford Bell, Marros musical director who has shared stages with many luminaries worldwide stated Catalina – (Yes, Virginia- There is a Catalina) had stayed the whole night…something she literally almost never does and she LOVED the show….I have known Catalina for ten years and she is the last gal standing from the great Jazz Scene of the past, present and future…She has seen and heard everyone.. This performance was only the precursor of what was to show up for Lorraina in 2014. Not only did she complete her second recording, she has kept the momentum of her musical offerings in front of her fans.

Marro also credits other extraordinary singers such as Barbra Streisand, Linda Ronstadt, Aretha Franklin, Della Reese, Dinah Washington, Dionne Warwick, Sammy Davis, Jr., and Frank Sinatra for inspiring her to develop and share her gift with the world.

She takes her fans on a personal journey, for all to capture the essence of the silver lining of her soul, from love, to the triangles of relationships and starting over, much ado that we all can relate to in our lives. Her original lyrics exude honest and pure expression that is ever present to her audience when she is on stage says Jaijai Jackson, Owner of The Jazz Network Worldwide.

The musicianship on the recording are: Ely Rise: piano and organ; John Meenk: guitar; Graham Ward: drums, Greg Sartiano: bass; in addition to: Warren McRae: bass, drums, percussion, additional keyboards, synthesizer and guitar; Steve McGuire: electric guitar, horns, additional percussion; and Chloe Love Smith: background vocals and writers Christian Davis, Warren McRae, Steve McGuire, Etienne ATN Stadwijk and Lorraina Marro.

Lorraina has performed her own shows at multiple venues in Los Angeles, including Prestons, The House of Blues, Catalina Jazz Club, Nolas LA, The M Bar, The Hollywood Studio Bar & Grill, The Holly St. Bar & Grill, The Cinegrill, The Gardenia, The Bel Age Hotel, the Marriott Hotels, and Wyndham Hotels. In Las Vegas for The Special Operations Warriors Foundation at the Four Seasons, The Aladdin, and The Las Vegas Hilton Hotels as well as Dannys Skylight Room in New York.

Most recently, on December 7th, 2014 Lorraina assembled some great musicians for Lets Toast To The Holidays event at the local jazz hotspot Upstairs At Vitellos in Los Angeles to a packed house. Award winning, critically acclaimed jazz vocalist/lyricist, Mark Winkler attended and stated Wonderful show. Great choice of tunes, great musicians and you were the best I’ve ever seen you. Congrats!

No doubt that the stage has been set by way of Marros new attitude and story-telling in her musical repetoire. Her new single Not The End Of Me released during the holiday season is surely a gift for her fans. A worldwide radio campaign is set in motion to take the airwaves by storm for her new CD Mixed Emotions as well as a concert tour in the works for 2015.

“Playing Saint” by Zachary Bartels Released This Month by Thomas Nelson Publishing


(PRWEB) October 31, 2014

“Yesterday, Parker Saint’s only concern was his swiftly rising star power. Today, he’s just trying to stay alive.”

Rising mega-pastor Parker Saint was wrapped up in his ratings and his book deal. But that was before the cops and the serial killer, the Vatican operatives, and the centuries-old plot to conceal an ancient relic. Now hes just trying to stay alive.

Parker Saint is an up-and-coming superstar pastor on the verge of achieving everything he’s wantedincluding a national TV program and major book deal. His success seems all but guaranteed until an angry incident with a flight attendant. To keep his growing empire from collapsing, Parker cuts a deal and agrees to serve as a police consultant on the trail of a twisted serial killer who marks his victims with religious symbols. The problem is, Parker’s anything but an expert, faking his way through the investigation by slipping away to consult his smart phone.

As he is drawn deeper into a web of intrigue involving an obsessive and demanding detective, a trio of relentless Vatican operatives, a string of botched exorcisms, and a centuries-old conspiracy to conceal a mysterious relic, Parker finds himself questioning everything he has been trying so hard to protect.

Building to an intense climax, Playing Saint is a timely exploration of what compels us, what defines us, and what redeems us. With its combination of suspense, humor, and intriguing characters, it will captivate readers until the final twist.
