SpaceVR Adds Richard Garriott, Video Game and Space Entrepreneur, to Advisory Board

San Francisco, CA, July 27, 2015 –(– SpaceVR, the world’s first virtual reality platform with the ability to share live 3D, 360-degree content from the International Space Station (ISS), announces that Richard Garriott has joined its advisory board. Equally well known in the gaming and space tourism industries, he created Ultima, the legendary fantasy role play game series, and holds the distinction of being the sixth private astronaut in space and the second second-generation astronaut as his father, Owen K. Garriott, was a NASA astronaut in the 1970s and 80s. He is also the vice chairman of Space Adventures, currently the only company providing opportunities for space flight and tourism.

“When I flew to the ISS in 2008, it was quickly clear to me that the life-changing experience of living and working in Earth’s orbit was important to share. However, it was also clear that this would be no easy task. SpaceVR is developing the ability to share this experience in a meaningful way. It is my hope that I can aid the company in identifying some of the best things about the ISS to share and how to do it,” said Richard Garriott, private astronaut and vice chairman of Space Adventures.

Mr. Garriott was born in the UK to American parents and moved with his family to Houston when his father became a NASA scientist-astronaut. While he often joked with his father about stowing away on a spaceship, he ended up not having to do that, instead parlaying his computer game fortune into investing in Space Adventures and purchasing the ticket to become the first private citizen to fly into space.

He trained for a year in Russia before flying to the ISS on October 21, 2008. While in orbit, Garriott participated in various educational outreach projects, communicating with students via Amateur Radio and carrying out experiments suggested by British schoolchildren. Today, he continues to promote space tourism through Space Adventures, while spearheading philanthropic efforts in Austin, Texas, where he makes his home. He regularly hosts the Austin Shakespeare Festival on his estate, Britannia Manor, as well as an annual concert and fundraiser for the Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, a 227-acre wood west of Austin.

“Like all the great explorers, Richard has dedicated his life to reaching and pushing past the limits of humanity. His role as founder of various companies that have brought innovative concepts to life makes him the ideal ambassador for translating the ‘overview effect’ – the profound feeling of seeing the world from a new physical perspective, resulting in a shift in philosophical point of view – to the vast majority of humanity who has yet to see our world from outside its atmosphere. We look forward to working with him realizing our vision of sharing first-person perspectives of space, evoking the awe of actual spaceflight,” said Ryan Holmes, CEO of SpaceVR.

Famous Billy Meier UFO Contact Case to be Presented in Kansas City August 14

Famous Billy Meier UFO Contact Case to be Presented in Kansas City August 14 Kansas City, MO, July 27, 2015 –(– Meier claims he was first contacted by extraterrestrials from the Pleaides at the age of five. According to Meier, the extraterrestrials shared information about the origin of the universe, earth history, science, reincarnation, genetic engineering, interplanetary space flight, destruction of the environment, military cover-ups and much more.

Billy Meier claims he was able to obtain hundreds of photos of spacecraft taken both day and night, and video footage of the craft. In addition to Meier, allegedly there are more than 70 people who have claimed to witness the evidence.

“I will share my beliefs as to how those who I view as the greatest opponents to the alleged authenticity of the still ongoing Billy Meier case – the governments and the UFO community itself – have affected our lives and safety,” says Horn about the upcoming event. “I will show Meier’s clear, detailed UFO photos, and share the prophetic information that Billy Meier began publishing in 1951 at 14 years of age has allegedly foretold the destruction now upon us and unfolding from environmental disasters, terrorism, epidemics and wars. I will also be sharing the specific recommendations from Meier and the Plejaren that they believe will help us assure our own very threatened future survival.”

Find Your Purpose Using Science: Atheist Analysis Television Interview with Dr. Gleb Tsipursky

Columbus, OH, July 28, 2015 –(– Can science really help you understand the purpose of life and teach you how to live a meaningful life? Atheist Analysis Television ( conducted an interview on this topic with Dr. Gleb Tsipursky, the author of Find Your Purpose Using Science. Dr. Tsipursky is a tenure-track professor at Ohio State University. As a historian of science, he researches the intersection of history, psychology, and cognitive neuroscience, focusing on meaning and purpose, decision-making, emotions, and agency. He is also a science popularizer, a best-selling author, and president of the nonprofit organization Intentional Insights ( His workbook combines an engaging narrative, stories from people’s lives, and research-informed exercises designed to help people cultivate a rich sense of meaning and purpose.

The interview with Dr. Tsipursky focused on whether science really can answer life’s big questions, such as “why am I here” and “what is the purpose of life for me?” These questions, as Dr. Tsipursky describes, have become answerable due to a recent wave of research in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and medicine.

The findings reveal three science-informed strategies for finding purpose and living a meaningful life. The first set of strategies stems from the work of Victor Frankl, a Viennese psychiatrist who lived through the Holocaust concentration camps. In his research and work, both in the camps and afterward in private practice, he found that, in order for individuals to survive and thrive, it is crucial for each to self-reflect on their sense of purpose and meaning in life. The second set of strategies stem from studies showing that people have a higher sense of life meaning and purpose when they are part of a community and have strong social bonds. The third comes from extensive research that demonstrates how opportunities to serve others, whether in civic, charitable, private, or professional settings, results in a stronger sense of purpose and meaning in life. This sense of purpose, in turn, leads to better mental and physical well-being.

The workbook describes these strategies in much greater depth, with a free book version available at It was published by Intentional Insights, a nonprofit devoted to inspiring people to refine and reach their goals. This nonprofit provides research-based content to help improve thinking, feeling, and behavior patterns. Intentional Insights also offers free online classes, videotaped workshops, blogs, and other content on meaning and purpose, as well as in a variety of other topics.

"A Dog Named Gucci" to Have Benefit Screening in Ephrata

Ephrata, PA, July 27, 2015 –(– The acclaimed documentary “A Dog Named Gucci,” from writer/director Gorman Bechard, will have a screening at the Ephrata Main Theatre on Tuesday, October 6 at 7PM. Admission is free with a can or bag of pet food per person to benefit the Lancaster County SPCA. This special screening is being presented by the movie and television streaming service Premiere.

He was hung by his neck, punched repeatedly, doused with lighter fluid, and set afire. That should have been the last thing a ten-week old puppy named Gucci would ever experience. His last contact with humans. His final moments of life.

But Doug James, standing on his porch nearby, heard the puppy’s cries and ran to help. He scared away the cowardly thugs who had perpetrated this heinous crime, and at the request of Gucci’s 15-year-old runaway owner, took the dog in for the night.

Thus began a 16-year odyssey of devotion and perseverance.

When Gucci was rescued by Doug, it seemed impossible that the badly burned pup would make it through the night. But Gucci, a Chow-Husky-mix, would live for sixteen years as Doug’s companion. As Gucci recovered, Doug did everything in his power to see that the dog’s three assailants were punished. However, the laws in Alabama were not on Gucci’s side. At worst the guilty would receive slaps on the wrists. That was not enough in the eyes of Doug James.

Together with local legislators, and with Gucci always faithfully by his side, Doug would see the “Gucci Bill” passed, changing the laws in Alabama and making domestic animal abuse a felony. He would witness Gucci go from being a survivor . . . to a rock star.

The film is a feature-length documentary that will bring the amazing story of Gucci and Doug James to life: from that horrible night of abuse, to the numerous operations to repair Gucci’s severely burned eyelids, to the legislation passed in his name to help prevent such a thing from ever happening again.

“A Dog Named Gucci” is a production of What Were We Thinking Films. Lynn Webb, Jay Smales, Scott Hudson, Brandon McCaw, Kimberly Ventre, and Kevin Carvell serve as executive producers. Kristine Bechard serves as producer. Music is provided by Dean Falcone. The film was produced, edited, written, and directed by Gorman Bechard.
