New Housing Counseling Trend Shows Positive Signs for Home Buyers

brianjo 4

Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 16, 2015 Renewed interest in housing counseling is revealing that many are considering home ownership as a possibility for the first time. More than 73,000 people received housing counseling from National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC) member agencies during 2014, making it the highest volume experienced in the past five years. “Seeing that more people are realizing the value of housing counseling is a sign that the next wave of home buyers will be better prepared to preserve home ownership,” said Bruce McClary, spokesperson for the NFCC. Owning a home is a serious financial decision, requiring a stable budget and a clear understanding of the responsibility involved. That responsibility begins when searching for an affordable home, and lasts as long as home ownership is maintained. While a recent Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) survey revealed that 47% of home buyers are not comparing lenders, those who participate in housing counseling sessions or workshops are more likely to review multiple mortgage offers. Because they compare offers, they are likely to save more than those who only worked with a single lender. The NFCC recommends seeking the advice of a nonprofit housing counselor in order to learn about every aspect of purchasing and maintaining ownership before making any financial commitment. For help determining if home ownership is right for you, speak to a trained and certified counselor. To locate the NFCC Member Agency closest to you, dial (800) 388-2227, or go online to http://www.nfcc.org. For assistance in Spanish, call (800) 682-9832. The National Foundation for Credit Counseling (NFCC), founded in 1951, is the nation’s largest and longest serving national nonprofit financial counseling organization. The NFCC’s mission is to promote the national agenda for financially responsible behavior and build capacity for its members to deliver the highest quality financial education and counseling services. NFCC Members annually help millions of consumers through more than 600 community-based offices nationwide.

Announcement: GuitarControl.com Releases Basic Guitar Lesson on Power Chords – Beginner Guitar Lesson on Chords

brianjo 15

(PRWEB) November 15, 2014 “I want to give you another power chord lesson today”, says Johnson, “hopefully you are familiar with this basic shape”. Claude demonstrates the shape that he is using as follows; 7th fret of the 6th string with first finger, 9th fret of the 5th string with 3rd finger and 9th fret of the 4th string with 4th finger. “One way you can spice this up is to turn it into a quazy seventh chord”, says Johnson. Claude demonstrates how to do this by adding his 2nd finger to the 8th fret of the 4th string and alternating between the 8th and 9th fret by lifting his 4th finger on and off while strumming the whole chord shape. Claude continues by performing a variety of variances of this chord shape so you can get a lot of ideas for playing these types of power chords. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy rhythm guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com. A Power Chord on guitar is a two note chord consisting of the root note and the perfect fifth of the major scale. Sometimes called the fifth chord, these chords are a key element of rock music. The major scale, aka the Ionian Mode, is a seven tone diatonic scale that is widely used in western music.

Famed Musician Shares Four Decades of Wisdom in Xulon Book

brianjo 19

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 18, 2014 Author Olga Breeskin presents the new book, El Viejo Violin: Mi Testimonio, Sin Censura, ($ 19.99, paperback, 9781628717907; $ 30.99, hardcover, 9781628717914; $ 9.99, e-book, 9781628717921) which serves as an autobiography of the famed entertainer. Olga’s story begins in Mexico, where she initially obtains success as a violinist. Musical success and the lust for more fame and fortune led her to the Las Vegas spotlight, where she was offered to headline a show on the Vegas strip. Less than a year later, she finds herself with no job, and suddenly everything begins to hit rock bottom. Olga tried to fill the emptiness that she felt within her with alcohol. Anxiety and panic attacks, nightmares, and depression soon followed. However, the formed star would go on to encounter, first-hand, the love of Jesus. “I strongly believe that this message is valuable in every way,” states the author. “I am a witness of the power of the Gospel of Christ. I was once spiritually dead, and Christ resurrected my life.” Olga Breeskin was considered one of the most talented and versatile Latin American entertainers, having achieved a great career for forty years in the Mexican spotlight. In 2007, suicidal and sunken by addiction, financial meltdown, and severe depression, Olga was struck by the grace and mercy of Christ—who saved her from eternal damnation. Today, Olga gratefully serves her Savior and Redeemer as an evangelist to all nations. This old and devalued violin (which the author uses as an analogy for her old life) has become a violin of worship, made to praise the Lord Jesus. Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world’s largest Christian self-publisher, with more than 12,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order El Viejo Violin: Mi Testimonio, Sin Censura through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The book is available online through xulonpress.com/bookstore, amazon.com, and barnesandnoble.com. Media Contact: Olga Breeskin, superolga96(at)hotmail(dot)com

Announcement: GuitarControl.com releases Blues Guitar Lesson on Dominant 7th Arpeggios – How to Play Dominant 7th Arpeggios on Guitar

brianjo 16

(PRWEB) November 17, 2014 “As you know the dominant seventh is very powerful in the blues”, says Johnson. Claude starts off this easy blues guitar lesson by demonstrating dominant seventh chords as a substitution for a major chord. Claude demonstrates the dominant 7th arpeggio as follows; 12th fret of the 5th string with 4th finger to the 11th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger, to the 9th fret of the 3rd string with first finger to the 12th fret with 4th finger to the 10th fret of the 2nd string with 2nd finger to the 9th fret of the first string with first finger and finally the 12th fret with 4th finger. Guitar TAB’s are available for this easy blues guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com. An arpeggio is when the notes of a chord are played separately in a sequence. The word comes from the Italian word apeggiare which means “to play on a harp”. A Dominant 7th chord or arpeggio is composed of the root, major third, perfect fifth and the minor seventh (flat seventh) notes of the major scale. Its function is to resolve to the tonic note or chord. The major scale, aka the Ionian Mode, is a seven tone diatonic scale that is widely used in western music.

Director Bille Woodruff tells how Beyonce & Kerry Washington were almost cast in Honey and why directing is better than sex on Maria Menounos Black Hollywood Live.

brianjo 19

Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2014 Bille Woodruff is quickly becoming Hollywood’s most sought-after director in entertainment. He always knew that he would be a star, but even with a full academic scholarship to the University of Maryland, it took him a long time to realize what he wanted to be. “I definitely didn’t grow up thinking I would be a director,” said Woodruff. “I was lucky enough, when I got to college to combine all the different things that I like by directing.” Woodruff credited his internship at Black Entertainment Television (BET) for shaping his career. “It was my real school,” he said. “I was studying radio, television and film [at UMD], but I started feeling like I was getting way more experience on the job at BET.” He got his directorial experience directing EPK’s and music videos. He recalls how excited he was to direct his first music video for a group called Blaze from New Jersey. The group included a link to singer Toni Braxton, whose videos he would later go on to direct. “Blaze had a song called ‘We Almost Lived Together’, it was a blending of house music and a little bit of hip-hop soul. Some of Woodruff’s most memorable music videos were the ones he directed for Toni Braxton, including her hit song ‘You’re Makin Me High.’ “She came to me and said, you should direct the video, and I said, really? She was the hottest thing out there at the time. The work that I’ve done with Toni really does stand out as some of my most favorite stuff because she trusted me so much.” Woodruff has been big on having a diverse cast in the movies he directs, going all the way back to his first feature film, Universal Pictures’ ‘Honey’, starring Jessica Alba. “It was almost Kerry Washington that was Honey. Before I even got attached, it was supposed to be Beyonce, but she couldn’t do it. I made it a Latin person; I wanted somebody that everyone could relate to.” Directing the erotic thriller ‘Addicted’ was Woodruff’s foray into a different genre. For him, directing such a sexy movie was “like an amazing orgasm. I was excited to do that film because I’m a huge fan of Alfred Hitchcock. I’ve been wanting to do something in that vain. It just showed a different side of me.” No matter how many films Woodruff makes, he never gets tired of seeing how audiences react to his work. “The biggest thing for me is seeing the audience react to the project. I just never get sick of that with any of my films.” Links to Bille Woodruff’s appearance on Black Hollywood Live can be found at: YouTube: http://youtu.be/aeYC3kHk5LQ?list=PLsewtEOygG8v7cu__oX4LAuba5wFdOYpI Site: http://www.blackhollywoodlive.com/2014/11/15/next-w-bille-woodruff-november-14th-2014-black-hollywood-live/ Itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/next/id625652561?mt=2 BHL Next – hosted by Megan Thomas, Cortez West and KiKi Ayers – airs every Friday and is available for free downloads on iTunes, BlackHollywoodLive.com, and also viewable on YouTube.
