David Overman-Karmic Contract
“The late fifties brought on the greatest change in consciousness,other than the internet, within the last 50 years, starting with the beatniks and culminating with the hippies. This generation woke up and asked, “What kind of world are you guys creating for us?” With the advent of birth control pills, nuclear weapons, an increasingly complex multicultural society and a new found sense of individuality,spirituality, freedom and love, the hippies realized, it’s not all about buying and getting, but, of  peace, love, service to humanity and the planet. What would John Lennon Do? But, was it all socially engineered? How did the awakening drift back to sleep, in today’s world of unquestioned authority and warmongering. Follow David in the reverse evolution of consciousness within the last 50 years, in his groundbreaking novel, Karmic Contract. Available at the Createspace bookstore and Amazon Kindle.”
“At the age of 15, David asked the Universe for the answers to all questions. His thoughts were replaced by “right” thoughts”, which resulted in a resolution of dualities, or of balancing them. in order not to be drawn in by the Hegelian Dialectic. In 1981,the RA material was channelled by a scientific team. The philosophy and way of the Universe, mirrored the information David received in 1971. The book is about service to others,as service to self, in a spiritual journey through the dimensions of the universe, as monism, a philosophical view shared by Albert Einstein, wherein the Creator is in all things, as All is One. The philosophy eliminates strife between the man made divisions between all humans regardless of race color creed or religion, by using empathy, and of being of service to others. This book needs to skyrocket, in order to heal the planet and avert nuclear holocaust, created by the blind acceptance of Abramic religions.
What are the odds that in an 8 dimension Universe, infinitely expanding and growing, that the Earth would be the center?

Northwest Florida Area
Agency On Aging, Inc.Serving As YourAging And Disability Resource Center

The Northwest Florida Area Agency on Aging, Inc. is a private non-profit corporation funded by the Federal Older Americans Act and State General Revenue through the Department of Elder Affairs (DOEA), serving senior residents 60 years old and older of Escambia, Santa Rosa, Walton and Okaloosa Counties. The Northwest Florida Area Agency on Aging, Inc., serves as the designated Aging and Disability Resource Center for our four county planning and service area (PSA 1).

The Northwest Florida Area Agency on Aging, Inc., Aging and Disability Resource Center is not a direct provider of health or social services but rather the administrative agency for our area. The Agency collaborates with community-based service providers in the planning, coordination, development and evaluation of programs and services currently available for those residents who are 60 years old and older. The Aging and Disability Resource Center provides information and referral services to the aging population and well as persons with developmental disabilities.

Through the Elder Helpline’s “one stop shop” the Aging and Disability Resource Center’s staff:

  1. Determines eligibility for Federal and state funded services;
  2. Responds to requests for information for aging persons as well as persons with developmental disabilities;
  3. Initiates appropriate referrals for available servicesfor aging persons and persons with developmental disabilities;
  4. Tracks clients through a centralized data management bank;
  5. Refers clients to the S.H.I.N.E. (Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders) program;
  6. Evaluates effectiveness, timeliness and availability of services requested and provided

All elders, persons with developmental disabilities and their families and community service agencies have access to the Information and Referral network. The Information and Referral Elder Helpline staff initially receives the all Aging and Disability Resource Center calls. Information requests may require a response as simple as a phone number or may involve research by the Information and Referral Specialist to provide the needed information. When a referral is needed, the Specialist will forward the consumer information and service request to the appropriate health or social service agency. The Specialist will call the consumer back within 14 days to see if the information/referral provided met the individual’s needs. If with the original Information and Referral call it appears that a consumer might benefit from services provided through the Florida Department of Elder Affairs aging network, the information is forwarded to the Intake Department of the Aging and Disability Resource Center. The consumer will be contacted and a telephone screening will be performed. The responses will be entered into a statewide computerized database and a “priority score” will be calculated for the consumer. The higher the priority score the more likely a client is to receive services from one of the aging network funded programs. When funding becomes available the client with the highest priority score becomes eligible to receive services. There may be times when a waiting list for services exists. Certain service programs may require a specific medical diagnosis, a consumer co-pay for the provision of services or the willingness to self-pay.

Pensacola Business Radio: Spotlight Episode-FRED LEVIN

Fred Levin gifts $550,000 to UWF to establish new institute
Pensacola, Fla. – April 17, 2017 Attorney and community advocate Fred Levin is investing $550,000 in the University of West Florida to establish the Reubin O’D. Askew Institute for Multidisciplinary Studies. The gift will also help the University purchase land to house the Institute.
The Institute will substantially further UWF’s leadership in STEAM initiatives – combined applications of science, technology, engineering, art and math. Activities within the Institute will include increased visibility of potential STEAM initiatives, partnerships with area schools and businesses, internships and research opportunities.
“This gift can be a game-changer for UWF,” said UWF President Martha Saunders. “It allows us to build on the existing strengths of the University to create one-of-a-kind approaches to teaching and learning. I am grateful for the trust Mr. Levin has placed in us.”
In addition, the Institute has the flexibility of supporting numerous opportunities for integrating humanities and social science disciplines toward solving community problems. It will draw on existing strengths of the University to inspire relevant research.
Reubin O’D. Askew was an American politician who served as the 37th governor of the state of Florida from 1971 to 1979. In 1974, he became the first governor in Florida history to be elected to a second consecutive four-year term. During his two terms as governor, Askew was primarily involved in tax reform, especially in the increase of homestead exemption and passage of the “Sunshine Amendment,” which called for full financial disclosure by public officials and candidates. In 1955, David Levin, Fred’s deceased older brother, and Askew founded the law firm of Levin & Askew. In 1961, Fred Levin joined the firm.
“Governor Askew, besides being a friend and a law partner, was one of those rare persons who lived the principles he spoke,” said Levin. “He would not abide a curse word on a tennis court, nor would he abide a false statement in a court of law. As Governor, his only guideline was to ask whether it was good for the people of Florida. If it was not the right thing to do, he would not do it, regardless the political fallout. There is a reason why he was the first Governor in modern Florida history to be re-elected for a second term. Hopefully, the students and faculty who come to know Governor Askew will be inspired to do good for its own sake, and to serve the people with the humility and dedication that he practiced.”
More than 20 years ago, Levin gifted an endowed professorship at UWF in honor of his father, Abe Levin, which is now worth more than $400,000. With the establishment of the Institute, this professorship will be directly associated with the Institute and will be dedicated to arranging visiting scientists, writers and creatives to enhance intellectual capital. The endowed professorship, his recent gift of $100,000 to support UWF Football and the $550,000 contribution to establish the Askew Institute total more than $1 million in giving.
Levin is one of the most successful trial attorneys in the country. He has received more than 25 jury verdicts in excess of $1 million, six of which were in excess of $10 million. He is best known for rewriting Florida’s Medicaid Third-Party Recovery Act to allow the state of Florida to recover billions of dollars from the tobacco industry for smoking-related illnesses. He is a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, an organization limited to 100 members throughout the country, and he has been listed in every edition of the publication, “Best Lawyers in America.”
Among his accomplishments, Levin was named The Trial Lawyer of the Year by the National Trial Lawyers for 2015. He was also inducted into the Trial Lawyers Hall of Fame in 2009, which is located at Temple Law School in Philadelphia. Other honors include receiving the Perry Nichols Award in 1994, which is the highest honor bestowed by the Florida Justice Association and is given in recognition for a person’s lifetime achievements in the pursuit of justice.
Levin’s tremendous professional success has enabled him to donate generously in support of higher education. In 1999, he donated $10 million to the University of Florida for the renaming of the Fredric G. Levin College of Law.

Tim Jones / Colorful Voices

Colorful Voices. Where DORMANT & DOUBTFUL becomes DONE!! Colorful Voices is fully committed to personal and professional development of those seeking an opportunity to succeed.

I’m Timothy M Jones, founder of Colorful Voices. At Colorful Voices, we recognize that the number one issue facing our service personnel whom have been sexually assaulted, is Trust. We have created educational training programming built from the inside out for victims and victim advocates. Our training’s assist victims and advocates in understanding the stigmas associated with sexual assault.
At Colorful Voices, we believe that, where colorful voices lay dormant and doubtful, with hope, healing, and action those voices and dreams become ignited.
As a male survivor of military sexual trauma, Timothy experienced several traumatic events that would impact his life for twenty years. Now thriver, we feel it is important that we take the lessons learned and assist others in understanding that sexual assault is not just a female issue… it is an issue that affects us ALL. Through our programs, we empower healing by restoring trust lost through this traumatic event. Our goal is to reignite the voices of our clients to aide them in their journey.
We are currently seeking speaking and/or training opportunities to engage and assist in helping to end the stigmas associated with military sexual trauma. I look forward to sharing our ideas so that we may further discuss opportunities to collaborate.

Morgan Terry / Pig Naughty Sauces

Pig Naughty Barbecue Sauces is a purveyor of fine barbecue sauces. Barbecue is our birthright and heritage, and our sauces are an extension of generations of Terry’s smoking meat to feed their growing families in rural North Alabama and the panhandle of Florida. When we started making sauce my wife and two kids would crowd around the kitchen in aprons with spoons out stretched to taste and critique the latest batch. Once my entire family approved, I knew we were onto something special.

That’s why the heart of Pig Naughty Sauces is family, and family comes in all iterations, of course. Our food and sauces have been shared with church members, local schools, and the people we work with. Because my family, like yours, is a diverse crowd with talents and interests that cover a broad spectrum, but one thing we all agree on is eating good food and letting our hair down every once in awhile. Our goal is to provide you with time tested and family approved barbecue sauces to elevate your barbecue to the next level. Whether you do your cooking in the backyard or on a competition BBQ rig, we know that Pig Naughty Sauces is the secret weapon you’ve been looking for. From the entire Terry Family, Smoke On!
