Diversity News Magazine founded and owned since 2011 by Esteban Steven Escobar files for domain name trademark!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEDiversity News Media Brands formerly Diversity News Publications publisher of Diversity News Magazine Org and Diversity News Magazine Dot Com files for Diversity News Magazine Dot Com trademark with the USPTO. Mr. Esteban Escobar aka Steven Escobar who is the owner and founder of Diversity News Magazine Dot Com files for company name and domain trademark.

During July – September 2019, Mr. Escobar was not able to pay the renewal fees to GoDaddy immediately due to financial hardship and litigation going at the moment. When Mr. Escobar was ready to renew its domain on September 2019 GoDaddy has already sold the domain to a guy overseas from Punjab, Pakistan who is a domain squatter. Immediately Mr. Escobar registered the domain name Diversity News Magazine Org while consulting with his colleagues and friends on ways to get back his Diversity News Magazine Dot com domain. Mr. Escobar was advised to trademark his domain name which he has done.

For your information, the domain squatter will first perform searches on the availability of domain names, which include business names, brand names, trademark names, or anything he or she feels will be valuable to the company willing to pay for. If it’s available, the individual buys the domain name, with the intent of selling it at a higher price to the owner of the business or the brand.

Sarah Jones who is currently violating our trademark domain name is a been a cybersquatting participant. Please note that she is not an employee, not an agent, not consultant, not a representative or is not part of Diversity News Magazine.com neither DiversityNewsMagazine.org or any other subsidiaries of Diversity News Media Brands. We ask that to be aware of possible fraud and scams where we are not to be held liable or responsible for the individual cybersquatting tactics.

For those people who does not know what Cybersquatting means, it means the practice of registering names, especially well-known company or brand names, as internet domains, in the hope of reselling them at a profit. It also means registering, trafficking in, or using an Internet domain name with bad faith intent to profit from the goodwill of a trademark belonging to someone else. The term is derived from “squatting“, which is the act of occupying an abandoned or unoccupied space or building that the squatter does not own, rent, or otherwise have permission to use.

So after purchasing the domain, the Pakistan domain squatter man contacted Mr. Escobar asking to give him access to his Diversity News Magazine Gmail account and wanted all his Diversity News Magazine social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, LinkedIn etc. The Pakistan middle east man offered Mr. Escobar $100 US Dollars for all his social media profile pages. However, this Pakistan domain squatter did purchase Diversity News Magazine Dot com because he needed to make a quick buck. The Pakistan cyber squatter has read online that Mr. Escobar needed money. The Pakistani Cyber squatter tried to Cybersquatting Mr. Escobar by asking him to sale all his social media profile accounts including Gmail for $100 US dollars. Mr. Escobar very well knows that his social media pages are worth more than $100 US dollars in fact he knows some of his pages are worth thousands of dollars.

Domain squatting is illegal. A domain squatter is blocking the rightful owner of the trademark or brand from acquiring the domain name and using it to increase his or her internet visibility.

The law looks at domain squatting as similar to holding a property (the domain name) in order to raise ransom, and it is considered a trademark infringement. If a domain squatter can’t prove a legal intent in owning the domain name, it is considered to be a bad faith registration, and he or she is considered guilty of domain squatting.

For those who does not know what Cybersquatting means, it means the practice of registering names, especially well-known company or brand names, as internet domains, in the hope of reselling them at a profit. The Pakistani guy contacted Mr. Escobar via Facebook and Twitter. One time the Pakistan man asked Mr. Escobar to buy back Diversity News Magazine Dot Com from him for a higher price.

Mr. Escobar has been keeping an eye on his domain and because he keeps getting emails from former readers, partners, affiliates and colleagues asking if he is still in charge of Diversity News Magazine Dot Com. So after consulting with various colleagues, on 3-31-2021, Mr. Escobar decided to trademark Diversity News Magazine name and Diversity News Magazine Dot Com domain.
Diversity News Magazine Dot Com and Diversity News Magazine Org are Mr. Escobar companies in the US. Mr. Escobar tells us that lots of middle east people are desperate to make a quick buck so they do this kind of illegal things. Mr. Escobar advices anyone reading this press release to secure your intellectual properties because out there in the battle field are desperate rats! who trying to benefit on others hard work. To the individual that purchase Diversity News Magazine Dot com domain from the domain squatter you know that’s illegal and if you are a good person, you should have contacted Mr. Escobar directly but not been a desperate rat with no brains to start your own media site! Perhaps you haven’t read the newspaper or seen the news online on how companies reach  to each other to purchase to make offers and an end buying legally those media companies.

So the Pakistan worm domain squatter man researched Mr. Escobar’s Diversity News Magazine Dot com and Diversity News Publications Dot com domains. The Pakistan worm domain squatter man found out that Mr. Escobar is been investing, running and promoting Diversity News Publications and Diversity News Magazine since 2003 to the present which is over 18 years. Diversity News Publications and Diversity New Magazine are known and recognized in Southern California by many organizations including government officials. In fact Diversity News Publications and Diversity New Magazine has received multiple awards and nominations in Southern California from non profit organizations and government officials.

Mr. Escobar wants to set the record clear that yes in deed he is the owner and founder of Diversity News Magazine, DiversityNewsMagazine.com name and domain. Diversity News Publications Dot Com and Diversity News Magazine Dot com were founded in 2003 in Los Angeles, CA. The name Diversity News Publications which owns Diversity News Magazine Dot com was a registered business entity in the City of Los Angeles and as well Diversity News Magazine. Diversity News Media Brands formerly Diversity News Publications is the publisher of Diversity News Magazine Dot Com and Diversity News Magazine Org. So Diversity News Magazine is known as a company name and a trademark as well. His founder and owner Mr. Esteban Escobar aka Steven Escobar is known for those company and domain names.

If you Google Diversity News Magazine Dot com and Diversity News Publications Dot com you will find that Mr. Steven Escobar information is listed along in various website directories as the owner and publisher with his contact information such as emails and telephone number. Also lots of marketing and public relations organizations email their press releases for publication to Mr. Escobar to be published on his domains Diversity News Magazine Dot com, Diversity News Publications Dot com and Diversity News Magazine Org.

So now that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has published that Mr. Esteban Escobar has filed for the trademark DIVERSITY NEWS MAGAZINE – DIVERSITYNEWSMAGAZINE.COM. Mr. Escobar issue a Trademark Infringement – Cease and Desist and Domain Trademark Infringement – Cease and Desist to the known Registrar and Hosting companies as well the contact in the domain Whois database which is mostly hidden as private. So Mr. Escobar received a response from the person that may have bought Diversity News Magazine Dot com from the worm Pakistan domain squatter. The person is refusing to cooperate by transferring Diversity News Magazine Dot com to Mr. Escobar hosting company. Also one of the hosting companies representative has responded stating that the trademark is not true enforceable because is in process at the USPTO.

Diversity News Magazine State of CA Assembly award

Mr. Escobar just want his the infringement person or individuals to stop using his domain name. Mr. Escobar is the one who has expended many years and thousands of dollars on Diversity News Magazine Dot com in the domain marketing, SEO, performance and online footprint. He would not do something like that if he is not interested on it. So the domain squatter knew what he was doing just to get a quick buck. Mr. Escobar bumped with a woman of the name of Sarah John who has is hiding her identity. Mr. Escobar thinks Sarah John may be the one that make a deal with the worm Pakistan domain squatter by buying the domain from him. That makes Sarah John a domain squatter herself!

For those of you reading this press release let me tell you that Sara John or any aka’s she may use is not the owner of Diversity News Magazine Dot com We have requested proof of registration and ownership from Sara John and she haven’t comply neither is not cooperating. Sara John keeps infringing Mr. Escobar trademark name. Sara John Cybersquatting is illegal and you must transfer the domain to Mr. Escobar because he never gave up on his domain. To those individuals or companies that are paying or sponsoring Sarah John to publish guest articles on Diversity News Magazine Dot Com I ask to stop because Sara John is not the owner of the trademark Diversity News Magazine neither an agent, nor an employee of Diversity News Magazine. Mr. Escobar will ask the Icann organization to shut the website down if Sarah John doesn’t transfer to him before the end of July 2021.

Also please note that Sara John or whomever she is affiliated does has any rights and do not own Diversity News Magazine dot com and be cautions of fraud or scams. Mr. Escobar does not want to consider a lawsuit against the infringer, but he is considering shutting down website Diversity News Magazine Dot Com.

Editorial and Opinions Education: State and National Shield Laws in the USA

First, we want to define for you what an Editorial piece means:

An editorialleading article (UK) or leader (UK), is an opinion piece written by the senior editorial staff or publisher of a newspapermagazine, or any other written document. Editorials may be supposed to reflect the opinion of the periodical.[citation needed] In Australian and major United States newspapers, such as The New York Times[1] and The Boston Globe,[2] editorials are often classified under the heading “opinion”.

Illustrated editorials may appear in the form of editorial cartoons.[3]

Typically, a newspaper’s editorial board evaluates which issues are important for their readership to know the newspaper’s opinion.[4]

Editorials are typically published on a dedicated page, called the editorial page, which often features letters to the editor from members of the public; the page opposite this page is called the op-ed page and frequently contains opinion pieces by writers not directly affiliated with the publication. However, a newspaper may choose to publish an editorial on the front page. In the English language press, this is done rarely and only on topics considered especially important; however, it is more common in some European countries such as SpainItaly, and France.[5]

In the field of fashion publishing, the term has been adapted to refer to photo-editorials – features with often full-page photographs on a particular theme, designer, model or other single topic, with or (as a photo-essay) without accompanying text.[6]

Second, we want to define for you what an Opinion piece means:

In general, an opinion is a judgment, viewpoint, or statement about matters commonly considered to be subjective.

What distinguishes fact from opinion is that facts are verifiable, i.e. can be objectively proven to have occurred. An example is: “United States of America was involved in the Vietnam War” versus “United States of America was right to get involved in the Vietnam War”. An opinion may be supported by facts, in which case it becomes an argument, although people may draw opposing opinions from the same set of facts. Opinions rarely change without new arguments being presented. It can be reasoned that one opinion is better supported by the facts than another by analyzing the supporting arguments.[1] In casual use, the term opinion may be the result of a person’s perspectiveunderstanding, particular feelings, beliefs, and desires. It may refer to unsubstantiated information, in contrast to knowledge and fact.

Collective or professional opinions are defined as meeting a higher standard to substantiate the opinion.

Editorial opinion[edit]

An “editorial opinion” is the stated opinion of a newspaper or of its publisher, as conveyed on the editorial page.

And Fourth California Shield Law:

In California, article I, section 2(b) of the California Constitution and Evidence Code section 1070 provide an immunity from being held in contempt to reporters, editors, publishers, and other people connected with or employed by newspapers, magazines, press associations and wire services, as well as radio or TV news reporters.

The California shield law applies to both the source of information (“confidential sources”) and to “unpublished information” such as notes, out-takes, unpublished photographs and tapes.

When a criminal defendant seeks information protected by the shield law, the courts have set up a “balancing test” which weighs how important the information is to the criminal defendant, whether the defendant can get the information elsewhere, and other factors.  See Delaney v. Superior Court (1990) 50 Cal. 3d 785.

On the other hand, when the prosecution seeks information in a criminal law, the shield law is absolute.  Miller v. Superior Court (1999) 21 Cal. 4th 883.  And in a civil case where the press is not a party, the immunity from contempt is also absolute – there’s no balancing test.  New York Times v. Superior Court (1990) 51 Cal. 3d 453.   This case helps journalists avoid being forced to be professional witnesses instead of professional journalists.

Does the shield law cover bloggers?  Good question.  The California shield law covers people “connected with or employed upon” a “newspaper, magazine, or other periodical publication, or by a press association or wire service.”   That question is likely to be litigated in the near future.

Additional information on the California Shield Law, Evidence Code Section 1070

1070. (a) A publisher, editor, reporter, or other person connected with or employed upon a newspaper, magazine, or other periodical publication, or by a press association or wire service, or any person who has been so connected or employed, cannot be adjudged in contempt by a judicial, legislative, administrative body, or any other body having the power to issue subpoenas, for refusing to disclose, in any proceeding as defined in Section 901, the source of any information procured while so connected or employed for publication in a newspaper, magazine or other periodical publication, or for refusing to disclose any unpublished information obtained or prepared in gathering, receiving or processing of information for communication to the public.

(b) Nor can a radio or television news reporter or other person connected with or employed by a radio or television station, or any person who has been so connected or employed, be so adjudged in contempt for refusing to disclose the source of any information procured while so connected or employed for news or news commentary purposes on radio or television, or for refusing to disclose any unpublished information obtained or prepared in gathering, receiving or processing of information for communication to the public.

(c) As used in this section, “unpublished information” includes information not disseminated to the public by the person from whom disclosure is sought, whether or not related information has been disseminated and includes, but is not limited to, all notes, outtakes, photographs, tapes or other data of whatever sort not itself disseminated to the public through a medium of communication, whether or not published information based upon or related to such material has been disseminated.

Editor’s Note: Now you have it. Educate yourself if you do not want the “Real Press or Media” teams to report of what they saw then make your event private and remember press or media representatives are not your publicist and is against journalism code of ethics to accept payment for exchange on an exemplary article. Those are not real journalists and they out of the blue bought a video camera or  photo camera and became media or press but has no direction or guidelines of the rules set by professional organizations for Journalists and Media or Press Associations such as: http://www.naa.orghttp://newamericamedia.org/network/association, SPJLos Angeles Press Club and many more. They have no idea the formats how to write. They have no education on the field. So sad those desperate publicists accepts anyone that claims to be media or press!

Our franchisees work tirelessly every day to empower young women to be confident and to be their personal best while raising awareness and millions of dollars for philanthropic endeavors.

While world politics and other influences will undoubtedly play a role, the pageant will always seek to transcend controversy. It is unfortunate that recent events beyond our control have only served to negatively impact the women who participate in the pageant, our state directors, our sponsors and our fans. We want our supporters to know we remain committed to them and we will be conducting the pageant, regardless of the current situation. We are moving forward, full-steam ahead as planned for the next two weeks, culminating in the crowning of a new Miss USA on July 12th .

EDITOR’S NOTE: You see the show must go on. Here at Diversity News Magazine, Diversity News TV and Diversity News Radio we will try to keep you updated on any news developments and possible coverage of Miss USA and Miss Universe. If a network picks the broadcast will you consider to watch them? of if they broadcast the show online? Will you watch? Please leave your comments.

Wardrobe Spring Cleaning

Photo credit to: ShutterStock

The weather is warming up, people are starting to spend more time outdoors, and it’s about to be everyone’s favorite time of year. With spring just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your spring cleaning. And while cleaning out your oven is essential, it’s not that interesting to read about. So we’re going to take a look at another, often neglected area of spring cleaning, cleaning out your wardrobe.

When was the last time you went through your clothes and decided to get rid of all of those clothes you never wear? Can’t remember? You’re not alone. Many of us just let the clothes pile up over time with the thought that hey, we’ll wear this old shirt again someday, right? Wrong. You need to cut the cord and realize that the clothes you don’t like now, you’re never going to like. Spring cleaning is the time to be judicious, and that means taking a hard look at what should stay and what should go. Need some help getting started? We’ve put together a little checklist to guide you along the way. Check it out:

Start with the Basics
Need a place to start? Go for the socks, tee shirts, and underwear drawer, as these are the items that tend to go unnoticed for the longest time. And trust us, you don’t want to let them go that long. In most cases, you could use a refresher on your socks and underwear. Instead of just getting the same plastic package from the department store, treat yourself to something a little higher quality this time around. Try something like VK Nagrani designer underwear that you’ll actually enjoy wearing. With higher quality materials, more interesting styles, and a more flattering cut, you won’t miss your old undies, we promise.

Move into Outerwear
Once you’ve covered the basics, you should move into your outerwear collection. As the weather is getting warmer and you’re going to be moving your jackets to the back of the closet, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about which items are worth storing, and which are just taking up space. If you live somewhere exceptionally cold, we understand holding onto a few extra layers for the sake of warmth, but for most people, if you have more than four jackets, you’re probably never wearing them. Do yourself a favor and toss the ones that you haven’t taken out in years. They’re just a bulky waste of space, and the people at Goodwill can give them to someone who will appreciate them much more.

Judge Your Footwear
Out of everything in your wardrobe, your shoes tend to age the fastest. With the constant contact with rain, pavement, dirt, and grime, your shoes show their age very quickly and very noticeably. While you might have broken in your favorite pair, they probably don’t have the same luster they did when you bought them. It’s ok to say goodbye to your shoes, they were never made to last forever.

When in Doubt, Toss It
The golden rule of spring wardrobe cleaning, if there is such a thing, is that when you’re not sure if you should hold onto something or not, you shouldn’t. Donating your old clothes and shoes is a therapeutic exercise and helps set the stage for becoming the person you want to be. In the spirit of spring renewal, starting over with a new wardrobe is refreshing. You’ll be relieved of that guilty feeling when you see a shirt you haven’t worn in ages, and you’ll make room for some new things to freshen up your look.

Why Online Bingo is So Popular

People have such a huge choice when it comes to playing online games, it may come as a surprise to find out that more than 100 million people are registered on different online bingo sites around the world.

And whereas bingo used to have a reputation for being an old people’s game, according to information released by Tablet Bingo, it appears that bingo players are getting progressively younger. In 2003, 46% of players were under the age of 45, but in 2013, that figure had increased to 62%. Far from being an old people’s game, it would seem that bingo is now a game for the youngsters amongst us.

Why is it then, when there’s such a variety of games to choose to play online – and many of them for free – that so many people make the decision to sign up to play a game you have to pay to join in, and then only have such a small chance of winning?

There are lots of reasons why people choose bingo over other games. Here are just a few of them.

Simplicity is the key

When you choose to play an online game, you don’t necessarily want to tire out your brain cells to do so. There are plenty of times when playing an online game is more about being entertained than having to put your thinking cap on. For example, if you’ve had a busy and stressful day at work, or you’ve been at home with the kids and they’ve been asking you questions all day, it’s sometimes nice to have a game that you can zone out with, and bingo allows you to do just that.

The game has always been easy to play. In the bingo hall version, you’d listen to the number calls and mark off your cards as quickly as possible in order to be the first to shout bingo. Online, you only have to choose a game and the card (or cards) you wish to buy. The software does the number daubing for you; leaving you free to sit back and relax. The only tension you might feel is if your card is getting filled up and it looks like you might win – but that’s an exciting kind of stress!

We all like value for money

Although we might be willing to pay for our online gaming fix, we all appreciate getting good value for money – and that’s just what you get at the major online bingo sites like Winner Bingo and Instant Bingo. At Winner Bingo, for example, as well as offering a welcome bonus to new players who make a first deposit, there are also plenty of free games included in the round-the-clock schedule. Although the games are free, they still lead to real money jackpots, so they are always worth joining in. It’s the same on most of the major bingo sites – free games are a way of rewarding customer loyalty and ensuring that players won’t move to a different site.

You get to chat too

Part of the fun of playing online bingo is that as you don’t need to concentrate on the game, you get to socialise while you play. That’s why bingo is such a popular choice. You may find yourself at a loose end, bored with no-one to talk to – login to your favourite bingo site and you’ll have more company than you know what to do with in a matter of moments. Bingo chat rooms always have a fun atmosphere, thanks to the presence of a chat moderator as well as the other players. And when things get a little quiet, the moderator will often start off some chat games where you might win extra cash or a free entry to another bingo game.

For all these reasons and more, it’s not so surprising that so many people around the world enjoy bingo today.

We decided to contact them on Wednesday, November 16, 2011 with the following email:

“Not sure if somebody have brought to your attention the for around 3 weeks we have seen multiple porn photos of man and female showing in our Facebook Walls. Also we notice your website is not secure anymore. Can you please provide me a reason what is happening and what are you doing for resolving this problem? You know the minors are on Facebook and for them to see man or female private parts is not right at young age.”

“We’ve identified many of the actors responsible parties and we will ensure appropriate action will be taken against those responsible. ” said Facebook spokesperson.

Also, here is an earlier statement from Facebook that describes more background on what happened.

“Protecting the people who use Facebook from spam and malicious content is a top priority for us. Recently, we experienced a spam attack that exploited a browser vulnerability. Our team responded quickly and we have eliminated most of the spam caused by this attack. We are now working to improve our systems to better defend against similar attacks in the future.

What happened?

During this spam attack users were tricked into pasting and executing malicious javascript in their browser URL bar causing them to unknowingly share this offensive content. No user data or accounts were compromised during this attack.

Our engineers have been working diligently on this self-XSS vulnerability in the browser. We’ve built enforcement mechanisms to quickly shut down the malicious Pages and accounts that attempt to exploit it. We also been put those impacted through educational checkpoints so they know how to protect themselves. We’ve put in place backend measures to reduce the rate of these attacks and will continue to iterate on our defenses to find new ways to protect people.

What people can do to protect themselves?

1.            Never copy and paste unknown code into your address bar

2.            Always use an up-to-date browser

3.            Use the Report links on the site to flag suspicious behavior or content on your or your friends accounts”

Tips and Tricks to Make you a Better Date

Honesty is the best policy. Photo credit to: Celestine Chua

Dating can be quite a challenge for some people, especially if they’ve been out of the dating scene for a while.

Of course, there can be many reasons why you might be out of dating practice. Perhaps you’ve been single for a long time and now decided to change that, or maybe you were in a long-term relationship that’s only recently come to an end.  

Either way, the prospect of going through those early dating experiences again can be quite scary. It’s almost like having to go through those awkward teenage years all over again.

One thing that definitely won’t help you in today’s dating world is a lack of confidence. So, why not take a look at the ideas below on how to boost your dating confidence before you dive back into it all?

There are some basic principles when it comes to dating that will help anyone who’s looking for love.

1. Be honest

We all learn as kids that we should always tell the truth, so why treat dating any differently? You may want to pretend you’re a bit younger than you are, or that your job’s a bit more high-powered than it actually is, but if the person you meet on a date becomes a part of your life, will you want to keep up the fibs?

Being honest about who you are and what you believe in will allow you to be more confident – and that in turn will make you more appealing to any potential partner.

2. Don’t let your expectations get out of control

It might be nice to meet the person of your dreams on that first date, but realistically, it’s a slim chance. You might have better odds with the lottery! So instead of putting too much hope on a date, treat it as a social event – a way to meet someone new and have some fun. If it turns out to be the beginning of a new relationship, that’s great. If not, you haven’t lost anything, and you’ll have gotten some dating practice under your belt, ready for the next one.

3. Learn to read the signs

Sometimes, people are so keen for a date to work out well that it’s almost as if they have blinkers on and miss the signals the other person is giving them. Learn to read the signs of what your date thinks of you. The way someone looks at you while you’re talking, the way they move their hands or choose to sit, can all be indications of how they feel about you.

4. Remember, it’s not all about you

People going on a date often focus on what the other person will think of them, and consequently can get quite anxious about what kind of impression they’ll make. To help avoid this, think about what you want to know about your date. What do they do for a living, what do they like doing in their spare time, where would their dream vacation take them? However, you don’t spend the whole night just quizzing each other – so perhaps have a couple of current affairs topics in mind to discuss – it’ll take the pressure off you both.

The most useful advice for anyone going out on a date is to relax and just be yourself. That way, whoever you’re meeting will get to spend a nice evening with you, and get to know you. Wherever the date takes you, it’ll be some dating practice and that experience will be useful for any future dates.
