“Tombstone Pillow” Short Movie It Is Must Watch Because It Is A True Story

Updated poster of Tombstone Pillow Movie 2019

This past weekend, I saw the short movie Tombstone Pillow. Although it is short. you will definitely become inspired and learn something memorable!

This movie is mainly about people in the Philippines living in a cemetery, and a wealthy widow. The starring roles are played by executive producer, singer, author and actress Lourdes Duque Baron as Olivia and actress Kendra Sison De Mesa as Maria Del Carmen.

Olivia goes to the cemetery to visit her husband’s tomb and an angry mob meets her. She then meets Maria Del Carmen and asks her what she is doing at her husband’s tomb. Olivia and Maria Del Carmen have no time to talk because the angry mob is heading towards her. So, Maria Del Carmen helps Olivia to flee the angry mob.

After a couple of days pass, Olivia remembers Maria Del Carmen teaching her what has real value in life. So, one night she goes looking for her at the cemetery, but the people confront her again. Olivia tells them about her past and they leave her alone. However, she finds out that Maria Del Carmen has been dead for many years.

“Tombstone Pillow” features people living in the Philippines Manila North Cemetery. We should never take for granted what we have here in the US, because we are fortunate to live in a country where our “We the People” vote counts. Also, the US government cares about us.

Directors Daniel Lir and Bayou Bennett do a great job by bringing an inspiring drama to the big screen. They also introduce us to actresses Lourdes Duque Baron and Kendra Sison De Mesa. “Tombstone Pillow” serves as a great learning lesson as well as entertainment. It is a colorful film with a very little cast and few plot twists. However, the timeline is a bit unclear at times. For a number of scenes, I felt things were rushed and it was hard to tell whether it had been hours, days or months that had passed since the last time a given character had been on screen. I think the directors should have used titles before new scenes to identify hours and days.

The one actress that gave this reviewer pause was Kendra Sison De Mesa. She seemed to have fun acting along actress Lourdes Duque Baron. It was laughable when she gave the sandals to Olivia to run in the cemetery and Kendra threw her Christian Louboutin shoes in the trash. I also enjoyed how she took Olivia’s Gucci sunglasses to wear them

You need to watch this movie to understand what happens with Olivia and why Maria Del Carmen dies so fast. “Tombstone Pillow” is worthy to watch because what they show is a true story.

Choosing the Best Dry Shampoo for Your Hair

Since time immemorial, we have always considered our hair as our crowning glory. Our hair simply completes our look the moment we glance at the mirror. Our hair makes us look extraordinary and distinct. At times, it serves as a mark for people to know who we are. Moreover, it makes a lot of difference to have it in varied styles, with various accessories, and with different lengths. 

Hair adds up beauty to our unique facial features. Also, we look better on some clothes with hair down while on others, we pair them with a bun or a ponytail. Furthermore, it makes us look more exciting than usual when we wear our hair in different ways and different colors. Therefore, we must admit that it also builds confidence and adds grace to wear beautiful, gorgeous hair.

Hair Dryness

However, due to several factors, our hair may be exposed to different toxins, chemicals, and other triggers that might bring about damages. One of the most common problems we experience is hair dryness and dryness of hair happens because of many reasons. It is possible to have it when we lose hair moisture when we use styling tools and materials that operate through induction. The heat from these tools and materials penetrate our hair and dries it faster than usual which sometimes goes beyond what our hair can handle. Our hair becomes unmanageable, frizzy, and worst, damaged. 

Also, strong shampoos, conditioners, other hair treatments, and even tools may contribute to the loss of essential oils. They may contain a large number of chemicals that may cause serious hair damages other than dryness. Brushing and washing too much can also take away naturally produced hair oils. This is in opposition to the myth we believe in about brushing our hair a hundred times before going to bed. It can cause our hair a lot more damages than good.

Additionally, poor nutrition can be a factor in hair dryness. If we continually skip on the kinds of food that give our hair ample nutrients, then this is unhelpful. Finally, the weather with low humidity also takes a toll on our hair as it absorbs moisture from our hair which makes hair difficult to manage, resulting in troublesome and fly-away hair ends. These are a few of the many triggers that may cause hair dryness. Some additional information might be helpful to you as you click here The 5 biggest hair myths.

Temporary Home Remedies

Fortunately, there are several supplies in our pantry that can help us with hair dryness. Avocados, for instance, have nutrients that are helpful to hair growth and beautification. It contains essential vitamins, minerals, and even fatty acids necessary to make our hair healthy-looking. We just need to mix it with egg and let it stand on our hair for 20 minutes and rinse it thoroughly. Using this once a week will bring our hair glow and luster.

Butter or Shea butter can be another temporary cure for hair dryness. All we need to do is spread a generous amount to our hair, leave it for half an hour, and then rinse it. Olive oil also contains fatty acids and antioxidants that can aid hair dryness. All we need to do is massage ½ cup of olive oil to our hair, let it stand for 45 minutes, and rinse. After use, you’ll see a great improvement.

We can also use the tea when rinsing our hair. Different types of tea will cater to different colors of hair (blonde: chamomile; brunette and grey: black tea; red: Rooibos tea). Apple cider vinegar can also function as a mask for damaged hair. Aside from the natural remedies mentioned above, there are several other suggested items that you can use. This site, https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/321850, will give you the detailed steps and procedures in making other temporary home remedies for dry and damaged hair. 

Damaged Hair Repair

When hair is damaged, there is somewhat a missing gap within. So, here are three tips that many experts give regarding the repair of damaged hair. First, we should be careful when using accessories and we should consider resting our hair from the push and pull when using these accessories. Then, we can lessen activities that require us to wash our hair more often. Finally, after a bath, it is advisable never to rub our hair with towels. 

Easy and Lasting Solutions to Hair Problems

Although there are a lot of home remedies and hair damage repair tips that we can work on and use, I still believe that hair dryness and other serious hair problems should be given a lasting solution. Asidefrom the fact that these home remedies are temporary, they also will take much of our time in terms of preparation and administration. We also note the fact that, although these are available in our pantry, we still are about to figure out how it will work on our hair type. It might bring us to a trial by error experimentation, which may lead to more damages to our hair.  

There is no assurance that one size fits all. We are lucky because there are reliable and user- friendly products available in the market. One good brand, Keranique, offers an array of hair products such as shampoo, conditioner, treatments, and styling tools that cater to specific hair concerns and needs. We need not worry because its ingredients are FDA approved. 

It is also clinically proven to reduce and stop hair loss. This product is widely used and over 2,109,412 women trust this brand. It is proven to regrow, strengthen, repair, and protect hair. It also caters to women from different age brackets and regardless of hair color or age, if you are experiencing hair damage or hair loss, this product is certainly for you. 

Keranique Hair Growth System includes the following: 

  • Scalp Stimulating Shampoo 

  • Volumizing Keratin Conditioner

  • Hair Regrowth Treatment

  • Lift & Repair Treatment Spray

PLUS, Two Bonus Styling Gifts:

  • Detangling Comb & Volumizing Brush

According to Dr. Sonia Batra, a well-known hair expert, the shampoo, conditioner, and the Lift and Repair Spray of Keranique contain ingredients that infuse the hair with Keratin Amino Complex that strengthen the hair shafts and protects the hair from damages caused by the environment. 

The shampoo and conditioner deeply cleanse the hair from roots to tips which make our hair thicker, healthier, silky, and manageable. Hair Growth Treatment is the solution for women who have hair loss concerns. It revitalizes hair follicles enabling them to regrow. The Lift and Repair Treatment Spray completes this package.

With the many products available in the market, we are allowed to choose the best among them. With Keranique, we do not need to experiment on our hair because this brand assures us of achieving the expectations we have in mind. It makes us achieve gorgeous-looking hair.

Billboard Hit Singer-Songwriter Fawn Wins Multiple Honors at the 2020 Just Plain Folks Music Awards

On January 18, 2021, Stonedef Records, Inc., announces that The JPF Music Awards (Just Plain Folks) were announced on December 28, 2020 and that Billboard hit singer/songwriter Fawn® won Best Dance Album, Best Dance Song and placed in the runner-up and finalist positions in three other song and album categories.

Billboard Hit Singer-Songwriter Fawn Wins Multiple Honors at the 2020 JPF Music Awards

Due to COVID – 19, the JPF Music Awards were announced on December 28, 2020 online on the JPF Music YouTube channel at 8pm EST. Winners, runner-ups and the top four album finalists and top six song finalists in each category were disclosed within a two hour and eighteen minute program by JPF Music Organization founder Brian Austin Whitney.

There were 4,203 judges from around the world listening to 71,700 album entries and over 230,000 song entries, with a multi-genre mix of music categories, 63 song categories and 75 album categories.  Fawn® won Best Dance Album, “Idiosyncratic” and Best Dance Single, “Small” and won runner-up for Best Holiday Song, “Christmas Time”, the finalist positions for Best Alternative Song, “Over” and Best Holiday Album, “Angels We Have Heard On High.”

Fawn® said: “As a songwriter and independent artist, having this type of recognition is such a blessing. When I learned about the odds of winning or placing in the top five categories, I was blown away. These honors I’ve been given, are from real world listeners and that means a lot to me. I am indebted to Marty Panzer and Pat Pattison for their lyrical mentorship and John Bettis for his encouraging support over the years. I am so grateful an organization Like JPF Music exists. They are a light at the end of a very long, dark tunnel.”

Billboard Hit Singer-Songwriter Fawn Wins Multiple Honors at the 2020 JPF Music Awards

At the online JPF Music Awards, Whitney said: “If you’re a nominee and you don’t show up in the finals tonight, don’t feel bad. It was harder to get a nomination in our awards by the sheer number of entries than it is to get a nomination in the Grammys, so it’s a big achievement.”

If you happen to be in the top six or the top four, I hope that you’ll celebrate! For the first time ever, we have an Honorable Mention category for songs or albums that just missed getting into the top finishers by a single vote or less. 2020 has been rough on everybody and I think this was a great way to have a really positive and upbeat ending to the year. We want to bring as much positive attention as we can to these talents.”

City of Los Angeles Announces New LGBTQ Certification For Business Assistance Virtual Network

On Tuesday, June 25, 2019, The City of Los Angeles announced the addition of LGBTQ certification to the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network(BAVN). BAVN is a free online portal provided by the City of Los Angeles and the Mayor’s Office of Economic Development that connects businesses with City contracting opportunities. The new qualifications will allow for statistical tracking of certifications to ensure that contracts reflect the diversity of the City.

“I applaud the City’s efforts to expand opportunities in public procurement for our local business community. LGBTQ certification is another step towards further leveling the playing field for small and diverse businesses,” said Los Angeles Board of Public Works President Kevin James. “BAVN is a free and accessible resource that allows us to provide these businesses with the proper tools to succeed and thrive in Los Angeles.”

The National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce is the exclusive, third-party certification body that will work to verify that eligible businesses are majority-owned by LGBTQ individuals. Once this process is complete, businesses can sign up through BAVN to be notified when contracts are available for bidding and receive guidance through the bidding process. The Bureau of Contract Administration, led by Inspector of Public Works John L. Reamer, Jr., verifies documentation and oversees contracts for the City of Los Angeles.

BAVN currently offers certification for disadvantaged business owners; disabled veterans; minority-owned businesses; women-owned businesses; small, emerging, and local businesses; and more. This allows small and diverse businesses the opportunity to compete with large corporations for contracts. The new LGBTQ certification program will go into effect in the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2019-20 beginning on July 1st.

This announcement comes during the annual celebration of LGBTQ Heritage Month. Additionally, the Los Angeles Board of Public Works recognized a few of the outstanding men and women from the Department of Public Works as part of the month’s festivities.

“Los Angeles has been at the forefront of championing equality since 1967 when Silver Lake’s Black Cat became the site of one of the first LGBTQ demonstrations,” said Los Angeles Board of Public Works Vice President Cecilia Cabello. “While tremendous strides have been made since then, the fight for equal opportunity continues. I’m honored to recognize a few of our LGBTQ brothers and sisters who dedicate their lives to enhancing the quality of life for Angelenos and advocating for inclusiveness in the workplace and beyond.”

The LGBTQ Heritage Month honorees were recognized for their professional accomplishments and contributions to raising awareness of human and civil rights in and out of the workplace. From maintaining our streets and sewers to fixing potholes and collecting trash, these honorees are making a significant impact in their respective fields:

  • Gaye Chapman, Senior Electrical Inspector, Bureau of Contract Administration: serves as lead project inspector for the L.A. Wastewater Integrated Network Systems (LAWINS) project involving multiple wastewater facilities. She also provides training and guidance to other Bureau of Contract Administration inspectors.

  • Doug Walters, Chief Sustainability Officer & Chief Resiliency Officer, LA Sanitation and Environment: a proven leader in sustainability and environmental issues who formerly served as Co-Chair of the City’s Gay & Lesbian United Employees organization where he spent 4 years advocating for inclusionary policies for LGBTQ employees within City Departments.

  • Les Amer, Accounting Clerk, StreetsLA: supports the street pavement preservation program and sidewalk construction program. His work ensures the delivery of materials essential to paving more than 2,200 lane miles and constructing 500,000 square feet of sidewalks annually.
