Livio Bisterzo, Proprietor Of Hippeas

Healthy Snacks

A new brand of Organic Chickpea Puffs, called Hippeas, has officially launched in the United States. They are looking to revolutionize the snacking industry with their quality products and innovative practices. The snacks are described as light and crunchy. They contain high amounts of protein and fiber. The snack is low-calorie, certified organic, gluten-free, GMO free, kosher, and vegan friendly.

Hippeas snacks are made from USDA organic certified chickpeas and are available in six unique flavors. These flavors include: Far Out Fajita, with chili, paprika and cumin puffs, Pepper Power, with pepper and a sprinkle of sea salt, Happenin’ Hickory with sweet tomato, onion and garlic with a hint of smoked hickory, Maple Haze, syrupy sweet puffs with a savory edge, Vegan White Cheddar, cheese puff, without the cheese, Sriracha Sunshin, tangy-sweet spicy jalapeño and paprika puffs.

Livio Bisterzo, CEO of Green Park Brands has had very good things to say about the company’s new product, “Hippeas has everything it takes to become the next globally loved snack brand. We truly believe that HIPPEAS embodies every major snacking global trend, while delivering a very powerful, emotional storyline to our millennial audience.”

HIPPEAS and Livio Bisterzo does not want to follow the other snack brands’ marketing. “Tastes good” and “do good” are two phrases that the company likes to keep together and base their marketing on. The company’s slogan is “Peas, Love & Giving Back,” and so far, they seem to have lived by it, having partnered with Farm Africa, a charity working to end hunger and bring prosperity to villages in Africa. For each pack sold, the brand has pledged to donate a portion of the profits to help support chickpea farmers in Africa according to Livio Bisterzo. They help the farmers grow and sell plants to get out of poverty, assisting them in building a better life for themselves and their families.

HIPPEAS Organic Chickpea Puffs in Far Out Fajita and Vegan White Cheddar are available now at certain Starbucks® locations around the country, and will soon come to other retailers, including Whole Foods and Amazon.

Waiakea Water Vs. City Water

Waiakea

A lot of people have begun to realize that bottled water is not as healthy as one would think. For one thing, plastic bottles have issues in it that can actually cause more harm than good. Also, a lot of bottled water does not contain water from high quality sources.

Instead, the water that is presented through the bottle is water from the city which is filtered. Therefore, a lot of people are getting ripped off. However, not all bottled water is bad. There are some companies that actually take the time to make sure that they are presenting their customers with high quality water.

According to Specialty Food, one company is Waiakea water. Waiakea water is gathered from the volcanic source. The water is slowly filtered through the source. As a result, not only is the water pure, but it is also filled with electrolytes that are helpful for human health.

This results in not only a great taste, but even a greater set of health benefits. For one thing, there is no type of harm that comes with the water that is going to cancel out any of the benefits that come with Waiakea water.

One thing that people will notice is the taste. The taste of this type of water is truly pure. There is no hint of an after taste. This is compared to the subtle taste of contamination from bottled water. One must not even go into tap water. That type of water is filled with plenty of contaminants which contribute to a rather nasty taste.

Waiakea does not have any of this. Instead, there is a pure taste that has a sort of quality that makes people want more of this type of water. This is one of the reasons that Waiakea is growing quickly. It has only taken 3 years for it to grow by 5,000%

Waiakea water not only has the great products, but also a good marketing plan which helps connect customers to the company. After all, it is run with a passion for improved health. More people are discovering the difference between drinking pure water and drinking bottled city water.

The Kabbalah Centre’s Charitable Endeavors

Inspiring Stories, Kabbalah

Once an esoteric study for Orthodox Jewish scholars, the Kabbalah Centre teaches Kabbalistic wisdom instead, which is about turning one’s self into a better person and helping to make the world better as well. Naturally, charity is a major component of the Kabbalah Centre’s spiritual tools they offer to students.

Kabbalah teaches that the world’s pain and suffering will end when enough people understand the secret wisdom contained in the Zohar, the books on which Kabbalah is based. To facilitate this goal, volunteers of the Zohar Project print and distribute the book to individuals and organizations in all countries. The Zohar Project has donated books to hospitals, shelters, military personal and world leaders in hopes of bringing about world peace. Scholarships are also available for people who want to attend Kabbalah classes online or in person at one of the worldwide Kabbalah Centres.

Humanitarian aid through financial donations to recognized charities is one of the Kabbalah Centre’s charitable endeavors as well. After natural disasters, such as Hurricane Sandy, the Kabbalah Centre donated to the Red Cross to support their efforts to provide food and shelter to people in the affected communities. The Kabbalah Centre also donates to charities such as Habitat for Humanity and community-based organizations that are fighting poverty and gender inequality. Since the Kabbalah Centre was founded to teach Kabbalah to all, but primarily to women, the issue of gender equality is likely close to Karen Berg’s heart. It was she who convinced her husband, Kabbalah Centre founder Philip Berg, to allow women to study Kabbalah.

Members of the Kabbalah Centre community support the independent charity, Spirituality for Kids, which offers free online classes for children. Containing the universal principles of Kabbalah, the classes are designed to give children around the world a sense of self-worth and the ability to view challenges as opportunities.

As the Kabbalah Centre teaches sharing, humility and responsibility for poverty and wars in the world as the key principles of Kabbalah, members are encouraged to leave their comfort zone to help others. Members of Kabbalah Centres are encouraged to find ways to serve in their community, which helps them become better people.

Bruce Levenson and the Pursuit of Business Ethics

People

Bruce Levenson is an American businessman that has been able to enjoy great success within the sports entertainment industry.

With only thirty professional basketball teams within the Association, Levenson’s achievement of heading the Hawks is sometimes understated when some review his career history. However, the ownership of a multi-million dollar professional basketball team can sometimes lead one to pursue legal action for what is right, as Forbes billionaire Levenson found out in September of this year.

Under the direction of Levenson, the former ownership entity of the Atlanta Hawks filed a lawsuit against the New Hampshire Insurance Company in the Superior Court of Fulton County. The group led by Levenson, formerly named the Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC – AHBE, charged the insurance company with breach of contract in regards to the dealings of the settlement of claims made by one-time Hawk manager Danny Ferry.

Bruce Levenson is no novice when it comes to business ownership. Before he owned the Atlanta Hawks, he co-founded conglomerate United Communications Group. Since February of 2015, he served as a Director of TechTarget, Inc. Additionally, Levenson successfully guided the “I Have a Dream Foundation” as President of this Washington-based foundation.
