Egyptian Painter Arafaat to Donate Proceeds of a 1-Million Dollars Artwork Painting to the Chest Diseases Hospital Egypt

COVID-19 Solidarity, a 1-Million Dollars artwork for Corona patients

Egyptian painter Arafaat participates #ArtCanHelp cause on social media for Corona virus solidarity

sometimes looking into your inner-self might allow you to look into infinity”

— Arafaat

DUBAI, DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, March 31, 2020 / — Carrying the responsibility is a National duty in those urgent circumstances in which the people of the beloved Egypt must join hands to overcome the current crisis of the Coronavirus, which has claimed the lives of about 8,000 people in the world since the beginning of the discovery of the virus, as per WHO latest report yesterday.

The Egyptian painter Arafaat is currently presenting his distinguished works on his new own website and through various social media portals to highlight the depth of cultural diversity of the Egyptian people's mainstream classes and the emotional interaction that Arafaat experienced with all the dark conditions that have passed through Egypt during the last ten years.

The Egyptian artist, Arafaat, highlights the most important stages of his artistic life, which was reflected on his paints through his resistance to religious rule and the destructors of Egyptian culture, "The terrorist Muslim-Brotherhood", and also through the resistance of terrorist sponsors in the beloved land of Sinai claiming religious ownership of Egypt.

Within the framework of that National responsibility of the conditions in Egypt in resisting the spread of the Corona virus, the Egyptian artist, painter Arafaat, has decided to donate the proceeds of selling his painting, called COVID-19 Solidarity, for 1-Million Dollars to the Chest Diseases hospital in Cairo Egypt to renew medical devices and various equipment that will provide the patient with a world class medical service keeping up with the latest scientific methods in diagnosing and treating chest diseases.

It is worth noting that the website of the Egyptian artist, Arafaat, keeps pace with the latest technologies in the acquisition and ownership of paintings through secure Bitcoin and other digital Cryptocurrencies, and also through PayPal payment in Arabic, English, Japanese, and soon Korean and Chinese.

URL for the 1-Million Dollars Artwork (COVID-19 Solidarity)

Unique, Unparalleled and Utmost Egyptian Figurative Abstract & Impressionism.

" Arafaat ", 1952- establishes an elevated positioning that other Middle East artists can not match. Arafaat does not repeat the artwork twice because the motive of each painting is unique and aspiring from the deep roots of the Egyptian culture . Expressions are at its extreme whilst curating a paint or an installation to reflect a social status, a response to a status-quo, or an intimidation to a collective behaviour. Arafaat does not create multi-copies or commissioned artwork.

Certificate of Authenticity for the artwork is registered by the official notary office of Egypt and registered in the Ministry of Justice of Egypt. All artwork is signed by artist "Arafaat" himself with Acrylic on Canvas.

(Arafaat From Egypt) official online gallery enables Artwork Collectors to establish secure transactions to own Arafaat Artwork through secure payments, cryptocurrencies and bank transfer.

Arafaat is an Egyptian artist based in Cairo and Dubai.

AirPlay Direct is a premiere digital delivery / distribution company, brand and platform for engaging radio and airplay worldwide.

As a direct result of AirPlay Direct's outstanding service, we’re able to make a much greater worldwide radio impact than ever before. They’re the best!”

— Bruce Iglauer, President – Alligator Records

FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, March 31, 2020 / — During this currently volatile and disruptive professional environment, everyone is feeling the negative impacts surrounding the professional music community slow down; global radio is no exception. For various financial and logistical reasons, labels and Indie artists are being forced to slow down, or even quit submitting new music to radio.

You may have already been contacted by stations familiar with your music, or noticed a few press releases and notices from stations requesting and looking for new and various types of content, i.e.; music for airplay, videos links for placement on their station website, phone interviews, new station IDs, and Skype artist performances for their listeners.

These radio programmers and music lovers have and will continue to spin new, emerging and classic artists that are not signed to major labels, or are not allowed into the very strict “Top 40” mainstream.

These dedicated music aficionados are ultimately the tastemakers of the world. They can and will play the tracks that they love; why, because they can. They enjoy discovering new music, and vintage recordings that they then share with their fans, their listeners. Fans of DJs, quickly turn into new fans of the artists those DJs play.

Do you have a global radio strategy for 2020? If not, you may want to ask yourself… why not?

Instructions for accessing your AirPlay Direct download tracking reports are listed below.

1. Login to your APD Artist Account
2. Click on Tracking in the blue drop-down menu
3. Then click on the Profile Statistics link
4. Scroll to the bottom of the page to the Blue & Gold bars
5. The Gold bars shows the songs streams
6. The Blue bars show that a radio member has downloaded your song
7. Click on a Blue bar and a list of the radio stations will appear
8. Click on the Station Name (top link) and a bcc email form will appear where you can immediately reach out / correspond to that radio station member that has downloaded your song.

"All of us here at CMH value Robert and Lynda Weingartz's contributions to our industry with AirPlay Direct’s own innovations and the important service they provide record labels, artists and radio stations. ~ David Haerle, President – CMH Label Group

"As an independent artist it is imperative that I find economical and effective ways to market, promote, and distribute my music to radio. Through AirPlay Direct’s Eco-System I am able to introduce my music legacy to radio programmers and music professionals all over the globe. With the ability to track in real time who is downloading my songs I’ve begun building relationships with DJs and programmers that were never possible before.

In 2015 I launched a traditional radio promotion campaign for my independent release "Building a Human Being. After mailing hundreds of CDs and several months of follow-up calls and emails I thought the project's life had reached an end. When "No Second Coming" from that same CD was selected for AirPlay Direct's “Global Radio Showcase" Volume 5 "Americana Unlimited", I felt a renewed sense of hope. I was overjoyed when programmers at radio stations all over the world immediately began downloading literally every track from that 2015 CD.

The AirPlay Direct Eco-System levels the playing field for independent artists like myself. AirPlay Direct’s global radio download tracking reports make it possible for me to track which stations are downloading my music for airplay… in real-time. Via the AirPlay Direct tracking system I am also able to contact every radio programmer that downloads my music, providing me the opportunity to build real relationships with radio stations and DJs worldwide.

AirPlay Direct's "Global Radio Showcase" breathed new life into what I thought was an old CD and enabled me to build an invaluable community of support globally.

As a result, I’m reaching new listening audiences and developing potential new touring markets. AirPlay Direct is truly invaluable, not only in introducing new music to the world, but as a place where everything I’ve recorded can be discovered again and again." ~ Dana Cooper, Independent Artist

The vital support that AirPlay Direct has given to independent labels and artists in niche genres sets it apart from all other digital delivery services. In addition to helping get our new releases to radio, AirPlay Direct has helped bring attention to our catalog by featuring our classic albums in their digital newsletters to radio.

As a result of their outstanding service, we’re able to make a much greater worldwide radio impact than ever before. They’re the best!” ~ Bruce Iglauer, President – Alligator Records

NEW YORK, NY, USA, March 31, 2020 / — Global air pollution face mask leader, Debrief Me®, is pleased to announce the launch of its new reusable washable air pollution face mask. The top company says its limited edition Premium Everyday Face Mask is the first of its kind on the market today, with protective features utilizing specific materials and technology.

More information about the company’s new anti pollution face masks can be found at:

Debrief Me® reports a massive growth in production and sales in recent years, with its reusable face masks being used all over the world in a variety of industries and in response to the ever-changing environment. Matt E Silver, CEO of the popular American-owned brand, says an increased consumer awareness and specific events due to climate change have primarily speared the market explosion.

“People are becoming more aware of the air quality they breathe in. Wildfires and natural disasters are occurring more frequently, and industrial pollution is affecting both healthy and immunocompromised individuals. Not only that, but face masks are a requirement for workers in many industries to wear for personal protection purposes. First responders, construction and healthcare workers have all used our masks to help protect themselves from their work environment,” Silver says.

To meet growing demand, Debrief Me® has introduced a reusable, washable face mask to the market, effectively expanding its already popular product line. According to the company, its new Premium Everyday Face Mask serves to protect individuals of any age–from children to seniors– from toxins in the air, germs and allergens.

“We are the first to bring this particular mask to market. It uses melt-blown, non-woven polypropylene, the same component used in surgical N95 masks, as well as multi-layered moisture-treated fabric. Along with providing effective protection from toxic particles in the air, the washability and reusability of this mask allows users to wear it comfortably every day without worrying about being exposed. We have designed this mask using premium materials and technology to give the user peace of mind. The health of our customers is our top priority,” continues Silver.

Debrief Me®’s Premium Everyday Face Mask is a hypoallergenic, lightweight dust and air pollution mask consisting of two breathable cotton layers. Additionally, the company has a full line of washable, reusable masks using PM2.5 carbon filters, and these filters are the same material used in N95 masks. All Debrief Me® masks help prevent airborne particles from penetrating while maintaining breathability.

Completely washable, Debrief Me® says its new reusable mask will help consumers save money over time, provide superior protection and help contribute less to the planet’s environmental waste.

“As a company, we have been around for a long time, and we’ve seen the changes and events that have happened in our world. We’ve heard our customers, and we are pleased to bring this new mask to our line to promote healthier lives while breathing cleaner air,” Silver says.

COA Thanks CMS for Major Telehealth Expansion Allowing Community Providers to Continue Cancer Treatment During Pandemic

Significant Expansion of Telehealth Services Provides a Vital Lifeline to Patients with Cancer Whose Treatment Cannot Stop

We can't thank CMS and Administrator Verma enough for quickly moving these changes forward that will dramatically help oncology providers treat patients safely during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

— Ted Okon, executive director of COA

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, March 31, 2020 / — The Community Oncology Alliance (COA) applauds the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for new flexibilities to telehealth regulations and rules that will allow community oncology providers to dramatically expand safe cancer treatment during the COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) global pandemic. This major expansion of telehealth services and relaxation of regulations provides a huge boost to the ability of community practices to care for patients with cancer whose treatment cannot stop.

The new regulatory relief and rules from CMS are extensive and include the ability for providers to furnish 80 more services via telehealth and to bill for telehealth visits at the same rate as in-person visits. Additionally, CMS has made it clear that providers can now evaluate patients who have audio-only phone systems, an immense easing of burdens for those patients who might not have access to, or are not comfortable with, advanced technology.

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced a major reorganization and restructuring of cancer care in America. CMS’ rapid response to the crisis in recent weeks means that patients with cancer, many of whom are Medicare seniors with compromised immune systems that are most at risk of infection, can continue to receive cancer treatments while staying safe.

For example, thanks to telehealth, a community oncology practice in Oregon has been able to treat an 81-year-old patient with a new diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia. That person is being managed remotely, with labs drawn at the patient’s residence center. Weekly virtual telehealth meetings allow the physician to track how the patient is doing, ensuring they receive needed cancer care in a safe, cost-efficient setting.

A community oncology practice in North Texas also reports that telemedicine is allowing it to spare rural patients with long drives into urban areas that have seen COVID-19 outbreaks. This is not only reducing lengthy travel times but also greatly reduces their risk of exposure to the virus. Just this week, because of the new Medicare telehealth policies, the practice has been able to help a new patient with liver disease avoid a 133-mile drive as well as coordinate with other specialists for their cancer care.

Community oncology can't thank CMS and Administrator Seema Verma enough for quickly moving these changes forward that will dramatically help oncology providers diagnose and monitor their patients safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. CMS has demonstrated an amazing ability to cut through the red tape of Medicare bureaucracy and speed up these critically important changes. They are right on target in providing a veritable lifeline to Americans who are struggling with cancer in the midst of crisis.

Across the country, independent community oncology practices have risen to the challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic and continue to serve as cancer care providers for millions of patients. As the providers of cancer care to the majority of patients in America, now more than ever, it is crucial that community oncology practices stay open and active for patients as cancer and cancer care do not stop during times of national emergencies. The expansion of telehealth options and reduction of regulatory burdens are important steps that allow practices to do that while also keeping patients safe and healthy.


About the Community Oncology Alliance (COA): The majority of Americans battling cancer receive treatment in the community oncology setting. Keeping patients close to their homes, families, and support networks lessens the impact of this devastating disease. Community oncology practices do this while delivering high-quality, cutting-edge cancer care at a fraction of the cost of the hospital setting. The Community Oncology Alliance (COA) advocates for community oncology and smart public policy that ensures the community cancer care system remains healthy and able to provide all Americans with access to local, quality, affordable cancer care.
