Mark Russo, CEO of Treasure Investments Corporation, signed recently an agreement with American Design LTD in Aurora, Colorado to display TIC’s newest bronze sculptures from the World famous Lorenzo Ghiglieri and son Laran Ghiglieri into nine of its premier fine art galleries. The galleries are located in Aspen, Vail, Beavercreek, Santa Fe, New Mexico and in the Denver area. American Design LTD was founded by Paul Zueger, one of the nation’s most successful and prestigious gallery owners.

Just a few of the images being placed in the galleries for sale include Lorenzo Ghiglieri’s sculpture entitled “The American Patriot” depicting a bald eagle perched atop Article One of the U.S. Constitution clutching 13 arrows in its talons. Lorenzo Ghiglieri has presented his works to President Ronald Reagan, his holiness Pope John Paul II, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Mikhail Gorbachev and many other notable world leaders, celebrities and successful entrepreneurs. Also being displayed at Zueger Galleries is Laran Ghiglieri’s new “Stage Coach Gold,” a historically accurate depiction of an 1860s concord “Overland” stagecoach with a six-horse team. As one of the most intricate bronze castings created, this piece took over eight months to design using over 3,000 parts in its original design and creation. The finished bronze casting includes a lockbox on top of the stagecoach carriage full of pure silver and solid gold bars.

Mark Russo, CEO of Treasure Investments Corp, is preparing the company for an anticipated Initial Public Offering (IPO) in 2018. The fine art company provides high-end limited-edition bronze sculptures for charity fundraising events as well as creating and distributing its world-class images to fine art galleries in the United States. The subject matter of these pieces ranges from wildlife themes to historical, cultural, western, and biblical.

Treasure Investments Corporation has amassed a master mold collection of more than 700 original works of art including many works from world-famous artists, Lorenzo Ghiglieri and Laran Ghiglieri, as well as master molds that originated from the Vatican and the Villa Borghese Museum in Rome. Bernini and Michelangelo are also among the artists that are included in the mold collection.

The company has a strong focus on philanthropy. One of their main business divisions is their charity auction program, which provides fine art pieces for fundraising events and auctions. The unique business model sets the company apart from the rest. Russo created this innovative model in 1998 by placing valuable bronze castings into gala charity fundraising events. The first piece sold for $63,000. This model has subsequently created tens of millions of dollars in revenue for the nonprofits.

“Treasure Investments Corp is now positioned to be the sole provider of high-end bronze sculptures for nonprofit actions throughout the United States,” says Russo. “With more than 600,000 live charity auctions per year, and growing daily, the ability for Treasure Investments Corp to scale its auction model is beyond exciting for just one of its profit centers.”

Treasure Investments Corporation has had a third party independently appraise its mold collection at more than $900 million. This asset of master molds took more than 35 years to create and is truly irreplaceable. Currently, Treasure Investments Corp has no debt and has successfully completed its first round of equity finance of $1 million.

Denver International Airport Is Going Hippy

Denver International Airport Is Going Hippy

DENVER, Feb. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Be Hippy, a Colorado based lifestyle brand, takes the next leap in their adventure with a new kiosk at Denver International Airport (DIA). The kiosk will be located in B Concourse and will carry a wide range of Be Hippy products and apparel. This is an important milestone for the growing lifestyle company.

For Bart O’Brien and Leigh Pearson, co-founders of Be Hippy, it all started with a hat and their love for Colorado. They had an idea, not for a brand, but for a lifestyle, a mantra: Be Hippy. “We look at the world a little differently. Life is short, so why not do what makes you happy?” says O’Brien. The mantra, a play on “Be Happy”, fit their love for music festivals, the outdoors and wanting to make a positive impact in the world. The first product under the Be Hippy brand was a trucker hat with a gray and white Be Hippy mountain logo, and a Colorado flag on the side.

“We thought it was cute, and we shared it with friends and wore it to several music festivals. We had no idea that it would catch on the way it did,” says Pearson.

The Be Hippy hat and mantra spread through friends and Facebook, quickly gaining a following at music festivals in Colorado and across the country. When asked who the Be Hippy customer is, O’Brien answered, “We want people looking to do what makes them happy and makes them want to continue to live life to the fullest. They can love music festivals like us, or extreme sports, paddle boarding, hiking, anything. Be Hippy products reflect a state of mind and not any one particular activity. Since launching the brand, Pearson and O’Brien travelled to over 150 festivals across the country, introducing the Be Hippy lifestyle at each location.

The new kiosk will open a huge opportunity to reach a large collection of potential new customers, with Denver International Airport expecting to see more than 60 million travelers in 2018.

“The deal to put a kiosk in DIA has been in the works for nearly two years, but the timing couldn’t be better for Be Hippy,” said O’Brien. As a member of 1% For The Planet, Be Hippy donates 1% of all gross sales to improve the planet through smart giving as a way to do their part. “The goal has always been to make a positive impact with what we do. I look up to people like John Muir and Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia, and aspire to make a difference the way they have,” said O’Brien.

Be Hippy is hoping the new kiosk will make a world of difference, to more than just their brand. Their goal is to become much more than a clothing brand, and empower people to find a lifestyle of happiness and helping the planet.

About Be Hippy: Be Hippy is a grassroots lifestyle brand with a passion for music, the outdoors, traveling, fashion and living life to the fullest. All Be Hippy goods are designed in Colorado. Be Hippy donates 1% of all gross sales to 1% For The Planet. For more information visit

A few tips for increased security measures at your Aurora Colorado home

A few tips for increased security measures at your Aurora Colorado home

Locksmith Aurora Colorado Home Security - Alphaspirit -123RFCredit: Alphaspirit\123RF

Burglar break-ins can be prevented by implementing certain precautionary routines in our daily life. It is important to know that skilled burglars can quickly make a copy of any available key. Therefore, strangers should be denied any access to the keys to the front door, and be careful not to give them any opportunity to see them or photograph them using smartphones or any other camera. Similarly, the key must be kept separate from the smart card, which is designed to prevent unauthorized duplication. Then, keep the card in a place that is not accessible to strangers.

If you are installing advanced security technology around residential premises, you need to calculate that such measures will not confuse the residents, and especially that it does not in any way effect their privacy. This includes surveillance alarms and additional smart home gadgets under the category of security that are specifically meant to prevent intruders. For instance, if the alarm system is on at night, residents should know in which part of their home they will probably be during the night, so they would not be confused if it suddenly rings.

Additionally, implemented security measures should be checked on a regular basis to make sure they are working properly. This could easily be done yourself, but if something is out of order then it is important to immediately call a professional to do the necessary repairs. Make sure you are at home when someone comes to repair any security device and it is best if someone else is accompanying them so they are not wandering around the house without supervision.

Another crucial thing is to make sure there are no plants that are growing in a way that might hinder the function of the security system or cause false alarm. Also, anything that might assist burglars to climb up to the house, like a ladder, or something that can help reach a porch or a window, should of course be out of reach.

Last but not least, before going to sleep, make sure no car keys or any valuable objects that can be seen from the outside of the house, are left on a table or where they can be reached and photographed. And do not forget to keep the alarm system on.

Denver Aurora: Exercise at high altitude

Denver Aurora: Exercise at high altitude

At higher altitude places such as Denver, less oxygen reaches the body, making it harder to breathe. Also, the muscles get worn out faster than usual. Whenever people come to visit, they always ask why it’s harder to catch your breath when you go running the first couple of weeks. Exercising at high altitudes creates certain changes in our body. Those changes could even cause a certain strain on our body.

Any physical activity that is performed at more than 5000 feet, is limited by the high altitude. This is caused by the decline in the barometric pressure — the higher up you go, the less oxygen pressure you have. It is important to keep in mind that it takes a certain amount of time to get accustomed to higher conditions since this situation creates a lack of supply of oxygen from being transported and delivered from the lungs to other parts of the body. So, the time for oxygen to be absorbed by the blood and exhaled will feel shorter. When we try to inhale more air, the frequency and the depth of breathing will increase. Unlike being at sea level, our heart rate is faster in high altitudes no matter if we are resting or exercising. To deal with this strain on our body, the body starts to produce more red blood cells and increase the level of hemoglobin to carry the oxygen to the blood. The increased hemoglobin concentration speeds up the heart rate and helps it to function normally.

Air in higher places

Additionally, the air in higher places is much more condensed than at sea level. Not only does the temperature decrease the higher you climb, it also gets dryer. The dry air could cause a loss of liquids and dehydration. Therefore, it is important to drink plenty of water before and during those outdoor activities at high altitude, especially if you come from lower ground. It is important to note that for each person it takes a different period of time to get used to such conditions and it is definitely an individual issue. Some research shows that people who are born and live permanently at high altitudes, have this natural acclimation that allows for their body to function normally just as people who live at sea level.

But generally, for people who are used to living at sea level, that kind of change in altitude could cause a certain deterioration in physical performance. Those changes in the body can initially affect a person’s willpower to exercise because all physical activities at high altitude seem much harder to perform than they usually are. For the average population, the body can perform at half of its ability than at sea level.

Diversity at Aurora School – educational tools for success

Diversity at Aurora School – educational tools for success

Success of culturally diverse students is affected by many school factors, such as school’s atmosphere and general attitude toward diversity. Some teachers are up for encouraging community involvement in and outside school programs, and respond those issues through relevant and engaging curriculum.

One of the main factors of integration at school is the personal relationship between teachers and students. Once a student feels he is welcome to express his opinions, and to be accepted for who he is, it is become easier for him to open up, to make new friendships and encourages him to do homework and participate in class activities offered by the teacher. Teachers, on their side, should know how to appreciate similarities and differences among the different groups they are educating during the day.

It is sure a challenging role to possess

Teachers need to pay attention to so many details, and succeed on diagnosing what consider to be success for one student, and what could be valueless to another. It is like being a mother to children with completely different backgrounds, behaving to each one of them with the respect they expect to receive, even culturally wise, and moreover, being able to create a mutual acceptance and understanding between the children themselves.

Another important factor is to meet the diverse needs. At many schools, diversity is a highly abstract concept. Meeting diverse needs, education wise, is not something that can be easily communicated or translated into action. But without a clear sense of where the school is headed and why, teachers cannot put in place executable plans.

Therefore, by being clear about what the strategy is, teachers keep everyone headed in the same direction. Whether it is to honor students’ customs and rituals, expressing interest in discovering what their lives are like, outside school, teachers’ resource and action planning become more effective.

Some fear that the school’s education level might deteriorate

Additionally, using a rigorous framework in order to speak a common language, could also be used to keep class discipline. Differentiate instructions in order to meet individual student needs, must be conducted with a rigorous framework. Many parents support the idea of integration and consider it to be tremendously important.

Yet, on the other hand, some fear that the school’s education level might deteriorate due to investment of resources. Also, being together in a mutual framework, such as school, making students obtain behaviors that fit to the setting, just like in the outside world, and therefore should be adapted.
