24/7 Recovery support and resources for substance use available for all.
HOPE Sheds Light
MANASQUAN, N.J. – June 6, 2023 – PRLog — HOPE Sheds Light, Inc. (HSL), a family focused non-profit organization offering education, resources, support and HOPE to everyone and anyone affected by substance use disorder, has partnered with the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office in the Operation Helping Hands program (OHH). This collaboration aims to provide comprehensive support and resources to individuals struggling with substance abuse and their families in Monmouth County.
As part of this partnership, HSL operates a 24/7 Helpline, offering immediate assistance to those seeking treatment placement, resources, recovery coaching, and other vital support services. The Helpline serves as a lifeline for individuals in crisis, ensuring that help is available whenever it is needed.
One significant aspect of the collaboration between HSL and the Monmouth County OHH program is the provision of support to individuals who have received Narcan deployment from police and/or Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) in Monmouth County. HSL takes proactive steps to reach out to the victims and their family members, extending a helping hand and offering them support and resources. The organization recognizes the importance of providing compassionate assistance to those who have experienced an overdose, as well as their loved ones, as they navigate the challenging path towards recovery and healing.
“We are thrilled to join forces with the Monmouth County OHH program to strengthen our collective efforts in combating addiction within our community,” said Pamela Capaci, Executive Director of HSL. “By leveraging our 24/7 Helpline and utilizing the list of Narcan deployments, we can proactively engage with those who are most in need, providing them with the necessary support and guidance to reclaim their lives.”
Additionally, through the support of OHH, HSL brings recovery programming to the marginalized and often overlooked in the community. HSL hosts recovery support meetings twice a week at Soldier On, a residency for any veteran in need of housings; this includes but is not limited to homelessness, substance use disorder and mental illness. HSL is also involved in the Monmouth County Recovery Diversion Program (RDP), which started in Long Branch in 2021. RDP is a 12 week to 6-month diversion program that provides treatment support and resources to defendants and those in the court system with substance use and co-occurring disorders. During the winter months, HSL partners with other area service providers to bring breakfast to the Pilgrim Baptist Church in Red Bank in the mornings after a Code Blue alert has been issued. The Pilgrim Baptist Church serves as a Warming Center for homeless individuals on nights when the temperatures drop below freezing. Along with breakfast and fellowship, HSL offers resources and assistance in accessing treatment if needed.
HSL and the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office understand substance use disorder and recovery impact more than just the addict, it impacts the whole family. The two organizations have teamed up with NJ Reentry and the Boys and Girls Club to hold 5-week leadership trainings at the Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County.
Through this collaboration, HSL and the Monmouth County OHH program seek to reduce the stigma associated with addiction, promote awareness about available resources, and empower individuals and families to seek help without hesitation. By extending their support network, the organizations aim to create a safer, healthier, and more compassionate community for everyone affected by substance abuse.

The Director of Food and Environmental Hygiene has ordered a light refreshment restaurant in Mong Kok to suspend business for 21 days as the operator repeatedly breached the Food Business Regulation (FBR) by extending the business area illegally.
The premises, located at Shop A on the ground floor of Skyline Tower, 14-18 Tong Mi Road, Mong Kok, was ordered to suspend business from today (February 18) to March 10.
“Four convictions for the above-mentioned breach were recorded against the restaurant last November with a total fine of $17,000 levied by the court. Sixty demerit points were also registered against the licensee under the department’s demerit points system, leading to seven-day and 14-day licence suspensions running consecutively,” a spokesman for the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) said.
The spokesman reminded the licensees of food premises to comply with the FBR or their licences could be suspended or cancelled.
Licensed food premises are required to exhibit a sign, at a conspicuous place near the main entrance, indicating that the premises have been licensed. A list of licensed food premises is available on the FEHD’s website (www.fehd.gov.hk/english/licensing/index.html).
Albert Einstein is known for his “Theory of Relativity,” however, he also had many quotes and comments about “God.” He once stated, “The more I study science, the more I believe in God.”
Light of Man Utilizing Einstein Quotes & Guidance
SAG HARBOR, N.Y. – Feb. 3, 2023 – PRLog — Albert Einstein is still known as one of the most intelligent people in the history of the world and supposedly still only used a fraction of his brain’s capacity. There has been debate whether the estimate of using 10% of our brain’s capacity is accurate or not, but recent articles suggest that we use much more than 10%, but nobody has provided a new percentage.
Regardless of our use of our mental human potential, one thing is for certain, that human beings have a sense or need of a “higher power.” 90% of the world believes in some form of “Religion” or “higher power,” and yet we remain divided by “Religious Beliefs” and practices.
While Einstein was recognized for his scientific contributions, there are other comments and theories that have potentially been precognitions of future events. For instance his many comments on “God,” “Religion,” and Science. Einstein was not a fan of modern-day Religions or the idea of a personal God. While he is quoted as saying, “The more I study science, the more I believe in God,” he is also quoted as saying:
“I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. If something is in me which can be called religious then it is the unbounded admiration for the structure of the world so far as our science can reveal it.” (Albert Einstein, 1954)
In his soon to be released, internationally award-winning documentary film, “The Light of Man,” creator, Kevin L. McCrudden utilizes Einstein’s quotes to reinforce the concept that “Religion” and spiritual beliefs have begun to lose some of their power, especially over Millennials and GenXers and that science has actually already proven the existence of “God” or a “Higher Power.”
Utilizing interviews with His Holiness The Dalai Lama, world renowned physicist Dr. John Hagelin and Near Death Experience expert Dr. Raymond Moody, the documentary film analyzes and uncovers a profound scientific reality that redefines the origins of “God” or “Higher Power.” Through these interviews and some interpretations, this award-winning film reinforces, if not, proves one of Einstein’s theories or comments: “The religion of the future will be a cosmic religion. It should transcend personal God and avoid dogma and theology. Covering both the natural and the spiritual, it should be based on a religious sense arising from the experience of all things natural and spiritual as a meaningful unity…” (Albert Einstein)
In the documentary, McCrudden spends a significant amount of time with the Reverend Dr. B. L. Hofer, a Theologian, Reverend and Doctor of Psychology and Neuroscientist to discuss the history of religion and religious beliefs and the many similarities among those religions. The discussion is largely about the impact of “dogma” and the rules that “control followers” of each religion.
McCrudden stated, “I am very proud of the outcome of the documentary. In 67 minutes, we cover, history, religion, spirituality, science, physics and consciousness. And, in the end, I think Einstein would be proud of our outcome and conclusions. In fact, not only do we seem to prove the movement toward what Einstein saw as a “future religion,” but utilize, probably one of the most profound comments made by Einstein to cover the human experience and need for “religion” or a “higher power:”
“A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.” (Albert Einstein, 1954)
McCrudden concluded, “it’s hard to imagine Einstein’s brilliance. How, in one paragraph, he essentially sums up his theory of relativity and what has lead scientists to uncover the actual makeup of our universe, but to surmise the human condition’s need to believe in a “God” or “higher power,” as opposed to what has now been scientifically proven and what we have laid out in “The Light of Man.”
“This “divine journey” may lead to a new generation of “enlightenment.” Through divine guidance, I have asked what are seemingly, “the right questions” of “the right people” to come to a conclusion that I had no idea Einstein had projected. Bringing together experts that guide us through Religion and Spirituality, in order to take a closer look at science, physics and modern day “consciousness,” which is what Dr. Wayne Dyer, Dr. Deepak Chopra, and Dr. John Hagelin have been speaking about… and evidently, Albert Einstein, is beyond my wildest imagination!

The Beer Brewed for The Great Outdoors and the Famed Singer-Songwriter Come Together to Teach Wilderness Survival Skills In Busch Lights Super Bowl Spot
New York, NY – WEBWIRE – Monday, January 30, 2023
Busch Light and Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Sarah McLachlan are finding Shelter together for the beer brands new Super Bowl LVII advertisement. Following Busch Lights return to the big game in 2022 alongside saxophone legend Kenny G, this new campaign continues the beer brands long-running humorous streak. In the spot, Busch Lights rugged mascot Busch Guy begins teaching outdoor survival skills when Sarah McLachlan enters, and confusion ensues as the pair discuss the topic of shelter.
See the official spot here.
Our fans love nothing more than time in nature with an ice-cold Busch Light and thats why were once again bringing the great outdoors to the biggest game of the year, said Krystyn Stowe, Head of Marketing Busch Family & Natural Family at Anheuser-Busch. Busch Light fans will love our spin on Sarah McLachlans iconic commercial as they always appreciate a bit of humor that ultimately serves a good cause especially when it comes to great outdoors we both hold dear.
Set in the picturesque wilderness, the spot, titled Shelter, features Busch Guy giving fans the first lesson in a series of cold and smooth survival skills by teaching them how to find shelter. The spot cuts to Sarah McLachlan huddled in a tent alongside a curiously wolf-like dog, as the melody from her iconic song from 2007, Angel, begins to play in the background. Realizing the hilarious misunderstanding, Busch Guy cuts in with Busch Lights signature can crack and clarifies the type of shelter hes referring to and lets Sarah know that she is in fact cuddling up against a wolf.
Busch Light shares my love of animals and the wilderness so, while it seems unexpected, this spot is a really clever and good-hearted mix of my passions and their brand, said Sarah McLachlan. Last year, Kenny G revived the beer brands classic Head for the Mountains song and thats a tough act to follow, but I love that Busch Light is playing into nostalgia again with a new rendition of my Angel ASPCA commercial and I cant wait to see how people react!
Throughout the year, the brand will share more ads revealing the Busch Guys full Busch Guide, with lessons that focus on different areas of outdoors preparedness including signaling for help, facing a black bear, avoiding poison ivy and more.
As Sarah McLachlan is an avid supporter of finding homes for the animals we love and Busch Light has long helped organizations that protect and preserve the habitats of animals in the great outdoors, Busch Light will donate $25,000 to its partner and fellow champion of nature, One Tree Planted. With the help of donations like these, One Tree Planted can continue to restore forests, create habitats for biodiversity and make a positive social impact around the world.
Additionally, timed to Super Bowl LVII, Busch Light is bringing back its massive social sweepstakes, The Mountain of Busch. Similarly to last year, fans can enter to win a mountains worth of Busch Light (along with other prizes) from January 31 until the end of the Super Bowl by replying to Busch Lights social posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with #MountainOfBusch #Sweepstakes.
