Published

on

PROGRAM 15 continues to push the game of baseball and its amateur athletes into new territories through innovation by partnering with ProPlayAI as the Official Biomechanics Player Development Partner for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series.

ProPlayAI is a leading human motion intelligence company that brings lab-grade biomechanics data and insights to users’ fingertips through proprietary computer vision software that captures data directly from a smartphone.

“We used to need a full biomechanics lab, or complex multi-camera systems to deliver these types of reports in the past, but with PitchAI – one camera is all we need to deliver an accurate biomechanics assessment to identify deficiencies, strengths, and areas for development in these top prospects.” says ProPlayAI’s Chief Scientist, Dr. Michael Sonne “Working with PROGRAM15 puts the technology in the hands of some of the top prospects, and we’re excited to be a part of their development process- both in practice, bullpens, and games.”

With the new partnership, ProPlayAI Biomechanical analysis feedback will be captured in real-time and incorporated into PROGRAM 15’s player evaluation model for select New Balance Future Stars Series events, including:

NBFSS Regional Combines
NBFSS Underclass Combine
NBFSS National and World Combines
NBFSS Underclass Elite
NBFSS Caribbean Classic
NBFSS Main Event at Fenway Park

PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Jeremy Booth, says, “We’re excited to take this step with ProPlayerAI toward better analysis designed to be used for player growth. It’s cutting edge technology, and this relationship continues our mission to wade through the noise and ineffectiveness of the market at large and focus on what truly has impact and longevity.”

Players attending New Balance Future Stars Series select events will have ProPlayAI Biomechanical analysis feedback included in their P15 Scouting Reports as well as their player profiles on PROGRAM 15’s proprietary Scouting Database, which is available to college recruiting staff and pro scouts.

PROGRAM 15 Scouting Reports are just one of the reasons Future Stars Series Scouting and Evaluation events have built a reputation as the most comprehensive amateur baseball player identification and development experiences available. Backed by decades of Pro Baseball experience, PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts, and coaches provide in-depth and credible evaluations that are trusted by Major League scouts and college coaches across the country.

Amelia Island Microgreens Teen Connor Hiebel Awarded FedEx Entrepreneur Fund Grant For Empowering People

Amelia Island Microgreens Teen Connor Hiebel Awarded FedEx Entrepreneur Fund Grant For Empowering People

Published on December 7, 2022

Amelia Island Microgreens was selected as one of 30 entrepreneurs to receive a $10,000 grant through the 2022 FedEx® Entrepreneur Fund, presented by FedEx and HelloAlice.com in collaboration with GenHQ.

“We believe everyone should have access to clean, nutrient-rich, and economical food,” says teen entrepreneur, Connor Hiebel.

Amelia Island Microgreens was selected as one of 30 entrepreneurs to receive a $10,000 grant through the 2022 FedEx® Entrepreneur Fund, presented by FedEx and HelloAlice.com in collaboration with GenHQ.

The program provides grants to small businesses owned by military-connected entrepreneurs or small business owners with disabilities.

“Covid made 2020 a challenging year, changing how we look at many things, said Christine Heibel, Connor Heibel’s business partner, and mother.

“For many of us, food security became an issue,” said Christina Hiebel.

“To meet this and his own personal health challenges, Connor started Amelia Island Microgreens and developed a selection of ‘Ready, Set, Grow!’ kits for people to grow microgreens for themselves and their pets.”

Connor and his business partner/mother Christine are currently on a media tour educating the public about microgreens. Listen to their recent appearance on Optimal Health Radio with Dr. Tami Patzer.

Amelia Island Microgreens is a mother/son-owned business born out of necessity to address Connor’s complex health challenges.

“Connor was born as a failure-to-thrive child, yet has created a thriving life (although challenging) through good nutritional and mental practices,” explained Christine.

Due to his health, Connor has not been able to attend public school for more than 50% of his school years. He has fluctuated between being medical homebound and homeschooled to fulfill his educational requirements.

“Growing a business has been an amazing educational experience with real-world lessons,” he said.

Having grown microgreens for more than a decade, Connor considers microgreens part of his medicine.

“Microgreens are the most nutritious stage in the life-cycle of a plant, delivering up to 40% more nutritional density than the mature plant,” said Connor.

“Microgreens are eaten live, not weeks or months after they have been harvested, providing enzymes not present in ‘dead’ food.”

Connor has always had an entrepreneurial spirit. At age four he sold a rock to a man (with lessons of supply and demand from his embarrassed mother). He purchased his first lizard at age 6 with money he made from making and selling soy candles.

At the peak of Covid, people around the world all experienced ‘less than desirable’ produce. To help people gain food security, Connor decided to take action to educate and empower people to grow nutrient-rich microgreens. In less than two years, Amelia Island Microgreens has a distribution of more than 4,000 ‘Ready, Set, Grow!’ trays in circulation.

The FedEx Fund will help Amelia Island Microgreens remove single-use plastic from their kits, aligning with their mission to empower people to achieve a healthier lifestyle. The Fund had more than 12,500 applicants. Amelia Island Microgreens was one of 30 applicants chosen.

“We believe every person deserves the opportunity to grow their own food, no matter their physical capabilities, age, or economical situation,” said Connor.

“We believe every family deserves food they can trust. We believe every child deserves to have the confidence to grow their own food and understand food does not come from a store.”

Amelia Island Microgreens kits are available online and local Florida retail stores: Coastal Cottage, Nassau Health Foods, and Redbones Dog Bakery. See Amelia Island Microgreens on Facebook, too.

Heidi Sharman announces upcoming book, “Intuitive Goddess”

Heidi Sharman announces upcoming book, “Intuitive Goddess”

Published on December 7, 2022

Heidi Sharman, owner of Heidi Sharman Holistic Health & Wellness releases book to help women to manifest great health and harness their feminine energy to build their dream lives.

Intuitive Goddess is the 2nd in the Goddess series by The London Publishing House. It features inspirational women who are sharing their real-life stories of how they listened to their call into greatness and wrote their own realities; manifesting their love, health and success, and harnessing their feminine power to build lives far beyond their dreams. 

Having experienced the loss of her health, mobility and independence due to a devastating injury,  Heidi found a way of healing and recovering physically and emotionally and now she helps other women take charge of their health, lose weight, restore balance,  and reconnect with their unique identities.

In 2017, Heidi was bouldering when she fell and broke her heel requiring surgery, a lengthy recovery and rehabilitation. Previous to this, when not working as a Card Brand Specialist she was incredibly active, spending most of her time running, climbing, taking part in outdoor activities and coordinating the busy lives of her 2 children. 

Suddenly unable to walk, do physical activities or manage her household,  she struggled, not only physically, but emotionally and the Consequences of her injury extended beyond the home when she missed a critical transition time at work, preventing her from taking on a new role within the organization. 

When damage from the injury persisted, Heidi was offered a 2nd operation that would help with the immense pain she was suffering from but the downside was that she would further lose mobility. She turned down the operation and switched her focus to her own nutrition. 

She made changes that included cutting gluten, sugar and dairy and within one month had stopped taking pain medication and she could walk, do outdoor activities and be active with her family once again. Today, Heidi has resumed hiking, enjoys long walks at the beach and has even gone back to climbing,

Heidi says:  “Our bodies, are a reflection of our physical and emotional well-being.  

Taking the time to listen and honor what they are asking for, creates the space for healing that you didn’t realize was possible.”

Intuitive Goddess will be released on 11th January 2023 and will be available on Amazon KDP and the Lulu bookstore.
