Sublime Galleria to Hold An Exclusive Exhibition of Paintings by Children from Christel House

The Collection will feature works by Children from Kindergarten to Grade 12, between 25th September and 25th October 2014.

Bangalore, India, September 25, 2014 — In continuation with their philanthropic endeavors to help communities through art, Sublime Galleria will hold an exclusive exhibition of paintings by the Children of Christel House, India. The collection will go LIVE on 25th September and continue till 25th October 2014, and would feature the works of kids from Kindergarten to Grade 12.

The children at Christel House, India belong to weaker sections of society and the medium of art has proved to be an effective way for them to express themselves creatively. Their Art Program is integral in shaping their personalities and is often seen to be therapeutic for them.

According to Raju Shahani, Managing Director, Christel House India, “At Christel House, we believe that our students can reach their highest potential with a cultivated capacity for imagination. We strive to channelize the creativity in every child by encouraging free expression through various art forms. Our Art Program is integral to our approach in shaping personalities of these impoverished children and helping them express themselves clearly and convincingly. We have found that this focus on art has at times been therapuetic for children going through any learning disability or emotional distress due to their abused background. We are grateful to Sublime Galleria for their offer space and resources to promote art talent of the Christel House children.”

Eposeidon Introduces New Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reel

Heavy duty high-tech conventional reel with unique features for offshore fishing is now available only through Eposeidon for the US and Canadian markets.

Hempstead, Long Island, NY (September 25, 2014) — Eposeidon, Inc., the North American distributor of Ecooda fishing reels, has introduced the Ecooda Ocean Master Conventional Reel.

A unique feature of the Ecooda Ocean Master (EOM) is its unique patented double level-wind support shafts that gives outstanding stability and unwavering pressure on retrieve. Ecooda Ocean Masters also have a patented double support bearing system on its stainless steel main shaft that adds superior strength and longevity to the reels.

Available in left and right handed models, all Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reels feature carbon fiber drags for smooth operation and performance needed to fight big game fish. EOM 30’s have 33 lbs. (15 kg.) of drag and EOM 50’s produce 44 lbs. (20 kg.) of drag. It is an exceptional amount of drag power for reels in that class size. Ocean Masters have 7 shielded stainless steel ball bearings (patented double bearing support on the main shaft), precision machined brass gears and stainless steel components for maximum strength and durability, 6.2:1 gear ratios, ceramic line-guide inserts, and a reel-foot locking plate to keep the reel securely clamped to the rod shaft while battling big fish. Its frame is constructed from high-modulus graphite for a higher stiffness to weight ratio.

“Performance combined with endurance is the key,” says Eposeidon’s CEO Tate Cui. “The available drag pressure is more than double the available drag on other reels in that class. In testing this spring it boated a 90 pound fish off the coast of Japan without effort. Everything in the reel is stainless steel, brass, or graphite; all of which withstand the effects of seawater. It’s built for survival.”

“The Ecooda Ocean Master reels put us squarely in the conventional reel arena for big game fish. You can’t beat that many features and the benefits for the price,” says Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon. “We’ve had exceptional success with other Ecooda models based on their price, quality, and performance. We predict the same level of success with the Ocean Master and for the new smaller round baitcaster model the Ecooda Tiro Caster.”

Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reel‘s retail pricing begins in the $120 range. Eposeidon offers free shipping on orders over $20.
