WINSTON-SALEM, NC (Oct. 8, 2015) – At Blue Rhino® (, we can’t wait for tailgate season! We love to celebrate game day with friends and fantastic barbecue at our favorite team’s parking lot or in our own backyards.

The Blue Rhino family of brands includes both the number one brand in tank exchange, as well as an impressive line of innovative, premier barbecue accessories and outdoor lifestyle tools by Mr. Bar-B-Q®. Just in time for tailgating season, here are some useful tips for creating winning moments for your tailgate:

     1.  Prep food.

  • Use a burger press to make perfectly formed burgers that transport well.
  • Pre-assemble kabobs on skewers
  • Cut vegetables and fruits, and put into zipped plastic bags.
  • Season or marinate chicken wings, ribs or steaks the night before.
  1. Pack your gear.
  • Grill – Clean the grill so it’s ready to go. If it’s a propane grill, be sure to have a fresh propane tank on hand to ensure you don’t run out of gas during the tailgate. Blue Rhino tank exchange is conveniently available at more than 45,000 retail locations nationwide.
  • Grill accessories – Keep grilling accessories in a plastic bin that’s easy to pack, carry, and wash out. Be sure to include long-handled tongs and spatulas, plus a meat thermometer for food safety.
  • Food & drink – Remove food from the refrigerator and pack the cooler just before leaving the house. Food should be kept at 40 degrees fahrenheit. Pack drinks in a separate cooler to keep food from getting flattened by heavy cans and bottles.
  1. Prepare the grill. For additional flavor, use wood smoking chips or a cedar grilling planks. Or place moistened fresh herbs such as basil, sage, rosemary and thyme directly on the grill to release flavors.
  1. Light the fire. If you’re using a charcoal grill, use a chimney starter in lieu of lighter fluid. Within 15 minutes, you’ll be ready to grill – without the taste and smell of lighter fluid on the food.
  1. Stagger grilling so everything’s done at the same time. Start with food items that take the longest to grill.
  1. Use tongs to turn the food – but not too often. Browning meats gives them a delicious flavor and aroma. Don’t press, flatten or pierce the meat; flavorful juices will be lost and may cause flare-ups.
  2. Change up your menu. Mr. Pizza™ grilling accessories help tailgaters and backyard chefs create delicious, perfectly cooked “pies” on the grill. It’s one of today’s top grilling trends. Visit the website for tasty grilled pizza recipes.
  1. Serve everyone’s favorite campfire treat. The Hershey’s S’mores Grilling Tray makes up to four gooey s’more at a time – with less muss and fuss, and more fun.
  1. Show some extreme team spirit. After the grill has completely cooled down, use a Mr. Bar-B-Q collegiate team grill cover to protect your grill from the elements,

GYROMEGA Unveils The First Jet Powered Top/Gyroscope For Work, Play, Battle and Display

HOUSTON, Texas, October 7, 2015 — Never before has a top/gyroscope been powered by thrust from a JET MOTOR! This incredible power comes from an electric ducted fan (EDF) unit that is found in remote control jet aircraft that can fly at over 200 MPH. This power has now been harnessed and engineered into a compact package that you can run on your desk.

GYROMEGA ( has unveiled the VORTEX and their Kickstarter campaign. The VORTEX is a high performance, precision top/gyroscope powered by an electric ducted fan motor that you can run right on your desk. Whether you are battling it out in the ring with an opponent, creating dazzling light displays on the floor and walls, or spending time simply spinning away on your desktop, the GYROMEGA VORTEX provides endless hours of excitement and will have everyone talking about your extraordinary new top/gyroscope.


For more information visit:

The new VORTEX is a compact and immensely powerful package, turning at over 2,700 RPM, while maintaining an impressive stability duration of over 30 minutes on a single charge. To achieve this level of performance, the VORTEX utilizes an electric ducted fan unit, driven by a powerful 20,000 RPM, 6 volt high torque brushed motor turning a 6 blade 50mm high performance impeller.The VORTEX electric ducted fan drive system is combined with four 900mAh rechargeable NiMH batteries to deliver maximum power and achieve exceptional gyroscopic rotational speeds.

“In order to attain this degree of performance, we had to reimagine the way tops and gyroscopes function and create a completely new method of power,” said Jeff Helms, Founder and CEO of GYROMEGA.  “We developed our patent pending Vectored Thrust Propulsion System, which is the technology at the center of the action and allows you to experience the power, speed, and endurance that is engineered into our unique top/gyroscope design.”


This level of performance requires a strong design and advanced materials. The VORTEX is manufactured using polycarbonate, which is the material used to create bullet proof glass. Everybody likes customization, so GYROMEGA has made it simple to personalize the VORTEX to suit your personality. The unique design of the VORTEX allows you to interchange the intake manifold with different intake designs, creating an even more unique top/gyroscope.

One of the most unique features of the VORTEX is it mesmerizing lighting display. The VORTEX can put on an extreme light show using its 5mW Red Mini Laser and two 5mm RGB Fast-Blinking Color-Changing LEDs. The VORTEX is designed to stand up on either end, which means the intake can pull air in from above and blast it out as thrust toward the surface, or you can flip the VORTEX over and have it spin upside down, casting its laser light show onto your walls and ceiling!


GYROMEGA was started with the idea of revolutionizing the way tops and gyroscopes work. Born of a passion for precision engineering, powerful machines and elegant designs, our mission, utilizing over 30 years of engineering expertise, is the development of high-performance, precision tops and gyroscopes for work, play, battle and display.

SIGNAL MOUNTAIN, Tenn., Oct. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — It is one of Christendom’s most enduring and confounding mysteries: Who was the unnamed “other disciple, whom Jesus loved” (John 20:2), who knew the Jewish high priests Annas and Caiaphas (John 18:15), who sat next to Jesus at the Last Supper (John 13:23-25), and who presumably wrote the Gospel of John, the Johannine epistles and Revelation? Bible scholars, laymen and early church patriarchs have wrestled with the obscured identity of the Beloved Disciple and the writer of John’s Gospel for nearly two millennia.

Now, Tennessee Bible researcher Randall Carter Gray says he has solved the mystery, relying, in part, on a 1968 Coptic (Egyptian) biography of St. John Mark, The Beholder of God, which was only translated into English in 1997. Gray said the biography, written by the late Coptic Pope Shenouda III, reveals tantalizing clues on “a largely overlooked, very important albeit ‘hidden man,’ whose given Jewish name was John.”

“North African refugee John Mark, of Cyrene (Libya),” Gray said, “is the Beloved Disciple, who wrote all the works in the New Testament ascribed to people named John and Mark. He knew the high priests, because he worked with them as a priest and scribe. He was the only professionally trained writer in Jesus’ inner circle.”

In the biography, Shenouda claims that John Mark was 1) a native of Cyrene, 2) a North African refugee with a well-appointed home in Jerusalem, 3) a Jewish Levite priest and scribe, 4) the founder of the Coptic church and a theology school in Alexandria, Egypt, 5) one of the 70 apostles (evangelists) chosen by Jesus, 6) a cousin of Barnabas, 7) a secretary for the apostles Paul and Peter, and 8) John Mark was the host, along with his mother Mary, of the Last Supper. Gray said John Mark, a youth during Jesus’ ministry, leaned on Jesus like a kid brother would” (John 13:23-25).

“It is John Mark’s home that Peter immediately runs to after being miraculously released from prison,” Gray continued. “The home is effectively the first church, as it was a meeting place for Christians in Jerusalem, including Mary, the mother of Jesus and Jesus’ brothers (Acts 1:14; 12:12). John Mark’s mother Mary was a wealthy benefactor of Jesus, who was among the women in Jerusalem who cared for him.”

Acknowledging the description of John’s Gospel as a “Gnostic gospel,” Gray said, “John Mark wrote the fourth gospel with Gnostic elements, arguing that Jesus was both fully human and fully divine, because he confronted the Gnostics in Alexandria, where the heretical group arose. I’m very surprised that people trying to solve this mystery have been so far off and disregarded the Coptic perspective. Wikipedia doesn’t even mention John Mark’s name in its page on ‘the disciple whom Jesus loved.’ Everyone from Lazarus to Mary Magdalene is posited as a candidate. But neither knew the high priests. John Mark did.

“I can imagine John Mark in the high priest’s courtyard (John 18:15-17) arguing on Jesus’ behalf after Jesus’ arrest, perhaps risking his career and even his life, even as Peter was denying he even knew Jesus. I can imagine Jesus especially loving John Mark, because the youth was a refugee, and perhaps a man of color, and a sensitive thinker and writer.” Jesus foreknew how important John Mark would be to the church and the New Testament, Gray said. “He foreknew that ‘this man’ (John 21:21-23) would not taste death as the writer of Revelation (Gray does not believe John Mark was martyred, though that has traditionally been asserted).

Returning to John’s Gospel, Gray said, “It was often disregarded or condemned by some of the early Christians. John’s Gospel was actually banned for a time. But today, the Gospel of John may be the most-preferred gospel among Christians, notably evangelicals.”

As for John, the son of Zebedee, Gray said, “He has been the safe, but impossible choice for the Beloved Disciple for decades. Early church father Irenaeus wrote that ‘the apostle John’ was the person who wrote the fourth gospel, as it had somehow been told to him. But there were two apostles named John,” Gray said.

“We can’t assume anything about Zebedee’s John as a writer, because we know that he was uneducated, as Peter was” (Acts 4:3), and he appears nowhere in John’s Gospel except as an afterthought in the final chapter. Given the biography’s claim that John Mark was a priest and scribe, Gray said it is “fascinating to focus on one particular use of the name ‘John’ in Acts 4:6, which may demonstrate to us that John Mark was a member of the Sanhedrin.

“Alexander is also mentioned here along with John,” Gray said. “That is significant, I think, because one of Simon of Cyrene’s sons was named Alexander, with the other being Rufus. I believe there is much ethnic significance in the fact that John Mark, Simon, Alexander and Rufus were all from North Africa” (Mark 15:21). Simon of Cyrene was seized by Roman soldiers to assist Jesus in carrying his cross — which Gray believes may show that Jesus, perhaps like Simon, was “a man of color.”

Gray said the shortened name “John” is used twice further on in Acts (13:34; 15:36-40) to describe John Mark. Sometimes, the young priest’s Gentile/Roman name “Mark” or “Marcus” — which means, interestingly, “hammer” — is used; “so,” Gray said, “we can’t be absolutely sure that the name of John in Acts 4:6 refers to John Mark, but in that very book, Luke, who wrote Acts and the gospel bearing his name, calls John Mark only by his first, Jewish name, John, just as he does when he’s describing the rulers, elders, priests and scribes assembled to hear Peter and Zebedee’s John.”

Gray explained that students of the Bible “all come rather jaded to the subject of the Beloved Disciple, because we have accepted some things that we think are unknowable. But I believe Jesus was right when he said there would come a time when all hidden mysteries will be revealed (Mark 4:22). It is time for John Mark to get his just due.”

Gray, a retired newspaper reporter and editor, who served in Egypt and Ethiopia (Eritrea) as a Naval intelligence specialist, said that he is raising funds and making contacts in the effort to produce a documentary on John Mark as the Beloved Disciple, the working title of which is Beloved Disciple/African Priest. He’s seeking interested parties to be interviewed and help with production. He can be reached by email at or by phone (423) 619-9034.

Gray said in his search for the identity of the Beloved Disciple he has tried to put himself in “Jesus’ sandals” to surmise what kind of person Jesus would be most likely to love. “I can envision Jesus loving a North African refugee, who apparently suffered at the hands of robbers in his native Cyrene, precipitating his flight to Jerusalem with his mother Mary,” Gray said. “I can see Jesus having had special affection for a man who may have been the object of racial bias, if John Mark was a man of color, which we can only assume he was.”

Much additional material pertaining to John Mark appears on Gray’s website: TANATA: Things (often) Are Not As They Appear:

Deepnet S.R.O. Debuts New Smartphone on Indiegogo and Offering the Smartphone for Free


The Beast is the first smartphone of its kind featuring a dual slide, multi-color QWERTY keyboard.

Sept. 30, 2015 – Deepnet S.R.O. has debuted its one-of-a-kind smartphone on Indiegogo and is offering consumers a special discounted price before the phone hits mass retailers. Known as “The Beast,” this smartphone is a top-of-the-line design featuring a titanium body and a dual slide QWERTY keyboard.

“I was tired of waiting for somebody to make a smartphone that fit all my needs,” said Miroslav Kuco, founder and CEO of Deepnet S.R.O. “The typical onscreen smartphone keyboard just wasn’t doing it for me. I needed something high quality yet easy to use, and since nobody else was making the phone I wanted, I decided to create it myself.”

The Beast runs on Cyanogenmod Android and features a six-inch Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen. The dual slide keyboard slides out into a QWERTY keyboard as well as a media control center that allows users to change songs and pause and start a recording, all without activating the phone’s display. Users can also customize the backlit keyboard to glow the color of his or her choice. 

Deepnet S.R.O.’s Indiegogo campaign features four different price points and perks:

  • The $16 Early Backer perk will help Deepnet S.R.O. bring The Beast to life and go directly to manufacturing costs.
  • $166 gives you the ability to customize the backlit logo on the back of The Beast. This will be your only chance to do so.
  • Consumers can purchase The Beast for $666 before it hits mass retailers. That’s a 33 percent special discount price. This package also includes a free wireless charger.
  • Finally, for $66,666 one lucky Indiegogo backer will receive The Beast with its body made entirely of pure 24-karat gold.

If a major newspaper or online magazine will publish an article about the campaign as featured or something similar, Deepnet S.R.O. will send a free The Beast smartphone in case the campaign succeeds. All they want is a review of the phone and the publisher can keep it. All phones that will be sent for free will have a customized back logo of that particular publisher.

People interested in seeing The Beast and making a contribution to its Indiegogo campaign can do so at–6/.

Said Kuco, “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to invest in and get your hands on an incredible piece of technology before it even hits the masses.”
