        Sends an event to all registered objects about a particular subject. Event is queued by EventManager, releasing the sender thread, and is later dispatched in a separate thread.
        Specified by:
        postNonBlockingEvent in interface EventManager
        Parameters:
        event - the event to be posted to the observers
