With 56th Anniversary Here, Dianetics Speeds Toward 22 Million in Sales



For weeks, the most basic approach to parenting using Dianetics principles has been making headline news worldwide--and the result is a surge of public demand for L. Ron Hubbard's bestseller, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health, and its practical answers to achieving success and happiness in life.



Los Angeles, Ca (PRWEB) May 10, 2006



For weeks, the most basic approach to parenting using Dianetics principles has been making headline news worldwide--and the result is a surge of public demand for L. Ron Hubbard's bestseller, Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health (www. dianetics. org), and its practical answers to achieving success and happiness in life.



With 56 years of relief from stress and trauma--and recent widespread accounts of mothers testifying to the success of the Dianetics-based silent birth procedure (www. SilentBirth. org) -- it is no mystery why Dianetics has once again sparked coast-to-coast interest in the workings of the mind and its real potential.



Since first appearing on the New York Times bestseller list soon after its May 9, 1950 release, Dianetics has repeated the feat another 98 times-an unmatched phenomenon in publishing history. Now translated in 55 languages, it has sold well over 21 million copies. In it, Mr. Hubbard isolated the single source of stress, worry, self-doubt and psychosomatic illness-the reactive mind, that portion of the mind that works on a totally stimulus-response basis, and not under the volitional control of the individual.



For Michelle Seward, getting a copy of Dianetics from her mother opened the doors to recovery after a traumatic auto accident that left her stressed to such a point she could barely get into a car. The Santa Clarita, California mother went on to take full control of her life, becoming a successful financial analyst and giving birth to a son using the principles in Dianetics. "From the start, I knew that the book held more truth than anything I had ever read," said Michelle. "I suddenly began to see what was going on with me and to understand how my mind worked.



"Because of what I've learned in Dianetics, my life is happy and content, and I can live it without getting stressed out. It goes far beyond success as a businesswoman-I am the president of a foundation for human rights and tolerance, the executive producer of a human rights album, and the president of a parents organization at my son's school," she said.



For native Tennessean Morgan Rogers, now a chiropractor in Santa Ana, California, L. Ron Hubbard's advice in the foreword in Dianetics could not ring truer. "You are beginning an adventure," wrote Mr. Hubbard. "Treat it as an adventure. And may you never be the same again."



Dr. Rogers' life-changing ordeal began last year, as he lay, immobilized, suffering from unexpected secondary effects of cancer treatment and the accompanying frustration of being unable to work. "As a professional writer, speaker and caregiver, I could not work with my hands and help others," he said. "Nothing could be more demoralizing. So, when I put Dianetics to use, it helped turn my life around--completely and for good."



Within a few weeks of starting to use Dianetics techniques, what had seemed a desperate situation was becoming a thing of the past, and soon he was on his feet and able to function once again. Now back to work in his practice, Dr. Rogers says he is "happier and healthier than I've ever been."



"Today, all of that lost hope is recovered," he said. "With the help of Dianetics, I've been able to get rid of parts of the reactive mind that had me pinned down in more ways than I had realized."



There are thousands of stories like these.



For information on Dianetics books and services--including testimonials from those who have used Dianetics technology to improve their own and others' lives--call (323) 960-3500.

ElegantPlus. com: Expert Guides to Plus Size Clothing, Shopping and Lifestyle Turns Four



ElegantPlus. com, an Internet guide to plus size clothing, shopping and lifestyle celebrates its growth and fourth anniversary. The grass roots service philosophy has expanded offerings from simple shopping listings for the under-served size 14 and larger market to include information, news and articles celebrating full figured fashion and in support of self esteem, body image, career and empowerment.



Adams, MA (PRWEB) June 26, 2006



ElegantPlus. com, an Internet guide to plus size clothing, shopping and lifestyle celebrates its growth and fourth anniversary. The grass roots service philosophy has expanded offerings from simple shopping listings for the under-served size 14 and larger market to include information, news and articles celebrating full figured fashion and in support of self esteem, body image, career and empowerment. Website: http://www. ElegantPlus. com (http://www. ElegantPlus. com)



ElegantPlus. com grew out of the humble origins of a small eBay store called "Elegantly Yours Plus Boutique" (now closed) that specialized in hand picked plus size clothes. It quickly became apparent that there was a huge demand for quality, full-figured apparel that was not being met. The founder, a curvy art historian and archaeologist specializing in jewelry, textiles, social theory and role of fashion in image and non-verbal communication, discovered that her academic skills were actually in high demand with modern, mainstream applications. As letters and pleas came pouring in from satisfied customers raving about her fashion sense, wondering where she found her "hand-picked" plus sized items, and asking if there was a website, the idea of ElegantPlus. com began to take shape. Switching from direct vending to a listing and information service allowed a more scalable model and in June 2002 the current plus size fashion concept website was launched.



In the course of the past four years this grass roots service philosophy has continued to shape the website. ElegantPlus. com has grown to include extensive information in support of the plus size community, adding features and content in direct response to visitor demands and letters. During the course of the last year ElegantPlus. com received over 1.5 million unique visitors and over 95,000 page views per week. Readers are predominantly well educated women who range in age from 18 to 55 with active lifestyles and who wear sizes 12-34w. They come from all ethnic backgrounds and live in the United States (an increasing percentage of our readership is also from Canada and other English speaking countries). Continued growth is expected since the average American woman wears a size 14 or larger, but traditional brick and mortars continue to under-serve this market.



Plus Size Clothing



Today, ElegantPlus. com provides extensive plus size clothing Internet listings which are carefully reviewed. The editors conduct random mystery shopper "test purchases" in order to research such aspects as customer service, quality and style to complement our understanding of an apparel company's web presence. The company is interested in the entire customer experience and only work with companies that have apparel directly available through secure Internet shopping.



Price points range from value priced apparel to high end designer, and even couture fashion. "Editor's Pick" plus size fashions are drawn from our partnership base and featured in individual product listings. We have a policy of inclusion and make every effort to include stylish "picks" for super size women in sizes above 26W on most pages. Written reviews and style guides can feature fashion events, specific product types, and individual designers and retailers. Helpful fit guides are included to help shoppers better understand their bodies, clothing cuts and measuring systems.



Curvy News and Information



The ElegantPlus. com staff writes original articles of interest to our visitors addressing lifestyle, fashion and current events. Regular contributors during the last year include full figured wedding author Chamein Canton; inspirational columnist Reverend ReBecca Ames Sala; a plus fashion photographer and size acceptance activist in Los Angeles, Sita Mae Edwards; Monica Rasso, a curvy Mom and professional plus size model; and Lisa Klobucar who tackles self esteem issues from an "every woman's" perspective. Joining the regular team during the summer of 2006 is body image expert and confidence coach, Dr. Robyn Silverman, whose groundbreaking research at Tufts University demonstrates that not all plus-size young women view themselves similarly in terms of body image.



Events of interest to the plus size community are announced through our mailing lists and on the Event Calendar, providing a centralized information distribution service for BBW social, fashion, travel and activism events across the United States.



Some of the events covered by ElegantPlus. com authors have included the 2005 NAAFA Convention, plus size fashion shows and plus size dance concerts.



Media attitudes and coverage of obesity, plus size fashion, health, curvy celebrities, size positive events and other issues of interest to the plus community are monitored through our free daily news clipping service.



Fashion Industry Plus Size Job Resources



As part of our empowerment mission, a free business to business fashion job resource board is moderated by ElegantPlus. com. Run through Yahoo! Groups, it is open to all - partners and non-partners alike. Modeling and acting jobs must accept applicants size 12 or larger for women or men's big and tall. All other postings must come from companies that are involved in the entertainment, fashion and beauty industries and, preferably, produce apparel for larger sizes or support curves in some way. Accepted postings include plus modeling and acting jobs, stylists, make-up artists, corporate retail, fashion retail, fashion design, advertising and graphic design agencies with fashion and beauty accounts, entertainment industry, and related business.



Website resources include such things as reputable plus modeling agency listings, plus friendly fashion photographers and introductory discussions of job descriptions within the industry. Guest authors have included such plus size fashion notables as Bette Tilch, a fashion stylist working in Los Angeles, and plus size clothing designer, Yuliya Zeltser, of the San Francisco based full figured apparel company Igigi.



Further development of a plus size fashion career center is planned throughout the upcoming year.



Community Support and Involvement



ElegantPlus. com recently established a presence on MySpace to provide a networking space for plus size models, industry professionals and everyday full figured women.



ElegantPlus. com would also like to give back to the community it serves by offering event sponsorships, help with publicity and advertising to non profit groups serving the plus community. Each request is considered on a case by case basis, and help is offered dependent on available resources.



ElegantPlus. com would like to thank all that have made this website a success as we mark our Fourth Anniversary. Without enthusiastic readers, talented plus size women, an active size acceptance movement, and a growing full figured apparel industry we could not celebrate, support and encourage the women we serve.

New York based Niche Health/Beauty PR Firm -- Robin Leedy & Associates -- Launches New Social Media Division Chatter RL&A

New York based Niche Health/Beauty PR Firm -- Robin Leedy & Associates -- Launches New Social Media Division Chatter RL&A



New "Chatter RL&A" Social Media Division Talks to Target Consumers Directly, Increasing Menu of Services Provided by Boutique, New York-Based Public Relations Agency Specializing in National Consumer Brands



Mount Kisco, New York (PRWEB) December 11, 2007



Robin Leedy & Associates, a 21-year-old, award-winning public relations (PR) agency specializing in over-the-counter (OTC) health and beauty products, as well as lifestyle PR, today announces its new social media division, Chatter RL&A (http://www. robinleedyassociates. com/pr-chatter)



"As a supplement to traditional media outreach, Chatter RL&A now allows existing and new clients to bring their key messages directly to the consumer without the editorial filter that traditional media has in place," says Robin Russo, president and founder.



According to USA Today, more than one-third of internet users either read a blog or used a social networking site on a monthly basis. Additionally, health information is one of the top reasons that millions of people are searching the Internet.



"People with chronic health issues are among those regularly using the Internet, particularly blogs and message boards, in search of treatment options and a 'community' where they can interact with others with the same condition," says Russo. "In today's Internet-driven society, any comprehensive public relations campaign has to take social media into account, or it risks losing out on tremendous target audience potential."



Toward that end, Robin Leedy & Associates (http://www. robinleedyassociates. com) has hired John Whitcomb to coordinate the social media tactics that Chatter RL&A will undertake. Whitcomb brings his experience in viral marketing and Internet technology to this new effort to help integrate the social media element into clients' new and existing communication strategies.



"The online world is constantly evolving, where conversations change daily and individuals, who were once obscure, are turned into instant 'ceWebrities' with just a click of a mouse or an upload of a video," says Whitcomb. "While traditional media used to be the only voice to the masses, now, a company's voice, driven by the Internet and its various functions, can be just as powerful -- if not more so."



Whitcomb offers examples:

-A popular video that spreads like wildfire via YouTube

-A key blogger who can affect the outcome of a political race

-Online news feeds that reach core bloggers

-Simple message boards that can make (or break) a product in just a few consumer reviews



"Think of it as word of mouth...on steroids," he adds.



Russo says that social media -- or Web 2.0, as the marketing industry is calling it -- is one of the more radical changes the PR industry has had to face in the more than two decades she has been practicing in the field. "Instead of relying on the media to filter messages within the context of magazine articles or TV segments, social media allows our clients to publish their content, the way they want it, with messages intact," she adds. "However, what good is a client's blog or forum if no one knows about it? Our job is to help create client message content and make sure people know about it via a Web strategy and outreach."



And who better to drive the messaging and strategy of social media than the PR firms that have mastered the use of traditional media relations to successfully reach a core target. "For years, PR executives have been crafting messages that are palatable to both the end user (consumer) and the medium in which they were communicated. One way of looking at PR is as a stealth approach to brand messaging that includes a credible third-party endorsement in the form of news articles, broadcast segments, and the like," explains Russo. "Social media requires this same approach because messages that are too 'in your face,' such as many of those in advertising, will lose ground in the social media platform." While bloggers are the new journalists in the social media environment, they still need to be convinced, she adds.



"Using the latest technologies and channels available, Chatter RL&A (http://www. robinleedyassociates. com/pr-chatter) is set up to help RL&A clients navigate the maze that is the Internet and design customized, strategic campaigns to achieve marketing goals and objectives by producing strong return on investment. Added to traditional public relations tactics, social media programs will make PR even more cost effective than it already is within the whole marketing mix," says Russo.



The Chatter RL&A division will include services, such as blog creation, management, posting and seeding of blogs, RSS feeds, viral marketing, social networking sites, such as Facebook and MySpace, and viral video/graphics, as well as many other tactics that are continually evolving and helping to shape the way businesses and brands communicate via the Internet.



In conjunction with the launch of the new social media division, Robin Leedy & Associates is also launching its own blog Robin Leedy & Associates Blog (http://www. robinleedyassociates. com/pr-blog) that features agency news and highlights of campaigns, as well as what is happening in the PR industry as a whole.



For more information on how to incorporate social media into your brand strategy, contact Robin Russo or John Whitcomb at (914) 241-0086.

Sourcing Professional Services is Big Hit at Best Practices Xchange



The Best Practices Xchange ("BPX") (www. BestPracticesXchange. com) met on Friday, February 22, 2008 for a one day summit which was attended by a "Who's Who" of top Strategic Sourcing, Procurement, and Supply Chain Executives. This session focused on "Sourcing Professional Services", where BPX members explored how they effectively source professional services within today's volatile sourcing and supply-chain environment.



Oak Brook, IL (PRWEB) March 5, 2008



The Best Practices Xchange ("BPX") (www. BestPracticesXchange. com) met on Friday, February 22, 2008 for a one day summit which was attended by a "Who's Who" of top Strategic Sourcing, Procurement, and Supply Chain Executives. This session focused on "Sourcing Professional Services", where BPX members explored how they effectively source professional services within today's volatile sourcing and supply-chain environment.



This session was very well received by the membership, and received accolades all around. "This session was particularly insightful for me" declared one BPX delegate, the Vice President of Purchasing and Administrative Services for a large financial services company. "We have numerous take-aways for our team. It was the strongest BPX session ever!"



Feedback from other members was also very positive. Among those comments were:

 "At BPX we learn a lot in a very little time."  "BPX is an enjoyable and interactive learning experience."  "BPX is an excellent forum for sharing ideas with peers from other industries."



Dalip Raheja, President, CEO, and founding partner of The Mpower Group gave a presentation on how successful strategic sourcing of professional services requires the understanding of many aspects the landscape: supplier economics and the market; developing a enterprise-wide strategy and competency; formalizing the management process; aligning "due diligence" reviews with the complexity of opportunity; awarding contracts based on clear, consistent, and relevant criteria and business rationale; and leveraging specialists where appropriate, among other issues. Dalip's comments defined the standards by which professional sourcing should be conducted and set the stage for the ensuing Roundtable discussion.



Each of the members of BPX brought to the Roundtable discussion their own unique strategies for sourcing professional services and shared the experiences, successes, and challenges of their own environment. Each member completed a professional services sourcing Best Practices Diagnostic in advance of the meeting, which was used by Anne Kohler, SVP, COO, and founding partner of The Mpower Group, to facilitate the discussions. Issues such as: "how your sourcing group influences enterprise-wide professional services spend"; "what is your enterprise-wide professional services sourcing strategy"; and "what are the professional services sourcing approval processes employed within your enterprise" dominated the discussions.



Brad Peterson, Esq., of Mayer Brown LLP, a leading global law firm, spoke on Framework Agreements, professional services outsourcing, some pros and cons, and issues and challenges.

Enterprise-wide issue inclusions, rather than supplier-specific terms and conditions highlighted the core of Mr. Peterson's presentation. Members raved at Brad's presentation and applauded his insights, perspective, and "legal" view of the professional services sourcing and outsourcing issues.

Healthy Living for Moms Wants to Help More Women Become Aware of Ovarian Cancer

Healthy Living for Moms Wants to Help More Women Become Aware of Ovarian Cancer



Healthy Living for Moms is showing their support for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month by providing ways to know more about the "Silent Killer". Early detection increases the survival rate of ovarian cancer and knowing the signs and symptoms can help women seek treatment in time.



Newberry, Florida (PRWEB) September 3, 2006



Healthy Living for Moms, a website devoted to helping mothers live a healthier life through nutrition and fitness today announced their support of Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month with a special focus in September to educate women about early detection of ovarian cancer. Knowing the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer could help more women seek treatment in time to survive this deadly cancer.



“I have a personal reason for starting this effort,” explained Eunice Coughlin, webmaster of www. healthy-living-for-moms. com “My mother died in September last year from ovarian cancer. Our family received her diagnosis in an emergency room after she had been admitted for pain in her abdomen. We had no idea she had this horrible cancer. A week later, she died. For years, she was seeing a doctor regularly for check-ups but we never suspected that her problems with indigestion and backache could be signs of ovarian cancer. I want to honor my mother’s memory and hopefully, educate more women about ovarian cancer so that their families will be spared the pain that we went through when our mom died of ovarian cancer.”



Known as “the Silent Killer”, ovarian cancer disguises itself as other health problems and as a result many women go undiagnosed until it’s too late for treatment. When treated early, most women enjoy a 90% survival rate. Increased awareness could result in more women becoming a survivor.



Visitors to www. healthy-living-for-moms. com can show their support for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month by signing a petition to establish an Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month postage stamp, wearing the teal ribbon that signifies ovarian cancer awareness month or by making a contribution towards the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.



Last year, in his speech for Proclamation 7919 designating September as Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, President Bush said: “Early detection is essential to the successful treatment of ovarian cancer. The 5-year survival rate is higher than 90 percent for ovarian cancer patients whose disease is caught during the first stage of development. Most ovarian cancer cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage, however, because no reliable screening test exists for the disease. Because the early signs of ovarian cancer are easy to miss and often resemble the signs of other conditions, it is important for women to talk with their doctors about detection and be aware of the risk factors and symptoms of this cancer.



The NOCC has a provided a program that can be downloaded from www. healthy-living-for-moms. com called “Break the Silence” with tips on how to “start a conversation” with your doctor if you feel you are experiencing ovarian cancer symptoms.



If you would like to learn more about this awareness campaign, go to www. healthy-living-for-moms. com/signs-and-symptoms-of-ovarian-cancer. html (http://www. healthy-living-for-moms. com/signs-and-symptoms-of-ovarian-cancer. html ). Healthy Living for Moms was founded in June 2005 by Eunice Coughlin to help moms of all ages and stages develop fitness in their physical and spiritual lives.

National Silver Alert® Introduces "SafetyNet" Software

National Silver Alert® Introduces "SafetyNet" Software



SafetyNet is an all inclusive software solution for independent and assisted living facilities and nursing homes.



Palm Harbor, FL (PRWEB) June 29, 2010



“SafetyNet” is a resident management program that captures and stores vital health, medical and emergency contact information as well as a photograph, living will and DNR in a secure, online repository, which is tied directly to National Silver Alert, Inc.’s 24/7 emergency response program. In the event of an emergency, a resident’s vital information can be quickly retrieved and shared with emergency responders and/or health care providers.



Residents of living facilities who implement the SafetyNet software, will each receive a set of ID cards, and a pendant or bracelet. These items are very important in helping recover anyone who has a tendency to wander.



Neil Arfmann, President of National Silver Alert Program said, “SafetyNet is the total, affordable solution for senior care facilities. It offers an additional level of security both on and off property, and provides peace-of-mind to the families of residents.”



One of the most life-threatening behaviors of Alzheimer’s disease is wandering. Statistics show that approximately 60% of those with the disease will wander. If a person wanders once, they will most likely wander again. If not found within 24 hours, approximately 50% of wanderers may suffer serious injury or death.



The National Silver Alert Program, introduced on October 1, 2009, has received much praise and success.

Though Joining Late... Pakistan Gains Visible Presence in Long-Term Tsunami Relief Works, Scientist of the Year Launches a Gigantic Mission

Though Joining Late... Pakistan Gains Visible Presence in Long-Term Tsunami Relief Works, Scientist of the Year Launches a Gigantic Mission



World renowned epidemiologist Prof. Dr. Aurangzeb Hafi has voluntarily conducted an extensive research in Tsunami Affected coastal areas and has given alarming details.



(PRWEB) September 3, 2005



In ramification of the century’s most devastating disaster ‘Tsunami’, various coordinated efforts are being made by the Governments of the affected countries with technical inputs from international organizational and institutional platforms, including UN, UNICEF, WHO, WFP and several other agencies.



Amongst other institutions, Helen Keller Intl. and Sir Aurangzeb Intl. are the two, which are principally focusing upon the likelihood of different types of physical and mental disabilities in Tsunami affected areas.



Several fact-finding surveys have been conducted during the last 8 months of the aftermath of Tsunami, however the credit goes to an independent Pakistani researcher for conducting the ‘First’ Epidemiological fact-finding and need analysis survey for the likelihood of different types of abnormalities in newly born and unborn babies.[1]



The survey, known as the Tsunami ‘Child Retardation Risk Assessment’ [CRRA] was primarily devised to detect, examine and gauge the risk of child retardation in the children below 5 years as well as in the unborn babies, in the post disaster situation. It also covered the essential analysis of drinking water and its contaminations, after the crucially poisonous water being absorbed by the soil.[2]



All of the research work during CRRA & CRRM, which, actually requires a number of institutional superfluity, has been executed almost single-handedly by the splendid researcher of Pakistan.



Pof. Dr. Aurangzeb Hafi is the first South Asian, whose name has been inscribed in the Roll of Honor in The Sovereign Royal Order of The Knights of Peace and Justice, and has been honored and knighted in the category of 'de jure'.[3] He was also one of the six researchers short-listed out of 1376 scientists belonging to 900 universities of 60 countries, and was declared as Man of the Year in Interdisciplinary Sciences.[4]



On completion of the first epidemiological survey, Dr. Hafi has given an alert alarm for a vulnerable risk increase of child retardation in newly-born and unborn babies. He has emphasized upon the need of immediate action to be taken by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for this specific issue.[5]



To bring the situation under control, some special immune enhancing and nutritional supplements should be developed and should be exclusively formulated, by focusing upon, and according to the specified needs of the post disaster situation, he mentioned.



The findings of [CRRA] survey along with the elucidated suggestions made by the researcher, have been made available to conscientious international agencies for further actions to be taken upon. The TsunamiÂ’s CRRA Survey has provided a core nucleus, on which response coordination can be built. It has provided important and major issues to be raised up and dealt with.[6]



On humanitarian basis, he is willing to extend his services voluntarily, and ready to cooperate with governmental and non governmental organizations to help the victims of Tsunami, he added.[7]



Dr Hafi told that the extensive research project was a joint venture of two non governmental platforms namely MAVSO Intl. and English Biscuit Manufacturers ( Pvt ) Limited of Pakistan as a contribution from Pakistanis, for the Tsunami victims. EBM is bearing all of his expenses of lodging-boarding and air-traveling, while MAVSO Intl. is responsible for the instrumentations and equipmentations regarding the project, he told. 



To a question, he said that he is rendering his research services merely on humanitarian basis and not paid by any local or international agency.



The officials of CSGU have reportedly confirmed that he has also voluntarily declined the remunerations for his services, offered by Sri Lanka, saying that the money of his wages should be spent upon poor retardad children of the Tsunami camps.



“All services rendered by me should be considered as a sympathetic and humanitarian ‘token’ from my country…Pakistan, and not only from my own individual self “, stated the task executer researcher Prof. Aurangzeb Hafi.



Prof. Hafi has designed a well-practicable program to address the impeded setback of the specific matter.



Now a days he is on board to embark upon tracking the next phase of his project, i. e. Tsunami ‘Child Retardation Risk Management’ [CRRM]. In this phase of the project, he has also planned to provide the maximum possible quantity of the recommended nutritional supplements in Aceh, Sumatra, and Sri Lanka in an earliest possible timeframe and seeks for philanthropic help by local, regional and international institutions, donors and organizational platforms.[7]



  The esteemed contributions of The Tsunami 'Child Retardation Risk Assessment & Management' Projects have fetched a prudently benevolent laurel, with a justly respectable visibility of Pakistan at an international echelon.

Death to Dieting

Death to Dieting



Diets simply don't work. Prolonged starvation and deprivation leads to diet disaster and wrecked metabolisms.



Lees Summit, MO (PRWEB) November 17, 2005



Most people who go on diets end up gaining more weight than they lose and find it harder to lose weight the second, third and fourth time around. Lets face it, yo yo dieting has become America's least favorite national pasttime.



Diets fail for several main reasons. First, dieting, especially extreme dieting, causes the body to go into starvation mode and instead of burning fat, and excess pounds, it holds on to them, making weight loss especially difficult. Extreme dieting often results in mere water weight loss, or far worse, muscle loss which further lessens ones' natural caloric burning ability. The last primary reason diets fail is because deprivation is a nearly impossible long term, weight loss strategy. It leads to binging and more dieting. Taken together, the "diet" approach is very difficult on the body and the metabolism.



Diets have one thing in common; they are temporary changes to ones' diet, which makes eating a chore. In order to achieve effective and long term weight loss, one must take back the natural enjoyment of food and learn to eat properly. A proper weight loss plan ensures that the participant loses fat safely and naturally without supplements or drugs, and expels toxins from the body. Physical training and aeorobic workouts are also integral to losing weight and increasing bodily attractiveness.



An effective alternative to dieting can be found here: Http://DoneRightCorp. net



Dieting can be a sure-fire way to dissapointment. Millions of individuals try and fail at diets every day. Learning to eat healthy and in proper proportion, while following a training and aerobic regimen can go a long way in ones' pursuit to losing weight and looking good without resorting to starvation or deprivation methods.

Perminova, Inc. Has Been Accepted into the Connect Springboard Program

Perminova, Inc. Has Been Accepted into the Connect Springboard Program



San Diego based Perminova, Inc. is steadily making waves in the Healthcare IT market with its web-based (SaaS) cardiovascular surgery information system (CVIS), CardioSure™.



San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2010



San Diego based Perminova, Inc. is striving to be the next great success story in a long line of great companies that have graduated from the CONNECT Springboard incubator program. Perminova is steadily making waves in the Healthcare IT market with its web-based (SaaS) cardiovascular surgery information system, CardioSure™. Perminova’s founders, Dr. Gregory Feld and Robert Cass, have each spent much of their lives working in the hospital. Together, they’ve created a unified cardiovascular information system that is on its way to becoming the standard in the traditionally underserved and highly disjointed area of Cardiology. With its system already deployed in two hospitals and four procedure suites at University of California San Diego (UCSD) Medical Center, and with additional other hospitals committed, including the highly acclaimed California Pacific Medical Center located in San Francisco, CA, they are well on their way.



Just as important as signing new customers, however, is creating a clear marketing message and developing a sustainable business plan in order to attract quality investment capital, foster innovation, and service existing customers.



“We have a very talented team, with diverse backgrounds,” says Brian Powers, director of Business Development for Perminova, and he continues “As a startup in this tight credit market, Perminova has focused its energy on building a game changing platform and testing and proving excellence with our research and development partner, UCSD Medical Center. Now, with successful, proven products, we have turned to the CONNECT Springboard incubator program to get us to the next level.”



It’s in these areas that the CONNECT programs have a proven track record. Since 2005, 118 companies have completed the CONNECT Springboard process and 75% of these companies are still in operation as of December 2008. These companies have raised over $110 million in seed, venture and debt financing. The Springboard program managers report that if a startup company can raise funding during the first 2 years after its graduation, the survival rate rises to 88 percent. CONNECT was founded by UCSD back in 1985 at the urging of the region’s business community to link high-tech and life sciences entrepreneurs to the resources they need for success; CONNECT’s program has since become both a model for supporting and fostering entrepreneurship in high-tech and life sciences, and also one of the most successful programs for supporting entrepreneurs at all stages of growth. In a feature called "Incubation Nation," Inc. Magazine (May 2010 issue, page 98, http://www. inc. com/magazine/20100501/the-best-business-incubators. html (http://www. inc. com/magazine/20100501/the-best-business-incubators. html)) the article sites CONNECT as the only accelerator highlighted in California, "San Diego: CONNECT, one of the nation's first incubators, has been working with start-ups since 1985; the 2,000 ventures it has assisted have received more than $10 billion in funding.”



Underlying CONNECT’s formula for success is in providing its incubating companies with free coaching from highly successful and seasoned senior industry executives, as well as corporate and patent attorneys, venture capitalists, accountants and engineers, who graciously donate their time, energy and insight. Companies accepted into the Springboard program receive three to eight weeks of coaching from one or more of CONNECT’s Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs). Ruprecht von Buttlar, Business Creation and Development Director for CONNECT said: “Perminova has received mentoring in CONNECT’s Springboard program since May 2010 and makes rapid progress under the guidance of two highly experienced and successful Entrepreneurs-in-Residence (EIRs), Rick Kreysar and James Pantera. As a start-up in the Healthcare IT field, Perminova will streamline their business model, go-to-market plan and financial strategy with additional help from Springboard CFOs and marketing experts. Graduating from Springboard, Perminova will be eligible to participate in CONNECT’s Venture Roundtable program, present to CONNECT’s Deal Network, a network of high net worth individuals as well as work with members from the Tech Coast Angels (TCA).”



Rick Kreysar, one of the CONNECT Springboard EIR’s working with Perminova, is a former board member of Lawson Software (NASDAQ: LWSN) and former CEO of SendMail, Determine Software (acquired by Selectica, Inc) and Accrue Software (acquired by Datanautics Inc); he has held senior executive positions for McAfee, Computer Associates (CA), Sprint and others. Throughout his corporate career, he has successfully acquired over 25 companies and taken two public. “I immediately liked the potential of Perminova when I first heard their presentation,” said Rick. “I have enjoyed working with their team to help them craft a more streamlined marketing message so they can take their highly efficient, safety conscious software solution to a more targeted market with maximum opportunity for success.”



About Perminova

Perminova, Inc. specializes in the next generation of web-hosted cardiovascular and surgery information management systems.

SpaFinder's State of Spa Travel Survey: Economy Impacting Spa Travel in '09, But Travel Agents Optimistic for Strengthening Over Rest of Year

SpaFinder's State of Spa Travel Survey: Economy Impacting Spa Travel in '09, But Travel Agents Optimistic for Strengthening Over Rest of Year



2009: the year of the spa travel deal -- travelers overwhelmingly seek both 'pampering' and wellness



New York, NY (PRWEB) August 19, 2009



According to SpaFinder's (http://www. spafinder. com) third-annual State of Spa Travel survey released today, travel agents experienced a strong year for spa travel in a tough 2008, but report the industry was measurably impacted in the first half of 2009 as the economy's downward spiral quickened. However, agents also indicated that they see light at the end of the tunnel, and forecast strengthening for the sector across the remainder of the year.



Highlights from SpaFinder's survey on emerging spa travel trends include: 2009 is shaping up to be an unprecedented year for spa travel deals; wellness and traditional 'pampering' are not opposing categories, as both are of paramount importance to spa travelers today; and the late-2008 AIG scandal had a relatively modest, but lingering, impact on business spa travel.



"While it's hardly surprising that the 2009 economy has impacted spa travel, compared with other travel sectors it continues to show resilience," said Susie Ellis, president of SpaFinder. "After all, spa industry research concurs that the number one reason people go to spas is to de-stress, and today people are more stressed than ever. With consumers increasingly perceiving their health and wellness as a 'need' rather than a mere 'want' - combined with this historic year for spa deals - you have a recipe for relative industry strength."



SpaFinder's State of Spa Travel survey was conducted with travel professionals in June and July of 2009, and is designed to illuminate unfolding developments in spa travel, including pricing, consumer adoption, demographics, and popular locations and amenities.



KEY FINDINGS:



Economic Impact: Strong 2008, Challenging First-Half 2009, Optimism for Strengthening by Year-End



In 2008, a significant majority of agents (69%) reported no declines in spa travel bookings, with (35%) reporting spa travel held steady with 2007's numbers, while 34% reported a year-over-year increase. First-half 2009 tells a different story: 58% reported declines year-over-year through June, but only one in five agents reported that spa travel declined 'significantly.' And travel agents are optimistic about a second-half strengthening: 66% predict no overall declines for full-year 2009 - and while 34% do expect declines, only 7% report they will be 'significant.'



The Year of the Deal



In 2008, 70% of agents reported that spa resorts were lowering rates and rolling out more special deals than in years past - but this year that number jumped to 90%. And 57% report that spas are offering 'historically' or 'significantly' more aggressive deals than ever before. This industry strategy precisely matches what travelers are actively seeking: agents report that the number one change in spa traveler's behavior in 2009 has been 'seeking significant deals,' followed by 'opting for shorter vacations,' and 'traveling closer to home.'



Price-Per-Night Trending Down



Wallet-consciousness (http://www. spafinder. com/spaguide/readerschoice/categorydetail. jsp? award=Affordability&year=2008) is also reflected in the most frequently booked per-night price: 74% of spa travel booked in '09 falls under $299 a night, and price ranges over $300 all experienced declines from 2008. Last year, 60% of spa travel fell in the $250-$399 range, while this year 60% falls in the lower $200 to $299 range.*



Wellness or 'Benefit' Travel Continues to Spike



Health and wellness spa offerings continue to rank as a critical factor for travelers, with 83% of agents reporting it's either 'very' or 'somewhat' important to their clients. But spa travelers demand both wellness and 'pampering' elements. 96% of agents report 'traditional pampering' elements also rank as important. Spirituality offerings (http://www. spafinder. com/spaguide/readerschoice/categorydetail. jsp? award=MindBodySpirit&year=2008) (yoga, meditation, etc.) are also gaining in importance. And with consumers sensitive about the economy and justifying their spending, 52% of agents report that travelers are notably more interested in 'benefit' vacations (hitting a spa for tangible benefits like weight loss (http://www. spafinder. com/spaguide/readerschoice/categorydetail. jsp? award=WeightLoss&year=2008), fitness, etc.) in 2009.



The 'AIG Effect'



With well-publicized criticism of AIG's spa resort 'spree' in late '08, agents were queried on its impact on their group business/corporate spa travel. While 55% report the AIG story had some impact on their clients' travel decisions, 45% reported it had no effect. However, this relatively modest 'AIG Effect" has exhibited staying power: 76% report it's either remained an issue or escalated for their clients since.



Emerging Trends



Agents reports that 'social spa-ing' (groups/friends traveling to the spa together), an increase in travelers seeking health/wellness elements, and people choosing spas as destinations for special occasions like honeymoons, weddings, etc. rank as the top three emerging 2009 trends.



Spa Access Still #1 Consideration for Travelers

RadSciences Group Announces Release of 2008 Radiology Compensation Review

RadSciences Group Announces Release of 2008 Radiology Compensation Review



RadSciences Group is releasing the results of the most recent Radiology Compensation Review that focuses on real-time wage changes and staffing trends that have affected radiology groups and hospitals over the past year, including their recruitment and retention efforts. The Compensation Review is a free resource that provides a summary of current data and market trends in all modalities of radiology.



Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 22, 2008



2008 Radiology Compensation Review -- The latest figures show a continued market demand for Sonographers, Vascular Sonographers, Cardiac Sonographers and Interventional Technologists. The number of General, Vascular and Cardiac Sonographer searches conducted by RadSciences Group increased from 47.9 percent of overall searches in 2006 to 58.5 percent in 2007.



The U. S. Department of Labor projects the need for an additional 23,000 Ultrasound Technologists by 2014. The aging "baby boomer" population and the advancement in imaging technology will likely drive the demand for imaging procedures to nearly half a billion outpatients and 100 million inpatient scans by 2008 according to recent research released by independent healthcare research firms. Considering the nation's aging population -- and looming healthcare staffing crisis, as reported by USA Today -- healthcare administrators must take heed to improve retention and increase recruiting efforts. There is an increasing need for hospitals to fill urgent radiology department needs and retain existing providers.



RadSciences Group works with healthcare leaders to improve retention and talent selection by specializing in providing organizational development programs and recruitment services to hospitals throughout the country. By partnering with clients, RadSciences Group is able to provide experienced Allied Health Professionals with the best information available and help healthcare organizations everywhere to secure the talent necessary to achieve proper staffing ratios.



Mission Statement: At RadSciences Group, our mission is to be a recognized leader in talent selection, leadership development and recruitment within hospitals and medical imaging organizations. More than just a professional search firm, RadSciences Group desires to be a resource and partner to healthcare leaders who believe that talent selection is more than just education and credentials, but also the science of understanding an individual's beliefs, motivators and values.

Xtalks is pleased to present the Open Source Software for the Enterprise web seminar.



There is still time to register for free at: http://xtalks. com/opensrc2.ashx (http://xtalks. com/opensrc2.ashx)



One of the most important aspects of Open Source Software is the huge community of highly skilled developers throughout the world working to create and build software quickly and efficiently.



More companies are migrating parts of their infrastructure to open source software. IT executives need software that is more flexible, customizable, open, robust, and efficient as well as less expensive from a total cost of ownership point of view.



Migrating to OSS is the best option to reducing the total costs of ownership of an IT system due to the suppression of most licensing costs and reduction of costs related to system administration. IT executives need to monitor and manage the development process carefully to ensure the developers are acting appropriately.



Take away points include:



Has OSS become part of the main stream? Should you migrate to OSS? Evaluating risks and benefits of adapting and using OSS Interoperability of implemented proprietary software and OSS Impact of patent legislation on using OSS



The web conference is sponsored by OpenLogic.

Turnberry Enters Joint-Venture Partnership with Lynx Strategic Development to Develop Beach House by Richard Meier



Turnberry, Ltd. announced today a joint-venture partnership in which it will assume the managing partner role in the development of the Beach House luxury oceanfront condominium near Bal Harbour Shops. The development is scheduled for groundbreaking this summer. Aventura, Fla.-based Turnberry will oversee and co-develop the project with Lynx Strategic Development, the developers that conceptualized and created Beach House. Turnberry will co-sell the project with Prodigy International.



SURFSIDE, Fl. (PRWEB) April 13, 2006 -–



Turnberry, Ltd. announced today a joint-venture partnership in which it will assume the managing partner role in the development of the Beach House luxury oceanfront condominium near Bal Harbour Shops. The development is scheduled for groundbreaking this summer.



Aventura, Fla.-based Turnberry will oversee and co-develop the project with Lynx Strategic Development, the developers that conceptualized and created Beach House.



“We’re tremendously excited about this opportunity as we’ve admired Beach House and its trendsetting Richard Meier design for quite some time. We believe that Lynx, our joint venture partner, has done an outstanding job” said Turnberry President/Chief Operating Officer Bruce Weiner. “While Turnberry continues to expand in markets such as Las Vegas, Houston, Washington D. C. and The Bahamas, we also place great emphasis on remaining an integral part of the South Florida landscape. Beach House will be a fantastic development for us to create right in our own backyard.”



Turnberry will co-sell the project with Prodigy International. “We are very impressed with the strategy and price level achieved by Prodigy International in selling this project” – said Turnberry Vice President Jim Cohen, who oversees sales and marketing for Turnberry Ocean Colony and now will also head up Beach House. “It made the deal very attractive to us”-he added.



Lynx President Ian Ludmir said the “stars had aligned” when Turnberry decided to participate in the project. “This is incredibly rewarding as it validates our business plan and allows us to focus on the creation of our other real estate projects” he said. “It was always our intention to bring in a full-service development firm after the initial stages of pre-sales and pre - development and we’re thrilled to find such an ideal partner in Turnberry.”



Prodigy International President Rodrigo Nino said Turnberry Beach House now features the ultimate collaboration. “The fusion of Richard Meier’s vision and Turnberry’s expertise will bring Beach House to an even higher level ” he said.



Featuring more than 200 linear feet of oceanfront property, Beach House residences will offer unobstructed, sweeping panoramic views amidst private landscaped gardens of lush palm groves and tropical plants. Designed by the award-winning Meier, the 12-story glass building will contain 101 one-, two-, three - and four-bedroom residences with floor-to-ceiling glass windows, expansive terraces, and the latest in smart home technology including wireless access and an integrated control system for home appliances and electronics.



A full array of luxury amenities await Beach House residents, including separate Ocean and Rooftop Sky pools, private beach club with cabanas and lounging areas, a state-of-the-art health club, a wine and cigar lounge and spa with sauna, steam and treatment rooms.



The development will be created on the site of the Beach House Hotel, 9449 Collins Avenue in Surfside. The developer expects to demolish the hotel and begin construction this summer.



Led by Chairman/Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Soffer, Turnberry, Ltd. has built numerous South Florida landmarks, including Turnberry Isle Resort and Golf Club and Porto Vita. Currently, Turnberry is completing development of the sold-out, $650 million Turnberry Place, the first high-rise condominium community to be built overlooking the Las Vegas Strip, and will soon break ground on Turnberry Tower Arlington, the first ultra-luxury high-rise in the Washington D. C. area. Additionally, the company is creating upscale condominium-hotel towers at The MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Fontainebleau Resort in Miami Beach and Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas.



Lynx Strategic Development is a Miami-based Real Estate Development Company with a unique approach. A passion for innovation and quality is the core business strategy, as a way to differentiate the company in an increasingly competitive environment. Lynx is focusing on ultra sophisticated buyers and investors as a niche market. The company started operations two years ago; however it is rapidly growing and proving its commitment with forward-looking thinking.



Prodigy International represents third party developers as the exclusive agent for sales and marketing. Headquartered in the Four Seasons Tower, Prodigy is a cornerstone for developers who want to position their projects as industry icons through achievements in terms of sales price, price per square foot and marketing direction.
