VentrAssist(TM) LVAD First 100 Patients - Clinical Data Presented at International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation meeting



Ventracor (ASX:VCR) announced today the presentation of summary clinical data of the first 100 patients implanted with the VentrAssist(TM) third generation left ventricular assist device (LVAD), an implantable blood pump designed for long term use in patients with advanced heart failure.



SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) April 30, 2007



 There have now been 108 patients implanted with the VentrAssist, for over 50 patient years of support, and 42 patients currently supported, with the longest duration of two years and eight months. This is greater experience than all other third generation centrifugal LVADs combined. The VentrAssist is market released in Europe (CE Mark) and is the subject of two US clinical trials for Bridge to Transplant (BTT) and Destination Therapy (DT) indications.



Summary clinical data from the first 100 VentrAssist patients was presented today at a plenary session of the 2007 annual meeting of the International Society of Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) by Professor Don Esmore of the Alfred Hospital, in Melbourne.



As a pioneer in the field of LVADs, Professor Esmore has the most clinical experience with and was the first surgeon in the world to implant the VentrAssist. A full copy of the presentation is available at www. ventracor. com.



"The VentrAssist has changed the lives of many people, and expanded the choices for treatment of end stage heart failure. Full results of the 33 patients enrolled in the CE Mark Bridge to Transplant trial showed a survival rate of around 85 percent," Professor Esmore told the international audience of heart failure specialists.



"Since the first implant in 2003, we have learned much about patient selection and support, and we expect that future clinical trials will continue to show improvement in patient outcomes," Professor Esmore added.



Ventracor CEO, Peter Crosby said, "We are proud to be showing the VentrAssist at the ISHLT, as well as strengthening our collaborative relationships with leading LVAD implanting centres, cardiologists and surgeons around the world. As we move into the key US Destination Therapy Trial and the pivotal Bridge to Transplant trials, those collaborative relationships will be a key to our future success."



ISHLT attracts more than 3,000 medical professionals involved in the management and treatment of heart and lung transplant patients around the world. See www. ishlt. org for additional information.

These campers will not only learn defense and offense on the basketball but most importantly will learn life skills and the importants of education.



Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2010



Businessman, Music Mogul, and philanthropist Percy Miller aka Master P along with his multi talented son Romeo will sponsor over a thousand kids ages 7-16 for a free basketball camp alongside NBA star Rashad McCants and Urban Born founder Johnel Langerston with special guests Magic Johnson and Mark Jackson. P. Miller is combining entertainment, sports and education to teach life lessons to the at-risk youth to be more than entertainers and athletes, emphasizing the importance of an education, being leaders, saying no to drugs and gangs which makes the Game of Life Basketball Camp like no other. These campers will not only learn defense and offense on the basketball court but will be spending some of the time in the classroom with life coaches learning valuable life lessons from true testimonies. “This will be an experience that these kids will remember for the rest of their lives. My basketball coach help save my life, hopefully I can do the same for this generation” says P. Miller. This free camp will begin Saturday, June 26, 8 AM at Pasadena High School.



“The purpose of the camp is to allow children to have the opportunity to exercise their bodies and their minds. It is important to us to share with the youth that they can do both. We totally support what our first lady Michelle Obama is doing with her efforts in fighting obesity. This is just our way of doing our part” says Miller. We try and spread the word of education and the message that just because you come from a low-income community it doesn’t mean you can’t strive to be better.



We are hoping that with our camps we can inspire these kids to have vision, follow their dreams and believe in themselves. They need to know that education is essential and that they do have options” says Romeo.

P. Miller and Romeo have invited other celebrity guest to participate in a celebrity basketball game that will take place June 26th, 4pm at Pasadena High School. Other artists who have committed are, Megan Good, Joe Torre, Ray J, Anthony Anderson, Al Harrington, Jalen Rose, Demar DeRozan, and James Harden to name a few.



The mission of the Urban Born Foundation is to raise funds, create awareness for the lack of education that destroys the lives of inner city youth. By engaging the people, community leaders, celebrities and pro-athletes, financial support is given to the development of Urban Born youth centers and after school programs.

Laid-Off Workers Turning to Tax-Deductible Health Savings Accounts

Laid-Off Workers Turning to Tax-Deductible Health Savings Accounts



As millions of Americans lose their jobs, affordable healthcare plans are becoming increasingly important. Health Savings Accounts are becoming popular tools to help employees pay for the cost of their healthcare, even when they have COBRA plans.



Fort Collins, CO (PRWEB) March 25, 2009



Fort Collins, Colorado -- An estimated 2.6 million Americans lost their jobs in 2008 and thousands more are expected to lose their jobs in 2009. With many Americans accustomed getting their healthcare coverage through their jobs, millions now turn to alternative coverage options so they can continue to have affordable healthcare. One of the most affordable and practical health care coverage options is a Health Savings Account (HSA), according to HSA for America.



An HSA is a tax-deductible savings account that lets individuals set aside money to cover the cost of their healthcare. Like with an IRA, individuals can invest the funds from their HSAs into high interest rate mutual funds, stocks, money markets, and more. The growth on those investments is tax-free and the money can be used to pay for qualifying medical expenses, including dental expenses, mental therapy, physical therapy, alternative treatments (such as acupuncture), transportation and lodging related to medical expenses, and even non-prescription medications.



"We're finding an increase in interest for our HSA plans," said Wiley Long, President of HSA for America. "As Americans are losing their jobs, they are recognizing that they still need to find a way to afford healthcare for themselves and their families. An HSA is a great addition to a high-deductible insurance plan, like a COBRA plan, because it gives individuals a tax deduction when they set aside money for their healthcare. The money grows tax-free in the savings account. Then, if they need the money for something else down the road that is not related to their healthcare, they can still have access to that money."



Moreover, according to a recent survey by Information Strategies, Inc., 50% of individuals on COBRA that also have an HSA policy are using their HSA funds to pay for their high COBRA premiums each month. Only 51 percent of survey respondents said they have actively investigated HSAs as an alternative healthcare benefit. "We are hoping that more laid-off workers take a look at HSA plans as a way to cut their health insurance costs," said Long. "HSAs not only benefit individuals, but they can also be used to cover healthcare costs for an entire family."



More About HSA for America



HSA for America offers a wide spectrum of Health Savings Account programs for individuals, families, and businesses that help members save up to 50 percent off of the cost of their health insurance. HSA for America's HSA plans reduce insurance premiums, and allow members to save money on qualifying medical expenses, including dental expenses, mental therapy, physical therapy, alternative treatments, transportation and lodging related to medical expenses, and non-prescription medications.

Fair Isaac Provides Faster Path to Smart Decisions with Release of Model Builder 3.6



Enhancements greatly improve time to value for both new and expert predictive modelers.

The latest release of Fair Isaac's software platform for developing and deploying predictive models and analytic technologies enables businesses to streamline the model development process, significantly reducing the time required to analyze data, build powerful models and deploy automated, more profitable decision strategies.



Model Builder is a core component of Fair Isaac's Enterprise Decision Management (EDM) suite of solutions and technologies that enable organizations to automate, improve and connect decisions across their business. It allows analysts to quickly define and test predictive models, and deploy them to production systems without recoding by programmers.

 A data import wizard to accelerate the process of importing data into Model Builder's native format from a variety of common sources, including fixed-width and delimited text and SAS datasets.  An automated dataset analysis routine that summarizes essential facts about the data to help users quickly and easily assess data quality.  An easily configured sampling and partitioning activity that allows users to intelligently sample down large datasets, append sample weights to records, and partition data into training and testing groups, without any advanced coding.  A scorecard creation wizard that makes building a new scorecard faster and easier than ever before, while continuing to provide users the deep flexibility they need to fine-tune model training parameters and constraints.



"As our customers expand their use of predictive models, it's critical to bring new employees up to speed quickly," said Carole-Ann Matignon, vice president of product management, Enterprise Decision Management Technologies at Fair Isaac. "Model Builder 3.6 helps new users immediately perform hands-on modeling - helping new clients more quickly realize the value of predictive models in improving business performance - while still providing the depth and flexibility necessary for fine-tuning models and satisfying regulatory requirements of our existing customers."



The base Model Builder application provides the framework for analyzing data and deploying models. Innovations Modules, including the Scorecard, Segmentation ART™ and Data Spiders™ modules integrate seamlessly with Model Builder to deliver advanced analytic technologies for building scorecard models, identifying optimal population segments for modeling, and automating the discovery of powerful predictive variables from transaction data. Predictive models can be directly deployed within Fair Isaac's Blaze Advisor™ business rules flows.



Model Builder offers the same model development environment Fair Isaac analytics experts use every day to build powerful custom predictive models for companies worldwide across industries, including financial services, insurance, retail, telecommunications and healthcare. Businesses can improve the efficiency and functionality of their modeling capabilities, and better leverage critical data assets to make the best decisions about their customers across the customer lifecycle, from originations and account and customer management to collections and recovery.

Richard L. Lindstrom, M. D., Nationally Acclaimed Refractive and Laser Surgeon, Joins Omega Eye Health Medical Advisory Panel

Richard L. Lindstrom, M. D., Nationally Acclaimed Refractive and Laser Surgeon, Joins Omega Eye Health Medical Advisory Panel



Mr. Robert D. Bauer, President of Omega Eye Health announces the appointment of Dr. Richard L. Lindstrom, MD to the Medical Advisory Panel for Omega Eye Health, a subsidiary of LifeGuard Health.



Plymouth Meeting, PA (PRWEB) November 14, 2008



Mr. Robert D. Bauer, President of Omega Eye Health announces the appointment of Dr. Richard L. Lindstrom, MD to the Medical Advisory Panel for Omega Eye Health, a subsidiary of LifeGuard Health.



Dr. Lindstrom is the founder and attending surgeon of Minnesota Eye Consultants and Adjunct Professor Emeritus at the University of Minnesota, Department of Ophthalmology. He is a board-certified ophthalmologist and an internationally recognized leader in corneal, cataract, refractive and laser surgery. He is medical director of TLCVision, Sightpath Medical which includes MSS and Laser Vision. He is also medical director of Refractec.



Dr. Lindstrom is past President of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons. He serves on the Executive Committee and is the Chair of the ASCRS Foundation. He is also past President of the International Society of Refractive Surgery, the International Intraocular Implant Club, and the International Refractive Surgery Club. He is the Global Education Liaison of the International Society of Refractive Surgery of the American Academy of Ophthalmology.



Dr. Lindstrom holds over 35 patents in ophthalmology and has developed a number of solutions, intraocular lenses and instruments that are used in clinical practices globally. His professional affiliations are extensive. He serves on the Board of Directors of TLC Vision, Occulogix/OcuSense, Acufocus, Refractec, and the Minnesota Medical Foundation.



"Omega Eye Health is incredibly fortunate to have Dr. Lindstrom as a member of the Medical Advisory Panel. He has been at the forefront of ophthalmology's evolutionary changes throughout his career. As an international lecturer, he also provides a worldwide educational vehicle on the effectiveness of preventing and managing chronic inflammatory diseases including Dry Eye Syndrome and Ocular Surface Disease through the use of nutriceuticals", stated Dr. Michael B. Gross, MD, FACOG, VP and Chief Medical Officer of LifeGuard Health.



Clinical research supports findings that the Omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), a natural anti-inflammatory, reduces systemic inflammation, a contributing factor to the irritation and discomfort associate with Dry Eye Syndrome. Also, recent studies from the National Eye Institute in Bethesda, MD found that a higher intake of Omega-3 docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) was associated with a decreased risk of having neovascular Age-Related Macular Degeneration.

Cathay Pacific Airways Teams Up with Denise Spanek of VisageStudio. com Offering the Ultimate Essential Air Repair Kit

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2007



Cathay Pacific Airways celebrated 60 years of service by presenting their loyal customers with an exclusive gift, Air Repair Kit, from San Francisco skin care guru Denise Spanek of VisageStudio. com. Spanek's Air Repair Kit has become a must-have for those who want to look their best before, during and after a flight. Cathay Pacific Airways approached Spanek as they wanted to thank their top customers, Marco Polo Club Members, in a special way.



"We were very excited to partner with Denise Spanek to create this customized Air Repair Kit for our high-level Marco Polo Club members in the United States," said Hugo Lai, Cathay Pacific Airways' Director of Marketing Communications, Americas. "They are our most loyal frequent flyers who log in hundreds of thousands of miles every year, and we want to recognize them with something exclusive, upscale and stylish, yet practical. The Air Repair Kit fits their jet-setting life style perfectly."



Spanek created this special Air Repair Kit to combat aspects of flying that take a toll on the skin including low humidity, re-circulated cabin air and after-travel fatigue. The typical tell-tale signs of air travel -- dry, flakey skin, wrinkles and dark circles -- are quickly and effectively treated with Air Repair Kit. This luxurious kit is comprised of a complete system of the finest products from around world that protect, nourish, hydrate, and renew the skin. "I was delighted to offer Cathay Pacific Airways a complete all-in-one kit that would help their elite flyers look and feel better and achieve visible results," said Spanek.



Spanek spent several years searching for products globally, as well as formulating her own to create the ideal skin care travel kit.

What I couldn't find throughout my travels, I created myself, which resulted in my own skin care line that I incorporated into the kit," says Spanek. "These products help to relieve environmental stresses on the skin, whether you are flying or going from sun to snow."



The kit offers the convenience of top of the line full sized products that may be placed in a quart size plastic baggie and carried on the plane for use during flight.

Air Repair Rescue Balm, from Spanek's own proprietary skin care line, is an intensely rich, nourishing balm that may be used on the face, lips, and around the eyes to prevent dehydration. Nurturing, natural ingredients sweet almond, sunflower, borage and jojoba oils, vitamin E and shea butter help prevent trans-epidermal water loss, which is a primary cause of dry skin.



Air Repair Skin Vitality Mineral Mist, also from Spanek's skin care line, is a quick and effective re-hydrator to relieve dryness and fatigue. May be sprayed often as a pick-me-up to replenish moisture loss in the skin.



Karen Herzog Oxygen Face Cream delivers oxygen, vitamins and minerals which are essential ingredients for healthy, balanced and moisturized skin. It also contains vitamin E which protects against free-radicals, a major cause of pre-mature aging.



Karen Herzog Essential Mask hydrates and heals tired, irritated skin, while promoting circulation with oxygen, vitamins and soothing essential oils.



Terme Hand Cream is a luxurious treatment that rejuvenates hands and nails with wheat germ oil, allantoin, shea butter and mineral rich bromidic water from underground lakes of Salsomaggiore, Italy. This cream is quickly absorbed into the skin, leaving a silky, non-greasy feel.



A creamy, foaming Desquacrem facial cleanser from Sothys of Paris that deep cleans but is mild enough for all skin types.



The deluxe, lightweight travel bag is both modern and functional, featuring plenty of pockets and ample space to store your additional toiletry items.

IPCPR Urges Courtesy, Not Ban, in Raleigh, NC Parks

IPCPR Urges Courtesy, Not Ban, in Raleigh, NC Parks



The Raleigh, North Carolina City Council is considering a ban on smoking in parks or greenways owned or operated by the city but the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association says it has a better idea – post courtesy messages, instead. The matter is expected to come up for a vote at tonight’s meeting.



Raleigh, NC (Vocus/PRWEB) January 18, 2011



The Raleigh, North Carolina City Council is considering a ban on smoking in parks or greenways owned or operated by the city but the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association says it has a better idea – post courtesy messages, instead. The matter is expected to come up for a vote at tonight’s meeting.



“There are so many things wrong with legislated smoking bans,” said Chris McCalla, legislative director of the IPCPR. “Such bans result in job losses, losses in revenue to local, state and federal coffers, and loss of constitutional rights given to citizens by the state and federal governments. Worst of all, claims regarding the alleged negative effects of secondhand smoke – especially in wide open spaces like parks – are more than inaccurate, they are downright misleading.”



McCalla says there is no need to ban smoking in such outdoors areas and, even if it were enacted, there would be virtually no practical way to enforce it.



“The oh-so-brief encounters of random whiffs of smoke will not harm anyone. After all, even the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the United States Department of Labor has established safe levels of secondhand smoke. Some people just don’t like the smell of smoke, but there’s no reason that the rights of smokers should be trumped by a few non-smokers. Besides, a good cigar or pipe usually emits quite an enjoyable odor.”



Some have argued that children are apt to pick up cigarette or cigar butts and put them in their mouths.



“I don’t believe that is a real concern as opposed to a manufactured one. And, even if it were real, there are littering laws that, if enforced, would eliminate that alleged problem,” McCalla said.



McCalla asked, “What if someone complained about the odor of cheap perfume or wet dogs? What if someone complained about seriously obese people taking up more than their share of seating space in the shelters and on buses?



“Imposing a smoking ban in public parks is just one more step on a slippery slope that could lead to even more ridiculous conclusions,” he said.



Instead, McCalla believes posting signs urging smokers to display courtesy to non-smokers with whom they share bus shelters is the civil way to manage the situation.



“This way, everybody wins.”

New Relationship Book Emerges, Offers New Ideas as Myeexpert Expands Into Publishing

New Relationship Book Emerges, Offers New Ideas as Myeexpert Expands Into Publishing



In a strategic re-alignment of its vision, Myeexpert, the leading player in online counselling and crisis intervention, has expanded into publishing of books in the traditional and online (e-book) books formats.



London, UK (PRWeb UK) May 11, 2009



In a strategic re-alignment of its vision, Myeexpert, the leading player in online counselling and crisis intervention, has expanded into publishing of books in the traditional and online (e-book) book formats.



The director and founder of the rapidly expanding online business, Dr Joel Akande, indicated that, to mark the opening of business in publishing, Myeexpert will be releasing its first book on 27 July 2009 under its publishing label of Strategic Insight Publishing.



He explained that, despite the ongoing global credit difficulties, "this is the time for businesses to reach for fresh ideas and to emerge stronger and hence Myeexpert has taken the initiative to inject new thinking and tactics into the business".



The 352-page book which he authored, he said, is titled, "Relationships: Caveat Emptor. What You Should Know and Do Before You Enter Into One… and After."



Dr Akande was asked, while addressing reporters, to provide more information on the up-coming book. He said, "While the title of the book speaks for itself", he pointed out that, "the book covers such diverse areas as marriage, co-habitation, common law relationships, friendships and business relationships in a new way and new thinking".



Taking medical and legal perspectives, Dr Akande who combines the two professions, said "the book deals with such issues as benefits/disadvantages of marriage, consequences of divorce, financial issues, and matters concerning in-laws, adolescents and children relationships".



The main trust is what the readers should know before getting into any relationship and what to do to make the relationship work, viewing it from legal and socio-psychological points.



Other matters that are covered include child abuse, domestic abuse, stalking, and maintenance of relationships, relationship agreements and what individuals must do to avoid painful failure.



He confirmed that the books addressed the vexed issue of why marriages and relationships fail or succeed in both personal and business relationships.



Addressing the Press in London, Dr Akande confirmed that there are other upcoming books and he hinted that Strategic Insight Publishing will be releasing some books in the Fall and Winter of 2009.



The books are on healthy living as well as mutually arousing words which he said is otherwise known as encouragement or inspirational words.



On the usual difficulty of distribution that new publishers encounter, the director of Myeexpert said his company has taken care of this as "the books will be available in main book stores in the USA and the UK, including Borders, Ingram, and Barnes and Noble, as well as globally in hundreds of online stores such as Amazon and Google", he was quoted as saying.



Myeexpert is a unit of Strategic Insight Solutions Ltd that provides business consultancy, medical advice, medical procurement, legal research and counselling, online advisory and crisis support for individuals and families.

Recession-Weary Consumers Turn To 'Little Voice' Mastery Record Demand Stifles Amazon; Leads to Free Book Download



Recession-weary consumer turn to Blair Singer's new book, "Little Voice" Mastery: How to Win the War Between Your Ears in 30 Seconds or Less--and Have an Extraordinary Life! Demand depletes Amazon. com's inventory and back order quotas. Singer makes new book available to the public for free at BlairSinger. com through April 17



Scottsdale, Arizone (PRWEB) April 2, 2009



Blair Singer is a man of his word. He has dedicated his life to improving the quality of life for everyone by removing anything that slows you down, makes you small or inhibits the speed of your spirit. So, when just a few hours after launching his new book, "Little Voice" Mastery: How to Win the War Between Your Ears in 30 Seconds or Less - and Have an Extraordinary Life! last week, demand depleted Amazon. com's inventory and its back order quotas, Singer stepped up. He made his new book available to the public free on BlairSinger. com for the next two weeks.



"No one expected the book to take off like it did. The message is loud and clear--people are tired of being held back. Recession, depression, inflation and stagnation are 'Little Voice' issues that become economic issues if you cannot eliminate them from your brain," Singer explained. "Imagine the frustration when people finally reach out for the solution on Amazon and can't get their hands on the book because of out-dated systems and bureaucracy that got in the way," Singer said.



While it may be unprecedented for an author to give away books, removing the roadblocks and getting the information to people when they're motivated to change their lives and their businesses are what matter most to Singer. He encourages people to visit BlairSinger. com and get the free book download through April 17. "A community of empowered, like-minded people working to boycott the recession is what the world needs most right now," he said.



"This book is about finding that bigger, better person inside you. 'Little Voice' Mastery is simply learning how to quiet that 'Little Voice' between your ears that holds you back, that tells you you're not good enough, or in times like these that the recession is the end of the world. It's the voice that keeps you from being the person you were meant to be and living an abundant life," Singer said.

More



Singer's book is a quick, easy-read that teaches people how to break through self-sabotaging habits, maintain their power in pressure situations, and stop the debilitating chatter in their brains so that they can attract and immediately act on what they want. Singer provides 21-proven "Little Voice" Mastery techniques to re-program your "Little Voice" in 30 seconds. "The path to success isn't that long. Master your "Little Voice" and you're closer than you think," Singer said.



Singer, a personal and professional development expert, has built numerous successful businesses and helped thousands of people turn their lives and their businesses around. He is the co-founder and CEO of SalesPartners Worldwide®, a progressive sales and personal growth training company with 54 franchise locations in 12 countries, author of three best-selling books, and a high-impact teacher and public speaker.

Exeter Hospital Breaks New Campaign "The Art of Wellness"

Exeter Hospital Breaks New Campaign "The Art of Wellness"



Exeter Hospital has introduced a new multi-media campaign positioning its capabilities throughout the Seacoast region of New Hampshire in print, radio and out-of-home executions. Exeter Hospital is an innovative health care organization that has served the community for over 100 years. The new campaign launches the Exeter Hospital brand, and supports key disciplines including The Center for Cardiovascular Specialties, Center for Cancer Care and Orthopaedic Care Center.



BOSTON (PRWEB) December 9, 2006



Exeter Hospital has introduced a new multi-media campaign positioning its capabilities throughout the Seacoast region of New Hampshire in print, radio and out-of-home executions.



Exeter Hospital is an innovative health care organization that has served the community for over 100 years. The new campaign launches the Exeter Hospital brand, and supports key disciplines including The Center for Cardiovascular Specialties, Center for Cancer Care and Orthopaedic Care Center.



Executions juxtapose fine artworks from famous masters along with technological visuals of cutting edge diagnostics, such as CAT scans and MRIs. Each communication features the new tag line, "The Art of Wellness", and emphasizes how each Exeter patient and physician relationship consists of equal parts science and passion to help achieve wellness. "This is important in today's evolving healthcare environment. The consumer today is in far greater control. This means that they want not only excellent medical care but the overall experience they expect from their doctor and associated hospital needs to live up to enhanced expectations of service," states Jeff Winsper, agency principal.



"Too often, health care advertising blends in," says Steve Bautista, chief creative officer of Winsper. "We devised this approach to differentiate the superior services that Exeter Hospital offers the region."



The breaking campaign's first print ad headline, "Restoring the masterpiece of you", features an impressionist painting of a women with inset visual of an X-ray of her hip. The juxtaposition of impressionist art with the diagnostic X-ray graphically calls attention to the marriage of innovative treatment with the "art" of care. Other executions use this approach to solidify the importance of care while promoting key disciplines within the hospital.



In addition to advertising, direct marketing, and sponsorships and POS, Winsper is handling strategic brand architecture and web development.

CHAMPION URGES HOMEOWNERS TO FOCUS ON FINANCES DURING TIMES OF RISING INTEREST RATES

CHAMPION URGES HOMEOWNERS TO FOCUS ON FINANCES DURING TIMES OF RISING INTEREST RATES



(PRWEB) July 16, 2000



Contact: Thomas Woodard



R&J Communications



Twoodard@rj-adv. com



973-331-1070 Ext. 3035



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE



CHAMPION URGES HOMEOWNERS TO FOCUS ON FINANCES DURING TIMES OF RISING INTEREST RATES



FED Stays Put On Interest Rates, But Public Should Beware



Parsippany, NJ, (July 14, 2000) - Despite the Federal Reserve Board's decision to hold steady on interest rates at their recent June meeting, the public should be aware that efforts to slow the U. S. economy has only hit a small road block. Champion Mortgage financial experts believe that interest rates will rise again before the close of the year and warns the public to take a strong look at their financial situation, well in advance of the next FED Open Market Committee meetings on August 22 and October 3.



Based on the Fed's decision to raise interest rates six times since June 1999, a total of 1.75 percentage points to 6.5%, Don Mather of Champion Mortgage suggests that homeowners are in position to be strongly affected by the progression of rising interest rates and the possibility of falling into deeper debt. The increased rates push up everything from credit cards to auto loans. Mather claims that many fail to pay attention to credit card interest rates and accrue large amounts of debt due to interest charges. "The rising rates take time to hit consumers and they should prepare now for when it does push the wallet," Mather states.



In the coming weeks and months, the FED will be weighing conditions that may generate heightened inflation pressures in the near future, and now is an opportune time to plan for your financial future. "Re-financing homes, credit debt consolidation and home improvements are very common procedures in today's prospering economy," continued Mather. "The average cost of homes in metropolitan communities is rising along with interest rates and many homeowners have substantial equity built up in their home. With the rising interest rates of today, home equity loans can provide for solid financial footing for homeowners."



As rising interest rates are working to slow the economy, the public has an opportunity to explore the advantages of consolidating finances in home equity loans. Some benefits include:



· Consolidate debt



· Reduce the overall size and number of monthly payments



· Reduce interest paid to credit cards



· Gain tax deductions on loan interest (credit card interest is NOT tax deductible)



· Eliminate or reduce long-running credit card debt



· Quickly gain the capital for:



· Home improvements



· College tuition and expenses

According to Mather, "the interest rates have leveled off for the first time in a year, but the FED will keep a close eye on the spending practices of the American economy over the next few months. The public must be aware and prepare for their financial future to escape from the dangers of increasing debt."

Management Recruiters OF Tampa North Places in Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 2006 Best Places to Work

Management Recruiters OF Tampa North Places in Tampa Bay Business Journal’s 2006 Best Places to Work



Tampa Bay Business Journal has named Management Recruiters of Tampa North one of the Best Places to Work in Tampa Bay. The award recognizes the company’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of benefits, working conditions and company culture.



Tampa, FL (PRWEB) March 23, 2006



Tampa based Management Recruiters of Tampa North was one of 124 companies nominated as a Best Place to Work and made the winning list of 48 based on the strength of its benefits, programs and employee evaluations.



“Executive search is a difficult business filled with rejection. I believe in providing a supportive environment focused on TEAM success and mutual respect. We have fun, but, we work hard, so, it’s OK to play hard,” said Gary King, President. “We entered the award programs,” said Carol Taylor, Director of Operations, “because we think our culture is unique in many ways, and the employees’ response proves it. Management Recruiters of Tampa North is very proud of its employees, and we’re proud to be a winner of this award.”



“Employees are proud to work for companies that are about more than business,” said Alexis Muellner, Tampa Bay Business Journal editor. “And, the results show how creating the right work environment can create powerful business advantages.”



The Best Places to Work companies are profiled in a special publication of the Tampa Bay Business Journal issued April 14th, and will be entitled to use the 2006 seal in public relations outreach and advertising campaigns.



The Tampa Bay Business Journal launched the nomination process for the Best Places to Work in January and the word spread quickly through direct mailings, e-mailings, phone calls, events, as well as advertisements in the paper and on the website. The celebration luncheon, which is open to anyone who would like to attend, will be held on April 13th and will recognize Management Recruiters of Tampa North along with the other Best Places to Work.



Companies were evaluated on two kinds of information collected. Each completed an overall questionnaire about retirement plans, health insurance, profit sharing or stock options, performance-based reviews, employee training, paternity leave, and perks such as parking, child care, subsidized transportation or tuition reimbursement.



Employees then responded to questionnaires, addressing pride in the company; whether and how the company encourages, supports and recognizes achievement; open communication; whether compensation is fair; and relationships with co-workers and immediate supervisors. They were also asked to describe their favorite or least favorite things about the company, and comment further if desired.



The results were analyzed and scored by assigning points to each question, and weighing them according to emphasis on creativity, flexibility and collegiality.



Common themes among the top companies focused on work-life balance; respect and caring for employees; recognition of accomplishments; feeling empowered; good teamwork and team spirit; and commitment to community service.



“The best places to work are companies that don’t cut back their commitment to employees in a down economy, while asking them to work harder and smarter,” said TBBJ publisher Arthur Porter. “They recognize employees as their best asset, instrumental in maintaining the quality and reputation for services and products. It’s a smart, and winning, business strategy.”



“We work at being open and innovative,” said Gary King, President “and we’re proud to be recognized by the Tampa Bay Business Journal for our efforts, and are honored and excited to be named one of the 2006 Best Places to Work in Tampa Bay.”

New Renewably-Sourced Polymer Debuts in Radiator End Tank Program, Jointly Developed With DuPont Engineering Polymers, DENSO

New Renewably-Sourced Polymer Debuts in Radiator End Tank Program, Jointly Developed With DuPont Engineering Polymers, DENSO



The plant-derived DuPont™ Zytel® 610 nylon resin that debuts on a new automotive radiator end tank from DENSO Corp. illustrates the benefits of close collaboration throughout the value chain and marks the first use of DuPont renewably sourced plastic in mechanical components exposed to the hot, chemically aggressive underhood environment.



Nagoya, Japan (Vocus) March 9, 2009 -–



The plant-derived DuPont™ Zytel® 610 nylon resin that debuts on a new automotive radiator end tank from DENSO Corp. illustrates the benefits of close collaboration throughout the value chain and marks the first use of DuPont renewably sourced plastic in mechanical components exposed to the hot, chemically aggressive underhood environment.



“The strategy of collaborating throughout the value chain is critical when cost effectively bringing high-value solutions to the market,” said Chris Murphy, global accounts director – DuPont Engineering Polymers. “This development truly illustrates a great way to get from today to tomorrow.”



In this case, DENSO engineering and DuPont R&D embarked on development of a new material for use in a higher performance radiator end tank that meets auto manufacturers’ needs for sustainable solutions. The new material, developed jointly by DENSO and DuPont in a proprietary process, contains 40 percent renewable content by weight derived from the castor bean plant, and meets requirements for exceptional heat resistance, durability and road salt resistance – attributes DENSO says were difficult to deliver with many resins containing a high percentage of plant-derived ingredients.



Production of the part for the global vehicle market begins this spring and DENSO has announced intentions to use the material in a wide range of products to reduce use of limited oil resources and reduce CO2 emissions in its processes to help prevent global warming.



“Today’s business climate – with demands for innovation in the face of intense cost pressures – is driving the engineering community to rethink the design and manufacture of automotive components and systems,” said Patrick Ferronato, global director, development and marketing -- DuPont Automotive Performance Materials. “It’s challenging us all to use design and engineering strengths to the fullest and to drive ‘engineering strategy’ beyond procurement price – at the end of the day, we must be cost-neutral at best, and collaboration for innovation is our best strategy to deliver economically and environmentally sustainable solutions.”



Shared goals, objectives and clear timelines were essential elements in this program, according to Masatoshi Ikeda, global account manager of Denso Group, DuPont Engineering Polymers. “DENSO and DuPont share a commitment to delivering innovation that not only improves our environmental footprint, but also delivers benefits through improved performance, cost control and sustainability.”



DuPont has introduced a number of renewably sourced products that are made, in whole or in part, from renewable agricultural feedstocks such as corn, soybeans, castor beans, sugar cane and wheat, rather than petroleum to help industry reduce dependence on depleteable petroleum-based products. Among the nine high-performance product families are: DuPont™ Sorona® polymer, DuPont™ Sorona® EP thermoplastic polymer, DuPont™ Hytrel® RS thermoplastic elastomer and DuPont™ Zytel® long chain polyamides.



DuPont Automotive offers more than 100 products to the global automotive industry and through its global application development network is committed to delivering cost-effective solutions to help reduce vehicle weight for better fuel economy and CO2 emission reductions, to integrate part functionality to simplify assembly and eliminate cost; and help bring invention to market fast, better and more cost-effectively.



DuPont is a science-based products and services company. Founded in 1802, DuPont puts science to work by creating sustainable solutions essential to a better, safer, healthier life for people everywhere. Operating in more than 70 countries, DuPont offers a wide range of innovative products and services for markets including agriculture and food; building and construction; communications; and transportation.

Baxa to Feature ValiMed Medication Validation System at Interphex 2006

Baxa to Feature ValiMed Medication Validation System at Interphex 2006



Baxa Corporation features the innovative ValiMed System technology for rapid validation of high-risk medications at the Interphex 2006 trade show March 20-23, 2006, at Booth # C302. This new system provides the only effective means for preventing med errors, detecting narcotic abuse and ensuring the quality of batch compounds.



Englewood, CO (PRWEB) March 20, 2006



Englewood, Colo. March 20, 2006 – Baxa Corporation will feature its new ValiMed Medication Validation System at the upcoming Interphex meeting at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City (http://interphex. com (http://interphex. com)). Over the course of the three-day meeting, Baxa representatives will demonstrate how this unique technology prevents medication errors by validating drugs and concentrations, detecting counterfeit products for brand protection, and providing quality assurance for compounded products. The ValiMed System also is used for prevention and detection of narcotic diversion.



The ValiMed System provides clinicians a simple, cost-effective tool for ensuring medication safety. Its patent-pending technology identifies drug strength in real time, validating compounded doses of high-risk medications prior to dispensing. “The ValiMed Solution fits with Baxa Corporation's mission to improve pharmacy operations and increase the safety of admixture and administration activities,” notes Product Manager Mark Thrasher. “ValiMed complements our existing automation, admixture and drug delivery products well.”



According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), between 8% and 12% of healthcare workers have chemical dependencies. Healthcare professionals may be at increased risk of prescription drug abuse because of their easy access to medications, including controlled substances. Using the ValiMed Technology, pharmacy directors and other managers can detect narcotic loss and prevent on-the-job impairment, which can compromise patient care.



Pharmacists and other healthcare professionals continue to explore new uses for the medication validation offered by the ValiMed System. The system has applications for clinical trial validation and quality control, as well. The future of healthcare safety will be demonstrated at booth no. C302 during the Interphex exhibit hours.



For more than 30 years, Baxa Corporation has focused on developing systems and devices that streamline pharmacy operations, enhancing patient safety and improving efficiency. Under an agreement announced in early November, Baxa is the exclusive distributor of the CDEX ValiMed System for healthcare organizations in the United States and Canada.
