Ayhan’s Introduces “NO COOK DIET” Recipes© to Make the Mediterranean Diet Fast and Fun

Ayhan’s Introduces “NO COOK DIET” Recipes© to Make the Mediterranean Diet Fast and Fun



Ayhan’s Mediterranean restaurant recipes are portion controlled for weight loss and analyzed for nutritional content by Debra Grossano, a well-known New York dietitian.



Port Washington, NY (PRWEB) July 28, 2006



Ayhan's Mediterranean Menu Plans® has taken the lead in innovative diet programs with the introduction of the new “NO COOK “Diet Recipes© available at AyhansMarketplace. com (http://www. ayhansmarketplace. com/diet/nocook. aspx? cid=PR-ayhan-july-06-NoCook1). “These free recipes are designed to introduce everyone to the healthy Mediterranean Diet,’ stated Ayhan, ’and we hope that people will see that they can lose weight with fast and delicious meals and without complications. The South Beach® diet is partially adapted from The Mediterranean Diet. Our recipes are authentic and are based on my 35 years of serving real Mediterranean recipes to many thousands of guests."



Ayhan, the founder of the Ayhan’s Mediterranean Menu Plans®, came from Cyprus in 1972 and operates the leading Mediterranean restaurant group in New York. The Mediterranean Diet has been hailed as “the healthiest diet ever,” and studies have shown it to be more effective and long lasting than low fat diets or low carb diets. Ayhan’s Mediterranean restaurant recipes are portion controlled for weight loss and analyzed for nutritional content by Debra Grossano, a well-known New York dietitian.



Ayhan’s Menu Plans® and the South Beach Diet© have many similarities. Both have restaurant quality recipes, highlight healthy fats, are available online and provide access to a nutritionist. However, Ayhan’s Mediterranean Diet has several important advantages (http://www. ayhansmarketplace. com/diet/ayhansvssouthbeach. aspx? cid=PR-ayhan-July-06-SB) over the South Beach Diet©:



 Ayhan’s Mediterranean Menu Plans® has no phases that require the body to adapt to artificial restrictions. Ayhan’s diet is designed to provide balanced nutrition from Day 1 and does not deprive the body of essential nutrients just to reach short-term weight loss goals. Notably, The South Beach Diet phase 1 is basically a low carb program and does not allow certain fruits and vegetables, such as, carrots, banana, and watermelon. This unbalanced approach deprives dieters from valuable sources of nutrition and can disturb body equilibrium. Moreover, Ayhan’s diet is high in fiber, while the South Beach Diet © restricts fiber intake during the initial phase.



 Ayhan’s Mediterranean Menu Plans® includes enjoying wine while the South Beach Diet© restricts alcohol during its first phase.



 Ayhan’s provides the convenience of being able to order all-natural diet food online at ayhansmarketplace. com (http://www. ayhansmarketplace. com? cid=PR-ayhan-July-06-homepage) and having it delivered.



 Ayhan’s recipes are easy and many take only 5 minutes to prepare, while the South Beach Diet © recipes can be complex and time consuming.



 The proven health benefits of the Mediterranean diet have been studied over many years (http://www. ayhansmarketplace. com/diet/health. aspx? cid=PR-ayhan-july-06-health). They have shown marked effects in increasing longevity and limiting the risk of many debilitating diseases. The Mediterranean Diet has been shown to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, ALS, Breast Cancer, Diabetes, Metabolic Syndrome and many other illnesses. Ayhan’s Mediterranean Menu Plans® provides a weight loss plan based on authentic Mediterranean cuisine. The South Beach Diet© is a recent adaptation that includes phases that are alien from the Mediterranean way of eating and have no clinical studies to support health claims.



Ayhan’s Mediterranean Menu Plans® also provides a healthy “Anti-Aging “lifestyle plan that helps control weight and maintain energy after the weight loss goal has been reached.



About Ayhan: Ayhan operates the leading Mediterranean restaurant group in New York and developed the award winning recipes presented at amdiets. com (http://www. ayhansmarketplace. com/diet/nocook. aspx? cid=PR-ayhan-july-06-NoCook2).



About Debra Grossano: Debra is a well-known nutritionist with a private practice in Manhattan.

Arnold & Itkin LLP Files Lawsuit On Behalf Of Maritime Worker Injured in Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig Explosion

Arnold & Itkin LLP Files Lawsuit On Behalf Of Maritime Worker Injured in Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig Explosion



Houston law firm says lawsuit sends strong message that health and safety of offshore workers must be safeguarded by employers.



Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 5, 2010



Arnold & Itkin LLP has filed a lawsuit against Transocean Deepwater Drilling, Inc. and BP on behalf of an offshore worker injured in the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.



The lawsuit filed in Galveston County Court in Texas on April 29 (Case # 62,738, Joshua Kritzer v. Transocean et al) alleges that seaman Joshua Kritzer suffered serious injuries when he was thrown 25 to 30 feet down a hall and knocked unconscious during the April 20 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon.



After regaining consciousness and frantically removing debris that had fallen on him, Kritzer escaped the burning rig by climbing over a collapsed wall to a life raft, the lawsuit alleges.



The lawsuit asserts a Jones Act claim alleging the Deepwater Horizon was unseaworthy and the defendants were grossly negligent in operating the vessel with inadequate crew, failing to maintain it and failing to properly supervise the crew.



The Jones Act is a federal law that gives injured seamen the legal right to sue maritime employers in cases of negligence and unseaworthiness.



“This lawsuit sends a strong message that the health and safety of offshore workers must be safeguarded by employers,” said Kurt Arnold (http://www. arnolditkin. com/attorney-profiles/kurt-arnold-lawyer. php), a partner in Arnold & Itkin LLP (http://www. jones-act-maritime-lawyer. com/index. php), who filed the lawsuit.



Kritzer was among more than a dozen crew members injured in the explosion. Eleven crew died in the blast before the massive oil rig eventually sank into the Gulf of Mexico. The Deepwater Horizon was owned by Transocean, a Swiss company, and leased to BP, which was drilling about 50 miles off the coast of Louisiana.



As a result of the explosion, Kritzer, a resident of Louisiana, sustained a closed head injury along with injuries to his ankle and hip, resulting in physical pain and mental anguish, the lawsuit alleges. The lawsuit demands the defendants pay Kritzer’s past and future medical expenses and support under the general maritime law benefits of maintenance and cure. It also alleges he has sustained a loss of future earning capacity.



“We take very seriously the legal rights afforded maritime workers under the Jones Act and the principles of general maritime law,” said Jason Itkin (http://www. arnolditkin. com/attorney-profiles/houston-attorney-jason-itkin. php), a partner in Arnold & Itkin, which concentrates on maritime and admiralty law. “We want to make sure employers respect and adhere to those rights.”



In addition to Transocean, the lawsuit names as defendants BP Exploration and Production, Inc., BP, PLLC; BP Products North America Inc., and BP Corporation North America Inc.



About Arnold & Itkin LLP



The lawyers at Arnold & Itkin LLP, a personal injury law firm based in Houston, Texas, understand the complexities and legalities of maritime law (http://gulfcoastmaritime. com/) and have a successful track record of verdicts and settlements in favor of maritime workers. The firm provides legal guidance on all aspects of maritime law and the benefits offshore workers are entitled to under the Jones Act (http://www. jones-act-maritime-lawyer. com/jones-act/jones-act-help. php), the Death on the High Seas Act, the principle of maintenance and cure, or the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.



The firm handles maritime claims at port cities along the Gulf Coast in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. The firm can be contacted toll free at (866) 222-2606 or online through the firm's website (http://www. jones-act-maritime-lawyer. com/index. php).

§ Our Road to Recovery



Learn how to recognize your "red light" stress zones and keep yourself at the "green level" of life where you are at peace and calm. Susan will share 10 strategies that helped her family not just cope but achieve wellness and live life to its fullest.



§ My Gift to Others: What I’ve Learned from Mental Illness



In this informal interview with Matt Mikolic, 18. You will hear him tell you about his feelings of depression, suicide, isolation and his difficulties in school and at home.



By educators learning how to set up specific teaching curriculum strategies and techniques, students are less likely to miss school due to increasing illness brought on by stress. When school staff understands the child’s illness and can assist in keeping the stress in the child’s life to a minimum, the severity of the child’s illness can be best managed, the child can attend school regularly, experience success, gain self-confidence, learn, and graduate!



Mikolic, who is a mother of two boys diagnosed with bipolar disorder, has travelled the journey and seen them succeed. Mikolic currently serves on the Ohio Department of Education’s State Advisory Panel for Exceptional Children (SAPEC), a federally mandated advisory body to the Ohio Department of Education. She is active in many organizations and has spoken to groups such as the Ohio Department of Health, American School Health Association, John Carroll University, and many more.

Machinists Express Serious Safety Concerns at House Aviation Hearing

Machinists Express Serious Safety Concerns at House Aviation Hearing



IAM Transportation Vice President Robert Roach, Jr. called for "more, not less" government oversight of the airline industry as carriers compete aggressively to reduce costs.



Washington, D. C. (PRWEB) March 22, 2007



International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM) General Vice President Robert Roach, Jr. today testified before the Aviation Sub-Committee of the U. S. House of Representatives' Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure on the subject of Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) operational and safety programs.



"Since 9-11, airline workers have sacrificed their wages, pensions, work rules and thousands of jobs in order to rescue the airline industry," said Roach. "Industry conditions have imposed great burdens on workers as carriers compete to reduce costs. Such an extraordinary focus on the bottom line demands more, not less, government oversight."



Roach urged the Committee to resolve jurisdictional conflicts between the National Mediation Board and the National Labor Relations Board; address Flight Attendant fatigue and self-defense training issues and correct lax enforcement of workplace health and safety regulations. Roach also called for improved oversight of overseas aircraft repair stations and urged lawmakers to reject proposals to allow increased foreign ownership and control of U. S. airlines.



The IAM is the largest airline union in North America, representing more than 100,000 airline employees in almost every classification, including Flight Attendant, Mechanic & Related, Fleet Service, Customer Service and Reservation Agents. The IAM's complete testimony is available at www. goiam. org.

Northampton Citizens Appeal Adult Store Approval in Land Court

Northampton Citizens Appeal Adult Store Approval in Land Court



Michael A. Kirby and Lucille J. Stone, long-time residents of Northampton, have appealed the approval of plans to build a Capital Video store just steps from their home. Capital Video, which operates a large national chain of adult stores, plans to sell hard-core pornographic magazines and videos. The appeal, filed on January 8 with the Massachusetts Land Court, asks the court to require Capital Video to prepare plans that conform to Northampton's Zoning Ordinance and address the concerns of the community.



Northampton, MA (PRWEB) January 11, 2007



Michael A. Kirby and Lucille J. Stone, long-time residents of Northampton, have appealed the Northampton Planning Board's approval of Capital Video's plans to build an adult retail store at 135 King Street in Northampton. Capital Video, based in Cranston, RI, is a large national chain of adult stores owned by Kenneth Guarino. The appeal was filed with the Massachusetts Land Court on January 8, 2007. The case number is 07MISC336907. The named defendants are the members of the Planning Board and Capital Video.



Northampton (population 29,000) is the home of Smith College, the nation's largest liberal arts college for women. The city is famous for its pedestrian-friendly historic downtown, which is located less than half a mile from the proposed adult store.



Kirby and Stone live within 300 feet of 135 King Street. The front of the adult store will be plainly visible from the front porch of their home, which they have lived in for 25 years.



The goal of the couple's appeal is not to prevent any kind of adult store from opening at 135 King, but for Capital Video to prepare a site plan that conforms to Northampton's Zoning Ordinance and addresses the concerns of the community. Among other things, Northampton's Zoning Ordinance forbids signs that depict sexual conduct or sexual excitement.



Immediately after the Planning Board rendered its 4-3 approval of Capital Video's plans on December 14, dissenting board member Kenneth Jodrie called Capital Video's submission "one of the poorest I've seen in a long time, both in terms of the quality of the drawings and making no effort to meet the requirements of what the town has been talking about for the last three months."



To keep costs reasonable, Kirby and Stone have filed their appeal pro se. They have not engaged a lawyer to represent them at this time, nor is NoPornNorthampton formally involved with their appeal. NoPornNorthampton is a group of Northampton citizens who organized in mid-2006 to raise awareness about porn and who have been critical of Capital Video's efforts to locate a hard-core pornography shop in the midst of homes, churches, counseling centers and a school of dance.



On December 20, NoPornNorthampton issued an open letter to Capital Video attorney Michael Pill, inviting him to dialogue with the community about the deficiencies in Capital Video's plans. These deficiencies include adherence to a non-qualifying "Victoria's Secret standard" for signage, failure to demonstrate safe pedestrian and vehicular flows in and around the site, and failure to address public health and safety issues around the site. Other Capital Video stores, for example, have experienced problems with hazardous trash, such as that seen in Kittery, ME (http://nopornnorthampton. org/2006/07/02/what-kittery-found-at-the-porn-shop. aspx) and Meriden, CT (http://nopornnorthampton. org/2006/07/17/what-lies-behind-capital-videos-meriden-porn-shop. aspx).



Issues with Capital Video's plans that are debatable, such as whether to fence off their parking lot from a bike trail that will run behind it, should receive input from professionals such as the Northampton police.



Despite Capital Video's posture of openness at their December 14 Planning Board hearing and in an earlier letter to city officials, no response has been received to date to NoPornNorthampton's letter. Kirby and Stone acted to stand up for the quality of their neighborhood and filed their appeal before the close of the 20-day appeal period.



It is hoped that Capital Video will now devote their energies to improve their site plan and "provide a comfortable environment to all" (their stated goal) rather than attempt to exhaust and outspend the community with legal machinations.

A Recent Study Highlighted these Benefits and the Policy Store and Unicare Health and Life Insurance Want You to Know the Results a Happy Marriage Can Bring

A Recent Study Highlighted these Benefits and the Policy Store and Unicare Health and Life Insurance Want You to Know the Results a Happy Marriage Can Bring.



It is a fact that Happy and Highly Satisfying Marriages show a significant health advantage when compared with unhappy marriages, which includes lower levels of biological and lifestyle cardiovascular risk factors such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, body mass index, and lower levels of psychosocial cardiovascular risk factors such as depression, anxiety, and anger.



(PRWEB) December 23, 2004



Researchers Wendy Troxel and psychologist Karen Matthews, at the University of Pittsburgh found that a happy marriage might help protect women from strokes and heart attacks. Marriage can also add health benefits by providing social support and making health-promoting behaviors easier to accomplish.



National Center for Health Statistics study now shows that 85% of Americans still get married despite the odds that show the current divorce rate at 50% . NCHS finds that Americans value a happy marriage and family above all else. If given the proper time, effort, and commitment, your marriage can be a relationship that will grow with you and remain a part of your life for decades.



According to the National Mental Health Association, there are many reasons that we get married. Ideally, our need for happiness and personal satisfaction can be met through this bonding relationship, which satisfies both emotional and physical needs. You must be able to provide each other with companionship, affection, and conversation. You have to learn about areas of conflict in your marriage and ways to resolve them. Every day living and things like money matters, health, automobile, children, and childrenÂ’s health are things that affect our relationships and we have to be aware that they can make or break the connection to each other.

Increasing volume of legislation on Food Contamination requires careful examination

Increasing volume of legislation on Food Contamination requires careful examination.



For the protection of public health, it is essential to ensure that contaminant levels are kept at acceptable levels from a toxicological point of view and as a result there is an ever-increasing volume of legislation on the subject.



(PRWEB) February 4, 2004



Research and Markets announces the addition of this report entitled "Contaminants in Foodstuffs " to its offerings.



Food products can be contaminated by various causes and processes throughout the food chain from production to consumption. This generally has a negative effect on the quality of the foodstuff and may imply a health risk. For the protection of public health, it is therefore essential to ensure that contaminant levels are kept at acceptable levels from a toxicological point of view. As a result there is an ever-increasing volume of legislation on the subject, which in turn affects the manufacture of food products and their position in the international market.



This report provides details on this, legislation explainig how contaminants are regulated and also providing the maximum levels for contaminants in foods set out in tabulated format.

Revolution Health Provides Top Ten Memorial Day Tips - With A Twist

Revolution Health Provides Top Ten Memorial Day Tips - With A Twist



Dr. Bradly Jacobs offers his expert advice.



Washington (PRWEB) May 25, 2007



With Memorial Day marking the unofficial start of summer this weekend, RevolutionHealth. com's (http://www. revolutionhealth. com (http://www. revolutionhealth. com)) Dr. Bradly Jacobs, a recognized national leader in Integrative Medicine and Health & Wellness, offers his top 10 tips - with a twist - for staying healthy and safe this holiday weekend.



"While most everyone knows to lather up on sunscreen before going outdoors this weekend and the big "don't" of drinking and driving, there are some additional easy steps to take to make sure your holiday is healthy and pain-free," said Dr. Brad.



1. Get Spicy to Stay Cool. Eat spicy foods to help you stay cool. Believe it or not, spicy foods dilate your peripheral blood vessels, making you perspire which cools your body.

2. A Coat in Summertime. Coat both meats and the grill with olive oil to ensure great flavor, but avoid potential carcinogens. Many of us like the flavor of meats with a bit of char (blackening), but research has shown this method can create cancer-causing substances called heterocyclic amines.

3. The Secret is in the Marinade recipe (http://www. revolutionhealth. com/healthy-living/food-nutrition/kitchen/stock-shelves/pantry-staples/grilling-marinate-peaches-asparagus-halibut). Choose leaner meats and marinate them for 24 hours to enjoy flavor without all the fat this Memorial Day. Fatty meats make for tasty barbequing, but you can use leaner, healthier meats and make them more tender and enjoy even more flavor by marinating them.

4. Scream for Ice Cream. Substitute grilled fruit (http://www. revolutionhealth. com/healthy-living/food-nutrition/kitchen/get-cooking/cooking-techniques-grilling? section=section_03) for fat-laden ice cream or cake this Memorial Day. The dry heat of grilling intensifies and caramelizes the natural sugars in fruits. For more ideas on healthy summer desserts, like cantaloupe kabobs.

5. Chill Out. If you're planning a picnic this weekend, keep food fresher and prevent bacteria by using large chunks rather than small cubes. Large chunks of ice last longer and keep foods colder. Just put some water into a sheet cake or baking pan, freeze it and poof!, you have bacteria-fighting ice!

6. A Bug's Life. Try natural alternatives (http://www. revolutionhealth. com/articles/?id=10540) to beat those pesty mosquitoes. You can spray on a diluted liquid garlic concentrate. Or apply vinegar or soybean oil on your skin to prevent the bugs from biting.

7. Headache Relief in a Glass. In these hot summer months, drink a glass of water to relieve headaches. Often headaches are caused by dehydration and can be alleviated by taking aspirin, but it's usually the beverage consumed when taking the aspirin that helps to immediately relieve the symptoms.

8. Get Red-dy to Ward off Sunburn. In addition to sunscreen (http://www. revolutionhealth. com/healthy-living/food-nutrition/healing-foods/foods-healthy-skin/skin-cancer), load up on red, yellow and orange fruits and vegetables. These have carotenoids that may help naturally reduce sunburn risk. Sunburn is a major risk factor for skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in the U. S.

9. Pool's Open. Fill up empty water bottles and use them for resistance exercises in the pool. It's a fun and easy way to tone and strengthen muscles.

10. Time for Lights Out. Pull out your alarm clock this long weekend. You may be tempted to stay up late, but keeping a regular schedule will actually help you sleep better and make your sleep more restful and restorative.



"Plan ahead to enjoy a safe, fun and healthy Memorial Day weekend with family and friends," said Dr. Brad. "Practicing smart grilling, staying safe in the sun and drinking plenty of fluids can help you make the most of your holiday weekend."



Dr. Bradly Jacobs is recognized as a national leader in Integrative Medicine and Health & Wellness. He was the founding Medical Director of the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) where he was also the Chair of Integrative Medicine and Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine. Dr. Jacobs is a graduate of Stanford University School of Medicine, and completed his residency and clinical research fellowship at the University of California San Francisco. He holds a master's degree of Public Health in Epidemiology and Biostatistics from University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Jacobs is board certified in Internal Medicine and has studied acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, yoga and martial arts. At Revolution Health, Dr. Jacobs heads the integrative medicine arena.

In my 30s I was a Health Educator; in my 40's I began to teach and perform Sacred Sensual Dance; now in my 50's, I am launching The Sacred Courtesan School of Feminine Mystique & Power. I receive many more compliments and enticing offers from men today than I ever did in her 20's. My motto is 'The riper the berry, the sweeter the juice'." Francesca Gentille is available to the news media for interviews by calling 510-759-3839. Her website is http://www. LifeDanceCenter. com (http://www. LifeDanceCenter. com).

World-Class Triathlete Trains at Starr Pass

World-Class Triathlete Trains at Starr Pass



Tucson Resort offers five-star facilities and desert training environment



Tucson, AZ (Vocus) August 13, 2009



Serious athletes need serious training facilities. With its unique terrain, unmatched climate, and indoor and outdoor training facilities, Tucson is an athlete's paradise. Many top athletes train or have trained in Tucson - among them, Leanda Cave, world-class triathlete. Leanda lives and trains in Tucson's Starr Pass community and combines the best of both worlds - training and recreation.



Triathlon is one of the most demanding disciplines in sports. It is a primarily outdoors multi-sport endurance event consisting of swimming, cycling, and running in immediate succession over various distances. This is why Tucson is so ideal for competitive training, as it is home to huge cycling, swimming and running communities.



For Leanda and Partner/Coach Torsten Abel, Starr Pass Tucson was love at first sight. After attending a training camp in Tucson several years ago, she was blown away. The ease of training in Tucson was unreal.



"The community around JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa offered absolutely everything I could possibly want," said Leanda. "Scenery, hills, trails, great weather, top-of-the-line fitness facilities, training partners, resort-style amenities and more. They are all in the palm of my hand."



JW Marriott Starr Pass Resort & Spa's Hashani Spa has become Leanda's second home. As a member of the Hashani Spa, she has found it an ideal match for her stringent athletic training requirements. "Having access to a top-notch fitness center, pool, trails, and recovery services like massage, steam rooms, sauna and whirlpool means my entire training regimen can all be accomplished within Starr Pass and Hashani Spa," noted Leanda.



The fitness center at Hashani Spa has all the equipment needed for a complete workout. Leanda's typical gym workout includes time on the treadmill, stretching, core strength exercises and weight training.



Although in stellar shape, Leanda still succumbs to muscle fatigue due to her rigorous training schedule. As a treatment for this, she has taken advantage of Hashani Spa's massage services and notes it has had "an extreme therapeutic impact" on her body. "Hashani Spa and its staff have helped make me a better athlete."



According to Torsten, triathlon ranks very high among the healthiest and most balanced sports. Triathletes must train their entire bodies. The stringent training required allows Leanda to enjoy a great balance in life, and especially allows her to savor great food.



"As athletes, Torsten and I value high quality food. The same can be said of Starr Pass Resort. Their commitment to sustainable and organic food is fantastic. It is impossible not to eat well there," said Leanda. One of her favorite spots is the resort's Primo restaurant, as the food is always at its peak of freshness.



Leanda is next heading to Hawaii in October to the Kona Ironman (Ironman Hawaii World Championship) one of the biggest triathlons of the year.



On May 17, 2009, Leanda took 1st in the Ironman 70.3 Florida, beating the previous record time by over four minutes. She took first place three times in 2008, and four in 2007. She also holds two world championship titles for 2002 and 2007.

Alcohol and Drug Addiction Costs Nearly Equal to the Federal Budget Deficit

Alcohol and Drug Addiction Costs Nearly Equal to the Federal Budget Deficit



The multi-billion dollar industry of legal and illegal drugs leaves much more in its wake



(PRWEB) May 31, 2005



Dr. Nora Volkow is the director of the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) under the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services. She recently stated that the total cost of alcohol and drug addiction to society was estimated at $500 billion, which is more than the gross domestic product of over 200 countries in the world.



The overall costs to society include categories such as emergency medial care, crime, corrections, law enforcement, lost productivity, research, treatment and prevention.



A publication from the Office of National Drug Control Policy examining costs of drug abuse from 1992 to 2002 stated that one of the largest percentages of increase in spending was for treatment research. The amount of money allocated more than doubled in a ten year period. Much of the research in the last decade has been focused on the areas of co-occurring disorders and other brain chemical theories, yet the problem seems to have gotten worse in many areas.



Treatment practices have included more replacement drugs and other pharmaceuticals including methadone, anti-anxiety medication, antidepressants and anti-psychotic drugs, all of which have their own set of side-effects and donÂ’t fit the definition of rehabilitation. Meanwhile, prescription drug costs continue to soar as well as revenues for the pharmaceutical companies.



In recent years there has been more of a movement to focus efforts on programs that get results. This includes effective prevention and rehabilitation programs in communities to eliminate drug abuse as well as treatment in the correctional system for drug abusing offenders to reduce recidivism.



As one of the nationÂ’s largest and most successful drug rehabilitation and education programs, Narconon Arrowhead continues to grow and create positive effects. Whether itÂ’s educating young and old alike throughout the country with massive awareness and prevention campaigns, working with officials in the U. S. and other countries or helping individuals and families overcome addiction, Narconon Arrowhead continues to impact millions of lives every year.



Narconon Arrowhead uses the drug-free rehabilitation methodology developed by American author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard. The residential treatment center serves people from all over the country and is certified by the state department of mental health and substance abuse services and is also accredited by the prestigious Rehabilitation Accreditation Commission (CARF). The program is in high demand simply because it gets results.



With effective programs like Narconon Arrowhead, the cost of alcohol and drug addiction can significantly be reduced in America. For more information or to get help, contact Narconon Arrowhead today by calling 1-800-468-6933 or visit www. stopaddiction. com for your free assessment and consultation.

MedSouth Joins Averde's Network in Denver, CO

MedSouth Joins Averde's Network in Denver, CO



MedSouth, a large Independent Practice Association (IPA) in Metro Denver is the latest physician group to join Averde Health's fight against rising healthcare costs.



Denver, CO and West Hartford, CT (PRWEB) March 10, 2010



Averde Health, an innovative healthplan expanding rapidly in Colorado and Texas, announced that MedSouth has joined their guaranteed payment PPO network. MedSouth, a clinically integrated, independent practice association located in the south metropolitan area of Denver is comprised of 164 providers representing both primary and specialty care.



Averde focuses on offering high deductible medical plans to individuals and groups, making them very affordable by driving inefficiencies out of the system. Averde pays doctors and hospitals 100% of their contracted rate up front - including the patient portion - and then collects from patients so doctors don't have to. Many providers have given Averde very competitive rates in exchange for removing them from the collections process.



"We are excited to have MedSouth join our network," said Averde's CEO, Tom Policelli. "MedSouth shares our vision of offering high quality, cost-effective healthcare to our members". Ellen Burkett, MD, Medical Director for MedSouth agreed. "We look forward to joining the Averde Health network and addressing the rising problem we are seeing among our patients of growing bad debt and collections costs".



Averde's rapid expansion in Denver and Texas is spilling over to many other markets across the country. Averde is on pace to be in 20 markets in the next 18 months. "Physician recruiting is in full swing", said Policelli. "Our value proposition has been really resonating with doctors and hospitals and our networks are delivering terrific value to our customers. We are also pleased to see that employers are finding our product to be very compelling."



About MedSouth - MedSouth is a multi-specialty independent practice association located in the south metropolitan area of Denver, Colorado that provides quality and cost-effective care for its patients. In 2003 MedSouth was one of the first IPAs in the country to receive a green light from the Federal Trade Commission to move forward with contracting under a clinically integrated IPA structure. Their group of 164 clinically integrated providers represents both primary care and specialty care physicians.



About Averde Health - Averde Health was founded by visionary health insurance executives who recognized the need for a better health care model that puts them in partnership with doctors and hospitals, while allowing patients a simple way to manage their health care expenses. By solving problems for health care providers, Averde drives administrative costs out of the system, and helps hold down costs for employers and consumers.

Mercy College National Scholar and Dean of its School of Education Dr. Alfred S. Posamentier, Authors New Book on the Beauty of Math

Mercy College National Scholar and Dean of its School of Education Dr. Alfred S. Posamentier, Authors New Book on the Beauty of Math



Book Explores Pythagorean Theorem’s History, Early Use, Applications and Non-Mathematical Manifestations in Nature and Music



Dobbs Ferry, N. Y. (Vocus) November 8, 2010



Dr. Alfred S. Posamentier, dean of Mercy College’s School of Education, explores the history and importance of the Pythagorean Theorem in his recently released book “The Pythagorean Theorem: The Story of Its Power and Beauty.”



According to Dr. Posamentier, the book “presents this glorious, and perhaps most important, mathematical relationship and examines its history, some intuitive proofs, applications in geometry, and many of its surprising aspects.”



“It’s also an excellent illustration of how math can be fun,” said Dr. Posamentier, author and co-author of 53 mathematics books.



More than 300 pages, the book explores the theorem’s history, beginning with a brief look at Pythagoras and the early use of the Pythagorean Theorem by the ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Indians and Chinese. It further examines the ingenious ways in which the theorem has been proved and demonstrates some of the curious applications it has been used for throughout the centuries. The book concludes with a look at the theorem from a non-mathematical point of view, exploring the many ways it manifests itself through nature and even in music.



About Dr. Alfred S. Posamentier

Dr. Posamentier was appointed dean of Mercy College’s School of Education in August 2010. Prior to joining the College, he served as Distinguished Lecturer at New York City College of Technology of the City University of New York. He is Professor Emeritus of Mathematics Education at The City College of the City University of New York, and former dean of the School of Education (1999-2009). He is the author and co-author of 53 mathematics books, including Math Charmers: Tantalizing Tidbits for the Mind and (with Ingmar Lehmann) Mathematical Amazements and Surprises, The Fabulous Fibonacci Numbers, and Pi: A Biography of the World's Most Mysterious Number, and is a leading commentator on topics relating to education and mathematics.

And now for something completely different in Christian Gaming&#194

And now for something completely different in Christian GamingÂ



A whacky 3D action game for Christians has just been published. Gamers have to fight their way through the 7 churches of Revelation. The game inlcudes a bible study on the first 3 chapters of Revelation.



(PRWEB) December 27, 2003



Just in case you were thinking this was a "normal" game, it ain't! So forget about dungeons, demons with 17 horns and muscle bound heros. In this game you must fight your way through 7 churches. Each church has its own set of bad guys and there are some fun weapons to play with, they all look like hood ornaments off of cars from the '50s with hot rod flames on them. Your ammo is junk food like donuts, cookies and cake. The health is coffee.



When the apostle John wrote the book of Revelation, the Lord gave him a message for each church of the seven churches. That's what this game is all about. Because the messages that applied to them also apply to us. There is a spiritual message to every level in the game. Each church has its own "angel" that will tell you all about your challenge on that level.



The game also includes a complete, in-depth study on the first 3 chapters of Revelation. There is also a link to a working demo called “Eternity the Gameshow” on the website.



If you are looking for something completely different in the Christian genre of games that doesnÂ’t take itself so seriously then Rev7 is a game to consider.



It is available to order now through the website at: http://www. newrev7.com (http://www. newrev7.com)

USACC Urges CNN Black in America Series to Include Focus on African Immigrants

USACC Urges CNN Black in America Series to Include Focus on African Immigrants



The USACC is the Leading Advocacy Organization for U. S. African Relations and promotes Emerging Markets.



Washington, D. C. (Vocus) April 7, 2009



The U. S. African Chamber of Commerce (http://www. usafricanchamber. com/) (USACC) urges CNN to consider including a focus on the growing African immigrant population in the United States within its ongoing Black in America series. Chamber President, Martin Mohammed, has been in contact with Soledad O'Brien to discuss expanding the story about Blacks in America. Without representing African immigrants, who now number over 2 million, the story of Blacks in America is incomplete. The USACC believes CNN has a duty and responsibility to tell the whole picture and to tell an accurate one of the many contributions this population is making to the U. S.



Over the last 20 years, millions of African immigrants have arrived from the 54 countries within the continent of Africa to make the U. S. their home. Today, mainstream America knows relatively little about this growing, vibrant population. In general, African immigrants in America tend to be well-educated, younger than other immigrants in the U. S. The top three occupations they occupy include Management & Professional Services, Services, and Sales within the top three industries of Education & Health Care, Retail Trade, and Professional Services. Collectively, African immigrants in the U. S. hold an estimated buying power of 50 billion dollars. With more data on this population, it is clear that they have become a vital consumer segment and emerging market within the U. S.



The USACC is the Leading Advocacy Organization for U. S. African Relations and promotes Emerging Markets. The USACC is the umbrella organization for African Chambers of Commerce and Professional Trade and Business Associations throughout the United States and abroad.

Keeping Women's Health in Check

Keeping Women's Health in Check



It is every woman's responsibility to know the causes and symptoms of breast cancer and sexual transmitted disease.



Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2006



If a woman ever experienced unusually painful menstruation or noticed lumps in their breasts and vaginal discharge similar to cottage cheese, there is a great possibility she's in trouble. Any sensible woman should immediately set an appointment and see her trusted gynecologist. Women's health is often a subject taken for granted. Most women wait until they are rushed to the hospital before they do something about their condition. Experts in women's health advise ladies to be 'listen' and 'understand' their bodies. Even a seemingly trivial symptom should not be ignored as it may be a telltale sign of deadly breast cancer or a form of sexually transmitted disease.



Women can actually detect early stages of cancer through simple do-it-yourself breast assessment. Two or three days after every menstruation period, a woman should gently check her breasts for possible lumps or change in color and texture. Gynecologists say cancerous lump is usually a firm and solitary mass that just stays in a particular spot. If a lump changes position, there's a big possibility that it is non-malignant. Aside from lumps, a woman should also watch out for the disturbing presence of veins, breast discharges which are watery or mucus-like, and nipples that are inverted. According to women's health advocates, those who have a breast cancer history in their families are more prone to acquire the illness. But even if a woman doesn't have breast cancer history, it wouldn't hurt if she regularly examine her breasts for safety measure.



Apart from breast cancer, another illness concerning women's health is sexually transmitted disease. STD can manifest in the form of chlamydia, syphilis, genital herpes, and gonorrhea. Even if a lady is not sexually active and doesn't engage in extra-marital sexual affairs, she can still obtain STD from her philandering husband or boyfriend. General symptoms of STD include thick and smelly vaginal discharge, bumps or rashes, and burning sensation in the feminine area. A woman infected with STD can also experience pain when having sexual intercourse and irregular bleeding in between menstrual cycles. Medication varies from one STD kind to another (and also depending on the severity of the case). For prevention, experts advise women to use condom which is not only a form of contraceptive but also serve as protection against STD. Husbands, on the other hand, should avoid womanizing and extra-marital sexual intercourses as much as possible. The fight against STD should be a concerted effort between husband and wife. In the case of STD, husbands are also involved in the issue of women's health.

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 10, 2010

According to the United States Department of Labor, there were a total of 135,185,230 employed in the United States in May of 2008. Therefore, taking these numbers into account, if only 10% of the employees in the United States use 1 paper time card per week, the number of trees used for paper time card production per year would be in excess of: 84,000 trees each year in the U. S. Alone.

Walden University Public Health Alumna Awarded Commander's Coin

Walden University Public Health Alumna Awarded Commander's Coin



Air Force veteran Tanisha Harding was recognized for work completed during her field practicum at the Columbus (MS) Air Force Base.



Minneapolis (PRWEB) October 26, 2007



Walden University Master of Public Health graduate Tanisha Harding was recently awarded a Commander's Coin by Col. Susan R. Hall in recognition of Harding's service to Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi. The Commander's Coin is a highly prized symbol of recognition that military commanders award to individuals who demonstrate exceptional service. Harding, a former Air Force captain, completed the field practicum for her degree by working at the base's public health office.



"It is the exception, not the rule, that graduate students seek to complete their practicum in the military setting," says Hall, commander of the 14th Medical Group. "So when Ms. Tanisha Harding sought out the medical clinic which I command, I jumped at the opportunity."



During her time on the base, Harding observed and participated in a variety of tasks that fall under Air Force Public Health responsibility, including patient education, food facility sanitation, disease surveillance, occupational injury and illness prevention, and immunization tracking. Specifically, Harding assisted with projects such as the base's "Biggest Loser Contest" finale, updating the food storage training booklet, and investigating complaints of a "sick" house.



It was during her third year in the Air Force that Harding decided to use her bachelor's in biology to pursue an advanced degree in public health. "I heard about Walden from the base education office and other avenues and decided to give it a try," Harding says.



The flexibility of the online program allowed her to relocate with her husband who is still active duty Air Force. With her master's degree in hand, she now is off to Ramstein Air Base in Germany, where her husband is currently stationed.



About Walden University

Since 1970, Walden University has offered working professionals the opportunity to earn advanced degrees through distance learning.
