Millions Seek Weight Loss on National Personal Trainer Awareness Day

Millions Seek Weight Loss on National Personal Trainer Awareness Day



Every January 2nd millions of Americans, armed with their latest resolution they made the day before to lose weight and get in shape, start their annual attempt at making this the year they make positive, permanent healthy lifestyle changes. By February most of the ambition has faded and virtually all have returned to their familiar position - plopped in front of the television eating God knows what. National Personal Trainer Awareness Day was founded with the hopes of preventing this from continuing to happen.



Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) December 9, 2005



Every January 2nd millions of Americans, armed with their latest resolution they made the day before to lose weight and get in shape, start their annual attempt at making this the year they make positive, permanent healthy lifestyle changes. By February most of the ambition has faded and virtually all have returned to their familiar position - plopped in front of the television eating God knows what. National Personal Trainer Awareness Day was founded with the hopes of preventing this from continuing to happen.



"Personal trainers play a crucial role in helping people actually achieve their health and fitness goals", said Virgil Aponte, a fitness expert based out of Brooklyn, New York. He went on to add "Trainers are highly educated and are not the tank top wearing 'muscle-heads' many people associate with the word personal trainer."



Aponte believes that today's fitness professionals are able to help people in a number of important ways:



-- Designing fitness programs that achieve far greater results in much less time than most people think possible.



-- Decrease their risk of injury while exercising significantly.



-- Keeping them motivated and help them set realistic goals.



-- Acting as a role model and support person to help them stay focused on living a healthy lifestyle.



Virgil Aponte offers up the following suggestions for selecting the right trainer:



1) Ask your inner circle of friends, business associates or family if they know of any local trainers. The best trainers are usually found by word of mouth referral.



2) Define your goals and interview several trainers who specialize in working with people just like you. If you want general fitness conditioning you are not going to hire a trainer who specializes in training power lifters.



3) Try several trainers before you make your final choice. Most trainers will offer a trial period to see if personalities are compatible.



4) Take the time to check references and learn about the trainer’s background. A good trainer will provide a potential client with references of a few past and current clients as well as the sources of their certifications or degrees.



Virgil Aponte is the owner of GivStrength Personal Training in Brooklyn, New York. He has successfully trained hundreds including professional athletes from the WNBA and Major League Baseball and is the creator of The Ultimate Stair Exercises & GetFit Anywhere DVD programs. Visit www. GivStrength. com for more information.

Beat the Holiday Dress Shopping Blues

Beat the Holiday Dress Shopping Blues



New York Fashion Designer debra deRoo Shares 5 Holiday Dress Shopping Tips for Real Women with Real Figures.



New York, NY (PRWEB) December 1, 2008



The holidays are just around the corner, and that means holiday parties. Clothes shopping for those special events should be a pleasant experience, right? Not for some women - especially those of us with not so perfect bodies. Too many women with otherwise healthy self esteem can experience the dressing room blues; feelings of anxiety, dread or downright depression in the dressing room.



A recent Fitness Magazine survey of 1,000 women clothes shoppers found that 10% of female respondents have cried in a dressing room. Another 15% have ripped or been stuck in an article of clothing and 39% have purchased clothes too small in hopes it would later fit. Other women admitted to being afraid to reveal their dress size to sales staff and nearly two-thirds of adult women say clothes shopping adversely affect their self confidence, which is particularly true among women wanting to lose more than 30 pounds.



New York City fashion designer debra deRoo offers these tips to help real sized women shop confidently for fashionable holiday clothes.



1. Start Early and Wear the Right Clothes for Shopping

DeRoo suggests giving yourself at least two weeks lead time to find the right outfit for that special occasion. Try to wear or bring undergarments such as pantyhose, a strapless bra or cami that will pair well with various styles. Wear easy on/off clothes. And, pre-styled hair and makeup can make that dressing room mirror easier to face.



2. Find Boutiques that Cater to You

Finding the right store is essential to clothes shopping success. Stores with a mature, friendly, and fashion conscious staff will know the cuts and styles that best compliment your body type. They will assist you with appropriate selections, and will help you feel comfortable and less self conscious. And, consider the shopping environment. Are you best in a calm and quiet environment, or somewhere that's hip and vibrant?



3. Choose Styles that Flatter

Research designers who make clothes that minimize figure flaws and play up attributes. Do you have great legs? Play them up with a shorter style dress that draws attention there. A thick middle? Consider an empire a-line dress that creates a faux waistline. deRoo also suggests pants paired with a stylish cropped jacket that does not constrict your middle.



4. Dressing Rooms & Lighting

The ideal dressing room is ample sized with lots of hooks and at least one full length mirror. Avoid shops with overhead fluorescent lights as they show every lump, bump and bulge. Instead, look for dressing rooms with not too bright, warm hued lights that flatter your skin tone.



5. Take Your Time Shopping

Shop when you have time, aren't rushed, and preferably not after a meal. Try to schedule one or two hours for shopping and you're much less likely to make a fashion faux pas. 



And remember, almost everyone, including celebrities and models, has figure flaws. Be confident, find a cut and style that compliments your figure, and celebrate, imperfections and all, a joyous holiday season.



Founded in 1991, debra deRoo is a casual sportswear collection found in more than 400 women's specialty stores across the United States. Designed with an adventurous spirit and effortless attitude, deRoo cuts easy, forgiving silhouettes in luxury fabrics while paying homage to the latest trends - young at heart, yet realistic of fit. With a commitment to quality, deRoo uses luxe fibers and designer construction to create a laid back, yet sophisticated luxury collection of washable, lifestyle-friendly clothes that travel well.

Stop Poisoning Your Pets With Spot Drop Treatments Cedar Oil Industries Has An All Natural Alternative

Stop Poisoning Your Pets With Spot Drop Treatments Cedar Oil Industries Has An All Natural Alternative



Stop Poisoning Your Pets With Spot Drop Treatments Cedar Oil Industries Has An All Natural Alternative. Animal Wellness Magazine recently released an article naming Cedar Oil Industries products as No Toxic Chemicals Rated #1 Bio insect control products. These products have been tested at the request of the U. S.D. A. by Iowa st. U. and tested by ICR International Labs with 100% mortality.



San Antonio TX, (PRWEB) September 3, 2009



Cedar Oil Industries Warns That Pesticides Are Threaten the Health of Children, Families, Pet's & The Planet.



Revolutionary new Line of 100% all Natural Insect Control Products (http://www. Pestigator. com) for homes and pets are Disrupting the Chemical Pesticide industry forever. No longer is it Prudent or Politically correct to spray chemicals around people or pets. According to an article from The Whole Dog Journal published in 2002 (http://www. apnm. org/publications/resources/fleachemfin. pdf) we must beware of Spot-On Pesticides such as Frontline, Zodiac, Defend, Bio Spot, Adams and Advantage trigger which can cause adverse reactions in dogs and cats, shorten life spans, cause terminal illness, and premature death. Americans are becoming passionate about children, pets, neighborhoods, waterways and the environment as they become increasingly aware of the Toxic chemicals the pest control industry has sprayed around homes and schools plus the One-Spot Drop travesty that we put on animals, Americans will begin to search out new and innovative alternatives. These revolutionary all natural products will reverse the public mind set, and change the complexion of the insect control industry worldwide. "The theory of using lethal toxins delivered through the animal's bloodstream is absurd. This practice is just wrong and is neither competent nor professional in nature. Contrary to a belief, products marketed under the guise of Pet Med's are far removed from that of a bona fide medication.



Cedar Oil Industries A World leader in Cedar Oil distribution for the Pest Control and Animal Health Industries announced the availability of its recent launching of there new Bio formulations Dr. Ben's old fashion insect control for personal protection and pets. The other formulation Natures DeFender for out door treatments around homes, businesses, agricultural, bushes and flower gardens. These products will revolutionize the way the world performs insect control. This unique product has been referred to as the most advanced BIO substance ever developed for insect control. Recent tests conducted by Iowa State University at the request of the U. S.D. A. and ICR international labs confirm an Insect Kill rate that far exceeded our initial expectations on fleas and bed bugs. We are experiencing 100 % mortality in fleas, ticks, bed bugs, lice and mites; those parasites that continually plague people, our domestic mammals, dogs and cats, and an array of farm, equine and other live-stocks.



Cedar Oil Industries is dedicated to protecting children families and their pets from the serious health consequences of pesticides. Our company works to reduce pesticide use and promote safe effective all organic alternatives. At the center of our efforts is the Cedar Oil Formulations, a proven method that emphasizes simple, inexpensive pest control practices that cause the least harm to people, pets and the planet. Robert Amarine the man behind the marketing of these products has done his work, and with his vision and foresight, he believes every home in America will have a Cedar Oil based product in the near future. These organic products will change the Toxic chemical insect control industry forever. As a matter of fact Robert said "these products will go down in history as the best insect control products ever brought to the market. Period!". These products work on all non-beneficial insects, including heat seeking venomous snakes, scorpions, nemetoedes, ants, roaches and numerous other insects.



Our Challenge:

Changing the Way the Public Thinks About Toxic Pest Control one home at a time…

Insects are an old problem that still grabs headlines because traditional pest control methods haven't solved it and never will. Studies show that less than one percent of pesticides actually reach the intended target (the remainder has many unintended recipients including people and wildlife), and insects have developed a resistance to chemicals.



The Cedar Oil protection plan focuses on prevention and methods that cause the least harm to people pets and the environment. The Cedar Oil Solution focuses on removing the cause of insects in your home by building a barrier of entry around your property line. This Cedar Oil Solution doesn't necessarily kill the insects but makes it uncomfortable for them to re-enter your property. Our protection plan also focuses on the second generation of insects, the eggs & larvae. Cedar Oil is one of the only known substances to man that will kill the bed bug, mosquito and flea eggs. This process is achieved by allowing the Cedar Oil to dehydrate the eggs and larvae, thus eliminating the second generation of insects.



Pesticides have been linked to cancer, birth defects, neurological, behavioral, reproductive, hormonal, and immune system disorders.



According to an investigative news story from NBC Los Angeles - This serious threat to human health and pet health will persist until we learn to safely deal with insects.

Magical Sea Dragons Arrive At Oregon Coast Aquarium

Magical Sea Dragons Arrive At Oregon Coast Aquarium



Imagine sea weed with eyes! ThatÂ’s just what youÂ’ll see when you discover the Oregon Coast AquariumÂ’s new sea dragons featured in Enchanted Seas. Learn how modern-day dragons disguise themselves as you discover how to protect these elusive creatures. Enjoy sea dragons, seahorses and a rainbow of tropical fish in the Oregon Coast AquariumÂ’s new Enchanted Seas exhibit, opening Memorial Day weekend.



(PRWEB) May 10, 2002



NEWPORT, Ore — Once you see this creature, you clearly understand why they are called sea dragons. Related to the seahorse, the newest arrivals at the Oregon Coast Aquarium sport the sleek appearance of their cousins, with the addition of leaflike appendages on their head and body. There are two types of sea dragons—leafy and weedy—making their home around rocky reefs and inshore seagrass only along the temperate southern coast of Australia. Both species will be part of the new Enchanted Seas exhibit opening Memorial Day weekend.



Sea dragons are fish that look like a piece of floating seaweed—that is, until you notice their independent-moving eyes scoping you out (just like a chameleon) or until they swim after a meal of tiny shimplike creatures, using powerful suction action to capture their prey. The male sea dragon handles baby-rearing duties by carrying the female’s 100-250 fertile eggs all the way through their hatching.



Not swift swimmers, sea dragons usually stay very still among the seagrass or kelp, waiting for mysid shrimp or sea lice to go by and slurping their prey up through long, tubelike mouths the same way we use a straw. Sea dragons have an armored body much like the seahorses’, covered with yellow, green and tan skin that spreads out to make the “leafy” or “weedy” camouflage appendages. They grow up to 18 inches in length and live for up to two years.



While sea dragons are eaten by other fishes or their babies may be consumed by anemones, they face bigger dangers from trawl fishing, from illegal capture for home aquariums, and Asian trade for medical powders and potions. Their populations are also threatened by decreasing marine habitat as well as increasing nearshore water pollution. The leafy and weedy sea dragons will be part of the new Enchanted Seas exhibit opening Memorial Day weekend and featuring the mystical world of seahorses, cuttlefish, tropical reef fishes, alligators and other magical sea creatures worth protecting.



The Enchanted Seas exhibit at the Oregon Coast Aquarium is made possible through the generous support of KYTE/KCRF, Charter Communications, Burger King, the Portland Fire WNBA, KMTR TV 16/Eugene, Spirit Mountain Community Fund, Sea Horse Oceanfront Lodging, Safeway, Factory Stores @ Lincoln City and TLC Federal Credit Union.



Located just south of Newport, the Oregon Coast Aquarium is named one of the top 10 aquariums in the nation by Parade magazine. Immerse yourself in Passages of the Deep and walk beneath the waves through a 200-foot clear underwater tunnel that snakes through three ocean habitats. Encounter sharks, rays and thousands of other fish swimming around you. Experience an exhilarating sensation when you look around and realize youÂ’re completely surrounded!



Outdoors, rugged cliffs, caves and pools showcase the many fascinating fish and invertebrates of OregonÂ’s coastal shores. Discover curious seals, sea lions and sea otters. A giant Pacific octopus lurks in an undersea coastal cave, and cartoonlike tufted puffins and other seabirds make their homes in one of the largest walk-through aviaries in North America.



Indoors, take a peek “Under the Lily Pad” at the Ocean Exploration Station for an up-close view of frogs, newts and salamanders as you discover there’s more to a pond than scum and explore the role these soggy spaces play in a healthy ecosystem. Visitors dip into the microscopic life of a pond community and see if they can identify the many creatures in the "duck soup" found in a pond ecosystem. Learn what's lurking beneath the pond's surface as you watch bluegills, compare newts and salamanders and search for tree and red-legged frogs. You'll be ribbetted!



Oregon Coast Aquarium admission is $10.25 for adults, $9.25 for seniors (65+), and $6.25 for children (4-13), children three and under are free. Advance tickets can be purchased on-line at www. aquarium. org. Group rates are available when arranged in advance. The Aquarium is open every day except December 25. Hours are 10 a. m. to 5 p. m. up to Memorial Day weekend, with expanded hours from 9 a. m. to 6 p. m. during the summer months through Labor Day.

LawTunes Releases "The Lawtunes: Live At Blackacre" - New CD of Humorous Original Lawyer Rock-and-Roll Songs

LawTunes Releases "The Lawtunes: Live At Blackacre" - New CD of Humorous Original Lawyer Rock-and-Roll Songs



Indie music label LawTunes (www. LawTunes. com) has released its latest humorous, lawyer-created, law-related album, "The Lawtunes: Live At Blackacre." The CD contains ten original rock-and-roll tunes taking on the law, lawyers, and legal practice, including, "(She's An) Electronic Discovery," "Lawyers' Blood Is Typo," "Della Street," "LawMan," "Orderin' In," "Cadillac Cab," "Little Bluebook," "Livin' Life In Six Minutes," "Everywhere There Is A Client," and "Santa's G. C." It provides desperately-needed relief to frustrated shoppers who have lawyers, law students, paralegals, and other law firm or corporate or governmental legal department personnel on their gift-giving lists.



New York, NY (PRWEB) October 24, 2007



Indie music label LawTunes (www. LawTunes. com) introduced and defined the unique genre of humorous, lawyer-created "Legal Holiday Rock" in its three groundbreaking albums, "Merry Lexmas From The Lawtunes," "Legal Holidaze," and "The Lawyer's Holiday Humor Album." This year, LawTunes points its wingtips in a new direction.



Its new CD, "The Lawtunes: Live At Blackacre," is a broader take on the law, lawyers, and legal practice through ten original rock-and-roll tunes in an album not limited by content or style to any particular season. The CD even includes a few "love songs," although expressed in the language of an attorney. The album makes a great holiday gift for lawyers, law students, paralegals, and all other law firm or corporate or governmental legal department personnel -- and the people who know, work with, and/or love them. Premised as a "live" concert at "Blackacre," the legendary parcel of land so often referenced in eternally-painful law school examination questions and scholarly legal treatises/articles, the new album includes:



1. "(She's An) Electronic Discovery": There's probably no "hotter" topic in the law today than the review and production in litigation of e-mail and other electronic documents. But that context and its developing terminology (including data accessibility, preservation, spoliation, retention policies, metadata, embedded images, the recent Federal Rules of Civil Procedure amendments, and the leading Zubulake line of cases) are appropriated with gusto to tell the tale of a lawyer falling in virtual love.



2. "Lawyers' Blood Is Typo": A lawyer is called upon after-hours (assuming there is such a thing anymore) to provide guidance to a "client" seeking a reliable life partner, and explains why he is qualified to do so.



3. "Della Street": A tribute to the most famous of legal secretaries, in a style appropriate to when "Perry Mason" first aired.



4. "LawMan": A hard-pounding and blunt explanation of exactly what it is that lawyers do.



5. "Orderin' In": The pleasures of working late and eating at your desk. To the extent there are any, this song extols them.



6. "Cadillac Cab": The big-city law firm/corporate perk with double-edges, as detailed herein.



7. "Little Bluebook": A lawyer frustrated in love desperately seeks guidance from the legal citation style manual, invoking a generous helping of the jargon of that treatise.



8. "Livin' Life In Six Minutes": A new acoustic version of a popular Lawtunes song lamenting the reduction of legal practice (and life) to billing increments of tenths of an hour.



9. "Everywhere There Is A Client": As close to an anthem for lawyers as there is, explaining some of why lawyers do what they do.



10. "Santa's G. C.": Well, old habits die hard. The album concludes with this whimsical tale about a lawyer who goes in-house to become General Counsel at Santa, Inc.



As composed, recorded, and produced by practicing litigation attorney Lawrence Savell, the songs incorporate a broad spectrum of popular/classic rock-and-roll styles. Like its predecessors, the CD is available at www. LawTunes. com (both solo or all four in partnership as the "LawTunes Jury Boxed Set") and soon will also be at major online venues including Amazon, iTunes, and CD Baby.



LawTunes' efforts are dedicated to the proposition that lawyers' zealous representation of clients and furtherance of the public good can be only enhanced by a healthy willingness of lawyers to poke fun at themselves appropriately on occasion. They contribute to the effort to make people think a little differently about lawyers, and show that attorneys are not necessarily humorless, boring, or incapable of self-deprecation (success on at least the last item is guaranteed).



Further information, cover scans, and song clips are available at www. LawTunes. com.

New Site Launched for Families and Scientists to Discuss Stem Cell Research (US)

New Site Launched for Families and Scientists to Discuss Stem Cell Research (US)



SickKids Foundation] has launched Connecting for Kids: Campaign 2008, a community of researchers, families and people passionate about stem cell and other innovative types of research.



(PRWEB) September 25, 2008



SickKids Foundation has launched Connecting for Kids: Campaign 2008, a community of researchers, families and people passionate about stem cell and other innovative types of research.



Connecting for Kids: Campaign 2008 is a portal for people whose children or loved ones are living with a life-threatening disease or traumatic injury and see stem cell research as a direct lead to the possibility of cures/recovery. It is also a place for the politically active, progressive community that wishes to advance the cause of stem cell research and its potential for medical breakthroughs.



Connecting for Kids: Campaign 2008 will inspire dialogue about the importance of stem cell research worldwide and it will encourage those who want to see these potential medical breakthroughs advanced, to lend their support to our campaign.



Currently stem cell research is heavily restricted in the United States. The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) Research Institute (http://www. sickkids. ca/research) in Toronto is in a unique position within the global stem cell community. The Canadian Assisted Human Reproduction Act (http://www. hc-sc. gc. ca/hl-vs/reprod/index-eng. php), passed in 2004, allows research on spare in vitro fertilized embryos as long as it promises a clear benefit for human health. Because of Canada's position on stem cell research and an unrivaled concentration of excellent stem cell researchers at SickKids and in Toronto, the Research Institute is poised to make stem cell breakthroughs that will have a long-standing impact on the future of health care.



Researchers believe that stem cell-based therapeutics may be used for diseases like cancer, Type-1 diabetes, joint diseases or conditions like heart damage, spinal cord injury, baldness and even missing teeth. Stem cells are also particularly exciting in the area of regenerative medicine and transplantation where adult stem cells could mitigate rejection issues.



"Our families and scientists intimately understand the importance of stem cell research in improving the health of our children," said Mike O'Mahoney, president of SickKids Foundation. "Through Connecting for Kids Campaign 2008 we are giving families insight into the issues surrounding the science of stem cells and giving our scientists the inspiration to drive this exciting field forward."



We encourage you to join the discussion, to ask questions about this exciting and promising area, to share what hopes you have for stem cell research and to encourage your friends and family to visit as well: sickkidsus. org.



About SickKids Foundation:

SickKids Foundation was established in 1972. Its mission is to inspire its communities to invest in health and scientific advances to improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world. Its vision is: "Healthier Children. A Better World.™"

Keep Health Care Burdens Off of Your Family

Keep Health Care Burdens Off of Your Family



Create a Living Will in minutes with LawDepot's new online form.



Desert Hot Springs, CA (PRWEB) June 15, 2007



Despite an increase in popularity after the media coverage given to the Terri Schiavo story in 2005, living wills are only held by 41% of Americans. LawDepot. com's recently revised Living Will form (http://www. lawdepot. com/contracts/living-will/) makes it fast and easy to draft a living will.



A living will is a document that allows a person to convey his or her wishes regarding medical treatment in the event that he or she is unable to personally convey them. LawDepot's Living Will form (http://www. lawdepot. com/contracts/living-will/) allows customers to state what type of care they wish to receive in the event that they suffer from a terminal condition, permanent coma, or a persistent vegetative state.



Having a living will also allows individuals to take the burden of their end-of-life care off of their families. The number of Americans with a living will has increased 10% since 2005, likely for this reason. Without a living will, the family may not know what a patient's wishes are. As the Schiavo case illustrated, this can result in a situation in which members of the individual's family cannot agree on what course of action to take. A living will makes the patient's wishes clear and legally binding, and that can help prevent family discord regarding what treatments should or should not be administered.



LawDepot. com has recently revised its Living Will form (http://www. lawdepot. com/contracts/living-will/) to ensure that it is completely up-to-date, and is as fast and easy to use as possible. This form can also be bundled with the Medical Power of Attorney form as part of a full Health Care Directive package.



For more information about the news that is the subject of this release (or for a sample, copy or demo), contact David Pettitt or visit http://www. lawdepot. com/contracts/living-will/ (http://www. lawdepot. com/contracts/living-will/).

5th Person Dies of Bird Flu in Egypt

5th Person Dies of Bird Flu in Egypt



A fifth person died in Egypt a few days ago, and the world barely paid attention while waiting to watch the made for TV movie on bird flu.



Ballwin, MO (PRWEB) May 12, 2006



A 27 year old woman from Minufiya in northern Egypt died May 5. She apparently caught the virus from her personal flock of chickens.



She makes the 13th case of bird flu in Egypt since the first human case was reported in mid-March. A total of 115 people around the world have been confirmed by the United Nations World Health Organization as dying of bird flu, most all of them in the past two years.



"We're taking these deaths too much for granted already," says Richard Stooker, author of How to Protect Yourself and Your Family From Bird Flu. "True, many more people are dying of other diseases. But this one has the potential to kill huge numbers of people. It's still a killer virus."



Richard Stooker researched the bird flu virus A/H5N1 and created a start to finish proprietary 7 Perimeter Immune Defense System that explains how to defeat bird flu at every stage. He also provides a list of the Super Immunity 7 herbs and supplements.



More information on how you can learn How to Protect Yourself and Your Family is available at the author's website and blog.

Inaugural “Dealer Dinner” a Success for SafetyCare™

Inaugural “Dealer Dinner” a Success for SafetyCare™



Event Focused on How the SafetyCare™ “Authorized Partners” Program Benefits Security Dealers



HACKENSACK, N. J. (PRWEB) August 13, 2005



SafetyCare™, a one-of-kind business that merges home security and safety systems with a virtually endless range of safety, health and wellness services, held its very first “Dealer Dinner” for professionals who are interested in becoming Authorized Partners of the company.



The July 20 event in Teaneck, N. J. was highlighted by a presentation from Gail Kasper, a well-known television personality and business industry presenter, who shared with the dealers her suggestions to greatly enhance sales.



“The event was a great success, as a full house of dealers learned of the many opportunities available to them through our Authorized Partner program, which gives these security professionals access to superior and unique services and benefits,” said Glenn Fischer, president and CEO, SafetyCare™.



The event included a welcome speech by Fischer, who explained why he has returned to the home security monitoring business after five years in retirement. He told the audience that it is “a wonderful opportunity and challenge” to develop an innovative company that pushes the industry to a whole new level of customer service and support.



The evening also featured a presentation by Peter P. Giacalone, executive vice president, SafetyCare™, who outlined the many services the company offers to Authorized Partners. He detailed the many components of the company, and how it is revolutionizing the industry.



Featured speakers also included Edward A. Fox, Ph. D., C. A.D. C., division head of SafetyCareÂ’s Wellness Group, who has 30 years of experience in human and behavioral services, as well as Howard Avin, vice president of sales who has three decades of experience in the security and life safety industry.



“SafetyCare™ is the only company in the United States, and possibly the world, incorporating home safety and security monitoring with other critical services, such as family counseling and health care support,” Giacalone said. “SafetyCare™ will become the new standard in home security monitoring, demonstrating how home security systems, by themselves, are obsolete.”



Security dealers who become Authorized Partners are supported with extensive marketing materials and multi-media tools, making it possible for them to provide professional presentations and sales to individuals and groups, he told the group.



“Through this program, independent dealers can continue to operate in their usual fashion, but now have the added benefit of offering SafetyCare™ services to enhance their installations,” Giacalone said. “To further enhance the dealers’ effort, SafetyCare™ will work to build, maintain and safeguard the brand.”



Giacalone noted Authorized Partners will still be able to maintain autonomy, adding dealers can advertise that they have installed the systems “monitored by SafetyCare™.”



“We find that this program is in perfect alignment with the goals of our Authorized Partners who want to accelerate their account base and increase their organization’s revenue,” Giacalone said.



As an added benefit, SafetyCare™ will distribute leads and sales to Authorized Partners in their respective service areas.



Wholesale Monitoring Services



In addition to the Authorized Partner program, SafetyCare™ offers dealers access to wholesale monitoring.



“It is an enormous benefit to the dealer and consumer that utilize SafetyCare™ monitoring services,” Fischer said. “Unlike the rest of the home security business, our monitoring is performed by first responders, such as nurses, EMTs and law enforcement professionals.”



Through this program, dealers can also upgrade subscribers to SafetyCareÂ’s full complement of services, resulting in greater profits.



SafetyCare™ is built and operated on a world-class integrated platform, fueled by GE’s MAS-MASterMind Central Station Platform. This robust service package affords dealers access to a back-end system that is unmatched in the industry. Authorized Partners have access to a range of services, including:



-MASweb



-End User Billing Services



-Online End User Billing Access



-Remote-Secure Video Surveillance and Recording



-Radio and Cellular Backup



-GPS



-Link to the SafetyCare Web Site and eCommerce Services



-Collateral and Cooperative Marketing and Material



-SafetyCare™ End User DVD Presentation



-Lawn Signs, Window Decals, Magnets, Personal Emergency Identification Cards, etc.



More information about the Authorized Dealer program can be obtained at www. safetycare. us/AuthorizedPartners (http://www. safetycare. us/AuthorizedPartners) or by contacting SafetyCare™ at 1-866-515-6869. Company officials will be soon announcing another “Dealer Dinner” to be held this fall.



SafetyCare™ is redefining the home security and safety alarm – using a high-tech system to connect its Members to a virtually endless range of security, safety, health and wellness services. SafetyCare™ provides families with immediate access to certified professionals for health crisis counseling, consultation, conflict resolution, problem solving, critical incident intervention, among many other services.

Golf Related Back Problems

Golf Related Back Problems



Reducing back problems may be the most important concern for golfers looking to for long term enjoyment from golf.



(PRWEB) June 26, 2005



Reducing their score is not the only worry on golferÂ’s minds these days. PGA players and amateur golfers suffer from back problems that donÂ’t just hurt their backs but their scores as well. Reducing back problems may be the most important concern for golfers looking to for long term enjoyment from golf. PremierMassageChair. org www. premiermassagechairs. org offers golfers better back pain solutions than simply hanging up the clubs.



Tight back muscles are the leading cause of golf related back problems. The twisting and turning action that is required to play golf, takes its toll on the spine and back muscles. Injuries are far more likely when muscles are cold, so measures should be taken to warm the back up before, during and after golf. Golfers should warm up slowly and stretch with caution. It is also wise to try and walk as much of the golf course as possible verses riding to keep the body from cooling down between shots.



A very enjoyable and effective method for warming up the back is to use massage chairs. High end massage chairs offer quality massages for a fraction of visiting a professional massage therapist. Some models such as the Premier Health Products PHP-2026 offer heat and vibration in addition to the standard massage functions www. premiermassagechairs. org/massage-chair-php-2026.html (http://www. premiermassagechairs. org/massage-chair-php-2026.html). Heat is an excellent way to loosen back muscles before and after golf.



Another massage chair that provides a good measure of back pain relief is the Premier Health Products PHP-2022 www. premiermassagechairs. org/massage-chair-php-2026.html (http://www. premiermassagechairs. org/massage-chair-php-2026.html). This model offers a zero gravity reclining feature and an inversion therapy massage feature that offers relief for overused spines. This PHP-2022 has all of the traditional massage chair features plus these additional reclining features for less than two thousand dollars. You will be amazed at how loose your back feels after just fifteen minutes in a Premier massage chair www. premiermassagechairs. org/our-premier-massage-chairs. html (http://www. premiermassagechairs. org/our-premier-massage-chairs. html).



For more information about the benefits of massage chairs, and how they can help reduce golf related back problems, call one of our staff members at 1-800-608-5488, or visit us online at www. premiermassagechairs. org. All of our massage chairs come with the best warranties in the business and will be sure to help keep you back healthy for the golf course.

Sleeping with the iPhone

Sleeping with the iPhone



The highly acclaimed 5-week treatment program for insomnia, developed by Dr. Gregg Jacobs, is released today as an iPhone and iPod touch application. The Sleep Better and Conquer Insomnia application is based on Dr. Jacobs 20 years of extensive research and clinical practice at Harvard Medical School and the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center involving over ten thousand insomnia patients.



New York (PRWEB) July 7, 2009



Mental Workout (http://www. mentalworkout. com), a company specializing in scientifically based guided meditations and therapeutic programs developed by world-renowned experts, and the company behind the popular iPhone application, Mindfulness Meditation (http://www. mentalworkout. com/store/iphone/mindfulness-meditation/), today announces a partnership with Dr. Gregg D. Jacobs to help people sleep better - using the iPhone.



"With more than 74 percent of American adults experiencing sleeping problems, and some sleep disorders being serious enough to interfere with normal physical, mental, and emotional functioning, we wanted to make the best therapeutic program available to the masses," says Mickey Beyer-Clausen, founder of Mental Workout. "This application is designed to be easily accessible, easy to use, and time sensitive."



In addition to the scientifically proven 5-week program, the application also includes an interactive sleep diary and a progress reporting system to help the sleep deprived users keep track of their sleeping patterns and improvements. The application is priced at $19.99 or - for many - equivalent to one week's supply of sleep medication.



Sleeping well is crucial because sleep deprivation is associated with serious health problems such as obesity, depression, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Emotional well-being, performance, productivity, and mental abilities are all linked with sleeping well.



"I see this as a wonderful opportunity to help people sleep better, which has been my primary motivation since I began researching insomnia more than 20 years ago," said Dr. Gregg D. Jacobs. "By teaming up with Mental Workout, my proven 5-week program is now available to everyone in a format that's eminently affordable, accessible, and user-friendly."

City Club of Portland forum to discuss meth abuse

City Club of Portland forum to discuss meth abuse



Portland, OR (PRWEB) September 10, 2005



At its weekly Friday Forum luncheon on Sept. 23, City Club of Portland presents “Methademic: A Reasoned Look at Public Crisis,” with guest speakers Mark McDonnell, Senior Deputy District Attorney for Multnomah County; Rita Sullivan, Ph. D., Executive Director of OnTrack, Inc., a rehabilitation center in Medford; and Steve Suo, a journalist for The Oregonian who has covered the meth beat extensively.



City ClubÂ’s Friday Forum, which is open to the public, will be held in the Governor Hotel (614 S. W. 11th Ave.). Doors open at 11:30 a. m. Program begins at 12:15 p. m. and concludes at 1:15 p. m. Luncheon reservations must be made online at www. pdxcityclub. org or by calling 503-228-7231, ext. 103 or 102, by 2 p. m. Wed., Sept. 21 (members only may call 503-241-9242). Luncheon tickets are $20 ($16 for members of City Club). Coffee/tea table tickets are $5 at the door. General seating, available at the door, is $5 (free for members of City Club).



Use of methamphetamines — an addictive drug that’s cheap, easy to make and particularly widespread in the Northwest — has far-reaching effects on communities. Obvious consequences for users and manufacturers include illness, injury and death. From 2001 to 2004, meth ranked as the state’s second-deadliest illicit drug, with the number of meth-related deaths increasing from 50 to 78 in that period.



Property owners, too, face financial loss due to damage from fires, explosions, decontamination costs and loss of rent. Police estimate that 85 percent of property crimes and crimes involving identity theft are directly tied to meth use. There are also increased costs to the public for medical services and emergency room use for meth users and producers.



Governments must spend tax dollars on additional law enforcement, prosecution and social services. In fact, one local economic consulting firm pegged Multnomah County’s “meth tax” — the costs of property crimes, fires, incremental foster care, meth lab cleanups of housing and certain health care costs borne by the community at large through direct economic losses, higher insurance premiums and other means — at $363 per household, more than the average 2004 Multnomah County income tax.



Meth use also contributes to domestic violence, child abuse, motor vehicle accidents and the spread of infectious diseases through shared needles and high-risk sexual behavior. And its manufacture degrades environmental quality when hazardous components and byproducts find their way into soil, water and air.



Oregon Partnership’s 2005 Portland Profile reports that meth lab seizures more than doubled in the tri-county area between 2000 and 2004, attributed largely to budget constraints. Statewide, however, the the number of seized meth labs dropped about 50 percent in the five months following the Oregon Board of Pharmacy’s October 2004 adoption of a temporary rule to control consumer access to cold pills that contain ephedrine or pseudoephed-rine — key ingredients in meth production.



The new state law requiring a doctor’s prescription for such medications is one step in a comprehensive community response to a communitywide problem. But what more can be done? Join us to hear first-hand from those working in the field about what this “methademic” means for our community.



A NOTE TO MEDIA



Media are encouraged to attend and are invited to sit in general seating. Please sign in at the registration table on the day of the forum. For broadcast media, an audio press patch will be available, and a riser for videotaping can be provided with advance notice. Contact Tim Krause at 503-228-7231, ext. 102.

ABOUT STEVE SUO



Steve Suo, 37, is a crime reporter with The Oregonian. His five-part series on meth, published last October under the title "Unnecessary Epidemic," showed how the federal government long ago could have contained the spread of the country's methamphetamine epidemic. The series revealed how simple but compelling solutions were delayed, scantly funded, or abandoned time and again, allowing the drug's abuse to spread inexorably from West Coast to East. The series was a finalist for the 2005 Pulitzer Prize in National Reporting and Harvard University's Goldsmith Award for Investigative Reporting. Slate magazine's media critic, Jack Shafer, last month posted a column urging journalists who write about meth: "Don't, don't, don't write a column inch on the subject before you read The Oregonian's comprehensive methamphetamine package from head to toe."



Suo has worked at The Oregonian since 1994, starting out on the politics beat later moving to the paper's crime team. He specializes in projects that combine statistical analysis with traditional investigative techniques. Some of his major stories have included: a reconstruction of what went wrong in the New Carissa shipwreck response; an early analysis of the costs and benefits of gentrification in Portland; and an in-depth profile of Mark Hemstreet, hotel tychoon and GOP campaign financier. Steve holds a master's degree from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government and a bachelor's degree in government from Oberlin College.

Facial Procedures Top for Men Seeking Cosmetic Enhancement

Facial Procedures Top for Men Seeking Cosmetic Enhancement



According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, facial cosmetic surgery and nonsurgical facial procedures are the most popular treatments for men. Denver facial plastic surgeons Dr. Andrew Wolfe and Dr. Steven Vath discuss why.



Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) December 9, 2010



According to board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Andrew Wolfe and Dr. Steven Vath at the Center for Cosmetic Surgery (http://www. denverminifacelift. com), more men are choosing facial enhancements including BOTOX® Cosmetic and blepharoplasty in Denver. The trend they are seeing in their practice is in line with recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).



"It is a common misconception that men are more body-focused when it comes to their appearance," notes Dr. Vath. "But the statistics and our experience indicate otherwise. Men frequently choose procedures such as eyelid surgery or a facelift in Colorado at our practice, mirroring the national numbers."



One reason for these statistics may be the real or perceived benefits of looking younger. Some studies indicate that men who appear younger fare better in the job market. Many men feel that maintaining a youthful appearance improves their confidence and gives them an edge in the workplace. "The fact is, we live in a very youth-oriented society," observes Dr. Wolfe. "The face, typically more so than the body, reveals our age, and may affect others' perception of us." Quick, noninvasive solutions to correct the signs of aging may be appealing to men who want a natural result with no downtime.



The longer life span and more active lifestyle of men from the baby boomer generation may explain their inclination toward facial procedures. "Older men today are healthier and fitter – essentially staying younger for longer," says Dr. Wolfe. "We often hear from our male patients that they want their face to reflect that level of energy and vitality." Many of these patients are men who are plagued with heavy eyelids, deep brow furrows and frown lines that make them appear angry or stern. "Restoring a man's refreshed, alert appearance can actually improve his quality of life."



Another explanation for men's interest in facial procedures – particularly the newer, less invasive options – is that the average male is more informed about cosmetic options than in the past. "With increased information, we've seen attitudes about cosmetic procedures relax – particularly among men," states Dr. Vath. Celebrities, pro athletes, and other high profile males are more open about enhancing their facial appearance, which may have helped to de-stigmatize facial procedures for men.



For a host of reasons, men are embracing facial enhancement through surgical and nonsurgical procedures, including laser hair removal and BOTOX® in Denver. Dr. Wolfe concludes, "Whatever their motivation, men are taking control of their looks, and choosing to pay closer attention to their appearance."



Dr. Steven Vath and Dr. Andrew Wolfe (http://www. denverminifacelift. com) are board-certified plastic surgeons practicing at the Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Denver, which offers a full range of cosmetic procedures for the face and body. Dr. Vath earned his MD from the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. He completed a General Surgery residency at George Washington University and received his Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery training at the Louisiana State University Medical Center and Charity Hospital. Dr. Wolfe earned his MD at The Chicago Medical School before receiving advanced surgical training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the Georgetown University Medical Center.
