Health Insurance Innovation Is Possible

Health Insurance Innovation Is Possible



Former U. S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson References Liazon on Larry King Live



Buffalo, NY (Vocus) August 21, 2009



As the debate on how to provide health insurance coverage (http://www. liazon. com) for Americans continues, Liazon’s innovative approach to affordable benefits for employers and employees alike continues to receive validation from small employers and their employees, chambers of commerce – the traditional sources of affordable health insurance for small - and mid-size employers -- associations, and, now, the former U. S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson.



During last night’s interview and debate with Elizabeth Edwards on Larry King Live (8/19/09), the former secretary referenced Liazon as an example of how private insurers could address the task of providing affordable coverage for Americans (http://www. liazon. com). What is Liazon?



Liazon is a consumer-centric employee benefits company (http://www. liazon. com) that helps small business owners control benefits costs, increase employee satisfaction with their benefits, and eliminate the burden of benefits administration. Since opening its doors for business in early 2008 (the concept was developed in 2007), Liazon has won the hearts and minds of some 1,100 small employers (2-1,000 employees) -- many of which were poised to drop their benefits prior to learning about Liazon.



“Liazon was created to enable small business owners and their employees to overcome all the obstacles to offering, selecting, managing, and using affordable insurance coverage across the benefits spectrum,” stated Tim Godzich, Liazon co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “The Liazon model stands as proof that it is possible for all Americans to have access to high-quality, affordable insurance without constraining selection,” he concluded.



Liazon provides small business owners with a total benefits management solution:

offer employees a Fortune 500-level array of health, financial, and protection plans empower employees to become informed benefits consumers with the tools to create, manage, and use personalized benefits portfolios address double-digit benefits cost inflation and create predictable long-term benefits budget with annual defined contribution strategy off-load all benefits administration



Specifically, Liazon provides small business employees with access to (with no participation restrictions or requirements) the following:

multiple health plans, ranging from traditional co-pay plans to HSA-qualified consumer-driven options a health savings account (http://www. liazon. com) (HSA) for those who choose an HSA-qualified health plan several dental options with multiple tiers of coverage and no participation requirements vision, long-term care, life, disability, and other supplemental insurance policies personalized guidance from a team of professionals via Liazon’s award-winning Bright Choices online technology, a 365-day/year consumer advocacy Helpline, and/or in-person meeting



Liazon’s Bright Choices online consumer portal provides all the tools, tutorials, and transactions to help enrollees become more effective benefits consumers, and automates enrollment, eligibility, and billing. In 2008, Consumer Health World named Liazon’s Bright Choices portal “Best Website Stimulating Consumer Engagement” from a field of 70 competitors.



Liazon is working with well-known carriers across the benefits spectrum, including well-known health insurance carriers: United Healthcare, Univera Healthcare, Anthem, MetLife, Allstate, and Health Allies.



Liazon was created by Tim Godzich, Ashok Subramanian, and Alan Cohen. Tim is a former co-founder and senior vice president of Definity Health, the company that pioneered the concept of consumer-driven health care with the development of the nation’s first consumer-driven health plan. Definity was acquired by UnitedHealth Group in December 2004 for $305 million. Ashok is a former associate principal and leader of McKinsey and Company’s healthcare, consumer products, and private equity practices. Alan is the former chief executive officer and co-founder of Online Benefits, the nation’s largest benefits administration and communication firm (5,000 employer clients; +1.3 million employees). Online Benefits was sold to A. D.A. M. in April 2006 for $30 million.



About Liazon

Liazon is a consumer-centric employee benefits company that helps small business owners control benefits costs, increase employee satisfaction with their benefits, and eliminate the burden of benefits administration. Liazon offers small businesses a benefits “marketplace” of 15 categories of benefits, with multiple plans per category; its award-winning Bright ChoicesTM portal for tools, tutorials, and transactions; full-service consumer support/advocacy from licensed specialists via its Bright ChoicesTM online technology, 365-day/year consumer advocacy Helpline, and/or in-person meeting; and automated benefits administration, covering enrollment, billing and reconciliation, carrier feeds, and payroll reports. Since opening its doors for business in early 2008, Liazon has partnered with 1,100 small employers (2-1,000 employees) nationwide to provide benefits to 7,000 employees.

The Bob Rivers Show and KZOK Set a Record In World Vision Radio-thon Fundraising History

The Bob Rivers Show and KZOK Set a Record In World Vision Radio-thon Fundraising History



On Wed. May 18th, 1645 Children in AIDS ravaged Ethiopia were sponsored by northwest listeners on the Bob Rivers Show (KZOK 102.5 FM/Seattle and KVMX 107-5 FM/Portland). At $35 per child per month ($420 a year), this amounts to $420,000.00 in support per year from our listeners. Arik Korman, The Bob Rivers Show Director, traveled to Ethiopia with World Vision from May 2 to May 12, 2006 to meet the two children The Bob Rivers Show has sponsored, Betelehem and Daniel.



Seattle, WA (PRWEB) May 24, 2006



The Bob Rivers Show (KZOK 102.5 FM/Seattle and KVMX 107-5 FM/Portland) were overwhelmed with calls from generous listeners on May 18th during their on-air radio-thon to raise funds and awareness for the ongoing plight of children ravaged by the AIDS pandemic in Ethiopia. The Bob Rivers Show joined forces with the charitable organization World Vision, and has received sponsorships from listeners that will help support 1645 children in the Ethiopian villages of Wonchi and Guraghe.



“The amazing response of KZOK listeners was gratifying and humbling,” says Steve Quant, World Vision’s Director of Media Acquisition. Quant continued, “World Vision was honored to partner with KZOK and CBS Radio, and nearly 1700 children’s lives in Ethiopia will forever be changed.”



According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the number of people lost to AIDS in Ethiopia is projected to reach 1.8 million by 2008 if current trends continue, leaving thousands of orphaned children to fend for themselves.



“At $35 per child per month ($420 a year), this amounts to $420,000.00 in support per year from our listeners. These funds will provide access to things like clean water, nutritious food, health care, education, agricultural assistance, and more. In addition to meeting urgent daily needs, the money raised will provide assistance like trained counselors who look after children, help them care for sick parents, and promote sustaining values. World vision delivers a minimum of 87 cents on every dollar generated directly to those in need. We checked them out, and Arik Korman (Show Director) bravely made the trip to Africa to bring the story home,” explains Bob Rivers.



Arik Korman, The Bob Rivers Show Director, traveled to Ethiopia with World Vision from May 2 to May 12, 2006 to meet the two children The Bob Rivers Show has sponsored, Betelehem and Daniel. As the show’s ambassador, he viewed firsthand the devastated areas.

Max Muscle Sports Nutrition declares, "The Answer to the Health Crisis Is To Stay Out of It!"

Max Muscle Sports Nutrition declares, "The Answer to the Health Crisis Is To Stay Out of It!"



Through the debates and trials of the Health Care Crisis, the American public has come to realize that preventative measures are needed to stay 'out' of the health care system by focusing on proper nutrition and physical fitness. It's a message Max Muscle Sports Nutrition stores across the country have been stating for nearly twenty years. Forward-thinking individuals see the trend and are opening their own stores across the country with more enthusiasm than ever.



Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) March 26, 2010



Moments after signing a historic $938 billion health care overhaul that guarantees 32 million uninsured Americans with the biggest shift in U. S. domestic policy since the 1960s, Attorneys general from 13 states filed suit to stop the overhaul contending the law is unconstitutional. Clearly, the 'health' of the American people is the most important topic of these times. For those Americans that look for opportunity in times of public conscious, Max Muscle Sports Nutrition has a message for you: Educate yourself on Personal Nutrition, then ask yourself, "Where will people get this education?"



"Most health related concerns are because of improper diet, lack of nutrition, and poor physical fitness." said Sean Greene, President of Max Muscle Sports Nutrition. "We've built a business developing personal Nutrition Plans for each person individually, then supporting that plan with supplementation specifically for that individual to attain maximum health. People all over the country are clamoring for this education and our store owners success continues to climb because of it."



Greene pointed at immense national shifts in the food industry to prove his point. PepsiCo Inc. recently announced plans to cut the sodium found in each serving of its key brands by one-fourth in five years dealing with pressure from the government and health-conscious shoppers who want healthier alternatives. The company also set two goals for the upcoming decade: cut the average added sugar per serving by 25 percent and saturated fat per serving by 15 percent, in addition to adding more whole grains, fruits, vegetables and low-fat dairy into its assortment of products.



Kraft Foods Inc. pledged to cut salt in its products sold in the United States by an average of 10 percent over the next two years. ConAgra Foods Inc. and Campbell Soup Co. also announced sodium cuts in their products.



Todd Jones, a former airline pilot and avid health enthusiast, recently opened the second Max Muscle Sports Nutrition in Bristol, Connecticut, stating, "They present the most sound advice towards proper nutrition via their employees becoming a Certified Fitness Nutrition Coach and their proprietary meal planning software. Additionally, they have the finest, highest quality supplements available."



While many franchise opportunities exist for people who want to run their own business, potential Max Muscle Sports Nutrition store owner Chris Bryan says, "Why would we choose to shop at a Max Muscle? Because when nutritional advice based in fact is combined with nutritional supplements that actually work you get Max results. Why would we invest in a Max Muscle Sports Nutrition? Because for Teresa and I we feel that it would be the perfect marriage between career and lifestyle."



First Lady Michelle Obama has made the fight against childhood obesity a top priority. Last week she asked the nation's largest food makers at a meeting of the Grocery Manufacturers Association to "step it up" and put less fat, salt and sugar in foods.



Added Greene, "We all know that the average American is not getting what they should from the diet they employ. Supplementation of the American diet is something that even the American Medical Association stresses every person to take part in. We're in this great position because that's been our message from Day One. You walk through the door of a Max Muscle Sports you're educated on what you - you specifically - need. With that education you're empowered to supplement accordingly. That's what people are looking for. They don't want to be sold. They want to be educated. Thankfully, that's our business model and luckily people who want to control their own livelihood are seeing an opportunity in owning their own store."



The men and women who qualify to own one or more Max Muscle Sports Nutrition franchises build strong retail businesses in choice locations across America using a responsive, proven business system that includes marketing, management, sales, training, and product knowledge unsurpassed in the industry. You'll find a great deal of information about franchising in general, and specifically Max Muscle Sports Nutrition franchising by going to http://www. MaxMuscleFranchise. com (http://www. MaxMuscleFranchise. com) and reviewing their "Five Step Process" to ownership.



"If you're looking for a business that combines your passion for healthy living with the opportunity to help people achieve their health and fitness goals, this is it." said Patrick Sanders, President of Peak Franchising, Inc and Chairman of the Board of the Franchisee Association. "We're on the cusp of a societal shift in diet and fitness and Max Muscle Sports Nutrition is perfectly poised to accept it all."



Committed to improving the health of people from all walks of life including men, women, young adults, everyday fitness enthusiasts, as well as high school and college athletes. Employees are extremely knowledgeable and take the time with each client to pinpoint their health and fitness goals in order to find the best program, products and supplements for them to achieve those goals.

ConAgra Foods Announces Largest Donation Ever to Fight Child Hunger with Feeding America at the Organization's Concert Featuring Sheryl Crow



Ending September's Hunger Action Month on a high note, a celebrity supporter of Feeding America announced ConAgra Foods Foundation's new $10 million commitment to Feeding America at its "Rock a Little, Feed a Lot" concert Tuesday night featuring Sheryl Crow, Ben Harper and other performers. ConAgra Foods Foundation's contribution is the largest donation ever made to fight child hunger with Feeding America and will help the organization meet the needs of the more than 12 million children in America - one in six - who are at risk of hunger across the country.



Omaha, NB (PRWEB) September 30, 2009



Ending September's Hunger Action Month on a high note, a celebrity supporter of Feeding America announced ConAgra Foods Foundation's new $10 million commitment to Feeding America at its "Rock a Little, Feed a Lot" concert Tuesday night featuring Sheryl Crow, Ben Harper and other performers. ConAgra Foods Foundation's contribution is the largest donation ever made to fight child hunger with Feeding America and will help the organization meet the needs of the more than 12 million children in America - one in six - who are at risk of hunger across the country.



"Hunger Action Month may be coming to an end, but our commitment to ending childhood hunger is year-round," said Gary Rodkin, CEO of ConAgra Foods. "With this $10 million grant to Feeding America's child hunger programs, ConAgra Foods and our Foundation are strengthening our commitment to help provide kids in America with the nourishment to thrive."



The $10 million grant supports new Feeding America child hunger initiatives that provide children with the nourishment needed to succeed in school and life, including:

 Establishing the ConAgra Foods Child Hunger Corps, a group of dedicated individuals whose roles will be to advance child hunger programs in communities across the country.  Funding the Summer Feeding Program to feed children when they don't have access to free and reduced school breakfast and lunch programs.  Creating the new ConAgra Foods Fund to Fight Child Hunger to provide funding to meet critical child hunger needs in communities the Feeding America's network of food banks serves.



Understanding that child hunger can't be solved alone, ConAgra Foods Foundation is also building a community of people passionate about ending child hunger. A new online community launches this week on Facebook (www. facebook. com/ConAgraFoodsFoundation (http://www. facebook. com/ConAgraFoodsFoundation)) and will provide a place where individuals committed to the issue can connect with each other and learn more about ConAgra Foods Foundation and Feeding America's efforts to addressing child hunger.



For every person who becomes a fan of the ConAgra Foods Foundation's Facebook fan page through Oct. 10, ConAgra Foods Foundation will give another $10 to Feeding America. The ConAgra Foods Foundation is committed to giving up to $100,000 donation to Feeding America's child hunger initiatives in addition to the $10 million grant announced at the concert.



ConAgra Foods' relationship with Feeding America is the largest corporate initiative among Feeding America donors dedicated solely to fighting child hunger. Since 1993, ConAgra Foods and its brands have contributed nearly $35 million dollars and more than 230 million pounds of food to support Feeding America programs.



"The ConAgra Foods Foundation has been a deeply committed, generous partner of Feeding America for more than 15 years, and is recognized at the Leadership Partner Level, the highest level among our donors. Additionally, ConAgra Foods Foundation is recognized as the exclusive Leadership Partner in the Fight to End Child Hunger," said Vicki Escarra, president and CEO of Feeding America. "The leadership of the ConAgra Foods Foundation in the fight against domestic child hunger is exceptional and impactful. We are so grateful for this new $10 million commitment, which will help us immensely in the fight against childhood hunger."



Since 1993, ConAgra Foods has had a direct role in supporting many crucial Feeding America's direct service, capacity building, and advocacy initiatives. Groundbreaking ConAgra Foods-funded programs include:

 First to fund the Kids Cafe program nationwide, supporting more than 250 sites that provide kids with a safe place to go after school to do homework and eat a free meal.  First to create a national program for vehicle grants for Feeding America's network of food banks, enabling transportation of food from warehouses to the distribution sites where its need most.  First to direct funding toward the national Simplified Summer Food Service Program - making sure that kids who rely on the federal free lunch and breakfast program during the school year don't go hungry over the summer.  First to fund Feeding America's Child Hunger Research - specifically State-By-State Child Hunger Statistics - helping better understand the problem to find a sustainable solution.  Leader in building the technology infrastructure for Feeding America to operate more efficiently.



"Our commitment to ending child hunger is the cornerstone of ConAgra Foods' corporate responsibility efforts," said Chris Kircher, president, ConAgra Foods Foundation. "Our employees and our customers care deeply about fighting child hunger and we're engaging our brands - and the consumers who love them - because it's going to take a community of people passionate about ending child hunger to bring an end to this problem."

New Website Offers Meeting Place and Information About Breast Augmentation

New Website Offers Meeting Place and Information About Breast Augmentation



The new website http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com is not only a source of information for those interested in breast augmentation, but it's also a meeting place for those who have questions about the surgery as well as their options. By combining the sense of community as well as easy to read articles, this website is making well-informed patients out of its readers.



Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 17, 2006



The new website http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com (http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com) is not only a source of information for those interested in breast augmentation, but it's also a meeting place for those who have questions about the surgery as well as their options. By combining the sense of community as well as easy to read articles, this website is making well-informed patients out of its readers.



"One of the things that I noticed about women who were interested in breast augmentation was the stigma that sometimes is attached to it. Women are hesitant to ask for information about the surgery and in doing so, can make choices about their health without the proper background," says Julia Tanner, founder of http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com (http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com). "Women need a place to turn to where they can get honest information, but also in a supportive environment."



The simple article format of http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com (http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com) allows women to read articles such as:



 Breast augmentation for teens  The benefits of breast enhancers  The difference in a breast lift  Boob job myths revealed



"What I wanted to offer was a broad spectrum of options for women that feel their breasts are not the right shape or size," explains Julia Tanner. "The truth is that not everyone is the right candidate for a breast augmentation, but there are alternatives that can help them feel better about their body. I try to include explanations of their choices, so that they make the right one for themselves."



The honesty that is apparent on http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com (http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com) offers readers the chance to finally be honest with their own feelings as well as with other women in the same position. With a comments section, readers can offer their own experiences as well as thoughts, but interact with a 'Democracy' section with a questionnaire.



"Women need support during this kind of decision," reminds Julia. "Often the idea of breast augmentation is limited to being a medical procedure, when in fact; it can be just as much an emotional shift as a physical one. By establishing a website that gives all sides of the story, women can feel validated in their fears as well as in their concerns."



Another function of the website is to remind readers of the alternatives to breast augmentation - many of which most readers will not have learned about beforehand. Topics like breast lifts and breast enhancers show the reader that surgery is not their only alternative and that extensive medical care is not the only way.



"The truth is that many websites focus on the idea that breast augmentation is the only way for a woman to feel better about themselves," says Julia. "But I wanted to make sure that the woman realizes that it's not the new look that she's getting with the surgery or other breast enhancement; it's the new outlook that she will get on life."



Geared toward anyone that might have questions about breast augmentation, this website is open to teens, mothers, breast cancer survivors, and any woman that needs to know more about her options. Go to http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com (http://www. breastaugmentationlounge. com) for more information.

Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery: Busy living the Entrepreneurial Dream

Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery: Busy living the Entrepreneurial Dream



The first episode of “Brew Masters” aired last night, November 21st at 10 pm EST on the Discovery Channel. The show follows Dogfish Head Craft Brewery a small but creative brewery located in rural Delaware. In addition to their new venture, Dogfish Head is one the contributing breweries for the soon to be “Birreria”, a New York City brewpub located on the rooftop of the famous Eataly. Sam Calagione, founder and President of Dogfish Head has proven that entrepreneurial dreams do come true.



Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) November 22, 2010



The first episode of “Brew Masters” aired last night, November 21st at 10 pm EST on the Discovery Channel. The show follows Dogfish Head Craft Brewery a small but creative brewery located in rural Delaware. In addition to their new venture, Dogfish Head is one the contributing breweries for the soon to be “Birreria”, a New York City brewpub located on the rooftop of the famous Eataly. Sam Calagione, founder and President of Dogfish Head has proven that entrepreneurial dreams do come true.



Starting with nothing more than a home brewing kit and a small Manhattan stove, Sam Calagione founded Dogfish Head Craft Brewery fifteen years ago, the nation's fastest growing independent craft brewery in Milton, DE and Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach, DE. A fateful job waiting tables introduced him to micro brewed beers. After bankers dismissed his original business plan, he raised $220,000 from friends and family to open Dogfish Head Brewing & Eats, a 150-seat restaurant-brewpub in downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.



Sam published the details in the first edition of his unconventional business story in October 2006 titled, “Brewing Up a Business: Adventures in Entrepreneurship from the Founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery” (Wiley; October 2006; ISBN: 9780470050453). Sam revealed how he found success by dreaming big, working hard, and thinking differently.



A highly entertaining and an enlightening first-hand tale, BREWING UP A BUSINESS depicts the life of the company’s rise from the smallest commercial brewery in the country to the fastest growing brewery in the United States. The book is as unique and offbeat as the brewery that inspired it. Instead of being inspired by the Jack Welchs and Peter Druckers of the world Sam writes of a business philosophy based on lessons from Andy Warhol, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Bob Dylan, Miles Davis and Walt Whitman.



With new stories to share about Sam Calgione’s entrepreneurial journey, the 2nd edition of BREWING UP A BUSINESS is set to publish in February 2011,“Brewing Up a Business: Adventures in Beer from the Founder of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Revised and Updated, 2nd Edition” (Wiley; ISBN: 978-0-470-942314). Calagione offers a deeper real-world look at entrepreneurship and what it takes to operate and grow a successful business.



What makes Dogfish Head stand out amongst the Bud and Coors of the world? It’s easy; their original mission of “off-centered ales for off-centered people” still resonates as much today, if not more, than it did fifteen years ago. Sam Calagione has continued to search for new and exciting ingredients and inspirations for their beers. They were the smallest craft brewery in the country, and today they are one of the top 25 breweries in America, out of 1600 breweries.



Sam Calagione emphasizes this in the upcoming 2nd edition of BREWING UP A BUSINESS, “We are 'off-centered,' meaning that we’re not going to appeal to the majority. That said, we’ve been able to carve out a very healthy niche, growing by catering to a very small but increasing and very engaged minority beer drinking population – those who want more flavor, more diversity, more complexity, more food compatibility in their beer. Those are the folks we’ve grown with; and, there’s a lot more of them today than there were when we were the smallest craft brewery in the country. “



In several new chapters, he discusses Dogfish's most innovative marketing ideas, including how social media has become an integral part of the business model and how other small businesses can use it to catch up with bigger competitors. Calagione also presents a compelling argument for choosing to keep his business small and artisanal, despite growing demand for his products.



Calgione’s innovative style has earned him a reputation as one of America's most adventuresome brewers and businessmen. He was named by The Small Business Association as Businessman of the Year for 2004 and has been recognized as the youngest person to be named to the Board of Directors for the Association of Brewers.



With real lessons on entrepreneurship and success from a real entrepreneur, as well as practical ideas on nontraditional marketing, BREWING UP A BUSINESS 2E is a business story that will open readers’ eyes to the benefits of thinking differently. Using unconventional marketing and promotional techniques as well as a strong-willed determination to succeed, Sam has defied the odds and built a successful business within an industry that is ruled by massive companies, strict government regulations and large advertising budgets. For any entrepreneur with a dream, Brewing Up a Business, Second Edition presents an enlightening, in-depth look at what it takes to succeed on their own terms.

If A Rat With A French Accent Can Cook, So Can You

If A Rat With A French Accent Can Cook, So Can You



If you think cooking for your family is too much work, or too hard to learn, get inspired by a cute little rat that's been cooking it up on the big screen, and let a new menu planning service help.



Milford, IL (PRWEB) July 31, 2007



A little rat from the newest animated movie "Ratatouille" is motivating many parents to give cooking another try. Menu Planning Central, a new menu planning service, makes it easy for busy parents to figure out what to cook and brings plenty of helpful hints and instructions as well as support. Each member receives 12 different weekly menus per month ranging from family friendly fare to healthy and vegetarian dishes. Each menu comes with detailed recipes and a categorized shopping list, making it easy to prepare each dish.



Thousands of Americans pick up their nightly dinner at a fast food drive through or call for pizza delivery instead of preparing a home-cooked meal for themselves and their loved ones. Cooking at home just seems too hard and time consuming. After all, who has the luxury of sitting down and figuring out what to cook, find the recipe and then run to the store? Christine Steendahl, "The Menu Mom" does - in fact she's been doing this for years. "I started sitting down and planning what I was going to cook out of necessity after my second child was born. I just didn't have the time to run to the store every other day to pick up something to cook for dinner", says Steendahl. "Making out a menu allowed me to shop once a week and makes preparing dinner at night a much calmer and easier event for the whole family".



Soon friends and family members asked her to share her weekly menu. That's when Christine Steendahl realized that there was a real need for a diversified service that would help families cook dinner again. "This is just what my family needed", says Susanne Myers. "Our four-year-old daughter is enjoying the family-friendly meals and I'm even able to sneak in the occasional piece of steamed fish and of course lots of veggies. I'm feeling like a much better mom feeding her a balanced meal instead of heating up some frozen chicken nuggets and calling it dinner."



Quite a few of Menu Planning Central's customers get the whole family involved with dinner. Watching the movie "Ratatouille" together can be a great way to get the kids interested in preparing food. Not only will you teach them an important life skill, kids are also more likely to eat healthier foods if they help prepare them, and perhaps you can even sneak in little lessons in math, remembering colors and the names of different types of foods.



For more information about menu planning, and how you can start planning your own meals right away, visit http://www. menuplanningcentral. com (http://www. menuplanningcentral. com) and grab your free copy of Christine's Menu Planning Basics report.

Build the Backyard of Your Dreams at The Spa and Pool Show This Weekend at The Palmer Events Center in Austin

Build the Backyard of Your Dreams at The Spa and Pool Show This Weekend at The Palmer Events Center in Austin



Spring is Here! See everything for the backyard at the Palmer Events Center all under one roof.



Rochester, MI (PRWEB) April 14, 2010



Spa and Pool industry veteran of over 30 years, Tim Baele makes a great case for buying a spa this weekend at the Palmer Events Center in Austin for you and your family. “A high end Spa or Hot Tub, such as a Master Spa, is the best investment you can make for your health, wellness, sleep, aching muscles, stress relief and family fun! Master Spas have won almost every honor awarded to spa manufacturers."



Master Spas have won Consumers Digest –Best Buy, Spa Search’s Certified Award, The Inspire Award from the Hot Tub Industry, Dr. Gadget’s seal of approval, The BBB Torch Award and they have appeared on Discovery Channel’s “How it’s Made” and more.



“The best place to buy a spa is at the Spa and Pool Show,” Baele said “You can see dozens of variations of Hot Tubs, Spas, Swim Spas in all colors, shapes and sizes. Consumers can come to the show and see, feel, touch and get in the running models and try them out. With up to 100 spas, saunas and pools on display, you can get your best deal on a floor model at the show. Some people will come to the event with a truck and a trailer with cash in hand."



With a tough economy in the US, manufacturers are cutting fantastic deals. Homeowners are again investing in their backyards so they can enjoy themselves everyday instead of just taking vacations that lasts a few days. In some parts of the USA, hot tub sales have slowed. In contrast, Swim Spas sales are up as much as 50%. Swim Spas are a combination Lap Pool and Hot Tub. They are easy to install and less costly than a pool. Check out www. h2xswimspa. com for more info.



Tim Blake, from Spa World in Texas said, “Our customers love their Swim Spas because they can be used year round vs. 6 months out of the year you can use a pool. They cost much less than a pool to maintain and they can be moved to your next home if you relocate."



Tim Baele of Master Spas added, “Pools can sometimes keep a house from selling if the potential buyers don’t see the value in a pool. Swim Spa owners seem to love their spas so much, many of them will take them to their next home."



Studies have shown that swimming or working out in water is the best form of exercise. Whether it’s building strength and endurance or for low impact on joints and muscles, the swim spa is the perfect solution.



Come see why 5 Time Olympic Medal Winner Josh Davis has a Master Spa. And why Olympic Medal winner in Beijing, Allyson Felix uses her Master Spa to relax and rejuvenate to keep her one of the fastest runners in the world.



The Spa, Pool and Sauna Show is coming to the Palmer Events Center in Austin this weekend. April 23-25. The Show hours are Friday 3-8pm, Saturday 10-8pm and Sunday 10-6pm. Admission is free. For more show details log onto www. poolandspashow. com or Call 1-800-SPA-SALE.

Nice Pak/PDI Announces "My Healthy Arkansas" Results

Nice Pak/PDI Announces "My Healthy Arkansas" Results



Researchers Document 25 Percent Drop in Community Infection Rate During City-wide Hand Hygiene Intervention



Mooresville, Indiana (PRWEB) December 16, 2010



An unprecedented public health initiative has demonstrated the potential of hand hygiene awareness and compliance to reduce the spread of illness and related healthcare costs in a community. The study further demonstrated the power of public-private partnerships in tackling intractable health issues, specifically both Community and Healthcare Acquired Infections.



Nice-Pak Products, Inc. / Professional Disposables International, Inc. (PDI), today announced results of the "My Healthy Arkansas Initiative," a multi-faceted program conducted in Jonesboro, Arkansas. This program aimed at decreasing healthcare costs by reducing the levels of community-acquired infection, specifically Staph infections. The program also focused on raising awareness of hand hygiene through educational programs that trained more than 10,500 people on the importance of hand hygiene and the correct use of alcohol-based hand wipes. Sani-Hands® Antimicrobial Alcohol Gel Hand Wipes and dispensing floor stands were made available throughout the community, including shopping areas, various local businesses, all city government buildings, the University and schools.



At the conclusion of the study, researchers confirmed a 25 percent reduction in the incidence of skin and skin structure infections presenting to the hospital emergency department compared to the beginning of the study. The most common isolate from the wound cultures was Methicillin Resistant Staphyloccous aureus (MRSA). Preliminary findings for the study were presented at the annual Infectious Diseases Society of America Conference on October 23, 2010 by lead researcher, Dr. Carl Abraham, Department of Epidemiology, St. Bernards Medical Center.



"Prevention efforts play a significant role in cutting healthcare costs in Arkansas and across the United States," Arkansas Governor Mike Beebe said. "Exploring partnerships, like this one between Jonesboro and Nice-Pak/PDI, helps find new ways to reduce both the transmission of disease and the need for treatment."



According to the U. S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), hand hygiene remains the single most important way to break the chain of infection. "Nice-Pak/PDI is pleased to have been a part of the My Healthy Arkansas Initiative and we are extremely encouraged by the dramatic results that have been demonstrated in the community," said Dr. Hudson Garrett, Director of Clinical Affairs for PDI. "Given the tremendous toll that Staph and MRSA infections take on the healthcare system, any decrease in these infections will result in decreases in the costs of providing healthcare."



In addition to Nice-Pak/PDI, My Healthy Arkansas program partners included the Arkansas Governor's Office and First Lady Ginger Beebe, Jonesboro City Government including Mayor Harold Perrin, St. Bernard's Healthcare, Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce, and Arkansas State University.



For more than 30 years, Nice-Pak/PDI pioneered the development, testing, manufacturing and marketing of pre-moistened wipes as the optimum delivery system for skin antisepsis, hand sanitizing, patient care and surface disinfection. Today, PDI remains at the forefront of infection prevention with superior products, convenient product accessories and unparalleled training and support for clinical staff and environmental services. Its trusted brands include Sani-Cloth®, Sani-Hands®, Hygea® and Chlorascrub™. Nice-Pak Products, Inc. and Professional Disposables International, Inc. are headquartered in Orangeburg, New York. http://www. pdipdi. com.

Physically Handicapped Dutch Personality Brings Recovering Juveniles an Unforgettable Experience

Physically Handicapped Dutch Personality Brings Recovering Juveniles an Unforgettable Experience



Joost Nauta, a young Dutchman who suffers from a severe muscular disease that's kept him bound to a wheelchair since early childhood, does not let his physical limitations set limit to his dreams.



(PRWEB) October 12, 2003



On the contrary, he pushes himself to achieve his goals as well as inspire others to do the same. A few years ago Joost Nauta started the Bordercoss Foundation, which promotes a whole new view focusing on the idea that the strength of handicapped people can lead them to discover how to successfully live their lives by crossing borders in spirit and space. Joost Nauta, whose control over his own body has been limited to only the use of his thumbs and mouth, is maybe the best example of this idea. He has been able to create and build this organization which employs several people.



Youth Breaks!



On the 11th of October, Joost Nauta will be at the Curacao airport to welcome the first group of youngsters from the Netherlands who have come to participate in an unforgettable experience organized by the Bordercoss Foundation. They are all patients of the Dutch WilhelminaÂ’s ChildrenÂ’s Hospital, who suffer from a severe arthritis affliction. As the first of four annual Youth Breaks! expeditions, they'll have the time of their lives on this beautiful island in the Dutch Antilles. The climate of Curacao is very suitable for their condition as the water provides them with an ideal environment to develop their physical motor skills. And in the water they will be!



The Youth Breaks! program that Bordercross offers will introduce a different world to the youngsters, where in water, gravity is minimal and movement comes more easily. Under professional guidance, they will face the challenge of open water diving for the very first time! Water can be a dangerous environment where even healthy children need lots of guidance and equipment to help them to breathe and stay under water for a period of time. Many people would have thought this impossible for challenged children, but Bordercross made it a reality!



And that is the main purpose of the Youth Breaks!; Breaking free from thinking about limitations. That's not something only the participants will have to learn! Nothing is impossible!



Joost Nauta can be reached at the following address from 11-10-03 until 20-10-03.

New Drug-Free Treatment for Menopause Reduces Frequency and Intensity of Hot Flashes

New Drug-Free Treatment for Menopause Reduces Frequency and Intensity of Hot Flashes



More women are going through menopause than at any time in history and many are turning to controversial Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) to manage their menopausal symptoms. But a new discovery identifies that excessive menopausal symptoms are due to disruptions in the body’s energy system (chi) and not a deficiency of estrogen. EFT is a simple, do-it-yourself adaptation of acupressure that relieves hot flashes and night sweats in a completely natural manner by bringing balance to the energy meridians.



San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 21, 2006



What was once simply “the change of life” has been labeled a medical issue and many women turn to prescription medication to help them combat their menopausal symptoms. Drugs may give some women temporary relief from hot flashes, night sweats and mood swings but they do not address the cause of excessive menopausal symptoms. EFT is a groundbreaking form of acupressure that targets a woman’s disrupted energy meridian system (chi) as being responsible for much of the discomfort associated with menopause.



Gary Craig, the Stanford-trained engineer who developed EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) explains “EFT is a natural treatment for the symptoms associated with this natural life process. I suggest that women consult physicians regarding its use. Chances are, they won’t have to trade night sweats and hot flashes for the increased risk of disease and other side effects that have shown to come from HRT.”



According to the National Institutes of Health, “it is important that menopause not be viewed as a disease.” What has resulted from the “medicalization” of menopause is that women and healthcare providers may be overusing treatments that may carry high risks. In fact, the use of HRT has dropped since 2002 after studies reported links between HRT and increased risk for breast cancer, heart disease, stroke, gall bladder disease and blood clots.



In addition to the risk of disease, the side effects associated with HRT include mood changes, nausea, vaginal bleeding and bloating. But many women are willing to take the risk in an attempt to find relief from their symptoms. EFT provides a safe, effective alternative to women whose symptoms are causing discomfort and distress.



“Hot flashes can have very serious health complications and should not be lightly dismissed.” says bestselling author, Dr. Joseph Mercola. “If they interfere with a woman's sleep they can devastate a woman's health. From a hot flash perspective, I have seen EFT work for many women where estrogen did not even seem to help.”



Craig says, “conventional medicine may not have adequately explored the link between physical symptoms and the energy meridian system. I have witnessed thousands of cases where EFT has cleared energy blocks, and as a result, physical symptoms and discomfort have subsided or disappeared. EFT has provided relief for women with debilitating hot flashes and night sweats; it has resolved sleep disorders, mood swings and other symptoms linked to menopause.”



EFT is a do-it-yourself acupressure technique that anybody can learn. It combines focused thought with gentle fingertip tapping on key acupressure points. According to Craig, “EFT practitioners all over the world are helping women relieve the discomfort associated with menopausal symptoms, and when applied correctly and persistently, EFT works 70 – 80% of the time. This is a tool that women have at their fingertips and they can address the hot flash with EFT as it is happening.”



Nancy O’Hanna described her hot flashes and night sweats as “horrible, annoying, exhausting, tiring, and embarrassing”. Unwilling to take medication, but needing relief, O’Hanna tried EFT for her hot flashes and night sweats.



After a single EFT session, her hot flashes diminished in every way, including frequency, duration and intensity. When they eventually re-appeared, they were less intense and rapidly subsided after a few more applications of EFT (a few minutes). One brief session of EFT also significantly reduced her night sweats and the chills that would often follow them. Two months after her EFT work, O’Hanna reported “I am basically without hot flashes or chills. If I do get a "flare-up" I simply do a round or two of EFT and they are history.”



“Women can easily balance their energy meridians with EFT and positively affect their menopausal symptoms”, Craig explains. “But they can also use EFT to address typical yet unwanted signs of aging like decrease in energy, changing libido and memory loss.”



Over 225,000 have downloaded Craig’s free training manual and another 10,000 download it each month. The official EFT Manual has been translated by volunteer practitioners into nine languages.



The EFT Manual explains the basics so that anyone can begin applying EFT right away. It can be freely downloaded at

He further said, it is similar to producing a fine wine, everything is all hand made and you can see the love and passion expressed in the work, each one produced and handled as if it was a fine work of art, no rush nor push in the production, what we produce is what is available. We consider our brand to be perfection and perfection can not be hurried.



"I have never seen such devotion and love put into creating any product." AMELEON is certainly unique, I can assure you that the product will be appreciated by those, who truly appreciate and recognize style, elegance and quality.



AMELEON is also been used by cosmetic surgeons who recommend the brand to their patients prior to surgery to get the skin completely rejuvenated and healthy prior to surgery thus enabling better cosmetic results and healing, it is also recommended after surgery in order to maintain the new look. It seems that AMELEON is not just a pretty face!



AMELEON is by far the best and most honest cosmetic beauty product on the market, it is stylish, elegant, value for money and actually performs, our formulas are rich and effective, they are on par and in many cases surpass the very top French, Italian, German and Swiss brands, till now there has not been any brand that can match the top European brands, now there is, AMELEON.



The organic skincare manufacturer opened their doors in Portland, Oregon USA in September 2007 and is already creating a buzz with users. The products rapidly reduces appearance of scars it reduces and even removes blemished and pigmentations in addition they completely rejuvenate the skin and spun the growth of new skin cells within 12-48 hours after application.



We are new here in the United States and with our website precense it is logic that we also offer our U. S. clients the luxury of home delivery right from our web-site, said the Nilsson.



As a grand-opening promotion, AMELEON is offering free shipping, of the entire product line, to all United States customers.



Our 100% organic, eco-friendly products are available for men and women and have especially been a success in day spas.

"It nourishes and moisturizes the scalp plus it promotes healthy and stronger hair growth by as much as 27%" Nilsson, said. To top it off, this product is so concentrated that a pee size droplet goes a long way.



Customers appreciate our environmental conscious packaging and shipping process. Our products are filled in recycled glass and plastic, packed in recycled cardboard and never packaged in bubble-wrap or peanuts, thus awarding AMELEON their very own tag-line: The Natural Way.

Colpurin at Forefront of Natural Detoxification Popularity

Colpurin at Forefront of Natural Detoxification Popularity



Better personal health care is a topic on the minds of many in today's more health conscious society. As more people strive to live better lifestyles through holistic health, many are flocking to natural detoxification supplements such as Colpurin offers, because they can easily and gently flush harmful toxins, parasites and excess fecal waste from their systems, and relieve the many associated symptoms from toxicity in a private, safe and all-natural method.



Manalapan, NJ (PRWEB) March 23, 2009



Natural detoxification is quickly becoming a prevalent aspect of good health maintenance in our society. Amid fleeting episodes of colds and flu viruses, allergies and other ailments attributed with an overabundance of toxins in the system, such as excess weight gain, bad breath, chronic headaches, and lethargy, more people are seeking natural detoxification and better holistic health through revolutionary colon cleanses and body purification systems such as Colpurin.



Such natural cures for toxicity are quickly becoming sweeping trends that offer a myriad of benefits to the consumer. Benefits like immediate weight-loss (there tends to be, on average, five to tend pounds of excess fecal waste stored in the colon), relief from persistent migraines, and increases in energy, top the list as to why holistic health care products such as Colpurin are becoming so rampantly used in the health conscious world of today.



According to experts, there is literally billions of bacterium in the colon, some good, or 'Beneficial Bacteria' that work side-by-side with the body and aid in many functions, and other 'Bad Bacteria' that can play culprit to many ailments, typically associated with an abundance of toxins in the body.



Huntington Nutraceuticals (the makers of Colpurin natural detoxification supplement) spokesperson, Tom Rogers, credits more recent consumer awareness to the benefits of such natural detoxifiers to a more prevalent aspect of better health maintenance in today's society.



"More people are realizing that they can eliminate many of the common woes associated with personal toxicity (i. e., bad breath, chronic headaches, fatigue, abnormal weight gain, poor digestion, etc.) by using an effective, natural detoxification supplement such as Colpurin offers," says Rogers.



"Colpurin is an over-the-counter, breakthrough system that offers a natural, safe, gentle and effective combination of formulas to provide internal cleansing and purification," Rogers explains.



"Many people are flocking to Colpurin because it provides a chemical-free, gentle and proprietary blend of herbs and fibers developed for those seeking a quality holistic approach to health and vitality," Rogers states.



The benefits of Colpurin are numerous, according to Rogers.



"Colpurin has been clinically proven to flush out old, impacted matter, and utilizes ingredients such as Lactobacillus, Acidophilus and garlic, that work to create an environment inhospitable to most parasites…a true benefit for anyone who is seeking safe, effective, affordable and natural detoxification through a colon cleanse."



Colpurin is an all-natural, over-the-counter, colon cleanse, natural detoxification and body purifier supplement. The Colpurin system consists of the leading internal cleansing formula (Phase 1), and the most complete body purification product available on the market (Phase 2); taken in capsule form orally, twice per day.
