New Word -- 'Love Master' -- Added to Public Vocabulary: What Does it Mean?



A new word -- “Love Master” -- has been added to public vocabulary by Dr. Scott & Shannon Peck, authors of a new book released today, “Love Skills for Personal & Global Transformation: Secrets of a Love Master.” A full definition is included in the press release. The Pecks are Co-Founders of TheLoveCenter.



San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 1, 2006



A new word -- “Love Master” -- has been added to public vocabulary by Dr. Scott & Shannon Peck, Co-Founders of TheLoveCenter and authors of a new book released today, “Love Skills for Personal & Global Transformation: Secrets of a Love Master.”



“There is a great love awakening taking place,” say Dr. Scott & Shannon Peck, “and this awakening is both personal and global. As our lives accelerate in this advancing civilization, the number one thing we most want in life has never changed. We want to be loved. Yet the gap between our desire for love and our actual experience of love is enormous. We have not been taught love well. There is so much suffering from lack of love. When was the last time anyone took a course in becoming a love expert or upgraded their love skills from ‘Basic Love’ to ‘Advanced Love?’”



“It is time for the great suffering from lack of love to end on Earth,” continue the Pecks, “This is a moment to pause and envision what is possible. The old way of experiencing love is dissolving. Elevated thought offers a new way of knowing ourselves as Love Masters skilled in the use of love skills.’”



“Just as concert masters, web masters, or Zen masters demonstrate mastery in their areas of expertise, a Love Master demonstrates mastery in creating love. Here is our definition of a 'Love Master' in our new book, Love Skills for Personal & Global Transformation: Secrets of a Love Master:”



Term: “Love Master” (noun)



Definition: A person highly skilled in loving. Specifically, someone who demonstrates a high level of love awareness & expertise in creating love through a multitude of love skills, including living in Love alignment, loving oneself well, greeting others with love, creating intimacy, expanding love, creating peace, healing with love, & leaving a trail of love when parting.



“We have all been touched by Love Masters,” continue the Pecks. “Whenever you are being cherished, esteemed, empowered, and honored by another person, you are in the presence of a Love Master. Whenever you are expressing these qualities, then you are living as a Love Master yourself. Our world needs Love Masters in every home, school, job, and organization.”



“Here’s an example,” say the Pecks, “of what it means to live as a Love Master. One morning, at breakfast with a good friend, a waitress we knew and loved took our order with a smile and then left. We thought to ourselves, ‘Something is not right in her life.’ When she later came by, we asked her if she would sit with us for a moment. ‘What did I do wrong?’ she said. ‘Nothing at all,’ we said with great compassion. “We were just having fun identifying the two words that best describe who we are at our core level and we wanted to include you. What would be the two words that best describe your essence? She responded instantly with a big smile: ‘My words would be loving and witty.’ As she shared so easily from her heart, her entire body and identity relaxed in the love that was embracing her. She was reminded of how magnificent she is. She told us she was going through a rough time and our short time together had lifted her heart immensely. She only sat with us for 60 seconds, but she left our table transformed, invigorated, and loved.



“That’s just a small example of what happens when we embrace others as Love Masters -- using such love skills as tuning in to another’s heart, asking love questions, and listening with empathy. These are just three of the love skills in this new book, but they show the immense power of love to create intimacy and even healing.”



“The truth is,” continue the Pecks, “most of us were never taught the 60 love skills in this book, but now they are available in a simple but clear 2-page explanation and self-quiz for each love skill. Even by taking the Love Skills Quiz, a person’s love awareness as a Love Master dramatically increases.”



“What’s amazing about these love skills is that they transform every corner of our lives. We all need to love ourselves so much more. We all need to learn how easy it is to create intimacy and expand love -- with anyone! We all need to learn the secrets that powerfully dissolve conflict and create peace. And we all need to experience the power of love skills to create healing. In short, these 60 love skills are designed to bring everyone into the emerging ‘Age of Love’ as Love Masters.



Partial Endorsements for “Love Skills for Personal & Global Transformation: Secrets of a Love Master:"



“Love Skills for Personal & Global Transformation unpacks the mystery of love. Anyone can open this book & immediately learn these valuable love skills. The Pecks reveal how simple & clear love can be.”



Jack Canfield, Co-author, Chicken Soup for The Romantic Soul



“Spiritual, yet enormously practical at the same time.”



Deepak Chopra, Author, Peace is the Way



“The Pecks have created a soon to be classic work that inspires the world towards healing, peace, & experiencing the Love we were all meant to share. They have splendidly succeeded in gathering 60 simple, practical, effective skills on giving and receiving Love that will help love flow continuously throughout your life and into the lives of those you love.”



Gerald G. Jampolsky, M. D. & Diane V. Cirincione, Ph. D., Authors, Love is the Answer & Change Your Mind, Change Your Life



"The number one desire in our lives is to be loved -- and this book shows you how."



Arun Gandhi, Founder/President, M. K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence



"Love Skills for Personal & Global Transformation should be required reading for everyone over age twelve. I am grateful to Scott & Shannon Peck for tirelessly sharing their messages of love. They make the world a better place.”

PBM Auditing Increases as Rx Costs Rise, but Critics Allege PBMs Are Foiling Audits

PBM Auditing Increases as Rx Costs Rise, but Critics Allege PBMs Are Foiling Audits



Health plans and employers increasingly are turning to audits to ensure that their PBMs are delivering on contractual promises.



Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 17, 2008



AIS's Drug Benefit News -- Faced with rapidly rising pharmaceutical costs, health plans and employers increasingly are turning to audits to ensure that their PBMs are delivering on contractual promises. While some PBMs willingly open their books, industry critics allege that the auditing process is stymied by PBM gamesmanship, and that clients are losing money as a result, Drug Benefit News (DBN) reports.



If PBMs would allow better access to their documents, one veteran PBM auditor tells DBN, pharmaceutical payers could save up to 10% on their drug spend in some cases. Go to http://www. aishealth. com/pdf/dbn090508.pdf (http://www. aishealth. com/pdf/dbn090508.pdf) for the full DBN article.



For their part, PBMs say they recognize the importance of audits and point to an auditing provision that was included by URAC in last year's PBM accreditation standards. And one PBM observer contends to DBN that the sheer complexity of the PBM business -- with its multiple rebates, fees, discounts and varying pricing formulas -- can raise red flags with Rx payers, even when no wrongdoing exists.



But others involved in the PBM auditing process tell DBN they see a pernicious attempt by many PBMs to ensure that full sunshine does not fall on their books. PBMs, they assert, place undue restrictions on the auditing process that skews the audit in favor of the PBM, and can block recoveries of funds due a client. Such practices are enabled by poorly drafted PBM/client contracts and include the following requirements:



-- The PBM has a right to "mutually approve" any auditor selected by a client, and can veto any auditor that the PBM doesn't find satisfactory;

-- The auditor must sign a PBM-drafted "confidentiality agreement" that limits the type of data the auditor may audit, and requires the auditor to provide a draft audit report to the PBM before providing it to the client;

-- The auditor cannot disclose certain PBM "proprietary" information to the client, such as types of drug manufacturer rebates and amounts of individual rebates;

-- The auditor cannot copy any confidential information in the PBM offices, and may take notes only on broad findings rather than on detailed underlying data; and

-- The auditor must pledge not to be involved in any litigation against the PBM, should there be any, nor talk to any news reporters.

Imagine LAN Inc. announces LockDown Key: USB flash drive-enabled software protects Windows® PCs from unauthorized access

Imagine LAN Inc. announces LockDown Key: USB flash drive-enabled software protects Windows® PCs from unauthorized access



LockDown Key is a security software product that runs from a USB flash drive and protects Windows XP/2000 desktop, notebook and Tablet PCs systems from unauthorized access, turning the flash drive into a literal "security key" that locks and unlocks the PC.



(PRWEB) March 15, 2003



(Nashua, NH, March 18, 2003) — imagine LAN, Inc. today announced LockDown Key, a security software product that runs from a USB flash drive to protect Microsoft® Windows® XP/2000 desktop, notebook, and Tablet PC systems from unauthorized access. LockDown Key turns any standard USB flash drive into a literal “security key” that can lock and unlock a system for use only by the authorized person who holds the key.



“Through the ‘locked’ system state enabled by LockDown Key, PCs can be secured from unauthorized use or casual hackers, and sensitive data/records can be protected against illegal access and theft,” says Jan Olsen, vice president of marketing and sales at imagine LAN. “LockDown Key is an ideal security tool for corporate executives or other personnel who have access to sensitive company data, and for organizations with PCs physically located in areas that are susceptible to security breaches.”



To use LockDown Key, a PC user or system administrator first establishes an administrator login ID and password on their system using the User Accounts feature within Windows Control Panel. After establishing administrator rights, the user can prepare their key with the LockDown Key security preparation utility. Once security parameters have been enabled and the “key” generated with LockDown Key, the system will be “locked” so that no other user can gain access to the system, not even a system administrator.



To “unlock” the system, the LockDown Key-enabled USB flash drive must be plugged in and user authentication established prior to the Windows auto-login process. Users can increase security through the addition of a LockDown Key ID and password, which requires the user to enter a login/password in order to proceed with the LockDown Key authentication process. For protection against loss or theft of a LockDown Key-enabled flash drive, a new security key can be created through the LockDown Key security preparation utility. When a new key is created, the old key is automatically invalidated.



Availability, Pricing and Requirements



LockDown Key supports Windows XP/2000. It requires a USB flash drive or other USB-based portable storage device (purchased separately), and it requires very little space, making it ideal for smaller capacity storage devices. imagine LAN develops a series of applets for use with USB flash drives, providing users with an easy upgrade path to add on more security features or other USB-based mobility applets such as Email-to-Go, the companyÂ’s portable email solution. LockDown Key is expected to ship in the 2nd quarter of this year. It will cost approximately $29 dollars (U. S.) per device license, and will be available for online purchase at www. imaginelan. com/winboot (http://www. imaginelan. com/winboot) or by calling the company at (800) 372-9776 or (603) 889-3883.



See LockDown Key at FOSE 2003



Imagine LAN will demonstrate LockDown Key and other solutions for portable storage devices within the imagine LAN booth #24 within the Microsoft Partner Pavilion at FOSE 2003, April 8 – 10 at the Washington, D. C. Convention Center. Contact Kathy Krais at kkrais@imaginelan. com or (973) 762-4509 to arrange for a briefing or to obtain evaluation software.

Physicians using Billing Depot (http://www. billingdepot. com) service experience 93% of insurance claims paid within 60 days, with only 4% of Accounts Receivable (A/R) beyond 120 days. These figures represent a four-fold improvement over the national median of 17.7% of A/R over 120 days, as reported by Medical Group Management Association (MGMA).Billing Depot (http://www. billingdepot. com) has achieved these results with a uniquely transparent service that provides physicians 24x7 access to real-time claim status over a HIPAA-compliant Internet connection.



“Most claim denials and associated follow up costs and delays are caused by billing errors,” explains Pat Freeze, President of Billing Depot (http://www. billingdepot. com). “By providing billing transparency, we keep the healthcare provider ‘in the loop’ during all phases of the billing process; allowing the provider, the billing service and the payer to resolve problems together as soon as they are detected.” Continuous availability of the big billing picture and all of its components make the entire process transparent to the provider. The provider receives real-time updates about changes in A/R and cash flow, new claim submissions, error detections, follow up actions, and posted payments. A special notification and tracking mechanism prevents neglect and facilitates timely problem resolution.



Dr. Michael Lewko, Chief Medical Officer, Care Management at St. Joseph’s Hospital in New Jersey, and America’s Top Physician 2003 by Consumer's Research Council of America, agrees, “Since I have outsourced my billing to Billing Depot (http://www. billingdepot. com), my revenue from collections has been steadily improving. Most importantly, I now have more time for my patients.” Dr. Lewko concludes, “Billing Depot (http://www. billingdepot. com) allows me to keep both my finger on the financial pulse of my practice and my eye on the billing service provider. Billing transparency is key to holding the billing service accountable for every claim 24x7.”

What Makes Canadian Drug Importation Unsafe is the American Drug Companies, Says DoctorSolve

What Makes Canadian Drug Importation Unsafe is the American Drug Companies, Says DoctorSolve



Under the guise of protecting the safety of Americans, Big Pharma is actually jeopardizing the health of the elderly and uninsured.



Vancouver, B. C. (PRWEB) May 24, 2005



American Drug Companies and their lobby groups are using needless scare tactics to dissuade US citizens from purchasing their medications from Canadian pharmacies by claiming they are unsafe.



“What Americans may not realize is that many imported drugs are exactly the same as those they get from their doctor,” states Dr. Paul Zickler, co-founder of DoctorSolve Canadian Pharmacy (http://www. doctorsolve. com (http://www. doctorsolve. com)). “Our medications come from the same manufacturers. The drugs are manufactured in the same way, in the same facility, with the same rigid safety precautions. The only difference is in the package codes, and a 30 to 35 percent savings on the price tag.”



At DoctorSolve, each patient's health is of paramount importance. “Before we release any medications, we conduct a thorough review of the patient's health history. The prescription is produced by a Canadian doctor, and filled by a professionally registered pharmacist. Our full-time nurses get to know our patients. A complete review takes place at every refill, and follow-ups occur every six months. We work hard to gain our patients' trust, and they know we have their best interests at heart.”



According to Dr. Zickler, if Americans buy their drugs from pharmacies certified by the Canadian International Pharmacy Association (CIPA), they can be confident they are purchasing safe, affordable prescription medications from reputable, trustworthy companies.



“If the elderly and uninsured are afraid to purchase their medications from Canadian pharmacies because they believe they are unsafe, and they can't afford to pay for American drugs, chances are they aren't taking their medications at all,” states Dr. Zicker. “Does that not compromise their health and safety?”



Peter Rost, a Vice President of sales with Pfizer, says, “Yes.” “Getting drugs to people who need them is about right and wrong,” Rost recently stated. “When millions of uninsured older or poor Americans get sick because they can't afford their medications; that is morally wrong.”



As the pharmaceutical companies continue to spread fear amidst the American people regarding drug shopping across the border, there are indications that the tide may be turning-from the inside. A recent Associated Press article reveals that a significant number of shareholders from three of the nation's biggest drug companies voted in favor of a resolution urging them to keep their own drugs flowing to Canadian pharmacies that cater to American customers. The results of the vote show that there's no denying the fact that support for allowing access to Canadian drugs is growing.



DoctorSolve, a Canadian Internet-based pharmacy intermediary (license #BC Q37), offers lower-cost, long-term prescriptions. A professionally registered pharmacist fills all prescriptions. A certified member of the Canadian International Pharmacy Association, DoctorSolve is ranked as one of the best (five-star) online pharmacies by PharmacyChecker. com. DoctorSolve has filled more than 200,000 U. S. prescriptions.

Obesity Likely Increases Cancer Risk, Severity

Obesity Likely Increases Cancer Risk, Severity



A recent study concludes that obesity may influence the severity and progression of specific types of cancer, primarily ovarian. The study’s researchers believe that fat cells excrete a hormone or protein that allows cancer cells to proliferate at a much faster pace than in individuals who are in their ideal weight range.



San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 28, 2006



A recent study concludes that obesity may influence the severity and progression of specific types of cancer, primarily ovarian. The study’s researchers believe that fat cells excrete a hormone or protein that allows cancer cells to proliferate at a much faster pace than in individuals who are in their ideal weight range.



Physicians have long suspected that morbid obesity is closely correlated with a number of serious conditions that severely undermine the health of overweight patients, including heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. Other recent studies have also shown a link between obesity and a heightened risk for breast cancer.



“Obesity is a serious medical condition that is best addressed by medical or clinical intervention,” said Laurence Tanaka, M. D., F. A.C. S., surgeon at Pacific Bariatric Surgical Medical Group (http://www. pbsmg. com (http://www. pbsmg. com)) and Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego. “The advances in modern medicine, combined with the latest surgical procedures, allow us to combat the increased risk for disease and offer patients a better lifestyle.”



For severely overweight people, the most effective method to lose weight may be bariatric or gastric bypass surgery. In fact, according to scientifically published reports, in 95 percent of cases, significant weight lost through non-surgical programs is regained within three to five years. While bariatric surgery may set the stage for significant weight loss, it’s important to know that even surgical weight loss requires long-term lifestyle modification.



In addition to drastically reducing the size of an individual’s stomach, the surgery is also the first step in a series of lifestyle changes. Simply reducing one’s stomach size is not enough; patients must adopt a new diet, by eating lower-fat and high-protein foods to ensure proper nutrition since the amount of food they consume will be reduced. In addition, exercise will greatly improve the health and increase weight loss after surgery. Support groups, such as those offered as a part of aftercare by Pacific Bariatric Surgical Medical Group and Scripps Mercy Hospital, are an excellent way to adjust to a new lifestyle in the company of like-minded patients.



Surgeons at Pacific Bariatric Surgical Medical Group, Inc. have performed over 9,000 procedures on adult and adolescent patients at Scripps Mercy Hospital. As a result of outstanding aftercare programs and support groups, patients at Pacific Bariatric and Scripps Mercy Hospital see a slightly higher success rate than the national average.



Pacific Bariatric Surgical Medical Group, Inc. and Scripps Mercy Hospital are nationally designated by the American Society for Bariatric Surgery as a Center of Excellence for bariatric surgery. Pacific Bariatric Surgical Medical Group, also known as Hillcrest Surgical Medical Group, Inc., has an 80-year tradition of surgical excellence and leadership in San Diego County. For more information, visit http://www. pbsmg. com (http://www. pbsmg. com).



Established in 1890 by the Sisters of Mercy, Scripps Mercy Hospital serves the San Diego and Chula Vista communities. With 700 licensed beds, more than 3,000 employees and 1,300 physicians, Scripps Mercy Hospital is San Diego’s longest established and only Catholic hospital. With two campuses, Scripps Mercy Hospital is the largest hospital in San Diego County and one of the 10 largest in California. For more information, visit www. scripps. org.

Cash for Candy -- Orange County Dentist Takes a Stand Against Sweets this Halloween

Cash for Candy -- Orange County Dentist Takes a Stand Against Sweets this Halloween



One area dentist is redefining the phrase "put your money where your mouth is." This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Aesthetic Dental Designs in Laguna Niguel and receive $1 per pound.



Orange County, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2009



What's a ghost's favorite candy? BOO-ble gum!



One area dentist is redefining the phrase "put your money where your mouth is." This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Aesthetic Dental Designs in Laguna Niguel and receive $1 per pound. Dr. Todd Snyder is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars and toothbrushes in exchange for cavity-provoking candy.



"Ditch the candy, that's what we're saying. Visiting your dentist three times per year and brushing and flossing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost," says Dr. Todd Snyder from Aesthetic Dental Designs. "Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well."



Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be sure their kids teeth are being cared for more than ever. Candy, as well as hurting children's teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.



Candy will be collected at Aesthetic Dental Designs the Monday after Halloween (November 2, 2009) from 2:00 to 5:30 p. m. The candy must be unopened. Please no bites. It will then be shipped to troops overseas.



Dr. Todd Snyder is an Orange County Dentist (http://www. aestheticdentaldesigns. com/), author and international lecturer. His dental office emphasizes general dental care as well as cosmetic procedures and TMJ therapy. Dr. Snyder is available to provide more information at 949-643-6733, or visit Aesthetic Dental Designs online at www. aestheticdentaldesigns. com

Controversial Acne Treatment Gets Legitimized by Harvard

Controversial Acne Treatment Gets Legitimized by Harvard



New findings by Harvard question the medical convention that acne and stress are not related and lead the way for alternative acne treatment options that were once ignored as scientifically unfounded.



San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 23, 2006



For years respected medical institutes like the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) dismissed the link between acne and factors such as stress and diet. The AAD worked to protect acne patients from such "acne myths" based on the belief that if patients relied on unfounded science, the acne condition would only get worse. But now, new investigations have further distorted the boundaries between acne myths and legitimate acne causes.



Debates over acne inducers are as old as the chocolate and acne study first conducted in 1969. Since then, ongoing acne investigations have allowed researchers to further question the causes of acne and thereby develop better acne treatments.



This wealth of acne-focused studies allowed health researcher Nicole Dial to publish an unorthodox acne treatment book entitled Acne Messages: Crack the Code of Your Zits and Say Goodbye to Acne under the pseudonym Naweko San-Joyz.



When preparing Acne Messages, Dial used medical studies to document the relationship between acne and factors like diet, stress and emotions, even though such acne connections were medicinally considered nonsense and at best anecdotal.



However, this month, three years after the arrival of Acne Messages, the Harvard Women's Health Watch published an articled entitled, "Recognizing the Mind-skin Connection", which listed acne as a skin problem with a physiological basis "that can be exacerbated by stress and other emotional factors."



Dial explains that while Acne Message did expand treatment options for acne, a critical goal of the book was to broaden the concept and usage of "patient based medicine" for sufferers of persistent acne.



As explained recently in the November edition of the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology & Venereology, patient based medicine involves four steps: questions, explanations, negotiation and prescription.



But the problem with successfully using patient based medicine to treat acne is time. Dr. Kevin Pho, an internal medicine physician at the Nashua Medical Group, reiterated this point his medical blog this past September by explaining, "While egg buzzers in doctors' offices are rare, more doctors are posting signs asking patients to limit the number of medical issues dealt with in a single office visit to one."



Dial argues that, "For too many people, acne is a persistent plague because a 5-10 minute office visit is not enough time to find the root cause of a person's acne."



If an acne patient is limited by the amount of health issues she can discuss with her doctor in one visit, there is no feasable way for them to systemically treat the acne because the patient does not get a chance to dicsuss the multiple health issues that could be contributing to the acne condition.



Dial put forth Acne Messages to address this time issue and to allow acne patients themselves to gain a deeper understanding of their potential and uniuqe cause of acne while taking into consideration acne treatments they used in the past.



Acne Messages uses ideas from patient based medicine to help acne sufferers locate and remove their acne trigger step-by-step. Dial defines an acne trigger as any thought, location, feeling, food, emotion, response, drink, drug, memory and/or experience that sets off a series of hormonal and/or neurological reactions in your body that ultimately result in acne lesions.



Patients coping with acne and wishing to learn more about systemic acne treatments can find Acne Messages: Crack the Code of Your Zits and Say Goodbye to Acne in bookstores, at Noixia. com and at Amazon. com.

HCG Diet Direct Publishes October's "Top Asked" Question Regarding HCG

HCG Diet Direct Publishes October's "Top Asked" Question Regarding HCG



HCG Diet Direct publishes October's "Top Asked" question in their e-newsletter to ensure that every dieter has the appropriate information to maximize their weight loss on the program. Top asked questions vary widely by month from HCG Injection questions to Recipe Tips.



Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) November 7, 2010



HCG Diet Direct publishes October's "Top Asked" question in their e-newsletter to ensure that every dieter has the appropriate information to maximize weight loss on the program. Questions vary widely from HCG injection questions to recipe tips. The "Top Asked" questions will be included in each e-newsletter with appropriate (and concise) answers for each viewing in either text or html format.



This month's top asked question published in the e-newsletter was:



Q: Can I eat low calorie, sugar free snacks like Sugar-free Jello, Popsicles etc.?



A: No. While it is true these snacks are tempting because they are so low in calories, many of them contain chemicals and ingredients that can affect the diet negatively. The HCG Diet Direct program is specifically designed to include foods that promote quick and lasting results. Introducing even the smallest amount of non-approved ingredients may not cause a person to gain weight but it can slow down the overall process. If it comes down to needing to cheat to get through the diet, then this is better than ice cream. If a sweet tooth is instigating cravings, try a warm cinnamon and Stevia apple!



This month's top asked question was followed with a link to a popular dessert recipe from the HCG Diet Direct Recipe Guide.



Homeopathic HCG weight loss formula is the basis for a fast weight loss plan that can be used to achieve drastic weight loss without the HCG injection and with no known HCG diet side effects. It is one of the most healthy fast weight loss plans. When dieters buy HCG they follow the included protocol. Oral HCG drops are taken three times daily and paired with a careful eating plan. The results of the standard 26-30 day program can provide an average of 1 to 2 pounds of weight loss per day.

About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

The author of this workbook felt that there were more people in this world trying to make ends meet from paycheck to paycheck than what statistics were saying. She refers to them as "closet budgeters." How many of us really would admit to others that we are having financial difficulties? Your personal household finances are not a normal topic of conversation. In the world of keeping up with the Joneses, she took it upon herself to try to tutor others in what she had discovered to be a simple process to be proactive to their financial needs rather than being reactive after the fact. She felt no one should have to follow the "Joneses'", after all, the Jones's way may not be for everyone. A true believer that Social Security will not be available for her and her husband, she sought out other options to ensure her family's future would be financially healthy. Thus "Money Tutor, LLC" was born to help others achieve a better quality of life with a "Sailing through Life" approach.

About the Author

Susan Klun's unique perspective on something as simple as creating a household budget motivates you to give it a try. Her genuine concern for others is evident in every seminar she presents, class she teaches and is clearly visible in this workbook, Plotting and Sailing the Course: A Workbook for Life. This workbook is the result of years of trial and error to find a system to pay their household bills on time, and have money left over to invest in their future. Within a little over four years she was able to pay off car loans, recreational loans, and take their credit card debt and cut it back more than 50%. She has recruited friends and families that have tested her theories are true. She listens to each and every person in her classes and seminars to learn more about them and pass on her knowledge so they may also benefit.

Life Insurance Settlements Help Seniors Get Much Needed Cash Out of Unneeded Policies

Life Insurance Settlements Help Seniors Get Much Needed Cash Out of Unneeded Policies



Detailed information about Life Insurance Settlements for seniors is now found on the NewRetirement. com website. Life Insurance Settlements are a recent innovation that let seniors take life insurance policies and turn them into cash. Life settlement brokers can offer more value than the insurance providers, which only offer a cash surrender value.



San Francisco, California (PRWEB) July 18, 2007



Today NewRetirement. com (http://www. newretirement. com/?source=LISPR), an education and advocacy website for retirement planning, launched a new series of articles introducing life insurance settlements (http://www. newretirement. com/Services/Life-Settlement. aspx? source=LISPR). Life insurance settlements allow seniors to sell unwanted life insurance policies for cash. Retirees can capture more value by using the life settlement than they would by simply turning their policy over to their insurance provider for its stated cash surrender value -- often three to five times the cash value. In fact, most often either the insured lets the life insurance policies lapse or the beneficiaries simply never collect the benefits.



Most visitors to NewRetirement. com are seniors who are looking for ways to improve their financial well-being in retirement. Using a life settlement is a relatively new option for retirees to improve their financial status. Seniors nearing seventy or older who own a life insurance policy that they no longer need are the best candidates for this product. Generally speaking, eligibility is dependent upon age and health of the individual and the face value of life insurance policy they hold. NewRetirement's article "Assessing Eligibility" details all the factors used by policy buyers to evaluate eligibility. Individuals should contact a reputable life settlement broker to determine if they are eligible for a life insurance settlement (http://www. newretirement. com/Services/Life-Settlement-Eligible. aspx? source=LISPR). 



To help protect seniors from unscrupulous brokers, NewRetirement. com's life settlement section includes a 9-point checklist to use when evaluating a life settlement broker. In addition, at the visitors' request, NewRetirement. com can also put them in contact with qualified pre-screened brokers that will generate quotes from competing buyers. The competition helps maximize the return on the policy for the insured. The senior life settlements section is rounded out with one article providing information that describes when to use or avoid life settlements and another outlining what to expect in the application process.



The NewRetirement website covers a variety of other retirement financial services and products: reverse mortgages, mortgage refinancing, debt consolidation, annuities, relocation, financial advisors, supplemental health care insurance and long term care insurance.



NewRetirement. com also offers a proprietary data analysis engine, presented in the form of a retirement calculator. This free retirement calculator interactively responds to visitors' input with customized presentation of financial planning options matched to their specific situation. A user can save their data to continue working at another time, or return to update it once their situation has changed. For example, they can calculate how much longer their retirement income might last after securing a reverse mortgage.



About NewRetirement LLC. NewRetirement LLC was founded in 2004. NewRetirement's management team has experience and education from several nationally known organizations. Among these companies are: Charles Schwab, JP Morgan, Embark. com, Wells Fargo, E-Trade, The Princeton Review, BusinessWire, AllAdvantage. com, Insurance. com, Viant Consulting, Williams Sonoma, Seer Technologies (IBM/First Boston), and US Web, among many others.

How to Travel to the Outer Banks Using Vacation Rentals

How to Travel to the Outer Banks Using Vacation Rentals



Whether trying vacation rentals for the first time or if you’re one of the nearly nine in 10 travelers who plan to rent again, Seaside Vacations offers the following planning tips and insights as a post-game update for visiting the Outer Banks:



Kitty Hawk, NC (PRWEB) February 9, 2010



With a TV commercial highlighting vacation rentals having aired in Sunday’s big game, the demand for vacation rental homes on the Outer Banks has soared. Football fans are discovering why renting vacation homes, condos, villas and cabins is a favorite choice for many versus hotels. Beyond the experiences families and friends build by staying in a home-away-from-home on the Outer Banks, there are numerous benefits to choosing vacation rentals – sometimes in ways you’d least expect. Don’t miss out on your chance to enjoy an affordable vacation in an Outer Banks vacation rental.



Whether trying vacation rentals for the first time or if you’re one of the nearly nine in 10 travelers who plan to rent again, Seaside Vacations Marketing Director, Adam Norko, offers the following planning tips and insights as a post-game update for visiting the Outer Banks:

 CONSIDER BOOKING EARLY: Vacation rental homes can fill up months in advance, especially during busy vacation seasons. Summer on the Outer Banks is very busy, and many reservations are made months, if not a year, in advance. If you have your heart set on a particular house, a particular area, or particular amenities, you may want to consider making your reservation early. Please call Seaside Vacations at 877.219.3794 to book an affordable vacation for this summer.  KNOW YOUR DESTINATION: Whether you are a first-time traveler to the Outer Banks or not, it’s recommended that you become familiar with our special events, seasons and offerings. Here are some activities that guests find most enjoyable (http://www. outerbanksvacations. com/events. htm):



Taste of the Beach Kelly's 21st Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade Kitty Hawk Kites Easter Eggstravaganza 8th Annual Outer Banks Bike Week 73rd Anniversary Season of The Lost Colony Outer Banks Daredevils Baseball Independence Day Celebrations Watermelon Festival Outer Banks Home Builders Association's 18th Annual Parade of Homes Fourth Annual Duck Jazz Festival Trick or Treat Under the Sea Wings Over Water Wildlife Festival Outer Banks Marathon and Half Marathon Hangin’ with Santa & Kites with Lights Christmas Celebrations



 LOOK FOR SPECIAL VALUES: During certain seasons, vacation rental specials can provide even more value, some with homes starting at just $30 per person, per night, with all of the typical amenities of a resort and more. Visit http://www. OuterBanksVacations. com (http://www. OuterBanksVacations. com) to become familiar with various vacation rental types, reservation rates as well as exclusive promotions.



 AVOID AIRLINE BAGGAGE FEES: Most Outer Banks vacation rentals come equipped with washers and dryers. Travelers may choose to use these perks to pack less clothing, avoiding commercial airlines’ baggage fees and restrictions.



 USE SPACE TO YOUR ADVANTAGE: Outer Banks vacation homes and condos can range from 1 to more than 14 bedrooms, often costing less than a single hotel room by sleeping up to 30 guests versus just a few.



 SAVE ON DINING OUT: With full kitchens, dining rooms, breakfast bars and outdoor grills, Outer Banks vacation rental travelers often make and store meals and snacks for less, including football favorites like homemade nachos during post-season trips. Use our famous fresh-caught local seafood for more memorable mealtimes. This also provides healthy travel options, cutting the amount of calories typically consumed while on vacation.



 ASK ABOUT AFTER-HOURS SERVICE: When looking into any vacation rental accommodations, check to see if there is an accessible customer service number for emergency needs 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and for after-hour requests.



 ENTERTAIN FOR FREE: Most of Seaside Vacations’ homes and condos include amenities not found in hotels – including private pools, hot tubs, recreation rooms, fireplaces, DVD players, WiFi, and book and movie libraries. Many are also in communities with access to community pools, tennis, fitness centers, the beach, etc.



 ASK ABOUT PARTNERSHIPS: A vacation should be more than just a house at the beach. It should be time with friends and family, a chance to relax and unwind and an opportunity to experience the local culture. Seaside Vacations is redefining the Outer Banks vacation experience by combining the best things about staying in a private vacation home with the best things about staying in a luxury resort. Welcome to the exclusive Club Seaside (http://www. outerbanksvacations. com/ClubSeaside. htm).



 REMEMBER BIG EVENTS: Whether it’s for football championships or national Bowl games, concerts, baseball series’, basketball or other events, vacation rentals can save fans from the hassle of finding multiple hotel rooms during big events, and on the cost of multiple reservations.

Study: Genetic Risk for Substance Use Can be Neutralized by Good Parenting

Study: Genetic Risk for Substance Use Can be Neutralized by Good Parenting



A genetic risk factor that increases the likelihood that youth will engage in substance use can be neutralized by high levels of involved and supportive parenting, according to a new University of Georgia study.



Athens, Ga. (Vocus) February 10, 2009



A genetic risk factor that increases the likelihood that youth will engage in substance use can be neutralized by high levels of involved and supportive parenting, according to a new University of Georgia (http://www. uga. edu/) study.



The study, published in the February issue of the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology (http://www. apa. org/journals/ccp/)], is the first to examine a group of youth over time to see how a genetic risk factor interacts with a child's environment to influence behavior.



"We found that involved and supportive parenting can completely override the effects of a genetic risk for substance abuse," says study co-author Gene Brody, Regents Professor in the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences (http://www. fcs. uga. edu/). "It's a very encouraging finding that shows the power of parenting."



Brody and his colleagues, who include UGA Institute for Behavioral Research (http://www. ibr. uga. edu/) director Steven Beach and University of Iowa Associate Professor of Psychiatry Robert Philibert, focused their attention on a gene known as 5HTT that's involved in the transport of the brain chemical serotonin. Most people carry two copies of the long version of the gene, but those with one or two copies of the short version have been shown in several studies to have a greater likelihood of consuming alcohol and other substances and to have higher levels of impulsivity and risk taking.



The researchers interviewed 253 African-American families in rural Georgia over a four-year period. After obtaining informed consent from the parents and youth, they collected saliva samples for genetic testing.



The researchers found that nearly 60 percent of the youth had two copies of the long gene, while the remainder had one or two copies of the short gene that confers risk. As expected, the use of substances was low among 11 year-olds and increased as the youth aged. By age 14, 21 percent of the youth had smoked cigarettes, 42 percent had used alcohol, five percent had drank heavily and five percent had used marijuana.



Among youth with the genetic risk factor, those who received low levels of involved and supportive parenting increased their substance use at rate three times higher than youth with high levels of parental support. Among youth with high levels of involved and supportive parenting, the difference in substance abuse was negligible - regardless of genetic risk.



"In families that were characterized by strong relationships between children and their parents, the effect of the genetic risk was essentially zero," said Beach, who is also a Distinguished Research Professor in the psychology department of the UGA Franklin College of Arts and Sciences (http://www. franklin. uga. edu/). "With this study and previous studies looking at environmental risk factors such as poverty, we're finding that in many cases the best way to help children is to help families become more resilient."



Involved and supportive parenting is a very powerful tool, and Brody said it's relatively simple to implement. Some examples include parents regularly spending time with children, communicating with them to gauge how they're doing, providing emotional support and helping them with their material and day-to-day needs such as homework.



"We all carry around genetic risks," said Brody, who also directs the UGA Center for Family Research (http://www. cfr. uga. edu/)], a unit of the IBR, "but fortunately very few people are impacted by those risks because their environment protects them."



The research was supported by grants from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and the National Institute on Mental Health.

Actress & Activist Susan Sarandon to Receive IPAÂ’s 2005 Mary Pickford Award For Outstanding Artistic Contribution to the Entertainment Industry

Actress & Activist Susan Sarandon to Receive IPAÂ’s 2005 Mary Pickford Award For Outstanding Artistic Contribution to the Entertainment Industry.



The International Press Academy will bestow this honor during the 9th Annual Satellite™ Awards Presentation January 23, 2005, in Beverly Hills, California.



Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 17, 2004 -



— The International Press Academy (IPA) today announced that Susan Sarandon, noted actress luminary of stage, screen and television and well respected human right activist, has been named the recipient of the 2005 Mary Pickford Award for Outstanding Artistic Contribution to the Entertainment Industry. IPA will present the Mary Pickford Award at the Satellite™ Award gala set to take place January 23, 2005, at The Beverly Hills Hotel, 9641 Sunset Boulevard, Beverly Hills, California 90210-2938.



Susan Sarandon began her career as a Ford model but quickly grew weary of just being a tall and beautiful red-head with striking eyes and began to pursue acting. She made her film debut as the ill-fated hippie daughter in JOE. Ms. Sarandon built her career with solid early performances in LOVIN' MOLLY, THE FRONT PAGE and the female lead opposite Robert Redford in George Roy Hill's THE GREAT WALDO PEPPER. She attracted widespread attention for her role in the cult hit THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and earned the first of five Oscar nominations for ATLANTIC CITY, opposite Burt Lancaster.



Ms. Sarandon's early film work revealed a rare ability to be both thoughtful and sexy as evidenced by offerings such as PRETTY BABY, KING OF THE GYPSIES, COMPROMISING POSITIONS, THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK, THE HUNGER, BOB ROBERTS, CRADLE WILL ROCK. As she matured-ever so gracefully—she came to embody the seductive older woman in films like BULL DURHAM, WHITE PALACE, ILLUMINATA, TWILIGHT and the recent remake of ALFIE.



Through 80Â’s and 90Â’s, the depth and range of her work was widely considered among the best of her generation, earning her Oscar nominations for THELMA AND LOUISE, LORENZOÂ’S OIL, THE CLIENT and her first Academy Award for her portrayal of an empathetic nun in DEAD MAN WALKING. In recent years, Ms. Sarandon has starred in a number of films including MOONLIGHT MILE, IGBY GOES DOWN. THE BANGER SISTERS, SHALL WE DANCE, NOEL, has recently completed principal photography on THE EXONERATED and is currently filming Cameron CroweÂ’s ELIZABETHTOWN.



Her appearances on the small screen include EARTHLY POSSESSIONS, ICE BOUND and DUNE. She provided one of the voices for hit animated features including JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, CATS & DOGS and RUGRATS IN PARIS in addition to narrating the documentary, 900 WOMEN.



Ms. Sarandon has had a notable stage career appearing both on Broadway and off-Broadway in productions of AN EVENING WITH RICHARD NIXON, A COUPLA WHITE CHICKS SITTING AROUND TALKINÂ’, the thriller, EXTREMITIES and THE GUYS.



Ms. Sarandon is one of contemporary Hollywood's most visible activists. She lends her name, time, and presence to many political, cultural and health organizations. Time and again, she has proven to have little interest in fame for its own sake and has utilized her celebrity to promote various progressive causes, narrating or appearing in documentaries and public affairs shows related to such topics. She delighted some and infuriated others when, at the 1993 Academy Awards presentation, she took 28 seconds to speak in behalf of Haitian refugees with AIDS and has been a noted advocate for peace during times of strife.
