World AIDS Day Earns Support of Custom Footwear Brand to Conquer Disease

World AIDS Day Earns Support of Custom Footwear Brand to Conquer Disease



Seifuku, a custom footwear brand, is gaining national recognition through its unique and creative promotional items and its support of causes like World AIDS Day.



Columbus, OH (PRWEB) December 1, 2009



Today is World AIDS Day, and Seifuku, a custom footwear company (http://seifukufootwear. org/) devoted to eliminating illness, disease and hunger with its unique line of footwear products, is encouraging people to conquer AIDS (http://seifukufootwear. org/).



“Seifuku is Japanese for “conquer,” and that is the concept our company embraces,” Mark Hampton, owner of Seifuku said. “Seifuku provides a therapeutic mechanism for causes like World AIDS Day. The idea is for the wearer to take something negative, like AIDS, and place it under their foot, all day stomping out and conquering the negative influence – stomping out AIDS.”



New figures released by the World Health Organization and UNAIDS estimate the number of new HIV infections have declined each year by about 17% from 2001 to 2008, but for every five people infected, only two begin receiving treatment. This year’s World AIDS Day theme is Universal Access and Human Rights. There is a critical link between universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support and respect for human rights in the response to the global AIDS epidemic.



Companies like Seifuku are devoted to supporting and “stomping out” global crises like AIDS. According to Hampton, his company’s goal is to take action to relieve humanity from the causes of suffering.

“At Seifuku, we recognize that HIV/AIDS is a cause of suffering to many, and has the ability to be amplified by human behavior. We strive to promote awareness, attitudes and behavior to the contrary. Taking a symbolic action to wear cause-related footwear helps advocates be aware of the cause and act on it. Our intention is to serve as yet another catalyst to raise awareness for AIDS prevention and awareness, and to have it extend well beyond World AIDS Day.”

About Seifuku

Seifuku (Say-Foo-Koo) is a custom footwear brand, gaining national recognition through its unique and creative promotional items. Seifuku is Japanese for “conquer,” and that is the point our company embraces. Conquer illness. Conquer disease. Conquer hunger. Our unique line of footwear products allows individuals to conquer anything and everything that stands in their way.



The idea for Seifuku footwear grew out of the concept of Feng Shui, an art that includes strategic placement of objects for good luck. While Feng Shui is most commonly associated with the arrangement of furniture in a room to create a more inviting space for both mind and body, the basic principle can apply to almost anything. In this case, the concept is applied to footwear.

Imagine being able to take an extremely negative aspect of your life and place it under your foot, all day stomping out the negative influence – stomping out cancer, stomping out AIDS, stomping out your adversaries. Nearly every culture can trace back in its history a time when great significance was in the notion of keeping enemies or evils underfoot. Seifuku simply applies this principle to the causes and concerns of people in the 21st century.

I. V. Interactive Awarded 2010 Communicator Award for PSANJ. com Redesign

I. V. Interactive Awarded 2010 Communicator Award for PSANJ. com Redesign



I. V. Interactive is delighted to receive a Silver Communicator Award for the website redesign of a leading plastic surgery center, PSANJ. com. Recipients of the awards are hand-selected by a prestigious group of media professionals, including top executives from HBO, Wired, Yahoo and Disney.



New York, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2010



Selected from a pool of over 9,000 companies, I. V. Interactive (http://www. ivinteractive. com/) is delighted to receive a Silver Communicator Award for the website redesign of Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey (http://www. psanj. com/), a leading plastic surgery center in New Jersey and throughout the New York Tri-State area.



The Communicator Awards distinguish excellence in all areas of communication, rewarding "quality and achievement" for outstanding campaigns. Recipients of the awards are hand-selected by a prestigious group of media professionals, including top executives from HBO, Wired, Yahoo and Disney.



I. V. Interactive is honored to receive an award in the field of health care communication for the website redesign of Plastic Surgery Arts of New Jersey (PSANJ).



The decision to have aesthetic plastic surgery is extremely personal, and the new website allows patients to request a consultation and explore procedures such as face-lifts, tummy tucks or body contouring from the privacy of their own homes. From browsing biographies on the board-certified plastic surgeons to the before-and-after photo gallery, PSANJ's redesigned website reaches patients on a more personal and engaging level.



"The health care industry is a complex marketplace, which can make effective communication challenging. But with the right strategy and implementation, a successful website redesign can encourage a more intimate and refined relationship with your current and prospective patients. I'm very proud of what I. V. Interactive and PSANJ have accomplished together," said Dov Radzik, president and CEO of I. V. Interactive.



With New Jersey offices in both Princeton and New Brunswick, PSANJ has seen a significant increase in new patients to its plastic surgery centers. The overall efforts of the website redesign - a combination of user experience and online visibility - have increased new patient leads, despite a struggling economy.



"We are so pleased with the influx of new patients. The redesign of our website and improved search engine rankings have created a refreshing effect on our business. I don't think one effort would have been successful without the other," said Dr. Kevin Nini of PSANJ.



Medical practices throughout the United States come to I. V. Interactive (http://www. ivinteractive. com/) seeking innovative design, interactive marketing, technology implementation and strategic consulting. I. V. Interactive is growing rapidly from customer referrals in the health care industry.

New Washable Computer Keyboard Protects Against Spread of Infection

New Washable Computer Keyboard Protects Against Spread of Infection



Rugged Technologies announces the new affordable Unotron washable keyboard for medical and industrial use.



Windsor Jct, Nova Scotia, Canada (PRWEB) November 17, 2005



Most people would refuse to work if their desk was in a bathroom, yet the average office desktop has 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat. The computer keyboard is a major source of harmful bacteria that can survive as long as 24 hours on the keys.



“In multi-user environments and high-traffic sites like hospitals, schools, hotels, businesses, healthcare and government offices, this poses a potential threat of infection and cross contamination,” says Russ Amiro, President of Rugged Technologies Inc. a Canadian supplier of washable and disinfectable keyboards and mice to the medical and industrial markets.



The first nationwide study measuring normal bacterial levels inside offices revealed that keyboards are among the top five most germ-contaminated spots tested. Study coordinator Dr. Charles Gerber, a microbiologist at the University of Arizona, reported that keyboards are dirtier than toilet seats, and require disinfecting to remove bacteria or viruses.



“Keyboards are hard to clean,” says Amiro “A simple wipe of a rag dampened with disinfectant is not enough. Most of the bacteria remains. Aggressive cleaning can damage conventional keyboards – any liquid which runs into the keyboard can damage it beyond repair.”



“However, we’ve solved this cleaning problem with the affordably priced SpillSpeal® computer keyboards manufactured by Unotron which can be totally immersed in a bath of commercial hospital grade disinfectant” says Amiro. “This keyboard’s patented technology individually seals and protects each key from liquid penetration”



A recent study, conducted at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago and presented to a meeting of the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America, found that keyboards can contaminate the fingers, bare or gloved, of a nurse or doctor who could then transfer bacteria to patients. The study also showed that touching a keyboard even one time was enough to transmit bacteria.



“With the use of bedside computers, hospital settings are especially vulnerable,” continues Amiro, “but classroom, office, and even household computer keyboards are also breeding grounds for harmful bacteria.”



The keys on the Unotron SpillSeal® keyboards never stick or short circuit when in contact with liquid enabling it to be properly and thoroughly disinfected in order to help prevent the spread of infection at home or in the workplace.

ENRONÂ’S SHERRON WATKINS TO HEADLINE 13th ANNUAL FRAUD CONFERENCE & TRADE SHOW

ENRONÂ’S SHERRON WATKINS TO HEADLINE 13th ANNUAL FRAUD CONFERENCE & TRADE SHOW



Sherron Watkins will address attendees of the 13th Annual Fraud Conference & Trade Show (August 4-9, Hollywood, CA) hosted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.



(PRWEB) May 11, 2002



AUSTIN, Texas — For accountants, it’s all about the numbers. And from her position as vice president of corporate development at Enron, Sherron Watkins realized that the numbers just weren’t adding up. Two letters to Chairman Kenneth Lay revealed her awareness of fishy goings-on at the Houston energy giant, in which she pointed out that the accounting methods governing certain accounts were not only unsound, but potentially illegal. Less than four months later, the company was bankrupt, involved in one of the worst financial disasters in history. By coming forward, Watkins, who still works at Enron, has become a reluctant hero.



Sherron Watkins will address attendees of the 13th Annual Fraud Conference & Trade Show (August 4-9, Hollywood, CA) hosted by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners. She will share her story with conference guests and the press in a presentation entitled “Enron: An Insider’s View” at the working lunch on Monday, Aug. 5.



Association Chairman Joseph T. Wells, who invited Ms. Watkins to address the conference, said, “The shocking discovery of widespread fraud at Enron was made possible only because employees like Ms. Watkins were brave enough to accept the fact that ¾ by coming forward ¾ they might be forever tarred as “whistleblowers.” Concerned citizens are not whistleblowers. In fact, at this particular moment in American history, there is no more critical message than this: people have both the right and the responsibility to report wrongdoing.”



On the other side of the fraud fence, former white-collar criminal John Everroad, Jr. will discuss his past misdeeds at the working lunch on Tuesday, Aug. 6. Everroad was convicted in 1999 of embezzling nearly $300,000 from his Nebraska employer and spent 20 months in prison. Also on Tuesday, fraud examiners will learn about the legal trends and new laws that will affect their investigations, in a session presented by the assistant U. S. attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi. J. Scott Newton, J. D., CFE, is also a member of the AssociationÂ’s Board of Regents.



The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners 13th Annual Fraud Conference & Trade Show will be held at the Renaissance Hollywood Hotel in Hollywood, CA, August 4-9. Nearly 1,200 anti-fraud professionals from around the world will be in attendance. The Pre-Conference (Aug. 4) is an executive roundtable entitled “The Face of Identity Fraud”. The Main Conference (Aug. 5-7) includes classes on cyberfraud, banking and health care fraud, financial statement fraud, current issues, and other timely topics. The Post-Conference teaches introductory fraud examination techniques to the entry-level auditor or investigator. Registered members of the media are invited to cover any part of this event. Contact the Association for a press pass and visit www. fraudconference. com for details.



# # #



The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners is an international, 25,000-member professional organization dedicated to deterring fraud and white-collar crime. Since 1988, the Association has been a major resource for fraud information, products, and services. The Certified Fraud Examiner program is an internationally recognized accrediting process for individuals who possess the specialized skills required to detect, investigate, and deter fraud. Identified as “the premier financial sleuthing organization” by The Wall Street Journal, the Association has been cited for its efforts against white-collar crime by media such as U. S. News & World Report, The New York Times, Fortune, ABC-TV’s Nightline and 20/20, and CBS News’ 60 Minutes.

2010 AIA Gold Medal Awarded to Peter Bohlin, FAIA

2010 AIA Gold Medal Awarded to Peter Bohlin, FAIA



Profession’s highest honor goes to architect known for exceptional contextual use of materials



Washington, D. C. (Vocus) December 4, 2009



The Board of Directors of The American Institute of Architects (AIA) voted today to award the 2010 AIA Gold Medal to Peter Bohlin, FAIA. Bohlin, founder of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, which has five U. S. offices, is renowned for his versatile, contextual use of materials.



The AIA Gold Medal, voted on annually, is considered to be the profession’s highest honor that an individual can receive. The Gold Medal honors an individual whose significant body of work has had a lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture. Bohlin will be honored at the 2010 AIA National Convention in Miami.



AIA President Marvin Malecha, FAIA, notified Bohlin by telephone immediately after the Board made its decision. “I’m so pleased and I’m surprised,” said Bohlin. “We all believe in architecture. It is our life to a great extent. Like athletes, we all know that it’s hard work to make it look easy, and we’re all constantly striving to do that.”



Over the course of his long career, Bohlin has designed superlative rural houses, nature centers as well as excellent urban buildings. The key to success for both building types is their contextual use of materials. “He moves from the log cabin to the glass box with the same unassailable ethic that has for hundreds of years defined and shaped an architectural tradition rooted in the exercise of knowledge and made unique only by the personal will, character, and imagination of its creator,” wrote Mack Scogin, FAIA, of Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects, in a recommendation letter.



“His architecture clearly communicates that buildings are not just placed on the landscape, but are part of the landscape and indeed enhance the experience of nature,” wrote Ed Feiner, FAIA, former General Services Administration chief architect, in a letter of recommendation.



Examples of Bohlin’s work includes:

The Ledge House, which builds a serene, natural light-bathed retreat in the Blue Ridge Mountains by arranging a series of timber and stone pavilions in a horseshoe pattern. The William J. Nealon Federal Building and US Courthouse in Scranton, Pa., which subtly integrates a new courthouse building into the original 19th century Neo-Classical facility with a multi-story, sky-lit atrium. The 5th Ave. Apple Store in New York City, a pure, pristine glass cube absent any structural steel that takes visitors below ground, away from its busy urban milieu, and into one of Apple’s flagship retail destinations. The Pocono Environmental Education Center in Dingmans Ferry, Pa., which distills Bohlin’s approach to nature center design to its essence with basic shed massing, a broad, overhaninging roof, natural materials, and a luminous, lantern-like glow from within. Seattle City Hall; its varied curtain wall facades of steel and glass uniquely reflect the solar orientation and urban fabric of each face.



Bohlin and his 200-person practice, which has offices in Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle and San Francisco, have shown a deference to site context and a tendency for design humility that is becoming rarer and rarer among the top tier of practitioners. Again and again, his work demonstrates that great cities, towns, and buildings are created by designers looking to further the story of their place in a collaborative and contextual way, not by singular architecture that calls for heedless and self-serving attention. Awarding the Gold Medal to Bohlin, wrote Scogin in his recommendation letter, would communicate that “architects can in fact address all the complexities of our present day world with the grace and humility that privileges the best of human aspiration.”



Bohlin’s projects have earned 14 national AIA Awards, including COTE Top Ten Green Project Awards, AIA Committee on Education and AIA Housing Awards. He joins the ranks of such visionaries as Thomas Jefferson (1993), Frank Lloyd Wright (1949), Louis Sullivan (1944), LeCorbusier (1961), Louis Kahn (1971), I. M. Pei (1979), Frank Gehry (1999), and Renzo Piano (2008). In recognition of his legacy to architecture, his name will be chiseled into the granite Wall of Honor in the lobby of the AIA headquarters in Washington, D. C.



About The American Institute of Architects

For over 150 years, members of the American Institute of Architects have worked with each other and their communities to create more valuable, healthy, secure, and sustainable buildings and cityscapes. By using sustainable design practices, materials, and techniques, AIA architects are uniquely poised to provide the leadership and guidance needed to provide solutions to address climate change. AIA architects walk the walk on sustainable design. Visit www. aia. org/walkthewalk (http://www. aia. org/walkthewalk).

InsuranceUsa. com Offers Sound Advice to Consumers Looking for Affordable Insurance

InsuranceUsa. com Offers Sound Advice to Consumers Looking for Affordable Insurance



Consumers have a wide variety of options from which to choose when formulating an insurance policy. No matter the type of insurance needed, for example, car insurance or health insurance, InsuranceUSA. com offers some smart suggestions on how to save both time and money when planning and purchasing an insurance policy.



San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2009



In today's tough economic market, consumers are more budget-conscious than ever. People want to be certain that they are getting the most value for every dollar spent. So, when the time comes to purchase a new insurance policy and or perhaps upgrade an existing one, InsuranceUSA. com is ready to provide consumers with policy comparisons and real-time insurance quotes (http://www. insuranceusa. com/).



By being able to compare the same type policy from various companies, along with the corresponding premium costs, consumers can choose the very best policy at the very best price. This saves people time, also, which in this day and age, is a precious commodity.



Each person's situation is different and unique. When planning out an insurance policy, there are many factors which consumers should consider before signing on the dotted line.



With health insurance (http://www. insuranceusa. com/health/), consumers will want to choose a plan which best protects themselves and their loved ones in case of illness or injury. With the cost of medical treatments, both routine and emergency, continuing to rise at an extraordinary rate, it is important to include reasonable deductibles and needed benefits within a policy.



Due to the rising cost of group health insurance, many workers are faced with the loss of health insurance benefits through their employer or are having to cope with greatly reduced benefits. Premiums for individual health insurance (including family coverage) normally are more expensive than those for groups. Comparing costs from different insurance carriers is highly recommended.



When searching for life insurance (http://www. insuranceusa. com/life/), customers need to evaluate income and lifestyle when planning a policy. The number of dependents (and their ages) should be a determining factor when choosing the amount of coverage a person needs. Someone with very young children may decide to purchase a larger amount of coverage than someone who has older children. It is important to remember that dollar amounts can always be changed. Consumers should always keep in mind the ultimate goal - to have a policy which provides the right benefits and coverage at that particular point in time.



Another important fact to remember when purchasing a life insurance policy is that the younger and healthier a person is, the less expensive the premium will be. Therefore, it makes sound financial sense to choose the largest amount of coverage that is reasonable, while at a relatively young age.



Everyone needs homeowners insurance (http://www. insuranceusa. com/homeowners/), including renters. For consumers who own a home, it is important that the policy covers damages that might result from a natural disaster, such as hail and wind, tornadoes and earthquakes. Policies vary greatly, but in many cases, coverage which includes damages caused by earthquakes, floods or hurricanes is considered "extra" and adds more cost to the premium. Consumers who live in areas of the country frequented by these disasters should consider including this type of coverage in the homeowners insurance policy.



People should also include protection coverage against fire, smoke, and the related water damage that usually results from this situation. Remember, too, that premium costs can sometimes be lowered by doing some relatively simple things, such as having smoke alarms placed throughout the home or installing a security system. The monetary amount a consumer needs in terms of coverage can be greatly influenced by not only the value of the home, but also the value of all personal possessions.



When choosing auto insurance (http://www. insuranceusa. com/auto/), rates may depend upon a customer's driving record and also the type of auto which is being insured. If it is a new car being covered, certain "extras" can lower the cost of the premium, such as having an alarm system or daytime running lights. If coverage is needed for a teenage driver, having them successfully complete a driver's education course can help lower the premium cost. Where a person lives also influences the cost of auto insurance. Something as simple as the number of miles a consumer drives per year can affect the overall cost of an automobile insurance policy.

I4Learning Shows Schools the WAY to Fight Childhood Obesity With New Program Launch

I4Learning Shows Schools the WAY to Fight Childhood Obesity With New Program Launch



In an effort to help combat the national epidemic of childhood obesity while meeting national and state education standards, i4Learning is launching Wellness, Academics and You (WAY), a progressive academic curriculum focusing on physical activity and nutrition. The program is being provided free of charge, initially to selected 4th and 5th grade classrooms in Florida, North Carolina, Kansas, and Delaware and subsequently will be expanded across the country.



(PRWEB) February 18, 2004



In an effort to help combat the national epidemic of childhood obesity while meeting national and state education standards, i4Learning is launching Wellness, Academics and You (WAY), a progressive academic curriculum focusing on physical activity and nutrition. The program is being provided free of charge, initially to selected 4th and 5th grade classrooms in Florida, North Carolina, Kansas, and Delaware and subsequently will be expanded across the country.



“WAY is designed to provide a strong academic background for students while addressing the critical issues of overweight/obesity, nutrition, and overall wellness,” says Dr. Sam Spiegel, Director of Research and Development at i4Learning, a leader in the development and implementation of comprehensive prevention programs and strategies (for youth). “We are very excited to be launching the field test…we expect great results from this program – we hope it will really make a difference.”



WAY is a multidisciplinary (language arts, science, mathematics, health, physical education, and social studies), multimedia program that addresses health and wellness issues, emphasizing the areas of physical activity and nutrition. According to program developers, the program meets state and national education standards, is designed after proven, successful models and based on sound theory. It is also supported by research conducted by the Institute for AmericaÂ’s Health (IAH).



WAY consists of 23 activities with traditional academic lessons embedded throughout. As students perform the core activities and supplement the program using a variety of multimedia resources (DVD, CD, and the Internet), they benefit by gaining a deeper understanding of themselves, their bodies, minds, and systems – all from a “wellness” perspective.



“The issues of childhood obesity and overweight are prominent on the national radar and experts across the board are referring to this problem as a ‘national epidemic.’ Some are even saying that this could be the first generation that does not live longer than their parents. We are trying to make sure that that doesn’t happen,” explains Stuart Reese, Interim Director of IAH.



“As part of the national ‘stroke belt,’ it could not be more fitting and appropriate that North Carolina take part in the premier of the WAY program,” adds Artie Kamiya, Senior Administrator for Health and Physical Education for the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) in North Carolina. “With this program, we have the opportunity to transform lives here and we intend to take it… Wake County will be a model for the entire country.”



Several studies suggest a current need for academic programs that focus on nutrition and physical activity. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), over the last 20 years, the incidence of overweight and obese adults in America has risen to epidemic proportions. In 2000, an estimated 64 percent of U. S. adults aged 20 years and older were either overweight or obese. An estimated 15 percent of children and adolescents aged 6–19 years were also overweight. And, the CDC says their research suggests the problem is only getting worse – the most significant concern is that overweight children will grow up to be overweight or obese adults, which increases their risk for major health problems.



Several teachers who participated in the training workshop in North Carolina expressed the same concerns in a blind survey. They say the WAY program is particularly important for the future of the U. S. workforce, noting that healthy children learn better and become healthy, academically prepared adults and therefore, “…a pool of more healthy candidates.” They believe workers who are healthier would increase overall productivity for corporations and reduce health care costs.



“This program will reduce health care costs because of a change in lifestyle. It is an ongoing need for our education system to get involved in setting standards for healthy living,” wrote one teacher.



The program is initially being rolled-out into 36 classrooms, with over 800 students using the program. The launch is a field test that will record changes in student behaviors, like adjustments in attendance, referrals and academic performance, as a result of physical activity and also measure changes in Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is an assessment generally used by physicians and health experts to determine if a person is underweight, overweight or within a healthy weight range that takes height and weight into account to gauge total body fat. The results of the field test will be used to support the program and assist in the ongoing development and design of the program.



“We are striving to provide the WAY program to schools throughout the country free of charge through funding from grants, donations and corporate sponsorships…This is all about the kids, their health and longevity,” says Reese.



IAH is a non-profit organization striving to enhance the health of all Americans through research and education. Their mission is to inspire, motivate and educate youth through educational opportunities, personal encounters, educational resources, and professional development for teachers and parents. As such, they conduct research on learning and behaviors and support efforts to promote public awareness/education on critical health issues to youth by evaluating intervention programs that show promise and providing educational resources and opportunities to classrooms and communities in need. They also conduct outreach, mentorship, and guidance programs for high-risk youth. Youth are actively involved in the development, planning, and implementation of all their efforts and the best technologies are used to enhance their message and effectively reach young people. For more information visit www. healthy-america. org.



I4Learning has been developing and delivering interactive, innovative, integrated, and individualized educational programs that captivate and engage learners since 1998. With the mission of improving the lives and health of youth through education, all of their programs are multidisciplinary, multi-media, interesting, fun and intelligent; and created to enable teachers and parents to enhance their effectiveness in educating, while guiding youth towards a healthy lifestyle. In addition to school-based programs, they also develop community-based, after-school, and home-based programs. For more information, visit www. i4Learning. com.

Celebrities Have Something New To Celebrate This Holiday Season: The New Lemonade Weight Loss Diet Makes Parties a Pleasure

Celebrities Have Something New To Celebrate This Holiday Season: The New Lemonade Weight Loss Diet Makes Parties a Pleasure



The Lemonade Weight Loss Diet offers the ability to stay thin during the holiday season. They help people drop weight, gain energy, gently cleanse and detoxify their systems. These caplets are the Master Cleanse for the 21st Century.



Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) October 27, 2010



How does one enjoy the holidays and get into the celebration spirit without gaining weight? It’s a problem for anyone who loves being social and loves this time of year. Kym Johnson of “Dancing with the Stars” has come clean on her secret to keeping the weight off without giving up her favorite holiday foods. She isn’t talking about fasting, hours of grueling workouts, or passing up all that yummy food. Not anymore. The Lemonade Weight Loss Diet is what Kym and hot celebrities that always need to be camera ready are using to drop weight, gain energy, gently cleanse and detoxify their systems. These caplets are the Master Cleanse for the 21st Century.



People are losing 5,10, up to 17 pounds in just 14 days by taking two tablets with each meal. The Lemonade Weight Loss Diet helps flush away toxins and built up fecal matter. The weight loss and cleansing benefits of this diet can lead to improved health and enhanced well being all from one simple supplement. It’s all natural, fast acting, and simple to use.



”I’m a very social person,” says Kym Johnson with her infectious Australian enthusiasm. “There’s no way I’m going to give up going out with my friends or saying no to parties and celebrations from Halloween, right through ringing in the New Year.” So how does she do it without seeing the numbers on her scale go sky high? “Now, it’s simple,” she confides. “I just take 2 caplets three times a day. I am enjoying the foods I love, but feeling full faster, and my body is being detoxified on a daily basis. It’s brilliant!” she proclaims.



With The Lemonade Weight Loss Diet, there is another reason to celebrate the holidays, and lose weight at the same time.



Does The Lemonade Weight Loss Diet Work?



Baron Brooks, a well respected nutritional expert, explains why The Lemonade Weight Loss Diet is such a powerful detox and diet combo. “There is some very sound reasoning behind the science of The Lemonade Weight Loss Diet. Let me tell you the specific benefits that each ingredient can give you,” he explains.



Grade B maple syrup contains a variety of minerals and vitamins. These include iron, chlorine, potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper, phosphorus, sulfur and silicon not to mention Vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C. Also present is Pantothenic acid, a type of B-Vitamin that can lower cholesterol.



Including good quality maple syrup in the formula actually provides you with many of the vitamins and minerals that you need during a cleanse.



Lemons are used to produce more bile in the liver, trapping fat molecules and allowing them to be easily eliminated; they also help to decrease your appetite.



Cayenne pepper increases metabolism and aids digestion. It is also a good source of Vitamins A, B, C, Calcium and Potassium.



“The Lemonade Weight Loss Diet is the Master Cleanse for the 21st Century,” states Brooks. “It packs a bunch of powerful benefits into a small pill. It speeds up your metabolism, cleans your internal organs, and helps you lose weight and even helps you feel healthier!”



“It’s the no mess, no stress, and weigh less diet!” insists Kym Johnson. For more information please visit http://www. lwldiet. com.

First Aid at your fingertips

First Aid at your fingertips



Introducing MOBIMEDIC the modern way to learn basic first aid anywhere, anytime



(PRWEB) October 19, 2005



How well would you cope in a medical emergency? We all understand how important it is to act quickly, but how many of us actually could? Well, help is at hand as vital first aid advice is now available via your mobile phone with MobiMedic, an interactive service that downloads data directly to the user’s mobile. The concept has proved so successful that a version of MobiMedic called Mobi-First-Aid is already being sold by the Red Cross.



A sudden medical emergency can happen anywhere – in the street, at work or when visiting some far-flung location. Being some time from access to professional medical support when the worst happens can frightening, so it is worth being prepared.



Whether it’s an accident such a serious cut or burn, or the sudden onset of a heart attack or severe allergic reaction, taking the right action in the all-important first few minutes can quite literally mean the difference between life and death. And while statistics show that as many as 95 per cent of people have little or no practical first aid training, most of us do now have access to a mobile phone, and because you carry it around with you, it is an ideal way to improve your skills. 



MobiMedic uses the same Java technology used for games on the latest generation of mobiles. A mix of visuals, text and interactive prompts takes users through standard first aid procedures, using their input to advise what action should be taken next. Downloading the guide and working through the scenarios is an easy way to learn the first aid techniques, covering the 21 most common first aid situations, based on official statistics.



The emergencies covered by MobiMedic range from dealing with a choking victim to serious cuts, burns, broken bones, asthma and allergy attacks and poisoning.



All the content is taken from Government guidelines on first aid, and has been checked and verified by the Health & Safety Executive. The downloaded information is stored permanently on the phone, making it available to users whether or not the phone is within signal range. Users can also regularly update the data held on their phone to ensure that they have access to the latest advice.



Very much a Scottish success story, The Mobi concept is the brainchild of a group of graduates of Dundee University, who spent three years developing the technology. The creators have brought version MOBIMEDIC to the market in partnership with Medi-Scot, an online, NHS-supplier of medical equipment.



Charlotte Hall, the British Red Cross First aid Products Manager, says: “Sound first aid knowledge can make all the difference in an emergency. This is an important reference and learning tool to enable people to educate themselves about what to do should they need to respond to an accident and or medical emergency.



“The fact that the information is always with you means you can access the l information whether you are in signal range or not - even in the wilds of Scotland or the Australian outback!”



Jim Withers, from Medi-Scot, the company behind the concept, says: "First and foremost MobiMedic is a reference and learning tool to help people educate themselves about first aid.. However, the flexibility of the technology means that it is also there with you if you do indeed need to respond to an emergency".



The technology used to create MobiMedic also has a wide range of other applications.: “We’ve already completed MobiMechanic and MobiPet, and our next project is the development of Mobi Driving Theory Test. The list of potential Mobi-variations is endless" concludes Jim.



To download MobiMedic all you have to do is visit one of the following websites and follow the on-screen instructions www. medi-scot. co. uk/magi. html (http://www. medi-scot. co. uk/magi. html); www. redcross. org. uk//standard. asp? id=41094&cachefixer= (http://www. redcross. org. uk//standard. asp? id=41094&cachefixer=); www. genmedical. com



For further information please contact: Jim Withers



Editors Notes:

Blog on Nation's First Puppy Supports National Canine Cancer Foundation. One Out of Every Three Dogs Affected by Cancer

Blog on Nation's First Puppy Supports National Canine Cancer Foundation. One Out of Every Three Dogs Affected by Cancer



On the blog "Bo The First Puppy-In Bones We Trust," a fictional Bo barks his support to raise money and awareness for the National Canine Cancer Foundation. One of every three dogs is affected by cancer.



Denville, New Jersey (PRWEB) June 1, 2009



On the blog "Bo The First Puppy-In Bones We Trust," a fictional Bo barks his support to raise money and awareness for the National Canine Cancer Foundation. Bo's blog is at http://bothefirstpuppy. wordpress. com (http://bothefirstpuppy. wordpress. com). The fictional First Pet also has a Twitter account.



"I know you people things get cancer," Bo The First Puppy barked, "And it is very devastating. But did you know one out of every three dogs gets cancer? My four-legged friends need help, too," he added.



The National Canine Cancer Foundation is a national non-profit corporation dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health issue for dogs. The organization funds grants to cancer researchers who are working to save lives, find cures, and devise better treatments and accurate, cost effective diagnostic methods in dealing with canine cancer.



Bo, the First Puppy of the United States, barks blogs about his family life, raising donations and awareness for his favorite charity, the National Canine Cancer Association, and his new role as Spokes Dog for Obama Watches.



The nation's First Puppy was quick to point out that he is not officially associated with the resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. "Oh, no, but I know all about Top Dog. I've seen him on that box," Bo yelped.



"I also don't work directly for the National Canine Cancer Foundation. You know, I'm just a puppy dog trying to help."



Bo has come up with a dog-gone clever way to raise money for the National Canine Cancer Foundation. He's selling watches with his picture on it.



"For only $45, you people things can buy a BO THE FIRST PUPPY watch. It has my picture on it and two pink paws to signify my support for the National Canine Cancer Foundation, " Bo barked. "The watch also has my catch phrase: 'In Bones We Trust.'"



Ten percent of the profit from the sale of BO THE FIRST PUPPY watches will be donated to the National Canine Cancer Foundation.



"Even if you don't fetch a watch, I hope you'll send a donation to help rid the world of canine cancer," Bo woofed. "Their Web site is so easy to remember. It is wearethecure. com."



In the interest of transparency, Bo revealed he has pawed an agreement to become the Official Spokes Dog for Obama Watches, a Web site (www. obamawatches. com) that launched a viral campaign supporting Barack Obama's candidacy in the 2008 election.



Obama watches carry phrases like "America, It's Time for a Change," "Yes We Can," and "Love your Mama. Vote Obama."



Three Obama watches are in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History.



During the campaign, Obama watches were given to teachers, students, bus drivers, Obama campaign workers, and a host of "A List" celebrities and politicians, including Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Terry McAuliffe, Hillary Clinton's campaign Manager, and Craig Newmark, founder of Craigslist. They were all asked to spread the word that it was "Time for a Change."



A member of the Democratic Party asked Jack Goldenberg, President, Obama Watches, to give an Obama watch to then-Senator Barack Obama at a private fundraiser in Philadelphia. But an alert Secret Service Agent grabbed the watches out of Goldenberg's hands and whisked them away. The watches were inspected, deemed harmless and given to an Obama aide.



On the blog "Bo The First Puppy-In Bones We Trust," the fictional Bo declared that raising money and awareness for the Canine Cancer Foundation has become my pet project. You know, he added, "If we all work together, we are the cure."



Then Bo, America's First Puppy closed his eyes, took a dog nap and dreamt of cats. The musical, not the animal.

A Girl Named Guy Productions Explores Iridology with Renowned Iridologist Sally Kravitch

A Girl Named Guy Productions Explores Iridology with Renowned Iridologist Sally Kravitch



Leah talks with Iridologist Dr. Sally Kravitch about the fascinating information that the eyes can tell us.



New York, NY (PRWEB) September 28, 2006



This week on www. AGirlNamedGuy. com creator and host, Leah Guy, discusses the fascinating world of Iridology -- the study of the eye’s irises to determine health issues. In this unique review of an Old World practice, Dr. Kravitch explains the benefits of iridology, as well as its history and rise in America.



The practice of Iridology began in 19th Century Hungary, by Dr. Ignatz Von Peczely. Later, it was brought into the modern world by Dr. Bernard Jensen, who created the standard charting system that iridologists now use to diagnose some of our greatest health concerns.



The color within the eyes speaks volumes about a person’s health. Muddled irises can belay a host of nutritional deficiencies that not only affect the body, but can also change the true color of your eyes! As Dr. Kravitch explains, Iridology does not determine specific illnesses, but can help individuals pinpoint areas of the body that are in need of attention. In an impromptu setting, Dr. Kravitch demonstrated her ability by reading the irises of Leah and her crew. What she discovered in Leah, Adam, and Josh is indicative of America’s dietary concerns: More vegetables, less coffee; more exercise, more less carbohydrates.



Learn more about this interesting practice in addition to several new articles written by Leah and her experts in the field of health and wellness at www. AGirlNamedGuy. com.



Www. AGirlNamedGuy. com’s mission is simple: Inspire a healthier, happier world. The site's tagline, "Life's a Gift...OPEN IT!" offers any and all takers the unique personal promise of a new, exciting way of living well. Producer Leah Guy accomplishes this with common sense and entertaining presentation. “I couldn’t be happier with the site,” says Guy. “It brings together all aspects of my passions and interests, while making a positive difference in people's lives. A Girl Named Guy is here as the liaison; to help answer questions, provide current information and entertain the viewer!"

Med Sculpt™ Cellulite Reduction Technology Exclusive Distribution Agreement Announced

Med Sculpt™ Cellulite Reduction Technology Exclusive Distribution Agreement Announced



“The Ultimate in Body Sculpting” Technology is a liposuction alternative designed to Redefine, Reshape and Rejuventate.



Irvine, CA (PRWEB) January 5, 2006



Alderm, N. A. LLC, announced that it has been appointed by General Project, s. r.l., of Florence, Italy, as the exclusive distributor in the United States of the Med Sculpt™ cellulite reduction technology and system. Alderm N. A.'s Med Sculpt™ (FDA clearance expected January 2006) is a revolutionary new system for cellulite treatment and sculpting body contours. The Med Sculpt™ system has been successfully used in Europe to treat cellulite. Med Sculpt™ represents the latest advancement in computerized, non-invasive, cellulite reduction technology.



Med Sculpt™ provides aesthetic professionals a new alternative in reducing cellulite which in the past required invasive liposuction surgery. This new "external liposuction" therapy uses ultrasound and computerized massage to break down fat cells which the body then disposes of naturally. Further, patients have no downtime and can return to their normal activities while completing the treatment. This is a major advantage over liposuction which requires total sedation and weeks of recovery time.



The fastest growing trend in medical aesthetics is the non-invasive treatment of cellulite. "Studies have shown that up to 80% of adult women have some form of cellulite and the Med Sculpt™ represents an effective and simple means for health care professionals to treat this condition," commented Jim Kraushaar, CEO of Alderm N. A., "Becoming the exclusive distributor of the Med Sculpt™ in the United States is an exciting opportunity for us to introduce this state-of-the-art technology."



Discussing the appointment of Alderm N. A. as its exclusive American distribution agent, Moreno Naldoni, Managing Director of General Project stated, "After an extensive selection process we chose Alderm N. A. as our exclusive distributor because of their proven record of introducing and successfully marketing innovative medical aesthetics systems such as IPLs and lasers into the American aesthetics market."

 · don't have a big department full of Operational Risk experts

This webinar is going to focus on:



· Specific challenges that exist in the SME financial institution

· Delivering value on a shoe string - is it possible?

· How to put the focus back on Risk Management rather than Compliance

· The tools that deliver the most value to an Operational Risk Manager with a limited budget

  Business Unit Profiling (Top-Down Assessment)   Risk and Control Self Assessment (Bottom-Up Assessment)   Key Risk Indicators (KRIs)   Risk Event Capture and Analysis   Action Management   Risk Reporting



The Operational Risk webinar is aimed at:



  Chief Risk Officers   Operational Risk Managers   Operational Risk Professionals   Business Line Managers

Food Safety Lawyer Fred Pritzker Calls for Wisconsin to Drop Bill that Would Allow Raw Milk Sales

Food Safety Lawyer Fred Pritzker Calls for Wisconsin to Drop Bill that Would Allow Raw Milk Sales



National food safety lawyer Fred Pritzker is calling on the Wisconsin Legislature to kill a bill that would allow public sale of unpasteurized milk.



Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) March 31, 2010



National food safety lawyer Fred Pritzker is calling on the Wisconsin legislature to kill a bill that would allow public sale of unpasteurized milk.



The Wisconsin bill that would allow raw milk sales direct from farms licensed by the state runs counter to what the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have been warning for decades: Raw milk is a health hazard that can cause serious illness and wrongful death.



"This legislation would not only allow a dangerous product into the stream of commerce, some proponents want the bill to carve out almost all liability for raw milk producers,'' said Pritzker, a leading food poisoning attorney who has represented victims of contaminated raw milk. "This would be virtually unprecedented and dangerous. If supporters think raw milk is so safe, why do they want immunity from lawsuits?''



Even if the bill moves forward without the immunity clause, America's Dairyland would be setting a shameful example for the rest of the country by passing a law that its own public health officials have labeled as irresponsible, Pritzker said.



With microscopic fecal contamination from cows unchecked by pasteurization, outbreaks of foodborne illness linked to raw milk are inevitable.



Less than a week ago, FDA alerted consumers to a raw milk Campylobacter outbreak in Michigan (http://www. pritzkerlaw. com/campylobacter/michigan-campylobacter-family-farms-cooperative. html) associated with products from Forest Grove Dairy in Middlebury, Indiana (http://foodpoisoning. pritzkerlaw. com/archives/campylobacter-michigan-raw-milk-campylobacter-outbreak-prompts-illinois-warning. html). At least 24 people have been sickened in the outbreak and state epidemiologists from Michigan, Illinois and Indiana have been joined by FDA in their investigation of the outbreak.



The federal agency said in its latest consumer alert that contaminated raw milk was to blame for 1,614 illnesses in the U. S. from 1998 to 2008. Two of the victims died and 187 were hospitalized.

The FDA advisory said harmful bacteria in raw milk is especially dangerous for pregnant women, the elderly, infants, young children and people with weakened immune systems. Besides Campylobacter (http://www. pritzkerlaw. com/campylobacter/), raw milk can carry E. coli O157:H7, Salmonella or other potentially lethal pathogens spread by the feces of cows.



"It's irresponsible for the Wisconsin legislature to give farmers the choice of selling raw milk when science has proven that raw milk is no more nutritious than pasteurized milk,'' Pritzker said. "It's a trap that will inflict an enormous toll on families who will be stricken by illness.''



Mr. Pritzker is a nationally recognized food safety lawyer who has represented victims in practically every major outbreak of food poisoning in the U. S. He has recovered millions for victims of campylobacteriosis and other foodborne diseases. For more information, contact Fred Pritzker at 1-888-377-8900 (TOLL FREE) or 612-338-0202, email Fred at fhp(at)pritzkerlaw(dot)com or visit our website, www. pritzkerlaw. com (http://www. pritzkerlaw. com/). The firm represents food poisoning victims nationwide and has offices at Plaza VII, Suite 2950, 45 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN.
