Gala September 28 New York City Benefit Cocktail Party & Book Signing to Aid New York Special Olympics and USA Triathlon Association

Gala September 28 New York City Benefit Cocktail Party & Book Signing to Aid New York Special Olympics and USA Triathlon Association



New Book capitalizes on Product Placement like TV and Movies



NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) September 18, 2005



On Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2005 from 7:00 to 9:00 PM a ground breaking gala benefit cocktail party and book signing event will be hosted by the Grand Hyatt New York. (109 East 42 Street/Park Avenue at Grand Central Station, NY, NY 10017)



For the literary world, the event is a first of its kind celebration of the launch of a new novel mixed in with a charity event and product placement for several major businesses. The book, Shadow Warrior is by J E Mayer. (AuthorHouse, 2005) and is available on the publisherÂ’s website (www. authorhouse. com) and via all major online book retailers including Amazon. com and BarnesandNoble. com in paperback format for $14.95.



The event entitled, An Evening into Shadow will benefit the New York Special Olympics and the USA Triathlon Association. (Two of the main characters are triathletes.)



The Grand Hyatt New York is generously hosting the cocktail reception, Ketel One Vodka is creating an elaborate Ice Sculpture Martini Bar with the book cover prominently displayed and the bookÂ’s publisher, AuthorHouse, will provide copies of the book for each guest. The Grand Hyatt New YorkÂ’s executive Chef Anthony Arbeeny will be serving exquisite hors dÂ’oeuvres including Grapes filled with Foie Gras, tuna tartare, honey lavender for the eventÂ’s wide cross section guests including international and New York celebrities, literary luminaries, society swells, and trendsetters.



Ketel One Vodka and the Grand Hyatt are two of the products that are prominently mentioned in MayerÂ’s novel, Shadow Warrior, a thriller that has New York City as its primary setting. It is a tale of romance, intrigue and drugs. Another business mentioned in the book, Porta Bella Menswear, (50 East 42nd St. NY, NY) a chain of clothing stores across metropolitan New York, has also been an early and eager supporter.



“It’s incredible how enthusiastic our sponsors and charities have been,” stated Mayer. “I contacted the Hyatt first and they jumped at the chance to help promote the book. Actually, it was their public relations manager, Kira Kohrherr, whose idea it was to turn my simple suggestion of a book signing into a charity cocktail party. Once the Hyatt was onboard Ketel One graciously agreed to provide the Ice Sculpture Martini Bar. Everything snowballed from there. The USA Triathlon Assoc. has even taken the book on as a special project!”



“This is a bit of a Cinderella story. I put all these goods and services into the story to create vivid images for the reader, little did I know I would be breaking new ground in the promotion of the book,” added Mayer. “We are planning to host similar charity in other locations mentioned in the book including Chicago, Los Angeles and Las Vegas, and offer up participation to several other companies in the book such as Nike, Oakley, Jaguar, and Louis Vuitton.”



Tickets for the event are $50 in advance and $65 at the door. Call the Special Olympics office for tickets: 1-212-661-5217. Complimentary media invitations are available by calling the Steven Style Group at 212-465-1290.

TriVium Systems, Inc. Extends SonicView Product Line With 'Fully Digital Voice Recording'

TriVium Systems, Inc. Extends SonicView Product Line With 'Fully Digital Voice Recording'



TriVium Systems, Inc., a leading provider of Business Productivity solutions for the Converged Communications marketplace, today added Fully Digital Voice Recording to its SonicView product line.



Beaverton, OR (PRWEB) October 4, 2007



TriVium Systems, Inc., a leading provider of Business Productivity solutions for the Converged Communications marketplace, today added Fully Digital Voice Recording to its SonicView product line.



Call recording has become an integral tool in many businesses to meet legal and training requirements, ensure quality assurance and provide proof of calls. With the expanding legal requirements of regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), GLB Act and others, recording phone conversations has become critical to avoid liability and lawsuits.



"The significance of call recording in the Small and Medium businesses is increasing by the day. Call recording used to be a 'luxury' that only large enterprises could afford. That's history now. Small - to medium-sized businesses like informal call centers, insurance offices, credit unions, mortgage and leasing offices etc. now has a affordable voice recording solution through SonicView," said Mathews Manaloor, President & CEO of TriVium.



SonicView provides both desktop solution as well as server based solution depending on the customer needs. A single port personal desktop system can be scaled easily to a distributed system for multiple users with centralized storage and access. The solution can grow with the needs of the company still protecting the investments made incrementally - something that other vendor solutions cannot provide cost-effectively.



The SonicView solutions offer user-friendly search/playback and agent evaluation features. The entire recordings or portions of it can be emailed to interested parties with added bookmarks and notes. "The advanced security features along with the fact that SonicView can record remote workers make it a compelling reason for the SMB's to adopt this solution," added Mr. Manaloor.

Denver Youngster Issues Earth Day Challenge: Kids Give Up Fast Food to Improve Health, Save the Planet

Denver Youngster Issues Earth Day Challenge: Kids Give Up Fast Food to Improve Health, Save the Planet



Colorado Connections Academy Middle-Schooler Launches “Spring into Healthy Eating Challenge”



Denver, CO (Vocus) April 23, 2010



It’s not easy to convince kids to give up fast food, but twelve-year old Koa Halpern wants to do just that. The Connections Academy (http://www. connectionsacademy. com/) middle-schooler is so committed to educating his fellow youngsters about healthy eating that he started his own organization, Fast Food Free, www. fastfoodfree. org, when he was just ten years old. Koa’s goal is to ‘school’ kids on the nutritional, environmental and animal welfare impacts of eating fast food, and to encourage kids to take action personally, and in their schools and communities. To that end, Koa has issued a challenge to kids everywhere – the “Spring into Healthy Eating Challenge.” The challenge, which kicks off on Earth Day 2010, asks kids to sign a pledge to give up fast food for two weeks.



Koa hopes to attract thousands of students to visit his website and inspire them to take the pledge by showing the difference that one person can make by giving up fast food for two weeks. His teachers (http://www. connectionsacademy. com/our-program/online-teaching. aspx) at Connections Academy were so impressed by his initiative, they sent out a letter inviting the school’s 1,200 students to participate. Word spread to other Connections Academy schools (http://www. connectionsacademy. com/our-schools/availability. aspx), and students around the country are now taking the pledge. Having the support of Connections Academy means Koa will be able to communicate his message of eating healthy while protecting the environment to the school’s 20,000 students nationwide.



Koa, a dedicated environmentalist and vegetarian, had never been interested in eating fast food. But when a Korean foreign exchange student living in his home developed a desire for the drive-thru, Koa’s curiosity was sparked. He embarked upon an independent study project and thoroughly researched everything about fast food from the health risks to animal rights violations to the impact on the environment. From that research, a youth-run, start-up organization was born.



“The mission of Fast Food Free is to reduce the consumption of fast food through education and community awareness, resulting in healthier people and a better world,” reads Koa’s website. “Fast Food Free is important to me because of the health risk fast food poses to people, animal rights violations, and the effects the fast food industry has on the environment. Personally, my number one concern is how the fast food industry impacts the world we live in. I don’t want kids growing up obese, I think it's awful for chickens to be packed in cages with no room to move and it's irresponsible to cause the deforestation of any country (like Costa Rica) just to feed the world fast food.”

Koa designed his website from scratch, teaching himself HTML and hand-sketching the graphics. He assembled a board of directors, composed entirely of kids who share the mission of eliminating fast food from our diet and hopes to become an official nonprofit organization – as soon as he is old enough to legally apply.



Attending Colorado Connections Academy (http://www. connectionsacademy. com/colorado-school/home. aspx) allows Koa to balance and blend his education with his real-world interests. The virtual school supports students like Koa who want to pursue outside activities, like the arts, competitive sports, or community involvement, by providing a flexible schedule while delivering a quality education that meets all of Colorado’s state standards. To learn more about Connections Academy and the diverse, active community of students it serves, visit www. ConnectionsAcademy. com.

Symtrimic (L) - A New Combination of Liposuction and a Wellness Program are Developed for Long Lasting Body-Contouring Results

Symtrimic (L) - A New Combination of Liposuction and a Wellness Program are Developed for Long Lasting Body-Contouring Results



Kelly Z. Sennholz M. D., CEO and Medical Director of Symtrimics is proud to announce the launch of an integrated web based health service, pharmaceutical grade nutrition and wellness program which has been specifically designed for patients to address issues that arise before and after liposuction treatments.



Beverly Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 21, 2009



Kelly Z. Sennholz M. D., CEO and Medical Director of Symtrimics is proud to announce the launch of an integrated web based health service, pharmaceutical grade nutrition and wellness program which has been specifically designed for patients to address issues that arise before and after liposuction treatments. The Symtrimics programs focus on the life-long adoption of habits, which help to improve health, lengthen life, establish healthy weight, slow aging and assist with disease prevention. http://www. symtrimics. com (http://www. symtrimics. com) (Symtrimics)



Dr. Sennholz believes the 5 Symtrimics Programs are the bridge between our current medical system and the wellness medicine desired by so many Americans. "By combining Nutrition, Exercise and Social behaviors as an Integrated System, Symtrimics defies conventional thinking and provides physicians and their patients the power to control the future of their health," said Dr. Sennholz.



Symtrimics vanguard program is The Symtrimic (L). The program is broken into a 2-part phase focused around pre and post treatment.



Phase 1 - Phase one readies clients prior to the procedure by developing the required BMI and other health pre-requisites.



Many patients use liposuction as a way to jump-start a healthier lifestyle, using their physical and financial investment in the procedure as motivation to take better care of their bodies. Symtrimic (L) provides a pathway for patients to lose excess weight required for Liposuction, to establish a lifelong pattern to improve procedure results and is a 30 to 90 day pre-procedure program. While excessive dieting is never a good idea, a healthy, nutrient rich diet before liposuction is essential to maintaining a newly sculpted figure.



Commenting on evidence based studies, Dr. Sennholz goes on to say, "There is an abundance of quality research regarding what works in changing human behavior in the wellness genre. Prior systems available have addressed parts of those findings, but not encapsulated them in an Integrated System, as doctors and patients have desired." 



Phase 2 - Phase 2 readies clients post procedure to continuation of healthy habits to maintain the long-term results from their procedure and their desired BMI.



The December 2004 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery® featured the results of a study showing that patients who do not follow a healthy diet after liposuction are three times more likely to gain weight. The top reason for dissatisfaction with liposuction procedure is weight gain. This program ensures ongoing satisfaction and continued connection with the patient.



Symtrimic (L) compliments all liposuction procedures: Tumescent Liposuction Procedure, Laser Liposuction Procedure, Ultrasound Liposuction Procedure and Water Assisted Liposuction.



"We are limiting our distribution for our program; we will be working exclusively with Medical Spas in the United States. There are a lot of "weight loss" programs available; but we see an opening in the market to deliver a comprehensive wellness-based program grounded in science, which truly helps our physician partner and their patients for life," says Dr. Sennholz.



About Symtrimics:

Symtrimics™ provides an integrated wellness and clinic-marketing platform, which consists of five Symtrimic programs. These include an integrated web based service, pharmaceutical grade nutrition, exercise, social, coaching program focused on the life-long adoption of habits that have been proven to: improve health, lengthen life, secure weight loss, slow aging and prevent disease.



Symtrimics has been working in partnership with doctors utilizing the following liposuction techniques and vendors: SmartLipo, Body Jet, UltraSculpt, ZERONA and SlimLipo.

Solar VPS Launches New Cost Effective Managed VPS Plans Including Windows Server 2008 Support



Solar VPS announce the launch of their new lower cost fully managed VPS hosting plans including Windows Server 2008 support for Virtuozzo, and server monitoring service - SolarRAY.



Rutherford, NJ (PRWEB) August 31, 2010



Solar VPS, the leading provider of Windows and Linux Virtualization Hosting and Services, announced today the launch of new lower cost managed VPS Hosting (http://www. solarvps. com/) packages including Windows Server 2008 support for Virtuozzo VPS.



"We've greatly simplified our Solar VPS hosting plans by standardizing both disk and bandwidth allocations across the board. All VPS plans now essentially include FREE 50 Gigabytes of disk and FREE 1 Terabyte of monthly data transfer. The new hosting plans are now differentiated only by their respective RAM allocations and cost. Likewise, it's incredibly easy to upgrade your Solar VPS as the cost of VPS RAM is also standardized across the board. This move will make things much easier for both our current and prospective customers," said Ross Brouse, CEO of Solar VPS.



Solar VPS has also expanded its Virtuozzo VPS service offerings to include Windows Server 2008 (http://www. solarvps. com/windows-vps. php).



"Until today, it was only possible to purchase Windows Server 2008 on our higher end DDS (http://www. solarvps. com/windows-dds. php) platform. We have now expanded our Windows 2008 offering to include both our DDS and Virtuozzo VPS platforms. This means that our customers can take advantage of highly cost-effective Windows 2008 hosting plans that were previously unavailable," said Vice President of Sales, Douglas Hazard.



In addition, Solar VPS has developed new advanced tools for server monitoring that allow both customers and staff to remain in constant awareness of network and server health across all 6 of the Solar VPS worldwide data facilities. The new service monitoring platform called "SolarRAY (http://www. solarvps. com/solarray. php)," is unique in that it is built and maintained in house and therefore allows Solar VPS to work pro-actively to resolve server and network related problems.



"SolarRAY acts like a babysitter for our customer servers. It remains in constant connectivity while alerting us almost instantly in the event that a monitored service fails. This new monitoring infrastructure has allowed us to improve our customer service response times in addition to bringing a greater sense of solidity to our customers. The combination of our new service plans and server monitoring is a recipe for VPS success," said Ross Brouse.

SourceOne Healthcare Technologies and CompuMed Announce Strategic Distribution Agreement

SourceOne Healthcare Technologies and CompuMed Announce Strategic Distribution Agreement



SourceOne will market and distribute CompuMed’s innovative DICOM OsteoGram® software that may be added to existing computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) systems enabling them to perform bone mineral density screening. This new capability will be introduced at the 90th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago (November 29-December 3)at the SourceOne exhibit (McCormick Place South Building, booth # 1919).



Mentor, OH; Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2004



SourceOne Healthcare Technologies, Inc., the nationÂ’s leading distributor of medical imaging systems, equipment, radiographic consumable supplies, and service to healthcare providers, and CompuMed, Inc., (OTC BB: CMPD. OB), a leading developer of computer-aided telemedicine and diagnostics technology in the cardiology and musculoskeletal fields, today announced the companies have signed a new nationwide distribution agreement.



Under the terms of the agreement, SourceOne will market and distribute CompuMed’s innovative DICOM OsteoGram® software that may be added to existing computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR) systems enabling them to perform bone mineral density screening for early detection and treatment of osteoporosis. This new capability will be introduced at the 90th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago (November 29-December 3). The DICOM OsteoGram® will be on display at the SourceOne exhibit (McCormick Place South Building, booth # 1919).



This breakthrough second-generation technology will give SourceOne’s customers the ability to use a simple hand x-ray to precisely determine bone mineral density (BMD) as an indicator of osteoporosis and future fracture risk. The hand x-ray film is scanned at the healthcare provider’s office with a standard desktop scanner, and the Automated OsteoGram® software analysis program instantly produces a BMD report comparable to tests performed on the expensive, dedicated BMD testing equipment generally found in hospitals and specialty practices.



By enabling physicians everywhere to detect bone loss before fractures actually occur, and intervene early in the disease stage with available effective treatments, the Automated OsteoGram can play a major role in reducing the incidence of osteoporosis, one of the worldÂ’s most prevalent and yet preventable diseases.



“One out of every two women over the age of 50 will experience an osteoporosis-related fracture in her lifetime,” said Jerry McLaughlin, CompuMed president and CEO. “Yet many women do not realize that they are at risk for osteoporosis until they suffer a fracture. Recognizing SourceOne’s excellent national distribution capabilities, and because the company is truly dedicated to help improving women’s health, we are excited about the opportunity to provide cutting-edge women’s health imaging solutions with a new partner that understands our technology and complements our organization.”



McLaughlin added, “With an investment that quickly pays for itself, the DICOM OsteoGram® unique add-on solution, transforms an existing CR or DR system into a bone density measurement system. This is a perfect fit for SourceOne’s large customer base of women’s imaging centers, orthopedic offices and hundreds of CR installations.”



“We are committed to improving women’s health,” said Jerry C. Cirino, SourceOne president and CEO. “CompuMed’s DICOM OsteoGram® DICOM enables our customers to provide convenient in-office osteoporosis testing whereby the patient can be easily and quickly tested anywhere that there is an installed CR or DR unit. Our national sales and service capabilities, coupled with a dedicated team of women’s health sales specialists, will enable us to bring the benefits of CompuMed’s technology to aid in the early detection and treatment of osteoporosis.”

International Air Charter to concentrate efforts on markets beyond GCC

International Air Charter to concentrate efforts on markets beyond GCC



Air charter company to attend upcoming Mediterranean Travel Show to explore the Levant, Egypt and North Africa



(PRWEB) August 28, 2004



Having seen healthy growth in sales in the GCC region, International Air Charter plc, one of the worldÂ’s largest independent aircraft charter brokers is now looking towards exploring new markets in the MENA region, namely, the Levant, Egypt and North Africa.



As part of its strategy, the company will attend the forthcoming Mediterranean Travel Fair (MTF) being held between September 14 and 16, 2004 at the Cairo International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Egypt. The company is seeking to network and forge alliances with travel agents, tours groups as well as encourage new operators to explore the Middle East air charter industry.



Speaking about this initiative, Elie Abdo, Director of Business Development, International Air Charter plc stated, “We are looking forward to use our presence at MTF to explore business potential in the Middle East and North Africa. As local business groups expand their operations across the MENA region, we foresee an increasing demand for inter-regional travel.”



Elaborating further, Abdo said, “Egypt’s strategic location between the Levant and North Africa makes it an attractive location for the air charter industry. The country’s own booming economy especially in the IT industry has also resulted in an increase in business travel, both in the domestic and international sector with the entry of multi-national corporations (MNCs). ”



“As independent brokers with the ability to source aircraft from anywhere in the world at short notice, International Air Charter is well-positioned to cater to their travel requirements, be it from the West to the Middle East or vice-versa. We are able to offer our clients extremely cost-effective solutions by sourcing an aircraft closest to their location. Moreover, with charter air travel, busy corporate clients enjoy the advantage of traveling their own pace, without the inconvenience of connecting flights or delays,” he continued.



“There is another aspect to our presence at MTF. Trade fairs and exhibitions offer a platform to meet with potential business partners. As a broker, our business is largely dependent on the availability of aircraft, a factor that we feel needs to be improved on in the region. For example, in the recent summer months we have seen demand far outstripping supply as more families and affluent Western expatriates are travelling back home,” said Abdo.



“As more countries in the region progress towards becoming tourism and business centers in their own right, the demand for specialized services like ours will increase. The entry of more aircraft operators will help fuel the already growing demand and propel the region’s air charter industry towards further growth. We have already had fruitful discussions with a few aircraft operators during the recent Farnborough travel show, who are looking at exploring this region,” he concluded.

Kelley / Uustal Reviewing Low Vioxx Settlements

Kelley / Uustal Reviewing Low Vioxx Settlements



The Fort Lauderdale-based law firm, Kelley / Uustal, is reminding people who suffered Vioxx-induced heart attacks and strokes and are participants of the recently announced $4.85 billion Merck settlement that they have options if their settlements are too low.



FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (PRWEB) January 3, 2008



 "No victim can be forced to accept the settlement, but Merck has included a controversial provision in the settlement agreement that makes it very difficult for victims to say no," said John Uustal, a partner with the firm.



The settlement agreement requires the plaintiffs' lawyers to recommend the deal to all their clients, and to refuse to represent any client who chooses to go ahead with their lawsuit instead of accepting the settlement. As reported in a recent New York Times article, "Merck... wants to be sure that plaintiffs who do choose to go ahead will have to find new lawyers, a process that will probably be difficult because the firms with the most experience in the case are all part of the agreement."



"I just don't like what Merck did here," said Uustal. "It's not fair to the victims. It makes it very, very difficult for victims to find a new lawyer if they don't want to settle. These folks just don't know what to do or where to turn."



One Vioxx victim, for example, is a 62-year-old woman who suffered a debilitating stroke after taking Vioxx every day for three years, who is now paralyzed on one side and can no longer speak, would receive approximately $500,000 under the settlement. After attorney's fees, litigation costs, and especially massive health insurance and hospital liens, little may be left for the victim.



Dozens of factors affect the payout for any individual. Victims can go to http://officialvioxxsettlement. com/calculator (http://officialvioxxsettlement. com/calculator) to find out approximately what the settlement is worth to them.



The plaintiffs have until January 15 to register for the settlement. Vioxx victims who do not want to settle, but are having trouble finding counsel willing to represent them, can contact the Florida Bar, or go to the Florida Bar's lawyer referral service at www. floridabar. org. However, there is no specific listing for firms willing to take non-settling Vioxx cases, according to Uustal.



About Kelley / Uustal



Robert Kelley and John Uustal formed their team of seasoned trial attorneys with more than 50 years of combined courtroom experience and more than 100 jury trials. The firm focuses its practice on securing compensation for clients who have been left physically and/or financially devastated by a catastrophic injury or event. The attorneys have been instrumental in securing more than $250 million in jury awards and settlements for clients. For more information, visit www. justiceforall. com

Doctors are Finding Chronotherapy More Effective in Treating a Wide-range of Diseases

Doctors are Finding Chronotherapy More Effective in Treating a Wide-range of Diseases



The idea that medical treatments can be improved based on when they are given to a patient is called chronotherapy. And by making use of this good timing, doctors are finding that they are more effectively treating a wide-range of diseases such as asthma, arthritis and cancer, all while reducing side effects.



Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 21, 2005



The idea that medical treatments can be improved based on when they are given to a patient is called chronotherapy. And by making use of this good timing, doctors are finding that they are more effectively treating a wide-range of diseases such as asthma, arthritis and cancer, all while reducing side effects.



In a recent news piece on ABCnews. com, it was reported that:



“...Many of our body's internal processes are cyclical. There are daily patterns, like waking and sleeping, monthly patterns, like a woman's menstrual cycle, and even seasonal patterns, like those that cause seasonal-affective disorder (SAD) during the winter months. But doctors are only recently beginning to understand these rhythms' impact on other conditions well enough to more effectively treat their patients. The idea that medical treatments can be improved based on when they are given to a patient is called chronotherapy. And by making use of this good timing, doctors are finding that they are more effectively treating a wide-range of diseases such as asthma, arthritis and cancer, all while reducing side effects.”



"When cancer medications are given in a chronobiological manner, patients may be able to tolerate higher, more potent doses than would be possible otherwise," says Dr. Michael Smolensky, co-author of the book "The Body Clock Guide to Better Health."



Keith Block, MD, one of the nation's leading cancer specialists has been using chronotherapy with his patients since 1999.



“This method of administering chemotherapy is revolutionary and has demonstrated in large randomized trials its potential to improve survival,” states Dr. Block, Dr. Block, who is also Medical/Scientific Director of the Block Center for Integrative Cancer Care and Optimal Health in Evanston, Illinois. “Current research indicates that Cis-Platin is best given between 4 and 6 pm, as opposed to the evening, as advised in the ABC News piece. Adriamycin should peak at 4 am, with a 4 to 6 am infusion window. We have found that often patients receiving chronotherapy reduce what would have been recurring side effects of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fatigue. This is important because the debilitation caused by chemo can cause patients to reduce or even stop treatments that could otherwise help them win their battle with cancer.”



Randy Lopez was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer at 35. Fighting for his life, he underwent chemotherapy that left him weak and debilitated. In less than a year, he received more devastating news – the cancer had metastasized to his liver. The prognosis was grim. In fact, Lopez and his doctors believed he was running out of time. After working with Dr. Block and undergoing chronotherapy, Lopez, now 42, is cancer free. He will attend the September 30th national meeting of the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA) in New York where Dr. Block will address the CCA and explain how even though time was not on Randy's side, timing was literally the key to his successful recovery.



One of the main problems with this type of treatment has been logistics – figuring out how to deliver chemotherapy in exactly timed doses. Dr. Block has brought technology to the U. S. that administers chemotherapy via a pump designed to precisely time up to four channels of infusion simultaneously to the individual needs of a patient. Highly portable and small enough to fit in a fanny pack, patients are able to maintain full mobility, play sports, and enjoy a full night's sleep – while receiving their specifically timed cancer therapy.



Keith I. Block, MD is co-founder and Medical/Scientific Director of Block Center for Integrative Cancer Care and Optimal Health in Evanston, Illinois (www. blockmd. com). Block uses research-based treatment methodologies that combine the best of western medicine with complementary treatments in nutritional pharmacology, psychotherapy, meditation, exercise, yoga, etc. Block is editor-in-chief of the peer-reviewed journal, Integrative Cancer Therapies, published by SAGE Science Press and indexed in MEDLINE and Index Medicus. He serves as Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Chicago, and as Adjunct Assistant Professor of Pharmacognosy (the branch of pharmacology that deals with drugs in their natural state and with medicinal herbs and other plants) in the College of Pharmacy at UIC. In addition, Dr. Block is involved in collaborative research with university facilities in the United States and Israel.

Hotel Punta Islita’s Neighbor Communities Exemplify Costa Rica’s Green Leadership

Hotel Punta Islita’s Neighbor Communities Exemplify Costa Rica’s Green Leadership



ABC Television’s Live Well HD Network’s “Save My Planet” showcases the success of a novel tourism initiative that bridges community outreach, environmental stewardship, and inclusive development.



Nevada, IA (PRWEB) February 26, 2010



The latest installment of ABC Television’s Live Well HD Network’s original program, “Save My Planet” features a special segment, shot on location at Hotel Punta Islita and its closest neighbor, Islita Village. Host Stephen Brooks narrates the fascinating success stories of community members who have transformed their homeland for the better.



For years, the forest surrounding Islita had been stripped through unsustainable cattle ranching, slash-and-burn agriculture, and indiscriminate hunting. At nearby beaches, sea turtle populations dwindled due to poaching practices. As resources were depleted, the area became economically depressed, fueling urban migration and cultural stagnation.



Since its 1994 inauguration, and opting out of enclave business models, Hotel Punta Islita helped to reverse this process. Education, local training and hiring programs, local purchases, and innovative community outreach initiatives, including the creation of an Open-Air Contemporary Art Museum, gradually transformed the area into a thriving collective of travel professionals, artists, and entrepreneurs.



Today, travelers are marveled by an ecosystem where sea-turtle populations are growing and the recovered tropical dry forest and mangroves again teem with howler monkeys and bird species. Furthermore, visitors are greeted by a healthy community, eager to showcase its art, music, and culinary traditions.



"Tourism enterprises are in a unique position to inspire and effect change," said Alonso Bermudez. His personal success story is featured in “Save My Planet” as he details his rise from Front Desk Operator to General Manager. Mr. Bermudez added, “As a business entity, Hotel Punta Islita has been able to leverage and channel resources from the Costa Rican government, philanthropic foundations, other businesses, and even private citizens to support and grow its programs. Hotel Punta Islita provided a spark and my fellow community members responded with enthusiasm. I am thrilled to tell my own personal story and I am proud that the people of Islita set yet another example of Costa Rica’s green leadership.”



Developed by Answers Media, an interactive media production company based in Chicago, Save My Planet is a fun, fast-paced show detailing practical “green living” strategies. The episode featuring Islita can be watched at:



Http://livewellhd. com/savemyplanet/story? id=7255957 (http://livewellhd. com/savemyplanet/story? id=7255957)



Hotel Punta Islita is an upscale beachfront resort set along the coastline of Guanacaste, Costa Rica. A proud member of Small Luxury Hotels (SLH), it is the perfect destination for savvy travelers who seek impressive natural landscapes, friendship-based hospitality, cultural authenticity, and thrilling eco-adventures.



Hotel Punta Islita (http://www. hotelpuntaislita. com (http://www. hotelpuntaislita. com)) and its sister property, El Silencio Lodge & Spa (http://www. elsilenciolodge. com (http://www. elsilenciolodge. com)) respectively feature the best of Costa Rica’s sunny beaches and cloud forests. Both have been featured in top travel publications as exemplary in service, spectacular settings, and commitment to planet-positive, people-friendly practices.

Solstice™ Goji Bars: Ever Wonder What the President Eats?

Solstice™ Goji Bars: Ever Wonder What the President Eats?



Solstice Bakery is proud to announce that President Barack Obama's favorite Solstice™ Goji Bar is the original Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter. Multiple customers have reported seeing President Obama eating Solstice™ Goji Bars, both in his home town of Chicago and on the campaign trail.



Corvallis, OR (PRWEB) February 20, 2009



Solstice Bakery, maker of widely acclaimed Solstice™ Goji Bars, is proud to announce that President Barack Obama is a fan of their meal replacement bars. Multiple customers have reported seeing President Obama eating Solstice™ Goji Bars, both in his home town of Chicago and on the campaign trail.



One customer on the campaign trail noticed how energized then-Senator Obama always seemed to be and spotted him enjoying a "breakfast bar" that he'd never seen before. The customer retrieved the wrapper, was impressed by the wholesome organic ingredients, and placed his first order online. A short time later he called to order his second case, revealing how he discovered his new favorite meal replacement bar.



"My jaw just about hit the floor," said co-founder Reiner Bohlen. "I knew that we had a product that appeals to a wide audience (http://www. solsticebars. com/testimonials), but for the man who would become President of the United States to enjoy our bars… You could have knocked me over with a feather!"



Separately, a retailer in Chicago confirmed that the Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Goji Bars (http://www. solsticebars. com/buy/dcpb) are President Obama's favorite Solstice™ Bar. The retailer told Solstice Bakery how then-Senator Obama gave them a ribbing when the bars had sold out one day. "Where are my bars?" he quipped. "I just ordered a new batch," the retailer replied, "Watch them get here right after you leave." Ten minutes after he left, the new delivery arrived.



It's not just the President of the United States that enjoys Solstice™ Goji Bars. They also have quite a Hollywood and national following: from the set of the newest Indiana Jones film to trendy athletic clubs in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Manhattan, to the gift bags at the Academy Awards (http://www. solsticebars. com/news/solstice-bars-make-red-carpet-debut). Solstice™ Goji Bars are quickly becoming the new "it" bar!



Solstice™ Goji Bars are all-natural meal replacement bars (http://www. solsticebars. com/bars) that blend great nutrition with fantastic taste, primarily because they are hand made in small batches using minimally processed ingredients. Solstice Bakery is so proud that unlike most bars, Solstice™ Bars are packaged in clear wrappers so customers can "See the Goodness!"™ before they buy them.



Each bar has 15 grams of whole grains, 800 - 1300 mg of omega-3 fatty acids, 6 - 9 grams of fiber, 7 - 9 grams of protein, and a full day's supply of antioxidants from Goji berries and Belgian dark chocolate. With whole grains, nuts, and dried fruit, Solstice™ Goji Bars pack more of a punch than their small size would indicate, keeping customers satisfied for hours.



Solstice™ Goji Bars were created by Reiner and Stephanie Bohlen in an attempt at "stealth health" with their 7-year-old son. "How do you get antioxidants and omega-3's into a picky boy?" asks Stephanie, "It was quite a challenge." Eleven recipes later, in the summer of 2006, they had created their top-selling Dark Chocolate & Peanut Butter Goji Bar. Solstice Bakery released their Dark Chocolate, Cherry & Almond Goji Bar in January of 2008, and their Mochadamia™ Goji Bar in October of 2008.



For additional information about Solstice™ Goji Bars, or to inquire about a free sample for press, retailers, or distributors, please contact Reiner Bohlen.

Medical Errors Kill Eleven-Year-Old Boy During Routine Surgical Procedure

Medical Errors Kill Eleven-Year-Old Boy During Routine Surgical Procedure



Alternatively, the former fighter pilots of LifeWings Partners LLC offers an innovative solution to help eliminate medical errors, decrease open malpractice files, improve observed to expected mortality rates, adherence to antibiotic protocols, and nurse satisfaction survey scores.



Memphis, TN (PRWEB) June 5, 2006



Eleven-year-old Justin Micalizzi died during a routine surgical procedure to incise and drain an abscess in his swollen ankle. The incident, reported by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (Facts reprinted from www. IHI. org with permission of © 2006), listed careless medical errors and a sloppy approach to safety protocols as the main reasons for the boy’s death.



Unfortunately, Justin’s death is not an isolated incident. “Forty-two percent of Americans report that they have been personally involved in a situation where a preventable medical error was made in their own care or that of a family member,” according to a study by the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation. Additionally, a recent report released on the Archives of Surgery titled “Incidence, Patterns, and Prevention of Wrong-Site Surgery,” reveals that many standard procedures now used to prevent wrong-site surgery are ineffective.



The hospital where Justin died was not using a proven safety system being adopted by many proactive hospitals to curb excessive patient-harming errors. The system is based on the same training and safety tools that have made commercial aviation so safe and reliable. Developed by the pilots, former astronauts, and physicians of LifeWings Partners LLC, the system is being taught to medical teams in hospitals around the country.



Vanderbilt University Medical Center is a hospital now using the LifeWings safety system. Prior to implementing the system the facility had a “wrong surgery” rate comparable to the national average. After their collaboration with LifeWings the rate improved to ten times better than the national average. These results have earned Vanderbilt the number one spot in patient safety indicators for the 2005 Leapfrog Hospital Quality and Safety survey.



“The LifeWings approach focuses on catching and detecting slips, trips and lapses before they become significant, patient-harming or fatal mistakes,” said Captain Steve Harden, a commercial airline pilot and president of LifeWings. “No human is perfect, but by using an aviation-based system designed to account for human imperfection, these needless accidents, like the case with Justin, can be virtually eliminated.”



Dr. Stephen B. Smith, Chief Medical Officer at The Nebraska Medical Center, another LifeWings client, agrees with Captain Harden, “Although our work is still in the beginning phases, we have already seen instances of errors captured before they affected the quality of patient care.”



To date, LifeWings has trained over 20,000 healthcare faculty and staff. Organizations that have used the LifeWings program have seen a measured reduction in wrong surgeries, a decline in open malpractice case files, dramatic improvements in observed to expected mortality rates, adherence to antibiotic protocols, and nurse satisfaction survey scores.

LifeWings Partners LLC was founded by a former U. S. Navy Top Gun instructor and commercial airline pilot.

Paul Smith, president of Hakins Meetings & Incentives says this is a proactive move into the market to balance the need for trimming fat out of corporate budgets… and menus. “We’ve had numerous requests over the years to make menus healthier, but balancing that with the need to reduce the costs of meetings and incentives required new skill sets and perspective.”

Reflecting corporate concerns about healthy eating at meetings while also managing costs, Hakins Meetings and Incentives – in an industry first – provides the services of a Culinary Institute of America-trained chef to develop menus and manage food and beverage costs for clients.



Paul Smith, president of Hakins Meetings & Incentives says this is a proactive move into the market to balance the need for trimming fat out of corporate budgets… and menus. “We’ve had numerous requests over the years to make menus healthier, but balancing that with the need to reduce the costs of meetings and incentives required new skill sets and perspective.”



Chef David Starace knows how to cut food and beverage fat on budget-conscious corporate events. Starace, a 1979 graduate of the world-renowned Hyde Park, NY Culinary Institute of America with 25 years experience as an Executive Chef and Food & Beverage Director, also understands the pressure hotel kitchens are under to contain costs. That concern competes directly with a meeting planners need to increase food wholesomeness while reducing the costs of feeding the troops at a meeting. “It’s all about balance – helping clients understand the importance of working with a chef to make every meal work. I help balance the realities of both sides of the discussion so everyone wins.”



Hakins Meetings & Incentives has supported the meeting and incentive program objectives of America’s most progressive corporations since 1990. With full-service meeting and incentive planning – from site selection to attendee web registration, airline ticketing, and on-site program management through budget reconciliation – Hakins delivers results through:



 Open Book Pricing  Smart technology focused on cost containment  Industry experience, relationships, and knowledge

Safety Net Clinic: SET Family Medical Clinics’ Comprehensive Healthcare Re-entry Program Makes Re-entry Successful for over 1,000 Ex-offenders

Safety Net Clinic: SET Family Medical Clinics’ Comprehensive Healthcare Re-entry Program Makes Re-entry Successful for over 1,000 Ex-offenders



SET Family Medical Clinics launched a program serving ex-offenders at risk of returning to prison due to lack of access to proper and affordable health care and medication. SET’s goal is to reduce the high recidivism rate of this at-risk population.



Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) July 21, 2010



SET Family Medical Clinics (SET), a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that provides basic medical services and holistic health programs to uninsured, under-insured, homeless and low income people without discrimination, introduced a program serving ex-offenders at risk of returning to prison due to lack of access to proper and affordable health care and medication. Launched in October of 2008, it was SET’s goal to reduce the high recidivism rate of this at-risk population.



SET with its Comprehensive Healthcare Re-entry Program (CHRP) has done just that. The recidivism rate for the state of Colorado is 64%, the recidivism rate for the ex-offenders in the CHRP program is 6%.



Zelna Joseph, President and CEO of SET, is the visionary who established the Comprehensive Healthcare Re-entry Program (CHRP) to provide a community response system for formerly incarcerated individuals. The program begins before an individual is released from incarceration and promotes a comprehensive approach to health care including a mental health component. Collaborating partners include: Open Bible Medical Clinic, Mission Medical Clinic and A Turning Point of Colorado Springs, Inc., Bridge to Awareness and Pikes Peak Mental Health. According to Joseph, “These partners have been working with SET to identify and remove barriers to services which will ultimately help formerly incarcerated individuals successfully reintegrate into our community and avoid returning to prison.”



A current client of the CHRP Program Carl Lugenbeel, states that “If the CHRP Program did not exist, I would be back in prison.” The CHRP Program properly diagnosed his mental health issues, prescribed the correct medications, and got his blood pressure under control. Aside from the health and mental health issues, Carl was brought to tears as he described the attitude of caring and compassion that he felt from the CHRP staff. “I came out of prison with nothing, and SET provided for my basic needs. You don’t know how much I appreciate the hygiene packages that I was given and the information to find other resources to help me,” Carl emotionally added. The CHRP Network of over 50 community service providers offers wraparound services for program participants that include assistance with housing, job placement and connecting with various advocacy groups.

Acai Berry from the Amazon Is Taking the World by Storm

Acai Berry from the Amazon Is Taking the World by Storm



The benefits from eating healthy are endless. And, according to Dr. Nicholas Perricone, some foods can be eaten to help you look and age better. At the top of the list is the acai fruit from the Amazon forest. This little berry is one of the most nutritious and powerful foods in the world. It can often be found in juice form in health food and gourmet stores.



(PRWEB) April 15, 2005



A previously little-known fruit harvested from the Brazilian rainforest is now gaining recognition for its high levels of the cholesterol-fighting fatty acids, Omega 6 and Omega 9, and its strong concentration — up to 33 times that found in red wine grapes — of anthocyanin, a powerful anti-oxidant.



The acai berry is especially noteworthy for the antioxidant properties afforded by its concentration of anthocyanin — which is also present in red wine — that prevents oxidants from harming connective tissue while repairing damaged proteins in blood vessel walls. This helps explain the “French Paradox.” The French, who are noted wine drinkers, have one of the lowest incidences of heart disease of any westernized society despite a diet high in cholesterol and saturated fat.



Monavie Direct, a network marketing company started in 2004, is an emerging market experiencing rapid growth. The company was formed to market a wellness product, the Acai Amazon Berry, in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Singapore and Australia. With 10 times the antioxidants of grapes and twice the antioxidants of blueberries, the Brazilian Acai berry is considered to have the best nutritional value of any fruit on earth.



With each bottle of MonaVie purchased, a portion of your proceeds will be donated to help preserve the Amazon rainforest. MonaVieÂ’s roots are entrenched in the Amazon. The Amazon is a region of superlatives: it spans the borders of eight countries; it is the worldÂ’s largest river basin and the source of one-fifth of the EarthÂ’s freshwater; it has the worldÂ’s highest diversity of birds and freshwater fish; it is the planetÂ’s largest and most luxuriant rainforest in which, amazingly, live more than one third of all species in the world. Despite its natural richness, the Amazon ecosystem is fragile and in peril.



Make a Difference in the World. Drink Life… Drink MonaVie™



We are currently looking for team leaders for the following countries: USA, Canada, Singapore, Puerto Rico, and Australia.



We will be opening many more countries in 2005.



We are currently looking for team leaders to help with International Expansion and we are offering free Signup and free Website marketing systems at no cost to you but for a limited time only. So act soon!

BoostYourCompany Delivers Instantly Team Building, Powerful Leadership and Easy Change Management

BoostYourCompany Delivers Instantly Team Building, Powerful Leadership and Easy Change Management



Improve performance of your company by Increasing consciousness level, improving self esteem, improving vitality, stronger health, radiating the things we want, understanding emotions and balancing them.



Edison, NJ (PRWEB) June 4, 2006



BoostYourCompany adds new opportunities to corporate business culture by integrating practical ancient spiritual know-how. This very new approach to business releases step by step all potential value of your employees. Switch on more capabilities hidden in your employees DNA and make use of their 90% idle brain capacity. Imagine what will happen to the productivity inside your company? And why is this approach instantly? Does it require a lot of financial resources? No, because it removes all resistance and contraction in its real essence: the energy blocks within your employees and the contraction inside your company. Expand the energy of your employees, expand the energy of your company and boost the performance of your company.



Project Organization to introduce Spiritual Management into your business.



First faith in the application of Spiritual Science inside customer organizations needs to be created. By means of a project organisation with a project manager of both the customer and boostyourcompany. The same as like any other business project. This project organisation is responsible for introducing, learning and integrating Spiritual Science, Spiritual Management, Emotion Management and Spiritual Leadership into the customer business practises. For this reason it organises a kick off meeting for managers and organises employees in groups of 10 to 15 employees from several departments or teams. It organizes our training sessions on different locations for all the employee groups. And it maintains a support organization for over a period of 2 years. Support is managed with a Service Level Agreement for email support, phone support and face to face coaching of employees. Five workshops of 2 days are offered in order to make the big change. Customers can decide with the Moscow Priority Principle to what extent they want to train all employees in our complete workshop program or diversify. Ask for integrated 12 page Cost Benefit Analysis Worksheet and create scenarios with all cost and benefit variables. A BoostYourCompany consultant can supply support in this proces.



Install and maintain a higher intuitive consciousness level inside a company.



With a higher consciousness level in the customers organization many decisions will be taken rightly and more intuitively and as such faster. In addition the wave line is synchronized and communications between employees and team members, becomes instantly more effective. Everyone understands each other and less demand for mental discussions and power games. It requires maintenance of new energy fields surrounding individuals by means of 10 minutes daily Sacred Geometry meditation by 64% of all team members. By means of 2 Consciousness Increase Workshops. One to improve employees Self Esteem and one to improve employees Vitality and Immune System.



Put positive feelings in the heart of all management team members to create leadership leading to success.



Communication from the heart is more rich and includes feelings. This feeling determines success or failure. A feeling is the summation of a thought (mind), an emotion (belly), an intention (heart), a body cell nutrient (on breath) and movement (radiation to cells creating the reality or outer world). All employees including managers can learn to erase negative thoughts and associated emotions of resistance. In case their body cells are radiating the things they do not want or the things they fear or the skills they lack. As a result they continually attract the situation they want to leave behind. By means of one Leadership Envision Workshop. Teaching programming your cells with Secret Mantra to radiate success to the outer world.



Emotional Balance creates flexible employees who are less self centred and stabilized.



The company they work with is more important then their own role and position. Understanding Anger, Attachment, Pride, Jealousy and Insecurity and applying opponent powers to harmonize these mental delusions can make a big change in managing employees and successful team building. The 2 objectives of emotional balance: satisfaction and equanimity make change management more easy. By means of training in emotional management all employees can be reached which normally demonstrate 1 out of the 7 phases of one or more of the 5 mental delusions. By means of 2 Emotional Management Workshops which supply tools to harmonize individual employees and utilize a spiritual style of management towards employees.



Customers mentally do not belief it until their teams have experienced it. Train one or more of your teams and try it out. The benefits are at extreme levels both for the company and the individual employee. See our website for benefits at different working processes and hierarchical levels.



Major global companies are in our customer base, who are utilizing their competitive edge to the full extent - by empowering their work force. Before the “Intrinsic Spiritual Value” of your employees” is released a clear cost and benefit analysis can be presented. Certainly for large organizations who want to train over 1000 employees.



Every trained employee will become a:



Brilliant Star:



Influences: “the traits one brings into the job”:



Intelligence, intuition, self esteem, energy, positive attitude, reliability and commitment; no insecurity



+



Balanced Moon:



Influences: “The ability to learn”:



Aptitude, imagination, vision, creativity and how to get things done ;no anger and no attachment



+



Satisfied Universe



Influences: “Ones motivation to share information, knowledge and experience”:



Team spirit, goal orientation, satisfaction and respect; no pride and no jealousy



BoostYourCompany - a Pan European company operating from Spain and the Netherlands with years of training experience both towards companies and individuals. The Spiritual Science we present and has been integrated into customer organizations has its origin in the Egyptian and Tibetan mystery schools. Spiritual Management in its real essence.

Mayo Clinic Health Solutions' Online Health Management Programs Demonstrate Effectiveness in Behavior Change - More Employers Seeking Ways to Improve Workplace Health as Health Care Costs Continue to Rise

Mayo Clinic Health Solutions' Online Health Management Programs Demonstrate Effectiveness in Behavior Change - More Employers Seeking Ways to Improve Workplace Health as Health Care Costs Continue to Rise



Health insurance premiums for 2006 rose 7.7 percent in the United States -- twice the rate of inflation. With employers still bearing most of the burden of health care costs, many employers are seeking cost-effective strategies, such as corporate wellness or employee health programs, to help employees become healthier. By helping employees reduce health risks, employers can better manage health care costs.



ROCHESTER, Minn. (PRWEB) January 19, 2007



Health insurance premiums for 2006 rose 7.7 percent in the United States -- twice the rate of inflation. With employers still bearing most of the burden of health care costs, many employers are seeking cost-effective strategies, such as corporate wellness or employee health programs, to help employees become healthier. By helping employees reduce health risks, employers can better manage health care costs.



A new survey on the impact of Mayo Clinic Health Solutions' online population health management programs shows significant outcomes in helping users make healthy lifestyle changes that can reduce health risks. Survey results representing the experience of nearly 2,000 users of the online health management programs indicate that the programs helped users:



Learn new, healthy lifestyle skills Make positive behavior changes Increase their confidence in their ability to continue healthy behaviors Proactively communicate with their health care provider about specific unhealthy lifestyle behaviors



Enrollees were surveyed in three health management programs -- Fitness for EveryBody, Healthy Weight and My Smoke-Free Future. Key findings include:



Fitness for EveryBody Program



73 percent increased their exercise level 78 percent learned a new behavior change skill that will help in the long-term maintenance of regular exercise 76 percent indicated they are confident in their ability to maintain regular exercise



Healthy Weight Program



53 percent indicated the program helped them meet their weight-loss goal 65 percent are making healthier food choices 76 percent learned a new behavior change skill that will help them maintain their weight loss



My Smoke-Free Future



31 percent quit smoking 38 percent reduced the number of cigarettes smoked 71 percent learned a new behavior change skill that will help them in the future 23 percent made an appointment to discuss smoking with their health care provider



The data also revealed that individuals who participated in more than one program (Fitness for EveryBody and Healthy Weight) were more likely to make healthier food choices than if they participated in just one program.



Online health management programs are an integrated component of the Mayo Clinic EmbodyHealth portal and are a key part of Mayo Clinic Health Solutions' vision for effecting behavior change, as well as for creating smarter, more empowered health consumers.
