Renowned Spiritual Mentor Heals the American Zeitgeist, One Mind at a Time



Gary De Rodriguez may be a saver of souls, but it is his groundbreaking approach to the science of the psyche that has enabled personal salvation for so many. According to De Rodriguez, each of us can permanently heal as well as help to shield our planet from darker days ahead.



Santa Fe, NM (PRWEB) March 29, 2006



Gary De Rodriguez may be a saver of souls, but it is his groundbreaking approach to the science of the psyche—not blind faith—that has enabled personal salvation for so many. While mentoring others toward deep inner change and spiritual healing has been his life’s work, this professional coach knows it is intellectual discipline and indeed science that paves the way toward achieving life fulfillment. And now, through his boutique-style training seminars held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, others in the helping professions can acquire the tools De Rodriguez has honed for twenty-five years, the most notable of which is Neuro Linguistic Programming or “NLP.” 



According to the principles of NLP, to feel better one must first know better. By releasing stale paradigms—by shedding the old stories we carry with us like security blankets through the corridors of our lives—we can access the normally untapped power of our minds. Once this happens, possibilities for change abound as the subconscious mind begins to mirror the positive instead of the negative. While those who practice NLP understand that thought patterns can be prophetic, they also believe that harmful thoughts can be identified and permanently changed, thus effecting a different reality. The results are life transforming.



De Rodriguez should know. If the school of hard knocks could elect a valedictorian, he would win by a landslide. The biracial child of an alcoholic family in 1950s America, De Rodriguez spent the first eighteen years of his life searching for the pill that would allow him to escape the slow torture of his existence. Drugs, incest, abuse, and a codependent relationship with his suicidal mother took De Rodriguez to the brink of his own death more than once.



Then, in his late teens, he had a spiritual revelation. Within twenty-four hours, De Rodriguez quit smoking, drinking, and doing drugs. But this was not enough to quiet the deafening dialogue of self-hatred and shame that had haunted him his entire life. De Rodriguez traveled to India and began studying meditation under a Sikh known as a “Perfect Living Master.” After living in northern India intermittently for eighteen years, De Rodriguez returned to North America permanently, burning with the desire to bring hope and healing to a spiritually ill society.



In the mid eighties, De Rodriguez aligned with his cohorts to launch the first HIV/AIDS support organization in San Diego. Through his work with the AIDS community, he discovered Neuro Linguistic Programming, a relatively new technology developed to help people overcome patterns of pain and suffering and ultimately reach their highest potential. De Rodriguez had uncovered his gift, and his prayer to effect change in a world desperate for healing had finally been answered.



“Heaven or Hell happens between the ears,” says De Rodriguez. “To find Heaven you must stop worshipping at the temple of your story—of your past—and focus on where you want to go in the future. NLP shows us how to move through our stories, move through our pain, and rewrite the future according to our authentic desires.”



In developed nations, mental health disorders are reaching epidemic proportions. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), depression will rank second only to heart disease as the world’s most crippling health problem. Rodriguez knows that North American society has the ability to turn this around, “but it will not happen en masse,” he says. “It will be through the ripple effects of intention and education in the personal change technologies such as NLP. These technologies for personal and professional expansion were not available to previous generations, but they are readily available to individuals and professionals alike today. We now have the ability to heal spiritual wounds and shield our planet and ourselves from the darker days that may lie ahead.”

A licensed trainer of Neuro Linguistic Psychology and founding member of the International Society of Humanistic Neuro Linguistic Psychology, De Rodriguez holds a Master certification in hypnosis and has trained throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico and Australia. De Rodriguez is the founder of the Neuro Linguistic Training Center and the Life Design Training Center in San Diego.

Mr. Reeves recently released this statement to the media regarding his addition of AG Media Group to his personal and corporate portfolio -"Our newest Portfolio Builder, AG Media Group - AMGJ, owns one of the most valuable pieces of real estate in the world. When it comes to real estate, we naturally think of everything from dirt to skyscrapers.

I can't encourage you enough to get your arms around AG Media. The opportunity to take the gospel to the corners of the world, and be blessed financially for doing it, is awesome.

Food Bank Celebrates Honor of Charity Navigator “Top 10 Slam Dunk Charities” Recognition

Food Bank Celebrates Honor of Charity Navigator “Top 10 Slam Dunk Charities” Recognition



Northern Illinois Food Bank continues to add more successes to their already impressive list of honors. In addition to the recent recognition as the “Food Bank of the Year” by Feeding America, the nation’s network of food banks, NIFB is honored to announce that for the seventh consecutive year they have achieved a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. Fewer than 2% of charities nationwide have achieved such a high distinction. Charity Navigator is America’s largest charity evaluator. The four-star rating is based on the organizations’ ability to efficiently manage its finances and grow its programs.



Saint Charles, IL (Vocus) October 12, 2010



Northern Illinois Food Bank continues to add more successes to their already impressive list of honors. In addition to the recent recognition as the “Food Bank of the Year” by Feeding America, the nation’s network of food banks, NIFB is honored to announce that for the seventh consecutive year they have achieved a four-star rating from Charity Navigator. Fewer than 2% of charities nationwide have achieved such a high distinction. Charity Navigator is America’s largest charity evaluator. The four-star rating is based on the organizations’ ability to efficiently manage its finances and grow its programs.



NIFB recognizes that donors are becoming more attentive to how their contributions are being used by non-profits of their choice. Over 96.5% of every dollar goes towards the Food Bank’s mission to provide nutritious food to all those in need through their own efforts and those of their non-profit partners. NIFB CEO and President, H. Dennis Smith explained, “We understand that donors want their donations to be used efficiently and provide the greatest amount of help possible to people in need. NIFB is proud to deliver both.”



“Given the increased scrutiny and pressure charities are under in these tough economic times, we are extremely pleased to achieve this high distinction. We are currently in the midst of a capital campaign to address the growing need for hunger relief in the communities we serve, and we realize that donors want to know that we are using their gifts judiciously” Smith continued. In addition to providing much needed food handling and distribution space, the new building will foster better health within the 13 counties served by the Northern Illinois Food Bank by instructing and encouraging better use of food and financial resources.



The Food Bank has seen exceptional growth despite the dire state of the economy. In FY10 they distributed 35 million pounds of food which is an 8 million pound increase over the last year. This is at a time when record numbers of people find themselves in need of food assistance. In addition to stepping up their general efforts to address the exploding need by people across northern Illinois, the Food Bank has also provided over 1.1 million meals to children in need in FY10. That represents an increase of more than 20%, year over year, to help combat the severe and long term effects child hunger has on individuals, families and communities. “We are invested in not only the communities that we serve but each one of our clients,” said Smith.



About Northern Illinois Food Bank:

Feeding America’s Food Bank of the Year, Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) is a non-profit organization that provides food to all those in need through its 520 partner agencies in 13 counties including - Boone, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Ogle, Stephenson, Will and Winnebago. Northern Illinois Food Bank acquires, gathers, handles, and distributes donated, government, and purchased food to more than 61,000 different people each week through local food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, youth activity centers and other food assistance sites. In Fiscal Year 2010 NIFB distributed over 36.5 million pounds of food. The Food Bank has recently launched a Capital Campaign to build a new Food Distribution and Community Nutrition Center to enable them to handle more food more efficiently to meet the increasing demand.

Before you take that next driving trip with your canine friend or even drive across town to the park to play catch, buckle up your pooch just like you would yourself and your family. The Muttslinger Canine Vehicle Restraint System is specifically designed to keep your dog secure while traveling in a vehicle. There are many hazards when traveling with your pet.

Any of these could lead to injury or death for your pup or people in your car.

FDA Initiative to Improve Safety of Infusion Pumps Not Recall for Plastic Surgeries in Time for Swimsuit Season

FDA Initiative to Improve Safety of Infusion Pumps Not Recall for Plastic Surgeries in Time for Swimsuit Season



Goal of initiative to minimize risks--pain pumps remain safe, effective way to control postoperative pain, according to local surgeon. Dr. Leo Lapuerta states the pain pumps are beneficial and are great for patients looking to get a surgery done in time for summer.



Pearland, TX (Vocus) July 15, 2010



In April 2010, the FDA recently began an Infusion Pump Improvement Initiative to address some safety issues related to many models of pain pumps, but this should not be confused with a recall or ban. Dr. Leo Lapuerta of the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas says it's important for patients to understand the benefits of infusion pumps; especially this time of year when cosmetic surgeries go up for the swimsuit season.



An infusion pump is a device for delivering a controlled, consistent dose of medicine. They are commonly used to deliver local anesthesia to a surgical site to control discomfort during the immediate recovery period. When used for this purpose, they are often referred to as "pain pumps."



The FDA action is not a recall or ban of infusion pumps, but an attempt to make pain pumps even safer. According to the FDA white paper it is part of "a balanced public health approach" in which "FDA seeks to support the benefits of infusion pumps while minimizing the risks." As part of the initiative, the FDA seeks to:

 Establish additional requirements for infusion pump manufacturers  Proactively facilitate device improvements  Increase user awareness



With the ultimate goal of "[supporting] the safe use of these vital medical devices."



According to Dr. Lapuerta, the "take home message" of the FDA action is that patients should pay close attention to postoperative instructions. "Problems with a pain pump are rare, but we will tell you what to do in the event that your pain pump does experience a problem during use."



"We commonly use a pain pump after tummy tuck procedures," adds Dr. Lapuerta. "A tummy tuck is major surgery and can result in significant discomfort during recovery. In my opinion, a pain pump is better--and safer--than using narcotics to control discomfort after surgery."



According to Dr. Lapuerta, the benefits of using a pain pump include:



 Patients can go home the same day of surgery  Pump makes recovery more comfortable  Provides better pain relief than narcotics  Results in less nausea than narcotics  Works continuously for 72 hours  Numbs surgical area without affecting entire system like oral narcotics  Better recovery for people who need to be at least minimally active during recovery



He also notes that the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas follows FDA and manufacturer guidelines for the safe use of pain pumps.



About Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas



The Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas is the private practice of triple-board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Leo Lapuerta. It offers a wide variety of plastic surgery procedures such as breast enhancement, body contouring, and facial plastic surgery. Dr. Lapuerta serves patients in the Houston area at three locations: 1919 LaBranch, 11800 Astoria Boulevard, and 2360 County Road 94 in Pearland. Dr. Lapuerta is board certified in general surgery, plastic surgery, and surgery of the hand. He has hospital privileges at several area hospitals. Dr. Lapuerta is also the director of the Clinical Skin Care Center.

Alzheimer's Foundation of America Applauds Inclusion of Cognitive Impairment Detection in Healthcare Reform

Alzheimer's Foundation of America Applauds Inclusion of Cognitive Impairment Detection in Healthcare Reform



Eric J. Hall, president and chief executive officer of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) issued the following statement regarding the inclusion of cognitive impairment detection as part of the new annual wellness for Medicare beneficiaries in "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" that was introduced last night:



New York, NY (PRWEB) November 21, 2009



Eric J. Hall, president and chief executive officer of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America (AFA) issued the following statement regarding the inclusion of cognitive impairment detection as part of the new annual wellness for Medicare beneficiaries in "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" that was introduced last night:



"On behalf of the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, and our more than 1,200 member organizations, we thank United States Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NE), Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus (D-MT) and Senator Tom Carper (D-DE), who spearheaded the provision, for including 'detection of any cognitive impairment' as a component of the new annual wellness visit for Medicare beneficiaries in 'The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.'



"AFA originally advocated for inclusion of cognitive screening back in May when the Senate Finance Committee released its second policy options paper. AFA pressed for screening in light of the escalating incidence of Alzheimer's disease among aging Americans and mounting evidence that early diagnosis of memory problems is critical to appropriate treatment, behavioral interventions and support services.



"Early detection of memory problems is one of AFA's major national initiatives, and the Senate health reform language comes on the heels of our annual National Memory Screening Day (NMSD). This past Tuesday more than 2,200 sites nationwide offered free confidential memory screenings to an estimated 54,000 participants, as well as follow-up resources and educational materials about dementia and successful aging. AFA additionally posts community screenings held by local organizations throughout the year at www. nationalmemoryscreening. org.



"A memory screening can serve as a routine, cost-worthy evaluation for primary care physicians to promote early detection of cognitive impairment. A memory screening is a simple and safe evaluation tool that assesses memory and other intellectual functions. The results do not represent a diagnosis, but individuals with below-normal scores or who still have concerns are strongly encouraged to follow up for a full medical examination. Validated memory screening instruments are shown to demonstrate 80 to 90 percent or higher accuracy in reviewed studies--similar to other established screening tests such as mammography and Pap smear.



"AFA believes this groundbreaking provision is a major step forward toward elevating the issue of memory problems as well as Alzheimer's disease and related dementias to the stature it deserves. Unlike cancer and heart disease, Medicare currently offers no benefit for early identification of memory problems or Alzheimer's disease and related dementias. The provision for 'detection of any cognitive impairment' is included in a section of the Senate bill that would give Medicare beneficiaries access to an annual wellness visit, including a comprehensive health risk assessment to identify chronic diseases, injury risks, modifiable risk factors, and urgent health needs.



"It is widely recognized that physicians and other healthcare professionals currently do not suspect dementia often enough. It is unacceptable to leave the disease undetected to the extent it is now when there are safe tools available that can lead to an increase in earlier discovery. We can do better and we applaud Majority Leader Reid, Chairman Baucus and Senator Carper for showing us that it can and should be done."



The Alzheimer's Foundation of America is a nonprofit organization based in New York City that focuses on providing optimal care to individuals with Alzheimer's disease and related illnesses, and their families, and unites 1,200 member organizations nationwide that provide hands-on programs. AFA's services include a toll-free hot line with counseling by licensed social workers, a free caregiver magazine, a National Memory Screening Day initiative and the AFA Quilt to Remember. For information, call 866-AFA-8484 or visit www. alzfdn. org.

DrErika Clarifies the PCOS Issue that Scares Hundreds of Thousands of Young Women and Their Mothers

DrErika Clarifies the PCOS Issue that Scares Hundreds of Thousands of Young Women and Their Mothers



"Too many young women with their mothers come to see me scared out of their wits by doctors who tell them their daughters will become diabetic, infertile and possibly even victims of cancer,'' writes DrErika, the founder of www. DrErika. com - a site dedicated to helping women become strong, smart and healthy through education, empowerment and kindness.



New York, NY (PRWEB) December 30, 2007



Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) has become the "diagnosis du jour" for conventional doctors at a loss for why teens have irregular periods, become overweight, suffer with acne and become too hairy, according to the latest blog from Erika Schwartz MD at DrErika. com. (http://www. drerika. com/blog;jsessionid=9373DA07496ED2754E304FD3E4785D02?action=viewBlog&blogID=-129710233462640030)



These diagnoses create a slew of unnecessary treatments and tests that scare the young women and their mothers into a state of panic without providing them with healthy solutions and hope.



"Too many young women with their mothers come to see me scared out of their wits by doctors who tell them their daughters will become diabetic, infertile and possibly even victims of cancer,'' writes DrErika, the founder of www. DrErika. com - a site dedicated to helping women become strong, smart and healthy through education, empowerment and kindness.



Polycystic ovary syndrome is a hormonal disorder with symptoms such as irregular menstrual cycles, weight gain, increased facial, arm and leg hair and sugar cravings. DrErika says not all PCOS is the same. Since every person is different, PCOS is just a diagnosis and while in some cases, the whole constellation of symptoms associated with the syndrome is apparent, in most cases it is not. Make sure you take a realistic and honest look at what is really bothering your daughters. Don't let the doctors tell you what the symptoms are. Look, listen and speak with your daughter.



In her blog, DrErika lists the medications most frequently recommended for PCOS and says that they are dangerous and of no proven help to the individual symptoms or the overall problem. Instead she recommends treatments that her patients use which have a high level of success and no negative side-effects.



Www. drerika. com is dedicated to providing an honest view on health care topics and issues from a position of devoted patient advocacy. It doesn't tailor its stories to suit sponsors - it has no sponsors.



DrErika is an internationally-recognized patient advocate, practicing physician, expert in conventional and integrative medicine and a frequent guest on TV and radio. She has written four books, lectures on health and wellness issues and authored a magazine column read by more than 10 million people a week.

Free Western Astrology Natal Chart And Vedic Astrology Janam Kundali Software Only On MysticBoard. com

Free Western Astrology Natal Chart And Vedic Astrology Janam Kundali Software Only On MysticBoard. com



Everyone knows that a person's natal chart or birth chart tells more about the person than one can ever guess. But how does one draw this chart up even when all the birth details are known? How does one understand where to place the planets and stars in the chart? Worry no more; the Astrology Chart Softwares from MysticBoard. com can make life and complex calculations easy.



Stone Lake, WI (PRWEB) October 24, 2007



Swetha Lodha, the CEO of MysticBoard. com - the leading esoteric website, proudly announces the launch of a few important astrology chart softwares - MB Free Astrology Natal Chart Software (http://www. natalchart. info/ (http://www. natalchart. info/)) based on Western Astrology and MB Free Janam Kundali Software (http://www. janamkundali. org/ (http://www. janamkundali. org/)) based on Vedic Astrology. A combination of both Western and Vedic Astrology can be obtained in MB Free Birth Chart Software (http://www. birthchart. biz (http://www. birthchart. biz)).



On the occasion of the launch of these fantastic astrology resources, Swetha Lodha, the CEO of MysticBoard. com was ecstatic that her team's hard work has finally paid off. Swetha said, "I have been a keen follower of astrology related subjects, be it Western or Vedic astrology. But almost all the calculations associated with astrology are very complex for a person with no knowledge of astrology to do on his own. This was when I felt the need to develop these softwares."



Swetha adds, "I don't want people giving up understanding and learning this wonderful subject just because they cannot understand the complex calculations. Mystic Board has launched these softwares for free hoping to interest more people in understanding this amazing science. Moreover, today good astrology softwares cost an arm and a leg, making them almost impossible for an average person to possess. And good Vedic Astrology softwares are even rarer to find or to buy." She further says, "Developing these softwares wasn't an easy task, keeping in mind the complex nature of the subject. But this was a challenge that we took up and we have come out with flying colors. If people gain positively from them, we shall feel that our efforts have been put to good use."



Natal chart or birth chart is one of the most indispensable constituents in the study of astrology. Using the information that the birth chart gives, one can forecast all important incidents and probable opportunities that can arise in life. But calculating the natal chart is also not a very easy task. Thus MB Free Astrology Natal Chart Software (http://www. natalchart. info/ (http://www. natalchart. info/)) has been introduced to help people in their quest of charting their horoscope. This program which has its basis on the principles of Western Astrology, gives the accurate astronomical locations of planets at the time of an individual's birth.



Vedic Astrology (also referred to as the Hindu Astrology or Indian Astrology) is said to have originated from The Vedas, which are arguably the oldest scriptures in the world today. The Vedic system of astrology is regarded as the oldest of all schools of ancient astrology to have had an independent origin.



The Janam Kundali or the Vedic Natal Chart of an individual gives a clear insight to a person's personality, strengths and weaknesses and many other aspects, which can be predicted with pin point accuracy. When interpreted correctly remedial measures as and when needed can be taken. MB Free Janam Kundali Software (http://www. janamkundali. org/ (http://www. janamkundali. org/)) generates the Vedic Natal Chart or the Rashi Chart in the North Indian, South Indian and East Indian styles which can then easily be analyzed by experts.



Precision is a major factor when doing astrological calculations and when asked about the accuracy of the software, Swetha says, "Our softwares have been acknowledged to be highly accurate, reliable and have been appreciated by many expert astrologers on the board. Getting the calculations right has taken time and lots of patience to achieve." She proudly continues to say, "We have also already started research and development of more new Astrology softwares related to planetary periods, divisional charts and compatibility charts. Add all the above to a whole range of Western Astrology Softwares - the zodiac sign softwares, compatibility softwares and horoscope softwares - and you have a "never-before-done-or-attempted-and-absolutely-free" suite of Astrology softwares and resource."



But it must however be remembered that Astrology is not the ultimate fate; it is the study of the various cycles which provides a person with a definite edge. Using this mathematical and predictive science to know more about a person and use it to his advantage is what man has an edge over. This is what Mystic Board aims to achieve by launching these Online Astrology Chart Softwares.

Speedheat Enhances Green Building Efforts with New Generation4 Electric Radiant Floor Heating

Speedheat Enhances Green Building Efforts with New Generation4 Electric Radiant Floor Heating



Since 1985, Speedheat® has helped create healthier environments, conserve energy and efficiently warm up cold spaces. As a world-leader in the radiant floor heating industry for over 20 years, Speedheat® offers many 'green' advantages and promotes efficiency and conservation through avoiding waste. Their newest systems use very little energy to operate and run on electricity, a renewable resource.



Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) February 22, 2007



Can 'green building' really make you healthy, wealthy and wise? To many builders and homeowners, the answer is a resounding yes. As residential green design concepts have become more mainstream, there is a growing movement to find unique products that improve indoor air quality, reduce energy costs and protect the environment all while enhancing personal comfort.



One unique 'green' product that is growing in popularity is electric radiant floor heating (http://www. speedheat. us/comfort_benefits. htm) by Speedheat®. Their Generation4™ underfloor warming systems simultaneously promote health, conservation, safety and comfort, making them an ideal choice as a green building product. Although the concept of radiant heating has been around since Roman times, Speedheat® has taken this technology to the highest level with their energy efficient systems that are installed directly under virtually any flooring material.



"Speedheat® has always promoted conservation, efficiency, health and comfort," explains Pieter Jansens, Chairman of Speedheat International. "Since 1985, we have been educating consumers on the many benefits of electric radiant floor heating. Our proprietary G4™ systems are extremely efficient, so they help conserve energy, and they are powered by electricity, which is a renewable energy source. Speedheat's advanced floor warming systems also promote healthier environments and create luxurious warmth that enhances personal comfort. For all these reasons, Speedheat® (http://www. speedheat. us) is a smart choice to enhance green building initiatives."



Radiant Heating by Speedheat® is a Healthy Choice:



Green building and remodeling projects often address improving indoor air quality. In fact, poor indoor air quality is ranked as one of the top five environmental risks to public health by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Studies also indicate that air pollution inside the home can be two to five times higher (and occasionally 100 times higher) than the air outside the home.



Speedheat's Generation4™ underfloor heating (http://www. speedheat. us/home. htm) systems can help improve indoor air quality by reducing the levels of dust, pollen, mold, allergens and other pollutants spread by conventional forced air heating systems. The Department of Energy also says that radiant heating can be advantageous to people with severe allergies due to the lack of moving air.



Additionally, Speedheat's Generation4™ (http://www. speedheat. us/prod. htm) systems provide optimum thermal comfort at lower temperatures than conventional forced air heating systems. Lower air temperatures contain a lesser amount of moisture, which helps prevent the growth of mold and reduces the level of other air pollutants, thereby creating a healthier environment.



Conserving Energy with G4™ Systems is a Wealthy Choice:



The famous phrase "a penny saved, is a penny earned" certainly applies to energy conservation efforts. With heating costs continuing to rise, lowering the thermostat and installing energy efficient products and systems makes good fiscal sense from a green building standpoint.



In fact, the Radiant Heating and Cooling Handbook calculates that for every 10 degrees the thermostat is lowered, energy consumption is reduced by approximately 40 percent. While saving energy is desirable, staying comfortable is also important. With floor heating by Speedheat®, consumers can enjoy the best of both worlds.



"Because Speedheat's Generation4™ systems warm from the ground up, they produce evenly heated rooms that are more comfortable at lower temperatures," explains Peter Newman, President of Speedheat U. S. "When Speedheat® systems are installed throughout a home, users can easily reduce the thermostat by 10 degrees or more and still remain comfortable."



Additionally, because Speedheat's ultra thin Generation4™ heating element is optimally engineered to be 'in touch' with floor finishes, it warms floors faster than any other electric radiant floor warming systems and at lower, safer temperatures, so it uses less energy to operate.



Environmentally Friendly G4™ Products are a Wise Choice:



Green design promotes the concepts of sustainability, use of fewer natural resources, as well as the selection of materials that reduce energy demands, lower home maintenance costs and help protect the environment…all while addressing the occupant's desire for improved comfort.



Speedheat's Generation4™ systems use clean, electric energy that is a fast growing renewable resource. Speedheat® systems consume less energy to operate than conventional systems, so they lower energy demands. Generation4™ systems are solid-state and require no maintenance. They do not wear out and need never be replaced, making them better for the environment. G4™ systems also don't produce any odor, fumes, smoke, and they are silent.



In addition, only Speedheat's G4™ systems feature the patented PTCSelfControl™ self-regulating element (http://www. speedheat. us/tech. htm) that helps prevents overheating. The flexible heating element is the thinnest in the industry at less than 1/16" in diameter, and the multi-stranded core is protected with a tough outer sheath to resist abrasion and corrosion. All Speedheat® products have undergone rigorous testing, including complete submersion in water while energized. All systems feature a full-surround ground screen that is an effective EMR, EMI and RFI shield, and GFCI protection provides absolute electrical safety. Speedheat's products are all UL-listed and National Electric Code (NEC) compliant.



Speedheat® Makes it Easy to be Green:



Speedheat® is easy to install at any time, in any room and under virtually any floor covering (carpet, stone, floating wood, laminates, vinyl and more). Speedheat® is the ideal choice for new construction as well as kitchen renovations, bathroom remodeling, sunroom additions and basement finishing projects. Other G4™ products include TileWarm™ (http://www. speedheat. us/tile_warm. htm) woodBEwarmer™ (http://www. speedheat. us/woodbewarm. htm) and CarpetMate™ (http://www. speedheat. us/carpet_mate. htm).



Speedheat® also offers a unique "zone heating" option called RugBuddy™ (http://www. speedheat. us/rug_buddy. htm) -- the only UL-listed heating mat in the world, approved for use under area rugs. RugBuddy™ is a portable heating blanket that plugs into a standard electrical outlet. It is an ideal solution when installing fixed radiant floor heating is not an option. Like an electric blanket for the floor, RugBuddy™ instantly turns area rugs into invisible space heaters and is an ideal floor warming solution for cold spots in any room of the home or office.

Northern Illinois Food Bank recognizes the difficulty faced by many in providing proper nutrition to their families with limited resources.



According to the United States Department of Agriculture (U. S.D. A.), two-thirds of U. S. adults are overweight or obese. The U. S. is also seeing record numbers of children who are plagued by the side effects of carrying extra pounds. Obesity has been proven to contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes. The American Diabetes Association (A. D.A.) reports that 90-95% of diabetes cases are type 2. Many cases of type 2 diabetes are believed to be preventable.



“We know from studies, by the A. D.A., and U. S.D. A. that diabetes and obesity contribute to the occurrence of heart disease, stroke and death amongst other serious health complications,” says Northern Illinois Food Bank CEO and President, H. Dennis Smith. “We have grave concerns that low-income families are more vulnerable to falling into unhealthy eating patterns; not by choice but because they have smaller food budgets and, consequently, a decreased ability to purchase healthy food items. The addition of our Community Nutrition Center and Kelly will enable us to focus more attention to the nutritional needs of our clients.” Smith added.



In addition to overseeing the day-to-day running of the Community Nutrition Center, Brausseur will expand the Food Bank’s efforts to influence healthy food choices through existing participation in several county initiatives as well as participating in others. Currently, NIFB has an active role in Lake County’s “Be Well”, Kane County’s “F. O.R. W.A. R.D” and DuPage County’s “Fit for Kids”.

Feeding America’s Food Bank of the Year, Northern Illinois Food Bank (NIFB) is a non-profit organization that provides food to all those in need through its 665 partner agencies in 13 counties including - Boone, DeKalb, DuPage, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Ogle, Stephenson, Will and Winnebago.

Vacation Rental Fit for a King: At Hale Lele, Ancient Hawaiian Hospitality Continues Today

Vacation Rental Fit for a King: At Hale Lele, Ancient Hawaiian Hospitality Continues Today



A Hawaiian villa fit for a king is now available as a vacation rental--if you are willing to pay the minimum stay price of $5,000. And the story of the beach home is just as grand as the house itself.



Kihei, Maui, Hawaii (PRWEB) November 15, 2003



A Hawaiian villa fit for a king is now available as a vacation rental--if you are willing to pay the minimum stay price of $5,000.



And the story of the beach home is just as grand as the house itself.



In 1995, C. W. Henderson, a Southern entrepreneur, came upon the perfect spot in Maui for a contemporary Hawaiian villa. The house would be designed by his friend Rod Rodriguez, a New York City designer noted for his celebrity clients in Florida, Georgia, New York, Hawaii, and Las Vegas, Nevada. The resulting Hawaiian-styled Pacific Ocean property would eventually come to be known as “Hale Lele.”



HendersonÂ’s decision to create a beach mansion on Maui's South Shore (known as the "Gold Coast") in the town of Kihei, led him to purchase a building originally containing six condominium units. Today, the reconfigured four-level Hale Lele contains a grand two-level, 5,000 square foot modern Hawaiian home, plus an additional 5,000 square feet in three separate contemporary Hawaiian living spaces: a guest unit, the owner's unit, and the caretakers unit. The home has five kitchens and 15 bathrooms, plus all the bedrooms, laundries, workshops, TV rooms, lanais, and living areas you'd expect--in a style reminiscent of what a Hawaiian king's beach estate might be.



Most of the villa, a 4,500 square foot area, is available as a vacation rental for a mere $1,000 per night at the "best seasonal rate," with a five day minimum. During high season, a larger 6,000 square foot area is $2,500 per night. A mere $5,000 can give your family the best Hawaiian vacation ever.



The villa Web site is at http://www. DeluxeRental. com (http://www. DeluxeRental. com), and its host can e-mailed at Vacation@DeluxeRental. com.



A Hawaiian Design Legacy



 While the incomparable beauty of Hale Lele is the result of the combined creative talents and vision of several men including Rodriguez, Henderson, two Hawaiian architects, and a French-inspired Hawaii landscape designer, Timothy DeShong---it is Hale Lele itself which continues to be the centerpiece of a contemporary Hawaiian design legacy. This great house is one of the largest private residences on Maui. It is operated as a legal vacation rental and is valued, including its contents, at well over five million dollars.



 Begun in 1984, Hale Lele is constructed of tons of steel and concrete. A noted Hawaiian construction engineer said, "Long after the Maui we know is gone, Hale Lele will remain." Some structural elements were part of the original shipments from Europe and Asia used to construct the nearby Grand Wailea Resort. Fine woods shipped from Canada and the Pacific Northwest joined locally-acquired Hawaiian timber. It took dozens of workers more than five years to complete the remodeling.



 This month, in May, 2003, Henderson launched a Web site for the villa and formally opened the doors of the finished home for the first time to vacation renters. On into the 21st century, Hale Lele will remain a monument to contemporary Hawaiian architecture, showcasing C. W. HendersonÂ’s original and extensive collection of unique furnishings, art and antiques.



 Henderson, visionary publishing entrepreneur and artificial intelligence pioneer, is a Renaissance man, fluent in the language of business and widely traveled. He is knowledgeable and conversant about art, architecture, music, outdoor sports, agriculture, horticulture and journalism. He grew up in the impoverished Deep South, was a former tobacco farmhand, school basketball player, and Eagle Scout who went on to be voted "Most Likely to Succeed" in his Georgia high school senior class. After turning down a college music scholarship, he earned a University of Georgia journalism degree in 1971. He soon joined TriStar Pictures and became a successful motion picture executive and TV screenwriter, producer and director. His passion, however, was artificial intelligence-inspired journalism, and in 1984, he founded the medical and pharmaceutical publishing giant NewsRx. Large parties at his Atlanta penthouse are legendary, and were frequented by well-known music industry and motion picture celebrities.



 It was in Atlanta that Henderson first met Rodriguez. The celebrity designer remodeled a home for Henderson in Atlanta's tony Druid Hills, a national historic district, where the street plantings and parks had been designed by Frederick Law Olmstead, America's most famous landscape architect. It was while traveling to Japan with Rodriguez, during a rest stop in Hawaii, that Henderson discovered, in sunny Maui, the building which would become Hale Lele.



 The two men journeyed throughout the Southern United States, Hawaii, and Japan, purchasing paintings, hand-carved bowls, sculptures, silk rugs, and furniture during the years Hale Lele was being remodeled. Henderson even journeyed to Hawaii's "forbidden island" of Niihau (with the island's owner, of course) for ideas. Henderson's diverse and cultured tastes are now on display in this great house. His intent--to construct a casual beach estate that he imagined would be built by Hawaiian King Kamehameha the Great if alive today-- produced the huge collection which furnishes Hale Lele. Indeed, it is the nature of the collection, reflecting Henderson's interests and tastes, which guests and visitors find most fascinating.



 Inside the house, artworks by famous Hawaiians and Asians adorn the walls and floors, some items dating to the 1100s. The furniture includes Japanese travel chests, handmade Inuit chairs and tables, and a Flemish Wardrobe from the 1600s, objects like those which filled Captain Cook's quarters as he sailed the Pacific. One bedroom grouping is rumored to have been used by Elvis during the filming of Blue Hawaii. An ornate chair had Marilyn Monroe sitting in it when it was at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood... at least, they say so. Early Hawaiian collectables and vintage art deco furniture from colonial Vietnam also can be found. A dozen Thai silk rugs from Jim Thompson, Thailand's Silk King, cover floors while fresh flowers from the property's Hawaiian gardens decorate the rooms. A 12th century Buddha occupies a niche on the main floor.



 Upstairs on the fourth and top level, in addition to a quiet reading area and a TV-game room, guests can enjoy the "whale watch," comfortably observing the largest creatures of the sea at play in the ocean, which is a mere 60 steps away.



 Fully air conditioned, Hale Lele is considered one of the finest residences ever built on Maui. It is admired for its innovative engineering, solid construction from concrete and steel, and its exquisite site which maximizes views of the volcano known as Haleakala, "The Cove," one of Hawaii's premier surfing spots, plus extraordinary sunset and Pacific Ocean views which include the Islands of Lanai, Molokini, Molakai and Kaaholawe.



 Henderson wanted his beach home to provide family and friends with lifeÂ’s recreational pleasures: a heated swimming pool, flat panel big-screen TV room, and the beauty of both sunrise and sunset from extensive lanais, plus protected, connected, direct access to the Pacific oceanÂ…"at the ocean", without the problems and lack of security of lesser houses "on the beach", among the hoards of beach-going visitors.



Hawaiian Version of a Great Italian Villa



 Guests who are lucky enough to occupy Hale Lele as a vacation rental, get to see “behind-the-scenes” life in upscale Hawaii: life at its finest in one of Maui's largest mansions, or as many have described it, the Hawaiian version of a great Italian villa.



 While Hale Lele, the house, is the focal point of the compound, it is clear when you walk the grounds and visit the lanais that the genius of Rodriguez and DeShong are an integral part of Hale Lele. Their sweeping landscape provides a fitting backdrop for this magnificent villa. Rare yellow beach-side bamboo grows side by side with Hawaiian plants, with vines and flowers blooming year round. Rodriguez' secret zen garden provides a quiet place to meditate. A DeShong-designed water wall is frequently cited as the most "image setting" aspect of the front grounds. A modern sculptured "Hawaiian waterfall," the water wall is a monument to DeShong's creative landscaping genius. So, too, are the thoughtfully-designed gardens and paths.



 In keeping with the Henderson tradition of entertaining in style, todayÂ’s guests at Hale Lele are treated, not only to the elegance of a 21st century Hawaiian estate, but to the epicurean pleasures of living like Hawaiian royalty. Scarlett DeShong, former spa manager at the luxurious Four Seasons Resort in Wailea, Maui, is available, on-site, to provide epicurean and recreation advice. As a former Maui coordinator of Hawaii's state-wide health, recreation, and fitness initiatives, she can tell you where to hike, exercise, "be pampered," or buy great, fresh local foods or locate fine wines for Hale Lele's unique wine "cellar," formerly a Hawaiian canoe turned keeper of award-winning wines. The villa maintains dozens of cases of fine wines, some from Maui's own vineyards and winery.



 Rodriguez-inspired touches at Hale Lele include the unique grand entrance stairway, designed in the ancient Hawaiian style: expansive steps at the bottom, gradually narrowing to cozy comfort at the formal entry of the home. Inside, you will find his inviting great stairwell and luxurious two-story open spaces lighted by romantic customized lighting and integrated custom sound systems. Out back, find the unique pool arbor, changing room and spacious and private outdoor "open to the stars" shower.



 Across from Hale Lele is an awe-inspiring and private beach area where visitors can enjoy a leisurely stroll, kids can frolic in the majestic Pacific, or one can sit peacefully with a glass of wine and watch the sun slip quietly into the ocean.



 For those looking for even more, there are dozens of recreation, dining and shopping opportunities within walking distance in the charming beach-front town of Kihei, one of Maui's most showcased settlements.



 Hale Lele is located in sunny South Maui near the Wailea Resort, at the intersection of the narrow and hidden beach-front road known as Iliili and the manicured grass-covered beach-walk called Lele Place (a Maui County beach access).



 In Hawaiian, "Hale" is house and "Lele" is leapÂ…so "Hale Lele" is "the home at Lele Place," a short jump or leap into the waters of the Pacific.

ALine Introduces New Microfluidic Technology to Aid in Life Science Research

ALine Introduces New Microfluidic Technology to Aid in Life Science Research



ALine's newest family of ultra-low volume, disposable UV transparent micro-fluidic cuvettes for fluorescence, the FluoroVetteTM, and absorbance, the SpecVetteTM, offer unparalleled functionality, robust design, and versatility through customization with membranes, electrodes, and valves.



Redondo Beach, CA (PRWEB) March 11, 2008



ALine's newest family of ultra-low volume, disposable UV transparent micro-fluidic cuvettes for fluorescence, the FluoroVetteTM, and absorbance, the SpecVetteTM, offer unparalleled functionality, robust design, and versatility through customization with membranes, electrodes, and valves. Both offer easy-fill pipette ports or hose barb adaptors for flowing applications. ALine's unique family of microfluidics cuvettes work in standard laboratory instrumentation, such as a spectrometer or sit nicely on a microscope stage. Rapid and cost effective customization expands the possibilities of bio micro fluidic research.



FluoroVettes hold 50 microliters with nanomolar range fluorescence detection sensitivity. The rugged, and high quality design provides a cost savings of 90% over traditional quartz sub-micro cuvettes. The patent-pending design eliminates air bubbles, can be used as a flowcell, with UV transparency to 220 nm. Customization further permits applications for bead-based displacement assays or membrane based reactions or as a dual chamber design for diffusion experiments across a membrane. The thin transparent window permits high magnification on a microscope stage, while the universal adaptor permits ready interface to a standard single sample fluorimeter.



The SpecVette, for absorbance, is available in path lengths of 250, 500, 1000 microns, and only requires a few micro liters of sample solution, eliminating many challenges associated with measuring highly concentrated samples using traditional short path cuvettes. Economical and disposable, SpecVettes are path length matched and have 1% to 2% error across the entire UV-VIS spectrum for twenty five different cuvettes. A universal adapter allows SpecVettes to be used with any spectrometer with a z-height of 12 to 20 mm. Other features include UV transparency to 220 nm, and an 'easy to fill' pipette tip port. Optional flowcell connections or transparent interdigitated electrodes further expand its capabilities for specialty applications.
