Advanced SmartCheck has been released!

Advanced SmartCheck has been released!



S. M.A. R.T. attributes monitor for all network



(PRWEB) September 24, 2004



Advanced SmartCheck uses S. M.A. R.T. technology to monitor all networked PC's hard drives internal S. M.A. R.T. attributes, predict possible drive failure and prevent data loss. Using predictions settings, Advanced SmartCheck lets you know about a potential disk health problem before you lose valuable data.



With Advanced SmartCheck, the Network Administrator will have the most recent information about the health of all hard drives on all of the computers installed across the network. Prediction of the nearest T. E.C. of any hard drive can prevent valuable data loss by replacing dangerous drives and backing up all data.



For example, motor and/or bearing failure can be predicted by an increase in the drive spin-up time and the number of retries it takes to succeed in spinning up the drive. Or, if the drive notes that the error correction is being used excessively, it can attribute this to a broken drive head or contamination, and alert you before the problem gets worse. Armed with a failure prediction, the user or system manager can back up key data, replace a suspect device prior to data loss, or avoid undesired downtime.



S. M.A. R.T. monitors the disks performance, bad sectors, calibration, CRC errors, disk spin up time, distance between the head and the disk, temperature, features of medium, heads, motor or servo-mechanism. In all, over 35 attributes are covered by S. M.A. R.T. The errors that the system can detect can be predicted by a number of methods. Currently the SMART system can detect around 70% of all hard drive errors.

Freedom Childcare Helps Businesses Create Work Life Balance for Businesses in Hampshire

Freedom Childcare Helps Businesses Create Work Life Balance for Businesses in Hampshire



Freedom Childcare, now a well-established organisation, is seeking to expand its area of expertise into the corporate sector. Already well recognised for its impeccable standards of service in the family and holiday maker environment, Freedom are now looking to assist companies of all sizes to maintain a healthy workforce and help their employees to achieve a better work life balance.



(PRWEB) March 2, 2007



Childcare is a very complex issue, with many options and decisions faced by sometimes new and inexperienced parents. This can feel overwhelming and initially rather daunting, as choosing the best combinations is a very important decision and crucial to the smooth running of life in general. As families get larger, parents separate, work schedules become increasingly more complex, all this can add to the stress of being a parent in the 21st century!



Indirectly this also becomes the employer's problem: school closure days, school holidays, decreased flexibility, decreased training attendance, less availability for extra working hours and extra curricular meetings.



The range of services we have developed can help even with the most complex childcare requirements. Our flexi nanny service is proving to be very popular, providing ad hoc nanny care 24/7 thus acting as a childcare insurance policy for busy families. Our trained childcare advisors can also provide information on Tax Credits and Employer Provided Childcare schemes, signposting to other organisations where appropriate.



Statistics



In 56% of families with children under school age, both parents now work and an amazing 73% of parents with school aged children both work. This percentage has increased by 10% in 10 years. Translating more parents are working, subsequently pushing up the percentage of employees with children. Interestingly the number of working parents is higher in the south than other parts of the country.



(Office for National Statistics. Labour Market Trends 2005)



Statistics aside, providing staff with a childcare package is good for company image and staff morale, as well as for all the afore mentioned practical and tangible benefits.



"Our spectrum of services and our flexible approach enables us to help organisations of all sizes. By becoming a Corporate Member, employees will benefit from the following services: a free phone helpline, subsidised hourly rates, subsidised Sure Start registration, free Freedom registration, half price membership, childcare training, access to a parents forum, access to our children's download pages and be able to sell unwanted childcare items online. The costs are very reasonable and based on the number of employees. We have helped the NHS tackle their recruitment and retention issues and are now looking to roll out this model to other organisations."



"The south is also unique in that many parents, when they first relocate, are faced with no family or network of friends, I found myself in this very situation when I first relocated. Coming from a large extended family, where childcare was never an issue, I was suddenly faced with the fact that 'childcare' now started and ended with me! This is why I set up the company in the first instance and it is very gratifying helping families in similar situations."



Now families can benefit from being able to claim back the cost of childcare in their own home. This can be through salary sacrifice vouchers or Tax Credits. Home based childcare is now a viable option for families from all financial backgrounds.



If you are either an individual looking for childcare or a company looking for a Human Resources solution, we would very much like to hear from you. enquiries @ freedomchildcare. com www. freedomchildcare. com 01983 299222

AutoCAD 2005, most often used in mechanical and civil engineering, and architecture, includes 120 hours for $1,595. This program includes the most recent information and technology needed to advance in any drawing related field.



Both programs give prospective employees the skills necessary to seek jobs various expanding occupations.

For clear, incisive information on how HIPAA privacy and security compliance affects patient information management, utilize the expertise of developers and distributors of HIPAA training content, Paul Nash and Brian Driscoll.

HIPAA Experts Available to Review Privacy, Security, Training and Compliance



HCPro, Inc. Leads in HIPAA Compliance Content and Training



MARBLEHEAD, MA (PRWEB) May 1, 2003 – The deadline for healthcare entities to meet federal compliance for the privacy regulations issued under the Heath Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPPA) passed on April 14. While most organizations are in the process of complying, it is merely the beginning of compliance that will continue to change the way patient information is managed for the foreseeable future.



HCPro, Inc. (www. hcpro. com) has been dedicated to HIPAA compliance since its enactment in 1996. Today, more than one - million healthcare workers have been trained in HIPPA privacy compliance using HCPro multi-platform solutions. Paul Nash and Brian Driscoll of HCPro, Inc. are leaders in content expertise for HIPAA compliance. They are available to help editors understand HIPAAÂ’s impact on the healthcare industry. For example, the HIPAA privacy rule requires that new hires be trained on protecting patient privacy within a reasonable period of time. As policies and procedures are revised within an organization, re-training is also required. Protecting patient privacy reduces the risk of a privacy breach that could result in expensive fines.



The deadline for healthcare entities to comply with the HIPAA security rule is April 21, 2005. The security rule specifies how each facility must secure protected health information (PHI) on computer networks, the Internet, disks and magnetic tape, and over extranets. The final security rule also mandates that all staff, including management, receive security awareness training. Organizations must also implement audit controls that record and examine workers who have logged into information systems that contain PHI, and organizations must limit physical access to facilities that contain electronic PHI.



For clear, incisive information on how HIPAA privacy and security compliance affects patient information management, utilize the expertise of developers and distributors of HIPAA training content, Paul Nash and Brian Driscoll. They are available for interviews, expert Q&AÂ’s, or to author byline features.

New Organization Founded To Develop Global Women Leaders And Build Bridges Across The Pacific

New Organization Founded To Develop Global Women Leaders And Build Bridges Across The Pacific



A new organization will offer programs to train and provide networking opportunities for women in the US and Japan. Focused on buidling bridges across the Pacific, the organization founded is focused on creating opportunities for women worldwide.



LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) December 6, 2006



In collaboration with programs in Japan and the U. S., founder and executive director Hiroko Tatebe announced the establishment of the Global Organization for Leadership and Diversity (GOLD), an organization dedicated to developing global women leaders. GOLD will lead the way to develop global leaders and create business and civic communities that will explore and contribute to new cross-cultural economic opportunities by bringing together leaders from Japan and the United States.



Leading GOLD is a former Executive Vice President, Treasurer and Board of Director of Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank of California (DKBCAL), Hiroko Tatebe, who will serve as executive director. During her tenure at DKBCAL she was the first and only woman board of director. She was responsible for the complete financial, operations and administrative management and managed successfully professional teams with diverse technical and cultural backgrounds. Among her honors include: "Outstanding Business Woman of the Year" by the Los Angeles Chapter of Women in Business, and an "Affiliated Businesswomen Member of the Year" by the Los Angeles Chapter of National Association of Women Business Owners.



"The challenges of 21st century demand extraordinary leaders," said Hiroko Tatebe, founder of the new organization. "Despite gains in leadership diversity, women remain perhaps the world's most under-utilized resource. The time is right for new and innovative initiatives that foster professional development opportunities for women. A larger pool of well-trained and supported women leaders is essential to the global economy."



"In the United States," she continues, "even though 'diversity' and 'women's leadership' issues are not new subjects, the ratio of women to men in leadership positions remains imbalanced. In Japan the situation is significantly worse."



A 2005 World Economic Forum Global Gender Gap Report measured the extent to which women have achieved equality with men in 58 countries in five critical areas: economic participation, economic opportunity, political empowerment, educational attainment, and health and well-being. The U. S. ranked 17th and Japan ranked 38th in overall score. In the primary area that GOLD is addressing -- economic opportunity -- the U. S. ranked 46 and Japan 52.



"The implications of these rankings are evident," explains Tatebe. "Both the U. S. and Japan, the world's two largest economies, need to support initiatives to advance opportunities for women leadership development. Such initiatives are the key to maintaining economic prosperity."



GOLD will develop programs to establish new and innovative models to advance global perspectives about women's leadership including: training and advancement; workforce diversity; and intercultural understanding. GOLD's inaugural event in March 2007 will be a Symposium held in Los Angeles. Specifically, GOLD's goals include:



 Demonstrating the economic necessities and benefits of advancing global workforce diversity  Developing women's leadership training programs that advance opportunities for women in both countries and gradually extending the model for application in more of Asia  Bringing together leaders from Japan and the U. S. to collaborate and open new doors of opportunity.



Backing GOLD's initiatives and formation is an impressive advisory board and community partners that includes leaders and organizations from both Japan and the United States.



Initially, GOLD will focus on developing relationships with Japan and the U. S. eventually expanding throughout all of Asia.



About GOLD



The Global Organization for Leadership and Diversity (GOLD) focuses on developing global women leaders. GOLD will foster professional and leadership growth of current and future business and professional women by providing educational, inspirational and motivational activities and events that build "leadership bridges across the Pacific."



GOLD is currently under the fiscal sponsorship of Community Partners' Nonprofit Incubator Project. Community Partners is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which helps social entrepreneurs and visionary leaders initiate important and timely projects that provide innovative strategies and solutions for addressing some of the most pressing problems of our time.

Philip Stein Teslar Diamond Watch is Now Available at MilredBarrett. com With Other Exquisite Gifts, Jewelry, Handbags and Timepieces for Your Elite Taste

Philip Stein Teslar Diamond Watch is Now Available at MilredBarrett. com With Other Exquisite Gifts, Jewelry, Handbags and Timepieces for Your Elite Taste



MildredBarrett. com boasts a client list of some of the most notable athletes and celebrities in America. To celebrate a successful Spring 2005 www. MildredBarrett. com is offering Philip SteinÂ’s Teslar 1.16 Karat Genuine Full Cut Diamond watch as a perfect reward for yourself or gift for that special someone in your life. The Teslar chip emits a defensive signal shielding your body from harmful electromagnetic pollution generated by invisible radio waves to reduce stress and improve your sense of wellness.



(PRWEB) April 15, 2005



Spring is blooming and MotherÂ’s Day is right around the corner. ItÂ’s now time to think about shaping up for summer, upgrading your fashion ensemble and choosing that ideal gift to celebrate the season.



Now you can make a strong fashion statement while focusing on good health and fitness with an exquisite timepiece available from www. MildredBarrett. com. The Teslar watch, by jeweler Philip Stein, has achieved rave reviews for protecting the body from electromagnetic pollution generated by invisible radio waves from wireless computers, cell phones, transmitters and high tension wires.



Philip SteinÂ’s Teslar chips are a health and wellness achievement worthy of Nobel Prize acclaim. The Teslar chip, named for famed inventor Nikola Tesla, who worked with Thomas Edison, emits a defensive signal shielding your body from harmful electronic pollution reducing stress, hyper-activity, headaches, depression and anxiety. Not only does the watch look terrific it improves your sense of wellness.



Electronic pollution has significantly increased with our emphasis on technology; television, radio, mobile phones and other electronic gadgets have been linked with serious health hazards. Philip Stein Teslar watches include a copper chip inside each watch that assist the wearer's body in neutralizing electronic pollution from devices like PDAs and cell phones.



Clients have reported they feel calmer, sleep more soundly, and have recognized improved concentration and increased energy levels. Philip Stein says their Teslar watch helps the body strengthen its energy field, lessening the negative effects of exposure to electronic pollution.



Oprah Winfrey was so impressed with the Philip Stein Teslar watch that Madonna gave her in December 2003 that she later featured the watch on her program "Oprah's Favorite Things," where she gave a stainless steel Philip Stein Teslar watch to every studio audience member.



Dr Valerie Hunt, Professor Emeritus at UCLA, was quoted, saying the watch “magnifies the strength of the biofield, thus protecting the body from destructive electromagnetism.” One reported study of an American football team wearing the watches found that 97 per cent noticed a reduction in the intensity of aches and pains.



The stylish timepiece has scored with celebrities including: Lennox Lewis, Barbara Walters, Model Jodie Kidd, P Diddy, Jack Nicholson, and Madonna is said to have bought two for her children.



The inventors, renowned scientists Ilonka Harezi and Dr. Courtland Reeves, have for twenty years been studying the effects of low frequency electromagnetic fields and their impact on the human body. Harezi and Reeves believe that extremely low frequencies or “Elf” generated by modern electronics negatively influence the central nervous system which can cause headaches, tiredness, fatigue and other unhealthy symptoms. In combating this problem the chip they developed introduces (non-Hertzian) waves which are reportedly capable of protecting a person from pathogenic influences of Elf.



Press coverage of the Philip Stein Teslar watches has included over fifty publications including: People Magazine, U. S. Weekly, Hollywood Life Fashion and Vogue. The Philip Stein Teslar can be found at such fine retailers as Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdale's and now www. MildredBarrett. com.

Yappies Create Buzz

Yappies Create Buzz



50plus Online Magazine (www.50plusMag. com) reports an unprecedented reaction to its recent editorial “Yesterday’s Boomers are Today’s YAPS”



(PRWEB) February 4, 2005



“It was like it suddenly dawned on everyone that we are right,” says Gary Geyer, editor of 50plus Online Magazine (www.50plusMag. com).”You hear a lot of talk these days about baby boomers, but honestly, I don’t know of any so-called “baby boomer” that has actually referred to him or herself as a baby boomer. It’s a term we don’t identify with.”



Actually, the term “baby boom” was first coined in 1980, 34 years after the post-war baby boom began. Landon Jones, a writer and editor at Time Inc., described in his book, Great Expectations: America and the Baby Boom Generation, ” the monumental effect that boomers had on virtually every American institution throughout their lives such as media, education, politics and consumerism.”



Baby Boomers were a force to be reckoned with.



What about now? Are baby boomers still a force to be reckoned with?



“Emphatically, yes,” says Geyer. “But the tag “baby boomer” is meaningless to us and really, everyone else. Today the term seems archaic. It described who we were then, not who we are now.”



“Incidentally, a term we dislike even more than ‘boomer’ is ‘aging boomer',” adds Geyer.



“Our ages today are about 50—65, give or take a few years on both ends. Not yet seniors, we’ll admit to being “pre-seniors”.



So, hereÂ’s what we at 50plus Online Magazine (www.50plusMag. com) are proposing: From now on, stop calling us boomers and start calling us by a term we can identify with.



Are you ready? We are YAPS. Y-A-P-S. Youthful, Active, Pre-Seniors. (You can call us “Yappies”, if you like.)”.



Here's what YAPS are like:



“YAPS are not like our parents (who actually are seniors). YAPS are youthful in appearance and attitude. We try to stay active. We exercise, watch our diet and eat healthier than those Gen X-ers half our age. As the NY Times has pointed out, the average age of the 5 directors nominated for Academy Awards this year is 60.



YAPS still like rock ‘n roll (classic rock, not rap or hip-hop), are fashion conscious, get nipped and tucked when need be and have romantic inclinations.



YAPS lead active sex lives and are ViagraÂ’s prime market. We are prominent in the work force, are politically motivated, surf and shop the internet, read, listen to CDs, play video games (no kidding), take vacations, frequent restaurants, travel, buy luxury items (more than any other demographic) such as plasma TVs, new cars, boats and houses. We help provide for our children, spoil our grandchildren, and today more than ever, take care of our aging parents.



And in case you havenÂ’t realized it, YAPS are a demographic.



The YAPS demographic is growing faster than you can shake a stick.



When you consider that every 7 seconds someone turns 50, that means the “YAPPIE” population increases every 7 seconds. The mind boggles at our numbers and the power we can (still) yield.



Sadly, we are a virtually untapped market. So marketers, wake up and start tapping. We are tired of being ignored. YAPS will spend upward of three trillion dollars in 2005 on anything and everything that prolongs our (forgive me) yappiness.



We do NOT roll over and play dead once we turn 50. We are still that “narcissistic, self indulgent group” we were when we were baby boomers, and we still believe the world owes us a living. We are alive and kicking, so you better not ignore us.



We are now demanding pop-culture status



We believe the time is right for we “former boomers” to be recognized, appreciated and have our very own pop designation.



There were hippies, yippies, and yuppies. Now, make way for us. 2005 is definitely the year of the YAPS!



Long live the ‘Yappies!’



About 50plus Online Magazine (www.50plusMag. com).



50plus Online Magazine is an online magazine directed to a “Yappie” audience. The focus is on contemporary issues approached from a 50+ perspective. ”We’re quite different than most other sites or publications geared to the mature market. Although we have many senior readers, a good many of our articles are written with the youthful, active, pre-senior audience in mind.”



Articles featured this month (besides the YAPS editorial) include:



Rod Stewart: Some Guys have All the Luck Double-Edged Grief: When Grandparents Experience the Death of a Grandchild. A (Not so) Crazy Alternative to Assisted Living: A Long Cruise.



Gary Geyer is founder, editor and publisher of 50plus Online Magazine as well as President and Creative Director of Alive & Kicking Advertising—a marketing company that specializes in the 50+ market.

American Clay Earth Plaster Users Claim Energy Savings, Company Announces Launch of Experiment Testing Claims at Greenbuild

American Clay Earth Plaster Users Claim Energy Savings, Company Announces Launch of Experiment Testing Claims at Greenbuild



American Clay Enterprises returns to the Greenbuild International Expo to showcase its all-natural, eco-friendly earth plasters with a larger hands-on demo area. They will also discuss the start of a long-term experiment inspired by feedback from users of the products who claim that the clay provides them energy savings, in addition to the other acknowledged benefits - inhibiting mold, moderating temperature, repelling dirt, controlling humidity, sound attenuating, flexible, repairable and containing no VOCs. For the November 19-21, 2008, event, American Clay will exhibit in booth #1422 at the Boston (MA) Convention and Exhibition Center. They will host ongoing demonstrations, in which anyone can participate, and have both their original - primarily residential - earth plasters, plus their recently launched ENJARRE, a single-coat plaster directed at the commercial and multi-unit residential markets.



Albuquerque, NM (PRWEB) November 11, 2008



Award-winning American Clay Enterprises returns to the Greenbuild International Expo to showcase its all-natural, eco-friendly earth plasters with a larger hands-on demo area. They will also discuss the start of a long-term experiment inspired by feedback from users of the products who claim that the clay provides them energy savings, in addition to the other acknowledged benefits - inhibiting mold, moderating temperature, repelling dirt, controlling humidity, sound attenuating, flexible, repairable and containing no VOCs. For the November 19-21, 2008, event, American Clay will exhibit in booth #1422 at the Boston (MA) Convention and Exhibition Center. They will host ongoing demonstrations, in which anyone can participate, and have both their original - primarily residential - earth plasters, plus their recently launched ENJARRE, a single-coat plaster directed at the commercial and multi-unit residential markets.



The experiment, called "Dynamic Solar", is being conducted at the American Clay facility in Albuquerque, NM, starting this month. It is expected to run for at least a year. They have built five identical test structures, 7'h x 8'w x5'd, of frame construction with R13 fiber-glass bat insulation, and one door each. They break down in this way:

 One has cement stucco exterior with interior paint.  One has vinyl siding exterior and interior paint.  One has cement stucco exterior with American Clay interior plaster.  One has vinyl siding exterior with American Clay interior plaster.  One has American Clay's soon-to-launch lime stucco on exterior with American Clay interior plaster.



All the units have on the inside an identical data logger, called Spectrum 2000, with an additional one on the outside monitoring exterior atmosphere conditions around the units. The Spectrum 2000 measures the relative humidity and temperature in a space. By comparing these, one can determine how much energy will be needed to keep a building comfortable. Once they get a baseline data for each unit, they can then start shifting conditions to determine how to maximize energy savings.



"Over time we have received information about energy savings from customers," says Croft Elsaesser, American Clay co-Founder and CEO. "At first we discounted their claims. But as more information came in, we began to look at whether there was validity to what they were saying, including one Pennsylvania graduate student who called us about energy variations in a house he was monitoring with half clay, half paint. This experiment is a real world approach to get a direct correlation to the different materials, and their impact on our energy usage. I think when the results come in, we will have the data to quantify what the energy savings could be if our plaster is used on a project. It will change the way people think about the interior materials that they use, and the value of clay for the interior walls."



The internationally-recognized Greenbuild Expo presents the perfect opportunity to announce how a company already recognized for its thoroughly sustainable product contribution to building and design is constantly checking itself to innovate behind the scenes.



One client who claims energy savings and inspired the experiment is an architecture firm that remodeled a 1950s building. The exterior walls, roofing, insulation and substrate materials are the same throughout, but a closed-off hallway separates two sides of the building - one side is covered inside with high-quality zero-VOC paint, and the other side with American Clay plaster. They have shown a great difference in energy use between the two separately-metered areas, with significant savings on the American Clay side.



American Clay will also be continuously demonstrating their products, from their three original formulations to the new commercially-directed ENJARRE, which comes pre-tinted in eight colors (some custom available). The plaster can be applied to multiple substrates, cover CMU blocks in one pass, and typically lasts for the life of the walls. And at less than $.30 per square foot to contractors, with color and binder inclusive, ENJARRE gives builders a product that helps provide top indoor air quality and beauty--and can contribute toward up to seven LEED points (five in most areas)--at a very competitive price.



They will also be showing at Greenbuild an exciting new technique they've discovered that uses burlap to help manage issues with plastering corners.



American Clay's mission is to better the planet, through their commitment to healthy solutions for beautiful, calm, and healthy environments. To that end, some energy saving company methods include:

Their manufacturing uses low inherent energy to produce our products. i. e. 250 tons of material costs $45 in electricity. They use no water in manufacturing. Plaster is shipped dry to save shipping energy and cost. (Additional 20 pounds of water if sent premixed.)



Additional American Clay news:

American Clay is plastered all over actor Adrian Grenier's house in Planet Green's "Alter Eco" show American Clay was featured with a moisture control experiment on DIY Channel's "Deconstruction". New Sales Team Manager Peggy Cunningham was appointed in August. American Clay was featured in "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" on ABC-TV in May. ABOUT AMERICAN CLAY ENTERPRISES, LLC:

American Clay produces award-winning, all-natural interior wall finishing products. Their Earth Plasters and the commercial ENJARRE single coat plaster are a unique combination of clays, aggregates and natural pigments that offer builders and consumers a natural and elegant option.

NewYork-Presbyterian Ranks Among Top 10 in the Nation According to U. S. News Media Group’s 2010-11 Best Hospitals

NewYork-Presbyterian Ranks Among Top 10 in the Nation According to U. S. News Media Group’s 2010-11 Best Hospitals



NewYork-Presbyterian #6 in the Nation, #1 Among Ranked Hospitals in New York Area



New York, NY (PRWEB) July 15, 2010



NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (http://nyp. org/), one of the country’s largest and most comprehensive academic medical centers, is ranked #6 in the nation and #1 among ranked hospitals in the New York area, according to U. S. News Media Group’s 2010-11 Best Hospitals (http://health. usnews. com/best-hospitals). This marks the 10th consecutive year that NewYork-Presbyterian has been listed on U. S. News’ prestigious “Honor Roll.”



Best Hospitals 2010-11 ranks 152 medical centers nationwide in 16 specialties. The Honor Roll highlights 14 of these medical centers that are ranked at or near the top in at least six specialties based on reputation, death rates, procedure volume and the balance of nurses and patients.



NewYork-Presbyterian ranked in the following specialties: Cancer; Diabetes & Endocrinology; Ear, Nose & Throat; Gastroenterology; Geriatrics; Gynecology; Heart & Heart Surgery; Kidney Disorders; Neurology & Neurosurgery; Ophthalmology; Orthopedics; Pulmonology; Psychiatry; Rheumatology; and Urology.



Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, lists the top six reasons he believes that NewYork-Presbyterian is one of the nation’s top six hospitals:

Top Six Reasons We’re in the Top Six



1. We put patients first. From our world-class clinicians and cutting-edge treatment options to our culture of empathy and emphasis on quality and safety, NewYork-Presbyterian is committed to putting patients and their families first.



2. Our physicians are re-inventing medical practice. As the nation’s only hospital affiliated with two leading Ivy League medical schools, NewYork-Presbyterian performed the world’s first pediatric multivisceral surgery involving the removal and partial reimplantation of six abdominal organs. We also developed a breakthrough treatment that delivers chemotherapy directly into a malignant brain tumor.



3. We have some of the world’s most advanced facilities and technologies. In 2010, NewYork-Presbyterian opened the Ronald O. Perelman Heart Institute and the Vivian and Seymour Milstein Family Heart Center, with advanced operating rooms that allow clinicians to perform “hybrid” heart procedures combining surgery and interventional cardiology. We are the nation’s first hospital to use the state-of-the-art Artis Zeego imaging system for advancing treatments for cardiovascular, neurologic and gastrointestinal conditions.



4. Our diverse team of specialists work together to provide world-class care. From clinicians, including nurse-Ph. D.s, Pharm. D.s and social workers, to translation and patient services professionals, NewYork-Presbyterian’s unique team is committed to our patients and their families.



5. Patient safety and quality of care are foremost in our minds. The Hospital is recognized for its pioneering initiatives, including its award-winning Patient Safety Fridays program to ensure the highest quality and safety for the patient.



6. Financial stability provides a vision for the future. In the challenging and changing world of health care, NewYork-Presbyterian has a strong financial foundation that allows us to invest in new ways to serve patients and families.



“We are very pleased to again be counted among the outstanding institutions on the U. S. News Media Group’s 2010-11 Best Hospitals ‘Honor Roll.’ With expertise across the full spectrum of medical specialties, our health care professionals are dedicated to providing high-quality, effective and empathetic care to patients and their families,” says Dr. Herbert Pardes, president and CEO of NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. “Through our affiliation with two of the nation’s leading Ivy League medical schools — Weill Cornell Medical College and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons — we are continually developing cutting-edge medical technologies and potentially life-saving therapies.”



Dr. Steven J. Corwin, executive vice president and COO, adds, “This distinction is a tribute to the continued excellence in the care and service we deliver to our patients every single day. We applaud and thank our amazing staff for their commitment to teamwork, and to putting patients and families first.”



U. S. News Media Group’s 2010-11 Best Hospitals is available online at http://www. usnews. com/besthospitals (http://www. usnews. com/besthospitals) and featured in the August print issue of U. S.News & World Report, available on newsstands July 27.



About NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital (http://nyp. org/):

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, based in New York City, is the nation’s largest not-for-profit, non-sectarian hospital, with 2,353 beds. The Hospital has nearly 2 million inpatient and outpatient visits in a year, including more than 220,000 visits to its emergency departments — more than any other area hospital.

Best-Selling Book, The Thyroid Diet, Explains Why Oprah Winfrey Doesn't Need to Weight 200 Pounds

Best-Selling Book, The Thyroid Diet, Explains Why Oprah Winfrey Doesn't Need to Weight 200 Pounds



Oprah Winfrey has announced that she has gained 40 pounds since her 1997 diagnosis of thyroid disease, and now weighs 200 pounds. Mary Shomon, nationally known thyroid patient advocate says that Oprah -- like millions of other American women struggling with thyroid and weight problems - doesn't need to face such an uphill battle. Shomon's New York Times best-selling book "The Thyroid Diet," explains how to get thyroid problems like Oprah's diagnosed and properly treated, and the unique approaches thyroid sufferers - including Oprah - can follow in order to successfully lose weight.



Kensington, MD (PRWEB) January 5, 2009



Attention is again focused on the connection between thyroid disease and weight problems, after talk show host Oprah Winfrey announced that she gained 40 pounds since her own 1997 diagnosis of thyroid disease, and now weighs 200 pounds.



As many as 50 million Americans have thyroid conditions - and more than half of them are undiagnosed. Many thyroid sufferers experience metabolism that is slowed to levels that make dieting and weight loss seemingly impossible.



Mary Shomon, nationally known thyroid patient advocate, says that Oprah Winfrey, like millions of other American women struggling with thyroid and weight problems, does not need to face such an uphill battle. Shomon's New York Times best-selling book "The Thyroid Diet: Manage Your Metabolism for Lasting Weight Loss," is the only book to help many previously unsuccessful dieters finally overcome this major - but often overlooked -- impediment to weight loss. Detailed information on "The Thyroid Diet," available at the book's website, http://www. thyroid-info. com (http://www. thyroid-info. com) --- which also features a free downloadable Ebook from Shomon, titled "Is Your Thyroid Making You Fat?"



In "The Thyroid Diet," millions of frustrated dieters will discover that diagnosis and proper thyroid treatment may be all that's needed to successfully restore the metabolism to normal and begin to lose weight. "The Thyroid Diet" features a "Symptoms Checklist," along with detailed guidelines on how to get diagnosed and properly treated.



Proper treatment can be far more complicated than patients are led to believe. Oprah Winfrey has, in fact, revealed that she has stopped taking thyroid medication because she didn't feel better.



Says Shomon: "Oprah's situation points out how tricky it can be to find the right medication, at the right dose, for the right amount of time, or order to start feeling the benefits. Many women are prescribed the popular thyroid drug, Synthroid, and if they don't feel well a few weeks later, they think it's not working, and give up. Instead of abandoning thyroid treatment, thyroid patients need to know their options, and how to navigate through the many treatment approaches to find what will work for them."



Shomon has summarized some important points about Oprah's thyroid and weight loss situation in an article "The Six Reasons Why Oprah Winfrey Doesn't Have to Weigh 200 Pounds" (http://thyroid. about. com/b/a/257719.htm) -- located at http://thyroid. about. com/b/a/257719.htm (http://thyroid. about. com/b/a/257719.htm) at the popular About. com thyroid site where she has been Guide since 1997.



Even with the best possible diagnosis and treatment, weight loss can still be more difficult for thyroid patients. Says Shomon: "In The Thyroid Diet, I've put together the best advice from practitioners around the country - and the patients who have successfully lost weight - on the thyroid treatments, foods, approaches, supplements, herbs, nutrients and exercise that can help even the playing field for thyroid patients trying to lose weight."



"The Thyroid Diet" was published to acclaim, reaching the New York Times Best Seller List, the Amazon. com "Diet and Weight Loss" Bestsellers List, and was a Quills award semi-finalist. "The Thyroid Diet" also spent more than a month in the Amazon's Top 100 Bestsellers list.



In "The Thyroid Diet" readers will learn...

Why more than half of the almost 30 million Americans with thyroid problems haven't been diagnosed The three physical signs that almost guarantee you have an undiagnosed thyroid problem Why your doctor isn't likely to test you for this common diet saboteur, and what you can do Why frequent "mini-meals" may be the worst thing for your weight loss effort Herbal remedy from Africa that can dramatically cut appetite, without dangerous side effects The so-called "health food" that Oprah - and millions of women - eats that may be sabotaging her diet



"The Thyroid Diet" discusses optimal dietary changes, focusing on the "low-glycemic" diet -- the healthier evolution of the low-carb craze. Readers also learn about optimal timing of meals for maximum hormonal impact, thyroid-damaging foods to avoid, helpful herbs and supplements, and more. The advice of numerous nationally-known doctors and practitioners is featured in the book.



The book contains several different eating plans, food lists, and a set of delicious and healthy recipes. Handy worksheets aid in weight loss tracking, and a special resource section features websites, books, and support groups.

ValiMed™ Medication Validation System And Related Information From Baxa Corporation Are Now Available At PublicRelationsNewsroom. com

ValiMed™ Medication Validation System And Related Information From Baxa Corporation Are Now Available At PublicRelationsNewsroom. com



The ValiMed Medication Validation System and related information are now available at PublicRelationsNewsroom. com. The ValiMed System, distributed by Baxa Corporation, offers clinicians a simple and cost-effective tool to ensure medication safety by verifying that medications are correctly compounded. Its patented technology validates compounded doses of high risk medications prior to dispensing.



Englewood, CO (PRWEB) June 15, 2007



The ValiMed Medication Validation System and related information are now available at http://publicrelationsnewsroom. com/_wsn/page19.html (http://publicrelationsnewsroom. com/_wsn/page19.html) for media and professional access. ValiMed, distributed by Baxa Corporation, uses enhanced photoemission spectroscopy to quickly validate high-risk medication admixtures, as well as returned narcotics to provide an increased level of patient safety. ValiMed compares a medication's spectroscopic signature to the Medication Signature Library and returns an easy-to-understand "validated" or "not validated" result, requiring no user interpretation.



The expanded ValiMed System features patented technology that validates in seconds compounded doses of high-risk medications prior to dispensing. Verification of compounding accuracy is a requirement under USP 27-NF 22 Chapter 797, which regulates the compounding of sterile products. The ValiMed System can play a key role in demonstrating the safety of compounded sterile products (CSPs) under these requirements.



This expanded ValiMed System incorporates reports supporting compliance with USP 797 requirements. It also features a modified disposable, requiring a reduced (0.25 mL) sample volume for testing. "This next-generation ValiMed System addresses customer requests," notes Baxa Corporation Product Manager Mark Thrasher. "The addition of a quality assurance feature meets the regulatory requirements, while the smaller sample requirement more easily accommodates current pharmacy work flows."



Baxa, a long-time proponent of hospital pharmacy safety initiatives, recently launched its state-of-the-art STAR (Skills Training, Academics and Resources) Center for pharmacy and cleanroom skills training. Products such as the ValiMed Medication Validation System can be demonstrated and evaluated there, as part of a technology overview for best practices. Baxa designed and built the STAR Center as a fully USP 797-compliant pharmacy cleanroom to provide professional education on pharmacy practice, cleanroom principles and compliance to regulatory requirements. The STAR Center, the only dedicated facility of its kind in the world for hands-on cleanroom experience and training in environmental monitoring and aseptic technique, provides a unique opportunity for industry professionals to learn best practice from subject-matter expert trainers.

Herodogs R Us Contest

Herodogs R Us Contest



Donna M. Jackson recently published the children's book, Hero Dogs: Courageous Canines in Action, which honors those special Canines With A Cause. In the book Donna details stories from the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, along with tales of everyday hero dogs. Our Hero Goldens R Us Contest, for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 aged youngsters, will be honoring all those heroes of the Golden persuasion. Believe it or not, it costs nothing to enter but your time. With an incredible $800 prize package and every published entrant receiving a laminated Land of PureGold bookmark and personalized certificate of participation, what have you got to lose.



(PRWEB) December 4, 2003



At the Land of PureGold (http://landofpuregold. com/ (http://landofpuregold. com/)), the goal is to joyfully inform and provide assistance. This site was created by School Psychologist, Rochelle Lesser, to recognize and celebrate the wonders of the Human-'Golden' Bond. All aspects of Golden Retriever living are explored and every service field and humanitarian effort that our Golden gems are responsible for, with respect to enhancing persons' lives, is highlighted. Hoping to entice active involvement at the site from both kids and adults, contests are created to celebrate new, notable literary canine-oriented works.



The HERO GOLDENS R US Contest (located at http://landofpuregold. com/herodogs. htm (http://landofpuregold. com/herodogs. htm)) for Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12 aged youngsters, will be honoring all those heroes of the Golden persuasion. It celebrates Donna M. Jackson's recently published children's book, "Hero Dogs: Courageous Canines in Action." In this book, which honors those special 'Canines With A Cause,' the author details stories from the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon, along with tales of everyday hero dogs.



These heroes or 'Goldens With A Cause,' who are defined as those providing assistance, protection, comfort, rescue or entertainment, may include any one of the following. . . .



 



-- Assistance Dogs who see for the blind (Guide Dogs), hear for the deaf (Hearing Dogs), or reach out for the disabled (Mobility/Service Dogs)



-- Assistance Dogs who alert to distress, such as seizures, heart problems, or panic attacks



-- Facility Dogs who work with professionals in group settings to help with those with intellectual, physical or emotional problems



-- Therapy Dogs who comfort the sick, troubled or lonely through visitations



-- Therapy Dogs who work with professionals to help motivate the disabled to resist their physical, intellectual or emotional problems



-- Therapy Dogs who help those dealing with disasters  



-- Search & Rescue Dogs



-- Disaster Search & Rescue Dogs



-- Detection Dogs who sniff out drugs, bombs or crime-scene evidence



-- Family Dogs who rise to the occasion in an emergency



-- Entertainers (like Air BudÂ’s Buddy, Sue Thomas, F. B. EyeÂ’s Levi)



There is no entry fee for this contest. And, with an incredible $800 prize package and every published entrant receiving a laminated Land of PureGold bookmark and personalized certificate of participation, there is certainly much reason to enter.



Youngsters from Kindergarten thru Grade 12 are invited to enter, via three separate categories of competition: Pre-Kindergarten thru Grade 3 (Primary); Grades 4 thru 5 (Intermediate); and Grades 6 thru 12 (Middle/Senior). Entries may be made by individual or groups of children (for example, 4H groups, classrooms, etc.). This entry must be submitted by a parent, teacher, therapist, or health professional, certifying that it has been created independently by the named youngster or group, and that there is adult approval for their involvement in the activity. If the entry comes from a group of youngsters, whose ages vary across more than one grade category, this adult should indicate the category to be most representative. Entries can be submitted in either a written or digital video format. Depending on the grade category, written entries could range from one paragraph to an entire essay. Digital video entries should not extend beyond fifteen minutes.



The adult submitting this entry needs to be sure to provide the following identifying information: the grade category (Primary, Intermediate or Middle/Senior) for the entry; the name(s) & age(s) of all the youngsters who contributed to the creation of the piece; the city and state in which each youngster resides; the relationship that he/she has with these youngsters (that is, parent, teacher, etc.); and, his/her own contact name, home address, phone number, and email address.



The basic message to the entry needs to address why a particular Golden Retriever is a Hero Dog or Canine With A Cause. That is, just what sets him or her apart with respect to "unique skills, special talents, and superior work ethic." The Golden Retriever must be one that is personally known. For example, it could be a family member, a Golden that belongs to close friends or someone known to the family, a Golden that the youngster personally works with in a facility, etc.



If the entry is being submitted in written form, it should have a title and be written in clear sentences that displays good grammar and correct capitalization and punctuation. It can be sent with or without photographs, but photos will certainly provide 'extra credit' and give the entry an edge over photo-less entries. The name of the photographer, responsible for taking each photo, will need to be provided, so that he/she can be given credit for their contribution. And, a brief description of the pictured Golden in each photo should be noted (such as formal and/or call name, sex, age in photo). Also, if any persons appear in these photos, a statement must be enclosed verifying that they are 'okay' with their images appearing here at the site.

Her website, LIVE, LOVE & LAUGH with Golden Retrievers (at the Land of PureGold), has grown to be the most recognized site on the breed, with 125,000+ page views monthly.

RFID Times: Radio Frequency ID Blog Launches

RFID Times: Radio Frequency ID Blog Launches



Daily news weblog by Clay McCarter to publish radio frequency identification (RFID) stories daily.



(PRWEB) March 23, 2005



Radio Frequency IDentification (RFID) technology is quickly becoming an important B2B technology in aiding companies with asset tracking, real-time supply chain location management, and warehouse management systems. In response to this, Clay McCarter has launched a new RFID website, the RFID Times (http://rfidtimes. blogspot. com/ (http://rfidtimes. blogspot. com/)) to cover this emerging technology and subtopics including RFID tags, readers, chips, integration, privacy, security, inventory control, and EPC Gen 2 standardization.



While RFID is a big buzzword around many companies, especially retailers (such as Wal-Mart, Target, Tesco, and Marks & Spencer) and their suppliers, many consumers fear that it may some day threaten their privacy. What happens if some day, RFID is used by retailers, or even the government, to track your every move? RFID chips and readers would make this possible, although the possibility of such a thing occurring seem distant. But already, the European Union and the United States have announced to begin issuing passports containing micro-RFID chips that will contain personal information.



Despite the controversy, McCarter has a positive outlook on RFID that is reflected in his website. "The privacy stuff is scary but RFID is definitely going to revolutionize the way information is exchanged in the world," McCarter says. "It's going to revolutionize the movement of goods [and] it's going to speed up the way in which information is transferred."



McCarter also believes that RFID will be more of a help than a threat to consumers, especially where healthcare is concerned. RFID tags are likely to make hospitals more efficient and cost-effective as well as reduce pharmaceutical counterfeiting.



The RFID Times is owned and operated by Clay McCarter, chief editor and writer of the blog. To learn more about radio frequency ID or to inquire about becoming a writer at the RFID Times, visit our website at http://rfidtimes. blogspot. com/ (http://rfidtimes. blogspot. com/).

New Natural Eye Care Book! Healing Your Eyes with Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture, Acupressure, & Chinese Herbs by Andy Rosenfarb, L. Ac

New Natural Eye Care Book! Healing Your Eyes with Chinese Medicine: Acupuncture, Acupressure, & Chinese Herbs by Andy Rosenfarb, L. Ac.



Andy Rosenfarb, MTOM, L. Ac., has written a new book entitled Healing Your Eyes with Chinese Medicine. This is a landmark publication in the field of alternative medicine for the eyes and holistic ophthalmology. The book describes how acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can help to heal the eyes from various disease patterns. The information presented is based on years of clinically proven research and overwhelming success rate.



Westfield, NJ (PRWEB) July 23, 2007



With over 13 million Americans suffering from macular degeneration, and more and 1 million Americans blind from eye disease, it's all too clear that prescribed treatments for are not effective. For the past ten years, Andy Rosenfarb has successfully used acupuncture and Chinese medicine to treat a wide range of eye conditions. Healing Your Eyes with Chinese Medicine is the culmination of his work -- a handbook for healing the kinds of conditions too often considered almost impossibly challenging or irreversible. His treatments include moxibustion techniques, tuina (massage), micro-current stimulation, Chinese herbs, and qigong exercises, along with "essential acupuncture" where essential oils are placed on acupuncture points.



Healing Your Eyes with Chinese Medicine is intended as a practical manual to help readers understand their eyes and vision more comprehensively, and to learn new, affordable ways for retaining the precious gift of sight.



Additionally, Andy Rosenfarb, recently announced that he will be conducting research in conjunction with Dr. Robert Ritch MD professor and chief of glaucoma services at the New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. This study is being put together in order to research the effects of acupuncture's effect on lowering eye pressure in patients in the early stages of glaucoma and ocular hypertension. Once the study is complete, the research will be presented at the World Congress for Eye Research in Beijing, China following the 2008 Olympics.



Praise for this title:

"As an optometrist for more than twenty-five years, I see Andy Rosenfarb as one of the emerging leaders in complementary and innovative approaches to vision care. His zest for integrating the ancient traditions of eye care with modern scientific knowledge of the body is a great contribution to the paradigm of twenty-first-century vision care."

--Marc Grossman, OD, LAc, from the foreword



"Andy Rosenfarb's inquiring mind and tenacity in refining his techniques come together in this incredible book to provide a service both to patients and the medial profession. A summary of current research and new clinical techniques, Healing Your Eyes with Chinese Medicine emphasizes the practical and the useful---what helps people of all ages see better. This is an important book."

--Greg Bantick, Senior lecturer, Australian College of Natural Medicine, Brisbane, Australia



About the Author:

Andy Rosenfarb is the clinical director of Acupuncture Health Associates located in Watchung and Westfield, New Jersey. Andy lives in Warren, New Jersey. A Master of Traditional Oriental Medicine, he has over 13 years of experience as an acupuncturist and practitioner of Chinese Medicine, having successfully treated thousands of patients from around the world.
