MaryDesigns®, LLC Launches CENTA Website

MaryDesigns®, LLC Launches CENTA Website

MaryDesigns®, LLC, an Indianapolis website development company, launched a completely redesigned website for the Center for Ear Nose Throat & Allergy (CENTA). CENTA is one of the Midwest's premier providers of head and neck surgery and allergy services, with offices in Carmel and Indianapolis.

Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) November 3, 2010

MaryDesigns®, LLC, an Indianapolis web design / development company, launched a completely redesigned website for the Center for Ear Nose Throat & Allergy (CENTA). CENTA is one of the Midwest’s premier providers of head and neck surgery and allergy services, with offices in Carmel and Indianapolis. The site—centadocs. com—is a fairly large and informative site, offering not only office locations and practice information, but substantive information on new ENT developments, techniques and treatment options.

“CENTA’s doctors are some of the most prominent in their field nationwide,” comments Lewis, “but their previous website had become inadequate and out of date. The new design offers not only a fresh, new appearance and added functionality, it also contains a vast amount of information for both patients and referring physicians. At the same time, the new design is extremely user friendly and intuitive to navigate.” MaryDesigns provided the design, development, copy editing and some photography for the new site.

In addition to this new centadocs. com site, MaryDesigns previously created a website for the allergy division of CENTA, ihateallergyshots. com. “We could not be more pleased with the results of both sites,” stated CENTA’s Tod Huntley, MD. “Mary Lewis and her team surpassed our expectations. They met with us in person to get to know us. It was obvious that they wanted to do more than create just another business website. They realized—and perhaps more importantly, helped US realize—that a business’ website is part of that company’s identity, reflects its personality, and helps define to others its core values and strengths. We are happy that the new centadocs. com and the ihateallergyshots. com websites not only achieve those requirements but exceed them. We highly recommend Mary and her group and will continue to work with them in the future.”

Before starting her web development firm, Mary Lewis spent 16 years working closely with physicians in a local hospital. Her experience and expertise in the medical arena was invaluable in the redesign of this site.

“Over the past year, I have personally been involved in several meetings with CENTA and have gotten to know the doctors,” continued Lewis. “It’s a refreshing thing to meet a group of physicians who have been at the top of their field as long as they have—physicians with worldwide renown in all spheres of ENT—who are so passionate about their patients’ well being. It was a privilege designing a site that highlights the services they offer, and the compassion with which they offer those services to their patients.”

MaryDesigns®, LLC develops brand identity as well as SEO friendly business and eCommerce website solutions. As the owner of MaryDesigns, LLC, Mary Lewis has more than 13 years of experience designing creative, functional and cost-effective solutions for companies of all sizes. "Our clients know they top our agenda, and each one feels 'special' because of our hands-on, personalized, results-driven commitment.”

MaryDesigns’® clients include healthcare providers, attorneys, construction companies, day and medical spas, eCommerce web stores of all sizes and other businesses across the globe. MaryDesigns® is located on the south side of Indianapolis but handles clients throughout the central Indiana region, including the neighboring cities of Fishers, Carmel, Zionsville, Greenwood, and Columbus. Many of MaryDesigns’ clients represent regional and even national companies.

CENTA’s new website is a comprehensive brand solution for an active and growing medical practice. Visit the new website at centadocs. com and see why MaryDesigns is an excellent choice for medical website development. MaryDesigns is headquartered at 1350 W. Southport Rd in Indianapolis.

New Members Alert from The Leading Hotels of the World

New Members Alert from The Leading Hotels of the World

Independent Luxury Hospitality Leader Accepts Urban Jewels and Countryside Havens in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America

New York (Vocus) December 16, 2010

The Leading Hotels of the World is pleased to announce that it has recently accepted the following new member hotels:

Framed by idyllic countryside, Borgo Egnazia Hotel & Villas is a celebration of traditional Puglian architecture, situated among olive groves along Italy’s Adriatic coast. Executed in shades of white, guest accommodations maintain the tranquility of the resort’s bucolic surroundings, with airy interiors and abundant natural light. There are 63 guest rooms and suites, housed in the main hotel building and in the townhouses of the village area; while the 28 three-bedroom villas offer private pools, rooftop terraces, and private gardens. Restaurant options include Due Camini with indoor and outdoor dining, Beach Bambu, and Borgo Restaurant and Pizzeria. For recreation there are four pools, three tennis courts, an 18-hole championship golf course, fitness center and spa. Eight function rooms are available for meetings and banquets.

Shanti Maurice is a boutique lifestyle resort comprising 61 suites and 17 villas – each with its own private pool -- on 36 acres of landscaped tropical gardens, near the small town of St. Felix. Set along a pristine horseshoe coral sand cove on the largely untouched south coast of Mauritius, the hotel lies between the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and the vivid greens of the sugarcane fields, providing its guests with access to the sights, sounds and flavors of the unique mix of Indian, African, French and Chinese influences that form the local Creole culture. Restaurants include Stars, serving contemporary Cape cuisine; Fish and Rhum Shack, offering seafood and Mauritian specialties; Pebbles, featuring Indian and Creole fare; and Red Ginger Lounge & Bar. For relaxation there are water sports, the Nira Spa, an outdoor pool, tennis and a kids’ club.

Set in the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Kowloon, opposite the Cultural Center, Hullett House is just a short walk from the Star Ferry Terminal. Located in the former Marine Police Headquarters, it is named in honor of Richmond William Hullett, a dedicated botanist who discovered a variety of Bauhinia, also known as the orchid tree. The Bauhinia flower, with its delicate leaves, was adopted as the floral emblem of Hong Kong in 1965. The design-led heritage development consists of ten distinctive, intimate hotel suites complemented by attentive butler service; five restaurants and a boutique. Small meetings up to 30 people can be accommodated in two conference rooms.

Taj Falaknuma Palace, with its rare blend of Italian and Tudor architecture, is a splendid historical palace on a hill overlooking the 400-year-old Indian city of Hyderabad, known for its monuments, shopping boulevards and rich culture. With just 60 exceptionally proportioned guest rooms and suites set within expansive gardens, the newly opened hotel offers exceptional serenity in grand surroundings. Adaa is the venue for fine Indian cuisine, while Celeste features Italian and Mediterranean fare; afternoon tea is served in the Jade Room. In addition to the Jiva Gtande Spa, there is an outdoor pool and a health club and fitness center. There are also two conference and banquet rooms.

Chikusenso Mt. Zao Onsen Resort & Spa is cradled at the foot of Mt. Zao in one of the most beautiful regions of Japan. In the true spirit of “Omotenashi” (Japanese hospitality), the hotel offers guests incomparable service and attention to detail. Its 21 rooms and 11 suites each has its own private indoor or outdoor Onsen, living room, 40-inch Sony TV and Nespresso coffee machine. Kamajin restaurant serves an authentic Kaiseki-style menu, with ingredients carefully selected by the master chef from local sources. Also on offer are teppan-yaki of extra fine Sendai Beef and other seasonal food. The resort features a multi award-winning Spa Botanica and Seven Eden Wellness Gym. There are also two conference rooms, and a library with an extensive collection of books on Japanese history, culture, architecture, and lifestyle.

A ten-minute drive from the beaches or the night life of La Barra and Jose Ignacio in Uruguay, Hotel Fasano Punta del Este comprises 32 bungalow style villa suites situated harmoniously between the green plains and the River Maldonado. Long a favored destination for South America’s most sophisticated Punta del Este has been compared to New York’s fabled Hamptons. The gastronomic restaurant, that appears to have been carved into rocks with rugged stone walls and hardwood floors, boasts an upper outdoor deck with spectacular views of the 1000-acre estate all the way to the beachfront in the distance. Abundant recreation facilities include two tennis courts, the Fasano Spa by Renata de Abreu, a fitness center, and an indoor swimming pool. A nine-hole golf course designed by Arnold Palmer is due to open in 2012.

Norvax Introduces First E-mail Autoresponder That Can Automatically Include Health Insurance Quotes

Norvax Introduces First E-mail Autoresponder That Can Automatically Include Health Insurance Quotes

LeadMiner lets insurance agents contact customers faster and maintain automatic, ongoing communications for more sales.

(PRWEB) July 30, 2005

Norvax Inc., a leading developer of Web-based sales and customer communication tools for the insurance industry, today introduced LeadMiner, (http://www. norvax. com/promotions/leadminer-launch. html (http://www. norvax. com/promotions/leadminer-launch. html) the first e-mail autoresponder that can automatically include complete health insurance quotes to prospective customers. LeadMiner also lets agents automatically send a continuous flow of e-mails to prospects over a specified timeframe.

“With more and more consumers shopping for insurance on the Internet, agents need to be able to respond to online inquires quickly and efficiently, and LeadMiner lets them do exactly that,” said Clint Jones, CEO, Norvax. “LeadMiner is the premier choice for insurance agents looking for an effective and easy-to-use way to keep in touch with prospects to sell more policies. From automated thank-you notes to timed, sales-driven letters, LeadMiner helps agents increase sales by initiating contact with customers faster and maintaining ongoing communications automatically.”

Not your typical autoresponder:

All autoresponders can e-mail instant replies after customers complete an online form, but only LeadMiner lets agents send follow-up emails over time with embedded links to health insurance quotes customized for the recipient.

All three LeadMiner versions – Basic, Pro and Marketer – enable agents to automatically e-mail messages customized with their own information on a regular basis at intervals specified by the agent, which is particularly beneficial for communicating with prospects who haven’t purchased yet.

LeadMiner Pro goes one step further and lets agents automatically send HTML and text e-mails with instant, integrated health insurance quotes. It even automatically adds updated health insurance quotes to scheduled e-mails sent after the initial contact.

LeadMiner Marketer has all the features of LeadMiner Pro, plus 25 sales-driven marketing letters and a custom-designed, programmed template with the agentÂ’s information.

“Research shows that consumers need to see an ad at least seven times before they’ll make a buying decision,” said Jeremiah Desmarais, director, marketing and creative, Norvax. “With LeadMiner’s ability to generate automatic, ongoing e-mail messages, insurance agents can greatly increase their chances of making the sale.”

LeadMiner can be used to send messages to leads that are generated by an agentÂ’s Web site, purchased from ProspectZone, or imported from an external lead vendor. Simple to set up and use, LeadMiner lets agents easily keep track of all their message campaigns and quickly review all e-mail statistics, including the number of e-mails sent, e-mails sent to new leads, click throughs, number of proposals generated, and unsubscribe requests.

Available now, LeadMiner Basic, LeadMiner Pro and LeadMiner Marketer come in a variety of packages that include one to 25 auto responses per prospect per month. Pricing includes a one-time activation fee, which starts at $25, and a monthly fee, which starts at $15. Norvax also offers additional product training and support at a separate hourly fee.

About Norvax:

Norvax Inc. is a leading developer of Web-based sales and customer communication tools for the insurance industry that help insurance brokers, agents and carriers connect with customers and transact business more efficiently.

Kreitler Environmental Fund Announced at Virginia Seminary

Kreitler Environmental Fund Announced at Virginia Seminary

Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS), announced the creation of The Kreitler Environmental Fund, aimed to empower clergy and the church with a strong environmental ethic in order to help conserve and preserve the environment.

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) September 13, 2006

The Very Reverend Martha J. Horne, dean and president of Virginia Theological Seminary (VTS), announced the creation of The Kreitler Environmental Fund, aimed to empower clergy and the church with a strong environmental ethic in order to help conserve and preserve the environment.

“The Kreitler Environmental Fund is a wonderful tribute to the Kreitlers, as well as a splendid new resource for this community,” said Dean Horne, “It is vitally important for those who would be leaders in the Church to understand the responsibility we have to safeguard ‘this fragile earth, our island home’… this generous gift will enable us to equip men and women for the critical work of environmental stewardship in the congregations and neighborhoods in which they live and carry out their ministries.”

The Kreitler Environmental Fund is being established by Peter Gwillim Kreitler (VTS ’69), his wife Catharine B. Kreitler, brother Jay Kreitler, and friends, in memory of John (Jack) Henry Kreitler and Muriel (Billie) Gwillim Kreitler, the parents of Peter Gwillim and John (Jay) Taylor Kreitler.

“Our family has initiated this Environmental Fund because Virginia Seminary has had a long and distinguished heritage of sending men and women into the world in service to God throughout all of God’s creation,” said the Rev. Peter Gwillim Kreitler, minister for the Environment in the Diocese of Los Angeles and creator of the Southern California television Series, Earth Talk Today, “…this legacy has inspired the Kreitler family and friends to help foster and embolden new leadership informed by a strong environmental ethic that will help form a sustainable model for the future.”

“Our parents, Billie and Jack Kreitler, always had a great love of the Episcopal Church and God’s natural sanctuaries from Cape Cod to the Florida Keys… they became increasingly concerned that future generations would not inherit as healthy an environment and they encouraged me, my brother Jay and all our family in our desire to preserve the places we love.”

Once fully funded, the Fund will support initiatives such as lectures, fellowships, and scholarships. The Kreitler Environmental Lectures, which will be held at the Seminary every other year, will explore the ways one’s appreciation and stewardship of the environment is enhanced by informed theological beliefs; the Kreitler Environmental Fellowships, awarded to a member of the Episcopal Church on an every other year basis, who would be in residence at the Seminary for one month, will provide recipients opportunities to deepen the Seminary community’s understanding and appreciation of why, from a Christian perspective, the environment matters; and the Kreitler Environmental Scholarships, will provide financial assistance for a student or member of the faculty of the Seminary to participate in a significant international or national consultation, conference, or event related to the environment.

Contributions to support this important ministry may be sent to The Kreitler Environmental Fund at Virginia Theological Seminary, c/o The Very Rev. Martha J. Horne, 3737 Seminary Road, Alexandria, Virginia, 22304. For more information, contact Edwin K. Hall, Vice President for Institutional Advancement at 703-461-1711.

Virginia Theological Seminary is the largest of the 11 accredited seminaries of the Episcopal Church and was founded in 1823. The school prepares men and women, representing more than 40 different dioceses and 9 different countries, for service in the Church, both as ordained and lay ministers, and offers a number of professional degree programs and diplomas.

Lumenis® Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) Technology will be Featured on the Discovery Channel

Lumenis® Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) Technology will be Featured on the Discovery Channel

Lumenis® Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) Technology to be featured on the Discovery Channel, highlighting its significant clinical benefits to glaucoma patients worldwide.

Santa Clara, CA (Vocus) September 15, 2010

Lumenis® Ltd. one of the world's largest medical laser companies and a global developer, manufacturer and seller of laser, light-based and radiofrequency devices for ophthalmic, aesthetic, and surgical applications, announced today that its patented SLT technology for managing open-angle glaucoma will be featured on the Discovery Channel program, Health Heroes, during September 24-27, 2010.

“We are very excited that Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), a breakthrough technology for managing open-angle glaucoma that our company developed and brought to market, is being recognized by the Discovery Channel”, said Dov Ofer, President and CEO of Lumenis. “This validates yet again how this remarkable technology has positively impacted and improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of glaucoma patients worldwide.”

SLT technology was pioneered and introduced to the medical market by Lumenis in 2001, based on the scientific and clinical work of Mark Latina MD and colleagues. It is a safe and non-invasive in-office procedure that effectively reduces eye pressure in patients with open-angle glaucoma - the most common form of glaucoma. The SLT mechanism of action does not rely on costly medications. Instead, it utilizes an advanced non-thermal energy beam that selectively targets specific melanin-containing cells within the eye. This produces a natural biological response that leads to pressure drop very shortly after the treatment is performed.

“Glaucoma patients worldwide struggle with a debilitating condition that, if not carefully and properly managed, can result in significant vision loss and even blindness,” said Kfir Azoulay who heads Lumenis Vision’s Global Marketing Organization. “SLT offers these patients the benefit of a clinically proven treatment that can halt the progression of the disease and maintain their vision.” Mr. Azoulay also added: “We take immense pride in the fact that our technology has helped preserve the eyesight of hundreds of thousands of glaucoma patients worldwide, and has also reduced their dependency on daily intake of costly medications which also produce detrimental side effects.”

Health Heroes is an exciting program that identifies and explores today's latest medical advances in all areas of health and wellness. Developed through the real life experiences of industry experts, physicians and their patients, this series combines scientific and clinical data with touching story telling, to deliver the best and most accurate information to viewers.

The program boasts interviews with renowned glaucoma specialists and technology experts, among which Jason Bacharach MD, Jorge Alvarado MD, Alan Robin MD, Tom Brunner (President of the Glaucoma Research Foundation), and others.

'Soul Currency' Author Ernest Chu, Israel Composer and Peace Activist Eliana Gilad to Explore Common Ground in Ancient Hebrew, Chinese Spiritual Teachings in June 26 Teleconference

'Soul Currency' Author Ernest Chu, Israel Composer and Peace Activist Eliana Gilad to Explore Common Ground in Ancient Hebrew, Chinese Spiritual Teachings in June 26 Teleconference

A Chinese-American Religious Science minister from Fort Lauderdale and an American-Israeli musician in Galilee will teach peace in a free one-hour teleconference and webcast beginning at 1 p. m. Eastern (8 p. m. in Israel) on Tuesday, June 26.

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) June 19, 2007

When someone cuts you off in traffic, endangering you and the drivers behind you, can you stay calm?

When your boss gives the promotion you worked for and deserved to someone else, can you be in peace about it?

Tougher: If you live in a city such as Baghdad, where it is not safe to stay home and not safe to go out, is it even possible to maintain peace of mind and heart? How and where does one find peace in a war zone?

The answers are:
1) Yes, it's possible to stay in peace, no matter what.
2) The secret -- the way to peace in any circumstance -- is within the mind and heart of every human being.

Two 21st-Century spiritual teachers will explore the way to inner peace during a June 26 teleconference (simulcast on the web) conducted by the Rev. Ernest D. Chu, a Chinese-American Religious Science minister and descendant of Zhu Xi, the 12th-Century founder of Neo-Confucianisman. Chu and Eliana Gilad, an American-Israeli healing music composer and peace leader, will explore common ground in the peace teachings and practices of their ancestors, extracting wisdom and guidance for all who seek a way to stay peaceful in the face of any circumstance.

The free teleconference, accessible by phone & webcast, will begin at 1 p. m. Eastern time (8 p. m. in Israel).

Gilad will speak not only from tradition, but from her own life experience. She lives peacefully in Galilee with Jews, Christians and Muslims, practicing daily what she teaches. "If I find it here, in this place that is conventionally communicated through mass media as a dark and dangerous place, then you, too, can discover inner harmony in your life," she says.

At the Voices of Eden Healing Music Center (www. VoicesofEden. com), which she founded in the hills of Galilee, Gilad teaches a Sacred Healing Music Course and organizes living peace tours of the Holy Land (www. sacredpeacetours. com). She is an internationally recognized expert in the conscious use of voice and rhythm as a natural healer, as they were used in ancient times; she describes herself as "a descendant of the ancient Hebrew matriarchal lineage who used voice and rhythm as a means of finding inner balance and outer peace."

Gilad has performed at the United Nations, and she has presented her unique wordless vocal music throughout the US, Canada, Israel, and Europe. During last year's Hezbollah-Israel war Gilad wrote, "Quiet in the Eye of the Storm: Living Peace in a War Zone," a downloadable book (www. peace-in-war. com), providing practical ways of remaining at ease, even when all goes awry.

During the teleconference, Gilad will lead a music meditation and invite participants to experience a way to "use your body as an instrument to easily connect with your inner balance through a simple exercise inspired by the ancient sages of the East."

"We are at an apex in time," says Chu. "Our world sits precariously on a precipice overlooking human, moral and emotional and societal destruction and decay. Values are breaking down. While we cannot change what happens 'out there,' we have absolute control over how we respond inside ourselves.

"In this teleseminar, we will explore the ancient past in order to unearth simple but powerful truths from the eastern world that can provide us with missing ingredients to achieving inner harmony," he continues. "By choosing to connect to our inner peace, even in the midst of disaster, we can remain calm and centered." For the teleconference, Chu will draw from the wealth of ancient Chinese teachings about achieving inner peace, harmony, health and prosperity.

Chu's Chinese roots and his leadership position in the New Thought movement make him a living example of balanced energy (yin-yang). A former investment banker, he now serves as assistant pastor at the Center for Spiritual Living in Fort Lauderdale and founding director of The Soul Currency Institute (www. SoulCurrency. org), based in Deerfield Beach, FL. New World Library will publish Chu's forthcoming book, "Soul Currency: The Secret of Being Well Paid for Doing What Really Fulfills You," as its lead title in the Fall of 2008.

To sign up for the free teleconference and webcast, please visit this page on The Soul Currency Institute's website: http://www. soulcurrency. org/tp40/page. asp? ID=51828 (http://www. soulcurrency. org/tp40/page. asp? ID=51828).

The institute will email the call-in number and password to all registrants. Although access to the one-hour call is free for all who join via the webcast, long-distance charges are the responsibility of each person who participates via phone call. Many callers avoid long-distance charges by using Skype phones or cell phones will available minutes, according to the institute.

Little Girl's Death Allegedly Linked to Medical Errors: Former Fighter Pilots Offer a Solution

Little Girl's Death Allegedly Linked to Medical Errors: Former Fighter Pilots Offer a Solution

Memphis, TN (PRWEB) April 17, 2006

While recuperating from burns at a prominent children's center, 18-month-old Josie needlessly died due to medical errors. The Baltimore Sun reported Josie's cause of death a result of severe dehydration, ultimately leading to cardiac arrest. The children's center, which is consistently ranked in the top three children's hospitals in the nation by U. S. News & World Report, allegedly overlooked the warning signs and series of events leading up to her death. Fortunately, there is a company that offers a pioneering approach to patient safety, which may prevent tragedies such as these.

LifeWings Partners LLC offers a groundbreaking safety and communication system originating from a proven aviation-based model known as Crew Resource Management (CRM). CRM was first introduced to flight crews in the early 1980's to help reduce errors and improve communication among teams in the air.

Now, LifeWings offers health care organizations the same safety system that has made commercial aviation so safe and reliable. LifeWings is implementing CRM in health care facilities throughout the United States to minimize error and prevent sentinel events. The LifeWings approach is a combination of teamwork training and implementation of standardized Hardwired Safety Tools SM (procedures, protocols, checklists) that are customized based on the needs of the facility.

One component of the LifeWings program is classroom training, which focuses on recognizing the warning signs of adverse situations. The section also teaches health care teams how to identify, communicate, and take action when a "red flag" situation occurs. As a team, the participants review case studies and determine the warning signs of an impending adverse event.

According to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, poor communication remains at the top of the list as the root cause of sentinel events. Most physicians and staff have not been adequately trained in the skills needed to effectively communicate. LifeWings works on building these communication and teamwork skills to reduce the chance of error.

However, some in the health care industry are reluctant to invest in this innovative approach because of perceived cost and an organization's bottom line. Fortunately, LifeWings' clients do not have to tradeoff patient safety for profit. Richard Clark, Vice President of LifeWings says, "If only one patient-harming event could be avoided it would cover the cost of this kind of training many times over.”

Patricia Murafetis, the Assistant Director of Medicine at Coney Island Hospital (New York, NY), who recently participated in the LifeWings training said, "Do it! You'll be surprised how avoiding errors in health care is so similar to avoiding mishaps in aviation."

To learn how to use aviation-based strategies in a health care setting there is a new book out titled, "Crew Resource Management Training: The Flight Plan for Lasting Change in Patient Safety." The book, co-authored by LifeWings President, Steve Harden, Dr. Rhea Seddon and Dr. Drew Gaffney (both active physicians and former NASA astronauts), is available at www. hcmarketplace. com.

About LifeWings Partners LLC

LifeWings Partners LLC was founded by a former U. S. Navy Top Gun instructor and commercial airline pilot. The firm specializes in applying aviation-based teamwork training and safety tools to help health care facilities save patient lives and reduce costs. The firm has helped over 50 facilities nationwide provide better care to their patients. Measurable results are found in all LifeWings initiatives, including one hospital that experienced a 43% improvement in their Observed to Expected mortality figures. The firm also conducts Leadership Development workshops for health care executives and leaders.

Dittmar Associates' Market Study for the Space Exploration Program

Dittmar Associates' Market Study for the Space Exploration Program

On the eve of the Presidential election, Americans continue to support human space flight and endorse the Space Exploration plan to return to the Moon and to Mars, but they also question the relationship of NASA to its constituents.

(PRWEB) October 22, 2004

A comprehensive, in-depth study by Dittmar Associates aimed at understanding public perceptions of NASA and particularly the Space Exploration Program reveals that Americans continue to support human space flight, with 69% supporting Space Exploration and 26% opposed. In addition, when provided information about the percentage of the U. S. budget allocated to NASA each year (less than 1%), 42% of the respondents indicated that it should be increased, 29% said it should be decreased, and 29% believed it should remain at its current level.

In an announcement on October 20, Dittmar Associates described the study, in which the researchers invited participants to offer their own ideas, thoughts, and suggestions as if they could be heard by NASA. The results of the study are therefore similar to a marketing survey, but more importantly they serve as a dialogue – one-sided though it may be – between a sample of the American public and its space agency. Some of the results include:

42% of Americans believe that NASA is either “very relevant” or “relevant” to their day-to-day lives;

Americans are concerned about terrorism, healthcare, and education, but the degree to which they believe NASA is relevant to their daily lives is the most important determinant of their attitudes toward funding;

61% of Americans indicated that the success of the Mars Rovers has had a positive effect on attitudes toward NASA in general, but this does not necessarily carry over to human space flight;

79% of respondents believe that NASA is “marketed” poorly or very poorly

When given the opportunity, Americans have a variety of suggestions about how to better promote the space program and make it more relevant to them personally.

An abridged summary including some of these results is available for free download at the Dittmar Associates website, www. dittmar-associates. com The complete, final report presents information analyzed by demographic variables including age, ethnic background, region of the country, marital status, political party, and dependents, and delves more deeply into the perceptions, desires, concerns and suggestions expressed by study participants in response to questions about NASA and its missions, particularly the Space Exploration program.

The final report will be available for sale on the Dittmar Associates website on November 10, 2004.

About Dittmar Associates:

The Adventures of Larry Leptin Cartoon Exposes the Dangers of Genetically Modified Foods in 'Invasion of the Frankenfood'

The Adventures of Larry Leptin Cartoon Exposes the Dangers of Genetically Modified Foods in 'Invasion of the Frankenfood'

America's food supply is under attack from Genetically Manipulated Foods (GMOs) and the FDA continues to experiment on all of us! Americas new Super Hero has arrived! Wellness Resources Inc. presents Larry Leptin™, defending your right to be healthy.

Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) January 25, 2010

In the 2010 growing season Monsanto plans to unleash its latest Frankenfood experiment on the American and Canadian public, a new version of genetically mutated corn with eight abnormal gene traits. America's food supply is under major GMO assault and the FDA continues to use us as human lab rats.

Do you know what you're eating? Do you really know how these genetic alterations to food will affect you and your family? The genetic modification of our food supply is untested and side effects may not be known until it is too late.

"As health educators and protectors, we need to raise awareness of the toxic effect of genetically modified foods and the behind the scene way these foods are approved and integrated into our food supply." says founder of Wellness Resources and clinical nutritionist, Byron J. Richards, "that is why we created Superhero Larry Leptin™ and this animation."

Richards discusses major health concerns with GMO foods, the careless entry of GMOs into our food supply, and the permissive viewpoint of government regulators in his latest article "Health Scandal of the Decade - Monsanto's GMO Perversion of Food" (http://www. wellnessresources. com/freedom/articles/health_scandal_of_the_decade_monsantos_gmo_perversion_of_food/) He notes "President Obama and his family won't eat it. Neither did the Bush family. Even a Monsanto employee cafeteria rejects it…" Ask yourself: If Monsanto employees won't even eat the food they produce, why in the world should you eat this poison? Richards also strongly encourages us to stand up for our health and take action.

Superhero Larry Leptin™ shares these vital messages in "The Invasion of the Frankenfood." (http://www. LarryLeptin. com) This witty and powerful animation shows the dangers of GMO corn in a satirical and entertaining way and helps expose the behind the door collusion and cronyism that really has occurred to make GMOs a "normal" way of life.

The Larry Leptin™ creators, Mary and Byron Richards, are leading advocates for health freedom.

Analysis of the worldwide LCD TV market for the years 2004-2008

Analysis of the worldwide LCD TV market for the years 2004-2008

Research and Markets (http://www. researchandmarkets. com/reports/c11088) has announced the addition of Worldwide LCD TV 2004-2008 Forecast and Analysis: Thin Is In to their offering

(PRWEB) December 13, 2004

This study examines the worldwide LCD TV market for the years 2004-2008. Healthy supply and aggressive brand competition in the LCD TV market will lead to mass-market prices, which in turn will lead to the selling of these products within mass-market channels such as Wal-Mart and Costco along with traditional computer and audiovisual establishments. Following the well-charted path laid forth by LCD monitors, LCD TV performance will become commoditized, unit growth for certain size segments will depend entirely on price, brand loyalty will fade, and healthy Internet sales will follow? markedly different from traditional face-to-face TV-buying habits.

"The emergence and maturation of the LCD TV market will impose slow but inevitable downward pricing pressure on all television technologies in the near term. LCD TVs, of course, need to come down in price, come up in size, and then exhibit both trends at the same time to be a legitimate threat against direct-view CRT and RPTV. As such, the demise of the CRT-based television is not slated to happen until well after the end of our forecast period." ? Eric Haruki, research manager, Displays and Projectors research.

Maine Citizens Ask: Must I Really Strip and Shave for My Dentist?

Maine Citizens Ask: Must I Really Strip and Shave for My Dentist?

Shy about going to the dentist now? Just wait. If the Maine Board of Dental Examiners gets its way, women in the state who require certain "standard of care" dental procedures will have to bare their chests to their dentists. This is not a joke. The MBDE is the first and only dental board in the country to propose that all dental patients who wish to receive a form of standard pain and anxiety sedation be required to have an electrocardiogram (ECG) administered in their dentists' offices. In order to place ECG electrodes properly, women patients will have to bare their chests and men will need to let their dentists shave body hair.

Augusta, ME (PRWEB) September 10, 2008

Hard as it is to believe, the State of Maine dental board is poised to approve new regulations that will require some patients to "strip and shave" for even common dental procedures, such as root canals and fillings, according to a group calling itself "Stop the Pain in Maine".

The approval could come as early as Friday, September 12, when the Maine Board of Dental Examiners (MBDE) votes on a plan to require Maine dentists to administer an electrocardiogram (ECG) to all patients who opt for a popular, safe form of pain and anxiety sedation.

Maine will become the only state in the nation to ask dentists to place electrodes on their patients' bare chests, arms and legs in order to administer this widely accepted "standard-of-care" sedation, according to the group. Local dentists note that many physicians prescribe the exact same medication to patients, who administer it to themselves at home without any medical supervision whatsoever.

Dr. Michael Silverman, a nationally recognized expert on so-called "oral conscious sedation" says the Maine dental board's proposed ECG requirement is "patently absurd." More than 2 million adults in the U. S. have been treated safely, painlessly and effectively by their family dentists using the exact same sedation medication without the need for an ECG, Dr. Silverman notes.

Neither the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry nor Dr. Silverman's organization - DOCS Education - recommend the use of an ECG for the same protocols Maine's board says require an ECG.

Maine residents who are already squeamish about visiting their dentist now face the very real specter of having their dentists require them to remove their shirts or blouses. (To be effective, some dentists may ask women patients to remove their bras as well.) The ECG may also require dentists to shave body hair off their patients, in order to be effective.

Oral conscious sedation, also known as OCS, has helped high-anxiety dental patients receive fear-free dental treatments for more than a decade. Last fall, after a prolonged and in-depth review, the American Dental Association issued nationwide guidelines for OCS to ensure its safe use by family dentists. The ADA guidelines do not require or even recommend the use of an ECG.

Some local Maine family dentists believe the Maine dental board is seeking to require the use of an ECG in a thinly veiled bid to force patients in the state to seek out higher-priced dental specialists, including oral surgeons.

"This is all about greed, not public safety," says Daniel L. Steinke, D. D.S., M. A.G. D., one of the concerned Maine dentists. "Members of the Maine dental board are betting that rather than having dentists placing electrodes under their blouses/shirts, most patients will seek out the high-priced specialists or avoid the dentist altogether."

It is the likelihood that patients in Maine will avoid the dentist altogether that has Dr. Steinke and his fellow Maine dentists so concerned. He points out that the medical evidence is abundant showing a correlation between poor oral health and poor overall general health.

Dentists nationwide have contacted the Maine dental board and Governor John E. Baldacci, who appoints members to the board, to point out the harm the new rules will unleash. Governor Baldacci has made access to care and preventive medicine one of the foundations of his administration.

The Maine dentists are asking area residents to phone Governor Baldacci at 207-287-3531 to express their opposition to the Maine dental board's proposals. The board is scheduled to approve the measures this Friday, September 12, 2008.

CBL Data Recovery Technologies Inc. Expands Data Recovery Facilities In Brazil To Meet Growth In Hard Drive Recovery Services

CBL Data Recovery Technologies Inc. Expands Data Recovery Facilities In Brazil To Meet Growth In Hard Drive Recovery Services

Data recovery lab facility expansion bolsters South American presence to address growing hard drive recovery needs in the region

Armonk, NY / San Diego, CA (PRWEB) November 15, 2004 -

CBL Data Recovery Technologies Inc.

The growth of CBLÂ’s Brazilian data recovery operations (http://www. cbltech. com. br) follows on the heels of the companyÂ’s recent expansion in San Diego, California and Singapore, as well as the opening of a data recovery lab in Japan.

“Clearly there was a need to expand our data recovery operations to meet growing demands in Brazil and all of South America,” says CBL CEO Bill Margeson. “Time is a critical factor when providing data recovery services, so enlarging our physical presence in the region enables us to better serve customers in a prompt, efficient manner.”

In the past year, CBL has seen greater awareness of the importance of backing up mission critical information to preserve business continuity, yet the reality is that itÂ’s just a matter of when, not if, a severe data loss will occur.

“The increased demand for our services in Brazil is the latest indication that data recovery and the mindset of a healthy data infrastructure are concepts that are gaining ground. We can see this particularly among enterprise organizations, as well as storage media vendors,” adds Margeson. “This same demand has driven our rapid growth in Singapore, expansion in San Diego, our opening in Japan as well as the continued success of our labs world wide.”

A leader in its field, CBL is a multinational data recovery organization with facilities in the United States, Canada, Brazil, Barbados, England, Germany, China, Singapore, Japan and Australia. The company has been focused solely on the data recovery market for more than a decade. Through its on-going research and development efforts, CBL has created a library of proprietary processes to successfully recover data from failed PC hard disk drives when all other conventional methods have failed.

Andri Chemical of America Acquires American Chemical Inc. in a Nation-Wide Consolidation of Manufacturing and Marketing Strategies

Andri Chemical of America Acquires American Chemical Inc. in a Nation-Wide Consolidation of Manufacturing and Marketing Strategies

Andri Chemical of America acquired peer competitor American Chemical Inc, both located in Southeast Florida in a strategic marketing and operational maneuver to take advantage of joint manufacturing capabilities and sales force expertise. Andri Chemical manufactures and markets cleaning supplies and janitorial materials. American Chemicals sells chemical supplies, soaps and detergents, including fragrances, deodorizers and laundry supplies.

Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) August 8, 2006

According to Andri Chemical president, Luis Perez-Mena, Andri's excess manufacturing capability provided an excellent opportunity for operational efficiencies of scale, and the large client base and trained sales force of American Chemical provide new marketing impetus and strength for a combined marketing and sales optimization effort.

As a combined enterprise, Andri Chemical will continue to service all existing clients of both companies. Their product line will include soaps, detergents, fabric softeners, both of their own manufacture as well as third party brands, aimed at the commercial and industrial markets and such businesses as laundries, car washes, hotels, motels, and restaurants. Andri will also continue to offer janitorial supplies and materials to support their clients across all industries.

The acquisition has resulted in no negative labor impact on personnel, and any potential downsizing will be handled through natural attrition. At the same time, the Andri has announced a benefits analysis plan to combine the best attributes of both companies into an affordable plan with more attractive benefits for all employees.

American Chemical's previous owner, John Fontaine, said the the combination of the two companies came at the optimum time, as he was suffering from health issues and this transaction provides him the opportunity to stay involved on a management consulting basis but without such stringent time demands.


San Francisco Libertarians Protest Income Taxes

San Francisco Libertarians Protest Income Taxes

Activists from the Libertarian Party of San Francisco will be gathering outside the Montgomery BART/Muni station to protest the state and federal income taxes, 4:00-7:00 P. M. on Thursday, April 15.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 15, 2004

In an annual ritual repeated around the country, Libertarian activists in San Francisco will be protesting the annual shearing of America's taxpayers and educating the public about voluntary alternatives to legalized theft.

Activists from the Libertarian Party of San Francisco will gather at the Montgomery BART and Muni station in downtown San Francisco, where the IRS will be "servicing" productive wage-earners by taking their money, from 4:00 to 7:00 P. M. this evening.

Libertarians believe that taking money from someone by force, even for a good cause, is theft. Voluntary charity and user fees, they say, will result in a healthier society, better care for those unable to care for themselves, and a more vibrant economy.

As government services have no competition, the money is often spent inefficiently, "or just flat-out wasted," says Chris Maden, Chair of the city Libertarians. "Private charities respond to market pressure. If we allowed people to spend their taxes locally and directly--by giving dollar-for-dollar tax credits for charitable contributions--eventually we'd be able to phase out income taxes altogether."

Americans are the most generous people in the world, as measured by the percentage of take-home pay given to charity. If income taxes were ended, it would be the equivalent of a 25% pay raise for most workers, and charitable giving would rise accordingly. "Without that money filtering through a red-tape laden government bureaucracy, it would go a lot farther," adds Maden.

About LPSF:

The Libertarian Party of San Francisco (www. lpsf. org) is the local affiliate of the Libertarian Party (www. lp. org), the largest "third party" in the United States. Libertarians believe in personal freedom, in both social and economic spheres, and in minimal government to protect those freedoms. The Libertarian Party is running a wide range of partisan and non-partisan candidates in the 2004 elections.

Healthcare Company That Put Lipodissolve on the Map Changes Name

Healthcare Company That Put Lipodissolve on the Map Changes Name

Go fig.™ -- Pioneer center expands core service offerings; exclusive procedures to dissolve fat.

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 23, 2007

Advanced LipoDissolve Center, the healthcare company that made permanent fat dissolution readily accessible to a broad base of patients, is changing its name. The initiative reflects the center's rapid growth, the expansion of its product and service offerings and its commitment to helping people define their own beautiful shape.

The body shaping center's new name is "fig."; all lower-case but standing tall when it comes to being the leader in medically supervised body shaping. Fig. is the scientific abbreviation for figure; but it is the human figure of its patients that the team of highly trained medical professionals seeks to help shape.

After creating and leading the field of medically supervised body shaping through the non-surgical cosmetic procedure lipodissolve, the reason for the change became evident - exclusive new technologies, diagnostic tools, services and new markets - all reasons that contributed to the need to select a name that speaks to the benefit of the center's core offering while maintaining a personality that's consistent with the joy of the fig. patients experience when they see measurable results.

"Ask any CEO of a fast-growing company if they'd change the name of their business in the middle of a meteoric rise and you'd probably get a hearty 'fat chance'," fig. CEO Rob Semaan said. "But when you look at the idea more closely, it makes perfect sense. The new name, fig., gives us room to introduce a more comprehensive set of products and services that will better enable us to support our patients with their body shaping needs."

And while Advanced LipoDissolve™ remains at the heart of fig.'s body shaping and inch-loss service offerings, one of the first new and exciting enhancements that patients will benefit from immediately is the FinerForme Laser™, available exclusively at fig.

The FinerForme Laser is an FDA-approved, patent-pending, non-invasive cold laser technology that is not only completely painless, but when used in conjunction with fig.'s proprietary Advanced LipoDissolve procedure, has been shown to reduce the sometimes mild to moderate discomfort associated with all lipodissolve treatments.

"The FinerForme Laser™ and our other new offerings to come will further enable fig., the leading authority on non-surgical medical technologies and individualized inch-loss programs, to help patients achieve their desired body shape," said Dr. David Caplin, board-certified plastic surgeon and fig.'s Medical Director in St. Louis.

Advanced LipoDissolve is fig's exclusive medical procedure that targets "frustration fat" with no surgery, no downtime and guaranteed results. You might wonder what makes it advanced. The answer is:

A highly trained team of medical professionals led by board-certified plastic surgeons. Proprietary and exclusive medical protocols, which include the use of the FinerForme Laser, available only at fig. Over 85,000 treatments provided to date nationwide, making fig. the most experienced worldwide leader and expert in medically supervised body shaping.

Fig.'s practical, proven and exclusive body shaping technologies and personalized service motivate patients to achieve their desired, healthier body image with no surgery, no downtime and permanent results. Patients are guaranteed measurable inch loss, a promise backed by thousands of success stories to date.

Fig. has centers in St. Louis, Kansas City, Las Vegas, and Scottsdale. In 2007, fig. plans to open in Houston, Atlanta, Dallas, and Los Angeles as well as Kentucky, Florida and Ohio.
