Global Heat Exchangers Market to Reach US$12.72 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc

Global Heat Exchangers Market to Reach US$12.72 Billion by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Heat Exchangers market. Global Heat Exchangers market is projected to reach about US$12.72 billion by the year 2015. Growth in the market is especially driven by factors such as rising need for energy efficiency, replacement demand, tightening legislation, rising greenfield projects and renewed capacity expansion.

San Jose, California (Vocus) August 15, 2010

Energy savings is rapidly emerging into a massive industry worldwide, and this global trend towards significantly reducing heat energy costs, and increasing energy efficiency has and will continue to witness heat exchangers emerge as the greatest beneficiary. The large installed base of aging heat exchangers will require periodic renewal and upgrading. Natural wear-and-tear of heat exchangers and modernization initiatives adopted in key end-user industries will additionally magnify the business opportunity offered by replacements. Evolution of new product designs with value added functional features and benefits will provide the sweetener required for pushing equipment replacement demand to the fore. Competition in the global heat exchangers market has, over the last few years, intensified largely as a result of the emergence of low cost Asian manufacturers. New entrants from Russia, Eastern Europe, and South East Asian nations such as India, and China have made remarkable in-roads into the international heat exchangers market, making prices more competitive. And, as vendors are willing to accept tighter margins in favor of higher volume orders, pricing will be the core competitive factor in the marketplace. Such aggressive pricing strategies have forced major providers to reduce their prices, and operate on thin margins. The situation has been exacerbated by tough economic climate, which has induced cash-strapped end users to place a greater emphasis on cost rather than quality while buying new products.

As stated in the new market research report, North America and Europe collectively account for more than 50% share of the global Heat Exchangers market. Demand sensitivity for heat exchangers varies across end-use sectors with demand in traditional end-use segments like the chemical industry prone to exhibit knee-jerk sensitivity to economic conditions, while demand in end-user industries such as in oil and gas, and nuclear power tend to display more resilience to unfavorable economic conditions. Given the significant investments in energy and petrochemical sectors, these industries have displayed remarkable resilience, especially in the developing markets. The market for Heat Exchangers in HVAC and Refrigeration Industry in the Asia-Pacific is forecast to reach US$271.13 million by the year 2015, growing at a fastest CAGR of 5.96% during the analysis period.

Interestingly, the ongoing global economic recession has fuelled, and sharpened the emphasis on utilization of energy saving equipment, and heat exchangers is once again the prime beneficiary of this trend. This scenario is especially pronounced in countries like China where the energy savings sector is particularly supported by the government’s economic stimulus plan thus sheltering the industry from the economic downturn. Environmental concerns, and related legislations therefore further push the economic incentives for adopting energy efficient technologies and products. Growth rates in emerging nations are encouraging, although coming from a much smaller base due to low penetration rate. The market for Plate and Frame Heat Exchangers in Latin America is forecast to reach US$283.5 million by the year 2015, growing at a CAGR of 6.95% during the analysis period.

Additionally, healthy demand for heat exchangers for nuclear power plants, keeping in view the growing focus on nuclear power as a alternative for conventional energy, is expected to contribute to new growth. With a number of new nuclear reactors expected to be constructed and commissioned worldwide, strong growth opportunities exist in this space.

Key players in this marketplace include Alfa Laval AB, Americans Precision Industries Heat Transfer, Balcke-Dürr GmbH, Bell & Gossett Inc, GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft, Hamon Group, Hisaka Works Ltd, Modine Manufacturing Company, Sondex A/S, SPX Cooling Technologies Inc SPX Corporation, Tranter Inc., among others.

The report titled “Heat Exchangers: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., provides a review of noteworthy market trends, growth drivers and challenges. The report in addition also enumerates recent acquisitions, and other strategic industry activities. The report offers market estimates and projections for world Heat Exchangers market in dollar sales for the following regional markets: US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan), Latin America and Rest of World. The report offers demand estimates and projections for the global market by the following product segments - Shell and Tube, Plate and Frame, Air Coolers, Cooling Towers and Other Heat Exchangers. End-use segments analyzed include - Chemicals Industry, Fuel Processing, HVAC and Refrigeration, Food and Beverage, Power Generation and Other Applications Markets.

Narconon Georgia Graduate Celebrates Three Years Clean

Narconon Georgia Graduate Celebrates Three Years Clean

Celebrating more than three years clean, Jason Lawing of Asheville, North Carolina has come a long way from the days when he was making and selling 1-2 kilos of methamphetamine a week.

Norcross, GA (PRWEB) October 21, 2009

Facing jail time in 2006, his mother and biggest advocate convinced the judge that Jason was not a criminal, but a drug addict that needed help. She believed her son could make it if he were in a long-term drug treatment program (http://www. drugsno. com/narconon_pgm. htm), unavailable at the time, in her own state. She searched online and found what she was looking for - Narconon of Georgia, a non-traditional program (http://www. drugsno. com/) which employs sauna therapy and life skills to prepare its clients for full and successful re-entry into life.

Jason graduated from the Narconon program after four months. He returned to Asheville and immediately went to work at his father's company, Allied Wheel and Alignment in West Asheville. "Life after Narconon is a whole lot better! In my darkest hours, I never thought I could be this happy. Now every day is a healthy bright day after Narconon for me and my family," said Jason. So profound was his recovery, he was awarded full custody of his son by the courts over his ex-girlfriend. A couple of years later Jason's story of successful recovery was chronicled in the Asheville Citizen Times.

Three and half years after graduation from Narconon of Georgia (http://www. drugsno. com/), Jason continues to live life to the fullest. "My son is the most wonderful thing to me and I will make sure that he never follows the same path that I took. My mother and father are proud and no longer have to worry about me," added Jason

Since being featured in the Asheville Citizen Times, he completed ED BARGY'S racing school. He soon qualified for motorcycle road racing with WERA (West, East Racers Association). At his first race at Nashville Super Speedway, Jason started 47th and finished 9th. He continued to the Nationals (which are by invitation only) and finished 18th in the country, no small feat for new kid on the block

Work at the family company is going well for Jason. Since completing his Narconon drug treatment program, he no longer gets frustrated and can complete tasks at hand. His talents are an asset to his family's company, which has managed to do well in spite of the economy.

Jason future plans include to raising his son as a sober parent, working to expand the family business and becoming a pro racer.

Mary Rieser stated, "I am proud of Jason and happy that I had the opportunity to help such a special person. Jason's full recovery from drug addiction (http://www. drugsno. com/addiction. htm) and now living a happy and productive life is testament to the facts that stable recovery is achievable for those who want it and Narconon is truly the New Life Program."

Massage Chairs Offer Relief From Obesity Related Back Pain

Massage Chairs Offer Relief From Obesity Related Back Pain

With a growing number of Americans suffering from obesity related back pain, massage chair company Premier Health Products is providing much needed relief. Massage chairs are an affordable way to receive the healing benefits of daily massage.

(PRWEB) June 2, 2005

According to the American Obesity Society 64.5 percent of Americans over twenty years old are overweight and 30.5 percent are obese. These figures represent the growing epidemic of obesity in the United States which is costing billions of dollars in additional health care expenses. Each year, increasing numbers Americans are finding themselves classified as clinically obese and are suffering from one or more of over thirty obesity related diseases. Premier Massage Chairs. org www. premiermassagechairs. org offers natural solutions for a variety of obesity related health problems.

The most serious obesity related health complications are coronary heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure. Another, less discussed obesity related health complication, is back pain. Increased occurrence of back pain in obese people is caused by the added strain on the spine from excess body weight. The body is designed to function under healthy weight conditions combined with regular exercise. Obesity however creates stressful conditions that the spine is unable to adapt too. Added weight causes the spine to increase its natural curve causing the pelvis to tip forward. This compensation decreases the structural stability of the spine causing overall back health to decline.

Some of the more common obesity related spinal problems are osteoporosis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoporosis decreases bone density, increasing the likelihood of painful and disabling fractures. The risk of osteoporosis is increased with lack of exercise and a poor diet. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are caused by unnatural pressure placed on the joints from excess body weight. Massage chairs are an excellent means for relieving this pressure and improving back health www. premiermassagechairs. org/education. html (http://www. premiermassagechairs. org/education. html).

The most effective way to help relieve obesity related back problems is to lose weight. Even loosing just ten or fifteen pounds can greatly improve spinal health. Massage therapy is another useful way to reduce back pain. Massage stimulates blood circulation, increasing the flow of healing nutrients to the joints and muscles, as well as helping the body flush pain causing lactic acids and other toxins from sore muscles.

Electric massage chairs are an affordable way to receive the pain relieving benefits of massage therapy.

Construction Owners Association of America Partners with e-Builder to Provide Online Knowledge Base and Collaboration Portal

Construction Owners Association of America Partners with e-Builder to Provide Online Knowledge Base and Collaboration Portal

E-Builder Enterprise to provide COAA members with 24x7 access to information resources addressing best practices related to improving the capital project lifecycle

Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) December 16, 2009

e-Builder, the leading provider of integrated capital program and project management software (http://www. e-builder. net/capital-program-management-software. html), announced today that the Construction Owners Association of America (COAA) (http://www. coaa. org) has launched an online e-Catalog that leverages portions of the e-Builder Enterprise project management system including the document management and collaboration modules. The system provides a resource for ideas that allow members to see how others have approached similar construction-related problems and processes. The COAA Cataloging Committee is currently organizing the electronic catalog, which will be built by sharing the immense intellectual capital available through COAA's membership.

As part of the process of building this knowledge base, owner members will be asked to supply a variety of sample letters, forms and other non-copyrighted documents to share with other owner members. The web-based portal will provide a channel for COAA members to conveniently upload and organize documents and information resources, and continuously expand a knowledge base that will be cultivated by professionals engaged in the planning, design, construction and operations of complex facilities. Six owner members have already provided more than 600 documents for use in the pilot program.

E-Builder Enterprise is an integrated capital project management software (http://www. e-builder. net/capital-project-management-software. html) that incorporates cost controls, scheduling, business process automation, and document management capabilities in one user friendly, fast to deploy solution. Jonathan Antevy, e-Builder CEO and co-founder, said "this endeavor clearly demonstrates COAA's desire to be a leader in promoting the use of innovative technology solutions to help owners improve how they deliver capital projects and we are proud to be a contributor".

Terry Cook, COAA President said, "We are extremely excited about our new e-Catalog program. We know that there is wealth of knowledge among our members and partnering with e-Builder is allowing us to provide yet another means for peer-to-peer collaboration."

About COAA:
Building Owners and Developers build, not as a primary business, but as a secondary objective. Owners and Developers stand alone in the complex, changing construction process, representing themselves in a major financial commitment. The management of the design and construction process requires knowledge of an industry whose technology evolves and changes continuously. It requires interfacing with all the groups involved in the construction process. Timing becomes critical to the owner's bottom line. Changes and decision-making endlessly occur. Disputes and litigation may become an issue. Owners and Developers, both public and private, have needed a forum. A meeting place to gather, share common goals, learn, discuss, survey the future and share a collective voice. These are the goals that fostered the founding of Construction Owners Association of America.

COAA was founded in 1994 to serve the interests of construction project owners. COAA is comprised of a diverse group of men and women representing construction project owners throughout America. COAA is dedicated to making a significant and lasting impact on the construction industry through its leadership by creating a unified, collective voice for owners' issues in the construction process. www. coaa. org

Healthcare Web Sites Benchmarked in New Internet Study

Healthcare Web Sites Benchmarked in New Internet Study

According to the Internet Standards Assessment Report (ISAR) released by the Web Marketing Association, healthcare sites are strongest in content, copywriting, and ease of use, but lag in use of technology and innovation.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 29, 2006

According to the Internet Standards Assessment Report (ISAR) released by the Web Marketing Association, healthcare sites are strongest in content, copywriting, and ease of use, but lag in use of technology and innovation. The ISAR study provides industry benchmarks for Web site development and is based on data collected from nearly 10,000 Web site evaluations in more than 80 industries over the past decade. A copy of the full report can be downloaded at http://www. webaward. org/isar_report. asp (http://www. webaward. org/isar_report. asp).

Healthcare Web sites generally met or performed just below the overall three-year averages for the individual judging criteria with the exception of content and copywriting in which they slightly outperformed.

“Medical healthcare is one of the most competitive industries within the WebAwards, and the scoring average for organizations in the healthcare industry has mirrored the overall ISAR Index since 2000,” said William Rice, president of the Web Marketing Association. “Healthcare organizations have used the Web as a way to open the door to patients, better informing them about the care they and their loved ones are receiving. By offering their services online, healthcare providers and insurers can provide a greater benefit at a lower cost to its online consumers.”

Since 1997, the Web Marketing Association has been conducting its annual WebAward Competition for Web site development. The Internet Standards Assessment Report is the result of nearly a decade of independent evaluations of Web site development based on seven categories: design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting and ease of use. The medical industry is represented in the WebAwards with several categories, including medical, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals.

Only medical Web sites were above average for 2005 compared to the ISAR Index, receiving an overall average score of 53.2 (out of a possible 70 points) verses 52.2 for the Index. Pharmaceutical and healthcare Web sites both received an average score of 51.6 while biotechnology was the lowest in the group with an average score of 48.7.

Previous “Best of Industry” WebAward winners in health care-related categories include:

Best Health Care Web site

2005 DLC Solutions & Siteworx for Cochlear Website

2004 Roche Diagnostics for Diabetes Assistant

2003 Columbus Children’s Hospital for Columbus Children’s Hospital Web site

Best Medical Web site

2005 Mojo Interactive for LocateADoc. com

2004 Roche Diagnostics for ACCU-CHEK Web Site

2003 ASCO for ASCO. org

Best Pharmaceutical Website

2005 SimStar for BotoxCosmetic. com

2004 MagiClick Digital Solutions for Abdi Ibrahim Pharma Healthcare Portal Morning After Pill

2003 Insight Interactive Group for CrohnsResource. com Website

A complete list of past winners can be found at http://healthcare. webaward. org (http://healthcare. webaward. org)

Healthcare organizations wishing to have their Web sites evaluated against the ISAR Index and be considered for a WebAward -- a way to boost a Web site’s credibility and marketing efforts -- can nominate their site at http://www. (http://www.

“Of course, as in every industry, there are healthcare Web sites that stand out and others that don’t make the grade,” concluded Rice. “Our goal has always been to be more than just a popularity or beauty contest that rewards brand names and good design. Instead, this ISAR study is designed to return some value to every entrant with input as to what Internet professionals should strive for in their Web site development efforts in an objective, empirical and constructive way.”

About the WebAwards

The 10th annual international WebAwards competition sets the standard of excellence in 96 industry categories by evaluating Web sites and defining benchmarks based on the seven essential criteria of successful Web site development. The goal of the Web Marketing Association, sponsor of the WebAwards, is to provide a forum to recognize the people and organizations responsible for developing some of the most effective Web sites on the Internet today. Entrants benefit from a Web site assessment by a professional judging panel and the marketing opportunities presented to an award-winning Web site. For more information, visit www.

Research Shows Business Women Support Hillary Clinton For President

Research Shows Business Women Support Hillary Clinton For President

Recently-compiled research reveals that women entrepreneurs want Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States.

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) May 5, 2008

CNN, MSNBC and others have long reported that Hillary Clinton boasts an arsenal of white female supporters who are fueling her continued success in primaries around the nation. However, according to a recent report by the National Association of Business Women and Moms (NABWM), among those fervent females vying for her nomination are business women of all ethnicities.

The research also reveals that women in the upper echelon of business are pulling out their checkbooks to garner more funds for the Clinton campaign.

Women account for 40 percent of Clinton's "bundlers"--the top fund-raises who pull in donations from others. Oxygen's former chief executive, Ms. Laybourne, hosted a cocktail party in her Manhattan apartment for women in media, including Diane Robina, president of emerging networks for Comcast Corp. and Sara Levinson, a publishing-unit heard at Rodale Inc.

"There's a sisterhood solidarity going on here," says Ms. Caputo, who served as press secretary for Clinton when she was First Lady.

Clinton's financial transparency is also lending her credibility and building trust among female voters. According to the article "How Voters May React to the Clintons' $109 Million Income," American voters don't begrudge wealthy candidates their money because many aspire to wealth themselves.

"The Clintons' have now made public 30 years of tax returns, a record matched by few people in public service, said Clinton campaign spokesman Jay Carson in a statement. "None of Hillary Clinton's presidential opponents have revealed anything close to this amount of personal financial information."

Clinton also scored endorsements from high-profile women's political organizations, including Emily's List and the National Organization for Women, which laud her efforts to champion for women's rights. The National Organization of Women (NOW) endorsed Clinton for her demonstrated commitment to protecting women's right to choose. Clinton has expanded access to family planning services and spoke out forcefully against the Supreme Court's April 2007 decision that failed to recognize the importance of women's health. According to NOW's website, Clinton has "eloquently articulated the need for full economic, political and social equality for workers to advance the civil and human rights of women and girls".

Gender is not the only reason many of America's women are actively endorsing the female candidate. Clinton's policy positions on labor, education, healthcare and work-life balance are driving business women to support her campaign. Today, despite the progress women have made toward equality, they earn 77 cents for every dollar men earn, with women of color earning even less.

Clinton has long been a champion for equal pay for women. The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, of which Senator Clinton is an original cosponsor, would reestablish a fair rule for filing claims of pay discrimination based on race, national origin, gender, religion, age or disability.

"We thought we had ended discrimination in the workplace against women when the Equal Pay Act was passed all those years ago," said Clinton. "But clearly, we have not finished the business of guaranteeing equality in the workplace: fair and equal pay for those who do the same jobs."

Clinton also introduced the Paycheck Fairness Act, which would take critical steps to empower women to negotiate for equal pay, to create strong incentive for employers to obey the Equal Pay Act and to strengthen federal enforcement efforts.

Clinton's plan for preparing America's youth for jobs of tomorrow includes more science, education and innovation that she says "must begin before kindergarten and extend through college, and a lifetime retraining." According to the organization Business Women for Hillary, this is important "for one of our biggest challenges in business--hiring qualified employees."

Clinton's plans for affordable and accessible healthcare are also attracting businesswomen, especially small business owners. While small businesses are an engine of job growth, they face many challenges when it comes to providing healthcare for their employees. Clinton's proposal would give tax credits to small businesses that provide healthcare to their workers to help defray their coverage costs.

Many women still assume the responsibility of primary caretaker for their children and elderly parents. For these working women juggling many responsibilities, Clinton's plans to help families achieve a better work-life balance are especially appealing. She also plans to extend the Family Medical Leave Act, which enables new parents to take time off without loosing their jobs.

"With sound policies and sensible investments, we can give parents more choices to make the decisions that are best for them," Clinton said. "We can make life a little easier for everyone-for mothers and fathers-to do the most important job there is in any society: raising and nurturing the next generation."

Clinton also promotes telecommuting by encouraging its use at federal agencies and planning to invest up to $50 million annually in local and state initiatives. Telecommuting provides flexibility for employees and allows employers to reduce increasing office space demands.

If Clinton clinches the Democratic nomination in August, women--especially women in business-- will be largely to thank.

The National Association of Business Women and Moms (NABWM) is an online initiative to help business women become successful. Their organization provides extensive research about business women and professional women in the workplace, and a free directory of home business ideas.

Terminal concessions have posted positive numbers as well. Year-to-date airport food/beverage/gift revenue was up 10.1 percent at COS with $665,730 in revenue, as compared to $604,608 in 2001. Parking revenue was up 1.8 percent in 2002 with $5.7 million in revenue reported over $5.6 million in 2001. Rental car revenue for the airport was also up 7.1 percent from $3.8 million in 2002 compared to $3.3 million in 2001.

A significant highlight in 2002 was when two major bond-rating firms, Moody's Investors Service and Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, raised the bond rating for the airport to "A-3" and "A-," respectively. This upgrade was based on improved financial condition, strong liquidity, healthy financial margins and prudent development policies. Fitch Ratings added to the good news with a first-time rating of A - for the airport.

"It's been a good year in many areas," Green said. "These consistently positive numbers are a reflection of the hard work of our staff and steadfast support from the community."

Colorado Springs Airport handles approximately 114 arrivals and departures per day and is served by 9 commercial airlines. The Airport is situated on 7,135-acres and operates three runways - dual parallel and one crosswind - and boasts the longest runway in Colorado: 13,500 feet (2.5 miles).

Thoughts To Live By

Thoughts To Live By

Ultimately, all of us on this Earth ask the same questions: Who are we? Why are we here? How shall we live our lives? And how are we to be guided in our quest?

(PRWEB) January 19, 2005

Thoughts to live by. 

Ultimately, all of us on this Earth ask the same questions: Who are we? Why are we here? How shall we live our lives? And how are we to be guided in our quest? 

Keith W. Meyers does not presume to have all of the answers. He does, however, ask the right questions and, in his new work, Clearing Up The Waters -- A Principle Approach to Systematic Theology, he gets to the heart of what it can mean to be a caring, thinking, believing human. 

Meyer, who has just completed eight years as a pastor within the Zion Mennonite Fellowship, looks at theology and belief through thoughtful, searching eyes. He encourages his readers to challenge themselves, to question their own beliefs, all with a view toward helping themselves become more complete and with a greater understanding of the principles that can guide a healthy, believing life.

As Meyers himself observes, "As I wrestled with concepts and principles, I could not rest until I thought I had got to the heart of the matter. Once I arrived at this place, there was a sense of completion, or peace, or rightness.''

Clearing Up The Waters is a book for those who like to think about their spirituality and their God. It is a book for those who question the principles that govern their lives, and who aren't afraid to challenge accepted thinking. In an ideal world, in a world in which we yearn to be fully human, to be closer to our God, that would be all of us.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 19, 2008

SmartNow today announced the winner of their first promotion, an all expense paid trip to NYC for a beauty makeover, is Margie Raynor from Florida. Margie's sister, Judi, entered Margie, a single working mother, into the contest.

The Top 20 semi-finalists of the "Back to You Makeover" garnered over 250,000 votes. All of the Top 20 received a prize and Margie was the grand prize winner. She and her sister, Judi, were treated to a round trip airfare plus hotel in New York City on September 9th and 10th. Margie spent her first evening in NYC with Bridgette Raes, style expert, shopping for a new wardrobe at Macy's.

Wednesday morning, Margie and her sister, Judi, paid a visit to Dr. Lenora Felderman, a leading NYC dermatologist practicing at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center and Lenox Hill Hospital, where she was treated to skin rejuvenation. Next stop was the Cocoon Salon, where Matthew Shields, who had flown in from Beverly Hills, was waiting for her. Matthew is an accomplished hair stylist at Sally Hershberger whose clients have included Jane Fonda and Meg Ryan. Matthew used Phyto Volume on Margie's hair to give it thickness without stickiness and then Sally Hershberger's Style Primer and Supreme Head Shagg Spray to add style.

After Matthew rushed off to the airport, Raychel Wade, makeup expert and owner of Cheek to Chic in NYC, arrived to give Margie an expert makeup lesson. Raychel used Strobe Cream, which gives the skin a great glow and comes through the foundation. Next she applied Select Moisture cover under her eyes and around her nose to eliminate any dark circles and redness, and touched up the rest of her face with Face and Body foundation and a tiny bit of Blot Powder. All of the MAC products used to create Margie's new look can be found on SmartNow.

Margie and Judi ended the day with a fashion show back at their hotel with Bridgette explaining her style choices. Margie emailed the team at SmartNow after she returned home. She was exuberant with her new look. Margie's story can be found on the SmartNow. com home page.

The Fantasy Delight is Wickedly Delightful

The Fantasy Delight is Wickedly Delightful

TheFantasyDelight. com is the internet's newest resource for all things sensual between couples. With affordable prices and a wide selection, the site is appealing to all - no matter your barometer of kink. Site founder Toby Button started the site in fall 2008 and has recently created a coordinating blog.

Rhinelander, WI (PRWEB) November 8, 2008

For some, purchasing sensual and intimate items becomes a bigger deal than it should be. Sexy doesn't necessarily mean smut and Toby Button is making sure of this through her website www. TheFantasyDelight. com.

"I wanted to have a site that was tastefully done and I wanted it to appeal to everybody," said Button matter-of-factly. "Some people like to go for the shock factor by having nude men and women; shocking people isn't necessary."

The brand new website launched in the fall of 2008 and it already has a respectable cache of products with only more to come:

"If people ask questions or make requests, I can get an idea of what they're looking for," explained Button. "Right now my stock is set, but the more I learn about what people want, the more the website will evolve."

Button's catalog is an all-encompassing one and features several different intimate items such as dildos, vibrators, lingerie for women and men, lubrication, and assorted other marital aides.

Even with all the items on her shop and her friendly demeanor, Button doesn't take the issue of sex totally lightly, as she addresses responsibility on her blog, www. Sensual-LubeAndVibratorsBlog. com.

"I want to be responsible and playful," said Button. "You're making a decision that can affect your health. If I'm going to be selling these products, I have to be wise about it. There's not enough education there that isn't scrutinized and I don't run my business half-heartedly."

Still, with all her wise suggestions, Button is still able to do reviews and other useful information that addresses the playful side of relationships.

While some people may have hang ups about shopping for products of the intimate nature, Toby Button has made it easy and discreet and refuses to judge people based on their purchases. With a heart and an attitude like that, TheFantasyDelight. com should be the first stop for the needs of sexual adults.

About the Company:
TheFantasyDelight. com is a part of Button Enterprises, which is owned and operated by Toby Button. As the website specializes in marital aides, all sales are final and additional return policies can be found on the company's return policy page.

Codding Construction Returns to Mall Construction with Whole Foods

Codding Construction Returns to Mall Construction with Whole Foods

Codding Construction starts major renovation for Coddingtown Mall in Santa Rosa, CA with 50,000 square foot Whole Foods grocery store.

Rohnert Park, CA (PRWEB) September 22, 2008

Codding Construction, an experienced and quality general contractor since the 1940's, is proud to be constructing the start of a major renovation for Coddingtown Mall.

Construction on the shell of the exciting and new 50,000 square - foot Whole Foods grocery store is currently underway. The former Ralph's grocery store has been demolished and the new 7 million dollar, one-story building, is being constructed to provide a brand new Whole Foods' to serve the discerning shoppers of Sonoma County with fine healthy food and wine. The Coddingtown store is expected to offer a greater selection of gourmet prepared foods than most Whole Foods markets.

The store framing features locally manufactured, recycled steel panels supplied by Codding Steel Frame Solutions of Rohnert Park, CA. The panels are manufactured at the only One Planet Community in North America, Sonoma Mountain Village, in a zero waste, 100% solar powered factory.

John Gordon, President of Codding Construction, commented, "When our company built Coddingtown in 1960, it was one of the first enclosed malls on the West Coast. It is most satisfying to join with Simon Property Group to be part of the renovation program for Coddingtown Mall."

Codding Construction, who have completed over $450m of construction contracts, is part of Codding Enterprises, an industry leader in deeply sustainable and environmentally responsible building practices.

Codding Construction expects the shell to be completed by November 2008, with Whole Foods opening in May of 2009.

SIDE BY SIDE by Clinical Psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy, Strengthens the Mother-Daughter Relationship With a Revolutionary Approach to Conflict-Free Communication

SIDE BY SIDE by Clinical Psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy, Strengthens the Mother-Daughter Relationship With a Revolutionary Approach to Conflict-Free Communication

SIDE BY SIDE introduces the Four Truths of every mother-daughter relationship and a revolutionary communication approach called the Chair Strategy. This mom-driven program is designed to harness her power to resolve even the most volatile situations with love, understanding and respect.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 28, 2010

The relationship between a mother and daughter is unique: extremely powerful and emotionally charged. Despite wanting the best for their daughters, many mothers find themselves trapped in a cycle of fighting and negative communication. In his new book SIDE BY SIDE: The Revolutionary Mother-Daughter Program for Conflict-Free Communication (http://browseinside. harpercollins. com/index. aspx? isbn13=9780061791574) (HarperOne, February 2010, Hardcover, $25.99), Dr. Charles Sophy introduces a ground-breaking plan for moms to develop a strong and rewarding relationship with their daughters for years to come.

As a clinical psychiatrist, Dr. Charles Sophy has treated youths of all walks of life: from infamous young celebrities in Beverly Hills to foster children in the Los Angeles County child welfare system. Now, with his first book, he presents a concrete strategy for improving the most tension-fraught, precarious family dynamic of all: communication between mothers and daughters. In SIDE BY SIDE, Dr. Sophy begins by identifying three key truths about mothers and daughters:

1. Mothers and daughters want the same things: love, understanding, and respect

2. Mothers and daughters speak the same language. Moms and daughters are always communicating, either verbally or nonverbally, in a conversation that begins in the daughter’s infancy. Mothers must recognize the tremendous impact they have, and strive to communicate in an honest, respectful and loving way.

3. Mothers and daughters, on some level, are in competition with each other. This competition can be subtle or unconscious, but it’s important to recognize.

Next, Dr. Sophy unveils a crucial tool for mothers and daughters: The Chair Strategy, a unique, easy-to-use approach to communication that reduces the emotions of any argument and allows mom to guide any conversation to a place of love and respect. The Chair Strategy is composed of three metaphorical positions:

1. Back-to-Back: In this position, mother and daughter are at odds, with no chance of seeing eye-to-eye or making a real connection. One or both members may be disrespectful, confrontational, or antagonistic.

2. Face-to-Face: When mother and daughter are discussing an issue openly, honestly, and with respect, regardless of whether they agree or not. Face-to-face is the ideal position for working through heated conflicts and serious disagreements, but because of the intensity required, it is difficult to sustain this position for long periods of time.

3. Side-by-Side: When mother and daughter are supportive of each other, but open to disagreement. They are looking in the same direction and from virtually the same place, though they are not necessarily seeing the same view. This is the ideal position for everyday communication.

Each of these three chair positions will inevitably arise—but mothers who are aware of these three positions will be able to take control of the situation and steer towards a better outcome. In addition, Dr. Sophy provides a section on Hot Button Issues, helping mothers approach some of the most challenging areas of parenting: sex, money, values, and divorce.

Being a mom is hard work, but Dr. Sophy steers mom through even the roughest waters. With exercises, guided conversations, journaling and real-world stories, SIDE BY SIDE takes the mother-daughter relationship, regardless of its current state, and leads it toward a new level of understanding, love, and true connection.

“I applaud Dr. Sophy’s efforts to take the heat and pain out of the mother-daughter relationship. His principles are sound and his advice is practical. Side by Side is an innovative and useful book.” — Jane Isay, author of Walking on Eggshells: Navigating the Delicate Relationships between Adult Children and Parent

Dr. Charles Sophy has dedicated himself to the physical and mental well-being of children and families of many different backgrounds. In addition to his private practice, he serves as Medical Director for the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services, the nation’s largest child welfare system. He has appeared on television programs including Today, Good Morning America, Larry King Live, Anderson Cooper 360, and on the Fox News Channel.

New Novel From Two Harbors Press Explores Affect of Death and Grief on Our Sense of Self and Belonging

New Novel From Two Harbors Press Explores Affect of Death and Grief on Our Sense of Self and Belonging

Psychotherapist Marty Livingston’s four decades of clinical experience provides the credibility behind the premise of his new novel Searching, a psychological coming-of-age story that follows a young boy and his journey from a fateful beginning into adulthood.

Minneapolis, MN (Vocus) September 1, 2010

Psychotherapist Marty Livingston’s four decades of clinical experience provides the credibility behind the premise of his new novel Searching, a psychological coming-of-age story that follows a young boy and his journey from a fateful beginning into adulthood.

Dr. Livingston takes you back to a 1940’s and 50’s Brooklyn where Jimmy is surrounded by both the peace and turmoil of the era. The whole world is magical until the three-year old finds his Grandpa Yussel lying dead on the floor. Within months Jimmy’s father also becomes terminally ill, shaking the boy’s faith in the safety of the world around him.

Years later a mother who’s definition of “gentleman” is likely to take the juice out of Jimmy’s life and his other down-to-earth grandfather, Pop, challenge Jimmy as he struggles with self-assertion and sexuality. Each striving for attention, a college-bound Jim takes his mother’s “gentleman” angel and the “demon” Pop sitting on his shoulders.

A beautiful, sexy southern co-ed settles the angel demon problem when a passion ignites that allows him to let loose in other areas of his life. But as the star on the basketball court, with other girls vying for his attention, Jimmy’s relationship begins to unravel until an unconventional exploration of death and dying in a sociology class allow him to make sense of his shattered childhood and put his ghosts to rest.

This psychological coming-of-age story explores the role of death and grief and people’s response to it in their sense of self and belonging.

For more information please call or e-mail Kat Turner or visit the author's website at: martylivingston. com or find him on Facebook.

About the author: Marty Livingston earned his Ph. D. from Columbia University and holds certificates in individual psychotherapy, psychoanalysis and group therapy from the Postgraduate Center for Mental Health. Dr. Livingston is the author of two prior books. Searching is Livingston’s first novel.

Boots Becomes Exclusive Stockist of Celebrity Makeup Artist Cosmetics Brand

Boots Becomes Exclusive Stockist of Celebrity Makeup Artist Cosmetics Brand

Boots. com gain exclusive stockist status for myface. cosmetics the new cosmetics brand from renowned makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.

(PRWEB) October 26, 2008

Charlotte Tilbury is one of the most influential make-up artists in the world, whose client roster includes Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham, Gwen Stefani and Drew Barrymore, to name but a few. She is now allowing every woman "access" to her professional expertise with the launch of the make-up brand myface. cosmetics that syncs a person's make-up with their skin tone.

Boots (http://www. boots. com/ (http://www. boots. com/)) will be stocking myface. comestics exclusively on its website, which is the UK's number one health and beauty online retailer.

Combining the expertise of a high profile make-up artist with high quality products and high-tech packaging, myface. cosmetics has ceremoniously ended mass confusion in the make-up aisles. By merchandising colours and shades according to skintone, both online and in store, myface. cosmetics creates an easy-to-shop user-friendly experience.

Charlotte believes that the vast majority of women are concerned with the make-up colours that most suit them, rather than application techniques, and therefore the range is based on this insight, with each shade picked to work with a specific skin tone - fair, medium and medium/dark.

Charlotte Tilbury said: "The most common question people ask me is 'What colour lip gloss, blush etc. would you use on my face?' The right colours dramatically enhance your overall appearance and the wrong ones can really detract." This refreshingly prescriptive approach to make up (http://www. boots. com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay? catalogId=11051&categoryId=4711&langId=-1&storeId=10052 (http://www. boots. com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay? catalogId=11051&categoryId=4711&langId=-1&storeId=10052)) seems blindingly obvious and yet has never been done before.

The range consists of ten lines, from light ethereal foundations to lip pop gloss and upload mascara for loaded lashes. Each line has shades that are recommended for each of the skin types.

Celeste Sinclair, Beauty Buyer for boots. com said, "We are so excited to have myface cosmetics (http://www. boots. com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay? categoryParentId=3633&langId=-1&storeId=10052&catalogId=11051&categoryId=38342 (http://www. boots. com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CategoryDisplay? categoryParentId=3633&langId=-1&storeId=10052&catalogId=11051&categoryId=38342)) as an exclusive brand on our site. Charlotte has earned iconic status in the fashion & beauty world and we know that our customers who are self-confessed 'beauty addicts' are absolutely going to love this new brand with such inspirational expertise behind it."

HCG: 3 Things To Know Before Losing Weight Fast

HCG: 3 Things To Know Before Losing Weight Fast

Deirdre Tuntland (PA-C), creator of Releana®, the only patented hCG drop available in the United States, provided answers for the three most important questions dieters need to ask before starting a hCG diet.

Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) August 2, 2010

HCG (http://www. releana. com) is the new diet craze sweeping the nation but before starting any diet plan it is important for consumers to know what they are putting into their bodies and how it may affect them.

Deirdre Tuntland (PA-C), creator of Releana (http://www. releana. com)®, the only patented hCG drop available in the United States, provided answers for the three most important questions dieters need to ask before starting a hCG diet (http://www. releana. com):

Q: Is hCG safe? (http://www. releana. com) Is the hCG diet healthy? (http://www. releana. com)

A: HCG (human chronic gonadotropin) is a safe and naturally occurring hormone. By combining Releana® hCG drops with a very low calorie diet, users shed those hard to lose pounds while retaining lean muscle mass and experience an increase in their metabolism and energy.

“I tell my patients Releana® is medical grade quality, has no side effects, is produced with the most sterile laboratory standards and is distributed by hundreds of medical professionals across the country,” said Tuntland. “It’s completely safe and healthy.”

Q: Will the hCG diet help me lose weight? (http://www. releana. com) Does the hCG diet work (http://www. releana. com)?

A: Clinical studies have demonstrated that patients taking Releana® who follow the prescribed nutrition plan lose 28% more weight than their counterparts on the nutrition plan alone. The average person on the hCG diet plan loses a pound a day –without hunger.

“Every single patient who has used Releana® and followed the diet and plan has lost weight,” said Tuntland, “Not a single person has failed.”

Q: How can I tell which hCG drops are best (http://www. releana. com)?

A: “Ironically, many online hCG providers sell ‘homeopathic’ drops with obscure ingredients and only trace amounts of hCG. Some online providers even use equine (horse) hormone rather than human chorionic gonadotropin,” said Tuntland.

“You should make sure you get the highest quality hCG product and one of the best ways to do that is talk with a medical professional,” she said.

Releana® is the only patented hCG formula in the United States. There is a reason why it is the most prescribed hCG drop by medical professionals - because it works and is the authentic product. Dieters using hCG drops typically restrict their calories to 500 to 800 a day and can lose as much as a pound per day while retaining muscle. Releana® is safe, natural, and effective.

Southface announces that Gables' new rental apartments - 820 West, Sheridan, and Century Center - were recently completed to energy-efficient EarthCraft Multifamily standards, in addition to being ENERGY STAR Qualified, which means each building is at least 15% more energy efficient than a code-built building. All three projects also meet the sustainability standards of EarthCraft Multifamily, which include highly water - efficient fixtures, plus fresh air intakes for each housing unit, thereby contributing to a healthy indoor environment for every resident. Gables Midtown, an EarthCraft Multifamily project currently under construction, is the first ENERGY STAR High Rise Pilot project in the Southeast, and only the fifth such pilot in the United States.

Gables' 820 West, Sheridan, and Century Center communities were recently completed to energy-efficient EarthCraft Multifamily standards, in addition to being ENERGY STAR Qualified, which means each building is at least 15% more energy efficient than a code-built building. All three projects also meet the sustainability standards of EarthCraft Multifamily, which include highly water-efficient fixtures, plus fresh air intakes for each housing unit, thereby contributing to a healthy indoor environment for every resident.

Gables Midtown, an EarthCraft Multifamily project currently under construction, is the first ENERGY STAR High Rise Pilot project in the Southeast, and only the fifth such pilot in the United States.

Said Joe Wilber, Gables' Senior Vice President of Investments for the East, "Southface has been a great partner in helping Gables meet its goal to be a sustainable and environmentally responsible apartment developer.

Why Wait for Wrinkles? Beauty Expert Says Late Teens/Early Twenties Perfect Time to Launch Pre-emptive Attack on Aging

Why Wait for Wrinkles? Beauty Expert Says Late Teens/Early Twenties Perfect Time to Launch Pre-emptive Attack on Aging

Early use of non-surgical anti-aging wraps, sprays, and supplements can help women sidestep cellulite, sagging skin, and other dreaded milestones on the road to growing older.

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) February 8, 2006

A nationally known beauty expert says women have a better chance of retaining a youthful appearance throughout their lifetime by launching a pre-emptive anti-aging campaign before the first major visible signs of aging appear.

Victoria Morton, developer of the Suddenly Slender Body Wrap and Suddenly Slender Anti-aging Wrap, says new insights into why physical appearance changes as we get older have led to the development of supplements and non-surgical cosmetic procedures capable of virtually stopping the aging process before it starts. Morton says pre-emptive anti-aging treatments are rapidly becoming popular with her salons' teenage/twenty-something clientele who realize that a proactive approach to beauty will pay big dividends later in life.

"We're noticing that women aren't waiting until the wrinkles show up or their skin starts sagging to purchase anti-aging treatments," says Morton. "Women as young as seventeen are coming to our salons because they've realized the best time to stop the signs of aging is before they hit."

After working more than four decades in the beauty industry and having closely observed the faces and figures of thousands of clients, Morton is very familiar with the changes in physical appearance the typical woman undergoes in her lifetime.

"Our anti-aging treatments address the major appearance milestones encountered by most women as they mature," says Morton. "If a client comes to us early enough, we have a good chance of delaying and softening many of these changes, and in some cases we can prevent them from occurring altogether. 

Here is Morton's summary of the most common age-related appearance changes and the treatments her salons use to counteract them:

"CELLULITE APPEARS mid-to-late teens. Cellulite is the first visible sign of aging, most commonly starting on the legs. By 17 most girls have it, but I've seen cellulite on a 13-year-old," says Morton. "Surgery can fend it off, but because cellulite is caused by poor diet and toxins in the body, it will return unless the person makes lifestyle changes." Morton says her liquid mineral body wraps can prevent cellulite or smooth it away it if it's already appeared. .

"The FACE BEGINS TO SAG around age 18. Compare anyone's high school yearbook photo to their college graduation photo and notice how much lower the eyebrows are in the college photo." Morton says Suddenly Slender's non-surgical "Face Taping" procedure will lift drooping brows and facial skin.

"BAGS UNDER THE EYES can begin as early as age 20 from a bad diet." Morton says her "Face Wrap" smoothes these bags, and erases dark circles, too.

"SAGGING BUST LINE begins around 25." Morton says her "It's All You" adult training bra will keep bust tissue high and firm and prevent sagging. "The bra trains sagging breasts back up into position, and they'll stay in place, even after you remove the bra," say Morton.

*. "DRY SKIN AND DRY COMPLEXION often start as early as 25. The minerals contained in the Body Wrap and Face Wrap re-hydrate and re-mineralize the skin, keeping it feeling soft and smooth," says Morton.

"AGE SPOTS on HANDS begin around 30. They can appear as early as 25 and are often mistaken for freckles," says Morton. "Spots are a sign of sloppy cell growth. Diet can be supplemented with RNA/DNA," says Morton. 

"POT BELLIES appear around age 30, or after your first child." Morton says tummies routinely look firmer and flatter after the Suddenly Slender body wrap. 

"JOWLS begin to develop sometime after 30, not because of fat, but because of gravity," says Morton. "Not many realize that a sagging bust line can pull the face and jowls down, too -- it's all one sheet of skin." Morton recommends her non-surgical "Face Wrap" and "It's All You Bra" to address drooping face and jowls.

"HAIR, EYEBROWS, and EYELASHES THIN around mid-30's to 40's. Remove the chemical buildup on your scalp, increase scalp circulation, and nourish the body with RNA/DNA supplements so the hair stays fuller looking," says Morton.

"SAGGING UPPER ARMS appear around 40 but are easily preventable with periodic Suddenly Slender body wraps," says Morton.

*. "PORES ENLARGE and become more obvious around 40." Morton says body wraps and face wraps can clean out and close large pores.

"KNEES GET ROUGH and BULGES APPEAR ON SIDES OF THE THIGHS around 40." Morton says leg appearance is easily addressed with body wraps.

FACIAL WRINKLES start mid-to-late 40's. Small lines around the lips deepen as moisture leaves the skin over time. "Smooth wrinkles non-surgically with hydrating face wraps and face taping," says Morton.

"When we talk about stopping or reversing the signs of aging, we're talking about literally building a younger looking body," says Morton. "We've found a key part of that process is to supplement the diet with RNA and DNA.

In addition to RNA/DNA, Morton uses another powerful anti-aging supplement: A sublingual spray containing a homeopathic version of the Human Growth Factor which she calls HGF, or the Homeopathic Growth Factor. Morton says because the spray is easily absorbed under the tongue, the anti-aging properties of HGF are not diminished by digestive acids in the stomach.

"Our anti-aging regimen routinely peels 10 to 15 years off the appearance of our "baby boomer patrons" in a few short weeks," says Morton. "When a twenty-something woman combines our anti-aging regimen with a healthy diet and regular exercise, we can virtually guarantee she'll keep a vibrant, youthful appearance throughout her entire life."

Brach Eichler Presents ‘Burton L. Eichler Award’ to St. Barnabas Medical Center’s Dr. Ronald Chamberlain

Brach Eichler Presents ‘Burton L. Eichler Award’ to St. Barnabas Medical Center’s Dr. Ronald Chamberlain

First Annual Eichler Award Honors the Legacy of Healthcare Law Pioneer, Recognizes ‘Top Doc’s’ Civic Contributions

Roseland, NJ (PRWEB) November 19, 2010

Brach Eichler L. L.C. has presented the “Burton L. Eichler Award” to Ronald S. Chamberlain, MD, MPA, FACS, chairman and surgeon - in-chief at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, NJ. As a sponsor of “New Jersey’s Top Docs” for 2010, Brach Eichler recognized Chamberlain at New Jersey Monthly’s Top Doctors reception, which was held for all Top Doctors honorees at the Mountain Ridge Country Club on November 17, 2010.

Chamberlain received a plaque and a check in the amount of $1,000 to be donated to a medically related non-for-profit of his choice. Chamberlain designated Beyond the Walls, a not-for-profit dedicated to addressing the education, food, housing, medical care, job training, mentoring and micro-enterprise needs of the poor and disadvantaged, as the prize recipient.

“Burton Eichler was not only one of the most respected members of the New Jersey Bar and widely regarded as a pioneer in the area of healthcare law, he was also a man of enormous integrity, and he gave tirelessly to his community. For example, for more than three decades, Eichler was deeply committed to Cerebral Palsy of North Jersey and, in November 2009, just before his death, he was honored for his extraordinary service at its Steps to Independence Celebration,” explained John D. Fanburg, health care law chair and managing member of Brach Eichler. ‘We wanted to commemorate his legacy of leadership in health care and giving to the community by instituting the Burton L. Eichler Award in his honor.”

Chamberlain, a resident of Mendham, was honored for his active involvement in the following medically-related non-for-profit organizations: *Beyond the Walls, Potter’s House, MILPHAP 19, and the NJ Chapter of the American College of Surgeons. For example, for Beyond the Walls, he is actively involved in the organization’s food and coat drives and other fundraising initiatives. For Potter’s House, Chamberlain provides substantial financial support for a comprehensive health care program which serves the needs of the 10,000 people that live in the garbage dump of Guatemala City, including a health care clinic. In addition, he leads a medical team to Guatemala each summer. Chamberlain recently returned from his annual trip to Vietnam through MILPHAP 19, a charitable organization that leads multidisciplinary health and educational teams to underserved areas of Vietnam, where he volunteers his surgical expertise at regional and local health care centers.

Chamberlain said, “It is difficult for me to say why I enjoy community service. I believe you get one life and that what is important. It is not what you get out of it but rather what you put into it. I have been amazingly blessed with a wonderful family, good health and tremendous opportunities, all of which are gifts and not my doing. Whenever one gets the chance to help another reap similar blessings that is what true living is all about.”

“All of us at Brach Eichler are proud of our longtime association with New Jersey’s Top Doctor’s event and so many of the state’s leading medical practitioners,” noted Fanburg. “New Jersey Monthly was very supportive of our Burton L. Eichler Award Program.”

About Top Docs

This annual list is compiled by physicians about the state’s top physicians.

Abuse and Neglect Among the Elderly

Abuse and Neglect Among the Elderly

Almost one in every three nursing homes in the U. S. has been cited for an abuse or violation. There is an agency in the Lakeland area that is here to make a difference. This agency is called Intellnet Investigative Services, Inc. and they have a division called The Elder Guard Program. These investigators go into the nursing homes upon the families request and do a full investigation up to 6 times a year.

(PRWEB) November 16, 2004

In the world today we have an increasing elderly population. The elderly population is just in its beginning stages, the population is going to continue to grow well into the year 2030. Some of the Elderly enjoy a meaningful and exciting life.

According to the Federal Interagency Forum on Ageing-Related Statistics that in the Year 2000, there were in excess of 35 million people age 65 Years or older. That accounts for over 13 percent of our population. That number is expected to double to over 70 million by the year 2030. In 1997, there were over 250 people per 1000 elderly in nursing homes across the U. S.

According to CNN on July, 30 2001 Almost one in every three nursing homes in the U. S has been cited for an abuse or violation. There was a report prepared for the representative of California, Henry Waxman. This report found that over a two year period, (January 1, 1999 to January 1, 2001), that all violations had at least the potential to harm nursing home residents.

There were over 3,800 abuses that had not been found until an actual complaint was filed.

There are many organizations now that protect the elderly after the abuse has been reported. These agencies are responsible for investigating claims of nursing home abuse and or neglect after the fact. These agencies have the potential to bring strict guidelines for these nursing homes to follow,

There is an agency in the Lakeland area that is here to make a difference. This agency is called Intellnet Investigative Services, Inc. and they have a division called The Elder Guard Program. These investigators go into the nursing homes per the families request and do a full investigation up to 6 times a year. They investigate the welfare, well-being, physical health, hygiene, background of the staff, and nursing facility background. This service will then have a better ability to recognize the warning signs of Elder Abuse and/or Neglect. This kind of attention to detail will not only create a safer environment for our loved one but a happier one too.
