New Website and Self-Help Book Validate Women Experiencing Grief After an Abortion

New Website and Self-Help Book Validate Women Experiencing Grief After an Abortion

MIssing Pieces. Org develops the first self-help plan and Website that takes the fear out of processing grief after an abortion. C. P.R.~ Choice Processing and Resolution is a brand new book that answers women's questions about the sadness they might feel after their voluntary pregnancy termination or abortion. Women caught off guard about the grief they feel after an abortion choice can go to http://www. sadafterabortion. com for reassurance and some free resources.

Buena Vista, CO (PRWEB) June 1, 2010

Professional Therapist Trudy M. Johnson, L. M.F. T., (http://sadafterabortion. com/index. php? p=1_4_About) who helps women with grief after an abortion decision, says it is time to give women who've chosen to voluntarily terminate a pregnancy a venue to grieve and process their loss.

Women who've made abortion choices over the last decades make up one of the largest demographic in our nation. According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, a statistical gathering arm of Planned Parenthood over one million choice decisions per year have been made since 1973.

Johnson believes women do not talk about an abortion in their past (http://www. missingpieces. org/pdfs/Is%20it%20OK%20to%20talk%20about%20my%20abortion. pdf), "This is because they don't want to risk rejection, receive condemnation, or be misunderstood about the natural sadness]that can occur after a voluntary pregnancy termination. Women experience something called disenfranchised grief. There are no open venues for talking about, crying about, or expressing any emotion over the feeling of loss that can often blindside a woman after a decision to terminate a pregnancy," says therapist Trudy Johnson, founder of Missing Pieces. Org (http://www. missingpieces. org) a woman's issues counseling organization.

Johnson recently developed a Web site for women searching on the internet looking for resources after an abortion choice. Going to http://www. sadafterabortion. com (http://sadafterabortion. com) women can at least know that it is normal to feel sad after an abortion. "Many women are caught off guard, thinking they will only feel relief," Trudy Johnson believes. " Visiting many online chatrooms I found cries for help addressing this issue. Women are looking for answers and have no where to turn. This is not a political issue. This is a woman's heart issue."

Johnson continues with this to say about grief after abortion, "Finding the courage to look for help processing grief after abortion can be challenging. It is ironic that women can walk into the front door of a clinic to get an abortion, but their choices are few when it comes to grieving the loss. After the choice, the clear cultural message is 'don't talk and don't cry about your abortion.'"

Johnson shared in a recent interview about her own experience with abortion loss. "Several years after my abortion in college, I felt the need to understand the deep sadness (http://www. missingpieces. org/pdf/Secret%20heart%20ache. pdf) that was invading my daily thoughts. I didn't know what was going on inside. I only knew I needed to talk to someone. I parked my car a few blocks down the street from my appointment. I walked up the alley and knocked on the back door of the building. I remember wondering why there wasn't a doorbell there for those of us needing to discreetly go inside."

"Now think about this concept," she states with passion. "I just described going to a support group for abortion grief. I entered through a back-alley door for fear of being seen by anyone I knew. We've taken back door entrances out of the choice process. It is time to take back door entrances out of the grieving process!"

Dr. Christiane Northrup, M. D., F. A.C. O.G., recently acknowledged the importance of grieving an abortion decision. Dr. Northrup is author of one of the nation's leading books on women's health titled, Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom (http://www. drnorthrup. com/). Dr. Northrup notes, "As a former abortion provider, I've long known about the need for grieving voluntary pregnancy termination ('vpt')."

Johnson created a free version of C. P.R. called "C. P.R. Light" that can be downloaded and printed (http://sadafterabortion. com/index. php? p=1_2_Free-Resources) and made into a small booklet for giving someone that needs help processing abortion grief. She also makes available on her Web site a convenient self-test to see how unprocessed grief after abortion can affect one's daily life.

Ms. Johnson plans on being the catalyst for women coming out of the closet concerning an abortion in their past.

She hopes this self-help plan for processing grief after abortion without fear will be a valuable resource for millions of women to reach closure for the haunting sadness they may feel buried deep inside following an abortion decision.

Coca-Cola and Walmart Executives to Keynote at U Connect Conference

Coca-Cola and Walmart Executives to Keynote at U Connect Conference

Manufacturer and retailer will address importance of standards to the supply chain in the new economy

Lawrenceville, N. J. (Vocus) February 17, 2010

J. Alexander (Sandy) Douglas Jr., president of Coca-Cola North America (KO), and Rollin Ford, executive vice president and chief information officer for Walmart (WMT), will deliver keynote addresses at the 10th annual U Connect Conference® on June 8, 2010, host organizations GS1 US and VICS announced today.

“U Connect attendees will find these keynotes extremely valuable,” said Bob Carpenter, president and chief executive officer, GS1 US. “It’s a rare opportunity to get insights on how the world’s largest beverages producer and largest retailer are using standards to become more efficient and effective as they navigate the ‘new normal’ economy. Both companies are heavy users of supply-chain standards as well as thought leaders in this area, so small businesses and large businesses alike will get a lot out of this program.”

The conference takes place June 7-10, in San Antonio, Texas.

Douglas, who is also chairman of the GS1 US Board of Governors, will discuss how Coca-Cola North America is leveraging standards to support collaborative integrated supply chain strategies that create a more efficient and effective supply chain and reduce disruptions.

“Standards are a key enabler to industry-wide supply chain solutions,” Douglas said. “GS1 standards allow us to build capabilities which can be used by all of our retail partners across multiple industries.”

Douglas has been with Coca-Cola since 1988, and has held a variety of positions, including senior vice president and chief customer officer of The Coca-Cola Company.

Ford, who has been CIO of Walmart since 2006 and has previously headed logistics and supply-chain operations for the company, will speak about the value of GS1 standards in the retailer’s efforts to optimize its value-chain processes and sustainability.

“Walmart is leveraging industry standards to level the playing field for our suppliers globally, and to increase our process efficiency, which helps us take out costs and deliver everyday low prices to our customers, so they can save money and live better,” said Ford. “This includes our work with data synchronization-based item-file alignment, which gives us one version of truth about product data, enabling item data accuracy, store-level inventory management, and global replenishment. And standards help us address emerging issues around food and product safety, sustainability, and visibility into our global supply chain.”

The conference theme, “Build a Visible, Secure and Sustainable Value Chain,” refers to the ability of GS1 standards to help companies better understand where their products and assets are, how to protect them, and how to ensure ongoing high performance of business processes.

More than a thousand business professionals from industries including Apparel, Fresh Foods, Foodservice, Healthcare, Retail/CPG, and Hardlines will converge at U Connect to learn how to use new and existing standards to address emerging and expanding issues, such as food and product safety, recalls, traceability, sustainability, and brand integrity.

U Connect is hosted annually by GS1 US and the Voluntary Interindustry Commerce Solutions Association (VICS), working with a planning committee that includes representatives from several major retailers and suppliers.
Early-bird discounts end on March 31. For more information and a list of exhibitors: http://www. uconnectevent. org

Oreganum Health Launches Body-Benefits, a New Range of Pure Organic Vegetable Oils High in Essential Omega Fatty Acids

Oreganum Health Launches Body-Benefits, a New Range of Pure Organic Vegetable Oils High in Essential Omega Fatty Acids

As society becomes increasingly conscious about its dietary food intake, traditional sources of Omega 3 oils such as fish become less attractive because of plummeting fish stocks and pollution in their environment. The Body-Benefits Pure Organic Vegetable Oils offer an attractive alternative.

(PRWEB) January 7, 2006

As society becomes increasingly conscious about its dietary food intake, traditional sources of Omega 3 oils such as fish become less attractive because of plummeting fish stocks and pollution in their environment. The Body-Benefits Pure Organic Vegetable Oils offer an attractive alternative. The oils, which include Hemp Oil, have been developed as a rich source of Omega 3 & 6 Essential Fatty Acids, they are free from nuts and sesame seeds and suitable for vegetarians, vegans and those who do not wish to take fish oils or capsules. Currently all oils are sourced from within the UK and are fully traceable within the soil association and registered with the Vegan Society.

There are four types of oil in the current range: Omega Blend, Evening Primrose, Flax Seed and Hemp Seed oils. Omega blend is an organic blend of natural seed oils, which provide essential fatty acids often reduced or lacking in modern diets. The blend of oils provides a balance of Omega's 3, 6 & 9 (2:1:1 ratio), ideal for maintaining healthy skin, hair, nails, bright eyes and a strong immune system. Evening Primrose oil is a pure, organically grown source of both linoleic and gamma linolenic acids (GLA); both are Omega 6 fatty acids vital for maintaining healthy joints skin, inner calm, improving blood circulation and most notably reducing menstrual pains. Organically grown Flax Oil is one of nature's richest sources of the Omega 3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid; essential for providing the metabolites EPA and DHA. The final member of the current range is the naturally invigorating Hemp Oil, which helps to maintain healthy skin, hair, nails, bright eyes, a strong immune system and a healthy heart.

The oils are expressed from seed stocks via a process of cold pressing and then filled in darkened glass bottles to maintain their preservation. Unlike most modern cooking oils and other oil supplements, these oils are unprocessed meaning they keep all of their original nutritional goodness. The oils are intended to supplement the diet or replace current dietary intakes of oil such as those used in salad dressings, they can be consumed directly, added to fruit juices, “smoothies” or cereals or as imagination allows. Both Hemp Seed Oil and Evening Primrose Oils are also suitable for use in massage. The oils will soon be registered with both the vegetarian and vegan societies.

Products are available from the Body Benefits website www. body-benefits. co. uk or by calling the company 0845 838 2232.

Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) April 7, 2010

MessageSolution, Inc., the global technology leader in live archiving (http://www. messagesolution. com) for email, file systems (http://www. messagesolution. com/File%20Archive. htm), SharePoint, on-premise and Software as a Service (SaaS) in electronic discovery (http://www. messagesolution. com), litigation support, compliance, storage management, and email server migrations, announced the kick off of the MessageSolution SaaS Tour 2010 at the SaaSCon 2010 Expo, exhibiting its first in the market, all-in-one, integrated cloud-based enterprise information archiving (EIA) solution for email, file systems and SharePoint.

As the leading innovator in the live archiving space, MessageSolution (http://www. messagesolution. com) is the first SaaS and on-premise archiving solution provider in the market to archive and stub for all top-ranked email server platforms, including Exchange, Domino, GroupWise, file systems and SharePoint, delivering compliance archiving for all Unix/Linux-based email servers, and file servers for NTFS/NFS/NSS/Netware. MessageSolution Enterprise Migration System helps organizations to migrate between email servers, such as GroupWise or Domino to Exchange bi-directional, and SharePoint or BPOS migration (http://www. messagesolution. com/Migration_with_MS. htm) from multiple source systems. MessageSolution is first in the market to perform simultaneous mail server migration, archiving and stubbing all in one streamlined process, to meet clients' requirements of email server migration and archiving for compliance, server storage management, e-discovery and litigation support.

"MessageSolution SaaS tour is to showcase our unified SaaS archiving (http://www. messagesolution. com/SaaS_Cloud_Archiving_title. htm) solution for email, file systems, and SharePoint. Partners, SME and enterprise customers choose MessageSolution SaaS archiving services and solutions because of the additional functions we have integrated that were only being offered in on-premise solutions, function such as stub attachments or email contents to reduce up to 90% of email server storage requirement (http://www. messagesolution. com/File%20Archive. htm) and still allows users to transparently access emails and attchments from Outlook, OWA, Lotus Notes, DWA, and GroupWise client software." said Jeff Liang, CTO at MessageSolution, Inc.
MessageSolution's SaaS Tour 2010 is designed to introduce to various prospective SaaS partners and customers how MessageSolution's cloud-based archiving allows enterprise customers to take advantage of MessageSolution's newly released all-in-one SaaS archiving solutions at affordable rates. Even the international organizations with multiple locations in different countries still are able to take advantage of MessageSolution's SaaS Global Network's cloud-driven archives in numerous geographical locations, managed by MessageSolution or its international SaaS Partners around the world.

Leading analyst Gartner reported in February of 2010 that the archiving market has evolved to include a broader focus on enterprise information archiving (EIA) and that today's products are predominately focused on the subset of EIA comprised of unstructured user files, email, files and SharePoint.

"MessageSolution leads the SaaS archiving market and was the first to offer unified archiving services of all platforms of EIA, email, files, and SharePoint." Liang continued. "This is for organizations that choose to quickly start affordable archiving without too much hardware investment upfront, and as their business grows they have the option to move archiving in-house with our on-premise solution or continue with our SaaS archiving services".

MessageSolution SaaS multi-tenancy archiving solution is selected by OEM SaaS Partners (http://www. messagesolution. com/Hosting_Firms. htm) around the world because of MessageSolution's design philosophy of architecting for scale and its patent-pending storage and database technology, leveraging low-cost storage grids to maintain the lowest-cost growth possible to operate while still delivering exceptional performance. Today MessageSolution holds the industry scalability record of archiving data from tens of thousands of users on one single archive server, 5-8 times over competitors. MessageSolution also delivered the first 64 bit application in the market to support 64 bit machines.

Field-proven in markets filled with low-grade computers and storage bricks, such as Africa and Asia, and through cost-effective global implementations performed online, MessageSolution's design philosophy allows MessageSolution cloud-based archiving systems to consume minimum hardware and storage resources for large-scale millions of user bases and long-term archiving operations at a fraction of the cost required to run competitors' SaaS or hosted services. This allows MessageSolution to offer the lowest cost SaaS multi-tenancy solution to be deployed in global partners' data centers to maximize partners' service profitability at the lowest cost-growth ratio, thereby fully utilizing partners' expertise in providing fully managed archiving services designed for organizations of all sizes. The cloud-based archiving services managed by MessageSolution are also cost-effective.

MessageSolution's multi-tenancy solution is also a favorite choice of organizations such as public school districts or government entities with multiple subordinate divisions. School districts' dozens of schools require multiple separate archive tenants divided accordingly, while the central archive is collectively managed by the school district's master IT administration team at the district's data center.

MessageSolution's SaaS, Hybrid and On - Premise archiving supports all major email servers, including Microsoft Exchange Server, IBM Lotus Domino Server, Novell Groupwise Server Scalix, Kerio, Postfix, Postpath, Zimbra, Imail, Qmail, Sendmail, MDaemon and Sun server, etc., as well as delivering archiving for SharePoint, and for file systems on NST/NFS/NSS/Netware. MessageSolution Enterprise Archive Suite can be run on both Windows or Linux OS, supports VMware, and also is the first archiving solution and service in the market to simultaneously cross-support archiving for all compatible mail servers.

MessageSolution will be exhibiting among selected business partners in the heart of Silicon Valley at the SaaSCon Expo in Santa Clara, at booth #113 from April 6-7, 2010. The MessageSolution SaaS Tour 2010 will continue throughout the U. S., making stops at numerous archiving, storage and Cloud computing events, such as Interop 2010, HostingCon 2010, etc.

Global Air Conditioning Systems Market to Reach 78.8 Million Units by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc

Global Air Conditioning Systems Market to Reach 78.8 Million Units by 2015, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

GIA announces the release of a comprehensive global report on Air Conditioning Systems Market. Tempered by the recent economic recession, which forced a considerable decline in its growth over the last few years, the global market for air conditioning systems is expected recover poise and reach 78.8 million units in volume sales by 2015. Growth in the short to medium term period will be driven by factors such as focus on energy efficient air conditioners, growing replacement needs and increasing demand from developing markets.

San Jose, California (Vocus) June 15, 2010

While man’s desire to control the indoor environment led to the invention of air conditioning systems, growth in population, sturdy economic progress, industrialization, rising standards of living, affordability of technology and increase in commercial applications have led to its rapid proliferation across the globe. Hitherto a luxury proposition limited to wealthy and prosperous layer of the society, comfort conditioning is fast becoming a necessity in most of the nations. This metamorphosis has opened a completely new world of opportunities for the global air conditioning systems market. Global warming continues to remain a major factor propelling market demand, especially in the residential segment. Depletion of ozone layer, El Nino effect, and global warming, make up for the primary reasons that create the need for air conditioning systems.

Purchase and use of air conditioning systems in both residential and commercial applications often goes hand in hand with the health of economy in a given country or region. For instance, an increase in per capita income pushes up consumer demand for comfort living and eventually drives demand for high value products such as air conditioning systems, while conversely in periods of slowdown, demand recedes rapidly as consumers quickly axe their spending on high-priced products. Illustrative of this trend is the pal of gloom set over worldwide air conditioning systems markets against the backdrop of the recent economic recession. The economic recession and subsequent trends such as job uncertainty, cutbacks in employee salaries, and unemployment, has left many “comfort and luxury” product markets across the globe in a state of turmoil, and the air conditioning market, given the product’s status as a discretionary item, especially in developing countries, is no exception to this trend. However, hope in the form of Government driven focus on energy efficiency injects optimism among air conditioner manufacturers, as it promises to drive demand for energy efficient air conditioning systems such as inverter based air conditioners in the upcoming years.

Another major factor, which is expected to steer the market in the next few years is the rapidly growing replacement need, particularly in mature markets such as the US and Europe. Given the growing focus on energy conservation, the demand for replacing old air conditioning systems with new energy efficient models will be on the rise, thereby adding to market gains. Replacement demand is also generated by the consumers’ need to replace their existing air conditioning systems with quieter and more feature rich air conditioner models.

As stated by the new market research report on the global Air Conditioning Systems market, Asia-Pacific continues to be the largest regional market, having accounted for a share of about 49% in the total volume sales generated for the year 2009. Growth in Asia-Pacific is fuelled by factors such as rise in urban population, cushioned impact of the global recession on regional economies, favorable job market, and resulting high income levels, increased household gains and rising per capita incomes in countries such as China and India. By product, the room air conditioning systems market - has been the largest market segment for air conditioning systems, contributing a share of about 80% in the total volume for the year 2009. Low-cost feature and ease of installation & maintenance adds to the attraction of room air conditioners, driving its increased sales.

Key players in this marketplace include Airwell Group, Carrier Corporation, Daikin Industries, De’Longhi SpA, Electrolux AB, GD Midea Holding Co., Ltd, GE Appliances & Lighting, Goodman Manufacturing Company, L. P., Haier Group, Hisense Group, Hitachi, Lennox Industries Inc., LG Electronics Inc., Mitsubishi Electric, NORDYNE Inc., Panasonic Corporation, Rheem Manufacturing Company, Samsung Electronics Corp., Sanden Corporation, Sharp Corporation, Toshiba Carrier Corporation, Trane Inc., Whirlpool Corporation and York International Corporation among others.

The report titled “Air Conditioning Systems: A Global Strategic Business Report” announced by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., provides a review of noteworthy market trends and growth drivers. The report in addition also enumerates product introductions, recent acquisitions, and other strategic industry activities. The report offers latent demand estimates and projections in volume sales (in ‘000 units) for the global air conditioning systems market by product segments, such as, Room Air Conditioning Systems and Packaged Air Conditioning Systems across geographic markets such as US, Canada, Japan, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa

Author Claims to Have Broken Human Personality Code

Author Claims to Have Broken Human Personality Code

Name and color expert Baron Paul Greycastle proves in his new book "Name Colorology Key to Your Beauty, Personality, Romance and Success" that our names are the single most important factor in shaping our personality.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2004

Author Baron Paul

Greycastle brings forth a enormous amount of evidence in his new book "Name Colorology Key to Your Beauty, Personality, Romance & Success" that proves he truly has made one of the greatest discoveries of all time.

He shows with amazing facts, figures and photographs that our names and the colors that are attuned to our names are the single most determing factor that shape our personalities, talents, careers and color associations of our 7 energy centers spiritual, mental, vocal, physical, control, emotional & sexual.

Among some of the facts, figures and points of interest, he lists and answers in his book and personal interviews are:

Approximately 80% of the most famous and successful people in the following career fields are directly related to their color-coded names. Anthropologists, Archeologists, Architects, Artists, Athletes, Designers, Educators, Health Advocates, Inventors, Lawyers, Models, Musicians, Peacemakers, Scientists, Singers, Writers and many more.

What colors to wear based on your name to create and project the 7 image types: wholesome/youthful - mental/intellectual - vocal/harmonious - compassionate/truthful - power/corporate - emotional/romantic - sexual/glamorous.

What colors to decorate your home or business to stimulate the 7 mood environments based on your name: cheerful/creative - analytical/intellectual - harmony/organization - compassion/kindness - formal/power - relaxed/romantic - sexual/seductive.

What colors to use:

In your work space to increase productivity, reduce stress and increase sales.

Relax your children, increase their intellectual and genius abililties.

What color-coded name to name your baby to vastly increase their chances of being a dancer, doctor, lawyer, singer or any other career.

What colors to wear to stimulate your love one romantically or sexually.

How very important it is to pick a mate based on their name.

What our individual moral spiritual mission for the betterment of humanity is here on earth based on our names.

That Sir Isaac Newton was responsible for alinging the colors to the Diatonic Scale (the musical scale).

Mr. Greycastle actually may have made two of the greatest discoveries of all time. He also theorizes the possibility that we become hormonally addicted to our own endocrine gland hormones depending on which energy centers we operate off of and if his theories are proved correct could possibly lead to a new medical field called "endocrine psychology or endocrine psychiatry".

He also explains how to change negative habits into good habits and much more.

Mr. Greycastle has lectured at many colleges and medical institutions, written one best selling book and is the president of "National Color Day". He has been referred to as the "Color King", "Super Stylist" and the next "Super Guru". He has been featured on many talk shows and recieved rave reviews.

"This man has an amazing talent. The phones were hot!" (Al kline-host of the Kelly and Kline show, X-100 FM, San Francisco, Ca.)

"A wonderful quest-- He seems right on. I am very fascinated by this philosophy. I've got to read this book." (Ricky Rafner, host of the Ricky Rafner Show, KVON, Napa, Ca.)

Mr. Greycastle can be easily reach and can do a name/color reading on any current or past news worthy names related to any topic field.

Medicare to Review New Hospital Accreditation Program

Medicare to Review New Hospital Accreditation Program

TÜV Healthcare Specialists Completes Application for Medicare “Deeming Authority.”

CINCINNATI, Ohio (PRWEB) December 14, 2005 –-

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has begun formal evaluation of the just-completed application by TÜV Healthcare Specialists (TÜVHS) to become the first new accreditation service for U. S. hospitals in 40 years.

If granted full deeming authority in the coming months, TÜVHS will not only accredit hospitals (deem them in compliance with Medicare’s Conditions of Participation) but will introduce the breakthrough management disciplines of ISO 9001 to help reverse declining quality indicators in healthcare.

Each year quality lapses in healthcare delivery exact a staggering financial and human toll. Inefficiency and mistakes cost each American $1,200 to $2,500 every year1; and prescription errors – a preventable lapse in quality control – cause 25,000 deaths annually.2

Responsibility for accrediting hospitals was first conveyed to the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) in 1965. The Joint Commission, a private non-profit organization, today accredits the overwhelming majority of hospitals in the United States.

“Choice and competition are the hallmarks of a free market,” says Rebecca Wise, CEO of TÜVHS. “Can you think of an industry with a more profound impact on our lives than healthcare? Yet there is a much higher chance of you getting the wrong dosage of medicine in a hospital than there is of a manufacturer putting the wrong chip on a circuit board. It’s a failure of the system not the people.”

The escalating burden of meeting regulatory and compliance demands has made it even harder for hospitals to focus on systematic quality improvement.

“Healthcare providers are so inundated with compliance and regulatory obligations that they can’t spare the resources to pursue quality as a separate ‘project.’ Quality management needs to be seamless and self-regulating. That is the advantage of ISO 9001 versus all other quality initiatives,” adds Ms. Wise.

TÜVHS has already begun providing full ISO 9001 implementation to hospitals and medical group practices. Any institution can choose to incorporate the Medicare audit upon approval of TÜVHS’s full deeming authority. In the future, achieving ISO certification will be a precondition of TÜVHS’s Medicare accreditation program.

TÜVHS is a subsidiary of the international quality management and product testing company TÜV America. For more information visit: http://www. tuvhs. com.

Brain Damage Due to Over Medication from Anesthesia Exposed by Newly Launched Non-Profit Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation

Brain Damage Due to Over Medication from Anesthesia Exposed by Newly Launched Non-Profit Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation

Too much anesthesia can result in death or worse - brain damage - reports newly created non-profit organization Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation. As a critical alternative to routine over medication, Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation promotes the use of brain monitors, undercutting Big Pharma's financial gain.

Corona del Mar, CA (PRWEB) May 12, 2009 -

Death isn't always the biggest danger of too much anesthesia (http://www. goldilocksanesthesiafoundation. org/), says Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation. Brain damage (http://www. goldilocksanesthesiafoundation. org/) is also a hazard for patients undergoing surgery when a brain monitor is not used by the anesthesiologist, reveals the recently formed non-profit organization.

There is major and minor surgery, but every anesthesia is major. The patient's brain is at risk every time consciousness is surrendered.

Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation was launched by Barry L. Friedberg, MD, the top international authority in anesthesia for cosmetic surgery, in order to expose the avoidable dangers of too much anesthesia (http://www. goldilocksanesthesiafoundation. org/) and to counter Big Pharma's (http://www. sciencedaily. com/releases/2008/01/080105140107.htm) financial interest in acute over medication.

Big Pharma profits are generated through drug sales. More sales mean more profits," Friedberg explains. "The use of brain activity monitors has been shown to reduce drug usage to a lesser, yet appropriate, amount for good quality anesthesia."

As reported in the April issue of 'Anesthesiology' - the official journal of the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA) - anesthesia over medication kills one person every day.

Friedberg attributes avoidable deaths, variable degrees of temporary mental impairment, and cases of lingering brain damage (http://www. goldilocksanesthesiafoundation. org/) to anesthesiologists continuing to measure the wrong thing; i. e. changes in vital signs, now known to be inaccurate indicators of brain response to anesthesia.

"The brain is the target for anesthesia," says Friedberg, a leading expert in the field of anesthesiology for the past 12 years. "It's critical for the brain to be measured with a brain activity monitor; however, most anesthesiologists are not doing this."

The current generation of brain activity monitors gained FDA approval in 1996 and has enabled anesthesiologists to avoid the practice of routine anesthesia over medication.

Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation maintains that anesthesiologists are discouraged from using brain monitors because the ASA and its sponsored organizations like the Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (http://www. faer. org/sponsors/index. html (http://www. faer. org/sponsors/index. html)]), the Anesthesia Patient Safety Foundation (http://www. apsf. org/sponsors/ (http://www. apsf. org/sponsors/)]), and others receive substantial funding directly from pharmaceutical companies.

"There is an obvious disincentive for the ASA and its sponsored organizations to encourage the use of brain activity monitoring," Friedberg says. "Less drug use would translate to less drug sales and profits along with a diminished capacity to continue to provide the same level of support (i. e. money) from Big Pharma to the ASA and their sponsored organizations."

So, how can a patient know if a brain monitor will be used during surgery? By insisting that their anesthesia provider uses one.

Says Friedberg, "If the answer is 'no,' tell them you will find a hospital or surgicenter that does brain monitoring with anesthesia. Taking a firm stand will get attention and as a result, more facilities will use brain monitoring with anesthesia."

According to the non-profit Foundation, public awareness of the serious risks of anesthesia without brain monitoring is the first step.

"Americans must be their own brain safety advocates by insisting on a brain activity monitor with anesthesia. Otherwise, they will be routinely over medicated. Aging Baby Boomers and Medicare-aged Americans, particularly those with diseases in addition to their surgical problems, are especially sensitive to over medication risks. Those risks include pseudo-Alzheimer's, seizures, delirium, increased inflammatory response, possible cancer recurrence, brain damage, variable degrees of mental impairment, and even death," says Friedberg.

Disclaimer: Dr. Friedberg has no financial involvement with any maker of brain activity monitors.

About Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation:
Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate Americans about the public health risk of anesthesia over medication and the value of brain activity monitors.

'Goldilocks anesthesia' is not 'too much' (or 'too little') but just the right amount. Too much is detrimental to the brain. The only way to get 'the right amount' is by measuring patient's brain responses with a brain monitor.

Goldilocks Anesthesia Foundation supports research demonstrating the negative effects of too much anesthesia.

Work Hard, Play Hard at Zion Ponderosa Resort

Work Hard, Play Hard at Zion Ponderosa Resort

Amidst the breathtaking scenery of Zion National Park, corporate leaders, employee groups, and church and civic organizations are taking advantage of a unique ranch-style resort to meet, conduct business, improve teamwork and communication between employees, and to just let off some steam.

(PRWEB) February 14, 2004

Located on the East Rim of Zion National Park in Southern Utah, the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort spans 8,000 acres and shares much of the same unique geography and variety of wildlife as the park. The resort is “all inclusive”- guests are served meals throughout the day in a large, ranch-style meal hall, and only need to sign up to enjoy a laundry list of activities including ATV tours, horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, paintball, rappelling, swimming and hot tub, tennis, sand volleyball, and much more – all for one price.

And thatÂ’s just the fun stuff. The resort is also fully equipped to handle small and large corporate groups, with everything from new state-of-the-art conference rooms with high-speed satellite Internet access, surround sound and large screen projection TVs, to a knowledgeable staff that includes three graduates with a degree in management for recreational activity that are able to set up customized team-building activities and programs to meet any specific groupÂ’s needs.

Zion, which is an ancient Hebrew word meaning a place of refuge or sanctuary, welcomes approximately 2.5 million visitors per year to its oldest National Park. The park is located at the junction of the Colorado Plateau, Great Basin and Mojave Desert provinces and is famous for its dramatic landscape of sculptured canyons and soaring cliffs.

The Zion Ponderosa Resort shares approximately 10 miles of common fence with the park. In fact, at 6,500 feet above sea level, the view from the resort property provides a spectacular panorama of the world famous Zion Narrows, a collection of slot canyons that converge to form Zion Canyon.

Nestled in this environment, the resort sits in stark contrast to the typical locations for workshops and corporate retreats: the claustrophobic meeting room or large hotel ballroom distinguished only by its four concrete walls. Instead, guests can take advantage of a pristine outdoor setting to enjoy nature, conduct a little business, engage in adventurous team-building exercises, take advantage of the range of activities, or just lounge by the pool. 

The resort is owned and operated by the Neeleman Family. The ranch was originally purchased in 1962 by Ray and Ruth Lewis and has remained in the family since their passing. In 1994, the Neelemans decided to convert approximately 100 acres of the property into the resort. Several members of the family live and work at the resort year round, while others – although involved in key decision making – pursue outside interests. If the name Neeleman sounds familiar, there’s a reason: one of the owners is David Neeleman, CEO and Founder of Jet Blue Airways.

“In the corporate world, there are so many distractions with our cellular phones, pagers and e-mail,” says Neeleman. “If you can go to a place where you can remove all those distractions and clear your brain, decompress and really focus as a group on those issues that will move your company forward, that’s invaluable.”

Whether a meeting of business partners, family members, friends, or church or civic organizations the resort is ideal for corporate meetings for both small groups and large. According to Neeleman, corporate groups from the Los Angeles Times, the Discovery Channel and many other corporations have already visited the resort.

For work, play, or both, corporate retreats are designed to have staff returning to work more productive, committed, and fulfilled.

“The benefit for any corporation – big or small – is the ability to spend some time together in a different atmosphere, engage is some team building or group activities, and break down any barriers and really get everyone communicating,” says Neeleman.

According to Corey Child, General Manager of the resort, the location is conducive to a “high-adventure” team-building concept, in addition to more traditional, low impact, team unity exercises.

For example, corporate guests can build teamwork and develop leadership skills while conquering fears on a climbing wall; discover hidden strengths and weaknesses during a competitive game of volleyball; develop strategies and implement plans of attack in an exciting paintball battle; or simply relax while enjoying the breathtaking scenery.

“People who come here want us to walk them through team building exercises, games or events. Sometimes our corporate guests spend 90% of the day doing team building activities and only meet in the conference room for a couple of hours,” says Child. “Because of the unique location, corporate guests prefer to be outside, enjoying group hikes, mountain biking, horseback riding, ropes courses, rappelling, volleyball games, paint ball competitions or other outdoor activities.”

For those companies that want to conduct business, the resortÂ’s new conference rooms accommodate up to 35 people and can be set up theater style for lectures and presentations, or with tables for education conferences.

Guest accommodations range from luxurious multi-bedroom mountain homes with all the amenities, to cabin suites for families (without phone or television) and “cowboy cabins” designed to sleep six individuals “bunk-style.” Camping is also available for groups that want to really rough it.

All meals are served at the Ranch Lodge, by a professional kitchen staff. The resort employs as its head chef Stephan Clark, a specialist in healthy California cuisine that has worked for prestigious hotel and dining establishments including Embassy Suites, Ramada, Beverly Heritage Hotels, Villages Golf Country Club, Sun Microsystems, and Gordon Biersch.

Once a year, Rodney Ross of Danville Services (www. danserv. com), a Utah company that provides a variety of quality services and programs for people with disabilities, arranges a retreat for approximately 25 program managers and directors to get away from their daily routine for a couple of days. According to Ross, he chose the Zion Ponderosa Resort because of the variety of activities, the facilities, and the all-inclusive price.

“The resort offered so much variety and I wanted to give the staff a lot of variety,” says Ross. “All costs were inclusive, and that appealed to me as well. That way I didn’t have to look and decide what we were going to do and what we weren’t going to do.”

The staff at Danville Services began the corporate retreat with a short opening session in which awards for the year were presented to staff, as well as an orientation and general “welcome.” After that, the staff was free to sign up for any activities they desired. One of the group activities involving the whole staff was a spirited game of paintball in which the resort provided the needed supervision, paintball gun and pellets, and appropriate safety equipment and clothing.

“There were 26 of us, and we decided to play a group game of paintball. It was just our staff and we were nailing each other,” says Ross. “It’s great fun to get a big group like that together for an activity. We had a great time.”

Ross points out the staff went out of their way to accommodate special requests: “The staff and everyone up there were very courteous,” says Ross. “If we needed something, they were very helpful. For instance, they didn’t normally do wagon rides that time of year, but they set that up for us. We also asked them for a more adventurous ATV ride and the guide accommodated us. He took us on a much more fun ride on some rougher roads. We really appreciated it.”

According to Ross, the retreat had the desired effect. “Our team loved the resort because of the variety of activities. When we came back to work, everybody was just refreshed. They all were talking about it. They wanted us to come back again,” adds Ross.

On Line Web Marketing (www. olwm. com), a company specializing in Web site design and promotion, recently took approximately 25 employees and their families to the resort for three days. 

“We mainly wanted to get everybody together in an atmosphere outside of the office,” says Shane Brinkerhoff, co-owner of OnLine Marketing Services. “With that many people there are a lot of different personalities, and finding a place where everyone can have a good time is difficult. The resort had something for every type of personality.”

Although they attended the resort more for play, than for work, they soon found themselves in a situation in which work was required.

“While we were there, we found out that one of our client’s Web Sites was going down,” explains Brinkerhoff. “Since the resort had high-speed access, we were able to access the system remotely and fix the problem. It took a couple of guys 20-30 minutes to finish the work. We were able to get the pages back up and go in and take care of them while still being out away from everything.”

The main benefit of the retreat, for Brinkerhoff, was that it was a positive environment in which the staff could better get to know one another and create strong bonds.

“The retreat allowed our entire staff to get to know each other on a more personal level,” says Brinkerhoff. “We also happened to have seven brand new employees and we were able to get to know them faster. It was a real positive for all our employees. They all had a great time. Being able to do things like this also helps us from a productive standpoint as well, when we return to work.”

Non-corporate groups are also visiting the resort. Aimee Barton, President of the Washington County Diabetic Youth Association has worked with other association members to take a group of diabetic children ranging in age from 12-18 to the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort each of the last two years. The Association puts on fundraisers to sponsor the stay at the resort. Last year, they were able to take 55-60 children. This year, they were able to take approximately 80.

“It’s a retreat for the kids to be around other kids that are living the same life that they are – that are taking shots or on insulin pumps,” says Barton. “The idea is to just go and have a fun weekend and get away from it all.”

“They did everything,” adds Barton. “They did wall climbing, the zip line, paintball, horseback riding, and go carts. Everything was a hit. All you had to do was put your name on a sign up sheet. The resort had something going every hour.”

During the trip, Barton took the opportunity to meet with other members of the association, as well as provide at least one hour of education every day about how each child can better control their diabetes. The Association sponsored the daily lectures and brought in an educator, a dietician, a physician and even a motivational speaker for one of the nights.

Barton was most impressed by the full service aspect of the resort. “The first year we went to the resort, we took a trip down to Zion National Park,” says Barton. “We had intended to go on a hike, but it was raining that day. Instead, they bought us all tickets to the local IMAX Theater. They paid for it. They told us that our activities were covered by them and they truly were.”

Although the resort is an unrelated endeavor, Neeleman sees parallels between the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort and Jet Blue.

“Jet Blue is a customer-focused company. We take good care of our employees and they in turn take really good care of our customers. We try to establish an environment where people that come in contact with Jet Blue feel this is a different kind of company,” says Neeleman. “That’s what we try to do at Zion Ponderosa. I think when you go there and interact with the people that you’ll feel like it’s a special place.”

Corporate groups that want to find out more about the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort are encouraged to call for a free consultation about possible retreat programs. The resort is also offering a special discount for groups that book a retreat and plan their visit prior to April 30, 2004.

Cholesterol Tests Reveal Healthy Cholesterol Levels

Cholesterol Tests Reveal Healthy Cholesterol Levels

Cholesterol tests, healthy cholesterol levels, symptoms of heart disease and low fat diet plans are some of the health related articles just released by ChristiaNet, Inc.

Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 14, 2006

ChristiaNet. com (http://www. christianet. com (http://www. christianet. com)), the world's largest Christian portal with 12 million monthly page loads, has just launched a directory of health related articles that include information about good and bad cholesterol levels. ChristiaNet's president, Bill Cooper, recently stated, "Americans struggle with "bad" cholesterol. We want to inform the public about bad cholesterol and we want people to know that it is important to not only test for bad cholesterol, but to test for healthy cholesterol levels, as well." (http://www. christianet. com/cholesterol/ (http://www. christianet. com/cholesterol/))

Research from ChristiaNet reveals that having healthy cholesterol levels (or good cholesterol in the blood stream) is as important as working to bring bad cholesterol levels down. The American Heart Association states, "About one-third to one-fourth of blood cholesterol is carried by high-density lipoprotein (HDL). HDL cholesterol is known as the "good" cholesterol because a high level of it seems to protect against heart attack. Some experts believe that HDL removes excess cholesterol from plaque in the arteries, thus slowing the buildup." The presence of sufficient HDL can help prevent heart disease.

"It's important to obtain adequate testing. Anyone age 20 or older should have cholesterol tests," said Cooper. "There is testing that can prove sufficient HDL, or healthy cholesterol levels, are present in the body." Any HDL level of less than 40 milligrams per deciliter of blood (mg/dL) should be cause for concern, indicating the need for more cholesterol tests. Low HDL levels are often a results of smoking, obesity or a lack of exercise.

There are home cholesterol tests available on the market that measure high-density lipoprotein, or good cholesterol. "Using a home kit to find healthy cholesterol levels is certainly convenient," explains Cooper. "But, we want people to know that medications and weight can have an affect on the results. It's a good idea to get an initial health evaluation and laboratory tests administered first." The American Heart Association also encourages people over the age of 20 to have total cholesterol (both HDL and LDL levels) and triglyceride levels checked by a reputable lab referred by a doctor. Abnormal cholesterol levels can indicate that the patient is at great risk for coronary disease or heart attack. Cholesterol levels can be affected by sex, age, diet, smoking and heredity.

MedUnite Connects with Medi-Gate to Ease Healthcare Providers' Move from Paper Claims to Real-Time, Electronic Healthcare Transactions

MedUnite Connects with Medi-Gate to Ease Healthcare Providers' Move from Paper Claims to Real-Time, Electronic Healthcare Transactions

Healthcare Providers Can Now Use the Medi-Gate Integrator(tm) to Move Patient Data from Their Existing Computer Systems into the MedUnite Transaction Platform.


Inspired technology service company founded by seven of the nation’s largest health insurers, and Medi-Gate. net, LLC, an integration technology and network service organization for Internet–based healthcare transaction vendors today announced an agreement which will enable healthcare providers to easily move from a paper-based claims system into a system of real-time, electronic transactions.

Typically, a healthcare provider uses a physician practice management information systems (PMS) to maintain patient data and then prints this information to send to payers to verify patient eligibility and benefits verification, submit claims, make referrals and check the status of filed claims. Under the MedUnite and Medi-Gate agreement, patient data will easily move between the PMS and the MedUnite Transaction Platform through the use of the Medi-Gate Integrator(tm), making it simple for healthcare providers to make the switch from paper-based to electronic, real-time transactions.

"Checking patient eligibility, claims status, or obtaining referral approval should be as easy for a doctor as using an ATM machine," said Dave Cox, president and CEO of MedUnite. "We are pleased to be working with Medi-Gate to make real-time, electronic healthcare transactions a reality for healthcare providers."

"Our agreement with MedUnite marks the next stage of our transaction-enabling products and services," indicated David Pfeil, chief operating officer of Medi-Gate. "To date we have been focusing on connectivity between physicians and clinical applications such as delivering data to and from on-line reference labs, disease management programs, and pharmacy information systems. With the addition of MedUnite, we can offer our participating healthcare providers integration with a full suite of MedUnite administrative services and transactions. The combination of on-line clinical and administrative connectivity is a very powerful solution. We see Medi-Gate as the catalyst to engage physicians in the use of on-line services by providing then with a wide variety of third party on-line products and services."

How Healthcare Providers Can Get Started

Healthcare providers can begin the process of integrating their PMS with the MedUnite Transaction Platform by registering for the free download of the Medi-Gate Integrator(tm) from the Medi-Gate. net site. By utilizing the IntegratorÂ’s Internet print component, healthcare providers can check insurance eligibility, submit claims or check claim status on-line by simply running reports they would have normally printed to paper.

The healthcare provider can then enroll at the MedUnite. net site and access additional real-time transactions, including: real-time patient eligibility and benefits verification, real-time claims submissions, real-time specialty care referrals and admissions reviews and real-time claim status reporting. These transactions can be done at no cost to healthcare providers after a nominal registration fee.

In the future, MedUnite and Medi-Gate plan on also working together to ease healthcare providersÂ’ ability to receive payments electronically from payers, using the bi-directional capabilities of the Medi-Gate Integrator.(tm)

Google Top Ranked Professional Business Consultant Sharifah Hardie Proudly Endorses Senator Barack Obama and Kicks Off One Million Dollar Fund Raising Campaign - America, Yes We Can!

Google Top Ranked Professional Business Consultant Sharifah Hardie Proudly Endorses Senator Barack Obama and Kicks Off One Million Dollar Fund Raising Campaign - America, Yes We Can!

Google top ranked Professional Business Consultant Sharifah Hardie proudly endorses Senator Barack Obama and kicks off one million dollar fund raising campaign. America, Yes We Can!

Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) June 11, 2008

Google top ranked Professional Business Consultant Sharifah Hardie proudly endorses Senator Barack Obama and kicks off one million dollar fund raising campaign.

When asked why Ms. Hardie endorsed Senator Barack Obama, Sharifah had this to say, "Barack Obama and I are committed to making a difference in America. We are both asking you to believe in yourself. With rising gas prices, home foreclosures and businesses laying off, others may be tempted to dim their lights but not an American. There's something running through the blood of every American that refuses to say die."

Sharifah goes on to say, "Barack Obama is a man with a plan. In his 'Blueprint for Change' he systematically outlines how he will improve our nation's health care, bring home our troops and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. Barrack Obama's successful presidential campaign will clearly demonstrate the fact, that in America anything is possible.

In America a poor man can become a rich man, a man can become a woman, a woman can marry a woman. God bless America (and every where else).

As Americans, we dream of a President who is honest, personable, intelligent, and wise. We want a leader with courage and integrity who has known the struggles of an everyday American. A lot of people have stopped believing that may even be possible. I haven't stopped believing. I support Barack Obama because he is that leader.

This campaign for the presidency is unparalleled in history. Our need for an honest, fresh-thinking leader could not be more urgent. Americans are hungry for change and Barack Obama will bring that change when he is elected.

America needs a President we can believe in. A President who encourages us to believe in ourselves. Barack Obama is this man. The first message that reaches you upon entering Barack Obama's website is loud and clear. His message. His words. 'I'm asking you to believe. Not just in my ability to bring about real change in Washington. ... I'm asking you to believe in yours.'

Ms. Hardie is asking Americans to believe, not only in Barack Obama, but in our individual ability to decide that we want things to change. That we want a better future for our children. You too can make a difference. The time is now. The choice is yours. Please join Ms. Hardie, http://www. SharifahHardie. com (http://www. SharifahHardie. com), in her fund raising efforts in support of Barack Obama. America, Yes We Can."
