Adaptive Marketing LLC® Suggests Adding Fitness to the Traveling Show

Adaptive Marketing LLC® Suggests Adding Fitness to the Traveling Show

Adaptive Marketing Gives Tips on How to Stay in Shape on the Road.

Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) September 15, 2008

Adaptive Marketing LLC (http://www. adaptivemarketing. com/about_bp. asp)®, an industry leader in membership programs, knows how tough it can be to stay in shape, especially if work requires a lot of travel. After all, business trips call for frequent meetings, company events and little free time. But finding creative and fun ways to burn calories while traveling is a practiced art.

That's why Adaptive Marketing (http://www. adaptivemarketing. com/ap9/at-home-rewards. asp) advises making general fitness part of work travel. Got 15 extra minutes? There's lots of ways to make that time count.

-- Jump for joy. Bringing along a jump rope is a good call for two reasons. First, it takes up very limited packing space, and second, it's the perfect way to get a good sweat going in a very short amount of time. And not only is it lightweight and completely portable, jumping rope for even 15 minutes can burn nearly 200 calories. Just think how great it'll be to enjoy an extra dessert at a company event -- guilt-free.

-- Mix and match. Business trips provide a chance to mix and match -- even flip-flop a work-out. Remember, getting creative is one of the hallmarks of business travel fitness. Switching out an exercise regimen, for example, from outdoor to indoor pursuits (let's say, swapping jogging for swimming laps) is a great way to work around inclement-weather issues. Besides, swimming works a lot of different muscles, and it doesn't put undue pounding on the lower body like jogging can.

-- "Gym rats" are us. Of course, business trips are for work, first and foremost, but many hotels include everything from "fitness kits" for yoga and Pilates to exercise bikes, treadmills and universal gyms. For all the "gym rats" out there, consider booking a hotel that offers some fitness-oriented options.

-- Necessity is the mother of invention. Long before the health craze swept across the U. S. some 30-plus years ago, people had to do without state-of-the-art fitness equipment. In fact, gym memberships were few and far between, and people often had to make up their own workout options, like doing "mountain climbers" (sort of like running in place, but on bended knee; simulate climbing up a mountain, with arms in front, while legs go back and forth). If space isn't available to jump rope (e. g., if the ceiling's too low), then fill the bill with some ol' reliables like push-ups, sit-ups, kneeling back-leg extensions and one-legged lunges.

Having access to useful workplace tips like this is just one aspect of what Adaptive Marketing (http://ap9consumergateway. typepad. com/ap9_weblog/adaptive_marketing_llc/index. html) provides. For all those little things that give businesses a decided edge and keep employees happy in their work, the name to remember is Adaptive Marketing LLC (http://findarticles. com/p/articles/mi_pwwi/is_200804/ai_n25135859)®.

Storytime and Anti-Bullying Presentation at Barnes & Noble

Storytime and Anti-Bullying Presentation at Barnes & Noble

Milton's Dilemma and the Consequences of Bullying scheduled for Barnes & Noble in Wilkes-Barre, PA.

(PRWEB) October 27, 2004

Patricia Gatto & John De Angelis, entertainers and authors of MILTON'S DILEMMA, will present a dramatic reading of their story along with guitar playing and original songs at the Wilkes-Barre, PA Barnes & Noble on Thursday, November 4, 2004 at 6:30pm.

MILTON'S DILEMMA is the tale of a lonely boy's journey to friendship and self-acceptance. When Milton vows to get back at the school bullies, he learns a valuable lesson courtesy of a magical gnome named Duffy McDoogle. This exciting yet thought-provoking tale will not only entertain your children, but also teach them a valuable lesson about the consequences of bullying.

As subtle as it may seem, bullying is a form of violence. Research shows that over 75% of today's youth will be exposed to at least some aspect of bullying before they reach high school. The act of bullying has lasting consequences not only for it's victim, but bystanders as well. At the very least, it damages the learning environment and threatens a child's number one concern at school – personal safety.

Gatto & De Angelis are advocates for children's rights, especially literacy and anti-bullying policies. They believe in fostering self-esteem and confidence in children through creative endeavors. They currently perform at schools, libraries, and community events in an effort to help children identify and cope with the negative and aggressive behavior of bullying. Their goal is to foster awareness and provide children with an understanding of their rights to a safe and healthy learning environment.

Inspired by John's personal childhood experience, this husband and wife writing team share their message with an animated reading from their book, original songs, visual aids, and practical advice. In addition, the program provides a platform for educators to build and enforce anti-bullying policies throughout the year as they encourage children to come forward and report incidents of bullying.

MILTON'S DILEMMA is listed on the US Department of Health and Human Services website, Stop Bullying Now as resource material and their book and presentation have received numerous 5-Star reviews and endorsements.

To find out more, contact Joyful Productions on the web at http://www. joyfulproductions. com (http://www. joyfulproductions. com), or call 570-857-0255.

As More Consumers Look to the Internet for Health Solutions, EnerHealth Botanicals Launches New Website, Introduces EnerFood, Revolutionary Green Energy Drink

As More Consumers Look to the Internet for Health Solutions, EnerHealth Botanicals Launches New Website, Introduces EnerFood, Revolutionary Green Energy Drink

As more consumers look to the Internet for health solutions, EnerHealth Botanicals, a "One Stop Source for Health and Immune System Support" founded by two long time vegetarians as a result of their personal search for alternative health and nutrition products, has launched a new website providing health and immune system support products featuring EnerFood Energy Drink, Coconut Milk Powder and NutriCafé Organic Coffee, the "Healthier Coffee."

Evergreen, CO (PRWEB) January 18, 2007

As more consumers look to the Internet for health solutions, EnerHealth Botanicals, a "One Stop Source for Health and Immune System Support" founded by two long time vegetarians as a result of their personal search for alternative health and nutrition products, has launched a new website

At http://www. enerhealthbotanicals. com (http://www. enerhealthbotanicals. com) providing health and immune system support products featuring three revolutionary products: EnerFood, an all natural green energy drink; Coconut Milk Powder, a healthy alternative to dairy creamers; and NutriCafé, the "Healthier Coffee," a unique blend of herbal extracts to boost immune system and performance response combined with shade grown organic coffee.

According to a recent Harris Poll, 117 million US adults have gone online to look for health or medical information in the past year and more than half of those say they use the Internet often to look for health information and alternative health products. In response to consumer demand, EnerHealth Botanicals has launched a new website featuring health and immune system support products that also offers recipes, testimonials and articles on energy, health and nutrition as well as an email newsletter with health news and tips on how to have a healthy lifestyle.

According to Steve St. Clair, co-owner of EnerHealth Botanicals, both he and his partner Darren Craddock have been vegetarians since they were teenagers and had used virtually every green drink on the market. "We were dissatisfied with the available formulas. Too many products had useless filler ingredients, not to mention that there were very few organic or wild-crafted ingredients. So we decided that it was time for a new super green formula as an alternative to the products on the market and thus EnerFood was born."

EnerFood is a revolutionary green energy drink with powerful nutrition for better health, energy and immune system support. The no caffeine and vegan whole food formula provides greater energy through better nutrition as well as immune system support using twenty organic or wild-crafted ingredients including spirulina, chlorella, non-active saccharomyces cervisiae nutritional yeast, dulse, kelp and many other active herbal ingredients.

EnerFood Energy Drink promotes greater stamina and balanced energy all day long, weight loss, immune system support, improved digestion, detoxification effects and many more health benefits with consistent use. EnerFood can be mixed with non-acidic fruit juices, in fruit smoothies, with rice milk, almond milk, soy milk, milk, milk shakes or water.

In addition to EnerFood, EnerHealth Botanicals has developed other alternative health products including Coconut Milk Powder and NutriCafé, the "Healthier Coffee."

EnerHealth's Coconut Milk Powder is 70% coconut oil and is the perfect alternative to dairy creamers in coffee because coconut oil is burned by the body for energy rather than stored as fat. Coconut Milk Powder provides clean, rich coconut milk fast and easy by simply adding hot water and is ideal for puddings, desserts, rice cakes, exotic dishes such as curries, beverages like the popular Piña Colada and other preparations needing varied concentrations of coconut milk. The anti-microbial properties of coconut oil provide a great immune boost along with better nutrition and improved energy.

NutriCafé is a unique blend of 100% organic coffee infused with a powerful blend of herbal extracts known for enhancing immune response and physical stamina. The EnerHealth proprietary infusion process is a technological breakthrough that infuses organic extracts directly into the whole beans without changing the flavor of the gourmet organic coffee.

Each airtight bag contains 12 ounces of certified organic Arabica whole bean fair trade shade grown coffee and a proprietary blend of organic herbal extracts (100 mg. per ounce of coffee beans) in various combinations of Cordyceps sinensis, Ganoderma lucidum, Coriolus versicolor and Agaricus blazei. These particular extracts have been widely studied and have been found to contain compounds that are extremely efficient in augmenting the immune system. The effects of some of these mushrooms have been known for centuries, most notably in Chinese and Japanese traditional medicine. Cordyceps sinensis and Ganoderma lucidum were well known in the herbal pharmacology of ancient times and were used to combat a multitude of illnesses.

The same great NutriCafé taste and immune support organic coffee is also available in a decaffeinated coffee produced using the Swiss Water process that uses no chemicals in the decaffeinating process.

Besides the products created in the EnerHealth Botanicals own production facilities, EnerHealth also sells other high caliber products that owners Steve St. Clair and Darren Craddock have tried and tested over time and that are produced by people they have met and come to know personally including White Dove, Annae and Berkey Water Systems.

Steve St. Clair comments, "We have developed a business model that is based on inclusion and cooperation instead of competition and exclusion of information. We share our knowledge with all those who ask and will be constantly updating our clients via the website and newsletters. We also support empowering people to make a living while benefiting from our products through generous affiliate program commissions."

Next on the horizon for EnerHealth Botanicals is a healthier organic hot chocolate mix infused with herbal extracts to help maintain a healthy immune system; a Himalayan mined salt product; an anti-flu and cold herbal tincture; and an organic pain relief formula.

EnerHealth Botanicals is a limited liability company based in Colorado. The website can be found at http://www. enerhealthbotanicals. com (http://www. enerhealthbotanicals. com).

Pittsburgh Based Associates in Ophthalmology Announces New Treatments for Patients Suffering from Macular Degeneration

Pittsburgh Based Associates in Ophthalmology Announces New Treatments for Patients Suffering from Macular Degeneration

Associates in Ophthalmology (AIO), an eye research institute that has been working with Pennsylvania eye doctors to promote eye health for over 100 years, is very proud to announce new treatments for patients suffering from macular degeneration. Through their Pittsburgh eye care facility and center for surgery, they have found that a new drug called Lucentis may help some macular degeneration patients maintain or improve their vision.

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 30, 2007

Associates in Ophthalmology (AIO), an eye research institute that has been working with Pennsylvania eye doctors (http://www. aioeyesurgeons. com/services/index. htm) to promote eye health for over 100 years, is very proud to announce new treatments for patients suffering from macular degeneration. Through their Pittsburgh eye care (http://www. aioeyesurgeons. com/) facility and center for surgery, they have found that a new drug called Lucentis may help some macular degeneration patients maintain or improve their vision.

Age-related macular degeneration (http://www. aioeyesurgeons. com/services/macular_degeneration. htm), or AMD, is an eye condition that begins when the central portion of the retina, called the macula, begins to deteriorate. It is the leading cause of vision loss and blindness in Americans 65 and older and in 2004 it was estimated that 1.75 million Americans suffer from AMD with that number expected to grow to 3 million by 2020.

There are two forms of AMD and each damages vision in a particular way. These two forms are:
Dry Macular Degeneration - In dry AMD, a yellowish material begins to form beneath the retina which gradually blurs vision by breaking down the light sensitive cells in the macula. Dry AMD is responsible for approximately 90% of the cases of AMD but only 10% of AMD-related blindness. Wet Macular Degeneration - In wet AMD, abnormal blood vessels grow beneath the retina and then bleed which causes central vision to be distorted or destroyed. Although wet AMD only occurs in 10% of AMD cases, it is responsible for 90% of AMD-related blindness.

Lucentis (ranibizumab) is a prescription medication that studies have shown can be effective for patients with wet Macular Degeneration. The researchers at AIO have found that Lucentis can maintain or improve vision in patients with wet Macular Degeneration and they are very pleased to make this treatment available to their patients. Although they caution that Lucentis may not be effective for everyone, their ongoing research suggests that Lucentis, coupled with other therapies, may be able to save the eyesight of many wet Macular Degeneration patients. Anyone located in the Pittsburgh area that might be interested in Lucentis therapy for Macular Degeneration or Pittsburgh Lasik (http://www. aioeyesurgeons. com/services/lasik_surgery. htm) treatment is encouraged to call 1-800-246-1000 or visit www. aioeyesurgeons. com for more information.

Freedom Celebration - Gibson Guitar to Provide Instruments for the Wounded

Freedom Celebration - Gibson Guitar to Provide Instruments for the Wounded

Soldiers' Angels and Gibson Guitar will present over twenty new acoustic guitars to wounded guitar-playing service members as part of a "Freedom Celebration" at the Brooke Army Medical Center on July 5th in San Antonio, TX.

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) June 27, 2008

In cooperation with Soldiers' Angels, Gibson Guitar will present over twenty new acoustic guitars to wounded guitar-playing service members as part of a "Freedom Celebration" at the Brooke Army Medical Center on July 5th in San Antonio, TX. In addition, Angels & Airwaves and the Van Warped Tour will pitch in to create a party that will live on in memories of wounded service members and their families as they recover.

A picnic for approximately 1200 wounded soldiers and their families held in the Fisher Houses "Quad" area and hosted by Soldiers' Angels, will form the core of the Freedom Celebration. The band Angels and Airwaves will showcase their acoustic abilities, and there will be a variety of activities especially for children.

In addition, transportation will be provided at 3 p. m. for Freedom Celebration's guests to attend the Vans Warped Tour at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in San Antonio, the longest-running traveling music festival in the nation. Guests will watch the show free of charge from a viewing area near the stage built exclusively for them, compliments of Kevin Lyman, C. E.O. and founder of the Vans Warped Tour.

Freedom Celebration's highlight will be the awarding of a minimum of twenty Epiphone acoustic guitars to wounded service members, and a single guitar will be presented to each of the seven local Fisher Houses at Brooke.

The husband of Soldiers' Angels founder Patty Patton-Bader, Jeff Bader, is proud to be participating in Freedom Celebration and points out the therapeutic value of Gibson's gift. "I am honored to be involved in the whole event," says Bader, "but since I am also a guitar player, this new program and the gifts to our service members are something very special to me. Music truly has a healing power, and guitar-playing soldiers who have suffered from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) have improved their memory capabilities by remembering the songs they used to play."

Soldiers' Angels is a volunteer-led 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing aid and comfort to the men and women of U. S. military and their families. Comprised of 200,000 volunteer members in over twenty different teams and programs, their activities include letters, care packages, and comfort items to the deployed, and support for their families at home. They also provide assistance to the wounded, continuing support for veterans, remembrances and comfort for families of the fallen, and immediate response to unique difficulties.

Ferndale, WA (Vocus) February 4, 2009

Friday, February 6th, local dentists will give over 350 children a new smile! The opportunity comes at a perfect time for many families. It's the seventh year for Smile Kentucky!, a community partnership that addresses the most common unmet health need in the nation, tooth decay. This year, many of the participating schools saw a sharp increase in the number of families accepting the free treatment.

The children receiving care come from 29 schools in Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Spencer and Trimble Counties. Their dental needs were discovered during free screenings at school. Many of the children have never visited a dentist; others have problems that have gone untreated. Smile Kentucky! will provide over $130,000 of dental services.

Smile Kentucky! is truly a community effort. Over 100 licensed dentists and hygienists provide the treatment. The University of Louisville School of Dentistry donates the use of its school and staff. Other community groups offer funding and support. For example, Colgate provides toothbrushes, Louisville Water Company coordinates educational activities, the Louisville Dental Society recruits volunteers, and Sullivan-Schein Dental provides treatment supplies.

February 6 is a national treatment day coordinated by the American Dental Association. Louisville's program is unique because of the scope and educational component. The American Dental Association calls Smile Kentucky! a model for community partnerships. Since 2003 Smile Kentucky! has provided treatment to over 1,700 children, free dental screenings to over 29,000 children and education programs to 90,000 students.

Practical Homework Suggestions

"TheBeehive. org is a central place to get all kinds of tips on how to improve education, " said Lianne Saunders, a regular user of website. The information contained in this site is well-organized, easy to use, and fun, so it is a big help for my two children, both in middle school. One of the great suggestions on the site that I've already used was to create a scrapbook of their projects and accomplishments. I really appreciate the ways I can help my children learn by involving myself in their learning, and by providing the best possible environment for them to do their homework."

Super Plague Coming, Intuitive Warns

Super Plague Coming, Intuitive Warns

Says a massively deadly disease that weakens cell linings and flusters T-cells is about to be unleashed by conspiratorial international elite. Carrots said to be effective preemptive deterrent.

(PRWEB) January 3, 2004

by Sterling D. Allan

Ephraim, UT (PRWEB) January 2 2004--An intuitive with demonstrated credibility has issued a warning that conspiratorial elements in the shadow government of the U. S. and other nations are about to unleash a massive plague in their efforts to drastically reduce the population of the earth down to what they consider to be a more "manageable" level.

According to the intuitive, who wishes to remain unnamed, the attack will take the form of a genetically engineered super bug that attacks the membranes of cells, causing them to lose their ability to maintain a proper pH balancing, thus leading to death. It also subverts the T-cell immunity of the body, causing it to go into an auto-destruct mode. The body's hyper reaction is what is deadly.

Seventeen prominent scientists have died in the past year under suspicious circumstances. The intuitive said they were investigating various facets in relation to the technology involved in this coming plague.

The bug is neither a virus nor a bacteria, but a prion, like in Mad Cow disease. The intuitive said it is called a "demiscel," and that the recent Mad Cow outbreak was from earlier tests being done.

The demiscel is passed by direct contact, ingestion, as well as airborne, making its spread versatile and rapid.

When the demiscel is unleashed, it will result in a deadly plague of proportions not seen in recent memory, analogous to the influenza epidemic of the early 1900s that killed some 70 million people worldwide.

The intuitive said at first people might confuse it with other syndromes such as SARS. The first symptoms are flue-like.

According to the intuitive, the elitists who are behind this scheme to unleash this apocalyptic plague have an immunization that they have disbursed to those who they deem fit to survive this plague.

The intuitive said that chemtrails have been used to weaken people's immune systems so that when they are exposed to this demiscel they will succumb. Chemtrails are created from nozzles installed on jet liners that emit chemicals while in flight. In 2001, in house resolution HR 2977 IH, Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio listed "chemtrails" as an "exotic weapons system" that should be eliminated.

The intuitive also said that the emaciation of nutrients in the food chain has also been done with the design of weakening people' immune systems and ability to survive this pending attack.

The intuitive said that carrots contain a combination of substances that naturally block the propagation of this demiscel, but that they need to be in a person's system before exposure, not after, when it will tend to be too late. A carrot a day is adequate to bolster a person's immune function to enable them to survive the demiscel. "They will get sick, but it will not be lethal."

Carrots are rich in antioxidants Beta Carotene and Glutathione, and vitamins A, B1, B2, C, and E, which are also considered antioxidants, which help fight free radicals. Glutathione helps the body recycle vitamin E, as well as replenish white blood cells. It also helps to strengthen cell membranes as well as T-cells.

The effect of the carrots is cumulative, so the longer a person has been eating them regularly, the better off they will be when exposed to this demiscel.

The intuitive said the conspirators would disburse the demiscel by breaking vials of the substance on floors in the airports of large cities, and other human thoroughfares such as subways and bus stations, to speed the spread of the disease. Chicago, Salt Lake City, Spokane, Dallas and New York were among the cities seen where this would be disbursed.

Just prior to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attack on America, this intuitive saw the Lord and wondered why he was so sad. He said he could not say. Then after the attack, the intuitive asked the Lord if that is why he had been so sad, and he confirmed this to be the case.

Recently, the intuitive again saw him with a similar demeanor, and she asked if something awful is about to happen again, and he said it was. The intuitive asked permission to go through the veil and visit with the Lord about this. Permission was granted, and she was educated about what is about to transpire.

She was told that she should propagate this information, especially about the carrots.

She said that infected cells resemble Swiss cheese. The demiscel infection itself is not what kills a person, but that the body's response to the infection is lethal. The body releases a watery, gelatinous, pink substance that is acidic in nature, and eats the body alive.

She said that if a healthy person has the right amino acids in their body, their body won't over compensate.

The demiscels attack the T-cells and the lymph system first. The demiscel resembles a potato with the filamentous ears protruding. She said the demiscel is able to adapt and mimic a cell's biology and gain entrance as if it was non-foreign.

She said the demiscel would mutate and that the protrusions would be barbed, increasing their ability to attack a cell.

If the intuitive is correct, one has to wonder what such conspirators would stand to gain by eliminating the weak from society. Those who are stronger are harder to control, not easier.



Congressman Dennis Kucinich of Ohio mentioned Chemtrails as an exotic weapons system in HR 2977 IH: "Space Preservation Act of 2001"

Control Winter Pet Dander with earthbath’s New Waterless Grooming Foam for Dogs

Control Winter Pet Dander with earthbath’s New Waterless Grooming Foam for Dogs

Cold Weather Means Dogs Spend More Time Indoors Increasing Owners Exposure to Allergens Like Pet Dander. earthbath’s Totally Natural Grooming Foam for Dogs Helps Control Dander While Leaving Dogs With Shiny, Supple Coats.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 26, 2010

Everyone wants to be inside when winter’s chilly winds blow, and Fido is no exception. With doors and windows closed and the heater on everyone is comfy and cozy until some family members start to feel that familiar tickle in their noses. These closed environments, combined with longer intervals between pet baths, can mean a higher exposure to pet dander for those sensitive noses. earthbath’s Grooming Foam for Dogs (http://www. earthbath. com/dogs/dog-foam. php) is the simple, natural way to control dander and leave dogs looking and smelling great.

To give a dog’s coat a clean shine, simply pump out a few hands full of earthbath Totally Natural Grooming Foam, rub it on and towel it off. No water needed! Once the coat has fully dried it can be brushed to a show quality luster. Not only do dogs look better, the foam will also help alleviate human allergy problems by removing dander from the coat.

“Everyone wants to bring their pets inside when it’s cold,” says Paul Armstrong, CEO and founder of earthbath. “But this close proximity and closed environment means those who are sensitive will need to do something to control dander. This grooming foam is the perfect way to do that, especially when it’s too cold for a regular bath.”

Like all earthbath products, Totally Natural Grooming Foam for Dogs is designed for the well being of both dogs and the environment. Its ingredients are all natural, paraben free, phosphate free, biodegradable and pH-balanced for the sensitive skin of dogs. Shea butter, colloidal oatmeal, meadow foam seed oil and aloe vera are used to condition both coats and skin leaving dogs with a healthy shine and incredibly soft coat.

Earthbath Totally Natural Grooming Foam for Dogs is available in two different varieties. Green Tea Leaf contains green teal leaf extract that is well known for its anti-oxidant properties and a fragrance everyone loves. Hypoallergenic is fragrance free for dogs with sensitive skin or allergies. All are safe for dogs and puppies over 6 weeks old.

For more information about earthbath Totally Natural Grooming Foam for Dog or any of its other all natural pet grooming products please visit the website at www. earthbath. com (http://www. earthbath. com/index. php).

The Ultimate Workout Plan for Busy Dads -- Dad Fitness Launches in Time for Fathers Day

The Ultimate Workout Plan for Busy Dads -- Dad Fitness Launches in Time for Fathers Day

Overweight dads everywhere are finally losing that beer belly with just 3 short workouts a week. Busy dads are using the innovative exercise methods in Dad Fitness to cut back on their workout time, boost their metabolism, and help them lose inches and fit back into their old clothes.

Labrador City, NL (PRWEB) June 9, 2008

Dad Fitness releases the ultimate workout plan for busy dads.

As more dads find themselves crunched for time between family and work, they are also noticing their increasing waistline. Finally a solution has been found to provide busy dads with an effective exercise system to burn off that excess belly fat with just 3 workouts a week. Until now, spending hours in the gym to build muscle and doing long boring cardio workouts to burn fat have been the only option for men looking to lose those excess pounds and get in shape. While these methods do provide some results, for busy dads, spending hours slaving in the gym is just not an option.

Sean Barker, a certified personal trainer, and more importantly a brand new dad, created the Dad Fitness system. With little time to workout like he once did Sean wanted to give busy dads everywhere an easy way to lose unwanted bodyfat, build lean muscle and eat healthy great tasting foods. It worked wonders for him, and has worked wonders for other dads looking to lose that belly blubber once and for all. With the Dad Fitness unique workout plan, no longer do they need to spend hours everyday working out to see results. The Dad Fitness workouts were specifically designed to build muscle and burn excess bodyfat in the same workout. Giving you fast results and more time to spend with your family and friends.

The facts on fat are deadly. Experts agree being overweight causes heart disease. The more overweight you are, the greater your risk of an early death. Heart attacks are the No. 1 cause of death for American men.

As more and more busy dads realize they are cheating themselves out of years of healthy living that they owe to themselves and to their families, Dad Fitness will become an essential tool to lose those pounds and gain back their life.

For additional information on Dad Fitness (or to get the book), contact Sean Barker or visit www. dadfitness. com. Dad Fitness will be running a special Fathers Day Celebration Giveaway from June 10th-12th.

Grupo Gallegos, an independently owned, full-service communications agency, today announced its Association of National Advertisers (ANA) Multicultural Excellence Award win in the “Campaign with Significant Results” category for the company’s work on the Energizer® e2® Lithium product campaign, Música que Sigue y Sigue.

Each visit length averaged over six minutes User-generated views of artists' videos posted on YouTube exceeded 600,000 (through 7/08) The Energizer songs and videos have been played over 500,000 times on MySpace pages (through 7/08) "When Grupo Gallegos posed the question to us, what happens when you combine the power of the Energizer Bunny® with anything, we knew the possibilities were endless," said Betsy Laakko, director of marketing for Energizer.

The Lending Group Sees Cooling Economy Driving Homeowners To Refinance Mortgages

The Lending Group Sees Cooling Economy Driving Homeowners To Refinance Mortgages

As homeowners look to solve money needs, borrowing becomes a choice for many, but The Lending Group says it's a mine field out there and consumers should be sure the residential lending agent is on their side.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) August 7, 2007

People have heard the horror stories when it comes to borrowing to pay the bills. It usually starts with someone desperate to refinance a home loan to payoff credit cards or other debts with a lower real estate loan payment. Problem is, that new loan may not be any better…in fact, it could be worse according to experts at The Lending Group in Irvine, Calfornia.

Shavyl Hassim, President/CEO of The Lending Group should know. In his 20+ years as a residential lending Consultant and Financial Advisor he has seen it all. "The worst case is when a loan officer will change the terms at the eleventh hour, when the consumer is desperate to get the money," says Hassim. "That can cost dearly."

It starts when people decide to borrow against their home. The smart way to look at borrowing is as an investment, not as a money machine that allows you to spend more. "In the end, borrowers who want to spend will loose their loan value," add Hassim, "but borrowing to make an investment will make the loan worthwhile." Investments include such things as improving the value of your home through upgrades, or investing in your education, or a new business.

What baffles experts such as Hassim is the fact that so many borrowers can be casual about who loans them the money. "While consumers often carefully look over financial advisors for investments that can be a relatively small amount of money, they can often trust a total stranger when it comes to borrowing on the biggest investment they have…their home." His solution: "Look for loan officers trained by qualified financial advisors". Making the wrong refinance choice is the biggest investment mistake most people make.

Robert Bolo, a Financial Advisor and founder of the Equity Think Tank is even more direct, "home equity offers the lowest interest rate in the market, provided you invest it wisely. If you make a mistake, it can be an expensive one."

"Often all the consumer wants is a lower rate," adds Hassim, "but they do not see things that play out in the long run. It's a little like getting medical advice from a pharmacist, he may be able to give you a pill that helps today, but a doctor can come up with a plan that gets you back to health permanently."

Those so-called "low interest loans" can eat you up with extra fees and penalties. And if it is an interest only loan, the principle will never go away.

Spotting a residential lending professional who has your interest in mind is tough, but there are some warning signs. Is he acting like a pushy salesman or is he taking time to get to know you and more importantly your needs? Loans come in almost infinite variety these days, so make sure he offers you some options. In that way you will have the final say on what is best for you

Remember, you are boss. Don't be afraid to walk away from a situation that is not going your way.

What is the best kind of mortgage loan? Look for a 5 to 10 year with a fixed interest rate. Your payment will stay steady no matter what happens to the economy and in time the loan will be paid off.

LHWH President Andy Lesnik Is Spotlighted On FOX TV's "Carolina People"

LHWH President Andy Lesnik Is Spotlighted On FOX TV's "Carolina People"

LHWH Advertising and Public Relations president Andy Lesnik was the featured guest on the July 4 edition of "Carolina People" which airs weekdays on WFXB FOX-TV in Myrtle Beach, S. C.

Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) July 17, 2008

The program spotlighted Lesnik's speech on "cultivating gratitude" which he presented when he was honored with the Silver Medal Award for lifetime achievement for excellence in advertising by the American Advertising Federation-Coastal Carolinas. The program can be viewed online at http://www. carolinapeople. com (http://www. carolinapeople. com).

Lesnik's message of "cultivating gratitude" focuses on learning to recognize one's feelings and redirecting one's thoughts toward appreciation and recognition of the positives in one's life.

Show host Greg Everett said he chose Lesnik for the Independence Day segment because Lesnik's personal philosophy is a good fit for a day when the nation pauses to reflect on the quality of life and freedom afforded its citizens.

"A lot of times in affluent societies like we live in, the material side of things gets out of balance and we can't remember what's really important," says Lesnik. "Just to live in America with the freedom we have and the opportunities we have compared to so many places in the world is a lot to be grateful for."

The 25-minute interview also included a discussion of Sheriar Press and LHWH Advertising and Public Relations, two of Lesnik's business ventures. During the discussion, Lesnik noted that LHWH's top clients have been with the agency an average of 15 years which is extremely rare in the advertising business. He also unveiled Sheriar Press' new digital printing service, iDigit@Sheriar.
