Personal Trainer in St John’s Wood Offers Fat Loss Programs to Kick Start 2011

Personal Trainer in St John’s Wood Offers Fat Loss Programs to Kick Start 2011

The Fat Loss Programs at Energie Personal Fitness empowers clients and encourages them to become accountable to themselves and the trainer for maximum results.

London (PRWEB) January 6, 2011

Fat loss expert and owner of Energie Personal Fitness, Imran Ilahi, wants the local residents to kick start 2011 with his most successful body transformation programs.

“We all know how hard it is to get in shape after the holiday season on your own. However with my specifically designed fat loss Programs you get the support and motivation to help you achieve your goals,” says St John’s Wood Personal Trainer, Imran.

The Fat Loss Programs at Energie Personal Fitness empowers clients and encourages them to become accountable to themselves and the trainer for maximum results.

The Programs focus on both fitness and nutrition and is designed to maximise inch and weight loss via personal training sessions and comprehensive nutritional advice.

Each client undertaking the Program is given a very personal service and the team at Energie St John’s Wood take the time to understand their needs and challenges, why they want to enrol into the Program and what their goals are. At the start of the Program a full fitness review is given with follow up assessments throughout, before and after photos are taken and food diaries are monitored each session. Each Personal Training session that forms the programme then includes resistance, cardio and flexibility training with balance and core work and physical assessments - all the tools required to achieve successful results.

As shown from our clients the results achieved on the Programs can change lives:

"I joined Energie in St John's Wood when I moved back to London after spending three years in New York. The New York lifestyle had taken its toll on my body and I wanted to lose some weight and tone up before my wedding in August. In just 2 months of training with Imran and the rest of the team, I shed over 16 pounds. Through a combination of intense cardio training and strength exercises, I was able to reach my weight goals, while maintaining muscle mass and generally feeling healthier and having more energy. The team keep the work-outs interesting and challenging, which helps keep me motivated to achieve my goals. I think personal fitness is hugely important to leading a healthy, fulfilling life and if you can enjoy yourself while keeping fit, well that's even better." -- Chris Arnold Lawyer

"Joining Energie personal fitness in St Johns Wood was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I've never been a big fan of going to gyms but Imran and his team have changed my whole outlook on training and personal fitness.

The programme they have developed for me suits my requirements exactly. It fits in around my work and travel commitments, sets realistic goals that I can aim for and achieve and has real variety to keep me interested. My first target was to lose that extra 1/2 stone that I was carrying around, I smashed that goal within the first month.

The real difference though is the personal approach that you get from the team at Energie. You are not just a membership number, the interest that the team shows in you as well as the advice and tips on fitness and lifestyle really adds value. It really is a great place to get yourself fit, I actually enjoy going." -- Jim souter, LMA

If you have to have the vision, Imran and the team at Energie Personal Fitness will give you the mission! Watch your body change forever in 2011.

Wireless Heart Rate Monitor Receives Go-To-Market Contract

Wireless Heart Rate Monitor Receives Go-To-Market Contract

AFrame Digital has received an importance contract from the Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology to help fund research of its non-intrusive wireless health monitoring system. The system has beneficial applications for the treatment of Veterans and addresses DoD homeland defense needs.

Reston, Virginia (PRWEB) March 19, 2010

The Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology (CCAT) has awarded Reston, Virginia-based AFrame Digital, Inc. a contract to support commercialization of a novel, non-intrusive wireless heart rate sensor developed by AFrame Digital scientists.

CCAT, an organization funded by the US Navy helps innovative emerging technology companies such as AFrame Digital transition their products into military and commercial markets. CCAT's goal is to "fast track" enabling technologies addressing priority DoD and homeland defense needs from the research laboratory to the military, 1st Responder, and the commercial marketplace.

AFrame's patent-pending sensor will allow 24/7 real-time monitoring and alerting of an individual's heart rate without any action required of the wearer. The sensor weighs a fraction of an ounce and can be packaged as either a fashion accessory or integrated with occupational safety accessories. The sensor's design as a functional wristwatch removes the medical stigma for the user. The CCAT contract supports integration of the heart rate sensor into AFrame's wireless MobileCare MonitorTM system.

"Remote long-term health monitoring of patients with chronic illnesses, and for people in high risk occupations such as warfighters and first responders, is an important goal of applying advanced technology to improve health care. AFrame Digital is a leader in creating these innovative technologies," said Dr. Timothy Gerrity, Director OTTC.

"CCAT's support for integration of our heart rate sensor into a commercial wearable monitor will set a new standard of acceptance for individuals in long-term care or risky military and occupational situations", said Bruce Wilson, Chief Operating Officer of AFrame Digital, Inc.

AFrame Digital, Inc. http://www. aframedigital. com (http://www. aframedigital. com), a Virginia small business, was founded in 2005 to research, design and manufacture non-intrusive wireless sensor-based monitoring and situational awareness solutions for long-term care and occupational safety. AFrame has received support from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the National Institutes of Health, and is working closely with two large military treatment facilities, Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) and Walter Reed Army Medical Center (WRAMC) to develop models of injury and disease recovery for the bioinformatics analysis software portion of the system. The company's MobileCare MonitorTM system received FDA clearance in 2009 for in-patient, outpatient, and home care settings.

The Center for Commercialization of Advanced Technology (CCAT) is a program of the Office of Technology Transfer and Commercialization (OTTC) at California State University, San Bernardino. With funding from the US Navy, CCAT helps innovative emerging technology companies transition their products into military and commercial markets. CCAT provides business and technical support in the form of market research studies, business plan development, technology matchmaking, and product development. Since 2002 OTTC, through the CCAT program, has helped over 50 technology companies build their products and businesses.

Motorola University Selects mPortal to Enable Six Sigma on Mobile Devices

The Six Sigma Methodolgy created by Motoroa University enables companies to improve processes and reduce inefficiencies in production. Motorola University and mPortal are taking it one step further by enabling decision makers to have real-time metrics anytime, anywhere.

(PRWEB) March 28, 2002

VIENNA, VA (MARCH 25, 2002) ¾ mPortal Inc., the premier provider of mobile software solutions has been selected by Motorola University to define and develop prototype mobile extensions to their well-known Six Sigma® products. Motorola University is the premier Corporate University, delivering business improvement solutions within Motorola as well as for Motorola customers and suppliers.

In 1986 Motorola created Six Sigma® to maximize business process efficiencies and increase competitive advantage and market share. Six Sigma® provides quality measures that can be used throughout the corporation from manufacturing to support functions. Currently multiple Fortune 500 companies are utilizing Six Sigma® to improve operations and quality management. The mobile components will allow Six Sigma® users to monitor projects and metrics from any mobile device such as Palm and Pocket PC based devices and Java phones. “The addition of mobile capabilities to Six Sigma® improves the managers ability to track quality metrics and react faster and more efficiently by putting the information in their hands at any time wherever they are,“ said Tom McCarty, VP of Consulting Services at Motorola University.

This project will take advantage of some key features now available on a variety of mobile devices, such as the Pocket PCs and the Java phones. These features include the ability to work both on and off line, the ability to sync data over-the-air, and the ability to receive and send alerts and messages. “We believe that any enterprise mobile solution has three requirements: the ability to store data on the device, the ability to synchronize with back-end data over-the-air, and the ability to receive and react to real-time information. mPortal is able to provide all three features in a variety of ways, making our solution flexible and robust,“ said Sathiya Krishnan, CTO of mPortal.

Motorola University has traditionally been on the leading edge of technology and was quick to realize the benefits mobility can bring to enterprise applications. They will use the prototype built by mPortal to test their theory and potentially expand the Six Sigma® offering.

SafeShot Technologies Names Kevin Hanly as New Board Member

SafeShot Technologies Names Kevin Hanly as New Board Member

Company Continues to Attract Industry Leaders in Medical Device Engineering and Manufacturing

Mountain View, CA (Vocus) October 19, 2010

SafeShot Technologies, LLC, a leader in safety syringe innovation, today announced a new Board Member – Kevin Hanly, teacher of Engineering and Bio Medical Manufacturing at the Institute of Technology in Salt Lake City, Utah for the Granite school district. Kevin has more than 25 years of experience in managing Medical Device Manufacturing Operations within a highly FDA-regulated environment. He recently retired from the industry as V. P. of Manufacturing for ICU Medical in June 2009.

“We have been focused on advancing our technology for commercialization,” said Robert Beart, Emeritus Professor of Surgery at USC’s Keck School of Medicine and CEO of SafeShot. “With patents in place, the completion of our full-line of safety products, and the recruitment of industry leaders to take us to the next level in development, SafeShot is well on its way to addressing the growing issues of sharp’s injuries, syringe re-use, blood splatter and spread of HIV and Hepatitis. We are pleased to add Kevin HanlyHanly to our Board of Directors. His primary skill and strength is in medical device disposables, injection molding and high-speed automation technology. He is a true asset to our organization.”

According to the World Health Organization, someone dies every 24 seconds from an unsafe injection; that’s 1.3 million preventable deaths each year,” said SafeShot Technologies Co-Founder Dan Thayer. “22 million more are infected with HIV, Hepatitis and more. Nearly 1 million people in the US alone are victims of needlestick injuries, which cost the healthcare system $1.2 billion.”

The 2008 Study of Nurses Views on Workplace Safety and Needlestick Injuries by the American Nurses Association reveals Needlestick Injuries (NSIs) and blood-borne infections remain a major concern in the U. S., with two-thirds of all nurses having been accidentally stuck by a needle while working. Despite the Needlestick Safety and Prevention Act of 2000 which celebrates its 10-year anniversary this November, many healthcare professionals are still not being equipped with safety solutions to eliminate exposure to blood borne pathogens and sharps injuries.

“Getting a medical device product to market can take a lot of time and money” said Mr. HanlyHanly. “I’m very excited to be aligned with SafeShot Technologies because they have a technology I believe can make a tremendous impact in our world, and they have attracted an elite team of professionals who have been in the medical device industry or on the frontlines to the needlestick injury issue, and they know what needs to be done to bring a vision to reality. The spread of HIV and Hepatitis to innocent frontline healthcare workers, as well as anyone on the other side of a contaminated needle has to end.”

SafeShot Technologies’ affordable Epiphany Safety Syringe – a one-handed, single use, auto-retractable, auto-disabled safety syringe that upon use, retracts and securely holds the contaminated needle portion in the barrel cylinder for disposal eliminating any risk of getting pricked or exposed to blood borne viruses such as Hepatitis or HIV. After a single injection, the needle is permanently disabled.
About SafeShot Technologies

SafeShot Technologies, headquartered in Mission Viejo, California, is a new generation safety syringe development company with the mission to solve the needlestick issue with innovative technology. The Epiphany Safety Syringe is the first patented vacuum-triggered, one-handed, single-use, auto-retractable, auto-disabled safety syringe designed to provide superior value. There are an estimated 1 million needlestick injuries among 8.8 million workers in the U. S. SafeShot has more than a dozen U. S. patent applications and foreign counterparts in other major jurisdictions to address this growing problem.

Sales Assessment Test Beats Sales Aptitude Test or Sales Personality Test in Hiring Good Salespeople

Sales Assessment Test Beats Sales Aptitude Test or Sales Personality Test in Hiring Good Salespeople

Employers looking to hire a great salesperson, salesman or saleswoman can benefit from a real sales assessment test; better than a sales aptitude test or sales personality test; businesses can receive 10 free Sales Assessment Tests from Dan Joy, Inc.

Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) September 17, 2010

Employers seem to agree that hiring good sales people is one of the hardest things. So, how can an employer tell if a job applicant can really sell? This Sales Assessment Testing website can help. Businesses who wish to learn how to hire great sales reps, salesmen and saleswomen can receive 10 FREE Sales Assessment Tests from Dan Joy, Inc., as well as guidance on many related topics such as how to write an effective employment ad, the qualities of a good sales recruiter, traits and characteristics for a good sales person, etc., at http://www. danjoy. com/ (http://www. danjoy. com/)

Some old-style pre-hire sales aptitude tests or pre-employment sales personality tests try to disguise themselves as sales assessment tests, which they are really not. Those conventional sales personality tests or sales aptitude tests are often "blind" to the impact of a job applicant's sales experience, sales training and knowledge of sales techniques. The patent-pending JOY Tests (TM) of Total Sales Ability (TM) do not have that limitation, and can be used for pre employment testing and post hire evaluation of experienced sales professionals in many crucial areas of competency such as sales prospecting ability, sales presentation ability, sales closing ability, and much more.

It takes a different combination of sales abilities or sales competencies for acquiring new customers (a "sales hunter" role) versus maintaining and growing the existing accounts (a "sales farmer" role). Some salespeople are better at proactive aggressive selling (account acquisition), while others may be better at soft selling (account growth). The key is to try to match the salesperson to the role correctly when building a sales team.

Towards that end, Dan Joy, Inc. developed the powerful AccuDecide (TM) technology, and recently added it to all of its online sales assessment tests. The AccuDecide (TM) technology can help businesses hire the best salespeople or sales reps based on the type of sales landscape that they will be working in, namely, the nature of the products or services being sold, type of industry, price levels, degree of complexity, characteristics of the target market, and the type of sales role, e. g., a "soft selling" (key-account growth) role versus an "aggressive selling" (new account acquisition) role.

The powerful Dan JOY Tests (TM) can be used to test business development job applicants at different career stages, e. g., a frontline Salesperson (Non-manager) or a Sales Manager, Sales Director or VP of Sales & Marketing, for both B2B (business to business) and B2C (business to consumer) sales scenarios. Businesses may administer a sales test online to evaluate their current sales executives for promotion, retention or training purposes as well. The same sales assessments may also be used for testing Manufacturer's Reps, Sales Engineers, Distributors, Franchisees, Franchise Owners, Franchise Operators and the sales people at different franchised locations.

Furthermore, the Dan JOY Sales Tests (TM) may be used by manufacturers, distributors, service companies, contracting firms, retailers, spas, health clubs, fitness centers, banks, etc., for recruiting salespeople, area managers and regional sales managers to sell a wide range of products or services such as club memberships, machinery, automobiles, real estate, office equipment, machine parts, advertising, insurance, medical devices, engineering solutions, pharmaceuticals, hospital equipment, business services, etc.

In the past, pre-hire sales assessments were used primarily by large companies. The affordable sales ability tests of Dan Joy, Inc. are now within the easy reach of small to mid-sized businesses, too. For a limited time only, employers in USA can receive 10 free sales assessment test units (Screening Tests) at http://www. danjoy. com/ (http://www. danjoy. com/)

New Ways to Earn Extra Money on the Internet, Easy Work at Home Jobs and Home Based Business Opportunities

New Ways to Earn Extra Money on the Internet, Easy Work at Home Jobs and Home Based Business Opportunities

Since its inception in June, 2004, the fully automated, digital marketing system, titled The Golden Book of Proof, has generated nearly $5,000,000 in income for its users. Members of The Golden Book of Proof use this state of the art marketing techniques to market online financial and self-improvement education products (as well as the business opportunity), created by the company Golden Book, LLC. To view Golden Book of Proof in action visit www. golden-book-of-proof. com. Below you will find the reasons that have caused this system to virtually explode.

(PRWEB) October 25, 2004

The home-based business arena is exploding due to more and more people being laid off or just sick and tired of working forty hours a week for someone else and still not getting ahead. As a result, thousands of people are starting their own businesses daily. The biggest challenge is finding the “right” opportunity. There are thousands of home-based businesse opportunities and virtually all of them require some form of sales. This is one of the deterrents to many people seeking to work from home, because most people can‘t see themselves as a salesperson. In fact to many, the thought is down right frightening. One other challenge that people face is choosing a company with a compensation plan that is realistic. In most home businesses, the marketing plan is Multi-level marketing (MLM) and to make a good living ($5,000+ monthly) using an MLM system, the distributor needs to build an organization of thousands of people. This is a daunting task to the average individual.

The Golden Book of Proof eliminates the two biggest challenges that one has when faced with starting a home-based business. Number one, it does all of the selling for the user. It presents the product and opportunity to an interested prospect, so the distributor does not have to do it. It then invites the prospect to a live call where they can ask questions to some of the top leaders using the system. Once the system has done its job, the distributor simply helps the new business associate enroll and get started using The Golden Book of Proof. Number two, the compensation plan of Golden Book, LLC. (the company that The Golden Book has chosen to market for) is not MLM. For each sale that is made by The Golden Book System, the qualified director enjoys a healthy commission of $1,000 (qualifying only requires 2 training sales). With this revolutionary system, absolute beginners can start earning thousands of dollars weekly starting immediately. These two facts are what has fueled the success of the Golden Book system, and it is why this incredible, fully automated marketing system has already created nearly $5,000,000 in INCOME, not revenue, to the distributors that have been using it. You can view some very powerful testimonials from users of this system by following this link: http://golden-book-of-proof. com (http://golden-book-of-proof. com)

Now is an excellent time to get involved with the Golden Book of Proof. EPI is running an October special on qualifying as a director. For more Information visit Golden Book, LLC.Â’s website: http://golden-book-of-proof. com (http://golden-book-of-proof. com)

First Crowdsourced Women's Health Book Released

First Crowdsourced Women's Health Book Released

190 Women Share Experiences and Treatments for Painful, Common Chronic Condition

Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2009

CureTogether, a Health 2.0 Startup based in Silicon Valley, today released the first crowdsourced women's health book. Assembled from the input of 190 women living with a common, but poorly understood condition called vulvodynia, "Vulvodynia Heroes" is the product of an ongoing online research study at http://www. curetogether. com (http://www. curetogether. com).

"Patients decided on their own what symptoms and treatments they wanted to track and gathered detailed, quantitative data on their bodies and experiences," said Alexandra Carmichael, co-Founder of CureTogether. "The hope of this book is to spread awareness, reach out to people in pain who may not have heard of vulvodynia, and increase interest and funding for future research."

"The vulvodynia heroes are pioneers not just in investigating their own condition, but in developing self-cure practices that others can follow," said Gary Wolf, Contributing Editor of Wired and Blogger at The Quantified Self. "Many other women who are suffering will find this very helpful and inspiring," added Elizabeth Rummer, MSPT at the Pelvic Health and Rehabilitation Center in San Francisco.

Vulvodynia is a painful chronic condition that affects 16% of women at some point in their lives. It's one of the most active condition communities at CureTogether, with information about symptoms, treatments, and causes added by almost 200 women with vulvodynia. The "Vulvodynia Heroes" book is available at http://www. curetogether. com/VHeroes (http://www. curetogether. com/VHeroes).

About CureTogether
CureTogether launched in 2008 to help people anonymously track and compare health data -- to better understand their bodies, make more informed treatment decisions and contribute data to research. Starting with 3 conditions (Migraine, Endometriosis and Vulvodynia), its members have since expanded it to support 214 conditions.

HealthForumOnline Offers New Online CE Course on Working with Transgender Individuals

HealthForumOnline Offers New Online CE Course on Working with Transgender Individuals

HealthForumOnline (HFO), announces a new CE course entitled Health Care Needs and Health-Related Disparities: Building Cultural Competence in Working with Transgender Individuals to their extensive online library of nationally-approved continuing education (CE) courses for mental health professionals, nurses and allied healthcare workers. This theory - and evidence-based CE course discusses the multiple barriers to competent healthcare that transgender people face and how these life challenges contribute to substance abuse and HIV risk behaviors in this population. Healthcare professionals working with transgender people express the desire to treat patients with competence and respect, but frequently lack the information and resources to guide their practice. This course provides an introduction to the range of gender expressions and clinical experiences professionals may encounter along with culturally competent treatment guidelines and ways to overcome healthcare-related barriers among transgender individuals. All of HFO's CE/CEU courses are fast, convenient and especially cost-effective as health professionals have free ongoing access to course updates beyond completion of the CE activity.

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) March 31, 2009

HealthForumOnline (HFO) (http://www. healthforumonline. com/), a nationally-approved (APA, ASWB, NBCC, PSNA, CA-BBS) (http://www. healthforumonline. com/Accreditations/44/) online provider of continuing education (CE) for psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses and other allied healthcare professionals announces the addition of a new online CE course, Health Care Needs and Health-Related Disparities: Building Cultural Competence in Working with Transgender Individuals (http://www. healthforumonline. com/Our-Courses/Courses/47/categoryId__26/productId__85/), to the new LGBT category (http://www. healthforumonline. com/Our-Courses/16/categoryId__26/) of their extensive online CE resource library (http://www. healthforumonline. com/Our-Courses/16/).

The term transgender applies to a range of diverse individuals whose gender identity and/or gender expression is not concordant with the gender they were assigned at birth. Among many associated life challenges, transgender people face multiple social and institutional barriers to competent mental and physical healthcare regardless of whether or not they seek hormonal and/or surgical intervention. In addition, these life challenges and other related factors often contribute to substance abuse and HIV risk behaviors in this group. Thus, transgender individuals frequently find themselves in need of and simultaneously at odds with the healthcare system. "Healthcare providers who work with transgender people often express the desire to treat their patients with competence and respect, but also acknowledge frustration with the lack of information and resources available to inform their practice and expand their awareness of this highly varied population" notes course author Dr. Jae Sevelious.

While fear of being stigmatized and discriminated against can make it difficult to obtain an accurate prevalence of transgender identity, Bakker, Van Kesteren, Gooren, & Bezemer's 1993 study based in the Netherlands estimates that 1 in 11,900 people are male-to-female (MTF) and 1 in 30,400 are female-to-male (FTM). "What we do know is that transgender people are everywhere, in every culture, and in every size town and city" said Dr. Laura Stanton, co-founder and Clinical Director of HealthForumOnline.

This HFO course provides an introduction to the range of gender expressions and experiences providers may encounter in their practice along with treatment guidelines and ways to address the multiple barriers that transgender people often face in their search for culturally competent care. An overview of substance use and HIV prevalence and risk behaviors in transgender communities is be provided, along with risk reduction strategies and recommendations for enhancing quality of care for transgender clients.

Psychologists, social workers, counselors, nurses and other allied health professionals can now chose from HFO's 19 categories of topics related to health psychology and behavioral medicine (i. e., ethics, cancer adaptation, women's health, cultural diversity, eating disorders, reproduction/sexuality, aging/gerontology, pediatric behavioral medicine, assessment, chemical dependency, chronic/acute illness, clinical intervention, group therapy, infectious disease, long-term care, neuropsychology, pain management, spirituality, LGBT issues) containing over 60 courses available online or as downloadable, transportable PDFs. Health professionals can log on and complete CE courses at their own pace, on their own schedule, anywhere they have Internet access. CE certificates can be downloaded, printed and reprinted at any time to meet licensure renewal needs. Lastly, since HFO understands that busy health professionals need to have fast, convenient and cost-effective resources for state-of the-science education, we notify customers when their purchased CE course has been updated and enable customers to review these updates for free online even after they have completed the CE activity and generated their CE certificate.

For more information on this course or a complete listing of titles in our online CE resource library, visit HealthForumOnline. com.

About HealthForumOnline:

HealthForumOnline (HFO) is approved as a provider of CE courses by the American Psychological Association, the National Board of Certified Counselors, the Association of Social Work Boards, and several state professional organizations, including the Pennsylvania State Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation, and the California Board of Behavioral Sciences. HFO's CE Program's Advisory Committee and authors (http://www. healthforumonline. com/About-HealthForumOnline-Psychologists-Social-Workers-Counselors-Nurses-Physicians-and-Allied-Health-Professionals/18/) are comprised of over 60 nationally-recognized experts in behavioral medicine.


StructureTec Gets the David L. Lawrence Convention Center Ready to Take the World's Stage for the G20 Summit

StructureTec Gets the David L. Lawrence Convention Center Ready to Take the World's Stage for the G20 Summit

StructureTec's Consulting Services was enlisted to design and manage the installation of a new roof in time for the G20 Summit.

Kalamazoo, MI (PRWEB) September 24, 2009

In preparation for the G20 Summit being held in downtown Pittsburgh, PA on September 24 and 25, 2009, the Sports & Exhibition Authority (SEA) enlisted the consulting services of StructureTec to design and manage the installation of a new roof (http://www. structuretec. com/services/roofing) for the ballroom at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

The SEA contacted StructureTec (http://www. structuretec. com) shortly after receiving word from the White House at the end of May, 2009. Due to the Summit being designated a National Special Security Event (NSSE), and the area around the convention center being a secure restricted zone by mid-September, timing was critical.

StructureTec, in collaboration with the SEA's team, prepared the technical roofing specifications, based on a fully adhered reinforced 60 mil EPDM roofing system with a fully tapered insulation system to provide proper drainage on concrete deck areas.

After competitively bidding the project with local roofing contractors, the project was awarded to Phoenix Roofing. StructureTec provided site visits for field quality assurance during installation of the new roofing system (http://www. structuretec. com/services/roofing).

Shortly before completion of the project, the SEA requested StructureTec to design a structural platform to accommodate a projector that would display a welcome sign in different languages on the wall of the Marriott Hotel across from the convention center. This last-minute request, just prior to the area being locked down, required the structural engineering team at StructureTec to collaborate with a steel fabricator to construct and install the custom platform.

Despite the challenging timeframe of the project, StructureTec and the SEA completed the roof replacement project in time for the event.

StructureTec Corporation (http://www. structuretec. com) is a leading national building envelope consulting firm specializing in the restoration of building envelopes and roofs, providing solutions for the entire building envelope. StructureTec services Fortune 500 corporations, school systems, healthcare organizations, municipalities and governmental entities throughout North America.

Kazakhstan Is "Open Nation, Seek to "Harmonize" Foreign Interests, President Says

Kazakhstan Is "Open Nation, Seek to "Harmonize" Foreign Interests, President Says

"We are an open nation and prefer to conduct affairs so as not to pitch interests against each other, but rather to harmonize them," President Nursultan Nazarbayev said in the 20 February 2003 interview to "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" newspaper of Russia [excerpted below]. In it, Mr. Nazarbayev talks about the Kazakhstan's approach to relations with major players in the Caspian region and Central Asia and the future he envisions for his country.

(PRWEB) March 12, 2003

President of Kazakhstan's Interview to Nezavisimaya Gazeta of Russia, February 20, 2003

Question: This is the Year of Kazakhstan in Russia. How would that affect the relations between the two countries?

Nazarbayev: Eleven years have passed since the countries of the former USSR separated and became independent nations.

Today, relations between Kazakhstan and Russia move into a qualitatively new stage of development, because last year we reached a number of bilateral agreements that are already deemed breakthroughs. Moscow and Astana settled almost all the issues concerning the Caspian Sea. Russia and Kazakhstan taught a lesson of sorts to all the Caspian states about what is more effective: whether it is to seek agreement and work, or to spend decades arguing over the apple of discord.

Last year, we signed major agreements on long-term transit of Kazakhstan's oil through Russia and on cooperation in the gas sphere through establishing KazRosGaz joint venture to jointly seek entrance into the European energy market.

Question: There's a wide-spread view that the American military presence in Central Asia is in great part due to the West's desire to control the mineral resources of those countries. People talk about the expanding activities of foreign investors in Kazakhstan's oil market. How would you comment on this situation?

Nazarbayev: People do talk a lot about the clash of geopolitical interests of the world's powers in Central Asia and in the Caspian region. Recently, this issue became more pressing with the events around Afghanistan. It is important to be clear about it.

First, the action of the international antiterrorist coalition to restore order in Afghanistan got the support of all our countries, both nationally and within the Collective Security Treaty. Nobody is indemnified against terrorism.

Second, we are an open nation and prefer to conduct affairs so as not to pitch interests against each other, but rather to harmonize them. The economic presence of the world's powers, which share the same aspirations, brings an element of stability to the future development of the Caspian. On our part, we have to ensure the stability and security in the region and guarantee normal work of producing companies and investors.

This is why we seek to harmonize the international relations in the region and to promote close economic ties with the Caspian states.

The US companies officially announced the investment of $3 billion into the Tengiz oil field expansion, where Russia is also represented by LUKOIL.

Finally, I have one more point. Our national business has stood up on its feet and strengthened throughout the years of reforms. Kazakhstan's businessmen logically raised an issue of fully-fledged participation in financing and developing large projects on the same conditions as foreign investors who until recently had certain privileges. We accommodated their aspirations.

These are the factors to take into account when pondering over the activization of these and passive stance of those countries.

Question: Many associate Kazakhstan with oil and gas. What else does the country have to position itself in the world?

Nazarbayev: The nature has indeed been very generous in lavishing resources on us, and not only oil and gas. Kazakhstan is among the world's top ten coal producers. We have major deposits of iron, chromium and manganese ores.

But we did not earn natural resources. Fate gave them to us and we need to deal with them rationally. This is why we have never envisioned our future as a country solely dependent on exports of raw materials.

We implement a number of strategic programs to create a high-tech and competitive economy, and I can already say that oil has ceased to be our main source of revenue.

Question: How do you see Kazakhstan in 10 or 20 years?

Nazarbayev: I read many interviews, and I don't recall anybody replying to such a question without hesitation. It may sound strange but I will be happy to reply to it and tell you what will be there even in 30 years.

Kazakhstan's development is subject to a long-term strategy up to the year 2030. We plan that by that year Kazakhstan will have fully overcome the dependence on exports of raw materials and become an industrial power with a competitive economy and stable markets for its goods. We will have high-tech production, fully supply our country with products and will also import many goods. Our children and grandchildren will be well educated and in good health. They will speak Kazakh, Russian and English equally well. Their level of life will dwarf the present one. In 2030 our descendants will live in a country of developed democracy that would no longer be

At the periphery of international events.

It all may seem to be a dream but I can assure you that it will be so. Our development strategy is divided into stages and years, and all the state authorities work in full accordance with their own strategic plans based on this fundamental document. So if you want to call me an optimist, I would rather call myself a knowledgeable optimist.

“Energy Medicine” vs “Traditional Medicine” The Healing Codes Hit Mainstream

“Energy Medicine” vs “Traditional Medicine” The Healing Codes Hit Mainstream

Albert Einstein stated, "It is possible there exist human emanations that are still unknown to us. Do you remember how electrical currents and 'unseen waves' were laughed at? The knowledge about man is still in its infancy."

Upland, CA (PRWEB) December 21, 2005

Albert Einstein proved that all matter is controlled by energy (e=mc2). All energy has a measurable frequency. In current medical technology, energy frequencies are measured with MRI's, CAT scans, PET scans, EEG's, and others. A current kidney stone removal therapy works by raising the frequency of the kidney stone, causing it to explode internally. The Healing Codes treatments also use energy to heal the body. http://www. the-healingcodes. com (http://www. the-healingcodes. com) protocols heal the destructive pictures that are causing the wrong beliefs, which in turn are causing the energy frequencies of illness and disease

What is it? Energetic medicine, or bio-energetic consultation, is the practice of assessing and correcting health issues by way of the body's energy system, which allows the body's own immune system to do its normal healing work. The body's energy system has been a fundamental part of traditional and alternative medicine for many, many years.

An EEG measures the electrical activity of the brain in a similar way as the EKG measures electrical properties of the heart. When the paddles are used to revive someone in cardiac arrest, it is with the accepted knowledge that the body and heart run on electricity.

Over the past 50 years, the alternative health community has also effectively used various electrical methods, such as electronic acupuncture machines to assess various illnesses through the energy system of the person. In fact, without the use of the body's energy system for assessment purposes, modern traditional medicine would be set back 50 years or more. Energetic medicine takes an additional step by using the energy system for correction purposes as well as for assessment.

The Healing Codes discovered a mechanism in the body that allows the "Super Quantum," described by Paul Pearsall, PhD in his book The Heart's Code, to be stimulated for the remote gathering of information, and to stimulate healing. It transfers the conscious intent of the person as an instruction to the "Super Quantum" pilot of each cell in the body, which then enacts a healing response in that cell. http://www. the-healingcodes. com (http://www. the-healingcodes. com) coaches individuals so they can treat themselves by healing wrong, destructive pictures that develop into beliefs.

These are just some of the components of The Healing Codes. We continue to learn new and exciting ways of healing. We do not intend to remain fixated on the understanding we have today, as that would disallow growth. As our awareness of paths to healing deepens, we want to extend our findings to you.

Therefore, more components may be added to The Healing Codes as they are learned and tested. We desire that our methods always be dramatically helpful, never doing harm to anyone.

PhD Computing Boosts Monarch HealthCare's Web Capabilities

PhD Computing Boosts Monarch HealthCare's Web Capabilities

PhD Computing completed an extensive technological expansion of Monarch HealthCare's web site. The result is improved functionality and efficiency.

Glendora, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2007

PhD Computing, a southern California-based full-service web development company, recently completed an extensive technological expansion of the web site for Monarch HealthCare, a medical group of over 1900 independent Orange County physicians in private practice.

Owned and operated by doctors who believe in the "patients-first" philosophy of health care, Monarch is dedicated to practicing medicine the way it was meant to be. To improve both the efficiency of its website for Monarch employees and for the company's patients, Monarch enlisted the services of The Triad Group, a prominent Orange County-based marketing, advertising and design firm.

"Our task was to improve the functionality of their web site, and to make the online experience more dynamic for their patients and other visitors," said Steve Kaufman, President of the Triad Group. "We took charge of the redesign, and we brought in our IT Partner, PhD Computing, to handle the expansion of the site's technological capabilities, and the task of integrating that technology into the client's operation."

PhD Computing added a back-end administrator and a content management system, to allow Monarch to better control the content on their public web site. PhD also provided facilities for the company to store the information they collected on their web site in a database, and extended the site's reporting purposes into the human resources area for managing job openings.

"The goal we hoped to achieve was improved functionality and efficiency," said PhD Computing President Robert Patrick. "Based on the overwhelmingly positive feedback we have received, the new Monarch HealthCare web site now offers a more favorable user experience, for both visitors and Monarch's physicians and staff."

GoldenPalace. com Teams With MuscleMag and American Curves Model, Tana Gabrielle to Make Another "Showy" Appearance at Lowe's Motor Speedway in Charlotte, NC

Online casino, GoldenPalace. com will officially accept their newest Ebay win -- the famed helmet of Nascar driver, Robbie Gordon auctioned off for a whopping $51,000.00. Gordon will personally autograph the helmet on October 15th,2005 and present it to fitness/spokesmodel, Tana Gabrielle on behalf of GoldenPalace. com

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) October 15, 2005

GoldenPalace. com makes a pit stop at The Lowe's Motor Speedway, Saturday, October 15, 2005.

The infamous internet casino has recently made major headlines with their zany "human billboard" stunts and outrageous Ebay purchases. By far, GoldenPalace. com has devised one of the most successful advertising campaigns ever, having made quite a splash with the media and raising over $1,000,000.00 for charity to date. One of their most recent additions to their Ebay hall of fame is the helmet of Nascar driver, Robbie Gordon. Gordon, angry after being involved in an accident, threw the helmet at fellow Nascar driver, Micheal Waltrip at a recent New Hampshire International Speedway race. All in goodwill, Gordon then auctioned the helmet off on Ebay with GoldenPalace. com placing the winning bid of $51,000.00. All proceeds went to Harrah's Employee Relief Fund for recovery assistance for those families and employees affected by Hurrican Katrina. GoldenPalace plans to accept their prized possession with a little flair, of course.

Fitness model, Tana Gabrielle, of Charlotte, NC will be the official representative of GoldenPalace. com, on hand to accept the autographed helmet for the casino. Tana has been an active spokesperson in the fitness industry and published in several health and fitness publications, including MuscleMag and American Curves Magazine. Tana is no stranger to the antics of GoldenPalace. com, as they were also the winning bidder on her auction in May of this year. Tana auctioned herself off as a "body billboard babe", offering to wear a temporary tattoo all around her hometown of Charlotte, NC for a week. She was paid $3000.00 to display the GoldenPalace. com brand across her cleavage and caught the attention of several news and radio shows across the country. The casino contacted her last week in regards to the Nascar event and told her to "get ready" because it's time to "pull the tattoo out of the closet" once again.

Ithaca Area Wellness Program Delivers World-Class Results; Body Mind Restoration Retreats Celebrates 18th Season of Restorative Health

Ithaca Area Wellness Program Delivers World-Class Results; Body Mind Restoration Retreats Celebrates 18th Season of Restorative Health

In a world of promised quick fixes and diet fads, one little program has been delivering consistently remarkable results. Body Mind Restoration Retreats, located on the picturesque 60-acre grounds of the Ithaca Zen Center, began in 1993 with one 12-day retreat hosting eight participants. Since its humble beginning, the center has been growing in reputation and popularity and currently hosts seven retreat programs with over 300 in attendance.

Ithaca, NY (PRWEB) April 25, 2010

In a world of promised quick fixes and diet fads, one little program has been delivering consistently remarkable results. Body Mind Restoration Retreats, located on the picturesque 60-acre grounds of the Ithaca Zen Center, began in 1993 with one 12-day retreat hosting eight participants. Since its humble beginning, the center has been growing in reputation and popularity and currently hosts seven retreat programs with over 300 in attendance.

“Common symptoms such as excess weight, fatigue or anxiety are indicators that the body is out of balance and the mind is not at ease,” says program founder Marcia Radin. “Our retreats are designed to efficiently cleanse the body of toxic accumulations while providing complete and easy-to-assimilate nutrition.”

Marcia Radin, a long-time Ithaca area resident, studied the raw foods protocol with Ann Wigmore and continued on to receive a Master’s Degree with a concentration in complementary medicine. The retreat program she designed consists of an all raw food diet, including wheat grass and vegetable juices, exercise, yoga, colon care, meditation (including instruction), swimming, saunas and classes on healthy lifestyles.

“This is not a spa experience,” adds Radin, “it is a comprehensive program that introduces a way of living that leads to sustainable weight loss and good health. The combination of a living foods diet, exercise, colon care, health education classes, yoga, meditation and more allow a deep experience of well being that can not be found elsewhere.”

The retreats have helped thousands of people maintain good health and assisted their healing from a wide range of chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, diabetes, autoimmune problems, chronic fatigue, migraines, weight issues and more. Several medical clinics now refer their patients to the retreats to recover from chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Anyone interested in additional information or program dates can visit the center online at www. bodymindretreats. com or contact Body Mind Restoration Retreats directly at 607-277-7779 or info(at)bodymindretreats(dot)com.

The Song Inside of Her - Highland Park, Illinois Girl Wins Songwriting Contest From Hip Hop Duo Dr. Cool and Pride

The Song Inside of Her - Highland Park, Illinois Girl Wins Songwriting Contest From Hip Hop Duo Dr. Cool and Pride

Nine-Year-Old to Perform Her Original Tune ‘Dancin’ and Prancin’ with Chicago’s Coolest Black-and-White Singer, Songwriting Team--Dr. Cool and Pride September 6, 2004, Chicago International Toy & Game Fair—Navy Pier

Deerfield, IL (PRWEB) September 1, 2004

Hey, kids! Imagine writing your own song and having two of the coolest guys in Chicago sing it with you at the Chicago International Toy and Game Fair at Navy Pier!

Well, that’s what happened to nine-year-old Marisa Guggenheim of Highland Park, IL who won the first ever “The Song Inside of You” songwriting contest held by Dr. Cool and Pride, Chicago’s coolest black-and-white singer, songwriting team.

“I do write poems and stories, and I thought it would be so cool to write a song since I love music,” says Marisa, who was inspired to write the song after being in the audience for the filming of Dr. Cool and Pride’s debut concert DVD “The Feeling Good Concert.”

Dr. Cool and Pride will have Marisa join them on stage in a sing-along, dance along performance of her tune, “Dancing’ and Prancin,” during Dr. Cool and Pride’s concert at the Chicago International Toy and Game Fair (CHITAG), Monday, September 6, 12:00 noon, Exhibit Hall A, Navy Pier—the Midwest’s #1 family attraction. The concert is free with admission to the Fair. For more information about CHITAG, please call 847-677-8277 or visit www. chitag. com.

“Kids love music and with their MP3 players and iPods they can listen to a variety of songs, but these songs are not their own. Our contest enables kids to write a song about something meaningful in their lives – their dog, their friends, whatever is important to them. We looked for a tune that was fun and catchy, and promotes having a good time. Marisa’s song hit the mark,” says Dr. Cool.

Pride loves the kid-friendly lyrics and was able to add a creative beat that makes it easy for kids to dance to. “I love the word ‘tizzy’ and how the lyrics fit the beat,” says Pride. “We love to get the kids up and moving and what better way than to have them jam to a song of their own.”

For Marisa, who takes music in school and plays the piano, dancing around her house makes her day every time. “I wanted to write about something that makes me feel good and happy,” she adds.

Dr. Cool and Pride invite their young fans to tap into their own personal creativity and join in the fun of writing songs. Thus, the “The Song Inside of You” contest was born. The next contest is now open and the deadline is September 30, 2004. Visit www. drcoolandpride. com/songwriting. html (http://www. drcoolandpride. com/songwriting. html) for rules and eligibility. There’s even a section on the web site called Songwriting 101 that teaches kids how to write a song.

For the past several years, Dr. Cool (Jeff Bizar) and Pride (Famos Guider) have devoted themselves to encouraging kids to make healthy choices, respect others, and accept themselves just the way they are through their unique mix of hop-hop, rock and conscious rap. Their groundbreaking music and lyrics are hip and contemporary, in tune with today's kids, but their messages are Golden Oldies—character-building values that parents everywhere appreciate and applaud.

Dr. Cool and Pride’s “The Feeling Good Concert” TV special was recently broadcast over CBS 2 Chicago and their award-winning “The Feeling Good Concert” DVD received the All-Star Rating from KIDS FIRST!®, the highest rating available in the KIDS FIRST! program, and the Dove Foundation Family Review Board’s Seal of Approval for content that is appropriate for family viewing.

“The Feeling Good Concert” is the first in a series of live action programs featuring the music and messages of Dr. Cool and Pride. In the works are a national concert tour, books, more videos, and a television series, which presents the performers in an innovative, interactive format and involves kids in writing their own songs. For more information about Dr. Cool and Pride, call 1-847-564-1269 or visit www. drcoolandpride. com.
