Insurance Comparison Shopping; The Trend Towards Insurance Portals

Insurance Comparison Shopping; The Trend Towards Insurance Portals

The one-stop insurance portal quoting services are here to stay...consumers are increasingly valuing fast, efficient online comparison services for health insurance quotes over smaller, more personally targeted websites.

(PRWEB) February 20, 2005

Like consumers for other e-commerce products, health insurance customers are increasingly turning to a new kind of online shopping; researching insurance quotes from an insurance portal. Previously, consumers would visit carrier sites directly to get health insurance information, and then perform their own comparison shopping by visiting multiple carriers and choosing different coverage options. This process is time-consuming and tedious, and carrier sites sometimes make it difficult to find the information consumers are looking for. Now, consumers are turning to portal sites, like www. california-insurance-finders. com, for one-stop comparison shopping from multiple carriers.

California Insurance Finders is a service that connects consumers shopping for health insurance with licensed agents in California who represent major nationwide health insurance carriers. This personalized service is available free of charge on their website.

The convenience of having one health insurance portal site bringing consumers quotes from multiple insurance carriers is fast becoming the selling point in the fiercely competitive online health insurance quoting industry, with sites like www. california-insurance-finders. com, fast becoming the one-stop health insurance shopping site of choice for customers wanting an instant online quote comparison.

California Insurance Finders is not a licensed health insurance agent nor do we sell insurance. California Insurance Finders is a 100% advertiser supported insurance search engine. We are not a carrier, agent, or broker. When you choose to inquire with an advertiser on California Insurance Finders, your information remains between you and that advertiser(s). Advertisers are solely responsible for keeping their information current.

WILDFIRE Solutions Group Celebrates 12 Years of Excellence by Teaming with a Giant

WILDFIRE Solutions Group Celebrates 12 Years of Excellence by Teaming with a Giant

WILDFIRE has teamed up with M2CGlobal Corporation of Carrolton, Texas, the formulator of the newest technology in the energy drink world, A. C.T. (Advanced Cell Therapy).

Grapevine, TX (PRWEB) November 30, 2005

M2CGLOBAL started as an idea. A simple idea to create a drink that would appeal to literally millions of people... A. C.T. was born. WILDFIRE has teamed up with M2CGlobal Corporation of Carrolton, Texas, the formulator of the newest technology in the energy drink world, A. C.T. (Advanced Cell Therapy).

ACT is a revolutionary energy drink, not one of the hundreds of existing energy products already on the market.

This crystalline extract powder mixes quickly and easily in water, becoming a beverage bursting with vitamins, amino acids and herbal extracts in a form that is highly available at the cellular level.

"Literally within minutes (most people average between 10-15 minutes) one feels significant effect from this scientific, nutritional beverage and the effects last. In most cases the mental clarity, stamina, energy and overall sense of well being last anywhere from 4-8 hours or longer depending on one’s body metabolism, without the build ups and crashes that come from so many "energy products" that are essentially little more than mega shots of sugar and caffeine," according to Scott Hailey, founder of WILDFIRE.

Unlike many products on the market that have to go through multiple channels of distribution before reaching the consumer A. C.T. is affordable.

M2CGlobal recognized the huge market need by selling directly online and shipping direct to the consumer. This gives us a major advantage in providing value to our end consumer. Since M2CGlobal owns the laboratory and the manufacturing facilities, we literally ship our product direct without one single sales channel in between, thus allowing M2CGlobal to sell below wholesale.

M2CGlobal offers a legitimate, free home-based business opportunity for the masses. M2CGlobal offers that opportunity to anyone looking for a legitimate business focused on sharing our affordable products.

M2CGlobal has accumulated leading minds that maintain excellence in several key areas of human health and performance. Together they reinforce M2CGlobal’s commitment to develop only the best pharmaceutical grade products that science has to offer so one can quickly notice results. Truly the best of science and nature combined. M2CGlobal also follows the strictest guidelines and operating procedures (SOP) as set forth by the United States FDA for the manufacturing of over the counter drugs (OTC).

About Us: WILDFIRE represents m2cglobal on a global scale. Lead by 12 year veteran Scott Hailey, WILDFIRE has been recognized as the source to go to when investigating cutting edge nutrition.

Healthwise Unveils Information Therapy: Health care providers will write information prescriptions as a supplement to clinic visits, tests, and treatments

Healthwise Unveils Information Therapy: Health care providers will write information prescriptions as a supplement to clinic visits, tests, and treatments.

Healthwise, Incorporated, a long-standing nonprofit leader in producing medical information for consumers, has launched a “prescription information” concept called information therapy.

Healthwise Unveils Information Therapy:

Health care providers will write information prescriptions as a supplement to clinic visits, tests, and treatments.

Washington, D. C., and Boise, Idaho, January 23, 2002—Healthwise, Incorporated, a long-standing nonprofit leader in producing medical information for consumers, has launched a “prescription information” concept called information therapy. Healthwise unveiled today the new Washington, D. C.-based Center for Information Therapy (CIT) and an 11-member commission to support information therapy programs among doctors, hospitals, and health plans.

Information is powerful medicine. When prescribed as an integrated part of health care, it can be as important to a patient’s health as any test, surgery, or medicine. Unlike free-floating health content on the Internet, information prescriptions—called “information therapy”—are delivered electronically to people right before or after a doctor visit, test, or surgery; when they receive medicine; or at any other specific “moment of care.”

The new endeavor marks a shift in health care delivery where information is prescribed to patients, just as medicine is prescribed; and where doctors may even be reimbursed for such prescriptions. Commissioners believe that integrating information prescriptions into health care is key to helping consumers and doctors better communicate in todayÂ’s time-limited environment. The results will be better care, fewer medical mistakes, and lower health care costs.

“Today’s consumers are ready to play a bigger role in their health care decisions,” said

Donald W. Kemper, MPH, chairman and CEO of Healthwise and founding chair of the CIT. “Information therapy finally gives doctors, health plans, and hospitals a way to provide patients with the information they need to be informed, active members of the health care team.”

CIT Commissioner John Rother, who is director of policy and strategy for AARP, said, “In today's complex health care environment, information therapy can be a powerful key for consumers to feel more in control of their health. Information therapy can also play a positive role in bringing together all parties involved in health care to produce more effective results.”

An Ix Story

Kemper believes that consumer involvement in care has been inhibited because most doctors still use “mouth-to-ear” technology to communicate with patients. Verbal communication may be convenient, but so much of the information is lost that patients rarely gain enough knowledge and confidence to fully engage in medical choices. Ix programs change that. (Ix is medical shorthand for information therapy, similar to Rx, Dx, and Tx.)

HereÂ’s a fictional example: Jessica tumbles on the ski slope, hurts her knee, and winds up in the emergency room. Following x-rays and a brace, she is sent home with verbal information about the injury, blurry written instructions on home treatment, and directions to make an appointment with an orthopedic specialist. Without information therapy, Jessica likely forgets, mishears, or misplaces most of the information the ER doctor relayed to her. With information therapy, JessicaÂ’s emotional distress wonÂ’t hamper her ability to follow the doctorÂ’s recommendations. By the time she arrives home she has

Received a secure electronic Ix prescription that links her to specific, doctor-approved information about “knee injury overview,” “home treatment for knee injuries,” and “how to prepare for a visit to a specialist about knee injuries.”

Information therapy prescriptions are generated for Jessica each time she accesses the health care system for her knee injury, helping her to make decisions with the orthopedist about diagnostic tests, like an MRI, and treatment options, like rehabilitation and surgery. Each time she and her doctor need to communicate clearly and make a decision, Jessica receives relevant, in-depth, and decision-focused information to help her be a better partner with her doctor. The result is a more confident patient, more efficient providers, better health care decisions, fewer mistakes, a reduction of unnecessary medical costs, and, ultimately, a better health care experience for all parties.

“Information therapy looks at patients as health care partners, not recipients,” said NCQA President and CIT Commissioner Margaret E. O’Kane. “Engaging patients in their own health care consistently is one of the best ways to improve outcomes.”

Reimbursable Medical Service

According to Kemper, doctor-patient communication is inadequate because it isn’t paid for. If payers—insurance companies and reimbursement agencies—would agree to pay providers for this vital part of health care, doctor-patient communication would improve significantly.

The Center for Information Therapy makes the case that information therapy qualifies as a reimbursable medical service, because the prescriptions of information therapy are evidence-based, documented, and directed to a diagnosed patient condition. The information sent to patients must be of the highest quality—or prescription-strength—meaning that it is based on up-to-date medical evidence and written and illustrated in a consumer-friendly and decision-focused manner.

Innovative Technology

Physicians, hospitals, and health plans implement information therapy by using innovative technology that links medical keywords and codes (like ICD-9, CPT, and others) to specific information from vast consumer health information databases like the Healthwise® Knowledgebase. The thousands of topics in the Healthwise Knowledgebase are indexed to the same keywords and codes so that clinicians can use a PDA, scheduling and billing systems, electronic medical records, and other means of sending the relevant prescription to the patient. The Healthwise Knowledgebase is updated quarterly to the most current health information, and it covers thousands of health topics, medications, tests, surgeries, and self-help groups. It contains valuable Decision Points and Actionsets for helping consumers make decisions.


Prestigious Commission

The priorities and policy positions of the Center for Information Therapy will be directed by an independent Information Therapy Commission composed of health care and consumer leaders from across the health care industry. Founding commissioners include:

· Susan Edgman-Levitan: Formerly President of The Picker Institute

· James L. Field: Executive Director of The Advisory Board Company

· Donald W. Kemper, MPH: Chairman and CEO of Healthwise; Chairman of Hi-Ethics; Founding Chairman of the Center for Information Therapy

· Albert G. Mulley, Jr., MD, MPP: Chief of the General Medicine Division and Director of the Medical Practices Evaluation Center, Massachusetts General Hospital; Scientific Director of the Foundation for Informed Decision Making

· Annette OÂ’Connor, PhD: Acting Program Director of Clinical Epidemiology, Ottawa Health Research Institute

· Margaret E. OÂ’Kane: President of the National Committee for Quality Assurance

· Peter J. Plantes, MD: Vice President of Consumer, Patient, and Physician Services, VHA, Incorporated

· John Rother: Director of Legislation and Public Policy, AARP

· John W. Rowe, MD: Chairman, President, and CEO of Aetna

· Edward Wagner, MD: Director of the MacColl Institute for Healthcare Innovation, Center for Health Studies, Group Health Cooperative

· Paul Wallace, MD: Executive Director of the Care Management Institute, Kaiser Permanente

“By matching their data on individuals’ health care to the growing body of evidence-based clinical information, health plans can add value to their members,” said Dr. John W. Rowe, chairman, president, and CEO of Aetna. “Development of such personalized files will foster more informed decision making on the part of patients.”

Ix Resources

The Center for Information Therapy will support information therapy programs, conduct research about how information therapy affects health care quality and utilization, and encourage payers and policy makers to reimburse providers for information therapy. In addition, the CIT will promote outreach programs for underserved areas.

How To Keep Your Fitness Resolutions From Fading

How To Keep Your Fitness Resolutions From Fading

5 simple tips to rev-up your resolution to get fit

(PRWEB) January 31, 2005

January is almost over. How are you doing on your list of fitness New YearÂ’s Resolutions? If you are like most people, they are gradually starting to fade. But they donÂ’t have to completely disappear.

Rev-up your resolutions with a few simple tips from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).

1. Be reasonable. Often times, the New Year brings high hopes and unrealistic expectations. When setting fitness goals, know how your body works. "Healthy weight loss is about 2 pounds per week,” advises Keith Cinea, MA, CSCS,*D, NSCA-CPT, Educational Programs and Products Coordinator for the NSCA. “Weight loss above this amount may shock the body, making it harder to lose weight."

2. Take small steps. There are short, medium, and long-term goals. Many people skip the short and medium goals, and go straight for the long-term results. The old axiom applies: “People donÂ’t plan to fail, they fail to plan.” Results will come, but you have to be patient and continue on your fitness plan—eating a sensible diet and exercising more. 

3. Work out with a partner. Surround yourself with positive people who have the same goals. “A workout partner makes you more accountable--you are less likely to skip a workout because you know they are waiting for you,” recommends Peter Melanson, MS, CSCS,*D, NSCA-CPT, Educational Programs Coordinator for the NSCA. “A partner also allows you to work harder, especially in the weight room, knowing you have a spotter there to help.”

4. Reward yourself. When you reach a goal, however small you may think it is, reward yourself with a small gift— preferably fitness related (a new pair of shoes, work-out equipment, or clothing). After a few small goals are completed and you realize that you can do it, the larger goals won’t seem so impossible.

5. Get help. Get the motivation and expert training you need by hiring a personal trainer. “Personal trainers not only provide an accountability aspect to training, but they are also professionally trained to know exactly what you need to do to reach your fitness goals,” explains Michael Barnes, MEd, CSCS,*D, NSCA-CPT, NSCA Education Director.

The NSCA offers a free personal trainer locator service on its web site at www. nsca-lift. org/trainers (http://www. nsca-lift. org/trainers).

A healthy lifestyle is an ongoing process. Don’t get discouraged—get going.

About the NSCA

The National Strength and Conditioning Association is the leading authority on strength and conditioning. For more than 27 years, the NSCA has bridged science and application to provide reliable, research-based, strength and conditioning information to its members and the general public. With nearly 30,000 members worldwide, the NSCA is the largest health and fitness association in the world.

Yohimbe and Erectile Dysfunction

Yohimbe and Erectile Dysfunction

The real promise of yohimbe actually is not its value as medication for erectile dysfunction in men who indeed suffer from the condition, but its power to enhance sexuality in healthy subjects. Yohimbe is probably the most underrated recreational drugs around. It's not just a sex enhancer; it's a philosophical life enhancer. It has the clear potential to give new meaning to the lives of men at mid-life and beyond. Yohimbe restores pride and enjoyment. For performance and sheer manhood, men at 50 who have ingested yohimbe can compete with any young gigolo. Forget such esoteric nonsense as tantra yoga and the tao of love. All you need is yohimbe. Visit VirilityEX. com for the worlds leading proprietary blend of Yohimbe.

(PRWEB) December 1, 2004

Yohimbe is a herbal medication made of the bark of an African tree (Corynanthe yohimbe or Pausinystalia yohimbe). Yohimbine is an indole alkaloid that makes for about 1 percent of the volume of yohimbe bark. Other indole alkaloids contained in yohimbe bark are: isoyohimbine, allo-yohimbine (dihydroyohimbine), yohimbinine, yohimbane, yohimbenine, corynanthein, and others (Betz et al., 1995; Budavari, 1996; Leung and Foster, 1996).

Impotence (now medically referred to as erectile dysfunction) is a condition much more complicated than most diseases. Many diseases are single-cause conditions.

While sildenafil citrate or what is more commonly know as Viagra (Viagra is a Registered Trademark of Pfizer) may be the medication of choice for plain erectile dysfunction, yohimbe has a better potential in treating impotence overall. This is the case because yohimbine, and the unrefined yohimbe, do not just cause a hardening of the male organ but also have psychological effects, making those who have ingested it easier to stimulate mentally, generally more alert, and more agitated. There is a sexual component in these attributes, which is not available from ingesting sildenafil citrate.

The real promise of yohimbe actually is not its value as medication for erectile dysfunction in men who indeed suffer from the condition, but its power to enhance sexuality in healthy subjects. Yohimbe is probably the most underrated recreational drugs around. It's not just a sex enhancer; it's a philosophical life enhancer. It has the clear potential to give new meaning to the lives of men at mid-life and beyond. Yohimbe restores pride and enjoyment. For performance and sheer manhood, men at 50 who have ingested yohimbe can compete with any young gigolo. Forget such esoteric nonsense as tantra yoga and the tao of love. All you need is yohimbe. Visit VirilityEX. com for the worlds leading proprietary blend of Yohimbe.

Because of its potential as recreational drug, some eager government may sooner or later prohibit yohimbe. It has escaped this fate because as recreational drug, its target groups are not the young but mid-age adults (and adulterers).

How do yohimbe and yohimbine feel? If you have enough experience with it to be aware of slight symptoms, you will know that yohimbine is taking over when you notice increased salivation. There will be a tendency for an accelerated heartbeat, mostly effected by mental stimulation. There will not necessarily be an increased heartbeat from physical exercise.

Rather, the capacity for physical exercise will probably be enhanced for many people, with a pulse frequency ordinary for the chosen exercise. Some users have mentioned that they sweat less when on yohimbe, but for me, excessive sweating is more likely. Scientific studies have confirmed that yohimbine does not raise blood pressure, even though one may feel as if one has an elevated blood pressure because of a certain degree of nervousness caused by the drug. But a dangerously low blood pressure, rather than an elevated one, is associated with a yohimbine overdose.

Yohimbe will not make you desire a sexual partner whom you would not desire when not on yohimbe. Rather the opposite. But you can become mentally very fixed on a partner you actually do desire.

Yohimbe and yohimbine will make those who have ingested it easier to stimulate sexually. Yohimbe works mentally and physically towards this end, with both aspects strongly interacting. Men who normally have problems having an erection will feel a mental stimulation from the fact that a hard-on comes easy.

Yohimbe definitely increases erectile rigidity, and may increase erectile capacity.

Yohimbine will definitely make orgasms more powerful. It will do this by postponing the point of ejaculation, and by making the orgastic release more strongly felt. On the route to the orgastic release, there will be an accelerated heartbeat, caused by mental stimulation rather than physical effort.

As it is the case with most medications, one will, after a while, develop a certain tolerance for yohimbine. You can expect that after the 500th time, you can easily ingest double the amount you ingested initially, and you will likely have fewer problems with side effects. Unfortunately, for the desired sexual effect, you will probably still need a dosage at which side effects, such as nervousness, will again occur. You can't have the roses without the thorns.

Nevertheless, the pro-sexual effect of yohimbine doesn't wear off in the same way the pro-sexual effect of neurophysiological agents such as bromocriptine (Parlodel) does. Sexuality-enhancing neurophysiological agents are usually medications for Parkinson's disease, and that their therapeutic effect loses strength with time is what limits the value of these medications. In this instance, we are not primarily talking about sexual enhancement. For people who need dopamine-supporting medications such as bromocriptine, their loss of therapeutic effect is often a death verdict.

News & World Report's "2009-10 America's Best Hospitals" guide. Clarian's Methodist Hospital and Indiana University Hospital are the only Indiana hospitals included in the rankings, and are among only 174 hospitals recognized out of the 4,861 evaluated nationwide.

Published in the July 21 issue of U. S. News & World Report, the guide ranks clinical programs at Clarian, a partner of Indiana University School of Medicine, in nine of the 16 specialties evaluated. This is U. S. News' 20th year of ranking America's elite medical centers "to help patients find the best hospital when the need is great"; it is Clarian/IUSM's 12th consecutive appearance in the guide.

In June, seven specialty programs at Riley Hospital for Children were ranked among the top 30 children's hospitals in the nation. Riley's urology program was ranked third in the nation.

The complete guide and hospitals rankings are available online at www. usnews. com.

Clarian's recognized adult programs and their numerical rankings are:

Internationally Acclaimed Author Shows Readers How to Balance Body, Mind and Spirit

The Trinity of Health by psychologist Carmen Harra shows how seven guiding principles can produce a richer, longer and more fulfilling life.

Manhattan, NY and Hollywood, Fla. (PRWEB) October 11, 2007

Written by renowned clinical psychologist, metaphysician, and radio personality Carmen Harra, The Trinity of Health is a masterfully crafted manual that guides readers into reestablishing real health by illustrating how to reconnect with themselves and their world.

Health and happiness are everyone's birthright, but acquiring them means finding a new balance, proposes Carmen Harra in her wise manual. Harra suggests that while exercising the body is crucial, the mind and spirit also need a workout. She advises that readers follow what she calls the "seven golden principles of totality." Only through these seven fundamentals will readers learn how to find balance and seek joy, cultivate awareness, avoid reactivity, treasure togetherness, return to Mother Nature, create good karma, and embrace responsibility. Readers can expect to emerge from this book with a sense of rejuvenated health and a new aim at life.

Part I of The Trinity of Health demonstrates how to easily incorporate these spiritual values so as to elevate consciousness beyond the mundane and confining routines of everyday. Once readers have spread the wings of their minds and spirits, they can refocus on their bodies. Part II serves as a complete guide to smart nutrition. It illustrates a fail-proof method to lose and maintain weight, teaches one how to choose wholesome yet unbelievably satisfying foods, and even offers a revolutionary seven-day program to optimum health. Written with intelligence and insight, readers will find The Trinity of Health as essential as a daily vitamin.

Rancher, state vet to speak of food safety at City Club of Portland forum

Rancher, state vet to speak of food safety at City Club of Portland forum

On Friday, March 19, City Club of Portland welcomes to its Friday Forum two experienced agriculture professionals—rancher Jack Southworth and state veterinarian Dr. Andrew A. Clark—to discuss food safety, especially that of beef production in light of the recent detection of mad cow disease in Washington last December. The two presenters will discuss what happened and what interventions are underway; how BSE prevention activities and other quality assurance programs relate to food safety, especially of meat products; the real risks involved; and the roles of producers and regulatory agencies.

Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 10, 2004

On Friday, March 19, City Club of Portland welcomes to its Friday Forum two experienced agriculture professionals—rancher Jack Southworth and state veterinarian Dr. Andrew A. Clark—to discuss food safety, especially that of beef production in light of the recent detection of mad cow disease in Washington last December. The two presenters will discuss what happened and what interventions are underway; how BSE prevention activities and other quality assurance programs relate to food safety, especially of meat products; the real risks involved; and the roles of producers and regulatory agencies.

Last December, mad cow disease was detected in a Canadian-born cow slaughtered in Washington. The disease -- officially bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE -- is a chronic, degenerative disorder that attacks the central nervous system of cattle. It is believed to spread when infected animals are turned into animal feed, allowing infected tissue into the food chain. BSE has been linked to a fatal brain-wasting disease in humans and has devastated international cattle trade from affected nations. While U. S. beef producers contend their product is safe, one watchdog group suggests that a typical burger patty is packed with parts of 50 to 100 cattle from multiple states and two to four countries. In a yearÂ’s time, it says, the average American samples a veritable herd: 5,200 to 10,400 cattle.

What are the health risks with this staple of the American diet? How did BSE end up here? WhoÂ’s responsible? What are the risks to our livestock and our food supply? WhatÂ’s being done to protect the public... and is it enough?

This program, which is open to the public, will be held at Multnomah Athletic Club (1849 S. W. Salmon St.). Doors open at 11:30 AM. The program runs from 12:15 to 1:15 PM. Luncheon reservations and cancellations are available online at www. pdxcityclub. org or from (503) 228-7231 (members only call 503-241-9242) by 2 PM Wednesday, March 17. Luncheon tickets are $16 for members, $18 for nonmembers. Coffee tickets are $5 at the door. General seating is free for members and $5 for nonmembers.

The week of March 14-20, 2004 is National Agriculture Week.

Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) November 30, 2009

“The Golden Gays”, this fall’s runaway hit Drag Musical Spoof and Tribute is back in 2010 with their first tour. The elderly girls jaunt will begin with a grand reopening of the show at the Meta Theatre (Melrose and Fairfax in Hollywood) January 22nd – January 30th. The Fab Five men in gals clothes then take the ribald musical parody to a brand new 200 seat venue in Palm Springs at the Temple Isaiah Pavilion on Alejo for one weekend only February 5th, 6th and 7th. After a two-week rest of their tired old bones, the girls will perform their little hearts out to attendees in South Beach at the Colony Theatre on Lincoln Boulevard. All the original cast members of the show expected to make the trip barring any unforeseen health issues prominent with this vulnerable demographic. The Miami Dates are February 26th, 27th and 28th 2010.

John Patrick Trapper’s Drag Musical Comedy Spoof “The Golden Gays” is the story of four men who have not been able to release their obsession with the third most popular sitcom ever and see the same therapist to try and work through the problem. Unfortunately, the therapist (played by drag illusionist Aaron Barrera) has his own obsessions with various television icons. Next comes some incredibly funny advice from a well knows sitcom figure from the 70s and 80s (voiced over by Marla Gibbs, the original Florence from the Jefferson’s). The result is the new Fab Five moving on up into a deluxe tenement in Miami where they emulate the lives of the girls with some seemingly counter productive input from their therapist. As they work through the issues, they occasionally come to breaking points that are found in the lyrics of some colorful parodies of their favorite show tunes (and your too if you love Les Miserable, Kiss me Kate, Guys and Dolls, Pippin, Mame or Priscilla, Queen of the Desert).

While spoofing the famous show is nothing new, critics have hailed this version as a wonderful tribute to the actors and writers who made the show famous. It sets out not only to bring them back to life, but also to share some trivia about the show and the people involved through song and spoof. Great care was taken in presenting all four of the original actors comedic abilities and multi-dimensionality. This is the story about four men who love the Golden Girls as much as the biggest fan in the audience does. That’s why it works.

John W. McLaughlin who won accolades as Damien, the bitchiest of the four who obsesses about Dorothy returns to the show where he will continue to channel the late Bea Arthur’s comedic skills. David Romano will assist by throwing out comedic zingers as Samuel (Sophia) while John Downey III (Blaine/Blanche) will keep the revolving door of the new homestead as a passageway for many men (all played by the dreamy Ron Velasco). When he manages to figure out whom he is supposed to play in the therapeutic role-play, Robert Glen Decker, who also doubles as the shows musical Director plays Roger/Rose. The ensemble is topped off perfectly by nationally known comedian Julia Lillis who plays all the female roles.

The show opened at a the Cavern Club Celebrity Theatre, a cabaret space in Silver Lake Los Angeles this past September where it played to over sold houses for three weeks and went on to an extended run at the Complex Theatre on historic Theatre Row. Although the show was well received, the creative team has gone back to the script and done some rewrites that should leave audiences even more pleased with the storyline.

The Meta Theatre is an adorable space in the Melrose district of West Hollywood where many well-known actors and shows have gotten their start. The newly created space will be unveiled in the beautiful ballroom in the heart of downtown Palm Springs at the Temple Isaiah Pavilion located on Alejo Avenue. The Miami show is being produced locally and co-sponsored by The Miami Gay Men’s Chorus. Shows in all three cities will donate some of the proceeds to gay related charities. Tickets and more information can be found on the website www. thegoldengays. com

BioSphere Medical Sponsors Uterine Fibroid Workshop at Brigham and Women's Seminar

BioSphere Medical Sponsors Uterine Fibroid Workshop at Brigham and Women's Seminar

BioSphere Medical is sponsoring a Uterine Fibroid Workshop at Brigham and Women's Hospital's fifth annual Women's Health Forum, to be held on November 8, 2003.

(PRWEB) November 5, 2003

ROCKLAND, Mass.--(PRWEB)—November 3, 2003--BIOSPHERE MEDICAL, (NASDAQ:BSMD) announced today that it is a sponsor of Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s highly acclaimed fifth annual Women’s Health Forum 2003, to be held on Saturday, November 8, 2003, at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. A wide variety of women’s health issues will be discussed, including a presentation by Brigham and Women’s Hospital’s Richard Baum, MD, chief of the division of angiography and interventional radiology, and Elizabeth A. Stewart, MD, clinical director of the center for uterine fibroids, on less invasive treatment options for the treatment of non-cancerous uterine fibroids.

It is estimated that 20 to 40 percent of women in the U. S. 35 years or older experience non-cancerous uterine fibroids. It is also estimated that up to 80 percent of African American women experience these fibroids.

Currently, most fibroid symptoms are relieved by hysterectomy – the surgical removal of the uterus – or by myomectomy – the surgical removal of the fibroids.


Add one

Drs. Baum and Stewart, MD to speak on UFE

However, both are in-patient procedures and require a six to eight week recovery time.

Drs. Baum and Stewart will discuss several options for the treatment of fibroids, including an out-patient, uterus-saving procedure called uterine fibroid embolization (UFE). UFE is performed by an interventional radiologist (IR), who is specially trained to use catheters to access blood vessels. The IR makes a small “nick” in the skin in the upper thigh and inserts a catheter into the arteries that supply the fibroids. A number of small, inert particles, such as BioSphere Medical’s Embosphere® Microspheres, are injected at the base of the fibroid’s blood supply to stop the blood flow to the fibroids. By stopping the blood flow, the fibroids will shrink and the women’s symptoms regress and/or disappear.

Recent studies support the conclusion that uterine fibroid embolization (UFE), myomectomy, and hysterectomy have similar rates of symptom control. However, these studies indicate that women who have UFE have the added benefits of reduced hospitalization, lower complication rates, a shorter recovery period, and quicker return to normal activities than women who experience myomectomy or hysterectomy.

If you are interested in attending Drs. Baum and StewartÂ’s seminar on UFE and a full-spectrum of other seminars on current womenÂ’s health issues contact Brigham and WomenÂ’s Hospital at 1-800-BWH-9999, Monday - Friday, 8am - 5pm.

Colorado Technical University Online Announces Sharon Doffing as the 2006 Distinguished Alumnus Recipient

Colorado Technical University Online Announces Sharon Doffing as the 2006 Distinguished Alumnus Recipient

Summa Cum Laude Graduate uses online learning program to earn degree while running for political office.


Colorado Technical University Online (http://www. ctuonline. edu (http://www. ctuonline. edu)) announced today that on November 11, 2006, Sharon Doffing was awarded the University's first ever Distinguished Alumnus award.

Doffing's success story began with a desire for knowledge and new opportunities, like so many others who choose to continue their education at Colorado Tech Online: "I have always had a personal interest in learning about business and economics," said this graduate of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration degree program. "I wanted to update my education, especially in the area of e-commerce, and I wanted to increase my earning potential. I began to look into universities that offered online learning because it fit my busy lifestyle."

Colorado Tech Online was highly recommended to Doffing by a friend who works in education. When Doffing learned about the hands-on, project-based learning approach at Colorado Tech Online, she knew she wanted to enroll: "I was immediately impressed with the high caliber curriculum and faculty. I learned the value of developing professional relationships online and really enjoyed learning. I eventually started getting straight A's!"

Like many working adults, Doffing faced--and overcame--challenges that come with being a student. Doffing's involvement in local politics only added to the challenge. In the midst of a campaign for city council, Doffing began to worry about maintaining her grades. "I spoke with Dr. Peter West, Director of Education, who told me that I should not give up because I was on track to graduate summa cum laude. When I found out that means 'with highest honor,' I set a new goal for myself: attaining a 4.0 grade point average. That goal inspired and motivated me throughout the remainder of my time with Colorado Tech Online." After setting her goal, Doffing not only graduated from Colorado Tech Online summa cum laude, but also won her city council seat in a city of 23,000 by securing 70 percent of the vote in a hotly contested three-way race.

But it wasn't just her academic success that earned Doffing the Distinguished Alumnus Award. Doffing's active role in her community, her church and initiative in her job truly distinguished her from other applicants. Doffing is employed by GoldenCare USA, a leader in the long-term care insurance industry, where she was hired immediately after graduating through Colorado Tech Online. At GoldenCare USA, Doffing initiated a new sales process using the Internet, email and telephone to develop long-distance sales relationships. Doffing credits her ability to develop and initiate the strategy to her educational experience at Colorado Tech Online.

"The knowledge and skills I have gained have helped me become successful in many areas, including helping me to be a better advocate for the citizens of my community," said Doffing. "My education at Colorado Tech Online has changed my life and I just want to express how thankful I am for that."

As a distinguished alumnus, Doffing toured the facilities that support Colorado Tech Online, had dinner with Dr. Wallace Pond, the Chancellor of Colorado Tech Online, and met faculty and staff. "The high point of the award ceremony for me was having the opportunity to personally thank some of those who helped inspire me to get where I am today," said Doffing. "And I could not believe the magnitude of technology at Colorado Tech Online. The facility is huge, and the data center is astonishing! It is an extremely large, state-of-the art network. The tour really enlightened me to the future of education and to the explosive growth of online education."

Doffing's experience as a distinguished alumnus may also have given her some ideas for her own future. "I am looking into continuing on to earn a Master's degree and teach courses through Colorado Tech Online. I would like online learning to continue to be a part of my future."

Newly Available To Medical Device Manufacturers - Bluetooth Testing Equipment

Newly Available To Medical Device Manufacturers - Bluetooth Testing Equipment

Integration Made Simple

Torrance, CA (PRWEB) January 5, 2009

Facilitating the entry of Bluetooth (http://fte. com) into the medical device industry is the modern protocol analyzer, now updated to effortlessly examine not only the wireless interface between devices, such as a glucose monitor and a telephone modem, but also the interface between the device CPU and the Bluetooth chip inside the device. The advanced capabilities of today's protocol analyzer software help to overcome the fear associated with "cutting the umbilical cord" to traditionally hard-wired elements.

"By embedding Bluetooth technology into your product you gain access to an expanded market, one that I would argue is a very important market because of the exploding geriatric population and the increasing number of people with chronic diseases," says Pierre Landau, Ph. D., president of Tucson, Arizona-based Polymap Wireless.

There is no denying that Bluetooth reins as the technology of choice for connecting wireless devices. The need for wireless data recording and transmission reaches an almost "acute" level within the medical device industry. Until now, hesitation to jump on the bandwagon has usually stemmed from the well-founded concern that the is a complex technology with numerous protocols, profiles (use cases), and the automatic challenges that come from any wireless technology, but especially one where the connection and disconnection of devices is almost always ad hoc. So, too, is it an ever-evolving standard, with not only a rapidly growing number of profiles, but also constant

With over 40,000 units in use worldwide, spanning a wide variety of communication technologies, Charlottesville, Virginia-based Frontline Test Equipment, Inc. is a leading provider of PC-based protocol analyzers (http://fte. com) for special-purpose data communication networks. For example, Frontline's FTS4BT™ supports the new IEEE P11073-20601 Draft Standard for Health Informatics, Personal Health Device communication application profile and includes the Multi-Channel Adaptation Protocol.

During the sending and receiving of information, any number of quality issues can arise including dropped connections, data corruption or loss, interference, slow throughput, and signal degradation, all of which can ultimately affect the end user's experience with the product in a negative manner.

Up until recently, Bluetooth protocol analyzers could only operate by way of an "air sniffer (http://fte. com)" for the wireless link between devices, or by way of a "HCI sniffer" (Host Controller Interface) the wired connection between the CPU and the chip inside the device. While examining each link individually provides valuable information, it does not go far enough. Frontline's fully-featured protocol analyzers can air sniff and HCI sniff both sides of the chip simultaneously, greatly enhancing the debugging and verification process, providing what is known as "virtual sniffing" where the analyzer does not physically tap the link. Virtual sniffing is an alternative to traditional HCI sniffing.

The wireless revolution will continue, as both medical providers and patients recognize the value proposition of working without cables. Device manufacturers who wish to capitalize on this trend can help ensure success with the use of today's modern protocol analyzers.

The Bluetooth word mark and logos are owned by the Bluetooth SIG, Inc. FTS4BT is a trademark of Frontline Test Equipment, Inc.
