International Enrollments to English Narconon Rehab Steeply Increasing

International Enrollments to English Narconon Rehab Steeply Increasing

Even from beyond the British Commonwealth, more citizens from around the globe are applying to Narconon Hastings, seeking its unique methods to get clean from drugs and alcohol, say staff.

Hastings, England (PRWEB) May 23, 2008

Narconon Hastings on the southeast coast of England has persons enrolled currently from Morocco, Nigeria, South Africa, Maldives Islands, and India (not counting those from the British isles). Staff and students report this increasing international trend may be for two reasons -- Narconon's 75% long-term success rate for graduates and the lack of effective treatment in many other countries.

"Why our students apply to an English centre rather than to the 20 other countries where Narconon rehab may be found is because England is still on the crossroads of world communication lines," offers Alison Withie, senior intake counselor, herself English and a Narconon graduate. "When I did my programme," she adds, "there wasn't a centre in England, so I had to go to Holland, outside Amsterdam. But Narconon is Narconon, and they did well by me." Seems so, as Alison went on to join staff and later helped open first an out-patient centre in London and then in 2005 the prestigious Narconon Hastings.

The centre does look British, housed in a four story Tudor mansion (and former school) near the famous battlefield where William the Conqueror put down Norman roots in English soil. A few minutes walk from the English Channel, Narconon Hastings can deliver to 40 or more 'students.' "We call them 'students,'" says Alison, "because our programme is like going back to school, real school this time, where one learns the life skills not only necessary to get free from drugs and their insanity, but also vital for living a successful and happy life." The Narconon programme is based on the research and works of author and humanitarian, L. Ron Hubbard. It was founded by a heroin addict named William Benitez in Arizona State Prison in 1966, after he discovered Hubbard's raising-abilities approach to solving problems.

That Narconon is a drug-free model also attracts applicants. Graduate Michelle Davies says, "Before coming to Narconon, I was at a drug rehab facility for heroin addiction. Like almost everywhere else than here, I was given a substitute drug, methadone - which was not only unsuccessful in helping me, but contributed to the deterioration of my body." Looking well and healthy today, Michelle continues, "But Narconon is a drug free programme that uses vitamins, minerals, and sauna detoxification to remove drug residues from the body."

The sauna detox programme is done after the addict has withdrawn from drugs. After receiving okay from a medical doctor to do the exercise and sweating programme, the addict takes a regimen of vitamins and minerals daily and spends repeated periods sweating out toxins, along with plenty of cooling off and drinking fluids. Many studies have been done of the healthfulness and efficacy of this procedure to reduce the body burden of toxins well beyond drugs. Published papers on this procedure can be found at www. detoxacademy. org.

"Narconon cleans your body," says Michelle, "and mind, too. It is a life changing opportunity. Narconon changed my life. In fact, they saved it."

The Narconon programme averages between four and six months, staff report. Not a short time, but seemingly worth long distance travel considering the benefits. Persons wishing more information may email info@drugrehab. co. uk or call 44 1424 436 065.

SoothSoft Innovations Worldwide, Inc. Provides ‘Comfort’ For Co-Branding and Licensing

SoothSoft Innovations Worldwide, Inc. Provides ‘Comfort’ For Co-Branding and Licensing

We are very excited to announce that SoothSoft Innovations Worldwide, Inc. is now pursuing licensing and co-branding opportunities for its revolutionary SoothSoft® Comfort Technology featured in the popular Chillow® Brand Comfort Device and the Canine Cooler® Brand Pet Bed as well as in the CompuSooth® Brand Comforting Wrist Rest.

Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) June 8, 2005

SoothSoft Innovations Worldwide, Inc., (SIW) announced today that the company is pursuing licensing and co-branding opportunities for its revolutionary SoothSoft® Comfort Technology featured in the popular Chillow® Brand Comfort Device and the Canine Cooler® Brand Pet Bed as well as in the CompuSooth® Brand Comforting Wrist Rest. This technology offers a triad of amazing functions: powerless cooling, shock absorption and superlative body contour and support.

Soothsoft® Comfort Technology was first introduced by SIW (formerly Maverick Marketing Ventures, Inc.) when the company launched The Chillow® Brand Comfort Device to end restless nights of pillow flipping and searching for the elusive ‘cool spot.’ As the Chillow® became a staple for many “pillow flippers” they also found that it is an ideal comfort device for sunburns, feverish infants and children, migraine sufferers, menopausal women, and more. Shortly after the launch of the Chillow®, SIW applied the same Soothsoft® Comfort Technology in the Canine Cooler® Brand Pet Bed to keep man’s best friend cool and comfortable regardless of the weather outdoors, and in the CompuSooth® Brand Comforting Wrist Rest which reduces wrist joint and nerve strains caused by excessive computer usage.

Created by Kirk and Eric Stanley, president and vice president of SIW respectively, these products have offered a breakthrough method for keeping people and animals cool without power. SoothSoft® Comfort Technology uses non-toxic, soft, medical-grade materials and fluids in a unique way to achieve a cooling effect and fluid derived comfort. These cool, dry, cushioning products use no electricity and have created a revolution in personal comfort. The products incorporating this self-cooling technology are effective, environmentally friendly, easily portable, and require little or no maintenance. And unlike gel-based cooling products, SoothSoft® Comfort Technology doesn’t need continuous re-activation by freezing or refrigerating; and is never wet in any way.

“The successes and media support behind the Chillow ®and Canine Cooler® have been phenomenal,” said Eric Stanley, vice president of SoothSoft Innovations Worldwide, Inc. “There are countless opportunities for use of SoothSoft® Comfort Technology in the medical, sports, clothing, personal care, pet, and furniture industries. For example, we can make furniture that outlasts foam furniture, incorporates fluid comfort and concurrently cuts down the cost of office air conditioning usage; anti-fatigue mats for cashiers or hairdressers to stand on all day instead of the current rubber mat-type products; exercise and health club equipment that has better comfort than ordinary foams and is combined with a built-in cooling effect – what could be better for people working out? The licensing and branding possibilities are immense and we are eager to see it utilized in different applications. “

Products using SoothSoft Comfort Technology® are now being sold in hundreds of retail outlets such as Walgreen’s as well as in catalogs such as Herrington and Miles Kimball, and on web sites such as Drugstore. com and PetsMart. com. The Discovery Channel Store also recently entered into a co-branding agreement with SIW to market the Discovery Channel Store Chillow®. And in 2004, SIW opened a division in England and as expected, consumers across the pond have been enthusiastic.

SIW seeks partners in all major product categories where a passive cooling and cushioning technology would be beneficial. Please contact Eric Stanley at 719-226-2873 or Eric. Stanley@soothsoft. com.

Franklyn D Resort has upgraded training for their signature vacation nannies while other resorts report increased demand for private babysitters and concierge services. Branded education and enrichment programs add to bottom line. All winners reported enhancing traditional activities and supervised games with DVD libraries, classes and computer centers. The Grove enlarged their infant nursery while Beaches resorts let the youngest guests hang out with "Sesame Street" characters. Children's physical training demanded by fitness-minded parents. Leading ski resorts Taos, Smugglers Notch, and Jackson Hole now offer ski lessons to children starting at 2-years, snowboarding at 4, and teen snowsports camps for varying skill levels.

Hot Pepper Nasal Spray Combats Drowsy Driving For Fourth of July Travelers

Hot Pepper Nasal Spray Combats Drowsy Driving For Fourth of July Travelers

With Fourth of July fast approaching, record numbers of drivers are expected to be on the roads this weekend, and many of them will be fallng asleep at the wheel. Until recently, the only tools for combating "driver's fatigue" were caffeine, Red Bull and pulling over for a quick catnap, but this year tired drivers can add old fashioned hot peppers to the list.

(PRWEB) June 29, 2005

Over the past 18 months, Sinus Buster hot pepper nasal spray has built a remarkable reputation. ItÂ’s considered by thousands of sufferers to be an important breakthrough for relieving a variety of chronic sinus, allergy and headache conditions. This completely natural supplement has also been embraced by more than a thousand medical professionals as a safe alternative to both prescription and OTC nasal sprays. Now it seems this sizzling hot pepper nasal spray may also combat a condition known as Drowsy Driving.

A new study shows Sinus Buster hot pepper nasal spray to be effective against more than mere sinus problems. According to the study's findings, Sinus Buster may also be an effective natural alternative to caffeine based energy supplements.

The study conducted by the Immunity institute of Finland, showed Sinus Buster to be a highly effective and safe energy booster. Unlike traditional stimulants, Sinus BusterÂ’s active ingredient, Capsaicin (the active ingredient in hot peppers) does not artificially speed up the heart or raise blood pressure. In fact, Capsaicin in the form of hot peppers is highly recommended by cardiologists as an effective way to prevent blood clots and promote healthy blood flow.

Furthermore, Capsaicin stimulates the nervous system thus forcing the body to release natural endorphins which prduce a burst of energy and incredible mental alertness. When taken through intranasal means (nasal spray), this effect is instant and quite powerful. Most importantly, Sinus Buster does not contain any added stimulants and itÂ’s also safe for pregnant women.

Characterized as a “Sociobiological Research Experiment”, the Institute’s study was based on a group of 100 people. The volunteers ranged from age (23 – 85 years) with 56% being males and 44% females. The product was issued to people who had been diagnosed with the following conditions: migraine headaches, sinus infections, allergies and interestingly enough – lack of energy.

The volunteers were each given three bottles of Metered Dose Sinus Buster, and directed to use it as needed and on a regimented program three times daily. Although no clinical controls were in place, each participant was instructed to chronicle their usage over a two month period. Upon completion of the trial, all participants were given detailed surveys to fill out. Once the surveys were returned, staffers followed up with phone interviews to back up the volunteer’s conclusions. Over all, Sinus Buster boasted a 93% success rate when volunteers were asked “Did the product have any healing or recuperative effect on your well being?”

Even more importantly, Sinus Buster was also found to increase energy levels with 8 out of 10 subjects who each reported a lasting and “significant boost” without experiencing the side effects of chemical stimulants such as caffeine. In fact, 83% of the participants reported a notable increase of energy and alertness directly related to their Sinus Buster usage.

A whopping 80% of the volunteers also reported using Sinus Buster to effectively combat fatigue while driving. Oddly enough, 65% of the participants also reported that Sinus Buster helped them sleep better -- this is probably due to the fact that they were able to breathe easier as a result of the Capsaicin and Eucalyptus.

Drowsy driving is considered a major problem on American roadways accounting for more fatalities per accident than even drunk driving. Furthermore, half of all drivers admit to falling asleep at the wheel at least once. Now with Fourth of July weekend fast approaching, estimates predict record numbers of drivers on the road this year, and many opportunities to fall asleep at the wheel. Until recently, the only proven methods for fighting fatigue were caffeine pills, Red Bull and pulling over for a short catnap. Fortunately you now can add “Hot Pepper Nasal Spray” to that list too.

To find out more about Sinus Buster, the worldÂ’s first and only hot pepper nasal spray -- ask for it at a pharmacy or health food store near you. For a list of stores in your area, or to purchase Sinus Buster directly, visit the company website at (www. sinusbuster. com). Samples are available for verified media and medical personnel upon request.

This affordable easy-to-install screening system transforms your garage, carport or porch into usable space free from mosqitoes, flies and debris while allowing enjoyment of fresh air and sunlight.

(PRWEB) July 3, 2003

A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention expert, Dr. Lyle Petersen, said the disease's peak this year may not come for several weeks and could infect hundreds more people.


KittyMac Fresh Air Screens has a product that will eliminate your fear of those outdoor parties/cookouts.



Who wants to hang out on their bug-ridden porch or patio? Worse yet, who wants to be stuck inside after dusk every night? No one, according to Marvin F. Miller, SR, President of KittyMac Fresh Air Screens Inc. "Fresh Air Screens is an innovative garage door screening system. It is designed to turn your existing garage into a screened-in, shaded and bug-free living area allowing homeowners to enjoy fresh air and sunlight while minimizing the danger of being bitten by mosquitoes infected with West Nile Virus.

"It isn't just an annoyance to have mosquito bites anymore. With the spread of the West Nile virus, it can also be a serious health risk to people and their pets. With a Fresh Air Screen in place, energy costs are also reduced by minimizing the use of air conditioning and increasing cross-ventilation throughout the home,"

Fresh Air Screens are installed in minutes using the highest quality materials that include a simple hook and loop. The screens are made in the USA and are of the best materials available. They offer great visibility and light while providing the bug-barrier needed for even the smallest pests. Every Fresh Air Screen is double-stitched and has Double zippers to allow entry into the garage while the screen is in use. When not needed, the screen is simply rolled up and remains installed. The Fresh Air Screen's innovative design does not interfere with the garage door's function in any way, allowing the screen to remain in place for the duration of the season.

Fresh Air Screens are available in regular and custom garage-door sizes. Custom orders are also available for many other outdoor living uses such as gazebos, decks, barns, boats and trailers.

The Fresh Air screens have become invaluable to barn and horse owners to keep the overhead doors open without the worry of their animals being bitten by the West Nile Virus carrying mosquitoes.

Prices begin at $89.00 for a 6 by 7 foot screen. For more information: www. freshairscreens. com

Unicore Military Launches Service-Oriented Website

Unicore Military Launches Service-Oriented Website

Unicore Military recognized the vital need for providing a network where members of the military community and the public connect to match needs and resources. Their system encourages an ethos of 'What can I do for you?' through the use of tools which enable members to recognize and act upon opportunities to serve, be they employment, VA assistance, advise from mentors, or other matters of importance to military families and individuals. Unicore Military - "Where Real Opportunities are Created for the Entire Military Community"

Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) August 10, 2009

Unicore Military, a division of Unicore Health, Inc., has recently launched UnicoreMilitary. com, a service-oriented network interconnecting the military community and general public to actively support our nation's wounded warriors and all military members, including National Guard members, reservists, retirees, veterans, and their families.

Using transformational technology, Unicore Military connects users in unique ways. Unicore's Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Raj Pandya, MD, describes Unicore as a system that ''allows users to identify needs of members in the military community and, more importantly, identify ways they are able to meet those needs. Simply put, Unicore creates and enhances opportunities.''

Unicore's Chief Operating Officer, Steve Haynes, an Air Force veteran, describes a simple example of how the system works: ''Take an Army specialist soon after having survived a severe life-changing injury--not only is this soldier experiencing the trauma of the injury itself, but also the very real concerns of what the future will bring. ''If discharged from the Army, how will my family's needs be met? Where will I be able to find meaningful work?'' Now take a Marine corporal who sustained similar injuries, but is six months further down the road and has been through many of the difficult transitions the soldier will have to make. When these two connect on Unicore Military, the soldier is connected with a true mentor who has been through it all. Equally important, you provide that Marine with a means to give back.''

Transitioning out of the military can be difficult under the best of circumstances, but when an injury is added to the mix it becomes even more challenging. Joshua Galle, Unicore's Director of Military Services, is a service-disabled veteran who recently transitioned back into civilian life. ''The military has a wide variety of programs designed to address many of the transitioning military member's needs.'' he said. ''However, none of them provide the personal, hands-on approach provided by Unicore Military. Whether the need is a job, relocation advice, transportation assistance, or to get advice from a mentor, Unicore Military is the place to connect with others to meet those needs and to help others meet their needs.''

Unicore Military is supported by advertisers. All services to the military community are provided free of charge. With Unicore Military, you create a profile and enter your goals either to help or provide a service, to request help or a service, or both. Please register at Unicore Military website and begin reaching out today!

"Home Improvement

Refinancing * Second Mortgage

New Purchase * Special Loans"

Even if one of those emails is legitimate here are the facts your mortgage lender doesn't want you to know:

*After paying 15 years on your 30 year mortgage. Homeowners will still owe 90% of the amount they borrowed.

*After paying nearly 24 years, homeowners will still owe over 50%.

*Homeowners will pay over three times the amount they originally borrowed before paying off their mortgage.

*To make matters worse, the F. D.I. C. estimates that 1 out of every 2 mortgages are miscalculated overcharging homeowners $8 - $10 BILLION each and every year.

*On a conventional 30 year mortgage, the average homeowner will make over 120 unnecessary payments.

In this dissertation, I would like to show homeowners how to solve these problems absolutely free.

By changing their regular monthly payment schedule to a biweekly payment schedule homeowners can:

>Save thousands of dollars on their mortgages without increasing their payment.

>Shorten their 30 year mortgage by seven to 15 years without refinancing.

>Build equity in their home 300% faster.

>Turn their current mortgage into an investment program.

>Increase their net worth dramatically.

>Track their savings and audit their loans to find lender mistakes which occur about 50% of the time according to the F. D.I. C.

The following are quotes from periodicals which advocate the use of a biweekly schedule in paying a home mortgage:

Wall Street Journal - "A $70,000 mortgage at 10.5% annual interest produces savings of $60,000 when repaid on a bi-weekly schedule."

The New York Times - "Biweekly Mortgage: A Way to Build Equity. A biweekly mortgage is best... for anyone who wants faster equity buildup. The idea of biweekly mortgages is 'simplicity itself...' The result: a reduced term, substantial savings in interest and an acceleration of equity."

Parent - "The simple fact is that a biweekly mortgage schedule not only saves the homeowner a bundle, but makes him or her a homeowner much sooner

National council of Savings Institutions - "Bi-weekly payments are 'pro-consumer' because they correspond to America's paydays making mortgage payments much easier for homeowners who are on a tight budget or have a difficult time saving money."

Washington Post - "It Pays to Check Loans for Overcharges: Of 9,000 adjustable rate mortgages checked, errors were found in nearly half. Average refund owed to the homeowner: $1,588."

A reasonable question to ask is how does a homeowner switch to a biweekly payment schedule with:

No refinancing

No credit reports

No home appraisal

No closing costs

No change of lender

And no change to their current mortgage agreement at all?

Your first step is to get your hands on a proper mortgage calculator that will generate a personalized mortgage savings analysis based on your current mortgage data. Since you are probably on a computer already while reading this you should appreciate that you can have the software to project your savings right now in the privacy of your own home. http://united-states-mortgages. web-freebies. com (http://united-states-mortgages. web-freebies. com) provides the simplest access available to a mortgage calculator which compares your current monthly payments to a biweekly schedule - without pushing any lenders. (It's in a 913 kilobyte, free to download, executable file.)

Personally, I advocate freedom of choice when choosing anything - that includes software on the web. When I performed my own search for a mortgage calculator I was also looking for an all encompassing service that would also provide a biweekly mortgage management service with the greatest amount of freedom; that is it should be so unique that it provides all of the benefits which I mentioned above for free and at no obligation to homeowners to continue with the service. For me, a free, no obligation service which saves thousands of dollars is the true meaning of freedom; it promotes the American Way of Life. Free-Mortgage-Calculator. US offers a true example of freedom as the American Way, so it is listed at The Free Site (http://thefreesite. com/Family_Freebies/Misc_family_freebies/index. html (http://thefreesite. com/Family_Freebies/Misc_family_freebies/index. html)).

The Mortgage Manager™ at is a savings analysis calculator which generates a personalized, six page report; it compares a regular monthly mortgage payment to a biweekly schedule for any particular homeowner. Anyone can download this program at http://united-states-mortgages. web-freebies. com (http://united-states-mortgages. web-freebies. com); it is simple to use and understand, so even a child could do it. The mortgage management service which it offers is optional, yet available only to homeowners in the United States and applies only to real estate owned in the United States mainland. As a United States Citizen and a homeowner you are privileged to partake of this unique service. Of course, in order to advocate true freedom this service must remain an option, but, first, let us consider the facts.

Homeowners could go to another biweekly mortgage management service which might provide exactly the same service, but they will quickly discover that other management companies charge a fee any where between $395 to $1000. Although other biweekly services also help save thousands of dollars on mortgage payments, how many homeowners can take this unnecessary, up-front blow to their pocket books - especially during this difficult economy?

Could homeowners do a biweekly payment schedule by themselves? Almost. A homeowner can pay off his mortgage early and save money by increasing his monthly payment and making additional principle payments, but human nature is against us. Statistics show 97% of people who try to do this fail to do it consistently and never save any substantial money. Those aren`t good odds to gamble with on what will most likely be the biggest investment in a homeowner's life. Plus, when we start making these increased monthly payments, that`s where a lot of the mistakes indicated by the F. D.I. C. occur. The 3% of America who have the self discipline, and resources, to make increased monthly payments have a 50/50 chance of losing a lot of their savings due to errors in loan amortization, interest compounding, index and margin calculations, etc. That's what those lenders in the examples above are looking for; "3.75% over 30 years" seems miniscule now, but every little mistake adds up in THE LENDERS favor over the long run.

That is where this unique mortgage management service in the United States can help. This free service includes AUDITING your mortgage to track your savings and catch possible lender mistakes. To have an outside company audit your mortgage can cost $100 to $150 per year and is critical since the F. D.I. C. estimates errors occur in nearly every other mortgage with the average mistake costing the homeowner over $1,500.00. Next are two excepts from articles that emphasize the seriousness of this fact:

ATTORNEY GENERAL OF NEW YORK - After ordering the nation`s largest mortgage lender to refund $150 Million dollars in over-charges; "We dug deeper and deeper and found that this system of overcharging is virtually universal. It runs across the entire mortgage lending industry..."

THE HERALD, "Lender holds principle payments - About four months ago, my wife and I decided to start making extra payments on our mortgage. We were shocked when we realized the lender held these checks more than 60 days before applying them to our loan..."

The next logical questions should be: Exactly, who has this unique service available only to United States Citizens? Can they be trusted? This biweekly, no cost, no obligation mortgage management service is provided by Information Brokerage systems (IBS) out of Lenexa, Kansas. Information Brokerage Systems has been in business providing biweekly mortgage service since 1989. In 1995, they developed the The Mortgage Manager™ software program making it possible to provide the biweekly service at no cost to the homeowner. Their Lenexa business license number is 10011767. Their Dun & Bradstreet number is 79-922-3433. They are also members of several business organizations in Kansas including the Shawnee Chamber of Commerce. All of this information can be verified as opposed to the blind emails coming from all those "mortgage lenders."

The Mortgage Management Division of I. B.S. is headed by Executive Vice President Michael Edgecomb who has received national honors for his work with homeowners just like yourself. These honors include being featured in “Who`s Who Among Outstanding Americans”, “International Leaders In Achievement” and the 1996 edition of “500 Leaders Of Influence” which is on permanent display at the U. S. Library of Congress in Washington, D. C.

The International Biographical Institute has awarded him “Man Of the Year” for 1995 - 96 for his development and production of this software - the Mortgage Manager™ (worth $395). This software program has helped thousands of homeowners save $50,000 to $150,000 and more, eliminate years of mortgage payments, and avoid costly lender miscalculations.

Certified trained mortgage reduction experts are managing home mortgages right now with this service. They are just a phone call away to answer any questions. Their phone number is also located at http://united-states-mortgages. web-freebies. com (http://united-states-mortgages. web-freebies. com) at the frequently asked questions page.

The next most logical question should be: How is a homeowner's mortgage payment protected through IBS services? We all work hard for our money and we want assurance that its fully protected. We hear in the news everyday stories of `fly-by-night` companies, embezzlement of huge amounts of money, etc. With the biweekly mortgage service by IBS, your funds are fully protected, insured, and are at no risk whatsoever.

All biweekly mortgage service is done electronically and governed by Regulation `E` of the Federal Reserve System. Regulation `E` is a consumer protection law which regulates the transfer of your funds. In its simplest form, Regulation `E` states; `An account holder has 120 days to contact their bank to reverse any unauthorized electronic debit to their account.` This can be verified at your local bank or Federal Reserve location.

Your biweekly mortgage payments are protected by various safe guards to eliminate such illegal activities such as embezzlement. Any fund transfer over $1,000 has to be approved by an officer of the company and NO fund transfer can exceed the maximum amount of any single mortgage we service. Every employee of the company is covered under a self-insured `employee dishonesty bond` thus protecting every one of your mortgage payments up to $10,000.00. The free Mortgage Manager™ software also allows you to track and audit your mortgage payoff and savings every step of the way by using a special code number that is sent to the home owner from IBS after a minimum of six months on the service.

Using the Mortgage Manager™, even on a trial basis, commits homeowners in no way. The service by IBS is free, so trying it costs nothing. If a homeowner is unhappy, he can cancel at any time without any obligation whatsoever.

The next most logical question should be this aspect of freedom to homeowners; it seems too good to be true, so there must be a catch. Let's face it: As homeowners we have heard of this biweekly service before, but it was never free. How can IBS provide so much at no cost? The Mortgage Manager™ competes with over 600 banks and other private companies who offer biweekly mortgage service. They ALL charge a fee ranging from $395.00 to over $1,000.00. IBS could easily do the same, but homeowners who are just getting by (and who need this service the most) have a hard time paying a few hundred dollars even when its going to save them thousands of dollars.

When IBS developed the Mortgage Manager, they searched for a way to eliminate this cost while providing the service free to the homeowner. VOLUME is how they are able to still generate revenues without charging the homeowner. The Mortgage Manager™ is the most popular and efficient mortgage reduction system in use today. IBS is paid interest in exchange for managing millions of dollars in biweekly mortgage service. Every company has to generate revenue in order to service their customers and stay in business, however, earnings to IBS don`t come out of the pockets of American Citizens like they do with their competitors. They are the only company in America who offers the biweekly mortgage service for FREE to homeowners.

Homeowners will notice a small banking service fee to process their electronic transfers. This is something that Information Brokerage Systems has no control over and does not profit from. This fee can be compared to `free` cellular phone calls on evenings and weekends. You still pay 3 to 5 cents per minute which pay for taxes and other things the phone companies have no control over. This fee exists with all biweekly mortgage service, even other management companies that charge homeowners over $1,000.00 up-front for the service. Homeowners already pay this small fee (plus a whole lot more) each and every month to their lenders.

Are you a homeowner who has no idea how to start biweekly payments? For argument's sake let's say you contacted your mortgage lender and they said they would not accept electronic, biweekly payments. "How is it done?" A homeowner's mortgage doesn`t actually change to a biweekly mortgage because that would require refinancing (which involves new appraisals, surveys, inspections, lives verification, financial statements, etc.) and a cost of several thousand dollars. Rather than the homeowner budgeting a full payment once per month, they`ll budget a half payment every two weeks. IBS can restructure a mortgage onto a biweekly `schedule` through electronic transfers to give homeowners the same savings and benefits of paying a mortgage biweekly without the cost of refinancing or changing their existing mortgage agreement with their lenders. This reduces a homeowner's loan amount much quicker than a `monthly schedule` and builds his home equity 300% faster.

Funds are forwarded in the form of a check which is verified each month. This creates no problems with lenders and also provides a paper trail which can be used in case of a lender miscalculation.

Let's say that a homeowner is on a tight budget, always paying his bills at the last possible minute. Could a homeowner still experience the savings from a biweekly schedule? This same homeowner will find that `biweekly` payments are much easier to budget than `monthly payments.` It might take a little getting used to at first. The benefits and savings that homeowners on a tight budget enjoy are probably worth it.

The National Council of Savings Institutions says "biweekly payments are `pro-consumer` because they equal the paycheck flow." Since biweekly payments correspond to America`s paydays, it makes mortgage payments much easier for homeowners who are on a tight budget or have a difficult time saving money.

The most important question raised here could be the effect on taxes: What effect will a biweekly mortgage management service have on a homeowner's ability to deduct interest payments on taxes? Many people are led to believe it`s bad to pay off their home mortgage early because they will lose the tax write-off. This could not be further from the truth. In reality, it gives homeowners added income.

Most Americans sell their homes after about 7 years. They can make monthly mortgage payments for 7 years and still not have enough equity in their homes to pay a realtor to sell it.

By tripling the accumulation of home equity, homeowners will have additional money at their disposal to pay for Education, Vacations, a new Car or Boat, Retirement, etc. Homeowners will be able to deduct these interest payments where they normally would not be able to if they took out a separate loan for such items.

Homeowners also have the ability to dramatically upgrade the quality of the homes they live in by building equity 300% faster and transferring this extra equity into a more expensive home, if they desire.

What it boils down to is practicing freedom in the "Land of the Free." The problem is that most people don't know how to practice real freedom and mistake it for 'freedom from responsibility.' This has resulted in ignominious businessmen ripping off The People and careless corporate executives despoiling and polluting the land for personal gain. Real freedom begins at home with the citizen practicing democracy through the great American Dream. Owning a debt-free home in the safety and sanctity of a free land with peace of mind is a civil right only in the United States of America. This includes economic safety and sanctity. If you're a homeowner, this begins with your mortgage.

It's time to take advantage of your rights.

Defense Spending Rises 44 Percent, Surpassing 300 Billion, While 14 Homeless Die from Dehydration in US

Defense Spending Rises 44 Percent, Surpassing 300 Billion, While 14 Homeless Die from Dehydration in US

While fourteen homeless people died nationwide from dehydration in the summer, and nationwide defense spending rose 44 percent, Bret Bocook and his team at the proposed Angels Camp Homeless Shelter in Washington, DC are raising awareness and funds for homelessness through pixel advertising and other innovative programs at www. AngelsCampOnline. com

Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 14, 2006

While fourteen homeless people died nationwide from dehydration in the summer, and nationwide defense spending rose 44 percent, Bret Bocook and his team at the Angels Camp, a proposed Homeless Shelter in Washington, DC are raising awareness and funds for homelessness through pixel advertising and other innovative programs at www. AngelsCampOnline. com

According to the National Low-Income Housing Coalition Budget Process Presentation (February, 2006), defense, homeland security and international affairs account for 72 percent of federal spending from 2001 to 2005, which reflects a 9.5 percent growth rate. Alternatively, between 2001 and 2005, the average growth rate for domestic discretionary programs was only 1.9 percent, a figure that fails to keep up with inflation. Additionally, the President's 2007 budget proposal increases defense spending by 6 percent while eliminating 141 programs totaling $15 billion in cuts.

Over 300billion dollars of hard earned tax payer dollars has already been spent in Iraq so far.

Even more concerning is the projected total cost of the war totaling over “A Trillion Dollars” based on what a recent study by Nobel Prize winning economist at Columbia University, and Linda Bilmes at Harvard, estimate the “true costs” of the war that includes direct and indirect cost the US will have to shoulder for years.

Bret Bocook, a successful real estate developer and attorney, has a breakthrough design for a state of the art homeless shelter in Washington, DC that is an environementally and economically sustainable solution which will also be reproduced in other cities nationwide. Bocook has fully developed the concept and plans for AngelsCamp and is working on getting the funds to operate this 15 acre, $40 million dollar homeless comprehensive care facility. With so many federal cutbacks, Bocook's business expertise has been essential in developing ideas to raise the money needed to make AngelsCamp a reality.

AngelsCamp will address mental illness, drug abuse and alcoholism while teaching living skills and personal financial management. By running small businesses in the facility, such, such as a commercial printing shop and car wash, (see plan full site plan at angelscampomnline. com)the homeless will be able to earn money as they learn important business skills. A portion of this money will be put aside so that the resident can pay for housing upon completion of the program. The AngelsCamp shelter will also provide much-needed, modern medical and dental facilities to address the health issues facing the homeless due to weather exposure and neglect.

Housing needs are equally important in the summer as in the winter to protect the needy against the elements. In 2005, two homeless people froze to death in Washington, DC alone – an unnecessary condition that can be prevented by procuring additional funds to assist the homeless now.

Bocook states that, “I find it appalling, as I am sure you do as well, that here in the nations capital, the wealthiest nation on earth, 9 people have frozen to death on the streets of DC in just the last several years; and that there over 14,000 homeless people in the DC region, many of them children on the street on any given night. Many more people have died across the country due to exposure to elements, and other problems associated with Homelessness.”

Exposure to the elements can cause hypothermia or dehydration which can result in death if left untreated. Raising funds is necessary to create the AngelsCamp facility, which will sleep 500 people per night, as well as provide medical attention, counseling, schooling for children and business education and opportunities for adults.

Bret Bocook and his team are obtaining the necessary funds by selling pixel ads on their website (www. AngelsCampPixelads. com). The online pixel ads will be placed over a background of the architectural plans for the proposed Angels Camp site in Washington, DC. The ads can be purchased in square blocks known as “pixels” that show the logo of the purchaser along with a link to their website. The concept combined with the ads are causng the web site to be swamped with 1000’s of visitors a day, and that is expected to grow even further giving the ad buyers tremendous exposure and a tax write off as well.

Bocook stated, “When I heard about the Million Dollar Homepage and the idea of pixel advertising, I knew it was a perfect fit for Angels Camp.” He adds, “...pixel donors will not only receive a tax write equal to their contribution, but the donor will also receive a substantial marketing platform on the web to drive potential clients to the donors web site, and illustrate that the company being featured on the pixel advertisement is a consciousness and contributing corporate citizen.”

Angels Camp is also raising funds by accepting donations of cash, used cars or real estate, all of which are 100 percent tax deductible which can be doanted at angelscamponline. com as well..

One of the most impressive features about Angels Camp, according to Bocook, is that once the facilities are in place, much of the the operating costs are covered by the shelter's businesses which also act as job training for the residents. He states, “That's part of why Angels Camp is such a great investment for our country.”

The first Angels Camp facilities will be located in Washington, DC and Sacramento/Bay Area, CA and are to be completed by 2008. The facilities themselves shall be run as non-profits. Once the facilities are established, they will be self-sustaining and serve as models for additional facilities across the nation that will house and assist countless homeless people.

CRA Qualified Investment Fund Supports Environmentally-Sound Homeownership in Wyoming: HOME Run Program Finances Mortgages For First-Time Homebuyers, Promotes Compliance With National Energy Standards

Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) September 8, 2005

Everyday people are faced with the only consistency in life -- change. The problem is not that things are changing, but how people are responding to change. People often perceive change as a threat. Yet, our basic survival in life and in business is determined by how well we adapt to and address change. Many authors have written on the subject of change, but that's only the tip of the iceberg. Kevin Ross in his new book, TOUGH Talk for Living the Designer Life, uses change as the springboard to introduce his readers to his 5 point system for facing tough times with tough talk. T. O.U. G.H. is an acronym that gives time-tested wisdom for personal and business achievement.

"If a person can remember this simple acronym that spells T. O.U. G.H., when pressed by life's most daunting challenges, she can get through it stronger, richer, and clearer," says Ross in a recent interview.

This book was inspired by and written for my coaching clients and those who are ready for a coach who won't pull any punches and tell it like it is. Yet, it empowers you with the tools you need to have a TOUGH talk about money, in business, at work, in your relationships, on health, and even with God.

"Our world is facing the toughest times that we've ever seen. Never in history have we been so challenged as a human household. I am committed to teaching people a system we can use to rebuild our collective confidence, raise our collective consciousness, and win in the face of life's most challenging hurdles. When we learn to own our power, breakthrough our excuses, and take 100% responsibility for our lives, there can be no victims only volunteers ", says Ross."

A Chicago native, author of three books, international inspirational speaker, mentor, minister, coach, and creator of the Designer Life System, Kevin Ross is on a mission to inspire and empower millions of people to design and live the lives of their dreams. He has been the feature of news articles, television and radio shows, and has won numerous awards, and is respected by celebrities and non celebrities alike. He currently resides in Miami, FL.

Kevin Ross is currently accepting speaking invitations for his upcoming TOUGH TALK Designer Life Empowerment Tour. To check to see if Kevin will be touring in your city, or to have him come to address your group on his TOUGH talk system, call us at the Designer Life Institute at 954-436-4212.

Vernier Networks Locks Down Security at the Network Edge with New EdgeWall Security Appliance

Vernier Networks Locks Down Security at the Network Edge with New EdgeWall Security Appliance

Vernier Networks® today announced the EdgeWall line of security appliances, the industry’s only clientless network access management solution. Vernier's EdgeWall appliance allows organizations to screen devices and users, restrict network access to only authorized resources, inspect traffic once the user is on the network for worms, viruses or unusual behavior, and enforce remediation policies at the edge of the network – without disrupting network performance.

Deployed at the network edge, EdgeWall is a clientless solution that offers a new level of defense against desktop and wireless device intrusions. EdgeWall's comprehensive access management takes over where firewalls leave off, empowering corporations with the fine-grain control needed to ensure that devices allowed access to the network are healthy and users are only allowed to access authorized resources.

"After evaluating the Vernier Networks EdgeWall, we agree with their approach to access management, as it doesn't require us to modify software on the desktop," said Victor Mendez, director of computing services, University of California, Los Angeles School of Public Affairs. "EdgeWall offers us the solution to prevent vulnerable desktops from entering the network without having to rely on end-users. It provides control at a place we can enforce it -- in the network."

Enforcement at the Network Edge: Stopping the "Blame Microsoft Windows" game

Desktop security enforcement has proven insufficient as network intrusions and attacks increase. While it's true firewalls protect against external intruders, they don't address internal threats from those actually allowed to access the network. Enterprises need to protect themselves against these threats, as well as information leakage from within network. With Microsoft Windows a primary target for viruses, worms and other exploits, the network edge is the optimal point to prevent and mitigate threats, as well as unauthorized intrusions to the network.

"It may be fashionable to blame Microsoft Windows for vulnerable software, but the reality is the network is where enforcement needs to occur. It is time for the networking industry to share the security burden and offer the proper safeguarding for the defenseless desktop," said Simon Khalaf, president and CEO of Vernier Networks. "Our EdgeWall appliances offer the most advanced network-based security and access management and require no modifications to desktop software or network infrastructure".

Comprehensive Network Access Management - In a Box

"To fend off today's complex internal threats, enterprises must deploy a network access control architecture that covers managed and unmanaged devices and the entire scope of access solutions -- LANs, wireless LANs, virtual private networks, and dial-in via remote access servers," said Lawrence Orans, Principal Analyst at Gartner. "The ideal location to control access is at the edge of the network infrastructure. Network access control should leverage a companyÂ’s security configuration management, identification and access management, and remediation policies and technologies."

Key features of Vernier's EdgeWall appliance include:

1. Endpoint Screening - EdgeWall authenticates end-users and scans their devices for vulnerabilities upon admission to the network and block them from introducing worms and viruses to the network -- without requiring software on the desktop. Vernier Networks built-in vulnerability scanner supports more 3,000 signatures for known vulnerabilities and is fully compliant with NessusÂ’ NASL format. Signatures are available through subscriptions to Vernier Threat Labs.

2. Network Access Restriction - Based on the result of the screening process, EdgeWall restricts access to network resources through granular access control. Guest users are restricted from accessing sensitive corporate resources. Vulnerable and worm-infected devices are blocked until they go through proper remediation.

3. Traffic Inspection - Once admitted to the network, users and their devices are still monitored by the EdgeWall appliance. EdgeWall inspects network traffic generated by these endpoints for worms, viruses or unusual behavior, using both packet inspection and behavioral analysis. Inspection is selectively applied to traffic based on corporate defined policies and automatic action is taken upon detection of suspicious activity.

4. Remediation Policy Enforcement - Finally, EdgeWall enforces remediation policies for users and their devices if they abuse network usage rights, if they have non-compliant software or failed to deploy the latest software patches, or if their devices were infected by worms and viruses. EdgeWall supports a rich set of remediation policies including blocking, quarantining, or patch deployment through integration with PatchLink UPDATE patch management solution.

Vernier Networks EdgeWall appliances are centrally managed using VernierÂ’s Control Server, which dynamically generates security policies based on a user identity, location, patch-levels, vulnerabilities and overall threat levels. EdgeWall appliances also fit transparently within a network's switching fabric and existing VLAN and ACL configurations and dynamically enforce security policies without modifying VLANs and ACLs. This significantly reduces the overall management costs while guaranteeing the most granular level of security

Support for Microsoft Network Access Protection (NAP)

EdgeWall appliances will be integrated with Microsoft's extensible, standards-based secure access solution and will be deployed by hundreds of enterprises around the world, to assure that only clean devices and authorized users are allowed on the network.

"IT staffs have told us that they want a security infrastructure that allows them to monitor and control device access to corporate networks and if desired can update non-compliant computers prior to admittance," said Steve Anderson, director in the Windows Server Group at Microsoft Corp. "EdgeWallÂ’s support for Microsoft Network Access Protection will help customers lower the cost of access management and complexity while simultaneously providing them with more granular control over who gets on the network and when."

Vernier offers four EdgeWall models that are available immediately from the company directly or an authorized reseller: EdgeWall 7030, EdgeWall 7060, EdgeWall 7100 and EdgeWall Express. EdgeWall pricing starts at $9,000 USD. Customers who purchase EdgeWall appliances will receive a one-year free subscription for Vernier Threat Labs services.

Viscira™ Earns Industry Praise for Next-Generation 3D Animation Production

Viscira™ Earns Industry Praise for Next-Generation 3D Animation Production

Company advances medical animation with its innovative, feature-film effects

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 23, 2010

3D animation has progressed significantly - from the hand-drawn techniques used in the 1940 production of Pinocchio to the groundbreaking technologies used to create the 2009 science fiction epic film, Avatar. While many are familiar with the use of animation by the motion picture industry, most are not as aware of its potential within the medical environment.

Viscira, a leading provider of interactive and new-media solutions for the life sciences industry, is capitalizing on this opportunity by offering deep and broad experience in 3D disease state and mechanism of action (MOA) animation development. Viscira is raising the bar for animation productions having recently received industry praise for an animation video it featured at the 2009 American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Meeting.

Brad Peebler, CEO of Luxology, the software developer for the featured animation, commented on Viscira’s delivery at ASCO. “We are impressed with the quality and sophistication of animation that Viscira is able to deliver. It’s great to see some of the unique effects that are typically reserved for feature-film production incorporated into a medical video.”

While Viscira’s cinematic animations engage and entertain viewers, they also educate through a medically-sophisticated, storytelling approach that strives for scientific accuracy even at a cellular or molecular level. When appropriate, Viscira’s animations can provide viewers with a photo-realistic visual experience that might resemble the perspective of looking through a microscope.

According to Hagop (Kane) Kaneboughazian, Viscira’s Director of Animation, success depends on blending creative design with science. “We start with primary research on a disease state and product, key message definition and script development. It’s critical to understand the science first to make sure that the visual components are not only aesthetically impactful, but also technically correct.”

Viscira produces stunning 3D animations that can be customized for healthcare professionals, as well as patients. The company’s animation team brings together multiple functions including medical writers, storyboard artists and motion graphics developers. Viscira’s technical animation development suite integrates some of the same software programs and tools being utilized by companies such as Pixar and Lucasfilm, in addition to in-house applications.

Viscira’s next-generation 3D animations are just one of many interactive and new-media solutions the company offers, which range from web-based interactive slide kit builder platforms to enhanced video presentation modules to virtual-reality tradeshow programs. Viscira’s strategic approach combined with its delivery of cutting-edge products has resulted in an impressive roster of clients for the company including Amgen, Johnson & Johnson, Genentech, Pfizer and Novartis.

About Viscira™

Viscira is dedicated to the development of new-media communication solutions and interactive software applications for the life sciences industry.

Wallets2wear Now Available for Men

Wallets2wear Now Available for Men

Innovative Men's Wallets Combine Ease and Comfort

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2010

Rogiu, LLC today unveiled a men's line of wallets2wear, the revolutionary new line of wearable wallets. These innovative wallets (http://www. wallets2wear. com/mens) are small enough to be worn on the wrist, but large enough to carry a man's credit card, ID, cash and key. They are convenient, clever and comfortable.

Avoiding a bulge in the back pocket is not only an issue of comfort and looks in situations like nightclubbing or attending concerts and festivals, but it is safer against pickpockets and even good for one's health. "Regularly sitting on a wallet in one's back pocket can cause the sciatic nerve to get pinched," states Dr. Evaleen Jones (http://med. stanford. edu/profiles/Evaleen_Jones/), Associate Clinical Professor at Stanford University School of Medicine, "and wallets2wear offer a very sensible alternative."

In addition to the health issue posed by wearing a traditional wallet in the back pocket, there are numerous occasions where a wallet alternative is highly advantageous. Athletic men will be the first to admit that there are few places in athletic clothing to even place a locker key. "Paring-down your wallet to a key and ID and wearing it on your wrist is great for workouts: it keeps you light, it frees your mind from worrying about an uncomfortable place you put a key, and it allows you to focus on your fitness routine instead," Jim White, President and Founder of Jim White Fitness & Nutrition Studios (http://www. jimwhitefit. com/).

Rogiu's patent-pending wallets2wear designs offer men both freedom and style. They are available in sporty sweatband models as well as Velcro™-closing models that have the chic look of a wrist-bandana. Rogiu plans to release watch models soon as well.

WHERE TO BUY: Available exclusively at www. wallets2wear. com/mens (http://www. wallets2wear. com/mens)

About Rogiu, LLC

Rogiu, LLC is an innovator in wrist-worn accessories.
