Air pollution still causing health problems in Europe

Air pollution still causing health problems in Europe

GreenFacts releases World Health Organization findings that show improvements and continued cause for concern.

(PRWEB) September 9, 2005

Air quality has improved in most European countries over the last few decades. Yet, even at current levels, air pollution may aggravate respiratory diseases, shorten life expectancy by up to several months, and possibly increase infant mortality in highly polluted areas.

In October 2005 the World Health Organization (WHO) will reconsider current air quality guidelines. Does the latest research warrant new standards to better protect our health? To answer this key question, WHO experts closely examined three air pollutants that are known to be harmful: particulate matter, nitrogen dioxide, and ozone.

GreenFacts now provides non specialists with easy access to these recent scientific findings at www. greenfacts. org/air-pollution/ (http://www. greenfacts. org/air-pollution/), in a reader-friendly structure.

Particulate matter: small is harmful

Air can be contaminated by a range of very different particles such as dust, pollen, soot, smoke, and liquid droplets. Many of them can harm our health, especially smaller particles that may enter deeper into the lungs. Particularly vulnerable people, such as children or asthmatics, may be affected even at very low levels. MoreÂ

Nitrogen dioxide: mainly traffic related

In Europe, nitrogen dioxide (NO2) pollutes the air mainly as a result of road traffic and energy production. People living near busy roads are thus particularly affected. Apart from giving rise to acid rain and other air pollutants, current levels of NO2 can increase respiratory problems, particularly in children. MoreÂ

Ground level ozone: the effect of the sun

Unlike the ozone layer which shields us from UV rays, ground level ozone is considered an air pollutant. It becomes particularly prevalent on sunny summer days when other pollutants react under the action of sunlight. Exposure to ozone mainly affects the lungs, but it can also affect the eyes, and worsen respiratory allergies. MoreÂ

The combined effects of different urban air pollutants remain uncertain. However, recent research regarding human health impacts of particulates, ozone and nitrogen oxide suggests a need to further reduce pollution levels in EuropeÂ’s atmosphere.

Cuban Biotechnology: A CDIÂ’s first-hand report

Cuban Biotechnology: A CDIÂ’s first-hand report

A report from the Center for Defense Information (CDI) gives enough insights to arrive to a rational conclusion on the actual mission of the Cuban Biotechnology.

(PRWEB) July 31, 2003

Havana, July 29 - A report from the Center for Defense Information (CDI) gives enough insights to arrive to a rational conclusion on the actual mission of the Cuban Biotechnology. Five top-level experts from the CDI, International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), Harvard University (HU) and University of Maryland (UM) performed the research in the Western Havana Bio-Cluster. The team traveled to Havana in 2002 looking for evidences on the implication of major Cuban research institutions in activities different from improving human health and agriculture productivity. After visiting Cuban research institutions, taking photos and videos, talking with scientists and analyzing the information, experts concluded that there were neither evidences of research, development nor manufacture of devices to frighten the humankind.

Terence Taylor (IISS) concluded: “… it would be very unlikely that there is any work on biological weapons…” Gen. Charles Wilhelm’s (CDI) wrote: “… nothing that we saw or heard led us to the conclusion that they are proceeding on this path.” According to the report, Dr. John Steinbruner (UM), Lorena Barbería (HU) and The Hon. Philip Coyle III (CDI) arrived to similar conclusions from different reasoning. The report can be downloaded surfing at the web site http://gndp. cigb. edu. cu (http://gndp. cigb. edu. cu) or from the CDI’s web site.

It is Estimated that the UK Pharmaceutical Market Grew by 10.5% in 2004, to a Value of £12.32bn

It is Estimated that the UK Pharmaceutical Market Grew by 10.5% in 2004, to a Value of £12.32bn

Dublin (PRWEB) October 26, 2005

Research and Markets (http://www. researchandmarkets. com/reports/c26422 (http://www. researchandmarkets. com/reports/c26422)) has announced the addition of The Pharmaceuticals Industry Market Review 2005 to their offering.

It is estimated that the UK pharmaceutical market grew by 10.5% in 2004, to a value of £12.32bn. The UK market is ranked fifth in the developed world in terms of value, just above Italy but below France.

The market is composed of two major sectors: prescription-only medicines and over-the-counter (OTC) pharmaceuticals. Prescription-only medicines, the larger sector by far, are highly regulated and controlled. They are only available via a prescription from a qualified healthcare professional and can only be dispensed by a registered pharmacist operating on licensed premises. Pharmaceutical companies are not permitted to advertise these products directly to consumers, and there are strict rules on their promotion to healthcare professionals. Although pharmaceuticals are supplied to the private healthcare sector, the biggest customer by far in the UK is the NHS, which uses its immense buying power to negotiate regular discounts.

OTC pharmaceuticals are available to the public without a prescription and through a range of outlets, although some products can only be sold under the supervision of a pharmacist. The Government has been actively fostering the OTC market for a number of years and new areas are being opened up. However, it has been difficult for self-medication to achieve its full potential in a market where around half the population is exempt from prescription charges. In addition, the market has become increasingly price-sensitive following the entry of supermarkets and the abolition of Resale Price Maintenance (RPM). Annual growth can be significantly affected by product launches accompanied by sizeable advertising campaigns.

The trend towards consolidation in the industry is continuing unabated. Most of the global market leaders are the products of two or even three mega-mergers, and these companies are increasingly forming partnerships with biotechnology companies and research groups in order to enrich their product pipelines. However, there are fears that consolidation may affect the scope of research and development (R&D) activities and also that increasingly militant animal-rights activists will drive more companies abroad.

This report forecasts that the UK market for pharmaceuticals will continue to expand as the population ages, increasing the intrinsic demand for healthcare services. Growing competition and price-sensitivity will bolster the trend towards generic prescribing. However, sales of prescription-only medicines will continue to grow more rapidly than sales of OTC products.

New Book Release -- Attack Your Giants; Using King David's Perspective To Overcome Any Goliath You Face

New Book Release -- Attack Your Giants; Using King David's Perspective To Overcome Any Goliath You Face

King David of Israel faced Giants in his life, most notably a giant by the name of Goliath. At the time, Goliath threatened and intimidated the people of Israel, much like the financial, political, unemployment, layoffs, bailouts, health issues, corporate greed and mismanagement "Giants" seem to threaten and intimidate the lives and well being of many people today. The power is available to anyone who wants to develop giant slaying insight to win in the fight against the Giants that threatens the survival and growth of many families, businesses and communities today.

Germantown, MD (PRWEB) April 28, 2010

New book, Attack Your Giants, takes a reader through the mindset, motivation, methods and miracle David used to defeat his Giant and gain the victory for his family and nation.

These are unprecedented times many are living in, the likes of which few have ever seen before. Reports of record job layoffs, unemployment, foreclosures, bankruptcies, budget deficits and worldwide financial collapse seem to dominate the twenty four hour news feeds. Or perhaps a troubled marriage, divorce, strained family tensions, unruly children, an addiction, habit or vice have some operating at a fraction of what is possible. Regardless of what the challenge can be conquered and overcome. The key is having a strategy. Attack Your Giants gives many the strategy needed for victory.

In the study of business and the Bible, one thing that can be said with a certainty is; "There is nothing new under the sun," noted independent author Donnye D. Collins Sr. The major concerns human beings face today whether it's financial, political, and emotional or spiritual have been faced by someone at some point in the Bible, namely David, king of Israel. David figured out a way to overcome whatever the adversity was and went on to have tremendous success. Learning from these examples of leadership and insight can lead to great success and happiness in many areas of life.

The old tried and true adage still applies stated billionaire Warren Buffet; "To be a success at anything, find someone who has had success in at area and follow them." Modern day business tycoons such as Warren Buffet, Donald Trump and Bill Gates, all of whom found it beneficial and necessary to model and learn from the success of leaders they admired and respected for their accomplishments. In the quest to lead a successful family, business, church or civic organization and overcome the obstacles, challenges and pitfalls inherent in doing so, modeling someone skilled in the art of giant slaying like King David of Israel provides a great advantage? Get ready to win and win big!

East Unites with West in Global Cellular Recycling Effort

East Unites with West in Global Cellular Recycling Effort

What do Canada, China and the United States have in common? These three countries are major consumers of wireless phones and are adopting them at a rapid pace, resulting in millions of used and discarded cell phones.

(PRWEB) March 23, 2003

What do Canada, China and the United States have in common? These three countries are major consumers of wireless phones and are adopting them at a rapid pace, resulting in millions of used and discarded cell phones. Although each country has it own unique challenges to this cellular phenomena, The Wireless Source has a forward-thinking approach to the end-of-life management issues that closes the "reuse, reduce, recycle loop" in a coordinated and integrated manner. The recovery and reuse of cell phones is positive for the environment while introducing millions of people to wireless communications for the first time.

Challenging the wireless industry to create a solution for the increasing volume of globally stockpiled cell phones is a high priority for governments and environmental groups. There are currently more than 1 billion phones in use worldwide. Cell phones contain highly toxic chemicals that persist in the environment. By the year 2005, it is estimated that there will be 500 million stockpiled cell phones in the U. S. Cell phones are used for 18 months on average in the US. By contrast, the growth rate of cell phones in Canada is increasing sharply, and by 2005 there is a potential for 60 million stockpiled handsets. Ultimately, China expects to surpass the combined number of stockpiled cell phones of U. S. and Canada by 2005.

 The Wireless Source (TWS), headquartered in Bloomfield Hills, MI has long been aware of re-use opportunities. TWS was formed in 1995 and is a high quality re-manufacturer and re-marketer of new and refurbished cellular phones. TWS provides a market driven solution to the worldwide e-waste challenge that continues to growing in scope. TWS has developed service offerings focusing on reuse, which includes collection program management such as trade-in and take-back initiatives and partnering with OEM manufacturers, network operators and end users to implement them. Bob Sullivan, CEO of The Wireless Source states, " since our inception, we have re-deployed millions of used wireless phones extending their economic and functional life while potentially diverting them from landfills."

 The Wireless Source China established its office in Shanghai last year. Both government and private business heralded its presence. TWS China provides a new business model for the OEMs, network operators and the government that was previously non-existent. By the end of 2002, China mobile users reached 200 million. The rapid growth in cell phone usage raises many environmental and health concerns about the end-of-life management of discarded cell phones. "Today's cellular waste in China seems small, but has the potential to become a big issue quickly," says Gary Shen, General Manager of TWS China. "I am proud to be associated with an initiative to recover, reuse and recycle used wireless handsets and equipment. This business model will help recapture the value of unused products and bring communications to rural areas who are in great need," adds Shen.

 The Wireless Source Canada opened its doors earlier this year. "The business model of TWS will help meet our recycling responsibilities in North America and elsewhere in the world," states Gordon Weis, General Manager of TWS Canada.

 A new collection approach recently emerged, called Charitable Recycling. It focuses on harvesting used cell phones for the benefit of charities and other organizations. Charitable Recycling is a joint initiative between government and industry. "The blend of the private and non-profit segment has created an economically sustainable program," states Bob Sullivan. The program is in partnership with REAP2, an Oakland County, MI based national environmental initiative designed to create a process to collect electronic waste that can be reused or recycled. "Charitable Recycling is a vertical solution within our REAP2 program," states Marty Seaman, REAP2 Program Director.

Charitable Recycling and Charitable Recycling Canada offers consumers and businesses a mechanism for disposing of their used cell phones while preserving the environment and helping charities. "The response to the program has been overwhelming," says Rhonda Linton, Charitable Recycling Program Manager. "We are now partnered with national organizations and environmental programs including The National Wildlife Foundation and Waste Free NYC (New York City)," adds Linton.

Dr. David Minkoff Finds Protein Myths Linked to AmericaÂ’s Obesity

Dr. David Minkoff Finds Protein Myths Linked to AmericaÂ’s Obesity

Dr. David Minkoff, M. D., alternative healthcare expert specializing in protein nutrition, says that even as Americans consume record levels of protein, on high protein diets like the Atkins and South Beach, many are still protein deficient. On beef alone, a high-protein food, Americans will spend $70 billion this year, eating it 77.8 million times a day across America, according to the National Cattlemen's Beef Association. Yet Dr. David Minkoff says lab tests often show many people are protein deficient. "Standard blood panels may not indicate deficiency, but in deeper tests of the serum, we do find that many are deficient," says Dr. David Minkoff.

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) November 12, 2004

Why aren't people getting the protein they need from their diet? Dr. Minkoff says that as individuals enter middle age, they lose about half of the hydrochloric acid in their stomachs. This hydrochloric acid is necessary to activate the digestive enzymes, such as pepsin, that initiate protein breakdown. "If you can't digest the protein you eat," says Dr. Minkoff, "it doesn't matter how much protein you're eating — your body won't absorb it."

"Atkins type dieters overload their body with protein and high levels of nitrogen waste products. But many of these people don't adequately digest the protein, and if so, they may be deficient too," says Dr. Minkoff.

"Additionally, anyone on medications that block gastric acid production — for example, Nexium, Prilosec, Tagamet, Zantac, Pepsid — will also have faulty protein digestion."

Besides the difficulty of digesting protein, Dr. Minkoff says there is another fact many don't know about protein. Even if you do have adequate hydrochloric acid levels, your body can only use about 20 to 50 percent of the protein in the foods you consume. For example, even though fish, poultry, and meat are high in protein, the body can only make use of about 28 to 32 percent of this protein. The rest is converted to nitrogen waste. This is called net Nitrogen Utilization (NNU). For more information on NNU and to see the chart of comparisons to other proteins, go to http://www. bodyhealth. com/html/biobuilde/about_understanding2.asp#j9 (http://www. bodyhealth. com/html/biobuilde/about_understanding2.asp#j9)

"The high nitrogen waste that results from protein metabolism can be very hard on the bodies of certain individuals, particularly those with kidney problems," says Dr. Minkoff.

The National Kidney Foundation says 20 million Americans have kidney disease, and another 20 million have reduced kidney function and don't even know it. One study at Brigham and Women's Hospital found that when individuals with reduced kidney function engaged in high protein diets, their kidneys declined even further.

"As the kidneys are taxed with excessive nitrogen waste, it can leave people feeling tired, achy, sore, and groggy," says Dr. Minkoff.

For decades scientists have sought to find a more efficient protein, one that would be more fully absorbed and utilized by the body, and which would not produce any nitrogen waste. Dr. Minkoff believes he has finally found this protein with BioBuilde, a protein supplement with a unique amino acid profile. Several years ago Dr. Minkoff began a nutrition company, BodyHealth. com, to make this supplement available to the public.

"What's really amazing about BioBuilde," says Dr. Minkoff, "is that it produces only 1% nitrogen waste. Other amino acid formulas typically produce about 82% nitrogen waste. So this makes BioBuilde a truly revolutionary protein."

BioBuilde contains a unique patented formula of the eight essential amino acids in a special proportion to maximize protein synthesis. Ten tablets of BioBuilde produce less than half a calorie, and almost no nitrogen waste, yet yield the equivalent of 25 grams of high biological value protein.

Because of this, individuals with insufficient protein intake, who want optimum protein nutrition with almost no calories or nitrogen waste, are recommended to supplement their diet with BioBuilde. For more information on BioBuilde visit www. bodyhealth. com.

RemoteMDx, Through its SecureAlert Subsidiary, Expands With New State-of-the-Art Monitoring Center

RemoteMDx, Through its SecureAlert Subsidiary, Expands With New State-of-the-Art Monitoring Center

The new monitoring center will be able to service more than 100,000 customers worldwide.

SANDY, Utah (PRWEB) September 15, 2005

RemoteMDx, Inc. (OTC BB: RMDX), through its wholly owned subsidiary, SecureAlert, today announced the opening of its new state-of-the-art monitoring center.

SecureAlertÂ’s new monitoring center is located at 150 W. Civic Center Dr., Ste. 400 in Sandy across the street from Sandy City Hall, which is also the new location for SecureAlertÂ’s headquarters. The companyÂ’s headquarters were previously located in West Valley City, Utah, (where the company has had and will maintain a monitoring center).

SecureAlert specializes in monitoring individuals 24 hours per day 7 days per week through a process known as telematics. There are only a few telematics centers worldwide and the new SecureAlert center has incorporated the latest cutting edge proprietary technologies to make it one of the foremost in the world.

“The new monitoring center allows the company to incorporate newly developed patented and proprietary technologies to fill the demand of a growing market,” said Randy Olshen, president of SecureAlert. “The new facilities are perfectly suited for our growing needs. In addition to having improved security and emergency back-up that allows the center to function in the event of any emergency, it is equipped with digital technology that has automatic alerts and Web-based GIS (Geographical Information System) databases. The new PAL Monitoring Center™ will allow our PAL Operators™ to monitor individuals worldwide and support our customers even more effectively than before.”

The newly built PAL Monitoring Center will allow PAL Operators to monitor and track the locations of those using or wearing either MobilePAL™ or TrackerPAL™ devices with its state-of-the-art Global Positioning System (GPS) technology and its powerful GIS database. Additionally, there is a back-up Monitoring Center 20 miles from the new main center in Sandy that provides SecureAlert with built-in redundancy, enabling it to provide public safety and personal assistance around the clock to its customers.

“The demand for the proprietary technology we use in our MobilePAL and TrackerPAL devices has propelled our company forward and helped us expand into new markets,” Olshen said. “We are experiencing rapid growth and expect it to continue in the coming months and years ahead as more people are introduced to the benefits of using our MobilePAL and TrackerPAL devices. Our expansion will enable us to service all of these new users.”

SecureAlertÂ’s facilities can provide support and monitoring assistance for more than 100,000 customers worldwide using either the MobilePAL or TrackerPAL technologies.

The new headquarters in Sandy is at least four times the size of SecureAlertÂ’s space in West Valley City and is well equipped to meet its operational needs (data, phone, electronic, etc.). The new space was also chosen as an ideal location because of its ability to accommodate SecureAlertÂ’s future expansion.

SecureAlert will have an open house and ribbon cutting ceremony at its new location on Thursday, September 15, beginning at 3 p. m.

Parents of 5-Year Old With Autism Takes an Alternative Route Using Wild-Crafted Essential Oils

Parents of 5-Year Old With Autism Takes an Alternative Route Using Wild-Crafted Essential Oils

Using pure, wild crafted organic essential oils as an alternative treatment for autism is proving to be successful for autistic child.

Arvada, CO (Vocus) April 21, 2009

What could mold, mildew, fungus, worms, parasites and allergies have to do with autism? The parents of Ciaran, 5-year old boy, diagnosed with autism was approached by their therapist who suggested the boy have a hair analysis done to check for mold, mildew, fungus, worms, parasites and allergies.

The boy's family was somewhat skeptical, so to understand what was entailed they spoke to the Doctor that runs the hair analysis. After speaking with the Doctor, they felt good about going forward with the testing.

The software program the Doctor uses scans for stressors in the body and then balancers. In this case the balancers used are Be Young Essential oils (http://www. compassjourneys. com) as an alternative treatment for autism (http://www. compassjourneys. com).

When Ciaran’s results came back, it showed 7 types of fungus, molds, 19 species of round worm and allergies to 15 foods.

Within three weeks of his mother administrating the essential oils, Ciaran started to put sentences together and eating more food, he was a picky eater. His therapist reported that he was asking her questions and holding a conversation.

Eight weeks later Ciaran had another hair analysis and it showed that his stressors out of range went from 99 to 35. L-form bacteria were found and this is a significant finding.

Four weeks after he started his new program Ciaran’s mother reports, “his progress has been outstanding. He has been more emotional and sensitive, getting his feelings hurt more often. It shows that he is understanding more of his surroundings and in tune with what is being said and what is happening around him. He isn’t just in his own little world. He has become more sympathetic for others and picks up on expressions that people have and quickly responds to them. He started soccer this last weekend and scored the first goal in the first 5 minutes of the game.”

Marine Vet, Anti-War Candidate Sheeler Surpasses Brown in RI US Senate Race

Marine Vet, Anti-War Candidate Sheeler Surpasses Brown in RI US Senate Race

Says Sheeler about other leading candidate Sheldon Whitehouse, “Two Whitehouses in DC is one too many.”

Providence, RI (PRWEB) April 18, 2006 -–

Business owner, father of five, adjunct professor and Desert Storm Marine Veteran, Carl Sheeler, FEC reported funds now surpasses that of Rhode Island Secretary of State Matt Brown’s by a ratio of almost 6 to 1. Sheeler has $200,000 cash on hand compared to Brown’s $35,000. This is far short of Sheldon Whitehouse’s $1.2 million reported available for the Democratic primary on September 12, 2006.

“I am grateful and humbled by the level of grassroots support our 'Take Back Our Country' campaign has achieved from mostly working and middle class families. We’re proud that during this past quarter over 75% of our contributions ranged from $5 to $100 and are from every day Rhode Islanders – many who are veterans and single mothers.

We have connected with many folks through direct mail and the internet that support our anti-war and Bush Impeachment efforts and don’t have $1,000+ to contribute to federal candidates like Brown and Whitehouse. As the Providence Journal recently reported, over two-thirds of their contributions are from wealthy out of state people. Do voters expect to be represented after the election? The wealth tax cuts squeezing the middle class prove otherwise.

I believe part of our surge in contributions was from our “BE PATRIOTIC IMPEACH BUSH” billboard erected along I-95 in February. We’ll be replacing it in May. I think support has also come from our warnings that our presence in Iraq means we would not have adequate funds for domestic programs like healthcare and education. Matt Brown’s campaign finance and ethics issues may have redirected financial support to us as well.

The Minnesota Democrat icon, Senator Paul Wellstone, a political outsider and unknown, won a tough and much larger primary than the one we’ll have here. Rhode Islanders are not swayed by the flash of cash alone. I trust they’ll see substance when Sheldon and Matt agree to a debate. While our cash for the primary is one-sixth of Whitehouse’s campaign, we believe people know two Whitehouse’s in DC is one too many.”

Three New Morgan Kaufmann Books Supply Keys to Unlocking Data’s Power

Three New Morgan Kaufmann Books Supply Keys to Unlocking Data’s Power

Explosion of Data Offers Challenge and Opportunity

Burlington, MA (Vocus) October 8, 2010

In our new economy, information is power. And the data captured by ever-more-sophisticated chips and computers provides the building blocks to business success. But harnessing this power remains a strategic challenge for many businesses. Three new Morgan Kaufmann books give readers the tools to get the most out of their data.

Managing Time in Relational Databases by Tom Johnston and Randall Weis shows how to make the rich information content of bi-temporal data available to business users, while simplifying the design, maintenance and retrieval of that data. Metadata declarations eliminate the need to directly model temporal data. Temporal data maintenance is isolated in code that can be invoked to update bi-temporal data in any database and from any application program, across the enterprise. Anyone who can write queries against conventional data will be able to write queries against the bi-temporal data structures described in this book.

The Practitioner's Guide to Data Quality Improvement by David Loshin shares the fundamentals for understanding the impacts of poor data quality, and guides practitioners and managers alike in socializing, gaining sponsorship for, planning, and establishing a data quality program. This book shares templates and processes for business impact analysis, defining data quality metrics, inspection and monitoring, remediation, and using data quality tools. Never shying away from the difficult topics or subjects, this is the seminal book that offers advice on how to actually get the job done.

SQL for Smarties, 4th Edition by Joe Celko was hailed as the first book devoted explicitly to the advanced techniques needed to transform an experienced SQL programmer into an expert. Now, 15 years later and in its fourth edition, this classic reference still reigns supreme as the only book written by a SQL master that teaches programmers and practitioners to become SQL masters themselves! These are not just tips and techniques; also offered are the best solutions to old and new challenges. Joe Celko conveys the way you need to think in order to get the most out of SQL programming efforts for both correctness and performance. New to the fourth edition, Joe features new examples to reflect the ANSI/ISO Standards so anyone can use it. He also updates data element names to meet new ISO-11179 rules and he expands coverage of SSD, parallel processors and how new hardware will change how SQL works, all with the same experience-based teaching style that made the previous editions the classics they are today.

About the Authors

Tom Johnston is an independent consultant specializing in enterprise data architecture, and in relational, object-oriented and data warehouse modeling in various industries, including telecommunications, health care, banking, retailing and transportation. He is also a regular columnist for DMReview and other industry-leading magazines and journals. His Web site is http://www. MindfulData. org.

Randall Weis is founder and CEO of InBase, Inc, and has more than 25 years of experience in IT and IT management, specializing in enterprise data architecture. Weis' technical expertise is in sophisticated, multi-tiered systems. He has designed logical and physical data models and implemented several high profile, very large database systems in the financial and insurance industries.

David Loshin is President of Knowledge Integrity, Inc., a company specializing in data management consulting. The author of numerous books on performance computing and data management, including Master Data Management (2008) and Business Intelligence – The Savvy Manager’s Guide (2003), and creator of courses and tutorials on all facets of data management best practices, David is often looked to for thought leadership in the information management industry.

Joe Celko served 10 years on ANSI/ISO SQL Standards Committee and contributed to the SQL-89 and SQL-92 Standards. He has written over 900 columns in the computer trade and academic press, mostly dealing with data and databases. Joe has authored eight books on SQL for Morgan Kaufmann.

Can you Spot the Next Enron?

Can you Spot the Next Enron?

Software tool can aid corporate watchdogs and investors alike seek out the next Enron.

(PRWEB) October 12, 2004

Investors made wary by recent corporate scandals now have one more tool to use in rooting out malfeasance by unethical corporate leaders.

Financial information in annual and quarterly reports and other financial disclosure is often presented to shareholders electronically in file formats that are difficult to use, including the highly secure and difficult to access PDF format. However, a new software tool allows this data to be unlocked quickly and easily for thorough-going examination and analysis. This new software tool is Able2Extract version 2.2.

Able2Extract software, with one click, instantly and directly converts numbers and data from PDF, HTML and Text into formatted Excel spreadsheets so that all of ExcelÂ’s powerful analysis capabilities and functions can be brought to bear in assessing the reliability of financial information provided by companies.

“Not very long ago, the best way to check on numbers and information delivered in PDF annual reports was to manually retype them number by number into Excel. This was frustrating, time consuming and expensive when dealing with all the data in an annual report,” said David Moon, President of Investintech. com.

Using Able2Extract, individual investors can quickly transform their data into Excel spreadsheet and proceed to evaluate the health of their investment by using the powerful tools of Excel to generate such analysis as financial ratios and models. No more having to rely on the financial analysis generated by third parties!

“Able2Extract was developed precisely to make the conversion simple, fast and accurate—and to permit the ready analysis of information provided. Users can now spend their time preparing financial ratios and models as opposed to manually re-typing data! Prior versions of our product have already been well received by individual investors and the financial services industry alike.”

Able2Extract is a bundle of 10 conversion utilities in all, with PDF to Excel being just one of the conversion options. For example, Able2Extract also instantly and reliably converts PDF into editable Word, HTML and Text as well.

The value in all these conversions is that material that previously would have had to be converted manually is transferred instantly into editable formats, ready for analysis and manipulation.

A full license of Able2Extract sells online for US$89.95, a 30-day license is also available for $19.95. A free download demo of Able2Extract is offered for a three day period.

To try or purchase Able2Extract go to www. investintech. com

RevolutionHealth. com Launches Heart Attack Recovery Center to Aid Recovery, Prevention of Further Heart Disease: Online resource covers nutrition, medication, exercise, relationships, more

RevolutionHealth. com Launches Heart Attack Recovery Center to Aid Recovery, Prevention of Further Heart Disease: Online resource covers nutrition, medication, exercise, relationships, more

Today, RevolutionHealth. com launches a new online Heart Attack Recovery Center to help the hundreds of thousands of Americans who are recovering from a heart attack or caring for someone who is. This year, an estimated 1.1 million Americans will have a heart attack and approximately half will survive the incident. With survival rates rising dramatically over the past 20 years, heart attack recovery is more critical than ever for patients and their families.

WASHINGTON (PRWEB) February 7, 2008

 RevolutionHealth. com is focusing attention on heart attack recovery during the month of February to mark American Heart Month. The free, online resource is particularly timely as a recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that only one-third of patients who survive a heart attack undergo cardiac rehabilitation, a series of lifestyle changes proven to reduce the risk of additional illness and death.

"What many people don't know is that cardiac rehabilitation can help prevent another heart attack and even turn back the clock on heart disease," said Val Jones, M. D., senior medical director of RevolutionHealth. com. "Our new online Heart Attack Recovery Center compiles key information, tools and expert guidelines, together with an active online community to help patients and their families meet and overcome this serious health challenge."

RevolutionHealth. com's new Heart Attack Center offers the following information and features:

-- Medications and supplements - Learn more about the different kinds of heart medicines, potential drug interactions and how supplements might help. Learn about approaches to missed doses and changes in medication.

-- Diet - Just as bad eating habits can contribute to heart disease, a heart-healthy diet can aid in recovery. RevolutionHealth. com's experts discuss commonly recommended diets and ingredient substitutions.

-- Exercise - How much exercise is enough? Can it ever be too soon to exercise after a heart attack? Read more about the phases of cardiac recovery and typical exercise levels for each one.

-- Stress reduction - Everyone knows that stress contributes to heart disease, but what's the best way to control, or even reduce, stress? Take an interactive assessment to measure stress levels and learn every day stress-busters and other ways to take it easy.

-- Emotional health - Depression can set in after a heart attack, so learn to recognize the signs. Take positive steps to live with heart disease and seek out group support.

-- Caregiving - Supporting your loved one who has just had a heart attack can be difficult. Educate yourself about the facts and the keys to a successful recovery.

-- Intimacy - How soon can you resume sex after a heart attack? And is it safe? Is heart medicine affecting sexual activity? Learn what's real, and what's myth.

-- Community - You are not alone. Heart attack confronts all too many American families each year. Share stories, information, recipes and more. Read about other people's experiences and share your support and strength with them.

"With all the focus on the event - the heart attack - sometimes the recovery gets lost, but the right path to recovery can make all the difference in a longer and healthier life," added Dr. Jones. "But remember, you should consult with your physician before undertaking any change in medications, diet or physical exertion."

Tempe Trains for the 7th Annual P. F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & 1/2 Marathon

P. F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & ½ Marathon Makes Perfect Harmony with Tempe Attractions and Entertainment

Tempe, Ariz. (Vocus) October 29, 2009

Runners and walkers from all levels and destinations are well into their training, preparing for the annual P. F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & 1/2 Marathon, January 17, 2010. Recognized as one of the world’s most popular running and walking festivals, the P. F. Chang’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Marathon & 1/2 Marathon begins in downtown Phoenix, races through Scottsdale and finishes in Tempe (http://www. tempecvb. com) on the Arizona State University campus.

This musically inspired race is expected to draw more than 30,000 runners, walkers and junior racers from around the world to the finish line in Tempe. Hundreds of spectators join in on the excitement to route on their athlete and enjoy the music throughout the race.

This athletic event also doubles as a musical street party, featuring a variety of music genres from reggae and jazz to country and rock at every mile along both the 26.2 and 13.1-mile courses. Runners, walkers and spectators will keep the energy going as they groove to the beat during the post-race concert in Tempe, featuring a national headliner act.

The Health & Fitness Expo kicks off race week at the Phoenix Convention Center on Friday, January 15 and Saturday, January 16. At the expo, participants can pick up their race numbers and browse over 100 vendors from the running and fitness industry.

Sunny skies and mild temperatures abound in Tempe during the winter season, making it the perfect destination for a marathon. More than half of all race participants come from outside of Arizona in part to enjoy this ideal climate. After the race, many choose to extend their stay over the long weekend and make their trip into a vacation. Some of the most popular Tempe attractions and entertainment (http://www. tempecvb. com/things-to-do/Default. aspx) include hiking in the Sonoran Desert, seeing a Broadway show at the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed ASU Gammage, dining and nightlife in Tempe’s Mill Avenue District and shopping at Tempe Marketplace and Arizona Mills.

“We wanted to offer our visitors a site that adds value to their tennis lifestyle experience,” said Lynn Forbes, vice president, Web and new media, The Tennis Channel, who oversaw the site re-launch. “At the same time, we’re driving toward utilizing its tremendous potential as both a community-creating and revenue-generating resource.

West Virginia's Children Bear Brunt of Medicaid Redesign

West Virginia's Children Bear Brunt of Medicaid Redesign

More than 93% of West Virginia's children participating in Medicaid have faced health care benefit restrictions as a result of Medicaid Redesign, a policy intended to promote healthy behaviors. "Even newborns are facing health coverage restrictions under this punitive policy," said Joan Alker, Executive Director of the Center for Children and Families at Georgetown University's Health Policy Institute.

Washington D. C. (PRWEB) August 7, 2008

More than 93% of West Virginia children participating in Medicaid (http://ccf. georgetown. edu) have faced health benefit restrictions as a result of the state's penalty-based "Medicaid Redesign" plan according to a study released today by the Center for Children and Families at Georgetown University's Health Policy Institute. West Virginia received federal approval two years ago to start restricting access to certain health care benefits if Medicaid beneficiaries did not sign or comply with a "Member Agreement".

"More than nine in ten of those affected by the change so far are children - even though children cannot themselves sign an agreement," said Joan Alker, Deputy Executive Director of the Georgetown Center for Children and Families. "Even newborns are facing health care coverage restrictions under this punitive policy change."

Beneficiaries who complete and return a Member Agreement are eligible to receive enhanced benefits while those who do not are automatically enrolled in the scaled-back basic plan that provides less coverage than was available prior to the policy change. The basic plan restricts prescription drugs to four per month, imposes restrictions on mental health services, and limits access to physical and speech therapy. The enhanced plan does not impose those limits and adds benefits designed to encourage wellness, such as weight management and nutritional education.

The stated goal of West Virginia's Medicaid Redesign was to improve health and promote healthy behaviors (http://ccf. georgetown. edu) such as smoking cessation, regular doctor visits and weight loss. Parents of children who receive health care coverage under Medicaid, even if they aren't eligible themselves, must sign an agreement or their children will automatically be assigned to the basic plan with reduced benefits. Because so few families have successfully executed the agreement, West Virginia's changes have resulted in limiting benefits, primarily for children, with no real impact on improving health or promoting healthy behavior, according to the report.

"Improving health and promoting healthy behaviors are laudable goals but restricting health care coverage for infants and children is not the way to achieve them," said Alker.

The report also uncovered problems with implementation of the program. Beneficiaries receive a mailing saying that their benefits will change to the basic plan within 90 days of their eligibility redetermination date unless they sign the Member Agreement but are not told where and how to send the completed agreement. The information also fails to clearly state that their child is at risk of losing benefits.

"At this point, all children whose benefits have been restricted have lost them as a result of shortcomings in the system," said Alker. "This unprecedented and far-reaching change to West Virginia's Medicaid program was approved by the federal government in just eight business days despite serious questions about whether children would continue to receive needed health services. Two years later, these findings raise serious questions about whether children's health (http://ccf. georgetown. edu) needs are being fully met."

Copies of the report "West Virginia's Medicaid Redesign: What is the Impact on Children?" are available from http://ccf. georgetown. edu (http://ccf. georgetown. edu)].

CCF is an independent, nonpartisan research and policy center based at Georgetown University's Health Policy Institute whose mission is to expand and improve health coverage for America's children and families.

ImTypeFree Diabetes Recipe Contest winner makes every meal a diabetic one.

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) July 11, 2007

Donna Noel, the 1st place winner of the ImTypeFree Diabetes Recipe Contest (www. ImTypeFree. com) has been following a diabetic diet since 1977…here's the catch…she's not diabetic.

"Years ago, I attended an intense lifestyle change educational session with my husband who was diagnosed with juvenile onset diabetes," Noel said. "I was so impressed with the doctor who educated us. He said that although his family wasn't diabetic, they follow a diabetic diet by choice and noted that if everyone ate diabetic meals, they could eliminate scores of other health problems," she added.

Thousands of families across the country are choosing to prepare diabetic meals. A choice that is made easier by the fact that diabetic meals are prepared with health prioritized as first on the menu.

"Diabetic meals are healthy, balanced and nutritional. The meals prepared to manage diabetes not only help diabetics manage their illness; but is beneficial to all those trying to have healthier lives," said Ann-Marie Stephens, the co-founder of ImTypeFree. com.

Noel's "White Bean Basil Chicken Salad" recipe was chosen for its combination of protein, flavor and texture, all in one deliciously simple salad.

White Bean Basil Chicken Salad Recipe:

2 cups of cooked chicken, cut into strips or cubes

1 clove of garlic, minced

1 19oz can of cannelloni beans, drained and rinsed

3/4 c. lightly packed fresh basil leaves, torn or sliced into ribbons

2 Tbsp of fresh lemon juice

½ tsp Tabasco sauce

½ tsp black pepper

8 butter lettuce leaves

Mix all ingredients together, except lettuce, and serve salad in curled butter lettuce leaf cups.

Noel is grateful for the doctors and dieticians who have given her the knowledge to prepare meals that enhance her family's and friends' health.

"We're so much luckier with today's knowledge," she said. "With that, I say…exercise, eat, drink and be merry; but watch your food choices so you can feel good again tomorrow."

DotWORLDS is Better Than Triple Viagra, Claims Dr Zilli Nillqvist, Renowned Swedish Psychologist

DotWORLDS is Better Than Triple Viagra, Claims Dr Zilli Nillqvist, Renowned Swedish Psychologist.

Hanselngretal Clinic, Stockholm: Staff are buzzing today with the incredible news that at last something can be cured without the need for tremendously expensive pills. However, elsewhere in the world, it seems that others are not quite so happy!

London, England (PRWEB) March 12, 2004

The Phamaceutical world is aghast today with the latest Report from Sweden that medical conditions may no longer need any prescriptions. Neither Glaxo nor ICI were available for comment, but rumours abound that many want to kill the Report's author, Dr Nillqvist, really slowly and without any anaesthetic. There is great concern here that soon many thousands of patients could be restored to health without any tablets, and that Christmas Bonuses for the medical industry will become a thing of the past.

It all started, says Dr Nillqvist, when a Mr Yolly, 57 from Trondheim, came to see me in a most distressed state. He told me that his latest wife had been complaining about his performance (or rather lack of it) and wanted a divorce. It transpired that this was Mr YollyÂ’s fifth wife and that all the other four had left him for exactly the same reason. In desperation, he had been taking every product under the sun (both internally and externally) but unfortunately without success. Mr Yolly was indeed in a critical condition.

Says Dr Nillqvist, I felt that something had to be done immediately. It was clear to me that Mr Yolly was running out of money (due to his many divorce settlements) and in grave danger of not being able to pay my bill. Obviously his condition had psychological overtones and it was indeed fortunate that I had recently heard about dotWORLDS domain names (www. dotworlds. net). I knew that dotWORLDS provide unlimited possibilities for all those wanting personalisation and easy-to-remember options, including domain names that you can create yourself. The cure was simple and without further delay, I gave Mr Yolly a brand new domain name www. incredible. lover. Straight away this had a soothing and calming effect on him, so I told him to go home to his wife and report back to me in seven days.

Of course, I was quietly confident of the outcome, says Dr Nillquvist, but nothing could have prepared me for what happened next. Mr Yolly returned to my surgery the following week with tears of joy in his eyes. He told me that his wife was now happily suffering from complete exhaustion and required hospitalisation. Not only this, but shortly thereafter, all his other wives had returned home and were voluntarily depositing all their divorce settlements back in his bank account. All of them were now living together.

Unfortunately though, as with many new hi-tech treatments, Mr Yolly suffered from some uncomfortable side effects. After all the excitement, Mr Yolly is looking a lot older and more recently has had some difficulty walking around. Still, this does not matter, as Dr Zilli Nillqvist will find a dotWORLDS cure for that too.

So, get with the programme and you too could be the most popular and attractive person you know. Get the excting new domain names at www. dotworlds. net. Join the growing band of converts, and get there FIRST!
