TAPCO Credit Union Earns Top Financial-Stability Award Again

TAPCO Credit Union Earns Top Financial-Stability Award Again

TAPCO Credit Union has been honored as one of the nation’s top credit unions in financial stability

(PRWEB) December 21, 2007

TAPCO Credit Union, www. tapcocu. org], of Tacoma, WA has been honored as one of the nation’s top credit unions in financial stability. TAPCO Credit Union’s “5-Star Superior rating” – the highest award for healthy credit unions – was presented by BauerFinancial, Inc.

TAPCO’s award marks the 35th consecutive quarter that it’s been honored for excellence from BauerFinancial, the nation’s leading independent credit union rating and research firm.

“This means residents of Tacoma and throughout Pierce County can join TAPCO as new members with full confidence regarding their finances,” said John Bechtholt, CEO of TAPCO. “TAPCO is proud to offer affordable loan programs and other valuable financial services at six convenient locations, along with secure online banking at www. tapcocu. org]."

“Since 1934, our valued members have responded favorably to our commitment of excellent service,” added Bechtholt. He says TAPCO’s employees work hard to live up to the TAPCO slogan: Join and Prosper.

Anyone who lives or works in Washington is eligible to join TAPCO.

“TAPCO Credit Union’s ability to earn our ‘5-Star Superior rating’ time and again speaks to its strength, stability and longevity,” said Karen L. Dorway, president of the research firm. “In an environment where financial institutions are struggling with loan quality and delinquencies, it is an honor and a pleasure to recognize TAPCO Credit Union and the values it represents.”

Award-winning TAPCO has a rich history of serving the community. It has repeatedly been named recipient of the ''Dora Maxwell Award for Social Responsibility.'' Ms. Maxwell is well-regarded for her efforts to help the needy in the nation’s early credit union movement.

TAPCO has also been instrumental in helping other important causes, such as Tacoma/Pierce County Crime Stoppers and the Tacoma-Pierce County Chaplaincy.

Why Join a Credit Union?

Credit unions are member-owned cooperative financial institutions that are historically organized around a common bond, such as an employer. Credit unions, unlike banks, are not-for-profit organizations existing only to serve their members. This enables them to pay favorable rates on savings accounts and charge competitively priced, low interest on loans.

Why Join TAPCO?

TAPCO Credit Union has a long and rich history in Pierce County. Founded in 1934 by nine City of Tacoma employees, TAPCO has grown to over 24,000 members. Anyone who lives or works in Pierce County is eligible for membership, and each member has a voice in how TAPCO operates. Member participation keeps TAPCO focused on the founding members' vision of "People Helping People."

How Does TAPCO Operate?

While maintaining a professional staff to run daily operations, TAPCO is governed by a Board of Directors that establishes and reviews policy. The Directors are TAPCO members who are elected by the membership and serve without pay. Every member has one vote, regardless of how much he or she has on deposit. At TAPCO, there is no select group of shareholders that profits more than anyone else. All members profit, individually and collectively.

TAPCO is a state-chartered credit union, organized under strict regulatory laws that are monitored and enforced by the National Credit Union Administration, an agency of the U. S. Government. The NCUA insures each member account for $100,000 which means that your money is safe with TAPCO, just as with a traditional bank.

Pet Supply Site Pets-A-Plenty. com Announces Launch of Site and Company Blog

Pet Supply Site Pets-A-Plenty. com Announces Launch of Site and Company Blog

Stocked with a varied supply of pet apparel, toys, carriers, and more, the newly launched site Pets-A-Plenty. com was established to make both happy pets and happy owners. To offer additional information about pet care and pet supplies, the site has also implemented a company blog at Pets-A-PlentyInfo. com.

Cumming, GA (PRWEB) January 21, 2009

Pets-A-Plenty. com, an online retailer of many different kinds of pet supplies, made its online debut in December 2008. Instating significant changes and updates, the site has also launched an associated blog at www. Pets-A-PlentyInfo. com.

Founded by Benjamin Heald, the site's inventory includes everything from clothing and carriers to collars and grooming products.

"We wanted a lot of diversity in our products so that all cat and dog owners could have a convenient place to shop online," said Heald. "We wanted items that covered many different aspects of a pet's life, so owners wouldn't have to shop around. And with this site, they can find everything they need in one place."

While some pet product sites are filled with impractical or poorly made products, Pets-A-Plenty. com relies on firsthand experience to ensure quality inventory. To that end, the site was founded by a pet owner and pet lover.

"I have pets myself, so I know what makes a practical and high quality product," said Heald. "This gives us a distinct advantage because we're only going to carry products we know are safe, reasonably priced, and attractive."

Because the site is concerned with animal safety as well as animal products, Pets-A-Plenty. com has recently launched a company blog at Pets-A-PlentyInfo. com. Founded in December 2008, the informational blog will cover a variety of topics ranging from pet apparel to general pet health.

Undergoing other changes in addition to the blog, the site has plans to add more products to the site's current inventory.

"I'm going through the first product population," said Heald. "The site's still new, but we're quickly accruing a diverse inventory with something for everyone."

For more information about the site or any of its available products, please visit www. Pets-A-Plenty. com.

ShareFile Moves Into 11,814 Square Foot West Raleigh Office; Expands Staff

ShareFile Moves Into 11,814 Square Foot West Raleigh Office; Expands Staff

North Carolina Company ShareFile Grows Rapidly and Relocates to Larger Raleigh Office Space.

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) October 8, 2009

ShareFile, a leading provider of online secure large file transfer (http://www. sharefile. com/ftp/large-file-transfer. aspx) and virtual data room (http://www. sharefile. com/filetransfer/virtual-data-room. aspx) solutions for businesses, announces that the company has moved its headquarters to an 11,814 square foot office in Raleigh, NC. The company's rapidly accelerating growth and increased staffing led to the need for more workspace. Highwoods Properties, the leading property management firm in the southeast, was able to tailor the space to meet the needs and time frame of ShareFile.

In the previous two months ShareFile has added several new team members in sales, marketing, account management, and engineering. With the hires and company growth, the previous office space quickly became cramped and a need for a better working environment was evident.

"Many people are shocked when they hear that we moved to an office space that is over twice as large as our previous one in the middle of a recession. Our continued growth is a testament to the hard work of the ShareFile staff and the rapid adoption of our secure file sharing (http://www. sharefile. com/about/index. aspx) offering by businesses worldwide," stated Jesse Lipson, CEO.

ShareFile's headquarters remains in Raleigh, but moves to the GlenLake Office park in the West Raleigh area. The company had been working in 2 adjoining offices for the past 3 years as the company grew quickly and needed more space. The file sharing business quickly outgrew its original 2,300 square foot office and moved part of the staff into the matching 2,300 square foot office next door. The move to the GlenLake office enables the ShareFile staff to work together in one location and provides enough room to meet the needs of a quickly expanding and successful company.

About ShareFile:

Headquartered in Raleigh, North Carolina, ShareFile (http://www. Sharefile. com (http://www. Sharefile. com)) is a leading provider of tools for exchanging business files easily, securely, and professionally. Unlike an FTP site, ShareFile can be accessed using any standard web browser and does not require software installation or special training. ShareFile's 750,000 users span over 50 industries, including accounting, advertising, law, graphic design, consulting, healthcare, and engineering. ShareFile is the 2008 Winner of CNET's WebWare 100 for file storage and security.

SilverCross Stair Lifts now covers 80% of North America

SilverCross Stair Lifts now covers 80% of North America.

SILVER CROSS sources recycled and new stair lifts and home elevators through an international network of prescreened installation companies. Common manufacturers are compared.

(PRWEB) February 1, 2004

Ten years ago, Bob Harvey had a vision to offer seniors a viable alternative to the high price of accessibility and healthcare equipment equipment across North America.

New stair lifts, elevators, vertical platform lifts and other related products were too costly for many seniors wanting to stay in their own home.

What was needed was an international network of companies that could offer the end user a viable alternative to new equipment.

Over 25,000 people are accessing this service annually.

It is estimated that over $10 million dollars has been saved by seniors using this unique service.

Over 1300 companies were screened to produce the SILVER CROSS Network of over 120 carefully selected companies that offer used equipment.

Over 75% of the USA and Canada is now covered by this unique service.

The entire network represents about 25% of the entire home lift market with retail sales in excess of $80 million dollars.

Each member of the network is continually monitored to assure customer satisfaction.

Positive customer feedback has been driving factor to determine which companies remain in the SILVER CROSS network.

Man Who Lost 300 Pounds Launches New Fitness Social Networking Site

Man Who Lost 300 Pounds Launches New Fitness Social Networking Site

A new web site called Overallhealth. com launches today with the goal of building a community of people to share information, advice and stories to help them achieve their fitness goals. The site was founded by Shawn A. Sark of Nashville, Tennessee, who ten years ago began an amazing physical transformation that resulted in his losing 300 pounds of body weight.

Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) June 3, 2009

A new web site called Overallhealth. com (http://www. overallhealth. com) launches today with the goal of building a community of people to share information, advice and stories to help them achieve their fitness goals.

The site was founded by Shawn A. Sark of Nashville, Tennessee, who ten years ago began an amazing physical transformation that resulted in his losing 300 pounds of body weight. That process introduced Shawn to the world of fitness, and he hasn't looked back since. For several years, Shawn was hesitant to talk about his weight loss experience and his past as a severely overweight person. Eventually, with the encouragement of friends and family, Shawn decided to use his past experience and knowledge gained about healthy living to help others.

The web site is divided into a number of major sections, some networking-oriented and some content-oriented. The sections include a community component, articles and stories, discussion groups, a recipe exchange, news, ebooks, and product and restaurant reviews. The long-term goal is for the site to be the ultimate information and inspiration source for those looking to lead a healthy lifestyle.

The emphasis for the site is on providing support for those involved in the process of losing weight. Discussing his weight loss experience, site founder Sark said, "There were so many times I needed to talk to someone and there was just no one to talk to." He discovered that there are many web sites where you can read information related to weight loss, but that the information was widely dispersed and required great effort to aggregate. Elaborating on his experience, Sark stated, "There is a tremendous amount of information on weight loss (http://www. overallhealth. com) out there, and I would have liked one central area to meet people and research weight loss and health products, information and services." In other words, Sark needed a resource just like Overallhealth. com.

Sark is also the author of a book titled "Slimming Your Shadow: A Guide for Parents of Overweight Children." Written in 2003, the book existed only on Sark's computer for six years. After re-discovering his own words, Sark was more determined than ever to build a support platform for those struggling with weight loss. Sark began the process of creating Overallhealth. com, and has made the book available on the website.

The web site is free to use and open to the public. With its ever growing archive of articles, recipes, fitness advice (http://www. overallhealth. com) and other information, Overallhealth. com is poised to become a hub for those seeking a supportive community to support their fitness goals.

For additional information about Overallhealth. com, contact Shawn Sark or visit www. overallhealth. com.

Beauty Secrets of the Stars

Beauty Secrets of the Stars

Celebrities have one secret that, above all others, helps them to maintain a youthful appearance. Discover their secret!

(PRWEB) July 23, 2005

It comes as no surprise that many of the most beautiful and famous people go to great lengths to maintain their youthful appearance. They work out with personal trainers. They go to the best hair salons and rejuvenating spas. They use exotic skin care products. And they go to the best cosmetic surgeons.

Cosmetic or plastic surgery can be as simple as a "lunchtime peel" or as involved as a complete face-lift. Botox injections can eliminate "frown lines." Liposuction can reduce excess fat. You can reduce or enlarge just about anything! But there is one beauty secret that is not well known. It beautifies the most looked-at part of the body. It provides dramatic transformations in one visit. It doesn't require surgery. In fact, you can stay awake through the entire procedure. What is it? Cosmetic Dentistry (http://www. san-francisco-dentist. com (http://www. san-francisco-dentist. com)).

While plastic surgery certainly has its place, cosmetic dentistry (http://www. san-francisco-dentist. com (http://www. san-francisco-dentist. com)) has its own distinct advantages. It doesn't matter how beautiful the rest of the features are, if the teeth are ugly, no one's going to pay much attention to the rest. Beautifying a smile provides instant gratification. The changes to one's appearance can be incredible! A "smile lift" immediately improves confidence and self-esteem. The recovery time is insignificant. You can eat with it, smile with it, talk with it and kiss with it!

Beyond appearances, cosmetic dentistry has the unique advantage of being able to improve one's health.

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 15, 2009

Alan David Custom Suits (http://www. alandavidnyc. com/index. php/mens-custom-suits. html), to celebrate the New Year in style, is offering one custom made suit (http://www. AlanDavidNYC. com), custom shirt (http://www. alandavidnyc. com/index. php/custom-shirts. html) and tie - priced at over $2,000 - for free. To enter the contest for this package, visit the Alan David Custom Suits (http://www. AlanDavidNYC. com) homepage, www. AlanDavidNYC. com], or drop by the store at 16 East 40th Street, New York, NY 10016.

Because of the recent economic downturn, there has been a surplus of high-quality fabrics in the marketplace. As a result, Alan David Custom Suits has been able to purchase an extraordinarily large amount of high-end Italian fabrics from the finest Italian mills. Suits that luxury department stores such as Nordstrom, Saks and Paul Stuart are now selling for $1,800-$2,500 are available at Alan David Custom Suits for only $995-$1,095.

Alan David Custom Suits has been in the business of custom suit manufacturing since 1926, when the original store was set up in New York and began to offer its customers one-of-a-kind bespoke suits that would fit on the very first try. Four generations later, this high-end men's custom suit manufacturer is still thriving, fitting New Yorkers with nothing but the best in custom-made clothing.

The expert staff at Alan David Custom Suits understands that no two body types are alike. Using a unique set of 23 measurement techniques, which have been passed down and refined with each generation, Alan David Custom Suits makes sure that each of its bespoke suits (http://www. alandavidnyc. com) is carefully configured to fit its customer's individual body type. No two patterns are ever the same. In fact, the store's mission statement is "To produce high quality men's custom suits (http://www. alandavidnyc. com) and shirts that fit as close to perfect the very first time." Says owner Alan Horowitz: "Our obsession is 100% client satisfaction. Nothing less will do."

Clothing items from Alan David Custom Suits have lined the wardrobes of top-rated TV shows such as Sex and the City and Saturday Night Live, and continue to make appearances both on the silver screen (Analyze This) and in a number of Off-Broadway shows. The company has also created custom suits and custom shirts for a good deal of celebrities, politicians, and prominent New York-area professionals, including Johnny Cochran, Chuck Schumer, Andrew Cuomo, Sheldon Silver, and Richard Grasso.

The fabrics for Alan David Custom Suits come only from luxury mills such as Scabal, Dormeuil and Zegna. The garments are all made domestically--no part of the garment-making process is outsourced overseas--and the suits are built in a state-of-the-art factory. Alan David Custom Suits uses all types of canvas and only the best interlings, which protects its garments against the frequent damages of dry cleaning. This advanced technology not only ensures the suits' initial quality, it guarantees that even the hardest of suit wearers can count on a suit that can and will last. Gone are those embarrassing creases in the crotch area; Alan David Custom Suits' patented lapel and chest canvases prevent bubbling and pilling even in the rain or snow. It is this kind of technological innovation--along, of course, with its unmatched fitting techniques--that helps Alan David Custom Suits rival other custom tailors (http://www. alandavidnyc. com) on the scale of Brioni, Oxxford and the Savile Row.

"This place is great," writes one satisfied customer. "I was always hesitant to go for custom suits because I was afraid the whole fitting process would turn into a complete hassle. But that wasn't the case with Alan David. My custom suit fit just about perfectly the first time I tried it on."

At Alan David Custom Suits, you can choose from thousands of distinct fabrics, many of which are on display as full-fledged suits, not merely as sample swatches that give only a partial indication of what a final custom product will look like. The fabrics are 100% handcrafted, and 99% stain-proofed. Furthermore, certain custom products, such as Alan David's custom ties, come with a complementary gold medallion engraved with the customer's initials.

First-time buyers at Alan David Custom Suits can also benefit from a wide range of discounts, including:
 $100 off every custom made suit.  $50 off every custom made sports coat.  $100 off every custom made tuxedo (http://www. alandavidnyc. com/index. php/custom-made-tuxedos. html).  10% off every custom made trouser.  10% off every custom made shirt. Alan David sells 20% of its clientele at their offices or homes, and is available to measure clients and have them select fabrics in their home or office, am or pm. Alan David custom suit will arrive 12 days to 3 weeks from the time of the initial order, which is one of the fastest turnaround rates in the country.

Best of all, Alan David Custom Suits offers free alterations for the life of the suit. So, whether its customers follow through on their New Year's resolution to shed those few pounds or, as is often the case, these customers suddenly find themselves having to squeeze into their custom apparel--Alan David will alter the garment for free.

The Chi Rope Revolutionizes Health From the Inside Out

The Chi Rope Revolutionizes Health From the Inside Out

Dr. John Lombardozzi, inventor of the Chi Rope, has found a revoluntionary way for individuals of all walks of life to take control of their health and well-being from the inside out with his patented exercise system called the Chi Rope.

Erie, PA (PRWEB) February 16, 2010

The Chi Rope is a specially designed set of handles with or without an interconnected jump rope made to stimulate the user's meridian system to balance the mind and body.

Dr. Lombardozzi designed his method after seeing many of his patients coming to his office with numerous stresses taking a toll on their bodies. These stresses consisted in part of improper exercise, adrenal fatigue and poor posture that affected the patients manner of walking or their gait pattern. When the gait pattern is changed it actually reverses itself and the body becomes incapable of any strength or performance. This leads to many injuries and illnesses.

The Chi Rope offers individuals a way to keep their mind and body totally in balance, thus making way for a better quality of life. The Chi Rope tones the meridians in the hands with magnetic vibrational tones that resonate into the body for a deep stimulation that resets the body's natural rhythm. This rhythm which Dr. Lombardozzi refers to as "the daily dance" should be effortless resulting in overall health and well-being. Dr. Lombardozzi says, "What people don't need in these times is another way to stress themselves trying to get healthy."

I would like the opportunity for all people to be able to take charge of their own health and well-being" says Dr. Lombardozzi. The Chi Rope allows the body to self-correct itself and stay maintained in an easy and convenient way.

Ekahau Debuts Third-Generation Wi-Fi Tag

Ekahau Debuts Third-Generation Wi-Fi Tag

New, Smaller Format Tag Features Five-Year Battery Life, Enhanced Functionality and Lower Cost.

Saratoga, CA (PRWEB) June 17, 2006

Ekahau Inc. today announced the availability of its third-generation Wi-Fi tag, which utilizes new technology that drives down the cost of deploying real-time location systems (RTLS) while improving functionality.

Designed for tracking assets and people via Ekahau RTLS, the T301-A Wi-Fi tag is smaller than previous models, has a battery life of up to five years and contains two call buttons for triggering other applications. The new design includes a tamper switch and motion sensor. Ekahau RTLS is a turn-key enterprise asset and people tracking solution that can be deployed over any brand of existing enterprise Wi-Fi network.

Unique to the T301-A Wi-Fi tag is two-way communications for remote tag management. The two-way communication capabilities allow for automatic wireless configuration of the tags’ parameters, activation the tag’s buzzer and LEDs, and updating of software. Because device management can be done remotely and requires no extra hardware, the two-way communications capabilities lower customers’ total cost of ownership.

"With this new, third-generation tag design, Ekahau is delivering the industry’s most competitive and cost-effective location tracking solution," said Arttu Huhtiniemi, director of product management, at Ekahau. "The T301-A tag further strengthens Ekahau’s position as the recognized innovation leader in the RTLS marketplace."

Industry segments such as healthcare, manufacturing, logistics and government will fuel continued demand for location tracking solutions, such as the Ekahau RTLS. According to BearingPoint Inc.’s RFID in Healthcare December 2005 survey, 42 percent of U. S. hospitals report that they are planning to adopt an RTLS solution in the near future. A similar number of high-tech and electronics manufacturers plan to do the same, according to eyefortransport’s Hi-Tech and Electronics Logistics Report 2006.

Ekahau is the first company to go to market with a tag that utilizes the "System-on-a-Chip" (SoC) from G2 Microsystems Inc. The SoC is an ultra low-power solution that is designed for active RFID and RTLS applications. As a result of a very high integration level, the G2 Microsystems’ chip significantly increases the battery life and reduces the cost of a Wi-Fi based RTLS tag. "The T301 demonstrates that Wi-Fi based RTLS tags can meet the demanding requirements of RTLS applications in healthcare, high tech, and other industries," said John Gloekler, president and CEO of G2 Microsystems. "G2 is committed to developing a family of ultra low-power SoCs allowing customers like Ekahau to design Wi-Fi tags that meet a range of price/performance points."

The T301-A Wi-Fi tag is about the size of a box of wooden matches, weighing less than 2 ounces (50 grams) and measuring 1.8 x 2.2 x 0.7 inches (44 x 55 x 19 millimeters). This small form factor allows the tag to attach to tracked equipment either temporarily or permanently – including small or oddly shaped items – using double-sided tape, cable ties, straps and other mechanisms depending on the application. For persons needing to be tracked, the tag can be carried in a pocket or worn on a wristband. A water - and dust-proof enclosure allows the tag to be used in various environments, including outdoors and indoors under dusty or wet conditions, such as factories or mines.

The tag will run up to five years on single batteries. When the battery is nearly empty, maintenance personnel will be automatically alerted via the Ekahau RTLS platform. The T301-A contains two buttons that can be configured to trigger alarms or send other messages to associated applications. The tag, which can be managed remotely from anywhere within the wireless coverage area, also has LEDs and buzzers that can be triggered for visual or audible detection of the asset or person being tracked.

Ekahau expects to begin limited shipments of the new tag to existing customers in June, with general availability through Ekahau and its authorized resellers worldwide beginning in September. The U. S. list price for the T301-A will start at $50, with quantity discounts.

About Ekahau Inc.

Ekahau Inc. is the industry leader in providing Wi-Fi based RTLS solutions. Ekahau's customers, including several Fortune 500 companies worldwide, are realizing the benefits of Wi-Fi based location services and innovative Wi-Fi network planning and optimization tools. Ekahau partners include wireless software developers, leading system integrators, and international OEM partners, who develop and market wireless enterprise applications. Ekahau is a U. S. based corporation, with offices in Saratoga, CA; Reston, VA; Helsinki, Finland; and Hong Kong, China. For more information about Ekahau, please visit at www. ekahau. com

Americas Watchdog Says The Potentially Toxic Chinese Dry Wall Issue Is Nationwide & Affected Homeowners Should Call The Group For Help Immediately

Americas Watchdog Says The Potentially Toxic Chinese Dry Wall Issue Is Nationwide & Affected Homeowners Should Call The Group For Help Immediately

Americas Watchdog & its Homeowners Consumer Center are leading the national investigation into potentially toxic Chinese drywall. Initially, the Chinese dry wall was found in Florida. Americas Watchdog has now determined the potentially toxic Chinese dry wall has been installed throughout entire US. According to the group, "While the potentially toxic Chinese dry wall was first identified in South Florida, the problem is nationwide & will involve single family homes in sub divisions, condominiums, town homes, office, retail and warehouse properties in every US state. Contrary to earlier reports, the Chinese dry wall products were first introduced to the US in 2001. The imported toxic Chinese dry wall is about to become the biggest defective product disaster in US history, and because of the health implications, it is critical we identify the victims as quickly as possible." Homeowners or building owners in Florida, California, Virginia, Arizona, Texas, Colorado or any US state who live in, or work in a property, that smells like rotten eggs or sulfur, live or work in a property that has suffered continuous air conditioning coil, or electrical wiring corrosion, that was built, or remodeled after 2000, should contact the Homeowners Consumer Center immediately at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their web site at http://HomeownersConsumerCenter. com.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 23, 2009

Americas Watchdog's Homeowners Consumer Center has been leading the national investigation into potentially toxic Chinese dry wall, and the group is now advising the nation that, "This building product is about to become literally the worst consumer disaster in US history. We are 100% confident we will find these Chinese made dry wall products in every US state, & we are warning homeowners, or building owners in affected properties to call us, so we can get their property inspected as soon as possible. This is an environmental & product failure disaster of biblical type proportions."

What Are The Time Lines As Far As When The Chinese Dry Wall Was Introduced To The United States? The potentially toxic Chinese dry wall was first introduced to the United States in 2001, and would have entered the US, through the ports of Long Beach, or Oakland California, and or the ports of Seattle/Tacoma Washington.

What Are The Symptoms Of Potentially Toxic Chinese Dry Wall In A House, Condominium/Town Home, Office, Retail Store Or Work Place?
Homeowners, building owners, or occupants in most cases will have seen continuous failures of their air conditioning coils, or HVAC units beyond anything normal. Homeowners, building owners, or occupants may have noticed corroded electrical wiring in their walls, in properties built, or remodeled since 2001. Homeowners, building owners or occupants may have experienced mild to severe upper respiratory problems, nose bleeds, headaches or other potentially serious medical conditions.

If a homeowners, a building owner or occupant of a home, a condominium, a town home, office, retail or commercial property has had or seen any of these symptoms, they should contact the Homeowners Consumer Center immediately at 866-714-6466, or contact them via their web site at http://HomeownersConsumerCenter. com (http://HomeownersConsumerCenter. com).

What Types Of Properties Could Be Affected In This Imported Chinese Potentially Toxic Chines Dry Wall Disaster?
Single family homes in subdivisions in Florida, California, Texas, Nevada, Georgia, the Carolina's, Ohio, Washington, Oregon, Colorado or any other US state built from 2001 to the present. Condominium projects in any US State, built since 2001. Town Home Projects in any US State, built since 2001. Any type of low rise commercial, retail or industrial property built or remodeled in the US since 2001. Single family homes, condominiums, town homes or commercial properties remodeled in the US since 2001. The Homeowners Consumer Center fears the Chinese dry wall was used in the post Hurricane Katrina metro area's of New Orleans. A special note to building supply, air conditioning, electrical, construction project managers, or importers: "We know many of you know, or knew about the issues with the Chinese imported dry wall, & its potential problems, or health risks. We are looking for insiders who are willing to step forward to save lives. If you have inside information about this product, please contact the Homeowners Consumer Center at 866-714-6466," or contact the group via their web site at http://HomeownersConsumerCenter. com (http://HomeownersConsumerCenter. com).

According to Americas Watchdog, "We are aware that some home builders are attempting to offer to re-dry wall a home, condominium, town home or commercial property as a fix. We consider this a bandaid that will not correct the problem in the severe cases of toxic's being released by the Chinese dry wall. Do not sign anything, until we find out more about this product." To repeat, Americas Watchdog is calling the potentially toxic Chinese dry wall products, "the worst defective product issue, and the worst environmental issue to ever hit US homeowners or building owners ever." Affected parties should contact the Homeowners Consumer Center at 866-714-6466, or contact the group via their web site at http://HomeownersConsumerCenter. com (http://HomeownersConsumerCenter. com).

Americas Watchdog & its Homeowner Consumer Center are all about US homeowner protection and corporate responsibility.

An important note From Americas Watchdog: "Aside from the entire United States, we fear toxic Chinese dry wall has been exported to Europe, Japan & Australia."

An important note from Americas Watchdog to the people of China. "The world is proud of the enormous progress your amazing country has made, in becoming a great power. Please learn from Japan, that greatness must be tempered with the desire to be proud of what you produce."

Urban Youth Program CTRIBAT Leadership Retreat 2006 “Front Line,” Seeks to Confront The Social Challenges for Today's Inner City Youth and At-Risk Youth

Urban Youth Program CTRIBAT Leadership Retreat 2006 “Front Line,” Seeks to Confront The Social Challenges for Today's Inner City Youth and At-Risk Youth

CTRIBAT offers students “life skill” workshops that focus on parent/student participation. In addition, CTRIBAT offers a summer pilot called the Leadership Retreat that focuses on fostering leadership skills in young people who reside in an Urban Environment (At-Risk Youth).

New Haven, CT (PRWEB) August 2, 2006

CTRIBAT is an Urban Based youth development program that seeks to confront the challenging social issues that plagues our youth and young adults. This is not a camp. CTRIBAT (Connecticut RIBAT) or Ultimate Retreat, is an opportunity for one to get away from the daily fast pace routines and go to a more naturalistic environment to reflect. In addition, CTRIBAT seeks to enhance ones character as well as sprit. CTRIBAT also incorporates a physical component into its entire program to challenge ones overall development. Thus, CTRIBAT could best be described as a program that seeks to develop Mind-Body-Spirit of youth in present day America so that they can build a better tomorrow.

This year, CTRIBAT Leadership Retreat 2006 “Front Line,” will focus on preparing young males on how to survive socially in modern day American Society and how to set maintain and achieve educational goals that will prepare them to pursue a career. With the continued increase in youth violence and incarceration, CTRIBAT will focus these years Leadership Retreat on young males who are most at risk for these social elements. Therefore, this years retreat will target young males between the ages of 13 years old and 16 years old who reside in the Urban Areas of New England in addition to the previous group 9 -12 years old.

CTRIBAT seeks to confront this condition “head on” through its implementation of Character Shaping. It is our philosophy that believing is only part of achieving ones goals. Youth must first have a desire to have goals, having realistic expectations and finally, creating healthy conditions in order to achieve their plan. Character Shaping is at the center of the CTRIBAT. The necessities of being polite, the importance of hygiene, being aware of the effects of healthy eating habits, the need to maintaining scholastic development and how its will aid them in the future, cultural identity and how it relates to the world around them, are just some of the social topics that CTRIBAT has identified as areas of priority. 

What makes CTRIBAT so unique is the method of delivering these social life skills to the youth? We realize that do to our society becoming more technologically advanced, many youth have become less active outdoors. Moreover, with the increase of the cost of living in the day to day life, and the increase of single parent families, many youth do not have access to travel to the many beautiful natural settings with in New England and the Tri-State area. CTRIBAT provides a bridge so that these youth can cross over to see the other side of Life In America, the Side outside of the Inner-City. This year CTRIBAT will take the Front Line on youth development.

CTRIBAT Youth Development was founded in 2003 by Officer Shafiq Abdussabur on the heels of the closing of the historical African American Community Center known as the Dixwell Q-House. The program services approximately 60 young males ages 9 years old to 17 years old. CTRIBAT offers students “life skill” workshops that focus on parent/student participation. In addition, CTRIBAT offers a summer pilot called the Leadership Retreat that focuses on fostering leadership skills in young people who reside in an Urban Environment (At-Risk Youth). The program runs 12 months year round and cost approximately $2,543.75 per student a year or just $6.97 a day.

Longtime Pet Lover Creates Web site to Distribute Clothes and Accessories for Dogs

Longtime Pet Lover Creates Web site to Distribute Clothes and Accessories for Dogs

Founder of StuffDogsNeed. com, Linda Joseph, created an online business to distribute a variety of clothes and accessories designed for pets, especially dogs. From T-shirts and coats to beds, toys, leashes and more, her pet-themed inventory is unlike anything found at a typical pet store. Shoppers are encouraged to visit the site's blog to read a variety of tips on how to improve their pet's comfort and health.

West Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 2, 2009

Mother of three, Linda Joseph recalls that, "in our home, pets were always family." When her children were young, they often dressed up Sam, the family dog, in a variety of outfits, particularly sports jerseys, and took him on outings. The idea of active wear and accessories for pets is a notion that took hold with her then and stuck eventually prompting her to transform her children's inspiration into a business. Thus, she established www. StuffDogsNeed. com in October of 2009.

Here, pet lovers and shoppers alike can browse through a lavish array of coats, vests, dresses, hats, raincoats, scarves, sweaters, hoodies and T-shirts to dress up their precious pooches. In family tradition, Joseph's site also offers such merchandise in an assortment of sports-themed options that encompass colleges and universities, MLB, NASCAR, NBA, NFL and pro soccer.

"Some people love to have an entire wardrobe for their dog, while others are hesitant at the idea of dogs' clothes, but few can refuse sports clothes for their pups," she said.

In addition to Joseph's handpicked selection of pet apparel, she also offers an eclectic variety of pet accessories that include beds and blankets, totes and carrying cases, bowls, mats, collars, leashes, furniture, strollers and more. Customers are prompted to check back often as she will continue to update her inventory, starting with the addition of backpacks and bowls that won't leak water - this line of accessories is intended to make it easier for on-the-go pet owners to take their dogs along, no matter where they decided to go. Other similar accessories are also on the horizon.

"A doggie dresser, to store the pet clothes, is an adorable way to stay organized; however, my selection also includes a more casual variety of pet accessories for the everyday pet owner who's not a Paris Hilton wanna be," Joseph said.

Shoppers are encouraged to visit the Web site's newly formulated blog to learn helpful tips to keep dogs healthy and comfortable; starting with the importance of vegetables in a dog's diet. This interactive tool, www. TalkingAboutPets. com, will be used in the future to list public facilities where pets are allowed in addition to detailed product information.
