192.com Delivers Their Best Ever Maps to Consumers and Business

Released on = July 30, 2007, 4:50 am

Press Release Author = 192.com

Industry = Consumer Services

Press Release Summary = 192.com have announced new improvements to their best ever UK street maps, aerial photography and journey planner

Press Release Body = 192.com has announced the first in a series of major improvements to its maps service, which was first launched last autumn and has since been experiencing a surge in traffic during recent months.

192.com (http://www.192.com/) has republished all of its street maps (http://www.192.com/maps/index.cfm) after exclusively redrawing every UK map to incorporate the latest Ordnance Survey data and ensure all street labelling is shown in an easy to read format. 192.com is unique on the internet for labelling 100% of UK streets (typically rival sites name 70-80%) and so uses hand drawn labelling particularly for crowded, historic cities with many street names in close proximity.

The colouring of the maps has also been optimised to suit motorists and non-motorists alike and to accommodate the changing requirements of computer and mobile screens. The aerial photography, already acclaimed as the best available for the UK, has also been improved further and offers unrivalled clarity and resolution nationwide, not just in cities. But itРІР‚в„ўs the transition between maps and photography that really sets 192.comРІР‚в„ўs new maps service (http://www.192.com/maps) apart, with the smoothest, cleanest transfer from map to map, and map to detailed aerial photography.

The update also sees a new 192.com Journey Planner
(http://www.192.com/maps/journeyplanner) including a fully interactive travel map and ‘real route’ directions that accurately navigate around major landmarks and highlight the major distances in your journey; particularly important on unfamiliar routes.

At the same time, 192.comРІР‚в„ўs business mapping solutions have received a major boost with the launch of five new ready to implement modules including a multi-criteria store locator, store profile module and customisable journey planner. A business Application Programming Interface (API) has also been made available which will make it even easier for businesses to embed 192.com maps into their own websites and build their own dynamic interactive mapping applications.

“In an era of globalisation and standardisation, we are proud to be UK-centric and this will always be our focus,” commented Dominic Blackburn, new technology director, 192.com. “We are setting out to make our maps even better over the next few months and there will be some dramatic further improvements in the quality of our aerial photography in certain areas. The next step for the industry is to fully integrate business and residential data into maps, something for which 192.com already has products in beta test phase.”

Bring Fido on the ferry with Stena Line

Press Release Author = Stena Line

Industry = Consumer Services

Press Release Summary = Stena Line now boasts new and improved kennels on the recently lengthened and refurbished Superferries on the Harwich – Hook of Holland route

Press Release Body = Leading ferry operator Stena Line now boasts new and improved kennels for the beloved dog to provide a comfortable place to rest while owners enjoy the new onboard experience on Stena LineРІР‚в„ўs newly lengthened and refurbished Superferries.

As part of the latest refurbishments on the Stena Britannica, which sails on the Harwich – Hook of Holland (http://www.stenaline.co.uk/stena_line/stena_line_uk/gb/harwich_-_holland.html) route, Stena Line have ensured that there is enough room in each of their
well-ventilated kennels for petite pooches to colossal canines. The pet area is situated in a special quiet area of the vessel to ensure travelling pets can remain as calm and tranquil as possible during the crossing. The Stena Hollandica will also soon have its own designated pet area to ensure that no matter which of the ferries customers choose to travel on, they can rest assured that pet travel to Holland with Stena Line (http://www.stenaline.co.uk/stena_line/stena_line_uk/harwich_-_holland/planning_your_trip/gb/travel_with_pets.html) will be stress free for both pets and owners.

Stena Line (http://www.stenaline.co.uk/stena_line/gb/stena_line_uk.html) already gives dog owners who wish to transport their pet the option to house their dog within their own vehicle for the duration of the crossing, whilst those travelling with a cat can keep them in the comfort of their own cat boxes inside the car. With Stena Line prices for pet travel to Holland (http://www.stenaline.co.uk/stena_line/stena_line_uk/harwich_-_holland/planning_your_trip/gb/travel_with_pets.html) costing less than a few days at most boarding kennels, the service is proving to be popular amongst pet owners and makes bringing a pet along to enjoy the holiday a pleasing alternative compared with leaving them in a kennel.

Last year Stena Line transported over 2,700 cats and dogs across the North Sea, with the majority of dogs crossing during the summer holidays. This displays a rising trend for UK travellers to take their pets on holiday with them.

Holland has always proved a popular destination for travellers, boasting a range of outdoor activities for holidaymakers, with or without their pets, from walks in the parks or along the many canals of Rotterdam to cycling HollandРІР‚в„ўs picturesque towns and countryside.

About Stena Line Ferries
In the UK alone, Stena Line offers over 30 daily crossings on its five different routes to Ireland (Stranraer to Belfast, Fleetwood to Larne, Holyhead to Dublin, Holyhead to Dun Laoghaire and Fishguard to Rosslare) as well as two daily crossings on its Harwich to Hook of Holland route providing fast and efficient crossings with excellent onboard services and facilities.

Breast Cancer Conquered Without Toxic Drugs

 

Released on = July 30, 2007, 6:50 am

Press Release Author = Gabe Bartha

Industry = Healthcare

Press Release Summary = New website provides information on treatments that selectively target cancer cells

Press Release Body = The recent discovery of an Italian oncologist and research scientist, Dr. Tullio Simoncini of Rome, enabled him to develop a procedure that produces spectacular results in treating breast cancer.

Combined with another protocol developed at an oncological clinic in Oklahoma, the treatment takes advantage of recent advances in cancer research, and of the discovery of Dr. Simoncini. He calls the medical community’s attention to the fact that every cancer cell has a fungus within it that is driving the cell’s fermentation-based metabolism. He believes that in the case of cancer, “we are looking at a very sick cell within which lives a very healthy microbe”. Dr. Simoncini also discovered that pharmaceutical-grade sodium bicarbonate is a superb fungus killer. He has proven his theory by eliminating tumors in hundreds of cancer patients, some of them terminal cases.

Two FDA-approved substances have been found to be capable of “potentiating” anti-cancer medication to selectively target cancer cells. Combining them with anti-fungal and anti-cancer drugs, breast cancer can be dealt with without toxicity and without any side effects.

A new website, called BreastCancer2008.com, authored by Canadian journalist and medical data researcher Gabe Bartha, is devoted to the detailed description of a number of therapies based on the Simoncini/Oklahoma concept, and on the principle of selective targeting of cancer cells.

The website also examines a fascinating field where breakthrough innovations have recently been introduced: The detection and monitoring of breast cancer. There is a gentle, non-invasive method that can detect cancer formation in the breast 8-10 years before it shows up in any standard test. It is FDA approved and available all over the country, yet very few women are aware of it. On top of it, there is a new, inexpensive over-the-counter device available that enables a woman to perform breast palpation at home, any number of times, and without any discomfort or side effects. The device is able to detect a lump of the size of a grain of sugar.

The astounding truth is, writes Bartha at the website, that we have arrived at the stage where breast cancer patients are not killed by the disease, but by their, and their doctors’, lack of information. This view, he adds, is supported by overwhelming clinical evidence.

Further information is available at www.breastcancer2008.com. Mr. Bartha can be contacted from the CONTACT page of the website.

Who Hates to Hear They Look Great? Over Half of the Chronically Ill!


Released on = July 29, 2007, 3:21 am

Press Release Author = National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week Committee

Industry = Healthcare

Press Release Summary = Nearly 1 in 2 people in the USA has a chronic condition and 96% of it is invisible. A new survey reveals that over half of the chronically ill get annoyed when someone says, “You look so good!” because it invalidates their illness and suffering. National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week strives to create awareness for invisible illness.

Press Release Body = SAN DIEGO – AUGUST 2007 — In a recent survey of 611 chronically ill individuals, done by the National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week committee, 53.27% of the respondents said that the most frustrating or annoying comment people make about their illness is “But you look so good!”

“Although telling someone they look good is often seen as a compliment,” says Lisa Copen, founder of National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week “it feels like an invalidation of the physical pain or seriousness of one’s illness and the suffering they cope with daily.”

According to Copen, author of “Beyond Casseroles: 505 Ways to Encourage a Chronically Ill Friend,” statistics show that nearly 1 in 2 people in the USA have a chronic condition and 96% of it is invisible. National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week held September 10-16 for 2007, is an outreach to increase awareness that living with an invisible illness can be emotional challenge—as well as physical—and that more people than we would imagine are suffering silently.

Respondents answered the survey at www.invisbleillness.com and reported the following other annoying comments people tend to make:
* “Your illness is caused by stress.” (14.22%)
* “If you stopped thinking about it and went back to work…” (12.42%)
* “You can’t be in that much pain. Maybe you just want attention.” (10.95%)
* “Just pray harder.” (9.15%)

Carmen Leal, creator of SomeOne Cares Christian Caregiver Conference and author of “The Twenty-Third Psalm for Caregivers” says, “When someone appears physically normal people are less likely to show understanding and compassion. National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week is an important opportunity to help families, businesses, churches, and communities understand that conditions without an outward sign are just as debilitating as other more visible illnesses and disabilities.”

Copen, 38, who has lived with rheumatoid arthritis and fibromyalgia for fifteen years agrees. “We know that 75% of marriages impacted by illness end in divorce and 70% of suicides have uncontrollable physical pain as a factor.* There are hundreds of invisible illness such as diabetes, cancer, myasthenia gravis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and Crohn’s disease as well as mental illness and conditions such as bulimia or migraines. Regardless of one’s illness or level of pain, feeling isolated and misunderstood can be emotionally devastating. We are each responsible for learning how to effectively show compassion and understanding to those we can about, including the chronically ill.”

National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week’s web site has articles, resources and will feature twenty online seminars during Sept 10-14, 2007. Guests include Maureen Pratt, author of “Peace in the Storm: Meditations on Chronic Pain and Illness” and Jenni Prokopy, founder of ChronicBabe.com. Outreach materials include t-shirts, silicone awareness bracelets and rack cards, appropriate for support groups or the work place state what to say and not say to a chronically ill person.

The theme for 2007’s invisible illness week campaign is “Living with invisible illness is a roller coaster. Help a friend hold on!”

For more information see http://www.invisibleillness.com or call 888-651-7378. National Invisible Chronic Illness Awareness Week is sponsored by Rest Ministries, http://www.restministries.org, a Christian organization that serves the chronically ill and HopeKeepers Magazine.

Smile South Florida – Broward Cosmetic Dentist Offers Oral Cancer Screening

 

Released on = July 29, 2007, 9:17 am

Press Release Author = Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry

Industry = Healthcare

Press Release Summary = Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry adds Vizilite PlusР’В® oral cancer screening to its offering of services.

Press Release Body = July 30, 2007—MIAMI, BOCA RATON AND FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA— Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry recently began offering Vizilite Plus® oral cancer screenings.

The practice began offering the screenings in June, in light of the fact that about 30,000 new cases of oral cancer are diagnosed each year in the United States, said Dr. Charles Nottingham, a cosmetic dentist who is the senior partner of Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry. When caught at its earliest stage, oral cancer can be cured relatively easily.

“We opted to begin conducting the ViziLite Plus® exam because it will help us identify abnormal tissue that might develop into oral cancer,” Nottingham said. An annual ViziLite Plus® exam, in combination with a regular visual examination, provides a comprehensive oral screening procedure for patients at increased risk for oral cancer.

Although adults should be screened annually for oral cancer, Nottingham said, men older than age 40 who use tobacco products and drink more than one alcoholic beverage per day are at the highest risk of developing oral cancer.

“They certainly should consider the screening,” he said, adding, “Anyone who uses tobacco products should be screened for oral cancer.”

The ViziLite PlusР’В® exam is painless, fast and non-invasive, according to the companyРІР‚в„ўs Web site, www.vizilite.com.

The ViziLite PlusР’В® exam is performed immediately following a regular visual examination. The first step is to rinse with a cleansing solution. Then, the overhead lighting is dimmed and the dentist examines the mouth using ViziLite PlusР’В®, a specially designed light technology. This light technology causes abnormalities that may not be seen by the naked eye to glow a bright white.

If you would like to learn more about oral cancer screening or speak to a professional to determine whether you should be screened, call Smile South Florida today at (954) 721-6950 in Broward County, (561) 347-7757 in Boca Raton visit our website at www.smilesouthflorida.com.

About Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry
The dentists at Smile South Florida Cosmetic Dentistry have offices in Broward County and Boca Raton and serve patients from Boca Raton to Fort Lauderdale and Miami. In addition to being trained in the ViziLite PlusР’В® oral cancer screening procedure, they specialize in porcelain veneers, dental implants and extreme makeovers.

Eco-Fashion for Dogs: Dog Clothes With a Message

 

Released on = July 29, 2007, 8:50 am

Press Release Author = Ellen McNeill/MyConservationBaby.com

Industry = Apparel & Fashion

Press Release Summary = The latest trend in pet wear is statement clothing with messages that make a difference

Press Release Body = MyConservationBaby.com, the Fletcher, North Carolina-based company which paved the way for conservation messages on baby onesies and toddler tees has done it again. The company just introduced its newest addition—a 100% cotton black pet tee shirt silk-screened with the message to Stop Global Warming in white and gold.

“Stylish pet clothes with conservation messages are the ultimate way for pet owners to share their values with the rest of the world,” says Ellen McNeill who, along with her husband Michael, launched their innovative website. “Many pet owners consider their pets to be their babies so it is only natural that we would want to satisfy their needs.”

The McNeill’s believe that in addition to their line of hip baby clothes, cool dog clothes are an ideal way to spread important conservation messages. “One of our goals is to increase public awareness of conservation issues and motivate people to take personal action at the family level. You cannot get closer to a family than the family pet.”

The concept of conservation messages on baby clothes is a hit with young moms and the McNeill’s believe that pet clothes with conservation messages will be a hit with small dog owners as well. “Dogs have to breathe in the air as much as we do and they are also impacted by the world around them.”

Ellen McNeill says that the funky pet tee already has a following. “Depending on the success of our Stop Global Warming message we plan to include more messages on pet clothes.” They intend to expand to add Conserve, Protect the Environment, Save the Forests, Recycle and Re-Use and Eco-Friendly.

The company also offers an adult tee with the same Stop Global Warming logo that can be found on the pet tee. “Some pet owners like the idea of the ‘doggie and me’ look,” says McNeill.

Terri Lee and friends once again deliver diversity and delight to a whole new generation of little girls!

Released on = July 28, 2007, 4:42 am

Press Release Author = Allyson Kovaleski

Industry = Retail

Press Release Summary = One of the first doll companies to shatter the color barrier in the mid-‘40s, Terri Lee Inc. launched African-American dolls Bonnie Lou and Patty Jo, who defied the stereotypes of the day with their stylish fashions and beautiful painted faces. Even more ethnically diverse dolls followed, to the delight of countless little girls, as well as today’s most discerning doll collectors.

Press Release Body = July 28, 2007– By all accounts, the demographic face of America is changing dramatically. But here’s one thing that remains the same. Just like she did over 50 years ago, adorable Terri Lee—the toddler doll “born to love and be loved”—is blazing a trail to celebrate that increasing diversity with a circle of ethnic friends designed to delight little girls of all cultures and skin colors!

One of the first doll companies to shatter the color barrier in the mid-‘40s, Terri Lee Inc. launched African-American dolls Bonnie Lou and Patty Jo, who defied the stereotypes of the day with their stylish fashions and beautiful painted faces. Even more ethnically diverse dolls followed, to the delight of countless little girls, as well as today’s most discerning doll collectors.

Terri Lee Associates has drawn upon the rich and groundbreaking heritage of Terri Lee to launch a diverse new line of friends, such as Ella Princess Ballerina, a top-selling African-American beauty available on terrilee.com now, and who will soon make her premiere on Target.com.

In addition, Terri Lee Associates is also working hand-in-hand with Kmart, by supplying an array of culturally diverse dolls—including classic favorites Bonnie Lou and Patty-Jo—to stock the retailer’s newest doll aisle. Debuting in August, the aisle will be dedicated solely to multi-cultural dolls in order to address the needs of the evolving marketplace.

“Given the leading role Terri Lee played in bringing diversity to the doll world in the 1940s, we are proud to return to her roots and continue that tradition today,” says Allyson Kovaleski, Director of Product Development and National Sales for Terri Lee Associates.

Terri Lee is a trend-setter, not a trend-follower.

“Remaining true to the Terri Lee legacy also helps differentiate the historic line from countless dolls in the marketplace which have abandoned childhood innocence in favor of more provocative fashions and adult attitudes.” Says Gretchen McGinnis, Director of Marketing for Terri Lee Associates

With fabulous fashions and accessories that are simple for a toddler to manipulate, silky hair thatРІР‚в„ўs fun for girls to style, and a rich heritage that mothers and grandmothers can take pride in, Terri Lee retains a truly cross-generational appeal. ItРІР‚в„ўs no wonder Doll Reader magazine voted her the fourth best-selling doll of all time!

Midwest Internet Marketing Super Conference Picks Bloomington, MN as Host City for Event

Released on = July 28, 2007, 12:30 am

Press Release Author = Jeff Mills – Goldmills Marketing, LLC

Industry = Internet & Online

Press Release Summary = After struggling financially for many years, Jeff Mills, a former Youth Pastor from Minnesota will be sharing powerful business building strategies by interviewing the elite experts of internet marketing. From July-October, 2007, Jeff will be hosting weekly free Educational Webinars/Tele-Seminars for aspiring business builders to attend.

Press Release Body = Cottage Grove, MN July 28, 2007 — Jeff Mills knows what it is like to struggle financially and not have enough money to pay his bills. But that all changed the moment he began seeking ways he could use the internet to run a profitable business, by working with proven marketing masters and mentors.

Jeff has a solution for people who want to warp speed their business success and it’s called the Midwest Super Conference.

“The learning curve was steep,” offered Jeff, “I had to pay my dues and fail my way into success at a cost of about $20,000 over 4 years, because I had no one to help guide me and I was clueless without a strong mentor.”

For most would be entrepreneurs, the dream of internet success is only that… A dream. They start off with a website, a domain name, and they tell a few friends, family members and strangers on the street about their exciting web business or product, but the sales fail to show up. Debts mount, frustrations and stress levels increase and for most people, success eludes them.

It’s not an uncommon story. The internet is filled with stories of lost fortunes and lost souls who paid dearly with their time and money only to be left on the street cold and hungry.

But it does not have to be this way.

Jeff Mills has found phenomenal success on the internet. After his first 4 years of miserable failure, Jeff did what most entrepreneurs fail to do right from the beginning. He found a marketing mentor and was taught solid principles and strategies which lead him to produce over $1.8 Million in sales online in the last 3 years alone.

Jeff was able to do this with virtually no staff, no commute and by running his internet businesses successfully from his converted storage closet at his home.

Mills is seeking out struggling internet marketers who need help, and is prepared to teach them powerful strategies and systems which will give them an unfair advantage over their competition and speed up their learning curves.

Jeff Mills is the founder of the wildly successful, Midwest Internet Marketing Super Conference, which is a live marketing event that takes place each year in the fall.

This year, Jeff is hosting the event September 28-30, 2007 in Bloomington, MN and he is limiting his event to only 80 participants.

It was through attending live continuing education seminars that Jeff learned the power of networking with others and how Jeff was actually able to gather real solid marketing brain food that took his business from the outhouse, to the penthouse.

“I finally got sick and tired of trying to figure this all out on my own. I was not an expert, but I knew of others having success in their businesses using the internet, so I followed the principle that “success can be copied. I leaned how to duplicate the systems that are working for others. So that’s what I did,” said Mills.

Jeff will be providing over 15 live free Preview Video Streams lasting about an hour each with millionaire experts to ANYONE looking for marketing advice through a new concept called a “Webinar”.

A Webinar is essentially a conference call over the phone, where you dial into a phone bridge, and then also connect to the internet and watch on your computer monitor, what the presenter has on his or her monitor. Essentially, it is like looking over the shoulder of a mentor, as they walk you through websites, systems, diagrams, and PowerPoint slides that will help the struggling entrepreneur gain new knowledge, which if applied, will result in massive profits online.

The Midwest Super Conference is providing these free preview webinars weekly all the way up to October and is offering a free sign up form at www.midwestsuperconference.com.

The webinars are meant to be a pre-view of the real face to face seminar which has been shown to be a huge draw to many internet marketers in the Midwest.

Last year, the speaker roster was filled with the “who’s who” of the marketing masters. John Childers, Mitch Carson, Joel Bauer, Marc Harty, Joel Comm, Ray Edwards, Stu McLaren, and other top trainers all took time out of their busy schedules to teach at Jeff’s conference for free.

This year’s conference has an even stronger line up. The faculty of this year’s event includes Matt Bacak, Debra Thompson Roedl, Jason Henderson and Rob Smith, Jeff Adams, Sherry Watson, Larry Benet, Daniel Unsworth, JJ Childers, Matthew Glanfield, Steve Renner, plus Pat Lovell. It’s a powerhouse faculty covering many diverse concepts around marketing and showing people how to make more money.

Last year, Rob Smith expressed this opinion of the conference, “I usually attend 5-6 conferences per year and Jeff’s Midwest Super Conference has been the best one I have ever attended. It’s the sleeping giant of internet marketing conferences.”

Matthew Sikich said, “I have gleened so much information from the speakers. I have learned so many things which have allowed me to expand my online business and get more traffic to my website… any small business owner would really benefit from Jeff’s next event.”
