Rebel Diet Author slams the Diet Industry

 

Released on: January 30, 2009, 6:56 am

Press Release Author: Emma James

Industry: Healthcare

Press Release Summary: Weight loss specialist and controversial author slams the diet industry for creating an “addiction” to buy into thier products.

Press Release Body: The author of Rebel Diet, the controversial diet book which was recently released has today said that the diet industry must be capped in some way.

Emma James said “ there is so much hype and mystery created by the diet industry in order to keep people buying into their products. Even Paul McKenna has jumped on the band wagon with no idea about diet and weight management. There must be some kind of regulation put on misleading and marketing pitches to hook people into the diet vortex”.

Speak out about the situation she also stated that entire ploy was to ensure people never got all the information to allow them to learn what works for their own body and therefore free themselves from the dependence on diet meals and systems. She said “even people with comfort eating problems and real disorders are getting dragged into this “creating a need” philosophy of selling instead of outlining how to solve the problems themselves”.

The author flies to Las Vegas next week to speak at the Building Bridges seminar on the 8th February at the Tuscany Suites Conference Centre and to speak out about the role of the therapist in the diet industry and about her book which claims to give “missing link” to the reader and free themselves from the Diet Hell.

She also plans to launch webinars for people wishing to opt out of the diet chains later in the year and provide practical information for the user to take over their own weight management and address eating related problems.

The secured loans market – a few facts


 

Released on: January 30, 2009, 6:46 am

Press Release Author: Think Money

Industry: Financial

Press Release Summary: There are reasons the recent base rate cuts have not led loan providers to slash the interest charged on secured loans, as financial solutions provider Think Money points out.

Press Release Body: Following the recent spate of rate cuts, financial solutions provider Think Money raised a few points about the secured loans market.

Melanie Taylor, Head of Corporate Relations at Think Money: “In just three months, the Bank of England’s base rate dropped from 5% to just 1.5%, prompting substantial changes in the mortgage market – but not in the secured loans market. Many people have questioned this: if mortgage lenders can lower their rates, they ask, why are loans providers seemingly unwilling or unable to do the same?

“The answer lies in the differences between the mortgage market and the secured loan market. Both deal with secured credit and so depend heavily on trends in the housing market as well as the availability of credit, but the two markets are fundamentally different.

“First – and perhaps foremost – a secured loan is a second charge. If a property ends up being repossessed, repayment of the first charge (the mortgage) will always take priority over repayment of the second charge. So from the lender’s perspective, a secured loan is simply more risky than a mortgage – and greater risk has always been accompanied by higher interest charges.”

Committed to the principles of treating customers fairly, lenders will enter into possession proceedings only as a last resort, but the ‘second charge’ issue is still very much a factor in today’s economic climate, with the Council of Mortgage Lenders predicting 75,000 repossessions this year, and no clear indication of when we’ll see a recovery in the housing market.

“Second, it’s clear that the Government’s initiatives aimed at keeping people in their homes are focusing on mortgages, not secured loans. Government help is welcome, as it could help homeowners and limit the damage to the housing market, but this focus on mortgages does add to the difference between mortgages and secured loans, in terms of risk to the lender.”

At the same time, the secured loans market is being adversely affected by the same issues currently plaguing the mortgage market – primarily, the shortage of wholesale funding and the ongoing drop in property prices.

“It’s a common misconception that the base rate dictates the cost of wholesale credit, but this is simply not the case. As the Council of Mortgage Lenders has stated: ‘the cost of funds to lenders depends not on Bank rate, but on a range of other factors, including what they have to pay savers to attract deposits, how much it costs them to borrow in money markets, and the costs of holding capital and sufficient liquidity’.

“Falling house prices, meanwhile, have made lenders much more cautious about granting either secured loans or mortgages. Most analysts seem to expect prices to bottom out after falling another 10% or so this year, but there’s no guarantee this will happen, or that the subsequent recovery in prices will be either immediate or rapid.

This explains why most lenders are reluctant to offer mortgages or secured loans which would leave the homeowner with less than 20% equity. After all, a property worth £200,000 today could be worth £150,000 this time next year. It’s a worrying thought for the homeowner, but also for the lender, who might find a portion of their loan isn’t actually secured against anything – at least, not until property prices rise again.”

MultiFactor’s SecureAuth offers AlertBoot users a secondary layer of authentication security

 

 

Released on: January 30, 2009, 6:40 am

Press Release Author: MultiFactor Corp.

Industry: Computers

Press Release Summary: MultiFactor Corp. announces the integration of its flagship product, SecureAuth® and Data Guard Systems’ newest product, AlertBoot

Press Release Body: IRVINE, CALIF., January 29, 2009 — MultiFactor Corporation, an innovator in 2 factor authentication, Web application security and SSL VPN Authentication solutions, today announced the integration of its flagship product, SecureAuth® and Data Guard Systems’ newest product, AlertBoot.

AlertBoot transforms enterprise-level full disk encryption and data security into a fully-managed and centralized Web-based service. It promises customers the same benefits as a traditional full disk encryption and data security solution, but on a platform that is scalable to the needs of an organization and requires far less investment in IT infrastructure, support, and training.

“A Web-based platform and an emphasis on a user-friendly customer experience were common ground for AlertBoot and SecureAuth,” said Timothy Maliyil, Data Guard’s Systems’ CEO. “And it didn’t take long to realize that SecureAuth could integrate X509 certificate technology authentication in a way that wouldn’t affect delivery of AlertBoot’s basic product performance while maintaining the integrity of key differentiators of speed and convenience.”

SecureAuth revolutionized X509 certificate technology authentication into a tokenless, non-phishable, two-way authentication solution that can be effortlessly deployed over the Web and requires virtually no training or infrastructure modifications to implement and manage. The solution proved to be a perfect match for the type of multi-factorauthentication system AlertBoot needed for AlertBoot Central, its administrative console.

“This level of security becomes especially critical, considering the new type of DNS phishing attacks Hackers have been mounting,” said Garret Grajek, COO of MultiFactor Corporation. “These attacks fool a DNS server—which directs alphabetical URL requests to the corresponding numerical IP address of a website—into directing the user unknowingly to a hacker-created site where they capture your log-in information. However, when a hacker attempts to replay your log-in in AlertBoot, the absence of a certificate prevents them from gaining access.”

SecureAuth works by authenticating both the user and the client for each session via a non-exportable cryptographic credential. When an authorized user logs into AlertBoot Central for the first time, they’re immediately redirected to the SecureAuth registration system, which emails them a PIN. Once they enter the PIN, the system installs the certificate on their computer. From that point on, whenever the user logs into the AlertBoot management console, they’re instantly authorized.

The end result is that the user and customer both enjoy the full security benefits of X509 certificate technology authentication, but without the additional infrastructure that would have otherwise been required.

About MultiFactor Corporation
MultiFactor Corporation is the leader in strong, simple to use, user authentication. SecureAuth is a true plug-n-play dual factor authentication mechanism that allows secure access into the enterprise network and application resources. Enabling the enterprise to cost effectively harness the true power of the network. Please visithttp://multifa.com.

Stena Line announce major makeover for Stena Caledonia

 

Released on: January 30, 2009, 6:34 am

Press Release Author: Stena Line

Industry: Travel

Press Release Summary: Stena Line has revealed plans to revamp its Stena Caledonia conventional ferry

Press Release Body: Stena Line, the leading ferry company, has announced it is to spend £1.8 million on revamping its Stena Caledonia conventional ferry. Work on the major makeover began on the 27th January at the Cammell Laird yard in Birkenhead and is due to be completed by February 12th.

The Stena Line ship, which operates on the Stranraer-Belfast route, is to be given new features including a luxury Stena Plus lounge, a Barista coffee house/bar, a Curious George themed play area for kids and a new guest services desk.

Another major new feature set to be included on the ship is free Wi-Fi. Access to the wireless broadband is free of charge to passengers using their own laptop or PDA (personal digital assistant). The technology is supplied by satellite broadband to ensure uninterrupted coverage throughout the crossing. When passengers board they can simply ask for a Wi-Fi access card at guest services and then they can go online to work or play.

As part of the revamp, the restaurant on the vessel is to be refurbished and rebranded as Food City, while the décor and seating will be upgraded and extra seating will be added to the ship’s cinema. The onboard shop will be spruced up as well and there will be improved disabled/lift access from the car deck.

The accommodation upgrade on the Caledonia is to be carried out by County Down based company MJM.

Paul Grant, Route Manager for the Stranraer-Belfast ferry, said the £1.8m project showed the company’s ongoing commitment to the route.

Mr Grant said: “The refurbished Caledonia will be an excellent alternative to our HSS fastcraft on the route. The Caledonia can travel between Scotland and Northern Ireland in under three hours and its new and improved facilities onboard will mean passengers can enjoy a relaxed journey in modern surroundings.”

Refits of two other Stena Line ships have also been completed at Cammell Laird this year. The Stena Leader had a £900,000 refit, while £1 million was spent on the Stena Pioneer. New accommodation for crew was added on the vessels, which both operate on the Fleetwood-Larne route.

The HSS Stena Voyager fastcraft meanwhile, which operates on the Stranraer-Belfast route had a £1.05 million refit at the Harland & Wolff yard in Belfast. Another Stena Line vessel, the HSS Explorer, was put into dry dock at Harland & Wolff in preparation for its annual refit, which will cost £1.1 million and is set for completion on February 10th. The ship operates between Holyhead and Dun Laoghaire.

The Belfast yard was also used back in November when the Stena Europe, which serves the Fishguard-Rosslare ferry route, was given a £750,000 overhaul.

About Stena Line:
Stena Line is the market leader on the Irish Sea, offering the biggest ferry fleet and the widest choice of routes between Ireland and Britain, including Belfast to Stranraer, Larne to Fleetwood, Dun Laoghaire and Dublin Port to Holyhead and Rosslare to Fishguard. The company carries over three million passengers on its Irish Sea routes each year, more than its rival operators combined.

Clinique launches New Comfort on Call relief cream

 

Released on: January 29, 2009, 8:00 am

Press Release Author: Mary Kate Trevakis

Industry: Retail

Press Release Summary: Clinique, leader in skin care innovation has announced the launch of its latest skin care moisturizer called New Comfort on Call

Press Release Body: Clinique, leader in skin care and make-up innovation, has announced the launch of their latest advance in skin care moisturizer – New Comfort on Call.

Clinique, at the forefront of skin care research, has launched a new innovation in anti aging and allergy relief skin care, with the introduction of New Comfort on Call – Allergy Tested Relief Cream, a moisturiser designed for people with visibly reactive skin.

Clinique’s New Comfort on Call enhances the skin’s ability to protect itself against external irritants such as pollutants and airborne particles. Containing the rare Citrus Jabara Fruit Extract, indigenous to Japan’s Wakayama Prefecture region where it is cultivated, this moisturising cream helps to calm the appearance of irritated skin.

Wakayama villagers believe Jabara can prevent pollen allergies from the region’s abundant trees. The villagers eat and drink it continuously to build their resistance to the onslaught of pollen each spring. Even at the height of pollen season, they report that allergies are rare. Clinique’s New Comfort on Call is the first and only skin treatment to include Citrus Jabara Fruit Extract. It is the heart of Clinique’s unique Enviro-Soothe Complex, including potent anti-irritants Mangosteen and Glycyrrhetinic Acid (licorice extract).

Dermatologist tested, and suitable for even very sensitive skin, New Comfort on Call:
– Gives immediate relief to dehydrated, dry skin and visibly calms irritated skin
– Helps shield and protect skin against extreme weather conditions while maintaining moisture
– Is suitable for all skin types that become very dry and taut when exposed to frigid climates
– Helps reduce skin’s visible reactivity and instances of cracked, flaky or rough skin with continued use

Protecting the skin, especially in colder climates, is critical in maintaining its strength and resilience. Skin becomes more susceptible to the harmful effects of common allergens and environmental pollutants, such as airborne particles, when the skin barrier is impaired.

“Aware of the changes in the environment, we wanted to create a product that would not only assist in helping the appearance of reactive skin, but would help skin to naturally cope with fluctuations in weather and humidity. We incorporated a water-binding protein that improves and rebalances the skin’s moisture, building a stronger, more resilient skin barrier, better able to protect against both extreme weather conditions and harmful external airborne particles.”Commented Dr. Tom Mammone, Executive Director of Clinique Research and Development

New Comfort on Call provides an invisible protective shield to strengthen skin’s moisture and lipid barrier function, helping skin to be less susceptible and reactive to certain external triggers over time. New Comfort on Call helps relieve dry, cracked skin while it softens, smoothes and improves skin’s texture and condition. This intense, luxuriously rich cream-balm moisturiser provides immediate comfort and all day hydration.

New Comfort on Call will be available nationwide from 1 February 2009
