Topman Set to Launch New Range from Antony Price

Released on: November 10, 2008, 6:52 am

Press Release Author: Topman

Industry: Retail

Press Release Summary: Topman have teamed up with London fashion designer Antony Price for a brand new range called Priceless

Press Release Body: Topman, the leading UK men’s fashion retailer, has announced its partnership with Antony Price, one of Britain’s most important fashion designers who has been designing clothes for a number of high profile celebrities since the 1960s.

The new range from Antony Price and Topman will focus largely on suits, coats and shirts with an emphasis on tailoring and quality. The collection has a definite 80s influence in the form of cropped jackets, elongated shoulders and slim trousers but has still been created with todays Topman customer in mind. Shirting is available in four styles ranging from a crisp white tuxedo shirt to black and grey military inspired tops whilst astrakan and burgundy fur coats compliment this luxurious collection perfectly.

Antony Price was the man behind some of rock and pop’s most iconic fashion statements. He was stylist for the first eight Roxy Music albums, designed stage clothes for the Rolling Stones’ 1969 US tour and was the man behind the classic “Transformer” album cover for Lou Reed. He has also designed outfits for the likes of David Bowie, Steve Strange and Duran Duran. He currently works from his home in the English countryside, creating made to measure clothing for an elite clientele including the Duchess of Cornwall, while a small range of his clothes are sold in A La Mode, a London boutique.

Gordon Richardson, design and product development director for Topman, commented: “As a young, eager fashion student in the mid to late 70’s there were very few designers I could aspire to who understood the whole sexy notion of fashion and music that’s now so blithely bantered around. Antony was out there on his own. It’s a pleasure to be able to bring his whole rock and roll fashion aesthetic to a young Topman audience.”

The Priceless range from Antony Price and Topman was launched to the British media at a dinner and party attended by Bryan Ferry, Pam Hogg, Nicky Haslam, Peter York and others at the legendary Mayfair nightclub, Tramp.

The product that was reported as most effective for this purpose is Yeastrol. It turns out that this product was by far the easiest to use by test subjects who applied it. Nearly everyone who used it found that his or her symptoms disappeared in five-six months.

The reason why people had sought this homeopathic treatment as well as others is that they needed a effective cure for candida infection. Some of the patients may have already tried other products that were ineffective, so they wanted to try something else.

Therefore, many of them used one of the recommended products reviewed onsymptoms-yeast-infection-treatment.com. The results were so phenomenal for a majority of the customers who took the word of this review site that they made referrals.

Additionally, they have written their success stories for everyone to see. In addition, newer patients who have used the most highly recommended treatment for Candida were invited to tell their stories.

In addition, they also compared the highest recommended candida treatment with those that are almost as effective. It was important to most of the test subjects and patients which products they used, and they chose the ones they did for a reason.

That reason included wanting to be well as soon as possible. Otherwise, the condition could spread to other parts of the body and in some rare cases can cause cancer. For more information regarding yeast infection symptoms, you are encouraged to visit this page for latest information: symptoms-yeast-infection-treatment.com.

People who have committed to regular doses of treatment for Candida have been able to experience total healing. They did not even experience recurrence after five months of using the top rated product (Yeastrol).

One of the advantages that most people experienced when using one of the natural remedies reviewed on symptoms-yeast-infection-treatment.com is obvious. These products are proven to be side effect free and more effective than many others.

Kids Risk Serious Injury From Door Hinges, Study Warns

Released on: November 10, 2008, 6:18 am

Press Release Author: Warren Enterprises LLC

Industry: Healthcare

Press Release Summary: A recent study of more than 11,000 children published in the journal Pediatrics found that door hinges and frames represent the greatest danger to small children in the form of hand and finger injuries.

Press Release Body: (SOUTHBURY, CT)—A recent study of more than 11,000 children published in the journal Pediatrics found that door hinges and frames represent the greatest danger to small children in the form of hand and finger injuries.

The results of these injuries can lead to surgery, and one prominent anesthesiologist is paving the way in helping parents understand what that means for their kids.

Dr. Armen Ketchedjian, author of the book Will It Hurt? A Parent’s Practical Guide to Children’s Surgery, says that the injuries children sustain can often only be repaired through surgery, and that parents should prepare for that possibility.

Most of these injuries occur when doors close on a child’s fingers, a problem made worse in countries without legislation mandating safer door systems designed to help kids stay safe.

“When you hear that your child must have surgery it can be a terrifying experience”
saysDr. Ketch, as he is known to his patients. “It’s not easy to accept that your child needs an operation, but once you know that he or she does, it’s imperative that you help prepare your child as best you can.”

Will It Hurt? is Dr. Ketch’s way of furthering parent education in the days and hours surrounding child surgeries that result not only from injuries such as those caused by door frames and hinges, but also from developmental problems, childhood diseases and birth defects.

“It has been shown that children have an easier time with surgery and recovery when they are less anxious, and a great way to help that happen is to have the parents be less anxious,” says Dr. Ketch.“That often means educating them so that their fears are alleviated at least a little bit.”

Dr. Ketch’s book covers important topics for parents whose children need surgery, including:

• What to do the day of the surgery
• What to do if their child needs to stay overnight
• How to choose a surgeon
• What questions to ask of the child’s doctors
• What to expect as the child recovers from surgery

Will It Hurt? helps educate parents about pediatric surgery. It is an easy-to-read resource that will give parents, their child and their families the help and reassurance they need to make any surgical experience as stress-free as possible.

Listed in The Guide to America’s Top Anesthesiologists by the Consumer Research Council of America, Dr. Ketch trained at Cornell Medical Center, with a fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and a pain management elective at Boston Children’s Hospital. He has worked to help develop new techniques in ambulatory anesthesia, taught medical students and residents, and cared for more than 10,000 patients.

Dr. Ketch is also the author of the children’s book Golden Apples (winner of the 2008 Reviewer’s Choice Award), a beautifully illustrated book that aims to help educate children about the dangers of drug abuse.

For more information, contact the author directly at support@dr.ketch.com.

WARREN ENTERPRISES, LLC and author Dr. Armen G. Ketchedjian chose Arbor Books, Inc. (www.ArborBooks.com) to design and promote Will It Hurt? A Parent’s Practical Guide to Children’s Surgery. Arbor Books is an internationally renowned, full-service book design, ghostwriting and marketing firm.

(Will It Hurt? A Parent’s Practical Guide to Children’s Surgery by Dr. Ketch; ISBN: 0-9815373-0-8; $14.95; 172 pages; 5½” x 8 ½”; softcover with illustrations; WARREN ENTERPRISES, LLC)
