New Book Release - Unintended Consequences: When Adults took the fun out of Youth Sports, by Jerry Norton

Unintended Consequences: When Adults took the fun out of Youth Sports, by Jerry Norton, helps make sense of today's youth sports and how to set it back on a course toward fun.

Ponte Vedra, FL, USA (January 31, 2016) -- Jerry Norton's Unintended Consequences: When Adults took the fun out of Youth Sports is a look at the deplorable situation in youth sports through the 84-year old eyes of photojournalist, youth coach, referee and league administrator Jerry Norton. Norton makes the case that youth sports have become more about winning than playing and more about adult egos than kids' enjoyment and participation.

According to Coach Jerry, the evidence is clear and the verdict is in. Adults--whether malicious or well-meaning--are deemed guilty of hijacking youth sports' most noble and worthy objective--fun. Win-at-all-cost coaches and demanding parents with unrealistic expectations are responsible for horrific acts of violence as well as untold incidents of child abuse that have become common-place in youth sports. The long-time youth sports activist offers constructive criticisms as well as solutions intended to make kids' sports fun again for all participants.

Stephen G (Jerry) Norton is the father of three sons and a retired aerospace engineer who spent nearly 60 years as a volunteer coach, referee, and league administrator and president. He is now a sports photojournalist covering youth, high school and professional sports. He has coached youth baseball, football, swimming, tennis and girls' softball and has conducted clinics for wheelchair bound and Special Olympic tennis players. He is the founder and president of Junior Development League Football.

Genre - Sports, Youth Sports, Children's Sports, Kids' Sports, Organized Youth Sports, Youth Sports Deterioration, Coaching, Sportsmanship, Youth Sports Problems, Soccer, Football, Baseball, Basketball

Joe Robaina is Awarded the First Ever Military Residential Specialist Certification in Miami-Dade County

The Platinum Worldwide Group at the Keller Williams Realty Coral Gables - Coconut Grove market center announced today that Joe Robaina is awarded the first ever Military Residential Specialist certification awarded in Miami-Dade county specifically to better assist Veterans, as well as active service members and their families.

Coral Gables, FL, USA (January 29, 2016) -- The Platinum Worldwide Group is a real estate team at the Keller Williams Realty Coral Gables - Coconut Grove market center in the greater Miami area and they announced today that Joe Robaina, a broker-associate and the team's leader, has been awarded the Military Residential Specialist certification after completing the first course offered for that purpose in Miami-Dade county.

The Military residential Specialist website (gomilres.com) describes the program as follows:

"The Military Residential Specialist (MilRES) Program offers real estate professionals the opportunity to help 'military' clients and their families while growing their own business in this important but under-served market segment."

"MilRES® was founded in 2010 by nationally known speaker Buddy West. After two years of researching the subject, traveling to military installations and interviewing military officers and enlisted service members, veterans, their families, Congressman and heads of the Veteran's administration, the MilRES® team was ready with an outline and plan to develop the class. This class was not written by a 'class writer or developer,' but from content from the military for Realtors® to serve the military."

Here is a link to a YouTube video by congressman John Carney on this subject: https://youtu.be/8fhC5jqMR2I

Mr. Robaina had this to say about his reasons for seeking out this certification:

"As a professional real estate adviser, I am always looking for ways to increase my knowledge and ability to help those who rely on my and my team for real estate advice and services. However, in this case, I was especially keen to the opportunity to become better equipped to serve the special needs of Veterans, active and retired military personnel because I feel a debt to them and their families for the sacrifices they all make to serve and protect us."

Mr. Robaina is currently preparing a series of seminars and webinars designed to inform the South Florida community about the needs and many programs available specifically for Veterans, active and retired members of the military, as well as the National Guard, Reserves, Coast Guard, Fires, Police and other branches of government service personnel line the FBI and CIA through his affiliation with the "Heroes" program which provides additional financial benefits through reimbursement of real estate commissions and reduced fee or no-fee programs offered by affiliated mortgage providers, and other service providers.

Anyone interested in participating or attending one of these presentations or simply learning more about any of these programs can contact Mr. Robaina by visiting his website: http://www.platinumworldwidegroup.com.

KastKing® Breaks Out Unique Fishing Reel

A new concept to thwart fishing line tangles wraps itself around the KastKing® Mako Spinning Reel.

Garden City, Long Island, NY (January 26, 2016) -- KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc. (http://www.eposeidon.com), has come out with a new innovative spinning reel for 2016 named the KastKing® Mako 3500.

Although the key features of the KastKing® Mako 3500 include an impressive line retrieve rate for its size, an exceptional drag rated at 22 lbs./ 10 kg from its oversized drag washers, and 8 + 1 shielded stainless steel bearings, anglers will appreciate the revolutionary design rotor brushes that prevent their fishing line from dropping down on to the spool skirt during retrieve. The exclusive rotor brushes on the Mako spinning reels reduce loops and snarls resulting in a more pleasant fishing experience. This unique antifouling spinning reel rotor design is not available from other brands.

The KastKing® Mako 3500 reel gets its amazing smoothness from 8 stainless steel shielded ball bearings plus one instant stop anti-reverse. A beefy reel foot made from aero-grade aluminum alloy and a deep aluminum spool machined from the same material that retrieves 36 inches of line per turn of its handle give the Mako spinning reel a rock-solid feel.

KastKing® Mako 3500 reels are finished in black and silver with a distinctive spool lip gold accent, have a right hand or left hand reversible CNC machined aluminum handle, a 5.1: 1 gear ratio, and a EVA flat paddle non-slip knob. A Mako 3500 weighs 11.82oz/ 335g and has a line capacity of (mm/m) 0.25mm/190m, 0.30/130, 0.35/100 and a monofilament line capacity of (lbs/ yds) 8 lb / 240 yards, 10 lb /195 yards , 12 lb/ 165 yards.

"Like many KastKing® products, the KastKing® Mako 3500 stands out due to its inventive design features," says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon, Inc.. "Mako's rotor brushes keep any line that has spilled over the spool up where it belongs and virtually eliminates line overrun loop fowling. There's nothing quite like the KastKing® Mako out on the market."

KastKing® Mako 3500 will have a MSRP of $69.98 and be discounted to sell in the mid-$40 range at http://www.eposeidon.com, http://www.amazon.com/kastking, and other select online retailers.

ABOUT EPOSEIDON:
Eposeidon (http://www.eposeidon.com) brings a fresh, innovative approach to anglers by offering quality fishing tackle products at the best prices and no cost, or low cost shipping.

ALIPAC Asks Trump Supporters To Contribute to Insurgent GOP Candidates

Raleigh, NC, USA (January 25, 2016) -- Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC | WilliamG@alipac.us | (866) 703-0864

With illegal immigration being the top issue of the GOP primaries for the first time in modern history, and with the leading GOP Candidate for President ascending due to his promise to deport illegals and Muslim refugees while financing his own campaign, ALIPAC is asking Donald Trump supporters to focus their donations on insurgent GOP candidates running against Republican incumbents that are likely to join with Democrats to oppose the Trump immigration plans.

ALIPAC has compiled an unprecedented list of Republican incumbents that have been documented supporting amnesty for illegal aliens despite the fact they are eager to convince GOP voters otherwise. This list is called the Cantor List and it now contains 178 GOP incumbents that stand with John McCain, Marco Rubio, Jeb bush, Eric Cantor, and Barack Obama in support of amnesty for illegal aliens!

"Since Mr. Trump has said he has no need for donations from his highly energized supporters, their financial support would be wisely spent backing GOP insurgent candidates that would back his tough enforcement agenda. The targets on our Cantor List are the men and women currently in congress that have blood on their hands for all of the deaths and destruction caused by illegal aliens that freely enter and roam America with government support due to Obama and his GOP facilitators and protectors," said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. "Regardless of which candidate you favor for President, the 'Trump Effect' is creating a powerful campaign coattail by which any GOP insurgent challenger can rise to the top of the race by exposing the amnesty support record of the 178 incumbents on the Cantor List! But it will not help America to elect an outsider candidate to the Presidency if these GOP lawmakers that support amnesty in Congress are reelected!"

Many GOP insurgent candidates have already emerged against GOP incumbents and made the incumbent's support for amnesty for illegals a top campaign issue.

Eric Cantor's support for amnesty for illegals, like the 178 new targets on the Cantor List, is the main reason he lost his race in 2014 to GOP newcomer Dave Brat. While Cantor outspent Brat 40 to 1, Brad defeated Cantor in a landslide with the help of his campaign manager Zach Werrell.

Adding to ALIPAC's ability to target GOP incumbents that agree with Democrats like Pelosi and Obama on amnesty for illegals, Zach Werrell has launched a new campaign consulting firm to help more GOP primary insurgents repeat the astounding overthrow of Eric Cantor. Many of the tips on how to accomplish such a feat are in Werrell's first of its kind book How to Bag a RINO.

"We need America to hear our call!" said William Gheen. "We need more GOP primary challengers lining up against Cantor List targets and using the resources and know how obtained from the Brat vs. Cantor race. We also need all of those Republican donors that would usually focus their funds on the star power candidates for President to focus their much need donations on the candidates and effort to change Congress by electing more anti-establishment anti-amnesty republicans in the 2016 primaries."

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, "Reinventing The World, We Can Do Better" by Ben Korgen

Reinventing The World, We Can Do Better, by Ben Korgen, highlights the stagnant repetition of ineffective leadership and how we can break free.

Hope Valley, RI, USA (January 24, 2016) -- Ben Korgen's Reinventing The World, We Can Do Better defines history recycling leadership spawning repeating cycles of prosperity, poverty, tranquility and violence.

This book suggests we can escape this by preparing political leaders for recruiting idea people, harvesting ideas, filtering out the best ones and subjecting them to worldwide referendums.

Humans will need fresh ideas. People tend to elect leaders whose image is a stable, solid citizen who can govern the ship of state with a steady hand on the helm. However, idea people usually do not make good leaders. Their most valuable thoughts pop into their heads at random in ways that prospective voters perceive as erratic and undesirable in leadership positions.

Science, engineering and technology have long histories of racing forward with little or no recycled effort. They have accomplished this driven by leaders who realize that maintaining the forward momentum depends on accepting the inputs of idea people.

This book addresses needs for a worldwide effort by offering a sample path for testing, adopting or discarding for something better. This path includes methods of world-scale recruitment of idea people, harvesting ideas, filtering them to winnow out the most promising ones and debating their value before worldwide referendums for approval and implementation.

Author Ben Korgen has had a highly varied career. He served in the US Navy, earned a bachelor's degree at the University of Minnesota Duluth, earned a master's degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, then coached high school football, earned a PhD in Oceanography at Oregon State University and had a long and rewarding career in Oceanography at the US Naval Oceanographic Office, the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and Tulane University in New Orleans.

Genre - History-Recycling Leadership, Idea People, Idea Creation, Idea Sorting, Linking Ideas to Leadership

As his situation grows increasingly desperate, a troubled hero learns those timeless lessons his own father never had the opportunity to teach him: love, forgiveness, and honor. But can he learn the final lesson - that though we cannot change our pasts, we can decide what type of person we want to be today.

Love's Lone Ranger, by Ben Korgen, weaves a crazy, zany tale of love, lust and Umptiscratch University football.

Hope Valley, RI, USA (January 23, 2016) -- Ben Korgen's Love's Lone Ranger sets as its undersized hero one Rudy Tripp. At age eleven, Rudy Tripp decides to become the greatest football coach ever.

Monaghan Medical Introduces Manometer Adapter to Measure Treatment with Aerobika® OPEP Device

New Adapter Tracks Airway Pressure Visually, Ensuring Therapeutic Effectiveness of Respiratory Treatment.

Plattsburgh, NY, USA (January 21, 2016) -- Monaghan Medical Corporation (MMC) (http://www.monaghanmed.com), a leader in the development, manufacture, and marketing of respiratory devices, today announced the release of a new Manometer Adapter for its Aerobika® Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) device-a drug-free, clinically supported device that reduces coughing and breathlessness, increases lung hygiene, and improves gas transfer. The Manometer Adapter serves as a visual compliance tool for the Aerobika® OPEP to assist respiratory therapists and patients in assessing respiratory therapy that calls for active exhalation.

The MMC Aerobika® OPEP device improves respiration by clearing mucus from the lungs through exhalation. OPEP therapy is highly effective in postoperative patients for airway clearance and lung hygiene, and for patients with chronic respiratory conditions such as cystic fibrosis. With the addition of a Manometer Adapter, respiratory therapists, clinicians, and patients can literally see with their own eyes how well the patient is using the device.

The Aerobika® OPEP device works by using active exhalation: The patient wraps his or her mouth around the OPEP mouthpiece and exhales, while the device uses pulses of air resistance to release mucus trapped in smaller air pathways. The Manometer Adapter allows clinicians to measure the pressure exerted by active exhalation to determine therapeutic effectiveness. It is ideal for clinical training, ensuring that the OPEP device is used properly.

The Manometer Adapter-which has an easy-to-read scale that shows green when active exhalation is in the target zone of 5 cm to 20 cm H2O-provides immediate patient feedback and confirms that the patient is achieving therapeutic pressure every time the OPEP device is used.

"Postoperative patients and patients with severe respiratory conditions needed a new kind of respiratory treatment," says Dom Coppolo, Vice President of Clinical Strategy and Development at Monaghan Medical Corporation. "That's why we developed the Aerobika® OPEP Therapy System-to help treat ailments with a productive cough seeking a non-therapeutic method of removing mucus from the lungs. With the addition of the Manometer Adapter, we now have an OPEP device that is easy to use and easy to monitor. The Manometer Adapter provides a baseline for active exhalation therapy so practitioners can measure patients' recovery progress.

"We are committed to providing products that ensure patients continue treatment and control their symptoms," Coppolo says. "Providing metrics to measure treatment efficacy only speeds recovery."

The Aerobika® OPEP is suitable for various patient treatments, such as post-operative thoracic recovery, lung volume expansion therapy, and atelectasis treatment, reducing the risk of pulmonary complications. The Aerobika® OPEP is easy to use, has no side effects or interactions since it is drug-free, and, with the new Manometer Adapter, makes it easier than ever to monitor therapeutic pressure levels.

KastKing Announces Affordable Mela Spinning Reel

Loaded with features and a spare spool as standard equipment, KastKing® Mela is set to grab market share.

Garden City, Long Island, NY (January 20, 2016) -- Long Island, NY based KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc. (http://www.eposeidon.com), is pleased to announce their new Mela Spinning Reel is in the fishing tackle marketplace. The 2016 model KastKing® Mela Spinning Reel is light, smooth, powerful, and comes with a spare spool at no additional charge.

Finished entirely in jet black, the Mela Spinning Reel's standard features includes: 10 + 1 stainless steel bearings, instant stop anti-reverse, stainless steel main shaft, brass gear, interchangeable right or left hand CNC aerospace-grade machined aluminum handle and aluminum spool with honeycomb design spool skirt, plus a spare graphite spool.

KastKing Mela Spinning reels are available in 2000, 3000, 4000, and 5000 class sizes. Line capacity on the Mela ranges from 82 yards of 10 lb test on the Mela 2000 to 240 yards of 10 lb test on the 5000. The Mela's light weight graphite body and all of its components are saltwater approved and carry a one-year warranty.

"The KastKing® Mela has more standard features than other reels costing many times more," says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon, Inc.. "People often mistakenly equate low price with poor quality. Time after time KastKing has proven that is not the case. People are paying more for big name brands because they equate more expense with high quality. We have successfully offered quality fishing tackle at an affordable price. Based on Mela's price point, we expect a large sales volume on this reel. Feedback about the Mela's performance during testing was exceptional."

MSRP for the KastKing Mela is $64.98 for the 2000, 3000 is $66.98, $68.98 for the 4000 and $70.98 for Mela 5000. It will retail through select on-line retailers such as http://www.amazon.com/kastking.

Jay Shimburski, of Fish Green Kayak Tours in South Carolina who is an Angler Consultant for KastKing says, "Mela is a nice reel that can be used for a lot of different applications. They will sell on-line for under $40. It's a bargain and a perfect fit for any fishing budget. I've seen a lot of poor quality reels out there in that price range; that's not the case with the KastKing Mela."

AsTech Consulting Security Expert Sees 2016 as "The Year of Board Accountability"

New Cyber Security Assessment Framework from FFIEC and High-Profile Security Breaches Will Lead to Shareholders Demanding Answers.

San Francisco, CA, USA (January 19, 2016) -- The year 2016 promises to be the Year of Accountability as corporate boards have to address serious questions about their companies' defenses against security breaches and cybercrime. That's the prediction of Greg Reber, CEO of AsTech Consulting, an 18-year-old cyber security consulting firm. Reber warns that board members as well as chief executives are going to be held more accountable by shareholders and regulatory agencies for inattention to cyber security weaknesses.

Last year the Federal Financial Institution Examination Council (FFIEC) released a new cyber-security assessment tool to help financial institutions move from a simple, "check-the-box" approach to security assessment to a more risk-based methodology, including specific milestones that boards have to meet at different maturity levels. This marks a new era in financial institution security oversight due to the specificity of the compliance framework. This move by the FFIEC puts corporate boards on notice as well as chief executives that cyber security is their responsibility.

"Data security breaches will continue to be more spectacular and more costly to business," said Reber. "What is changing is the demand for more accountability. In addition to requiring that high level executives step down (such as the CEO of Target), we are going to see more boards of directors held responsible for security failures. Cyber security is a problem that will continue to escalate, resulting from emerging technologies being applied to cybercrime coupled with a lack of due diligence by senior management."

Reber notes that there are multiple reasons that 2016 will become a year of increasing cyber security attacks:

1. Aging Internet applications - The World Wide Web is 23 years old in 2016 and many of today's Web applications are built using source code that was developed before security risks were understood. These applications propagate security weaknesses unless they are specifically addressed in the source code, or by other means.

2. The rush to introduce new technology - Emerging technologies are creating new cyber security risks that are not well understood. The Internet of Things (IoT), for example, is driving a rush to market and many times cyber security is an afterthought. Adding security to new technology later rather than making it part of the initial development will leave 'seams' for security flaws.

3. Malicious ecommerce - Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest have announced that they will be adding "buy" buttons to their sites. While this may attract more users and promote customer retention, it also will create new opportunities for cyber-fraud and identify theft.

Conversely, the good news for the coming year is that better analytics with more accurate predictive capabilities are coming to market every quarter. It is becoming easier to identify where hackers are likely to strike next, supplementing traditional enterprise security safeguards with predictive analytics and analytics-driven security methods.

"We have better analytics and predictive capability to head off more security problems, but companies still need to make cyber security a priority before they have to pay for the consequences of a cyber breach," added Reber. "It's more than a matter of adding more security detection tools; companies have to scrub their infrastructure to uncover legacy vulnerabilities. In the current regulatory climate, vulnerability discovery and remediation is much less expensive than paying the fines and legal fees, not to mention equity losses, that follow a systems hack."
