CRESTON, BC, February 28, 2011 -- This e-book contains over 91 beautiful full color illustrations of animals and landscapes. Famous Inspirational Words That Bring Happiness to Your Mind fulfills the author’s desire to create awareness for all people, including himself, of the opportunities we face when we continue to be of the world. Although we have to live in the world, if we strive to be what we want to be, we can receive inspiration from the written words that guide us and let us know we don't have to be of the world. When we make that change, we are like “brand new” (born again). Once educated with fresh positive ideas and affirmations, we get a new start and all that is past is forgotten.


Grace has brought us through the past, mercy helps us survive the present and faith keeps us looking ahead. “When you don't know how to find fresh ideas that can empower you or make you feel good inside,” the author says, “someone else can provide this information. That’s what gets you through until you learn for yourself. Education, fresh ideas to create a relaxed mind and a positive attitude does answer prayers.”

Perry Ritthaler proceeds beyond the limitations and borders set by others and help us explore truth and ourselves. Designed to promote inner peace, personal growth and development, this e-book will take you to higher dimensions in your inner happiness, positive attitude and thinking.

IAPAM's hCG Training Agrees with the Dr. Oz Show: Physician Supervision is Key


This week, the Dr. Oz Show showcased hCG for weight loss. The IAPAM agrees with the Dr. Oz show, that an hCG diet should not be undertaken unless under a doctor's supervision, and one should never buy hCG. hCG is only available by prescription from a physician.

Las Vegas, NV, February 25, 2011 -- The IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com) has trained over 240 physicians on how to safely and effectively offer hCG to their patients, and well over 5,000 patients have successfully lost weight on hCG using the IAPAM's Exclusive hCG Protocol (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/physician-hcg-weight-loss-training). The IAPAM is the leader in training physicians in the successful delivery of a medically supervised hCG weight loss program.

Proponents of hCG for weight management agree that the ultimate success of hCG in weight loss is linked to medical supervision and strict adherence to the medical protocol, originally outlined by Dr. Simeons in his manuscript, Pounds and Inches, (http://www.iapam.com/dr-simeons-pounds-and-inches-manuscript.html). It is the responsibility of health care professionals to: supervise, advise, guide and control their patients health - before, during and after treatment. The physician should establish which patients are good candidates for treatment with hCG, and together with these patients, set realistic expectations that allow for a successful outcome.

Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM, and a member of the expert faculty of instructors at the IAPAM's hCG Physician Weight Loss Training, is hearing from IAPAM members that, "medically supervised hCG weight loss programs are in tremendous demand by patients, and we are seeing a correlating increase in the demand for the IAPAM's training program for physicians." However, Russell notes that, "the rate of success for hCG patients that are not supervised during treatment, is considerably lower than those who are supervised by a physician who adheres strictly to the protocol." Mr. Russell also emphasizes that, "through education, like the Physician hCG Training offered by the IAPAM, doctors can appreciate the effects of medications, the implications of plateauing, the importance of vitamin supplements, and understand all the other nuances in the protocol that result in patient satisfaction."

To register for the next IAPAM hCG Weight Loss Training session, go to http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/physician-hcg-weight-loss-training, or contact Jeff Russell, Executive Director, IAPAM, at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 708 or via email at pr1@theiapam.com.

Luxury Travel Vietnam (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) to Show Its Expertise at ITB Berlin 2011.

Hanoi, Vietnam, February 24, 2011 -- With VNAT, Luxury Travel Vietnam (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) is showcasing its luxury tailor-made tourism services at the annual travel trade show in Berlin from March 9th to 13th, 2011.


"Vietnam is an emerging luxury travel hotspot in Southeast Asia" - Pham Ha, President and chief executive officer of the Luxury Travel Company.

Vietnam-based Luxury Travel Company is the first luxury travel operator in Vietnam which is known for offering a wide range of private tours.

"We are truly specialized in Mice, special interest tours, golfing, cruises, family travel, romance, wellness and spa, beach vacation, luxury adventures, gourmet, and cooking classes," added Tony Pham Ha.

Vietnam has established its reputation as a unique and genuine Southeast Asian experience. And now, there is ample opportunity to explore it in style and luxury.

"Whatever travel experience you want, name it we make it happen," he said. "Luxury Travel Company (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) serves more than 10,000 tourists a year, each of whom spend up to 1000 USD per day."

He added: “We expect good German traffic to Vietnam in 2011 after a recovery. German-speaking markets are among the top three from Europe, aided by a direct flight between Vietnam and Germany. And though Vietnam is better known as backpacker destination, efforts are being made to promote Vietnam as a luxe destination and attract upscale German-speaking travelers with niche tourism products.”

The company handled around one per cent of the 100,000 or so German visitors to Vietnam last year, a 20 per cent increase over 2009.

Besides appointing German native Jens Pickhan as its senior sales and marketing executive based in Hanoi and adding pages in German to its website, Luxury Travel is also training its tour guides and travel consultants to handle German-speaking travellers and plans to launch its first brochure in German at ITB Berlin next month.

The IAPAM's Botox Training can help Physicians Boost the Bottom Line


As the demand for minimally-invasive treatments continues to rise, specifically the demand for botox injections and other cosmetic injectables, physicians can capture this growing market and greatly benefit their bottom lines through expert botox training at multi-day seminars like the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium.

Las Vegas, NV, February 23, 2011 -- As reported by ASPS, there were nearly 11.6 million minimally invasive procedures performed in 2010, with botox treatments leading the way. Equally, Allergan reported that sales of BOTOX Cosmetic increased 11% over 2009.

The IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com) confirms this trend, noting that each of their Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com) sold out in 2010. Furthermore, while botox training (http://www.iapam.com/botoxtraining) is still very popular, more and more physicians are also appreciating that the key to a successful and profitable aesthetic practice is not just offering botox injections, but also other skin rejuvenation procedures including: chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and IPL/laser skin rejuvenation (http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com/laser-training).

In order to profitably add botox, chemical peels, lasers etc. to a practice, physicians need to incorporate these key fundamentals, as taught at the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium:

- Understanding the latest trends in aesthetic medicine and how to use them to one's advantage;
- How to develop a successful business plan including steps on how to integrated medical aesthetics procedures into a practice or build a patient base;
- How to perform aesthetic patient consultations;
- How to add the most profitable cosmetic injectable procedures, including: Botox®, and dermal fillers (i.e. Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Perlane®), chemical peels, and physician directed skin care;
- Engage in extensive, physician-lead, hands-on training in Botulinum Toxin Type A (i.e. Botox®), IPL / laser technology, and medical microdermabrasion offered in a medical facility, not in a hotel room; and
- How to maximize profits by offering the most profitable aesthetic medicine procedures like physician strength chemical peels, tailored to meet a specific clinic's patient profiles.

The IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium program is unique in addressing all of these issues. Physicians learn best practices from the IAPAM's faculty of physicians and experienced instructors. Botox training is a key component of the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, but the IAPAM also offers expert instruction in: Dermal Fillers, Microdermbarsion, Chemical Peels, and Lasers and Light Treatments & Hair Removal. Leading the training is a team of renowned board-certified cosmetic dermatologists, who will cover: aesthetic patient consultations, facial anatomy & musculature, Botox®, and Dysport®, product preparation, pain management, procedural protocols, and post treatment issues.

Two other valuable offerings of the IAPAM's Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, is that it is the only multi-day educational program that trains in all 5 of the top minimally invasive procedures in one weekend, and it is also the only program that offers one year of unlimited practice support to all registrants. The conference materials provided allow each attendee and their staff to review the key content of the aesthetic medicine conference. These materials include: the complete Building a Successful Cosmetic Medical Business training program (16 training DVD's, including: Mastering the Consultation Process, Guide to Selling Photofacials, Marketing Your Cosmetic Practice, Sell Injectables and Explode Your Business, etc. as well as leader guide and 5 staff workbooks.)

For additional information and to register for the upcoming Aesthetic Medicine Symposium in Scottsdale, Arizona, please contact the IAPAM at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 704, or visit http://www.aestheticmedicinesymposium.com.

Strategic partnership between riskart and IB Boost facilitates integration of riskart software with clients’ environment


riskart, has formed a strategic partnership with IB Boost, to focus on providing innovative and cost-effective integration solutions across the front, middle and back offices.

Milan, Italy - February 23, 2011 -- riskart, a leading derivatives consultancy based in Italy, has formed a strategic partnership with IB Boost, a leading technology and system integration consultancy, based in the City of London, to focus on providing innovative and cost-effective integration solutions across the front, middle and back offices.

The partnership will allow riskart to offer its clients a standard integration framework toolkit, based on proven service-oriented architecture, which removes much of the traditional difficulties in integrating systems dealing in OTC derivatives.

The framework automatically manages the normalization of data, guaranteeing compatibility with a wide variety of message types such as MQ Series, FpML, XML, JMS etc., and goes beyond typical data mapping to manage the lifecycle of each OTC derivative trade, enriching, aggregating and splitting trades on the basis of user-defined rules, identifying possible messages with missing data, queuing errors and passing from front to middle/back office only those trades which have been effectively completed.

This cost-effective and flexible solution to the challenges of system integration in the OTC derivatives area ensures that the whole process is much simplified, there is a much faster time-to-market on project delivery, and clients’ investments in system integration in the OTC derivatives space are preserved over time and can keep pace with the ever-evolving nature of the OTC markets and the complex and unique nature of many instruments.

riskart is always trying to stay a step ahead and partnering with IB-boost enables us to make a significant difference for our clients by simplifying the whole process of front to back office integration. OTC derivatives reform is upon us and is going to place a significant strain on clients’ IT budgets,” explained Franco Marinotti, riskart’s CEO. “Applying innovative technological solutions to the delicate area of system integration will allow clients to be better equipped to face up to the new requirements brought on by the reform, will increase efficiency in the still labour-intensive back office area and can have a direct impact on clients’ bottom line.”

Philippe Rioland, Managing Director at IB Boost, added, “We are really looking forward to working closely with riskart and their innovative Derivatives Management software. Our considerable experience in the field of system integration has taught us that the real value of integration lies in allowing clients to be confident in choosing their front, middle and back office solutions on the basis of merit, without having to be conditioned by technological and integration concerns. This is particularly true in the field of OTC derivatives. Our partnership with riskart means that customers can now cherry pick a best of breed solution that leaves riskart to manage the vital middle/back office part of their derivatives operation and at the same time removes the traditional headache of trying to integrate traders’ favourite front-office trading and position-keeping applications.”

America’s Party Mood Improves To Start The Year


South Whitley, Indiana, February 21, 2011 -- The general mood of the country has improved over the last quarter according to a February 2011 poll taken by Shindigz. A majority of respondents reported their life mood to be a bit more fun with a slight spring in their step.

The poll was sent to Shindigz email subscribers who reported at life mood score of 65.2, up almost two points since the last poll taken in November of 2010 which scored a 63.4. A score of fifty would be a measure of no change. 6,024 people were given the poll.

The Party Pulse question Shindigz asked was, “Compared to this season last year, would you characterize your life mood as…”

- A ton more fun! Every day is like a little party!
- A bit more fun – a slight spring in my step.
- No better, no worse. Same old same old.
- Not as fun – a bit of a doggie downer.
- Much less fun. This ain't no party!

The trend we saw develop towards the end of last year continues to show the positive sign that people believe the country is emerging from recent economic difficulties,” according to Keith Bansemer, Director of Internet Marketing at Shindigz. “Shindigz has started the year with strong sales of party supplies. The results of our Party Pulse poll seem to be capturing that behavior.”

Shindigz takes a new Party Pulse each quarter to track America’s party mood. The next measurement will be in May of 2011.

Shindigz is family owned and has been in business for 85 years leading the cause “to make life more fun.” Selling over 36,000 party items, from tableware to personalized decorations to custom favors, Shindigz.com is the complete party solution.

JUPITER, FLORIDA - February 20, 2011 -- Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that Olivia Alexander is featured in their most recent Artist Showcase. Light Space & Time was gratified and very fortunate to have the internationally recognized fine art painter Olivia Alexander participate in their initial competition and art exhibition “Surfaces”. This event took place in August 2010 and Olivia won the Second Place Award for her artwork “Solar Birth”. In creating this mixed media work, Olivia used specialized techniques that combined fiberglass and acrylic paints. “Solar Birth” is part of Olivia’s successful “Planetary Series”.

Olivia’s style is as she explains it is “expressionistic with a touch of the abstract”! She goes on to say “I don't paint photo realism but rather an expression and the emotion of what I see and feel about the subject”.

Her paintings contain many layers, water colors, inks, acrylics. In creating her art she will employ textured papers along with specialized techniques in the hope that she is able to communicate a Place, a Time or a Memory that sparks a connection between her art and her viewers.

From time to time Light Space & Time features artists who have previously competed and shown their work in the art gallery. Artists who have demonstrated a high degree of artistic talent and skill are showcased along with their art. Through this feature, the gallery hopes that the viewer will get to meet, see and begin to understand what motivates these great artists and their art.

Miss Bay Area Puma wins free vacation at Hedonism II


San Rafael, CA, February 19, 2011 -- Contact: Tom Andrews, 415/507-9962

Nancy Peccorini, 32, of Foster City, California, was crowned Miss Bay Area Puma at the world’s first Puma Party, for Cougars-in-Training, February 18, 2011, at Neptune’s Restaurant at Pier 39, San Francisco. She was elected by the Cubs in attendance. She won a free room at Hedonism II Resort & Spa at Negril Beach, Jamaica during International Cougar Week, March 27 – April 2, 2011.

Miss Nancy gives her occupation as “Puma Connoisseur” on her business card, “Specializing in Pup Acquisitions.” She is available to the news media for interviews.

The worldwide cougar craze is NOT limited to middle-aged women,” says Author Rich Gosse, Executive Producer of www.cougarevents.com. “Many women under age 40 (AKA Pumas or Cougars-in-Training) also prefer younger men. While middle-aged women are forced to date younger men out of DEMOGRAPHIC NECESSITY (the shortage of men their age who are willing to date middle-aged women), Pumas date younger men out of CHOICE, despite the fact that there are an unlimited number of older, more prosperous men who compete for their favors.

The Puma Dating Phenomenon is celebrity-driven,” says Mr. Gosse:

- Selena Gomez, 18, and Justin Bieber, 16

- Ashley Greene, 23, and Joe Jonas, 21

- Nicki Minaj, 26, and Drake, 24

- Carey Mulligan, 25, and Shia LeBeouf, 24

- Rihanna, 22, and Chris Brown 21 (no longer together)

- Lauren Conrad, 24, and Jason Wahler, 23

- Kelly Osbourne, 26, and Luke Worral, 21 (no longer together)

- Taylor Swift, 21, and Taylor Lautner, 18 (no longer together)

- Jessica Szohr, 25, and Ed Westwick, 23

RICH GOSSE is the author The Cougar Imperative: Why MidLife Women MUST Choose Younger Men and many other books about dating, including You CAN Hurry Love, Singles Guide to America, and A Good Man Is EASY to Find (“This is a great book!” Oprah Winfrey). His expert advice has been featured by ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, Fox, MSNBC, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Cosmopolitan, Business Week, Entrepreneur, Playboy, Playgirl, The London Times, The Australian, The New Zealand Herald, and hundreds of other newspapers, magazines, and TV/Radio shows.

Authorhouse announces the release of the popular book, Evidence of Insanity.

Pine Knoll Shores, NC - February 19, 2011 -- A storyteller’s view of a girl who was born with a “slightly squashed” head because her Mama rammed her Daddy’s Cadillac at Buff Chapman’s Texaco when seven months pregnant. The fetus was cheering her on all the way, “git him, Mama, git him”.

After her Mama’s water broke in cousin Wade’s squad car, Mama gave birth to her fifth child, a daughter. The girl was born with gas and a gift for laughter; finding humor around every corner.

Evidence of Insanity has been described as “a remarkable achievement...honest and direct...funny and gut-wrenching...poignant” by a Professor Emeritus at N. C. State University.

A story that had to be told and should be read by millions. You will find yourself laughing and crying at the same time.

Workshop on HIV Reservoirs Program Available After CROI

Toulon, France - February 18, 2011 -- The Fifth International Workshop on HIV Persistence is slated to be held in St. Martin, West Indies from 6th to 9th December 2011. Started in 2003 by Coordinator, Dr. Alain Lafeuillade, MD PhD, this workshop has grown in stature and is today recognized as the major meeting for those searching for an HIV cure.

Since its inception this organization has been responsible for conducting different scientific reference researches on HIV persistence, HIV reservoirs along with discussions on a variety of eradication strategies. Unlike other programs that have introduced a few sessions on these subjects, this workshop is widely acclaimed for its visionary approach, innovation and originality of its scientific committee.

The earlier editions of the workshop have focused on a variety of topics, ranging from the inhibition of HIV transmission to discussions on the biological and immunological challenges of persistent HIV Infection. The main focus area is to understand and eradicate HIV from the infected hosts.

At this workshop, a team of international scientists will address the reasons as to why HIV still persists in treated individuals or the so called HIV reservoirs. The main purpose of this workshop is to understand how this HIV reservoir is established and maintained in the body, what kind of cells are affected, what mechanisms are involved and a host of other related issues. This gives raise to the possibilities of finding new eradication strategies that will help in developing a cure for HIV.

Every two years, over two hundred doctors, researchers and scientists who have achieved significant breakthroughs in the field of HIV take part to this workshop. It provides an opportunity for these brilliant minds to interact with one another and share information about the different aspects of HIV. The presentations at the workshop cover all the latest research developments taking place in the field.

Dr. Alain Lafeuillade, Coordinator and other contributors from the scientific community will meet at the end of this month in Boston where the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections will be held. This team will work out a strategic research plan and chalk out the program for the 5th edition of the International Workshop on HIV Persistence.

For more information, please contact: Alain Lafeuillade, MD, PhD, Chair of the ‘International Workshop on HIV Persistence’. Department of Infectious Diseases, General Hospital, Toulon, France.
