LJM Developments CEO, Liaquat Mian, bullish on US and Canadian markets for 2014/15

World economies and global real-estate to follow suit with sustained growth of North American markets

Burlington, ON, December 30, 2013 - LJM Developments CEO, Liaquat Mian, puts the DOW Jones Industrial Average at 20,000 by the end of 2015 and foresees positive performance by blue chip stocks through 2014.

“I am bullish on North American stock markets as there is currently a lot of liquidity and room for blue-chip share price growth” says Mian. He argues that the stock market comeback in the US is just beginning with sizeable movements projected in most blue-chip stocks as their P/E ratios are still quite cheap, prompting many private and institutional investors to make strategic moves back into certain industries. In particular, industries projected to benefit from this movement, will be Technology, Oil and Gas, Banks and Financial services.

Mian believes there will be further growth in global markets in the next 24 months as the European Union and other western nations follow suit with stimulus spending. It is widely believed that America’s early movement to provide stimulus spending and interest rate slashing during the economic meltdown of 2008-09 led to the US economy’s modestly paced recovery, while other major financial centers in Europe and abroad still lag behind. Yet as the rest of the western nations further implement similar packages, there is room for growth in those markets.

On the real-estate sector, Mr. Mian touts “Canadian real estate prices will stabilize and post modest gains over the next 24 months. The US real estate market will have steady growth in the next 4 to 5 years”. Bank of Canada maintains interest rates at 1% and these low rates are projected to remain steady for the next 3 to 4 years. According to Mian, the Canadian real estate market is considerably cheaper than other major Western nations such as the US, Australia, Germany, England and France.

“Consider the price differences between a flat in London and a condo in Toronto and the saving and purchasing power is evident” he argues. Mian believes the real-estate market in Canada will remain strong over the next 2 years with the GTA, Calgary, Edmonton, and MontrĂ©al all in growth patterns.

Other major real estate markets have seen some easing from the low dollar days and signs of growth are starting to emerge. This is especially true in the US where certain high-profile markets in major urban centers such as New York and Miami are starting to see growth. United Kingdom’s real-estate market is also growing although at a slower pace than the US. The EU in general was much slower to act on stimulus spending but should be completely out of recession within 12 to 18 months, predicts Mian.

Mian also emphasized that “part of the comeback of the US economy has been through the government’s determination in a dogged Currency War that is still transpiring to this day”. According to Mian, the US has made it a mandate to keep the dollar somewhat devalued for a number of reasons, but chief among them is to keep foreign investment flowing into the US. These low interest rates combined with a lower valued US dollar has also helped fund debt payments. Without these measures, the economy of the US would face serious financial difficulties, believes Mian. The silent ‘currency war’ has caused some spin off activity in driving gold and silver down in price as well. Mian further emphasized that diplomacy with Iran will bring down the price of oil to $80-$85 a barrel within the next few months putting pressure on the resource-driven Canadian economy - though he argues these effects to be negligible. A notable offshoot of low oil prices according to Mian is that “lower oil prices provide stability in third world countries and increase the quality of living while decreasing unrest”. It is felt among many nations that the need for stabilization, regulation and legislation on pricing, on quality of life goods, such as oil and gas, wheat, rice and other staples will help control price imbalances and control Third World unrest.

Companies Must Restructure Management Systems to Achieve Greater Efficiency, Flexibility and Competitiveness

In times of crisis, adopting the Business Process Management (BPM) model can transform this delicate and momentous situation into a great opportunity for the future.

Woburn, MA, December 27, 2013 – AURA (, a global provider of Business Process Management (BPM) software, has announced that, during the BPM Eastern Europe Summit held in Bucharest on November 21, where AuraPortal was presented the award for Best BPM Vendor in Eastern Europe, an interview was conducted with the Vice President of the company and speaker at the event, Pablo Trilles.

AuraPortal has been distinguished with great advantage over its competitors by Ovum in its Decision Matrix report and by other renowned analyst firms.

Here are some of the most noteworthy points:

Q. Given the difficulties that companies are experiencing to overcome the crisis which, as we are seeing, highlights the weaknesses of the current economical model, what need do they have to adopt the Business Process Management model?

A. In good economic times all companies do well, but it is in times of crisis that the businesses of the future are truly consolidated. With the help of a BPM (Business Process Management) Suite, this delicate and momentous situation can be transformed into a great opportunity for the future, giving the company a tool that eases adaption and increases its resilience in dealing with the ongoing market changes.

Q. But right now companies need to confront the depressed market, the credit crunch and many other problems in addition to improving their management.

A. Without a doubt these problems exist but they are out of their hands; only management improvement is within their control. They need to be prepared to increase efficiency, flexibility and competitiveness, which can be achieved through the correct implementation of a BPMS.

Q. Does a BPMS project require a large investment?

A. Not at all. With AuraPortal Cloud projects of any size can be undertaken with no initial outlay for infrastructure or programming, and can be implemented almost immediately.

Q. You keep mentioning the BPMS tool. Is it possible to manage processes without the help of a tool?

A. BPM implementation would not be efficient without a tool to ensure that all activities from the different company departments and areas are performed correctly, at the right time and by the appropriate people. I recommend that you watch the video titled Short Call: How most companies work. I'm sure you'll be able to relate to how most companies work and how they can be improved.

For the Last-Minute Shoppers, Ecotech Institute Recommends 10 Eco-Friendly Gifts for the Holidays

Consider Plants, E-Books and Homemade Gifts this Season

Denver, CO, December 23, 2013 — ‘Tis the season for giving, and Ecotech Institute, the only college in the U.S. solely focused on renewable energy education and sustainable energy training, has released a list of ten eco-friendly gift ideas.

“While the holiday season is often used as an excuse for over-consumption, there are a great deal of excellent ways to embrace sustainable giving,” said Kyle Crider, Ecotech Institute’s Program Chair and Manager of Environmental Operations. “Whether you are creating your own wish list or struggling with what to give this year, here are some ideas that are fun to give and receive, with the added bonus of feeling like you’ve done something good for the environment.”

1. Solar and hand chargers. The busiest people on your list will love a charger they can use while on the go! Whether for an emergency or on the beach, this gift is sure to be used.

2. Heirloom plants and seeds. For the green thumb in your life, encouraging gardening and time with dirt can be a simple, thoughtful and fruitful gift.

3. Microloans to fight poverty. Microloans are great gifts to give in honor of someone. These loans help entrepreneurs and small businesses that don’t have access to traditional banking sources.

4. Donation to a sustainable charity. For the altruistic friend or family member, find an organization that aligns with their beliefs and make a donation in their name. See if there is a downloadable certificate online to put in their stocking.

5. Re-gift and consignment gifts. Americans in particular often use and discard items while they still have much life left. Gently used and hip vintage items are available around every corner at consignment and secondhand stores.

6. eBooks. In the age of the iPad and tablet, almost everyone has a way to read eBooks. Think about giving a gift card to an online bookstore – an easy, practical and always appreciated gift!

7. Subscription to local, organic farm-to-table program. Opportunities like this vary across the country, but the gift of fresh, local food is sustainable, delicious and much appreciated by farmers.

8. Make, rather than purchase, your gift. This idea is not just for kindergartners or the Pinterest-obsessed (although don’t discount the gifts from those groups). Whether a handmade card or a homemade craft, recipients are always touched by the effort put forth.

9. An energy kit with LED light bulbs and rechargeable batteries. Practical and eco-conscious, this gift offers less last-minute trips to the store and renewable energy for months to come.

10. Spend time, not money. As what could be considered the golden rule of sustainable giving, offer your time and energy instead of purchased goods. Whether you plan special time with friends and family at the park or you gather a group to plant trees, outdoor playtime, or earth-friendly volunteer work, these activities can be a gift for everyone.

“However you celebrate the holidays, be kind to each other and the Earth, they will thank you for it!” added Crider.

Shah Peerally, rated Young Outstanding Immigration lawyers in Northern California

The 2013 list of top rated attorneys in CA as published in the 08, 2013 issue of San Francisco Magazine includes Shah Peerally. This distinction is given to only a very small percentage of attorneys each year.

Newark, CA, December 22, 2013 – Shah Peerally, is a Newark, California based attorney practicing immigration law. Shah has seen tremendous growth in his career beginning with humble beginnings to becoming one of the most sought after attorney’s in Bay area. More than his professional qualifications, what distinguishes him from other lawyers in this field is his genuine compassion for people and his ability to cut across barriers and make them feel that there is hope for them.

Shah has constantly fought for the rights of immigrants and has tried to help them in various ways possible, whether it is through free legal clinics in churches, mosques or temples or talking to people through his law show on radio. Moreover his background as an immigrant himself makes him identify with the likes of others in similar position as he had been.

Shah thinks he is best defined as ‘street smart’ and has learnt more on the job than from any course. His genuine concern shows in the way he interacts with people and this has earned him not only respect but love from the immigrant community. In an attempt to educate people and make them aware of their rights and give them a sense of identification, Shah has invested in the Shah films which makes socially conscious films that talk of the problems of immigrants and also provides them solutions to a certain extent.

His dedication and passion for his work have been recognized on various podiums and Avvo, the national attorney rating service has rated him as 10/10 which is their highest rating level reserved for the best attorneys.

Shah Peerally, was born on in Mauritius, and attended the Royal College of Curepipe in Mauritius. Having worked with different corporations in Mauritius, Shah then moved to the United States where he and obtained his Juris Doctorate degree from New College School of Law, in San Francisco, California. He subsequently gained admission to the California State Bar too. Over the next few years, he began building his base in the legal fraternity by working in avenues such as litigation and business law for well known law firm of McNichols Randick O’Dea & Tooliatos LLP, in Pleasanton, California.

At a later stage, Shah joined the Law Offices of Virender Goswami as a supervising attorney in business and employment immigration. He was also appointed as attorney of counsel for the Immigration law offices of Minter and Ahmad in Fremont, California. Throughout the journey, Shah nursed the ambition of having his own law firm and in 2005; he founded the Law Offices of Shah Peerally. Today he is the founder and managing attorney of Shah Peerally Law Group PC, a professional corporation and under his capability the firm has seen the highest pinnacles of success.

Shah holds memberships in the State Bar of California, American Bar Association (ABA) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association, National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), and International Association of Professional Debt Arbitrators (IAPDA). Shah is also admitted in the Northern Federal District Court, Eastern Federal District Court of California and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Apart from his legal work, the Shah Peerally name has been associated with a lot of pro bono work that he has done. In fact whenever there has been a crisis for the immigrant community, the Shah Peerally name has been the foremost in terms of handling the crisis in an efficient and fast manner, so that the chances of the immigrants being effected is minimum.

Shah’s activities have been geared towards helping people in spreading of awareness regarding Immigration laws and their capabilities and use as far as immigrants are concerned. For this role of his in society, he has often been a part of the expert legal analysts for many TV networks such as NDTV, Times Now and Sitarree TV. In collaboration with this there has been coverage about his work in newspapers such as San Jose Mercury News, Oakland Tribune, US Fiji Times, Mauritius Le Quotidien, Movers & Shakers and other prominent international media both print and online. He also hosts weekly legal radio shows on KLOK 1170 AM.

For his passionate and dedicated work, towards conducting immigration related workshops Shah has been commended by House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Congresswoman Barbara Lee too. Shah has been a prominent activist for various immigrant communities and has always fought for their rights in whatever capacities that he could. Also he has been a regular participant in lectures and free legal clinics across the nation.

In what is an extremely rewarding acknowledgement for his work, Shah has been selected as a rising star of Northern California by Added to this, 2013 has seen Shah been bestowed with the honor of being selected as one of the ‘Young Outstanding Lawyers of Northern California’. This is a reflection of not only of his own caliber but that of his entire firm. In fact the attorneys of the Shah Peerally law group have been featured as legal experts on major international TV networks such as NDTV and Times Now for guiding immigrants during major immigration crisis over the years.

The most interesting part about Shah Peerally’s career has been his diversification into different platforms that raise the issues of immigration. Now with his own film production house, he makes films that will be an eye opener to the masses on issues that have been particularly troublesome for the immigrants. These films are an extension of his voice and concern as a lawyer determined to get justice for the immigrants to the US and to fight for their cause while also propagating for better immigration reforms. And in that Mr.Peerally’s work is extremely futuristic and aimed at a basic promotion of the interests of all sorts of voices across the globe.

Bryant & Stratton College Online Hosts Webinar: What Type of Resume is Best?

January 10 webinar will teach job seekers about the different types of resume formats, how to know when to use them and practical resume tips

Buffalo, NY, December 20, 2013 – The average recruiter spends about six seconds looking at a single resume, according to a study by The Ladders. That means job seekers have six seconds to highlight their skills and expertise, making the format of a resume as important as the content. For that reason, Bryant & Stratton College Online announced today a new session in its career information webinar series titled “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” The webinar will be held on Friday, January 10 from noon to 1 p.m. EST.

During the “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” webinar, attendees will learn practical tips and advice to improve their resume. Some of the topics covered in the webinar will include:

* The difference between chronological, functional, skills based and combination resumes

* When to use each type of resume

* How to take a resume from responsibility-focused to success-focused

* Dos and Don’ts of resume writing

The webinar will be led by Cindy Carpenter and Albanitza Mayoliz who handle recruiting at Verizon for the Call Center and Retail Sales Channel, respectively. Ms. Carpenter and Ms. Mayoliz are responsible for reviewing applications and qualifications, identifying quality candidates, coordinating interviews, extending offers and on boarding new hires. Both women are experienced recruiters with extensive knowledge in recruiting practices, talent acquisition, on boarding, hiring, career fairs, resume writing and career advancement and social media.

“There is an art to putting together a resume that most job seekers underestimate. A typical recruiter may have to sort through hundreds, or even thousands, of resumes to fill a position. A strong resume needs to communicate quickly and concisely why a job seeker deserves to be considered for a position. To do that sometimes requires deviating from the standard chronological format,” said Ms. Carpenter.

The “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” career information webinar is offered for free by Bryant & Stratton College Online and is open to current students, prospective students and others seeking information about how to write a resume. Those interested in attending are invited to register at

Add tags on Google Drive Files and Documents

Now, you can manage, search, and classify your documents in Collavate by adding personal or domain shared TAGs to the documents!

San Jose, CA, December 20, 2013 - Through the function that is released today, you can add maximum of 5 personal/domain shared tags to the documents and files that are saved in your google drive.

By adding tags to selected documents and files you can easily list and search through the documents. For example, you can create tags such as draft, processing, and processed and classify your documents according to their states in workflow. At the same time if you wish to classify your documents for personal purpose and work purpose, you can create tags such as personal and work to segregate the documents.

Through the extend filter menu at the left side of Home menu in Collavate, you can easily list and effectively search the documents with tags.

Especially, the tags that you have created in Collavate are also searchable in Gmail and Google Drive (web, mobile, etc.) like the screenshot below.

For example, if you wish to list documents that has “work” tag, you can simply search “work” in your Google Drive. However, this method will list not only documents with “work” tag, but also all of the other documents that have either word “work” in the title or body of the documents.If you wish to search more precisely, you can add “ctag:” in front of the name of the tag and you will get list of documents that has “work” tag added.

To add tags to documents, you must have privilege of at least “can edit” and because all of the tags are saved to Google Drive files, other users (above privilege of “can read”) can both search and classify.

Domain Shared Tags
An administrative user of Collavate can create and manage domain shared tag for any users within the domain. If different users create tags individually, there might be duplicated tags, so administrative user can make a tag and share it with all of the users within domain.

For example, if you need to classify documents according to departments, you can create shared tags such as sales, admin, development, etc and users can create other personal tags if they wish to.

Also, if the file is related to sales department, you can add sales tag to the document and person who actually uses the document can add other tags such as “processing” and “project” on top of sales tag.

Domain shared tags are yellow color and personal tags are gray color. Tags made in Collavate are also saved in the description of the documents in Google Drive and you can search through your documents using tags following explanation above.

Gmail users can use every functions of TAGs except the domain shared TAGs function,since they are not Google Apps users.

Introducing the All-New ParaZapper™ UZI-3 Now with 41 Frequencies in 8 Modes

The new ParaZapper™ UZI-3 model gives customers the good experience they expect from the best zappers, with performance that allows them zap with more accurate consistency, when they want, in a model they will be proud to own.

Pinson, AL, Dec 17, 2013 - David Etheredge, President Para Systems Inc., has described the new UZI-3 model as one of the two the best zappers, along with the ParaZapper™ MY. The UZI-3 delivers leading performance and quality, backed by Current Controlled (CC) technology in addition to a 10.5 volt output to more effectively kill microbes.

In addition to the increased frequencies and mode selections, the new ParaZapper™ UZI-3 model has a superior zapping ability i.e. able to kill microbes. The UZI-3 model has a distinct specific frequency feature that allows the specific frequencies in each mode to run for sufficient time in sequence with each other.

"Today, customers expect the best experience from their technology- they are counting on technology to kill parasites and microbes in them, wherever they are," said David Etheredge. "The new ParaZapper™ UZI-3 model gives customers the good experience they expect from the best zappers, with performance that allows them zap with more accurate consistency, when they want, in a model they will be proud to own."

The UZI-3 model is designed with 0.25 percent accurate frequencies utilizing many of Royal Raymond Rife's frequencies and technology that far exceeds the Clark zapper. The accurate frequencies make the micro-controller zappers such as this one to work better.

This model employs the constant current or current controlled output technology which is better, safer output that meets Dr. Clark's recommendations. Other cutting edge features found in the Hulda Clark zapper that are not present in other devices in the market include:

Selectable automatic rest period: this optional model presents an automatic 20 minute rest period between cycles. Though not one of the Dr. Clark recommendations, this is technology gives an upper hand in zapping.

Good connection indicators: in this product, the status indicator serves as s good connection indicator with the changing colors without reducing that output.

Larger contacts: this provides a greater amount of electrical signal to produce greater effectiveness than would be achieved with smaller contacts.

"We introduced multiple frequency zappers because they can reach more organisms, and the UZI-3 model is the latest in the market with amazing capabilities in killing microbes" said David.

One of the most popular zappers is the Terminator style zappers and these are very popular for their convenience. According to David Etheredge, "These zappers are limited because of two features. First, these electrodes are only about the size of a penny, which is way too small, causing skin burns, even holes in the skin from usage. Additionally, these electrodes are right next to each other, essentially shorting out much of the signal." People who have tried both zappers, while they still like the convenience of the Terminator, prefer the effectiveness offered by the best ParaZapper products."

The best results come from using a 4 point contact system with one negative contact and 3 positive contacts. In some cases, using this configuration with paddles and pads can almost double effectiveness and satisfaction.

Para Systems Inc., the maker of the positive offset zapping products as specified by Dr. Clark such as the ParaZapper™ CCI, ParaZapper™ UZI, ParaZapper™ CC2, ParaZapper™ MY, and the new ParaZapper™ UZI-3 model. For more information on pricing and delivery, visit Hulda Clark Zapper Co. at

New Project and Interview [Excerpt] from Artist Fawn Rogers

Fawn Rogers releases first mention of new, multi-faceted art installation for exhibition in Los Angeles and New York.

Los Angeles, CA, December 17, 2013 - Having traveled extensively in over 50 countries, with professional art exhibitions on four continents, artist Fawn Rogers has a habit of embracing the full range of human experience.

Since her first public installation in Puna, India in 1993 (a three-story site-specific installation titled “Jewels, Gods, and Dust”), Rogers has covered the map – literally and artistically – in her attempts to reflect and inspire experience. Other notable international exhibitions have included “Kokoro” in Tokyo in 1995, and “Earth to Hand” in Marche, Italy in 1999.

Her most recent installation, a commission of works from the Visible Light series, is currently on view at Alan Friedman, 350 N Canon Drive in Beverly Hills.

She recently sat down for an interview on her work with light. The following is an excerpt:

Interviewer: “You’ve worked in a variety of media, and in a variety of settings. Do you feel like there’s a sort of through-line, or central theme to your work?”

Fawn Rogers: “Human connection to others and nature. Sensuality. The interplay of light and the abyss.”

IN: “How has that been a part of the current series?”

FR: “Technically speaking, the substance of the art is pure light. There is a dichotomy between that work and the Garden Light series, which has lots of motion and energy, and is curated from photographic images taken at midnight. In a non-technical sense, the work came from a very dark place for me, historically. I was inspired to create this work in response to the abyss.”

IN: “What do you have in the works for upcoming projects?”

FR: “I just completed a proposal for a possible public exhibition at LAX. And I’m working on a fine art video installation that I’m very excited about. It’s titled “I LOVE YOU AND THAT MAKES ME GOD.” The project comes from a metaphysical place – is it empowering or disempowering? In some capacity, it’s part of a dialogue with theories of love as exchange of power. And it’s about evolution – Art through human history and who we are right now and who I am right now; both our evolution and an awareness of that evolution.”

Dyslexia Software - School and Home License Released by Ghotit

In the US, UK, Canada and other countries around the world, schools and organizations are required by law to provide people with learning disabilities equal opportunity.

Even Yehuda, Israel, December 17, 2013 - As such, these schools and organizations need to supply their students and employees assistive technology that can help them overcome their disabilities.

Dyslexia is the most prevalent of all known learning disabilities. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), approximately 5-15 percent of the population suffers from severe reading, and writing difficulties associated with dyslexia. Dyslexics spend significant time, effort and money to improve their written communication skills.

One of the main challenges for people with dyslexia is managing their daily tasks that require writing. For examples students that need to write homework assignments and reports or employees that constantly need to respond to emails. Dyslexics are challenges by both the quality of their written text (producing correctly spelled text) and by the time and effort required by them to produce this text.

Ofer Chermesh, one of Ghotit's founders, is a lifelong dyslexic. The struggle of producing readable text is well known to him. "I have no doubt that the people who designed regular assistance technology tools such as text editors and spell checkers did not have in mind people with dyslexia. Regular spell checkers are targeting people with good spelling capabilities who occasionally make spelling mistakes, not dyslexics like me. In addition, many dyslexics also struggle with reading documents or web sites and would like to see these reading abilities integrated with their writing assistant solutions," says Ofer Chermesh.

Regular text editors and spell checkers are designed to correct relatively minor spelling mistakes. In order to identify the correct spelling of a poorly spelled word, the context of the sentence needs to be analyzed. Ghotit offers a novel patent-protected context and phonetic spell checking technology tuned for people with dyslexia and bad spelling habits. Using these algorithms, Ghotit can detect and correct not only really bad spelled words but also misused words, words that are spelled correctly, but are written out of context. Ghotit also offers advanced grammar checking algorithms ensuring correct English grammar.

Though initially designed for people with dyslexia, Ghotit has demonstrated success for people with other writing and reading difficulties such as people who use English as their Second Language (ESL) and English Language Learners (ELL) enabling them to move to mainstream English Writing.

Ghotit launched its online free service in 2008. In 2009 Ghotit released Word Writer, its add-on for Microsoft Word for Windows. In 2012 Ghotit released its simple-to-use text editor, Real Writer for Windows and Macintosh.

In 2013 Ghotit released its Real Writer & Reader application for Microsoft Windows, Macintosh and Linux. The Ghotit Real Writer & Reader application is based on a simple text editor which incorporates spell and grammar checker and the ability to read out any text. Real Writer & Reader can be used directly from any text application such as browsers, word processors, spreadsheets, and mail applications.

Today Ghotit has announced the release of a site license. This site license will enable schools and organizations to access all of Ghotit solutions at highly reduced rates.

SAFE International Montreal Expands Corporate Safety Training Programs – Montreal Self Defense

Montreal Self Defense, SAFE International Montreal Expands Corporate Safety Training Programs.

Montreal, QC, December 12, 2013 - (Straight Line PR) - Montreal Self Defense, SAFE International Montreal Expands Corporate Safety Training Programs.

SAFE International™ is a leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Canada. It SAFE International has taught more than 180,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its Montreal Corporate Safety Training Programs to include Montreal, QC. The company is owned and managed by Chris Roberts, CEO, who is a professional teaching Director and self-defense instructor.

SAFE International™ Montreal Corporate Safety Seminars provide employees and management with tips and strategies to recognize, avoid, and handle personal security risks specific to their jobs. Prior to the commencement of training, SAFE International instructors spend time with each company learning about their employees and communicating with Department Leaders and those employees working in the field. It is through this personal attention that SAFE International is able to truly design a course that will have lasting positive effects for their clients and their employees.

SAFE International teaches that recognizing and avoiding dangerous situations is always the top priority. SAFE International instructors will address the daily routines and the risks that employees encounter in their daily jobs. Through role playing and discussion, participants will learn how to take common sense measures to reduce the risk of becoming a victim. The knowledge they gain can be applied to all aspects of their profession – direct sales, interacting with customers and fellow employees, travel and other work related transactions.

During a Montreal Self Defense seminar, clients are taught how to recognize different forms of verbal abuse, and how to defuse in order to resolve conflict without violence. Clients participate in verbal drills specific to their job related challenges. It is through these reality based drills that your employees will develop the confidence to handle various forms of abuse, without the need to be physical, while also preparing oneself in the event that it does. These verbal exercises can be particularly valuable when one might find themselves in an uncomfortable and potentially life threatening situation – entertaining clients, traveling, employee differences, leaving late at night by car, taxi or public transit, walking home, etc. SAFE International believes that not only is self protection a necessity, but it is now a form of insurance that will make your business more profitable and your employees more confident and secure.

The second phase of a SAFE International Montreal Corporate Safety course is the physical aspect which addresses how to React and Respond in the event that conflict becomes physical. Participants are taught basic, gross motor self defense skills meant to help one get away safely and as quick as possible. The principles of their teachings are based on how to react instinctively without having to think about what to do. This is not martial arts, but rather, real skills meant for real life scenarios. SAFE International is a complete course covering everything from A to Z in corporate safety training. SAFE International Montreal addresses the emotional, psychological, verbal and physical segments of violence in today’s world.

SAFE International Montreal Launches Montreal Women’s Self Defense Parties – Montreal, QC Self Defense

Montreal Self Defense, SAFE International Launches Montreal Women’s Self Defense Parties.

Montreal, QC, December 16, 2013 - (Straight Line PR) - Montreal Self Defense, SAFE International Launches Montreal Women’s Self Defense Parties.

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Ontario. SAFE International has taught more than 120,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include women’s self defense parties in Montreal, QC.

SAFE International quickly realized that women had completely different concerns, fears, and needs than males. Chris Roberts, CEO of SAFE International listened to their concerns and tailored something that was not only educational, but also met their personal fears. Men have no idea what women go through on an everyday basis from the stares and comments to the physical gestures and advances.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching women’s self defense Montreal, is how receptive women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows women to learn in a much shorter time. SAFE International always covers Awareness and Avoidance strategies which are based on one's daily routines. We examine what an attacker looks for, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation. One of the biggest topics we explore is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete opposite. We cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage. We then move on to verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer possible.  Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, we cover a few verbal strategies based on the aggressor and the scenario. The third step is addressing the physical aspect of Montreal women’s self defense. We begin with the advantages of adopting a passive stance rather than an aggressive stance.  We only teach gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario. We teach a philosophy of "Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the Predator. Another philosophy is to attack the head if all avoidance and verbal strategies have failed. This is only 30 minutes into the physical training and you can see how the self defense concepts are very effective. The self defense drills increase with intensity as the participants gain more confidence. This is very important as you don't want to terrify your clients right from the start.  It is important to build rapport with your students and the results will be seen as the drills progress. The following YouTube video shows how much can be learned in only 30 minutes of women’s self defense instruction.

YouTUBE video :

Forget Tupperware Parties!
Invite 6 to 8 of your friends for a few hours of fun, education and potentially life- saving instruction. Plan a meal, bbq, snacks, maybe some dessert! Be prepared for a unique Montreal Women’s Self Defense experience! What has made SAFE International so popular is their unique method of teaching with humour and sharing of anecdotes. Get to experience their simulated attacks in scenario specific situations such as at the front door, the kitchen, the car, etc.

SAFE International has taught more than 120,000 clients including mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities.

SAFE International has delivered training to over 180,000 people since 1994.

Marc Joseph will be teaching specially tailored Montreal Corporate self defense courses in the corporate environment, particularly to companies/organizations that are in higher risk professions including health care, real estate, sales people, etc. Self protection is a not only a necessity, but is also a form of insurance that will make your business more profitable and your employees more confident and secure. Workplace violence is a serious issue and SAFE has the ability to teach workplace staff how to deal with all aspects of confrontation including the Awareness/Avoidance stages along with Verbal Diffusing skills and physical self defense.

SAFE International Certified Partners also offer specialized Women’s Self Defense Montreal courses to women’s groups, including their Women’s Self Defense Parties.

Women will know their attacker fifty seven percent of the time according to studies. Women lead busy lives and need easy to remember tactics that work in real-life situations. They also need training that fits into their busy schedules. SAFE International Certified Partner instructors understand the challenges that women face and offer classes, group seminars and private lessons to fit into anyone's schedule.

SAFE International has become North America’s most popular high school course for both boys and girls due to the fact that they don't teach martial arts, but rather a practical approach to personal safety with an emphasis on recognizing and avoiding potentially dangerous situations. SAFE International High School Self Defense is taught to more than 13,000 students each year. Self Defense Montreal is now available in high schools throughout the Montreal, QC area. All instructors are certified through SAFE International™ and have a unique ability to reach the students in an effective and memorable manner. SAFE International has traditionally focused on self defense instruction for high school students. It offers 1, 3, 4 or 5 hour courses which can be taught over consecutive days or all in one day depending upon the school/ organization's needs. They offer High School self defense customized to the class needs and expectations. Each session includes discussion, role playing and a practical physical component ending with their famous simulated attacks in which the students get the opportunity to practice their newly learned skills on a padded instructor. These are real-world tactics that can be used by anyone against violent and stressful attacks.

Author Robert Thornhill has been named one of ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading

Robert Thornhill, author of the fifteen volume Lady Justice mystery/comedy series, has been named one of ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’, sponsored by The Authors Show, and was the overall winner in the ‘Fiction’ genre.

Independence, MO, December 14, 2013 - Mystery/comedy author, Robert Thornhill, has been named one of ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’. Thornhill was chosen from a field of hundreds of authors through a public voting process and was the overall winner in the ‘Fiction’ genre.

“It is an honor,” stated Mr. Thornhill, “to be included in this year’s ‘50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading’. I want to thank the fans of the Lady Justice series for their support.”

Thornhill has been dubbed ‘The Master of Hysterical Fiction’. His Lady Justice mystery/comedy series, about a 65-year-old retiree that becomes a cop, has been compared to Janet Evanovich’s highly successful Stephanie Plum series.

Lady Justice and the Vet, the latest volume in the series, debuted as #1 in Amazon’s ‘Cozy Mystery’ and ‘Humor’ categories and #8 in Amazon’s ‘Top 100’.

Lee Ashford, writing for Reader’s Favorite, writes, “Mr. Thornhill has an uncanny talent for bringing our attention to a serious problem while also entertaining and amusing us. Robert Thornhill’s house will one day be a National Monument. Okay, maybe that’s a little over the top, but he is a very good storyteller, and a very good writer. I anticipate with great relish each new release in his Lady Justice series. His writing is superlative, and his ability to inform and amuse, almost in the same sentence, makes him a consummate storyteller.”

The Lady Justice series is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and on his website.

Award-winning author, Robert Thornhill, began writing at the age of sixty-six and in four short years has penned fifteen novels in the Lady Justice mystery/comedy series, the seven volume Rainbow Road series of chapter books for children, a cookbook and a mini-autobiography.

Lady Justice and the Sting, Lady Justice and Dr. Death, Lady Justice and the Vigilante, Lady Justice and the Candidate, Lady Justice and the Book Club Murders and Lady Justice and the Cruise Ship Murders won the Pinnacle Award for the best new mystery novels of Fall 2011, Winter 2012, Summer 2012, Fall 2012, Spring of 2013 and Summer 2013 from the National Association of Book Entrepreneurs.

Many of Walt’s adventures in the Lady Justice series are anecdotal and based on Robert’s real life.

Although Robert holds a master’s in psychology, he has never taken a course in writing and has never learned to type. All 26 of his published books were typed with one finger and a thumb!

His wit and insight come from his varied occupations, including thirty-three years as a real estate broker. He lives with his wife, Peg, in Independence, Missouri.

Vendigram Redesigns Online Classified Ads

Vendigram is a new startup company which is determined to resolve the issues many people encounter when selling their goods online. A service set up through Instagram, they have built a system for users to effortlessly share their items for sale.

Nashua, NH, December 14, 2013 -- Vendigram is a new startup company which is determined to resolve the issues many people encounter when selling their goods online. A service set up through Instagram, they have built a system for users and advertisers to effortlessly and seamlessly share their items for sale in the US. The website and app allow users and advertisers to take a photo of their product with their Instagram profile, where the item then instantaneously uploads itself to the Vendigram website. The item can then be shared across the platform of today's leading social media sites.

The Vendigram team noticed three key attributes which, in the past, have made selling items online an uncomfortable experience for users and vendors. Oftentimes, sellers are hassled with a time consuming and junky user interface, as well as an inability to properly market and share their product. The startup is setting out to counter each of these problems, hoping to redefine how users and businesses will be able to sell and share their products and services.

Users are able to upload their photo to Instagram and add hashtags which define the title, description, and price of their item. Once uploaded on Instagram, the item will instantaneously be listed with Vendigram. The individual photos and products are able to be shared through popular social media sites, including Facebook, Twitter, and Google+. Each product may be renewed, keeping it on the front page for as long as the user wants. Just as Instagram allows, Vendigram supports a comments section on each classified ad.

Christina Moss Naturals Tells How to Have Younger Looking Skin Now Part 1 of a 3 Part Series

Christina Moss Naturals. By far, the fastest way to fresher and younger looking skin is an excellent and all natural moisturizer, such as the one by Christina Moss Naturals.

Los Angeles, CA, December 12, 2013 - Christina Moss Naturals. By far, the fastest way to fresher and younger looking skin is an excellent and all natural moisturizer, such as the one by Christina Moss Naturals, but today I want to talk about Facial Cleansing. This should be done twice each day, morning and night. It involves two steps (three if you’re wearing makeup).

Remove Makeup:
Surprise! Before you wash your face, if you are wearing any makeup at all, it needs to be removed, at least that’s the advice of dermatologist Dr. Jeanine Downie. The reason you want to remove your makeup before cleansing your skin is, according to Downie, ‘Many cleansers can't take off concealer or foundation completely, especially around the eyes and nose."

Do not use makeup removers that are loaded with petrochemical ingredients. If you want younger and fresher looking skin, the last thing you want to do is use chemicals on your face. Instead, use an excellent and all natural moisturizer.

To remove makeup, apply moisturizer to your skin and rub gently. Then remove the excess moisturizer, along with the makeup using a cotton ball or cosmetic pad. Use as many as necessary until all makeup is removed. The key here is to be gentle. Do not use too much pressure or pull on your skin. Treat your skin as gently as you would a baby’s skin.

Cleanse Your Skin:
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, you should use a gentle non-abrasive cleanser that does not contain alcohol. Wet your face with lukewarm water, apply the Cleanser using a mesh sponge, facecloth or your finger tips. Do not use anything harsh, and do not scrub your skin. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a clean towel.

Apply an excellent and all natural moisturizer, such as Christina Moss Naturals.

It’s that simple! Follow this routine twice daily and you’ll be well on your way to younger looking skin.
