the heels of the Top
10 names of men who are likely to cheat on you, DirtSearch.org,
a free background check that searches public, criminal, arrest, civil,
speeding tickets and more has just released the Top 10 Female Gold Diggers and
the list puts Jennifer on top. Identity theft has been on the rise with 1
in 8 searches coming up with a criminal past, and with that comes a rise in
'gold diggers' or women who are just chasing the money, legally or not. DirtSearch.org
pulled data from over 2 million background searches and looked closely at the
female names most often searched. What came back was petty crimes such as
personal property, vandalism and identity theft. Out of that list, the names
that come up most often in the top 10 are Jennifer, Jessica and Michelle,
followed by Lisa and Ashley. Here are the Top 10: 1.
Jennifer 2. Jessica 3. Michelle 4. Lisa 5.
Ashley 6. Amanda 7. Melissa 8. Stephanie
9. Nicole 10. Angela . So if you are a man dating a woman and
are questioning if maybe your girl has a shady past or are a qualified 'gold
digger' just after your bank account, here are ways to tell your girl is
a Gold Digger or make sure she is not on the 'dirty' list: 1. A sense of
entitlement: She thinks she is a princess and has no long-term or
short-term goals. Search her first name and last name anonymously on a
background search site such as DirtSearch.org.
Sites such as that one searches through online public records based on an
algorithm and aggregates data across the internet to find what is listed
online. 2. Trouble paying their bills: Gold diggers drop
hints that they may be evicted or their car might be repossessed when instead
they are buying $400 shoes and watches. 3. Age range: The
girl is 30 years younger than you but tells you that she is 15 years younger.
4. She neve r pays for anything. 5. She is into expensive and
lavish gifts. The girl asks you to pay for nails, hair and lavish trips.
6. They indulge in a pipe dream: She is constantly talking about
becoming an actress or a model. The company also earlier released 10
states where background checks are most prevalent. The Top 10 States are as

INVESTIGATION EXPOSES SICKENING ANIMAL ABUSE AT VEAL FACTORY FARM IN QUEBEC
Hidden-Camera Video Reveals Baby Calves Being Kicked, Beaten, and Left to Languish in Filthy Crates - Mercy For Animals Canada Calls on Retail Council of Canada to Ban Cruel Crates
Montreal, Quebec - Shocking hidden-camera video of workers kicking, punching, and beating baby calves, secretly recorded at one of the largest veal producers in North America, has been released by the animal protection organization Mercy For Animals Canada. The video shows baby calves chained by the neck and locked inside narrow crates so small they can't walk, turn around, or lie down comfortably, workers tormenting animals, and calves suffering from open wounds. A criminal animal cruelty investigation is now underway. Stéphane Perrais, board member for Mercy For Animals Canada, will speak at a press conference this morning: Date:
The disturbing undercover video, recorded at a Délimax Veal-affiliated factory farm in Pont-Rouge, Quebec, reveals: • Calves crammed into feces-covered wooden boxes barely larger than their own bodies, often chained by the neck, unable to even turn around or lie down comfortably for their entire lives • Workers violently kicking, punching, and throwing baby animals • Animals painfully stuck in the wooden slats of their crates • Sick and injured animals left to suffer and slowly die in their own filth without proper veterinary care After viewing the undercover video, Dr. Mary Richardson, a veterinarian who chaired the Animal Welfare Committee for the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association, stated: "The conditions that the calves live in are both physically and mentally abusive. No animal should be so physically limited in its movement." Confining calves to tiny veal crates is considered inherently so cruel the practice has been outlawed in eight
Following the investigation, Mercy For Animals Canada immediately submitted a detailed legal complaint to the Montreal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the agency responsible for enforcing animal welfare laws, calling for animal cruelty charges to be filed against the company, managers, and workers for viciously beating and neglecting animals in violation of the Criminal Code of Canada.
Mercy For Animals Canada is calling on the Retail Council of Canada, which represents all of the major grocery chains in the country, to implement a new policy that prohibits the cruel confinement of calves in restrictive veal crates in its member grocers' supply chains - a policy already supported by Costco, Metro, Sobeys and Loblaw. Last year, following a Mercy For Animals Canada investigation at a pig factory farm, the Retail Council of Canada committed to ending the extreme confinement of pregnant pigs in gestation crates. MFA Canada is now urging the Retail Council of Canada to give the same consideration to calves raised for veal. "Science and common sense tell us that animals with legs should be given at least enough room to walk and exercise," said Twyla Francois, Mercy For Animals Canada's director of investigations. "The Canadian veal industry treats baby calves like mere meat-producing machines. Their short lives are filled with misery, violence, and deprivation. It's time for the Retail Council of Canada to take a stand against this horrific animal abuse by ending the use of inherently cruel veal crates in its member supply chains."

On Top: Learning to Crawl Again and Finding Out You Have the Strength to
New York, NY, April 22, 2014 - Deborah Schwartz's Woman On Top is the triumphant story of a young widow whose journey to find herself takes readers on an entertaining, yet thought-provoking ride. Inspired by her true-life story, Schwartz' Woman on Top is a battle cry for any woman who ever let someone make her feel less than worthy. Further, it's a lesson to us all that we hold the power to reach any summit. It is often said that, it's not the hills or mountains you have to climb that gives you strength; it's the challenge you face on your journey by having a pebble in your shoe. In protagonist Kate's case, the pebble felt more like a boulder. She was thrown into single-dom after her husband died from cancer. After a few years, she ventures back into the dating scene and meets Len, a Wall Street banker. What Kate discovers is a cocky narcissist who quickly tries to control every aspect of her life. Readers will scream in frustration at Len's controlling behavior while high-fiving Kate's efforts and subsequent achievements to finding herself again. She shows us that we are truly in-charge of our destiny, and (in reflection) that there are more important things in life than what kind of car you drive. In her stand-up-and-applaud road to independence, she reaches the highest heights. Literally, with a rewarding climb of
A Business World Massacre – What Can Happen
When Government Needs a Scapegoat By: Larry Katzen - It remains one of the greatest travesties in the history of American business: In 2001, the 85,000 employees of one of the world’s largest accounting firms began losing their jobs in droves. Their employer had become tainted by its loose association with Enron Corp., a financial house of cards that was imploding and taking with it billions of dollars in employee pensions and shareholder investments. In 2002, accounting firm Arthur Andersen was convicted of charges related to Enron’s fraudulent practices. The charges had nothing to do with the quality of their auditing – or any of Enron’s illicit practices. The conviction was appealed, and in 2005, the U.S. Supreme Court struck it down in a unanimous vote. But the damage had already been done. To date, despite millions of records being subpoenaed, there is no evidence Arthur Andersen ever did anything wrong. Still, perceptions are everything: Most people are not aware that the accounting firm, which led the industry in establishing strict, high standards, became a government scapegoat. When I speak to groups across the country, I ask the following questions. Below are the typical responses I receive – and the actual facts.
1. What do you remember about Arthur Andersen? Typical Response: They were the ones that helped facilitate the Enron fraud. They deserved what they got. Fact: Arthur Andersen was the largest and most prestigious firm in the country. It was considered the gold standard of the accounting profession by the business community.
2. For what was Arthur Andersen indicted? Typical Response: They messed up the audit of Enron and signed off on false financial statements. Fact: They were indicted for shredding documents. These documents were drafts and other items that do not support the final product. All accounting firms establish policies for routinely shredding such documents.
3. How long was it between the Enron blowup and when Arthur Andersen went out of business? Typical Response: One to three years. Fact: The largest accounting firm in the world was gone in 90 days.
4. Was the indictment upheld? Typical Response: Yes, that is why they went out of business. Fact: No. The Supreme Court overruled the lower court in a 9-0 decision, and came to the conclusion within weeks, making it one of their quickest decisions ever.
5. How many people lost their jobs as a result of the false accusations? Typical Response: Have no idea, but the partners got what they deserved. Fact: Eighty-five thousand people lost their jobs and only a few thousand were partners. Most were staff people and clericals who made modest sums of money.
6. Who benefited from Arthur Andersen going out of business? Typical Response: Everyone – we finally got rid of those crooks and made a statement to the rest of business to operate ethically. Facts: It was not the Arthur Andersen people; they lost their jobs. It was not the clients; they had to go through the stress and expense of finding a new auditing firm. It was not the business world in general: It now has fewer firms from which to choose and rates increased. It was their competitors who benefited– they got Andersen’s best people and clients and were able to increase their rates and profitability.
7. What accounting firms now have ex Arthur Andersen partners playing leadership roles in their firms? Typical Response: None Facts: The “big four,” all the large middle-tier firms and many small firms have former Arthur Andersen partners in leadership positions. Finally, many members of the new Public Accounting oversight Board (PCAOB), which oversees these firms, now have former Arthur Andersen people involved in reviewing the quality of these firms. About Larry Katzen: Larry Katzen, author of “And You Thought Accountants were Boring – My Life Inside Arthur Andersen,” (www.LarryRKatzen.com), worked at Arthur Andersen from 1967 to 2002, quickly rising through the ranks to become a partner at age 30. His new memoir details the government’s unjust persecution of a company known for maintaining the highest standards.
The 3 Major Sins of Sales Management
CEOs Must be Aware of How They’re Using Key People, Says Sought-After Speaker
It’s a simple fact of business: Without sales, no one else downstream can do their jobs, says veteran sales manager and business speaker Jack Daly. Because of how vital sales are to a company, CEOs frequently tend to misuse their best people, he says. “There are three sins that minimize the sales management role, which ultimately holds the company back from achieving its growth,” says Daly, author of “Hyper Sales Growth,” (www.jackdaly.net). “When they misallocate key players, small to medium-sized businesses tend to go into one of two directions. They either stay small to medium, or they go out of business. When you ask why, it most often comes down to a violation of one or more of these three sins of sales management. Having the right people in important spots is absolutely the secret to success.” To ensure continued growth, Daly says the people at the top must avoid the following: Sin No. 1 … is committed when the CEO or owner wears the hat of the sales manager. If you are doing that, you’re essentially relegating both the CEO job and the sales manager job to part-time status. In effect, you’re saying, “I’m going to grow my business part time.” If you want your business to grow, you must grow your sales force, and you need someone doing that full time. Sin No. 2 … is to make the best salesperson the sales manager. It can work, but seldom does. The usual scenario, however, is you lose your best salesperson and get a mediocre sales manager. The role and the responsibilities are entirely different. A salesperson’s role is to win new customers and nurture the ones you have, thereby differentiating you from your competitors. The sales manager’s job involves recruiting, training, coaching, building and developing. Being effective at one of those jobs is not an indicator that a person will be equally effective in the other. Salespeople are used to immediate gratification, involving a deal-to-deal routine. Sales managers, by contrast, must take their time to recruit, train and coach. A salesperson might easily become disenchanted with the pace of the new role and look for another sales job, perhaps with your competitor. Sin No. 3 … is probably the most grievous of all. The best salesperson is made a sales manager, but he or she is also required to continue booking business. It’s absolutely ruinous. The person’s focus will remain fixed on the customer, as that is how their compensation is driven. Accordingly, the sales team will be underserved, missing the opportunity for leveraged growth. The key to growth is to put the right people in the right places, Daly says. “Since sales drive business, it’s essential to match skills and personality types to the jobs, and to ensure the people can focus on their roles,” Daly says. About Jack Daly - Jack Daly, author of “Hyper Sales Growth,” (www.jackdaly.net), is an experienced and inspirational sales trainer and sales coaching expert who, as a sought-after speaker, motivates audiences to take action in the areas of sales planning and training, and customer loyalty. Daly draws upon more than 20 years of business experience, with several successful stints as the CEO of fast-growing companies. He has a Bachelor’s in Science degree in accounting, a Master of Business Administration degree, was a Captain in U.S. Army and is an accomplished author with audio and DVD programs.
Your Upward Journey
– A Guide To Transforming Life's Obstacles Into Success Stories
Miami, FL, April 2014 – Passionate about people, Patricia Périssé Bochi's vision is to help others realize that no matter what their circumstances are in life, change from within is possible! She knows from personal experience that it is not the stumbling blocks and tragedies in life that define us but how we react to them. Your Upward Journey: It's Easier Than You Think (Middle River Press), is the inspiring story of Patricia's life experiences and the coping tools she developed that enabled her to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds in order to live a truly fulfilling life. At age 15, Patricia broke her back in an automobile accident that left her a paraplegic. Since her career goal at that time was to be a classical ballerina, she learned at a very early and difficult stage in life that she would either have to reinvent herself or become a victim of her circumstances. The latter was not an option. Patricia got married at age 19, had two children, and graduated cum laude from law school. She became a solo practitioner almost nine years ago with only one client waiting in the wings, but today Patricia heads up a flourishing law firm and has become a respected writer and contender in the self-help genre. Your Upward Journey, part memoir/part life manual, is unlike any other self-help book. It is not the work of a psychologist, therapist, or psychiatrist writing from an outside point of view. It is a unique and compelling compilation of personal experiences and life-developed tools that can help anyone overcome obstacles, or wanting to make a radical change but not knowing where to begin. It offers rare insight that can be applied to literally any situation; a physical disadvantage, a negative experience, a life that's become stagnant, or one where a hidden personal barrier prevents a person from reaching their goals and dreams. The inspiring and motivating pearls of wisdom dotted throughout this book help readers find their true self and learn to look at life from a different perspective. In conjunction with her book, Patricia Bochi plans to lead self-help seminars involving interactive audience participation that will energize attendees and ignite in them the courage and motivation necessary to change their way of thinking, be proud of who they are, and look at life in a more positive way. Ms. Bochi obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the State University of New York and her Juris Doctor from the University of Miami School of Law at
It’s a fact: people are the biggest asset in every organization.
a fact: people are the biggest asset in every organization. If you do not
treat them as such, your bottom line inevitably suffers – it’s that
simple. “Leadership is about people. Take care of your people and your
people will take care of your bottom line,” says Bob Urichuck who, along
with his son Dave Urichuck, works with organizations to get bottom line
results through an ongoing disciplined approach to sales, motivation,
leadership and teamwork. So how do you extract optimal morale,
productivity, and effectiveness from your employees? Enter their new book,
Motivate Your Team in 30 Days, an interactive guide with self-discovery
exercises and engagement and empowerment strategies that equip leaders to
motivate their teams.. The first and most crucial lesson? You can’t actually
motivate anyone to do anything – you must create an environment in which
people motivate themselves. “As a leader you need to facilitate, and not
dictate, to make it easier for others,” Bob points out. “You do that by
engaging and empowering your team to identify a level of effectiveness
percentage rating, or a baseline to work from. Then, you have them recognize
positive contributing factors, identify areas of improvement – more
specifically what is under their control, brainstorm solutions, and leave it
to them to implement those solutions, as they own those solutions, not you.”
Motivate Your Team in 30 Days provides a step-by-step process with daily
workday, or weekday, activities, first for the team leader and then as a
facilitator for the team members. It is ideal for all leaders and future
leaders, from leading oneself to teams of all sizes, from entrepreneurs to
small businesses to Fortune 500 companies. Through the engaging,
insightful process that Motivate Your Team in 30 Days teaches, readers will
learn how to: Motivate yourself before others Prepare
to facilitate a Team Effectiveness Meeting and Team Effectiveness Day
Identify what you and your team want, and turn those desires into achievable
goals And finally, turn those goals into a reality “The
key is to stay disciplined and do each day’s activity as it comes up. By
doing so, we guarantee you will have a highly motivated team one month after
you start the process,” Bob adds. Bob Urichuck is an internationally
renowned Velocity Selling Specialist, the creator of the “Buyer Focused”
Velocity Selling System and a virtual sales training platform,
VelocitySelling.com. With some fifty years of sales experience, ranging from
door-to-door sales to corporate high-value boardroom sales, he has accumulated
a wealth of experience in selling to individuals and big corporations. For the
last twenty years, Bob has inspired, educated and empowered Fortune 500
companies and mid-sized businesses to increase the velocity of their sales and

Productions Coracole and l’Orchestre Philharmonique Équitable With the participation of La Boîte Vocale "Present" Romance and Revolution: Music from Les Misérables & More. Conductor: André Gauthier; Stage Director: Coralie Heiler Vocal Director: Marc Deslandes; Director, Vocal Ensemble: Frédéric Vogel In English- Sunday, May 11 at and Saturday, May 24 at In French- Friday, May 2 at and Sunday, May 25 at “If you wish to understand what revolution is, call it progress; and if you wish to understand what progress is, call it tomorrow.”- Cosette, Les Misérables
April 2014 – Productions Coracole and l’Orchestre Philharmonique Équitable
are thrilled to present the beloved songs from Les Misérables, along with
music from the Romantic era.
For Stage Director Coralie Heiler, who plays Cosette in the French version of the show and is the Artistic Director of Productions Coracole, this is a dream come true, “Working with a live orchestra has always been a dream of mine and this is the perfect project. I adore the music and the story of Les Misérables. These songs are treasured, and the fundamental narrative of adversity, passion and justice, is as recognizable today as in the time of Victor Hugo’s novel.”
Besides being impassioned by the music, Vocal Director Marc Deslandes, who has worked with Productions Coracole on other shows as musical director, was inspired by the colossal challenge ahead of him, “I have wanted to work on a project of this scale for a long time, encompassing all aspects of a production at once; song and musical interpretation, directing, and acting. Productions Coracole pushes me to be very versatile and I love it.” For him, this music is an orchestral masterpiece, “The contemporary music, written for orchestra and voice by Claude-Michel Schonberg, showcases a variety of slow and fast movements, as well as a range of sounds including strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, guitars, piano, voice and choir.” Deslandes can’t hide his enthusiasm, “Though I have been working non-stop on this huge piece of music, teaching thirty people to sing in two languages, I am more motivated than ever.”
André Gauthier, conductor for l’Orchestre Philharmonique Équitable (OPÉ), was drawn to the music, an equal balance of romantic-era ballads and military styles- glorious, stirring and emotional. Gauthier would like audiences to be touched by Javert’s transformation, “If someone as closed-minded as him could change, then to some extent, anyone could. The characters’ evolution throughout the story line resonates strongly for me.” Concertmaster Jessyca Pitt, who is also the president of OPÉ, is proud of the orchestra’s collective efforts, “Every musician has something demanding to play and has risen to our ambitious goals.”
Cast members are excited to be part of this production. Kenny Stein, singing the role of Valjean in French, feels as though he has been preparing for this show his whole life. For him, the artistic collaboration between Anglophones and Francophones is so important in the context of our current political climate, “Our cast is a 50/50 mix of the two languages, and the majority of us are cast in both versions, which means we spend rehearsals together. We have also made an extra effort to socialize outside of rehearsal. The time we spend getting to know each other as individuals directly contributes to the fight against intolerance; it cultivates understanding and acceptance of each other.” Alisha Ruiss, playing Fantine in the English version, hopes people leave the theatre wanting to be better citizens, “I would like audiences to think about sacrificing for the sake of others, like Fantine, Valjean, Eponine and many other characters.”

Compelling Look at Childhood Trauma
The novel opens with a troubled teenager named Chris. Struggling with a flood of emotions toward his mother's ex-boyfriend, he chooses to resolve things with lethal violence. When Chris's mother is also found brutally murdered, Detective William Hursel is left with only a handful of clues. While the media obsesses over Chris's infatuation with the violent lyrics of a popular heavy-metal band, Detective Hursel searches for a deeper motive. Links between Chris and the band's lead singer, Josh, soon emerge, drawing the detective into a web of crime and past family violence. Framed by scenes of rock-star glamour, political intrigue, and police adventure, Chris and Josh's stories converge at the intersections of religion and psychology, love and revenge, destruction and redemption. M. Dolon Hickmon is a writer, activist, and a survivor of religious child maltreatment. His writings can be found on news websites like AlterNet, Salon, and the Spiritual Abuse Survivor's Blog Network, and his opinion pieces have appeared in newspapers such as the Scotsman, the South Lake Press, and the Bainbridge (GA) Post-Searchlight. Hickmon's original research continues to be cited by many and was included in a 2010 civil rights presentation to a committee of the US Congress. His hobbies include reading, songwriting, and playing acoustic and electric guitar. He lives with his wife and their daughter.

Sugar: The Secret Skin Assassin!
The Good, The Bad and the Ugly of a Favorite Food Pastime By: Ron Cummings
we sure like our sugar. After all, what’s not to like? I mean, what’s
better with a glass of milk than a couple of chocolate chip cookies? Imagine
that it’s the end of a long, hard day; you get home and put on your favorite
TV show, kick your feet up and dig in to a bowl of your favorite ice cream
covered in an assortment of decadent toppings. And, for millions of us,
that mid-day candy bar is just a regular part of life. Let’s face it – our
favorite sugar-laden goodies are just flat out pleasing, comforting and of
course delicious! Sugar satisfies one of our favorite desires: instant
gratification. We love sugar; we crave it. It’s just plain good. The
Bad With that being said, there’s not a single one of us who
doesn’t know that sugar, especially in excess, is bad for us. It’s
terrible for our teeth, destroys our mood, makes us gain weight and severely
alters our overall blood chemistry. We have to admit that sugar simply ruins
our health. Naturally, we continue to indulge our sugar obsession, despite the
detrimental consequences of eating sugar. We can all agree life is too short
not to enjoy our favorite dessert, right? – Lots of things are bad for us,
so what’s the big deal? If enjoying sugar means an extra few pounds
around my midsection, then I guess that’s okay, right? Some of us think
that, maybe, if I just watch my sugar intake a little and not go too crazy,
then I’ll be able to enjoy the good of sugar and, maybe, the bad of sugar
won’t really affect me too much. When it comes to sugar, most of us are
willing to take the good with the bad, because we want to have our cake and
eat it too. By now, most of us have been bombarded by endless antisugar
messages. There are always new studies on how sugar adversely affects our
health, our kids’ attention spans, and the obesity problem that seems to be
getting worse by the year. No matter what anti-sugar messages we read,
see and hear, we simply refuse to give up our beloved sugar. However, there is
a new and powerful message coming out from the scientific community about
sugar, and whether it’s time for us to give it up. The Ugly Sugar is
making you ugly! What? – Yes! Excess sugar in our bodies is now being
revealed as one of the most damaging elements to our appearance. As it turns
out, these sweet little sugar molecules are leading a double life. After they
pass over our taste buds and give us that amazing sugar buzz, these appealing
friends of ours change their personalities and go on a seek-and-destroy
mission. In a process called glycation, excess sugar in our blood stream in
reality attacks the proteins throughout our bodies. As a matter of fact, these
sugar molecules attach themselves to proteins – much like a parasite. Once
bonding happens, that particular protein becomes glycated; or, in other words,
sick. A recently glycated protein becomes misshapen, hardened, does not
function correctly and excretes exotoxins that affect surrounding proteins.
After the glycation process has run its course, the protein is referred to as
an Advanced Glycation End Product, or A.G.E. for short. A real-world example
of glycation in action is the browning and hardening process when placing a
piece of bread in the toaster. This
is where the ugly part comes in. Our skin is essentially one giant protein
suit that covers us and protects all of our inner workings from the outside
world. Most people are aware that the main protein in human skin is collagen,
the proteins of which are very long lasting. They have a half-life of
approximately 15 years and are not immune to the effects of glycation. Just
like other proteins, when collagen becomes glycated, that protein is now
considered an A.G.E. Like others, collagen proteins become misshapen,
hardened, brittle and excrete exotoxins. While you can’t see the effects of
most proteins in your body when they become glycated, the effects of glycation
on skin proteins becomes very evident. Essentially, every visible sign we
attribute to aging skin – including wrinkles, fine lines, discoloration,
sagging, uneven skin tones, stress, loss of elasticity, etc. – can all be
attributed to the process of glycation. Glycation becomes more evident in your
appearance when sugar molecules attack the surface proteins on the fine
capillaries of your skin. This process causes your capillaries to leak,
causing what we recognize as spider veins. The same process can happen in the
under-eye area, which we recognize as dark circles. The most demoralizing
aspect of glycation is the fact that once a protein has become glycated, or is
now considered an A.G.E., the damage is permanent. Glycation is an additive
effect and probably begins as soon as we’re born, affecting us throughout
our lifetime. If you’ve read or have been told that environmental
factors like the sun, wind, weather and pollution age our skin the most, that
would be correct, but it’s not the whole story.
Glycation is the chemical process which enables these environmental
factors to damage our skin. For instance, when radiation from the sun strikes
and penetrates our skin, it accelerates the glycation process. (Recall my
mention of toasting a piece of bread.) It seems a little unfair. In most
cases, if I give up a certain vice, then my body, given enough time, will
generally recover. If I start eating a better diet, I’ll most likely lose
weight and be healthier. If I give up smoking, in most cases, my lungs, heart
and blood pressure can return to normal. Nevertheless, once your proteins have
been glycated, you’re pretty much out of luck; the damage has been done –
end of story. Well … almost. You see, if you go online right now and do a
search on the process of glycation, you will read much of what you’ve read
here, including the fact that once a protein has become an A.G.E., it’s
irreversible. Recent studies have shown some promising discoveries that may
allow us to not only help prevent further damage from glycation, but also help
affected proteins return to their normal state, function and appearance!
Powerful, new and topically applied serums have shown the remarkable ability
to help block the glycation process and break the bond between the sugar
molecules and the protein affected. In a recent clinical trial conducted in

Your Face Reveal Your True Feelings?
Shares 3 Ways It Can Lie About Us
-Social science experts agree -- much of what we “say” is never actually spoken.
and other body language account for more than half of our communication,”
says Adam J. Scheiner, M.D., www.adamscheinermd.com,
an international Oculoplastic surgeon who’s been featured on “The Dr. Oz
Show” and “The Doctors.” “When we look at someone, especially when
we’re meeting for the first time, we quickly scan the eye and mouth areas of
the other person’s face to make some quick judgments: Are they friendly or a
potential threat? Are they trustworthy? We form first impressions within 7
seconds of meeting.” Those first impressions can become misleading due to
the normal aging process and damage caused by stress, diet and environmental
factors, particularly sun exposure. “I call them the three D’s of aging:
Our skin begins to deteriorate; our faces deflate, making them narrower and
wrinkled; and our eyelids and face descend, causing drooping and sagging,”
Scheiner says. “All of these can affect what our face communicates to those
around us.” It’s bad enough to communicate something you don’t really
feel, he says. It’s worse when people react to that communication so often,
such as saying, “You look so tired,” that you actually begin to believe
you are tired, he says. He shares the three common
“miscommunications”: • “People say I look tired when I’m
not.” As we age, our eyelids can begin to droop and look heavy,
Scheiner says. The lower eyelid region often develops fullness below the lower
lashes due to changes in the fat around the eye and changes in the facial fat
of the surrounding cheek region. A lower eyelid height, heaviness of the upper
or lower eyelid, or an eyebrow falling into the upper eyelid space can also
occur. Whatever the cause, having baggy, puffy eyes can make a person look
tired, sleepy, old or sick. • “People avoid me because they
say I look stern, even angry. I’m neither!” Whether through
genetics or aging, eyebrows may lack or lose the arc that opens up the eye
area and the entire face. A fairly straight eyebrow can convey a closed,
unapproachable personality. • “People think I’m sick or have
no energy.” The brain expects to see a smooth curve from the temple
to the cheek through the jawline to the chin. Any break in the curve is read
as a lack of vibrancy. Normal facial aging causes loss of youthful fullness
due to facial fat changes. This can cause a break in the curve that translates
as a lack of vibrancy. In addition, poorly injected facial fillers can cause
unnatural results. Cosmetic procedures shouldn’t aim to turn you into
something you’re not, Scheiner says. “For rejuvenation, you simply want
your face to communicate how you really feel inside. When you accomplish that,
it’s so natural, people will say, ‘Wow, you look great!’ But they
won’t be able to put their finger on why.” About Dr. Adam J.

Long-Term Care Crisis Prompts More Aggressive Collection Tactics
Insurance Industry Expert Shares Tips for Protecting - Your Family from “Filial” Support Laws
Most people do not understand filial support laws, which are spreading to more states – 28 and counting, says insurance industry expert Chris Orestis. “We’re living longer, but for many of us, that also means we’ll require some type of long-term health care at some point,” says Orestis, a longtime industry insider and author of “Help on the Way,” (http://ebook.lifecarefunding.com/), which explains the problem of funding long-term care and offers solutions. “It’s a problem no matter what your age because we’re experiencing a “Silver Tsunami” of retiring baby boomers and the costs of long-term care can be extremely high. Medicaid is the only option for many seniors, and that’s straining the funding for that safety net. Many people are not eligible for Medicaid, but also cannot afford the expense of care.” As a result, long-term care providers and the federal government are bringing lawsuits and mandating claw-back actions against families, insurance companies and legal advisors, he says. Many are turning to filial support laws, which impose a duty upon adult children for the support of their impoverished parents. Medicaid also has the right to sue families in probate court to “claw-back” funds spent on care. Just one recent example involved John Pittas, a 47-year-old restaurant owner who was sued by a nursing home company for $93,000 in expenses incurred by his mother over a six-month period after she was denied Medicaid eligibility. “The court finding even granted discretion to the nursing home company to seek payment from any family members it wished to pursue,” says Orestis. To avoid a financial catastrophe, he says families should consider these options:
• Know your and your family’s health-care rights as a veteran. Veterans who have honorably served their country should take advantage of their VA benefits – not only for their well-being, but also for their family’s health. Additional programs that may apply to family members include the VA Civilian Health and Medical Program (CHAMPVA), a comprehensive health-care program in which the VA shares the cost of covered services and supplies for eligible beneficiaries; the spina bifida health-care benefits program for certain Korea and Vietnam veterans' birth children; and TRICARE, another health-care program serving uniformed service members, retirees and their families.
• You can convert your life
insurance policy for long-term care. There is $27.2 trillion worth of in-force life
insurance policies in the
• Don’t be so quick to attempt to qualify for Medicaid. Many people who need significant long-term health care can’t afford it, so they drop life insurance policies that they’ve been carrying for years in order to qualify for Medicaid. Families often turn to Medicaid to pay for nursing home care, but it comes with many restrictions, including choice of facilities. In a situation where one spouse is healthy and the other is not, the spouse living independently will also face restrictions on the amount of assets he or she can retain, for instance, a maximum $2,898.00 for monthly maintenance. About Chris Orestis - Chris Orestis, nationally known senior health-care advocate, expert, and author is CEO of Life Care Funding, (www.lifecarefunding.com), which created the model for converting life insurance policies into protected Long-Term Care Benefit funds. His company has been providing care benefits to policy holders since 2007. A former life insurance industry lobbyist with a background in long-term care issues, he created the model to provide an option for middle-class people who are not wealthy enough to pay for long-term care, and not poor enough to qualify for Medicaid.

SUN SCREENS …ARE THEY WHAT YOU NEED?
Award-Winning, Distinguished scientist, WW Dermatological Lecturer and Author of Inspired By Nature, Proven By Science – The New Generation Cancer Treatment That Causes Cancer Cells to Commit Suicide
We all need some sun exposure; it's our primary source of vitamin D, which helps us absorb calcium for stronger, healthier bones. But it doesn't take much time in the sun for most people to get the vitamin D they need, and repeated unprotected exposure to the sun's ultraviolet rays can cause skin damage, eye damage, immune system suppression, and skin cancer. Even people in their twenties can develop skin cancer.
The sun, a six billion-year-old star, is currently still the centre of confusion regarding its effects on the skin. The sun radiates visible light, which gives us the colour we see; infrared light, which gives us the warmth we feel ultraviolet (UV) light, which we cannot see.
When UV radiation reaches the skin, some radiation is reflected away from the surface. Some radiation is also absorbed and scathered into the tissue just beneath the skin's surface. The skin’s living cells absorb a proportion of this radiation. UV radiation absorbed by living cells can result in damage to the skin such as: sunburn, aging of the skin and skin cancer. However, vitamin D synthesis relies on UV radiation and is essential for the body. Some scientists believe that vitamin D prevents skin cancer.
So, does sun cause or prevent skin cancer?
Compounded on the questionable effects of sun on the skin regarding skin cancer, is the questionable safety of sunscreens. For example, the reflectors Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide in nano particle size and almost all UV absorbers have been shown to have adverse effects on the body.
Most kids rack up a lot of their lifetime sun exposure before age 18, so it's important that parents teach their children how to enjoy fun in the sun safely. With the right precautions, you can greatly reduce your child's chance of developing skin cancer.
So what precautions should we take to prevent skin cancer?
The key to effectively protect the skin from skin cancer is to find a healthy balance between getting enough natural sunlight to maximise vitamin D production and obtain optimal health, while at the same time protecting the skin from damage that occurs from over-exposure to the sun.
The following pr ecautions are recommended:
For infants under 6 months – Keep out of the sun and especially avoid exposure to the sun in the hours between and when UV rays are most intense. Dress infant in lightweight long pants, long-sleeved shirts and brimmed hats that shade the neck. The skin of babies is less mature compared to adults, and infants have a higher surface-area to body-weight ratio compared to older children and adults. These factors mean that an infant’s exposure to the chemicals in sunscreens (as discussed above) may be much greater, increasing the risks of side effects from the sunscreen. So, infants should not use sunscreens that contain potentially toxic ingredients. Barrier sunscreen with Titanium or Zinc Oxide that or not micronized can be considered only on areas prone to the sun. These sunscreens appear white on the skin when used.
For infants 6 months or older – avoid exposure to the sun during peak hours and dress with protective clothing, a hat with brim and sunglasses. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF of at least 15+. Use a sunscreen that contains non-micronized Zinc or Titanium oxides. Avoid using products that combine sunscreen and the insect repellent DEET.
Teenagers – Encouraging teenagers to use sunscreens is more effective by highlighting the effects of sunscreen usage on the prevention of premature wrinkling and ageing rather than precaution of skin cancer. Highlighting consequences to appearance rather than health appear to be more effective with teenagers. The fact that teens are motivated by beauty to use sunscreens limits their use of non-micronized Zinc and Titanium oxides, as these sunscreens are visible as white when applied to the skin.
Children get 80% of their lifetime sun exposure before the age of 18, so protection is important. Teens and people below 40 years should use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF30-50 and use sunsmart protective clothing.
Generally skin cancers appear in adults over the age of 40. Additional care is required at this stage. Recently a treatment for skin cancers has been reported using natural BEC glycoalkaloids in a cream CuradermBEC5. Various scientific publications show that when skin cancers were eliminated by this therapy, histologically by biopsies, and over 5 years follow-up, that there were no recurrences.
Subsequently it was reported that BEC glycoalkaloids, when added to a specific sunscreen formulation with a broad spectrum and SPF 3, CurasolBEC had many additional benefits and that this sunscreen could eliminate very early precancerous and cancerous growths. Accordingly, CurasolBEC sunscreen as a preventative for skin cancers is recommended for persons of all ages especially those over 40 years.

Upward Journey – A Guide To Transforming Life's Obstacles Into Success
Miami, FL, April 17, 2014 – Passionate about people, Patricia Périssé Bochi's vision is to help others realize that no matter what their circumstances are in life, change from within is possible! She knows from personal experience that it is not the stumbling blocks and tragedies in life that define us but how we react to them. Your Upward Journey: It's Easier Than You Think (Middle River Press), is the inspiring story of Patricia's life experiences and the coping tools she developed that enabled her to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds in order to live a truly fulfilling life.
At age 15, Patricia broke her back in an automobile accident that left her a paraplegic. Since her career goal at that time was to be a classical ballerina, she learned at a very early and difficult stage in life that she would either have to reinvent herself or become a victim of her circumstances. The latter was not an option. Patricia got married at age 19, had two children, and graduated cum laude from law school. She became a solo practitioner almost nine years ago with only one client waiting in the wings, but today Patricia heads up a flourishing law firm and has become a respected writer and contender in the self-help genre.
Your Upward Journey, part memoir/part life manual, is unlike any other self-help book. It is not the work of a psychologist, therapist, or psychiatrist writing from an outside point of view. It is a unique and compelling compilation of personal experiences and life-developed tools that can help anyone overcome obstacles, or wanting to make a radical change but not knowing where to begin. It offers rare insight that can be applied to literally any situation; a physical disadvantage, a negative experience, a life that's become stagnant, or one where a hidden personal barrier prevents a person from reaching their goals and dreams. The inspiring and motivating pearls of wisdom dotted throughout this book help readers find their true self and learn to look at life from a different perspective.
In conjunction with her book, Patricia Bochi plans to lead self-help seminars involving interactive audience participation that will energize attendees and ignite in them the courage and motivation necessary to change their way of thinking, be proud of who they are, and look at life in a more positive way.
Ms. Bochi obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the State University of New York and her Juris Doctor from the University of Miami School of Law at
