URALCHEM paid more than 232 Million Roubles for Social Projects in 2012

In 2012, the URALCHEM group increased funding for social and charitable projects to 232.3 million roubles, compared to more than 90 million roubles in 2011.

Moscow, Russia (April 29, 2013) — In 2012, the URALCHEM group increased funding for social and charitable projects to 232.3 million roubles, compared to more than 90 million roubles in 2011.

“We see the support of social and charitable programmes as one of the most important parts of corporate ethics. Record production levels and the financial results achieved by the company in 2012 have allowed us to increase funding for social programmes by almost 2.5 times compared with 2011,” the Chairman of the Board of Directors of URALCHEM, Dmitry Mazepin, commented.

The main focus of URALCHEM’s charitable activity is the support of children’s and youth sports. The Group’s enterprises in 2012 contributed more than 77.1 million roubles for this purpose. In addition, assistance is provided to child and youth programmes aimed at improving health, education and recreation. Significant donations are also made to the support of veterans and pensioners. Traditionally, URALCHEM assists in organizing various sports and cultural events in the cities where the company’s facilities are located.

The company’s largest plant in Kirovo-Chepetsk became the largest contributor, paying 97.9 million roubles in donations and sponsorships. A significant amount of these funds was provided for an unprecedented initiative to support 70 large low-income families from the Kirov Region; all these families received Lada Granta cars from URALCHEM.

The Azot Branch and Minudobrenia, both located in the Perm Region, allocated 45.8 million roubles for charitable projects. The Voskresensk Mineral Fertilizers plant in the Moscow Region spent 27.7 million roubles on sponsorship and charity. An addition to the generous contributions made by the separate enterprises, nearly 61 million roubles was paid directly by the URALCHEM company itself for good causes.

URALCHEM has renovated a lecture hall in the Chemistry Department of Moscow University

One of the lecture halls at the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University has been completely renovated and re-equipped using funding provided by URALCHEM.

Moscow, Russia (April 29, 2013) — One of the lecture halls at the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University has been completely renovated and re-equipped using funding provided by URALCHEM.

URALCHEM was responsible for both the financing and organization of all phases of the work, which ranged from architectural design and major repairs to the purchase of computer equipment and furniture. Repair work began in October 2012 and is now completed. Today, the renovated hall is a comfortable auditorium, seating 35 students and containing the latest laboratory equipment, computers, office and video conferencing facilities. The project costs were 5.2 million roubles.

URALCHEM and Moscow State University have been collaborating since 2011, since when the Department of Chemistry has set up special training programmes for the company’s employees. The training curriculum includes a 72-hour course for workers without any previous educational background in chemistry (“Chemistry for non-chemists”), and a 105-hour course for those who already hold college and university degrees in chemistry (“Chemical technology of inorganic substances”).

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM commented, “We attach great importance to our cooperation with the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University. It is the leading university in the country and whose graduates are sought after in many sectors of the economy. The quality of its education remains at a consistently high level. I am therefore pleased that our partnership is developing and I hope that our support will facilitate the maintenance of its high educational standards.”

URALCHEM’s director of Human Resources, Svetlana Chekalova said, “I would like to thank the administration and staff of the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University for its cooperation. The Department’s teachers were very flexible in developing an academic programme that meets the needs of URALCHEM. We are a young company focused on development, and we are pleased with the desire for self-improvement shown by our employees. Since the beginning of our cooperation with Moscow State University, 236 workers from URLACHEM’s enterprises have already completed the courses. Our cooperation with one of the best universities in the country is helping to raise the professional level of our own people and is at the same time increasing the overall prestige of the chemist’s profession.”

Igor Kotlobovsky, Vice Rector of Moscow State University said, “On behalf of Moscow University, I would like to thank URALCHEM for its support, which has allowed the Department of Chemistry to have state-of-the-art equipment installed in one of its halls. The room has been fully modernised, whilst preserving its historical facade and decorative ceiling mouldings. Classes can now even be held remotely, so, students such as URALCHEM’s employees will be able to be trained without leaving their workplace. The partnership between the university and URALCHEM shows how fruitful cooperation of science and business can be.”

The Fixer HVAC, a proud member of the Delaware Small Business Chamber, is excited to be a part of HVACNewarkDE.com, bringing with the company a level of quality and honesty, and a standard of work ethic like no other.

Newark, DE (April 27, 2013) — There are special considerations and nuances involved in acquiring the proper permits for installation or repair of heating and air conditioning systems in the Newark, DE area. Because of this HVACNewarkDE.com has brought in “The Fixer Heating and Air” to service the HVAC needs of the residents of Newark. The Fixer Heating and Air maintains the proper level of insurance, qualifications and licensing to allow them to pull the proper permits to take care of your HVAC needs.

As one of the premier heating and air conditioning service companies in New Castle County several years running, The Fixer HVAC, a proud member of the Delaware Small Business Chamber, is excited to be a part of http://www.HVACNewarkDE.com, bringing with the company a level of quality and honesty, and a standard of work ethic like no other. The Fixer Heating and Air prides itself on being the working man’s HVAC company, providing reasonable cost and dependable service which allows each and every family to be comfortable in their home. See this page for more info on cutting costs.

While simple repairs or maintenance, furnace cleanings, or air conditioner services, for instance, don’t often require permits, it is still very important to hire the right heating and air company to service your HVAC needs. Proper licensing and insurance is a must when choosing the right company to keep your system up to code. HVACNewarkDE.com knows that and has brought the “right” company on board to make the choice easier; The Fixer Heating and Air.

“The Newark area is tough with the permits and requirements which really drives up the costs for any contractor looking to service residents in that area,” states owner, Mr. Allen. “We strive to keep overhead very low so that we can continue to help people at affordable rates to stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer.”

Heating and air conditioning is not the only consideration when it comes to the air quality of your home. Often the winter months can bring about very dry conditions, chapped lips, painful sinuses, and the like. The Fixer HVAC can install a complete house humidifier to take the edge off those chilly mornings. Dust in the venting can also be an inconvenience and a trigger for allergy sufferers. The Fixer Heating and Air not only cleans the system but the ducts also, to keep you home as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

Right Now Wellness Presents the Secret to a Fulfilled Life

Right Now Wellness works with clients to ensure they find what they are looking for in life, no matter what that is. Each person is an individual with unique needs and personal goals. Working together, we can define those goals and work to make them happen,” said Amanda Wright of Right Now Wellness.

Richmond, VA (April 27, 2013) — Holistic therapy, the art and science of healing which addresses the mind, body and spirit of the person, offers many benefits. Therapy of this type honors the lifestyle, observations, habits and beliefs of the person being treated, and treatment methods of less harm are preferred over riskier ones. “Respect for the individual remains the top priority throughout treatment to help healing on all levels,” Amanda Wright of Right Now Wellness declares.

Right Now Wellness (http://www.rightnowwellness.com) offers healing art massage therapy. This technique began more than 3,000 years ago with the ancient Egyptians, Persians and Hindus using it for a wide range of ailments. Conditions from arthritis to immune suppression benefit from massage. “Right Now Wellness offers deep tissue massage, acupressure, Thai massage, couples massage and more to benefit a wide range of conditions,” Ms. Wright explains. “The goal is to find the right massage modality for what the client is experiencing.”

Hypnosis focuses a person’s awareness to allow the conscious mind and the subconscious to believe the same message. The client feels calm and relaxed while under hypnosis which allows him or her to concentrate intensely while blocking out distractions. “Hypnosis has been successfully used to help patients break unwanted habits, reduce stress or cope better with medical conditions. The effects of this treatment last for an extended period of time and the client’s overall quality of life improves,” Ms. Wright goes on to say.

Couples struggle at times as every relationship goes through ups and downs. Traditional marriage counseling and s*x therapy revolve around verbal communication and work at home assignments. “With couples therapy, the goal transitions to exploring the relationship on a deeper level, one that includes real time interactions and non-verbal communication. “Partners learn how to feel fulfilled, on an emotional and a sexual level,” Ms. Wright states.

Many find themselves struggling to find fulfillment in life as they don’t have the life they truly envision. They continue doing the same things while expecting to see different results. “When this is the case, the person suffers in every area of life. Right Now Wellness works with clients to ensure they find what they are looking for in life, no matter what that is. Each person is an individual with unique needs and personal goals. Working together, we can define those goals and work to make them happen,” Ms. Wright proclaims.

About Right Now Wellness:
Right Now Wellness works to help clients break patterns that aren’t helping them move forward and let go of things which are keeping them stuck in the past.

Ms. Wright is a certified hypnotherapist, an NLP/life coach, certified intimacy coach and educator and certified massage therapist. She is also a Reiki master, an ordained minister/spiritual counselor, mediation guide and has experience with relationship counseling.

Vegas Versus Victoria Falls: Which Vacation Is The Better Value?

Study compares costs of 10 global adventure trips with rates at 3-4 star hotels.

(For Immediate Release) April 26, 2013 — Today’s travelers seek memorable experiences when they vacation. A recent cost comparison study shows that global adventures can be more affordable than many three and four-star hotel stays. The research by AdventureLink.com suggests that cost-conscious consumers may wish to consider adventure travel as an alternative to traditional “been-there done-that” hotel stays.

Despite ongoing worries about the economy, the adventure travel industry is growing at 17 percent per year, according to the Adventure Travel Trade Association. The growth is being fueled by aging baby boomers seeking more value from their vacation travel experiences. “Many travelers don’t realize that some of the most sought-after adventure trips in the world cost less per day than staying in three and four-star hotels in major cities,” says Kelly Tompkins, Founder & CEO of AdventureLink Travel Inc.

In the study, AdventureLink.com compared 10 popular trips-such as African safaris, climbing Machu Picchu, and walking tours of Europe-to the cost of staying at three and four-star hotels across major destinations.

As with hotel stays, adventure tours typically do not include airfare. But adventure vacations do often include the cost of lodging, meals and in many cases a guide and local transportation.

“Everybody is value-conscious. So when I share with friends the adventures they can have for as little as $59 dollars a day, they often can’t believe it,” notes adventure travel pioneer Richard Bangs, an AdventureLink board member. Bangs points out that AdventureLink.com alone offers over 350 trips that cost less than $59 per day, roughly the cost of a night at a Motel 6.

“Most people are unaware that meaningful, affordable adventure travel options exist. That’s why we created AdventureLink.com,” Tompkins adds.

Moving Right Along Presents Moving Solutions for Business and Residential Moves Alike

“When one goes to change his or her residence, the right moving company helps to make the transition smooth in every way,” Jim Rueda of Moving Right Along (MovingRightAlong.com) states.

Ozone Park, NY (April 25, 2012) — According to the 2007 American Community Survey (ACS), the average American moves 11.7 times in his or her lifetime. The satisfaction of a move depends in great part on the moving company selected. “When one goes to change his or her residence, the right moving company helps to make the transition smooth in every way,” Jim Rueda of Moving Right Along (http://www.movingrightalong.com) states.

Whether one is moving to a new residence or new commercial location, he or she needs to feel comfortable with the moving company selected as the movers are handling his or her possessions. “Each possession in a home or office is chosen with care by the owner. Movers need to remember this at all times and treat each item as if it were their own. Many moving companies seem to forget this,” Mr. Rueda continues.

Items such as fine art and antiques or musical instruments such as a piano require special treatment. Special equipment may be needed to transport these items safely or special packing materials must be used. “Moving Right Along (http://www.movingrightalong.com/moving.html) understands this and equips each truck with a wide range of packing supplies and special equipment to properly care for these items,” Mr. Rueda goes on to say.

No two businesses are alike and therefore no two commercial moves are identical either. Some companies find themselves in need of records storage while others wish to have warehousing and distribution help. When a company chooses to relocate, Moving Right Along (http://www.movingrightalong.com/commercial.html) sends in a project manager to assess the situation and map out a plan for the move. “Having this service reduces the amount of downtime a company experiences during a move. With competition fierce in many industries, customers appreciate this as it ensures they don’t fall back in terms of their competition during a move,” Mr. Rueda explains.

Moving Right Along offers many other services consumers may find they need when switching residences or commercial locations. From junk removal and home cleaning services to fumigation and storage, Moving Right Along strives to meet the needs of customers in every area. “The fewer companies involved in a move, the easier the entire process becomes which is why many in New York look no further than Moving Right Along,” Mr. Rueda stresses.

About Moving Right Along:

Moving Right Along began as a part time venture in 1976 when it was known as Jim’s Moving Company. In 1981, Jim completed his Bachelor of Business Administration Degree in Marketing at Baruch University and he opted to change the name to Moving Right Along Service, Inc. Although the name changed, the company’s commitment to reliable and friendly service at a great low price remained. During the 1980s, the company expanded from a one truck operation to an eight truck organization. In 1988, Jim chose to purchase a Packaging Plus franchise which led to him branching out in many other areas. Services offered now include crating, interstate and international moving and containerized storage. Over the years, Jim has personally overseen all company operations and works to ensure a client’s transition to a new home or office is smooth thanks to quick and quality service.

Yale Pest Elimination Warns of Rising Bed Bug Infestions

“Bed bug infestations need to be treated immediately as the bugs bite and may cause allergic reactions,” according to Jim Miller of Yale Termite and Pest Elimination (YalePest.com).

Ansonia, CT (April 25, 2013) — According to a survey conducted by the NPMA and the University of Kentucky, 95 percent of professional pest management companies in the United States have dealt with an infestation of bed bugs in the last twelve months. Before 2000, only 25 percent reported one or more encounters with these creatures. “Bed bug infestations need to be treated immediately as the bugs bite and may cause allergic reactions,” according to Jim Miller of Yale Termite and Pest Elimination (http://www.yalepest.com).

Home owners often attempt to treat this problem on their own with very little success. According to those surveyed, bed bugs continue to be the hardest pest to treat. An overwhelming 76 percent of respondents stated bed bugs are harder to treat than ants, termites and cockroaches. “Property owners need to seek the services of a professional pest company (http://www.yalepest.com/extermination-services/bed-bugs/bed-bug-exterminator) to get rid of the bugs as a bed bug may lay more than 500 eggs in their lifetime,” Mr. Miller continues.

Bed bugs don’t need food to survive either as a bed bug can go months without a meal. The hatchlings are minuscule and easily pass through stitch-holes in mattresses and other tiny openings. They survive in a wide range of temperatures and ingest up to seven times their body weight in blood. “Any property owner who suspects he or she has bed bugs needs to call in a professional exterminator (http://www.yalepest.com/extermination-services) right away,” Mr. Miller declares.

Bed bugs don’t transmit disease, yet can lead to an allergic reaction. They take up residence in clean and unclean homes and buildings although 37 percent do believe they are attracted to those homes and offices which are dirty. Household income doesn’t play a role in where bed bugs live either.

“Every home and office is susceptible to bed bugs as they may be picked up in a wide variety of locations. Bed bugs catch a ride on people and their belongings, making it possible to pick the bugs up in hotels, college dorms, public transportation, movie theaters and laundry facilities. Although infestations are more common in suburban and urban areas than in rural ones, everyone needs to be aware of bed bugs and what to look for,” Mr. Miller states.

About Yale Pest Elimination:

Established in 1983, Yale Termite and Pest Elimination Corp remains an industry leader. The family owned and operated company makes use of integrated pest management practices in all that they do. They provide fast and effective pest control solutions for both residential and commercial clients and have been trusted by thousands over the years. The typical client has been with the company for more than five years and all pest control technicians maintain state licensing. The National Pest Management Association recognized Yale Termite and Pest Elimination Corp. for meeting published standards of a QualityPro company.

As Time Goes By a Novel by Dr. Benedict A. Baglio Released Worldwide In eBook Form

Baglio releases his fifth book, a historically accurate fiction book — As Time Goes By.

Patchogue, NY (April 25, 2013) — Initially stunned and confused by his meeting with his World War II hero John Waldron, modern day Navy pilot Steven Amato is left endorsed and enriched by the experience.

As Time Goes By written by Dr. Benedict Baglio (http://www.benbaglio.com) encourages the imagination to reconsider the reality that described America during the dark days of World War II. It asks the reader to define selflessness and service in terms that were applicable then, and now. It begs the questions — What has changed? What has remained constant? Are we as good as the people of that generation, or are we better because of them? Dr. Benedict Baglio did exhaustive research while writing As Time Goes By making the characters and the dilemmas that are cast upon them rich and full of life, then and now.

As Time Goes By is a story of heroes, both past and present. They are connected by their love of the United States Navy and the country it protects and defends. John C. Waldron lost his life in a valiant but doomed attack on the Japanese fleet at Midway. So unselfishly brave were his actions that Winston Churchill wept upon hearing his story and the torpedo squadron of aircraft he led. So gallant were their deeds that the commanding Admiral of the Japanese Fleet Chuichi Nagumo prayed for their souls as Waldron and his command fell in fire and blood to the full might of the his Imperial Fleet.

Steven Amato is a modern day Navy pilot who grew up with Waldron’s legend practically embedded in his DNA. Amato has a severe crisis of faith when he is ordered to avoid engagement when Libyan aircraft butcher a dear friend as they fly combat air patrol over the Mediterranean Sea in the early 1980s. Amato is about to quit the Navy, until a Hamilton Chronometer, found tucked under the front seat of a 1939 Ford Convertible, intervenes. He bought the Ford from the failing father of one of the men Waldron led to his death at Midway. The watch provides an unexplained portal for Amato to examine Waldron’s character, leadership and the facts surrounding his demise, up close and personal.

“This novel will be enjoyed by the serious World War II historian, as well as those who consider the what-if’s of history as nutritional food for thought. If you fancy teleology in your reading, this might well be a book that should sit on your shelf or in your electronic reader,” says author Ben Baglio.

As Time Goes By is historically accurate. Baglio performed painstaking research to detail the land as it was then and is now. He envelopes the reader with his love of the historical period that sets the stage for the book. His characters are animated by rich descriptions of place and time in the past and present. Readers have enjoyed the plot twists and turns that Baglio uses to spin his tale.

As Time Goes By in ebook form ISBN 9781622870431, was published by First Edition Design Publishing. It is available on-line wherever ebooks are sold.

One of the most important results of our work has been the fact that in 2012 all our enterprises have kept well within the limits for permissible concentrations of pollutants set by the government regulators.” commented by Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM.

Moscow, Russia (April 24, 2013) — In 2012, the URALCHEM group increased funding for environmental programs to 465.6 million roubles. This represents an increase of more than 28% compared with 2011. Successful projects included new modern processing facilities and treatment systems, industrial waste recycling and reclamation of previously polluted sites.

The Azot branch of URALCHEM in Berezniki in 2012 implemented an environmental programme costing a total of more than 44 million roubles. During the year, factory emissions were reduced by 3%, concentration of monoethanolamine pollutants in waste water was reduced by 37% and suspended substances pollutants by 11%, oxides of nitrogen emissions were reduced by 10% and carbon monoxide emissions decreased by 9%.

MFP Kirovo-Chepetsk Chemical Works in Kirovo-Chepetsk in 2012 spent 259 million roubles on environmental measures. During the year, emissions decreased to 52.5% of the limits set by the regulators, compared with 57.8% in 2011. New technical equipment was commissioned and gas cleaning systems were modernized. One of the highlights was the completion of work to eliminate the liquid phase at the 6th section of the chalk tailings storage facility. This work is part of a large, multi-year reclamation project being carried out on the facility.

Minudobrenia in Perm in 2012 spent more than 70 million roubles on environmental activities. Because of the specific type of production at the facility, 90% of costs are related to the improvement of water management through technology improvement projects. These projects reduce water consumption by eliminating leaks in water supply and sewage networks. This is particularly important in light of the fact that the enterprise does not discharge waste water to the surface waters.

URALCHEM’s enterprise in Voskresensk in 2012 spent 92 million roubles on environmental projects. Among the main activities were the modernization of equipment and the improvement of technological processes in the major manufacturing plants, as well as in the shops for the neutralization and treatment of industrial waste water.

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM commented:
“URALCHEM attaches great importance to the preservation of the environment and pursues a deliberate and transparent environmental policy in the regions where it operates. One of the most important results of our work has been the fact that in 2012 all our enterprises have kept well within the limits for permissible concentrations of pollutants set by the government regulators.”

T5 Data Centers Scheduled to Open Advanced, Greener Data Center Campus in Colorado Springs

Scheduled for Completion in 2014, T5@Colorado Data Center Strategically Located to Lower Power Consumption and Take Advantage of Colorado’s Digital Economy.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (April 23, 2013) — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments for any enterprise, has started construction on T5@Colorado, its sixth data center complex, in Colorado Springs. The new $800 million data center campus will be situated on 64 acres and promises to offer businesses high reliability at lower operating costs while boosting job creation in the area. Completion of the first phase of the project is expected by Q1 2014.

T5@Colorado is a purpose-built data center park designed to meet the immediate Information Technology needs of modern business with the flexibility to grow for the future. The data center campus promises 100 MW of available power with sustainable, eco-friendly design capabilities and offers power rates of $0.0444 per kilowatt-hour with the potential to utilize free cooling over 97 percent of the year. It will be ideal for either single-tenant enterprise users or wholesale colocation with Tier II, III, or IV capability and unlimited design flexibility to service requirements as diverse as cloud, big data or high performance computing.

T5 continues to develop state-of-the-art data centers in strategic locations to deliver maximum capacity, security and service with minimal operating overhead. The new Colorado Springs campus will be able to take advantage of the high plains climate by using the cooler, drier external air to reduce air conditioning and operating costs. The location also is strategically placed close to the Denver Technology Center, a technology and telecommunications hub, and will serve as a central data relay center to lower latency for business-critical enterprise applications from coast to coast.

T5 executives anticipate that the new data center campus will create 400 – 600 new high-paying jobs in the area. Industry research indicates that for every job directly created by the data center, there are five jobs created indirectly.

“Colorado Springs is the ideal location for the next phase of our expansion,” said Peter Marin, President and CEO of T5 Data Centers. “This is a vibrant, growing area with a strong and supportive business climate, and the proximity to Denver, as well as local colleges and military installations, gives us access to terrific talent and local resources. We want this new data center campus to be groundbreaking as an eco-friendly green facility, offering our customers the best possible enterprise infrastructure and support services at competitive rates.”

Cloud computing and data processing continue to be growth markets. A report by Biggins Lacy Shapiro & Co. predicts that new construction for large enterprise data centers will increase from $6 billion in 2012 to $12 billion by 2015. According to International Data Corporation, spending on cloud computing services was expected to grow from $16.2 million in 2008 to $42 million by the end of 2012, making the IT industry and data processing the fastest growing industry in the United States.

The technique of Light Grids: In the group-work we are working together as a collective and it is a collective of programs and fears. The larger the groups the more we can work on clearing. Each person will bring a list of their priorities to the table, which they would like to work on.

Because we all have similar issues, we can help and support each other.

The group work is like opening doors and behind these doors are your fears and programs. And it’s your free will and responsibility – do you want to go into these rooms and start cleaning these programs. These Meditations are for anyone wanting to work through issues that may be holding them back from creating the life of their dreams.

Youth Production Company in Rhinebeck New York Gearing Up For “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown”

INSPIRED IN PART BY FAMILY ENCOUNTER WITH STEVEN SPIELBERG, NEXTQUEST PRODUCTIONS LAUNCHES THEATER COMPANY WITH TONY-AWARD WINNING VERSION OF “YOU’RE A GOOD MAN, CHARLIE BROWN”.

Poughkeepsie, New York (April 20, 2013) — When Matt Hagerty’s grandfather had the chance to meet and dialogue with Steven Spielberg’s father years ago, he had no idea that the encounter could potentially define his own grandson’s career.

“My grandfather had the opportunity to hear first-hand about Mr. Spielberg’s investment into his son’s dream, and the story of that encounter ended up inspiring my dad to support my launch of NextQuest”, shared seventeen-year-old Matt Hagerty of Rhinebeck, who, along with three other school-age trustees, founded NextQuest Productions and is now serving as President (along with his role as Snoopy). “The Hudson Valley is a theatrical hotbed of sorts, and we are ecstatic to be joining the scene. Our prices for the pilot production, ‘You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown’, set for May 24, 25, and 26 at Cunneen-Hackett, are the lowest around. We believe that seeing a professional-quality show should be an experience that everyone should be able to access at an affordable rate”.

Nicole Tarcza, Director and Choreographer, Co-founder and Trustee states, “one would be hard-pressed to find anyone who does not know of Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. We wanted to reach families and appeal to all ages. The musical touches on a broad range of emotions, from day-to-day frustrations to genuine feelings of happiness in life”.

The team of youth who have organized the production and purchased the rights to the play made a very deliberate philosophical choice when it came to venue. “The main draw of Cunneen-Hackett is its charm. The intimate setting of this historic space is ideal for this show. Charlie Brown is about simplicity; it’s a perfect match, a venue where we can bring Charlie and his friends to life”, said Tarcza.

“You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” showtime and ticket information is as follows:
Friday, May 24th; 7:30pm; Saturday, May 25th, 2pm and 7:30pm; and Sunday, May 26th, 3pm at Cunneen-Hackett Arts Center, 12 Vassar Street, Poughkeepsie, New York. Email tickets@nextquestproductions.org or visit nextquestproductions.org. Ticket prices are $8 for adults; $5 for children 12 and under. The production will be directed by Nicole Tarcza and feature Matt Harshberger as Charlie Brown, Niki Metcalf as Sally Brown,Thomas Netter as Linus Van Pelt, Abbey Ressa as Lucy Van Pelt, Thomas Hricisak as Schroeder, and Matt Hagerty as Snoopy.

Gold Diggers Invited to Come Out of the Closet

The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization, invites Gold Diggers (aka Sugar Babies) to come out of the closet of the following events.

San Rafael, CA, April 18, 2013 — Contact: Tom Andrews, 415/507-9962

“Now that it is fashionable to be gay,” says Rich Gosse, spokesman for SugarDaddyForMe.com, “it’s time for Gold Diggers to come out of the closet. For thousands of years most women have considered financial security to be the most important quality they seek in a potential mate. This is true in virtually all countries and all cultures around the world. Unfortunately, it’s not socially acceptable to admit to being a Gold Digger. We aim to change this.

“There are two types of Gold Diggers,” says Mr. Gosse. Predatory Gold Diggers are women who exploit prosperous men. Their only interest in them is their money. Predatory Gold Diggers only pretend to love wealthy men. They give the second type a bad name. Loving Gold Diggers are women who value financial security as a top priority in selecting a mate, but also are sincerely attracted to men for their personal qualities.”

The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization, invites Gold Diggers (aka Sugar Babies) to come out of the closet at the following events:

– Sugar Daddy Extravaganza, Thursday, April 25, Copacabana, New York City
– San Francisco’s First Gold Digger Party, Saturday, May 11, Carbon Lounge
– World’s First Gold Digger Cruise, November 14-18

Rich Gosse, Chairman of The Society of Single Professionals, is America’s foremost authority on finding a romantic partner. He is the author of eight books on this topic, including You CAN Hurry Love, Singles Guide to America, and A Good Man Is EASY to Find (“This is a great book!” Oprah Winfrey). His entertaining advice has been featured by ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Fox News Live, MSNBC, Oprah, Donahue, Cosmopolitan, Newsweek, Entrepreneur, Business Week, Playboy, Playgirl, The Wall Street Journal, London Times, The Australian, The New Zealand Herald, etc. Mr. Gosse is available to the news media to discuss the Gold Digger Phenomenon by calling 415/479-3800.

ALIPAC Plans To Defeat Illegal Immigration Amnesty Bill Again

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is planning to defeat the 844 page immigration reform Amnesty bill (S.744) that was filed by the “Gang of Eight” in the US Senate today.

Raleigh, NC, USA (April 17, 2013) — Contact: ALIPAC (866) 703-0864 Press@alipac.us

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is planning to defeat the 844 page immigration reform Amnesty bill (S.744) that was filed by the “Gang of Eight” in the US Senate today.

ALIPAC activists and strategies played key roles in defeating similar legislation in 2006, 2007, and 2010 by harnessing activism from the majority of Americans opposed to the bills.

“We believe that this bill will hurt American workers, taxpayers, students, and voters by both destroying our future abilities to control our borders and by encouraging more illegal immigration into our suffering nation!” said William Gheen.

The key to defeating this new omnibus “Immigration Reform” amnesty bill that was crafted in secret without Congressional, media, or public oversight will be slowing the bill down enough to allow the public sufficient time to discern what is actually contained in the 844 page attempt to radically alter America.

“Those supporting this legislation know that a large majority of Americans will oppose it if they find out what is truly contained in the bill and that is why they want to rush it through Congress,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Most Americans would not even have time to print this bill on their home computers much less read or understand it before the Senate hearing this Friday!”

ALIPAC is America’s 3rd largest national grass roots organization fighting against illegal immigration and any form of amnesty.

Today, ALIPAC will be asking the over 100,000 Americans in their network to call Congress to ask that the immigration bill be slowed down, to share the new polling data from Pulse Opinion Research showing 80% of Republicans and 72% of all Americans prefer enforcement instead of legalization for illegal immigrants, to oppose any path to citizenship for illegals, and to encourage others to sign a new online petition against Amnesty at http://www.AgainstAmnesty.com.

Demolition Set to Begin for New Development at 257 Osborne Street

Landmark Office Tower to transform Winnipeg’s Confusion Corner.

WINNIPEG, MB (April 16, 2013) — Demolition will begin Wednesday, April 17, 2013 at the site of the future Landmark Office Tower at Confusion Corner in Winnipeg.

The demolition, which will begin at 10 a.m. and last four to six weeks, will make way for the new construction project. Local firm Imperial Properties is the property manager and leasing agent for the development.

“We are very excited to see work begin on the Landmark Office Tower this week,” said Adrian Schulz, spokesperson for Imperial Properties. “This is a great opportunity for the local community and members of the news media to attend and watch this major project commence. Over the next year, there are going to be some significant changes made to the site that will transform and enhance Confusion Corner overall.”

Space at 257 Osborne St. site opened up when the previous commercial tenant, Bruni Auto, moved to a different location. The Imperial Properties team has been working on the development project for the past months, and now that warmer weather is on its way, the company is eager begin the demolition and construction process.

The Landmark Office Tower will be a first-class commercial structure featuring large windows, an open and customizable floor plan, modern mechanical systems and onsite property management. It is located at the highest traffic count intersection of Winnipeg, where traffic counts average more than 91,100 vehicles per day. It is the key connection point to the City Center, Osborne and Corydon Village.

Already leased are the main retail floor-to a national restaurant chain-and one office floor, which a business center operator will occupy. This leaves three floors and 18,120 total square feet available which are ideal for professional or medical office use.

“This will be a state-of-the-art office building, and there is still plenty of space with ground and underground parking available for business tenants to claim,” Schulz said. “We do expect this space to lease up quickly, so we encourage all interested parties to inquire soon. The amenities of the new building, combined with its outstanding landmark location, are sure to give tenants some wonderful opportunities for success.”

Wednesday’s demolition will also provide media members with the opportunity to take “before” photos of the current structure, and then track the effort’s progress in the upcoming months.

The Landmark Office Tower project is scheduled for completion by 2014. To learn more about Imperial Properties and its work, visit http://www.imperialproperties.ca/commercial.

Don Jacobson Announced as Featured Artist by Art Gallery

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is pleased to announce that fine art photographer; Don Jacobson is now the gallery’s featured artist.

Jupiter, Florida, USA (April 16, 2013) — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery (LST) is pleased to announce that fine art photographer; Don Jacobson is now the gallery’s featured artist. Don has participated in many of the gallery’s past art competitions and he has placed in every art exhibition that he competed in!

The world of photography and the world of the natural wonders of the Sierra Nevada opened to Don Jacobson simultaneously. The photographs he took with his little Kodak Brownie were woefully inadequate to express the grandeur of the Range of Light. Within a week of his first backpack trip into the high country, he bought his first SLR, a Pentax Spotmatic and began to take photography classes.

Don’s degree is in electrical engineering and he worked in that field for three years. Working for the defense industry became more of a contradiction with his political views initiating a search for a desperately needed a creative outlet. For the next twenty-eight years he worked as a glassblower. His work was shown in galleries across the United States, and the Corning Museum included a piece of his in their 1986 collection of 200 international glassblowers. Although glassblowing was his “day job,” he continued to practice the art of photography, studying photography with Edmund Teske at UCLA for a year. The two different mediums are connected by light. The magic of glass is in its ability to transmit and reflect light while photography is the capturing of light.

Don states this about his art and photography, “I see the world differently now. The camera, which narrows the field of vision, has actually expanded my vision. When I realized I was viewing reality as if it were a series of photographs, I initially questioned that perspective. Now, I know my perception is enhanced and enriched from my pursuit of photography. An already dynamic and interesting world has become more so.” Don’s work can be found at http://www.donjacobsonphoto.com.

ISOLUTE® Myco SPE Columns, a Dedicated Product for The Efficient Extraction of Mycotoxins from Food Matrices

Biotage has announced the launch of ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns, a new product for the ‘catch and release’ clean up of mycotoxins from food matrices, prior to analysis by LC-MS/MS.

Uppsala, Sweden, April 16, 2013 — Biotage (STO: BIOT), a leading global supplier of solutions and technology for analytical, medicinal and peptide chemistry, has announced the launch of ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns, a new product for the ‘catch and release’ clean up of mycotoxins from food matrices, prior to analysis by LC-MS/MS.

The ISOLUTE® Myco sorbent is a proprietary polymeric phase (patent pending) optimized for the extraction of a broad spectrum of mycotoxins from a wide range of foodstuffs; enabling chemists to utilize a single SPE product to extract all relevant mycotoxins from an individual foodstuff. Using a single, easy to use sample preparation product, along with optimized matrix specific application notes, scientists can prepare diverse samples for analysis by LC-MS/MS.

ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns have been developed for use together with LC-MS/MS analysis, their selective clean up enables robust, reliable quantitation of mycotoxins without compromising analytical data quality. The coupling of a dedicated polymer based sorbent with LC-MS/MS analysis saves both time and money as more samples can be processed each day compared to IAC based clean up. The tabless 3 mL format of the ISOLUTE® Myco columns is suitable for a variety of processing equipment including vacuum manifolds, positive pressure manifolds and automated SPE workstations.

“ISOLUTE® Myco SPE columns are a real step forward in mycotoxin sample preparation, helping scientists to fully exploit the advantages of higher productivity and highly selective LC-MS/MS analysis through the use of a truly optimized sample preparation regime” says Dr. Claire Desbrow, Global Product Manager.
