The event is being sponsored and hosted by the Battle Mountain Post 71 American Legion Riders and will take place at Centennial Park in Hot Springs.

    Calgary, Canada ( July 30, 2013 -- OrganizeYourPeople, the cloud-based software which offers Human Resources Management tools to small and medium-sized businesses, has been named one of Startup Canada's 1000 Startups.

    The 1000 Startups campaign was established by Startup Canada to celebrate Canadian entrepreneurs and "fuel a culture of entrepreneurship." Each week, 20-25 entrepreneurs from across the country are chosen from several different industries including energy, fashion, tourism and technology until the list of startups reaches 1000. OrganizeYourPeople was selected in the first round.

    "I am honoured to be included in the first round of 1000 Startups," says President Jennifer Aubin. "I have been in the tech startup space for over a decade now and it truly feels like startups have more of a voice across the nation and hopefully globally, because of Startup Canada."

    OrganizeYourPeople was founded by Aubin and Chief Technology Officer Kevin Sedran. Aubin, who has more than 15 years of experience in the HR industry, saw that small to medium-sized businesses lacked the tools to organize their employees, often having to resort to unsecure and documents and worksheets. She approached Sedran in 2010 with the idea of creating software to fill this need. They launched OrganizeYourPeople in 2011.

    The Calgary-based startup was tailor-made for small to medium-sized businesses to help with their HR needs so that they can focus on growing their businesses. With an eye on expanding to the North American market, OrganizeYourPeople is looking to boost their services by partnering with a payroll service for Canada and the US.

    ( July 30, 2013 -- Prolexic, the global leader in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) protection services, today released recommendations on using real-time analytics as a powerful tool for identifying denial of service attacks and other cyber threats, risks and events.

    Prolexic recommends that the information gleaned from real-time data analytics is the best foundation for a DDoS mitigation strategy that supports root-cause analysis of how a denial of service attack could affect an Internet-facing network. Potential targets are application logins, system performance (latency), network systems and mission-critical applications. Prolexic advises that DDoS mitigation providers and their customers can work more effectively by extracting intelligence from massive streams of data to determine the best response to the DDoS attack, resulting in faster mitigation and less risk of costly downtime.

    "Today, every industry is deluged with data from multiple sources in different formats, and the business of cyber security and DDoS attack mitigation is no exception," said Stuart Scholly, president of Prolexic. "Prolexic has learned that these 'big data' streams are valuable for DDoS mitigation only if data analytics are used to gain real-time insight into the trends, behaviors and events that make up today's cyber-attack landscape. Most importantly, using real-time data analytics drives faster cyber threat identification and mitigation, and consequently helps Internet-facing organizations build a stronger cyber security strategy."

    Prolexic also advises that even the best automated data analytics systems cannot replace the experience of skilled DDoS and cyber threat mitigation technicians, who analyze and extrapolate the data to make meaningful conclusions.

    ( July 31, 2013 -- The Wizard combines service with education to make clothes dryers safer and greener in his neighborhood

    Farmington, CT - Dryer vent cleaning is the best way to prevent dryer fires and other dryer related hazards. Dryer vent cleaning improves dryer performance and increases dryer efficiency. Most people own clothes dryers; yet are aware of how important dryer vent cleaning is to dryer fire prevention and energy savings.

    John Moffat, owner of Dryer Vent Wizard, encourages residents to look around their home for fire hazards and make necessary corrections. Clothes dryers are more likely to cause a fire than a furnace or stove. Unfortunately, clothes dryers are also the most neglected appliance when it comes to annual maintenance. Dryer vent cleaning is the Wizard's number one dryer fire prevention tip.

    In addition to dryer fire prevention good dryer maintenance also improves dryer performance and helps reduce the risk of breakdown. One of the most common complaints addressed by the Wizard is increased drying time. Many people think they need to service or replace the dryer when it takes an additional cycle to dry clothes. Few are aware that increased drying time indicates poor airflow and a potential fire hazard. Rarely does it mean that the dryer is worn out or in need of repair. Dryer vent cleaning is the solution.

    Another common misconception among consumers is thinking that if they clean the lint screen after every load, then professional dryer vent cleaning is not necessary. Keeping the lint filter clean is good dryer maintenance; however, it is not enough to ensure complete safety and efficiency. Eventually, dryer lint will build up in the dryer vent system and need to be removed by the Wizard (

    John explains to all his customers that the lint screen only traps about 60% of lint removed from laundry. Much of the lint that escapes the lint filter will end up in the dryer ducts and the dryer cabinet. Every dryer vent system needs dryer vent cleaning performed periodically. There is no maintenance-free dryer vent system.

    John Moffat owns Dryer Vent Wizard of Hartford County, specializing in professional dryer vent installation and dryer vent cleaning for homes and businesses. Education is an important part of the Wizard's service and he is happy to provide dryer fire prevention tips to all his customers. Visit to learn more.

    Rolling Meadows, Ill. ( July 31, 2013 -- When faced with the decision of choosing an injector for cosmetic treatments such as hyaluronic acid fillers or botulinum toxins, many consumers are motivated by factors such as peer influence or even the price of treatment.

    As consumer advocates, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) and NewBeauty magazine emphasize choosing an injector based on their credentials. That's why NewBeauty created - and the ASDS is endorsing - the ExpertInjector™ program.
    Physicians who are part of the ExpertInjector™ program are among the best the industry has to offer. Of the more than 1.2 million practitioners performing cosmetic injectable treatments in the United States, less than 7 percent meet the qualifications to be an ExpertInjector™.

    Physicians with the ExpertInjector™ designation are board-certified dermatologists, plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons and oculoplastic surgeons who have demonstrated extreme due diligence regarding patient safety, reliable results and consumer education.

    "Nearly any doctor can take a weekend crash course in injectables," said Steffanie Attenberg, Vice President and Group Publisher of NewBeauty magazine. "He or she can perform a procedure without receiving the necessary hands-on training or proper understanding of what's needed to reduce any risks and ensure the best results--a scary thought considering the growing popularity of injectable procedures in the U.S. That's why it's important to choose a doctor who is properly qualified to perform injectable procedures and only administers products that are FDA-approved."

    ExpertInjectors™ have the training and expertise in their approved core residencies and/or through additional post-graduate medical education to make them highly qualified to perform injectable procedures that require a keen understanding of the underlying anatomy and possible complications.

    "The ASDS is pleased to endorse the ExpertInjector™ program as a resource patients can rely on to help ensure they select a properly qualified physician to perform injectable procedures," said ASDS President Timothy C. Flynn, M.D. "Soft-tissue fillers and neuromodulators require extensive physician knowledge to ensure the highest level of care. A doctor's board certification is of heightened importance today, as the ASDS has noted a significant increase in patient complications due to the proliferation of non-qualified physicians offering cosmetic procedures."

    ( July 31, 2013 -- Columbus, Ohio - Columbus is fast emerging as a top city for craft breweries and microbrew startups. It's a return to the city's early history as a brewing mecca when it was settled by German brew masters in the 1830s. Today, an onslaught of artisan breweries has spawned a resurgence of the craft and led to the birth of the Columbus Microbrew Festival, which takes place every September in the North Market. While some of the city's breweries have been around for years, new ones are just launching. But each brew master shares a passion for quality and has an intriguing personal story about what launched their love affair with hops, barley and wheat. Columbus' craft beer scene is so hopping right now that a new Columbus-based tour company will begin showcasing local breweries in September. Just some of the beer experiences awaiting visitors to Ohio's capitol city include:

    North High Brewing, where not only is all of the beer brewed on site, but travelers can even create their own, personalized blends. North High's expert brewers walk brewers-in-training through the process, helping ensure delicious results. Co-founders Gavin Meyers and Tim Ward cater to both novice and experienced home brewers and beer aficionados. The beginner can receive training from onsite brew master, Charlie Davis, while seasoned brewers can create beers on their own. Guest walk away with a keg of beer they created -- the perfect memento of their Columbus beer experience. North High also offers on-site beer, a few pub snacks, home brewing supplies and special event space for rent.

    Rockmill Brewery has a secret to its brew. Brew master Matthew Barbee uses water from a private well located on the gorgeous 100-year-old horse farm the brewery calls home. When Barbee discovered that the water running through his land has the exact minerals content of that of Walonia Belgium, he knew the property was perfect for brewing Belgian farmhouse-style ales. Thus, he's developed a stunning Saison, Whitbier, Dubbel and Trippel. The resulting beer is gaining rave reviews nationally. Brewery tours and tasting room hours are offered weekends (Fri.-Sun.), noon-8 p.m. or by appointment.

    Columbus Brewing Company is a well-known local microbrewery and full-service restaurant, offering up a range of rotating craft beers, from lagers and India Pale Ales to Scottish blends. If a visitor is unsure which beer to try, that's no problem. Columbus Brewing Company Tasting Flight gives a sample of all of its brews. The microbrewery also offers half gallon growlers to take home.

    Elevator Brewing Company has won multiple awards for its beers, crafting nine distinct brews year round, plus a special seasonal beer each month. Opened daily, Elevator Brewery and Draught Haus serves up a full restaurant menu with outstanding steaks and all of the Elevator brews in a historic building. A large off-site brewing factory offers a tap room and tours that highlight local brewing history, the brewing process and how each Elevator beer is uniquely crafted. No tour is without a complimentary sample at the end. Elevator Tap Room is open Saturdays 11 a.m.-5 p.m. or by appointment.

    Barley's Brewing Company, an early pioneer of the return of Columbus brewing, has been tapping its own brew for more than 20 years, when in 1992, the brew master declared, "We're here to serve the perfect pint." Barley's serves its perfectly hand-crafted, award-winning ale at two locations. Its specialty is crafting unique ales, a process mastered by using ingredients from around the globe, like its Blood Thirst Wheat which takes its tang from the zest of Sicilian blood oranges. Along with their honored brew, Barley's serves up a deliciously complementary menu, making it a one-stop destination for anyone looking for great pub food and impressive local beer.

    Seventh Son Brewing Company offers tours, serving five of its own brews. A handful of other Ohio craft beers are also on tap inside this rustic urban space, and seasonally on dual outdoor patios. Rotating food trucks offer always-interesting food service. Located in Columbus' Italian Village, Seventh Son also pours a small selection of fine wines and a full bar. Live music adds to the experience, with Seventh Son being open Thursday 5 p.m.-1 a.m.; Friday 5 p.m.-2 a.m.; Saturday 11 a.m.-2 a.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-midnight.

    Four String Brewing Company takes its name from the four "strings" of brewing: water, malt, hops and yeast. It was started by rocker Dan Cochran who started brewing in 1994. While he toured the U.S. playing bass guitar in a number of rock bands, Cochran also visited the best pubs and microbreweries from New York to Seattle. Those brew masters willingly shared their expertise, helping Cochran craft his own exceptional beers, which include Backstage Belgian Blond, Brass Knuckle American Pale Ale, Big Star White IPA and Suncaster Summer Wheat Ale. With a wide-open view of its brewing operation, Four String's Tap Room opens in early fall with public hours Thurs-Saturday.

    Zauber Brewing Company began with founder Geoffrey Towne receiving his brew master's diploma from University of California at Davis Master Brewers program. Towne cut his teeth at other Midwest and East Coast breweries before opening his own company. Zauber, German for "magic," crafts German- and Belgian-style beers, which are available at more than a dozen favorite local taverns, restaurants and beer shops, and in growlers sold at the brewery Thurs.-Sat., 4-8 p.m.

    Hoof Hearted Brewing Company offers three distinctly different brews, each embodying the best of the countries they originated from. Hoof Hearted brings the do-it-yourself nature of micro brewing to a new level, as many of its brewing machines were hand crafted. This DIY attitude has helped craft some great beers. It's flagship Musk of the Minotaur IPA joins Rybörg Rye ale and Permafrost Wheat Porter on tap at local bars.

    While not a brewery, The Ohio Tap Room has 20 taps pouring only Ohio ales, including at least four from local Columbus breweries. Samples are just 50 cents and growlers are filled on site for take-away beer sales. Open seven days a week, a nice selection of Ohio-made snacks, such as font size? pretzels, soda, cider, jerky and even pie are available at The Ohio Tap Room.

    Columbus Brew Adventures launches its local brew-focused tours in September. Several tours will be offered, including neighborhood itineraries that feature Grandview and Downtown microbreweries, a distillery and spirits focused tour and an in-depth "Meet The Brewers" tour. Knowledgeable guides will take visitors to 4-5 locations, highlighting local lore and history and the best local brews. Tours are three hours long and cost $60 per person.

    Columbus is a city unlike any other. Vibrant and alive, Ohio's capital is known for its open attitude, smart style and entrepreneurial spirit. Columbus' uncommon blend of neighborhoods, arts and culinary experiences, events, attractions and accommodations are made unforgettable by its diversity of outgoing locals who warmly welcome visitors.
