    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica ( August 23, 2013 -- According to the American Dental Association, the cost of dental supplies in the U.S. is increasing at an average rate of three percent every year. This increase is concerning for many dentists who already face tight profit margins. From payroll and insurance to equipment, supplies and taxes, it costs a lot of money to operate a thriving dental practice.

    To deal with these rising costs, many U.S. dentists have turned to overseas dental laboratories to provide them with high-quality dental products at drastically lower costs. Selecting the right dental lab is an important decision that affects both the dentist and the patient. For dentists, a dental lab serves as a partner, providing consistently reliable, high-quality products. Patients don't often consider the dental lab their dentist uses, but a high-quality dental lab allows dentists to provide top-of-the-line, dependable dental products that give patients safety, confidence and quality aesthetics.

    "More and more American and Canadian dentists and dental clinics are choosing international suppliers for their custom dental appliances," said Mike Lomax, owner of Reliable Arts Dental Lab. "Over the past several years, we have seen our base of American and Canadian dental clients multiply, as the price of dental implants, crowns, bridges and dentures continues to increase in the U.S. We now have the privilege of working with hundreds of U.S. dentists and dental clinics. Time and time again, they tell us how impressed they are with the consistent quality and dependability of our products. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality products at prices dramatically less than the same or comparable products manufactured in the states."

    Reliable Arts Dental Lab is located in the capital city of San Jose, Costa Rica. The lab's Costa Rican location allows them to produce top-of-the-line products at an affordable price. This is a cost savings that Reliable Arts happily passes along to their dentist customers. The team at Reliable Arts is so confident in the quality of their work, they offer their customers an unprecedented seven-year breakage guarantee on all of their restoration services.

    ( August 23, 2013 -- This month in PLUS Model Magazine (PMM) blog, Editor-in-Chief, Madeline Jones, takes a look at the dark 'size' of the plus modeling industry.

    It began like any other young girl's dream...

    Former model Carre Otis was a top model for many years and worked with top designers and magazines for nearly 10 years. Her beauty was undeniable, but at what cost? In this month's Australian Vogue, Carre opens up about maintaining her figure by vomiting, using pills and starving herself, while magazine's used photo shop to cover up her unhealthy hair and skin due to dehydration and lack of sleep.

    After her recovery, this beauty came back on the scene as a plus size model and successfully worked for many designers including Marina Rinaldi, as well as the former MODE Magazine.

    Carre's story has Ms. Jones asking the question, "Have the pressures of the modeling world changed since the introduction of plus models to the industry? Unfortunately, no."

    "In my position, models open up to me about their experiences all the time," shares Jones. "The sad truth is that there are a lot of similarities between what Carre Otis experienced and what some plus models are still going through today in our industry. Plus models, as small as 14, are being asked to lose weight, as they are being told that clients do not want to use models larger than a 'small' 14 or 16."

    "And it doesn't stop there," comments Ms. Jones. "Plus models are now working out excessively, starving themselves and taking B-12 shots, hoping to lose weight and inches. Some are being asked to go under the knife to fix natural lines and wrinkles on the face, and we have seen many plump up their lips and Botox their faces, so much that they have been sent home by their clients. Smoking, drugs, both over the counter and illegal, are all being used by some plus model as a result of the pressure to be smaller in the plus-size industry."

    Jones continues, "The frustrating part about the plus size industry is that while we preach diversity, the size of the models representing us is going down. It is not uncommon practice for size 6 and 8 models to represent plus size fashion companies, while their plus size customer continues to ask for realistic images and models they can identify with."

    Jones is fed up with, "The lack of respect for plus women, and it's time to do something about it. We have a voice, and united we can make a big impact in several small ways:

    Support our plus-size models. Encourage them in social media; let them know that you see their work and appreciate their representing women with curves.

    Hit social media and publically thank brands and designers who do use plus size models in diverse sizes that are a true representation of their fashions.

    And for those companies 'not' getting it, impress upon them, with your spending dollars and voices, to market with 'visibly' plus-size models. If they want your plus-size dollars they should be representing you. Write letters, emails and post on their Facebook page and Twitter accounts; this will get their attention, and quickly."

    About PLUS Model Magazine
    Editor-in-Chief, Madeline Jones / PLUS Model Magazine (PMM), the, premiere virtual magazine, blog and media outreach celebrates the plus size fashion, beauty and plus modeling industries. PMM inspires readers to thrive in their curves, crave contemporary fashion and design their lives, on their own terms, sans apologies.

    ( August 23, 2013 -- The Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow, the first and largest online school in Ohio, officially began the 2013-2014 school year today.  Only highschoolers are logging into classes on August 23. Students in grades K-8 will follow suit on the following Monday. 

    "I'm already having a banner first day!" exclaimed Sarah Belcher, family and consumer sciences teacher. "Students are up early today. I have assignments completed, read receipts for the welcome email I sent, and a phone conversation about how to get started!"

    "I was pretty enthused about the first day already, but the student response has made me even more optimistic about this semester," she added.

    Tabitha Stitt, also a family and consumer science educator, said everything is in place.

    "After a short walk to the bakery this morning, I'm ready to start the new school year with my blueberry muffin and green tea in hand," she said.

    "Everyone seemed to be extremely busy getting everything in line for the school year to start off right," she added.

    Many new developments are almost at hand. Stitt has both eyes facing forward.

    "There have been many changes this year, including implementation of Common Core and SLOs, a focus on student data, and more flexible hours, which will all create a positive impact on students, teachers, and ECOT as a whole," she said.

    Heather Townley said being a mentor creates a unique perspective at the dawn of the school year.

    "We get to watch our students (which are the teachers) 'step off the bus,' and begin positively impacting the lives of their students," she said. "You know, that is the best part of teaching at ECOT...getting to be that impact for the students."

    "The crazy part is you feel that every day, every year, and the impact you leave just grows with every new roster," she added. "I hope that, as mentors, we are leaving that small positive impact with the teachers we get to work with and help too!"

    Gerald Cox, who teaches Healthy Living DEC, said he views the beginning of a new school like a holiday - brimming with anticipation.

    "We are all excited about the new people we meet and the relationships we will develop," he said. "The positive anxiety we feel about new classes, students and teachers is a unique and wonderful feeling. "

    "We plan to build on new school year momentum to lead our students to a positive and successful school year, as they continue to work towards graduation," he added.

    CAPITOL HIL. FRIDAY, ( August 23, 2013 -- "If Irish-Americans think they can forget about Northern Ireland and its bad old days of anti-Catholic discrimination, they better think again."
    That is how Fr. Sean Mc Manus -- President of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus - reacted to a damning Report on the way Catholics are still being discriminated against in housing.
    The Report, "Equality Can't Wait" by the United Nations-recognized " Participation And The Practice of Rights (PPR)," has found " chronic" housing shortages, that "a series of ministerial, statutory and council failures have compounded religious inequality in housing across North Belfast" and that "these failures have adversely impacted on the Catholic community".
    The Report also found:
    • A £133 million North Belfast Housing Strategy to tackle inequality failed
    • "Engineering" of a Belfast city center 'shared space' is being prioritized over tackling Catholic housing need, and
    • Protections which ring-fenced new social homes for areas impacted by religious inequality have been removed.

    The Report charges that the way the religious background of people in housing need is measured has been deceptively altered to reduce the number of Catholics facing "housing stress".
    PPR policy and research support officer Kate Ward added their findings show that "Catholics in North Belfast in need of housing have been repeatedly disadvantaged".

    Fr. Mc Manus conclude: " Blatant anti-Catholic housing discrimination was one of the injustices that propelled the launching of the Civil Rights Movement in Northern Ireland in 1968. The PPR was founded by the late Inez Mc Cormack, one of the four Mac Bride Principles signatories. How sadly ironic is that? The work of the Irish National Caucus is, therefore, now more important than ever."

    Video Music Awards is the first to use revolutionary combination of Ikegami HD camera, ARRI Super 35mm sensor, and FUJINON Cabrio zooms for live, multi-camera HDTV broadcast

    Wayne, N.J. ( August 23, 2013 -- FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Optical Devices Division has announced that the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards will be the first live, multicamera HDTV broadcast to use Ikegami HDK-97ARRI large-format CMOS cameras paired with digital cinema style FUJINON PL19-90 Cabrio Premier PL Mount zoom lenses. On August 25th, 2013, MTV will air the VMAs live from Barclays Center, a new state-of-the-art entertainment arena in Brooklyn, NY at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.

    "By enabling a multicamera broadcast workflow with a visually stunning film look, this perfect synergy between the Ikegami/ARRI Super 35mm CMOS sensor camera and the compact Cabrio lens offers HDTV broadcasts the look we've long sought," said Danny Walters, project engineer for Viacom Media Networks, Music Group and Logo, Technical Operations and Remote division in Nashville, TN.

    New Remote Productions, Inc, a business unit within Viacom, operates a fleet of remote production vehicles for use by Viacom Networks as well as third-party customers. Four production trucks will be parked in and around the Barclays Center for live coverage of the Red Carpet, the VMA All Access live stream, and the primetime event being produced by Viacom's Moonman Productions, to be directed by Hamish Hamilton.

    Prior to the NAB convention this year, MTV placed a large equipment order directly with Ikegami, including eight HDK-97ARRI cameras and eight FUJINON PL 19-90 Cabrio lenses, which arrived in May 2013. Walters explained that, as "big believers in the large-format imager philosophy for TV entertainment," they began searching for the large-format sensor camera first, including models by Sony and Red, and even took a hard look at the ARRI Alexa, But when Walters learned about the partnership between Ikegami and ARRI, the maker of the Super 35mm CMOS sensor, he chose the Ikegami HDK-97ARRI because of its ability to fuse the large-format imager with a traditional broadcast workflow.

    "When it came time to select the lenses, it was an easy choice," Walters said. "We've been very satisfied FUJINON users for a long time, and the fact that they had produced a lens that merges a broadcast- and ENG-friendly workflow with cine-style features and characteristics made it a natural choice for this application."

    Company tops Crain's Michigan Innovation Index for quality of its patents

    Walloon Lake, MI., ( August 23, 2013 -- Gas Technologies LLC (GTL), manufacturer of the innovative GasTechno® gas to liquids Mini-GTL® process, has received the #1 ranking of 100 companies in Michigan for the quality of patents granted in 2012. Crain's Detroit Business worked with Ocean Tomo, a leading intellectual property evaluation firm, which considered 50 different criteria to establish the ranking.

    The #1 quality ranking reflects the market-leading innovation being established by GTL, which focuses on the conversion and monetization of flared or stranded natural gas, biogas, coal mine methane, and landfill gas. Its patented process enables significant cost take-out at a mini-scale adaptable to 80% of the global methane reduction market, where gas-to-liquid solutions were previously not economically viable.

    "To be ranked #1 in a list of 100 companies that includes impressive R&D from world-class innovators in Michigan is truly an honor," said GTL CEO Walter Breidenstein. "It is validation of the ground-breaking nature of our work that is now coming to fruition. While gas-to-liquids has long been a proven technology at extremely large scales, our unique process enhancements will bring a much-needed cost-effective solution to the global broad market."

    GTL's patent protection extends to the overwhelming majority of the markets it is targeting worldwide. For example, in the flared gas market alone, a recent World Bank study estimates that 5.3 trillion cubic feet of natural gas is flared annually, a practice that wastes a lucrative alternate revenue source and emits nearly 350 million tons of CO2.

    In addition to the 2012 patents evaluated in the study, GTL has filed four more patent applications in 2013 and will announce a new "drop-in replacement" fuel patent application in September.

    About Gas Technologies LLC
    Gas Technologies LLC (GTL) is an alternative energy company and world leader in the single step conversion of methane to methanol. The GasTechno® platform converts methane into valuable commodity fuels, high-end intermediates and specialty chemicals via the GasTechno® family of technologies. GasTechno® plants are scalable, transportable and profitable at small volumes, monetizing even modest sources of CO2, methane, landfill gas, biogas and bio-methane. Our latest designs include a food and fuels production system that processes CO2 and methane, the greenhouse gases primarily responsible for global warming. The GasTechno® platform offers unique design and in engineering services for patent licensing of technologies involving natural gas processes and chemical processing plants.

    First Patients will arrive at the Hingham Residence in mid- September

    HINGHAM AND NORWELL, MA, ( August 23, 2013 -- NVNA and Hospice, the only independent nonprofit home healthcare agency serving Boston's South Shore, will begin accepting patients in mid-September at the area's first Hospice Residence in Hingham.

    Located on Turkey Hill adjacent to the Weir River Farm, the hospice residence will provide a much needed home for people under hospice care who can no longer stay in their own home. No such residence exists for South Shore residents; of the nine hospice homes in the state, the closest are in Needham and on Cape Cod.

    The Hospice Residence in Hingham will be available for individuals and families from across the South Shore. The beautiful historic home in Hingham has been transformed into a tranquil and peaceful place where patients facing the end of life may receive hospice care and families may gather to spend precious time with loved ones. The residence and grounds provide space for loved ones to support one another in a home like setting.

    With its fascinating local history it is a wonderful re-use for the beautiful property. Upon its opening, this will be the first of its kind on the South Shore. The residence will include 12 private rooms, each with its own bathroom, and will provide a tranquil and comfortable setting for patients to receive hospice care. The home sits on 3.62 acres on Turkey Hill Lane in Hingham.

    The home, originally an opulent private estate, became a haven for retired Quaker teachers in 1962 and then expanded into an assisted living residence over the years. But the Quaker organization that owned the property found it fiscally challenging to operate the 18-unit assisted-living facility and it went up for sale in 2012.

    The history of the home began when Ezra Thayer, a prominent Boston lawyer and dean of Harvard Law School, and his wife, Ethel, started summering in Hingham in the early 1900s. They bought a farmhouse on East Street - now home to the Trustees of Reservations' Weir River Farm - added acreage, and, between 1910 and 1912, built a large shingled house near the top of Turkey Hill. The house burned down in 1929 and the Thayer family built the current brick home. The third floor of the main house was a studio for Polly Thayer Starr, an accomplished artist. Her art is represented in many museums and universities throughout the country, including the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the Fogg Museum in Cambridge, MA.

    "It is with great joy that we open this non-profit hospice residence for the community," said Meg Doherty, Executive Director of the Norwell VNA and Hospice. "Having a hospice residence right here on the South Shore means that hospice patients who can no longer remain at home won't have to find a residence more than an hour away from their families. The location of the hospice residence takes the stress of traveling away from families and allows them to spend that valuable time with their loved ones. We are pleased to be able to offer hospice services in this wonderful setting."

    Debuts Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon in stores nationwide in September

    ( August 23, 2013 -- ONEHOPE Wine, one of the most popular cause-centric wine brands in America, will debut its first national expansion into Whole Foods Market this September. Produced in partnership with Rob Mondavi, Jr., ONEHOPE will launch two labels of its most popular varietals, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and will donate half of profits from each bottle to make a social impact. This will be ONEHOPE's first expansion into a national retailer since its inception in 2007.

    "This is the first time ONEHOPE has launched nationally with a retailer, and we could not be more inspired that it is with Whole Foods Market - a company whose people and mission are so aligned with ours when it comes to providing great products, exceptional experience and weaving in a greater purpose along the way," said Jake Kloberdanz, CEO of ONEHOPE. "We are happy to introduce our brand to customers and loyal supporters of Whole Foods, and we are confident that they will be fans of ONEHOPE too. Our team did everything possible to over-deliver on quality in the bottle, packaging, and social impact made with the sale of these exclusive wines."

    Featured wines available at Whole Foods Market include:

    - ONEHOPE Chardonnay has aromas of soft melon, delicate oak and tropical fruit. Balanced acidity and flavors of ripe pear and crisp apple are preceded by warm vanilla notes and finished with a sweet honeysuckle and floral essence. Retail Price: $10.99

    - ONEHOPE Cabernet Sauvignon displays hues of rich cherry and violet. Tantalizing aromas of blackberry and plum are married with a hint of vanilla from aging in both American and French oak. Flavors of blueberry, black currant and warm spice are accompanied by a smooth tannic finish that is integrated with semi-sweet chocolate nuances. Retail Price: $10.99

    "The quality of the wine paired with the great cause it supports made these ONEHOPE wines an obvious fit for Whole Foods Market," said Doug Bell, global wine buyer for Whole Foods Market.

    In line with Doug's statement - Whole Foods Market's expert on Conscious Capitalism and co-CEO, John Mackey, has historically stated - "You cannot build a good society solely on the basis of self interest." ONEHOPE and Whole Foods Market's commitment to quality wine is as strong as its commitment to the causes it supports. The goal of this partnership is to fund approximately 200 microloans to help alleviate poverty in the developing world. To achieve this, ONEHOPE will donate half of the profits from the sales of these wines to support micro-lending efforts.

    Started by a group of young entrepreneurs, the motivation behind ONEHOPE Wine began as a personal mission to help a friend with her fight against cancer; it evolved into a thriving business that always remains focused on a basic, but compelling principle: giving back is good business. The mission was to create a quality wine that donates to worthy causes year-round, with no caps and no end dates.

    Visit Whole Foods Market stores nationwide starting this September to purchase ONEHOPE Wine Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon.

    TORONTO, Ontario ( August 23, 2013 -- A Toronto-based start-up created a product that lets consumers use simple hand gestures and voice to control any device in the house, from the TV to the lights. The Flowton Controller, developed by start-up Flowton Technologies (Flowton), utilizes a built in color camera for motion tracking, with available depth camera support, as well as a microphone array to pick up on spoken keywords. To finance mass production beyond the prototype stage, the company is launching a Kickstarter campaign on Tuesday, August 20th, 2013 at noon, to raise $200,000 with the goal to have a ready product for consumers worldwide in March 2014.

    The natural user interface of the Flowton Controller (Controller) does not require a screen or any graphical feedback, and does not rely on reproducing a visible mouse pointer for navigation. For instance, simple left/right hand swipes may switch TV channels, while up/down may raise or lower the room temperature through a wireless thermostat. This is possible with the Controller's built-in RGB camera to capture the user's gestures. The Controller also has port for depth cameras, such as Xbox® Kinect™, as well as analogs, to grant the user an extended range of gestures to control electronics. The Controller communicates with devices through WiFi, Bluetooth, and a wireless infrared peripheral. Setting up the Controller is as easy as programming a universal remote. The Controller also has an array of microphones for keyword recognition to issue simple commands to even the simplest of home electronics.

    An extensive demo of the device in action can be seen on Kickstarter by searching for "Flowton" on

    The Controller was envisioned by the Flowton founder, Alec Gordon, who sought to recreate the natural interfaces of recent sci-fi films with available technology - computer vision. Flowton has generated IP for its gestural interface, with funding coming from angel investors and an NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada) grant.

    With the Flowton Controller, the company looks to set a benchmark as a leader in innovative consumer electronics. Beyond the current product, Flowton is planning to conduct further research into human-computer interaction and push the limits of product innovation.

    About Flowton Technologies

    Founded in March 2012 by York University and University of Toronto graduates, Flowton is looking to deliver innovative technologies to consumers worldwide. The company is privately owned. To enable faster growth, it is launching a Kickstarter campaign on Tuesday, August 20th 2013.

    Rancho Santa Margarita, CA - The triumvirate of swimming, biking and running - also known as the triathlon - is more popular than ever: USA Triathlon reported membership of more than 550,000 in 2012, a marked increase over the past decade.

The tri-part sport continued to grow from there, during both up and down economic climates.

    ( August 23, 2013 -- Includes Forward Curves Pricing for Base load, Spark and Clean Spark Spreads

    Schott OFT, a premium Hong Kong Commodities broker and Advisory, today announces the launch of 12 new price assessments aimed at bringing greater transparency to pricing in Hong Kong's electric power sector, where over-the-counter (OTC) electricity markets have become more liquid.

    "Trading activity has increased significantly in these markets. With forward-dated transactions practically doubling in the last year, the industry has been clamoring for more and faster information," said Schott OFT Chief Editor Carol Lawers. "Our new Hong Kong base load power assessments will not only provide Hong Kong with an independent source of daily market values, but they'll give Southeast Asia at large another baseline for price comparison."

    The price references include the following:
    Schott OFT Hong Kong Base load Power Assessments - Expressed in USD per megawatt hour (MWh), these forward curve assessments reflect the value of base load electricity supplied to Hong Kong's power grid for forward-dated delivery: month-ahead, quarter-ahead, second quarter-ahead and year-ahead.

    Schott OFT Hong Kong Spark Spread Assessments - The spark spread assessments indicate the profitability of operating gas-fired power plants versus coal-fired plants. They reflect the average price difference between the cost of gas and the equivalent price of electricity on any given day. The spreads are based on month-ahead and quarter-ahead Hong Kong base load power and gas price assessments, with plant efficiency ratings of 50% and 60%.

    Schott OFT Hong Kong Clean Spark Spread Assessments - The clean spark spreads represent the profit margins available to power generators after the costs of natural gas and associated carbon allowances under the Asian Emissions Trading System are taken into account. The Asian Emissions Trading System is a cap-and-trade program aimed at reducing pollution from carbon dioxide (CO2)-emitting installations.

    In its electric power assessments, Schott OFT employs a market-on-close time stamping methodology, which allows for cross commodity comparisons and facilitates the commonly used mark-to-market accounting practices.

    Schott OFT is a commodity broker for futures and commodity trading, which specialize in Broker Assisted trading at discounted commission rates. Schott OFT offers Discount Online futures trading account plans and Broker Assisted commodity account plans to meet the needs of serious commodity futures traders and commodity option traders.
