    WASHINGTON, DC (PRBuzz) March 7, 2013 --  The March issue of the Louis D. Brandeis Center's Brandeis Brief features a prominent review essay on a controversial question that has divided the field of contemporary anti-Semitism studies. The essay, by Louis D. Brandeis Center President Kenneth L. Marcus, addresses whether anti-Semitism is a unique phenomenon or merely a particular example of a broader social phenomenon such as xenophobia or racism. President Marcus observes that this divisive issue led to two highly emotional protests at a recent academic anti-Semitism confab. The Brandeis Brief is the electronic newsletter of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law.

    In the newly released Brandeis Brief, Marcus reviews a new book by German political scientist Clemens Heni, which argues that anti-Semitism must be viewed as a discrete and separate problem, Antisemitism: A Specific Phenomenon (Berlin: Critical Edition, 2013). Marcus argues that Heni's judgments may be viewed as "unfair, mean-spirited, or even brutal," but that this does not mean that Heni is wrong, at least in his major thesis on anti-Semitism's singular character. 

    The same issue also describes recent developments at Brooklyn College. CUNY's Brooklyn campus has drawn heated denunciations for a recent conference that was dedicated to promoting a boycott of the State of Israel. In particular, many political figures and commentators criticized Brooklyn College's political science department for co-sponsoring the anti-Israel event. The department's co-sponsorship was viewed by some as tantamount to endorsement of a one-sided and arguably extreme political presentation. Worse, at least four Jewish students were allegedly removed from the event because they carried flyers that indicated support for the Jewish state. Some commentators have described this as a flagrant violation of the students' freedom of speech and right to academic freedom.

    About the Louis D. Brandeis Center

    The Louis D. Brandeis Center, Inc., or LDB, is an independent, nonprofit organization established to advance the civil and human rights of the Jewish people and promote justice for all. The Brandeis Center conducts research, education, and advocacy to combat the resurgence of anti-Semitism on college and university campuses. It is not affiliated with the Massachusetts University, the Kentucky law school, or any of the other institutions that share the name and honor the memory of the late U.S. Supreme Court justice.

    Additionally, EPS- Global has created ancillary companies: Emergency Recovery, Healthcare Billing Solutions Group and Day 180 Auto Billing. Growth for the combined companies is projected to increase by more than 500% during the 2013 calendar year. The organization expects to significantly increase the total number of employees to more than 100 by the end of the year.

    "One of the many reasons we selected the Research Park was because of its synergy with Florida Atlantic University," said Bobbie Celler, Esq., founder of Electronic Payment Systems - Global. "Our interests strongly align with FAU's Healthcare, Technology, Accounting and Business Management programs and we are eager to collaborate and share resources with both faculty and students."

    EPS - Global will offer paid co-op and internship opportunities to FAU undergraduate and graduate students to educate and groom for potential hire. The firm plans to work with FAU's Master of Health Administration Program by offering students a hands-on learning experience of

    "We are delighted to welcome Electronic Payment Systems - Global into the Research Park," commented Andrew Duffell, President & CEO of the Research Park. "Managing and reigning in healthcare related costs is a national priority and it affects all of us. EPS - Global has developed extraordinary healthcare software that will greatly assist healthcare providers in capturing data, processing claims and expediting efficiencies for hospitals and related healthcare finance improvement processes."

    San Juan Island, WA (PRBuzz) March 7, 2013 -- "You can't unify relationships, materials or ideas if you don't use the glue you need to accomplish this goal," claims an 83 year old hiker of Young Hill in the San Juan Island National Historical Park of Washington State. "Taking this single climb daily for over 22 years has helped me identify and successfully apply the adhesive that the divided sides of the Sequester, and most other squabbles, need to use, be they personal or global."

    The hiker, Dr. Michael J. Cohen, author of "The Web of Life Imperative," says, "This Sequester solution arises from the spirit of the land in combination with the thinking of elected representatives. After all, this is a National Park that the U. S. Government set aside in 1966 to honor the peaceful settlement of a dispute that prevented a war against Great Britain in 1858." Cohen says, "This resolution makes perfect sense. It is reasonable to recognize that we can't build concrete solutions if we don't use concrete."

    The glue Cohen refers to is his invention of an organic form of psychology that only works if folks are in conscious sensory contact with a natural area, backyard or backcountry. He calls it the art of Educating, Counseling and Healing with Nature (ECHN) and he identifies it as a hard science because it brings the undeniable attraction energies of "nature's universal dance" into play as part of any relationship.

    Cohen, author of the ECHN book that founded the science of Natural Attraction Ecology is the Director of the Institute of Global Education's Project NatureConnect program of Applied Ecopsychology at Akamai University. He notes that, "The peaceful unifying powers of natural attraction are self-evident to anybody who has spent quiet time in a natural area. Our great problem is that we learn to deny their critical value in our lives and livelihoods. My daily walks in the National Park these past decades helped me validate the powerful contributions of ECHN to personal, social and environmental well-being. ECHN is now the heart of Eco-Art Therapy and many other health and wellness processes that my students are developing.

    "ECHN works wonderfully," Cohen says, "Because it helps us create moments that let nature's dance in the environment reconnect its unifying energies to itself within us. This normal connection is torn and corrupted in the U. S. Congress and in most other parts of Industrial Society because, on average, we are socialized to spend over 95 percent of our time and 99 percent of our thinking and feeling disconnected from the balancing and purifying powers of nature's dance, in and around us. ECHN gives us a financially subsidized antidote for this corruption."

    Campus of Caring has partnered with  NVNA and Hospice  to bring a non-profit hospice residence to the South Shore. Upon its opening later this year, 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 and is currently being renovated. Proceeds from the brunch will help offset the purchase price and fund the renovations.

    About the Partnership of Campus of Caring and NVNA and Hospice

    In a partnership that reflects their shared mission to bring the first non-profit hospice residence to the South Shore, Campus of Caring and Norwell VNA (NVNA) and Hospice are utilizing the resources of both organizations to raise the capital funds necessary to offset the purchase and renovation costs of the Hingham property that will become the new hospice residence. Located on Turkey Hill adjacent to the Weir River Farm, the hospice residence will provide 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. For more information on this project call (781) 610. 1407.

    (PRBuzz) March 7, 2013 -- After appearing in publications such as the Daily Telegraph, the New York Times, and Cosmopolitan, many people have been going online to try to find out more about the Proactol Plus diet pill.

    Indeed there has been even more publicity for this product in the UK in recent months after it emerged that Gemma Collins, from The Only Way Is Essex, is using this particular weight loss pill.

    So after so much publicity, the popular diet pill website Pills-For-Weight-Loss.com has decided to post a new article that not only lists all of the key benefits, but also features a useful video that will answer many people's questions.

    This Proactol Plus diet pill video explains how it actually helps people lose weight, and includes customer testimonials from previous customers to show that it does actually work.

    It also highlights the fact that it has been proven to be effective in multiple clinical trials, and was found to bind up to 27.4% of dietary fat, whilst also suppressing the appetite and reducing cravings.

    Plus unlike the vast majority of weight loss supplements, it also mentions the fact that it comes with a 180 day money back guarantee.

    (PRBuzz) March 7, 2013 -- In the finance world, an angel is a person who invests in a startup company or idea. Bringing angels and business people together has been a word of mouth and hit or miss proposition for years.

    Now there's an online meeting place where the angels can meet entrepreneurs. GlobalAngelInvestorsNetwork.com (GAIN) takes people with a business idea and puts that idea and plan in front of people with capital to invest.

    "GAIN is just a natural fit for the internet," said Milton Arch. "Small companies, even a one-man operation with a great idea, often don't have the resources to travel to conventions. Even if they do, the atmosphere at those giant meetings is frenetic. An entrepreneur doesn't have time to make a solid pitch for his idea and the investors are constantly being distracted."

    GAIN is attracting some companies with tremendous promise. For example, Hail Protector http://www.HailProtector.com is a revolutionary company that manufactures a hail protective car cover with an early warning hail storm alert service that alerts owners on their mobile devices and computers. The hail protective car cover itself is proven to largely eliminate damage from hail stones even larger than softballs. Automobile hail damage, in the USA alone, is an over $1 Billion issue each year. The Hail Protector technology is a first for the Automotive Industry. It was invented and developed by Michael Siciliano and Steven Krug. "I am convinced that Hail Protector will go on to be a blockbuster company with record high sales", says Milton Arch of GAIN, www.GlobalAngelinvestorsNetwork.com

    However, whether the company is large or very small GAIN makes things simple for Entrepreneurs. A person with a business plan outlines their idea. The information is then uploaded to the website. Those with a business idea which needs capital should contact GAIN at info@GainMarketplace.com for more information.

    "The business doesn't have to worry about making a gaff in a presentation. They can take time to get everything right and smooth," Mr. Arch said. "They really do get to put their best foot forward and they don't have to worry about interruptions, delays or other hazards of a live presentation."

    An investor then can sort through the proposal at GAIN's website and select the ideas which look most promising or are the most interesting.

    "This is where GAIN really takes off," he said. "Now investors can be anonymous. They can look over proposals without anyone else knowing what they are doing. The investor also controls the amount of contact they want to have. A request for more information can be as great or as limited as the investor wants. The investor also doesn't feel pressured and can review the proposal as often as he wants."

    GAIN offers regular updates to investors when companies are added to the GAIN website.

    Mr. Arch does say GAIN's investment model is not for everyone. He states that investors need to have at least a net worth of over $1 million and have made $200K in income over the past two years. And that they contact their attorneys prior to making any investments. Additionally, investments in these projects/companies should be considered high risk.

    North Miami woman gets injured by appliance and gets stonewalled by retailer to pay her medical expenses.

    Miami, FL  (PRBuzz) March 7, 2013 -- What's worse than waking up in the morning from a good night's sleep to the smell of smoke coming from your kitchen? Witnessing your mini-fridge on fire. That's what one North Miami resident said to have happened to her in her home in Sunny Isles.

    "Why should my medical expenses go unpaid because of a defective unit?" said Marina Kushner, an author. Kushner suffered from smoke inhalation and burns. Now she wants a compensation for her medical expenses. But receiving that is not going to be simple.

    Kushner's trouble began on August 27, 2011, after she purchased a Black & Decker 1.7 mini-refrigerator for $49 from the Walmart in North Miami Beach. She'd used it only for 2 weeks before this unit flamed up and caused her to be injured. "I was shock," Kushner says, "I didn't know that refrigerators can be dangerous. If I wasn't home to stop the fire, I would lose everything."

    Kushner went to small claims court to sue Walmart for $5,000 to cover her medical expenses. Small claims court is designed to be a quick, inexpensive way to settle lesser legal disputes. However, after 15 months being tied up by Walmart's lawyers, the case drags on. "Walmart offered me $250 to settle, which I found offensive. Who knew such a small claims court case would be treated like such a big deal" Kushner said.

    Kushner has now been requested to appear for a deposition. "Walmart is wasting time and money--both their own and mine, but I am not going to give up," Kushner said as she continues to struggle with the flashbacks of that day.

    This isn't the first time a Black & Decker appliance had caught on fire. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, it announced to recall of 67,000 Black & Decker chest freezers over a potential fire hazard. The Black & Decker brand freezers were sold exclusively at Walmart from January 2010 through September 2010.

    Many homeowners are baffled at how can clean water can cause rusty stains on the sink and tub?

    Des Moines IA  (PRBuzz) March 7, 2013 -- The local water softener installer provides a solution to a common problem that few homeowners understand. Many are baffled when water that appears to be clean leaves rusty stains on the sink and bathtub. The local water treatment specialist explains how the problem is caused by minerals found in hard water.

    According to the water softener experts with Iowa Soft Water, different types of iron found in water can lead to a variety of problems. Ferrous iron is a clear iron that can cause rust stains when it comes into contact with oxygen. A water softener will filter this type of iron; however, excessive levels may need more aggressive treatment. The water softener specialist will test the water to determine the level of iron present.

    Another type of iron found in water is ferric iron which is orange in appearance and can be filtered by a water softener if the level is not too excessive. A third type of iron staining can result form an iron reducing bacteria. Iron bacteria can cause mechanical problems with water using appliances and must be eliminated with chlorine or bactericidal conditioning technology.

    When iron levels are excessive the local water softener experts recommend an iron filter known as the iron curtain. They will install this piece of equipment in addition to the water softener to treat water for both iron and odor.

    Iowa Soft Water is the leading water conditioning experts in the state, providing water treatment products to homes and businesses. Learn more about eliminating problems caused by iron in the water supply at http://www.iasoftwater.com/ironcurtains.html

    San Bernardino Ca (PRBuzz) March 7, 2013 -- TVC+Latino, one of the fastest growing television networks in the United States announced today an agreement with PLS, a leading financial services company to air creative specific commercials in 4 of TVC's markets; New York City, Los Angeles, Dallas and Chicago plus nationally.

    According to Jose Aquino" It is very exciting to have a relationship with one of the fastest growing companies in America. I think that our recent investment in trafficking technology and our partnership with Broadview Technologies, HMS and Tulix Systems is paying off already. We have moved our operations to the Cloud, which gives us unlimited growth potential. In addition to our technology, the ability for local ad insertion in all our markets positions us well with large organizations seeking to target 2nd and 3rd generation Latinos, especially those 18-49 years of age, and to specify their creative by DMA".

    Mr. Aquino added "It's no secret that within the television industry, the growth now is with Latino viewer. The numbers tell the story: According to the census, the U.S. Hispanic population jumped by more than 40 percent in the past decade. The nation's 50 million-plus Hispanics now make up 16 percent of the TV-viewing public and growing rapidly. Its small wonder that major companies like PLS want to tap into this viewing market".

    Mr. Aquino continued "Our bi-lingual programming celebrates the genius and beauty that is the Latino culture and heritage. The programming is focused on sports, entertainment and news, programming that is pertinent to our audience of second and third generation Latinos. We have plans to expand to 20 additional markets by year end, and will continue to create and produce new programming pertinent to our target audience".

    Recommended by a famous doctor, the Raspberry Ketone Max supplement has become the most wanted weight loss product.

    (PRBuzz) March 7, 2013 --  Raspberry Ketones Max is the latest rage in the diet supplement arena. Ever since raspberry ketones were mentioned on the most famous doctor's show in December 2012, the demand for raspberry ketone supplement has increased substantially.

    Raspberry Ketone supplement pills have been listed as the 'New Miracle Fat Burner in a Bottle' guaranteed to burn away the extra and excess body fat. Since it is extracted from pure raspberries, there is no onset of negative side effects.

    Raspberry Ketone Official Website

    Lab studies regarding the extract have been performed in Korea and Japan. In the Japanese study, a group of mice who were subjected to a high fat diet were administered with the raspberry ketone extract and as a result, they did not get obese. In the Korean study, a group of male rats underwent the same kind of diet with high fat content for 6 weeks. Then they were administered with high doses of raspberry ketone for 5 weeks with the same diet which prevented an increase in their body weight and reversed the effect of weight gain from their diet.

    However, it should be noted that there is no scientific study based on humans. It is true that experimental study on rodents are precursors to human study as mice have approximately 85% similarity to human DNA. It is advised to consult a doctor or physical trainer before using any diet supplement along with a suitable diet plan.

    The concentrated extract in one 100 mg dietary pill of raspberry ketone is equivalent to the amount present in almost 90 pounds of fresh raspberries. Raspberry ketones trigger the hormone Adiponectin in humans, which is sometimes called the thin hormone. People who are overweight have lower levels of Adiponectin in their bodies. The raspberry ketone extract helps to charge up the thin hormone and increases the body's metabolism. As a result, the body burns away fat faster and uses existing fats as fuel, giving a boost to the body's energy levels while simultaneously decreasing the ability to store fat.

    Adiponectin directly influences diabetes and helps to prevent it. The hormone is released when the body undergoes brisk exercise therefore it is safe to say that the raspberry ketone extract would show optimum results combined with an exercise plan and a diet high in protein and low in carbohydrates.

    About Raspberry Ketones Max
    Raspberry Ketones Max is a promising dietary supplement which can help dieters achieve their weight loss goals. It should be kept in mind that the pill is only a supplement and acts as a catalyst in speeding up the natural weight loss process which requires following a balanced diet and regular exercise.

    Interested folks may also try Raspberry Ketone trial offer.

    CVMobile, a free, downloadable mobile phone app, is now offering Web Call Back Service.

    Montreal, Quebec  (PRBuzz.com) March 7, 2013 -- CVMobile, an international long distance calling and texting company, announces Web Call Back Service availability through its downloadable mobile phone app, saving users money on international long distance calls.

    A free, downloadable mobile phone app, CVMobile offers many free, convenient features and can save users more than 90% on their local and international long distance phone calls anywhere in the world, using Wi-Fi, 3G/4G, or their cellular carrier voice network.

    The President of CVMobile, Alejandro Bitar, explained, "CVMobile's free mobile phone app makes it easy for our customers to save money on all their international long distance mobile phone calls, using our Web Call Back Service."

    Bitar explained, "CVMobile's Web Call Back Service works for international long distance calling all over the world, by splitting an otherwise very expensive international call into two cheaper calls at our low long distance rates, through the CVMobile website. For callers to save money using our callback system, they simply enter two phone numbers on our website: the number they want to call and their own phone number. The CVMobile Web Call Back Service then calls both phones, and the user is connected to the number they called. The cost is then only for those two numbers instead of a high international call with roaming fees. For example, if you are in the U.S. with access to a fixed line and you want to call a mobile number in Morocco, you'd enter the French fixed line number and the Moroccan mobile number on the Web Call Back page on our website. Instead of a high cost international calling fee for directly dialing the number while roaming, you'll only be charged for calling a US landline plus a Moroccan mobile number."

    The free downloadable CVMobile app is available for most popular mobile phones, including iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Nokia and more. More information about Web Call Back Service and the free downloadable CVMobile phone app can be found at cvmobile.net.
