    Cash-strapped consumers looking to get loan proceeds through online loan applications run the risk of being scammed. Go AAGP offers a free, web-based resource designed to help consumers protect themselves from scams, before they apply.

    (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 -- Victimizing the vulnerable: Each year, thousands of consumers pursue the promise of quick, albeit much-needed, cash from payday loan, emergency loan, title loan, and loans for bad credit lenders, among others. In an effort to save time and maintain privacy, they unwittingly fill out an unsecure online loan application, sending their confidential information to cyber criminals. Now, consumers can verify the security of an online loan application website, before they apply, with the Go AAGP fraud checker, a free, web-based resource designed to help consumers protect themselves from scams: http://go-aagp.org/scams.html.

    "Go AAGP is dedicated to helping people learn how to protect themselves against online scams and make informed financial decisions," says Go AAGP CEO Lacey Synder. Before completing an online loan application, Synder makes the following recommendations:

    - Confirm website security (e.g., letter "s" appears at the end of http; third-party security verification (Norton, McAfee, etc.) and the address bar/text is green, indicating the installation of a trusted Symantec EV SSL Security Certificate

    - Beware of guaranteed loan approvals

    - Never pay upfront monies in exchange for loan approval

    She further warns that scammers typically have one of three goals: to swindle money directly, use for personal gain or sell the victim's information, most commonly social security numbers, employment history and banking details. Once sold, consumers are further victimized.

    "We have actually seen cases where consumers are harassed by phony debt collectors demanding payment for bogus debts or debts they do not owe, all because they applied for an emergency loan or a payday advance loan on an unsecure website." Synder also has tips for consumers with comprised information:

    - Report incident to local authorities and the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)

    - Notify financial institutions if banking details were disclosed

    - Monitor credit profile; take advantage of free annual reports

    "If Go AAGP can save just one person from falling victim to an online scam it was time well spent," she said.

    The information contained on the Go AAGP website can be applied to any item being purchased online. For more information or to verify the security and legitimacy of a loan application website, visit the following link: http://go-aagp.org.

    About the Company:
    Go AAGP does not broker loans and provides a completely free lender-matching service, where
    applicants can verify the security of a website before they apply. Lenders will, at their own discretion, perform credit checks if they deem it necessary.

    California Dentist Giri Palani Offers Safe Sedation with a Board Certified Anesthesiologist on Staff

    (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 --  Dr. Giri Palani understands that his Rancho Palos Verdes and Beverly Hills, CA patients will always have some reservations and anxieties about professional dental care. No matter how painless or gentle a procedure may be, these dental anxieties sometimes leave patients delaying the procedures they need to maintain good oral health. Dr. Giri Palani wants to make sure that all of his patients find that their procedures aren't just bearable, but are painless and pleasant. Total Smile Care offers sedation dentistry with a Board Certified Anesthesiologist on staff to ensure that patients are comfortable, relaxed, and completely safe during their dental visit.

    Naturally, some patients are uneasy about opting for sedation dentistry. Dr. Giri Palani wants his patients to understand how safe and comfortable sedation dentistry can be with Board Certified Anesthesiologist, Dr. Huang, on staff. Dr. Huang is highly skilled in all forms of sedation and creates a relaxing environment for patients. Every patient has different needs and concerns that lend to their need for dental sedation. This could be due to a medical or behavioral condition, bad past experiences, or that they just can't sit still. As a dental anesthesiologist, Dr. Huang is able to provide patients with the sedation that they need safely and effectively.

    Total Smile Care offers a number of sedation options. Anxiolysis, oral sedation, IV sedation, and nitrous oxide are all available under Dr. Huang and Dr. Giri Palani's care. Patients tend to be the most familiar with nitrous oxide gas. There is no need for injections and patients are conscious, but highly relaxed, throughout their procedure. However, oral sedation is becoming a more and more popular form of sedation dentistry. Oral sedation is completed by swallowing a simple medication that puts the patient into a state of deep relaxation. Although patients are still conscious when under this sedation, they are left with no memory of the procedure itself. This alleviates patient fears, while also ensuring they are cooperative and safe. Anxiolysis is another form of oral sedation that achieves a lighter sedation for patients with mild to moderate anxiety.

    If you are interested in sedation dentistry, Total Smile Care offers patients a safe and relaxing environment with professional Board Certified Anesthesiologist Dr. Huang on staff. Rancho Palo Verdes, CA patients can feel confident and comfortable knowing they are receiving pain-free, efficient dentistry at Dr. Giri Palani's practice.

    To learn more about sedation dentistry at Total Smile Care, visit www.sedation4dentistry.com or contact Dr. Giri Palani at his Rancho Palos Verdes location by calling 310-547-1128.

    Schaumburg, IL Dental Practice, Schaumburg Tooth Doctor, Uses Bridges to Improve Patient Smiles

    (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 --  Patients with missing, cracked, or damaged teeth can now find a simple solution in Schaumburg, IL. At Schaumburg Tooth Doctor, there are many different smile restoration services available, including dental bridges. Bridges are one of the best ways to restore the look and feel of your smile. This restoration is custom designed to replace a missing tooth and blend in with the rest of your smile. Bridges also protect against jaw misalignment, damage to surrounding teeth, and periodontal disease. If you are looking to replace a missing tooth, it's important to understand what to expect from your restoration. Schaumburg Tooth Doctor looks forward to explaining to all of their patients how bridges will benefit their oral health, cosmetically improve their smile, and restore their confidence.

    Dental bridges are designed to bridge the gap left by a missing tooth. This is accomplished by installing crowns on the neighboring teeth for support. Each supporting tooth is contoured, prepped, and covered with a supporting crown. With the use of local anesthetic, Schaumburg, IL patients are comfortable during the prepping process. The bridge restoration itself is created from an impression of your smile. This impression is sent to a lab where a restoration can be custom fabricated to create the most natural looking and feeling smile solution. While patients wait for the bridge to be made, they are fitted with a temporary solution that protects the teeth from any damage. The temporary restoration also enables them to continue their daily activities without apprehension or discomfort. When the bridge is completed, it is attached to the supporting teeth, providing Schaumburg Tooth Doctor patients with a sturdy, solid tooth that is designed to last for many years.

    After patients have adjusted to their new bridge, they are left with a natural looking smile that not only boosts their self-confidence, but also lets them return to their normal eating and oral health care routines.

    For more information about bridges in Schaumburg, IL, visit www.schaumburgtoothdoctor.com or call 847-584-8870 to schedule an appointment with Schaumburg Tooth Doctor.

    He suggests several important factors to consider when deciding to repair or replace a broken appliance

    Parks AZ  (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 --  Jerry Reinhart, owner of Appliance Service Today is often asked for help with the all important question; appliance repair versus replace. The local service technician has noticed how many people will throw out a good appliance when it would be more economical to have it fixed. Sometimes only a minor repair like replacing a fuse or adjusting a setting is all that is needed to get it working again.

    There are some cases where it is appropriate to replace a broken appliance. One rule of thumb in deciding between appliance repair versus replace is the fifty percent rule, which states the appliance should be repaired if the cost is less than half the price of a new one. But, this factor alone is not enough to make a wise choice.

    The neighborhood appliance repair man lists several other factors to consider such as the age of the appliance. All home appliances have an average useful life value, a number that represents the expected life of the appliance. Most appliances manufactured today are expected to last for over ten years. Of course, age is determined not only by number of years, but frequency of use. One that is used less and very well taken care of will last longer.

    It is more economical to repair expensive, high-end appliances than cheaper models. If the unit is less than 10 years old and has functioned well for the most part, then the owner should call an appliance service technician evaluate the problem. Appliance Service Today technicians will provide their honest opinion as to weather the unit is worth fixing or should be replaced.

    An appliance with a history of malfunction should be replaced. One that is breaking down often may have several faults making it weak as a whole. If for any reason one is unhappy with the appliance; it doesn't look right in the home or it doesn't fit right in the space, it's hard to use or simply inefficient, they may not want to spend the money repairing it.

    On the other hand, if they like the appliance, it matches well with surrounding décor, works great and has the best features and has been reliable in the past, then repairing it is a sensible idea. Purchasing a new appliance can be a lot of work when one considers researching new brands, getting one that looks right, disconnecting and disposing of the old one, having the new one installed, getting familiar with operating it and so on. Even though they come in standard sizes, the fit might be awkward and installation costly if a carpenter, plumber or electrician has to help with power, water or gas connections.

    Though it can be time consuming there are some advantages to buying a new appliance. Newer models are generally more energy efficient and have upgraded features making them easier to use. New washing machines and dishwashers have water saving capabilities. The latest clothes dryers have moisture sensors that turn it off when laundry is dry. Many new appliances are Energy Star rated.

    Customers enjoy both convenience and savings when they have Appliance Service Today repair their appliances. Professional appliance repair eliminates the need to shop for a replacement and find one that matches the other appliances and room décor.

    Appliance Service Today technicians are background checked and drug screened on a regular basis to ensure quality workmanship. Customers in Northern Arizona trust Appliance Service Today with all their home appliance service needs. Visit http://www.appliancerepairflagstaff.com/ to learn more.

    When people search the internet for an appliance repair service they discover many companies and wonder which one will be the most dependable and affordable

    Bellemont AZ  (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 --  A broken down appliance often leads to stress and frustration. The biggest reason for this is they only break down when they are being used, so the washer is full of wet, soapy clothes and the meal in the oven is half cooked. In many cases there is no warning of pending malfunction; it just happens, so few people are prepared in advance.

    Even the most durable, high-end appliances can breakdown and require the attention of a service technician. Searching for an appliance repair man is simple...Google search appliance repair in the city needed and find many options. Check the yellow pages (yes, they still exist) or call friends for recommendations.

    The local appliance repair man offers the following tips for choosing a service:

    • Check with the manufacturer

    • Call the store where the appliance was purchased

    • Ask friends and neighbors who they have used for appliance repair service.

    • Search the internet

    • Ask Facebook friends for a referral

    • Most importantly, before choosing an appliance service, check their credentials. Verify their qualifications and make sure they are licensed and insured.

    Home appliance repair, like any home service, can be expensive; but not near as costly as hiring an unqualified person. Large appliance repair companies usually keep up to date with the latest technology by receiving ongoing factory training. Smaller, local companies may belong to a trade association where they also receive education through annual conventions.

    Appliance Service Today is the premier independent appliance service provider in Northern Arizona. Lorraine and Jerry Reinhart bought the business in 1986 to provide professional appliance repair service to the Flagstaff community.

    Jerry Reinhart strives to provide the very best appliance repair experience possible, all things considered. Jerry understands how a broken down appliance can cause stress and anxiety for the customer, so he puts them at ease, assuring them help is on the way and a prompt solution will be provided.

    (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 --  The story of Joseph in the Bible is well chronicled. His story is one with value for persons aspiring to manage resources according to Dr. Steven B. DavidSon.  And a key to Joseph's success was giftedness.

    "Precisely! Joseph was endowed by God to manage resources.  He would be a central figure in rescuing God's people ultimately leading to the birth of Jesus.  There is a Proverb:  A man's gift maketh room for him,
    and bringeth him before great men (Proverbs 18:16).  I have found that advanced education, extensive training, and specialized certification are all important. But giftedness is the exceptional quality that cannot be learned or earned."

    DavidSon shares that it is clear when persons in the Quality Management discipline have a verifiable record of successes over an extended period, it is likely the person is gifted more than anything else.

    "Clearly, when a person has a record of improving programs, changing culture, and recognition for achievement it is more likely giftedness than any other factor.

    I guided the complete reversal of a program that was the eye-sore of the agency. The change was so dramatic within a year, program evaluators, sociologists, and others  clamored for interviews with us and
    program assessments. I'll never forget the words in an out-briefing by an evaluator in his assessment of our accomplishments.

    He dared to use the word, 'serendipitous.'  There with the facility's top executive, the evaluator would never use that language again.
    The research and data-gathering was compiled before I assumed the program. The precise actions and milestones were also presented at the same time.  Presentations were made concerning the plans and expectations to convince top managers to support the plan.
    We executed the chartered plan and the results gave rise to this person's visit."

    According to DavidSon even the best plans do need fortuitous events,  but the planning and execution is 90% percent of the success.

    "Depending on the size of the problem, everything possible may be needed.  Serendipity may have a part, and it is welcomed. However, nothing serendipitous happened in the ten years prior to my arrival. He would have been more accurate to have said giftedness. Giftedness represents the intangibles that cannot be measured.  It distinguishes the great from good."

    According to DavidSon, the same could be said for Joseph's accomplishments everywhere he went regardless of circumstances.

    Devoted to Quality Management and Process Improvement concepts for Church and non-profit organizations, Dr. DavidSon has worked in Management Engineering, Finance, and Production operations in government. He has won major awards over a span of nearly four decades employing a wide range of Process Improvement approaches. 
    He is the leading-edge founder of the nation's exclusive Christ-based organization devoted to Christ-based education and counseling.

    Marietta, GA Dentist Jay Kansal Protects and Improves Patient Smiles with Dental Bonding

    (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 --  Cracks, chips, and gaps are all common cosmetic issues among Dr. Jay Kansal's patients. These smile imperfections can make you feel uncomfortable and even keep you from fully smiling. While metal crowns and fillings can be used to address these dental issues, there are more modern alternatives readily available. Metal amalgam restorations were used to fix smile imperfections in the past, but their dark color made them highly noticeable. The material also increased patient sensitivity to temperature as the metal contracted and expanded. Dr. Jay Kansal provides his Marietta, GA patients with a more convenient and attractive alternative to metal amalgam fillings at Cobb Smiles. Dr. Jay Kansal uses bonding to restore smile imperfections and improve patient confidence and oral health.

    Bonding can be used to fix a number of common periodontal and cosmetic problems. Dr. Jay Kansal uses bonding to address any cavities, cracks, and gaps in a patient's smile. Anything that affects the overall shape of the tooth can benefit from bonding. Since this restoration is made of a white composite material, it blends in naturally with the rest of your smile. Bonding is nearly undetectable on the surface of the tooth and is securely attached to the tooth with a special adhesive gel. This creates a functional extension of the tooth, reshaping the structure and creating a stable and indistinguishable dental solution. The bonding services at Cobb Smiles provide Marietta, GA patients with a natural look and feel when correcting smile imperfections. Dr. Jay Kansal's patients have been able to improve their smiles and even replace old fillings with bonding. If you are interested in learning more about the benefits of dental bonding, visit Dr. Jay Kansal at Cobb Smiles to find out if bonding is the right dental solution for you.

    For more information on tooth bonding in Marietta, GA, visit www.cobbsmiles.com or call 770-952-0136 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Jay Kansal at Cobb Smiles.

    Online Schools Help Adult Students Overcome Fear of Using Computers to Earn Degree

    - Student Success Advisors Play Important Role as Support System and Direct Connection to Online University -

    AURORA, Colo.  (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 --  Computers are the technical, magical portals to knowledge. That's why the best online schools are prepared to show adult students how to get up and running quickly and easily.

    "Computer skills are commensurate with confidence, yet many professionals are struck with computerphobia - the fear and anxiety about computers and their use - once they are asked to complete tasks other than checking e-mail or surfing the Web," says Jen Chavez, new student success advisor at American Sentinel University.

    This is especially true when adult students realize that joining forums, posting comments, uploading documents or writing papers are key components to the education process.

    "Adult students don't necessarily rely on a computer like the younger generation does," explains Chavez. "So they're afraid to try new things, to click around and see what happens. They're afraid they might do some real damage or break something."

    What if I Break the Internet?
    It's no surprise that such fears exist. Computer language is filled with phrases like, system crash and system error: scary terms that make computers sound like bombs that are ready to explode.

    Chavez points out that there's a perception among many adult students - real or otherwise - that she or he may cause a problem that can't be fixed or press the 'wrong button.'

    "That's the kind of fear that prevents comfortable exploration and use," adds Chavez.

    Yet, new adult students are always surprised by how easy it is to gain the confidence needed to make the computer not only a friend, but also an ally.

    "It's just a lack of familiarity with a few basic things that open the door to a whole new set of skills," says Chavez.

    Quality Online Universities Teach and Assist with Computer Skills
    Students at a traditional campus-based school receive a thorough orientation that includes a physical tour of campus resources, a tour of the library, academics buildings and the student union.

    For an online learning experience, however, what students really need is help mastering the most important tool they'll need to be a successful: their computer.

    "Adult students are very pleasantly surprised to find out that computers skills are easier to master than they thought, especially if there are friendly, unhurried student success advisors by their side," adds Chavez.

    Chavez provides tips for what adult students should look for when selecting an online university to earn their degree.

    -Resources: When choosing an online college or university, it is important to select a school that provides resources such as screen sharing (i.e., the ability for an advisor to share what's visible on their computer screen with a remote user) and webinars (i.e., informative online seminars covering computer basics, tips on writing papers, live chats with deans, etc.) to help new students get acquainted with the online learning environment.

    But Chavez points out that it's not enough to simply have these resources available to students.

    An online university should provide proactive outreach and make it a point to get to know their students from day one and talk with them on a weekly basis, especially in their first course, from admissions through to graduation.

    "Going to an online school can feel very isolating and at American Sentinel we want students to know that they are not alone in cyberspace and that they have an online community available that will support and help them every step of the way," says Chavez.

    -Online Research Tools: A great online university will also show adult students how to perform successful searches in the online library to garner the best results.

    Chavez says that it's essential for students' success that they learn from the university how to conduct research and capture valuable data for class input and papers.

    "Being able to lean on a partner like a dedicated student success advisor to learn the nuances of the online library and how to navigate through the resources makes the student experience much more enjoyable," she adds.

    Student success advisors play an important role as the support system and direct connection to the university and help students with basic navigation, computer skills, interactive orientation and more.

    -Online Orientation: New students should receive also their orientation over the computer and be shown how to navigate an online classroom, post contributions to a live discussion, how to upload and save documents and how to copy and paste information.

    Additionally, students should be shown how to save and organize files, use a Web browser and organize folders based on their hierarchy or levels of importance.

    Chavez says that a good orientation will help the once computerphobic to become computer-friendly.

    "Students realize that computers are less complicated - or mysterious - than they thought," says Chavez.

    With a few helpful instructions and a patient advisor to lean on, new students quickly gain the confidence they need to be successful.

    "Most students are so surprised at how easy it is to gain the basic skills they need to join discussions, perform research and write papers once they have the confidence to know where to click and what to expect," adds Chavez.

    Chiropractic and Pregnancy and The Webster Technique
    Dr. Brian H. Wikoff & Associates
    Back to Life Chiropractic
    714-541-5433
    http://www.drwikoff.com/

    Orange County, CA Chiropractor, Dr. Brian Wikoff has midwives, and medical doctor's referring to him for Natural Pregnancy Care

    (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 --  Pregnancy is an exciting time, but also a challenging time on a woman's body. It takes a new shape and her body goes through amazing changes. This exciting time also has some surprising aches and pains that go along with it. The transition and development of the baby in the pelvis is just the start. At month 5, a new hormone kicks in called, relaxin. This hormone "relaxes" the pelvic ligaments and prepares the pelvis for delivery. But weeks before this happens just the new weight can cause pressure on the sciatic nerve. This new weight and pressure can shift the pelvis out of alignment and misalign the bottom lumbar vertebra. These changes can cause back pain, pelvic pain and sciatica. The last thing a hormonal pregnant mom needs is pain. So, now what? Chiropractic to the rescue! Back to Life Chiropractic of Santa Ana, and Dr. Wikoff are here to help!

    Doctors of Chiropractic have been helping pregnant moms for over 100 years with the changes during pregnancy. Special adjustments are given. This puts the spine and pelvis back in alignment and mom's smile for the first time in a while. After all, pregnant moms are limited in what chemicals they are allowed to take. Sometimes, they are actually told to live with the pain. However, this is unacceptable to Dr. Brian Wikoff, a chiropractor in Santa Ana, owner of Back to Life Chiropractic. Dr. Wikoff has 3 children all of whom he delivered himself at home, of course with the help of his wife, who was committed to the natural birth process. Dr. Wikoff initially got into chiropractic for sports performance, but fell in Love with family chiropractic care.

    Dr. Wikoff, of Back to Life Chiropractic, took extra classes on pregnancy adjusting and pediatrics. Soon, he became certified in pregnancy treatments and holds a certificate in chiropractic pediatrics from the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. After being in practice for 20 years and working with many medical doctor's and nurse midwives, Dr. Wikoff of Back to Life Chiropractic, in Orange County, has built a reputation for taking soft loving care of newborn's for various conditions, and for relieving pregnant moms of the aches and pains that can accommodate pregnancy. Dr. Wikoff has special tables for pregnant moms and the results are amazing. Easier, faster, and safer births are reported by his patients. The word is spreading fast that you don't have to suffer or be put in a risk category for labor. One of Dr. Wikoff's favorite techniques is the "Webster Technique." This is a special treatment used to help moms and babies when there is a breech presentation. A breech presentation often turns into a cesarean delivery. But, this may not be necessary. Dr. Wikoff of Back to Life Chiropractic of Santa Ana and Tustin explains, we are flipping babies like pancakes over here in our Orange County office. This famous Webster technique has an 80% success rate within two weeks and does so without ever touching the baby! "The softest most gentle touches get the best results says", Dr. Wikoff. "I love the look on the moms faces after the follow up ultra sound when their told the baby is now head down and a regular delivery is now expected, I live for that."

    Chiropractic care during your pregnancy may be the answer and Dr. Wikoff would love to be your chiropractor.

    Applied Robotics' SmartComm™ for the Sigma line of Tool Changers takes Communications information in the plant to a higher level as the only Communications Module on the market to offer Diagnostics and support many major industrial buses including; DeviceNet, Ethernet IP, Profibus, CC-Link, Profinet, etc.

    Glenville, New York  (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 -- Applied Robotics Inc., a leading global manufacturer of robotic end-of-arm tooling and connectivity solutions, today announced the introduction of its new Communications Module, SmartComm™ for  the Sigma line of Tool Changers. The SmartComm™ is the first of its kind in industrial communications as it supports many major industrial buses (DeviceNet, Ethernet IP, Profibus, CC-Link, Profinet, etc.) and is the only Communications Module to offer Diagnostics.

    Module Diagnostics
    are available via webpage and advanced diagnostics via ARI Management Software. Customers can schedule maintenance and run various reports. There are even specific diagnostics available for the tool changer itself. Customers can view, track and download IO status, set and read Maintenance counter functions, view timing of functions and even view and download Cycle Time statistics to pinpoint problems. The ARI Management Software for SmartCommTM allows for testing and operation of the tool changer with no control system. Customers can view performance graphs and download/export performance reports, troubleshoot network connections and even quickly identify problems with downstream customer devices. Customers can see if there is a problem with their other connected devices, independent of the Tool Changer.  This is revolutionary in Communications Modules.

    "The future of plant automation is here with the SmartComm™. Our customers demand smarter and more flexible communications to integrate with their wide range of existing bus networks," said Cliff Annis, Vice president of Applied Robotics Inc. "SmartComm™ is ready to meet that demand."

    Phoenix, AZ (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 -- There are three Phoenix-area apartment communities that have found a unique way to create "value" in apartment living! Beginning last fall, the communities (Aspire Pinnacle Peak, Phoenix, and Visions Energy/Visions Serenity, both Peoria) began serving hot breakfasts to their residents every week day morning. The communities, managed by Weidner Apartment Homes, call the program "Wake Up with Weidner", and it's not your typical "bagel-and-coffee" breakfast. Early each morning Barb Vik, the Café Specialist, rises before the sun is up to cook everything from eggs and bacon or biscuits and gravy to pancakes and waffles - there is even a vegetarian option. "The line forms around 6:45 am with folks who are on their way to work or school...other residents will sit and visit, read the paper and drink coffee until 9:00am," said Ms. Vik.

    The communities are currently hosting 100+ residents every morning. And what do the residents think of this? "It has been a blessing for so many of them," said Community Director Lisa Stoss. "We started the Wake Up with Weidner program as a way to give something back to our residents, something special. It has become so much bigger than we had envisioned; it has made a real difference in the lives of so many here. Who doesn't like having someone make them a hot meal to start their day?"

    In addition to the increased value to residents, the biggest compliments have been about making new friends, enjoying a great meal, and seeing a friendly face in the morning.

    "We fell on some hard times in our family and downsized considerably. We were skeptical about moving
    to an apartment. Living here at Aspire has been a great soft landing to a big fall...you throw Barb's breakfast in and it is crazy to imagine living anywhere else." - Jerry R., Aspire resident

    "Barb is great and my daughter and I look forward to the breakfast every morning - it is one of the reasons I moved in hear [sic]." - Brock M, Aspire resident

    "I really enjoy after working out and being able to come down to a smiling face, and hot breakfast with Barb. It's something to look forward to, and be able to meet new friends." - Jerry E, Aspire resident

    It turns out it may be good business as well. Stoss noted that renewals among residents at the three communities have increased as a result of the program. "People are renewing their lease because of it!"

    While currently rolled out at two communities, Weidner is looking at extending the program to more of their communities in the Valley. "We are definitely going to do more things like this for our residents, whether it's breakfast at other communities, pizza night, or something else. This is just the beginning."

    Bellingham, WA (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 - A new online help website for prospective business and finance majors has opened up.

    Finance Degree Online is a website where prospective students from any part of the USA can learn about universities, private schools, community colleges and vocational schools that offer classes or degrees in the finance area of business.

    Maria DeMars, who manages the website, explained, "Obviously, many of our site's visitors are high school seniors who are nearing graduation and are trying to decide which colleges to send applications to. But we also have a good amount of adults who are thinking about going back to school, either to finish the degree they were working on or to start in a brand new field."

    The biggest change DeMars has seen in the last decade is the growth of private and specialty schools. "The students of today have lots of options when it comes to learning," continued DeMars, "They have online classes, vocational schools, technical institutes and for-profit institutions, it isn't all about just sitting in a college classroom for four years."

    The FinanceDegreeOnline.net website describes the typical finance undergraduate degree and allows any interested visitor to perform an unlimited amount of database searches for schools around the country who may be offering classes or degree programs in finance.

    "Employment numbers aren't very good right now," says DeMars, "But finance majors are historically one of the top majors when it comes to being able to find that ever-important first job. Employers know that finance graduates have a certain set of skills and job recruitment on campus is still strong for students about to graduate with a bachelor's degree in finance."

    About FinanceDegreeOnline.net
    Finance Degree Online is an Internet resource for students who are considering either enrolling in a college business or finance program, or are thinking about merely signing up for a single class at a local community college. For more information, visit www.FinanceDegreeOnline.net.

    (PRBuzz.com) March 8, 2013 -- On February 27, 2013, Rocket Steel Buildings Canada www.rocketsteelcanada.com/specials.htm introduced a new Commercial Base Connector in three specific configurations to correspond with each pre-engineered steel building http://www.rocketsteelcanada.com/buildings.htm model sold, A, Q, P and S-Models. Rocket's trussless-style steel buildings are easily expanded and very portable or made permanent with the use of a base connector. Used for new and existing slabs, the new Rocket Commercial Base Connector is strong, easy to install and very economical.

    Configured exclusively for each model that Rocket Steel Buildings offers, the new connectors ensure a perfect fit. The P-Model and S-Model buildings utilize a 90 degree base angle. Each panel bolts to the connector's 9.125" backside flange and a connector clip secures the outside edge of each panel to the base of the connector. The Q-Model and A-Model buildings secure panels to the base connector http://www.rocketsteelcanada.com/aboutus.htm aided by a connector wing and a connector clip using a varying degree base angle. All standard models, with the exception of a Q80-24, can utilize the new Commercial Base Connector http://www.rocketsteelcanada.com/features.htm.

    Made from thick 16-gauge galvanized steel, each 122.5" connector comes predrilled and ready for assembly. The A-Model and Q-Model wings are also galvanized steel. Rocket offers a special Commercial Endwall Connector in addition to the Commercial Base Connector for sidewalls. Together, these connectors provide a complete foundation connection system for the entire metal building http://www.rocketsteelcanada.com/models.htm. Every building comes with a drawing packet including detailed connector installation guidelines.

    This new Commercial Base Connector is less expensive and easier to install than any other method of securing sidewall panels. Correctly installed, the new connector provides a sound transition from the foundation to the sidewall panels sealing-out moisture and preventing insect infestation. This connector saves time by speeding-up a building's construction schedule.

    When expanding an existing steel building, Rocket does not recommend the new Commercial Base Connector for use in conjunction with a Welded Base Plate, as used in the original construction. However, Rocket does recommend consultation with their engineering department with regard to the expansion of any existing steel buildings.

    ABOUT ROCKET STEEL BUILDINGS CANADA
    More than 40 years of metal building design, engineering and manufacturing experience come built-in to every Rocket steel building. Rocket's manufacturing plant maintains superior standards for quality control, while utilizing state-of-the-art machinery, robotics and the highest quality materials in the industry.
