    New York City Dentist Andrew Levy Redesigns and Reshapes Patient Smiles with Veneers

    ( May 9, 2013 -- Enhancing the appearance of your smile is easier than ever before. There are many cosmetic services that are designed to brighten your teeth and correct chips and gaps. In addition to services that address these individual imperfections, veneers are capable of making over a patient's entire smile. Dr. Andrew Levy offers this cosmetic service to patients who want to correct flaws and create a smile they envision. With porcelain veneers, New York City patients have been able to rejuvenate and idealize their smile in a way that has a positive impact on their self-confidence and oral health.

    Chips, misalignment, stains and spacing can all affect your smile over time. For those wanting to correct multiple smile imperfections and create a perfect look, porcelain veneers are the ideal solution. Porcelain veneers are capable of correcting multiple cosmetic issues by covering each tooth with a thin, protective shell. This covering is customized to provide New York City patients with a natural looking, lightweight and comfortable cosmetic solution. Veneers are designed to look just like a real tooth, while also providing patients with a comfortable, sturdy and functional smile. Since porcelain veneers are customized to allow for a perfect fit, there is no need to adjust your daily brushing, flossing and eating habits. They are a wonderful smile investment and are a great way to achieve the beautiful smile you have always wanted.

    The process of placing veneers at Dr. Andrew Levy's practice is fairly straightforward. Each veneer is custom fabricated and permanently bonded to your teeth. With proper care, veneers are designed to last a lifetime. Porcelain veneers have provided many New York City patients with long term health and beauty benefits. If you are interested in learning more about veneers and whether or not they are the right cosmetic dental service for your smile, visit Dr. Andrew Levy at his New York City practice.

    ( May 9, 2013 -- ReachOut Wireless just revamped their application process so that consumers who want to take advantage of the firm's affordable phones plans can access the program quickly and easily. ReachOut Wireless is one of the top five wireless firms that work with the United States government to get cell phones in the hands of low income individuals who can't afford a traditional cell phone plan. In order to make the process of getting a phone efficient, the company undertook a major effort to streamline their application process.

    The application process begins on the ReachOut Wireless website where the first step is to type in a zip code to determine if the program is available in a certain geographic area. If it is the applicant fills in the information and submits the application. Once approved, phones arrive in short order. The ReachOut Wireless program operates due to a partnership between the US government and Nexus communications so the application process does require a higher standard of documentation to determine eligibility but this is nothing extraordinary and most participants in the program have no trouble gathering the required documentation.

    The ReachOut plan is preferred by senior citizens who need a cell phone for emergency situations and who are on Medicaid or another federal or state aid program. Having already qualified for an assistance program guarantees acceptance into the ReachOut program and makes the application process that much easier. In addition to Medicaid, qualifying programs include SSI, federal public housing aid, SNAP, home energy assistance, and the federal free lunch program.

    For those who qualify the application process couldn't be simpler, and once approved new cell phone owners can expect up to 250 free minutes, nationwide long distance, voice mail, lifeline access and caller ID. The ReachOut Wireless plan and other valuable low income cell phone offers have been evaluated by Wireless Gov Phone and information can be found on their website.

    Bristow, VA ( May 9, 2013 --  The No.1 goal of both marine industry and boating safety professionals is to help today's boat buyers maximize their enjoyment when spending time on the water. Behind that goal is the simple understanding that proper education leads to a lifetime of fulfillment aboard a boat.

    Today, the National Safe Boating Council, in collaboration with the Marine Retailers Associations of the Americas and the Association of Marina Industries, has introduced its new Boat Pro Point of Sale training program. This online video series provides time-efficient training opportunities designed to educate marina personnel, recreational boat dealers, marine retailers and others who sell products and services to boaters on how to educate their customers on today's safety equipment requirements.

    "Boat Pro Point of Sale will help everyone involved in the boating industry promote boating safety through education before a recreational boater even gets on the water," said Virgil Chambers, executive director of the National Safe Boating Council, who manages the Boat Pro Point of Sale program. "Our partners have made this program an integrated tool to help marina and retail sales professionals guide recreational boaters to the safety equipment they'll need to have a fun and enjoyable time on the water."

    The Boat Pro Point of Sale program is designed to educate sales professionals on how they can assist recreational boaters when it comes to making the right decisions about buying safety equipment and the contents of a U.S. Coast Guard safety kit. The knowledge and insight provided by the Boat Pro Point of Sale trained professionals will not only create greater boating enjoyment for the consumer, but will also provide numerous up-sell opportunities for the sales professionals and their businesses.

    "Talking about safety is rarely an easy and enjoyable part of the sales process," says Matt Gruhn, president of the Marine Retailers Association of the Americas. "But if we're going to truly help today's boaters get the most out of boat ownership, it's a necessary part.

    Grant to Support Music Instruction

    LOS ANGELES ( May 9, 2013 -- The Neighborhood Music School (NMS) in Boyle Heights announced today that it has been awarded a $20,000 grant from the Weingart Foundation for "capital support for upgrades to agency building."

    "We are very pleased the Weingart Foundation was able to award us this grant," said Wendy Kikkert, NMS' Administrator. "We have been providing affordable music instruction to the families of Boyle Heights for nearly a century. The charming Victorian home in which we own and operate is in need of upgrades and repairs. These improvements will ensure the building will be in prime condition, both to celebrate our 100-year anniversary in 2014, and to serve the community well into our next century."

    "Music lessons and cultural literacy are great opportunities we provide, especially in an underserved area like Boyle Heights.  We are thankful the Weingart Foundation was able to provide these badly needed funds to the Neighborhood Music School so we can continue to teach in a facility that is both safe and in top form," says Jeffrey De Francisco, President of the Board of the Neighborhood Music School.

    About the Neighborhood Music School

    Established in 1914, the Neighborhood Music School will soon celebrate its 100th Anniversary enriching the talent, intellect and lives of its students. The Neighborhood Music School is located in a charming Victorian house it owns in Boyle Heights, just ten minutes east of the Walt Disney Concert Hall

We're creating musicians and good citizens for Los Angeles through our lessons and music education programs," says Mr. De Francisco.

    Qualification expands certification testing portfolio for Wi-Fi® technology

    Málaga, Spain ( May 9, 2013 -- AT4 wireless is proud to announce that it has been authorized by Wi-Fi Alliance® to perform certification testing for Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Voice Personal, Wi-Fi CERTIFIED Tunneled Direct Link Setup (TDLS) and WPA2 Protected Management Frames (PMF) programs.

    Wi-Fi Alliance developed the Voice-Personal certification program to verify that access points, often referred to as wireless routers, and client devices like handsets and laptops deliver good voice quality over a Wi-Fi network. The program extends beyond interoperability testing to test the performance of specific products. Products that achieve Voice-Personal certification have met strict performance levels and are capable of providing consistent, good-quality voice calls.

    The TDLS certification program was initiated because of growing market demand for Wi-Fi networks to support devices that employ voice, video, and multimedia applications. TDLS certified devices automatically create a direct link between them, helping to optimize the home network and provide an improved user experience with respect to speed of connection and overall bandwidth efficiency.

    Wi-Fi CERTIFIED WPA2 with Protected Management Frames provides a WPA2-level of protection for unicast and multicast management action frames. Unicast management actions frames are protected from both eavesdropping and forging, and multicast management action frames are protected from forging. WPA2 with Protected Management Frames augments WPA2 privacy protections already in place for data frames with mechanisms to improve the resiliency of mission-critical networks.

    "We are proud to increase our scope of testing services by being named a Wi-Fi Alliance Authorized Test Laboratory, said Noemí Pérez, Wireless Laboratory Manager of AT4 wireless. "This achievement expands AT4 wireless' existing certification testing portfolio for Wi-Fi® technology and enables us to offer a one-stop certification center for Wi-Fi manufacturers."

    Wi-Fi manufacturers that would like to implement these features in their products can request to perform Wi-Fi CERTIFIED testing at AT4 wireless' facility in Spain.
