People have questions about Scientology and the Center exists to answer those questions.”

Close to 100 lbs of cookies, cheese and fruit and refreshments were served throughout the evening to the continual stream of visitors as well as hot coffee to help keep the chill at bay.

It is a family-friendly event with complimentary kids’ activities, games, prizes and more.

Several guests made comments that summed up the evening’s experience. One man, Matt, said, “It’s amazing what you provide for the community. You do this for every Blast Friday? I’ll be back next month!” Another woman said, “Thanks for taking the time to answer all my questions!”

Valley Endocrine and Research (N/A:N/A)

Always start by making small changes so that you don’t feel overwhelmed. You will immediate feel the change in your body, and including improvements in your regular routine will become quite easy.”

— Dr. Paul Norwood, Valley Endocrine clinic, diabetes and metabolism

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Medical doctor and researcher Paul Norwood, MD has published an informational article on simple steps for maintaining your health. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Norwood at https://PaulNorwoodMD.blogspot.com/

Did you know that “September is Healthy Aging® Month?” The term was coined in by the company’s executive director and the magazine’s editor-in-chief Carolyn Worthington. The event is now in its 2nd decade, and it is still going strong. The reason why Carolyn created this event was to tell the people above the age of 45 that there’s still time for them to change their habits and take control of their health.

Aging has been long given a negative connotation. Fear of the unknown forces people to lead sedentary lives that lead to a number of health problems. A few common aging fears are:

• Isolation or loneliness
• Loss of independence
• Getting care from strangers
• Declining health
• Running out of financial aid
• Not being able to do certain tasks on their own such as drive or run errands like shopping for grocery
• Death of a family member
• Fear of hurting themselves or falling
• Living alone
• Inability to manage daily living activities

Think of healthy aging as a process that involves your body, mind, and soul. Following are five tips of healthy aging that you should follow.

1. Be Active

Many people shy away from exercise and that’s alright. Sometimes, even a walk in the park seems like a difficult chore. When we say “be active,” what we actually mean is to pursue any of your favorite physical activity such as gardening, swimming, rock climbing, or yoga. As long as you are moving and remaining physically active, it will be counted as exercise.

2. Eat Well

Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, decrease sodium intake, limit the intake of alcoholic drinks, consume small serving sizes, and eliminate processed foods from your diet. The more colorful your plate, the more energized you will feel throughout the day.

3. Practice Prevention

Are you prone to tripping and falling? Aging brings about many problems such as frequent falls, failing eyesight, and forgetfulness. Along with regular medical checkups, make some changes in your house. Clear the rooms of excessive furniture and install handle bars to prevent falls.

4. Get Enough Sleep

Get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep. Sleep deficiency may lead to problems in memory, immune system, and concentration. It can also cause Alzheimer’s disease according to the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation.

5. Reduce Stress

Identify your stress triggers and find ways to reduce them. Seek therapy if you cannot handle the pressure on your own. A few tricks that can help you reduce your stress levels include journaling, listening to music, and doing a favorite activity.

Always start by making small changes so that you don’t feel overwhelmed. You will immediate feel the change in your body, and including these tips in your regular routine will become quite easy.

Andre Paradis of Project Equinox to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WOODLAND HILLS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — How do you find the one? How can you build a relationship for 20, 30, 50 years? How does it work? What is the secret to find and sustain a healthy, longterm relationship?.

Dating and relationships between men and women can be very confusing. We're all walking around wearing masks hoping to show up in a way we think the opposite sex will find attractive.

Andre Paradis is an expert on dating, sex and relationship dynamics and the founder of Project Equinox, where he works with singles and couples to create and maintain healthy, longterm, successful relationships.

“In coaching, there's active movement and awareness of how you show up in the world and how you to recalibrate your energy system to change your habits and become the person that attracts who you want,” says Andre.

Andre launched Project Equinox with knowledge and tools developed through his affiliation with the Mankind Project and therapist Dr. Pat Allen.

“We've done a lot research on people in long-term relationships and we have learned exactly how they do it,” says Andre. “It’s about gender intelligence. It’s something that we don't teach in our culture, but it is the most important tool men and women can gain for a happy and healthy relationship. “My goal is to teach and empower people and society and to change our culture when it comes to human dynamics and relationships.”

According to Paradis, the way we currently raise men and women in our culture makes the possibility for sustainable relationships nearly impossible.

“What's happening in our culture now is keeping people from getting into long-term relationships,” says Paradis. “What motivates a man doesn't motivate a woman. Without that understanding, it's not possible to communicate appropriately.”

Andre says we’re masculinizing women to the point where they have very little to access to their femininity, which is part of what attracts men; and we have feminized men to the point where they have difficulty moving past adolescence, which keeps men from asserting their ability to take care of women, which is what women instinctively want.

“Let's say you see a cute girl walking down Fifth Avenue. You have to have the courage to say hello and get her phone number and go on a date. It’s on you. Old school is what women find the sexiest and it works best. You make the plan. You make the date. You pick her up. Your body wants that and her body wants that,” says Andre. “This is what I teach. The cocktail of the information I have all fits together. It’s chemical, it’s behavioral, and it’s anthropological. It’s about understanding that the person across from you is a different beast from you.”

Through coaching and speaking engagements, Andre helps his clients go deep into the “dance of the relationship.”

“In every relationship, after three months you can't help but be who you really are. The next three months is when people get real. The next three months is how you get to negotiate what works and what doesn't work. Then the next three months is when we commit and figure out if we're willing to go all the way. And when you care for the person, both sides are willing to do this. Sex is sometimes a way to avoid emotional intimacy because it gives you the illusion that you are more compatible than you are. Real intimacy is getting to know each other first.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Andre Paradis in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on February 4th at 12pm EST and with Jim Masters on February 11th at 12pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

eLearning Inside Announces EdTechnically, a New Podcast & Video Series That Asks Questions About Edtech and Answers Them

Elearning Inside announces EdTechnically, an edtech podcast and video series.

eLearning Inside's EdTechnically podcast and YouTube series launches on February 18th, tackling tech questions for the education and tech sector.

At eLearning Inside, we continue to push to deliver insightful and impactful content to our audience. Your commute just got a little smarter!”

— Don Weobong, Founder and CEO of eLearning Inside

LOUISVILLE, KY, USA, January 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The world of edtech is both exciting and confusing. New technology promises to educate more learners and deliver stronger results than ever before. But other products fizzle in the market, prove ineffective, or fail to scale. That’s why eLearning Inside is proud to present EdTechnically, a new podcast and YouTube series that asks questions about edtech and tries to answer them. The series will launch on February 18th.

American and international venture capital continues to set records with total edtech investment. VC funds around the world poured over $1 billion into edtech startups in July 2018 alone. American rounds exceeded $1.45 billion, matching the previous high water mark set in 2015. And despite these massive investments, 2018 still didn’t exceed the international record set in 2017 when $9.5 billion entered the sector. There’s reason to believe 2019, however, will push the bar higher still.

Despite these billions of dollars flooding the edtech market, many companies and countries have little to show for it. Countless beneficiaries of VC capital go under a few years later. As Educated Ventures Founder Christopher Nyren told eLearning Inside, “My fear is that, as in 2002, Silicon Valley hot money will abandon the education sector, leaving a lot of schools in the lurch. Ultimately, the peculiarities of education require founders to bootstrap as long as humanly possible.”

At the same time, technological developments that promise to improve education often remains trapped in the silos of academia or startups that burn through their runway before anyone can actually use their product. What does get out often arrives at the hands of huge marketing budgets and a lack of sufficient testing.

As David Niemi, an expert in learning analytics and VP of measurement and evaluation at Kaplan, told eLearning Inside, “I think there’s actually good reason for people to be wary of technology because if you go online or if you get contacted by companies that have come up with some new solution, my overwhelming experience in investigating what they’ve got is that it’s almost all hype. People make huge claims for what their systems can do without any evidence behind them. They haven’t done any studies or tested the effectiveness of what they’ve got.”

Since launching in 2017, eLearning Inside has sought to map this wilderness. Reporting on the site has investigated artificial intelligence (AI) in the classroom, MOOCs, virtual charter schools, and everything in between.

But many would prefer to digest this information in various media. With EdTechnically, eLearning Inside seeks to tackle some of the biggest and most contentious issues in the edtech sector with engaging podcasts and videos.

“At eLearning Inside, we continue to push to deliver insightful and impactful content to our audience,” said Don Weobong, Founder and CEO of eLearning Inside. “Your commute just got a little smarter!”

Following launch, EdTechnically will provide an expansion to eLearning Inside’s existing PR and advertising services. Edtech startups and organizations routinely approach the site to gain exposure through their reporting, place advertorials, and spread their message. EdTechnically will provide a further avenue to reach an even wider audience.

Episodes in the series will seek to answer questions such as “Does edtech actually save teachers time?”; “Does mobile learning lead to device addiction?”; “Which will dominate online tutoring: AI or the gig economy?”; and “Can you measure engagement by watching a learner’s face?”

Many of these episodes draw their information from existing or future eLearning Inside reporting.

If you’re a teacher, administrator, manager, developer, student, or parent, EdTechnically will have something for you. Tune in February 18.

Business Leader of the Year, Joe Reilly, To Speak at CEO Lunch & Learn

Joe Reilly, National Drug Screening President and Business Leader of the Year Award Winner to Speak at the Space Coast Business CEO Lunch & Learn Feb. 15, 2019.

Florida employers have decisions to make. I encourage business leaders to take the time to learn about medical marijuana in the workplace and to develop and implement clear and concise policies.”

— Joe Reilly, President National Drug Screening

MELBOURNE, FL, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Business leaders who have established “Drug-Free Workplaces” are now faced with the dilemma that, what was once illegal, may now be authorized for those with a medical marijuana card. Florida Statute 381.986 is vague about what a Florida-based employer should do about accommodating a medical marijuana card holder in the workplace. In Florida, unlike some other states, there is no clear statutory language giving employees protections with regard to employment.

The employer is given authority to continue to enforce a drug-free workplace program but in some states accommodation may be required for medical marijuana card holders. So far, there is no accommodation required for using or smoking marijuana at the workplace.

This is becoming an issue of increasing concern to employers and to CEO's, and HR managers. To help employers better understand their options, Space Coast Business has invited 2 experts in the industry, Joe Reilly and Tara Tedrow to conduct a CEO Lunch & Learn Event.

Mr. Joe Reilly has provided consulting, speaking engagements and training programs for many organizations including the US Small Business Administration (SBA), the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), the US Department of Education, the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the Washington DC Department of Public Works, the Florida Office of Drug Control, the Florida Department of Corrections, the Drug & Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA), the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS), the Florida Trucking Association, Florida Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) and numerous Chambers of Commerce and business associations. Mr Reilly also served 2004 to 2008 as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Drug & Alcohol Testing Industry Association (DATIA) – the national trade organization for the drug testing industry.

Attorney Tara Tedrow is Senior Associate at Lowndes, Drosdick, Doster, Kantor, Reed, P.A. & Co-Chair, Cannabis and Controlled Substances Group. Tara works with physicians, lenders, real estate developers, landlords, ancillary service providers, licensed Medical Marijuana Treatment Centers and license applicants, helping them to navigate the ever changing regulatory landscape of medical marijuana. Tara is a regular presenter and speaker at industry seminars and conferences. In the fall of 2018, Tara will be the first professor in the state of Florida to teach a law school course on medical marijuana law and policy at the University of Florida Levin College of Law.

Learn what you need to know to insure your policies and procedures align with this new reality, while at the same time maintaining a safe and secure work environment. For more information on this event, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/302331260628483/

Claudette Roche Explains How Technology is Changing Accents Around the World

Technology has allowed individuals to connect more frequently and efficiently than any other time in history.

People want to be understood. They want to be able to use this cutting-edge technology. And most people don’t want to be left behind.”

— Claudette Roche

VERO BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, January 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Technology has allowed individuals to connect more frequently and efficiently than any other time in history. Yet with the mainstream introduction of voice-activated technology, some accents go unrecognized or misunderstood. Google Home, Amazon’s Alexa, and Siri immediately recognize demands when delivered by an individual with an American accent. However, individuals with non-American accents struggle to use this newer technology.

Claudette Roche, the Accent Coach explains, “It’s possible that individuals may change how they pronounce certain words or how they sound to get that technology to work for them.” And in some ways, they already are. A recent study showed that 79% of individuals with regional accents reported changing their accent “a little bit” or “a lot” in order to be understood by voice-activated technology.

“If voice-activated technology continues this way, we can definitely see some major changes happening to regional accents,” the Accent Coach says. And it’s not exactly surprising. Most of this technology is coming from the United States. Thus, it makes sense that the voice-activated software is fitted to the American accent. The individuals involved in this technology’s construction likely have similar accents and dialects – which don’t include outlying regional accents.

“People want to be understood. They want to be able to use this cutting-edge technology. And most people don’t want to be left behind,” Roche explains. Roche predicts that more and more individuals may turn to speech coaches for help. “It could potentially and substantially increase the need for accent or speech coaching,” she says.

Regional accents around the world may see a change in the coming decades. Voice-activated systems are becoming more and more common, with uses at home and in the workplace. The other possibility involves a more inclusive approach to voice-activated technology when it comes to different accents. As the Accent Coach states, “Only time will tell.”

SDWR Diabetic Alert Dog Delivered to 34-year-old Type 1 Diabetic in Alberta, Canada

Diabetic Alert Dog from SDWR

Sonny, Diabetic Alert Dog from SDWR

Adam, a 34-year-old man in Grande Praire, Alberta, Canada, received a very special delivery today of his very own Diabetic Alert Service Dog from SDWR.

I live alone. The dog would provide additional, needed support and increase my ability to manage my diabetes.”

— Adam, Diabetic Alert Dog recipient

GRANDE PRAIRE, ALBERTA, CANADA, January 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Adam, a 34-year-old man in Grande Praire, Alberta, Canada, received a very special delivery today of his very own Diabetic Alert Service Dog from Service Dogs by SDWR. Based in Madison, Virginia, Service Dogs by SDWR, or “SDWR,” has a mission to provide specially-bred and trained dogs for people of all ages that struggle with living with invisible disabilities such as Autism, PTSD, Seizure Disorders, or in the case of Adam—Type 1 Diabetes. SDWR has hundreds of working service dogs placed around the globe and is currently serving approximately 1,000 families.
Sonny, a labrador retriever Diabetic Alert Dog, has already received countless hours of training through SDWR’s service dog raiser program where volunteers raise puppies in training for approximately one year. The dogs and raisers must follow through the foundation and skill set training provided through SDWR trainers at the facility in Virginia.
Sonny is also an honored graduate of the SDWR Fallen Officer Puppy Program. The Fallen Officer Puppy Program, also known as “FOPP,” is an initiative by SDWR to pay respect to the legacy of service by fallen American police who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. Sonny is named in honor of fallen hero Auxiliary Deputy Sonny Allan Smith of the Johnson County Sheriff's Office in Arkansas who was shot and killed as he and other deputies searched for a burglary suspect. Sonny’s work as a Diabetic Alert Service Dog with Adam will carry on in memoriam of Deputy Smith’s life of service before self.
Adam was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes when he was 4-years-old. Adam hopes that a service dog will be able to alert him when he is sleeping and in between checks. “I live alone. The dog would provide additional, needed support and increase my ability to manage my diabetes,” says Adam, Diabetic Alert Dog recipient. Adam is optimistic that with the addition of a service dog it will help make his life a little easier and provide a sense of independence and security.
SDWR uses a proprietary scent training method to teach Diabetic Alert Dogs to detect fluctuations in blood sugar that fall outside of a handler’s healthy range. Since Sonny is a service dog and covered under laws in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, he will be able to accompany Adam everywhere—from work, to church, even to dojo practice.
During the upcoming 18 months, SDWR will return to Adam’s home every 3-4 months to continue working on Sonny’s customized training, follow up training and training the human to make a successful team and public access certification. This certification can only be given to Adam after a progression of hard work and dedication to the SDWR training program. This training program is what sets SDWR apart from other nonprofit service dog organizations.
Service Dogs by SDWR is a nonprofit organization based in Madison, Virginia, and relies on donations to help the organization in its mission, “Until there’s a cure…there’s a dog.” To make a donation or learn more about SDWR, please visit the website, www.sdwr.org.

Axiom Tool Group, Inc. is a manufacturer and world-wide distributor of small-format CNC routers. CNC routers take instructions from a computer to shape or carve wood, plastics, and aluminum. Since 2014, the Axiom Tool Group has been building truly unique CNC routers which are marketed under the Axiom Precision brand. These innovative machines integrate technology and components from the industrial market into machines which fit the budget and size constraints of the small shop. “All of our Axiom Precision CNC machines have been thoughtfully designed and rigorously tested so that our customers enjoy unparalleled accuracy, repeatability and speed,” said Damon. “All Axiom CNC machines are engineered from the ground up like larger machines, yet will fit comfortably in any shop.”

Axiom offers CNC solutions in a wide range of sizes for both hobbyist and industrial applications, and is an industry leader in machine innovation, product quality and customer service. The Axiom Tool Group is headquartered in Westerville, Ohio.
