Celebrities Using 20% Collagen Gel Eye Pads Are Unaware of Stronger 100% Collagen Fibre Eye Pads Available in Health Food Stores

Garnering lots of attention and publicity are single-use Collagen Gel Eye Pads used by celebrities like Paris Hilton, Jenny McCarthy, and Heidi Klum. The collagen pads moisturize, freshen and relieve the tired look under eyes and in 20 minutes lessen the look of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles.

Philadelphia, PA, USA (December 23, 2013) — Garnering lots of attention and publicity are single-use Collagen Gel Eye Pads used by celebrities like Paris Hilton, Jenny McCarthy, and Heidi Klum. The collagen pads moisturize, freshen and relieve the tired look under eyes and in 20 minutes lessen the look of fine lines, puffiness and dark circles.

Users praise their benefits before or after “a night out.”

But a small all-natural skin-care company called Reviva Labs sells freeze-dried Collagen Fibre Eye Pads in Health Food Stores that not only offer similar attributes but can provide stronger, deeper anti-wrinkle action.

Research indicates that Collagen’s potency to fight wrinkles and add skin moisture is based on its amino acid content.

The collagen ingredient in Gel Eye Pads is a liquid collagen with generally a 20% collagen -amino – acid content.

In comparison, the freeze-dried Collagen Fibre has almost 100% collagen – amino – acid content.

Reviva Labs full strength Collagen Fibre Eye Pads, contour-cut to fit under eyes, comes in a three- pair package or as a Kit with four pairs of pads along with a two-ounce trace mineral gel.

Gel is used under the dry pads. It preps skin to aid even deeper absorption.

Reviva Labs, now in its 40th year, is noted as a key pioneer of skin care education, and innovator of skin care products used internationally. Reviva’s 3-pair Eye Pad Package and 4-pair Kit w/2-oz. “prep” gel are found in Health Food stores nationally, some cosmetic stores and skin salons.

More information is available at Reviva’s website: http://www.RevivaLabs.com.

USC honors Southern California Telephone & Energy Chief Executive Officer, Greg Michaels

Laguna Beach, CA., December 23, 2013 – As the annual NCAA bowl games approach, esteemed University of Southern California (USC) celebrates an historic 125 years of athletic tradition.  USC is known for its great Trojan football program and unparalleled athletic success in the sports of baseball, tennis, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, golf, rowing and volleyball which has resulted in 120 national team championships, an unprecedented 419 Olympians, and 52 NCAA Postgraduate Scholars.  Greg Michaels, CEO of Southern California Telephone & Energy, was honored among his peers and fellow athletes at the Los Angeles Collesium (USC’s home stadium) in Los Angeles.  Former USC Men’s Varsity Tennis athletes were reunited and recognized on the field at half time of the USC vs. UCLA football game.

In 1986, Michaels’ first year on the USC Men’s Tennis Team, the Pac10 Champions played for the National Championship against Georgia with a record of 32-0 going into the finals.  It wouldn’t be until age 46 that Michaels would win his first National Championship at the 2013 World Team Tennis (WTT) National Championships in the open division.  The finals for the competition were held during the weekend of November 2 – 3, 2013 at the second largest tennis stadium in the world; Indian Wells Tennis Garden near Palm Springs, California.  The owner of the Tennis Garden, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, hosts the ATP Tennis Tournament BNP Paribas Open at the facilities and plans to grow the Tennis Garden into the largest stadium in the world.  Michaels and his “Dreamkillers” teammates – most of whom are half his age – took the court with a vengeance sweeping all matches without loosing a single set. The team included two current ATP touring professionals, former professionals like Michaels, and former collegiate All American tennis players.

Greg Michaels is the founder and chairman of Southern California Telephone & Energy (SCT&E), a spinoff of a company that he formed shortly after he left his professional tennis career in 1994.  SCT&E is a utility in the Unites States and is currently developing power generation projects around the world.  When asked about the correlation between his business and tennis success, Michaels stated, “Business is much like all high level sports. You have to have the same discipline, dedication and mental toughness to be successful.”

 

About Southern California Telephone & Energy (SCT&E):

Southern California Telephone Company, dba Southern California Telephone & Energy, is a spin-off of Wholesale Airtime, Inc. established in 1994 by Founder and CEO, Greg Michaels.  In simple terms, SCT&E is a vertically integrated Telephone and Energy Company, offering discounted Legacy Voice, Data, Wi-Fi, VOIP, SIP, Cable Telephone, and Telephone Services. The company also provides renewable energy and energy efficiency solutions, thus blending the world of utility mediums. Additionally, SCT&E is involved in international energy generation and oil and gas projects.

Subsequent to the 1996 deregulation of the telecom industry in the United States, SCT&E took advantage of the opportunity to become a privately held, facility-based Competitive Local Exchange Carrier (CLEC) and utility under the CPUC.  In addition to its CLEC status, SCT&E is also a Certified Long Distance Carrier (IXC), and a Wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP). SCT&E has one of the largest privately-held, fixed wireless, or Wi-Max, networks in California. The company has multiple locations, with its corporate office located in Temecula, California. SCT&E owns and operates a redundant telecommunications network with switches and facilities on both coasts of the United States.

SCT&E is a California Electric Service Provider (ESP) and has Federal Energy Regulatory (FERC) Authority allowing the company to buy and sell energy nationwide in both the wholesale and retail markets in the USA.  Its Energy Division affords consumers the ability to invest in renewable energy systems to include PV Solar and its US non-provisional patent Virtual Power Plant® and US provisional patent-pending Battery Energy Reservoir™.

As NYC’s Big Soda Ban Awaits de Blasio, Science Firmly on the Side of Smaller Portions

“Chirlane and I spend a lot of time working to make sure Dante and Chiara are healthy. That means encouraging nutrition … Unfortunately as parents, it feels like every day we’re fighting an enemy, and that is the growing availability of bigger and bigger sugary drinks.” Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio, discussing soda portion limits in October
This month’s edition of Evidence-Based Diabetes Management, a news source of The American Journal of Managed Care, examines the science behind Mayor Michael Bloomberg pursuit of soda portion limits, as well as alternatives for curtailing consumption to fight obesity. Soon after Mayor-elect de Blasio takes office, he must decide how to achieve Bloomberg’s goal, including whether to continue litigation before the New York State Court of Appeals.

PLAINSBORO, N.J. – New York City Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio is getting attention this week for his Cabinet picks and his vow to address income inequality. But since the election, he has been quiet about one leftover on his plate: What to do about proposed portion limits on soda.

This month’s edition of Evidence-Based Diabetes Management, a news source of The American Journal of Managed Care, examines the science behind Mayor Michael Bloomberg pursuit of soda portion limits, as well as alternatives for curtailing consumption to fight obesity. Soon after Mayor-elect de Blasio takes office, he must decide how to achieve Bloomberg’s goal, including whether to continue litigation before the New York State Court of Appeals.

In October, de Blasio said he supported soda drink limits, though his team might revisit Bloomberg’s path to enact them. His transition team declined multiple opportunities to comment for the story. For a copy, click here.

While Bloomberg’s ban divided opinion – and inspired plenty of late night jokes – the scientific community isn’t laughing about the need to limit soda intake. Evidence-Based Diabetes Management interviewed Kimber Stanhope, PhD, RD, and a researcher from the University of California at Davis who testified before the Mexican Congress on its new soda tax. In fact, Mayor-elect de Blasio will take office the same day Mexicans start paying a soda tax of 1 peso per liter (about 8 cents). Also interviewed is Y. Claire Wang, MD, of Columbia University, whose 2010 study found that a similar tax in New York State could have avoided 37,400 cases of diabetes over a decade and saved New Yorkers $1.2 billion in healthcare costs.

 Capping soda sizes is a notable area of agreement between de Blasio and Bloomberg, whose plan to ban servings larger than 16 ounces hit roadblocks in court on the eve of its implementation in March. In October, New York’s Court of Appeals agreed to hear the Bloomberg administration’s appeal of the lower court ruling, which critiqued the rule on procedural grounds but did not challenge the science behind it.

Stanhope’s work has found that healthy, young adults who consume three servings a day of drinks sweetened with high-fructose corn syrup had significant spikes in LDL (low-density protein), the so-called “bad” cholesterol. “Somebody should be looking at that and blinking,” she told EBDM.

High-fructose corn syrup is the cheap alternative to sugar used by many soda manufacturers, although until now, Coca-Cola has retained pure cane sugar in its Mexican version, known as “Mexicoke.” However, Coca-Cola has discussed switching to high-fructose corn syrup to cut the cost of the drink in response to the new tax.

While the transition team did not respond to requests for comment, candidate de Blasio voiced support for Bloomberg’s philosophy on this issue. In October, he said, “Chirlane and I spend a lot of time working to make sure Dante and Chiara are healthy. That means encouraging nutrition … Unfortunately as parents, it feels like every day we’re fighting an enemy, and that is the growing availability of bigger and bigger sugary drinks.”

The High School Spanish App is Giving Away In-App Purchases for the Holidays

Common Ground International announced a Holiday Special for the latest version of their High School Spanish – 5 Essential Tools to Study Spanish & Learn Vocabulary app. Available for $4.99 on the App Store, the Quizlet Flashcard integration, normally an in-app purchase, is available for free for a limited time. This special holiday offer is available from December 20, 2013 to January 01, 2014.

This all-in-one Spanish study app, developed by Spanish teachers, gives students everything they need to get better grades, and even prepare for a trip abroad. The app is useful for students at all levels: Spanish 1 through Spanish 4, including AP Spanish, IB Spanish, and even college courses. The app includes tools for mastering Spanish vocabulary and grammar, as well as Spanish reading and listening comprehension. “Our High School Spanish app is a great study aid,” said Rory Foster, owner of Common Ground International. “Students use it to prepare for Spanish tests, improve their grades, and increase their proficiency in the language. We developed this app alongside a team of seasoned instructors with real-world experience in language acquisition, so our users can speak Spanish with confidence.”

The app includes five main sections, starting with a comprehensive Spanish dictionary and thesaurus with over 33,000 entries. The interactive dictionary allows for a bilingual word search, includes a “translate” function if the word isn’t already in the dictionary, and allows for users to hear Spanish words pronounced. Words can also be added from the Spanish dictionary to the Spanish flashcards for easy study later on.

“The Flashcards feature also makes for a great study aid,” added Foster. “We’ve selected the most important Spanish vocabulary words in a pre-made set of Flashcards, which are organized by theme and category. Of course, additional words can be added directly to the Flashcard section for customized study.” Integrated within the Flashcards section of the app is the Quizlet flashcard feature, which is normally available as an in-app purchase, but now being offered for free for a limited time. Quizlet.com is an enormous bank of online flashcards that High School Spanish App users can now access and import directly into their mobile device.

The app also includes a Spanish Grammar module with study tools including mnemonics and songs. Even difficult topics like Ser vs Estar, Por vs Para, Preterit vs Imperfect, and Subjunctive vs Indicative are covered, along with verb conjugations in all tenses.

High School Spanish even makes it easy for students to write papers in Spanish. The Quick Tips and formatting reference provide students with a handy guide, along with special lists of transition and composition words that make writing Spanish papers a breeze.

The Reading/Listening comprehension section, modeled after AP Spanish comprehension tests, is also a great way to study and prep for exams. Users select authentic and culturally relevant texts for reading comprehension practice. After reading the selection, they respond to multiple choice questions and get their scores immediately. The listening comprehension practice section works similarly; users listen to pre-recorded selections about various topics and respond to related oral questions, and get their scores immediately. If users make a mistake, they’re given the option to see or listen to a hint from the original selection in order to help them correct their mistake.

Watch Game Of Thrones Online Legitimately

Watchgameofthronesonlines.com is now providing online streaming of the latest Game of Thrones episodes.

Watchgameofthronesonlines.com is now providing its members with the online streaming of the latest Game of Thrones episodes. Members can now watch Game of Thrones online without any hassles and that too at their comfort and most important legally.

Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. It is an adaptation of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin’s series of fantasy novels, the first of which is titled A Game of Throne. It premiered on HBO in the United States on April 17, 2011. The series has been renewed for a fourth season, to air in 2014.

‘Game of Thrones’, the winner of one Golden Globe award and rated among the top TV Series on IMDB. The series, set on the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos at the end of a decade-long summer, interweaves several plot lines. The first follows the members of several noble houses in a civil war for the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms; the second covers the rising threat of the impending winter and the mythical creatures of the North; the third chronicles the attempts of the exiled last scion of the realm’s deposed dynasty to reclaim the throne. Through its morally ambiguous characters, the series explores the issues of social hierarchy, religion, loyalty, corruption, sexuality, civil war, crime, and punishment. It is the most recent big-budget work to have contributed to the popularity of the fantasy genre in mainstream media.

Season 4 of Game of Thrones was formally commissioned by HBO on 2 April 2013, following a substantial increase in audience figures between the second and third seasons. However, substantial pre-production work on the season had already taken place previously to this point, including the writing of at least six of the scripts, and the booking of some of the filming dates. The season will premiere in the first half of 2014.

Latest Garcinia Cambogia Extract Claims Now Investigated

New Media Report Finds Significant Claims Tested. The Results Are Now In. Pure Garcinia Cambogia Extract Side Effects, Safety and Quality Concerns, Published by Researched Reviews.

The latest report regarding Garcinia Cambogia Extract side effects, safety and the true quality of supplements are now made available. In this Special News Report, research specialist Cindy Walters promptly provides a powerful resource and reference point. (Link shown below):

The Top 5 News Documented Garcinia Cambogia Extract Supplements
Pure Garcinia Cambogia has demonstrated to be a very popular supplement for weight loss, but the real truth is, not all supplements are created equal. In fact most of the supplements sold do not meet the standards to produce the outstanding weight loss effects consumers are looking for. In the Investigated Reviews News Documented Report, each of these specific product brands have been third party tested and proven to be extremely effective. Utilizing Miss Walters reference and resource page is one of the most valuable tools for consumers available online today. A key point she makes is that the resource page is updated regularly (every couple of days to be exact) to ensure consumers receive the best and most current findings as they do change.

Cindy Walters states, “Consumers deserve to know the truth. With so many Garcinia Cambogia Extract products on the market and with their slick advertising, it is no wonder why so many individuals don’t know where to turn. It is at the point of dizzying now. We did very extensive research and made this valuable information available online for everyone. As far as the clever marketing and advertising, manufactures and their sales affiliates have turned to what’s referred to as the “Scare Tactic Technique.” The problem here is that I am finding way too much inaccurate information in an attempt to scare buyers into buying a specific product brand. For example, I am seeing websites claiming that calcium is detrimental to the absorption of the extract. In fact, these marketers are telling buyers if they buy any product with Calcium included in the formula, that it will yield the results absolutely ineffective. This is farthest from the truth. Ingredients like potassium, calcium and chromium are only included because they actually HELP with absorption, as observed in several documented clinical studies.”

A Christmas Idea for the Die-Hard Baseball Fan

Disguised as a good book on baseball, “October 1964” is an in depth look at a bygone era.

If you are having a hard time finding the perfect gift for that die hard baseball fan you may want to consider “October 1964.” Published in 1994, the book is far from a new release but is destined to be a classic. Written by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist for the New York Times, David Halberstam; “October 1964” looks through the eyes of the New York Yankees and St. Louis Cardinals at the racial, cultural, social and political upheaval of the early 1960s.

In the 1964 World Series, the Yankees and Cardinals faced off for a seven game series that brought the end to a Yankees’ dynasty that gripped baseball since the 1940s. Sounding the death toll for the New York Yankees, the St. Louis Cardinals won the series in seven games.

However, baseball is the setting for the book not its main theme. Halberstam does keep the avid baseball fan interested by taking the reader through all the highlights of the 1964 pennant race, ending in the World Series; but it is much deeper than a book on baseball.

Halberstam digs deeply into the characters that were the most prominent players in this postseason drama including August “Gussie” Busch Jr, Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Johnny Keane Bob Gibson, Ken Boyer, Tony Kubek, Bill White and Elston Howard. There were no black players on the roster of the St. Louis Cardinals when St. Louis based Anheuser-Busch purchased the team in 1953.

Integration was in its first stages of the game in 1964. Busch, having progressive attitudes toward race in the 1950s, ordered team management to integrate the team. This was mostly a business decision, since Busch was aware that Budweiser was popular among African-Americans.

By 1964, the St. Louis Cardinals’ organization was well known for its progressive racial policies. Of course, this did not sit well with all of management or motel policies of the time. During spring training, Bill White complained that black and white players could not stay in the same hotels. Busch remedied the situation by purchasing his own hotel.

The times were changing and Halberstam weaves all the tales of the era with insights from the greatest players of the time. While thinking they were reading about baseball, young fans will also gain valuable historical insights from the book. However, “October 1964” makes a perfect stocking stuffer for baseball fans of any age.
