"MORE TREES, PLEASE!" Earth Day Movement inspires others to "Plant a Tree Pose" for more trees around the world

A unique Earth Day Movement is underway to increase awareness about deforestation and to raise money for planting trees worldwide.

Monterey, CA, March 23, 2015 - A unique Earth Day Movement is underway to increase awareness about deforestation and to raise money for planting trees worldwide. Participants register for the Movement at http://www.PlantATreePose.com where they donate $1 to one of three internationally respected tree-planting nonprofits of their choice and upload a picture of themselves doing a Tree Pose (yoga pose). Their picture will be used to create a giant Photomosaic® of a towering tree by world-renowned artist, Robert Silvers, and this Photomosaic® will be revealed as a special art exhibit on Earth Day, April 22, 2015.

Fitness expert, Annette Cain created the Plant a Tree Pose Movement out of her passion for inspiring others to care for their bodies and the earth. Her love of nature and background as an endurance athlete and lifestyle coach is the perfect mix for her mission to lead physical movements for a better world. Annette says she is following Gandhi's advice to “be the change” she wants to see in the world and for this movement it is, "More trees, please!"

In order to accomplish this change, Annette has partnered with three internationally known tree-planting nonprofits--Trees for the Future, Project GreenHands, and the Earth Day Network's Canopy Project. These nonprofits have made great strides not just in planting trees where they are needed most, but also by teaching and training the local people in developing countries to keep their land and forests sustainable.

According to Conservation International, "Every year, 15 million hectares of forest are cut, slashed and burned. That's more than 75,000 football fields every single day." In fact, the world's rain forests could completely vanish in 100 years at the current rate of deforestation (source: National Geographic). Annette believes it's not too late to turn this devastation around, but we need to act now!

New Survey of Retired Women Prioritizes significant Achievements in Women’s Rights during their Lifetime

Holiday Retirement spotlights women’s achievements in celebration and honor of
Women’s History Month

Lake Oswego, OR, March 15, 2015 – American history has long been associated with significant events and notable women who have made invaluable contributions to society in the past century. These women have achieved greatness in their lives by winning the right to vote in 1920; attaining permanent status in the military in 1948; and breaking male-dominated barriers to becoming astronauts, race car drivers, business and military leaders, politicians, and professional sports figures.


In celebration of Women’s History Month, 4,132 Holiday Retirement female residents responded to a four-question survey about the significance of women’s rights, women as role models, and hopes for women in the future.

* 69 percent of female residents polled feel winning the right to vote was the greatest accomplishment for women in the 20th century and today.

* 33 percent of survey participants felt that Eleanor Roosevelt and her vocal support of African-American civil rights poses her as the best role model for young women.

* 35 percent believe the U.S. will elect its first female president within the next 10 years; however, it is also important to note that 18 percent of senior women surveyed believe there will never be a female president.

* 47 percent of those surveyed list their biggest hope for women in the future as achieving equal pay with their male counterparts.

In addition to the survey, Holiday Retirement received stories about inspirational women and their role in helping to shape women’s roles as we know them today.

“There are thousands of amazing women who live at Holiday Retirement communities,” said Jamison Gosselin, vice president of marketing, communications, and resident enrichment for Holiday Retirement. “Over casual conversations, our residents may learn their neighbor was a former Olympic medalist, the first African American female basketball player, or even the recipient of a prestigious military award. These women are a great part of our history and our future.”

Many of these women have played an active role in history and now share their achievements with fellow residents in senior living communities across the country. Here are a few of their stories:

Annie P., lifelong champion of civil rights
Annie, a resident at Rancho Village in Palmdale, California, is well-known for her lifelong efforts as a civil rights activist; in fact, she chartered a chapter of the NAACP in the Pacoima neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1945. When Martin Luther King, Jr., was assassinated, she and her husband chartered a plane to attend the funeral. She participated in the procession that walked behind his casket for more than 3.5 miles. You can also find her name engraved in the wall at The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change.

Judy D., 1952 Olympian
It was 63 years ago that Judy, now 90, represented the United States in the 1952 Helsinki Games, winning a silver medal in breaststroke. Judy was born and raised in southeast Portland and credits high school with where her Olympic dreams took hold. This Olympian now resides at Edgewood Downs in Beaverton, Oregon.

Lillie C., first African American female basketball player
At 90-years-young, Lillie was recently honored as one of the first African American women to play basketball in North Carolina. And for this momentous achievement, Lillie was named to the Hall of Fame at Atkins High School in North Carolina. Lillie grew up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, during a time of civil unrest in the South, but she was determined to be treated equally. She took part in protests and refused to leave lunch counters at North Carolina A&T University. Lillie considers herself as one of the original freedom riders. She currently lives at Forsyth Court in Winston-Salem.

Neva H., former Grand Prix driver and champion
At 92-years-old, Neva knows what it is like to have a need for speed. She’s a former Senior Malibu Grand Prix driver—and champion. Neva’s favorite part of racing: “Beating all the other men drivers.” She began racing in 1970, once her children were full-grown. Today, Neva proudly displays her awards at The Worthington in Gahanna, Ohio.

Katherine H., Order of Military Medical Merit award recipient
Known to many as Lieutenant Colonel Katherine H., she began her career in the U.S. Army as a volunteer in the wake of Pearl Harbor. Now, at 101 years old, Katherine is one of very few to receive the Order of Military Medical Merit award. This prestigious award recognizes Army medical personnel who have demonstrated the highest standards of integrity and moral character. She now calls Essington Place in Joliet, Illinois, home.

“These women are just five of the many who left major marks on American history, changing the future for men and women alike,” said Gosselin. “We encourage everyone to learn from our Greatest Generation and to strive to make their own impact on history.”

Pop-Punk, Progressive Rock Band Enter The Paradox to Release New Music Video and Radio Single “Sweet Intentions” from Debut Album Love, Loyalty and Mayhem: Part 1 out April 21, 2015

“Sweet Intentions” Going for Radio Adds March 10

Los Angeles, CA, March 15, 2015 - Los Angeles-based pop-punk, progressive rock band Enter The Paradox release their upbeat single that will surely excite any fans of Blink-182, Fall Out Boy and Muse. Enter The Paradox aim to showcase their high-energy and passionate storytelling through their debut album Love, Loyalty and Mayhem: Part 1 due out April 21, 2015.



“Sweet Intentions” is the first taste listeners will get until the release of their debut, a unique concept that unfolds through the lyrical prowess of front man Brian Bolen.

“From the beginning, I wanted every album Enter The Paradox made to be the essence of a story brought to life. Not just your typical love story, but one much deeper, with twists and turns you just don’t see coming; I wanted it to embody the feel of a psychological thriller with strong archetypal characters and themes,” Bolen states.

Bolen takes all the right risks that will catch anyone’s ear with the complex stories told through each song, a chapter one after another. The album follows the story of a young man named Fibonacci. Through his trials and tribulations, Fibonacci discovers the lessons of love, loyalty and mayhem.

Showcasing a melting pot of styles of cutting-edge rock, psychedelic, pop-punk, and hardcore fused together, Enter The Paradox bring their sound together in ways never before heard.

GiftWorksPlus Offers Tips for Selecting the Right Picture Frame

GiftWorksPlus offers guidance for framing family photos in custom frames.

Waukesha, WI, March 11, 2015 - GiftWorksPlus suggests four points to consider when choosing single or multiple photo frames: style, size, orientation, and personalization. There are so many custom designed frames available for framing family photos that it can be difficult to know which to select. Think about these factors before purchasing a new picture frame.


STYLE
What is the style of the d├ęcor in the room where photographs will be displayed? Does the room have a contemporary or a casual look? Traditional or country chic? Determine the ideal style and then choose customizable picture frames that match.

SIZE
What sizes of custom picture frames will be needed? Whether simply slipping photographs into customized frames or using mattes, consider the answer to this question and make any frame-size adjustments as needed.

ORIENTATION
Will photographs be displayed horizontally or vertically? Make sure the custom frames are aligned properly to display the photographs and the frame’s detailing properly. For collage displays, a mix of horizontal and vertical wooden frames can often add visual interest.

PERSONALIZATION
One of the hallmarks of a quality picture frame is its ability to be personalized to reflect the photograph within. Select a reputable company that offers detail-oriented personalization. GiftWorksPlus employs master craftsmen to create intricate engravings on customizable frames per customer requests. Further, free personalization is standard at GiftWorksPlus.

Based in Waukesha, Wisconsin, GiftWorksPlus offers an ever-increasing selection of engraved picture frames and picture gifts perfect for holidays or any occasion. All products are proudly crafted with care in the USA and custom orders are always welcome at GiftWorksPlus.

Leading Managed Security Provider Addresses Increase in Cyber-security by Disrupting Market Order

Netswitch Technology Management, Inc., one of the top 5 MSP’s in California has developed a Managed Security offering that is a game-changer in the managed security space.

San Francisco, CA, March 09, 2015 -- Netswitch Technology Management, Inc., one of the top 5 MSP’s in California has developed a Managed Security offering that is a game-changer in the managed security space.

The Gartner Group has defined Managed Security Services by identifying leaders in their Magic Quadrant who all offer a proprietary software system surrounded by services. Netswitch has flipped the model on its head by offering security services surrounding an open software stack customized to fit the customer’s specific security protection needs.


This approach has earned Steve King, the Chief Security Officer of Netswitch, acknowledgement as one of the 250 most influential people in Managed Services in 2014. Mr. King designed the MADROC Integrated Security Platform to address the increasing incidents of cyber-security breaches affecting companies of all sizes as an affordable, subscription based solution.

Mr. King was recently selected for Nine Lives Media’s seventh annual MSPmentor 250. The global list identifies the world’s leading Managed Services Provider (MSP) executives, entrepreneurs, experts, coaches and community leaders. “We congratulate Steve King on this distinguished honor and thank our readership community for submitting the nomination,” said Amy Katz, president of Nine Lives Media, a division of Penton (www.penton.com).

Instead of forcing a proprietary software solution at customers – one that will be outdated within six months at the rate things are changing in data security – MADROC customizes its technology stack with several software solutions from leading vendors with which Netswitch is partnered to fit the exact requirements of particular customer profile. Netswitch evaluated and tested 235 separate software systems addressing every possible point solution, before selecting a handful of the best price-performers to integrate in MADROC. And, to be sure that they keep pace with changes in attack techniques, they continue to test and evaluate new software products for consideration as new candidates for inclusion in the platform. This way, they insure that MADROC is always current.

To keep it affordable, MADROC is offered on a subscription basis. “Our clients don’t have to write a big check for software that will be obsolete in a year”, says King, who is also COO of Netswitch. “Making that kind of a capital commitment in a market that changes every 60 days is crazy. No one has the time or resources to stay abreast of these changes or to evaluate solutions today. There is literally a breach every day and most of them represent a new form of malware that hasn’t been seen before. Our model is to add continuous protection from a dangerous changing world populated by really smart cyber-criminals, so our customers don’t ever have to worry.”

Netswitch says that their technology stack is used by over 3,000 companies worldwide and provides protection from attacks from the endpoint, file-sharing, data, application, web and email sources, regardless of whether they have prior signatures or represent zero-day, unknown attacks. MADROC uses advanced behavioral analytics to detect and prevent advanced persistent threats in all forms from attacking a company’s assets.

About Netswitch:
Netswitch is a global technology solutions provider, serving businesses of all sizes whose model for success relies upon secure, smoothly running, and fully integrated IT systems.

Netswitch provides Managed Security Services, IT Support and Systems Integration Services in the US and Asia with offices in San Francisco, Thailand, Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai. Our MADROC® Integrated Security Platform is in use in over 3,000 client sites around the world providing intrusion detection and prevention, monitored and managed web firewalls and gateways, mobile device management, security information and event management, managed vulnerability, network mapping and performance monitoring and complete audit-ready regulatory compliance. http://www.netswitch.net/

Cibo (pronounced chee-bo) means food in Italian, but it’s more of a feast for the senses. This beautiful, spacious and comfortable restaurant features an intimate yet vibrant atmosphere which is accentuated with expressive art in the form of photography, paintings, sculpture, hand-blown glass and live jazz. Fusing the best of old and new world Italian cuisine, Cibo offers an eclectic menu ranging from gourmet pizzas to multi-course dinners. Families are welcome and there is a special children’s menu. Cibo has been a favorite of locals and visitors alike since 1990.
