theLocBox Provides a Critical Layer of Added Security to Dropbox

theLocBox, a new utility created for Dropbox users, has been built to provide an additional layer of military grade encryption to files stored in the cloud technology.

Penticton, British Columbia, August 26, 2011 - Doug Oucharek and Stephen Joyce have teamed up to provide users of the Dropbox cloud storage facility with a critical layer of user-enabled protection for sensitive files and documents. Under a barrage of scrutiny due to recent hacks and comprised security, Dropbox has been referred to as, “a haven for data thieves”. theLocBox is designed to protect Dropbox users against data thieves by putting security in the hands of the user. Each user creates a ‘key’ that they hold, ‘locking’ the data before it’s placed into the Dropbox facility. Even if the security at Dropbox is compromised, hackers will be unable to access files protected by theLocBox.

Says Oucharek, “There’s no question that Dropbox provides an essential function, but users need to have confidence in their cloud storage. theLocBox can provide them with the extra level of comfort that their data is protected.”

Adds Joyce, “There is no such thing as a traditional workplace anymore. Brick and mortar still has its place but more and more companies are turning to the virtual workspace and online collaboration. It’s critical that companies can rely on the security of their virtual office. There is a definite place for theLocBox technology in today’s workplace.”

Brisbane Plumber Offered Bathroom Caring Tips!

Looking for a Brisbane Plumber can be tough to find these days, and according to Paul head of the leading Brisbane plumbing company, The Best Brisbane Plumber, “it’s quite sad.”

Brisbane, Qld, August 26, 2011 - Notwithstanding how prevalent they may appear in the Yellow Pages today, The Brisbane Plumber noted that not all plumbing service providers provide a quality service with their work, particularly if you have are having a problem with your bathroom.

“A bathroom is the only place where people can privately do most of their sanitary needs, and an out-of-order bathroom means a distraught time for everybody – especially when someone urgently needs to go do their thing,” said Paul.

The Brisbane Plumber further stated that when a bathroom is clogged, it is often a source of distress and worry to most people.

“It can not only cause agony, but it can also prolong everybody’s daily ritual since the bathroom would need to be immediately fixed first before it can normally be used again back to its original business,” he added.

The Brisbane Plumber offered the following bathroom basic caring tips:

Tip #1: Understanding the basic needs of your bathroom drainage.
As convenient your bathroom drainage system function may seem, it is very important to understand that this drainage system is not as fool proof as you might imagine. Household or even office drainage is designed to systematically carry water waste only and not solid waste. Aside from this, one should also remember that all household drainage do not share the same pipeline size. Any solid material (e.g., hair strands, small pieces of paper & plastic) is never welcome as its implication could result from a major drainage clog to a complicated pipe problem.

Tip #2: Regularly pour hot water to clear your drainage.
If you can’t afford to hire a plumber to quarterly check your bathroom drainage or this type of maintenance keeping proves too much for your budget to handle, an alternate way to clear the clogs in your bathroom pipe is by pouring hot water in to it. To do this, begin the whole step by pouring in at least 2-3 litres of water. After the water successfully passes through, you can now start pouring in the hot water slowly. This process should be done for at least 30 – 60 minutes to intricately remove all the chemical residues in your drainage.

Tip #3: Call an expert, call for help
Some bathroom drainage problems are best left in the hands of an expert, especially serious drainage clogs. Before hiring a plumber, however, make sure you hire a qualified service provider to do the job. One of the best ways to determine if your plumber is a qualified serviceman is through certification. A Brisbane Plumber Bathroom that can’t show you a certificate means a red flag, so better avoid them.

New Study Show A Rise in Childhood Eating Disorders

Nutritionists often write about the obesity epidemic and how it is affecting children. An August 1 article on Yahoo! Health, “Anorexia Affecting Young Children in UK: Statistics,” was particularly disturbing, with statistics on the rate of reported cases of anorexia or bulimia for children 5 to 15 years old in the UK.

New York, NY, August 26, 2011 -- Nutritionists often write about the obesity epidemic and how it is affecting children. An August 1 article on Yahoo! Health, “Anorexia Affecting Young Children in UK: Statistics,” was particularly disturbing, with statistics on the rate of reported cases of anorexia or bulimia for children 5 to 15 years old in the UK. Over the past three years, nearly 2,100 cases of these ailments were treated: 98 cases involving patients 5 to 7 years old, 99 cases involving 8- or 9-year-olds, almost 400 involving children ages 10 to 12, and more than 1,500 involving 13- to 15-year-olds.

The UK is not alone in facing this problem, and it’s very likely that the US has the problem on a comparable scale. In fact, the article pointed out that the actual numbers of cases are most likely higher than the study reported. Parents are faced with growing extremes of both dangerously overweight and underweight children.

“We need to encourage our children to embrace their individuality and teach them the proper way to feed and exercise their bodies, minds and spirits,” say Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, co-authors of the amazing rapid fat loss book TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH). “We need to set the example.

The 8-step program outlined in the book provides a roadmap to optimal health by feeding and exercising our bodies in the most natural and beneficial way. The authors honor the uniqueness of each individual, which makes us all human yet different enough to make the world a very interesting place.

Celebrating the BICENTENNIAL of URUGUAY, “Enamorados del Tango (Tango Lovers)” performed in New York for the first time, on August 20th, 2011 at the Queensborough Performing Arts Center.

Miami, FL, September 03, 2011 - Feedback received from the audience describes an array of emotions that the group was able to transmit through their art. Among the audience were local authorities, the Consul of Uruguay and people from different nationalities, such as Uruguayans, Argentineans, Colombians, Canadians, Americans, Ecuadorians, Peruvians, Russians, among others.

TANGO LOVERS has been by far, the best TANGO show we have ever seen in the NEW YORK area.

From previous presentations the group’s performance was described by a renowned journalist and TV anchor in Uruguay, Alberto Kesman as the best Tango show in Montevideo in 2010, “Enamorados del Tango is absolutely an amazing show of the highest quality. The excellent artistic expression of the group walks the audience through different stages of the TANGO dance

The musical director, Federico Britos, through his impeccable performance and versatility, demonstrated the audience the reason for his four times Grammy awarding. He brilliantly mastered his violin from Candombe to TANGO. Gustavo Casanave, current Director of the Jazz Department at the Harbor Conservatory for the Performing Arts in New York City and considered by his native country press as “one of the best pianists of Uruguay”, amazed the audience throughout his presentation and remarkably with his piano solo while performing “Adios Nonino”. Miguel Arrabal and Pedro Giraudo at the Bandoneon and Counterbass respectively, complemented the wonderful group of musicians with their superb interpretation. Alfredo Lerida displayed his talent not only through his magnificent voice but also with his creativity as artistic director and general producer of the show. Tomas Alcon, a long time TANGO ambassador made an excellent complement to Alfredo’s contemporary touch.

Among the dancers, Marcos and Magdalena Ayala, amazingly young talents which made the audience vibrate with their sensuality and passion for TANGO. Rodrigo and Mercedes Fleitas, Sara Grdan and Ivan Terrazas from Uruguay, Croatia and Argentina showed that TANGO has no borders.
