Medical Care Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: MDCE), a children's health care service provider, today announced it has closed its third round of convertible note financing that to date has raised $752,500 for the Company.
Beijing, November 29, 2011 - Medical Care Technologies Inc. (OTCBB: MDCE), a children's health care service provider, today announced it has closed its third round of convertible note financing that to date has raised $752,500 for the Company.
This funding round came from private investors living in Hong Kong and totaled gross proceeds of $210,000. The Company will use the funds to address and provide for the retrofitting of sustainability objectives in its flagship children's health care center currently being constructed in Dongguan, China. Features being considered are motion sensor light switches, programmable thermostats, certified insulation, automatic hand dryers, recycling areas, low-E windows, tubular daylighting devices, dual flush systems and low-flow faucets. Management believes implementing these initiatives will not only help reduce operation costs in the long run but also provide an environment that is comfortable, safe and productive.
"We consider this funding a strong endorsement of Medical Care Technologies Inc.'s unique focus on children's health care in China and to ultimately deliver the best facility possible," stated Ning Wu, Chief Executive Officer of Medical Care Technologies Inc. "We are targeting an area of high unmet health care need in China that fits well with our investors' investment philosophy."

"Our decision to adopt this approach during the construction process supports our commitment to environmental stewardship and conservation, and results in an optimal balance of cost, environmental, societal, and human benefits while meeting the mission and function of our kid's health care facility. We are thinking for the future and we will be ready to provide services in a manner that will have real, calculable benefits for our children, environment and our community."
The facility is scheduled to open in early 2012.

Brand new release of StringSlinger™ Secrets DVD Program makes learning the guitar easier and faster
MT. Clemens, MI, November 29, 2011 - RockStar Academy announced today the release of its "Learn to Burn Fast" StringSlinger Secrets DVD Video Series, a program designed to speed up the pace at which aspiring guitarists master the guitar.
Dem Miller, also known as Detroit Dem, has played in bands that have opened for the likes of Seether, Saliva, Red, Tantric, Tesla, Vince Neal, Tap Root, Bad Company, Great White, Dokken, and others. He has taught hundreds of students over the past 10 years, and he has now decided to apply his guitar knowledge for the benefit of would-be players. "There's an easier way to learn guitar fast,” says Dem. “Conventional texts would have students repeat the same musical scales over and over, leading to frustration and boredom. I have created StringSlinger to accelerate the process and restore the fun that comes with playing. It really teaches one how to learn guitar quickly."
The "StringSlinger Secrets" System allows players to learn and dominate the fretboard, and it includes Dexterity Exercises, Fretboard Domination, Working with Rhythm, Moveable Shapes, Explaining Modes, and more. Players can memorize and play the pentatonic positions, as well as modal positions, in any mode and any key, and move fluently up and down the neck of the guitar. By following this structured, logical approach, Detroit Dem estimates the time to guitar mastery to be 3 to 5 times faster than with conventional methods.
This course also contains DVDs on Chords/Tunings, Riffs/Rhythms, and a free bonus program entitled "Song Series #1," which covers 10 great songs spanning 5 decades. This program is not for absolute beginners, but works well for those guitar players who know some chords and scales. Mr. Miller has provided a pathway that cuts out unnecessary waste when learning to play - a program that serves as a great starting point in quickly mastering the guitar. Learning that might cost $2,000 in private lessons can be purchased for about $100.
One of Dem's former students, Bobby, says: "Dem's method helped me understand everything about the guitar and how to dominate the fretboard." Bobby does practice a lot, but he shows what is possible by using the "LearntoBurnFast" StringSlinger Secrets System. A sampling of his playing can be seen on the testimonial page of the website: www.learntoburnfast.com.

Brandon Wilson’s inspiring book, "Along the Templar Trail," has been published in a new German edition, "Auf dem Templerweg: Sieben Millionen Schritte für den Frieden." The English edition won the 2009 Lowell Thomas Gold Award for BEST TRAVEL BOOK.
Paia, HI, November 29, 2011 - In this time of political grandstanding, it is refreshing to hear about someone who quite literally, “walks the talk.” Recently, author/photographer Brandon Wilson and his 68-year-old French friend completed an eleven-country walk for peace from France to Jerusalem. In doing so, they founded the “Templar Trail.”
Wilson’s inspiring book about their odyssey, "Along the Templar Trail: Seven Million Steps for Peace" (2008) has been translated by Imke Healy and published by Pilgrim’s Tales in a new German edition, "Auf dem Templerweg: Sieben Millionen Schritte für den Frieden" (November 2011). The English edition won the 2009 Lowell Thomas Gold Award for BEST TRAVEL BOOK from the prestigious Society of American Travel Writers Foundation (SATWF).
This true chronicle interweaves adventure, intrigue, wit and social commentary into an entertaining Chaucerian tale about overcoming odds and discovering the secret to creating peace. The courageous journey from France to Jerusalem traced one marched a millennium ago by those who became the first Knights Templar. Like those men, the modern pilgrims’ walk was filled with extreme highs and lows. The men trekked 2620-miles (the equivalent to crossing the U.S.) across difficult terrains in extreme climates, from the freezing Black Forest to Turkey’s broiling plains. There was the mental test of hiking 30-50 km., a virtual marathon, each day. However, the pair frequently met “angels” whose random acts of kindness bolstered their resolve. But when war erupted between Israel and Lebanon, violence mounted in Damascus, and Hemorrhagic Fever raged in Turkey, everything became uncertain – except for their steadfast and perhaps life-threatening resolve.
Their trek attracted the attention of national television networks and major newspapers along the route, allowing them to spread an impassioned message of peace to millions of Christians, Muslims and Jews alike throughout eleven countries. Without exception, those ordinary people echoed their call to focus on our commonality instead of our differences – and the urgency of resolving our problems before it’s too late.
Asked why he set-off on this quest, Wilson explained, “I’m convinced that one person can still make a difference in today’s world – and the time is now. It’s time for truth and tolerance, instead of blindly following a road of mutual destruction. I’m re-establishing this Templar Trail as an international path of peace for people of all cultures, faiths and nationalities. Let’s set aside our differences; let’s walk as one.”
This tale of empowerment stands as a strong testimony to the courage of the human spirit. Arun Gandhi, president of the M.K. Gandhi Institute for Nonviolence, calls it, “A fascinating testimony of faith and gumption…A must read.”
About the Author
Brandon Wilson is no novice to these types of historic journeys. This world adventurer and perpetual pilgrim has walked five of the world’s most important pilgrimage trails: the Camino de Santiago and Via de la Plata across Spain, the St. Olav’s Way across Norway, and he was the first American to walk the 1150-mile Via Francigena from England to Rome. His fascination began when he and his wife Cheryl became the first western couple to walk a traditional Buddhist pilgrim trail from Lhasa, Tibet to Kathmandu, Nepal in 1991. Still going strong, he and his wife recently were among the first to hike the challenging Via Alpina the length of the Alps for 1200 miles from Trieste to Monte Carlo.
Brandon Wilson is also the award-winning author of Yak Butter Blues: A Tibetan Trek of Faith (2004), Dead Men Don’t Leave Tips: Adventures X Africa (2005), and Over the Top & Back Again: Hiking X the Alps (2010), recipient of the 2010 Book of the Year Bronze Award from ForeWord Reviews. His story “Life When Hell Freezes Over” appeared in They Lived to Tell the Tale: True Stories from the Legendary Explorers Club (The Lyons Press/Globe Pequot, 2007). His photos have won awards from National Geographic Traveler and Islands magazines. He is a member of the prestigious Explorers Club.
“A vivid and eye-opening blend of history, adventure, religion, mysticism and modern conflict… We cannot resist being swept along with the fervor of this quest. It is simply one of the most remarkable adventure stories of our time, and one that proves that with the right combination of character and determination great things can be done, and the eyes of the world can be opened.” ~ Richard Bangs, adventurer/author/host of the PBS series Richard Bangs’ Adventures With Purpose
“More than the mere adventure of two brave men, it is a grand and noble quest for peace, as well as a spiritual voyage that will leave readers emotionally and intellectually replenished…I immensely enjoyed reading this book. His writing combines a marvelous sense of Zen with good humor, and his personal style makes you feel as if you were there taking part in it all…” ~
Midwest Book Review
“If we want peace on earth, we must make the effort to embody peace with each step. Brandon Wilson's inspiring journey, told beautifully in this book, is a living example of peacemaking.” ~ Cindy Sheehan, noted peace activist
“A rhapsody on the theme of pilgrimage. May Brandon Wilson's goal of fostering peace along the glory roads of the world inspire a trail of pilgrims to create their own sacred journeys in the interest of world peace.” ~ Phil Cousineau, author of The Art of Pilgrimage and The Book of Roads
“Rich with descriptive detail, replete with humor and never lacking in the life-altering experiences of his previous journeys, Along The Templar Trail is arguably Wilson's most personal, passionate book yet – a resolute plea for compassion in an often intolerant world…” ~ C.W. Gortner, author of The Last Queen

“The insurance only applies to those participating in an active Occupy demonstration,” said Fraser. “The insurance also covers those in other Occupy movements in other countries.”
Houston, TX, November 24, 2011 - Today marks a week since the Occupy “Day of Action” in New York, which left more than 240 people arrested, five protesters charged with felony assault, and seven officers and 10 protesters injured, but the developers of a new website say they’ve made it possible for all Occupy protesters to get insurance to cover their bail if they are arrested in the future.
“This insurance will cost only $99 for the year and cover bail for misdemeanor charges up to $1,000,”said Aaron Fraser, developer and spokesman for the new websites, Occupyfannie.org and occupyFreddie.org.
Fraser added that the insurance would also cover property damage up to $500.
“The insurance only applies to those participating in an active Occupy demonstration,” said Fraser. “The insurance also covers those in other Occupy movements in other countries.”
The insurance offering could prove to have perfect timing as word of the planned eviction surfaced a day after the Occupy LA group rejected what they described as a city offer to give them indoor space, farmland and other concessions as inducements for the hundreds of demonstrators to leave City Hall on their own.
Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's office said in a statement it had "informed members of Occupy LA that City Hall park will be closed at some point next week for rehabilitation."
If Occupy protesters don’t evacuate when the park closes, arrests will be made.
“I am offering Occupy protesters an opportunity to purchase protesters insurance,” Fraser explained. “Any protester that is arrested and has this insurance can be bailed out by our organization.”
He added that Occupy protesters can purchase additional insurance to protect their personal property as well.
“They must have the insurance for at least 30 days, and collection of property insurance must accompany a police report,” Fraser noted, before adding that in addition to the insurance, those who want to help defray the cost of feeding Occupy protesters can help by purchasing T shirts from the Occupyfannie.org or OccupyFreddie.org website.
The OccupyFreddie.org and OccupyFannie.org websites, Fraser said, were recently launched to raise awareness and call citizens to non-violent action through the vehicle of public protests against Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae.
The protest, funded and sponsored by Gotham Dating Partners Inc., will be held Nov. 28 at the Freddie Mac building in the 8200 block of Jones Branch Drive, McLean, Va. and Nov. 29 at the Fannie Mae headquarters, located in the 3900 block of Wisconsin Avenue in Washington, D.C.
“The public can go to OccupyFreddie.org and OccupyFannie.org website to buy shirts to participate in the movement, Fraser said, before adding, “I want to connect with the young and old who are tired of corporate greed and want to show it by publically protesting.”
Supporters of the Occupy movement, Fraser explained, can now purchase insurance and also provide support to help cover other costs in the event Occupy protesters find themselves in a situation similar to the “Day of Action,” which was an attempt to delay the opening of the New York Stock Exchange with demonstrations on the subways, a sit-in in the roadway at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge and unscheduled clashes with the police in Zuccotti Park.
“It’s clear that arrests will occur, but now Occupy protesters can be covered in the event they are arrested,” Fraser said.
For more information about the protester’s insurance or to provide financial support with the purchase of a T-shirt, please visit: OccupyFreddie.org and OccupyFannie.org
