Luxury Travel Ltd to Continue Growth with New Golf Tours and a New Office in Central Vietnam

Golf tours are getting popular in Central Vietnam thanks to new airline access, luxury properties, and golf courses.

Danang, Vietnam, June 28, 2012 - Golf tours are getting popular in Central Vietnam thanks to new airline access, luxury properties, and golf courses.

Luxury Travel Ltd. (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com) is a long established Asian golf specialist and experts in luxury privately guided and fully bespoke holidays in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand. The company has just opened a new Danang office and launched new golf tour package “Central Golf Coast Tour of Vietnam” for travelers seeking challenging links.

The central coast is growing in stature as one of the hottest tourist spots in Southeast Asia, with a variety of attractions, including golf. Tour operators are now tapping into this growth with new products and offices.

While Vietnam hasn’t been historically synonymous with great golf, travelers can fly from Hanoi, HCM city or Singapore, BKK, and Kula Lumpur through Danang’s new international airport which has made the region a ‘must play’ golf experience in Asia.

“On our new 6 day tour, golf lovers will play a few of Vietnam’s world-class golf courses, including Montgomerie Links and Danang Golf Club. You will stay in the best beach front resorts in Danang or Hoi An. Additional historic cultural experiences will be available at Hue and Hoi An, and the stunning coastline of Vietnam will ensure that visitors will take away a truly memorable experience and a great story of newly-discovered adventures. This tour is also suitable for non-golfers companions.” said Pham Ha, founder and CEO of Luxury Travel Ltd (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com ).

For many travel experts, Danang is more appealing than Bali or Phuket and its beach has been voted one of the world’s best by Forbes Magazine.

“There are also two new golf courses, the Laguna Lang Co Golf Club and Ba Na Hills Golf Club, which are set to open in Central Vietnam in late 2012. The past two years have seen the completion of many luxurious resorts along the coastline with names such as Hyatt, the Nam Hai, Accord, Vinpearl, Intercontinental, and Fusion Maia entering the market and offering more choices for golfers. We will launch new exciting golf packages and our efforts are to promote Central Vietnam as a high-end golf destination in Southeast Asia. We are seeing the interest from golfers from the Middle East, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand” added Mr. Ha.

There are 29 golf courses in Vietnam and many others set to open, making Vietnam Asia's most exciting new golf tourism destination.

Vietnam’s first luxury tour operator/DMC (www.luxurytravelvietnam.com), based in Hanoi, and with offices throughout Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand, Luxury Travel is exceptional in designing tailor-made tours and providing unique travel experiences. Opened in 2004, the Luxury Travel Company Limited has its own offices, luxury vehicles, luxury travel advisors, and sales offices in California, London, Paris, and Sydney.

The Bank of Marion Selects Continuity Control for Compliance Platform

High-Performing Community Bank Looks To Improve Regulatory Efforts And Reduce Costs

New Haven, CT, June 28, 2012 - Continuity Control, the only complete compliance platform built for community financial institutions, today announced that The Bank of Marion (Illinois) has signed on to use the firm’s award-winning solution.

By centralizing all regulatory management activities, the Continuity Control platform enables financial institutions like The Bank of Marion to reduce the resources they spend on compliance while ensuring that they pass regulatory muster and effectively keep up with the steady stream of regulatory changes.

"We're a high performing bank and we try to do everything right,” says Ray Altmix, The Bank of Marion’s president and CEO, “but compliance still keeps me up at night, even more than a potential problem in the loan portfolio. Though we have done very well on our exams, I can’t say we've ever been able to keep up."

According to Mr. Altmix, by shifting certain responsibilities to the Continuity Control platform, the bank will be in position to do a more thorough job with fewer employees. “I see us getting by on one-half full-time employee less. And I’m not talking about a teller, I’m talking about mid-management."

The Bank of Marion, with over $330 million in total assets, is the largest locally owned and operated bank in Williamson County. By all key performance measures available through FDIC data, including efficiency ratio, return on assets, and return on equity, The Bank of Marion is an extraordinarily high-performing institution. The bank’s ability to achieve similar returns going forward is complicated, however, by the relentless rise in operating expenses due to increased regulations.

“Even a well-managed community bank like The Bank of Marion can't keep up with the 58 rule changes that have come down in the last six months, much less the 157 that have been issued in the past year. The costs associated with this kind of regulatory compliance represent an insurmountable challenge to their current business model,” says Andy Greenawalt, Continuity Control’s co-Founder and CEO. “Our platform is the only way for community banks to operate in this complex regulatory environment to maintain reasonable and sustainable overhead.”

Continuity Control’s mission is to help community financial institutions survive and thrive by offering personalized, expert service coupled with innovative technology to relieve the compliance burden. The firm was recognized as one of the five most interesting companies in financial services at FinovateSpring 2010 and recently named among the “10 Tech Companies to Watch” by Bank Technology News.

About Continuity Control
Continuity Control is an award-winning compliance platform that combines advanced software with personalized service to help community financial institutions effectively manage their regulatory burden. Founded in 2008 by distinguished technology, banking, and compliance specialists, Continuity Control’s platform effectively reduces the resources a bank or credit union must spend on compliance while ensuring that it passes regulatory muster. Built just for smaller banks and credit unions, Continuity Control is the most comprehensive compliance management platform on the market today for community financial institutions.

Indie Rock Band This is she, Release Debut EP Nobody is Ok July 3rd

Featuring the powerful single “grow up”

Los Angeles, CA, June 28, 2012 - This Is She is about to turn lives upside down with the release of their new 6-song EP, Nobody Is Ok, gigs at mega events like Summerfest, a performance with Cobra Starship later this year and the release of their video for the single “Grow Up”. With success biting at their heels, This Is She steps outside the box of typical indie rock to deliver catchy hooks, driving rhythms and to create progressive rock n’ roll laced with pop, dubstep and electronica. This Is She is set to present their Nobody Is Ok EP to the rest of the world, available on iTunes July 3rd.

This Is She ensued when Alana Grace (vocals), Ryan Folden (drums) and Christian Paul Meadows (guitar) met while performing at Warped Tour 2009. Alana Grace began materializing the idea behind her next musical venture and enlisted Folden and Meadows to pursue the new vision to eventually become This Is She. The trio stepped away from the traditional aspects of an indie rock band tapping into the dark side of rock incorporating a passion for dubstep and electronica to create a style all their own. This Is She relishes in their unique, unparalleled sound and the inability to neatly fit into any genre. The band delivers a blend of blissful pop, heavily-distorted rock music, and the bombast of modern electronic dance music, all punctuated by Grace’s tortured, emotive, and always-soaring vocals.

This ultramodern rock n’ roll trio flawlessly delivers with their new single and video “Grow Up”. The song highlights Grace’s vocal elegance while morphing the powerful hard rock guitar riffs into memorizing and intense dubstep and electronica samples. The inspiration behind “Grow Up” is a derivative from Grace’s personal life and an old relationship. Pulling from inner emotions Grace delivers with piercing vocals and hypnotizing harmonies.

In 2011 the group was hard at work producing, writing and recording Nobody is Ok at their own studio and at Blackbird Studios in Nashville. This highly anticipated release of Nobody Is Ok EP is the perfect introductory to give the world a taste of This Is She, available July 3rd.

It’s Another Contemporary Jazz Home Run for Project Grand Slam with The Joyfully Melodic and Grooving ‘Spring Dance’

When is the last time a jazz ensemble named after the nefarious scheme of a James Bond villain packed such a solidly melodic and grooving punch?

Hollywood, CA, June 27, 2012 - Project Grand Slam, named by leader Robert Miller as a play on “Goldfinger”’s plan to steal all the gold from Fort Knox, is probably the first—and he and PGS are up to plenty of melodic and grooving wonder this summer on Spring Dance, their explosive new album on Cakewalk Records.

The collection’s lead track is its title tune, an upbeat, feel-good, winner penned by Miller. Miller’s other songs include the Joe Zawinal tribute “Joe Z,” a high energy blast that brings to mind the fiery fusion magic of Weather Report, complete with exotic chanting and old school keyboards; the sensual and elegant soprano sax led ballad “Ma Petite Fleur,” a piece Miller dedicates to his wife and that he calls his favorite on the collection; the brass-fired, classic blues-funk explosion “Catch You Later”; and “Flat Busted,” an in-the-pocket, mid tempo grooving urban jazz tune featuring Gilad Ronen’s hypnotic flute runs.

Ronen and Joye Hennessey’s “Remember” is featured first as a dramatic and soulful, longing romantic vocal (highlighted by strings and an emotional sax solo) and, as a coda to Spring Dance, a thoughtful and reflective instrumental that evolves into a percussive, easy rolling, rhythmically engaging samba. Ronen also composed the ambient, slightly melancholy ballad “The Turn,” which featured a smoky sax melody and soaring horn textures.

The band also covered the old Hollie’s hit, “He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother”. Says Miller: “Joye did an incredible job with the song, almost like Mariah Carey singing jazz!”.

The eclectic nine-track collection is the follow-up release to PGS’ critically acclaimed 2008 debut, Play, which included the Top 20 jazz radio hit “The Captain Of Her Heart” (sung by Judie Tzuke). Five of the tracks from Play, along with the band itself (with Miller having a speaking part), were prominently featured in an episode of the hit NBC-TV series “Lipstick Jungle,” starring Brooke Shields. PGS did several live performances at clubs in NYC in addition to a charity show for the Ronald McDonald House.

For the new album Miller invited Mike Eckroth, keyboardist for guitar legend John Scofield, and alto sax man Danny Lerman to complement the core trio. After a few days of rehearsal, the new lineup of PGS convened in the studio and nailed the basic tracks in a week, with most songs done in two or three takes. After some overdubs, Justin Smith was brought in to sweeten some of the tracks with strings. And Joye Hennessey added her soaring vocals.

Miller is a renowned solo artist. His debut project, Child’s Play (Wildcat Records 1994) included performances by Randy Brecker, Jon Lucien and Anton Fig; his follow up, Prisoners of Love (1996) was released on 32 Records, a label Miller co-founded that became famous in the late ‘90s for a series of “Jazz For…” compilation recordings (Jazz For a Rainy Afternoon, Jazz For The Quiet Time, etc.) that dominated the Billboard Jazz charts and sold well over one million units. His band, The Robert Miller Group, played at many major New York area clubs, graduating to the national festival circuit where they appeared with artists like Bruce Hornsby, Bela Fleck and Kenny Barron.

“The essence of where we are as a group, and where I am personally in my life, is captured in the title track of the album with its upbeat vibe,” says Miller. “It’s a feel good kind of piece with an uplifting melody, funky beat and elements of my jazz fusion background. We’re all about strong melodies and great playing. What excites me most is exciting the listener.”

New up and coming Pop star, Irina releases her Single and Video “Something About You”

Irina Launches Debut Single "Something About You" on July 10th tith Remixes EP Due out Later this Summer

Los Angeles, CA, June 26, 2012 - Up and coming dance pop star Irina has prepared to make her mark in the music industry with her debut single “Something About You”. This upbeat dance song has it all – powerful vocals, a catchy hook, and danceable beats. Irina is an amazing vocalist and ready to show the world what she is made of with her unforgettable debut single and music video for “Something About You”. The new single will be available on iTunes July 10th and the brand new video will premiere on Irina’s own YouTube page on July 23rd.

Irina’s current musical journey ensued after the night she discovered the house and electro music scene while attending a few events in Miami. Inspired by her personal discovery of music and her roots in rock with a passion for Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Madonna and Michael Jackson, Irina was determined to incorporate the passion and energy to her own music. Thanks to her tightly honed chops and razor-sharp pop instincts, her music emerges as a dance-music powerhouse that lifts the listener to a more blissed-out dimension. The lead single “Something About You” pairs throbbing beats with brain-bending synth that’s both hypnotic and irresistibly dizzying. And with her taut, sensually charged vocals, she reveals both a dreamy pop sensibility and a dance-icon-worthy command of vocal texture and rhythm, “I want everyone to turn it up as loud as possible when they’re driving fast down the freeway and just feel that amazing positive energy,” says Irina. “It’s all I’ve ever dreamed of my whole life. What can be better than giving people the joy and freedom to express themselves during my song? That’s just AMAZING.” Irina’s powerful vocals and the catchy hook will have you humming the track and wanting more. Irina gracefully delivers a bend of blissful pop, a little rock and the bombast of modern electronic dance music to her debut single.

In her new video for “Something About You” Irina proves that not only does she have the voice, but she has the sex appeal and stage presence that captures an audience and has them coming back for more. For her debut video, Irina teamed up with the famous choreographer Mickey Minden (Pussycat Dolls) and enlisted renowned director Dustin Robertson whose credits include Madonna, Mariah, J-Lo and Lady Gaga, just to name a few. With the best in the industry at her side, Irina is ready to show the world what she was meant to do. Irina’s vision not only includes making music, but creating a stage show that combines stunning choreography with ravishing costumes (a must for the fashion-crazed singer, who regards designers like Jitrois, Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, Tom Ford, and Fendi, with unwavering reverence).

Originally hailing from Moscow -this now Miami resident has prepared all her life to share her true passion by studying dance and music from a very young age. However, despite her formidable talents and boundless support from her “very cultured, very intellectual” family, she ended up studying global economics and psychology. Following her years of education she pursued a career as a therapist, which enabled her to partly fulfill her lifelong desire to “bring happiness to people,” Irina ultimately took to the “dance-music mecca” of Miami to follow through with her long-simmering pop ambitions.

Children and Teens Point to Summer Camp as the Place Where Eating Disordered Behaviors Often Begin

Eating Recovery Center Urges Parents to be Proactive in Planning a Healthy Summer Camp Experience and Vigilant for Signs of Eating Disorders Once Children Return Home

Denver, CO, June 26, 2012 - More than 10 million American children attend a camp each summer. Because these children often spend weeks – and sometimes months – away from parental supervision, Eating Recovery Center, an international center for eating disorders recovery, urges parents to be aware of summer camp triggers that may contribute to the development of an eating disorder in their camp-going children.



“Every year, Eating Recovery Center sees many young patients who cite summer camp as the place where their disordered eating behaviors either began or intensified,” said Jamie Manwaring, PhD, primary therapist at Eating Recovery Center’s Behavioral Hospital for Children and Adolescents. “It is important to recognize that summer camps do not ‘cause’ eating disorders; however, camps’ environments can often be triggering for a child with the genetic or temperamental predisposition for an eating disorder.”

The onset of puberty, typically occurring between the ages of 10 and 14 for girls and 12 and 16 for boys, is one of the two most common times when eating disorders develop. Children in this age range who have a family history of eating disorders, who have previously engaged in disordered eating or who have highly sensitive, perfectionistic temperaments may be more likely to be triggered by camp activities or situations.

Potentially triggering activities or situations may include a competitive athletic environment, exposure to bunkmates’ or friends’ disordered eating behaviors, an intense focus on health and nutrition or anxiety about trying to “fit in” with new camp friends. Without ongoing parental supervision, children who begin engaging in disordered eating behaviors will often maintain, or intensify them throughout the duration of camp without their parents’ knowledge.

To help parents plan a healthy, fun camp experience for their children and proactively practice eating disorders prevention, Eating Recovery Center offers these five tips:

1. Look into the way meals are structured at your child’s camp. Are mealtimes staffed so that camp counselors sit with campers and are available to notice if a child has stopped eating or drastically changed his or her eating habits?

2. Do some comparative research if you intend on sending your child to a sports camp. Children with a family history of eating disorders may be better suited at a camp that is focused on recreation and fun, rather than one that is focused on competition and intense fitness.

3. Send your child to camp with positive messages. Emphasize to your child that the goal of summer camp is to have fun and meet new friends. Remind your children that you love them for who they are, not what specific activities they excel at, and that it does not matter if they are the fastest runners or strongest swimmers at camp.

4. Check in with your child while he or she is at camp. Use phone calls, emails and letters as an opportunity to ask open-ended questions about his or her camp experience. Look and listen for any sudden changes in your child’s overall outlook.

5. Keep an eye out for signs of eating disorders when your child returns home from camp. Is your child eating smaller portions or restricting certain foods altogether? Has eating become a power struggle? Has your child’s exercise regimen significantly increased or have you “caught” him or her exercising in secret? Do you suspect purging after meals? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, it may be time to seek help for a potential eating disorder.

“When parents see children after they have been away at a month- or summer-long camp, changes in body weight, overall health, general demeanor and outlook can become that much more noticeable,” explains Dr. Manwaring. “If your child exhibits worrisome behaviors after returning home, do not wait to seek help. With eating disorders, the earlier the intervention, the more successful the treatment will be. Early intervention saves lives.”

Parents are encouraged to seek an eating disorders assessment if they notice troubling behaviors in their children or adolescents when they return home from camp. Eating disorders recovery is entirely possible with early intervention and proper treatment from qualified professionals.

Creative Gazebos Selected as Gazebo of Choice for US Government Contract for Third Year in a Row

Creative Gazebos by Limerock Gazebos has been selected on the basis of price, quality and selection to provide Gazebos to US military and base locations for a third consecutive year. Gazebos are effective and attractive structures which serve well as event and waiting areas, employee break structures, and for adding a bit of charm and scenic relief.

Lancaster County, PA, June 21, 2012 (Straight Line PR) -- Limerock Gazebos, an Amish gazebo manufacturer in the heart of Amish country, Lancaster County Pennsylvania, was awarded a renewed contract for supplying and making gazebos available to US military bases for another year, and was awarded this contract through their dealer network and association with Specialty Prefab.

"We chose Creative Gazebos (Limerock Gazebos line) for their quality," says Eric Kinney of Specialty Prefab. "Their kits have always been easy to set up, and the 2012 kits and product are the best we've found. They are perfect for our government customers, because they're built to last."

Gazebo owners can select between wood or vinyl, and can cover the sides with screens or windows. Just covering three sides facing the most common wind direction is usually sufficient. Because side covers are held in place by two vertical slats it's a simple task to set them up as needed. Vinyl gazebos ( http://creativegazebos.com/vinylgazeboshome.html ) are similarly equipped.

There is a long history of using gazebos as a quick-to-set-up structure on military bases. Over the years, a few stories have developed surrounding them. Kinney recounts one story regarding gazebos and the "that's how it's always been done" mentality... such as the regular posting of a guard at the Fort Monroe Army Base's gazebo. When the question came up asking what the purpose for the guard was, the answer was "that's the way it's always been."

It turns out that, after investigating the matter further, the original posting of the guard was because the gazebo had been freshly painted and they didn't want anyone accidentally messing up the wet paint.

Limerock says of the Creative Gazebos ( http://www.creativegazebos.com/ ) product line: "They're versatile, attractive, strong and easy to set up. The kits ship to our dealers and can be quickly set up with with easy to follow plans, and come expertly packaged and protected for shipping, usually on a single pallet."

Limerock has been manufacturing and distributing their Gazebo designs nationally through their dealer network for over 20 years.

Over the years Limerock gazebos has added to their original gazebo kits ( http://www.creativegazebos.com/gazebo-kits.html ) product line and offers pergolas, pergola kits ( http://www.creativegazebos.com/pergola-kit.html ), and other outdoor wood structures for almost any need.
