SAFE International Launches Scarborough Private Self Defense Lessons – Scarborough, ON Self Defense

SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include private self defense lessons in Scarborough, ON.

Scarborough, ON, March 20, 2012 - (Straight Line PR) - Scarborough Self Defense, SAFE International Launches Scarborough Private Self Defense Lessons.

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Ontario. SAFE International has taught more than 150,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include private self defense lessons in Scarborough, ON.

SAFE International realizes that both women and men don’t necessarily want to join a martial arts club, or even take a public self defense seminar. SAFE International provides their mobile self defense right in the home. This allows SAFE International instructors to tailor the course based on the specific needs and concerns of the client. Self defense training in the home allows the client to be completely relaxed and comfortable training, without being self-conscious of others who might be watching in a public self defense course.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching private self defense Scarborough, is how receptive men and women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows the client to learn in a much shorter time. While some people have hours to dedicate to training, SAFE International can offer some basic, but effective self defense concepts in just a few hours.

SAFE International always covers Awareness and Avoidance strategies which are based on one's daily routines such as using elevators, car safety, home safety, plus much more.  We examine what an attacker looks for, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation. One of the biggest topics we explore is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete opposite. We cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage such as asking for directions or the time. The next stage is verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer possible. Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, SAFE International covers a few verbal strategies based on the aggressor and the scenario.

The third step is addressing the physical aspect of Scarborough private self defense lessons. Instructors begin with the advantages of adopting a passive stance rather than an aggressive stance. SAFE teaches gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario. Complex skills are proven to be ineffective in the high stress of real violence. The main philosophy taught is to “Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the Predator. 
SAFE International does not teach martial arts, but rather, practical, easy to adopt and highly effective concepts. Scarborough Private Self Defense is available to individuals, families, couples, or friends.

SAFE International has taught more than 150,000 clients including mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities. To contact SAFE International and Chris Roberts to schedule your Self Defense Private lessons, you can visit their main site at www.safeinternational.biz.

Online Gaming and Entertainment company 2UP signs MOU with European Video streaming company

Listed online gaming and entertainment company 2UP Gaming Plc (2GM:GR) has announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding to acquire European based video streaming business Streamark.

Nerang, Queensland, March 20, 2012 - Streamark develops applications based on streaming video, tracking and communications technologies for mobile telecom operators, TV network and cable operators and hardware manufacturers.

2UP business development director, Peter Flynn, says the acquisition has strategic importance for the company as it allows the live streaming of content at a faster pace and reduced rate.

“The Streamark technology gives 2UP a significant competitive advantage with a number of our live gambling products able to be delivered directly to mobile phones and tablets,” Mr Flynn says.

“However the biggest advantage of Streamark is its positioning and technology within the exploding internet protocol TV (IPTV) market and the ability to license their products.

“This is a new frontier for many businesses and start-ups in the delivery of content to mobiles, which Streamark provides a number of solutions including integrated billing and advertising services.”

The number of global IPTV subscribers is expected to grow from 28 million in 2009 to 83 million in 2013 with market revenues forecast to grow from US$12 billion to $38 billion in the same period.

Mr Flynn says emerging markets such as China and India have embraced new smart phone technologies and created enormous opportunities with limited bandwidth.

“Streamark’s technology can deliver HD video streaming for as little as 2mbps, compared with 20mpbs for standard broadcast, or 8mbps for one of the existing top mobile streaming providers,” Mr Flynn says.

“Its unique live video streaming technology can be used across a wide range of handsets such as Apple, Android, Symbian, Blackberry and WinMobile, running on mobile bandwidths EDGE, GPRS, to 3G and 4G.

“It’s a complete end-to-end solution that takes care of all the aspects of running a full IPTV service and a perfect fit for 2UP’s product offering.”

PC World in Romania tested Streamark’s seamless pre-encoding optimizing software in May 2011and found it provided a better and clearer image at a lower bandwidth as compared to other IPTV solutions.

2UP has announced it is finalising a number of other potential acquisitions and a major capital raising from a substantial private equity firm.

The acquisitions include DBG Poker and Asian pool betting company ToteDaddy.

2UP is also in negotiations for a joint venture with an online lottery company.

2UP Gaming Plc is a fully functional online casino incorporating many gaming and wagering products including the 2UP coin toss game which is played in most countries around the world where players make a call on whether two coins being tossed in the air will fall as two tails or two heads. A correct call wins.

This will be underpinned by other unique and established gaming and wagering options to be released as part of its growth plans.
