AuraPortal Creates AuraPortal Cloud to Offer IaaS and SaaS Services to any Organization

AuraPortal Cloud Computing enables any entity to enjoy the benefits of the best Business Process Management (BPM) software, with the fastest and safest hardware, without any investment or maintenance worries and at a very affordable price.

Woburn, MA, October 31, 2013 – AURA (www.auraportal.com), a global provider of Business Process Management (BPM) software, has announced the creation and launch of its sound Cloud Computing structure.

This will enable any type of organization, public or private, to undertake BPM implementation projects through the AuraPortal.(*) suite without the usual structure and investment concerns inherent in such projects, and with the software licenses included in the service.


AuraPortal has been distinguished with great advantage over its competitors by Ovum in its Decision Matrix (2011) report and by other renowned analyst firms.

The idea of the Cloud is simple: It consists of adopting for the computing services the same model used in utilities services.

In the same way that an electricity user simply plugs in a cable to obtain power supply without bothering whatsoever about the cost and knowledge required to build and manage power plants and distribution grids, a company will be able to manage its processes with the AuraPortal BPM suite by simply connecting to Internet from any browser; and what is more, this allows complete mobility as AuraPortal can be accessed from any tablet or smartphone, without having to think about hardware or software requirements.

After several years of development and fine tuning, Cloud Computing is rapidly becoming the latest and unstoppable trend for the use of software applications, now that it is clear that the questions about access, security and reliability have been overcome.

Whatever the level of service, the user does not have to invest in hardware or software, AuraPortal handles all the necessary investments.

Ecotech Institute to Collect Old Electronics as Part of America Recycles DaySM on November 15

Ecotech Institute’s Celebration will also include an art and upcycling contest

Denver, Colorado, October 31, 2013 – On November 15, Ecotech Institute will host an electronics drop off station, accepting old electronics such as TVs, computer monitors and printers. This recycling event joins thousands of others across the country in celebration of America Recycles Day. This is a national initiative by Keep America Beautiful and the only nationally recognized day dedicated to promoting and celebrating recycling in the United States. This year’s theme, “I Want to Be Recycled,” was developed to educate people about the importance of recycling and its impact on our economy and environmental well-being, as well as motivate occasional recyclers to become everyday recyclers.


At Ecotech Institute’s celebration, electronics will be collected at the school at 1400 S. Abilene Street in Aurora, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. In addition to the collection center, Ecotech Institute students will take part in an upcycling contest, giving them a chance to show off their creativity by creating upcycled outfits. This could include creating outfits from recyclable materials such as plastic bags, newspaper, garbage bags, aluminum foil and many other items.

“We are very proud supporters of Ecotech Institute’s America Recycles Day event and commend their efforts to promote recycling in the Denver area,” said Brenda Pulley, Senior Vice President of Recycling at Keep America Beautiful and national program manager for America Recycles Day. “Recycling is the easiest thing we can all do to improve our community, conserve natural resources and create green jobs. Collectively, through events like these, we aim to make recycling bigger and better 365 days a year.”

Ecotech Institute is also hosting an art contest for elementary students. Artwork can be dropped off at the school, 1400 S. Abilene Street, for consideration or emailed to Zhanna Stavina at zhanna.stavina@ecotechinstitute.com. Ecotech Institute will use this year’s winning artwork as the logo for next year’s America’s Recycles Day celebration.

“Recycling is something many people take for granted, but it’s a simple act that has tremendous impact,” said Kyle Crider, Ecotech Institute’s Manager of Environmental Operations. “For example, making cans from recycled aluminum actually uses 95 percent less energy than non-recycled materials.”

The national recycling rate is currently at 34.7 percent. Recycling 75 percent of the nation’s waste would create nearly 1.5 million jobs by 2030, according to a report by the Tellus Institute with Sound Resource Management.

The Ideal Woman, According to Wealthy Men

A blonde, blue-eyed beauty appears to be the ideal woman for wealthy men looking for young, attractive women. Newly released survey findings reveal the most desirable as well as the most unwanted traits of a rich man’s dream woman.

San Rafael, CA, October 31, 2013 - The ideal woman of wealthy men is a young, 25-28 year old Caucasian blonde with blue eyes and a slim physique standing at about 5’6” tall, according to a new online study. www.SugarDaddyForMe.com, the world's largest sugar daddy dating website, recently asked 1,352 wealthy male members to describe their ideal woman.



The top voted results reveal that the perfect “sugar baby” is also preferably 11-15 years younger than the sugar daddies who completed the survey. And when asked about the importance of other appearance factors, a sensual body ranked higher than a beautiful face. When asked to choose the one body feature that they like most on a woman, a slim body was by far the top choice, followed by great legs. Contrary to common stereotypes, large breasts were selected as only the third most important body feature by the rich men who replied to the survey, with a voluptuous derriere behind in fourth place in their preferences. The men surveyed deemed a beautiful smile fully 2 times as important as beautiful hair, which will surprise many women and please their dentists, but not their hairdressers.

The wealthy men were then asked to rate the importance of various personality characteristics. Having a great personality was rated twice as important as intelligence, and a woman's sexual nature was rated almost 3 times as important as her ability to get along with his friends and family, or being a good travel partner.

The 3 most important personality characteristics according to the survey of rich men were:
1) Honesty
2) Loyalty
3) Faithfulness

The characteristics rich men find least important in their ideal woman include being successful, assertive, talkative and dominant. When asked what characteristics they found least attractive, a woman being a drama queen and demanding were both bigger negatives to these men even than a woman doing too much drugs. And a woman being liberal or conservative politically was one of the least important factors of all for these wealthy men.

When it comes to race and income, SugarDaddyForMe.com found that the smaller the man's income, the less important race is. Most wealthy Caucasian and African-American men find women in their own race as being the ideal one. However a majority of the wealthy Asian and Hispanic men surveyed consider Caucasian women to be more attractive than women in their own race. And men with an annual income of less than $1 million prefer slim women, whereas men making over $1 million prefer athletic women.

About SugarDaddyForMe.com:
Online dating website, SugarDaddyForMe.com is the world’s largest Sugar Daddy Matchmaking, Personals and Dating service with over 4 million members and over 2,000 new members join the site every single day. Since launching in 2005, the website has set the mold for the sugar daddy cultural phenomenon with the goal to bring together successful, generous men and attractive young women that love to be pampered, spoiled and supported. Recently featured in MTV's True Life episode "I Am a Sugar Baby", two episodes of both The Montel Williams Show and The Tyra Banks Show, Good Morning America, The New York Times and numerous other TV shows, publications, documentaries and anthropological studies.

Luxury Travel, the leading Asian Specialist to showcase its Luxury Expertise and Responsible Tourism at WTM London 2013

Vietnam-based Luxury Travel is attending both WTM and ILTM to promote luxury travel products at World Travel Market London 2013 (WTM) from November 4 to 7.

Hanoi, Vietnam, October 31, 2013 - Vietnam-based Luxury Travel is attending both WTM and ILTM to promote luxury travel products at World Travel Market London 2013 (WTM) from November 4 to 7.

This year, Luxury Travel has expanded the size of its stand which will be located just in front of the Vietnam Tourism Board and Vietnam Airlines stand.


Luxury Travel is attending both WTM and A Taste of Luxury at ILTM, is an official supporter of World Responsible Day at WTM and has launched several new responsible tours.

According to Pham Ha, founder of Luxury Travel, the UK has been a great market for the company, whose products appeal to British tastes and preferences, particularly tailor-made tours and the two set departure tours on offer.

The company enjoyed over 200% growth from the UK in the first 9 month of 2013, compared with the same period last year, partly because of favourable exchange rates.

Luxury Travel Ltd. has increased the number of private small groups that it served, primarily with tailor-made holidays.

Luxury travel is not just about limos and five-star hotels, but creating memorable experiences and Luxury Travel ensure that its guests feel part of the place rather than a casual observer, the authentic experience being particularly popular with visitors from Britain.

Getting off-the-beaten track, relaxing on the beach at less visited places such as Con Dao and Phu Quoc as well as combining Vietnam with visits to Cambodia, Laos or Myanmar are great favourites with the UK market.

Vietnam is appealing to British visitors because of its safety, affordable prices, authenticity, lovely weather and convenient direct flights with Vietnam Airlines.

The past few years have seen the completion of many luxurious resorts such as Hyatt Regency Danang Resort and Spa, Intercontinental Peninsula Danang Sun Spa and Six Senses Con Dao and the increased choice and deluxe brands have proved a great hit with the British.

Mr Pham Ha, Mr Richard Parks and Ms Anita Sach, Luxury Travel's reps in the UK, will be attending both ITLM and WTM 2013; travel trade professionals wanting to learn more about the company, learn how to sell Indochina to the most sophisticated travellers or discuss a fam trip, can book an appointment in advance with them at phamha@luxurytravels.asia or drop by stand AS587.

* Preview of upcoming Vintage Bollywood Memorabilia auction
* 2013 marks 100 years of Bollywood
* Vintage memorabilia from the greatest Bollywood films of all time
* 150 lots including vintage LPs, film banners, Bollywood posters and gramophones

London, UK, October 30, 2013 - Celebrating 100 years of Bollywood, Conferro Auctions is hosting a special preview of its upcoming inaugural auction of Vintage Bollywood Memorabilia on 14 – 15 November at the Westbury Gallery, Westbury Hotel, Mayfair, W1.

The auction features collectables such as LPs, film banners and Bollywood posters from some of the milestones of Indian film history, including Mughal-e-Azam (1960) and Sholay (1975), which were recently voted the top two greatest Bollywood films of all time.



The 150 lots include vintage LPs, banners, synopses, posters, lobby cards and gramophones from the last 100 years of Bollywood history, which will be auctioned on 29 November.

Bollywood has become one of the world’s largest film industries since the debut of its first official film on 3 May 1913, Raja Harishchandra by Dadasaheb Phalke. Producing some 1,000 films a year (twice the annual output of Hollywood), the stars of its silver screen are known the world over.

As reported by The Telegraph, the UK is home to the largest audience for Bollywood films outside of India, contributing 15-20 per cent of the industry’s profits.

Says Conferro’s Director Sharan Seth, “With Bollywood such an ingrained part of our cultural identity and the timely centenary of Bollywood film, our first auction reflects India’s rich and vibrant history and artistic practices”.

Dr Anna Morcom, Senior Lecturer at Royal Holloway University adds, “Since the 1990s, Bollywood has gone global on a new level, embraced enthusiastically by the Indian diaspora and through them, has gained a presence in the mainstream of US and UK culture”.

Hydro Dynamics HHO, Releases New Website HydroDynamo.com

HydroDynamo.com was designed to inform the public on how to Save fuel and Reduce Carbon Pollution created by Diesel and Gasoline engines.

Boca Raton, FL, October 30, 2013 - The public in alarming numbers is voicing concerns over the high cost of fuel and the record levels of Carbon Pollution (400 PPM). The price of fuel around the world is at high levels, the public is demanding a solution.

The new HydroDynamo.com website domain was designed to inform and offer solutions. The website is linked to HydroDynamicsHHO.com's website and information blog. Here the consumer can find the latest and most up to date information available.


The easiest and most efficient solution for those who commute over the road is a Hydrogen "Booster". This is where Hydrogen gas is injected into an engine helping petroleum fuels burn cleaner and more efficiently. NASA has been using Hydrogen for over 20 years, it was on all the Space Shuttle Missions (NASA.gov).

To properly harness and utilize Hydrogen gas safely requires knowledge and experience. Kits or homemade HHO units may lack the integrity and design necessary to be safe and work properly. Some instructions (DIY) show how to use a plastic bottle or glass Mason jar; kits may have a thin plastic housing and get very hot when the needed power is supplied to them. These methods can be dangerous and may burn up or stop working.

Hydrogen on demand is safe when properly used. It can help internal combustion engines run smoother and cleaner reducing the Carbon pollution they create (+/-85%) and helps burn fuel more efficiently increasing MPG (20% to 50%).

Those interested in utilizing Hydrogen gas, look for a unit that is well constructed and large enough to handle the current/amperage needed for your engine. Follow directions and find that “sweet spot,” you will be helping yourself and the environment. Information is available online; at www.HydroDynamo.com

The HydroDynamicsHHO.com™ team has been advancing Hydrogen Technologies since 1999. They have incorporated the latest designs into their latest release; the Hydro Dynamo "Booster, ™ improvements others do not have. Individuals and Companies interested in saving fuel and helping our environment call or email for the latest information and updates.

Go GREEN – Burn Clean!

Five Myths about Google Sites


Google Sites, a member of the Google Apps family, is a strong tool for creating wikis and web pages.

Los Gatos, CA, October 29, 2013 - Google Sites, a member of the Google Apps family, is a strong tool for creating wikis and web pages. Offered through the Google Apps Productivity suite, it allows individuals to create a collaborative website where numerous users can share files. Sadly, not many people know about Google Sites despite the potential benefits it has to offer. This is because of a number of myths that plague users’ minds and prevent them from availing this service.


If you have heard a few bad things about Google Sites, check them against the following top myths about this service and discover the truth.

Myth #1) Google Sites isn’t Free

People have gotten used to finding a catch in everything, which is why it’s easier to suspect that such a valuable service comes with a price. However, Google Sites is free. Regardless of the number of websites you create, rest assured that you don’t have to pay a dime, not even for upkeeping or web hosting.

Myth #2) Google Sites Doesn’t Offer Much Storage

Sites created via a personal Gmail have a storage quota of 100 MB per site. Now this may seem less for many. However, considering the fact that embedded Google Documents, YouTube videos or other Google services don’t count against your storage quota, you’ll be getting a good deal. If you still want more, you can go for a site through Google Apps to get 10 GB per domain. If that isn’t enough, you have the Google Apps for Business option, which provides you with 10 GB plus 500 MB per paid user.

Myth #3) Google Sites Can’t Produce a Company Website

Just a peek into Google Sites’ landing page will disprove this myth. For starters, you will see that the service offers company intranet and project work site templates. Another factor which disproves this “fact” is the availability of Google Site’s services company-wide through Google Apps Premier Edition. With this plan, you will get:

* 10 GB of storage and 500 MB for each user account
* Sharing settings for managing Google Sites
* Easy publishing features
* Integration of Gmail with 25 GB e-mail storage per account
* Addition of Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Talk for easy collaboration

With so much to offer, how can Google Sites not be suitable for company websites?

Myth #4) Google Sites Has Limited Functionality

Because Google Sites doesn’t support CSS or JavaScript, many conclude that the service is limited. However, Google has always prided itself on having a unique architecture. Therefore, rather than supporting these conventional tools, it uses XML, RSS, JQuery, custom gadgets and 60 of its services including Google Apps Scripts, YouTube and Google Maps. That way your website can be highly interactive.

If you’re still feeling down about not being able to use JavaScript, there is a way out using Google Gadgets. Gadgets are applications written in XML, HTML and JavaScript. Developers create these using the Google Gadgets API. However, you’re welcome to use prebuilt gadgets from the Gadget Gallery. Some applications you may like are those displaying RSS feeds or the local weather. You can even customize the gadgets through the WYSIWYG editor without ever interacting with the code.

Myth #5) Google Sites Have a Bad Design

Web pages made with Google Sites usually look attractive since you get to choose from dozens of design themes, which include images, backgrounds and text styles.

Get to experience the simulated attacks in scenario specific situations such as at the front door, the kitchen, the car, etc.

SAFE International Kitchener Self Defense for high school students. SAFE International has become Canada’s most popular high school course for both boys and girls due to the fact that they are not teaching martial arts, but rather a practical approach to personal safety with an emphasis on detecting and defusing potentially dangerous situations.

Kevia Enters the Mission Main Street? Grants Competition in Hopes to Secure a $250,000 Award Renowned jewelry designer, Kevia Jeffrey-West, has become widely recognized for her unique interpretation of jewels inspired by her travels abroad, the power of history and the subtle magnetism of nature.

New York, NY, October 24, 2013 – Renowned jewelry designer, Kevia Jeffrey-West, has become widely recognized for her unique interpretation of jewels inspired by her travels abroad, the power of history and the subtle magnetism of nature. Channeling her inspirations, Kevia creates contemporary jewelry that is not only beautiful but sustainable as well. Her newest collection consists entirely of recycled metal findings, natural semi-precious gemstones, reclaimed wood and sustainably harvested horn, which is biodegradable. In an effort to preserve the magnificence of the great outdoors, from which she draws so many of her creative visions, Kevia takes the vow to be environmentally conscious one step further, giving back to both the earth and the community through various philanthropic initiatives.


With the purchase of each horn piece from the brand’s Nouveau Collection, a tree is planted in the US, having contributed to the planting of over 1,300 new trees to date across both urban and wilderness areas. Kevia also donates a portion of the proceeds from the newly introduced endangered species inspired collection to a variety of Nature Conservation efforts. In hopes of continuing to make a positive impact on the environment, increasing design capacity and implementing a new e-commerce marketing plan, Kevia has entered the Mission Main Street? Grants competition. Loyal customers and retailers alike look forward to a multitude of new collections from the beloved line each year, encouraging Jeffrey-West to take advantage of rare opportunities that will allow for a breadth of growth, development and expansion in her category.

Mission Main Street?

The twelve grant winners will be awarded $250,000 each to allocate into their businesses as they see fit.

Christina Moss Naturals Takes All Natural, Organic Skin & Hair Care Line With Anti-Aging Results Mainstream

Christina Moss, Amazon best selling fiction author, just launched a new company, Christina Moss Naturals, with a premier line of all natural, organic hair care and organic skin care products that she has spent 13 years developing.

Los Angeles, California, October 24, 2013 - Christina Moss Naturals has taken their All Natural, Organic Skin & Hair Care Line With Anit-Aging Results Mainstream. Christina Moss, Amazon best selling fiction author, just launched a new company, Christina Moss Naturals, with a premier line of all natural, organic hair care and organic skin care products that she has spent 13 years developing.

Is it possible to stop or even reverse aging, one might ask? Could it be the chemicals in our shampoo, soap and moisturizer that are contributing to rapidly aging skin? Some people think so, and Christina Moss is one of them. “Yes, I have seen dramatic improvements in skin and I’ve seen wrinkles diminish and tired skin refreshed without injections and facelifts. Results are fast and it is not expensive. It’s important to use products that don’t contain petro-chemicals, and there are a few additional beauty tips* that not many people know.”


When asked why a successful author would suddenly branch out into the land of organics, Moss responded, “Actually my career in the skin & hair care industry predates my first book by about ten years,” says Moss. “I first began making products for my family in 1999 because I was concerned with harmful ingredients like parabens, SLS and propylene glycol. My friends found out and I began taking product orders from them. Before I knew it, word spread and I had a cottage industry business. Christina Moss Naturals Corp is now a partnership, and I’m happy about that. I really don’t see any products out there that are as natural as mine. I feel I have a responsibility to make them available to more people. My business partner is of the same mind, and he’s totally behind the cause.”

The new business venture with partner, Kenny Davies, is called, Christina Moss Naturals Corp. The company debuts with a line of five basic products: shampoo, conditioner, facial wash, soap and facial moisturizer. The newly launched line is touted as petro-chemical free, fragrance free and preservative free, as well as suitable for all skin types AND babies too. “I wanted to put together a complete package of organic hair and skin products so that everyone, even babies, can get the best possible skin care, and because our products are concentrated, a little goes a long way. Everyone can enjoy the benefits of safe and natural ingredients and it’s still easy on the budget,” says Moss.

Protect Your Business with Google Apps Vault

Did you know that Google provides a backup and archiving tool for emails and chats? That tool is Google Apps Vault.

San Jose, CA, October 24, 2013 - Google Apps Vault (PDF) can help protect your business from legal and compliance risks. With Vault, you can be prepared to assess a legal matter or compliance issue in a timely, cost-effective way, with minimal disruption to your business.

Built on the Google Apps platform, it offers extended features, advanced functionality, and improved capabilities, such as domain-wide search of Gmail and on-the-record Gmail chat. This tool provides an easy way to create internal data management policies and automation to preserve and better protect an organization’s information assets. 


The cost of eDiscovery (producing and searching through employees email, chats and documents) can be a drain on your business. Producing records can cost up to $30K per GB. If you’re using Apps and you need an archiving or eDiscovery solution, Google Apps Vault is an obvious choice. All the data is managed on premises: no need to duplicate it and move it to a third party solution and take on the risks and hassles that go with that. Google Apps Vault is the most comprehensive and secure information governance, risk management and eDiscovery tool for Google Apps in the market.

Here are main features of Google Apps Vault which provides:
* Gmail Archiving
-No storage limit on archiving (Yes it breaks 25Gb cap)
* Gmail Retention
-No time limit on retention
* Gmail Legal Hold & Preservation
* Gmail Export
* Google Search Engine based eDiscovery
* Chat Archiving/Discovery (“on-the-record” chat)
* Vault will add additional Google data sources as well as features and functions in the future

Here are some of use cases.

A manufacturing company wants to protect themselves from former employees suing them for wrongful termination. Google Apps Vault helps them by establishing standard retention policies for terminated employee email-data and allows them to have fast, secure access should they need to search the email.

A technology-services company with an average employee turnover rate of sales consultants wants to be sure that outstanding client commitments are handed off properly if someone leaves the company. Google Apps Vault has an access policy that would enable a user with the correct privileges to hold the former employees email and chat data, and share just that data with a manager to determine what should be passed on to another employee.

The cost for Google Apps Vault is only $50/user/year for business users and $10/user/year for Non-Profit and Education organizations. Netkiller is the Top Vault partner on Google Apps Marketplace. and have helped hundreds of clients to protect their businesses.

SAFE International Launches New Peterborough Self Defense Website – Peterborough, ON Self Defense

SAFE International is launching its newly updated website for Peterborough Women’s Self Defense as well as their other course offerings.

Peterborough, ON, October 23, 2013 - (Straight Line PR) - Peterborough Self Defense, SAFE International Launches New Peterborough Women’s Self Defense Website.

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile women’s self defense training in Canada. SAFE International has taught more than 175,000 women since 1994. SAFE International is launching its newly updated website for Peterborough Women’s Self Defense as well as their other course offerings.

Among the SAFE International course offerings you will find on the new website are:
SAFE International Peterborough Women Self Defense Parties. Forget Tupperware Parties. Invite 6 to 8 of your friends for a few hours of fun, education and potentially life-saving instruction with one of their SAFE Women’s Self Defense Parties. Plan a meal, snacks, or dessert, and be prepared for a unique self defense experience! What has made them so popular is their unique method of teaching with humour and sharing of anecdotes. Get to experience the simulated attacks in scenario specific situations such as at the front door, the kitchen, the car, etc.

SAFE International Peterborough Self Defense for high school students. SAFE International has become Canada’s most popular high school course for both boys and girls due to the fact that they are not teaching martial arts, but rather a practical approach to personal safety with an emphasis on detecting and defusing potentially dangerous situations. All of our instructors are certified through SAFE International and have a unique ability to reach the students in an effective and memorable manner. SAFE International teaches approximately 13,000 students each year with a heavy presence teaching self defense in Peterborough, ON.

SAFE International offers Peterborough Corporate Self Defense Courses. This self-protection seminar will provide employees with tips and strategies to recognize and avoid personal security risks while on the job. Through the teaching of both verbal and non-verbal techniques, the participants will learn how to take common sense measures to reduce the risk of being a victim. The knowledge they gain from the seminar can be applied to all aspects of their profession – sales, interacting with customers, travel, and other work related transactions. There are many instances when one might find themself in an uncomfortable and potentially threatening situation – entertaining clients, traveling, leaving late at night by car, taxi, public transport, walking, etc.

Peterborough Self Defense for men is another course offering you will find on the new SAFE International website. Learn how to identify the most vulnerable areas of the body, and how to strike them in a quick, non-telegraphed manner. SAFE International instructors cover many devastating strikes such as eye rakes, palm strikes, elbows, knees, kicks plus how to attack other vulnerable areas of the body. A very popular concept taught at any Ottawa Self Defense course is, “The Shredder”, which can be best described as an extremely effective Close Quarter Concept that can be utilized in a wide range of low to potentially high level violent scenarios. The Shredder targets the most vulnerable areas of the attacker without having to memorize countless “techniques”. Another major benefit of the Shredder is that it does not require years to learn.  It is a concept of self defense that immediately disrupts the attacker’s ability to continue their attack, and allows the tables to be turned quickly and effectively in the victims favour.
