Blog Beast Has Launched From Empower Network

For the last 23 months Empower Networks marketing system has paid out over 70 Million in 100% commissions and has taught people how to market online.

Eagan, MN, September 26, 2013 - Blog Beast Has Launched From Empower Network. For the last 23 months Empower Networks marketing system has paid out over 70 Million in 100% commissions and has taught people how to market online.  The Alexa ranking for Empower Network is top 258  in the world and top 81 sites in the USA Nilsson says.

One of the highlights of Blog Beast is its mobile app, which syncs the computer and smartphone blogging systems in new ways. In the past, other blog platforms have released mobile apps that were watered down and not as feature-rich. Blog Beast will truly bring the same experience users enjoy on the Web to their mobiles.

Empower Network’s new system allows users to maintain multiple blogs among multiple domains from one account and one login.

It is faster, easier to use and a better design than the original version, as well as other blogging platforms.

It all comes down to a marketing system that any person and business can use to get more internet traffic to their websites. Blog Beast solves this big problem Nilsson says.

Nilsson says, After intentionally staying on the fringe of the Home Business/Network Marketing Industry for a dozen years, the careful evaluation and due diligence of a dozen different top internet marketing systems, it was obvious that Empower Network and Blog Beast ENV2 had the perfect combination of product, leadership, training and appropriate market timing. It’s very rare to have all of these elements come together in one powerful structure all at the same time. Together we can make a huge and important difference in people’s lives.

Colorado HealthOP Turns Health Insurance Upside Down with Focus on Choice and Prevention, Not Profits

New Health Insurance CO-OP Announces Five Progressive Programs that Give Coloradans More Control Over Their Medical Costs and Care

Denver, CO, September 25, 2013 — Colorado HealthOP, Colorado’s first statewide non-profit health insurance cooperative (CO-OP), announced today that it will offer five progressive programs designed to give consumers more choice in their healthcare, help them stay healthier and ultimately reduce their healthcare spending.

“Because Colorado HealthOP reports to members, not shareholders, investing in members’ long-term health – not short-term profits – is a priority,” said Jack Westfall, MD, chief medical officer of Colorado HealthOP. “By investing in preventive care and giving members more choices, we will not only improve members’ health, but also hope to save them more money now and in the future.”

Colorado HealthOP’s five programs emphasize preventive care and encourage members to make choices that help them get healthy, stay healthy, and save money.

1. Rewards Members for Staying Healthy
Under most of Colorado HealthOP’s health insurance plans, when members take three health actions each, they will:
* Pay less out-of-pocket when they visit the doctor.
* Earn money on a debit card to use to pay for healthcare expenses.

2. Partners With Doctors that Cost Less
Colorado HealthOP members have two ways of saving money when they go to the doctor.
* Members can choose a plan with a more limited network that costs less.
* Colorado HealthOP has partnered with doctors who believe in the CO-OP’s mission. When members go to these doctors, they often pay less.

3. Helps Children Remain Cavity Free at Three
Tooth decay is the most common chronic disease in young children, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Yet the majority of health plans do not cover infant and toddler oral care provided by a primary care physician. Colorado HealthOP will pay for covered children to receive four oral health visits, including preventive fluoride varnish, between the ages of 6 months and 4 years from their primary care provider. The CO-OP is partnering with Cavity Free at Three, a program of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, to train primary care physicians to provide dental care for infants.

4. Covers Home Blood Pressure Monitoring at 100 Percent
The American Heart Association recommends home monitoring for anyone with high blood pressure. When people measure their blood pressure at home several times a week and report it to their doctors online, doctors see a more accurate picture of health and can more quickly respond to issues, helping people with high blood pressure better manage their condition. Colorado HealthOP will cover 100 percent of the costs associated with home monitoring for its members with high blood pressure. And finally Colorado HealthOP will pay primary care providers an annual fee to cover home blood pressure management.

5. Gives Members the Tools to Price Shop
While most people compare prices when purchasing almost anything, few price shop when seeking medical care. To help its members compare costs prior to seeking medical care, Colorado HealthOP will provide pricing and quality ratings for local providers of surgery, medical tests and other common procedures.

“Colorado HealthOP is not just a health insurance company; we partner with our members and their providers,” said Dr. Westfall. “We believe that the role of health insurance extends beyond covering people when they’re sick or injured; we want to support our members’ health, nutrition and fitness, and help them be more informed consumers of healthcare services.”

Ecotech Institute’s Energy Efficiency Program Now Provides Building Performance Institute (BPI) Certification

In 2014, Ecotech Institute will also add a new energy efficiency lab to help students prepare for certification

Denver, Colorado, September 24, 2013 – Ecotech Institute, the only college entirely focused on renewable energy training, now provides students in Ecotech Institute’s Energy Efficiency degree program the opportunity to earn Building Performance Institute (BPI) Certification. BPI sets the national standards for energy efficiency retrofits and professional credentials. Many state-run energy efficiency and weatherization programs require BPI certifications.

Interest in energy efficiency continues to grow in all sectors of the economy, as both homeowners and businesses look for ways to control rising energy costs.

“As more people seek ways to improve their energy efficiency, individuals with deep knowledge in renewable energy systems are becoming a valuable asset in businesses,” said Tiffany Burton, program director for Ecotech’s Energy Efficiency program. “Ecotech has asked employers what skills they desire in employees and we often hear that people with BPI Certification is key; that’s why our curriculum now includes that critical designation.”

Starting in 2014, Ecotech Institute Energy Efficiency students will also be able to use a new on-site energy efficiency lab that will help prepare students for BPI certification.

“Our new lab will once again set Ecotech apart from other institutions that don’t specialize in renewable energy and energy efficiency education,” added Burton. “Having this equipment on campus will be a terrific asset for our students.”

Facility Management is another program at Ecotech Institute where energy efficiency is becoming more important. Now, more than ever, the role of a facilities manager involves developing and implementing plans that incorporate energy efficiency into buildings, drastically changing how they are managed on a daily basis. People who work as facilities managers plan, manage and optimize critical facility operations and maintenance for a variety of buildings, grounds and equipment, and Ecotech Institute is educating future facilities managers on how to keep energy conservation top of mind.

According to Ecotech Institute’s Clean Jobs Index, in August 2013 there were more than 5,100 jobs posted in the U.S. related to facilities management energy efficiency. To see open positions in each state, visit A sample of possible facilities management jobs that graduates of this program could be qualified for include: energy manager, facilities manager, maintenance supervisor, grounds and plant manager. Energy efficiency jobs include work on building retrofits, home weatherization, lighting upgrades and grid infrastructure.

Ecotech Institute, based in Aurora, Colo., now has more than 500 students who came to Ecotech Institute from across the country for practical training in the growing field of sustainability. In addition to the Facility Management Technology and Energy Efficiency programs, Ecotech Institute currently offers the following six associate degree programs:
