ZippyKid Changes the Managed WordPress Hosting Space – Again


San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) April 18, 2012

After analyzing more than 7,000 support requests, emails, and phone calls from the past year, it was clear that customers of WordPress hosts across the board needed a better way to manage their sites. The beta launch of MyZippyKid is up and ready to address those needs for agencies, developers, and small business owners.

MyZippyKids features span several previously unfulfilled needs, highlighted by the introduction of social sign-on. Social sign-on simplifies the traditional hosting sign up process, allowing users to start building WordPress sites with no more than their Facebook or Google account. With this, customers no longer need to pay for WordPress development environments. MyZippyKid allows customers to develop sites for free, with merely a Facebook or Google account, only seeking payment when theyre ready to take their site live.

Following in the steps of Github and other code repository sites, MyZippyKid allows multi-user collaboration as a way to accelerate website development and management. Collaboration through MyZippyKid provides the easiest way for programmers to work together on WordPress sites with the ease of an invite, side-stepping the hassle of hunting for FTP credentials and other technical jargon that programmers may request. Most importantly, for ZippyKid clients, this means never having to send sensitive information via email.

The introduction of ZippyClone provides a time saving alternative for clients who were forced to use the same base template to create multiple sites to suit specific verticals. ZippyClone allows customers to take any site on the ZippyKid system, tweak it, and launch as many copies as they want.

The WordPress community is driven by the ability to add complementary services and MyZippyKid takes that into consideration. With the click of a button, Add Ons in MyZippyKid make it simple to purchase, attach, and install complementary products such as SSL certificates, premium WordPress themes, domain names, and more.

The release of MyZippyKid comes on the heels of a new round of investment from prominent figures in the hosting community, who believe this will be the future of web hosting.

BLINQ Quartet (Brendan Reilly, Liane Carroll, Ian Shaw and Natalie Williams) feat. Gwilym Simcock, Support: The Ronnie Scotts All Stars
Event on 2013-05-22 00:00:00

Coming together to form a veritable jazz/soul vocal supergroup exclusive to Ronnie Scott’s – The pairing of two of the UK’s very finest jazz singer-pianists, Ian Shaw and Liane Carroll with top notch soul singers Brendan Reilly and Natalie Williams  – all 4 are individual headline performers in their own right. The band will be backed by 2011 Mercury Prize-nominee pianist Gwilym Simcock

Natalie Williams

“One of the UK’s hottest singers…she effortlessly moves from soul-diva to sensual and sophisticated jazz.”
Time Out

True artistry tends to sidestep the allure of celebrity in favour of championing itself as the sincere alternative; it’s behind the songs that tickle the emotions, whisper the deepest secrets and prove that the artist possesses a genius that’ll ensure they’re remembered as one of the shining lights of our era. This is the story of Natalie Williams – a Mobo nominated singer-songwriter whose accomplishments as one of the UK’s leading soul-jazz stars speak of a woman who understands how to combine her femininity and independence with a superior talent to create songs of love’s highs and woes that resonates with the soul.

Liane Carroll

Having been something of a stalwart of the British jazz scene for many years, Liane has in the last few years gone on to enjoy huge critical acclaim and is now considered by many to be one of the top jazz vocalists not just in the UK, but worldwide. 2009 has so far been an even busier year for Liane, and in May she released a new duo album featuring the acclaimed Scottish jazz pianist Brian Kellock.

Her eagerly awaited second solo album, 'Slow Down,' was released last year and has received superb reviews. In December, the album was picked by the Sunday Times as one of their top five jazz albums of the year. Liane appears here with her beloved trio: her husband, virtuoso bassist Roger Carey teams with drummer Mark Fletcher to create a superb rhythm section. “Close to musical perfection” Jazzwise , “World-class” John Fordham – The Guardian

Ian Shaw

BBC Award winning jazz singer, IAN SHAW returns to the club where, after hearing a recording, Ronnie Scott himself encouraged him to sing jazz. Shaw has appeared here regularly since the late eighties  "Quite simply, the best" (The Independent)

“Best Jazz Vocalist” at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2007 and 2004, Ian Shaw has already amassed a number of highly acclaimed albums and is a popular performer both in the UK and the US. An incredibly colourful character, he has been cited, along with Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling, as one of the world's finest male jazz vocalists.

Fitness Boot Camp: Effective Core Training Exercises

New York, NY (PRWEB) February 23, 2012

You may think that the military isn’t for you, but if you want to act on your New Year’s resolution and get in shape, the military may be your only hope. After you ring in 2012, commit yourself to a life as a marine with a military-style workout that will send you on your way to developing your own intense workout regimen with tips for effective core training.

At Pure Power Boot Camp, there is a dedicated soldier inside of everyone, and whether you are looking to get in shape or build more muscle in the upcoming year, focusing on effective core training is key for developing a well-balanced and sculpted physique. Building a strong core can help to reduce back pain, improve posture imbalances and enhance athletic performance for better health and productivity.

Your core’s primary goal is to provide a stable platform which launches all of our movement by stabilizing the spine. The core also generates the rotational force needed for many athletic movements including throwing, swinging, striking and twisting. It is important to realize that you are only as strong as your core, and a weak core limits your strength capacity. Therefore, a great way to strengthen your core is to practice the right exercises and Pure Power Boot Camp recommends the most effective workout you can try at home.

Plank Exercise

Start this exercise with your forearms and toes on the floor while keeping your torso straight and rigid facing your body downwards. Your body should be in a straight line from ears to toes with no sagging or bending, and your head should be relaxed while looking at the floor. Slowly raise one leg five to eight inches off the floor and count to five while lifting and lowering your leg. Switch legs and do two to three set of ten reps as desired.

Basic Push Up

The basic push-up is simple and very effective for strengthening your upper body and core strength. When practiced properly, this technique can be used to strengthen muscles in the chest, shoulders, triceps, back abdominals and the legs. Start this position by getting on the floor and positioning your hands slightly wider than your shoulders. Raise up onto your toes and be sure to keep your body in a straight line from head-to-toe without sagging or arching your back. Contract your abs and tighten your core by pulling your belly button toward your spine. While keeping a tight core, inhale as you slowly bend your elbows and lower yourself until your elbows are at a 90-degree angle. Repeat this procedure for as many repetitions as desired.

Oblique Lunge and Twist

This exercise builds lower body strength and performing a walking lunge with alternate twisting from right to left engages the quads, glutes and core while improving balance and proprioception, the reception of stimuli produced within your body. Begin this exercise by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart with your hands at your side. Step forward with your left foot into a lunge position and twist your upper body to the left from your torso, stretching your arms out to the left. Maintain a slow, controlled movement and slowly move your arms to the center and step forward with the opposite foot and twist to the other side. Continue the movement for about ten steps. Complete two steps and repeat as desired.

Bright Medical Promotes FSAs for Cost Savings on Incontinence Products


(PRWEB) March 06, 2012

As a major provider of medical supplies, Bright Medical wants to educate the public about the advantages of using Flexible Spending Accounts for the purchase of incontinence products. Incontinence is a common problem for many adults, men and women alike. Bright Medical believes that FSAs offer a convenient way for incontinent adults to save money on the supplies they need to in order to live healthy and productive lives.

FSAs, offered through most employer-based health insurance programs by way of cafeteria plans, make it possible for employeesand their elderly dependentsto pay for certain medical expenses not covered by insurance, using pre-tax dollars. These medical expenses include products like disposable adult diapers and adult cloth diapers. While not available through Medicare, FSAs are offered by most Medicare supplement providers and Medigap plans. Today, moreover, FSA debit cards make it easy to withdraw money from FSA accounts to pay for these medical supplies.

The drawback of an FSA is that it runs out at the end of the year, and that whatever the insured party has not used will disappear. Many people do not realize, however, that its possible to pay for over-the-counter (OTC) medical items such as incontinence supplies with FSAs. This means that the use it or lose it provision can be easily side-stepped by stocking up on much-needed non-perishable medical supplies. This is especially fortuitous for those who use incontinence products on a daily basis.

Incontinence is a problem for many adults, not just the old and infirm. Many active men and women have this condition, andthanks to a wide range of excellent productsthey need not live in fear of leakage or embarrassing accidents. Similarly, those who are elderly or frail can look to products like Medlines Molicare diapers or Molicare Super Plus briefs for their daily hygiene and comfort.

Urinary Incontinence (UI) is defined as the inability to control urination, or the accidental leakage of urine. Though it affects people of all ages and genders, women are twice as likely as men to develop this condition. There are four basic types of incontinence: 1) stress incontinence, which occurs during coughing, sneezing, laughing, or lifting heavy objects, 2) urge incontinence, which is characterized by a sudden urge to urinate while sleeping, drinking water, or listening to running water, 3) overflow incontinence, which occurs when the bladder, constantly full, overflows and leaks urine, and 4) functional incontinence, which results from disabilities that prevent a person from getting to a bathroom to urinate. Another variety, overactive bladder, is a condition in which the bladder squeezes at the wrong time.

At different ages, men and women have different risks for developing UI. In childhood, girls develop bladder control earlier than boys. However, as adults, women are far more likely than men to experience UI. This is due to several things: the anatomical structure of the female pelvic area, changes brought on by pregnancy and childbirth, and the hormonal changes of menopause. Recent studies have even suggested a possible link between caffeine, menopause, and incontinence.

For men, the prevalence of incontinence increases with age, but it is not an inevitable part of the aging process. UI can be caused, in men, by the enlargement of the prostate gland. This rarely occurs before age 40; but more than half of men in their sixties, and up to 90 percent of men in their seventies and eighties, experience some lower urinary tract symptoms.

For both men and women, anything that damages the nerves can cause urination problems. Diseases that affect the brain and nervous system, such as stroke, Parkinsons, multiple sclerosis, or diabetes can cause bladder problemsas can spinal cord injury.

While urinary incontinence is widespread, there are a number of high quality incontinence supplies available today. Bright Medical carries a full range of these products, and offers top brands at discount prices. In conjunction with these value-conscious prices, Bright Medical urges its customers to maximize their savings by using FSAs.

One customer recently exclaimed, I could kick myself for all the money I could have saved on taxes if Id known about FSAs earlier! Im so glad you told me!

Bright Medical stores a massive collection of top quality medical supplies that are sold online to customers across the country. Most of the products are available at a discount. Popular categories include incontinence supplies, wound care products, wheelchairs, bathroom safety assists, enteral feeding, enema bags,exam table paper rolls,patient lifts, surgical supplies,exam gloves and blood pressure monitors.

FaceForum.com Reflects on Emmy Awards, SPCP Report to Give Real People Reason to Consider Permanent Makeup


Park City, UT (PRWEB) February 22, 2012

The Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals says a secret weapon called permanent makeup has made the lives and looks of celebrities easier to manage. The SPCP reports that Wynonna Judd, Raquel Welch and Dolly Parton (among others) have all benefited from the procedure, which is known by many names.

That, in combination with the recent Emmy Awards, has caused FaceForum.com to address the topic of permanent makeup a.k.a. micropigmentation, permanent cosmetics or cosmetic tattooing. In a free online article, the site gives real people (a.k.a. non-celebrities) reason to consider how it can benefit them.

While we jokingly start off by describing the messy-morning-after look many women face as they stand in front of their bathroom mirrors, explains Shawn Miele for FaceForum.com, there are a wide range of other reasons to consider permanent makeup. Coverage for scar tissue on the face or breasts is just one of them.

According to FaceForum.com, micropigmentation services are now offered at day spas, clinics and plastic surgery offices nationwide. Beyond bringing color to the eyes, cheeks and lips, the procedure offers cosmetic camouflage benefits which minimize the emotional scars patients in recovery from breast reconstruction and other surgeries struggle with.

During micropigmentation, or the permanent makeup, process, says Miele, organic pigment is deposited below the skins surface. That color then lasts and lasts. Its like facial tattooing with a super slender needle. Practitioners use fine punctures to push the pigment into place wherever it will most benefit their clients.

The SPCP confirms that permanent makeup can be used in a myriad of ways. It can lift the burden of drawing on eye brows for older patients whose eye sight may be failing and hands are less steady than they were in their youth. It can correct facial scars caused by dog bites which might otherwise make a person highly self-conscious.

Permanent makeup has also helped women (and men) side step the ritual task of spending time, money and energy on topical products cosmetics purchased and applied on a regular basis only to smear, fade or get washed away during the day.

Cosmetic makeup options include permanent eyeliner, eye brows, lip color, full face application and more. Yet, unlike topical products or temporary beauty agents like Botox
