Grant Funding Available “Feed More Kids”

Torrance, CA (PRWEB) February 10, 2009

The board of directors at Food Service Solutions, the industry leader in lunchroom POS technology, answered the demand of school districts nationwide to increase the “Feed More Kids” grant funding. This will open the door to even more schools across the country who dream of maximizing funding from their free and reduced lunch program running an automated point-of-purchase system.

Struggling School Districts are capitalizing on software that helps to improve their means of identifying poor students, while protecting their privacy. This is enabling districts to establish accurate accounting records in order to qualify for maximum state and federal public school funding and charter school funding.

Recent studies have shown that schools suffer from insufficient funding when they fail to qualify every student who is entitled to a free and reduced lunch at the school cafeteria. With this new system in place, administrators and parents can also keep track of balances and student eating habits.

Sometimes, with older accounting systems, the truth is plain as day and unintentionally segregates poor school children from the throng. Rather than pay with cash, students eligible for free and reduced lunch are issued vouchers or ID cards that, when presented at meal time, immediately identified their economic status. The embarrassment causes some students to do without food rather than be seen as less fortunate.

The older accounting system was not user-friendly either. School officials could not see personal account balances as each student went through the line as they can with the new biometric technology. Instead, to check balances, administrators would have to print out an entire list of lunch accounts at the end of the day.

Also, while the card-carrying system kept the background of each student confidential, it created other problems. On days when they did not intend to eat lunch, some students would loan their cards to friends. As a result, cards were often lost or stolen and replacing them created more work for already busy school officials.

The FSS biometric technology system that helps increase public school funding and charter school funding has succeeded, in part, because it makes laborious – and sometimes ineffective – administrative tasks so much easier. The new system also makes it easier for student and staff customers to pre-pay for meals. The system offers a good way of tracking that money. Parents can go online, via the MySchoolAccount.com feature and see when their child has eaten, and if they have money in their account. If there’s a question, they can print out an accurate statement to clarify.

In addition to ensuring a greater share of public school funding and charter school funding, this new technology speeds up the verification process of all registered students so that food service lines move faster as well as eliminates the social stigma sometimes associated with free and reduced lunch qualification. Also, since there is no need to carry cash for payment – students can pre-pay meals – no student stands out as either eligible for free and reduced lunch or not.

YBIKE – A Gem in Child Development Now Available at Fat Brain Toys


Elkhorn, NE (PRWEB) May 7, 2010

Developed and designed in South Africa, the YBIKE has taken the Eastern Hemisphere by storm and is stirring up action in the United States as well. Fat Brain Toys, the leading online retailer of specialty toys, searches the world to bring rare and innovative toys to children. YBIKE shines within their collection of toys valuable in child development.

The new childrens bike design YBIKE makes its debut this spring. YBIKE and its sibling, YBIKE Extreme, have proven to increase the rate growth in childrens physical development and enhance acquisition of essential mobility skills. Ingenious YBIKE makes learning to ride a bike effortless for children as young as 2 years.

A research study from the Stellenbosch University Department of Sports Science in South Africa found that children who had opportunity to play on YBIKES for 20-30 minutes twice a week, performed significantly better in tasks requiring both dynamic and static balance and leg coordination.

Play on YBIKES has been noted for widely increased abilities in mastery of balance beams and climbing a jungle gym.

New YBIKE Ensures:

Growth of motor skills & sensory integration
Improved confidence
Safety & protection from injury
Practical, genius construction

Growth of Motor Skills & Sensory Integration

Created to help a childs balance & coordination skills progress naturally, the design of YBIKE maximizes gross motor development. Seating is farther forward than on traditional bikes so kids can freely extend their leg stride. And there are no pedals. Kids practice uninhibited, bilateral, coordination of movement as they propel themselves along. YBIKES wide seat encourages independent balance, yet its compelling two-wheel design offers significant challenge in maintaining that balance. Absence of pedals and brakes means kids rely on their own footwork; motor skills improve quickly and effortlessly. Additionally, the YBIKE offers sensory integration experiences refining neurological processes and body awareness (sense of touch, sense of balance -vestibular, and sense of where the body and its parts are in space proprioceptive) through meaningful play.

Improved Confidence

In a split second they are off, with feet skimming along the ground, trotting while they sit perched on the YBIKES comfortable design. Their balance is aided by a wide seat, stable wheels. Mobility improves rapidly with no pedals present to trip them up! Look Mom, Im riding my bike!

Safety & Protection from Injury

YBIKES front wheel is designed for wide turns so the occasional tip-over is nonexistent. High body provides clearance of obstacles. Large wheels absorb impact making a safer, smoother ride even on rough, uneven surfaces. Seating is way forward in placement on YBIKES and the back wheel is covered, so that kids can freely extend their leg stride as long as they like without any risk of injury from wheels.

Practical, Genius Construction

Looks smart, high quality, and its also tough! Injection molded construction eliminates weak points and provides sleek curves. Superior, brilliant finish. Lightweight yet sturdy, kids can maneuver YBIKES easily. Two size options just right for children. Quiet inside and outside. Tread does not readily pick up rocks and debris from outside when the bikes are brought in for play! Durable to last for years of play.

We were impressed with YBIKE and feel our customers will be as well. In terms of aiding in child development, research has already proven its merit. From a design standpoint, the YBIKE is a true gem. As for being well-received by kids were confident it is right on target with their spirit of adventure. Mark Carson, President of Fat Brain Toys.

YBIKE and YBIKE Extreme are now available in the United States at http://www.FatBrainToys.com

CLONING CHRIST by Peter Thomas Senese Now Exclusively Available on Amazon’s Kindle


New York & Los Angeles (PRWEB) December 16, 2011

CLONING CHRIST author Peter Thomas Senese’s electrifying best-selling theological thriller is now available in E-book format, including Amazon’s Kindle.

Peter Thomas Senese’s theological thrill ride, darting from Israel through Europe to the United States, focuses on Dr. Max Train, a leading genetic scientist from Syracuse, New York. Max was once a devout believer in God, but now lives a faithless life following the brutal slaying of his beloved wife and four year old autistic daughter twelve years ago.

After the widely publicized trial during which Max is rightfully found innocent of his family’s murder pinned on him by corrupt dark forces, Max vacations in Israel. During an earthquake outside of Jerusalem, he discovers what appears to be the True Cross Jesus of Nazareth was crucified on nearly two thousand years ago.

Max may hold the fate of Mankind in his hands. If this is the True Cross and Christ was cloned from the remaining blood stains and hair remnants on the cross, would government and religion become obsolete upon His Second Coming? If the blood stains and hair are those of Jesus, then what does this say about the long held belief Christ rose whole and entire upon his resurrection? Where would the battle lines be drawn between the advances in science and the beliefs of religion? What effect would this knowledge have on one’s faith and beliefs? Soon after, and in the hallowed halls of the Vatican a righteous Cardinal, Anselm Mugant, hears of the discovery in Jerusalem. Without the Pope’s knowledge and in clear opposition to all Catholic teaching, the wayward prelate will stop at nothing – even murder – in his bid to prevent human cloning from taking place, including his misconceived belief Max Train has intent to clone the possible body of Christ.

Mugant soon enlists the services of the internationally rumored assassin known simply as The Scorpion to track down Max and silence him with death. The Scorpion, a onetime penitent of the Cardinal, is a force of pure evil and who challenges life. He forces this same challenge onto Max as he casts a deadly shadow over his praised soul and every move he makes.

Adding intricate subterfuge to the plot is the existence of Mugant’s “Fifth Crusade”, five international industrialists with great power and reach devout in the Cardinal’s perspective on human genetic science, and controlled by Mugant’s knowledge of their deepest secrets. Together, Mugant launches an all-out attack to find the ancient artifacts in Train’s possession, and prevent the genetic scientist from doing the unthinkable in his eyes – announcing to the world a cross containing bodily remnants could indeed by the True Cross of Jesus of Nazareth – and clone the body of Christ!

Cloning Christ spins a tangled and intricate web of deceit, blackmail, violence, loss, faith, forgiveness, truth and acceptance in a story that questions the right to clone, while responding to the needs and harsh realities of life as we know it. Cloning Christ is the story of life and the sacredness of it, as shared in the novel that leaves you racing to turn the page.

Top Amazon book critic Harriett Klausner commented, “Fans will relish this thriller. The tale is loaded with action yet uses the characters as symbols of mankind similar to a medieval passion play like Everyman. The cast represents the faithful, the disbelievers, the dividers (torn between science and religion) or the selfish. “Cloning Christ” brings the debate of religion vs. science to the forefront in an exciting manner that focuses on the sacredness of life.”

Mr. Senese commented, “Cloning Christ is an absolute theological thriller that takes the reader directly to the question, ‘How would you clone Jesus of Nazareth – The Christ’? In my interpretation of that question, my answer is to follow His teachings – and that is to act best I can in kindness towards others while also being mindful not to be taken adavantage of in such acts. Still … writing and creating this story was at times joyful because it allowed me to think about many issues that brought me closer to my own faith. I am very pleased to know that years after its initial release, and with some very interesting things on the horizon for this story, readers everywhere will have access to this thoughtful and provocative story via e-book.”

Peter Thomas Senese is a storyteller focusing on messages in all formats that bespeak global connectivity. He is actively involved in supporting issues that impact the lives of children, including demonstrative support to keep our nation’s public libraries properly funded and open seven days a week; and, actively engaged in numerous and extensive activities surrounding international child abduction prevention; and, actively advocating for new legislation that will protect children and others from malicious online impersonation.

100% of the author’s royalties earned from e-book sales of Cloning Christ will be donated to the I CARE Foundation.

Mr. Senese’s other noteworthy novels include The Den of the Assassin, and, Chasing The Cyclone. For more information on Peter Thomas Senese, please visit the official website of Peter Thomas Senese to read more about Peter’s writing and advocacy work.

(PRWEB) December 24, 2011

Is it possible to Clone Christ?

Montpelier, VT (PRWEB) April 22, 2012

ORS Racks Direct, a leading retailer and distributor of vehicle gear and equipment transport solutions throughout the United States, and Yakima Racks, a world recognized brand and manufacturer of premium vehicle rack systems and accessories, announce their latest partnership to deliver, market and sell the all-new DoubleDown Ace series of trailer hitch mount bike racks. Based on the original, classic series of DoubleDown models, the latest generation ‘Ace’ delivers significant enhancements, including hitch lock for theft prevention, SpeedKnob mechanism for quickly installing the carrier on any 1-1/4 inch or 2 inch hitches, and a silver powder-coat finish for remarkable design styling. The three models currently available are the 8002452 Yakima Double Down Ace 5, 8002451 Yakima Double Down Ace 4 and the 8002450 Yakima Double Down Ace 2 hitch bike racks.

“There is no doubt the trailer hitch mount bicycle carrier market is the hottest growth category in the vehicle gear and equipment transport solutions industry. More difficult to determine is the cause and effect for such explosive growth.”, remarks Catherine Case, ORS Racks Direct Consumer Relations and Sales Coordinator, “Is it due to general consumer interest in bicycling and easy loading bicycle transport options? Or are the new innovations and advancements built into the products responsible for the rapidly expanding sales in the hitch bike racks category? What we do know, however, is that the Yakima DoubleDown Ace hitch bike rack series delivers the answers our customers are looking for in quality, durability, ease of use, and affordability.”

The 8002452 Yakima DoubleDown Ace 5 bike hitch rack ( http://www.orsracksdirect.com/yakima-doubledown-ace-5-hitch-bike-rack.html ), features five bicycle transport capacity and fits both 2″ and 1.25″ trailer hitch receivers. This is a unique feature in the 5 bike hitch rack category, as virtually all other models from competitors are compatible with 2 inch trailer hitches only. The Yakima Double Down Ace 5 includes best-in-class, proprietary SwingBlade cradles and anti-sway cages that work together to deliver unsurpassed protective cushioning, stability and elimination of bike to bike contact or possible swinging of the bicycles into the back of the car.

The 8002451 Yakima DoubleDown Ace 4 bike hitch rack ( http://www.orsracksdirect.com/yakima-doubledown-ace-4-hitch-bike-rack.html ), also fits both 1-1/4″ and 2″ hitches. Offers four bicycle transport capacity, the most popular choice in rear mount carriers and ideal when bringing along all the bikes for a family of four. The included hitch lock security mechanism is an excellent, value-added component that provides security and peace of mind that the carrier can’t be removed when left unattended. The hitch lock is included with all Ace models. Not included, but recommended for additional security, is the Yakima ArmLock bike cable lock. This optional accessory locks all the bikes to the carrier.

The 8002450 Yakima DoubleDown Ace 2 bike hitch rack ( http://www.orsracksdirect.com/yakima-doubledown-ace-2-hitch-bike-rack.html ), delivers two bicycle capacity and includes all the same premium features found on the other Double Down Ace models. The proprietary SpeedKnob dial enables the carrier to mount quickly to any 2″ or 1-1/4″ trailer hitch receiver without the use of any additional tools. The legendary TriggerFinger lever is also incorporated into the carrier, enabling the bike cradle arms to fold down when not needed. The entire hitch rack mast also tilts down and out of the way for convenient access to the back of the car. All ‘Ace’ models include the SpeedKnob and TriggerFinger components, as well as tilt-down capability.

Alzheimers Dementia Training for Emergency Personnel available on DVD


Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) December 05, 2012

In an effort to improve emergency services for people with dementia, Pines Education Institute of Southwest Florida, the educational arm of the not-for-profit Pines of Sarasota, released a hands-on training DVD for law enforcement officers, fire fighters, EMTs, 911 Dispatchers and emergency room personnel.

Hosted by nationally renowned dementia caregiving expert Teepa Snow, MS. OTR/L, FAOTA, this 105 minute long training program educates emergency personnel about the basics of dementia. Viewers learn how to best communicate with someone with the disease, how to increase cooperation and best help in cases of abuse, neglect, fraud, theft, wandering, elopement, and medical emergencies.

Not being able to recognize symptoms of dementia and knowing how to interact with a person with the disease easily leads to misunderstandings that could be considered a threat by an unknowing police officer, JoAnn Westbrook, Director of Education at the geriatric-oriented Pines Education Institute of S.W. explains.

Law enforcement officers are expected to Serve and Protect people in the community, but they also need to protect themselves. Learning about this disease will positively impact all parties, emergency personnel as well as civilians Mrs. Westbrook further explains. Emergency responders are doing a fantastic job safeguarding our communities, and it is vital that they receive our support in return.
