New Website Offers Resources Based On Courageous The New Movie Centered On Fathers


Vista, CA (PRWEB) October 18, 2011

To accompany the release of the new movie, Courageous, Outreach Inc. is offering a resource website with a collection of products inspired by Courageous that churches and the public can use to help share the principles of the movie with their congregations’ families and fathers.

Courageous, the fourth release of Sherwood Pictures, the moviemaking ministry of Sherwood Church in Albany, Georgia, has already seen box-office success. The movie joins Fireproof, Facing the Giants and Flywheel as entertaining cinematic productions that impact lives through heartfelt stories of faith and hope.

The movie journeys into the lives of four law enforcement officers. When tragedy hits each of the four, the men are left wrestling with their hopes, fears and faith as well as their fathering. The movie realistically depicts the issues related to families who live without a courageous father. According to All Pro Dad, in the United States over 36% of all children (24.7 million) live without their biological fathers. The negative impact of a fathers absence can be seen in education, suicide and behavior studies. A child from a fatherless home is 9 times more likely to drop out of high school as 71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes as cited in the National Principals Report on the State of High Schools. According to the U.S. D.H.H.S. Bureau of the Census 63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes. And a recent Center for Disease Control report reveals that 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.

Working with several of the official Courageous product partners, including B&H Publishing, LifeWay Christian Resources, and DaySpring, Outreach, Inc. has launched CourageousResolutionCertificate.com a website dedicated to Courageous-inspired products including two books titled, The Resolution for Men and The Resolution for Women. The Resolution for Men was written by Alex and Stephen Kendrick, the same writers responsible for the New York Times best seller The Love Dare book that was inspired by their screenwriting for Fireproof. Priscilla Shirer is the author of The Resolution for Women, adding the book to her long list of successful books aimed at helping women.

The site also offers replica prints of The Resolution document seen in the movie being signed by the main character, Adam Mitchell portrayed by Alex Kendrick is also available for men to sign for their families. The website also provides background information on the books, sample chapters and details about the Courageous commemorative certificate. Through the website visitors can also learn more about the movie, view trailers and the read biographies for the authors behind the Resolution books.

San Francisco based Heath-Newton Describes the Benefits of a No Contest Divorce

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 04, 2012

The law firm explains that the end of a partnership or marriage does not always signal acrimony. For those who are separating without such feelings, a no contest divorce, or uncontested divorce offers a host of benefits among them are speed, cost, and flexibility, according to the firm spokesman.

California is no-fault divorce state. That means that in California it doesnt matter who wants the divorce or why if either party wants a divorce, they can have it. Long gone are the days of proving infidelity to get a divorce. The upshot is that in California a no-contest divorce is simply a divorce in which the parties work out the terms of their divorce without appearing in court.

There are varying levels of agreement. Sometimes the parties know exactly how they want to divide assets and arrange child custody before they ever speak with an attorney. Other parties cant agree on anything at first, but with the help of their attorneys theyre able to work out a deal. Sometimes the process takes days; other times it takes months. Sometimes the parties mediate; sometimes they work it out at a coffee shop. Either way, in an uncontested divorce, the parties stay out of court.

Uncontested divorces are cheaper, according to a spokesman for Heath-Newton. “Youve heard the joke that the quickest way to get a million dollars is to start with $ 10 million, and get a divorce $ 8 Million goes to the attorneys, and you and your ex split the rest. Those numbers arent far from the mark. There are few things more expensive (and less satisfying) in this world than divorce litigation. Take our advice on this one: avoid divorce litigation if you can settle out of court! The quicker you can reach agreement with your ex, the less you will spend on the process,” the firm adds.

Speed, of course is the second benefit of a no contest divorce, according to the law firm. “There is nothing fast about the California court system, and the family courts are arguably the slowest of the bunch. Theyre underfunded, under-motivated, and overworked. They dont really care about your divorce, and they have no incentive to move quickly. If you want speedy resolution, dont litigate mediate. The divorce process can be done in as much time as it takes you to reach a deal with your spouse. Settlement is the best way to reach a quick and fair result,” states Heath-Newton.

Heath-Newton explains that the third main benefit of the no contest divorce is flexibility. “Judges dont know anything about your life so they cant make orders that truly benefit you. Courts follow the law the law is the opposite of flexible. Youre not going to get custom tailored divorce agreements from overworked judges. Youre going to get well meaning, but cookie cutter resolutions that follow the law to the letter. On the flip side, if you and your spouse reach an agreement on your own, the court is happy to turn your personal agreement into an order. Youll need to follow certain formalities, but those are the easy part pay a lawyer to handle those for your and youre saving a bundle as compared to the alternative. You can be as creative and flexible as you want with your personal agreement. You want to keep the coin collection and give her the shotguns? Go for it. Nobody cares how you divide your assets unless you take the issue to the court.,” adds the law firm.

According to Heath-Newton, a less frequently discussed benefit of the uncontested divorce process is that it allows parties to remain on healthier terms than litigation. The litigation process is emotionally draining and simply stated it makes people angry. A no contest divorce process can take any form a couple wants. Many couples include therapists in the process in order to ease the transition out of the relationship. Uncontested divorces are easier on the soul, according to the firm.

Heath-Newton says they help clients navigate uncontested divorces of every kind. They believe that its ultimately better for couples to avoid litigation, and so they support clients in that process.

About the company:

At Heath-Newton LLP, they specialize in family law, asset protection and estate planning services. Based in San Francisco, their boutique firm has earned a reputation for managing their clients cases well, reaching successful resolutions and minimizing costs and disruption to their clients lives.

They have handled a long list of family-law cases, including a broad range of issues facing new families (such as domestic partnerships, premarital agreements, adoption and more), as well as divorce, asset division, child custody and child and spouse support. They also have extensive experience in estate planning, wills, probate, mediation, living wills and trusts.

Collectively, their attorneys have thousands of hours of experience, allowing them to be both efficient and effective. They are guided by a practical approach that emphasizes avoiding litigation to minimize costs and disruption; however, they can and will be fierce litigators when all other strategies have proven ineffective.

HIGH ACCURACY LOCATION BASED SERVICES BOOSTED BY NEW SINGAPORE TRIAL

(PRWEB) November 27, 2002

PLANS to launch wireless high accuracy location-based services for the rapidly expanding Asia Pacific GSM market have taken a major step forward following successful initial trials in Singapore.

The trial, the most extensive of its kind in the Asia Pacific region, is supported by the Singapore Government through the Infocomm Development Authority’s (IDA) “Wired With Wireless” programme. In particular, the IDA seeks to develop and encourage new wireless technologies and applications in Singapore and the region via the Pilots & Trials Hotspots (PATH) scheme under the programme.

A key aim is to highlight how location technologies like E-OTD (Enhanced Observed Time Difference) can deliver far higher accuracy than Cell-ID-based systems, currently in use in the region, and support a broader range of applications.

Users tested a range of innovative applications – including buddy-finder, points of interest services, fleet management and PDA-enabled applications – running across an E-OTD enabled network jointly set up by SingTel Mobile and Cambridge Positioning Systems Ltd (CPS).

Once in the Tampines trial area, officials from trial sponsors, SingTel Mobile and other trial users, were able to pinpoint users with an E-OTD enabled phone. One application involved using PDAs, Bluetooth and GPRS connections to simulate an ambulance service manager tracking the location of his vehicles at accuracy levels far superior to Cell-ID technologies.

Mr Hui Weng Cheong, SingTel Mobile’s Vice-President (Consumer Products) commented: “Singtel Mobile was the first operator in Singapore to offer location-based services. The services have proven to be very useful and popular with our customers. We have been looking to enhance our existing applications and for higher accuracy positioning technology. This trial project provides us with a good opportunity to evaluate the feasibility of the E-OTD technology and the potential for high-accuracy applications.”

Mr Khoong Hock Yun, Assistant Chief Executive (Infocomm Development Authority) of the IDA, said: “More accurate location information will enable more useful applications. With the availability of GPRS, MMS, multimedia phones and PDAs coupled with a good infrastructure, companies have initiated some exciting pilots and trials for location-based services in Singapore. This joint trial by CPS and SingTel Mobile-the world’s first GSM-based E-OTD trial in a real-world environment involving live applications-further attests to Singapore’s status as a living laboratory for wireless innovation.”

CPS Chief Executive Chris Wade said: “This is an exciting start to this unique trial. It underlines the enormous potential that exists for a new generation of location-sensitive applications. Taking E-OTD-enabled handsets out into an E-OTD-enabled network and witnessing innovative applications working live impressed everyone involved.

“We look forward to expanding both the trial’s scale and scope in terms of applications. The collaborative effort between SingTel Mobile, the IDA, the applications developers and ourselves is a model for future deployment and is a very encouraging signal to the GSM world.”

It is intended that further trials involving a wider range of applications will begin before the end of the year.

The trial area – Tampines Town – was selected because of its mix of business, residential and retail areas. The trial itself also proved how E-OTD technology delivers far greater accuracy than the Cell-ID-based location technology currently used within the SingTel Mobile network.

The GSM market in Asia Pacific is growing rapidly with over 120 operators serving some 200m customers across the region.

E-OTD technology is already proven in US deployments where it has achieved sub-100m accuracy levels.

Hackensack, NJ (PRWEB) October 31, 2012

Master Bond LED401 is a breakthrough system based on LED technology. This adhesive, sealant, coating and encapsulant cures tack-free upon exposure to a 405 nm wavelength light source, without any oxygen inhibition. Optically clear, it is also safer and easier to handle than similar UV systems as LED lights emit substantially less heat than UV lamps. This makes LED401 a suitable choice for applications involving heat sensitive substrates. http://www.masterbond.com/tds/led401

As a one part system, LED401’s open time is indefinite. It is a higher viscosity system at 100,000-150,000 cps, but maintains its flowability and convenient handling. With cure times of 15 to 30 seconds or less in thinner sections, depending upon the distance of the light source from the material being cured, it can also be readily cured in sections up to 1/8 inch thick. It bonds well to similar and dissimilar substrates, including most plastics, metals and ceramics. Additionally, this compound has superior adhesion to glass, polycarbonates and acrylics.

LED401 offers excellent resistance to a variety of chemicals including water, many acids, bases and oils. It has superior electrical insulation properties with a volume resistivity exceeding 1014 ohm-cm. Serviceable over the wide temperature range of -60
