Families Booking Popular Reunion Cruises during Wave Season Now Qualify for Travel Insureds Group Travel Insurance in 2010

East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) February 11, 2010

Travel Insureds recently updated group travel insurance plans allow coverage for family groups of 10 or more members booking their reunion cruises. The 2010 Wave Season marks the first time family groups can enjoy group travel insurance savings in the booking period when the industry offers some of its best cruise deals of the year.

The first quarter of the year, the traditional Wave Season period when cruise line members of the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) offer some of their most attractive sales, is an opportunity for family groups of 10 or more. They can tap into the growing popularity of family reunion cruises and get a great deal for cruising together in summer, fall or even next winter. Travel Insured International has recently revised and simplified its group travel insurance program into two choices of Travel Insured Lite or Deluxe Group Protection plans. The revision allows family groups of 10 or more members, who previously needed to purchase individual plans, to obtain the savings of Travel Insured group insurance. Remember that group members are required to be traveling to the same destination with the same departure and return dates to be covered on the same Travel Insured group protection plan.

Family travel insurance coverage allows for groups of relatives to take advantage of the popular reunion vacation experience that cruising provides. Dozens of daily onboard cruise activities usually include something for everyone, and supervised childrens programs on many vessels, organized for kids in multiple age groups, allow parents to enjoy adult vacations enhanced by hours of child-sitting services.

Members of a family can enjoy several Travel Insured Group Deluxe or Lite Protection plan options that mean flexibility for both the group and its individuals.

One set of attractive premium rates for the group: there is no difference whether the insurance is inclusive for all members or voluntary for individual members.
Cancel for Any Reason coverage is available as an included purchase for the entire group provided it is purchased within 14 days as an option with either the Lite or Deluxe Protection plan. The Cancel for Any Reason option allows group members to cancel their trip for any reason up to two days prior to scheduled departure and obtain up to a 75% reimbursement of prepaid, non-refundable trip costs.
If a group arranges its trip – and buys either the Group Lite or Group Deluxe Protection plan through a travel agent partner of Travel Insured International it enjoys the added option to purchase Cancel for Any Reason coverage either as an included purchase for the entire group or as an optional purchase by individuals within the group.
Group insurance members can qualify, if they purchase the group insurance plan prior to their final trip payment, for a Pre-Existing Medical Condition waiver. The waiver can provide Trip Cancellation coverage before the trip, or Trip Interruption and Emergency Medical Expense coverage during the trip, for a recurrence of a pre-existing condition that might otherwise be excluded from coverage under the plan.

The Best Group Cruise Insurance for Wave Season

In addition to the above pricing features and options, Travel Insured International group plans offer a range of coverage to deal with unforeseen risks that could potentially disrupt a family or other group cruise vacation.

Travel Insureds Group Deluxe Protection plan includes: Trip Cancellation / Interruption; Trip Delay of up to $ 150 per insured per day; Emergency Accident & Sickness Medical Expenses; Emergency Medical Evacuation; Baggage & Personal Effects plus Baggage Delay; 24-hour Emergency Travel Assistance and up to $ 25,000 of Travel Accident coverage.
Travel Insured Group Lite Protection plan has lower premiums and benefit limits than the Deluxe plan. It includes: Trip Cancellation / Interruption; Trip Delay; Emergency Medical Expenses; Emergency Medical Evacuation; Baggage & Personal Effects plus Baggage Delay, and 24-hour Emergency Travel Assistance.

Pre-Booking Travel Insured Group Plans

There is a pre-booking requirement for Travel Insured Group Plans. Group leaders or agents should visit http://www.travelinsured.com or call 1-800-243-3174 and ask for the Group Administrator. A first step is to apply either for inclusive plan for the whole group or a voluntary plan for individual members. For inclusive, the plan must be included for all passengers and payment included as part of the initial trip deposit. For voluntary, the cost of the protection plan must be invoiced as a separate line item with an option to decline the protection plan by subtracting the plan cost from the total package price.

Insured participants must insure the full prepaid cost of the trip. Premiums, which are net price, must be paid along with the group manifest by the 15th of the month prior to trip departure, and both manifests and credit card payment by Visa or Master Card, can be made online. Travel agency checks are also accepted. Once premium payment has been received the travel agent or group leader will receive electronically a Description of Coverage to be distributed to group members.

AllFancyDress reveal nativity plays are more popular than ever

Wickford, UK (PRWeb UK) December 24, 2010

Nativity plays are growing extremely popular in schools, as teachers believe it is a great way to teach students drama, religion and life skills. With this increase in popularity, there is a growing demand for nativity costumes.

Nativity plays have been receiving a lot of media attention, with most believing parents should be able to take photographs during the performance. The Information Commissioner, Christopher Graham has said that such photography is not in breach of the Data Protection Act as long as the pictures are taken for personal use.

Despite the ongoing debate about photography at school nativity plays, the demand for fancy dress costumes are soaring. Children want to take part and teachers and families are more than willing to organise the event, creating sets and buying costumes for the children.

All Fancy Dress are seeing the positive side of this trend, with nativity costume sales on the rise. In their Nativity collection, families can find such items as the Mary Costume and the Shepherd Costume.

Barn animal costumes are also proving a very popular choice with parents, as most find it easier to buy the costumes rather than make them. All Fancy Dress have seen the Little Donkey Costume becoming one of their best sellers along with their Child Camel Costume.

Mark Heaton of All Fancy Dress.com commented; Whilst hand made costumes are wonderful, in reality many parents and schools do not have the time and resources to make them. We have found that parents increasingly need affordable nativity costumes on a tight timescale. In fact many parents call us a day or two before the nativity play itself, and this is where our next day delivery service really comes into its own. There is such a breadth of characters in Nativity plays nowadays, and its great that more and more children have an opportunity to be a part of them!

http://www.allfancydress.com is one of UKs leading online discount fancy dress retail outlets that not only supply an enormous range of costumes and accessories including Christmas Costumes for adults and children, but also a personal party organising service.

McGruff Take A Bite Out of Crime

Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) September 04, 2012

As teens and tweens spend more and more time online on Facebook and other social networks, parents have lost their ability to stay on top of their childrens online activities. Parents need to be aware of their teens online life to keep them safe from cyberbullying, Internet predators and other online dangers. Today, McGruff SafeGuard announced a new release of McGruff SafeGuard for PCs that enables parents to monitor what their tweens and teens do on dozens of popular social networks.

McGruff SafeGuard intelligently monitors and records what teens post, chat or message about on Facebook, Twitter and many other top social networks. Once installed on a teens PC, McGruff SafeGuard sends a text or email to the parent if it detects potentially dangerous activity.

McGruff SafeGuard is designed to show a parent not just where a teen goes on social networks, but what they do there and with whom they interact. It records all of the teens online activities such as chats on Facebook, Google Talk, Skype and other social networks, as well as their email interactions on Gmail, Yahoo, Microsoft Live and others. Parents can visit the secure, parents-only, password-protected McGruff SafeGuard website to see what their child has been doing and restrict what they can do, if they so desire.

Monitoring for behaviors such as cyberbullying, loneliness, violence, sexuality, alcohol/drug usage or references, dangerous acronyms or being befriended by unknown individuals, McGruff SafeGuard analyzes a teens online behavior and warns parents of suspect activity. It can even translate teen chat-speak lingo, such as acronyms like LMIRL (lets meet in real life).

Parents can also view the websites their teen has visited, and control the types of websites they can visit. Block or allow content by topic, age or by creating a customized list of sites to block. Over 100 topics can be blocked including pornography, dating, violence, sex education, alcohol, drugs, gambling and many others.

McGruff SafeGuard provides these parental control features:



Maternity Skin Care Products and Services Now Becoming Increasingly Popular with Dermatologists and Cosmetic Physicians

(PRWEB) November 14, 2012

There are many industries that have recognized a need to offer a specialized service to pregnant women. It is important to make sure that expecting women are receiving customized programs to ensure a safe and healthy pregnancy. Whether it is prenatal massages, pregnancy yoga and pilates or custom pregnancy diet plans, various businesses and industry leaders are making sure that they have something to provide to this highly conscientious consumer.

Skin care specialist such as dermatologist and aesthetic practices are now becoming engaged in the pregnancy market. They have an increasing number of women that are aware of the fact that certain common skin care products are now off limits during gestation and while nursing, due to potential dangers associated with them. Therefore, patients frequently ask their physicians about the safety of the cosmetic products that they are using.

Some innovative and responsible physicians offices are taking the approach to not only offer personalized pregnancy skin care products and services but also are highly committed to educating their patients on safe ingredients and best practices.

Pregnancy puts many of our patients in a catch 22 situation. The hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and breastfeeding can bring not only a glow, but acne and skin discoloration, explains Dr. Flynn of Family Dermatology in Raleigh NC. We frequently see women that want to address these issues, but without any potential risk to their child. This is why we decided to provide specialized treatments and skin care that offer worry-free management of their skin’s needs.

It is not surprising to see dermatologist and cosmetic doctors cater to pregnant and nursing women. After all it is an incredibly important and very large market, says Gina Zeiger, President and Founder of Pretty Mommies Skin Care, one of the countrys leading pregnancy skin care lines. Since the inception of Pretty Mommies earlier this year we have seen tremendous growth from dermatologist, plastic surgeons and medical spas throughout the US. In fact, I believe within the next couple of years it will be industry standard for physicians that specialize in treating the skin to offer their patients a maternity skin care line.

A good skin care regimen is important to many people that want to maintain a healthy complexion and protect themselves against environmental factors such as sun exposure. A safe skin care regimen for expecting women becomes not only important but necessary from them and their baby.

The knowledge surrounding pregnancy safety is always expanding. It began with changes in diet and lifestyle, rest, exercise and has now evolved into skin care. It is exciting and comforting to know that as more information is discovered that pertains to a healthy pregnancy that healthcare providers and companies are working together to inform and to provide solutions to their patients and customers.

Pretty Mommies Skin Care formulates and distributes maternity skin care products to dermatologist, plastic surgeons, medical spas and other physicians throughout the United States. They are in the process of expanding their business internationally. To learn more about Pretty Mommies and to find a physician near you please visit http://www.prettymommies.com.

GoTrack Adds EZ-Alert to Popular App

Lee’s Summit, MO (PRWEB) March 29, 2013

GoTrack, which gives users the ability to monitor the exact movements of any outfitted vehicle through GPS tracking, has announced the addition of a new featureEZ-Alert. This latest innovation allows users to enable an instant next movement alert on any of their vehicles equipped with GoTrack. It is available on both the traditional and mobile applications.

According to GoTrack President Randall Coker, the companys GPS vehicle tracker system was created for responsible parents looking to monitor their teenagers, concerned children protecting their aging parents and cost-conscious business owners keeping tabs on their fleet of cars, trucks or vans. EZ-Alert is just another tool they can all use in a variety of ways. Best of all, users can be notified of the next time their vehicle moves simply by pushing a button on their smartphone or clicking on their computer monitor.

If a parent wanted to be notified when their teen is leaving a friends house or some other location or event, now they have that option with EZ-Alert, Coker said. Instead of having to constantly monitor their childs movements in front of a computer screen, they can get an email sent to them, letting them know that their teen is on their way home or leaving for a new destination. Coker stated that EZ-Alerts uses are endless.

The dispatcher of a plumbing company could receive a call for an emergency job, Coker said. Once one of their plumbers finishes their current call and starts heading out, the dispatcher could recognize that and reroute them to the emergency call.

Anti-theft is another practical use, Coker says, as EZ-Alert could be set in any area or neighborhood where a user does not feel their vehicle is completely secure. With the system, they would receive an email if their vehicle was moved.

I’m sure there are many more uses for the EZ-Alert that our customers will figure out and use over time, Coker said.

For more information, and to view testimonials, visit http://www.gotrack.com/. GoTrack can also be found on Facebook.

GoTrack was established in 2001 to help customers track their vehicles and manage their service businesses. Today, thousands of vehicles are outfitted with GoTrack tracking units, which have made it convenient for individuals and small businesses alike to take advantage of GPS vehicle tracking with low-cost, simple plug-in installation.

Security Advisory: Antivirus Firm Thirtyseven4 Provides Five Proactive Parental Tips for Minimizing Risks Associated with Popular Apps

Medina, OH (PRWEB) July 18, 2013

Thirtyseven4, LLC, a leading provider of Windows, Mac and Android antivirus solutions, released today five practical and important precautions for keeping children safe and informed of the dangers of todays prevalent apps. According to a study conducted by Thirtyseven4 that polled its Facebook followers and Mobile Security customers: photo-sharing and video-sharing apps such as Instagram and Snapchat were among the most popular apps identified by parents of kids with Smartphones, and 78.5% of those surveyed felt these apps were completely safe.

A common practice on Instagram is to upload pictures and assign hashtags to photos [adding tags to photos helps users connect to new followers and share their photos with more people]. The inherent danger in this practice is that the use of Hashtags allows anyone, including complete strangers with access to Instagram, to view your images and the private information associated with it. This increases risks in many areas, including the accidental exposure of private photos. This may result in unhealthy or unwanted attention from strangers, said Steven Sundermeier, Owner of Thirtyseven4.

People also view Snapchat as a harmless app with its ability to destroy an image after a period of 10 -15 seconds. What most users arent considering is that the recipient of the video or photo can take a screenshot of the image and redistribute that photo on their social networking sites. This potential for harm can increase the risk of cyberbullying among other things, concluded Sundermeier

Thirtyseven4 suggests the following educational and precautionary measures to reduce the risks associated with todays popular apps:

1) Take the time to become familiar with your childs Smartphone and its technology.

2)Take advantage of applications with mobile tracking software installed, which allow you to use your home computer to track your childs text messages, phone calls, etc. online.

3) Make it a priority and requirement to join your child on his/her Instagram and other social networking accounts. By doing so, you will be able to see and search the public information being posted by or about your child.

4) Place download and content restrictions on your childrens phone.

5) Make it a habit to educate your child on the dangers and risks associated with Smartphone apps

About Thirtyseven4:

Born out of a desire to better connect antivirus protection solutions with premium customer support and service, Thirtyseven4, LLC seeks to protect schools, businesses, governmental agencies and homeusers with the best antivirus products available.

Ask Filter Man’s Greatest Hits–Check Out This Growing List of Ask Filter Man’s Most Popular Industrial Filter Articles

Portage, MI (PRWEB) September 22, 2006

Progressive Ink manufactures printing inks for flexible packaging, such as snack packaging, milk cartons and bread bags. In the St. Louis, Missouri manufacturing facility, pressurized bag filters used in the fill area were generating a lot of waste. During a batch run, up to twenty filter bags were replaced and thrown away.

Progressive Ink was concerned about the large amounts of waste generated and its effect on the environment. There were other problems too. Occasionally, a bag would rupture and contaminate the ink being processed for shipping. Progressive Ink also experienced variations in the filtering performance of the bags.

Ronningen-Petter’s Solution:

With few solutions available on the market, Progressive Ink had trouble finding a filter that could filter tight enough to meet the industry requirements of at least 75 micron retention. Their extensive search ended with the Ronningen-Petter Mechanically-Cleaned DCF filter — which offered filtration capabilities well beyond the industry standard.

The company installed a DCF-800 filter that filters to 50 micron. It is equipped with pneumatic timers, Teflon
