Operation Freedom Bell Campaign Joins Beth Moore, Ltcol Oliver North And Travis Cottrell To Provide Delivery Of Bibles To U.S. Military Troops

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) September 18, 2008

Indelible Creative Group recently announced two unprecedented projects for this holiday season, Operation Freedom Bell and new Travis Cottrell project, Ring The Bells.

A highlight of the Cottrell project release goes further than the music. Ring the Bells will be a launching point for Operation Freedom Bell, which brings hope, encouragement and Bibles to U.S. Soldiers who are serving overseas.

The purchase of each solid-brass Freedom Bell for only ten dollars provides an American solider with an “American Heroes” New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs. When a Freedom Bell is purchased, both the consumer and the solider will also receive video downloads from LtCol Oliver North and Beth Moore, along with a MP3 single from Travis Cottrell. Bells may be purchased and Bibles sent online through http://www.operationfreedombell.org, as well as through select retail and additional ministry outlets. At the Operation Freedom Bell website, there are also forums to hear directly from the soldiers and leave your prayers and thoughts for them as well.

“Often in life we ask ourselves: ‘How can I make a difference?'” Jeff Sheets, president & CEO of Son Companies & E3, a partner in Operation Freedom Bell. “Operation Freedom Bell was founded with the desire to provide a tangible way to keep our American Heroes at the forefront of our hearts and prayers and to be a supply line of the most important gifts we can give, God’s Word. You can make a difference, most importantly in praying for our troops and you can make an eternal impact by giving them God’s Word. In a real sense, participation in Operation Freedom Bell is one of the more tangible ways each of us can make a difference in the lives of men and women serving and protecting around the world.”

Operation Freedom Bell is a movement encouraging prayer and the opportunity to physically place the Word of God into the hands of men and women who need hope in the battlefield and encouragement from those they are serving. Travis Cottrell, Beth Moore, and LtCol Oliver North will lead this initiative, but it will be up to the American people to keep it fueled and keep the bells ringing.

Both the Ring the Bells CD and the Freedom Bell will be available at retail, online, and at Cottrell’s live tour events nationwide on October 7, 2008, through Indelible Creative Group / Word Entertainment. Cottrell will be touring this fall at Beth Moore Living Proof Live, and will be performing in December on Compassion International’s Gloria tour with Cindy Morgan and Shaun Groves.

Nothing But Nets and NBA Cares Travel to Senegal to Provide 20,000 Life-Saving Bed Nets


Dakar, Senegal (Vocus) August 9, 2010

More than 20 NBA athletes, coaches, and Legends including Dikembe Mutombo, DeSagana Diop, Danillo Gallinari, and Hasheem Thabeet joined the movement to end malaria today in Senegal, West Africa. The group traveled with the United Nations Foundations Nothing But Nets campaign and NBA Cares to Rufisque, a village outside of the capital, Dakar, to help distribute 20,000 long-lasting, insecticidetreated nets to families in great need. In addition, the players and coaches met with community leaders and families to discuss the impact of malaria in Rufisque, particularly during the current rainy season, and the necessity of saving lives by preventing malaria through the nightly use of life-saving bed nets.

Growing up in Senegal, I have seen firsthand the deadly effects of malaria, especially on children, said DeSagana Diop, Center from the Charlotte Bobcats. Its incredible to be part of such an important program that delivers life-saving bed nets directly to families to protect them from malaria. We need to provide a bed net to everyone who needs one. Im proud to be a spokesperson for Nothing But Nets, to join the movement to end malaria by 2015, and to help continue the effort here in Senegal.”

As a founding partner in the Nothing But Nets campaign, NBA Cares has helped Nothing But Nets build a movement to raise more than $ 30 million to send over 3 million bed nets to families in Africa. Teams, players, and fans from the NBA, WNBA, and NBA Development League have supported Nothing But Nets through contributions, in-arena activations, and community-based events.

One of the best defenses we have against malaria is the bed net which costs just $ 10 to deliver to a family in Africa, said Adrianna Logalbo, Director of the UN Foundations Nothing But Nets. We are grateful to NBA Cares for their ongoing commitment to raise awareness about malaria among families in Africa and America and for joining us to distribute life-saving bed nets here in Senegal.

Nothing But Nets, a global, grassroots campaign to end malaria in Africa, has helped distribute more than 3 million long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets in 15 countries across Africa. With the help of NBA Cares, covering Senegal with bed nets will be a key step toward the global goal of ending malaria deaths by 2015 and achieving Millennium Development Goal 4 – reducing child mortality worldwide.

To view photos from the Senegal trip and to receive the latest news and stories of our star supporters, follow Nothing But Nets on Twitter @NothingButNets, and on Facebook http://www.Facebook.com/NothingButNets. For more information, please visit http://www.NothingButNets.net.

BACKGROUND

100% of the 12 million people in Senegal face the deadly risk of malaria, which is responsible for 25% of the deaths in the countrys hospitals. Nothing But Nets, in partnership with NBA Cares and in coordination with the Ministry of Health and U.S. Agency for International Development, plans to deliver 20,000 long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families in Senegal from malaria.

Every 30 seconds, a child dies in Africa from malaria – which is easily prevented through the use of an insecticide-treated bed net. The nets create a protective barrier against mosquitoes at night, when the vast majority of malaria transmissions occur, and are the most cost-effective method of preventing the spread of the disease. One bed net can protect a family of four, and lasts up to five years. A net costs just $ 10 to purchase, deliver, and educate the recipient on its proper use.

About Nothing But Nets

Nothing But Nets is a global, grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a leading killer of children in Africa. Inspired by sports columnist Rick Reilly, hundreds of thousands of people have joined the campaign that was created by the United Nations Foundation in 2006. Founding campaign partners include the National Basketball Associations NBA Cares, The people of The United Methodist Church, and Sports Illustrated. It only costs $ 10 to provide an insecticide-treated bed net that can prevent this deadly disease. Visit http://www.NothingButNets.net to send a net and save a life.

GlobalSign Partners with Web of Trust to Provide Reputation Data in the Website Passport

London, UK (Vocus/PRWEB) March 15, 2011

GlobalSign (http://www.globalsign.co.uk), one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in Digital Certificate security, today announced a new partnership with Web of Trust (WOT), allowing the addition of community-sourced reputation information into GlobalSigns Website Passport service. The data feed will provide real-time access to the worlds largest reputation rating community to enhance customer trust and help users make an informed decision on a sites trustworthiness.

End users are becoming more cautious on the web, following constant press exposure to cases of phishing websites and online fraud. Lack of trust may cause visitors to leave the website or abandon their shopping cart; as a result, building trust is becoming a top priority for website owners. GlobalSigns Website Passport removes this issue by providing website owners with a Site Seal (Passport) giving access to a collection of public information to help users identify the website and ensure the organisation behind it is legitimate and reputable. The Website Passport also presents website and company identification data, as vetted by the GlobalSign Certificate Authority, hence providing high levels of authentication.

The Website Passport aggregates a range of third party information to enhance the level of trust provided. With a comprehensive app oriented web service, website owners have access to a potentially unlimited marketplace of third party service providers which they can customise for best appeal. The partnership with Web of Trust will allow users to have easy and real time access to community-powered ratings from Web of Trust, as the WOT Passport page displays trustworthiness, privacy, child safety and vendor reliability ratings. Reputation needs to be earned, and as such Passport takes website credibility to a new level, with added reliability and transparency. WOTs fast growing global community is currently made up of over 18 million users, providing data based on their own real-life experiences for 31 million websites. The reputation data is updated every 30 minutes to ensure the highest levels of accuracy. The addition of the WOT app gives website owners the opportunity to present users with a combination of data from both the virtual and physical world.

The Web of Trust app adds to our value offering, making Passport a comprehensive display of information for users, establishing identity, proving legitimacy, as well as advising on reputation, said Paul Tourret, Managing Director, GlobalSign EMEA. We anticipate a long term relationship with WOT in several product areas, combining GlobalSign and WOT security and reputation data to build a trusted Internet for all users.

Every time you go online to pay bills, email, shop or talk to your friends on social sites, you are exposed to new malware threats, rogue websites and attacks on the Internet, said Vesa Per

WOT and Stop The Hacker Join Hands to Provide Security Services to Website Owners

Riverside, CA and Helsinki, Finland (PRWEB) September 15, 2011

Millions of websites have been built using weak computer code from easy-to-use website creation software with pre-packaged templates. Nearly 90% of websites have at least one serious security vulnerability which allows malicious hackers to break in and compromise them. Once a website is compromised, malicious hackers use the benign website to spread viruses and trojans to infect the computers of the sites visitors. Once the malware is transferred to the visitor’s computer, it begins the cycle of ID theft and malicious activities. This website penetration by hackers destroys the reputation of a website.

Web-based malware is on the rise. The number of blacklisted websites doubled in the last 3 years. Traditional signature based Anti-Viruses cannot detect new forms of web-malware on compromised websites, said Dr. Anirban Banerjee, VP of R&D at StopTheHacker.com .

WOT is partnering with StopTheHacker.com to offer security services to websites with good or excellent reputations via the WOT Trust Seal Pro. The WOT Trust Seal Pro is a breakthrough website indicator that displays the reputation of online assets and ensures the security of websites. It is an effective tool for website owners to communicate their trustworthiness while assuring the technical security of their site. Daily malware scans of the website and 24x7x365 alerts ensure that any hacking incident is detected before it has a chance to affect the reputation of the website.

Website owners, especially those with e-commerce sites, need to do everything they can to ensure their visitors that they are trustworthy and their site is secure, says Vesa Per

Allegheny General Hospital Child Psychologist to Provide Testimony at Senate Hearing on Protecting Children from Abuse and Neglect

Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 12, 2011

Anthony Mannarino, Ph.D., an internationally recognized child psychologist and Director of the Center for Traumatic Stress in Children and Adolescents at Allegheny General Hospital (AGH) in Pittsburgh has been invited to provide written testimony that will be presented at a hearing tomorrow before the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Children and Families. The hearing, scheduled for 10:15 am in Washington, will focus on how well federal laws (most specifically: reporting requirements) are working to protect children from abuse.

Organized by U.S. Senators, Barbara A. Mikulski (D-Md.), Chairwoman of the Subcommittee on Children and Families, Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Ranking Member of the Subcommittee and Bob Casey (D-Pa.), the hearing will examine existing gaps in the legal system and consider proposals to improve reporting requirements.

According to Senator Mikulskis press announcement, the hearing follows troubling allegations of child sexual abuse at Pennsylvania State University and the failure to report the alleged crimes to law-enforcement authorities. Currently, only 18 states require all adults to report suspected child abuse.

Dr. Mannarino is a leading authority on childhood trauma and abuse who has provided clinical services to traumatized children and their families for more than 25 years. He is the past president of the American Professional Society on the Abuse of Children and was named to the American Psychological Associations Presidential Task Force on Child and Adolescent Post-traumatic Stress Disorder in 2008.

Under Dr. Mannarinos direction, the AGH Center for Traumatic Stress in Children and Adolescents is a program that helps children and families cope with traumatic events, such as child abuse, community or domestic violence, terrorism, war and natural disasters. The centers team of psychiatrists and psychologists have played critical roles is assisting disaster relief efforts around the country, including September 11, Hurricane Katrina and the crash of USAir Flight 427, among other events.

Dr. Mannarino and his colleagues have also been principle investigators for numerous federally funded studies examining the impact and treatment of child sexual abuse.

Together with Judith Cohen, MD, a child psychiatrist at AGH, Dr. Mannarino is credited with developing trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) an innovative and effective treatment for traumatized children that has become a standard of care for children across the United States and in several countries around the world. They are also co-authors of the book Treating Trauma and Traumatic Grief in Children and Adolescents, which provides an overview of the TF-CBT approach and how the model can be adapted to treat children of different ages and cultural backgrounds.

Editors Note: A copy of Dr. Mannarinos Senate testimony will be available upon request on Tuesday, December 13 at 10:15 am.

SportsSignup and Axon Sports Partner to Provide Online Concussion Management Tools for Youth Sports Organizations


Saratoga Springs, NY (PRWEB) December 22, 2011

SportsSignup, a national leader in online services for sports organizations, and Axon Sports, creators of a breakthrough testing system that helps qualified medical providers make return-to-play decisions after head injuries, are collaborating on educational initiatives highlighting safety in concussion management, which includes making Baseline testing more accessible to young athletes.

Axon Sports developed the Computerized Cognitive Assessment Tool (CCAT), an online cognitive test that utilizes distinct tasks to measure attention, recall, and speed and accuracy of responses to provide a snapshot of an athletes brain function. If a concussion is suspected, the Baseline test results, when compared to After-Injury test results, are a critical tool for qualified medical providers in assessing cognitive impairment and are extremely valuable in guiding care decisions, including when it is safe for athletes to return to the classroom, practice, or competitive play.

SportsSignups services allow sports organizations to manage all aspects of sports administration, from online sports registration and payments to team rosters, scheduling, and coach background checks. The integration with Axon Sports enables organizations that use SportsSignup services to easily offer Baseline testing at a discounted price during the registration process. In addition, clubs and teams can purchase bulk quantities of test credits to obtain discounts for their members via the SportsSignup system, providing an even more affordable option to implement Baseline testing to all of their eligible athletes.

The safety of young athletes is every familys main concern, and we share that concern, said Anthony Bruno, CEO of SportsSignup. As we continue to learn more about the cumulative effects of concussions and other head injuries, it is clear that we need to do all we can to give families, medical personnel and others involved in the care and nurturing of young athletes access to the best information available to help them make sound, safe decisions. Thats why were proud to partner with Axon Sports to spread the word about the importance of using the Computerized Cognitive Assessment Tool, and making it more accessible through our system.

Axon Sports recommends that an athlete take an annual Baseline test at the start of every school year or before the first practice of a sport season. In the event of a concussion or other head injury, an athlete should visit with a qualified medical provider who can use the Baseline result as the benchmark for After-Injury testing and care management.

Axon Sports is the first company to make Baseline tests broadly accessible, affordable, and convenient. The Axon Sports CCAT is available online to any athlete age 10 and older. Athletes can complete a test in eight to 10 minutes. Parents can access the online data any time and share it with their childs doctor, coach or athletic trainer. Preview the test at axonsports.com/demotest.

Rising public awareness about the importance of concussion management has led to widespread legislative attention. Today, nearly all states have passed or have pending legislation. The three most common elements are: concussion education, removal from play and return-to-play decisions to be made by qualified medical providers.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 10 percent of athletes in contact sports will suffer a concussion in a given year. The risk is especially acute in sports such as ice hockey, football and soccer, where collisions are frequent.

SportsSignup has become an essential service for a fast-growing number of leagues and individuals, and were extremely pleased they have joined us in the effort to raise awareness about the importance of knowing baseline cognitive performance for each individual athlete, said Polly James, President and CEO of Axon Sports. SportsSignups reach ensures thousands of athletes and their families will have access to this vital, potentially life-saving information.

About Axon Sports

Axon Sports provides the Axon Sports Computerized Cognitive Assessment Tool (CCAT) as well as educational resources on a wide range of topics surrounding its proper use within an overall concussion management program. Together with athletes, parents, coaches, athletic trainers and doctors, Axon Sports is on a mission to protect and train the athletic brain.
