Now Kid Safe Place Now Offering Unique and Powerful Browsers Free and With a Guarantee

Littleton, CO (PRWEB) April 7, 2007 –

Kid Safe Place is offering four kid-safe web browsers created by Childrens Educational Network of San Diego, California, with a free demo and 100% money back guarantee.

Protecting children while they explore the Internet has become a major issue with law enforcement, including the FBI, which has even distributed a publication that helps inform parents about web safety.

These kinds of [Internet] cases truly represent the most abhorrent crimes we see, said Jana Monroe, FBI Assistant Director, Cyber Division. We will continue to work aggressively to prosecute those who engage in the exploitation of our children.

Now, with Kid Safe Place, parents can work just as aggressively to protect children.

There are four new browsers, Santa Surfer, Noahs Net, MindStein Travels and the brand new Son of the Mask from the new movie. Santa Surfer is a Holiday themed browser. Noahs Net is a Christian themed educational browser and MindStein Travels features Professor MindStein, an educational cartoon character. The kid-safe browsers allow children to safely discover the possibilities of the Internet, expanding their horizons and exposing them to different cultures and ways of life. The browsers are controlled by parents, allowing them to assemble a safe, secure and educational Internet experience for their children.

The suite of applications offered by Kid Safe Place includes child-safe web browsers, talking email, talking chat, and, in the future, talking instant messaging. Parents can program and edit an

The Preserve at Rock Creek Present Upscale Mountain Living with a Unique Environmental Touch

Cashiers, NC (PRWEB) June 20, 2007

The Preserve at Rock Creek, a 281-acre community with 200 acres permanently protected from development by a conservation easement, offers residents the best of both worlds: Attractive home sites surrounded by lush natural forest.

Exclusively represented by Landmark Realty Group, The Preserve at Rock Creek is a private, gated mountain community with 16 five-acre home sites surrounded by serene natural forest. Eleven lots remain available, including two that feature their own weekend shelter, or guest house. Prices range from $ 325,000-745,000.

“For me, mountain living means less is always more,” said Tim Bright, Owner and Developer of The Preserve at Rock Creek. “I fell in love with this area as a child and when I returned as a developer, I wanted to maintain the unique beauty and natural state that I had grown up with. That is why I set aside 200 acres as a conservation easement, to ensure that it will never be developed.”

Bright set aside the conservation easement following an environmental assessment that identified more than 100 wildlife species at Rock Creek, including white-tailed deer, foxes, hawks, grouse, owls and native trout. In addition, nine endangered, threatened, rare or watch list species were also found, which include the Appalachian Bewick’s Wren, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker and Southern Appalachian Salamander.

The Preserve at Rock Creek features an eight-acre naturalized wildflower meadow, which Bright restored after acquiring the property. Other community features include hiking and ATV trails, a stocked trout pond, rock outcroppings, cliffs, caves, natural springs, stunning waterfalls and Rock Creek, which runs almost the entire length of the property. The lots also offer gorgeous mountain and lake views.

“The Preserve at Rock Creek is a controlled development with many unique natural aspects,” said Jane Ebberts, Broker-in-Charge and Owner of Landmark Realty Group, the exclusive representative of The Preserve at Rock Creek. “This community really brings together the best of both worlds by providing residents with an upscale lifestyle as well as the natural peace and beauty of mountain living. It is truly a rare combination.”

Surrounding areas offer 30 waterfalls, including Whitewater Falls, the tallest waterfall east of the Mississippi River, as well as Lake Glenville and Lake Toxaway. Nearby Panthertown Valley, 6,700 acres of lush national forest, offers hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and pristine waterfalls. With average temperatures during the winter months ranging from the 30s to mid 40s and a summer ambient temperature of 72 degrees, this region is the perfect place for year-round outdoor activities.

Located in Sapphire, and just eight miles from Cashiers, The Preserve at Rock Creek is also in close proximity to fine dining, lodging and unique antique and upscale shopping. The community is also a short drive from some of the world’s best golf courses, including Wade Hampton Golf Club, Chattooga Club and High Hampton.

Imaginatively Illustrated New Book Provides a Unique Lesson for Parents and Children

Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) October 19, 2007

Drawing from their own upbringing, authors Ron Berlettano and Sonia Morgante mix fantasy with reality and open a door to the heart and mind of a child who is struggling to become an adolescent in Spotless.

In Spotless, a beautiful and equally bright ladybug named Ruby finds her relationship with her domineering, over protective mother extremely trying. When a cute boy moves in next door, Ruby’s mother is determined to keep her daughter away from him. Despite her mother’s wishes, Ruby befriends the new neighbor, and as a result, her life, along with the lives of those closest to her, takes a turn for the better.

Ultimately, the actions of Ruby’s mother impart a valuable lesson to readers. In her mind, she believed she could keep Ruby safe by building a barricade between her daughter and the world, but in reality, all she created was a wall between herself and her daughter. The authors suggest that in spite of wanting to keep children out of harm’s way, it is better for parents to act as a guide for their children rather than make choices for them. The story also shows that allowing children to learn from their mistakes and personal experiences will make them stronger.

The central theme of Spotless is more than relevant in today’s society, where parents are continuously raising arms to protect their children from the evils of the world, while their children eagerly crave independence and freedom. Fun-filled and dazzlingly illustrated, Spotless offers spot-on entertainment and life lessons for readers of all ages.

For more information or to request a free review copy, members of the press can contact Ron Berlettano or Sonia Morgante. Spotless is available for sale online at Amazon.com, BookSurge.com, and through additional wholesale and retail channels worldwide.

Residents Rallying for Fallen GI, Ben Moore, Demonstrates Unique Unity of Bordentowns Historic Bedroom Community

Bordentown, NJ (PRWEB) January 28, 2011

The smaller town of Bordentown, NJ was bustling with thousands of patriots inclusive of its residents and its own war veterans, as well as many US veterans from around the country as people came out to show their respects and to honor and remember fallen war hero, Pfc. Benjamin G. Moore, member of the 693rd Engineer Company out of Fort Drum, NY, 23, who was laid to rest on Saturday the 22nd of January, 2011.

Moore died in Afghanistan when an IED (improvised explosive device) killed him in the line of duty while valiantly serving his country.

In spite of the planned protests by the notorious Westboro Baptist Church which pickets at many veteran memorials around the US, claiming that our country is being punished for its tolerance of homosexuality Bordentown came alive, united together as one, and the residents and its businesses, and even folks from nearby counties and cities, assured that Moores procession was peaceful and without unrest, as they bid their farewells to a fallen American hero.

Bordentown is a small town of barely 4,000 residents, but its history dates backs to the Revolutionary War, and some of the original signees of the Declaration of Independence even resided here [Francis Hopkinson; 1737-1791]. The town embraces the honoring of war veterans who have given their lives in the name of freedom for one and all.

Moores tragic death was treated no differently.

Known by most of the town as the beloved Mayor of Bordentown, Moore received the customary military bugle requiem followed by an honorary three volley rifle salute and the folding of the flag, which was offered on behalf of the United States of America, and was presented to and accepted by his family.

Moores grandmother thanked the large crowd of people who had gathered to remember one of their own, telling them, I love all of you people for thinking so much of him and having such wonderful things to say. He was the sweetest, loving child anyone ever knew.

Moores passing and the hundreds (perhaps even thousands) of supporters that came out for his funeral and memorial is directly in juxtaposition with the mindset and manner of the residents of Bordentown. Its a small town ambience that is truly reminiscent of something that is not so easily found in the US during the present day. Its a place where everyone knows everyone, and a place where you are welcomed with outstretched arms and smiling faces.

Bordentown is such a closely woven community that business owners are all known by first name, even by people who may not have ever contracted them or had a need for their products or services.

If you find yourself in Bordentown, its not the same as you might imagine many other small towns would be. Visitors are offered some unique amenities while traveling through this little niche in the heart of New Jersey.

A widely reviewed and very popular business in Bordentown happens to be a gourmet restaurant called Oliver a Bistro, an intimate eatery that specializes in Central and South American-Caribbean fares using a French technique with Mediterranean and Asian ingredients.

We frequent this establishment often, it is our favorite place to eat in Bordentown, said Bryan Byard, a longtime Bordentown resident. I like the atmosphere and the food quality is excellent. I really like that its a BYOB, (bring your own bottle [of wine]; the restaurant does not have a liquor license so guests dining at Oliver a Bistro are allowed to bring their own wine to enjoy with their meal).

When asked what he finds to be so attractive about living in Bordentown, Byard said that its about the towns rich history and the togetherness of its residents.

Its a small town and a very historic community; Thomas Paine [1737-1809] lived here. Being that its small, its also very tight-knit, he explained. People are really nice and friendly here. Moores death was a very heartwarming story. The entire community really came out to support him and his family. He was also a firefighter and an EMT. Moore was very loved by the people of Bordentown.

Massage therapist and Bordentown resident, Pamela Dahl, who works at the reputed Wellness Center of Bordentown a signature day spa and wellness center that incorporates an eclectic mixture of Eastern and Western healing philosophies into their own unique brand of natural healing said that Moores story and the way that the townspeople united to celebrate his life was nearly indescribable.

Ben went to school with my son. He was two years ahead of him, however, and I did not know him personally, Dahl said. Just being in town and looking down the street at the memorialthe only word that I could think of was: Surreal.

Even though Dahl didnt know Moore personally, it didnt change the fact that she, like every other resident of the town, was impacted, touched and affected by his passing.

For someone that you dont really know personally, I thought to myself, what a wonderful tribute to a fallen hero; he had to be quite a person to be honored in this way. It made me think about how proud I was to be an American, as a first-generation immigrant, and how proud I was to be a resident of Bordentown, Dahl recalled of Bens memorial.

Moores memorial was so extraordinary and moving that Dahl said its unlike anything that shes ever seen in her life before.

Ive never seen anything like this in Seattle, and I lived there for 30 years, she said. There were a lot of folks in town that did not know him, and its just hard to describe, it was all very emotional. It was amazing how the people in this town came together to protect his family from the Westborough Baptist Church, who was trying to mar Bens memory. It just makes me so proud to be a part of this small-knit community.

Tantamount to Bordentowns multifarious mixture of hospitable residents, and the towns equally as diverse history, are some inspiring personal stories that are very relevant to the underlying superlatives of what it truly means to be an American citizen.

Marinela Csefan one of the estheticians at the Wellness Center of Bordentown is a transplant from Romania, who came to America two decades ago, like Dahl, in pursuit of the American Dream that many would-be immigrants from around the world fantasize about.

Marinella is from Romania, said Dahl of her coworker. I met her about 8 months ago. Shes an esthetician working at the wellness center, alongside of myself and the owner, Jayme Bussey. Much like me, Marinella is in pursuit of the American Dream. And we are both first-generation immigrants.

Moores heartbreaking story has recently placed Bordentown under the national spotlight, but the town is literally bursting at the seams with good folks just like him. Its seemingly in par with the mantra and mindset of these humble residents. Everyone who comes to Bordentown is considered to be a part of its far-reaching and ever-growing family.

Theres just something about this town, it just warms your heart about how everyone comes together, Dahl explained. When I saw all of the townspeople come out, and the fire trucks lined up on the street, I called my mother and told her that Id never seen anything like this before. Even when protestors were involved, the town ensured that everything was handled peacefully. It really touches you, and being a West Coast girl, this is one of the things that keeps me in Bordentown.

You feel so very welcomed here, Dahl inferred. Its like the TV show Cheerseveryone knows your name.

Sarasota Thug Coaches Sadly Not Unique

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 06, 2011

The Center for Ethical Youth Coachings passion to protect young athletes was flamed by the shocking reports of youth coaches attacking referees. Both the Huffington Post and Yahoo News featured dramatic video footage of adult coaches initiating a physical attack on a referee who made a bad call against their youth football team. One coach started the melee, was quickly joined by other adults, then the most disturbing image showed a young player in full pads pummeling another referee as the brawl escalated. Obviously, the youth was modeling the adults behavior that was displayed before him.

Adults having been entrusted in a mentoring position with the youth of our community acting and behaving in that manner is totally unacceptable. Ive seen minor stuff like this but nothing to this degree. Said Col. Steve Burns of the Sarasota County Sheriffs Police.

The Center for Ethical Youth Coaching is committed to stopping this, minor stuff before it escalates into crisis situations such as this one in Sarasota.

Looking at this video one wonders how these adults get entrusted with the mentoring of our kids. Obese, out-of-control of their anger, inappropriate adults leading kids into physical attacks, parents need to demand better for their kids. It is as simple as that. No one could see this coming? We should create zero tolerance of such thugs. Says Dr. John Mayer, a clinical psychologist who specializes in youth violence.

New, not-for-profit Center for Ethical Youth Coaching is on a mission to end inappropriate adults training kids in sports. From coaches who blow smoke in the faces of kids that make mistakes to coaches that slap players, any parent who has had a child play sports has seen or heard of these abuses, yet parents seem helpless to stop inappropriate adults from coaching their children.

The Center for Ethical Youth Coaching (CEYC) has developed a comprehensive credentialing program to certify that a youth coach has met the highest ethical standards to safely coach young people.

To be certified, a coach must read a training manual and then take an exam both of which cover the areas of ethics, safety, first aid, good communication, sportsmanship, healthy lifestyle, discipline, developmental issues in young people and handling special issues in youth coaching such as dealing with parents, motivating players, child abuse, and substance abuse. The coach then passes a background check from the leading security screening service and pledges to uphold the ethical standards of the CEYC. The cost of the three-year certification is $ 75.00 and that covers the manual, test fees and background check. All procedures can be done online at the Centers website.

The manual alone is worth the price of the certification. It has innovative coaching techniques never offered anywhere else such as how to use each player on the team and still maximize success and the 5 stages of player development. Said Andrew Teunis a high school lacrosse coach.

The manual and certification do not emphasize learning the techniques specific to an individual sport, rather its focus is on the safety, respect, character development and ethical treatment of the players by adult coaches. A certified ethical youth coach pledges to continue to be a student of the game (they coach) for their entire career.

After passing the examination a coach can use the initials, E.Y.C. after his/her name, on their uniform and on promotional materials.

The success of our program will take the grassroots support of parents who have long suffered seeing their child hurt by these inappropriate adults. We urge parents to ask their park districts, their schools, their state associations and their sports clubs to only have E.Y.C. certified ethical youth coaches train their children. We need to start asking why arent these adults, in such sensitive positions in our childrens lives better trained and screened. Comments Justin Mayer the founder and president of the Center for Ethical Youth Coaching.

Complete information on the new certification including information on the exam can be found on the certifying associations web site: http://www.ethicalyouthcoaching.com.

The mission of the not-for-profit Center for Ethical Youth Coaching is to raise the ethical standards of coaches who work with young athletes, through research, publication, credentialing and public presentations. As a result of raising these ethical standards, young athletes will be in the best possible position to learn and grow through sports. Sports are a tremendous way to learn about life and develop life skills. It is therefore important that coaches are prepared to guide young athletes in the most ethical manner possible.

Phoenix Home Remodeling Company, Republic West Remodeling, Begins Unique Outdoor Pavilion Project


Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) February 01, 2012

Phoenix home remodeling company, Republic West Remodeling, announced it has begun development on an innovative outdoor pavilion project for a Phoenix clients family compound. The project is being constructed to enhance child safety around the swimming and provide an additional outdoor living area.

Rather than simply installing fencing around the pool area, the homeowners chose to also construct an outdoor pavilion. The pavilion extends across one edge of the pool area and provides a large outdoor room for eating, relaxing and entertaining.

The pavilion is enclosed with commercial-grade, seamless tempered glass. The facility is raised above the pool to allow full view of pool activities. To access the pool, users must enter through a gate in the pavilion. Steps proceed down from the pavilion to the pool area.

The project accomplishes the owners main goal of protecting children from accessing the pool without supervision. Plus, the pavilion provides an attractive outdoor living space that can serve additional purposes.

This outdoor pavilion is a great example of how we can translate a homeowners vision into a functional and beautiful space, said Jim Weisman, owner of Republic West Remodeling, a leading Phoenix home remodeling.
