Pioneer Linens tabletop accessories West Palm Beach, Florida Throwing a dinner party? Create a feast not just for the tummy, but the eyes too, with luxury table linens and tabletop accessories at Pioneer Linens, the nation's leading designer linens store. Create an atmosphere that will make it an affair to remember with luxury accessories that are ideal for any occasion. Pioneer Linens offers an impressive variety of tabletop accessories that are sure to be the centerpiece of any table setting, including placemats, chargers, napkin rings, salt and pepper shakers, and more from Sferra, George Henry, Settings by Mona, Matouk, Pimpernel and more! Place Settings When designing an elegant place setting, one of them most important elements is a charger, which will work as the base for a table setting. Chargers add decoration to the table and bring attention to fine china and silver. Think of the charger as a picture frame to show off fine china. A glass charger, such as the Tesoro Charger by Italica, works perfectly for a traditional design. If the desired look is to add layers to a place setting, place a cotton placemat beneath a glass charger, adding a more polished look that makes guests feel important. Napkins and Napkin Rings When choosing a napkin, coordinate the napkin with the tablecloth. Select anything from a classic linen napkin with hemstitch border to a colorful cotton print. Silk napkins from designers such as Ann Gish and Kim Seybert make way for a more sophisticated table accessory. Many upscale designers prefer to layer two napkins of different colors together and put them through a trendy napkin ring, which is not only pretty, it is practical as well. While one napkin can remain on the guest's lap, the other can be used to wipe away food. Finishing a place setting with a attention-grabbing napkin ring is like accessorizing an outfit with a funky bracelet or another piece of interesting jewelry. Kim Seybert offers intricately beaded and floral napkins rings, while designers such as L'Objet offer napkin rings adorned with Swarovski crystals. There is always a napkin ring available for any place setting or occasion. About Pioneer Linens: Since 1912, Pioneer Linens has remained the premier luxury bedding retailer in West Palm Beach, Florida, selling fine linens, table linens, bath accessories and home decor for the bedroom, bathroom, dining, yacht or jet.

Youth and the Outdoors by Josh Morrissey

We all have some kind of passion in the outdoors, whether it is hunting, fishing, camping, or hiking.  The outdoors has something for everyone to enjoy.  Unfortunately, video games, urbanization, and expenses keep many people from experiencing Mother Nature.  I have talked to people from cities that have never been fishing or that had never even seen what the stars really look like because of the city lights.  How sad is that?!

This problem can be solved without much effort.  The reason those people didn’t ever get to experience those great times is because no one introduced them to the outdoors as a child, so they never got an interest in it.  Unfortunately, it is a problem that can be easily fixed but not many people are willing to take the time to do it!  You don’t have to have your own kids to introduce to the outdoors.  There are plenty of opportunities to get youngsters out there!

The first time out hunting can make or break an experience, however. So this means that if you plan on taking a young one out in the woods, you have to make sure they will stay interested.  Squirrel, rabbit, waterfowl, and turkey hunting, as well as bowfishing, are excellent ways to keep them interested because of their fast action. Make sure you scout ahead of time and plan to hunt a good area when you take them out.  If you take the young one out that has high expectations, and then those expectations are not filled, they may decide that they don’t like it and not want to do anymore of it.  It would be like going out fishing and not having a single bite!

CHRISTUS Health Selects MEDSEEK for Consumer Portal, Strategic Partnership
MEDSEEK's Proven Track Record for On-Time Delivery Plays Key Part in Vendor Selection
Once we have our single Web site, we will quickly move to use the MEDSEEK risk assessment tools to build service line awareness and help our patients take a more wellness-focused approach to their own health care.
Birmingham, Ala. March 19, 2010 -- MEDSEEK, the leading provider of healthcare enterprise portal connectivity solutions, announced plans today to develop CHRISTUS Health's consumer portal in a first step toward implementing the eHealth ecoSystemTM by MEDSEEK.
MEDSEEK will work quickly to revitalize the healthcare system's Web presence, which has not seen a major update since CHRISTUS was formed, and consolidate its 18 sites into a single, enterprise-wide consumer portal.

In addition, the solution will allow for future system integration, is scalable for future growth and positions the CHRISTUS network to continue effectively engaging and serving patients, residents and consumers.
"We chose MEDSEEK because of their willingness to meet our aggressive timeframe on the enterprise Web site, consolidating all of our external Web presence to a single platform.

"Once we have our single Web site, we will quickly move to use the MEDSEEK risk assessment tools to build service line awareness and help our patients take a more wellness-focused approach to their own health care."
"We welcome the opportunity to work with CHRISTUS in developing its enterprise-wide consumer portal to replace the network's multiple sites with platforms that are more interactive and user-friendly," stated Peter Kuhn, MEDSEEK CEO. "We also share CHRISTUS Health's vision for a fully-integrated healthcare experience that links patients, physicians and clinicians across the healthcare system."

How To Use Turkey Calls by Tammy Ballew

How To Use Turkey Calls.

Slate calls are one of the easiest calls to learn to use, and picked up quickly by beginners.  Simply pull the striker across the surface of the call for a variety of turkey vocals. A yelp is made by making small circles with the striker. Another very effective call obtained with a slate call is the purr, obtained by dragging the striker slowly across the slate. The cluck can be made by making a quick and sharp pull of the striker on the slate.

Slate Call


Many beginners prefer the box call. The sound is produced by sliding a wooden lid across an open box in a rhythmic motion, thus the caulk, caulk, caulk. The box call also makes an excellent purr by dragging the lid across the open box in a slower, more drawn out motion.

Hoosier Hunter Calls






Mouth calls are harder to learn to use, but there are many DVDs and websites available to help with this technique. The advantage of the mouth call is the hands-free calling and the
reduction of movement likely to alert the turkeys.

Hoosier Custom Calls




The push box or modified box call is another great call for beginning callers. It can be held and operated with one hand. Simply press the end of the striker sticking out of the end of the box in long strokes to get the purr sound, shorter strokes for the yelp call.

Greece Threatens To Go To The IMF For A Rescue!

Greece Threatens To Go To The IMF For A Rescue!

Yesterday's trading saw a number of economic reports hit the wires. Inflation data such as CPI failed to meet expectations by coming in at 0.0% for the month. The previous days PPI also failed to meet expectations suggesting inflation is not an immediate threat for the Feds monetary policy. Also markets keenly focus on the weekly jobs report in an effort to gauge the outcome of the monthly NFP results. Jobless claims came in at 457K for the week. Economist believe that for job growth to resume we need to see jobless claims between 425K and 460K per week. The Philly Fed report was out yesterday as well which printed a positive surprise of 18.9; Philly Fed is a forward looking indicator which measures market conditions and changes in sentiment. Yesterday however the USD strengthened on the back of rumors of an early rate hike but the Fed refused to comment on the matter. USDJPY price action yesterday was between 90.79 - 89.74 with plenty of offers in the 91.00 area and equally matched by bids in the 90.00 area.

In Europe yesterday we see an escalation in tensions between Greece and Germany. Financial Aid is available to Greece by the Econfin only in emergency cases and it will come in the form of coordinated bilateral loans with a premium attached. Which means it is probably cheaper for Greece to go to the IMF for help as it will be able to borrow cheaper than the current lending conditions in the EU or by any emergency lending programs. This dilemma goes to show that the solidarity of the European Union members is at stake and much of the confidence in the Euro money system is based on this assumption of Solidarity. The level of austerity measures needed in the EU by various members are likely to depress activity for some years to come and the ECB is highly unlikely to hike rates any time within the next year. EURUSD price action was between 1.3740 - 1.3585.

In the UK we had the countries public finance figures released which showed an improvement of GBP 7.7 bln due to income tax increases. Public Sector Net borrowing also surprised positively at GBP 12.4 bln. Employment also yesterday dropped by 32.3 K which is a positive sign for the economy as jobs creation maybe back on track. GBPUSD price action yesterday was between 1.5329 - 1.5184.

Today's financial calendar will include the consumer price index report for Canada expected at 0.3% and the Canadian Retail Sales for January expected at 0.6%.

Currency to watch out for: EURUSD & USDJPY

The EURUSD pivot point is at 1.1.3650 with a preference to enter into short positions at 1.3640

The USDJPY pivot point is at 90.10 with a preference to enter long positions at 90.15

Today's calendar and market movers:

Canada Consumer Price Index for February expected at 0.3%

Canada Retail Sales for January expected at 0.6%

Equity Markets:

US equities closed mixed yesterday with the DJIA and the SP500 closing 0.42% and -0.03% respectively. The European bourses were negative yesterday with the FTSE down -0.04% the DAX and the CAC closing positive at -0.20% and -0.50% respectively. The NIKKEI and the HSI at the time of writing is 0.75% and 0.024 respectivel

The Set Up by Joshua Rather

Turkey season is right around the corner and it’s time to break out the turkey decoys and calls.  I have four decoys two hens and two jakes.  The hens are made by Primo’s, ones a regular standard hen and the other is their bobble and sway hen.  One jake is the Primo’s jake-b mobile were you can put a real fan in or the plastic fan they give you.  The other jake is just a standard Primo’s decoy.  Last year I learned a lot about where and how to set up my decoys.  I was putting all four up with the standard jake over top the standard hen and the jake-b mobile and bobble and sway hen off to the side.  I didn’t know that by putting both jakes out I was scaring most young jakes and toms away.  This year I plan on doing things different, I talked to people that are turkey hunting fanatics and they gave me some pointers.  One told me to only set out one jake which he recommended the jake-b mobile and both hens.  He said set up the standard jake and hen together and the other hen off to the side looking like its feeding.  The other suggested just the two hens making it seem like their alone and feeding, which will make the big gobbler I want to strut in more relaxed.  Taking in all of this information made me pay more attention to how turkeys act.  When I see them in the fields around my house I watch them and make memos to myself on how they walk through the field and stay alert to the surroundings.    I do the same when watching TV and reading magazines.

I have my favorites and then sum I just picked up here and there.  My dad always told me it’s good to have a variety of calls because if you use the same call in the same places they will get use to it and not come to it. I have some that people have made for competitions and also some by Primo’s and Hunters Specialties.  I have a few mouth calls but I haven’t mastered them yet but by spring turkey season rolls around I will be ready.  When I call I like to use short yelps and purrs, I like to not call a lot when I have one coming in because some say you can make it sound like you are coming to the tom rather than the tom coming to you.  When I’m trying to locate a turkey in the morning I like to use a hoot owl call and in the afternoon a crow call or by using a turkey call.  I have been practicing a lot and making sure I sound like a turkey.  I don’t want to be out in the field and mess up and scare one off.

I hope to have a good year and for you to have a good year too. So dust off your decoys, break out your calls, because  spring turkey season  is right around the corner, so get set up,  I know I am.

Additionally, the state will cut back Medicaid coverage for adults without children, a move that will shed another 310,000 people from the government insurance rolls. Arizona is faced with the largest state budget deficit in its history at $2.6 billion. Gov. Jan Brewer said more cuts could be on the way if voters do not approve a referendum to increase the state sales tax by 1% to 6.6%.

Immigration Overhaul Calls for Capturing Biometric Data of All US Citizens March 19, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ Part of the overhaul of US immigration policy would call for new Social Security cards that would include biometric information of all citizens. Introduced by Sens. Charles Schumer and Lindsey Graham in an op-ed piece in the Washington Post, the immigration overhaul "blueprint" includes bringing in more temporary workers as the US economy demands. It also calls for all US citizens and legal immigrants to provide fingerprint or other biometric data to be included in their Social Security cards. Employers would use the tamper-proof card and a machine reader to verify via fingerprint or eye scan that the person is both who he says he is and authorized to work in the US, the senators said.

Parents share son's message of eternal love in latest book of poetry

Claudio R. Petrillo and Silvia Knoploch pen the words of their son Ricardo in Poems of Love

WESTPORT, Conn. (MMD Newswire) March 17, 2010 -- Poems of Love is the third book written posthumously by Ricardo K. Petrillo and published by his parents Claudio R. Petrillo and Silvia Knoploch. As in his previous works, Petrillo writes through his father in a process they describe as intuition or "channeling."

In Poems of Love, Petrillo reveals the true meaning of love, in all its forms, including the eternal sentiment that remains, despite the separation between beings at different levels, such as in flesh and in spirit. Furthermore, Petrillo works to expand upon and share the love he learned while on earth, which is the kind of love that sensitizes humans to each others' needs, that makes them better people, that heals the body and soul, that gives meaning to life, and that teaches generosity.

Intending to illustrate how love and relationships endure even after death, Petrillo states that time and space are just illusions, and the deceased need and want to communicate with their loved ones in order to help the ones they left on earth through difficult times. Petrillo's father, Claudio says, "Knowing that this life is but one experience during our spiritual evolution helps people endure trials and tribulations."

Ultimately, Poems of Love carries the message that communication with the departed is possible and above all seeks to offer the hope that love remains eternal. The message of Poems of Love is a continuation of Ricardo Petrillo's first two books, Eternal Bonds of Love and Poems for a Better World. His previous books, which were also channeled, strive to examine Ricardo Petrillo's passing and how our actions on earth are carried on to the afterlife.

Poems of Love is available for sale online at Amazon.com and through additional wholesale and retail channels worldwide.

New Report shows very little interest in the Olympics in Asian countries

23.03.10
PrintE-mail
March 17, 2010 (MMD Newswire) -- Although awareness of the Olympic Games was high, interest was not. In Asia, of those sampled, a total of 91% were aware that the Winter Games were taking place in 2010 and of this subset, a total of 81% were aware that these Games were taking place in Canada. In stark contrast, only 36% of respondents in Asia were very interested in the Winter Games, which is much lower than interest in the Summer Games (52%).

A total of 34% reported to be watching the Winter Games. This means that three quarters did not watch such monumental Olympic moments such as American Evan Lysacek outskating Evengi Plushenko to take gold in men's figure skating, or Sydney Crosby scoring in overtime to reunite the Canadian Men's hockey team with gold. This is despite the fact that more than half of the population predicts they will watch the Olympic Summer Games in two years.

One way to cultivate interest in the Winter Olympic Games in the East is to promote Women's events. Surprisingly, the Winter Games attracts more people who plan to watch women's events than those who plan to watch men's.

Another way to nurture interest in the Winter Games in the East is to promote the Games via television advertising. It was found that the more television a person watched, the more interested they were in the Games.

In conclusion, the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games evoked pride and excitement in people all over the world, but Asia's lack of interest and engagement for the Winter Games can be met with strategic promotions and positioning for the upcoming 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

New non-fiction book grades early educational policies that pass, fail

How Education Can End the Cultural Problem by Jason Deierlein is a guide on the importance of safety and self-importance in mentoring at-risk children

CHARLESTON, S.C. (MMD Newswire) March 17, 2010 -- How Education Can End the Cultural Problem by Jason Deierlein recommends successful parental and governmental methods of mentoring and educating children at an early age, based on the author's documented experiences with second and third grade at-risk students. The author believes education is the key to determining the direction of our country and that unrealistic policies should be abolished while realistic ones should be expanded.

Examples of political policies that Deierlein sees as ineffective and includes in his book are the No Child Left Behind Act, as well as busing children to different schools outside their district. The author instead suggests better equipping and training teachers with the special skills needed for situations that may arise with students from broken homes and offering military or trade schools to students who are unable to excel in traditional school environments. "This book is about improving children's lives and lifting them out of hopeless situations," says Deierlein. "I want to show that just one small change in our education system can make a child's future a whole lot brighter."

How Education Can End the Cultural Problem is a follow-up to Deierlein's Return from a Comatose Mind, which offered ways to avoid complacency, based on the author's recovery from a car accident. "The same hard work and non-complacency has to come from children who live in non-ideal situations. They need to know about children in other countries that would love to be in their situations."

How Education Can End the Cultural Problem is available for sale online at Amazon.com and through additional wholesale and retail channels worldwide.

About the Author
Jason Deierlein graduated from Winthrop University with a degree in political science.

In The Losing of Gordon, Joni James Aldrich discusses how to successfully navigate the painful grieving process through rebirth and newfound purpose

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (MMD Newswire) March 17, 2010 -- The Losing of Gordon: A Beacon Through the Storm Called "Grief" by Joni James Aldrich is about how she survived the loss of her beloved husband Gordon, especially without sufficient closure.

The day after author Aldrich's husband Gordon lost his battle with cancer, she began to rebuild her life, and in The Losing of Gordon, she lays out a roadmap for readers who may be grieving losses themselves. Written around a series of letters she wrote her husband during her grief process, The Losing of Gordon offers a combination of inspirational, somewhat humorous, and heartbreaking messages with the goal to help others persevere through mourning.

Aldrich presents insights on how to overcome "if only" regrets, as well as how to manage being unwillingly single and alone. She discusses the effects of depression and stress and advises her readers on ways to work through them. "People can be reborn through grief," Aldrich says, "without losing the precious memories of a deceased loved one." From knowing what to say (and what not to say) to someone who has suffered their own loss, to tapping into the instincts that can boost survival, The Losing of Gordon seeks to lead the reader in how to gain closure, when to look to counseling, and how to get on with life without being overwhelmed by the past.

The Losing of Gordon: A Beacon Through the Storm Called "Grief" is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.

About the Author
Joni James Aldrich has worked in graphic arts, analysis, communications and public speaking. Following the loss of her husband to cancer, she has continued to write about and educate herself in the areas of cancer, palliative care and grief. She is also the author of The Saving of Gordon: Lifelines to W-I-N Against Cancer, written to help readers survive the struggles of cancer.

Headhunter Hiring Secrets: The Rules of the Hiring Game Have Changed . . . Forever! by Skip Freeman offers insight on the new rules of how to get hired

ATLANTA (MMD Newswire) March 17, 2010 -- Headhunter Hiring Secrets: The Rules of the Hiring Game Have Changed . . . Forever!, a job search guide by career placement professional and headhunter Skip Freeman, gives readers tips and unique techniques which enhance their career transition skills and help them find their next job by teaching job seekers how to become their own headhunter.

According to Freeman, many companies have flawed hiring processes that can often hurt qualified candidates and complicate what Freeman feels is the already difficult search process. In addition, he argues that job-seekers often find themselves at a negotiating disadvantage because they look for new career opportunities only five or six times in their lifetime, while most companies hire every day or every week. Due to these and other factors, Freeman contends that the career search process has changed and job-seekers should dramatically adjust their strategies and tactics in order to be successful in the decade ahead.

"Despite the job seeker's skills and experience within their own profession, many flounder when it comes to finding their next career opportunity," Freeman says. "The secrets revealed in this book illustrate how the rules have changed and how to effectively play by the new rules to win and get hired."

In addition to the book's insight on cover letters, direct mail pieces, interviewing strategies, and how to craft an e-mail and voice mail that will elicit a response, Headhunter Hiring Secrets seeks to teach the reader how to make an effective phone call to a hiring manager, plus much more. Numerous sample letters and scripts are included for review, along with graphs and illustrations to underline key points. Throughout the book, Freeman aims to educate readers on the actions a professional headhunter would take to arm them with trade secrets and industry information to speed up the job search process.

Headhunter Hiring Secrets: the Rules of the Hiring Game Have Changed . . . Forever! is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.

About the Author
Skip Freeman is the president of an Atlanta-area executive search firm specializing in the placement of sales, engineering, manufacturing and research and development professionals. A distinguished graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, he also earned a master's degree in organic chemistry from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a master's degree in business administration from Long Island University.

New story tells how family of seven survived Holocaust

Kiss Every Step by Doris Martin and Ralph S. Martin tells of the survival of Doris Martin's entire family during the Holocaust

ESCONDIDO, Calif. and FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (MMD Newswire) March 17, 2010 -- Kiss Every Step by Doris Martin and Ralph S. Martin reveals the perils, hardships and triumphs of Doris Martin's entire family as they struggled through the Holocaust.

For years, Doris Martin could not speak about her experiences in Poland during the Nazi reign. Now, in Kiss Every Step, her husband, Ralph Martin, has written her story, told in the voices of the people who lived it. When the German army swept into Poland in1939 and occupied her hometown of Bedzin, they burned down the synagogue with an estimated 200 people locked inside and proceeded to murder most of the Jewish population. Yet through strokes of luck and good survival instincts, Martin's entire family miraculously survived.

Now active in telling her story in schools, Martin believes the story of the Holocaust must be kept alive to prevent it from ever happening again. Helping her to recreate her family's history in Kiss Every Step, her husband conducted extensive interviews with members of his wife's family, as well as traveling to significant locations in their backgrounds.

Hebrew literature professor Yigal Schwartz at Ben Gurion University says "Kiss Every Step... is a special story about a family who, amazingly, survived the Holocaust intact (both parents and their five children). The book is written in the different voices of the children of the family, in beautiful, yet non-literary language which retain an authentic feel. Each voice manages to construct a narrative and to tell a stirring and fascinating story."

Kiss Every Step is available for sale online at Amazon.com and other channels.

About the Author
Ralph S. Martin wrote this book about his wife, Doris Martin and her family, who were all Holocaust survivors from Poland. The Martins both received honorary doctoral degrees from Northern Arizona University where they founded the Martin-Springer Institute for applying the lessons of the Holocaust to promote moral courage, altruism and tolerance. The Martin-Springer Center for Conflict Studies and Negotiations at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev was named in honor of them for their support.
