New York City, NY (PRWEB) December 21, 2012

After the release of its newest software package, Ultimate Typing, feedback from customers and reviewers alike emphasized the same thing: there is always room for improvement. Anyone interested in learning more and becoming better at whatever it is they are doing is all too aware of this popular saying. Because the same also holds true for those who think they already have their typing skills down pat, there's always the possibility for increased speed and accuracy. As many software reviews have noted, Ultimate Typing software meets that need, because it's not just typing for beginners, its also for those who are in the more advanced levels.

Making one software package appropriate for many different skill levels can be difficult, but eReflect's developers have done it. Those typists who are concerned about their speed can definitely benefit from the software. Even a casual blogger or part-time writer will enjoy increased productivity with increased speeds. With this in mind, Ultimate Typing has integrated all sorts of trackers to make sure that no detail is missed when it comes to the users progress towards a faster word count.

By using Ultimate Typing's individualized lesson plans, fast typists can still become faster typists, even if they already have enviable typing skills. Of course, the bigger and more important benefit for any typist is that they will be able to improve their efficiency at work. Better typing skills means better typing speed and accuracy. In effect, this translates to less mistakes and faster progress with the work pace. That's why Ultimate Typing is recommended not only for people who have typing-heavy jobs, but for anyone who uses a computer during their work days.

There is a reason why typing skills are given prime importance by employers when they're searching for new employees. That's because having this ability generally means that the employee is able to work faster. Independent software reviews of the product confirm that by using the lessons and exercises provided in the Ultimate Typing software package, the user will quickly learn how to type without having to constantly look down at the keyboard. The personalized exercises allow the user to progress at their own pace, with effective, targeted practice sessions designed to meet each user's individual typing goals.

Ultimate Typing does all this, with as little as seven minutes a day of practice required for the user to get started on the road to better typing abilities.

North Carolina Rockers THE FIFTH Combine Sex, Drugs and Rock n’ Roll for Upcoming EMG/Universal Debut


Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) June 30, 2009

North Carolina rock band The Fifth has signed with EMG/Universal and will release their debut album Confessions of Man on July 28, 2009. The band has also signed an exclusive long-term management agreement with partners Ricky B. Rogers & Ray Ware of Nashville-based Fused Management, home to all-girl rock band Atomic Blonde, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Bob Carlisle and more.

"I am impressed with this band's commitment to their fans," states Ware. "They instinctively understand how to give their audience what they want." Rogers adds, "This band is poised to erupt nationally because they understand that rock n roll should remain first and foremost about fun."

The Fifth may be new to the national scene, but since 2001, the full-throttled foursome has tore up the North Carolina club circuit in support of two full-length independent CDs, plus a pair of EPs. And it was no surprise to their loyal fans when they started to appear in the national spotlight.

Millions of television viewers have heard the group's song "Even To This Day" on a recent "Grey's Anatomy" commercial, as well as two separate Dodge Ram commercials in which the band was featured. Add in a Monster Energy band partnership and opening slots for the likes of Nickelback, Hinder, Staind, Poison's CC DeVille, Crossfade, Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Sevendust, Puddle of Mudd, Filter, Saliva, Hoobastank, Rev Theory and many more, and The Fifth is well on its way to being a household name.

"The culture of the band is what's special," injects front man Roy Cathey, who first found fame as leader of MCA act Cold Sweat. "Our hometown of Fayetteville is a military town, which means people come see us and then spread the word all over the country. We've worked our asses off for the past seven and a half years and we're damn lucky so many soldiers take our music with them wherever they go."

Adds bassist B-Man, "We've actually heard from guys who've gone over to Baghdad and spray painted The Fifth's logo over pictures of Saddam Hussein. They write and say how our music helped them get through the week, which is why we make sure when they come back to see a show, we give them the biggest bang we can."

Like the good old days of Motley Crue, Guns N' Roses and KISS, The Fifth is committed to an incendiary live show that thrives on the personalities of all the players. While so many of today's bands have become faceless and generic, this foursome packs plenty of charisma into an unrelenting electric upheaval.

"We pride ourselves as being a modern rock band, but we love the big shows of yesterday," confirms drummer Marc Anthony. "We have the sound of today, but with the connection of an old school rock show. Everyone lets themselves shine through on stage and you can tell we're all having a blast letting our identities come through."

Despite the larger than life personas, the guys' first priority when they hang up their instruments for the night is to meet their fans. Not only is The Fifth comprised of the most approachable guys in the music business, but they're committed to providing a sense of enjoyment and empowerment to everyone along the way.

"Everybody loves a good rock show," affirms Roy. "We write songs people identity with and that can help put a smile on someone's face, plus we throw a little sex, drugs, rock n' roll and any other bit of debauchery in for some extra fun."

Bobby Clampetts Impact Zone Training System Now Available to Golfers Everywhere


Bonita Springs, FL (PRWEB) December 19, 2012

The Impact Zone Training System by Impact Zone Golf, the innovative approach to golf instruction created by acclaimed PGA Tour winner and popular television golf analyst Bobby Clampett, is now available for personal download and ready to be offered in specially packaged DVD form.

This transformational system of learning and teaching golf which has flourished around the success of Clampetts book, The Impact Zone can be downloaded to any computer or smartphone. By visiting http://www.impactzonegolf.com golfers everywhere now can have Clampetts complete-game instruction with them wherever and whenever they need it. The online downloadable product is $ 79.

Also, The Impact Zone Training System will be available in a set of four DVDs in the coming weeks, each set priced at $ 89. Check http://www.impactzonegolf.com for earliest availability.

Clampett founded Impact Zone Golf in 2009 largely in response to golf professionals who wanted to teach the system, as well as golfers who inquired about taking lessons, based on what they learned in the book.

With the new online digital product and the DVD set, my hope is we will reach golfers around the world to improve their game, Clampett said.

The Impact Zone Training System completely changes the way golfers and instructors perceive and interpret each golfers swing. Clampett challenges the widely accepted theory of golf instruction that is too concerned with a golfers swing style, while overlooking its results and effectiveness. Impact-Based instruction puts the emphasis where it should be, Clampett professes: on consistently good shots and lower scores.

In both the new online downloadable product and DVD set, Clampett offers tips and drills designed to produce more consistent golf shots and explains in detail the Five Key Dynamics to becoming a great ball-striker:

1. The Flat Left Wrist

2. Four Inches in Front of the Ball Swing Bottom

3. Loading the Club on the Backswing

4. Club Head Lag

5. Straight Plane Line

Another segment of the presentation centers on an actual golf clinic given by Clampett, who teaches amateur golfers about The Impact Zone Training System and why it renders swing style teaching irrelevant. Using the examples of great champions, such as Lee Trevino, Jim Furyk, Dustin Johnson and Corey Pavin, Clampett explains why the only truly important concept is impact. And he teaches all golfers, regardless of skill or handicap, how to improve their impact until it is consistent and consistently good.

For more details about The Impact Zone Training System and to order the online downloadable product or set of four DVDs, visit http://www.impactzonegolf.com, call 1-877-243-8718, or email info(at)impactzonegolf(dot)com.

The RealHelp iPhone App Can Help Keep Teenagers Safer.


Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2012

The RealHelp App gives teenagers another way to reach out for help when they need it.

Parents cant guarantee the safety of their teenage children, but with RealHelp they can give them one more option to reach out for help. RealHelp exists for those situations between which a user might call a friend or family member for help, and those where a call to 911 is appropriate. With the swipe of an alert button, RealHelp sends dozens of push notifications to preselected emergency contacts, informing them that the RealHelp user is in trouble. From there, those contacts can see the users location, hear live streaming audio, and see any pictures taken by the alert instigator. It gives all of those people everything they need to help. They can head to the alert location to intervene and extract the RealHelp user, or they can listen and direct emergency services to the location if it sounds appropriate. Just the act of involving so many people may be all that it takes to prevent crimes that wouldnt take place if there were witnesses present. While the RealHelp App is useful for anybody, its especially useful to teenagers in that it makes them more likely to seek help and get a response.

With RealHelp, a teenager can make sure that alerts only go out to people that he or she is comfortable seeking help from. There are three color coded alert levels, red, orange, and yellow, and the user can quickly and easily set which of their contacts gets alerts at which level. Just like a teenager might call a friend for help, RealHelp allows that teenager to reach all of his or her friends for help. If the situation is urgent, that can make all of the difference. In the time that it takes for one persons phone to start ringing, RealHelp can have pushed dozens of push notifications and Facebook wall posts inviting friends to get involved and help out. By the time that a user could have reached voice mail, they could already have a friend messaging them within the RealHelp alert. Whats important though is that the user trusts all of those people on his or her contact list enough to call out for help. While parents can insist on being on that list, they cant insure that their child wont remove them from some alert levels. While parents may prefer to be notified on every level when their child is in trouble, they probably prefer that their child seeks help without hesitation rather than stalling until its too late.

The creators of RealHelp stress the importance of not using RealHelp as a substitute for 911, but want it to be available where teenagers have reasons not to call 911. Everyone wants their children to be able to call 911 and get quick emergency assistance when in trouble. Unfortunately, teenagers are prone to be engaged in various illegal activities. In fact, it seems more likely that a teenager will need to seek help while involved with underage drinking, recreational drugs, or just out after a citys curfew. For all of those situations, a teenager has to weigh the legal consequences of calling the police against the importance of getting fast reliable emergency assistance. Just hesitating may mean waiting for the situation to go from bad to worse. With RealHelp, a teenager can call out for help without worrying about legal consequences. Even where a teenager might eventually called 911, he or she can use RealHelp preemptively. That low barrier to action means that the user can can reach out for help earlier, and even keep the situation from progressing to the point where 911 is appropriate. That RealHelp alert also increases the chances that others who are listening in will call 911 if the situation requires it.

You can learn more about RealHelp App at RealHelpApp.com, and get the fully featured version free for your iPhone at the iTunes App Store. The RealHelp App is entirely supported through user donations, and is ad-free.

About The RealHelp App

The RealHelp App heads off potential emergency situations by instantly notifying dozens of preselected friend and broadcasting audio, location, and pictures to them in real time. RealHelp is available fully featured and free for the iPhone in the iTunes App Store. Its supported through in-app donations by RealHelp users. RealHelp is ad-free since ad servers would slow down the app. Theres a graphic guide to how it works here: How RealHelp Works, and plenty more information at RealHelpApp.com.

As stated by Dr. OBlock, As an educator living at the beginning of the Information Age, Ive seen both the educational potential of Information and Communications Technology and the damage its caused humanity. In addition to ACFEIs goal of educating the forensics world of iPredators, it is also vital to educate the pediatric mind.

Child abuse, whether perpetrated by a child or adult, is detrimental to all aspects of their development following them into adulthood. Stated by Dr. Nuccitelli, Dr. Internet Safety was developed to hinder the natural instincts of children to rebel against adults attempting to teach them a caution. Instead of Dr. Nuccitelli educating the community on iPredator dynamics and tech. predator profiling, Dr. Internet Safety discusses how uncool & immature it is to tweet or post how fat, ugly or stupid a fellow student is in their Facebook profile.

Dr. Nuccitelli has created a variety of creative templates to use by broadcast & internet radio and online & offline print media including Ask Dr. Internet Safety, Dr. Internet Safetys Top 10 List and On the iCouch with Dr. Internet Safety geared to a pediatric consumer base. In return for Dr. Internet Safetys volunteer time and services, Dr. Nuccitelli requests that the host media outlet encourage their readers, listeners or viewers to work within their communities to design strategies reducing victimization of children using Information and Communications Technology.

About iPredator Inc. & Robert O'Block:

Robert OBlock is founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International (ACFEI). ACFEI is the largest professional forensic education organization in the world and honored to have as its advisory board members many of the top forensic experts of the 21st century.

Medical Malpractice Lawyers in Michigan Create United States Steroid Injection Fungal Meningitis Outbreak Infographic


Southfield, Michigan (PRWEB) October 23, 2012

The Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. medical malpractice lawyers in Michigan recently created an infographic on the recent United States meningitis outbreak linked to steroid injections. The infographic was created to aid those victims who are currently suffering from meningitis due to the injection, as well as make others who have also received the injection aware of the symptoms of this disease, and how it spreads throughout the body. Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. is a Southfield law firm that is actively investigating the legal rights of patients who have been injured or died due to the meningitis outbreak due to steroid injection.

The United States Steroid Injection Fungal Meningitis Outbreak infographic visually displays the most recent statistics of injury cases and deaths reported due to fungal meningitis linked to steroid injection throughout the U.S. (both an U.S. map and chart are used), a description of the disease, the signs and symptoms of fungal meningitis, as well as where the needle is injected into a patient who receives the medication. The statistics reported on the infographic are recent counts reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Fungal meningitis can develop after a fungus spreads through the bloodstream from somewhere else in the body, as a result of the fungus being introduced directly into the central nervous system, or from an infected body site infection next to the central nervous system.

According to NBC News, all infected patients received injection with preservative-free methylprednisolone acetate prepared by New England Compounding Center (NECC), located in Framingham, MA. The injections were shipped to 23 states and nearly 14,000 patients have been given this potentially tainted injection of pain medication.

The CDC reports 257 cases of patients who suffer from the fungal infection linked to steroid injections has been reported thus far. 20 reports of death to a patient from fungal meningitis due to steroid injection in the U.S. have also been reported.

Tennessee has the highest amount of cases reported with 63, following the State of Michigan with 49 cases, and Virginia with 37 cases. Tennessee also has the highest numbers of deaths reported (8 deaths), with the State of Michigan to follow in the same sequence (4 deaths).
