End the Nightmare GOD TV call to action against Human Trafficking


Plymouth, Devon (PRWEB UK) 15 January 2014

“20.9 million people are victims of human trafficking. 27% of victims detected globally are children. There is a 1%-2% chance of a victim being rescued.” - International Labour Organisation – (ilo.org)

GOD TV is broadcasting a compelling ‘Human Trafficking Season’ throughout January 2014 to create awareness about one of the most evil practices in the world today. “The Church cannot remain silent on this issue,” said GOD TV co-founder and CEO, Rory Alec. “We need to speak out with one voice and each do our part to end the nightmare of Human Trafficking.”

Some of the advocate groups being featured on GOD TV during the Human Trafficking Season include: Exodus Cry (Benjamin Nolot); The A21 Campaign (Christine Caine); Love 146 (Rob Morris); Agape International Missions (Don Brewster) and XP Missions (Patricia King).

The network is airing films, documentaries, and conference sessions that seek to find solutions to Human Trafficking, as well as its own original material. Being interviewed on GOD TV’s flagship series, In Depth, are Ben Cooley of Hope for Justice in the UK and Danielle Strickland of Stop The Traffik, Canada, with presenter, Liz Ray.

Human Trafficking Season on GOD TV this January includes the following films:

    Nefarious - Merchant of Souls, an award-winning production that exposes the extreme wickedness of sex slavery. Produced by Exodus Cry’s Benjamin Nolot;
    The Pink Room, a heart-wrenching movie that offers hope, a story of redemption, rescue, restoration, reintegration and prevention set in Cambodia;
    Sex & Money, a gripping documentary that follows a group of students travelling across the USA on "A National Search for Human Worth".

Broadcast times can be found on god.tv, where the programmes are also available via video on demand. (god.tv/humantrafficking/vod) Viewers are being asked to sign a pledge to end trafficking that includes prayer and other practical steps like taking a stand against pornography.

A joint social media effort is also underway on Facebook and Twitter using the hashtag, #EndTheNightmare. GOD TV and the many advocate organisations who have provided programming are creating a buzz as viewers share or retweet about this month’s programming.

“As a Christian Television broadcaster I believe it’s imperative to illuminate this issue as God is calling many people to put an end to Human Trafficking,” said GOD TV Co-founder and Director of Television, Wendy Alec. “He is calling us to rise up like Abraham Lincoln and William Wilberforce did in their day, and help eradicate modern-day slavery.”

Other programmes coming up this month in the Human Trafficking Season focus on:

    Exodus Cry's Abolition Summit where Don Brewster of Agape International Missions examines how believers should respond to both the victims and perpetrators;
    Annie Lobert, the founder of Hookers for Jesus shares how she was once trapped in the sex industry, but is now free;

Study: Genital Ulcers Increase Risk of HIV; polyDNA Recommends Gene-Eden-VIR against the Latent Herpes Virus (HSV)


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) December 02, 2013

Genital ulcers increase the risk of HIV. A genital ulcer is an open sore in the genital area. The herpes simplex virus is the most common cause of genital ulcers (1). “In the United States, most young, sexually active patients who have genital, anal, or perianal ulcers have either genital herpes or syphilis…genital herpes is the most prevalent of these diseases.” This is according to the CDC in a page last updated on January 28, 2011 (2).

This observation prompted the CDC to recommend HIV testing of everyone with genital ulcers. “HIV testing should be performed on all persons with genital, anal, or perianal ulcers who are not known to have HIV infection (2).”

Researchers wrote that “Early and prompt therapy may decrease the risk of transmission of the infectious agent to others (1).” polyDNA points out that preventing an outbreak can prevent the development of genital ulcers, and the risk of HIV.

“Both HSV-1 and HSV-2 can cause genital herpes and genital ulcer disease. We recommend Gene-Eden-VIR to target the latent HSV-1 and HSV-2.” Mike Evans, polyDNA

A study published on August 12, 2013 in the peer reviewed, medical journal Pharmacology & Pharmacy, in a special edition on Advances in Antiviral Drugs, showed that Gene-Eden-VIR reduced herpes symptoms. Study authors wrote that, “Individuals infected with the herpes virus…reported a safe decrease in their symptoms following treatment with Gene-Eden-VIR (3).” The study authors also wrote that, “We observed a statistically significant decrease in the severity, duration, and frequency of symptoms (3).”

World War Z Faces Off Against 2013: Infected Wars in Apple’s iTunes Games Market


Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

June is shaping up to be a AAA zombie apocalypse month in Apple's iTunes Store - which game will be victorious? Two much anticipated mobile games for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod will be going head to head in Apples iTunes games market. Rarely do you have two AAA games being released so close together in the same genre. This may spell doom for the developers but fans of the zombie genre will surely be pleased.

In one corner you have Austin, TX based Action Mobile Games releasing 2013: Infected Wars in June. 2013: Infected Wars is the first ever full co-op action horror game for mobile devices. Displaying cutting edge graphics more familiar to console and pc gamers than mobile devices, James Petty President of Action Mobile Games says, We want to bridge the gap between the gaming experience console and pc game players have enjoyed for many years and bring that to mobile gamers by pushing Apples devices to their limits.

Many mobile games offer the ability to play with friends in limited game modes but surprisingly no mobile game studio until now has invested the time and resources to create a full co-op campaign like with 2013: Infected Wars. When asked if he thinks the mobile market will reward such a huge development risk James Petty says, I believe the mobile gaming community will show their support for a true co-op game experience with our feature set in such a fun genre, making our two years of development worth it in the end.

2013: Infected Wars Boasts Many Features Such As:

Study: EBV Mononucleosis Risk Increased by Smoking and Family Size; polyDNA Recommends Gene-Eden-VIR Against the Latent EBV


Rochester, NY (PRWEB) July 21, 2013

A new study has shown that people living in large households or in families with smokers are at a significantly higher risk of Epstein Barr Virus (EBV) infection. EBV is well-known as the virus that can cause Mononucleosis, also known as the kissing disease.(1)

This rise in the risk of infection is due to the fact that smoking harms the immune system, allowing the EBV to attack the body and infect it more effectively. Further, people living in crowded homes have a higher chance of coming into contact with someone already infected with the virus. These crowded conditions can also lead to infectious mononucleosis since Persons with infectious mononucleosis may be able to spread the infection to others for a period of weeks. (CDC) (2)

The researchers wrote that Environmental factors associated with socioeconomic status, such as household crowding or use of public transportation, could contribute directly to exposure risk. Suppressed immune function as a result of stress, poor nutrition, smoking, or other environmental exposures could increase susceptibility to infections given equal levels of exposure. (1)

The CDC notes that In the United States, as many as 95% of adults between 35 and 40 years of age have been infected. And, When infection with EBV occurs during adolescence or young adulthood, it causes infectious mononucleosis 35% to 50% of the time. (2)

EBV establishes a lifelong dormant (latent) infection in some cells of the body's immune system and can lead to various diseases over time. How can an infected person help prevent the latent EBV from causing problems later in life?

polyDNA recommends that individuals concerned about the risk of EBV infection stop smoking. In addition, because EBV is so common, everyone should consider using Gene-Eden-VIR, a natural anti-EBV remedy, to boost the immune system against the latent virus.

Gene-Eden-VIR recently underwent a post marketing clinical study in which 70% of Gene-Eden-VIR users reported a reduction in viral symptoms.(3) The results of this study can seen here: http://www.cbcd.net/Gene-Eden-VIR-Clinical-Study.php

The key to your health is to reduce the level of latent viruses in your body to harmless levels. Dr. Hanan Polansky

dnsfly BY UX World Helps Companies Defend Against Attacks on DNS, the Clouds Biggest Security Risk


New York, NY (PRWEB) October 09, 2012

UX WORLD, experts in Cloud security, is launching the first to market DNS administration solution configured for the CA AppLogic virtualization platform, in addition to versions available for VMWare ESXI, Xen and Amazon Web Services (AWS). dnsfly is an enterprise-class DNS and DHCP management solution, offered as both a physical and virtual DNS Appliance.

dnsfly is the just right solution for enterprises that are taking applications to the Cloud. It is more secure than too small products that, for example, dont offer DNSSEC compliance (the DNS security extensions) or lack sophisticated control of DNS, and is a more targeted solution than DNS appliances sold by larger companies. dnsfly is a purpose-built appliance optimized for security, but from a company that offers responsive support, the option of management of installation, and experts in DNS who can customize dnsfly to a companys specifications through the products open APIs.

Large companies networks vary quote a bitthey are quite heterogeneousin terms of network elements, functionality, scope of virtualization, and the requirements of applications running. Its important that the DNS solution, which is at the core of the network, can be optimized for a companys particular needs and configuration. UX WORLD knows DNS and our experts can significantly reduce DNS-related IT overhead while at the same time improving DNS security.

--Nick D, UX WORLD COO

dnsfly is built for security. It not only delivers sophisticated yet easy to use tools to manage DNS through a graphical user interface, dnsfly is also optimized for security. dnsfly uses a hardened Linux operating system. It has been stripped, meaning all unneeded ports and services in the OS have been closed, limiting potential points of attack. DNSSEC signed zones and a jailed environment help protect DNS from being exploited. Role-based access gives managers more control.

Domain Name System (DNS) servers translate IP addresses such as 10.10.1.1 into URLs such as http://www.uxworld.com. DNS security is critical because when DNS goes down, a companys Web site, VoIP telephony, internet access and business critical applications such as CRM may go down. Additionally, a business customers may be targeted in DNS attacks, misdirecting them to hackers Web sites, or phishing for sensitive customer information. dnsfly helps companies reduce the threat of nefarious attacks and outages of their dependant applications.

About UX WORLD

UX WORLD offers a targeted and secure solution to manage DNS and DHCP. This purpose-built application is being offered as a physical device or a virtual appliance. The OVA distribution is compatible with VMware ESXi, CA AppLogic, Xen, and Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Patent Assistance Worldwide Helps Novice Inventors Defend Against Patent Trolls

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) July 13, 2012

A patent troll is an individual or a company that seeks to profit from someone elses idea or invention. Historically, patent trolls have been despised by large corporations, particularly technology firms, which depend upon the maintenance and protection of their own intellectual property. According to a recent article by The Wall Street Journal, that might be changing, with more and more large corporations taking pre-emptive action against patent trolls, essentially using their own strategies against them. As the Journal reports, it is becoming increasingly common for tech companies to [spin] off their patents into separate entities, with the aim of pressuring other companies to license the technology and suing when they cant reach deals. While this may be an effective strategy for large corporations, it is beyond the more limited resources and abilities of novice, independent inventors, which is why more of these small-scale innovators are turning to the services of Patent Assistance Worldwide.

Patent Assistance Worldwide is an international firm that seeks to provide resources to inventors, particularly those inventors who cant afford to contend with patent trolls all on their own. According to company spokesman Mark Fallows, the strategies implemented by large technology firms are simply not practical for lone inventors. If youre Google or Apple, then the strategies discussed in this article make perfect sense, says Fallows. However, implementing them is something that will likely require a team of patent attorneys, working around the clock. If youre a novice inventor, simply seeking to protect your intellectual property rights, then this just isnt realistic.

That, according to Fallows, is where Patent Assistance Worldwide comes into play. Our firm is zealous for helping inventors protect their ideas, and ultimately make money off those ideas, confirms Fallows. Our great passion is for extending those services and resources to aspiring or new inventors who really need them.

Fallows is quick to point out that Patent Assistance Worldwide is not a legal firm. It is more like a clearinghouse of patent-related services, he explains. We do not have in-house lawyers, but we do have a network of many top patent attorneys, and we can help novice inventors obtain the services of these top attorneys, typically at a significantly discounted rate. Enlisting a patent attorney is both necessary and expensive for new inventors, Fallows continues, but Patent Assistance Worldwide seeks to make the process more accessible.

The company does not limit its clearinghouse services to legal assistance. Patent Assistance Worldwide also offers the services of patent researchers, illustrators, and marketing professionals, notes Fallows. The bottom line is that we want to help inventors protect their bright ideas, and also to profit off of them as much as possible, as easily as possible.

ABOUT:

Patent Assistance Worldwide is a clearinghouse of services geared toward inventors seeking to protect or market their intellectual property. The company places clients in touch with professional illustrators, patent researchers, and patent attorneys, and typically offers inventors more affordable rates than traditional legal firms can offer.

Game Designer Richard Garfield Pledges to Defend Earth against Flying Eyebats


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 26, 2012

Game designer Richard Garfield, best known for his award-winning collectible card game Magic: the Gathering, has moved into the realm of location-based mobile gaming with his latest project, Map Monsters. Garfield said that the inspiration for the game came from two main sources: a realization that location-based mobile technology could open new vistas in play experiences, and the fact that Earth is currently beset by hideous monsters stealing our possessions, and that a corps of trained monster-fighters is desperately needed to retrieve them.

The game is being developed by BodSix, a team of artists and developers with experiences at Amazon, Apple, Pixar, and Wizards of the Coast. BodSix recently launched a Kickstarter fundraising campaign for the project, with rewards for backers that include a game night in Seattle with Richard Garfield, and hand-drawn fantasy poster maps of their real-life neighborhoods by Lands of Ice and Fire cartographer Jonathan Roberts.

Map Monsters players take the role of Monsternauts tasked with finding and capturing a variety of monsters from another world who have stolen items from our communities, and who repel attempts to reclaim them with powers such as slime and fire. Using Earth as a game board, the in-game map corresponds with a players actual location: the more that players travel and build networks of friends, the richer their game experiences will be. They may find items or monster spawning grounds hidden in their neighborhood bakery or a local landmark, and can eventually build roads to other cities to explore new areas with different monsters and treasures.

Many location-based games require players to travel to a lot of different places just to enjoy the game, which doesnt match most peoples daily lives, said Garfield during a conversation in a Seattle coffee shop, where slime-coated creatures were busily unbolting the espresso machine and dragging it out the door. Map Monsters is designed with a blend of play that rewards playing from different locations, but also allows players to enjoy the game from just a few locations, whether its home, work or school.

Garfield said that he and BodSix will continually add surprising, quirky new monsters and collectibles to the Map Monsters world. He also revealed plans for special events in which players can search for hidden caches of treasure, build monuments with their friends, and defeat massive invasions of monsters to earn unique badges.

BodSix CEO Jeff Dixon said, Its an honor to work with legendary game designer Richard Garfield as he blazes new trails in mobile gaming. I just wish our work laptops didnt keep disappearing into a Wonderland-like parallel world populated with monsters. That rarely happened when I was at Amazon.

About Richard Garfield

Among the worlds best known game designers, Richard Garfield leads game design at BodSix. For his first professional game, Magic: The Gathering, Richard was granted the patent on trading card gamesnow a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide. Since that time, he has produced many award winning trading card games and board games including Netrunner, Robo Rally, What Were You Thinking, and Filthy Rich. In the realm of computer gaming he has been a game designer and consultant for Electronic Arts and Microsoft. Richard was a professor of mathematics at Whitman College before he left to help start Wizards of the Coast, the original publisher of Magic, now currently owned by Hasbro. He holds a Ph.D. in Mathematics at the University of Pennsylvania.

Daily Safety Check recommends applying Microsoft, Adobe Security Updates immediately, as antivirus software will not protect against latest threats


(PRWEB) April 26, 2012

Adobe and Microsoft both issued critical security updates this week to plug security holes in their products. Customers that do not apply these updates will be vulnerable to hacker attacks even if they have up-to-date antivirus software on their computers.

One of the real misconceptions out there among home computer users is that if they have antivirus software on their computer, they will be safe from cyber attacks. says Jim McKenney, Chief Technology Officer of Daily Safety Check, which automatically applies these security updates every day. One of the main ways that cyber criminals access computers is through these security holes in out-of-date software.

Daily Safety Check recently published a White Paper of a major botnet, showing that 82% of infected computers had antivirus software installed. This is the next frontier in home computer security, says Mckenney. People dont have the expertise or the time to apply regular updates and constantly check security settings. We created Daily Safety Check because we needed a universal approach, with layers of security, that wouldnt require a lot of work or expertise from home users.

To interview Jim McKenney or find out more about computer security issues, please contact media(at)dailysafetycheck(dot)com.

When Your Biological Clock Strikes Two Minutes to Midnight : A Psychologist Recounts Her Long Battle Against Infertility in New Medical Memoir


New York, New York (PRWEB) February 29, 2012

Eight babies are born in the U.S. every single minute. Conception, gestation, and birth would seem the most natural things in the world, but that may be difficult to comprehend for the 7.3 million individuals in the U.S. whose eggs and sperm arent quite up to the task. Infertility is an existential slap in the face. The lengths people will go to get around it is the bittersweet story of Grade A Baby Eggs: An Infertility Memoir (Epigraph Books, paper, $ 15.95), Victoria Hopewells perceptive new memoir of the years she spent hoping technology would come to the rescue.

Hopewell, a clinical psychologist who held academic appointments at the medical schools of both Harvard and Cornell, paints a gimlet-eyed portrait of the in-vitro fertilization industry, a wild-west baby business where womens eggs are bought and sold over the Internet, and prices are based on everything from the donors SAT scores to how much youre willing to pay to make sure your baby is technically Jewish.

There are more than 100,000 IVF attempts each year, says Victoria Hopewell, who went from hoping to use her own eggs at the age of forty-four, to purchasing someone elses eggs. Each in-vitro attempt costs, on average, more than $ 12,000. Thats a multibillion dollar-a-year infertility industry. And its virtually unregulated. Which means, as Hopewell points out in her enjoyable style, that the fortune youre paying for eggs from a Cal Tech professor might really be coming from a woman who couldnt make it through high school. Or, as in Hopewells case, that Jewish egg you need to carry on your childless second-husbands eighth-generation line may really be coming from an OShea or a Montebello. Reading Grade A Baby Eggs not only taught me more than I ever knew about today's fascinating fertility subcultures, says author Paul De Angelis, but brought me an entirely new insight into how commercialized even so sacred an activity as human reproduction can become. This memoir is funny, sad, touching, always human, never dull.

As much as it shines a needed spotlight on the fertility business, Grade A Baby Eggs, is at bottom, a human story, the ups and downs and all-arounds of a forty-four-year-old woman trying to make everybody happy. Hopewell does a wonderful job of inviting the reader into her second marriage to a once-confirmed bachelor, the last in a long line of descendants of an illustrious Jewish scholar. Can Hopewell navigate the emotional shoals of giving up on your own tired eggs, and implicitly, your youth? Can she manage her two daughters expectations about their new step-dad? Does she even have the right to complain, given her two natural children, about the roller-coaster ride of treating infertility? Hopewell manages to address it all with insight and good humora testament to the keen observational skills demanded of her profession. That she also does it with style and graceas graceful as one can be, anyway, with ones feet up in stirrupsspeaks more to her charm and her life-affirming optimism.

How did it go? Did she ever have that child? Hopewell writes so vividly that anyone who's started reading Grade A Baby Eggs will just have to finish it to see how it all pans out.

An exceedingly honest examination of the reality of infertility and the emotionally traumatic experiences involved. . . . Well-written and thoughtful. . . . Readers will gain a new understanding of how infertility affects ones family, social circle, career and self-perception. A candid, valuable look at infertility.

Kirkus Reviews

The author, a clinical psychologist who has held academic appointments at the medical schools of both Harvard and Cornell, reveals the truth about the in-vitro fertilization industry. . . . For anyone encountering this problem, this book must be read.
