Tri-State Hardwood Flooring Extends Its Capacity to Meet Growing Consumer Demand

West Long Branch, NJ (PRWEB) December 05, 2013

Full-service hardwood floor company, Tri-State Hardwood Flooring, is expanding their repertoire to meet the demand of clients seeking intricate, unique designs on their hardwood flooring. Better known as laser cutting, this process involves the use of a high-powered beam to cut material (wood, acrylic, plastic, fabric, etc.) with computer-controlled parameters. Depending on the material, the laser beam either vaporizes, burns or melts everything in its direct path. Furthermore, laser cutting is an efficient process as it greatly reduces the likelihood of needing finishing work.

In business for over ten years, Tri-State Hardwood Flooring sees the need to offer this service due to immense customer satisfaction:

"Since customer satisfaction is our main priority at Tri-State, we're committed to providing our clients with a range of high-value services that will increase the worth of their homes," says Tri-State Secretary, Talita Santos. "It's a tough market out there, especially in New Jersey, and adding this unique touch will not only make the flooring aesthetically pleasing, but will turn an ordinary home into a prized possession."

With the cutting-edge technology employed by Tri-State, they have the capacity to work with each customer to the fullest extent. From what they've seen so far, customers are partial to three dimensional wood medallions, borders and engravings. However, Tri-State plans to offer a book of designs to choose from in the future, given their connections with graphic design agencies.

Tri-State Hardwood Flooring is a full service hardwood floor company in West Long Branch, NJ that serves clients in the New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania area.

UMD-Led Research Finds Subtle Signs of Water on Faraway Planets

College Park, Md (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

Using the powerful eye of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, two teams of scientists have found faint signatures of water in the atmospheres of five distant planets.

The presence of atmospheric water was reported previously on a few exoplanets – planets orbiting stars beyond our solar system. But this is the first study to conclusively measure and compare the profiles and intensities of these signatures on multiple worlds.

University of Maryland Astronomy Prof. L. Drake Deming led the census of exoplanet atmospheres that produced the new findings. Deming and colleagues characterized two of the five planets in a study published Sept. 10 in Astrophysical Journal. The findings for the three other exoplanets were reported in the same journal today.

"To actually detect the atmosphere of an exoplanet is extraordinarily difficult. But we were able to pull out a very clear signal, and it is water," said Deming, an expert at using data from space and ground-based telescopes to deduce the characteristics of exoplanets, from massive “hot Jupiters” to planets with more Earth-like traits.

"We're very confident that we see a water signature for multiple planets," said Avi Mandell, a planetary scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., and lead author of the journal article published today. "This work really opens the door for comparing how much water is present in atmospheres on different kinds of exoplanets, for example hotter versus cooler ones."

The observations are the latest in a wave of new insights about exoplanets, made possible by new information from Hubble and NASA’s Kepler space telescope, which searches a nearby region of the Milky Way for Earth-sized planets capable of supporting liquid water.

These exceptionally challenging studies can be done only if the planets are spotted while they are passing in front of their stars. Researchers can identify the gases in a planet's atmosphere by determining which wavelengths of the star's light are transmitted and which are partially absorbed. Deming's team employed a new technique with longer exposure times, which increased the sensitivity of their measurements.

In both studies, scientists used Hubble's Wide Field Camera 3 to explore the details of absorption of light through the planets' atmospheres. The observations were made in a range of infrared wavelengths where a pattern that signifies the presence of water would appear if water were present. The teams compared the shapes and intensities of the absorption profiles, and the consistency of the signatures gave them confidence they saw water.

The five planets -- WASP-17b, HD209458b, WASP-12b, WASP-19b and XO-1b -- orbit nearby stars. The strengths of their water signatures varied. WASP-17b, a planet with and HD209458b had the strongest signals. The signatures for the other three planets, WASP-12b, WASP-19b and XO-1b, also are consistent with water.

The Sept. 10 research paper described findings for HD209458b and XO-1b, while today’s publication describes WASP-12b, WASP-17b and WASP-19b.

The five planets are hot Jupiters, massive worlds that orbit close to their host stars. The researchers were initially surprised that all five appeared to be hazy. But Deming and Mandell noted that other researchers are finding evidence of haze around exoplanets.

"These studies, combined with other Hubble observations, are showing us that there are a surprisingly large number of systems for which the signal of water is either attenuated or completely absent," said Heather Knutson of the California Institute of Technology, a co-author on Deming's paper. "This suggests that cloudy or hazy atmospheres may in fact be rather common for hot Jupiters."

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).”
