Hangtime Fitness is Helping Canadian Educators Fight Obesity in Children

Hangtime Fitness is hosting Canada’s first ever Youth Fitness Summit May 4th and 5th at York University to unite Educators and the youth fitness industry by providing a solid leadership and defining voice in youth fitness education.

Mar. 29, 2013 - TORONTO, Canada -- Hangtime Fitness is Helping Canadian Educators Fight Obesity in Children

Health and Physical Educators Focus of Youth Fitness Summit

Hangtime Fitness is hosting Canada’s first ever Youth Fitness Summit May 4th and 5th at York University to unite HPE Educators with the youth fitness industry by providing a solid leadership and defining voice within the field of youth fitness education.

Toronto, March 27th, 2013 - Over the last decade or so, we have witnessed the deterioration of our kids’ physical activity and fitness levels to the point where health risks for kids have skyrocketed.

Experienced HPE teachers accustomed to teaching groups of students who for the most part were physically active by nature, have suddenly found they’re working with kids who have limited or no physical activity experience whatsoever.

Many HPE teachers, and school officials, just weren’t ready, willing or quick enough to adapt to changing realities and the growing threats of youth inactivity and obesity. What once worked to build a successful school fitness program, no longer does. And what once worked to engage students and bolster participation has become ineffective in light of today’s fitness research and training and development methods.

David Kittner, Director of Education for Hangtime Fitness, states “In the history of the youth fitness industry, there has never been a greater convergence of need, awareness, desire, low barrier opportunity, product education, and voids in the lives of our youth waiting to be filled.  

He goes on to say that “as an HPE teacher there has never been a better time than right now to launch, re-invent, grow, expand and strengthen the fitness programs within their schools.”

Hangtime Fitness has assembled several of the youth fitness industry’s top leading experts including keynote speaker and author of Spark, Dr. John Ratey, to help HPE Educators become the best at delivering youth fitness programs within their schools.

Hangtime Fitness was founded by fitness equipment professionals who saw the need to get back to basics, and to get people active in a fun, group environment. Our mission is to bring the leaders of the youth fitness and education industry together and raise the lev el of fitness education and coaching we are providing for the youth in our schools.

Dewey Street, First-of-its-kind Home For Crafting In Las Vegas, Opens Its Doors

Family business is only in the area to offer wide variety of crafting lessons and long arm quilting

Mar. 29, 2013 - LAS VEGAS -- LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- Three generations of love for crafting are the foundation for the newly opened Dewey Street, a store that offers lessons and long arm quilting, on South Durango in Las Vegas. Dewey Street prides itself as the only single gathering place for “crafty creatives” in Southern Nevada. Courses and quilting will be led  by the three founders: Cindy Nickerson and her two daughters, Lindsay and Laurie. Dewey Street is also welcoming other craft experts to teach in the professional space. The business additionally offers “open studio” time when the general public may come in to work on crafts with the assistance of Dewey Street staff.

Dewey Street is launching with several types of lessons including: indie, textile and art. Indie covers a wide range of techniques including a “mash-up” of traditional lessons with a modern aesthetic, book binding and paper printing. Textile uses fabrics as a canvas with exploration including bleach printing, pattern design and fabric printing. Art blurs the lines between craft and art, and focuses more on self expression with projects including collage and decoupage.

Additionally, Dewey Street is offering several types of series. Examples include sewing, home and garden, and guest teacher, which brings experts from across the Las Vegas area to teach the skill or craft they know best, broadening the offerings of Dewey Street. This translates into Dewey Street constantly evolving and incorporating new and innovative methods to customers.

Lessons at Dewey Street reach all ages and ability levels. Instruction will appeal to everything from the contemporary crafting movement to traditional techniques. All people aged from child to senior will find a niche and class at Dewey Street, or may take advantage of the “open studio” time.

The name and foundation of Dewey Street find roots with 90-year-old Joan Faust who lived on Dewey Street in West Springfield, MA for nearly all of her life and raised a family as she literally turned trash into treasures. Her influence inspired daughter Cindy, and Cindy’s daughters, to launch the new business in Joan’s memory. The lessons they pass to the Las Vegas community are Joan’s legacy.

Founder Cindy Nickerson has been sewing almost all of her life and can perform nearly all forms of stitchery. T he gifted seamstress also ran a successful embroidery business for nearly 25 years in Massachusetts. Cindy operates one of the largest professional grade long arm sewing machines in the area. Her service offers a speedy and professional alternative to work that is commonly done in homes and a level of perfection through state-of-the art computerized technology. The precise stitching creates a high-quality, yet personalized piece that will last for generations.

Cindy’s daughter Lindsay carries on the legacy of quilting and sewing. She is a mother of two (soon to be three) and brings innovation to crafting with small children. Lindsay also  has a green thumb, which morphed into a complementing talent of creating vintage spoon plant markers.

Laurie, Cindy’s other daughter, cannot sew a straight line. However, she offers balance to the women of her family with strong artistic talent. Laurie keeps busy with her day job as Art Director for a leading Las Vegas firm and teaching a course at the Art Institute. Surprisingly, she finds enough spare time to move the artsy side of Dewey Street in the right direction. Her skills include painting, assemblage, book binding and perhaps most fun of all, puppet making.

Dewey Street’s interior reflects Laurie’s artistic vision. Lessons are taught around antique tables and a close look at the chair cushions will reveal a pattern of the Dewey Street logo. The walls are a soft blue and hanging art was designed and framed by Laurie.

The owners also advance Joan’s legacy by helping the community. The last Sunday of every month, Dewey Street offers its space, knowledge and time to a non-profit organization.

Dewey Street, located at 2960 S. Durango Suite 111 in Las Vegas, is open 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday, Thursday and Friday in addition to regularly scheduled class times and appointments. More information is available by going to

The Consequences of Our Tax Code

Birmingham, AL - Every year, families make financial decisions, and as a result, experience some unforeseen -- and unintended consequences. This could be an unexpected tax event, it may have been a broken relationship, or a business failure. (All of which and more, by the way, is why taxpayers should be sure to ask their tax professional about tax planning this year, rather than just the required tax “reporting” - which is what the tax return preparation process really is.) Local tax expert and CPA, Martha Echols, offers some insight.

“Sometimes these consequences are because of the tax code itself,” Echols said. “Take marriage, for example. The foundations of most civilizations function on the principle that children are best raised in a home by two parents in a committed relationship. As such, couples have always been encouraged to marry. (My point, by the way, is about what’s in the tax code, and how it encourages social change. So this is NOT at all to speak of anything related to the special heroism which is single parenthood.) But for many couples, our current tax code actually discourages marriage, and I think it’s a shame.”

Here’s how it does so...

“An individual who is working but makes a smaller income qualifies for the \"Earned Income Tax Credit\" (EITC),” Echols explained. “It’s refundable, which means that whether you owe that amount in tax or not, you may still receive it as a refund. The amount is calculated based on your salary, filing status and number of children. There is a plateau at which point the amount of the credit goes down.”

Without going into all the math, here’s an example: If a taxpayer and their partner are not married but have two children, they have some flexibility. Each of them can earn $17,100 and still collect the maximum $3,169 for a total of $6,338.

A married couple, on the other hand, with two children earning the same $34,200 would only collect $2,735. The formula \"penalizes\" them $3,603, or 10.5% of their salaries, simply because they are legally married.

And the marriage penalty only increases as income and the number of children rise. The\"penalty\" can be as high as $8,400 when compared against unmarried couples in certain salary levels.

“This should be sobering to us as a society,” Echols continued.I have no problem whatsoever with each individual making their own choices in these matters. And the EITC receives support from all parties because it’s an incentive to work (it only is received when there is a job in place). But we shouldn’t disincentivize a civilizational building block through our tax code.”

One solution could be to extend it to all individuals equally, regardless of marital status. But the point is this: our choices have consequences, many of which aren’t immediately apparent. So be wise, and have a guide in making tax and financial decisions moving forward.

“It helps to have someone who’s seen the road ahead,” Echols said.

Crow Canyon Archaeological Center to Offer Learning Vacations

I loved the banter back and forth between my fellow \\\'diggers\\\' and the excitement when someone made a discovery.--Libby Shafer

Explore an Ancient Culture in the Southwest While Relaxing and Regenerating

An increasing number of adult travelers are looking to vacation time not only as an occasion to relax and regenerate, but as an opportunity to learn. With a 30-year history of providing hands-on educational experiences to the public, the Crow Canyon Ar chaeological Center near Cortez, Colo., has expanded its adult programs to meet this demand.

Crow Canyon invites lifelong learners to join its archaeologists for excavations, lab work, or experimental artifact replication as they explore the 1,500-year-old history of the ancestral Pueblo people in the Southwest. The Center offers three programs for adults: the Archaeology Research Program, Archaeology Research Seminar, and Archaeology Lab Program. All programs take place at the Center’s campus, surrounded by the majestic scenery of southwestern Colorado.

Archaeology Research Program 

This year, Crow Canyon continues its Basketmaker Communities Project, focusing on ancestral Pueblo history from A.D. 500–750. Participants excavate at the Center’s current excavation site and analyze artifacts in the lab alongside leading Southwestern archaeologists. A guided tour of Mesa Verde National Park is included. Weeks are available in June, August, September, and October.

Archaeology Research Seminar 

Part pottery workshop, part experimental archaeology, the 2013 Adult Research Seminar explores the technological and social aspects of ancient Pueblo pottery production from A.D. 500–1300. Using locally available materials and traditional Pueblo techniques, participants will build, paint, and fire their own vessels in an attempt to replicate ancestral Pueblo black-on-white pottery. August 11–17.

Archaeology Lab Program 

This year\'s Archaeology Lab Program will focus on ancestral Pueblo jewelry and other ornaments. In the lab, participants will analyze beads, pendants, and other items of personal adornment from sites that Crow Canyon is currently excavating. In addition, traditional tools and techniques will be used to make a variety of ornaments out of the same materials used by ancestral Pueblo Indian people. October 6–12.

Family Archaeology Week is also available August 4–10.

Grammar Chic, Inc. Urges Job Seekers to Combine Traditional Resume Writing and Social Media Tactics to Create a Well-Rounded Professional Image

Amanda E. Clark, president and editor-in-chief of Grammar Chic, Inc., responds to reports of the decline of the paper resume by asserting the importance of looking at both traditional resume writing and social networking practices when searching for a new job.

The nature of the job search has certainly changed with the advent of the Internet, as employers are increasingly calling upon the power of the World Wide Web to recruit, screen and evaluate talent. While some industry professionals, such as Amanda E. Clark of Grammar Chic, Inc., view the Internet as a wonderful component of a well-rounded job search, others are anticipating t he eventual demise of the paper resume altogether. An article published by HR News Daily poses the question, \"Are paper resumes dead?\" in its headline. Clark answers that no, they are not, and provides insight to job seekers regarding how to balance their traditional job search practices with online networking and other Internet-based activities.

The article warns: \"Get ready for the moment you see a job post saying, \'no paper resumes.\' Companies will identify qualified candidates by social media influence on Klout and Twitter, using hashtags for job seekers to apply for jobs [...] More human resources departments are spending time searching for candidates on the Web, more time than staring at paper resumes.\"

While the Internet does offer valuable information regarding some candidates, it is not a tool that can provide a comprehensive picture of their professional capabilities. At the end of the article the cons of using an Internet-based job search process, rather than one that incorporates traditional resumes and cover letters, are listed. One of these is that recruiters may be misled by the information provided by a candidate\'s online presence in the form of false positives. Additionally, Clark asserts, highly talented job seekers who have not established a strong online image may be overlooked. This is one of the reasons why Clark encourages individuals to pay attention to both their paper resumes and their image on the World Wide Web.

\"When it comes to providing targeted information regarding a candidate\'s skills, experiences and accomplishments, the traditional paper resume is a highly powerful tool when written effectively,\" asserts Clark. \"With a professionally written resume and cover letter, a job candidate can successfully highlight the value that they can provide to their next employer. This said, though, it is important that job seekers understand that hiring managers and recruiters are surfing the World Wide Web, doing research on candidates that they are considering. As such, I always recommend that anyone who is looking for a job pays close attention to the online presence that they have created.\"

Clark encourages job seekers to take an inventory of their online assets, such as social media profiles, websites and blogs, by doing a quick search for their name. They should then ensure that these assets reflect them in as positive and professional a light as possible.

\"Something as simple as changing your profile picture on Facebook can make a major difference in how hiring managers perceive you,\" Clark comments. \"Because of this, I think it\'s a great idea for job seekers to polish their social media profiles in terms of their images and content. Taking down or refraining from sharing posts that are offensive or even just off color can do a lot to improve an online image—and this is key when looking for a job in today\'s competitive market.\"

Ultimately, Clark notes, hiring managers and recruiters are going to search for the names of the candidates in which they are interested online. By syncing LinkedIn profiles to paper resumes, removing inappropriate photos from Facebook and Twitter and engaging in positive, meaningful networking activities, job seekers can improve their online image and complement the traditional resume and cover letter that they provide to potential employers. 

Clark and the Grammar Chic, Inc. team encourage all interested individuals to call (803) 831-7444 or email for more information about resume and cover letter writing services, including details regarding pricing, turnaround time, etc. Additionally, individuals can access information pertaining to the use of social media and the development of a positive online presence.     


Grammar Chic, Inc. is a full-service literary consultancy that provides writing and editing services to a diverse clientele. Led by President and Editor-In-Chief Amanda E.

ToConceive has already helped hundreds of women achieve conception, and now has the opportunity to educate couples and help thousands of women worldwide to achieve conception, pregnancy, and motherhood.

\"For over 30 years, I have attempted to help women achieve conception, pregnancy , and motherhood, along with educating them about the conception process,” said Dr. Thompson. \"ToConceive has already helped hundreds of women achieve conception, and now has the opportunity to educate couples and help thousands of women worldwide to achieve conception, pregnancy, and motherhood.\"
Specific topics the website covers include male subfertility, unexplained infertility, sperm capacitation, natural conception lubrication and the conception process. The website contains professionally created videos discussing male subfertility, the conception process and conception tips, along with in-depth written articles about the same topics.

New Book Launches, Naked Civics: Strip Away the Politics to Build a Better World

“It is also about consumers taking action by providing feedback to these businesses, starting conversations about them to influence others and engaging in social media platforms to voice their opinion.”
Nate Garvis, who honed his expertise during an 18-year public affairs career at Target Corporation, launches a new book titled, Naked Civics: Strip Away the Politics to Build a Better World. A senior fellow of social innovation at Babson College, Garvis shares thought-provoking strategies to improve the current business climate, communities and the country by “creating cultural change through civic design.”
The book offers a fresh perspective on how anyone – individuals, businesses and other institutions – can contribute to short-and long-term societal change. Garvis states, “We can produce lasting change without the political drama. Laws are sometimes necessary, but we cannot rely solely on politicians and the time it takes to pass legislation to create these important changes. We need to move beyond the current state of hyper-partisanship. No matter how good, how powerful a law is, it is never enough. If widespread change is to be gained, it is through a larger force: culture.”
The book describes how this great world can be even better -- one action at a time. He challenges Americans to come together as a community and work together -- for the common good -- and to set forth our own civic designs.
Garvis, a strategic counsel to leaders across various industries, cites many inspirational examples of how different businesses are contributing to dramatic cultural and social change by:
Designing Products with a Conscience. Companies can build good values into product design. Garvis points to fast-growing Oliberté Shoes, which makes each shoe with handpicked free-range leather and does all of its manufacturing in African countries with distressed economies. With locally sourced materials and a pledge to environmental responsibility, the most important aspect of Oliberté’s efforts is its intention to wean these poor nations from their dependency on aid.
Making an Impact through Personal Action. Andrew Zimmern, teacher and host of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern, is tapping into his food innovation skills to make a worldwide impact in the food industry. He is getting the word out on aquaculture farmers who are bringing back economic viability and ecological sustainability on the Carolina coast with innovative artificial reef designs.
Working Together with a Civic Mindset. PricewaterhouseCoopers, through its Earn Your Future campaign, recently announced a $160 million commitment to advance youth education and financial literacy in the U.S. This will ultimately produce better outcomes in education.
Additionally, Garvis points out that it is more than just purchasing a product because we believe in the company’s values and social responsibility. “It is also about consumers taking action by providing feedback to these businesses, starting conversations about them to influence others and engaging in social media platforms to voice their opinion.”
Throughout the book, Garvis shows how individuals can partake in small actions that can lead to powerful impacts on our culture, such as:
Contribute to Positive Change. Pick an issue, a practice, or a product you would like to influence – something that really engages you – and learn everything about it to see how you can contribute to engaging others behind it.
Advocate for Healthier Food Systems. Want to combat the negative environmental impacts of industrial feedlot beef? Rather than fighting to outlaw this practice, eat free range beef or other sources of protein. Buy organic food without a law insisting upon it, and then influence others to do the same.
Make a Statement with Every Dollar. Dislike the persistent state of poverty in sub-Saharan Africa? Rather than merely sending aid, buy something made there and create economic prosperity instead. Raise the Spirit of the Community. Organize and support events in your neighborhood to help others in need, and get young children and adults involved. This will also bring better safety to your neighborhood.
Go Green. Interested in the environmental movement? Buy a car that doesn’t harm the planet with greenhouse emissions and purchase eco-friendly products. The more eco-friendly products and services that you buy everyday, surround your live with, the better for the planet and economy.
Naked Civics: Strip Away the Politics to Build a Better World is the ultimate how-to guide for implementing everyday societal change for the greater good of communities everywhere.
Retails for $4.95 (e-book) and $23.95 (hardcover).

Debbie Gardner of Survive Institute Heads to South Adams School in Berne, Indiana to Speak to the Student Body about Dating Violence

Debbie Gardner, of Survive Institute will assist South Adams Schools in complying with the dating violence education requirement. Her 90 minute interactive presentation is customized for grades 6 through 12. While in Indiana Survive Institute Offers a Self Defense Session to the Public on March 12th.

Heather's Law requires the Indiana Department of Education, in collaboration with organizations that have expertise in dating violence, domestic violence and sexual abuse, to develop or identify model dating violence educational materials, and model dating violence response and reporting policies.

Debbie Gardner will assist South Adams Schools in complying with the dating violence education requirement. Her 90 minute interactive presentation is customized for grades 6 through 12. "Debbie Gardner, comes highly recommended, she has vast experience on dealing with children and violence," praises South Adams School Counselor Sheila Graber. "Her no-nonsense approach to violence and courage are desperately needed for kids who are starving for simple truths for immediate safety." Continues Graber.

Debbie's seminar will immediately empower South Adams students, faculty and community members with life-saving concepts, updates and techniques such as:
• Look and speak with authority
• Recognize and outsmart crime set-ups
• Know when to "talk" … then "strike" LEGALLY
• React to ARMED attacker

Mike Gardner of Survive Institute explains why a new approach is important – "Students need a fresh alternative to their past self-defense experiences which likely emphasized complicated karate-type moves, boring crime statistics, high pressure mace sales, scary crime tales and unrealistic safety rhetoric (never walk alone, don't talk to strangers, just be aware, just use your commonsense, etc.). Kids deserve better and Debbie provides that.
Survive Institute is partnering with the South Adams School District to offer a seminar to the public on Tuesday, March 12 at South Adams High School located at 1000 Parkway St, Berne, IN 46711. The seminar is 1.5 hours in length and begins at 7:00. Donations needed and appreciated to defray costs and will be taken at the door.

Purebold Introduces Dazzling Golf Gloves in 10 Distinct Colors

Here is a chance for golfers to set up their own style – from an array of best golf gloves made of premium cabretta leather

Escondido, CA; USA, 04 February 2013: PureBold – a golf equipment company based in Escondido, CA, is making a brave move to enhance the style and functionality of golfers. Michael Belleggie, the founder, is enticing putters with an offering of best golf gloves in 10 distinct colors.

Golf gloves are seen with a function nothing more than to protect blisters. And traditionally we are all used to watching putters wearing either black or white gloves.

"Golf has always been conservative when it comes to making a fashion statement", says a prominent golf equipment manufacturer. "Now it is following suit, eventually."

The golf gear scene is witnessing a change gradually, albeit unquestionably. New materials, fits, combined with youthful attitudes are helping push trendy accessories in the market. The mantra now is to inject style and color into the game.

"People are tired of seeing white gloves. Now they want something that matches their shirts, trousers, and hats", says a seasoned golfer.

Purebold has a simple answer to this plea. The company has made a beginning by introducing best golf gloves in 10 alluring colors – purple, blue, green, yellow, orange, red, pink, grey, black, and white. To not compromise on quality and comfort, the gloves are made of 100 per cent premium Cabretta leather.

As Michael Belleggie, the founder of the company says, "100 per cent premium Cabretta leather is like second skin, meeting the requirements of the glove without sacrificing any feel".

Golf aficionados will no doubt insist that players must buy gloves primarily to maintain a firm grip on the golf clubs. In addition gloves help prevent blisters on hands and provide moisture control in warm and humid climates.

Choosing the right size is of course important. A player who has relatively short fingers with wide palms must select a cadet golf glove. Regardless of whether it is a standard or cadet golf glove it should fit snugly but not too tight.

With all the functionality taken care of, style still matters. Each golfer would like to look unique befitting their personality.

Happily PureBold's offerings give the impression that panache and flair has come to dominate gloves – without sacrificing functionality.
