Dakota Dental Announces Tactics to Develop Healthy Oral Habits in Kids

Dakota Dental offers recommendations for creating healthy oral habits in children; starting these good habits and avoiding bad ones are key for a child’s oral health.

Apple Valley, MN, USA (August 31, 2015) — Dakota Dental, a Minneapolis family dentist, works with families to promote and establish good oral health habits in children. Nearly 19% of kids between the ages of two and nineteen have untreated cavities; developing healthy habits for caring for their teeth can go a long way to prevent this decay.

“Oral and dental health habits, both good and bad, are formed early,” explains Richard P. Dugas, DDS in an article from everydayhealth.com. To ensure children’s teeth get off to a healthy start, the family dentists at Dakota Dental recommend a variety of habits to build dental awareness and ways to avoid oral health problems.

A child’s baby teeth are at risk for decay as soon as they appear, which is usually when they are around six months old. For infants, dentists recommend brushing their teeth as soon as they get them. Brush teeth twice per day, making sure to use only a very small amount of toothpaste – roughly the size of a grain of rice.

As the child gets older, the amount of toothpaste can be increased to a pea-sized portion. Once a child can brush their teeth on their own, it’s important to teach them to not swallow toothpaste. Daily flossing is recommended once the child has two teeth that touch.

Making brushing and flossing a daily habit is vital for building healthy habits in children. However, it is also necessary for children to avoid falling into other, more detrimental habits. Make sure to limit a child’s use of a bottle or sippy cup – the sugars in milk and juice can eventually lead to tooth decay. “Constantly sipping milk, juice, or any sweetened liquid does not give a child’s natural saliva a chance to rinse away sugars that cause tooth decay,” Dugas says. A good idea would be to limit sugary juices and replace with water instead. Additionally, having a child rinse their mouths out with water after a sugary drink helps wash away the sugars that could eat away at their enamel.

Another way to make sure that kids maintain healthy teeth is by scheduling regular dental appointments – once every six months is a standard baseline. Dakota Dental offers pediatric dentistry as well as dentistry services for all ages. Talk with the family dentists at Dakota Dental for other recommendations for building healthy teeth habits in your kids by calling 952-431-5774.

SmartTOP Add-on Convertible Top Controller for Alfa Romeo Spider gets new design

Aftermarket automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars has recently upgraded the product design of the SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller modules. The SmartTOP module for Alfa Romeo Spider now receives this hardware upgrade as well. The kit allows use of thea top while driving at slow speeds and with one-touch convenience. The top can also be controlled from a distance using the original key fob remote.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), August 27th, 2015 — Effective immediately, Mods4cars ships the SmartTOP kit for the Alfa Romeo Spider with the new, custom designed product enclosure. The intelligent aftermarket product makes using the convertible top easier and more fun. Owners can open and close their top from the original key fob remote without the need to modify said remote or receiver system.

Another main feature of the module is the ability to control the top while the car is in motion. Up to a speed of 40 km/h (~28mph) the top can be opened or closed with one-touch convenience. It is not necessary any longer to hold down the switch for the entire duration of the operation. A quick push starts a full automatic top cycle.

All features of the SmartTOP product can be configured individually to taste. Bonus features such as an extended mode that allows the engine to be started or stopped while the top is still moving, can be enabled. The entire module can be disabled, if needed, while retaining all other user settings. Installation is made easy through use of a plug-in-between wiring adapter. The adapter comes with the kit and quickly connects the module to the car electronics.

“We are happy to announce availability of the redesigned SmartTOP module for the Alfa Romeo Spider this year.” says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. “On one hand the custom designed product enclosure is about 30% smaller than the previous version, allowing installation in even tighter spaces.”, he continues. On the other hand the new version now comes with two LEDs that show status information which helps during installation.

Mods4cars continually works on extending and improving products and features. Other than occasional hardware upgrades, all products receive firmware upgrades when new functionality is implemented. Customer feedback is always taken into consideration. All modules come with a USB port for quick and easy configuration and update via Mac or Windows PC. Support software and firmware updates are available online free of charge.

Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Jaguar, Lamborghini, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo: SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller kits are available for many popular brands.

About Mods4cars:
Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.

New Book Encourages Couples to Celebrates Life Even When One of Them Has a Terminal Illness

The personal narrative of Don’t Stop Believing: Our Journey with Cancer, by Kasey Crawford Kellem is a remarkable memoir that shares her personal struggle, unconditional love for her husband Craig, and their losing battle against prostate cancer.

Cleveland, OH (USA), August 27th, 2015 — There’s more than one way to tell a sad story, but sharing a true story of love, hope, faith and the loss of a loved one to cancer can be painful, difficult and heart wrenching, as well as uplifting and encouraging. The personal narrative of Don’t Stop Believing: Our Journey with Cancer, by Kasey Crawford Kellem is a remarkable memoir that shares her personal struggle, unconditional love for her husband Craig, and their losing battle against prostate cancer.

“We loved, laughed and lived to the very end,” shared Kasey. “We didn’t give up on life just because of a grim outcome. Craig’s life touched many people from family, close friends and strangers who followed our journey through social media.”

In the memoir, Don’t Stop Believing: Our Journey with Cancer readers experience some of the uplifting events and ways Kasey and Craig celebrated, danced and enjoyed life. “You have a choice in this world and we chose to believe,” said Kasey, and believe they did. With a cancer diagnosis hanging over their heads, Kasey and Craig paid it forward by encouraging others also battling cancer and hardships to find the joy in life around them. Kasey and friend, Harry, even started a trend based off the concept of a Flash Mob to help uplift not only Craig, but family, friends, co-workers and complete strangers with what they dubbed a Love Mob.

Kasey is a big believer, teacher and role model of being resilient. Living with Multiple Sclerosis and having lost her mother eleven years ago, she knows how to overcome challenges. “My mom used to say, ‘If this is the worst that can happen to you, then you’re lucky,’” said Kasey. “Craig also had a motto: ‘This too shall pass.’ Because we believed and celebrated life, laughed, dreamed and were surrounded by loving people, we were able to get through the hard times.”

In Don’t Stop Believing: Our Journey with Cancer readers will relate to the love and devotion Kasey and her husband Craig experienced as they believed and celebrated to the very end. Much of the memoir draws upon memories and social media posts Kasey shared on Facebook throughout their journey with cancer. “When I sat down to write after Craig passed, it was very raw and fresh to me the experiences we went through. I found going through my timeline and being able to reflect was very cathartic and therapeutic. I wasn’t able to process what was happening to us at the time. I was on autopilot. I couldn’t let myself get emotional. I had to be a rock for my husband. But now, I was able to see what happened and how we made it through to the end. Writing this memoir has helped me process everything. I’m not bitter. I don’t play the ‘What if’ game. We lived…we believed,” shared Kasey.

Kasey Crawford Kellem’s raw honesty reveals every emotion she faced and the various thoughts that raced through her mind after her husband Craig was given his death sentence. Don’t Stop Believing: Our Journey with Cancer is not exactly happy. It’s not that kind of book. However, it will linger long and hard in the minds of readers and show life is worth living no matter the outcome. But it’s not a cancer book either…because cancer books suck.

“In the midst of a cancer diagnosis, most patients and family members find it difficult to retain the information they hear. Having a loved one live with a terminal diagnosis for an extended period of time is fast replacing sudden and unexpected death as a norm,” said Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina. “In this emotional rendition of Kasey and Craig’s battle with cancer, Kasey encourages people fighting this dreaded disease to never lose hope, to keep believing and to celebrate life to the every end.”

You can purchase Don’t Stop Believing: Our Journey with Cancer through Halo Publishing’s website (http://halopublishing.com), Amazon, B&N and local bookstores.

Kasey Crawford Kellem, a school counselor, has devoted her life to helping others facing adversity overcome their challenges and be resilient. She earned a bachelor and master’s degree in special education and an educational specialist degree in counseling. Kasey is the author of five Mind Over Matter children’s books: Believe; Love; Relax; Laugh; and Dream. She is a recent widow, stepmother, sister, daughter and friend to many.

Edgar Perez Leading Cybersecurity Workshop for CEOs in NYC, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta & Sydney

Edgar Perez brings Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015, seminars in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo that are specifically designed for board members, senior executives and entrepreneurial business professionals looking for new ways to gain and maintain competitive business advantage in one of the most critical subjects for corporations and governments worldwide.

New York City, NY, USA (August 28, 2015) — The extramarital affair website Ashley Madison has been served with a US $578 million lawsuit following a breach that resulted in data concerning 39 million of its members being leaked online, including usernames, messages and email and home addresses. Furthermore, it was recently disclosed by Gizmodo editor-in-chief Annalee Newitz that most of the female accounts were fake. The official numbers from the site showed that 31 million of the accounts belonged to men while 5 million supposedly were linked to females. However, Newitz found that 10,000 accounts were created with the ashleymadison.com email, implying that they were test subscriptions. Nine thousand of those 10,000 belonged to women, while the remaining numbers were either categorized as male or no gender specified.

Firms like Avid Dating Life and Avid Media, the Toronto-based companies that run Ashley Madison, now begin to view cyber attacks as existential threats to their survival; ignoring cyber security issues can have the most dangerous and lasting consequences for global and local corporations. They join now an ever growing list of large companies that have suffered high-profile cyber security breaches that include Adobe, ADP, E*Trade, Fidelity, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Nasdaq, Neiman Marcus, Sony, Target and Wal-mart.

Groups Combine Forces to Target GOP Incumbents Backing Amnesty for Illegals

ALIPAC is announcing a groundbreaking new tactic that is being added to The Cantor List which targets GOP incumbents in Congress who support immigration reform amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Raleigh, NC, USA — ALIPAC is announcing a groundbreaking new tactic that is being added to The Cantor List which targets GOP incumbents in Congress who support immigration reform amnesty for illegal immigrants.

This new innovative strategy involves adding 100 Facebook social media pages created by the activist group Rise Up America (RUA) to the Cantor List. The RUA social media groups and the Cantor List will now point at each other so volunteers can easily use both the list and the groups to recruit and support GOP primary challengers!

View Upgraded Cantor List: The Cantor List

“While Facebook is heavily and actively biased against conservative activists like us, we hope this unprecedented move of marrying 100 social media groups with the Cantor List will help Americans find and support more qualified challengers to throw more Eric Cantor style amnesty supporters out of office in 2016!” said ALIPAC’s President William Gheen. “The Trump campaign phenomena can inspire more candidates to challenge establishment Republicans and create a GOP primary coattail effect that will benefit our anti-amnesty challenger candidates while the implosion of the Jeb Bush campaign creates negative coattail pressure on corrupt incumbents like John McCain and John Boehner!”

ALIPAC has already endorsed Dr. Kelli Ward and JD Winteregg in their GOP primary campaigns to remove Senator John McCain and Speaker John Boehner from office 2016 and has standing endorsements for 75 members of Congress that the US Chamber of Commerce is targeting for removal because they stopped amnesty legislation.

When visitors visit the Cantor List, which is still under construction, they may now click on the names of political targets to access the ALIPAC Amnesty profile page or click on the “Organize Against on Facebook” link to access 100 pages of activists! While some pages are new with few or handfuls of people on them so far, others have hundreds to thousands of supporters already in place for this new phase of the Cantor List.

Social media users visiting any of the 100 Facebook pages being entwined with the Cantor List will see links back to the ALIPAC Amnesty Profiles, the Cantor List, and regular updates posted about the national movement to revolt against GOP establishment candidates seeking to change current US laws to accommodate and promote millions of illegal aliens on US soil.

Rise Up America and the 100 Facebook groups matching the targets on the Cantor List were created by volunteers who were originally inspired by ALIPAC’s initial call to target and replace GOP lawmakers that voted to fund Obama’s amnesty decrees via a clean DHS funding bill in January of 2015.

Medical Design Briefs Explores Silicone Alternatives, Northwire’s Impact on Life Sciences

The cable and wire manufacturer’s BioCompatic represents their second feature in Tech Briefs.

Osceola, WI, USA (August 26, 2015) — Cable engineering company, Northwire, Inc., (NWI), lends their materials expertise to the increasingly popular conversation challenging traditional silicone. Striving to deliver cutting-edge solutions to customers, the cable manufacturer participates in Medical Design Briefs’ August issue featuring silicone alternatives.

Medical Design Briefs: Tech Briefs focuses on design and technological advancements in the area of medical manufacturing innovation. As part of this mission, the publication seeks out industry leaders and R&D professionals to contribute articles, white papers, videos, and other resources to educate and inform readers. This is the second consecutive year that the magazine has asked Northwire to provide an article highlighting the next-generation medical cable and wire solutions.

This year, Kevin DePratter, PMP® and Northwire’s Director of R&D, lent forty- two years of industry expertise to the article titled, “Silicone’s History – and Future – in Medical Manufacturing.” Exploring silicone’s versatility and its subsequent rise in popularity as a useful material in a number of medical device designs, DePratter demonstrates its inherent limitations as compared to the extreme performance properties of innovative alternatives. The silicone polymer’s applications range from valves and tubing to cable jacketing and beyond. Its adaptability to extreme environments, ability to meet biocompatibility standards, and durability against sterilization made silicone the popular selection for many years.

As silicone has many proven advantages, it is often viewed as the traditional go-to material for coating cables used in implantable medical devices, surgical tools and more. However, medical-grade silicone jacketed cable can be costly to produce, and most silicone suppliers require long lead times. Combined with Northwire’s materials science and industry expertise, recent technology enables field-proven silicone alternatives featuring more robust resistance to crush, cut and chemicals. Options for medical device cable materials such as Northwire’s BioCompatic are quickly growing. Leading the shift and meeting customers’ demands, Northwire is currently working on BioCompatic’s product family extension to serve the next phase of unique engineering requirements of medical device design.

ALIPAC Endorses 2 Amnesty Fighters Earlier than Ever Before

ALIPAC is making the national organization’s first endorsements of the 2016 cycle to support two very strong candidates who will challenge notorious GOP illegal immigrant amnesty supporters John McCain and Speaker John Boehner.

Raleigh, NC, USA — Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is making the national organization’s first endorsements of the 2016 cycle to support two very strong candidates who will challenge notorious GOP illegal immigrant amnesty supporters John McCain and Speaker John Boehner! This is the first time that ALIPAC has issued endorsements before the actual election year.

ALIPAC is formally endorsing J.D. Winteregg who is running again against John Boehner in Ohio’s 8th District. In 2014, Winteregg ran against John Boehner who is a top target on ALIPAC’s “Cantor List” due to his overt and covert support for Obama’s illegal immigrant amnesty executive actions that 26 states are suing to stop. Americans concerned about illegal immigration and immigration reform amnesty that further undermines America’s border and laws are encouraged to volunteer, vote for, donate to, and support J.D. Winteregg for Congress at http://www.jdwinteregg.com.

ALIPAC is also endorsing Kelli Ward for US Senate in Arizona. Dr. Ward is challenging Senator John McCain who recently polled as the most despised member of the US Senate. John McCain defeated challenger JD Hayworth in 2010 by promising Arizona’s GOP voters that he would no longer support amnesty for illegal aliens. Then, upon returning to DC, McCain supported and voted to pass Amnesty bill S. 744 completely betraying his promise. Dr. Kelli Ward is an Arizona state senator with the campaign experience necessary to defeat John McCain whose notorious negative campaign tactics are likely to backfire when he attacks a respected Arizona woman. http://www.kelliward.com.

“Both John Boehner and John McCain are corrupt and deceptive politicians rich with the big money of the US Chamber of Commerce,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Boehner and McCain are trying their best to help Obama and the Chamber lock in millions of illegal aliens via amnesty legislation. We are going to do all we can to support J.D. Winteregg’s and Kelli Ward’s efforts to throw these treacherous men out of office just like we helped to throw Eric Cantor out in 2014. In fact, using ALIPAC’s Cantor List, the research we provide with each person on the list, and the know-how we learned fighting Eric Cantor, we plan to target close to 100 GOP amnesty supporters in 2016.”

GOP candidates who support any form of amnesty for illegal immigrants, including deceptive guest worker programs, temporary worker programs, Dream Act amnesty, or “immigration reform” are highly vulnerable to primary challengers who promise voters they will advocate for the adequate enforcement of America’s immigration laws instead of any amnesty legislation that would permanently undermine them.

ALIPAC believes that the Dave Brat victory over incumbent GOP lawmaker Eric Cantor in 2014 can be repeated in many districts across America because over 80% of Republican voters oppose the immigration reform legislation plans the US Chamber of Commerce and Democrats support!

ALIPAC was originally founded on 9/11 2004 by campaign volunteers who wanted to create an organization that would offer more support for average citizens who were working to stop illegal immigration and amnesty.

Candidates recruited or endorsed by ALIPAC will be added to ALIPAC’s standing endorsements list (click to view) and added as Endorsed Challengers to the new “Eric Cantor List” where activists are working hard in every state to find strong GOP challengers for 105 Republican incumbents documented as supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants just like Eric Cantor!
