NEW YORK, N.Y. /Neotrope News Network/ -- JewelryCentral, a leading retailer of engagement rings and fine jewelry has entered into an agreement with Nickelodeon to provide prizes for the ParentsConnect.com sweepstakes. Nickelodeon is the most watched television network for kids in the United States, and a division of MTV Networks and Viacom Inc. (NYSE:VIA and VIA.B). For the grand prize, one lucky contestant will receive a heart-shaped diamond and garnet necklace from Jewelry Central. The grand prize winner will also receive other lovely items. Visit www.ParentsConnect.com to enter the sweepstakes.

Jewelry Central provides consumers with a superior alternative to shopping at a traditional retail store. The company offers thousands of independently certified loose diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry at exceptional values. In addition to the below retail prices, shoppers enjoy the extra convenience of browsing a vast selection of jewelry in one place from the comfort of their home or office. People are comfortable purchasing luxury items on the internet, and are buying less from brick and mortar retailers.

JewelryCentral.com provides a unique, simple and enjoyable way to buy engagement rings and fine jewelry. What makes the company a success is their dedication to customer service, and ongoing improvements to their Web site. To create a tangible visual experience, the company provides multiple views of each product, which can be enlarged to show detail. By making the buying experience more realistic, the company makes it easy to make an informed purchase.

This past fall, the company introduced 3D diamond movies to create a stunning visual experience for Web site visitors. Jewelry Central gives shoppers the option of viewing a beautiful three dimensional movie when looking at an individual diamond. Reviews of this new innovative content have been very positive, indicating increased customer satisfaction.

Each presentation shows how a diamond sparkles as light enters and exits the stone, while displaying flashes of color. This new technology dominates the Web in terms of having the most visually impressive presentation of a diamond. Most all other online companies do not offer their customers 3D diamond animations.

A famous animation studio in Hollywood, California developed this new technology. Animators built computer models to reproduce the facets and proportions of each diamond shape, and then used advanced CG technology to add color and produce the finished movies. Later this year, Jewelry Central will be introducing more animated content to enhance the customer experience.

Please visit www.jewelrycentral.com for more details.

Website Launch Nourishes Members with a Chance to Win a Trip to Wine Country

Author: Nourish Network
Dateline: Mon, 07 Dec 2009

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “HEALDSBURG, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- New Website and social hub Nourish Network empowers people to maintain a healthy body, a comfortable weight and an eco-clean conscience while getting more pleasure from food, and the company is kicking off the launch with a chance for members to win a trip to California's Sonoma County, where founder Lia Huber hails from. On January 1, 2010, a member will be drawn at random to win a three day trip for two to Wine Country, Calif.”



A R T I C L E:

HEALDSBURG, Calif., Dec. 7 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- New Website and social hub Nourish Network (www.nourishnetwork.com) empowers people to maintain a healthy body, a comfortable weight and an eco-clean conscience while getting more pleasure from food, and the company is kicking off the launch with a chance for members to win a trip to California's Sonoma County, where founder Lia Huber hails from. On January 1, 2010, a member will be drawn at random to win a three day trip for two to Healdsburg, Calif.

"My mission is to nourish body and soul with every bite. It seemed a natural fit to celebrate the launch of Nourish Network, which focuses on enjoying food that's healthy for both our bodies and the earth, with a personal visit here to wine country," says Huber. "This was where the seeds for Nourish Network were sown, and where it will flourish from."

On the menu is a behind the scenes tasting and tour of Cakebread Cellars, a wine industry leader in sustainable practices; visits to local artisanal food producers and farms; and one-on-one cooking instruction from Lia, a veteran food writer and recipe developer for top national publications like Cooking Light and Prevention.

The new Nourish Network promotes sustainable change with bite-sized articles on sound nutrition, "eco-clean" eating and being mindful around meals along with tempting recipes (all professionally developed and tested and accompanied by gorgeous photography) that put the principles into practice. Nourish Network recipes are rooted in seasonal ingredients while drawing on flavors from around the globe, most are doable in a weeknight, and all fall below the 500 calorie mark.

Short Kitchen Tips Video Clips teach viewers time-saving techniques to help them get more comfortable in the kitchen, and a social media aspect - like Facebook for foodies - lets members connect, make friends, create profiles, and dig into deeper conversation. "A lot of sites feature user-generated content," says Huber. "I wanted to create a site with professionally-produced content driving user-generated conversation. The idea is to foster deeper connections amongst community both online and off."

Huber draws not only on her own journalistic and culinary skills for Nourish Network, but on those of her colleagues as well. Alison Ashton, Cheryl Sternman Rule, Kurt Friese and Jacqueline Church are the four initial core contributors for the site.

Another unique aspect of Nourish Network is Huber's approach to advertising, where in order for a company to advertise they must be authentically advancing the principles of sound nutrition or eco-clean eating and living. "I didn't want our principles to fly out the door once readers hit the margins of the page, so I developed an approach where we can connect viewers to goods and services that fit their values, interests and needs, and at the same time champion companies of all sizes that are making peoples' lives a bit healthier, a bit calmer, a bit greener, a bit better."

To nourish your body and soul with every bite, visit Nourish Network. To be automatically entered to win a trip to wine country, become a member before December 31, 2009.

About Nourish Network:
Veteran food writer and branding consultant, Lia Huber, founded Nourish Network with the mission to nourish body and soul with every bite by helping people enjoy food that's healthy for both their bodies and the earth. Laid out like an online magazine meets Facebook for foodies, Nourish Network promotes sustainable change with tempting recipes and bite-sized bits of rich content on sound nutrition, "eco-clean" eating and being mindful around meals while inviting members to dig deeper into the conversation and connect with others who share similar views and concerns.

On the surface, Nourish Network empowers people to maintain a healthy body, a comfortable weight and an eco-clean conscience while getting more pleasure from food. On a deeper level, it shows people how to feel fulfilled, content and connected with every meal, every bite.

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SACRAMENTO, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Professionals Guild announced today that it is again hosting two grand New Year's Eve parties - a Bay Area New Years Eve Party at the Hilton Hotel in Concord; the other, a Sacramento New Years Eve Party at the Hilton Hotel Arden West. Both locations encourage singles and couples to attend.”



A R T I C L E:

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Dec. 3 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Professionals Guild announced today that it is again hosting two grand New Year's Eve parties - a Bay Area New Years Eve Party at the Hilton Hotel in Concord; the other, a Sacramento New Years Eve Party at the Hilton Hotel Arden West. Both locations encourage singles and couples to attend.

"These New Year's Eve parties are really unique," says Phil Seyer, director of Professionals Guild. "The entire first floor of each hotel is entirely devoted to the party. There's no other elegant, huge New Year's Eve event in the area that puts singles at such ease. Couples are also welcome, and many couples tell us they really enjoy these events 'because singles know how to party!'"

Both New Year's Eve parties include: two free drinks, free casino gaming for prizes, a live dance band and a DJs. Special entertainment is provided throughout the evening and culminates in a champagne toast, party favors and continued mingling and dancing.

The bands and DJs will play in separate grand ballrooms. This allows party guests different experiences as they go from room to room. Bands will play an array of music ranging from top 80's and 90's hits to current dance music. The DJs will play popular tunes from several decades, including old-school favorites as well as the latest dance tunes. There is something for everybody.

Party goers can also visit various exhibits and try their hand at casino gaming. At the Hilton Concord New Years Eve party craps, blackjack, roulette and poker will be the games of choice, with prizes awarded to the best players. At the Sacramento NYE celebration, craps and blackjack will be offered.

The Sacramento location boasts three dance floors. Two bands - Mercy Me (Band) and The Groove Thang will simultaneously play in separate ballrooms, while DJ Ron Davis, who also plays several instruments, spins tunes in the third.

The Bay Area New Year's Eve party will feature the popular Take 2 party dance band and DJ Mike Westerman.

Professional photographers will be on hand at both locations and ready to print out photos on the spot.

Seyer adds that, "For the past 11 years, both the East Bay New Year's Eve party and the Sacramento New Year's Eve party have sold out, so it's best to book a ticket and room early. Advance discount tickets and special hotel package deals are also available."

Advance tickets are available at the hotel for $75 or $65 at www.ProGuildSocial.com. Tickets at the door are $85.

ProGuildSocial is sponsoring a contest and giving away two NYE related prizes. One prize is for a free room and New Years Eve party at the Hilton Concord.

There is no cost to become a member of ProGuildSocial.

A R T I C L E:

SEVERN, Md., Oct. 6 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Rosetta Classic, LLC is now offering commercially available, hand crafted replicas of the original Rosetta Stone to any interested entity or individual - considered by some to be "the Rosetta Stone of replicas." Anyone interested in the fields of archaeology, Egyptology, cryptology, publishing, geology, science, writing, mathematics, translation work and/or languages understands the significance of this famous artifact.

Next Step After Twitter and Facebook: New Social Network Lets You Carve Your Own Niche on the Web

Author: World Mind Network
Dateline: Wed, 26 Aug 2009

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BONITA, Calif. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- What is the next thing for Social Networking? Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and their competitors let you find friends, build brands, and form groups. But a newer site lets you do those things, plus monopolize a chunk of the Internet around a social issue, philosophical question, research problem, niche art form, or environmental challenge. The rationale for the World Mind Network (WMN) stems from events over the last five years or so - the advent of new Web 2.0 tools which have hit society like waves.”

BONITA, Calif., Aug. 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- What is the next thing for Social Networking? Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and their competitors let you find friends, build brands, and form groups. But a newer site lets you do those things, plus monopolize a chunk of the Internet around a social issue, philosophical question, research problem, niche art form, or environmental challenge that you are passionate about. And all for free. The rationale for the World Mind Network (WMN) stems from events over the last five years or so - the advent of new Web 2.0 tools which have hit society like waves, one after another: MySpace, Skype, Facebook, YouTube, all the various iPhone and Blackberry applications, and now Twitter.

But to a large degree, Web 2.0 tools have been used historically for rather trivial purposes such as games, gossip, silly videos, and inconsequential chatter.

The WMN wants to help people use these tools for grander purposes. Members can use these vastly expanded powers of networking to improve education, do research, build community across political divides, and utilize collaborative online mind-mapping to address common problems. Equally important, their tools allow an individual or small group to attract so much search engine traffic that they may become almost synonymous with their favorite cause.

The WMN Board of Trustees includes five Nobel Laureates.

The first project was helping a multimedia ICT Education center in Kenya receive funding through donation of unused cellphone minutes (SambazaGroup.com).

Joining the World Mind Network is like having a Facebook or Twitter account, but it assumes that one is interested in improving the world somehow. Participants can join a forum devoted to improving science education co-moderated by a Nobel Laureate (Peter Doherty), start a psychological research project, or contribute to an interactive blog on the world economic crisis co-hosted by another Nobelist (Edmund Phelps).

A new project, Twit Lit, invites users to create poems in classic forms short enough to become Twitter feeds (TwitLit.net).

Members are setting up live webcam links between secondary classrooms in South Africa, Macedonia and Japan.

In the works is a program using solar powered cell phones recently invented by Samsung to track the spread of the Aedes mosquito that carries the deadly Dengue fever in East Africa.

The new Institute for Digital Music (Institutefordigitalmusic.ning.com) invites visitors to compose, perform and collaborate with others in creating music through elements such as iPhone apps, Leaf Trombone and Ocarina.

One WMN member is starting a contest to award the best Keitai Shoushetsu, or cell phone novel, a cultural phenomenon that has taken Japan by storm.

A wiki devoted to the psychological effects of H1N1 influenza is at emotionalcontagionandswineflu.wetpaint.com.

"FealGood Charity Ball: An intimate evening honoring the heroes of 9/11" to be held at NJ's Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck.

NEW YORK, N.Y., Aug. 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The FealGood Foundation, a non-profit organization that advocates for sick and dying 9/11 Ground Zero First Responders, will hold the FealGood Charity Ball on Friday, September 11, 2009 at New Jersey's Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck.

FealGood Foundation"Eight years ago following the World Trade Center bombing, the watchword across the nation was 'We Will Never Forget.' Yet, for most Americans, the memory fades a little more with each passing day," says John Feal, president of the foundation.

"But the thousands of brave first responders who spent weeks sifting through the burning rubble of the collapsed buildings can never forget. The terrorist attacks have become a nightmare that is literally killing them. Seventy percent of those who served at the site are sick or have died as a result of their 9/11-related illnesses."

"It's an American tragedy that has gripped my heart," says Peter Grandich who along with the Spano Family Foundation is organizing the event. "Over 30,000 medical, police, fire fighters and volunteers who responded to Ground Zero are sick and our government has turned their back on these heroes."

In addition to raising funds and awareness, the night will also honor two elected officials and Grandich, all of whom have been staunch supporters of the FealGood Foundation. The honorees are Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney, U.S. Representative for New York's 14th District; Assemblyman David P. Rible, State Assemblyman serving New Jersey's 11th District; and Peter Grandich, founder of Trinity Financial, Sports & Entertainment Management Co.

The event, which has a star-studded celebrity guest list including many professional athletes, will feature numerous celebrity auction items like a day in the pits with actor/race car driver Patrick Dempsey, lunch and private tickets to a Yankee game with pitcher Brian Bruney, a foursome with NY Jet Jay Feeley and more.

A complete list of celebrities and auctions is available online at www.FealGoodCharityBall.com. The event will also include a golf outing at the exclusive, members-only Trump National Golf Club Colts Neck.

For ticket or sponsorship information to the invitation-only event, please visit www.FealGoodCharityBall.com, or call contact Chairwoman Deborah Weiss at 908-670-9896 or email Deborahwss@optonline.net.

LONDON, U.K., July 16 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- SentForever (www.sentforever.com) are letting people transmit free messages into deep space through their Web site to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landings. When transmitted, these messages travel at the speed of light which is 670 million miles per hour. After just 8 minutes the messages pass by the sun and 5 1/2 hours later pass Pluto.

Goonhilly dishIn just 14 hours the messages overtake the Voyager 1 probe which is the most distant man-made object from Earth. Voyager 1 is a deep space probe launched by NASA in September 1977.

Chris Thomason of SentForever says: "As a young boy watching Neil Armstrong take that famous first step onto the moon's surface, I knew I was part of an incredibly emotional moment in history. For the average person there aren't many moments like that in space exploration any more, so we decided to allow people to create their own emotional experience."

"At SentForever, we allow people to send messages into space and some of the messages sent - especially regarding lost loved ones - are so charged with personal emotion that we know we are helping people in a number of different ways."

"People also send many fun and happy love messages and messages of their hopes and dreams. There are lots of messages being sent to aliens too."

Messages are transmitted daily from a specially modified dish at British Telecom's satellite earth station at Goonhilly Downs in Cornwall, U.K. The messages get weaker over time but they will exist and travel for the rest of eternity.
