OMAHA, NE /Send2Press Newswire/ -- The Enigma Radio Network recently added a podcasting division to their popular programming lineup of Internet radio shows. This addition helped the network reach over 100,000 MP3 downloads per day on February 21, 2005.

The Enigma Radio Network began broadcasting in August of 2004, with a weekly update from international best-selling author, Kathleen Keating. This update proved to be immensely popular. Kathleen is a frequent guest and commentator on radio programs and has hosted several radio shows in the past.

The constant demand for her radio appearances sparked the network to add The Enigma Files, a weekly, hour-long show featuring Kathleen and a variety of different guests. This show began broadcasting in December 2004 and became instantly popular with Kathleen's global fanbase.

In February 2005, the network started podcasting their MP3 format shows. The addition of the shows to many popular podcasting directories brought in even more listeners.

The Daily Dig is the latest show produced by the Enigma Radio Network. The Dig is a daily news program featuring headlines from all over the world and commentary. This new show received over 6,000 listens in its first week.

The Daily Dig will be introducing a new host, Jon Dougherty later this week. Dougherty brings a unique perspective from his many years as a respected print and radio journalist.

The network will continue to add new and innovative programming in the near future in response to its listener's demands.

The Enigma Radio Network is pleased to be involved in podcasting. Kathleen Keating stated that, "No one should be force-fed programming. People have the right to listen to what they want - when they want it."

The Enigma Radio Network is dedicated to this philosophy and looks forward to the growth of the network as it heads towards 200,000 listeners a day.

Alien Apparatus Company Solo Performer Show Controller 2.0 Adds MIDI Control and More

Author: Alien Apparatus Company, Inc.
Dateline: Tue, 22 Feb 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “PHILADELPHA, Pa. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Alien Apparatus Company, Inc. releases Solo Performer Show Controller version 2.0. Solo Performer Show Controller is a system for controlling the background music, lyrics displays, MIDI effects, and light shows for musicians. The system consists of a six-button foot controller that connects to a computer via USB, and software that runs on Windows and Macintosh.”



A R T I C L E:

PHILADELPHA, Pa. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Alien Apparatus Company, Inc. releases Solo Performer Show Controller version 2.0. Solo Performer Show Controller is a system for controlling the background music, lyrics displays, MIDI effects, and light shows for musicians. The system consists of a six-button foot controller that connects to a computer via USB, and software that runs on Windows and Macintosh.

Solo Performer Show Controller plays mp3 files, aiff files, wave files, and MIDI files. It can control MIDI effects units, lights that operate using the industry-standard DMX512 protocol, and can display lyrics on-screen in a karaoke-like manner. The software also includes a utility for stripping out unwanted tracks in MIDI files so that only the rhythm tracks play.

In this new release, Solo Performer Show Controller can now send MIDI files to external MIDI devices, change MIDI effects settings automatically, send hotkey commands to control other running applications, and redefine the button functions on the foot controller.

The Solo Performer Show Controller System is currently the only system available for controlling a show that seamlessly integrates audio, MIDI, and DMX512 lighting capabilities. With its six-button foot controller, a guitar player could, for example, play a show in front of an audience and have all of the backing rhythm tracks play from the system while it controls the lights and changes the singer's vocal reverb during the choruses.

Solo Performer Show Controller is available for both Windows and Macintosh computer systems. For more information on the product, or to order online, visit www.alienapparatus.com.

Ohio Native Capitalizes on Trend toward Local Web Searches

Author: Ohio Adnet, LLC
Dateline: Tue, 22 Feb 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “DAYTON, OH /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Ohio Adnet LLC capitalizes on local Web searches by Ohio consumers. Ohio Adnet.com provides you with important purchase information on items such as homes and automobiles through its real estate search and auto search areas. The job search area connects you with Ohio employers and other career resources. Additionally, the personals search area connects you with other Ohio singles for romance, friendship, or marriage.”

DAYTON, OH /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Ohio Adnet LLC (www.ohioadnet.com) capitalizes on local Web searches by Ohio consumers. Ohio Adnet.com provides you with important purchase information on items such as homes and automobiles through its real estate search and auto search areas. The job search area connects you with Ohio employers and other career resources. Additionally, the personals search area connects you with other Ohio singles for romance, friendship, or marriage.

Marlon R. Aldridge, a native of Dayton, Ohio, started the consumer information Web site to take advantage of the trend toward local Web searches. According to the Kelsey Group, more than 25% of commercial searches on the Internet are local. A growing number of consumers want to do business with companies and individuals within their local area. He plans to capitalize on this trend. According to a survey by the National Association of Realtors, the Internet is now the number two medium for reaching home buyers second only to yards signs, and 75 percent of consumers use the Web in their home searches. Car dealers and employment agencies use the Internet as their most cost effective means of attracting new customers and the trend is growing significantly.

"All of our marketing dollars focus on driving Ohio consumers to our Web site," says Aldridge. "We use paid search as our primary means of attracting customers as well as opt-in email campaigns. You will usually find us within the first two pages of the search results when you are confining your searches to Ohio only." As Ohio Adnet generates revenues it will add other marketing channels such as TV, radio, and newspaper.

Ohio Adnet is looking for car dealers, real estate agents and brokers, employment agencies, and individuals to help it fill its database. "We are not just a simple, text-only classified ad Web site; we give you the option to upload a photo for your home, auto, and personals ads," Marlon says. "Right now until we can get sufficient listings in our database, all of the listings except advertising space are free."

Camouflage Wristbands Raise Money to Support U.S. Troops

Author: Nevada Benefits Foundation
Dateline: Thu, 17 Feb 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “LAS VEGAS, NV /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Freedom is the cornerstone of our American values. Many courageous men and women in this great nation have made a choice to join the active duty military, the National Guard, or the Reserves to guard and protect freedom for all of us. All Americans have a choice to help support these heroes, regardless of how we feel about the war, through the programs offered by the Nevada Benefits Foundation.”

ARCHIVAL CONTENT

LAS VEGAS, NV /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Freedom is the cornerstone of our American values. Many courageous men and women in this great nation have made a choice to join the active duty military, the National Guard, or the Reserves to guard and protect freedom for all of us. All Americans have a choice to help support these heroes, regardless of how we feel about the war, through the programs offered by the Nevada Benefits Foundation (www.defendingfreedom.net).

Phil Randazzo, a Las Vegas businessman, has taken the initiative to help raise money to support our troops through two programs; the sale of "Defending Freedom" wrist bands and an "adopt a reservist" program. To date, these two programs, along with a locally held rally, have raised over $40,000. Randazzo's ultimate goal for the foundation is to raise and donate over one million dollars in 2005.

For a minimal donation of $3, the Defending Freedom wristband will symbolize heartfelt support of our troops and their families. All of the proceeds from contributions go to the Armed Forces Relief Trust (www.afrtrust.com).

Wear your Defending Freedom wristband proudly - everyday - wherever you go! Wristbands can be ordered to be worn proudly, or can be donated to our troops overseas from the website, www.defendingfreedom.net.

415,000 families are not only missing a loved one, but missing the financial ability to support themselves. In some cases, families are suffering a 70% decrease in salary compared to their civilian job. This means many are struggling to even clothe and feed their families. With that fact in mind, the "adopt a reservist" program was developed which puts people, willing to give support, directly in contact with a reservist family. No middle man.

"Our next endeavor will be our own documentary to spread the message to support the troops," says founder, Phil Randazzo, who will be traveling the country for three months eating nothing but MREs (what our troops eat when deployed) and sleeping in his vehicle while informing people of ways in which they can help support our troops.

See the website www.defendingfreedom.net for more general information about the organization.

CSIRO Forms Alliance With Australian Thermal Desalination Company

Author: Aqua Dyne, Inc.
Dateline: Wed, 16 Feb 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “STAPLYTON, Australia /Send2Press Newswire/ -- CSIRO, Australia's top scientific research organization has formed an alliance with thermal desalination specialist, Aqua Dyne Inc. (OTC:BB AQDY) to conduct research into water purification and water remediation, which will initially focus on the use of solar energy for water desalination. ”



A R T I C L E:

STAPLYTON, Australia /Send2Press Newswire/ -- CSIRO, Australia's top scientific research organization has formed an alliance with thermal desalination specialist, Aqua Dyne Inc. (OTC:BB AQDY) to conduct research into water purification and water remediation, which will initially focus on the use of solar energy for water desalination.

The first step will involve the relocation of the Aqua Dyne pilot plant, from Staplyton (half way between Brisbane and the Gold Coast) to CSIRO's Queensland Centre for Advanced Technology in the Brisbane suburb of Pinjarra Hills.

The flexibility of the Aqua Dyne JetWater system design allows it to be used for a wide range of desalination requirements ranging from seawater, brackish groundwater and remediation of industrial waste water, as well as the ability to co-generate with a variety of industrial plant and equipment.

The Aqua Dyne plant, which will be located at the CSIRO research facility, is expected to be in operation in June this year with the solar research project to be completed towards the end of 2005.

The CSIRO Division of Exploration and Mining will be responsible for the research activities with Commonwealth funding to be applied for on a project-by-project basis.

This will be a world-first research plant with the solar energy project having enormous potential for remote mining areas and more widely for remote townships in coastal and inland Australia and throughout the world.

CSIRO Research Scientist Mr. Pat Glynn said that combining known solar technology to the Aqua Dyne thermal desalination technology has very wide potential as it overcomes the greenhouse gas issue which occurs as a result of the use of electricity or diesel power for desalination.

"Our initial research indicates that we will need solar collecting panels of 1000 square metres in area to produce 1/2 mega litre of desalinated water per day," said Glynn.

"This size will also produce surplus steam with the potential to run a generator capable of an output of sufficient electricity that could be used in the mine, or township, or sold to the grid."

"The other potential benefit is that the use of solar projects has the potential to slash the price of the desalinated water by 50 to 60 per cent to only 15 to 30 cents per kilolitre which compares to the 70 to 80 cents currently charged by Queensland Councils for water derived from rainwater stores in dams."

"If we take this financial modeling even further into the agricultural sector we could even be contemplating the potential future drought-proofing of Australia," Mr. Glynn said.

Novel Patented Technology Enables Low Cost, Instant Ultraviolet Disinfection for Home and Personal Care Products

Author: UVSolutions LLC
Dateline: Mon, 14 Feb 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BOSTON, MA /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Ultraviolet disinfection technology developed for hospital-use now available for a number of home and personal care products such as toothbrushes, pacifiers, drinking cups, knives, cutting boards, etc. reports UVSolutions, LLC (www.uvs-ultraclean.com).”



A R T I C L E:

BOSTON, MA /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Ultraviolet disinfection technology developed for hospital-use now available for a number of home and personal care products such as toothbrushes, pacifiers, drinking cups, knives, cutting boards, etc. reports UVSolutions, LLC (www.uvs-ultraclean.com).

UVSolutions' infection control products provide families with revolutionary, low-cost, non-chemical antimicrobial home and personal care solutions in the wake of escalating concern for maintaining family health.

"UVSolutions' proprietary flash-based germicidal ultraviolet (UVC) sterilization technology for medical and consumer applications has a greater than 99% efficacy in killing bacteria, viruses, mold and fungi. UVC does not contribute to the development of resistant strains of microorganisms, as do other antimicrobials and antibiotics," reports Geoff Jenkins, President of the Boston-based company.

Multiple toothbrushes in the family toothbrush holder can cross-contaminate one another and are exposed to airborne germs in the "dirtiest" room in the house. Furthermore, the Surgeon General has reported that germs associated with gum disease have a correlation to heart disease, reports Jenkins.

Baby pacifiers also have many opportunities for contamination, either in the day care setting where cross contamination is prevalent or in the family setting where the pacifier spends a good part of the time on the floor in the home and public places.

Cutting boards and knives are frequently cited as "vectors of transmission" particularly when used to cut meat or chicken, followed by cutting other food prior to cleaning.

UVSolutions has focused on the development of low-cost, portable, battery operated disinfection products that are fast and easy to use.

UVSolutions LLC is a privately held product development company in Wellesley Massachusetts. The Company licenses its proprietary technology and product designs to market leaders. Other products under development include water purification products and a number of products for the medical community including a stethoscope disinfector and catheter site disinfection system.

UVSolutions LLC, 15 Glenbrook Road, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481.
