In ten easy steps, or about an hour, anyone with a DVD player can easily learn the secrets of professional makeup application.

The DVD format provides ultimate control. Girls can skip directly to the section of the makeup application they want to learn about and then to the model who most closely represents their skin type. DVD quality video and audio presents every brushstroke and clearly delivers instruction. The pace of the video is set to reveal every movement so the viewer can follow along with her own makeup application.

Before Makeup Secrets Revealed, women had few options how to learn to apply makeup. Many women learned from their mothers and looked overdone. Some women learned bit by bit from a year's worth of magazines. And still others learned from their friends. That is all about to change as Star Makeovers brings professional makeup techniques to all women, no matter where they live or whom they know. Makeup Secrets Revealed is the perfect aide when preparing for a wedding, prom, or date.

After an extensive search for makeup artists, Zarin (Zah-reen) Halim was chosen for her stunning portfolio of work on celebrities, models, and everyday women.

A Caucasian model and a Hispanic model present varying complexions, colors, and common makeup issues. Before and after photos show the dramatic beautification this technique can give every woman.

ONEAC Announces PCm Series(R) Medical-Grade Power Conditioners Now Available in 1500, 2000 and 3000 VA

Author: ONEAC Corporation
Dateline: Tue, 08 Feb 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “LIBERTYVILLE, IL /Send2Press Newswire/ -- ONEAC Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of power conditioners and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), today announced additions to its PCm Series Medical-Grade Power Conditioner line. The new PCm 1500, 2000 and 3000 VA models join the previously released 120-1000 VA Medical-grade Power Conditioners and a robust line of ONm Series Medical-Grade UPS. The PCm Series Medical-Grade Power Conditioners eliminate power contaminants in medical applications with a full-time, on-line isolating transformer, while conforming to the global electrical safety standards for medical equipment -- IEC60601-1 and its derivatives for Europe (EN60601), U.S. (UL60601-1/UL2601) and Canada (CSA C22.2 No. 601.1).”



A R T I C L E:

Designed Specifically for Global Medical Applications That Require IEC60601-1 Compliance

LIBERTYVILLE, IL /Send2Press Newswire/ -- ONEAC Corporation, a leading international manufacturer of power conditioners and uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), today announced additions to its PCm Series Medical-Grade Power Conditioner line. The new PCm 1500, 2000 and 3000 VA models join the previously released 120-1000 VA Medical-grade Power Conditioners and a robust line of ONm Series Medical-Grade UPS. The PCm Series Medical-Grade Power Conditioners eliminate power contaminants in medical applications with a full-time, on-line isolating transformer, while conforming to the global electrical safety standards for medical equipment -- IEC60601-1 and its derivatives for Europe (EN60601), U.S. (UL60601-1/UL2601) and Canada (CSA C22.2 No. 601.1).



Caption: ONEAC's New PCm Series 3000VA Medical-grade Power Conditioner


These medical-grade units are available with hospital-grade plugs and receptacles and in 120 V and 230 V, 50/60 Hz with IEC connectors to facilitate country-specific connector compatibility. Multiple input voltage options are available on select models. These new PCm models are available now and carry a list price from $1136-$2050 (USD).


Medical Electronics Need Clean Power

Patient monitoring equipment, lab instrumentation and medical information systems have become significantly more sophisticated as electronic technology has evolved. Semiconductor chips are smaller and process information faster than ever before. While at the same time, making them more susceptible to disruption, degradation and destruction caused by poor power quality.


ONEAC's Medical-Grade Solution

The PCm Medical-Grade Power Conditioners ensure more reliable medical equipment performance by isolating medical equipment from the outside electrical worlds they connect to. Unlike surge suppression devices, ONEAC limits peak voltage (amplitude) and edge-speed (frequency) of electrical transients by employing a low impedance isolation transformer and Virtual Kelvin Ground(R) to remove the full spectrum of power line noise in both Common and Normal modes. This technology converts a noisy safety ground to a noise-free signal ground and provides a separately derived power source which limits earth leakage current to less than 100 milliamps which is well below the IEC60601-1 specification of 300 milliamps.


According to Maureen Janosch, Director of Product Marketing for ONEAC Corporation, "The ONEAC approach has proven uniquely effective against all conducted electrical disturbances. In medical applications, the need to protect critical electronic equipment and crucial data is second only to protecting patients. ONEAC medical-grade power conditioners provide clean, conditioned power and also help medical facilities comply with the strict earth leakage requirements of IEC60601-1."


Typical Applications

Power fluctuations and electrical transients hinder the availability and reliability of electronic-based systems used in medical environments. PCm Medical-Grade Power Conditioners condition the power to attached loads, while fully conforming to the strict earth leakage requirements of IEC60601-1 specifications. Typical applications include use with medical diagnostic equipment, imaging systems, analyzers, audio systems and other "patient contact" or "patient vicinity" equipment. Additional applications may include manufacturer integration with new or existing medical systems as part of an IEC60601-1 test and compliance program, or use with installed equipment to improve compliance with certain safety parameters.


Warranty

The PCm product line is built upon a field-proven, extremely reliable architecture and stands up to the harshest electrical environments. The PCm is backed by a five-year warranty on all power and control systems.


Approvals, Pricing and Availability

The PCm Series Medical-Grade Power Conditioners are listed for UL60601-1/UL2601 and CSA-C22.2 M601.1 compliance and carry the CE Mark for testing to the EN60601-1 standard for Medical Electrical Equipment. Designs are compliant with all specification parameters for Class I, Type B equipment (such as earth leakage and enclosure leakage currents). The new PCm Series Medical-Grade Power Conditioners are available now at 1500, 2000 and 3000 VA and carry a list price from $1136-2050 (USD), depending upon model selected.

One hundred percent of Artists earnings from makeup services provided to clients and celebrities attending, appearing, or performing at the 2005 Grammy Awards and Academy Awards will be donated to Save the Children's Tsunami Relief Fund.”



A R T I C L E:

COSTA MESA, Calif. /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Makeup Artists with Empire Agency in Southern California are continuing the fundraising efforts for tsunami victims by donating their earnings. One hundred percent of Artists earnings from makeup services provided to clients and celebrities attending, appearing, or performing at the Grammy Awards and Academy Awards will be donated to Save the Children's Tsunami Relief Fund.

Many Makeup Artists worked behind the scenes at the Tsunami Relief Telethon. They were extremely moved by the spirit, generosity, time and effort given by the talent for this great cause. Inspired by what the celebrities accomplished, the Artists found a way to give more than their one day's donation of time at the telethon. Currently we have over 20 additional Makeup Artists who have committed to donating their entire paychecks from both events.

"The celebrities involved with the telethon did an incredible job raising awareness and funds for the Tsunami Relief. Since we don't have the ability to persuade society to donate, we thought that we would continue to donate our time, talent and resources," said Donna Mee, President of Empire Agency.

"This way, people that would be paying for the services anyway, will be getting a bonus. They'll be helping victims of the tsunami, have a tax deductible write off, and look great while doing so! It's a way for us to collaborate from behind the scenes and help the effort continue to be a great success."

Website Releases Top 10 Romantic Lines From New English Students, Celebrates Lighter Side of Learning a Language

Author: InnocentEnglish.com
Dateline: Wed, 02 Feb 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “DENVER, CO /Send2Press Newswire/ -- InnocentEnglish.com, a new website dedicated to collecting and sharing humorous English mistakes, announces the release of its first annual 'Top 10 Most Romantic Lines From New English Language Students' for Valentine's Day.”



A R T I C L E:

DENVER, CO /Send2Press Newswire/ -- InnocentEnglish.com, a new website dedicated to collecting and sharing humorous English mistakes, announces the release of its first annual "Top 10 Most Romantic Lines From New English Language Students" for Valentine's Day.

"Any of us learning a new language is going to make a lot of mistakes, and a few are going to be funny enough to pass around," said Bryant Oden, creator of the site and author of the new book "Never Lick a Gift Horse in the Mouth: And 400 Other Innocent Mistakes From New English Language Students." "We thought in honor of Valentine's Day we would ‘pass around' this very romantic top 10 list."


The list follows:


Top 10 Most Romantic Lines From New English Language Students:


10. I fell in love with her the first time I sawed her.

9. He had such a worm heart.

8. We were two sheeps passing in the night.

7. We have hated each other for so long. I want to borrow the hatchet.

6. My dentist makes me blush twice a day.

5. I don't know if he will propose, but I am expecting.

4. I have something exciting to tell you. My girlfriend and I got enraged last night!

3. The groom was wearing a very nice croissant.

2. He lifted the veal off her face and gave her a big kiss.

1. I think she is really glad she got marinated.



Other innocent mistakes on the website include:


Recipes: Next, chop all the vegetarians into little pieces.

Health: It is dangerous to smoke while you are becoming pregnant.

Sports: It was so exciting to watch! The cheerleaders threw up high into the air.

Politics: The President got off the plane and gave a big kiss to the first ladder.

Grammar: Should I have a coma in the middle of this sentence?

Music: When he was through singing he had a standing ovulation.

Food: Do you like this food? I made it from scratching!

Parents: My bed has three blankets and a large guilt my parents gave me.

Weather: Rain makes old cars lust. So be careful about that. Once a car starts lusting, there's no way to stop it!

Travel: You can't sleep with me because it is too crowded. But you can probably sleep with my sister. That's what most of my friends do when they visit.



"The website and the book are really just a celebration of the lighter side of learning language," Oden said. "I still remember when I went on a college mission trip to an orphanage in Mexico, and I enthusiastically greeted each of the children with ‘Buenos Dios! Buenos Dios!' After some puzzled looks and a lot of laughter, a friend explained that I wasn't saying ‘Good day.' I was running around to each of these kids shouting ‘Good God! Good God!' The laughter of that moment really broke the ice with the children, and I guess it left a strong impression on me. Since then, I've had an appreciation for the way innocent language mistakes can bring smiles and laughter, and just maybe make someone's day a little brighter."

Oden, who is from Colorado, currently attends the University of Alberta, where he is pursuing a Masters degree in Education. The new book, "Never Lick a Gift Horse in the Mouth: And 400 Other Innocent Mistakes From New English Language Students" (ISBN: 1-932738-13-4, Western Reflections Publishing, $10) is available through most bookstores, amazon.com, and through the website, www.Innocentenglish.com

CHARLOTTE, NC /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Muzak (www.muzak.com) announced today that they are incorporating a special events and holiday calendar into their core programming lineup.

"There's a powerful connection between music, our memories and emotions. Spotlight certainly adds some value to our product, but it's really about celebrating music and simply having some fun," said Muzak spokesman Sumter Cox.

The company currently has 72 core music programs, covering all genres and eras of music. The programs are designed to capture the energy, mood and style of their clients' brands. (Contrary to the belief of many, Muzak does not play synthetic instrumental versions of popular songs. The songs they include in their programs are the same songs you hear on the radio or in your CD player.)

When Ray Charles passed away last September, the company paid tribute to the beloved artist by increasing the rotation of his music in its Classic Soul, '50s & '60s Hits and Jukebox Gold programs.

"Response from our clients was amazing," Cox said. "They really appreciated that we honored Ray and asked if we could do more things like that in the future."

In response, Muzak has expanded its calendar of events to include important dates in music history, notable birthdays and current events as they arise.

For the official launch of Spotlight, Muzak is celebrating Black History Month by highlighting a different African American artist each day. Other artists and events will be featured throughout the year including Eric Clapton, John Lennon and the twentieth anniversary of Live Aid. A full calendar of Spotlight events is posted on the company's website (www.muzak.com).

The company is hosting a launch party for employees at its home office on February 4. The event will include special live performances by local artists and a musical tribute to influential African American musicians.

Author: GEEBEE Marketing, Inc.
Dateline: Fri, 28 Jan 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “HIGHLAND PARK, NJ /Send2Press Newswire/ -- When they first formed GEEBEE Marketing(R), Inc. in 1997, Gayle Brill Mittler and Robert Kersey, former colleagues in a large toy corporation, had one common vision: to create a complete line of games, toys, and puzzles that would bring the vast rich and diverse history of America's nearly 15,000,000 citizens of African American descent into homes and classrooms. ”

Black Heritage Series(tm) Games and Puzzles, and Black History School Challenge Fund

HIGHLAND PARK, NJ /Send2Press Newswire/ -- When they first formed GEEBEE Marketing(R), Inc. in 1997, Gayle Brill Mittler and Robert Kersey, former colleagues in a large toy corporation, had one common vision: to create a complete line of games, toys, and puzzles that would bring the vast rich and diverse history of America's nearly 15,000,000 citizens of African American descent into homes and classrooms.

Today, the company's Black Heritage Series(tm) line includes three games and two puzzle assortments. The products are manufactured for GEEBEE Marketing, Inc. by the Pressman Toy Corporation of New Brunswick, New Jersey. The line is distributed by retailers such as Wal-Mart Stores, K-mart, Walgreen's, as well as gift and book stores across the country, online retailers and others. Its success has earned GEEBEE Marketing recognition as a leading marketer of ethnic products.

The company's games include: 1. My First Matching game, for ages 3-6 years, teaches about African American culture, 2. I Can Do Anything(tm) career path game, for ages 4-8 years, a board game that details the many different career opportunities available today, and 3. The Black Heritage Trivia game, for ages 8 through adult, with over 1200 questions on African American history and culture. The puzzle assortments include: Madame CJ Walker 24 piece puzzle, Elijah McCoy 24 piece puzzle, Buffalo Soldiers 100 piece puzzle, and Harriet Tubman 100 piece puzzle.

This year the Black Heritage Series will be featured in promotional main traffic areas during February in over 350 Wal-Mart Stores across the country.

"As an African American child growing up in America, I had to learn about my heritage by myself. Today I can help children grow up aware of the contributions African Americans have made to the development of our great country," said Robert Kersey, creator of the Black Heritage Trivia game.

"The Black Heritage Series is gaining a market share. The interest in black heritage is growing beyond just black families," reported Al Johnson, former manager of the Wal-Mart store in Princeton, New Jersey.

"It actually took us several years to convince retailers of the large potential market waiting for products like ours," said Gayle Brill Mittler, one of the founders of GEEBEE Marketing, Inc. "Today retailers more readily recognize the importance of the African American and other minority markets."

Brill Mittler did not stop her efforts to expand education of African American history with the success of their Black Heritage Series. In 2003, she founded The Black History School Challenge Fund, a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation. It is based in Highland Park, NJ. The Fund's initial mission was to introduce the Black History School Challenge Contest in schools as a means of gaining inclusion of African American history in public schools, at minimal cost (to the schools), and in a timely manner.

The Black History School Challenge Fund is comprised of educators, business people, and community leaders who are interested in ensuring the study of African American history throughout the school year. Ms. Rochelle Gray, a teacher in Piscataway, New Jersey schools created the Black History School Challenge Contest. The contest is based on the Black Heritage Trivia game's 1200 questions. Ms. Gray adapted the game for usage in in-school competitions. Members of the Fund procured corporate donations to award United States Savings Bond prizes to individual or team winners. Most of the funds donated to date have come from Pressman Toy Corporation and GEEBEE Marketing, Inc.

The first Black History School Challenge Contest was run in the Alexander Hamilton Middle School in Elizabeth, NJ in 2003. Students were divided into teams. Teams competed against each other in a "Brain Bowl" format. Their enthusiasm was overwhelming.

"I wished I'd taped the final game between the two 8th grade teams. It was absolutely wonderful and exciting. The two teams were so pumped up. They had banners and posters while rooting for their teams. You'd have thought it was an athletic event," said Ms. Gray.

After word of the successful event held in Elizabeth spread, the Fund was approached by several other school districts. Some of the contests have been run amongst 5th graders (Conerly Road School in Franklin, NJ), high school students (Project Grad students in Newark NJ), and 8th graders (Alexander Hamilton Middle School in Elizabeth NJ). The Fund now has a waiting list of schools hoping to participate in the program.

"Word is certainly spreading," said Gayle Brill Mittler. "We've been contacted by schools in New York and Virginia who want to participate in the program. This is exactly what we had hoped would happen. The goal is to bring African American history into the mainstream. To have all of our children learn it as a part of American history, not just in February, but all year-round."
