The current Israeli Prime Minister was a General during the war and was wounded by Egyptian troops at the Suez Canal. One of the most well-known images of the war is of the bandaged Sharon meeting with fellow officials to plan strategy.

"We have received a lot of media attention with our unconventional marketing campaigns, especially our eBay purchases," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "Although the authentic head bandage worn by Ariel Sharon has political significance, the goal of our collection of religious, historical, and other unusual items is to make headlines worldwide and we want to continue to capitalize on this unique way to get exposure. We intend to bring the bandage on tour with our other items and will determine our future plans for it based on the reaction it receives. This extraordinary piece of history is a worthy addition to our collection and we are hopeful it will reach people all over the world."

Setting the standard in marketing creativity, GoldenPalace.com has devised some of the most exciting and outrageous advertising campaigns in the past few years. Recently, items such as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears' Pregnancy Test, and Pope Benedict XVI's previously-owned VW Golf have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.

Bush’s Plan for Israel to Quit the Gaza Strip Will Ignite Terror in the West Says Israel National Radio’s Rabbi Tovia Singer

Author: Tovia Singer Show / Israel National Radio
Dateline: Thu, 11 Aug 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “NEW YORK, NY - August 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- 'The destruction of twenty-five Jewish communities in Gaza and northern Samaria jeopardizes the security of the United States and its allies, and places the existence of the State of Israel in immanent danger,' states Rabbi Tovia Singer, host of Israel Nation Radio's Tovia Singer Show.”

NEW YORK, NY - August 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- "The destruction of twenty-five Jewish communities in Gaza and northern Samaria jeopardizes the security of the United States and its allies, and places the existence of the State of Israel in immanent danger," states Rabbi Tovia Singer, host of Israel Nation Radio's Tovia Singer Show.

"George W. Bush's demand that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon unilaterally expel 10,000 Israeli citizens from their homes rewards terror and threatens the existence of the Israeli State. No other democracy in history has ever forcibly uprooted thousands of its own citizens of one religion from their homes," says Singer, and adds that "This colossal error will incite additional Al-Qaida attacks on American soil as well."

Terrorist leaders explicitly declare what will follow Sharon's expulsion plan. A top Hamas figure in Gaza, Ahmed al-Bahar, stated that "Israel has never been in such a state of retreat and weakness as it is today following more than four years of the intifada. Hamas's heroic attacks exposed the weakness and volatility of the impotent Zionist security establishment. The withdrawal marks the end of the Zionist dream and is a sign of the moral and psychological decline of the Jewish state. We believe that the resistance is the only way to pressure the Jews."

Singer notes, "While Al-Qaida announces it has already opened a stronghold in Gaza, the Bush administration pressures Sharon to give the Palestinians an open the sea port in Gaza." Singer explains that if this critical waterway is opened to the Palestinian Authority, it will strengthen the forces of terror and huge Israeli population centers in the Negev and Mediterranean coastal cities will endure relentless rocket attacks, resulting in and countless lives of innocent Jewish children, woman, and men lost.

South African All-Natural Appetite Suppressant Getting a Dirty Name – What You Need to Know Before You Buy

Author: Millennium Health Supplements (Canada) Inc.
Dateline: Wed, 10 Aug 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “TORONTO, Canada - August 10 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Millennium Health Supplements (Canada) Inc., a Western Cape licensed importer of South African hoodia gordonii and Internet retailer of HoodiaHoodia thinks this all-natural appetite suppressant is the most incredible discovery in the weight loss industry - but beware, hoodia scams are all around.”



A R T I C L E:

Hoodia Gordonii, Internet Fraudsters are Dragging the Good Name of Hoodia Gordonii Through the Mud!

TORONTO, Canada - August 10 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Millennium Health Supplements (Canada) Inc., a Western Cape licensed importer of South African hoodia gordonii and Internet retailer of HoodiaHoodia thinks this all-natural appetite suppressant is the most incredible discovery in the weight loss industry -- but beware, hoodia scams are all around.

Everyone is jumping on the hoodia gordonii bandwagon and the Internet is teeming with new companies producing a wide range of hoodia gordonii products. While there are some real hoodia products available you will have to do your homework to find them.

Many products being sold as Hoodia Gordonii are filled with "unidentifiable plant material," starch, rice powders, and in some reported cases even filled with sawdust. Some sites even claim to have a 20:1 extract, which is not possible. The appetite-suppressing molecule in Hoodia Gordonii cannot be isolated by giant pharmaceutical companies that would like to produce a drug made from Hoodia Gordonii, so it makes sense when Jen Cully, President of Millennium Health Supplements (Canada) Inc. says; "If big pharma cannot isolate the molecule then how is it possible to have a 20:1 extract? What are they extracting?"

Other sites claim they are authorized to rank Hoodia Gordonii products and suppliers. These sites are always supported by one of the top ranking suppliers listed on that particular site and the site is just used to trash competitors. There are 5 or 6 of these sites on the net and none of them are authorized by any agency to rate hoodia gordonii products or the companies that sell them. These sites provide a great deal of misleading information and steal business from the honest and hardworking people.

Cully says, "Do lots of research before you purchase any products over the Internet. Make sure that the company you purchase from has a telephone number and address listed on the site. Just because you are on the Internet doesn't mean you can't call them to ask questions and talk to a customer service representative. Send them an email and see how they respond. Look for a money back guarantee and don't be fooled by companies that offer a 'double your money back' guarantee." Check with BBB and other consumer sites to see if the company you want to purchase from has had any negative reports filed against them.

All-natural and herbal products don't work the same way pharmaceuticals or drugs do. Drugs are geared to work for everyone, every time. Natural products can take longer to work and they don't work on everyone.

While the effects of hoodia gordonii can begin to work immediately on some people, it can take 2 or 3 weeks to kick in for others. Unlike man-made drugs, herbals often work more slowly. Ms. Cully states that, "The majority of our customers find that they feel the effects within the first few days and some, like Leslie Stahl on 60 Minutes, begin to feel the effects within a day or so. If you are one of those that hoodia gordonii does not work on right away, be patient. We have had many customers tell us that they began to feel the effects just when they were nearing the end of the first bottle."

Last but by all means not least, stay away from products that contain stimulants. Hoodia gordonii has no stimulants and no known side effects. Some products state that they contain fat burners and metabolizing agents which really only speed up your heart rate creating a jumpy and nervous energy. Stimulants can cause your blood pressure to elevate and they can be extremely dangerous. Read the list of ingredients in any blended products and look them up on the Internet to see if they are a stimulant.

Sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. Give yourself a chance. Look for results to show within 3 -­ 4 weeks of beginning any weight loss program or regimen. If you expect to see results in less time it is unreasonable and you are bound for failure. Be patient and sensible if you are trying to lose excess weight. Whether it is 20 lbs or 100 lbs, you didn't gain that weight overnight and you shouldn't try to take it off overnight. Walking an extra 1000 steps 3 or 4 times per week can make a huge difference in speeding up weight loss, it is a natural way of boosting your metabolism and best of all, it's free. Make a plan yourself and even if you fall of off your program get right back on it the next day.

"The line that we created is a fresh take on men's underwear that reflects the current trends in men's outerwear, namely that of the use of bright colors, bold designs, and comfortable fit."

Now that men are finally catching up with women when it comes to shopping for clothes and accessories, it comes as no surprise that Artificial Flavor would step in to satisfy the increasing demand for quality men's underwear that has more style than your father's old 'tightie whities' or plaid boxer shorts. "We see a clear line for our men's underwear in the market today and if we give it the right kind of attention it will be a core differentiating product against the saturated market of denim and woven shirts," says CFO Antonio Vitti. Spending on men's apparel rose 4.4 percent during the 12 months ending March 31, compared with 4 percent for women's, according to the NPD Group, a market research firm in Port Washington, N.Y.

"This is one of the main factors that we took into account when we designed this line," states Chief of Sales Marcus Prato. "Men are no longer afraid to spend money on clothing, because they want to look good and feel confident at all times. In addition to spending habits, more and more men are no longer confined to the safe black, grey, and white color palette for their wardrobe."

Mary Jo Feldstein validates this point in STLtoday.com: "These young male shoppers respond to clothing grouped by trend and are willing to wander a little. They also go shopping more often and not just when they need something."

The debut line consists of 3 primary cuts: Boxer Briefs, Hipsters, and Briefs. Each of these cuts are further broken down into 2 unique patterns that in turn offer 3 color combinations for a total of 18 unique pieces.

"Since we are currently focused on underwear, we felt the need to offer a wide selection to address the varying tastes of our customers," says Lawrence Roberts, Chief of Production for Artificial Flavor.

Examples include:

* Boyshorts: retro-styled mid-length hipsters that have contrast trim at the leg openings

* Speedsters: mid-length hipsters with bold asymmetrical design front and back

* Magnums: two tone briefs with single stripe and contrast waistband


Now that this exciting underwear has finally hit the street, it's just a matter of time before additional retailers rush to pick them up to get a piece of the pie: "The challenge for retailers is to ... sell the more body-conscious, more colorful clothing that some men might be willing to try," states Feldstein.

All of Artificial Flavor's underwear is made in the USA, 100% sweatshop-free. They are currently available in select stores and online specialty retailers, in addition to their own website: www.aflavor.com.

New Floors That Creak and Look Like Those From an Old Southern Mansion for ‘The Sanctuary’ at Kiawah Island, S.C.

Dateline: Tue, 09 Aug 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “VENTURA, Calif. and KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. - August 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Patina Old World Floors was instructed by their client to create floors to look like they came from an old Southern mansion and creak like such old floors should.

VENTURA, Calif. and KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. - August 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Patina Old World Floors (www.patinawoodfloors.com) was instructed by their client to create floors to look like they came from an old Southern mansion and creak like such old floors should. By using old world hand finishing methods coupled with modern technology, they did exactly that for the new 5 star luxury resort, "The Sanctuary" at Kiawah Island, S.C. that opened in the second half of 2004.

Quoting USA Today "The first thing you notice are the floors. Painstakingly hand-planed to create the uneven look found in historic Southern mansions, the exquisite walnut planks in the lobby of the 8-month old Sanctuary at Kiawah Island ooze warmth and sophistication." They may look like old floors and sound like old floors but that is where the resemblance ends. Unlike historic houses in the South, this nine and ten inch wide walnut plank was engineered using a 3/8" sawn wear-layer veneer pressed to a 3/8" plywood substrate which makes a more stable product in relation to the expansion/contraction factor. And this is important.

This lovely distressed flooring fills the expanse of the spacious lobby. It also extends into the open plan lounge, the reading room, the lounge bar, along the endless hallways that lead left and right from the entrance. It wraps around the graceful sweeping southern belle staircases and on to the entrance of the Jasmine Cafe on one side and to the northern wing on the other. It also ascends the staircases themselves, whose risers and stair treads are paved with the same finished walnut as are the floors of the mezzanines at the top of both staircases.

If this wide expanse of flooring shrinks and swells as normal wide plank would do in this environment which is sometimes hot and humid and other times cool and, the flooring would either pull away from the walls or push against them causing damage to both the flooring and the walls. Thus Patina, working closely with the architects and installers, developed a new flooring using both ancient techniques for the look and feel and modern technologies for the stability - not to mention the sound.

This is the essence of Patina Old World Floors; they work hand in glove with their clients to custom design just exactly the flooring that the client has in mind while taking into consideration more than the look and feel required.
