A R T I C L E:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - July 28 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A recent breakthrough in the field of In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), being offered in Southern California exclusively at the Sher Institute for Reproductive Medicine (SIRM-Los Angeles), may dramatically increase the odds of a woman getting pregnant through IVF, while at the same time reducing the likelihood of multiple births.

A new study co-authored by SIRM-Los Angeles physicians, Dr. Brian Acacio and Dr. Mory Nouriani, demonstrated that measuring a specific genetic marker produced by early human embryos could help predict the likelihood of a pregnancy.

The presence of this genetic marker above a specific threshold level was associated with a pregnancy rate of more than 70% in previously infertile women who underwent IVF for the study. In cases where the embryos showed a marker presence below the threshold level or an absence of the marker, the pregnancy rate was nearly three times lower - just 23%.

The study was published in the May 2005 issue of the medical journal Fertility and Sterility details the team's findings on the genetic marker, known as soluble Human Leukocyte Antigen-G (sHLA-G) (Volume 83, Issue 5, Pages 1410-1413: Soluble human leukocyte antigen G expression in phase I culture media at 46 hours after fertilization predicts pregnancy and implantation from day 3 embryo transfer).

This is the first method that enables a chemical evaluation of the "competency" of developing embryos. The test, referred to as the Embryo Marker Expression Test (EMET) is a non-invasive procedure that evaluates the level of the sHLA-G marker in the media surrounding individual embryos in culture, thereby leaving the embryo undisturbed.

"Current methods for selecting the best quality embryos for transfer to the uterus rely mainly on visual assessment of individual embryos by microscope," said Dr. Brian Acacio, co-author of the study and Medical Director of SIRM-Los Angeles. "These types of evaluations are severely limited in their ability to provide strong indication of subsequent normal embryonic and fetal development."

Because of the limitations of embryo assessment methods, there has been a tendency among many IVF practitioners to transfer more, rather than fewer embryos to the patient's uterus in the hope of improving the chances of pregnancy. This in turn has led to a high rate of high-order multiple pregnancies (triplets or more) with inherent long-term or even life-endangering risks to both mother and children.

"The explosion in the rate of higher order pregnancies as a result of IVF has created an enormous burden on the health care system," explains Dr. Mory Nouriani, co-author of the study and Associate Medical Director at SIRM-Los Angeles. "This is the primary reason why most insurance companies don't currently cover IVF."

"The advantage of this novel marker is twofold," says Dr. Nouriani. "First, it dramatically increases the chances of success with IVF in women who have embryos that are marker positive. Second, by allowing us to select the best embryos to transfer, we can reduce the total number of embryos transferred and thereby reduce the incidence of twin and triplet pregnancies."

For more information or to receive a copy of the study, please contact Dr. Brian Acacio or Dr. Mory Nouriani at 818-291-1985 or via email at losangeles @ haveababy.com.

POUGHKEEPSIE, NY - July 28 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The New York State Automobile Dealers Association has endorsed Norki Energy Systems' new COOL-SPACE(TM) Portable Evaporative Cooler. The NYSADA applauded the newest product of the Poughkeepsie, New York Company in its recent industry newsletter. The article touted COOL-SPACE as an economical solution to work spaces that are challenging to keep cool, "yielding happier employees during the hot summer months."



Photo Caption: The new COOL-SPACE Portable Evaporative Cooler can keep a large area cool and keep employees happy for just pennies a day.

At a recent NYSADA board meeting, directors were able to feel first-hand the cooling capability of COOL-SPACE units (coincidentally on a very hot day).

The COOL-SPACE units cost less than $1.00 a day to operate and can reduce temperatures in wide open spaces by as much as 20 degrees.

"A hot work environment can significantly affect employee productivity and your bottom line," says Norki Energy Systems President Bob Seligman. "With COOL-SPACE, you can keep a large area cool and keep employees happy for just pennies a day. It's a great investment."

According to a U.S. government report, a 90-degree day can result in anywhere from a 29 to 300 percent reduction in employee productivity.

Available in two sizes, COOL-SPACE can be used anywhere conventional air conditioning is not practical, such as in large work spaces, hangars, factories, auto repair facilities, dry cleaners, livestock areas, warehouses, county fairs, athletic fields or in outdoor activity event tents.

For more information about COOL-SPACE coolers, call 1-800-729-0424.

Fastest Talking Woman Takes Record-Breaking Dive to Titanic Wreckage

Dateline: Tue, 26 Jul 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ST. JOHNS, CANADA - July 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The world's fastest talking woman Fran Capo took the dive of her life on July 10 when she descended 2 1/2 miles under the Atlantic Ocean to say a speedy prayer for the victims of the infamous Titanic.

Internet Casino Sponsors Visit to Famous Shipwreck

ST. JOHNS, CANADA - July 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The world's fastest talking woman Fran Capo took the dive of her life on July 10 when she descended 2 1/2 miles under the Atlantic Ocean to say a speedy prayer for the victims of the infamous Titanic. Capo was sponsored by Internet casino GoldenPalace.com.



Photo Caption: Fran Capo, World's Fastest Talking Female, prepares for historic dive sponsored by GoldenPalace.com.

Capo had herself officially ordained for the dive and the US Navy chaplain wrote a special maritime, non-denominational memorial prayer for her to read at the site of the Titanic, something that has never been done.

No stranger to high-profile adventures, Capo set a new world record last year by being the first author to do a book signing at the top of Kilimanjaro.

Capo was sponsored by Internet casino GoldenPalace.com (http://www.GoldenPalace.com), the well-known gaming site that has been making headlines all over the world with their outrageous marketing stunts.

Other than scientists, only a handful of people have had the honor of visiting the ship that was made a household name by Hollywood director James Cameron's Oscar-winning film. Capo's dive may very well be the last as further attempts to dive to the Titanic may be prohibited.

"This has got to be my greatest adventure," said Capo in a post-dive interview. "I was 2 1/2 miles down in the sea, a place few have gone. I did the first ever prayer down there and I visited one of the most talked about ships of all time."

The entire story will be mentioned in her new book, "Adrenaline Adventures Two," due out next April 15th, the 93rd anniversary of the Titanic.

First Ever E-Democracy Symposium: ‘Campaign Guru’ to Speak

Author: ElectionMall Technologies Inc.
Dateline: Mon, 25 Jul 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - July 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Online campaigning expert and CEO of ElectionMall Technologies, Inc. Ravi Singh will discuss how candidates engage and inform voters through the Internet at the first ever international conference focused on local e-democracy. The International Symposium on Local E-Democracy will explore leading e-democracy trends around the world and will include field visits to area government and community e-democracy projects.”

Ravi Singh to Discuss Candidate-Voter Relationships in Minneapolis, Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. - July 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Online campaigning expert and CEO of ElectionMall Technologies, Inc. (www.electionmall.com) Ravi Singh will discuss how candidates engage and inform voters through the Internet at the first ever international conference focused on local e-democracy. The International Symposium on Local E-Democracy will explore leading e-democracy trends around the world and will include field visits to area government and community e-democracy projects.

Singh will be on a panel discussing e-voting, voter education, and voter participation in the information age.

"On-line voting should be a reality," said Singh. "Internationally, several countries are ahead of the United States in terms of taking advantage of different types of technology and the United States has struggled to standardize and modernize its voting and electoral procedures. I think this opportunity will be first of many on going discussions."

According to The Internet and Campaign 2004, a report by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, 35% of Internet users, or about 43 million people, said that they used email to discuss politics. 49% of all Internet users said "the Internet raised the overall quality of debate" during the 2004 campaign, while only 5% said the quality of debate was lowered.

"There is no doubt that the Internet is here to stay and will play an increasingly crucial role in upcoming elections whether from a candidate's or from a voter's perspective," said Singh. "We are just beginning to see the emergence of true e-democracy here in the United States and around the world."

Singh is the founder of ElectionMall Technologies, Inc., a leading non-partisan technology company that provides candidates, citizens, and political parties with tools and products to help them win elections.

Singh, a native of Chicago, Illinois, was the first Asian Sikh American to run for a seat in the Illinois State House with a turban and again made history during his campaign by launching both the first "online chat - town hall meeting" and Internet candidate campaign website in the district in 1997.

Singh has been described as the "Campaign Guru," and USA Today Weekend Magazine(R) recently named Ravi as one of the "five new powerbrokers whose sites and bites may well influence how you cast your ballot come November."

The International Symposium on Local E-Democracy will take place on July 26 at the Herbert F. Humphrey Center at the University of Minnesota.

FYI: Ravi will have a limited amount of time on Tuesday July 26, 2005 to conduct interviews with the media. Any press requests for interviews should be sent to press@electionmall.com. For further information regarding ElectionMall Technologies, Inc you can visit www.electionmall.com.


About ElectionMall Technologies Inc.

Founded by Ravi Singh in 1999 and funded by Microsoft executive George Spix, ElectionMall Technologies, Inc. is a leader in campaign and election technologies providing a "one-stop-shop" approach to clients ranging from the last two presidential races to local school board elections.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - July 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- CarryYou.com (www.CarryYou.com), a web shop specializing in life's little necessities for moms and dads in the business of parenting, today announced the launch of their latest stroller accessory, the Milan Cup Holder designed to outfit today's trendy European strollers with American ingenuity and convenience.



Photo Caption: Milan Cup Holder for Strollers from Carry You.

"The Milan Cup Holder was born out of our own hands-on experience," said Katie Dinslage, who founded CarryYou.com along with her sister Kari Northeim in 2005. "We are two moms on the go who had no place to put our drinks while pushing our upscale strollers. And in this case, necessity really was the mother of invention."

"We developed the stylish Milan stroller Cup Holder to solve our own problem, but soon, all of our friends were pleading with us to make them a cup holder too. And so we did and the rest is history!"

The Milan Cup Holder accessory attaches to the stroller with two Velcro-type loops that mount to the stroller's handle bar(s). The accessory is fully adjustable to fit most strollers currently on the market. The Milan Cup Holder features 2 cup holders which will accommodate anything from a regular pop can, to a medium water bottle, or a Starbuck's iced Venti Latte, 1 large Velcro pocket which is perfect for wallets, two smaller pockets for pacifiers or keys, and a large expandable pocket for everything in-between.

The convenient Velcro straps attach to the back of most strollers in seconds, and work particularly well with Peg Perego & Maclaren strollers because the Milan Cup Holder won't interfere with the reclining & collapsing features of these popular models.

The Milan Cup Holder is available on the CarryYou.com website for $39.95, and is available in a wide variety of custom colors and prints. CarryYou.com also offers the Sicily Cup Holder, which is designed specifically for side by side twin strollers.

"For moms and dads on the go, The Milan Cup Holder is like a dream come true," said Kari. "It really is the third hand every mom wishes she had!"

SIRM-New Jersey Becomes Exclusive NJ Provider of Breakthrough Infertility Treatment Technology

Author: Sher Institutes for Reproductive Medicine
Dateline: Fri, 22 Jul 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BEDMINSTER, NJ - July 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Sher Institute for Reproductive Medicine (SIRM-New Jersey) in Bedminster has implemented a new genetic test that may dramatically increase the odds of a woman getting pregnant through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), while at the same time reducing the likelihood of multiple births.”



A R T I C L E:

BEDMINSTER, NJ - July 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Sher Institute for Reproductive Medicine (SIRM-New Jersey) in Bedminster has implemented a new genetic test that may dramatically increase the odds of a woman getting pregnant through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), while at the same time reducing the likelihood of multiple births.

The test, developed by an affiliate of SIRM-New Jersey, analyzes the level of a genetic marker produced by healthy early human embryos. The presence of this genetic marker above a specific threshold level was found to be associated with a pregnancy rate of more than 70% in previously infertile women who underwent IVF in the study. In cases where the embryos showed a marker level below the threshold or an absence of the marker, the pregnancy rate was three times lower - just 23%. SIRM-New Jersey is the only IVF practice in the state that offers access to this genetic test.

A study published in the May 2005 issue of the medical journal Fertility and Sterility details the findings on the genetic marker, known as soluble Human Leukocyte Antigen-G (sHLA-G) (Volume 83, Issue 5, Pages 1410-1413: Soluble human leukocyte antigen G expression in phase I culture media at 46 hours after fertilization predicts pregnancy and implantation from day 3 embryo transfer).

This is the first method that enables a chemical evaluation of the "competency" of developing embryos. The test, referred to as the Embryo Marker Expression Test (EMET) is a non-invasive procedure that evaluates the level of the sHLA-G marker in the media surrounding individual embryos in culture, thereby leaving the embryos themselves undisturbed.

"Current methods for selecting the best quality embryos for transfer to the uterus rely mainly on visual assessment of individual embryos under a microscope," said Dr. Alexander Dlugi, Medical Director for SIRM-New Jersey. "These types of evaluations are severely limited in their ability to provide a strong indication of subsequent normal embryonic and fetal development."

Because of the limitations of embryo assessment methods, there has been a tendency among many IVF practitioners to transfer more, rather than fewer embryos to the patient's uterus in the hope of improving the chances of pregnancy. This in turn has led to a high rate of high-order multiple pregnancies (triplets or more) with inherent long-term or even life-endangering risks to both mother and children. "The explosion in the rate of higher order pregnancies as a result of IVF has created an enormous burden on the health care system," explains Dr. Dlugi. "This is the primary reason why most insurance companies currently don't cover IVF."

"The advantage of this novel marker is twofold," continues Dr. Dlugi. "First, it dramatically increases the chances of success with IVF in women who have embryos that are marker positive. Second, by allowing us to select the best embryos to transfer, we can reduce the total number of embryos transferred and thereby reduce the incidence of twin and triplet pregnancies."

For more information or to receive a copy of the study, please contact Dr. Alexander Dlugi at 908-781-0666 or via email at dlugia@sherinstitute.com.

Long Term Care Consumes ‘an Acre a Month,’ But Affordable Insurance Can Save the Farm, Experts Say

Author: LTC Financial Partners
Dateline: Mon, 18 Jul 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KIRKLAND, Wash. - July 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The mounting cost of long term care has become a "monster" that is devouring acre after acre of the nation's prime cropland, pasture, and woodlands. So says Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTC Financial Partners, LLC, the nation's leading long-term care insurance brokerage representing multiple carriers. It's a problem that affects agricultural families in every state, not just the farm belt.”

KIRKLAND, Wash. - July 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The mounting cost of long term care has become a "monster" that is devouring acre after acre of the nation's prime cropland, pasture, and woodlands. So says Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTC Financial Partners, LLC, the nation's leading long-term care insurance brokerage representing multiple carriers. It's a problem that affects agricultural families in every state, not just the farm belt.



"We've translated health-care dollars into acres," says Truesdell, "the land rural families have spent a lifetime acquiring and cultivating." It turns out that the current cost for one month of nursing-home care roughly equals the selling price of an acre of rural land.

The average rate for a private room in a nursing home is now $70,080 a year, according to the latest MetLife Market Survey of Nursing Home and Home Care Costs, released in September, 2004. That's about $5,840 a month, a typical conservative selling price for many fertile acres in agricultural areas. The ratio varies from state to state and farm to farm, of course.

Here are three examples:

* 441-acre farm, Clay County, Illinois: $1,411,200 ($3,200 per acre)

1.83 - Acres consumed by one month of long term care


* 165-acre farm, Covington County, Alabama: $1,200,000 ($7,273 per acre)

0.80- Acres consumed by one month of long term care


* 135-acre farm, Steuben County, NY: $375,000 ($2,778 per acre)

2.10 - Acres consumed by one month of long term care

Long term care expenses consume even more acres in some areas, especially when the farm or ranch is small. For example, a 97-acre farm in Crawford County, Kansas -- up for sale at $145,500 -- would be "eaten up" at the rate of 3.89 acres per month! "If you're not protected by insurance, you've got to figure that for every month you're laid up, there goes another acre ... or more," says Truesdell.

Agricultural families aren't the only Americans affected by the LTC "monster," of course. In suburban and urban areas, "The homes of many Americans are being eaten up fast by long term care costs, square foot by square foot versus acre by acre," says Truesdell.

What's the solution? "To save the farm or estate, get the right type of long term care insurance for your situation, and get it fast," says Truesdell. "It can be very affordable, and often tax-deductible at least in part. Many people are surprised when they learn the monthly rates and the tax breaks." Truesdell's national network of Partners (all experts on LTC insurance coverage) is offering free cost comparisons of policies available from multiple leading carriers.
