PAMPLONA, Spain - July 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Although notorious basketball legend Dennis Rodman's return to the bulls won't win him another NBA championship, it did raise money and awareness for a much-deserving charity, as the "Worm" participated in his second Running of the Bulls event sponsored by Internet casino GoldenPalace.com.

This is the second year in a row that Rodman has participated in the famous Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain to benefit charity. Although last year's run was extremely successful in raising money for Multiple Sclerosis awareness, Rodman was disappointed with his performance because he "expected to be closer to the bulls". He promised that this year he would be "a little closer down, all the way down...and get right to the bulls."

Rodman's sponsor GoldenPalace.com held Rodman to his promise and chose a local charity to support this year, The Multiple Sclerosis Association of Navarra (ADEMNA). The charity received a check for Euro 10,000 or approximately $12,000 USD.

"We are very pleased to have been a part of this event again," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "Anytime we have an opportunity to raise awareness and money for such a deserving cause, we will jump at the chance. Hopefully the money raised will help find a cure for the debilitating disease. We wish the Multiple Sclerosis Association of Navarra all the best in their continued efforts."

Rodman has been one of many celebrity spokespeople for GoldenPalace.com, but he is obviously one of their favorites, as he shares the same love of shock value and outrageous fun that the casino has exhibited in their marketing flair over the past few years.

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.

Grifco International Acquires Global Oil Tools and Global Libya Manufacturing Facility Project

Author: The Lyamec Corporation
Dateline: Mon, 11 Jul 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “HOUSTON, TX - July 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Lyamec Corporation announced today that Grifco International's (OTC Pink Sheets: GFCI) acquisition of Global Oil Tools for $4.5 million in cash and stocks has been finalized after intense negotiations involving Global Oil Tools, The Lyamec Corporation and American Finance Corp.”



A R T I C L E:

HOUSTON, TX - July 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The Lyamec Corporation announced today that Grifco International's (OTC Pink Sheets: GFCI) acquisition of Global Oil Tools for $4.5 million in cash and stocks has been finalized after intense negotiations involving Global Oil Tools, The Lyamec Corporation and American Finance Corp.

Global Oil ToolsThe combination of cash and stock allowed Grifco to negotiate better acquisition terms than that of the previous LOI in February, 2005. The new terms provide a superior transaction for Grifco's share holders. Grifco acquired Global assets without having to assume the liabilities of approximately $840,000.00 USD. This strategic acquisition is an attractive fit with Grifco's overall operations and capabilities.

The acquisition of Global Oil Tools enhances Grifco's ability to realize significant economies of scale by targeting synergies in a number of operations and corporate functions, including: cost savings, productivity, opening new markets, and accretive on earnings and cash flow per share basis, which creates long term investment value for shareholders.

Additionally, under a marketing development and marketing agreement with The Lyamec Corporation, Grifco has positioned itself for a 55% stake ownership of the technology transfer, manufacturing and distribution rights for Libya, The Middle East, Africa, and Azerbaijan. In connection with this transaction, Grifco would now directly benefit from a 20 million USD order originally set to kick start the Libya manufacturing facility in Libya. The Libya manufacturing facility currently approved for implementation under Libya's Law #5/1997, will pave the way for Grifco to access and expand its international sales by tapping a 400 million USD market. The strategic manufacturing facility is staged to be one of the most advanced manufacturing and distribution facilities in all of Africa.

Overhauling and modernizing Libya's deteriorating oil fields and restoring them to their previous production levels after 25 years of U.S. sanctions presents an excellent opportunity for Grifco to sell its oil, tools, coil tubing and jet motor units. As is already expected, rentals of these advanced patented technologies have built a backlog of advance inquiries to utilize these units. The long awaited delivery of these items has attracted a wide array of Libyan representation and rental outlet requests to manage the sought after technology.

The Lyamec Corporation, a merchandising, distribution and marketing company with advanced specific market targeting and market campaigning capabilities, is leading the promotion of Grifco's new technologies in the region. "I sincerely thank R. Raymond at Lyamec, and Ben Gala at American Finance for their efforts. We truly would not have been able to put this deal together with out their dedication," said W.J. Barnhill of Global Oil Tools in a prepared statement. "They are the most visionary and efficient group I have ever met up with. I would also like to thank CEO Jim Dial for his dedication and candor. I feel that with his strength and knowledge at the helm, everyone will be better served in the long run. All of us bring knowledge and history into this win/win relationship. Now that we are share holders of Grifco International, we will be vigorous in ensuring that we are running a tight ship."

Additionally, American Finance Corp, who owns 20% of The Lyamec Corporation, has entered into agreement to provide export facilitation to help Grifco sustain the supply and commercial marketing aspects of the jet motor units. Further, American Finance Corp. has been retained by Grifco International to provide access to more than 40 Million USD in financial support in order to promote and export U.S. products to the contracted markets.

DENVER, Colo. - July 8 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Capital Hill Gold, Inc. (OTC BB: CHGI) reports that the Company has acquired a 100% interest in the Toiyabe Peaks Uranium project. The Toiyabe Peaks project covers sixty-two unpatented lode-mining claims (approximately 1,240 acres) on Federal lands administered by the Bureau of Land Management ("BLM").

Capital Hill - OTCBB CHGIThe Project is situated between two past-producing uranium mines, and covers more than three linear miles of altered, mineralized structure. Recent surface sampling along this regional trend has returned uranium assays with grades equal to those of the ore resources at the adjoining uranium mines; assays for precious metals have also been positive, with surface samples returning 0.08 to 0.22 oz Ag/ST.

Independent geologists who have visited the property and reviewed the geologic data have estimated that the TP project area could host a deposit on the order of 10 to 50 million tons grading 0.06% to 0.10% U3O8.

Capital Hill plans to immediately begin exploration work on the Toiyabe Peaks project. Detailed geologic mapping and sampling will be undertaken in conjunction with geophysical surveys to identify areas for trenching and drilling later this summer.

Company

Capital Hill Gold's strategic objective is to obtain controlling interests in properties with excellent exploration potential to become economically significant to world-class mineral deposits.

Dennis Rodman Crosses Line with Wife – Basketball Legend and Online Casino Team up for Wife-Carrying Contest

Author: GoldenPalace.com
Dateline: Tue, 05 Jul 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SONKAJARVI, Finland - July 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As an NBA legend, notorious party animal, headline-grabbing celebrity, wrestler, poker player, and talk-show host, Dennis Rodman has done it all.

SONKAJARVI, Finland - July 5 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- As an NBA legend, notorious party animal, headline-grabbing celebrity, wrestler, poker player, and talk-show host, Dennis Rodman has done it all. Except lend his unique brand of shock value to the 2005 Wife Carrying World Championships. Now "The Worm" proves there's a first time for everything.



Photo Caption: Dennis Rodman carrying local girl.

Rodman was on hand for the 2005 Wife Carrying World Championships in SonkajArvi, Finland, sponsored by GoldenPalace.com. Like so many of the world's more bizarre events, wife carrying has its origins buried deep in the bosom of an age old local tradition - in this case, the 19th century practice of wife stealing.

The competition has achieved enormous popularity worldwide spawning North American, Australian, German, South African, and Estonian Championships. But the World Championships will always be in SonkajArvi where it all started.

Unfortunately Rodman was not able to bring his wife because she recently broke her leg. He chose a lucky local girl to carry instead. The ex-basketball star only participated in the final 100 meters of the 235 meter course saying that he was not ready for such a grueling course. In a post-event press conference, Rodman promised to train harder for next year's competition. The Estonians went on to win the event.

The casino has been making headlines for years with their outrageous advertising, and this is just the kind of eccentricity that attracts the popular gaming site, as well as their celebrity spokesperson Rodman.

Rodman has been involved with several GoldenPalace.com marketing campaigns, including the famous Running Of The Bulls in Pamplona with Ray Sabbatini, a man stricken with Multiple Sclerosis, to support MS awareness and help find a cure for the deadly disease.

‘Ask Your Financial Advisor About … Long-Term Care Insurance.’ Huh?

Author: LTC Financial Partners LLC
Dateline: Thu, 30 Jun 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KIRKLAND, Wash. - June 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- When Americans worry about being incapacitated for long periods, they should head straight to their bank or brokerage office. This odd-seeming advice comes from LTC Financial Partners LLC, the nation's leading long-term care insurance brokerage representing multiple carriers. 'Today, health care is about the money, not just health,' says Dan Cahn, Senior Vice President of Business Development. 'And the biggest financial risk is long-term care, which can drain off all your assets -- everything you've accumulated over a lifetime.'”



A R T I C L E:

KIRKLAND, Wash. - June 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- When Americans worry about being incapacitated for long periods, they should head straight to their bank or brokerage office. This odd-seeming advice comes from LTC Financial Partners LLC, the nation's leading long-term care insurance brokerage representing multiple carriers. "Today, health care is about the money, not just health," says Dan Cahn, Senior Vice President of Business Development. "And the biggest financial risk is long-term care, which can drain off all your assets -- everything you've accumulated over a lifetime."



Photo Caption: Dan Cahn, of LTC Financial Partners.

Since long-term care needs can quickly wreck the best portfolio, "we're telling people, don't just ask your doctor, ask your money guy," says Cahn. "But make sure your financial advisor can deliver the latest long-term care expertise."

LTC Financial Partners is fielding a support service, spearheaded by Cahn, that gives financial advisors the necessary training and resources. At key banks, for example, advisors are bringing in specialists from LTC Financial Partners, much as a family doctor brings in a cardiologist. The specialists deliver arcane facts on the latest laws and tax breaks affecting long-term care; and navigate to myriad options through an ever-evolving computer database of policies and selection criteria. The support service is called the Financial Advisor LTC Outreach and Education Program, and Cahn is its Director.

"It's really complex to pick the right coverage from the right carrier, based on a person's financial situation, lifestyle, state of residence, and medical condition," Cahn points out. "The best advisors are seeking support from top-notch experts, but they're in a minority at present. Most are not yet using long-term care insurance as a financial planning tool; so we developed a unique turn-key solution that generates four times the results of the traditional approach."

LTC Financial Partners is providing its service to a growing number of financial organizations including major banks, NRL Federal Credit Union, and the National Network of Estate Planning Attorneys. In time, nearly all major financial institutions will serve as front-end conduits to long-term care protection, Cahn believes.

His organization also supports associations that have a special interest in protecting their members' nest eggs, including the National Association of Women in Insurance, and the United Methodist Association (through Anderson and Wayne Insurance Services).

A key part of the service is ready access to long-term care options from carriers that have proved sound and stable, including MetLife, John Hancock, Allianz, MedAmerica, Prudential, Physicians Mutual, Unum Provident, and Penn Treaty. "Some well-meaning associations offer long-term care policies from a single carrier, but one size does not fit all," says Cahn.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - June 29 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- For those that have always dreamed of breathing the air of the rich and famous comes the one and only "Celebrity Jar" containing the air of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. The Jar was sold for $529.99 on eBay to notorious collector of pop culture merchandise GoldenPalace.com.

The Celebrity Jar is an ordinary wide mouth, quart-sized mason jar that the seller brought to the premiere of Mr. & Mrs. Smith in Westwood, California. As megastars Pitt and Jolie strolled across the red carpet, the jar was opened to capture the air molecules expelled by the stars of the blockbuster movie.

The Jar was then sealed and placed in a safety deposit box to preserve the couple's air. Pictures from the premiere were plastered all over the seller's eBay page. Included with the jar are two Mr. & Mrs. Smith t-shirts and pictures featuring the Jar on location at the premiere.

The Celebrity Jar has been featured on several media outlets including Access Hollywood, Star Magazine, E! Online, MSNBC, ESPN, and CBS. Such extensive media coverage was sure to spark the attention of GoldenPalace.com, the Internet casino that turned the world's biggest auction site into the world's most unlikely advertising vehicle.

"This is another perfect example of pop culture phenomenon," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "There is literally nothing in this jar except air, and it has made headlines all over the country and even overseas. The sheer weirdness and absurdity of this item has made it a marketing success."

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, Marilyn Monroe's personal address book, and Pope Benedict XVI's previously-owned VW Golf have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.

Ionic Silver Complex Designed for Antimicrobial Use in Humans Receives U.S. Patent

Author: Invision International Health Solutions, Inc.
Dateline: Wed, 29 Jun 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - June 29 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Invision International Health Solutions, Inc., a pioneer in the field of ionic silver use as an antimicrobial in humans, today announced the issuance of a U.S. Patent on its 'ionic silver complex' technology. The use of ionic silver in medicine and industry has been growing rapidly in recent years due to its broad-spectrum antimicrobial qualities, the lack of toxicity to humans and the fact that ionic silver is not prone to causing resistant strains.”

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - June 29 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Invision International Health Solutions, Inc., a pioneer in the field of ionic silver use as an antimicrobial in humans, today announced the issuance of a U.S. Patent on its "ionic silver complex" technology.

The use of ionic silver in medicine and industry has been growing rapidly in recent years due to its broad-spectrum antimicrobial qualities, the lack of toxicity to humans and the fact that ionic silver is not prone to causing resistant strains. Ionic silver is well known to be a very powerful and very broad-spectrum antibacterial agent. In addition, evidence is mounting that silver ions have powerful antiviral effects as well. A recent university study suggested ionic silver to be effective against the SARS virus. In Europe, ionic silver is a medically approved treatment used to combat systemic viral conditions, including the common cold and flu.

"This patented technology represents a quantum leap beyond predecessor silver ion technologies, including those that utilize electrolysis for manufacturing, such as colloidal silver," says Jay Newman, the company's President and CEO. "In addition, this composition-of-matter patent provides far more meaningful protection than the product-by-process patents that have been issued on other silver products."

Silver ion compounds have been introduced in recent years for antimicrobial use in food-handling materials, medical devices, surface disinfectants, wound-care products, industrial materials, textiles, and more. In all cases, the key is the carrier agent that is used to stabilize the silver ions and "time release" them at the desired location in the given environment.

The patented technology is designed to utilize naturally occurring substances, such as citrate, to achieve optimal delivery and release of silver ions in the human body, in a highly efficient and entirely safe manner.

Silver ions, while being lethal to single-celled microorganisms, are harmless to human cells and, in fact, are increasingly being used in wound care due to their remarkable ability to facilitate the healing of tissue. The patented technology provides for a completely safe product due to the efficient delivery, introducing a minute quantity of silver to the body — less than what may exist in a person's average drinking water intake as a naturally occurring mineral. The difference is that this new technology is designed to deliver the silver as active silver ions with antimicrobial ability.

About the Company
Invision Intl.
Invision International Health Solutions, Inc. (www.silver100.com), is a privately-held company specializing in the research and development of ionic silver delivery solutions for human application. The company currently manufactures and markets a dietary supplement that consists of silver ions complexed with citrate and potassium in a water medium, the composition of which is covered under the patent. No studies have been conducted on this product to date and no health claims are made for it. The patent covers a broad range of potential formulations. The company intends to pursue rigorous clinical studies, and FDA dietary supplement "health claims" approval as well as drug approval, for certain embodiments of the current patented technology and future technologies.

Jay Newman is the company's founder, President & CEO. Recognized as a leading expert in the field of ionic silver, he has specialized in the field for more than ten years. Mr. Newman has been interviewed as the industry expert on Good Morning America, NBC TV News, Wired News, and dozens of radio shows for stories on ionic silver. He is a co-inventor on the patent.
