Two Families Receive Life-Changing Gifts from Safe Step Walk-In Tub. Co.


NDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 19, 2013   -- It began with a letter to a company in Nashville about a teenage girl in Indianapolis with a rare, life threatening disease.  
Nathan Hand, a friend of the girl's family, wrote to Safe Step Walk-In Tub Co., which had recently donated a state-of-the art therapeutic tub through its nationwide program of giving, Safe Step Cares. The recipient, Selena Yorke, suffers from Friedreich's Ataxia (FA), a rare neuromuscular disorder that affects every cell in her body as well as her heart. Hand was looking for a helping hand for his friend, Virgil Harris.

Virgil's 18-year-old daughter Jazmyne also has Friedreich's Ataxia, a severely debilitating, degenerative disorder which is inherited at birth. So determined to give Jazmyne the quality of life she deserves, Virgil set up a foundation, Jumpin' for Jazz, to tell her story, increase awareness about FA and raise funds to offset her medical bills. Hand thought the therapeutic tub would be perfect for the family.
Safe Step, which routinely receives numerous letters for tub donations, loved the letter and Jazmyne's story and decided to help. But the company got a big surprise when they called Virgil to let him know.  Virgil told Safe Step that the Templetons, another Indianapolis family who has two college-age daughters with FA, were more deserving. If there was one tub to give, Virgil said, give it to the Templetons.

Amazed by Virgil's thoughtfulness, Safe Step decided that one tub wasn't enough in Indianapolis, so it decided that the Templeton family, at Virgil's suggestion, would receive the tub for their daughters Amy and Emily, while Jazmyne would receive an additional tub too. 

"I am so grateful for this gift," said Harris. "I show my enthusiasm because Jazmyne will benefit but I am so thankful that the Templetons got their tub as well."
Virgil's thoughtfulness was not lost on the Templetons.
"Virgil's selflessness, and what Safe Step did in providing two tubs, is just unbelievable," said Paul Templeton, Amy and Emily's father. "Safe Step came in here and immediately you could tell that they were looking out for us, caring about our needs."

Earlier this year, Safe Step launched its Safe Step Cares program, in which the company rewards those in need on a regular basis at no cost.
"We're a family company and the connections we make along the way are so important to us that we wanted to be here to show them that they are now a part of our family," said Andi Allender, Safe Step's director of marketing. "As a result of Safe Step Cares, three girls in Indianapolis are going to gain independence and actually feel better when they bathe."

"Safe Step is in the business of changing the lives of our neighbors and friends, every day," said Safe Step CFO Stuart Hall, who made the trip from Nashville to Indianapolis to present the tubs in person with Allender at both residences. "We are pleased to be able to provide Jazmyne, Emily and Amy more safety and comfort as they cope with the effects of this unforgiving disease."
Perhaps Amy and Emily's mother, Shawna Templeton, summed the event up best: "For ten years, we've been like 'what are we going to do?' and then to have this all given to us today, I'm just amazed. I'm overwhelmed by the generosity, the love, the friendship and the beauty of it all."

Garcinia Cambogia Extract

Latest Published News Investigation Immediately Reveals The Most Important Details and Statistics Concerning Garcinia Cambogia Extract Products And Is
Now Made Available by Investigated Reviews.

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 11, 2013  -- Research Analyst Cindy Walters warns, ”With countless manufacturers now promoting their own Garcinia Cambogia Extract brand formulations, consumers are becoming overwhelmed as to which products are genuinely the most trusted and best performing.”

The Most Significant Facts Regarding Garcinia Cambogia Extract Are Now Published…
Many individuals have heard about the miraculous properties of Garcinia Cambogia Extract from Dr. Oz, from their favorite TV show, or possibly from a friend or a neighbor. In spite of their glowing reviews, however, consumers are wondering if this supplement really lives up to the hype.

Two-Pronged Approach to Weight Loss:
Naturally made from the tamarind fruit, this extract attacks fat in two ways: it helps the body to burn fat while also preventing new fat from forming. When users first start taking this supplement, they may not notice any changes on the scale right away--this happens because as the body burns fat, it replaces it with toned muscles which weigh slightly more than fat. Although user's weight may not change immediately, their measurements will.
Because this supplement slows the body's ability to absorb fat, it means that even if users don't change their eating habits, they will still lose fat. It's claimed the fat will melt off the body thanks to the natural properties of HCA, this supplement's main ingredient.

The Long Term Benefits From Garcinia Cambogia Extract
Research analyst Cindy Walters states, "Unfortunately, the market is flooded with diet products that help individuals lose weight quickly, only to let users crash and burn--ultimately, consumers may end up bigger than they were before they ever bought these products. Garcinia Cambogia Extract is different."
"Rather than relying on speedy ingredients that cloak your hunger, this supplement is made from natural ingredients that boost your serotonin levels. Serotonin is the amino acid in the brain that is most strongly linked to happiness, and when you feel happy, you are more likely to make smart dietary choices."
"In fact, the longer you use this supplement, the healthier your cravings will become. Instead of craving fatty or salty processed foods, your body will crave natural quickly-burning foods. When you fuel your body with natural foods, your digestive system understands what to do with those foods and how to process them. Ultimately, this makes it easier to lose weight, and your new eating choices will have huge long term benefits on your life."

Garcinia Cambogia Extract - Safe and Gentle
Many dietary supplements are packed with unwanted side effects. After taking other supplements, individuals may feel jittery, or they may get cramps or headaches. Garcinia Cambogia is made from all natural ingredients that have been used for centuries, and there are no side effects except for weight loss.
The main ingredient is hydroxycitric acid. This derivative of citric acid is found naturally in many tropical plants, and it is the active ingredient that makes this supplement so powerful and effective. However, keep in mind while shopping, Not All Supplements Are Created the Same.

Incorporating the Supplement – Very Simple and Easy To Use
Incorporating this supplement into anyone's day is simple. All anyone needs to do is take the supplement with a glass of water twice a day about an hour before eating. There is no need to change eating or exercising habits. By the time a person is ready to eat, they will be craving healthy foods, and their body won't feel over hungry. This makes weight loss simple.

Consumers Should Only Purchase Superior Products – 60% Hydroxycitric Acid
There are several different types of Garcinia Cambogia Extract on the market, and while shopping, consumers need to remember that a few supplements are superior to the rest. Unfortunately, the chance of losing weight on a subpar supplement is low. Look for extract supplements that are made from completely natural ingredients with no fillers, and before buying, make sure that the supplements have the correct amount of hydroxycitric acid. Unless the percentage is at least 60 percent hydroxycitric acid, it will not be effective enough for anyone's needs.

For Consumer Protection and Security:
Research analyst Cindy Walters states, "As a research analyst my job is to help individuals make the correct buying choices each day. There are times where it can be quite difficult to pick one single Top Rated Product Brand."

“I have made the decision to feature a specific web page that will enable consumers to visit the News and Media top rated brand names which are all verified exceptional supplements.”

Jim Carrey's Award-Winning Children's Book

LOS ANGELES, Dec. 17, 2013 How Roland Rolls, the first book by actor/artist Jim Carrey, recent winner of the 2013 Gelett-Burgess Children's Book Award, is being released on November 17th as an enhanced e-book, according to John Raatz, project manager for Carrey's Some Kind of Garden Media, publisher of the e-version and the original hardcover.
"We've produced three versions," says Raatz. "The ones for iPad and Nook will include all of the enhancements. A third version for Kindle and other e-readers is a more straightforward edition."   The
Apple-based version can also be read on iPads, iPhones and iPods, and on Apple computers equipped with their new iBook reader running on the recently released OS X Version 10.9 Mavericks operating system.
When Raatz says, "all of the enhancements," he's pointing to, perhaps, one of the most abundantly enhanced e-books for children yet produced. Carrey reads the book, voicing all of the characters and the majority of the sound effects. In addition, Carrey and his daughter, Jane, a singer-songwriter, perform four original, fully-produced songs that relate to the story and characters. There is also a variety of visual effects, movements and incidental characters (voiced by Carrey) that make the book a rollicking rich experience for readers aged four to eight, as well as "their grown-ups!" The songs are also available separately in the iTunes store now and soon through other e-tailers.
Carrey is just finishing work on his latest film, "Dumb and Dumber To," the long anticipated sequel to his iconic "Dumb and Dumber." On his occasional weekend shooting breaks, Carrey attended book signings for How Roland Rolls in New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Toronto, delighting thousands of supportive fans with autographs and photos.
How Roland Rolls, distributed by Perseus Distribution, has received broadly positive reviews and audience acceptance. Carrey, who has appeared in 33 feature length films, is one of the most successful actors in Hollywood.

Barbra Streisand

COLUMBIA RECORDS BACK TO BROOKLYN / Barbra Streisand's Fifth Number One Rated DVD, "Back To Brooklyn," Reaches Top Spot. (PRNewsFoto/Columbia Records)NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2013 Columbia Records -- In her sixth decade of providing music magic, Barbra Streisand continues to reach the number one position on the charts.  Her "Back To Brooklyn" concert DVD  has reached #1 on the Billboard Top DVD Music Videos chart. Achieving that distinction with the Columbia Records release, Streisand has now topped the DVD charts five times. Her success in the DVD field also includes having earned nine Gold DVDs, six Platinum and three Multi-Platinum.

On the CD charts, she has reached #1 nine times and is the only recording artist to have accomplished #1 albums in five consecutive decades. She has achieved 51 gold albums, 30 platinum and 13 multi-platinum.        
The "Back To Brooklyn" concert DVD captures Streisand's first musical performance in her native Brooklyn since she departed at age 16 to pursue her acting career and became one of the most popular and famous musical performers of her time. Throughout the concert, which includes nine songs she had never previously performed publicly, Barbra reflects upon her years growing up in Brooklyn, and to mark the occasion, she commissioned special lyrics for two songs:
ACT I opens with Andrew Lloyd Webber's "As If We Never Said Goodbye," which she turns into an homage to "the Brooklyn docks, the nova lox" and other fond memories of the sights and sounds of her youth.  When she triumphantly sings, "I've come home at last," the audience rises from their seats with a thunderous welcome back ovation.   
ACT II pays tribute to the people and places in Brooklyn today, with a re-written lyric to Cole Porter's "You're The Top": "You're the top, you're a Brooklyn trolley…you're the top you're a hot bialy!"
It also provides biographical video and still photo images of the artist's childhood and early career.
Among the many highlights of the evening was the first-time ever pairing of Barbra and her son Jason Gould. Other artists joining her include trumpet player Chris Botti and the young Italian singing quartet, Il Volo. Subsequent to the Brooklyn performances, Ms. Streisand presented a slightly revised version of the concert in record-breaking tours in the US, Canada, Europe and Israel, her first concert appearances in six years. 
The concert performance is directed by Barbra Streisand and Richard Jay-Alexander, and written by Barbra Streisand, Jay Landers, Richard Jay-Alexander and Jeffrey Richman. The "Back To Brooklyn" concert is also currently featured on Public Broadcasting System stations, where it has become the top-rated Great Performances series offering this season, raising funds for PBS local stations.
