Orlando, FL (PRWEB) May 29, 2015

The Lupus Foundation of America, Florida Chapter (LFAFL) will be holding a series of programs at Nova Southeastern University at 4850 Millenia Blvd., Orlando, FL 32839, Room #111 on Saturday, May 30, 2015 from 10:00am through 6:30pm. These programs will feature national bestselling authors and will offer learning opportunities about lupus, one of the world’s most cruel and mysterious diseases.

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Its effects can range from mild to life threatening and there is no cure. This disease affects 1 in 185 people and there are about 100,000 Floridians living with lupus. Women make up 90% of lupus patients and women of color are two to three times more likely to develop lupus than Caucasians. While those who are diagnosed are generally women and girls of childbearing age (15 – 44 years old); lupus can affect anyone regardless of age, sex, or race.

LFAFL is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all people affected by lupus through research, education and advocacy. As the Lupus Foundation of America’s only Florida Chapter, we provide support, educational programs, and personalized help to the 100,000 people living with lupus in Florida and their loved ones while also supporting research to advance the science and medicine of lupus and to one day find a cure.

The schedule of events offered by LFAFL on Saturday, May 30 at Nova Southeastern University is as follows:

10:00am – 3pm: Support Group Facilitator Training

LFAFL’s support groups are regularly scheduled in-person or virtual gatherings of people living with lupus, their family, friends, or caregivers. The groups are run by trained facilitators. Those who are interested in starting a group or becoming a co-facilitator of an existing group are invited to attend this facilitator training which focuses on group dynamics, how to organize and sustain a successful support group, and LFA policies and procedures.

10:00am – 3pm: Lupus Advocate Bureau Training

This is a new program offered by LFAFL and this is the first time our organization is presenting this training. The Lupus Advocate Bureau’s (LAB) mission is to raise the awareness of lupus by sharing personal stories and accurate information about lupus and LFAFL to targeted audiences in Florida, contributing to earlier diagnosis, proper treatment, and improved prognosis for those affected by this disease. The LAB’s mission is also to heighten understanding of the need for lupus research on the state and federal level and the LFAFL’s ongoing need for financial support.

3 – 6:30pm: Lupus Q&A Seminar

This Lupus Q&A Seminar will feature the authors of the bestselling resource for lupus patients, their families, and medical professionals; Lupus Q&A. This book is the go-to guide for sufferers of lupus – 1.5 million people in the United States alone. Dr. Robert Lahita and Dr. Robert Phillips—leading experts on lupus—discuss topics in a clear, concise, and easy-to-follow Q&A format. Lahita and Phillips review the newest drugs and explore beneficial complementary and alternative treatments, including new data on hormone use. Demystifying everything from diagnosis to the disease’s psychological impact, Lupus Q&A prepares readers to face the challenges ahead—and to restore their health and their lives.

This is an event not to be missed as it provides incredible opportunities for learning more about this disease and how community members throughout the state can make an impact.

Keystone, Colo. (PRWEB) May 20, 2015

The Honey Bee Health Coalition applauded the announcement of the National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and other Pollinators and the accompanying Pollinator Research Action Plan, released today by President Barack Obama’s Pollinator Health Task Force. The Strategy represents a critical step in improving the health of honey bees and other pollinators that support billions of dollars annually in U.S. and Canadian agriculture. The Strategy sets clear goals for pollinator health that underscore the importance of the Honey Bee Health Coalition’s ongoing work. The Honey Bee Health Coalition commends the Task Force for its emphasis on public-private partnerships to improve pollinator health and stands ready to provide coordination and leadership. The Strategy specifically cites the Coalition as an example of a public-private partnership and vehicle for collaboration, outreach, and education.

“The Strategy released by the National Pollinator Health Task Force underscore the importance of pollinator health for agriculture and the environment,” said George Hansen, a commercial beekeeper, past president of the American Beekeeping Federation, and a member of the Coalition’s Steering Committee. “As one of the largest and most diverse public-private partnerships already working to address honey bee health across agriculture, the Honey Bee Health Coalition is eager and ready to support the implementation of the Strategy. In fact, the Coalition is already working to advance collaborative solutions and is poised to drive commitments and positive impacts on the ground.”

Agriculture, healthy lifestyles, and worldwide food security rely on honey bee health. The Honey Bee Health Coalition works at the intersection of honey bee health and agriculture, bringing together stakeholders from across the agricultural supply chain as well as from government, academia, and conservation. The Coalition advances public-private solutions for honey bee health in four priority areas: hive management, forage and nutrition, crop pest management, and outreach, education, and communications.

“The Honey Bee Health Coalition appreciates the Task Force’s comprehensive, multi-factor approach recognizing the need for collective action on multiple fronts as well as the positive role that all stakeholders can play in this effort,” said Julie Shapiro, Coalition facilitator and senior policy director at Keystone Policy Center. “The Strategy accentuates the importance of the work that the Coalition is already undertaking that will help achieve goals related to reducing honey bee colony overwintering losses and restoring and enhancing pollinator habitat. Coalition members look forward to working with the Task Force and other private and public partners in implementing the Strategy to achieve a vision of Healthy Bees, Healthy People, Healthy Planet.”


Honey Bee Health Coalition Activities Advance the Task Force Strategy and Goals

In June 2014, President Obama established the Task Force to identify essential actions needed in the categories of pollinator research, public education, and public-private partnerships. The Task Force has identified critical goals related to reducing overwintering losses for managed honey bees, restoring and enhancing pollinator habitat, and increasing monarch butterfly populations. The Honey Bee Health Coalition’s public-private partnership activities complement and advance the goals of the Task Force in the following manner:

** The Coalition is working to put the best available tools, techniques, and technologies in the hands of beekeepers so they can better manage their hives. President Obama called for a need for “… expanded collection and sharing of data related to pollinator losses [and] technologies for continuous monitoring of honey bee hive health … and new cost-effective ways to control bee pests and diseases.” The Coalition aims to support on-the-ground efforts underway to provide beekeepers with monitoring and expert advice and analyses to best manage hive health, as well as to promote development of new products and use of best practices for Varroa mite control. These activities will collectively help to reduce overwintering losses of managed honey bee colonies:

The Coalition is raising awareness of and helping to increasing funding for the Bee Informed Partnership’s Tech Transfer Teams to provide essential extension, education, and monitoring to beekeepers at all scales.

The Coalition is working in partnership with the private and public sector to prioritize and accelerate the identification and registration of products to effectively control Varroa destructor mites.

The Coalition is synthesizing best available information from academia, industry, and the public sector and developing first-of-their kind resources for commercial, small scale, and hobbyist beekeepers that bring together, in a single place, information on tools and practices for Varroa mite control.

** Coalition members are collaborating to ensure honey bees — especially those in and around production agriculture — have access to a varied and nutritious diet. Our work aligns with the Pollinator Health Task Force’s goal of restoring and enhancing 7 million acres of pollinator habitat, Federal actions and public-private partnerships. Restoration and enhancement of pollinator forage also supports the goal of reducing overwintering losses of managed honey bees.

In March 2015, the Coalition submitted recommendations to the Task Force regarding actions to increase and improve forage and habitat for honey bees and other pollinators through USDA conservation programs, public-private partnerships, and research. These recommendations emphasize adopting science-based and stakeholder-informed seed specifications and technical guidelines for USDA conservation programs specific to honey bees to encourage planting greater acreages of more nutritious, affordable, varied forage for honey bees. The recommendations also emphasize the value of public-private partnerships, demonstration projects, and information-sharing for promoting, establishing and evaluating honey bee forage. Finally, the recommendations emphasize the need for research and development to inform seed specifications and the development of nutritional supplements for honey bees when forage is lacking. The Coalition looks forward to working with Task Force members to further discuss and advance these recommendations as it implements the Strategy.

The Coalition is encouraging efforts among members and partners to promote agricultural practices that benefit pollinators. For example, the Coalition is working to help drive awareness and support for public-private forage development efforts like the Honey Bee and Monarch Butterfly Partnership, which offers an excellent example of the kind of public-private partnership called for by the Task Force. The Partnership provides a parallel effort that complements the US Department of Agriculture’s conservation program. These parallel efforts afford key opportunities for partners to raise awareness of and engage landowners in pollinator forage programs, provide monitoring support, and share lessons learned across different programs. These results can also help to inform improvements to future public-private programs and USDA conservation programs.

The Coalition is currently working to integrate more stakeholders and experts into its forage and nutrition discussions as it moves forward to advance the development of forage partnerships and projects as well as the development of pre-competitive solutions for improving honey bee nutrition supplements.

** The Coalition is advancing communication, education, and solution building across diverse stakeholders to control crop pests while safeguarding pollinator health. The Coalition’s activities align with President Obama’s call for “identification of existing and new methods and best practices to reduce pollinator exposure to pesticides” and support overall goals related to honey bee and pollinator health.

The Coalition has developed a quick guide for incident reporting and an accompanying article released in Bee Culture Magazine in May 2015; it is being promoted through Coalition member efforts.

The Coalition is bringing together beekeepers, agricultural producers, crop advisors, University extension, industry, and other stakeholders in the discussion and implementation of science-based pest management practices that are appropriate for the given regions, crops, and other contexts.

The Coalition is determining appropriate ways to support the State Managed Pollinator Protection Plans through engagement with leadership organizations and other key stakeholders. These important, state-led processes can affect wide-scale understanding of pollinator-friendly crop pest management practices.

** The Coalition is promoting outreach, education, and communications to raise awareness of honey bee health challenges and opportunities and to encourage collaboration to improve honey bee health. The Coalition’s activities align with and support the Task Force’s work to develop a public education plan as well as to promote public-private partnerships that will support the Task Force’s three overarching goals.

Coalition members are collaborating to deliver outreach materials about honey bee health and the value of honey bees, the multiple factors that impact honey bee health, the need to improve bee health through a diversity of approaches, the need for public-private collaboration across all stakeholders, and the message that beekeepers and farmers are part of ‘One Agriculture’ system supporting global food security. The Coalition is delivering tools ranging from its public-facing website and newsletter, to honey bee health informational signs for a variety of field settings, to information and messaging for use at conferences, workshops and tradeshows. Visit for more resources and information on honey bee health.

Through an innovative Bee Understanding program, Coalition members are also promoting increased stakeholder understanding through supply chain job swaps that help beekeepers and crop producers better understand each other’s operations, decision-making, and mutual concerns related to honey bee health. This effort is just getting started with field-based job swaps occurring this spring. It will continue to engage more stakeholders in on-the-ground learning in the future, while at the same time producing videos and other communications and outreach materials to help stakeholders and the general public gain appreciation for the importance of finding collaborative solutions for honey bee health.

Through these and other efforts, the Coalition looks forward to providing leadership and public-private collaboration in implementing the National Pollinator Health Strategy, supporting and accelerating the Task Force’s goals, and ensuring healthy pollinators, productive agriculture systems, and healthy ecosystems.


About the Honey Bee Health Coalition

The Honey Bee Health Coalition brings together beekeepers, growers, researchers, government agencies, agribusinesses, conservation groups, manufacturers and brands, and other key partners to improve the health of honey bees and other pollinators. Its mission is to collaboratively implement solutions that will help to achieve a healthy population of honey bees while also supporting healthy populations of native and managed pollinators in the context of productive agricultural systems and thriving ecosystems. The Coalition is focusing on accelerating collective impact to improve honey bee health in four key areas: forage and nutrition, hive management, crop pest management, and communications, outreach and education.

Through its unique network of private and public sector members, the Coalition fosters new partnerships, leverages existing efforts and expertise, and incubates and implements new solutions. The Coalition brings its diverse resources to bear in promoting communication, coordination, collaboration, and investment to strategically and substantively improve honey bee health in North America.

(PRWEB) April 24, 2015

The locally owned and operated business Caring Transitions of South Jersey has been recognized by the Caring Transitions’ national headquarters as a Rookie All Star franchise.

Caring Transitions of South Jersey, which Charles Reinhart launched in January of 2014, specializes in organizing and managing senior moves, downsizing, and liquidating belongings through estate sales and online auctions. Caring Transitions of South Jersey serves Cumberland, Salem and Gloucester counties. On a national level, the Caring Transitions franchise is the largest resource specializing in this type of senior relocation services.

“The business has really taken off nicely over the last year and I think people in the community are seeing the value of the service my team and I can offer,” Reinhart said. “I was shocked about being recognized with this type of award, but it’s a very nice way to realize how far I’ve come. This gives me the opportunity to set a new goal for myself and the business and to grow with confidence moving forward.”

Caring Transitions Company President Chris Seman said, to be recognized as a Rookie All Star, the franchise had to be open for a full year and have exceeded expectations.

“Caring Transitions of South Jersey demonstrates an understanding of the system and how to execute it and has created a solid foundation that is leading the businesses on an accelerated growth pattern,” he said.

Reinhart knows what it’s like to deal with a challenging relocation and estate liquidation. In fact, when he moved into his grandmother’s house after she had passed away, he found himself in a home packed to the gills with memories.

“When my grandmother passed away, my sister and parents took what they wanted from her house, but when I moved in the house was still 100 percent full. When I saw what Caring Transitions did, it really hit home for me,” Reinhart said. “Whether you’re clearing out a home of someone who has passed or helping a family member move into an apartment or assisted living community, it’s a very difficult time. When someone has lived in a house for long time, there’s a lot of life to go through. It’s hard to go through that alone. Caring Transitions is here to help.”

Reinhart, who has been married for five years and has a young daughter, has been a volunteer firefighter for 13 years and has lived in Greenwich all his life. Before opening Caring Transitions, Reinhart, who has a bachelor’s degree in environmental management, worked in horticultural sales, as a local municipal code enforcement inspector, and as a county health inspector. Since opening his own business, Reinhart has found that Caring Transitions is more than a franchise network.

“Caring Transitions is really a family and it’s wonderful to have the support of the corporate team and the other owners around the country. No matter what kind of challenge you’re facing, you can always find someone in the Caring Transitions network who can give you the guidance you need,” Reinhart said.

Caring Transitions is a trusted and highly respected national company leading the way in senior relocation, household liquidations and estate sale management in more than 150 locations across the United States. Caring Transitions is part of the International Franchise Association, the Small Business Association’s Franchise Registry, VetFran and Minority Fran.

Newark, NJ (PRWEB) December 16, 2014

Gordon Thomas, an inventive problem-solver whose creations – from medical devices, to weapons sensors, to optical communications fiber – are remarkable for their diversity as well as their ingenuity and practicality, has been named a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors.

Thomas, a professor of physics, joins just over 400 inventors from more than 150 research universities, government agencies and non-profit research institutions who, in the words of the Academy, “have demonstrated a prolific spirit of innovation in creating or facilitating outstanding inventions that have made a tangible impact on quality of life, economic development, and the welfare of society.”

His growing portfolio of inventions includes 23 issued and pending patents.

“I’m delighted by this honor mostly for the light it shines on the tremendous work that goes on at NJIT in developing intellectual property,” notes Thomas. “As an institution, we stand out not only for the work our professors do in this arena, but for the determined way we engage our graduate and undergraduate students in project-focused science and engineering that leads to important innovations, both big and small.”

His describes the hunt for ideas as simple and straightforward: “I speak to people with a problem and determine what’s needed.” He recently earned one of his two Thomas Edison Patent Awards for developing such a problem-solving device, an implantable, wireless ‘Smart Shunt’ to monitor and regulate the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in people with hydrocephalus, or fluid build-up in the brain.

“When someone I knew presented this problem to me a few years ago – a grandfather concerned about his infant granddaughter – the standard method in use at the time had been developed in the 1950s. It essentially involved drilling a hole in the skull and installing a tube,” he recounts. His device, backed by a $ 3 million grant from the National Institutes of Health and developed in a partnership with the Harvard Medical School and Vivonics, Inc., will soon be tested in animal trials in Cambridge, Mass.

In collaboration with Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, he invented a patent-pending device known as a tonometer to detect and monitor people with glaucoma, a leading cause of blindness.

Thomas, a physicist by training, discovered a relish for technical challenges early in his career while he was engaged in basic research at Bell Labs. He earned his first patent there after a manager presented him with a frustrating problem: how to prevent moisture from seeping into optical fibers and hindering the transmission of data and phone signals.

“The torch used in softening the fiber was causing hydrogen and oxygen to combine and form water. We needed to come up with a dry process, and we succeeded by changing one critical step, using an oxygen plasma torch that keeps hydrogen out,” he recounts of his solution – a fabrication method for ultra-pure fiber – that is now routinely used in optical communications.

“I really liked working on that project and it made a big impression on me,” he says. “It was incredibly fun and I believed my accomplishment to be more useful than what I was doing in basic research, while I continue to find pure research both interesting and important.”

He hastens to add that he “would never have come up with any of these ideas by myself.”

“Inventors almost never work alone,” notes Thomas, who said he collaborates with a core “triumvirate” of Reginald Farrow, a research professor of physics and also a distinguished inventor, and Alokik Kanwal, a research assistant professor. The three routinely vet, critique and improve one another’s ideas until they begin to resemble something workable. “Alokik and Reggie are experts in nanofabrication, which is the frontier of device fabrication.”

Their creative team typically includes an array of talented graduate and undergraduates students.

“I require all of my physics students to do demonstrations of their work in class and always ask them to think about inventions that could arise from it. Outside of class, we run a biophysics research program each semester and over the summer that prompts motivated students to become innovators and researchers. Often, they’re working closely with me on my projects,” he says, adding, “And we have fun. That’s essential.”

He relishes his students’ triumphs, some of them prominent. Early in his career, he served as the thesis advisor for a Ph.D. student devising a process for stilling the movement of electrons in metals used as insulators. This past summer, he looked on proudly as his advisee, Thomas Rosenbaum, was installed as the ninth president of the California Institute of Technology. Next March, Thomas will be back at Caltech, which is hosting the induction ceremony for the 2014 Fellows.

Among Thomas’s other notable inventions are a produce-recognition system for NCR’s grocery check-out counters, a flexible sensor circuit to help prevent explosions that won him a second Edison award, and a related, patent-pending device for an ultra-sensitive sensor to measure and record vibrations which the military can use for situational awareness of perimeter security. The Army Research and Development Engineering Center at Picatinny Arsenal, Dover, oversees this effort and provides support.

The author of 150 peer-reviewed articles on basic physics, Thomas is also a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
