Darien CT Coronavirus Hand Sanitizing Stand

Noble House Media is placing hand-sanitizing stations in public places in the community so residents are able to sanitize their hands with more frequency.

We are not only here when business is good but we are also here to support the community and other businesses in times of need and ensure that local commerce is able to continue.”

— Noble House Media CEO Peter Belbita

DARIEN, CT, USA, March 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Noble House Media is committed to helping the Darien community and local businesses that could be affected by coronavirus concerns in the state.

By partnering with A Royal Flush and the town of Darien, Noble House will place hand-sanitizing stations in public places in the community so residents are able to sanitize their hands with more frequency. The first sanitizing station will be placed in the courtyard between Bankwell and Caffe Nero along Boston Post Road in Darien.

Two officials from the town of Darien — First Selectman Jayme Stevenson and Director of Public Works Edward Gentile — have been instrumental in helping Noble House create this initiative.

Noble House is also using its media platforms to help provide small business owners in the region with as much useful information as possible to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

“We are not only here when business is good but we are also here to support the community and other businesses in times of need and ensure that local commerce is able to continue regardless of the situation,” said Noble House Media CEO Peter Belbita.

A Royal Flush is utilizing its team in Bridgeport to manufacture additional hand-sanitizing stands as quickly as possible to aid in the effort to prevent the spread of the virus that causes COVID-19.

“It’s a priority for us to provide the public with hygienic options that protect the safety of individuals’’ said Tim Butler, president and CEO of A Royal Flush. “We have a vested interest in the communities we serve and we want to take proactive steps to help people instead of just talking about it.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the virus that causes COVID-19 is part of a large family of viruses that are common in humans and many different species of animals. COVID-19 is being spread through person-to-person contact in the U.S. and throughout the world.

Small business owners should follow these basic guidelines from the CDC to prevent employees in their workplace from exposure to COVID-19.

● Instruct sick employees to remain at home: Employees who show any signs or symptoms of a respiratory illness should be told to say home until they are free of symptoms for at least 24 hours.
● Segregate sick employees: If an employee arrives at work and appears to be sick, or becomes sick during working hours, the employee should be separated from other employees and sent home as soon as possible.
● Communicate workplace guidelines clearly: All employees should know that they are not to come to work if sick, and when employees are at work, they should cover their noses and mouths with a tissue if they need to cough or sneeze, wash their hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with hot water and soap after using the restroom, and use a hand sanitizers frequently.
● Have the office cleaned thoroughly: If not being done already, employers should have offices cleaned each night. Workstations, countertops, door knobs, kitchen-area surfaces, cabinet knobs and pulls, remote controls, keyboards and every computer mouse should be cleaned frequently.

Noble House Media has established a hotline 203.689.0806 to provide businesses with free advice or technological help to avoid any business interruptions.

HONEYMOON is a video game for teens about healthy relationships. Shown here are Mom, Dad, and little sister Carol.

HONEYMOON is a game about healthy relationships for teens available at playHONEYMOON.com

2020 Life.Love. Game Design Challenge theme is CULTURE: Can you create a video game about culture's influence on dating … without any violence in the game?

Video games are often unfairly blamed for violence in our society, despite the lack of evidence, but there is little media coverage of their (evidence-based) effectiveness at preventing violence!”

— Drew Crecente, JD

ATLANTA, GA, USA, March 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jennifer Ann’s Group announces the “13th Annual Life.Love. Game Design Challenge” with a first place prize of $10,000.

Since 2008, Jennifer Ann’s Group (JenniferAnn.org), an Atlanta based nonprofit charity, has run an annual video game design challenge to produce and publish prosocial video games through its program, Gaming Against Violence. Past themes for this annual competition include bystander awareness, consent, gaslighting, healthy relationships, and teen dating violence prevention. The contest is open to all over the age of 13 and receives entries from game developers around the world.

The intention of the Life.Love. Game Design Challenge is to publish prosocial video games about sensitive issues impacting adolescents in an effort to educate and empower them . The contest is the longest-running of its kind and has been recognized as a Top 10 Trailblazer program by the National Youth Advisory Board for its unique approach to teen dating violence prevention.

Several of the previously published games have also been honored. In early 2020 their gaslighting game ‘Lamplight Hollow’ was a winner of JungleJam and featured at DreamHack Anaheim. In 2019 the consent game ‘Rispek Danis’ was recognized at the 2019 Games for Change Awards as a nominee for ‘Most Significant Impact.’ Also in 2019 the healthy relationship game HONEYMOON was included in ‘100 Games to Use in the Classroom & Beyond.’ Additionally, six of the video games published through the Gaming Against Violence program are featured in published studies showing their effectiveness at changing unhealthy beliefs and attitudes regarding relationship and gender norms.

The Executive Director of Jennifer Ann’s Group has this to say:

“Video games are often unfairly blamed for violence in our society despite the lack of evidence but there is little media coverage of their (evidence-based) effectiveness at preventing violence! Not only is their use as a violence-prevention tool effective but, importantly, this approach is greatly appreciated by teens. Adolescents would much rather explore a sensitive issue like dating abuse or consent through self-paced exploration than through a classroom discussion in front of their peers. As a result, those who are playing these games are more receptive to the important messages learned in the game.

“These intentionally designed video games are an ideal way for students to learn about this critical information in a format they prefer. Educators appreciate that these games are free, evidence-based, and expert informed. Parents like that these games are an easy and judgment-free approach to engaging their teenagers about healthy dating relationships, consent, and related topics.”

Registration for the contest is open now. The contest will be run in two rounds; the first round consists of submitting a “game pitch” and finalists will be selected from this first round. The finalists will then be given the opportunity to develop a game based on their submitted game narrative. The first place game will win $10,000; second place $2,000; and third place $500.

The first round game pitches are due by March 20, 2020. Rules, prizes, and registration details are available at JAGga.me/culture. A selection of the previous winning games are available via Jennifer Ann’s Group’s video game portal at JAGga.me or on their itch.io page. All games are free and can be played in a web browser or downloaded to smartphones and tablets through the app stores.

Game developers and others looking to learn more about Jennifer Ann’s Group’s efforts to use video games for violence prevention can watch the 2015 GDC Presentation ‘Gaming Against Violence’ by Drew Crecente:

Jim McEnerney Provides Little-Known Strategies To Save Big in the Years Leading Up to Retirement

Jim McEnerney Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, KS, UNITED STATES, March 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you are trying to save money in your day-to-day life, or if you are looking for ways to bolster your retirement income, you’re probably sick of hearing tips like “Brew your own coffee at home instead of going out for pricey lattes” or “Use cash-back apps to earn points and rewards every time you shop,” says Jim McEnerney. As useful as these tips might be for twentysomethings who are just starting out, they are old hat for you — and probably won’t save you significant amounts anyway.

Certified Financial Manager Jim McEnerney has rounded up a couple of tips that may be more appropriate to your age and your financial situation. Take a look, and you could find yourself saving money faster than you can say “OK Boomer!”

Stick to Stock Donations

Making a sizeable charitable donation? Jim McEnerney suggests that if you want to donate several thousand dollars’ worth of assets or so, consider donating stock that you already have in your portfolio rather than writing out a check for the amount. The advantage of that strategy? You will save by not having to pay capital gains tax. That means you can give a larger total amount to the charity of your choice, without your pocketbook having to take a hit.

Jim McEnerney explains that this does depend on your tax bracket, of course, but it’s worth looking into.

Give Yourself a Tax Break

Property taxes can take a bite out of your annual income, Jim McEnerney explains. If you are over the age of 65, however, it’s possible to carve out some serious cash by looking at exemptions. Almost all states offer some type of break on property tax for homeowners in this age group. Among the possibilities are tax rate freezes, caps on assessed value, or rebates. Ask your financial advisor, or do some research online. Naturally, it’s impossible to estimate how much you might save without looking at your particular situation, Jim McEnerney says, but it could be several thousand per year — plenty for a nice vacation, a couple of trips to visit the grandkids, or just to sock away for the future.

Mitigate that Mortgage

Jim McEnerney’s last little-known tip for substantial savings in the lead-up to retirement is to consider shortening your mortgage period. This can be an especially smart strategy if you’ve got extra income to spare now but want to safeguard your financial future.

Take a look at the interest rate you’re paying now on your 30-year mortgage. Then compare that to the rate for a 15-year commitment. Chances are there’s going be a substantial difference, but that the increase in your monthly payment might only amount to a couple of hundred dollars if you make the switch. Tighten your belt a bit now, advises Jim McEnerney, and you could save yourself a bundle in interest down the line.

Fitness Expert Chad Tackett Explains Why You Need Cardio and Strength Training

Chad Tackett Committed 100

HAPPY VALLEY, OR, UNITED STATES, March 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When it comes to improving fitness and losing fat, it’s no secret that a combination of exercise and healthy, mindful eating is the best way to reach your goals. But what kind of exercise should you be doing? Many people advocate for either cardiovascular (cardio) or resistance training (strength training or weightlifting). Chad Tackett, the founder of the renowned online weight loss plan Committed 100, says a balance of both is ideal.

Cardio exercise increases the heart rate and gets your blood pumping. Examples of cardio including brisk walking, jogging, hiking, biking, swimming, dancing, using the Stairmaster or elliptical, kickboxing, etc. In addition to burning calories and fat, cardio can improve your stamina and endurance, reduce blood pressure, and improve your immune system, Chad Tackett says. Many fitness professionals say cardio is the best exercise for weight loss specifically because it burns the highest number of calories in a shorter time span compared to weightlifting.

However, Chad Tackett says, strength training is also essential. Muscle burns more calories than fat, even when the body is at rest, he explains. The objective of strength training is to increase muscle mass and tone. This can include weightlifting with dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells, or machines. It can also include calisthenics (bodyweight resistance exercises) and training with resistance bands.

With more muscle mass comes a higher metabolism, meaning your body is more efficient at burning calories and fat. This is particularly important during periods when you can’t do cardio exercise, whether it’s due to illness or a hectic schedule or vacation. Chad Tackett says adding even just one pound of muscle can help you burn up to 50 more calories per day while at rest. This means adding five pounds of muscle could help you burn 250 more calories per day while at rest, a significant amount considering a caloric deficit of 500 calories per day is typically recommended for those looking to lose one pound of fat per week.

Cardio and strength training have undeniable benefits, Chad Tackett says. Incorporating a bit of both, along with healthy eating, can make you unstoppable.

More on Chad Tackett

In the past 25 years since creating Committed 100, the world’s first online weight loss program, Chad Tackett has helped people in over 100 countries, of various ages, sizes, and backgrounds, achieve their health and fitness goals. He endeavors to help people make healthy and sustainable lifestyle changes to live happier, healthier, and more fulfilling lives without giving up their favorite foods or suffering through boring workouts.

First Professor of Animal Theology in the US

Dr Clair Linzey, first US Professor of Animal Theology

The first professor of Animal Theology in the US has been appointed by the Graduate Theological Foundation, USA.

We feel fortunate to have Dr Linzey as a member of our faculty and look forward to our work together as we explore opportunities to fill an important and emerging niche in theological education.”

— President of the Graduate Theological Foundation (GTF) Dr Kendra Clayton

OXFORD, UK, March 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The first professor of Animal Theology in the US has been appointed by the Graduate Theological Foundation, USA.

The first professor is Dr Clair Linzey, Deputy Director of the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics. The professorship is named after Victorian reformer Frances Power Cobbe (1822-1904) who had a long association with Manchester College, Oxford, (now Harris Manchester College) where her archives are held by the College. Cobbe pioneered the cause of women, workers’ rights, and the protection of animals. “She was a truly inspiring person” commented Clair, “and it is an honour to hold a position in her name”.

President of the Graduate Theological Foundation (GTF) Dr Kendra Clayton, commented, “We at the GTF feel fortunate to have Dr Linzey as a member of our faculty and look forward to our work together as we explore opportunities to fill an important and immerging niche in theological education.”

The GTF is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit ecumenical and interreligious institution providing advanced educational opportunities to practicing ministry professionals, including flexible and convenient online, on-site and distance learning opportunities.

“We are delighted to be associated with GTF’s pioneering work and we are beginning discussions on how the Centre and the GTF can work together in providing courses for teachers and other professionals,” commented Dr Linzey.

Animal theology may be defined as an attempt to view the Christian tradition through an animal-friendly lens, while retaining a critical approach to the tradition with regards to its concern for animals. Animal theology is involved, like feminist theology, in a process of looking again at the Christian tradition to reclaim and rebuild insights and voices concerning our relationship with animals.

Clair has two masters in theology – one from University of St Andrews and the other from Harvard Divinity School. Her doctorate on “Developing Animal Theology: An Engagement with Leonardo Boff” has been accepted by University of St Andrews. In addition, Clair is co-editor of the Journal of Animal Ethics published by the University of Illinois Press, and co-editor of the Palgrave Macmillan Animal Ethics Book Series. She has been director of the Annual Oxford Animal Ethics Summer School for six years.

She is also co-editor of many volumes on animal ethics and theology, including Animal Ethics for Veterinarians (University of Illinois Press, 2017), The Ethical Case Against Animal Experiments (University of Illinois Press, 2018), The Palgrave Macmillan Handbook of Practical Animal Ethics (Palgrave Macmillan, 2018), The Routledge Handbook of Religion and Animal Ethics (Routledge, 2018), and Ethical Vegetarianism and Veganism (Routledge, 2018).

More information about the GTF is here, and for more information about the Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics see here.

Health Scholars CEO Cole Sandau discusses Using Virtual Reality to Transform Clinical Training and Safety of Patients

In an interview with CEOCFO Magazine, Health Scholars CEO Cole Sandau explains how VR technology can help avoid injury or a possible medical error

Virtual reality can scale experience and performance assessment, improving the overall clinical readiness that can help reduce medical errors and save more lives”

— Cole Sandau

DENVER, COLORADO, US, March 10, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent business and investor publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced an interview (https://www.ceocfointerviews.com/healthscholars20.html ) with Cole Sandau, Chief Executive Officer of Health Scholars, a Denver-based company providing Virtual Reality Medical Training and Simulation Management to clinicians and EMS. Health Scholars solutions also optimizes learner competencies using actionable insights from their readiness reports.

With a mission of advancing healthcare training through virtualization, making experience-based training scalable, more accessible and affordable, Mr. Sandau explained in the interview, "Virtual reality can scale experience and performance assessment, improving the overall clinical readiness that can help reduce medical errors and save more lives.”

When asked if the training is done in groups or one-on-one, Mr. Sandau responded, “Organizations may have 100-500 learners that may need to go through a particular topic, but all of our VR-based simulation are individual stand-alone trainings where just one provider is doing the training and the computer plays the role of everybody else who is involved. That really reinforces the value of the business process change because in a traditional physical simulation, all those other roles have to be played by other humans, which magnifies the operational complexity of actually executing it. Having a computer play those roles creates the significant economic advantage.”

On the range of courses that can be studied with virtual reality, Mr. Sandau offers, “We currently offer three VR simulations; Fire in the OR for surgical fire training and Pre- and In-Hospital Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) training for cardiac arrest training. We will be adding 6 additional simulation titles in 2020, Quest headset support, and new multi-player and analytics enhancements for the platform,”

The Health Scholars platform is a cloud-based, VR-ready clinical training platform with VR Simulations, Simulation Management, and Clinical Readiness Reporting solutions for the management, delivery and analysis of blended learning programs. As Mr. Sandau told CEOCFO's Lynn Fosse, "What makes our platform so unique is that it is the first blended learning platform that enables VR distribution and performance analysis, providing organizations an enterprise-scale application to extend physical simulation beyond the simulation center.”

Mr. Sandau further explains, "The platform just streamlines the business process of delivering blended learning so now instead of spending days, sometimes weeks manually organizing training programs educators have the ability to customize, manage and access in-depth analysis of VR, screen-based and physical simulations from a single platform. The platform automates burdensome tasks like scheduling and delivers training simulations at scale, saving organizations both time and money, plus provides the data to prove training efficacy to administrators and executives."

As to what surprised him, “What has been surprising is the ability to look at a technology like VR that a lot of people have thought of as a toy or a game and really understand how it can affect patients’ lives while also creating positive business process changes,” Mr. Sandau told CEOCFO.
