Access Interpreting, Inc., the premier sign-language interpreting and communication access services agency, today announced the launch of its highly anticipated new Video Remote Interpreting service.
With the option of Video Remote Interpreting (VRI), Access Interpretings staff and freelance interpreters are now able to service more clients across the United States, as VRI technology provides access to sign language interpreters when an in-person interpreter is not available.
The Access Interpreting VRI service is made possible with new webcam technology and high-speed internet. Using a webcam, the Deaf or hard of hearing customer and the hearing person they need to communicate with are connected to an interpreter from another location. As the hearing person listens to the interpreter speak through the speakers, the Deaf or hard of hearing customer is able to watch the interpreter on a television or computer screen.
VRI is most effective for medical consultations, emergency situations, and to connect a Deaf or hard of hearing person living in a rural area to an interpreter. This service can also be used to aid students in a classroom, providing Deaf and hard of hearing students with access to classes, programs, and events that they might not otherwise be able to attend.
Our Video Remote Interpreting service has been in development for quite some time now, and we are excited to finally offer this service our existing and future clients, said Brad Leon, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. We believe this service in particular is vital for the Deaf and hard of hearing community, as it can provide access to interpreting services around the clock. When you need us, well be there.
Consumers can make appointments for the VRI service at the time which is most convenient for them, and if needed, the services will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Tampa Bay, FL (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
Recent trends in the beauty industry suggest that men are willing to take slightly more diverse measures than before in order to keep up a good appearance. Statistics show more than 360,000 men received Botox treatments in 2012 (1), evidence of a growing trend among menboth gay and straightusing what has been dubbed Brotox to treat their wrinkles. In addition to the increase, the discrepancy between procedures chosen by straight men versus those chosen by gay men is ever-widening: those within the gay community are opting for more invasive procedures, while straight men prefer noninvasive treatments that require little or no downtime. Skinspirations, a Tampa Bay nonsurgical cosmetic facility, says that the growing number of men interested in cosmetic procedures is accompanied by noticeable differences between men who seek noninvasive versus surgical procedures, and the trend is also influencing an industry shift towards accommodating both straight and gay men.
Reasons for an increase in male interest and demand for such procedures appear to be due to a tough economy and increased competition in the job market (2). However, despite the increased demand for mens cosmetic procedures, there is still stigma attached to seeking such treatments, and the majority of men prefer to keep their procedures under wraps.
But surprisingly, the stigma associated with cosmetic procedures does not extend across all sexualities. While some straight men fear that their colleagues, friends and family may label their desire for noninvasive treatments as feminine behavior, reports have shown that men within the gay community view cosmetic surgery as an acceptable part of their lives. The most common procedures for gay men are liposuction and upper and lower eyelid surgery, while straight men tend to avoid going under the knife and typically opt for nonsurgical procedures (3).
Dr. Cynthia Elliott, owner of Skinspirations, has noticed a jump in the number of men seeking noninvasive procedures at her facility, with her most popular procedure being Botox injectionsa trend which she says echoes previous studies, as many of her clients say the job market is to blame.
Women have recovered nicely following the Great Recession, but men havent fared as well, said Dr. Elliott. The majority of my male patients come to me for quick procedures that have subtle results and require little downtimethey want to look younger while still maintaining their masculinity.
Dr. Elliott predicts that the beauty industry will begin offering services that cater exclusively to men, especially those who wish to keep their procedures under wraps. Because most men value privacy when seeking cosmetic procedures, Dr. Elliott suggests looking for an experienced practitioner who can get the job done quickly, while still obtaining great results.
A majority of men are asking for a quick, safe and effective procedure that will enhance their appearance, but doesnt suggest that any work has been done, Dr. Elliott said. A patients confidentiality should be among the practitioners main concerns.
For men who are simply seeking noninvasive procedures for a quick rejuvenation, Dr. Elliott offers three key tips to consider:
1.Look for a professional with experience with male clientele. Most noninvasive options were designed with women in mind. Find an expert with extensive experience in treating men to avoid feminine-looking results.
2.Dont expect major or permanent changes. Noninvasive procedures typically require several treatments before seeing noticeable results, which often take days to become apparent and last only for a specified length of time.
3.Initiate a skin care routine. Men often forego skin care, but establishing a routine based on individual skin type can go a long way in improving skin quality.
Dr. Elliott is a former emergency and trauma doctor with the experience and expertise to perform a wide array of nonsurgical procedures in her Tampa Bay cosmetic facility. With a practice devoted exclusively to cosmetic and laser procedures, Dr. Elliott is often sought out to perform Botox injections.

Smartpress.com recently announced its move to a new, larger location to accommodate increased customer demand. The move made possible the purchase of additional specialty presses and allows for greater printing capacity to meet growing customer needs. Smartpress.com is a leading provider in online printing, offering a range of printing services that includes business card printing, wedding invitation printing and other custom printing applications.
Since launching in 2009, Smartpress.com has experienced tremendous growth, driving the need for a larger facility and greater digital printing capacity. The new 30,000 square foot building offered the company plenty of new space to add two new presses and increase printing capacity to satisfy increased customer demand. Additionally, there is space in the building to accommodate Smartpress.coms projected growth for the next several years.
Smartpress.coms move was only a five-mile journey from Chaska to Chanhassen, Minn., but it took more than a month to transfer the company to the new facility with minimal impact on customers. The move was also compounded by the fact that it took place in the middle of the busy holiday season. Throughout, the process was carefully calculated and controlled to allow print production and customer service to remain intact, from start to finish.
During the move, Smartpress.com also added two new presses. First, the company received the Xerox iGen 150 Digital Press, which delivers print at a faster pace and with a higher resolution, while offering the same versatility and high-quality Smartpress.com customers have come to expect. Then the HP Indigo 10000 Digital Press arrived, which provides new print capabilities due to its 29-inch format and offers the potential for more competitive pricing on longer run digital printing projects.
Over the past year, weve worked really hard to give customers what they want. Weve increased our print offerings, added colored paper stocks and a silver foil stock, and introduced new white ink digital printing. All of that was introduced before we moved, before we purchased these two new presses, said Chuck Reese, President at Smartpress.com. Even with all weve done previously, I feel like were just at the start of being able to show customers what were really capable of. The new facility and the new presses are just a launching point for how we expect our business to evolve in the near future.
With the new presses installed in the new space, Smartpress.com is working behind the scenes to produce a range of new printing applications, including brochures, posters and pocket folders leveraging the 10000s 29-inch digital format. The company will also continue developing a niche market for booklets. These enhanced capabilities will assist the online printing company with nurturing new business from print buyers, graphic designers, photographers, freelancers and small and medium-size businesses.

NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
LearnBop today announced the appointment of Jim Behnke as a strategic advisor as the companys Common Core middle school mathematics program continues to build momentum in schools around the country.
According to LearnBop CEO and Founder, Bharanidharan Rajakumar, This is critical time in our development as we navigate an array of opportunities for strategic partnerships and scale up our technology to support the many schools transitioning from pilots to day-to-day use. Jim brings tremendous experience and expertise to LearnBop as we move into our next phase as a company.
Behnke was Executive Vice President/Chief Learning Officer at Pearson from 2006 through 2012, where he was instrumental in directing product strategy and product development for programs such as the MyLabs/Mastering, was used by more than 12 million post-secondary students in 2013. At Pearson, he was also oversaw all customer-facing learning technologies for US K12 and international higher education. Before Pearson acquired his start-up, Peregrine Publishers, in 1998, Behnke had already established a distinguished track record as a product innovator and academic publisher in the STEM fields.
There is widespread agreement that adaptive learning technologies will play a central role in education over the next decade and there are many different approaches to addressing this opportunity, Behnke said. What impresses me most about LearnBops approach is the virtuous cycle between content development and the capabilities of its platform, which simulates a Socratic dialog between an individual student and a personal tutor.
About LearnBop (http://www.LearnBop.com)
LearnBop is an award-winning adaptive learning company that originated out of Carnegie Mellon University and is now based in New York City.

Its easy-to-use authoring system enables educators to create adaptive learning experiences for students in any STEM-related subject at the K12 or higher ed level.
