Dr. Jennifer Harrington Launches New Website for Minneapolis CoolSculpting Patients

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) April 12, 2013 -- Dr. Jennifer Harrington, a premier plastic surgeon in Minneapolis, has launched a new website dedicated to educating patients on the CoolSculpting, non-surgical fat removal procedure. Dr. Harrington hopes that the new website will educate patients on this revolutionary body contouring treatment, and encourage them to seek treatment at her state-of-the-art practice in Minneapolis.

Dr. Harrington’s new website, located at http://www.coolandsculpt.com, is a comprehensive resource on non-surgical fat removal and body sculpting. Patients who are interested in pursuing cosmetic enhancement but are apprehensive about undergoing surgery, such as tummy tuck or liposuction, can learn about the risks and benefits of CoolSculpting, as well as the remarkable results the procedure affords. The website also features a robust before and after photo gallery of patients who have been treated by Dr. Harrington.

In addition to learning about the procedure, prospective Minneapolis CoolSculpting patients can get to know board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Harrington. Information about her education, training, experience and recognitions, including being named a “Top Doc” by Minneapolis / St. Paul Magazine is available on the website. Dr. Harrington and her staff trust that providing patients with information about her credentials will help them feel comfortable about pursuing treatment at her practice.

Finally, patients can use the new website to get information on travelling to Minneapolis for surgery, and financing plastic surgery. Helping patients get all of the information they need ahead of their surgical consultation allows for a convenient and comfortable treatment process.

T-Shirts & Apparel : neurodiversity v2.0 kids' tee

You know how sometimes you overhear a conversation between your friends or coworkers, and you keep hearing your name bubble up? Not in a bad way. Just that they're talking about something you're working on, and you think, "Hey. That's my thing they're talking about. I know a lot about it. Maybe I should be involved in that conversation?" Sometimes being an autistic person is like that, but it shouldn't be. If you agree, be sure to check out ASAN's new signable pledge to involve Autistic voices in conversations about autism.

"NEURODIVERSITY" in sulfur yellow ink written underneath an image of a brain with a golden spiral superimposed on it in brown and tan on a black, 50% cotton / 50% polyester t-shirt.

In April of 2013, 100% of the proceeds from this shirt are being donated to ASAN, The Autistic Self Advocacy Network, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run by and for Autistic people. Their mission statement:

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network seeks to advance the principles of the disability rights movement with regard to autism. Drawing on the principles of the cross-disability community, ASAN seeks to organize the community of Autistic adults and youth to have our voices heard in the national conversation about us. ASAN believes that the goal of autism advocacy should be a world in which Autistic people enjoy the same access, rights, and opportunities as all other citizens. We hope to empower Autistic people across the world to take control of our own lives and the future of our common community. Nothing About Us, Without Us!

DOJ balks at MF Global advisers' fees

* U.S. Trustee objects to $1.85 million of $14 million in fees sought

* Professional fees are major priority for bankruptcy regulator

By Nick Brown

NEW YORK, April 11 (Reuters) - The Department of Justice is objecting to about $1.85 million in professional fees in MF Global's wind-down, including more than $500,000 for the primary law firm that represents bankruptcy trustee Louis Freeh.

The U.S. Trustee Program, the DOJ's bankruptcy watchdog, lodged court papers on Thursday criticizing compensation applications from a slew of professionals for entries like vague time records, travel expenses and meal charges.

In total, eight firms sought about $14 million in interim fees for work done between Oct. 1 and Jan. 31. That includes about $4 million from Morrison & Foerster, the law firm representing Louis Freeh, the former FBI chief and trustee in charge of winding down MF Global's estate.

The DOJ objected to about $503,000 of the firm's fees and expenses, complaining of messy time records and high charges for trainees not yet admitted to practice law. Morrison & Foerster partner Brett Miller had no immediate comment.

The U.S. Trustee commonly objects to professional fees because the more money advisers make, the less is available to repay creditors. The issue has been even hotter lately, with the U.S. Trustee planning to launch new guidelines that increase disclosure requirements for compensation requests.

Money matters are especially sensitive in MF Global because the case became a political firestorm after regulators discovered that the commodities broker had misappropriated money in the accounts of trader customers, leading to a shortfall in customer accounts. Customers are expected to eventually recover all of their money.

Run by former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, MF Global is liquidating after filing for bankruptcy in 2011 when investors were spooked by its exposure to European sovereign debt. Its creditor payback plan was approved last week in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan.

Other firms advising Freeh as well as MF Global creditors, including Pepper Hamilton LLP and Proskauer Rose LLP, also drew objections from the U.S. Trustee on Thursday to fee applications.

The Trustee's largest gripe was with Capstone Advisory Group, financial adviser to MF Global's creditors' committee. The Trustee took issue with about $541,000 of Capstone's roughly $2 million application, citing vague time records and too many attendees present at routine meetings.

A spokeswoman of Capstone could not immediately be reached. The firm earlier this year was in hot water with the U.S. Trustee in a different case -- the bankruptcy of investment management firm GSC Group Inc -- where it settled allegations of covering up potential conflicts of interest with one of its contractors.

The case is In re MF Global Holdings Ltd, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York, No. 11-15059

If gold is over, why are central banks hoarding it like crazy? - Wealth Managers

You are here: Home Business MarketsIf gold is over, why are central banks hoarding it like crazy? - Wealth Managers If gold is over, why are central banks hoarding it like crazy? - Wealth Managers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) April 12, 2013 -- The big banks are breathlessly proclaiming that now is the time to sell your gold. They are warning that we have now entered a "bear market" for gold and that the price of gold will continue to decline for the rest of the year. So should we believe them?

Well, their warnings might be more credible if the central banks of the world were not hoarding gold like crazy. During 2012, central bank gold buying was at the highest level that we have seen in almost 50 years. Meanwhile, insider buying of gold stocks has now reached multi-year highs and the U.S. Mint cannot even keep up with the insatiable demand for silver eagle coins. So what in the world is actually going on here? Right now, the central banks of the world are indulging in a money printing binge that reminds many of what happened during the early days of the Weimar Republic. When you flood the financial system with paper money, that is eventually going to cause the prices for hard assets to go up dramatically. Could it be possible that the banksters are trying to drive down the price of both gold and silver so that they can gobble it up cheaply? Do they want to be the ones sitting on all of the "real money" once the paper money bubble that we are living in finally bursts?

Gold Bullion decline is "a contrarian's dream scenario to us," Tocqueville exec says - Wealth Managers

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) April 12, 2013 -- The bottoming process in gold and gold mining shares continues to be an extended and frustrating affair. Nevertheless, the fundamental rationale for positioning physical bullion and gold mining shares seems more compelling than ever. ...

The accelerated decline in the first quarter of 2013, in our opinion, suggests a capitulative phase in which investors are giving up on the notion of exposure to gold, and especially gold mining shares. The mining shares, which were already historically cheap at the beginning of the quarter, became even cheaper. Intense liquidation of GLD and other gold ETFs during the quarter also seemed characteristic of a broad capitulation.

Gold, a favorite investment theme two years ago, has become toxic to many. To recap the factors we believe led to the decline: gold became overbought during the threatened government shutdown in August of 2011. As one of our favorite technicians stated, when the price of anything attempts to go parabolic, it must suffer from a hangover. ...

I believe that the precious metals sector has arrived at a significant bottom and that the next leg in the gold bull market is ready to commence. ...

The fundamental case for owning gold has improved since year end 2011. Real interest rates remain negative, worldwide quantitative easing has proliferated, and the events in Cyprus demonstrate that uninsured deposits in the commercial banking system are at risk in any resolution scenario. ...

The evidence shows strong macro fundamentals for gold, investor sentiment at a negative extreme and compelling valuations in the mining shares. It seems like a contrarian's dream scenario to us.

Home & Office : Star Wars Deluxe Silicone Mold

We love the Star Wars Ice Trays. We mostly use ours for ice or chocolate and occasionally for grown-up Jell-O treats. So when we saw these, we thought, "OMG! BIGGER IS BETTER, RIGHT?" Of course, bigger is better! We're not sure what type of drinking vessel would fit ice of this magnitude, but perhaps you can make a Han Solo in Carbonite Igloo?

The Star Wars Deluxe Ice Trays come in three shapes: Han Solo in Carbonite, R2-D2, and Millennium Falcon. Make giant ice sculptures or use your imagination to create giant chocolates, gelatin molds, or maybe even brownie-flavored carbonite. Yum! These trays are safe for the freezer or oven, so the possibilities are limitless!

ByLily Crocheted Weeping Angels: Do they blink?! ThinkGeek Knit & CrochetOh no, Timmy! LOOK OUT BEHIND YOU!

On February 21st, we held our first Knit & Crochet Night of 2013; 25 randomly selected crafters were brave enough to face rush hour traffic and make the trip out to our HQ to enjoy a night of fun and festivities. All in all, it was a great success!

We started the night off right by giving the grand ol' tour of our office; as everyone settled in, we began to put together our TOP SECRET PROJECT: a Companion Cube baby blanket! We couldn't be happier with the end result - it looks fantastic! Every attendee did their part to make this project a reality, and we want to thank each and every one of you. The blanket will be donated to Project Linus, an organization that provides knitted and crocheted blankets to children in need.

Companion Cube baby blanketChell Timmy's newfound companion!

Afterwards, like a magical food fairy, the pizza finally arrived! Whilst we nommed, our more experienced crafters gave short talks on various knit and crochet topics. Our copy writer monkey, E, spoke about the Mother Bear Project, a charity that provides hand-knitted or crocheted bears to children affected by HIV/AIDS in emerging nations. (We may be trying to organize our own project for Mother Bear soon, so keep an eye out!) E was followed by Emily, who spoke about continental knitting, and Allyson, who gave an introduction to amigurumi.

The rest of the night was spent chit-chatting away, trading craft secrets, and sharing our wares. We had quite the talented group among us - there were knitted lightsaber toys, stuffed Daleks, and all sorts of geeky scarves and hats. (If you want to see them all, check out our Flickr slideshow below!) We topped off the event with a raffle and freebies for EVERYONE! YAY!

ThinkGeek Knit & Crochet Night waresJust a few of the geeky wares everyone brought!

Thanks again to all our attendees for coming out and contributing to the special project; we couldn't have done it without you! Since this went so well, we are considering expanding our Knit & Crochet event to allow all our friends from afar to participate. Be on the lookout!

Gadgets : Thor Ice Scraper

Mjolnir, the famous hammer of Thor, is said to have been forged in the heart of a dying star. It can hew foes down like a scythe through wheat. In the right hands, Thor's Hammer is an instrument of justice and massive destruction. But Thor Odinson is not known for his subtlety. If you needed a surgically apply force in a delicate theater, a hammer is probably not the implement you would reach for.

So when Jim Johnstone approached Quirky with an idea of using a warhammer to clean ice off of glass, you can imagine pretty clearly that Quirky would be skeptical. And yet, open-mindedly, they soldiered on and codeveloped the Thor Ice Scraper. Though not made of Uru, and you don't have to be 'worthy,' per se, to wield it,

This ice-scraper is intelligently designed to both increase the comfort and the scraping ability of your standard ice-scrapers by adding an angled blade 90 degrees from the forward blade, so now you can scrape ice with each push and draw. Plus, the scraper's top-handle is rubberized so you can bear down with your opposite hand for increased leverage. Finally, the telescoping hand means you can reach all the way across an expansive hunk of glass and yet still collapse it enough to fit under your seat, comfortably.

Please note that the Thor Ice Scraper will not give its wielder the power of flight, nor the ability to call down lightning. It is not recommended as a crime-fighting implement. Stay frosty, people.

Features and Specs Double-blade design so you can scrape with both forward and backward motionsFront handle lets you scrape with less strain and more forceExtendable, telescoping arm for better reachFits comfortably under your car seatFront plow keeps the snow off your hands and glovesRubber-coated front and rear handles for solid gripMaterials: Plastic head, stainless steel handle, rubber gripsDimensions: Extends from 25" to 36"

Geek Toys : Army Men Candles

 Army Men Candles

When we were small, we were told not to play with matches. Somehow, though, many of our toys happened to catch on fire and burn. (Ok, so the old one sometimes burned, but there was always one mint-in-package in a climate controlled environment for later.) The usual human torches were normally the generic plastic army men. Well, guess what? It's time to set some on fire again. Not your toys, silly, these Army Men Candles.

Army Men Candles are exactly what you'd think they'd be based on their name. They're the same color as the toys of yore, about the same size, and are fully sculpted in 3D. That last bit just means that Army Men Candles are not flat or only sculpted on one side. Oh no. It's like setting your old toys on fire, except more waxy. Soldier up any cake, militarize any birthday, or stunt-toy-a-lize any indy film shoot. Army Men Candles - wish on 'em if you got 'em, soldier!

Army Men Candles

Just like the soldiers you played with as a kid, except this time they're supposed to be set on fire.Perfect for candle toppers or stunt men for indy films.Same color as the classic Army Men.Full 3D sculpt.5 candles per set (1 of each style): Radio Man, Binocular Dude, Bazooka Guy, Flamethrower Chap, and Grenade Gent.Dimensions: approx. 2.25-1.8" tall (depending on the dude).

Please update your browser to the most upated version. Update Now Home  >  Classic  >  1964 Porsche 901 Prototype Classic Drive 1964 Porsche 901 Prototype Front End In Motion 3 Our number seven (#13 327) went into suspension testing service in February 1964 with the nickname Barbarossa ("red beard" in Italian -- the nickname of Frederick I, duke of Swabia, later king of Germany and Holy Roman Emperor). It also spent time in the wind tunnel at an automotive research institute in Untertuerkheim. Frequently updated with production-intent parts, Barbarossa helped sort many suspension, braking, aerodynamic, and heating/ventilation problems uncovered during those early test runs. After completing almost 44,000 kilometers, Barbarossa was still in presentable shape, so the somewhat cash-pressed company sold the prototype to a "friend of the family," Porsche race driver and automotive journalist Richard von Frankenberg. Perhaps best known for surviving a horrific somersaulting crash at Avus in Berlin while racing a 550A, he ultimately perished in a road accident in 1973, after which Barbarossa's ownership history gets murky until it surfaced in December 1984 as a derelict hulk for sale to settle a mechanic's lien in New York City. Don Meluzio got his first taste of Porsche's rear-engine magic during his Army service in Germany by riding shotgun in his 1st Sergeant's 911 to watch the races at Hockenheim and the Nuerburgring (his lieutenant drove a 356C). After returning stateside, he started autocrossing a 911 in 1980 and graduated to road racing in '85. He eventually found his way into a 924 D-production ex-works car. It was these deep roots in the Porsche collector and racing communities that helped him identify the battered rusting hulk with the strange forward-sliding vent sunroof, the crashed front corner and the mechanic's lien as the oldest known surviving prototype of the venerable 911. Obtaining proof from the factory wasn't easy. Meluzio mounted an expedition to Zuffenhausen in 1985 to consult with a cadre of engineers armed with photos of all the design peculiarities of his "garage find," things like the torsion-bar struts that support the luggage-compartment lid, the coil-springs that hold the engine lid open, the circular (instead of oval) fuel-filler door, missing trim strips below the doors, the 356 steering wheel attached to a column with an ignition switch mounted to it, and the two large gauge clusters instead of five. Barbarossa's fuel filler lid is indeed circular, not oval. The ignition/steering lock is on the steering column. Then there's the wacky hand-cranked sunroof that retracts only partway forward, but incorporates drain tubes positioned within the structure -- hardly a hot-rod shop job. Oh, and of course there's the serial plate with five digits --13 327. After a call to a retiree from Porsche's body shop who recalled the peculiar sunroof, the car's provenance was confirmed. As Don and expert Porsche restorer Denny Frick set about their extensive research into how to return the vehicle to its original factory-prototype condition, they gradually discovered that very few 911 parts interchange with this handbuilt 901. Dimensionally it's 2 inches shorter and a half-inch narrower than a '64 911.

1964 Porsche 901 Prototype Classic Drive

Please update your browser to the most upated version. Update Now Home  >  Classic  >  1964 Porsche 901 Prototype Classic Drive 1964 Porsche 901 Prototype Front End In Motion 3 Our number seven (#13 327) went into suspension testing service in February 1964 with the nickname Barbarossa ("red beard" in Italian -- the nickname of Frederick I, duke of Swabia, later king of Germany and Holy Roman Emperor). It also spent time in the wind tunnel at an automotive research institute in Untertuerkheim. Frequently updated with production-intent parts, Barbarossa helped sort many suspension, braking, aerodynamic, and heating/ventilation problems uncovered during those early test runs. After completing almost 44,000 kilometers, Barbarossa was still in presentable shape, so the somewhat cash-pressed company sold the prototype to a "friend of the family," Porsche race driver and automotive journalist Richard von Frankenberg. Perhaps best known for surviving a horrific somersaulting crash at Avus in Berlin while racing a 550A, he ultimately perished in a road accident in 1973, after which Barbarossa's ownership history gets murky until it surfaced in December 1984 as a derelict hulk for sale to settle a mechanic's lien in New York City. Don Meluzio got his first taste of Porsche's rear-engine magic during his Army service in Germany by riding shotgun in his 1st Sergeant's 911 to watch the races at Hockenheim and the Nuerburgring (his lieutenant drove a 356C). After returning stateside, he started autocrossing a 911 in 1980 and graduated to road racing in '85. He eventually found his way into a 924 D-production ex-works car. It was these deep roots in the Porsche collector and racing communities that helped him identify the battered rusting hulk with the strange forward-sliding vent sunroof, the crashed front corner and the mechanic's lien as the oldest known surviving prototype of the venerable 911.
