PACE Fitness Adds Nutrition Program to Offer Health Clubs and Members a Total Wellness Package in Time for New Years

PACE Fitness Adds Nutrition Program to Offer Health Clubs and Members a Total Wellness Package in Time for New Years










Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2010

PACE Fitness has been marketing its hydraulic circuit training equipment to women’s fitness centers and coed health clubs for over 20 years. PACE has now joined with the Medical/Weight Management Industry’s leader in the development of weight management products to offer an extensive line of meal replacements and protein supplements which have been scientifically designed to meet the nutritional needs of the Low Calorie dieter just in time for New Year’s Resolution memberships.

PACE President Rande LaDue states, “We have always suggested our health club customers offer some type of nutrition program to their members, but up until this point, we have never offered anything. We are happy to introduce our comprehensive program to help facilitate faster results for members and increased profits for the clubs. Exercise alone is only half of the wellness equation; now our health customers can offer a complete package.”

“January is typically the busiest month of the year for health clubs; however, it is even busier for weight loss centers because of the intimidation factor. Overweight people typically are too intimidated to join conventional health clubs. Our non-intimidating hydraulic equipment has helped many clubs overcome this hurdle; however, without a nutrition program, clubs are not offering what these people want and need as well as missing out on a great deal of profit.”

“Simplicity has always been a key factor to the success of our hydraulic circuit program. The same holds true with our new nutrition program. Our turn-key start up package for clubs includes staff training, marketing and program manuals as well as a start up supply of products for immediate sales.”

PACE Nutrition products will be available direct to the consumer through its website pacefitnessandnutrition.com for those areas without a PACE club nearby.

CDI College Adds Second Practical Nursing Open House in Winnipeg












Winnipeg, MB (PRWEB) June 28, 2011

CDI College is giving potential students another opportunity to learn about the new Practical Nursing program at the Winnipeg campus. Due to an overwhelming response to the Practical Nursing Open House on July 6, 2011, the college has scheduled a second session for Thursday, July 7, 2011.

The open house events will provide students with information about the two-year Practical Nursing diploma program, admission prerequisites and general information about the college. The program features a comprehensive curriculum that includes foundations in anatomy, physiology and holistic nursing, as well as courses in nursing theory, mental health, pediatric nursing and acute care. As part of the program, students are required to complete several clinical practice placements in which they apply their knowledge and skills in a range of healthcare settings.

“We are very excited to welcome Practical Nursing students to our Winnipeg campus,” says Dr. Bohdan Bilan, VP of Academics for CDI College. “As the healthcare industry in Canada continues to demand knowledgeable and qualified professionals to care for the country’s aging population, Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) will enjoy a challenging and rewarding career.”

Successful graduates will be prepared to write the Canadian Practical Nurse Registration Exam (CPNRE) and, upon passing, register with the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Manitoba (CLPNM) in order to practice as licensed practical nurses. LPNs are able to work in various nursing areas including hospitals, medical clinics, long-term care homes, schools and community care centers.

Both events will run from 6:30-8:30pm at the CDI College campus at 280 Main Street. Attendees are asked to check in at 6:00pm sharp.

The Utility Company? Adds Franchise in its Home Base of Ottawa – Former Employee Mike Knol Becomes Utility Service Provider

The Utility Company™ Adds Franchise in its Home Base of Ottawa – Former Employee Mike Knol Becomes Utility Service Provider










Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) March 7, 2007

The Utility Company, the leading provider of information technology as a utility to small and medium-sized businesses (SMB), today announced its latest Utility Service Provider (USP) franchise in the Ottawa West region of Ontario. Mike Knol, a former Utility franchise development representative, purchased the rights to the Ottawa West franchise based out of Kanata.

The Utility Company was founded to address the two major problems plaguing businesses today:


    Over-spending – the fact the average SMB spends $ 360 per user per month on technology for an industry total of $ 400 billion annually.

    Under-utilization – the fact that only 15% of this investment in technology is actually utilized by these businesses.

Small and medium-sized businesses tend to look at their information technology (IT) spending as simply a “cost of doing business” or a distraction to their main area of focus and expertise. To help businesses better understand IT, The Utility Company recently launched a free business-technology online assessment service called the Utility Meter Reading. This provides businesses a 360o view on spending and utilization in the five major areas of technology: network/desktop, business applications, Web/Internet, copier/printer and telecommunications.

“I enjoyed working at The Utility Company – and believed in the business so strongly, that I decided to open my own franchise,” said Mike Knol. “Coming from an entrepreneurial family – living and breathing the life of a small business owner for as long as I can remember – I saw this as my opportunity to become an owner-operator and address a growing need for businesses from 5 to 100 employees. I am excited about being able to demonstrate the value that IT can really bring to the small business owner when approached in a new way.”

“Mike has the benefit of having worked for us supporting our franchisees across North America so he understands the value of the Utility model and we are obviously delighted with his decision. His entrepreneurial background and technical expertise gives him the ability to truly understand the needs of the small business owner,” stated Mark Scott, President of The Utility Company. “Our goal with Utility Ottawa West is to provide a consumption-based alternative for computer power-users in the high-technology community, such as start-ups, professional services firms and financial services. In addition, with Ottawa West and the Valley being the fastest growing area in the region, education, non-profit and health care are also key vertical markets we will focus on helping.”

“Utility’s offering is a perfect fit for any business that relies on technology and corporate data,” stated Randy Woods, co-founder of non-linear creations – a Canadian web development company with headquarters in Ottawa. “We recently completed the Utility Meter Reading and started engaging The Utility Company. It’s hard to believe we spend more on technology per employee then we do on rent and occupancy costs. The Utility model addresses this while helping us to better utilize the technology we have.”

The Utility Company Ottawa West launches today at the OCRI Technology Showcase at Scotiabank Place in Kanata, booth #416. Our Connected Office program provides technology service and support for business starting from $ 1 per end user per day. For further information contact Mike Knol directly at 613-963-0044.

About The Utility Company™

The Utility Company is the leading provider of information technology as a utility to small and medium-sized businesses, delivering the required hardware, software and service for a monthly fee per user. Our Connected Office™ service suite empowers people to properly leverage technology to operate, communicate and manage their business more effectively to increase productivity, performance and ultimately profit. Our customers are supported by the Utility Service Network delivering on-site service and business-technology consulting across North America – technology sales, professionals and service organizations can review the Beyond Managed Services™ franchise opportunity on our website.

Third Brigade, Provider of Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), Adds Security and Healthcare Experts to Advisory Board

Third Brigade, Provider of Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), Adds Security and Healthcare Experts to Advisory Board










Ottawa, Ontario; Reston, Virginia (PRWEB) July 6, 2006

Third Brigade, Inc. (http://www.thirdbrigade.com), a provider of intrusion prevention systems (IPS), today announced the addition of Ira Winkler and Dr. Robert Mandel to its Advisory Board.

Ira Winkler, CISSP, is President of the Internet Security Advisors Group. Mr. Winkler is recognized as one of the world’s experts in Internet security, information warfare, information-related crime investigation, and industrial espionage, and has been named a “Modern Day James Bond” by the media. He is a specialist in penetration testing, where he infiltrates companies, both technically and physically, to find and repair an organization’s weaknesses. He began his career at the National Security Agency (NSA), where he served as an Intelligence and Computer Systems Analyst. He moved on to support other US and overseas government military and intelligence agencies. After leaving government service, he served as President of the Internet Security Advisors Group and Director of Technology of the National Computer Security Association, and Chief Security Strategist for Hewlett-Packard Consulting. He has authored Corporate Espionage, which has been described as the bible of the Information Security field, and the bestselling Through the Eyes of the Enemy.

“Hackers increasingly exploit vulnerabilities in commercial and custom software applications to gain access to critical systems and data,” said Ira Winkler, President of the Internet Security Advisors Group. “Host-based intrusion prevention systems that use proven, practical approaches are central to a defense-in-depth strategy, and help protect organizations from malicious attacks. I look forward to working closely with Third Brigade as they help businesses and governments address the growing security threats.”

Dr. Robert Mandel, MD, MBA and Vice President of Healthcare Services, recently returned to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts (BCBSMA) from the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative (MAeHC), where he served as COO for a year. Prior to this, he was Vice President of eHealth at BCBSMA managing the eHealth Program with a significant focus on the eRx Collaborative and piloting medical decision support applications and other technologies that offer the potential of improving the quality and efficiency of care delivery. In addition, Dr. Mandel spent three years as Vice President of Provider Enrollment and Services where he led many of the organization’s administration simplification initiatives.

”With the growing reliance on EHR/EMR and other eHealth systems, it is critical that every effort be made to better ensure the integrity, confidentiality and accessibility of these applications and data” said Dr. Robert Mandel, Vice President of Healthcare Services, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts. “Host-based intrusion prevention systems can help providers and payors alike stop attacks that could otherwise reduce quality of care, disrupt services, expose confidential data and increase operating costs.”

“We’re pleased that Ira and Robert have joined our extended team,” noted Brian O’Higgins, CTO of Third Brigade. “Their addition comes at a time when enterprises, particularly those in healthcare, are becoming increasingly concerned with protecting critical servers from attack. Our advisors have tremendous expertise, insights and influence, and we look forward to working closely with them.”

The Third Brigade Advisory Board also includes Dr. Paul Van Oorshcot, Professor in Computer Science, Carleton University, and Sandra Lambert, Managing Partner and Senior Consultant, Lambert & Associates, LLC, and former Chairperson of the Board, Founder and Founding President of ISSA.

About Third Brigade

Third Brigade specializes in providing intrusion prevention systems (IPS) to health care, government, telecommunications, financial services and other organizations that need to prevent attacks that exploit vulnerabilities in commercial and custom software, including web applications. It enables you to create and enforce comprehensive security policies that proactively protect critical applications, sensitive data, and hosts, ensure regulatory compliance, and maximize the performance of your people, processes and hosts. Unlike other intrusion prevention systems, Third Brigade’s is not intrusive. It has been architected from the ground-up for intrusion prevention, and is smaller, faster and simpler. Third Brigade. That’s control.
