SaltWorks(TM) Will Showcase 31 Gourmet Salts at 2006 Fancy Food Show in NYC

SaltWorks(TM) Will Showcase 31 Gourmet Salts at 2006 Fancy Food Show in NYC










REDMOND, Wash. (PRWEB) July 2, 2006

People no longer take Mark Zoske’s ideas with a grain of salt: What began as a hobby for Zoske just five years ago has grown into SaltWorks(TM), Inc. (http://www.saltworks.us or http://www.seasalt.com), one of the world’s leading purveyors of specialty cooking salts.

SaltWorks, which boasts the largest selection of specialty gourmet salts available, will offer its unique and rare salts at the 52nd Summer Fancy Food Show, July 9-11, at the Javits Center in New York City (Booth #2880). Some 30,000 visitors and 2,100 exhibitors from the specialty food industry from around the world will attend.

The show affords an opportunity for SaltWorks to showcase its Artisan Salt Company (http://www.artisansalt.com ) division, which is fast becoming a major supplier of gourmet salts to consumers and the food industry. Artisan is building its own buzz, not just for the 31 varieties of salts it offers, but also for its eye-catching package design. Artisan Salt’s Alaea Coarse Hawaiian Sea Salt was recently named a 2006 Product Awards finalist in the category of Outstanding Packaging or Design by the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade (NASFT).

Noting that gourmet salt is the hottest category in the gourmet food industry, Zoske attributes his success to several factors: “People are discovering recipes on TV, in magazines such as Cooking Light and Sunset, and on the Internet that call for gourmet salts; these salts are becoming an integral part of contemporary cooking. It is more and more common for stores to carry six or more varieties of gourmet salt.”

Zoske says both restaurants and anyone who likes to cook should use sea salt: “It’s less than a penny per serving, but more important, it’s healthier and tastes better than plain table salt.” Zoske says people are more health- conscious in general, and Baby Boomers in particular turn to a variety of salts for healthful ways to add interest to food.

BroadcastVision Entertainment Demonstrates New Video Game Exercise To Health Clubs At Club Industry Show 2005

BroadcastVision Entertainment Demonstrates New Video Game Exercise To Health Clubs At Club Industry Show 2005










Agoura Hills, CA (PRWEB) November 2, 2005

BroadcastVision Entertainment, a leading provider of exercise entertainment solutions for the fitness industry, will be demonstrating their new interactive exercise system, Dance Exercise Revolution™ at the Club Industry 2005 trade show at Chicago’s McCormick Place, November 3 -5.

Dance Exercise Revolution™ is an industrial strength, hardware package for the popular consumer video dance game, DDR™ (Dance Dance Revolution™) created by Konami Corporation. Scrolling onscreen arrows show exercisers where to place their feet on the corresponding Cobalt Flux dance platform. Points are gained by stepping on the right area of the dance platform at the right time. Some of the DDR™ games even provide a “workout” mode, which actually tracks how many calories the exerciser has burned. A person weighing 150 lbs. can burn about 640 calories in just one hour!

BroadcastVision Entertainment has created a durable hardware package suitable for the rigorous use in health clubs, YMCA’s and schools. The Dance Exercise Revolution system consists of a BroadcastVision 23” or 27” LCD screen mounted on a telescopic stand, a Playstation 2 with locking security enclosure, the Cobalt Flux industrial grade dance platform and controller, game software and speaker system. Key to fitness center operators is the 1 – 4 year warranties available on the dance platforms. “All the other dance platforms that we’ve seen in the market are designed for home use and they just don’t hold up in fitness center environments. Our partner, Cobalt Flux, has actually driven an SUV over the platforms and they don’t even crack! States Kevin Fee, V.P. of Marketing for BroadcastVision Entertainment.

Fee further adds “The fun and interactivity of Dance Exercise Revolution™ opens the door for people of all ages that don’t connect with conventional forms of exercise. It also creates an opportunity for membership-based clubs to attract entire families who can work out together. The combination of music, video and competition make Dance Exercise Revolution appealing to many of the couch potatoes of the world”.

BroadcastVision Entertainment, widely regarded as a pioneer of fitness entertainment, will be presenting many fitness entertainment solutions at Club Industry 2005. These would include personal cardio LCD TV’s that are positioned in front of cardio equipment that allow exercisers to watch their favorite television show, DVD or listen to a music CD. The exerciser simply plugs their headphone into the new BroadcastVision ORBIT screen controller, which they had designed by BMW Designworks.

BroadcastVision Entertainment will also present a new, Internet delivered, music and messaging system that will allow clubs to customize and day part music programs along with audio messages or advertisements that increase the club’s brand awareness, drive ancillary revenue streams and impart important messages to members.

DDR and Dance Dance Revolution are registered trademarks of Konami Corporation.

“Today’s Family” Show to Feature Carleton University

“Today’s Family” Show to Feature Carleton University










Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) March 4, 2005

Platinum Television Group is pleased to announce the selection of Carleton University for its innovative, educational television series, “Today’s Family”. The University will be featured as part of a series on “Choosing the Right University.”

Carleton University, located in Ottawa, Ont., Canada, is known for offering “the capital advantage” as it takes full advantage of the unique resources found in the nation’s capital including both government and high tech business. Founded in 1942, it has earned a reputation as one of the foremost universities in the country in the fields of public affairs, management, and high technology. In addition to its undergraduate and graduate programs in more than 50 disciplines, Carleton offers a variety of hands-on experiences through many co-operative education programs, work placements, field placements and internships. Carleton has forged partnerships with government organizations, private sector businesses, industry and other educational institutions. The University also has over 85 active academic exchange agreements with institutions and governments around the world and offers study abroad and exchange options.

“We know it’s extremely difficult for prospective students and their families to decide which post secondary institution they will select to attend,” says Susan Gottheil, Associate Vice-President, Enrollment Management at Carleton. “Carleton is trying to make that process just a little bit easier by reaching out and informing the American public about its quality programs which are nationally and often internationally recognized for their excellence and innovation.”

“We’re proud of Carleton’s track record. We have the oldest School of Journalism in Canada whose graduates are working all over the world. We have the fifth largest Faculty of Engineering and Design in Canada with topnotch faculty and resources in programs ranging from Industrial Design and Architecture to civil, environmental, and mechanical and aerospace Engineering. In fact, Canada’s first astronaut in space, Dr. Marc Garneau is the Chancellor of Carleton.”

Carleton University has long been known as a dynamic, research-intensive university, with a sincere commitment to its students. Its development of new and unique degree programs and outstanding student services are examples of how the university continues to anticipate and lead change. Carleton University graduates are trained to think critically, respond to the ever-changing needs of modern society, and pioneer new and innovative ideas. Carleton attracts some of the brightest students across the country and from more than 100 countries around the world, and boasts the fastest rising entry average in Ontario.

“Carleton’s caring community of more than 1,700 faculty and staff, 22,000 students, and 90,000 alumni contribute daily to the betterment of our community, our country and the world,” said Dr. Richard J. Van Loon, President and Vice-chancellor. During his tenure, the university has enhanced its research activities, improved the quality of the student experience, and launched the largest building program in its history. In August, Dr. David W. Atkinson will become the ninth president and vice-chancellor of Carleton for a six-year term. For more information, see http://www.carleton.ca/.
