International Academy of Design and Technology’s Annual Event, Dream 4












Academy student designed and created the “GREEN” bridal gown out of tissue


Troy, MI (Vocus) April 21, 2008

The fashion design students at the International Academy of Design and Technology, in Troy, are anxiously waiting to showcase their latest creations on April 26th at their annual fashion show, Dream 4. The show will take place at the Masonic Temple’s Crystal Ballroom in Detroit at 8pm, doors open at 7:30pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Academy (1850 Research Drive, Troy) – $ 20 for reserved seating, $ 10 for general admission.

Dream 4 will feature more than 50 student designers and fashion designs from several faculty members. The students were required to submit sketches of their designs in January, draft original patterns, and have their garments completed by the end of March for pre-judging. Each designer in the show was allowed to create up to seven garments, but each piece had to fall into select categories including Sportswear, Formal Attire, Menswear, and more. For a look at last year’s show, go to mms://media.careered.com/marketing/56/dream.wmv

This year the panel of judges included Susan Howes from Hour Detroit, Brian Heath from Fashion Week of Detroit, Angela Wisniewski from WDIV, and Bessie Sneed and Ken Dewey from The Fifth Avenue Club at Saks Fifth Avenue. Only six students will receive one of the coveted awards that are announced at the end of the show, including ‘Rising Star’ from Fashion Group International Detroit and ‘Best of Show’.

“This is our fourth annual fashion show, and each year the show seems to get bigger and better,” said Elaine Ohno, Chairperson of Dream 4 and faculty member at the Academy. “It’s always amazing to see how creative and professional the students’ garments become as they progress through our program. The annual fashion show really allows them to shine.”

Dream 4 is made possible with help of sponsors such as Kelly/Brady Advertising, Target Direct Marketing, DreamWorld Studios, John Robert Powers Modeling School, Allegra Print & Imaging, and more.

Goodbye Vioxxm, Celebrex – Hello Prolo

 

Goodbye Vioxxm, Celebrex – Hello Prolo











(PRWEB) March 10, 2005

Gilead Healing Center, a Christian facility has recently introduced Prolotherapy to its cutting-edge repertoire of non-invasive alternative medical therapies. The availability of this treatment comes as a breath of fresh air to thousands across Mid-Michigan in the wake of disturbing revelations regarding the safety of Vioxx and Celebrex.

When an injury to connective tissue occurs, a deficiency of cells called fibroblasts usually results due to incomplete healing. The supportive function of the ligaments is lost and stability in the joints is reduced. Small pain fibers in the ligaments transmit pain signals to the brain. The surrounding muscles involuntarily contract and go into painful spasms.

By injecting the prolotherapy at the site of injury, doctors have found that the body will naturally begin to heal and the strength of the connective tissue is often even greater than it was prior to injury.

Prolotherapy is a viable option for individuals who suffer from chronic low back pain, chronic neck pain, chronic headaches, non-rheumatoid arthritis, sports injuries, tennis elbow, hip pointer, and fibromyalgia.    Dr. Brian Vonk is the physician who administers the therapy at Gilead. He is an internist, cardiologist, and an interventional radiologist. “Prolo or Recon therapy is a safe and simple injection technique that stimulates the body to grow new ligament & tendon tissue, providing a cure for many with chronic painful conditions without drugs or surgery.

Like the former US Surgeon General Dr. C. Everett Koop, I’ve personally enjoyed the powerful healing effects of prolo by having it myself.”

What Are the Most Sought-After Drugs Online? eDrugSearch.com Shares Data on Top Prescription Medication Searches for December 2007

 

What Are the Most Sought-After Drugs Online? eDrugSearch.com Shares Data on Top Prescription Medication Searches for December 2007











San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) January 19, 2008

eDrugSearch.com, a specialized search engine and online community for Americans interested in purchasing safe, low-cost prescription drugs from licensed Canadian pharmacies and other licensed international pharmacies, today shared company data on its top drug searches for December 2007.

“Since we launched eDrugSearch.com in January 2007 as a safe place for consumers to share information and find affordable drugs online, our visitors have performed hundreds of thousands of searches on our Web site,” said Cary Byrd, president of eDrugSearch.com. “As part of our educational mission, we thought it would be valuable to share our search data for those interested in tracking trends in online drug sales.”

Here are the top 25 searches for prescription drugs and medical conditions on eDrugSearch.com for the month of December, starting with the most popular search:

1. Accupril

2. Provigil

3. Viagra

4. Combivent

5. Acyclovir

6. Phentermine

7. statins

8. acne

9. Yasmin

10. Plavix

11. Lipitor

12. Crestor

13. anxiety

14. Synthroid

15. Anaphylaxis

16. Valtrex

17. Topomax

18. Vytorin

19. Remeron

20. Xenical

21. Imitrex

22. Levaquin

23. Byetta

24. Celebrex

25. Strattera

“The list isn’t a perfect reflection of the most popular drugs purchased online, largely because of how our site interacts with Google and other search engines,” Byrd said. “For example, eDrugSearch.com appears very high in the organic search results for some drugs, but not as high for others. This obviously skews the results. With this caveat, however, we hope that over time our results will shed light on online drug trends.”

While many Americans are interested in Canadian pharmacies or other international pharmacies as a means of saving money on their prescriptions, they are often concerned about whether they can trust the quality and safety of the prescription drugs they find online. eDrugSearch.com addresses these concerns by only accepting online pharmacies in the eDrugSearch.com database that pass a rigorous prescreening process — including proof of home-country government licensing and third-party accreditations.

With more than 50,000 drug listings, eDrugSearch.com brings prescreened pharmacies together in one comprehensive, easy-to-use database. Additionally, eDrugSearch.com offers up-to-the-minute price search, extensive information on drugs and medical conditions and other features that make it the most advanced destination for online pharmacy consumers.
