Charlie Garland of The Innovation Outlet to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

Anyone can innovate.

— Charlie Garland

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 6, 2017 / — Viktor Frankl once said, “Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” According to Charlie Garland, this quote beautifully encapsulates how to utilize innovation.

Charlie Garland is the founder of The Innovation Outlet, where he helps his clients develop the self-confidence that comes with being able to innovate on their own, with their own intelligence, creativity and resources. Through workshops and consulting, Garland helps people understand what innovation is and removes these limitations to allow them to be more effective innovators.

“Innovation may be the catchword of our day, but really it’s no different than resourcefulness: leveraging existing resources in unique ways to solve problems,” says Garland. “It applies to you as an individual, your relationships, and society – not just business and technology.”

According to Garland, innovation means creating new value for one or more stakeholders through the unique use of available resources. The times demand that we take the resources we have available to us and recontextualize them to find new uses and expressions of those resources.

“People often discuss innovation in a very narrow, limiting way, strictly in the context of technology,” says Garland. “I teach people to not make the mistake of too narrowly defining innovation.”

Garland is the author of the forthcoming Innovation Inspiration, which follows some of the greatest innovation thought leaders and practitioners of our time.

“These individuals are uniquely applying innovation tools and methods to effect great outcomes in business and non-business applications around the world, says Garland. “It’s about the different ways people apply innovation and how to follow in their footsteps. Being an innovator means breaking out of your comfort zone and exploring and discovering new things beyond what you already know. Anyone can innovate.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Charlie Garland in a four-part interview with Jim Masters on July 10th at 1pm EDT and with Doug Llewelyn on July 17th at 1pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

10 Facts you did not know About Anti-Aging

Aging is a factor to every person. Once we are born we get to grow from young age to older age.

KETTERING, NORTHAMPTONSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, July 6, 2017 / — There are some changes that we are likely to experience when we age. The changes including aging. Aging comes in all shape. Commonly, aging is associated with wrinkled skin and folds. The skins get to sag as we grow older. Aging normally starts to appear when we are 20. To slow the rate of aging, there are some products majorly creams that reduce the speed of aging. The anti-aging products are so many in the market and here are some of the facts you need to know about these products;
1. Anti-Aging Products have Different Prices
Normally the anti-aging products are categorized and tagged with different prices. The prices are just but the manufacturer’s wish. Many people may think that the most expensive anti-aging products are the best products to use. This is not true at ll. You should not go for the expensive products instead you need to now the products that are best for your skin.
2. Anti-Aging Products are made of Different Ingredients
The anti-aging creams, serums, and lotions are made of, different ingredients. Therefore when purchasing them, you need to be very keen to find out what their ingredients are. Most common ingredient that works best for almost every aging person are the antioxidants, and those with hyaluronic acids. Skins can react differently to these ingredients and it is wise then to know your skin.
3. Why Antioxidant Rich Serum are good
The antioxidant-based products are the best to be used as anti-aging. The reason why this component is very important is that it gives better protection against environmental free radicals. This will in turn keep your skin radiant and very healthy.
4. Early use of Anti-Aging Products is good
The wrinkles and folds that appear as a result of aging normally start to appear at very young age. Therefore using the anti-aging products at early 20 will help to reduce the aging process. The use of anti-aging products should be also consistent, not at one point should one stop to use as the wrinkles may appear more frequent than before.
5. Sunscreen as an Anti-aging Product
When one is exposed to too much sunlight the skin tend to smoke and tan. The smoking and the turning of the skin are the biggest contributors to the development of the wrinkles. Therefore when exposed to the sun it is good to always use sunscreen creams to avoid aging fast. Sunscreen are the best since they provide UV protection unlike some of the anti-aging products.
6. Just a Single Anti-Aging Product is enough
When you are looking for lasting solution to your skin, it is important to be consistent in the use of cream. Hoping from one cream to another will not help rather it has more dangers. When different anti-aging products are mixed their affectivity is lowered. The best thing to do is to identify the best product for your skin and use it consistently. Other products may promise best results but may not work with your skin.
7. Creams and Serums are two Different Things
The two can be used simultaneously. The creams are mainly used to provide skin hydration and nourishment. Creams are used to treat deeper skin as they contain active ingredients. The active ingredients have the ability to interact with the deeper layers of the skin and thus for better results it is good to use them both.
8. Change of Routine on the Use of Anti-Aging
As one ages, the wrinkles and folds becomes more intense. Therefore the frequency of the use of the anti-aging products should as well be increased to counter the increasing risks. The skin may also become used to the product and thus you need to adopt a better product.
9. Botox and Filler Injections
Will these kind of treatment help to reduce aging? It may help to lessen the wrinkles in your face but will not last for long. The Botox procedures are only meant for that time and will not prevent further aging.
10. Application of Anti-aging Products
The application of these product depends on the type of your skin. For the dry skins, it is advisable to apply the cream at night, the same thing for the sensitive skin. For the oily skin, it is good to apply in the morning hours. One needs to know their skin patterns before adopting the use of anti-aging products.

Creative Startups–Leading Accelerator for the Creative Economy–Goes Global

Application Deadline July 9

The starving artist? So 1990s.”

— Alice Loy

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 6, 2017 / — As the labor market in the United States wrestles with the shift away from traditional manufacturing and service jobs, there is one global sector that outshines the rest. The Creative Economy is growing at an estimated 8% per year, creating high-wage jobs and reinvigorating rust belt regions. When governments reduce their arts budgets, they ignore the 30 million people employed in the creative industries globally. With $2.2 trillion in economic revenues, creatives are no small factor in
the vibrant health of every country worldwide.

Explains CEO and Co-founder of Creative Startups, Alice Loy: “The starving artist is a thing of the past. Just think about our own spending habits, how much more we spend now on Netflix, iTunes, games, eating out, and travel. The Creative Economy will keep growing—we see it in our daily routines.” These changing economic patterns inspired Loy and her co-founder, Tom Aageson, to launch the world’s first startup accelerator dedicated to creative entrepreneurs. “We knew that 50% of creative grads nationwide had tried and failed to start a company. We knew they were digital natives. So, we thought, why not bring these creative entrepreneurs into the startup world and invest in their success?”

The gamble paid off. Since 2014, the nonprofit accelerator has hosted 41 startups that have gone on to raise $9 million in private investment and generate $11 million in new revenues. Most impressively, 90% of their alumni companies are still going strong. Funded by the National Science Foundation and the Kauffman Foundation, Creative Startups has disrupted the accelerator market—currently overrun by tech startups—with their rigorous 8-week course designed by current and former Stanford educators. But alumni don’t just come away with a sterling education; Creative Startups provides them with world-class mentors, angel and venture investors, and a pitch competition where the top three startups split a pool of $50,000 in seed-stage investment.

Cities around the world have contacted Creative Startups inquiring about licensing its accelerator and abbreviated pre-accelerator LABS. Loy says, “It’s been amazing! Peru, Malaysia, Australia, El Salvador, Qatar, and Portugal, are all in the pipeline. Regions everywhere are investing in their Creative Economies—they know that creative entrepreneurs strengthen regional identity and build the jobs of the future.”

Creative Startups Accelerator is ingeniously crafted for startups scaling globally: courses are online for the first 8 weeks with a one-week Deep Dive in the anchor city. The Kuwait Accelerator is unique in that it is hosted in-person and thus startups must either be able to commute or relocate to Kuwait City. Accelerator licensee, Rashid Sultan, Founder and Managing Partner of Messilah Ventures, says he was looking for an extraordinary accelerator and Creative Startups’ was the obvious choice for Kuwait: “In partnering with Creative Startups, we aim to enrich the startup ecosystem in the Gulf by assisting startups to move successfully onto the next stage of business growth.”

Recently published, Creative Startups’ 2016 Impact Report describes the program in full and gives a glimpse into the future of startups. With the graduating founders 70% women or people from minority communities, their companies range from 3D printers of pinball machine accessories to the now famous Meow Wolf, the nation’s largest “explorable art world” whose first angel investor was George R.R. Martin, creator of "Game of Thrones."
Applications for Albuquerque close July 9 and Kuwait July 22.

West Virginia Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Offers a Power Plant Worker or Coal Miner In West Virginia With Mesothelioma on The Spot Access to The Nation's Top Compensation Lawyers

It is attention to detail about how or where the asbestos exposure occurred that creates the best possible mesothelioma compensation results for a diagnosed person in West Virginia ”

— West Virginia Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 6, 2017 / — The West Virginia Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We offer on the spot access to some of the nation's most capable, skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys for a person who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma in West Virginia-especially if they are a power plant worker or a coal miner. As we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303 the best mesothelioma compensation only happens if the person with this rare form of cancer has the most qualified legal team assisting them.

"Our number one goal is the best possible mesothelioma financial compensation for a person in West Virginia with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Why settle for less?" http://WestVirginia.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Center fears that most of the time a person with mesothelioma in West Virginia or their family will act impulsively when it comes to hiring a lawyer. What the diagnosed person in West Virginia or their family may not realize is–some of the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys will provide them with a no obligation detailed mesothelioma compensation evaluation and the attorneys will spend the time walking the diagnosed person through the financial compensation process. The incredibly skilled mesothelioma attorneys the Center recommends will also do everything possible to determine how or where the person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos.

A power plant worker or coal miner with mesothelioma in West Virginia may have been exposed to asbestos in more than one state. It is attention to detail about how or where the asbestos exposure occurred that creates the best possible mesothelioma compensation results for a diagnosed person as the West Virginia Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303.

The West Virginia Mesothelioma Victims Center wants to emphasize their unsurpassed free services are available statewide to a diagnosed victim in any community in the Mountain State including Wheeling, Morgantown, Martinsburg, Charleston, Huntington, and Fairmont. http://WestVirginia.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The West Virginia Mesothelioma Victims Center is also incredibly focused on making certain a diagnosed victim in the Mountain State has the best treatment options. Two of the better options for diagnosed victims in West Virginia include the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center in Morgantown, or the University of Pittsburgh’s Cancer Institute:

* The Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center Morgantown, West Virginia :

* The University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania:

The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. This year between 2500, and 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.

Arkansas Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Employee of a Federal Contractor in Arkansas to Call About Rewards If Their Employer Is Falsely Claiming to be Minority Owned

If you work for a company that is falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned business in Arkansas to get an unfair advantage on federal jobs or federal contract bidding-please call us ”

— Arkansas Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 6, 2017 / — The Arkansas Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “We are urging an employee of an Arkansas based federal contractor to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if their employer is falsely claiming to be a woman or minority owned business. As we would like to discuss anytime the rewards for this type of information can be very significant. We are talking about any type of company in Arkansas doing work for the federal government including road builders, defense contractors, a company doing clean-up work for the EPA, a GSA contract, or a company providing services to the Department of Agriculture." http://Arkansas.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The Center believes that many companies misrepresent the nature of their ownership structure to gain an extremely unfair advantage when bidding for lucrative federal contracts. As an example, the US Department of Transportation mandates that 10% of federal highway jobs go to a minority or woman owned business.

The Arkansas Corporate Whistleblower Center is saying, "If a white male appoints his wife as President of a company providing services to a EPA Super Fund Site in Arkansas-it’s wrong-if she does not actually run the company. The federal bidding system designed to assist minority or women owned businesses obtain federal work contracts is very easy to manipulate. The company could be based anywhere in Arkansas such as Little Rock, Fort Smith, Fayetteville, Springdale, Jonesboro, or Pine Bluff.

“If you work for a company that is falsely claiming to be a minority or woman owned business in Arkansas to get an unfair competitive advantage on federal jobs or federal contract bidding-please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 and let’s explore the reward possibilities. Why sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it could have been worth?" http://Arkansas.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Arkansas Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Arkansas Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or an Arkansas based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing in Arkansas can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://Arkansas.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com.

The ICWP 50/50 Applause Awards for Gender Parity in Theatre has extended the nominations deadline to 10 July

It is important and necessary that theatre reflects the imagination of female dramatists and that professional theatres use their resources equally to support playwriting as a career for women.”

— Patricia L. Morin

NEW YORK, USA, July 5, 2017 / — (The World) – The International Centre for Women Playwrights (ICWP) is proud to sponsor the sixth annual 50/50 Applause Award, celebrating theatres which achieved gender parity among their produced playwrights within the past theatre season.

Research in the UK, France, Canada, Australia and the USA, in the last decade, has revealed the lack of equal representation of female playwrights on professional theatre stages. A typical ratio of male to female playwrights is 2:1 Many theatre companies have committed to take action and demonstrate gender equity in their programming.

Patricia L. Morin, Co-chair of the 50/50 Applause Awards Committee, said, "We applaud theatre companies that produce works by women at least half the time. Theatres like the Royal Court Theatre, London, UK, the HERE Art Centre New York, the Peridot Theatre, Victoria, Australia and the Prairie Theatre Exchange in Manitoba, Canada are showing the way. It is important and necessary that theatre reflects the imagination of female dramatists and that professional theatres use their resources equally to support playwriting as a career for women. We have had reports from theatres that having a 50/50 Applause Award has added weight to their successful applications for funding."

Anyone may nominate eligible theatres, including members of the public, ICWP Members, artistic directors and other theatre employees. This year's nomination form will remain open until 10 July, 2017 on the ICWP website, where you will also find links to videos, press releases, and news.

Best model to predict cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma metastasis?

SKIN: The Journal of Cutaneous Medicine(TM), Development of metastatic risk model for cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma

In the southern half of the United States, metastatic cSCC is estimated to have a higher mortality than melanoma thus demonstrating the importance of identifying these high risk tumors early”

— Scott W. Fosko, M.D.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, July 5, 2017 / — Cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) is the most skin common cancer capable of metastasis, striking over 500,000 Americans and killing over 3,000 each year making it important to identify those at highest risk for more definitive treatment and careful follow up.

A new article published today in SKIN: The Journal of Cutaneous Medicine(TM) explores different statistical approaches to predict cSCC metastasis.

Until now, it has been difficult to identify persons at higher risk for metastasis. This model helps physicians better identify cSCC patients who are at an increased risk and require closer follow-up and further care.

Scott W. Fosko, M.D., of the Department of Dermatology at Mayo Clinic and coauthors used three statistical approaches: multivariable logistic regression, pattern classification, and sum score method to predict cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma metastasis. The pattern classification model was found to be the most accurate and that the sum score method subtype with a factor greater than 2 had a lower sensitivity, but may be easier to use in clinical practice.

“In the southern half of the United States, metastatic cSCC is estimated to have a higher mortality than melanoma thus demonstrating the importance of identifying these high risk tumors early” reported Fosko and colleagues in this study.

SKIN: The Journal of Cutaneous Medicine(TM) is a peer-reviewed online medical journal that is the official journal of The National Society for Cutaneous Medicine.
