Invents Company Introduces, The Inverted Dunk Tank”, Find Water Sport Fun In A Variety Of Places

Nov 22, 2014


Entertainment comes in many forms and this new device is another form of the Dunk Tank seen at carnivals, fairs and other events. It is a modified version of the classic dunk tank that soaks the target from above as opposed to dropping them into a large pool of water. The Inverted Dun Tank is able to provide a safer and more efficient model for any type of fund raising activity right in one’s own backyard, in a public park, at a church event, or other similar types of arena.

The overall fixture resembles a large shower head. Power is provided by a 12-volt battery, charged continuously by an external solar panel, ensuring energy efficiency. The Inverted Dunk Tank Graphic shows the ingenuity of the inventor who recognized the need for such a product.

The Patent Pending Inverted Dunk Tank was invented by Garry Bruce of Pottstown, PA who said, “Amusement parks and other types of youth entertainment are fun for everyone and the Dunk Tank has always been a favorite at county and state fairs as well as events at churches, charities and other areas. The inverted Dunk Tank is just as much fun but the ‘target’ gets doused as opposed to dunked. The various sounds of pitching success generates gleeful entertainment for all spectators, if not for the victim!”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Development of the product is being handled by Invents Company. For more information about licensing or sale, contact the Licensing Department @ Invents Company, 450 7th Avenue, Suite 1107 New York, NY 10123. Tel: 212-620-2629

CN Train Derailment Prompts Saskatchewan Villagers to Evacuate

Nov 21, 2014


With the help of the RCMP, everyone was evacuated within the five-mile radius area which accounted to 50 people from Clair. Clair is approximately 190 kilometres east of Saskatoon.

The CN train was hauling a hundred cars of mixed freight but 26 went off the tracks, six were carrying dangerous goods. Two of the derailed cars with dangerous goods spilled petroleum distillate which caused the fire.

The Transportation Safety Board of Canada (TSB) already confirmed that the derailed cars contained dangerous goods; hence, the TSB sent a team to investigate the scene.

According to the witnesses, there was a 30-metre high flame swallowing the derailment site. The CN staff, the local first responders, as well as the provincial hazardous materials crew were dispatched in the scene to extinguish the fire and clean up the area.

MiraCor Confronts a Sweaty Problem with Inspired Innovation

Nov 19, 2014


MiraCor International Corp. has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo in order to bring their newest innovation in performance knits to the public. This campaign was launched on October 27th and has a funding goal of $ 35,000, which the MiraCor team hopes to raise before the end of their campaign on December 14th so they can revolutionize the sportswear industry. MiraCor® is a state-of-the-art fabric innovation that will change the way people see “sweaty” work-outs and daily activities. The creators state, “MiraCor Diffusion™ fabrics finally achieve and sustain unequaled dryness next to the skin to provide long-sought-after comfort, heightened performance and hygiene benefits from sports, fitness and outdoor active wear apparel.”

Similar to the way that Lycra is added to sportswear to help tight-fitting garments keep their shape, MiraCor® is an ingredient that manufacturers can use in clothing production in order to produce high quality apparel that is capable of keeping a person comfortably dry even during the most rigorous work-out. Garments produced with MiraCor have been shown to be 13 times more effective at transferring sweat away from the skin, and can keep up with all activity levels, any lifestyle and virtually any environment. Even the sweaty humidity of Florida is powerless against the innovative MiraCor Diffusion™ technology.

MiraCor has been dermatologically tested and approved, in a 3-phase test occurring over a 12 month period. The team has diligently engaged in prolonged research and intense scrutiny from: Textile Research Institute (T.R.I.) at Princeton University, Institute of Environmental Research (I.E.R.) at Kansas State University, Hohenstein Institute in Munich, Germany and Dermatological Clinic at University of Modena in Italy where MiraCor was dermatologically tested and certified. The groundbreaking MiraCor® Diffusion Technology has also undergone intense academic scrutiny from research scientists and toxicology clinicians at a 30 billion dollar Dow Industrial Company that concluded, “This new science is the single-most important comfort factor in the entire body clothing climate system.” The team has also engaged in several months of field trials in order to test the true performance of clothing items produced using MiraCor technology. These trials involved experienced climbers in the Himalayas, Arctic expeditions, high-altitude ski adventures in Canada, and Olympic track and field athletes. MiraCor also engaged the assistance of high-profile outdoor retailers who had field trials completed by their own staff people.

Now that the company has concluded the research and testing phase, the MiraCor team is ready to begin the final stages in production so that they can officially release their innovative MiraCor Diffusion technology based products to the public. With this ultimate goal in mind, they are reaching out to the crowd via their Indiegogo campaign. As an added bonus with this campaign, the team is offering several perks to their supporters. These perks, which serve as funding incentives, range in value from a “Follow Us Reward” which allows a funder to follow the campaign with a small donation, to gift rewards that are valid toward purchase, various merchandise items, and the chance to pre-purchase MiraCor performance apparel at a greatly discounted price. Full details can be found on their Indiegogo campaign page.


About MiraCor International Corp.:  

MiraCor International Group is a global “fiber and fabric innovation” company that was founded by Peter Wittig who has been associated with the apparel and textile industries his entire career.  Their latest Diffusion Science achievements are guaranteed to change the way people solve “sweaty” problems. The Diffusion knits provide increased comfort, heightened performance, and hygiene benefits from performance wear and intimate apparel. The Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded to George Wittig, Ph.D. for his accomplishment that made possible this one-of-a-kind microfiber that solves persistent “sweaty” problems for Every Body.

Two Well-Known East Tennessee HVAC Businesses Have Combined Their Operations

Nov 15, 2014


MK Russell & Abbott Heating and Air in Maryville, which marked its 37th anniversary this year, has purchased Alcoa Heating and Cooling, founded by Jamie and Dorothy Rader in 2006.  The Alcoa-based company will be part of MK Russell & Abbott, which provides residential heating and air conditioning services primarily in Blount County.

“My wife and I are moving to Chattanooga because of her job promotion, and I wanted to be sure my heating and air customers continue to be taken care of,” said Rader, Alcoa Heating and Cooling owner.  “Each of my customers is special to me and I was picky about who would take over.  MK Russell & Abbott team members are experienced professionals, and they stand behind their service.  My customers can trust them and rely on them to do the right thing.”

For the past several years, Alcoa Heating and Cooling has been a Readers Choice award winner, and MK Russell and Abbott was a finalist for the 2014 Business of the Year, an award given by the Blount Chamber of Commerce.  Both companies are dedicated to serving the community and providing excellent customer service. 

“It’s really a seamless transition because Alcoa heating and air customers can still use the same phone numbers they are used to, plus Jamie will be available to us on a consultative basis should the need arise,” said Chris Hurley, MK Russell and Abbott owner. “Customers can expect that we will gladly service any brand of equipment, and if a new system is needed, there are many options within the Trane line of high efficiency equipment and financing terms for almost anyone.”

MK Russell & Abbott will also offer Alcoa Heating and Air customers the opportunity to join its “Comfort Club,” beginning at $ 14 a month, which guarantees first-in-line emergency service, two seasonal system tune-ups, a professional system cleaning and other benefits.

“A lot of attention has been given to the black dog that people see on the MKRA trucks and in our advertising. There are reasons for that dog. Think about the qualities of man’s best friend: loyal, reliable, eager to please–that’s how we do business,” Hurley said.

“A home is one of your biggest investments, and we take into account that each home has unique heating and cooling needs,” said Chris Hurley, general manger.  “We respect the privilege to be in your home and we take the extra time and effort to determine what is best for 

your specific situation and present options before you commit to buying because our company is in the relationship for the long haul.”

MK Russell and Abbott anticipates growth because of the merger. The company is now accepting applications for experienced service technicians and experienced installers who are interested in being part of a team committed to exceptional customer service. MKRA is a drug- and alcohol-free workplace, and requires that employees pass a criminal background check.  Interested applicants should send work history to or call (865) 982-5133.

MK Russell & Abbott is located at 2124 East Broadway Ave. in Maryville, directly across from Food City.  Founders of MK Russell and Abbott are Chris Hurley, Chris Kelso, Mike Parker, Fred Finney and David Spencer, all of whom work daily in the business.

Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters & The Puerto Rican Association for Human Development, Inc. (PRAHD) Sign Agreement

Nov 13, 2014


The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters and The Puerto Rican Association for Human Development, Inc. signed an agreement  Nov. 6,  creating a training program that could lead to candidates becoming union apprentice carpenters.

The agreement calls for PRAHD approved applicants to enter a pre-apprenticeship program that provides fundamental skills of the carpentry trade and prepares candidates for entrance requirements in its full apprenticeship program.

The Carpenter Contractor Trust NY/NJ helped to facilitate the agreement. The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters (NRCC) and the New Jersey Carpenters Training and Education Fund (NJCTF) are sponsoring the program.

The NRCC places great value on PRAHD’s influence in the community and its outreach to women and minorities. The impetus for the pre-apprenticeship training program grew out of the involvement of the Sisters of the Brotherhood, which is part of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters. Its mission is to promote activism and diversity and by increasing the number of women members in the carpentry trade.

“We have always promoted and supported the idea that the carpentry trade should be open to everyone who is interested in becoming a highly skilled craftsperson,” says Michael Capelli, Executive Secretary-Treasurer, NRCC.  “This pre-apprenticeship program creates a bridge for individuals who might otherwise not have access to an exciting, worthwhile career.”

“This is a tremendous first step for people who wish to improve their job skills and take a great leap forward in a well-respected, well-paying career path,” says Yvonne Lopez, Executive Director/CEO, PRAHD.  “This pre-apprenticeship program will help people who have traditionally lacked the opportunity to acquire skills to lift themselves up into higher paying jobs.”

The structured, unpaid program occurs during the evening hours to allow candidates to maintain daytime work schedules.

The training is conducted at The Northeast Regional Council of Carpenters Training Center,  Kenilworth, NJ.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for the pre-apprenticeship candidates to receive free training and begin a college education,” Lopez says.

New Mobile Health Application, Designed To Retain Nursing Home Census And Minimize Re-Hospitalization, Is Revolutionizing The Industry.

Nov 12, 2014


Reducing re-hospitalizations is one of the most important initiatives for long-term care facilities today. Skilled Nursing Facilities as well as Hospitals suffer greatly as a result of the high frequency “bounce back”.

Skilled Nursing Facilities across the country are struggling with the task of retaining census, nevertheless the rate of hospital return seems to be rapidly increasing. The “bounce back” from long-term facilities to the hospitals hurts all parties as a result of the penalties imposed by the payers. Because  medical and/or long term care reimbursement rates are on the decline, and cost of malpractice insurance for physicians is on the rise, many Doctors choose to send Nursing Home patients back to the hospital at the first sign of clinical instability as a precaution. This practice creates additional strain on the hospital system as many are already being penalized by CMS for the rapid rate of return and failure to maintain proper length of stays.

“Hospitals or emergency departments readmit a large proportion of Medicare beneficiaries within 30 days of discharge from nursing homes” according to a new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.

Triagestat, is an easy-to-use, mobile phone based application created by New York based Healthcare Marketing company Six22LLC, in conjunction with  Healthcare software company Argusoft. “We spend our days creating new initiatives to assist our clients in their continued quest to keep their beds full” stated Jason Newman, Chief Executive Officer of Six22LLC

“Senior Care is increasingly becoming a key issue and there is no one size fits all solution. We have been tirelessly working to customize the Traigestat solution to meet the needs of the individual Nursing home environment”

said Ram Gopalan, Managing Director of Argusoft.  The pairing of the two companies paved the way for the creation of Triagestat, a solution for CNA’s, NP’s and Doc’s or anyone else in the at thesesenior nursing homes

The app enables anyone from CNA’s, Nurse Practitioners NP’s. and Doctors Doc’s to use the program to monitor, react and report acute changes in conditions as well as view and update a patient’s condition. per the Interact 3.0 protocols for patient managemenThe decision tree in the app is based on research complied from closely monitoring facility census and behavior trendst. Based on the Interact decision treesthe findings and information input in realtime, the system informs the on call NP’s or Doc’s of the situation via push notification, text message or email of the patient condition and with the supporting case history and baseline information so they can communicate and make a confident decision on the possible need for hospital readmission, only if necessary.

“In monitoring our day to day facility census we  realized how many patients were going out and it was fast, frequent and furious. We needed a solution and decided to make one” concluded Newman.

The program reduces the need for unnecessary rehospitalization because there is no misinformation and it ensures that all pertinent patient data is effectively communicated throughout the system in real time. 

Triagestat is a cloud based application with its mobile components being available on the Apple App Store and Google Play store. Triagestat uses HIPAA compliant facilities to handle patient data and adheres to the strictest security and privacy polices. Triagestat has offices on the East Coast, West Coast and abroad and provides 24 x 7 support. For more information or to schedule a demo please visit or call 1844 44 Triage
