China is renown for its diverse collection of historical findings and archaeological discoveries that let tourists take a glimpse into the past. Lvpad.com, an O2O (Online-To-Offline) tourism company, is allowing travelers to explore these treasures at a fraction of the price, in comparison to competing travel agencies, in as little as a few days to their itinerary. Lvpad.com’s unique booking capabilities grant travelers the convenience of being able to customize tailor-made tours to visit some of the top archaeological destinations in China.
It is without a doubt the ornate and opulent past of China still lives on today with the plethora of pagodas, temples, artifacts, and more spread throughout the country. With each finding, it represents the fine beauty and rich cultural heritage of this ancient land giving travelers an opportunity to really experience the true heart of the Far East.
Topping the list is the Yinxu Ruins Museum, also known as the Mausoleum of Fu Hao, which focuses on one of the most well known heroines in Chinese history. Located in Anyang City of the Henan Province, the mausoleum was founded in 1976 documenting and exhibiting some of the most intact artifacts from Lady Fu Hao.
However, the history of the heroine herself dates back to almost 3,000 years ago during the Shang Dynasty. She was widely considered the most prized and beloved of the 60 wives of King Wu Ding. Her unique position allowed her to lead several military brigades successfully expanding her husband’s territory, as well as defending it from Indo-European invaders. It was her triumphs in victory that gave her outstanding recognition and admiration by the people as well as the King. Her contributions to China made her legendary despite her short existence at 33 years old.
The mausoleum celebrates her life and showcases thousands of well-preserved items that include inscriptions commending her victories and prominence during her lifetime. This attraction is something to not be looked over if a tourist want to get deep into Chinese history.
Another notable historical attraction is the Famen Temple Museum. Located about 120 kilometers west of Xi’an City in the Shaanxi Province, stands one of the most historical and important pagodas in Chinese history. However, the main attraction itself lies beneath the temple, known as the Underground Palace of Famen Temple.
Discovered in 1987, it was accidently found during a restoration process of the pagoda above. Covering about 31 square meters, the underground palace holds a wide selection of valuables significant to Buddhism. One of the most prized possessions is the Sakyamuni Finger Sarira, a highly preserved Buddhist relic. The palace itself is adorned with white marble and limestone with the inner walls engraved in Buddhist inscriptions. Visitors will also be able to explore the different sectors of the palace, including the reception hall, treasure hall, and others that showcase hundreds of well-crafted ceramics, silk, silverware, gold, and scriptures.
Lastly, traveling to China is not complete without discovering and laying eyes on one of the Eighth Wonders of the World, the Terracotta Army Museum.
In 1974, villagers near Xianyang in Shaanxi Province unearthed what is now one of the most must-see attractions in the world. The expansive site exhibits hundreds of terracotta warriors and horses that can date back over 2,000 years –old. The fine details of each sculpture evoke a remarkable sense of realism giving visitors an exquisite representation of royalty and warfare during that time.
Each attraction is a highlight and invaluable treasure to China. A new and unique tourism-based company, Lvpad.com is a website that aims to give prospective travelers to the Far East a chance to get to know the ‘real’ China in every aspect big or small. Their customizable options give travelers the convenience of adding these unique destinations to any itinerary (pre-existing or not) without the hassles of hidden fees and the ease of knowing it will be safe, affordable, and worth their while.

SmartenFit App available on the Apple App Store!
Available today, the SmartenFit app is a research-based healthy eating and fitness app that provides a holistic approach to wellness. The goal of SmartenFit is to help users adopt a sustainable healthy lifestyle – beyond New Year’s resolutions. The app is for those looking for a simplified way to monitor their nutritional choices and exercise, and set realistic and attainable goals without having to count every calorie or step. The tips and tools in SmartenFit are complementary to the book “Smart People Don’t Diet” by Dr. Charlotte Markey, a health psychology professor at Rutgers University. The advice in the book and the SmartenFit app is based on decades of scientific evidence from psychologists, nutritionists, public health professionals, and doctors.
The SmartenFit app features:
· Periodically updated news feed with research-based health tips, articles, and inspiration
· Healthier food alternative database which is vetted by a registered dietitian and updated frequently (New large scale update scheduled for mid-January)
· Food diary allowing for both photo and text entries
· BMI calculator

· Personal dashboard with graphs to track your progress
The app is $ 2.99 and ad free. Future versions of the app may include a feature that allows users to submit a week of their food diary to a registered dietitian for review and feedback on their diet along with suggestions on how to improve their nutritional profile.
SmartenFit was developed by three friends with PhD’s and a common interest in health and wellness. Char, Lorie, and Jen met in their doctoral program at the University of California, Riverside in 1997 and have been friends ever since. Char became a world-renowned expert in health psychology and currently teaches at Rutgers University (www.CharlotteMarkey.com). Lorie became a data scientist and entrepreneur working in the domains of marketing research and education (http://coreducational.com/). Jen went on to become an expert in user experience and mobile innovation and has worked for several companies in Silicon Valley including Intuit, Microsoft, and America Online. As working mothers, they have all struggled to find easy ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Thus, the primary goal of SmartenFit is to provide a tool for regular people with busy lives that facilitates a path toward sustainable good health.

The winter months bring colder weather, and with it an increased chance of a common and costly problem for home and business owners —bursting water pipes. Keep in mind pipes of any material can burst, including PVC, plastic, iron and lead.

Or, if their pipes are uninsulated, let water flow through (even if only a drip or trickle),” said Neda Howell of ServiceMaster Restoration By Simons. “Doing so will ensure the water won’t have the opportunity to freeze and pipes should survive until temperatures warm above freezing.”

A vice of raw emotion and a life with so many possibilities, Anjolique found her key to self and expression through a collection of trials and its experiences. “I am protected by music, entertainment, and the embodiment of the arts.” Her music showcases a broad range of confusion on top of cluttered thoughts, party hits, and happy, love songs. Born and raised in the city of Chicago and surrounding suburbs, Anjolique felt outcasted being the “smart girl” with a wide range of affiliations. “I had no set clique. I ate lunch with the cheerleaders, track stars, and the Goths. It just depended on the day.” In every attempt to learn how to sing she began recording over radio stars like Ashanti, Whitney Houston, Destiny’s Child, and Aaliyah with her karaoke machine. Anjolique quickly gained a knack for notes and harmonies singing in her church choir, although, it was said that she needed to “find her own voice”. When she did, in 2003, it was on a local album “Jackin’ for Beats”.
She sang and rapped to Eminem’s Cleaning out my Closet. “I tell anybody I was a rapper WAY before I was a singer.” High School was where she both lost herself and found herself in what would eventually become her music journey. “Music has a way of depicting your mood. It can give you a mood, change it, or emphasize it. At least that’s what it did for me.” By this time she had already learned to play clarinet, alto saxophone, and bass keys. In college she began to reinvent herself and look for ways to entertain in any venue she could. By the time she graduated Anjolique had performed her own music on every local stage in the WV tri-county area, sang background with Lupe Fiasco at 2008 Lollapalooza & K-Jon a numerous times in Chicago, became known as a spoken word artist in multiple states, built a catalogue that expressed the different facets of her love for music, vocally coached perspective artists for Good Music, and more; all while staying consistent in her local church choir and outreach programs.
Determined to become the best she could, she recorded quite a few tunes in the West Virginia State University radio station as she was unable to afford (or find) a studio in WV. There she taught herself how to use such programs as Acid and Sony Sound Forge while over actively seeking her degree in pre-medical sciences. Moving to Florida was a brave endeavor. Anjolique began performing multiple times a week on stages from public South Beach to private concerts in Naples. She took each opportunity to perform everywhere she traveled. This included NYC’s Village Underground, Atlanta’s Apache, Chicago, Tampa’s USF, and Los Angeles. That’s when Anjolique’s ability to capture an audience of any size became evident. Her indistinguishable drive, impeccable pen, and sincere personality put her in situations to write for multiple artists on IMG/Strong Arm, and Poe Boy.
She’s opened up for legendary artists like Denise Williams, hosted comedy shows and charity events, sang the national anthem at nationally televised sports events, and done tributes to the Negro National Anthem at political (State of the City Address) gatherings. But more importantly are the strides she takes to learn the industry she seems unable to run from. “You can learn to master your craft through those who have mastered there’s.” The world should get ready for this dedicated performer. Her sound is undefined. Her look is captivating. Her energy is awe-inspiring “Every day is an experience. Every Lesson a song. And if you learn to see through the eyes of a soul, you’ll never be lost for words.”

The first 2015 performance of Long Island’s first local storytelling slam (mostly) TRUE THINGS will take place on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 7 pm, at The Performing Arts Studio of New York, 224 E. Main St., Port Jefferson, NY. Tickets are $ 10 and can be purchased online at Brown Paper Tickets or at the door. Call 631-366-4265 or email email@example.com for reservations.

A storytelling slam is an invitation to share a slice of real life in a room full of people who appreciate a well-told tale. This show features 4 storytellers, each sharing a true story but only one tells the unvarnished truth. The other 3 are also narratives of personal experiences but with anything from little white lies to whopping inconsistencies woven into it. After all the stories are told, the audience gets into the action, asking questions of the tellers, then voting for who is the telling the whole truth. Winners get a prize.
(mosty) TRUE THINGS features Long Island citizens from all walks of life. Recent shows have featured a television news producer, a psychic medium, an abstract artist, a health educator, and an MBA among a wide range of other professions. “There is laughter in the room” wrote New York Newsday in a November 20, 2014 feature article about this monthly event, and “it was a really profound experience” according to Alicia R. Peterson, one of the storytellers that evening who was quoted for the article.
The show is hosted by storyteller, improviser, writer/performer and creative arts psychotherapist Jude Treder-Wolff, whose solo storytelling show Crazytown: my first psychopath was a Featured Selection for the 2012 Chicago and San Francisco Fringe Festivals, selected for the 2013 Midtown International Theater Festival and performed in 2 successful runs at Actors Theater Workshop and at The Pit-The Peoples Improv Theater in New York City.

Crème de la Crème Consigners, the brick-and-mortar luxury consignment shop located at 1039 Kane Concourse in Bay Harbor Islands, Florida, announced today the introduction of their new website, HandbagsMiami.com. Crème de la Crème, owned by Veronica Levine, has been in the luxury consignment business selling preowned handbags from famous brands such as Chanel, Hermes, Gucci and Louis Vuitton since 2007. “We felt it was time to start offering our goods to the general public, not simply those who live near our boutique in Miami,” says Levine. Crème de la Crème started out of Levine’s home in 2007 and attracts clients from around the world. Levine believes HandbagsMiami.com will be much like Fashionphile.com, snobswap.com, vaunte.com, shop-hers.com and Malleries.com. We have the same goods as the luxury consignment stores so we decided to make a huge push into the world wide web”, said Levine. “The main difference between us and the other guys is that we will give the consignor a price up-front,” Levine said. The company will be using Google Adwords, Bing Ads, Yahoo Ads and some organic search techniques to get the word out about their new website.
For more information about Crème de la Crème Consigners and HandbagsMiami.com or to sell, cosign or purchase luxury goods, please visit HandbagsMiami.com or call 305-763-8005.

Bret Saberhagen’s Make A Difference Foundation (MAD) has made a generous contribution to Marillac. The proceeds are a direct result of the “Party Like It’s 1985” event that occurred during the Kansas City Royals World Series run. The event included a raffle, autographs and auction items that benefited Saberhagen’s foundation.
The Make A Difference Foundation’s mission is to encourage and stimulate philanthropy for the education, cultural growth, recreational opportunity, and well-being of children.
The Make A Difference Foundation seeks out programs that place an emphasis on reaching youth and enabling them to interact in non-confrontational settings with the goal of giving young people the tools to become self-reliant, self-confident and healthy individuals.
“I am pleased that Make A Difference can help out a top-notch organization like Marillac, who has been instrumental with assisting children’s needs for years,” Saberhagen said. “The Make A Difference Foundation strives to enrich children’s lives, and I am glad we can back an organization with similar ideals.”
Marillac strives to enhance the lives of children, adolescents and their families by providing a continuum of quality care to advance mental health care advocacy.
“The Make a Difference Foundation’s generous contribution, especially during the holiday season, will enable Marillac to serve additional youth and families and provide hope for a brighter tomorrow. We are honored to be a recipient of the Foundation’s generosity,” said Lynn Lemke, President/CEO of Marillac.
Marillac provides leading-edge treatment and care 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Marillac is located in Overland Park, on a 17-acre campus, which is the only one of its kind in Johnson County, Kansas.

Schizoaffective disorder, which combines elements of bipolar, such as mania and depression, with elements of schizophrenia, including paranoia and delusions, is a mental illness affecting approximately .2% of the US population. In Icarus Redeemed: A Schizoaffective Story, GH Francis explores three manic episodes, resulting in hospitalizations in numerous area facilities, including Shepherd Pratt and Laurel Regional Hospital.
The author’s intent is to give hope to those living with the disorder as well as their loved ones. According to GH Francis, “It’s not an easy disorder to live with, but I’ve learned to manage it extremely well. Writing the book was a cathartic experience that purged long-buried fears and embarrassments. I hope that it will reach a wide audience, especially those experiencing the disorder in some way, because I feel it gives hope to situations that often seem hopeless, and helps people understand that it can be managed, and that the dream of a normal life is not lost upon diagnosis. The new year is the perfect time for change, and I want this book to signify the start of a new life for those living through schizoaffective disorder.”
The book is an extremely open telling of the author’s experiences that occurred primarily in the Baltimore area, but extend as far as Kansas and Arizona, during a seven-year period. When asked why he chose to publish online, the author stated, “I just want to get it out there for now, but print publication is on my list of things to do, and I hope some initial success online will help that come to fruition.”
The book can be downloaded in eBook form or read online at icarusredeemed.com for $ 9.99.
