Help kiss goodbye to breast cancer
Early detection is vital... be breast aware and show your breasts some TLC: Touch, Look, Check. This means being aware of what is normal for you and looking out for any unusual changes. Get anything unusual checked out by your doctor straightaway. Spread the word: Six women are diagnosed every day in Ireland send our video message to at least six of your friends and ask them to share it with six more and so on. In this way we can raise awareness and show our support of women who are facing breast cancer on a daily basis.

Church Capital Campaign Materials for Land, Buildings, Missions, Ministries, Debt Relief
Please visit https://www.churchfundraisingmaterials.com/church-capital-campaign/ for more information on Church Fundraising Materials and Church Capital Campaign Design and Themes, or you may email us at info (at) churchfundraisingmaterials.com or call (678) 820-3177. When churches engage with us instead of trying to do a self-led campaign using their own in-house designers or even a local freelancer, Church Fundraising Materials, a subsidiary of Catalyst Faithworks, is able to offer you sample materials that you can look at with incredible written content on the inside, whether it's the key statement or trifold brochures that help donors understand how to free up money. We have so many resources having done hundreds of campaigns that we can provide to the church and really help them get from point A to point Z much quicker than a freelancer who's never even done it before. We are a boutique agency and every client that calls us engages with me, first as the owner and the founder, and the one who developed this idea of using visuals first to help them and their leadership team gain consensus so they stay with me from that point all the way through the design process. At every step of the way, I'm leading you rather than you trying to find me to see if I'm going to do the next thing. What we really enjoy about working with churches, ministries and private schools is to get the opportunity to build a relationship with the key person I'm usually going to be communicating with. And if you've ever been a part of a campaign on the leadership side, you know that is one of the biggest responsibilities. We know it's a huge burden. Many times when I get the call from that person, they're a bit overwhelmed by the time I even pick up the phone call. So my goal primarily before it's to the church, school or ministry is to one person, and in the team that they represent, I do make it easy. In fact, I tell them, take a deep breath. This is going to be a fun process. You're actually going to enjoy this and at the end of the day, you might think about doing it a second time. So whether your vision needs funding for land, buildings, increased annual funds, missions, community ministry or even debt relief, we can help create compelling communications that better reach your constituents.

Patient engagement in The Metastatic Breast Cancer Project
Dr Wagle speaks with ecancertv at ASCO 2016 about The Metastatic Breast Cancer Project, an online outreach project connecting advocacy groups, social media and more than 2000 patients. About 10% of breast cancer patients have metastatic breast cancer when first diagnosed, and as many as one third of all patients will develop metastatic breast cancer at some point, but only a small fraction are treated at centres which carry out research on tumour samples. In signing up through the website, patients are asked questions about their cancer and treatments, and can give consent to have researchers obtain their medical records and collect specimens, of stored tumour samples and using a mailed collection kit to provide DNA samples. With over 2,000 patients engaging with the site, Dr Wagle describes the value of upstream public dialogue in fostering stronger relations between researchers, primary care providers and patients.

Why Do People Reject Good Science?
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) 0:30 - Introduction 6:00 - Start of Presentation - Eugenie C. Scott, PhD 1:06:15 - Q & A Scientists are often puzzled when members of the public reject what we consider to be well-founded explanations. They can’t understand why the presentation of scientific data and theory doesn’t suffice to convince others of the validity of “controversial” topics like evolution and climate change. Eugenie Scott, Founding Executive Director, National Center for Science Education, highlights the importance of ideology in shaping what scientific conclusions are considered reliable and acceptable. This research is quite relevant to the evolution wars and the opposition to climate change, and to other questions of the rejection of empirical evidence. Recorded on 10/03/2018.

entrepreneurship 101, understanding entrepreneurship basics and fundamentals
entrepreneurship 101, understanding entrepreneurship basics and fundamentals. An entrepreneur is someone who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise. An entrepreneur is an agent of change. Entrepreneurship is the process of discovering new ways of combining resources. When the market value generated by this new combination of resources is greater than the market value these resources can generate elsewhere individually or in some other combination, the entrepreneur makes a profit. An entrepreneur who takes the resources necessary to produce a pair of jeans that can be sold for thirty dollars and instead turns them into a denim backpack that sells for fifty dollars will earn a profit by increasing the value those resources create. This comparison is possible because in competitive resource markets, an entrepreneur’s costs of production are determined by the prices required to bid the necessary resources away from alternative uses. Those prices will be equal to the value that the resources could create in their next-best alternate uses. Because the price of purchasing resources measures this opportunity cost— the value of the forgone alternatives—the profit entrepreneurs make reflects the amount by which they have increased the value generated by the resources under their control.

Are You In Avon & Would Love To Get Ideas & Tips For Your Business, Then Join Our Open Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/24738... Here Is A Little Bit Of My Story...... I was introduced to network marketing in 1999 after meeting my husband, Gary. Our first meeting was a hilarious one. We first met at the Copacabana, an infamous nightclub in New York City. When Gary first approached me, he gave me his business card trying to prospect me for his business. Even though I did not give him my number, I called him back and we set up a meeting a couple of days later where he picked me up after work. I worked for a busy shoe store in the fashion district of New York City and I was totally wiped out from a long day at work. He asked me if I would mind going over to his office. I agreed. We headed to a busy office, where I sat in a room with about twenty other people. We sat through a business presentation for a company I had never heard of. When it was over, I was kind of drawn back because I had never before heard of the type of information that was presented. That is when I realized that there had to be something more out there for me. Here I was, a 22-year-old, single mother of one at the time. I was going to college full time and working a full-time job. I felt as if I were going nowhere fast. Gary invited me to a Saturday event and we drove a couple of hours to get there. I could not understand why this event was going to be so long. Sitting at the day-long training, I kept wondering what I was doing there. Everything changed for me when a couple went on stage to address the audience. The wife explained how the company had changed their lives so much and how she could stay home with her children without having to work a full-time job. I realized then that I was killing myself working and going to college full time—and for what? I was missing my son's first years of life because I had no time off. I was heading down a path that had not worked for either of my parents. I finally decided to join my husband, Gary to work together in our current company to help change our family and other family's destiny for generations to come!! The topics and teachings of this blog comes from what we've learned from our experience of over 16 years in network marketing. We have used these same techniques when we first joined our current company in 2008 and after just 3 years in the company we made the highest level in leadership. Each year since joining our current company, we have both DOUBLED our team and income EACH YEAR!!! Because of our successes in our current company, we've been asked to speak at Leadership events throughout the United States plus enjoy trips we've earned trips to places such as Orlando, Florida, an Alaskan cruise, New Orleans and most recently Oahu, Hawaii. We are also published co-authors of the book "A View From The Top" and have created several resources for men and women who are looking to also create a successful work from home which can be found in the My Products tab of http://www.LynetteBledsoe.com looking for an avon rep avon anew avon distanzia avon steins avon breast cancer walk in new york avon canada login avon coupon codes avon girls avon newsletter avon representatives in new york avon catalog avon clothes catalog old avon bottles value of avon bottles avon antiques avon blog avon high school avon indiana avon jewelry avon lady avon makeup avon mascara avon representatives order online avon representatives order online Avon Opportunity Become an Avon Representative why AVON Join Avon only $10 Join AVON Today Why You Should NOT Become An AVON Representative 10 reasons to not become an avon rep avon login avon products avon cosmetics avon collectibles selling avon online avon representative avon skin so soft avon beauty center avon books avon collectables avon breast cancer walk avon avon login avon cosmetics avon products avon collectibles avon collectables avon coupon code avon skin so soft avon books becoming avon representative Shop avon online local avon representative national avon recruiter become an avon representative avon breast cancer avon tires vintage avon avon coupons avon logo avon order entry avon representatives online ordering avon walk for breast cancer avon representative websites discontinued avon products your avon avon logos sell avon avon erep avon fashions avon free shipping gary Bledsoe lynette Bledsoe whoisgarybledsoe sellingbeautyiseasy garyshomebusiness fourminutevideo Bledsoe gary Bledsoe lynette Who is gary Bledsoe Selling beauty is easy Gary's home business http://youtu.be/69VvkZzaQ20

New York City | Wikipedia audio article
This is an audio version of the Wikipedia Article: New York City Listening is a more natural way of learning, when compared to reading. Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping! If you are planning to listen a lot, you could try using a bone conduction headphone, or a standard speaker instead of an earphone. You can find other Wikipedia audio articles too at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuKfABj2eGyjH3ntPxp4YeQ In case you don't find one that you were looking for, put a comment. This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= The City of New York, often called New York City (NYC) or simply New York (NY), is the most populous city in the United States. With an estimated 2017 population of 8,622,698 distributed over a land area of about 302.6 square miles (784 km2), New York City is also the most densely populated major city in the United States. Located at the southern tip of the state of New York, the city is the center of the New York metropolitan area, the largest metropolitan area in the world by urban landmass and one of the world's most populous megacities, with an estimated 20,320,876 people in its 2017 Metropolitan Statistical Area and 23,876,155 residents in its Combined Statistical Area. A global power city, New York City has been described uniquely as the cultural, financial, and media capital of the world, and exerts a significant impact upon commerce, entertainment, research, technology, education, politics, tourism, art, fashion, and sports. The city's fast pace has inspired the term New York minute. Home to the headquarters of the United Nations, New York is an important center for international diplomacy.Situated on one of the world's largest natural harbors, New York City consists of five boroughs, each of which is a separate county of the State of New York. The five boroughs – Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island – were consolidated into a single city in 1898. The city and its metropolitan area constitute the premier gateway for legal immigration to the United States. As many as 800 languages are spoken in New York, making it the most linguistically diverse city in the world. New York City is home to more than 3.2 million residents born outside the United States, the largest foreign-born population of any city in the world. In 2017, the New York metropolitan area produced a gross metropolitan product (GMP) of US$1.73 trillion. If greater New York City were a sovereign state, it would have the 12th highest GDP in the world.New York City traces its origins to a trading post founded by colonists from the Dutch Republic in 1624 on Lower Manhattan; the post was named New Amsterdam in 1626. The city and its surroundings came under English control in 1664 and were renamed New York after King Charles II of England granted the lands to his brother, the Duke of York. New York served as the capital of the United States from 1785 until 1790. It has been the country's largest city since 1790. The Statue of Liberty greeted millions of immigrants as they came to the Americas by ship in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and is a world symbol of the United States and its ideals of liberty and peace. In the 21st century, New York has emerged as a global node of creativity and entrepreneurship, social tolerance, and environmental sustainability, and as a symbol of freedom and cultural diversity.Many districts and landmarks in New York City are well known, with the city having three of the world's ten most visited tourist attractions in 2013 and receiving a record 62.8 million tourists in 2017. Several sources have ranked New York the most photographed city in the world. Times Square, iconic as the world's "heart" and its "Crossroads", is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway Theater District, one of the world's busiest pedestrian intersections, and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. The names of many of the city's landmarks, skyscrapers, and parks are known around the world. Manhattan's real estate market is among the most expensive in the world. New York is home to the largest ethnic Chinese population outside of Asia, with multiple signature Chinatowns developing across the city. Providing continuous 24/7 service, the New York City Subway is the largest single-operator rapid transit system worldwide, with 472 rail stations. Over 120 colleges and universities are located in New York City, including Columbia University, New York University, and Rockefeller University, which ha ...

My Friend Irma: Lucky Couple Contest / The Book Crook / The Lonely Hearts Club
My Friend Irma, created by writer-director-producer Cy Howard, is a top-rated, long-run radio situation comedy, so popular in the late 1940s that its success escalated to films, television, a comic strip and a comic book, while Howard scored with another radio comedy hit, Life with Luigi. Marie Wilson portrayed the title character, Irma Peterson, on radio, in two films and a television series. The radio series was broadcast from April 11, 1947 to August 23, 1954. Dependable, level-headed Jane Stacy (Cathy Lewis, Diana Lynn) began each weekly radio program by narrating a misadventure of her innocent, bewildered roommate, Irma, a dim-bulb stenographer from Minnesota. The two central characters were in their mid-twenties. Irma had her 25th birthday in one episode; she was born on May 5. After the two met in the first episode, they lived together in an apartment rented from their Irish landlady, Mrs. O'Reilly (Jane Morgan, Gloria Gordon). Irma's boyfriend Al (John Brown) was a deadbeat, barely on the right side of the law, who had not held a job in years. Only someone like Irma could love Al, whose nickname for Irma was "Chicken". Al had many crazy get-rich-quick schemes, which never worked. Al planned to marry Irma at some future date so she could support him. Professor Kropotkin (Hans Conried), the Russian violinist at the Princess Burlesque theater, lived upstairs. He greeted Jane and Irma with remarks like, "My two little bunnies with one being an Easter bunny and the other being Bugs Bunny." The Professor insulted Mrs. O'Reilly, complained about his room and reluctantly became O'Reilly's love interest in an effort to make her forget his back rent. Irma worked for the lawyer, Mr. Clyde (Alan Reed). She had such an odd filing system that once when Clyde fired her, he had to hire her back again because he couldn't find anything. Useless at dictation, Irma mangled whatever Clyde dictated. Asked how long she had been with Clyde, Irma said, "When I first went to work with him he had curly black hair, then it got grey, and now it's snow white. I guess I've been with him about six months." Irma became less bright as the program evolved. She also developed a tendency to whine or cry whenever something went wrong, which was at least once every show. Jane had a romantic inclination for her boss, millionaire Richard Rhinelander (Leif Erickson), but he had no real interest in her. Another actor in the show was Bea Benaderet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Friend_Irma_%28radio-TV%29 Katherine Elisabeth Wilson (August 19, 1916 -- November 23, 1972), better known by her stage name, Marie Wilson, was an American radio, film, and television actress. She may be best remembered as the title character in My Friend Irma. Born in Anaheim, California, Wilson began her career in New York City as a dancer on the Broadway stage. She gained national prominence with My Friend Irma on radio, television and film. The show made her a star but typecast her almost interminably as the quintessential dumb blonde, which she played in numerous comedies and in Ken Murray's famous Hollywood "Blackouts". During World War II, she was a volunteer performer at the Hollywood Canteen. She was also a popular wartime pin-up. Wilson's performance in Satan Met a Lady, the second film adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's detective novel The Maltese Falcon, is a virtual template for Marilyn Monroe's later onscreen persona. Wilson appeared in more than 40 films and was a guest on The Ed Sullivan Show on four occasions. She was a television performer during the 1960s, working until her untimely death. Wilson's talents have been recognized with three stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame: for radio at 6301 Hollywood Boulevard, for television at 6765 Hollywood Boulevard and for movies at 6601 Hollywood Boulevard. Wilson married four times: Nick Grinde (early 1930s), LA golf pro Bob Stevens (1938--39), Allan Nixon (1942--50) and Robert Fallon (1951--72). She died of cancer in 1972 at age 56 and was interred in the Columbarium of Remembrance at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Hollywood Hills. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marie_Wilson_%28American_actress%29
