Posted by Lindsay Dicks on Nov 26th, 2008

SuperSlow Zone® San Jose adds high-performance line of natural products to optimize the results of SuperSlow® strength training.

San Jose, Calif. – November 26, 2008 – The SuperSlow Zone® has done it again.  The concept that revolutionized convenience and effectiveness in strength training through two, twenty-minute workouts has added a high-performance line of natural products from Univera LifeSciences® to give SuperSlow Zone® clients even greater results.

 Univera® products were selected to ensure that SuperSlow Zone® clients achieve maximum results in minimum time.  A select set of Univera® products increase the body’s ability to repair itself, optimizing SuperSlow Zone® workouts so clients optimize their muscle, strength, metabolism, focus, joint health and overall energy levels.  In short, it gives them more of what they came to the SuperSlow Zone® for in the first place.

 Marie Ortiz, owner of SuperSlow Zone® San Jose, said, “The Univera® products are a wonderful complement to the SuperSlow workout, and our clients’ needs.  From enabling a more efficient workout, to addressing joint issues, or simply providing a platform for healthier living, the quality of Univera’s® line is proven.  It is no wonder SuperSlow® supports them!”

“I found Univera® products after reading the book The Metabolic Plan by Steven Cherniske, M.S.  It was the most scientifically-grounded book, in nutrition and focused on the ‘value of muscle‘ in our daily living that I had ever read.  Getting one’s metabolism right and their muscle mass up are the foundation for longevity,” said Madeline Ross, CEO of the SuperSlow Zone® Corporate.

“I was so impressed with the comprehensive nature of his work that I flew out to meet Univera® chief science officer, Stephen Cherniske, to learn about his products,” Ross said. “Then the world of Univera® opened, and it was unavoidable – we needed to offer these products to our clients.  As we age, we have to give our body the best natural compounds available to maximize our strength training efforts.  Univera® does this… because our clients say so.”

 Univera® products are plant-based and are developed in two full-scale DNA genomics and proteomics labs.  This level of science, in natural products, is unheard of today.  In addition to research and development, the parent company fully integrates a “farm to family” approach whereby they grow and harvest their raw materials in five countries, manufacture at a pharmacological level, and distribute throughout North America and Korea. 

Univera® products enable our clients’ bodies to naturally flip on its ability to regenerate at the DNA level, thus acting as both insurance for and a potentiator of their SuperSlow Zone® workout and results.

 Univera® products help the body uncharacteristically repair itself at levels of a much younger person.   The results speak for themselves.  “Once they add Univera® products to their workout, they’re hooked,” Ross said.

 SuperSlow® has been the leading strength training protocol for more than 26 distinguished years.  The SuperSlow® method is an expert-supervised, 20-minute, twice-a-week, strength training protocol that has proven to be the safest, most efficient and effective form of strength training available. SuperSlow Zone® clients are men and women of all ages who seek a professional health and exercise service that delivers maximum results in a minimum amount of time.

Owner of Larry’s Cigars, Larry Good turns to CelebritySites™, an online marketing and search engine optimization firm, to redesign the web presence of www.LarrysCigars.com.

Community Banks Will Play Crucial Role in Economic Recovery, Restoring Trust and Capital Flow, Says Longtime Area Banker

Posted by Lindsay Dicks on Nov 21st, 2008

ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. – November, 21, 2008 -Community banks will play the most important role in America’s economic recovery over the next five years, helping to restore public trust in American financial institutions and the flow of capital in public commerce. 

That’s the opinion of longtime Central Florida banker and business leader Geof Longstaff, who earned his MBA Degree from the Crummer Graduate School of Business at Rollins College in Winter Park and currently serves as chairman of Mercantile Commercial Capital, LLC, in Altamonte Springs. 

“Small community banks have been a part of the fabric of the American financial system for decades,” said Longstaff, an instructor at the Louisiana State University Graduate School of Banking. “They are run by local citizens who have a stake in the local community,” Longstaff explained.

 According to the Independent Community Bankers of America, there are nearly 8,500 community banks in the U.S. whose assets range from less than $10 million to a few billion dollars. Where many of the nation’s largest banks place a priority on serving large corporations, community banks focus attention on the needs of local families, businesses, and farmers. 

“Typically, community banks consider such indicators as character, family history and discretionary spending in making loans,” Longstaff said. “They channel most of their loans to local neighborhoods where their depositors live and work, and the end result is that community banks serve as the backbone of the American financial system,” Longstaff said. 

Central Florida community banks saw their share of deposits grow from 15 percent to 20 percent in the two years prior to June 30, 2008, Longstaff added, and since then deposits have risen further as a result of the banking crisis.

 “Community banks don’t have significant investments in subprime loans or deteriorating credit card debt,” Longstaff said. “They aren’t focused on restructuring their balance sheets or waiting for a government bailout,” he added. 

“Because business loan decisions are made locally, community banks are better able to respond quickly and effectively, whereas a large national or regional bank loan approval committee may meet in another state,” he said. 

“Community banks are themselves small businesses,” Longstaff added. “They understand the needs of small business owners. Their core concern is lending to small businesses and farms, not corporate America,” he said.
