Loro Parque Foundation contributes to the successful recovery of the Yellow-eared Parrot in Colombia

The population of these endangered birds has reached record numbers in the wild thanks to the financial support of the Foundation

Years of research into habitat use, diet, distribution, reproductive behaviour provided a solid foundation on the threats to the species and the wax palm, thus enabling a global conservation plan.”

— Rafael Zamora, Scientific Director of Loro Parque Fundación

PUERTO DE LA CRUZ, SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, SPAIN, January 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Although more than 8,000 kilometres separate the Canary Islands from Colombia, the Yellow-eared Parrot has a vital link with the Archipelago: the conservation work carried out by The Loro Parque Foundation to protect the species, which has contributed to its successful recovery.

The participation of the Foundation in the project to save the Yellow-eared Parrot, together with the ProAves Foundation of Colombia, has been fundamental in the achievement that today the wild population of these birds has multiplied and has reached record numbers. The story that has marked their survival began in the mid-1990s, when the Loro Parque Foundation supported the protection of the last 20 birds in Ecuador. In 1988 they had disappeared and it was feared that the species had become completely extinct; however, in the same year the Ognorhynchus project began with the aim of ensuring the survival of the species and its habitat in the Colombian Andes.

After a year-long search, a population of 81 individuals was found in the central Andes, in the community of Roncesvalles, whilst in January 2001 a second population of 63 individuals appeared in the foothills of the western Andes in Jardín, in the Department of Antioquia. In the years since the collaboration began, the Foundation has been the principal architect of an initiative that may become the most successful in all of South America. And, in fact, such has been the recovery rate that in 2010 the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) reduced the Yellow-eared Parrot's threat category from ‘critically endangered’ to ‘endangered’.

This animal has a close relationship with wax palms, Colombia's national tree, also threatened by cattle grazing and by its indiscriminate use in the celebration of Palm Sunday. Years of research into habitat use, diet, distribution, and reproductive behaviour have provided a solid foundation on the threats to the species and the wax palm, thus enabling a global conservation action plan.

Among the different initiatives implemented within the framework of this project, they were also able to count on the collaboration of the Vatican. In spite of the roots of this religious tradition, the close collaboration of the Church and a good educational programme have made it possible for everyone to use other alternatives today.

Physically Augmented Virtual Healthcare Visits with RemoteRx Telemedicine Dispenser Platform by Real Time Touch (TM)

Remote Controlled Rx Dispenser

Remote Caregivers Release Medications

Home Based Clinical Trials

Digital Health Startup, Real Time Touch releases 4 new videos on the benefits and use cases of its RemoteRx telemedicine platform

Real Time Touch Founder and Inventor seeks to Physically Augment Global Virtual Healthcare Visits with RTT's RemoteRx Telemedicine Dispenser Platform”

— Craig Linden

ALPINE, CA, UNITED STATES, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Alpine, Jan. 11, 2019 — The new videos envision four use cases for RemoteRx, Real Time Touch's planned remote medication release dispensers and platform with advanced IoT hardware, cloud and sensor capabilities. Real Time Touch is backed by Real Time Touch's patent and pending patents. View the Real Time Touch website for more product information: https://www.realtimetouch.com.

Helping Seniors – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHhTkEQCorc

Seniors cherish their independence yet are frequently forced into assisted living homes when they forget to take their medications or take too much. Now there's new hope for seniors to retain their independence longer. Seniors will visit with caregivers who will remotely release their scheduled medications, monitor their vitals and access their general status during the virtual visits. The Real Time Touch platform is envisioned to be integrated into existing virtual health and 24/7 monitoring systems. This will fast-track the healthcare process for everyone from pharmaceutical, insurance to digital health companies and all healthcare professionals.

Reducing Hospital Readmissionshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXkrDXk5rmo

Patients are often released shortly after their hospitalization and require follow-up and frequent doctor or caregiver interaction. One possible solution is being developed by Real Time Touch: Remote release of critical medications during virtual nurse-to-patient interactions to help home-based patients stay home while they recover. Caregivers can monitor vital signs remotely and verify the correct medication is taken at at the prescribed time. Healthcare providers can check the medication adherence reports and be automatically notified of any difficulties.

Reducing Opioid Dependencehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OegPSItsfwM

Potent drugs are effective and essential for millions that suffer from severe pain. However, they come with a danger of overuse and dependence. Real Time Touch believes that its patented platform and remote controlled treatment and medication release vaults could provide one solution. The advanced Remote Rx design is envisioned to include multi-level user/caregiver alerts, AI coaching, voice activation, gesture recognition, biomarkers, highest-grade HIPAA-compliant security, AR and Augmented Virtual Reality (AVR). Test medications could be released by the clinical trial clinician while video conferencing with the trial patients in their homes.

Decentralizing Clinical Trialshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYSoNX6aDbw

With Real Time Touch's decentralized clinical trials scenario, medication adherence would be monitored in real-time and combined with vitals data for faster results, effectiveness, scientific research and monitoring patient well-being. When applied and approved by the FDA, clinical trial patients' test medications (pro-packs, pouches, patches, injectables, etc.) will be remotely released, verified and recorded via RTT's exclusive home-based IoT locked dispensers while video visiting with their clinicians and/or via AI assist, or automatic release. Clinical trial sponsors, advisors, doctors, nurses, caregivers and pharmacists can have varying levels of access to key data on demand in real-time or scheduled intervals.

Real Time Touch is actively seeking partners to assist in the development and to obtain FDA approvals of the initial four use cases set forth in these 4 new videos. Contact: Craig Linden, Founder Email: clinden@RealTimeTouch.com website — https://www.realtimetouch.com

Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael Discusses Cosmetic Surgery

Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael

CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND, USA, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Deciding when to get cosmetic surgery can be a life-altering decision. Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael offers tips on knowing when it’s time to get facial procedures and the importance of scheduling a consultation.

Before getting any type of cosmetic surgery, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael always recommends making a private consultation to discuss any concerns and the type of surgery you are considering. With almost 20 years of experience, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael is ready to help you become the best version of yourself.

With a dedicated staff focused on making your visit and surgery with Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael, a relaxing, confident and holistic one, we guarantee that you will leave feeling satisfied and refreshed with the procedures and results performed by Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael.

By offering numerous types of cosmetic surgery and cosmetic enhancement options, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael can help patients revive the natural beauty of their skin, helping them to feel younger and ultimately helping patients to become a much healthier version of themselves. Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael skillfully understands with each patient’s needs, helps each patient improve their skin integrity, while helping each patient feel younger at the same time.

Patients that often get a facelift, will be great candidates for a neck lift procedure. The neck lift procedure smooths the skin and the contours of the neck. By using precise surgical techniques developed over his decades of practice, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael will carefully remove the excess skin on the neck and tighten the muscles to create a smoother appearance overall, adding youth to your neckline.

Facial implants are another common surgery performed that can include such implants as chin and cheek, that will enhance the bone structure and create symmetry between the facial features. A chin implant can be used to define the chin while cheek implants add contour to a narrow-looking face, bringing balance. Implants are often used in conjunction with other facial cosmetic surgery procedures, dermal fillers and fat transfer for superior aesthetic balance.

Another common facial procedure Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael performs is Scar revision surgery. Scar revision surgery is a surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of your scars, especially on or around the face. Although scar tissue is permanent, scar revision surgery can make your scars much less noticeable. Depending on the severity of the scarring, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael can utilize a variety of scar revision techniques in combination with laser treatments, injections, or skin grafts to smooth the scar and reduce visibility.

Before getting any cosmetic procedure, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael strongly encourages every patient to schedule a private consultation to discuss next steps with him to ensure that you have the best experience possible.

Transgender Patients Recommend Jupiter FL Plastic Surgeon for Facial Feminization Surgery

Dr. Mardirossian at Mardirossian Facial Aesthetics in Jupiter comes highly recommended as one of the nation’s top providers of facial feminization procedures.

JUPITER, FL, USA, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Though facial feminization surgery procedures have been around for decades, they have become more popular in recent years. More transgender women than ever before seek trained medical professionals to assist them in their journeys. Dr. Vartan Mardirossian and his team at Palm Beach Plastics, located in Jupiter FL, provides numerous facial feminization procedures each year and comes highly recommended.

The Differences between the Male and Female Face

Cisgender men and women have noticeable differences when it comes to their facial structure and features. For example, men tend to have broader foreheads, squarer foreheads, more prominent browbones, and thinner lips; women tend to have smaller features, higher cheekbones, and fuller lips. For transgender women in the process of realizing their true selves through hormone treatments and surgical procedures, facial feminization is an artform. Though anyone can learn to recognize the differences between the male and female face with time, there are very few people in the entire world who can successfully feminize once male features to create a beautiful and soft female face.

Why People Choose Dr. Mardirossian

Dr. Mardirossian is double-board certified in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as in head and neck surgery. He graduated from Italy’s University of Padua Summa cum Laude in 2000, went on to perform research at MIT, and currently serves as the Assistant Professor of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology at the Florida Atlantic University. As a result of his research and time spent teaching, Dr. Mardirossian has performed numerous studies on a variety of important topics having to do with facial plastic surgery – including facial feminization.

Outstanding Reviews

Though Dr. Mardirossian performs a variety of procedures for his patients, including everything from standard in-office procedures like laser resurfacing to complex surgical facial reconstruction, his talent lies in facial feminization surgery. He has a unique ability to help his patients understand the differences between male and female anatomy, then recommend procedures that can help those patients achieve the feminine look they desire. Through surgeries like tracheal shaves to reduce the size of the Adam’s apple, chin shaves and implants, forehead surgery, and even hair restoration, Dr. Mardirossian’s goal is to help his patients realize their true feminine selves and feel confident about the image looking back at them in the mirror.

If you are interested in learning more about facial feminization surgery, Dr. Mardirossian’s approach to FFS, or the team at Palm Beach Plastics, you can visit the FFS Surgery section of their website which is dedicated to providing information about each procedure. To schedule a consultation, call (561)624-0900 or fill out the short contact form on the website.

About Dr. Mardirossian and Palm Beach Plastics: Dr. Mardirossian is a double-board certified plastic surgeon, and when he is not changing his patients’ lives for the better in his office or the operating room, he is speaking to students at Florida universities or heading up important research to drive the future of facial plastic surgery forward. His unique and caring approach to FFS has quickly made him one of the most respected and talented plastic surgeons in the world today.

BriefBuy.com online men’s underwear store offers new products in advanced, more-comfortable-than-cotton fabrics.

BriefBuy Cool Cloze Men’s Underwear

BriefBuy.com introduces new types of men’s Bamboo Silk underwear; an innovative lightweight fabric that is softer, cooler and wicks moisture better than cotton.

If you’re picturing tough stalky plants that Pandas eat, think again. Material sourced from Bamboo is super soft and silky on the skin”

— Michael Alexander Krzyston

HINSDALE, ILLINOIS, USA, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — BriefBuy.com is an online men’s underwear store that goes beyond the expected by offering not just the traditional, but also modern options in men’s underwear.
The main advance in the modern products offered by Brief Buy comes from soft, comfortable innovative fabrics, like Bamboo Silk, which is a rayon fabric manufactured from Bamboo. Many people are surprised by this since they immediately picture a tough, stalky plant that Pandas eat, but reality is that material sourced from Bamboo is super soft and silky on the skin, and that’s why it’s called Bamboo Silk. Bamboo Silk is actually ideal for men’s underwear because it has many advantages over cotton.

Softer and More Luxurious. Bamboo Silk is so soft and luxurious that it’s becoming more and more popular for use in high end products that go next to skin, like luxury sheets, towels and even baby clothes.

Lighter Weight and Ultra-Breathable. Bamboo Silk is lighter weight and more air permeating than cotton which makes it cooler, less bulky and smooth under clothes.

Better Moisture Management. Cotton is breathable, but it holds moisture, whereas Bamboo Silk wicks moisture away from skin and is quicker drying than cotton, so Bamboo Silk stays drier for a more comfortable fit.

Four-way stretch vs. 2-way Stretch of Cotton. Bamboo Silk has a 4-way, all-way stretch so it is able to more comfortably hug contours and give a personalized fit. This also makes Bamboo Silk more flexible, so it moves more easily and doesn’t pinch or bind, which makes it more comfortable than cotton.

Comfortable for any Occasion. Silk (spun by Silkworms) is the most luxurious fabric of all, and it feels great on the skin, but it’s not very breathable, so it’s not a good underwear option for every day, all day wear. Soft and luxurious Bamboo Silk feels great on the skin, is comfortable all day, breathes and it’s more affordable than silk as well.

Russell Horning aka Backpack Kid Sends Autographed Photo to 10-Year-Old Fan Who Lost Leg

Russell Horning backpack kid

LAWRENCEVILLE, GEORGIA, USA, January 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Russell Horning, recognized around the world as “Backpack Kid,” uses his fame to boost awareness of charities and positive causes, and he regularly gives back to his community. Even with international fame, however, Backpack Kid is mindful to reach out to a fan in need as he recently did for a 10-year-old boy who lost his leg.

Russell Horning has danced for years, creating his own wacky style and posting his moves to social media platforms like YouTube and Instagram. He does it for fun and because he loves to dance, so it’s not a big deal to him. But to the rest of the world, Backpack is a viral sensation and his popular dance “the Floss” might be the catchiest choreography since “Single Ladies” swept the internet. It’s only in the last couple of years that Backpack Kid’s iconic dances have gone from being shared between a handful of family members and friends to gaining around 50 million online views in a single year.

You may recognize Backpack Kid from his legendary SNL performance alongside pop superstar Katy Perry. Or maybe you’d recognize his “floss” moves from the millions of people trying it out, whether in online video form or in person. His dance has become so famous that it’s been implemented into one of the most successful cross-platform games of all time, Fortnite.

There’s no denying that 17-year old Russell Horning is both famous and busy with his own schedule, yet he still carves out time to give back to the community and support his fans.
In the past, he’s surprised kids at elementary schools in need with donations of backpacks and school supplies and asked them up to perform the Floss dance alongside him. He’s also appeared at Zumba conferences and other events as a guest speaker, proving that his focus is on bringing people together.

He’s partnered with major outreach programs and has worked with the Lawrenceville Housing Authority, Families of Children Under Stress (FOCUS), and Gwinnett County Public schools in different capacities.

And when he hears news that a fan of his “flossing” moves is suffering, he’s quick to step in with encouragement. Recently, a 10-year-old Backpack Kid fan suffered an injury that required the amputation of his leg below the knee. Gavin, who suffered the injury, spent weeks in the hospital but is now home and continues his recovery in earnest. And he has the encouragement of Backpack Kid to help him through the tough times.

Gavin was pleased to know that Backpack Kid not only heard about his ordeal, but cared enough to send an autographed photo his way. It’s just one of the many ways Russell Horning encourages togetherness and solidarity, even between a rising star and a fan in need.
