You’re Welcome capitalizes on Rachel’s own mental breakdown to help improve every aspect of her readers’ wellbeing.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 19, 2021 / — NeuroCoach, Rachel Kozy, MPH, MBA, is calling out to individuals who feel they can no longer sustain their stress-filled lives: there are life hacks and creative ways to decrease daily stress and improve cognitive performance – and they can be found in her new book, You’re Welcome.

Rachel is a NeuroCoach, humanitarian, and author from Los Angeles, California. After decades of suffering from anxiety, insomnia, and depression, Rachel devoted her life to studying human physiology, cognitive neuroscience, bioenergetics, and public health in search of answers. Rachel’s passion is helping her clients improve every aspect of their physical, cognitive and emotional well-being through her NeuroCoaching practice.

In recent news, Rachel has released her first book, You’re Welcome. You’re Welcome capitalizes on Rachel’s own mental breakdown to help improve every aspect of her readers’ well-being through her own stirring and heartfelt journey. While the book briefly discusses the traditional, yet misinformed, one-size-fits-all approach to mental health, Rachel goes deeper by explaining that individuals are all infinitely different, divine, and unique. According to Rachel, each one of our bodies and minds respond differently to different interventions, meaning we all must assume personal responsibility to understand our own body, mind, and goals.

"It took me a paralyzing mental breakdown, thousands of dollars in experimental therapy, and a decade of intense trial and error for me to master cognitive performance and emotional well-being,” says Rachel. “I certainly don’t want this to be the case for any of my readers, which is why I am sharing my story. I’d like to suggest that you listen to your intuition when reading this book. You don’t have to read this book – or any book – from front to back. Think of this book as a toolkit. I want you to read and apply tools and resources that speak to you and your needs, so you can be inspired to achieve optimal happiness in your life.”

You’re Welcome takes readers through Rachel’s personal journey from breakdown to breakthrough, reflecting, dissecting, and providing solutions for each factor that played a role in her mental breakdown. The book is divided into three main sections: self-care, emotional health, and alternative methods of healing, and is aimed at supporting readers who struggle with their own burnout, exhaustion, brain fog, lack of motivation, and who are looking for ways to simplify their lives.

Irrigation Water Conditioning Opportunities

Learn how technology developed by Dime Water Inc. can help improve the way water is utilized in agricultural irrigation and other commercial applications.

VISTA, CA, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 / — According to the U.S. Department of the Interior USGS division, 70% of all fresh water worldwide is consumed in growing crops. Some countries such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and states like California, Florida and the Dakotas, have higher percentages. With drought conditions predicted in 2021 and 2022 for much of the world and the western US in particular, treatment opportunities for water professionals should be significant.

The problem associated with much of the accessible irrigation water is brackishness that slows or stops water from adequately following the xylems (capillary network) in plants. This results in the need to over water and if not over watered, plants and their nutritional value are significantly reduced. Needless to say, this excess water is subtracted from available supplies for homes and industry.

Historically, the brackishness is countered by continued over watering (until sources are exhausted) or by employing R.O. systems which in addition to high capital and operating costs is counterproductive because of waste streams. Much of the World has found relief by employing magnetic devices especially in Russia, Eastern European countries and Israel where resources are scarce. One of the best university studies is available through Research Gate “Impact of Magnetic Water on Plant Growth” coauthored by Jaime da Silva of Japan and Judit Dobranszki of Debrecan University in Hungary. Typical reported results document water savings in the 10% range which could ease drought conditions by billions of gallons in the US.

All published effectiveness reports on magnetic water treatment for irrigation come up short on the issue of why the process works, which understandably creates skepticism at a professional level. The answer may be found in a recently published research book by Gerald H. Pollack, PhD Engineering titled The Fourth Phase of Water. Numerous and well-documented experiments on the properties of water were carried out by Dr. Pollack and his research assistants at his laboratory at the University of Washington. His work reveals that energy (infrared and EMF) applied to water causes a particular hexagonal structuring of water molecules while simultaneously releasing hydrogen ions that create hydronium (H 3 O) molecules in close proximity water. Further tests in the book postulate enhanced capillary action and a unique look at why this occurs.

We believe that a magnetic field can be the energy that changes the water structure to that described by Dr. Pollack. As an explanation of this phenomenon, think of how an electrical generator works: In its simplest form, an outside energy source such as an engine or a turbine moves a conductor (wire) in an electro magnetic field which results in movement of electrons in the wire which defines electricity. The quantitive expression of this is FARADAY’S LAW or EMF = v x B x L x sin A where:

EMF = Electro Motive (or Magnetic) Force or Volts (V) output

v = the velocity of the conductor in meters/sec. (Velocity is a vector which must include direction as opposed to speed which doesn’t require a directional component.)

B = magnetic field strength in Gauss units as opposed to Tesla units

L = length of conductor in meters

A = the angularity of the conductor relative to the magnetic field which defines velocity vs. speed. It is 90 0 in a pipe configuration with magnets on the circumference as most existing systems are constructed. The sin of 90 0 = 1, so it does not affect the voltage value.

In our math modeling of a system, the outside energy to run the “generator” is the water pump feeding the irrigation line, the wire (conductor) is water which of course is conductive unless it is D.I. or distilled water, the velocity is the result of flow rate, length of conductor is the length from in to out of device and field strength is the result of typically permanent magnets along with their type, quantity and placement. By applying the right-hand rule, the positive pole is on the inlet of the device. Knowing the resistance of the water column within the device by either measurement or using a TDS/CONDUCTIVITY CHART resistance can be determined and using OHM’S LAW V=IR with voltage from above I (amps) can be solved for as I = V/R. Finally, we can determine the energy going into the water which is derived from WATT’S LAW P=VI where P = Power in watts, a universal expression of energy. Through algebraic manipulation of ohms law, P in watts can also be expressed as P = I 2 R. Trial calculations show volts, amps and watts in the milli range.

This presentation is an expression of DC (Direct Current) power. Multiple magnet fields will produce a pulsing DC voltage and by axially changing magnetic field polarization from field to field, AC (Alternating Current) power will be produced. Hopefully this presentation will overcome some of the stigma associated with magnets and provide a plausible explanation for their efficacy in agricultural water applications.

We encourage people in the traditional water conditioning industry to align themselves with one of the many suppliers of agricultural magnetic systems. By offering such devices, we believe many millions of gallons of irrigation water can be diverted to residential and commercial uses which is especially important during drought conditions. For further interesting information on water properties, we recommend purchasing and studying Dr. Pollack’s book.

Plug & Play K-12 Curriculum And Instruction

2018 PISA Test Results

A Solution For Next-Gen K-12 Education

One emerging cost-effective solution … is hiring turnkey providers capable of immediately teaching entire subject categories to augment or replace existing programs.”

— Lawrence Allen

PLANO, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 / — The K-12 landscape is transforming, driven by the urgent need for alternatives to public-school education. This demand, together with the advent of technical innovation, has spurred leading-edge new options in the private school and home-schooling sector, creating a generational opportunity to dramatically improve the way American school children are educated.

Remote learning is a rapidly evolving feature of this transformation. Though recorded video series and interactive websites are great tools, they are only effective when supporting the human touch of a classical curriculum taught by exceptionally talented and motivated teachers. Plus, the cost and complexity of replacing a long-established system such as K-12 education is a daunting challenge.

One emerging, cost-effective solution for home-school co-ops and private schools alike is the concept of Plug & Play curriculum and instruction: hiring turnkey providers capable of immediately teaching entire subject categories to augment or replace existing programs. And companies like Singapore Academy USA℠ are leading just such innovative solutions.

The Singapore school system delivers #1 student scores across the board in standardized global testing (see inset). STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) are Singapore’s strongest subjects and Singapore Academy USA℠ is making both the curriculum and “Live From Singapore” daily instruction from top Singapore teachers available to American families and educational organizations. Once the Plug & Play module is installed into an organization’s overall education plan, Singapore Academy USA℠ executes end-to-end fulfillment of the entire school year’s curriculum plan and live instruction for those subjects. The client — home-school co-ops and private schools — need only provide the physical forum for the students (if in-person learning) and monitor implementation.

The advantages are clear. First and foremost, American students benefit from the world’s best STEM curriculum and live instruction. Second, educational organizations gain nimbleness in scaling up or down based on changing enrollment without being hampered by fixed costs. They also gain instant expertise and knowledge in the subjects taught. And, they can menu-select and test-market specialty classes at no risk to determine student body interest and whether to include the classes long term. All this happens while adding exciting, competitive classes into their overall offering.

Plug & Play solutions help start-ups accelerate their time to market, bypassing hiring and operations complexity. Established organizations reduce costs while quickly incorporating the latest teaching innovations. And best of all, organizations that hire Singapore Academy USA℠ to teach classes will enjoy the service orientation and agility that are fast becoming the hallmarks of next-gen K-12 education. We would love to show you how we can help your organization grow, while reducing costs and, most importantly, help your students improve their STEM scores. Visit: or contact Lawrence Allen at:
for more information.

Singapore Academy USA℠ is an academically focused curriculum and live instruction provider for middle school and high school student families who seek high performance in standardized testing. They help students reach the top of their class their final years of High School and ultimately achieve top university placement. Contact person: Lawrence Allen at:

Third Verdict for Plaintiff Against Bard in IVC Filter Case

Third Verdict for Plaintiff Against Bard in IVC Filter Case; Dallas Attorneys win $3.3M for new plaintiff.

“Bard wants to try cases, so we try cases,” said Martin.”

— Ben Martin

DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 / — Third Verdict for Plaintiff Against Bard in IVC Filter Case

For the third time in less than five weeks, Bard has been hit with a verdict in an IVC filter case. Ben C. Martin of Martin Baughman, Dallas, Texas, reports that the ruling, rendered today in federal court in Madison, Wisconsin, occurred after three days of jury deliberation. The unanimous jury of seven found in favor of plaintiff Natalie Johnson after finding Bard responsible for a defective warning in the case involving a Bard Meridian filter, awarding Johnson 3.3 million dollars.

Johnson, 60, was implanted with the IVC filter in anticipation of a surgery involving her lower extremities. The filter was placed to protect Johnson from a pulmonary embolus. The filter was found to have fractured in 2018 after a CT scan which revealed that one of the tines of the filter had embolized to Ms. Johnson’s right ventricle while another tine had broken and become embedded in the vena cava just above the filter. The filter was removed shortly after it was found to have fractured.

Experts for the defense suggested that the broken parts of the filter were stable and that the chances of any further harm occurring were minimal. However, no guarantee could be made by the defense experts that the remaining pieces would not move. “Bard wants to try cases, so we try cases,” said Martin.

Martin’s firm has had recent success against Bard in IVC filter cases. In the past five weeks Martin Baughman has garnered jury verdicts of $926,000 in Portland and $2.5 million in Dallas, in addition to the latest verdict in Wisconsin. Laura Baughman, co-lead counsel with Martin in the Dallas case, involving a strut to the heart, could not recall another such streak of victories against a device manufacturer in such a short time. “I don’t know if it’s happened or not,” said Baughman. “I really don’t have time to think about it. We have three more trials next month.”

Bard was the subject defendant in an MDL regarding their IVC filter products. That MDL, closed for new filings in 2019, was overseen by Hon. David Campbell, Phoenix, AZ. Bard has been embroiled with issues relating to several of its products in recent years. In addition to its problems with its IVC filter line, it has had other allegations lodged against it for other products, including hernia mesh and transvaginal mesh, both subject to MDL’s at various times.

Prime IV Hydration and Wellness Lehi, UT Location Continues to Receive High Marks From Customers

Customers rave about Prime IV Hydration and Wellness in Lehi, UT.

We are excited to see more and more people in the area enjoying the benefits that IV hydration can have on your mental and physical health.”

— Heidi Neville, owner

LEHI, UT, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2021 / — Customers in the Utah Valley area cannot stop raving about Prime IV Hydration and Wellness in Lehi, UT. This location has earned very high marks from customers for the quality health and wellness solutions that they offer.

“Your body is like a vehicle that, without the right fuel and servicing, is going to start breaking down which is why IV therapy is more important now than ever.'” said Heidi Neville, owner of Prime IV Lehi. “We are excited to see more and more people in the area enjoying the benefits that IV hydration can have on your mental and physical health.”

Many happy members have given the chain’s location in Lehi, UT an impressive 5.0 rating (out of 5.0) and the location has maintained a high standard since its opening. "It is so good to see customers coming in and experiencing the healing effects of IV treatment for the first time," said Heidi Neville. "We get great reviews from first-time customers, but our monthly members seem to benefit the very most from the services. Something that used to be available only in hospitals or a few specialized clinics is now available to all with our trained and medically-supervised staff providing this service."

Here are a few highlights from a growing number of online reviews:

In his 5-star review, Joe R. wrote, “Perfect date night. Yep, you read that right. Took my date here and we both had a wonderful relaxing time that included massage chairs and the most awesome staff you will ever come across. I ended up choosing The Champion IV drip, with an additive, while my date picked out The Glow, with an additive. Neither of us was disappointed. The fact that you can use your HSA account here makes this all the more appealing because it allows a proactive approach to one's own health and wellness. I would recommend this place for anyone who is serious about their wellbeing.”

One first-time visitor, Jeanine, wrote the following about her experience, “New to the experience, it was positive and worth it. The results have been great. I went in feeling run down, and I was directed to a couple of different options for my iv. I appreciated the massage chair, and the next day I woke up feeling energized and better than before.”

"We love reading all of the positive comments about our staff," said Neville. "We strive to work with the best of the best."

IV therapy is medically supervised and growing in popularity. While patience may be a virtue, waiting on things such as your health can seem to take forever. Vitamins and supplements are a popular way to increase our health in a variety of different areas, but the problem is that our bodies only absorb around ten percent of oral vitamin supplements. IV therapy on the other hand provides essential vitamins and nutrients to your body with a 100% absorption rate. Whether you are wanting to lose weight, increase athletic performance, or boost your immunity, IV therapy can get you feeling your best in no time.

Prime IV Hydration & Wellness-Lehi continues to run a $69 introductory special for first-time customers. "If you're new to IV hydration therapy, give us a try," said Neville. "Don’t worry. On your first visit, you’ll receive a free consultation to review your wellness goals free of charge – that and your first IV therapy session while relaxing in our state-of-the-art massage chairs. Come give us a try!"

Prime IV sessions generally last 30-45 minutes and are safe for all ages. There is no recovery time or need to wait afterward, so you are good to get on with your day while feeling your best. With a variety of treatments, none of which contain any additional additives, Prime IV’s professional team can help you set up a treatment plan perfectly tailored to your needs. In less than an hour, you could be feeling your very best.
