ASF Payment Solutions making lives easier

A good friend of mine used to always be so health conscience and work out pretty much all of the time. They then got the idea that the best way to combine their passion and their career would be to open up a little neighborhood gym. All of us were totally for the idea and encouraged her the entire way. It took awhile for everything to kind of get started and going at a rate that did not require my friend to totally loose her mind every day with the amount of work and stress that was put upon her.
After awhile when things started to calm down just a tiny bit we started to notice that our friend who used to spend quite a bit of time every day working out at this point had lost a lot of muscle and gained a little bit of weight because she was working pretty much all day every day and never had a spare moment to spend some time in the gym which was the one thing that she really loved, the one reason why she had opened this gym up in the first place.
gym managementWe soon realized that she just had way too much on her plate so to say. She wasn’t exactly working with the most high tech of tools and machinery in the gym and we realized that this was probably one of the reasons that she was having to work so hard. A few of us ended up getting together to figure out a way to help her and what we eventually came up with was that we wanted to buy her ASF Payment Solutions health club and gym software system. This would take care of a lot of the work that was burying her and keeping her from being able to have even a small amount of personal time. ASF Payment Software automatically takes care of a lot of the more monotonous, day-to-day works that generally can trip up health club and gym owners and make them put way more hours of work into the company than they would otherwise have to.
It has only been maybe a month or so since we got her set up with ASF Payment Solutions software but already it seems to be making a big enough difference in how much time and effort she is having to put into the gym. We have even seen her at a few social functions recently which was something that would have never happened before. None of us are exactly sure how much time now she is able to spend working out in her own gym but it does also look like she is getting back towards the kind of shape that she used to be in so it seems that our plan to help her get back to her old self and have time for her old passions has at least started to work fairly well which is really all that we can hope to achieve.

Future Health is a fitness center that empowers you with education.

I attribute what I know about health to my friend and previous room mate Kimberly who told me all she knows about health, fitness and nutrition. She is one of those people who just has always been active and had no problem being in their body whatsoever. She is totally ripped and eats extremely well. I certainly did not understand how she could keep herself so committed like she did, but she was always exercising and eating well, even turning down glasses of wine because she knew that too much alcohol was not good for fitness centersyour body. In many ways, Kim because my teacher when it came to taking care of my body. I was never good at going to exercise classes or to the gym, but watching Kim in our own house taking care of herself gave me the tools to help me take care of me. It struck me that education is such an important part of wellness and not every fitness center is going to offer their customers cutting edge technologies that can help keep them healthy. When you have more of a framework for health and wellness, it becomes much easier to take care of your body. I am thankful that my friend Kim gave me that framework and modeled for me what to do to take care of yourself.

There was this health club in California that she was considering working for at one point in time, not only because there were a ton of famous people that would go there, but because they were a company that she really respected because they offered not just personal fitness but also nutrition, education and empowerment. They listened to each individual customer and modeled a program that would fit their needs and their body as best they could. Having information about your health is extremely important and there aren’t a whole lot of businesses out there that value that. One that does however is Future Health of downtown Los Angeles. They are a company that sees the future of health being education and empowerment as well as fitness and nutrition. When people can see the whole picture become empowered to take their health into their own hands, then really magical things can start happening with your body and especially your happiness. This is something that I definitely experienced when I was finally taking the journey to wellness when it came to my body and my food.

There are many different gyms out there that you can choose from but I have learned that the most important and powerful way to take care of yourself is to do so holistically. Companies like Future Health understand that we need to take a holistic approach to our health starting with education. My friend Kim also understand this and that is why I am confident in saying that I love my body, feel healthy and feel comfortable in my own skin. It is amazing the difference you feel every day when you can walk tall and proud in the knowledge you have about your body.

Take Advantage of HealthMaps Disease Surveillance Map

flu awareness

With the advent of so many technologies in the world, it is a wonder that we have progressed this far.  Just to think, a few decades ago, we wouldn’t even be able to think about the technologies we have today, and there has been considerable progression over the years.  Medical science has definitely progressed as well, as many of the world’s health scientists have discovered and developed numerous vaccines and cures for many of the diseases and illnesses in the world.  Not only have the world’s doctors and researchers gathered enough research and data over the years, but they have also been able to create large unified networks of communication to report all of their findings.  If it wasn’t for these kinds of advancements, we wouldn’t have a great deal of our medical findings and immunizations, so we should all be thankful for where we’ve come from in terms of these medical gains.  If anything, there have been more developments on top of these existing ones, and that is where HealthMap’s disease surveillance map comes into play.


When you first go to the website of HealthMap, you’ll soon see a whole global spectrum of what kinds of diseases and illnesses are happening in the world.  While this might not be the most positive news in the world, it certainly helps us understand how we as humans carry and transmit multiple kinds of illnesses, which can help not only families and local communities, but it can also make a huge difference for those in the medical profession, as mapping out these kinds of patterns and transmissions can be extremely valuable for research purposes.


The virus surveillance map that is provided by HealthMap is a great way to track what kind of outbreaks are happening near you, or even across the globe.  While it might seem almost impossible to track all of these different kinds of viruses and illnesses, the excellent programming and sourcing from HealthMap makes the process seem almost too simple!  You see, they make it a point to source each and every account of all of the diseases in their database, so they can keep track of all of the disease awareness in the world.  With all of their information from various and confirmed medical sources, they are able to compile results automatically and efficiently.  Out of all of this data they compile from global results, the people at HealthMap are proud to state that they have a 90% accuracy rate when it comes to their global virus map.
Once you are able to accurately read and specify what kinds of local diseases and illnesses are nearby in your community, you’ll have a much better time preparing for whatever comes your way.  With HealthMap’s integrated technology and accurate sourcing, you’ll have no problems at all when it comes to matters of health!  Just to think of it, there have been so many advances when it comes to the health industry, and the people at HealthMap are simply making it all easier to see.

An exclusive interview with a sex toy party consultant

Today, our post is about something a bit out of the ordinary.  Last week we talked a little bit about fun ideas for a bachelorette and began to scratch the surface of the adult novelty gift industry. Well, this week we are bringing you more information on adult novelty gifts and even had the chance to conduct an interview with a women who works as a traveling consultant for an adult novelty gift company, hosting sex toy parties for people around the country.  She had some interesting insight on sex toy parties.  If anyone is interested in learning more about a sex toy party and what it involves, read on!

We first asked her what type of people tend to host sex toy parties.  We were surprised to hear that she has been to sex toy parties with nearly every type of person imaginable.  The previous week, she hosted a party for a group of suburban housewives, who get together for a weekly meeting of some sort while their husband are at work.  These women were excited to learn more and she actually made many sales during this party.  She also does a lot of bachelorette parties, birthday parties, and even has some older clients.

“There is no standard client for a sex toy party,” she explained.  She herself was surprised at this and said when she started, she expected to see more patterns in the clientele. “When I first started, I was surprised at the number of typical every-day people who were interested in hosting sex toy parties.  It’s great to see everyone from housewives to college students interested in learning more about their sexuality.”

We next asked her about her most common sales.  She said that she does sell a lot of straight up sex toys (vibrators, etc.), but she also sells a lot of other things including games and lotions.

“We have a great line of sensual massage oils.  These are a best seller!  They are great for someone interested in spicing up their love life, but not quite ready to take the plunge into the world of sex toys. I seek massage oils at everyone of my parties.”

We then asked if she had anything to say to our readers who would stray away from the idea of a sex party.

“I get asked about this a lot in my line of work,” she began, “many people are intimidated by the idea of a sex toy party and feel that it’s going to be awkward and uncomfortable.  That is not the case!  I work hard to create an environment where people feel comfortable and present things in a professional manner.  I also try to anticipate the common questions people have and answer them before they’re asked, thereby decreasing the need for people to ask potentially embarrassing questions.”

So there you have it, sex toy parties are fun, professional, and held in the safety and security of your own home.  Consider hosting one for you and your girlfriends and learn what all the hype is about!

A good pharmacovigilance app is important

pharmacovigilance app

There is a new smart phone app on the market that I believe everyone should download. It’s called med watcher and the purpose of this app is to track and report drug side effects for pharmaceutical medications, vaccines and medical devices. I feel strongly about this app because I had a near death experience due to fatal side effects of the drug I was taking a few years ago. If only I had med watch back then I could have been notified of this side effect and avoided a costly and nearly fatal trip to the hospital. You can download it from the app store as we speak but first I want to tell you a little bit about pharmacovigilance how it all works.

Perhaps you have heard of apps for drug tracking or maybe you have not. Either way, there’s no better such app on the market than Med Watcher. If you’re looking for credentials, how about the Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard medical school? Both of these entities have collaborated to make this amazing app with the help of physicians and university professionals. To legitimize the app even further, the findings of user comments and reporting are given directly to the FDA and intern to the pharmaceutical companies themselves. It’s actually quite exciting to be part of this chain of command because a minor problem you’re experiencing today could be resolved and corrected for people who wish to use that same drug tomorrow. Medication side effects need to be logged diligently if they are to be corrected or labeled properly. Often times these side effects are inherent in the drug and patients have to decide whether or not the risk factor of taking that drug is worth it. By having a side effects app on your phone you cannot only report certain side effects of happened to you but you’ll be able to sign up for email and text notifications in case anything regarding your app, vaccine, medications or medical equipment should come up. It’s a wonderful way to stay in touch and keep yourself healthy.
If you are wondering what happens to your personal information on this app you need not worry. Made watcher guarantees that your personal information will be kept private when is submitted to the FDA. It is still illegal to violate HIPPA laws regardless if the information is beneficial to the FDA or not. When you submit a query or a comment all of your personal information will be stripped from the post and only the vital information sent along.
Although years and years as well as billions of dollars often going to researching prescription medicine it is impossible to know all of the unintended side effects of these medications. By giving a detailed explanation of your specific side effects you can greatly help the local community by use of this medication tracking app. Medication side effects tracking may very well be the way of the future in reporting and helping to develop new medications. Be part of the future and help your fellow man by downloading the med watcher app today!

Obviously, There are Many Different Reasons Why People have Cosmetic Surgery.

cosmetic surgeryAppearances are a extremely important, in our society, which is not always a good thing.  That being said, as long as it is handled in a reasonable, healthy, and intelligent way, putting forth some effort to maintain a certain appearance can be beneficial.  One of the biggest things about their appearance that people try to change is all of the signs of aging. That is why so many cosmetic procedures deal with eliminating various different features that make a person look older.  Of course, there are many reasons why people have cosmetic surgery, and there are countless different kinds of operations to correspond with all these reasons.

As mentioned above, a lot of the people who decide to undergo cosmetic surgery do it in an attempt to reverse some physical aging symptoms.  Provided you are healthy enough for such an operation, there are some cosmetic procedures that can have some pretty drastic effects, in terms of reducing wrinkles and other signs of aging.  Some procedures focus on the skin, as a whole, while others focus on certain key features.  One procedure that has amazing results, in terms of creating a youthful appearance, is blepharoplasty, a surgical procedure concerned with eliminating extra skin on and around the eyelids.  Blepharoplasty is popular, effective, and minimally invasive, as it only involved cutting away a small bit of skin around the eyes.

Blepharoplasty is good if you are trying to make your eyes appear more youthful, but if you have other issues you would like to correct, it may not be the best option.  A facelift is another extremely common cosmetic procedure that is intended to make patients appear more youthful.  Facelifts are so effective because they actually involve physically stretching the skin, until the wrinkles are no longer there.  As with anything else, when it is stretched, the wrinkles get eliminated.  The other facial wrinkle reduction operation is Botox injections.  Botox injections are, obviously, even less invasive, but they have a serious drawback.  Botox injections have only temporary effects, whereas facelifts have very long-lasting effects, usually at least several years, if not permanently.

Not all of the major cosmetic procedures have to do with the skin, alone, though.  One of the most prevalent and effective cosmetic operations actually has to do with eliminating fat deposits.  Of course, I am referring to liposuction, an extraordinarily popular procedure that involves using a suction device to remove fat from underneath a patient’s skin, anywhere on the body, where fat is present.  Liposuction is very safe, and it can be done more than once, during a patient’s lifetime, if need be.  Obviously, liposuction cannot prevent a patient from ever forming fat deposits again, in the future, but it can certainly be used to eliminate the fat that is already present.  To be clear, though, liposuction is not a cure for being overweight.  It is only intended to remove small deposits of fat that are unwanted because of cosmetic reasons.  If that is your intent for getting the surgery, though, you will be very happy with the results.

My families recent visit to a car dealership

I am a pregnant mother of two and recently I’ve began to get really nervous wondering whether or not my car is the best and safest option for my family.  We have an older Honda accord- and while it is a really great and reliable car, I am constantly wondering what would happen if we got in a car accident which involved one of those massive SUV’s on the road.  Chances are, it would not rule in our favor.  Thinking about this makes me very nervous! I have two young kids and one more on the way.  Many mothers in similar situations are driving their children around in vans or very safe SUV’s.  Not only am I worried about safety, but there is no way I can fit me, my husband, and three kids in car seats in my car (well, it will be two kids in car seats by then, my oldest one is about ready to have a seat of her own)!

I spoke to my husband about my concerns, and it turns out that it had been on his mind as well.  We decided to load up the kids and spend a Saturday afternoon touring some car dealerships to explore our options and learn more about what is involved in buying a new car.

We are not poor by any means, but we don’t have an abundance of extra money to spend on monthly car bills, so cost was definitely an important factor for us. We would definitely need to find a good financing option, and ideally get a good trade in value for our civic.

Our afternoon spent looking at car dealerships was actually quite pleasant! The kids were able to keep themselves entertained running around the car lot, and some of them even had designated areas for the kids to play.  We also go to talk to many well informed car dealers about the options available and our financial concerns about buying a new car.  How would we finance it? What kind of warranty options were available? Were would we service the car when it needed repair? Luckily, we got all of our questions answered and even ones we did not know we had.

We went home that night with a lot to process and think about.  We saw many great options and had to make a choice that was right for our family.  We were looking for a car we would have for a long time, not just for a few year.

We finally settled, and returned to the dealership to purchase a new Ford for our family.  We were pleased to learn that they not only had great financing options, but they had a team of mechanics who were trained in Ford repair.  Our warranty covered several free services, which could be done right their at the dealership.  On top of that, they took our old car off of our hands and gave us great trade in value for it.  We are very excited about our new car and feel confident that we will have a safe and spacious car for our soon to be three children!

Make your office space one you look forward to coming back to with high quality cubicles.

Working in a small space can have it’s benefits when it comes to rent payments and just general utilization of space. However when you have a lot of workers that need to go into cubicle wallsone space, it can be hard to just line desks up in a row without having each employee feeling like they always have someone watching their back or they can’t make that space their own unique space. That is why cubicle walls can be such an important part of an office space. It gives employees the feeling that they have their own space or even their own mini office while you are still utilizing the space, reducing rent payments and also helping provide boundaries to keep respective employees on task. It can be hard for each of us if there is someone across the room that you desperately want to have conversations with.

With cubicles you are able to personalize your space in a way that you couldn’t if you had just a desk. Perhaps you would like to put up a cork board, hang some photos of you and your friends at the beach or put up a dry-erase calendar that will help keep you organized.  You also don’t have to think about cubicles or office partitions in this boring and drab way. There are companies like MacBride New and Used Office Furniture that provide not just plain office partitions but aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly office furniture that is sure to brighten up your office and also make you feel like a contentious consumer. Give a little back to your employees by showing them you care with cubicles and other office furniture that exceeds the generic standards that we have in our minds when we first might imagine what a cubicle looks like. It is time to wash away the images of Dilbert and Office Space and allow for new and innovative ideas about the ways we can keep our work space come through. We can do that and more when we call MacBride New and Used Office Furniture and see what they have to offer our business.

Studies have shown that when you take the time to brighten up your work space and make it more aesthetically pleasing that you are likely to increase employee retention rates and improve the quality of the work that your office is going to produce. When you take that extra step to show that you care by offering something nice for your employees, they will in turn take time to provide you with longer commitments and stronger work. Though you may think buying a high quality and environmentally friendly cubicle can’t possibly make much difference in the work place, try out what it would feel like to offer office furniture to your employees that will create a welcoming and warm environment. Why not make your work place a place that you not only work but one where you don’t dread coming back to every day, in fact, you might even look forward to it.
