Laura Powell Earns Ayurveda Certification After Years of Coursework

Laura Kathryn Powell Texas

Laura Kathryn Powell Texas

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, June 24, 2019 / — Laura Kathryn Powell, from Austin Texas, is a professional event planner with a passion for yoga and wholesome methods of attaining peace, exercise, and happiness. She earned her Ayurveda certification after many hours of practice and course instruction to professionally apply teachings with clients.

In addition to a vigorous yoga schedule, Laura Powell balances her professional life by practicing Ayurveda, a whole-body system of living. Through this practice, she is able to manage the stress of day-to-day life easier and better prepare for her duties as a professional and as a mother.

Through Ayurveda, observers learn to naturally eat healthy, strengthen their digestive system, and live a more wholesome life. Ayurveda and yoga teachings together can encourage a much healthier state of being than the average individual experiences with increased core strength alongside a range of physical and mental benefits.

She’s learned that combining Ayurveda with yoga is a resourceful tool to rid the body of impurities and achieve a healthier well-being. From that, she says, flows a more peaceful mind, body and spirit. The practice has survived for thousands of years as a holistic form of medicine with millions of people around the world regularly practicing today. By following Ayurveda, people often overcome common illnesses and achieve a happier, more positive life.

After following Ayurveda instruction and discovering real results in her own life, Laura Powell decided to officiate her expertise through a certification course that would prepare her to help others achieve the same wholeness.

“Not all health solutions require expensive medications, especially if people just want to be healthier in general,” says Laura Powell. “With Ayurveda, we learn things like how sleep affects our overall health and how what we put into our bodies will have direct effects on how we feel.”

To earn her certification, Laura Powell spent hundreds of hours in a program where she learned the fundamentals of the approach to wellness and completed required training to work independently with clients. Half of her program was dedicated to presentations and course readings totaling dozens of lessons, which was necessary before moving onto the second and more specialized half of the teachings. Once students completed fundamentals, they enter a period of clinical mentoring where they take on clients in paced and observed teachings.

The program is hands-on and intensive to ensure that each graduate can successfully practice as well as teach Ayurveda to others. It required students like Laura Kathryn Powell to apply practical knowledge of the fundamentals such as diet, sleep patterns, lifestyle choices and more. In addition, they learned about various herbs that can be used to achieve a healthier digestive system and a clearer mind among other benefits.

“As a certified instructor, I use Ayurveda to help others achieve the wholeness and healthy living I’ve achieved,” says Laura Powell. “The course opened my eyes to the health potential in Ayurveda’s teachings, and I’m glad to share what I’ve learned with my clients through tailored instruction.”

texas mom says dairy must go.

Dani Alexander is a Houston, Texas mom who says dairy must go!

Lawsuits mount as more grassroots protests hit in US & UK this week over horrific cow/calf abuse at Coca-Cola partner Fairlife Milk's supplier Fair Oaks Farms

I'm a mother living in the heart of cattle country in Texas and I can tell you, first hand, the animal agriculture industry has to give way to something kinder to animals and the planet.”

— Dani Alexander, Houston mom and protester

MARINA DEL REY, CA, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 / — As Fairlife and Coca-Cola are hit with another wave of lawsuits over video showing horrific animal abuse, a new round of grassroots protests will also occur this week, coast to coast in America and in the United Kingdom! See the events pages below with upcoming protests in London, Los Angeles, Houston, Connecticut, Portland and – in July – in New York City! Still more demonstrations are in the planning stages. A wide array of animal welfare and environmental groups, under the banner Coalition Against Cruelty, are demanding Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey immediately take steps to cut his beverage company's ties with the cruel and environmentally unsustainable dairy industry.

The Coalition Against Cruelty urges Coca-Cola to switch to healthier, more environmentally friendly and cruelty-free plant-based milks. Coca-Cola's own website states, "Fairlife is a partnership between The Coca-Cola Company and Select Milk Producers Inc. Coca-Cola distributes Fairlife products." Fairlife has become embroiled in scandal in the wake of Animal Recovery Mission's explosive undercover investigation of Fairlife Milk's longtime supplier Fair Oaks Farms. The video shows calves being hit, dragged, shot, sat on, left on dead piles and, in other ways, subjected to nightmarish abuse. All this while Coca-Cola insists, in its written material, its partnership with Fairlife is based on "…exceptional cow care, smart and responsible farming, and sustainable agriculture."

Demonstrators implore CEO Quincey to consider the reality: the dairy industry is inherently cruel. For humans to drink cow's milk, cows must be impregnated and – after giving birth – separated from their babies, who would otherwise drink the mother's milk nature intended for them. This is why the Animal Recovery Mission's video shows rows upon rows of calves in hutches, alone, away from their mothers. Protesters point out the obvious. The calves become despondent and don't want to drink the replacement fluid from the rubber nipples. Workers are tasked with getting them to drink it. Frustration ensues, creating an environment ripe for abuse. This is why undercover investigations at dairy farms routinely undercover abuse. No "review" will change the fundamental cruelty of the dairy industry. No arrest of low level workers will get to the heart of the malignancy at the core of this process.

No desperate attempts to blame the messenger will mask the industry's harsh realities. Indeed, that will only confirm the moral bankruptcy of the industry's doublespeak, where shock is expressed over dead piles brazenly left out in the open, where people who systematically exploit animals feign heartbreak and blame underlings when exposed. The playbook has become worn and the world is getting wise to it.

Demonstrators will perform street theater where they will display the readily-available alternatives to cruelty-filled cow's milk. Holding cartons of almond, soy, cashew, oat, rice and hemp milk, demonstrators in cow masks will respectfully beg CEO Quincey, Coca-Cola North America President Jim Dinkins and Fairlife COO Tim Doelman to discard their willful ignorance and admit the obvious: their stated values of integrity and high animal welfare standards are inherently incompatible with dairy. Simply put, there is no nice way to rip a baby away from his or her mother, much less do that to tens of thousands of calves.

Coca-Cola executives have publicly revealed their strategy to premium-ize milk and, thereby, be able to charge a premium. The Coalition Against Cruelty suggests the wiser strategy would be to pivot to the products being increasingly embraced by millennials and Gen Z'ers: plant-based milks. Coca-Cola's stated corporate vision includes the following: "Be a responsible citizen that makes a difference by helping build and support sustainable communities." Animal agriculture, which includes dairy, is a leading cause of climate change, responsible for more greenhouses gases than all transportation combined.

In crisis there is opportunity. A pivot to genuine compassion and genuine sustainability would be applauded globally by animal lovers, environmentalists and consumers in general, all of whom were revolted by the video evidence of barbarism and hypocrisy. Climate change is getting worse and will soon create an economic catastrophe that will devastate all businesses including Coca-Cola. We know this switch can be done because one google search shows it is being done. Compassion Over Cruelty's protests against Coca-Cola will not end until a real change occurs. The time is now.

Welcome Wagon Reviews the Effectiveness of Direct Mail Marketing for Local Businesses

Welcome Wagon New Mover Marketing for Local Businesses

Welcome Wagon New Mover Marketing for Local Businesses

Welcome Wagon New Mover Marketing for Local Businesses

To get started, visit

National marketing company continues to see high success with direct mail marketing as a proven and effective method for stirring up interest & inciting action.

Direct mail offers a huge opportunity for businesses to get into the hands of new movers who are actively looking to replace business relationships from their old community with new ones.”

— Steve Goodman, CEO and President of Welcome Wagon

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 / — As America’s Welcoming Service since 1928, Welcome Wagon has been introducing businesses to their best source of new customers – new movers. With 36.8 million address changes per year, businesses need to replace about 25% of their customer base that moves within a given year. Studies have shown that 85% of new movers will use the first vendor that contacts them, and 93% of those new movers take advantage of offers or invitations from a business in their new community that welcomes them to their new neighborhood. Welcome Wagon’s direct mail marketing solutions have proven successful due to its unique strategy targeting new movers and homeowners first.

United States Postal Service statistics have shown that the total volume of mail has declined since 2006 by nearly 30%, with a person receiving an average of 2 pieces of mail per day. With less mail to sort through, this leaves more room for businesses to stand out when targeting new movers in their local community with enticing offers.
When it comes to marketing, direct mail is consistently leading in new customer acquisition. And because new movers are at a stage where they are looking for goods and services, they are receptive and appreciative of the service they receive from local businesses in their new community and are ready to take action.

“Direct mail offers a huge opportunity for businesses to get into the hands of new movers who are actively looking to replace business relationships from their old community with new ones,” said Steve Goodman, CEO and President of Welcome Wagon. “Welcome Wagon’s solutions offer businesses multiple touchpoints to reach new movers, which is critical to the success of any marketing program.”

Welcome Wagon’s proven direct mail strategy includes a high-quality Gift Book delivered upon move in with full-page ads and category exclusivity. As a 30 day follow-up, new movers receive oversized postcards showcasing individual businesses with compelling offers to continue driving new customers to your business. For repeated exposure, a customized Especially For You Follow-Up Book is mailed to new movers as a follow-up piece.

With a variety of print marketing options, coupled with their innovative digital advertising solutions, Welcome Wagon allows businesses new and engaging strategies to reach new customers and grow their loyal customer base.
More about Welcome Wagon

Welcome Wagon was created in 1928 to embody the spirit of warm hospitality and welcome. Welcome Wagon continues the same mission to this day, helping to create lasting relationships between new movers and local businesses. Their goal is to assist people in saving money, growing their business, and helping the local economy prosper. For more information on Welcome Wagon, visit

Brady Bunte – Bernie Trifoso WWII Veteran D-Day survivor.

Brady Bunte with World War II Veteran Bernie Trifoso

Brady Bunte – Bernie Trifoso WWII Veteran D-Day survivor.

He told Brady Bunte that he couldn’t believe 75 years had passed since the Normandy invasion.”

— Brady Bunte

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2019 / — Brady BunteBernie Trifoso WWII Veteran D-Day survivor.

Brady Bunte says that it was a great honor it was to meet Mr. Bernie Trifoso a World War II Veteran / D-Day survivor. At age 95, a Laguna Niguel, California resident, and just 10 days ago marked the 75th anniversary of D-Day World War II and Bernie is one of the last survivors who served not only in this historical war but 2 more following it. He is sharp as a tack and carries a smart phone that he took out and took pictures of himself and Brady Bunte.

For Bernie and many in his generation, wartime memories have been locked away for many years and few soldiers ever talk about it, but a few years ago Bernie started sharing his wartime experience and the stories began to spill out.

D-Day marks one of the most famous military actions in history and is widely credited with ending World War II.

At 19 years of age Bernie enlisted in the Coast Guard. Service to the country was something that came natural for his family, all of his brothers served in World War II and miraculously all four retuned home safely. He attended Columbia University and Bernie has shown great patriotism for his county. He told Brady Bunte that he couldn’t believe 75 years had passed since the Normandy invasion. “It seemed like it was yesterday” Trifoso said.

Bernie earned 2 bronze stars for bravery and is proud to have served his country. And he spoke lovingly of taking his wife back to Normandy to share his wartime memories. Sadly, today she has Alzheimer's and was not there when we interviewed him. He calls her "the love of his life."
Trifoso asked that we remember those "who bravely sacrificed so that we could enjoy our lives." By Brady Bunte.

Nutrigenomix wins 2019 NutraIngredients Award in Geneva for best Personalized Nutrition Initiative

Nutrigenomix Sport Report

TORONTO, ON, CANADA, June 21, 2019 / — Nutrigenomix Inc., a global leader in genetic testing for personalized nutrition, is pleased to announce their recent win at the 2019 NutraIngredients Awards in Geneva, Switzerland. The company took home first prize in the Personalised Nutrition Initiative Category with their Personalised Sport Nutrition & Performance Report “Nutrigenomix-Sport”, which is a genetic test now used by many professional sports teams to provide customized nutrition recommendations.

Nutrigenomix is at the forefront of a rapidly growing field that is developing DNA-based nutrition and performance-related advice for athletes. It is also one of the only genetic testing companies in the world supporting novel research on nutrition, genetics and athletic performance at several universities around the world. “Our research program at the University of Toronto focuses on nutrigenomics for sport, and our previous findings have contributed to the development of Nutrigenomix-Sport,” says Dr. Nanci Guest, a sport dietitian who is the sport science lead on the Nutrigenomix team. “Our research is ongoing and current projects have yielded exciting new results that will be incorporated into an expanded sport test”.

Nutrigenomix-Sport is being offered by sport dietitians, nutritionists, physicians, coaches, and trainers and has provided benefits to athletes of all levels. “I have used Nutrigenomix Sport with many of my athletes and I’ve seen first-hand how their performance improved, once their nutrition was optimized and aligned with their genetics” says Jorie Janzen, a Sport Dietitian who has been working with Canadian Olympians and NHL players for several years. “And it’s not just my elite athletes. My fitness clients and even my weekend warriors are enthusiastic about having me design them a DNA-based diet so they can perform their best.” she adds.

The test includes genetic markers that have been shown to affect nutrient metabolism, food intolerances, body composition, eating behaviors and cardiometabolic fitness. The customized report provides each client with personalized dietary recommendations on vitamins, minerals as well as optimal levels of protein, fats and carbohydrates to help improve performance in fitness enthusiasts and athletes alike. Studies show that personalized information is a powerful motivator to improve adherence to dietary advice. Dr. Ahmed El-Sohemy and his team of researchers at the University of Toronto conducted the first randomized controlled trial of DNA-based dietary recommendations on eating behaviors. “Individuals who receive DNA-based dietary advice are much more likely to follow the recommendations they’re given,” said Dr. El-Sohemy. “This results in greater improvements to their diet, which directly impacts their health, body composition and performance”.

With offices in Canada, UK, Australia, Brazil and the United States, Nutrigenomix has been expanding rapidly to meet the growing demands by healthcare and fitness professionals, as well as consumers, for a high-quality genetic testing service. Being the only nutrigenetics testing company worldwide that was established at a major university, the University of Toronto, Nutrigenomix is regarded as one of the most trusted sources of genetic information for personalized nutrition.
