World’s First Gay Men with Erectile Dysfunction Support Program Developed by Malecare Cancer Support











Malecare Gay Men’s Health Support


NewYork, NY (PRWEB) July 09, 2012

A new support group program for gay and bisexual men presenting with erectile dysfunction and impotence has been developed by the national nonprofit gay men’s health organization, Malecare. GayED.org includes in-person and on-line support groups, on-line lecture series and teleconferences and will also promote research into the unique issues gay men with erectile dysfunction face.

“GayEd.org responds to a problem facing gay men throughout the world,” said Darryl Mitteldorf, LCSW, the social worker who is Malecare’s Executive Director.

“GayED provides peer to peer support and great advice and information on treatments and techniques for having love filled and intimate relationships between men who enjoy sex with other men. It doesn’t matter if your impotence is caused by prostate cancer treatment or emotional issues…GayED.org will be there to help you” Mr. Mitteldorf reported.

Malecare facilitated the first gay men with erectile dysfunction support groups as an outgrowth of it’s work in prostate cancer, in 2002 and started to develop them into a comprehensive national program starting in 2011. The online support group at http://www.gayed.org launched Monday, July 9, 2012. The groups are supervised by Malecare’s volunteer social workers and psychologists.

“Gay men deal with impotence differently than straight men. The GayED.org support group is a lifesaver for me,” said Fred S., a 59 year old out gay man who is suffering impotence from diabetes.

Webster Tarpley: “There’s a currency war!”

While developing economies such as BRIC continue to grow, can they ever have a say at the IMF and World Bank? As currency wars continue to wage on will the world ever be able to get off the dollar? Webster Tarpley says the US owns 17% of the vote in the IMF; however developing countries are a center of resistance now.

Sex scandal trumps IMF failures

There’s IMF’s Dominique Strauss Kahn allegation that he sexually assaulted a maid in the NY’s Sofitel hotel, but a bigger scandal is what the IMF actually does. The Greek bailout, Portugal’s debt crisis, the anger of BRICS and other developing nations at the IMF’s imbalanced power structure. Weighing in is Nomi Prins author of, ‘It Takes a Pillage, Behind the Bonuses, Bailouts, and Backroom Deals from Washington to Wall Street.’

Boardwalk Porsche Announces Mike Marsh Has Completed Year-Long Executive Management Training Program











Mike Marsh receives his GMEP certificate of completion from Robin Cunningham (L) and Dennis Gregg of the NCM Institute.

Plano, TX (PRWEB) June 22, 2012

Boardwalk Porsche, an automotive dealership serving the Plano area, today announced that Mike Marsh, General Manager, has graduated from the NCM Institute’s year-long General Management Executive Program, a comprehensive executive development training program for auto dealership managers. Marsh attended a series of six 2½ day training sessions conducted over an 11-month period at the NCM Institute’s training facilities in Kansas City, completing the training on June 6th. The automotive industry is ultra-competitive and there is a high demand for well trained, customer focused executives that can create a good buying experience for vehicle shoppers, while continuing to successfully market and grow the dealership.

Happy to be among the graduates of the General Management Executive Program, Mike Marsh had this to say about the program, “The GMEP process was demanding, but a great learning experience. Now I’m eager to put the knowledge I’ve acquired to work here at Boardwalk Porsche to take our customer experience to the next level.” Marsh was one of 18 dealership executives and general managers from across the U.S. who successfully completed the rigorous training program which began on August 1, 2012.

“The management team at Boardwalk all feel strongly about continuing education for all of our staff and are proud of Mike for completing this program with NCM. Boardwalk believes that there is no better investment than in our people and we will continue to challenge each member of our team to learn and grow every day,” stated Ken Ambrose, Senior Vice President with Boardwalk Auto Group.

The General Management Executive Program is administered by the NCM® Institute Center for Automotive Retail Excellence and is designed to equip current and future automotive dealership executives for long-term success in retail automotive management. With emphasis in dealership financial and operational best practices, the program prepares students with the executive leadership skills necessary to successfully manage a retail automotive operation, where they must balance the volatility of the industry with the myriad operational decisions that drive the profitability of their dealerships.

NCM’s president and chief executive officer, Paul A. Faletti Jr., lauded the dealerships for their collective commitment to investing in their future leaders and for their dedication to promoting excellence and integrity in the industry. “We are an organization devoted to helping our automotive retail clients succeed,” he explained. “Without question, the most successful operators are those who invest in their people, giving them the tools and resources they need to be the best they can be.”

Copper the new gold?

As the dollar loses value, all of your hard-earned savings decreases. The dollar has fallen by more than 20-percent and many financial experts believe it has an even longer way down to go. Remember when pennies all used to be made from real copper? The government stopped using the metal to make them because the penny became worth less than the copper it was made out of. Now, copper is becoming so valuable that some are callling it the “new gold.” In the past year, copper beat out gold with a 28-percent return. Gold was just below, with 25-percent. Silver was the big winner with a 70-percent return. But going into 2011, the red metal might be poised to be the best performing metal. There’s growing demand and tight supply. Industrial production is strengthening in developing nations, which creates greater need for copper. The price right now is being driven by automotive sales and housing which need copper. Exchange Traded Funds (ETF) are in the works for copper, but in the meantime, look for a commodity account that holds copper, or a stock that specializes in the mining and refining of copper. Keep in mind copper is a cyclical investment, which also has risk related to China’s tendency to hoard it, and our inablility to accurately know how much.

Digital technology and emerging platforms have opened up new ways of reflecting life around the world. We will share some content and begin a discussion with producers of five projects that have taken advantage of new technologies and novel production methods to bring global stories to North American and European audiences. What are the agendas in bringing these stories home? How do producers negotiate these cross-cultural exchanges? What strategies are used to engage audiences with distant lives and experiences?
This evening will feature a panel conversation with video clips from Video Nation (BBC 2), WSJ.com, Global Lives, Breakthrough, and Metropolis (VPRO), with producers in attendance for a panel discussion. Complete information on each participant below. Curated with Mandy Rose.

Video Nation was a ground-breaking access television and participatory media project which was co-founded in 1994 by producers Chris Mohr and Mandy Rose of the BBC’s Community Programmes Unit. Fifty people across the UK were given camcorders and training and recorded aspects of everyday life during the course of a year. Selected recordings were broadcast on BBC2 with the best known output, the Video Nation Shorts, broadcast on weeknights forty weeks a year for nearly six years. The project won a Race in the Media Award and the European Prix Iris. During Video Nation’s first decade ten thousand tapes were shot and 1,300 shorts were screened on TV. The project migrated to the web in 2001 and continues today in a new format as Video Nation Network.

Mandy Rose is an award winning producer who has overseen participatory and interactive projects including the BBC’s pioneering digital storytelling project Capture Wales (2001-2008), Voices (2004) & My Science Fiction Life (2005) the latter both webby nominated. Between 1994 and 2000 she was co-founder and producer of Video Nation. In addition to the UK project for which fifty people made recordings about everyday life, Video Nation travelled to the Caribbean, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, Africa, and the Balkans, bringing vivid, first person perspectives from these regions to BBC screens.

WSJ.com, the online arm of The Wall Street Journal, aims to tell the stories behind the numbers and increasingly utilizes multimedia tools and videos on the web to give the audience a glimpse of the lives of people all around the globe.

Hilke Schellmann is a producer with WSJ.com, her first initiative being the multimedia project Faces of Health Care. The videos which were narrated by the protagonists themselves, showed the struggle of every day people in the US with health insurance. It was pegged to almost all the WSJ.com stories about health care reform. In March, Schellmann reported an influential video story about the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. She met with the stakeholders in Germany and made a very moving video, in which the victims talked about their plights and the church also addressed these issues directly.

The Global Lives Project is a collaboration of more than 700 filmmakers, photographers, artists and everyday people working together to create a video library of human life experience. They have produced ten recordings of 24 hours of daily life of individuals in Brazil, Malawi, Japan, China, Indonesia, India, Serbia, Lebanon, Kazakhstan and the US. Their multi-screen video installations have been shown at museums, galleries, universities and public spaces around the world including the United Nations University in Tokyo and the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco. Currently they are developing an interactive web version of the installation that allows for dynamic navigation within the video content, tagging, participatory subtitling, geolocation and hypervideo navigation, as well as a feature-length film. Producers Rahul V Chittella and Khairani Barokka in attendance.

Breakthrough is an innovative, international human rights organization using the power of popular culture, media, and community mobilization to transform public attitudes and advance equality, justice, and dignity in India and the United States. Through initiatives in India and the United States, Breakthrough addresses critical global issues including violence against women, sexuality and HIV/AIDS, racial justice, and immigrant rights.

Madhuri Mohindar is a Multimedia Manager of Breakthrough’s video documentary campaign Restore Fairness which deploys new media tools like online video, blogs, democracy in action tools and and social networking to mobilize action on fair immigration and racial justice. Its documentaries include “Face the Truth: Racial Profiling Across America” produced with the Rights Working Group, a coalition of 275 organization across America, ‘Restore Fairness’ documentary produced with 26 leading human rights and immigrant rights organizations, and ‘Death by Detention’, voted as ‘Best Long Form Video’ for the 2009 DoGooder TV Nonprofit Video Awards.

VPRO Television’s Metropolis is an award-winning TV show and new media project featuring content produced by a network of more than 60 documentary filmmakers from around the world. In each episode, Metropolis brings viewers a geographically diverse collection of short films, all grouped around a weekly theme. From obesity and the lives of fifteen-year-old girls, to self defense, outcasts and Elvis impersonators, Metropolis presents a new ‘global view’ every week, and exposes the surprising differences and similarities between people and cultures worldwide. The televised version of Metropolis has been airing in The Netherlands since 2008. All short films produced by Metropolis —over 600 in total—are also available worldwide on the show’s website, which recently won a special commendation from at the 2009 Prix Europa Awards.

Kel O’Neill (US) & Eline Jongsma (NL) have been US correspondents for Metropolis since the project’s inception. In addition, they are currently working on a new media project entitled Empire, which investigates the legacy of European corporate-colonialism in former Dutch East India Company colonies and trading posts in Asia and Africa.
