Kennesaw, Georgia (PRWEB) February 11, 2015

Yamaha Parts and Accessories, a division of Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A., today announced an exclusive collaboration with leading exhaust manufacturer, Yoshimura R&D of America, to deliver a new line of high performance, emissions-compliant, slip-on exhaust systems custom engineered for Yamaha’s renowned YZF®-R1M™, YZF-R1®, and YZF-R3® sport bikes.

“Yamaha, much like Yoshimura’s® lineage, was born from racing, so it made perfect sense to collaborate on these two technological, race-inspired masterpieces,” said Frank Pittman, Vice President, Customer Support Group, Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. “The new Y-Series will feature Yoshimura’s exemplary craftsmanship while maintaining a factory fit for easy installation.”

Demonstrating Yamaha’s continued commitment to their dealer network, the newly announced exhaust systems will only be available from Yamaha’s large network of authorized brick-and-mortar dealers.

“Our dealers are an integral part of our business, and they’re an outstanding educational resource for the consumer. We are excited to bring this opportunity to them,” said Pittman.

Featuring a custom “R” badge, packaging, and finishes that include Stainless Steel, Carbon Fiber, or a mix of the two, the Y-Series builds on Yoshimura’s reputation for performance, unique sound, weight reduction and ease of installation. The first products to come to market in the new Y-Series will be available for the Yamaha YZF-R3, followed closely by the YZF-R1M/YZF-R1.

“Yamaha sport bikes provide incredible performance to begin with, and the new Y-Series is intended to enhance that performance to give sport riders an unrivaled choice of machinery,” said Dave Waugh of Yoshimura.

The two companies’ commitment and dedication will be on display as they join forces and launch a co-operative, robust Go-To-Market plan supported by additional marketing opportunities, including promotion through both companies’ websites, digital advertising, catalogs, event support and racing collaboration modeled along the lines of the impressive Yamalube Westby Racing team who plans to field a new YZF-R1 in the MotoAmerica™ Superstock series.

Agein Corporation Responds to Findings: Prolonged Sitting Leads to Death and Disease


Boston, MA (PRWEB) January 30, 2015

Agein.com, the Internet’s premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is weighing in on a recent study that found that prolonged periods of sitting can lead to death and disease. Agein.com also announces the top strategies to help reduce the amount of time spent sitting.

“It isn’t uncommon for people to spend the better part of their day sitting. Many go from the car to the office to back in the car to the dinner table, then spend the rest of the evening watching TV on the couch,” says Dr. Kevin J. McLaughlin, Agein.com’s anti-aging and health and wellness specialist. “In fact, it’s believed that an average person literally spends half their day sitting. Unfortunately, new data suggest a sedentary lifestyle could be killing us.”

Researchers in Toronto analyzed data pooled from 41 international studies and found that prolonged periods of sedentary behavior were associated with a 15% to 20% higher risk of death from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer and as much as a 90% increased risk of developing diabetes. (Source: Ubelacker, S., “Sitting for too long can kill you, even if you exercise: study,” CBC web site, January 19, 2015; http://www.cbc.ca/news/business/sitting-for-too-long-can-kill-you-even-if-you-exercise-study-1.2918678.)

Dr. McLaughlin explains that the data are adjusted for the effects of regular exercise. While regular exercise, a healthy diet, and a daily personal care regimen are important for maintaining a healthy lifestyle, engaging in 30 to 60 minutes of exercise does not mean individuals can relax for the rest of the day.

“Staying healthy is about balance. In order to really lower the risk of disease and premature death, people need to incorporate more anti-aging fitness into their schedule and reduce the amount of time they spend sitting down,” he adds. “In addition to exercising, people need to make a conscious effort to reduce the amount of time they sit in a 12-hour day by at least two to three hours.”

“There are a number of easy strategies everyone can incorporate into their day to help keep them moving. For instance, if someone works at a desk all day, they should make a point of taking a short two-minute walk once an hour, and if they work in an office building, they should skip the elevator and take the stairs. And when watching TV, people should use commercial breaks to walk around,” Dr. McLaughlin concludes. “It doesn’t take a lot to effort to make a big lifestyle change; everyone just needs to make a concerted effort to move around, eat healthy, and get a good night’s sleep.”

Jewish Community Housing Corporation of Metropolitan New Jersey Offers Helpful Winter Safety Tips for Seniors

West Orange, N.J. (PRWEB) January 28, 2015

The winter season can present serious challenges to older adults in many parts of the country, whether they live in a private home, apartment, or in a retirement community. The Jewish Community Housing Corporation of Metropolitan New Jersey (JCHC), which owns and manages four senior living communities in northern New Jersey, advises seniors to take additional steps to stay safe during the colder months.

“We take extra precautions during the winter months to ensure our senior residents remain safe, warm and secure,” said Terrence Roselle, the JCHC’s Regional Facilities Director. “Measures in all four of our communities are executed to meet the demands of rough winter weather, when we must contend with near-freezing or below-freezing cold temperatures, ice and snow, and when our seniors must often spend extended periods of time indoors.”

Aside from timely snow and ice removal from all public walkway and the parking lot, Roselle noted that the JCHC offers transportation for residents to area shopping destinations and for cultural outings, and maintains appropriate indoor temperatures to keep residents warm and comfortable. Standby generators are being installed in case of a power outage and emergency protocols are in place in all four JCHC communities.

“After Superstorm Sandy, we held organization-wide programs called ‘JCHC Strong’ in all four of our communities, to educate residents on how to better prepare for extended power outages and weather emergencies,” said Roselle, who heads up the JCHC’s emergency planning task force.

The JCHC offers these helpful tips for seniors, their families, and caregivers to keep elderly or frail individuals safe and healthy during the winter, and to prevent common hazards of the season.

    Prevent unnecessary slips and falls. Older adults are particularly vulnerable to broken wrists, ankles or hips, and could suffer severe lacerations to their head or face in the events of a slip and fall.
o    Keep walkways clear of ice and snow. Have a reliable snow shoveling service lined up in advance of bad weather and adequate ice melt product on hand for steps and sidewalks.

o    Maintain good traction. Wear shoes with non-skid soles and replace worn cane tips. Remove shoes indoors to avoid tracking in melting snow and ice that can lead to dangerously slippery floors.

    Avoid frostbite or hypothermia.
o    Dress warmly in layers. According to the National Institutes of Health, hypothermia can develop in older adults after relatively short exposure to cold weather; therefore, dress warmly when going outdoors, keep extremities warm, and add hat, scarf, and gloves.

o    Keep indoor temperature warm enough. Don’t set the thermostat too low and keep extra blankets on hand for chilly nights in order to maintain proper body temperature.

    Prepare the car—and driver—for winter driving. Cold weather is no time for roadside breakdowns or stalled vehicles. Have the car serviced before deep winter hits and have all systems checked to stay safe on the road. Sign up for a roadside assistance program and keep a cell phone charged and on hand for emergencies. Avoid driving in hazardous conditions.
    Eat well and take Vitamin D. A varied, nutritional diet is always important at any age. However, less time spent outdoors in direct sunlight means less Vitamin D which is essential for healthy bones and teeth. Add supplementation to the diet and/or include grains, tuna and salmon, and fortified milk to avoid Vitamin D deficiency.
    Install a carbon dioxide monitor. Using a fireplace, gas heater or lanterns can lead to carbon dioxide poisoning if rooms are not properly ventilated. A carbon dioxide detector is an easy way to avoid this dangerous situation.
    Have an emergency kit. Be prepared for an extended power outage with a flashlight (and fresh batteries), warm blankets, non-perishable foods, a cell phone and charger, and a battery-powered radio. Have a family communication plan in place to check on each other.
    Stay in touch with loved ones. The winter can be tough on some people because they are indoors so much and they might be more isolated than usual. It’s a good idea for families to check in on their loved ones more frequently, not only to make sure they are doing well physically and emotionally.

Agein Corporation Responds to Study Showing Urban Air Ages Skin 10% Faster than Rural Life


Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 13, 2014

Agein.com, the Internet’s premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is responding to a recent study that found living in urban areas makes the skin age 10% faster than living in a rural setting.

According to recent scientific evidence, pollution can age the appearance of women’s skin 10% faster than those who live in the countryside. A study looked at women aged 30 to 45 and compared the skin quality of those living in urban areas with those living in a rural setting. While both test groups had similar lifestyles and were exposed to comparable amounts of ultraviolet light, those in urban areas experienced greater skin damage. (Source: “Skin Ages 10 Times Faster If You Live In A City, Study Finds,” The Harley Medical Group web site, November 10, 2014; http://www.harleymedical.co.uk/news/skin-ages-10-times-faster-if-you-live-in-a-city-study-finds.)

“After analyzing the data, researchers concluded that living in the city makes the skin age 10% faster than living in the country,” says Dr. Kevin J. McLaughlin, Agein.com’s anti-aging and health and wellness specialist. “While there is no doubt that pollution damages the skin, the big questions are why and what can people do to prevent premature signs of aging?”

Studies show that the air in urban areas all over the world contains no less than 224 chemicals. The air pollution particles can penetrate the skin and damage proteins called keratins that protect the skin from moisture loss; the breakdown of this type of protein leads to the formation of wrinkles and premature aging. For those with sensitive skin, air pollution can lead to further issues, including uneven skin tone, redness, and inflammation, says Dr. McLaughlin. With 80.7% of the U.S. population living in urban areas, this groundbreaking research could have a significant impact on the way Americans look after their skin. (Source: “2010 Census Urban and Rural Classification and Urban Area Criteria,” United States Census Bureau web site; http://www.census.gov/geo/reference/ua/urban-rural-2010.html, last accessed November 12, 2014.)

“Whether someone lives in the city or the country, to keep skin moisturized, healthy, and youthful-looking, it’s important to have a daily skin care regimen,” Dr. McLaughlin adds. “Use an anti-wrinkle moisturizing cream scientifically proven to improve skin tone and the appearance of deep wrinkles, as well as one that reduces fine lines around the eyes.”

Gentle ingredients such as acetyl hexapeptide-3 (Argireline) and Matrixyl 3000 have been shown to protect skin against the elements and improve the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin, says Dr. McLaughlin. Matrixyl 3000 is a cutting-edge protein fragment that specifically targets thin, delicate skin and fine lines around the eyes and mouth and has been shown to stimulate the production of collagen from within the skin and improve skin tone. (Source: “Matrikines and Rejuvenation,” RBC Life Sciences web site, December 2003; http://www.rbclife.info/pdfs/c7/matrixyl3000.pdf.)

Argireline is a protein that targets expression wrinkles. In one independent study, published by the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, Argireline reduced the look of wrinkles by 32 percent after just 28 days, says Dr. McLaughlin.
