Cityview Racquet Club Announces Schedule for Summer Weekly Social Series


Long Island City, NY (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

CityView Racquet Club is gearing up for its Summer Weekly Social Series to bring new and exciting activities to the club’s rooftop deck starting Memorial Day weekend. Member Services Director Ali Maher is coordinating the events, alongside the club’s Events Director, Ashley Howard, which will be similar to the Winter Weekly Social Series she began.

The Winter Weekly Social Series ran Tuesday through Friday every week starting in February 2015. Tuesday and Thursdays featured live music while on Wednesdays the club hosted trivia night; Friday is Members’ Living Room night, which is where members can host personal gatherings with friends and family in the lounge, putting their own footprint on the theme and menu of the evening.

Maher started the series because she felt that the sky lounge wasn’t being used to its full potential. Although the lounge provides an excellent space for all types of events, most members were visiting the racquet and tennis club for other purposes.

“I felt the lounge was underutilized,” Maher says. “Many people have a certain mentality of coming into the club just to use the workout facilities or spa, so we’re trying to emphasize other unique aspects at CityView Racquet Club, such as the cozy environment of the lounge.”

For the Summer Weekly Social Series, things will switch up as the weather gets warmer.

Maher says that the Living Room Series will continue on Fridays this summer, so guests can continue using the lounge for private parties. The Living Room Series is vital, she says, so members can invite non-members to the club to check out the space and maybe consider applying for membership.

The schedule for the rest of the week will change, however, to give club members some new activities to look forward to. Tuesday nights will offer sunset yoga, and Wednesdays will be barbecue themed gatherings.

But Maher is most excited about the improv comedy nights featuring players from Magnet Theater and The Ex Comedy.

In fact, Maher’s own background is in comedy and acting. A native of Westchester, NY, Maher spent her youth at country clubs; and after attending SUNY Fredonia for PR/Legal Studies, she headed to Manhattan to pursue a career in the arts.

Maher studied and performed at The Upright Citizens Brigade, People’s Improv Theater and Magnet Theater, and she says she had the opportunity to work with some of the best in the business. However, she switched careers and headed into the private event business, where she soon realized that CityView Racquet Club was the perfect fit for her.

However, all of the events planned for the summer are part of Maher’s goal: to create the social environment she believes members of CityView Racquet Club will enjoy. Where members might meet others at bars or exercise classes, they can now make connections and bring friends and family to the events at their favorite tennis club.

“It’s been a pleasure being able to merge the fun, exciting, spontaneous personality from the comedy world to an elite private racquet club,” Maher says. “This place is very special to all the members and evokes a strong sense of community that we want to continue to stress.”

The Summer Weekly Social Series is expected to be a hit, according to Maher, as the winter events have all produced nothing but positive feedback from members. She credits the club’s social atmosphere with setting the company apart from its competitors.

“In improv you are trained to receive information, accept it, and then add onto it, propelling the scene forward constantly. It’s a formula that helps produce results. I believe what makes this club different is we also live by this formula. We don’t stop offering a variety of options to give our members,” Maher says. “‘Yes’ is never enough when it comes to questioning whether or not we’ve done enough for them; it should always be a ‘Yes, and…,’ what else can we do to enhance the experience? How do we stay one step ahead of the member and anticipate their needs before they are even vocalized. It is this quality that makes CityView Racquet Club one of a kind.”

West Orange, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 05, 2015

Barnabas Health, the state’s largest not-for-profit health care system, today announced the launch of a new healthy cooking video series starring celebrity chef Sam Talbot. Talbot, a season two semi-finalist on Bravo’s Top Chef, teamed up with Barnabas Health to showcase recipes and dishes that promote wellness and healthy living. In support of the series, Barnabas Health is also re-launching an enhanced Wellness Website and the videos will be showcased on social media.

“Building healthier communities is a crucial part of Barnabas Health’s mission,” said Barry H. Ostrowsky, President and Chief Executive Officer, Barnabas Health. “As we become more intimately involved with our communities’ wellness in places where people work, live, and play, we will be providing education programs that will yield measurable behavior changes and health outcomes. This video series is another way for us to impact the well-being of the communities we serve.”

Diagnosed at a young age with Type 1 Diabetes, Talbot lives with a deep understanding of the impact food can have on a person’s life. This perspective has allowed him to develop unique recipes highlighting the importance of eating right and cooking healthy.    

Talbot is featured in 11 videos with Barnabas Health dieticians combining the science of nutrition as it relates to healthy eating and wellness with the art of cooking.

“Partnering with a health care system like Barnabas Health has been a wonderful opportunity to fulfill my mission to showcase the special blend of science and the art of cooking while promoting health and wellness, said Talbot. “The videos and unique recipes were designed to make cooking enjoyable and help educate families on the importance of nutrition and eating healthy.”

The “Life is better healthy cooking series with Sam Talbot” was designed to help educate families on how to eat healthier in a fast paced, fast food environment. The series also highlights the importance of making healthy choices of fruits and vegetables instead of highly processed, fast and convenient foods. These recipes are simple, quick, nutritious, and inexpensive.

The 11-episode series includes videos on breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacking, fast food, processed food and balanced diet as well as episodes featuring seasonal foods and recipes.

Content for the videos were developed by Talbot in conjunction with Barbara Mintz, RD, Vice President of Healthy Living and Community Engagement for Barnabas Health.

In addition to the ‘Life is better healthy’ cooking videos, the enhanced Wellness Website also features healthy recipes, health quizzes, diet and exercise tips, age-specific guidelines for appropriate health screenings and tests, as well as health blogs and an A to Z health library.

“This website and the new, interactive content featured were developed to promote healthier eating habits and healthier living,” says Ms. Mintz. “Our goal is to help the community become more informed about the importance of healthful eating and the positive impacts it can have on their overall health and wellness.”

“At Barnabas Health, ‘Life is better healthy’ is not just our motto – it’s our way of life. We incorporated that philosophy into this website redesign and truly made it all about the people we serve and gave them access to resources they can use to achieve optimal health,” added Ms. Mintz.

Bluewater Begins Global Roll-out Of Latest Water Purifier Series With Fresh Looks And More User Benefits


Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) April 23, 2015

Bluewater today announced the global launch of three new water purifiers offering a harmonized balance of design personality, performance and price that give users a choice of devices enhancing health, wellness and lifestyle needs. Bluewater opted to launch its high-performance, Scandinavian-designed new models at the WQA Aquatech USA 2015 water industry trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, running 22 – 24 April.

In a market typified by conservative thinking, Bluewater’s three water purifiers offer highly-relevant world-leading water purification technologies housed in stylish and ergonomic bodies in a cool grey color. With their compact, rounded shapes, the water purifiers are designed to be installed easily under a kitchen sink unit and provide easy filter change and maintenance access.

Bluewater’s smallest water purifier, Cleone, is a high-performing classic reverse osmosis unit that take ease of premium purification to the next level. Bluewater’s mid-sized water purifier, Spirit, has a sleek, contemporary style to fit naturally into any home environment and deliver 3-liters of direct flow water per minute (43.2 US gallons/hour). And the larger Bluewater Pro is probably the most powerful compact water purifier in the marketplace, delivering an astonishing 5.7 liters of water per minute (81.3 US gallons/hour) to professional users or those wanting a whole house water purification system.

Both the Spirit and Pro models harness Blueater’s unique second-generation patented SuperiorOsmosis TM technology. They both unite next-gen design and innovation to generate clean water 24/7, using little energy and reducing the water wastage commonly associated with traditional reverse osmosis systems by up to 82 percent – a timely benefit in a world where water shortages are becoming increasingly commonplace.

“These new water purifiers are simply stunning in terms of design and water purification performance and deliver improved ergonomics for easier access,” said Niclas Wullt, managing director of the Swedish brand that swept onto the global stage just 18 months ago. “Bluewater understands that people have different needs and our new series of water purifiers provide consumers and professional restaurant and other businesses with a range of options in size and looks that encompass the best of Bluewater’s water purification technologies.”

Mr. Wullt said that with its latest water purifiers, Bluewater is giving consumers and business users solutions that best fit their health, wellness and lifestyle needs. Noting that public water systems are in crisis around the world, he said that households and businesses alike increasingly need to take individual responsibility for the safety of the water coming out of their taps.

“Bluewater’s fully functional, patented SuperiorOsmosis™ technology enables users to purify tap water faster, on demand and at a higher purification grade with less wastage than our competitors, while removing practically all known potentially harmful contaminants,” Mr. Wullt said.
