Independence Day, the Fourth of July, is the day when Americans celebrate the birth of our nation. In 1776, the Declaration of Independence was adopted by the Continental Congress, consisting of delegates from each of the 13 colonies. The United States of America was seeking its hard-won independence from Great Britain. For the next 7 years, the Revolutionary War would continue, but Americans and the young nation would ultimately prevail.
Today, we celebrate the victory for independence every 4th of July with fireworks, parades, picnics and a host of other festivities. It is a time we celebrate our country and its freedoms, and it is one of our most cherished traditions.
Celebrating Independence Day
Traditionally, the 4th of July is celebrated by many Americans with an abundance of alcohol consumption. While it may be regarded as socially acceptable, it poses risks and endangers others, nonetheless.
Some may choose to use the Independence Day celebration and its 4-day weekend to indulge in recreational drug use in addition to their alcohol consumption. Although enjoyment of the family picnic or the campout or the day on the lake may appear enhanced by such indulgence or consumption, in truth, it is risky behavior for everyone involved.
Factually, alcohol and drug use gone wrong during the 4th of July holiday can have serious or deadly consequences, and can ruin lives.
Narconon Arrowhead Issues New Tips
Narconon Arrowhead, an Oklahoma-based effective drug treatment facility with decades of experience in rehabilitation and drug prevention is offering the following tips for Americans on some ways they can celebrate and enjoy a safe and drug-free Independence Day.
Plan to attend parties or barbeques with others who want to enjoy the 4th of July without alcohol or drugs.
Host an alcohol and drug-free Fourth of July get-together and barbeque at your own place, letting those you invite know to bring non-alcoholic beverages and no drugs.
Decline invitations to parties or get-togethers where you know there will be drugs and/or over-indulgence in alcohol.
Choose family-friendly activities which can be enjoyed by both children and adults, such as local parades, and Independence Day events at the local church, local school, or local community center.
Attend community sponsored Independence Day events which are a true celebration of the holiday and what it stands for, and which you know will be alcohol and drug-free.
Honor the veterans who have served this nation to safeguard our liberties by volunteering at a VA hospital or VA nursing home, helping them to enjoy the 4th of July, too.
Set a good example for yourself and your loved ones by experiencing and enjoying Independence Day and all its festivities just as it is, without alcohol or drugs.
The rewards of staying safe, and drug and alcohol-free over the 4th of July holiday are many. As a result, your friends, families and loved ones will remain safe, too. Independence Day is meant to be celebrated without devastating and potentially fatal car accidents, alcohol-fused family upsets, emergency room visits caused by drug or alcohol abuse, and the actual potential for drug overdose or alcohol poisoning. Make this 4th of July a truly drug-free celebration of life.
Narconon Arrowhead wishes everyone a safe, drug-free and memorable Independence Day.

Commack, Long Island, NY (PRWEB) December 30, 2012
There is good news for Long Islanders who suffer from Sciatica pain. Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy, P.C. is now offering complimentary evaluations to help determine if Medical Massage Therapy can help relieve their pain.
Many times this common ailment is caused by trigger points in the buttocks and back. Though there can be multiple reasons for sciatica pain, very often, it is caused by the piriformis muscle. The sciatic nerve innervates the back of the leg, runs under, over, or through the piriformis muscle. Often, tightness or entrapment in the piriformis can cause sciatica pain, which very often causes intense pain in the low back, buttocks, all the way down the back of the leg into the foot. This is commonly referred to as piriformis syndrome and can be a pain in the buttocks! Often people do not stand with their weight evenly distributed between the two legs. Almost everyone tends to stand with the weight shifted to one leg or the other. And that means, piriformis, which outwardly rotates the hip, is working overtime.
Driving, especially long distances, can aggravate this condition. Kaplan-Pelle states, “One of the worst things you can do to a muscle is to leave it in a shortened position for a long period of time. Most people tend to drive with their knees apart, thus keeping the hips outwardly rotated. That’s one reason so many people experience low back or leg pain after long driving. Therefore, frequent stops, even if only to walk once around the car, it often recommended in addition, keeping a wallet out of a back pocket to eliminate undo pressure on the sciatic nerve.” Massage Therapy can often eliminate the pain associated with Piriformis Syndrome. The muscles may need to be re-educated and the associated trigger points addressed.
Soft-tissue pain can mimic the symptoms of many disorders, and can also contribute to pain from other causes. Hands On HealthCare Massage Therapy recommends that people not engage in self-diagnosis. A proper diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. Always obtain qualified medical advice from your medical doctor before undergoing any treatment.

With the coming of ‘Three Weeks’ AncestorEbooks reminds America and the world of the Jewish event that reminds the next generation of Jews of the difficult road their nation has trod. “There is no more tragic, no period more painful, no suffering more acute than what has befallen the Jewish people, throughout history, during the Three Weeks,” writes Sara Esther Crispe in her Chabad.org article ‘Breaking Walls.’ [bit.ly/10WiX4V]
“Beginning on day 17 of the Hebrew month of Tammuz and ending with the ninth day of the month of Av, the Jewish people, as individuals and as a collective whole, mourn and commemorate the many painful attempts at our destruction which occurred in this time,” continues Crispe in an easy to read article that all caring adults should take the time to read.
Historically during the Three Weeks time period, many tragedies have come to pass within in the Jewish culture. These tragedies include the loss of Israel because of a false report of the 12 spies, the destruction of the First Temple and 500 years later the Second Temple was destroyed.
Jewish custom forbids holding weddings, getting hair cuts, bathing for pleasure and participating in pleasurable activities. [bit.ly/10WiX4V] However, Jewish law implies that the future of the Ninth of Av (the last day of the Three Weeks) becomes the most joyous of days.
Dr. Erica Brown, one of the foremost Jewish educators wrote a book called, In the Narrow Places: Inspiration for the Three Weeks. [amzn.to/Zs7PPK] This book goes day by day through the Three Weeks, giving inspirations essays offers a renewal of hope during the reading of prophesies of doom.
Before the Three Weeks time period is Yo HaShoah (April 7), Holocaust Remembrance Day. In Israel, a ceremony is held at Yad Vashem at sundown. Flags are flown at half mast and six torches are lit by survivors commemorating the six million Jews killed in the Holocaust. The full name of this holiday is “Day of (Remembrance of) the Holocaust and Heroism.” The name emphasizes the suffering and slaughter of Jews during the Holocaust, but also the “active resistance” of Jews who joined the Resistance movement.
Less than a week after the end of the Three Weeks, is the 15th of Av, the greatest festival of the year. [bit.ly/13k8tQ2] This is a mysterious holiday without any specified customs with the exception of suspending the study of the Torah.
According to the 2010 census reports, there are 6,543,820 Jews in America, these customs of the Three Weeks applies to all Jews living around the world. AncestorEbook reminds readers that there are a number of Americans with Jewish ancestry that due to intermarriages may not be raised in the Jewish Culture. [jewishdatabank.org/Reports/World_Jewish_Population_2010.pdf]
Gayla Mendenhall of AncestorEbooks said, “The Jewish Culture is long on tradition. Members of the Jewish faith continue the same traditions and customs as their ancestors. These traditions should be recorded for future generations, whether they are raised Jewish or in another faith.”
“AncestorEbooks is a wonderful way to give a gift of remembrance to future generations. The ebooks can give descendants the strength to continue after reading what their ancestors were able to endure. An ebook can be given at the time of a child’s bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah, or even as a gift on the Day of Remembrance.”

Crystorama, one of the nation’s leading providers of decorative lighting, has teamed up with Swarovski to provide 16 chandeliers for the famed Henri Bendel holiday window display at the Fifth Avenue flagship store. This year’s display, dubbed the “Hirschfeld Spectacular,” honors the late Al Hirschfeld, an American caricaturist best known for his black and white portraits of celebrities and Broadway stars.
In conjunction with the installation, Crystorama and retailer Capitol Lighting/1800Lighting.com are hosting a holiday sweepstakes for a Crystorama chandelier featuring Swarovski Elements.
“We couldn’t be more flattered to be asked to be part of this iconic installation, and we’re excited that our fans will get a chance to bring a piece of the Hirschfeld Spectacular into their own home through our sweepstakes with Capitol Lighting,” said Brad Kleinberg, president of Crystorama.
Hirschfeld Spectacular at Henri Bendel
The main window of the Henri Bendel flagship store has been transformed into the formal dining room of a classic New York townhouse in the midst of a holiday party. The celebrated party guests—all Al Hirschfeld’s line drawings translated into three-dimensions—include: Carol Channing, Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, Liza Minnelli, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, Bernadette Peters, and Woody Allen. At the center of the window hangs a large gold-plated Crystorama chandelier sparkling with Swarovski Elements.
The centerpiece of the atrium is Henri Bendel’s iconic two-story tree, covered in malachite. Atop the tree is Al Hirschfeld’s Charlie Chaplin, also sculpted in three dimensions, looking down at all who enter the store. Fifteen Crystorama chandeliers with Swarovski Elements adorn the tree’s many branches.
“We are often inspired by fashion in designing our lighting collections, so it makes perfect sense to pair beautiful lighting with an upscale women’s specialty store like Henri Bendel,” Kleinberg said.
The display will be up through January 2, 2014 and can be seen at the Henri Bendel flagship store located at 712 5th Ave, New York, N.Y. 10019.
Chandelier Sweepstakes with Capitol Lighting
To celebrate the Henri Bendel window display, Crystorama has partnered with New Jersey-based retailer Capitol Lighting/1800Lighting.com for a sweepstakes where one lucky entrant will get to bring the magic of the Hirschfeld Spectacular to their own home, just in time for the holidays.
During Capitol Lighting’s “12 Days of Giving” social media campaign, the grand prize winner will receive a Crystorama chandelier from the Maria Theresa Collection featuring Swarovski Elements. Capitol Lighting will be announcing the contest on its Facebook page on December 12 with a photo featuring the chandelier prize. To enter, fans must “like” both the Crystorama and Capitol Lighting Facebook pages and “share” the announcement photo from Capitol Lighting on their own page and tag both companies; the winner will be announced on December 20.

Collages.net was recently honored with its seventh, eighth, and ninth Hot One awards from Professional Photographer magazine. Winning first place in three categories of the prestigious competition — display item, website, and online printing/order fulfillment service — Collages.net was recognized for its gallery wraps, its Build Your Brand marketing campaign, and collagesDesktop™ + collagesColor™.
“We are very excited about the award from Professional Photographer, most especially because it reaffirms our belief that photographers are looking for creative, innovative, and flexible products from a company committed to high quality and excellent customer service,” stated Director of Product Development, Deirdre Gillin.
Jeff Kent, Hot One Editor, also recognized the significance of this achievement: “As the Hot One Awards continue to expand, the competition for each category has heated up accordingly. For the 2008 awards, we had more than 220 total products entered in 58 categories by nearly 150 companies. That makes the 2008 Hot One Awards one of the biggest, most comprehensive photographic product competitions in the industry. Winners of a 2008 Hot One Award should be proud that they have achieved recognition in such a competitive and high-profile award process.”
The contest was judged by a panel of 18 professional photographers voting on categories that fit within their areas of expertise. Collages.net’s innovative new product line, high-quality gallery wraps in particular, insightful marketing advice, and digital, end-to-end workflow solution gave the company an advantage over the tough competition among Hot One participants.
Collages.net was awarded for its superior gallery wrap product, which, according to Professional Photographer, won praise from judges as “a high-quality display option for contemporary images.” Gallery wraps are canvas prints treated with a protective coating and wrapped on a 1.5-inch wooden stretcher. Unlike many competitors’ renditions of the product, Collages.net’s images continue along the edges of the stretcher, or photographers have the option of applying a solid color border to the side instead. Collages.net’s online ordering system is easy to use and includes a three dimensional preview of the finished gallery wrap.

Globehunters has announced a variety of USA special offers for autumn 2014. The UK online travel agent will be offering money saving promotions on holidays and flights to a range of US destinations including New York, Orlando and Boston. Other than the fall in prices, there are plenty of other reasons why autumn is a great time to visit the US.
Nowhere does Halloween like the US and there will be lots of macabre celebrations across the country. New York is no exception and October 31st sees the Village Halloween parade wind through the East Village. What sets this apart from the usual New York parades is that the public can participate by joining the procession in their own costumes.
In Orlando, Universal Studios will be running its annual series of Halloween Horror Nights from mid-September until the big night itself. For younger children – and the more easily scared – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party runs from September 1st and combines trick or treating with light-hearted Halloween parades.
Autumn is a particularly good time for visiting northern US cities like New York and Boston. Temperatures hover around the 20°C mark during September and October, perfect for exploring these fascinating cities without the humidity – and crowds – of summer and before the mercury plummets in winter.
Florida is mild even in winter and the autumn months lack the humidity and afternoon downpours of the peak summer season. Orlando’s theme parks are emptier than in the summer, which means shorter queues for the most popular rides.
Other Special Events
Oktoberfest may not be the first thing that springs to mind at the mention of the USA but the German beer festival is widely celebrated in the States. New York has numerous beer halls that celebrate the festival and they’ll also be celebrating in Boston, where the Harvard Square Oktoberfest is always a popular option.
In New York, the annual Columbus Day Parade is a lower key alternative to the sometimes overwhelming larger parades in the city. This takes place on October 13th on a US national holiday and features over 35,000 participants every year.
