Collaboration Center Foundation Highlights Pathways Program Assisting Disabled Individuals and Their Families in Las Vegas

COLLABORATION center foundationProvides a Concierge-Style Approach to Assisting Individuals with Disabilities and Their Families in Las Vegas
Foundation aims to streamline information, outreach and treatment for individuals with disabilities with celebration of Center and Pathways program at May 19 virtual event

 

For those individuals and families living with disabilities, navigating the assistance, insurance, treatment and life skill options available to them can be daunting at best.  Collaboration Center Foundation aims to streamline the system and treatments by becoming a “one-stop” concierge-style program families can rely on to receive the very best guidance, assistance and outreach in Southern Nevada.

One of the key components of Collaboration Center Foundation, Pathways, will be highlighted on May 19 with a virtual executive lunch for key business leaders and fundraising professionals in Las Vegas.  Pathways, the foundation’s concierge case management program, guides individuals, family members, caregivers and partners on what resources and funding are available in the community and at the future campus.  Designed to be a central point to gain access to the necessary support and care, Collaboration Center Foundation becomes the one and only destination.

Held virtually on May 19 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., The Power of 19 event will honor Las Vegas’ community collective including Joseph W. Brown of Jolley, Urga, Woodbury & Holthus; Sonny Vinuya of the Asian Chamber of Commerce; and John and Jacki Miller, CEO of Lexicon and CFO of Smart City respectively.  These Vegas Angels will be celebrated by business leaders in the community during this luncheon hosted by Mark Shunock, in-arena announcer for the Vegas Golden Knights and creator of Mondays Dark.  Event registration is available online at www.collablv.org and starts at $119 per “ticket.”  Premium registration is available at $150 and includes a delivered box lunch.  In addition to benefiting the Collaboration Center Foundation, a portion of ticket sales will also go directly to feeding unserved families living with disabilities.  Sponsors of The Power of 19 include NV Energy Catapult Fundraising, Lyft and Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber & Schreck.

“Kicking off our endeavors and fundraising efforts during the COVID-19 ‘stay at home’ orders has proved challenging however it is now even more important for our disabled community to have access to services  in the very best and most streamlined way possible,” says Cindy Goussak, Chief Operating Officer, Collaboration Center Foundation.  “As a parent of an autistic child and having to navigate through complicated systems to get him access to important treatment, the Pathways program is key to make a difference in the lives of so many with disabilities and their families by assisting them to find the best options,” says Lynda Tache, VP of Funding, Public Policy and Donor Relations.

According to the World Health Organization, more than one billion people or 15 percent of the world’s population live with some form of disability.  The Collaboration Center Foundation is a community for inclusion, focused upon family and peer engagement, social interaction, recreation, therapy and education.  Founded in 2020, the Collaboration Center Foundation currently assists individuals with physical, mental and developmental disabilities of all ages.  The foundation’s core concept, Pathways, helps disabled individuals and their families access the very best of care and support systems available through a unique, concierge case management approach.  2021 will see the foundation’s campus come to life where disabled individuals and their families can engage with therapy, support, peer groups, family support, recreation and more under one roof.  The center will also have state-of-the-art facilities including a community-sized pool, mini-golf course, exercise room, an adaptive social-inclusive playground, enclosed park, multi-purpose sports course and more.  It will also be home to the foundation’s non-profit events and programs, community for-profit events and more, all in the spirit of being a true community collaborative center celebrating achievement and inclusion.

For more information regarding Collaboration Center Foundation, please call (702) 967-3522, visit www.collablv.org, or follow on Facebook and Instagram @collaborationlv.

With Las Vegas Ties, Avidium Labs & NXT Group Develop COVID-19 Quick-Results Testing Kit

Avidium Labs and NXT Group Announce COVID-19 Rapid IgG/IgM Blood Test Kits
Results Determined in Minutes and Validated with U.S. Laboratories

Avidium Labs, in partnership with NXT Group, have introduced a rapid IgG/IgM antibody test kit for SARS-CoV-2 also known as COVID-19. The test kit has been validated at company’s international partner facility and with U.S.-based laboratories in New York and California.

Evan Louie, Chief Executive Officer of Avidium Labs, stated, “We are excited to announce the news to the American public and the world. We have taken additional measures to further validate our results in CLIA-certified and full laboratories within the U.S. Our team is diligently working on getting our tests to a wide range of healthcare providers such as physician offices, hospitals, and government agencies for rapid results. Avidium labs has already started shipping tens of thousands of their IgG/IgM kits in the U.S. We have the capacity to manufacture more than 150,000 of our kits per week and have started receiving orders for shipment.”

Avidium Labs has partnered with SUNY Downstate Health Science University – University Hospital of Brooklyn in collaboration with Mirimus laboratory. The validation was performed on moderate to severe hospitalized patients. The research team is under the directorship of Dr. Prem Premsrirut and includes Dr. Rachelle Mendoza, Dr. Allen Norin, and Dr. Jenny Libien working with the company’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Brian Thomas Le. The test kit utilizes a small blood sample that can instantaneously produce results in less than 10 minutes.

SUNY Downstate in New York is currently recognized in the national media as a COVID-19 only facility and has the highest rate of infection per zip code in the U.S. New York is the global epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak with more than 200,000 confirmed cases and over 12,000 deaths. Avidium Lab’s results verified by the laboratories demonstrate a high efficacy in detecting IgG/IgM antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 in serum, plasma, or whole blood samples.

Avidium Labs and NXT Group IgG/IgM test kits are a serology test that can identify the antibodies to the SARS-CoV-2 virus in the patient’s blood. This can help to understand if one has ever been exposed to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. If implemented on a large scale, this serology test would give us a better understanding of the prevalence and fatality rate of the disease.

The serology test can identify people whose bodies have some degree of immune response to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. It can potentially be used to track immunity to SARS-CoV-2. It demonstrates a high efficacy in detecting antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.

 

Avidium Labs’ international partners conducted a comparative study of the rapid IgG/IgM antibody test kit for SARS-CoV-2 against other commercially available SARS-CoV-2 IgG/IgM detection test kits that show a positive coincidence rate of 97.92% and a negative coincidence rate of 100%.

NXT Group in its partnership with Avidium Labs has already submitted an application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for both notification and on the Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) track.

Founder of March Against Monsanto, an international grassroots movement 

against Monsanto corporation, a producer of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and Roundup, a glyphosate-based herbicide and proven toxin.

Founder of March Against Monsanto, founded in response to the failure of California Proposition 37, a ballot initiative which would have required labeling food products made from GMOs. Advocates support mandatory labeling laws for food made from GMOs.  The initial march took place on May 25, 2013. Events took place in between 330 and 436 cities around the world, mostly in the United States. Many protests occurred in Southern California, and some participants carried signs expressing support for mandatory labeling of GMOs that read “Label GMOs, It’s Our Right to Know”, and “Real Food 4 Real People”. Canal said that the movement would continue its “anti-GMO cause” beyond the initial event. Further marches have occurred annually in May, catapulting GMOs into a household term. http://www.march-against-monsanto.com

The NIGHT Pillow – Bruno Mars, Kanye West, Olivia Munn

 

Introducing NIGHT pillow.  After a decade in the bedding industry, the co founders of NIGHT came to a simple conclusion…pillows sucked.  They found that other pillows were made of absorbent materials that suck up everything – moisture from skin and hair, expensive face creams, pollutants, bacteria, youth, beauty, health and ultimately consumer money.  So, the founders of NIGHT spent years scouring the globe to develop a pillow that was incredibly comfortable while also being good for the health and beauty game.  NIGHT has organically attracted the support of celebrities, high profile influencers and dermatologists.
The NIGHT Pillow

Oxygenated memory foam pillow is soft and fluffy

Self adjusts to accommodate every sleep position

TriSilkTM pillowcase made from highest quality mulberry silk – previously used only for high end couture and custom fitted to prevent bunching

No extra pillowcase needed – sleep directly on it

Machine washable

Signature black hue negates light promoting a deeper, more restorative sleep

Fights bed head, wrinkles, and blemishes by moisturizing skin and hair

Hypoallergenic and antibacterial

Extras included – dark, salty chocolate, wash bag and eco friendly reusable tote

Born in NYC and made in the USA

 

The NIGHT pillow is available online at DiscoverNight.com for $150.00.

teamhayden1

The Perry’s world was flipped upside down this year when their twelve-year-old son, Hayden, was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer, Osteosarcoma. A normal routine of school and family time has since been altered to frequent hospital stays, surgery, and chemotherapy. Despite the physical and mental hardships this has caused Hayden, he has not let it get him down. His continuous positivity has touched and inspired many people in his life, especially his parents and his younger twin brothers, Ethan and Mason.

How to Party “Vegas Style” with no hangover ~ Intox-Detox ~ you can party like a rock star

intoxdetox1

Intox-Detox tackles the world’s oldest problem – the negative after effects of alcohol consumption with real science. And best of all, it works.

Intox-Detox Website
Intox-Detox Facebook
Intox-Detox Twitter
Intox-Detox Instagram

Hangovers suck! Before we get into how Intox-Detox™ just might be the best thing since Otto Frederick Rohwedder invented the sliced bread machine in 1928 (Seriously. Best thing since sliced bread), let’s first get into explaining what causes those painful after-effects of drinking too much. Then we can reveal how to avoid a hangover.

Those mornings after are painful. Most of us have been there. The headaches, nausea, aversion to bright lights & loud noises, and body aches are commonly associated with ‘tying one on’ and drinking too much the night before.
But what causes those painful morning-after side effects?

An enzyme in our liver breaks down alcohol into a compound called Acetaldehyde. This metabolite is mostly responsible for those painful ‘mornings after’, also known as hangovers.

Luckily for us, our bodies produce something called Glutathione which removes the toxicity of that pesky Acetaldehyde. Unluckily for us, our natural stores of Glutathione quickly run out when we consume larger amounts of alcohol. This causes a buildup of Acetaldehyde, which gives us those painful mornings after drinking.


Intox-Detox™ presents first-to-market ingredients!
Taken before you drink, Intox-Detox™ is the only product on the market that addresses the cause of the after-effects of drinking alcohol, not just the symptoms.

Japanese raisin can teach you how to avoid a hangover!Japanese Raisin: Intox-Detox™ provides a clinically-proven dose of Japanese Raisin, shown in human research to break down the metabolite Acetaldehyde, which is largely responsible for the painful after-effects of drinking.

Setria Logo 2Setria®: Using a first-to-market ingredient found only in Intox-Detox™, this patented ingredient is shown to increase Glutathione levels in people by 35%. Naturally produced in the body, Glutathione neutralizes the toxicity of Acetaldehyde,.

Hangovers suck! Intox-Detox™ has green tea to helpGreen Tea: Preliminary research suggests that Green Tea helps the body energize, detox and fight the damaging free radicals that come from toxins like alcohol.
Ginseng may function as an all natural hangover remedyGinseng: Not just for energy! The science says Korean Red Panax Ginseng can help restore balance and eliminate toxins from your body, boosting liver function.

Don’t be fooled – There are many products on the market that make miraculous claims about curing a hangover after drinking too much alcohol. Check the ingredients! Most are filled with simple vitamins & minerals. Intox-Detox™ is the one alcohol recovery product on the market with Setria® and Japanese Raisin; the only two substances proven by human clinical trials to neutralize the cause of the painful after-effects of drinking.

Local Letter Carriers to Participate in National Food Drive to ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ on MAY 14th

Local Letter Carriers to Participate in National Food Drive to ‘Stamp Out Hunger’

24th Annual One-Day Food Drive Takes Place Saturday, May 14, 2016

Local Letter Carriers to Participate in National Food Drive to ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ on MAY 14

Giving back is as easy as leaving non-perishable food items at your mailbox on Saturday, May 14, 2016 for your letter carrier to pick up and deliver to a local food pantry in need as part of the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive.

To participate, simply leave the non-perishable food items, such as as cereal, pasta, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, and canned protein (like tuna and chicken) in a bag by, or in, your mailbox and your letter carrier will pick up the items during their normal routes on Saturday, May 14, 2016.

This year, community members can also contribute money to provide fresh produce to pantries throughout the month of May by donating online at to http://www.stampyourgood.com/.

“All the food that we collect locally, stays here in the valley to help feed those in need in Southern Nevada,” said Glenn Norton, president of the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) Branch 2502, representing Las Vegas, Henderson, North Las Vegas and Boulder City.  “We are working with 19 local food pantries this year who rely on this food drive to get them through the summer months when children are not in school.   During the summer, especially, families rely on the pantries to help put nutritious food on the table.”

stampouthungercartoon

The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive is the largest one-day food drive in America and is always held on the second Saturday in May because by then, most food banks are starting to run out of donations received during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday periods.

Last year, the National Association of Letter Carriers’ Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive collected more than 300,000 pounds of food in Southern Nevada, which was an almost 50% increase over the previous year’s grand total. Nationally, individuals donated over 70 million pounds of non-perishable food in 2015. The participating letter carriers are hoping to surpass these numbers in 2016.
