SPRING, TX, February 23, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Christina Rene‘ Murata, Owner, Chief Executive Officer, and Process Safety Consultant with Risk Integrity Safety Knowledge, Inc. (RISK, Inc.), has been recognized as a Distinguished Professional in her field through Women of Distinction Magazine. Christine Rene‘ Murata was recently featured in Women of Distinction Magazine and will soon be featured in the Top 10 of 2016 edition.

After completing her undergraduate work in 2004, Christina Rene‘ Murata began her career as an Assistant Engineer for an electrical firm in their Research and Development Department developing internal policies and procedures. Several years later, she relocated to California with her husband and took a position as an Administrative Assistant working in refinery before being promoted to Engineering Assistant turned Assistant Engineer. It was during that time that she became educated on Process Safety Management (PSM) that was required of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

As a Process Safety Consultant in the gas, oil, chemical, and petrochemical industries, Murata has been serving as Owner and Chief Executive Officer of Risk Integrity Safety Knowledge, Inc. (RISK, Inc.) for the past seven years. With two locations, one in Spring, Texas and one in Sao Paulo, Brazil, the company strives to offer a higher level of quality and integrity in PSM.

„When I first got started in the industry in 2005, there were a series of minor incidents that impacted my husband, brother-in-law, and several friends due to undocumented changes in the field. Although minor, they had the potential to become quite serious and potentially life threatening. That was when I became actively involved in the PSM program. I work in this field today because it impacts lives in a positive way. I believe that everyone can and should go home to their loved ones safely and a quality PSM program can be critical. Today, I work to help other companies improve their safety programs, while also educating and working with them on improvements.“

In addition to Murata’s daily responsibilities, she is training an assistant to take on the role of US Manager to run the US office so that she can focus on getting the organization’s Brazilian office up to speed.

Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges A Demolition Construction Worker With Mesothelioma To Call About Compensation And Specific Lawyers To Help Improve The Settlement

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, „You rarely hear about demolition construction workers and mesothelioma-but it is a problem and we are offering to make certain people like this have the instant access to the top lawyers for compensation.“

NEW YORK, NY, February 23, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Mesothelioma Victims Center is now urging any current or former demolition contractor to call them anytime at 800-714-0303 if they have recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma; this invitation includes the family members if their loved one is too sick to call on their own. The goal for these specific types of people with mesothelioma is to get them the best possible compensation and immediate access to some of the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who consistently get the best financial compensation results for construction or demolition construction workers who have this rare cancer.

Demolition construction workers could have had asbestos exposure worse than a shipyard worker if they were in the business during the 1960s, 1970s, or early 1980s. The difference between demolition and new construction, framing, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, and insulation, comes down to everything being installed in an orderly process. In demolition construction, everything with the exception of the load bearing walls goes, frequently all at the same time. This means there is a great potential for asbestos exposure, especially from airborne debris.

Asbestos exposure to asbestos is what causes mesothelioma and as the group would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Vital compensation tip for a demolition construction worker who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma from the Mesothelioma Victims Center:

* Compensation for a demolition construction worker can be more difficult for the attorneys assisting as so many job sites could have been involved.
* If the lawyers/law firm you are talking to cannot prove they were the lawyers that recently produced a substantial mesothelioma compensation settlement for a former demolition construction worker, please call us at 800-714-0303 for direct access to attorneys who have these types of references. http://MesotheliolmaVictimsCenter.Com

Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, miners, pulp or paper mill workers, printers, factory workers, railroad workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, welders, pipefitters, insulators, firemen and construction workers. In most instances a person who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is about 70 years old. This year between 2500, and 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, „If you call us at 1-800-714-0303, you will be talking directly to some of the nation’s skilled and experienced lawyers, and they make house calls. When it comes to mesothelioma compensation please don’t shortchange yourself because a less than qualified lawyer or law firm.“ http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.

However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a former demolition construction worker with mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.

Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Reza Tirgari of Avalon Laser Interviewed on eHealth Radio Network

Dr. Tirgari shares when patients should undergo nonsurgical treatments for spring and summer, talks about patient experience and specials at Avalon Laser

SAN DIEGO, CA, February 23, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Avalon Laser announced on Monday that principal physician Dr. Reza Tirgari recently appeared on the eHealth Radio Network, an online platform that brings listeners „the latest information from healthy industry experts.“ Dr. Tirgari discussed many of the nonsurgical cosmetic treatment options available at Avalon Laser, as well as current specials to help patients get beach body-ready without breaking the bank.

The audio of the eHealth Radio Network is now available in full on the Avalon Laser website.

„I really enjoyed telling eHealth Radio Network listeners about Avalon Laser, especially the patient experience,“ Dr. Tirgari said. „Patients come to Avalon Laser after learning about our wide range of services and opportunities to save money on them, but they come back again and again because of the quality of care. I was ecstatic to have the chance to describe the patient experience on-air.“

The interview with eHealth Radio Network also provided Dr. Tirgari an opportunity to discuss intense pulsed light (IPL) photofacial. Dr. Tirgari said that IPL photofacial is a versatile treatment option for wrinkles, blotchy skin, spider veins, unwanted freckles and other complexion issues resulting from sun exposure – a major source of „photo-aging“ in sunny Southern California.

Seasonality was another major theme of the interview. Dr. Tirgari commented that when it comes to „getting your body ready for the summer, it’s good to start now.“ By targeting excess hair, cellulite and other aesthetic complaints in the off-season, Dr. Tirgari said that patients can rest assured they will look good „when the bikinis come on and the clothes come off.“
Avalon Laser offers specials throughout the year, but Dr. Tirgari said that it’s important for patients not to sacrifice expertise for savings.

„The most important thing I would advise anyone who’s looking to improve their appearance or get any kind of cosmetic procedure is to make sure you choose [a practice] where you can actually meet the physician on-site and where you have a chance to talk to the doctor,“ Dr. Tirgari told eHealth Radio Network host Eric Michaels.

„In addition to the doctor’s credentials, the patient should have a certain level of comfort with their doctor,“ Dr. Tirgari continued. „[They should] be able to ask questions, be able to get their questions answered … and make sure they feel comfortable before undergoing the treatment.“

Dr. Tirgari’s interview with Eric Michaels is also available on the Dermatology and Skin Care channels of the eHealth Radio Network website.

About Avalon Laser

Thunder and Lightning Over Africa’s Eden

Thunder: An Elephant’s Journey Erik Daniel Shein & L. M. Reker

PENSACOLA, FL, February 22, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — With the resonating sound of Thunder, we’re making the world aware of the continuing problem in Africa’s only Eden. When Thunder: An Elephant’s Journey first began its conception, its creators had one goal in mind: to educate the world about the horrific reality elephants face every day as a prime candidate for poaching.

Many people know that elephant ivory is well sought after. What they don’t know is how this illegal trade has devastated the area of Gabon. According to Dr. Fiona Maisels of the Wildlife Conservation Society, „Comparing the area already surveyed in 2012/13 with the same area surveyed in 2004, suggests that between 44-77% of the elephants have been killed: in other words, that 11,100 elephants have been lost since 2004.“

These facts are staggering. Greed for ivory has become almost a sickness in our world. Dr. Richard Ruggiero has seen it first-hand with all the work he has done in the area to help protect elephants. „Dead elephants and seized ivory are the symptoms. Demand is the ailment.“ It seems that this illegal trade has come down to supply and demand and soon the supply will be gone. If it continues at this rate, there will be no elephants left for the generations to come and that is something we desperately want to change.

We created Thunder to be an ambassador for all elephants and to help inform the world of the current plight of these majestic creatures. We want his remarkable story to educate our children in the ongoing problem facing the forest elephants of Gabon. Our hope is that this series will continue to inspire our children for years to come and that they will become active participants in the protection and preservation of animals that are in danger of extinction. Awareness is the first step to making the change these animals drastically need. It is a stepping stone to creating an active dialogue with others, instead of sweeping it under the rug and avoiding the horrible reality of our time.

Thunder is a middle grade animal adventure book that is sure to be an instant classic. Thunder tells the story of a young elephant who is separated from his mother by poachers who are out to make a quick buck. This heartfelt tale will take its readers through every emotion imaginable, as Thunder makes his way across the jungles of central Africa with his newfound animal friends. The lessons he learns along the way help reinforce the preservation and protection of animals.

Thunder: An Elephant’s Journey is a trilogy that follows the life of Thunder. The first installment is Thunder: An Elephant’s Journey which released March 7th of this year. The second book is Thunder II: An Elephant’s Journey, Footprints in the Sand. In this book, we learn more about the after effects of poaching as well as dealing with deep personal loss. Thunder III: An Elephant’s Journey, Hope Haven is the final book in the series. In the third book, Thunder and his friends return to find new adventures in a world trying find the balance between destruction and preservation of animal lives.

Authors Erik Daniel Shein & L.M. Reker believe that it is important to teach our children that animals are important to our world and their preservation has a global impact on all of us. As active members of the Arkwatch Foundation, some of the proceeds from sales will go to the Arkwatch Foundation whose mission is to prevent the depletion of rare animal and plant species.

Mesothelioma Compensation Center Now Offers On-The-Spot Access To The Nation’s Most Skilled Mesothelioma Attorneys For Oil Production Or Pipeline Workers Diagnosed With Mesothelioma

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, „We are urging a a oil production or pipeline worker with mesothelioma to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 for on the spot access to the nation’s top lawyers for compensation results.

NEW YORK, NY, February 22, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, „We are now offering an oil production or oil/gas pipeline construction worker who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma on-the-spot access to some of the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys as that is exactly what they are going to need if the person with this rare cancer hopes to get properly compensated.

„As we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303, oil/gas production workers and pipeline workers who now have mesothelioma could get compensation that exceeds one million dollars–with the only catch being they need to have the nation’s very best attorneys assisting them.“ http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com

The reason an oil/gas production worker or pipeline worker/builder with mesothelioma could easily get one million dollars plus in compensation stems from their multiple exposures to asbestos at more than one oil/gas production field or oil/gas pipeline. Additionally, a construction worker could have been exposed to asbestos at an oil/gas production field or while building a pipeline in numerous states-such as:

* Texas
* North Dakota
* California
* Alaska
* Wyoming
* Oklahoma
* New Mexico
* Colorado
* Pennsylvania
* Louisiana

According to the Mesothelioma Compensation Center, „The biggest mistake any oil/gas production field worker or oil/gas pipeline worker with mesothelioma can make is hiring an inexperienced lawyer/law firm to attempt to handle a mesothelioma compensation claim.

„The mistake could literally cost the diagnosed person hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation they will never see, all because they hired an unskilled lawyer as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. Please aim high when it comes to hiring a mesothelioma attorney and call us for some of the nation’s most skilled legal experts when it comes to compensation for a diagnosed person in the oil/gas production field or oil/gas pipeline industry. The attorneys we suggest do not get paid unless there is a settlement.“ http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center specializes in assisting US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, public utility workers, hydro-electric workers, chemical plant workers, nuclear power plant workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, electricians, and welders who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. In most instances these people were exposed to asbestos during the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, a former oil/gas production worker or an oil/gas pipeline worker with mesothelioma could live in any state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, or Alaska.

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, „If you call us at 800-714-0303, we will see to it that you have on the spot access to the nation’s most skilled, and experienced mesothelioma attorneys, because these incredibly skilled legal experts consistently get the best financial compensation results for their clients on a nationwide basis.“ http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com

Christina Rubino Captures Aural Elements of Americana with Release of Album „Godspeed And Guns“

Singer-songwriter infuses rockabilly and punk-influenced ballads to deliver fearless and candid album release just in time for spring.

LOS ANGELES, CA, February 22, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Christina Rubino releases brand new album „Godspeed and Guns,“ showcasing her superb strumming and vocal abilities, evoking elements of blues, country, and the ultimate in singer-songwriter charm from someone who has lived through loss.

Now available on iTunes and other online music retailers, „Godspeed and Guns“ is enjoying widespread acclaim from many. The music that reviewers have cited as „musically beautiful“ and „impeccable storytelling“ will surely steal it’s own place in any listener’s heart. Tracks like „Down to the Sea at Daybreak“ offer buckets of palm-muted licks that are reminiscent of the way in which the Foo Fighters deliver their heavily-layered dose, but also possess the raw punk spirit of the Damn Mondays and War on Women.

„Christina Rubino can be likened to a female Johnny Cash with her folksy Americana rockabilly that moves and shakes you to the core,“ writes EatSleepBreatheMusic.com.

Christina’s style of music will undeniably have a wide-reaching appeal to the heavily tattooed individual who is leaning forward tuning up a hotrod, on down to the newly single city dweller who is fueled by angst over her last bad breakup. „Orbit“ is a track off of „Godspeed and Guns“ that really allows the listener to see Christina’s storyteller side, and she has the up close and personal performance-with-piano aura of Jeff Buckley and Greg Dulli of „Afghan Whigs“ clout.

About Christina Rubino

Acclaimed indie artist Christina Rubino brings a new feel to a classic genre. She began writing songs at the age of 17 and quickly realized her passion for music, performing the dual roles of vocalist and rhythm guitarist. In 2008, Rubino joined the all-female group Violator, a NYC based Depeche Mode cover band, as the lead guitarist. In 2009 she transitioned to all-female trio Josephine, before going on to write and record her debut solo record, Alive From The Scrap Heap, in 2014. In 2016 she released Godspeed & Guns, which is lush with addictive progressions, soulful vocals, and an alternative edge. The record boasts the aesthetic of indie rock anthems. Though the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds it all together, much like a concept album would. Most importantly, the record never loses sight of the emotional platform great songs are built from. Christina has received rave feedback and reviews from the likes of The Nashville Music Guide, Indie Artist Alliance, Pop Dose Magazine, The Examiner, and more.
