The Southeast Regional Conference will take place in Orlando on July 29-30

ORLANDO, FL, July 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Plasticity Brain Centers of Orlando (PBCO) joins the Carrick Institute, as a co- sponsor of the American Chiropractic Association Sports Council, 2017 Southeast Regional Mini-Conference event in Orlando, Florida on July 29-30. This is the first year that the ACA Sports Council will hold 4 mini-conferences around the country to address key topics, important to those medical & health professionals treating athletes across the country.

This particular mini-conference will focus on neurology and concussion. With some 1.6 – 3.8 million sports-related concussions occurring in the United States annually, according to the latest research data from the National Institutes of Health, and almost 50% of these going unreported due to a variety of reasons including, lack of knowledge concerning symptoms and an unwillingness to be removed from competition, these 4 regional events become a critical must.

The Southeast Regional Mini-Conference in Orlando brings together chiropractic clinicians that are on the cutting edge of treatments for neurological injuries, to share their experiences and knowledge of the latest advances and rehabilitation techniques. Because concussions and traumatic brain injuries are at the forefront of concern in all levels of sport – from the PeeWees to the Professionals, understanding how such injuries affect: the Vestibular System, Autonomic System, and Musculoskeletal System is essential.

Both PBCO and the Carrick Institute have a significant track record of success treating some of today’s most celebrated athletes, not just those in the United States, but those at the top of their game from countries around the world. In many cases, athletes who have gone through every form of traditional treatment make their way to one of these two treatment centers – with transformative results.

Plasticity Brain Centers of Orlando is a leader in non-invasive neurorehabilitation, and the team is comprised of board-certified experts, therapists, doctors and neuroscience specialists. Our clinicians are seasoned functional neurologists, trained and mentored personally by the leading specialist in the field, Dr. Ted Carrick, founder of the Carrick Institute.

Our specialists provide a revolutionary, research based approach to neurological rehabilitation, using cutting-edge treatment and technological advances to help patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries, degenerative brain diseases, and developmental disorders. They are focused on improving neurological function and performance in as little as five days.

„Interdisciplinary collaboration is critical to the successful resolution of post concussive syndromes,“ says Dr. Antonucci, who also serves on the American Board of Chiropractic Specialties. „The opportunity to sponsor this event aligned perfectly with Plasticity Brain Centers‘ fundamental principles of education, patient care, and collaboration. We are here to support local doctors in any way possible.“

Five Great Reasons to Own a Football Championship Ring

A bowl ring can always bring you good memories of the football team which you had supported. A championship bowl ring is not just bring you a cool looking.

SHANGHAI, CHINA, July 29, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Here in the U.S, it’s safe to say that we take our football very seriously indeed, and why wouldn’t we? The NFL is arguably the most competitive sports league in the world, and certainly the country, and as any keen football fan will tell you, nothing beats the buzz and excitement surrounding Super bowl Sunday. The great thing about the Super Bowl, and indeed, the NFL in general, is that we get to see the best of the best competing, and, although there are certain favourites such as the New England Patriots, thanks to the wild card picks, anything can happen on Super Bowl Sunday.

Made up of 32 teams divided equally between the American Football Conference (AFC) and the National Football Conference (NFC) the NFL showcases the best of the best from each state. If you’re a keen fan of the NFL, and happen to be, say, a Dallas Cowboys fan, you simply must ensure that you head on over to and check out the vast selection of football championship rings on offer. Sticking with the Cowboys as an example, any Cowboys fan will instantly fall in love with the stunning Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl rings and led light up shoes on offer. Football is about showing your team how passionate you are about them and showing them your support, and what better way to support your team, whilst looking great in the process, than by proudly wearing cowboys super bowl rings. Here are a few great reasons to own a football championship ring.

Show support for your team – Any Dallas Cowboys fan will agree that the stunning selection of replica Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl rings, are the ultimate display of support for the team you know and love. Whether you’re from Dallas, whether you’re a fan of the patriots, a fan of the Seahawks, or any other team for that matter, the championship rings provide you with the perfect opportunity to show the team you know and love, exactly how much you support them. Just as people wear replica football jerseys, hats, coats, led light up shoes, and more besides, people also are now getting into the whole championship ring scene more than ever before. Put simply, if you’re a football fan and want to get behind your team and proudly let the world know that you’re a fan, a championship ring simply must be added to your football collection.

They look luxurious and stylish – When we talk about Cowboys super bowl rings, we aren’t talking about cheap and fake-looking rings that look like they would be more at home in Home Bargains store. No, we’re talking about pieces of jewellery that are stylish, luxurious, fashionable, and incredibly desirable as well. Made from quality Zinc Alloy, along with crystal stone, the rings themselves have the emblem of your favourite team etched into them. Each ring is precision-made with love and expertise, all by hand by highly skilled craftsmen, and weighs in at a whopping 60g. To create each ring, skilled craftsmen must spend 28 days putting the ring through 14 separate processes. The end result is a true work of art that any Football fan would instantly fall in love with.

Comes with a stunning display case – Whilst it is all well and good wearing your ring, sometimes there will be times when you would rather admire your ring from afar, and thanks to you can. You see, each ring comes complete with a decorative wooden display case on hinges that you can use to display and exhibit your ring like it was a work of art in your local art gallery. This is fantastic because the wooden cases themselves are designed to sit virtually anywhere in your house, so whether you choose to sit it on your mantel above the fire, or perhaps in your man cave, your championship ring will take pride of place wherever it sits, and thanks to the stunning display case, it will look more beautiful than ever.

Remember the good times – As any football fan will tell you, football isn’t just a game, it is a way of life and if you’re a fan of the sport, you will of course have certain memories that you will want to look back on and remember forever. With a championship replica ring, that is exactly what you can do. As a Cowboys fan for example, your Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl rings will remind you of the good times, like when say, the Cowboys defeated the Steelers to win the Super Bowl back in 1996. Whilst things haven’t exactly run as smoothly since then, any keen Cowboys fan can glance back at their 1996 replica championship ring and remember the time when their beloved football team last won the Super Bowl.

Makes a fantastic gift – Whilst there is absolutely nothing wrong with spoiling yourself and treating yourself to a championship ring, you may wish to lavish a loved one with a replica Super Bowl ring instead. Whether it’s for Christmas, a birthday, or just because, if you have a football fan in your life and are not sure what to purchase for them, they would absolutely be over the moon if you were to buy a Super Bowl ring for them. Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl rings are incredibly popular amongst cowboys fans, as are Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl rings amongst Seahawks fans, and so on. No matter whom the recipient of your gift supports, they would be absolutely over the moon if they saw you had treated them to a stunning ring.

So that brings proceedings to a halt. Before we wrap things up however, and leave you to rush on over to …read more

The Next Generation of Blockchain Technology is Finally Here – Gold Digital Coin (GDC) is About to Revolutionize Crypto Currency

Gold Digital Coin Project are proud to announce the release of their pre-mined coins for global distribution

HELSINKI, FINLAND, July 28, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Gold Digital Coin Project is pleased to enter the initial distribution phase of their digital currency by delivering pre-mined coins equally to the 7 members of the GDC Foundation, who are based in USA, Brazil, England, Germany, India, China and Australia.

„We are extremely happy to be releasing the GDC coin across the different global regions through our various Foundation partners. This is part of fulfilling our objective of equal global distribution in order to ensure that no persons or entity will ever be able to control or manipulate the GDC blockchain and the coin’s value,“ said Mikko Antilla, GDC’s Founder.

GDC spent many months searching for the right distribution partners from each region to join their Foundation since they wanted to find individuals who believed in their vision and who agreed to adhere to their principles. They entered the mining stage of the project on August 2016 and completed it on June 2017, and they are now ready to enter the initial distribution phase of their plan.

The GDC was developed to provide peer-to-peer transactions which are fast and anonymous, as well as with the provision of providing a hyper-secure transaction process, but what really makes it stand out from the other digital currencies is that it will be far more stable than other crypto currencies due to the fact that it is linked to gold.

„Each of our 7 partners have been part of the Foundation since the very beginning and one of the reasons that they invested in the project was due to a strong belief in our concept of a digital currency which is more stable due to it being linked with a composite of the world’s Gold Indexes,“ said Mikko Antilla, GDC’s Founder.

Each of the 7 Foundation members claims to have a clear vision of the best application of the coin within their specific region, which includes peer-to-peer lending between individuals, crowd funding for start-ups with strong potential, and the ever-growing sharing economy. They have all signed up to a unique social charter which incorporates using the digital coin to improve lives globally, and they have also guaranteed that they will provide at least one Trading Platform within their own region to handle the GDC.

We look forward to the next step in the evolution of this new digital currency and we have been assured that public mining of the Gold Digital Coin will be launched in September.

The Gold Digital Coin Project was founded in Finland by a group of technological wunderkinds who passionately believe in the life changing possibilities of Blockchain technology but sought to address and fix the problems the technology is facing. GDC is the answer to current crypto-currencies price instability, network security, transaction and hash-rate times, and practical application. The GDC Project is a decentralized open-source Blockchain-based digital currency directly linked to a composite of the global Gold Indexes, providing a new level of trust, stability and anonymity in peer-to-peer transaction and Smart digital contracts.
