Interactive Guerrilla Theater Production Killing Rick Makes The Alleys Of Prague Its Stage /EIN News/ Prague, April 27, 2009 - Gun shots ring out in the dark alleys of Prague propelling guests into the seedy under world in this one and a half-hour murder mystery.  So begins Killing Rick by CP Antics, an interactive cloak and dagger guerrilla theater production in English that draws participants into a web of intrigue spun across Old Town.  Unsuspecting guests in groups of 6 to 10 are directed to a secret location every half-hour from 9pm till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays in June.  Beginning their adventure on what seems to be a corny ghost tour, guests soon find themselves on a mission to solve a murder that will take them by foot to shady locations.  Throughout the journey, sketchy characters played by improv-trained actors, divulge secrets that adds twists and turns to the plot.  Tickets maybe purchased for 400CZK online at tickets.cpantics.com.  Cara Clark, artistic director and co-founder of CP Antics, says: At CP Antics we strive to design productions that are unlike anything found in a theater. Our goal is for greater audience engagement by staging the action in real-world settings rather than in traditional theater spaces. We send our audience on an actual journey through the streets of Prague to become immersed into a different world.  Our goal is to make sure our guests are not passive viewers, but take on an active role, guiding the performance by creating dialogue and interacting with the actors.  Matthew Pflueger, producer and co-founder of CP Antics, says: The streets of Old Town Prague at night reminded me of film-noir.  Building on this natural setting and utilizing characters that are corrupt, cynical, and desperate, we designed a plot that would invoke the violent passions of that cinematic era.  We invite audience members to take a walk in this dark and fatalistic world.  For more information about Killing Rick or CP Antics please go to cpantics.com.  Established in 2008, CP Antics started as an experimental exploration of guerrilla theater in Prague. Our products are dedicated to developing spontaneous interaction between groups of people and actors in order to shape the reality of the production, make discovery fun again, and create a unique theatrical experience. CP Antics offers a range of interactive productions that strive to capture the lesser known aspects and flavor of Prague.  ENDS Contacts Cara Clark,  Aristic Director CP Antics 420.725.847.922 .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  Matthew Pflueger, Producer CP Antics 420.725.847.921 .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)  http://www.cpantics.com

Deadly Mexican Influenza Making Its Way North? Seven in U.S. Ill from Mutated Flu Strain Human Contact Spreading Mutated Strain of Swine Flu; CDC Expects Number of Cases to Rise; Get Complete Coverage at Healthcare Industry Today WASHINGTON, April 24 - /EIN NEWS/ An unusual strain of swine flu has infected seven people Texas and Southern California, and the CDC believes that, unlike many animal-borne illnesses, this virus can spread from person to person.  According to the CDC’s Nancy Cox, the virus appears to be a mixture of the swine, avian and human strains of influenza. This mutant virus cropping up near the Mexican border comes on the heels of a mystery respiratory illness in Mexico that has baffled the health community. More than 20 people have died from influenza in Mexico, forcing Mexico City to cancel school for millions of children.  Is the world watching the start of a flu pandemic? And its starting point: North America? If not, the mutation of such viruses and spread within the human population is cause enough for alarm.  Learn more about this breaking story from the EIN News team on these news sections:—Latest news from Healthcare Industry Today - http://health.einnews.com—Latest swine flu pandemic news - http://health.einnews.com/news/swine-flu-pandemic—Latest H1N1 flu virus news - http://health.einnews.com/news/h1n1-flu-virus—Latest Mexico flu news - http://health.einnews.com/news/mexico-flu  Are you getting the full story about the impact of this strain of swine flu and what’s being done to combat it?

/EIN News/ Colorado homeowners are urged to conduct radon testing in their homes.  Over one-third of all Greater Denver area homes are at risk of having dangerous levels of this gas.  When elevated levels are detected, remediation efforts can be made for reduction of the gas (radon mitigation.) http://www.MitigationSystem.com  Some of the Colorado town that have been affected by radon are Denver, Littleton, Fort Collins, Parker, Arvada, Englewood, Loveland, Boulder, Broomfield, Aurora, Longmont, and Castle Rock. When homes are found to have radon levels of 4.0 or above, radon gas removal systems can be installed to correct the problem. http://www.RadonMitigation.us  Air Quality Control is one of America’s largest radon removal abatement companies. Their experienced crew utilizes the latest technology to design effective radon reduction systems that draw the radon out from below the foundation of the building or house. These systems are known as radon mitigation systems.  Radon problems are very common throughout central and northern Colorado. All homes should be tested. When elevated levels are detected, they can be reduced.    Because any Colorado home could have a dangerous radon level, testing for this poisonous gas should be a routine part of home ownership. You cannot see it, smell it, or taste it so the only way to know if you have a problem is to test. The age of the home or type of construction have nothing to do with radon entry.  Every home should be tested. http://www.RadonTesting.org  According to Air Quality Control, “Radon problems are very common throughout the state. Colorado residents should conduct a radon test every two years. If they find that their levels are 4 or above, the problem is fixable.” Air Quality’s radon removal crew installs between 10 and 20 of these systems each week.  Radon “hot spots” have been found in Denver, Littleton, Boulder, Broomfield, Aurora, Erie, Evergreen, Colorado Springs, Commerce City, Morrison, Elizabeth, Golden, Louisville, Westminster, Lafayette, and Monument. Radon gas removal systems are very common in those areas.  Testing for radon is easy and doesn’t cost a lot of money. Test kits can be purchased from hardware stores and health departments. There are also electronic radon testing units available. These monitors are very accurate and are good for longer term testing. http://www.RadonMonitor.com  When radon levels are 4.0 or above it is strongly recommended that a radon abatement system be installed in the home. These systems consist of PVC piping that extends from the lowest floor of the foundation (i.e. basement floor) to the outside of the house. A small vacuum fan is installed in an inconspicuous location inline with the pipe. When the system is activated, the radon gas is drawn out from below the home and vented to the outdoor air. http://www.RadonReduction.org  Elevated radon levels have been found in most Colorado counties including Jefferson, Arapahoe, Denver, Adams, Elbert, Douglas, Boulder, Gilpin, Clear Creek, Summit, Park County, and Teller. The Surgeon General suggests that every home should be tested for radon gas. http://www.RadonMitigationDenver.com  Denver Colorado Radon Remediation Company:  Air Quality Control Agency installs radon mitigation systems throughout Colorado. Their experienced crew specializes in providing radon gas removal solutions and radon measurement options.

Department of Health (NYSDOH) Cited for Stifling Breakthrough Medical Technology   /EIN News/ New York - April 8, 2009 - The U.S. Department of Labor, Washington, DC, and the NYS Department of Labor, Albany, were alerted to actions of the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH), impeding the research and development of innovative medical technologies.  According to Gerard Sunnen, MD, past president and director of research for Medizone International, Inc., the DOH prevented a landmark study from proceeding to completion. Details about this incident may be found in press releases entitled, New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) stops a world-first U.S.- Egyptian collaborative study on hepatitis C and blood ozonation.  In a conjoint agreement, the Egyptian Ministry of Health, the National Research=2 0Centre (NRC) in Cairo, and Medizone, contracted to find solutions for Egypt’s huge public health problem: hepatitis C. Indeed, Egypt, by far, today has the highest prevalence in the world for this potentially fatal disease afflicting up to 8 million of its citizens. In the U.S. about 4 million are affected.  Ozone is increasingly studied around the world for its potential medical applications. Over 3000 municipal water purification systems worldwide capitalize on ozone’s remarkable property for inactivating all manner of bacteria, viruses and fungi. Applying this unique member of the oxygen family to wound healing in humans - and animals - was reported decades ago; but it is only recently that technologies capable of properly manufacturing and delivering ozone for medical uses have been developed.  Applied topically and enclosed in specially configured envelopes, ozone-oxygen mixtures can rid wounds of pathogens and stimulate circulation. Ideal candidates for this therapy are diabetic and pressure skin ulcers, lesions due venous insufficiency, poorly- healing surgical wounds, and burns.  The Egyptian study, on the other hand, sought to explore ozone’s reported stimulation of immune functions, when administered at extremely low doses. In hepatitis C this would translate to a reduced viral load and improved liver enzyme profiles. Interest for this approach also has to do with its lower cost compared to current therapies, Dr. Sunnen said.      Reasons for the NYSDOH’s stopping the hepatitis C study are anybody’s conjecture. The idea that a state agency can directly meddle into the corporate affairs of a public company and essentially halt its operations is surprising, and frankly somewhat disturbing, Dr. Sunnen said, adding, However relevant to the equation, it may be enlightening to realize that the markets for hepatitis C medications and for wound healing therapies are simply huge, and the tendency is for protecting them.  The completion of the hepatitis study would have paved the way for the U.S. to become a world leader in ozone-based medical technologies, Dr. Sunnen emphasized. As of now, Germany, Russia, Japan, Italy and Brazil are far in the lead. Furthermore, upon the study’s completion, planning was well under way to greatly expand our manufacturing capacities. This would have meant the creation of numerous jobs.  Dr. Sunnen, now president of Ozonics International, LLC, whose presentation at an upcoming international congress on ozone-based medical therapies in Spain will attempt to promote U.S. interests, states, Let us hope that we can catch up, and at least partner evenly with other countries for the future development of medical ozone technologies; and let us pray that we will not encounter further impediments to our progress.  For more information: Gerard Sunnen, M.D. President, Ozonics International, LLC 200 East 33 Street New York, NY 10016
