UrologyWeb Releases a report on the “Ten Shocking Fallacies and the Prostate Cancer Surgery Scam”











Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2013

“The real story about prostate cancer awareness, cancer detection and its surgical treatment is that the prostate cancer industry is a bogus industry capitalizing on men made vulnerable by a prostate cancer label, then deceiving and exploiting them. 75% of prostate cancers are the so-called Gleason 6 (3+3) prostate “cancers” which usually present no health risk, do not behave like cancers, need no robotic surgery and calling this disease a “cancer” is absolutely unjustified”, said Bert Vorstman MD, MS, FAAP, FRACS, FACS a leading specialist in the management of localized prostate cancer employing active surveillance monitoring as well as minimally invasive and focal therapy treatment techniques.

Said Dr Vorstman, “The ill-conceived, irreversible and high-risk robotic prostatectomy has generated more debilitation and dissatisfaction than after any other surgical procedure performed on man ever. This concern is especially shocking when 75% of prostate “cancers” pose no health risk to man and treating these men on the pretext of “saving” their lives is an outrageous scam. Only the high-risk prostate cancers demand treatment but not with surgery”.

Dr. Bert Vorstman, a Coral Springs Florida urologist with over 30 years of experience in managing localized prostate cancer has just listed the 10 most shocking fallacies offered by urologists in the deceptive practice of promoting the debilitating radical surgery/robotic prostatectomy. His article, “10 Shocking Fallacies and The Prostate Cancer Surgery Scam” has been posted on his Uro Health blog (http://www.urologyweb.com/10-shocking-fallacies-and-the-prostate-cancer-surgery-scam/).

Dr Vorstman added, “The supreme fallacy is the contention that the robotic prostatectomy offers cure.” Dr Vorstman continued, “In fact, the toxic and crippling radical surgery/robotic prostatectomy treatment has never saved significant numbers of lives and only resulted in great harm. This surgical treatment has always been the main offender in the gross over treatment of the very common Gleason 6 (3+3) prostate “cancer” and the squandering of precious healthcare dollars. Furthermore, Dr Vorstman added, “The promotion of the robotic prostatectomy by the prostate cancer industry for treating a “cancer” which is not even a health risk has been one of the biggest medical deceptions ever perpetrated by physicians under the guise of “modern” medicine. Unfortunately, this deception has been enabled by a surgical culture jaundiced by egos, tradition and surgical treatment philosophy but absolutely devoid of evidence based medicine data”.

Dr Vorstman’s concerns have been endorsed by the recent embarrassing USPSTF report on prostate cancer screening (http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/prostatecancerscreening/prostatefinalrs.htm) using the unreliable PSA and the treatment of these screen-detected prostate cancers. This review underscored the great harm incurred and the lack of significant numbers of lives saved.

Dr Vorstman’s passion in medicine is the empowerment of men and their wives/partners about localized prostate cancer, management options and health choices. He is a dedicated patient advocate and an outspoken critic of over-diagnosis and over-treatment of the favorable-risk Gleason 6 (3+3) prostate “cancer”. His powerful messages and insights regarding prostate cancer reach many people through his website and blog, http://www.urologyweb.com/.

Contract Engineering Services Offers Gratis Help to Inventors











Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) February 25, 2014

Contract Engineering Services, an engineering design, build and consulting firm, has announced a new initiative to assist independent inventors.

“CES has long assisted independent inventors with their engineering needs, but now we want to ‘step up’ that assistance”, said Steven Pedersen, P.E., Principal of CES. “We want more inventors to know about us and how we can help them bring their ideas to reality”, Pedersen said.

“Our vision at CES is ‘Support for Innovators’”, said Pedersen. “A great product idea will always need engineering know-how to transform that idea into practical form. But often the independent inventor does not know where to turn to get such help”. Pedersen noted that inventors become intimidated by the technical details, and that “patent attorneys are very expensive and cannot provide the engineering side”.

“Unfortunately, independent inventors often turn to ‘invention submission’ scam outfits”, says Pedersen. “These outfits exploit the naiveté of the independent inventor, draining the inventor’s funds while keeping him/her ‘on the hook’ with flattery and false expectations. CES thinks this is an outrageous waste of inventor resources, and we want to offer a better alternative”, he said.

The CES offer, says Pedersen, is “up to two hours of gratis consultation to any independent inventor that contacts us through our website. We will sign their NDA, and then listen to their invention details. We will be brutally honest with them. If their idea lacks sufficient economic or technical merit, we’ll advise them. If it does have merit, we’ll provide up to two hours of our time, gratis, to get their idea fleshed out”, including IP definition, patent research, concept drawings, and strategy consultation.

Said Pedersen, “We believe that our extraordinary offer is a ‘win-win’, because it provides a no-cost way for the independent inventor to get the objective advice and technical help they need, early in the invention process, while providing CES the opportunity to prove our value to independent inventors and expand our client base”.

About Contract Engineering Services –

For over twenty years, Contract Engineering Services has provided electromechanical engineering design, analysis, and CAD support services for a range of business and independent inventor clients working in manufacturing, technology, and research.

Better Business Bureau Consolidates Operations for Central and South Alabama

Better Business Bureau Consolidates Operations for Central and South Alabama











David C. Smitherman is President & CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving Central & South Alabama


Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) February 21, 2014

Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Central Alabama & the Wiregrass announces the joining of its Birmingham-based organization with that of Better Business Bureau of South Alabama, based in Mobile. The consolidated BBB serving Central & South Alabama will maintain offices in Birmingham, Mobile and Dothan.

“This is mutually beneficial for both organizations, for the business community and for consumers,” says David C. Smitherman, President/CEO of the newly merged group. “The result is a BBB with almost 4,300 accredited business members serving 50 Alabama counties.”

Through enhanced technology and combined resources, the organization will bring new opportunities for businesses throughout the service area.

“Our mission is to build marketplace trust in the communities where we operate,” Smitherman said. “We are very pleased to join forces with BBB in Mobile to bring greater value to our members and the community at large. We can do that better and with increased efficiencies as one organization rather than two.”

By linking all North American BBB data together, Accredited Businesses generally come to the forefront in most Internet searches.

“The result is that BBB members, due to our huge Internet presence, have a greater opportunity to show higher in searches,” Smitherman said. “Helping consumers find and build relationships with trustworthy businesses is what drives our organization.”

BBB is the leading organization in the United States and Canada for helping consumers find businesses, brands and charities they can trust. It also monitors and alerts the public of scams and offers resources for the prevention of identity theft. In 2013, the Birmingham office fielded almost one million inquiries from consumers and businesses from across the globe.

BBB monitors scams based on reports from consumers, law enforcement, federal agencies and numerous other sources, including recent alerts concerning fake Sochi Winter Olympic merchandise and warnings of scams concerning the Affordable Care Act.

Among its multitude of benefits, BBB offers complaint resolution, arbitration and mediation services when there are valid complaints over business transactions. The BBB Educational Foundation, through business grants and local government contracts, provides programs to educate Alabama consumers about fraud, scams, identity theft and to aid in financial literacy.

To be accredited by BBB, a business must meet stringent standards to assure that it treats consumers fairly and honestly. It also accredits charitable organizations in an effort to ensure that donations are being made to valid groups.

“As the largest business ethics organization in the state, we are focused on building marketplace trust and driving consumers to trustworthy businesses,” Smitherman added.

More information about BBB and services that it offers are available at http://www.bbb.org

For more than 100 years, Better Business Bureau, a not-for-profit organization, has been helping consumers find businesses, brands and charities they can trust. In 2012, consumers turned to BBB 124 million times for Business Reviews on more than 4.5 million companies and Charity Reports on 11,000 charities, all available for free at bbb.org. The Council of Better Business Bureaus is the umbrella organization for 112 local, independent BBBs across the U.S. and Canada, as well as home to its national programs on dispute resolution and industry self-regulation.

PhoneNumber.us.org Creating Anti-Scam Reports For Their Customers












Denver, CO (PRWEB) March 14, 2014

PhoneNumber.us.org is set to launch a new section of their website that will help people learn how not to become a phone scam victim, the company said yesterday.

“Since the invention of the telephone, scam artists have used it to take advantage of people,” a PhoneNumber.us.org spokesman said. “That’s just as true today as it was when Ma Bell was in charge of telecommunications. But people can avoid becoming a scam victim, and we want to help with that. We think that we owe it to our customers.”

The anti-scam articles will be published in a special members’ area of the PhoneNumber.us.org site, he said. Some of the more common ways scam artists operate will also be posted on the company blog.

“The thing is that most of these types of scams are easy to avoid,” he said. “Scam artists only win when the victim doesn’t know how they operate. So, we are going to beat them at their own game and show people how they can easily avoid becoming a scam victim.”

PhoneNumber.us.org will break down each type of phone scam they discover, and walk customers through how and why they work. Then it will describe how to react to the scam artist in order to defeat them, he said.

“By the time all of our articles are up, there will be no reason for our customers to ever fall for a phone scam again,” he said.

About PhoneNumber.us.org:

PhoneNumber.us.org is the top online resource for phone number look ups and reverse look ups.

PropertyOwner.us.org Launches Anti-Real Estate Ripoff Initiative












Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 14, 2014

PropertyOwner.us.org is starting a major educational initiative to help people avoid becoming the victims of ripoff artists, the company said yesterday.

“The real estate industry is full of people who want to turn honest consumers into ripoff victims,” a PropertyOwner.us.org spokesman said. “What we want to do is stop them in their tracks. There is no reason why ripoff artists should be allowed to thrive, and we believe we can help consumers avoid them.”

PropertyOwner.us.org will publish a series of articles in the members’ area of their site explaining exactly how different real estate ripoff scams work, and what consumers can do to protect themselves from them, he said.

“The truth is that ripoff artists work by taking advantage of what people don’t know,” he said. “But once you understand how and why a given ripoff scheme works, you can see the red flags and avoid it. That’s what we hope to accomplish.”

The articles are being put together with the help of real estate and law enforcement experts, he said.

“Once we have started setting them up on our site, we’ll post the most relevant articles on our social media channels and our blog,” he said. “We want to help protect as many people as possible from ripoff artists.”

The idea for the articles came from the customer service staff hearing nightmare stories about real estate ripoffs, he said.

PropertyOwner.us.org allows consumers to look up the value of any home or property in North America. View public records such as code violations, home inspections, previous owners, current market value and more. Get more information about a current residence or a property you are interested in purchasing with this extensive property database. Visit PropertyOwner.us.org to chat with a live representative, call 1-866-577-5365, or email Manager(at)PropertyOwner(dot)us(dot)org with any questions or concerns.

Know Your Net: Internet Safety Education Campaign Launches

Know Your Net: Internet Safety Education Campaign Launches











Rep. Marino Speaks at the Know Your Net Campaign Kickoff


Washington, DC (PRWEB) September 19, 2013

The Coalition Against Domain Name Abuse (CADNA) and the Council of Better Business Bureaus (CBBB) Wednesday announced a public awareness campaign to educate businesses and consumers about Internet safety, particularly with the expected addition of more than one thousand top-level domains – the text to the right of the dot in a web address.

The Know Your Net Campaign consists of communicating best practices tips through the websites and social media channels of the campaign sponsors and other interested parties: on Twitter, follow #KnowYourNet. The campaign will also feature data from CADNA’s cybersquatting research report, and stories from organizations that deal with cybersquatting.

“Education about Internet safety is always pertinent,” said CADNA President Josh Bourne. “But it is especially important now because of the massive Internet expansion that will occur over the next year when over a thousand new top-level domains are added to the web. Restricted-access, top-level domains like .BBB, .AARP, and .PHARMACY and closed domains such as .MARRIOTT will provide safe online experiences. But with potentially millions of new websites in completely open-access spaces, it will be harder for users to identify safe, trusted, legitimate sites from which to purchase goods and services and obtain information.

“The Know Your Net Campaign will raise public awareness about the dangers and pitfalls in this vast new tract of Internet real estate and also bring greater attention to some of the promise which will come from trusted spaces and smart new business models. It will help businesses maintain the integrity of their brands and the safety of their customers online and help promote rewarding online experiences for Internet users.”

“CBBB is pleased to co-sponsor and promote Know Your Net with CADNA, and looks forward to a campaign that will help consumers and businesses of all sizes better protect themselves from the dangers of cybersquatting,” said Anjali Hansen, Deputy General Counsel at the Council of Better Business Bureaus.

Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa., Vice Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet, said at the Know Your Net Campaign kickoff that it is important to raise public awareness on cybersquatting and new generic top-level domains (gTLDs), and that he looks forward to potential hearings in the future. He also expressed the need for Congress to hear from the public, including brand owners, since the public is often the first to see issues on the horizon.

In addition to CBBB and CADNA, other participants in the campaign are the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), which will mark October as National Cyber Security Awareness month, and AARP.

In the next year, approximately 1,400 new gTLDs will become available on the Internet in addition to the 22 commonly used now, such as .COM, .EDU, and .ORG. Along with the 2,500 percent increase in gTLDs, thousands upon thousands of new websites will be created in each gTLD’s second-level domain space, to the left of the dot in an Internet address.

A major part of cybercrime involves cybersquatted websites that lure unsuspecting Internet users into a false sense of security by incorporating well-known trademarks into domain names that host Pay-Per-Click links, phishing scams, malware, or peddle counterfeit goods.

Recent studies report that cybercrime could cost the global economy as much as $ 500 billion annually and potentially result in the loss of 500,000 U.S. jobs alone.

CADNA is also going to launch a letter-writing campaign to key Members of Congress urging reform of the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) to strengthen deterrents against cybersquatters and other trademark infringers.
