Seattle, Wash. (PRWEB) April 16, 2015
TisBest Philanthropy, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a better world through gifts of charity, is thrilled to announce Simeon Cathey, Co-Founder and CEO of Content Panda as its newest board member.
Simeon has a long history with TisBest as one of the original developers of the TisBest Philanthropy charity gift card platform and will join the board of directors effective immediately.
After I left the SharePoint team to start a private cloud business, I had an idea around connecting people and businesses to an easier online experience for both personal and corporate giving. This was during the dawn of the gift card before the term Corporate Social Responsibility existed. It was fun to bring the infrastructure of this idea to life, said Simeon Cathey, Co-Founder & CEO of Content Panda.
To then step back and watch over the years how TisBest founder Erik Marks and the team have expanded our original idea has been amazing. I couldnt be happier to come back to the TisBest fold to support its quest to inspire and create a better world through gifts of charity.
TisBest Philanthropy created charity gift cards in 2007 and since then has raised millions of dollars for charities through these unique gifts. The organization focuses on educating individuals and businesses about the many benefits of giving. Programs such as DiscoverGiving and the Better World Radio podcast help expand the organizations reach and spread the message that anyone, no matter their age or economic status, can become a philanthropist.
I am thrilled to have Simeon back as part of the TisBest team. With his long-time Microsoft history and as CEO of three successful startup technology companies, I watched his success, leadership and entrepreneurial enthusiasm grow and expand over the years. Simeons incredible skills in design, web and e-commerce are going to be a great asset to our board discussions. On a personal note, Simeon and I are enjoying reconnecting about our shared history and common goals regarding making the world a better place, said Erik Marks, founder of TisBest Philanthropy.

Elasto Proxy, custom-fabricator of industrial rubber products, is announcing help for manufacturers who want to learn whether cold bonding is the right splicing technique for their custom rubber gaskets. As Elasto Proxy explains in an on-line article and video, there are many factors to consider.
The article, Cold Bonding for Custom Gaskets, is available via the Elasto Proxy website. The video is embedded in the article, and also appears on YouTube.
Cold Bonding vs. Hot Splicing
Cold offers important advantages, but its not right for every sealing application. For example, although cold splicing can be used with corners that include odd angles, its not recommended for custom gaskets that will be exposed to high temperatures or outdoor environments.
Hot splicing techniques produce custom gaskets with stronger corners, but not all sealing applications require this level of performance. Hot splicing is also more expensive than cold bonding. Glued gaskets, as cold-bonded gaskets are also called, require no special tooling and cure at ambient temperatures.

Elasto Proxy specializes in the design and custom fabrication of specialty seals, thermal and acoustic insulation, vibration dampening products and materials, EMI shielding, and other high-quality rubber and plastic parts.

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) April 01, 2015
Its true that Hispanic women and Latinas experience a lower rate of breast cancer than their non-Hispanic white counterparts.
Unfortunately, Latinas who do develop breast cancer are often besieged by more aggressive forms of the disease, and are nearly twice as likely to succumb from it, according to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
To help Hispanic women and their families get the information they need to understand their risk, get screened and make healthy choices, the HealthyHispanicLiving.com website continues the final month of its 90-day breast cancer awareness in April.
The HealthyHispanicLiving.com (HHL) A Passionate Pursuit of Prevention campaign focuses on educating Latinas and their families to help improve these outcomes, in partnership with City of Hope, Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), Latinas Contra Cancer, and ThinkNow Research. Throughout April, site visitors will find excellent resources, articles and videos about prevention, mammograms, genetic testing, and beneficial lifestyle choices, such as good nutrition and exercise. They can read about the latest clinical findings, and about women living with and surviving the disease.
Overcoming barriers to improved outcomes
According to BCRF, a campaign co-sponsor, Latinas are more likely to succumb to breast cancer than their non-Hispanic counterparts for several reasons:
Socioeconomic status Despite increased breast cancer screening across all racial and ethnic groups, Hispanic women are still less likely to be diagnosed with early stage breast cancer than non-Hispanic women. In part, thats because socioeconomics impact healthcare access, early detection and treatment. Latinas, for example, receive less frequent mammograms and less timely follow up in cases of suspicious mammograms, according to BCRF. Education, in part, can help improve related outcomes.
Obesity Obesity is associated with an increased risk of several cancers, including post-menopausal breast cancer. Again, this risk factor disproportionately affects Hispanic women. In spite of increased obesity rates across all racial/ethnic groups in recent years, Hispanic women still remain more likely to be overweight or obese than non-Hispanic women, research has shown. However, overweight postmenopausal women who lose weight can reduce their risk of breast cancer.
Genetics: Latinas also remain at risk for gene mutations specific to the Hispanic population, which may lead to more virulent, early-onset forms of breast cancer. Researchers at City of Hope have traced some of these mutations to Spanish settlers in Latin America around 500 years ago. Education and genetic testing can help effected Hispanic women understand their risk, and gain the early awareness they need to act strategically.
Improving breast cancer outcomes for Hispanic women and Latinas will require a significant effort to increase related education, awareness and testing.
By visiting the HHL website, Latinas can begin to learn more about how important it is to take care of themselves, in addition to their families, to live a full and happy life.
About Healthy Hispanic Living
As the first preventive care online educational platform targeted to U.S. Hispanics, HHL aims to guide Hispanics to live healthier lives and to ensure preventive care engagement, accountability and self-advocacy by providing solutions and changing the conversation about health from illness to wellness.
