London, UK (PRWEB) September 01, 2014
The new school year is upon us and for every parent a new school year could also mean brushing back in with school bullying. It is time for parents and educators to understand what bullying could lead to for children before it is too late, all with NoBullyings guide to school bullying this year, released today.
It is first to be noted that bullying is not mere teasing or kids play. Especially if the child is new at school, bullies are, sadly, everywhere and they have various methods of bullying to intimidate and push down other children.
The bullies actions may start out as simple teasing, but over time verbal harassment can lead to physical harm. This alone can have severe consequences for both the bully and the target.
Even if it is verbal, bullying is an expression of violence in its purest form. Bullying can progress to being physical, thus harming the bully, the victim and the bystanders involved.
But what could the acts of bullying lead to? Bullying could often lead to a variety of symptoms and actions for the bully and the victim.
Children who are victims of bullying are inflicted by violence in a physical sense that is done subtly by the bully to escape punishment from teachers. Some children at school could face hitting, tripping, pushing, slapping, or even their belongings destroyed. If a child is coming home with unexplained injuries, damaged clothing or lost/damaged possessions or even any signs of stress, parents need to step in right away.
Those who are present when a bully is causing harm to his or her intended target may also be affected by what is witnessed. Bystanders may be affected by what they see or hear, which could have long lasting psychological consequences, even as adults. Children who witness the bullying of their friends are most likely to experiment with smoking, drugs, alcohol or delve into promiscuous activities, even leading in some cases to teenage pregnancy.
It may not seem directly related but bullying and acts of unkindness could have serious consequences on a child’s or teens ability to make correct decisions. They may delve into these things to get on the good side of the bully, including running away from home.
It is also to be highlighted that more than 3.2 million students fall victim to bullying every year and that one in four teachers do nothing because they see there is nothing wrong with bullying. This is a serious call for parents to take note of bullying in school and learn how to stand up to it properly.
Ciaran Connolly, Co-Founder of NoBullying.com, said, With the new school year upon us, we need to keep fighting bullying in school. It takes the entire community to end bullying in school.
He added that parents and teachers should make a point to educate the younger generations about the sad outcome of bullying online and offline. According to Connolly, it is quite imperative to press for more firm laws condemning all acts of bullying and harassment.
NoBullying.com features many pages dedicated to parents, teens, teachers, health professionals as well as posts related to cyber safety and the latest news about law making concerning curbing Bullying worldwide as well as inspirational Bullying Poems and famous Bullying Quotes.
The website regularly updates its bullying statistics and cyber bullying statistics as it is essential to understand how widespread the bullying epidemic is. It also regularly runs cyber bullying surveys and questionnaires to get recent updated statistics on everything related to cyberbullying.
He also added that anyone suffering from bullying in any form or way can always find advice and help on the NoBullying website but if anyone is suffering from severe bullying or cyber bullying, the best thing is to talk to someone locally a parent, teacher or local organization that has been set up to help with specialized councilors to deal with this topic.

Orange County, California (PRWEB) August 30, 2014
Everyone knows that it is against the law for any individual who is under the influence of any alcoholic beverage or drug, or under the combined influence of any alcoholic beverage and drug, to operate a motor vehicle. Once arrested for DUI in Orange County most criminal defense lawyers will offer a no cost consultation. Chris Koch and Associates are different in many ways from most lawyers that operate in the area. For starters, they have the newest marketing techniques to educate their potential clients on what their legal rights are when facing a criminal charge like a DUI, or drunk driving. They just released important DUI information on what to expect from an Orange County DUI defense team. When a person is arrested for suspicion of drunk driving in Orange County the officer is required by law to immediately send a copy of the completed notice of suspension or revocation form and the driver license taken into possession, with a report to the Department of Motor Vehicles. The DMV automatically conducts an administrative review that includes an examination of the officer’s report, the suspension or revocation order, and any test results. If the suspension or revocation is upheld during the administrative review, the individual arrested may request a hearing to contest the suspension or revocation. The person arrested will have the right to request a hearing from the DMV within 10 days of receipt of the suspension or revocation order. If the review shows there is no basis for the suspension or revocation, the action will be set aside. The individual arrested will be notified by the DMV in writing only if the suspension or revocation is set aside following the administrative review.
The rising cost of retaining quality legal defense is a big concern for people seeking reliable legal protection for DUI or Driving Under the Influence cases. This cost can run thousands of dollars for cases that are more critical. However, this cost is much lower from the Orange County DUI defense lawyers from Chris Koch & Associates. A DUI arrest has tough financial consequences including very stiff penalties and fines. There is also a suspension of driving license which is another serious problem associated with these cases. Those arrested with criminal charges against them are required to defend themselves in the court of law. In civil procedures, those arrested can appear before the Department of Motor Vehicles and can receive a restricted driving license. Individuals arrested for DUI may also have to obtain SR22 insurance in order to operate a vehicle. To find out more information regarding the legal issues when facing an arrest visit the DUI site from the firm or call 877-227-9128
The criminal defense lawyer promotes the firms services by working with the top internet marketers in the country. The drunk driving attorneys want local residents to know how important it is to speak with an experienced attorney if someone has been arrested. The attorneys continue their online presence by offering no cost consultations, and legal defense information the firms blog and social media pages. The law firm works with a search optimization specialist to promote no cost consultations online and the firm believes this will attract more local residents in Orange County looking for legal representation.

BIOEQUA, an innovative line of skin care products that are applied through the use of a handheld spray, has made its EQUA ESSENTIAL line available to consumers across the United States.
The brand began with an unexpected discovery in an emergency burn care unit. BIOEQUA researchers were surprised to learn that the application of nanospray technology allowed for liquid medication to be made extremely small and delivered directly to skin’s basal layer. This resulted in immediate absorption and reparative effects. The researchers also discovered how nanospray technology could be further integrated into skin care products through the principle of iontophoresis, which sees negatively charged atomized particles added to the nanonized skin care product. This process promotes the exchange of ions, allowing skin care nutrients to instantly penetrate down to skin’s basal layers for immediate therapeutic effects.
Our unique approach to skin care has made BIOEQUA a leader in the health and beauty field, said Dahshiam Chiao, CEO of BIOEQUA. We have totally rethought the accepted method of applying moisturizers and rejuvenating creams, and have come up with something that will change the future of skin care.”
BIOEQUA, which was invented in the United States and leverages active ingredients from both Asia and the U.S., uses nano-spray technology for quick and complete application to the skin. This technology used in BIOEQUAs Skincare NanoJet System is more than 25 times more effective than competing topical products. EQUA ESSENTIAL is available online, over the counter, and by prescription.
We are very pleased to bring our line of skin care products to customers throughout the U.S. market, said Chiao. Our groundbreaking line of beauty products is changing the way people think about skin care. BIOEQUA goes on in seconds and creates superior, lasting results that could take hours to achieve through conventional application methods.
BIOEQUA starter kits and refills are now available, including the EQUA ESSENTIAL Intensive Firming Lifting Set, the EQUA ESSENTIAL Intensive Dark Spot Removing Set and the EQUA ESSENTIAL Intensive Hydration Set. Each kit comes with the revolutionary UltraJet mobile device and two spray refills. Additional refills may be purchased separately.
The brands skin care products feature ingredients chosen for their proven effectiveness and fast-acting ability. Each BIOEQUA skin care product is specially designed for conversion into nano-particles, allowing them to absorb quickly and completely into the inner skin. This biomedical technology can dramatically improve facial skin health. BIOEQUAs skin care systems enhance skin regeneration and facilitate healthy skin development, delaying the aging process.
Our nano-spray technology allows for our products to accomplish in a few seconds what can take other products dozens of applications to achieve, said Chiao. This makes BIOEQUA the quickest, most effective, and least wasteful skin care line on the market.

The Society of Architectural Historians (SAH) has been awarded a $ 5,000 grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts for the SAH Chicago Seminar, Tomorrows Metropolis: Bridging the Past and Future in Chicagos Built Environment. The Graham Foundation today announced $ 480,000 in new grants to organizations around the world to support projects that engage original ideas in architecture. SAH is among 11 Chicago-based organizations to receive a grant.
The Chicago Seminar is part of the public programming for the Societys 68th Annual Conference that takes place in Chicago from April 1519, 2015. The seminar engages international scholars and local audiences in critical discussions about local architectural histories and the future of the city, and focuses on the increasingly important relationships that link new plans for local communities to historic, economic, and environmental concerns. An interdisciplinary panel of architects, historians and other experts will discuss the dynamics of history and innovation in the city’s and region’s evolution, including the multifarious roles of industry in the city, options for the region’s water resources and the impact of gentrification and development in historic neighborhoods. Keynote speakers, including Charles Waldheim, John E. Irving Professor of Landscape Architecture and Chair of the Department of Landscape Architecture at Harvard University, will address this intersection of scales, histories, and disciplines. Through this focus, the seminar meets the needs of its two target audiences: local public and professionals, and visiting scholars wishing to understand the debates shaping Chicago’s built environment today.
