Gaming Portal First Merchant To Check in On Danish Bitcoin Exchange CCEDK

Blokhus, Denmark, Jun 28, 2014 -- “With FUN-CASINO added to the trading platform, CCEDK expects to make a strong presence in the bitcoin gaming industry, as it is expected this gaming portal will be the first of many to join the CCEDK merchant program ( in near future. It is a sector so far with the highest bitcoin usage, and is the first of many industries, where setting up a merchant account on our platform seems the right thing to do,” Ronny Boesing, CEO CCEDK ApS said in an interview.

“Once the gaming portals dealing with crypto currencies worldwide realize what we are offering, I expect them to stand in line to sign up for our merchant program”, Boesing says, and he continues. “This program is of course also meant for all other enterprises believing in crypto currencies to be the no. 1 alternative way to pay for goods and services in the future!”


This first merchant to be listed on CCEDK online trading platform softly launched in Aprilwith support for gaming in Bitcoin and Litecoin. Already on the site is offered 40-plus games, including roulette, blackjack, Texas hold ‘em and slot machines. Worth noticing is the site’s security which is backed by iTECH Labs.


Multilingual presence:
Working well together with the CCEDK strategy to be the most multilingual bitcoin exchange worldwide, FUN-CASINO at can offer some synergy to that area by being already available in the languages: English, Russian, Chinese, German, Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, Japanese, Swedish, Dutch and Turkish and many more to come!


Good news to holders of crypto currencies in general:
“Today it is possible to play with Bitcoin and Litecoin on FUN-CASINO, and later on it is possible to play with all other crypto currencies via a special FUNcoin currency, which will be available for free exchange on CCEDK” Boesing says:


“In co operation with project managers of FUN-CASINO we are working on the integration and presentation of FUNcoin on our trading platform, enabling holders of alternative crypto currencies to convert for free to FUNcoin which will then be possible to be used as currency on the FUN-CASINO game portal similar to Litecoin and Bitcon.”


With numerous users of virtual currencies indulged in the world of Bitcoin Games CCEDK is already poised to generate high volume of trades. With the potential of adding future merchants from other industries as well, CCEDK seems to be going down the right track to become the natural choice of exchange for crypto currency transactions worldwide.


About CCEDK ApS: is an online trading platform of digital currencies order-to-order, on which seller and buyer meet to perform their transactions peer-to-peer from crypto to crypto or fiat to crypto or vice versa.

Danish Exchange CCEDK Offering Direct Payments from 1000-Plus Banks in the EU

Blokhus, Denmark, Jun 24, 2014 -- Danish cryptocurrency exchange CCEDK, whose launch we covered last month, announced in a statement Friday that it would begin offering direct deposits from more than 1000 banks in 10 eurozone countries via SOFORT Banking.

"This instant payment system from SOFORT allows users on the CCEDK platform to deposit money as if they had deposited with a credit card, as deposits are confirmed 15-30 minutes after confirmation of transfer," said CCEDK CEO Ronny Boesing. "It allows you to act on the change in price of the various cryptocurrencies instantly, thus increasing the chances of making some good deals."


For users outside of Denmark eligible to receive such payments, that means there will no longer be waiting times of two to five days while Single Euro Payments Area bank transfers process, Boesing said in a release:


“It is obvious, that the future lies in an exchange able to show transparency, a safe and secure trading platform, multiple currency pairs and multilingual interfaces allowing the exchange to embrace the world in a personal way, making everyone feel welcome.”


“No more delays on deposits, no more missing out on a good Sell offer! As soon as we get your money in euro, we send you Bitcoin, Litecoin or Peercoin or any of the other cryptocurrencies to be listed in coming months.”


Currently, CCEDK can support direct SOFORT deposits in EUR to banks in

The Netherlands,
Austria, and


Boesing said he plans to add support for UK clients and transfers in GBP in August.


Elsewhere, international wire transfers are available, though Boesing noted his exchange is exploring “many alternative ways of payment through integrated payment service providers.”

Researcher raises public money to sequence genome of small fern with massive green potential

Researcher raises public money to sequence genome of small fern with massive green potential | PRArrow |

Durham, NC, June 15, 2014 -- Scientists from Duke University are raising money through crowdfunding platform to sequence the genome of a promising little fern called Azolla. This could be a huge step towards decreasing Earth’s CO2 levels, improving biofuel production, and lowering food prices.


Fifty million years ago, the Earth was so warm that turtles and alligators thrived in lush forests at the poles. Much of the North Pole was covered in a rather less charismatic life form: the floating, duckweed-like fern, Azolla.


Recent geological evidence from Arctic Ocean seabeds reveals 50-million-year-old sediments that are composed almost entirely of Azolla fossils for an 800,000-year span. This interval, known as the ‘Arctic Azolla event,’ was a period when Azolla blanketed the ocean surface repeatedly, forming dense mats of vegetation.


Then something really interesting happened. As these Azolla plants died and became part of the sediment, they took atmospheric carbon down with them. Global atmospheric levels of CO2 fell significantly, precipitating Earth's initial shift from a greenhouse world towards the current icehouse climate that we're now worried will melt.


Azolla is still with us, floating on the surface of ponds, lakes and rice paddies. Though tiny––one Azolla plant could comfortably sit on top of your smallest fingernail––it can double its entire body mass in just less than two days. Some researchers think this makes it a promising alternative for biofuel production and carbon-capture efforts.


But Azolla does yet another interesting trick––it captures all the nitrogen fertilizer it needs from the atmosphere around it. Since the dawn of agriculture, Asia’s farmers have known about, and deliberately exploited, the benefits of growing Azolla as a companion plant with rice. The floating fern thrives in rice paddies, fixing nitrogen and other nutrients, which are released into the environment at the end of each growing season, constantly improving the soil composition and providing a natural, green fertilizer that significantly bolsters rice productivity.


The secret here is that Azolla isn't just a plant; it’s a ‘superorganism,’ a symbiotic collaboration of a plant and a microbe. In a special protective cavity inside each leaf, Azolla hosts a microbe called Nostoc that spends its entire life converting atmospheric nitrogen into food for its host.


Azolla and Nostoc have clearly demonstrated a prodigious ability to combat global warming, and to produce precious nitrogen that could help feed the world in a more sustainable way. Even though they have been co-evolving for nearly 100 million years, we­­ know very little about them and how they communicate. Wouldn't it be great to understand this symbiotic relationship better, and to be able to understand the biological "conversation" between the host and the microbe?.


Because it is classified as a “lowly fern,” Azolla has been sidelined in plant genome studies. Repeated appeals to granting agencies for funding to unlock the know-how embodied by this superorganism have been met with responses like “too unconventional,” or “too risky.”


But to sustainably produce food for a world population of more than 7 billion people––all while reducing pollution and greenhouse gases––we will need to do some "risky" research. Novel ideas and innovative approaches that could reveal just how nature ‘does what it does’ naturally might help to revolutionize current farming practices. The cost of continuing to do the same old, same old makes little economic sense.

Specifically, we need a more sustainable source of nitrogen. By 2015, roughly 200 million tons of industrially produced, nitrogen-rich fertilizer will be needed to grow the world's food, a process that will consume vast amounts of fossil fuel, exacerbating our CO2 problems.

I think Azolla and Nostoc have great potential to reduce the world’s reliance on fossil fuels, while scrubbing a bunch of CO2 out of the atmosphere in the bargain.


We're not talking about a lot of money to do this. Genomic sequencing of this unique Azolla-Nostoc system would cost well under $1 million. That's far less than the $8 billion each year that U.S. farmers pay for nitrogen fertilizer––much of which finds its way into rivers and streams, damaging delicate water systems. This small step toward potentially helping crops to use less synthetic nitrogen could benefit farmers' bottom lines, the environment, and the prices we pay for food.


I'd like to see the genome of the Azolla superorganism sequenced so that we can understand the language that codes for the molecular machinery underlying this symbiotic partnership, and possibly tailor it to suit our needs. Knowing how this works might even enable us to engineer crops to fix their own nitrogen––an achievement that could truly revolutionize modern agriculture.


Not often does such a small price promise a big gain -

Taxes Are Due: What Happens if You Can’t Pay the IRS?

Earlier this month was much of America’s least favorite day of the year: Tax Day. And while millions of Americans sent a check to the IRS, plenty more found that they were unable to pay their tax bill. There are plenty of reasons why this could happen, such as – failing to withhold enough money during the year, failing to anticipate how much you’d owe, or experiencing financial duress in various forms.

What should you do if you owe money to the IRS, but can’t afford to pay?

If you get nothing else from this article, please understand this: the worst thing you can do is simply ignore the situation!


Trust me, failing to address your IRS debt won’t make it go away, it will only make matters worse. And you do have options. The IRS now accepts payments via credit cards and they are generally willing to enter into installment payment agreements with taxpayers.


A recent Fox Business article breaks down the details of the installment options that are available:

If your tax bill is too large for a credit card, the IRS will take monthly payments. You even get to pick your monthly payment amount and the day it will be due.


In fact, when a taxpayer has previously filed — and paid — taxes on time and the tax bill is $10,000 or less, the IRS usually grants installment payment requests even if taxpayers have enough money on hand to pay their bills in full.


To get the program going, attach Form 9465, Installment Agreement Request, to the front of your tax return. Or, if the total amount you owe is not more than $50,000, you can ignore Form 9465 and request an installment agreement online at the IRS website.


Financially strapped taxpayers also can use an installment plan to make partial payments of tax liability. The IRS previously had allowed partial installment payments but stopped the practice in 1998 when an IRS attorney raised questions about the IRS’ authority to accept such payments without statutory authority. Congress officially granted the IRS the power to resume partial payment installment agreements as part of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004.


Regardless of whether you pay your tax bill in full or partially via an installment agreement, keep in mind that paying over time, even to Uncle Sam, will cost you more. The IRS charges a one-time fee of $120 unless you arrange to have your installment payments made via direct debit from your bank account.


As you can see, a variety of options exist for taxpayers who can’t pay their IRS bill. And while it’s never pleasant to owe money to the IRS, its far better to make arrangements to pay your debt than it is to ignore the situation. If you’d like to learn more about your options, we can help. Our team focuses exclusively on helping taxpayers overcome IRS disputes and get back to enjoying their lives. Contact us today to learn more.

New Travel Guide for Rome Focuses on Catholic Pilgrims

New Travel Guide for Rome Focuses on Catholic Pilgrims | PRArrow |

Rome, Italy, April 11, 2014 -- Record crowds are expected in the eternal city, for the upcoming canonizations of Popes John Paul II and John XXIII on April 27th. Add in the worldwide popularity of Pope Francis, and Rome has now become an even more desired destination for travelers. Rome and the Vatican - Guide 4 Pilgrims is a new travel guide, rich in history with approximately 800 inspiring photographs detailing over 100 pilgrim sites with numerous maps and convenient walking tours, as well as hundreds of tips with essential information any Rome traveler would value. For those pilgrims traveling to these canonizations, who want to dig deeper into the Eternal City and their Catholic faith, authors Kenneth and Elizabeth Nowell share bonus sites and eccentricities that most Rome/Vatican travel books and tourists miss.

"This book is at the top of my list as one of the most comprehensive Catholic travel guides to Rome,” says Teresa Tomeo, a popular Catholic radio and television show host who has led thousands of pilgrims to Rome for over ten years. “I am taking this book with me on all four of my pilgrimages to Rome this year. Although I have been to Rome many times, this book will help me to discover the hidden gems most miss when visiting the eternal city."


Pilgrims are steered off the well-trodden tourist paths to out-of-the-way sites complete with over 1,000 surprising facts, history, and trivia.

These sites most tourists miss include:
>The preserved head of St. John the Baptist
>A baptismal font used by St. Peter
>The column upon which St. Paul was beheaded
>The stone upon which soldiers cast lots for Jesus’ tunic
>St. Paul's remains, sarcophagus and the chains that held him
>A section of the scourging column of Jesus Christ


"With this book in hand, you can see and appreciate what most Christians never learn, and to elevate your faith to a new level - what most tourists miss," says Nowell. "My wife and I wrote this book for people like us: those who want to experience their travels as life intensified, seeking to squeeze every ounce out of what they see, experience and learn. We want not only the city of Rome to be called eternal, but the memories of these beautiful sites as well.”

Virginians of Maryland to honor Brit Hume as 75th Medallionist

Baltimore, Maryland, April 08, 2014 -- The Virginians of Maryland, a fraternal organization of Virginians transplanted to Maryland dating to 1927, will honor the distinguished journalist Brit Hume at their 75th annual Medallion Award dinner at The Maryland Club on April 17th. Mr. Hume will be the 75th recipient of an honor that has been awarded to distinguished Virginians since Senator Carter Glass became the first recipient in 1940. Recipients include such illustrious Virginians as Admiral Richard Byrd, Senator Hugh Scott, Lady Nancy Astor, Honorable Lewis F. Powell, Governor Colgate Darden, Colonel John W. Ripley, Larry Sabato, General George C. Marshall and many others.


The Virginians of Maryland date to 1927, when on November 27th a group of men gathered at The Emerson Hotel to consider the formation of a new society of Virginians.

IED Turin The “heart” of Transportation Design

Do you love cars? Do you intend to design cars? If you answer as you could persuade a career as a transportation Designer a professional that has to be able to reconcile aspects of style, aerodynamics, feasibility, design and ergonomics. This kind of designer must have a profound understanding of the product and the functions that the consumer is looking for, so as to be able to have a clear idea about the relationship between design and marketing, innovation and commercial requirements.

Istituto Europeo di Design, the International Higher Educational Network in Design, Fashion, Visual Communication and Management of creative industries, offers a complete BA in Transportation Design,starting in October 2014, that prepares professionals, principally concerned with designing the primary means of transport and is capable of designing a number of different kinds of vehicle, in particular motorbikes, yachts and trains.


The three-year curriculum - in english - is based on a training methodology that focuses on achieving synergy between creativity, technology and experimentation. Its main objectives are to develop students’ creative sense, knowledge of technologies, materials and design culture, ability to understand the market and its requirements and their ability to communicate the quality of their design projects by learning specific techniques of presentation and illustration.


Being a student at IED Turin -


“My passion for cars and design led to the study Industrial Product Design. My strong desire to work on cars, finally led me to IED Turin. Italy is renowned for many things, but for me its fabled history in car design is insurmountable and Turin is the heart of Italian car industry. I chose IED Turin, because the course not only builds all the essential skills up right from the core, like sketching and clay and digital modelling, but also it is the closest to working with a car design department of a company. The final year of the course sees the development of project in collaboration with a car brand, right from sketches to a show car at the Geneva auto show. This experience is definitely unparalleled. No other college or university offers such an opportunity, along with the sufficient training to execute such a task. The choice was easy”, says Ranbir Kalha, former Transportation Design student.

Mequon Daycare Features Wisconsin's Only Fully Organic Menu

Mequon Daycare Features Wisconsin's Only Fully Organic Menu | PRArrow |

Mequon, Wisconsin, May 23, 2014 -- Kids Rule Academy, which is already making news for their uncompromising approach to daycare, is once again turning heads as they feature the state’s only fully organic daycare menu.

Kids Rule Academy’s initially had hoped for a vendor to supply the organic menu locally but was unable to find one not only in metro Milwaukee but in Wisconsin as well. Therefore, Alex Mazur, owner and operations manager of Kids Rule Academy, went next door to Illinois. “We could have decided, 'Well, there's no one around here who can supply us organic food for our day care, let's just not do it,' but I really believe that an organic diet with only the most wholesome of ingredients makes the difference in children's diet and development.”


The emphasis in organic means less exposure for children from the toxins, dyes, additives, and other unnecessary and potentially harmful ingredients added to food during its production. According to the Center of Science in the Public Interest, children especially should limit their diets these chemicals which are not found in organic foods. Studies show these chemicals have direct influences on learning and behavior in children.


Quality Catering Inc. based in Illinois, stepped up to provide kids-tested, organic meals for Kids Rule Academy “Quality Catering is dedicated to nutrition and education children about healthful eating habits and so are we,” says Mazur. While disappointed they could not find a catering company in Wisconsin, Mazur says, “Our convenience and money saving are the last things on our mind when it comes to serving your children.”

Kids Rule Academy’s entire menu is certified organic. Along with Quality Catering Inc., they ensure every meal exceeds the USDA’s “Food Plate” nutritional guideless as each menu is reviewed by the company’s staff Registered Dietitian. Unlike other daycare centers, Kids Rule Academy does not try to cut cost of food using canned or processed foods. Only the freshest natural and organic fruits and vegetables go into the children's lunch and snack.


Kids Rule Academy is currently accepting enrollment for the summer programs. A Free iPad Air is being offered for those parents who enroll their child for a full year by July 31st. See their website for details and conditions.

- Insurance and Benefits

- Hiring and Retaining Top Talent

- Marketing their Products/Services Effectively

- Use of Technology to Recruit and Network

- Use of Social Media to Engage Customers


Small business owners are responsible for a large slice of the economic recovery and growth in Maryland, and this conference is built to make the most efficient use of their most prized resource, time.

"As a small business owner and consultant myself, I know how busy owners and executives in these small companies can be, and I respect that their time is precious. I also know that deficits in those key areas often hold them back, and prevent the very growth they are striving to achieve. This conference is designed to address both aspects of their business lives and help them succeed," notes Dave Poulos of Granite Partners, organizer of the event.


"I’m pleased to host this innovative conference. I’m looking forward to a hearing a roster of great speakers, and learning something from each of them at a very high level – this has been likened to getting an MBA in one day," said Mark Debinski, of Bluewater Advisory and Bluewater Search, a local recruitment and search advisory firm, and host of the event.


Six top experts have been selected to present tips, tools, case studies and education on topics in each specialty, and have the added advantage of being small business owners themselves, so they share both the empathy and the passion of the audience. Speakers include:

- Host, Mark Debinski, Bluewater Advisory

- Jim Wilhelm, CPA, SC&H

- Tuley Wright, Wright Benefits Solutions

- Dave Poulos, The Marketing Doctor

- Amy Polefrone, HR Strategy Group

- Colleen McKenna, Intero Advisory

- Luke Harlan, Harlan Marketing Solutions


Sponsored by Granite Partners, and The Baltimore Chapter of the American Marketing Association, the conference includes six educational sessions, Q&A panel discussion, plated lunch, book signings and Happy Hour open bar. Attendance is limited to 100 attendees, to encourage interaction and networking.
