US Constitution
Article 1
Section 9,
No Person holding any Office shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

President Obama is chairman of the UN Security Counsel.
The United nations which is headquarter in New York is not a King, Prince, or a foreign State.

Best answer:

Answer by Lying Republican Moron
He does not. Neocons do not even know what they are talking about. Their goal is to smear and to demonize President in any possible way. Some of them even claim that President Obama is an Alien from outer space.

Toward a National Cartography – Online Exhibition of Antique American Maps at AmericanMapmaking.com

John Fitch, “A Map of the North West Parts of the United States of America”, 1785

(PRWEB) October 12, 2011

Boston Rare Maps, one of the country’s premier specialist dealers in rare and unusual antique maps, presents AmericanMapmaking.com, a virtual online exhibition of antique American maps from the late 18th Century. Originally hosted at the Harvard Map Collection, “Toward a National Cartography: American Mapmaking, 1782-1800” traces the evolution of mapmaking during the formative years after the American Revolution, revealing the ways in which Americans sought to transform the landscape to suit their newly established economic and political goals. Included in the exhibition are works by renowned mapmakers such as Osgood Carleton, Andrew Ellicott, John Fitch and many others. For additional information or to view the virtual exhibition online, please visit http://www.AmericanMapmaking.com.

Exhibition curator Michael Buehler of Boston Rare Maps originally assembled this lineup of rare and unusual maps for display at the Harvard Map Collection, and now offers the digital collection to viewers around the world. Buehler is a long-time collector of rare maps and historical ephemera, is a regular public speaker on the subject and has published numerous articles on “The Portolan”, the journal of the Washington Map Society. For additional information on Michael Buehler or Boston Rare Maps, please visit http://www.BostonRareMaps.com.

Highlighting this unique exhibition is a 1792 plan for “The city of Washington in the Territory of Columbia”, now Washington D.C., by surveyor Andrew Ellicott. The plan depicts a grand capital on the European model, with broad avenues, large public squares and dramatic sightlines. Its unstated intent was to convey the grandeur and permanence of the national government – which at the time was only three years old, boasted a bureaucracy of fewer than 200 employees and rested on a Constitution that was feared as much as it was venerated.

The exhibition also tracks urban development in the Northeast with Osgood Carleton’s “Accurate Plan of the Town of Boston”, published in May of 1797. Carleton’s plan of Boston was the largest and most accurate map of the town published to date. It was based primarily on a survey he conducted “by order of the General Court,” as part of a state mapping project begun in 1794. This was one of the last significant maps of Boston before the great land-making projects of the 19th century, which created the Back Bay. Noteworthy landmarks include the new State House on Beacon Hill (on land that once belonged to John Hancock), as well as the Charles River and West Boston Bridges.

American expansion is also chronicled and can be seen in John Fitch’s “Map of the North West Parts of the United States of America,” published in 1785. Fitch, a mapmaker and surveyor who went on to invent the steamboat, compiled this map primarily from William McMurray’s map of the United States, along with information from his own surveys. Fitch engraved the map himself and printed it on a press of his own construction. Like McMurray’s map, which is also included in the exhibition, Fitch depicted the Old Northwest carved into ten proto-states as specified by the Land Ordinance of 1784.

Additional featured works include maps of New England, Massachusetts, New York, Baltimore, North Carolina and beyond by prominent mapmakers like Dennis Griffith, Jonathan Price, Phinehas Merrill, Matthew Clark, John Norman and many others. In addition to city plans and maps, the exhibition also includes antique postal and road maps, navigational charts, and numerous additional cartographical specimens from post-Revolution America.

Passion 4 Life Liquid Vitamins & Minerals & BrainTek Institute Launch Groundbreaking First Ever Easy to Use Game for Stress Management & Focus Controlled Only by Brain

Passion 4 Life Liquid Vitamins & Minerals & BrainTek Institute Launch Groundbreaking First Ever Easy to Use Game for Stress Management & Focus Controlled Only by Brain

Dr. Dennis Maness, founder of the BrainTek Institute & Charles Van Kessler, founder of Passion 4 Life liquid vitamins & minerals

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 27, 2011

Passion 4 Life liquid vitamins and minerals and BrainTek Institute have announced the release of a groundbreaking first of its kind easy to use series of Virtual Reality Total Immersion Interactive Games that are controlled by the brain rather than with a joy stick, a controller or computer with the purpose of stress management, better focus and help with other health-related issues. Based on latest neuroscience, these games help reduce stress and anxiety, improve focus, attention and sleep. This cutting edge technology has never been used before in the consumer environment. These games, which can simply be downloaded, have helped over 2000 people improve focus, attention and memory by learning to manage and control their brain.

“The first release ‘Journey to the Center of Your Mind’ teaches people of all ages how to think and develop lobe to lobe communications within their brain,” says Dr. Maness, lead scientist at the BrainTek Institute. “In learning to manage their brain, people of all ages have improved focus, attention and memory. We have used these games in special education programs, public and private schools, lock down institutions and clinics and have seen over 2,000 people of all ages improve grades, productivity and find reading and learning is not a chore.” The games are now being made available to the public and are powered by BrainTek.

In their search to find a way to stabilize the brain neurochemicals which fuel the brain, BrainTek researchers teamed up with the developers of Passion 4 Life liquid vitamins and minerals and worked to create a product that is balanced with essential amino acids, minerals and vitamins. The combination of the game plus the liquid vitamins aids in the long-term brain support to those playing the games and helps make sweeping changes in stress and stress related illness as BrainTek addresses the neuro pathways and Passion 4 Life addresses the vitamin/mineral/amino acid balance in the brain and body. “Passion 4 Life is honored to be part of such cutting edge technology and to be able to support the brain enhancement of those using the games with our powerful and effective liquid vitamins,” says Charles Van Kessler, founder and creator.

This game series teaches players how to manage their brains. It teaches them how to think, how to obtain mental clarity, focus and attention, how to build self-esteem and how to function in life. The game’s average length is 12 minutes for each level and is simply downloaded. It is fun and challenging so people enjoy playing it while experiencing long-term brain enhancement benefits. The results show that students have seen an improvement on tests and are enjoying reduced time required to complete homework assignments. Most excitingly, moods have changed. Parents can feel secure in purchasing this game that is not only free of violence but will entertain their children while providing life-long benefits.

Other game releases will assist with sleep and stress reduction. Maness went on to say, “While the games are not a cure, they go a long way toward teaching you to manage your own brain instead of your brain managing you.”

The games are developed by MindChex, the games’ division of BrainTek Institute. BrainTek has developed protocols for individuals, schools, institutions, doctors and clinics since 1996. BrainTek Institute has been successful in many challenging cases and has been headlined on regional and national news and MSNBC for their successes.

The science behind the games can be found at http://www.mindchex.com. The games are now being released to the public and are available for download at http://www.MindChex.com or http://www.passion4lifevitamins.com

Passion 4 Life liquid vitamins & minerals was created in 2004 by Charles Van Kessler after 20 years of research, development & nutritional studies. Charles was raised in a state run orphanage in Amsterdam, Holland during WWII, surviving on flower bulbs & enduring abuse of every kind. After arriving in the US, his vision was to formulate & develop a liquid multi vitamin and mineral product that would give him his health back, and if it worked, he would make it available to the whole world to obtain a much higher quality of life.

That’s exactly what happened. Passion 4 Life liquid vitamins & minerals is a unique product containing 135 high grade whole food based ingredients in meaningful levels. It has no added sugar, no caffeine, no wheat, no soy, no dairy, no gluten, no artificial flavorings or colors. It is designed to strengthen the immune system & provide more energy, stamina, focus, better memory, less aches & pains from every day stress. The purpose of Passion 4 Life is to retain the power & energy of youth well into people’s 70’s and 80’s and to help them look better by feeling younger.

Passion 4 Life vitamins proudly founded and supports Passion 4 K.I.D.S., a 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, dealing with homeless, neglected, abandoned, abused and underprivileged children of any race, color and creed as well as children in emergency situations.

The BrainTek Institute has years of research and experience in identifying issues with the brain/body relationship. By studying different functions of each part of the brain and then integrating this research into practical applications, BrainTek has successfully applied technology in a way that individuals report has enhanced their health and performance of their brain. By using several different methods, they are able to alleviate the symptoms of an astonishing range of disorders, as well as improve personal performance.

New York Civil Rights Violation Lawyer from The Perecman Firm Comments on Alleged Racial Discrimination in Bronx Apartment Rentals

New York Civil Rights Violation Lawyer from The Perecman Firm Comments on Alleged Racial Discrimination in Bronx Apartment Rentals

New York, NY (PRWEB) October 12, 2011

A Bronx landlord of a Riverdale building is being sued by the Justice Department for race discrimination, a civil rights violation in New York.

Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara filed the civil rights violation lawsuit (Case # 11-06713) against the landlord, management company and superintendent for allegedly discriminating against African-Americans seeking apartments. The lawsuit claims they offered apartments to whites but not to African-Americans.

The race discrimination lawsuit was filed in Manhattan federal court.

According to the civil rights violation complaint, Loventhal Silver Riverdale LLC, Goodman Management Co. and superintendent Jesus Velasco had “engaged in conduct constituting illegal discrimination” since at least April of 2009.

“There are a number of reasons a landlord can legitimately reject a tenant, including a bad credit report or an unstable employment history. However, landlords can’t treat tenants or potential tenants differently because of a personal characteristic or feature like race or disability,” said New York civil rights violation lawyer David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s civil rights violation law firms.

As New York civil rights violation lawyers understand, the federal Fair Housing Act makes it illegal for a landlord to refuse an apartment or house rental application based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, disability and familial status.

According to the New York Daily News, Loventhal, Goodman and Velasco were caught after African-American and white “testers” visited the building, posing as would-be renters.

As reported by the New York Daily News, Velasco refused to give a black tester a rental application on April 8, 2009, but a short while later provided a white tester with an application, according to the New York race discrimination lawsuit.

On May 8 and Nov. 18, 2009, Velasco steered away African-American testers while offering apartments to white testers at discounts, as reported by the New York Daily News.

“This civil rights violation lawsuit should strongly remind other landlords that they will be held accountable if they engage in or enable others to engage in discrimination against prospective tenants in New York,” civil rights violation lawyer Perecman said.

If a person suspects that he or she has been treated unfairly because of his or her race, they should contact an experienced New York civil rights violation lawyer. Lawyers at The Perecman Firm are knowledgeable of New York state, New York City and federal legislation that protects people of all races, ethnicities, and gender.

About David Perecman and The Perecman Firm, PLLC:

For the past 30 years, the New York civil rights violation lawyers at The Perecman Firm, PLLC have handled all types of civil rights violation cases including ethnic discrimination, age discrimination, gender discrimination and race discrimination. David Perecman, founder of the Firm, is a Board Director and the past Secretary and Treasurer of the New York State Trial Lawyers Association (NYSTLA) and a chair of its Labor Law Committee. Mr. Perecman’s achievements have brought him recognition as an Honoree in the National Law Journal’s Hall of Fame, in New York Magazine’s “The Best Lawyers in America” and The New York Times Magazine “New York Super Lawyers, Metro Edition” for the years 2007-2010.

The Firm has recovered millions of dollars for its clients. Among the more recent victories, Mr. Perecman won a $ 15 million verdict** for a construction accident, a $ 5.35 million dollar verdict*** for an automobile accident, and a $ 40 million dollar structured settlement for medical malpractice****.

**later settled while on appeal for $ 7.940 million

ASIS International Partners with Brownyard Educational Center to Advance Education of Security Professionals

ASIS International Partners with Brownyard Educational Center to Advance Education of Security Professionals

Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) September 15, 2011

The Brownyard Educational Center (http://www.BrownyardU.com) and ASIS International (http://www.ASISOnline.org) today announced an educational partnership that will strengthen the Center’s role as the world’s first web-based center of excellence for security professionals. The educational partnership will make the Center’s continuing education and degree programs available to the 37,000 active ASIS members.

“It is fitting that we announce this important partnership with ASIS just days after the 10-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, because well-educated and well-trained security professionals are the first line of defense, whether it’s against natural disasters, crime or acts of terrorism,” said Tory Brownyard, president of Brownyard Group.

The Brownyard Educational Center was founded by Brownyard Group, a leader in insurance for the security industry, and Cardinal Point Strategies, a risk management consulting firm working in national security, government affairs and professional development. The Center features three prominent educational partners: CiNet’s Professional Security Training Network (PSTN), Kaplan EduNeering and Kaplan University.

“Quality education is at the cornerstone of the ASIS mission,” stated Raymond T. O’Hara, CPP, president, ASIS International. “Partnerships with industry organizations such as the Brownyard Educational Center enable ASIS to broaden the scope of learning opportunities for our members around the world.”

“The partnership with ASIS International will help the Brownyard Educational Center reach more security professionals, a mission that is more important than ever,” said Paul Goldenberg, CEO of Cardinal Point Strategies. “With municipal and county police agencies facing unprecedented budget cuts and staff reductions, professionally trained private and contracted security officers will be needed to fill these gaps.”

Extensive Educational Offerings

The Brownyard Platinum Performance Training Program includes three tiers of courses from PSTN and Kaplan EduNeering:

    Tier I: Basic Security Officer Training Series (BSOTS)
    Tier II: Liability in Security Operations and Risk
    Tier III: Professional Development and Management – Supervisor Excellence Series
