Oklahoma Wesleyan University Announces Plans for Construction of the Keating Institute

(PRWEB) October 14, 2011

Oklahoma Wesleyan University (OKWU) today announced a $ 2 million commitment from Chesapeake Energy Corporation to construct The Keating Institute. The institute will honor the former Governor and his wife for their exemplary service to the state of Oklahoma and will be devoted to the study of free enterprise, constitutional liberty, the rule of law, federalism and Judeo-Christian values. The Keating Institute will house the Oklahoma Wesleyan School of Business, which will be renamed The Chesapeake Energy School of Business. The new institute, which will be moving forward on construction immediately, will also include a “scholars in residence” program and an annual colloquia series.

“Chesapeake is honored to support such a noble cause and is particularly proud to recognize Frank and Cathy Keating for their leadership and commitment to our state and country,” commented Aubrey K. McClendon, Chesapeake’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “We fully embrace the creation of an institute where students will learn to better understand the Constitution, the right to a free enterprise economy, the imperatives of government transparency, the uniqueness of humanity and the importance of public service.”

The mission and goals of The Keating Institute will be to promote ethical leadership, the ideals of free market economics, the spirit of entrepreneurship, the superiority of capitalism, the priority of constitutional liberty and unconditional trust in God.

“We are truly thankful for donors like Chesapeake Energy Corporation,” said Dr. Everett Piper, OKWU President. “This gift will not only be of obvious benefit to Oklahoma Wesleyan University but to our entire community and all of Oklahoma. Clearly, our culture needs to revisit the ideas of freedom, liberty and liberation that are implicit in ‘self-evident truths’ of our Constitution now, perhaps, more than ever.”

Oklahoma Wesleyan University is a recognized educational leader in the state of Oklahoma and beyond. OKWU has received national recognition from U.S. News and World Report, Forbes.com, and CBSNews MoneyWatch both for its excellent academic reputation as well as its missional integrity. The university is a four-year, Christian university of the liberal arts and sciences that is accredited by the North Central Association. OKWU also receives professional accreditation from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), and the International Assembly of Collegiate Business Education (IACBE). It is a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and boasts national championship athletic programs in men’s and women’s basketball as well as baseball. Perhaps most important, OKWU is known for its bold and clear mission which emphasizes the Primacy of Jesus Christ, the Priority of Scripture, the Pursuit of Truth and the Practice of Wisdom.

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.
