Leo Alexander for Mayor "Bridging the Digital Divide"

I have lived in Washington DC for 2 years and my son has now been home schooled for 18 of those months. We brought him from a VA school system where I was raised and were just appalled by the DC public school system especially since we live in the Chevy Chase area of Washington DC. If the Upper NW
elementary schools are this bad how bad must it be in NE and SE?

Mr. Alexander has a plan to "Bridge the Digital Divide" making it finally possible for our DC students to compete with their counterparts in Fairfax and Montgomery County.

Leo Alexander knows that this can not be done without finally bringing a seamless technology plan to the DC Public School system that will not only allow our children the
chance to raise their test scores but to see what is available to them outside of their own neighborhood.

Capitol City Geeks fully support his efforts. Please visit Leo's newly designed website at www.LeoAlexanderForMayor.com

Duct Cleaning, the Pros and Cons
First the Pros:

* Source Removal - If you get rid of the “source”, you will get rid of the problem.
* Clean Air - It only stands to reason; if your ducts are clean the furnace and air conditioner won’t blow it around your home.

* Very Affordable - For as little as $99 you could have all the air ducts in your home cleaned.
Fast and Efficient - With two duct cleaners, the process should take less than an hour for a typical home with just one furnace.
* No Haggling Over Prices - Unlike other domestic services, duct cleaning should be easy to bid over the phone. Nowadays, most duct cleaning companies will give you a price quote over the phone.

Now the Cons:

* Duct Cleaning Cost - How clean is “clean”? Duct cleaning prices range from $69 - $1,000. This creates a lot of confusion, because the typical homeowner can’t inspect the work.
* Discount Duct Cleaning - Beware of any company offering $10 off, or $50 off. What is the real duct cleaning cost? Ask $10 off of what price?
* Per Vent Pricing - Most homeowners are unaware that their home may have 15-30 vents. Even at $10 per vent, this ads up fast.
* Duct Cleaning Scams - As in any business, duct cleaning companies will pop up from time to time and try to take advantage of unsuspecting homeowners.
* Incomplete Cleaning Methods - Look for companies that will give you a “Whole House Price”. You should be able to provide basic information about your heating and cooling system over the phone and get a price quote. If the duct cleaning company wants to come out to your home to give you a bid, hang onto your wallet!

Public Access Automated External Defibrillator

What IS an AED and Why Would I Want One?

How do I start an AED program? What is PAD?(Public Access to Defibrillation) What is an AED? Can anyone buy an AED? Do I have to be trained to use an AED? All these questions and more are answered here. Who can Manage our companies AED Program?

Research shows shopping malls are one of the most likely spots for cardiac arrests to occur.
Research shows shopping malls are one of the most likely spots for cardiac arrests to occur.

Put defibrillators (AEDs) where they are needed most - Offices and Homes

AED Management Services in Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic Region

The defibrillator (AED) can save lives when sudden cardiac arrest due to arrhythmia (an abnormal electrical signal in the heart). Symptoms of cardiac arrest are chest pain or loss of consciousness. The AED restores the heart's normal electrical signal…if the heart is not defibrillated in 3 minutes or less death or serious incapacitation will occur.

Because one of the main causes of death in the United States is cardiovascular disease; more and more Maryland businesses and employers are installing AED's and AED programs in the work place to add to their business’s emergency medical readiness, practices and programs. AEDs will save lives that why AED certification is the necessary for rescuers.

Getting training and certification in Maryland on the proper use of automated external defibrillators is inexpensive and available to anyone. AED training is similar to CPR training. AED/CPR training and certification are taught together in the class at the same time.

AED/CPR training and certifications are offered by The American Heart Association, The American Red Cross, The American Safety and Health Institute as well as AED manufacturers like Medtronic Physio-Control (LifePak) and Cardiac Science (PowerHeart)…all offer AED/CPR training classes to business, non-profits and commercial organizations.

For Maryland residences AED/CPR training is done in homes using a DVD without a facilitator. Residences don’t get (or need) AED/CPR certification. Certification only occurs when a training class is paired with a national AED/CPR certifying organization’s skills evaluation methodology. Scheduling AED/CPR training class is easy when ordered from AED Program Management Services at http://keepaheartbeating.com or http//:aedprogramsstore.com

During sudden cardiac arrest, your brain and other vital organs are being starved of blood and oxygen which carries live saving nutrients. You can die in minutes and/or survive but sustain permanent damage to your brain and other organs. The heart's rhythm must be restored fast since every minute that passes is critical to your chance of survival and the amount of damage you sustain.

When the electrodes or pads of automated external defibrillator capable of automatic operation are attached to your chest, these electrodes can detect the heart's rhythm during cardiac arrest and automatically delivers an electric shock to get your heart beating again.

Sudden cardiac arrest happens when your heart's electrical activity is disrupted and the heartbeat gets dangerously fast (ventricular tachycardia) or chaotic (ventricular fibrillation). Your heart stops beating effectively and does not adequately pump blood because of these irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmia).

A non trained bystander that acts quickly and calls 911 to summon emergency medical services to the scene before using the AED can then grab an “automatic operation” defibrillator with voice prompts and easily connect it to your chest to allow the AED to evaluate your heart rhythm. If your heart rhythm can be treated with an electric shock, the AED automatically sends an electrical shock to get your heart back into a normal rhythm.

Only defibrillation can restore the heart's normal rhythm and ultimately save your life although cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is important to use to keep some blood flowing to your heart and brain.

Automated external defibrillators are now commonly available in Maryland businesses, residences, homes, malls, office buildings, sports arenas, golf courses, cruise ships, schools, casinos, airports and airplanes any many, many public locations governed by various Maryland public access defibrillation laws.

Placing an automated external defibrillator in homes is rapidly increasing because you don’t lose valuable minutes waiting for 911 to arrive with an AED. In an emergency, the automated external defibrillator offers step-by-step voice instructions to guide a user through the defibrillation process. The defibrillator explains how to check for breathing and a pulse and how to position electrode pads on the person's chest.

Once the pads are in place, the AED automatically analyzes the person's heart rhythm and determines if a shock is needed. The machine instructs the user to push a button to deliver the shock and guides users through cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

Putting automated external defibrillators in Maryland business and homes which definition are populated by lots of people can save thousands of lives each year. If anyone collapses from sudden cardiac arrest in a home or business, a family member, friend or fellow employee could quickly grab the office or home AED and use it to save a life.

If you decide to get an automated external defibrillator for your home or office, take an AED/CPR training class certified by nationally recognized organizations and make sure you follow the training video, operating and maintenance instructions provided by manufacturer.

vid·e·og·ra·phy (vd-gr-f) ( specifically North Carolina Videography )

NOUN: The art or practice of using a video camera.

The Art of Recording with Video Camera: the art or practice of using a video camera to make films or programs

In years past people simply relied on a trusty super 8 mm movie camera, those gave way to Video Recorders, now that the digital revolution has arrived every body has gone to Digital Video to record their vacations and outings.

Kent Courtney's latest on-line article on Fire Extinguishers

When I was in the U.S. Navy, on board both the USS PROTEUS (AS-19) and the USS MOBILE (LKA-115), it was my responsibility for Damage Control communications. On a ship, a fire can be catastrophic. You have to fight the fire. You can run out of a home or business when it's on land. On a ship, you have to fight the fire - or swim with the sharks.

If it's your home, you have to decide if you want to save your home. Most fires start pretty small, with little initial damage. At this point, they can be controlled with a nearby fire extinguisher. In a home kitchen fire, a range-top fire suppression system can put out a hot and difficult grease fire quickly.

The key is being prepared. Baker's Fire Protection and Safety Equipment Company can provide the basic things that can save lives and property. They have two websites that can provide you with more information. They are:

Kent Courtney Saves Client from Turkish Attack

In breaking news, Turkish hackers are attacking numerous websites and servers throughout these United States and replacing those sites with an un-savory message.

One of Kent Courtney's clients - Being With Vital Health - was attacked by the Turks in a website that was hosted by a server that was not part of the AreaGuides Network.

Being With Vital Health had two websites. One was the hacked site. The other was the Being With Vital Health site on ChoosePA.com.

Within minutes after the report, Kent Courtney gave instructions to redirect the URL pointer to a site on ChoosePA.com. Kent Courtney had recommended the ChoosePA.com site as necessary when Being with Vital Health first came onboard as a sponsor.

This ChoosePA.com site is hosted by the AreaGuides Network and their servers are secure from the Turkish attacks.

Up to the minute alertness and prior preparation minimized the attempted defamation by the Turks.
