The Roundup Options Legal Center of Minnesota Encourages Users of Roundup Diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma to Call for Access to The Steinberg Law Group

Seattle has joined Miami, Austin, and other cities in restricting the use of herbicides with glyphosate, such as Roundup.”

— Jen Monnier

MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, USA, October 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Roundup Options Legal Center of Minnesota is dedicated to providing the best legal assistance to people stricken with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia from exposure to Roundup or other glyphosate-based weed killers. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with a member of The Steinberg Law Group.

The Roundup Options Legal Center of Minnesota has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their decades of experience in handling mass action and class action cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps them obtain the best possible financial compensation for clients.

Roundup is a glyphosate-based herbicide originally produced by Monsanto and introduced to the consumer market in 1974. Monsanto, which Bayer acquired in 2018, developed and patented the glyphosate molecule and retained exclusive rights to glyphosate in the US until its US patent expired in September 2000 (the patent expired earlier in other countries). As a result, today, many similar products use glyphosate as an active ingredient.

In 2015, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer identified glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen. Despite evidence that Monsanto and other producers of glyphosate-based herbicides knew of the probable cancer-causing effects of their products, consumers were not properly warned of the potential dangers. States with the highest risk of glyphosate exposure include Minnesota, North Dakota, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa and Ohio. On average, Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma takes up to 10 years to emerge. Even if the exposure to glyphosate occurred outside of one’s home state, The Steinberg Law Group can still obtain the maximum financial compensation available.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma or Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia and used Roundup or other glyphosate-based herbicides after 1990, the Roundup Options Legal Center of Minnesota encourages calling (888) 891-2200 or visiting www.roundupoptions.com for more information on how The Steinberg Law Group can help.

Aaron Safier of Sapphire Wealth Advisory Group to be Featured on CUTV News Radio


TEANECK, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With economists forecasting a potential recession, many young professionals are facing a grim reality: they have no substantial savings for the future.

The good news is financial success is not a linear progression. It’s a moving target. Money doesn’t grow on trees, but it can grow, and there are simple solutions to meet your financial objectives. All it takes is some “swag.”

Aaron Safier is the founder of Sapphire Wealth Advisory Group (SWAG) dedicated to helping young professionals develop a financial strategy that will help achieve their long-term goals.

“Our work is all about empowering and enlightening young professionals to make critical financial decisions today for a better tomorrow,” says Safier. “As younger people, we can’t project the next 50 years of our life, but the earlier we start, the better off we might be in the future.”

Safier says growing wealth is a constant work in progress, and it does require some level of discipline, but once you become systematic in how your money is spent, allocated, saved, rolled-over, you can make better decisions.

“Clients who work with me are getting educated,” says Safier, “and I’m going to work with them as their advocate and their cheerleader, through a systematic approach to allocating their money in the necessary buckets.”

“Whether it’s buying a house, buying a car, putting their children or grandchildren through private school or college, the question is: how are they going to get there? What I try to share with young professionals is we need to start somewhere,” says Safier. “I call it the Young Professional Starter Kit. We’re building an infrastructure: the necessary accounts to protect yourself should something jeopardize their income. You’re defending your assets while putting money away for retirement.”

Safier has worked in the financial services industry for 14 years, specializing in wealth management. At 36, he can offer the financial literacy many young professionals his age typically lack.

“There’s a lot of compassion in the work we do,” says Safier. “Ninety percent of what we do is therapy, but helping people is what I really enjoy: understanding what makes them tick and using that to develop solutions to accomplish their goals.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Aaron Safier in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on October 23rd at 11am EDT.

Feskov Human Reproduction Group Brings Attention To The World’s Rapidly Decreasing Birth Rate


Feskov Human Reproduction Group

Feskov Human Reproduction Group

The Ukrainian surrogate motherhood clinic announces a solution with a method for deferred motherhood.

in the life of the woman and during her pursuit of success, there is not always the time for family and the birth of children…reproductive clinics should be the first to address this pressing topic.”

— Vladislav Feskov, Head of the FHRG Surrogate Motherhood Center

KHARKOV, UKRAINE , October 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Feskov Human Reproduction Group, a Ukrainian surrogate motherhood clinic, has undertaken a study on birth rate reduction. Over the past few decades, women have a lesser focus on family and motherhood. Their priority is education, career and personal development. As a result of these social changes, low birth rates are being increasingly observed in economically developed countries, namely, the USA, Korea, Australia and most European countries.

According to a study carried out by the Lancet Medical Journal, “In 1950, every woman gave birth, on the average, to 4.7 children during her entire life. In 2017, the figure was half as low, that is, 2.4.” These changes were caused by an overall increase in women’s employment, their interest in work and unavailability of the partner to create a family.

Based on this data and the general desire of women for development, the clinic has created a social project called Social Freezing.

The project is designed to explain what deferred motherhood is and why it is relevant. Participants will be offered the opportunity to undergo a free procedure of cryopreservation of oocytes, that is, the freezing of healthy eggs, with the ability to save them for five years for their successful use in the future.

As part of this social project, five women from around the world will be chosen. They will tell their story about how they went through the oocyte cryopreservation procedure and why modern women should consider this option. The stories of five women will set an example for millions of others. The egg freezing provides the ability to save time, the most valuable thing we have.

“Social Freezing is a social project that presents the stories of successful women. It will tell people that, in the life of the woman and during her pursuit of success, there is not always the time for family and the birth of children. I am sure that reproductive clinics should be the first to address this pressing topic. The FHRG team hopes that we can cover millions and tell them about this problem”, says Vladislav Feskov, , an obstetrician-gynecologist, member of ASRM and ESHRE and Head of the FHRG Surrogate Motherhood Center.

The mission of this social project is to ensure that society learns about the low birth rate problem, and that women can consider the cryopreservation of oocytes. A happy delayed motherhood is possible, regardless of career or personal development.

The FHRG clinic calls upon the media, opinion leaders, public organizations and foundations to disseminate this information so that they also become a part of the project that can change the lives of modern women.
More information about this social project can be found on our website.

About the Feskov Human Reproduction Group

Professor Aleksandr Feskov’s clinic, founded in 1995, is currently a modern IVF clinic. The growing demand for surrogate motherhood has become the basis for creating our own surrogate motherhood center. The clinic has modern medical equipment which allows the physician to carry out not only the IVF / ICSI (in vitro fertilization/ intra cytoplasmic sperm injection) procedure, but also pre-implantation genetic diagnostics, to determine the sex of embryos and select morphologically normal spermatozoa for ICSI.

Kurt Nederveld of Rainstar Capital Group to be Featured on CUTV News Radio


GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, October 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On the hit reality television show Shark Tank entrepreneurs pitch their businesses to billionaire tycoons who decide whether or not to invest in them. While landing a deal with these crafty “sharks” is certainly a big break for these starry eyed hopefuls what if there was an even better option? Working with a company where you don’t have to give up any equity in your business and still prosper beyond your wildest dreams?

Kurt Nederveld is Founder and CEO of Rainstar Capital Group one of the largest and most prestigious debt advisory firms in the country.

“We have strategically built an extremely unique lending platform featuring 250 top-notch business, equipment and commercial real estate lenders” says Kurt. “Basically we have every credit box and interest rate box covered for those financing solutions. We are an extremely efficient process driven firm, very transparent, while placing a high focus on education as those are the necessary elements to help our clients secure growth financing.”

Prior to starting Rainstar Capital Group, Kurt owned and managed a successful marketing company that helped him obtain many lucrative business contacts in the capital markets. Kurt has also faced numerous uphill battles and challenges including being diagnosed with testicular cancer and having two major surgeries as the cancer had spread to his lymph nodes, where he had to have thirty eight staples put in his chest. Most recently Kurt suffered the terrible loss of one of his newborn twin daughters Ava Grace who was born premature but Kurt, a devout Christian man, stands by his faith and that “life teaches you important, valuable lessons.”

“No matter what adversities you face you can always overcome as long as you stick to your core values and never stop growing and advancing,” says Kurt.

Kurt and his team have developed a digital magazine, “Rainstar Capital Group’s Ultimate Lending Guide” that highlights all 250 of the lender’s products allowing clients to see who it is they have backing their platform. Additionally, the firm has also shot over three hundred educational webinars and videos on all their different product lines which have proved invaluable tools for their clients to utilize.

“That’s how we have branded ourselves, as growth capital strategists, by assisting these companies to access capital they require to fuel their growth curve,” says Kurt. “The fact is, business owners are skillful at growing their companies but sometimes don’t always understand the capital markets. And we provide them with the funds their banks cannot or if they have bank financing we show them how to access second lien debt to assist with growth.”

Kurt and his team also offer a specific process called “The Working Capital Blueprint” which specifies a road map to different companies to show them which product they qualify for based on their cash flow, credit and collateral.

“This specific blueprint is custom designed for our clients depicting step by step which product lines they can acquire to access capital to be able to fulfill their growth curve,” says Kurt, “What is great as well is we have built our over twenty industry specific blueprints with the main types of clients we deal with such as manufacturing, distribution, wholesale, e-commerce, construction, trucking, transportation, maritime, logistics, packaging, etc.”

Rainstar Capital group is unequivocally revolutionizing how companies can flourish showing businesses how to access additional working capital above and beyond their bank product to be able to thrive effortlessly through its one stop shopping platform for financing solutions.

“I am also an Elder at my local church and I provide counseling to help people going through hardships like I have,” says Kurt. “My own personal struggles have been tough but has also helped me become who I am and I try to give back to others. Life is never easy, there are problems and hardships, but all of us can absolutely prevail.”

ROCKWOOL Group launches Rockflow rainwater management system for urban areas


Rockflow is installed underneath Langeland Plads, a newly renovated public square in Frederiksberg, Denmark

Rockflow is installed underneath Langeland Plads, a newly renovated public square in Frederiksberg, Denmark

Designed to help urban areas protect people and valuable infrastructure from urban flooding caused by extreme rain events.

ROCKWOOL International A/S (NASDAQ:ROCK-A.CO)

Before, we talked about once-in-a-hundred-years rain events, but those can happen three times a year now”

— Ole Larsen, Director of CALL Copenhagen

HEDEHUSENE, DENMARK, October 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Damaging floods caused by extreme rain events are happening with greater frequency around the world.(1)

For urban areas with lots of asphalt, inadequate sewer systems and limited unbuilt spaces to absorb the water, this means a rising risk of urban flooding. To help communities protect residents, valuable infrastructure and businesses from the impacts of these extreme rains, ROCKWOOL Group is proud to launch Rockflow from Lapinus.

“Rockflow gives urban areas a new and cost efficient tool to manage the increasing risk of floods due to sudden heavy rainfall. It helps channel the excess water to the underground Rockflow buffer and thus away from sewer systems so communities can keep their businesses, public squares, parks, playgrounds and homes dry,” says Thomas Kähler, Senior VP, Head of Systems Division at ROCKWOOL Group.

Creating urban rain resilience

Here’s how it works: A buffer of specially engineered stone wool is installed underground with connections to a system of pipes, drains and gullies. As it rains, the water is quickly absorbed and then gradually discharged over the following 24-hours into the surrounding soil or sewer system. The stone wool in the Rockflow system can absorb 95 percent of its volume in water. Note: Stone wool made for insulation purposes does the opposite, it repels water.

Some other key characteristics of Rockflow are:

• Strength. Rockflow is designed to be installed under roads and surfaces that may have heavy human or machine traffic; Rockflow is strong like stone even when it is full of water.
• Flexibility. Easily cut-to-fit, Rockflow is ideal for city renovation projects where existing underground infrastructure like cables and piping require adaptability.

Is your city prepared?

“Before, we talked about once-in-a-hundred-years rain events, but those can happen three times a year now,” says Ole Larsen, Director of CALL Copenhagen, an organization advising the city of Copenhagen and others in Denmark on climate adaptation and green growth.

Larsen advised ROCKWOOL and the city of Frederiksberg, which borders Copenhagen, on a recent installation of Rockflow underneath Langeland Plads, a newly renovated public square.

It is an example of many measures city leaders are taking to make Copenhagen and its environs more resilient to extreme rain events like the one that happened on July 2, 2011 when 100mm of rain fell on the city in two hours, flooding 80,000 homes and causing damages of more than EUR 1 billion.(2)

“The cities of Frederiksberg and Copenhagen already know the risks and what’s at stake. For all cities, it’s far better—and far cheaper— if we take the needed steps now to make them resilient to these more frequent and heavy rains,” says Larsen.

Rockflow is currently available in Denmark and the Netherlands. Over 10,000 m3 are installed in 40+ locations under roads, schools, playgrounds, parks, public squares and more. In the coming years, ROCKWOOL plans to introduce Rockflow to other key markets affected by extreme rainfall.

Facts

• Stone wool is made from volcanic basalt rock and is fully recyclable.
• A Rockflow stone wool buffer can absorb up to 95 percent of its volume in water—950 litres per m3—within 10 minutes, making it ideal for managing extreme rain events. Note: stone wool made for insulation purposes does the opposite, it repels water.
• Rockflow is strong like stone even when full of water
• Because it of its strength, Rockflow requires only 35 cm of coverage under the road surface.
