Sim Shalom Online Synagogue Introduces a Virtual “Tree of Life”


New York, NY (PRWEB) November 03, 2014

The Sim Shalom Online Synagogue has created and implemented a virtual “Tree Of Life” for its growing congregation. This centuries-old symbol can be utilized for a panoply of contemporary announcements – including yahrtzeits, deaths, weddings, anniversaries, births, and b’nai mitzvoth;

The Sim Shalom Tree of Life is dedicated to the memory of Ernest Anisz (Yitzchak ben Yehuda) and Naomi Anisz (Naomi Leah bat Iona Pezl) z”l. A leaf on the Sim Shalom can be purchased for $ 36. In addition to listing names you can include a photo and brief bio about the memorialized person. Leaves may be used to honor the dead as well as to celebrate joyful occasions.

“The Tree of Life is a timeless and benevolent image in our faith, and also has deep-seated relevance in various theological contexts,” said Rabbi Steve Blane, founder of the Sim Shalom congregation. “The tree’s Hebrew name is “Etz Chaim” – which was first found in the Book of Proverbs.”

Etz Chaim is also a common name for yeshivas and synagogues, as well as to works of Rabbinic literatures. It’s also used to describe each of the wooden poles to which the parchment of a Sefer Torah is attached. So, the Tree stands both as a spiritual metaphor and a literal grounding in faith.

“Our Tree of Life now takes its place in a long continuum of worship, harmony, and connectivity,” said Rabbi Blane. “We’re pleased that it integrates a new communication medium into the ongoing tradition, and I’m sure it will serve our congregation well.”

“Wisdom is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her, and happy is everyone that retaineth her.” Proverbs 3:13-18.

Chemistry Assignment Help

Chemistry is a main branch of science that deals with the identification of the substances of which matter is composed; the investigation of their properties and the ways in which they interact, combine, and change; and the use of these processes to form new substances. This field of chemistry is primarily based lies on chemical formulas and more on reactions between various molecules under different conditions.

Mainly chemistry is dividing into organic and inorganic chemistry. Organic chemistry includes the compounds which is composed on carbon skeleton and are hydrocarbons. It is because of the property of catenation i.e. ability to form very long chains of interconnecting C-C bonds that carbon forms infinite number of compounds. In fact, there are more carbon-containing compounds than all the compounds of the other chemical elements combined.

While organic chemistry is closely connected to biochemistry which deals with chemical compounds and chemical reactions in living organisms. Organic Chemistry is primarily devoted to the unique properties of the carbon atom and its compounds. No doubt, these compounds play a critical role in biology and ecology. The other branch of inorganic chemistry deals with the study of reactions and properties of inorganic compounds like organometallic compounds (Any member of a class of substances containing at least one metal-to-carbon bond in which the carbon is part of an organic group.).

Another important part of chemistry is the study of physical chemistry which is concern with energy and dynamics of the chemical reactions and its areas of work are thermodynamics, chemical kinetics and electrochemical.

At online chemistry tutoring platform, we give expert chemistry tutors to world-wide students (Our tutors have Masters or PhD degree in chemistry and years of experience in online teaching). This makes their teaching more effective. They have prior knowledge of the topics which might give the students a hard time.

Dr. Leonard Umanoff, DDS Offers Compassion & New High-Tech Implant System to His Patients


Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) November 28, 2014

Dr. Leonard Umanoff introduces revolutionary implant system that virtually cuts the dental implant process in half. In the world of dentistry, implants are a good choice for replacing damaged teeth, especially when the damage extends into the root. As noted on Dr. Umanoff’s website, implants are hard to tell apart from your natural teeth and help preserve the root structure within the jawbone; changes to jawbone structure as a result of other tooth-replacement methods can easily lead to premature aging around the jawline.

In the Sheepshead Bay neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, Dr. Leonard Umanoff, DDS offers the new high-tech implant system, and a lot more, when it comes to dentistry and care for his patients. Dr. Umanoff professionally designs and installs the replacement implants for his patients. The implant is installed into the bone of the jaw. After the successful healing of the implant Dr. Umanoff is able to put a ceramic crown over it; the new system gives patients not only aesthetically beautiful tooth but also a perfectly functional attribute for biting and chewing.

One of Dr. Umanoff’s biggest points of pride is the care and compassion that he demonstrates towards all of his patients. Dr. Umanoff and his well educated staff greatly value the time of each and every one of their patients; the whole team strives to maintain the schedule to the best of their ability to ensure that patients never have to wait beyond the start of the appointment time. Furthermore, Dr. Umanoff takes pride in the high quality of his work. The first-time success rate of Dr. Umanoff’s dental implant is 99% (percent). Dr.Umanoff is extremely confident in the precision of his work, in the highly unlikely event that an implant fails, Dr. Umanoff offers a complimentary replacement.

As previously stated, Dr. Umanoff’s implant method is on the cutting edge. The new system is called Max Dental Implant. Max hardware is so phenomenal that it can be implanted into the patients jaw bone at the time of extraction. This creates the need for fewer appointments, saving the precious and valuable time of the patient.

Another great advantage of the Max Dental Implant System used by Dr. Umanoff is the healing process time; it heals in about half the time a regular implant would. The system literally shaves off the months of time a patient would need to wait to have the final dental crown is inserted. Generally, a typical implant would require six to nine months of healing before the final crown is inserted, with the advantages of Max Dental Implant System and Dr.Umanoff’s skill the implant can be completed in as little as four months.

With his compassion and innovative dentistry, Dr.Umanoff has over 15 years of experience. Dr. Umanoff was born and raised in Moscow, and studied at the Moscow Medical-Stomatological Institute; with plenty of passion and dedicated work towards his studies he earned the title of doctor. Dr. Umanoff then immigrated to the United States in 1995. After arrival to the United States Dr.Umanoff enrolled at the University of New York College of Dentistry where, with great diligence and enthusiasm, he earned the title Doctor of Dental Surgery. Shortly after graduation Dr. Umanoff opened his first dental practice in 2001, which he successfully runs till this present moment.

Dr. Umanoff believes in continuing his education, and considers himself a “compulsive learner.” After receiving his dental degrees, Dr. Umanoff has gone on to receive advanced tutelage in soft tissue and bone augmentation. Dr.Umanoff he takes continuing education courses throughout the year, as well as technology trainings and trade shows to further his knowledge. One of the things Dr. Umanoff considers most important is sharing the gained knowledge with his patients; he takes pride in empowering his patients to make good choices in regards to their dental health. Prevention is the best medicine.

In the words of Dr. Umanoff, “A healthy smile speaks volumes. Beautiful smile serves as a very important indicator of a healthy body.” It is this principle that guides Dr. Umanoff and his practice to provide high-quality Max Dental Implants, as well as many other high-tech solutions for the smiles of his patients.

Tunnel Boring Machine Industry (TBM) 2019 Forecasts (Global & Chinese) Now Available at ReportsnReports.com


Dallas, TX (PRWEB) November 26, 2014

Tunnel boring machines are used as an alternative to drilling and boring methods in stone and traditional hand mining in soil. The primary benefit of TBM is that it restricts the interference to the nearby floor and creates smooth tunnel walls. This considerably decreases the price of coating the tunnel, and makes these machines suitable to use in urbanized localities. One of the major drawbacks of tunnel boring machines is their high price. Tunnel boring machines are not only expensive to manufacture but they can be difficult to transport as well. However, as contemporary tunnels become longer, the price of tunnel boring machines in comparison to drill and blast turns out to be actually less. This is because of the fact that tunneling with TBMs is much more effective and requires less time. Contemporary tunnel boring machines has transformed the construction method of tunnels. Tunnel boring machine type used for constructing tunnels is chosen on the basis of ground conditions.

Visitability: Planning For The Future


Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) November 02, 2014

In the U.S., most new homeowners are not the first person to live in the house, and more than 21% of these households have at least one person with a physical limitation(1). While older homes can be retrofitted with mobility enhancing features, they are costly and complicated to add in after construction. The best time to add these valuable features is during the initial construction of a home. Visitability is a movement that aims to disrupt the status quo in home construction. It aims to have new accessibility standards for new home construction, similar to the ADA requirements to which public and commercial spaces adhere. The inflexible features of Visitability are:

1.    At least one zero-step entrance approached by an accessible route on a firm surface no steeper than 1:12, proceeding from a driveway or public sidewalk

2.    Wide passage doors at 32”

3.    At least a half bath/powder room on the main floor(2)

A zero-step entrance is one of the most important parts on this trifecta. The ability to both enter and exit a home is the first step in ensuring the safety and mobility of a person with mobility needs. This not only promotes socialization from both home owner and visitor, but eases exiting access in case of an emergency such as fire. These wide passage doors also help in this scenario, as well as increasing mobility comfort inside of the home. A home is not a safe place for an owner nor a visitor if it cannot be easily navigated. This size is taken from the standard width of a wheelchair, with an additional 3” of clearance on each side. The third point, having an accessible full or half bathroom on the main floor, is another basic need for both homeowners and visitors. Most existing homes do not comply with these standards, and these modifications become pricy if implemented after a home is constructed. To this point, Visitability standards are specifically for homes that are newly constructed, as implementation is both cheaper and easier.

While Visitability proponents ask that this movement contains only these three tenants, they encourage builders and homeowners to go further in the universal design of their homes. The reason for keeping this list of requirements brief is so that it is easier to pass legislation with streamlined requirements. Other features that are supported by the Visitability movement, but not explicitly listed in their literature, are: a 5’ turning radius in bathrooms, reinforced bathroom walls, accessible power outlets, parking space requirements, and a roll-in shower.

Ella’s Bubbles has many roll-in shower options, including several shower options that are ADA compliant. The Ella Standard Barrier Free Showers have 2 ADA complaint packages, the Plus 24 and the Plus 36. These packages come with a four-legged foldup seat, and a 3 piece set of either 24” or 36” brushed stainless steel grab bars, respectively. Our ADA compliant Deluxe Barrier Free Shower also includes the Four-legged foldup seat and brushed steel grab bar set, but also includes a hand shower with hose and mounts, Hansgrohe interchangeable iBox with pressure balance valve, brushed stainless steel rod and heavy weighted shower curtain, and other accessories. Standard accessories for all Ella Barrier Free Showers include a collapsible dam and a 2” drain with a friction seal.

Another great accessibility option for homes both new and old are the Ella Acrylic walk in bathtubs. These tubs have several mobility friendly features, such as Grab bars, extensions on the controls, and molded seat that can be raised to 17” with an optional 2” custom seat cushion. It also includes a beautiful stainless steel door and our Dual Drain technology, allowing 80 second quick drain capability.
