8Jay And The Americans @ Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club - Don't miss Jay And The Americans on Valentines Day Weekend Saturday Feb 12, 2011 @ Citrus Hills Golf & Country Club Hernando FL. There will be two separate shows at 6:00 PM & 8:15 PM. Tickets are on sale now -call 352-746-7633. ONLY IN AMERICA In one of the greatest turnabouts in Rock and Roll history, the group JAY AND THE AMERICANS, started by four teenage boys in Sandy Yagudas Brooklyn basement 40 years ago, have bought back their rightful name in federal court, restoring the name to its rightful owners. Very few bands have ever reached the musical heights of JAY AND THE AMERICANS. From 1962- 1971, this group charted an unprecedented 12 top 10 records. With three original band members, Sandy Yaguda (aka Deane) founding member, Howie Kirschenbaum (aka Kane) original member, and Marty Kupersmith (aka Sanders), original member, plus the addition of Jay Reincke, the third Jay and probably the best yet, .. they have recreated the authentic sound of all of . . their great hits that everyone remembers. JAY AND THE AMERICANS first record was TONIGHT (from the Broadway Musical WEST SIDE STORY), and their breakout hit song was SHE CRIED. JAY AND THE AMERICANS next chart hit was ONLY IN AMERICA, followed by top ten hits COME A LITTLE BIT CLOSER and later THIS MAGIC MOMENT? Where were you when you first heard CARA MIA? JAY AND THE AMERICANS pay tribute to the late ROY ORBISON with CRYING, and no other band in history has sold more copies of the song SOME ENCHANTED EVENING than JAY AND THE AMERICANS!!! NEIL DIAMONDs first hit song released, SUNDAY AND ME was recorded by none other than JAY AND THE AMERICANS, who have toured with such legendary artists as ROY ORBISON, THE BEATLES, and THE ROLLING STONES. JAY AND THE AMERICANS were a major force in starting the Rock and Roll revival with their album WAX MUSEUM, where they paid tribute to many great Rock and Roll artists with their versions of such great songs as HUSHABYE, WALKIN IN THE RAIN, and a song that reached the top ten THIS MAGIC MOMENT. You will hear all of these songs, which are featured in the new JAY AND THE AMERICANS show. In 2002, JAY AND THE AMERICANS were inducted into the VOCAL GROUP HALL OF FAME, placing them amo ng the greatest vocal groups in Rock and Roll history.

20Renowned Author to Visit Stuart, Fl - Renowned Author to Visit Stuart, FL


Come Meet Brigitte!!
Brigitte Gabriel to Speak in Stuart, Florida

Martin County Tea Party invites you to a special ACT! for America event featuring Brigitte Gabriel, ACT! for America President. This event will be held in Stuart, Florida, and is free and open to the public!

February 24, 2011
7:00 P.M. - 9:00 P.M.
First Baptist Church of Stuart
201 W. Ocean Blvd.
Stuart, Florida

The events of the past eighteen months have been a sobering wake-up call to America. Without question, the threats radical Islam poses to America have increased, and with the election of a new Congress prospects for positive changes to address this threat are promising.

Brigitte will discuss these threats to our safety and security, such as...

° The growing threat of homegrown jihad.

° How terrorists are exploiting our porous southern border.

° The increasingly militant—and successful—effort by Islamists worldwide to suppress free speech and criminalize any criticism of Islam.

° How the various actions and overtures taken by the Obama administration have put us at greater risk—and why.

° How Islamic shariah law is creeping into America.

But even more important than this, Brigitte will spell out the strategies and tactics ACT! for America is employing to effectively fight back against these threats.

Brigitte's message will be illuminating, at times disturbing and even shocking—but ultimately inspiring, empowering, and filled with hope!

You will hear first-hand how ACT! for America is successfully rolling back the tide of radical Islam...how we don't have to live in fear or resign ourselves to the inevitability of the threats arrayed against us...and how we will prevail.

We will also be showing our high-quality production ACT! for America video. This 13 minute video tells the story behind ACT! for America, how ACT! for America has become the largest national security grassroots organization in America, and how ACT! for America is rolling back the rising tide of radical Islam.

I know those of you who have heard Brigitte will agree—you don't want to miss this! It will be an event people will be talking about for a long time to come!

Invite your friends and come join us in Stuart, Florida. We look forward to seeing you on February 24th.

18 - 19Human Subjects Research Seminar: Current Regulations under FDA and HIPAA - Summary: MentorHealth will hold a two-day, in-person seminar in Burlingame, CA on the topic, “Human Subjects Research Seminar: Current Regulations under FDA and HIPAA” on September 18th & 19th 2014 (Thursday and Friday). Sarah Fowler-Dixon, an Education Specialist and instructor with Washington University School of Medicine, will be the speaker at this two-day session.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Venue, date and timings: The venue for this seminar is Hotel Courtyard Miami Downtown 200 SE Second Avenue - Miami, Florida 33131 USA. The seminar will be on September 18th & 19th 2014, from 8 AM to 5 PM.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What the seminar is about:
This two-day seminar will provide the foundation for the application, concepts and theories of clinical research.
Protection of human subjects and everything relating to it is of paramount importance for those involved in or wanting to be involved in research dealing with human subjects or an individual's private identifiable information. For these individuals, professionals and companies, it is extremely important to understand that there are federal regulations that must be followed. There are also state statutes, institutional policies, federal guidance documents, and ethical codes that guide the conduct of the research. This is done to ensure that the research not only meets the regulatory requirements but also that it is conducted in an ethical manner containing adequate protections for the individuals who elect to enroll in the research or allow their information to be used for research.
However, the challenge that this position presents is that the guidelines –that also provide interpretation of the regulations –are not always as clear as they might appear upon first reading them.
This seminar will clarify on these regulations. The speaker will not only provide an introduction or refresher of the regulations; she will provide attendees with the opportunity to discuss and learn how these regulations, ethical codes and guidance documents get applied in different situations, as well. This information can then be used to help attendees in their day-to-day decision making when confronted with situations or questions regarding how to handle issues that do arise (e.g. a participant not showing for a scheduled appointment, an event that is unexpected occurs, someone who does not speak wishes to enroll in the study, a participate signed an outdated consent document, etc.) when conducting human subjects.
The learning acquired over these two days will help attendees learn about the historical evolution of research, and current regulations and guidelines including the Common Rule, FDA regulations and HIPAA. This session will discuss site and study staff responsibilities in the conduct and reporting of research, types of studies and the regulatory requirements that apply to different study designs. It will also discuss a variety of research including genetic, drug, device, and studies that use off-site or community partners. Current examples will be used and the audience will be invited to share their experiences and information.
The following areas are covered at this seminar:
o Department of Health and Human Services regulations, 45 CFR 46
o Office for Human Research Protections Guidance
