CreditCardReviews.com Provides Credit Card Advice From Real People
CreditCardReviews.com gives more power to the consumer when shopping for a credit card. The website uses a crowd-sourcing model where credit cards are displayed or “ranked” in their respective sections based on the votes or ratings given to them by cardholders and credit card experts. 

“The reality is that decisions about credit card selection are swayed heavily by product placement on credit card shopping sites. The placement of credit cards on personal finance sites is determined in many cases by advertising dollars with the quality of the product playing a lesser role,” says Todd Serpico, Director of User Experience at CreditCardReviews.com. “We believe that card placements based on user ratings and unbiased expert opinion provides for a much more honest and balanced shopping environment. There is so much power given to the site owners in this industry and we think it’s about time to give more back to the people who need it most, the consumers.” (read more)

ValueStockGuide.com Helps Individuals Manage Their Own Investments
Busy professionals looking to manage their own investments are ill served by financial media today that focuses on short term issues at the cost of addressing the long term merits of an investment. The benefits of taking a long term approach and adopting a value investment philosophy have been well proven to be superior in multiple studies over a typical investment horizon (Morningstar/Ibbotson [PDF]). However, most investors today do not have time or desire to conduct the due diligence required to build a practical self managed portfolio.

ValueStockGuide.com [url http://valuestockguide.com] helps fill this need by providing pre-qualified stock ideas for further research. This greatly cuts down on the number of stocks an investor needs to review as they make their portfolio selections. The site also provides expert analysis and commentary and publishes educational articles that helps investors make sound investment choices, filtering out the short term noise in the market. Interested investors can also become premium members and receive hand picked recommendations...(read more)

tell your twitter followers.

www.train-aid.co.uk Delivers Educational First Aid at Work ResourcesTrain-aid.co.uk is a first aid orientated website which has just released a new range of educational video tutorials, which aim to help people who are unable to attend a course.

A national survey commissioned by DK estimated that around 77% of people either do not know how to administer Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) or would be unsure of the protocol. It is also estimated that around 1 in 3 people would not know what to do if their toddler was choking.

These startling statistics prove that there simply isn’t enough first aiders present when an emergency strikes. People lead busy lives, many of whom do not get the opportunity to attend a first aid course through time or financial restrictions.

Train Aid’s new blog helps these people by creating quick fire video tutorials, which aim to teach basic skills in less than two minutes. The video blog entries are also backed up by text, which talks through the skills step-by-step. Of course these videos are no substitute for genuine first aid at work courses, but they are the next best thing for those who are unable to attend. One example course is titled Emergency First Aid at Work...read more

Wdebate.com Opens Registration for Live Online Video Debate Website

Gun control is pointless. Women shouldn't be allowed in military combat. Creationism doesn't belong in public schools. Do you agree? Disagree? If you hold strong, intelligent opinions on today's most pressing issues, then you're a perfect candidate for Wdebate.com, a new and unique venue for watching and participating in live online video debate.

Since the first televised presidential debates in 1960, the persuasive power of visual argument has had an enormous influence on contemporary culture. Yet despite the many technological advances of the past 50 years, average citizens have lacked a public forum in which they too can engage in video debate. But now, they have one: Wdebate.com, the first live online video debate website.

Wdebate.com is:

- A first-of-its-kind website for live, one-on-one video debate on specific hot-button issues
- An intelligent, socially engaged online community that participates via watching, commenting on, and recording debates at Wdebate.com
- A platform for broadcasting debates to a broader audience on blogs and websites via Wdebate.com’s video embedding capability

Mens-Wedding-Rings.com Focuses on the Groom

URL: http://www.mens-wedding-rings.com tweet.

With its uniquely focused product selection, Mens-Wedding-Rings.com (MWR) offers grooms a one-stop shop for finding the wedding ring of their dreams. Over the past year Mens-Wedding-Rings has focused on expanding its already successful business, diversifying its market presence and improving the customer shopping experience. 

Amid these key changes, MWR has remained true to the core values that made it so popular with shoppers in the first place: selling high quality men’s wedding bands at everyday low prices and offering superior customer service.

As brick-and-mortar stores continue to lose their foothold in the jewelry market, Mens-Wedding-Rings.com allows customers to find the best deals on men’s wedding bands from the convenience of their own homes. Unlike other prominent online jewelry stores, Mens-Wedding-Rings has been laser-like in its product selection – there are no women’s engagement rings or other accessories to wade through. While technically a small business, Mens-Wedding-Rings competes with some of the largest online retailers of men’s wedding rings. 

Unlike these bigger corporations, MWR’s more streamlined approach has lent it the agility with which to respond instantaneously to customer demand and feedback. One prime example is MWR’s selection of men’s large size rings (one of the biggest online), which was developed after shoppers commented on the difficulty of finding attractive wedding rings that would fit their fingers...read more

Property-abroad.com is a primary destination for the overseas property buyer or investor.  The site was founded in 2000 and has recently been re-launched by CEO Les Calvert

Calvert commented about the site, "Property-abroad.com originally offered reliable information on the overseas property market, which was then receiving a lot of media attention and hyperbole.  As the site gained respect in the community it served, it grew in size and scope and came to be regarded as one of the internet's foremost overseas property information resource.  As a result, property-abroad.com is now in a position to provide a purchaser of holiday property, an investor in apartments or houses for rental or a would-be expatriate with all the information he or she needs, beginning with property listings for countries across the world and taking in legal and financial information for the countries the site covers".

HypothyroidMom.com Launches Thyroid Advocacy Site For Moms With Hypothyroidism

URL: http://hypothyroidmom.comtweet.

The Thyroid Federation International estimates there are up to 300 million people worldwide with thyroid dysfunction, yet over half are unaware of their condition. The mission of HypothyroidMom.com is clear - to drive awareness.

Hypothyroid Mom reveals research on the dangers of hypothyroidism and pregnancy, including miscarriage, still birth, infertility, maternal anemia, pre-eclampsia, placental abruption, postpartum hemorrhage, premature delivery, low birth weight, and deficits in intellectual development in infants. The literature sited also links an under active thyroid to heart disease, diabetes, cancer and Alzheimer's. Despite the research connecting hypothyroidism to many of the deadliest diseases of our time, the lack of awareness is pervasive.

Founder Dana Trentini was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, an underactive thyroid, following the birth of her first son in 2006. She trusted her doctors never once thinking they might not know everything about hypothyroidism, especially when she became pregnant again in late 2008. She would later learn that her NYC doctors did not know enough about hypothyroidism, especially the dangers of hypothyroidism and pregnancy. Under their care her TSH, the gold standard for thyroid function, reached levels far above the safe range for pregnancy and she miscarried. On that fateful day, she vowed to research everything there was to know about this disease and warn women everywhere. She fulfilled her vow with the launch of Hypothyroid Mom...read more

LlamaExpeditions.com Launches Peru Tours & Machu Picchu Tours That Make a Difference

URL: http://www.LlamaExpeditions.comtweet.

Travelers who crave an adventure off the beaten path have an exciting new option – with a philanthropic twist. 

Llama Expeditions (www.LlamaExpeditions.com) offers guided tours through Peru, from sightseeing to hiking the Inca trail. In addition to taking in the stunning scenery and experiencing incredible adventure, travelers connect to the country and its people through exclusive access and a chance to make a difference.

Founder Diane Valenti said "I decided that I wanted to provide more than the typical sterile tourist vacation packed with the usual attractions. Instead, our tours give you the opportunity to see how Peruvians really live—to talk with them about their dreams and accomplishments and to learn about the challenges they face. We also visit carefully selected nonprofit and grassroots organizations where you'll have the chance to experience delight in the difference your gifts of healthy food, school supplies, clothing, or sunglasses can make in the lives of some of the world's poorest people".

Llama Expeditions BackGround
The story of Llama Expeditions started in July 2008 when Diane traveled to Peru for the first time with her then 74-year-old, very adventurous Dad. Together they canoed the Amazon, marveled at the wonders of Machu Picchu, and explored the floating islands of Lake Titicaca. In the midst of it all, Diane I fell in love.

Juan was an Inca Trail guide living in Cusco, Peru. After a flurry of e-mail messages and phone calls, she returned to Peru for a different kind of visit. What she didn't know is how different it would be and how it would change her life...read more
