To make this Valentine’s Day extra special, couples staying at Outrigger Reef on the Beach or Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach in Hawaii can say “I do” once more along the Waikiki shore in a traditional Hawaiian vow renewal ceremony.

The ceremony begins with a traditional Hawaiian welcome chant. Couples are then treated to a graceful hula and serenaded with Hawaiian music before being blessed with a gentle sprinkling of sea water and reciting vows in the Hawaiian language. The ceremony concludes with a performance of the beautiful Hawaiian Wedding Song, accompanied by a hula. A complimentary photo and commemorative certificate are presented to each couple at the conclusion of the ceremony to remember the day.

The Valentine’s Day program will begin at 7:30 a.m. on February 14, 2014, at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach. The Hawaiian ceremony is open to guests of both the Outrigger Reef on the Beach and the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach.

Waltham, MA (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

Identity theft continues to be a problem across the United States and the world.

From (Feb. 20, 13):

Some 12.6 million Americans were victimized by ID theft in 2012, the second-highest total since the Federal Trade Commission began counting victims in 2003 and roughly 1 million more than 2011, according to the survey by Javelin Strategy and Research. The record – 13.9 million victims – was set in 2009.

Recently, over 40 million Target customers’ credit and debit card information was stolen.

From the WINK News website (Dec. 22, 13)

“You could see something 3 months, 6 months, 9 months down the road. Keep an eye on your accounts. Eventually people are going to forget and that’s when the criminals are going to use the card numbers again,” said identity theft expert Carrie Kerskie..

In a news report from March 19, 2013, WMC-TV reported of identity theft where rental applications were the source of information for the fraud.

U.S. postal inspectors and the Justice Department are working a case in which each of the victims were renters who filled out applications at the same apartment complex. “Somebody who worked for the apartment management complex was able to obtain copies of their driver’s licenses,” said U.S. Postal Inspector Blanca Alvarez. The identity thief then applied for student loans with the victims’ birth dates and Social Security numbers.

Recovering from identity theft can be a long and painfully expensive process.

To help assist rental applicants from potential identity theft, announces SmartMove®, a program designed specifically to protect renter’s critical data and information.

Adam Almeida, President and CEO of states: “SmartMove® helps rental applicants control the data they share with landlords on a written application by utilizing a secure internet portal and data exchange with TransUnion.”’s SmartMove® allows a tenant to verify their identity via TransUnion, a well known credit bureau and information provider. Potential tenant’s interact and exchange information via a secure on-line portal. Specific data, such as social security numbers and birth dates, are never fully revealed to landlords or property managers. Combined with the lack of a written application, a document that could be lost or misused, and masked information to landlords and property managers, tenants are better protected from identity theft.

There are other benefits for a renter using SmartMove®.

Almeida continues: “The potential renter enters their own information into SmartMove® thereby allowing only completed applications to move forward in the process. Also, by entering their own data the potential renter provides legal consent for their information to be reviewed and verified. Subsequently, the tenant screening process is quicker as is the overall speed of the application process. Lastly, it should also be noted that the tenant’s credit is not negatively affected by a credit search as the request comes from the potential applicant and not an outside third-party.”

And SmartMove® is a valuable tool for single or small unit landlords and property managers as well.

Almeida states: “SmartMove® provides three things a landlord is always looking for: Quick access to data, comprehensive reports, and prompt exchange of information.”

Access of information for decision making is almost immediate as the tenant provides all critical personal information directly to TransUnion via a safe and secure internet portal. Subsequently, a comprehensive report, inclusive of credit and criminal history information, as well as any additional reports a landlord might require, is created. And, in the end, the report will provide a leasing recommendation in minutes.”

SmartMove® also provides for flexibility in payment terms, either from the applicant directly or the landlord. Further, there are no minimum usage requirements.

Almeida continues: “SmartMove® is the most practical, efficient and secure manner to gather information for tenant applications. By utilizing a secure internet portal, a tenant’s critical information is held secure and, subsequently, greatly decreases the potential for identity fraud.” is a third-party background screening agency that provides tenant screening solutions to rental properties of all sizes. With SmartMove® has the ideal solution for landlords and tenants alike. Safe, Secure, and protected information will greatly reduce the risk of identity fraud, and that is just one benefit.

BRM Announces Cylinder Honing Tools for Universal Joints; Flexible Hones Improve Surface Finish of U-Joint Bores, Other Auto Parts

BRM Announces Cylinder Honing Tools for Universal Joints; Flexible Hones Improve Surface Finish of U-Joint Bores, Other Auto Parts

BRM Flex-Hone® Tools for U-Joint Bores

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), maker of cylinder hones and automotive brushes, is announcing Flex-Hone® tools for surface finishing the bores of universal joints. Flexible hones are used in a range of automotive applications, including engine block honing, brake rotor finishing, cylinder wall deglazing, and cross-hole deburring.

Automotive Repairs and U-Joint Replacement

Universal joints help to transfer power from a car or truck’s engine to its wheels. These drivetrain components have four “legs,” each of which ends in a needle-bearing cup. Two cups connect to the driveshaft. The other two cups attach with yokes to the transmission or rear differential, depending on the vehicle.

Although routine automotive maintenance can extend component life, universal couplings can wear and fail. Some vehicle owners prefer to have a professional auto technician replace bad U-joints. Other car and truck owners choose to replace universal joints themselves, often as part of a larger DIY project that includes replacing related auto parts such ball joints and hubs.

Bad U-Joints and Good Automotive Tools

Such was the case with a mechanic and member of Turbo Diesel Register (TDR), an on-line automotive forum where users ask questions, get answers, and describe their automotive repairs. For ENafzinger, the owner of a Dodge RAM 3500 truck, the hardest part of a U-joint replacement project was loosening the old universal joints.    

Removing the U-joints deformed the yokes, but the truck owner used handheld tools to restore their proper shape. The DIY mechanic then used what he called a “cylinder dingle ball hone” to “clean up the U-joint bores.” The cylinder hone that he used, the Flex-Hone® from Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), is sometimes called a ball hone or dingleberry hone because of its distinctive abrasive globules.

Flexible Honing Tools

Flexible hones are known for more than just their abrasive “balls” or “dingleberries,” however. Self-centering, self-aligning to the bore, and self-compensating for wear, BRM’s cylinder honing tools mount in handheld electric drills and are easy-to-use. Rigid, elaborate setups aren’t required, and the Flex-Hone® tool imparts a plateau finish that optimizes lubrication.

Flex-Hone® tools are always specified in an oversized condition (larger than the bore) and are available for any size or type of cylinder. Standard BRM cylinder hones range in diameter from 4mm to 36”, and come in 8 abrasive types and 11 different grit selections. The Flex-Hone® Resource Guide, a free downloadable technical book from Brush Research, provides more information on tool selection.

About Brush Research Manufacturing

Brush Research Manufacturing (BRM), makers of flexible honing tools and automotive brushes, is located in Los Angeles, California. For 55 years, BRM has been solving difficult finishing problems with brushing technology. BRM’s Flex-Hone® tool is the standard against which all other automotive surface finishing solutions are compared.

Looking To Find True Love? Here?s Real Dating Advice For Finding Love, And How To Find A Relationship Perfect For You, By Relationship Expert Sheila Paxton.

Looking To Find True Love? Here’s Real Dating Advice For Finding Love, And How To Find A Relationship Perfect For You, By Relationship Expert Sheila Paxton.

Boulder, California (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

Do you find yourself in the same unfulfilling relationships over and over? Sheila Paxton, one of the national leading certified relationship coaches and the founder of – a site that helps people break bad dating habits and quickly identify a perfect match – proves the problem is most likely a “broken picker.”

“Typically, people visit Fit4Love because they’re looking for dating advice to protect them from dating people who turn out to be completely wrong for them,” said Paxton, who created the Fit4Love community to help people find true love. “Our goal is to help people break stubborn destructive patterns, discover their own likes, dislikes and core values and then quickly identify whether a potential date has similar qualities.”

One of the skills teaches is to listen closely on first dates, Paxton said. “All too often, singles engage in fanciful daydreaming about a potential future together – what their children might look like – instead of focusing on the here and now and what’s actually being said.”

To do so, people must learn to ask specific qualifying questions on first dates, she believes. “Let’s face it, people are on their best behavior on a first date, so being able to really listen and easily identify any red flags is a must,” Paxton pointed out. “If too many of those flags are popping up – it’s time to sprint in the other direction as fast as you can!”

Pamela, a 31-year-old corporate lawyer, learned the skill of active listening after a series of devastating breakups. “I couldn’t understand why I kept making the same horrible choices in men, I kept thinking thoughts like why cant I find love,” she noted. “After finding Fit4Love, I learned how to stop making those same mistakes over and over again. Now, when I do meet the right person, it won’t be guesswork any longer – I’ll know it!”

For Pamela, the first order of business was clearly defining her own core values, she explained. “I just wrote them all down on paper, and that really helped me to know my own heart. For example, honesty, spirituality and family are paramount to me. So, if I hear my date casually say, ‘You know, I haven’t spoken to my mom in 10 years’ … the date is over as far as I’m concerned. I’ve also learned not to rush relationships, and to truly get to know somebody before becoming involved.”

A staggeringly high percent of Paxton’s clients are dissatisfied with their online dating experiences and just want to know how to find a relationship. She says “nearly 100% of the people we work with are fed up with online dating.” Paxton continues: “The fact is that your past dating nightmares, whether they started online or offline, are probably not your fault. Most online dating websites make their money on the monthly fees they charge. If their customers found a perfect match in the first month, that dating site would lose any future fees. Our mission is to help people understand their own ‘picker,’ so they can stop making the same mistakes, and finally meet the love of their life.”
