DENVER (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Made with creamy satisfying Greek yogurt, TCBY’s newest flavor, Wildberry Greek, is a protein-packed brand of frozen yogurt. The refreshing summertime treat is available in all TCBY locations on the first day of summer, June 21st.
“Wildberry Greek is loaded with strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries making it a deliciously healthy way to cool down during the hot summer months ahead,” said Neal Courtney, interim Chief Executive Officer of TCBY’s parent company, Famous Brands International. Wildberry Greek is only 110 calories per 4-ounce serving, and provides eight grams of protein and four grams of fiber.
TCBY continues to build on the success of its first-to-market Greek frozen yogurt. Wildberry Greek makes for a perfect meal replacement. One ten-ounce serving of Wildberry Greek has twice the fiber (10 grams), 10% more protein (20 grams), 67% more calcium, and more than double the daily value of vitamins D and A, and calcium, than a 6-inch sub from a large national sandwich chain.
"Consumers look to Greek yogurt as a satisfying, filling and healthy option. In fact, Greek yogurt is 76 percent more likely to be eaten as a meal replacement," said Dr. Wayne Geilman, who developed the product for TCBY. "Greek fro-yo moves beyond just a snack or treat, serving up a more robust meal option and including toppings such as fruit, honey and granola." With over 40 toppings, Wildberry Greek’s strawberry, blueberry and raspberry flavor profile is the perfect frozen yogurt to mix and match any topping combination.

Boulder, CO (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Taking part in the largest U.S. air quality field project in decades, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is working with partners to study pollution in the Southeast. The study looks at the impact of chemical reactions occurring between human-related pollution and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from vegetation.
The project, the Southern Oxidant and Aerosol Study (SOAS), runs through July 15. It is part of an unprecedented five-project air quality field campaign.
Combined to leverage equipment and expertise, the five projects are together called the Southeast Atmosphere Study, or SAS. The largest U.S. air quality study in decades, SAS is supported by the National Science Foundation, Environmental Protection Agency, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and Electric Power Research Institute, with participants from about 30 U.S. and international research institutions.
It aims to uncover the controlling processes of biosphere-atmosphere interactions that affect air quality in the U.S. Southeast. It also seeks to uncover clues in the relationship between air chemistry and climate change. The Southeast, unlike much of the world, is experiencing a cooling trend.
Regional variations in a global atmosphere
Atmospheric chemists have long known that human-made pollutants have the potential to interact with plant-emitted VOCs, turning these hydrocarbons into airborne particles, or aerosols, that may then affect air quality and human health. More typically, however, regions have either high pollution levels and low plant-emitted VOC levels, or high plant-emitted VOC levels and less pollution, says NCAR scientist Alex Guenther, a SOAS principal investigator. This is less the case in the Southeast, where the aerosols resulting from the mixing of plant-generated VOCs with human-generated pollution also affect the region’s climate.
“Black aerosols produced by industry, home heating, and transportation absorb incoming solar radiation, increasing global temperatures,” explains Guenther. “However, many of the lighter-colored aerosols, such as those composed of sulfates or organics from vegetation typical of the Southeast, have a cooling effect because they reflect some amount of incoming light back to space.”
“The Southeast Atmosphere Study will illuminate the role of the surface biosphere in producing volatile organic gases that can form new particles, known as secondary organic aerosol (SOA),” says Michael Morgan, National Science Foundation division director for atmospheric and geospace sciences. “The formation of SOA has been observed over many forested regions of the world, and the emissions of these gases may have an important influence on our changing climate.”
Some of the aerosols get carried high into the atmosphere, affecting the temperature over a large area. But many linger in the region where they were emitted, resulting in more localized impacts.
High concentrations of light-colored aerosols such as those expected in the Southeast can reduce the average temperature in that region, offsetting the warming caused by greenhouse gases circulating around the globe. But those same aerosols can trigger chemical reactions that worsen certain types of air pollution, such as ground-level ozone. Complicating matters further, certain types of aerosols affect cloud formation and cloud opacity, both of which can affect the amount of energy trapped in Earth’s atmosphere.
Although computer simulations can replicate some of the influences of aerosols, they can't yet produce the level of detail required for a complete understanding of these complex chemical and atmospheric dynamics, which would lead to more accurate predictions of future air quality and regional climate.
Aircraft and ground sensors aimed at southeastern air
To address these questions and improve observations that may be used to expand the capabilities of climate and chemistry models, the team of SAS/SOAS investigators has brought an unprecedented suite of air sampling equipment and sensors to the region to characterize the chemistry happening in the atmosphere across the southeastern United States this summer. The project, which runs through July 15, is deploying two aircraft, the NSF/NCAR C-130 and the NOAA P-3, to sample air chemistry from the Mississippi River to the Atlantic Ocean, and from the Ohio River Valley to the Gulf of Mexico.
Additional teams of scientists are using ground instruments to measure low-level winds, moisture, temperature, and chemistry. Instrumented towers reaching nearly 150 feet (45 meters) into the air are taking measurements within and above forest canopies.
Additional aircraft and ground sensors deployed by companion programs in SAS will help flesh out the portrait of this unique region.

Spartanburg, SC (PRWEB) June 19, 2013
Spartanburg, South Carolina’s most popular Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep Ram dealer has hired VASS Automotive Customer Testimonial Pages to help infiltrate all major social media streams and dominate search engines. VASS will build a Customer Testimonial Web Page for each customer who buys a vehicle at Spartanburg Dodge. VASS then helps the dealer share the pages in the major social media streams by emailing links to the pages to the customer, the salesperson and the dealership, making easy for everyone to share, like and +1 the pages.
VASS will also do its own promotion for the many pages Spartanburg Dodge will create, by posting and sharing the pages in Facebook, Google Plus, Twitter, and also blogs and press releases. As a result, Spartanburg Dodge should gain immediate sales through the various social media streams, followed by long-term sales created by the pages being indexed and appearing in search results, whenever new and used vehicles are searched for in Google, Yahoo!, Bing, and other search engines.
Spartanburg Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-Ram has become a staple in the Spartanburg region, selling large amounts of all four brands they carry, in addition to a large selection of pre-owned and pre-owned certified cars and trucks. Their motto, Whatever it Takes, has become a common saying in the Spartanburg region.
“We are excited to have a dealership join our family of auto dealers who is so well respected in their region. Their staff is top-notch, and are very friendly and professional to work with. We look forward to helping them gain market-share and dominate in their region”, according to Drew Bourke, CEO of Avidea LLC.
About VASS Automotive Customer Testimonial Pages:
VASS Automotive Customer Testimonial Pages was developed by Avidea LLC’s CEO, Drew Bourke in 2012. It officially launched in June of 2013, following a three-month beta period. VASS helps automotive dealers dominate social media streams and localized web searches by building a new, independently-hosted customer testimonial web page every time a participating VASS dealer sells a new or pre-owned vehicle. Each VASS customer testimonial page is a website in and of itself, featuring all facets of the dealership, along with the photo and testimonial of every customer who buys a vehicle from them. Each customer testimonial web page includes:
• SEO-maximized text
• Videos of featured cars and trucks, personal greetings
• Photos of inventory, the facility, staff, etc.
• Interactive Google map
• New car sales & leasing specials
• Service coupons and discounts
• Hyperlinks and email addresses to all departments of the dealership
• Contact forms
• and, much more.
Because VASS Customer Pages are hosted independently of each dealer's’ website, they can help increase SEO and Google PageRank by having hundreds, eventually thousands of pages linking to the dealer’s primary website.
New and used auto dealers interested in increasing sales through the use of social media, off-page SEO and online publicity may contact VASS Customer Pages by email at vassdp(at)gmail(dot)com, or by visiting their website at http://www.VassDP.com.
