Doral Financial Corporation: Two Days of Trial and Hacienda Has Put Forth No Evidence Sep 19, 2014 07:53PM

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Sept. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Following today's trial in the Doral Financial Corporation v. Hacienda court case, Doral Legal Counsel Matthew D. McGill issued the following statement:

"For four months, Doral has been waiting for Hacienda to explain its attempt to nullify its $230 million debt to Doral.  Hacienda claimed that Doral obtained its 2012 tax agreement through a fraud, but after two days of trial, including testimony from Secretary Melba Acosta Febo herself, Hacienda has come forward with no evidence supporting that outrageous accusation.  When this case is over, the people of Puerto Rico will have to ask whether they were well served by their government's unfounded attack on one of Puerto Rico's few remaining banks."

"Por los pasados cuatro meses, Doral ha estado en espera que Hacienda provea una explicacion acerca de su intento de anular su deuda de $230 millones con Doral. Hacienda alego que Doral obtuvo su acuerdo del 2012 mediante fraude, pero luego de dos dias de juicio, incluyendo testimonio de la propia secretaria de Hacienda, Melba Acosta Febo, Hacienda no ha podido presentar evidencia que apoye esta acusacion atroz. Cuando este caso llegue a su fin, el pueblo de Puerto Rico tendra la oportunidad de evaluar si fueron bien servidos por este gobierno ante su ataque infundado en contra de uno de los pocos bancos restantes de Puerto Rico."

The Chocolate Oxygen Facial and 4 More Highly Unusual True Facial Treatments Sep 19, 2014 07:46PM

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based in the heart of Studio City, Le Jolie Medi Spa is widely acknowledged by beauty buffs for offering the best facial in Los Angeles, among other beauty and skin care solutions. Founded by expert esthetician Sharona Rafaeloff and the renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rafaeloff, Le Jolie Medi Spa provides a facial in Los Angeles that's based on classic techniques and modern innovation. Their treatments include microdermabrasion, IPL rejuvenation and, yes, caviar and chocolate oxygen facial treatments.

While the idea of a chocolate facial may seem tasty but odd, it's actually more common – and more logical – that you might think. Studies have found that the antioxidant epicatechin, found in cacao beans, might be able to reduce the signs of aging in the skin, while cocoa butter can serve as an effective moisturizer. If you still think the chocolate oxygen facial is an unusual beauty treatment, however, check out these odd facials that have been embraced by beauty conscious individuals around the globe

  • Gold Facials – You don't have to spend it to enjoy the value of gold – some beauty experts believe that the 24 carat gold foil facial from Le Jolie Medi Spa can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Wise Geek reports that lab tests have even found that gold facials can speed up the regeneration of skin cells, leading to brighter, healthier-looking skin.
  • Wine – You're probably familiar with the relaxing effect that wine provides when you drink it, but some beauty-minded people have argued that wine can have a salubrious effect on your skin as well as your mood. In fact, the use of wine and related seeds and pulp even has a name: vinotherapy.

At a spa in Jaipur, India, some have said that wine facials help them to relieve stress, anxiety and even headaches. In many case, the wine is mixed with a medium like aloe vera, and is said to keep skin supple and moisturized.

If the idea of chocolate and wine facial treatments has left you feeling a bit hungry, however, these might curb your appetite:

  • Vampire Facials – It sounds spooky, but celebrities like Kim Kardashian have touted the benefits of the vampire facial, which uses a person's own blood. A small sample is extracted and used to harvest plasma and use the natural plasma growth hormones to correct wrinkles and find lines in the patient's face.
  • Bird Dropping Facial –Believe it or not, at one high-end skin care salon in Manhattan, a bird poop facial allows spa-goers to undergo a facial made from nightingale guano for $180. In an ABC News article, Shizuka Bernstein of the Shizuka New York skin care salon says that the seeds nightingales feast on include an enzyme that can have very positive effects on one's skin. Bernstein claims it's a Japanese beauty secret that can be remarkably effective at rejuvenating skin – though it's understandable if you opt to simply take her word for it.

There's an incredible array of wild, innovative and just plain odd beauty secrets and facial treatments to choose from today, so don't hesitate to contact Le Jolie Medi Spa for information about the best facial in Los Angeles, and to learn about the full run of beauty treatments they offer. For further information about the spa, including packages and pricing, visit lejoliespa.com or call (818) 501-1114 today to book your appointment.

4 Steps to Seeing Colorful Fall Foliage in SoCal Sep 19, 2014 07:45PM

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It's often said that Southern California weather is perfect all year long, but the one caveat expressed by many is that Southern Californians don't get to experience the autumn colors found on the East Coast and throughout the Midwest. Yet, the reality is that this simply isn't true. "I'm blown away that people say there's no fall color in California," said John Poimiroo, writer of the blog California Fall Color in an interview with KCET. While it's true that the Mediterranean climate of the California coast makes autumn colors rare, in a simple day trip or even a full weekend, you can experience brilliant orange, rich red and dazzling yellow-colored trees without ever leaving the Golden State. To make the most of the trip, travel with a group of friends or family by renting an 8, 12 or even 15 passenger van rental from State Van.

To simplify your trip as much as possible, here's a breakdown of the most efficient fall-foliage excursion route:

  1. Pick your Transportation – Starting in Los Angeles, you can rent a van from the LAX-adjacent State Van Rental facility. If you're traveling with a large group, a Chevy Express 12 passenger van rental might be the optimal choice. With Solar-Ray® tinted glass and a removable bench seat, you and your friends can enjoy a comfortable, spacious ride, while anti-lock brakes and automatic transmission ensure smooth and safe driving through any wooded mountain pass. Smaller groups might opt for an 8 passenger van rental or even a 7 passenger conversion van, featuring leather seats and a full media and entertainment center – perfect for those embarking on a lengthier autumn excursion.
  2. Once you've found the perfect van for your group, believe it or not a short jaunt of about 15 miles east on the I-5 Freeway is all it takes to see some vibrant fall colors at Whittier Narrows Recreational Facility. There – where the Rio Hondo and San Gabriel Rivers diverge – you'll find a diverse ecosystem that includes a number of deciduous trees showing off colorful fall foliage.  
  3. From Whittier, you'll want to head a about another 70 miles east to beautiful Lake Arrowhead. Cottonwood trees showcase golden leaves this time of year, and the mountain air and bright blue sky serves to make the colors pop. Of course this is still just a warm-up compared to…
  4. Big Bear Lake. Only 25 miles away, you'll find yourself far from the bustle of the city, and surrounded by autumn-hued maples and aspens as well as cottonwoods, making for fall beauty that actually rivals much of what you'll find in the Midwest or East coast.

Once your tour through Southern California's fall beauty in a State Van rental, you may very well find yourself eager to explore more the foliage at further flung locales like June Lake or Yosemite for even more crisp autumn air and stunning vistas. If you do, don't hesitate to get in touch with State Van Rental to reserve your van and prepare for a one-of-a-kind seasonal journey. For further information, please contact the agency by dialing 888-315-6888 toll free. You can also make a reservation online at www.statevan.com.

5 Ways Weight Loss Surgery Improves Health Sep 19, 2014 07:45PM

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The medical experts at Beverly Hills Physicians understand that, to benefit from a truly well-balanced lifestyle, an individual needs to address both their physical appearance and their health and wellness. That's why bariatric weight loss procedures have always been such a perfect match for the the outstanding medical team at BHP. While many people view surgical weight loss as an aesthetic treatment, the positive impact it can have on a person's life extends much further than its ability to boost one's self-confidence through a dramatically improved appearance. Below, you'll find 5 proven health benefits of bariatric surgery:

  1. Reduced Risk of Diabetes – WebMD states that a growing number of studies are showing that weight loss surgery can be more successful at treating diabetes than drugs and lifestyle changes. In fact, one recent study found that type 2 diabetes can stay in remission for as long as 15 years after weight-loss surgery.  
  2. Brain Boost – We all know that weight loss can lead to a beautiful body, but new research shows that it can maintain a beautiful mind as well. Time reports that obesity can harm most organs in the body – including the brain. In scientific studies, patients who get rid of excess fat through bariatric surgery actually improved brain function, reversing the negative effects of obesity.
  3. A Sharper Memory – For many, the improvement to brain power provided by weight loss continues far into old age. In fact, treating obesity through weight loss surgery can actually decrease one's risk of suffering from Alzheimer's by 35%.
  4. Reduced Risk of Cancer in Women – A study by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine in the UK recently found that, for every 5 kg/m2 decrease in BMI (Body Mass Index), womb cancer risk could be decreased by as much as 62%. The study also found that BMI reduction was also related to decreases in ovarian and breast cancer.
  5. A Positive Outlook – No matter how attractive you look on the outside, you'll never feel complete without a positive, optimistic perspective. However, Everyday Health reports that obese people are 25% more likely to experience depression than those who are not overweight. Excess weight can also result in chronic joint pain and hypertension – both of which are also linked to depression.

As an expert medical team that is dedicated to total body care, Beverly Hills Physicians is the ideal option for many people seeking relief from obesity and related health issues through bariatric weight loss surgery. If you're interested in learning more about the many life-changing weight loss procedures offered by the acclaimed specialists at Beverly Hills Physicians, please visit http://www.beverlyhillsphysicians.com/services-weight-loss-bariatric/.
