San Diego Comic-Con International vs. Salt Lake Comic Con Jul 26, 2014 03:16PM

SALT LAKE CITY, July 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- On Friday, July 25, 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con (http://saltlakecomiccon.com/) organizers received a cease and desist order from San Diego Comic-Con International asserting that Salt Lake Comic Con cannot use the term "Comic Con" for any event, logo, trademark or website moving forward, further claiming ownership of all variations of the generic term "Comic Con."

San Diego Comic-Con International is asserting intellectual property infringement for use of the name "Comic Con", challenging hundreds of comic conventions around the country and the world already using the words comic con for their show.

To view a copy of the cease and desist order or to join Salt Lake Comic Con's effort to protect Comic Con, click here.

Dan Farr Productions produces the Salt Lake Comic Con events.  The next Salt Lake Comic Con is scheduled for September 4-6, 2014 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.

"This cease and desist order is baseless and has been attempted before by this organization and has failed. Our primary concern is our fans and making sure we provide them with an event that allows them to meet, great and get up close and personal with their favorite celebrities and pop culture icons," said Dan Farr, Salt Lake Comic Con Founder and Show Producer.  "We're puzzled why Salt Lake Comic Con was apparently singled out amongst the hundreds of Comic Cons around the country and the world. We intend to vigorously defend ourselves from this frivolous action."

In one year, Salt Lake Comic Con has achieved record setting success.  The first Salt Lake Comic Con surpassed more than 72,000 fans.  In its second event called Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience (FanX) attendance exceeded more than 100,000 people making it the third largest Comic Con in the country. For Salt Lake Comic Con 2014 show organizers anticipate an even larger outpouring of fan support with expectations of more than 120,000 fans.

"San Diego Comic-Con International is threatening not only us, but all the other Comic Cons by trying to prohibit them from using the term for their events," said Bryan Brandenburg, Salt Lake Comic Con Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer.  "San Diego Comic-Con attempted to trademark 'Comic Con' in 1995 and the application failed. Furthermore, precedence for the mark 'Comic Con' was set when Denver Comic Con received a trademark for their convention on November 26, 2013. Nobody owns the words 'Comic Con' (short for comic convention) and the United States Patent and Trademark Office has already ruled on this."

7 Speed Reading Developer Acknowledges the Power Behind Reading Books, eReflect Announces Jul 26, 2014 03:00PM

New York City, NY (PRWEB) July 27, 2014

7 Speed Reading™ creator eReflect has released a new blog post on what "the art of reading" truly entails. In this blog post, eReflect emphasizes that the best approach to reading consists of the 4 Rs: Read, Retain, Relate, Read. By implementing this reading strategy, people will be able to get the most out of each piece of content they read.

eReflect points out that unless reading takes place in a distraction-free environment, even this method will be less successful. Reading requires a lot of focus and the more concentrated the reader is, the more they will get out of the book they are reading.

Once the first step of finding a quiet place to READ is accomplished, the RETAIN step must be practiced. As eReflect explains, during this stage the reader is called upon to process what's being read in a way that allows them to pass that information on to another person. By doing the mental processing that allows a person to explain essential information to someone else, the reader is forming the neural connections that will ensure that this information is effectively stored in their brain.

The RELATE stage is the one that requires a lot of cognitive processing and effort on behalf of the reader. While retaining involves the processing of new facts, the relate stage involves making sure that knowledge is integrated with previously-stored information in the person's mind. Many people don't go as far as this third step, they simply process and accumulate knowledge. Advanced readers, however, seek to relate that knowledge to their existing facts, and form new systems and connections that further boost their knowledge.

This third stage is important because it helps people develop their critical and creative skills. They will see how a new fact relates to, contradicts, or complements existing ones. It's a continuous process of knowledge acquisition and adjustment.

The fourth step is identical to the first, but it's repeated for a reason. In this case, READ means never ceasing to accumulate new knowledge through reading, as this is the key to success in many areas of life. eReflect offers learners several speed reading techniques through the 7 Speed Reading™ software to help them in reading faster so that they can get through more books and accumulate the most information.

Sunset Reputation Announces Lexington Will Be a Part of Reputation Management Service Expansion Jul 26, 2014 03:00PM

(PRWEB) July 26, 2014

Sunset Reputation has announced that Lexington will be a part of the company's most recent reputation management service expansion. According to the company, there has been a significant increase in the demand for the services offered by Sunset Reputation in the Lexington area.

The company is quick to note that as Internet usage continues to soar, so too will the need for reputation management services also rise.

This is true for businesses as well, as customers heavily rely on the information that they find about a business online. Any negativity can result in a decreased profitability.

"There are a number of aspects of our lives that the Internet has truly enriched, but our increased reliance on it for information can sometimes be quite troublesome," said Brandon Hopkins of Sunset Reputation. "It is not as if every piece of information that is put online is thoroughly checked for accuracy, yet people still look at it in this way. The result is that many people and businesses face challenges caused by the presence of inaccurate and misleading information."

Through the use of their painstakingly developed and tested reputation management services, Sunset Reputation has been able to generate impressive results for their clients. The company makes use of a number of different strategies that help to restore positivity to the reputations of the clients they serve.

Clients that have employed the services of Sunset Reputation have benefited significantly. Many individual clients report that they were again able to find meaningful employment that paid them according to their education and experience. Businesses frequently see a return of their profitability and are no longer concerned with how their online reputation will impact their long-term viability.

"We are very pleased that we have been able to consistently achieve very positive results for our clients," said Hopkins. "We are looking forward to helping many new clients in the Lexington area as well."

Announcement: GuitarControl.com Releases "Acoustic Blues Guitar Lick with Double Stops - Blues Guitar Lesson on Double Stops Lick" Jul 26, 2014 02:45PM

(PRWEB) July 26, 2014

Jon starts off this cool acoustic blues guitar lesson by performing the lick so you can hear what it should sound like at tempo. This lick is based in the minor pentatonic scale and uses the techniques of hybrid picking and double stops and is in the key of G. MacLennan demonstrates the lick as follows: 8th fret of the 2nd string with first finger and 9th fret of the 3rd string with 2nd finger and he picks both strings simultaneously using hybrid picking and bends the 3rd string up one half step. Jon picks this double stop twice as 1/8th notes before moving down two frets and repeats the same double stop. Next Jon bars his 3rd finger across the 5th fret of the 2nd and 3rd strings with his 3rd finger and then bars at the 3rd fret with first finger and follows that with doing a hammer-on to the 4th fret of the 3rd string with 2nd finger and then the 5th fret of the 4th string with 3rd finger and then does a pull-off to the 3rd fret and then to the 5th fret of the 5th string with 3rd finger and then another pull-off to the 3rd fret and finally ends by sliding back up to the 5th fret. Guitar TAB's are available for this acoustic blues guitar lesson at GuitarControl.com.
Hybrid Picking is a technique where the guitarist uses a flat pick with the thumb and first finger and finger picks with the remaining fingers. Double Stops is the technique of playing two strings at the same time, usually done using the hybrid picking technique.
