Vote for Rett Syndrome

http://www.refresheverything.com/search/?q=rett

Support the Charity Clint Black and Julia Roberts Support

Votes are urgently needed to help the International Rett Syndrome Foundation secure the lead in the Pepsi Refresh Challenge so the four-star charity can win $250,000 for research at leading universities. Clint Black, Julia Roberts and Congressman Steny Hoyer (D-MD) all have personal connections to Rett Syndrome that robs young girls of their speech and hand use, and all have given their time to help accelerate treatments and a cure. Clint Black has made contact with a foundation that will likely match the $250,000.  The voting for September has just begun and every vote counts. The contests are one month in length. Your vote is needed in a race to help this devastating autism spectrum disorder be reversed.

There are three ways to vote, and each day you can vote all three ways:

1. Send Text Vote to Pepsi (73774) – Type 100842 in the message field to vote

2. Use the Facebook app.

3. Vote directly from the Pepsi site: http://www.refresheverything.com/rettresearchtoreality

Help IRSF win $250K for crucial funding for Rett syndrome research in support of the Research to Reality Campaign chaired by Clint Black, who lost his niece to this disorder. Rett syndrome, a neuro-developmental disorder primarily affecting girls, causes problems in the brain responsible for cognitive, sensory, emotional, motor & autonomic function. There are thousands of undiagnosed girls and women world-wide.

About International Rett Syndrome Foundation
IRSF is an U.S. organization whose mission is to fund research for treatments and a cure for Rett syndrome while enhancing the overall quality of life for those living with Rett syndrome by providing information, programs and services.  http://www.rettsyndrome.org

Would you like to provide better in-home monitoring of a Loved One?

What if you could unobtrusively monitor the in-home activity of your loved ones from anywhere? What if you check-on the inside temperature, doors locked-unlock status and bed/chair activity ? How about saving a trip to the doctor to get blood pressure, weight, glucometer, pulse, oxygen, etc checked, because they can now be sent from the home.

Coming Soon….Audio Video in Bryan-College Station will allow caregivers to log into a secured website from any remote location and check these systems. As well you will be able to set up a wide variety of automatic alerts. For example, you might want to receive an email if medications were not accessed and a phone call if there is a significant weight loss in a short period of time. Alerts will be easy to set-up and can be customized to reflect ANYTHING you need to know. Of course, we’ll be there to help you from implementation to complete set up and to ensure success!

Coming Soon to Audio Video-BCS

Redbox look out. Netflix is now Streaming Video

netflix

Netflix subscribers now have access to a large selection of “streaming” concerts,movies and shows.

Internet ready Blu-ray players like the Sony BDPS570 & current video game systems can connect directly to your Netflix account and stream unlimited video content to your home.

Netflix also just announced that starting this September Lionsgate and Paramount movies will be added to their streaming lineup.

Warning, Mayday-Mayday. Analog HD Video is Dead

Good BYE Blu-ray Component Video on Jan. 1, 2011

If you have a home theater, you may find that in January of next year you will no longer have the ability to display Blu-ray high-definition video.

When high definition TV (HDTV) became popular a few short years ago, content providers were justifiably nervous about of the near-perfect high-definition copies that were now possible.  They addressed these fears by creating a new type of cable and connector called High Definition Multimedia Interface, or “HDMI” for short.  Digital audio and video are delivered on this single-wire solution, as well as Digital Rights Management (“DRM” = copy protection). DRM is studios protection against piracy. HDMI has now become the standard in home theater cabling types.

This phase-out of all other high definition capable interconnects is called Analog Sunset. Additional (and more severe) restrictions are going to follow shortly thereafter, but to continue watching your blu-ray content, you will possibly be required to upgrade your connections before January 1, 2011 once Analog Sunset arrives.

Any Blu-ray disc players made after 12-31-10 will not output HD content on component jacks.

Any Blu-ray discs made after (some even before) can contain code that prevents them from outputting HS on component jacks.

If your home theater or video system was designed before 2010 there is a good chance that the connections between the TV and Blu-ray player need updating, but please understand this is part of the evolution of better content not the fault of your AV installation company.

Google Enters the TV Content Business

Google TV LOGO

Because of the incredible growth of the Android mobile operating system, Google unveiled the new Google TV platform at the Google I/O Conference in San Francisco. The new device is promising to merge the world of online content from portals like YouTube, Netflix and Hulu with what you already receive from cable or satellite services, and allows you to leverage the power of Google Search when looking for programming to watch.

Built on Google’s successful Android mobile operating system for smartphones and tablet/netbook computers, Google TV leverages technology from Adobe, Intel and Google’s Chrome Browser to deliver engaging experiences to your living room. Sony has signed on with Google to make the first TVs with integrated Google TV technology, and Logitech will manufacture a set-top device to bring Google TV to displays without the technology built-in. Both devices will contain Intel Atom chips for processing power.
