cov19 Boca Raton None Essential Business Closed

Posted on March 24, 2020 at 1:55 PM Comments comments (643)

Effective 12:01am Wednesday, March 25, 2020, until further notice, the City of Boca Raton is directing the closures of all nonessential retail and commercial establishments. 

 

In the last week, both Miami-Dade and Broward counties ordered restrictions on nonessential business. The City recognizes the COVID-19 public health emergency is not limited to one county or municipality.

 

The City has issued this emergency order to save lives and prevent the long-term devastating impacts on our residents, businesses and visitors.

Do your part. Slow the spread. Stay home.

Posted on March 23, 2020 at 6:00 PM Comments comments (893)

To continue to serve you during these times, we would like to offer curbside delivery of our products 





Holistic Wellness -A Word from Our Formulators

Posted on March 23, 2020 at 5:50 PM Comments comments (400)

 

To continue to serve you during these times, we would like you to know we won't be shutting down our lab as the products we sell which now includes liquid hand and bath soaps are qualified as life sustaining. As far as we know, distributors such as yourself, fall into this category as well.

 

We have adopted stringent disinfecting procedures for all arriving boxes, contents of every box, product handling and filling which now includes disinfecting all filled bottles and jars, packing materials and boxes before products are shipped.

 

According to the New England Journal of Medicine COVID19's stability is as follows:

3 HOURS IN AIR

4 HOURS ON COPPER SURFACES

24 HOURS ON CARDBOARD

2-3 DAYS ON PLASTIC AND STAINLESS STEEL.

 

With that in mind, since we don't know if the virus has been exposed to boxes once they leave our lab, we strongly encourage you to handle the boxes with gloves, wear a mask and allow the boxes to remain unopened for a period of a minimum of 4 days to be safe. Basically the same attitude and precautions as the health professionals are stating which is to assume you and everyone else has the virus and protect yourself and others accordingly. We also strongly encourage to pass this info along to your clients.

 

Stay well and good luck through these trying times.

COV19 SALON PROTOCOL

Posted on March 23, 2020 at 5:30 PM Comments comments (436)

Corona virus Temporarily client protocol 

 

In efforts to continue open our doors as long this virus outbreak allow it , we are adapting a few steps to reduce the exposure .

 

“social distancing.”

The idea here is that now that this virus is out in the community and we have no medical way to prevent its spread, it’s up to us to keep far enough away from other people that we decrease the odds that we’ll get sick.And remember, because many people can be contagious despite having no or mild symptoms, “social distancing” doesn’t just mean avoiding people who cough—it means staying a safe distance away from other people.

 

CDC recommended :6 feet distant

 

As a temporarily measures :

 

Please consider rescheduling if:

 

-feel sick with in 2 weeks

-traveled yourself or any relative had traveled within 2 weeks .

 

-We love kids but please leave them home .

- Seriously consider it if you have any pre existing conditions .

WHAT TO EXPECT 

-please bring hand sanitizer , we are doing our best but it’s very hard to get it ,our supply it’s getting low .

 

- bring older clothes just in case our disposable capes are generic fit .

 

-Expect a call from us

 

- Before arriving to your appointment Call or text , we will be preparing the space to have your service .

 

-please wait in your car till we respond we are ready to star service .

 

-as soon you coming please wash your hands .

 

- highly suggest while you are processing , politely to wait in your car to avoid gathering in a closed space .We will try to reduce crow as posible.

 

-let us know any other suggestions to be consider

 

Thanks



 

 

ORGANIC COLOR SYSTEM PERM

Posted on August 18, 2014 at 6:10 PM Comments comments (551)

Organic Curl Systems is a revolutionary product, which is free from ammonia and thioglycolates. Enriched with plant amino acids, it works around the natural pH level of the hair, which is left undamaged by the process. The key trend in today’s perms is soft curls, full of volume and movement which is exactly what Organic Curl Systems accomplishes. It is a revolutionary perming, relaxing, and straightening product which contains Cysteamin HCL, an ingredient far gentler than chemical based perms. The neutraliser system contains plant amino acids, which soothe and condition the scalp. The hair is left with a natural feel and shine.

 

Organic Curl Systems works between pH 4.5 and 6.5, depending on how much activator is added and leaves the hair at its natural pH level, so it is undamaged by the perming process. Organic Curl Systems is suitable for all hair types, even damaged hair.

 

http://www.organiccolorsystems.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/organic-curl-systems-perm-full-line.jpg

The neutralizer is rich in wheat and soy protein, which are natural hair conditioners and moisturizers. This  increases protein levels and strengthens the hair.

 

  • No Ammonia
  • No Thioglycolates
  • Certified Organic Extracts
  • Superb Curl Retention
  • Natural Healthy Bounce
  • Can Relax & Straighten Too

Florida website dedicated to fighting CyberCrime and supporting CyberSafety

Posted on April 21, 2009 at 10:24 AM Comments comments (512)

http://safeflorida.net/

Welcome to SafeFlorida.net,

 a Florida website dedicated to fighting CyberCrime and supporting CyberSafety. In today's world, internet child predators, child pornographers and other cyber criminals are exploiting our children and engaging in online solicitation. My top priority is protecting Floridians from CyberCrime and my Child Predator CyberCrime Unit (CPCU) is working to carry out that mission, arresting online predators and providing services to victims of child pornography.

According to the Federal Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, one in seven children between the ages of ten and 17 have been sexually solicited online. Additionally, Florida ranks fourth in the nation in the volume of child pornography. Internet predators are a serious threat to the safety of our citizens, particularly our youth. We must do everything possible to protect our children from these predators.

Computer-facilitated crimes are not limited to child pornography or sexual solicitation. In 2007, Florida ranked fifth in the nation for identity theft with more than 19,000 victims. Today's tech-savvy criminals are using the internet and other computer resources to gain access to Floridians' most private information.

With an ever growing population of senior citizens in our state, extra caution must be taken to protect these Floridians who fall victim to many types of exploitation including internet-based fraud. We must remain vigilant in protecting our seniors and providing them with useful information so they are better able to protect themselves.

Whether we are protecting our children from internet predators, shielding individuals from identity theft or keeping our senior citizens safe from those who target them for fraud, your Attorney General's Office will remain diligent in our fight against cybercrime.

 

 

Message from the Office of the Attorney General

Parents and Guardians,

The safety of Florida?s citizens, especially our most vulnerable, is a top

priority of the Office of the Attorney General. It is for this purpose that

we are presenting a new tool that deals with the safety of our children.

SAFE STEPS is designed with parents in mind as they pursue their primary

responsibility of protecting the youngest members of their family.

Over the past year, we went into elementary schools throughout the state

to train children - as well as their parents - on child abduction prevention

strategies. They were introduced to the concept of a ?bad stranger? based

on a person?s actions instead of their appearance.

An important area where parents must be involved with their children

is the use of the Internet. It is not uncommon for young children to fall

prey to Internet predators who have the influence and the ability to lure

children into situations and circumstances that are harmful. News reports

have detailed instances where a child has been lured out of their home,

across state lines, and even across international borders.

SAFE STEPS can assist in minimizing the risks so that families will not

suffer a similar fate. This publication contains valuable information and

resources that may be of assistance to you and your children. We hope

you find this useful.

ONLINE GUIDE FOR PARENTS

 

http://www.safestepsfla.net/newsroom/ParentsGuide.pdf

While children need a certain amount of privacy, they also need parental

involvement and supervision in their daily lives. The same general parenting skills

that apply to the ?real world? also apply online. By taking responsibility for your

children?s online computer use, you can greatly minimize potential risks of being

online.

THE MAYAN PROPHECIES

Posted on April 17, 2009 at 11:45 PM Comments comments (953)

Known as Time's Special Witness, 7th century Mayan prophet Pacal Votan left a universal message for future generations of an evolving Earth.


Proclaiming,

"If Humanity Wishes To Save Itself From Biospheric Destruction It Must Return To Living in Natural Time,"

he foretold of our accelerated technological society, and the resulting damage of our collective divergence from Natural Law in exchange for materialist values.

The Celestine Prophecy http://www.celestinevision.com/

Global Prayer ProjectPrayer, Meditation & Discussion with James & Salle Redfield

http://www.celestinevision.com/telegatherings/conf092308.mp3



The Celestine Prophecy: An Adventure
by James Redfield
In the rain forests of Peru, an ancient manuscript has been discovered. Within its pages are 9 key insights into life itself -- insights each human being is predicted to grasp sequentially, one insight then another, as we move toward a completely spiritual culture on Earth.
THE CELESTINE PROPHECY tells a gripping story of adventure and discovery, but is also a guidebook that has the power to crystallize your perceptions of why you are where you are in life--and to direct your steps with a new energy and optimism as you head into tomorrow.
This adventure parable is one of modern publishing's greatest success stories. THE CELESTINE PROPHECY spent over 3 years on the New York Times best sellers list and appeared on lists around the world. It was the #1 international bestseller of 1996 (#2 in 1995); in 1995 and 1996, it was the #1 American book in the world.





When author and therapist James Redfield self-published his first novel in 1993, the immediate ground swell of enthusiasm from booksellers and readers made The Celestine Prophecy one of the most successful self-published books of all time.
Since 1994, when Warner Books published The Celestine Prophecy in hard cover, this adventure parable about a spiritual journey to Peru became one of modern publishing's greatest success stories. According to Publishing Trends, The Celestine Prophecy was the #1 international bestseller of 1996 (#2 in 1995).
In 1995 and 1996, it was the #1 American book in the world. This phenomenal novel spent over 3 years on the New York Times bestsellers list and appeared on lists around the world. In 1996, an eagerly awaited sequel,
The Tenth Insight: Holding The Vision, which also became an instant bestseller, joined The Celestine Prophecy. The two books spent a combined 74 weeks on the New York Times list, making James Redfield the best-selling hard cover author in the world in 1996, as cited in BP Report (January 1997).








James Redfield was 43 when he published The Celestine Prophecy, which chronicles Nine Insights into a greater spirituality. He has been keenly interested in human spirituality all of his life. Born on March 19, 1950, he grew up in a rural area near Birmingham, Alabama. From an early age, he was motivated by a need for clarity about spiritual matters. Brought up in a Methodist Church that was loving and community-oriented, he was nevertheless frustrated by a lack of answers to his questions about the true nature of spiritual experience. As a young man, he studied Eastern philosophies, including Taoism and Zen, while majoring in sociology at Auburn University. He later received a Master's degree in counseling and spent more than 15 years as a therapist to abused adolescents. During this time, he was drawn into the human potential movement and turned to it for theories about intuitions and psychic phenomena that would help his troubled clients. All along, Redfield was forming ideas that would eventually find their way into The Celestine Prophecy. In 1989, he quit his job as a therapist to write full-time, synthesizing his interest in interactive psychology, Eastern and Western philosophies, science, futurism, ecology, history, and mysticism.
Using an adventure parable approach that has been called "part Indiana Jones, part Scott Peck," The Celestine Prophecy created a model for spiritual perception and actualization that resonated with millions of people and focused on the mysterious coincidences that occur in each of our lives. Disdaining the spotlight himself, Redfield proclaimed in The Celestine Prophecy that each of us must intuit his own spiritual destiny.
As he writes in
The Celestine Vision, his non-fiction title published in 1997, "The actual writing of The Celestine Prophecy occurred from January 1989 through April 1991 and was characterized by a sort of trial-and-error process. Quite amazingly, as I remembered earlier experiences and wrote about them, lacing them into an adventure tale, striking coincidences would occur to emphasize the particular points I wanted to make. Books would show up mysteriously, or I would have timely encounters with the exact sort of individuals I was attempting to describe. Sometimes strangers would open up to me for no apparent reason and tell me about their spiritual experiences." Feeling "kind of stuck" at one point, Redfield went to the high-energy vortexes of Sedona, Arizona-an area that he and many others regard as a sacred place. As he recounts in an interview in Body, Mind, Spirit magazine: "I was sitting on a ridge near the Chapel Vortex and trying to work with the notes for the book. It was not coming easily. All of a sudden, a crow flew out of the canyon and right over my head and then flew back into the canyon. I continued to make notes. I was having some trouble getting the story to flow out. The crow came out of the canyon again and flew over me, then back into the canyon, so I went into the canyon, and when I sat down the book just came pouring out." The flow halted, however, when Redfield began sending The Celestine Prophecy to publishers in 1992. He did receive a few offers, but they did not seem right. "The companies all wanted to take between a year and 18 months to get the book out. I felt the book was timely and that we should get it out right away.
"All the coincidences stopped, and I felt dead in the water. I was interpreting the complete lack of publishing opportunity as a failure, a negative event, and that was the interpretation that had stopped the coincidences that I felt had been leading me forward. When I realized what was happening, I snapped to attention and made more revisions to the book, emphasizing this point."
Within days, Redfield heard about a publishing consultant from New York who had just moved into the area. Driven by intuition to seek him out, the two met, and the coincidences began again. Redfield quickly decided to self-publish the book. Just as he went to print, he met Salle Merrill, who brought with her a timely emphasis on the importance of giving. Now husband and wife, James and Salle filled the trunk of their car with copies of The Celestine Prophecy and drove to bookstores, meeting readers and talking about the book. "Of the first 3,000 copies we printed, we mailed or personally gave away 1,500 to small book shops and individuals in Alabama, Florida, North Carolina and Virginia." James recalls in The Celestine Vision, "Word of mouth recommendations took care of everything else." In six months, the book had over 100,000 copies in print, was in all 50 states, and was appearing in countries around the world. "It sold not because of any publicity I did, but because others began to give it to their friends everywhere."
After the self-published book was brought to the attention of Warner Books through a perceptive sales rep, Warner Books bought the rights and published the hard cover edition in March 1994. The book quickly climbed to the #1 position on the New York Times bestsellers list. It remained on that list for more than three years, joined by The Tenth Insight, which built upon the Nine Insights revealed in the first novel.
In October 1997, James Redfield was awarded the highly prestigious Medal of the Presidency of the Italian Senate at the XXIII Pio Manzu International Conference in Rimini, Italy. Pio Manzu is a nongovernmental arm of the United Nations headed up by Mikhail Gorbachev.
James has been widely involved in saving America's last wilderness areas. He has lobbied officially and met socially with Senators and Representatives to promote the Act to Save America's Forests, legislation written by the Washington-based environmental group, Save America's Forests. In early 1999, James Redfield became involved with the Global Renaissance Alliance (GRA), an organization founded by Marianne Williamson and Neale Donald Walsch. GRA's mission is to reawaken people more to the principles of non-violence and the need to infuse spiritual values into the political system.
In the spring of 2000, James joined Millard Fuller, founder of Habitat For Humanity, as the only two recipients of Humanitarian of the Year honors from their alma mater, Auburn University. Two months later, he was honored by the International New Thought Alliance with another Humanitarian of the Year award.
The Celestine series of adventure parables continued in 1999 with the publication of
The Secret of Shambhala: In Search of the Eleventh Insight (Warner Books). Set in modern day Tibet, Redfield continued the inspiring journey of The Celestine Prophecy and The Tenth Insight -- carrying readers to a new adventure in a sacred place where truths that can affect all of humanity await. In 2002, James joined author Michael Murphy and filmmaker Sylvia Timbers in a collaborative work entitled God and the Evolving Universe (J.P. Tarcher).
In March 2004, James Redfield was honored by the Wisdom Media Group with the World View Award for engaging the discussion on the nature of human existence and for his ongoing efforts and contributions to the bettering of humanity
