LI Trends Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Posted on October 29, 2013 at 10:40 AM

Breast Cancer Awareness month may be coming to an end, but your health is important year round.

 

Women recognize the importance of living a healthy lifestyle, which includes conducting self-exams to detect for breast cancer. Breast self-exams are vital to discovering abnormalities, including lumps or tenderness, in the breasts. Self-examination increases the chances of early detection of breast cancer.

 

Long Island Trends has put together an article made to inform women of early detection, and the signs to look for when conducting a proper breast exam.

Arrow Security and The Cotocon Group team up to Green up, yet another Long Island building.

Posted on October 28, 2013 at 1:55 PM

When AJ Caro CEO of Arrow Security decided to take on the challenge of creating a new building on what once was an old lumber yard, he knew he wanted to make the building as eco-friendly and energy efficient as possible, by doing this he knew not only would he be putting Arrow Security at the forefront of a new “Green Movement” but would also be saving money for the company, which would in turn give back to the community.


 

AJ Caro and the Arrow Security called Jimmy Carchietta of “The Cotocon Group”. After explaining his vision, Jimmy and his team came down and worked to transform this building into a 100% Green super high powered office. What makes this office so unique is the fact that nothing was overlooked, if it could be made green friendly or energy efficient, it was.


 

Some of the things The Cotocon group did, starting from the outside was to start with the cars. Arrow Security recently replaced their entire fleet of security vehicles to more eco-friendly models. To honor this, Jimmy and the team put in priority parking for the entire Arrow Security vehicle fleet, as well as for all employees driving low emitting or fuel efficient vehicles. Now that’s a job perk! Also outside landscapers were hired to plant trees and plants to help improve the environment, and replace what was once lost.


 

The building was designed to use mostly natural lighting by placing large 70 x 70 inch windows around the entire building. The glass used for the windows is known as “Low E” glass. This glass product was chosen because it improves building envelope, and saves against thermal heat loss and gain.


 

Why use natural light your thinking? Not only is natural light good for conserving energy but also it is also good for its occupants. Daylight is also known to be better for the eyes, and also improves moral and mood. Not only is electrical lighting responsible for a significant amount of the electrical load on a commercial building, but it can also cause excessive cooling loads. Utility costs for a building can be decreased when using natural light. Solar panels also line the roof of the building creating an onsite removal energy system.


 

Inside the building the list goes on, no stone goes unturned. Literally everything that could be done to create this green office powerhouse has been done. Lets starting with the floors, the flooring throughout the building is made with non-contaminant organic compounds. This is also referred to as “Non- VOC” flooring. They are also hypoallergenic.


 

Installed is a state of the art, high efficiency HVAC system. Here is where things get “Cool”. This new system has programmable controls enabling the building to pre-program according to day/night, holidays and weekends. This will save hundreds of thousands of dollars in heating and cooling costs. The air quality in the building has surpassed building requirements.


 

The walls of the building were constructed with spray foam insulation, to keep the building naturally warmer in winter, and cooler in summer. A high efficiency hot water heater was installed, as well as water conserving fixtures throughout the building. Wait, that’s not all, Jimmy and the Cotocon Team did not stop here. The bathrooms were the last step. How to do make a toilet “Green”? not literally. Well you install dual flushing toilet bowls. These are interactive toilets designed to conserve water. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that by the year 2013, an estimated 36 states will experience water shortages as a result of increased water usage and inefficient water management from aging regional infrastructures. Using less water to flush liquid waste makes sense, but in the United States there may be cultural biases that make accepting a more hands-on approach to personal waste harder to accept [source: Safe Plumbing].


 

It should also be noted that all the materials used in the Greening of the Arrow Security building were all regional materials, and were purchased within a 500-mile radius. Arrow Security and The Cotocon Group’s vision was not only be make a more energy efficient facility, but to also to stay local, by doing this they are improving the community and bringing business back to the East Coast.

The Tru Salon Hosts Seminar about Living a Grudge Free Life!

Posted on October 25, 2013 at 4:15 PM

What could be better then being in one of Long Island's premier Salons sipping coffee, chatting with friends and family and making new ones, getting beauty tips, and hair style tips? I can't think of much else!


This was the scene at The Tru Salon in Saint James this past Tuesday. The owners, Cheryl and Brian Duignan were kind enough to open their salon and services for Tikkun Long Island Healing Week. 


The morning started with coffee and pastries in the lounge area of the salon. Friends and Professionals in all career fields joined together and shared experiences, stories, and lots of laughs. 


Donna Drake and I spoke to guests about the power of healing and living a grudge free life and letting go of stress. After everyone shared advice and stories, we were all guided to stylist area. Matthew Ambrosio of Ambros Style chose a guest to makeover. He answered everyones beauty questions and gave makeup tips useful for women of all ages. 


Our morning ended with Brian Duignan, professional / celebrity stylist and Owner of the Tru Salon enhacing Matthews work by giving our makeover guest a new trendy hair cut and style. Brian spoke with guests about  the Tru Salon's product line called "Tru the Product" and what each product does to accomplish hair perfection both in and out of the salon. 


Finally after our informative discussion and fun demonstatrions, guests were free to mingle and network with one another. Brittany, Donna, and Myseld wrapped up with some inspiring advice, while The Tru Salon handed out goodie bags with some of the "Tru the Product" samples and coupons!


Although the air outside the salon was cool and brisk, Inside was filled with warmth and kindness in the presence of great friends and collegues. Everyone at Bluchip Marketing would like to Thank the Tru Salon, Matthew Ambrosio, LI Weddings.com, and all of our friends for attending and making this morning so special.




 

Rob Pannell of Wreckless Lacrosse Takes Inside Lacrosse to his Hometown!

Posted on October 25, 2013 at 4:05 PM

 

Rob Pannell's had quite a busy year so far. Returning to Cornell for the spring semester after having to sit out in the fall recovering from a foot injury and traveling to places like Uganda, Europe and Hawaii, he led the Big Red to the Final Four, set the NCAA's all-time points record and won both the Tewaaraton Trophy and MLL Rookie of the Year honors.

He signed endorsement deals with Brine, Wreckless and Wheaties. Most recently, he moved into the Big Apple, specifically the Murray Hill neighborhood of New York City. It's about a 45-minute drive, and a world away, from his hometown of Smithtown, N.Y., in Suffolk County, Long Island. He said he was never much of a city guy and never saw himself moving there, but he's loved every minute of it since he made the transition this fall.

Vasilis of "VASMAZ TENNIS" Teaches us tips and tricks on his Blog

Posted on October 16, 2013 at 2:40 PM

Vasilis teaches up and coming players tips and tricks on the court. In this video he shows the importance of returning your focus on the ball.

 

The return can easily be considered to be one of the two most important shots in tennis. When your opponent serves, you want to hit a return that will allow you in the best-case scenario to take control over the point or in the worst-case scenario remain in the point and give yourself a chance to win it.
