Ocean View Marketing has released Version 1.1 of the newly popular Slots Race app, an interactive slots game that gets players to join teams and compete head-to-head in 7-day-long races. Slots Race is a free app available on the Apple App Store and is compatible with the iPhone and iPad. After the runaway success of the app?s first race – East Coast vs. West Coast – Ocean View has released a new Obama vs. Romney showdown that boasts an added incentive: at the end of each race, Ocean View Marketing will donate to the winning team?s presidential campaign.
In the past few weeks, the presidential race has been heating up. Be it Libya, the economy, or the 47%, the two camps have battled over just about everything and Americans have rallied behind their candidate of choice. Lauded as the most competitive slots game in the app store, Slots Race has entered the battle with its newest Obama vs. Romney slots race, released on September 19th. To play, users pick their team, aligned with their favorite nominee, and then spin the slots in an attempt to earn chips that contribute to their team?s score. After 7 days, a winner is crowned, and Ocean View makes a monetary donation to the winning team?s candidate.
But how much does Ocean View donate? It depends on the number of players. For each tier of player counts, Ocean View ups the ante and adds another $ 50-$ 100 to its campaign donation (for full detail, visit http://slotsrace.com/president/). Players stand to win upwards of $ 2,000 each week for their chosen nominee, depending on how many like-minded players they get to join in on the game. In other words, over the 7 races taking place through November, players could raise up to $ 12,000 in total for their selected candidate?s campaign.
In the same vein of ?fun fundraising? events, parties, and social media campaigns, now politicos can support their party through play on the new Slots Race app. The Slots Race Obama vs. Romney race is a fun, playful way for voters to get in the presidential game and raise money for the next term?s Commander in Chief.

Verious Introduces Rich Mobile App Components for Branded Store Locators and Local Search Based on Citygrid APIs
San Carlos, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2012
Verious, the leader in connecting developers with mission-critical components and services for mobile app development, today announced the launch of rich mobile app components for local search and branded store locators. These software modules provide seamless in-app functionality connected to CityGrid?s APIs, providing comprehensive places data and enhanced content for more than 15 million local businesses and over 1 million local advertisers in the CityGrid ad network.
?We are very excited to launch these new and innovative API components that bring millions of hyper-local listings directly in line with the booming world of mobile apps,? said Anil Pereira, Founder and CEO of Verious. ?Now, brands and retailers can establish mobile affiliate networks through branded store locators and in-app coupons and independent developers can increase loyalty and mobile page views by tapping into the power of over 15 million listings via the CityGrid network.?
Launched today are a branded store locator component for large brands and retailers and a local search component for app publishers and independent app developers. These ?mini-apps? are purpose-built to be embedded into other mobile apps built on the iOS platform. The components are sophisticated software modules that handle all of the real-time calls, back-end content parsing, data presentation and caching necessary to integrate local listing feeds into a native mobile app.
How it Works
The store locator API component is location-aware and consists of a small promotional bar that displays a retailer-specific offer (e.g.,?50% off used games near you?). When a user ?taps? the bar, the component opens a full-screen branded store locator that mirrors a standalone app but is actually a rich component integrated directly into the host app. This mini-app highlights a retailer?s local store locations via branded pins on a local map (with the ability to change location); a list of all local stores, hours and direct call to action, including telephone numbers; and an integrated coupon that can be saved to a device?s photo gallery, providing coupon portability and persistent retailer branding. A sample store locator component built on the CityGrid Places API can be downloaded for free at http://www.Verious.com. Customized versions of the store locator can be developed for large brands and regional retailers who can use the component in their own apps or can create a mobile developer affiliate program, marketing the component through Verious? million-strong Mobile Developer Network.
The local search component is also location-aware and consists of a small local search bar that can be embedded into a mobile app. The component can be pre-packaged with a canned search (?Find the nearest gas station?) or can be displayed as a search toolbar with a ?search for? field displaying a user?s current location. In either case, the component opens a full-screen page within the host app that highlights local stores on a map (with the ability to change location); a list of all the stores, and a direct call to action, including store telephone numbers. The local search component has been built on the CityGrid Places API and can be downloaded for free at http://www.Verious.com .
Both the branded store locator component and local search component are currently available for the iOS platform. Versions for Android and other popular mobile platforms will be rolled out beginning in Q2 of this year.

Krav Maga Westchester Based Training Center Provides Self Defense to Briarcliff High School Senior Class Girls
Somers, Westchester County, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2012
Westchester?s Krav Maga New York (KMNY), a leading provider of self defense classes and tactical training, was recently contracted by Briarcliff Manor to provide a girls only self-defense training seminar for the High School senior class. During the seminar, and in an effort to better prepare our teens for college, the same Krav Maga New York Instructors who train law enforcement, including high profile entry and protective services units, introduced defensive concepts such as deterrence, avoidance, escape, justified use of force, pre-emptive action, striking, use of weapons, and escalation and de-escalation of force. At seminar conclusion, when instructors asked if participants learned any valuable skills, all the girls raised their hand.
The Krav Maga defensive system is renowned worldwide for its effectiveness against real life violent encounters. Unlike Mixed Martial Arts, boxing, wrestling, BJJ, or other forms of rule-based competition, Krav Maga was designed for real world attacks where rules simply do not apply and losing in not an option. One of the most sought after methods for self-defense, it teaches practitioners how best to neutralize attacks and escape unharmed. Krav Maga is characterized by simple, instinctive responses against realistic attacks, so defenses are easy to learn, easy to retain, and can be replicated even under stress. Krav Maga is a favorite among many law enforcement, military, and anti-terrorist training units who depend on it for its explosive nature and unrivaled effectiveness. Krav Maga’s total body fitness has also attracted countless Hollywood stars including Jennifer Lopez, Kristanna Loken, Brendan Fraser, Jennifer Garner and Ashton Kutcher.
Krav Maga New York?s bid for training services was solicited by Briarcliff Manor last spring when KMNY, as part of a free community outreach effort, agreed to attend a series of classes as a featured speaker and present on the subject of self defense. That one time presentation, conducted almost a year ago, inspired a YouTube video, secured this months training seminar, and produced and overwhelming response, including:
“Excellent. I loved him”
“I had no idea how important this was”
“I’m taking a self defense class”
?After Davide read off his statistics I was a bit embarrassed that I waited this long for a classroom presentation?
?Davide is a natural teacher??
“He reaches all abilities??
?They were glued to their seats??
?As one student put it, ?I hope he comes back,? and so do I?
When asked about the spread of Krav Maga in Westchester and Orange County, Davide G., KMNY?s highest ranking representative issued this statement; ?Sadly, in our highly educated society, the average person doesn?t know when self defend is justified, if pre-emptive action in self defense is a form of paranoia – or not ? or what the most dangerous part of a weapon is, any weapon, guns included, even though we constantly see them on TV and even though our kids play video games like Halo and Call of Duty. When eyeball to eyeball self defense is the subject, most not only know very little, but go out of their way to look away. Thanks to Briarcliff Manor’s educators, our community is safer. We?ve already been approached here in Westchester by Somers High School moms, so clearly that refreshing breeze our organization feels represents change, a change that we’ve been pursuing for years, one that perhaps, in terms of our martial arts community, we alone are responsible for.”
About Krav Maga New York:
Since 2004, Krav Maga New York, based in Westchester County, NY and Orange County, NY, has been featured on the Journal News, the North County News, the Record Review, LoHud.com, the Blotter, Hudson Valley Magazine, Healthy Frontiers, and News 12 Westchester. KMNY has trained thousands of civilians and hundreds of law enforcement officers including members of NYTOA, members of Westchester County Police Academy and Rockland County Police Academy, as well as special response teams and a high profile protective services unit. KMNY is recognized and highly regarded by leading Krav Maga licensing bodies nationwide.

Savtira has plans to unveil optimized platforms for specific devices such as: cable, IP-set-tops, smart TV?s, smartphones and tablets.
?We are thrilled to display our new showcase eStore,? said Timothy M. Roberts, President and CEO of Savtira. ?This eStore gives a taste of several of our eStores poised to launch in the next 30 days. Our eStore clients range from visionary early adopters to big business laggards.?
Savtira?s clients are able to get to market faster by leveraging the Savtira cloud-based infrastructure that has been in the planning stages for nearly a decade, and in place for more than a year. All Savtira eStores are customized and branded for the client. Savtira positions itself as a business channel partner, selling its client?s products ?behind the scenes.? Digital businesses have the option of engaging the full suite of Savtira?s offerings or integrating any component with their existing portfolio.
The Beta eStore is part of a phased approach to deliver the state-of-the-art technology that characterizes Savtira. The Beta phase includes a built-in Cloud Commerce Catalog. Savtira has contracted 20 million products from a wide variety of great brands. Every day, thousands more products are being loaded into the eStore. The Beta phase also includes ecommerce feature sets desired by retailers, such as social media connectedness, wish lists, cross-selling, predictive search, live chat support, and more.
The most exciting new technology showcased in the beta eStore is the 1Locker – http://www.1locker.com. The 1Locker is a digital locker that allows consumers to store up to 5 gigabytes of digital media in the cloud for free. Consumers using the 1Locker can store, download and stream digital content to any internet-connected device. The current version of the 1Locker is in the final stages of Beta.
The next phase of Savtira is even more remarkable. Currently under development and available this year, is application streaming from the cloud.

Consumers will be able to stream digital media from the cloud to any device with the ability to pause and resume later. Savtira uses Auto-Spin-Up technology which allows us to offer our entire catalog and on user request and spins up virtual machines on the fly in under 15 seconds.

Consumers are able to design their own playlists or buy packages allowing them to create their own radio stations. Savtira is taking IPTV to the next level: consumers will be able to turn their devices into a TV, viewing internet TV in real-time anywhere in the world. Existing IPTV providers only offer the ability to stream shows that have already been aired. Consumers will also have the ability to create playlists and favorites. These are yet more examples of features that no other B2B solutions provider offers to ecommerce retailers.
Here?s what Savtira?s cloud-based ecommerce solution offers:
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 24, 2011
The company has developed a technology to capture videos and photos of NFL Experience attendees, all at no cost to the consumer, which can be easily retrieved on the Moverati website. Consumers can then share their photos and videos with friends, family and co-workers. The NFL and Moverati has cameras set up at several events in the NFL Experience, including the Lombardi Trophy, Play 60 field games, and the Under Armour Run to Daylight 40 yard dash.
President Josh Whitaker has been in the sports industry for years, heading marketing efforts for KTM North America and Red Bull North America.
With social networking at the forefront of business marketing, Whitaker is leading an effort to allow people to videos at sporting events where capturing a video may not have been possible. The videos are giving companies like Under Armour, EA Sports, and the NFL opportunities to have branding on the thousands of videos being shared by Moverati users.
The videos are automatically available via web, so the consumer can share their experience via mobile phone as the action is happening.
