Glove can also be used with computer software, SoundingBoard? and other switch-compatible apps, electronic whiteboards and even some wheelchair controls. With three sizes to choose from, and a ventilated design, users can comfortably wear this glove all day long.
Originally developed for the gaming and industrial design markets by Iron Will Innovations in Canada, AbleNet had the foresight to recognize the Freehand? Glove’s potential in helping people with disabilities, as well. ?We are proud to introduce more consumers to this fabulous computer assistive technology device from AbleNet,? said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. ?The Freehand? Glove Kit is truly a ‘wearable computer interface’ that allows people with disabilities and physical challenges to more easily use computers and other electronic devices with ease. With over thirty ‘contact points’, this glove offers dozens of possible combinations and allows for just about any finger movement to become a ‘switch activation’. It is no wonder that AbleNet’s products are used in hundreds of thousands of classrooms, clinics and homes throughout the world, and we are thrilled to offer the innovative Freehand? Glove, along with many other helpful AbleNet products to our customers.?

EDUmobile.ORG has launched an iPhone Development Online Course that teaches candidates via Online Video, PDF Documents, One-on-One sessions and Weekly Worksheets. There is also an option to access a remote Mac, for those who do not have access to one. Candidates get a certification on completion and an option to co-publish their first app on the Apple App Store where they get to keep 80% of the revenues.
There is a lot of buzz about some independent developers and newbies who have made between $ 100,000 to $ 500,000 by simply creating their first iPhone application and putting it up for sale on the online Apple Store.
Steve Demeter made a simple puzzle game called Trism, and in 2 months he earned $ 250,000. Last December the app called iFart became the number one app on the App Store. It stayed on the top and raked in $ 9200 each day in profit after Apple’s cut. Then, Ethan Nicholas, developer of the now famous iShoot game, earns $ 21,000 per day selling his iPhone app. Ethan quit his day job to work full time on the iPhone and he did not even know how to write Objective-C code before he made iShoot.

A certificate is also offered to all candidates once they complete the course.The Course duration for is between 4 to 12 weeks depending upon the developers past experience in programming.

Vogelsinger Soccer Academy Announces International Coaching Staff for 2012 Summer Soccer Camps Offered by US Sports Camps
(PRWEB) February 16, 2012
The Vogelsinger staff includes international coaches with numerous national team ?caps? to their credit and several who have played on World Cup teams from such countries as Morocco, Uruguay, Italy and Peru.
Other coaches are former professional players from England, Denmark, Sweden, Wales and Brazil. Each year these coaches come together from around the world to join professional stateside staff bringing their expertise and passion for the game of soccer to students.
The Master Coaches have been trained by Huber Vogelsinger for many years. Each one of these coaches has a unique specialty that makes our program the best education in soccer. ?We are extremely proud of a staff that is both excellent and unique,? says Jan O?Connor, EVP of US Sports Camps. ?No other program in the country offers the wide array of internationally-sourced professionals.?
Doug Parra is a senior staff member with 33 years of experience at the Academy. He is the National Director and Coordinator of the Vogelsinger Academy. Doug oversees the Vogelsinger soccer program and coordinates master coaches and staff with students. His technical teaching skills are unique and directly inspired by his mentor, Hubert Vogelsinger.
Mustapha Achab is one of the master coaches for the Academy goalkeeper program. Mustapha is a former Moroccan international goalkeeper with over 400 professional appearances. He is assisted by Matt Kennedy, (USA), Graziano Baldanzi (Italy) and Gino DeLuca (Italy).
Matt Kennedy is a former professional player and a member of our Academy staff for 27 years. He is the head technical instructor and Soccerobics instructor. Matt also coaches goalkeepers, having played for 10 years in the NASL, MSL, ASL and USL. He is assisted by Eddie Pedersen of Denmark and Javier Gonzalez of Mexico.
Steve Burton comes from England where he coaches with a professional football club. He has been a member of Academy staff for 12 years. Steve is the head tactical instructor. Students also benefit from his technical skills in goalkeeping and from his administrative experience. He is assisted by Chris Quidley (England), Darran Jones (Wales), Fabrizio Benedetti (Italy), and Allan Martin (Scotland).
Javier Gonzalez is a former Mexican international player who has been a member of the Academy staff for 15 years. He is the head dribbling and Soccerobics instructor.

The Vogelsinger Soccer Academy sets the standard for excellence in soccer education. Founded by the extraordinary coach and teacher Hubert Vogelsinger in 1965, the Academy offers a unique, dynamic soccer environment in which players master the mental, physical and technical skills of the game. We offer one, two and three week programs. The precise step-by-step teaching methods create a crystal clear picture of each skill through explanation, demonstration and participation. When students master the mental skill of visualization, they ultimately generate a self-role model for perfecting each physical skill. As the ?mind?s eye? sees every detail of correct technical positioning, what the mind conceives the body can then achieve. The international professional staff guides each player to acquire the technical mastery and mental focus that equal success in the game of soccer.
