paper-shredding services by Staples save you time

Are you starting 2013 on the wrong foot with last year’s clutter and the same-old-same-old inability to find things, etc? You know, the clutter and frustration you said you were gonna get rid of by New Year’s Day? Well, that deadline has come and gone and February is a breath away. It’s really time to stick to your resolution and make neatness a reality because let’s face it – You resolved to be better about these things because your instinct told you it’s good for you, for your family and your finances. Staples® has made something as simple (but necessary and plain dreadfully boring) as shredding papers (especially the ones that contain personal information) easier than ever. Just bring your documents to Staples and Staples and their partner Iron Mountain will shred them for 79 cents per pound. Let’s hope you don’t have your own “mountain” of junk papers, but honestly, if you do, don’t feel overwhelmed. Staples’ approaches are very solution-oriented with a healthy dose of convenience and mental peace of mind. And in the process, you might as well add some visual flair too. I believe a nice-looking workspace can help clear the mind, so ideas flow better and self-reminders too. You know, the memory between your ears that’s not on a “chip”! Take a look at these cool Martha Stewart and Arc office supplies.

Come Face to Face with Stem Cell Science

lfelineYou’ve probably heard tons about stem cells in the news over these past few years. Did you know stem cell extracts help speed the production of new skin cells to make skin healthier? Damaged skin cells causing fine lines and wrinkles and superficial imperfections are quickly outnumbered by the proliferation of healthy cells. Growth Factors and other messaging molecules help regulate collagen and elastin. Telomerase continually rebuilds DNA but it is only present in minute quantities in your skin. Stem cells have enough telomerase to make them immortal, and continue to make new cells, forever. This can yield millions of new, healthy skin cells – creating and sustaining self repair and renewal. During the World Stem Cell Summit in 2008, it was declared that pluripotent stem cells will change everything. How exciting! Lifeline® Skin Care is the only skin care line that is based on human parthenogenetic (non-embryonic) stem cells, which can divide and proliferate for long periods. Stronger, healthier skin is your best defense against skin aging. During the typical aging process, you may have noticed skin becomes thinner and more easily damaged and discoloration becomes more apparent. But in an independent clinical study, the resultsnamed showed 73% improvement in firmer, tighter skin, 63% improved skin tone and brightness, and – what I’m excited to find out personally – a whopping 93% improvement in skin hydration! Bioactive growth factors are encapsulated in a lipid bi-layer to enhance skin penetration. They release only after being absorbed. Plastic surgeon Gregory Keller, MD says while “Stem cell therapy may sound like magic. But it’s not really. It’s Life Science.” Yes, I do remember biology class years ago, but at the time, very little was known, if anything about stem cells, so we are living in extremely exciting times.

Eye Firming Complex with HSC-X™ The new Eye Firming Complex from Lifeline is the first stem cell eye cream to incorporate human stem cell extracts to help skin cells produce more collagen. The skin surrounding the eyes is the thinnest skin on the body; because it’s so fragile and weak it’s also the first area to reveal lines and wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. With age, the skin around the eyes becomes even thinner. Human stem cell extracts (HSC-X™) in Lifeline Stem Cell Skin Care can help increase skin thickness, and make the skin less vulnerable to premature aging. The natural proteins, peptides and growth factors help stimulate collagen production to firm and tighten skin, reduce puffiness and brighten dark circles. The formula also includes other active ingredients to replenish moisture and supply nutrient

Features + Benefits

Five key ingredients work together to firm and tighten skin: HSC-X™ ~ Human stem cell extract is a patented formula using cultured non-embryonic stem cells to stimulate collagen and elastin production and provide epidermal, keratinocyte and fibroblast growth factors to firm and smooth skin. Stabilized Vitamin C ~ Reduces UV-induced cell/DNA damage, promotes collagen formation and protects from free radicals. Matrixyl 3000 ~ Supports the activation of skin repair with two peptides that help to firm skin, minimize wrinkles and improve tone and elasticity. Hyaluronic Acid ~ As a super-hydrator, this molecule helps skin retain moisture and holds together the skin’s structural components, collagen and elastin. Dynalift ~ A plant-based ingredient that provides both an immediate and enduring tightening effect.
Anti-inflammatory benefits are provided by: Encapsulated Caffeine ~ Calms, soothes, minimizes irritation and redness. Proven to help reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. Caffeine provides protective benefits when applied before UV exposure.
• Dermatologist tested • Allergy tested • Non-irritating • Non-sensitizing

Availability: Lifeline Stem Cell Skin Care products are available online at and from dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and destination resort spas and day spas

About Lifeline Skin Care, Inc.: Lifeline® Skin Care Inc. develops luxury, anti-aging skincare products based on proprietary stem cell technology owned by International Stem Cell Corporation (ISCO). ISCO, a California-based biotechnology company, is best known for being the first company in the world to create human parthenogenetic (non-embryonic) stem cells.

About International Stem Cell Corporation (ISCO) International Stem Cell Corporation is a California-based biotechnology company focused on therapeutic and research products. ISCO’s core technology, parthenogenesis, results in creation of pluripotent human stem cells from unfertilized oocytes. With the highest respect for life, ISCO reiterates that these proprietary cells avail ethical issues tied to usage or destruction of viable human embryos. ISCO is advancing novel human stem cell-based therapies where cells have been proven to be efficacious but traditional small molecule and protein therapeutics have not. “From a single stem cell line we have the potential to provide tissue that matches millions of people to organ donor standards, which reduces or eliminates the need for immunosuppressants. We’re going where no other company has – developing ethical, potent cells that will be used to regenerate and repair damaged and diseased tissue. The future is both exciting and challenging. But the results are immensely rewarding – in the laboratory, in the clinic, and now, at home.” More information on ISCO’s website,
