CEDAR CITY, UTAH, USA, May 30, 2019 / — Summer is heating up across the country, which makes it the perfect time for people to start taking advantage of their yard. Whether you have a large space, or a small space to work with, there is always a curb appeal. When the weather is nice, everyone wants to enjoy their yard.

Fortunately, Phaze Concrete has the tips to help you create an outdoor oasis. This company loves the outdoors and have witnessed (and help create) some beautiful yards. Now, they want to share their knowledge by offering outdoor decorating tips to help you take advantage of your yard.

Comfort is Essential

The yard can be a perfect place to enjoy the sights and sounds of the nature that surrounds you. However, if your yard does not have a comfortable place to sit and relax, it is difficult to enjoy anything else. That is why comfort is so crucial to making a yard you are proud of. There is no need for expensive outdoor furniture, though. The only anyone is going to truly care about is that it is comfortable and welcoming.

Add Color

Different colors play a role in our comfortability. Dark colors bring our mood down and light colors help us get excited. Bright and varying (but matching) colors are the perfect addition to any yard. Plus, the degree of colors and exactly what the color comes from is entirely up to you. Colors can come from decorations, lights, or anything that makes you happy.

Plants Give Life to Your Yard

Gardening is either loved or loathed by most people. There is rarely an in-between. Unfortunately, for the people who usually do not like gardening, it is because they do not have a green thumb. The good news is, adding plants to your outdoor décor does not have be difficult. There are plenty of plants that are low maintenance and will thrive in a natural environment. Plus, you do not have to make your yard look like a jungle; simply adding life to it makes the yard more vibrant and inviting.

Get Creative

The most important decorating tip is to make your yard into an area that is comfortable for you. Get creative and have fun with it. Adding décor that make you happy is the only true way to make an outdoor space that you enjoy. Plus, in a creative environment, people feel fresher, rejuvenated, and in-tuned to their own sense of self. This will make guests more inclined to enjoy your yard as well.

In summation, Phaze Concrete is keen to help each of their clients and potential clients enjoy their outdoor surroundings. As is present in the tips Phaze Concrete revealed, the size of the yard does not matter. Rather, it is all about making the best out of the space you have.

Exceed Solar Announces First Sale of its Solar-Powered, Multifunction Utility Space

Solar powered utility space ideal for backyards

The Company received some very exciting ideas on how the SolBank can be used, including building a patio around the exterior and using it as a backyard entertainment centre.”

— Stanton Pawchuk, co-founder of Exceed Solar

SHERWOOD PARK, AB, CANADA, May 29, 2019 / — Exceed Solar, a local developer of solar applications for backyard use, is pleased to announce the first roll out of its unique, solar-powered utility space that incorporates state-of-the-art technology and renewable energy.

The Company’s innovative “SolBank” is an 8×12-foot utility space that is shipped in a flat pack format. The SolBank, which is branded by Exceed Solar under its Sol Spaces division, is constructed using advanced building materials for superior insulation and environmental sustainability and produces up to 1.5 kWh of solar energy.

“The Company received some very exciting ideas on how the SolBank can be used, including building a patio around the exterior and using it as a backyard entertainment centre,” said Stanton Pawchuk, co-founder of Exceed Solar. “There is huge flexibility when you have a space that is well-insulated, energy-efficient, and generates its own power. We are thrilled to introduce this product to the market.”

An ideal solution for backyard environments, the SolBank has many different applications, including office space, artists’ studio, indoor gardening, entertainment centre, storage, or simply to provide convenient, sustainable energy for residential purposes. The SolBank can run on or off grid depending on the application. Off grid applications are ideal for rural settings or additional space on recreational properties.

Exceed Solar’s objective is to increase the adoption of solar energy by introducing smaller, backyard applications such as greenhouses, utility spaces and garden suites for full, year-round living. The Company uses environmentally friendly insulted panels for easy construction and transportation, and bundles its products with solar power to remove the complexities of adopting renewable energy.

“Our goal is to simplify solar systems,” Pawchuk explained. “We understand that implementing renewable energy can be an incremental process, so if you’re going to install a utility space in the backyard, why not have it both sustainable and leveraging solar energy?”

The first sale of the SolBank is in an urban setting where the homeowner has south exposure in the backyard but an east/west roof orientation on the house, making rooftop solar installation a less appealing option. The SolBank is located in the backyard with ideal south exposure for the solar panels while also providing 96 square feet of multiuse space.

The homeowner is grid tying the SolBank for a year-round use and to offset some of the energy consumption in the main residence. The project also qualified for municipal incentives for solar installations. The SolBank will also provide power to an existing greenhouse in the homeowner’s yard which will help to extend the growing season.


Exceed Solar ( creates sustainable, scalable backyard spaces and community solutions by leveraging renewable energy and smart technologies. Branded under the name “Sol Spaces”, Exceed’s modern living spaces are the next generation of housing solutions, incorporating scalability, sustainability and renewable energy to become the most efficient living spaces available on the market.

Garden Tillers Market: Segmentation

The garden tillers market by product can be segmented into front-tine, rear-tine, cultivators, and mid-tine. The front-tine segment grew gradually and reached around $440 million in 2018. Front-tine tillers have tines on the front machine, and the rear wheel positioning helps for easy maneuvering. The growth of front-tine tillers can be attributed to the demand from small farms and residential sectors. Further, front-tine tillers are expected to witness a strong demand from developing economies such as India and China.

The rear-tine tiller segment is the second largest segment in the garden tillers market. The growth of rear-tine tillers is highly influenced by the growth of theme parks, golf courses, and cricket and football stadiums. The cultivator segment was the third-largest one in the market in 2018. Affordable pricing and high weeding and soil mixing capabilities are driving their demand in emerging markets.

The garden tillers market by end-user can be segmented into commercial and residential. The commercial sector dominates the market and is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. The rise of commercial construction activities, including office spaces and large parks and gardens in developed countries (the US and Europe) as well as in emerging countries (China and India), is likely to impact the adoption of garden equipment in the commercial segment positively.

Further, the high-power output and the capability of tilling new and hard soil are positively influencing the adoption of commercial tiller equipment. The residential segment is the second-largest end-user. The growing consumer interest in gardening and associated health benefits with the practice and the increasing construction of high-rise residential buildings are the prominent factors responsible for the growth of the residential segment.

Winning Entries Announced in Smithsonian–Cricket Media’s 8th Annual Spark!Lab Dr. InBae Yoon Invent It Challenge

2019 Spark!Lab Dr. InBae Yoon Invent It Challenge

More than 564 Students, through individual and team entries, submitted pioneering inventions to help improve and enhance the lives of older adults.

This group of winners, the honorable mentions, and all the submittals reflect Dr. Yoon’s legacy and vision, including his idea that ‘invention is a state of mind.”

— Sharon Klotz, Head of Invention Education, Lemelson Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, May 24, 2019 / — Aging affects people’s ability to stay socially engaged, mentally and physically active, and complete everyday tasks, but if the highly original concepts and inventions proposed by students around the globe as part of the 8th Annual Spark!Lab Dr. InBae Yoon Invent It Challenge are any indicator, help is on its way. Cricket Media, in partnership with the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation, is pleased to announce the winners of this year’s challenge, which received more than 250 entries from across U.S., South America, Asia, and Europe.

The challenge asked students ages 5–18 to think about a real-world way to help older adults and to devise new, ground-breaking inventions to achieve these goals. For their entries, students were required to follow a seven-step invention process, including identifying a problem, conducting research, sketching their ideas, building a prototype, testing the product, refining it, and marketing it to potential users. The eight winners—four individuals and four teams—and 20 honorable mentions were evaluated by a panel of judges from the Smithsonian, AARP, and Cricket Media.

“[Older adults] love to garden … gardening is good for relaxing, exercising, combating loneliness, and spending time with the family or the community,” say 15-year-old Delaney and Makenzie, inventors of the “Pop Up Planter.” This hydraulic-powered garden bed helps those with limited mobility improve physical, social, and mental health. Addressing the issue of decreased food consumption due to age or medical conditions such as strokes, 11-year-old Ravindu’s Temp Plate is meant to help older adults – who tend to eat more slowly than others – with a means to keep their food warm. Virtual Me, created by 10-year-old Kavi, is an innovative robotic technology that integrates artificial intelligence, virtual reality and augmented reality technology to help older people who live apart from family members to get the emotional support and personal connection they need.

The winners of the team 5–7 age category built Pop Out Stairs, a multipurpose cane that contains a set of foldable stairs, to enable older adults to “feel safe when reaching things up high.” Sophia, winner of the individual 14–21 age category, invented The Helping Hand, a device that helps older adults with arthritis maintain proper oral hygiene. People can slip their hand into a glove that is fitted with various tools for brushing, cleaning, and flossing their teeth, eliminating the need to grip toothbrushes or small pieces of floss.

This year, the two amazing inventions that won the ePals Choice Award, with both receiving tens of thousands of online votes, are the “FIG” created by a team of 11- to 13-year-olds and “The Craw” created by a team of 8-10-year-olds. The “FIG” provides older adults with an easy way to garden indoors and “The Craw” assists older adults in picking up objects off the ground while also serving as a safety light.

“These young inventors have taken the time to research and understand the complexities of aging and have devised brilliant inventions to assist and empower the aging population,” says Laura Woodside, Vice President of Education Products at Cricket Media. “We are proud to showcase their inventions on our global platform. Their work is evidence of their innovative thinking, impressive creativity and their admirable desire to improve the quality life for all.”

“The winning entries reflected not only innovative ideas but also the inventive process.” says Sharon Klotz, Head of Invention Education for the Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation. “In fact, the process skills – iterative design, collaboration, prototyping, tweaking based on feedback – are lifelong skills applicable in any context. This group of winners, the honorable mentions, and all the submittals reflect Dr. Yoon’s legacy and vision, including his idea that ‘invention is a state of mind.’

Complete List of Individual Winners, by Age:
• Ages 5–7: The Tomato Picker– Brendan D. (Virginia)
• Ages 8–10: Virtual Me – Kavi S. (California)
• Ages 11–13: Temp Plate – Ravindu K. (Connecticut)
• Ages 14+: The Helping Hand – Sophia I. (Missouri)
Complete List of Team Winners, by Age:
• Team Ages 5–7: The Pop Out Stairs (New York)
• Team Ages 8–10: The Craw (New York)
• Team Ages 11–13: Fig (New Jersey)
• Team Ages 14+: Pop Up Planter (Missouri)
Videos and other details of the top winning inventions and honorable mentions are available here. Age-specific prizes available to the winners include a hands-on behind-the-scenes tour of Smithsonian museums in Washington D.C. that includes consultation with representatives from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, among many other prizes. Honorable mentions will receive a one-year digital subscriptions to any Cricket Media magazine.

Expo attendees are treated to healthy food

An Expo attendee claims her raffle prize

Expo provides free mobile clinics, health and wellness workshops, cooking and gardening demonstrations, and immigration consultations on May 11

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, May 9, 2019 / — South Central nonprofit A Place Called Home (APCH) and nonprofit Urban Farming join forces on May 11 to present APCH’s seventh annual Health and Garden Expo (H.A.G.E.). This event will include free mobile clinics, health and wellness workshops, free vegetable plants, cooking and gardening demonstrations, immigration consultations, healthy food, raffle prizes and more to provide the South Los Angeles community with tools, resources and a taste of a healthy lifestyle. H.A.G.E. is free of charge and open to the public. More than 1,000 people are expected to attend.

Attendees will receive access to basic preventative services and screenings for hypertension, cholesterol, and diabetes, as well as mammography and vision exams; have the opportunity to enroll in a low-cost or free health care coverage program offered by participating local healthcare providers; and attend informational panels intended to increase awareness of the services and programs that APCH and partner organizations provide year-round.

The Expo also features free immigration consultations, fitness classes, CPR workshops, demonstrations on how to prepare nutritious and economical meals, and presentations on the benefits of homegrown food, proper eating habits, sustainable living and urban agricultural practices. In addition, the farmers market will offer free healthy food options for attendees.

As part of its commitment to improving well-being in South Los Angeles, APCH maintains three organic gardens in the neighborhood and distributes thousands of pounds of produce and dry goods throughout the year.

“In a community where many families can’t readily access fresh fruits and vegetables and often can’t afford essential health services, our H.A.G.E. event will provide resources to support participants in embracing healthy living. If more folks in our community ate well and exercised, they could reduce their risk of diabetes, obesity, and other chronic health conditions that are, sadly, all too common in low-income communities,” APCH Executive Director Jonathan Zeichner said.

Attendees will enjoy entertainment, food and raffle prizes, including a grill and patio set, each valued at more than $500. Urban Farming, who joins H.A.G.E. for the first time, is providing the prizes for the main raffle, and one dozen free vegetable plants to the first 250 guests. Children can play in the “Kid’s Fun Zone,” which features games and an exclusive football clinic from the Los Angeles Rams.

Event sponsors include Anthem Blue Cross and Delaware North, who will give a live cooking demonstration.

H.A.G.E. will be held at the APCH Main Campus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, 2019. APCH is located at 2830 S. Central Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90011.

Taking care of your body will improve your overall well-being and appearance, as well as the results of any plastic surgery. You have to do your part, too, to look your best at any age.”

— Dr. Tansar Mir, Plastic Surgeon in New York

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 7, 2019 / — Taking care of your body will improve your overall well-being and appearance, as well as the results of any plastic surgery. As we all age, there are limitations as to what plastic surgery alone can do for you. You have to do your part, too, to look your best at any age. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Tansar Mir explains in a new article. The complete article will be available on Dr. Mir’s blog at

Did you know that September is "Healthy Aging® Month"? The term was coined in by the company’s executive director and the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Carolyn Worthington. This event is now in its second decade, and it is still going strong. Ms. Worthington created this recurring event to tell anybody above age 45 that there’s still time to change habits and take control of one’s health.

Aging has been long given a negative connotation. A few common “aging fears” are:

* Declining health
* Self image
* Running out of financial means
* Not being able to do certain tasks on their own such as drive or run errands like grocery shopping
* Death in the family
* Fear of falling
* Living alone
* Inability to manage daily living activities
* Isolation or loneliness
* Loss of independence
* Getting care from strangers

Think of healthy aging as a process that involves your body, mind, and soul. Following are five tips of healthy aging that you should follow to look and feel your best.

Active Lifestyle

Many people shy away from exercise. Sometimes, even a walk in the park appears to be a challenge. When we say “be active,” what we actually mean is any of your favorite physical activity such as walking, gardening, swimming, or yoga. As long as you are moving and remaining physically active, it will be counted as exercise.

Eat Right

Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits, decrease sodium intake, limit the intake of alcoholic drinks, consume small serving sizes, and eliminate processed foods from your diet. The more colorful your plate, the more energized you will feel throughout the day.


Are you prone to tripping and falling? Aging brings about many problems such as frequent falls, failing eyesight, and forgetfulness. Along with regular medical checkups, make some changes in your house. Clear the rooms of excessive furniture and install handle bars to prevent falls.

Sleeping enough

Get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep. Sleep deficiency may lead to problems in memory, immune system, and concentration. It can also cause Alzheimer’s disease according to the Alzheimer’s Drug Discovery Foundation.

Stress Reduction

Identify your stress triggers and find ways to reduce them. Seek therapy if you cannot handle the pressure on your own. A few tricks that can help you reduce your stress levels include journaling, listening to music, and doing a favorite activity.

If you start by making small changes, you won’t feel overwhelmed. You will immediate feel the change in your body, and including these tips in your regular routine will become quite easy.
