 By Deborah Cohen (Reuters) - The Startup America Partnership, a nonprofit organization working with the government to fund innovation and create jobs, on Tuesday unveiled a new online platform and $330 million worth of product and service commitments designed to help early stage companies, CEO Scott Case told Reuters. "We've been listening to startups around the country," said Case, who previously co-founded discount travel service and now runs the private-sector arm of Startup America, a government initiative announced by President Obama in January. "Startup America is all about helping America's high-growth young companies be successful and create jobs," Case said. The products and services will be offered for free by 14 providers, among them Dell Inc, Dun and Bradstreet (I used to work for D & B Hong Kong office) and LeadMaster, he said. Small businesses that register on the site (here) gain access to these and other resources, which to date total about $730 million in value, Case said. He aims to have more than 100,000 small businesses registered by the first quarter of 2012. Once approved, registered small businesses will have access to resources in five areas: talent, services, expertise, customers and capital. "You'll get through very quickly and be able to access all the resources through a really cool dashboard built on top of Salesforce (CRM.N)," he said, referring to the online provider of customer relationship management. The platform will also help investors such as venture capital firms identify and interact with companies in specific sectors of interest, he said. This week the program is holding its DEMO Fall conference in Silicon Valley. Biz2Credit, one of the new providers in the Startup America Partnership, is hopeful the new platform will help it meet its target of reaching 110,000 new startups in need of financing in the next year. "We have been working very closely with Startup America in the last few months," said CEO Rohit Arora, who is offering $40 million of services in the form of a complimentary three-month premium membership, free access to its proprietary BizAnalyzer tool and half off Equifax credit reports. "This is going to open up a lot of opportunities." I think every startup or new business owner should check this out.

I am also a member of CorePower Yoga.  They use a dynamic combination of heat and humidity to assist the purification of the body and mind. Heat is an essential component to change and transformation. In the same way you heat gold in order to purify it, they heat bodies. Although the class experience is intense you leave feeling energized and so much better than when you walked in! CPY uses a unique blend of heat, humidity, music, and breath to movement postures to facilitate the over health and well being.
Your first week is FREE. So please take advantage of the unlimited pass and try the different styles of yoga we offer. The 3 main styles are CorePower Yoga, Hot Power Fusion, and Yoga Sculpt. CorePower Yoga is power yoga style based class on linking movement to breath. The sequences are creative and intuitive.  Hot Power Fusion is a class the keeps the structure of a sequence for yogi’s that prefer consistency. Yoga Sculpt uses the foundation of power yoga with the addition of light dumbbells to enhance muscle definition and increase strength. This class is more upbeat and fun!
