Dad Reportedly Causes Brain Damage In Child By Withholding Doctor Care For Alternative Mannatech Products

Dad can't appeal hospital delay sentence | General | National News | thedaily.com.au

An alternative medicine devotee jailed for causing his sick daughter brain damage when he failed to take her to hospital has been refused leave to appeal his sentence.

The father - who cannot be named - was sentenced to a maximum term of three years' jail in the Brisbane District Court in December after pleading guilty to causing grievous bodily harm to his 11-year-old daughter.

He was ordered to serve a minimum of six months behind bars for failing to seek treatment for the gravely ill girl in September 2006.

During the original hearing, the court was told the girl had been suffering from a heart infection for two weeks before her father finally took her to Toowoomba Base Hospital.

Her temperature was 42 degrees celsius, she had been hallucinating and was weak, pale and could no longer walk.

The court was told her mouth was peeling, black and clogged from Mannatech - an alternative medicine - which her father had been giving her in extremely high doses.

The doctor who finally examined the 11-year-old said in a report the girl was as "sick as the sickest person I've ever seen in 35 years".

The girl now uses a wheelchair, has reduced vision and severe, ongoing cognitive and fine motor skills.

Herbalife Beckham Growth Bump Seems Over - Volume Down

Herbalife Ltd (NYSE:HLF) - Unfavourable currency impact is likely to impact revenue growth. | ResearchOracle.com

Herbalife’s top operating regions ceased to perform well in 4Q 08, primarily due to unfavorable currency impact and decline in volumes. However, going forward, Management expects to focus on volume growth in top markets. Sales growth in Herbalife’s largest market; the US, is expected to be driven by the continued expansion of the Nutrition Club concept and Weight Loss challenge. The Nutrition Club selling concept proved to be beneficial as the company launched a low calorie meal option, selling at US$2, which proved to be popular with consumers seeking a healthier and lower cost alternative to most fast food options. In Mexico, Value Added Tax (VAT) is expected to negatively impact volume growth, as the Mexican government has implemented 15% VAT during August 2008 on certain products, which is likely to impact the import and resale of some of Herbalife’s products.

Tupperware Designs Products To Fit India Lifestyle and Culture

Made For India

Tupperware India started operations in India with products selected from its existing international portfolio. Within a few years, though, it had begun modifying products to appeal to Indian consumers and soon began designing specifically for the local market. The spice box is a classic example. Using existing modular containers, Tupperware created an ergonomically sound, rectangular spice box. It was a neat, space-saving design — and it bombed. The traditional spice box in India is made of metal and is round, with round containers inside. Feedback from the sales force revealed that consumers would accept a plastic alternative, but not an altered shape. Tupperware now sells a round version designed and manufactured in India.

Even the serving spoons in India are custom-made, points out Anshu Bagai, head of marketing for Tupperware India. “The shapes are very different from what is sold in other markets,” he says. “Indians have specific designs for serving rice, gravies and dry dishes.”

Tupperware India hasn’t just introduced new products in India, it has also added new materials. Typically, the company manufactures containers in polypropylene, a cloudy plastic. Given Indian consumer preferences, it has now introduced dinner sets in melamine and upgraded its factory to manufacture polycarbonate, a clear plastic. “Every market is different, but we find customization has to be of a higher degree in India,” Bagai says.

Amway Celebrates 50th Anniversary

Amway celebrates 50th anniversary with private concerts: Wynton Marsalis, LeAnn Rimes and Sting - Grand Rapids News - The Latest News, Blogs, Photos & Videos – MLive.com

GRAND RAPIDS -- Grammy winners Sting, Wynton Marsalis and LeAnn Rimes are scheduled to perform in Grand Rapids in May. But unless you and your friends are selling a lot of cosmetics, vitamins or soap for Amway Global, you probably won't be able to get a ticket.

As part of its 50th anniversary celebration, the Ada Township-based multilevel marketing giant is bringing the acts for private shows to entertain about 1,400 of its top-level executives and distributors beginning May 20.

Marsalis, a jazz trumpeter and composer, will perform a private concert May 21 at DeVos Performance Hall, followed by a fireworks display over the Grand River.

Rimes will headline "Country Evening" for celebration attendees May 22 at the Amway Grand Plaza Hotel.

A private May 24 show by Sting, lead singer of The Police, at Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park amphitheater caps the events.

All three have performed during the past couple of years in Grand Rapids.

Last May, Rimes played two nights with Kenny Chesney in Van Andel Arena. The same month, Sting appeared as part of The Police tour. Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra performed in DeVos Hall in June 2007.

The action doesn't stop in Grand Rapids.

On May 28, an even larger group of Amway distributors and executives are invited to a private Elton John concert at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
