"This time of the year always reminds me of the comfort of keeping warm during the first winter snow," says Dan Kim, founder and chief concept officer for Red Mango. "Watching snowflakes fall while being surrounded by the smell of hot cocoa was the feeling I wanted to capture with our Artisan Hot Chocolate."
Kim, who is committed to reproducing distinctive seasonal experiences into new all-natural holiday treats, suggests savoring the Artisan Hot Chocolate with a dollop of whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. The "Artisan" in the name pays tribute to the company's expertise in flavor innovation. True to the company's mission for indulging the natural and healthy way, Artisan Hot Chocolate from Red Mango combines the best of ingredients to melt away the winter chill while elevating the hot chocolate drink to a new level.
Made with all-natural chocolate and nonfat milk, and infused with Ghirardelli® premium cocoa, the velvety Artisan Hot Chocolate is the company's newest winter offering with indulgent rich chocolate swirled with any of four luxurious flavors: Double Chocolate, Raspberry Chocolate Truffle, Irish Chocolate Creme, and Chocolate Amaretto.
The Artisan Hot Chocolate collection is available for a limited time at participating locations nationwide throughout the winter season.

Congratulations to Chief Hal Doughty of Durango Fire & Rescue
The June winner of Safe Firefighter of the Month is Chief Hal Doughty of Durango Fire & Rescue in Durango, Colo. Prior to coming to Durango two years ago, he was with the Farmington Fire Department for almost 20 years.
During his time with the company, Chief Doughty has implemented a program for company performance tasks (CPTs) that involve “playbook” operations for structure fire calls. He has expanded this to cover wildland fires, and continues to expand the CPTs to other fire service operations such as engineering and leadership roles for captains and BCs.
Chief Doughty saw a need for a fitness program as most line firefighters had no particular regimen in the gym, and fitness seemed relatively voluntary. He did quite a bit of research and came up with the Cooper Institute for health and fitness evaluations. These evaluations give individuals a baseline fitness level and goals to make for the next year. The bottom line is if you participate at all in the program you will improve.
Along with the Cooper evaluations, the department does a pack test every year, and Chief Doughty has also implemented a Fitness Assessment Test (FAT) for return to duty for a line firefighter who gets injured on the job. Chief Doughty has written a Fitness SOP to include a medical physical plan, Annual Fitness Assessment Test, Pack Test, Fitness Program and Wellness Program.
In addition, Chief Doughty is working with neighboring mutual aid fire departments on a countywide accountability SOP to include passport placards and on-scene company tags. He is also working on a countywide Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) SOP. Other things the chief is working on to keep his team and community safe are:
- Developing expectations for fire captains;
- Supporting efforts for a preplan program;
- Forming a CADET program at the high school level to teach a Firefighter 1 class;
- Setting up Blue Card, Acting In Capacity (AIC) Engineer, Captain and BC programs.
He is also working on Operational SOPs to include ICS/Command bundle, Staging SOP, Accountability SOP, Communication SOP, Response SOP, Structure Fire SOP, RIT, Technical Rescue bundle, EMS bundle and HazMat bundle.
Chief Doughty feels that by implementing these programs and SOPs, as well as others to follow, it makes following the “Rules of Engagement” or the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives more natural and second nature.

Dior’s revolutionary HydrAction skincare series works both on the surface and deep in your skin to quench and transform a parched countenance. The Aquacapt complex plump up the skin while the Aquaporin technology hydrates by improving the circulation of water between cells.
If you have sensitive skin, and cleansers leave your face as dry as the Sahara. Skinvac’s dermatological cloth may be a less irritating option. The Daily Cleanser towellete’s ultra-fine grip texture wipes away pore-clogging residue and protruding whiteheads while the Exfoliation cloth stimulates skin cell renewal. Just rinse them after each use, and wash occasionally with a few drops of detergent. For more info visit www.skinvac.com
Want to wake up to brand new skin? Clinique’s Pore Minimizer Thermal Active Skin Refiner rescues dull-looking skin by getting rid of pore-stretching dead skin cells. This dual action formula uses a combination of chemical (salicylic acid) and physical (cellulose beads) exfoliants to refine skin. It has the additional ingredient of calcium chloride (which warms upon contact with water) to dislodge impurities.
Spots and freckles have no fighting chance against Cosme Decorte’s Whitelogist. This formula boasts a cocktail of melanin inhibiting ingredients such a rock rose extract, melothria extract, polyphector and coffee seed extract. These combine with phospholipids to produce the PAC-Oligomer complex, which transforms dark-coloured melanin into colourless melanin.

Throughout the day, it is important to have enough water in our body for our well-being. Body fluids can be lost through sweat as we engage in various physical activities in our home and workplace. The fact is, proper hydration is essential to our way of life. Whenever we hydrate, we flush out the toxins and give every cell in our bodies the water it needs to function properly.
We enjoy a burst of energy when we take that sip of water all because dehydration can slw down our metabolism. And thirst is just one of the body signals that tell us that we need to bring back the water we lose.
Good thing there's Viva! Mineralized water. It hydrates, cleanses and revitalizes your body.
A simple sip of Viva can help regulate body temperature and can take out the impurities from our bodies. And since water carries nutrients to our cells, drinking Viva can prove to be beneficial for all metabolic processes that occur in our body.

Sample Press Release for a Hotel's Valentine's Day Promo
The Peninsula: The Art of Love
“If music be the food of love, play on…”
“better is a dinner of herbs where love be…”
“for he on honey-dew hath fed…”
The connection between appetite and love or mood is well attested. Food has the task of nourishing the body and brain, love of feeding the soul and spirit, and sometimes the two overlap. The writer Isabel Allende says, quite simply, that any food prepared with love has magic in it.
