Brad Cooper Granted New Trial: North Carolina Supreme Court Denies PDR in Cooper Case

Brad Cooper Granted New Trial: North Carolina Supreme Court Denies PDR in Cooper Case

The Real Brad Cooper

Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) January 26, 2014

After considering a petition for discretionary review filed by the North Carolina Attorney General’s Office in “State v. Cooper”, the N.C. Supreme Court upheld the ruling of the N.C. Court of Appeals granting Brad Cooper a new trial. Cooper was found guilty in May 2011 of murdering his wife Nancy and was sentenced to life in prison without parole. The homicide rocked Cary, a Wake County town with a reputation for safety and the trial itself made national headlines.

Cooper’s conviction was overturned by the N.C. Court of Appeals because the defense was not allowed to present expert testimony in rebuttal to certain computer and internet evidence offered by the prosecution. The Court of Appeals held that this oversight by the trial court was egregious enough to warrant a new trial.

“This is a real victory for justice,” said Howard Kurtz, trial counsel for Mr. Cooper. “Brad absolutely deserves a new trial and everyone in our office is very excited about the Supreme Court’s decision.”

Mr. Kurtz, who headed Cooper’s defense team during the original trial (08 CRS 22922), is pleased that Brad is getting a second chance to go before a jury but doesn’t expect the trial to occur any time in the near future.

“The Cooper case was the longest non-capital trial to ever occur in Wake County,” Howard explains. “The first trial lasted for 10 weeks, and that was without allowing [the defense] to present the expert testimony that we wanted. This is not the type of case that anyone can be ready for overnight.”

In the meantime, the knowledge that there is still much left to do in the Cooper case is not stopping the defense team from celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision.

“Mr. Cooper still has a long road ahead of him and it will be some time before this case is set to rest once and for all,” remarked Seth Blum, Kurtz’s law partner and co-founder of Kurtz and Blum, PLLC. “That being said, we’re enormously pleased – this really is a step in the right direction.”

Paradigm Malibu Now Provides Gaming and Internet Addiction Treatment for Teens

Paradigm Malibu Now Provides Gaming and Internet Addiction Treatment for Teens

Malibu, CA (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Paradigm Malibu extends their treatment options to include computer and gaming addictions, understanding the world is changing and teen problems are changing along with it. The treatment assists those facing an addiction to the Internet, computers or gaming systems, as these devices are now easily accessed by children of this age group. “Parents concerned about their child and the time he or she spends on the computer, Internet or gaming system now have somewhere to turn for help,” Cole Rucker of Paradigm Malibu declares.

Many programs focus on modifying the behavior of the teen, rather than addressing the underlying causes, which is why parents are choosing to turn more frequently to Paradigm Malibu for teen Internet addiction treatment or teen gaming addiction treatment. “At Paradigm Malibu, we treat the underlying issues to ensure the behavioral changes are long term and that any co-occurring disorders are also treated,” Rucker goes on to say.

Therapists at Paradigm Malibu work with teens to help them identify the feelings and/or stressors which precede the behavior. They also help the teens discover what feelings or relief the behavior produces along with what habits and/or experiences are connected with this behavior. “When teens understand how to evaluate and recognize the nature of the behaviors, they are better able to see the connections in their own lives, which is the first step in helping them overcome the addiction,” Rucker explains.

Teens, with the help of classical and experimental treatment approaches, learn to cope with stress and replace negative behaviors with positive ones. They re-establish a healthy belief system and a positive sense of self while recovering from their addiction. “Parents and teens love the programs offered through Paradigm Malibu as they actually treat the issue rather than just dealing with the symptoms, symptoms which may arise in another form when the underlying issue isn’t addressed,” Rucker continues.

No matter what an adolescent is suffering from, Paradigm Malibu can be of assistance. “Check out the substance abuse, mental health and treatment programs offered at the Malibu facility as well as the addiction treatment programs. Paradigm Malibu also offers a teen grief and loss treatment program, a gifted teen program and one designed specifically for athletes as no adolescent is immune to developing problems, thanks to the many challenges they face on a daily basis. Paradigm Malibu works to help the teens face these challenges head on in a healthy way,” Rucker proclaims.

About Paradigm Malibu:

Paradigm Malibu identifies, understands and properly treats core issues impacting adolescents and their families. Rather than containing behaviors, staff members assist clients by treating the deeper, more difficult issues which impact their lives. Paradigm Malibu treats a variety of conditions, including teen addiction, eating disorders, and drug abuse. Learn more about the Paradigm Malibu offers at

Take a Ride to the Outer Reaches of the Mind at The Museum of Science when “Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience” premieres at Charles Hayden Planetarium on June 22

Take a Ride to the Outer Reaches of the Mind at The Museum of Science when “Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience” premieres at Charles Hayden Planetarium on June 22

Ghosts of Jupiter

Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 30, 2012

On Friday, June 22, 2012, visitors to the Museum of Science, Boston will experience a rock-and-roll journey through space and time, with the premiere of Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience. Celebrating the release of their self-titled album, Ghosts of Jupiter, the Boston-bred rock quintet has partnered with the Museum to create a new eye-popping music entertainment show in the Charles Hayden Planetarium that will take museumgoers on a fantastic ride into the outer reaches of the mind.

“The Museum kept what was great about the old Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd shows… then made it way better.” – Kevin Johnson, Berklee College of Music

Inspired by the classic rock of Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Cream melded with the serious crush of contemporaries like The Raconteurs and The Black Keys, this Boston-based quintet is the rare act that merges all the things you love about rock music into a cohesive whole. Founded by keyboardist Nate Wilson, Ghosts of Jupiter have been steadily making a name for themselves in the New England music scene. The band features the twin guitars of Adam Terrell and Johnny Trama, along with bassist Tommy Lada and drummer Tom Arey holding down the band’s rhythm section. Powerful, fuzzy guitars with soaring, airy vocals; pounding drum and bass lines and ethereal lyrics; songs that evolve over five minutes and riffs that explain themselves in a second: it’s a classic rock feel with a futuristic aura.

Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience is a vibrant combination of the band’s eponymous album and the Museum’s cutting-edge technology. The newly renovated Charles Hayden Planetarium is the most technologically advanced digital theater in New England. Powered by superior full-dome video and audio systems, the theater has created a fully-immersive rock entertainment show that transports visitors through the outermost reaches of space, all underneath the Planetarium’s 57-foot dome screen.

Admission to the Charles Hayden Planetarium is $ 10 for adults, $ 9 for seniors (60+) and $ 8 for children (3-11). For information on tickets and showtimes, please call 617-723-2500, 617-589-0417 (TTY) or visit the Museum’s web site at For additional information about Ghosts of Jupiter, visit:

SpectorSoft Earns Two Mom?s Choice Awards

SpectorSoft Earns Two Mom’s Choice Awards® for Spector Pro and eBlaster Parental Monitoring Software

Vero Beach, FL (Vocus) August 3, 2010

Keeping kids safe online is a primary focus at SpectorSoft Corporation, which today announced that it has been named a Mom’s Choice Awards® recipient in the Family Monitoring software category. SpectorSoft’s best-selling consumer products, Spector Pro and eBlaster, were honored among the best in family-friendly media, products and services by a panel of independent judges, parents and educators.

The Mom’s Choice Awards (MCA) evaluation process scores entries on a range of factors including production quality, design, educational value, entertainment value, originality, appeal and cost. The MCA judges are bound by a strict code of ethics which ensures expert and objective analysis free from any manufacturer association. Products and services bearing the MCA seal help parents, caregivers, educators and retailers select quality materials and products for children and families.

Sarah Darer Littman, mother and author of several teen novels including “Life, After” released by Scholastic Press this summer, uses eBlaster on both of her children’s computers. It emails her reports of websites they have visited, real-time chat logs, Facebook activity and chats, emails, and more. SpectorSoft products are trusted by more than 500,000 consumers, law enforcement agencies and school systems to monitor the precise online activity of children, and identify conduct that may put their safety in jeopardy. Sarah and other parents say that SpectorSoft monitoring software is critical ”because our kids’ safety depends on it.”

“eBlaster has not only helped to catch potentially dangerous situations before they develop, but it has helped me be a proactive parent,” Littman continued. “I try to give my kids as much privacy as possible, and generally do not discuss with them things I see. But if a situation comes up that I think might lead to problems, or I see one of them has visited a site that I think is inappropriate, I can have a conversation about it and talk about things that might be relevant to the situation.”

Spector Pro and eBlaster — Mom’s Choice for Keeping Kids Safe Online

Both Spector Pro and eBlaster monitoring products are easy to use, yet extremely powerful — having earned numerous industry awards for technical excellence from parenting and education magazines and groups.

Spector Pro captures all emails, including web-based services, all chat and instant messaging; all Internet searches, web sites visited, applications run, and includes the best keystroke logger available anywhere. It also provides a DVR-like screen snapshot playback feature so parents can “rewind and play” exactly what was on a child’s computer screen, and includes detailed activity recorders for popular social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook.

eBlaster allows you to monitor the online activity of your children — at work, in another room of your home, while you’re on vacation — even if you’re thousands of miles away. eBlaster records all emails sent and received, both sides of chats and instant messages, keystrokes typed, files uploaded or downloaded, websites visited, online searches, Facebook and MySpace activity, and more. The information is compiled into activity reports that can be sent as frequently as you’d like, to your personal or office email address, which can be checked on a Blackberry, Android, iPhone, iPad, netbook, laptop, Mac, or other Internet-enabled device.

Spector Pro and eBlaster provide powerful blocking capabilities and built-in Keyword Alert Intelligence to examine and analyze all computer activity to determine if you should be notified immediately if your child emails or chats about planning to meet up with others at the park in 20 minutes. The products can be purchased and installed within minutes, and ship with one year of round-the-clock technical support and maintenance. For more information or to purchase a copy of Spector Pro or eBlaster for Windows or Mac OS, visit or call (888) 598-2788.

eMazzanti Article: To Buy or Not to Buy Technology

eMazzanti Article: To Buy or Not to Buy Technology

eMazzanti Outsourced IT Experts

Hoboken, New Jersey and New York City, NY (PRWEB) December 31, 2013

How do businesses know when the best time is to buy new technology? A recent article from eMazzanti Technologies, an IT support expert in the New York City area, provides some guidelines. The article is entitled: To Buy or Not to Buy.

“If every business bought the latest computer technology as soon as it was available, it would probably waste a lot of time and money,” said Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies. “That said, wisely choosing the right technology, at the right time, can be a real boost to productivity.”

Consumer vs. Business Purchasing

Often there’s no clear-cut answer as to which technology is best. For consumers, adopting a new technology is usually a low-risk behavior. If they buy something they don’t like, they’ll simply replace it with something different during their next purchase. It’s a lot trickier for businesses, though. Rarely does it buy just one product at a time, so purchases need to benefit the employees and the company as a whole.

Does it make sense to be an early adopter? Here are several questions to ask:

1.    Does the technology provider have a good reputation? Buying “reputation” is an excellent strategy, especially if deadlines are tight and a decision must be made in a hurry.

2.    Is there a guarantee of reliable product support? Again, name brand hardware and software will stand behind the purchase with local store and headquarters support. If the warrantee is weak, the company is likely to be as well.

3.    Is this a good time to make a change? If you can wait, holidays and mid-year are often the best times of the year to find a bargain. If a company can do without replacing a computer by using an older machine for a few weeks, or a computer from home, the wait can be worth it in terms of getting the most for your money. In some cases, like with software, it’s sometimes a good idea to wait before diving in headfirst. New releases mean new bugs to iron out, so waiting for the next update or patch can benefit you in the long run. But when it comes to technology like notebooks and tablets, there are often benefits to being an early adopter.

4.    Will the new technology be easy to use or will extensive training be required? The longer it takes your employees to learn how to use a new computer or software, the less productive they’ll be. Sometimes, taking time to train a whole department or company makes sense. However, most often hardware and software needs to be intuitive and familiar in order for a purchase to make sense.
