"These benefits are designed to help self-employed and small business owners who haven't, up until now, had ready access to all the advantages which large corporations enjoy. They included discount dental, vision and hearing care, as well as group rates on medical and health insurance for the owner, their family and employees", says Vicki Rolens, Managing Director of FACT.

Also, for the first time in the association's 23-year history, consumers can sign up for a free 30-day Membership.

FACT benefits include:

  • Business recovery aid in the event of a problem beyond the owner's control
  • Free advertising of the business' product or service on FACT's Web site
  • Free "Help-Wanted" ad placement on FACT's Web site
  • Eligibility to apply for individual and family medical insurance, underwritten by an A-rated carrier
  • A free subscription to "Eye on Washington" Reports, providing unbiased information on
legislation which may directly impact the small business owner and the consumer in general
  • Substantial discounts on dental, eye wear and hearing benefits
  • Savings on prescription drugs
  • Savings on wellness benefits (weight loss programs, stop smoking programs, vitamins and mineral supplements, etc.)
  • Eligibility to apply for continuing education financial aid scholarships
  • Free access to a Consumer Hotline and Library
  • A free subscription to a newsletter which addresses many of the small-business owner's needs
  • Eligibility to apply for classroom and community grants
  • Professional travel advice -- and substantial travel discounts on cruises, hotels, vacations and rental cars

The full roster of benefits is being expanded regularly, and may be reviewed by visiting the website. To take full advantage of FACT membership, all that a self-employed individual -- or any consumer -- needs to do is visit www. usafact. org, click join now, and fill in a few blanks.

Oh Baby London, the designer kids fashion brand, has launched its Spring/Summer 2008 collection to buyers around Europe. Take a sneak preview of the collection here www. ohbabylondon. com/blog (http://www. ohbabylondon. com/blog) and read about the collection's travels.

The collection features new stripy tops and new versions of the ever popular 'I Rock' slogan. Doily inspired girls outfits and more classic Oh Baby London butterflies also feature.

The best selling 'You are all dinosaurs' slogan makes a re-appearance along side new ironic statement 'Too Cool for School', to remind us never to take this dressing-up stuff too seriously.

There's also more denim - amazingly popular since its launch in 2007.

With new colour combinations and new patterns, Oh Baby London founder Hannah McHalick says "It's our most fun collection yet. We have great staple pieces now with the denim jeans and stripy patterns, so we wanted to add a bit more humour to the range and reflect the fun in Spring time coming around."
