Dr. Leslie Kaye, Psychologist Specializing in Starting Over, Starts Over with Historic 1850 Cadieux Farmhouse

Grosse Pointe, MI (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

The Cadieux Farmhouse is the last remaining example of French frame architecture from the ribbon farm era, built by Detroit’s French Canadian settlers, the Cadieux family.

Today, July 9, 2014 9am to 11am, you will see it slowly roll down the streets of Grosse Pointe to it’s new home. Beaumont Hospital Grosse Pointe needed to move the historic home to make room for it’s expansion. French and English speaking psychologist Dr. Leslie Kaye ( was midway through an around the world trip when she heard about the home. She visited Tahiti, Moorea, Hong Kong, Cambodia. Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Russia, Turkey, Kenya, South Africa, Argentina, and Brazil 2013-2014. “Still, there is no place like home!” she says. “This little house has completely captured my imagination and has done my heart so much good! It gave me a reason to come home.”

In 2009, Dr. Leslie Kaye had it all: a Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, a McGill Montreal General internship, a two year Harvard Medical School fellowship. Over seven years she built a booming psychology practice and the hospital she worked with wanted to triple it. She had several college teaching gigs. She was President of Detroit’s International Institute Board of Directors, had a yacht at the Detroit Yacht Club that she had once lived aboard, and owned a large riverfront home in Windsor that she loved. But when the man she loved proposed, asked that she come away with him to Florida, and promised that she never had to work again, she left to do volunteer work with her church and marry.

But in 2014, she needed to start over. “Rebuilding is hard. I’ve helped many clients start over. But this time it was me.”

FOBO Tire Exceeds Their Initial Funding Goal By Over 400%

Ipoh, Malaysia (PRWEB) September 24, 2014

FOBO Tire launched a crowdfunding campaign on September 1st in order to introduce their Bluetooth Smart Tire Pressure Monitoring System to the public. Since launch, the company has dramatically exceeded their initial funding goal in less than half of the campaign duration time-frame. To date, they are standing at 425% of their initial goal, and the campaign shows no signs of slowing down. The FOBO Tire device has gathered news and media attention throughout the world due to the companys claim of being the worlds first all Bluetooth Smart Tire Pressure Monitoring System. The device is essentially peace of mind for travelers, in a very small package.

FOBOs senior manager, Jonathan Ho, commented that this amazing worldwide response has taken them by surprise. Ho said the team is very pleased with the reaction they are receiving, and believes that FOBO Tire has gained market acceptance so quickly because it is the first Bluetooth Smart TPMS that provides 24/7 tire pressure monitoring, and works directly with a users smartphone (iOS & Android) even when the cars ignition is switched off. An added bonus is the fact that the FOBO Tire smartphone app can simultaneously monitor up to 20 cars, which means a parent can keep an eye on their spouses car, their own car and the kids cars at the same time. Or a company can keep an eye on all of their company cars, ensuring proper tire inflation and enabling them to address an issue before a problem arises or before the next person needs to use the car.

According to Ho, existing Bluetooth TPMS solutions on the market use 433MHz radio frequency from the tire sensor which is then channeled through a Bluetooth transmitter powered by the car battery. The drawback of such solutions meant that it could not provide tire pressure reading when the car ignition is switched off. However, with FOBO Tires all Bluetooth Smart connection, this is not a problem. The tire sensors can connect directly to the smartphone and give real time reading, anytime around the clock. The team believes that this is one of the features making their campaign so successful. People like the idea that their car tires are being monitored, even when they are not in the drivers seat. The idea that a user can get a flat or a soft tire taken care of long before they are late for work is a big selling point to most people.

With the overwhelming response and feedback the team is receiving on Indiegogo, FOBO has decided to expand their line and recently announced FOBO Bike for 2 and 3 wheelers. This will give owners of these vehicles the same 24/7 real-time tire pressure monitoring that car owners will have. Both FOBO Tire and FOBO Bike are still available on Indiegogo at promotional prices until October 16th 2014. FOBO is committed to their November 2014 delivery of FOBO Tire, and March 2015 delivery of FOBO Bike. Full details can be found on the Indiegogo campaign page.

About FOBO:

FOBO is owned and operated by a group of specialist who focus on integrating the latest Bluetooth technologies into innovative electronics products. Their newest innovations are FOBO Tire and FOBO Bike which are both designed and manufactured in Malaysia.
