Fulham’s Versatile LED System with Built-in Battery for Emergency Lighting Now Available in Three Wiring Configurations to Simplify Field Installation.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, today announced the addition of a new HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System with bottom side leads and studs (BLS) form factor designed for downlight and troffer installations where the driver resides on top of the fixture. The new BLS configuration makes the HotSpot Plus even more versatile, providing an LED driver with emergency lighting functionality in a compact enclosure that can be easily installed in tight spaces. In fact, the HotSpot Plus is the smallest complete emergency LED system on the market.

The HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System is an all-in-one unit that includes a 0-10V dimmable LED driver, emergency LED driver, and replaceable battery backup, thus eliminating the need to install a separate emergency lighting system. The HotSpot Plus functions as a 40W constant current LED driver with programmable output range of 250-1400mA. In the event of an emergency, the built-in battery automatically provides emergency lighting for up to 180 minutes at 5W or 90 minutes at 10W. In addition to the new BLS form factor, the HotSpot Plus also is available in a compact or linear design with end leads.

“Our HotSpot Plus units showcase some of Fulham’s latest lighting innovations,” said Alvaro Garcia, Product Director LED & Emergency Drivers for Fulham. “The HotSpot Plus combines an LED driver with battery-powered emergency lighting, available in three form factors for any type of installation, and the drivers are fully programmable using our SmartSet systems. Our objective is to deliver innovative, energy-efficient lighting solutions that are easy to install and can evolve with our customer’s needs. Clearly the HotSpot Plus fills the bill.”

One of Fulham’s growing family of smart, programmable LED drivers, the HotSpot Plus LED Driver & Emergency System is programmable in 1mA increments using a handheld SmartSet controller. Fulham’s SmartSet programming enables integration of more efficient lighting modules in luminaire design with programmable step dimming and dim-to-off. It also features an illuminated test switch/AC power indicator and self-diagnostics. The driver comes with a five-year warranty.

Fulham’s SmartSet light programming platform uses either a handheld controller or SmartSet PC Software to control Fulham’s LED drivers. The driver doesn’t have to be powered on to be programmed, and SmartSet includes an auto-program feature that enables fast, one-touch programming of multiple fixtures.

All three models are now shipping from Fulham and its distribution partners in North America.

MintShow Debuts New App at TechCrunch Disrupt with New Twist on Social Media, Using Gamification to Motivate Members

New Online Community Lets Users Share Moments In Time to Achieve, Share, and Celebrate Personal Accomplishments.

you-are-a-ceo-logo

San Francisco, CA, USA — At TechCrunch Disrupt being held here this week, You Are a CEO, Inc., will be introducing the MintShow app and online community in Startup Alley. MintShow offers a new approach to social networking by using gamification to encourage MintShow community members to share personal achievements. MintShow also promises to provide a unique opportunity for brands to reach target consumers by areas of interest and accomplishment.

Unlike other social media networks that use comments, shares, and likes, MintShow celebrates Moments IN Time (MINTs), using High Fives, CompliMints, and ReMints that allow members to share their everyday accomplishments and encourage other members. MintShow posts are organized to motivate, inspire, or educate, and use specific Showrooms to target posts by area of interest and achievement. Showrooms cover a wide range of topics such as health and fitness, nutrition, parenting, travel, inspiration, nature, and entrepreneurship. The beta version of the MintShow mobile app is now available for iOS and Android.

“The social networking market is worth $11 billion dollars and the self-improvement market is worth almost $10 billion and until now, no one has found a way to bring the two together,” said Michael E. Parker, founder of You Are a CEO. “With MintShow we have created an environment where members share positive moments in time to help them focus on personal achievement, without the negatives such as offensive posts or cyberbullying. This is a unique blend of social networking, self-improvement, and gamification, and beta users have already shown us that they love the concept. We are delighted to be able to debut MintShow at TechCrunch.”

Parker sees a number of commercial possibilities for MintShow. Custom advertising can be offered in the context of improved health, wealth, career, and relationship. Advertisers also can create their own showrooms to highlight products and services. Eventually, MintShow also will have a shopping option where users can click to purchase.

The concept behind MintShow is based on behavioral science. Research shows that to achieve personal goals requires motivation which is driven by small wins and positive reinforcement. For ongoing success, achievement has to become a habit triggered by brain’s subconscious. By sharing moments of inspiration and positive reinforcement, MintShow promotes the release dopamine to the brain, creating a positive experience that helps develop a habit for success.

Beta users can sign up by downloading the MintShow app from the iTunes store or Google Play. MintShow is also available on the web at http://mintshowapp.com.

T5 Data Centers’ T5@Atlanta Receives Uptime Institute® M&O Stamp of Approval

T5@Atlanta, One of the Select Data Centers Independently Certified for Best-in-Class Infrastructure Management and Operations.

T5 Data Centers Logo

Atlanta, GA, USA — T5 Data Centers™ (http://www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, today announced that the company’s T5@Atlanta data center has received the Uptime Institute’s Management & Operations (M&O) Stamp of Approval. The Stamp of Approval provides an unbiased, independent assessment that data center Management and Operations meet Uptime Institute standards.

Only a select number of colocation data centers have qualified for the Uptime Institute’s M&O Stamp of Approval. The M&O assessment process evaluates data center staffing, organization, training practices; preventive maintenance, operating conditions, as well as planning, management, and coordination practices for data center resources.

“The Uptime Institute M&O Stamp of Approval provides a proven methodology of assessing operations practices, pinpointing and analyzing operational gaps, and showing an organization’s intention to differentiate themselves as a clear industry leader with a consistent path forward to excellence,” said Lee Kirby, President, Uptime Institute. “We are pleased to congratulate T5 Data Centers on their M&O Stamp of Approval in their Atlanta facility.”

A recent 2016 study by Emerson Network Power estimates that unplanned data center outages can cost organizations up to $9,000 per minute, and human error is one of the most common causes of data center downtime. The M&O Stamp of Approval reduces risk by ensuring that the best collaborative and procedural protocols are in place, and that the data center staff is highly trained. Uptime Institute’s M&O Stamp of Approval provides independent assurance of data center excellence and standardization with optimal staffing, reduced risk of downtime, and efficient operations which reduces operating costs.

“The M&O Stamp of Approval provides independent validation that our T5@Atlanta data center has world-class staffing and management protocols,” said Mike Casey, President of T5 Facilities Management. “We agree with the Uptime Institute’s notion that operational and management issues are fundamental to data center operations, and that with the right people and procedures, you can minimize risk and reduce operating costs. In fact, we formed T5 Facilities Management as an independent operation because we recognize the critical value of M&O.”

Although the M&O Stamp of Approval has been specifically granted for T5@Atlanta, T5 Data Centers is planning to request Uptime Institute certification for other data centers in its portfolio.

lewis-isaac-testa-featured-artist-artist-showcase-lst

Art is a different thing to different people. It can be beautiful or evoke the senses; it can bring out emotions or relax you. To Lewis it has been a long lasting love affair that has been going on for over 50 years now. It has been the one constant that proved to be more valuable to him than he could have ever imagined, and has in turn changed his life for the better.

He paints every day for several hours. He is proud and confident in his works and most importantly; it is therapeutic for him to paint. He feels a freedom when he paints. It is a strange thought and to most who have heard me tell it, if it weren’t for my stroke. He would never have transcended the self-imposed restraints on his life and of course his art had this not happened.

He has overcome so many obstacles in his life and, is grateful that art has proven to be therapeutic and helped him express himself in ways he never thought possible. He feels he is one of the luckiest men on the face of the earth, and is incredibly humbled by what art has brought into his life. Lewis’s website is http://www.lewistesta.com.
