NanoMarkets Report Projects Smart Glass Sales to the Automotive Sector to Reach $3.2 Billion by 2021

Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has published a new report, “Smart Glass Opportunities in the Automotive Industry – 2014” covering the market for smart glass in the automotive sector. In this report the NanoMarkets says it expects this market to reach $2.1 billion by 2019, compared with $1.0 billion in 2014.

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (February 27, 2014) — Industry analyst firm NanoMarkets has published a new report, “Smart Glass Opportunities in the Automotive Industry – 2014” covering the market for smart glass in the automotive sector. In this report the NanoMarkets says it expects this market to reach $2.1 billion by 2019, compared with $1.0 billion in 2014.

Smart glass sales for cars, trucks and public transport are currently dominated by electrochromic mirrors; a relatively mature business. However, the report predicts new revenue opportunities emerging for smart auto glass from active self-dimming windows, self-cleaning glass and self-repairing glass and especially from glass embedded with electronic and photovoltaic capability. Electrochromic mirrors account for 90 percent of smart auto glass revenues today, but this percentage will have dropped to 67 percent by 2019.

Key factors promoting the use of smart automotive glass include enhanced energy efficiency, safety, comfort and style. These factors are not new to the auto industry but ongoing technology improvements allow smart glass firms to better create value with their products.

For more information on the report see: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/smart_glass_opportunities_in_the_automotive_industry_2014.

About the report:

In the report, NanoMarkets analyzes opportunities available for the following categories of smart auto glass: self-tinting glass (electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic and SPD), smart privacy glass, smart mirrors, self-cleaning glass, self-healing glass, device- embedded glass and retrofit window film. Addressable markets discussed include cars, trucks and various forms of public transportation.

The report includes eight-year forecasts of smart auto glass markets in volume (square meters) and value ($ million) terms. It also discusses adoption strategies for smart glass by major automobile/truck companies and the smart auto glass strategies of leading suppliers.

Firms covered in the report include: 3M, American Glass, Apple, ASG, Audi, AutoGlass, Balcony Systems, BASF, Bayer, BMW, Cardinal, Carlex, Chameleon Photochromic Smart Film, ChromoGenics, Corning, Dow Chemical, DuPont, Eastman Chemical/Solutia, GE, Gentex, Guardian, Hitachi, Hypho Technology, International Trading, Mercedes, NDFOS, NeoView Kolon, Nissan, NSG/Pilkington, Pleotint, PPG, Ravenbrick, Research Frontiers, Saint-Gobain, Samsung, Sage, Scienstry, Southwall, Solvay, Suntek, Toray, Transition Window Tint, SWITCH Materials, US e-Chromics, and View.

From the report:

Until recently – apart from electrochromic mirrors – smart auto glass consisted of passive self-tinting windows that adjusted to glare but provided no passenger or driver control so were of limited use. Passive self-tinting glass will continue to sell into the auto sector, but NanoMarkets expects that use of active thermochromic and SPD technologies that provide more control will grow and self-tinting windows will move beyond being just a design feature in expensive cars. As a result, the market for active self-tinting glass/ films will reach around $240 million by 2020.

Automotive windows have previously added intelligence with smart coatings such as electrochromic or self-cleaning materials. However, the latest generation of smart windows uses embedded electronics and photovoltaics as well. This trend is enabled by new solution processing techniques and thin-film devices and will add to the comfort and energy efficiency of cars. On-board photovoltaic capability can add to fuel efficiency by running lights and air conditioning. Windows and sunroofs can become soft cabin lights at night contributing to comfort and design appeal. Device-embedded auto glass is already available and is expected to become a $330 million market by 2020.

The report also notes that in the past “self-cleaning” and “self-healing” glass have really meant little more than short-lived wipe on coatings that facilitate washing off dirt or covering up scratches. New developments in advanced materials now hint at auto glass that actually self-repairs when cracked, while some glass firms look forward to when windshields will not need wipers. As a result, the market for self-healing and self-cleaning glass is expected to reach almost $420 million by 2020.

About NanoMarkets:

NanoMarkets tracks and analyzes emerging markets in energy, electronics and other area created by developments in advanced materials. The firm is a recognized leader in industry analysis and forecasts in smart glass and windows markets, which it has been covering for more than five years.

Woody White Is Best Choice for NC District 7 Voters Who Oppose Amnesty for Illegals

ALIPAC is endorsing Woody White for Congress in North Carolina’s 7th congressional district today due to his opposition to amnesty legislation for illegal immigrants and due to David Rouzer’s prior lobbying efforts to pass amnesty for illegals.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

Raleigh, NC, USA (February 25, 2014) — Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) Press@alipac.us / (919) 787-6009

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is endorsing Woody White for Congress in North Carolina’s 7th congressional district today due to his opposition to amnesty legislation for illegal immigrants and due to David Rouzer’s prior lobbying efforts to pass amnesty for illegals.

“NC voters have a clear choice in the 7th district to replace outgoing Congressman Mike McIntyre,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “David Rouzer has proven he supports a form of immigration reform amnesty for illegal aliens that would disrupt American elections and bring in millions more illegal immigrants while Woody White has pledged to uphold America’s existing immigration and border laws instead.”

David Rouzer was defeated by Mike McIntyre in 2012 because many Republican voters voted Democrat due to Rouzer’s support for amnesty for illegal aliens and McIntyre’s staunch opposition to such legislation. ALIPAC played a key role in that race by endorsing McIntyre.

David Rouzer admitted that he was paid to lobby for amnesty for illegal aliens and continued to support amnesty as a “solution” for illegal immigration during a televised debate with prior GOP primary opponent Ilario Pantano that took place on WECT TV on April 4, 2012.

ALIPAC’s William Gheen went on the record in 2012 telling NC voters that David Rouzer’s friends in Raleigh drew the new 7th district to elect Rouzer from Johnston County.

“David Rouzer is both a Washington, DC, and Raleigh, NC, insider who has used his influence to get the 7th district customized for his congressional run,” said William Gheen. “The last thing NC or America needs right now is another corrupt insider establishment politician like David Rouzer who is willing to put his own desires before what is good for the American public!”

Woody White has completed ALIPAC’s 2014 Federal Candidate survey indicating he is willing to oppose all forms of amnesty for illegal immigrants and instead “Support Americans and legal immigrants by supporting the adequate enforcement of America’s existing border and immigration laws as the US Constitution requires for the protection of American jobs, elections, taxpayer resources, health, and lives.”

Woody White becomes ALIPAC’s 92nd endorsement of 2014 and joins other North Carolina candidates such as Congressmen Walter Jones Jr. and Patrick McHenry, who enjoy ALIPAC’s support due to their opposition to illegal immigration and amnesty.

NanoMarkets Issues New Report on Dye-Sensitized Cell Photovoltaic Market

“Dye-Sensitized Cell Markets -2014,” says that the dye-sensitized cell (DSC) modules market will return to growth and generate revenues of almost $675 million in 2021.

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (February 21, 2014) — A new report from NanoMarkets titled “Dye-Sensitized Cell Markets -2014,” says that the dye-sensitized cell (DSC) modules market will return to growth and generate revenues of almost $675 million in 2021. NanoMarkets notes that the industry is facing brighter prospects after a brutal industry shakeout that has taken place in the solar business over the past few years. Within its report NanoMarkets takes note of capital investments, growth in manufacturing and new applications where DSC makes a reasonable case. NanoMarkets also believes that DSC will now take over many applications where amorphous silicon (a-Si) was the PV technology of choice. DSC offers the advantages of a-Si but at a lower cost, higher efficiency and the ability to operate well indoors.

For more details of the report see: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/dye_sensitized_cell_markets_2014.

About the report:

The solar industry resurgence is leading to more interest in third-generation PV technologies and DSC technology will be a key beneficiary of this trend. In this report, NanoMarkets assesses the current state of the DSC sector and examines the demand for this power source in portable charging devices, embedded electronics, BIPV, digital signage and other retail applications, sensors, military and automotive applications.

This report draws from NanoMarkets ongoing solar industry research program, but we have also provided a thorough discussion of the latest applications directions, capital investments, performance trends and R&D in the DSC space.

In addition, this report contains updated eight-year forecasts of DSC modules with breakouts for all the major applications listed above. For each of these applications projections are provided in revenue ($ million), power (MW) and module area (square meter) terms. An analysis of the business strategy of each of the major DSC players is also included.

Among the firms that are discussed in this report are: 3G Solar, Analog Devices, BASF, Dyesol, Everlight Chemicals, Exeger, Fujikura, Fujimori Kogyo, G24 Power, Merck, Nissha Printing, Oxford Photovoltaics, Peccell, Pilkington, Samsung, Sharp, Showa Denko, Solaronix, SolarPrint, Sony, Tata, Texas Instruments, Timo Technologies and Umicore.

From the report:

A few years ago it seemed that DSC would not survive commercially. But we now see growing private investment from all over the world. DSC is no longer technology that survives on grants from government agencies. Recent investments have enabled firms such as G24 Power and Exeger to expand their production facilities. For others investment in DSC has provided them with a means to develop new products and improve cell performance. Private firms that have made recent direct investments in the DSC business include: Israel Electric, MTI Partners, Ningbo Hauyou Real Estate (China), Parkwalk Advisors, Romande Energie (Switzerland), Tasnee (Saudi Arabia, Wallenstam (Sweden) and the group of private investors that recently refinanced G24 Power in Wales.

Many new applications for DSC modules are also being invented, powering sensors and automotive integrated PV (AIPV) among them. Nonetheless, NanoMarkets says that the DSC business cannot flourish without success in the building integrated PV (BIPV) sector. By 2019, NanoMarkets expects that BIPV will account for 67 percent of revenues. In addition to high efficiency, DSC panels’ advantage in the BIPV space is that they can easily be fabricated to deliver diverse colors, shapes and transparency.

The materials opportunity in the DSC space will remain quite small although materials for DSC cells will approach $170 million by 2021. Although many DSC firms have tended to get their materials from small chemical firms that specialize in selling “R&D” quantities of materials, a few large specialty chemical firms are also interested in this space. These include BASF, Merck and Umicore. Merck in particular has been building DSC partnerships in this space.

While most of the firms active in the DSC space are medium sized firms, the report also notes that there are some giant firms waiting in the wings who could jump in and become industry leaders as the DSC market evolves. These include Samsung SDI, Sharp and Sony.

IAPAM Announces Next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium Dates: April 5-6

The IAPAM has announced the next dates for its respected Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: April 5-6, 2014 in Scottsdale, AZ.

IAPAM

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA (February 20, 2014) — Obamacare promises to make changes that will hopefully help the masses, but clearly there are a number of challenges that physicians will face as a result. However, medical practices can thrive by adding ‘non-insurance based services’ to their portfolio, such as dermal fillers, botox injections, anti-aging treatments, non-invasive body sculpting, and medically supervised weight management. To assist physicians in profitably adding these procedures and programs to their practices, the IAPAM has announced the next dates for its respected Aesthetic Medicine Symposium: April 5-6, 2014 in Scottsdale, AZ.

There has been much talk in the media and physician community regarding the Affordable Care Act, well known as ‘Obamacare’ or the ‘Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’ (PPACA). Many physicians members are concerned about how this new program will impact the health of their patients and the health of their medical practices.

However, there is evidence that by adding non-invasive treatments to a practice, such as botox, dermal fillers, microdermabrasion/microchanneling, chemical peels, body contouring technologies (e.g. skin tightening, fat reduction), lasers for skin rejuvenation/tattoo removal/hair removal, and medically supervised weight management programs (e.g. hCG Diet), would increase the income a practice is able to make as payments will have to be made directly and immediately to undergo these procedures.

To support physicians seeking both clinical and business training in adding these aesthetic modalities, the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine (IAPAM) designed its Aesthetic Medicine Symposium to give physicians all the information, forms, DVDs, hands-on training, etc. they need to begin offering aesthetics when they finish the conference.

The IAPAM is the only complete program that offers:

– An Accelerated program; physicians and their staff can be certified over a weekend;
– Clinical training DVDs to take back to one’s practice;
– Board Certified Dermatologists as instructors;
– Internationally Recognized Certification;
– CME (Continuing Medical Education) credits;
– 1 Year of Practice Support (which continues as long as one is a member);
– And much, much, more!

“The IAPAM has noticed a sharp increase in the registrations for its cosmetic procedures hands-on CME training programs like botox/fillers, lasers, medical microdermabrasion, and non-invasive body shaping; along with its medically supervised weight loss program, all of which are not insurance covered and affect a majority of their existing patients,” says Jeff Russell, Executive Director of the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com). “Patients may not get the long term benefits of a face lift, but with a combination treatment of botox, dermal fillers, weight loss, etc. they can get a great result at a fraction of the price.”

For more information on the IAPAM’s April 5-6, 2014 Symposium with Botox Training, watch this comprehensive video at http://youtu.be/bBQlS0CpOvw or to register for the April 5-6 Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, please contact the IAPAM, at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 704, or visit http://www.iapam.com/aesthetic-medicine-symposium-botox-training.

New York City, NY, USA (February 17, 2014) — According to USATODAY, Google’s vision for wearable technology took another ambitious leap forward Thursday when the world’s largest Internet search company announced it is developing a smart contact lens. The consequences of such as ambitious leap will be debated at Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”, forums to be held throughout 2014 in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechsanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechlondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologies.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechmunich.eventbrite.com).

The project is one of the latest inventions to emerge from the company’s Google X unit, which works on long-term, risky new technology that may never become commercially successful but has the potential to change the way people live in drastic ways. The unit has already produced self-driving cars and connected eyewear called Google Glass.

To make the contact lens, Google had to design its own tiny chips and mount them on very thin, flexible, plastic-like film. The chip and a sensor are embedded between two layers of soft contact lens material. A tiny pinhole in the lens lets tear fluid from the surface of the eye to seep into the glucose sensor. The prototypes can take a glucose level reading once every second, Google said. The project’s co-founders, Brian Otis and Babak Parviz, worked together at the University of Washington. Parviz joined Google X to work on Google Glass and Otis followed soon after and started trying to build a contact lens from scratch.

Google said it has done “multiple studies” to test the comfort and functionality of the lens and explore how tear glucose correlates with blood glucose, particularly in people with diabetes. It is also talking about the technology with the Food & Drug Administration. Wearable Computing Conference 2014 will review the latest developments in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechnologiessanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechnologieslondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologiesnewyorkcity.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechnologiesseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechnologiesmunich.eventbrite.com).

Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014, “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion,” will examine wearable technologies’ functions, application, the competition and possibilities for economic and personal growth.

Parallel Infrastructure Expands Telecom Footprint with Three New Development Agreements in Pennsylvania

Contracts with Allegheny County, SEDA-CoG JRA and Pioneer Railcorp Add to Company’s Communications Development Portfolio.

Parallel Infrastructure Logo

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (February 17, 2014) — Parallel Infrastructure LLC, a leading right-of-way (ROW) management and infrastructure development company, continues to expand its client portfolio with three new telecommunications tower development agreements in Pennsylvania. Allegheny County awarded the company more than 3 million square feet of developable land parcels, while contracts with SEDA-Council of Governments Joint Rail Authority (SEDA-CoG JRA) and Pioneer Railcorp bring an additional 207 miles of corridor to the company’s 1,800-mile communications development portfolio throughout the country.

“There continues to be strong demand to improve telecommunications infrastructure and that means growth opportunities abound for right-of-way property owners,” said Frank Chechile, CEO of Parallel Infrastructure. “By entering into innovative revenue-share agreements, we help monetize our clients’ underutilized real estate without interrupting their core operations. The result is increased revenue for them with little to no risk, and plenty of upside for incremental revenue generation.”

Chechile added that Parallel Infrastructure is seeing increased demand for its capabilities from state and local governments in particular. “With tightening budgets, government entities are making efforts to capture additional revenue by unlocking the value of their real estate,” he said.

As a result of an extensive RFP process, Allegheny County awarded Parallel Infrastructure the telecommunications facility development rights on 14 parcels, totaling more than 3 million square feet of underutilized county-owned land. By partnering with top engineering, architecture and construction firm Jacobs Engineering, Parallel Infrastructure was able to scout and assess developable sites. Moreover, because of its private capital backing, the company was able to offer the County a “win-win” revenue generation prospect, providing quick and recurring payments to the County for each site it develops.

“The County was attracted by the prospect of earning new revenue, and doing so in an efficient and quick manner,” said Ed Myers, Vice President of Telecommunications Sales for Parallel Infrastructure. “We will use our capabilities and our capital to design, finance, build, maintain, and lease facilities to communications service operators, which in turn, will provide the County with a long-term revenue stream without having to spend any of their money.” Myers added that along with telecom development, Parallel Infrastructure will also provide the County with access to its communications facilities to allow it to develop emergency management systems.

SEDA-CoG JRA is a municipal authority with the mission of preserving rail service for industries in Central Pennsylvania and furthering economic development through retention, improvement, and expansion of rail infrastructure. It agreed to allow Parallel Infrastructure to begin evaluating sites for development on nearly 200 miles of the JRA’s railroad right-of-way. This agreement comes on the heels of an earlier tower development agreement on a 25-mile stretch of Pennsylvania ROW owned by Pioneer Railroad. Parallel Infrastructure will begin working immediately with railroad owners and wireless carriers to identify sites for towers along the JRA’s five short line Central Pennsylvania railroads: Juniata Valley Railroad, Lycoming Valley Railroad, Nittany & Bald Eagle, North Shore Railroad and Shamokin Valley Railroad.

These new agreements with Allegheny County, SEDA-CoG JRA, and Pioneer’s Gettysburg & Northern Railroad Line exemplify Parallel Infrastructure’s proficiency in collaborating with the public sector. Myers further commented, “While sharing revenue with a land owner earned from communications infrastructure developments is not a new concept, doing so in a comprehensive manner with a government land owner is the type of public-private arrangement that forward-thinking entities, such as these agencies, are using to institutionalize revenue capture opportunities.”

New York City, NY, USA (February 16, 2014) — InformationWeek’s Kristin Burnham claims to have seen the future. Accessories that buzz when the email you’ve been waiting for lands in your inbox. Devices that help you sleep more soundly. Gadgets that photograph and document your day, start to finish. Meet the latest innovations in the rapidly growing — and lucrative — industry of wearable tech, at Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”, forums to be held throughout 2014 in San Francisco (March 18), London (May 29), New York City (January 30), Seoul (September 25) and Munich (November 20).

Research company Visiongain predicts that the global wearable tech market will reach $4.6 billion this year. “With virtually limitless applications to a number of verticals, the wearable technology market represents a huge value proposition to all ecosystem members, from manufacturers to app developers and service report providers,” the company’s recent research report stated.

Among the verticals pouncing on the trend, the healthcare industry has rolled out a number of promising remote patient monitoring technologies, such as a bracelet that monitors a patient’s vitals, a device that determines the severity of a person’s sleep apnea and a wireless sensor that monitors fetal and maternal heart rates. The fitness industry has also embraced the wearable tech trend, introducing the popular Fitbit and Nike’s FuelBand, both of which analyze your daily activity and track your weight. Jawbone, a wristband gadget, tracks how you sleep, exercise and eat.

But Google Glass and the emerging crop of smartwatches have generated the most buzz for wearable tech. The general public still can’t buy Google Glass, augmented reality glasses that the company began testing in April 2012. But developers have rolled out a number of apps, including Path and Evernote integration.

Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014, “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion,” will examine wearable technologies’ functions, application, the competition and possibilities for economic and personal growth.

Why Wearable Tech is all but Fad at Conferences in San Francisco, New York, London, Seoul and Munich

Golden Networking

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking takes Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (www.wearable-computing-conference.com) global: New York City, San Francisco, London, Seoul and Munich, “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”.

New York City, NY, USA (February 16, 2014) — Is wearable technology definitely destined for the great success that its many advocates might suggest? Hundreds of developers and enthusiasts about these technologies will find out at Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”, forums to be held throughout 2014 in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechsanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechlondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologies.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechmunich.eventbrite.com).

As reported by Forbes contributor Georgiana Foster, for real success in the world of technology, entirely new products must be introduced that can create entirely new markets, thus impacting society on a much deeper level. At the moment, a lot of what she is seeing just doesn’t do all that much. And for a trend that includes the word ‘wearable’ in its product description, she claims she honestly wouldn’t be caught dead in a lot of it.

There seems to be a huge gap between what is being made and what the female consumer, in particular, would be willing to purchase, Foster continues on her argument. “Almost everything available is currently too chunky and masculine. The products seem to be aimed at men with a vague hope that (maybe) some women might like them. Let’s think about who, between men and women, is more likely to wear an accessory, or even multiple accessories at the same time to begin with. Surely the answer is transparently obvious.”

Design needs to be a much more important factor when it comes to wearable technology, in order for it to appeal to absolutely everyone, including women. Foster can’t help but wonder if it’s a case of the tech industry simply needing more female designers? But even more crucially, these products need a real use and purpose. In this new digital age, what a brand actually means is just as, if not more, important to the consumer than simply what it does. It doesn’t take a genius to predict that the brand that manages to reach equilibrium between style and substance holds the key to tech world domination, she concludes.

The future is here, with the production of a new generation of technologies such as Google Glass, Apple “iWatch” and Samsung Galaxy Gear, among others, that will allow users to interact with computing devices that are worn by the bearer under, with or on top of clothing. Wearable Computing Conference 2014 will review the latest developments in San Francisco (http://www.wearablecompconsanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearablecompconlondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearablecompcon.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearablecompconseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearablecompconmunich.eventbrite.com).

Google Glass at Wearable Computing Conference 2014 San Francisco, New York, London, Seoul and Munich

Golden Networking

New York City, NY, USA (February 16, 2014) — According to a report by CNN (http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/21/tech/innovation/google-glass-firefighter), Patrick Jackson has developed an app for Google Glass, Google’s experimental head-mounted computer, which feeds important information directly to the eye-line of firefighters in an emergency. When a building is on fire, every second counts for the first responders rushing to the scene. This computer-savvy firefighter in North Carolina is hoping a bit of futuristic wearable technology and clever programming can help save time and lives, themes that will be covered at Golden Networking’s Wearable Computing Conference 2014 (http://www.wearable-computing-conference.com), “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”, forums to be held throughout 2014 in San Francisco (March 18), London (May 29), New York City (July 31), Seoul (September 25) and Munich (November 20).

A self-taught programmer, Jackson first started tinkering with computers when he was 7 and later spent a year studying computer science in college before transferring to the University of North Carolina, Asheville, for an environmental management and policy program. He became a firefighter. About four years ago, he purchased a smartphone and was inspired to start programming again. “Since then I’ve taught myself way more than I ever knew about programming. I’ve developed an Android app, an iPhone app and a Glass app,” Jackson said.

His first project was the Android app Firefighter Log, which routed key information directly to the smartphone, including text messages from dispatchers, streams of emergency radio feeds, and location information for fires and nearby hydrants. Jackson says more than 20,000 people have downloaded the apps. To get his hands on Google Glass, Jackson submitted his idea to Google’s IfIHadGlass competition.

By routing information directly to Google Glass, the app can save firefighters from having to stop what they’re doing in order to reach for a radio, smartphone, tablet or computer. Jackson plans on adding even more useful data in future versions, like information on specific buildings including blueprints, potential building hazards and contact information for owners. A firefighter might be able to say an address out loud or simply look at a building with the Google Glass camera to retrieve information.

Google Glass can also record the first video of a situation when crews arrive. That early documentation will be important to fire investigations down the line. For now, Google Glass isn’t compatible with the oxygen masks firefighters wear on the ground, so the app is more for external personnel. Jackson’s Glass stays behind in the truck.

Other fire departments and researchers also are experimenting with wearable technology, thanks to a recent availability of affordable wearable sensors that can track vitals and environmental factors like air quality and temperature. The Wearable Advanced Sensor Platform, or WASP, can track a firefighter’s location as well as physical data such as heart rate, breathing and activity levels in real time. A Belgium finalist for Microsoft’s Imagine Cup created a system that combines location sensors and augmented reality glasses to help firefighters move around buildings when there is minimal visibility.

The future is here, with the production of a new generation of technologies such as Google Glass, Apple “iWatch” and Samsung Galaxy Gear, among others, that will allow users to interact with computing devices that are worn by the bearer under, with or on top of clothing. Wearable Computing Conference 2014 will review the latest developments in San Francisco (http://www.wearabletechnologiessanfrancisco.eventbrite.com), London (http://www.wearabletechnologieslondon.eventbrite.com), New York City (http://www.wearabletechnologiesnewyorkcity.eventbrite.com), Seoul (http://www.wearabletechnologiesseoul.eventbrite.com) and Munich (http://www.wearabletechnologiesmunich.eventbrite.com).

Marti White is Named Gallery’s New Featured Artist

Light Space & Time

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Arizona artist, Marti White is the gallery’s new featured artist.

Marti White - New Featured Artist

Jupiter, FL, USA (February 15, 2014) — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Arizona artist, Marti White is the gallery’s new featured artist. Marti will now be in the gallery’s Artist Showcase section and be promoted by the gallery for the next 30 days.

Marti White lives, creates and works in Tucson, Arizona. Marti’s artistic interests have taken various forms over more than half a century, beginning with the creative play of a child, the usual art classes in school and college, and then a series of classes with various teachers in various media – pencil, ink, oil, watercolor, acrylic, mixed media and collage. To Marti, watercolor has brought her years of satisfying work as she paints mostly from the natural world – flowers, landscapes, and small wonders of the forest and field.

Marti describes her artistic growth and path since moving to Arizona, “When we moved to the West to retire, I felt that it called for a new artistic path to go along with a new life, in a new place. I found a wonderful teacher in mixed media and embarked on a discovery of painting from the heart. Learning to just let my colors and media take me wherever they pulled me was an exciting new adventure in expression. It seemed that these new paintings came from the center of my very being and were very spiritual in nature. By painting from my gut instead of my head, with no concern for what the paintings meant or whether they looked like something, I was able to free up some inner person that I had never known before.”

Recently, Marti has been exploring something that she likes to call “Apertures” – openings – windows into what is behind the surface of the painting. This series of paintings and collages has grown over several years and she has found it interesting to develop a multi-layered work that seems to contain mysteries to be discovered, pathways into the depth of the painting. It is Marti’s hope that her artwork tells a very personal story to the viewer. Marti’s website is http://www.artbymartiwhite.com.

The Huffington Post Praises Knightmare on Wall Street: Perez’s Book Takes the Reader on a Wild Ride

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global speaker and author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the forthcoming The 11th-Hour Deal, Behind Washington’s Closed Doors During the 16-day Government Shutdown of October 2013.

Knightmare on Wall Street - Cover

New York, NY, USA (February 14, 2014) — Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, was recently reviewed by The Huffington Post which praised its “great historical analysis and insights into what exactly went wrong” with Knight Capital. “Edgar Perez’s book takes the reader on a wild ride. A forensic analysis showed how an old forgotten line of code, like an ex-girlfriend, showed up and turned itself on, which began instantly trading a cascade of orders. By 10:00 am that morning, the Knight Capital IT team was able to stop the program, but it continued finishing trades for the next fifteen minutes. Then they began to assess the damage.

James Grundvig, author of the review and CEO/Founder of CloudNician LLC, concludes: “From a platform launch with a morning cup of coffee, to the brink of bankruptcy in less than an hour, Knightmare is a book that is both a page-turner and modern historical drama with outsized egos, supersized packages, and bailouts from rivals who turn into sharks in a chum feeding frenzy.” The full review can be accessed here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/james-grundvig/book-review-the-meltdown-_b_4719207.html.

Knightmare on Wall Street (http://www.knightmareonwallstreet.com), the fascinating story of Knight Capital, was also the most favorably reviewed Kindle edition book on Amazon in 2013, with an average rating of 5 out of five stars. Knight Capital, founded by Kenneth Pasternak and Walter Raquet in 1995, had seen its fortunes change as U.S. regulators made a series of changes in the structure of financial markets and computers were progressively expanding their share of trading. The Flash Crash, the infamous 1,000 point drop of the DJIA on May 6, 2010 (the largest one-day point decline in history), illustrated how market structure problems could almost instantaneously cascade from one market participant to the rest.

Thomas Joyce, CEO of Knight Capital since 2002 and an unapologetic advocate of electronic trading, had been scornful of those companies that struggled to keep up with ever-changing stock markets. So it was certainly shocking that at 9:30 A.M. on August 1, 2012, right after the markets opened for the day, Knight Capital began issuing an unprecedented number of erroneous orders into the market, due to an error in installing new software. No rogue trader or regulatory change; operational risk was passing the bill to Knight Capital and becoming the biggest risk in the financial markets.

Knight Capital announced later a staggering loss of $440 million. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap.

While Knight Capital was back in the game, its limping recovery quickly prompted hungry competitors to bid for the entire company. On December 19, 2012, the board decided to accept an acquisition proposal from GETCO rather than Virtu Financial. For GETCO, acquiring Knight Capital represented a gigantic fast forward step. For Knight Capital, it was the end of its wild ride as an independent entity.

Revenues from Transparent Conductors Using Silver Nanowires Will Exceed $225 million by 2019

Although negligible at present, the market for transparent conductors (TCs) using silver nanowires and other silver nanomaterials is expected to generate more than $225 million in revenues by 2019. This is according to a report just published by NanoMarkets titled, “Market for Silver Nanomaterials as Transparent Conductors, 2014-2020.”

NanoMarkets

Glen Allen, Virginia (February 14, 2014) — Although negligible at present, the market for transparent conductors (TCs) using silver nanowires and other silver nanomaterials is expected to generate more than $225 million in revenues by 2019. This is according to a report just published by NanoMarkets titled, “Market for Silver Nanomaterials as Transparent Conductors, 2014-2020.”

For more details of the report see: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/markets-for-silver-nanomaterials-as-transparent-conductors.

The new report follows a recent NanoMarkets report titled, “Markets for Metal Meshes as Transparent Conductors-2014” that continued the firm’s coverage of the transparent conductor. See more details at: http://www.nanomarkets.net/market_reports/report/markets-for-metal-meshes-as-transparent-conductors-2014.

About the report:

The growth of the touch-screen market has focused efforts on alternative materials that might make a dent in ITO’s dominance as a transparent conductor. Several years ago the hype was all about carbon nanotubes, but now it appears that nanomaterials made from silver are much more likely to gain market share.

In this report, we assess the current state of the market for transparent conductors made with silver nanowires and silver nanoparticles. This report draws from research gathered from NanoMarkets ongoing industry research program in the area of transparent conductors, but we have also brought the story right up to date based on the latest developments in the sector, showing what the current prospects are for silver nanomaterials in the transparent conductor sector.

This report describes the capabilities and strategies of the leading silver nanomaterial-based transparent conductor suppliers and also discusses commercially interesting developments at other firms. In addition, this report contains an updated granular eight-year forecast of the silver nanomaterial market as a part of the larger transparent conductor market and also forecasts the market in all the key applications where silver nanowires have potential to gain traction.

The all-important application here is touch screens, and that is the most likely place for silver materials considered in this report to succeed. But this report also discusses other applications including LCD and OLED displays, OLED lighting and PV panels. NanoMarkets believes that this report will provide the reader with deep strategic insight into new developments and market forecasts for this important sector of the transparent conductor market.

Among the firms that are discussed in this report are: 3M, Cambrios, Carestream, Cima NanoTech, ClearJet, E Ink, Fujimori Kogyo, G24, Heliatek, JTOUCH, LG, NISSHA, Novaled, Saint-Gobain, Samsung, SeaShell Technology, Sumitomo, Tata Steel, Toray, and TPK Film Solutions.

From the report:

Firms offering silver nanomaterial TCs will have to move beyond their current focus on touch panels, since larger displays do not use touch extensively and touch control may eventually be supplanted by gestural control. One possibility is that silver nanomaterial firms will discover TC markets in the solar panel segment or perhaps OLED lighting. Ultimately, however, silver nanomaterial-based TC firms will have to find new business in the mainstream LCD sector, or they will never generate substantial revenues. There are already small signs that this can happen. For example, Cambrios has worked with Sumitomo to incorporate Cambrios’ ink into LCDs. The LCD market is huge, however, so even a tiny penetration of it by silver nanomaterials can lead to substantial revenues. NanoMarkets thinks that more than half of the revenues for suppliers of silver nanomaterial TCs will come from LCDs by 2019.

Silver nanomaterials face strong competition from many other TC materials but can claim certain advantages. Because nanomaterials form a random network, they don’t have the risk of visible Moiré patterns that can be a concern with the increasingly popular metal meshes. Silver nanomaterial TC manufacturers are already using this as a selling point to distinguish their materials from meshes.

Meanwhile, commercial silver nanomaterials TCs have reduced haze to the point where they look better than ITO. Silver nanomaterials can also be patterned by passivating areas in the ink eliminating a need an index matching layer, which is required when ITO is used. In fact, patterning is becoming a market distinguishing feature for silver nanomaterial TC products and each company has its own approach. 3M, for example, provides pre-patterned films and claims that this enables it to be cost-competitive with ITO because it saves the customer the time and expense of etching and patterning. But some TC suppliers firms believe that having customers pattern the films themselves is an advantage because it provides flexibility to create novel sensor and displays designs.

The Huffington Post’s James Grundvig Discusses Money Book Knightmare on Wall Street with Edgar Perez

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global speaker and author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the forthcoming The 11th-Hour Deal, Behind Washington’s Closed Doors During the 16-day Government Shutdown of October 2013.

Mr. Edgar Perez

New York, NY, USA (February 11, 2014) — James Grundvig, author of the review and CEO/Founder of CloudNician LLC, recently discussed Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, with author Edgar Perez for The Huffington Post. “Perhaps the SEC read his book, because many of its findings can be found in Knightmare on Wall Street. In fact, Perez had addressed the SEC’s Market Abuse Unit in Washington soon after his first book, The Speed Traders, was published.”

Grundvig describes Perez as “a personable, humble, and talented author. His English is breezy, succinct, uses an economy of words to get to the point, and is a pleasure to read. He knows how to hit the right beats to take this true story and give it the drama it deserves, because many lives were ruined because few precautions were taken.” He reveals a number of parties have expressed interest in acquiring the rights to this story. “With the success of Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and The Wolf of Wall Street, no doubt there is an appetite for stories that depict the dramatic intersections of money and egos,” said Perez.

Knightmare on Wall Street (http://www.knightmareonwallstreet.com), the fascinating story of Knight Capital, was also the most favorably reviewed Kindle edition book on Amazon in 2013, with an average rating of 5 out of five stars. Knight Capital, founded by Kenneth Pasternak and Walter Raquet in 1995, had seen its fortunes change as U.S. regulators made a series of changes in the structure of financial markets and computers were progressively expanding their share of trading. The Flash Crash, the infamous 1,000 point drop of the DJIA on May 6, 2010 (the largest one-day point decline in history), illustrated how market structure problems could almost instantaneously cascade from one market participant to the rest. The full review can be accessed here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/james-grundvig/book-review-the-meltdown-_b_4719207.html.

Thomas Joyce, CEO of Knight Capital since 2002 and an unapologetic advocate of electronic trading, had been scornful of those companies that struggled to keep up with ever-changing stock markets. So it was certainly shocking that at 9:30 A.M. on August 1, 2012, right after the markets opened for the day, Knight Capital began issuing an unprecedented number of erroneous orders into the market, due to an error in installing new software. No rogue trader or regulatory change; operational risk was passing the bill to Knight Capital and becoming the biggest risk in the financial markets.

Knight Capital announced later a staggering loss of $440 million. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap.

While Knight Capital was back in the game, its limping recovery quickly prompted hungry competitors to bid for the entire company. On December 19, 2012, the board decided to accept an acquisition proposal from GETCO rather than Virtu Financial. For GETCO, acquiring Knight Capital represented a gigantic fast forward step. For Knight Capital, it was the end of its wild ride as an independent entity.

The Huffington Post’s Book Review: Knightmare on Wall Street is “so Rich in Detail, so Riveting”

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global speaker and author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the forthcoming The 11th-Hour Deal, Behind Washington’s Closed Doors During the 16-day Government Shutdown of October 2013.

Knightmare on Wall Street - Cover

New York, NY, USA (February 10, 2014) — Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, was favorably reviewed by The Huffington Post. “Author Edgar Perez’s book is so rich in detail, so riveting, opening with a brief history of the firm and then following with the dramatic August 1, 2012, morning trading meltdown that it boggled this author’s mind.” James Grundvig, author of the review and CEO/Founder of CloudNician LLC, continued: “With no access to Knight’s management, he compiled all the facts to the trading Titanic, with its many parallel story lines, avenues of deep research, and subplots — which savior turned suitor turned predator — and self-published Knightmare on its one-year anniversary in 2013.” The full review can be accessed here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/james-grundvig/book-review-the-meltdown-_b_4719207.html.

Fully Leased South Florida Logistics Center Building 1 Caps Banner Year for Flagler Global Logistics

A Solidified Leadership Team, the South Florida Logistics Center’s Grand Opening and USDA Approval of FGL’s Innovative New Cold Chain Technology Mark 2013 Milestones.

Flagler Global Logistics Logo

CORAL GABLES, FL (February 10, 2014) – Flagler Global Logistics (“FGL”), a worldwide logistics company providing a full suite of integrated supply chain management services and real estate solutions, has fully leased Building 1 at its new South Florida Logistics Center located adjacent to Miami International Airport, along with more than 600,000 square feet of industrial space at its Flagler Station business park. The brisk leasing activity caps off a landmark year in which the company also welcomed new executive team members, underwent a name rebranding, and introduced a revolutionary cold chain treatment process that was approved by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).

Solidified Leadership Team
In 2013, Flagler Global Logistics appointed respected supply chain industry leader and former Winn-Dixie executive Chris Scott as President and CEO. Scott is leading the dramatic growth of the company’s business in both the United States and Latin America.

The company also added commercial real estate veteran Daniel Marcus as Executive Vice President of Development. Marcus is spearheading the company’s industrial development efforts across its 2,300-acre land portfolio, which can accommodate more than 23 million square feet of industrial development.

Construction Update: New Logistics Center Opens, Receives USDA Certification
Over the past year, Flagler Global Logistics delivered or started construction on more than 1 million square feet of Class-A industrial space at the company’s new intermodal facility-the South Florida Logistics Center-and its flagship Flagler Station business park. In addition, FGL has four other strategic industrial park projects located throughout Florida that are in the pre-development phase.

South Florida Logistics Center officially opened for business with the October inauguration of Building 1-a 170,000-square-foot industrial warehouse facility featuring 60,000 square feet of refrigerated space. The Center’s expansion plans, which call for the development of up to two million square feet of industrial space at the 200-acre site, will compound in 2014-the company has already started construction on two new buildings totaling 380,000 square feet. A little more than a month after opening, the Center received USDA approval for an exclusive, eco-friendly treatment method for produce which helps in preserving the “cold-chain” for fruits, vegetables, extending the product’s shelf life.

“With unparalleled access to air, rail, sea and road transportation, superior third-party logistics support, and scalable real estate solutions, the South Florida Logistics Center is uniquely positioned to become the undisputed trade gateway for the Americas and beyond,” said Scott. “The USDA’s approval of our innovative cold chain treatment is a game-changer in the perishables sector. It provides Latin American exporters a viable alternative to not only bring their produce to supermarket shelves in the United States more efficiently, but maintain a higher quality product with a longer shelf life.”

At Flagler Station, South Florida’s largest business park which boasts its own turnpike interchange and is home to industry leaders such as Ryder, Crowley and FedEx, FGL completed construction on the 171,668-square-foot Building 30 and 171,994-square-foot Building 31. The company also broke ground on Buildings 32 and 34, which combined will add an additional 500,000 square feet plus of prime industrial space.

Industrial Leasing Activity on the Rise

Vice President of Business Development Chris Sutton, SIOR, has led the commercial leasing charge at both the South Florida Logistics Center and Flagler Station, closing nearly 750,000 square feet of industrial lease transactions between the two properties in 2013.

“We’ve experienced strong leasing activity as demand continues to rise, in large part due to our unrivaled portfolio of industrial land with entitlements to build in excess of 20 million square feet of warehouse space throughout Florida,” said Sutton. “Our properties are particularly in high demand thanks to their prime locations with access to Florida’s busiest air and seaports; high-quality, efficient building designs with features including 30′ plus clear ceiling heights; and flexible size ranges that allow us to accommodate tenants of all sizes. We have enough industrial land to accommodate any size build-to-suit requirement, which not many other companies in this marketplace can do.”

At South Florida Logistics Center (SFLC), Flagler Global Logistics, which provides third-party logistics services including its innovative USDA approved cold chain treatment, opened its new 114,187 square foot distribution center. The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company leased 28,682 square feet of space for operations. Flying Food Group also leased 28,676 square feet of space for operations. Both companies were represented by David Albert, SIOR, Devin White, and Andrew Lehrer of CBRE.

At Flagler Station, South Florida’s largest business park, Starboard Cruise Services’ leased 218,673 square feet of space at Building 34, which represented the largest industrial lease transaction of the year in the Medley submarket. The tenant was represented by Charles V. Barton, John Marshall and Matthew Cheezem of Cresa.

Other noteworthy industrial lease transactions at Flagler Station in 2013 include:

– Nipro Medical Corporation leased 86,076 square feet of space at Building 31. The tenant was represented by Ed Lyden of State Street Realty.

– Senator International leased 70,411 square feet of space at Building 30. Gabriel Garcia-Menocal, SIOR and Lucia Custer of NAI Miami represented the tenant.

– TricorBraun leased 63,820 square feet at Building 30. The tenant was represented by Charles V. Barton of Cresa.

– Total Cargo Services leased 56,135 square feet at Building 31. The tenant was represented by Gabriel Garcia-Menocal, SIOR and Lucia Custer of NAI Miami.

– Traffic Tech leased 37,437 square feet at Building 30. The tenant was represented by Michael Torna of Corporate Solutions.

– International Cruise Duty Free leased 29,783 square feet at Building 31. The tenant was represented by Mark Aleman of DiGiacomo Group.

Rebranding to Reflect Global Reach
As the company’s logistics services capabilities and product offerings expand worldwide in step with customer demand, the company rebranded from South Florida Logistics Services to Flagler Global Logistics.

“The rebranding perfectly captures the growing global scale of our end-to-end logistics capacity while linking back to our rich Florida and real estate development heritage established under the recognized Flagler brand,” explained Scott. “Flagler Global Logistics will effect a dramatic shift to redirect the flow of goods from the southeast to the northeast and further solidify South Florida’s position as a strategic gateway for domestic and foreign commercial trade.”

URALCHEM sets a record in Russia for the production of Ammonia

URALCHEM set an absolute record in 2013 for the highest output of ammonia in Russia, with the total output of 2.819 million tonnes. Compared with 2012, production grew by 1.3%. The market situation in the ammonia segment of the global fertilizer market allowed the company to steadily follow its general production strategy.

URALCHEM

Moscow, Russia (February 5, 2014) — URALCHEM set an absolute record in 2013 for the highest output of ammonia in Russia, with the total output of 2.819 million tonnes. Compared with 2012, production grew by 1.3%. The increased production was achieved through stable work of the units during the year, the implementation of projects to increase daily production at the units in the group’s enterprises in the Perm region and in Kirovo-Chepetsk, as well as through shortening repair down-time. The market situation in the ammonia segment of the global fertilizer market allowed the company to steadily follow its general production strategy.

URALCHEM’s production of major commodity products in 2013 comprised 6.039 million tonnes, 0.3% higher than a year earlier. Production of ammonium nitrate and its derivatives was 2.789 million tonnes, an increase by 7% compared to the same period last year. Monitoring the market situation, the company adjusted its production to the existing demand. Production of ammonia was decreased by 3% to 768 thousand tonnes. Urea production decreased by 2% to 1.138 million tonnes. Production of compound fertilizers decreased by 5%, to 581 thousand tonnes. Production of phosphate fertilizers (MAP / DAP) decreased by 13%, to 433 thousand tonnes.

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM, OJSC, commented on the results, “In 2013 URALCHEM cemented its leadership of the nitrogen segment. It retained first place in Russia for the production of ammonia and ammonium nitrate, and the second in the production of urea. At the same time, an unfavourable situation for manufacturers in the global fertilizer market has reduced the output of certain products, primarily phosphorus fertilizers. In difficult market conditions, URALCHEM showed its significant margin of safety and ability to develop. In 2013, we successfully completed our largest logistics project when we opened a terminal in Riga for transhipment of bulk fertilizers with the capacity of up to 2 million tonnes per year. We signed an agreement on cooperation with the world’s top developer and licensor of urea processes, Stamicarbon. At the end of 2013 we acquired a 19.99 % stake in Uralkali, which we see as a strategic investment in one of the most profitable and promising sectors of the fertilizer market.”

ALIPAC Drops Endorsement for US Senator Dean Heller Over His Vote for Amnesty

ALIPAC is updating its endorsements list to help voters in 2014 pick between candidates who support America’s existing immigration and border laws and those who would destroy America’s borders with immigration reform amnesty for illegal aliens.

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

Raleigh, NC, USA (February 5, 2014) — Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) Press@alipac.us / (866) 703-0864

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is updating its endorsements list to help voters in 2014 pick between candidates who support America’s existing immigration and border laws and those who would destroy America’s borders with immigration reform amnesty for illegal aliens.

ALIPAC’s prior endorsement of Senator Dean Heller is being rescinded and Heller is being added to the “Senate Traitors” list for targeting for removal from office in his next election because Heller voted for the Senate Amnesty bill (S 744) in 2013, worked with corrupt Senator Harry Reid to insert pork and kickbacks for casinos into the bill, and allowed his legislative grades at NumbersUSA to drop from an A+ to a C-.

“Senator Heller looks like one of those sellouts who sold his soul to afford the expenses of moving up to the Senate from the US House,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Dean Heller is clearly on the payroll of the illegal alien hiring casinos and hotels in Vegas and he is now selling out all Americans by supporting amnesty for illegal aliens legislation. No wonder so many illegal aliens are feloniously voting in US elections in Las Vegas without repercussions when both US Senators for Nevada are in the bag for organized crime!”

ALIPAC is America’s largest Political Action Committee addressing the issues of illegal immigration and immigration reform amnesty for illegals. Founded on 9/11 of 2004 in honor of the victims of 9/11 who perished due to the inadequate enforcement of America’s immigration and border laws, ALIPAC currently endorses more than 130 incumbent members of Congress.

Many challengers are being added to ALIPAC’s endorsements as federal candidate surveys are returned. ALIPAC has made a special priority of educating GOP Primary voters and potential candidates about the 35 Republicans in the US House and several in the Senate, including Dean Heller, who are supporting Obama’s push for amnesty for illegal aliens.

ALIPAC is now banned from national television networks that also support amnesty for illegal aliens, such as Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, etc… because those networks do not want the following comments to be aired.

“If Congress and the Senate rubber stamp Obama’s unlawful and unConstitutional amnesty decrees for illegal aliens by passing a bill, then the borders of the United States will be destroyed forevermore!” warns William Gheen. “More than 80% of Americans are crying out for the borders to be secured and all states to be protected from this invasion as the Constitution requires. Such an honorable goal will become politically impossible if 20 million illegals are allowed to stay and pursue a path to citizenship and voting rights!”

For more information about which federal candidates support America’s existing immigration laws and which ones are trying to destroy those laws like Dean Heller, please visit http://www.alipac.us.

Parallel Infrastructure Offers New Fiber Optic Network along Florida’s East Coast, from Miami to Jacksonville

New Superhighway Promises Broader Capacity and Faster Data Transmission.

Parallel Infrastructure Logo

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (February 3, 2014) — Parallel Infrastructure LLC, a leading right-of-way (ROW) land management and communications infrastructure development company, today announced it is offering a new fiber optic network along its right-of-way (ROW) corridor that runs along Florida’s east coast from Miami to Jacksonville. These new fiber strands will offer increased speed and capacity and will be operational by the end of the year.

According to Parallel Infrastructure President and CEO, Frank Chechile, the company is already receiving interest from potential customers who want to take advantage of this new broadband infrastructure. “It’s been more than a decade since the last fiber cables were installed along this 351-mile corridor,” Chechile commented. “These new, low-latency strands can transfer large amounts of data faster, and are in high demand.”

The nature of the new, state-of-the art fiber infrastructure will allow companies to increase their capacity to support their needs without incurring additional operational expenses for each incremental bit transmitted. The network system will serve companies such as telephone and wireless carriers, utility companies, cable companies, data centers, municipalities, and other educational and healthcare businesses that transmit large amounts of data on a regular basis. Additionally, the fiber will be used to support the needs of All Aboard Florida, the country’s first privately owned and operated intercity passenger rail that will provide service along Florida’s east coast.

“There are added economic benefits to expanding Florida’s broadband infrastructure,” added Chechile. “This project will not only create more jobs locally, but thanks to Parallel Infrastructure’s ability to combine two of the most sought-after assets in telecom-contiguous land and dark fiber-we are better positioned to attract more high-tech companies to the region and fuel the growth of existing companies.”

Parallel Infrastructure manages a total of 1,700 miles of ROW corridor across 22 states on behalf of a prestigious list of railroad landowners. According to Chechile, the company is investigating plans to construct similar fiber optic networks along these routes over the next 24 months.
