KastKing™ Launches Fundraising Program for Breast Cancer Awareness

Eposeidon Logo

KastKing™ will donate all profits from the sale of KastKing™ Pink Braided Fishing Line during October to Breast Cancer Research and reward creative talents.

The Think Pink Challenge - Reel Man Fish Pink

Hempstead, Long Island, NY (September 30, 2014) — During the month of October KastKing™ is donating 100% of profits from KastKing™ Pink Braided Fishing Line (http://www.eposeidon.com/braid-fishing-line) to breast cancer research. The Reel Men Fish Pink program challenges men to “spool it pink,” and initiate conversations with their male friends about supporting the women in their lives to be screened for breast cancer. The KastKing™ fundraising program begins October 1 and runs until October 31, 2014.

KastKing Pink Braided Fishing Line

“We are reaching out to a few in the fishing community to spool up their fishing reels with pink braided line and have them use their social media channels to in turn challenge three or more others to do the same,” says Eposeidon Inc.’s Marketing Director Tom Gahan. “We’d like to see how big this fundraising effort can get. We feel that equally important to raising money is encouraging guys to be supportive of their gal’s health care issues and talking with them about getting a mammogram.” Eposeidon, Inc. is the parent company of KastKing™ brands. Braided fishing line is used for many fishing techniques in saltwater and freshwater. Pink is the official color for breast cancer awareness in October.

Eposeidon will select five of the most creative, educational, or touching YouTube videos or Facebook stories that challenge others to participate. A dozen roses will be sent on behalf of the winners to the most important woman in their life.

A woman currently living in the U.S. has a 12 percent, or 1 in 8, lifetime risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer – compared to a 1 in 11 risk in the 1970s. Women diagnosed at early stages of breast cancer have a higher five-year relative survival rate. According to the American Cancer Society, the five-year relative survival ranges from 99 percent for localized disease (confined to the breast) to 25 percent for distant-stage disease (spread to other organs).

The money being donated will go towards breast cancer research and to help women without health insurance to get free mammogram.

“With so many issues out there, we know that it’s hard for some people to donate their time and creative talents. We realize that many will take part out of their own goodness, but we wanted to keep it interesting and spur people to action,” says Tate Qui, CEO Eposeidon. “A lot of people doing a little bit can make a big difference. We are proud to support issues such as breast cancer awareness and we are ready to jump in and do our part. Our Reel Men Fish Pink challenge with our pink braided fishing line is one of many other support programs we will put forward in the future.”

Eposeidon Introduces New Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reel

Eposeidon Logo

Heavy duty high-tech conventional reel with unique features for offshore fishing is now available only through Eposeidon for the US and Canadian markets.

Ecooda Ocean Master Conventional Reel

Hempstead, Long Island, NY (September 25, 2014) — Eposeidon, Inc., the North American distributor of Ecooda fishing reels, has introduced the Ecooda Ocean Master Conventional Reel.

A unique feature of the Ecooda Ocean Master (EOM) is its unique patented double level-wind support shafts that gives outstanding stability and unwavering pressure on retrieve. Ecooda Ocean Masters also have a patented double support bearing system on its stainless steel main shaft that adds superior strength and longevity to the reels.

Ecooda Ocean Master Conventional Reel 2

Available in left and right handed models, all Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reels feature carbon fiber drags for smooth operation and performance needed to fight big game fish. EOM 30’s have 33 lbs. (15 kg.) of drag and EOM 50’s produce 44 lbs. (20 kg.) of drag. It is an exceptional amount of drag power for reels in that class size. Ocean Masters have 7 shielded stainless steel ball bearings (patented double bearing support on the main shaft), precision machined brass gears and stainless steel components for maximum strength and durability, 6.2:1 gear ratios, ceramic line-guide inserts, and a reel-foot locking plate to keep the reel securely clamped to the rod shaft while battling big fish. Its frame is constructed from high-modulus graphite for a higher stiffness to weight ratio.

“Performance combined with endurance is the key,” says Eposeidon’s CEO Tate Cui. “The available drag pressure is more than double the available drag on other reels in that class. In testing this spring it boated a 90 pound fish off the coast of Japan without effort. Everything in the reel is stainless steel, brass, or graphite; all of which withstand the effects of seawater. It’s built for survival.”

“The Ecooda Ocean Master reels put us squarely in the conventional reel arena for big game fish. You can’t beat that many features and the benefits for the price,” says Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon. “We’ve had exceptional success with other Ecooda models based on their price, quality, and performance. We predict the same level of success with the Ocean Master and for the new smaller round baitcaster model the Ecooda Tiro Caster.”

Ecooda Ocean Master Fishing Reel‘s retail pricing begins in the $120 range. Eposeidon offers free shipping on orders over $20.

Stay Away from Alibaba and the Forty Institutions, says Knightmare on Wall Street Author Edgar Perez

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global expert, author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools”.

The Speed Traders Workshop Logo

New York, NY, USA (September 19, 2014) — A few months ago, markets witnessed the IPO of Weibo, China’s Twitter-like microblogging service; back then, Mr. Edgar Perez, course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, proclaimed the firm’s best days were still ahead. With 129 million monthly active users, 300 million registered users and 400,000 brand pages, Weibo remained the strongest social media service for the biggest country in the world. Following their successful April debut, Chairman Charles Chao said that in retrospect their IPO, at $17, was priced too low. However, that proved beneficial for those investors who decided to hold; they are still able to sell at $21.

Demand for Alibaba’s shares appears strong ahead of its expected IPO this Friday. Alibaba said it planned to price its shares at $68, an increased level that would give it a valuation of about $165 billion. There is no doubt the company is a global leader in the e-commerce sphere handling a number of transactions higher than Amazon and eBay combined. However, is that still a good price for retail investors considering the bump that will follow the beginning of trading?

Further clouding the picture, it has been revealed that a number of early investors in Alibaba would be able to sell more than $8 billion worth of shares on the day the Chinese e-commerce company goes public. As The Wall Street Journal reports, insiders and other investors in companies staging initial public offerings are generally required to hold on to shares for several months, in “lockup” arrangements banks design to help protect the stock’s price in its early days. More than 40 investment firms have asked for more than $1 billion.

However, in Alibaba’s case, a number of shares equal to about a third of what could be sold in the deal aren’t covered by such restrictions, according to the company’s public filings. Mr. Perez is questioning why would insiders, the people who are expected to know the company upside down, want to rush to unload their shares if BABA promises to be such a great investment.

Mr. Perez concludes: “Alibaba’s high-profile deal, which could raise as much as $25 billion and potentially be the biggest in history, is not for retail investors. It will probably hit the $100 level on its first day, yet, that will only benefit insiders (who might sell immediately) and well-informed institutional investors (hedge funds and sovereign wealth-funds that might want to hold long-term). Potentially buying BABA at $100 is a scary proposition for retails investors who would rather think of less well-known firms that stand to benefit from the interest generated by juggernaut Alibaba in the ever-growing e-commerce arena.”

Mr. Perez is course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools”, seminar that covers the latest research currently available and reveals how high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil. The “flash crash”, the suspended BATS IPO, the botched Facebook IPO, Knight Capital’s trading malfunction and Nasdaq’s Flash Freeze are just a few of the milestones in the history of high-frequency trading that will be dissected with participants.

Mr. Perez is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert and speaker in the specialized areas of algorithmic and high-frequency trading. He is the author of The Speed Traders, published in English, Chinese and Bahasa Indonesia, and Knightmare on Wall Street. He contributes to The New York Times, UltraHighFrequencyTrading.com and China’s International Finance News and Sina Finance.

Hero Singer Mariah Carey and The Speed Traders Author Edgar Perez to Present in Singapore on October

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global expert, author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools”.

The Speed Traders Workshop Logo

New York, NY, USA (September 19, 2014) — October seems to bring a lot of surprises for citizens of the Lion City. On October 24, 44-year-old Mariah Carey will perform in Singapore; she has been in showbiz for more than 25 years and has sold more than 220 million albums. Just the day before, October 23, 40-year-old author Edgar Perez will present The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools”.

In an interview with Channel News Asia, Carey revealed the secret to longevity in the music business. It is her ability to “transcend trends” and having a whole lot of “commitment”, she said. “Longevity is something that is very difficult to obtain in this business because a lot of the music business, particularly now, is about trends. And a trend is a trend because it lasts for a moment and then it’s gone.”

“There are people who transcend trends and typically they are the people who have a catalogue of songs that people love or a voice that people have learnt to love over the years, that’s just like embedded in people’s ears, brains and hearts like a soundtrack to people’s lives. I really think that we never know who’s going to have what type of longevity. It’s really about your commitment to the music and your commitment to your fans and yourself and how much you are willing to give up. There are really a lot of talented people out there, it just depends on how much they want it.”

Perez’s The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com) will cover the latest research currently available and reveals how high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil. The “flash crash”, the suspended BATS IPO, the botched Facebook IPO, Knight Capital’s trading malfunction and Nasdaq’s Flash Freeze are just a few of the milestones in the history of high-frequency trading that will be dissected with participants coming from all corners of the financial services landscape.

Tamara Campeau is Gallery’s New Featured Artist

Light Space & Time

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Canadian wildlife artist Tamara Campeau is the gallery’s newest featured artist.

Tamara Campeau - Artist Showcase

Jupiter, FL, USA (September 15, 2014) — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Canadian wildlife artist Tamara Campeau is the gallery’s newest featured artist. Tamara will now be featured and be widely promoted by the gallery.

Tamara Campeau was originally born in the sunshine state of Florida. Not too long after she immigrated to Quebec, Canada with her mother. What Tamara loved most in life was animals and art. Till this day, these two loves are still very present in her life.

Tamara attained a technical degree in Illustration & Design in 2008. During and following her college studies Tamara would do commissioned paintings which consisted mostly of dogs, cats and portraiture of people. In terms, of personal work, Tamara enjoys depicting nature’s greatest creation, wildlife. In general she is very observant of everyday life where then she tries to incorporate this in her work.

She has been painting for 10 years, at first in acrylic, but she has now been painting primarily in oil for the past seven years. When bringing life to her creations she emphasizes detail and textures to draw on the emotions of her audience through the eyes of her subjects. Tamara considers herself to be a self-taught painter because throughout her studies, painting was not really taught to the students and even then it was only in acrylic.

Tamara’s artworks has achieved special recognition and awards of merit from international art gallery contests. Tamara inspiration is fuelled by the work of Canadian artist Robert Bateman and illustrator David Colman. Her website: http://www.tcampeaupaulson.com.

Smart Regulation Crucial for Growth of High-frequency Trading in Singapore, says Expert Edgar Perez

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global expert, author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools”.

The Speed Traders Workshop Logo

New York, NY, USA (September 16, 2014) — Wall Street’s biggest high-frequency trading spokespeople are taking more fire lately from proactive regulators seeking to eliminate “abuses” in the controversial HFT markets. For instance, one HFT group that executes stock orders on high-speed platforms is trying to enlist experienced Washington players to defend its practices in the corridors of power.

Regulators are circling the wagons indeed. BATS Global Markets is said to be nearing a regulatory settlement over allegations it unfairly favored certain high-speed customers. This follows the abrupt departure last month of its CEO, Bill O’Brien, of CNBC fame. At the same time, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and the SEC are pressing forward as some of the biggest dark-pool operators, including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse and Barclays, are caught in the crossfire.

According to Mr. Edgar Perez, sophisticated regulation is necessary in Asia to avoid controversies as the ones mentioned above. Mr. Perez is the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools” (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com). This seminar covers the latest research currently available and reveals how high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil. The “flash crash”, the suspended BATS IPO, the botched Facebook IPO, Knight Capital’s trading malfunction and Nasdaq’s Flash Freeze are just a few of the milestones in the history of high-frequency trading that will be dissected with participants.

Knightmare on Wall Street, the fascinating story of Knight Capital put together by course director Edgar Perez, was the most favorably reviewed Kindle edition book on Amazon in 2013, with an average rating of 5 out of five stars. Knight Capital 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 notorious 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.

Mr. Perez is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert and speaker in the specialized areas of algorithmic and high-frequency trading. He is also author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, published in English, Chinese and Bahasa Indonesia.

T5 Begins Construction on Silicon Forest’s Most Advanced Wholesale Colocation Data Center to Accommodate Growing Demand for Business-critical Computing in the Pacific Northwest.

Hillsboro, OR, USA (September 16, 2014) — T5 Data Centers™, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments for any enterprise, today announced that the company has broken ground on T5@Portland, a two building wholesale colocation data center campus in suburban Portland. The company is also pleased to announce that a Fortune 100 company has already leased T5@Portland’s first building.

T5@Portland is the first purpose-built, state-of-the-art data center campus to be constructed in the Silicon Forest. The new data center campus will consist of two separate buildings; one of which has already been pre-leased. The second building will be a 110,000 square foot, nine (9) critical megawatt data center and pre-leasing is already underway for this facility. The T5@Portland data centers should be ready for occupancy in early summer 2015.

Like T5’s entire portfolio of data centers, T5@Portland’s facilities are purpose-built and offer server-ready IT solutions capable of housing multiple independent data center tenants. T5@Portland is being constructed to LEED Silver specification, and will take advantage of the coastal Pacific Northwest climate to offset cooling costs and maximize power usage effectiveness (PUE) of the data centers. The T5@Portland data centers will also have extremely reliable power from two redundant power feeds into the facility and are being designed as high-performance, highly efficient, seismic secure, purpose-built data centers.

“We have built a national reputation for delivering high-quality data centers that provide superior reliability,” said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Marketing Officer for T5 Data Centers, “and this project is another great example of that philosophy. T5@Portland meets all the criteria that enterprise customers are looking for – purpose built performance, high resiliency and low cost. T5’s strategy is to continue to build the best data centers in the best locations.”

In addition to its technical specification, T5@Portland tenants will be able to take advantage of the favorable business and economic climate of Oregon, and specifically the City of Hillsboro. The area offers a number of economic incentives, including tax exemptions to stimulate e-commerce and technology companies, including significant sales and property tax benefits. With the combination of low-cost infrastructure, attractive economic incentives, flexible control over customer operational space, and guaranteed power, T5@Portland promises to be one of the most attractive corporate data center colocation options in the Pacific Northwest.

T5@Portland is one of seven sites across the United States within the T5 Data Centers portfolio, all designed with the same attention to reliability and service. Each data center is purpose-built to give customers total control of their own dedicated data hall so T5’s customers can better manage their Total Cost of Occupancy.

Chinese E-commerce Juggernaut Alibaba Set to Boost IPO Price Despite High-frequency Trading Concerns

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global expert, author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools”.

New York, NY, USA (September 16, 2014) — China’s biggest e-commerce company plans to increase the top end of a marketed price range to just below $70, from $66 previously. According to Reuters, Alibaba worried about Nasdaq’s ability to handle their $21 billion IPO, since the exchange botched Facebook’s market debut two years ago. Nasdaq tried to persuade Alibaba that it had fixed the problem but it is not clear whether they were swayed. One source said that Alibaba eventually was satisfied that Nasdaq had solved the issue and chose NYSE because its overall pitch was better. Another said Nasdaq executives believed that Alibaba decided that the possibility of a botched IPO, however small, outweighed the possible benefits of being in the index.

Nasdaq systems buckled under the tremendous volume of orders on the first day of trading in Facebook’s shares in 2012, leading to hours of delay. In its current presentation to Alibaba, Nasdaq detailed the steps it had taken to prevent another Facebook-style glitch said. The exchange has said it responded to Facebook by putting extra safeguards in place, creating new positions within the company to improve communications with the industry and regulators when errors occur, and establishing an engineering team to monitor and analyze daily performance.

At the end, Alibaba chose NYSE; according to Mr. Edgar Perez, course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, “How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets ‘RIGGED’ by Wall Street’s ‘Flash Boys’, High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools”, that is the reason why Alibaba shouldn’t worry about high-frequency trading, as NYSE systems have demonstrated time-tested resilience in the IPO process.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), covers the latest research currently available and reveals how high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil.

Solar Power World Ranks Rosendin Electric Number 3 in List of Top 400 Solar Contractors

Rosendin Electric Continues to Rise in the Annual Rankings of the Best Solar Contractors in North America.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, Calif. (September 13, 2014) — Rosendin Electric, the nation’s largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, has earned the third place ranking in Solar Power World’s list of the Top 400 Solar Contractors in North America. The publication also ranked Rosendin Electric number one among the top 100 solar contractors in California; number two among the top 50 solar specialists in engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC); and number three among the top 25 utility solar contractors.

Solar Power World compiles an annual list that ranks solar contractors throughout North America based on a variety of criteria, including number of megawatts installed for the year and specific markets served (e.g. utility, residential, or commercial). To date, Rosendin Electric installed solar systems capable of generating 478 megawatts (MW) to make the company number three in North America.

In congratulating Rosendin Electric, Frank Andorka, Editorial Director of Solar Power World, wrote, “Only a tiny fraction of the nation’s companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent excellence, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years. This achievement truly puts you in rarified company.”

Rosendin Electric’s Solar Division specializes in installing utility-grade and distributed generation (DG) solar projects. The company designs and builds mid- to large-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, including substation design and installation, prefabrication, energy storage systems, and ancillary systems. Rosendin Electric’s Solar Division has installed PC systems for commercial, hospitals, schools, universities, and government facilities as well as utility-grade solar farms. Project sizes range from 100 kW to more than 200 MW. And Rosendin Electric performs more than 85 percent of its own EPC, which mitigates risk for investors and makes contracts more viable for financing since the company maintains total control over solar project deliverables.

“Ranking number three out of the top 400 North American contractors is a real milestone for our solar group,” said David Lincoln, Director of Solar Operations for Rosendin Electric. “We are now installing utility-grade solar systems across North America, as well as in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Our growing reputation and EPC capabilities continue to bring in new clients who see the value of having Rosendin Electric on their team.”

About Rosendin Electric

Rosendin Electric, Inc., headquartered in San Jose, California, is an employee-owned electrical engineering, power and communications provider and is the largest privately held electrical contractor in the United States. With over 5,000 employees and experience worldwide, Rosendin Electric has built upon a 95-year reputation for quality design and installations.

The Think Pink Challenge; Reel Men Fish Pink

Eposeidon LogoEposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. kicks off a campaign to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.

Hempstead, Long Island, NY (September 9, 2014) — Eposeidon, Inc.’s KastKing Division, the makers of high quality affordable braided fishing line, has announced a campaign to promote awareness and raise funds for breast cancer research and early detection.

KastKing Pink Braided Fishing LineKastKing will donate all net profits from every sale of their KastKing Pink Braided Fishing Line in all sizes through their website http://www.eposeidon.com during the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink is the official color for breast cancer awareness.

KastKing’s will track all purchases of their KastKing Pink Braided Fishing Line through their website http://www.eposeidon.com. At the end of October the amount will be donated to fund breast cancer research. The company offers free shipping on orders over $20.

KastKing’s program will be promoted through Social Media with a Think Pink Challenge. The campaign slogan is — “The Think Pink Challenge; Reel Men Fish Pink.” Members of Team Eposeidon, the company’s angler support staff, which has male and female members, will publicly challenge at least 3 other anglers to “Spool it with Pink” and encourage them to challenge others either through Youtube or Facebook posts, or both. Eposeidon’s Think Pink Challenge will begin ramping up in September, begin October 1st and run through October 31. Eposeidon wants to encourage men to support the women in their lives with early detection through mammograms and doctor’s visits.

According to breastcancer.org, “Mammograms don’t prevent breast cancer, but they can save lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible. For example, mammograms have been shown to lower the risk of dying from breast cancer by 35% in women over the age of 50.”

“Many lives and families have been touched by breast cancer,” says Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon. “This is our chance to reach out to the angling community, which mostly consists of men, to make a difference. The campaign encourages male anglers to ‘man up’ and load their fishing reels with pink fishing line for a great cause. We’re hoping women persuade their guys to ‘Fish Pink’ and in turn, men will support and encourage other women in their lives to have a mammogram and look after their health and inspire their male friends to also spool up with pink line.”

Pink fishing line has a practical feature. It becomes “invisible” at relatively shallow depths as pink is in the red spectrum, which is the first color to disappear in the water column. KastKing braided lines are offered in 10 lb. through 150 lb. test.

“October, breast cancer awareness month, also marks the beginning of the traditional holiday shopping season, says Eposeidon’s CEO Tate Cui. “Some may wish to purchase pink line as a gift during October and carry the awareness forward to next season. Next spring it may generate some conversations about how people can help with breast cancer, encourage their family members to be tested, or increase their awareness or donate. We hope to reach thousands of anglers. We are proud to support breast cancer research.”

Skybox Datacenters and T5 Facilities Management Partner to Bring Top Tier Data Center Operations to Skybox Houston One

Skybox Datacenters Teams with T5 Facilities Management to Launch Turnkey Data Center Services to Companies in the Houston Energy Corridor.

Through this strategic partnership, Skybox will offer move-in ready wholesale data centers in mid-market locations operated by the same team that operates T5 Data Centers’™ national portfolio of wholesale data centers. Construction on the first data center initiative, Skybox Houston One, is expected to be completed in November and it will be commissioned in January 2015.

Skybox Datacenters recently broke ground on its Skybox Houston One facility, an 86,960-square-foot purpose-built data center with four independent data halls; the first wholesale data center to serve the Houston Energy Corridor.

Under the partnership agreement, Skybox will serve as landlord and T5FM will provide facilities support and operations management for Skybox Houston One.

“Skybox and T5 have very similar philosophies as to how to best serve data center customers, and through this partnership we can bring T5’s facilities management expertise to new customers in mid-market regions,” said Mike Casey, COO of T5. “The expertise and protocols that existing T5 customers rely on will adapt quite well to Skybox’s clientele.”

T5FM offers comprehensive on-site data center management; the same comprehensive facilities management that T5 uses in its data centers in Atlanta, Colorado, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, North Carolina, and Portland. T5FM will apply the same kind of best practices used in all of T5’s data centers, including policies and procedures to mitigate risk and eliminate operational concerns with an emphasis on safety, training, and communications.

“The strategic partnership between Skybox Datacenters and T5FM will bring the best data center management expertise available to our customers,” said Rob Morris, Managing Partner, Skybox Datacenters. “This partnership allows us to focus on our core development business while knowing that the T5FM team will keep operations running smoothly. It’s a great marriage.”

Using this wholesale data center business model, Skybox will lease self-contained data center halls to customers, each with its own dedicated mechanical and electrical infrastructure, so customers retain total operational control. An on-site T5FM team will provide infrastructure support. Skybox Houston One is specifically designed to cater to the needs of oil and gas, healthcare, and other large corporations in the region to meet their business-critical, high-performance, ultra low latency computing needs.

Golden Networking

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings back Wearable Technology Conference 2014 (www.wearable-technology-conference.com) to New York City, “How Wearable Technologies are Revolutionizing Mobile Wireless Internet, Healthcare and Fashion”.

Wearable Technology Conference 2014

New York, NY, USA (September 2, 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.

Master Limited Partnerships Sponsors and Investors Join MLP Investing Conference 2014 New York City

Golden Networking

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings MLP Investing Conference 2014 (www.mlpinvestingconference.com) to New York City, “How the Kinder Morgan Deal will usher in a Golden Age for MLPs Tapping into the Great American Energy Boom”.

MLP Investing Conference 2014

New York, NY, USA (September 2, 2014) — The Great American Energy Boom that has allowed access to seas of shale oil and gas is now at the forefront of America’s economic recovery and provides the best reason to be optimistic about the United States economic, energy, and geopolitical future. To accomplish these worthy goals, the country requires thousands of storage tanks and miles of new pipelines which are expected to ring $640 billion through 2035.

Golden Networking’s MLP Investing Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.mlpinvestingconference.com), “How the Kinder Morgan Deal will usher in a Golden Age for MLPs Tapping into the Great American Energy Boom”, will review the current landscape for MLPs and discuss why the next decade should be the golden years of energy infrastructure investing. MLPs, sponsors, and investors will analyze recent developments and future opportunities and challenges for this asset class.

Topics that MLP Investing Conference 2014 will discuss include:
• The REIT syndrome: increasing institutional ownership in the MLP asset class
• The biggest risk: what about if oil prices fell to $80 a barrel and stayed there
• Implications of Kinder Morgan Inc.’s deal to consolidate its energy infrastructure MLPs
• Barbarians at the gate: a new round of deal making for the pipeline industry

How the Kinder Morgan Deal will usher in a Golden Age for MLPs in the Great American Energy Boom

New York, NY, USA (September 2, 2014) — Golden Networking’s MLP Investing Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.mlpinvestingconference.com), “How the Kinder Morgan Deal will usher in a Golden Age for MLPs Tapping into the Great American Energy Boom”, will review the current landscape for MLPs and discuss why the next decade should be the golden years of energy infrastructure investing. MLPs, sponsors, and investors will analyze recent developments and future opportunities and challenges for this asset class.

According to Barron’s, energy-transport companies like Kinder Morgan have historically put their pipeline assets into MLPs to garner higher valuations. MLPs, which pass their profits directly to investors, untaxed, typically trade at big premiums to income-producing securities like utilities, telecom companies, and cable-TV operators. Kinder Morgan’s new strategy reverses the MLP advantage, raising the question of how the stock should now be valued. The company, headed by co-founder and CEO Rich Kinder, would like investors to value it based on its lofty dividend yield.

Kinder Morgan Inc.’s recent $70 billion consolidation of its Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) runs counter to the industry trend of spinning off pipelines and oil terminals into tax-advantaged partnerships that funnel cash to investors. However, by simplifying its empire’s corporate structure, Kinder is lowering borrowing costs, freeing up cash for bigger dividend payouts and unifying the company under a single stock that can be used as currency to buy competitors focused already on building the energy infrastructure of the future.

The move signals a new round of deal making for the pipeline industry, which has seen growth rocket in the past five years as the boom has spread across North America. Potential acquisition targets for firms such as Kinder, Enterprise and Energy Transfer Partners now include more than 120 energy MLPs that have a combined enterprise value of $900 billion. That is set to grow rapidly as less volatile cash payouts that beat debt yields are sought and massive new investments are made in the burgeoning oil and gas fields of Texas, North Dakota and Pennsylvania.

• The REIT syndrome: increasing institutional ownership in the MLP asset class
• The biggest risk: what about if oil prices fell to $80 a barrel and stayed there
