Artist Crystal Orlando Solo Show at Jackson Hole Art Event

Crystal Orlando

Nationally acclaimed graphite artist’s exhibit should be your first stop on the Jackson, Wyoming Art Walk in June.

Jackson, WY, USA (April 15, 2015) — Crystal Orlando, considered by many to be one of the top graphite artists in the US today, will be taking her work to Jackson Hole, WY for the month of June with an artist reception taking place during the Jackson Hole Gallery Association art walk. Jackson Hole is considered to be one of the top art destinations in the country.

Crystal is regarded as the Master of Emotion with a pencil where she is able to create feeling, depth and weight to her drawings. Her wildlife art is among the best.

“I am so thrilled to be featured at such a prestigious event. As an artist, it is so rewarding when other people appreciate the hard work that goes into each of my drawings.” Orlando said.

Crystal’s noted works include the powerful “Dance With Me” a drawing of a buffalo photographed nearby in Yellowstone. She and her husband Jason were able to get within a few feet of the massive animal. The detail in her drawing captures every hair on the buffalo’s body and emanates the power and weight of the magnificent creature.

“Capturing emotion in animals is very difficult yet each of them show emotion quite readily. You can find it in their posture and their eyes. One must especially be careful and read the signs quickly when getting too close to wildlife. It can be very dangerous but the adrenalin rush is like no other.” Noted Orlando.

You can view and purchase Orlando’s new work at Cowboy Coffee, 125 N. Cache, Jackson, WY during the month of June 2015. Make Crystal Orlando’s Solo Show “UNDEFEATED” (sponsored by Ringhoz Gallery) your first stop during the art walk on June 18th from 5pm – 8pm, for an artist reception were Crystal will be on hand to answer questions and visit with you.

Engage PEO Announces New Suite of Streamlined Health Benefit Plan Solutions

The Simple Business Solutions offering is part of a fully integrated system designed to meet the unique needs of companies with fewer than 50 insured employees.

Engage PEO Logo

Fort Lauderdale, Fla., (April 13, 2015) — Engage PEO, a leading professional employer organization providing HR outsourcing solutions to small and mid-sized businesses across the U.S., has developed a competitive suite of employer group benefit programs tailored to meet the unique and challenging needs of businesses with 10 to 49 employees. Engage Simple Business Solutions provides access to a select portfolio of medical plans that all meet the minimum individual mandate requirements of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). A suite of voluntary benefit products are also part of the mix, giving companies of all sizes the ability to offer their employees a variety of supplemental plans to fit individual needs, from dental and vision plans to life insurance and disability coverage and tax advantaged flexible spending and health savings programs.

“As HR advisors, it is our job to continuously provide viable options to our clients and help them make smart choices, especially when it comes to health benefits and compliance,” says Dorothy Miraglia King, executive vice president of Engage. “Some of our clients and their employees, however, can sometimes be overwhelmed when offered too many choices or options that are more suitable for larger employers. That’s why our Simple Business Solutions suite is streamlined and designed to be flexible and affordable.”

Through this offering, Engage’s clients can select among three competitively priced medical plans provided by Aetna, plus an attractive package of voluntary benefits to offer employees, all delivered through a convenient, paperless online enrollment process. Engage Simple Business Solutions complements a more robust portfolio of ACA-compliant benefit plans and products geared to employers of 50 or more employees, provided via a private Engage Corporate Exchange.

“It is critically important for employers with fewer than 50 employees to realize that once they offer health benefits to their employees, they turn on the ACA switch,” said Jay Starkman, chief executive officer of Engage. “That means that they are subject to the same Affordable Care Act mandates imposed on larger employers. Engage manages all of the complex ACA compliance issues for our clients no matter how many employees they have – that is a huge load off of their shoulders.”

All Engage benefit plan solutions are offered as part of a comprehensive set of human resources services for business that include payroll, workers’ compensation, safety, tax and HR compliance delivered by dedicated HR field managers – all of whom are lawyers – in addition to client service and benefits specialists.

“What is clear is that all businesses are eager to find smart, simple and efficient tools to navigate the evolving regulatory maze of the Affordable Care Act,” Starkman added. “As a full service PEO, Engage can meet that demand for every segment of the business community.”

Technology Filled Live Liner Fishing Reel Introduced

Maelstrom bait runner reels include features that are not available elsewhere in a higher price range.

Eposeidon Logo

Garden City, Long Island, NY (April 11, 2015) — Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. (http://www.eposeidon.com) has announced the release of its newest fishing tackle product, the Ecooda Maelstrom bait runner spinning reel.

The Ecooda Maelstrom spinning reel has classic front and rear drag functions that are often referred to as bait runner or bait feeder style spinning reels.

Named after powerful swirling ocean vortexes that create havoc in the water, the Maelstrom has been designed with key features that are important to anglers. It was created by anglers for anglers through direct input from Team Eposeidon, Eposeidon’s Angler Consultant Staff for the North American market, which resulted in the reel’s technology loaded design.

“We took a look at what was out in the market for bait runner reels and realized we could build a reel with more features than our competition’s upper end models while keeping the price point on par with their low-end bait feeder reels. For example, we use eight high-quality stainless steel shielded ball bearings, and a triple disc carbon fiber drag washers, which exceeds other top of the line models,” says Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon, Inc.

The Maelstrom spinning reel lets a fish bite and run with trolled or drifted live bait without feeling the line or the reel’s drag. When the angler is ready to set the hook, a turn of the handle or a flip of the main drag lever instantly engages the pre-selected maximum front drag tension. The secondary drag can be set to zero to let line out or just enough tension added to control the action of live bait.

The Ecooda Maelstrom is equipped with eight high-grade shielded stainless steel ball bearings plus a stainless steel anti-reverse roller bearing, triple carbon fiber drag washers, stainless steel main shaft , a patented “Wonder Dome” forged aluminum spool that has near zero start up inertia resistance for smooth drag performance, special formula high modulus non-rusting graphite body, and a machined aluminum direct drive interchangeable left or right handed handle with oversized EVA nonslip grips. As a bonus, Maelstrom reels come with an additional graphite spool at no charge. Maelstrom is saltwater approved.

Darcy Hill, who targets big redfish with live bait near Charleston, SC and is a Team Eposeidon angler consultant says, “I’ve been a part of the Ecooda Maelstrom project since the idea of doing our own bait runner came to fruition last summer at ICAST (International Convention of Associated Sportfishing Trades). This reel will be an epic game changer for Eposeidon. I’m honored to have played a part in its creation!”

The Maelstrom bait runner is available in 2000, 3000, 4000, and 5000 class sizes. With a MSRP spanning from $64.98 – $70.98 the Maelstrom will initially be sold in the mid $50 range.

Tate Cui, Eposeidon‘s CEO stated, “Once again we have an opportunity to show the fishing community that they can have high quality, innovative fishing tackle at an affordable price. This has been the corporate mandate since the company was founded.”
