A Warrior’s Guide to Self-Defense, by Kyle Swinehart, is a self-defense guide that increases your chances of surviving vicious life and death situations.

First Edition Design POD & eBook Publishing

Bloomington, IN, USA (September 26, 2015) — Former Marine Corps infantry machine gunner and martial arts instructor Kyle Swinehart’s A Warrior’s Guide to Self-Defense is a practical self-defense guide targeted towards the untrained individual who desires to embody a warrior mentality, and learn how to survive a violent assault with the principles and strategies of close quarters fighting.

A Warrior's Guide to Self-Defense

This is not a style of martial arts; these fighting tactics are extremely violent in nature because they were born on the battlefield, and designed for combating the most savage and deadly encounters in real world scenarios. It combines human biological instincts with self-control to form a completely fluid fighting strategy that is perpetually changing based on your threat and the environment around you.

In this warrior’s manual, you will learn how your body responds in an emergency, and what you can do to prepare yourself for violent combat. Kyle will describe the advantages of embracing the chaos, and how to respond to being assaulted. You will learn about the systems that allow your body to function, and the most effective way to target these systems on your enemy and successfully shut them off during a physical confrontation. Kyle will use simple physics to demonstrate the importance of speed in motion, and how to produce these effects with your body in the most efficient way. You will learn about his Spartan Defense, a close quarters maneuver that will maximize your offensive and defensive capabilities. He will also cover the various ranges of fighting in combat, and the safest way to traverse between them. You will also read about several of the most quick and effective methods of quickly taking your opponent down in close quarters, and the best strategies for fighting multiple opponents. This self-defense guide also contains numerous escape and evasion tactics Kyle learned in the Marine Corps infantry.

You will learn how to be a hard target, what to do when someone is following you, and how to survive being kidnapped. It also includes various methods of escaping the most common enemy restraints. Kyle also teaches what your objectives are when you are assaulted with a deadly weapon, and how you must respond to being seriously injured by your attacker. This incredibly informative self-defense guide is packed full of tactics and knowledge that can potentially save your life, be helpful in real world scenarios. http://www.KyleSwinehart.com

Genre – Self Defense, Attacker, Protection, Assault, Deadly Weapon, Warrior, Mentality, Life, Death, Survival, Marine, Fighting, Tactics

This book is very informative and useful for protecting yourself. No matter the situation and personal limitations, this book walks you through how to handle yourself and don’t go down without a fight. After reading this book, while I never hope to have to use it, I definitely am more knowledgeable about what to do and what not to do. ~Jayne Wonge

Short book, but great information and well written. ~Jamie Baynes, Amazon Top Reviewer

I would give this book to my friends or my kids to understand what they need to do to go to a new city or out of the country on their own. I would have them practice the techniques like the information on speed being more important than working on a hard hit so they would see the importance of the information, but Kyle is correct. And, if you want to see why he’s right, just watch movies from Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, or about the Ip Man. They all emphasize the same things. ~Cat Jennings

The ebook version of A Warrior’s Guide to Self-Defense ISBN 9781622878994, published by First Edition Design Publishing (http://www.firsteditiondesignpublishing.com), is available on-line wherever ebooks are sold. The 98 page print book version, ISBN 9781622878987 is published by First Edition Design Publishing and distributed worldwide to online booksellers.

New Book Release – Quantum Times, by Bill Diffenderffer

Quantum Times, by Bill Diffenderffer, tells a tale of visitors from Other Parallel Earths to our Earth, with intentions both cautionary and piratical.

First Edition Design POD & eBook Publishing

Columbus, OH, USA (September 25, 2015) — Bill Diffenderffer’s Quantum Times peels off the cover of our world (at both the physical and the political levels) to point at the strange and dangerous forces creating the times we live in.

Quantum Times

Quantum Times is a ‘hard’ Syfy novel about the good and the bad that can come to our planet over the next thirty years as our technology innovations are realized. Its story lines are written from the headlines of our world’s newspapers showcasing global terrorism, rogue nation states and political and economic inequality. It projects a world at risk of destroying itself with its ever more powerful technology flowing down to increasingly dangerous nihilistic leaders.

Borrowing from the ‘Many Worlds’ theoretical physics theory, in Quantum Times our Earth is visited by “aliens” from three other worlds – all of which turn out to be ‘Other Earths’. Yet these Earths are different from ours: their histories developed differently. These Other Earths are more technologically advanced than ours, particularly in their understanding of how to manipulate reality through understanding the latent power of “consciousness”. They arrive just after North and South Korea have destroyed each other with an exchange of nuclear missiles. Our world is on edge.

These Other Earths each have their own reasons for coming. One comes to help us avoid our potential for destruction, one comes like a pirate to first create chaos and then feed off of the opportunities presented, and one comes to further its own empire building dreams across all the Earths. What isn’t clear to our political leaders is which is which. Each claims to come to help us.

As the story develops, one of the Other Earths arms our Earth’s terrorist groups with more powerful weapons. These are used to destroy the US Embassy in Tel Aviv and threaten the Capitol in Washington. Powerful bombs are set off in London and New York City and there is an escalation of terrorist acts everywhere.

Excellent and well described and engaging storyline. I found the quantum theory multiverse description intriguing. Well worth reading and provoking. ~Nik Psevdos

I really enjoyed this book, I will watch for sequel. ~Barbara Fiehn

Good, taut SF novel that takes new age beliefs and places them firmly within the halls of science. Philosophy and physics co-mingle within the plot of this high stakes thriller for the future of this Earth as we learn that there are as many Earths as history has provided opportunities for clan/state clashes. Rather than create new realities in an alternate timeline, new Earths are created where the losers prevail. Now our Earth is a juicy target for the others. It’s a good tale and implied first in a series. ~Suzanne Reuss

Genre – Syfy, Quantum Physics, Terrorism, Consciousness, Many Worlds, Politics, End-Of-World

The ebook version of Quantum Times ISBN 9781622879755, published by First Edition Design Publishing, is available on-line wherever ebooks are sold. The 334 page print book version, ISBN 9781622879748 is published by First Edition Design Publishing and distributed worldwide to online booksellers.

New Book Release – Swiss Recipe To Happiness, by Stephan Bosshard

Swiss Recipe To Happiness, by Stephan Bosshard, is his story of becoming King, “Pretzel King” that is, and his recipe for success and happiness.

First Edition Design POD & eBook Publishing

Miami, FL, USA (September 24, 2015) — Stephan Bosshard’s Swiss Recipe To Happiness is the story of a Swiss businessman who thought he had fulfilled his dreams, but then realized that on the way, he had lost sight of his real goals. He let go of what he had achieved, sold his company and regained what he had lost: his freedom. His autobiography, which reads like a suspenseful novel, is a great success story with heart and soul. And he has found the recipe to happiness. – The man is Stephan Bosshard

Swiss Recipe To Happiness

Although Stephan Bosshard was born (on August 6, 1960) and raised in Switzerland, it wouldn’t be quite appropriate to call him the typical Swiss.

Due to his not exactly carefree childhood, he took his life into his own hands quite early and began to dream of true happiness.

He found it – not where one might expect, in his success and wealth, but in the subtleties of daily life. He learned from experience that true happiness consists of love, leisure time and good health. On the zenith of his career – around the turn of the Millennium – he decided to let go. He sold his life’s work, the famous “Pretzel King” business, at a profit. For the time being, that spelled a Happy End to his earlier chase after happiness.

Today, Bosshard lives a happy, contented life – with his wife and their dog GIGI – away from any common daily routine, in Switzerland and on his yacht in Florida. He is convinced that on the way he has found his “Recipe for Happiness”.

Swiss Recipe to Happiness, is a great read, the author did not get over descriptive keeping with a good page turning pace. This simple entrepreneur lived his life to its fullest and worked his butt off to enjoy his success A simple yet, riveting account of his very spontaneous and exciting movements in his business and his travels around the globe. Fun and uplifting in every way. ~Keith Maling Amazon 5 Star Review

Genre – Autobiography, Self-Made Millionaire, Love Story, True Story, Adventure, Travel, Success, Happiness, Satisfaction, Goal Achieved, Survivalist

The ebook version of Swiss Recipe To Happiness ISBN 9781622879502, published by First Edition Design Publishing, is available on-line wherever ebooks are sold.

A Wild Spring in Yellowstone

John is thrilled to be out west. He can’t wait to see the sights, hike the trails, and take pictures with his new camera. But on their first day in the park, everything changes in a flash. What happened?

ABOUT KNIGHTMARE ON WALL STREET
Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets is a thrilling minute-by-minute account of the terrifying hours following Knight Capital’s August 1, 2012 trading debacle, with news-breaking research regarding the firm’s 17 years of tumultuous existence as an independent company. Knightmare on Wall Street is the definitive behind-the-scenes story of Knight Capital.

The firm, 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.

Knightmare on Wall Street provides a fascinating account of what it took to elevate the firm to the cusp of the retail investing revolution of the late 1990s, to struggle through booms and busts, and to bring the firm down, to end up ultimately being ignominiously bought up by a competitor.

ABOUT THE SPEED TRADERS
High-frequency traders have been called many things-from masters of the universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even predators. Everyone in the business of investing has an opinion of speed traders, but how many really understand how they operate? The shadow people of the investing world, today’s high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile-until now. In this new title, The Speed Traders, Mr. Perez opens the door to the secretive world of high-frequency trading (HFT). Inside, prominent figures of HFT drop their guard and speak with unprecedented candidness about their trade.

Mr. Perez begins with an overview of computerized trading, which formally began on February 8, 1971, when NASDAQ launched the world’s first electronic market with 2,500 over-the-counter stocks and which has evolved into the present-day practice of making multiple trades in a matter of microseconds. He then picks the brains of today’s top players. Manoj Narang (Tradeworx), John Netto (M3 Capital), and Aaron Lebovitz (Infinium Capital Management) are just a few of the luminaries who decided to break their silence and speak openly to Mr. Perez. Virtually all of the expertise available from the world of speed trading is packed into these pages.

The Speed Traders, published by McGraw-Hill Inc., is the most comprehensive, revealing work available on the most important development in trading in generations. High-frequency trading will no doubt play an ever larger role as computer technology advances and the global exchanges embrace fast electronic access. The Speed Traders explains everything there is to know about how today’s high-frequency traders make millions-one cent at a time.

Rosendin Electric’s Diya Peter Wins 2015 Women in Construction Award

Constructech Recognizes Operations Applications Team Leader for Her Role in Bringing New Technology to All Rosendin Electric Regions.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA (September 22, 2015) — Rosendin Electric, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, is proud to announce that Diya Peter, Operations Applications Lead for the company, has been recognized by Constructech Magazine with a 2015 Women In Construction Award. The Award is presented each year to the most influential women shaping the construction industry.

Ms. Peter was selected as one of a select group of women who are having an impact on construction. In her role as Operations Applications Lead, Ms. Peter has been responsible for the design, development, and deployment of all applications used by Rosendin Electric’s Field and Operations team. Much of her responsibility includes implementing new technology to Rosendin Electric’s regional offices as well as field training. Most recently, she has been implementing a new time-tracking application designed for field payroll and time management, and deploying construction project management platforms companywide.

“Diya is an evangelist for new ideas and new technologies and has been instrumental in bringing the latest applications to the field,” said Sam Lamonica, CIO of Rosendin Electric. “Her experience and passion have been instrumental in gaining the confidence of our field personnel and regional managers and getting them to embrace the latest technology tools.”

Ms. Peter has more than seven years of experience in developing and managing IT systems for the construction industry and she serves as a mentor to other women, drawing from her extensive experience in IT and construction to counsel them on future career opportunities. She is also active with an industry-related CIO Scholarship Fund, which has been tasked with starting a Young Professionals Group to support MIS students.

“I am honored to receive a Women in Construction Award,” said Ms. Peter. “Women are still a minority in the construction industry, and this award not only speaks to the value of my contribution, but it honors all of the women who are changing the face of construction.”

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, women only make up 8.9 percent of the construction workforce, and even a smaller percentage contributes to construction technology. Constructech’s Women in Construction awards honor those women who are not only contributors to the construction industry, but also whose passion and leadership are shaping the future of construction.

Monika Mori Named as the Gallery’s New Featured Artist

Light Space & Time Logo

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that contemporary artist Monika Mori is the gallery’s newest featured artist.

Monika Mori - Artist Showcase

Jupiter, FL, USA (September 19, 2015) — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is pleased to announce that contemporary artist Monika Mori is the gallery’s newest featured artist. She will now be presented and promoted in the gallery’s Artist Showcase for the next 30 days.

Monika Mori, a/k/a MOO, was born in 1960 in Moedling, Austria. She had studies in Fine Art, amplified her scope as an artist by formal training courses and workshops throughout Europe and the United States.

The Austrian contemporary multimedia artist creates playful moody paintings, drawings and collages celebrating experiences and emotions animated by dazzling colors or strictly black and white. Her early works are highly expressive – she has always wanted the world to hear what she has to say, and these artistic communications embody her emotions, experiences and her delight at the interaction with color. For Mori, color is liberating.

In her series “Mystical Garden” which started in 2012 and found its renaissance this year, she creates flowers in a seemingly easy style. These drawings are a moral suasion to protect nature instead of manipulating seeds. It is her great concern that people relearn to think independently and to act accordingly. She thinks that mankind had become lazy, likes to have regulations in all areas so that they can make others responsible.

Mori’s work has been exhibited worldwide and is included in public and private collections around the globe. Her website http://www.mori-art.at.

Market Rates Insight Introduces FeeBuilder, an Interactive Fees Database to Help Financial Institutions Optimize Fee Revenue

New National Fee Tracking Database Gives Banks and Credit Unions Live Competitive Information on Retail Deposit Fees.

Market Rates Insight

San Anselmo, CA, USA — Market Rates Insight, Inc., the leader in financial services pricing intelligence for deposits, personal loans, mortgages, and fees, today announced the launch of FeeBuilder™, the first live retail deposit fees database for financial institutions (FIs). FeeBuilder is a subscription-based, interactive, decision-support fees database that helps financial institutions (FIs) make up-to-the-moment observations about retail FI deposit fees nationwide. The latest FDIC data shows that consumer overdraft charges, periodic maintenance charges, and ATM fees alone make up more than 50 percent of service charges on deposit accounts. FeeBuilder provides a competitive benchmark for FIs to optimize competitive deposit account fees instantly, and to answer off-cycle fee questions.

FeeBuilder was designed to help FI decision-making for competitive deposit fees. It provides instant peer-to-peer analyses at the national, state, and local level with comprehensive competitive fee data on checking, savings, money market accounts, and certificates of deposit. FeeBuilder covers overdraft, non-sufficient funds (NSF), monthly service fees, ATM fees, and wire transfer. Users can segment by product, geographic market, and by FI. FeeBuilder includes access to deposit fees at 95 percent of banks with over $10 billion in assets, 98 percent of credit unions with more than $1 billion, and all significant direct banks. With 1,700 FIs and growing, this database is essential for FIs that depend on deposit fee revenue, and it is the first and only fees tracking service to offer daily updates for immediate decision support.

With interest rates still at record lows, FIs are increasingly dependent on deposit fees for revenue. In fact, overdraft fees have become a primary source of revenue, accounting for nearly $32 billion in 2013. Very soon, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) will issue new overdraft guidelines that will affect some fee revenue.

“FI margin squeeze is real. Banks and credit unions are facing mounting market and regulatory pressures at a time when the velocity of change and demands for transparency are overwhelming,” said Rick Barham, founder and CEO of Market Rates Insight. “It’s more important than ever to be able to have a fast and accurate fees benchmark. Aligning your deposit fees with live market data not only helps you keep pace with the competition, but it also means you aren’t leaving potential revenue on the table. FeeBuilder helps our clients stay one step ahead, and it answers their most pressing questions.”

FeeBuilder is essential for executives who need to set deposit fees or develop new financial products. FeeBuilder can be applied in a number of ways:

1. FeeBuilder answers off-cycle questions about fees without the usual delay of waiting for a custom fee study.
2. FeeBuilder helps FIs locate alternative revenue sources to Overdraft.
3. FeeBuilder provides a competitive benchmark for current and new products.
4. FeeBuilder reveals market trends by geography, product category, and institution.
5. FeeBuilder shows where the CFPB is exerting influence on OD with live market data.
6. FeeBuilder also is valuable for business development, opening new markets, and M&A strategies.

FeeBuilder is delivered as a quarterly report and on-demand. The data is structured as a comprehensive spreadsheet that provides snapshots that can be manipulated for inclusion in reports, projections, and presentations.

Included with the FeeBuilder subscription is a quarterly bonus look at the data via TrendSpotter, showing fee changes highlighted by product category or institution. TrendSpotter quickly reveals how the industry is responding to consumer and regulatory pressure regarding fees, and it shows accumulated changes by fee at the national level.

Edgar Perez, Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015, on China, Russia, U.S. and North Korea’s Hacking

Edgar Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, brings Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015, seminars in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo that are targeted at board members and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain competitive business advantage in one of the most critical subjects for corporations and governments worldwide.

Mr. Edgar Perez

New York City, NY, USA (September 16, 2015) — Amid the massive Sony Pictures hacking crisis by the end of 2014, Russia offered support to North Korea in a sign that proved relations between the two nations were growing tighter. According to the Russians, the United States failed to offer any form of proof to back its claims against North Korea in the Sony Pictures hacking scandal.

What was China’s take on the situation? “Any civilized world will oppose hacker attacks or terror threats,” said China in a Global Times editorial. “But a movie like The Interview, which makes fun of the leader of an enemy of the U.S., is nothing to be proud of for Hollywood and U.S. society. Americans always believe they can jab at other countries’ leaders just because they are free to criticize or make fun of their own state leaders. Actually, the countries targeted in Hollywood movies are very selective, such as the Cold War era’s Soviet Union, North Korea and Iran.”

Mr. Edgar Perez, a published author, business consultant for private equity and hedge funds and Council Member at the Gerson Lehrman Group, is set to discuss at Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 what these four super cyber powers, China, Russia, United States and North Korea, have in common. Mr. Perez is a subject matter expert in cybersecurity, investing, trading, financial regulation (Dodd-Frank Act) and market structure.

Mr. Perez has presented at a number of global conferences, including Cyber Security World Conference 2014 (New York), MIT Sloan Investment Management Conference (Cambridge), Inside Market Data 2013 (Chicago), Institutional Investor’s Global Growth Markets Forum (London), Technical Analysis Society (Singapore), TradeTech Asia (Singapore), Emerging Markets Investments Summit 2013 (Warsaw), CME Group’s Global Financial Leadership Conference 2012 (Naples Beach, FL), Harvard Business School’s Venture Capital & Private Equity Conference (Boston0 High-Frequency Trading Leaders Forum (New York, Chicago), FIXGlobal Face2Face (Seoul) and Private Equity Convention Russia, CIS & Eurasia (London).

Additionally, Mr. Perez has been engaged to present to the Council on Foreign Relations, Vadym Hetman Kyiv National Economic University (Kiev), U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (Washington DC), Quant Investment & HFT Summit APAC 2012 (Shanghai), CFA Singapore, Hong Kong Securities Institute, Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, University of International Business and Economics (Beijing), Hult International Business School (Shanghai) and Pace University (New York), among other public and private institutions. Mr. Perez’s participation at these forums has been praised by both organizers and attendees:

“It was such a pleasure to have you participate in our conference. The feedback was great and the information you shared with the audience was invaluable. Once again, thank you for your contribution in making the event a success.”

“I would like to show my appreciation on your willingness to share your insights about cybersecurity. We would certainly have you in mind as we move forward to deal with this very important issue.”

ABOUT CYBERSECURITY BOARDROOM WORKSHOP 2015

As cyber attacks become more common, companies are increasingly investing in cyber security protections. But even with the best systems in place, hackers can still easily break into a company’s network if workers aren’t also being diligent about security. Cyber criminals have gotten much better at disguising malicious email to make it look more legitimate. So employees need to be vigilant and ask questions about all of the email they receive that raises even the slightest suspicion, which is most likely not what happened at some of the high-profile cyber security breaches that have been in the headlines recently: Adobe, ADP, E*Trade, Fidelity, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Nasdaq, Neiman Marcus, Sony, Target and Wal-mart.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 (http://www.cybersecurityboardroomworkshop.com), How Boards of Directors and CXOs Can Build the Proper Foundation to Address Today’s Information Security Challenges, is a must-attend forum for board members, CEOs, CFOs, COOs and executive managers in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo who need to become more educated about cyber security in order to ask questions that are strategic yet granular enough to address company specifics.

ALIPAC Calls for Vote on License for Illegal Aliens Bill (HB 328)

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC calls for vote on License for Illegal Aliens Bill (HB 328).

Alipac

Raleigh, NC, USA — Contact: William Gheen | (866) 703-0864 | WilliamG@alipac.us

In a surprising response to rumors that HB 328 sponsor Harry Warren is telling NC lawmakers that he has the votes in place to pass his “licenses for illegal aliens” bill and that a plan is in place to conduct a “low profile” vote before the 2015 legislative sessions ends, ALIPAC is changing position to now call for Speaker Tim Moore to allow a vote!

While remaining fervently opposed to HB 328 and any legislation that provides taxpayer benefits to illegals such as licenses, tuition breaks, and welfare, ALIPAC feels that now is the perfect time for the small group of GOP lawmakers to cast votes with the Democrat allies. This means that now both supporters and opponents are calling for a vote on the bill!

“Illegal immigration is the top issue in America right now and there is a negative coattail effect in place for Republicans like Jeb Bush and NC Rep. Harry Warren due to their support for legislation that illegal aliens and their employers like the NC Farm Bureau want,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC.

“We want Speaker Tim Moore to bring HB 328 to the floor immediately so we can get every Republican lawmaker who supports licenses for illegals on the record with an official vote. Since scientific polling data and the recent public referendum defeat for such licenses in Oregon show us public opposition ranges from 64-83%, we feel GOP lawmakers dumb enough to push the Yea button on HB 328 in the run up to the 2016 primaries will be committing political suicide. So our message to Rep. Harry Warren and his GOP lawmakers that plan to use Democrat votes to give licenses to illegals is ‘Make our day’!”

ALIPAC and other NC based organizations have been able to identify 11 GOP lawmakers supporting HB 328 by analyzing videos from committee votes on the bill. That list of names was used to file a NC Republican Party resolution to censure Republican Representatives Harry Warren, Brian Brown, Jeff Collins, Jonathan Jordan, Nelson Dollar, Larry Yarborough, Paul Stam, Charles Jeter, Bob Steinberg, Susan Martin, and Jay Adams for violating the NC GOP platform by voting for drivers licenses/permits for immigrants here unlawfully.

Also, NC GOP and ALIPAC activists are searching for Republican primary challengers for these lawmakers who are hoping to have a sneaky vote on HB 328 before they leave session in a few days or weeks.

While ALIPAC is changing our position to ask that Speaker Moore now bring the bill up for a vote, the organization’s full opposition to HB 328 and licenses for illegals will intensify in the hopes of either defeating the bill now and shutting it down for years, or by achieving the goal of providing NC voters with the full list of elected Republicans in the NC House that agree with Democrats on supporting the bill.

ALIPAC believes that conducting a vote on HB 328 at this time would maximize chances the bill is defeated and maximize public backlash while simultaneously providing GOP voters with a full list of which Republicans in the NC House are disloyal to the public and the GOP Party platform.

Chances are high such a vote could even make licenses for illegal immigrants a topic of debate in the Presidential Elections of 2015-2016!

T5 Data Centers Signs New Financial Tenant for T5@Atlanta

Superior Physical Security and Design Flexibility Attracts Financial Services Company Servicing Global Transactions.

T5 Data Centers

Atlanta, GA, USA — T5 Data Centers™, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, has signed a lease with a new tenant for its T5@Atlanta data center. This new financial services tenant provides global transaction processing services to banks and credit card companies, and it will be hosting its North American hub at T5@Atlanta.

T5’s reputation for enterprise quality solutions and flexibility proved to be key differentiators for this new tenant. For example, the level of secure access to the data center exceeded audit requirements, and the T5 team worked closely with the new tenant in designing a data center infrastructure that met their specific needs. The T5@Atlanta data center already houses several financial services firms so this tenant’s specifications were very familiar.

“We are attracting more financial services tenants and companies with business-critical requirements because of our service, our reputation for reliability, and our flexibility of solution and lease terms,” said Tim Bright, Executive Vice President of T5 Data Centers. “This particular client’s requirements were stringent to begin with, which eliminated a number of regional competitors, and our overall offering exceeded their compliance needs and gave them flexibility to grow. Finally, our ability to offer a superior infrastructure and a predictable real estate cost model made T5@Atlanta a logical choice for this company.”

T5@Atlanta is a purpose-built, Tier III, server-ready data center with multiple data suite sizes and densities within a secure, bunkered facility. T5@Atlanta houses over 100,000 square feet under one roof; including 55,000 square feet of raised floor. It also offers an installed critical IT power load of 6,000 kW, expandable to 9,000 kW.

One of the unique features of T5@Atlanta, is its power redundancy. T5@Atlanta is fed by five separate substations; two of them on Georgia Power’s “Hi-Reli” system for mission-critical users. The 25 kV feeds from the substations are encased in concrete with an automatic transfer switch on site, delivering flawless reliability. Three additional substations can also feed the facility if necessary, although the primary and secondary circuits have had a historical reliability in excess of Tier IV requirements.

T5@Atlanta is LEED Silver certified, offers tenants significant tax incentives, operational control of their whitespace with guaranteed power and cooling availability within the robust utility, and fiber-rich Alpharetta Technology corridor.

The Epson TM-C7500G uses four large (CKYM) 340ml Epson TM-C7500G ink cartridges, resulting in the lowest print ink cost in the industry – 50 percent less than laser and thermal transfer printers, and even greater savings when compared to the Primera LX900 and LX2000 where you will see huge ink cost savings per label and blazing fast print speeds.

Brown said that the ColorWorks C7500G gloss version, along with Epson TM-C7500G labels, is in stock with most orders being shipped within 24 hours – with free shipping across the United States and Canada. Optimedia Labs is offering free onsite service (in major cities across USA and Canada) during the first year to all customers who purchase the Epson TM-C7500G directly from OptimediaLabs.com or OptimediaLabs.ca.

The Epson TM-C7500G price is affordable, and is available for a low monthly lease payment of $209 USD (on approved credit) over 60 months (shorter terms available). If you print over 3,000 labels per month on the Primera LX900 or LX2000, the monthly ink savings could pay for an Epson TM-C7500G. Send Optimedia Labs your label design file for an ink cost analysis and find out exactly how much you can save.

Edgar Perez Faces off Burning Cybersecurity Crisis in NYC, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta & Sydney

Edgar Perez brings Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015, seminars in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo that are specifically designed for board members, senior executives and entrepreneurial business professionals looking for new ways to gain and maintain competitive business advantage in one of the most critical subjects for corporations and governments worldwide.

Workshop

New York City, NY, USA (September 11, 2015) — Edgar Perez, the published author, business consultant for billion-dollar private equity and hedge funds and Council Member at the Gerson Lehrman Group, and subject matter expert in cybersecurity, investing, trading, financial regulation (Dodd-Frank Act) and market structure, faces off burning cyber security crisis with seminars in America, Europe and Asia. He has presented his workshops in cities around the world, including Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Warsaw, Kiev, New York, Singapore, Beijing and Shanghai. He contributes to The New York Times and China’s International Finance News and Sina Finance.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 (http://www.cybersecurityboardroomworkshop.com), How Boards of Directors and CXOs Can Build the Proper Foundation to Address Today’s Information Security Challenges, is specifically designed for boards of directors and CEOs of public and private firms looking for new ways to gain and maintain their competitive advantages. Business executives with responsibility for IT, finance, compliance, risk management and procurement as well as entrepreneurs and innovators are welcome to add their points of view to the debate.

As cyber attacks become more common, companies are increasingly investing in cyber security protections. But even with the best systems in place, hackers can still easily break into a company’s network if workers aren’t also being diligent about security. Cyber criminals have gotten much better at disguising malicious email to make it look more legitimate. So employees need to be vigilant and ask questions about all of the email they receive that raises even the slightest suspicion, which is most likely not what happened at some of the high-profile cyber security breaches that have been in the headlines recently: Adobe, ADP, E*Trade, Fidelity, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Nasdaq, Neiman Marcus, Sony, Target and Wal-mart.

Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 is a must-attend forum for board members, CEOs, CFOs, COOs and executive managers in New York City, London, Dubai, Bangkok, Jakarta, Sydney, Taipei, Seoul and Tokyo who need to become more educated about cyber security in order to ask questions that are strategic yet granular enough to address company specifics. Cybersecurity Boardroom Workshop 2015 is targeted at corporate decision-makers for whom cybersecurity readiness is a relatively new yet critically important area to be intelligently conversant about.

UniNet iColor 700 Digital Label Press Outshines Primera CX1200

Optimedia Labs Logo

The UniNet iColor 700 digital label press is a worthy competitor to Primera CX1200 – outshining it in speed, flexibility, variability, and cost.

UniNet iColor 700 Digital Label Press

Concord, Ontario (September 3, 2015) — The Primera CX1200 digital label press, and its CX1000 sibling, is widely considered the best industrial color label press. A new player has emerged, the UniNet iColor 700, and it outshines the Primera CX1200 in: speed, flexibility, variability, and operating cost.

Both are laser label printers. Powered by LED laser technology, the iColor 700 operates at a lower operating temperature, allowing for a much larger selection of laser label materials. Jim Brown from Optimedia Labs said, “The iColor 700 prints on paper, tag, vinyl, polypropylene and polyester label stock – and more. The Primera CX1200’s media choices are much more limited.”

The UniNet iColor 700 is nearly twice as fast as the Primera CX1200, printing at 30 feet per minute (the CX1200 is 16.25 feet per minute). Faster print jobs save both time and money.

Other advantages include:

• Matrix removal – The iColor 700 prints label media with or without the matrix. Primera’s CX1200/CX1000 requires purchasing additional equipment, like the FX1000 matrix removal system, to remove the matrix.

• Media width – The UniNet iColor 700 prints on media from 3 to 8.5 inches wide while the Primera CX1200/CX1000 only prints on 8.5-inch media. For example, when printing a 4×3 label on the CX1200/CX1000, a single label spans the 8.5-inch media, resulting in waste. The iColor 700 can print two across on 8.5-inch media or one across using a 6-inch media width, reducing media costs.

• Glossy GHS printing – Both label printers can print GHS BS5609 labels, but the iColor 700 can do so on glossy polypropylene labels for a nicer look. The Primera CX1200 and CX1000’s higher temperature would melt glossy polypropylene labels.

• Variable data – The iColor 700 has an option for printing variable data, such as unique serial numbers, barcodes, and product information, on labels in one step. The Primera CX1200/CX1000 does not support variable data.

• White toner option – This allows for printing white graphics and text on clear or black label stock. The Primera CX1200 and CX1000 do not have a white toner option.

• Cost – The UniNet iColor 700 is about $3,000 cheaper than the Primera CX1200. “It’s not just the lower purchase price,” Brown pointed out. “The UniNet iColor 700 will produce label jobs faster and at lower cost due to reduced media wastage. Plus, the toners on the iColor 700 are also cheaper since the drum and toners are two separate units. Primera’s toner and drum are in a single unit, costing more to replace.”

Optimedia Labs offers low monthly payments on the UniNet iColor 700 (on approved credit) through its business leasing program – and fast turnaround and free shipping.
