Joe Robaina is Awarded the First Ever Military Residential Specialist Certification in Miami-Dade County

The Platinum Worldwide Group at the Keller Williams Realty Coral Gables – Coconut Grove market center announced today that Joe Robaina is awarded the first ever Military Residential Specialist certification awarded in Miami-Dade county specifically to better assist Veterans, as well as active service members and their families.

46311-milres-02

Coral Gables, FL, USA — The Platinum Worldwide Group is a real estate team at the Keller Williams Realty Coral Gables – Coconut Grove market center in the greater Miami area and they announced today that Joe Robaina, a broker-associate and the team’s leader, has been awarded the Military Residential Specialist certification after completing the first course offered for that purpose in Miami-Dade county.

The Military residential Specialist website (gomilres.com) describes the program as follows:

“The Military Residential Specialist (MilRES) Program offers real estate professionals the opportunity to help ‘military’ clients and their families while growing their own business in this important but under-served market segment.”

“MilRES® was founded in 2010 by nationally known speaker Buddy West. After two years of researching the subject, traveling to military installations and interviewing military officers and enlisted service members, veterans, their families, Congressman and heads of the Veteran’s administration, the MilRES® team was ready with an outline and plan to develop the class. This class was not written by a ‘class writer or developer,’ but from content from the military for Realtors® to serve the military.”

Here is a link to a YouTube video by congressman John Carney on this subject: https://youtu.be/8fhC5jqMR2I

Mr. Robaina had this to say about his reasons for seeking out this certification:

“As a professional real estate adviser, I am always looking for ways to increase my knowledge and ability to help those who rely on my and my team for real estate advice and services. However, in this case, I was especially keen to the opportunity to become better equipped to serve the special needs of Veterans, active and retired military personnel because I feel a debt to them and their families for the sacrifices they all make to serve and protect us.”

Mr. Robaina is currently preparing a series of seminars and webinars designed to inform the South Florida community about the needs and many programs available specifically for Veterans, active and retired members of the military, as well as the National Guard, Reserves, Coast Guard, Fires, Police and other branches of government service personnel line the FBI and CIA through his affiliation with the “Heroes” program which provides additional financial benefits through reimbursement of real estate commissions and reduced fee or no-fee programs offered by affiliated mortgage providers, and other service providers.

Anyone interested in participating or attending one of these presentations or simply learning more about any of these programs can contact Mr. Robaina by visiting his website: http://www.platinumworldwidegroup.com.

KastKing® Breaks Out Unique Fishing Reel

A new concept to thwart fishing line tangles wraps itself around the KastKing® Mako Spinning Reel.

Eposeidon KastKing

Garden City, Long Island, NY (January 26, 2016) — KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc. (http://www.eposeidon.com), has come out with a new innovative spinning reel for 2016 named the KastKing® Mako 3500.

KastKing Mako 3500

Although the key features of the KastKing® Mako 3500 include an impressive line retrieve rate for its size, an exceptional drag rated at 22 lbs./ 10 kg from its oversized drag washers, and 8 + 1 shielded stainless steel bearings, anglers will appreciate the revolutionary design rotor brushes that prevent their fishing line from dropping down on to the spool skirt during retrieve. The exclusive rotor brushes on the Mako spinning reels reduce loops and snarls resulting in a more pleasant fishing experience. This unique antifouling spinning reel rotor design is not available from other brands.

KastKing Mako 3500 Spinning Reel

The KastKing® Mako 3500 reel gets its amazing smoothness from 8 stainless steel shielded ball bearings plus one instant stop anti-reverse. A beefy reel foot made from aero-grade aluminum alloy and a deep aluminum spool machined from the same material that retrieves 36 inches of line per turn of its handle give the Mako spinning reel a rock-solid feel.

KastKing® Mako 3500 reels are finished in black and silver with a distinctive spool lip gold accent, have a right hand or left hand reversible CNC machined aluminum handle, a 5.1: 1 gear ratio, and a EVA flat paddle non-slip knob. A Mako 3500 weighs 11.82oz/ 335g and has a line capacity of (mm/m) 0.25mm/190m, 0.30/130, 0.35/100 and a monofilament line capacity of (lbs/ yds) 8 lb / 240 yards, 10 lb /195 yards , 12 lb/ 165 yards.

“Like many KastKing® products, the KastKing® Mako 3500 stands out due to its inventive design features,” says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon, Inc.. “Mako’s rotor brushes keep any line that has spilled over the spool up where it belongs and virtually eliminates line overrun loop fowling. There’s nothing quite like the KastKing® Mako out on the market.”

KastKing® Mako 3500 will have a MSRP of $69.98 and be discounted to sell in the mid-$40 range at http://www.eposeidon.com, http://www.amazon.com/kastking, and other select online retailers.

ABOUT EPOSEIDON:

ALIPAC Asks Trump Supporters To Contribute to Insurgent GOP Candidates

Raleigh, NC, USA — Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC | WilliamG@alipac.us | (866) 703-0864

Alipac

With illegal immigration being the top issue of the GOP primaries for the first time in modern history, and with the leading GOP Candidate for President ascending due to his promise to deport illegals and Muslim refugees while financing his own campaign, ALIPAC is asking Donald Trump supporters to focus their donations on insurgent GOP candidates running against Republican incumbents that are likely to join with Democrats to oppose the Trump immigration plans.

ALIPAC has compiled an unprecedented list of Republican incumbents that have been documented supporting amnesty for illegal aliens despite the fact they are eager to convince GOP voters otherwise. This list is called the Cantor List and it now contains 178 GOP incumbents that stand with John McCain, Marco Rubio, Jeb bush, Eric Cantor, and Barack Obama in support of amnesty for illegal aliens!

“Since Mr. Trump has said he has no need for donations from his highly energized supporters, their financial support would be wisely spent backing GOP insurgent candidates that would back his tough enforcement agenda. The targets on our Cantor List are the men and women currently in congress that have blood on their hands for all of the deaths and destruction caused by illegal aliens that freely enter and roam America with government support due to Obama and his GOP facilitators and protectors,” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Regardless of which candidate you favor for President, the ‘Trump Effect’ is creating a powerful campaign coattail by which any GOP insurgent challenger can rise to the top of the race by exposing the amnesty support record of the 178 incumbents on the Cantor List! But it will not help America to elect an outsider candidate to the Presidency if these GOP lawmakers that support amnesty in Congress are reelected!”

Many GOP insurgent candidates have already emerged against GOP incumbents and made the incumbent’s support for amnesty for illegals a top campaign issue.

Eric Cantor’s support for amnesty for illegals, like the 178 new targets on the Cantor List, is the main reason he lost his race in 2014 to GOP newcomer Dave Brat. While Cantor outspent Brat 40 to 1, Brad defeated Cantor in a landslide with the help of his campaign manager Zach Werrell.

Adding to ALIPAC’s ability to target GOP incumbents that agree with Democrats like Pelosi and Obama on amnesty for illegals, Zach Werrell has launched a new campaign consulting firm to help more GOP primary insurgents repeat the astounding overthrow of Eric Cantor. Many of the tips on how to accomplish such a feat are in Werrell’s first of its kind book How to Bag a RINO.

“We need America to hear our call!” said William Gheen. “We need more GOP primary challengers lining up against Cantor List targets and using the resources and know how obtained from the Brat vs. Cantor race. We also need all of those Republican donors that would usually focus their funds on the star power candidates for President to focus their much need donations on the candidates and effort to change Congress by electing more anti-establishment anti-amnesty republicans in the 2016 primaries.”

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Reinventing The World, We Can Do Better” by Ben Korgen

Reinventing The World, We Can Do Better, by Ben Korgen, highlights the stagnant repetition of ineffective leadership and how we can break free.

First Edition Design POD & eBook Publishing

Hope Valley, RI, USA (January 24, 2016) — Ben Korgen’s Reinventing The World, We Can Do Better defines history recycling leadership spawning repeating cycles of prosperity, poverty, tranquility and violence.

Reinventing The World

This book suggests we can escape this by preparing political leaders for recruiting idea people, harvesting ideas, filtering out the best ones and subjecting them to worldwide referendums.

Humans will need fresh ideas. People tend to elect leaders whose image is a stable, solid citizen who can govern the ship of state with a steady hand on the helm. However, idea people usually do not make good leaders. Their most valuable thoughts pop into their heads at random in ways that prospective voters perceive as erratic and undesirable in leadership positions.

Science, engineering and technology have long histories of racing forward with little or no recycled effort. They have accomplished this driven by leaders who realize that maintaining the forward momentum depends on accepting the inputs of idea people.

This book addresses needs for a worldwide effort by offering a sample path for testing, adopting or discarding for something better. This path includes methods of world-scale recruitment of idea people, harvesting ideas, filtering them to winnow out the most promising ones and debating their value before worldwide referendums for approval and implementation.

Author Ben Korgen has had a highly varied career. He served in the US Navy, earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of Minnesota Duluth, earned a master’s degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, then coached high school football, earned a PhD in Oceanography at Oregon State University and had a long and rewarding career in Oceanography at the US Naval Oceanographic Office, the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill and Tulane University in New Orleans.

Genre – History-Recycling Leadership, Idea People, Idea Creation, Idea Sorting, Linking Ideas to Leadership

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Love’s Lone Ranger” by Ben Korgen

Love’s Lone Ranger, by Ben Korgen, weaves a crazy, zany tale of love, lust and Umptiscratch University football.

First Edition Design POD & eBook Publishing

Hope Valley, RI, USA (January 23, 2016) — Ben Korgen’s Love’s Lone Ranger sets as its undersized hero one Rudy Tripp. At age eleven, Rudy Tripp decides to become the greatest football coach ever.

Monaghan Medical Introduces Manometer Adapter to Measure Treatment with Aerobika® OPEP Device

New Adapter Tracks Airway Pressure Visually, Ensuring Therapeutic Effectiveness of Respiratory Treatment.

Monaghan Medical Corporation Logo

Plattsburgh, NY, USA (January 21, 2016) — Monaghan Medical Corporation (MMC) (http://www.monaghanmed.com), a leader in the development, manufacture, and marketing of respiratory devices, today announced the release of a new Manometer Adapter for its Aerobika® Oscillating Positive Expiratory Pressure (OPEP) device-a drug-free, clinically supported device that reduces coughing and breathlessness, increases lung hygiene, and improves gas transfer. The Manometer Adapter serves as a visual compliance tool for the Aerobika® OPEP to assist respiratory therapists and patients in assessing respiratory therapy that calls for active exhalation.

The MMC Aerobika® OPEP device improves respiration by clearing mucus from the lungs through exhalation. OPEP therapy is highly effective in postoperative patients for airway clearance and lung hygiene, and for patients with chronic respiratory conditions such as cystic fibrosis. With the addition of a Manometer Adapter, respiratory therapists, clinicians, and patients can literally see with their own eyes how well the patient is using the device.

The Aerobika® OPEP device works by using active exhalation: The patient wraps his or her mouth around the OPEP mouthpiece and exhales, while the device uses pulses of air resistance to release mucus trapped in smaller air pathways. The Manometer Adapter allows clinicians to measure the pressure exerted by active exhalation to determine therapeutic effectiveness. It is ideal for clinical training, ensuring that the OPEP device is used properly.

The Manometer Adapter-which has an easy-to-read scale that shows green when active exhalation is in the target zone of 5 cm to 20 cm H2O-provides immediate patient feedback and confirms that the patient is achieving therapeutic pressure every time the OPEP device is used.

“Postoperative patients and patients with severe respiratory conditions needed a new kind of respiratory treatment,” says Dom Coppolo, Vice President of Clinical Strategy and Development at Monaghan Medical Corporation. “That’s why we developed the Aerobika® OPEP Therapy System-to help treat ailments with a productive cough seeking a non-therapeutic method of removing mucus from the lungs. With the addition of the Manometer Adapter, we now have an OPEP device that is easy to use and easy to monitor. The Manometer Adapter provides a baseline for active exhalation therapy so practitioners can measure patients’ recovery progress.

“We are committed to providing products that ensure patients continue treatment and control their symptoms,” Coppolo says. “Providing metrics to measure treatment efficacy only speeds recovery.”

The Aerobika® OPEP is suitable for various patient treatments, such as post-operative thoracic recovery, lung volume expansion therapy, and atelectasis treatment, reducing the risk of pulmonary complications. The Aerobika® OPEP is easy to use, has no side effects or interactions since it is drug-free, and, with the new Manometer Adapter, makes it easier than ever to monitor therapeutic pressure levels.

KastKing Announces Affordable Mela Spinning Reel

Loaded with features and a spare spool as standard equipment, KastKing® Mela is set to grab market share.

Eposeidon KastKing

Garden City, Long Island, NY (January 20, 2016) — Long Island, NY based KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc. (http://www.eposeidon.com), is pleased to announce their new Mela Spinning Reel is in the fishing tackle marketplace. The 2016 model KastKing® Mela Spinning Reel is light, smooth, powerful, and comes with a spare spool at no additional charge.

KastKing Mela

Finished entirely in jet black, the Mela Spinning Reel’s standard features includes: 10 + 1 stainless steel bearings, instant stop anti-reverse, stainless steel main shaft, brass gear, interchangeable right or left hand CNC aerospace-grade machined aluminum handle and aluminum spool with honeycomb design spool skirt, plus a spare graphite spool.

KastKing Mela Spinning reels are available in 2000, 3000, 4000, and 5000 class sizes. Line capacity on the Mela ranges from 82 yards of 10 lb test on the Mela 2000 to 240 yards of 10 lb test on the 5000. The Mela’s light weight graphite body and all of its components are saltwater approved and carry a one-year warranty.

“The KastKing® Mela has more standard features than other reels costing many times more,” says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon, Inc.. “People often mistakenly equate low price with poor quality. Time after time KastKing has proven that is not the case. People are paying more for big name brands because they equate more expense with high quality. We have successfully offered quality fishing tackle at an affordable price. Based on Mela’s price point, we expect a large sales volume on this reel. Feedback about the Mela’s performance during testing was exceptional.”

MSRP for the KastKing Mela is $64.98 for the 2000, 3000 is $66.98, $68.98 for the 4000 and $70.98 for Mela 5000. It will retail through select on-line retailers such as http://www.amazon.com/kastking.

Jay Shimburski, of Fish Green Kayak Tours in South Carolina who is an Angler Consultant for KastKing says, “Mela is a nice reel that can be used for a lot of different applications. They will sell on-line for under $40. It’s a bargain and a perfect fit for any fishing budget. I’ve seen a lot of poor quality reels out there in that price range; that’s not the case with the KastKing Mela.”

San Francisco, CA, USA (January 19, 2016) — The year 2016 promises to be the Year of Accountability as corporate boards have to address serious questions about their companies’ defenses against security breaches and cybercrime. That’s the prediction of Greg Reber, CEO of AsTech Consulting, an 18-year-old cyber security consulting firm. Reber warns that board members as well as chief executives are going to be held more accountable by shareholders and regulatory agencies for inattention to cyber security weaknesses.

Last year the Federal Financial Institution Examination Council (FFIEC) released a new cyber-security assessment tool to help financial institutions move from a simple, “check-the-box” approach to security assessment to a more risk-based methodology, including specific milestones that boards have to meet at different maturity levels. This marks a new era in financial institution security oversight due to the specificity of the compliance framework. This move by the FFIEC puts corporate boards on notice as well as chief executives that cyber security is their responsibility.

“Data security breaches will continue to be more spectacular and more costly to business,” said Reber. “What is changing is the demand for more accountability. In addition to requiring that high level executives step down (such as the CEO of Target), we are going to see more boards of directors held responsible for security failures. Cyber security is a problem that will continue to escalate, resulting from emerging technologies being applied to cybercrime coupled with a lack of due diligence by senior management.”

Reber notes that there are multiple reasons that 2016 will become a year of increasing cyber security attacks:

1. Aging Internet applications – The World Wide Web is 23 years old in 2016 and many of today’s Web applications are built using source code that was developed before security risks were understood. These applications propagate security weaknesses unless they are specifically addressed in the source code, or by other means.

2. The rush to introduce new technology – Emerging technologies are creating new cyber security risks that are not well understood. The Internet of Things (IoT), for example, is driving a rush to market and many times cyber security is an afterthought. Adding security to new technology later rather than making it part of the initial development will leave ‘seams’ for security flaws.

3. Malicious ecommerce – Social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest have announced that they will be adding “buy” buttons to their sites. While this may attract more users and promote customer retention, it also will create new opportunities for cyber-fraud and identify theft.

Conversely, the good news for the coming year is that better analytics with more accurate predictive capabilities are coming to market every quarter. It is becoming easier to identify where hackers are likely to strike next, supplementing traditional enterprise security safeguards with predictive analytics and analytics-driven security methods.

“We have better analytics and predictive capability to head off more security problems, but companies still need to make cyber security a priority before they have to pay for the consequences of a cyber breach,” added Reber. “It’s more than a matter of adding more security detection tools; companies have to scrub their infrastructure to uncover legacy vulnerabilities. In the current regulatory climate, vulnerability discovery and remediation is much less expensive than paying the fines and legal fees, not to mention equity losses, that follow a systems hack.”

Market Rates Insight Introduces TrendSpotter, Providing Banks and Credit Unions with Competitive Fee Trend Data for Benchmarking

TrendSpotter Reports on National Trends for Checking, Savings, Money Market Accounts, and CDs on ATM, OD, NSF, Wire Transfer, and Monthly Service Charge.

Market Rates Insight

San Anselmo, CA, USA (January 17, 2016) — Market Rates Insight, Inc. (http://www.marketratesinsight.com), the leader in financial services pricing intelligence for deposits, personal loans, mortgages, and fees, today announced the release of TrendSpotter, a new research tool that captures quarterly retail fee trends for banks and credit unions nationwide.

TrendSpotter provides financial institutions with key intelligence by monitoring trends for retail deposit fees, features, and requirements in the marketplace. When combined with internal key performance indicators, this historical fee data enables banks and credit unions to monitor fee trends and their impact on sales volume and revenue.

TrendSpotter can provide valuable insight, and information to better predict the impact of fee changes. By using TrendSpotter for competitive benchmarking, financial institutions can overlay their own fee pricing to create a trend line that shows how the competition affects revenue, attrition, and volume for their own fee-based products. The tool provides an ability to configure a fee, feature, or requirement trend based on filters that allow the user to identify a specific institution by type or asset size. The tool’s flexibility provides the end user the ability to effectively track the competitive environment and impact of fee changes.

Samples of TrendSpotter data output include:

• ATM fees charged on foreign transactions (also includes waived and rebated fees)
• NSF/OD fees that can be filtered by market or size
• Minimum balance or combined balance requirements to waive monthly service charges
• Overdraft protection transfer fees

TrendSpotter is a unique tool that gives bank and credit union executives an understanding of retail deposit fee trends in the US marketplace. Data is extracted from Market Rates Insight’s FeeBuilder, the first database of live retail deposit fees on over 2,200 FIs that tracks live data on overdraft, non-sufficient funds, monthly service charges, ATM fees, wire transfer, on checking, money market, savings, and certificate of deposit.

“Fees continue to be an essential source of banking revenue, and TrendSpotter now gives bank executives the data they need to gain a true portrait of the competitive landscape for deposit fees,” said Rick Barham, founder and CEO of Market Rates Insight. “TrendSpotter not only tells you about specific competitors but gives you the bigger picture of market trends over time. Using TrendSpotter data, bankers can identify weaknesses in their pricing strategy and areas where they are overlooking potential fee revenues. There’s no other research tool like it on the market.”

TrendSpotter makes its observations at the national level, and is issued quarterly on an annual subscription basis. For more information, visit http://www.marketratesinsight.com.

Mi Rancho® Announces Passing of Patriarch Robert Berber Jr.

Bay Area Tortilla Company Now in Its Third Berber Generation with Ongoing Commitment to Founders’ Legacy of Traditional Methods, Food Purity and Quality.

Mi Rancho Logo

San Leandro, CA, USA — Mi Rancho® (http://www.mirancho.com), a Bay Area food innovator in the production and global distribution of tortillas and Mexican foods, today announced the passing of Robert Berber Jr. after losing his battle with cancer. Robert Berber Jr. leaves a legacy as a successful businessman and philanthropist as well as a family company, Mi Rancho, which has become a national brand. Mi Rancho is now managed by Robert’s son, Manuel Berber, who has served as president of the company since 1992.

Robert Berber Jr. is responsible for building Mi Rancho into the company it is today, manufacturing more than 1.3 billion tortillas each year. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Robert Berber Jr. moved to the Bay Area where in 1954 he and his father, Robert Berber Sr. purchased an Oakland Mexican grocery and panaderia noted for making delicious corn and flour tortillas and breads. Robert assumed sole ownership of the store in 1974 and through hard work and vision built Mi Rancho into a national tortilla brand that is respected for its quality, consistency and purity of ingredients.

The traditional methods of making tortillas used by Robert Berber Sr. and Robert Berber Jr. are still the foundation for the making of Mi Rancho products. Mi Rancho’s corn tortillas are made from whole kernel corn that is carefully cooked and steeped with lime for up to 10 hours. The corn is then stone-ground with lava stones for a unique texture and flavor. Mi Rancho also uses local ingredients grown in California, and it offers organic, non-GMO corn and flour tortillas.

“My father will be sorely missed by the Mi Rancho family and in the community,” said Manuel Berber, owner and President of Mi Rancho. “However, we intend to keep his legacy alive by continuing to use the same time-honored methods and whole ingredients we have used for the past 60 years, when my father and grandfather established the family business. We will continue to maintain our commitment to superior quality and exquisite taste as the company passes into the hands of my two sons, the fourth generation of Berbers.”

Robert Berber Jr. also was an active participant in the Bay Area community. He served on the Board of Directors for City Center Federal Savings, was active in the Orinda Rotary Club, and delivered food to those in need through Meals on Wheels. He also established a scholarship for underserved families at his alma mater, Cathedral High School in Los Angeles.

The Berber family has requested that those who wish to honor Robert Berber Jr.’s memory do so by making a donation to the John Muir Health Foundation, 1400 Treat Blvd., Walnut Creek, CA 94597 or online: https://www.johnmuirhealth.com/secure/make-a-donation.html.

About Mi Rancho
Mi Rancho® is an innovator in the specialty foods market specializing in tortillas and Mexican food products. Founded as a family-run Mexican bakery and grocery store in Oakland in 1939, Mi Rancho started to expand in the 1950s, providing tortillas to local restaurants. Today the company is now in its third generation and is still family owned and operated. Mi Rancho produces 4.5 million tortillas each day or 1.3 billion tortillas each year, serving various segments including food service, retail, industrial, and international. Despite Mi Rancho’s growth, the company is still operated with a passion for excellence and a commitment to produce the best quality tortillas made from local California ingredients.

SolaTrim™ Signs Hybrid Power Supply as First Canadian Distributor

SolaTrim Expands Market Reach for PV Protective Barriers with Calgary-based Value-added Distributor of Specialty Alternative Energy Products.

SolaTrim Logo

Sacramento, CA, USA (January 16, 2016) — SolaTrim™ LLC (http://www.solatrim.com), innovators in protective barriers to beautify and safeguard residential solar systems, today announced that the company has signed a distribution agreement with Hybrid Power Supply (http://www.hybridpowersupply.com) of Calgary, Alberta. With this new distribution agreement, SolaTrim not only expands its market presence into Canada but also opens up new sales opportunities in niche alternative energy applications.

Unlike many residential solar system distributors, Hybrid Power Supply targets specific channels and markets, including off-the-grid power systems, marine solar systems, and RV solar systems. The distributor maintains an intimate catalog and does not offer preconfigured residential solar system modules. Instead, they offer specialty products such as solar batteries, power inverters, controllers, and switches as well as solar panels that can be assembled into custom solar systems. Hybrid Power Supply considers itself a value-added solar distributor, offering product training, support, and warranty servicing to dealers and installers.

“We believe that protection of solar systems is something that’s been neglected by the industry for far too long,” said Haig Davis, president of Hybrid Power Supply. “We are excited to be bringing SolaTrim to Canada as now we have a product available to Canadian solar installers and homeowners that provides the last vital component in the residential solar installation and what’s great is SolaTrim does this in an aesthetically pleasing, easy to fit practical way.”

Hybrid Power Supply will be supplying solar installers across Canada with SolaTrim barriers. SolaTrim is an ideal addition to Hybrid Power Supply’s catalog of solar charge controllers, inverters, and batteries.

“We are delighted to have found a specialty distributor such as Hybrid Power Supply to help open the Canadian region, and introduce SolaTrim to new integrators serving niche markets,” said Bob Smith, co-founder and President of SolaTrim. “Canada is a burgeoning market for solar power, and SolaTrim barriers are ideal for keeping debris and pests from under solar arrays. SolaTrim also helps prevent rooftop snow loading and ice dams by preventing snow from accumulating under solar arrays in winter.”

SolaTrim is an all-weather aluminum barrier stiffened by design to resist warping or bending and diamond-stamped to facilitate airflow. The SolaTrim panels come with a peel-and-stick adhesive that attaches permanently to the solar frame and requires no drilling or clips that could negatively affect the system’s appearance or the solar module manufacturers’ warranty. The adhesive has been tested to withstand extreme weather conditions and will last for the life of the solar system so it will permanently prevent birds and rodents from nesting under the solar array, which can cause damage to the solar systems.

For more information, visit http://www.solartrim.com.

About SolaTrim
SolaTrim LLC is an innovator in providing new solutions to protect and beautify residential solar systems as well as protect the homeowner solar investment for the life of the system. The SolaTrim barrier system adds an attractive border to solar arrays while protecting the system from pests, debris and other environmental threats. Solar integrators across the country are turning to SolaTrim as a permanent solution that will beautify rooftop solar while reducing unnecessary service & warranty calls.

Headquartered in Sacramento, California, SolaTrim is committed to developing affordable, dependable, and attractive made-in-the-USA solar aftermarket products to support America’s renewable energy initiatives.

KastKing Sharky II Waterproofed Fishing Reel Announced

Patented waterproofing system and upgraded components added to best-seller to create the KastKing® Sharky II Spinning Reel.

Eposeidon KastKing

Garden City, Long Island, NY (January 11, 2016) — Today, KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc., introduces a unique KastKing® Sharky II spinning fishing reel model for 2016. KastKing® Sharky II, the successor of the KastKing® Sharky, underwent 3 years of development and holds 20 design patents. It is built to withstand harsh conditions and submersion for up to three minutes.

KastKing Sharky II

KastKing® Sharky II features 10 superior quality shielded stainless steel ball bearings and an instant stop anti-reverse bearing. As an upgrade to KastKing®’s best-selling Sharky spinning reel model, the KastKing® Sharky II received a new-design spool with waterproof carbon fiber drags that is stronger, 10% lighter, and casts 10% farther than its predecessor. KastKing Sharky II has a best-in-class carbon fiber drag system rated up to an exceptional 41.5 lbs. / 19 kg. of maximum drag, and the strength of its brass gears were increased by 30%. KastKing® Sharky II’s handle cogs were re-engineered for a more exact fit. Reinforcement was added to the reel body for less torsional flex, yet it remains light weight for its size and features. The Sharky II 4000, which generates 28.5 lbs/ 13 kg of drag, weighs in at 11.1 ounces/ 317 grams while the Sharky II 6000 has 41.5 lbs. / 19 kg. of drag.

“KastKing took the best-selling Sharky spinning reel and made it more spectacular! The new KastKing® Sharky II reel is lighter, stronger, and is now dunk-proof. Sharky II has a patented design waterproofing seal system that repels a three-minute plunge and keeps on fishing,” says Eposeidon marketing director, Tom Gahan. “Kayak anglers and saltwater surf fishing fans, whose fishing tackle tends to get soaked, will love the Sharky II spinning reel’s features.”

“For kayak fishing the probability of dunking your gear is higher than for most other types of fishing,” says Team Eposeidon Angler Consultant Shane Coovert in Kingswood, TX who won the Corpus Christi KATS (Kayak Angler Tournament Series) last September. “With the KastKing® Sharkey II being dunk proof for up to three minutes, it gives you plenty of time to retrieve your fishing tackle setup should you lose it.”

“The factory successfully tested the Sharky II for immersion up to 5 minutes, but we wish to remain conservative in our claims,” added Gahan.

KastKing® Sharky II is saltwater approved and has a one-year warranty. It has an interchangeable right-handed or left-handed interchangeable handle and is available in 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, and 6000 series sizes. The 6000 is fitted with a T-grip handle. KastKing® Sharky II Spinning Reel MSRPs are: 2000 – $65.98, 3000 – $69.98, 4000 – $71.98, 5000 – $78.98, and 6000 – $94.98. All models have been deeply discounted for the product launch and will continue to sell at discounted prices through http://www.amazon.com/kastking and other select online retailers.

T5 Data Centers Breaks Ground on New Build-to-Suit Data Center at Kings Mountain Campus

New Custom-Designed Data Center Contract Reaffirms T5’s Expertise in the Design and Construction of Build-to-Suit, High-Performance Data Centers.

T5 Data Centers Logo

Kings Mountain, NC, USA (January 6, 2016) — T5 Data Centers™, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, has broken ground on a new build-to-suit data center at its Kings Mountain, North Carolina, campus. Construction of the new enterprise-grade data center follows an exhaustive national search led by Kristina Metzger, Data Center Specialist at CBRE Data Center Solutions on behalf of an unnamed Fortune 50 company.

T5 Data Centers won the competitive bid for this build-to-suit contract after meeting and exceeding the stringent specifications outlined in a comprehensive Basis of Design and RFP. “Following a highly competitive process, T5 was ultimately selected as the right solution based on their extensive expertise in build-to-suit enterprise data centers, the company’s ability to meet and exceed a rigorous set of requirements, and because T5@Kings Mountain proved to be an ideal location,” said Kristina Metzger of CBRE. Ultimately T5 Data Centers will achieve several Uptime Institute Certifications including: Tier III Certification of Design Documents, Tier III Certification of Constructed Facility, and Tier III Gold Certification of Operational Sustainability.

In addition to T5’s design and engineering team having responsibility for the facility’s construction, T5 Facilities Management (T5FM) will be responsible for on-site building operations management and systems support.

“This new contract is a real testament to the discerning customer’s recognition of T5’s expertise and excellence in building and operating true enterprise quality data center environments. We brought a solution to the table that included design and construction expertise, a proven data center location, and best-in-class facilities management capabilities,” said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Operating Officer for T5 Data Centers.

T5 has been designing and building customized data centers from the ground up for 20 years. The company recently completed a similar project for a tenant at its T5@Portland campus. T5 Data Centers maintains seven data center campuses strategically situated across the country. T5’s Kings Mountain campus has the added advantage of being located in North Carolina, since the state recently passed the North Carolina Competes Act, which includes tax incentives for data center operations, including power and equipment.

KastKing® Carbon Baitcasting Reel Makes Debut

The KastKing® Stealth low-profile carbon baitcasting reel, built with rigid carbon construction technology and aerospace grade aluminum components, tips the scales at an affordable price.

Eposeidon KastKing

Garden City, Long Island, NY (January 5, 2016) — Today in Garden City, Long Island, New York, KastKing®, a division of Eposeidon, Inc., launched a new unique carbon composition low-profile carbon baitcasting reel for 2016, the KastKing® Stealth.

KastKing®’s Stealth is a high performance, super lightweight carbon baitcasting fishing reel that offers anglers a superior high-tech component reel that sells for far less than most low profile baitcaster reel models from other brands.

Outstanding elements of the KastKing® Stealth carbon baitcaster include carbon side plates and frame, carbon fiber handle with flat-paddle EVA grips, and carbon fiber drag system. Other components such as its CNC machined and lightened spool, which spins effortlessly on a stainless steel spool shaft, are crafted from aerospace grade aluminum. The KastKing® Stealth carbon baitcaster is impressive with 11 stainless steel shielded ball bearings and an instant lock anti-reverse roller bearing. To further save weight Stealth designers also opted for a hardened aerospace-grade aluminum micro mesh gear system that drives a versatile high speed 7.0:1 gear ratio.

“There is nothing else out there that has Stealth’s array of features at its price point,” says Tom Gahan, marketing director at Eposeidon. “Any other brand offering a carbon baitcasting reel with any carbon materials cost two or three times more than a Stealth baitcaster. As soon as we saw the high-end design features, the jet turbine-shaped carbon drag star adjuster and its flat-black Stealth fighter aircraft color…the Stealth name stuck. Everything about the KastKing® Stealth carbon baitcasting reel is a knockout, including the price.”

KastKing® Stealth fishing reels are available in right and left handle models, has a spool capacity of 165 yards of 12 lb. test line and is finished in matte carbon black with gold highlights. Stealth low profile carbon baitcasting reels are 100% corrosion resistant and are saltwater fishing approved. They have a one-year warranty. Stealth MSRP is $89.98, but will be discounted to retail at $59.98 USD through Amazon http://www.amazon.com/kastking, and other select online retailers.

Tate Cui, Eposeidon’s CEO stated, “Once again KastKing® has come through for the angler. KastKing® Stealth carbon baitcasters are a high quality, state-of-the-art carbon baitcasting reel at an affordable price. It sacrifices nothing. An exceptional feature of the Stealth is its unprecedented seven braking magnets in the dual brake system. Baitcaster reels typically only have five or fewer brake magnets. Stealth is a dream baitcaster reel for anglers.”
