First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book, “Accidental Dad” by Joshua McDowell

Accidental Dad, by Joshua McDowell, exposes the harsh realities of being a single father in today’s world.

First Edition Design POD & eBook Publishing

Toledo, OH, USA — Joshua McDowell’s Accidental Dad introduces a single father on a mission. He believes being a parent is the most rewarding experience in the world. For that reason, he wants you to help him change the family court system. A must read for young fathers and potential young fathers alike.

Accidental Dad

Each year, millions of children grow up in fatherless homes, resulting in teen pregnancies, school dropouts, depression, and suicide. Each child wants, needs, and deserves to grow up with a strong relationship with both parents.

McDowell is not an expert in conventional terms, but he knows how it felt to grow up without his father, and he also knows how it feels for a single father to have to deal with the court system that can make a father feel worthless. He shares firsthand information about our family courts to provide a clear understanding of the bias in courts across this country against fathers who want custody of their children. Joshua McDowell is handing us all a challenge. Help McDowell change the world, and help bring loving, caring, good fathers back to the head of household!

“Contrary to popular belief, many single fathers are getting the short end of the stick. I dedicate this book to all single fathers who truly love their children and want to be a major part of their lives. My son is my life, yet there were days in court when I would get so frustrated, so angry, and so tired of battling the bias against fathers – against me – that I was almost willing to walk away from it all. Fortunately I didn’t, and neither should you. Never give up hope.” ~Josh McDowell

Genre – Child Support, Custody, Visitation, Fathers Rights

The total power output for the new solar system is 521.5 kW of DC power, with an annual power capacity of 843,336 kWh. The new solar installation will not only deliver all of the power needed for YKK’s Anaheim plant, but it will also help fulfill the YKK’s mission of environmental protection and sustainability for its global operations.

“This is the first solar system we designed and installed for YKK and we are extremely proud of this project,” said Rick Hsu, CEO of SunGreen Systems. “This solar installation will be able to meet all of YKK’s power requirements and is part of this fastener company’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gases and promoting sustainable operations worldwide.”

The new YKK solar system will offset 896 tons of carbon dioxide annually, or an estimated 27,000 tons of CO2 over the life of the solar system. That’s the equivalent of planting 4,484 trees each year or 134,520 trees over the life of the system.

T5 Data Centers Receives Tax Exemption for New Build-to-Suit Data Center at Kings Mountain Campus

North Carolina Competes Act HB 117 Gives New Kings Mountain Data Center Tenants Millions of Dollars in Tax Exemptions for Both Construction and Operations.

T5 Data Centers Logo

Kings Mountain, NC, USA — T5 Data Centers™, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, has been granted tax exempt status by the state of North Carolina for its new build-to-suit project at the company’s King’s Mountain Data Center campus. The tax incentive was awarded under the recently enacted HB 117, the North Carolina Competes Act, which grants tax privileges specifically to data centers, and will provide tax exemption for both data center construction and operations.

Under the tax exemption umbrella, T5 Data Centers is exempt from paying sales or use taxes on major equipment and supporting infrastructure during construction of the new build-to-suit data center. The savings during construction are expected to be significant for T5 as well as for T5’s customers. It also means that T5 Data Centers and its new customer will be exempt from taxes related to data hall IT deployments and facility operations, which includes expenses for servers, hardware, equipment, and taxes on electricity. To qualify for the tax exemption, a cumulative anticipated investment of $75 million has to be made in the data center over five years.

“With the new data center tax incentives, North Carolina becomes an even better location for companies seeking to build a high-performance data center facility,” said Robbie Sovie, Vice President of Construction Services. “The tax savings during the construction phase are substantial, and our customers are already talking about reallocating those tax savings to assist with continued investment in the Kings Mountain data center. This new tax incentive package continues to make North Carolina one of the most cost-effective locations to build and operate a data center.”

The tax exemption savings new Kings Mountain tenants receive under HB 117 are in addition to the agreements T5 Data Centers has negotiated with the City of Kings Mountain and Cleveland County for 30-year rebates on real and personal property. The combined tax incentives make T5’s Kings Mountain campus an attractive location for data center investment.

The new solar power system is expected to provide 93 percent of the company’s current electrical load.

SunGreen Systems designed and installed the premium solar array consisting of 768 solar panels for Allstate Floral, which is one of the top importers of beautiful silk and artificial flowers, greenery, and home accessories. The solar panels were provided by Mitsubishi Electric and the completed solar system delivers 203.52 watts of DC power with an annual production of 330,997 kWh.
