T5 Data Centers Signs County of Los Angeles as Newest Tenant for T5@LA Data Center Facility

County of Los Angeles Migrates from Its Own Data Center to T5@LA to take Advantage of Turnkey Infrastructure Support, Cost Savings, and Expandability.

Los Angeles, CA, USA — T5 Data Centers™ (http://www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, has signed the County of Los Angeles as the newest tenant for the company’s T5@LA customizable data center. The County will be migrating its data center operations from its own facility to T5@LA to take advantage of the infrastructure support and cost savings offered by T5’s wholesale data center, as well as the potential for future expansion.

The LA County Board of Supervisors directed an assessment of options to replace the existing outdated data center with either a build, buy, or lease solution. After performing a cost analysis, the County determined that leasing a wholesale data center facility would offer greater flexibility and prove more cost effective than upgrading its current data center operation. After an extensive search, Los Angeles County selected T5@LA because of its secure environment, redundant power systems, and seismic reinforcement, as well as its strategic location. The T5@LA facility also fulfilled the County’s immediate operational needs, providing a ready-to-occupy location customizable to their needs with energy and water efficient environment control systems.

“Winning the County of Los Angeles as a customer validates T5’s market advantage – our wholesale data centers are more robust and cost-effective than maintaining your own data center facilities,” said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Operating Officer for T5 Data Centers. “This latest contract also demonstrates that our T5@LA facility is in the right location with the right capabilities for customers throughout the Los Angeles market who need mission-critical computing support.”

Like all T5 wholesale data centers, T5@LA offers a fully customizable facility that gives customers total control over MEP technology and design. Each data suite is completely autonomous, separated by slab-to-deck, fire-rated walls for secure operations. The T5@LA data center also meets HIPAA, HITECH, and PCI regulations and provides a highly secure operating environment.

Honey for your Honey this Valentine’s Day! Love is Sweet. Pure, Raw Honey From Carmel Honey Company, Started by 11-Year-Old Carmel Student, is the Perfect Gift for your Honey on Valentine’s Day

Sweet as can Bee! Honey from Carmel Honey Company, founded by 14-year-old Carmel student Jake Reisdorf who was 11 at the time, is the perfect heart healthy treat for your honey this Valentine’s Day!

Carmel, CA, January 10, 2017 — Sweet as can Bee! Honey from Carmel Honey Company, founded by 14-year-old Carmel student Jake Reisdorf who was 11 at the time, is the perfect heart healthy treat for your honey this Valentine’s Day! This golden liquid, created and stored by some of the smallest and most industrious members of the natural kingdom, has come to stand for all that is sweet and desirable in the world.

Honey in History

Apiculture, or bee-keeping, dates back to 700 BC, but man’s desire for the bee’s precious nectar goes back much further than that — a 10,000-year-old rock painting in Spain depicts two human figures on a ladder collecting honey from a wild hive. In 2100 BC, honey was mentioned in the sacred writings of Egypt and India; in the Old Testament, the Promised Land is described as “the land of milk and honey”. And mythological rumor has it that In Greek mythology, it is said that Cupid dipped the tips of his “love arrows” in honey to fill the lovers hearts with sweetness.

Honey and Health

The amazing benefits found in honey include antioxidant and anti-microbial properties that are unique to this all-natural sweetener. Honey has also been used for centuries as a natural, fragrant and wholly pleasing beauty treatment, due to its humectant qualities and silky feel. It is said that Cleopatra herself owed much of her legendary beauty to a daily infusion of golden honey.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, be sure to treat your special someone to the gold standard of what has become sweet and desirable in the world this Valentine’s Day — honey! Carmel Honey Company has four types of honey currently available — Sage Honey, Wildflower Honey, Orange Blossom Honey and Meadowfoam Honey. Carmel Honey Company provides all-natural, pure, raw, premium honey that is harvested straight from the hive.

And Reisdorf, as part of his “Jake Gives Back” program, donates a portion of his honey sales proceeds to organizations that are expanding research and education efforts by addressing the production, nutritional value, health benefits, economics, and/or quality standards of honey bees and honey.

“I’m just an average 14-year-old who likes honey bees,” Reisdorf told California Bountiful magazine. “With beekeeping, you are helping the environment and it is really fun and interesting. I’m all about the education and practicing beekeeping and doing honey. The message that I want everyone to know is: If the bees go, we go, so help save the bees.”

In addition to individual jars of honey, Carmel Honey Company offers three special packages perfect for your honey this Valentine’s Day: Carmel Honey Company Honey Sampler, Honeycomb and Honey Stix.

The Sampler is the ideal way to sample all four pure, raw, premium honey varietals. This set includes 3-oz. jars of Sage Honey, Wildflower Honey, Orange Blossom Honey and Meadowfoam Honey.

They are packaged ready for gift giving in an elegant clear gift bag and red bow. There is a special gift box available only on the website for Valentine’s Day.

Honeycomb is the absolute purest form of honey. Circular frames are placed inside the beehive and the honey bees instinctively know to build it out first with wax, then fill it with honey. Since the honey bees make the wax and honey, the 8-oz rounds are 100% edible. Harvested individually at different times, from a variety of hives, no two rounds will taste exactly the same. These honeycombs are delicious on a cheese board or cut and placed over soft-serve ice cream. Also an excellent gift for the foodie in your life.

Honey Stix offer a great boost of energy in a convenient package. In a lunchbox or purse this 12-pack is an easy way to curb sweet cravings the natural way. Filled with the Wildflower Honey varietal, each Stix contains 1 teaspoon of honey. Excellent portion control for tea and coffee and also an ideal stocking stuffer or unique gift for all ages.

And remember, when you purchase a jar of honey from the Carmel Honey Company, (or place a honey bee pollination hive in your backyard), you have contributed to the research and education of the public on the importance of pollination and the benefits of the honey bee.

Carmel Honey Company honey can be purchased directly from the website (which grew out of his elementary class project) at www.carmelhoneycompany.com.

Valentine’s Day Recipe:

Baklava

· 1 package store bought Phyllo Dough (from frozen section)

· 4 cups Chopped Nuts (walnuts/almonds preferred, but whatever you have on hand)

· 1 teaspoon Cinnamon

· 1 plus 1/2 stick Butter, melted (FYI – you’ll probably need more)

· 2 cups Carmel Honey Company Wildflower Honey

· 1/2 cup Water

· 1/2 cup Sugar

· 3 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Directions:

Remove frozen phyllo dough package from freezer and refrigerate for 24 hours to thaw.

Set at room temperature at least 1 hour before using.

Melt ½ stick butter. Set aside.

Remove the phyllo sheets as needed keeping other sheets covered under a damp cloth.

Toss together nuts and cinnamon. Set aside.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter a rectangular baking pan. Trim phyllo stack to fit pan.

Place sheet of phyllo in pan and brush with melted butter. Repeat 4 times for a total of five sheets.

Sprinkle nuts to make a single thin layer.

Butter three sheets of phyllo and place on top of nuts. Add layer of nuts and buttered sheets.

Repeat, until you’re out of nuts (keep in mind next (final) step)

Top with at least 4 buttered phyllo sheets, to ending with a buttered top.

Cut a diagonal diamond pattern (or in simple squares) using a very sharp knife.

Bake for 45 minutes, or until golden brown.

While Baklava is baking, combine butter, honey, water, sugar, and vanilla in saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low.

After removing Baklava from oven, IMMEDIATELY drizzle half the saucepan evenly over top, allowing pan to sit/absorb for a few minutes. Then drizzle remaining sauce until thoroughly moistened.

Allow Baklava to cool, uncovered, for several hours to set.

Eat, Share, Gift, Enjoy!

About Jake and Carmel Honey Company:

Jake Reisdorf is the chief beekeeper and owner of Carmel Honey Company, which he started as part of a school project where his teacher assigned professions to each student and directed them to research the profession and build a presentation on it.

While researching his assigned profession of website designer, Jake, 11 years old at the time, decided to take it one step further and actually create a real website. At that time, Jake had taken one beekeeping class with his Dad and thought it would be cool to design a website about honey bees.

Not only did Jake get an “A” on the project, but it inspired him and spurred him to start Carmel Honey Company. That was three years ago.

His passion for honey bees grew as he learned about Colony Collapse Disorder and real honey. Expanding his research and education drove Jake to learn more about honey and bees and ultimately decide it was critical to give back.

In addition, Jake places hives on residential and commercial properties to raise awareness and encourage others to support the honey bee.

The “Jake Gives Back” program includes sharing honey bee knowledge with kids and adults of all ages. Whether he is in a classroom speaking to first-grade students, or at a corporate event talking with business owners and seasoned professionals, his passion and appreciation of how honey bees impact our world is infectious. He also “gives back” by making a financial donation to honey bee research and education organizations.

Jake currently attends 8th grade at Carmel Middle School and keeps his knowledge of Apiology (the scientific study of bees) current by continuing to manage his own honey bee hives and attending industry conferences throughout the country.

Fulham Introduces WorkHorse LED Extreme Driver Family for Outdoor and High-Power Lighting Applications

First Drivers to Feature Integrated Wireless Controls for Easy Configuration and Installation.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has released the WorkHorse LED Extreme family of constant current, programmable drivers specifically designed for outdoor and high-power applications. WorkHorse LED Extreme drivers are intelligent, programmable LED drivers built for harsh environments.

The WorkHorse LED Extreme family is composed of two series of drivers: XP and XE. The XP Series includes the industry’s first outdoor LED drivers with integrated wireless controls to simplify customization and field installation. The WorkHorse LED XE Series offers output current programming up to 5000mA. Both series are rated IP65.

The new WorkHorse LED XP Series drivers are available in five power configurations: 40W, 60W, 100W, 150W, and 200W. The high-power WorkHorse LED units have MCU controlled circuitry, including MCU controlled health monitoring that allows for black box data to be captured for field analysis. The integrated wireless versions support Tvilight’s City Manager control software, a key building block for Smart Cities. The 0-10V dimming versions support dimming to 10% power. All XP Series drivers can be programmed with custom dimming curves, custom NTC thermal feedback, and power output. Tunable output power enables the drivers to be substituted into luminaires without affecting performance or lumen output.

All high-power WorkHorse LED XP Series drivers include intelligent driver over temperature protection, as well as intelligent module over temperature protection via NTC input to promote an extended useful life.

The new WorkHorse LED XE Series drivers are available in two output configurations: 96W and 185W. The drivers support 0-10V dimming and programmable output current.

All WorkHorse LED Extreme drivers are configured using a handheld programmer or PC with Fulham’s SmartSet computer software. These tools address one of the primary challenges facing LED luminaire manufacturers – how to tune the driver’s output current to achieve optimal efficiency and performance.

“Programmable outdoor lighting is part of Fulham’s vision of a future with clever, connected, controlled lighting,” said Alvaro Garcia, Product Director for LED & Emergency Drivers at Fulham. “Our new programmable WorkHorse LED drivers can be adapted for any harsh environment lighting application, including outdoor and retrofits, and since we offer the widest voltage range in the industry, our customers can stock fewer SKUs without limiting their inventory’s capabilities. We see this kind of clever, programmable lighting solution claiming more market attention in the years ahead.”

WorkHorse LED Extreme drivers carry an IP65 rating, 6kV or 4kV of internal surge protection and come with a five-year warranty. Products support either 347VAC or universal voltage input, for operation around the world.

These models are available from Fulham locations worldwide. For more information, visit http://www.fulham.com.

Eventually, Evie began to explore her fascination and her work blossomed into her current mesmerizing style.

Located at 2658 S. Cherokee Way, in Palm Springs’ historic Backstreet Art District, Fusion Art is one of an assortment of artist-owned galleries and working studios that feature diverse collections of original, contemporary art by locally, nationally & internationally recognized artists. The Backstreet Art District is located just off Hwy 111 (behind the Mercedes Dealership and the Estate Sale).

Fusion Art promotes and connects emerging and established artists with collectors and art enthusiasts, while offering the opportunity to participate in art experiences, art related education, engage in dialogue with artists, and purchase fine works of art.
