LAN System, a leading Atlanta Computer Support company, presented the topics of Smart Grid and Network Security at the 2010 Southeastern Distribution Apparatus School.

Norcross, GA, October 05, 2010 — LAN System, a leading Atlanta Computer Support company, presented the topics of Smart Grid and Network Security at the 2010 Southeastern Distribution Apparatus School. Smart Grid topics and initiatives were the focus at this year’s school.

A Smart Grid primer class was taught by Chuck Newton of Newton-Evans Research Group and Mary Hester of LAN Systems. Topics included what utilities are currently doing to support the grid and a discussion of initiatives to incorporate the latest technology for electric utilities. SCADA, communication, monitoring and database systems will all benefit from the increased priority and awareness of the importance of the power grid. For years, utilities have implemented technologies that contribute to an autonomous grid. “The Intelligent or Smart Grid is not a new concept for electric utilities,” said LAN Systems CEO, Mary Hester. ( ) “Utilities have been working toward this goal for many years. With the support of government and consumers, our dream of a smart, secure grid is closer than ever.”

In addition to the Smart Grid primer, a class on Network Security was taught by LAN Systems ( ) Senior Systems Engineer, Forrest Thompson. The course centered on protecting computer systems from outside attacks by securing the system and training users. Threats like viruses and malware were discussed with specific examples. Forrest stressed practicing safe computing and offered tips on how to keep from falling victim to common attacks.
The utility industry recognizes the vastness of considerations that are part of Smart Grid. Schools and seminars, like the SE Distribution Apparatus School, provide a unique opportunity for utility professionals to learn about the latest technology and discuss the most relevant issues.

About Southeastern Distribution Apparatus School:
The Southeastern Distribution Apparatus School & Conference is sponsored by Utility Technology Association. The school provides a forum for electric utility personnel to discuss best practices, procedures, new technologies, and common problems with peers and representatives from industry.

Bambi Day Care Center Press Release

Bambi Day Care Center is the initial subdivision of the greater institution — Bambi Academy, which comprises the daycare centers, the Big Apple Academy K-12, the Alpha Summer Camp and the Dolphin Swimming School in New York. The daycare centers have several convenient locations in quiet residential areas of Brooklyn and are proud to be among the best daycare centers New York City can offer.
At Bambi Day Care, as childcare professionals we keep up to date with the latest trends in the field of child development. We firmly believe that each child is a unique person, and development is dependent on many factors. Therefore our child care programs support the idea that children should have their natural curiosity nurtured through an authentic, integrated, play-based approach. We realize that a curriculum framework that is designed to be universal to all children only leads to optimal development when teachers respect and respond to the learning opportunities of each individual child. Each child is born with individual traits and this is the reason for our strong belief that caregivers cannot have one single strategy for all the children in their care. We try to personalize and tailor our interactions and our programs to fit each child’s needs, keeping in mind their likes and dislikes.
Education and upbringing in our daycare center is centered around a child’s personality. We focus on children’s self-discovery, self-development and self-realization. We use the latest methods of teaching preschool age children along with the childcare programs that have been tested for years and proven to be most effective. At our day care centers each child can enjoy wonderful books, attractive toys, spacious and well-equipped playgrounds. Your child will be under the supervision of nurturing, highly educated caregivers at all times in our infant daycare.
Our children very enthusiastically take part in various contests and concerts which are prepared for all major holidays. Children love singing and dancing, and these activities help them develop their creativity thus developing their intellect. Children successfully develop their language skills through communicating with their teachers who are always interested in what the little ones have to say.
We are proud of the fact that we can form beginning knowledge and skills which will serve as a foundation for your children’s future. Children develop their motor skills, learn numbers and letters, start working with basic mathematical operations, such as addition and subtraction, learn new words to expand their vocabulary and gain the ability to eloquently express themselves. They also learn many facts about the world around them.
Our daycare graduates are perfectly ready for Kindergarten at the age of 5 because we organize our classes based on the fundamental principles of early childhood education. Children are taught through play, and they learn new skills naturally.
Our daycare centers are open for children ages 2 through 5, Monday through Friday, from 7.30 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. We also provide transportation from Brooklyn, Queens, and Staten Island.

Hard Money Lender in the San Francisco Bay Area Helps Five Homeowners From Foreclosure

Lending criteria for hard money mortgages are fairly simple. The loan is based on the value of the subject property either real estate owned or about to be purchased by a borrower.

Santa Rosa, CA, October 04, 2010 — We need Private money loans in California from $100,000, and up to 10,000,000 we love both commercial and residential ( ) and we are a fast funding outfit that bases our loans entierely on equity. We are California # 1 equity based lender and have just decided to raise our loan to value from 65% to 70% loan to value of the property. In general, hard money mortgages are used for commercial purposes. However, they can also be applied to residential properties. In this instance, the loan is generally referred to by its more genteel name: a non-conforming mortgage.

Lending criteria for hard money mortgages ( ) are fairly simple. The loan is based on the value of the subject property either real estate owned or about to be purchased by a borrower. If the borrower is buying property, the “value” of the real estate is defined as the actual purchase price of the property. If the borrower needs hard money for a refinance situation, the value is determined by a written real estate appraisal.

If you are looking for a hard money refinance loan, the lender will want to know when you purchased the property and what you paid for it. If you bought a property a month ago for a specific sum, the lender will be disinclined to lend you more than that purchase price. Once you own the property for about a year, especially if you have put some money, sweat equity, or both into the property, ( ) you can get a new appraisal and get a loan based on the new, improved value of the property. This is called seasoning. Be sure you have seasoned your property for 3 months before going out for a refinance mortgage at a significantly higher value figure than what you paid for it.

Once it has three months seasononing we fund loans to borrowers with unique challenges, and who do not have the time or are unable to seek financing from traditional banking sources. We utilize our own resources to fund loans – when we commit, you may be confident of the timing and outcome we promise and we deliver on our word.

NO Rules! ( ) does not underwrite loans for a secondary market. We make the rules and use our experience to make loans happen. Simply put we are the bank our vast group of investors have been working with us for the past 20 years and trust us to evaluate the equity position we are taking on. We are a equity based lender ,we care not about credit scores, previous foreclosure and/or bankruptcy with us all borrowers are the same depending on down payment or the equity position ( ) we hold as collateral.

What kind of interest rate can I expect from an equity loan?
Most borrowers can typically expect an interest rate of 9% to 15% for their private money loans.

Will my credit score affect my eligibility?
No. This is one of the most important differences between us and banks or mortgage brokers. Your credit score does not affect your elifibility.

Yes, however the closing costs can be paid through the loan proceeds.
