DREAM Appeals to Those Studying Abroad: VeepWorks Pilots DREAM App with Midwestern State University Student at the Reigns

DREAM is a situational awareness mobile application intended for a variety of use cases, one being a group locator.

Dallas, TX, USA — It is every parent’s best and worst day when they send their college student to study abroad. They beam with pride that their child can experience the richness of a new culture; however, that same feeling can be met with high anxiety. Who can match the vigorousness of a parent’s watch when they’re outside of reach? No one. But, technology can.

It is called DREAM.

DREAM is a situational awareness mobile application intended for a variety of use cases, one being a group locator. In the instance where students are roaming a new country, eating at new places, and separating for individual interests, it becomes even more important to know where each person is – even if they are only a mile away.

VeepWorks is the Dallas-based firm behind the technology. It wasn’t by chance that they met Kara McIntyre, a Mass Communication senior at Midwestern State University, to extend the company’s public safety mission. Kara left for London on July 6, 2017 with her university’s study abroad program.

Away from the familiarity of Wichita Falls, Texas, safety will be more important than ever. In an effort to capitalize on the application’s use while she’s abroad, Kara will be using DREAM to stay connected with her classmates, all the while putting those closest to her at ease. “[The concern is] with our safety and how we can be more aware of our surroundings,” stated Kara.

“Kara represents the generation where technology is second nature,” stated VeepWorks’ Founder and CEO, Aaron Madolora. “It works on both iPhone and Android devices and empowers students like her to explore the world confidently and privately knowing that her DREAM network of friends and family are a push of a button away.”

Feedback towards DREAM has been positive and noted as one of the best mobile apps to use in emergency situations. Taking precautions as a student studying abroad demonstrates just one use case.

Downloads to date of the DREAM app has multiplied since January 2017 from 5,000 to 40,000 users.

Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa Launches Exciting New Wedding Packages, from Indian to LGBT Weddings

The Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa has launched a number exciting new wedding packages available at the resort hotel, including Indian and Southeast Asian, LGBT and mid-week weddings, as well as a unique “Elopement Package.”

Monterey, CA, July 09, 2017 — The Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa has launched a number exciting new wedding packages available at the resort hotel, including Indian and Southeast Asian, LGBT and mid-week weddings, as well as a unique “Elopement Package.”

For example, an Indian wedding would include a perfect path for a baraat and ample space for Mendhi and post-wedding brunch in addition to such inducements as the largest ballroom in Monterey County, with capacity for up to 800 seated guests, the ability to bring in outside caterers, complimentary honeymoon suite for the newlyweds, a large garden terrace for your ceremony and cocktail reception, as well as 550 rooms, including 32 suites and a Villa, with group rates — making it perfect for multi-day long celebrations, all with complimentary parking.

The 2017 Elopement Package includes an intimate, romantic wedding for you and up to 10 guests. Hyatt’s on-site wedding specialist has put together an affordable Elopement Package, including a Garden Courtyard Terrace ceremony with officiant, bride bouquet, cake for two, a bottle of sparkling wine, photography, and a wedding suite.

Weddings at Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa

Walking past the fountain entryway into the Hyatt Regency Monterey’s Fireplace Lounge, you instantly feel yourself relaxing amid the resort’s sophisticated comforts, natural materials and soothing earth tones. Take it from us, the skylit Lounge is an inviting spot to while away a pleasant hour, quaffing a local vintage from their wine cellar along with tasty appetizers by their acclaimed farm-to-table bistro, TusCA Ristorante.

While the innovative food and drink are delicious, the resort boasts a bounty of recreational activities, like their full-service Racquet Club, 2000-square-foot Fitness Center and neighboring Del Monte Golf Course. Two sparkling pools surrounded by gardens beckon swimmers and sunbathers alike. Rent a bicycle to tour the scenic grounds, or take the trails that skirt the nearby bay up to historic Cannery Row. (The hotel’s Les Clefs d’Or Concierge can arrange everything from Aquarium tickets to wine tasting.)

With so much to entice and entertain, you don’t need an excuse to visit this resort. But if you’ve come to celebrate a special occasion, then you’ll be delighted by the expert service and range of venue options.

The Regency Grand Ballroom, the largest in the county, can host a gala dinner for 600 and still have plenty of room for dancing. Soft teal blue-and-beige décor reflect Monterey’s serene coastal palette; high ceilings with inset lighting bays and a bank of windows provide gentle illumination. The adjoining foyer opens to a terrace with a retractable awning, perfect for an indoor/outdoor social hour.

For a more intimate setting, the Monterey Ballroom still holds up to 400 guests but can be reduced to accommodate as few as 25. While the Regency takes its inspiration from the sea and sky, the Monterey recalls the region’s mountains and meadows: Rustic hues are enlivened with a sunny yellow reminiscent of springtime daffodils. An adjacent patio increases your staging possibilities.

Open-air receptions are sometimes celebrated on the Garden Terrace, which can also be tented. The bridal party and guests may reserve the rooms overlooking this courtyard, which offers convenience to the ceremony and is close to the celebration.

Your nearest and dearest will thank you for their mini-vacation, which includes plush, contemporary accommodations. Newlyweds receive a complimentary suite for their wedding night, but for the ultimate indulgence splurge on a Villa, a four-bedroom oasis with its own private lanai and swimming pool! This secluded hideaway can host up to 50 guests for your rehearsal dinner or cocktail party in high style.
