Aurelio’s Pizza Crown Point becomes a Shop Local Network Mission Partner

Aurelio’s Pizza, located at 1900 N. Main St in Crown Point, is the perfect place to go for great customer service and even better food.

Crown Point, IN, August 30, 2018 – Aurelio’s Pizza, located at 1900 N. Main St in Crown Point, is the perfect place to go for great customer service and even better food. Nick Bello, president of The Shop Local Network stated, “I consider myself a pizza expert and Aurelio’s is one of the best. You can tell they use only the best ingredients.”

On August 20, 1959, the first Aurelio’s Pizza opened its doors at 2041 Ridge Rd in Homewood, Illinois. This small storefront had just enough room for about 4 tables and a small kitchen with one pizza oven. In 1959, Pizza was a relatively new concept. Joe would sell 6 or 7 pizzas a day, but Joe’s home cooked Italian beef sandwiches kept him going. Joe made some changes to the dough and sauce recipe and began using fresh, homemade Italian sausage rather than pre-cooking it. These changes made quite a difference and pizza sales began to grow. Joe persevered by working 7 days a week, as cook, waiter and delivery guy, while building his reputation and customer loyalty day by day, one customer at a time.

Aurelio’s Pizza in Crown Point offers a wide variety of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas, and desserts. They also have a mobile app to be able to win rewards.

“This place makes incredible pizzas, especially their thin crust. Whatever cheese blend they’re using is amazing. And they aren’t shy with the toppings; they pile them on. We had their chicken wings to start, which had great flavor and some good spicy heat. We had four hungry people in our party and ordered way too much food. The thin crust fiesta size pizza is their largest and can easily feed 4-6 people. Their medium thin crust can feed 3-4. And their 10″ stuffed pizza can feed 2-3. Super fresh ingredients and the flavor and toppings were so well balanced. Their wait staff was so friendly and helpful. The facility and restrooms are clean. AND, bonus: they have a pinball machine in the back! Next time I’m in Crown Point, I will definitely stop by.” Jenna A. said.

So, are you ready to have a new favorite pizza place? Stop in to Aurelio’s today to see what they have for you! Give them a call or go to their website for more information.

Monterey Symphony’s 2018-2019 Season, ‘Sound Waves,’ Opens Oct. 20-21, with Schubert Symphony and New Commissioned Work

Monterey Symphony’s 2018-19 Season, “Sound Waves,” opens Oct. 20-21, at the Sunset Center in Carmel, and features a new work from composer Alex Berko commissioned in collaboration with the Big Sur Land Trust.

Monterey, CA, August 30, 2018 — Monterey Symphony’s 2018-19 Season, “Sound Waves,” opens Oct. 20-21, at the Sunset Center in Carmel, and features a new work from composer Alex Berko commissioned in collaboration with the Big Sur Land Trust.

The Symphony’s 73rd season opens at 8 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20, with Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 9, “The Great,” and Berko’s “Among Waves.” The concert will also be performed at 3 p.m. Sunday Oct. 21, at Sunset Center.

Berko, an exceptional student at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, spent a week in residence at the Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur, drawing inspiration from the deep beauty of the landscape for inclusion in his new orchestral work. Glen Deven Ranch played a role in the first commission with the Big Sur Land Trust, resulting in “Big Sur, the Night Sun” by esteemed composer John Wineglass.

During the season, one hour prior to every performance there will be pre-concert lectures presented by musicologist Dr. Todd Samra.

The season continues Nov. 17-18, and ends May 18-19, 2019, with all concerts at the Sunset Center in Carmel. All concerts will be conducted by Symphony Music Director Max Bragado-Darman, except for concert number four, March 16-17, 2019, which will be guest conducted by Jung-Ho Pak. All concerts in the season will be held at 8 p.m. Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays at Sunset Center.

In addition, throughout each concert season, special events are held to benefit the nonprofit Monterey Symphony orchestra, and to provide educational and social opportunities for Symphony patrons. This season features a music course and a composer discussion, opening night party, luncheons with the Friends of the Monterey Symphony, Supper Clubs at the best local restaurants, and Gala by the Bay at the Monterey Bay Aquarium on May 3, 2019.

The season’s second concert will be held Nov. 17-18, with Carol Wincenc, professor of flute at Juilliard, who joins the orchestra for Carl Nielsen’s “Flute Concerto,” composed in 1926 for the legendary flautist M. Holger-Gilbert Jespersen. Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4, Op. 36 — often referred to as the “Fate” symphony because of the dark undertones — headlines the second concert of the season. Written in the shadow of Beethoven’s masterful Symphony No. 5, Tchaikovsky echoes the great master’s melancholy in this hallmark orchestral work.

This concert will also feature members of the Youth Music Monterey County Honors Orchestra playing side-by-side on Hector Berlioz’s Overture, Le corsaire, Op. 21, which, like the Tchaikovsky symphony, was also composed during a period of great despair.

The season “Sound Waves” comes alive in the third concert Feb. 16-17, 2019, with four works all dedicated to the sea. Claude Debussy, the father of Impressionism in music, composed “La Mer” in the mold of a symphony, but eschewed the traditional title for one more authentic to the sound of the music. French composer Jacques Ibert, the director of French opera in Rome, wrote “Escales” — a suite for orchestra that perfectly resembles postcards from three Mediterranean ports — after finding his obsession with the sea.

This concert features “Four Sea Interludes” from Peter Grimes, Op. 33a, by Benjamin Britten, England’s finest modern opera composer: composed in 1945, Grimes launched his career in the new post-war era. The gorgeous tone-poem “Oceanides, Op. 73,” by Jean Sibelius was inspired by the sea-nymphs referenced in Greek mythology: haunting and tempting.

Jung-Ho Pak guest conducts the fourth concert of the season March 16-17, 2019, with works by Tan Dun, Shostakovich, and Alan Hovhaness. Revolutionary experimental composer Tan Dun transposes the sounds of water — at play and at work — into the textures of his music, most literally in “Water Concerto” for water percussion and orchestra.

The symphonic poem “And God Created Great Whales” by Alan Hovhaness — commissioned in 1970 by the New York Philharmonic — features prerecorded humpback whale vocalizations, and was credited with early efforts to save whales from extinction. To celebrate the Soviet victory over Germany, Dmitri Shostakovich was commissioned to write Symphony No. 9, which, Leonard Bernstein described as a series of musical jokes (including purposeful mistakes)…completing a boisterous, 99.99% organic, and exciting concert program.

Three Romantic German composers are featured on the fifth concert of the season, April 13-14, 2019, opening with Mendelssohn’s concert overture “Calm Seas and Prosperous Voyage, Op. 27,” inspired by Beethoven’s work of the same name; along with fellow Jewish composer Max Bruch’s popular Violin Concerto No. 1, Op. 26, featuring solo artist Elmar Oliveira returning to play with the Monterey Symphony.

Robert Schumann’s Symphony No. 4, Op. 120, originally his unpublished second symphony, underwent massive revisions in 1851 — five years before his death — proving his mastery over orchestration and increased expression in the final edition of this emotional Romantic symphony.

The sixth and final concert of the season, “Sound Waves,” May 18-19, 2019, will conclude in grand fashion with music by Wagner, Chopin, and Beethoven! Richard Wagner composed many brilliant overtures throughout his many German operas, including the overture from “The Flying Dutchman,” featured as the opening work in the season finale. Chopin’s stunning Piano Concerto No. 2, Op. 21, follows, with magnificent Cuban pianist Marcos Madrigal performing the popular work, composed before Chopin completed his formal education at age 20.

The season ends with one of the greatest compositions for the concert hall of all time: Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, Op, 67. A favorite among experienced and new audiences, musicians and conductors, the fifth endeavor in the symphony genre struck a chord for Beethoven, as he discovered his true forte – it is the “Stairway to Heaven” of classical music.

The lineup of special events kicks off with a course that starts Sept. 18 (and the following four Tuesdays), with “The Music of Franz Schubert” with Dr. Todd Samra, at Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at CSU Monterey Bay in Ryan Ranch, Monterey. The course examines the music of Austrian composer Franz Schubert (1797-1828), and his process of composition.

The Shop Local Network welcomes Ciao Bella as a new Mission Partner

Ciao Bella located at 1514 US Highway 41 in Schererville, Indiana offers true authentic Italian cuisine made with love and passion in a warm, refined atmosphere.

Schererville, Indiana, August 29, 2018 – Ciao Bella located at 1514 US Highway 41 in Schererville, Indiana offers true authentic Italian cuisine made with love and passion in a warm, refined atmosphere. Nick Bello, president of The Shop Local Network stated, “ You feel like you are stepping into a restaurant in Italy. From the food to the wine, they have certainly done it right!”

Giuseppe “Joe” Scalzo, was born in Calabria, Italy, and worked in multiple Tuscan trattorias before emigrating to the United States 15 years ago, when he was 27 years old. Joe was raised in southern Italy, where he studied mechanical engineering. He fell in love with cooking while in Florence, spending time working at a small, intimate restaurant in the evening. He was offered the chance to take over the restaurant, but already had plans to come to the United States.

When he arrived to study international business at Loyola University in Chicago, he soon discovered that his desire to operate a restaurant had not gone away. Having a place where people can share love and friendship over good food that’s prepared with experience and skill is something beautiful. Joe has owned two Chicago restaurants, Piazza Bella (since sold) and Via Carducci (now owned by his brother John) before joining Rosebud Restaurants.

Ciao Bella(which translates to “hello, beautiful”) is a reminder that Italian food can be much more than lasagna, ravioli and spaghetti. “The Mediterranean diet is one of the best in the world”. “Just good, authentic food made with love and passion. Pair with a beautiful wine and it’s wonderful,” stated Joe.

Ciao Bella also offers a great lunch menu with specials daily. When you stop in, make sure you join their loyalty rewards program to earn future rewards. Also take advantage of their Shop Local keytag discount to save even more!

Educator Dina Carter Bryant Empowers Youth to Give Back to their Communities and the World

With twenty-four years of teaching experience, Dina Carter Bryant is educating the next generation about how they can give back to their communities.

San Antonio, TX, USA, August 27th, 2018 — With twenty-four years of teaching experience, Dina Carter Bryant is educating the next generation about how they can give back to their communities. From teaching science technology to engineering and math, she is now on a mission to “bring out the beauty in things that are bleak.”

“I’ve always been interested in the reduce, reuse, recycle campaign,” Bryant comments. “Growing up, my grandparents loved to plant and they had their own personal garden. It took little to nothing for them to build a long-lasting legacy.”

In fact, gardens and green spaces have been shown to greatly improve air quality and reduce pollution in an urban environment according to studies by the UW-Madison Department of Urban and Regional Planning.

For Bryant, it is important to empower children to contribute to their communities. “Children are our biggest investment and if we start educating them from a young age, then those behaviors and those ideas stay with children longer and it impacts generations. We start getting children on board with recycling. They, in turn, will inspire their parents to reduce, reuse, recycle.”

In order to spread this message, Bryant is releasing a new book for children entitled “Daffodils and Daisies”. When two children begin working to beautify an open space in their community, other community members unexpectedly begin contributing to the project.

“I was inspired to show readers the beauty in nature and how they could give back to nature and give back to their communities,” Bryant explains. “My goal is that children will go home and look at a project they can implement in their own community.”

Publisher Lisa M. Umina comments, “This book is a fun way of introducing children to the importance of caring for our environment, by starting with our own neighborhoods. There are steps that can be taken to keep communities beautiful and healthy.”

For more information about Dina Carter Bryant visit “Daffodils and Daisies” is now available at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Paperback for $11.95, in Hardcover for $19.95, and as an e-Book for $9.95.

Fulham Introduces Low-Profile Versions of Popular LinearHO High Output LED DC Modules

LP-LinearHO DC LED Modules Available in 5.5 to 58-inch Models and are designed for Highbays, Vapor Tight, and Troffer Luminaires using FLUO T5HO lamps.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, is now shipping new low-profile versions of its popular LinearHO LED Modules. The new LP-LinearHO high-output DC LED modules are available in eight configurations and are ideal for linear highbays or linear strip luminaries, for example, four- or eight-foot vapor tights and troffers.

The LP-LinearHO DC LED Modules are high-lumen units with an output range from 14,699 lm down to 219 lm, delivering higher lumens per watt and higher thermal conductivity. LP-LinearHO DC LED Modules allow for OEMs to meet the DLC Premium requirement much easier and with greater flexibility. What makes these different from Fulham’s standard LinearHO units is their lower profile, both in width (1.26 inches) and height (.29 inches), higher thermal performance, and 8 percent higher lumen output. The LP-LinearHO DC LED modules are easier and faster to install when compared to standard DC modules. The LP-LinearHO is rigid and has self-thermal management; the MCPCB is mounted in an aluminum extrusion to eliminate the need for heatsinking. They also are suitable for dry or damp locations.

For maximum versatility, the LP-LinearHO DC LED modules are offered in six standard models – 5.5 inches with 1,959lm (480mA), 11 inches with 3,919lm (640mA), 22 inches with 4,899lm (800mA) 22 inches with 7,700lm (1250mA), 44 inches with 8,656lm (1400mA), and 44 inches with 14,699lm (2400mA). A 46-inch model with 8,656lm (1400mA) and a 58-inch version with 14,699lm (2400mA) are also available as custom orders. All the LP-LinearHO units are compatible with Fulham programmable drivers as well as Fulham’s HotSpot LED emergency lighting systems.

“Demand for our LinearHO DC modules continues to grow as the market for new LED installations and LED retrofits continues to heat up,” said Edwin Reyes, Product Director, LED Light Sources, for Fulham. “We are especially seeing more demand for linear modules that can be installed outdoors or in harsher environments such as vapor tight applications. With the addition of these new low-profile DC modules, we are giving OEMs and installers even more flexibility when it comes to high-performance LED luminaires.”

A snap-on, diffused lens accessory as well as a 2 or 4 module harness is available for all the LP-Linear DC LED Modules. The units also are cURus certified, CE listed, and RoHS compliant.

T5 Data Centers Completes T5@Chicago To Accommodate Growing Demand from Enterprise Data Center Users

Completion of Purpose-Built, Customizable Facility Gives T5 a Leadership Presence in Burgeoning Chicago Data Center Market.

Elk Grove Village, IL, USA — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, has completed construction of the T5@Chicago data center in one of the hottest markets in the United States.

The completion of the T5@Chicago facility just seven months after beginning construction demonstrates T5’s ability to build data centers quickly and in a robust nature that appeals to the corporate enterprise. The data center now offers up to 10 MW of available critical power capacity in the important submarket of Elk Grove Village.

The colocation market continues to thrive in the U.S. represented by quarter over quarter leasing records posted by data center providers. The evaluation process of choosing whether to outsource or build your own data center used to be much more complicated and strenuous. However, T5 Data Centers has simplified this decision-making process for companies through its ability to build extremely resilient facilities in a more cost effective, efficient and timely manner.

“Our extensive development process from the initial building design stages to collaborating with our customers during installation has eliminated much of the complexity companies have when undertaking data center initiatives,” said David Horowitz, Vice President of Sales for T5 Data Centers. “It’s all about listening to the customer and delivering on what is important to them. These are mission-critical projects and customers not only demand operational performance and continuous uptime, but they also want to avoid giving up control of their infrastructure. The level of security, unparalleled customer support and true visibility into a customer’s infrastructure within a T5 facility is superior to owning and operating themselves.”

T5 Data Centers has already completed leases in T5@Chicago with a variety of Fortune 1000 companies who were looking for a partner that offered a customizable solution in a highly secure environment.

“We have preleased most of the Phase 1 capacity at T5@Chicago and are already embarking on plans for further expansion,” said Horowitz. “Chicago continues to be one of the hottest data center markets in the country, and T5 is in a unique position to be able to offer such a robust and flexible solution.”

“ComEd has invested billions to upgrade the power delivery infrastructure in Northern Illinois, including a recent substation capacity expansion benefiting the Elk Grove area” said Sheila Owens, Vice President of Economic Development, of ComEd. “This will help ensure consistent and reliable service for customers at T5 Data Centers.”

The newly completed T5@Chicago data center is a purpose-built, LEED-certified data center providing server-ready space for enterprise customers in a highly secure environment. In addition to providing secured, private data halls in a concurrently maintainable and fault-tolerant design, T5@Chicago also provides premium common area amenities to accommodate its customers’ employees.

On-site support is available through T5 Facilities Management (T5FM), which provides best-in-class, award-winning facilities management services including remote hands to data center owners across North America. The T5FM team provides 24/7 facilities support so customers can be assured of uninterrupted service.

Package Central for Adobe InDesign Improves Large Volume Processing

Zevrix Solutions announces Package Central 1.11.1, a maintenance update to company’s file packaging automation solution for Adobe InDesign. The software automatically collects InDesign documents with their fonts and links from watched hot folders. Package Central can serve unlimited users on a network and offers email alerts, variable job names, PDF export, and more. The new version addresses an issue in which the app could stall when enqueuing a large number of InDesign jobs in its hot folders.

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces Package Central 1.11, a maintenance update to its document packaging automation solution for Adobe InDesign. Originally developed for a major publisher in the United States, the software automates InDesign packaging by processing files from watched hot folders. Package Central offloads file packaging to a central system leaving operator workstations free from the document collection process.

The new version addresses an issue in which Package Central could stall when enqueuing a large number of InDesign jobs in the app’s hot folders. The issue was caused by a macOS limitation on the total number of files than can be aggregated for certain operations during threaded processing. Package Central now breaks such long queues into smaller segments, giving users the complete freedom to accumulate unlimited number of jobs in the hot folders.

Under Package Central workflow, production artists, prepress operators and designers simply submit files to watched hot folders that reside on a network. The software automatically collects InDesign files along with their fonts and links freeing user’s time for important tasks such as design and layout. Operator workstations will never again be tied up by the packaging process.

Package Central runs on a dedicated Mac station and watches hot folders for incoming InDesign files. The software performs all its tasks automatically and can run absolutely unattended. It offers the following key features and benefits:

Automatically collect InDesign files from hot folders
Automatic email notifications of process stages and errors
-Update modified links automatically
-Create PDF and IDML files on the fly
-Compose variable folder names
-Serves unlimited users on a network
-Detailed processing history

Pricing and Availability:
Package Central can be purchased for US$149.95 from Zevrix website as well as from authorized resellers. Trial is also available for download. The update is free for registered users. Package Central requires macOS 10.7-10.13 and Adobe InDesign CS5-CC 2018.
