Consultancy Partnership Revolutionizes Agile Project Management

ORLANDO, FL, USA, 2019-Mar-21 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Project management magic is certain to take place when two industry leading agile coaching and consulting companies join forces to bring world-class services to organizations of all sizes and types. AgileDad founder and president, V. Lee Henson explains, “Our partnership with ClarityMinded Consulting is nothing less than a perfect match. This agreement allows us to work even more closely with existing and new clients to provide both technical and non-technical agile project management solutions.” As agile project management continues to prove itself to be the premier solution for all types of products and projects, organizations are saving money by building the right high quality products and services to meet the ever-changing needs of their end consumers. Chuck Ludwigsen, founder of ClarityMinded Consulting adds, “Lee Henson and his team at AgileDad set a new bar in equipping individuals and teams to succeed in the agile landscape. We are honored to partner with him as together we empower business professionals to grow and learn.”

Agile project management allows companies to gain better focus on what not to build, thereby affording the chance to have the most qualified teams swarm to limited work in progress and create an expedited feedback loop with the consumer. Business and technology concepts merge using short iterations to accelerate work from ideation, to discovery, delivery, and ultimately release. Alignment of business strategy, customer needs, and relative complexity work item estimates creates an environment helping organizations reduce time to market and focus on building the best product or service solution. Furthermore, agile project management solutions have proven to be an effective way for companies to see substantial cost savings by creating an organizational culture and mindset where innovation is encouraged and the fear of failure is diminished. This leads to innovative solutions at a much lower cost. While Agile is not the silver bullet, one size fits all solution, organizations that embrace the framework can incrementally improve business processes over time and wind up with their own internal agile center of excellence.

Fulham New EliteControl Power over Ethernet Driver Receives 2019 Sapphire Award from LEDs Magazine

Latest PoE LED Driver with Built-in Wireless Bluetooth Mesh Access Latest Fulham Component to Support Intelligent, Remote Lighting Control.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, is pleased to announce that Fulham’s new EliteControl PoE 2-Channel LED Driver has received this year’s Sapphire’s Award for innovation in LED drivers from LEDs Magazine. The awards were presented at Strategies in Light in Las Vegas February 28.

The Sapphire Awards are judged by a panel of industry experts using various criteria, including innovation, user value, sustainability, impact, and meeting a defined need. The new Power over Ethernet (PoE) driver fills a void in the solid-state lighting market and was developed to meet the growing demand of Fulham customers for a PoE lighting solution. Fulham first demonstrated prototypes of its new PoE drivers at LightFair 2018 in May 2018.

“We are delighted that LEDs Magazine has recognized our new EliteControl PoE driver as a recipient of its Sapphire Award,” said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing and Business Development for Fulham. “More of our customers are looking for luminaire control options and new ways to harness solid-state lighting as a platform for building automation. In fact, we have received a number of requests for a Power over Ethernet driver, and with this new EliteControl driver we offer both PoE and wireless Bluetooth mesh access. It’s part of Fulham’s commitment to continued innovation and anticipation of our customers’ needs.”

June Griffin, publisher of LEDs Magazine (http://www.ledsmagazine.com), said “This prestigious program allows our LED and Lighting Group to celebrate and recognize the most innovative products and leaders in the solid-state lighting industry. Our 2019 Finalists are an outstanding example of companies who are making an impact.”

The EliteControl PoE 2 Channel Driver uses power delivered over an Ethernet cable and has two-channel output for color mixing. The driver can handle an input voltage of 42.5 to 57VDCm with an input power of 12.95W maximum per port (as defined by IEEE 802.3af), 25.5W maximum per port (802.3at), and 51.0W maximum per port (UPOE). This constant current/constant power driver also includes Bluetooth mesh wireless access for remote dimming control.

The PoE driver output range and other functions can be preprogrammed using Fulham’s TPSB-100 SmartSet Controller and software. PoE color tuning and diming controls are managed using an amBX Smart Control management station that issues commands over the same Ethernet cable that delivers power.

The 2019 Sapphire Awards winners were announced at the Gala Event at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas on February 28, 2019. This event occurs during the annual Strategies in Light show held February 26 – March 1, 2019.

National Volunteer Week is April 7th – 13th . How Will You Give Back?

Help Interim Inc. Celebrate National Volunteer Week By Offering Your Time and Talents

Monterey, CA, March 07, 2019 — National Volunteer Week is April 7th – 13th , and Interim Inc. is seeking volunteers from the community to pitch in to help support their valuable services.

Interim is a Monterey-based private nonprofit organization that provides support services, housing and treatment for adults with mental illness in Monterey County.

Volunteering has long been a popular activity in the U.S. Each year millions of people give their time and talents without any compensation. While people volunteer to help others, they also get something in return.

A growing body of research has established a strong relationship between volunteering and health: those who volunteer have lower mortality rates, greater functional ability, and lower rates of depression later in life than those who do not volunteer.”

Interim has a number of volunteer opportunities available to members of the community, for example, group cooking projects. Many of our clients benefit from having prepared frozen meals accessible, so it’s nice to have a group of volunteers to prepare and package individual entrees. You can schedule a weekend cooking project with your club, congregation or co-workers.

If you are a gardener and would like to donate your time, the garden and greenhouse at Shelter Cove need tending during the spring and summer months. Volunteers who can help Interim clients with planting, weeding and harvesting are greatly appreciated!

Our Voices and OMNI Resource Center would love to offer a wider range of classes. If you can teach a four-to eight-week class in yoga, art, Spanish, or cooking, we’d love to hear from you.

To inquire about volunteer opportunities with Interim Inc., contact the Development Office at (831) 649-4522, ext. 205.

About Interim Inc.

Interim, Inc. is a private nonprofit organization that provides a unique combination of support services, housing and treatment for adults with mental illness in Monterey County. Services provided include affordable supportive housing, residential treatment, mental health and dual-recovery services, case coordination, therapeutic services, outreach and intensive support for homeless adults, supported education and employment, day treatment and peer support.

Balance Physical Therapy Adds Two Highly Advanced Anti-Gravity Treadmills to its Monterey and Salinas Locations

Balance Physical Therapy and Human Performance Center further cemented its reputation as being the most patient-focused and results-oriented rehabilitation facility in Monterey County by adding two highly advanced anti-gravity treadmills to its Monterey and Salinas locations.

Salinas, CA, March 04, 2019 – Balance Physical Therapy and Human Performance Center further cemented its reputation as being the most patient-focused and results-oriented rehabilitation facility in Monterey County by adding two highly advanced anti-gravity treadmills to its Monterey and Salinas locations.

The AlterG® Anti-Gravity Treadmill™ is a space-age treadmill that uses a pressurized air chamber to reduce the gravitational load on the body, so those recovering from post-operative injuries can exercise unrestricted and pain-free.

According to the company’s website, the AlterG® “integrates patented, NASA Differential Air Pressure (DAP) technology, a precise air calibration system, and real-time information to change what’s possible in rehab and training. Using a pressurized air chamber to uniformly reduce gravitational load and body weight in precise 1% increments, AlterG enables patients and athletes to move unrestricted and pain-free — restoring and building muscle strength, range of motion, balance, function, and fitness. No other unweighting technology offers as much freedom, control, and versatility.”

Adding the two high-tech machines is in line with Balance Physical Therapy’s goals when it was established in June 2002 by Dr. John Farahmand, a board-certified orthopedic clinical specialist, when he opened his first facility in Salinas. His goal was to be dedicated to being the most patient-focused, results-oriented rehabilitation facility in Monterey County.

“With ten physical therapists and three athletic trainers on our team, we’re one of the largest private physical therapy clinics in Monterey County and the only one with clinics in both Monterey and Salinas,” said Farahmand, a native of Salinas who attended local schools. “And we’re one of the only clinics here that successfully bridges the gap between rehabilitation and wellness by offering programs like post-discharge gym memberships, fitness classes, personal training, Pilates for bone health, and massage therapy to our patients. We build relationships with our patients that stand the test of time.”

Balance currently has six physical therapists in Salinas and four in Monterey, all with doctorates and many who have also pursued even more education in the form of Board Certification in Orthopedics, Manual Therapy Certification, Certification as Strength and Conditioning Specialists, Lymphedema Specialists, and experts to help with Dizziness, Imbalance, and Vertigo. They’ll also be adding Pelvic Health Specialists shortly!

All of Balance’s physical therapists frequently attend continuing education courses, serve as mentors and clinical instructors for graduate students, and speak on a variety of topics in the local community. In fact, the therapists hold a “journal club” every two weeks to go over medical journals to hone their skills and techniques and research new developments in physical therapy.

In addition to physical therapy, Balance also offers 18 group classes per week to patients, including Pilates for Bone Health, balance and fall prevention, high-intensity circuit training and massage therapy. Classes range from 10 to 30 people each.

Expansion is definitely in the future, with new clinics and strategic partnerships planned. “Growth is important,” says Farahmand, “It not only gives us the opportunity to serve more patients, it gives our therapists opportunities for growth as professionals.”

Even with all the physical therapists, high-tech equipment and administrative duties running involved with operating Balance Physical Therapy, Farahmand enjoys getting in the trenches, as it were.

“It’s what I love the most, to get in and work with patients, and to see them make progress” said Farahmand. “The heart and soul of our practice is hands-on patient care and the relationships that we develop along the way.”

ABOUT BALANCE PHYSICAL THERAPY®

Founded in June 2002, by Dr. John Farahmand, who grew up in Monterey and attended local schools, Balance Physical Therapy® and Human Performance Center is dedicated to being the most patient-focused, results-oriented rehabilitation facility in Monterey County.

Balance Physical Therapy® achieves that goal by the application of highly skilled manual therapy, prescribed therapeutic exercise, and patient education, forming a team with its patients that is committed to returning them to an active lifestyle.

Dr. Farahmand graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles with degrees in Psychobiology and Business Administration before pursuing his Doctorate in physical Therapy at the University of Southern California.

In addition to Dr. Farahmend, there are 10 physical therapists at Balance Physical Therapy®, all tops in their field. Dr. Joseph Melo and Dr. Miguel Vargas, both local, are the Directors of the Monterey and Salinas clinics, respectively. All of the physical therapists are committed to constant improvement in the areas of their clinical expertise, exercise interventions, advanced rehabilitation techniques, and the latest in research and science.

In order to maintain the highest standards of professional excellence, all of the physical therapists frequently attend continuing education courses, serve as mentors and clinical instructors for graduate students, and speak on a variety of topics in the local community.

Balance Physical Therapy now has two locations, in Monterey and in Salinas, to better serve the community’s needs.

T5 Data Centers Poised to Meet Emerging Challenges of Mission-Critical Hyperscale & Enterprise Computing

T5 CEO Cites Record of 10 Years’ of Success and Innovation as the Foundation to Meet New Market Challenges and Continued Delivery of “Forever On” Data Services.

Atlanta, GA, USA — After a decade of delivering “forever on” data center services, T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale and enterprise computing environments, has just completed its best year in 2018. As the company moves into 2019, T5 CEO Pete Marin predicts another strong year as T5 prepares to meet the new challenges of the rapidly changing cloud computing market.

“T5 has been able to stay ahead of the continually changing data center market by combining future-proof facilities with innovation, superior expertise and customer service,” said Marin. “With a 10+ year record of success, we continue to expand our data center portfolio and provide services that anticipate our customers’ needs. We have a growing list of satisfied customers and industry accolades such as the Uptime Institute’s Continuous Uptime Award, so we have earned our reputation for reliability and delivering ‘forever on’ services.”

New demands on hybrid computing architectures are presenting new challenges to data center occupiers and colocation providers. Hybrid clouds are making up the bulk of corporate computing services, giving users access to vast public clouds while enabling them to retain control over their most sensitive applications. In addition, Edge computing is gaining ground as more companies decentralize their IT infrastructure and use regional data centers to shorten the backhaul and reduce latency for applications such as managing Internet of Things (IoT) devices. In fact, the proliferation of IoT, mobile computing, and other data traffic is putting an added strain on data centers.

At the same time, there is an ongoing shortage of qualified data center personnel. According to a study by the Uptime Institute, 45 percent of data center operators said that lack of qualified staff will limit data center growth for the next five to seven years, and 38 percent said they are having trouble finding qualified candidates to fill open IT positions.

“T5 is one of the few companies able to offer end-to-end data center solutions from construction to ongoing operations,” Marin added. “In addition to our Tier III-plus data centers, we have T5 Construction Services to help with planning and custom build-outs, and we have T5 Facilities Management to provide world-class operations expertise. We are a one-stop-shop with the staff and resources to deliver tailored hyperscale and enterprise solutions, no matter what the requirements.”

The company has plans for international expansion in 2019. T5 has already announced the addition of T5@Ireland, and the company will expand its international coverage in the months ahead.

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. Christopher S. Lamb is featured on percussion.

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, 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.

Ticketholders are invited one hour prior to every performance for the symphony’s pre-concert lectures in the Hall of Sunset Center.

Subscriptions are now available. Please contact the box office for availability at (831) 646-8511. For more information and pricing visit: http://www.montereysymphony.org/concerts-events/subscriptions

The luncheon starts with no-host cocktails at 11:30 a.m., followed by luncheon at 12:15 and the guest speaker presentation at 1:15. Cost is $50 per person.

The March Supper Club will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, March 17, 2019, at Anton & Michel, Mission Street between Ocean and Seventh, in Carmel.
