The Monterey Museum of Art Announces Year of the Woman 2018 Exhibition and Events Schedule

The Monterey Museum of Art (MMA) is pleased to announce a full slate of exhibitions, lectures, pop-up dinners, tours, workshops, and fundraisers with a focus on notable women artists of California and the Central Coast.

Monterey, CA, January 11, 2018 – The Monterey Museum of Art (MMA) is pleased to announce a full slate of exhibitions, lectures, pop-up dinners, tours, workshops, and fundraisers with a focus on notable women artists of California and the Central Coast.

Why is the very idea of artistic greatness rarely extended to women? The MMA puts the question center stage in a series of exhibitions showing groundbreaking work of California women artists spanning 100 years plus of style, medium, and perspective.

“We have some amazing work by women,” said Stuart Chase, the Museum’s Executive Director, “but their work only makes up about twenty percent of our entire collection. By recognizing the work and wisdom of women artists past and present, we hope to help articulate an inclusive vision for the future.”

From E. Charlton Fortune, a bold and free-spirited early 20th century impressionist, to Kim Campbell, an abstract expressionist, women artists exhibited this year are not only “as good as the men,” some of them have blazed new trails where no man has gone before.

Please note: the MMA on Pacific Street will be closed February 5 through March 14, 2018 for gallery renovations.

Exhibitions slated to open in 2018 include:

Special installations throughout the year, beginning with Kim Campbell, January 5

Collection Highlights of Women Artists throughout the year, such as: E. Charlton Fortune, Margaret Bruton, Esther Bruton, Grace Carpenter Hudson, Eugenia Frances Mc Comas, M. Evelyn McCormick, Mary De Neale Morgan, Edna Bullock, June Felter, Adelie Landis, Emiko Nakano, Beatrice Wood, Tracey Adams, Mabel Alvarez, Susan Manchester, Malin Lager, Ruth Bernhard, Gene Kloss, Anne Brigman, Marie Brumund, Pamela S.

About the Monterey Museum of Art

The Monterey Museum of Art (MMA) was established in 1959 to uphold the artistic legacy of the region by collecting, preserving, and presenting the art of California and the Central Coast.

The only nationally accredited museum between San Jose and Santa Barbara, the MMA’s goal is to expand a passion for the region’s visual arts—past, present, and future. Exhibitions and programs are designed to demonstrate California’s vibrant, diverse spirit, and to inspire, engage, and connect art and community.

Fulham VP to Address Problems of Lighting Controls and the Need for Interoperable Standards at IoT Evolution

Fulham’s Russ Sharer to Show How Lighting Industry Serves as a Test Case for IoT Interoperability in Presentation on “How Smart Lighting Headaches are Delaying IoT”.

Orlando, FL, USA — For industrial lighting controls to become part of any Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure the lighting industry is going to have to overcome two primary hurdles: 1) lack of intelligence in lighting devices and 2) a lack of common control standards. That’s the primary focus of “How Smart Lighting Headaches are Delaying IoT,” a presentation to be delivered by Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham Co., Inc., at IoT Evolution to be held here January 22 -25.

Fulham is a leading supplier of programmable LED lighting sub-systems and has been working with lighting vendors and OEMs to shape the future of intelligent lighting and IoT. As Sharer notes, there already is a new category of “clever” LED lighting products with on-board intelligence and programmability. To elevate these clever devices to smart lighting requires integration as well as intelligence, providing two-way communications for device monitoring and control. This is where the lighting industry is lagging behind; adopting common communication standards that can integrate current lighting controls into an IoT infrastructure.

“The challenges the lighting community are facing are typical of many industries; how to develop a common set of protocols to integrate legacy smart devices into an IoT infrastructure, said Sharer. “Clearly, IoT is going to be the foundation for building automation, but there are too many proprietary lighting control and communications standards. Today, customers can choose between DALI, Zigbee, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and many more for lighting controls, but there is still no guarantee of integration with a central IoT platform.”

To complicate the interoperability issue, many vendors are creating their own flavors of popular control standards. For example, some vendors are using DALI electrically and signaling, but adding proprietary commands for basic functions. Similarly, Zigbee has multiple variants of commands for when a luminaire is turned “off,” so two luminaires can receive the same signal and one device dims while the other turns off completely, which matters when it comes to energy consumption and extending the life of the luminaire.

“The teething pains of the lighting control industry are the perfect test case for other IoT control applications,” said Sharer. “It shows that without a well-defined set of common control standards, there is no way to implement control using IoT.”

Sharer’s presentation, “How Smart Lighitng Headaches are Delaying IoT,” is scheduled to take place Thursday, January 25, at 10:00 a.m. – #IOTEVOLUTION.

Momentum Continues for T5 Data Centers with Addition of S&P 500 Client in Chicago

Information Technology Company Chooses T5@Chicago To Accommodate Rapid Growth.

Elk Grove Village, IL, USA — T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, today announced another pre-lease within Phase 2 of the T5@Chicago build-out. This is the second pre-lease with an enterprise company for T5 Data Centers in Chicago. Pre-leasing is challenging in the data center industry and occurs more often with hyperscale providers than it does with the enterprise. However, T5 was able to deliver a customized solution for this client and meet an accelerated time frame for a “rack-ready” data hall.

This S&P 500 Client needed immediate access to a Tier III data center in the Chicagoland area, but more importantly, that data center had to be both customizable and meet the stringent security and administrative criteria of highly regulated companies. T5 has extensive experience building custom data center solutions for customers in financial services, telecommunications, health care, and other regulated markets across the country.

“The complexity of these projects requires a cohesive team that communicates effectively and pays close attention to detail. The level of transparency we demonstrate to our customers provides them with a level of comfort and control, as if our operations staff was simply an extension of their team,” said David Horowitz, VP of Sales and Marketing for T5 Data Centers.

As customer IT requirements continue to evolve with the adoption of cloud computing, it becomes more important for providers to offer flexible solutions that align with corporate objectives. Horowitz adds, “This was an incredibly fast transaction that incorporated several important factors including a creative growth structure and a flexible ramp schedule. While the transaction structure remains instrumental in selecting a data center provider, our customers find tremendous value in the processes and procedures our T5 Facility Management teams have in place to ensure 100 percent uptime and to deliver exceptional customer service.”

T5@Chicago is a highly secured, 208,000 square-foot, Tier III data center located in Elk Grove Village. This LEED Silver certified data center was acquired by T5 Data Centers in 2016 and has been operating since its inception through T5FM, which provides best-in-class, award-winning facilities management services. T5 is currently in Phase 2 of its T5@Chicago build-out, adding a new secure data hall with an additional 2 mW capacity.

T5@Chicago is the company’s ninth U.S. data center and meets the resilient, high-quality characteristics consistent across T5’s portfolio.

About T5 Data Centers
T5 Data Centers (T5) is a leading national data center owner and operator, committed to delivering customizable, scalable data centers that provide a “Forever On” computing environment to power mission critical business applications. T5 Data Centers provides enterprise colocation data center services to organizations across North America using proven, best-in-class technology and techniques to design and develop facilities that deliver the lowest possible total cost of operations for its clients.

Baby Boomer Alert — Santa Cruz Lifespan Aging Care Management Agency Announces New Personal Assistant Services for Older Adults

Lifespan, a comprehensive aging care management agency locally owned and operated and serving Santa Cruz for 35 years, is now offering a new and innovative service — Personal Assistants.

Santa Cruz, CA, January 08, 2018 – Lifespan, a comprehensive aging care management agency locally owned and operated and serving Santa Cruz for 35 years, is now offering a new and innovative service — Personal Assistants.

Personal Assistants are skilled individuals with experience serving aging and disabled persons who can offer a variety of activities, such as socialization, recreation, home organization, escort to medical appointments, and more. Support is also available with organizing mail, bill paying and completing forms.

Kathy Geerin, of Santa Cruz is one such personal assistant. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, and a graduate of Hofstra University, Geerin was an art teacher and art therapist in special education before joining Lifespan in 1997. She started out working in Lifespan’s conservatorship program and later became a part-time care management assistant prior to that program expanding into the current personal assistant program.

Geerin works with six to seven clients for several hours each per week. A typical day with a client might involve going grocery shopping, escorting to a hairdressing or manicure appointment, sorting and organizing mail and other paperwork, trips to the library or a scenic beach drive. She may also assist with scheduling appointments and arranging transportation. Sometimes Geerin will simply sit and talk with a client if the client desires. “I enjoy learning about my clients, some have a fascinating history, it’s really interesting.”

There is a one-hour minimum for the Personal Assistant service.

About Lifespan

Lifespan is a comprehensive aging care management agency dedicated to providing the highest quality of care in the home or setting of one’s choice.

Lifespan’s goal is to maximize the health, safety, comfort, and independence of its clients through compassionate person-centered care. Since 1983 Lifespan has provided all-inclusive home care and professional geriatric care management services to adults in need of assistance. A leader in aging care services, Lifespan is one of the very first organizations to provide this combination of care on the West Coast, and still the only agency of its kind in Santa Cruz County.

Lifespan’s professional care management is provided by registered nurses and master’s level social workers who conduct assessments of client strengths and unmet needs then help the client and family decide on a plan of care. In addition, care managers can coordinate a variety of resources and work with health care providers, fiduciary agents, and other professionals to make sure that all needs are met as conditions change. Lifespan also offers medication set-up and managements by RNs.

Home care aides provide the important support with activities of daily living such as light housekeeping, shopping, laundry, meal preparation and clean up, personal hygiene, mobility, and medication reminders. They also provide protective supervision for persons with cognitive impairment. Care up to 24/hours per day is offered based on staffing availability. All home care aide services are supervised by the professional care manager RNs and social workers to ensure optimal care.

Lifespan is in full compliance with the 2015 California Home Care Services Consumer Protection Act, under the auspices of the California Department of Social Services, which specifies that all employees meet criteria as registered home care aides. This includes thorough screening, criminal background clearance (fingerprinting) by both the Department of Justice and FBI in addition to verifying initial and ongoing professional training. Employees of all levels are covered by Lifespan’s general liability bond and worker’s compensation policies.

There are more than 2 million professional home care workers in the U.S. providing care and support to aging adults and persons with disabilities in home and community-based settings. The home care workforce has doubled in the past 10 years and the population of those 65 and older is expected to double to 88 million by 2050, making the role of professional aging care professionals that much more critical.

Racing Towards Retailization: WishKnish and InstantAccess.io Bring Down Usability Barriers to True Blockchain Adoption

Washington, DC, USA, 2018-Jan-08 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — What does the average retail user think about blockchain technology? A few words that frequently come up are: confusing, abstract, scary, complicated, overwhelming. Not exactly wide adoption territory. But one innovative company hopes to change that.

Any great technological revolution goes through stages, each with its own unique challenges. Blockchain technology is still in its infancy, and yet it’s already rearing to change the world. However, before it can “grow up”, it has to be accepted by the harshest audience of all: the average retail consumer.

So, how does one make the average consumer fully understand blockchain tech? If you ask Alisa Gus, CEO of WishKnish (https://wishknish.com) – you don’t.

“When you get into your car in the morning, do you need to understand the principles of internal combustion in order to get your engine revved up? I don’t think so,” Alisa says. “Neither do you need to understand how SSL encryption works in order to make a secure e-commerce purchase. Any great technology has to fit transparently into your routine so that you use it successfully without thinking. That is what needs to happen to blockchain tech before it can be fully embraced.”

WishKnish, the social, gamified marketplace platform startup based out of the Washington, DC area, has been making great strides in bringing much-needed usability improvements to the often complicated process of obtaining and transacting in cryptocurrencies – virtual tokens encrypted using a secret hash and decentralized across multiple distributed “ledgers”.

Last month WishKnish announced a key partnership with UK biometric security firm BioSSL to replace the convoluted and oft-problematic “private key” used to unlock cryptocurrency wallets, with army-grade biometric security measures and other layers of authentication.

Michael Kapoor, former managing partner at Propeller Venture Capital and newly minted COO of WishKnish is no stranger to untangling the usability struggles commonly encountered in this nascent space. “If you’ve ever lost your private key, your tokens are as good as gone,” Mr. Kapoor says. “This level of risk is simply unacceptable for the average user. This is just one example of the evolutionary challenges we are addressing with the WishKnish platform.”

Now, the ambitious team is staring off 2018 by partnering with InstantAccess.io, a usability startup based out of Berlin, Germany that helps users save time filling out form online by maintaining their own private, secure repository that can be easy tapped into with a single click. Previously stored form fields can be updated across the entire network, making changes easy.

“It’s as simple as logging in via Facebook or Twitter – just click the icon, authenticate, and the necessary data will automatically be sent to the app,” explains Eugene Teplitsky, CTO of WishKnish and Alisa’s partner. “Since our goal is to accommodate a wide range of storefront communities, we anticipate a broad need for information that users could potentially exchange with them, from the mundane – like shoe size or dietary preference – to more complex, harder-to-remember details – like blockchain wallet addresses. InstantAccess.io will save users a ton of time, and shave off another layer of usability barriers between blockchain technology and full adoption among retail users.”

“We are super excited about the partnership with WishKnish as we believe blockchain technology is becoming widely adopted by everyday users”, says Rick Chen, director at InstantAccess.io. “Our aim is simple, we want the InstantAccess app to save users time, make their life easier, especially in adopting new and exciting technologies like blockchain.”

The future for retailization of user-facing blockchain marketplaces has never been brighter.

About WishKnish Corp.
WishKnish (https://wishknish.com) offers businesses, affiliates, and non-profits a decentralized marketplace platform for launching gamified, socially-engaged storefront communities equipped with the tools to turn regular users into super-fans and evangelizers while streamlining coin-agnostic e-commerce and fulfillment, as well as offering advanced blockchain-as-a-service tools to meet enterprise clients’ needs.

About InstantAccess.io
InstantAccess is an app that saves all kinds of user information/preferences securely and privately. Users can then re-use this information online and offline with just one click. From emails to shoe sizes to blockchain wallet addresses, InstantAccess makes it easier to access services.

Instructor Certification from World Leaders in Self-Defense & Personal Protection

SAFE International™, a global organization that offers world-leading self-defense and personal-protection instruction, is hosting an instructor certification program in Ottawa from March 9 – 11, 2018 at Plyomax Fitness, 3771 Spratt Road, Ottawa, ON.

Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, January 05, 2018 — SAFE International™, a global organization that offers world-leading self-defense and personal-protection instruction, is hosting an instructor certification program in Ottawa from March 9 – 11, 2018 at Plyomax Fitness, 3771 Spratt Road, Ottawa, ON.

As part of the organization’s mission to empower 500,000 women and girls in self-defense by 2020, the instructor certification program aims to spread the reach of life-saving safety information and physical skills from a curriculum designed to reach some of society’s most vulnerable to violence in often limited time.

SAFE International’s self-defense curriculum has been honed, tested, and proven effective over the course of more than twenty years. It is currently taught by experts in security and personal protection, reaches leaders in public safety around the world, and is delivered regularly to teens, women and youth in a framework that promotes responsible citizenship and teaches survival skills that are effective no matter someone’s age or size.

“We want to teach the next generation of teachers now,” says Chris Roberts, SAFE International’s founder and managing director. “We know that the best way to reach the most people with safety and survival skills that work is to share our expertise with as many instructors as possible. Outside instructors who take our training bring their own knowledge, skills and experiences into the classroom and it enriches the learning environment for everyone who attends.”

The instructor certification program will be led by founder Chris Roberts and instructor Richard Dimitri, a world leader in personal protection and security training. With skills and expertise amassed over two lifetimes in the professional realm of self-defense and violence prevention, Roberts and Dimitri team up to deliver this program with passion and purpose. Their mission is fueled by evidence-backed information, personal and professional experiences with real-world violence.

“A lot of people believe that self-defense training and martial arts are similar. They’re not. When it comes to violence there are psycho-social influences and behavioural elements that exist in uncontrolled environments with many variables that simply don’t apply when people are sparring on the mat or in the ring where rules exist. To effectively deliver self-defense training these dynamics need to be addressed, dissected and explored long before physical training is introduced,” says Roberts.

“And physical applications need to account for the differences in how violence exists in the real word versus in the classroom,” says Dimitri. “The reason I teach this program and work so closely with SAFE International™ is because I know what we’re teaching works.”

SAFE International™ believes anyone who is interested will benefit from the instructor certification program and registration is open to anyone interested in attending. Previous certification has included a range of attendees from martial artists, workplace safety and violence prevention coordinators, fitness instructors, parents, teachers, and others interested in learning and passing on credible information about staying safe.

“Hair Loss: Options for Restoration & Reversal” Wins the Best Book Awards for 2017

Award-winning author Gustavo J. Gomez has once again received recognition for one of his thoroughly researched and well-received books.

Miami, FL (USA), January 04, 2018 — Award-winning author Gustavo J. Gomez has once again received recognition for one of his thoroughly researched and well-received books. This time the award goes to his newest book “HAIR LOSS: Options for Restoration & Reversal” which was selected as an American Book Fest 2017 Best Book of the Year Finalist in the General Health category.

“The Best Book Awards launched in 2003 by Jeffrey Keen, President and CEO of American Book Fest. Now in its 15th year, the Best Book Awards is considered one of the largest mainstream and independent book award competition in the United States.”

“I am honored to have received this award,” said Gustavo Gomez. “It is a validation of the hard work and dedication that I put into everything I write. I have spent years researching the subject of hair loss, treatment options, the emotional impact and the solutions that are available, and this award is a wonderful recognition of that hard work.”

“HAIR LOSS” is essential reading for those already afflicted or beginning to experience a certain degree of hair loss. Fortunately for the stricken, hair-loss research is making significant discoveries that could potentially lead to a permanent cure for androgenetic or common hair loss.

Although the book was just published five months ago, readers are already responding in an overwhelmingly positive manner with such comments as this one from Readers’ Favorite Reviewer Ray Simmons:

“I am a methodical person and I like to approach problems like hair loss in a systematic and scientific manner. I would rather read a book by an expert than react to a sixty-second infomercial. The only drawback to this way of doing things is finding the right book. If you are in a similar situation as to what you can do about hair loss, let me assure you. This is the book for you.

“HAIR LOSS: Options for Restoration & Reversal” by Gustavo J. Gomez does exactly what the title and subtitle implies. It lists your options to combat and restore the loss of hair in a clear and very organized manner, one that is not intent on selling you something but just giving you information you can use.” The writing is clear and concise. The explanations reasonable and scientific. In fact, it is rare to find the book that tells you everything you need to know on a subject. When it comes to hair loss, Gustavo J. Gomez has written that book.

Gomez’s book isn’t just for men, in fact reviewer Gisela Dixon had this to say:
“HAIR LOSS: Options for Restoration & Reversal” is so well written that anybody with no prior understanding of the field can easily pick up and learn all of the information they need. I was impressed with Gustavo’s obvious and in-depth knowledge of the field, and also his ability to make the subject easy to understand as well as interesting to read! Hair loss is such a common occurrence among people all over the world, regardless of race or ethnicity that I am sure many people will truly benefit from learning more about the underlying science of hair and also be able to choose wisely from all of the treatment options available. This is a very useful book that I would recommend!”

“HAIR LOSS: Options for Restoration & Reversal” is now available at Halo Publishing, Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in Hardcover for $34.95, Paperback for $25.95, and eBook for $9.99.

* Halo Publishing
* Amazon
* Barnes and Noble

Gomez is also the author of “Private Money Lending: Learn How to Consistently Generate a Passive Income Stream.” An award-winning book that to date has garnered the following awards:

* Axiom Business Book Awards-2016
* International Book Awards-2017
* Independent Press Awards-2017
* Next-Generation Indie Book Awards-2017
* New York City Big Book Awards-2017
* National Indie Excellence Awards-2017
* Best Book Awards-2017
* Clemens Medal-2017

About Gustavo J. Gomez, Ph.D.:
Gustavo has been a successful entrepreneur, educator, healthcare consultant, and businessman for the past thirty-five years. His educational background and business experience have made him exceptionally versatile, achieving numerous successes in both the healthcare and business fields. As a multiple-award-winning author possessing this academic versatility allows Gustavo the ability to research and write about healthcare, entrepreneurial and business-related issues.

His interest in the causes of hair-loss related issues surfaced 35 years ago when he began to experience some hair thinning. To prevent the problem from advancing beyond control, he began to educate himself about the causes and conditions that can lead to hair loss. In his search for a possible solution to correct and/or ameliorate his hair-loss condition, he experimented with a myriad of balding prevention recommendations.

This empirical journey of discovery is the reason behind the creation of this useful and informative book about alopecia (hair loss), its causes, treatments and promising future trends. In essence, it is still a journey that continues in an attempt to uncover the options for restoration and reversal of hair loss.

The objective of this new book, entitled “HAIR LOSS: Options for Restoration & Reversal” is to educate the consuming public about the effectiveness of the many available hair-loss treatment modalities the consumer will be subjected to. This is an important and valuable book for both men and women who are afflicted with hair loss problems. The book provides the reader with a historical perspective regarding hair loss, as well as the present and future trends of alopecia research.
