With roots dating back to 1883, the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History inspires discovery, wonder and stewardship of our natural world.

Pacific Grove, CA, April 15, 2019 – With roots dating back to 1883, the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History inspires discovery, wonder and stewardship of our natural world. This science-based learning resource inspires others to explore and conserve the natural and cultural wonders of the Central California Coast.

But it can’t accomplish all that without help from the community it serves.

Support and celebrate the Pacific Grove Natural History Museum and discover the “Wonder of the Museum,” at its annual fundraising event on Oct. 5.

This lively celebration will feature different aspects of local history over the past 136 years, six local wineries pouring wines, six local chefs providing food tastings, live music, a silent auction and an opportunity drawing.

“This event is our main fundraiser of the year, and as a nonprofit, we depend on our wonderful community support to help us accomplish our work,” said Executive Director Jeanette Kihs.

The museum encourages community members to join the growing list of confirmed participating sponsors and support the gala through a sponsorship. Those range from a $10,000 presenting sponsor to a $1,000 patron. Those interested should email Kihs at kihs@pgmuseum.org. Individual event tickets may be purchased for $100 each.

Innovation Discovery Launches the First World-Wide Database of Innovations

Innovation Discovery brings the future into our homes, now!

San Diego, CA, USA — Innovation Discovery is developing the first world-wide database of innovations and has launched on the web the core to collect innovations. The futuristic platform will be designed to foster awareness and adoption of product innovations and new technologies. It is a unique solution to fill the gaps between the existing innovations and the innovations we use.

The aim is to connect worldwide potential customers to innovations and technologies and make them more diffused and successful. When you join “Innovation Discovery,” you gain access to innovations, technologies, innovative talents, dealers, installers, consultants, joint venture partners, updates, and insights that help you to live in the future now.

The platform in development will be connections between innovations, and companies providing innovative products. It will be split in two parts:

• A front-end, consumer oriented, presented as a Wikipedia style, organised in categories with the innovations details and the benefits of their adoption.
• A back-end, business oriented, presented in a LinkedIn style, to establish networking between innovations, companies, dealers/installers, and professionals/consultants.

Carlo Rivis, CEO and founder of Innovation Discovery has more than 15 years of experience in Technology and Innovations and has founded different companies in Italy (EU) and U.S. traveling and working half western world noticing how people do not buy the best choice, but the improved version of something they already know. It does not matter if they can save money; most of the time they do not trust the seller or are too frightened to risk a change, so they buy the thing they are already familiar with.

For years he has thought about this discrepancy: many new innovations that help in reducing costs and improving the quality of life exist, so why people do not use them? At the end he found the answer: because of missing knowledge, fear of risk, and sticking to habits. He hopes the platform will empower users to save money/time, reduce consumption, improve sustainability and improve performances; for a better quality of life for everybody.

Travelpro Announces its Celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the Invention of the Rollaboard

Travelpro will celebrate its 25th Anniversary of the invention of Rollaboard luggage throughout 2012 with an array of promotions, dynamic new product introductions, special events and media co-ops.

Boca Raton, Fla.It all started when Hinda Miller and Lisa Lindahl, inventors of an early sports bra

Jack Kilby and Robert Noyce, inventors of the computer chip

Bob Frankston and Dan Bricklin, inventors of the spreadsheet

Buckminster Fuller, inventor of the geodesic dome

Melitta Bentz, inventor of the coffee filter

George Ferris, inventor of the Ferris Wheel

Alfred Fielding and Marc Chavannes, inventors of Bubble Wrap

Is there anything we do more than connect? And has anyone influenced how we connect more than Tim Berners-Lee? The creator of the World Wide Web was a teenager when he discovered the power of linking things to other things; he developed hypertext to track complex projects while a consultant at the European nuclear-research facility CERN. By 1990 the Internet had been around for two decades, but with his invention of the first Web pages, server, and browser, Berners-Lee transformed it into the Swiss Army knife to end all Swiss Army knives. He is the father of e-everything, and remains among the Web’s guiding spirits as it evolves into 2.0 and beyond.

As one of the most prolific inventors of all time, Jerome Lemelson (on the right, above) devised technology that was used in products ranging from cordless phones to warehouse robots to camcorders. But the inventor is perhaps best known for the fact that he filed and was awarded more than 600 patents–more than any other American except for Thomas Edison. And like Edison, Lemelson wasn’t afraid to pursue infringement claims. Though he lost some major lawsuits, Lemelson eventually won an estimated $500 million in various settlements. He died in 1997, and left part of his fortune to a foundation that now presents a half-million dollar prize each year to great inventors for their work.

Robert Plath, a pilot for Northwest Airlines, changed the physical orientation of luggage from horizontal to vertical, added large wheels and an extension handle; hence, inventing the Rollaboard, an entirely new way to transport personal belongings while traveling.


“When Travelpro founder, Robert Path, invented the original Rollaboard in his garage in 1987, he not only changed the way people traveled but his new invention helped energize the entire travel goods industry,” said Scott Applebee, Vice President of Marketing for Travelpro. “The Rollaboard also led to the creation of the company, Travelpro, which immediately became an industry leader due to his powerful innovation.”


Plath founded Travelpro and began providing Rollaboard luggage to airline flight crews and pilots. The idea was so universally successful with the airline crews, Travelpro launched the product commercially through retail stores in the early 90’s and has been changing the way consumers travel ever since.


In 1994, Travelpro was ranked as one of the fastest growing private companies by Inc. Magazine. Recently, Inc. Magazine listed Plath’s Rollaboard invention as one of the top innovations in modern history. In November 2011, in a Discovery Channel program entitled, “What’s America Worth?” the invention was highlighted as one of the leading examples of how innovation adds value to a country’s net worth.  Numerous awards have followed including winning the 2009 and 2010 Leading Edge Award from Executive Travel Magazine for “The Best Carry-on Case.” Its luggage also had a co-starring role in the multi-Oscar nominated film “Up in the Air”, starring George Clooney.


Today, Travelpro has continued to grow its reputation of innovation and style as one of the leading luggage brands worldwide.  Travelpro luggage is now used by over 80 airlines globally and is sold commercially throughout the world.


Travelpro manufactures numerous luggage collections including Platinum® 7, Crew™ 8, FlightPro® LITE, Walkabout® Lite 4, Maxlite® 2 Rollaboards and Spinners, Executive Pro™ and Tpro® Bold ™. These collections represent the best of the best for innovation, quality and value.


Additionally, Travelpro purchased the well-respected Atlantic Luggage and Austin House to fortify its brand presence in the Luggage and Travel Accessories industry.
