Why JockMenLive.com, the “Facebook” for Muscle, registers a monthly Growth of +108 Percent

When Social Media Meets Live Cam – the next generation of Gay Adult Entertainment

The Netherlands, August 25, 2016 – How to bring innovation in the adult industry? A totally unique LiveCam – Social Media – Hookup / Dating and forum platform is registering an overwhelming success. It’s the next generation in Adut Entertainment, Social Media meeting Live Cam.

JockMenLive, the online community for bodybuilders, male athletes, jocks and their admirers, decided to offer community-driven environment to their free members where… they get paid to post! They can spend their JockBucks on a cam show with one of the over 250 models ready to flex their muscles in (and out) their posing trunks, custom made muscle pics & videos, tips and bodybuilding sponsorships.

In addition to this, members have their own profiles, can interact over Skype, communicate via news-feeds, or even broadcast their own shows for fun and profit. Coming next will be new dating and Hook-up Tools, allowing members and models to find Mr. Right, Mr. Right Now, or even arrange Live Muscle Worship sessions with some of the top names in the muscle world.

“From the inception of JockMenLive, we wanted to create a new kind of user experience”, says JML lead, Shaun L, “Cam sites are ubiquitous, and sex is easy to come by online. What our members kept telling us is that they were looking for something more. The wanted ‘relationship’ , and to be part of something.. We surveyed them, asking them for specific suggestions, then we delivered. That’s how our platform became the next generation in Gay Adult Entertainment: a totally unique Live Cam – Social Media – Hookup / Dating and forum platform.”

All started with a much-requested old-fashioned forum, where members could exchange pics, interact with models and with each other, and exchange information. According to Shaun L, “We were a little terrified, as there is little worse than an empty, inactive forum – but our members got busy making that space their own. That feature has been an overwhelming success.”

The other most frequently requested feature was the ability to use Skype. “Skype has always been the enemy of normal cam sites. Models can easily be tempted off-site, and the losses can be staggering to a small company such as ours. But, we decided to listen to what our members were saying: Skype still provides the most intimate cam-to-cam, voice to voice experience, and our members really want intimacy.”

“The internet is an amazing tool”, Shaun L continues, “but research has shown that it can also lead to social isolation. We want to use this media to allow people to come together. Our members were clear – they want our platform to increase their connectedness to other human beings. It’s our goal to provide a fully realized Social Cam site for this Market, and then expand to new niche’s over time. Once we make JockMenLive.com the Facebook of Muscle, we can do the same for any other fan group. We’ll never be the Walmart of the Cam world, nor do we wish to be. We’d much rather be known for great concierge level service, unique products, and for really listening to our valued members.”

The idea to create a concierge service for their members proved to be successful, JockMenLive has been growing at an average rate of +108% per month. “Plus, our members are very loyal because they are treated as a community, not as consumers.”

JockMenLive.com is now bringing fans of the masculine male, everything they asked for – Live Cam with some of the most famous faces in the adult and bodybuilding world, forums, videos, facebook style profiles where members can upload photos, videos, interact using news-feeds, and leave reviews of any models anywhere.

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.

About Innovation Discovery
Innovation Discovery was born at the beginning of 2016 and started hitting the market few months later with its online core at http://www.innovation-discovery.blogspot.com. Its vision is to promote the diffusion of the innovations in the world to improve the quality of life of the entire humanity.

Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Gu is a mechanical engineering master candidate from Stanford University. Originally from Taiwan, Gu is someone who usually thinks outside the box. Disruptor, troublemaker, entrepreneur, as he calls himself.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

Gu said he got the idea for smart lock due to his experience living in Asia where technology is relatively less developed.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

Founded and developed by Stanford University students, CANDY HOUSE, Inc. is a candy store that sells dreams, putting the joy and surprise of innovative technology in the hands of consumers, just like candy. It is also a design house, developing and manufacturing products that inspire a minimal lifestyle. It launched its first product – Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock – in February 2015. For more information about CANDY HOUSE, Inc., visit the site online or follow it on Facebook or Twitter.

Sesame – smart lock that changes the world

Palo Alto, CA, March 27, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock, raised more than seven times of its funding goal on Kickstarter. Launched on Kickstarter on Feb. 25, 2015, Sesame has raised more than $760,000 from backers all over the world.

The smart lock, which allows users to control their door with a smartphone app, attracted thousands.

Connected to users’ phone via Bluetooth, Sesame allows users full control of the lock, even to the exact angle a lock turns. With the optional Wi-Fi Access Point that connects Sesame to the Internet, users don’t even have to be physically near Sesame. The remote control feature allows people to send access to their friends and keep track of whether the door’s locked wherever they are.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/Singapore/Norway/Sweden Markets.

With market of Internet of Things (IoT) expanding rapidly, backers are turning more and more attention to smart gadgets that make their life easier. Founded by two students from Stanford University, CANDY HOUSE Inc. designs and manufactures products that inspire a minimal yet joyful lifestyle.

“People will carry less and less things when leave the house, that’s the trend,” said Jerming Gu, founder of Candy House.

Wallet, keys, and cell phone. People used to bring three things when they leave home. Now walltet is gradually replaced by keys. The Starbucks app pays your green tea frappuccino, you Venmo money to a friend for getting late-night pizza, you hop on a Uber without worrying about cab fare or tip.

“With Sesame, the next thing to disappear are the keys,” said Gu.

Hays PureWater Launches $10,000 Campaign To Save Lives

WASHINGTON, IA, November 25, 2014 — /REALTIME PRESS RELEASE/ — 783 million people live each day without clean water and 3.4 million die annually from a lack of pure water. To combat these staggering statistics, Washington-based nonprofit, Hays PureWater, launched a crowd-funding campaign. The money raised will fund 30 Khlor Glen technology units to purify water for 150,000 individuals. The organization hopes to raise $10,000 by December 1st.

Hosted on crowd-funding platform IndieGoGo, the project offers nine sponsorship levels. Each level includes novelty “rewards” for donors, ranging from stickers to t-shirts to a trip to Haiti. The rewards are unique, innovative and hands on, giving donors a sense of ownership in the project. For just $2,500, an investor can travel to Haiti (all inclusive) to see the life changing benefits first hand.

The Khlor Glen is a simple unit that turns salt water into chlorine. The chlorine treats infected water, removing deadly impurities and toxins in just one hour. It’s solar powered and easily used in remote areas, where clean water is most needed. “It will also impact malaria zones as it can be used as a bug repellant and protect from disease,” says founder John Hays. “Even just using the chlorine produced by the unit as a sanitizer can cut down on so many infections that the natives in these areas don’t even know exist.”

In the last eight years, Hays PureWater distributed over 4,000 purifying units around the world, changing entire communities by implementing this system. It’s proven to work. Hays builds each system with the help of a dedicated group of volunteers. Nothing is outsourced, ensuring the most effective product for the lowest cost. Now all they need is help from their community to change the lives of those in need once more.

See the crowd-funding campaign here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/hays-purewater-providing-clean-water-globally

ABOUT Hays PureWater
In 2006, after traveling around developing nations on missions trips, John Hays began to create a low cost, portable solution for water purification. John, who worked with municipal water works for over 30 years, put his experience to use and developed the Khlor Gen system. Through the years, the design and look has been changed and improved, but the mission has stayed the same. The organization exists to provide people with clean water, reaching out to them through word and deed. Eight years and 4,000 units later, that mission continues full steam ahead.

Grenadier Homes Names TrizCom Agency of Record

<strong>Grenadier Homes –- a developer and builder of townhomes, patio homes and custom-designed homes – has selected Dallas-based public relations firm TrizCom as its agency of record.

Dallas, TX (USA), January 15, 2013 — Grenadier Homes – a developer and builder of townhomes, patio homes and custom-designed homes – has selected Dallas-based public relations firm TrizCom as its agency of record.

Although the company was founded in 1990 by Anthony Natale and John Egnatis, Grenadier Homes ( http://www.grenadierhomes.com ) can trace its roots back to the 1960s when Natale’s father, Nick, built a custom-designed home for the Egnatis family. Natale and Egnatis became neighbors and close friends because of the build, frequently playing hockey together in the winter on a frozen pond called Grenadier. The build had a major impact on both of them and many years later, they created Grenadier Homes with that in mind – to make a positive difference in people’s lives through homebuilding.

Over the years, Grenadier Homes has developed a reputation as an industry leader in customer service, workmanship, integrity and innovation. Grenadier Homes doesn’t simply put up houses – it builds dreams.

“At the end of the day, our success and our joy come from the fact that homeowners are happy. We base everything on our customers – on finding a way to make their dreams a reality, of creating homes that fit their lifestyles like never before,” notes Natale. “It’s not just about building houses – it’s about fulfilling dreams.”

The company continually strives to create the ultimate homebuyer experience for its customers, offering additional services to make the building and purchasing process as stress-free as possible.

“Building a new home is a major life decision for many customers and that can be a very frustrating experience. If we can take some of the stress out, then the customers will be happier. They’ll make better decisions about what they want, and they’ll feel better about the end result,” adds Egnatis.

In addition to building and design services, Grenadier Homes ( http://www.grenadierhomes.com ) offers its customers assistance with selling and financing their current homes, a mortgage calculator to make the financial data clearer, a private mortgage insurance buyout program, and a contingency program that provides customers with a 100 percent refund if they aren’t able to sell their homes.

“Grenadier Homes has a reputation as an honest company that provides excellent customer service and quality work,” said Jo Trizila, president of TrizCom. “Our companies see eye-to-eye on how we do business, and we are honored to represent them.”

Realter (Rltr) Approved As Official Title For Real Estate Professionals Worldwide

IPO Approves Realter [Rltr] as official title for real estate professionals worldwide

MARIKINA, PH, January 14, 2013, 5:16 am — /EPR NETWORK/ — There is a new officially approved professional title for real estate practitioners — Realter. This word will soon find its way as new entry in the dictionary, and it will read as follows:

REALTER. Definition: [A patented service mark. Pronunciation: \\rē(-ə)l-tər, rē-al-tər\\.Abbreviation: Rltr.. Plural: Realters. Verb intransitive: Realteer. Verb present participle: Realteering. Verb past participle: Realteered]. Referring to real estate service practitioners who are registered in Realter Society and given extension of license by its patent owner. Realter and its abbreviation Rltr are exclusively used as professional titles before the names of members of Realter Society worldwide.

After 14 months of due diligence by experts in the Intellectual Property Office Philippines (IPOPHIL), the RLTR REALTER SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL 2011, its website REALTERSOCIETY.ORG, its service mark (logo), and manner of use were finally approved on 28 September 2012; and awarded with Trademark Registration No. 42011990441.

Real estate practitioners anywhere around the world, regardless of nationality, who want to use this prestigious Realter (Rltr) professional title may individually apply for extension of patent license by registering in Realter Society. The innovator defines the term professional practitioner as a service provider who does it for a living (for a fee).

Qualified to register are real estate financiers; agents such as brokers, salespersons, auctioneers, referral agents, buyer agents; dealers, short sellers, operators of for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) advertising facilities; administrators of condominium and subdivision homeowners associations; general managers of hotels, resorts, and golf and country clubs; registrar of deeds; educators; builders such as developers, architects, interior designers, construction consultants; valuers such as appraisers, assessors; documenters such as liaison officers, publishers of real estate classified ads, photographers; and scholars.

Realter Society members get the following rights: (1) the right to use the patented Realter and Rltr professional titles and logo, (2) the right to enjoy the award policy of Realter Society, and (3) the right to wear exclusive insignia products of Realter Society.

A person with a Rltr title before his/her name need not explain too much that he/she is in the real estate sector. The Rltr title bearer enjoys the automatic public perception that he/she is a real estate service practitioner.

Rltr title operates like a powerful slogan; it is short, easily said, catchy, and has quick recall factor. Since it is a new title, having it in your business card would trigger curiosity, then it becomes a conversation starter which can possibly propagate to customer inquiries that may open up a wide door of business opportunities for the Rltr® title-bearer.

Realter Society is designed solely as REGISTRY of the Rltr® title users. Realter Society does NOT offer real estate products (such as house, lots, condo units, burial lots, etc.) nor services (such as agency, appraisal, build consultancy, etc.). Realter Society has no intention to compete with the respective businesses and organizations of its individual members.

The individual membership registration fee in Realter Society is P2.00 per day, prorated from the day the person registers up to the general renewal date of 28 September 2022. Incumbent Assessors of Local Government Units and Regional Directors of Registry of Deeds are exempted from the membership fee.

Petalcorin, born in Maramag Bukidnon PH in 1973, a product of the College of Economics and Management of the University of the Philippines at Los Banos, and a licensed real estate broker since 1998 specialized in pro bono consumer rights advocacy and peer coaching.

Several eminent Industry professionals and entrepreneurs attended the event. Mr. Sharad Sharma, Chair, Nasscom Product Forum and former CEO of Yahoo India R&D unveiled the book and shared his thoughts. Mr. S.R.

Bangalore, India, December 06, 2012 — Naveen Lakkur, along with Lone Tree Publishers launched his brainchild ‘Inseparable Twins’ on 25th November 2012. The book launch was held at Lalit Ashok Bangalore.

About the book
Inseparable Twins
Paired Principles to Inspire Young Minds
Innovation resides in everyone. Innovative potential in a person cannot be fully realized if it is not properly nurtured. It takes determined efforts to do so. If that spirit is not cultivated in a timely and disciplined manner, then a person may lose faith in his/her ability or even struggle needlessly. Naveen Lakkur created this book with his unique set of a dozen paired codes primarily to rekindle that innate energy in every one of us; to enable all members of a team working towards a shared goal to realize their full potential and enjoy their journey towards that goal, be it an intrapreneurial or entrepreneurial mission. It is especially targeted at young minds that have that unstoppable zeal so as to help them avoid many of the hurdles and pitfalls that they will encounter in the pursuit of any ambitious goal.

Everyone has limited time and the attention span is even less these days. Yet, there is one communication system that continues to capture the time, attention and imagination of human beings since the dawn of mankind – and that is the art of story-telling. Rather than offer these twin principles in a dry, academic, typically business book way, the author is offering them to you in the form of a set of parables in an easy to read and lucid style. These are interesting stories unraveling these paired tenets through the experienced eyes of two elephants, Appy & Proppy, whose chance meeting with a man called Lucky stimulates a series of conversations about the twelve twins. Each one of the twelve paired thoughts has the potential to inspire anyone to renew their energy that power People, Purpose & Performance.

You can visit the facebook page of the book here

About the author Naveen Lakkur:
Naveen Lakkur, an entrepreneur, an enabler, and an energizer. “Converting Creative Concepts into Commerce with Compassion” is a one-line intro of Naveen. With over 20 years of professional experience spread worldwide, he has been instrumental in fostering over 24 concepts to have become commercial realities globally. He is very passionate about fostering Social Entrepreneurs and actively participates in social projects with the objective of making life a wonderful one to live.

FPL Partners with Indian River State College to Launch Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship

“Since the program was developed, we have hired over 60 trained individuals and promoted 24 existing employees because of the skills and knowledge they gained here at IRSC,” Mano Nazar, FPL’s Nuclear Division executive vice president and chief nuclear officer.

Juno Beach, FL (April 13, 2012) — The next generation of FPL nuclear technicians and engineers could very well get their start at Indian River State College’s (IRSC) new Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

The $21.5 million, 65,000 square foot facility at IRSC’s Ft. Pierce campus represents a unique partnership between the college and local business partners, including FPL.

The Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship will focus on educational programs in alternative energy and sustainability. Students will learn how to produce biofuels, construct photovoltaic solar cells, experiment with light technologies, and gain hands-on experience in all aspects of energy efficient building construction.

The center will also feature a nuclear simulator complete with a control room that will help train students to work at Florida Power & Light’s St. Lucie or Turkey Point nuclear power plants. The college received a $3.1 million grant from the National Science Foundation to train instructors who will then train students.

The program includes a partnership of schools from 18 states.

FPL donated equipment so students can get real-life experience in a controlled environment.

“I think it’s going to play a big part moving into the future,” IRSC President Ed Massey told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers. “By housing the nuclear energy program and the power plant operations program in partnership with Florida Power & Light, again it is meeting a high demand need in our area and putting people in high skill, high-wage paying jobs available in that industry.”

The Brown Center represents an extension of the partnership FPL has built with IRSC over the past six years, helping to train students in nuclear technology and place them in jobs immediately following graduation.

“Our partnership with IRSC has been a win-win,” said Mano Nazar, FPL’s Nuclear Division executive vice president and chief nuclear officer. “Since the program was developed in 2006 in partnership with the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and IRSC, we have hired over 60 trained individuals and promoted 24 existing employees because of the skills and knowledge they gained here at IRSC. This is a great example of how an innovative partnership like this one can really make a difference.”

FPL serves 4.5 million customer accounts in Florida and is a leading employer in the state with approximately 10,000 employees.
