Carbondale, IL, September 19, 2017 – Potentia Analytics, Inc., a leading provider of intelligent healthcare software, is pleased to announce its sponsorship of the 2017 HackSI event that will take place on November 4th & 5th at Southern Illinois University’s Dunn-Richmond Center in Carbondale, IL.

From drones to robots, HackSI shows that technology can be fun as well as educational.   A hackathon is an event in which software developers, designers and project managers collaborate on software projects. During the event attendees design, build and show off their creations to a group of fellow techies who will appreciate what they have built. Some very interesting new technologies have come out of hackathons all over the world. It doesn’t matter what they build, the important part is that they learned something while doing it. HackSI has had past winners that had never programmed anything before and ended up building one of the best hacks of the day. Many of the participants go on to tech related job fields based on their experiences at HackSI.   “We are very excited for Potentia Analytics to join us this year as a “10 GB” sponsor! Since its inception, HackSI has grown into a vibrant community of more than 250 hackers aged 7 to 70. With the support and participation of local tech companies we can continue to grow our event. HackSI highlights the talent that already exists in Southern Illinois as well as introduces people to a potential future in tech that they may not have previously considered.” Dav Glass, Founder and Hacker in Charge, HackSI.   “As a participant in other Hackathons in the past, I knew that as one of the few local software technology companies we had to get involved to support what Dav and his team are doing. Hackathons are fun-filled environments that spark amazing ideas and encourage collaborating to make those ideas into reality. These hackers are the future innovators and we hope that they will choose to make Southern Illinois their home for their world changing startups!” Berardino E.

“Time is for Dragonflies and Angels” by J.M. Erickson Win’s Gold at Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards

Posted by on Sep 4, 2017 in Health | Comments Off on “Time is for Dragonflies and Angels” by J.M. Erickson Win’s Gold at Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards

“Time is for Dragonflies and Angels” by J.M. Erickson Win’s Gold at Readers’ Favorite International Book Awards

J.M. Erickson’s Time is for Dragonflies and Angels wins gold medal in the fiction anthology category at the Readers’ Favorite 2017 International Book Award Contest. Time is for Dragonflies and Angels is a collection of flash science fiction and novellas that embraces the ideas of multi-universes and dimensions, critical decisions and judgments, and human struggles associated with racism and dystopian societies. Divine Zape, Reader’s Favorite Reviewer describes this award-winning anthology well: “Time is for Dragonflies and Angels by J.M. Erickson is a beautiful offering for fans of sci-fi and fantasy who are also into short stories and novellas. The collection features powerful themes, including parallel universes, man’s struggle to come to grips with his human predicament, racial discrimination, and many more. This collection has a lot to offer readers with diverse tastes. Those who enjoy dystopian themes will feel very comfortable with Rogue Event featuring the game that many people are familiar with, the struggle for control where a select group wants to control the workings of the lives of others. Read about a widower and an autistic young man in a one-of-a-kind adventure to find meaning in Recount Our Dreams. The Gray is a moving tale that features the mechanics of bias, of racism, and beautifully portrays how a group can elect itself as the judge of others based on what makes them look different. And there is more!” Time is for Dragonflies and Angels has garnered more critical praise: “Time is for Dragonflies and Angels, the new book from sci fi author J.M. Erickson is a collection of short stories in the tradition of the classic science fiction writing compendiums, evoking well-loved writers such as Aldous Huxley and George Orwell, with clear influences from other giants of the genre as we go along.” – Self-Publishing Review “This book falls into that rare group that tells unexpected and original stories that don’t rely on cliché’s or overused plot devices – nice, especially in the Sci-Fi genre where it is hard to find really unique plotlines and genuine character development.” – Indie Book Reviewers “In every story, the author displays bright moments of humor alongside darker bits of existential dread. His stories succeed on two levels, both as diverting bits of adventure and as deeper commentary on our modern life.” – Pacific Book Reviewer About the Author In addition to creating the Birds of Flight series and the other award-winning science fiction stories Future Prometheus and Intelligent Design, Erickson holds a BA in psychology and sociology from Boston College, a master’s degree in psychiatric social work from the Simmons School of Social Work, and post-graduate certification in post-trauma treatment from Boston University School of Social Work. Certified in cognitive behavioral treatment and a post-trauma specialist, he is also a senior instructor of psychology and counseling at Cambridge College and a senior therapist in a clinical group practice in the Merrimack Valley, Massachusetts.

Ed Asner’s 1st Hand Experiences with Autism

Posted by on Sep 1, 2017 in Health | Comments Off on Ed Asner’s 1st Hand Experiences with Autism

Ed Asner’s 1st Hand Experiences with Autism

The Ed Asner & Friends Poker Tournament is just around the corner coming up on Sept. 9th, 2017 at the Haworth Showroom in DTLA.  It is shaping up to be a doozy.  Why? It could be the growing list of celebrity guests.  Confirmed so far are Dylan McDermott, Lou Diamond Philips, Rosie O’Donnell, Eric Roberts, Thomas Gibson, Michael McKean, Elizabeth J. Carlisle, Holly Robinson Peete, Mathew Modine, Randy Rainbow, Sebastian Bach, Patricia Heaton, Greg Grunberg, Ivy Teves, Eric Handler, Maureen McCormick, Roger Cross, Jay Flats, Leyna Nguyen, Mark Thompson and Andy Dick. It could be that it doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or an expert poker player or whether you win or lose because you’re having fun for a good cause.  For those that don’t care to play poker you can still have gaming pleasure from pai-gow poker as long as you know the difference between an ace and a deuce.  It could be that your mouth is watering from the delectable appetizers provided by David’s Catering or the tantalizing aromas from the expresso and dessert bar.  If wine is your thing, it could be the Wine Pull where for $20 you will get a bottle of wine.  Among others, the wine you pull could be the 1 of the 6 donated by wineLA.com including their signature BeeKeeper Zin.  WineLA hosts the most upscale wine events in the L.A. area and you could bid for one of their Wine tasting classes.  A wine class can only be win-win.  The friendly Friends of the Vine in Redondo Beach has donated 5 bottles ranging from $25-$55.  The wines from Total Wines are all discounted 30%.  Winemaker Michelle Lafond from the Santa Barbara Winery and her own Lafond Winery has donated a bottle from each label.  DirectCellars.com/AlcoholGSH.com  will also be donating bottles.  It could be the hosted AlcoholGSH.com Lounge. Their Brand Ambassadors will not only be serving alcoholic beverages but enlighten you to their proprietary scientific breakthrough supplement which when taken during imbibing will enable you to feel better and be healthier.  Their MaxVodka is a healthier cocktail although that may sound like an oxymoron.   It could be that tequila aficionados will be treated to tasting Oro Imperial, the Gold Medal Winner of the 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.  It could be that 1st place is a stay at the Pumpjack in Palm Springs and 2 round-trip domestic tickets on Southwest Airlines or the Opportunity drawings for a variety of products and services ranging from VIP concert tickets to a $2500 broche.  It could be the priceless signed 2010 Championship photo of Derek Fisher and Kobe Bryant donated by Dr. Jerry Buss’ lifelong business partner Frank Mariani. It could be one or more of the above but those are all frills.  This event is going to be a doozy because of you.  Whether you play poker, attend, donate, or just read this article, you are going to be enriched by learning or being just a little bit more aware of autism and the work of Autism Society.  Winner of 7 prime-time Emmys, Ed Asner told me that autism entered his into life at a later age with a second family.  Not knowing what it was caused him misunderstanding, concern, mistrust, anger, and legal battles with his son Charlie’s mother. ...

Trinity Exteriors, Inc Named 2017 Finalist for BBB Torch Award For Ethics

Eden Prairie, MN — Restoration contractor Trinity Exteriors, Inc has been named a 2017 Finalist for the BBB Torch Awards for Ethics. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) presents Torch Awards for Ethics each year to for-profit companies owned or operated in Minnesota and North Dakota that display integrity in all aspects of their operations. Nominees are offered the opportunity to submit an entry to BBB, where a panel of independent volunteer business and community leaders review the entries and choose the winners. Nominees must be in good standing with BBB; however accreditation is not a requirement to compete for the award. “It is an honor to be named a finalist. We have a great group of people that work day in and day out to ensure our customers have a great experience,” says Ted Swanson, owner of Trinity Exteriors. Ethical business practices and integrity are the pillars of Trinity Exteriors’ success. The company’s structure for employees means salespeople have the time to listen to homeowners and help them, rather than using high-pressure techniques to push sales, and all employees have the health and retirement benefits. Team Trinity furthers its reach and impact in the community by donating a portion of every sale to the Shriners Hospitals for Children — Twin Cities, as well as the Toys For Tots. On company-wide community outreach days, employees volunteer together for causes such as the Salvation Army, People Reaching Out to People (PROP), and Household & Outdoor Maintenance for the Elderly (HOME). Additionally, Trinity Exteriors, in partnership with Owens Corning and Roof Depot, donated a roof to the Veterans Rest Camp in Marine on St. Croix in 2015.

‘President Trump, May I ask you a question’ is the Must Read Book for 2017 where “We the People” question the president.

President Donald J. Trump has demonstrated over and over how far he is willing to go to control the narrative around the performance of his presidency and administration for consumption by the American people.  Take this journey with the American people through this first ever of its kind book of questions with over 100 thought provoking images and over 500 questions that allows the reader to develop their own narrative. This book is sure to be on the “required reading” list across college campuses and a “must read” for political, social media and news groups as an innovative way of engaging an audience of readers to experience a book through a journey of questions rather than a journey of narratives. For the first time in book format readers will be able to assemble their own facts, thoughts, opinions, information and experience in a way that allows them to create their own narrative page after thought-provoking page which by default becomes to a degree unquestionable because it is the reader’s narrative. Join millions of Americans as they take the journey along with President Donald J. Trump through over 100 thought provoking images and more than 500 questions examining the performance of his presidency and administration in a first ever of its kind Book of Questions. The American people have exhausted attempt after attempt to appeal to the compassion and decency in President Trump and his administration on key decisions like healthcare, immigration, border wall, global warming and living wage and encountered a brick wall at every turn.  He has been effective in using his Brand (Trump), the Brand of office (President) and the strength of the party (Republican) to dominate and control the narrative communicated to the American people and conveniently dismiss requests for reconsideration. ‘Mr. President, May I ask you a question’ is a voice of the American people taking a stand and asking the tough questions of the President. Take the journey with us as we exercise our “We the People” voice in requesting that President Donald J. Trump confront the optics and questions that he has placed on the minds of many Americans. Get your copy now and join the voice of “We The People.”...

Say Hello To The Ultimate Multi-Functional Sterilizing Toothbrush Station

Say Hello To The Ultimate Multi-Functional Sterilizing Toothbrush Station

The design team at Puretta Technology Co., LTD is excited to share the news of their official release of the Puretta Multifunctional Toothbrush Station. Bathrooms are a scary place to keep your toothbrush, even though that’s where everyone is prone to keep them. Every day our toothbrushes are exposed to invisible germs and bacteria that fill every corner and are continually exposed to the splash zone, which in turn can be downright disgusting and harmful to you and your loved ones health. That’s why the creators of Puretta chose to design a new modern, eco-friendly technology for improving both your bathroom cleanliness and personal health and hygiene.   Say Hello to the Puretta. This smart toothbrush station brings a new level of clean, both certified and tested to kill 99.9% of germs and bacteria via UV light; The light is powered by a solar panel, which removes the need for those unsightly and potentially hazardous cables around your bathroom sink and wall outlet. Also the station provides room for up to 4 toothbrushes, and a back rack area for razors, dental floss, and teeth cleaning utensils of choice. The station offers a universal toothpaste insert to fit every shape and size of toothpaste out there, along with a smart infrared light that will automatically shut off the UV cleaning process whenever someone enters its proximity.   As toothbrushes advance, with more designs now on the market shelves than one can count, it only makes sense that our ability to keep our toothbrushes and bathrooms clean would be the next big priority. The Puretta has you covered.   The Puretta will officially launch on Kickstarter on August 15th, 9AM PST. To receive a sample of the toothbrush station for review and more details, please contact John Messier of the Puretta design team.     Contact Information:   Name: John Messier Email: hello@purettadesign.com Phone: 1 (512) 333-2950 Facebook: @purettadesign Website: www.purettadesign.com On Kickstarter:  August 15th, 9AM PST General Press Kit:...
