London (PRWEB) January 06, 2014

Apperson DataLink is giving educators affordable, smart and friendly solutions to assess performance, monitor student progress and measure success. With over 40,000 DataLink scanners in use globally and 20 years in classroom assessment their methods have been proven to be successful.

Apperson (booth #F501) is eager to be attending BETT 2014 in London and demonstrate to international educators that Apperson’s DataLink scanners are the most complete and affordable solution for capturing data from paper assessments. From the individual instructor to the central test center administrator, Apperson scanner technology is rapid, reliable – and easily connects paper to digital in every classroom.

All of the DataLink scanners come with DataLink Connect, a test scoring and reporting software. Educators can use test results provided by DataLink Connect to guide their instruction and monitor student’s learning. Through analysis of the test results, specific strengths and weaknesses in an individual student or class can be exposed.

Apperson scanners offer the proven and accurate Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) technology, which is a response-choice technology that is the most common, quickest, easiest and least expensive form of data collection.

“Our scanners will easily read students’ test sheets and can export the data in any format a school or educator chooses,” said Bill Apperson, Chairman of the Board for Apperson. “The accuracy level exceeds 99% and it requires very little human intervention, thereby reducing the overall costs.”

When analyzed, test results will allow educators to see what their students know and don’t know. Test analysis tools dramatically increase a teacher’s capacity to monitor learning and increase students’ learning trajectories.

Apperson’s focus on precision and reliability has become a natural fit for K-12, higher education and workplace learning for over 20 years.

This is Apperson DataLink’s first year attending BETT London and marks one of the first steps towards expanding into a more global market. Apperson is excited to connect with potential customers and find new global partners. Stop by booth F501 to learn more while at BETT.

Hales Global CEO Promises to Capture Larger Federal Government Contracts in 2014

Hales Global CEO Promises to Capture Larger Federal Government Contracts in 2014











Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 02, 2014

“As the federal government services market reshapes, Larry Hales, CEO of Hales Global Group LLC, said he is reforming the contractor to match”. Company officials said they wanted a greater focus on business development in a more competitive market.

“We’ve always been good at winning federal government contracts for our clients,” Hales said. “Now, we’re going to win even larger federal contracts.” The decision to capture larger contracts were the results of the recent new two-year contract extension Hales Global Group LLC, received from World Energy Center, a client from the early part of 2009.

World Energy Center is a world-class consortium of more than 30 companies, cities, colleges, participants’ partners and affiliates. The collaborative team, assembled and managed by World Energy USA collectively employs more than 1,000,000 people and generate annual revenues in excess of $ 250 billion. The Center’s comprehensive approach aims to solve the challenges facing the clean energy industry and collaborates with several leading universities and colleges to rapidly advance clean energy research, educational curriculum’s and job training programs. At present, the World Energy team consists of: The City of Palmdale, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Inland Energy, Boston Capital, Becnor, Siemens, Clean Energy Trust, AMEC, Distributed Energy Management, Hales Global Group, Homeboy Industries, Manchester Associates, BYD, Satcon, University of Notre Dame, University of Southern California, Concentrix Solar, Areva, GreenWorld Capital, Entech Solar, Sol Focus, Green Path, Walters Power, United Airports, Alstom Power, AECOM, MindHarbor, O’Melvency & Myers and is expanding.

We have been providing business development and other services to the Government contracting community since 1975. We help our clients focus on the right agencies, programs, contracts and teaming partners where their solutions have the best fit for a contract. We identify, develop, and execute strategic business development opportunities for clients using a wide variety of innovative communication tools.

In China Wanxiang is the largest manufacturer of medium/large size silicon ingot and wafer cutting. The Wanxiang America division is located outside of Chicago and has two large assembly facilities. In Washington Hales Global has spearheaded high level meetings. The Wanxiang America’s leaders have had meetings at the White House, Department of Energy and with select members of Congress. The firm goal is to lead America in solar energy panels and LED lighting.

Recently at a meeting in Washington, DC Nico Wills, CEO of Quality Attributes Software stated.

“QAS (Quality Attributes Software) has committed to building its business model and practice around the energy sustainability effort.” QAS supports the Administration’ effort to support renewable and alternative energy sources, as it becomes an increasing important component in the energy planning and decision process.” “Over the years Larry Hales intelligence, experience and formidable work ethics have been indispensable to our firm.” Smaller clients such as Sidel Systems, FAL, and DNC Solutions have also been positioned to capture large federal contracts.

As United States Secretary of Energy, Dr. Ernest Moniz is tasked with implementing the Department’s mission in support of President Obama’s goals of growing the economy, enhancing security and protecting the environment; World Energy not only advances all of President’s Obama’s energy strategy but promotes American leadership in science and clean energy technology innovation while reaching to meet the world’s energy needs using clean technology.

Under the leadership of Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, the U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service’s Global Energy industry initiative seeks the most recent market research in Power Generation, and Renewable Energy industries, we believe that the following divisional support operations will be the working solution.http://www.hales-globalgroup.com http://www.halesmanagement.com

International Grief Therapist: Give up the New Year’s Resolution: Be Honest with What Can Be Accomplished: 10 Tools to Implement Change

International Grief Therapist: Give up the New Year’s Resolution: Be Honest with What Can Be Accomplished: 10 Tools to Implement Change











Be honest with what can be accomplished


New York, New York (PRWEB) December 30, 2013

In a culture where mindfulness and being in the moment are heralded as the key to inner peace and joy, isn’t it curious that as 2013 comes to a close, people in the USA and Europe tend to create a roadmap of resolutions for the New Year. The talk of losing weight, joining a gym, finding a relationship, and changing jobs are just some of the promises made to the self, the family and friends. How often are the resolutions actually followed through?

Edy Nathan MA, LCSW gives an example of New Year resolution “fibs”. Let’s look at the statistics of gym memberships from January to March. Bought in December, most newcomers arrive January 1 and by March most are out the door. Never to be seen again. Though the intention is there, the follow through is not. It is the follow through from intention to integrity that ultimately creates a platform for success in the New Year.

Endings and beginnings: The end of 2013 and the beginning of 2014. Don’t be a liar in 2014. Find the truth.

Nathan explains that too often a year is left behind without much thought. To be successful in the New Year, it is helpful to understand the hurdles faced and the accomplishments made in 2013. In order to do this it is important to create a roadmap for success in the new year.

5 Tools for Closure with 2013:

1.    Make a list of all accomplishments made in the year.

2.    Are there any regrets? If so, what were they and is there anything that can be done to clean them up? If there is, then do what is needed to reverse the regret into regrowth.

3.    What was learned in the year?

4.    What is the truth about how prior resolutions were handled? Of the resolutions, what actually occurred?

5.    Specify what changes were made that affected the mind, body, social interaction and work life. Were the shifts encouraging life transitions or were they compressing?

5 Tools For Beginnings and Success in 2014:

1.    Be realistic about what can be achieved.

2.    Tell the truth about the goals desired to achieve.

3.    Create a calendar of what will be accomplished: set up reminders about the dates, times and outcome desired. This can be done on any of your mobile devices.

4.    Picture the desired outcome. See it, plan it and make it happen. When obstacles get in the way, be spontaneous and a problem solver. Plans can take many twists it does not mean the ideal is dead. If one way does not work, try another.

5.    Push beyond the zone of comfort. If it’s comfortable, seems like the goal is diminishing, find ways to re-energize. Nathan states, “This includes bringing others into the creation of the goal and remember this is about your integrity.”

And remember what Saint Bernard of Clairvaux said: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

About Edy Nathan:

Edy Nathan is a licensed psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience specializing in the integration of psychotherapy and the world of spirituality. For two seasons she was the therapist on the A&E TV Show, “Psychic Kids”. She holds Masters from both New York University and Fordham University. She has post-graduate training from the Ackerman Institute for Family Therapy, The Gestalt Center and the Jungian Institute. She is a certified EMDR practitioner, regression therapist, certified hypnotherapist and grief expert. To find out more, visit EdyNathan.com.

IntimateRider Offering New On-Line Benefits

IntimateRider Offering New On-Line Benefits











www.intimaterider.com


Burnsville MN (PRWEB) December 29, 2013

IntimateRider, a national firm that specializes in developing and distributing healthy, safe sex products for men and women with physical disabilities, is offering men and women around the United States new on-line benefits. In addition to gaining the chance to win free products, customers who sign up for the giveaways, will also receive details about the company’s latest special offers.

To sign up for the opportunity to win free products each month and to remain aware of special deals, including sales and membership discounts, adults must provide their name and email address. Because IntimateRider respects its customers’ information, the data is not shared with external business parties.

Products customers could potentially win include the RiderMate and the bestselling IntimateRider, a revolutionary sitting device designed with patented technology to accommodate couples who have physical challenges like muscular dystrophy, arthritis, cerebral palsy and spinal cord injuries. These products may help remove long standing stereotypes.

According to MedScape, “Sexuality and sexual dysfunction in patients with physical or neurologic disabilities are often overlooked by medical personnel, but they are topics of great importance to the patient and to those with whom he/she shares significant relationships.” One of the largest stereotypes about people with physical disabilities concerns their desire for sexual intimacy, namely the myth about “people with disabilities is that they are less sexual than are persons without disabilities.”

Removing stereotypes, will take ongoing education and effort. Furthermore, to achieve heightened sexual experiences, couples may need external support, the kind that doesn’t always come in a prescription pill. Designed to be used with the IntimateRider, the Rider Mate helps couples enhance their intimate experiences by making it physically easier for them to have more mobility. This portable device is 38 inches in width; the height of the product is 14.75 inches. However, folded the product is three feet long.

Also a part of the IntimateRider monthly giveaways, the Rider Mate easily fits inside an automobile trunk. Because it is collapsible, it also fits in a closet or beneath a bed, providing couples more regular living space. Each IntimateRider product comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, giving customers a risk free chance to introduce themselves to the products.

Accessories customers could win after they join the company’s email distribution list include the new Tenga Male Stimulator, a travel bag, a positioning support strap and a seat cushion. The cushion is designed to be used with larger IntimateRider products like the IntimateRider Adventure Set.

APS Fulfillment, Inc., South Florida’s Leading Fulfillment Company, Announces Top Industry Challenges in 2014 as the Economy Improves


Miami, FL (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

APS Fulfillment, Inc. (http://www.APSFulfillment.com), one of the nation’s leading cost-effective fulfillment and integrated direct mail marketing companies, is announcing the top industry challenges for 2014 as the U.S. economy improves.

Many retailers are enjoying a robust holiday season. Sales at traditional brick-and-mortar stores on Thanksgiving and Black Friday combined rose to an estimated $ 12.3 billion. Over the same two days, online sales also increased significantly to almost $ 2.0 billion. Record online shopping continued on Cyber Monday, where sales increased 16% year-over-year to $ 2.29 billion. (Source: “Holiday 2013 – Cyber Monday and Cyber Five FINAL,” ChannelAdvisor Blog, December 3, 2013; http://ebaystrategies.blogs.com/ebay_strategies/2013/12/holiday-2013-cyber-monday-and-cyber-five-final.html.)

“The increase in spending this holiday season is being supported by the improving job market and stronger consumer confidence levels,” says Charles Aultman, president of APS Fulfillment, Inc. “That said, brands cannot rest on their laurels of the current holiday sales; they need to challenge their business and ecommerce initiatives in 2014 to improve across several areas, including distribution, inventory management, and shipping.”

Aultman theorizes that a major challenge for retailers in 2014 may be how to offer their consumers the best shipping experience. Thanks to the Internet, competition in the retail environment has become increasingly fierce; consumers don’t want to just receive what they ordered; they also expect shipping to be fast and free.

“When it comes to a brand’s reputation, few factors are as important as the speed and accuracy of an order. That’s why finding the right fulfillment services company will become more and more important in 2014,” he notes. “In order to exceed a customer’s needs, brands need to use a fulfillment services company that is located near major transportation hubs to meet their challenges.”

Centrally located in Southern Florida, APS Fulfillment, Inc. is just minutes from Interstate 95, 18 minutes from the Port Everglades, and 20 minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. It is also just 40 minutes from the Miami International Airport and Port of Miami. Ft. Lauderdale and Miami are two of North America’s largest export hubs and are in close proximity to South America, the Panama Canal, and Europe.

“When time is of the essence, it’s encouraging to know that a fulfillment company like APS Fulfillment, Inc. can have their customers’ products received, inventoried, and shipped in just two days,” Aultman adds. “Keeping customers happy with free shipping is more or less contingent upon a minimum purchase and maximum weight requirements and restrictions. Those kinds of parameters are best handled by a fulfillment company with dedicated distribution and project management services.”

“Even though shoppers will continue to head to the stores, they are increasingly using online channels to finish or supplement their purchases,” he concludes. “Now more than ever, brands need to offer consumers a seamless experience across all sales channels.

IK Multimedia Releases GrooveMaker 2: The Evolution of the Revolutionary Loop-based Music Making App for iPhone and iPod Touch

IK Multimedia Releases GrooveMaker 2: The Evolution of the Revolutionary Loop-based Music Making App for iPhone and iPod Touch











GrooveMaker 2 for iPhone and iPad

Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) December 19, 2013

IK Multimedia, the leader in mobile music-creation apps and accessories for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, is pleased to announce GrooveMaker 2 for iPhone and iPod touch, the most powerful mobile loop based music making app with a patented “groove generator” engine that lets anyone create professional quality non-stop grooves, beats and songs in real time with no previous music-making experience required. GrooveMaker 2 provides a completely new and intuitive way of making music by using groups of loops called songs (60 loops per song) that always sound good together, and users use these to build grooves and complete songs. GrooveMaker 2 gives users total control over the creation, mixing and remixing process from a newly designed iOS 7 style interface and intuitive controls, loop import, automatic mixing controls, loop effects, mastering effects, groove sequencing and export controls. With GrooveMaker 2, anyone can make music and be a DJ, anywhere, any time.

Millions of Groove Possibilities

GrooveMaker 2 ushers in over 3,600 available loops from a continually expanding library of over 60 collections for virtually every style of groove music including House, DubStep, Hip Hop, Techno, Electro, D’n’B, Trance, Reggae, Reggaeton, Rock, and artist’s packs from Ace of Skunk Anansie, Chris Domingo and Cool & Dre and more. For previous users, GrooveMaker now features just one app that houses all of the loop collections, and all previous purchases of GrooveMaker styles are unlocked when the app is registered and available from within one convenient app.

Tons of New Power-User Features

GrooveMaker 2 excels as a live DJ performance tool and mobile composition app. For re-mixing on the fly, the new Grid Interface allows users to switch individual loops with a quick touch in the track, or “draw” a completely new groove simply by dragging a finger across the screen. “Drawing” on the grid selects the loop associated with the available slot under the user’s touch and does it in real time so GrooveMaker is always in time and on the beat. GrooveMaker now lets users set the length of the individual loops and entire grooves down to 1/4 of a bar, providing more creative flexibility when composing, building and layering grooves and creating songs. GrooveMaker 2 features a pro-quality proprietary time-stretch engine that allows complete control over tempo without affecting pitch. Tempos can be modified up to 200% and down to 50% without change to the original tones and pitch of the loops.

Effectual Healing

GrooveMaker 2 also features a suite of up to 16 effects users can apply “on the fly” to mixes and grooves. Plus, GrooveMaker 2 now gives users the creative flexibility of being able to record the automation of the application and parameters of the effects during playback for an added level of freedom. Effect parameters are touch-controlled on an XY field and each effect has additional parameters and features from which to choose. The groove effects include the staple effects like delay, reverb, filter, flange and wah, but also specialized effects designed for live DJ performance like stutter, noise, twist, tail, brake and spin. GrooveMaker 2 also features a master effects section for tightening up and polishing your final sequences.

Import Export

One of the most requested features is now fully implemented in GrooveMaker 2: audio recording and audio import. Users can now add their own sounds and loops to the currently selected song using the record feature, or import audio loops via file share, the device music library, audio paste or from a computer using wifi. This further expands the creative possibilities within GrooveMaker and gives artists total flexibility when composing grooves. Users can also use the Record feature to record an entire GrooveMaker performance for sharing and further sequencing. GrooveMaker 2 is also fully AudioBus, Inter-App Audio and X-Sync compatible for use with other audio apps.

GrooveMaker provides a complete loop-based music production environment from creation to final delivery. Users can use GrooveMaker in a live setting for real-time creation of grooves and non-stop dance music and record that performance for later reproduction. GrooveMaker is also an indispensable tool for scoring mobile and home movies on the go, or creating non-stop groove and dance beat tracks for any activity, or DJ’ing the party… all on one mobile device in one convenient pro quality app.
