Developers Cite Software as Greatest Threat to IoT Security

Written by admin on Apr 29th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

SANTA CRUZ, CA. April 29, 2016 When working with Internet of Things applications, security becomes of paramount importance, and 31% of developers active in the IoT space believe that the greatest trouble spot for IoT security lies within the software or firmware for connected devices, according to Evans Data’s recent Internet of Things Development survey.  The survey of over 500 IoT developers also showed that over half (55%) thought that security was “extremely important” to their organizations, with 32% saying it is “somewhat important”. 

Other major security threats cited for IoT development included exposing data to mobile clients (22%) transmission of data through a network or cloud (16.7%) and the physical security of devices (13.8%)

“Security is without doubt the most serious problem that developers face with Internet of Things and for good reason,” said Janel Garvin, CEO of Evans Data. “With IoT and connected devices we’re bringing software out of the computer and into the real world, where cyber attacks or hacking can bring real world consequences.  Developers understand this and take it quite seriously.”

Developers are employing a number of security mechanisms to combat security threats; the most commonly cited being context-aware access control, endpoint threat detection, real-time security analytics, and Cloud access security control.

Evans Data’s Internet of Things Vertical service is a continuing research service that delivers eight reports per year on overall global IoT trends, IoT and Mobility, IoT and the Cloud, and IoT and Big Data.  All reports are original primary research and reflect the opinions of developers focused on IoT.

AIM Coalition Applauds Re-introduction of Bill to Curb Physician Self-Referral of Ancillary Services

Written by admin on Apr 29th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Medical Groups Unite to Realign Incentives for Physician Self-Referral and Remove Certain Services from In-Office Ancillary Services (IOAS) Exception to the Medicare Self-Referral Statute

A Statement from the Alliance for Integrity in Medicare (AIM)

April 29, 2016

(Washington, DC) – A broad coalition of medical organizations praised Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA14) today following the Congresswoman’s introduction of H.R. 5088, The Promoting Integrity in Medicare Act (PIMA) of 2016, that proposes to realign the financial incentives for physicians to self-refer for ancillary services by eliminating certain services from an exception in the Medicare self-referral statute, known as the Stark Act.  Enacting such changes would save the Medicare program an estimated $3.3 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO). AIM applauds the Congresswoman’s continued strong leadership on this issue, which dates to her tenure in the California Assembly.

 

PIMA notes that “recent studies by the Government Accounting Office (GAO) examining self-referral practices in advanced diagnostic imaging and anatomic pathology determined that financial incentives were the most likely cause of increases in self-referrals.” The Alliance for Integrity in Medicare (AIM) long has supported the removal of anatomic pathology, advanced diagnostic imaging, physical therapy, and radiation therapy from the physician self-referral law’s In-office Ancillary Services (IOAS) exception.  Narrowing the IOAS exception will improve patient care and choice for beneficiaries, while protecting the integrity of the Medicare program overall.

 

Last year, in letters delivered to key House and Senate committees and congressional leadership, the Coalition stated with regard to the exclusion of specific services from the IOAS exception, “In addition to improving patient care and reducing inappropriate utilization of health care services, enactment of this policy will generate substantial savings to the Medicare program….”

 

Intended to encourage patient convenience, the IOAS exception was created to allow a limited number of common health care services to be performed during office visits, such as routine lab tests and x-rays, so that Medicare beneficiaries may be diagnosed and treated expeditiously—and PIMA will not preclude those services. The bill states, “Those services intended to be covered under the IOAS exception are not affected by this legislation.”  Additionally, the ability of truly integrated, collaborative multi-specialty groups to operate as they do today will be preserved, as would the existing rural exception.

 

Furthermore, reforming the IOAS exception through the passage of The Promoting Integrity in Medicare Act of 2016 will ensure Medicare patients receive the highest quality and safest health care most appropriate to their needs, and that Medicare policy incentives are properly aligned saving millions of dollars, which is in the best interests of beneficiaries, providers, and our nation’s health care system overall.

No Regrets Personal Training Release Kit To Overcome Debilitating Back Pain

Written by admin on Apr 29th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Based off years of research and practical application in a gym and rehabilitation setting, the Back Pain Secrets Tool Kit has been designed to address this common yet debilitating issue. Released by No Regrets Personal Training and available now, the video and eBook set outlines easy to follow stretches, mobilisation techniques and stability exercises that can easily be performed at home. The program also addresses a significant point – that in most back pain cases, the condition is caused by a simple movement pattern dysfunction such as an incorrect office set-up, crossing your legs too often or poor footwear. For more information and to purchase please visit: http://www.noregretspt.com.au/index.php/resources/blog/43-2014/222-bulging-disc-exercises-effective-long-term-treatment-strategies

The back serves two main functions – stability and mobility. As a stable base for the entire body, the back allows us to stand upright, absorb shock when we walk or run, and protect the spinal cord. The spine is made of lots of small segments, all connected with muscles, tendons and ligaments, which allows us to move in all directions. Problems arise when there is too much stability or mobility, or the wrong kind of either (such as sitting for too long and bending in awkward ways) as they will start to unbalance the complex structures supporting the spine. This can set off a chain reaction that can lead to stiffness, tightness, weakness and pain.

Sedentary lifestyles coupled with an allopathic approach to merely treating symptoms has led this injury to reach a point where 9 out of 10 adults will experience back point at some point in their life. Causes of back pain include crossing your legs too often, standing unevenly, poor office set-up, inappropriate footwear, poor running technique and even a wallet in your back pocket.

No Regrets Personal Training Owner/Operator, Nick Jack, said back pain can have a major impact on a person’s livelihood and that the kit focusses on functional movements, rather than extreme measures such as medication and surgery, to overcome help manage and overcome this complex yet extremely common problem.

“It can result in significant discomfort with the simplest tasks such as a sitting for long periods of time, running and picking up items off the ground becoming unbearable. Research also shows that those with back pain are more likely to report poor health, very high levels of psychological distress, severe pain and core activity limitation, such as self-care and mobility, than those without the condition. This can have a profound effect on quality of everyday life, for not only the patient but their loved ones.”

“There is a misconception in the wider community that invasive surgery and medical drugs are normal solutions for dealing with chronic pain, and this couldn’t be more true for back pain. Recent AIHW disease expenditure data shows a staggering $1.2 billion was attributed to back problems in 2008-2009. We have been taught in today’s modern world to treat symptoms. What we must recognise is that in most cases this condition is the result of poor posture, overuse and repetitive movements.  This Back Pain Secrets Tool Kit aims to show people the power of a proper rehabilitation program,” Mr. Jack said.

“As a CHEK (Corrective Holistic Exercise Kinesiology) Practitioner and Personal Trainer for over 10 years, I have seen numerous clients who were in immense pain and struggling to participate in day to day life who have gone on to live pain free by simply addressing the root cause of their problem. We must become more educated about how to apply good principles of health using a proven formula of strength training, nutrition, and lifestyle habits to prevent injury and overcome chronic pain,” explains Mr. Jack.

Inspired by the inspirational results from back pain clients at No Regrets Personal Training and those who have followed the step-by-step instructions in this resource, the Back Pain Secrets Tool Kit is a comprehensive program to help people from all around the world to get on top of their pain in the comfort of their own home. Available for immediate download, the kit features a comprehensive 80 minute video, a 80 page eBook with detailed instructions, pictures, a recovery program and nutrition information.

The recovery program looks into the fundamentals of a well-structured rehabilitation program including establishing what repetitive movements may be causing the condition, assessing posture and flexibility imbalances, proper stretching, isolated strength and integrated strength training.

Plant Now to Make Your Lawn a Perfect Pearl

Written by admin on Apr 27th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Save water and energy while reducing atmospheric carbon with safe, sustainable, low maintenance turf

Wouldn’t anyone crave a lush, verdant lawn that uses 75% less water, stays green without toxic chemicals and takes  75% less mowing or only once a month mowing, compared to other lawns? Pearl’s Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed has unlocked the secret to growing “greener” and greener grass, when they announce their improved 4thgeneration, all natural grass Earth Day Weekend.

“It can be easy,” says Jackson Madnick, an award-winning environmental, grass, water and conservation expert…”You do not tear up the lawn, just spread the seed over your existing lawn to outcompete it.”

Pearl’s Premium founder Madnick developed a patented mix of native and adaptive grass seeds that grows slowly, forming dense turf with much deeper root systems than other grasses. Foot-deep roots enable Pearl’s Premium grasses to better tap into soil moisture and nutrients and resist insects, disease and salt. Deep roots and thick grasses outcompete weeds and pull more atmospheric carbon into the soil, called sequestration of carbon, doing their modest part to help reduce climate change.

Slow growth means far less mowing, saving dramatic amounts of time, money, effort and water. By eliminating the need for chemical fertilizers and pesticides, Madnick’s grass seed enables users to grow lawns that are safe for children and pets.

Among 400,000 homes and businesses with this grass, Habit for Humanity, New York City’s Park Avenue greenway and the Bing Crosby Estate have something in common and are among the recent adopters who rave about this grass.

Pearl’s Premium as part of their giving back program, donates a ton of their beautiful dark green grass seed for use in lawns for 200 Habitat For Humanity homes in 2016 to benefit Wounded Warriors and others and their families all across the country, like in this Geneva, New York project to save water and time.


A non profit, The Fund for Park Avenue is a conservancy and beautification program that planted Pearl’s Premium in 33 blocks of the Park Avenue malls between 54th and 86th streets to establish a thriving green median without irrigation, to bring big green to the Big Apple (seen below).


And the Bing Crosby Estate (seen below) in drought-ridden California, just south of San Francisco used the Pearl’s Premium seed for an acre of green lawn that now requires no community water what so ever, thanks to slow growth, deep roots and a little ground water recovery.                        


In addition to flourishing in these recent lawns, Pearl’s grass is succeeding in all 50 United States, Canada, Europe & Middle East. Pearl’s Premium received rave reviews in Popular Science and Newsweek magazines, by master gardener’s writing for ABC, CBS and NBC TV and from home-improvement expert, Bob Vila who uses it in his home lawn.

For a safe, luxuriant, time, money, water and energy-saving lawn, purchase Pearl’s Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Lawn Seed at Whole Foods Markets and Costco stores in New England, quality garden centers throughout the U.S. or at www.PearlsPremium.com.

For more information about Pearl’s Premium, contact Jackson Madnick at (508) 653-0800.

(continued)

Further info About Pearl’s Premium Ultra Low Maintenance Grass Seed:

Founder Jackson Madnick, inspired by his mother and daughter (both named Pearl) and their commitment to the environment, developed a special blend of grass seed that grows a lush, deep rooted lawn with 75% less water and 75% less mowing. Pearl’s Premium lawns require no chemicals, making them healthier for children and animals. Grown in all 50 states, Canada and Europe, these lawns sequester four times as much carbon as other grasses, helping to reduce climate change.

Due to the deep roots, Pearl’s also outcompetes most weeds without chemicals, as seen in the lawn below on the right. The lawn on the left is ordinary grass, chuck full of weeds in flower:

Pearl’s Premium was named one of three most important patented inventions by the Boston Museum of Science (although grows in all 50 states), won the International MassChallenge prize for innovation out of 446 entries from 26 countries and is the only grass to be awarded LEED credits from the U.S. Green Building Council. It was featured as the only lawn grass in the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon, held in Irvine, California, out of 18 houses of the future on display.

IRELAND’S EASTER RISING IS REMEMBERED IN AMERICA

Written by admin on Apr 27th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

IRELAND’S EASTER RISING IS REMEMBERED IN AMERICA

By Sean O’Loughlin, Esq.

     This week marks the centennial anniversary of Ireland’s Easter Rising when rebel forces led by Patrick Pearse and John Connolly attempted to seize strategic parts of Dublin in an attempt to rid Ireland of British rule. Although the rising was quashed by the British, the uprising is symbolic among the Irish as the beginning of events leading to a free Irish state. In America, just across the giant pond known as the Atlantic Ocean, almost 35 million Americans are of Irish ancestry. They came here to escape famine and poverty. They were greeted with unwelcoming signs and banners in businesses saying “Irish Need Not Apply.” Yet today, the Irish Americans occupy positions of authority and leadership in all walks of American society. The Irish contribution to America will never be forgotten and the Irish Americans will never forget their Irish heritage.

      My grandfather, Thomas O’Loughlin, came from Ireland in the early 1920’s. He was an un-ordained Jesuit Seminarian, sent to America to teach the American priests the Latin language. He ultimately became a teacher at Erasmus Hall high school in Brooklyn. He was a member of Erasmus Hall’s Classical Department and he taught the classics. Like many Irish, he was a gifted writer who also wrote plays. When asked about his education, he was known to tell people that he went to barber’s college. 

     My grandfather’s first cousin John Joseph Foote made national headlines as a war hero during World War II. John Joseph Foote was commander of the submarine the Threadfin. During World War II while on patrol in the pacific, the Threadfin spotted the Japanese battleship the Yamato. After reporting their find, the Yamato was subsequently transformed into scrap metal and Commander Foote, age 31, returned home to Brooklyn as a war hero.  

     My grandmother, Virginia O’Loughlin, who was born in America of Irish heritage, was an English teacher at Lafayette high school in Brooklyn. Her most famous student was a left handed baseball pitcher who the Brooklyn Dodgers, not only recruited, but they optioned future hall of fame manager Tommy Lasorda to make room for Brooklyn’s most famous athlete Sandy Koufax. Sandy was not Irish but my grandmother was always proud of all of her students.

      Ireland was a place described to me by my father as nothing less than magical. About seven years ago, I went to Ireland for the first time. I wish my father was still alive, so that I can tell him that his description of Ireland was perfect. The hospitality and friendliness of the Irish is unmatched. Everywhere I went, I was always greeted with smiles. People from all walks of life in Ireland would take the time from their day to talk to me. When I returned to America, I applied and received dual citizenship with Ireland right away. Since then, I have returned to Ireland several times and I am always told by the Irish that the American’s know their history. Thank God Ireland is a free country and thank you to all the brave men and women who resisted and fought oppression during the foreign occupation of Ireland.


TARGET DRONE MODIFIED FOR INTELLIGENCE USE

Written by admin on Apr 27th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

MADISON, AL, USA – APRIL 27, 2016

For U.S. Army forces at Fort Irwin, California, Griffon Aerospace created a “surrogate, threat intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR)” fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) using its Outlaw G2 single-engine target drone as the foundation.  The new version, complete with stabilized camera system and satellite communications (SATCOM,) is called “Outlaw G2E.”  It took just 10 months to take the aircraft from concept to implementation.

Fort Irwin provides force-on-force and live-fire training for the Army, Air Force, and the Marines.  Outlaw G2E is tasked with providing simulated enemy forces with near peer-to-peer ISR capabilities. 

Colonel Kevin Jacoby, U.S. Army, said, “OUTLAW G2E UAS has been instrumental…in replicating the latest threat seen in the Operational Environment.”[i]

In training exercises the aircraft is used to determine friendly force distribution and to provide coordinates of high-value targets.  It also provides valuable information for After Action Review (AAR) purposes.

Rod Sheetz, a key member of NTC’s Operations Group, said “OUTLAW provides a great product…keep it coming!”[ii]

The conversion and use of the Outlaw G2E was done at a fraction of the cost of existing, tactical class UAS platforms.  In addition, progressive operations can be done such as flying 2 aircraft simultaneously with one loitering as a communications “relay tower” while the other completes an ISR mission.

Larry French, CEO/CTO of Griffon Aerospace said, “I’m very proud of the services, products and people who are launching us into a totally new competitive arena.”

Griffon will display the Outlaw family of aircraft this year at the Xponential/AUVSI trade show in New Orleans, 3-5 May.

Sukh Dhaliwal Liberal MP’s Auditor Gurminder Parihar CGA, Mum on Disclosures.

Written by admin on Apr 27th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Vancouver BC.  Jeeni Sandhu  Sukh Dhaliwal Member Parliament from Surrey Newton defeated sitting NDP MP , Jinny Simms and hand picked by Jason Kenney, Conservative Candidate Harpreet Singh, in Federal Elections in 2015.
Recently it was reported in Vancouver Sun, The Province and Indo-Canadian Voice, how $ 6.4 Million dollars were transferred by Liberals and 4 other Big Parties, to their Candidates and Local Associations, by submitting over 6,000 Transfer files, by about 1,500 candidates, before March 31, 2016. However 200 Candidates have yet to File their Election expenses and returns by April 30, 2016.
Sukh Dhaliwal’s Assistant Campaign Manager for Surrey Newton, termed the disclosures as “Misleading”, where as his Auditor has refused to comment on the issue of transfer of $ 213,638 by Liberal Party to Sukh Dhaliwal’s, Surrey Newton Association. Transfer data also shows how complicated it can be to follow the money in the world of Election spending, which moves very quickly, between donors, Candidates, local Associations and Central Parties.
Surrey Newton resident Rajbir Mangat, suggested “Auditors of Sukh Dhaliwal, MP, Jinny Simms former NDP MP, and Conservative Candidate Harpreet Singh, should come clean on Election Finance and make it public to us”. ” They should not keep Mum on this “Misleading Finance”, quote by Al Payne.
