SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rhumbix, a powerful mobile platform designed for smarter construction sites, has announced a system update that will now allow field data to be collected from both iOS and Android devices and shared seamlessly between both mobile and the web application.Rhumbix, which recently closed an $8M funding round led by industry leader Autodesk, Inc., initially built its Field Intelligence Platform™ on the iOS mobile operating system. With the inclusion of the Android platform, now available in the Google Play Store, any mobile device now provides the same intuitive user operation while maintaining real-time data delivery to project stakeholders. The result is a “one size fits all” digital solution for general contractors, subcontractors, and owners by offering one tool to collect any field-level data from timekeeping to fieldwork orders and more.
“Our goal with any update is to better serve our users,” said Rhumbix CEO Zach Scheel. “With this Android offering we’re actually serving a new segment of users which, according to our research, makes up roughly half of the job site workforce. And by funneling all data through a universal platform, with the ability to share between all devices, we’re now fully inclusive from end-to-end.”
In a frequently sourced report by McKinsey Global Institute, the construction industry was listed as the 21^st least digitized industry of the 22 analyzed. Much of this is due to the fragmented nature of projects which leads to less productivity. According to McKinsey, the result is a $1.6 Trillion cost to the global economy. But this is changing quickly as more investors recognize the potential for growth and new digital tools are developed and integrated. Rhumbix focuses on bringing its tools to the job site to help eliminate the gap between the office and field.
“We take a workers first approach to everything we do at Rhumbix,” said Scheel. “When we first started there was a learning curve for early adapters who embraced field technology. But that allowed us to address their issues to better grow and fine-tune our service. We’re confident Android users will have a seamless transition as they move away from paper to see the results of digitization on the bottom line.”
Rhumbix modernizes construction field operations, helping builders go paperless in the field and improving how they track, measure and manage labor productivity to be more profitable. The Rhumbix mobile app digitizes and standardizes field data related to time and attendance, production tracking and benchmarking, daily reporting, and field work orders. This ensures all project stakeholders have the best data, when they need it, to make better decisions and draw actionable insights. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, Rhumbix was founded in 2014 by Navy veterans with deep experience in the construction industry and is backed by numerous tier-one investors.

Founded and developed by Vikram Khullar, Reaz Islam, and Kevin Breen, a highly experienced team of investment, analytics, and technology development leaders, Zsenia’s purpose is to offer everyone investment, research, and analytics data at an affordable price. It eliminates the need for multiple tools and data sources to help validate key information and separate it from all the noise and bombardment of data and news across various channels into one seamless application for investors.
The founders have over 100 years of combined investment experience over multiple business cycles (boom & busts), and want others to benefit from their experience and give them access to the tools they used to navigate through markets, both up and down. The founders, reflecting on their first-hand experience including Portfolio Management, Research, Risk Management and the need for Financial Advisors, selected the most relevant tools from their respective areas of expertise, to cut through all the information overload, into a unique product - Zsenia.

The platform can help anyone interested in investing in the liquid markets across three dimensions, such as Security Selection, Asset Allocation and Market Timing. Whether the user is researching a stock or ETF to add to their portfolio (security selection), unsure about asset allocation, or just worried about the market and want to change your positions (market timing), we’ve got them covered.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. (PRWEB) September 11, 2018
For the eighth consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report ranks The Citadel as the #1 public college in the South offering up to a master’s degree. The Citadel ranks #3 Best College in the South, when private and public schools are combined, up from #4 last year.
The Citadel moved up to #1 for Best College for Veterans in the South, from the #2 position last fall. Additionally, The Citadel is in the top ten for Most Innovative Schools in the South for the first time. At #9, The Citadel leads South Carolina institutions along with the College of Charleston, which tied for the spot. According to U.S. News & World Report, the innovative schools rankings come from input from the colleges and nominations from peers ”for those making the most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology or facilities.”
Another first for The Citadel is being ranked in the top 10 for Best Undergraduate Teaching, at #8. The college ranks #3 Best Undergraduate Teaching in the South.
“We do not take the U.S. News & World Report ranking of best public college in the South for granted. It affirms the effectiveness of dedicated faculty, staff, alumni and donors who are committed to our mission to educate and develop principled leaders,” said Lt. Gen. John B. Sams Jr., USAF (Ret.), interim president of The Citadel. “A Citadel education is based on the values of honor, duty and respect which clearly resonate with many families across America.”
The 2019 Best Colleges rankings were released Sept. 10 by the news outlet that was one of the first American publishers to produce a college rankings list based on a complex formula of publically reported data to help prospective students select colleges.

The Citadel is also at the top of its peer group when it comes to alumni giving, according to U.S. News & World Report, which ranks The Citadel at 25 percent, followed by Elon University at 22 percent, with the average giving level at 7.37 percent, according to the chart.
“Alumni giving demonstrates the passionate commitment our graduates have for their alma mater,” said Jay Dowd, Ph.D., chief executive officer of The Citadel Foundation. “Our current 25 percent alumni participation rate represents a strong vote of confidence in the college’s strategic vision and the experience we provide for future leaders.”
The Citadel’s average alumni starting salary is listed at $58,000, the second highest in the state after the Medical University of South Carolina, which is listed at $58,400. Starting salaries for specific majors are noted as follows:

According to U.S. News & World Report, it ranks only regionally accredited institutions with four-year undergraduate-degree-seeking students.

A detailed breakdown of the methodology can be found on the Best Colleges 2019 Methodology webpage.

Anaxi brings easy tracking to the 25 million active GitHub repositories
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- More than 1.5 million organizations have 25 million active repositories (an average of 17 per organization) on GitHub, the world's largest community for developers to share, and build better software -- with no good way to keep track of everything. Anaxi, a startup co-founded by serial entrepreneurs and veterans of Apple and Docker, today launched an app that gives engineers and managers visibility on their software development projects and processes.“It seems every other discipline within an enterprise can be tracked, scored and improved empirically except the software development process,” said Marc Verstaen, co-founder and CEO of Anaxi. “Now for the first time, engineers and managers can see where and how bottlenecks occur -- what is working and what isn’t -- leading to far more predictable development schedules and product launches.”
That is more important than ever before in today’s digital economy – with the Internet, e-commerce, Internet of Things and mobile phones – when technology is viewed as a competitive advantage with every company developing its own software.
“It was a huge challenge supporting the rapid growth of Docker's open-source community in terms of structuring and managing the GitHub project,” said Sam Alba, until recently the vice president of engineering, Docker. “Anaxi resolves this issue by providing a holistic view to help get better control of the software development process.”
Anaxi’s team conducted a Net Promoter Score (NPS) survey of 129 companies, assessing their satisfaction about the way priorities are handled in the engineering organization, and the results revealed very poor performance with scores of -25 for all companies, and -38 for enterprises. The main complaint was visibility. Backed by this data and its own experience, Anaxi’s team built a first version iPhone app, available free at the App Store, which has the following capabilities.
· *Issue Reports
*Anaxi allows users to build reports on top of their GitHub issues. Reports list issues with specific filters: a specific priority, milestone, label, status, or assignee. Users gather reports within folders, and in one glance have a view of different GitHub projects including how issues are distributed across the team and how many blockers the team has to solve before a milestone.
· *Pull Request Reports for changes pushed to GitHub
*Users have the ability to create reports that list pull requests with specific filters: labels, status, author, assignee or reviewer. This enables tracking of pull requests, for example, those created or to be reviewed by specific individuals or teams.
· *Visual Status Indicators
*Once an issue or pull request report has an alarming state, for instance, too many blockers for a project expected to be released in a few days, the report will be displayed in red. Its color will be replicated in its enclosing folder, if any. In this way, users can identify reports requiring their attention at a glance. Healthy status is indicated in green and caution in orange giving users an overall view of status at a glance.
· *Label Categories
*GitHub lets users define their labels in any way they want. Still, a best practice has emerged where projects will categorize their labels with /, such as “area/networking” in which “area” is the category for the “networking” label value. Anaxi reinforces this practice by differentiating label categories.
· *Data Confidentiality
*Anaxi founders understood the need for confidentiality about access to their GitHub issues, so the Anaxi app is designed to work without connecting to any Anaxi servers. It connects directly to the users’ GitHub repositories and builds the reports from the app itself. All data remains secure and inaccessible, even from Anaxi itself.
Anaxi will soon add report capabilities and integrate with other tools, such as Atlassian’s Jira, in addition to building apps for other platforms such as Android and web.
For more information go to www.anaxi.com/features.
Co-founded by Marc Verstaen (previously executive vice president of product development at Docker) and John Lafleur (previously CEO at CodinGame) in December 2017, Anaxi is the system of record for engineering organizations that need to facilitate decision processes. Anaxi will open a new data-driven era to engineering organizations, empowering them to better allocate their development time and resources.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (PRWEB) September 11, 2018
David Shulkin, M.D., former secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, is joining Sanford Health as chief innovation officer.
Shulkin will serve Sanford Health as its top administrator in the innovation space, leading initiatives to advance work in research, Imagenetics, the Sanford Chip, Profile and World Clinic. His experience will help drive the systems’ continued clinical development as well as serving as a strategic advisor on Sanford’s national growth strategy and overall public policy efforts.
Shulkin will be a director on the Sanford International Board and serve as an ambassador for Sanford Health on many of the system’s domestic and international projects. In addition to his strategic role for Sanford, he will continue to work with others in academia and the health care industry, providing strategic direction and advice on national healthcare issues.

Before serving as secretary of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Shulkin was leader of the largest integrated health care system in the United States as the VA’s undersecretary of Health. He served in chief executive roles for Beth Israel Medical Center and Morristown Medical Center and as chief medical officer for the University of Pennsylvania Health System, Temple University Hospital and the Medical College of Pennsylvania Hospital.
“After completing my work in the public sector, Sanford Health was an obvious choice to continue my health care career,” Shulkin said. “Sanford’s unique brand of innovation and clinical integration is bringing precision medicine to the bedside which is rapidly improving patient care in unprecedented ways. I look forward to joining the Sanford team and bringing my background and skills to help drive these advancements in medical practice.”
Shulkin received his medical degree from the Medical College of Pennsylvania and is a board-certified internist. He completed an internship at Yale University School of Medicine and a residency and fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh Presbyterian Medical Center.

Arreva has also recently hosted multiple webinars focused on nonprofit marketing to younger generations, including “Don’t Change Anything, But Change Everything: Fundraising in a New Generational Landscape,” "3 New Ways to Use Facebook to Reach New Donors,” and most recently, “Converting Armchair Activists to Real-Life Volunteers.”
Snapchat is a mobile app that allows its users to send photos and videos that disappear after a certain number of seconds. Users can also create “stories”: compilations of photos and videos that their followers can view. The app is an extremely popular social platform for Generation Z and Millennials and has been the host to many youth-centered ad campaigns. According to a 2018 Pew Research study, 78% of those aged 18-24 (Gen Z) use Snapchat, and 71% of those users go on the platform more than once per day. Learning to use the app presents nonprofits with an innovative approach to meeting potential volunteers and donors where they are.
Arreva’s digital marketing manager, Kelly Yaker, knew there was a strong need for a detailed guide specifically geared to nonprofit organizations on marketing through Snapchat. “We’re really excited about this new eBook because it’s something that was inspired from our interactions with webinar attendees a couple of months ago. We were discussing outreach to younger generations and when we mentioned Snapchat, our chat box lit up with people asking question after question about how to use Snapchat and even after the webinar ended, we received calls and emails from attendees asking for more information about Snapchat.” It was clear from the questions that arose during the webinars that although, most attendees had heard of the app, they weren’t exactly sure how it worked or what kind of content they should be publishing there.
Arreva’s “Nonprofit Guide to Snapchat” covers everything from setting up a Snapchat account for a nonprofit organization to using updated link and advertising features. It is specifically designed for nonprofit organizations and provides essential advice for nonprofits that have never used Snapchat before and has some great tips for Snapchat veterans. Even if an organization has been using Snapchat since its inception, this guide will help them adapt to the latest updates to the app and its capabilities as a marketing tool.
David Blyer, Arreva CEO and President, says “We’re deeply committed to helping nonprofits achieve their mission through software platforms specifically built for nonprofits from our experience across decades focused exclusively on the nonprofit industry. Our commitment to our customers’ success extends beyond our fully integrated, all-in-one online fundraising and donor relationship management ecosystem to include educational resources that help them thrive from the expertise we share and the trusted advice we provide.”

Credential Engine announced today a grant from the Northrop Grumman Foundation for Credential Engine’s growing work to publish credentials in support of the Department of Defense (DoD), our military service members, and our nation’s veterans.
WASHINGTON, D.C. (PRWEB) September 12, 2018
Credential Engine announced today a grant from the Northrop Grumman Foundation for Credential Engine’s growing work to publish credentials in support of the Department of Defense (DoD), our military service members, and our nation’s veterans. With this grant, Credential Engine will convene a Military Credentials Working Group to identify and facilitate partnerships within and across DoD and the military’s various branches, the Veterans Administration, veterans service organizations, employers and unions.
“The benefits of comprehensive credential transparency to the military and veterans are clear, and will improve efforts in recruitment, readiness, development, retention and transition,” said Credential Engine Executive Director, Scott Cheney. “Credential Engine has been working with the U.S. Department of Defense since 2016 to publish military-issued credentials to the Credential Registry, align and integrate our credential and competency schema with product lifecycle standards, and support the development of a Defense Department lead clearinghouse of federally-issued licenses and other credentials.”
This work builds, in part, upon existing efforts with the U.S. Navy under a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA), announced earlier this year. The project will commence in September of 2018 and is currently expected to run for two years.
Credential Engine is a non-profit whose mission is to create credential transparency, reveal the credential marketplace, increase credential literacy, and empower everyone to make more informed decisions about credentials and their value. Credential Engine is also supported by Lumina Foundation, JPMorgan Chase & Co., Walmart Giving, and Microsoft. Reported by PRWeb 17 hours ago.
