    Meals that Matter Mobile Relief Operations Sent with Cooking Teams

    SPRINGDALE, Ark., Sept. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- In response to flooding in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence, Tyson Foods will send teams to prepare meals for those affected by and responding to the disaster.  A cook site will be set up in Fayetteville, North Carolina, at the Walmart store at 7701 S. Raeford Rd. Free, hot meals will be provided onsite beginning Thursday morning at 11 a.m. for anyone who is in need. In addition, a distribution network will be established with local authorities and disaster relief organizations to deliver meals to flood victims in the Fayetteville area.

    Teams from Tyson Foods’ operations in Clarksville and Texarkana, Arkansas; Claryville, Kentucky; New Holland, Pennsylvania; Shelbyville, Tennessee and Glen Allen, Virginia, will arrive onsite Wednesday and begin preparations to serve meals Thursday.

    The company’s Meals that Matter mobile disaster relief truck will be sent from its home in Springdale, Arkansas, and is also expected to arrive onsite Wednesday. The company is sending three tractor-trailer loads of product totaling 100,000 pounds, one tractor-trailer load of bagged ice and one tractor-trailer load of bottled water.

    “With more than 6,000 team members throughout the state of North Carolina the damage left by Hurricane Florence hits close to home,” said Debra Vernon, senior director, corporate social responsibility. “This deployment wouldn’t be possible without the support of our team members, disaster relief partners and customers who are all volunteering time and resources to make sure our response is as successful as possible.”

    Tyson Foods will be working closely with its disaster relief partners American Egg Board, Bimbo Bakeries USA, Harris Baking Co., Hugg & Hall Equipment Co., Peppersource and Salvation Army to maximize relief efforts.

    Team Rubicon, another disaster relief partner comprised of military veterans, has deployed two mobile command centers to North Carolina. The command centers were donated by Tyson Foods in 2014 and 2017 and include sleeping quarters, as well as office and storage space for Team Rubicon’s staff and volunteers.

    For continuing updates on Tyson Foods’ disaster relief efforts, please follow the company on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

    Sumeet Vyas, who is going to slip into the character of Ram Jethmalani in a new show titled The Verdict - State Vs Nanavati recently opened up about his preparation for his role, which is based on the 1959 Nanavati Case. Angad Bedi who plays barrister Karl Khandalavala in the web series has found his on-screen rival in Sumeet Vyas. 

    Sumeet Vyas, who has already undergone several look tests for the role said "Since it's a period show, we avoided making the actors look caricaturish. We used a few photos of Ram Jethmalani to draw inspiration for the costumes."

    Sumeet Vyas had to depend on material online as he has never met Ram Jethmalani, He added "He was in his 40s when he was fighting this case. There are no videos of him from the time. So, we decided to interpret the man rather than imitate him. I noticed how he looks now and tried to analyze how he would have been decades ago."

    Talking in depth about the character Sumeet said "For the actor, the complexities of each character was an interesting aspect to analyze. You can't have an opinion of Jethmalani that is wholly complete. You can't term him unfair, or even entirely fair either. So, it's fascinating to play that."

    Despite six decades, the story of the trial which revolved around infidelity, cold-blooded murder and patriotism still grabs people's attention. This 10-episode courtroom drama will be based on public records, newspaper articles of the time, interviews with people who have knowledge of the case.

    While the result of the trial is now a known fact, it is the unfolding of the case that remains a matter of interest to the nation. ALTBalaji's The Verdict will have a whole host of theatre veterans playing pivotal roles. Stay tuned to this space for more information on that...

    AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 19, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CherryCircle Software, Inc., a software company developing novel solutions for the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, announced the Americana release of its QbDVision process and knowledge management software. “For too long, the pharmaceutical industry has lacked an integrated knowledge management solution for its process development activities,” said Yash Sabharwal, President & CEO. “The use of multiple, poorly integrated software tools for knowledge management has hampered risk-based process development and compromised data integrity.”QbDVision is a unique, cloud-based software solution developed by industry veterans for managing the evolution of process development from IND-enabling studies to NDA submission. Specifically tailored to the pharmaceutical industry, this software solution enables the Pharma 4.0 framework by integrating requirements management, data management, process design and development, and risk management within a single, 21 CFR Part 11 compliant environment. “As manufacturing processes become increasingly complex, novel visualization tools beyond two-dimensional tables are required to easily interpret data in multiple dimensions. Our software is unique in its ability to provide the user with these visualization tools,” added Dr. Sabharwal. Separate spreadsheet, document preparation, and project management products to manage this process development over the long product life cycle of drug products is no longer possible. QbDVision provides the infrastructure and tools to enable true process understanding and control of complex manufacturing processes which are essential to meet regulatory requirements and ensure the highest quality.

    CherryCircle Software has built QbDVision on the Amazon Web Services platform using a serverless architecture designed for rapid development, enhanced security, and minimal IT burden for client companies. Furthermore, the extensive use of automated testing tools allows for robust testing and validation of the software solution further minimizing the resources required by the client to maintain the validated state.

    *About CherryCircle Software, Inc.*

    CherryCircle Software, Inc. and the QbDVision project were started by two serial entrepreneurs and pharmaceutical manufacturing and quality experts. Our mission is to build cloud-based software solutions using the latest technologies for the simple application of quality-by-design principles to the development of therapeutics and medical devices. This approach reduces both development time and the risk of encountering a systemic failure later in the development life cycle.

    Homecoming for Honor Flight veterans caps off anniversary of first flight

    MIAMI (PRWEB) September 19, 2018

    On September 13, officials from Miami International Airport and HistoryMiami Museum, as well as airport and airline employees past and present, gathered at MIA to kick off celebrations for MIA’s 90th birthday. The festivities began with the unveiling of Miami International Airport: A Hub for History, an exhibition highlighting important milestones from the airport’s past nine decades. Developed in partnership with HistoryMiami Museum, the exhibit includes photographs, artifacts, uniforms and archival video from the Lynn and Louis Wolfson II Florida Moving Image Archives, featuring celebrity MIA arrivals and other notable events since the airport’s first flight on September 15, 1928 to now.

    "As it has for the past 90 years, Miami International Airport continues to play a significant role in the global aviation industry and in Miami-Dade County’s economy," said Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez. “Congratulations to the dedicated men and women who make MIA what it is today, and to HistoryMiami for producing this tribute to MIA’s history.”

    MIA’s 90th anniversary – which happened to fall on a Saturday, just like that first flight in 1928 – coincided with the airport’s latest Honor Flight, hosted in collaboration with Honor Flight South Florida (HFSF) and Allegiant Air. More than 70 local World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans departed MIA Saturday morning for a day trip to visit the war memorials in Washington, D.C. that were created in their honor. When the veterans – four of whom were also born in 1928 – arrived back at MIA that evening, they were welcomed home by an energetic receiving line full of friends, family, community groups, military representatives and local officials.

    “Miami-Dade County has been fortunate to have the unparalleled gateway of the Americas in our community for 90 years and counting,” said Miami-Dade County Commissioner Rebeca Sosa, Chairwoman of the County’s Economic Development and Tourism Committee. "I wish our community's largest economic engine many more years of success."

    To continue the celebration, MIA has also launched the #MIAmemories photo contest. Whether it’s a first arrival to the U.S., the start of a favorite vacation, or a long-awaited reunion with loved ones, travelers are invited to post photos of their most memorable moments at MIA on social media using the hashtag, with the chance to be randomly chosen to win two American Airlines tickets to any destination in the continental U.S.

    “MIA has come a long way from one small terminal building, two hangars and two runways in 1928,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Lester Sola. “As we continue to expand our route network into untapped markets around the world and enhance our customer service delivery, I am convinced that some of our best years are still to come.” Reported by PRWeb 8 hours ago.
