Elizabeth Ricci of Rambana and Ricci, P.L.L.C., a Tallahassee-based law firm concentrating on complex immigration issues, has been appointed as a local board member for the U.S. Selective Service System.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (PRWEB) September 25, 2018
Immigration attorney Elizabeth Ricci of Rambana & Ricci, P.L.L.C., a Tallahassee-based law firm concentrating on complex immigration issues, has been appointed as a local board member for the U.S. Selective Service System. If a military draft becomes necessary, Ricci and her fellow board members will decide who among registrants in their community will receive deferments, postponements or exemption from military service based on the individual registrant's circumstances and beliefs. Local board appointments are for 20 years, and Ricci is one of five board members whose jurisdiction covers Leon and Wakulla counties.
“I am honored to be serving as a local board member for the Selective Service System, which plays a critical role in our nation’s defense. As a board member, I’m committed to ensuring those who are chosen to serve in our military are selected in a fair and equal manner,” said Ricci.
The Selective Service System is a federal agency that maintains a database of those potentially subject to a military draft in case of a national emergency. Virtually all men ages 18 through 25 must register for the Selective Service.
There are approximately 2,000 Selective Service local boards and more than 11,000 board members throughout the U.S. and its territories. During peacetime, board members participate in annual training during which they review sample cases similar to real-life situations.
Ricci, who has worked in the area of immigration law since 1989, is well-known for her pro bono work helping foreign-born U.S. military veterans gain U.S. citizenship. She also has represented a number of foreign-born military enlistees who were left in limbo following the U.S. government’s suspension of the Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVN) program. Before it was suspended, the MAVNI program provided expedited U.S. citizenship to immigrants with valuable medical, engineering or foreign language skills. Reported by PRWeb 9 hours ago.
PXG Founder and Philanthropist Bob Parsons Supports Veteran Led Disaster Relief Organization
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) September 25, 2018
As the east coast readied itself for Hurricane Florence, PXG was slated to celebrate the grand opening of its first standalone retail and fitting studio, PXG Chicago. The imminent damage to the Carolinas and Virginia was cause for both pause and action.
During his welcome address at PXG Chicago on September 13, 2018, company founder and CEO Bob Parsons asked the room to take a moment to think about those impacted by the winds and water of Hurricane Florence. He then announced a $250,000 gift to Team Rubicon as seed money, which helped to rapidly deploy emergency response teams during the worst part of the storm.
“Team Rubicon quickly coordinates and deploys highly trained military veterans as volunteers for disaster relief efforts,” Bob Parsons stated. “We supported Team Rubicon’s tremendous work during hurricanes Harvey and Irma, and we took immediate action to support them during Florence as well.”
Providing relief to those affected by natural disasters is Team Rubicon’s mission. By pairing the skills and experiences of military veterans with first responders, medical professionals, and technology solutions, the organization mobilizes highly trained teams to provide the greatest impact possible.
"Team Rubicon's ability to serve those impacted by Hurricane Florence would not be possible without the generosity of supporters like PXG," said Jake Wood, cofounder and CEO of Team Rubicon. "Our volunteers are built to serve, and PXG's investment in our mission enables veterans and first responders to help communities when they need us most."

PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comcast’s Internet Essentials partners with the Elizabeth Dole Foundation and PsychArmor to help more low-income veterans cross the digital divide
Reported by Business Wire 9 hours ago.
Watch VideoIn 2007, Lonnie Kessler had surgery to remove a tumor the size of a softball from his brain. He still lives with the remnants of that tumor, and the associated side effects.
Lonnie told Newsy those effects included: "Severe nausea, vomiting, weight loss. ... Right now the imminent threat to my life is intractable epilepsy. My epilepsy stopped responding to traditional medications and treatments."
"I started advocating for medical marijuana when I heard of New Approach Missouri. ... We've collected 135,000 signatures by volunteers alone, and it's just amazing how people will take time off work, or use a sick day, or miss out on a night out on the town to go collect signatures."
"Patients are, we're not weak. We're vulnerable without marijuana as medicine. We're a strong bunch of people, we have to be strong to live with the things we live with every day."
Over the past decade, 31 states plus the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for medical use. And come this November, voters in Lonnie's home state of Missouri will have an opportunity to join their ranks. Well, three opportunities, actually.
All three proposals follow the same basic structure — allow patients with certain conditions to access medical marijuana, levy a sales tax on that marijuana, and use the money to fund specific state programs. Lonnie and New Approach are supporting Amendment 2, which imposes a 4 percent sales tax on medical marijuana and sends all the proceeds to veterans' care.
There's also Proposition C, a statutory amendment that sets its sales tax at 2 percent and splits the proceeds four ways: drug treatment, veteran care, public safety and early childhood education.
And finally, there's Amendment 3, led by physician/attorney Dr. Brad Bradshaw. That bill imposes the highest sales tax of the three measures at 15 percent, which would fund a brand-new research institute devoted to finding cures for cancer and other intractable diseases. The institute would be headed, at least at first, by Bradshaw himself.
There's no love lost between the three campaigns: while polls have shown broad support for medical marijuana in Missouri, the presence of three separate initiatives could end up confusing voters and dividing that support.
But ultimately, as long as at least one measure gets over 50 percent support, the outcome will be the same: legal medical marijuana in Missouri.
Mike Colona used to be a state senator in Missouri. He's now helping lead the fight for Proposition C to win out in November, along with St. Louis lobbyist Mark Habbas.
Colona told Newsy, "I know Dr. Bradshaw, I know those folks at New Approach. I know they're in this for the right reasons. I know they want to help people. We just have different ways of getting there."
"We need to take the bull by the horns. We need to make sure this gets done the right way. ... We can't rely on other folks to do the good work we need to make sure gets done."
*SEE MORE: How A Mom's Pot Use May Affect Their Child's Own Use*
Proposition C is unique because it's a statutory amendment, not a constitutional one. That means state legislators can tweak and modify the proposal without having to create a whole new ballot initiative.
Habbas argues this flexibility is a key feature of the proposal.
He said, "There's no perfect bill, there's no perfect law, there's no perfect contract. We know that these things are going to have to be revised and modified."
But Lonnie isn't so sure that approach will work out in patients' favor.
"If we pass this, that our legislators can come in and they can gut that right away. They can change the language, they can change the rules, who gets it. ... Our legislators don't always listen to us. They don't always know our needs, they don't understand," Lonnie said.
New Approach's method is also unique in that it would allow patients to grow their own cannabis, something Lonnie says can be extremely helpful for patient care.
"The home grow option is something that can benefit patients who live in rural areas or patients who are too sick to get out and go purchase medicine at the dispensaries. ... I personally believe it provides a therapeutic value too. It's just kinda like gardening, you know, you reap what you sow."
The third option on Missouri's ballot, Amendment 3, was largely self-funded by Bradshaw. He sees the medical marijuana movement as an opportunity to help kickstart other important medical research.
Bradshaw told Newsy, "There are people who need access to medical marijuana, and we also need more research in a concentrated, collaborative effort. ... We don't have a Manhattan-project-type cancer research program, and Missouri's perfectly geo-centrally located for something like that."
Bradshaw's filed lawsuits to keep his two rivals off the ballot. But so far, it looks like Missouri's voters will be making the final call on which medical marijuana scheme gets to pass. Reported by Newsy 9 hours ago.

SINGAPORE, Sep 26, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Mind Fund, a Hong Kong based VC company that incubates and invests in the next global wave of technology companies, is pleased to announce the launch of the new Helix Accelerator (https://www.helixaccelerator.com/) in partnership with Hedera.
The Helix Accelerator, based in Hong Kong, is the first global accelerator to incubate projects building distributed applications exclusively on the Hedera hashgraph platform. The first batch will be recruited from the Hedera hackathons held in October across nine different cities on four continents.
"The hashgraph consensus protocol represents a new paradigm in distributed computing at scale, and the potential opportunities for distributed applications are immense," said Adam Lindemann, partner at Mind Fund. In order to help realize this potential, Helix is a systematic program which will provide funding and mentorship from technology and business veterans. The program runs ten weeks, and is based in Hong Kong, one of the most vibrant cities in Asia. All projects are expected to spend the full term in Hong Kong, where living accommodations will be provided. Helix has a beautiful 6,000 square foot office space in the trendy Wong Chuk Hang district, and each project will receive US$100,000 upon graduation.
After the program, all teams will get access to Global Incubation Stream, a networking initiative by Mind Fund and its Tokyo and San Francisco based partner, Digital Garage, which supports graduates from their respective accelerator programs around the world.
"We believe Hedera has the best chance of succeeding in building the enterprise grade public network that will be used by startups and enterprises for years to come. The quality of the team and the technology is unrivaled in this space and we want to help Hedera succeed by fostering the ecosystem with an accelerator. We think now is the perfect time for accelerators in the crypto space because the days of raising an ICO pre-product are over. It is advantageous for startups to at least have a working proof of concept before they raise institutional rounds and we believe Helix can help with this," said Mark Cheng, Mind Fund partner and Helix CEO.
"The Mind Fund team has a proven track record of selecting, incubating and scaling successful startups," said Edgar Seah, head of Asia Pacific for Hedera. "We are delighted that they have selected Hedera's fast, fair, and secure platform as the basis for Helix, and look forward to working with them and the companies that go through the program to build the next generation of distributed applications."
Mind Fund also participated in Hedera's recent $100M institutional round of funding.

'Northern Lights' was shot at Manchester's Twisted Wheel...
*Soft Cell* grew out of a shared love of club culture, bringing underground viewpoints together in a pop context.
Marc Almond and Dave Ball have developed into one of British music's most potent pop partnerships, a sordid, deviant voice that pushed the synth pop template to breaking point.
Set to play their final shows this year, Soft Cell have returned with new song 'Northern Lights', taken from new collection 'The Singles - Keychains & Snowstorms'.
The band's first new song in 15 years, the shuffling rhythm is directly inspired by the Northern Soul all-nighters that first captured their imagination.
"I grew up in Southport and Dave’s from Blackpool," Marc explains. "When we met and started making music together he would play me lots of those big Northern Soul singles for inspiration."
"We ended up working on a cover version of the Gloria Jones / Ruth Swann ‘Tainted Love’ which became massive for us of course, and later on we had hits with our own versions of Judy Street’s ‘What’ and Franki Valli’s ‘The Night’."
The new single returns to this, placing those Northern stompers in an electronic context. The visuals are a treat, too - shot at Manchester's Twisted Wheel club, it takes Soft Cell right to the heart of the strange phenomenon known as Northern Soul.
Marc continues: "For the new track ‘Northern Lights’ we wanted to pay tribute to the North and its soul scene which is still going strong today. We shot the video in the legendary Twisted Wheel in Manchester with an audience made up of Northern Soul veterans from the ‘60s and ‘70s. The club still has its original logo! Some of the dancers in the video had been going regularly to soul clubs and dancing for almost 50 years. They were really quite inspiring!"
Tune in now.
Soft Cell dropped past Later... with Jools Holland last night (September 25th) - check out their performance of 'Northern Lights' below.

SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) September 26, 2018
Parsable, today announced that it has named Michael Chou as its new Chief Product Officer. Chou was previously VP of Product at messaging app Symphony Communications, and was VP of Product Management in Salesforce’s Service Cloud business unit.

With Michael’s guidance, we plan to continue to evolve and scale our Connected Worker Platform to serve an even wider set of industry leaders by helping them make their workers safer and more efficient.”

This sets a high bar for usability and product fit and finish — marks that Parsable, in my view, excels at. I am excited to work with and grow a team that will expand the breadth of Parsable’s success in orchestrating complex work processes and making them simple, intuitive, and completely reliable.”
