    'Pokémon Let's Go' is the first full Pokémon game on the Nintendo Switch — here's what you need to know to get started"Pokémon: Let's Go" is the newest Pokémon role-playing game, and the first entry of the main series to arrive on the Nintendo Switch.

    Launching this November, "Pokémon: Let's Go" presents a more interactive version of the Pokémon world, showing wild pokémon running around for the first time in a main-series game, and adding new ways for players to bond with their Pokémon partners.

    "Let's Go" takes clear cues from the mobile game "Pokémon Go" and appears to be more accessible for fans interested in the core Pokémon games. Veterans of the series may be disappointed by the limited number of Pokémon and some missing features, but "Pokémon: Let's Go" offers plenty of new gameplay improvements.

    -"Pokémon: Let's Go" takes place in the same region as 'Pokémon Red & Blue,' with the original 151 pokémon.-

    "Pokémon: Let's Go" returns to the Kanto region from the first games in the series, "Pokémon Red & Blue." This means that the original 151 pokémon will also be making a return, too, along with their Alolan variations from "Pokémon Sun & Moon." Players will explore updated 3D versions of the same cities, forests and destinations from "Red & Blue," and battle against the classic gym leaders like Brock and Misty. The notorious Team Rocket will play the role of villain once more.-There are key differences between "Let's Go Pikachu" and "Let's Go Eevee."-

    While the gameplay and story of both versions of "Pokémon: Let's Go" is the same, there are a few key differences. Most obviously, the version of the game you pick will determine your partner Pokémon: Pikachu or Eevee. Each version of the game will also have some exclusive wild Pokémon, and the version will determine how frequently some types of Pokémon appear.

    The confirmed exclusive Pokémon in "Let's Go: Pikachu" include Oddish, Sandshrew, and Growlithe. "Let's Go Eevee" has wild Bellsprout, Vulpix and Meowth. There are certainly more exclusive Pokémon to be found in both games. In order to catch all of the Pokémon in either game, you'll need to trade with someone who has the opposite version to obtain the other set of exclusive Pokémon.-Bonding with your partner Pokémon will unlock special abilities, and you can customize their appearance.-

    Forming a bond with your Eevee or Pikachu is a key part of the game: Players will be able to customize their partner's outfit, play with them and give them treats. Improving your friendship with your partner Pokémon will unlock special abilities that can be used both in and out of combat. Your partner will constantly follow you throughout the Pokémon world and will react when spoken to.

    Late Author Max Horlick’s book, “SNAFU: Unexpected Military Disasters in History” discusses military decisions that changed the course of history around the world

    WASHINGTON (PRWEB) October 15, 2018

    Inspired by the frustrations of past veterans and the author’s own admiration of famous military battles, the late author Max Horlick has shared insightful and colorful tales of battles, leaders and military decisions in his new book, “SNAFU”.

    The book describes in colorful detail on 10 unexpected but influential historical military disasters, dating from a famous battle between the Greeks and Persians in 480 BCE to the Battle of the Bulge during World War II.

    “I was personally involved in WWII, which was marked by constant challenges and constant mistakes,” Horlick said of his military experience. “Later, I read about all the other episodes that I covered in the book and became interested in situations where great preparedness by dominating forces succumbed to unpredictable elements. Many of which were notable and critical battles.”

    An Archway reviewer said about the book, “’SNAFU’ is eye-opening and informative. Max Horlick presents a refreshing, unfiltered view of famous battles from both US and world history. Each short chapter reads like an O’Henry tale… except that they are true! I learned fascinating historical facts while caught up in the battles. As a military veteran myself, I gleaned practical lessons learned, while enjoying a terrific read!”

    “SNAFU: Unexpected Military Disasters in History” is a book that historical military enthusiasts and veterans alike will find enjoy learning about how military mistakes of our past impacted the future.

    Through this support, American Portfolios has formally been recognized as the presenting partner for the May 3-5, World T.E.A.M. 2019 Face of America (FOA) Gettysburg cycling challenge.

    Holbrook, N.Y. (PRWEB) October 15, 2018

    HOLBROOK, N.Y. (Oct. 15, 2018)—American Portfolios Financial Services, Inc. (AP), a privately-held, independent broker/dealer that services financial advisors across the country, announced today that it is increasing its support for World T.E.A.M. (WT), a national non-profit organization that brings adaptive and able-bodied athletes together by empowering, enabling and engaging individuals through inclusive athletic events. Through this support, AP has formally been recognized as the presenting partner for the May 3-5, 2019 Face of America (FOA) Gettysburg cycling challenge.

    “I’ve always believed that corporations have a responsibility to give back to the community in meaningful ways whenever and wherever possible,” states AP CEO and WT Vice Chairman Lon T. Dolber. “The experiences AP has had through its association with WT have been transformative. Being able to share that with employees, affiliated colleagues and partners of the firm is extremely satisfying. Time and again, I’ve seen participants come away inspired and personally fulfilled when teammates work together, helping one another—both physically and mentally—to achieve what was never thought possible. AP proudly supports WT’s commitment to create life-changing experiences through these outdoor challenge events in this elevated sponsorship role.”

    “We are grateful for AP stepping up as the presenting partner this year,” said WT CEO and President Jon Brideau. “Team American Portfolios has continued to be our leading fundraising team for many years, traveling as a large group from their headquarters in Long Island, New York. We are excited to bring this event to the next level with their support and leadership of Lon Dolber."

    For 25 years, WT has remained true to its mission to “change lives through sports;” and over the last 11 years AP has actively contributed its time and resources each year to events that join able-bodied and adaptive men, women and children to accomplish inspiring and challenging feats of physical endurance. Beginning with the 2007 expedition to Kilimanjaro, AP has regularly provided financial and volunteer support of WT’s events, raising more than $1 million in charitable funds for the non-profit organization. Team American Portfolios consistently earns the distinction of being the top fundraiser for FOA Gettysburg and participates each and every year in WT events, including Adventure Team Challenge New York (ATC NY), which engages medically-fragile, developmentally-disabled teens and young adults from The Center for Discovery during a weekend of competitive team sporting events; the Coastal Team Challenge (CTC), a two-day, 16-nautical-mile, non-competitive kayak journey along the coast of Long Island, N.Y; and FOA Liberty, a one-day cycle event along the Hudson River to the West Point Military Academy, which—like FOA Gettysburg—honors military veterans who have been injured or disabled during their service.

    Each year, FOA Gettysburg brings together 600 participating athletes from the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada for an inclusive two-day, 110-mile cycling challenge from Arlington, Va. to historic Gettysburg, Penn. to honor adaptive veterans for their military service. The non-competitive ride includes both adaptive and able-bodied athletes – many of whom are returning FOA participants -- who pedal together, providing assistance and friendship along the way.

    Online registration for athletes and volunteers for the May 2019 FOA Gettysburg ride is now open. Funds raised will support the WT’s long commitment to creating inclusive events that bring athletes together. AP and Team American Portfolios look forward to a successful 2019, filled with inspiring WT events.

    RICHMOND, British Columbia, Oct. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sage, a global technology business and Premier Partner of the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, today announces the launch of the Sage Power 50 – a unique showcase of 50 leading veteran run or owned businesses from across Australia, UK, US, and Canada.Nominated for their leadership and determination to succeed, the Sage Power 50 is a unique collection of testimony from veteran entrepreneurs on how they built their business against the odds. Launched in the run up to the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, Sage believe that these compelling stories will educate the business community and inspire the next generation of veteran business leaders.

    Over the next five years, one million service members will transition out of just the U.S military alone; with one in four wanting to start their own business. The Sage Power 50 reveals the challenges, sacrifices and tough decisions that will underpin the transition into business for many veterans; as well as the advice and insight that helps to reshape service honed skills into the world of entrepreneurship.

    Debbie Wall, VP Sage Foundation, said:

    “Every single story in the Power 50 is undeniable proof that when barriers are removed that prevent millions of veterans from living their fullest life after service—it isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s sound business.

    “We believe that with tailored support, mentoring and early intervention, a new generation of veteran led businesses could unleash a wave of talent and innovation across the global entrepreneurial community.

    “Together with our nonprofit partners, we are committed to helping more veterans secure a brighter future.”

    Innovative business leaders just like Power 50 member, Steve Day, Founder of Reticle, based in Canada, believes in life after service to your country:

    "At Reticle we are proud of our nomination and affiliation with Sage's Power 50, The Invictus Games, and The Prince's Trust Canada. My journey from serving our country to serving our clients has been a seamless transition and exciting adventure. I believed that the vast majority of veteran leadership, teamwork, critical thinking and organizational skills would directly translate across to the business world and I’ve been proven right with Reticle's success. Reticle encourages every Canadian and allied veteran to look for programs similar to what The Invictus Games and Prince's Trust Canada affords them. There is no reason that life after your service to your country cannot be just as exhilarating and meaningful if you find the right new team to fit into. In the business world you are just serving in a different foxhole as you help your country prosper."

    Sage Power 50 members were nominated by leading military nonprofits in countries who have hosted the Invictus Games; the UK, USA and Canada, alongside this year’s host – Australia.

    In Canada, Sage Foundation non-profit partner Princes Trust Canada supported the Power 50. Sharon Broughton, CEO of Prince’s Trust Canada said: “We are thrilled to have graduates from our Prince’s Operation Entrepreneur program showcased in Sage Power 50. It is a perfect opportunity to highlight their resilience, determination and achievements as they leave the military and become successful entrepreneurs.”

    2018 will mark the third year of Sage’s partnership with the Invictus Games. A signatory of the UK’s Armed Forces Covenant and recognised as one of just 50 organisations in 2018 to be given the ‘Gold Award’ for their outstanding support of the Armed Forces; Sage is already delivering the Sage Military Mentoring Programme in the UK.  

    Sage will now build a legacy for after the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, by working with nonprofit, Soldier On. Sage Foundation funding and workshops in HR and entrepreneurialism will result in more veterans, service personnel and their families getting the support they need to start their own business or develop entrepreneurial skills. 

    Sage Foundation will also work with Prince’s Trust Australia’s Enterprise for Veteran’s Program, including a roll out of donated Sage software and Cloud Accounting workshops to participants.

    Strong Supporter of DEA’s National Drug Take Back Day

    HOUSTON, Oct. 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sharps Compliance, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMED), a nationwide provider of management services for medical waste and unused medication, announces that it  has properly processed and treated more than 2.7 million pounds of unused ultimate-user medications since 2009. This milestone, achieved primarily through the use of its MedSafe® and TakeAway Medication Recovery System™ Envelopes designed for the safe, convenient, and proper disposal of opioid painkillers and other unused medications, coincides with the Drug Enforcement Administration’s 16th “National Prescription Drug Take Back Day” on October 27, 2018. Sharps Compliance is committed to helping communities and citizens dispose of unused medications to combat the growing epidemic of prescription drug abuse and accidental poisonings throughout the year and has been a longtime supporter of the DEA drug take back event which occurs annually in April and October.“We believe that safe, convenient, and proper disposal of prescription medication, including controlled substances, is a vital component in the national effort to combat prescription drug abuse, in conjunction with education, research, and treatment,” said David P. Tusa, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sharps Compliance, Inc. “As market recognition and use of our MedSafe and TakeAway Medication Recovery System Envelopes has increased, the collection, processing, and treatment of unused medications represents a growing portion of our business. We are proud to see our solutions play an active role assisting healthcare providers and facilities as well as local communities and state governments in their efforts to confront the opioid crisis head on.”

    Sharps Compliance has deployed approximately 3,000 MedSafe collection receptacles into retail and hospital pharmacies, and to long-term care, drug treatment, and licensed law enforcement facilities since the release of the updated DEA disposal regulations in 2014. Customers have returned over 20,000 inner liners with nearly 900,000 pounds of unused medications. Sharps has sold more than 3.4 million TakeAway Medication Recovery Envelopes since 2009.

    MedSafe is an ultimate-user unused medication collection and disposal system. This easy-to-operate system accepts controlled (Schedules II-V), non-controlled, and over-the-counter medicines. The patent-pending MedSafe medication disposal program operates under, and is in compliance with, the October 2014 DEA rules and regulations.

    The TakeAway Envelopes are available at participating pharmacies. Customers can simply purchase a USPS postage-paid TakeAway Envelope, place their unused medications in the envelope, and drop it in any mailbox. The TakeAway Envelope is specially designed for the proper disposal, transportation, and treatment of all drugs, including controlled substances. Local and federal governments, as well as the private sector, have stepped up to provide the envelopes to communities and citizens to help with medication disposal.

    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Overdose deaths involving prescription opioids were five times higher in 2016 than in 1999.” Altarum estimated that the opioid crisis has cost the country more than “$1 trillion from 2001 to 2017 and is projected to cost an additional $500 billion by 2020.”

    Sharps Compliance partners with public and private entities to address the growing problem of opioid abuse, working closely with federal agencies, such as the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense as well as state governments, like Montana and North Dakota. Sharps also works with private businesses, such as independent and chain pharmacies, long-term care facilities, hospitals and healthcare systems, and narcotic treatment facilities. Sharps Compliance applauds the efforts of these organizations stepping up to help their communities.
