    East Texas Facility Secures Elite Certification for Wound Management

    ATHENS, Texas (PRWEB) November 29, 2018

    South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center, part of the award-winning network of StoneGate Senior Living facilities, announces it has been certified by Vohra Wound Physicians as a Center of Excellence for Wound Management.

    The facility joins its sister facility, Park Place Nursing and Rehabilitation, in joining an elite community; only 10% of Vohra’s skilled nursing facility partners have qualified for this annual certification.

    Certification criteria for this recognition includes a facility wound-related hospitalization rate of less than one percent, tracking and reporting of wound outcomes, Vohra physician-led weekly rounds, and a Vohra-certified nurse on staff.

    “South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center is committed to excellence in care, and wound management is a significant need for our patients,” said Mimi Cundieff, Administrator, South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center. “Our patients with chronic or complex wounds will receive exceptional, certified care as part of the Vohra wound management program.”

    “Having South Place Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center join sister care facility Park Place in earning this certification is a source of great pride and underscores our commitment to excellent care,” said Angela Norris, Senior Vice President of Business Development, StoneGate Senior Living. “As an award-winning group of care and living facilities committed to serving our patients, we are delighted to see our facilities earn the Vohra wound care certification.”

    South Place’s participation in the Vohra wound care certification program ensures that physician-led bedside wound care is provided at the facility for treatment of wound and skin issues, reducing the need to send residents out to wound care centers or hospitals.

    South Place delivers an integrated team of care professionals, ensuring a wound physician works with the primary care physicians, physical therapists, staff nurses and other specialists to provide residents with excellent wound care. As long-term facilities continue to provide more specialized services with complex ailments, the presence of a wound physician is an important cornerstone of a nursing and rehabilitation program.

    SAN DIEGO, Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Envision Solar International, Inc., (OTCQB: EVSI) (“Envision Solar,” or the “Company”), the leading producer of unique and sustainable infrastructure products for electric vehicle charging, energy security and outdoor media, announced that Summit Credit Union has selected the Company’s EV ARC™ products to provide emissions-free EV charging for employees at Summit Credit Union Headquarters in Wisconsin.“As a customer-owned financial cooperative, we run our business sustainably and support our employees and members in their own sustainable practices. So, it was natural for us, when planning Summit Credit Union’s new headquarters, to look into car charging stations. We were happy to find Envision’s stations which allow us to offer easy access to car charging through free-standing stations that did not require costly structural support and are powered by the sun! We see it as a win-win-win for Summit, our members and employees, and the earth,” said Kim Sponem, President & CEO of Summit Credit Union. 

    Summit Credit Union partnered with J.H. Findorff & Son Inc. to find sustainable solutions for their new headquarters. They chose the EV ARC™ product because of its rapid and impact free installation.

    “Summit Credit Union is the latest company to recognize the benefits of driving on sunshine with our EV ARCs,” said Desmond Wheatley, President & CEO of Envision Solar. “We applaud J.H. Findorff & Son Inc. for joining City of New York, State of California, City of Pittsburgh and others for using EV ARC products as their primary source for EV charging.”

    Invented and manufactured in California, the patented EV ARC™ and EV ARC™ HP products fit inside single parking spaces without reducing available parking. EV ARC™ generates enough clean solar electricity to power up to 225 miles of EV driving in a day. EV ARC™ HP DC fast charging systems provide up to 1100 miles per day. The EV ARC™ system’s solar electrical generation is enhanced by EnvisionTrak™ (patented) which causes the solar array to follow the sun, generating up to 25% more electricity than a fixed array. The energy is stored in the EV ARC™ product’s on-board energy storage for charging day or night, and to provide EV charging and emergency power during grid failure. The EV ARC™ product is a permanent solution that provides Level I, Level II and DC Fast Charging but because it requires no trenching, foundations or installation work of any kind, it is deployed in minutes and can be moved to a new location with ease.  EV ARC™ products are manufactured in the company’s San Diego facility by combat veterans, individuals with disabilities, and other minority demographics and highly talented, mission-driven team members.

    Official opening of the video surveillance-powered exhibit kicks off the Wisconsin's 75th Anniversary Celebration

    NORFOLK, Va. (PRWEB) November 29, 2018

    The city of Norfolk and the Nauticus Foundation will officially launch the Ship Experience Access Room aboard the Battleship Wisconsin with a ribbon cutting ceremony on December 7, 2018. The ceremony will be hosted by Nauticus and IPConfigure, a global video surveillance software company headquartered in Norfolk, Virginia that donated the surveillance system equipment, software and labor needed for the project with their partners, including Axis Communications and ScanSource Security.

    The Ship Experience Access Room was developed for visitors that want to experience the Battleship Wisconsin, but are unable to physically take the tour. Built in the former Administrative Office of the Wisconsin, the Ship Experience Access Room creates a virtual tour of the ship through the use of video surveillance equipment.

    Designed to mimic a control center, the room is equipped with four, high resolution monitors with individual access to IPConfigure’s video surveillance management software, Orchid Fusion. Visitors are able to sit at a station and create their own tour of the Wisconsin as they navigate through the software.

    “With 20 cameras online, IPConfigure has opened up almost 10,000 sq. ft of space to about 20 percent of visitors that simply can’t navigate ladder stairs down three decks and back up”, said Clayton Allen, Battleship operations manager.

    The project kicked off in 2017 when IPConfigure invited partners throughout the surveillance industry to Norfolk to assist with the system installation. The team configured dozens of cameras, switches, servers, monitors and pulled over 10,000 feet of network cables. They set up all the equipment to work seamlessly with IPConfigure’s Orchid Fusion video management software

    “This project gave IPConfigure an opportunity to contribute to the USS Wisconsin in an unconventional way. It provides a unique opportunity for curators to provide access to visitors who otherwise wouldn’t be able to experience this historic ship. We’re proud to give back to our local community, veterans and visitors from around the world,” said Christopher Uiterwyk, president and CEO of IPConfigure.

    A soft opening of the new exhibit was held during the Battleship Wisconsin Reunion in September 2018. IPConfigure staffed the Experience Room and had the opportunity to sit with veterans that were unable to tour the ship. As the veterans navigated through the software and accessed the live cameras, they were able to share stories of their time in the Navy and on the Wisconsin.

    With the official opening to the public, the Ship Experience Access Room is able to honor the history and preservation of the Battlefield Wisconsin, and enable more visitors to experience one of the last battleships built by the U.S. Navy.

    “It is wonderful to be able to bring all generations on board to view the working and living spaces of a Navy sailor,” said Dustin Uhl, senior exhibit manager of the Nauticus Foundation.

    The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place on Friday, December 7, 2018 at 8:30 a.m., on the Battleship Wisconsin located at One Waterside Drive in Downtown Norfolk. Reported by PRWeb 23 hours ago.

    Clinical Data Quality Research Recognized for Contributions to the Greater Understanding of Interoperability Progress and Remaining Barriers

    FARMINGTON, Conn. (PRWEB) November 29, 2018

    Diameter Health, a leading enabler of clinical insight through the automated cleansing, de-duplication and enrichment of clinical data across the care continuum, today announced it received the Distinguished Paper Award at the American Medical Informatics Association (AMIA) 2018 Annual Symposium for its research paper titled, “Interoperability Progress and Remaining Data Quality Barriers of Certified Health Information Technologies.” John D’Amore, MS, President and co-founder of Diameter Health, and one of the paper’s authors, co-presented the study’s findings at the Annual Symposium.

    The paper, one of only a handful selected by the AMIA Awards Committee from hundreds of entries, examines interoperability improvements made possible by the Consolidated Clinical Document Architecture (C-CDA), the primary standard for clinical document exchange in the United States. The paper’s findings indicate that while technical conformance to the standard has matured, automated tooling and surveillance of data quality are necessary to address remaining critical data access and patient safety issues that arise from care transitions, electronic health record (EHR) migration, and other data interchange activities.

    “This research reaffirms what we’ve long heard anecdotally from colleagues and customers: normalization and enrichment tools are needed to account for the shortcomings of current clinical data exchange standards,” said Eric Rosow, CEO and co-founder of Diameter Health. “We’re incredibly proud that a respected organization like AMIA recognized the team’s expertise and valuable contributions to support industry-wide efforts to advance interoperability.”

    In addition to D’Amore, a number of other authors contributed to the paper, including Diameter Health’s Chun Li, PhD and Margaret Donahue, MD, Jonathan Nebeker MD, Omar Bouhaddou, PhD, Sandra Mitchell, RPh, MSIS, and Todd Turner from Veterans Health Administration.

    About Diameter Health
    Diameter Health enables clinical insight through the normalization, cleansing, de-duplication and enrichment of clinical data from across the care continuum. This creates a single, unified source of longitudinal structured patient information for improved care and actionable analytics. The Diameter Health platform empowers organizations that depend on multi-source data streams, such as Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), health systems and health plans, to realize greater value from their data.

    Manufacturing Executive, Jaime Urquidi, to Oversee Parsable’s Expansion Into Latin America as International Demand for the Company’s Connected Worker Platform Grows

    SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) November 29, 2018

    Parsable, the Connected Worker Platform company, today announced that it has appointed Jaime Urquidi to head its Latin American operations. Urquidi is a seasoned global supply chain leader who was previously head of logistics quality and systems for Walmart Mexico, and also held operational leadership positions at Coca-Cola, Procter & Gamble and Unilever.

    Following its recent $45 million Series C investment – one of the largest investment rounds to date for Industry 4.0-based digital transformation – Parsable is continuing its fast-paced growth trajectory with its expansion into Latin America. Digital transformation and the rise of Industry 4.0 have driven increasing international interest in the Connected Worker space, with companies strategizing on the most effective ways for their workers to leverage new technologies in order to collaborate and work more efficiently.

    “We’re seeing increasing international demand for Parsable’s Connected Worker platform as digitalization goes truly global, and as companies recognize that they must empower their frontlines or risk having an obsolete workforce and an enormous data gap in their operations," said Lawrence Whittle, Parsable CEO. "Regional leaders are starting to embrace the next wave of competitive advantage, and Jaime Urquidi is such a leader. We are delighted that he is joining us to help even more of the market accelerate their digital transformation and Industry 4.0 strategies."

    With more than 20 years of experience in helping organizations implement large-scale changes through lean manufacturing, Urquidi will be tasked with expanding ready-access to Parsable expertise and solutions, and building a team to help a growing list of prospects and customers in the region to quick-start their digital transformation efforts.

    “In my role leading factories and supply chains over the last two decades, I saw firsthand how even the biggest companies in the world struggle with digital,” said Urquidi. “Vendors offered us sensors and automation solutions, but we were presented with very little usable technology for the frontline workers that would help us improve our operations. To say the space was underserved is an understatement. Parsable makes digital transformation an achievable near-term goal for my colleagues in the industry. I’m excited to get to work helping them rethink just how fast they can make digital transformation a reality.”

    About Parsable

    Spring Hope, NC, Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE -- Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with bi-coastal processing centers including the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in the western hemisphere (in Spring Hope, North Carolina), announced today that a tentative agreement has been reached by the Senate Agriculture Committee on the 2018 Farm Bill, meaning the U.S. could federally legalize hemp growing, production and distribution by as early as next week.Despite a months-long stalemate on aspects of the Farm Bill, important legislators have stated that they have come to tentative agreement on the outstanding issues of the bill, which means the bill is expected to pass well before the end of 2018. When passed, the bill will allow states to regulate hemp, as well as allow hemp researchers to apply for grants from the Agriculture Department and make hemp farmers eligible for crop insurance.

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) initially introduced the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 in the Senate’s version of the farm bill including provisions to legalize hemp and remove it from the federal list of controlled substances.

    “This is an exciting update regarding the expected passage of the 2018 Farm Bill, which would include provisions to legalize industrial hemp,” said Hemp, Inc. CEO Bruce Perlowin. “McConnell has confirmed that the provision legalizing hemp as an agricultural commodity will be included in the final version of the bill, which will allow hemp farmers across the country to commence their trade. As these legal avenues create new opportunities to join the hemp movement, Hemp, Inc. continues to further expand its footprint by entering new markets and working with farmers across the nation.”

    To see 1 minute videos of everything Hemp, Inc.’s current activities, go to Bruce Perlowin’s personal Facebook page where he posts daily on all the activity Hemp, Inc. is doing around the country. (No other public company has this level of transparency than Hemp, Inc.) 

    Industrial hemp operating on a commercial scale is expected to bring economic benefit throughout the rural U.S. The plant, once a major crop, produces strong fabric and has some 50,000 uses. Congress included a pathway to hemp growing in the 2014 Farm Bill, allowing states to run pilot programs to research its viability for commercial production, while the Hemp Farming Act in the 2018 Farm Bill is expected to federally legalize hemp before the end of this year. 

    Hemp, Inc. has opened hemp processing facilities in Spring Hope, North Carolina; Dolan Springs, Arizona; Medford, Oregon; and is continuing to scout new locations for processing centers nationwide. Hemp, Inc. aims to boost the economies of these towns by offering affordable hemp processing services, which incentivizes local growers to add hemp to their crop rotation. 

    Notably, there are now over 40 states in the nation that have legalized hemp. In 2017, the acreage of hemp production expanded by 163 percent through agricultural sites in 19 states. The major driving factor is the cannabidiol (CBD) market, which is growing enormously in the United States and beyond. Companies seeking to enter or further develop their footprint in the industrial hemp marketplace are aligning with Hemp, Inc. for the company’s proven expertise and state-of-the-art hemp processing and manufacturing infrastructure in Spring Hope, North Carolina. Hemp, Inc.’s 85,000 square foot industrial hemp processing and manufacturing facility has been operational since August 2017.

    Hemp, Inc. has also been helping to build the industrial hemp infrastructure that was basically non-existent in America. It has six hemp infrastructures, Divisions One through Six:  

    Division One – The Industrial Hemp Infrastructure

    Division Two – The Hemp Extraction Infrastructure

    Division Three – The Hemp Farming Infrastructure

    Division Four – The Hemp Educational Infrastructure (The Hemp University)

    Division Five – The Hemp Marketing Infrastructure

    Division Six - Accessories, Products and Services 

    Division Six is the company’s newest division to be formed, which focuses on the sale of hemp accessories such as the sale of extractors, storage bags, containers, fertilizer, soil amendments, humidifiers, dehumidifiers, balers, greenhouses, and greenhouse equipment; the drying, trimming, curing, storing and brokering for other farmers; and ultimately anything else a hemp farmer may need to be successful.  

    The company’s 500-acre strategic growing partner Veteran Village Kins Community in Golden Valley, Arizona, is also designed to grow hemp and produce CBD products to benefit veterans as well as generate revenue for Hemp, Inc., the Veteran Village and individual veterans living in the community. Hemp, Inc. executives are also continuing to scout new locations nationwide to open additional hemp processing centers in legal markets. 

    For a more complete description on the Veteran Village Kins Community (as mentioned above), read the following October 24, 2017 press release, “Hemp, Inc. Announces Strategic Hemp Growing Partner ‘Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.’ Completes Final Site Plan Blueprints”, below: 

    Hemp, Inc. has announced that its strategic growing partner, "Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.", has completed its final site plan blueprints for its 500-acre site in Golden Valley, Arizona (20 miles north of Kingman, AZ and 90 minutes from Las Vegas, NV). The site plan was submitted to the Mohave County Building Department for final review. The Company is also in the final stages of completing the necessary infrastructure to support an off-grid, renewable, energy system. With the solar equipment in place, the site's solar power operation will be completed in the next days.

    As soon as the live streaming video cameras are up and operational, the world can actually see the way the Veteran Village Kins Community is designed and watch it being built. According to Perlowin, the basic framework or overall plan of the Veteran Village Kins Communities is to create a holistic healing and learning center that is designed to educate and heal veterans with PSTD, alcoholism, meth addiction, opioid addiction, and other psychological conditions while at the same time training them on the numerous aspects of being part of the emerging multi-billion dollar hemp industry.  

    We will also be building hemp-growing communities for other groups such as "Abused" Women & Children Village Kins Communities, the "Orphaned" Children Village Kins Communities, "Homeless" Village Kins Communities and the "Healers" Village Kins Communities (the healers are professionals who are knowledgeable in the modalities to treat these traumatized groups).  These particular communities are all synergistically aligned to work simultaneously supporting each other. 

    For example, the "Healers" heal the traumatized veterans and women & children; the women support orphan children, and orphan children want to see people living in homes and not homeless. Thus, a portion of the hemp grown in each community goes to create and support another community, giving everybody a sense of giving back and helping others as they help themselves. This circles back to the healers who also work to heal the veterans and the other traumatized groups. This is the economic foundation on how the sale of the hemp products operates as a "quantum economic matrix" or an example of "symbiotic economics" which is more complex than this brief description allows.

    Dwight Jory, the Project Manager for the "Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.”, said, "We are very happy with the progress. Our Kins Community is really beginning to come together." In anticipation of planting to begin during the spring, 300 acres have been fenced, 16 overnight trailer park sites are under construction, and six 40x40-ft organic vegetable gardens have been planted and are currently producing food and kenaf, according to Jory. These organic gardens double as experimental growing modules using an entire array of different growing technologies to see which modalities grow the best in a desert environment. As for the 6 geodesic domes mentioned in an earlier press release, 1 is structurally complete with only the electrical and plumbing to be completed. The rest are on site awaiting final site plan approval.

    "We are now accepting volunteers who have expressed an interest in helping to build the first Kins Community for our veterans," said Jory. Those interested in making the first hemp growing CBD-producing "Veteran Village Kins Community" become a reality should contact Ms. Sandra Williams via email (swilliams@hempinc.com).

    One thousand trees, on 36 of the 500-acres, have also been planted, with an additional 1,000 trees on order. The "Veteran Village Kins Community" will include a 100,000-square foot GMP compliant, central processing plant, a state-of-the-art testing laboratory, and various health and wellness centers to support veterans who may have psychological, emotional or health issues.

    "As Hemp, Inc. positions itself on the forefront of America's industrial hemp revolution, we see our partnership with 'Veteran Village Kins Community Arizona, Inc.' being paramount in supporting the small family farm movement that we are confident will reshape the American landscape," said Perlowin. "As we work toward getting our eco-village up and running in Arizona, we are also aggressively scouting strategic locations in other states including North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee and West Virginia. Giving veterans and other Americans a place to learn new skills and take part in this multi-billion-dollar hemp CBD market is very exciting. It's a big part of our mission to give back.  Recently we have expanded our Kins Community concept internationally focusing, but not limited to, Israel, New Zealand, Canada, Africa, and Uruguay." 

    According to Perlowin, we hope to have 50 "master hemp growers" working on their first Veteran Village Kins Community in Arizona. To date, we have growers from Oregon, Colorado, California, Kentucky, North Carolina, Nevada and, Arizona who have expressed an interest in pursuing a joint venture with Hemp, Inc. to each grow industrial hemp on 5 of the 300 fenced acres in Arizona. Perlowin says he'll call this "The Great United American Hemp Project."  Any grower having an interest in pursuing a joint venture on 5 of the 300 fenced in acres in Arizona should contact Project Manager Dwight Jory. Or, anyone interested in attending the 2-7-day hands-on hempcrete house building should contact Dwight Jory as well. (Dates to be determined.)

    ABOUT HEMP, INC.

    With a deep-rooted social and environmental mission at its core, Hemp, Inc. seeks to build a business constituency for the American small farmer, the American veteran, and other groups experiencing the ever-increasing disparity between tapering income and soaring expenses. As a leader in the industrial hemp industry with ownership of the largest commercial multi-purpose industrial hemp processing facility in North America, Hemp, Inc. believes there can be tangible benefits reaped from adhering to a corporate social responsibility plan.

    WHAT IS HEMP?

    Hemp is a durable natural fiber that is grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. It's one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man. Hemp is used in nutritional food products such as hemp seeds, hemp hearts and hemp proteins, for humans. It is also used in building materials, paper, textiles, cordage, organic body care and other nutraceuticals, just to name a few. It has thousands of other known uses. A hemp crop requires half the water alfalfa uses and can be grown without the heavy use of pesticides. Farmers worldwide grow hemp commercially for fiber, seed, and oil for use in a variety of industrial and consumer products. The United States is the only developed nation that fails to cultivate industrial hemp as an economic crop on a large scale, according to the Congressional Resource Service. However, with rapidly changing laws and more states gravitating towards industrial hemp and passing an industrial hemp bill, that could change. Currently, the majority of hemp sold in the United States is imported from China and Canada, the world's largest exporters of the industrial hemp crop.

    9 GREAT REASONS TO INCLUDE HEMP AS PART OF A HEALTHY DIET (Source)

    HOW HEMP CAN CHANGE THE WORLD

    Fuel - While the industrial, medicinal and commercial properties of hemp have been known to mankind for a very long time, its benefits to the environment have just been realized in recent years. One of the compelling things hemp offers is fuel. Reserves of petroleum are being depleted. Right now, we are depleting our reserves of petroleum and buying it up from other countries. It would be nice if we could have a fuel source which was reusable and which we could grow right here, making us completely energy independent. 

    Industries in search of sustainable and eco-friendly processes are realizing hemp as a viable option. Hemp can provide an alternative, more efficient source of energy in the fuel industry. "The woody hemp plant is low in moisture; it dries quickly and is an efficient biomass source of methanol. The waste products produced by using hemp oil are a good source of ethanol. Both methanol and ethanol are produced from hemp through the efficient and economical process of thermo-chemical conversion. One acre of hemp yields 1,000 gallons or 3,785 liters of fuel. Hemp allows a lesser reliance on fossil fuels, which are non-renewable sources of energy and will not be able to meet the increasing global demands for long."

    Petroleum fuel increases carbon monoxide in the atmosphere and contributes heavily to global warming and the greenhouse effect, which could lead to global catastrophe in the next 50 years if these trends continue. Do you want to find out if they are right, or do you want to grow the most cost effective and environmentally safe fuel source on the planet? Using hemp as an energy and rotation crop would be a great step in the right direction.

    Community developed guidance for identity-centric security implementations to be published at Gartner IAM Summit, December 3rd

    DENVER, Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), an industry alliance that is helping organizations reduce the risk of a breach by improving security through identity, today announced a series of milestones in its efforts to unite the industry to advance security through identity.  The IDSA is pleased to welcome three new vendor members to the Alliance – Centrify, Idaptive and One Identity.  In addition, industry and security veterans from Adobe, Brighthouse Financial, Optum Health and Wells Fargo have joined IDSA’s Customer Advisory Board, providing input into the expanding community that collaborates to create and share practical guidance for implementing identity-centric security strategies.

    “The IDSA membership continues to grow as vendors in both the identity and security spaces recognize that practitioners are hungry for education and best practices on how to bring these two worlds together for the best possible security,” said Julie Smith, newly appointed IDSA Executive Director.  “Our customer advisory board members contributed to the latest resources, giving us the user perspective that is key to helping ensure we always deliver real value to the practitioner community.”

    The IDSA will be publishing and discussing its latest body of work at the Gartner IAM Summit, December 3^rd - 5^th at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas at booth #629 and in a panel session on Tuesday, 2pm in the Expo Theatre 1.  The IDSA Framework expands upon use cases developed by the IDSA Technical Working Group, and provides new resources that give organizations the building blocks to help transition to identity-centric security.

    “I’m excited to join the IDSA customer advisory board and give back to the community by helping identity and security practitioners realize the benefit of bringing their identity and security programs closer together,” said Carlos Garcia, Enterprise Architect in the Optum Office of the CIO. “It’s an ongoing challenge for organizations like Optum to leverage existing technologies in unique ways to stay secure.  The latest resources will help organizations of all sizes and in all industries kickstart those efforts.”

    Identity and security practitioners are invited to review these latest resources and provide feedback by joining the IDSA online community.  Launched this summer, the IDSA online community gives practitioners a place to collaborate with their peers and with vendors.

    While at the Gartner IAM Summit, learn more about the IDSA at booth #629, or visit with member companies including:  BeyondTrust, Bomgar, Centrify, CyberArk, Gemalto, Okta, One Identity, Optiv, Ping Identity, SailPoint, SecureAuth, STEALTHbits, Varonis.  In addition, you are invited to a panel discussion on *Tuesday, December 4^th, at 2 pm. in Expo Theatre 1:* 

    *20 Questions:  Putting Identity at the Center of Security*
    Panel:  Richard Bird, Ping Identity; Tom Malta, Wells Fargo; Eric Anderson, Adobe
    Enterprise identities can be prone to attacks if not protected properly. While some could argue identity has not always been considered a foundational element of the security architecture, it is emerging as the steel thread that can help reduce risks. Find out how a former CISO, a Wells Fargo IAM leader and an Adobe Security leader are helping organizations reduce risk through crowdsourced best practices and practical guidance for implementing identity-centric security strategies.

    *Quotes from new members:*
    “The abuse of privileged credentials continues to be the leading cause of breaches, and organizations must understand that just one compromised credential or unverified identity can cost them millions.  We’re very excited to join IDSA and the other industry leaders who are committed to stopping breaches for good. We believe our focus on Zero Trust Privilege will bring a fresh voice to the table and we look forward to collaborating with the community to develop unique strategies for practitioners.”
    David McNeely, Chief Strategy Officer, Centrify Corp.

    “Continuing education is perhaps the most important – and overlooked – part of every identity and security practitioner’s job.  As a member of the IDSA, Idaptive will have the opportunity to offer our insights about bringing identity and security programs closer together, as well as learning from the collective group. Our goal as a company is to make sure that we help develop the right security strategy and approach so that every one of our customers has the tools to enable identity and security to work hand-in-hand –– and we’re looking forward to participating in discussions about how to do that with the IDSA community.”
    Danny Kibel, CEO, Idaptive

    "Failure to properly manage and secure identities continues to be one of the most common causes of today's enterprise data breaches -- but with the right education and measures in place, it can be easily one of the most avoidable.  A mission to help organizations reduce the risk of a breach by improving security through identity is an easy cause for One Identity to get behind, and we're thrilled to join forces with and support IDSA in this endeavor."
    Jackson Shaw, vice president, Product Management, One Identity.

    *About the Identity Defined Security Alliance*
    The Identity Defined Security Alliance is a group of identity and security vendors, solution providers and practitioners that acts as an independent source of education and information on identity centric security strategies.  The IDSA facilitates community collaboration to create a body of knowledge that provides organizations with practical guidance, implementation best practices and validated solutions to reduce the risk of a breach.  The IDSA was originally established in 2015 by Ping Identity, with Optiv as founding solution provider.

    VA Denies Claim It Won't Reimburse Veterans For Underpaid GI Benefits Watch VideoA top government official is denying reports that veterans who are underpaid their GI Bill benefits won't get paid back later. 

    The issue started in August when a new law required Veterans Affairs to start calculating housing payments for student veterans with a new formula.

    That math was apparently more difficult than the VA's computers could handle, resulting in delayed or incorrect payments for thousands of people. So the VA decided to change course and revert back to the old calculations, for now. The agency said it plans to re-implement the new formulas in December 2019, and any veteran who gets underpaid will be retroactively compensated.

    But on Wednesday, NBC News reported that wasn't the VA's plan. According to the network, the VA told Congress it doesn't plan to reimburse veterans who are underpaid. One aide reportedly said, "They are essentially going to ignore the law and say that that change only goes forward from December 2019." 

    Paul Lawrence, the VA's man in charge of benefits, told Congress Thursday morning that is just not true. 

    "We will make those people whole, OK? Overpayments, if there are any, will be disregarded. Underpayments will be adjusted, and those veterans will get a check in January," Lawrence said.  Reported by Newsy 17 hours ago.

    VA officials told lawmakers the amount of work it would take to figure out how many were shortchanged by how much might not be worth it to veterans.

    Quarterly Revenues increased 233% to $14.7 Million

    TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- *MPX Bioceutical Corporation *(“*MPX*” or the “*Company*”) (CSE: MPX; OTC: MPXEF) today reports financial results for its fiscal second quarter for the three month period ended September 30, 2018 and provides a general business update. All figures are presented in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated.*Operational and Financial Highlights for the Fiscal Second Quarter of 2019 *

    · Record quarterly revenues of $14.7 million for the fiscal second quarter of 2019, versus $4.4 million for the fiscal second quarter of 2018, up 233%.
    · Entered into a binding share purchase agreement to acquire Spartan Wellness Corporation (“*Spartan*”), a Canadian veteran advisory group.
    · Expanded Maryland footprint with the opening of its first managed Health for Life Dispensary located in downtown Bethesda.
    · Adjusted EBITDA loss of $1.0 million, a 42% sequential improvement from fiscal Q1 2019.

    *Subsequent Events (October 2018)*

    · Announced arrangement agreement pursuant to which MPX will combine with iAnthus in an all-stock transaction with offered equity consideration to MPX shareholders valued at $835 million.
    · Successfully upgraded U.S. share trading to the OTCQX® Best Market after meeting strict financial, disclosure and third party sponsorship requirements.
    · Expanded Maryland footprint with the opening of the second and third managed Health for Life dispensaries in Baltimore and White Marsh.

    “For the second quarter, we again experienced strong growth, with revenue increasing $10.3 million year over year, topping $14.7 million, driven by the strong performance of our Arizona operations and much improved production from our facility in Nevada,” said W. Scott Boyes, Chairman, President and CEO of MPX. “We continue to execute upon our aggressive expansion strategy, as demonstrated by the successful openings of the Health for Life dispensaries in Maryland managed by one of MPX’s subsidiaries. Additionally, we continue to lay the framework for growth in our international operations, with renovations underway at our Owen Sound factory in Canada. We are also working to expand our agreement with Panaxia, which we believe will strategically bolster our growth strategy. Looking ahead, we expect our expanded Maryland footprint to drive significant revenue growth, as well as our Arizona operations as we continue to ramp production of our wholesale products.”

    Beth Stavola, COO of MPX, added, “Adding to our continued growth, we are excited about the prospect of merging with iAnthus for a deal that would further support our dramatic growth, allowing us to benefit from a larger platform that would extend the combined reach to ten states.”  

    *Business Overview for the Fiscal Second Quarter of 2019 and Recent Weeks*

    · *Arizona*: MPX continued to ramp up revenues from its Arizona operations, with sales increasing on both a year over year and sequential basis, driven by its four dispensaries and sales of its MPX-branded concentrates. MPX continues to increase production in Arizona. The anticipated addition of production and revenues from the Panaxia agreement to launch “pharma-grade” cannabis-based products in Arizona is expected to add to revenue growth in the state during the fiscal Q4 2019.
     
    · *California: *In July 2018, the Company entered into an extraction agreement with Case Farms Collective, the largest cannabis processing facility in Southern California, marking MPX’s entry into the State of California. Case Farms will provide full scale cannabis processing services to MPX, with all concentrate products manufactured to MPX’s proprietary specifications and guidelines. MPX-branded cannabis concentrates will be sold through Case’s network of licensed dispensaries throughout California beginning in January 2019.
     
    · *Massachusetts: *The Company owns the majority of Massachusetts-based cannabis management company IMT, LLC (“*IMT*”) and real estate holding company, Fall River Developments, LLC (“*FRD*”). MPX is currently building-out a 40,000 square feet cultivation and production facility and a dispensary in the community of Fall River. Both are expected to commence operations before the end of calendar Q1 2019.
     
    · *Maryland: *August saw the opening of the first Health for Life branded dispensary. This was followed by the opening of two more Health for Life branded dispensaries subsequent to the quarter end, in October 2018, one in Baltimore and a second in White Marsh, Maryland. The Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, S8 Management, LCC, manages each of the Health for Life dispensaries as well as a production facility in the state which is already selling MPX concentrates to multiple Maryland dispensaries.
     
    · *Nevada: *GreenMart NV’s fully-operational cultivation, production and kitchen facilities are operating at full capacity producing MPX-branded wholesale products for both the adult-use and medical markets in Nevada. The Company is committed to growing market share in Nevada by expanding GreenMart NV’s reach to include more consumers and patients. GreenMart NV has also applied for at least two dispensary licenses in the higher margin Las Vegas market which will operate under the “Health for Life” brand.
     
    · *Canada:* MPX acquired the outstanding shares in the capital of Spartan, an organization whose mission is to help veterans suffering from various ailments, mostly psychological, to reduce or eliminate dependencies on opioids by directing them towards medical cannabis.

    Spartan will direct a percentage of its sales through Canveda Inc. (“*Canveda*”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and a licensed producer under Health Canada’s Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations. Canveda continues to plant crops at its fully built-out 12,000 square foot facility, located in Peterborough, Ontario, with the first crop expected to be ready for sale during the fiscal third quarter of 2019.

    The Company also leases a property in Owen Sound, Ontario, for which an application to Health Canada has been made for a cannabis production and sales license. MPX has started work transforming part of the factory in Owen Sound into a state-of-the-art medical cannabis production facility.

    Furthermore, the Company is working to expand its arrangement with Panaxia. The Company plans to manufacture Panaxia’s products at its Owen Sound site and to market these products to patients in Canada, and potentially for export, under MPX’s Salus Biopharma brand.

    *Financial Overview*Below outlines the key financial metrics for MPX for its fiscal second quarter of 2019. A more detailed discussion of these and other metrics, as well as operational events, can be found in the Company’s Financial Statements, Management Discussion & Analysis (“*MD&A*”) filed on www.sedar.com.

    Revenues

    Revenues increased 233% to $14.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, up from $4.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. Revenue growth is primarily attributable to the Company’s Arizona management operations including sales from the four dispensaries in Arizona to patients holding medical marijuana cards issued by the State as well as wholesale sales of MPX branded concentrates to other licensed dispensaries within the state.

    Gross Profit

    Gross profit for the three months ending September 30, 2018, before adjustment for the unrealized gain in the fair value of biological assets, was $4.4 million or 30.1%, as compared to $1.9 million or 42.6% for the three months ended September 30, 2017. Gross profit after adjustment for the unrealized gain in the fair value of biological assets was $6.4 million, or 43.7% of sales, as compared to $2.9 million and 65.3% for the three months ended September 30, 2017. Lower margins reflect the impact from the recent Arizona acquisition, which included a portion of sales through a co-packed arrangement.

    Expenses

    Operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018 were $12.1 million, as compared to $3.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase was primarily attributable to $7.4 million in general and administrative expenses, due largely to increases in salaries and benefits as the Company increased staffing in Maryland and Massachusetts, and consulting fees to third parties, office and general. Professional fees in the three months ended September 30, 2018 was $1.8 million, as compared to approximately $758,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2017. Share based compensation expenses were $2.3 million, as compared to approximately $182,000 in the year-ago period.

    Other Income and Expenses

    The Company recorded $11.5 million in Other Expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to approximately $466,000 in Other Expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The increase in expenses includes accretion expenses of $1.4 million (non-cash), as compared to approximately $11,000 in the year-ago period, related to the convertible loan. The Company identified a write-down on inventory, recognizing an expense of approximately $528,000. Interest and financing costs were approximately $977,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to approximately $236,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2017, primarily related to the Hi-Med Facility and financing costs for the convertible loan. We also incurred expenses related to the change in fair value for the Hi-Med Facility and convertible loan for $9.2 million (these are non-cash adjustments) as compared to approximately $9,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2018.

    Adjusted EBITDA

    Adjusted EBITDA was loss of  $1.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, a 42% improvement over the loss of $1.8 million reported in the first fiscal quarter of 2019.

    Net Comprehensive Loss

    The Company recorded a net comprehensive loss of $19.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018, as compared to a net comprehensive loss of $3.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2017. The basic and diluted loss per MPX share for the three months ended September 30, 2018 totaled $0.05 versus $0.02 for the comparable period. The increase in net comprehensive loss is attributable to loss from operations of $5.7 million, accretion expense of $1.4 million and expenses related to the change in fair value for the Hi-Med Facility and convertible loan for $9.2 million (these are non-cash adjustments).

    Financing Activities

    The Company reported cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended September 30, 2018 of $36.5 million primarily due to proceeds from convertible loan of $51.9 million and proceeds from the exercise of warrants of $1.7 million. This was partially offset by advances to related parties of $1,209,821, repayment of a term loan of $12,249,300, repayment of a promissory note of $12,400, repayment of contingent consideration $573,500 and interest and financing charges paid of $3,270,549.

    Cash Balance and Liquidity

    As of September 30, 2018, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $17.7 million, up from $8.5 million as of March 31, 2018. The increase is due to proceeds from convertible loan and the exercise of warrants.

     The Corporation uses “Adjusted EBITDA”, which is not defined under IFRS. Management believes that these measures provide useful supplemental information to investors and is computed on a consistent basis for each reporting period. “Adjusted EBITDA” is a metric used by management which is income (loss) from operations, as reported, before interest, tax, and adjusted for removing other non-cash items, including the stock-based compensation expense, amortization and depreciation, non-cash occupancy costs, and the non-cash effects of accounting for biological assets and the non-cash effect of accounting for inventory acquired through acquisition at fair value. Management believes “Adjusted EBITDA” is a useful financial metric to assess its operating performance on a cash basis before the impact of non-cash items and acquisition related activities.

    Westboro, MA-based data destruction equipment manufacturer partners with Habitat for Humanity to support local veteran family

    WESTBOROUGH, Mass. (PRWEB) November 29, 2018

    On November 28, 2018, Security Engineered Machinery Co., Inc. (SEM), global leader in high security information end-of-life solutions, participated in Operation Playhouse, a unique program offered through Habitat for Humanity Metrowest/Greater Worcester. Operation Playhouse enables local businesses and organizations to build and donate a custom playhouse to benefit the children of local veterans and military personnel. The one-day event culminated with the presentation of the firetruck-themed playhouse to United States Marine Corps Operation Iraqi Freedom combat veteran Richard Brown and his family.

    The event started at 9am onsite at SEM corporate headquarters in Westboro. SEM employees volunteered to participate in various tasks including painting, constructing, roofing, and decorating the playhouse as well as building accessories. Several authentic firetruck items were donated by the Boston and Dunstable fire departments for use in the playhouse. The construction was overseen by David Hamilton, Community Program Manager for Habitat for Humanity. Veteran Richard Brown and his family, from Dunstable, MA, arrived at 3:30pm to receive the playhouse. Nicholas Cakounes, Executive Vice President of SEM, made the presentation.

    “Veterans have a special place in our heart here at SEM,” said Mr. Cakounes. “We are filled with gratitude to those who have served our country and protect our freedom, so giving back in some small way through Operation Playhouse was an absolute honor.”

    “This event was incredibly special to me personally,” added Korean War Veteran Leonard Rosen, who is SEM’s founder and Chairman of the Board. “Mr. Brown selflessly served his country, ensuring our rights and freedom. That is a debt we can never repay, so we were thrilled to be able to do something to bring joy to him and his family.”

    SEM is a veteran-owned company whose primary client base is the United States Federal Government and its entities, including all branches of the United States Military.

    We write to you as U.S. residents with great respect for your domestic policies.

    We support the position of more than 25,000 people who signed a petition during your presidential campaign urging you to take on militarism.

    We believe that Dr. King was correct to assert that racism, extreme materialism, and militarism needed to be challenged together rather than separately, and that this remains true.

    We believe this is not only practical advice, but a moral imperative, and — not coincidentally — good electoral politics.

    During your presidential campaign, you were asked repeatedly how you would pay for human and environmental needs that could be paid for with small fractions of military spending. Your answer was consistently complicated and involved raising taxes. We believe it would be more effective to more often mention the existence of the military and its price tag. “I would cut 4% of spending on the never-audited Pentagon” is a superior answer in every way to any explanation of any tax plan.

    Much of the case that we believe ought to be made is made in a video posted on your Facebook page in early 2018. But it is generally absent from your public comments and policy proposals. Your recent 10-point plan omits any mention of foreign policy whatsoever.

    We believe this omission is not just a shortcoming. We believe it renders what does get included incoherent. Military spending is well over 60% of discretionary spending. A public policy that avoids mentioning its existence is not a public policy at all. Should military spending go up or down or remain unchanged? This is the very first question. We are dealing here with an amount of money at least comparable to what could be obtained by taxing the wealthy and corporations (something we are certainly in favor of as well).

    A tiny fraction of U.S. military spending could end starvation, the lack of clean water, and various diseases worldwide. No humanitarian policy can avoid the existence of the military. No discussion of free college or clean energy or public transit should omit mention of the place where a trillion dollars a year is going.

    War and preparations for war are among the top destroyers, if not the top destroyer, of our natural environment. No environmental policy can ignore them.

    Militarism is the top source of the erosion of liberties, and top justification for government secrecy, top creator of refugees, top saboteur of the rule of law, top facilitator of xenophobia and bigotry, and top reason we are at risk of nuclear apocalypse. There is no area of our social life that is untouched by what Eisenhower called the military industrial complex.

    The U.S. public favors cutting military spending.

    Even candidate Trump declared the wars since 2001 to have been counterproductive, a statement that appears not to have hurt him on election day.

    A December 2014 Gallup poll of 65 nations found the United States to be far and away the country considered the largest threat to peace in the world, and a Pew poll in 2017 found majorities in most countries polled viewing the United States as a threat. A United States responsible for providing clean drinking water, schools, medicine, and solar panels to others would be more secure and face far less hostility around the world; that result would cost a fraction of what is invested in making the United States resented and disliked.

    Economists at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst have documented that military spending is an economic drain rather than a jobs program.

    We compliment you on your domestic policies. We recognize that the presidential primaries were rigged against you, and we do not wish to advance the baseless idea that you were fairly defeated. We offer our advice in a spirit of friendship. Some of us worked in support of your presidential campaign. Others of us would have worked, and worked hard, for your nomination had you been a candidate for peace.

    MoonX in Strategic Partnership with Top EOS Gaming DAPP - Royal Online Vegas *LONDON, UK / ACCESSWIRE / November 30, 2018 / *With an aim to promote the EOS ecosystem--both locally and in international markets--MoonX enters into a partnership with the top ranking DAPP, Royal Online Vegas. MoonX is a truly decentralised digital assets exchange platform whereas Royal Online Vegas is an online casino run on the EOS blockchain network. With this strategic partnership, MoonX will encourage the development of EOS-based gaming projects within the Asian community and support potential developers to prepare for EOS ecosystem building. On the other hand, Royal Online Vegas will help improve the overall experience of DAPP users by directly supporting the MoonX campaign for the EOS supernode and ease the adoption of EOS DAPP in global markets. The partnership will further increase the outreach of both the entities in the EOS Mainnet community.

    *The strategy for EOS community building*

    MoonX has strong associations within the developer community in India and SouthEast Asia and has co-held hackathon events in tech-hubs based in cities like Bangalore, Singapore and Delhi. The tie-ups with tech communities will allow MoonX to tap into the Asian market and invite outstanding developers to work on EOS-backed gaming models. To start with, MoonX plans to conduct blockchain events in India and build awareness about the EOS ecosystem within the local communities. Besides that, MoonX will introduce EOS and blockchain awareness to universities and support young potential developers to prepare better for the EOS ecosystem building.

    MoonX will soon be launching EOS bounty programs and Airdrops in order to drive the decentralisation mechanism and to popularise the EOS platform. The purpose of this is to enhance the utility of the network by incentivizing exclusive users. At the same time, MoonX will also conduct EOS based hackathons and startup competitions to harness the untapped potential of skilled developers across the country.

    MoonX has a funding mechanism for investment in different token funds and these funds would simultaneously be utilised for the development of exceptional EOS-based projects. The partnership between MoonX and Royal Online Vegas is grounded on the perception that the DAPPs of these two blockchain companies can significantly outperform the applications built on the Ethereum blockchain.

    *About Royal Online Vegas*

    Royal Online Vegas is an online casino run on the EOS blockchain network which provides games powered by a smart contract. Users can place bets through EOS transactions on the smart contract at zero cost. Its blockchain allows users to mine MEV tokens through a game-oriented betting system. At Royal Online Vegas, rewards are made available to the token holders on a recurring basis. The amount of rewards is proportional to the number of tokens each token holder has in relation to the current supply. One of the top EOS supernodes, Royal Online Vegas focuses on taking the essence of what people love about gambling and provide a gaming platform filled with thrill, excitement and entertainment.

    *About MoonX*

    MoonX, the world's fastest and safest digital assets exchange platform, built by world-class stock exchange and blockchain veterans, is the only exchange that lets users trade for a deterministic (implied) price. MoonX is the future of trading digital assets in a truly decentralised ecosystem and is co-owned by the entire MoonX Family. While existing solutions offer to solve just one problem at a time, MoonX offers a highly secure, useful and easy-to-use product based on the private blockchain. So far, MoonX has raised 29 million dollars in funding within a short period of time and is supported by BCH, DHVC, Fission Capital, PreAngel, NGC, Linear Venture, Ledger Capital, Node Capital, DU Capital, NEO, Badwater Capital and other investment institutions.
