More than 600 Volunteers Join the Movement to End World Hunger; Stop Hunger Now Partners with Savage to package 150,000 Meals

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) June 17, 2015

Stop Hunger Now and Savage are joining forces in the fight against hunger. More than 600 Savage team members, spouses and guests will package 150,000 meals in Salt Lake City, Utah on June 19th to help feed the worlds hungry. Stop Hunger Now meal packaging events are a volunteer-based program that coordinates the streamlined packaging of highly nutritious dehydrated meals comprised of rice, soy, vegetables and 23 essential vitamins and minerals.

Were grateful for our partnership with Stop Hunger Now to provide food for people around the world who dont have the basic necessities of life, said Kirk Aubry, Savage President and CEO. Working together, we can all make a difference in our communities locally and globally. I appreciate our team members for their willingness to serve others through this project and in so many other ways.

Around the world, nearly 795 million people lack adequate food. Stop Hunger Now operates meal packaging locations in 19 cities throughout the U.S. and five international locations in South Africa, Malaysia, the Philippines, Italy and India. More than 650,000 volunteers from corporations, churches, schools and civic organizations have packaged Stop Hunger Now meals.

This years Leaders Forum and service project will take place at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, where 150,000 meals will be packaged on June 19. This will be Stop Hunger Nows largest meal packaging event to date in Salt Lake City.

What we want everyone to know is that hunger is solvable and is the common thread among the worlds most challenging issues. When hunger is targeted, you give leverage and hope to every other cause including poverty, disease, education and the welfare of women and children, said Rod Brooks, President and CEO of Stop Hunger Now.

LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) June 08, 2015

Soundfreaq, maker of the critically acclaimed line of wireless speakers, is continuing the collaboration with husband-and-wife design team, Robert and Cortney Novogratz, to launch three new versions of Soundfreaqs award-winning wireless bedroom speaker and alarm clock, Sound Rise. The new versions of Sound Rise – Plaid Freaq, Field Freaq and Sea Freaq – combine The Novogratz unique designs with one of Soundfreaqs most popular and successful products. The limited edition speakers are currently available at Soundfreaq.com for $ 99 and are ready to ship in time for Fathers Day.

The Novogratz Collection for Soundfreaq matches The Novogratzs funky style with Soundfreaqs track record for offering products with smart features, impressive audio quality and the convenience of Bluetooth streaming. The design and color palette of the new limited edition collection of Sound Rises make them an especially great gift for any music-loving dad.

Weve been fans of the Novogratz for years and were thrilled to continue this collaboration with Bob and Cortney to bring their unique style into more homes, said Matthew Paprocki, co-founder and creative director of Soundfreaq. Adding their design aesthetic to our Sound Rise takes it to the next level and makes it a statement in any bedroom or even office.

Plaid Freaq, Field Freaq and Sea Freaq were inspired by Timber Cove Inn, a new hotel in Sonoma, CA that were currently re-designing, said Robert and Cortney Novogratz. Our fans really loved Sound Rise Flower Freaq, which was the limited edition speaker we designed for Mothers Day. When we saw such a positive response, we knew we had to offer something just as cool for dads.

First unveiled at CES 2014 and named a CES Best of Show finalist by iLounge, Sound Rise maintains the classic features found in old-school alarm clocks, but with much improved functionality and added features to enhance todays modern lifestyle.

Sound Rise streams award-winning audio via Bluetooth and is equipped with a universal USB power port, allowing users to charge their smartphones with ease. Sound Rise also offers dual alarms with weekday/weekend settings and gradually increasing volume, allowing users to wake up gently to the radio, music or alarm chime.

Sound Rises upright design reduces the size of its footprint, taking up less room on valuable nightstand real estate. Its also built with adjustable display settings that ranges from extra bright to total blackout for those who dont want any light coming from their alarm clock. Sound Rises display is also designed with a custom font that optimizes readability without filling a room with excess light. Sound Rise includes a special dedicated button to use either as a sleep timer to fall asleep to music for a set period of time or as a nap timer to nap for 15, 30, 60, 90 or 120-minutes.

REAL Certified Partners with Improvonia to Make REAL Food Purchasing Easy

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) March 25, 2015

Improvonia and the US Healthful Food Council (USHFC) announced a partnership today to simplify ordering between restaurants and suppliers. The partnership provides REAL Certified restaurants with the technology necessary to source from the best suppliers in the industry using Improvonias nationwide ordering platform. Both organizations are interested in ensuring that the restaurant industry can successfully addressand capitalize onthe growing demand for better, more nutritious food.

USHFC has been incredibly innovative in helping the restaurant industry make healthful and sustainable food more profitable, said Improvonia co-founder Konstantin Zvereff. A huge part of that effort has to be making sure that restaurants can find and order the right food, and Improvonia is uniquely positioned to do just that. Our app makes it easy to place and receive orders for everything a restaurant needs to do business, and that makes a big difference for chefs and suppliers grappling with shifting consumer demand. Plus, it is absolutely free for restaurants.

The partnership also enables restaurants looking for endorsed, REAL Certified products to search their suppliers on Improvonia for items matching their criteria, and suppliers will likewise be able to highlight their REAL endorsed items for sale. Restaurants looking to reach out to new suppliers will also be able to request REAL Certified catalogs from vendors in the system.

“REAL Certified has been successful in helping restaurants bring attention to their efforts to provide more nutritious and higher quality food to their customers, explains USHFCs CEO Lawrence Williams. Improvonia allows REAL Certified to extend across the supply chain by linking endorsed buyers and suppliers.

The Improvonia app and website allow restaurants to order all their supplies from all their suppliers in one click, and the platform already has over one thousand active accounts. After nearly doubling every month since launching in July of 2014, orders through the system grew at almost 300% month on month at the beginning of 2015. At the same time, USHFC is also growing rapidly, certifying restaurants and foodservice operations across the country, and branching out this year to recognize both the first national restaurant franchise and the first prepared meal company as REAL Certified.

As both organizations move forward in the industry, Zvereff is confident that this partnership will help make for a better food system, and better business all around: Adjusting to the demand for healthier food has not always been easy for chefs already overwhelmed with trying to order from multiple suppliers each night. With REAL Certified on Improvonia, restaurants and suppliers get both healthy menus and healthy bottom lines.

About Improvonia:

Improvonia is the free app that lets restaurants, hotels, and food service operators place all their orders to all their suppliers in one click. We build better relationships in the food industry by giving chefs and sales reps a simple communication tool that saves them time, and allows them to focus on what matters most to their businesses.

Haiti Energie, S.A./LLC Partners with Florida International University (FIU) to Solve Electricity Crisis in Haiti

Miami, FL (PRWEB) November 07, 2014

To solve the power crisis, Haiti Energie partnered with the FIUs Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. Under the partnership agreement, the FIU will provide the engineering design and plan for every project Haiti Energie takes on.

FIU has one of the greatest energy labs in the world, said Dr. Romain. The technical support provided by the graduate students at the FIUs Smart Grid Test Bed Research Lab will allow us to be even more efficient and reliable. It also enables us to build micro-scaled smart grid in different municipalities throughout Haiti, as well as provide solar systems for small and medium-size businesses, such as hotels, schools and hospitals.

Haiti Energie also partnered with a strong solar energy system provider that will help fund operations and provide batteries, wiring, racking and all the accoutrements necessary to transform a solar plan into a highly efficient and productive solar system. With this agreement in place, we are gaining a reliable business partner for hassle-free installations, said Dr. Romain.

The new partnership agreements strengthen Haiti Energies position as the leader in Haitis energy sector. Haiti Energie is the only company in the country poised to solve this overwhelming power crisis, said Dr. Romain. We are one of the private company in Haiti that is licensed by the government to sell electricity to private and government institutions, as well as commercial and residential customers.

The demand for solar power in Haiti is rapidly growing, as only about 20% of the islands population are estimated to have access to electricity. The capital city of Port-au-Prince has the most widespread electrical grid in the nation, but still only covers about 45% of the citys population.

At over $ 0.5/KWH, the cost of electricity in Haiti is over four times as expensive as it is throughout much of the United States. Currently, Haiti gets 60% of its electrical energy from imported diesel fuel, most of which comes from Venezuela. Residential and commercial buildings alike devote more than 40% of their budget to meeting this need. Solar generated electricity can dramatically cut these costs and reduce emissions.

Haiti is an ideal country to utilize solar power, as its skies are clear for 71% of daylight hours. Innovations in production and an increase of producers have resulted in decreasing costs for solar panels, inverters, mounting equipment and other solar products, making them an affordable solution to the power crisis in Haiti. Solar power prices have fallen off a cliff since the technology first got commercial exposure in the 1970s. Todays solar power systems are on average half of what they used to cost back in 2000, making solar an increasingly competitive energy choice.

Haiti Energie is committed to solving electricity crisis in Haiti with clean, affordable solar power. Founded just five years ago under the leadership of Dr. Ed D. Romain, its list of achievements is remarkable. Haiti Energie has installed over 3.5 Megawatts of solar-based electricity throughout Haiti. The company was at the forefront of designing and installing solar systems for the Mirebalais Hospital, the largest solar electric hospital in the world. Haiti Energie has also installed thousands of solar street lights, which has had a direct impact on lowering the crime rate in those areas.

Haiti Energie has worked with the government of Haiti to deregulate the power sector in the country. As a result, two regions in the country have been open to investors. For the first time in history, the Haitian government initiated a process of modernization of the public company, Electricity of Haiti, by launching an international call for tenders for the selection of strategic investors in South-East and North-West.

Haiti Energie carries a full line of solar-based equipment that provides electricity to both residential and commercials buildings. The company provides a wide array of services, from design to supply, installation and repair. Haiti Energie is incorporated both in Haiti and the United States.

About Haiti Energie, S.A.:

Haiti Energie, S.A. (http://www.haitienergie.net/) is a renewable energy company, bringing affordable solar power and access to electricity in Haiti. Through careful analysis, strong customer support, and cost-effective solutions, Haiti Energie provides a wide selection of products and services designed to dramatically lower energy costs and ensure access to electricity in Haitian communities.

PipelineFXs Qube! Behind John McAslan + Partners Arch-Viz Beauty Shots

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 18, 2014

As computer graphics have grown in prominence, rendering has become a double-edged sword for architectural designers. For firms like John McAslan + Partners conquering the time-intensive side of the process has lead them to solutions like PipelineFXs Qube!, a professional render farm manager that has brought efficiency and speed back to their real desire: captivating visuals that will win them business.

Now in its 25th year, Londons John McAslan + Partners is a highly awarded (over 90 international design awards and counting), highly creative architecture firm specializing in the type of projects most companies only dream about. With recent designs for the redeveloped Kings Cross Station, and no less than 16 projects on site in Qatar, McAslan is sitting on a system that gets projects built. Behind this pipeline, Qube! directs their images and fly-through animations through an automated system of prioritization filters and job routing.

We use it every day for global illumination and beauty passes, said Luigi Mussardo, Senior 3D Animator/Technical Artist at John McAslan + Partners. Because we need our workstations during business hours, we put Qube! to work after we leave and keep it on all night and weekend long. That power is a big reason why we dont have to render everything in the cloud or pay others to do our animation jobs.

McAslan + Partners saw Qube! as a chance to make sure work was always getting done, even when no one was watching. The process of waiting for an image to render steals time that we could be using to make improvements to our work, added Mussardo. So if you have a system that cant start a job again that has failed, or redirect it to a computer thats not being used, even more time is lost. We saw Qube! as a way to get some back.

The default render manager for 3ds Max made render farm management too expensive in both man hours and downtime. However, the process of trying to resolve some of its issues ended up a positive, as it led to a list of must-haves for what would become their solution – the top tier being stability, then artist-friendly and customizable.

Im a technically minded 3D artist, but certainly not trained in programming, continued Mussardo. With Qube!, I was able to set the system up and then use support whenever I was unsure about my next step. They respond so quickly, it rarely feels like there is a time zone difference.

After installation, crashes became a thing of the past at McAslan + Partners, and with Qube!s centralized approach the team has eliminated the need to re-send huge scene files to each worker every time there was a change. In the morning, when nodes are needed as workstations, Qube!s ability to lock out certain computers from the render farm helps artists easily decide how they want their farm to behave.

As part of their deal with PipelineFX, McAslan + Partners was also one of the first companies to utilize the new Qube! Designer licensing option, which drops worker prices for design firms running one render job per host to $ 100 a year. Created to give design teams a leg up, Qube! Designer is a fully functional version of Qube! intended for designers who primarily use Autodesk 3ds Max and/or Adobe After Effects. The former, along with Chaos Groups V-Ray, are big mainstays at McAslan + Partners, while the latter is being worked into their Qube! job types now.

Qube! has been solid and reliable from our very first test, said Mussardo. And the fact that a 3D artist can manage it by himself makes it even better. Its perfect for designers.

About Qube! and Smart Farming

Qube! is an intelligent, mature and highly scalable render management solution that can be quickly integrated into any production workflow, and is backed by world-class technical support. Smart Farming delivers intelligence to productions by providing business-critical insight into render pipelines, maximizing investment in rendering infrastructure and automating manual processes. Qube! works out of the box with all leading content creation applications and is truly cross-platform with all software components available on Windows

They can drive up to the hotel premises at leisure and park without having to book a room there. Then they can catch the shuttle that runs at frequent intervals 24×7 and reach the airport in peace. They can do all these and still keep within their travel budgets at all times.

We want our customers to feel the difference every time they deal with us, said Christine Cooper Marketing Coordinator, Greenbee Parking. That is why every partner we choose also needs to be on the same page with us when it comes to quality offers and customer service. We are confident that our partnership with the Airport Plaza Hotel will lead to a more enriching experience for all our customers using the Roanoke (ROA) airport without paying premium ROA airport parking rates.
