Parcel Pending Unveils Refrigerated Electronic Lockers

(Newswire.net — June 16, 2017) Irvine, California –Parcel Pending, a leading provider of comprehensive package management solutions, announces the addition of refrigerated and outdoor lockers to its existing electronic lockers line. The state-of-the-art units aim to address the growing need for innovative solutions in multifamily properties where storage of residents’ perishable parcels and diminishing indoor space for such lockers prove to be a massive challenge.

Recent statistics show a significant surge in apartment living. This, coupled with the growth in online shopping, has property owners of multifamily communities scrambling for ways to manage resident’s packages. Today, property managers are struggling to de-clutter their indoor mailroom areas and preserve parcels that require specialized, refrigerated storage.

“When it comes to package delivery, we are in the problem-solving business,” says Parcel Pending CEO and Founder Lori Torres, highlighting the company’s two new innovative lockers. Both of these will be presented at the National Apartment Association Education Conference and Expo in Atlanta from June 21 to 24, 2017.

Parcel Pending refrigerated lockers are the first in the multifamily industry. These lockers can be set between 35 and 44 degrees Fahrenheit. This allows temperature-sensitive packages to maintain their freshness longer than they would on gel packs and dry ice. This is a breakthrough for property managers who need a place to keep their residents’ refrigerated goods intact and secured while waiting to be retrieved.

“Our new refrigerated lockers are the result of listening to our customers and seeing the need to store perishable goods,” Parcel Pending CEO and Founder Lori Torres emphasizes. “These revolutionary new lockers allow property managers to focus on the resident, and not spoiled food and melting packages.”

The outdoor lockers are made from weather-resistant materials that are ideal for properties with limited indoor spaces or lack of a 24/7 communal area for residents. Parcel Pending’s outdoor lockers are made from weather resistant materials, which allows packages to be stored safely until residents can pick them up. And, since these lockers are stored outside, residents can pick up their packages any time.

The first in the industry, the new line will definitely benefit a huge number of property owners, managers and residents.

Is it Possible to Retire Wealthy?

(Newswire.net — June 20, 2017) Syosset, New York —

The idea of retiring a wealthy person is certainly an attractive idea. But how realistic is it?

If you’re under 40, your most valuable asset is time. Retirement is decades away, and contributions to a 401(k) or other retirement savings plan will have many years to compound and grow. Even a modest contribution now will mean a lot more than a larger contribution when you’re in your 50s or later.

The truth is, you’ll never retire wealthy if you don’t start saving. Unfortunately, according to statistics, there are one in three Americans who have saved $0 for retirement. But interestingly enough, of those who are saving, a growing percentage are Millennials, especially in the 401k plan arena. 

If you started putting away $200 a month in a retirement account from age 22, within ten years you’d have savings of more than $37,000, assuming your investments grow 7% a year. In 20 years, you’d have more than $100,000, and by the time you reach age 67, your nest egg would be worth around $1 million.

Most financial planners will recommend investing 15% of your salary toward retirement. That may seem like an unrealistic goal for young people with other financial obligations. If you’re earning $30,000 a year, for example, that’s $375 a month. 

But with tax breaks associated with employer-sponsored retirement plans, plus a possible employer match, you can reduce your actual out-of-pocket contribution.  Even a smaller contribution will give you a serious head start on saving, so you’ll have a bigger stash that can grow for decades.

Some helpful tips:

Enroll in the 401(k)

Most major companies that offer 401(k) plans match a percentage of your contributions. Typically, these matches range from 25% to 100% of your contribution, up to 6% of your salary. 

Fund a Roth IRA

Many small employers don’t have the money or manpower to offer a 401(k) plan at all, let alone one with a company match. That means you have to create and manage your own retirement plan.

Pay off student loans 

Federal student loans have fixed and relatively low rates. Pay them off along with other debt you’ve accumulated. 

Resist cashing out 

When you leave a job, you have several options for your 401(k) plan. You can leave it with your former employer, roll it into an IRA, roll it into your new employer’s plan (if your employer permits such rollovers), or ask your former employer to cut you a check.

You may be tempted to choose the last option, but in most cases, that’s a bad idea. Your employer will withhold 20% of the amount withdrawn to cover income taxes. And because you’re under 55, you’ll also have to pay a 10% early-withdrawal penalty on the entire amount. 

Plus, you’re jettisoning any growth you’ve earned, which sends you back to square one when you start saving again.

With a little smarts and some sound financial strategies, you could retire with quite a large sum of money in your pocket.

Core Health Introduces New Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy

(Newswire.net — June 20, 2017) Darien, CONNECTICUT — Peripheral Neuropathy is becoming a bigger problem for many Americans. Unfortunately most medications fail to alleviate the symptoms. Studies show a 30-50% improvement of symptoms at best for medications commonly prescribed such as gabapenten or lyrica. Gabapenten is an anti-seizure medication that also treats nerve pain. Watch out because it lists impaired thinking and reaction time as side effects. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert. Seems like pretty serious side effects for minimal improvement. When you have unrelenting nerve pain any relief is welcome.

So what can you do for your self if you have peripheral neuropathy? Well for one thing you can watch your sugar intake. Diabetics have a much greater chance of developing neuropathy if their blood levels of A1C is lower then 7%. Healthy blood sugar levels can greatly reduce your chances of having this dreadfully painful disease. Another way to reduce your chances of having neuropathy is to restrict alcohol intake. Alcohol is converted sugar, and sugar can destroy the covering on the nerves. Sadly, chemotherapy tends to destroy the nerves allowing cancer patients to be at added risk of developing neuropathy. You can afford to limit sugar and alcohol intake but you cannot limit chemotherapy.

The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are such that you know when you have it. Numbness and tingling are relatively minor signs. Unrelenting pain in the feet and legs are the most common symptoms associated with neuropathy. You will know when you have it. There are some natural remedies for neuropathy that you should be aware of, especially because they have virtually no side effects. Capsaicin, made from super hot chili peppers is most often a topical cream applied to the painful areas. It is thought to reduce chronic neuropathic pain by making nerves insensitive to pain messages. This is surely worth a try. A study done at Wayne State University School of Medicine showed that Acetyl-l-Carnitine improves pain, nerve regeneration, and vibratory perception in patients with chronic diabetic neuropathy. The study found that 1000mg daily was most effective. L- Carnitine has no side effects and is water soluble. Dana Farber Cancer Institute recommends a dose of 100mg B6, and Vitamin B12 at 1000 mcg may to help with symptoms of neuropathy. These are all potentially helpful ways to deal with peripheral neuropathy.

We at Core Health have found that applying low level laser therapy to the affected areas of pain can also help greatly reduce the symptoms of neuropathy. The mechanism is one where the laser stimulates production of ATP at the mitochondrial level. Increased ATP allows for greater energy which in turn helps with regeneration of the myelin sheath. The demyelinization is believed to be the core issue causing neuropathy. The presence of chemotaxic agents and high levels of glucose cause demyelinization of peripheral nerves. We feel we may be able to help especially when medication fails to produce tangible results.

Alec Hoke on Healthcare in Retirement Planning

(Newswire.net — June 16, 2017) Fayetteville, New York — Healthcare costs are one of the largest expenses retirees may face after their careers are over. Despite the advice of retirement planning professionals across the country, many people overlook healthcare expenses when funding retirement accounts. Alec Hoke, a note investment adviser and financial professional with over two decades in the field, knows that retirees often put too much faith into government programs. “Many people planning for their retirements expect programs like Medicare to cover health expenses,” says Alec. “The truth is, Medicare and similar programs are insufficient to cover the expenses most retirees will face.” To learn more about Alec’s experience in the retirement planning field, visit https://www.linkedin.com/in/alec-hoke-59915996.

Part of the problem is that life expectancies have risen over the past thirty years. Retirees will live longer, resulting in longer periods of time when healthcare expenses will need to be covered. Medicare benefits can only go so far; in fact, according to several studies, it is estimated that Medicare will only cover about half of expected medical expenses over a retiree’s lifetime. Average healthcare costs for someone retiring at age 65 are estimated at $245,000. Retired couples may need as much as $10,000 to $12,000 in additional coverage each year to account for shortfalls not covered by Medicare. Although there are companies selling so-called “Medigap” coverage, most retirement planning professionals prefer variable annuities to meet the challenges of healthcare expenses. Annuities provide lifetime income and are part of an overall retirement strategy that includes mutual funds, stocks and bonds, real assets, and other savings accounts. “Variable annuities offer great tax advantages for retirees as well as helping account holders weather the potential volatility of traditional investment products,” says Alec, who serves as the Principal at Beacon Wealth Strategies, LLC in New York. “Financial professionals can help those planning for retirement to develop a set of products that work for future expenses like medical care as well as for other retirement goals like travel and leisure activities.”

Alec Hoke has been helping both individuals and business clients make smart investments for many years. He has worked as an investment adviser, assisting clients with reaching their long-term investment goals. One of his many financial specialties is developing unique investment strategies that optimize retirement income by taking advantage of tax shelters and overcoming plan limits.

The Blood Diamond of Music Wood Rosewood Dalbergia spp.

(Newswire.net — June 20, 2017) Bend, Oregon — Understanding the Importance of the Lacey Act Amendments of 2008 and the inclusion of Dalbergia spp. in Appendix II of CITES.

Wherever Mother Nature has given a place and its people a natural resource that is coveted by humankind, incentives for over-exploitation and corruption have unfortunately often followed. Petroleum, diamonds, silver, gold, and sandalwood are well-known examples. The rich red timber of tropical rosewood species (Dalbergia spp.) has joined this club of coveted materials.

It all begins with demand: Like precious gems and metals, rosewood is a material that customers are willing to pay disproportionate amounts of money for, relative to the local economy in the places that it grows. If those places suffer from weak governance, low observance of the rule of law, economic inequality and poverty, and widespread corruption, the potential for overexploitation, conflict and corruption rapidly becomes a reality. Unfortunately, those socio-economic and political conditions are common in the places where rosewood grows and is logged, from the forest frontiers of the Amazon basin, Central America, the hinterlands of West and Central Africa, the Mekong River basin, and on the island of Madagascar, sometimes known as “the Eighth Continent” for its unique ecological biodiversity.

All of these conditions have made rosewood so vulnerable to over-exploitation that combined, over the past two decades, with rapid expansion of globalized trade in natural resources and the dizzying economic rise of China’s middle class, a “perfect storm” is threatening the fate of rosewood forests worldwide.

This was the challenge that faced the 17th meeting of the “Conference of the Parties” to the “Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species” – CITES COP-17 for short – when 183 countries that are members of the CITES treaty, gathered at their triennial meeting last Fall in Johannesburg, South Africa. Despite a historical reluctance of governments to extend CITES regulatory controls to commercial timber species, COP-17 looked at the snowballing rosewood crisis and took the unprecedented step of unanimously listing the entire genus Dalbergia (which includes all true rosewoods). CITES’s stock in trade since it came in to being in the 1970s has been animals on the verge of extinction, like African elephants, rhinos, and tigers.

Skyrocketing demand for all rosewood – and rosewood-like – timber for replicas of imperial Chinese furniture (known as hongmu) is what drove CITES to act: an overwhelming majority of rosewood is logged for the hongmu trade in China. But some species of rosewood are also key tonewoods for the building of fine guitars and other musical instruments, and the acoustic guitar industry is now grappling with the fallout from the CITES rosewood listings.

Rosewood is uniquely beautiful. It’s magnificent coloration and grain character are stunning in exotic furniture; the tonal characteristics of some species make them the most coveted of all acoustic tonewoods. It is the “Blood Music Wood”!

Brazilian rosewood tonewood (Dalbergia nigra) was heavily threatened over 60 years ago. The Brazilian government responded, imposing restrictions in the late 1960s’ on the export of rosewood trees. After CITES came into being, Brazilian rosewood was listed in CITES “Appendix I” (international trade totally prohibited) in 1992. The 2008 amendments to the U.S. Lacey Act, which extended criminal sanctions for the import of illegal wild animal species to timber species, added teeth to enforcement in the United States. As a result, there is thought to be very little illegal trade in Brazilian rosewood, or of instruments made from that highly-coveted species. The “Guitar Passport” issued by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, pursuant to the CITES listing of timber species used in guitars, facilitates transport and sale of instruments accompanied by appropriate paperwork. (In the base of Brazilian rosewood, these papers must establish ownership of the specimen in question prior to the CITES listing of the species in 1992.)

Madagascar rosewood (Dalbergia spp. endemic to Madagascar, including D. baronii, D. greveana, D. madagascariensis, and D. monticola) is a different story. Madagascar has suffered great economic and political turmoil for decades, since gaining independence from France in 1960, and a coup in 2009. All of that combined with the booming demand for rosewood coming from China set the stage for mass pillage of rosewood across the island’s biologically unique jungles. Government officials, from municipalities up to the President’s office, were deeply involved in the rosewood “gold rush” of those years, and many continue to be involved to this day. CITES listed the entire Madagascar genus Dalbergia in 2013 and effectively prohibited international trade (a zero quota remains in place today), but the only thing that slowed down the assault on Madagascar’s rosewood forests was the virtual extirpation (local extinction) of these beautiful trees in every accessible location across the island.

This is not surprising in a poor country with a famously weak and corrupt governance structure: the Chinese furniture industry is willing to pay tens of thousands of dollars for one log, that was stolen from the remote jungle and delivered to a collection site for less than $50. As the bribes are paid and the logs are smuggled into containers, the profits multiply at every stage of custody. With an average gross national income (GNI) per capita of just $1.18 a day in 2012 (among the world’s lowest) and few sources of cash income in rural areas, local people have no choice but to work for the loggers. Do not make the mistake of believing that these local loggers are “profiting”, however, from the back-breaking work of cutting and hauling the heavy rosewood logs from the jungle. They are paid only a pittance of a wage, and their forests are left depleted of their most valuable trees once the traders’ ships vanish across the Indian Ocean. Not even the remote and iconic Masoala National Park has provided safe haven – the Park’s eastern flank is riddled with logging trails, and mature rosewood trees are virtually impossible to find there. Some loggers have even returned to dig up stumps remaining from the rosewood rush of 2009-2011.

The nations of the Mekong river basin in Southeast Asia, bordering China, have also found the economic carrot just too much to resist. The most valuable rosewood species have been hunted to virtual extinction in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Burma’s forests – the last remaining large forest block in mainland Southeast Asia – is increasingly under assault. For several years, an actual shooting war has raged in Thailand’s Khao Yai National Park between logging gangs who cross the border from Cambodia and Thai park and military authorities.

One nation stands tall on the protection and management of its rosewood resource: India. At a recently attended auction of rosewood logs, managed by the Indian Forest Service, the logs were laid out on a huge field. Each log was evaluated and labeled for its value. Potential buyers were invited to inspect the logs and determine if they would like to place a bid above the minimum price established by the government. No private sales of Indian rosewood are allowed in India. The tonewood company was delighted to acquire 10 promising logs. The wood was magnificent.

 

We thus have two successful examples of economic, governmental, private enterprise collaboration supporting commerce while protecting the rosewood forests and providing an economic return to the people that live among the forests – Brazil and India. With all of the corruption surrounding much the world’s remaining rosewood-bearing forests, the challenge of enforcement has proven daunting. The 2016 CITES listing provides some impetus for more effective action, but the challenges are great.

Since it is very difficult to distinguish among various Dalbergia species (once removed from their harvest location), the CITES COP determined that all Dalbergia must be listed in Appendix II. Thankfully, they extended the 10 KG amendment for musical instruments, which removes consumers from the burdens of the new regulations (with the exception of Brazilian rosewood). Instrument owners can freely travel with their individual instruments throughout the world without permits. It is commercial activity which is regulated.

The CITES rosewood listings came into force three months after the COP’s decisions – on January 2, 2017. While this rapid entry into enforcement was in accordance with CITES rules, the sweeping nature of the rosewood listings caught both governments and industry by surprise. Efforts by both businesses and regulatory agencies to adjust and accommodate are ongoing, with many painful transitional efforts here in the United States and throughout the world. Both government agencies and businesses found themselves with the obligation of monitoring, managing and executing the new regulations before procedures were understood or, in some cases, formulated.

Musical instrument companies in the United States were trapped with products already in production that would not ship prior to the January 2, 2017 deadline. Standards for establishing Master Files of existing “Pre-Convention” inventory, and new Master Files for “Post-Convention” material had to be worked out. Production was affected, shipments were delayed and U.S. Customs was caught in the middle of an awkward transition. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been tied up in disrupted commerce and bureaucratic chaos.

Breedlove Guitars has lost over $1 million in first quarter sales due to CITES-related backorders, which of course, impeded re-orders during the second quarter. It has been a challenging first half of 2017 as businesses and government regulatory agencies struggle to get workable, viable, processes in place to support the efficient transactions for importing and exporting products containing Dalbergia.

It is getting better, though. Over the next several months, we will have all adapted and learned how to work together to make these new regulations work.

Could the process have been handled better? Absolutely. Three months was unrealistic for execution and enforcement of such a sweeping CITES listing affecting businesses and supply chains in so many countries. It created unnecessary burdens on both governments and businesses.

Was the CITES Appendix II listing necessary? Absolutely. Without taking this bold action there would be no change in the devastation of the world’s rosewood species and the forests in which they grow. Too many governments have turned a blind eye, since there is so much money to be made smuggling rosewood into China. The guitar industry is not a root cause of the global rosewood crisis, but it is going to have to figure out how to live with the new rules that were necessitated by that crisis.

The CITES listing is already having a significant impact. Guitar companies are rapidly changing components on their instruments to limit the use of Dalbergia. This is adding momentum to implementation of the 2008 Lacey Act Timber Amendments, and analogous provisions passed by Australia and the European Union in 2012 and 2013 respectively. The outcome, we can all hope, will be to level the playing field so that all companies throughout the world sourcing wood will be held accountable for the legality of its harvest.

Today, those of us in the guitar supply chain feel the burdens of change. It is costing us money. But in the long run, it will be a monument to rainforest sustainability and the positive role we all played in making it happen – willingly or otherwise.

How to Create the Perfect Ambience in Your Home

(Newswire.net — June 9, 2017) — A home is a comfort zone and should be where we feel most comfortable. The home shapes our attitude to life, goals, decisions, and self-esteem. On that account, it is a vital part of our existence.

Also, the ever-buzzing world of today comes with hectic stress levels that make it difficult to find time for relaxation and recreation.  Indecision, moodiness, and lack of motivation are just a few of the negative effects such stressed regimen has on us.

Nonetheless, we do have to return to our homes and families after a hard day’s work and this serves as a form of stress inhibitor which breathes into us a new lease of life every other day.

Consequently, the home remains one of the few places left to give us a continual refreshing experience and the aura and atmosphere that are essential to our physical and psychological well-being. Therefore, it is upon us to make our home a tranquil and serene environment.

But how do we achieve that? Outlined below are 5 simple steps to creating the perfect ambience in and around your home.

1. Use a humidifier

You might wonder what a humidifier has got to do with a serene atmosphere and why it is the first point of call. It’s quite simple. Air is the basic unit of life without which nothing would exist. For humans, air is everything. We breathe air, listen to sounds with the help of air, our skins thrive with air, and we dissipate heat with air and much more.

The air in the home might become too dry and coarse (especially during cold weather conditions) thereby making you to feel uncomfortable. A humidifier increases the humidity (moisture) in the air when such happens. It balances the atmospheric conditions in the home to give a perfect feel.

2. ‘Lighten up’

The type and layer of lighting can determine the feel of the home. Too little light could make everything seem dull and uninspiring and too much could make a cluster. The balance of lighting will create the perfect ambience for any moment, day or season.

Natural white lighting, such as light through doors and windows has an appealing effect on our moods and emotions – the reason gardens are always a good relaxation spot. Try designing your home to give room for as much natural light as possible.

3. ‘Colour up’

Just like light, colour has psycho-emotional impacts on humans. Warm colours, such as yellow and orange, can create emotions ranging from comfort to warmth, while cool colours such as green, blue and purple are synonymous with peace, calmness, and creativity. It is important to pay attention to what colours spark what feelings in you and paint your home accordingly.

4. Go Natural

As humans, we are intrinsically wired to get blown away by the natural beauty that surrounds us. The awe that accompanies natural landscapes and designs can never be replicated perfectly.

Some positive effects of nature include improved mood, reduced stress, and improved cognitive performance. Fill your lawns and garden with lush green natural grass, plant trees, have an aquarium with fishes and decorate your home with natural flowers to create a feeling of naturalness.

5. Use good fragrance

The smell of your home can be a turn-on or turn-off. Different aromas have different effects on our psyche which impacts our wellbeing positively. Vanilla scent can liven up your mood and citrus could trigger an energetic feeling.

Generally, good scents lift the spirit and should be an integral part of every home. Figure out what aroma(s) soothe you and a delightful experience awaits you after every workday.

Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) Market to Reach US$ 461M in 2017

(Newswire.net — June 6, 2017) New York, NY —  The key trends impacting the distributed acoustic sensing market include,

  • Growing adoption of distributed acoustic sensing in non- oil and gas verticals. Owing to various developments and improvisations, digital acoustic sensing is being increasingly deployed in perimeter intrusion detection.
  • Storage of information collected through distributed acoustic sensing remains a key challenge. It is estimated that during a typical hydraulic fracturing monitoring operation, a DAS system can generate data up to 5 TB per day. Storing such large volumes of data has been a longstanding challenge for companies, with most vendors using a patchwork of software solutions to extract data from DAS.
The key factors driving the global acoustic sensing market include,
  • Increasing global energy demand: According to International Energy Agency, global energy demand will increase by 50% by 2030-end. Distributed acoustic sensing has emerged as a feasible cost-effective method to optimize energy production and transfer.
  • Distributed acoustic sensors are capable of withstanding harsh environment and temperature conditions, owing to which their adoption is steadily gaining traction, especially in the petroleum sector.
  • Increasing adoption of distributed acoustic sensing in the railway’s sector is contributing to the growth of the market. Distributed acoustic sensors are being used to protect track-side assets, including location cabinets and Relocatable Equipment Buildings (REB).

Although PMR maintains a positive outlook on the global distributed acoustic sensing market, few challenges can impede the growth of the market. Depreciating oil prices and the large volume of data generated by distributed acoustic sensing are currently the key impediments to growth.
