The Lucky Dog Gala, this year set for Thursday, March 14, 2019, at a private club in Pebble Beach, underwrites more than 50 percent of POMDR’s medical budget for the animals in its care for a year. Earlier this year, the event raised more than $250,000, and next year the goal is $300,000. Sponsorships to support the event and POMDR’s efforts to rescue dogs are now available.

“It is THE event of the year, it’s the big one,” said Carie Broecker, Executive Director of POMDR. “Sponsorships are a big reason why we were able to raise more than $250,000 at the last event, which provides for more than half of our medical budget each year.”

Cheryl Roy-Laber Uses Humor to Promote Anti-Bullying Message

More than 150 million Americans play video games, and 60 percent play video games on a daily basis with the average video gamer spending nearly 29 hours with a game console each month.

San Antonio, TX, USA, November 22, 2018 — More than 150 million Americans play video games, and 60 percent play video games on a daily basis with the average video gamer spending nearly 29 hours with a game console each month. By week, this accounts for three to five hours playing games on a device.

Author and accountant Cheryl Roy-Laber affirms that these games can often be addictive for kids. “It is hard for parents to get their children away from that, and it can be difficult for parents to get their children outdoors.”

Raising four sons and two step-daughters, video game use was something that Roy-Laber had to personally navigate in her own parenting.

Luckily, she comments that now, all of her children have gone on to have successful careers. But the fascination for video games ended up serving an unlikely end for Roy-Laber, who went on to write a fictional novel where one particular video game is mysteriously linked to the disappearance of many youth in the community.

Roy-Laber’s debut novel is entitled “Final Level: Animalized” and it also advances a strong message to combat bullying, the author explains.

“A lot of the story has to do with bullying and what happens when kids come together to help each other,” the author explains. “It takes a team to get out of crisis. We need more of that: people coming together and helping each other out.”

In the game, the characters are transformed into animals, which allowed the author to combine elements of their human and animal characteristics. This was also an opportunity for Roy-Laber to introduce humorous incidents to better convey her message.

Publisher Lisa M. Umina adds, “This is not only an entertaining story for readers of all ages but it also teaches important lessons about the importance of working as a team to confront difficult situations in life.”

For more information about Cheryl Roy-Laber visit . “Final Level: Animalized” is now available at Halo Publishing International, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Goodreads, and Books a Million in Paperback for $13.95and as an e-Book for $6.99.

Fulham Offers EliteControl Bluetooth Mesh LabKit for Fast, Easy Evaluation and Development of Wireless LED Controls

Self-contained EliteControl LabKit makes it easy to understand and test wireless Bluetooth mesh lighting control systems.

Hawthorne, CA, USA — Fulham Co., Inc., a leading supplier of lighting components and electronics for commercial and specialty applications, has just released a new Bluetooth Mesh LabKit to make it easy for OEMs to quickly test and evaluate wireless LED controllers for commercial lighting systems. The LabKit comes ready to use, complete with Fulham’s Bluetooth mesh mobile commissioning application.

The EliteControl Bluetooth Mesh LabKit is a self-contained, 120V unit. The LabKit includes a Fulham LED light engine, a Fulham SmartBridge Bluetooth controller, an EnOcean wireless Bluetooth switch, and an Apple iPad loaded with Fulham’s controller software. Using the LabKit, the user will have a fully operational Bluetooth mesh LED control system in minutes.

With the EliteControl LabKit you can configure and manage wireless control zones. The Fulham controller app allows users to set up a new lighting project that can encompass one or more floors of a building. Zones made up of a group of Bluetooth mesh devices such as fixtures, sensors or switches are used to define controlled spaces on a specific floor or even within rooms. Custom configuration scenarios can be created using the Fulham app and stored for office spaces, restrooms, etc., to simplify controller commissioning.

Once the zones are configured, the LabKit can be used to connect and control the lighting system. Luminaires can be added to each zone as needed and the LED engine will flash to show connectivity has been established. Once connected, the dimmer switch included in the LabKit can be used to test and control the zone lighting infrastructure.

“We wanted to offer a simple Bluetooth commissioning and evaluation kit to show customers how easy it is to set up a Bluetooth mesh control network,” said Alvaro Garcia, Senior Director, Product Management, for Fulham. “The EliteControl LabKit is ideal for understanding Bluetooth mesh for smaller projects, as well as for demonstrating and testing other Bluetooth mesh wireless LED devices.”

SIG qualified Bluetooth mesh is rapidly gaining momentum as the preferred approach for wireless LED lighting control. Bluetooth is an open standard so any qualified device will interoperable. The mesh architecture also is highly reliable with built-in failover and Bluetooth-enabled luminaires can be added or removed without disruption. Bluetooth mesh also is secure and highly scalable so it can connect thousands of nodes, and it provides a full stack communications platform so it can become the infrastructure for the Internet of Things (IoT).

Ciel & Terre Completes Two New Floating Solar Projects in California and Colorado with Others Under Construction and Planned in U.S.

New Floating Solar Projects for Walden and Salad Cosmo Use Manmade Ponds for Cost-Effective Solar Power Using Ciel & Terre Patented Floating Photovoltaic Technology.

Petaluma, CA, USA — Ciel & Terre USA (), innovators in floating solar power systems, today announced the completion of two new floating solar projects. A municipal floating solar project in Walden, Colorado, and a private floating solar project for Salad Cosmo in Dixon, California, are producing cost-effective solar power to offset greenhouse gas emissions. Other larger projects are under construction and planned in the U.S.

The Town of Walden, Colorado, faced a challenge with rising energy costs, and by partnering with Johnson Controls on a performance contract, which was supported by Colorado Energy Office, Department of Local Affairs, and GRID Alternatives, the town installed a 75kW floating solar system with Ciel & Terre technology capable of potentially completely powering the town’s drinking water facility in certain months. The $400,000 project included a town-wide energy audit and a $200,000 investment from the town. Estimates are that Walden will save $10,000 per year in energy costs.

“The floating solar array is a milestone for the Town of Walden and highlights the potential for Colorado’s overall energy efforts,” said Rowena Adams, Performance Infrastructure™ account executive at Johnson Controls. “It was a practical choice for Walden given the surrounding bodies of water and the town’s energy resiliency efforts at the Town Water Treatment Facility, as well as the desire to conserve water and minimize algae growth. At Johnson Controls, we are always looking for sustainable environments to work with and Walden has become a prime example of what can be achieved through strong partnerships.”

“We were excited to be a part of Colorado’s first floating solar installation,” said Jake Bobrow, Project Manager for GRID Alternatives. “Having installed many ground and roof mounted systems, we were also delighted with how easy Ciel & Terre’s system was to assemble and install.”

Salad Cosmo USA, a family-owned bean sprout producer in Dixon, California, has made an environment commitment that includes using recyclable packaging, composting waste products for use in the fields, and irrigating with waste water. As part of that commitment, Salad Cosmo wanted a sustainable energy solution for production and hired Sky Power Solar of San Ramon, California, to install a 600 kWp floating solar plant using Ciel & Terre’s floating photovoltaic technology.

“Placing a solar system on our farm land would have reduced the yield of our agricultural products that we need from that land. And in summer time the temperature of the panels does not rise on the water as much as it would on the land, and that improves the solar panel efficiency,” said Masahiro Nakada, CEO OF Salad Cosmo U.S.A Corp.

“The Ciel & Terre solution enabled Salad Cosmo to utilize the surface area of the pond, saving land for more productive uses. The system is easy to install and well-engineered,” said Bob Winn, President of Sky Power Solar. “We look forward to doing more of these projects.”

“These two installations demonstrate that floating solar has become a compelling energy solution for both municipal water treatment and private industry anywhere in the U.S.,” said Eva Pauly-Bowles, Representative Director for Ciel & Terre USA, Inc. “With demand for solar power continuing to rise and available real estate becoming more expensive, floating solar is the ideal solution for anyone with a manmade pond or body of water. It’s cost-effective, quick to install, easy to maintain, and offers a variety of environmental benefits. Floating solar is no longer an exotic niche in the US, but a rapidly growing sector of the solar market. Ciel & Terre USA has other larger floating solar projects under construction and planned across the countrysx5566盛兴彩票网.”

Deploying a floating solar array on manmade bodies of water improves energy production by keeping the solar system cooler. At the same time it reduces evaporation, controls algae growth, and reduces water movement to minimize bank erosion. Floating solar arrays also make optimal use of pond surfaces, providing clean solar energy without committing expensive real estate or requiring rooftop installations.

About Ciel & Terre
Established in 2006 as a renewable Independent Power Producer (IPP), Ciel & Terre has been fully devoted to floating solar PV since 2011. The French company pioneered Hydrelio®, the first specific and industrialized system to make solar panels float on water, with criteria such as cost-effectiveness, safety, longevity, resistance to winds and waves, simplicity, drinking water compliance, and optimized electrical yield.

Ciel & Terre has floating solar installations in Japan, Korea, Chinasx5566盛兴彩票网, UK, France, Brazil, Singapore, Malaysia, Italy, Taiwan as well as the United States. The company has its United States headquarters in Petaluma, California.

Dr. Sheldon Marks Authors Definitive Medical Textbook on Vasectomy Reversal

Springer Publishing Releases First Comprehensive Medical Guide Written by Leading Specialist in Male Reproductive Restoration.

Tucson, AZ, USA — Dr. Sheldon H.F. Marks, founder of the International Center for Vasectomy Reversal (ICVR), has just released a new medical textbook that promises to be the foremost medical reference for vasectomy reversal. Published by Springer, “Vasectomy Reversal: Manual of Vasovasostomy and Vasoepididymostomy” is the first medical textbook to provide a comprehensive, start-to-finish manual of vasectomy reversal for physicians interested in learning the procedure.

Dr. Marks has been performing vasectomy reversals for 35 years and his clinic, the International Center for Vasectomy Reversal (ICVR), reports up to a 99.5 percent success rate. The procedure has been successfully performed on thousands of men, no matter how much time has passed since their original vasectomy. Dr. Marks is one of the few urologists with a practice dedicated to vasectomy reversal, and in his new “Vasectomy Reversal” textbook he provides detailed instructions, including master’s techniques, tips and tricks, and protocols for handling various complications. Dr. Marks’ textbook is expected to become the definitive resource on vasectomy reversal and will be used by universities and teaching hospitals around the world.

More than 50 million men worldwide have had a vasectomy, and each year about 50,000 males in the U.S. undergo the procedure. However, life circumstances change and many men regret their decision when they lose a child, remarry, or simply realize they want to have their own children. While the vasectomy procedure itself is simple and routine, reversing the procedure requires microsurgery to reconnect the necessary tubes and there are few urologists in the countrysx5566盛兴彩票网 who can perform the procedure.

“A microsurgical vasectomy reversal remains the most cost-effective approach for any couple to have their own children following a vasectomy, offering unlimited attempts at natural conception. Drawing from decades of experience performing successful vasectomy reversals, I have captured what I have learned in this new medical textbook, offering step-by-step instruction, including detailed discussions of various treatment options before, during, and after the procedure. This is the same material I have been sharing with colleagues in courses and lectures, gathered in a single volume.”

Dr. Marks is a recognized expert in urological microsurgical procedures and has developed several courses on vasectomy reversal. At a recent international meeting of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) Dr. Marks led a roundtable on vas to epididymal bypass surgery, as well as a Special Masters symposium about advanced tips and techniques for vas-to-vas connections, vas-to-epididymal bypass and redo salvage reversal. He also is the author of the ASRM andrology certification module on vasectomy reversals and has taught a post-graduate course on vasectomy reversals for more than 12 years.

“Vasectomy Reversal: Manual of Vasovasostomy and Vasoepididymostomy” is available from Springer publishing () in either hardcopy or electronic book form. For more information, visit .

About Dr. Sheldon H.F. Marks
Dr. Sheldon Marks is an internationally recognized microsurgical specialist and has been performing vasectomy reversals since 1983. He is the founder of the International Center for Vasectomy Reversal, which has treated patients from all 50 states and more than 80 countries. Dr. Marks also is the inventor of the Marks Vas Cutting Forceps as well as a regular contributor to WebMD. He also is an Associate Clinical Professor in the Division of Urology at the University of Arizona College盛兴彩票网 of Medicine and Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Urology, Tufts University School of Medicine, New England Medical Center in Boston. Dr. Marks practices what he believes is the lost art of caring for the unique needs of each patient as part of the “dads again” family.
