— Amber Skjelset

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, September 20, 2018 / — Clearwater, Florida – On Saturday September 29th The Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization will host its monthly tour of the Fort Harrison introducing local residents to the History of the Historic Fort Harrison and an opportunity to learn of the Church of Scientology’s support of local non-profits through its event venues.
The tour will start at the Fort Harrison lobby at 1:30pm. Attendees will have the opportunity to see where Scientologists from all over the world stay while participating in Scientology religious ervices, the tea lounge with its array of 70 teas from all over the world, board rooms, and the Hibiscus Restaurant which displays a recognition from the Chaine des Rotisseurs, the oldest food and wine society in the world.
“The Fort Harrison completed construction in late 1926 and has served the community ever since, said Amber Skjelset, host for the tour. “The original builder, Ed Haley wanted a show place for Clearwater and he definitely created that.”
The Fort Harrison was once used to accommodate the World War II troupes and the Philadelphia Phillies for spring training. Other notable guests who’ve stayed at the Fort Harrison include the Rolling Stones who had an appearance at the Jack Russell stadium in 1965 which was cut short due to “hundreds of teen-agers who tried to get to the ‘rock men.’” It was at this time and place where Mick Jagger and Keith Richards penned the chart topping song, (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction.
After the tour, those who want to know more about the Church’s Spiritual Cathedral across the street – the Flag Building can visit the Scientology Information Center and watch “Inside Scientology: Flag,” an episode from the Scientology TV Network. The 1 hour presentation provides a visual tour of the building and an intimate look at the history and significance of the Church of Scientology’s spiritual headquarters. Complimentary tea and scones will be served.
To attend this event or for more information about Church-sponsored community events please contact Amber Skjelset, Manager of the Scientology Information Center at (727) 467-6966 or email

The Fort Harrison serves at the international religious retreat for the Church of Scientology. With more than 11,000 Scientology Churches, Missions and groups spanning six continents, Scientologists come to Clearwater from all over the world for religious training and ministerial services. The Fort Harrison is made available to community groups and charities for their special events and fundraisers. Scientology is an applied religious philosophy based on the work of L. Ron Hubbard.

National Black Chamber of Commerce Aspires to Transform Minority and Low-Income Communities

Entrepreneurial Hubs of Economic Innovation with Job Training, Access to 5G Technology and Low-Income Housing

This successful prototype will revolutionize economic development in these distressed areas.”

— Harry C. Alford, president and CEO

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, September 20, 2018 / — The National Black Chamber of Commerce (NBCC) is launching a prototype project that will transform minority, low-income and rural communities from forgotten places into entrepreneurial hubs of economic innovation. Our goal is to create communities with access to 5G technology, integrated into low-income housing, job training and access to telemedicine and social services. It will all be done with private sector resources.

"This successful prototype will revolutionize economic development in these distressed areas," says Harry C. Alford, president and CEO. We have identified the city, we have political and church support. We have private sector developers who will bid on the project.

To start this trans-formative effort NBCC needs your financial support to begin the on-the-ground planning work to convert the idea into a clear, workable plan that can be implemented. We need to raise $25,000 in the next month to develop the plan. That is only $25 from a hundred interested donors or $50 from five-hundred, or $100 from 250 donors. If you make a small donation, we will have the resources to develop this plan.

This is a small request to start a monumental trans-formative project that when successful, will transform minority and low-income communities across the nation.

Donations by check can be made to National Black Chamber of Commerce, 4400 Jennifer St, Suite 331, Washington, DC 20015. To donate by credit card click here. The NBCC is a 501©3 nonprofit corporation.

Without access to high-speed broadband, minority and low-income communities will be permanently stuck in a wasteland which has few jobs, few skills, few employers and little access to education. Recent studies indicate that in the next decade over 50% of the U.S. working population will work as “freelancers”. To address the future these minority, low-income and rural communities need to develop a path that helps them create jobs in their communities.

The foundation of the prototype is to combine technology (cell towers and small cell 5G technology) and low-income housing (built with federal low-income housing tax credits) in a community to provide the residents with access to the world. The technology without people and workers is useless. Housing without technology is just another housing project or Digital Desert. It is the combination that provides a future to the community.

These minority and low-income communities do not have the money to build their own telecommunications infrastructure or housing. The federal government has talked about funding rural broadband for years but with little success. Now a bipartisan group of Senators is actively promoting the AIRWAVES Act to fund 5G technology in low-income and rural areas with revenues from the auctions that sell spectrum, the fruits of those very needed efforts are most likely years in the future. Minority and rural communities certainly do not have the time to wait for government funding. We must see if the private sector can do it now.

When the prototype project is successful, the NBCC will work with communities across the country that want to overcome impediments to success. Armed with an honest assessment of what they want to become NBCC will work with them to persuade those with resources to invest in their entrepreneurial vision. Not possible? Well, every major social change starts with a different vision of the future.

It’s now time to apply creative thinking to transforming these forgotten people and communities into entrepreneurial hubs. Please make your contribution today. For more information email

Vermont Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Person in Vermont With Recently Diagnosed Mesothelioma or Their Family To Call Them for Direct Access to The Nation's Top Attorneys for the Best Client Compensation

We do not want to see one person in Vermont with mesothelioma to get shortchanged on compensation because they aimed low in retaining the services of a law firm.”

— Vermont Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, September 20, 2018 / — The Vermont Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “We are urging a person in Vermont who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma or their family members to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure they get the most honest advice about how to get the best possible financial settlement. We do not want to see one person in Vermont with mesothelioma to get shortchanged on compensation because they aimed low in retaining the services of a law firm. If you want the very best possible mesothelioma financial compensation settlement you will need to retain the services of the nation’s most experienced and capable mesothelioma lawyers and we would like to make some suggestions.

“The mesothelioma attorneys we suggest have well over a decade of producing the best possible mesothelioma compensation results in New England and they make house calls. In other words, the mesothelioma attorneys we suggest go to visit the diagnosed person in their home. The in-home visit is vital because it allows the lawyers we suggest a face to face conversation with the person with mesothelioma about how and or where they were exposed to asbestos. The reason this information is so vital is that this specific information about asbestos exposure becomes the basis for a mesothelioma financial compensation claim for this rare cancer as we would like to discuss at 800-714-0303.” http://Vermont.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

If the Vermont Mesothelioma Victims Center had some vital compensation tips for a person who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Vermont they would be:

* "Try to list as many places where you were exposed to asbestos along with dates and times. The more specific the information the better. As an example-'as a mechanic I frequently replaced auto and truck brakes on domestically made vehicles from January 1969 until April of 1975. During this same time, I also replaced auto and truck clutches.'
* "Do you know the names or whereabouts of coworkers who may have witnessed your exposure to asbestos? Knowing how you were exposed to asbestos and the names of people who witnessed your exposure is vital information the attorneys we suggest will need if you want to receive the very best possible financial compensation for this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure as we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303." http://Vermont.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Vermont Mesothelioma Victims Center's initiative is available to people with mesothelioma in Burlington, South Burlington, Rutland, Barre, Montpelier or anywhere in Vermont. http://Vermont.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

For the best possible treatment options in Vermont we strongly recommend the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital.
* University of Vermont Medical Canter:

High risk occupations for asbestos exposure in Vermont include the US Navy, asbestos miners, power plant workers, public utility workers, paper mill workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, machinists, mechanics and construction workers.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is a national advocate 100% focused in on doing everything possible to ensure a person with mesothelioma in Vermont or any other state receives the very best possible financial compensation settlement. The group offers on the spot access to some of the nation’s most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys because to receive the very best possible financial compensation a diagnosed person must be represented by the most capable mesothelioma lawyers in the United States as they would like to discuss at 800-714-0303. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

La nouvelle MyColisBox®, la boite à colis connectée et sécurisée imaginée par Decayeux sera de dimension sociétale

Mycolisbox couplée avec l’application mobile va permettre à l’environnement proche du bâtiment d’informer les locataires, les habitants de la vie du quartier et créer des liens sociaux entre habitants”

— Stephane Decayeux

PARIS, FRANCE, September 20, 2018 / — La nouvelle MyColisBox®, la boite à colis connectée et sécurisée imaginée par Decayeux sera de dimension sociétale : avec une option caissons isothermes, des services de conciergerie, de la communication entre locataire, du troc, de l’échange, du partage au niveau de la résidence mais aussi dans le quartier.

Leader européen sur le marché des boîtes aux lettres, Decayeux, entreprise familiale créée en 1872, présentera au CES Unveiled de Paris le 3 octobre 2018 sa nouvelle génération de MyColisBox®, sa boîte à colis connectée qui sera équipée d’un nouveau système d’information et d’une application mobile qui permettra la livraison de courrier et de colis à domicile ainsi que l’accès a de nombreux services.

Le Groupe Decayeux, codirigée par Antoine & Stéphane Decayeux, issus de la 6ème génération, ont révolutionné leur métier et leur marque à travers l’intégration des technologies les plus récentes, tout en s’appuyant sur la tradition, le savoir-faire industriel et séculaire du Groupe.

Avec cette nouvelle génération, l’enjeu pour l’entreprise est double : garantir le meilleur produit et le meilleur service de livraison de colis et générer plus de contacts et de communication entre ses futurs clients.

Afin de favoriser le lien social entre les habitants ou des collaborateurs d’un même immeuble, l’entreprise souhaite ajouter deux produits supplémentaires :
1. Un nouvel écran d’affichage intégré dans MyColisBox qui sera le reflet de l’application mobile accessible par tous.

2. Une application mobile qui permet non seulement d'interagir avec Mycolisbox, mais qui permet également de mieux communiquer entre voisins, promoteurs et syndics, et commerces de proximité. L’application mise à disposition des utilisateurs se décompose en 4 parties :
• Tableau de bord : affichage d’informations clés : bon plan, événements internes ou externes, signalements… ;
• MyColisBox : réception de colis ou possibilité d’échanger un produit avec son voisin ;
• Ma Résidence : toutes les informations utiles concernant la résidence avec la possibilité de signaler en temps réel tout problème au syndic ou au promoteur ;
• Messagerie : possibilité de communiquer en one-to-one avec un membre de l’immeuble ou avec le syndic ; Dans une version future, il sera possible de voir ce que propose les commerces de proximité, ouvrir MyColisBox directement depuis l’application…

Captures d’écrans disponibles ici :

3. Nouvelle fonctionnalités, basée sur les déploiements de la première génération et le retour client sur la valeur d’usage, de Mycolisbox, cette dernière évolue en ajoutant à ses fonctionnalités la possibilité d’avoir un ou des caissons isothermes. Ces caissons peuvent devenir réfrigéré pour les livraisons des denrées alimentaires mais aussi isotherme (car plus économique et moins coûteux en termes d’entretien). Les tailles sont modulables aux besoins des utilisateurs (usage alimentaire ou classique) personnalisable afin de se fondre dans l’univers et le lieu de mise en œuvre du produit.

« Maintenant pourvue d’un tableau digital interactif tactile, tout en gardant à l’esprit la fiabilité et la sécurité de MyColisBox. Nous avons rendu la Mycolisbox encore plus interopérable avec l’ensemble de l’univers à proximité du hall d’entrée » explique Antoine Decayeux, « Ce tableau permet d’ouvrir de nouvelles fonctionnalités autour du bloc de boîtes aux lettres. Permettre aux syndics, aux gérants d’Immeuble ou de bureau de pousser des informations directement sans se déplacer. (Réunion de copro, nettoyage, dératisation…) »

« Mycolisbox couplée avec l’application mobile va permettre à l’environnement proche du bâtiment d’informer les locataires, les habitants de la vie du quartier (concert, réunion des voisins…) Le hall est un lieu de partage. Le tableau permet de développer les liens sociaux entre habitants » continue Stephane Decayeux « Mycolisbox devient un nouvel outil de promotion pour les commerçants qui peuvent envoyer sur ce tableau connecté envoyé des offres commerciales sur ce tableau. C’est aussi une source de revenus supplémentaires pour les syndics et gérants d’immeuble. »

Nous vous attendons le 3 octobre prochain au CES Unveiled pour découvrir notre nouvelle génération MyColisBox.

Decayeux, entreprise familiale créée en 1872, est spécialisée dans la fabrication de boîtes aux lettres et de solutions dédiées à la distribution postale et à la sécurité de la maison. Faisant de l’innovation le moteur de son activité, le Groupe est aujourd’hui une puissance économique régionale, nationale et fortement tournée vers l’international, grâce à cinq sociétés en France et six filiales à l’étranger.

Healthcare Must Change: New Intermountain Transformation Center to Lead Global Advance in Healthcare Delivery

New Intermountain Transformation Center

I'm making this gift because Intermountain Healthcare has expertise of great importance to the world.”

— Kem C. Gardner

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, September 19, 2018 / — Intermountain Healthcare has opened its 120,000 square-foot Kem C. Gardner Intermountain Transformation Center. It is the home for multiple institutes and programs that are transforming the way medical care is provided in the U.S. and globally to achieve the highest clinical quality at the lowest sustainable cost.

Intermountain’s Clinical Program leadership teams of scientists and doctors will work at the new facility to research, innovate, and develop best practices to enhance care around the world. With more than 1,500 active research studies in more than 20 clinical areas, the Transformation Center is equipped to make medical discoveries that improve care and save lives.

Here’s a look at how the new facility will help Intermountain clinicians improve healthcare both in the U.S. and abroad:

• Innovation. Advancements in healthcare being developed at Intermountain will continue forward in the new facility, including creating tools to better meet the needs of caregivers and patients. For example, with the Innovation Lab at the Transformation Center, 3D technology is being used to print copies of patient organs. This allows clinicians to gain additional insight into performing life-changing surgeries that weren’t previously possible.

• Economic Benefit for Utah. This center will be a boon to the Utah economy with the many health professionals from around the U.S. and the world that will come to the Salt Lake City-area to receive training. For example, the internationally renowned Intermountain Healthcare Delivery Institute, which has relocated to the Transformation Center, has already attracted more than 5,000 doctors, nurses, and others attend its courses.

• Leadership Development. A new offering from The Institute for Healthcare Leadership, led by Intermountain president emeritus Charles Sorenson, MD, will offer leadership training courses for medical professionals. The Institute includes a unique simulation center where participants practice leadership scenarios using simulation. The Institute will focus on improving leaders’ communication, teamwork, and how to engage their teams.

• Collaboration with top healthcare leaders. Healthcare experts from all over the world are invited to the center to collaborate and share ideas to improve healthcare for patients worldwide.

• Partnerships. The Center has partnered with CHIME Innovation to collaborate with innovative healthcare IT leaders from across the globe.

“We are stewards of Intermountain’s long tradition of innovation, and this Transformation Center will be a hotbed, locally, regionally, nationally, and globally as we seek to advance that tradition,” said Marc Harrison, MD, Intermountain Healthcare president and CEO, at a dedication ceremony.

The Transformation Center is located on the campus of Intermountain Medical Center in Murray, Utah, and is named after Kem C. Gardner, who served on Intermountain boards for 36 years and was Chair of the Intermountain Board of Trustees from 2007-2012. He currently chairs the Intermountain Foundation Board.

Mr. Gardner donated $20 million toward the construction of the Transformation Center.

"I'm making this gift because Intermountain Healthcare has expertise of great importance to the world," Gardner said. "The programs housed in the Transformation Center will do so much to improve the health and care available to people in Utah and around the world.”

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 23 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit

PK Safety Launch Revolutionary Stop ‘N’ Go Safety Gloves

Stop 'N' Go Safety Glove

YSTRAD MYNACH, COUNTY (OPTIONAL), UNITED KINGDOM, September 19, 2018 / — PPE Supplier PK Safety are set to dramatically reduce reversing incidents and accidents in the waste collection and transfer sectors with the launch of their Stop’N’Go range of handling gloves this month. Designed for use by banksmen and reversing assistants, the gloves are coloured red and green on the palm and back of the hand respectively to align with the hand signals suggested by the HSE for communicating with reversing vehicles. The range has been designed with the collaboration of SUEZ R&R Ltd and has been created with the aim of providing a simple and convenient solution to improving reversing operations both on-site and whilst undertaking collection rounds.

PK Safety are a supplier of protective equipment and workwear to a wide range of local authorities, waste collectors and waste processors. They pride themselves on working closely with their clients to provide innovative solutions to everyday safety and operational issues and irritations. Bevan Wells (Director of PK Safety) says, “The launch of the Stop’N’Go range of safety gloves is a perfect example of what we offer our clients. Close collaboration and expertly tailored products to both their industries and daily tasks”. They currently supply clients like Suez R&R Ltd, Cardiff Council and Cory Environmental and are hoping that their latest move with the Stop’N’Go safety glove range will help both their existing clients and also be used throughout the waste sector.

This product innovation was created with the specific aim of tackling the high number of reversing accidents and associated fatalities in the waste industry. “With the largest cause for fatalities being ‘struck by a moving vehicle’ and a quarter of these deaths occurring whilst reversing it seemed a primary area of concern that we could do relatively little about as a protective equipment supplier, and that’s what we wanted to change” says Obe Nunn (Technical Advisor, PK Safety). Roy further points out that “if there is no death then a reversing accident can cause significant, life changing injuries or substantial damage to property or premises, all of which pose large and unneeded costs to the company(ies) involved.”

The safety gloves have been designed to offer what PK Safety call a “convenient switch” for waste companies. They are currently available in a textured rubber coating called Cratex (crinkle latex) which offers users improved grip and water resistance on the job, features that PK Safety have identified as critical for carrying out basic collection and processing tasks in the recycling sector. Available in 2 different cut levels and 2 levels of coating the safety gloves cater for a wide range of scenarios and alternative tasks.

Roy Wells (Managing Director of PK Safety) explained “It’s such a simple idea, we can’t believe it hasn’t been done before. We’ve had fantastic feedback from everyone we’ve presented the Stop ‘N’ Go concept too. There is nothing to install, nothing to hold and nothing you need to be trained on which makes it the convenient switch from your current safety gloves. No stress, no mess. We’ve kept it nice and simple, how safety should be.”

“The real joy of this solution is how it fits seamlessly with the guidelines offered by the HSE for assisting a vehicle whilst reversing. It simply makes communication clearer and more effective and that was the main aim throughout our collaboration with PK Safety. I think it’s a simple but effective innovation that will hopefully make a real difference for waste collectors and the way we carry out reversing operations” says Chris Beddoes CMIOSH (SHEQ Manager at SUEZ R&R Ltd).
