The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on The CFPB's TILA/RESPA Integrated Disclosures Rule: Navigating Its Enforcement Predicament

The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on The CFPB's TILA/RESPA Integrated Disclosures Rule: Navigating Its Enforcement Predicament

The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: The CFPB's TILA/RESPA Integrated Disclosures Rule: Navigating Its Enforcement Predicament. This two-hour event is scheduled on October 23, 2015 at 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM ET.

Event Synopsis:
Aiming to simplify closed-end credit transactions and processes, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has recently published the Truth-In-Lending Act (TILA)/Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA) integrated disclosures (TRID) rule.

The new regulation, under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, will become effective in August 2015 and is expected drastically to change the pre-closing disclosures creditors, mortgage brokers, and settlement agents must provide to borrowers under RESPA and TILA. With the TRID rule, making closed-end credit transactions will be easier. However, gearing up for implementation and compliance challenges is a must for consumers and creditors as drastic changes could also mean new requirements, expenses and liabilities.

Among other changes to the existing pre-closing procedures, the TRID enables 'integrated disclosures' in lieu of various documents traditionally used under RESPA and TILA for certain qualifying loans. However, implementation and compliance are problematic for creditors. In addition, the lack of a gradual transition to the new, integrated disclosures has many lawmakers and trade organizations questioning whether the CFPB should implement a non-enforcement period to allow creditors a period of adjustment before enforcement.

The Newest Product That Has the Hunting Community Talking

The Newest Product That Has the Hunting Community Talking

The world’s first energy bar made specifically for hunters and fishermen hits the market.

 New startup, Hunter Bars, announced today that it is raising funds via a rewards / equity crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to produce and distribute their revolutionary nutritional energy bar. The company set out to raise $50,000 on Indiegogo for manufacturing and fulfillment of the first batch of their product that could drastically simplify the decades old tradition of preparing snacks before heading out on the hunt.

Over the years the hunting and fishing industries have seen significant improvements in equipment and gear, yet there have been no developments in food and nutrition for the hunter. Hunters and anglers are still preparing the same snacks to take out on the hunt as their grandparents did. But unfortunately those soggy PB&J’s, slices of beef jerky and cups of coffee don’t contain the nutrients required to sustain a days worth of hunting.

The all new Hunter Bar is hear to change that. Hunter Bars are packed with protein and use key ingredients that increase mental alertness and give energy without the jitters. These bars provide nutrients that increase stamina and energy so people can stay in the hunt longer.

Avid outdoorsman and co-founder, Dino Rosetti, got the idea for Hunter Bars upon reflecting on how much time in food prep is dedicated to a hunt and yet yields very little reward, “No matter what I kind of food I would bring out with me, it was something I never really enjoyed, and I always returned hungry.” Co-founder, Kevin Hale, had similar experiences, “I have many fond memories of hunting and fishing with my grandfather, but the food he brought with us wasn’t one of them.” With the release of Hunter Bars, these kind of experiences will soon become a thing of the past.

Rosetti and Hale have enlisted the help of Food Scientist and Nutritionalist, Dr. Jana Bogs, who is also a hunter herself coming from a long line of hunters, to help develop the Hunter Bar. “I know what it’s like to be out in the wilderness for hours on end,” says Bogs, “You need something that’s easy to eat, that’s got to be great tasting and gives you sustained energy. That’s what we’re doing with Hunter Bars.”

Hunter Bars’ Indiegogo campaign is currently underway and can be found at: N35WdADsJrs/x or by searching "Hunter Bars" on Indiegogo's website.

More information is available at 415-392-2900 or Event Synopsis:
Technology Assisted Review (TAR) is a relatively new form of investigative litigation in which a subset of documents are reviewed by attorneys and marked for relevance. Then, specialized software is used to apply the review decisions from the subset of documents to all remaining unreviewed documents. In supervised learning TAR (SLTAR), a type of predictive coding, the software simply identifies similar documents coded as ‘relevant’. In active learning TAR (ALTAR), also predictive, a subset of documents is chosen by attorneys and the computer returns samples of potential relevance. Finally, in knowledge engineering TAR (KETAR), software attempts to replicate how an attorney thinks about complex problems and then creates a statistically generated ‘decision tree’ using artificial intelligence algorithms to determine relevance.

According to a representative of the US DOJ Antitrust Division, they expect that use of TAR in merger and acquisition litigation will increase. Recent research has shown that TAR produces results that are at least comparable to manual review, with ALTAR and KETAR demonstrating 10 percent greater accuracy. However, such predictive coding used to determine relevancy is only as good as the algorithms used and the ability of initial reviewers. Worryingly for the scientifically minded, there is limited robust statistical data on effectiveness, accuracy, and precision.

The Knowledge Group has assembled a panel of key thought leaders to provide the audience with an in-depth review and discussion of Technology-Assisted Document Review (TAR) in Merger Investigations. Speakers will explain the benefits of adopting TAR and its implications for merging parties. The panel also will provide the audience with best practices to avoid common pitfalls and risks in using TAR for merger investigations.

Key topics include:
- Merger Investigations – An Overview
- Technology-Assisted Document Review (TAR)
- TAR in Merger Litigation – Benefits and Implications
- Risks and Pitfalls of using TAR
- Traditional Review vs. TAR
- TAR Requirements, Costs, and Complications
- Statistical Robustness
- Regulatory Updates

iPAD DRC Diamond Sponsor Ivanhoe Mines Says "This is the Best Time for Mines to Invest and Seek Operational Efficiencies to Remain Competitive"

iPAD DRC Diamond Sponsor Ivanhoe Mines Says "This is the Best Time for Mines to Invest and Seek Operational Efficiencies to Remain Competitive"

Mr. Louis Watum, Managing Director, Ivanhoe Mines DRC, says "Now is the time to invest and to look for ways to improve our respective operational efficiencies in order to stay competitive.”

 “Now that commodities prices are low, it should be recalled that there will always be mining cycles, resulting in highs and lows, and that now is the time to invest and to look for ways to improve our respective operational efficiencies in order to stay competitive.” This is according to Mr. Louis Watum, Managing Director, Ivanhoe Mines DRC, this year’s diamond sponsors for both the iPAD Mining and Infrastructure Indaba in Kinshasa from 15-16 October and the Katanga Mining Week in Lubumbashi from 20-21 October.

Mr Watum says his message at the leading October mining events will furthermore be that “the State in turn needs to take an honest look at the current bearish commodity market and adjust its fiscal expectations from the mining industry. Each party in the trilogy between the State, mining operators and civil society must play its own role. Lastly, I remain convinced that developing profitable mining projects remains a singularly important way to propel our country into the realm of emerging economies.”

October is iPAD month in the DRC
Now in its 11th year, the iPAD DRC conference and exhibition has become an integral part of the development of the industrialisation and reconstruction of the country, gathering key government and industry stakeholders.

The sixth edition of Katanga Mining Week will also see DRC’s mining community, global partners, investors and suppliers meet up in Lubumbashi to focus on the local challenges of the province as the hub of copper and cobalt mining in the DRC as well as the role of the mining industry in social development responsibilities. The event also offers an exciting expo with the latest mining technology, free workshops for mine personnel and a high-level conference track.

Mining at Kamoa to start in 2018
Ivanhoe Mines DRC are in the initial stages of building a large, modern copper mine at Kamoa, close to Kolwezi. The company says the Kamoa copper deposit, one of the largest ever exploited in the world, contains 739 million tonnes of ore at 2.67% Cu (measured resources) and 227 million tonnes of ore at 1.96% (inferred resources), with a cut-off grade of 1% Cu.

“The Kamoa mine will be developed in phases,” says Mr Watum, “the first phase will consist of a conventional underground copper mine and surface concentrator complex with an initial mining rate and concentrator capacity of three million tonnes per year. The first phase of mining would target high-grade copper mineralization from shallow, underground resources to yield a high-value concentrate. In the second phase this modern, mechanised, underground mine will be expanded to eight million tonnes per year in concentrator capacity.”

He says that mining operations at Kamoa should begin at the end of 2018 adding that “a smelter is planned with a capacity of 300,000 tonnes of copper/year, which is equivalent to one third of the copper produced by all mining companies in the DRC.”

Challenges to DRC mining sector
According to the Ivanhoe Mines DRC Managing Director the main challenges facing the country’s mining sector include:

- The current review of the DRC Mining Code: “It is important that the Congolese State, in its review of mining contracts, guarantee both the stability of benefits offered to investors, in addition to adequate tax incentives and transparency in their application, which will have the effect of attracting the much needed large investments to develop the country.”

- The current deficit of electricity available for mining projects: “Since the current energy deficit is enormous in the DRC, it is important that we collectively look beyond the current short‑term arrangements to rehabilitate existing infrastructures or buy electricity from neighbouring countries, and that we truly commit to creating new energy production infrastructures.”

- The poor and insufficient basic infrastructure: “It is crucial that the Congolese State pay particular attention to this issue and mobilise the resources necessary to develop adequate infrastructures.”

- Artisanal mining challenge: “Whilst the Congolese State is allowing some areas to be exploited by artisanal miners in an attempt to try and reduce unemployment and community distress, the negative impacts of these activities and the risk of sterilization of vast areas with high mineralogical potential, should encourage all parties of the mining sector, in addition to the Congolese State and civil society, to look for alternative solutions in order to create employment and business opportunities in lieu of forfeiting long term potential grow of the economy.”

- The “enigmatic trilogy” of the State/Government, mining companies/investors and civil society/local populations.

Mr. Saso Jovanovski, the CEO of iVote, was invited to conduct training for the usage of Epistum Learning Management System (LMS) for Nigerian educational sector.

 Mr. Saso Jovanovski, the CEO of iVote, was invited to conduct training for the usage of Epistum Learning Management System (LMS) for Nigerian educational sector.

Often students have different learning approaches of those presented by the educators. Having full attention from students who attend classes in traditional classrooms, who just sit and listen to the teacher, is getting harder and harder, especially nowadays with so many IT gadgets and devices available.

“We are living in technological era surrounded with many different appliances. Constant changes become part of our everyday lives. The usage of ICT in education sectro has opened wide arrange of opportunities. Now, students can attend courses and classes in real time without constraint of their physical presence. Students and teachers can communicate with each other and share their own knowledge at any time using peer to peer communication tools. Discussions and different opinions can be expressed using forums. Real time evaluation tests and quizzes are no longer obstacles. These are few of the many opportunities that IT can do to facilitate educational process and make it more stirring for the both sides,” said Mr. Saso Jovanovski, CEO of iVote.

Upper Midwest Grocery Chain Strack & Van Til Cuts Store Electricity Use by More Than 25% in Less Than a Year

Upper Midwest Grocery Chain Strack & Van Til Cuts Store Electricity Use by More Than 25% in Less Than a Year

Company cites key help from SINGH360 and Energy Advantage, Inc.,

 The 38-store grocery chain Strack & Van Til (SVT) has reduced its use of electricity by 26.6% in a two-store pilot program begun in 2014. Overall, the chain cut electricity use by 11.5% in stores open more than a year.

“It was critical for us to reduce one of our largest controllable expenses,” said Andy Raab, vice president real estate at SVT, LLC, which owns and operates Strack & Van Til. “We wanted to save money because we have an aggressive remodeling plan in the works.”

The challenges were considerable, Raab said. “Our stores are diverse. We have limited internal expertise on energy efficiency. And we have limited internal ability to measure and report on our energy performance.”

Nevertheless, SVT began a multi-part program in 2013 to reduce energy use and cost by 10% in three years, Raab said. The plan was to re-commission stores and implement new energy-efficiency technologies.

SVT turned to SINGH360 of Minneapolis, for expertise on energy efficiency. The other was Energy Advantage of Burlington, Ontario, for program design, management and data-analysis.

SINGH360 led SVT’s implementation of the efficiency measures and store recommissioning. Energy Advantage provided the independent measurement and verification process, performance analysis and incentive capture.

The chain exceeded its three-year target in just over two years. By mid-year 2015, they had cut overall electricity use by 11.5% across stores that had been operating for a year. The company calculated its savings after adjusting for differences in weather from year to year.

A key part of the program was an initial two-store pilot to verify the projected results. The pilot delivered a 26.6% reduction in electricity use in the two stores, again after allowing for differences in weather.

“SINGH360 helped us directly link store energy efficiency with our maintenance processes to reduce the costs of both energy and maintenance,” said Don Erminger, director of maintenance at SVT. “We are just getting started. We look forward to working with our partners SINGH360 and Energy Advantage to help us achieve our targeted savings.”

Now energy-efficiency measures are a core part of SVT’s multi-year remodelling capital program. The company continues to achieve similar results in recent store remodeling projects in Illinois and Indiana. SVT has since added nine new stores and reset their efficiency target for the next three years.

To implement an optimum energy solution, supermarkets need diverse knowledge and experience, said Abtar Singh, founder and CEO of SINGH360. They must understand mechanical systems, including HVAC, refrigeration, and lighting.

Grocers must also understand energy-efficient technologies such as variable-frequency drives (VFDs), electrically commutated (EC) motors, LED lighting, and door retrofitting, Singh said. Finally, they must understand how to communicate with their control systems through virtual private networks (or VPNs).

Many retailers don’t have all these capabilities in house, Singh said. That’s why it makes sense for them to work with a one-stop shop where they can hire all the skills they need.

SVT, LLC, is based in Highland, Indiana. The company operates stores in northwest Indiana and the Chicago metro area. It does business under the banners Strack & Van Til, Van Til’s, Ultra Foods and Town & Country Food Market.

About SINGH360 Inc.
Singh360 ( is a full-service consulting firm that specializes in facility management. The company has worked with the supermarket industry for 20 years, providing objective counsel that helps operators find and implement the best solutions to energy and maintenance challenges. The company’s solutions often incorporate the latest technologies.

Long Term Care Insurance Association Director Says Focus on Home Care Benefits

Long Term Care Insurance Association Director Says Focus on Home Care Benefits

The head of the national long-term care insurance trade association advised insurance agents today to focus on home care benefits. Jesse Slome, American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance, calls LTC insurance nursing home avoidance protection.

We've backed ourselves into a corner by focusing so much on nursing home risk and nursing home costs, shares the director of the national long term care insurance trade organization.

"People have never wanted to go to skilled nursing homes and the fact is that over half of all newly opened long term care insurance claims pay for home care," explains Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). Slome urges insurance professionals to create awareness for the fact that owning a long-term care insurance policy can be your nursing home avoidance protection.

Slome points to recent data that validates his assertion. "The number of Americans in their 70s, 80 and even older who live in their own home keeps increasing while the number of people living in institutional settings keeps decreasing," Slome notes. "Home care is what consumers want but say the word long-term care insurance and people associate it with nursing homes. That really needs to change."

According to Census data U.S. households headed by an individual age 75 or older has increased 13 percent since 2003.

The National Advisory Center for Short Term Care recently looked at home care insurance policies that would cover qualifying home care services. Some of these policies will accept applicants well into their 80s Slome points out. "As we approach Long Term Care Awareness Month, I urge insurance agents to start a dialogue that is beneficial to consumers," Slome urged. "There's no place like home and that's what consumers want so talk about solutions that meet their needs.

Consumers interested in learning more about home care benefits or obtaining long term care insurance costs can visit the organization's website at or call 818-597-3227 to connect with a knowledgeable insurance professional.

Minerva, a certified Aras partner working closely with ACGO France, has helped bring deep Aras technical expertise and drive improvements in several of the company's critical engineering business process automation projects.

Convert DjVu to PDF & Multi Frame Raster Format, DjVu Pages to Separate Images Using New Aspose.Imaging for Java 3.0.0

Convert DjVu to PDF & Multi Frame Raster Format, DjVu Pages to Separate Images Using New Aspose.Imaging for Java 3.0.0

This new release of Aspose.Imaging for Java 3.0.0 provided support for DjVu file format and Implement the ability to add new draw operations into existing metafile with saving the result. Moreover, it also support conversion of DjVu to multi frame raster formats, DjVu to PDF Format, conversion of specific DjVu pages to multi frame raster formats, conversion of DjVu pages to separate images and conversion of specific portion of DjVu page to Image.

What's New in this Release?

Aspose development team is pleased to announce the new release Aspose.Imaging for Java 3.0.0. This month’s release contains many useful improvements including the long awaited support for DjVu file format. DjVu file format is becoming popular as an alternative to PDF because it has smaller file size as compared to PDF. DjVu format can also be considered as a superior alternative to PDF for digital documents, to TIFF for scanned bitonal documents, to JPEG and JPEG2000 for photographs and pictures, and to GIF for large palatalized images. With this release, the API has provided the support for loading DjVu files for possible conversion to raster image formats as well as PDF. In order to provide this support, the API has exposed DjvuImage class along with many new helping classes, methods & properties listed in the Public API Changes in Aspose.Imaging for Java 3.0.0. Like PDF & TIFF, the DjVu files can have multiple pages/frames therefore while converting the DjVu files to raster formats such as TIFF & GIF, all pages of DjVu are rendered to the resultant image by default. It can also be used to convert the DjVu files to PDF format while using the existing PdfOptions class. It is up to the user requirement if all DjVu pages or a subset of the pages are to be exported in PDF format. It has exposed a new class IntRange that can be used to specify a range that in turn can be passed to an instance of DjvuMultiPageOptions for the conversion of specific range of DjVu pages to TIFF or GIF. It is also possible to store each DjVu page to separate raster image.

Want to Limit College Debt? Think Twice Before Borrowing or Spending.

Want to Limit College Debt? Think Twice Before Borrowing or Spending.

National nonprofit Guidewell Financial Solutions offers college students and their parents tips on how to avoid student loan repayment problems.

 College students who graduated last spring began life in the real world further in debt than any class before them. Young adults who started college this fall will probably leave school owing even more. However, national nonprofit Guidewell Financial Solutions believes it is possible for students and their families to buck this trend if they limit the amount of debt they incur, live on a budget, and keep unnecessary expense to a minimum.

How Much is Too Much?

Director of Counseling and Client Services Nina Heck says students who take out loans without considering how much they really need are likely to end up owing more than they expected. “Often times the amount of funding available may exceed the cost of tuition, and it’s very tempting to take out all the money that’s offered, but it can really bog you down once you have to pay it back.”

Certified financial counselor Glenn Smith agrees. He says, “Student loans live on long after graduation. When you leave school, a chunk of your paycheck will go toward repaying what’s owed for 10-to-35 years. This means any money you spend now may affect your ability to buy a car, a home, or even start a family down the road.”

Before obtaining a loan, Smith recommends students sit down with their parents and discuss three major questions: 1) If I take out this loan, how much will repayment cost each month and for how long? 2) How much income can I realistically expect to bring in while I’m paying back what I owe? 3) Once I make the loan payments each month will I still have enough money left over to survive?

If the answer to the final question is “no,” stop and brainstorm ways to reduce college costs. Smith says, “This may involve a shift in priorities. For example, it may mean attending community college and living at home at first, going to school in-state, or going to school part-time, so you also can work. If you ultimately plan to teach or work for a nonprofit, you may qualify for discharge or forgiveness on certain federal loans. The point is to realistically evaluate your present and future so you won’t be blindsided once you leave school.”

A Budget for Now and Beyond

Heck says, “During the school year, it makes sense for both students and their parents to set up and stick to a budget. This is the best way to know where your money is going. Keep a log of your expenses until you know for sure what you are averaging and cut back when you see some items are excessive.”

Smith also recommends students and parents regularly fine tune their spending plans. “Whenever circumstances change, your budget will, too. Once students have been in school a couple of months, this is the perfect time to revisit your budget. By then, you’ll have a better idea of what costs will run. Also take another look when you graduate.”

Needs vs. Wants

When young adults leave home for the first time, peer pressure and Spring Break loom large. College students who understand how credit cards work are less likely to fall prey to unnecessary splurges. From a credit perspective, what do students need to know? Heck says, “Making minimum monthly credit card payments won’t hurt your credit score, but it can take up to 10 years longer to pay off what you owe. And as a result, you’ll pay a lot more interest.”

Heck also advises students to avoid obtaining store cards for discounts on merchandise. “Having several puts you at greater risk of losing a card or becoming a victim of identity theft. If you charge enough to exceed more than 40 percent of your credit limit, this may put a dent in your credit score.”

If you’ve never budgeted before or learned about credit, Smith says, “No worries! We have a remedy: Guidewell Financial Solutions provides free, confidential financial counseling at our local offices and by phone. We can help you evaluate your income and expenses and come up with a spending plan that works. If you’re concerned about keeping costs in check, we can help you find ways to stay within your budget. If you’ve already run up your credit limit, we can even help you design a strategy for getting back on track.”

Solar Innovations, Inc. Completes Building Expansion

Solar Innovations, Inc. Completes Building Expansion

Solar Innovations, Inc., a custom manufacturer of residential and commercial sliding, folding, and stacking glass walls, doors, windows, and screens; conservatories; sunrooms; greenhouses; skylights; and curtain walls; completes building expansion.

Solar Innovations, Inc. completes expansion of the Company’s manufacturing space. The 30,000 sq. ft. expansion has doubled the size of one of Solar’s three buildings, increasing the overall size of the Company’s corporate office and manufacturing facility to 330,000 sq. ft.

The expansion has created additional space for storage as well as providing room for the Company’s growing vinyl composite product line. The vinyl composite line was formerly housed on the second floor of building 1’s manufacturing facility. Due to its locations, projects were required to be moved to and from the manufacturing floor using a forklift or freight elevator. Its new location will not only provide the vinyl team adequate room to work efficiently, but it has also created sufficient space for additional equipment and machinery. Implementing this change has not only allowed Solar Innovations, Inc. to continue expanding its manufacturing capabilities, but it has also shown a great increase in the team’s overall process.

Solar Innovations, Inc. completed installation of its first vinyl composite window in April 2015. The unique make-up of Solar’s vinyl composite framework does not conduct heat or cold, therefore, outdoor temperatures will not transfer through the system to the interior of the structure. Solar’s durable, energy-efficient vinyl composite framework requires minimal maintenance, and repainting is not required. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s versatile composite vinyl provides end users increased flexibility and is available for several Solar Innovations, Inc. door and window configurations.

Solar Innovations, Inc.’s LEED Gold facility is located on a three-building 36 plus acre campus. The Company has experienced exponential growth since its inception in 1998. Its first facility was 10,000 sq. ft. and located in Hellam, PA with just 12 team members. Two years later, Solar moved to a 45,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility before relocating a final time to its current location in Pine Grove, PA in 2009. At that time, the corporate office and manufacturing facility consisted of 224,000 sq. ft. and 100 team members. Now, six years later, the facility has expanded to 330,000 sq. ft and the Company employs over 160 team members.

AlterKnit New York Announces Exciting Promotion for Existing Customers

AlterKnit New York Announces Exciting Promotion for Existing Customers

Referral Program Offers Cash Back Incentive; Business Expanding Nationwide.

 AlterKnit New York announced its latest incentive to boost business and reward loyal clients. Aptly named “Unholey-Cash Club,” the new program is an automatic membership for existing customers where they can earn cash back for every referral given to AlterKnit New York. Explained founder and owner Miriam Mades, “For every friend the customer sends our way who uses any of our services, they will earn cash back – and as an added incentive, once they refer 10 customers, they receive an additional $25-back bonus!”

A New York-based company that specializes in the lost art of French reweaving and reknitting, including cashmere sweater repair and garment restoration, AlterKnit has been expanding its business exponentially over the past six years. Originally launched online as a sister company to an online retail store selling hand-knitting supplies, the demand for AlterKnit’s services exploded nearly overnight. Explained Mades, “Suddenly we started receiving more and more sweaters from around the country, and it was at that point we realized that we were way beyond serving the tri-state area.”

Mades added, “Since we’re located in Manhattan, we have access to amazing resources which enables us to meet the demands of our clientele. We can match yarn to a knit, swap out buttons, or add leather trims due to the wealth of resources in the city. We are even capable of fixing linings with the fabric options available to us. If you want a hand-knit item repaired, we can source in-person from a huge selection of yarn. We actually go out and shop for the specific need of the order to provide seamless results for our customers.”

When asked about her continued success and growth of the company, Miriam explained, “For me, being in business is not just about making money. There is something very intimate and obviously unique about the services we provide. The response to our work – unsolicited, handwritten thank-you notes and phone calls from happy customers – was pleasantly unexpected. When customers are telling you specifically what they’re looking for, it just makes our job easier. But when we receive continued positive feedback, it makes our workdays that much more satisfying – there is nothing like knowing you have made people happy!”

As a result of AlterKnit’s imminent expansion and positive reviews nationwide, including press in magazines such as Real Simple, Mades feels this promotion is simply a thank-you to loyal customers across the country, as well as a valuable opportunity to reach new customers. “Like any business, we want more people aware of our unique services. Most people don’t even know that we can save their cherished clothing, heirloom blankets, leather garments and shoes or favorite sweater with such excellent results. We understand the value of our clients’ belongings – beyond the monetary value, we realize the sentimental value, too,” and added that each and every item that AlterKnit receives is treated with the same amount of attention to care and detail.

Maverick Musician Brazenly Busking the USA in Rebellion

Maverick Musician Brazenly Busking the USA in Rebellion

Singer-songwriter Shanta Paloma embarks on her Guerrilla Gigs Tour Across The United States of America.

 Indie Soul Rock Singer-Songwriter Shanta Paloma is setting out on tour, brazenly busking 27 major cities and national landmarks in The United States of America. Starting from Massachusetts and making her way along Rt. 66 to the west coast and back, Shanta will be spontaneously singing & strumming her songs. “If I can’t hop on the bill as an opening act, or as an opener to the opening act at my venues of choice, I’ll perform on the sidewalk for the entrance line!”

This adventure will be videotaped and shared via Paloma’s Youtube Channel: and her website,

“The whole project is a demonstration not only on following one’s bliss, but also on how the music industry has changed so drastically, since social media networks and online distribution,” Paloma said. “The music industry rules keep changing as fast as it takes us musicians to catch on. We are also our own PR reps, booking agents, marketing firms, managers, promoters, sound guys, roadies & web designers. Now, more than ever, we artists must create something out of nothing. And that can take away resources from making Quality art! There are the rules that never change — Share Good Music. I’ve been successful where I am, but my new business model is to share my music guerrilla, grassroots style.” Read more at

“What better way for me to do this than to traverse this great land we have – the land of the free & the brave? Well, though I’m scared, I’m going to just go and tour. I mean, why not?!! The Guerrilla Gigs Tour is about music from my heart & soul, shared directly on the streets with people all across America. If I can help one person feel catharsis; entertain and raise the mood of just one person; then, I’ve helped humanity in some way. Why can’t it be just as simple as that? I believe in sharing resources and this is what I have to offer. Also, that is why my tour is also, in part, to support Oxfam International.”

Maverick musician, Shanta Paloma embarks on her voyage in Boston, on October 4th, 2015. She will be headed northwest, down California and then back to New England, via the southern route.

The firms selected were recognized for their ability to inspire their teams to perform at the highest levels while creating an environment where their teams feel valued, can make a difference, and can clearly see their contribution to the overall mission and success of the firm.

“This is such an honor to be included on the Zweig Group’s list of best firms to work for,” said Diane Osan, ‎Chairman & Chief Visionary Officer at FKP Architects. “The happiness and welfare of our employees is central to our culture. Their passion for what they do is the reason we are successful and, in turn, they create innovative, unique design solutions for our clients. This award demonstrates that our FKP family is healthy and positively engaged – to us there is nothing more important.”

Throughout the years, FKP has consistently been named a great place to work, having been named in several other programs, including the Houston Business Journal’s Best Places to Work, Dallas Business Journal’s Best Places to Work and Texas Monthly magazine’s Best Places to Work for in Texas.

“Creating an environment for our employees to thrive is something we strive for every day. We want to recruit and retain the best and to do that we must empower employees at all levels to do what they love to do,” said Denise Starrett, Chief Human Resources Officer at FKP Architects. “And of course, we want this to be a place where we can all have fun too.”

Zweig Group, a management consulting and research firm, established the “Best Firms to Work For” award in 2001. This year, 145 companies competed in five categories.

NiLi (9 /10): NiLi is NightLife made easy. It’s an app that rockin and roarin in cities like Los Angeles, Las Vegas and San Francisco, offering up ideas on where to do during the day and after the sun sets.

Lee County Bar Association Presents Veterans and First Responders Legal Clinic

Lee County Bar Association Presents Veterans and First Responders Legal Clinic

Pro Bono Committee offers much-needed free legal advice on October 3.

 The Pro Bono Committee of the Lee County Bar Association (LCBA) invites veterans, active military personnel, police officers and firefighters to receive free legal advice at a Veterans and First Responders Legal Clinic, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, October 3 at the Southwest Florida Military Museum and Library, 4820 Leonard Street in Cape Coral. Spearheaded by LCBA Secretary Kelly Fayer and sponsored by CONRIC PR & Marketing, the event is free of charge for attendees with valid identification, and no registration is required.

LCBA members will be joined by Florida Rural Legal Services staff attorneys to provide advice on matters including bankruptcy, landlord/tenant issues, estates and trust planning, real estate/property, family law, criminal, and veterans’ and social security benefits. In addition to legal advice, attendees will also have the opportunity to learn about the services provided by Invest in America’s Veterans Foundation and Homes for Heroes, which will be on hand at the event.

LCBA Pro Bono Committee Co-Chair Anais Bimonte said, “The Pro Bono Committee is interested in assisting the men and women who have given much in their service in the military and our community and who now need legal help.”

The Pro Bono Committee and the LCBA are grateful for the assistance of Invest in America’s Veterans Foundation, which has graciously provided the use of the Southwest Florida Military Museum and Library for the event.

Invest in America’s Veterans Foundation President Ralph Santillo said, “Some veterans have claims to be filed on their behalf to increase their disability payments, some have divorce or domestic problems and some have criminal cases pending.” He added, “There is never enough help in the legal field available to veterans who are living on limited incomes.”

Connie Ramos-Williams, CEO of CONRIC PR & Marketing, said, “As the Pro Bono Committee and LCBA strive to make legal services accessible to an often underserved population, we are pleased to help get the word out so veterans and first responders can now get the help they need.”

The Pro Bono Committee develops and expands pro bono activities to provide access to the justice system for clients who are unable to pay for attorneys’ services. Through events such as this clinic, private attorneys are able to provide brief services, without charge, to help individuals navigate the justice system.

Additional support has been provided by The Art and Science of Successful Planning. For more information about the LCBA, visit or call (239) 334-0047.
