Therefore, wireless Easyfit switches are maintenance-free due to no batteries, freely positionable and allow flexible control as well as intuitive usage.

"This agreement with EnOcean demonstrates the power of vendor cooperation," said Russ Sharer, Vice President of Global Marketing for Fulham. "Switches are an essential part of any lighting system and with this announcements, our customers now have self-powered, plug-and-play Bluetooth switches that can be installed anywhere, without additional wiring or batteries. As wireless lighting technology continues to evolve we will see more demand for flexible and maintenance-free products like EnOcean's Easyfit switch."

Artificial Intelligence Keynote Speaker Edgar Perez Hails UK Steps to Best US and China on Tech Race

Throughout history, there have been moments when the progress of technology has taken great steps forward, when a combination of the right tools, a capacity for innovation, and sparks of ingenuity lead to breakthroughs that transform how we live our lives. Executives in Kuala Lumpur, London, Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Mexico City and Hong Kong will acquire a comprehensive understanding of these technology trends and how they will impact business and society with Artificial Intelligence author and keynote speaker Edgar Perez.

New York City, NY, USA -- How we produce and process information is critical to innovation, and our methods of recording and communicating information have themselves undergone great leaps. At the same time, tools for processing and making sense of large quantities of data have developed exponentially, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) representing the latest leap. In the same way that Gutenberg's press ushered in a new era of growth, data-driven technologies such as AI will underpin our future prosperity.

The huge global opportunity AI presents is why the UK government identified AI and data as one of their Grand Challenges, in which the country could lead the world for years to come. The recently-announced Sector Deal is the first commitment from government and industry to realize this technology's potential, outlining a package of up to £1 billion of support for the sector.

The Sector Deal sets out actions to promote the adoption and use of AI in the UK, and delivers on the recommendations of the independent AI review, 'Growing the AI industry in the UK', led by Professor Dame Wendy Hall and Jérôme Pesenti1 (currently at Facebook). Their review engaged widely with businesses, academia, investors and other stakeholders on ways to boost the UK's emerging AI sector at home and across the world. It sets out proposals to improve the institutions that support AI in the United Kingdom, to build a skilled workforce, and to stimulate access to data, collectively the lifeblood of any AI business.

If there are critical areas in technology today that will greatly impact businesses for years to come, these are Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. If there are examples of countries rising to the AI challenge, the UK effort tops the list of geographies announcing a nationwide proposal to lead the industry globally, says renowned AI instructor Edgar Perez (http://www.mredgarperez.com), presenter of programs in these subjects in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, London, Mexico City and Hong Kong:

1. Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence Workshop:

Mumbai (July 19-20)
Abu Dhabi (July 24-25)
Hong Kong (August 15-16)
Mexico City (August 22-23)

2. Quantum Computing Workshop:

Abu Dhabi (July 26-27)
London (August 6-7)
Singapore (August 10-11)
Hong Kong (August 17-18)
Mexico City (August 24-25)

These programs go beyond technology, incorporating both short and long-term business impact; these courses allow participants to immediately capture the relevance and potential of these cutting-edge developments for their organizations.

The Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence Workshop for Today's Strategic Leaders focuses on practical applications of artificial intelligence for businesses using TensorFlow, the most widely-used deep learning framework from Google. Deep learning is already impacting every part of business today; in fact, PwC has warned that automation could replace 38% of all American jobs by 2030. Deep learning will continue to be a rich source of insights from ever-growing data sets being evaluated by powerful algorithms, enabling companies to make better decisions.

The Quantum Computing Workshop for Today's Strategic Leaders will show CEOs how to learn to harness the opportunities unveiled by Quantum Computing, how to identify challenges and how to prepare their organizations for what the future holds. Powerful quantum computers will model all 19,000+ proteins in the human genome and simulate how new drugs can cure everything from the common cold to cancer.

The Home Care Bible Now Available for Entrepreneurs Starting Their Own Senior Care Business

Founder of A Better Solution Home Care Nursing, Inc., Shares Tips and Techniques for Operating a Successful Home Health Care Operation.

San Diego, CA, USA -- The Home Care Bible is now available for entrepreneurs seeking to launch a successful business offering home care services to seniors. Written by Lia Smith-Pratt (http://liasmith.net), CEO of A Better Solution (ABS) Home Care & Nursing, The Home Care Bible shares her experience and business tips from more than 30 years in health care and 18 years at ABS providing home and nursing services to seniors.

According to the Family Caregiver Alliance there are more than 8.4 million American seniors that receive long-term care services annually, and 27 million seniors will need some form of care by 2050. As a result, the home care is currently a $93.4 billion industry growing at an annual rate of 3.4 percent. Since more than 90 percent of aging Americans are opting for home health care, so the need for independent home care providers continues to grow at a dramatic pace. The Home Care Bible was written specifically for nurses, therapists, and non-medical professionals seeking to become their own boss and establish their own senior care practice.

"After working with so many home care providers over the years I have seen all the mistakes as well as a variety of successes," said Smith-Pratt. "To be a winner in home care you need to adopt the right mindset and know where to look for potential pitfalls that could sink your business. Although I originally wrote The Home Care Bible to help ABS franchise partners, the book contains valuable lessons for anyone considering entering the home senior care field."

In The Home Care Bible, Smith-Pratt shares her tips and techniques to home senior care business owners in how to avoid costly mistakes and build a successful business. It also illustrates how to build a care business with a culture of integrity and dedication to the Spirit of Service.

The Home Care Bible is available in paperback from Amazon or online at http://liasmith.net.

First Edition Design Publishing Releases New Book by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin

Appointment in Prague - a Mattie McGary + Winston Churchill World War II Adventure, by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin, features British secret agent Mattie McGary in her own solo adventure against the Nazi empire in wartime Prague.

Cleveland, OH, USA -- In the novella, Appointment in Prague, one woman, a British secret agent, sets out to single-handedly send to hell the most evil Nazi alive-SS General Reinhard Heydrich, the head of the SD, the intelligence wing of the SS and the architect of "The Final Solution" that will send millions of European Jews to their doom.

Winston Churchill in October 1941 authorizes the assassination of Heydrich by the British SOE-the 'Special Operations Executive' created by Churchill to 'set Europe ablaze'. He is unaware that the entire operation has been conceived and is being run by his Scottish goddaughter, the former Pulitzer Prize-winning Hearst photojournalist Mattie McGary who joined the SOE at his suggestion after he became Prime Minister in May 1940.

Mattie has a history with Heydrich dating back to 1933 and a personal score to settle. In September 1941, when the man known variously as 'The Blond Beast' and 'The Man With the Iron Heart'-that last coming from Adolf Hitler himself-is appointed Reichsprotektor of Bohemia and Moravia, the remnants left of Czechoslovakia, Mattie decides-now that he is no longer safely within Germany's borders-that he must die. She persuades her boss at SOE to secure Churchill's consent. She then recruits and trains several Czech partisans for the task and has them parachuted into Czechoslovakia in December 1941.

An increasingly impatient Mattie waits in London for word that her agents have killed the Blond Beast. By May 1942, Heydrich still lives and Mattie is furious. The mother of six-year-old twins, Mattie decides-without telling her godfather or her American husband, the #2 man in the London station of the American OSS-to parachute into Czechoslovakia herself and "light a fire under their timid Czech bums". Which she does, but her agents botch the job and Heydrich is only wounded in the attempt. The doctors sent from Berlin by Hitler to care for him believe the Man With the Iron Heart will recover. Mattie is determined this won't happen.

On the fly, Mattie conceives a new plan to kill Heydrich herself. With forged papers and other help from the highest-placed SOE asset in Nazi Germany-a one-time lover-Mattie decides to covertly enter Prague's Bulovka Hospital and finish the job. After that, all she has to do is flee Prague into Germany and from there to neutral Switzerland and home to London. What Mattie doesn't know is that Walter Schellenberg, Heydrich's protégé and the head of Foreign Intelligence for the SD, has been watching her every move and has plans to stop her before she can reach Switzerland and safety.

Michael McMenamin is the co-author with his son Patrick of the award-winning 1930s era historical novels featuring Winston Churchill and his fictional Scottish goddaughter, the adventure-seeking Hearst photojournalist Mattie McGary. The first five novels in the series-The DeValera Deception, The Parsifal Pursuit, The Gemini Agenda, The Berghof Betrayal and The Silver Mosaic-received a total of 15 literary awards. He is currently at work with his daughter Kathleen McMenamin on the sixth Mattie and Winston historical novel, The Liebold Protocol, to be published in fall 2018.

Kathleen, the other half of the father-daughter writing team, has been editing her father's writing for longer than she cares to remember. She is the co-author with her sister Kelly of the critically acclaimed Organize Your Way: Simple Strategies for Every Personality [Sterling, 2017]. Kathleen is an honors graduate of Sarah Lawrence College with an MFA in Creative Writing from New York University.


Genre - Prague, SOE, Reinhard Heydrich, Adolf Hitler, Winston Churchill, Walter Schellenberg, OSS, Heinrich Himmler, Allen Dulles, Hugh Dalton

T5 Data Centers Signs Hospital Tenant for T5@LA Facility

Los Angeles Medical Network Selects T5@LA for Seismic Safety and Power Resilience to Ensure Continuous Uptime for Patient-critical Data Systems.

Los Angeles, CA, USA -- T5 Data Centers, innovators in providing secure, customizable, hyperscale computing environments for enterprise companies, today announced that a large regional hospital has signed as the newest tenant for its T5@LA data center. The hospital plans to migrate all data operations into T5@LA to take advantage of the purpose-built data center, seismic-hardened infrastructure, and the skilled on-site support of the T5 Facilities Management team.

Throughout the stringent selection process, several requirements needed to be met and verified by the new hospital tenant. At the top of the list, T5@LA had to be compliant with the California Seismic Safety Act, which requires all hospitals remain operational in the event of an earthquake. The deadline for compliance is January 1, 2020.

Other T5@LA attributes supporting the hospital tenant's decision are the dedicated on-site substation allowing for greater electrical resiliency, T5's world class Facilities Management & Operations as verified by the Uptime Institute, and robust security to ensure HIPAA compliance. Through the numerous connectivity carriers, various network technologies, and fiber density available within T5@LA, the hospital tenant was able to establish a multi-faceted network strategy. This included Metro Dark Fiber rings, direct Internet access, and cloud direct-connect capabilities.

"Over the last decade we have built our reputation by delivering uninterrupted data center services, which is essential for patient-critical compute systems," said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Operating Officer of T5 Data Centers. "We are seeing more hospitals looking to outsource data center operations to comply with the Seismic Safety Act. T5 remains confident that other discerning CIOs and data center operations managers will come to T5 seeking highly reliable, versatile, purpose-built data center services."

Significant Reductions in Costly Pulmonary Complications with Use of Drug-Free Device

Plattsburgh, NY, USA -- Post-operative pulmonary complications (PPCs) are a major burden to the healthcare system. A new real-world study published in Pulmonary Therapy, indicates significant reductions in costs when using the AEROBIKA® oscillating positive expiratory pressure (OPEP) device in the postoperative care setting.(1) The retrospective database analysis including 288 patients undergoing cardiac, thoracic or upper abdominal surgery suggests that use of the AEROBIKA® OPEP device in addition to standard of care (incentive spirometry, IS) was associated with fewer re-hospitalizations, shorter hospital stays and lower costs compared with patients using standard of care alone.

At 30 days post-discharge, significantly fewer patients in the AEROBIKA® OPEP device cohort were re-hospitalized (13.9 vs. 22.9%; p=0.042), and mean length of hospital stay was significantly shorter (1.25±4.04 days vs. 2.60±8.24 days; p=0.047) compared with the IS cohort. Costs due to hospitalizations were 80% lower in the AEROBIKA® OPEP device group (p=0.001).

The burden of PPCs, especially in patients undergoing abdominal, thoracic or cardiac surgery, is substantial:

death rate is higher compared with patients who don't have PPCs (at 30 days mortality is up to 10 times higher, and at 90 days up to 20 times higher)

resource use and costs are significantly increased (mainly due to longer length of hospital stay); a US database study of over 700,000 patients predicted that PPCs could lead to an additional 9,500 deaths, 92,000 extra ICU admissions and overall added costs to the US of US$3.42 billion.(2)

The causes of PPCs may be related to, among other things, shallow breathing and reduced airway clearance, therefore physical therapy techniques that increase lung volume and clearance have been recommended to reduce the risk and severity of PPCs. One such technique is incentive spirometry (IS), which encourages the patient to take long, slow breaths by inhaling through a device to raise a ball or piston.(3) The use of IS is common in clinical practice although there appears to be little evidence to support its value.(3,4) Another commonly used intervention to prevent and treat PPCs is positive expiratory pressure (PEP) therapy, which involves breathing against expiratory resistance.

The AEROBIKA® OPEP device is an easy-to-use, drug-free oscillating positive expiratory pressure (OPEP) device; when the patient exhales through the device, intermittent resistance creates a unique pressure-oscillation dynamic, which expands the airways and helps expel mucus to the upper airways where it can be coughed out. Clinical trial and real-world data have shown that the AEROBIKA® OPEP device increases lung volume, reduces hyperinflation and improves airway clearance in patients with COPD(5) or bronchiectasis,(6) as well as reducing exacerbations in patients with COPD.(7) These observations suggested a potential value for the device in preventing PPCs, leading the authors to conduct this retrospective real-world database study.

Co-author Dominic Coppolo, MBA, RRT, FAARC, Vice President Clinical Strategy and Development, commented that "based on the study findings, and taking into consideration both the low cost and low risk safety profile of the AEROBIKA® OPEP device, I would suggest that it could be beneficial to include as standard of care in all such post-operative patients", noting that future studies are warranted to further define the benefits. He went on to add "The fact that patients in the AEROBIKA® OPEP device group in our study incurred lower healthcare costs in the 30-day period following discharge (mainly as a result of fewer complications requiring readmission) is particularly relevant as providers and insurers look to reduce early rehospitalization."

About the AEROBIKA® Device
The AEROBIKA® OPEP device (http://www.monaghanmed.com/aerobika) is a hand-held, robust, easy-to-use, drug-free oscillating positive expiratory pressure (OPEP) device designed to help expel mucus from the lungs, expand airways and enhance drug deposition. When the patient exhales through the device, intermittent resistance creates a unique pressure-oscillation dynamic, which expands the airways, helps expel the mucus to the upper airways where it can be coughed out. The AEROBIKA® OPEP device is designed to function independent of angle of use or flow rate, and allows for a direct aerosol pathway for patients using a nebulizer for medication delivery. The AEROBIKA® OPEP device has been shown to significantly improve forced vital capacity (FVC), 6-min walk distance (6MWD), and St. George's Respiratory Questionnaire (SGRQ) score in COPD patients.(8) The AEROBIKA® OPEP device is available in the US via Monaghan Medical Corporation, and in Canada, Mexico, and select European countries including the UK and Germany through Trudell Medical International (http://www.trudellmed.com).

About the study
This retrospective database study utilized patient data stored in IQVIA's proprietary Hospital Charge Detail Master (CDM) database. The CDM database manages daily transactional patient charges from over 650 hospitals from 46 states in the USA, covering 7 million annual inpatient stays and 60 million annual outpatient visits. A total of 887 cardiac, thoracic or upper abdominal surgery patients hospitalized between 1 September 2013 and 30 April 2017 were identified to have used the AEROBIKA® OPEP device (in addition to standard of care, incentive spirometry), of whom 144 matched the selection criteria. The comparison cohort was 144 propensity-score matched subjects who had used IS alone.
