New United Way Report Shows 29% of Bay Area Households Are Struggling to Afford Basic Needs

Some Families Need Four Minimum Wage Workers to Make Ends Meet.

San Francisco, CA, USA (October 23, 2014) -- Struggling to Make Ends Meet on Minimum Wage, new brief by United Way of the Bay Area, reveals that as of 2012, 29% of Bay Area households were struggling to cover the cost of basic needs. That's 657,000 households that cannot afford critical needs like housing, food, health care and child care. According to the brief, the post-recession recovery has yet to be felt by many Bay Area households because wages for low-income workers have failed to keep up with the high cost of living.

Since 2008, the overall cost of living has increased by an average of 26% in San Francisco and 24% in Alameda County. Monthly housing expenses for a San Francisco family with two adults and two children cost an average of $1,444 in 2008, but that number jumped to $1,896 in 2014.

Yet average wages increased just 7% for the lowest-paid workers between 2007 and 2012. According to the California Self-Sufficiency Standard, a San Francisco family with two adults and two children would need to earn $79,092 annually to cover the cost of basic needs. That would require four full-time jobs at San Francisco's hourly minimum of $10.74. In Alameda, the same family would need to earn $72,830 annually to cover the cost of basic needs. At Alameda's $9 per hour minimum wage, that would also require four full-time jobs.

Because the cost of living in the Bay Area is so much higher than the national average, the Self-Sufficiency Standard is a much more accurate predictor of need than the Federal Poverty Line for California households. The Self-Sufficiency Standard calculates the income needed to cover the true cost of basic needs in the specific county where an individual or family lives.

"It's unrealistic that parents could work four full-time minimum wage jobs to cover the cost of basic needs for their families," said Anne Wilson, Chief Executive Officer at United Way of the Bay Area. "United Way of the Bay Area is proud to join a broad coalition of civic leaders in supporting Proposition J in San Francisco and Measure FF in Oakland, which will help more Bay Area households move closer to achieving self-sufficiency."

Proposition J would phase in a higher minimum wage to $15 per hour over the next four years and benefit more than 23% of San Francisco's workforce. Measure FF would increase Oakland's minimum wage to $12.25 and benefit up to 30% of the city's workers.

In addition to raising the minimum wage, United Way of the Bay Area supports other key strategies to boost family stability: 1) increase job training to help critical populations acquire the skills needed to attain higher-wage jobs, 2) change policies to reward people for moving off safety net benefits, and 3) boost collaboration among agencies to increase the accessibility of support services.

Risk Management Technology Leader Robert Gardner to Keynote Cyber Security World Conference 2014

Golden Networking brings Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com), forum that will provide the latest thinking from dozens of security experts to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting today enterprises' information assets.

New York City, NY, USA (October 23, 2014) -- Robert Gardner, founding partner of New World Technology Partners (NWTP), will keynote upcoming Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com), unique forum where cyber security experts are set to discuss topics such as protecting individuals and companies against cyber-attacks, biometrics as the future of security, risks brought by mobile computing, and protecting corporate and national infrastructure against foreign attacks.

Mr. Gardner's presentation, "The Enterprise Impact of Cyber Risk - through the Shareholder Lens," is based upon 40 years of study and practice of cyber assurance. Beyond the security that can be achieved by responsible cyber hygiene (which we still do not practice, but can prevent 75% or more of the problem), according to Mr. Gardner, critical infrastructure and national leaders must consider two paradigm shifts in their risk management thinking:

1. The cyber eco-system underpinning their enterprise is not what they think it is - it has become a real-time complex system of systems - where runaway complexity presents systemic risks and exploitable vulnerabilities, which may have immediate, irreversible stakeholder consequences. (i.e. before the next 10Q or congressional hearing)

2. It can be managed by isolating the most consequential incidents - quantifying and prioritizing (aka Risk Triage) their financial, reputation/political and legal/regulatory exposure - which can be achieved by several old ( Bell Labs vintage system engineering analyses) and new (socio-political sentiment analysis) techniques.

However the C-Suite and their Boards must really get into the game to set the tone and become Cyber Exposure savvy, says Mr. Gardner. He has been a leader in cyber and critical infrastructure risk management technology and an incubator of technology enterprises since the mid-seventies. Mr. Gardner managed/participated in the launch of several development stage companies formed around those technologies, including August Systems, Verdix, Meiko Scientific, Cryptek, Phoenix Numeric and Probity Labs.

Formed The Probity Group to provide enterprise risk analyses for executives regarding complex systems and critical infrastructure risk. Coordinated development of Gradient™ technology to quantify systemic risk causes and consequences for commercial, federal and international enterprises.

Incubated iRISK™ Enterprise Risk Management methodology for a Fortune 500 enterprise to quantify the financial and public reaction (brand) consequences of cyber risk affecting shareholder and national security interests. Underlying intellectual property was vetted by industry, government and academic leaders in Energy, Financial Services, Chemical and Homeland Security communities.

Rebuilt security division of a public company which developed the first B2 Multi-level Secure (MLS) Network evaluated by NSA, and spun it off to a public secure communications company. Arranged financing and managed turn-around of the merged company. Strengthened secure products portfolio for U.S. and International markets, which reversed losses and achieved rapid profitability. Coordinated sale of company to prominent U.S. hedge fund.

At a mid-cap DoD service provider, he created an intellectual property incubator which introduced Trusted TeamWorks™ and other cyber risk innovations.

Incubated Supercomputer technology into products for U.S. operation of a U.K. parallel processing company. Successfully competed for high visibility Government and Industrial accounts, and was awarded the 1991 Northeast Small Business Prime Contractor of the Year recognition.

Member of startup team which developed NASA's Software Implemented Fault Tolerance (SIFT) technology, pioneering Triple Modular Redundant (TMR) fault tolerant control systems. Business achieved success among International energy companies and Government Agencies. Subsequently spun off and acquired by ABB, which still operates 1000s of systems.

Prior to forming NWTP, he held senior engineering and technical marketing positions for ILLIAC IV, PEPE, LDSP and NASF supercomputer projects at Burroughs Corporation, for which he received numerous technical and market accolades and awards.

He often writes and speaks on topics regarding intellectual property and has prepared briefings and testimony for the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate caucuses on the technology impact on Financial (TARP) Infrastructure and The "First Three Hours" Emergency Response Methods.

Mr. Gardner also teaches business planning for artists at New York City's "Third Ward" creative incubation center, and assisted formation and governance of New York based arts enterprises, including The Brick Theater and In The Pocket NYC. He has a BSEE from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and studied graduate system engineering and business administration at Penn State and the University of Santa Clara respectively.

Rosendin Electric Wins a Gold Vision Award from Constructech for New Mobile Material and Tool Management App

Rosendin Electric Recognized for Harnessing Mobile Computing Technology to Automate Material and Tool Management from the Job Site.

San Jose, CA, USA (October 15, 2014) -- Rosendin Electric, the nation's largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, today announced the company has received the Gold Constructech Vision Award in the Specialty Contractor: Electrical Work category. The award was recently announced in Redwood City, California, following Constructech magazine's Technology Day.

The Constructech Vision Awards acknowledge companies that have stayed up-to-date on the latest trends and products in order to make decisions that have helped their businesses succeed and thrive. Rosendin Electric was selected for a Gold Vision Award for developing a new mobile app that works with the Autodesk® BIM 360™ Field platform to streamline material and tool management for field personnel.

Rather than manually listing materials or equipment and generating paper or email requisitions, the Material and Tool Management App allows the field team to use mobile devices to order conduit, wire, fixtures, and other materials. The requisition is automatically routed for approval and fulfillment by purchasing, the equipment yard, Tool Manager, or other departments. The App is designed to check inventory before generating a purchase order and every order has a QR code that tracks the materials from shipping to the final installation location. The App has even been extended to support Rosendin Electric's pre-fabrication unit where assemblies are built, coded for tracking, and shipped to the job site.

With the deployment of the Material and Tool Management App, Rosendin Electric has been able to dramatically reduce the time required to process materials and equipment orders. It has also reduced shipping and receiving errors and provides excellent materials tracking. Furthermore, the App has been designed to integrate with the existing document repository software and mobile technology already in use so no additional software or training were required.

"We have found that using handheld devices on the job site has revolutionized the way we work, and receipt of a Gold Vision Award is validation of the company's innovation and technological achievements," said Sam Lamonica, Vice President and CIO for Rosendin Electric. "We decided to create this app in-house since we better understood our requirements, and our team was able to acquire the skills needed for mobile app design and development so we didn't have to restructure our IT Development Group. Now that we have the knowledge, we can continue to untether our field personnel, building apps for other business applications so users can access them from the job site."

Rosendin Electric also received a Gold Constructech Vision Award in the category of Specialty Contractor: Electrical Work in 2011 and 2012.

21 Employers To Recruit at The Oklahoman Transportation Career Fair

Companies looking for drivers, mechanics and dispatchers.

Oklahoma City, OK, USA (October 15, 2014) -- On Saturday October 18, 2014 The Oklahoman Newspaper will be holding its first ever Transportation Career Fair with twenty one top employers in attendance recruiting for drivers, mechanics and dispatchers. The transportation industry has more than 300,000 opportunities available in the US today. Oklahoma City is a major transportation hub.

Nancy Simoneau is the event coordinator. "This is such an exciting career opportunity. We have some of the biggest names in the industry exhibiting. Stevens Trucking for example is one of the top companies that offers paid training for Drivers. These employers are looking for local, regional and OTR Drivers as well as Owner Operators. This is a great opportunity to come and talk to multiple recruiters in one setting," she said.

Forbe's Magazine recently reported that the transportation industry represents the greatest employment opportunity in the country today and salaries have never been higher.

"It is a common misconception that jobs in this industry are tough to get and all driving jobs are OTR or long haul. While there are a number of good positions in the OTR category and many candidates find that appealing, there are also just as many local driving jobs and positions in support services," noted Sela Rodriguez, Vice-President at USTruckerjobs.com, a sponsor of the event.

The Career Fair will be held at the Plaza Mayor at the Crossroads of I 35 and I 240 in Oklahoma City from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.

Kristi Richter is now in the Gallery's Artist Showcase

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that artist Kristi Richter is their newest featured artist.

Jupiter, FL, USA (October 15, 2014) -- Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is extremely pleased to announce that artist Kristi Richter is their newest featured artist. Kristi will now be presented in the Gallery's Artist Showcase section for the next month.

Kristi Richter was born and grew up in Chicago and now resides in Nashville, Tennessee. Art has always been a priority, and she owes her zealous interest due to her grandfather, who was a professional commercial artist and had a studio in Chicago. Her mother was also an artist, so she inherited talent from both sides of the family.

Kristi followed an art curriculum through high school, but it was when she attended The American Academy of Art and Chicago Academy of Fine Arts respectively, that she really started to understand her potential and how to express it. Her studies introduced her to the many facets of art such as advertising, illustration, calligraphy, photography, scratchboard, abstract, design, charcoal drawing with live models, and color schemes. Over time, she was able to recognize her weaknesses and sought ways to improve them, and she solidified her strengths.

Kristi's favorite medium is acrylics because they blend easily, dry quickly and the colors are opulent and vibrant. Most of her work is done in acrylics and has included pet portraits, posters and advertisements that are animal-related. She has also written and illustrated a children's book about a dog which she would like to publish.

Kristi's definitive objective is to start a business exclusively doing pet portraits or a favorite wildlife creature rendered in acrylics, scratchboard, watercolor, abstract, and cartoon. She has designed a business card and advertising poster and her logo is "Kristi's Kritters". Kristi can be reached at keddywumpus@yahoo.com.

Cyber Security World Conference 2014 to Focus on Protecting Business Information Assets from Hackers

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com), forum that will bring the latest thinking from security experts to hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting enterprises' information assets.

New York City, NY, USA (October 14, 2014) -- Cyber security is no longer a term to ignore for neither individuals nor corporations. The daily activities of all Americans, the country's economic prominence and global security rely on a safe and resilient cyberspace. Yet the number of cyber-attacks has increased dramatically over the last years, exposing confidential personal and business data, disrupting critical operations, and imposing high costs on the economy overall.

Just recently, J.P. Morgan Chase, America's largest bank with $2.39 trillion in assets, announced that about 76 million households and 7 million of small-business customers had been affected by a cybersecurity attack in one of the most sweeping disclosed global breaches. The bank said the unknown attackers stole customers' contact information, which included names, email addresses, phone numbers and addresses, affected an amount equivalent to two-thirds of American households.

A brief walk down memory lane of some the biggest recent cyber-attacks now include Adobe Systems, Automated Data Processing, Citigroup, E*Trade Financial, Fidelity Investments, Home Depot, HSBC, Nasdaq OMX, Neiman Marcus, Target and Wal-mart. It is not unlikely to consider that the information of every American has already been compromised in any of these publicly disclosed attacks.

Golden Networking's Cyber Security World Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.CyberSecurityWorldConference.com) will provide a platform for information security authorities and innovative service providers to distil their latest thinking for hundreds of senior executives focused on protecting today's enterprises. Cyber security experts will discuss topics such as protecting individuals and companies against cyber-attacks, biometrics as the future of security, risks brought by mobile computing, and protecting corporate and national infrastructure against foreign attacks.

Topics that Cyber Security World Conference 2014 will discuss include:

Cyber Security Megatrends Security Professionals can't Ignore Today
Designing and Managing Effective Information Security Programs
Is Biometrics the Key to Personal and Corporate Security?
How Hackers Really Operate to Obtain Financial Data
Key Considerations about Security in the Internet of Things Age
Strengthening the Security of Industry-wide Technology Infrastructure
Cyber Security and its Role in the Overall Security of the United States
