T5 Begins Construction on Silicon Forest's Most Advanced Wholesale Colocation Data Center to Accommodate Growing Demand for Business-critical Computing in the Pacific Northwest.

Hillsboro, OR, USA (September 16, 2014) -- T5 Data Centers™, innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments for any enterprise, today announced that the company has broken ground on T5@Portland, a two building wholesale colocation data center campus in suburban Portland. The company is also pleased to announce that a Fortune 100 company has already leased T5@Portland's first building.

T5@Portland is the first purpose-built, state-of-the-art data center campus to be constructed in the Silicon Forest. The new data center campus will consist of two separate buildings; one of which has already been pre-leased. The second building will be a 110,000 square foot, nine (9) critical megawatt data center and pre-leasing is already underway for this facility. The T5@Portland data centers should be ready for occupancy in early summer 2015.

Like T5's entire portfolio of data centers, T5@Portland's facilities are purpose-built and offer server-ready IT solutions capable of housing multiple independent data center tenants. T5@Portland is being constructed to LEED Silver specification, and will take advantage of the coastal Pacific Northwest climate to offset cooling costs and maximize power usage effectiveness (PUE) of the data centers. The T5@Portland data centers will also have extremely reliable power from two redundant power feeds into the facility and are being designed as high-performance, highly efficient, seismic secure, purpose-built data centers.

"We have built a national reputation for delivering high-quality data centers that provide superior reliability," said Aaron Wangenheim, Chief Marketing Officer for T5 Data Centers, "and this project is another great example of that philosophy. T5@Portland meets all the criteria that enterprise customers are looking for - purpose built performance, high resiliency and low cost. T5's strategy is to continue to build the best data centers in the best locations."

In addition to its technical specification, T5@Portland tenants will be able to take advantage of the favorable business and economic climate of Oregon, and specifically the City of Hillsboro. The area offers a number of economic incentives, including tax exemptions to stimulate e-commerce and technology companies, including significant sales and property tax benefits. With the combination of low-cost infrastructure, attractive economic incentives, flexible control over customer operational space, and guaranteed power, T5@Portland promises to be one of the most attractive corporate data center colocation options in the Pacific Northwest.

T5@Portland is one of seven sites across the United States within the T5 Data Centers portfolio, all designed with the same attention to reliability and service.

Smart Regulation Crucial for Growth of High-frequency Trading in Singapore, says Expert Edgar Perez

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global expert, author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, "How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets 'RIGGED' by Wall Street's 'Flash Boys', High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools".

New York, NY, USA (September 16, 2014) -- Wall Street's biggest high-frequency trading spokespeople are taking more fire lately from proactive regulators seeking to eliminate "abuses" in the controversial HFT markets. For instance, one HFT group that executes stock orders on high-speed platforms is trying to enlist experienced Washington players to defend its practices in the corridors of power.

Regulators are circling the wagons indeed. BATS Global Markets is said to be nearing a regulatory settlement over allegations it unfairly favored certain high-speed customers. This follows the abrupt departure last month of its CEO, Bill O'Brien, of CNBC fame. At the same time, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and the SEC are pressing forward as some of the biggest dark-pool operators, including Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse and Barclays, are caught in the crossfire.

According to Mr. Edgar Perez, sophisticated regulation is necessary in Asia to avoid controversies as the ones mentioned above. Mr. Perez is the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, "How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets 'RIGGED' by Wall Street's 'Flash Boys', High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools" (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com). This seminar covers the latest research currently available and reveals how high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil. The "flash crash", the suspended BATS IPO, the botched Facebook IPO, Knight Capital's trading malfunction and Nasdaq's Flash Freeze are just a few of the milestones in the history of high-frequency trading that will be dissected with participants.

Knightmare on Wall Street, the fascinating story of Knight Capital put together by course director Edgar Perez, was the most favorably reviewed Kindle edition book on Amazon in 2013, with an average rating of 5 out of five stars. Knight Capital had seen its fortunes change as U.S. regulators made a series of changes in the structure of financial markets and computers were progressively expanding their share of trading. The Flash Crash, the notorious 1,000 point drop of the DJIA on May 6, 2010 (the largest one-day point decline in history), illustrated how market structure problems could almost instantaneously cascade from one market participant to the rest.

Mr. Perez is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert and speaker in the specialized areas of algorithmic and high-frequency trading. He is also author of The Speed Traders, An Insider's Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, published in English, Chinese and Bahasa Indonesia. He contributes to The New York Times, UltraHighFrequencyTrading.com and China's International Finance News and Sina Finance.

Chinese E-commerce Juggernaut Alibaba Set to Boost IPO Price Despite High-frequency Trading Concerns

Edgar Perez, former McKinsey and IBM consultant, is a global expert, author of The Speed Traders, Knightmare on Wall Street, and the course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, "How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets 'RIGGED' by Wall Street's 'Flash Boys', High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools".

New York, NY, USA (September 16, 2014) -- China's biggest e-commerce company plans to increase the top end of a marketed price range to just below $70, from $66 previously. According to Reuters, Alibaba worried about Nasdaq's ability to handle their $21 billion IPO, since the exchange botched Facebook's market debut two years ago. Nasdaq tried to persuade Alibaba that it had fixed the problem but it is not clear whether they were swayed. One source said that Alibaba eventually was satisfied that Nasdaq had solved the issue and chose NYSE because its overall pitch was better. Another said Nasdaq executives believed that Alibaba decided that the possibility of a botched IPO, however small, outweighed the possible benefits of being in the index.

Nasdaq systems buckled under the tremendous volume of orders on the first day of trading in Facebook's shares in 2012, leading to hours of delay. In its current presentation to Alibaba, Nasdaq detailed the steps it had taken to prevent another Facebook-style glitch said. The exchange has said it responded to Facebook by putting extra safeguards in place, creating new positions within the company to improve communications with the industry and regulators when errors occur, and establishing an engineering team to monitor and analyze daily performance.

At the end, Alibaba chose NYSE; according to Mr. Edgar Perez, course director of The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore, "How Banks, Hedge and Mutual Funds and Brokers Battle Markets 'RIGGED' by Wall Street's 'Flash Boys', High-frequency Trading, Exchanges and Dark Pools", that is the reason why Alibaba shouldn't worry about high-frequency trading, as NYSE systems have demonstrated time-tested resilience in the IPO process.

The Speed Traders Workshop 2014 Singapore (http://www.thespeedtradersworkshop.com), covers the latest research currently available and reveals how high-frequency trading players are operating in global markets and driving the development of electronic trading at breakneck speeds from the U.S. and Europe to Japan, India, and Brazil.

Tamara Campeau is Gallery's New Featured Artist

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Canadian wildlife artist Tamara Campeau is the gallery's newest featured artist.

Jupiter, FL, USA (September 15, 2014) -- Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that Canadian wildlife artist Tamara Campeau is the gallery's newest featured artist. Tamara will now be featured and be widely promoted by the gallery.

Tamara Campeau was originally born in the sunshine state of Florida. Not too long after she immigrated to Quebec, Canada with her mother. What Tamara loved most in life was animals and art. Till this day, these two loves are still very present in her life.

Tamara attained a technical degree in Illustration & Design in 2008. During and following her college studies Tamara would do commissioned paintings which consisted mostly of dogs, cats and portraiture of people. In terms, of personal work, Tamara enjoys depicting nature's greatest creation, wildlife. In general she is very observant of everyday life where then she tries to incorporate this in her work.

She has been painting for 10 years, at first in acrylic, but she has now been painting primarily in oil for the past seven years. When bringing life to her creations she emphasizes detail and textures to draw on the emotions of her audience through the eyes of her subjects. Tamara considers herself to be a self-taught painter because throughout her studies, painting was not really taught to the students and even then it was only in acrylic.

Tamara's artworks has achieved special recognition and awards of merit from international art gallery contests. Tamara inspiration is fuelled by the work of Canadian artist Robert Bateman and illustrator David Colman. Her website: http://www.tcampeaupaulson.com.

Solar Power World Ranks Rosendin Electric Number 3 in List of Top 400 Solar Contractors

Rosendin Electric Continues to Rise in the Annual Rankings of the Best Solar Contractors in North America.

San Jose, Calif. (September 13, 2014) -- Rosendin Electric, the nation's largest private electrical contractor and an employee-owned company, has earned the third place ranking in Solar Power World's list of the Top 400 Solar Contractors in North America. The publication also ranked Rosendin Electric number one among the top 100 solar contractors in California; number two among the top 50 solar specialists in engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC); and number three among the top 25 utility solar contractors.

Solar Power World compiles an annual list that ranks solar contractors throughout North America based on a variety of criteria, including number of megawatts installed for the year and specific markets served (e.g. utility, residential, or commercial). To date, Rosendin Electric installed solar systems capable of generating 478 megawatts (MW) to make the company number three in North America.

In congratulating Rosendin Electric, Frank Andorka, Editorial Director of Solar Power World, wrote, "Only a tiny fraction of the nation's companies have demonstrated such remarkably consistent excellence, particularly in the difficult economic environment of the past few years. This achievement truly puts you in rarified company."

Rosendin Electric's Solar Division specializes in installing utility-grade and distributed generation (DG) solar projects. The company designs and builds mid- to large-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, including substation design and installation, prefabrication, energy storage systems, and ancillary systems. Rosendin Electric's Solar Division has installed PC systems for commercial, hospitals, schools, universities, and government facilities as well as utility-grade solar farms. Project sizes range from 100 kW to more than 200 MW. And Rosendin Electric performs more than 85 percent of its own EPC, which mitigates risk for investors and makes contracts more viable for financing since the company maintains total control over solar project deliverables.

"Ranking number three out of the top 400 North American contractors is a real milestone for our solar group," said David Lincoln, Director of Solar Operations for Rosendin Electric. "We are now installing utility-grade solar systems across North America, as well as in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Our growing reputation and EPC capabilities continue to bring in new clients who see the value of having Rosendin Electric on their team."

About Rosendin Electric

Rosendin Electric, Inc., headquartered in San Jose, California, is an employee-owned electrical engineering, power and communications provider and is the largest privately held electrical contractor in the United States.

Skybox Datacenters and T5 Facilities Management Partner to Bring Top Tier Data Center Operations to Skybox Houston One

Skybox Datacenters Teams with T5 Facilities Management to Launch Turnkey Data Center Services to Companies in the Houston Energy Corridor.

Houston, TX, USA (September 9, 2014) -- Skybox Datacenters™, a Dallas-based data center developer, today announced it has formed a strategic partnership with T5 Facilities Management (T5FM). Through this strategic partnership, Skybox will offer move-in ready wholesale data centers in mid-market locations operated by the same team that operates T5 Data Centers'™ national portfolio of wholesale data centers. Construction on the first data center initiative, Skybox Houston One, is expected to be completed in November and it will be commissioned in January 2015.

Skybox Datacenters recently broke ground on its Skybox Houston One facility, an 86,960-square-foot purpose-built data center with four independent data halls; the first wholesale data center to serve the Houston Energy Corridor. The new Skybox Houston One facility offers dedicated data halls at 1.2 to 2.4 MW each with lower overall total cost of operations than retail data centers. Additionally, Skybox uniquely offers tenants the ability to procure and negotiate their own power contracts directly with the provider of their choice. Under the partnership agreement, Skybox will serve as landlord and T5FM will provide facilities support and operations management for Skybox Houston One.

"Skybox and T5 have very similar philosophies as to how to best serve data center customers, and through this partnership we can bring T5's facilities management expertise to new customers in mid-market regions," said Mike Casey, COO of T5. "The expertise and protocols that existing T5 customers rely on will adapt quite well to Skybox's clientele."

T5FM offers comprehensive on-site data center management; the same comprehensive facilities management that T5 uses in its data centers in Atlanta, Colorado, Dallas, Los Angeles, New York, North Carolina, and Portland. T5FM will apply the same kind of best practices used in all of T5's data centers, including policies and procedures to mitigate risk and eliminate operational concerns with an emphasis on safety, training, and communications.

"The strategic partnership between Skybox Datacenters and T5FM will bring the best data center management expertise available to our customers," said Rob Morris, Managing Partner, Skybox Datacenters. "This partnership allows us to focus on our core development business while knowing that the T5FM team will keep operations running smoothly. It's a great marriage."

Using this wholesale data center business model, Skybox will lease self-contained data center halls to customers, each with its own dedicated mechanical and electrical infrastructure, so customers retain total operational control. An on-site T5FM team will provide infrastructure support. Skybox Houston One is specifically designed to cater to the needs of oil and gas, healthcare, and other large corporations in the region to meet their business-critical, high-performance, ultra low latency computing needs.

The Think Pink Challenge; Reel Men Fish Pink

Eposeidon Outdoor Adventure, Inc. kicks off a campaign to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research.

Hempstead, Long Island, NY (September 9, 2014) -- Eposeidon, Inc.'s KastKing Division, the makers of high quality affordable braided fishing line, has announced a campaign to promote awareness and raise funds for breast cancer research and early detection.

KastKing will donate all net profits from every sale of their KastKing Pink Braided Fishing Line in all sizes through their website http://www.eposeidon.com during the month of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Pink is the official color for breast cancer awareness.

KastKing's will track all purchases of their KastKing Pink Braided Fishing Line through their website http://www.eposeidon.com. At the end of October the amount will be donated to fund breast cancer research. The company offers free shipping on orders over $20.

KastKing's program will be promoted through Social Media with a Think Pink Challenge. The campaign slogan is -- "The Think Pink Challenge; Reel Men Fish Pink." Members of Team Eposeidon, the company's angler support staff, which has male and female members, will publicly challenge at least 3 other anglers to "Spool it with Pink" and encourage them to challenge others either through Youtube or Facebook posts, or both. Eposeidon's Think Pink Challenge will begin ramping up in September, begin October 1st and run through October 31. Eposeidon wants to encourage men to support the women in their lives with early detection through mammograms and doctor's visits.

According to breastcancer.org, "Mammograms don't prevent breast cancer, but they can save lives by finding breast cancer as early as possible. For example, mammograms have been shown to lower the risk of dying from breast cancer by 35% in women over the age of 50."

"Many lives and families have been touched by breast cancer," says Tom Gahan, Marketing Director at Eposeidon. "This is our chance to reach out to the angling community, which mostly consists of men, to make a difference. The campaign encourages male anglers to 'man up' and load their fishing reels with pink fishing line for a great cause. We're hoping women persuade their guys to 'Fish Pink' and in turn, men will support and encourage other women in their lives to have a mammogram and look after their health and inspire their male friends to also spool up with pink line."

Pink fishing line has a practical feature. It becomes "invisible" at relatively shallow depths as pink is in the red spectrum, which is the first color to disappear in the water column. KastKing braided lines are offered in 10 lb. through 150 lb. test.

"October, breast cancer awareness month, also marks the beginning of the traditional holiday shopping season, says Eposeidon's CEO Tate Cui. "Some may wish to purchase pink line as a gift during October and carry the awareness forward to next season. Next spring it may generate some conversations about how people can help with breast cancer, encourage their family members to be tested, or increase their awareness or donate. We hope to reach thousands of anglers. We are proud to support breast cancer research."

To accomplish these worthy goals, the country requires thousands of storage tanks and miles of new pipelines which are expected to ring $640 billion through 2035.

Golden Networking's MLP Investing Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.mlpinvestingconference.com), "How the Kinder Morgan Deal will usher in a Golden Age for MLPs Tapping into the Great American Energy Boom", will review the current landscape for MLPs and discuss why the next decade should be the golden years of energy infrastructure investing. MLPs, sponsors, and investors will analyze recent developments and future opportunities and challenges for this asset class.

Topics that MLP Investing Conference 2014 will discuss include:
The REIT syndrome: increasing institutional ownership in the MLP asset class
The biggest risk: what about if oil prices fell to $80 a barrel and stayed there
Implications of Kinder Morgan Inc.'s deal to consolidate its energy infrastructure MLPs
Barbarians at the gate: a new round of deal making for the pipeline industry

MLP Investing Conference 2014 is produced by Golden Networking, the premier networking community for business and technology executives, entrepreneurs and investors. Panelists, speakers and sponsors are invited to contact Golden Networking by sending an email to information@goldennetworking.com.

How the Kinder Morgan Deal will usher in a Golden Age for MLPs in the Great American Energy Boom

Building off of the momentum of past successful conferences, Golden Networking brings MLP Investing Conference 2014 (www.mlpinvestingconference.com) to New York City, "How the Kinder Morgan Deal will usher in a Golden Age for MLPs Tapping into the Great American Energy Boom".

New York, NY, USA (September 2, 2014) -- Golden Networking's MLP Investing Conference 2014 New York City (http://www.mlpinvestingconference.com), "How the Kinder Morgan Deal will usher in a Golden Age for MLPs Tapping into the Great American Energy Boom", will review the current landscape for MLPs and discuss why the next decade should be the golden years of energy infrastructure investing. MLPs, sponsors, and investors will analyze recent developments and future opportunities and challenges for this asset class.

According to Barron's, energy-transport companies like Kinder Morgan have historically put their pipeline assets into MLPs to garner higher valuations. MLPs, which pass their profits directly to investors, untaxed, typically trade at big premiums to income-producing securities like utilities, telecom companies, and cable-TV operators. Kinder Morgan's new strategy reverses the MLP advantage, raising the question of how the stock should now be valued. The company, headed by co-founder and CEO Rich Kinder, would like investors to value it based on its lofty dividend yield.

Kinder Morgan Inc.'s recent $70 billion consolidation of its Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) runs counter to the industry trend of spinning off pipelines and oil terminals into tax-advantaged partnerships that funnel cash to investors. However, by simplifying its empire's corporate structure, Kinder is lowering borrowing costs, freeing up cash for bigger dividend payouts and unifying the company under a single stock that can be used as currency to buy competitors focused already on building the energy infrastructure of the future.

The move signals a new round of deal making for the pipeline industry, which has seen growth rocket in the past five years as the boom has spread across North America. Potential acquisition targets for firms such as Kinder, Enterprise and Energy Transfer Partners now include more than 120 energy MLPs that have a combined enterprise value of $900 billion. That is set to grow rapidly as less volatile cash payouts that beat debt yields are sought and massive new investments are made in the burgeoning oil and gas fields of Texas, North Dakota and Pennsylvania.

Topics that MLP Investing Conference 2014 will discuss include:
The REIT syndrome: increasing institutional ownership in the MLP asset class
The biggest risk: what about if oil prices fell to $80 a barrel and stayed there
Implications of Kinder Morgan Inc.'s deal to consolidate its energy infrastructure MLPs
Barbarians at the gate: a new round of deal making for the pipeline industry

Defining wellness has been a challenge to advocates, academics and businesses but even more formidable has been facilitating higher levels of individual, social and national well-being.

Wellness Travel in America: Shaping Health, Businesses & Economy provides unprecedented data on wellness travel in the United States, examining a broad spectrum of stakeholders and confluences between sectors affecting both population and economic health. A culmination of U.S. consumer survey data and extensive research across multiple industries, the report can be used to understand how wellness travel can play a significant role in disease prevention, workplace wellness, vacation policy development, tourism development and destination marketing.

Over 60 tables and figures are contained in this comprehensive 90-page document. The report includes an extensive review of wellness trends, workplace policies, and proprietary data collection and analysis of US consumers interested in healthy travel resulting in a data-driven profile marketers can use to promote their brand.

Epidemic levels of stress, obesity, sleep problems and lack of balance between home and work are drivers to the surging interest in wellness, affecting the way businesses operate. While wellness has garnered attention over the last several years, there has been very little discussion regarding what wellness travel means to U.S. consumers, businesses and the travel industry.

Concepts such as wellness vacations, healthy hotels, and business related wellness perks are on the rise as organizations seek to contain healthcare costs and drive volume and profits.

This report can be used to:

Better integrate wellness concepts in leisure travel and business
Gain understanding of wellness travel consumers, their interests, perceptions and needs as well as motivations, decisions and preferences in order to
Better conceptualize wellness tourism as away to mitigate health, social and environmental problems related to an urbanized, industrialized world
Improve, innovate and create travel products and services to positively impact health, happiness, productivity and ultimately strengthen America's economy
Promote healthy lifestyle vacation travel as an engine for economic growth, personal enrichment and better work/life balance
