Leading cyber security experts from across the USA will gather in Sacramento later this year for the 4th Annual Industrial Control Cyber Security USA Summit, which will discuss how the US can protect itself from the very real threat of cyber attacks such as the latest discovery Crash Override or "Industroyer," an advanced malware designed specifically to disrupt industrial control systems, which in December 2016 left Kiev in darkness.
Sacramento, California (PRWEB) August 14, 2017
Taking place on 3rd-4th October 2017 at the Sutter Club in Sacramento California, the conference will see leaders from across the energy and government sectors gather with cyber security experts to create a common voice in protecting critical national infrastructure. Organisers are offering Critical National Infrastructure Operators such as Utilities, Transport, Chemical, Nuclear, Water, Oil and Gas and Automotive complimentary passes to help move the industry forward.
Key speakers will include:
James Nesbitt, Founder of the Cyber Senate said:
“Recent times have seen several notable cybersecurity breaches globally. The energy industries in the Ukraine, Norway and Saudi have all been well publicised, but there continue to be many that are not reported to such an extent, and the industry are having to defend their assets on a daily basis from evolving threats. Cyber weapons such as Crash Override, Stuxnet, Havex and Black Energy all pose an ongoing threat.
“Set against this context, this conference will bring together leaders from key energy sectors and cyber security subject matter experts to discuss how they can work together to ensure the safety, reliability and stability of our critical national infrastructure by reducing areas of vulnerability, detecting threats early and putting the right plans in place to mitigate the damage caused by any security breaches. Events like this facilitate the information sharing required for the industry to collectively respond.”

Wiivv is invited to join Lululemon Whitespace (Advanced R&D) to demonstrate how revolutionary custom-fit products are now possible, thanks to advances in technology, design, engineering and manufacturing
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) August 14, 2017
Wiivv Wearables Inc., a Vancouver and San Diego-based consumer technology company that creates custom-fit footwear and apparel through its award-winning app, is pleased to have been invited to join Lululemon (NASDAQ: LULU) Whitespace (Advanced R&D) in presenting the future of custom-fit products at the 2017 SeaWheeze Half Marathon in Vancouver, BC on August 11, 2017.
At an interactive showcase hosted by Lululemon Whitespace (Advanced R&D) and exclusive to SeaWheeze, Wiivv offered over 13,000 guests and the public an opportunity to holistically experience what is now possible through body data capture and how custom is revolutionizing what we wear, now and in the future. Custom products feel, function and fit in an entirely new way, so guests were invited to experience tactile environments and have their feet individually scanned and analyzed with Wiivv’s proprietary technology.
Says Jordan Goldfarb, Lululemon’s Director of Whitespace (Advanced R&D) Strategy, “We’re putting on a showcase that demonstrates what precision engineering of movement and sensation can mean to the guest. To do this, we are bringing in friends and innovative brands to come on this journey with us. Wiivv is a friend and locally-based tech startup that’s doing awesome work in bringing custom and function to the foot, and we’re exploring interesting ways to potentially bring these rich experiences to the guest.”

Wiivv Insoles are biomechanically designed to relieve plantar fasciitis, foot pain and foot fatigue. Wiivv also recently completed a record-breaking Kickstarter campaign for their Custom Fit Sandals (the most-funded 3D printed product ever) and will be the first custom-fit footwear to be manufactured at scale.
Wiivv’s award-winning foot capture app for iOS and Android is behind the Wiivv Insole and Sandal’s revolutionary customization. Using over 200 data points on each foot captured by the Wiivv app and any smartphone camera, Wiivv’s cutting-edge technology allows computer algorithms to pinpoint the unique length, width and arch height of each person’s unique feet, creating insoles and footwear with an accurate, customized fit.
“Exploring and dreaming up something special to showcase with our friends at Whitespace for SeaWheeze has been fun and very rewarding for all involved,” says Shamil Hargovan, Wiivv’s CEO and Co-Founder. “Lululemon is known for its leadership in product design and development with biomechanics, fit and feel; we’re fully committed to those principles as well. Everything we do is about helping people add active, meaningful years to their lives. SeaWheeze is an iconic annual event that gives us a fantastic opportunity to engage with Lululemon guests one-on-one, and to introduce how body-perfect products can help support them in being their unique and best selves.”
SeaWheeze is Lululemon’s sixth annual half-marathon and Festival in its home city, featuring warm-up and warm-down yoga sessions; an artisan market; a Lululemon SeaWheeze Showcase store; and a waterfront course along the breathtaking Vancouver seawall.

New York, NY (PRWEB) August 15, 2017
Organizers today announced plans and unveiled the website for Global Goals Week 2017– a collective effort to maximize the value of events and activations held during UN General Assembly week and focused on driving progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals. This year’s Global Goals Week will be held 16-23 September, with events and activations taking place in New York and around the world, all of which will be connected in social media conversations using the common hash tag #GlobalGoals.
Global Goals Week was originally piloted last year by organizing partners Project Everyone, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and the United Nations Foundation. This year, more than a dozen new partners have joined the effort, including the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, World Economic Forum, Sustainable Development Solutions Effort, Skoll Foundation, Concordia, UN Global Compact, and other UN agencies and departments, positioning the week as a strong platform for collective action in support of the SDGs, maximizing the impact of a variety of events, public activations, and digital surges that are all designed to raise awareness and spur progress toward achievement of the global goals.

Amina J. Mohammed, UN Deputy Secretary-General, said, “Progress on the Sustainable Development Goals, the ambitious plan adopted by world leaders in 2015, is a promise for people and planet, that requires concerted action across all sectors. The vision of Global Goals Week is to ensure continued attention and momentum for the SDGs at the highest levels and to inspire unique partnerships and collaboration across all sectors. These events will help spur partnerships and your action in support of delivering the SDGs on the ground.”
Richard Curtis, Writer, Campaigner, and Project Everyone Founder, said, “We’ve got under 5,000 days left to reach the Global Goals – and that can’t be done unless we continue to press world leaders to keep their promises and inspire people all over the world to act. All of the activities during UNGA remind leaders of their promises, energize today’s excellent activist generation, and puts the long-term optimistic, practical vision of the Goals in the spotlight – the definitive plan to end extreme poverty, fight injustice and inequality and defeat climate change.”
Achim Steiner, UNDP Administrator, said, “Global Goals Week is an opportunity both to celebrate the Sustainable Development Goals and progress made so far toward achieving them, as well as to look to the future and all the work that still needs to be done. UNDP stands ready to continue that work on this very ambitious, but achievable, agenda.”
Kathy Calvin, President & CEO of the UN Foundation, said, “The Sustainable Development Goals present both a bold vision for a better future and a challenge for collective action to achieve the goals. Global Goals Week is a response to that challenge – creating opportunities for partners to work together to drive change.”

Newly released app streamlines lottery pool gameplay, makes tracking played numbers easy
(PRWEB) August 15, 2017
Lottery number tracking and pool manager app, LottoBug, is now available to the public on the Apple App Store.
LottoBug redefines the way lottery players track their played numbers, form pools, and monitor their winning tickets from a single dashboard. The app can track ticket numbers, no matter what state they’re purchased from.
The app’s powerful notification system keeps players appraised of both their individual tickets and tickets that are part of a pool. Alerts are dispatched to users’ devices within minutes of Mega Millions and Powerball drawings, drastically lowering the chances of millions of dollars going unclaimed.
“LottoBug is a way to put power back into players’ hands,” says LottoBug creator Dawn Harder. “Lotteries benefit when winners don’t claim their rightful prize. This app levels the playing field, giving players more control over their tickets.”
The app also features fundamental Facebook integration, making it easy to create and maintain pools with Facebook friends and register ticket numbers. Upon winning, notifications are sent out to all users in the pool.
LottoBug was created to help lottery players easily track their numbers and avoid missing out on potentially millions of dollars in lost winnings. Too often, players buy several tickets, only to win but never claim their prizes. LottoBug is one of the first apps to tilt the odds back in the players’ favor.

Health care reporting company aiding new providers in MIPS transition, pursuing new tools and solutions
Madison, Wis. (PRWEB) August 15, 2017
Health care reporting company Physician Compass is expanding, taking on more customers and hiring additional employees while also developing healthcare technology solutions. The organization, founded by the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality and the Wisconsin Hospital Association, has been active in helping more than 8,000 providers make the transition from CMS’s Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) to the new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).
Since its founding two years ago, Physician Compass has grown progressively larger, expanding its market share in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Southeast regions of the country, where it uses reporting tools to help providers improve care and the quality of their performance. The company will soon be enhancing its reporting solutions to benchmark quality results and provide physicians a comprehensive analysis of their quality metrics.
“Our reporting tools helps providers take advantage of value-based payment incentives and puts them in the best position to provide high-quality care,” said Product Director Chris Kleine. “We work with all different sized organizations—from healthcare systems to small physician groups—to ensure easy reporting, maximized payment incentives and quality excellence.”
The company has evolved over the past year to account for the transition from PQRS to MIPS, and is fully equipped to assist its customers in transitioning to quality-based reporting. It already has brought on several new providers and expects more as the 2018 deadline to transition fully to MIPS approaches. Physician Compass created a “MIPS 101” summary to simplify the change and offers tools to streamline the reporting process.
Physician Compass also is physically expanding, and is preparing to move into a new space, its third in two years. The company continues to grow and bring on new employees to help handle an ever-increasing client base.
“We want to be able to help the largest number of providers, and we’re taking the steps towards expansion that will allow us to handle reporting at a much higher volume,” stated Kleine. “We’re going to continue pushing boundaries and creating new solutions that make our customers’ lives as easy as possible.”
In addition to the changes to its services and the expansion of its facility, Physician Compass is preparing to roll out a new application for reporting. This technology solution is aimed at further simplifying provider reporting. More news will be coming soon about this exciting development.
Meet the Physician Compass team at the MGMA 2017 Annual Conference—Booth #1228—in Anaheim, CA on Oct. 8-11. Providers interested in learning more can contact Kleine at ckleine(at)physiciancompass(dot)org, or visit physiciancompass.org.

The class action was brought by Blumenthal Nordrehaug and Bhowmik against the on-demand security guard services company on behalf of a California employee who alleges various California Labor Code and Fair Credit Reporting Act Violations
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2017
The Sacramento employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug and Bhowmik filed a proposed class action Complaint against Guardnow, Inc. for allegedly failing to provide their California employees with the legally required thirty minute uninterrupted meal periods and allegedly failing to pay all overtime due to their California employees. Additionally, the Complaint asserts claims on behalf of a nationwide class alleging Defendant violated the Fair Credit Reporting Act in conducting of background checks on their employees. The Guardnow, Inc. lawsuit, Case No. 1:17-cv-00998-DAD-EPG is currently pending in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California. A copy of the Complaint can be read by clicking here.
The lawsuit filed against Guardnow, Inc. claims that the company failed to accurately "record and pay Plaintiff and other California Class Members for missed meal and rest breaks, and also overtime." Under the California Labor Code, an employee who is classified as non-exempt and is paid on an hourly basis must be paid overtime wages for time worked in excess of eight hours in a workday and time worked over forty hours in a workweek. The Complaint also alleges that the employees working in California for Defendant were not always able to take their thirty minute uninterrupted meal breaks before their fifth hour of work. California law requires employers to provide their non-exempt employees paid on an hourly basis with thirty minute meal periods before the employee works five hours. The penalty for failing to provide adequate meal breaks is one hour of pay under the California Labor Code.
Additionally, the class action lawsuit also alleges claims on behalf of a nationwide class under the Fair Credit Reporting Act stating that the company failed to adequately disclose and obtain authorization to conduct background checks on their employees. As alleged in the complaint, "The inclusion of the liability release clause in DEFENDANT's authorization forms invalidates the purported consent and also triggers statutory damages under the FCRA in the amount of up to $1,000 for each applicant that DEFENDANT obtained a consumer report without a facially valid authorization, as well as punitive damages, equitable relief, and attorneys' fees and costs."
For more information about the class action lawsuit filed against Guardnow, Inc. please call (866) 771-7099 to speak to one of the attorneys at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug and Bhowmik.

Your next hospital visit could be shorter thanks to new technology, which automates booking non-emergency medical transportation.
YARMOUTH PORT, Mass. (PRWEB) August 15, 2017
Acuity Link, a technology company that assists hospitals and medical transport providers through automation of non-emergency transport bookings, officially announced the availability of their new cloud-based software Tuesday.
The software created by Acuity Link is a comprehensive discharge workflow tool allowing health care institutions to better manage discharges by innovating the process of booking non-emergency transportation. This helps healthcare institutions to run more efficiently and dramatically improves patient experience, clinical outcome and bed utilization.
Many hospitals worldwide have increasingly struggled with patient discharge workflow and throughput process. This has been affected by higher demands in patient care, no tools to manage medical transportation providers and an outdated system for ordering non-emergency transport for patients.
“The process for ordering a non-emergency ambulance and discharging a patient has essentially been stuck in the 1970’s and was booked almost entirely by phone, until now,” said Alex Theoharidis, CEO of Acuity Link. “Prior to our software, hospital administrators and clinicians would need to pick up the phone, potentially call several non-emergency transport companies, and relay information that could easily be misunderstood or documented improperly, which required valuable and lengthy periods of time from clinicians and medical transportation dispatch personnel.”
The average time it took to book a non-emergency transport was 12-14 minutes per call, and after that, the patient would often have to wait more than an hour to be transported.
Once Acuity Link is adopted by a hospital, administrators and clinicians can now request, schedule and track patient non-emergency medical transportation directly from a web-browser in real time. Ambulance crews are connected to the hospital’s Acuity Link system via smartphone or tablet. From the Acuity Link mobile application, crews can respond quickly to incoming transport requests and receive clinical details and all pertinent information pertaining to the assigned transport.
Additionally, with Acuity Link’s geo-location technology, those performing the discharge of a patient are alerted when the transport is responding and arriving.
More than just providing an efficient non-emergency transportation booking process, the software also provides extremely detailed analytics for healthcare executives and medical transport providers, which allows them to understand trends and make informed decisions around cost saving policies and procedures.
“Acuity Link takes the guess work out of managing non-emergency medical transportation and provides valuable resource planning tools for health care institutions,” said Theoharidis. “This data is something ambulance service providers and hospitals have never had before, and it is significantly impacting patient throughput, clinical outcomes and bed utilization in a positive fashion.”
Acuity Link was founded in 2015 by a seasoned team of emergency medical service professionals. They experienced first-hand, the frustrations in the inefficiencies of the current system and began developing a solution for the industry. After years of development and product testing, Acuity Link’s team expects the software to become the industry standard for health care organizations and medical transport providers to communicate with each other.
“We’ve built a low-cost tool that can be seamlessly implemented into any health care organization and improve operations. The transparency and efficiency our software delivers through reporting and analytics helps hospitals, transport companies and most importantly, patients. In hospitals where Acuity Link is being used, patients are no longer waiting hours to be discharged to other facilities, which means hospitals increase proper utilization of clinicians and their beds. This results in better patient care and cost savings all at the same time,” said Theoharidis.
Acuity Link is fully compliant with HIPPA laws and provides various levels of encryption, which meet or exceed industry requirements for protecting patient information.
