    Blumenthal Nordrehaug and Bhowmik filed a class action lawsuit against the mortgage banking company alleging that they failed to provide their workers meal and rest periods.

    San Diego, CA (PRWEB) September 25, 2017

    The San Diego employment law lawyers at Blumenthal, Nordrehaug and Bhowmik filed a proposed class action Complaint against Guild Mortgage Company 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. The Guild Mortgage Company lawsuit, Case No. 37-2017-00034799-CU-OE-CTL is currently pending in the San Diego County Superior Court for the State of California. A copy of the Complaint can be read by clicking here.

    The lawsuit filed against Guild Mortgage Company alleges that the company as a matter of corporate policy, practice and procedure, intentionally, knowingly and systematically failed to reimburse and indemnify its employees for required business expenses incurred by the employees in direct consequence of discharging their duties on behalf of Guild Mortgage Company. Under California Labor Code Section 2802, employers are required to indemnify employees for all expenses incurred in the course and scope of their employment.

    Additionally, the complaint further alleges Guild Mortgage Company committed acts of unfair competition in violation of the California Unfair Competition Law, Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §§ 17200, et seq. (the “UCL”), by engaging in a company-wide policy and procedure which failed to accurately record overtime worked by their employees.

    The Complaint also alleges that the employees working in California for Guild Mortgage Company 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.

    Blumenthal, Nordrehaug and Bhowmik is a California employment law firm with offices located in San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, Riverside and Los Angeles Counties that dedicates its practice to helping employees, fight back against unfair business practices, including violations of the California Labor Code and Fair Labor Standards Act.

    Gore introduces its new GORE™ Cable Protection Systems for packaging copper and fiber interconnects in civil aircraft applications.

    PLEINFELD, GERMANY (PRWEB) September 25, 2017

    W. L. Gore & Associates (Gore) introduces its new GORE™ Cable Protection Systems for packaging copper and fiber interconnects in civil aircraft applications. This extremely durable system meets the needs of aircraft OEMs and systems suppliers requiring more protection in compact systems for interconnects installed in high-density data transmission and in-flight entertainment (IFE) backbones.

    GORE™ Cable Protection Systems are engineered with crush- and abrasion-resistant materials that provide the highest level of durability and protection available on the market today. Copper wire and fiber optic cables (round and flat) can float freely within these cable systems without getting damaged during complex routing in cable runs and sharp edges in an airframe. Gore’s specialized design also allows installers to bend copper and fiber within the specification limit, generally without exceeding the minimum bend radius — eliminating over bending, breakage and failure. In addition, these new cable protection systems are considerably smaller and lighter weight with greater flexibility and a tighter bend radius for easy and rapid installation, ultimately reducing overall costs.

    “Our cable protection systems provide a great lightweight solution to protect high-performance interconnects required to enable today’s high-speed architecture and future designs,” said Jeremy Moore, Application Engineer for Gore’s Civil Aerospace Team.

    GORE™ Cable Protection Systems complement Gore’s wide variety of aerospace solutions, including high-speed data cables, high-frequency microwave/RF cable assemblies, aircraft sealants, and more. Gore’s broad catalog of aerospace solutions will be on display at the APEX (Airline Passenger Experience Association) Expo in Long Beach, California on September 25-28, Booth 1113.

    Two national nonprofits launch the Innovative Business Hiring Council 2020

    Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 25, 2017

    Two national nonprofits, Innovate+Educate (I+E) and Hope Street Group, today announced the launch of the Innovative Business Hiring Council 2020 (IBHC2020). This effort will build on the already strong relationship between the two organizations as well as their unified vision around shifting employer hiring, training and advancement strategies to focus on skills and competencies.

    The IBHC2020 will be a unique, employer-driven Council of companies across industries who are focused on shifting their talent acquisition and development models, with an emphasis on implementing competency-based solutions, sharing their findings with others, and receiving technical assistance from like-minded corporate partners. The Council will work with companies across the services (retail, hospitality, food service), healthcare, IT, cybersecurity and financial sectors to identify effective competency-based talent sourcing models and support these companies in shifting their practices.

    “The Council and our partnership with Hope Street Group is very exciting for Innovate+Educate,” stated Jamai Blivin, CEO of Innovate+Educate. “We know that competency-based hiring and advancement approaches ‘filter in’ talent for companies, rather than ‘filter out.’ Together with Hope Street Group, we can provide the framework, solutions and technical assistance to employers to enable this shift in talent strategies.”

    The impetus for IBHC2020 is the sustainability portion of a grant to I+E in 2016 from the Rockefeller Foundation. The grant was to support a community of employers around a framework assess, hire, train, advance. Innovate+Educate launched the IBHC in February 2017, which was comprised of business leaders who were responsible for developing and implementing the people strategy in top companies across industries. At the time, the group focused on identifying and leveraging innovative, competency-based learning and hiring solutions to improve economic mobility for candidates and incumbents and increase the hiring/selection ROI for employers. Several organizations that were a part of that first IBHC have agreed to continue their leadership roles and bring new companies to the Council, continuing the focus on hiring and talent development based on skills and competencies. The companies will continue to promote the strategies and outcomes that promote a more diverse workforce and positively impacts their people ROI. IBHC 2020 will consist of top Fortune 500 companies from retail, hospitality, healthcare, manufacturing, technology (IT) and financial services

    “As we look at effective ways to better match the skills needs of employers with a workforce that can meet those needs, this shift to competency-based talent sourcing is critical and gaining momentum,” said Martin Scaglione, President and CEO of Hope Street Group. “This partnership with Innovate+Educate provides a transformational opportunity to bring employers to the table to consider and advocate for competency-based approaches that are succeeding in meeting skills needs, strengthening workforce diversity and creating a career path for workers that offers greater economic opportunity for themselves and their families.”


    About Innovate+Educate:

    I+E is a national nonprofit implementing evidence-based, employer-led strategies to drive competency- based training and hiring for in-demand jobs. Their vision is to create multiple pathways to employment, and their focus is on industry driven solutions to education and employment.

    About Hope Street Group:

    Hope Street Group is a national non-profit focused on ensuring every American has access to economic opportunity through education, training and a career path that offers advancement and income growth.

    “24” service augments Securly’s AI approach with real-time monitoring by a “crisis team”.

    San Jose, California (PRWEB) September 25, 2017

    Securly Inc, the Silicon Valley-based student safety company announced today that it is expanding its real-time monitoring services to 24x7 human operations.

    In 2017, Securly furthered its “double-bottom line” mission of keeping kids safe online by introducing two free tools - Auditor for emails and Filter for Chromebooks. Within 4 months, Auditor has been implemented by hundreds of school districts to keep over 1 million students safe on Google Mail. In a span of just 2 months, over 700 districts have signed up to use Securly’s free Chrome extension, which provides IT Admins self-harm and bullying alerts across social media, and is an easy way to maintain CIPA compliance. These free users are in addition to the millions of paid student licenses that provide tech support and “any-device anywhere” filtering.

    Securly is known for developing artificial intelligence-based automation to flag online activity indicative of bullying, violence, self-harm and sexual predation. While these automated tools provide school personnel access to hitherto unknown insights, they still may not see an important alert until it is too late. “The reality is that troublesome activities do happen, but not always between the hours of 9am and 5pm. Securly wants to minimize any chance of oversight by adding trained humans back into the equation,” says co-founder/CEO Vinay Mahadik.

    To address these concerns and compensate for thinly-stretched school staff, Securly’s newest paid service is aptly named “24” and diligently monitored in real-time by real people in conjunction with Securly’s ever-expanding AI. While Filter 24 monitors a student’s activity on the web, social media, and Youtube, Auditor 24 monitors activity across Google emails, documents, and web chat. If the monitoring team finds anything that is cause for concern, parents and counselors will be alerted in real-time based on the judgment and analysis from trained staff members.

    The “24” service for Filter and Auditor are Securly’s newest paid products in addition to the company’s award-winning CIPA compliance solution and patented free parental controls for school-issued devices. Taken together, they represent an expanding portfolio of products that position Securly as the student safety company.

    A recent article identifying the “Top 5 Sustainable Hotels Around The World,” featuring The Lodge at Chaa Creek’s blend of luxury with environmental sustainability and support for local communities, highlights a global trend towards responsible travel, the popular Belizean jungle lodge’s GM says.

    San Ignacio, Belize (PRWEB) September 26, 2017

    The Lodge at Chaa Creek has once again been recognised as one of the world’s top sustainable resorts, further cementing the popular Belizean eco-resort’s reputation as a pioneering leader in sustainable travel, according to general manager Bryony Fleming Bradley.

    A September 14 article, “ Top 5 Sustainable Hotels Around The World,” in Luxury Travel Blog, identified five hotels in Australia, Cambodia, Iceland, the USA and Belize’s The Lodge at Chaa Creek, which travel writer Tom Marchant describes as;

    “In the lush Belizean jungle, this luxury hotel has led the way for sustainable tourism in the region. Sustainable construction, sustainable operations and initiatives allow nature to flourish and welcome the local wildlife. With a range of accommodation available – from sleek villas boasting outdoor hot tubs, plunge pools and private butlers, to budget friendly camping – Chaa Creek is triumphantly blurring the lines between the worlds of high end and budget eco-tourism”

    Mr Marchant is co founder of Black Tomato, an international luxury travel agency that has previously described Chaa Creek as a “must” for those travellers with

    “... a sense of adventure but a discerning taste for the better things in life. Offering an authentic jungle experience in the beating heart of Belize’s rainforest, Chaa Creek is a stunning lodge devoted to sustainability and green tourism, but doesn’t scrimp on luxury as a result."

    Ms Bradley said such comments reflect well not only on Chaa Creek, but the state of global tourism in general.

    “My parents, Mick and Lucy Fleming, started Chaa Creek with a few small cottages on our family farm on the Macal River back in 1981, the same month Belize achieved independence from Great Britain. Belize was still relatively unknown, and the Cayo District even more so, so most of our early guests were researchers exploring the local ancient Maya temples and archaeological sites, professional birders, people studying Belize’s flora and fauna, local culture and so on.

    “And since they were both keen environmentalists, they attracted likeminded people and developed Chaa Creek very consciously, working with the natural contours of the land, building around big trees rather than cutting them down, and building in a sustainable manner.

    “As my father says, Chaa Creek was an eco-resort before we even heard the term, and we’ve been happy to keep it that way, and proving that you can combine luxury, great food and service and exciting activities in ways that actually benefit the environment and local communities.

    “And over the years we’ve been fortunate that more and more travellers feel that same sense of responsibility to the land and people they visit, and that sustainable tourism has become so popular. It’s a very good sign," Ms Bradley said.

    It would appear that global travel trends have caught up with the Fleming’s green ethos. In a recent Condé Nast Traveller survey, 93% of respondents stated that travel companies should be responsible for protecting the environment, and 58% said they based their choice of a hotel on the support it gives to local communities, while Forbes quotes a survey that shows nearly two-thirds of US travellers “often or always” consider the environment when choosing accommodation.

    And in a 2012 Trip Advisor survey, 71% of respondents said they planned on making more-eco-friendly choices during the next year, and that 65% actually did so in the last twelve months.

    In this global travel climate, Chaa Creek continues to attract attention and recognition such as first place honours in their category at the 2017 National Geographic World Legacy Awards presented at the world’s largest travel trade fair held in Berlin last February.

    The Belizean eco-resort also has been recognised by Green Globe with that organisation’s highest certification, was among the Travel Chanel’s top “Eco-Friendly Luxury Resorts”, Green Hotelier’s “Eco-Hotels of the World”, and has been recognised by TripAdvisor, Green Travel Index, Trip Savvy, L’EcoResorts, and other travel authorities for their commitment to sustainable travel and responsible tourism.

    Situated with a 400-acre private nature reserve with a wide range of accommodations spanning the rustic to the luxurious, and featuring farm-to-table dining at the onsite Mariposa restaurant, Chaa Creek also features an internationally recognised Hilltop Spa, eco-infinity pool, a Belize Natural History Museum, butterfly breeding farm, traditional Maya organic farm and rainforest medicinal plant trail and other amenities.

    Onsite activities include river canoeing and tubing, horseback riding and nature hikes along miles of trails crisscrossing the nature reserve, jungle and river safaris, morning bird identification, nocturnal wildlife adventures and more, giving Chaa Creek the reputation as Belize’s “Destination within a Destination” among travel industry professionals, Ms Bradley explained.

    “Chaa Creek’s growth in many ways parallels that of Belize’s. We grew very quickly, but more importantly we did so with scrupulous attention to how development would affect the environment and our local communities. Fortunately, we tapped into a more responsible attitude towards tourism on the part of many of today’s travellers, and that’s been really beneficial for everyone concerned, I think.

    “It’s the very definition of a win-win situation,” Ms Bradley said.

    The Lodge at Chaa Creek is a multi-award winning eco resort set within a 400-acre private nature reserve along the banks of the Macal River in Belize. It was recognised by National Geographic with first place honours at the 2017 World Legacy Awards held in Berlin.

    Over the past 18-years through Habitat for Humanity, $340,000 has been raised along with the help of hundreds of students from 40-organizations erecting shacks each year in the Brickyard on the NC State campus.

    Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) September 27, 2017

    Started in 1998, the NC State Caldwell Fellows Student Shack-A-Thon fund raiser primary goal was to help bring awareness to the issue of affordable housing for people in Wake County, NC. Over the past 18-years through Habitat for Humanity, $340,000 has been raised along with the help of hundreds of students from 40-organizations erecting shacks each year in the Brickyard on the NC State campus. The goal this year is to raise $65,000 for the construction of an entire Habitat Wake County home. To date the NC State Habitat for Humanity chapter has helped sponsor and build 23-homes since 1991.

    “We had a very ambitious goal this year for Shack-A-Thon and thanks to Koolbridge Solar’s large donation, I believe we will meet that goal and even surpass it. We have never been sponsored by a company and I think few shacks are so generously supported as ours was this year. This kind of partnership bolsters everyone involved and has inspired each member of our shack group to push even further in raising money and awareness for such an important cause. We could not be more grateful towards Koolbridge Solar for sponsoring the Caldwell Fellows and cannot describe the excitement we have each experienced upon hearing about their generous sponsorship. I truly believe we will raise more money this year than we ever have before,” said Craig Prince, NCSU College of Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Caldwell Fellows Class of 2019.

    “Koolbridge Solar was very fortunate to be able to have several students from the NCSU Engineering Department as summer interns, and offered full-time employment to a 2017 undergraduate. Our goal as the Company grows is to continue to bring in top students from universities such as NCSU to help build our product development team so that we provide the best products on the market. Contributing to the NC State Caldwell Fellows Student Shack-A-Thon charity is just one way that Koolbridge Solar is able to be an integral part of the RTP community, and show our appreciation for the high level of talent that comes from NCSU,” said Chris Tridico, Chief Technology Officer of Koolbridge Solar. Mr. Tridico received his Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in Japanese Language and Cultural Studies from North Carolina State University in 1992. He is a John T. Caldwell Fellow and received a full academic scholarship.

    Aislelabs has announced the release of their new WiFi marketing for shopping malls white-paper explaining how malls can reinvent themselves digitally.

    Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 27, 2017

    Aislelabs has just released a brand new white-paper entitled “Why Wi-Fi Matters for the Shopping Centres of Tomorrow.” The new document was prepared for shopping centre groups and owners detailing how WiFi marketing for shopping malls can help today's shopping centres thrive in the retail market of tomorrow. It is available right now at

    Shopping centres have undergone a tectonic shift in the last few years due to the rise of e-commerce. Once a dedicated and centralized place for retail, they have since broadened beyond that narrow definition. No longer do they focus on retail shopping alone and are expanding into restaurants, fitness centres, medical clinics, office spaces, as well as other recreational, business, and institutional uses. The white-paper details how to prosper in this new paradigm.

    One of the biggest challenges facing mall owners/operators is the lack of direct relationships with shoppers which is necessary for creating personalized and experience based environments. Guest WiFi has become a ubiquitous service in shopping malls and can be utilized to achieve more than just basic connectivity. It can be harnessed as an indispensable tool for gaining valuable behavioural and demographic customer insights, along with collecting contact information, to build sophisticated CRM lists.

    In this document, shopping centre owners and groups will learn why WiFi matters for their malls, which trends are driving this change, and why malls need to reinvent themselves in order to keep pace with a changing market. The white-paper also details how the industry has changed in the modern era and explores the tools required for a digital transformation. Here is an overview of what is covered in this free document:

    • Why WiFi Matters for the Shopping Centres of Tomorrow

    • Let’s Talk Malls
    • The Trends Shaping Up this Change Include
    • Malls Need to Reinvent Themselves
    • What Can WiFi Do for Malls
    • Aislelabs WiFi Solutions

    Gary Pudles, CEO and President of SA Hosted and Managed Solutions, has been invited to present at this year’s AstriCon.

    Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 27, 2017

    Gary Pudles, CEO and President of SA Hosted and Managed Solutions, has been invited to present at this year’s AstriCon. AstriCon is a three-day conference with a purpose to expand awareness and knowledge of the open-sourced communications software. Pudles, who recently launched SA Virtual Contact Center (VCC) using Asterisk, will be speaking on the ability to create cloud-based call center technology built on that platform.

    In recent years, cloud-based platforms have become much of the norm for contact centers. However, not all systems provide omni-channel communications and little have room for integrations with other software products. In 2015, Gary Pudles introduced a cost-effective contact center platform (VCC) by stacking technology such as Asterisk and other open-source applications.

    “The key is to provide a seamless and personalized experience for each caller,” said Pudles. “A call center agent can have a real-time text communication with a client's customer and then dispatch that entire conversation to the client's on call person using voice, email, SMS, fax, etc. If your platform doesn’t support multiple communication paths, and doesn’t easily integrate with client programs, then your system lacks that customer-centric focus.”

    Pudles session at AstriCon will include tips on:

    -Technology Sourcing: Understanding how to scope your technology needs as a business owner.

    -Input on Open Source Tools: Finding the right ones for your contact center.

    -The Many Faces of Asterisk: Learning the system inside and out and teaching it how to work with you.

    Held at the Omni Orlando, Pudles will lead his session on October 4, 2017 at 3:45 PM EST. For more information about Gary Pudles and SA Hosted and Managed Solutions, please visit For more information about AstriCon 2017, please visit

    Virtual Speech Center Inc., a leading software development company for therapists, today announced the release of TheraPlatform, a web-based, secure, and HIPAA-compliant telepractice platform.

    Burbank,CA (PRWEB) September 27, 2017

    TheraPlatform is a teletherapy platform that allows therapists to connect with their clients online. It provides therapists with not only a virtual room but also built-in tools and therapeutic materials, such as interactive apps, making online therapy engaging and enjoyable.

    “There are many general videoconferencing tools on the market allowing therapists to meet their clients virtually, but they were not built with therapists in mind, and they lack therapeutic materials,” said Beata Klarowska, co-founder of TheraPlatform. “We had the pleasure of meeting many therapists in person, when attending professional conferences, and they all reported to us that preparing for online session is very time-consuming, as therapists themselves need to organize and create their own materials to share with their clients,” added Beata.

    TheraPlatform provides individual therapists and organizations with turnkey teletherapy software that helps therapists to focus on their clients and saves planning time. Therapists can take advantage of interactive tools available in TheraPlatform, such as a whiteboard, apps, document sharing, and screen sharing. TheraPlatform can be used by speech and language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, and mental health providers, making it an ideal platform for practices, clinics, or organizations that provide multidisciplinary services.

    About TheraPlatform

    TheraPlatform was developed by Virtual Speech Center Inc., a software development company founded in 2011. Virtual Speech Center Inc. has developed over 40 apps for therapists to date, helping them to treat cognitive and communicative disorders.

    Two separate counties buy one system to reduce costs while remaining independent.

    Mountain Home and Yellville, Arkansas (PRWEB) September 27, 2017

    In a creative decision that will improve the way 9-1-1 service providers deliver public safety services in Arkansas, two counties have jointly purchased a new 9-1-1 system from Solacom. By sharing one system, Marion and Baxter counties will not only save costs and resources, but will also have the ability to host counties with smaller populations on their network.

    “I am extremely excited about working with Solacom to band together with Baxter County and bringing a new concept to Arkansas,” says Jennifer Hunt, Marion County 9-1-1 Coordinator. “Solacom helped our two counties work together to do a cost share for 9-1-1 equipment, which reduces the financial burden and allows us to focus on what we do as call takers — help citizens on their worst day.”

    Both entities wanted an interoperable, state-of-the-art system, and chose Solacom’s .

    Guardian 9-1-1 Solution, with two positions in Marion County and four in Baxter County. Each county remains fully independent, serving its own population base. Leadership in both counties, including Judge Mickey Pendergrass and Judge Terry Ott demonstrated vision by creating solutions that are outside-the-box for their respective counties and can be duplicated throughout Arkansas.

    “First responders depend on reliable and secure systems to carry out their jobs in the safest and most efficient manner possible,” says Shannon Guynn, Baxter County 9-1-1 coordinator. “The Solacom solution is a game changer for every agency that has ever dealt with system crashes and downtime.”

    With Solacom’s Guardian 9-1-1 Solution, both counties now have the most flexible, user-centric emergency call management solution for Public Service Answering Points (PSAPs). The IP-based, fully integrated NG9-1-1 solution is designed to support all current and emerging standards and enables future enhancements without replacing the underlying infrastructure.

    At the desktop, call takers in both counties work with the customizable Guardian 9-1-1 Call Handling solution, which enables quick and efficient response to every call. In addition, Marion and Baxter counties are now text-to-911 ready with Guardian Text, which is seamlessly integrated in the solution.

    Call takers are also equipped with Guardian Map, which displays complete call location information and enables them to answer and manage calls directly with the interface.

    The complete solution for both counties includes Solacom’s Guardian Management Information System (MIS), a call logging, tracking, and reporting application, which allows the PSAPs to collect ongoing, real-time critical data and access all data at any time for a variety of administrative reports.

    Marion and Baxter Counties have the added reassurance that they can back each other up. If for any reason call takers in either location need to evacuate their building, the system is designed to allow call takers to relocate to the other PSAP, sign in, and take calls just as if they were still in their own county.

    The complete Guardian solution includes Solacom’s Guardian Managed Services, which ensure compliance with the latest standards and technology, provide ongoing upgrades, and make sure the installed solution is operating at peak performance. All alerts are investigated by certified Solacom technicians, who identify and address any issues before they escalate into more serious problems, reducing potential downtime.

    “For many PSAPs these days, budgets are very tight and some may not have the same purchasing power as other counties,” says Tony Parrott, Solacom vice president of sales. “The Solacom solution has allowed Marion and Baxter Counties to optimize their budget and save money. With this solution, Marion and Baxter Counties can also allow smaller counties to use the core equipment by hosting them on their network. We are very excited to see what opportunities this provides for PSAPs in Arkansas.”

    About Solacom

    Solacom 9-1-1 call handling and management solutions are built on more than 30 years of research and innovation in the application of advanced hardware and software technologies for public safety. Today, Solacom Guardian 9-1-1 solutions support thousands of agencies affecting millions of lives annually.
