Caption: Barbara Bickham, founder and CEO of TechGenii, IncEntrepreneur Magazine picks the nation's top 25 influencers - individuals, groups or trends - that they believe will have substantial impact on business owners in the coming year.

In a special section of Entrepreneur Magazine, "The Influencers," Bickham was asked, along with 25 other influencers, about what forces they predict will affect their business in the coming year. Bickham was asked to specifically comment on a recent landmark event where the FCC auctioned television air waves.

According to Bickham, "The next innovation leap in mobile media could occur from this sale, because whoever controls the airwaves will be able to deliver content, products and services into and out of the home rather easily and quickly."

The fact that these Superman-like frequencies can cross long distances, penetrate walls and carry loads of information in a single bound is predicted to impact everything from enhanced search on television and mobile phones to the possibility of new forms of communication altogether.

"I was honored to be included in Entrepreneur Magazine as an 'influencer,'" Bickham said. "Digital media is not just a trend, it's a force that will continue to evolve and affect the way we do business on a daily basis."

Founded in 2002, TechGenii, Inc. has spent the past four years in interactive, mobile and digital media strategy, project management, and implementation.

Relios Jewelry receives Two Awards from City of Albuquerque for Pollution Prevention

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - Jan. 9 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Relios Jewelry, a company nationally recognized for its customer focus, merchandising teamwork, innovation, and operational excellence, now has more accolades to boast - this time in the arena of "Good Environmental Practices." The Albuquerque Bernalillo County Water Utility Department's Pollution Prevention Staff has awarded America's largest manufacturer of authentic American-made jewelry with not one but two prestigious honors: 1) Pollution Prevention (p2) Award, and 2) 5 PPM Silver Award.

Caption: Colors of the Canyon Multi-Gemstone Leaves Pendant by Relios The Pollution Prevention (p2) Award recognizes the company's efforts to reduce waste, dedication to pollution prevention practices, and education. A letter from City Pollution Prevention staff outlines a number of specific "Best Management Practices" used by Relios ranging from practicing good housekeeping to proper management of waste.

The 5 PPM Silver Award distinguishes Relios for its efforts in reducing silver bearing waste(s) - acknowledging that the company has been a vital partner in helping to reduce silver discharges to the sanitary sewer system.

"Relios is very proud to be recognized for being a good environmental partner," says company President Bill Pollack. "These honors speak to the level of dedication and care that our employees exercise at work every single day. Whether it's in the creation of our jewelry or the attention to pollution prevention, our staff really goes the extra mile, and it shows."

Relios, which has been designing and manufacturing contemporary sterling silver and genuine gemstone jewelry since the 1970's, will go through seven tons of silver this year, and ship more than 700,000 finished pieces of jewelry throughout the world.

Corporately responsible and "green-friendly," Relios maintains a strong commitment to quality control and trust. Every single piece of Relios jewelry is manufactured in the U.S. and is lead-free and nickel-free. Additionally, Relios uses only recycled precious metals in its manufacturing processes.

Cambridge firm receives Gold Award for Residential Interiors

BOSTON, Mass. - Nov. 13 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Charlie Allen Restorations has been recognized with the Contractor of the Year (CotY) Gold Award for Residential Interiors for its meticulous renovation of an 1853 Greek Revival home in Cambridge, MA. The Eastern Massachusetts chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (EM-NARI) presented the award on Wednesday, November 7.

"Receiving this recognition from our peers in the industry is a significant honor," says Charlie Allen, founder of the Cambridge-based firm. "It's also a great testament to the craftsmanship and hard work regularly demonstrated by the entire Charlie Allen team, as well as our talented partners on this project."

The award-winning renovation transforms a row house that had suffered numerous additions and alterations over the years, resulting in an unwieldy floor plan that placed both the homeowner's master bedroom and a separate apartment, used as a rental unit, on the second floor of the three-story house. The owners, a young, growing family, tasked Charlie Allen Restorations with turning the dwelling back into a one-family, kid-friendly space, while restoring its 19th-century charm.

Working with architect Tom Downer, the team eliminated the rental space and crafted a master bathroom, dressing area, and child's bedroom and bathroom in its place. Large closets and wall cubbies were introduced to improve storage for the family, and custom-designed, furniture-quality armoires were placed in the dressing area. Period-appropriate hardware, doors, base molding, and wide planked, white oak flooring were introduced to the home's bedrooms. The new master bath became the protagonist of the floor plan, combining both period detailing and modern amenities like a large, glassed-in shower that doubles as a steam room, radiant floor heating, and an electric towel warmer. Clerestory windows and frosted glass doors flood the bathroom with abundant natural lighting from floor-to-ceiling windows in the adjacent hallway.

In addition to Downer, other partners on the project include the demolition and disposal firm Mark One, Inc., HVAC specialists Keyes North Atlantic, Puccio Electric, and the cleaning firm Surfaceworks.

The 2007 Gold CotY Award marks Charlie Allen Restorations' fourth such award in the last three years.

The Eastern Massachusetts chapter of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry is a not-for-profit trade association committed exclusively to enhancing the professionalism of the remodeling industry and providing ethical and quality service to the region's remodeling homeowners. Representing full-service remodeling contractors, design-build firms, architects, designers, subcontractors, product manufacturers, distributors, wholesalers, and those who provide services and products to the remodeling field, NARI stands as the spokesgroup of the industry and an ally to the nation's homeowners.

Charlie Allen Restorations is an award-winning firm specializing in the seamless integration of modern amenities into period homes while retaining original period details. Charlie Allen Restorations combines expert tradespeople and established project management techniques to deliver exceptional customer satisfaction.
