Marijuana is Central to the Future Economy and New Companies are Growing like Weeds

DENVER, Colo. -- Marijuana Central has seen incredible growth in the past six months and now receives over 300,000 unique visitors per month. Company founder Korban Stone says, "We have not done any marketing yet, but we continue to see the number of visitors rise." He plans to begin advertising and marketing the site and last month the website began to monetize by accepting listings from marijuana related companies. "We'll be investing our revenues into driving more traffic to the site. I don't see this growth trend ending any time soon as this is just the beginning of this industry and we're positioned to grow with it."

Stone believes that Jack Herer, father of the marijuana movement, would be somewhat pleased with the industry's progress since his passing. Cannabis businesses are taking off as he and fellow activist "Captain" Ed Adair envisioned when they set out to Help End Marijuana Prohibition (H.E.M.P.). These two activists realized before the Internet era that information was the key to legalization because of the many benefits of the plant.

Korban Stone created his site - MarijuanaCentral.com - because of his love of freedom and absolute disgust of what he saw as a violation of people's Fourth Amendment. As a computer expert he created technology that he later patented to help people pass drug tests. He called the product, The Drug Test Calculator, and it has helped countless people.

Wanting to get more insight into this emerging market, Stone created polls on his website to learn from the people who visited. Stone got thousands of his visitors to participate and was shocked by some of the results. He found that more marijuana users claimed to use cannabis for spiritual purposes more than medical. "Those results made me rethink the whole website in relation to the industry." The site is now more of a marijuana-lifestyle community, boasting several mobile applications for iOS and Android.

It has to be acknowledged that one of the fastest growing industries in the U.S. is the cannabis business. Famous celebrities no longer find it controversial to admit to having smoked marijuana. For example, Jimmy Kimmel, Bill Maher and Brad Pitt have all admitted to having tried marijuana if not outright advocating for it like Woody Harrelson. Even Presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama have admitted to smoking marijuana. In the 1980s a highly qualified Supreme Court nominee lost that job opportunity because he admitted to trying pot in college.

Times are changing and marijuana for medical, industrial and recreational purposes are expanding. One state after another is legalizing marijuana in some form. This is taking place internationally as well as on Indian Reservations in the U.S. where each sovereign nation can now choose their own stance on cannabis use. Like the Gold Rush of the 1800s, individuals and businesses are migrating to take part in this "Green Rush." People are moving in vast numbers to legal states to be involved in the rapidly growing marijuana business.

Marijuana lifestyle companies seem to be the vogue. MarijuanaCentral.com has set itself apart by driving so much organic traffic to their site by offering free technology to the visitors of their site. The company is using the agile method of development and for that reason the layout of the site has seen rapid development over the past year as they are constantly trying to improve the UX/UI, user experience/user interface.

Company executives are finding that marijuana dispensaries listing with Marijuana Central, whether for medical or recreational purposes, are getting 20 new clients per month from the site and they expect that number to grow because of the site's recent exponential growth. Marketing Manager Daniel Diaz says, "We are not as big as some companies out there, but we are reasonably priced and our clients like the customer service we provide." He continued, "Where we beat the competition is on price per new client."

The early HEMP activists were covered in tie-dye when they met at their hemp rallies and now there are marijuana conventions filled with guys in suits who fly thousands of miles and pay high prices to attend these conferences to meet fellow entrepreneurs. As Jack Herer wrote in his heroic manuscript, "The Emperor Wears No Clothes" - the marijuana conspiracy and how hemp became prohibited, this plant can save the planet. His theory was that marijuana made just about everything that fossil fuels made and it was prohibited to help the petro-chemical industry. Not only did he say that cannabis was medicine, be he also popularized the idea of bringing back hemp for fuel, fiber and food. Now 30 years later all of these hemp industries that he and Captain Ed envisioned exist and are creating jobs.

The Blue Danes Release Sensational Debut Album ‘Invisible and Untouchable’ on Chicago Label, Loki Valhalla

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Midwest-based alt-rock band, The Blue Danes have released their debut album "Invisible and Untouchable" on Chicago label Loki Valhalla Productions. This haunting lyrical masterpiece includes the highly anticipated release of the popular single "Beautiful and Sad," which has earned over 26,000 YouTube views.

Formed after the breakup of the local alt-rock band Toast, ex-bassist Shaun Courbat and ex-guitarist Frank Hansen partnered with veteran drummer Skip Lowe (Billy Lee Janey Band) to form The Blue Danes.

Their name stems from an ironic blend of lead singer/songwriter Frank Hansen's melancholy melodies with his red and blue-blooded Danish upbringing.

Produced by GRAMMY(R) nominated producer Tom Tatman (Stone Sour), "Invisible and Untouchable" is a lyrical and composition masterpiece that will give you goose bumps.

"One of the main draws of the band is the performance from lead singer and songwriter Frank Hansen. His hauntingly lyrical displays and melancholic melodies really come to the forefront, especially in tracks 'Fade,' 'Hurricane' and the lead single 'Beautiful and Sad.' In the latter you can really get a taste of Hansen's quirky performance quality in the music video whist he parades before the camera menacingly sounding like the great John Grant," explains Samuel Mensah, Daily News Service.

"Invisible and Untouchable" can be downloaded on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.

Oak Hills Local Schools Green Team lays the groundwork for zero-waste cafeterias

TIPP CITY, Ohio -- Oak Hills Local Schools will start off the 2016-2017 school year with zero-waste tables in all of its cafeterias, thanks in part to the groundwork laid by the district's Green Team, a student-led conservation and sustainability group sponsored by Energy Optimizers, USA.

The zero-waste tables will help each building minimize how much trash goes to the landfill by enabling students and staff to separate their waste into compost, recyclables and trash. The idea originated with Oak Hills teachers Debbie Stallo and Michele Taylor, who also help guide the district's Green Team.

"Throughout the year, our Green Team has really helped our district focus its efforts related to energy conservation and sustainability practices into educational opportunities for the entire student body," said Todd Yohey. "The students on our Green Team have not only learned volumes about energy conservation and sustainability principles, they have shared their knowledge with others while developing resume-building leadership skills."

The Green Team is a component of the district's $4 million energy enhancement project with Energy Optimizers, USA. The project will improve the comfort, control and reliability of the district's HVAC and lighting systems while significantly reducing operational costs. As part of the project, Energy Optimizers, USA, sponsored the development of the Green Team to engage students, staff and the community in developing, promoting and implementing numerous energy savings and sustainability programs throughout the district.

The addition of the zero-waste tables capped off an active year for the Green Team.

Last June, Taylor accompanied four middle school girls to Columbus to participate in the AEGIS Energy Bike program, during which the girls built and learned how to use an energy demonstration bike. Also in June, Stallo participated in the three-day Ohio Energy Project Energy Sources Tour, where she toured AEP corporate offices, a school with solar panels, a wind turbine, a coal-fired power plant and the Ohio State energy-related research facilities.

In October, a group of Green Team students participated in the Ohio Energy Project Leadership Summit. The leadership summit is designed to teach energy-related activities to students so they can return to their home districts and share those activities with classes and groups.

And in May, the Green Team placed 10th overall out of 100 competitors at the Caring for Our Watershed competition at the Cincinnati Zoo.

"We are proud of our students and thankful for the opportunities made available to us through the creation of our Green Team," said Todd Yohey.

About Energy Optimizers, USA:

Energy Optimizers, USA works with educational, governmental, commercial and industrial customers to implement energy savings opportunities to reduce operational costs, including lighting retrofits, renewable energy projects (wind and solar), HVAC retrofit projects, building automation retrofits and energy education programs.

New Book, ‘Tales of a Silver-Haired Volunteer’ Educates and Entertains

WARWICK, N.Y. -- Leaving her comfort zone, having adventurous fun, and being useful are at the heart of Carole Howard's new travel memoir, "Tales of a Silver-Haired Volunteer: Going Far and Giving Back" (ISBN: 978-1619844568). The book documents the author's and her husband's late-in-life volunteer travels to Africa and Asia. Some are funny. Some are serious. Many are both.

It all started over a meal of spaghetti with sloppy red sauce, wine, and discussions of mortality. Howard and her husband, Geoffrey, had always thought about joining the Peace Corps together some day since he'd been a volunteer many years ago. They just hadn't realized "some day" had arrived. What now? They'd need to retire from their consulting business. Could they do it? They did.

"It made sense to travel after retirement. We'd done a lot of it and were good at it," Howard says. "But most of our trips had been the regular 10-day to two-week kind - hiking, biking and touring different cities and countries. This would be different."

They found that American Jewish World Service (AJWS) sought mid- and post-career professionals for volunteer assignments ranging from one month to one year. This was perfect. They applied and were accepted. What began as "let's give it a shot," turned into a series of life-changing adventures.

Published by Gatekeeper Press, each section of "Tales of a Silver-Haired Volunteer" consists of "verbal snapshots" of five very different assignments in five countries in the developing world: irrigated agriculture in Senegal, mountain gorilla health in Uganda, orphan care in Namibia, sex education in Thailand and AIDS prevention among sex workers in Ghana.

Howard's unique perspective, combined with her sense of humor, provides insights into people and their cultures. It also provides insight into Howard's self and subsequent evolution.

"Carole and Geoffrey accepted assignments, settled into whatever accommodations were available, and took on the challenges and satisfactions of living in a different culture, developing relationships with different people and bonding with them over the work to be done," Ruth Messinger, the president of American Jewish World Service, says in the book's foreword. "Wherever they went, they discovered that most important piece of learning - the extent to which people everywhere share values and personal stories that can bring us together instead of setting us apart."

Howard says that she wrote this book not only to tell tales of the good, the hard, and the laughable, but also in hopes that it might inspire readers to think that they can do something similar.

"Whether it be for a week, a month, a year or in recurring increments over the years, these experiences will change the way readers see the world and themselves," she adds.

A portion of book sales will be donated to AJWS.

About the Author:

Carole Howard lives with her husband in New York's mid-Hudson Valley. A world traveler, she has been to more than 50 countries. She is the co-author of "The Great PARIS WalkPack," a collection of self-guided walking tours of Paris, and the author of two novels, "About Face" and "Deadly Adagio."

About American Jewish World Service:

American Jewish World Service is the first and only Jewish organization dedicated solely to ending poverty and promoting human rights in the developing world. Through philanthropy and advocacy, they have addressed some of the gravest global problems of our time - genocide, AIDS, violence against women and girls, hatred of LGBT people and the horrific consequences of natural and human-made disasters.

Professional Auditing Services of America Announces Its New 2016 Contingency Based Digital Accounts Payable Recovery Dashboard

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. -- Professional Auditing Services of America (PAS) announced today that it will make its newly engineered and proprietary Accounts Payable Digital Recovery Dashboard (Progress Report) available to all new clients free of charge. The Dashboard is an easy to read, single page, real-time user interface, showing a graphical presentation of the current status (snapshot) of PAS' contingency based recovery review progress and supplier trends.

The PAS Dashboard will also depict the client's Procurement/Disbursement process, as it relates to various types of overpayment recoveries and key performance indicators that ultimately enable instantaneous and informed improvement decisions to be made at a glance.

Specifically, the Recovery Dashboard is displayed via a secure portal located on PAS' web page that is linked to a secure database which allows the report to be constantly updated in real-time. The PAS Dashboard would allow authorized users to see the high-level recovery process and then drill down into low level data and documentation. This level of detail is often buried deep within the organization and otherwise unavailable to senior executives.

The benefits of using PAS' Dashboard include: visual presentation of performance measures, ability to identify and correct negative trends, measure efficiencies/inefficiencies, ability to generate detailed reports, on demand, showing new trends, ability to make more informed decisions based on collected business intelligence, align strategies and organizational goals, saves time compared to analyzing multiple reports, provides total visibility of all contingency based recoveries instantly, and provides quick identification of recovery claim outliers and correlations at a glance.

"Times are hard for businesses. Every dollar counts," said company CEO, Roy D. Jackson., CPA. "PAS performs a variety of cost reduction/profit recovery services on a 100 percent contingency fee basis. No 'front-end or back-end' costs/fees. Which means more money goes back to the company's bottom line."

Many organizations don't have the resources or the time to undertake a project such as a Recovery Engagement. PAS has identified recoveries for a number of clients that total over $1 million per/engagement. PAS identifies recoveries, and shares with its clients how to avoid making such overpayments in the future.

The PAS Team Facilitators review 100 percent of the accounts payable invoice records going as far back as 3 years to look for exceptions that were never correctly refunded: overcharges, incorrect invoice pricing, duplicate payments, missed cash discounts, excess freight charges, sales/ other accrued regulatory taxes paid in error, credits for returned goods never received, telecommunication & utility overcharges and vendor database maintenance.

All organizations are encouraged to check out PAS's website and see if this 100 percent contingency fee based cost recovery review is right for them, but do it soon, otherwise these overpayments maybe lost forever.

More information: https://www.pas-cash.com/.

About Professional Auditing Services of America:

Based in Southfield, Michigan, Professional Auditing Services has been recovering tens of millions of dollars with their unique and specialized auditing techniques for large organizations for over 22 years. Professional Auditing Services is a nationally acclaimed Accounts Payable Recovery Firm serving a large client base applicable to all large organizations. The company is comprised of a team of independent, fully bonded, accountants. We are constantly developing more effective strategic approaches, "drilling down" and recovering over 75 different varieties of duplicate & over payments. This includes: using duplicate payment detection algorithms to identify fuzzy matching; vendor database maintenance; regulatory tax recoveries; telecommunication; and systems and process reviews.
