Waguespack Donates "Landscape" and "Winter"

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - Oct. 12 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- John Waguespack, a unique San Francisco Surreal Artist, donates a portion of the proceeds for two original paintings in honor of Larkin Street Youth Services. A private reception and art sale is being held at The Four Galleries in San Francisco today, Thursday October 12th, and Friday October 13th. Waguespack's "Landscape" was painted in 2005 and "Winter" was added to the portfolio in January 2006.

Copr. (c) John WaguespackWaguespack's art emerged onto the San Francisco art scene with great fanfare in 2005. Waguespack works in several mediums including oil, acrylic, ink, multimedia and industrial design. This will be the second year of Waguespack's participation in The Four Galleries Larkin Street event.

"I am happy to be included in this event with such exceptional Bay Area artists, all supporting such a great youth organization that's helping to get kids off the street," said John Waguespack.

Waguespack will be featured in upcoming events, shows and exhibitions in San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York throughout 2006 and 2007.

About John Waguespack

Born and raised in Atlanta, John Waguespack has been painting and drawing since the age of 3. After attending Boston College as a finance major, he spent several years working for Wall Street. In an attempt to recapture his sanity, he attended the Portfolio Center in Atlanta and studied art direction and design. John moved to San Francisco in 1998 where he was an art director for several bay area ad agencies. In 2005 he quit the 9 to 5 to focus completely on painting.

"My work, like my mind, floats heavily between the abstract and the surreal," adds Waguespack. "The struggle is often to make sense of the initial chaos created by abstraction and push elements into the surreal. The paintings essentially design themselves, shapes form, light plays and eventually a story begins to unfold. The subconscious often interjects historical and current events, religion, sarcasm and elements of popular culture."

"The economic and societal impact of these technologies will change our lives for the good. We are very excited about acquiring GeckoSystems, Inc. and being involved in helping to create a better twenty-first century tomorrow.

GeckoSystems has a plethora of breakthrough technology announcements to unveil. It will enable us to distribute our suite of robotic technologies to a much broader market which is conservatively estimated to be in the billions of dollars. In conclusion, this acquisition increases the potential and rewards to investors of both companies," stated George MacLeod, Sr. Vice President of Business Development for GeckoSystems, Inc.

State Approves The Learning Adventure for Supplemental Literacy Education

Author: The Learning Adventure
Dateline: Wed, 11 Oct 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “MONROVIA, Calif. - Oct. 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The California State Department of Education recently approved The Learning Adventure to provide Supplemental Education Services to students who fall under the protection of the recent Title I and No Child Left Behind legislation. This means that students struggling in California schools are able to access the quality literacy program offered by The Learning Adventure at no cost to parents.”

MONROVIA, Calif. - Oct. 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- The California State Department of Education recently approved The Learning Adventure to provide Supplemental Education Services to students who fall under the protection of the recent Title I and No Child Left Behind legislation. This means that students struggling in California schools are able to access the quality literacy program offered by The Learning Adventure at no cost to parents.

The Learning AdventureThe Learning Adventure program is a comprehensive, breakthrough approach to literacy (reading, writing, speaking, critical/creative thinking). Founded by retired CSULA Professor John Morrison in 1998, The Learning Adventure has an excellent track record of successfully moving students to the "next level" of literacy fluency.

According to Director of Education, Kincaid Smith, "On average, students who attend our program read faster, understand more of what they read by a factor of 50%, and are able to introduce expression and creativity into their reading. The average increase in writing fluency (speed and accuracy) is 35%." Mr. Smith explained that The Learning Adventure programs may reach children better than typical classroom lessons because "they teach children in a way that is aligned with how they learn." The program employs dynamic teachers who engage the classroom with theater, kinesthetics, games and encouragement of self-expression.

Vincent, a Level 5 student, had this to say about the program, "At first I didn't know how to write an essay but now I think I am the best writer in the world. I didn't like reading, but now I read 20-60 pages in a day! It was great. I always looked forward to this class. I hope my parents will let me join this class again. My teacher makes work into games and boring into fun. It's like magic!"

The Learning Adventure has been providing classes, study groups and private tutoring (Kindergarten through High School) throughout Los Angeles and Orange County since 1999. "In addition to our scholarship program," stressed Mr. Smith, "...our new status as a Supplemental Education Service provider allows us to reach a greater number of the kids who need us. This is very good news since studies show that any student who receives some sort of supplemental education will be more competitive academically, and that translates to being more competitive in the workforce."

Parents can contact their school to determine if their student qualifies for Supplemental Education Services. Parents interested in The Learning Adventure's scholarship programs or information on upcoming classes, study groups and tutoring may contact The Learning Adventure directly at 626-359-1781. The Fall Term begins the weekend of October 15th or October 21st depending on location. For more information, parents and students may also visit www.thelearningadventure.com.

Cynthia, a parent from Orange County, placed her eight-year-old son in The Learning Adventure Level Four program over the summer and had this to say: "My son enjoyed the classes greatly. His ability to read increased immensely and his writing ability really improved. I feel that this program did more over one short term for his literacy fluency than the entire school year. Parents need to do whatever they can to get their students into this program, because it works."

DonateIT, a Dallas Based Start-up, to Raise Money for Non-profits, Churches and Schools

Author: DonateIT LLC
Dateline: Wed, 11 Oct 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “GRAPEVINE, Tex. - Oct. 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- DonateIT LLC (Donate Information Technology) is a start-up with a special mission. The company turns used technology donations - computers, servers, printers, ink jet cartridges, media players and cell phones - into cash for non-profits, churches and schools.”



A R T I C L E:

GRAPEVINE, Tex. - Oct. 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- DonateIT LLC (Donate Information Technology, www.donateit.us) is a start-up with a special mission. The company turns used technology donations - computers, servers, printers, ink jet cartridges, media players and cell phones - into cash for non-profits, churches and schools.

DonateITThe company came from the experiences of its founders Cathi Coan and Barry Crossno. Ms. Coan is the owner of Techway Services, a national provider of computer recycling and data destruction services. Mr. Crossno is a former fundraiser for non-profit causes and is currently a marketing consultant to Techway Services. While talking about the direction of Techway, they realized that certain clients kept telling them the same story. They liked to donate a portion of their IT equipment to charity, but the donation process was sometimes difficult. The problem was many charities didn't have the expertise to process the equipment. As a result, many charities only wanted the newer equipment, didn't know what to do with the broken equipment, and didn't know how to properly erase the data on the donated hard-drives.

"It meant companies had to solve these problems before donating. It was a barrier," said Barry Crossno. DonateIT was created to solve these problems.

DonateIT has been operating in earnest since September and has signed up a number of charity partners (http://www.donateit.us/drop-off-events-announcements/). A few of these new charity partners are already collecting equipment and receiving checks. Interest in the program has been strong, because charities are looking for new ways to increase donations from their existing givers and DonateIT makes this possible. Also, DonateIT charges no fees for charities to participate. DonateIT makes money if their charity partners are making money. "We succeed if our charity partners succeed. That's our focus," says Barry Crossno.

The DonateIT program works by having charity partners ask for and accumulate donations. DonateIT then picks up the collected equipment, destroys the data, recycles the unusable items and sells the rest. When the process is over, the charity receives a check.

From Cathi Coan, "We're really proud of this company. With DonateIT, everyone wins-the charities, the donors and the environment."

Why It Works - By the Numbers
    * 3/4 of all computers ever bought in the USA are stored in homes and warehouses. (National Safety Council Study, 2002)

    * Only 11% of computers retired during 2001 were recycled. (IAER Report)

    * In 2003, 58 million computers were sold in the United States alone. (Gartner Research)

    * As of 2005, 500 million cell phones in the USA were estimated to be stockpiled by consumers waiting for recycling. (INFORM Study)

    * In the next five years, consumers in the USA are expected to discard roughly 500 million PCs, 1.5 Billion inkjet cartridges, and 750 million used cell phones. (various sources)


About DonateIT (Donate Information Technology)

DonateIT is an innovative fundraising company that helps charities and schools turn a wide range of used technology donations like computers, cell phones and printer cartridges into cash to fulfill their missions.

For additional information, contact Barry Crossno toll free 888-364-8804 ext. 801 or visit: www.donateit.us.

Welfare Chislers, Able-Bodied Loafers Win Big – Welfare Fraud Game Banned in the 80’s Back in Print

ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Oct. 11 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- WelfareGame.com announced today that it has re-released the controversial board game, "Public Assistance: Why Bother Working for a Living?" in both an economy version and a deluxe version. The game pits players on the Able-bodied Welfare Recipient's Promenade against those in the Working Person's Rut. Those on the Welfare Promenade begin with $1,000 and get $300 more for each out-of-wedlock child.

Public Assistance: Why Bother Working for a Living?They also get money by playing the lottery and the horses, getting involved in four "Saturday Night" crimes - armed robbery, gambling, drugs, and prostitution-and drawing from 50 "Welfare Benefit" cards. Players stuck in the Working Person's Rut draw "Working Person's Burden" cards, and do their best to stretch out their meager paychecks, hoping to get back on the Welfare Promenade.

In the 1980's, Welfare officials in Washington put into operation a successful nationwide plan to remove the game from the retail marketplace. The details of this government-directed censorship are documented at www.welfaregame.com.

Writer and co-inventor Bob Johnson is billing the re-released game, a big slice of Americana, as the "Classic Welfare Fraud Edition," giving working folks an opportunity to experience for themselves all the welfare scams they've been financing for years.

"When knee-jerk critics refer to the game as a vicious brand of stereotyping, as perpetuating out-dated myths, or as sexist and racist, I am quick to remind them that we didn't invent the welfare game, government liberals did; we just put it in a box," Mr. Johnson said.

The economy version ($17.90) features a playing surface on 12 point gloss stock with sheets of welfare benefit cards, working person's burden cards, and out-of-wedlock children that must be cut out. The playing surface of the deluxe version ($33.90) is spill-proof vinyl, and the cards come in stacks ready for play. Both versions come with over half-a-million dollars in stacked play money: we're talking serious welfare fraud here.

"There's a whole generation that hasn't even seen this great welfare fraud game," Mr. Johnson said. "This is a game every family can afford and every family should own," he added.

The fun game is also "guaranteed" to help rehabilitate "lingering liberals." The humorous Web site offers "proof" of this from the worlds of science, religion, and medicine.

Electronic Development Solutions Announces an Advancement in Sidewall Pinhole Detection for Formed Foils Used in Pharmaceutical, Medical and Food Packaging

Author: Electronic Development Solutions, Inc
Dateline: Tue, 10 Oct 2006

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “TAMPA, Fla. - Oct. 10 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Electronic Development Solutions, Inc announces the latest version of its Alumivision pinhole detector line. The Alumivision MDA provides sidewall pinhole inspection of formed cavities and reduces material waste when compared to conventional systems.”



A R T I C L E:

TAMPA, Fla. - Oct. 10 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Electronic Development Solutions, Inc announces the latest version of its Alumivision pinhole detector line. The Alumivision MDA provides sidewall pinhole inspection of formed cavities and reduces material waste when compared to conventional systems.

Conventional pinhole detectors detect vertically directed light emerging through the material being inspected. As a consequence, pinholes that are at an angle from horizontal (e.g. sidewall pinholes) present a smaller area to the vertically directed light and require more sensitivity to detect. Increasing the pinhole sensitivity to detect the sidewall pinholes results in unnecessary rejection of acceptable size pinholes in flat (horizontal) foil areas. Note that all thin foils are expected to have some pinholes. It is only necessary to reject material with pinholes above a predetermined size for a given product. To do otherwise is a waste of material and money.

The Alumivision MDA utilizes a different technology to detect sidewall pinholes. Instead of only vertically directed light, it utilizes multi-directional light and an expanded detection area with a light containment design. The multi-directional light, as its name implies, penetrates the sidewall pinhole from multiple angles. The light emerging from the sidewall pinhole is correspondingly at multiple angles from vertical and requires a means to capture it from a wider area than is required for only vertically directed light.

The Alumivision MDA does that via the expanded detection area and light containment. Since the sidewall pinhole has light impinging from multiple angles, the full area of the sidewall pinhole is illuminated and the emerging light is proportional to the true size of the pinhole. The Alumivision MDA provides the benefit of cavity sidewall pinhole detection without the penalty of wasted material, time and money.
