Don’t you wish you didn’t have to learn life’s lessons the hard way?
Beloved school teacher and guidance counselor, Ethel Pearson Levine, lived to age 101.

Over a period of 30 years, she wrote monthly articles for the Sunrise Lakes community in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her articles embrace universal subjects from marriage and divorce to relationships, aging, and death. She took on subjects that affect us all. Within each article, there’s a message, an affirmation, for living a meaningful life. This book is a collection of selected articles from that monthly news magazine, edited by her grandson,
Gary Springer. Available at:
https://store.bookbaby.com/book/Wisdom-of-a-Life-Well-Lived

“I just finished reading the book. I loved it and found it so inspiring. Your grandmother and my 2nd grade teacher was one very special lady.
A ‘must read’ for all seniors.”
– Sherry Koslov, former student

Ethel Levine was a wonderful teacher. I loved her. She was very kind. I had a problem in 2nd grade. I became very nearsighted and couldn't see the board. She would let me come up to the front to copy my work. She tested my eyes and found out I needed glasses. It changed my life.”

– Judy Lerner Cohen, former student

Asia Attracting Investors With Opportunities In Adhesives Market

Asia Attracting Investors With Opportunities In Adhesives Market

Asia Attracting Investors With Opportunities In Adhesives Market

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, September 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Demand for adhesives continues to grow in countries such as India and China, driving the Asia adhesives market. These countries are expected to present good opportunities in the adhesives market in the period from 2016 to 2020 according to “Adhesives Market Global Report 2017” by The Business Research Company (TBRC). According to TBRC analysis, the Asia adhesives market was valued at $203 billion in 2016, and it is expected to reach around $300 billion by 2020 with projected forecast growth of 10%. China’s market of adhesives was valued at $137 billion in 2016, and it is expected to grow to $192 billion by 2020. The market’s forecast growth is estimated to be 9%. India is also expected to attract investors in the adhesives market in the period from 2016 to 2020. The market in India was valued at $3 billion in 2016. TBRC expects the market to grow at 7.3% growth rate. Both countries account for double digit growth rates in automobile and construction industries where adhesives are widely used. The trend of making lightweight and fuel-efficient vehicles is encouraging the use of aluminum and other materials to decrease the weight of vehicles, which is boosting the use of adhesives in automobiles (http://www.adhesivesmag.com/articles/95380-rising-demand-from-end-users-in-asia-pacific-is-leading-global-automotive-adhesives-market), while the massive infrastructure building in the country continues driving the use of adhesives in the commercial and residential construction.
Adhesives are substances applied to one surface or both surfaces of two separate items that binds them together and resists their separation. The term ‘adhesives’ is used interchangeably with glue, cement, mucilage, or paste. The adhesives industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing adhesives, glues and caulking compounds. The adhesives manufacturing industry procures raw materials such as resins, polymers, additives and solvents from suppliers and sends them to formulators to combine, mix, process and produce adhesives. After packaging, the adhesives are supplied to the end-user market for use in a wide range of bonding and sealing purposes. They are used in packaging, construction, automobiles, lamination, footwear and other industries and by retail consumers for basic household activities.
Europe and Americas regions also provide good opportunities in the adhesives market with fast growing countries such as Germany and Brazil. Germany adhesives market is projected to show a growth of 9.7% growing from $2 billion in 2016 to $2.9 billion in 2020. Brazil’s growth is estimated to be the fourth, among all countries covered, at 5.36%. The market is going to reach $1.8 billion by 2020. Germany’s adhesives strong growth is closely associated with the automobile industry in the country which is a homeland for Audi, BMW and Volkswagen. The adhesives market growth in Brazil is closely related to emerging industries in the country such as automotive, construction, and packaging.
As one of the main trends in the adhesives market TBRC recommends chemicals companies to emerge new adhesive types to cater to the needs of various industries. The various types of adhesives being developed are pressure-sensitive adhesives, pre-cut layered adhesive films and stick-to-skin adhesives. Pressure-sensitive adhesives are used in HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) duct work, automotive assembly and sound/vibration damping films. Pre-cut layered adhesive films that address vibration and noise concerns save time in assembly. Stick-to-skin adhesives are used in monitoring and drug delivery devices.

New Certification Puts LightWerks in the Spotlight!

Local, woman-owned and certified! All the more reason to do business with LightWerks. Our latest certifications put us in the spotlight.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Local, woman-owned and certified! All the more reason to do business with LightWerks. Our latest certifications put us in the spotlight as a company you’ll want to hire.

“Our Small and Woman Owned Business certifications now helps us to expand our network and collaborate with other like-minded enterprises to support women-owned businesses and other diversity initiatives,” said Gina Riberi, President of LightWerks Communications Systems, Inc.

Our certification shows that we have successfully met the stringent federal qualifications of the National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC). The NWBOC certifies Women Business Enterprise (WBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE) and Veteran Business Enterprise (VBE). Certifications are based on gender, race or veteran status of a
business owner.

Most publicly-held and large private corporations track or have programs for doing business with women, minority, and veteran business owners. Furthermore, customers are trending to consciously seek out women-owned businesses and other diversity rich enterprises.

“As a business owner for twenty-one years, we have purposefully supported diversity in the marketplace,” said Riberi. “Much of our success is attributed to the contributions of the small businesses we have chosen to
work.”

“As a graduate of a women’s college and the first class at Boston University Law School to be 51% women, it is extremely exciting to see continued growth and empowerment of women-owned ventures and leadership,” states Riberi. Women-owned businesses currently represent a $3 trillion network that shows no signs of slowing down.

“The special recognition will also help us to better serve the public sector,” added Riberi. “Many municipalities and government agencies engage in supplier diversity programs. Having this vetted certification gives purchasing agents administrative ease and confidence that they are dealing with a bona fide small woman-owned and operated a business.”

Why Hire Us?
For over twenty years, LightWerks has been a leader in providing custom audio-visual solutions throughout California, and more recently in the Pacific Northwest. We have helped nimble two-person start-ups to significant municipalities and universities optimize their communications and opportunities. We have served business leaders, educators, medical
professionals, consumers, the public sector, and creative industries to better collaborate and communicate through interactive technology, cloud-based conferencing, and high-quality audio-visual products.

At LightWerks, we believe that being professionally certified is crucial to a high-quality, high-performance audio-visual integrated system. Our expert AV team has completed a wide variety of industry certification programs to
ensure that the engineering, design, programming, installation, and training for your AV system is done right every time. To improve efficiency, increase collaboration, and enhance presentations in your organization and

Belina C. Nernberg (5th from right) along with executives, management and staff from 1Heart franchise locations during the franchisee business conference held last September 8, 2017 at 1Heart corporate headquarters.

1Heart’s Franchisee 3rd Qtr. Business Academy Training showed a strong, growing franchise with reinforced synergy among seasoned and new 1Heart business owners.

1Heart has so far been very successful and has experienced steady growth since the company started franchising few years ago.”

— Randolph Clarito

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Leaders of various 1Heart franchise locations such as Los Angeles County, Ventura County, and some out of State converged at 1Heart's Corporate Headquarters last September 8, 2017 to form improved business strategies that would benefit 1Heart’s further success in the home care industry. The meeting was led by its CEO/Founder, Belina C. Nernberg and Director of Business and Franchise Development, Randolph Clarito.

The Business Conference focused on: Becoming an Effective and Successful Franchisee by doing business the 1Heart way.  Continuing education and training on the business system and processes were conducted by the heads of the HR/Staffing, Marketing, Accounting and Sales Departments.  Some of the areas discussed were with regards to business revenue generation, senior care management and quality assurance. The Conference ended with the sharing of ideas and renewed commitment to grow the 1Heart Brand in all 1Heart Franchise offices.

“This meeting has been a showcase of great ideas from all of 1Heart and I’m glad that all our Franchisees are as committed as we are at Corporate to build our brand nationwide.  We are celebrating our 14th year of operating in this thriving senior care industry and our business model has proven to be successful and effective. This is evident with our franchise locations that have shown increased revenue as they offer 1Heart’s services to more seniors in their respective areas.  It’s really great to know that 1Heart keeps getting better year after year. It is a winning culture.” says Belina.

“This kind of industry as with other businesses is ever changing. 1Heart has so far been very successful and has experienced steady growth since the company started franchising a few years ago. This success has enabled us to continue our expansion. In fact, we are currently offering franchise locations in the following states of Texas, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and California. And although we have received accolades here and there, we do not rest on our laurels and continue to innovate and adapt to the ever-changing market. We continue to improve on what we already have established and have executed programs and campaigns that helped us generate more increased visibility not only via traditional direct referral marketing and print but also, through online marketing such as website, social media, and email. Learning from the previous 2nd quarter Business Academy training on ’organizational effectiveness’, I am very glad that our franchise locations are implementing these programs and constantly finding other ways and means to further grow their 1Heart franchise office. I can say that this business conference has truly been very beneficial for the whole 1Heart to dominate, innovate and expand in the coming years. This is definitely something to look forward to.” says Randolph.

GlobalSim to Upgrade VALE Simulators and Continue Collaboration with Brazilian Company

VALE was visiting GlobalSim’s Headquarters in Sandy, Utah, to design and facilitate new engineering studies for the bucket wheel reclaimer simulator.

SANDY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — GlobalSim, Inc. has a long reputation in the field of simulation. Beyond crane simulators, GlobalSim has worked on projects with governments, defense contractors and multi-national corporations seeking custom solutions.

In 2012, GlobalSim was contracted by a Brazilian company, VALE, to create a customized bucket wheel reclaimer simulator. This project involved an extensive amount of software engineering and collaboration. The result was a full mission trainer that exceeded the expectations of VALE.

A few weeks ago, VALE was visiting GlobalSim’s Headquarters in Sandy, Utah, to design and facilitate new engineering studies for the bucket wheel reclaimer simulator. This requires an upgrade of certain features within the system based on changes in pile sizes, material densities, and reclaiming techniques. There will also be a modification to the arena to facilitate simulation for both Tubarao and Sao Luis mineral terminals.

“It’s very easy to make adjustments that might not have been seen in the beginning. GlobalSim has been so flexible in seeing our vision,” remarked Jose Silverio, bucket reclaiming expert at VALE. VALE is one of the world’s largest iron and ore producers – therefore, efficiency and productivity are of equal importance. “Before having simulators, we would have to train our operators on the actual machine which was a loss in productivity. Now, we train our operators on the simulators which has increased our productivity,” remarked Paulo Brandao, Project Manager at VALE.

GlobalSim’s Director of Product Management, Von Colborn and Lead Architect, Stanislav Borodai, combined have over 50 years of experience in software engineering and design. Colborn and Borodai have been working very closely with VALE since the beginning. “The benefit of our partnership is the quality – we have had this simulator operating flawlessly since the beginning (2012),” remarked Paulo.

GlobalSim anticipates to have this project completed within the next few months.

Teams from companies in Houston show the impact of their wellness programs by training for and conquering a 3-course fitness challenge hosted by Fit Company.

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, September 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — On September 16, 2017 participants from companies located in the Houston Texas area took part in the Fit Company Challenge, a corporate wellness event hosted by the Fit Company Institute. The challenge provided area companies an opportunity to come together as a team and spend a morning exercising, pushing their physical and mental limits and showing the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Companies split their team into squads of 3 to 4 people who worked together to complete a variety of fitness stations to challenge their fitness level and earn points for their company. Teams chose what level to go through each course which allowed participants of all fitness levels to push their physical fitness without going too far out of their comfort zone.

For the 1st Fall Challenge in Houston PinnacleART took the top spot in the Large Division. From PinnacleART’s team captain Lindsay Carter, “The Fit Company Challenge was a physically and mentally demanding experience that highlighted new exercises that we as individuals can incorporate into our fit lifestyle. In our small teams, we were able to meet new people within the company and build camaraderie. Overall, it was a wonderful way to see the efforts of our Workplace Wellness committee come to life and make a real impact on our employees’ lifestyle and morale.”

In their 3rd year participating, Walker Elliott came out stronger then ever and took 1st place in the Small team division. From team captain Marianne Thai “Walker Elliott has participated in this event for the past 3 years, and every year we come back stronger and better prepared. We're up to 60% of employee participation who have trained and competed. We train together as a team and encourage healthier eating regimens, which has led to overall healthier lifestyles for everyone. We look forward to participating again in the Spring!”

On event date, volunteers assisted the contenders through the courses from Texas State Department of Health and Human Performance, and RightFit Personal Training (www.rightfitpersonaltraining.com). Participants challenged their strength, conditioning, power, agility, and ended with a test of endurance to show their companies and colleagues that they practice what they preach.
