How can San Francisco be the most polluted city in the World ?

People wearing Air Mask in San Francisco

India Gate – Air pollution in Delhi – India

San Francisco – Before and After pollution

We had gone to Amsterdam for a destination wedding and heard about the Paradise fire but I had no idea of the impact it had on the Bay Area air quality.

Passive inspired Energy Efficient homes save up to 80% of the energy and also have the best air quality. SIDCO Homes build a home in San Jose with indoor air quality index of less than 50 today.”

— Mohan Mahal

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — I had just landed at the San Francisco airport and when I was waiting for the ride I saw people wearing masks. I turned around and looked back at the airport to confirm that I was at San Francisco airport and not in New Delhi.

I had never seen such a site in Bay Area where the air quality index was Very Unhealthy air quality. Next day I saw the air quality index maps and learned that the air quality in Chico next to Paradise fire was over 500 and San Jose air quality is Very Unhealthy.

I begin to question myself why and “How can San Francisco be the most polluted city in the world.” I left home in New Delhi to move to USA for it is the best place to get education, find work, enjoy the quality of life where the air is clean and the environment is healthy for all. After seeing the smog in the area because of the fire in Chico, I concluded that any thing is possible this could be the affect of the climate change? Our president Donald Trump has come to California to visit the affected site with fire may be he will realize that climate change is not a hoax and may have a change of heart and revisit the Paris Agreement to join the rest of the countries.

This high air quality index is an eye opener for all of us who do not live in the third world countries or the cities in the world that are polluted most of the times. New Delhi’s air index after Diwali festival was over 500, which is Hazardous air quality in most of the places in and around Delhi. So we can now imagine what life is like for the people living where the air is so polluted and sky is always smoggy and you cannot see things clearly during the daylight.

Living consistently in such an environment can have an adverse affects on your health please consult with your doctor for precautions and how to avoid exposure to bad quality air. One of the recommendations is to stay indoors where the air quality is better then outside air mostly.

I have recently built a very Energy Efficient Home where I use fresh air form outside to provide clean air as the makeup air rather then using the recycled air all the time. To my surprise I got a call from Cathy Haire my HVAC consultant advising me to put a switch so we can turn off the dampers to hold off the fresh air if the quality of the air outside is verse than the indoor air quality. I immediately agreed to install a switch to take care of this situation in San Jose, California.

We spend most of our life in the buildings and homes. So it is very important that these places are built to provide clean air. We have made a lot of progress in the commercial buildings where we build LEED Certified buildings, which conserve more energy and use sustainable building practices and pay attention to the air quality for the occupants. But for the Residential homes it is left to the contractors and the city code, which requires basic air filtration and normal insulation.

I was in Paris when China the largest producer of emissions and USA the largest per capita emitter of emissions representing 40 percent of the global emissions formerly signed the Paris Agreement. As of today USA is not a part of the team. What President Barack Obama had accomplished President Trump got out of the treaty.

My curiosity to build the Energy Efficient Homes without using fossil fuel took me to a conference in Germany to learn about the Passive Homes from Dr. Wolfgang Feist. Now I build Passive Homes and I build them with the best air quality and energy conservation.

Know people will value the homes that are built by SIDCO Homes Inc – Sustainable Innovative Design & Construction because we build homes to the Highest Energy Efficient standards. Our goal is to build homes that minimize the use of gas or any burning fossil fuel. Each home comes with prepaid solar panels warranted for 25 years. The homes have a car charging station for an electric car.

SIDCO Homes have no heating furnace in the house, we have switched over to the Heat Pump technology for heating and cooling, this is many times more efficient than the regular furnaces. The whole house is completely sealed with closed cell foam for insulation and air tightness. We perform the door blower test to check for leaks and the performance of the HVAC for the house. HERTZ test is conducted for the certification of the ducts, which are new and have a R8 rating for insulation.

The owner of the home Mr. Hiralal Lulla and Dr. Sulochina Lulla who is a specialist in allergies sees the value of the clean living environment. According to her any one with chronic respiratory disease will benefit living in a clean and healthy MERV 10 filtered comfortable living environment.

This air quality index in the Bay Area is a clear indicator that we should demand that building contractors and professionals should design and build homes with clean air quality that is monitored. The technology is here and we have the expertise to convert older homes and bring them to the standards approaching that of a passive home.

If you plan to do a major remodeling to the house demand that you want to make it Extremely Energy Efficient and have the air quality index of less than 50 which is good for a normal day.

Micro Job Market offers a Fair Trade Platform for Freelancers

mJobMarket.com offers simple interface to search and hire freelancers

Freelancers can join a new, online platform called Micro Job Market (mJobMarket.com) that offers a far better experience for the workers themselves.

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Freelancers can join a new, online platform called Micro Job Market (mJobMarket.com) that offers a far better experience for the workers themselves.

Micro Job Market is considered the first decentralized freelance platform. It takes 0 percent commission on any closed deal, provides support services to help freelancers build their brands, allows freelancers to contact clients directly, and more.

As a freelancer himself, company co-founder John Hirsch knows what a freelancer needs to succeed.

"All freelancers should sign up to mJobMarket because we allow freelancers to add links to their blog, website and even their profiles on other freelance sites," Hirsch said. “Link them all to mJobMarket.com, and you can start building your personal brand right away."

Depending on existing, centralized platforms might give freelancers an easy start, but it doesn't help to build an independent business in the long run, according to Hirsch.

Branding and relationship-building are essential to a freelancing business, but the major freelance platforms forbid freelancers from communicating directly with clients. As a result, freelancers can experience trouble getting their services noticed once they leave the platform.
Other services Micro Job Market provides include marketing tips, payment suggestions, useful legal documents and a supportive global community of freelancers.

The freelance economy is growing rapidly. According to the U.S. Freelancers Union, 35 percent of the U.S. workforce, or 55 million people, were freelancers in 2016. It is predicted that half of the U.S. workforce will be freelancers by 2020.

Freelancing is easy to start, and you can do it alongside your full-time job. As your private clientele grows, you can make it a full-time affair and reach financial freedom.

mJob Market calls on all freelancers who want to run a successful business to sign up and use the platform. Freelance service buyers who hire freelancers on mJob Market will benefit greatly, because they can contact and pay freelancers directly, it lowers the cost and direct communication is the key to a successful project.

The Westport Big & Tall Spring/ Summer 2019 Photoshoot Captures a Life of Luxury

CHARLOTTE, NC, UNITED STATES, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every year, the month of November marks the beginning of the busy Holiday retail season, but it is also a time when Westport Big & Tall makes essential preparations for its next selling season.

Westport specializes in high-end and luxury menswear, and is one of the few remaining retailers that consistently promotes its product through a flagship print catalog. It relies on a mix of traditional product photography and atmospheric fashion shots, which depict the affluent lifestyle of someone who has achieved their dreams. This makes for a creative way to show off the garments selected by Westport’s buyers, which are combined into interesting yet functional outfits and shown against a scenic backdrop in a unique location. All of this makes the experience of flipping through Westport’s catalogs and picking out new clothes feel like more than just another chore. It’s a way to give a customer new ideas to help them expand on their personal style, with some entertaining imagery thrown in for fun.

The setting for this season’s photoshoot is a magnificent 8,000 square foot, European-styled villa located in Jupiter Island, Florida. Every part of the villa’s exterior is painted stark white: from the building’s tiled rooftop, to the columns supporting the elegantly arched windows, to even the large vases and furniture on the outdoor patio. The all-white mansion sits on a massive green lawn, equally uniform in color and neatly trimmed like a golf course, flanked by tall palm trees.

The estate also includes various amenities and props that are perfect for Westport’s lifestyle-oriented photography. In the back is a private beach with a narrow dock, leading to the estate’s massive, 55-foot Azimut yacht – a luxury Italian-made vessel that’s a wonder to behold. And on the front tile-brick driveway stands a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé, which is also done in all-white and sporting a light cream leather interior. The vehicle’s clean, Art Deco-inspired interior and large 3-spoke steering wheel, along with the unmistakable Rolls Royce hood ornament over the front grille, make it a great complement to the opulent Floridian villa.

The catalog photo team has plenty of material to work with, and once the models are outfitted with the latest in Westport’s luxury menswear, the fashion photography will be ready to proceed. Westport executives Tom Altieri and Bob Beausoleil are on the set observing the progress and making adjustments where necessary. They know that when it comes to representing a luxury brand through a national catalog – every detail matters.

Westport Big & Tall works to provide high-caliber, stylistically relevant, and aesthetically appealing menswear to big and tall customers with discerning tastes. The Pre-Spring 2019 catalog will be mailed to customer right after Christmas, and will serve as an introduction to the upcoming Spring and Summer 2019 catalogs. All merchandise collections will be available for viewing and purchase on Westport Big & Tall’s website. Please also visit Westport’s Facebook page, Youtube channel, and Instagram for exclusive content and behind-the-scenes footage, or read the Westport Big & Tall Blog for specialized knowledge and articles pertaining directly to dressing the big and tall gentleman.

— John Reznikoff

WESTPORT, CONN., UNITED STATES, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — WESTPORT, Conn. – Items pertaining to Napoleon Bonaparte, Albert Einstein, JFK, George Patton, Abraham Lincoln and dozens of other luminaries throughout world history and popular culture can be purchased in time for holiday delivery during University Archives’ internet-only auction already up and online. Live bidding will begin Wednesday, Dec. 5th at 10:30 am Eastern.

As with all University Archives auctions, this one is packed with rare and highly collectible autographed documents, manuscripts, books, photos and relics. The full catalog showing all 284 lots can be viewed now, at www.UniversityArchives.com. Online bidding is being provided by Invaluable.com and LiveAuctioneers.com. Telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted.

“If payment is prompt, bidders can receive a truly unique gift item delivered in time for the holidays,” said John Reznikoff, the president and owner of University Archives. “This is our largest auction to date, in terms of value, and there are many rarities to be had. Who wouldn’t like to own a large and powerful bust of Napoleon, or a two-page letter hand-signed by him?”

The Napoleon lots are expected to do well in the international arena, where University Archives has been gaining a strong foothold in recent auctions. “We’re enjoying continued strength as the leader in Americana, with a rapidly expanding offering of foreign personages, which often sell to our international clientele,” Reznikoff said. “We have registered bidders in over 50 countries.”

The two-page letter, written in French in a clerical hand and signed by Napoleon (as “Napol” at the top of the second page, verso), was penned in Germany on March 29, 1807. The letter is addressed to Napoleon’s Minister of War, Henri Jacques Guillaume Clarke, chastising the Prince of Isenburg for disobeying orders and calling him “ridiculous.” It should sell for $2,000-$2,400.

It carries an estimate of $3,000-$4,000.

A 1909 metal casting of an 1860 “life mask” of Abraham Lincoln by Leonard Wells Volk (Am., 1828-1895), with the casting executed by Caproni Casts in Boston, should reach $7,000-$8,000. Also, a letter written in 1782 by George Washington, as Commander in Chief of the Continental Army, to New York Gov. George Clinton, expressing outrage over Native American and loyalist attacks on the New York frontier, four pages, signed, is expected to finish at $18,000-$20,000.

A single-page letter written and signed by Thomas Jefferson as President, dated Oct. 29, 1803, in which he invites the French Ambassador Louis-Andre Pichon to dinner, right after completion of the Louisiana Purchase, has an estimate of $9,000-$10,000; while a one-page letter written and signed by Alexander Hamilton on Jan. 31, 1799, to George W. Kirkland of Philadelphia, in which he supports Kirkland’s idea of Army recruiting at Tioga Point, should hit $5,000-$7,000.

A scarce engraving on rice paper of the Declaration of Independence, printed in 1848 by Peter Force, boasting remarkably exact renditions of the signers’ hands and perhaps one of as few as 500 copies issued, should command $6,000-$7,000; while a bi-fold manuscript document from 1779 signed by George Taylor (1716-1781), among the rarest of the Declaration signers since he only served for seven months in the Continental Congress, has an estimate of $18,000-$20,000.

A letter from 1947 written in German and signed by Albert Einstein, expressing appreciation for a 75th birthday present from a Mrs. Damann that prompted him to recall and sketch a childhood dexterity game called “Pigs into the Sty”, should reach $12,000-$14,000. Also, a letter penned extensively on all four sides by Charles Darwin, dated Feb. 9, 1861, in which he reflects on social and religious adversity while revising Origin of the Species, should rise to $6,000-$7,000.

An unframed 8 inch by 10 inch photograph of Babe Ruth, signed by the Bambino himself (“to my pal, Cyril, Sincerely, Babe Ruth”), depicting Ruth in street clothes, with a cigar in one hand, with a letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA, should breeze to $4,500-$5,000. Also, a huge black and white photo of Muhammed Ali, shown glowering over Sonny Liston, signed by Ali using a blue Sharpie and double matted in a 35 inch by 29 ½ inch frame, has an estimate of $800-$1,000.

A copy of the book Poems (N.Y., 1844) by Clement C. Moore, author of the classic Christmas poem A Visit From St. Nicholas (“Twas the night before Christmas….”), inscribed by Moore to Janet Drake de Kay (“with the respect of the author, Mar. 1846”) should garner $6,000-$8,000; while a partially printed document from 1793, signed by the poet (and legendary drinker) Robert Burns, in which he signs a permit to grab a cask of rum, is expected to gavel for $4,000-$5,000.

Royston Carr Asset Management Comments as EU Investor Sentiment Dips

Royston Carr Asset Management – In spite of a robust earnings season, investor sentiment in Europe remains unstable.

TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Royston Carr Asset Management analysts report that European equities lost ground last month in spite of the majority of businesses reporting strong earnings in the third quarter.

Europe's benchmark Stoxx 600 index decreased 6 percent in October, even after a rally of 1.7 percent in the final trade session.

Taylor Newman, Director of Mergers & Acquisitions at Royston Carr Asset Management says that although revenue and earnings-per-share growth stayed strong and the majority of European firms have maintained their full year guidance to the market, investor confidence remains unsteady.

A decline in demand from China for exports from the euro zone, growing trade tensions and Italy's budget issues have negatively affected European expansion sentiment. Royston Carr Asset Management analysts believe there may be room for recovery but that certain things will need to change.

Although defensive stocks have mostly outperformed expectations, Royston Carr Asset Management analysts say sectors which are more affected by global economic turmoil have sold off materially.

At the end of last month, 125 businesses on the Stoxx 600 index had reported earnings for the last quarter. More than a third of these companies’ results had exceeded market expectations. Consumer cyclicals, healthcare and technology have reported the highest number of earnings beats while basic materials and telecommunications reported the highest number of misses.

Royston Carr Asset Management analysts say Europe’s automotive sector is currently one of the least popular in Europe with investors showing concern over the effects of regulatory shifts in the industry and the US-China trade dispute.

Also contributing to a decrease in automotive sales in Europe in September was the introduction of new emissions regulations. This decline in sales impacted performance in the sector for the third quarter.

ChiXi Consultants – Short Week in US – Tech Stocks Continue to Lead Markets Lower

US Markets Closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday

Stocks got no reprieve on Tuesday.

MANHATTAN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Apple was the biggest drag on the Dow, as the index plummeted 551 points sending it into the red on the year.

The S&P 500 fell 1.82% on Tuesday and erased all of its year-to-date gains. The Nasdaq tumbled 1.7%, or 119.65 points and is down nearly 15% from its all-time highs.

Retail giant Target reported weaker-than-expected earnings for Q3 and sank more than 10% during Tuesday’s trading session. Same-store sales, a key metric for retailers, also came in lighter than anticipated. Home improvement chain Lowe’s and big-box retailer Best Buy also tanked following their earnings.

Crude oil joined the broader selloff in equities and plunged more than 6% to more than one-year lows and snapped a four-day winning streak. The commodity has been under pressure lately as global supply surplus concerns weigh on prices. Oil has fallen 30% from the four-year highs it hit in early October.

Economic calendar and earnings

With the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, earnings remain light on Wednesday and for the remainder of the week.

Retailers Foot Locker and Gap both reported better-than-expected earnings after the bell on Tuesday. Despite beats on both the top and bottom lines the stocks moved in opposite directions after hours. Foot Locker shares soared 12%, while Gap shares fell 1%.

Deere is set to report Q3 financial results before market open on Wednesday.

On the back of the housing starts and building permit data released on Tuesday, existing home sales and mortgage application data will be released on Wednesday morning. Economists polled by Bloomberg are expecting existing home sales to have grown 1% in October to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.20 million units. The housing market has been in focus lately as rising rates and higher costs have been hammering demand. Confidence in U.S. homebuilders is at its lowest level in two years.

Blockchain-based International Remittance Project REMIIT Partners With HYCON

REMIIT Signs Partnership With HYCON to Expand International Remittance Ecosystem

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, November 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Blockchain-based international remittance project REMIIT announced on November 20th that it has signed a partnership with Glosfer/HYCON to collaborate on blockchain projects and international remittance services.

Under the agreement, REMIIT and Glosfer/HYCON will work toward mutual development utilizing the infrastructure of HYCON, a blockchain platform with its own mainnet. The two will also collaborate on establishing an international remittance service within the HYCON ecosystem.

REMIIT is a blockchain-based, decentralized remittance and payment platform. BluepanNet, the mother company of REMIIT that provides inexpensive and safe international remittance and trading service, launched the international cryptocurrency remittance service after its establishment in April 2015. Starting with the Philippines, service soon became available in six countries including China, Vietnam, Australia and Hong Kong. With a retention rate of 90%, REMIIT reduced time and cost for foreign workers transferring money to their home country.

REMIIT’s token economy is designed with REMI and REMD supplying consistent liquidity, which enhances stability and security of trading. REMI is listed on exchanges and therefore freely traded, while REMD tokens are provided to market participants as an incentive. Those who wish to use REMD for international remittance must first obtain REMI and stake it and then convert the tokens to REMD. To facilitate smooth exchange, an incentive is provided proportional to the amount of REMI being staked and the staking period.

CEO Taewon Kim of Glosfer/HYCON said, “With the partnership with REMIIT, a leader in blockchain-based international remittance service, the HYCON ecosystem will be able to expand to finance and international remittance services.”
Kim, an advisor to REMIIT, launched Korea’s first international cryptocurrency remittance service and developed it into a first-generation blockchain company in Korea.

HYCON, which recently succeeded in doubling the network’s transactional throughput capacity, and BluepanNet/REMIIT, leader of international cryptocurrency remittance service in Korea, are expected to create an unconventional ecosystem for a blockchain-based remittance and trading platform.

Glosfer/HYCON is planning the grand opening of the HYCON Adventure Platform in December. The HYCON Adventure Platform aims at creating a hub for HYCON where HYCON holders can participate in ICOs, airdrop events, markets, games and other events using HYCON in return for various benefits.

Holders will be charged a fee of 0.5%-3% in HYCON when they participate in the HYCON Adventure Platform. All coins used to participate in the events except for the fees are returned to the holders and they can also receive other cryptocurrency airdrops. Glosfer/HYCON aims to expand HYCON’s ecosystem with the Adventure Platform and the international remittance service.

REMIT是基于区块链的去中心化汇款及支付结算平台。REMIE平台一直致力于实现安全且价格低廉的跨境汇款及交易。开发这一平台的BluepanNet成立于2015年4月,其后开始提供加密货币跨境汇款服务。该服务最早于菲律宾起步,目前可汇款范围已经扩大至中国、越南、澳大利亚、香港等6个国家和地区,服务的重复使用率高达90%,已实现了帮助移居劳动者向本国汇款时节省时间及费用的目的。

REMIT代币经济(token economy)为了提高交易的稳定性和安全性而采取了双重机制,将代币分为REMI及REMD,以此来保证稳定的流动性供给。REMI在外部交易所上市可进行自由交易,而REMD则作为市场参与者的激励。想要使用REMD进行跨境汇款时,用户首先要获得REMI,在进行权益累积(staking)后兑换成REMD。为了保证兑换的顺利进行, REMIT把一定比率的REMI作为激励,且激励与进行权益累积的REMI金额及时间成正比 。

Glosfer•HYCON的代表金泰元表示:“在区块链跨境汇款领域,REMIT一直扮演着领军企业的角色,通过这次与REMIT达成的伙伴关系,将有望构建HYCON生态系统所追求实现的的金融领域,并实现跨境汇款服务领域的进一步扩大。 ”

Glosfer•HYCON的代表金泰元目前担任REMIT的顾问,他在韩国国内开创了加密货币跨境汇款服务的先河,并成功将其发展为韩国第一代区块链企业。
处理速度成功翻倍的技术集约型加密货币HYCON与韩国国内加密货币跨境汇款服务领域的领军企业BluepanNet•REMIT将携手打造出“基于区块链的汇款交易平台”生态系统,这将改变跨境汇款之版图,双方将成功创造出协同效应。

Glosfer•HYCON目前正在筹备将于下月盛大开启的“HYCON冒险平台(HYCON ADVENTURE PLATFORM)”。“HYCON冒险平台” 旨在构建以HYCON作为参与方式的中心枢纽,在这一平台上可以使用自身拥有的HYCON参与ICO、空投、活动、市场以及迷你游戏等优惠服务。

在原有的ICO平台中,用户仅可将参与的全部加密货币进行兑换。而“HYCON冒险平台”则为国际首创新型平台,本平台将服务使用费(0.5%~3%)以HYCON的形式支付,除去服务使用费以外,其余部分均以HYCON的形式被返还,且其他加密货币也可以获得空投。凭借“HYCON冒险平台”以及“跨境汇款服务”,HYCON所构建的生态系将在相应领域将展露头角
