San Francisco, CA (MMD Newswire) January 23, 2013 -- Today, millions of people use Google apps to manage their everyday business. From free email services like Gmail to cloud storage over Google Drive, Google apps seem to become a more important part of our lives every day.
But many people haven't stopped to think what would happen if their Google apps data were to suddenly disappear. Google apps data could be wiped for many different reasons. The user could forget their password or accidentally delete an important file, for example. In other cases, malicious individuals wish to do harm upon a company or person.
That's why Google backup services are becoming increasingly popular. And when it comes to Google apps backup services, two companies are leading the way. Those two companies are Backupify and Spanning, each of which aim to impress customers with affordable and reliable Google app backup services.
Every day, thousands of people search for the difference between Backupify vs Spanning online. And major publications like BusinessInsider.com are starting to take note. In an article entitled, "How to Backup Your Computer", BusinessInsider.com chose Backupify. In other words, it looks like Backupify won at least one battle in the struggle between Backupify versus Spanning.
A spokesperson for Backupify weighed in on BusinessInsider.com's decision and why Backupify is so important:
"We were thrilled to be chosen by BusinessInsider.com as one of the world's safest and easiest ways to backup personal data. With more and more people depending on Google apps and services every day, businesses and consumers are starting to realize how important data backup can be."
Backupify seeks to win over consumers with a number of useful tools, including dashboard notifications for easy centralized management as well as CloudSight Search, which allows domain administrators to instantly locate any item stored on any of the cloud storage servers.
In the battle between Backupify vs Spanning, Backupify is also one of the few services that can back up some of the world's most popular websites and accounts. In addition to backing up Google Apps, Backupify will also backup Facebook, Twitter, Flickr accounts, and more. Since many businesses and consumers depend on social media every day, Backupify promises that backing up online accounts is an easy and effective way to.
The Backupify spokesperson acknowledged that Google's services and apps are incredibly stable. Downtime is rare for the world's largest search engine, but that doesn't mean consumers should completely ignore the risks of leaving personal data online:
"Google does a very good job of protecting its data and safeguarding its apps, but its security can be lax in some areas. It doesn't protect against accidental or malicious deletion, for example, which means businesses and consumers can place themselves at a substantial amount of risk."
About Backupify: Backupify is a leading online backup solution for Google Apps like Gmail, Calendar, and Contacts. Backupify aims to make backing up any type of cloud storage information as easy as possible for consumers.

January 25, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- Damon Rawls brings a seven step plan for aspiring entrepreneurs to make their dream of becoming successful businessman, real. Businessmen start from some place and that time is very crucial and decisive as it decides whether the business will rise or fall. The seven step plan helps the new entrepreneurs to gain enough skills required for running a growing and profitable business.
The first step amongst these seven is to gather the information from the market and from other stake holders such as vendors and customers. A good research ensures that the business goes profitable while its operations. This makes the business give better output after getting functional for the full run. Business start up requires pre-planning and that can be done only after thorough research of the whole market. The biggest decision that an entrepreneur has to make is probably about the doing or not doing of a business at all. It is advised by Damon Rawls not to start a business that is not expected to end up in profit. Several entrepreneurs find themselves entangled when they are unable to easily close a business that gives them losses while operational. To avoid these circumstances, it is better not to make a bad decision in the first place.
Choosing the best ownership type is the third step suggested by Damon Rawls in his book for successful entrepreneurship. The registration type selection is crucial for a business to end up in profit or loss. The book also tells the beginner entrepreneurs about how to purchase a business or a franchise of an already functional business and it also tells about which business to buy and which not to.
Amongst the most important skills required to start business is to learn about how to book keep the records and how to handle the finances. If these functions are not performed well enough, then the business can end up in loss due to false statements. The book also tells about how to do E commerce for the businesses that have just started. In this second last step, the learner entrepreneurs are introduced to the knowledge of how the electronic commerce can positively affect them. Last but not the least comes marketing of the business that makes it all happen for the business. The book for learner entrepreneurs by Damon Rawls tells all about marketing the products and services on different platforms to attract more customers and increase the revenues.

The Vapor Bar Opened January 18th in Rowlett to Service the Garland, Mesquite, Rockwall and Rowlett area
Rowlett, Texas (MMD Newswire) January 28, 2013 -- The Vapor Bar is a Professional Electronic Cigarette Store (already operating in McKinney, TX and Grapevine, Tx) that will concentrate on community education regarding professional grade electronic vaping units, the ease of switching from traditional analog to electronic cigarettes , and finding the right equipment that will get the customer to switch, save money and gain freedom from smoking.

Schell Hammel, the owner of The Vapor Bar, has a personal drive. "I have two Grandfathers and a Grandmother that all died of lung cancer. This is personal for me!

Pompano Beach, Florida (MMD Newswire) January 28, 2013 -- Some years ago, I was told of a new product coming out in the market that was worthy of my investing. The investment in this product seemed crazy at the time. Imagine, bottling water and trying to sell it to the masses. Water was readily available and as close as the kitchen tap. Within several years, a new industry grew up around bottling water. I missed the boat, did not invest and missed the opportunity of a lifetime. My next investment opportunity was the notion of bottling Iced Tea as an alternative to carbonated soda. How could an Iced Tea compete with soda? Carbonated soda had a firm grip on the market. Well you know what happened, the market exploded; but not with me in it. While I was on a roll of missed opportunities, how about GPS Navigation? I had first heard about this system for the navigation on ships and airliners. Rumors were that it would available for your own car soon. I never checked out the rumors and before long, it was available as a must have accessory on most vehicles.
One hard lesson learned by all this was, when opportunity knocks, I need to seize upon that moment and take immediate action or I will be left standing at the station still waiting for my turn at windfall profit. Well this time, I am not missing this one. Such an opportunity can be seen at the World of Concrete, February 5-8th at the Las Vegas Convention Center. In an obscure booth, N968, there will be on display this generation's greatest new product. It represents a new paradigm in one of the world's largest market place. Here, again you and I can find out about the next great opportunity knocking at our door. It will be hidden amongst the giant banners of others and the extravagant displays of the multinational cement companies. But there, amongst that backdrop of opulence, a little company from South Florida will announce their discovery in science and technology to the World.
This company, without the benefits of great laboratories, huge academic grants or government research funds, discovered a new paradigm in building materials which will single handedly change the cities we live in, the highways we drive upon, and even the air we breathe. The company is called Blue World Crete. "God gave us the answer to many questions and embedded it right in front of our eyes; it's called Nature", said Art Galietti, COO. Blue World Crete's scientists, through years of research, have broken the code of bio-mineralization used by crustaceans for untold centuries to form their shells. Utilizing the natural raw material of algae, Blue World Crete scientists have discovered a proprietary methodology that encourages bio-mineralization to occur quickly in real time, resulting in a cementitious building material superior to traditional Portland cement.
Mr. Galietti further stated, "We discovered one of the most perfect binders of all time". Developed from an algae extract, it creates a covalent bond with other materials such has not been seen in the Cement Industry. And best of all, this cement is inexpensive to manufacture and does not require kilns to bake limestone as in the Portland process. There is no release of CO2 or carcinogens such as heavy metals. It only requires a mix of natural materials containing alumina, silica and/or many other Pozzolan materials. Water is the catalyst, any water, even salt water. This is the day of a new building material. This new cement is called Geo-Blue Crete™. Blue World Crete Inc. licenses its technology to manufacturers and distributors worldwide. Their concrete is superior and surpasses Portland on ASTM standards. License fees are very modest as compared to the entry cost of Portland Cement manufacturing which is typically controlled by a few large international companies. Geo-Blue Crete is impressively less expensive than even Geo polymers, yet having many of the same superior characteristics without the problems.
Now the door is swung wide open to the opportunity of those who want to manufacture their own cement. Geo-Blue Crete is an elastopolymer which has superior tensile strength. Imagine a general purpose concrete that cures at 6,000 psi. Imagine a concrete that is acid resistant, alkali resistant and will not allow for the rusting of embedded metals. It will bond to any surface even old Portland and not delaminate. It has a coefficient of expansion close to zero. It is self insulating with an R f actor of 70 at a ½ inch. Imagine a concrete that can remain plastic from 3 hours to eight hours.
I may have missed out on bottled drinking water, bottled tea and GPS, but I don't think you or I want to miss out on this opportunity. I hope to see you at that inconspicuous booth, N968, at the World of Concrete, February 5th - the 8th, 2013. If you can't make it, you may want to contact Mr. Galietti yourself, 561-929-8384, email@example.com, or check out their web site at www.blueworldcrete.com.

They don't want to post a resume and let the world know that they may be in the market," Bishop says. The key for the company is that it allows candidates to remain anonymous throughout the process. By identifying sectors, geography, current title and more, hiring companies can be as specific as they want when searching for possible candidates.
Once profiles are selected, an email is generated to the candidate and notification is sent to them through an anonymous email feature. An alert is then sent to a candidate's phone and personal email notifying them that based on their profile; a specific company would be interested in speaking with them about an opportunity at their firm. At this point, the candidate can decide whether to respond to the opportunity or not.
Constructioncandidate.com will roll out in the greater Washington, D.C. market and expand throughout the Eastern Seaboard within the first few months with the goal of capturing the entire US market by year end.
Headquartered in Naples, FL, Constructioncandidate.com, LLC combines over 50 years of construction operations and hiring experience.

Launch of The Satcher Group
New firm to provide public health consulting and government affairs services
Atlanta, GA (MMD Newswire) January 29, 2013 -- The Satcher Group announced its official launch today. The firm provides government affairs services to Atlanta-based organizations and helps develop communication strategies for public health-related issues. Led by principals with extensive government experience, The Satcher Group core strategic philosophy is based on the fact that local organizations can be better represented in Washington by partners who are locally accessible and therefore have a deep understanding of the organization and the environment in which it operates. Additionally, The Satcher Group helps support efforts to bridge the gap between good public health science and the audience in need of that information.
"I am pleased to be a part of this effort," said Daraka Satcher, who serves as CEO and is also a partner with the Pendleton Group. "We saw a need and decided to develop an initiative to respond. I also look forward to enhancing our offerings by partnering with strategic allies."
The Satcher Group is already working closely with the Satcher Health Leadership Institute (SHLI) at Morehouse School of Medicine to develop initiatives to address the growing problem of head injuries and concussions in the competitive sports.
"We see this as a holistic initiative to deal with an array of public health issues on many levels," said David Satcher, Director of SHLI and Satcher Group senior advisor.
Helping companies navigate the government will be a hallmark of The Satcher Group. With over 20 years of combined Washington DC experience on Capitol Hill and in the Executive branch, its principals understand that in-depth knowledge of clients is more important to adequate representation than proximity to the Capitol. "We will focus on becoming a part of our client's culture so that we can make the most of partnerships with governmental entities," said Terri Winston, President of Government Affairs. "Those who understand DC know how to produce without unnecessarily walking the halls of Congress everyday. We'd rather be close to our clients than congressional offices. And when the time comes to do face-to-face meetings, Washington is only a little more than an hour away."

Ottawa, ON (MMD Newswire) January 16, 2013 -- Braintree Electric Light Department (BELD) has chosen MeterSense and CustomerConnect, Harris Utilities' meter data management (MDM) solution and customer engagement solution (CES), to make stronger operational decisions and bring the value and intelligence of its smart infrastructure directly into the hands of its customers.
MeterSense is an advanced MDM solution that transforms raw smart meter data into valuable business intelligence and enables utilities to improve business process and enhance customer service. CustomerConnect is a web-based data presentment tool that enables customers to access and interpret their consumption patterns, which helps them make smarter choices about resource use, reduce their bills and support utility conservation goals.
BELD, which has been a customer of Harris Utilities since 1999, provides electric services to approximately 16,000 residential and business customers in eastern Massachusetts. The utility began the deployment of its advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) in June 2011 and supplemented that new technology with an MDM and a CES to draw optimal value from its hardware investment. Specifically, it sought an MDM solution that integrated seamlessly with its existing enterprise solutions (including Harris Utilities' NorthStar customer information system), offered advanced analytics functions and automated routine processes. BELD also wanted a CES that was easy to use and could encourage more end users to participate in conservation programs.
MeterSense transforms raw meter data into actionable intelligence
"MeterSense was the obvious choice for our MDM solution because it offers a range of functionality that perfectly suits the needs of municipal electric utilities like us," said Gail Cohen, Business Manager at BELD. "We expect to use MeterSense to eliminate all the manual processes we follow now and therefore save time and money. We also plan to use the solution to help us make better business decisions about setting rates and making investments, and to perform deep analysis into events, alarms and losses on our grid so we can understand why these problems occur and solve them quickly."
Cohen added that MeterSense offered two further key benefits. First, its customizable rules engine enabled BELD to configure the application to the utility's precise needs and therefore yield the greatest value from AMI data. Second, its demonstrated capacity for integration gave the utility confidence that MeterSense would perform seamlessly with BELD's existing hardware and software technologies.
CustomerConnect engages end users in consumption-management initiatives
"We chose CustomerConnect because it is easy to use--and remarkably sophisticated," she said. "We expect that by presenting consumption data to our customers on a near-real time basis, CustomerConnect will create a powerful connection for our customers between energy consumed and money spent. We hope that every BELD customer will want to use CustomerConnect, and we want to use the solution to promote our energy-savings programs to target audiences."
Although BELD enjoys a long-standing relationship with Harris Utilities, the utility selected MeterSense and CustomerConnect because of the sophistication and simplicity of each solution and the potential of each to help BELD meet its operational and customer-service goals.
Norm Daigle, executive vice-president of Harris Utilities SmartWorks--the innovation engine of Harris Utilities that created MeterSense and CustomerConnect--said the BELD implementation confirms the additional value that an MDM and a customer engagement solution can bring to a utility's smart grid solution.
"AMI is an essential component of a smart grid solution," said Daigle. "Introduced on its own, however, it yields limited benefits. A utility that wants to get the most out of its smart grid investment must introduce an MDM like MeterSense to interpret raw data and turn that information into valuable business intelligence. A customer engagement solution such as CustomerConnect further boosts the value of the smart grid by connecting end users with meter data almost instantly."
Powerful and intuitive, MeterSense and CustomerConnect can help any utility get more value than ever before from its smart meters and bring the intelligence of the smart grid into the hands of its consumers.
About Braintree Electric Light Department (BELD)
BELD supplies electric service to approximately 16,000 residential and business customers in the town of Braintree, Massachusetts. The utility operates generation, transmission and distribution facilities across a 14-square-mile service territory that is served by 148 miles of overhead lines and 88 miles of underground lines. BELD operates three electric distribution substations and two 115 kilovolt (kV) transmission interchange substations, and is connected to two separate 115 kV NStar transmission lines that are part of the ISO New England electric grid. For more information, see www.beld.com/Electric/AboutEnergy.asp.
About Harris Utilities SmartWorks
SmartWorks is the innovation engine of Harris Utilities. Harris Utilities SmartWorks' current portfolio includes two key solutions. The first is MeterSense, a scalable, configurable and powerful meter data management (MDM) solution that quickly manages and intelligently interprets growing volumes of critical smart meter data. The second, CustomerConnect, is a customer engagement solution that gives customers direct, web-based access to account information and unprecedented insight into resource use, which helps utilities demonstrate the value of, and power behind, their smart infrastructure investments.

January 16, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- Keynote Speaker and Target Leadership President, Author, Professional Speaker, and Retired USAF A-10 Fighter Pilot, Jeff "Odie" Espenship, is presenting at the Oregon Governor's Occupational Safety and Health (GOSH) Conference, on March 5, 2013 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland.
Espenship will present his popular keynote "Getting Back to Basics is Vital to Superior Performance -- It's the Little Things that Matter" with hopes to motivate audience members to rethink and refocus their work behavior. He relates to audience members with personal stories of triumph and loss in and out of the cockpit; you will laugh and cry. Most importantly, Odie teaches what it means to be a Target Leader both on and off the job. "By setting high expectations, by speaking up, by listening to what is not being said, by overcoming complacency (the silent killer), by never assuming, and by communicating to understanding helps us achieve new heights in life and leadership," said Espenship.
His keynote is certain to strike a chord regarding this year's conference theme of "Safety: It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint." The goal of the conference is to provide an educational forum where employers, safety and health professionals, safety committee members, line supervisors, manufacturers, and distributors can come to gain state of the art knowledge and skills leading to self-sufficiency in their occupational safety and health programs. Attendees come from all industries and class topics cover a broad range of timely safety and health issues.
About Target Leadership
Target Leadership, founded by fighter pilots and operated by fighter pilots, use their experience as fighter pilots to motivate and encourage a company's "Fighter Pilots" (or employees) to embrace leadership safety systems in the workplace. Whether the audience is medical, manufacturing, chemical, utility, construction, banking, team sports, or retail, their programs will motivate the workforce to accelerate to new heights in leadership, safety, teamwork, and overall operational excellence.
The conference hosted by GOSH is the largest of its kind in the Northwest. It features over 150 workshops and sessions. Past conferences have hosted over 2500 people. This year marks its 33rd biennial year. It is being co-sponsored by Oregon OSHA, a division of the Department of Consumer and Business Services, and the Columbia-Willamette Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers.
