    Google search engine results suggest exterminating autistic people

    By Sparrow R. Jones

    February 27, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- This Saturday, scores of Autistic people from around the globe wrote poetry and essays to protest the negative image of autism reflected in the autocomplete options offered by the Google search engine.

    The popular search engine attempts to complete the sentence "Autistic people should ..." with such phrases as "be killed" and "be exterminated." The protest, called a Flash Blog, hopes to give Autistic people an opportunity to have their voices heard, increase positive awareness of autism, and counteract the negative suggestions of Google's autocomplete function. A second follow-up Flash Blog, focused on the equally negative Google results for "Autistic people are ..." is planned for next Saturday, March 2nd.

    "We, Autistics, want and deserve to live our lives with dignity and respect," writes Amy Sequenzia, noted Autistic poet. "Autistic people should have communication, inclusion and civil rights," writes Henry Frost, an Autistic student who recently attained fame for his successful campaign through for his right to attend the public school in his neighborhood. "We ALL benefit when we work toward ending oppression and respecting every person's right to exist," writes Ariane Zurcher, Huffington Post blogger and mother of Emma, an Autistic pre-teen.

    Links to all writing from last Saturday's Flash Blog can be found at and the results of next Saturday's Flash Blog will be published at Autistic advocates and their allies hope that this project will bring much-needed attention to the many positive attributes of Autistic people.

    Montreal (MMD Newswire) February 27, 2013 -- ALLiance Quebec 2.0, a brand new Quebec-based, non-profit organization committed to educating both domestically and abroad, officially throws its hat into the charged English-language rights scene. "Get ready for an entirely new message, brand and face to the Bill 101-anti-movement" President Ian Stone warns, particularly his would-be Anglophone (English) supporters, adding, "We are NOT your parents' Alliance Quebec and we're not playing games!"

    -"If our end goal is the eradication of Bill 101 and Bill 14, then we must consensus on a universal reframe of the entire topic such that economics, not language becomes the key discourse driver domestically. This is also how ALLiance Quebec 2.0 envisions us expanding our tent, to include ALL Quebecer's interests, by reframing Bill 101 and Bill 14 as a bread and butter issue that affects every dinner table in this province."

    ALLiance Quebec 2.0 Launces its International Awareness Raising Campaign

    ALLiance Quebec 2.0 launches with a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo:, a slick bilingual website, a quickly populating Youtube channel and a new line of Bill 101 Product/Merchandise that will be used as pledge gifts for supporters. ALLiance Quebec 2.0 is also developing a line of Bill 101 Apps, the first of which will be our second-by-second Bill 101-Cost-O-Meter clock. Plans to add an ANGLO-BULLYING live forum to our website are in the works.

    -"We want to diminish the power of the Bill 101 brand, and to that end, we are introducing an in-house line of Bill 101 products that should do the trick. ALLiance Quebec 2.0 is very proud of its in-house developed BILL 101 line including Bill 101: Le Board Game, Bill 101: Le Card Game, Bill 101: Le Toilet Paper and our children's book on bullying, "101 Reasons Why Bill Shouldn't Be Afraid to Go to School". Join your voice to ours! Help us spread the word, both here in Quebec and abroad, to the world at large.

    ABOUT BILL 101

    *Bill 101 is a Quebec law designed to protect the French language here in Quebec, but it does so at the expense of all other languages, cultures, people... Make no mistake, BILL 101 is a series of Human Rights Violations, legislated, by a western, developed democracy. Bill 101 is illegal according to the UN and by Canada's own Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms; in fact, last year as Canada celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Charter, the Quebec Liberal government was hiring new language police to patrol the streets of Montreal!

    ALLiance Quebec 2.0 is asking its international media friends for some much needed spotlighting on this - help us tell the world just what is going on here in one of Canada's provinces! We need the international spotlight of shame shone on us like never before... actually, we've never had it shone on us! Be the first to break this story internationally and help us restore democracy to Canada and Quebec.

    Water treatment technology from Bavaria/Germany successful in the U.S.

    Steingaden / Sacramento (MMD Newswire) February 28, 2013 -- Seccua GmbH, technology leader in the field of health-related drinking water treatment based in Upper Bavaria/Germany is happy to announce that the State of California / U.S. has certified its Virex Pro series water treatment system. Since California has the strictest standards for drinking water hygiene globally, this certification is a great success for Seccua in its further market development in the U.S. and worldwide.

    Since the beginning of February 2013, the Seccua Virex Pro series, together with the SeccuMem Pro filter modules are officially certified for use for complete removal (> 99.99%) of bacteria and parasites from drinking water in the State of California. After more than two years of detailed third party testing, the company from Bavaria received the sought-after certification as a filter for pathogen removal for its Virex Pro series water treatment system. California is well known for its highest standards of drinking water hygiene in the world, and for raising the highest admission demands on health-related technologies.

    For this approval, Seccua in a first step had to provide evidence that their filter modules SeccuMem Pro meet the strict guidelines for the removal of viruses, bacteria and parasites (i.e., greater 99 99% removal). For this, a Virex Pro system was installed and monitored in a public water training center and laboratory close to the town of Ely/MN for several months, supervised by the Health Department of the State of Minnesota. In a second step, Seccua had to prove that the integrated standard procedure of monitoring membrane integrity in its Virex Pro series water treatment system could ensure the complete removal of parasites even over the long term. These experiments took place on another installation in a Public Water Supply north of San Francisco/CA.

    In the letter of conditional acceptance now received, the Water Treatment Committee of the California Department of Public Health on Feb 08, 2013, confirmed that the Virex Pro, along with the installed SeccuMem Pro modules, are accepted as an Alternative Filtration Technology and do comply with California's Surface Water Treatment Rule and United States Federal Long Term Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rules 1 and 2.

    "The Water Treatment Committee (WTC) of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) hereby accepts the SeccuMem Pro 1000 membrane for Seccua Virex Pro 1000 Ultrafiltration Systems as an alternative filtration technology for compliance under the California Surface Water Treatment Rule (SWTR), Federal Long Term 1 and Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rules (LT1ESWTR, LT2ESWTR)."

    "North America, currently the world's largest market for decentralized drinking water treatment is extremely important for us. The successful approval for California is crucial for the further expansion of our business in the U.S. and Canada," Michael Hank, founder and CEO of Seccua GmbH, explained the Company's strategy. "The Certification for California along with our U.S. patent regarding the membrane integrity test, as well as our NSF 61 compliance of our solutions is a strong unique selling point, which will help us in our successful market development.", Owen Boyd, Chief Operating Officer and Partner of Seccua Americas, LLC adds to the explanation.

    Successful performance in the North American market Seccua could increase its sales in the U.S. by over five times in 2012 compared to the previous year - over 77 new plants could be implemented. In autumn 2012, Seccua opened an office close to Boston (Massachusetts), from where now Seccua is continuing to grow its US operations. In parallel, Seccua is building up outsourced warehouse operations in St. Clair / MI to support its customer's demand short handed.

    The approval in California now follows approvals and first installations in the States of Oregon, Washington, Virginia, Ohio, so Seccua now has a significant base of installations in place within the US.

    In addition, last year, the company received patent protection for the United States for its integrated membrane integrity test, a mandatory requirement under US regulation, if the systems are to be applied in Public Drinking Water Treatment for pathogen removal. This test checks the integrity of membrane filter automatically for damages large enough to potentially let bacteria and parasites pass the filter. If a membrane defect occurs that would be large enough that individual pathogens could pass, the system will be stopped automatically and the operator will be notified via mobile phone or alarm output to an existing control center.

    Innovative environmental technology: Seccua Ultrafiltration

    Seccua Ultrafiltration removes germs and particles without irradiation or the use of chemicals and disinfectants. In extensive field application, ultrafiltration technology has proven its reliability in the removal of pathogens: more than 99.99 percent of bacteria and parasites, as well as turbidity are removed from the water by the ultrafiltration process in a single step, leaving it in microbial perfect condition. Other water contamination, such as color or fluoride can be removed by Ultrafiltration in combination with efficient pre-treatment such as flocculation or precipitation.

    Furthermore dissolved organic matter in the water, such as pesticides or pharmaceuticals, can be effectively removed by combining ultrafiltration with other technologies offered by Seccua like activated carbon filtration. Please find further information at


    About Seccua

    Seccua is a worldwide leading developer and producer of compact and economical devices for complete removal of pathogens from drinking water. With its equipment for private, commercial and public applications, Seccua has received approvals in several US States as one of the first manufacturers of compact, integrated treatment devices. With the Seccua UrSpring systems, the company from Upper Bavaria/Germany provides highest quality of drinking water for home use.

    February 28, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- The Japanese scientist behind the hottest trend in fitness has agreed to become the face of a new exercise superbrand. Joining forces with global distribution company Universal Pictures International Entertainment (UPIE) and fitness programme producers, Big Shot Productions, Tabata™ is now a licensed exercise system based on Professor Izumi Tabata's research findings. Recognised as the father of HIIT - High Intensity Interval Training - Professor Tabata, figurehead of Tabata™, is renowned for his discovery that short sharp bursts of intense exercise are the best way to get fit fast and consume more calories.

    The official Tabata™ system will be launched in America and the UK initially as a group exercise class. It'll be based around the so-called 'Tabata™ Protocol' of 20 seconds of intense exercise followed by 10 seconds of rest. This system was developed by Prof Tabata when he was working as an advisor to the Japanese Olympic speed skating team. It is scientifically proven to be the most effective way to increase both aerobic and anaerobic fitness. In laboratory trials, this '20/10' system was shown to be significantly more effective than other commonly used forms of HIIT.

    Tests using the Tabata™ system increased VO2 max - the gold standard test for fitness - by 13% in 6 weeks. In contrast a trial using 30 seconds bursts of intensity, with 2 minute rest periods was not as effective even though the exercise was more intense and longer-lasting. Tabata™ classes will also be short and effective at 30 minutes with the most intense section being just four minutes long. Prof Tabata's latest research shows that if this method is followed correctly, using the authentic Tabata™ Protocol, the body will continue to consume more calories for up to 12 hours after the exercise class. These are additional calories to those consumed by the body at rest - so over and above the so-called RMB or Resting Metabolic Rate.

    Meanwhile, a spokesman for UPIE and Big Shot Productions said "We are thrilled that we have signed Professor Tabata to be the figurehead for this new fitness brand. This is an exercise system that works - and in double quick time, so we're sure it'll be a big hit with gym members- around the world. We also feel that gym operators will welcome a fitness system which has scientific credibility and a format which is flexible enough to be used for group personal training as well as group exercise classes."

    There are plans for a marketing campaign built around international celebrities and world class athletes who already use Tabata™ to get themselves in the best possible shape. Tabata™ will launch in the United States in March at the IHRSA Trade Show in Las Vegas, and then in the UK in April at Fitpro Convention 2013 Loughborough University (Stand 47), using the key marketing messages 'Tabata™ - Get Fit Fast', 'Tabata™ - Four Minute Fitness' and 'Tabata™ - The Science of Fitness'. Fitpro delegates can sign up for Tabata™ Presenter Sessions, which will also include a practical demonstration. Professor Tabata himself will visit London on March 14th for a Tabata™ Presentation Event to leading sports scientists and health journalists.

    Fishcat Farm captures the waste from their catfish production raceways and composts the fish manure with oat straw to make humus compost. A small amount of Mississippi river alluvial clay is added in order to bind the carbon into a form that remains in the soil as stable organic matter. The diverse microbial and nutrient content of Fishnure™ reduces the amount of product needed compared to regular compost.

    Charlotte, NC (MMD Newswire) March 4, 2013  -- Fishcat Farm produces catfish sustainably in an advanced automated raceway environment. The solid waste from the fish is captured and removed in order to maintain excellent quality of the water. Fishnure™ is a high quality humus compost made from the solid fish manure that has been captured from the raceways. The resulting humus compost is a soft putty-like substance. Only a small amount is needed making Fishnure™ economical to ship and use. For example, 1 pound will treat 60 sq. ft. of lawn.


    Humus compost is organic matter combined with clay, broken down by microbes then polymerized by microbes into humus. The clay provides the necessary structure for the polymers to form. The fish manure used in the process is the solid waste from a high protein diet excreted by fish in the raceways where the solid waste can be captured and removed quickly from the water before nutrients can leach from the waste. The clay used in the process is from the rich soil of the Mississippi Delta. In addition the clay comes from the bottom of discontinued catfish ponds that grew intensive populations of catfish for over 12 years. The organic wastes were not removed from the ponds and as a result beneficial nutrients accumulated in the clay in the bottom of the ponds. The carbon source used to create the proper carbon to nitrogen ratio for the compost is oat straw. The resulting Fishnure humus compost has no fishy smell and is more clay-like than that of regular compost. It consists of small moist colloidal putty-like modules that are soft and spongy. Only a small amount of these modules are needed per square yard of area. Fishnure™ has the smell of freshly tilled soil.

    Unlike regular compost the organic matter that is bound to the microscopic clay particles in humus compost will not decompose further and will remain in the soil and increase the total organic matter. Increased organic matter in the soil will increase fertility, water retention, water absorption, microbial life and all the other benefits of good fertile soil.

    Fishnure™ is an excellent product for providing nutrients for gardens, patio, lawn or vegetable plants. It is an economical alternative to regular composts that require much more product per sq. ft and to chemical products that damage the environment. Humus compost provides long lasting benefits to the soil rather than the short benefits from chemical fertilizers.

    March 5, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- Miami-based Houck Anderson, a renowned maritime and admiralty law firm, announced that it merged with The Chartwell Law Offices, LLP, one of the fastest growing law firms on the East Coast. The merger became effective March 1, 2013.

    Houck Anderson is rated AV-Preeminent by Martindale-Hubbell. The firm is also named a Best Law Firm in America in Maritime Law by US News and World Report. Founded in 1992, the firm has earned an outstanding reputation in maritime and admiralty law, and its principals, Mark Houck and Andy Anderson are sought-after speakers at maritime conferences worldwide. The firm, with offices in Miami and in Ft. Lauderdale, expanded its practice areas to include general liability, premises, construction, aviation and other defense litigation over recent years. Houck Anderson represents many of the leading insurers, P & I clubs, brokers and commercial interests, here and abroad, in matters ranging from Superyacht and pleasure craft liability to international shipping, hull and machinery claims and crew member litigation.

    The Chartwell Law Offices, LLP was founded by four lawyers in 2002 in Valley Forge, PA. Following rapid growth and the opening of offices in Pittsburgh, Scranton, Philadelphia and Harrisburg PA, Chartwell expanded into New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Florida. The firm now has 85 attorneys practicing principally in first and third party insurance coverage, casualty, employment and commercial litigation. With the addition of the Houck Anderson attorneys, Chartwell now has 13 lawyers in its Florida offices.

    "This is an important new chapter for Houck Anderson," said Mark Houck, founder of the firm, and now the Managing Partner of Chartwell's Florida operations and Maritime Practice. "We have worked hard to gain the respect of the maritime industry, and to be a leader in this arena. The timing of this merger is perfect as it gives us the opportunity to use Chartwell's positioning to expand our marine-based practices to the entire eastern seaboard, while Chartwell can increase its footprint in the important Florida market." Houck added that the two firms share important contacts in the London insurance market, as well as a culture of providing top-flight niche expertise. "This merger is a great fit," he noted.

    The merged firm will operate under the Chartwell name. Chris Troy, Chair of Chartwell's Insurance Practices & Property section, said, "An expanded Florida presence is important to our domestic, European and London clientele. We handle major property and catastrophe work around the world, and with the addition of the Houck Anderson attorneys, we are now better positioned to meet our clients' needs in Florida and throughout the Gulf Coast." Chartwell is currently representing various insurance markets in several dozen major claims stemming from Hurricane Sandy losses.

    Chartwell's practice areas have also expanded to handle toxic tort, creditor's rights and construction defect litigation. "We will continue to expand our firm, both geographically and by practice area, whenever we come across talented litigators who are also good people. The team at Houck Anderson certainly fits that bill," noted Chartwell CEO Cliff Goldstein.

    March 7, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- By Stipulation and Order of Settlement, Cybamar Swiss, GMBH, a Swiss transportation and freight company, its owner and CEO, Bassem Salhab, and Cybamar GMBH, it's German affiliate (collectively "Cybamar"), are deemed innocent of all claims of the United States Government ("Government") brought in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.

    A recently filed Stipulation and Order of Settlement was entered in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, dismissing the Government's case with prejudice against Cybamar by agreement. In that case, the Government had filed a money laundering and forfeiture suit against various parties, including Cybamar, seeking millions of dollars and alleging a Hezbollah-related money-laundering scheme. After an exhaustive investigation, the Government determined that it did not, in fact, have any claim against Cybamar, that Cybamar had done nothing wrong, that Cybamar does not support terrorism, nor does Cybamar engage in drug trafficking. The Stipulation requires that Cybamar surrender all of its rights to seek claims and sanctions against the Government. Cybamar was represented by James T. Bacon of Allred, Bacon, Halfhill & Young, PC, from Fairfax, Virginia.

    In the Stipulation and Settlement Agreement, the Government concedes that there is no prohibition or impediment preventing or discouraging any of Cybamar's business partners, contractors, banks, and/or credit or lending institutions from doing business with Cybamar. Cybamar's CEO, Bassem Salhab, stated, "I am pleased to see that the U.S. Government recognizes my innocence and the innocence of my companies, and I hope to be able to quickly restore our good name and good will."

    The Government's suit has had an extremely negative impact on Cybamar's impeccable reputation and goodwill, and Cybamar has been abandoned by all of its worldwide business partners for fear that they might be dragged into the suit. Cybamar now faces the formidable task of attempting to rebuild its destroyed business. "With the assistance of our business partners, many of whom I hope will come back to us, we intend to bring back to prominence Cybamar's once thriving business, which has been devastated by this lawsuit," promised Bassem Salhab.

    Ottawa, ON (MMD Newswire) February 13, 2013 -- EnergyUnited Electric Membership Corporation has chosen MeterSense, the meter data management (MDM) solution from Harris Utilities, to enhance operational efficiencies, analyze smart grid data and improve customer service.

    EnergyUnited is among the twenty largest electric cooperatives in the United States. Located in Statesville, North Carolina, it delivers electricity services across 122,000 meters to more than 100,000 members in 19 counties, with a mission to provide reliable electric services at a competitive price. To support this goal, EnergyUnited's management group constantly evaluates electrical distribution technologies to make business processes more efficient and member services more robust. In 2009, the group agreed that a smart grid solution was required to ensure EnergyUnited continued to deliver on its mission.

    The utility installed advanced metering infrastructure across its service territory later that year. Deployment was functionally complete by 2012, at which time EnergyUnited was faced with the challenge of managing and drawing value from the influx of smart grid data it collected. It understood that an MDM solution was essential to complete the deployment of its smart metering project, and chose MeterSense because of the software's configurable rules engine and native analytics functions.

    "We plan to use MeterSense to realize operational enhancements across our organization," said Kathleen Hart, Chief Information Officer and Vice President of Customer Care with EnergyUnited. "We will configure the rules engine to reduce the number of person hours we spend reading meters, validating reads and verifying tasks such as disconnects and demand resets."

    EnergyUnited is already an existing customer of Cayenta, Harris Utilities' customer information system (CIS) provider. MeterSense will integrate with Cayenta's CIS and EnergyUnited's enterprise outage management software to help confirm outages, notify members of service interruptions and restore power quicker than ever before.

    "Delivering reliable service is a core part of our mission," said Hart. "We live in a region of the country that is affected by hurricanes in the summer and freezing rain in the winter, both of which can cause power interruptions. And although we're one of the leaders in reliability among cooperatives across the country, we know we can always deliver better outage response to our customers. MeterSense will help us do that."

    EnergyUnited will fully implement MeterSense by the third quarter of 2013, at which time the utility will leverage MeterSense's analytics functions to realize further operational benefits. It plans to use aggregated data to study transformer loading and grid losses. It also expects that MeterSense will help reduce the volume of calls it receives from members regarding high bills and give its customer service representatives the data they need to address members' concerns swiftly and confidently.

    "EnergyUnited is a leader among electricity cooperatives in the United States," said Norm Daigle, Executive Vice President of Harris Utilities SmartWorks, the innovation engine of Harris Utilities that created MeterSense. "Its decision to implement MeterSense will help drive efficiencies across the organization, demonstrate the true value of the smart grid to its members and more broadly help the utility meet its mission of delivering affordable and reliable electric services."

    By transforming meter data into valuable business intelligence, MeterSense helps utilities like EnergyUnited realize its mission to provide comprehensive, reliable electric services to a large number of households and businesses at a low cost.
