iService Scripting Language Gets Upgrade


Champaign, IL (PRWEB) September 30, 2012

One-to-One Service.com announced today that the iService Scripting Language (ISL), an integral part of the iService Customer Interaction Solution, has been enhanced with a number of new commands that support more advanced forms and workflow development. The enhancements allow web developers to use a variety of programming techniques, such as incorporating other iService forms into a current form using an INCLUDE command.

"One of the unique aspects of iService is the ability to separate the business logic from the user presentation," said Scott Whitsitt, Founder and CEO of One-to-One Service.com. "For example, a business analyst can easily prepare a form that captures user input and generates various notifications across the enterprise. A graphic designer can then modify the interface for corporate branding. These new enhancements take this a step further by providing various capabilities that appeal to web developers that have experience with other languages such as PHP or ASP.net. Organizations that want to develop a more complete enterprise type of workflow now have a very robust set of tools with iService and its integrated scripting and forms environment."

About One-to-One Service.com

One-to-One Service.com is a leading provider of online customer service and marketing software (iService) that is easy to implement and even easier to use. iService routes and manages customer inquiries, captures a complete history of every customer interaction, provides a powerful self-help web site, and includes integrated email marketing capabilities (iCentives

Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 25, 2012

Today online coupon website CouponBuzz.com announced that the first Cyber Monday deals were starting to activate in their new section dedicated to hosting the best Cyber Monday coupons from across the web. The section compiles the coupons from each of the merchants they are affiliated with that revolve around Cyber Monday. Each coupon is displayed, and a short description included of how to utilize it. Exceptions, if any, are also detailed. The user is then provided with a one-click feature which copies the coupon code to their clipboard, and then simultaneously transfers them to the external merchant webpage so they can add the item to their shopping cart.

At CouponBuzz.com we are always challenging ourselves to develop new tools to improve our site visitors experience, explained Justin Bowen, founder of CouponBuzz.com. One of the most common complaints from online shoppers who search for coupons and coupon codes is that it takes far to long to locate them.

By creating dedicated merchant pages for our top-selling merchants, and special sections like our Cyber Monday section, we make finding a great Cyber Monday coupon code or deal a matter of minutes.

CouponBuzz.com also offers a unique twist to differentiate themselves from other online coupon aggregating websites.

This ensures that each coupon users will see on the site is a valid coupon, and that the very best ones are very easy to locate.

Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator Receives $250,000 Challenge Grant From The Broad Foundation


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 30, 2012

The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) has received a $ 250,000 challenge grant from The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation to help advance the Citys leadership in creating up to 1,600 green jobs in the next five years, fostering economic development, and advancing environmental stewardship in the clean technology sector. The grant is the first private funding that provides the cornerstone to LACI's $ 1 million bridge to sustainability fundraising campaign that will help support operations through the opening of the La Kretz Innovation Campus, a 60,000-square-foot advanced clean technology center soon to break ground in Los Angeles Downtown Arts District.

The Broad Foundation's support comes on the heels of widespread city support for LACI, a key regional initiative that helps promising green startups succeed and create new jobs. As a private non-profit born from Mayor Antonio Villaraigosas vision of a world-class clean technology ecosystem in Los Angeles, LACI received seed operational funding from the Community Redevelopment Agency of Los Angeles (CRA/LA). In addition, LACI has partnered with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), which has taken the lead on securing more than $ 30 million in federal, state, local and private capital to fund the acquisition and build the La Kretz Innovation Campus.

While the Campus is funded, the state-mandated dissolution of the CRA/LA has left a temporary operational funding gap for LACI that the Los Angeles business and philanthropic communities are being asked to fill. Weve achieved a lot in a short time, and were so very close to funding programs that will continue to create jobs and a better, cleaner Los Angeles for generations to come, said Fred Walti, executive director of LACI. Our goal now is to raise the necessary operating funds to sustain and scale our organization until we are profitable. We are grateful to The Broad Foundation for its challenge grant, as it provides us with crucial support, validation and momentum as we move forward.

With our challenge grant, we hope to encourage other private and corporate philanthropists to support LACI as an investment in our local economy, said Eli Broad, co-founder of The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation. LACI is like the baseball farm team system, identifying and funding promising clean technology startups that will hopefully grow into a clean tech corridor in our city.

"We are enormously grateful to The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation for their generous support of the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator," said Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. "The incubator will play a key role creating jobs, building a stronger regional cleantech industry cluster, and revitalizing the Arts District in Downtown Los Angeles."

LACI works closely with the Mayors Office to identify, attract, and accelerate the growth of businesses with clean technologies that will support the City in meeting its environmental, renewable energy, energy efficiency and related goals. In addition, LACI holds a close strategic relationship with the LADWP, acting as a scout in the region to identify and accelerate technology that supports their pursuit of innovative clean technologies for water conservation and renewable power.

In its first year operating in a temporary facility in LAs Downtown Arts District, LACI has helped nine high-quality cleantech companies grow their green businesses, create jobs and build sustainable products that are Made in LA. LACI has recruited a team of more than 40 expert mentors and advisors to help these businesses and offers educational, coaching, and outreach programs. LACI has also generated significant national awareness by hosting roundtable discussions about regional clean technology initiatives with the likes of US Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson, US Department of Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, and Chair of the White House Council on Environmental Quality Nancy Sutley.

Once the permanent La Kretz Innovation Campus opens next year, LACI is expected to sustainably accelerate the growth of dozens more promising companies and entrepreneurs in world-class facilities that include wet labs, dry labs, prototype manufacturing space, conference space, and strategically aligned partners all in one convenient location. It is anticipated that, over the next five years, LACI can help create over 1,600 direct and indirect jobs.

About LACI

The Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI) is a private nonprofit founded by the City of Los Angeles to accelerate the commercialization of clean technologies in the Los Angeles region. Located in the center of the Citys Cleantech Corridor, LACI offers flexible office space, CEO coaching and mentoring, and access to a robust network of experts and capital.

Album on the Relationship of God (Satguru) and Devotee (Sikh) as Father and Child Released


Chandigarh, Punjab (PRWEB) May 23, 2009

Brig. Partap Singh Ji Jaspal (Retd.) has released a new video titled "Hum Barik Tum Pita Hamare, Tum Mukh Devo Kheera". God is loved by His devotees in many different ways. This video covers the Love between God (Satguru) and His devotee (Sikh) as Father and child. This unique video cites many references to this relationship from the Gurbani of Sri Guru Arjan Dev Ji and Sri Guru Ram Das Ji as enshrined in Living Sikh Guru, Sri Guru Granth Sahib, and explains them in an easy to understand manner. The title of the video is taken from Sri Guru Granth Sahib (884) and translated it means - "I am Thine child and Thou art my Father. Thou puttest milk into my mouth".

Brig. Partap Singh Ji writes about God's love for His children in the chapter "Martyrdom" from "Eternal Glory of Sri Guru Tegh Bahadur Sahib" - "A worldly mother takes upon herself all the sufferings and inconveniences to make her children comfortable. God is loved as father and mother and is addressed in many holy hymns as such. All beings are His children. The Ninth Guru Nanak, a true manifestation of God, demonstrates the divine climax of God's love for His children. For God there is no discrimination between His children on the basis of faith, belief or religion. With equity, the Great Guru accepts all of them and saves them. He had incarnated for the sake of love for the children of God. And He alleviates these sufferings and redeems them with such a grandiose and exemplary excellence."

As with the all the videos of the mission, it may be watched and downloaded for free from the mission's websites - http://www.SikhVideos.org and http://www.SriGuruGranthSahib.org.
