Newport Beach Handyman Installs LED Exterior Light Fixtures and Leviton Occupancy Sensor Infrared Wall Switch for Energy Savings


Orange County, CA (PRWEB) May 08, 2013

Conserving energy resources allows homeowners to enjoy cleaner air and a healthier environment. According to Energy Star, Americans saved more than $ 19 billion and avoided greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 29 million cars through choices they made with energy-saving measures in one year alone.

Weve definitely seen an increased interest in making homes more energy efficient, says Steve Bowman, owner of All in 1 Handyman. One easy way homeowners are going green and saving energy is by using energy efficient lighting products such as LED lighting. Substantial savings are possible whether building a new home, renovating an existing one, or simply updating features to improve a homes efficiency.

All In 1 Handyman is happy to help homeowners take the newest step forward in providing energy efficient lighting in homes: integrated LED light fixtures. For example, a homeowner in Mission Viejo had replaced his kitchen lighting with LED light bulbs and wanted to switch his outdoor lighting as well. All In 1 Handyman installed three new exterior light fixtures with LED light bulbs. LED lighting has become so reliable, efficient, and long lasting that for many applications, the concept of changing burned out light bulbs is becoming obsolete. In fact, LED light fixtures consume up to 85% less energy than standard lighting over the course of their long lives, while providing just as much brightness and versatility.

Another way to save energy and money with lighting is occupancy sensors. All In 1 Handyman was recently contacted by a homeowner in Irvine who needed home repairs and lighting installed. A lot of new construction here in Irvine comes with infrared wall switches that monitor a room for occupancy, but not every room has one, explains Steve. The device automatically turns lights on when a person enters a room and off when they leave. This saves energy, provides convenience, and lowers electric bills. I installed two Leviton occupancy sensor infrared wall switches in the pantry, where someone may leave the light on after snacking, and the laundry room where homeowners often have their arms full of laundry or forget to turn the light off.

The occupancy sensor is ideal for any room that would benefit from automatic hands-free light control, such as bathrooms, closets, laundry rooms, basements, pantries, and garages. The high tech switches have a secret spot on the front that adjusts the sensitivity of the infrared sensor and a setting to determine how long the light will stay on after a person leaves. In this case, the homeowner wanted the newly installed sensors set for five minutes for optimum energy savings. All In 1 Handyman was also able to readjust the sensors in the three bathrooms for five minutes as the client requested. Thanks to their help, the homeowner was able to complete all their home improvements just in time for the arrival of twins.

Cocoa Beach Adds Paid Parking to Downtown but No meters or Pay Stations: ParkNOW! Mobile Payment Only Option

Cocoa Beach, FL (PRWEB) August 03, 2012

Weekend visitors to Cocoa Beach will now be required to pay to park in about 200 non-metered spaces in the downtown. But dont look for any new equipment payment can only be completed with a cell-phone or computer, using high-tech ParkNOW!. Starting the weekend of August 4th, 2012, most of the formerly free on-street spaces in downtown will no longer be free to those without permits. Payment for weekend, hourly or daily parking will be required and can only be done using the ParkNOW! service. Although Cocoa Beach has had metered parking for many years, until now, there was substantial free public parking in the downtown. But thats changing. Parking in front of businesses on A1A and other parts of the downtown business district during busy weekends and holidays will only be free to those with permits. Everyone else can pay for parking only using ParkNOW! mobile Payment or they park at a meter.

For many years beachgoers have avoided paying to park at meters by grabbing the free parking spaces on A1A and elsewhere in downtown, just blocks off the beach. The result has been a loss of available parking for those who are planning to visit the local merchants, whether restaurants, bars, shops or service businesses. The City has taken a bold step of implementing the first US public parking scenario that does not offer any cash option or parking equipment. Instead, in its commitment to raise parking revenue and secure parking for downtown business customers, Cocoa beach has created a paid parking zone without any of the conventional hardware. This choice means that the new revenue comes at virtually no expense to the tax-paying citizens of Cocoa Beach for additional equipment, maintenance, installation or upkeep.

Permit-holders will be unaffected by these changes. But those without permits will have to use either the ParkNOW! mobile app or make a phone call to pay for parking. If they would prefer neither, they must park at a metered spot.

Meters and spaces that that allow payment through ParkNOW have decals and signage indicating that the service is available. For new customers of ParkNOW!, there are a few simple ways to use the service. iPhone and Android phone owners can get a free app at iTunes or Google Play -- or on-line at http://www.ParkNOW.US . With the app downloaded and a payment means (credit, debit card) securely provided, customers simply scan the QR codes on the meters or signs, or enter the space number printed on the curb, and indicate how long they would like to stay parked. The system automatically updates the parking enforcement officers handheld enforcement devices, so officers can see that the space has been paid.

Customers who have other types of cell phones can pre-register by going to the website, http://www.ParkNOW!.US and creating an account. Then, when calling the posted local area-code phone number, 321-328-8566, to start a parking session, the ParkNOW! system will automatically detect the cell phone being used, and the account it goes with, and the customer can simply respond to prompts by indicating the desired parking duration. The credit or debit card (or prepaid account for those who have a ParkNOW! account in other locations) will be charged for the amount of time requested, along with a small convenience fee of $ .30. Specific parking rates are posted, and range from $ 1.50 per hour to $ 10.00 per day. The $ .30 convenience fee is the same for every parking session and session extension.

For those who fail to pre-register, a simple call to the posted Help number allows immediate registration with a customer service agent. John Adair of the City of Cocoa Beach suggests using the smart-phone apps whenever possible. Using the app to scan the QR code makes it very simple for customers, and helps to avoid errors when paying to park. Plus, its faster than calling to park. The patent-pending scanning solution lets customers scan the QR code using the ParkNOW! app on Android or iPhone (and soon on Blackberry too). The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. (see images below).

We constantly thrive to give the customer the most convenient tools possible to take the pain away from parking. The QR code makes parking fast and simple. adds Krista Altok Tassa, President of Mobile NOW LLC.

Official Launch Press Conference

City personnel and ParkNOW! representatives will be on-site outside of City Hall on August 3rd at 1 PM to demonstrate the system and answer questions from the media.

Get Reminders, Add Time from The Beach Towel!

Along with giving customers a fast, non-cash payment option, ParkNOW! has several other features that make life easier for those visiting the beach or downtown. When setting up an account, customers can choose personal options including reminder text messages to alert them that time is about to run out and needs to be extended. Since parking can be extended by using the same method used to pay the first time, customers can remain on the beach (cell phone signals permitting), or in a restaurant or bar, instead of running back to the car to feed the meter. Currently, 30 parking meters accept ParkNOW! payment. The rest of the meters will be added to the program in the coming months. Only ParkNOW! can be used to pay at non-metered spaces. For permit-holders, parking is still free. For those who prefer to use coins or who dont have a cell phone, the meters still accept coins.

Because the meters are not digitally connected, they will not show the time paid when customers pay with ParkNOW! Enforcement officers are carrying state-of-the-art smart phone devices and will be able to see which cars are paid and which are not, even though the meter may still show Expired. Customers are reminded not to worry that the meter does not show the pay by phone time if the ParkNOW! transaction is confirmed by the system, whether by app or phone or web, the space is paid and the enforcement officer will know.

On-Line Account Management Gives Customer Full Information

Once registered, customers are provided an on-line account that they can access through the Internet or mobile Web. The account stores all information about parking sessions, charges made, parking extensions, reminder choices and more. It also can provide statements and account information for download and printing should a customer require printed receipts or evidence of payment if a citation is given by accident.

ParkNOW! Does Not Cost the City

During this first phase, ParkNOW! service is available in about 200 non-metered spaces and at 30 meters, but the service will be rolled out to all of Cocoa Beachs metered parking soon. The ParkNOW! service is provided to the City with no up-front investment and no maintenance costs. The only expense for the City is for credit card transaction fees required to process parking payments. Customers choosing to use the service pay a small convenience fee of $ .30 to park or extend their parking and $ .10 for reminder text messages (plus applicable text rates charged by cell phone plan provider). For those who pay meters by coin, there is no additional convenience fee. By adding the service, the City expects to increase available parking for local business customers, add parking revenue and reduce customer citations at meters. Customers who use the service can park for more time at once and add time remotely, thereby avoiding parking tickets for expired meters.

About Mobile NOW, LLC.

MobileNOW! is a world pioneer and leading provider of cell phone and other cashless payment methods for the parking industry in North America, operating on three continents under the service name ParkNOW! . In addition to enabling virtual payment and collection options, the ParkNOW! parking system offers full enforcement, management and reporting capabilit

Heres Your Summer Checklist: Beach, Bonfires and Pedophiles? ParentingTodaysKids.com Launches To Protect Our Families


Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 06, 2012

For most children, summer brings a long-awaited reprieve from the routines of school and work, idyllic beach days, friend-filled late nights and luxuriously lazy mornings. Summertime also brings pedophiles, cyberstalkers, and months of unrestricted access to your children. To help parents guard against such concerns this summer, SpectorSoft today announced its association with the launch of an innovative, new website resource http://www.parentingtodayskids.com -- designed to help parents and children alike better understand the challenges of living in todays digital world.

Kids have more free time in the summer months, which means they will be spending more time online and on their cellphones, said Lisa Shaw, Editor of ParentingTodaysKids.com and Senior Director of Child Online Safety at SpectorSoft, the leader in monitoring software and protecting kids online and on their smartphones. ParentingTodaysKids.com is here to help parents and kids stay safe this summer and hopefully every moment from this day forward.

Social networking activities like Facebook and Twitter have become playgrounds for our kids and many parents feel left out of what is happening there. Its easy to think of social networking as harmless or trivial, filled with insignificant content about what someone had for lunch or photos of a pet. Unfortunately, that is a naive perspective at best, and fatal at worst. Kids are being harassed, abused, threatened, and lured into dangerous situations every day, all from their computers and cellphones.

According to a Pew Research Center study, more than 30 percent of online teens have experienced harassment from a peer and i-Safe states that less than 58 percent of those being cyberbulled told an adult that it was happening. Harris Interactive notes 19% of teens surveyed said theyd been cyberbullied and 10% say theyve cyberbullied someone else.

In addition, the research team of Sameer Hindaju and Justin W. Patchin of the Cyberbullying Research Center suggest that youth who are victims of cyberbullying also experience stress or strain related to offline problems such as running away from home, cheating on a school test, skipping school, or using alcohol or marijuana. Sadly, their research also states studies and high-profile anecdotal cases have demonstrated a link between suicide and cyberbullying victimization.

While it might be hard for some parents to even imagine this level of onslaught and how their children would begin to navigate such an attack, the reality is that its happening and kids are reacting in many different ways. Do you know the signs? Shaw, a mother of five and a Harvard MBA, is an expert on the information parents need to arm themselves with to be the best parent possible in todays increasingly technological environment. Thats why she recently stepped out of her daily activities at SpectorSoft to help design ParentingTodaysKids.com.

We make sure our kids wear seat belts, take and pass driving lessons, learn about water safety and the dangers of drugs and alcohol. We monitor TV shows watched, books they read and friends they associate with, said Shaw. But we let them spend hours, weeks even years sending and reading messages that we never read from people we dont know about, about topics we have no idea about.

Are they sending photos of themselves that will compromise their futures forever? Who is befriending them online? To whom are they telling intimate details? Are they divulging where they live and what they do every day? Has anyone ever threatened them? Do strangers make them feel scared or nervous or uncomfortable or worse? At ParentingTodaysKids.com, we have a tangible solution that can help parents keep their kids safe today.

The launch of ParentingTodaysKids.com is being heralded as THE destination site for parents, teachers, extended family, and organizations concerned about the safety of our youth. At ParentingTodaysKids.com you can find up-to-the-minute news, help and solutions, from experts and other parents, for the issues that are plaguing children and families today.

Every parent is trying to create the safest environment possible for their kids, continued Shaw. But the reality is that the playing field has changed dramatically. We designed ParentingTodaysKids.com to help parents and families find immediate and real solutions. Parents can learn about what is actually happening, identify the warning signs and continue to keep their family safe. Its every parents job, privilege, and responsibility to make sure their kids are safe and sound each and every day.

City of Long Beach Tackles Stormwater Pollution to Protect the Public’s Health and Keep Its Beaches Open

City of Long Beach Tackles Stormwater Pollution to Protect the Public's Health and Keep Its Beaches Open










Long Beach, CA (PRWEB) July 24, 2006

The City of Long Beach, California announced today the success of a progressive stormwater management pilot program aimed at preventing harmful, illness-causing bacteria from contaminating city beaches and other recreational waters. The program uses a unique technology called the Smart Sponge, which kills bacteria such as E. coli, fecal coliform and enterococcus on contact and also removes other harmful substances like gasoline, oil & grease as well as sediment and debris. The Smart Sponge product is non-toxic, non-leaching, and is fully recyclable.

As part of the study, over 1,950 Smart Sponge filters were placed in targeted stormdrain catch basin inlets throughout the City of Long Beach beginning in August 2004. Continual testing has gone on since late 2004. In a recent testing of over ten sample locations throughout the City of Long Beach, the Smart Sponge® Plus filters successfully destroyed a very high percentage of bacteria, including E. coli and other fecal coliform, with an average destruction rate of over 79 percent and a maximum destruction rate of 97 percent.

Tom Leary, Stormwater Management Division Officer, Long Beach Public Works Department, said “Our number one priority is to protect the public’s health. With over 11 miles of public beaches and Colorado Lagoon, one of the few remaining inland recreational water bodies, the presence of bacteria and other harmful pathogens in our stormwater and urban runoff poses risks to human health, particularly after heavy rainfall. “I am pleased with the results of the pilot program in dramatically reducing bacteria in our stormdrains and thus allowing us to keep our beaches safe and open to the public. We hope to receive continued support from local and federal officials to sustain our efforts and expand the program,” stated Leary.

Glenn Rink, Founder & President of AbTech Industries, makers of the Smart Sponge technology stated, “We are very excited to report the continued success of our filtration technology and are thrilled with the results from the Long Beach program. Tests over the last year have demonstrated the ability of the Smart Sponge to continually and consistently remove bacteria, trash and debris with only routine maintenance as well as confirmed its effectiveness and longevity,” said Rink.

According to a recent published report in the Journal of Environmental Science and Technology, water pollution caused by high levels of bacteria, sickens as many as 1.5 million swimmers annually in the Southern California area beaches and causes millions of dollars in public healthcare costs. “This is a true testament to the City of Long Beach and Tom Leary for their aggressive and foresighted approach in keeping their beaches clean. “Long Beach is clearly setting the standard for municipalities interested in protecting their beaches as well as their community and we look forward to working with them to help maintain and expand its stormwater management program,” added Rink.

Over the next year, the City of Long Beach will continue its study to validate the project's success and carefully monitor the reductions in bacteria, hydrocarbons, trash and debris captured and/or destroyed by the Smart Sponge filters before going into the City's waterways or onto its beaches. AbTech Industries will also continue to work with the city to service, maintain, and help monitor the catch basins installed with Smart Sponge filters.

About AbTech Industries

AbTech Industries, Inc., based in Scottsdale, Arizona, provides communities and industries with customized solutions to control or remove bacteria that are threatening the quality of our nation’s waterways while at the same time removing trash and debris as well as petroleum products such as gasoline, oil & grease.

AbTech’s products incorporate a polymer-based filtration material, the Smart Sponge®, a technology that effectively removes pollutants from flowing or pooled water, encapsulating them so that they cannot be released back into the environment even under high pressure. In addition, AbTech is the first company to combine an antimicrobial agent in its filtration material and provide the first solution that effectively destroys bacteria at the street level.

The Environmental Protection Agency has included AbTech’s Ultra-Urban® Filter series with Smart Sponge technology as a Best Management Practice (BMP) under the federal environmental guidelines that apply to local and state governments.

American Artist, Ed Booth, To Exhibit At Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival

American Artist, Ed Booth, To Exhibit At Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival










Rancho Cucamonga, CA (PRWEB) November 17, 2005

American artist, Ed Booth, will exhibit at Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival, Winter Fantasy, at Booth 130.

“This will be my first time exhibiting at the Sawdust. I am really excited and looking forward to a great show,” states Booth.

The Sawdust Festival, Winter Fantasy, located at 935 Laguna Canyon Road, Laguna Beach, California, will be held over four weekends, November 19th-20th, 25th-27th, December 3rd-4th, and 10th-11th during the hours of 10am to 6 pm.

Ed Booth’s exhibit will feature limited editions of NFL greats Christian Okoye and Eric Dickerson. Limited editions are also signed by the athletes themselves.

The original oil painting of the Christian Okoye limited edition was sold recently during a celebrity auction at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.

Also included in the exhibit will be another original oil that was commissioned for the Christian Okoye Foundation Celebrity Golf Tournaments and used in promotional material.

During the Sawdust Festival Ed Booth will be demonstrating his painting styles using oils and mixed media.

Born in Austin, Texas in 1958, Ed Booth realized by high school that art was his passion. Although studying both fine and graphic arts did not lead to a career in the arts, the first several years after graduation helped him learn to "know myself - my limitations as well as my abilities." After a tour of military duty he enrolled in college to study landscape architecture and graphic design.

The California real estate bust in the early ‘90s focused his efforts in graphic arts and he established a successful graphic design firm. However, fine art remained his first love and whenever possible he steps away from his computers and to his easel.

Acknowledged by his peers as a master of the use of color and a self-avowed student of composition, Ed brings to his images a sense of life and vibrancy not often found in contemporary works. Depending on his subject matter, Ed will paint in either a soft impressionistic style or if the subject dictates, a bold style bordering on abstract expressionism.

He readily admits to being influenced by Vincent Van Gogh, Paul Gaugin and Robert Clunie as well as contemporary masters LeRoy Nieman, Richard Coons and Howard Behrens. He has equal facility with both brush and knife and is very adept at using a limited palette.

A keen sense of how man interacts with nature, and of how nature often has the upper hand in those interactions, is one of the hallmarks of Booth's work. Another hallmark is his candid portraiture of people at work or play.

He also has a deep and abiding love of nature. Influenced by Clunie and Coons, he is starting to explore the Eastern Sierra Nevada, John Muir's "Range of Light" and will soon be displaying images based on Sierra landscapes.

Ed currently resides in the apple growing community of Oak Glen, CA, in the southern end of the San Bernardino Mountains. The peaceful community is perfect for artistic pursuits.

For information on any of Booth's images, or to commission an original image, please visit him at http://www.edboothart.com email at ed@edboothart.com or call 909-790-6781.

Powell, who broke Bob Beamon’s long standing record while beating Carl Lewis with a leap of 29’4.5 inches in 1991, was recently inducted into the Track and Field Hall of Fame.
