Southern California MacFair 2004 Attendees Help Clean Up the Environment By Properly Disposing of Over Five Tons of Their Obsolete Electronic Equipment

Norwalk, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2004

Over 800 Macintosh enthusiasts descended on Cerritos College over three days this past weekend, November 12-14th for the Southern California MacFair 2004. It brought together 40 Mac related companies, 43 Mac seminars and 25 intensive Mac workshops. For the third year in a row, it was the largest Mac community get together in the southwest US.

In addition, this year the Southern California MacFair 2004 made arrangements to provide attendees free disposal of their old computer equipment including monitors, CPU, fax machines, printers, servers, phone systems and virtually any office electronics product. In two days, attendees disposed of over 11,280 pounds of electronic waste.

"We are thrilled that SoCal MacFair attendees properly disposed of over 5.5 tons of their obsolete electronics and that their old Macs didn't end up in landfills," said Keith Mueller, the show's organizer.

"I cleaned out my garage and disposed of 5 monitors, 6 computers, 6 printers, 2 faxes and a copier. I saved $ 150 in disposal costs at the SoCal MacFair," stated Lance Handy, an attendee at the event.

The hands on workshops were extremely popular and were taught by some of the world’s most respected instructors. "Beverly Houwing's Adobe Illustrator class was overwhelming. So much to digest and remember." stated Mark Bausman of Font & Center Graphic Design "This has to be one of the best hands on courses I have been to and that includes the ones I have attended at Macworld!"

The seminars at the SoCal MacFair were enthusiastically well-received "Our third year at the SoCal MacFair and its still the best Mac event in Southern California. Specifically enjoyed Gordon Bell and his Prosoft products which are life savers for Mac people" stated Charles Clark of Laguna Woods. Dr. Murray Massin also of Laguna Woods commented on the Marilyn Miller and the Mac Show "Don't miss it! You will enjoy an hour of fantastic clever entertainment using David Pogue lyrics."

Exhibitors and Seminar presenters were equally thrilled at the huge outpouring from the Mac Community.

"The SoCal MacFair 2004 was a success for Fastmac on all levels! Not only did we double our show sales expectations; we made contacts that will be repeat customers. The attendees were all very passionate about their Macs and were a pleasure to meet. Put us on next year's vendor list!" stated Michael Lowdermilk of Fastmac.

"Even though our software tool is geared more for a corporation or a software company the Southern California MacFair 2004 resulted in a number of good leads. We spoke to a lot of great people and felt it was time well spent for our company," said Redstone software VP of Sales, John Brennan.

"SoCal MacFair is a class act! The fair was professional and very well attended; an added plus was the quality of the facilities, staff, and attendees in my workshops. Truly an excellent event! I would definitely participate again!" commented Mike Descher, Apple consultant and workshop trainer.

California Middle School Helps Struggling Students Conquer Math with ALEKS Individualized Learning

Irvine, CA (PRWEB) September 03, 2013

Deborah Burton, a seventh and eighth-grade math teacher at Big Bear Middle School in Big Bear, Calif., considers the color-keyed pie chart in ALEKS as one of her favorite teaching tools. The interactive pie chart displays the results of a students current knowledge and each pie slice corresponds to a particular group of math topics, such as fractions or equations. The larger the area of a slice that is darker, the more mastery the student has of the topic area. Content mastery can be visually tracked by determining how much of each slice is dark.

Before class begins each day, Burton studies students pie charts to determine which topics her students are ready to learn. For the first 10 minutes of class, she calls groups of students to the whiteboard to work on problems before sending them to the computer lab for independent study. She then spends the remainder of the class working with students as they work individually on the topics they are ready to learn.

ALEKS accomplishes two big goals: filling in the gaps of students knowledge and teaching them the topics they are ready to learn right now, said Burton. Normally, I would have to take the whole class to the lab and spend time focused only on the students who need the most help. Or, I would teach the whole class the same topics, even though not everyone would be ready to learn it. ALEKS allows for extremely targeted teaching, which is just wonderful.

With its completely individualized approach to learning, ALEKS enables students to successfully master course material by targeting their learning on the material they are precisely ready to learn right now. Since ALEKS is web-based, and accessible directly via common Internet browsers, students can quickly access their accounts anytime, anywhere, via a tablet, laptop or traditional computer. All ALEKS courses feature user-friendly answer input tools that allow students to enter mathematical expressions and free-response answers that avoid multiple-choice and demonstrate true content mastery.

Before coming to the middle school, Burton taught math for 18 years at the high school, which is where she first used ALEKS. Already sold on the program, Burton became a highly vocal advocate for bringing ALEKS to the middle school. Her enthusiasm convinced Principal Tina Fulmer that the program would help the math department meet its goals for the school year, and Fulmer and Burton worked together to find grant money to help cover the costs.

Once Burton began to use ALEKS at the middle school three years ago, the impact was immediate: Students who had been learning at a basic level were now at levels of advanced learning. After using ALEKS for a year, Algebra Readiness eighth graders more than doubled the increase of California Standards Test (CST) score typically seen at the school. Moreover, 56 percent of these students scored at least Proficient, compared with the usual 40 percent. Scores on the CST increased an average of 30 points, and students who used to need constant attention no longer required Burtons help, as they were now motivated and successful working independently.

For Principal Fulmer, ALEKS has been well worth the investment. Whenever she visits classrooms, she has found students to be completely engaged with the work and empowered enough to work at their own pace. Even students who dont struggle with math have been eager to share the success theyve found with ALEKS.

I had a student come into my office to show me her math grade, which was at 133 percent. When I asked her what she was doing, she said Im addicted to the ALEKS program. Even though this student already had an A, she was excited to keep going and push herself as far as she could.

In another instance, Fulmer was contacted by a parent who was in tears because her daughter was failing math. She was able to use some additional funding to give the student access to ALEKS from home. Within one month, the student went from a failing grade to a C- and her mother was thrilled. Her daughter was so motivated by her quick progress that she spent every spare minute at home working on ALEKS.

The success Big Bear Middle School has experienced is nothing short of extraordinary and is a prime example of how ALEKS makes for a truly personalized learning experience, allowing each student to learn at his or her own pace," said R.G. Wilmot (Wil) Lampros, president of ALEKS Corporation. "As always, our primary goal at ALEKS is to give educators powerful tools that enable them to help students master the basics of math in order to prepare them for life beyond the classroom."

Riverside, CA (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

Home Security Store, Inc. has seen strong and steady growth over the past several years. So much so, that the company has purchased an even bigger warehouse and office space building in Southern California.

We need more room to grow. We were running out of room in our old warehouse, said Home Security Store Vice-President Ralph Winn, who has more than 37 years of experience in the security industry.

Winn says this is the second time in the past several years that the company has had to move in order to accommodate the business growth.

Home Security Stores new home is a 33,000-square-foot building located on the Riverside and Corona city line. Acquiring such a central location will allow the company to also engage with local installers in Riverside, Corona, and the surrounding Orange County area.

Great customer service and free top-notch tech support has been at the core of Home Security Stores plan for success since it opened its doors and this will continue as the company grows, adds Winn.

Today, in the home security field, there are so many competitors to choose from, which is a major hurdle in trying to get the attention of potential customers. Nevertheless, Home Security Store has optimized its online business since the mid-1990s, and still does today, by bringing customers the best of service with seasoned technical professionals and a product line which features the latest technology to help make your property safe and life easy, Winn said.

With that in mind, Winn adds that the company has long had the trust of DIY home and business owners nationwide and is expanding to a new market of local installers, as well.

The new location has landed us in an ideal and centralized area in Southern California. The new building will allow us the means to truly serve the wholesale market.

WESTEC 2013 Returns to California Amidst Promising Manufacturing Climate

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 31, 2013

WESTEC, the premier West Coast manufacturing event, returns to California amidst an encouraging environment that has seen a measurable increase in exports, production, overall employment growth, and recent legislation designed to enhanced the states manufacturing sector. While California has long been the nations leading industrial state, recent economic gains have been powered by new technologies, many of which will be on display at WESTEC at the Los Angeles Convention Center from October 15-17.

Produced by SME, WESTEC has built a reputation as the West Coasts leading technological showcase for the manufacturing industry for nearly 50 years. Generations of manufacturers have used the event as a forum to find cutting-edge equipment, explore advanced technologies, and learn innovative new production methods to help grow their businesses. Many of the industrys top equipment manufacturers unveil technological breakthroughs at WESTEC from software to cutting tools, 3D printers to multi-tasking machines.

According to the latest UCLA Anderson Forecast, California is one of the bright spots in the U.S. economic picture. For the 12 months ending April 2013, California had the second highest employment growth in the nation. The Forecast also reported that the economys strength was built within the technology and knowledge-laden sectors, which accounted for more than half the job growth in the state. California also showed strong growth of total direct exports of goods, which now account for 8.1 percent of GDP. Manufactured computers and electronics account for 30 percent of that total.

The manufacturing industry will also benefit from the implementation of recently passed legislation. Earlier this month, California signed into law a future sales tax exemption on manufacturing equipment. This brings the state in line with the 48 other states that exempt manufacturing equipment from sales and use tax. Recent anecdotal news has also been encouraging. Several manufacturers, such as Boeing, BYD and Ecologic Brands, all opened or announced increased manufacturing programs or facilities within the state.

We are greatly encouraged by recent developments in California, which has seen an uptick in manufacturing and production. said Christine Longroy, WESTEC event manager. The economic climate is one of the reasons why we decided to move WESTEC up from March 2014 to October 2013.

Introducing the Epicure Digital NutriSchool Menu and Nutritional Information System at CSNA 2012 California School Nutrition Conference

Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) November 05, 2012

Epicure Digital Systems, a leader in digital menu boards, presents at CSNA 2012 California School Nutrition Conference, the Epicure Digital NutriSchool Menu and Nutritional Information System for centrally controlling menu and nutritional information on school websites, classroom smart boards, and digital menu boards in the cafeteria and around campus, Introducing Epicure Digital NutriSchool menu and nutritional information system centrally controlling menu and nutritional information on school websites, on classroom smart boards, and on digital menu boards, to help school food services to transform school cafeterias into smarter lunchrooms

K-12 schools have just finished implementing the new revolutionary healthful menus and face these challenges:

Promote the new school menus
Students need to learn the benefits of good nutrition to help them make healthier menu choices on a daily basis and as a way for life.

Meet the new regulations
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Act of 2010, sections 204 and 209, requires schools to make information more readily available to students, parents and the public about the nutritional quality of meals.

Increase participation in the Breakfast and Lunch program
School food services need fuller participation to sustain profit margins in the face of increased food costs as a result of new and modified meal recipes.

With the new school meal standards beginning to be implemented and the growing importance of providing nutrition information to families and students, Epicure Digital NutriSchool is a logical way for K-12 schools to communicate to students and parents about nutrition information relating to their menus. This will help educate students and parents alike on the nutritional quality of their food choices, according to Kim Blum, MS, RD, LD, owner KB Nutrition Consulting in Dallas, TX and a former USDA employee, and it makes perfect sense to showcase the improvements via a simple system which can be displayed on cafeteria menu boards, online and in the classroom.

Increasing participation in breakfast and lunch programs is essential to retaining profitability. Less than half of low-income children receiving school lunches participate in the breakfast program and only about 30 million out of the total 50 million students in US public schools participate in the school lunch programs. Food services have potential to double the number of school meals served.

The NutriSchool system displays daily menus, nutritional data and labels, allergen alerts, and educational and promotional messages and graphics on classroom smart boards, on district and individual school websites, and on menu boards in the cafeteria, to inform, engage and encourage student participation.

In the classroom, teachers can use NutriSchool menus on smart boards to help students make healthier menu choices. At home, viewing NutriSchool menus on the school website, parents can guide their kids to make healthier menu choices. In the cafeteria, digital menu boards can educate on the front line, at the point-of-sale.

NutriSchool is an affordable system, explained Harvey Friedman, President and Founder, Epicure Digital Systems. Any size school district can easily and quickly provide daily online NutriSchool menus on their websites and existing classroom smart boards. And, the same system can also be used to control LCD menu boards in cafeterias if and when they are required.

For schools that already publish weekly and monthly menu information on their websites, NutriSchool provides the ability to display an additional webpage updated daily with nutritional and allergen information for each menu item.

NutriSchool utilizes a proprietary nutritional menu labeling system to easily select icons representing food groups, allergens, and nutritional data for each menu item.

NutriSchool can display district wide ES, MS and HS menus, or menu and nutritional information for each school with each schools local messaging and graphics.

NutriSchool can display different graphics and communicate different messages on the websites, smart boards and cafeteria digital menu boards, targeting students and parents with relevant and timely information for each platform.

NutriSchool can provide content in English and Spanish.

NutriSchool can read and display RSS feeds, campus alerts, live weather forecasts and current news and information from the Internet and can easily be set to display nutritional tips of the day and other school and district news and information.

NutriSchool can integrate with food service management and nutritional information systems.

Epicure Digital clients include K-12 schools, colleges and universities, hospitals, independent and chain restaurants, contract food service companies, business & industry, and cinemas and casinos among others.

The company's website ( has an extensive portfolio of its client's digital and online menu board projects.
