Mojo Music Supply Announces Third Annual Southeastern Guitar and Amp Show

Burgaw, NC (PRWEB) August 24, 2012

Mojo Musical Supply, a renowned manufacturer of guitar amplifier cabinets and an amplifier parts supplier in Burgaw, N.C., has announced that it will be hosting the Southeastern Guitar and Amp Show (SEGAS) for the third year in a row. This event brings guitar, amp and effects pedal builders and enthusiasts from across the country and gives attendees the opportunity to show their wares and try new products from some of the best manufacturers in the industry. The show takes place September 22-23 at the Raleigh Convention Center in Raleigh, N.C., and general admission is free.

After having attended guitar and amp trade shows across the country for many years, the team at Mojo Musical Supply decided to put on their own. The company often found other shows lacking in one area or another and, after much preparation and planning, debuted the first annual SEGAS to address those shortcomings. In the years since, the show has become a major industry show attracting both musicians and manufacturers from across the country and around the world.

Taking its original ideas for the perfect trade show even further, 2012's SEGAS will feature an amp lounge, where guitarists can try out the latest amplifiers first hand all weekend long. In addition, guests will be able to attend the many lessons and clinics offered during the show. Additionally, guests are invited to enjoy a performance by Joel Kosche, guitarist from the band Collective Soul, and special guest Damona Waits.

Change the World . . . with Your Computer Southeastern Council of Foundations Joins World Community Grid™

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 26, 2005

Millions of personal computers sit idly on desks and in homes worldwide. During this idle time, the mysteries of science and space continue to elude us. What if each of the worlds’ estimated 650 million PCs could be linked to focus on humanity’s most pressing issues?

To make this vision a reality, the Southeastern Council of Foundations has become a partner of World Community Grid™, joining the IBM Corporation and a group of leading foundations, public organizations and academic institutions. World Community Grid establishes a permanent, flexible infrastructure that provides researchers with a readily available pool of computational power that can be used to solve problems plaguing humanity. Importantly, World Community Grid is easy and safe to use.

To join, members, business associates, family and friends should go to and simply download and install a free, small software program on their computers. When idle, your computers request data from World Community Grid’s server. Computers then perform computations using this data, send the results back to the server and prompt it for a new piece of work.

World Community Grid provides an efficient and effective way to make a difference on problems that plague humanity. We are asking our members, business associates, family and friends to join World Community Grid as part of our overall efforts to enrich the lives of Southeastern Council of Foundations members and our communities. In addition, we would like for everyone to become a member of the Southeastern Council of Foundation's team.

World Community Grid will address global humanitarian issues, such as:

•    New and existing infectious disease research: Researching cures for HIV and AIDS, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), malaria and others.

•    Genomic and disease research: The Human Proteome Folding project—World Community Grid’s first project—seeks to help identify the functions of the proteins that are coded by human genes.

•    Natural disasters and hunger: World Community Grid applications can help researchers and scientists with earthquake predictions, improving crop yields and evaluating the supply of critical natural resources like water.

What is grid technology?

Grid technology joins together many individual computers, creating a large system with massive computational power that exceeds the power of a few supercomputers. This capability can be applied, on a global scale, to very large and complex problems for the benefit of humanity.

The benefits are proven. In 2003, the IBM Corporation was one of the sponsors of a smallpox study that took advantage of grid computing. This study, using today’s largest available super computers, would have taken years to complete. With grid computing, this study was completed in less than six months and identified 45 potential smallpox-treatment candidates.

IBM’s world class and open eServer and Storage products, built with IBM’s innovative and open Middleware products like WebSphere, DB2 and managed by Tivoli, serves as the technology behind grid computing. United Devices, the market leader in highly secure grid solutions for businesses of all sizes, developed the special software application that enables World Community Grid to operate.

Southeastern Council of Foundations, Rochester Institute of Technology, Information Technology Association of Canada and other leaders in the world community are partnering with World Community Grid to help solve problems that are plaguing humanity.

Join the Southeastern Council of Foundations World Community Grid Team today! Please contact Helen M. Ishii, Communications Manager, in the SECF office with any questions concerning this project.
