IAOVC highlights facts about the Italian American experience in America with “bite-sized” video feature on events in US history starting with Memorial Day.

Italian Americans have contributed so much to this country throughout history, it is great to be able to celebrate these facts with these videos”

— Andre DiMino

BLOOMFIELD, NEW JERSEY, USA, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition (“ONE VOICE”), America’s largest independent Italian American anti-bias organization, has launched a new initiative to bring interesting facts about the Italian American experience in America with a concise, interesting and fact-filled video. Dubbed “The ONE VOICE Minute” the debut edition released today concerns Memorial Day.

Memorial Day is a day when we pause and remember all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom in the USA. Many may not realize that the history of Italian Americans giving their all for this country goes all the way back to the Revolutionary War, where Italians, soon to become Italian Americans, fought side-by-side with our nation’s first heroes. This and other facts about the Italian American connection to Memorial Day are featured in this first edition of The ONE VOICE Minute.

“This is a great way for us to feature important facts and information about Italian Americans that may not be widely known,” stated Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of IAOVC. “I am very pleased that we are launching The ONE VOICE Minute series and I hope many people will watch and learn something from these videos, starting with Memorial Day.”

The videos, written and produced by Frank Cipolla, are hosted by Andre’ DiMino, Executive Board Member of IAOVC, who has regularly appeared on TV and radio interviews representing ONE VOICE in its efforts at fighting stereotyping and denigration of Italian Americans, most recently in opposing the elimination of Columbus Day.

“Italian Americans have contributed so much to this country throughout history, it is great to be able to celebrate these facts with these videos,” stated DiMino.

The ONE VOICE Minute is at YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULlOcQHy9Kw

ONE VOICE is different from all other Italian American groups in that its sole focus and objective is to educate and fight bias, stereotyping and discrimination against Italian Americans.

ONE VOICE issues a regular email newsletter, “The Alfano Digest,” to more than 5,000 individuals and Italian American organizations nationwide. Written and compiled by Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of ONE VOICE, the Digest issues alerts on instances of bias, stereotyping, discrimination and defamation and activates the ONE VOICE nationwide network of “Defenders” who respond through calls, emails, faxes, letters and demonstrations where necessary. The Digest also contains informative Italian American cultural and heritage information. To receive the Digest, email Dr. Alfano – mannyalfano@comcast.net.

Paycent Now Available At Amazon. The World’s First (and only) Virtual Crypto Card.

Paycent Cards

Paycent Cards

Paycent Phone App

Paycent Hybird App

The World’s First (and only) Virtual Crypto Card available via their app by Michael Kryton, Equityir contributing writer

Sure, Amazon may be focused on blockchain, but when they see a number of users, like Paycent cardholders, active in the world, Amazon may decide to activate some of those URLs they have.”

— Alex Agarwaal

EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — There are over 49,000 Paycent Cards (PYN) (www.PayCent.com) in distribution at this writing. Paycent, a division of Texcent, a Singapore-based company with offices in the Philippines and U.A.E, has made the first global Crypto Virtual Card available via their app, which you can get at the App store and Google Play.

The card is virtual and also available as a plastic card for a nominal amount. It can be used online to book airline tickets and hotels, and can also be used to shop at Amazon. Now that Amazon has fully jumped into the blockchain universe, Paycent’s timing is interesting.

Even though Amazon has decided to leverage blockchain versus bitcoin, one cannot help but notice the domain names Amazon has secured. In an article on CoinTelegraph.com, “In November 2017, the e-commerce giant was reported purchasing a number of crypto-related domain names including ‘amazoncryptocurrencies.com,’ ‘amazoncryptocurrency.com,’ and ‘amazonethereum.com.’ It was also noted at the time that ‘amazonbitcoin.com’ redirects to the original Amazon URL”

Alex Agarwaal, Texcent’s Director of Card Programs and Partnerships, said, “It’s the nature of economics and commerce. Everyone is trying to figure out where the best starting point is. What we [Paycent} are doing is turning heads, because not only did we pick a very strong starting point, we established market share and have stimulated continuing response. Sure, Amazon may be focused on blockchain, but when they see a number of users, like Paycent cardholders, active in the world, Amazon may decide to activate some of those URLs they have. And, of course, that will only enhance our position.”

To get the Paycent card, users go through a KYC approval. If you’re not familiar with KYC, It stands for ‘Know Your Client’, and it guarantees that banks have documentary evidence of the identity of all their clients. Learn about that here: KYC (Know Your Customer)

KYC’s process involves identifying and verifying the identity of clients in order to facilitate compliance with Anti-Money Laundering laws (AML) and to protect from accidentally facilitating criminal activities.In other words —- security. Requirements for verification documents will vary depending on a user’s account Level. The additional data collected is not shared with unrelated third parties.

Once a user gets KYC approval, they can start using the Paycent Card without waiting for the plastic one to arrive by courier. No one offers all this except Paycent and the growing interest and engagement in Paycent’s card supports the idea that the cashless society is eager to cash in (as it were).

Paycent Cards enable users to convert digital assets into local currencies for use or withdraw from automated teller machines (ATMs) with real time accessibility and convenience, while adhering to the highest level of security standards in the industry.

The App lists those and other features:

– Send and receive or request digital assets with ease;
– Buy and sell precious metals or have it delivered directly to you;
– Load up an account easily through Credit/Debit Cards, Unionpay, Alipay and WeChat Pay;
– Cash out Paycent credits when needed through your Paycent Card;
– Convert digital assets to fiat with real-time accessibility;
– Conveniently access funds and pay for goods and services globally.

With speedy transactions and low transaction fees, the Paycent Card seems to have positioned itself well, evidenced by the high rate of early adopters. Paycent is also attracting merchants with their Paycent Merchant Program.

[Paycent is attracting merchants with their Paycent Merchant Program.]

Like any sector, influence and leadership triggers interest, acceptance and engagement. Paycent shareholders like what they see — a company that has put a tangible instrument into the market place and something that now has tens of thousands spending and selling —– virtually.

KKM becoming a Fund Strategist Portfolio (“FSP”) offering adds to the existing line-up of ETF model portfolios that KKM currently offers on Envestnet.

By combining a risk-based approach to portfolio construction with a technical undercurrent, the investment expertise of KKM & Nasdaq Dorsey Wright presents advisors a distinct model portfolio solution”

— Jeff Kilburg, Founder & CEO of KKM Financial

CHICAGO, IL, USA, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — KKM Financial (“KKM”), provider of quantitative ETF model portfolios, has on-boarded four risk-based ETF model portfolio strategies on Envestnet’s Fund Strategist Network platform. KKM becoming a Fund Strategist Portfolio (“FSPs”) offering on the Envestnet platform adds to the existing line-up of ETF model portfolios powered by Nasdaq Dorsey Wright that KKM currently offers on the SMA platform of Envestnet. For those advisors seeking practice management efficiencies or for those looking to outsource asset allocation and manager research, monitor underlying investments and rebalance multiple accounts, FSPs can provide an effective solution—which is why they have quickly become an integral component of many financial advisory practices.

KKM’s turn-key ETF model portfolios were created by the KKM Investment Committee utilizing distinct ETF model portfolio sleeves powered by Nasdaq Dorsey Wright. In creating the model portfolio solutions, the KKM Investment Committee followed a risk-based objective process, which included incorporating open-architecture (multiple ETF issuers) and research-based proprietary strategies. ETF model portfolio solutions can help advisers simplify and scale their practices, provide cost-effective portfolios to clients, and potentially strengthen the overall investment process of their firms. KKM’s four risk-based model portfolios seek to assist advisers in obtaining internal objectives alongside with their clients’ goals in focus. Utilizing components of Nasdaq Dorsey Wright’s Relative Strength models, these investible risk-based ETF model portfolios available are: KKM Conservative, KKM Moderate, KKM Growth, KKM Aggressive Growth. KKM’s risk-based ETF model portfolios powered by Nasdaq Dorsey Wright are designed to assist advisers in matching clients risk tolerance to their long-term suitability.

"We are pleased to further deepen our relationship with Envestnet by offering their network advisors these risk-based ETF model portfolio solutions powered by Nasdaq Dorsey Wright” said Jeff Kilburg, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of KKM Financial. “By combining a risk-based approach to portfolio construction with a systematic and technical undercurrent, we are leveraging the investment expertise of both KKM & Nasdaq Dorsey Wright to present network advisors a distinct turn-key ETF model portfolio solution."

Additional ETF model portfolio solutions powered by Nasdaq Dorsey Wright offered by KKM on Envestnet: Sector Rotation Model, Tactical Rotation Model, International Rotation Model, and the Fixed Income Model. By incorporating Relative Strength methodology, the purpose of these ETF model portfolios is to identify major themes in the market, have exposure to those funds controlled by demand and eliminate exposure to those funds controlled by supply. The Models are designed to hone in on the strongest ETFs from their respective inventory lists and will attempt to capture the strongest trends and avoid the weakest trends. The ETF model portfolios powered by Nasdaq Dorsey Wright inventory of funds provide a diversity of investments that is generally advantageous to trend-based strategies.

Relative Strength Methodology: The most adaptive tool we have found to identify the strongest trends from the weakest within an investable universe is Point & Figure Relative Strength. The Relative Strength calculation is designed to target long term themes of outperformance, while also remaining responsive enough to allow for rotation when market trends necessitate. In short, Relative Strength attempts to minimize exposure to underperforming positions, while letting profitable positions run. Most importantly, this systematic and rules-based approach eliminates the subjective or “emotional” trades, as the calculation is derived from price data alone.

What is a FSP?
Fund Strategist Portfolios (“FSPs”) can provide advisors access to investment strategists who construct distinct portfolio solutions to help meet the ever increasing demands of today’s investors. They typically comprise a set of mutual funds and/or exchange-traded funds (ETFs). FSP solutions espouse various approaches to portfolio construction and asset allocation: whereas most FSP portfolios employ a long-term, strategic asset allocation approach, others take a dynamic or tactical approach and actively shift allocations in order to take advantage of short-term market movements.

HMS Software and ARES PRISM Announce Strategic Alliance

HMS Software and ARES PRISM will work together to combine the TimeControl enterprise timesheet with ARES PRISM enterprise cost management.

We are excited to help integrate TimeControl’s timesheet functionality into our array of project controls solutions.”

— Simon Medley

MONTREAL, QUEBEC, CANADA, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — HMS Software, a leading provider of project management and enterprise timesheet solutions, has announced a new strategic alliance with ARES PRISM, a provider of integrated project cost management software solutions. The partnership will allow the two firms to collaborate with an integrated cost management / timesheet solution for their respective clients.

“This alliance is a market differentiator,” explains Chris Vandersluis, President of HMS Software. “ARES PRISM is known world-wide for its enterprise cost management solutions. TimeControl is known around the world for its enterprise timesheet solutions. The combination of these two levels of functionality is ground-breaking.”
ARES PRISM systems manage the complete project lifecycle including cost and schedule, change management, project estimating, earned value, contracts & procurement, and field progressing.

HMS Software’s TimeControl provides a multi-purpose timesheet targeted at mid and large sized organizations. TimeControl Industrial adds crew timesheet entry and materials consumption and equipment usage to the system to create a field data collection system.

TimeControl’s excellence is in managing actuals which, when combined with ARES PRISM’s excellence in managing project plans and estimates makes a powerful combination.

“We are excited to help integrate TimeControl’s timesheet functionality into our array of project controls solutions,” says Simon Medley, the Manager of Canadian Operations at ARES PRISM. “This will allow us to broaden our offering to existing and prospective ARES PRISM clients as well as share ARES PRISM with existing and prospective TimeControl clients.”

As part of the strategic alliance, HMS will share its expertise in enterprise timesheet systems, industrial field data collection systems and its published timesheet software TimeControl with ARES PRISM account management and technical personnel. ARES PRISM will share its knowledge in Cost Control and Change Management systems and the ARES PRISM system with HMS Software's personnel. The companies have already begun joint training sessions of their staff.

The teams of both firms have already begun work on the technical integration of both products which is expected to be completed in the coming weeks. The integration will be bi-directional and under the control of the cost control managers who will now be able to load actuals from TimeControl at the click of a button.

“We can already see so many points of connection,” says Stephen Eyton-Jones, Director of Technical Services at HMS. “We have numerous clients in common, we target many of the same business challenges and we are both known in similar large-scale industries. It’s gratifying when we talk about earned value or DCAA compliance, our counterparts at ARES PRISM already known what we are talking about.”

TimeControl is designed as a multi-purpose timesheet which has helped it become one of the world's most popular timesheet systems. It can deliver time and attendance, time and billing, job costing and project time within the same interface, eliminating the need for multiple timesheet systems within the same organization. TimeControl is often used both for good governance within the organization as well as for government compliance such as R&D tax credit tracking, DCAA compliance, ARRA tracking as well as HR, Payroll, project management and more.

The HMS Software and ARES PRISM alliance broadens the reach of both firms. HMS is now a part of the extensive network of alliances of ARES PRISM and ARES PRISM is now a part of HMS Software's extensive partner list.

Twenty-eight Flag Display Events Will Fly 17,337 U.S. Flags this Memorial Day to Honor Our Veterans

Join with Colonial Flag Foundation in Honoring Our Veterans this Memorial Day

Benefiting Charity - Operation Ramp It Up for Veterans - via the VA Foundation

Hosted by: The Arlington Memorial Gardens

Benefiting Charity - Project Healing Water Fly Fishing & Pets for Vets

Hosted by: The City Of Eagle Idaho

Benefiting Charity - Building Veterans

Hosted by: Knights of Columbus

Benefiting Charity -Archdiocese for Military Services, USA

Hosted by: St Patrick School

Not just a day for "Gigantic Mattress Sales," but a day to revive the meaning of Memorial Day with the display of 17,337 U.S. Flags in 28 U.S. cities & town.

It is foolish and wrong to morn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived.”

— General George S. Patton

UNITED STATES, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Colonial Flag Foundation Memorial Day Flag Displays

Visitors to Field of Honor® and Healing Field® flag displays experience a breathtaking view as numerous flags flutter in the wind. First-timers often find this affects them more than they expected. At the Colonial Flag Foundation headquarters, we hear repeated comments such as, “I thought it would be beautiful, but I had no idea how amazing the experience would be.”

Having visited many of our flag displays, we understand. Our problem, however, is that we are unable to visit all these amazing events. This Memorial Day, for example, 17,337 United States Flags will fly in 28 Field of Honor® and Healing Field® displays located in 13 states. Like proud parents of large families, we love each of our offspring and imagine that some may become tired of our constant bragging.
Nevertheless, we have a lot to brag about, and it is all true. As a matter of fact 20 of the 28 hosting organizations are bringing return events to their communities. As we talk with them we learn of their amazing accomplishments. Six have hosted events for more than ten years. These repeating events have also inspired 8 first-time displays to join with them.

This all recounts the impact that the flag displays have in drawing the community together to honor heroes who have earned respect and appreciation. We often note on event web pages that each flag tells a story, and we have learned the impact that the displayed flags have for families and sponsors.

There is, however, another benefit resulting from Field of Honor® and Healing Field® flag display events. The 28 events posting flags this Memorial Day will through their event raise money for 30 causes. The number 30 is important as it means that each of the 28 hosting organizations selected their own benefiting charity, and two events named two charities. It follows, then, that the proceeds from these events remain in the local communities to benefit local causes. Service clubs have programs that benefit numerous local programs. Other named charities benefit veterans, police, fire fighters and support numerous local causes. Last year alone, Colonial Flag Foundation events raised over a million dollars for charity.

We will visit as many flag display events as possible, but we can’t make it to all. Nevertheless, we encourage those who can visit a Field of Honor® or Healing Field® flag display to not miss the opportunity. The flag displays may be visited without cost. Each event is a gift to the local community made possible by the hard work and planning of host organizations and dedicated volunteers.

Find an event near you www.healingfield.org/schedule-of-events/

Please support these events through flag sponsorships and donations. Field of Honor® and Healing Field® flag displays return so much to their communities on so many levels. If there is one in your area, spread the word and bring your family & friends.

This Year's Fundraiser Brings Total Raised for Autism NJ to Nearly $40,000 in total

It was amazing to see Broadway stars who I’ve seen in shows on my own campus, advocating and performing for a cause that is very near and dear to my heart,”

— Rebecca Erdelyi

MONTCLAIR, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, May 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Monday April 22, the Montclair State University School of Communication and Media Public Relations Student Society of America raised $7,000 for Autism New Jersey during its 7th annual “Broadway’s Best” benefit concert. This year’s stellar lineup included three-time Tony nominee Rebecca Luker, Broadway royalty Sierra Boggess, and up-and-comer and “My Fair Lady” Laura Benanti understudy, Heather Botts. The three powerhouse women performed fan favorites from their careers, as well as covers of popular Broadway songs.
The event was cohosted by Montclair State students Ally DeForge and Gabi Bartnik, who were among the many PRSSA students who made the night possible.
“As a member of PRSSA, I was able to help in planning and getting the schedule ready for the day,” DeForge said. “All of the members were super involved in planning and prepping for the event. We had amazing direction from our E-Board, and they helped us to know exactly where we needed to be and what we needed to do to make sure the event was a success.”
Also joining the lineup for the third year was the Paper Mill Playhouse Show Choir. The group is comprised of 67 high school students from across New Jersey who are passionate about musical theatre. The group performed a medley of songs from the hit film “The Greatest Showman,” as well as fan-favorites from popular Broadway shows including “Dear Evan Hansen” and “Hamilton.” Montclair State’s very own Freshmen Revue also let their voices shine with beautiful harmonies and top-notch solos.
Another highlight of the night was William Paterson graduate Jonathan Weiner performing Robert Starer’s work “Colors” on the piano. Weiner also took the stage later in the night to preview his upcoming virtual reality film and documentary “Chocolate Milk,” which he is creating alongside MSU School of Communication and Media professor Sonja Bozic.
MSU alum Robert Getz also screened his short film “Origins of Heroes,” which connects his experience with Asperger’s to the experiences of popular superheroes.
The night concluded with Boggess’ stunning version of “Think of Me” from “Phantom of the Opera.”
“It was amazing to see Broadway stars who I’ve seen in shows on my own campus, advocating and performing for a cause that is very near and dear to my heart,” said Montclair State Graduate Student Rebecca Erdelyi. “It was a really wonderful experience.”
In addition, among the items raffled off was a specially autographed for the event package of CDs/DVDs and some autographed photos from Audra McDonald.
