B-Three Solutions Outlines When to Choose Custom Software Over COTS Products

Leading software company B-Three Solutions shares an expert look at when to opt for custom software over a commercially available off-the-shelf product.

PITTSBURGH, PA, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — B-Three Solutions specializes in developing custom software and prioritizes project quality, schedule, and cost to ensure that its clients receive an impeccable product on time and on budget. As industry leaders, the B-Three team expertly outlines when to choose a custom solution over an existing piece of commercially available software.

"When choosing between COTS and custom, it's about understanding when to simply purchase a product, and when to have something more specialized put together," explains a member of the B-Three Solutions team, speaking from the leading software firm's headquarters in the Steel City of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

COTS—or commercial off-the-shelf—products are readily available pieces of software designed to fulfill the needs of a broad range of individuals, businesses, and other organizations.

Commercially available off-the-shelf products, B-Three Solutions says, often do an excellent job of meeting the majority of purchasers' needs. Examples of COTS software include operating systems, word processing tools, and email clients such as Microsoft Outlook and Apple Mail. Where an operation has outgrown the scope of such applications, however, a custom alternative is often called for.

According to B-Three Solutions, there's also another reason for choosing custom software over off-the-shelf products, above and beyond having outgrown what's commercially available. This, the leading Pittsburgh-based software firm states, is when a solution simply doesn't exist on the open market. "When a client needs a solution to a problem that cannot be solved with an existing, readily available piece of software, they turn to experts such as ourselves," reveals a B-Three team member.

A prime example of this, B-Three Solutions reports, is its celebrated Sight On Scene security mapping application. A custom security mapping tool, SOS by B-Three Solutions allows school districts to accurately create live-touch, interactive maps of their buildings. These can then be shared with first responders in an emergency, meaning safer schools through improved visibility for disaster response.

With a DIY floor plan builder, security camera integration, beacon tracking technology, an in-app chat function, and more, no other product does what Sight On Scene can do, according to B-Three Solutions.

While standalone applications exist to tackle some of what Sight On Scene can do, no combination of commercially available off-the-shelf products could come close to providing the overall level of functionality that Pittsburgh-based B-Three has achieved, the company says.

Its custom solution was envisioned from the ground up to empower and provide unparalleled visibility and open channels of communication to school staff members. In this regard, only a piece of custom software would suffice, they suggest.

Other reasons for choosing custom software over COTS products, meanwhile, include when specific user requirements cannot be met, when stringent workflows cannot be adapted to suit a COTS product, or when security implications prevent an organization from using an off-the-shelf solution for any reason.

"In the longer term, a piece of custom software will very often pay for itself many times over," adds B-Three Solutions.

Guam Passes Landmark Anti-Cruelty Law, but Politicians Play Fast & Loose with Cockfighting Prohibition

Cockfighting Match

There’s been progress against animal cruelty in Guam and Puerto Rico, but there are still troubling actions by some political leaders in both U.S. territories.

It’s time for politicians to send a clear message “to stop gathering at fighting venues, to lay down the knives and gaffs they affix to the birds’ legs, and to cease any staging of animal fights.””

— Wayne Pacelle

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — There’s been progress against animal cruelty in Guam and Puerto Rico, but there are still troubling actions by some political leaders in both U.S. territories. It’s past due for them, including Puerto Rico’s newly elected governor, to show leadership and make it plain that illegal animal fighting must stop on the islands.

Earlier this month, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit affirmed the constitutionality of the federal law against animal fighting as applied to Puerto Rico, removing any thread of an argument that cockfighters in the Commonwealth legally stage animal fights there.

“We affirm the district court’s decision and hold that Section 12615 is a valid exercise of Congress’s Commerce Clause power and does not violate plaintiffs’ individual rights,” wrote the three-judge panel in a ruling handed down on January 14th. The decision came after cockfighting interests appealed an October 2021 ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Gustavo Gelpi who granted the motion for summary judgment from the United States. A native of Puerto Rico, Gelpi declared that “[n]either the Commonwealth’s political statues, nor the Territorial Clause, impede the United States Government from enacting laws that apply to all citizens of this Nation alike, whether as a state or territory.”

Meanwhile, on Guam, Governor Lou Leon Guerrero last week signed the Protecting Animal Welfare and Safety (PAWS) Act, also known as Pugua’s Law to honor the memory of the dog whose violent killing spurred a movement to change Guam’s animal cruelty laws. The PAWS Act, led by Senator Sabina Perez and lobbied for by Guam Animals In Need (GAIN), dramatically upgrades the territorial law against animal cruelty. That measure upgrades penalties for malicious cruelty and neglect, strengthens the dogfighting law, and bans the practice of bestiality. Thanks to GAIN and some humane-minded lawmakers, Guam now has one of the strongest anti-cruelty laws in the nation.

The new law does, however, have one major defect: it does not ban cockfighting. More to the point, the PAWS Act has an amendment, attached by Senator Jose Terlaje, “to officially recognize cockfighting as a cultural practice under Guam law.”

Normally, a pro-cockfighting provision like this one in a larger anti-cruelty bill would be a poison pill provision for us at Animal Wellness Action and a reason for us to oppose the legislation. The difference here is that Terlaje’s provision is without any legal authority. It is window dressing. Federal law, affirmed by a U.S. District Court in Guam, already bans cockfighting in the territory. Long before this legislative maneuver, Guam had chosen not to ban cockfighting, and that’s precisely why AWA worked so hard to support national legislation to ban the activity in the U.S. and its territories, including on Guam.

Legislative actions to disavow the federal law have been a common course of action for some lawmakers in Guam and Puerto Rico. At the end of 2019, just before the federal anti-cockfighting law was to take national effect, Puerto Rico’s legislature passed a cosmetic provision similar to the amendment to PAWS. Like the Guam measure, the amendment to Puerto Rico’s law is legally meaningless. But it’s a dog whistle to the cockfighters in these territories, who may try to use this language as a pretense for illegal conduct. An investigation we conducted some months ago in Puerto Rico revealed cockfighters continuing to stage fights at more than 25 pits and arenas.

This week, I wrote to Puerto Rico Governor Pedro Pierluisi — with former Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson and animal law expert Ana Maria Hernandez Marti in San Juan as my co-authors — and urged him to speak up on this matter and intercede to stop confusing and legally unsupported messages to the Commonwealth’s cockfighters:

“Earlier this month, you took the oath of office, swearing to defend the U.S. Constitution and that of the Commonwealth, more than a year after a U.S. District Court in San Juan affirmed the constitutionality of a federal law banning cockfighting and more than a week before the U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed it. With these unambiguous rulings — where cockfighting interests pleaded their case and acknowledged the authority of the U.S. courts to adjudicate this matter — there can be no doubt that the United States has the authority under the Commerce Clause to halt this form of animal cruelty, which is intertwined with gambling, electronic promotions, and other instrumentalities of interstate commerce. Whatever your views about cockfighting — whether approval or antipathy — we urge you to act in a way that promotes adherence to the law.”

We just went through a national crisis where the former President fabricated an argument about a stolen election, even after the courts decided the issue. We don’t need politicians in Puerto Rico or Guam making up a lie about the legality of cockfighting in the wake of court rulings that say exactly the opposite. In our letter to Governor Peirluisi that “[p]oliticians and citizens can criticize federal policy actions, but they cannot opt-out of federal laws on their whim.”

Politicians are unwittingly putting cockfighters in legal jeopardy with this kind of pandering. They owe it to their constituents to tell the truth: that violating the federal law against cockfighting brings serious penalties — a fine of up to $250,000 and prison time of up to 5 years for each violation. It’s time for territorial politicians to send a clear message to cockfighters “to stop gathering at fighting venues, to lay down the knives and gaffs they affix to the birds’ legs, and to cease any staging of animal fights.”

Citizens Commission on Human Rights Says American Psychiatric Association Apology for Supporting Racism is Incomplete

Benjamin Rush

“Father of American Psychiatry” Benjamin Rush was a slave owner

Excerpt from CCHR article: “American Psychiatric Association Apology Fails To Fully Admit Psychiatry’s Racial Human Rights Abuses and Role In Creating Racism”

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) recent apology for its support of structural racism understates psychiatry’s racial human rights abuses and its long history of instigating racism by providing “rationales” that justified and perpetuated it.

Over the last 50 years, the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) has exposed that sordid history and intensified its efforts last June by forming the Task Force Against Psychiatric Racism and Modern Day Eugenics.

The APA’s apology, issued January 18, states: “The APA apologizes for our contributions to the structural racism in our nation….”

The APA further admits: “These appalling past actions, as well as their harmful effects, are ingrained in the structure of psychiatric practice….”

But the APA glosses over “those appalling past actions” by merely admitting that psychiatric “practitioners have at times subjected persons of African descent and Indigenous people who suffered from mental illness to abusive treatment, experimentation, victimization in the name of ‘scientific evidence,’ along with racialized theories that attempted to confirm their deficit status.”

That bare-bones admission fails to adequately portray the magnitude of psychiatrists’ role as prime instigators of “scientific racism,” creating and promoting the false theories of racial inferiority that have been widely used to “justify” the oppression, segregation, and population control of Black Americans.

It is noteworthy that in the late 1700s, psychiatry’s own “Father of American Psychiatry,” Dr. Benjamin Rush, a slave owner, created a medical justification for racism by claiming Blacks suffered from a disease called “negritude,” supposedly a form of leprosy, and recommended their segregation to prevent them from “infecting” others. A logo with the image of Benjamin Rush is still used for APA ceremonial purposes and internal documents. The APA still gives a Benjamin Rush Award.

Psychiatrists in the American mental health movement later latched onto and promoted the false science of eugenics (from the Greek word eugenes, meaning “good stock”), which claims some humans are inferior to others and should not have children.

Pushed by mental health practitioners, the eugenics idea of racial inferiority became ingrained in the U.S. and led to efforts such as Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger’s plan to reduce the Black population through sterilization and the Ku Klux Klan’s white supremacist activities.
Further, the APA’s brief confession of “experimentation [and] victimization” of people of color “who suffered from mental illness” not only downplays the barbaric psychosurgery and psychiatric experiments conducted on African Americans, but also fails to honestly admit that many subjects in these experiments were perfectly healthy. Those experiments include:

• In 1951, psychiatrist Walter Freeman experimented with lobotomies on Black patients at the Veterans Administration hospital in Tuskegee, Alabama, describing the procedure as “a surgically induced childhood.” (A lobotomy is psychiatry’s surgical procedure of cutting into the brain to try to alter behavior.)

• In the 1950s, Black prisoners in New Orleans were used by psychiatrists Robert Heath and Harry Bailey for psychosurgery experiments that implanted electrodes into their brains. Bailey later boasted it was “cheaper to use [Blacks*] than cats because they were everywhere and cheap experimental animals.” [*Bailey’s racial slur is omitted here]

• Psychiatrist Robert Heath conducted CIA-funded secret drug experiments on Black prisoners at the Louisiana State Penitentiary using LSD and the drug bulbocapnine, which can produce severe stupor, to see if the drug would cause “loss of speech, loss of sensitivity to pain, loss of memory, [and] loss of will power.…”

• In the mid-1950s at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), drug-addicted African Americans were given LSD in an experiment that kept many hallucinating for 77 consecutive days. In the 1960s, NIMH again used Black men as test subjects for an experimental hallucinogen, the chemical warfare drug BZ, which was many times more powerful than LSD. In the 1970s, following riots in a predominantly black section of Los Angeles, NIMH experimented on African Americans, including children as young as five, to see if they had a violence gene that could be controlled by psychiatric drugs.
The APA has not admitted practitioners’ role in creating the present-day mental health system of psychiatric labeling, forced psychiatric drugs and treatment, and incarceration in psychiatric facilities that enabled racist treatment.

African Americans are disproportionately diagnosed with mental illness and disproportionately committed to psychiatric facilities. They are more likely to be labeled with conduct disorder and psychotic disorders, especially schizophrenia, and overly prescribed antipsychotic drugs. Black men are more likely to be prescribed excessive doses of these psychiatric drugs. Black children are overly labeled with ADD/ADHD.

The APA is correct, therefore, in stating, “The APA is beginning the process of making amends….” There is much, much further to go in publicly taking responsibility for psychiatrists’ essential role in instigating and perpetuating racism and for the human rights violations of its experiments and treatments.

Until it does so, its incomplete apology may be viewed as political pandering and an attempt to whitewash history to pave the way for the psychiatric-pharmaceutical industry to expand – very profitably – into the African American community.


The Citizens Commission on Human Rights International traveling exhibit has been displayed in Washington, DC, at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Caucus, as well as other locations. The exhibit has toured more than 441 major cities around the world and has educated over 800,000 people on the history and contemporary practices of psychiatry which are still rampant with abuse.

Buggzy Hoffa Starts Off 2021 With A Bang With Upcoming Single ‘How You Want It’

USA, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The multifaceted artist is back again to dominate yet another year with his new single ‘How You Want It.

Brooklyn born Brandon Wilson, known by his stage name Buggzy Hoffa has built himself to be a man of many talents. While his other endeavors like real estate, cryptocurrency, and stock trading have flourished and brought him much success, he has placed his focus on developing as an artist.

Since his debut in 2020, his music has been well received and his songs have been accumulating numbers online and over radio. His rise has ascended at the rate it has due to his belief in not just creating music but creating unique music. Buggzy Hoffa always had the gift of combining words with a captivating flow, and over the years his talent has sharpened and refined.

Alongside his craft as a rapper, Buggzy Hoffa is an entrepreneur and a previous child actor; taking part of the entertainment industry since the young age of six. This is partly accredited to the environment in which he grew up. His father James E. Wilson, who was the stage manager at ‘The Cosby show’ and his brothers, Rameses Wilson aka ‘Trill Cosby’ and Charlie Wilson held the necessary connections in the entertainment industry to open Buggzy’s eyes to the possibilities in entertainment.

Today, manifesting upon his love for music and entertainment, Buggzy’s place in the industry is growing, bringing him many accolades and achievements. Buggzy Hoffa isn’t bound by barriers and limitations. After dropping his education to pursue his passions, the average human being would doubt their greatness, but Buggzy buckled down even more, building the status and success he now enjoys.

Currently, his focus is set on leaving his mark in the music world, after which taking his artistry into the film industry to establish himself as a writer, director, and actor. To this end, he introduced his American hip-hop group “Black Diamond Mafia” to the world with their debut single “Superfly” which went on to gain massive success along their follow up single “FireHose” which accumulated 1 million views on YouTube and charted on the Top 50 iTunesHip Hop Singles and Digital Radio Tracker Top 10.

Having built up this musical success with his Black Diamond Mafia family with singles like “Pray On” that built up 662 spins and “Head Bussa” 2421 spins over prime-time stations such as Hot107, Famous Cut, Big Shot Radio, Apple Digital DJs, Spin100, BCB HipHop, BCB Hits, Cold Cash Radio, ETMR, KDOMm Power 108.1, and Razors Edge Radio, Buggzy Hoffa’s audience has reached in the millions. Using his fan base of loyal supporters, Buggzy is ready to unleash his first single of 2021 “How You Want It” scheduled to drop on February, 5,2021 through Black Diamond Mafia/Eric B Music Group (EBMG)/KMG/Sony.

Buggzy’s unique music and exquisite persona is felt through his new single; the track is short and sweet with an aggressive undertone. It has the same energy and melody that fans have fallen in love with, lyrical with a tune that sets him apart from other songs fighting for the spotlight. The vibe hypnotizes with an infectious sound that is deserving of all the recognition to come.

“How You Want It” is further proof of the talent and depth of Buggzy’s craft. He has a way of composing the right tones and flows with rhyme schemes that compliment their sound. Few are able to create back to back hits like Buggzy; and if this is how he is prepping the start of the new year, “How You Want It” sets the bar high for what is to come. Buggzy has already been a standout artist during his breakout year in 2020, which saw praise from The Source, VENTs and Magazine among others after peaking at #3 on iTunes South Africa’s HipHop charts. “How You Want It” has even more potential to blow up with the no-holds-barred production style of J. Cole and Joey Bada$$. Buggzy Hoffa continues to solidify his place in the music industry, putting out hit after hit for the masses and growing his following.

The published author and collector of all things art, is about to shake up the world with his new single “How You Want It.” Follow him online and stream his upcoming new hit single via the links:

Local Authors Pen Captivating Book Spotlighting Colorado’s Wild Animal Sanctuary as it Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

Readers Invited to Discover Life-Changing Magic of the Sanctuary in Forever Wild, Forever Home

KEENESBURG, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Local Authors Pen Captivating Book Spotlighting Colorado’s Wild Animal Sanctuary as it Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

Less than an hour north of Denver, roam more than 500 large carnivores – including over 200 bears, 70 African lions, and 70 tigers. Now living at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado, these wild animals and the stories of their rescue, often from heartbreaking conditions, are the focal point of the newly released and groundbreaking book Forever Wild, Forever Home: The Story of The Wild Animal Sanctuary of Colorado.

“We’ve all been waiting 40 years for this book, and are so grateful to Melanie and Mark [Shellenbarger] for the tremendous amount of work they put into it,” said Pat Craig, Founder and Executive Director of The Wild Animal Sanctuary. “Mixed with humor and occasional tugs at the heartstrings, it details the incredible journey from our humble beginnings in Boulder to being the largest and oldest sanctuary in the world devoted to large carnivores.”

With over 100 color photos, Forever Wild, Forever Home is an absorbing, thoughtful, and timely story from the Sanctuary’s founding to the present day. It offers a heartwarming and humorous behind-the-scenes look at what it is really like to rescue, rehabilitate and provide lifelong care for these magnificent survivors.

Describing what led them to undertake such a project, local Denver authors Melanie and Mark Shellenbarger said, “When we first saw the enormous habitats of the Sanctuary in 2018 and personally learned about the Captive Wildlife Crisis, our lives were changed forever. Our hope is this book will offer an accessible but deeper look into the nobility of the animals that call the Sanctuary home and the heroic labors of those who care for them.”

Forever Wild, Forever Home is available online at the Sanctuary website, and is also available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and others in hardcover, paperback and e-book formats.

About the authors
A retired university faculty member and a retired business executive, the authors began volunteering at the Sanctuary in 2019 and were given unprecedented access to staff and volunteers in researching and writing about the animals who call the Sanctuary home. Melanie’s award-winning book, High Country Summers: The Early Second Homes of Colorado, 1880-1940 was published by the University of Arizona Press in 2012.

Sulpetro Inc. and Knoema Form Data Partnership

The latest insights from this data partnership include a Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Plant Overview for Texas, the leader in refinery LPG production in the U.S.

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, January 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sulpetro Inc. is excited to announce a new data partnership with Knoema, the premier data platform that makes the world’s data discoverable and usable, to provide alternative data insights.

This partnership builds on Sulpetro’s comprehensive natural gas liquids (LPG/NGL/HGL) dataset to construct interactive visualizations to facilitate NGL market research and analysis for Canadian and U.S. markets. Sulpetro’s data, pulled from Federal, State (U.S.), Provincial (Canada) government agencies, oil & gas think-tanks, financials, and other paid-proprietary sources, provides the most comprehensive NGL dataset available.

The latest insights from this data partnership include a Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Plant Overview for Texas, the leader in refinery LPG production in the U.S.

This visualization is just the start of what is sure to be a long and fruitful partnership.

Given the turmoil experienced within the conventional energy sector throughout 2020, many industry publications have released alternative reports and revised forecasts. Knoema’s Energy Industry Data Brief – a collection of the most popular and often used publications in the energy sector from open and alternative sources – allows companies to crosscheck their baselines rapidly. The latest edition includes new LPG data coverage from Sulpetro.

“We’re pleased to offer Sulpetro’s industry-leading natural gas liquids data on the Knoema platform,” said Charles Poliacof, CEO of Knoema. “More than ten million visitors come to Knoema each year searching for the data necessary to make the most informed business decisions. We’re looking forward to increasing the visibility of Sulpetro’s NGL data within our community and beyond.”

Knoema, an Eldridge business, is the most comprehensive source of global decision-making data in the world. Their tools allow individuals and organizations to discover, visualize, model, and present their data and the world’s data to facilitate better decisions and better outcomes.
