Scituate, MA (PRWEB) December 21, 2011
Hunter Systems Group, Inc. today announced that it has entered into a contract with the Integrated Law & Justice Agency for Orange County (ILJAOC), a Joint Powers Authority representing the entire Criminal Justice System in that County of over 3 million people. Under the terms of the Agreement, Hunter will sell and configure up to 31 Hunter SmartShot systems to 20 Police Departments in Orange County and to the Orange County Sheriffs Department. The contract, funded using Federal grants, is worth in excess of $ 100,000, and will allow local police departments and law enforcement agencies to take consistent, National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) – compliant, facial recognition-ready mug shot photographs with just a click of a mouse.
In reviewing their decision, ILJAOCs Executive Director, Bob McDonell said, After a thorough public Request for Proposal (RFP) process and the due diligence that followed on the selected Vendor, we chose the Hunter SmartShot solution as our mug shot capturing system of choice for our Member Agencies. After exploring the options available, we found the Hunter SmartShot answer to be a reasonably priced, cutting-edge system, while still permitting our member agencies users to easily take NIST compliant photographs. We look forward to our continuing relationship with Hunter Systems Group.
Ease of use and consistency is important in the ILJAOCs data and information sharing initiative. The use of Facial Recognition technology in the County through the ILJAOCs System, is enhanced when the organic mug shots being taken comply with NIST best practices. Inconsistencies, like slight differences in lighting and positioning, are drastically reduced when the photographic process is completely automated and employs biometric capabilities.
We believe that this is a beneficial product for a law enforcement agency to have in its own right, since it serves the valuable purpose of taking consistent mug shot photos, states Hunter Systems Group President and CEO Mark Thompson. But when several area law enforcement agencies all use the same mug shot capturing system, the effectiveness of the facial recognition initiative is dramatically increased.
Upon fulfillment of the ILJAOC contract, Hunter SmartShot will be installed in over 200 law enforcement agencies around the United States, including Orange County, California, the Massachusetts State Police and the Rhode Island Department of Corrections. As the technology takes on mainstream importance, we believe that facial recognition is only as good as its images, says Thompson. Hunter SmartShot is the best option to ensure that these images are high quality and consistent.

What Would Progressives Do Without The People They Disdain To Do Their Dirty Work? Progressivism is a political attitude favoring or advocating changes or reform through governmental action. Progressivism is often viewed in opposition to conservative or reactionary ideologies. The Progressive Movement began in cities with settlement workers and reformers who were interested in helping those facing harsh conditions at home and at work. The reformers spoke out about the need for laws regulating tenement housing and child labor. They also called for better working conditions for women. In the United States, the term progressivism emerged in the late 19th century into the 20th century in reference to a more general response to the vast changes brought by industrialization: an alternative to both the traditional conservative response to social and economic issues and to the various more radical streams of socialism and anarchism which opposed them. Political parties, such as the Progressive Party, organized at the start of the 20th century, and progressivism made great strides under American presidents Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Lyndon Baines Johnson. Despite being associated with left-wing politics in the United States and Canada, the term “progressive” has occasionally been used by groups not particularly left-wing. The Progressive Democrats in the Republic of Ireland took the name “progressivism” despite being considered centre …

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 24, 2011
As a result of globalization, outsourcing, downsizing, recession and even natural disaster, “job security” can seem like a thing of the past. More people are frustrated and concerned about their economic future and lack of control and are seeking a change. The desire for a better future has found more and more people seeking a home based business. People are finding that the freedom associated with a home based business is having the flexibility to choose when they work, with whom they work and how they can gain access to the business of their dreams.
Paul Zane Pilzer, world renowned economist, stated Direct Selling offers people the skills and tools to create new income opportunitiesto venture out on their own as entrepreneurs and grow in confidence versus being consumed by the fear associated with a shrinking job market.
According to the Wall Street Journal, around the world, millions of families use earnings from their direct selling businesses to make their monthly car or mortgage payments, take family vacations, send their children to private schools or purchase a few luxuries. For these individuals, the money earned each month, regardless of the amount, makes a big difference.
With TriVita, earning extra income is as simple as recommending their breakthrough anti-inflammatory wellness drink, Nopalea to others. Michael Ellison, TriVitas Global CEO and Founder, shares, TriVita is not just about the opportunity alone but what the possibilities are, and what our purpose might be. TriVitas premium wellness product, Nopalea has been helping thousands of people in the world and is only offered by this mission-based company.
Nopalea is having a significant impact in the United States and is now one of the top direct selling products, with countless people experiencing its health and wellness benefits for a variety of inflammatory related health challenges. With the overwhelming demand for Nopalea in the U.S. and with inflammation becoming so commonplace in todays society, TriVita is proud to bring this innovative product internationally.
Nopalea contains Betalains, a rare class of antioxidants which are bioflavonoids in the Quercetin family, and found in abundance in the Nopal cactus fruit. People who have consistently taken Nopalea have reported reduced aches and pains, improved breathing, and improvements in skin conditions and other symptoms of inflammation.
TriVita officially received a Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) listing in Australia for its Nopalea anti-inflammatory juice in May 2011. TriVita is pleased to have received this listing from such a world renowned regulatory agency of the highest standards. Many companies have failed or do not even attempt to go through the rigorous process for listing.
Receiving a TGA listing for Nopalea is a giant step in the companys mission of taking wellness to the world. With TriVitas unique product and a business model that supports global growth, it offers an opportunity to anyone. No existing experience or specific skills are required to be successful.
Fortune magazine called direct selling the best kept secret in the business world and financial experts have said it’s a “recession proof” industry. Warren Buffett, widely regarded as one of the most successful investors in the world, is quoted as saying, “Direct Sales is the best investment I ever made”. Paul Zane Pilzer has indicated the wellness industry will be the next trillion dollar industry. Combining Direct Sales with the wellness industry has proven to be a successful combination for many affiliates.
The wellness industry is booming and premium wellness products are in high demand. TriVita is a growing and established company with a proven track record. TriVita offers tools to help affiliates to grow their businesses. One of the affiliates who recently became a part of TriVita shared, I was amazed that you receive a free website thats personalized for me to start marketing. I was also very impressed with the training they offer as well as the first-class tools and resources. They even have a virtual back office that makes growing and managing your business even easier.

TriVita offers their support 24/7 so anyone in any country has access to the information they need to get started with their wellness business.
In an article by Teresa Day on how direct sellers are leveraging new technology, she states direct sellers have historically held a competitive edge over traditional retailers of goods and services because of their skills in connecting with people, their personal ethics in business dealings and in the automatic trust and respect generated when dealing with word-of-mouth advertising through networking.

Reports show real unemployment (BLS U6) fell to 16.7%, while Gallup claims 19.9%. Who do you believe… recovery?
Question by Rocky Mountain Patriot: Reports show real unemployment (BLS U6) fell to 16.7%, while Gallup claims 19.9%. Who do you believe… recovery?
Links are posted for both Bureau of Labor Statistics and Gallup poll data with Gallup.com capably explaining the basis for the disparity in their 19.9% rate from the March government based calculations released by the Department of Labor. Since the burden of who’s unemployed and who remains unemployed long-term is disproportionate based on demographic data such as race, ethnicity, age, and education levels, who appears to be gaining ground in the anemic, jobless recovery liberals suggest is taking place?
Two more links will show which group has gained jobs over the past year, while legitimate citizens languish in search of largely non-existent jobs for American workers. How does the Y!A community feel about illegal migrants and limited numbers of recognized immigrants gaining more than 656,000 jobs, while citizens here continued to lose more than 1.2 million jobs during the same reported recovery period? In case you haven’t recognized the determination of increasing numbers of businesses to hire only the cheapest employees, consider watching the Cohen & Grigsby Fake Job Ads video, which shows some eye opening Human Resources tricks.
Can you foresee real unemployment falling into, or below, the 10% range again, as it was for 93 of George Bush’s 96 months in office (right up until the 2008 election, in fact), by 2016 as government forecasts now suggest? Or will it take the rest of the decade, assuming it ever returns to pre-Obama levels? For anyone keeping track, the real unemployment U6 rate has averaged 16.6% over the 25-plus months the President has been in office with the rare privilege of implementing policies of a Democratic Party Super Majority, thoroughly in control of every measure of legislation.

Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 19, 2011
The law firm of Employment Legal Team (ELT) (http://www.employmentlegalteam.com) recently announced today the opening of its flagship office in Washington, D.C. to meet the growing demand for exceptional, yet affordable, employment law legal services in the areas such as whistleblower actions, security clearance revocations, wrongful termination, employment discrimination, non-competitive promotions, disability retirement, workers’ compensation, and the Family Medical Leave Act.
According to Mr. Gilliard, A result of the Federal government’s belt-tightening is that agency managers now seek to reduce the rolls of vulnerable and older workers, and to reduce the needs for government contractors. This is taking place in an environment in which thousands of unemployed Americans are ready to take the job of someone terminated from private sector employment. We are ready and equipped to defend government employees and government contractor employees who are unfairly let go, older employees who have asked to retire really because they might be thought to make too much, and employees left with no choice but to blow the whistle on management or otherwise take the blame for management fraud, waste and abuse of authority.”
Mr. Gilliards represents Federal and private sector employees across the nation before the U.S. Merit Systems Protection Board, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
Gerald Gilliard is a former board member of the D.C. Bar Labor and Employment Law Steering Committee and a current member of the National Employment Law Association. Mr. Gilliard, the son of an Army Reserve sergeant, attended the University of Pennsylvania on an AFSCME scholarship and is a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center.
Employment Legal Team is a full-service employment law firm based in Washington, D.C. Our attorneys have extensive experience in a broad range of employment law practice areas. Our attorneys have successfully represented clients before numerous state and federal trial and appellate courts, as well as various municipal, state and federal agencies and authorities.
