ThanksUSA Launches Major Expansion of Programs Assisting Military Families

Pathways for Patriots Programs Strengthen Resources for Education and Career Enhancement

Work is scarce, money is scarce, stress is high, and I don’t want to give up on my goals.”

— ThanksUSA Scholar Alison

MCLEAN, VA, USA, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — ThanksUSA today announced a major expansion of its programs to assist military families through the Pathways for Patriots program, spurred by the coronavirus pandemic and fueled by the ongoing needs of military families. The national non-profit organization will supplement its academic scholarships with significantly enhanced programs that connect, enrich and inspire military-connected individuals.

“Our military families are already burdened by lengthy deployments, constant moves, financial hardships, high spousal unemployment and more. The pandemic is compounding those challenges,” said Jon Rosa, ThanksUSA President and CEO. “It is critical that we help alleviate those additional burdens for those who sacrifice so much for our country.”

According to a recent survey of ThanksUSA scholarship recipients, the coronavirus crisis – against which the military is also deployed – has increased their financial and mental health burdens and significantly disrupted their education and career enhancement opportunities. The new programs, aimed at addressing these issues, will launch this week with a two-part peer discussion "Pandemic Resilience: From Surviving to Thriving," facilitated by ThanksUSA co-founders Kelsi and Rachel Okun.

The survey uncovered stories of anguish, including that of military spouse Alison who is pursuing a career as a dental hygienist. She was jobless for almost two months because of the pandemic and is now juggling only part-time hours as well as costly internet access with her children, all forced to learn online. Alison wrote, “Work is scarce, money is scarce, stress is high, and I don’t want to give up on my goals.”

Leticia’s husband contracted COVID-19 on duty; she became sick too. Still not fully recovered, studying and with small children at home, her load has only become weightier: “I am a teacher, mom, best friend, wife, maid, chef, nurse, etc. Of course, this pandemic and having to deal with the constant changes has affected my mental state,” said Leticia.

“More than half of our respondents cited economic and emotional stress,” explained Rosa. “On the education front, 58 percent reported that their internship, work-study, or other job opportunities were halted or curtailed, while 45 percent noted a lack of access to instructors or mentors for career development advice. Their future career goals are in jeopardy.”

The expanded Pathways for Patriots program is intended to right the course. Among its elements are:

– Pathfinder sessions in which small numbers of participants will hear from professionals about their career field, obstacles and lessons learned;
– Around the Table peer discussions to address financial, emotional, educational and career issues with significant focus on solutions;
– Ask the Expert counseling offered by experts with questions submitted through social media;
– Seminar series focused on career development; and
– Enrichment/job recruitment fairs.

The monthly Pathfinder mentoring sessions will feature entrepreneurship advice from Elizabeth Frazee, co-founder of TwinLogic Strategies; career-development coaching from Alex Ehrlich, a longtime leader in the financial services industry; business etiquette from Jessica Marventano, co-author of The Marvelous Millennial's Manual to Modern Manners; and more.

“Americans everywhere are hurting, our military families among them. Our goal is to offer a helping hand to the children and spouses of our service members taking them from the classroom to the boardroom, vocational training to the manufacturing arena,” said Rosa. “Pathways for Patriots does that and will inspire confidence in a brighter future for them – personally and professionally.”

Oregon US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate Urges a Family of a Navy Veteran with Lung Cancer in Oregon Who Had Navy Asbestos Exposure to Call the Lawyers at Karst von Oiste About Compensation-It May Exceed $100,000

"If your loved one has lung cancer, he is a Navy Veteran and he had exposure to asbestos in the navy decades ago-please call the attorneys at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303.”

— Oregon US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

PORTLAND, OREGON, USA, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Oregon US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We are appealing to the wife or adult son-daughter of a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer to please ask him if he had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy. If the answer is yes-we are urging them to call the lawyers at Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Financial compensation for a person like this might be over a hundred thousand dollars. The typical person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old-and they served in the navy in the 1960s and 1970s. The financial compensation claim does not involve suing the navy. It does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.

"Our top priority is seeing to it that US Navy Veterans get compensated if they had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy decades ago and who now have lung cancer. Most of these people never get compensated because they and their family members are not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust fund was set up for them too-not just mesothelioma. If your husband or dad has recently been diagnosed lung cancer, he is a Navy Veteran and he had heavy exposure to asbestos when he served in the navy decades ago-please call the attorneys at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. We think you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/

Milestone Auctions to offer unprecedented lineup of fresh-to-market, historically important firearms, Jan. 30

Colt single-action presentation Army Revolver, .45 caliber, one of four guns shipped on April 15, 1887 to Colt distributors Hartley & Graham of New York. Engraved by Cuno Helfricht or his shop to indicate presentation in 1892 to Jefferson D. Kurtz, former

Outstanding Berdan Sharps Model 1859 rifle, bore .52, one of the finest-condition rifles known of the approximately 2,000 shipped to Berdan in 1862. Extraordinary condition, all original in original Civil War-era rifle case, ID’d to James Baker of Ohio, w

Rare center-fire cartridge Le Mat revolver, 13mm/20 gauge, manufactured 1877-1883 in Belgium. Nine-shot fluted cylinder with 20-gauge shotgun in center. Very fine example with crisp action. One of five known examples. Estimate $18,000-$25,000

Huge and gruesome 18th-century hand-forged man trap, 55in wide with 17.5in spread of riveted teeth. Nearly identical to an example in a Lincoln, Illinois museum. Provenance: Phil Majerich collection. Estimate $2,500-$3,500

Rare Vietnam-captured Hungarian 91/30-M52 sniper rifle, 1953, one of the rarest of all Mosin-Nagant variations and one of only a handful known to have originated from the Vietnam War. Provenance: Gary Thomas collection. Estimate $5,000-$7,000

Featured: 1887 Helfricht Colt revolver, Berdan Sharps Model 1859, 1903 Springfield President’s Match Trophy rifle, center-fire LeMat, 1955 boxed Colt Python

Two highly refined collections will be offered in their entirety, the late Gary Thomas’ military gun collection, and the Phil Majerich collection of early explorers’ traps and accoutrements.”

— Chris Sammet, Co-owner of Milestone Auctions

WILLOUGHBY, OHIO, UNITED STATES, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Milestone Auctions’ Premier Antique & Modern Firearms Auctions traditionally include the cream of the crop from many categories, ranging from provenanced early arms associated with historic battles to high-condition, fresh-to-the-market examples from noted private collections. That’s what bidders can look forward to seeing on January 30 at Milestone’s exceptional 832-lot sale. All forms of remote bidding will be available to those who cannot attend in person, including live online.

Two highly refined collections will be offered in their entirety: the late Gary Thomas’ military gun collection, and the Phil Majerich collection of early explorers’ traps and accoutrements. Both of these long-held collections were amassed primarily through private transactions, therefore 99% of their contents have never before appeared at auction.

Ohioan Gary Thomas, who passed away in September, specified in his will that he wished for his collection to be auctioned by Milestone. “Gary built one of the largest private collections of military weapons with ‘bring-back’ paperwork – documents that proved GIs had the legal right to return home to America with their war trophies,” said Chris Sammet, co-owner of Milestone Auctions. “This sort of paperwork is considered the ultimate in authentication, as it tells us who carried a particular gun, where it was used, and its serial number.” The Thomas collection also includes one of the largest known private collection of documented Vietnam War weapons.

The second highlight collection in the sale is that of Pennsylvanian Phil Majerich. “Phil’s collection focuses on early explorers’ traps and accoutrements, especially hand-forged examples from the golden age of America’s fur trade through the Civil War,” said Sammet. “The traps were not manmade or mass produced. Many were made by the same 19th-century blacksmiths who made Kentucky rifles, hide scrapers, or other metal objects used by settlers. It’s the most extensive known collection of early, hand-signed traps.”

Strong interest has already been expressed in a Berdan Sharps Model 1859 described by Sammet as “one of the finest-condition Sharps ever discovered of the approximately 2,000 that were shipped to Berdan in 1862.” In extraordinary all-original condition, and retaining its original Civil War-era rifle case bearing the owner’s name, the gun is identified to James Baker of Wayne County, Ohio, who enlisted with the legendary Berdan Sharpshooters, 1st Regiment, Company K, at age 20. The consignor’s grandfather acquired the rifle from a neighbor who was a member of James Baker’s family. Estimate: $20,000-$30,000.

A Sharps Model 1878 rifle steeped in American firearms history belonged to Col. George W. Wingate, who served as the NRA’s first secretary and later (in 1886), its president. He is also noted for having fired the first shots at Creedmoor on April 25, 1873. Extensive documentation supports the gun’s ownership, and it comes with an American Legends medal display that features Wingate, plus Remington Library prints, and publications authored by Wingate, including an original 1873 edition of Manual For Rifle Practice. Estimate: $8,000-$12,000

The 1903 US Springfield 30-06 Presidents Match Trophy rifle awarded to USMC Gunnery Sgt. John Thomas is the fourth of only five that were made and one of only three whose whereabouts are known. Sgt. Thomas was the first Marine to win the prestigious shooting award. This superlative presentation rifle is offered together with 16 shooting medals and ribbons, booklets and ephemera. Estimate: $20,000-$30,000

The name “Cuno Helfricht” is synonymous with the ultimate in gun engraving, and Milestone’s January 30 auction includes a superb example of Helfricht artistry in the form of a Colt .45-caliber single-action presentation Army Revolver. It is one of four guns that were shipped on April 15, 1887 to Colt distributors Hartley & Graham, New York, and engraved by Helfricht or his shop. The custom engraving documents the gun’s presentation in 1892 to Jefferson Davis Kurtz, a former Confederate soldier and future sheriff of Volusia County, Florida, who was killed in line of duty in 1895. Estimate: $25,000-$35,000

Old West history comes to life in the form of two auction lots in particular. A Colt .36-caliber Model 1851 Navy revolver is attributed to the ferocious Old West outlaw Dave Rudabaugh, who consorted with Billy the Kid, Billy Wilson’s gang and other ruthless criminals, and feuded with the Earp brothers. Condemned to the hangman’s noose, Rudabaugh escaped jail but later ended up in gunfights and met a grisly end, as described in the auction catalog. His Colt is accompanied by letters and an original book about his life of crime. Estimate: $8,000-$12,000

Representing the other side of the law from that period, Milestone offers an 1860 Colt conversion .44 [Colt] caliber/.44 CF gun owned by and engraved with the name of Sheriff James Glispin. “He was the leader of the posse that killed Charlie Pitts and captured the Younger gang after their 1876 attempted bank robbery known as the Great Northfield Minnesota Raid,” Sammet explained. “It really should be displayed in the Gene Autry museum, with the likes of John Wesley Hardin’s gun.” Accompanied by a 1951 letter written by Glispin’s granddaughter, it comes to auction with a $15,000-$25,000 estimate.

A stellar firearm from the Gary Thomas collection, a rare Vietnam-captured Hungarian 91/30-M52 sniper rifle was made in 1953 and is one of the rarest of all Mosin-Nagant variations. It is one of only a handful of surviving guns of its type known to have originated from the Vietnam War. Estimate: $5,000-$7,000. Also from the Thomas collection, a 1959 East German Karabiner-S SKS rifle, one of approximately 35 known in the United States, could reach $6,000-$10,000.

In a league of its own, a Colt 1911 US Army .45ACP pistol, made in 1913, was the personal property of Maj. Gen. Julian Sommerville Hatcher, a noted firearms expert, author and technical editor of NRA’s American Rifleman magazine. General Hatcher used the weapon in both World War I and World War II. Its pre-sale estimate is $7,500-$10,000.

Last but not least, there’s the pistol so many contemporary firearms collectors are after: an extremely desirable first-year (1955) Colt Python .357 Magnum. With its original shipping box and factory letter confirming both the serial number 559 and its original recipient, Charlottesville (Va.) Hardware Co., it has an auction target of $20,000-$30,000.

Milestone’s Saturday Jan. 30, 2021 gallery auction will be held at 38198 Willoughby Parkway, Willoughby (suburban Cleveland), OH 44094. Start time: 10 a.m. ET. All forms of bidding will be available, including live via the Internet through Milestone Auctions’ bidding platform or LiveAuctioneers.

Need to Understand the Latest Nuances of CMMC/DFARS 7012 Compliance? Get Insider Guidance on “The Virtual CISO Podcast”

The Virtual CISO Podcast by Pivot Point Security

The Virtual CISO Podcast by Pivot Point Security

The DFARS interim rule that went into effect in 2020 introduces a number of changes to the US DoD compliance process.

HAMILTON, NJ, UNITED STATES, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — If your organization has a DFARS clause 252.204-7012 in your DoD contract, you may be wondering how the new DFARS interim rule affects you specifically. In particular, the interim rule requires defense industrial base (DIB) contractors and their subcontractors to self-score and submit to the government their level of compliance with the NIST 800-171 cybersecurity standard prior to contract award or renewal. But does that apply only to new contracts? Or will it also impact current contracts that include a DFARS 7012 clause (as the great majority do)? What might happen if your compliance score is less than impressive?

To get clarity on what the interim rule, the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program and other recent shifts in the DoD cyber compliance landscape mean for DIB firms, the latest episode of The Virtual CISO Podcast from Pivot Point Security features Corbin Evans, Principal Director, Strategic Programs at the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA), the leading trade association for defense contractors.

Topics discussed include:
● What DIB companies with a DFARS 7012 clause in their contracts need to do now based on the interim rule
● What does it mean for your business if you submit a low (or even negative) compliance score in the SPRS system?
● How does the type of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) involved in your contract impact your compliance requirements?

If your company has a current DoD contract and/or plans to compete for future defense contracts, this must-listen podcast offers expert guidance to help clarify goals and set priorities.

IPT Group acquires PRIMOVE E-mobility Wireless Charging technology portfolio

PRIMOVE

IPT Wireless power drives mobility

IPT PRIMOVE Z-Mover

PRIMOVE and IPT share a wealth of technology, market experience and installed base. IPT has an ambitious product development strategy.”

— Richard van den Dool

EFRINGEN-KIRCHEN, BADEN-WüRTTEMBERG, DUITSLAND, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — IPT Group, holding company of IPT Technology, one of the leading global manufacturers of wireless charging and electrification solutions applied in industrial and e-mobility applications, has acquired PRIMOVE, the e-mobility inductive charging technology portfolio from Bombardier.

With this acquisition, IPT combines two cleantech scale-ups in wireless power transfer for e-mobility benefiting from synergies, thereby accelerating IPT’s offering of a complete product portfolio to serve various markets.

“By acquiring PRIMOVE we’re complementing our existing IP and product portfolio and speed up our product-to-market plans,” says IPT’s management, Richard van den Dool and Victor Hoynck van Papendrecht. Both IPT Technology and PRIMOVE are global leaders in wireless charging technology and innovative pioneers with various pilots, prototypes and proofs of concept. Since its start in 2008, PRIMOVE has developed a strong patent portfolio for E-Mobility applications and delivered impressive innovations, achievements and technical knowhow. Next to bus applications, PRIMOVE has invested substantially in light-duty vehicle applications. IPT Technology has its roots in industrial wireless applications and has developed heavy-duty e-mobility solutions. By combining the technology and expertise of both companies, IPT is strengthening its market position and accelerating its business planning.

“PRIMOVE and IPT share a wealth of technology, market experience and installed base. IPT has an ambitious product development strategy”, says CEO/CCO Richard van den Dool. “Now the global energy transition and change-over to battery-driven vehicles are taking off; we need to accelerate our product development. Our focus will move from research, concept and prototype phase, to developing serial products.” Smart City, Smart Mobility, Industry 4.0, Autonomous Driving and other Megatrends are highly dependent on the availability of wireless electrification facilities. “Market demand for static and (semi)dynamic wireless charging applications will boost for all types of transport vehicles by rail, road or water. IPT is fully prepared for this, but we gain direct access to PRIMOVE’s IP, knowhow, and experience with this strategic takeover. That will save time and resources, that now can spend on new developments.”

“IPT Technology is ready to scale up its product development capacity,” according to CEO/COO Victor Hoynck van Papendrecht. “IPT has developed a solid base for further growth, and strongly believes in co-operation and partnerships to build the future. Accelerating and realising our ambitions require strategic and financial partners. With the acquisition of PRIMOVE, we strengthen our product portfolio while improving our proposition as a technology provider. PRIMOVE has always focused on light-duty cars (power range from 3-22kW) and heavy-duty applications (200kW). IPT’s focus has been on Industrial Mobility, making IPT the trusted partner for leading industrial companies to dynamic wireless empower their daily processes.”

With different markets and R&D approaches for light-duty charging solutions, both companies are complementary to each other. PRIMOVE has invested substantially in developing their Z-Move, an industrialised 3.6kW charging solution for the light-duty car market that includes an impressive metal detection and positioning system. Whereas PRIMOVE approached the car market top-down via OEM’s, IPT worked bottom-up by conducting selected pilots. The first pilot with Daimler started in 2012, followed by pilots with Porsche, Streetscooter (DHL) or EON. Currently, IPT is occupied in a Pan-European charging project driven by the EU (Horizon 2020 – User-Chi).

“We will finalise and complete the developments of PRIMOVE’s Z-Move and implement the first pilot in Barcelona at the end of 2021,” says IPT Management. Early 2021 IPT will also participate in an innovative project driven by the UK Government (OSRIC=On street Residential Inductive Charge) for which IPT has developed an underground charging solution. This allows 14 cars (different models) to be wirelessly charged overnight via the existing lamppost infrastructure keeping street clutter clean. IPT’s market experiences and pilot agenda combined with PRIMOVE technical leadership and advantages will be a great synergy.

The overlap between the two technologies is clearly on heavy-duty bus applications. IPT has been developing and installing wireless charging solutions (60-100kW) for buses since 2004. IPT’s first-generation charging solution was installed in Turin for 23 e-buses and still is in daily operation. IPT’s 3rd generation Charge Bus technology is used in different European cities, including London and Madrid. With this acquisition, PRIMOVE’s 200kW expertise and installed based in Berlin, Mannheim, Braunschweig or Bruges will be added to the IPT portfolio. Thereby all wireless charged busses across Europe come now from the same team!
Christian Köbel, Chief Technology Officer (CTO) at IPT says: “We will further optimise and combine both technologies and build a next-generation Bus Charge for depot and opportunity charging. But Bus will just be one of our focus segments. We also have an ambitious roadmap for static and dynamic wireless electrification, such as car, truck, ship, forklift, AGV/RGV or sorter line applications. With our roadmap, we will offer operators, owners and individuals an exciting range that facilitates their next step towards a wireless future.”

Terms of the deal are not disclosed.
