— Maine Mesothelioma Victims Center

BANGOR , MAINE, USA, October 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Maine Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "If your loved one is a Navy Veteran or former shipyard worker in Maine and he has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 for some honesty and clarity about how the mesothelioma compensation process works. Erik Karst is one of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys and he knows what he is talking about. Frequently mesothelioma compensation for a Navy Veteran or a shipyard worker might be worth well over a million dollars.

The typical person with mesothelioma is 72 years old and by the time they get diagnosed they are very sick. If this sounds like your husband or dad in Maine-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. He will deliver the best possible compensation results for you or your family member." www.karstvonoiste.com/

Justin Belill Discusses Growing Mental Health Concerns Among the Nation's Military Veterans

Justin Belill on Growing Mental Health Concerns Among the Nation's Military Veterans

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES , October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Countless Military Veterans Are Suffering from PTSD and Justin Belill is Here to Discuss This Growing Concern Facing the United States Military and Healthcare Systems

During the past few years, there has been a growing shift in the way that the country has addressed mental health issues. In the past, there was a stigma that surrounded mental health issues. Now, the country has come a long way since General Patton trapped to slap the fear out of a soldier. With access to more mental health resources, people are now able to get the treatment that they deserve; however, there is still a severe lack of mental health resources, particularly for this nation's veterans. Justin Belill is here to discuss this major issue and how it can be addressed.

Justin Belill Discusses the Reasons Why the Military's Soldiers Develop Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

For those who might not know, PTSD is a serious condition that develops when someone has been exposed to traumatic events. Justin Belill wants people to try to envision what happens on the field of battle. Between people getting shot, bombs going off, and planes flying overhead, it is easy to see how someone might develop PTSD in this situation. Justin Belill wants to make sure that everyone understands that PTSD is not a sign of weakness but it is a sign of being human.

Justin Belill Discusses the Signs and Symptoms of PTSD

According to Justin Belill, there are several signs and symptoms that might develop in individuals who have PTSD. One of the hallmark symptoms is that people will develop flashbacks to the event. According to Justin Belill, some of the other symptoms that people might develop include emotional lability, changes in appetite, difficulty sleeping, and strained personal relationships. When someone develops these symptoms, they need to be able to seek help from trained professionals as quickly as possible. Sadly, this is not always available to soldiers who require this type of care.

Justin Belill Discusses How These Issues Can Be Addressed

Obviously, PTSD is a major issue when it comes to the nation's military. In order to address the numerous issues that face the nation's military when it comes to mental health issues, there are several steps that must be taken. First, it is important to educate the nation's military leaders on PTSD and the signs and symptoms that soldiers might be suffering from this serious condition. Second, Justin Belill knows that it is important to make sure that mental health resources are made available to those who suffer from this serious condition. Finally, Justin Belill also wants to educate the public as well of this serious issue that is facing the nation's soldiers to place more pressure on the government to do something to address this issue.

Top Tech Company in Charleston, SC. Accelerates Growth with New Office and Creative, Innovative Workspaces

Inspiring, open-concept workspace.

Charleston Office

Iconic, uninterrupted views.

TIAG Technology that Transforms

TIAG is delighted to be one of the newest change-agent partners within the region’s thriving, collaborative information technology cluster.

Office design was focused on creating an employee and customer friendly environment that was both productive and visually striking.

It was very important to us to make sure everyone has unobstructed views looking out on to the water and the space was inviting, innovative, and a place employees and clients want to be.”

— Erick Iverson, TIAG General Manager

CHARLESTON, SC, USA, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When TIAG—an innovative technology company providing transformational solutions to private industry and across the Department of Defense—sought a new Charleston, SC location to accommodate its growing presence in that region, they were intentional and purposeful about creating a progressive, fun, and innovative atmosphere for both employees and customers.

“Every time we’ve expanded, it’s been with an employee-first mindset. Every decision made was thoughtful and intentional and we asked ourselves, how do we make this awesome for our people? We did this because our employees make every day awesome for our customers. Our focus was to build an environment that truly empowered, engaged, and inspired employees and customers,” shares Neil Lampton, President and Chief Operation Officer of TIAG.

Highlights from the employee-focused design include an interactive and flexible seating layout, collaborative team gathering/design areas, and several lounge spaces and nooks to provide an immersive environment with a variety of seating types and unobstructed views of the iconic Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. Two private phone booth rooms were also incorporated so employees could have private meetings, quiet collaboration, or simply an area for focused flow.

“This was an opportunity to align our environment to our culture and values. As an innovation company; creativity, connection, and design are inherent in everything we do. We wanted the space itself to be a creative outlet, bring the diversity of our team together, and spark innovation,” shares Umang Modi, Managing Principal and Chief Strategy Officer of TIAG.

Using experience and feedback collected from a combined 40+ years working in corporate environments, TIAG leaders and Charleston-locals Erick Iverson and Brian Sheets, designed the office from the studs to the finishing touches with a singular focus on forming an employee and customer friendly environment that was both productive and visually striking. Using the backdrop of Charleston’s outdoor beauty and a variety of natural outdoor elements and finishes; the space was designed to provide universal access to scenic views, with quiet nooks and spaces where employees, customers, and visitors to the office can work in a way that positively impacts their mental health and well-being.

“We looked at 30 different office locations and circled back to the first one. It was just raw construction and high beams, but the location was striking and gave us the layout to build a flexible work environment within the building. We picked every finish, the design layout, and where we put offices and conference rooms,” shares General Manager, Erick Iverson, “It was very important to us to make sure everyone has unobstructed views looking out on to the water, so we designed the environment around the windows and created a completely open workspace with low top, adjustable tables. The desks are moveable and flex so that we can change the teams as the programs change. We didn’t want people to feel stuck. In fact, we wanted everyone to have the flexibility to enhance their space and use their discretion to move at any time.”

“As an innovation and people-centric company, we believe that everyone works better, collaborates better, and feels better when they are in well-designed workspaces,” shares TIAG’s Director of Business Development and Growth, Brian Sheets, “Happy employees are extremely important for the survival and performance of any organization—and a large part of our company success is building an environment that allows our employees to feel more relaxed and less stressed, thus helping them further engage in their jobs with an entrepreneurial approach and creative response to our customer’s needs.”

The new Charleston location brings TIAG closer to new and existing clients in the region and will increase their efforts to further expand staffing and capabilities in services across Health IT, Business Intelligence, Data Analytics, Data Modeling, Health Registries Management, Cybersecurity, System Validation, Information Assurance, and Software Development and Testing.

"The Advocate has endorsed the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste to ensure a Navy Veteran with lung cancer in Arizona gets what may be significant compensation-if they had asbestos exposure.”

— Arizona US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate

PHOENIX , ARIZONA , USA, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Arizona US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate has endorsed the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste to ensure a Navy Veteran with lung cancer anywhere in Arizona gets what might be significant financial compensation-if they had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the financial compensation claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person the Advocate is attempting to identify is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure tool place in prior to 1982. For more information please call the lawyers at Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Advocate says, "Because of the Coronavirus many Navy Veterans with lung cancer-and who had heavy exposure to asbestos in the service will not pursue compensation. For this reason, we are appealing to their wife or adult son-daughter to please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303. The compensation process is not complicated, the lawyers do almost all of the work-and this is worth your time-if this sounds like you or your loved one." www.karstvonoiste.com/

Individuals in the state of Arizona could have been exposed to asbestos while working at a power plant, at an industrial facility, at a steel mill, at an automobile manufacturing facility, at a chemical plant, as a plumber, a boiler technician, as an auto repairman, as an electrician, or in the construction industry. In most cases, the exposure to asbestos caused mesothelioma at one of these types of workplaces and the exposure took place in the 1950′s, 1960′s, 1970′s, or 1980′s. Mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer typically takes three to five decades to appear. https://Arizona.USNavyLungCancer.Com

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303.

Stronger Together: NAVSO and Combined Arms Joining Forces

Introducing NAVSO as the Combined Arms Institute

ARLINGTON, VA, USA , October 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Association of Veteran-Serving Organizations (NAVSO), based in Arlington, Virginia, and Combined Arms, based in Houston, Texas, announced today they are joining forces. NAVSO’s programs, serving the nationwide military and veteran nonprofit community, will re-launch as the Combined Arms Institute, an expansive initiative within the Combined Arms portfolio.

NAVSO launched in early 2015 to maximize the impact of the veteran-serving community. Over its five-plus years, NAVSO has lived its trademarked mantra You Serve Them – We Serve You™ by providing fund development tools, professional and organizational development resources, cutting-edge human-centered design summits on topics ranging from veteran employment to disrupting the suicide prevention model, and highlighting the nation’s high-impact military community nonprofits (VSOs) through partnerships including the Military Influencer Conference and Joe Walsh’s VetsAid concerts. It’s now time for NAVSO to continue this mission — Stronger Together — aligned with one of the nation’s leading collective impact organizations at Combined Arms.

“Combined Arms personifies impactful service to veterans and their families, and is built from the ground up with growth and greater impact in mind,” said Tim Farrell, NAVSO President and CEO. “My duty to help the nation’s VSOs resource themselves and serve more effectively will be best served for the long term with this impactful partnership formalized moving forward, and I couldn’t be prouder.”

Founded in 2015, Combined Arms is a dynamic, ever-evolving collaborative impact organization employing an innovative combination of technology and service delivery to disrupt the veteran transition experience. By providing a holistic online assessment that efficiently connects veterans to member organizations, Combined Arms is accelerating veteran transition in order to deliver maximum impact at the community level. Combined Arms has expanded from its Houston roots to serve thousands of veteran families across Texas and in select nationwide markets. Launching the NAVSO mission as the new Combined Arms Institute will accelerate Combined Arms’ nationwide impact on veterans, currently serving military members, and the nonprofits that serve them and their families.

“NAVSO has been an extraordinary partner to Combined Arms since our inception, and we’ve exchanged so many ideas spanning local areas, regional and statewide initiatives, and nationwide innovations,” said John Boerstler, CEO of Combined Arms. “I’m grateful to both organizations’ staff and boards of directors for crafting this solution and making us Stronger Together for the benefit of the military community and the nonprofits who serve them.”

NAVSO’s programs and services will remain for the near term on the NAVSO website at www.navso.org, with migration of these resources to the Combined Arms Institute site over the next few months. More information about the new Combined Arms Institute can be found at www.combinedarms.us/institute.

D911 Inc Delivers a Mobile Application to Help E911 Operations During Disasters

disaster response, d911, FEMA, USDRR

Professional Disaster Response

D911 Inc has developed a mobile application that helps E911 operators and Emergency Managers gain better intelligence from the disaster theater.

The expertise that the military and civilian professionals bring to this application is exceptional. Their contributions have helped turn a complicated problem into a simple, intuitive solution.”

— Daniel Francis, App Designer

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, October 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Disasters of all types create a demand on resources that exceeds their immediate ability to respond. Post event operations can become difficult as incoming relief efforts compete with one another, and local resources, for opportunities to be helpful. In the midst of a disaster, there can be a moment of confusion and an overwhelmed system, handling the help requests that come into EOC's by way of the local E911 operations. In addition to this are the NGO's (Non Governmental Organizations) and GRIT's (Grass Roots Independent Teams) that enter the area to be helpful. How can Emergency Managers begin to get control and monitor all of this activity? Perhaps this will help. The D911 Mobile App.

The D911 Mobile Application provides emergency managers with technology to offshore non emergency help requests and damage reports to the D911 operations center that is in place to manage those requests. D911 works by matching requests to local and immigrating relief efforts in real time. Emergency Managers can see what type of requests are coming in, which NGO's and GRIT's may be responding to help, and coordinate their local resources with this activity to reduce redundant responses, freeing local emergency resources to focus on life and property threats as opposed to the typical relief efforts that are common to most disaster scenarios.

D911 manages relief agencies and independent operators in theater. Relief agencies registered in the app will receive notifications of help requests from survivors who make a request in app for assistance. The information gathered by the app includes the name, phone number and exact location of the device being used to make the request along with a brief description of the needs for that request.

D911 Inc. is a non-profit organization that developed this application. D911 expects to begin operations in summer 2021. "The organization is privately funded" says Daniel Francis, a former EMT, independent disaster responder and the applications designer. "We are hoping to have a significant impact on the way this information is managed and communicated between all involved with a disaster response response."

Francis says that he has consulted with retired US Coast Guard, UPS Logistics and Retired U.S. Special Forces officers to help design the app. "The expertise that the military and civilian professionals bring to this application is exceptional. Their contributions have helped turn a complicated problem into a simple, intuitive solution."

D911 operates like and E911 center, only the information and access is through a mobile application. The D911 operations center fields the requests and monitors activity. Active Emergency Operation Centers can see their areas activity and make requests of the resources as well. Daniel Francis says "There can be a dozen or more NGO Command Posts in a disaster theater, this app consolidates them into a single, real time interface."

The plan is to begin operations with local EOC's, expanding their reach and increasing the speed of response to their communities.

"The app is ready to be deployed" Says Francis, D911 wants the opportunity to show you how it can make a big difference".

Interested emergency managers can schedule a briefing on D911 on the D911.org website.

COLUMBUS, OH, USA, October 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Converge Ventures, an accelerator and startup incubator based in suburban Columbus, Ohio that commercializes academic research and development, on September 30 deployed a $500,000 investment into Ubihere, a company that develops innovative real-time location systems (RTLS), which enable accurate, to-the-second inventory tracking and management in a wide variety of environments and conditions. The company was founded by Dr. Alper Yilmaz, a professor of geoinformatics at The Ohio State University, where he is also the head of the university’s Laboratory for Photogrammetric Computer Vision. The Converge Ventures investment will support Ubihere’s execution of a recently awarded contract from the Air Force’s SBIR program.

“Ubihere is a great example of the innovation that is being pioneered in Ohio, and we are proud of Converge Ventures’ early investment in this groundbreaking company,” says Michael Minihan, board member of Converge Ventures. “Ubihere’s success is in sprint mode now, with the Air Force Phase II SBIR contract now working towards implementation in 2021.”

Ubihere’s core technology uses proprietary multi-sensor hardware tracking tags and artificially intelligent software to pinpoint a given object’s movement and position in real time and with a much superior degree of accuracy compared to legacy real-time location systems. As Ubihere’s first military customer, the US Air Force’s 7th Bomb Wing, located at Dyess Air Force Base outside of Abilene, Texas, is adopting the company’s Ubitrax commercial product to keep track of nearly 1,000 pieces of equipment across a 6,409-acre base. Upon successful completion of the Phase II SBIR project, the Air Force has indicated a desire to purchase the system for six additional bases in 2021.

“The Ubihere team has taken great strides in meeting development milestones to position us to deliver our Ubitrax tag solution to Dyess Air Force Base in 2021. The capital from Converge Ventures will help us achieve these goals,” says Dr. Yilmaz. “At the same time, we are continuing to strengthen relations with the government and other key industry stakeholders, paving the way to strong returns and success moving forward.”

Before launching Ubihere, Dr. Yilmaz had worked for the US Department of Defense, Department of Energy, and NASA on several projects to locate people and analyze data in GPS-impermeable environments such as remote, mountainous terrain; and in extraterrestrial environments such as on Mars. Dr. Yilmaz is a senior member of the US National Academy of Inventors and has been published in or cited by academic journals more than 10,000 times.

Ubihere is just one of the success stories to come out of Converge Ventures. Converge Ventures’ unique model combines the latest R&D to come out of university research laboratories with the power of public-private partnerships to fund and commercialize groundbreaking technology that might not otherwise have seen the light of day. Converge Ventures has particular expertise in connecting leading-edge research with sources of non-dilutive capital; funding outlets that expand a startup’s coffers for development without reducing the founders’ equity and control of the company.

In effect, Converge Ventures helps close a virtuous circle for research — in Columbus and beyond.

“Startups coming from Ohio State often have a strong proof-of-concept and basic research funding,” says Cheryl Turnbull, senior director of the Keenan Center for Entrepreneurship at Ohio State. “While the university Board of Trustees committed $100 million to invest in a series of central Ohio-based funds to support these startups—we also encourage our startups to pursue non-dilutive funding sources and other outside investment to help take these technologies to market where they can have an impact on society.”

This round of funding for Ubihere is only the latest this year: Earlier in 2020, Ubihere received an $875,000 contract from the Air Force in connection to its work at Dyess AFB, in addition to venture capital and non-dilutive funds raised from Columbus-based Rev1 Ventures.

“Rev1 is pleased to see this startup gaining traction. We are delighted to provide continuing support for Ubihere and the great team they’ve built,” says Dave Bergeron, senior vice president, venture acceleration and development, Rev1 Ventures.
