GlobalSim to Upgrade VALE Simulators and Continue Collaboration with Brazilian Company

VALE was visiting GlobalSim’s Headquarters in Sandy, Utah, to design and facilitate new engineering studies for the bucket wheel reclaimer simulator.

SANDY, UTAH, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — GlobalSim, Inc. has a long reputation in the field of simulation. Beyond crane simulators, GlobalSim has worked on projects with governments, defense contractors and multi-national corporations seeking custom solutions.

In 2012, GlobalSim was contracted by a Brazilian company, VALE, to create a customized bucket wheel reclaimer simulator. This project involved an extensive amount of software engineering and collaboration. The result was a full mission trainer that exceeded the expectations of VALE.

A few weeks ago, VALE was visiting GlobalSim’s Headquarters in Sandy, Utah, to design and facilitate new engineering studies for the bucket wheel reclaimer simulator. This requires an upgrade of certain features within the system based on changes in pile sizes, material densities, and reclaiming techniques. There will also be a modification to the arena to facilitate simulation for both Tubarao and Sao Luis mineral terminals.

“It’s very easy to make adjustments that might not have been seen in the beginning. GlobalSim has been so flexible in seeing our vision,” remarked Jose Silverio, bucket reclaiming expert at VALE. VALE is one of the world’s largest iron and ore producers – therefore, efficiency and productivity are of equal importance. “Before having simulators, we would have to train our operators on the actual machine which was a loss in productivity. Now, we train our operators on the simulators which has increased our productivity,” remarked Paulo Brandao, Project Manager at VALE.

GlobalSim’s Director of Product Management, Von Colborn and Lead Architect, Stanislav Borodai, combined have over 50 years of experience in software engineering and design. Colborn and Borodai have been working very closely with VALE since the beginning. “The benefit of our partnership is the quality – we have had this simulator operating flawlessly since the beginning (2012),” remarked Paulo.

GlobalSim anticipates to have this project completed within the next few months.

Good Earth Minerals®, LLC Supports Rebuild Crisis In U.S. And Caribbean

DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The devastation of people’s lives, homes and properties in the U.S. and the Caribbean in recent weeks has caused unprecedented hardship for U.S. citizens. It is estimated that 4 million family homes were affected with some level of damage and over 350,000 homes will need to be completely rebuilt.

One of the biggest limitations with FEMA and other organizations’ ability to rebuild is the availability of high-grade gypsum (selenite or calcium sulfate) used in wallboard. The Company owns one of the largest supplies of high-grade gypsum in the world and stands ready to help this immense restoration process. Highly-pure gypsum has become increasingly scarce due to its increased use in agriculture. As important as gypsum is to Denver-based Good Earth Minerals’ agricultural market, the Company is prepared to support the rebuild process. Therefore, effective immediately, Good Earth Minerals has instructed its subsidiary, EcoGEM, to divert a substantial portion of its gypsum from its agricultural market to the wallboard suppliers.

Don Bryant, EcoGEM’s Senior Advisor, stated, “Good Earth Minerals and EcoGEM are dedicated to working collaboratively to help improve the quality of life of those affected by these storms by providing the building industry with high-quality, toxin-free gypsum for its building supplies.”

Teams from companies in Houston show the impact of their wellness programs by training for and conquering a 3-course fitness challenge hosted by Fit Company.

HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, September 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — On September 16, 2017 participants from companies located in the Houston Texas area took part in the Fit Company Challenge, a corporate wellness event hosted by the Fit Company Institute. The challenge provided area companies an opportunity to come together as a team and spend a morning exercising, pushing their physical and mental limits and showing the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. Companies split their team into squads of 3 to 4 people who worked together to complete a variety of fitness stations to challenge their fitness level and earn points for their company. Teams chose what level to go through each course which allowed participants of all fitness levels to push their physical fitness without going too far out of their comfort zone.

For the 1st Fall Challenge in Houston PinnacleART took the top spot in the Large Division. From PinnacleART’s team captain Lindsay Carter, “The Fit Company Challenge was a physically and mentally demanding experience that highlighted new exercises that we as individuals can incorporate into our fit lifestyle. In our small teams, we were able to meet new people within the company and build camaraderie. Overall, it was a wonderful way to see the efforts of our Workplace Wellness committee come to life and make a real impact on our employees’ lifestyle and morale.”

In their 3rd year participating, Walker Elliott came out stronger then ever and took 1st place in the Small team division. From team captain Marianne Thai “Walker Elliott has participated in this event for the past 3 years, and every year we come back stronger and better prepared. We're up to 60% of employee participation who have trained and competed.

On event date, volunteers assisted the contenders through the courses from Texas State Department of Health and Human Performance, and RightFit Personal Training (www.rightfitpersonaltraining.com). Participants challenged their strength, conditioning, power, agility, and ended with a test of endurance to show their companies and colleagues that they practice what they preach.

Andy Warhol's famous image of Elizabeth Taylor will be part of Woodshed Art Auctions' online-only art sale, Oct. 4th

Mixed media painting on paper of Elizabeth Taylor, attributed to Andy Warhol.

Pen and brown ink drawing on laid paper by the Dutch master Vincent Van Gogh.

Gouache on paper attributed to Marc Chagall (1887-1985), titled Circus Acrobats.

Untitled abstract composition acrylic on canvas attributed to Mark Rothko (1903-1970).

Watercolor and ink drawing attributed to Pablo Picasso, titled Bullfight.

A mixed media painting on paper attributed to Andy Warhol (Am., 1928-1987) of Elizabeth Taylor will be one of 111 lots already online in the star-studded sale.

As the collection for this sale came together, I realized that some of our consignors are attracted to artists’ working studies.”

— Bruce Wood

FRANKLIN, MASS., UNITED STATES, September 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — FRANKLIN, Mass. – Mixed media paintings on paper attributed to Andy Warhol (Am., 1928-1987) of Elizabeth Taylor, John Lennon, George Harrison and several other subjects are part of Woodshed Art Auctions’ online-only Prestige Signature Collection, a 111-lot sale that’s already available for viewing and bidding (at www.woodshedartauctions.com). The sale ends Oct. 4th.

The Taylor, Lennon and Harrison works (as well as one of Mount Vesuvius) all carry pre-sale estimates of $80,000-$100,000, although the one of Liz is probably expected to finish ahead of the others because it’s so iconic and closely associated with Warhol. All four are signed by the artist and come with certificates of authenticity from Bonnier Art Services in Toulouse, France.

The Prestige Signature Collection sale features paintings, drawings and studies by some of the most famous, influential painters of the Impressionist, post-Impressionist, Modern and Pop Art movements. In addition to Warhol, the list includes names such as Basquiat, Monet, Van Gogh, Picasso, Chagall, Modigliani, Rothko, Sam Francis, Joan Mitchell, Fernand Leger and others.

The list continues with names like Helen Frankenthaler, Antoni Tapies, Wilfredo Lam, Franz Kline, Egon Schiele, Chaim Soutine, Suzy Frelinghysen, Ralph Mazzucco and even R. Crumb and Dr. Seuss, among others. Also in the sale is a fine selection of autographs by political figures like Adolf Hitler, Richard Nixon, Dwight Eisenhower, George Patton and Douglas MacArthur.

The artwork, though, will command center stage. “As the collection for this sale came together, I realized that some of our consignors are attracted to artists’ working studies,” said Bruce Wood, owner of Woodshed Art Auctions. “These paintings and drawings show the thought processes and working methods of the artists, methods that are often disguised in their finished artworks.”

Mr. Wood observed that the Warhol paintings on paper “show experimentation with color and brushwork, while the drawings and gouache studies of Van Gogh and Matisse show the speed and abbreviated details used to capture the impression of a fleeting moment.” Other Warhols in the sale include one of actor Dennis Hopper and two shoe studies (Warhol had a thing for shoes).

Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) needs no introduction. A nice group of works attributed to the Dutch Master will come up for bid. The expected top earner is a pen and brown ink drawing on laid paper, signed “Vincent” and titled Landscape with Haystacks. It may have been an early sketch for an 1889 oil painting with a similar title and is expected to bring $80,000-$100,000.

Two other Van Gogh attributions carry identical estimates of $60,000-$80,000. One is a tempera and gouache on bond paper titled Portrait Study of Madame Trabuc, also signed “Vincent” and possibly a sketch for a similarly titled portrait done in 1889. The other is an unframed brown ink on paper drawing titled Road with Houses signed by Van Gogh and possibly a preliminary study.

Two giants in the fine art world, both with ties to America as well as the Russian Federation, are Mark Rothko (1903-1970) and Marc Chagall (1887-1985). Both these men, in fact, were born in Russia, and Chagall ended up living in France. The gouache on paper attributed to Chagall in the auction is titled Circus Acrobats and is artist signed lower right. It should hit $50,000-$70,000.

The acrylic on primed cotton canvas attributed to Mark Rothko, an untitled abstract composition signed verso, could very well be the top lot of the auction. The sizable painting – 54 ¼ inches by 30 ½ inches, framed – has been attached to a new stretcher, partially obscuring the signature. But there’s nothing obscure about the painting or any doubting it’s a Rothko (est. $80,000-$120,000).

Another candidate for top earner is an oil on canvas painting attributed to the French and Russian artist Chaim Soutine (1893-1943), titled Expressionist Landscape with Women, artist signed and framed and possibly painted in Ceret, in southern France, in the 1920s. The work was reportedly confiscated by the Russian Government in the 1960s and has an estimate of $80,000-$120,000.

The watercolor and ink drawing attributed to Pablo Picasso (Sp./Fr., 1881-1973), titled Bullfight, is signed “Picasso” and dated “3/3/67” (est. $40,000-$60,000). The 6 ¼ inch by 8 inch drawing was left to its previous owner from a longtime friend around 1995, who presumably acquired it from his friend, the art critic, art dealer and collector Douglas Cooper sometime prior to 1980.

Works attributed to the French-American artists Joan Mitchell (1925-1992) and Fernand Leger (1881-1955) will be offered. Mitchell’s signed and framed oil on canvas painting titled Abstract Composition, should finish at $60,000-$80,000; while the watercolor and ink on paper attributed to Leger, signed, with a verso stamp from a Paris gallery, has an estimate of $30,000-$40,000.

Paintings attributed to the noted female American artists Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011) and Suzy Frelinghysen (1911-1988) both carry estimates of $40,000-$60,000 and both are abstract compositions. Frankenthaler’s is an oil on canvas work, signed and framed. Frelinghysen’s is a reverse-glass oil painting, signed verso and dated 1941, with Salander-O’Reilly Galleries (N.Y.).

Two other paintings also carry identical estimates, of $30,000-$40,000, and they’re from artists with international pedigree. One is an oil on canvas abstract composition attributed to Sam Francis (1923-1994), who lived and worked in the U.S., France and Japan. The mixed media work installed in a heavy wooden frame titled Vietnam Pastel I is signed by Raphael Mazzucco (b. 1970), who has spent time in New York, France, Italy and Holland. It is not an attribution.

It should be pointed out that many of the works in this auction – most of them, in fact – are listed as ‘attributed’ because they have a partial or missing provenance. Attributions and identifications are based in part on Woodshed Art Auctions’ careful study, but they are not guaranteed. Unless stated otherwise in the catalog description, no further provenance or information is available.

Woodshed Art Auctions is a family-owned art gallery specializing in oil painting restoration and live and online art auctions, celebrating its 50th anniversary. The firm is always accepting quality artworks for future auctions. To inquire about consigning a single piece or an entire collection, you may call Bruce Wood at 508-533-6277; or, e-mail him at bruce@woodshedartauctions.com.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit Partners with ELERTS to Launch DART Say Something

ELERTS

Mobile safety and security app improves public safety and uses crowdsourcing to support transit police

The DART Say Something app gives our riders a powerful tool to protect themselves and others, and enables riders to become an integral role in increased transit safety.”

— James D. Spiller, Chief of DART Police

WEYMOUTH, MA, USA, September 29, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) has partnered with ELERTS Corp, the leading provider of See Something Say Something mobile apps for transit agencies, to launch ‘DART Say Something,’ a mobile safety and security app that allows riders to quickly and discreetly report safety and security concerns directly to DART police. App users can submit incident reports with a photo, video, description of what is being reported, and the location of incident.

DART, servicing 67.2 million passenger trips in 2016, joins a growing a number of Transit agencies launching a transit-branded See Something Say Something app leveraging ELERTS technology. DART is embracing the growing trend of crowdsourcing to increase transit safety, reduce crime, and cut down on vandalism. The DART Say Something app enables transit police to have eyes and ears everywhere riders are, and therefore to gain situation awareness of active incidents observed by riders.
Features include:
• Under 20-second Incident Reporting – the app is designed to enable riders to submit reports quickly to police.
• Discreet Incident Reporting – to ensure discretion and safety for app users, the camera flash is automatically disabled when photos are taken through the app.
• Two-way communication – DART Police dispatchers may ask questions or provide instructions to the rider.
• BOLO Alerts – DART Police may broadcast BOLO's (Be On the Look Out) to ask riders to look for specific persons of interest such as criminal suspects or missing persons.

“The safety of our riders, employees and property is our top priority and we are always encouraging our riders to educate themselves about safety and security aboard transit vehicles. The DART Say Something app gives them a powerful tool to protect themselves and others, and enables riders to become an integral role in increased transit safety,” said James D. Spiller, Chief of DART Police. “In addition, the ability for my staff to receive immediate information as events unfold allows us to be more clearly informed and respond appropriately.”

DART has also enabled ELERTS Attention Engine technology, which can identify surveillance cameras nearby a reported incident – allowing dispatchers to immediately view what the cameras see. The result enables cameras to be used for real-time crime interception and enhanced situation awareness, versus simply storing video footage for after-the-incident forensic purposes.

“Transits like DART are taking great strides to increase not only the safety of their riders, but to arm their riders with a way to help alleviate crime before it happens,” said Ed English, ELERTS CEO. “ELERTS technology enables human-detection of a threat to provide authorities with real-time situation awareness and an immediate way to communicate with riders who report an incident.”
