Bestselling author Elizabeth Yang learns to live in the moment—without giving up future goals

New book reveals the joys and struggles of 18 Asian women entrepreneurs who traveled many different paths to create their best lives

USA, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — With her career in engineering under way as planned, Elizabeth Yang decided to enroll in law school just to understand the legal system better. “We all might end up in court someday,” she thought, “and it’s better to be prepared.” But when she got her law degree, she also got a job offer—from a prestigious global firm looking not just for a new lawyer, but a lawyer with an engineering background. Elizabeth was the perfect fit for the job.

And the job, at first, was the perfect fit for Elizabeth. That is, until she became a mom. She knew 80-hour weeks would mean someone else would be raising her two children. “I won’t even get to know them,” she thought. She had to make a change, so she took a leap of faith and launched her own small law firm. Now she sets her own hours. She can drive her children to their afternoon activities, have dinner with them, and get back to work after they go to sleep. “I realized it’s not about future goals, it’s about the present. Now my ‘why’ is just to enjoy the journey day by day, moment by moment.” Meanwhile, her future goals are still being realized as her Southern California law firm’s client list continues to grow, and she is able to expand her team of lawyers and nurture their careers.

Read much more about Elizabeth in the inspiring new book Asian Women Who Boss Up, by Tam Luc, the author, educator, and podcaster dedicated to helping women “boss up.” This collection of interviews with highly successful Asian women reveals how they have overcome obstacles and stereotypes, pushed past self-imposed limits, and defied expectations imposed on them by others, often their parents. This book is a master class of entrepreneurial advice and personal development guidance for any woman in search of role models who show that, yes, you can live the life of your dreams.

Gecko Robotics Adds Additional Advanced Ultrasonics Into Service Offering

rapid aut robotic inspection

Rapid AUT robots cover 5X as conventional AUT

Ed Bryner Gecko Robotics

Ed Bryner is Gecko’s Director of Engineering responsible for software and hardware R&D.

Building upon the adoption of Rapid Ultrasonic Gridding (RUG), Gecko has added Automated Ultrasonic Testing (AUT) and Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT).

HOUSTON, TX, USA, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Responding to increased market pull for comprehensive inspections, Gecko Robotics announced new Advanced Ultrasonic Inspection methods, inclusive of Phased Array Ultrasonic Testing (PAUT). Gecko’s Advanced Ultrasonic Inspections encompass several different techniques and technologies, which include phased array ultrasonic testing, Rapid AUT, time-of-flight diffraction (TOFD), and pulse-echo weld inspection. These techniques offer a new way for mechanical integrity professionals to partner with Gecko to address the full spectrum of damage mechanisms at any resolution, with the capability of distinguishing wall-thinning, coating loss, corrosion, pitting, weld cracking, hydrogen damage, and more.

“The technologies we use within our Advanced Ultrasonic Inspection family allows [Gecko’s] inspections to be 5x faster and capture 10x more data than conventional AUT methods.” says Jose Aparicio, Advanced NDT Technology Manager at Gecko Robotics “the capabilities alone allow our inspection teams to provide asset-health data at exceptional resolution. This quality of data used to be limited to small surface areas due to collection time and cost concerns; that is no longer the case with Gecko.”

Capabilities of Gecko’s Advanced Ultrasonic Inspections include:

Rapid AUT
Robot-enabled, Phased Array UT (PAUT)
Time-of-Flight Diffraction (TOFD)
Total Focusing Method (TFM)
Creeping/Head Wave Inspection Method (CHIME)
Short Range Guided Wave (SRUT)

As ultrasonic techniques advance, so does the amount of data that derives from these inspections. To address this challenge, Gecko has pioneered a cloud-based processing and visualization system for ultrasonic scan data, the Gecko Portal. Their Advanced Ultrasonic Inspection data is presented alongside the customer’s equipment inventory in a convenient plant-level hierarchy. Data presented can be filtered to find areas of interest, annotated, and shared with colleagues for maintenance planning.

“With the improvements in data quality and resolution that the advanced ultrasonic inspections enable through robotic technology, Gecko is also ensuring to make all of the acquired data more actionable, digestible, and reportable than ever before.” Ed Bryner, Director of Engineering at Gecko Robotics explains, “We are investing heavily in our cloud software and data analytics services that come as part of our service offerings to ensure a low friction, highly integrated solution to our customers' current data tools and workflows of today, and into the future.”

Advanced Ultrasonic Inspections are available to all existing and new Gecko clients for their inspection needs and RBI programs. For more information on AUI with Gecko, visit www.geckorobotics.com

About Gecko Robotics: Gecko Robotics pioneers robotic technology and software to enhance infrastructure integrity via comprehensive NDT inspections. Each year over $100B is spent to maintain the critical infrastructure that serves our world, inspections being a critical component. Using robots keeps workers away from hazardous environments and provides orders of magnitude better data coverage than traditional methods, especially in hard-to-reach areas. The data allows the owner to better diagnose equipment damage and predict future life. This results in better-targeted maintenance, lower costs, more up-time, and, most importantly, fewer deaths and injuries.

As US Secretary of State Blinken Call for Action on Sri Lanka – He was Asked to Help Refer to Int’l Criminal Court -ICC

US Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken

"A Civil Society Group from Sri Lanka have sent a letter to Secretary Blinken, urging him to help refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC)"

Current Zero draft Resolution on Sri Lanka tabled does not urge Sri Lanka to be Referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for past accountability for atrocity crimes committed.

— North-East Civil Society Forum

JAFFNA, SRI LANKA, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Secretary of State Blinken in his maiden speech to the UN Human Rights Council on February 24th, called on UN Human Rights Council member countries to support a Resolution on Sri Lanka.

" We encourage the Council to support resolutions at this session addressing issues of concern around the world, including ongoing human rights violations in Syria and North Korea, the lack of accountability for past atrocities in Sri Lanka, and the need for further investigation into the situation in South Sudan." said Secretary Blinken during his address to the Council.

A Civil Society Group from Sri Lanka have sent a letter to him, urging him to help refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

"We are writing to thank you for calling upon the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to support the Resolution on Sri Lanka for accountability for past atrocity crimes in that island." said the letter, written by North East Civil Society Forum.

"As you may be aware, the current Zero draft Resolution on Sri Lanka tabled by Core-Group on Sri Lanka does not urge Sri Lanka to be Referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for past accountability for atrocity crimes committed in Sri Lanka."

"We urge you to use your good offices to persuade Core-Group Countries consisting of the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Montenegro, and North Macedonia to include in the Zero draft to Refer Sri Lanka to International Criminal Court (ICC)."

"Due to the serious nature of the situation, Tamils unitedly sent a letter to the Core-Group on January 15, 2021, urging Sri Lanka to be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This call was validated by tens of thousands of Tamils in a recent rally called Pothuvil to Polikandy (P2P) which was organized by the North-East Civil Society." letter continued.

"Not referring Sri Lanka to ICC will not only open the doors for abusers of atrocity crimes to escape justice, but it will also embolden Sri Lankan political leaders and Security Force leaders to commit international atrocity crimes against Tamil people without any hesitation, knowing well that they will not have to face justice. We strongly urge you to seriously consider this risk Tamil people will face if Sri Lanka is not referred to International Criminal Court (ICC)." cautioned the letter.

"Furthermore, the current High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in her Report dated 27th January 2021 urged UN Human Rights Council Member States to take steps toward the referral of the situation in Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC)."

"Also, twenty former senior UN officials, including four former UN High commissioners of human rights, nine independent UN experts, and all members of the UN Secretary General’s Panel of Experts on Sri Lanka jointly issued a statement on February 18, 2021, titled “Sowing the Seeds of Conflict” has called on Sri Lanka to be Referred to International Criminal Court (ICC)."

BELOW, PLEASE FIND THE LETTER:

February 25, 2001

Antony J. Blinken
Secretary of State
United States of America

Dear Honourable Secretary of State,

We are writing to thank you for calling upon the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to support the Resolution on Sri Lanka for accountability for past atrocity crimes in that island.

As you may be aware, the current Zero draft Resolution on Sri Lanka tabled by Core-Group on Sri Lanka does not urge Sri Lanka to be Referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC) for past accountability for atrocity crimes committed in Sri Lanka.

We urge you to use your good offices to persuade Core-Group Countries consisting of the United Kingdom, Canada, Germany, Montenegro, and North Macedonia to include in the Zero draft to Refer Sri Lanka to International Criminal Court (ICC).

Due to the serious nature of the situation, Tamils unitedly sent a letter to the Core-Group on January 15, 2021, urging Sri Lanka to be referred to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This call was validated by tens of thousands of Tamils in a recent rally called Pothuvil to Polikandy (P2P) which was organized by the North-East Civil Society.

Not referring Sri Lanka to ICC will not only open the doors for abusers of atrocity crimes to escape justice, but it will also embolden Sri Lankan political leaders and Security Force leaders to commit international atrocity crimes against Tamil people without any hesitation, knowing well that they will not have to face justice. We strongly urge you to seriously consider this risk Tamil people will face if Sri Lanka is not referred to International Criminal Court (ICC).

Furthermore, the current High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet in her Report dated 27th January 2021 urged UN Human Rights Council Member States to take steps toward the referral of the situation in Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Also, twenty former senior UN officials, including four former UN High commissioners of human rights, nine independent UN experts, and all members of the UN Secretary General’s Panel of Experts on Sri Lanka jointly issued a statement on February 18, 2021, titled “Sowing the Seeds of Conflict” has called on Sri Lanka to be Referred to International Criminal Court (ICC).

“….the fact is that Sri Lanka has made its justice institutions unavailable to its own victims. We, therefore, echo the High Commissioner’s recommendations to work with victims and their representatives to pursue justice through universal or extraterritorial jurisdiction. Existing international avenues for accountability such as the International Criminal Court (ICC) should be considered” said the report.

SOME EXAMPLES OF INTERNATIONAL ATROCITY CRIMES COMMITTED AGAINST TAMIL PEOPLE BY THE SRI LANKAN STATE:

1) According to the March 2011 Report of the UN Secretary General’s Panel of Experts on Accountability in Sri Lanka stated that war crimes and crimes against humanity were committed during the final stages of the armed conflict and around 40,000 Tamil civilians were killed in the final six months of the war that ended in May 2009.

2) According to the November 2012 Report of the UN Secretary-General’s Internal Review Panel on UN Action in Sri Lanka, over seventy thousand (70,000) Tamils were unaccounted for during the final six months of the war that ended in May 2009.

3) Several were killed when Sri Lankan forces repeatedly bombed and shelled an area designated by the Government as No Fire Zones (Safe zones). Even hospitals and food distribution centers were bombed. Several also died of starvation and bled to death due to lack of medical treatment.

4) International Truth and Justice Project (ITJP) in February 2017 handed over details to UN of Sri Lankan Military run "Rape Camps", where Tamil women are being held as “sex slaves.”

5) According to UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office report on April 2013, there are over 90,000 Tamil war widows in Sri Lanka.

6) Thousands of Tamils disappeared including babies and children. UN Working Group on Enforced Disappearances stated that the second-highest number of enforced disappearance cases in the world is from Sri Lanka.

HISTORY OF FALSE PROMISES BY THE SRI LANKAN STATE ON ACCOUNTABILITY FOR INTERNATIONAL CRIMES:

We also would like to bring to your attention that successive Sri Lankan Governments have failed to implement any of the UNHRC Resolutions, including the ones they voluntarily co-sponsored.

The previous Government not only failed to take any meaningful steps to implement the Resolution that it co-sponsored, on the contrary, the President, Prime Minister and senior members of the Government have repeatedly and categorically stated that they will not implement the UNHRC Resolution.

The current new Government went one step further and officially withdrew from the co-sponsorship of the Resolutions 30/1, 34/1, and 40/1 and walked away from the UNHRC accountability process.

Furthermore, as a snub to UNHRC, the only soldier who was ever punished and sentenced to death for killing civilians including children were pardoned by the current President.

Also, several senior military officials who were credibly accused of committing war crimes have been given promotions and treated as “war heroes.” One officer who was named in UN reports as a suspected war criminal was promoted as a four-star General.

We would appreciate if you could urge Core-Group countries on Sri Lanka at the UN Human Rights Council to include referral to International Criminal Court (ICC) in their Zero draft Resolution.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

North East Civil Society Forum

Austin-based SocialTech.ai Receives First Grant

A purple, orange, and black logo of Unmudl that reads "Course-to-Jobs Marketplace"

Unmudl – The Course-to-Jobs Marketplace

Thrive Grant supports SocialTech.ai in launching Unmudl.com

Being named a recipient of a Travis County Thrive Grant is an incredible milestone for us here at SocialTech.ai”

— Dr. Parminder Jassal, CEO of SocialTech.ai

AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Contending with a worldwide pandemic certainly was not on Austin-based SocialTech.ai’s radar when they began designing their first public project in late 2019. As it became clear that COVID-19 would disrupt original plans, the SocialTech.ai team pivoted to optimize design, development, and communications to continue on plan while staying connected to key stakeholders. As members of SocialTech.ai’s team are located in multiple cities across the country, they were modelling a new future and building it at the same time.

While staying on the fast track for a late 2020 launch of the Unmudl.com Marketplace—an innovative online marketplace of job training, skills development, and certification courses from a proprietary network of community colleges—the pandemic created unforeseen challenges for SocialTech.ai as well as their community college partners. Notably, community colleges in the Unmudl network found themselves needing to adjust almost all of their standard operations including adapting to completely virtual platforms and reconfiguring internal and external protocols to meet health and safety requirements.

So, when Travis County (TX) announced they were accepting applications from local businesses for their Travis County Thrive Grant program, SocialTech.ai CEO Dr. Parminder Jassal and her team jumped at the opportunity to compete. In September, they learned that SocialTech.ai was among the 225 businesses (from over 1,000 interested companies) selected to receive a Thrive Business Grant. The funding from the Thrive Grant invests in SocialTech.ai’s scaling efforts to reach more employers and working learners.

The Thrive program was administered by economic development nonprofit organization Business and Community Lenders (BCL) of Texas. Through the Travis County Thrive program, BLC provided 225 small businesses with a total of $9 million in funding, as well as one-on-one business continuity coaching with trained small business experts. BCL of Texas CEO Rosa Rios Valdez said, “BCL was founded during a recession to help small businesses. We’re here today to help strengthen small business during this challenging time. We know how important it is to get funding into the hands of small business owners so that they can stay strong and keep their doors open.”

“Being named a recipient of a Travis County Thrive Grant is an incredible milestone for us here at SocialTech.ai,” noted Dr. Jassal. “It’s the first grant we’ve received at SocialTech.ai, and we are especially honored that our hometown has confidence and belief in the work we’re doing. I couldn’t be more grateful for their support, especially being a woman-owned, minority-owned, and military-spouse-owned business, the competition is a bit more difficult among funders. ”

The SocialTech.ai team achieved their first major milestone for Unmudl.com in November 2020 — opening the marketplace to the public on schedule. Unmudl is now gaining visibility and involvement from working learners, employers, community colleges, and strategic partners. “As a result of the Travis County Thrive Grant,” Dr. Jassal shared, “SocialTech.ai has been able to continue advancing their mission of helping America’s community colleges become the life-long choice for working learners and businesses domestically and internationally.”

Unmudl.com currently offers more than 250 courses from an expanding coast-to-coast network of seven partner community colleges: Bellevue College (https://unmudl.com/colleges/bellevue-college-66); Central New Mexico Community College (https://unmudl.cnm.edu); GateWay Community College (https://unmudl.gatewaycc.edu); Pima Community College (https://unmudl.com/colleges/pima-community-college-67); San Diego Continuing Education (https://unmudl.com/colleges/san-diego-continuing-education-79); San Juan College (https://unmudl.com/colleges/san-juan-college-49); and SUNY Broome (https://unmudl.com/colleges/suny-broome-78?view=courses).

Roberto d’Aubuisson: “La Importancia De No Quedarse En Casa”

“El ausentismo en las elecciones presidenciales, de 2019, causaron la victoria de Nayib Bukele”- afirma Santa Tecla Información

SANTA TECLA, LA LIBERTAD, EL SALVADOR, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — “El ausentismo en las elecciones presidenciales, de 2019, causaron la victoria de Nayib Bukele”- afirma Santa Tecla Información

SANTA TECLA, SV – Ejercer derecho al voto, es un compromiso que los habitantes tienen con Santa Tecla, el Covid-19, no es un impedimento para salir y cumplir con este compromiso cívico. En la historia democrática de El Salvador, en el año 2019 el ausentismo fue protagonista, pues alcanzaron su mayor nivel.

Los datos según Santa Tecla Información, fueron superiores al 50% del padrón electoral. Una cifra histórica la cual benefició a Nayib Bukele. Solamente 2.733.178 personas fueron a votar. El ausentismo rondó arriba del 50%. Bukele fue Presidente, con apenas el 25% de los votos del padrón electoral. Es de vital importancia alcanzar la suficiente conciencia con la democracia, dar ejemplo a los jóvenes, dejarles claro que el futuro de Santa Tecla, en su mayoría, depende de ellos.

Roberto, actual alcalde y candidato, ha evidenciado un apoyo rotundo a ejercer este derecho, el cual se convierte en un deber de la ciudadanía, y que, además, lo ha dejado evidenciado en cada una de sus campañas. Roberto no sólo se basa en sus tres pilares: HidroTecla, Escudo Tecla o el parqueo, más que propuestas municipales para la alcaldía, son compromisos que tiene como tecleño.

Es por eso que, evidencia gran empatía con el derecho al voto; el candidato no piensa como alcalde, sino como ciudadano, del que se siente orgulloso, y, sobre todo, del que espera dar lo que mejor de sí.

“Me siento comprometido con mi ciudad Santa Tecla, anhelo que sea el ejemplo del Salvador” Roberto d’Aubuisson.

Fort Mose Historic State Park celebrates Black History Month with launch of Flight to Freedom Trail initiative

Interactive, educational signage will bring trail to life

Fort Mose is an incredible example of the history that lives in Florida’s state parks. ”

— Shawn Hamilton, DEP Deputy Secretary

TALLAHASSEE, FL, UNITED STATES, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In celebration of Black History Month, Fort Mose Historic State Park has partnered with Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) and The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida to launch a self-guided educational tour experience along the Flight to Freedom Trail, bringing to life the rich history of the park year-round.

The initiative was announced today at Fort Mose by Gil Ziffer, President of the Florida State Parks Foundation. “It is very fitting that this new self-guided tour in this historic park is being announced during Black History Month,” he said. “The Foundation is proud to be a part of this important initiative – bringing to life the story of Fort Mose.”

“We thank Florida Power and Light and The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida who are proud supporters of the Flight to Freedom trail initiative and the significance it will have for generations to come,” he added.

“We are delighted to invest in making the Flight to Freedom Trail even more compelling with these enhancements,” noted Nina Waters, president, The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. “By building on the work already done by Fort Mose’s leadership and volunteers, we can further educate our community about the rich history of African American individuals in St. Augustine.”

“FPL joins The Community Foundation as a proud supporter of the Flight to Freedom trail initiative and the significance it will have for generations to come,” said Jim Bush, area external affairs manager at Florida Power & Light Company (FPL). “We’re passionate about supporting the initiatives our communities care about the most- and this historic park is a shining example of that. This is one of the many ways that FPL works with the communities it serves to help make Florida an even better place to live, work and raise a family.”

Fort Mose Historic State Park is the site of the first free black community in what is now the United States and can date its roots back to 1687. It is a National Historic Landmark and a UNESCO Slave Route Project and is on the National Register for Historic Places and the Florida African American History Trail.

“Fort Mose is an incredible example of the history that lives in Florida’s state parks,” said Shawn Hamilton, DEP Deputy Secretary for Land and Recreation. “More than 300 years ago, Fort Mose served as a beacon of hope for enslaved people in what would become the United States. We’re excited and honored to have a new tour experience that will help visitors make meaningful connections with the people who traveled to, settled and lived there.”

Fort Mose hosts an annual three-day Flight to Freedom event for over 2,000 students and the public, where reenactors set up stations along the trail. They tell the story of what it was like for the escaped slaves to make the treacherous journey from the Carolinas to this free settlement. New, interactive educational signage along the ¾-mile trail will allow this reenactment and history to be experienced all year long. The signs will include QR codes for visitors to scan, launching videos of the reenactors telling their story.

'We launched the Flight to Freedom reenactment in 2009,” said Charles Ellis, President of Fort Mose Historical Society. “Since that time, thousands of park visitors of all ages have stepped onto the Trail, encountering freedom seekers, slave catchers, a Yamasee chief, and helpful friars and guides. Now, thanks to this generous donation, we will be able to offer this unique 'living history' experience to park visitors at all times.”

The Florida State Parks Foundation, founded in 1993 as Friends of Florida State Parks and renamed in 2018, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation whose mission is to support and help sustain the Florida Park Service, its 175 award-winning parks and trails, local Friends groups and more than 20,000 park volunteers.

It does this through programs that preserve and protect state parks, educate visitors about the value of state parks, encourage community engagement and active use of state parks, and advocacy. The volunteer Board of Directors represents private and public sectors as well as local and statewide interests.

CHAMPLAIN, NY, USA, February 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —

NEW ENGLAND 800 COMPANY APPOINTS, FERDINAND (DARRYL) OF BEST PHONE NUMBERS AS THEY SEE MORE DEMAND FOR VANITY NUMBERS SINCE COVID.

The 2 most powerful words used over 2 Billion times a day are CALL-NOW and the famous duo has now made the 800-CALL-NOW™.com Portfolio* available Worldwide. Other vanities were released but none like CALL-NOW and its complete corporate portfolio.

Vanity Phone Numbers are sought out by knowledgeable marketers who understand the long-term impact of how advertising works. These numbers translate into sales that add credibility and value to an advertiser. Services now include texting, social media integration, as well as live agents, so consumers can instantly create a relationship between themselves and the brand. With multiple ways to engage an audience, the original social media product is still the best, THE TELEPHONE, and it’s still the number one way for prospects and clients to engage quickly and effectively. Engaged Companies understand how and why to use real humans to answer the phone. Companies spend millions of dollars on thirty-second commercials pitched on mainstream Television, Online, and on Hand-Held devices. Every company is looking for maximum return.

The pressure is placed on advertising agencies to create a memory retention factor, somehow extending the Period-Of-Impact for every impression made. A fifteen or thirty-second commercial may have sufficient impact to increase sales over short periods, but if the audience can’t remember a contact phone number or a way to text or visit an advertiser then the entire campaign can be an economic waste of money. Just imagine the memorable value when an audience can reach an advertiser by calling, texting, or visiting a single unforgettable number/domain combination – one they saw or heard a week or more ago. And imagine the resulting referrals and conversations that will be built around every one of these impressions.

Ferdinand said, “This gesture and union between these two Companies yields results and instant recognition to help heavy-hitters excel. A single, easy to remember, domain and number will spark an instant memory recall and connection between the Brand and their many publics.” Entire corporate portfolios such as the 800-CALL-NOW.com Portfolio are rare and only the tip of the iceberg for this dynamic duo. The Ferdinand-Tartamella duo continues to focus on helping Corporations with branding and prefers a low-profile approach to increasing sales.
