186 Wheelchair Carts for 3 Counties

first_imgOfficials of the Florence A. Tolbert and The Disabled Advocates Incorporated: Sam Dean, George Morris, deputy for admin, and Diarran Appleton, operations.–Disabled group to celebrate 10th anniversary; wants support to distribute wheel chairsTo celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Florence A. Tolbert & The Disabled Advocates Incorporated will reach out to disabled Liberians in three southeastern counties with 186 appropriate wheelchair carts, according to its executive director, Sam Dean.The three counties are: Sinoe, Grand Kru, and Grand Gedeh.The wheelchairs were donated by Mobility Worldwide, a United States international charity enterprise that builds specialized wheelchair carts for those living in the developing world and distributes at no cost to provide the gift of mobility to disabled children and adults worldwide.Also available for distribution are 24 cartons of books on various subjects.To reach the beneficiaries in the targeted counties, according to Sam Dean, his outfit does not have funds or a vehicle to transport them, and is therefore asking for financial and material assistance to get the wheelchair carts to those in need in the three targeted counties.He said challenges facing disabled Liberians should not be ignored by the incoming government, as it was in past governments. He appealed to the incoming administration of President-elect George Weah to make support to the disabled a priority.“This will be possible if the government’s social welfare system is strengthened with those who are passionate about easing the challenges facing disabled Liberians,” Dean said.He noted that the incoming administration should endeavor to make the disabled community more useful because they are part of the Liberian community, although they do not receive any support from any source for their upkeep.Dean added that because of uncertainties in life, anyone can become a disabled person and therefore those who are disabled should be helped to contribute to society and live fulfilled lives.He said to ensure that the wheelchair carts and books get to those targeted in the three counties, he is appealing to Liberians and humanitarian organizations to contact his group (0886-142-991 or 0777-916-865) for further discussion on the matter.Meanwhile, he said the administration of the Liberia Telecommunications Corporation (LIBTELCO) has furnished a computer laboratory with internet access to the community, for which they are grateful.The Florence A. Tolbert & Disabled Advocates Incorporated was established in 2008 to support and secure support for disabled Liberians throughout the country.Mobility Worldwide that provided the initial 186 wheelchair carts first began as P.E.T. PET is an acronym for the Personal Energy Transportation vehicle that the group constructs and distributes at no cost to provide the gift of mobility to disabled children and adults worldwide.The carts are built at one of its 21 production facilities located throughout the United States and Zambia, East Africa. They are then donated to distribution partners who handle the shipping, importation, and assessment of beneficiaries.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img28th November 2011Looking out the window this morning the weather is enough to make anyone crank up the fire and stay indoors with a large hot mug of tea!What about our four-legged friends? They love being out in this weather.. love splashing in puddles (the dirtier the better) and smelling the new smells that rain brings to the surface. There’s nothing more satisfying than to see the dogs racing about in the rain… think about it! We love being in a shower, refreshing ourselves and so do the dogs in the rain. Take them out and watch them enjoy life as dogs should!At home here we have a “dog towel” pile which we use to dry them off after being out getting wet and dirty! They love being dried too as this gets the blood flowing and warms them up too. Plus they also enjoy the closeness of owner and dog.Obviously there are products on the market you can use to help prevent a wet dog such as waterproof jackets which do help combat the wet and wet-dog smell syndrome but not all dogs need them. Some dogs such as German Shepherds are double coated and therefore, do not need a coat but if you feel you want to prevent too much wetness, opt for a light waterproof coat and make sure it is fitted well and not too tight to run in.Little dogs such as Jack Russells and Westies or Miniature Schnauzers would definitely benefit from a coat which is waterproof and warm. All dogs with little body fat such as Greyhounds must always  some kind of waterproof fleeced lined coat as they lose heat very quickly. There are also jumpers which can be purchased for these dogs to wear indoors to retain heat in the cold snap of winter. For any advice on coats for your dogs, visit your local pet store or call me and I will try to help recommend the right winter wear for your dogs or check out who even personalised all dog equipment.CLARE BOYLE’S DONEGALDAILY DOG BLOG! was last modified: November 28th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CLARE BOYLE’S DONEGALDAILY DOG BLOG!last_img read more

VC Series A Web Tech Deals in August

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… bernard lunn Today is the anniversary of the Lehman Brothers collapse, which triggered the financial meltdown. That was when ReadWriteWeb started tracking Series A deals in Web technology. Thanks to our partner ChubbyBrain, we can now do this reliably and easily. Executive summary for August: down from July, with seed deals very weak. Analysis: decadent Europeans are not the only ones who take holidays in August. Read on for details.All That Beach Time Is Bad for BusinessAugust clocked in at $78.6 million, well below the blistering months of May and July, but on par with April and June’s $77.1 million, and more than double that of dismal January.Here are the month-to-month growth numbers for seed and Series A deals in the Web and mobile space in the US:January: $30.3 millionFebruary: $45.5 millionMarch: $55.7 millionApril: $73.7 millionMay: $103.2 millionJune: $77.1 millionJuly: $93.5 millionAugust: $78.6 millionGet back to work VCs!Trend-SpottingSeed activity was pathetic, with only two deals, totaling $1.75 million. This could possibly have been a tracking issue, because seed deals often aren’t reported. That is the next frontier of innovation financing transparency.Which Ventures Received Money?AkademosBL HealthcareContinuity EngineDealBaseDecision Maker MediaFanbaseFashion PlaytesFwixIsocketJanRainKeisenseMagnify.netMogMyWebGrocerNetProspexOpenRoad Integrated MediaQueplixRadioTimeRightsFlowRobloxSCVNGRShowClixSkyBloxSocialwareUrgent CareerUstream.TVWanovaWorkfaceZ2LiveZumboxWhich VCs Wired the Money?Co-investors are shown on a single line.Altos Ventures, First Round CapitalArt Bilger, Rick Braddock, Michael Eisner, Bill Guthy, Donn RappaportArthur VenturesBay Area Equity FundBenchmark CapitalBlueRun VenturesConnecticut InnovationsDFJ FrontierDraper Fisher Jurvetson, Blumberg Capital, Plug and Play Ventures, SoftTech Venture Capital, Founders Fund, TechStars, Metamorphic Ventures, Accelerator Ventures, Quest Venture Partners, GSD&M IdeaCity, undisclosed angel investorsFirst Round CapitalGreylock Partners, Carmel Ventures, Opus CapitalHighland Capital PartnersICCP Venture Partners, Startup Capital Ventures, ICCP Venture partnersiNovia CapitalJavelin Venture PartnersKohlberg VenturesMadrona Venture GroupMenlo Ventures, Simon Equity Partners, Scott JonesMueller Media, Undisclosed Angel InvestorsNew Atlantic Ventures, LaunchCapitalNextStage Capital, New York Angels, Rose Tech Ventures, Chris Anderson, Undisclosed Angel InvestorsOriginate VenturesPittsburgh Equity PartnersRichard Tahta, Undisclosed InvestorsRoss Siegelman, Bob Zipp, Josh Hannah, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Amicus Capital, Matrix PartnersSGIO LLCSilverton PartnersStripes GroupThe Three Biggest DealsWanova: $13 millionBased in: San Jose, California.Investors: Greylock Partners, Carmel Ventures, Opus Capital.“Wanova provides Distributed Desktop Virtualization solutions that transform how companies manage, support and protect their desktops and laptops.”MyWebGrocer: $13 millionBased in: Colchester, Vermont.Investor: Stripes Group.MyWebGrocer runs websites on behalf of grocery chains and sells advertising to consumer packaged goods companies across all of the sites, which collectively have a reach of 4 million shoppers.Zumbox: $8 millionBased in: Westlake Village, California.Investors: Art Bilger, Rick Braddock, Michael Eisner, Bill Guthy, Donn Rappaport.Zumbox delivers paperless mail online, from street address to street address.It is interesting that the investors for the third largest deal are individuals and not a company. $8 million is a lot for individuals. Is this a threat to institutional VC?Also, the second largest deal comes from a relatively unknown fund (Stripes Group) and a location not normally regarded as a white-hot den of technology (Vermont).center_img Tags:#start#startups Related Posts 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Choosing a Private Cloud Provider and Doing it All Wrong

first_img8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market There’s a right way to choose a cloud provider and there’s a wrong way. The right way is to do the research about your needs and requirements. The wrong way is to choose a provider by evaluating and comparing vendor offerings.John Treadway writes on CloudBzz that IT leaders he speaks with are taking the latter approach. They’re evaluating the vendors and not doing their own analysis.Instead, IT leaders should be going through a long list of questions before starting to evaluate vendors. His initial list gives a taste about how IT leaders should approach the task:What are the strategic objectives for my cloud program?How will my cloud be used?Who are my users and what are their expectations and requirements?How should/will a cloud model change my data center workflows, policies, processes and skills requirements?How will cloud users be given visibility into their usage, costs and possible chargebacks?How will cloud users be given visibility into operational issues such as server/zone/regional availability and performance?What is my approach to the service catalog? Is it prix fixe, a la carte, or more like value meals? Can users make their own catalogs?How will I handle policy around identity, access control, user permissions, etc?What are the operational tools that I will use for event management & correlation, performance management, service desk, configuration and change management, monitoring, logging, auditability, and more?What will my vCenter administrators do when they are no longer creating VMs for every request?What will the approvers in my process flows today do when the handling of 95% of all future requests are policy driven and automated?What levels of dynamism are required regarding elasticity, workload placement, data placement and QoS management across all stack layers?Beyond a VM, what other services will I expose to my users?How will I address each of the key components such as compute, networking, structured & object storage, virtualization, security, automation, self-service, lifecycle management, databases and more?What are the workloads I expect to see in my cloud, and what are the requirements for these workloads to run?Treadway says IT leaders are letting the tail wag the dog. We can see how that can be the case. It seems logical to do the research first. But this may not be about the right choice as much as it is about the economical one for the business. That’s a problem. Vendors will offer all sorts of incentives to get your business. That can lead to trade offs that can really hurt down the road.
