Easily Use IP Cameras on Chat Applications such as SKYPE, Google, and AOL with New Software Tools from Visec


Northridge, CA (PRWEB) February 21, 2013

Philex Enterprises, Inc. (http://www.visecpro.com) manufacturer of Visec(R) Software, a suite of IP video surveillance software applications utilizing sophisticated mathematical algorithms, announces that it is the first company in the world to develop Virtual Camera driver(TM), a software application that supports simultaneous use of IP cameras in popular chat application programs like SKYPE, Google, and AOL, while also allowing shared use of the camera(s) in its surveillance application with no added configurations.

The Visec Virtual Camera driver allows any camera connected to the Visec Software to be used in a chat application. Prior technical restrictions made simultaneously sharing an IP camera close to impossible. The Visec Virtual Camera driver easily provides support for IP cameras and adds portability to the IP camera industry. A user only has to select the desired camera to make available in the chat application and the Visec Virtual Camera driver will seamlessly go to work allowing that camera to be shared by the chat software.

“IP cameras are becoming the new standard of video based on their increased quality, bandwidth availability and lower price points,” says Alexander Bordbar, Chief Technology Officer of Philex Enterprises, Inc. “While the popularity of IP cameras makes them powerful tools for home and businesses users, the traditional lack of support for these cameras in video conferencing has reduced their applied use. This has all changed thanks to the easy to use Visec Virtual Camera driver. It is a significant advancement for the IP camera software industry and now brings IP/ Network camera support to a new class of cameras.”

Prior technical restrictions made simultaneously sharing of an IP camera close to impossible. The Visec Virtual Camera Driver works by taking the IP camera stream and then rebroadcasting it as a Windows Device Manager Driver (WDM). As a result, all Windows programs can successfully see the camera accessible as a real physical camera.

The technology offers many applied uses by simplifying the time, and requirements needed to share an additional video feed whether in meetings or chats. For example, a company can now share video in locations that web cameras previously did not have accessibility to. IP cameras deployed on site in remote locations can also be easily accessed for chat purposes. In other scenarios, support teams and project managers can deploy this technology for troubleshooting purposes or to provide an additional real time perspective at an existing site location.

The Visec Virtual Camera Driver is being included in future versions of the Visec Software. A free downloadable version of the software is available for single camera use. Philex is offering the technology on a license basis to other integrators and OEM developers. The company is also in the process of filing for a provisional patent on the technology.

LM First Income Mortgage Fund payout expected from frozen Aussie fund


Sydney, New South Wales (PRWEB) February 09, 2013

Thirteen hundred New Zealand investors have put money into the Currency Protected Australian LM First Income Mortgage Fund run by Queensland-headquartered LM Investment Management.

More than a thousand New Zealanders who had more than $ 100 million dollars tied up in an embattled Australian fund are expected to get their first payouts by March.

This fund acted as a feeder into LM First Income Mortgage Fund, which has a number of commercial Australian property investments but was frozen in the wake of the global financial crisis.

At the time of the freeze in March 2009, New Zealand investors had A$ 95 million ($ 119 million) in this fund, although LM Investment Management expects they will now only get around 59c in the dollar back.

No payouts of capital have been made since the fund was put on ice but in its latest update to investors,LM Investment Management says it hopes to make initial distributions to them by March.

LM Investment Management could not reveal how much investors should expect in the first payment, although its update said that it intended to repay capital on a periodic basis.

The payment process is expected to take around two to three years, with payments likely to be made each quarter.

LM Investment Management was founded in 1993 by expat New Zealander Peter Drake and claims to have assets worth more than A$ 3 billion under management.

Peter Drake has revealed LM Investment Management was forced to go on the PR offensive last year after another Australian fund management firm, Trilogy Capital Group, attempted to take over two of its funds.

Trilogy has publicly criticised the running of the LM First Income Mortgage Fund. Mr Drake responded by calling Trilogy a “corporate fund raider” and accused it of spreading misinformation.

Trilogy successfully replaced LM Investment Management as the responsible entity for one of the funds it had eyed up following a meeting held in Sydney in early November.

The timing for this new announcement could not have come at a better time. These days, in order to have a successful web page, lawyers need to do much more than create a basic website, build a few back links to it and sit back as the site rises to the top of the search results. Attorney websites are so common, it is vital that everything is done properly to create a high quality and clean website, as well as establish a strong presence in social media.

A lot of lawyer websites that we come across have the same old boring information that has not been updated in years, an article on Legal Finds website noted, adding that Google wants to see fresh content added to websites on a regular basis.

For example, youll notice a lot of websites ranking on page one of Google have blogs and are updating it regularly. This is a great way to build content and rank high in the process.

Another factor that is important to creating a high quality website for a law firm is back links. What some attorneys do not realize is that having the wrong type, or linking too many of the same pages, may actually hurt their website. This is why hiring a professional SEO company to handle the back linking is vital.

Toronto lawyers who would like to try out the new legal marketing service offered at Legal Find are welcome to take the companys lawyer SEO marketing challenge. For 30 days, lawyers may experience the new SEO service completely risk free. If Legal Find does not increase the firms search engine ranking, or if a lawyer is otherwise dissatisfied with the service, then it does not have to be continued.

Howard Rahtz Releases New Book, Drugs, Crime and Violence: From Trafficking to Treatment, Offering a New Prescription for Americas Drug Problem


Cincinnati, Ohio (PRWEB) January 11, 2013

Howard Rahtz has a dual background in drug treatment & drug interdiction, providing him with firsthand experience of Americas drug prohibition policy. His career in law enforcement spanned eighteen years where he rose to the rank of Police Captain in the Cincinnati Police Department. His journey in law enforcement and drug rehabilitation is an interesting parallel to the forty years of the Drug War. In Drugs, Crime and Violence: From Trafficking to Treatment, just released by Hamilton Books, Rahtz lays out a new prescription for Americas drug problem, which supports drug regulation rather than prohibition. Each chapter includes a true story with a tragic outcome as a result of the war on drugs, as well as a discussion of the issues, and extensive source notes. Drugs, Crime and Violence: From Trafficking to Treatment lists for $ 28.99 and is available through Amazon.com.

In his new book Rahtz concludes the Drug War has failed as a policy, and it is time for America to embrace a different approach. Prohibition has filled our jails, criminalized millions of our citizens, provided a financial windfall for international and local criminal groups, and somehow we never tire of pretending it is working.

Howard Rahtz has presented one of the most comprehensive works ever written dealing with the multiple layers of problems caused by drugs and alcohol in our society,” comments Lawrence M. Anthony, Ph.D., LICDC, substance abuse treatment specialist, U.S. District Court, coordinator, Addictions Studies, Beckfield College. His intuitive analyses of our drug policies, along with his insights into our interdiction and law enforcement efforts, have rightfully concluded that unless we begin to make major changes in our attitudes, laws, and social policies, we may never come close to resolving this ubiquitous and devastating dilemma.

Rahtz lays out three tenets to the Drug War that demand a change in policy effectiveness, cost and basic fairness. From the street drug markets in U.S. cities to the escalating drug war on the Mexican border, the United States response to date can be described as the same old, same old more border agents, more police, more arrests, and bigger jails with a measure of drug treatment and prevention thrown into the mix. This book outlines significant policy moves that will siphon off the customer base of the illegal drug market. The first is legalization of marijuana, the cartels cash cow.

Moving marijuana to a legal status takes 30-40% of the drug market and transitions them to the legitimate economy. Rahtz goes on to explain how a tax policy that earmarks a portion of these funds for addiction treatment programs will further marginalize traffickers. With some modifications of drug laws and expansion of treatment options, I believe we can move substantially more addicts out of the drug market and into drug treatment. With its customer base gone, the illegal drug market goes out of business.

About the Author

Howard Rahtz is one of only a handful of people who have worked on both sides of the drug supply-demand equation. He earned his masters in Rehab Counseling from the University of Cincinnati coupled with his degree from Northwestern University School of Police Command and the Ohio Police Executive Leadership College. As a SWAT Negotiations Team Coordinator for the Cincinnati Police Department (CPD), Rahtz was responsible for the selection, training and deployment of SWAT Negotiators and Technicians. He coordinated with the Tactical Team for successful resolution of hostage and barricade situations for many years. Later, during Rahtz’s tenure as Captain of the CPD’s Central Vice Control Section, he implemented major reorganization to increase efficiencies in vice enforcement, which led to increased seizures of drugs, money and assets from traffickers. Rahtz also shifted the focus of drug enforcement from arrests to longer-term strategic efforts. Prior to his law enforcement career, Rahtz gained invaluable insight into the drug problem as a supervisor for a city run methadone program. As Executive Director of the Alcoholism Council, where he worked to establish treatment, intervention and prevention programs in the Cincinnati community, he was instrumental in starting the first local family intervention program and spearheading the first agency to address the needs of children of addicted parents.

Rahtz authored two previous books that are widely used by police academies and law enforcement agencies across the country. Read more about them on his website, http://howardrahtz.com/:

Bank Street College of Education Commends New Reform Initiatives from Governor Cuomo


New York, NY (PRWEB) January 10, 2013

In his New York State of the State address on January 9, Governor Andrew Cuomo championed several initiatives proposed by the New NY Education Reform Commission, on which Elizabeth DickeyPresident at Bank Street College of Educationserves.

The Commission presented its Education Action Plan to the Governor in early January, after nearly a year of conducting research and reaching out to stakeholders throughout the state. Governor Cuomo outlined that reports key preliminary recommendations in his speech.

We need more early education, said Cuomo. Every expert will tell you that early education makes a difference, and it makes a difference for life. The statistics are overwhelming. Children who receive early education perform 25% better on math by the second grade, 20% better in English, 30% are more likely to graduate from high school, 32% are less likely to be arrested as a juvenile.

We should provide real pre-K for all our children, the Governor concluded. We will expand the pre-K to full-day pre-K, five hours, and we will start with students in the lowest-wealth school districts. Lets do it today.

Joel Moser, chair of the Bank Street College Board of Trustees Government Relations Committee, remarked on the prominent role the College has played in advocating for the kinds of changes reflected in the Commissions report and in the Governors speech.

Bank Street has fought for expanded access to pre-Kindergarten since the genesis of programs like Head Start in the 1960s, Moser noted, and continues to advocate for policies that make life better for children and families. Developing effective early learning programs for young children in high needs neighborhoods is essential because the potential for achieving educational success begins at birth. We believe that the goal of expanding access to these programs is to improve equity and opportunity for all learnersideas that have earned a prominent place in the Commissions report.

Regarding the role of Bank Streets president in the Commission, Moser said, we are delighted that Elizabeth and Bank Street College have been asked to bring its expertise to such important policy discussions.

We want to be helpful to policymakers on the states most pressing education reform issues, said Moser. In October, Bank Street hosted one of eleven Education Reform Commission public hearings that served as an opportunity for commissioners to hear directly from stakeholders, including parents, teachers, and public servants throughout the state.

Business leader Richard Parsons, the Commissions chairman, noted in the initial report that it was imperative to address these complex issues based on facts, not ideology or conjecture. The final action plan, due in September 2013, is intended to outline a statewide system that supports a student from the earliest days of pre-Kindergarten through college and then career.

ABOUT BANK STREET COLLEGE

Since its founding in 1916, Bank Street College of Education has been an acclaimed educational institution and advocate for children and families. Bank Street is uniquely structured and internationally-recognized as a free-standing, private Graduate School of Education, an on-site independent School for Children, and a broad range of professional development and social programs. Its mission is to improve the education of children and their teachers by applying to the education process all available knowledge about learning and growth, and by connecting teaching and learning meaningfully to the outside world.
