American Jewish World Service Announces Latest Docket

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 21, 2008

American Jewish World Service (AJWS) today announced that it has awarded in its most recent grant review more than $ 3.8 million in grants to 154 organizations in 27 countries throughout the developing world. These recent grants, totaling $ 3,887,786, are divided into five umbrella funds, which include Sustainable Livelihoods and Development, Community Health, Community Voice, Education for All, and Community Engagement in Conflicts and Emergencies.

As part of this docket, AJWS will be awarding grants related to education in conflict-affected countries in conjunction with the Clinton Global Initiative as well as grants providing opportunities to adolescent girls through support from the Nike Foundation.

AJWS’s mission is to alleviate poverty, hunger and disease among poor people in developing countries regardless of race, religion or nationality. Seventy-five percent of the grantees that will be receiving money from AJWS as a result of this review have annual budgets of less than $ 300,000 and most rely on AJWS for at least 60 percent of their funding.

Recipients of AJWS funding include grassroots organizations working in their communities to promote social change and to address the fundamental causes of poverty, discrimination and injustice. These organizations ensure access to basic services, such as education and health, while assisting individuals to develop livelihoods that will provide them with the means to support their families and contribute meaningfully to the development of their communities.

“We believe that grassroots organizations are best positioned to transform communities; human rights are essential to the process; women are critical drivers of change; and that, ultimately,

marginalized communities must be able to mobilize from within,” said Ruth W. Messinger, President of AJWS. “All of our grants reflect our core values and our grassroots approach to community and human development.”

Highlights include:


Community Health –

AJWS will be awarding a grant to the Imana Association to support a pilot project in Nigeria addressing poverty among HIV-affected widows and orphans. The focus of the project is to reduce stigma faced by these community members by promoting state responsibility around human rights and by providing basic healthcare and education. Another community health project that AJWS will be supporting is Mujeres de Anta, a group in Peru that is focused on helping community members effectively organize and pursue reparations for the forced sterilization of indigenous women in the 1990s.

Sustainable Livelihoods and Community Development –

In its grantmaking, AJWS continues to emphasize land and labor rights for indigenous people. For example, AJWS will be awarding a grant to Gaon Ganrajya Abjiyan, a network of peoples’ organizations mobilizing tribal and rural communities across four states in India to assert their livelihood rights in an era of globalization that has had devastating consequences for the land and resources of indigenous groups. In Senegal, AJWS is supporting the efforts of Green Senegal to help small-scale farmers and community-based agricultural groups improve their farming capacities through training in drip irrigation.

Community Voice –

Among the new grantees AJWS will be supporting is Center for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP) in Uganda. CEDOVIP will be using AJWS support to continue its work in educating communities on the link between the spread of HIV and domestic violence. AJWS will also award a grant to Independent Advocacy Project of Nigeria which advocates for increased transparency and accountability in public HIV/AIDS funding.

Education for All –

AJWS’s first new grant under the Clinton Global Initiative will go to the Alianza Maya para la Educacion Popular in Guatemala, a network of eight community-based organizations dedicated to providing high-quality, bi-cultural education for indigenous children. In Kenya, as part of the Nike Grassroots Girls Initiative, AJWS will be awarding a renewal grant to the Education Centre for the Advancement of Women, which will conduct an empowerment camp to improve adolescent girls’ understandings of sexual and reproductive health.

Community Engagement in Conflicts and Emergencies –

In Colombia, where one out of four para-military soldiers is under 18 years of age, AJWS will be supporting Picaho con Futures, which reintegrates youth soldiers into society by building their capacity to participate in public policy and democratic processes and by fostering inter-generational learning exchanges with adult organzations. AJWS is also initiating a partnership with Centre for Child Rights and Development, a group in India that develops neighborhood child protection committees to prepare children in the event of future disasters.

TTPCom Latest Triband Modules to Deliver Cost-Effective Matrix Location Functionality from CPS

Cambridge, UK (PRWEB) January 13, 2005

TTPCom Ltd, the world’s leading independent supplier of digital wireless technology, today announces that its triband GSM/ GPRS wireless modem module designs are now available with high accuracy location functionality based on Matrix technology from CPS (Cambridge Positioning Systems Limited). The integration of CPS’ award-winning Matrix location software provides a cost effective method of delivering fast and accurate location fixes.

TTPCom’s flexible and compact ITM338 and ITM339 modules are designed to fit a wide range of applications within the rapidly growing machine-to-machine (M2M) and consumer markets. Each module meets all operator and regulatory requirements and uses the same high quality silicon and software that the world’s leading manufacturers rely on.

The integration of CPS’s Matrix location technology enables the modules to be rapidly located to an accuracy of sub-100m. The modules use the existing GSM network infrastructure to transfer location information to the network using standard GPRS or SMS. This greatly reduces the rollout costs traditionally associated with high accuracy mobile location technology. Matrix will also work effectively indoors and in urban environments where satellite-based systems fail to perform and, because Matrix integration requires only a software upgrade to the mobile device, this technology provides cost and size advantages over GPS solutions.

Chris Wade, Chief Executive of CPS said: “Operators around the world are actively evaluating and selecting Matrix as the location technology of choice for GSM. The availability of these new Matrix-enabled devices offers more choice to the market and significantly lowers the cost of entry for end users seeking high accuracy location capability to support corporate and enterprise services. This new development will also further strengthen our relationship with TTPCom and we look forward to working closely with the company on the significant new opportunities that are now emerging.”

Stephen Larder, MD of TTPCom’s module business adds: “Our GPRS technology is considered by many to be the best in the market as it has been adopted in a broad cross section of leading products world-wide. We are delighted to be able to enhance the functionality of our already popular module designs to enable new market opportunities. In particular, our Matrix-enabled modules address needs where previously the high cost, complexity and power-consumption of GPS-based solutions has greatly limited the adoption of location based applications.”

The modules will be showcased at the 3GSM World Congress 2005 in Cannes in February where both TTPCom (stand no A3) and CPS (stand no C21) are exhibiting.

Potential uses for these new devices include:

discreet tracking devices for vehicles for both personal safety and logistics

tracking of ‘at risk’ individuals including workers, children and security personnel

resource tracking of high value devices including laptops and cargoes

About Cambridge Positioning Systems

Cambridge Positioning Systems Limited (CPS) is the key enabler for high accuracy location in the GSM wireless world. Our innovative Matrix products – based on standardised E-OTD technology – allow network operators and enterprises to develop new services that improve the safety of their customers and deliver profitable applications.

CPS’ Matrix technology – winner of the Frost & Sullivan Customer Value Award 2004 – is a unique software-only solution that combines sub-100m accuracy with rapid location time-to-fix and consistent performance across outdoor and indoor environments. Easy to deploy, Matrix requires software-enabled standard GSM devices and network server.

Austin, Texas (PRWEB) January 22, 2013

Texas and many other states have now mandated child abuse training requirements meaning failure to recognize and report child abuse can result in serious consequences. Workplace Answers new Texas-certified course Child Abuse and Molestation Awareness and Prevention in Texas trains education employees to properly recognize and report potential child maltreatment, in the overall effort to prevent child abuse.

Latest Edition of Absolute Rights Newsletter Sent to Global Readers


Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 24, 2013

Absolute Rights, the freedom fighting news and opinion site, has issued its newest Digital Newsletter and sent it to the tens of thousands of subscribers who receive the biweekly collection of online articles.

The main article comes from guest contributor Kevin Jackson, and covers the idea of President Obama being Americas father.

By now you likely have heard that Chris Rock considers Barack Obama to be Americas father, Jackson wrote. If that is true, then would somebody call Child Protective Services and find us foster parents?!

Jackson is a radio show host and bestselling author of Sexy Brilliance and Other Political Lies. A highly-sought national speaker and consultant, Jackson writes for TheBlackSphere.net and Big Government.

Contenders Corner is the Newsletter section focusing on political issues within the Beltway, and this editions article was contributed by Karl Dobias. The article compares the current Congressional makeup with a summer music festival lineup.

Now, in the grand scheme of things, Congress is nothing like a music festivalold white guys talking and, more often than not, disagreeing with each other when it comes to decisions on bills and policies, versus a two to three day outdoor music and arts festival that celebrates expression, love, and music, Dobias wrote in the article. But what do these two seemingly opposite things have in common? Disappointment!

The Crisis Ops article was contributed by SurvivalLife.com Managing Editor Above Average Joe, who shares his recent bulk trash experience. While emptying his home of junk he didnt need, he saw firsthand the ingenuity and practicality of some wise trash pickers.

As I began toss my unwanted items out on the curb I witnessed a live action version of the old adage One mans trash is another mans treasure. There were some items that were gone before I even made it back with another armful, Joe wrote.

The last section of the Newsletter is the Global Watch article, which was written by Grady Kerr. The subject of the article is Maureen OConnor, the widow of the Jack in the Box founder who has gambled away her inheritance.

Prosecutors said her gambling activity exceeded $ 1 BILLION over the period 2000 2008. This money was lost from mostly playing video poker in casinos, wrote Kerr. Shes charged with money laundering as she took this gambling money from the R. P. Foundation, the nonprofit foundation her husband started and she managed.

The Absolute Rights Newsletter is sent to thousands of Absolute Rights email subscribers as part of the never-ending effort to bring relevant and captivating content directly to readers. Newsletters are distributed via email and the articles then appear online at AbsoluteRights.com.

Cook Profitability Services expands into latest Care to Share patient referral program


SAN ANTONIO, TX (PRWEB) December 31, 2011

Cook Profitability Services, a San Antonio web design, internet marketing and media services firm that specializes in dental professionals, has announced its expansion into internal marketing with the Care to Share program of profitability tools designed to boost in-house new-patient referrals dramatically.

While dental referral programs arent new, the Care to Share program brings them to a whole new level, said Debbie Baumgarten, CEO of the San Antonio web and marketing company. Of all types of leads, most dental professionals value patient referrals as the best for producing new patients.

Traditional patient referral programs generally include mailings of special-offer postcards. And while these have had some success, Baumgarten said dental professionals using the new Care to Share program are seeing a doubling or tripling of new-patient referrals.

The new CPS service includes providing the practice with high-end plastic cards similar in quality to a Starbucks gift card that are provided to patients, who are encouraged to give them to friends or family that may need dental services. The cards are custom designed for the individual practice, and can be recycled to new patients after use.

Staff participation is integral to the Care to Share program, and CPS services include an e-learning web-accessible training course. This teaches dental staffers their role in marketing the product.

An optional web-access dashboard provides a one-stop control panel for all the dental offices marketing efforts, allowing practices to see exactly what calls are coming in from which marketing efforts. It also allows managers to listen to recordings of calls, so they can monitor their staffers skills at customer service.

These expansions allow CPS to continue its vision of being a one-stop national shop that can handle all aspects of a practices marketing, publicity and workflow and fiscal efficiency all aimed at gaining and retaining customers and improving profits.
