The combined company will unite a proven online store platform with a vast array of e-commerce marketing services.”Our team was already working in the CommerceV3 environment to grow orders and sales for many of our clients,” says Bud Reed, founder of Timberline. “In many ways, this merger was driven by our focus on the customers. It gives them even more technology options and streamlines website launch and development processes.”Reed, who launched Timberline Interactive ten years ago, is retiring from day-to-day operational duties but will continue in an advisory role to provide strategic direction for the combined companies.CommerceV3 president Nathan Focht rarely gets excited, but he recognizes a new and unique opportunity for merchants. “The CV3 platform has always had a strong feature set to help customers grow their sales, but this merger puts us way ahead of the curve.

Together we offer a high octane growth solution to merchants large and small — a combination you can’t find anywhere else in our industry.”Tom Funk will serve as VP of Marketing for the new organization. Funk has been with Timberline for three years and before that worked as Web Manager for the Vermont Teddy Bear Company, where he managed sites doing $46 million a year in e-commerce sales. He is a frequent speaker at Internet Retailer, and other industry events and is the author of the book Web 2.0 and Beyond: Understanding the New Online Business Models, Trends, and Technologies.”Today, businesses need to take advantage of every online revenue source: paid search, SEO, email and more. But their success also depends on the features and flexibility of their e-commerce platforms,” says Funk. “This deal brings together two leading e-commerce companies who can now offer both pieces: the online marketing services to drive traffic and the online store technology to convert it to sales.””CommerceV3 meets even complex customer requirements straight out of the box,” says Deb Brisson, Timberline’s VP of Software Development. “And when we need to go further, we utilize TI Commerce.” TI Commerce is an entirely customizable commerce platform built using the Microsoft .NET programming environment. “With CV3 and TI Commerce, we have more technical flexibility than any other provider in the industry, period.””This is big news in multi-channel and direct marketing circles,” says Scott Weaver of Atlanta-based Colinear Systems, a software firm specializing in order management software for large retailers. “Anybody who has searched for products on Google and shopped online has probably encountered the work of these two firms without knowing it. They’re the folks behind the scenes who make finding products and ordering online a smooth and easy process.

Governor to sign energy bill at commissioning of the 150 kw solar array in South Burlington

first_imgVermont Governor Peter Shumlin will sign into law a bill promoting renewable energy development and clean energy jobs in Vermont on May 25 in South Burlington.  H.56, The Vermont Energy Act of 2011 continues Vermont’s efforts to promote a green economy and energy independence. It expands and improves Vermont’s successful net metering program which allows Vermont ratepayers to generate their own energy with renewable systems and run their meter backwards when producing excess power. Recognizing the peak power savings of net metered solar, the new bill creates a financial incentive to catalyze more net metered solar by requiring utilities to offer a 20¢ credit to solar net metering customers for the energy they produce.Governor, Peter Shumlin is slated to sign the bill on May 25 at the commissioning of a 150kW solar array at the Farm at South Village in South Burlington developed by Burlington-based Encore Redevelopment and installed by Montpelier’s Alteris Renewables. The array will provide carbon-free electricity for 100% of the Farm at South Village and South Village Community’s energy consumption needs. The array will also provide clean energy to the City of South Burlington for the City’s traffic lights. Martha Staskus, Chair of the Board of Renewable Energy Vermont (REV), the organization that supported and promoted this legislation says the bill helps keep Vermont on the map as a leader in renewable energy and energy efficiency. ‘The bill will spur the development of new local renewable energy, produce economic growth, and continue to grow clean jobs.’The bill also prevents a gap in funding for the successful Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF). This fund makes it more affordable for Vermont homeowners and businesses to install small-scale renewable energy systems. The bill includes expansions Vermont’s existing Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) districts, a program that allows towns to offer loans to homeowners looking to make energy efficiency retrofits. Other provisions provide incentives for consumers looking to install high efficiency biomass heating systems. It also establishes low sulfur and biofuel mandates for heating oil sold in Vermont, timed to match implementation by surrounding states.  Date: May 25, 2011 Time: 1:00pm – 3:00pmLocation: South Village Communities, 130 Allen Road East, S. Burlington, VT. About Renewable Energy Vermont (REV), is external)  REV is a nonprofit, nonpartisan trade association representing nearly 300 businesses, individuals, colleges and others committed to reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and expanding the availability of renewable sources of energy in Vermont. REV works as the only advocacy organization dedicated solely to advancing renewable energy and efficiency in the state.last_img read more

We love it,” she said. “There is a seamless integration between indoors and outdoors. The home is resort-like, calm, with an abundance of natural light.” She said the home would be ideal for a family with young or teenage children.

Government Slammed For Manipulating Voters in Voting Packs

first_imgMedia Release SayNopeToDope NZ 13 July 2020The Say Nope To Dope campaign is slamming the government for its voting pack on the cannabis referendum, and is seeking legal advice.“We’ve been contacted by a number of families who believe that the government pamphlet is putting their own spin on the proposed change to our cannabis laws through propaganda,” says Aaron Ironside, spokesperson for the Say Nope To Dope campaign.“The government tries to argue in the pamphlet that “The bill’s purpose is to reduce harm to people and communities” – but that is a highly subjective statement. That is purely the view of those proposing change. Those against the legislation are arguing that legalisation will lead to more harm to people and communities. Why has that opinion not been included?”“The government should be remaining completely independent on this referendum and the information they’re providing to voters, but they are showing their true colours. They have already hinted at this by not asking the simple question in the referendum “Do you want cannabis legalised for recreational use?” which is what the referendum should really be about. Instead they have loaded the question with putting the wording of a proposed bill which includes words like ‘control’ – also a highly dubious claim.”“The government should be impartial, but this pamphlet has confirmed their pro-cannabis legalisation stance.” The Say Nope To Dope campaign is now seeking legal advice, and will be also making an official complaint to the Electoral Commission.ENDSlast_img read more

Vaccination Week in the Americas: Love. Trust. Protect. #GetVax

first_img 10 Views   no discussions Share Tweet AnnouncementsLifestyleLocalNewsRegional Vaccination Week in the Americas: Love. Trust. Protect. #GetVax by: – April 28, 2020 Sharecenter_img Share Sharing is caring! Pan American Health Organisation/World Health Organisation Country Programme Specialist, Anneke Wilson speaks on the 18th Vaccination Week in the Americas from April 25th to May 2nd, 2020 themed, “Love. Trust. Protect. #GetVax.” The 9th World Immunization Week is celebrated April 24-30.“The celebration of this year’s Vaccination Week in the Americas is being convened in an unusual and very difficult epidemiological context. While we have a challenging task ahead of us to deal with COVID-19, we must take a moment to recognize that many other dangerous diseases can be prevented through immunization.Some of the diseases that vaccines prevent are seasonal Influenza, Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Polio, BCG and Cervical Cancer. Hence, immunization is considered an essential service that must be ensured during the pandemic.PAHO recommends that countries pay special attention to vaccination against influenza to protect vulnerable populations including older adults, people living in nursing homes or asylums, people with non-communicable diseases, and health care workers.We cannot afford to lose the success gained through strong vaccination programs and the contribution it has made to healthy and productive nations.Vaccines not only keep populations healthier, but also reduce the burden on the health systems, thus allowing them to focus on other areas including the response to COVID-19 which is presently affecting countries.This year’s vaccination campaign brings to mind the love people have for their children, themselves, and their communities and the trust in vaccines’ ability to save lives and the protection they provide for every one everywhere.We must also remember to salute the Health Care workers who continue to labour in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic.PAHO encouraged countries earlier this year to focus and recognize the work of the Nurse Midwife.So as Vaccination Week in the Americas is being celebrated we must thank the nurses for their work, more specifically through the attainment of high vaccination coverage.Dominica continues to maintain an over 95 % vaccination coverage for diseases covered by the expanded program in immunization. They also continue to encourage access for booster vaccinations. I beg of you to maintain your appointments, if you are ill or cannot attend for one reason or another call and adjust your appointment with your health care provider.Please remember vaccines save lives …. Love… trust …. Protect ….Get VAX! “last_img read more

Kurth, Park sworn in

first_imgThe new president, vice president and Senate of the Undergraduate Student Government for the 2013-14 academic year were inaugurated Tuesday night after the final Senate meeting of the school year.Inauguration · Chief Justice Jimmy Castrellon swears Christian Kurth in as Undergraduate Student Government President Tuesday. — Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanAfter voting on the last items of unfinished business, the Senate meeting transitioned into the formal inauguration. Attendees dressed in formal attire for the occasion.President-elect Christian Kurth, who previously served as the USG director of university affairs, and Vice President-elect Ryan Park, previously a Greek senator, were sworn into office by the Chief Justice Jimmy Castrellon after the new senators took their oaths. After being introduced by former USG President Mikey Geragos, Kurth delivered a speech outlining his goals for the upcoming term.“We have been entrusted with the responsibility to help students feel at home on campus, to plan the greatest concert of their lives that they can enjoy with friends, to help them experience the culture of Los Angeles and to make sure their voices are heard by the administrations,” Kurth said in his inaugural speech.During their campaign, Kurth and Park promised to create an ultimate myUSC smartphone app, increase library hours, repair sidewalks on The Row and encourage the participation of the entire student body in USG’s decisions.“We want to help students understand what we do and why we do it, which is working to improve the USC undergraduate experience,” Park said. “We want students to rally around USG and use it as a voice to communicate [with] the administration.”Park said his experiences as Greek Senator have prepared him for the vice presidency.“Vice president is definitely going to be much more dynamic of a position, but I’ve learned a lot about the vice president’s responsibilities through osmosis by being on the Senate and learning from Vinnie [Prasad],” Park said.In addition to the inauguration of the president and vice president, 12 senators were sworn into office.Sophomores Nicole Schrad and freshman Logan Heley and junior Jamie Dick were inaugurated as Greek senators, while juniors Brett Ressler, Matthew Leiv and Lorin Winata were sworn into the positions of commuter senators.Freshmen David Choi, Michael Nguyen and Samantha Cheng and sophomores Matthew Prusak, Brandon Chang and Brianna McRee were inaugurated to serve next year’s residential constituency in the Senate.Park said that though the inauguration is an important event for transitioning the new officers, the process would be better carried out sooner.“It’s essentially the passing of the torch between the old Senate and the incoming Senate, as well as the old president and vice president and the new ones,” Park said. “It’s more of a formality and should be done directly after we’re elected, in my opinion.”Geragos and Prasad said they have mixed feelings about the conclusion of their administration, but are optimistic about the future of USG.“It’s definitely bittersweet to pass the torch,” Geragos said. “I’ve had such an amazing time leading this organization and I will miss the work, but it has been a tiring process. It makes it a lot easier for me to pass it over knowing that I’m giving the presidency to one of my closest friends.”Prasad said he will always cherish the relationships he built and the things he was able to accomplish during his term, but that he is ready to move on from USG and looks forward to watching Kurth and Park head the organization.Prasad also offered words of advice for the newly inaugurated administration, encouraging them to forge connections with others as soon as possible.“I’d advise them to take the time to build relationships early, both inside of the organization and outside,” Prasad said. “Those relationships are key to tackling the challenges that come up throughout the year and creating the best possible experience for the undergraduates.”In his speech, Kurth said he would continue to follow in Geragos’ footsteps in striving to build lasting relationships. He concluded by expressing his eagerness to begin his term.“I truly believe that this year will be the greatest year USG has ever seen,” Kurth said, “and I can’t wait to get to work.”last_img read more
