Daruma Tech Develops New Augmented Reality App for Museum of Discovery and Science

Panther Prowl Experience at MODS

Panther Prowl Experience at MODS

Daruma Tech works with MODS on a theatrical, technology based, science show called "Panther Prowl"

We know from previous projects that AR is an effective and impactful way to create memorable educational experiences. We look forward to working with MODS to educate visitors about Florida Panthers.”

— Susan Erickson

BOCA RATON, FLORIDA, USA, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Continuing its long collaboration with the Museum of Discovery and Science (MODS) in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, Boca-Raton-based software developer Daruma Tech is working again with MODS to create “Panther Prowl”, an augmented reality (AR) app.

The app lets museum visitors engage in a virtual scavenger hunt for images of the endangered Florida Panther hidden through the museum. When app users find and point their phones at these “targets”, they will be treated to the sight of the images coming to life on their phones: A panther sunning on a rock will appear to wake up and roar, a panther in a framed picture will appear to jump out of the frame, and more. “The integration of science theater combined with an augmented reality scavenger hunt is a very innovative way to deliver content in the Museum industry,” said MODS Vice President, Joe Cytacki.

Panther Prowl, funded by the Florida Panthers Foundation to promote their panther conservation initiatives, will be the latest app to be included in the suite of apps created for MODS under its APP-titude internship program. MODS’ APP-titude internship program, funded by the United Way of Broward County, invites teams of high school students to explore MODS’ exhibits, learn about the museum’s mission, then acquire the programming skills needed to produce mini-apps showcasing MODS exhibits. As a corporate partner in the APP-titude program, Daruma Tech tests the student projects, then organizes and incorporates them into a single container app, available for free download on iTunes and Google Play. Although Panther Prowl, is funded separately by the Florida Panthers Foundation, it will be the latest app to be built by Daruma Tech and included in the MODS’ APP-titude container app which was also built by Daruma Tech for MODS.

Like MODS’ other apps, Panther Prowl will offer museum visitors a richer and more immersive experience while enhancing their awareness and knowledge of the natural world. “The Florida Panther is one of our state’s rarest but most iconic animals, and we want to help MODS share their knowledge of about them,” said Susan Erickson of Daruma Tech. “We know from our previous projects that AR is an effective and impactful way to create memorable educational experiences, and we look forward to working with MODS to educate more visitors about Florida Panthers.”

“The management team and staff at Daruma Tech always go above and far beyond anything the Museum could have expected on projects,” said Cytacki. Daruma Tech is a privately held software design firm based in the Florida Atlantic University (FAU) Research Park in Boca Raton, Florida. Its mission is to serve businesses across a range of industries with innovative software applications incorporating both cutting-edge technology and designs focused on the unique logistical and human needs of each client.

John Zimmel Lists Three Tips for Becoming an Entrepreneur

John Zimmel Greenwich CT

At 21 years’ old, John Zimmel is a budding entrepreneur. Here’s three tips that he says will help other young go-getters get their businesses up and running.

GREENWICH, CT, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Just a few short years ago, John Zimmel was not a business owner. In fact, much like many young people, he didn’t quite know what he wanted to do with his career, or where to start. John only knew that working a nine to five job was not for him.

“I realized I needed something where I could express myself creatively. Construct a career that I could be proud of and energize my day today,” said John Zimmel. “I wanted to be my own boss.”

John is not alone. One survey found that 66% of millennials have goals to start their own business. Yet, many do not. Lack of experience and huge student loan debt have been cited as the main obstacles. But young people have a huge advantage in the self-employed market with opportunities to succeed more quickly than the generation before them. One report from BNP Paribas showed that entrepreneurs between the ages of 20 and 35 had already founded double the amount of businesses as those over 50.

John Zimmel is a prime example. At 21 years old, he already owns four businesses in multiple states. He knows the feeling of wanting to start a self-employed life and knows how daunting the thought of it can be. Here are three tips that helped him get organized and finally launch his passion career as an entrepreneur.

Find What’s Right for You
“Be open to the exploration of the many facets of your life,” said John. “What is exciting to you? Follow your gut. If something feels lackluster, then it’s not right. If you feel inspired and energized by the thought, then you are on the right track.”

John continued, “Some examples include the realization you love math. You love talking about it, breaking it down, and helping people figure it out. This could lead you to a self-employed tutor. Or maybe you love planning trips on a budget. Do that for other people.”

Create a Support Network
“Surround yourself with similar masterminds,” said John Zimmel. “Build a network of people that support you, can advise you, and work with you now or in the future. Building a network is key to any successful business and opens up opportunities that you wouldn’t have thought of yourself.”

To get your networking off the ground, John recommends attending local chapters of business groups regularly to meet people in the same industry and gain experience meeting new people face-to-face.

Know Your Target Audience and Know How to Create Value for Them
“Understanding your audience is very vital to your business success,” said John. “Ask yourself who your customers are. Will your service be relevant to their daily life? Why would they need you? You need to come up with a value proposition, if you have nothing to offer your customers, then you don’t have a business.”

About John Zimmel
John Zimmel is a young, vibrant entrepreneur from Greenwich, CT who’s eager to take his clients’ brand recognition to the next level through social media strategies and high-quality digital content. He owns and operates four businesses including his modern-day communications parent company, Labyrinth35X; audio production company, Grass Fed Audio; digital content creation agency, West 35 Media; and his video production company, Nameless Productions. John Zimmel is also a performer himself of magic.

Women Finally Get Bay'd with St Johns New Fragrance

St Johns Coral fragrance for women

New St Johns Coral fragrance for women

Coral Eau De Toilette

Men shouldn’t be the only ones getting bay'd”

— St Johns Fragrance Co

RIDGEFIELD, CT, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — St Johns Fragrance Co recently introduced their new fragrance for women. This means that now women can get bay’d too. St. Johns new scent, Coral Eau De Toilette, is helping women get all the right kind of attention they deserve.

St Johns has been Helping Guys Get Bay'd since 1947, when Capt. John Webb founded the company after spending much of WWII as a Navy officer in the U.S. Virgin Islands. St Johns products have since expanded to colognes and aftershaves, bath soaps and candles (coming soon). They have come in St Johns classic Bay Rum scent and several other varieties, but all have been for men. Until now.

St Johns is changing that with a new philosophy: Men shouldn’t be the only ones getting bay'd.

The just-launched Coral Eau De Toilette for women can be described as “effortlessly elegant.” The fragrance creates a fresh spark when first applied, mellowing into floral and summery notes. It was designed to remind a woman of her femininity and all her other strengths, as she works and plays among colleagues.

When Webb wasn’t fighting the war, he also designed the unique “Fishpot Weave” packaging, made with local Tyre palm fronds, that adorn every bottle of St Johns products. Local island weavers continue to handcraft the iconic, palm design.

St Johns has maintained an important presence in the islands. Even as St Johns adds women to its list of consumers, the company’s strong ties to its history, combined with a modern outlook, allows it to stay true to its original mission:
Authentic.
Distinct.
Resilient.
Timeless.

St Johns products are available in better specialty shops and select apothecaries across the country, as well as at stjohnsbayrum.com.

In Connecticut and New York, St Johns can be found in Hutton's Fine Menswear in Ridgefield, R Derwin in Litchfield, J. Alden Clothiers in Essex, and in New York City at J Press and CO Bigelow.

Entertainment & Lifestyle Publicist Jovana Gilkes Launches Mentor Program 'Girls Can, Incorporated'

Inaugural Summit Performers

Inspiring G.I.R.L.S to be Graceful, Independent, Respectful, Loving and Successful.

Inaugural Youth Enrichment Summit

Girls Create Body & Imaging Workshop

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — (New York-NY) Jovana Gilkes has worked as a publicist since the founding of her company Storm PR Agency in 2011 working on projects for networks like BET (BET Awards, Hip-Hop Awards, Rip the Runway, Viewers Appreciation) NBC (The Great American Challenge) & VH-1 (Love & Hip-Hop NY, Mob Wives) and having clients in Beauty, Fashion, Film & Television, Music (J. Holiday, Vivian Green) and Sports (retired Jacksonville Jaguar Linebacker Alvin Bowen).

With the success of following her dream of working in the Entertainment business as an entrepreneur, Jovana has always been intentional with her community initiatives especially where giving back to at-risk youth was concerned. In 2016 she decided to step away from the world of Entertainment to focus on how she could be more impactful in her community by using her own trials and tribulations to inspire this generation, from this the idea of a youth enrichment summit was born. "I came up with the idea to have this summit while sitting in my living room one morning after praying, I just wasn't feeling fulfilled anymore by just being a publicist; it's my passion but not my purpose. I've always been involved in some aspect of community service but I wanted to do more!"

Realizing a need for more positive images to reverse what is believed to be real with the false perception of worth due to the saturation of the media and reality television, she came up with G.I.R.L.S Can and acronym for 'Graceful.Independent.Respectful.Loving.Successful'.'When I was growing up there were more positive images on television, with family shows, socially conscious shows like BET's Teen Summit and even where education is concerned with after-school programs, these things helped me a lot as a young girl whose home life was stressful. Being able to have an outlet and other positive women in my life is something today's generation especially girls don't have that; it really saddens me!".

The goal of Girls Can, Incorporated is to empower, inspire and uplift young ladies, by reminding them of their worth through educational & training services as well as the mentor initiative. Monthly 'A Conversation with My Big Sister' brunch series is held where young ladies are invited to partake in shared conversation on relatable topics with invited host.

Girls Can hosted its inaugural Youth Enrichment Summit last December, and will return this year with the 2nd Annual Summit on October 26th. "I want it to eventually a city tour, I believes will spark the change that is needed"!

When asked how she thinks her life shaped her today and how it will help influence change she says; "I'm thankful to be able to use my life experiences as the fuel to drive this project bringing this vision to life, even if I can impact only one girl then I've done my part."

TraceGains Praises UNPA and Other Trade Groups for Pressing Congress on CBDs

We’re pleased to see advocacy groups, like our partner UNPA, step up and urge Congress to take action to clear the way for hemp-derived CBD to be used as an ingredient in food and dietary supplements”

— TraceGains CEO Gary Nowacki

WESTMINSTER, CO, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — TraceGains, the leader in compliance, quality, and new product development software for the CPG industry, agrees with the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA) and other major trade associations that Congress needs to pass legislation clarifying hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) is a lawful dietary ingredient.

UNPA, in conjunction with the American Herbal Products Association, Council for Responsible Nutrition, and Consumer Healthcare Products Association, drafted an Oct. 8 letter to Congress urging timely action on legislation that would clarify the legal status of CBD. The groups also expressed fears that a lack of federal oversight could endanger public health and continue to foster an environment of uncertainty, which could inhibit investment and innovation in the burgeoning CBD marketplace.

In the letter, the groups asked lawmakers to provide funding for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to establish regulatory clarity and protect consumers from unsafe CBD products.

FDA has asserted CBD cannot be used as an ingredient in food or dietary supplements under federal law because the agency has already approved the first CBD pharmaceutical drug, Epidiolex, that’s used to treat certain types of seizures. In the agency’s review of potential rulemaking steps that would authorize CBD to be added to food and dietary supplements, agency officials have said the process would take several years.

“We’re pleased to see advocacy groups, like our partner UNPA, step up and urge Congress to take action to clear the way for hemp-derived CBD to be used as an ingredient in food and dietary supplements,” TraceGains CEO Gary Nowacki said. “At TraceGains, we’re already working with hemp companies to establish industry best practices around supply chain transparency. We need Congress to remove the regulatory cloud that exists so these responsible, ‘white hat’ companies can commercially thrive, while also giving regulators the tools they need to crack down on the bad actors.”

TraceGains has a long history of protecting consumers, manufacturers, and distributors by ensuring the highest level of transparency in safety and compliance. Earlier this year, TraceGains partnered with Australia-based Ecofibre, a global leader in hemp technologies, to drive standards and compliance in the hemp industry. Since then, TraceGains has launched projects with other hemp companies such as the Denver-based Mile High Labs and Portland, Oregon, based Healthy Roots Hemp Products.

About TraceGains
TraceGains delivers cloud-based supplier compliance, quality management, and new product development solutions for the CPG industry. At the heart of TraceGains is an advanced network platform that digitizes documentation, automates workflows, and streamlines processes.

MISS OLIVE FINDS HER FUREVER HOME WINS THE BRONZE 2019 MOONBEAM CHILDREN’S BOOK AWARD

First Book in Miss Olive’s Trilogy Awarded Bronze in Animals/Pets Fiction Category

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home, a children’s book about a rescue dog finding a loving home, was awarded the prestigious Moonbeam Bronze Award for the category of Animals/Pets (Fiction). Written by Susan Marie and Miss Olive herself, and Illustrated by Rebekah Phillips, the book is the first in a trilogy about Miss Olive’s adventures.

Recommended for ages four through nine, Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home teaches children an important lesson about life and what it means to be accepted for who you are. Through the Miss Olive book series, children learn that bringing a pet into a loving home can be an incredibly rewarding experience.

The Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards and Jenkins Group are proud to announce that Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home was chosen to receive an award from a total of 1,150 entries this year. Launched in 2007, the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children’s books and their creators. The awards celebrate children’s books and honor those who create the stories that encourage kids to foster a sense of wonder and a life-long love of reading.

“I’m so honored to be recognized by The Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards and Jenkins Group,” said author Susan Marie. “It also means so much to me that Miss Olive’s message of compassion and acceptance is reaching more children. We all want those things, not just humans, but animals as well.”

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home follows a little Italian Greyhound with three legs who is alone in an animal shelter. She dreams of being adopted by a loving family. On her journey to find her forever home, Miss Olive feels love and kindness from her foster mom and finds friendship with other animals who are waiting for adoption. One by one, all of the other dogs are adopted into happy families and Miss Olive begins to wonder if it will ever happen for her. She ultimately learns that dreams do come true.

About Susan Marie
For over fifteen years, Susan Marie has been spreading the word about puppy love through her nationally syndicated weekly radio show, The Doggy Diva Show. On her show, Susan interviews pet care experts, dog trainers, authors and representatives from animal rescue organizations. Past guests include Bob Barker, Dean Koontz, Julia Cameron, Alison Eastwood, and America's Veterinarian, Dr. Marty Becker. The Doggy Diva Show can be heard on Pet Life Radio, iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher and Speak Up Talk Radio.

Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home won the DWAA Maxwell Medallion for 2018 Children’s Book of the Year.

Susan is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators as well as the Dog Writer’s Association of America and the Florida Writers Association. A devoted champion of animals, Susan donates a portion of the proceeds from the Miss Olive book to various animal rescue services. She’s passionate about passing along the love of animals to future generations.

About Miss Olive:
Miss Olive Finds Her Furever Home is the first book in a trilogy about the adventures of Miss Olive, an Italian Greyhound rescue. The real Miss Olive was adopted in 2015 by author Susan Marie from Italian Greyhound ‎Rescue of the Gulf Coast. Miss Olive was a victim of neglect and health issues, having lost her teeth due to lack of medical attention and one of her legs to cancer. The neglect and illness that she experienced has never affected her loving, gentle spirit; she is always ready for a snuggle.

Miss Olive joins Susan Marie at the microphone each week as the co-host of the radio show, The Doggy Diva Show airing on Pet Life Radio. Along Florida’s Suncoast, the name Miss Olive is synonymous with the bringing together of homeless pets to loving families everywhere.

NEW GENTLE CRIME SERIES SET IN MALLORCA BUCKS THE TREND WITH A BALANCED, HAPPY, FEMALE SLEUTH

The Devil’s Horn front cover

Anna Nicholas, the author with the British Consul General & William Graves, son of famed writer Robert Graves at her launch

https://twitter.com/burrobooks

Unlike many female leads in popular crime fiction today, Isabel is happy and balanced.”

— Anna Nicholas

PALMA, MALLORCA, SPAIN, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Devil's Horn, the first in a gentle crime series by Anna Nicholas, the most prolific author writing about Mallorca today, introduces 33-year-old Isabel Flores Montserrat, an eccentric, fearless, lateral thinking sleuth who keeps a pet ferret and is addicted to sunflower seeds, Chupa Chup lollies ­ and calories.

Unlike many female leads in popular British crime fiction today, Isabel is happy and balanced. She loves her family and community, and her pampered hens. Best of all, she doesn't have any hang-ups. She lives in a mountain village in the idyllic northwest of Mallorca and indulges in good food and wine and goes swimming in the Mediterranean Sea at 6am every morning. Isabel eschews diets, self pity and doesn't suffer fools. She's not interested in fashion, time, social media or trending. Isabel's world is all about the good life and living for the moment.

A former detective, Isabel has turned her back on her old life, to run her widowed mother's ailing rentals agency in rural Mallorca. Suddenly her sunny, laid-back existence is turned upside down with the abduction of a young British girl from a popular tourist beach, murder of an elderly man in her village and emergence of a dangerous drug cartel.
