What One African American Veteran’s Gift of Hope and Opportunity is Doing to Create Jobs for His Fellow Veterans And Non Veterans Alike!

LIGHTNING RELEASES (11/26/2014)— What would you do if you were disabled and then honorably discharged from the Military? Would you take a bow, graciously acknowledge you’ve served your country, completed your Tour of Duty to the best of your ability, and now comfortably (or not) relax while relying on others to take care of you?

Would you live in the past, bound by all kinds of anxieties and fears, angry and frustrated with society and the state you find yourself in; or in the present, bound by boundless challenges and obstacles, all as your now less-than-normal life goes on without you and your former self?

Or would you heed the call, and honor the request, of your Commanding Officer’s final parting words?

Well, instead of admitting defeat and giving up, that is what Jeff Powell did, and this is his story:

Jeff was stationed in California, serving the US Navy Seabees when he became disabled, and upon his discharge, his Commanding Officer made a final, parting request. He asked Jeff to continue supporting Military men and women, as well as his future veterans.

Jeff accepted this challenge gladly, committed wholeheartedly, and helping others has now become his life’s mission. Even after he became disabled, having to deal with his disability, and pulling through other hardships such as becoming homeless, readjusting to society, and caring for his ailing mother, Jeff’s CO’s words remained clear to him.

Jeff’s Inspiration and Vision

Jeff immediately became a Verified Veteran Supporter and established www.VerifiedSupporter.com, a non-profit organization, resource, and a community forum and blog for all matters Veteran; and then another website called Entrepreneur Inside at www.entrepreneurinside.us, which is a helpful resource to launching a successful business, Jeff’s book is available for sale and proceeds go to worthy Veteran causes.

Then, keen to improve his education after returning to civilian life, Jeff soon exhausted his book stipend, because of the exorbitantly restrictive cost of books. Knowing there must be SO many books out there that someone else could be using more productively, and rather than give up and be a burden to society, Jeff decided to hire a team of professionals to build a website that would cater specifically to the needs of his Veteran college students, as well as to help alleviate the astronomical cost of text books that so negatively affect them all.

So Jeff created Books4Veterans.com (coming soon!), as the perfect place for Veterans and all college students alike, to buy good used books, and to donate or sell their books. Books4Veterans aims to make the further studies and self-improvement efforts of our Veterans a little easier, and a whole lot more affordable; while showing gratitude to those who served our country, and to take a stand and lend a hand to those who’ve helped make our freedoms possible.

Then, realizing there were SO many other ways he could serve his fellow Veteran and his community at the same time, Jeff expanded his vision and created many other supportive websites, resources, forums and societies for Veterans.

Jeff’s “4Veterans” Initiatives

The “4Veterans” concept is Jeff’s brainchild, or rather heart-child, and his mission is simple: To bring people together – Business, Government, Veterans, all Americans – to help and support each other. Jeff says: “Together, we can all lend a hand and weather any crisis!”

Apart from Books4Veterans, Jeff has dedicated his life to developing many other projects, or ‘hobbies’ as he prefers to call them, for the greater good of all Military Veterans, their families and their communities. As a shining testimony to his unconditional commitment, and his incredible motivation and drive, here’s a list of all the worthy Veteran initiatives Jeff has pioneered to date:

* Running4Veterans (www.running4veterans.com)
* Verified Veteran Supporter – (www.facebook.com/verifiedveteransupporter)
* Entrepreneur Inside – (www.entrepreneurinside.us)

Jeff is now intent on giving back and helping the greater Veteran community throughout the United States, especially when comes to books to further their studies and improve their lives, and other resources that unite and inspire communities, throughout the country.

Jeff says: “Serving the community is a state of mind, the kind of passion that carries you day-to-day, and that is what drives me every day throughout this journey.”

With Jeff’s tireless energy and unconditional commitment to helping his fellow man, his 4 Veterans initiatives go the extra mile by providing a supportive community service that helps alleviate some of the challenges and obstacles encountered by Veterans and non-Veterans alike.

Although Jeff still faces many challenges, both in his personal life and with his disability, he is one of the most courageous, motivated and dedicated people supporting Veterans in the United States today. Jeff truly has the passion for, and a deep insight of, what it takes to help his fellow Veterans, all while showing unconditional support for the Department of Veteran Affairs.

And there is a bittersweet twist in Jeff’s life story. Shortly after Jeff’s son Jeremiah was born (April 19) Jeff lost his Mother to a prolonged illness on Independence Day this year, July the 4th 2014. Jeff was unwavering at her side to the end, and his Mother, an avid Veteran Supporter, left Jeff a final request too: “Keep up your good work, my son. I just as other Veterans are very grateful for you!”

Jeff is now more inspired than ever, to help and serve.

Spud Spikes Has Launched a New Line of Tender Meat Snacks on the Worldwide Crowdfunding Platform IndieGoGo

LIGHTNING RELEASES: SPOKANE, Wash. (11/26/2014) – Spud Spikes® has launched a new line of Gourmet Tender Meat Snacks under the Burly Babe brand.

Owner Leon Frechette created this product, which he is very proud of, by blending his Spud Spikes original seasoning with local high-quality meats. The Tender Meat Snacks are packaged in both a stick and bite-sized configuration.

He uses a “skinless” process to give the Tender Meat Snacks a more authentic feel. This process provides a deeper smoking result and cleaner bites, and it eliminates a tough or chewy casing.

The new snack is a 60/40 blend of beef and pork. They do this for two reasons: First, it adds moisture to the meat snacks, which creates a smooth texture. Secondly, the pork distributes the flavor of the seasoning better than an all-beef product, so the overall taste is stunning.

Only ground chuck that is graded choice or better and high-quality pork shoulder is used in this product. Unlike most meat snacks, Burly Babe does not use fillers, low-quality meat cuts or organs. This provides a consistent product and the best transfer of flavor throughout the meat snack.

The Tender Meat Snacks are made of regionally grown beef so the butcher can control the quality of beef they receive. The beef has no growth hormones or antibiotics. If local meat is not available, the butcher will use U.S.-grown beef from packing plants with the highest reputation for meat quality, meat safety and humane animal-handling policies. The butcher uses a small-batch production to ensure a consistent, high-quality product. Each batch undergoes several quality-control inspections for flavor and packaging. They operate in a “hands-on” plant with limited automation, thus producing a handcrafted product second to none.

You will love the texture and unique flavor of these Gourmet Tender Meat Snacks. They go great with cheese, apples, grapes, crackers and many other snacks.

At the November 2014 Man Show in Spokane, Wash., they tested their Burly Babe Tender Meat Snacks and nearly sold out of their first batch. The rest of the inventory went to the retailers they landed from the show, and more stores are still coming in!

They have a great product, but had no idea how well their meat snacks would be received by the public. You can help them with their IndieGoGo campaign by pre-ordering the 3-oz. Burly Babe Tender Meat Sticks, with free U.S. shipping, for only $10. On top of that, they will donate $1 from every $10 perk to local services that assist in homeless prevention. Please check out the campaign at goo.gl/rLv2gF.

Great for road trips, the outdoors, work or just snacking, Burly Babe Gourmet Tender Meat Snacks are designed to amaze! So Burl Up & Try Us!

Female African- American who Claims Invention of the Internet sets Record Straight

LIGHTNING RELEASES (11/26/2014) – Ferguson , Missouri is only a microcosm of the state of racism in the nation . ABFY SELLERS GROUP CEO alleges that her claims to the Internet are not a joke or a “hoax” , but that she is held back by blatant racism and oppression . Dorothy M. Hartman  holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Penn State University in Biology and Physical Science Education  and a Master’s Degree in Biology and Chemistry Education from the University of Pennsylvania . She worked as a Science Teacher for the City of Philadelphia , Pa. for about 24 years , 5 of those years spent working also as a Science Instructor in the Temple University Bio-Medical Sciences Program.  Her resume also includes having worked for Trenton , New Jersey Board of Education both as a Science Teacher and a member of its Science Curriculum Committee developing a Science curriculum for the schools . Other job experiences include working for the City of Philadelphia mostly in its summer programs, John Wanamaker Department Store in Sales and Gimbels Department Store in their Advertising Department for about 6 years . The latter is probably where she developed her interest in entrepreneurship . She claims a huge role in invention of the Internet and in Internet timelines .

Inventor shares the release of a copy of her Brief for a Petition for Writ of Certiorari denied by the United States Supreme Court in November 2013 . The Appendix has been removed and portions have been blotted out to preserve privacy concerns. View the Brief filed to the U.S. Supreme Court here at http://www.TelecomStraightTalk.com .After early retirement from teaching in 1990 due to illness and handicap – she tried her hand at entrepreneurship .  She had already begun inventing around 1977  with her first patent granted in 1979 , a Safety Shield for Stoves and Ranges .  A list of her patents and patent applications are listed below . After attending some courses at the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science while on Sabbatical in the late 1980’s , the inventor learned about the existing telecom industry including basic courses in computer language and some history of the industry . Find out more about the Inventor’s humble background and beginnings here  at Homemade Video of Inventor’s Personal Bio . She had a burgeoning career before having to retire early due to the onset of a debilitating illness at age 24 brought on by a near fatal bout of Asian flu and injury to her inner ear . She developed a functional nervous disorder and other complications but managed to teach for 25 years before retiring . Below are her patents , patent applications , and publications .

U.S. Patent No. 4155343 , Safety Device for Stoves and Ranges

U.S. Patent No. 6553589 , Infant Basket for Side Sleeping Support , previously self-filed in 1998 .

U.S. Patent Application No.11/003,123 Accessing Accessibility Method ( proposed transformation of previous telecommunication structures ), filed March 7, 2004

Published September 7 , 2006

U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 60/773,092 , Infant Auto Seat with Guards

March 2004 , Previous self- filed patent application in 1998.

U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 60/878,310 Airplane Landing Pad with Fire Retardant

U.S. Patent Application : Method(s) to Scrub Greenhouse Gases from the Atmosphere

PCT Application 19, March 2007 , No. PCT/US2007/010293 , U.S. Application No.12/448,310 .

She had graduated from Penn State having just turned 21 years of age and in 1990 when she submitted proposals for ideas which resulted in today’s Internet was only aged 46 .  She alleges that although impaired by a handicap that she was full of energy and turned her attention to inventing and trying to run a business from home . Thus the seeds of the modern day Internet , which some in the business refer to as Internet 2 were sown .  The prior Internet ( 1 ) had hit a snag .  The 1987 Internet which had consisted of mini “nets” adjunct to a common backbone referred to as the Arpanet and had an altogether different structure from the modern day Internet was defunct by 1989 and had been parked as the NSFnet – under the auspices and care of the National Science Foundation .

Enter Hartman’s ideas in 1990 . See Cover pages here http://www.TelecomStraightTalk.com/first-to-invent-and-first-to-file/ for one of her proposals submitted through the SBIR or Small Business Innovation Research Program. Hartman submitted 3 similar to 3 different federal government agencies , U.S. Small Business Administration , PA. Department of Commerce , and Benjamin Franklin Technology Center . The National Science Foundation is the ultimate recipient  of entries to the Program. It , the NSF reviews proposals , and decides grants and funding . She entered her proposals to obtain funding for her at home business , a prototype telecommunications services business .  She conceived ideas of how to work from home using telecommunications to provide services such as the exchange of goods , services , and information online . She shared these ideas and the immense benefits that it would have in building commerce and the economy . Hartman submitting her proposals to the government on how to change the structure and improve Telecom by Commercializing it . Her intellectual property made the difference between a telecom industry that essentially had come to an end and the transformation which produced a successful industry .

Although the Petition for Writ of Certiorari filed by the Inventor objecting to the Appeals Court for the Federal Circuits Opinion rendered March 8 , 2013 in Dorothy M. Hartman vs. U.S. Patent and Trademark Office  , she has since filed a Petition for Writ of Mandamus in May 2014 which the Court is scheduled to consider in Conference on December 5 , 2014 . She has spoken out on Net Neutrality and she claims the FCC knows the facts about her claims . Thus far , the Inventor alleges that the Justice System has let her down as facts and evidence in the form of affidavits , documents , and the event timeline in history support her claims .  She feels that she is being intentionally discriminated against because of her race and the intentional theft of her intellectual property by the oligarchs because the Internet is the most prolific , powerful and wealthy invention of the 20th century . Inventions are rarely created from scratch , but inventions and patents can also be granted for transformation [changing a thing from one state of being to another state of being ]. However as the events in Ferguson, Missouri and all around the country show , the rule of law does not mean much when the rights of Blacks are considered . Rather than Rule of Law , the rules are apparently made up “as you go “ – in a rather ad hoc fashion to make the events fit the desired outcome .

She says , ” I rue the day that I ever shared my intellectual property with the government . That Patent Office has been a place where my ideas have been fraudulently handed over to corporations and I never receive any compensation . Just labeled “13” while they rob me of everything that I have worked for over a lifetime .  Such is the state of civil rights in this nation .  There may be more blacks on T.V. and a Black president who really is Biracial , but there is no justice nor truth for African-Americans . The new Jim Crow is fraud , hypocrisy, and flim-flam politics . Blacks disenfranchised today , Others tomorrow. “  Read more at her blog , Telecom Straight Talk .

Happy Thanksgiving, from TTR

LIGHTNING RELEASES: McMinnville, OR (11/26/2014)-  Transaction Tax Resources, Inc. (TTR) is in the business of helping people. The people TTR focuses on helping are those trusted to get sales and use tax right. These professionals have one thing in common: they want to get it right, and they won’t stop until it is right.

Sales and use tax professionals are among the most dedicated in any field. The product of the tax department is a correctly filed tax return. Arriving at this product is a challenge. Tax professionals must be experts on everything in order to do their jobs.

Sales and use tax professionals have to understand every product and service sold by their companies. They also have to understand every product and service purchased by their companies. They have to be product experts, understand everything about their industry, and also know as much about what is bought as procurement does. This is all just step ONE.

Next, sales and use tax professionals have to be master researchers. Unlike other areas of tax, sales and use tax consists of forty-six (46) sets of tax laws, regulations, cases, and rulings. Sales and use tax professionals must know how best to find a law that tells them how to tax the product or service that was purchased or sold by their company.

Next, sales and use tax professionals have to be accountants. They have to ensure that every dollar collected by the company gets recorded into the correct General Ledger account and know where to get those numbers for tax return filings. They have to reconcile these accounts in order to ensure that the company is getting the right amount of tax to every state, county, city, and special locality.

Next, sales and use tax professionals have to be masters of time management, coordination, and last-minute problem solving. Between month-end close and tax return due dates, tax professionals have just days to get the information from accounting, fill out all the necessary forms, and get them to the states on time. It is a one-time shot. Missing it means the loss of discounts, rebates, and sometimes tens of thousands of dollars.

Next, sales and use tax professionals have to be negotiators and patient stewards and advocates for the company as states come to audit. Information must be gathered as a third party asks about everything done by the professionals. Complex issues arise, necessitating quick and accurate responses. Audits are challenging and can feel invasive – after all, many of us don’t enjoy having someone looking over our shoulder.

Finally, sales and use tax professionals have to do it all over again – every day of every month. One might ask, why would an attorney or accountant or anyone chose this line of work? They want to. They want to get it right. They want to understand it all. They want to provide value to the organization. They want to have a fundamental understanding of everything done in the company. They want to help others. They want to get the state the money that should go to the state. They want to.

Wow. Really? Yes.

These are sales and use tax professionals. Almost no one knows what they do. Almost no one stops by to say “thank you.” So, this holiday season (and hopefully more often), please join us in saying THANK YOU to our sales and use tax professionals!

Thank you for caring more than we ever know. Thank you for getting it right.

At the FT Conference in London, electroCore CEO, JP Errico, emphasizes the importance of early collaboration with patients group, providers, and payors when introducing innovative technologies

LIGHTNING RELEASES (11/25/2014) – JP Errico, founder and CEO of electroCore, speaking at The FT Global Pharmaceutical and Biotechnology Conference in London last week, emphasized the importance of working with each of the major stakeholders, i.e., patients and their advocates, key opinion-leading physicians, and decision-makers within the payor community at the earliest opportunity, particularly in regards to innovative and disruptive technology such as electroCore’s non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation (nVNS).

While participating on a panel exploring “Navigating The Next Frontiers of Medicine” JP explained how electroCore has undertaken detailed discussions with all three groups, and focused special attention on the critical importance of engaging with payors, explaining how electroCore is working across Europe and the US to ensure payors understand the benefits of their non-invasive neurostimulation technology, and the clinical and financial implications of their new treatment option.

JP elaborated after the conference, “By exposing the stakeholders, and in particular those who determine the placement of new therapies into the continuum of care through their reimbursement approval processes, to the potential therapeutic and economic impact of non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation, we believe that all participants can make informed and rational decisions. In the case of electroCore’s practical, patient-centric delivery technology of this broadly applicable neuromodulation therapy, the potential to dramatically alter the equation for managing chronic conditions from primary headache, to gastric motility disorders, to anxiety and depression has been appealing to healthcare providers, who are overwhelmed by the time demands associated with caring for these patients, and payors that are burdened with paying for treatments that are typically less than effective.”  

Errico further emphasized the importance of big data as a crucial resource to be mined as part of the dialogue. “Big datasets are like natural resources; they are most valuable when extracted and purified. The value of big data is realized through the quality of our queries. Intelligent interrogation provides the novel and useful insights that are derived from big data.”

Returning to his original point, Errico challenged the audience and the rest of the panel to continue building coalitions among medical experts, the patient advocacy groups, and the payors based on hard data. “It is undeniable that innovation has to be a pivotal piece of the solution to the problem of our escalating costs of healthcare. But just as innovation, such as our non-invasive vagus nerve stimulation, holds the promise of safer and more effective patient care, new treatments can be disruptive to markets. Potential disruption can be intimidating, and so gaining broad support from all interested parties is critical to realizing the promise of innovation, and that support only comes when the truth is socialized through honest sharing and critical review of real world data.”

electroCore has developed non-invasive Vagus Nerve Stimulation (nVNS) self-administered therapies for the treatment of multiple conditions in neurology, psychiatry, gastroenterology and respiratory fields. The company’s initial focus is on the treatment of primary headaches (migraine and cluster headache), and the associated chronic co-morbidities of gastric motility, psychiatric, sleep, and pain disorders that drive disproportionately large direct and indirect costs within the healthcare system and society.
