Spherical Block, LLC receives Phase II award for innovative masonry.

ALFRED, NEW YORK, USA, September 26, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — A start-up company has developed a concrete block system for making arches and domes that are affordable, energy efficient, hurricane and tornado proof, fire safe and sustainable for a much longer time period than current construction methods. Spherical Block, LLC was awarded its third grant by the National Science Foundation (NSF) for $750,000 to introduce this masonry system to the market.

“We are taking ancient technology and updating it for the 21st century” says company president and founder, Peter Roberts. “This masonry system can be used to make roofs, including arches, domes, flying buttresses and more.” The company was previously awarded a Phase I grant and a Phase IB grant for approximately $200,000 to test molds and improve the strength of the blocks.

This third NSF award will result in the block being allowed to enter the US and global market in two years. The work includes building new molds for the improved block, making block from these molds and building a test structure using these blocks for evaluation by the International Code Council – Evaluation Services (ICC-ES). ICC writes the International Building Code. The company is working with Southern Tier Concrete Products Corporation, where the test building will be made as a sales model. The internationally acclaimed design firm Studied Impact is already working on the architecture. This building will showcase several of the features made possible with this innovative masonry system; including domes, arches, flying buttresses and groined vault arches. Customers will be able to see and enter the building to experience what it would be like to live in one and learn about the many benefits the building has economically and ecologically.

Spherical’s concrete block designs are made by the same equipment that produces regular concrete block and use the same materials as regular block. The company’s molds are used on the block machines to make Spherical Block. The blocks are designed so that they can be assembled and reinforced with rebar. The company has been awarded two US patents and has more patents pending. Uses for this block include residential housing, commercial buildings, bridges, safe rooms (for tornadoes, hurricanes, and other severe weather), arched bridges, underwater structures (including coral reef incubators), landscaping applications, retaining walls, rainwater storage tanks, septic tanks, and much more. Most of the world builds primarily with masonry so the company anticipates a large demand for product internationally.

Southern Tier Concrete Products, Inc., is a family run business now in its 4th generation and 71st year, located in Alfred, NY. STCP began its operations making cinder blocks during the boom of building and development in the late 1940’s. Today STCP makes more than 100 different types of concrete blocks and retaining wall products. “STCP is excited to be working with Spherical Block and Robert Ferry in the continued development and showcase of new concrete building block technologies” said Owen Johnston, the company’s Chief Operating Officer.

Studied Impact Design will provide architectural services for the Phase II work and assist with designing this technology into contemporary architecture. Robert Ferry will be demonstrating the versatility of the block systems to create residential and commercial buildings. There is much to build in the aftermath of this hurricane season. Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, St. Martin, and many of the islands in the Caribbean have been devastated. There are plans for many large storm proof buildings in hurricane ravaged cities. “This technology builds them better and cheaper. And just as important, no major equipment is needed to assemble large buildings with these systems, buildings can be built with the resources these places have” Roberts says. Roberts has built several structures on his own property already. Spherical Block began this work in April, 2017 and expect work to be completed in 2019 at which point they can sell product for buildings around the world.

HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA REALTOR® GERALD “JERRY” BOURRELL EARNS MILITARY RELOCATION PROFESSIONAL (MRP) CERTIFICATION

I believe that the knowledge, skills, and experience gained through my Naval career have given me a heart to serve my community. ”

— Jerry Bourrell

HUNTSVILLE, ALABAMA, USA, September 25, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jerry Bourrell is an intelligent, well-informed and resourceful Associate Broker at Leading Edge Real Estate Group in Huntsville, Alabama.

Jerry grew up in Laurel, Mississippi and attended R.H. Watkins high school. His passion for the outdoors and his belief in service to others led him to the Boy Scouts of America. Recognized by his peers for service, leadership, and brotherhood, He was selected to become a member of Scouting’s National Honor Society, Order of the Arrow and achieved the rank of Eagle Scout. He says, “I believe the Scout Oath and Law were an integral part in forming who I became as an adult. My family has a proud tradition of serving our country in the Military and I wanted to continue that tradition, broaden my cultural understanding of the world, and continue my education.” He graduated from boot camp in the top ten percent of his class, gaining promotion prior to transferring.

The USS Abraham Lincoln was his first ship and he was assigned to the Oxygen and Nitrogen (O2N2) shop in Engineering. He stood out by quickly qualifying as a supervisor on the complex O2N2 generating system. A senior Non- Commissioned Officer normally holds this position with an advanced degree in cryogenics. Jerry requested special permission from the Commanding Officer to waive the rank and school requirements in order to qualify and after his tour on the ship, he transferred to Meridian Naval Air Station.

Once again, he was appointed to a supervisor position, being placed in charge of three sailors in the O2N2 shop. He seized the opportunity to purse his education and completed forty-four hours of college credit receiving his AA degree while simultaneously, completing an Emergency Medical Technician course and volunteering at a local fire department.

It was during this time, that Jerry met his wife and decided to transfer to Marine Corp Air Station Iwakuni, Japan. He had already visited Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai, and Australia and wanted to share the experience of learning about other countries and their cultures with his wife. Prior to their departure, Jerry attended an advanced engineering school on cryogenics, and air conditioning, refrigeration and graduated third out of thirty students.

Jerry supervised a team of nine American and Japanese workers producing oxygen and nitrogen on recently purchased O2N2 generating plants for the US and Japanese military. He created and developed personnel qualification standards, engineering operating procedures and strategic short and long- term preventative maintenance plans, which increased safety for the equipment and operators. He and his wife immediately immersed themselves into learning the Japanese culture, heritage, and language through classes at the University of Maryland. They enjoyed learning about the Japanese culture, and desired to continue expanding their international experience while representing America overseas. Their next opportunity was on board the USS La Salle in Gaeta, Italy, where he supervised and managed the Valve Shop, Oil Lab, Gauge Calibration Lab and maintained the ships repair parts inventory worth over $250, 000.00.

Jerry developed detailed written plans, using them to brief and lead a 25-man multinational team on the safe transfer of over 4 million gallons of fuel in port and at sea. Discovering a gap required certifications in the quality assurance program, which Jerry initiated and then implemented a command wide training program resulting in a successful review of the ships quality assurance program. After decommissioning the USS La Salle, he transferred to the USS George H.W.Bush.

Nine months after starting his new job, Jerry was selected “Sailor of the Year” for the ship, earning recognition as the top- rated sailor in his rank. Shortly thereafter, he was promoted to Chief Petty Officer and led forty-three sailors in six work centers, in the successful completion of 1,047 preventative and corrective maintenance items, including emergent repairs on three AC plants, one refrigeration unit, and one oxygen plant.

Jerry also volunteered to serve with the Army, conducting Detainee operations in Iraqi for a year. During this time, he managed and supervised 35 sailors and 45 Iraqi Correction Officers responsible for the care of over a thousand ideologically extreme, high-risk detainees. Upon his return, he transferred to the US Embassy in Rome, Italy to work in the Defense Attaché Office where he managed and directed five Italians in the administrative and operational support of six Attachées and two Liaison Officers. As the Diplomatic Clearances Program Manager, he supervised and obtained diplomatic clearances for four thousand eight hundred Military flights, over one thousand hazardous material flights, and over a hundred US ship visits by communicating and coordinating in Italian with the Italian Air Force and Navy.

Jerry also organized and coordinated distinguished visitor appointments to Italy, for the President and VP of the United States, two Ambassadors, four Congressional Delegations, The Secretary of Defense, The Secretary of State, and The Secretary of Navy, with multiple agencies involved.

Jerry says, “I believe that the knowledge, skills, and experience gained through my Naval career have given me a heart to serve my community.” His motto is: “Life is a Journey and a Pocket full of Memories and that if I can help someone put a Memory in their Pocket, then I done something worthwhile.”

After becoming a Real Estate agent, Jerry felt that is was very important to have the Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Certification. “You see, I fought for our way of life and the American Dream. When I retired, I wanted to find a way to help people reach the American Dream.”

As a Real Estate agent in Huntsville, Alabama, Jerry serves the areas around Redstone Arsenal including Decatur, Madison, Toney, Owens Cross Roads, New Market, Meridianville, Harvest and Hazel Green.

While many business owners are preparing for the holiday shopping season, real estate professionals are beginning to think of new ways to improve their businesses for the coming year.

Hayward states, “Marketing yourself as a Real Estate professional is one of the most important steps you need to take to build a hugely profitable business. But the old school ways are no longer working. At the 2018 Real Estate Launch Summit, you'll learn the new school marketing strategies that the top producers are using to (increase) their income ten-fold while creating more freedom in their lives.”

As if these three keynote speakers are not enough, the 2018 Real Estate Launch Summit also features other speakers including an All Star panel of Probate Attorneys and Top Producing Real Estate agents from SoCal.

EVENT LAUNCHES TRANSFORMATION TO SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS & ENERGY
2030 SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND PARIS ACCORD GOALS TARGETED

At the heart of the sustainability challenge—the buildings in which we live and work, and the energy they require, in large measure define development and the risk to sustainability”

— Ms. Amina J. Mohammed, United Nations Deputy Secretary-General

United Nations Deputy Secretary-General

Michael Moller
United Nations Office at Geneva Director-General

Scott Foster
UNECE Director of Sustainable Energy

Leaders from three United Nations offices will address the North American Passive House Network Passive + Renewables conference, October 6, in Oakland CA to outline a new initiative aiming at transforming the world’s built environment to historic high energy performance and quality. The goal is to open a new era in sustainable buildings and energy as a path to global sustainability. The strategy is based on the new Framework Guidelines for Energy Efficiency Standards in Buildings adopted by the UN Economic Commission for Europe. (See Framework document attached.)

Deputy Secretary General Ms. Amina J. Mohammed will address the opening session of the North American Passive House Network Passive + Renewables conference via video. UNOG Director General Michael Moller will address the session and take questions by live feed from Geneva. UNECE Sustainable Energy Director Scott Foster will oversee the session and address the conference in person. The event will underscore the importance of passive house design for a sustainable global future and the commitment of the United Nations to providing practical and effective leadership toward its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development now at the heart of the UN’s global strategy.

“The building-energy nexus is at the heart of the sustainability challenge—the buildings in which we live and work, and the energy they require, in large measure define development and the risk to sustainability,” said Ms. Mohammed. “We have relied on carbon for development. But innovations in building and energy science allow us to break that link. The building and energy professions can meet the challenge of sustainability. Now we must implement in ways that strengthen development, empower economies, and improve the quality of health and life enjoyed by all."

CINCINNATI, OHIO, UNITED STATES, September 24, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — CINCINNATI, OHIO, USA, June 25, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — List of Harmless Medicines and Advice on How to Avoid Harmful Medicines Online

CINCINNATI, OH, UNITED STATES, June 5, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pain is a condition that many of us have to deal with. A lot of Americans experience pain from different types of ache. It could be from a long term or a short term. Nonetheless, there are the pains which you would find very hard to overcome and thus a need to buy pain reliever online is certainly necessary. This thought makes them practical for patients who suffer sudden kind of pain and who aren’t able to tolerate it. Many of us are alone in the house and with no one to help us, we take refuge in the online market.

However, there are a lot of risks when you buy painkillers online overnight. The fact that there has been a lot caught by the Drug Enforcement Agency in the country because of selling fake medicines have been going around for ages and there are some medicines which are eventually fake. On the other hand, because of its quick and easy transaction, many still prefer to get medicines online. Sometimes the need to go to a physical pharmacy is daunting enough for a sick person, hence a simple painkiller would suffice the pain.

List of Harmless Painkillers

Celebrex. This is a painkiller which takes away the pain from inflammation, swelling, arthritis and stiffness remedy. This is said to be nonsteroidal inflammatory thus preventing the production of the prostaglandin. It is something responsible for the pain and swell you would feel.

Fioricet.Another harmless painkiller which is best for headaches. This is a mixture from acetaminophen, butalbital and caffeine and thus together would help prevent the tension that the patient is experiencing.

Too Much Noise in Today’s Workplace

Too much noise in today’s open office

Industry best noise cancelling, speech recognition microphone

Irritating noise can come from all kinds of sources, especially—from other people’s voices.

the annual cost to Europe from excessive noise levels is estimated at £30 billion. With over 70% of offices now open plan, with little to no worker segregation – think of all that lost productivity.”

— The World Health Organisation

NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — What do hypertension, sleep disorders, cardiovascular disease, impaired cognition and being annoyed have in common? All are possible outcomes of too much noise around us. Many people complain about noise, but fewer realize how harmful it can be. Turns out, hearing loss and ailments such as the ringing ears of tinnitus aren’t the only things we should worry about. Evidence of the non-auditory effects of noise on health is growing, too.

In offices, irritating noise can come from all kinds of sources: air conditioning, obnoxious ringtones, traffic, nearby construction, unsophisticated sound-masking systems and—especially—from other people’s voices, says Julian Treasure, chairman of a United Kingdom-based consultancy, The Sound Agency. Noisy environments tend to only get worse over time, because people start speaking louder as it gets noisier around them (known as the Lombard effect).

Being constantly alert to our environment, and noise easily makes us uneasy. Lab studies on humans as well as animals have shown that exposure to noise arouses the nervous system, causing rising blood pressure and the release of stress hormones. Over time, these instinctive responses can stress the cardiovascular system and give rise to negative outcomes such as anger and exhaustion.

Without an effective acoustical solution, experts say, the negative impacts of day-to-day noise in many office environments can also be significant.

“Cognitively, there is plenty of research now that shows that the most destructive sound of all is other people’s conversations,” agrees Treasure. “We have bandwidth for roughly 1.6 human conversations. So, if you’re hearing somebody’s conversation, then that’s taking up 1 of your 1.6. Even if you don’t want to listen to it, you can’t stop it: You have no ear lids. And that means you’ve just .6 left to listen to your own inner voice.”

The noise level of 60-65 decibels that’s common in some open-plan offices is not only too loud for concentration, it can also impede effective collaboration by causing speech interference. The sound level of speech is about 60 decibels if people talk to one another, in normal tones without raising their voices, at a distance of about one meter (3 ¼ feet). This means any other noise within that same range—someone else talking nearby, for instance—can cause speech interference, so not all the words may be fully heard. “Nevertheless, a sentence may be understood because of cortical processing. This, however, is an active process that may cause reaction leading to adverse effects in the longer run of chronic noise exposure.”
In other words, in noisy environments with poor acoustics, workers can as easily get stressed by trying to hear others as by trying not to hear others—a lose/lose proposition.

The World Health Organization estimates that the annual cost to Europe from excessive noise levels is £30 billion. With over 70% of offices now open plan, with little to no worker segregation – think of all that lost productivity.

If you think the acoustic environment in your office could be harming employee productivity and well being, you don’t have to shell out tens of thousands of dollars. Consider a practical solution to reducing noise levels in your space that can be implemented immediately at little cost.

The Praetorian Group Taps Expanse/Tokenlab for ICO Management in New York State’s First Ever Crowd-Funded Token Sale

The PAX Token is a Unique Cryptocurrency Backed by Real Assets

Expanse is the first and most enduring fork of Ethereum. Combining that record of stability with their recent successful launch of Tokenlab made Expanse the obvious partner of choice.”

— Gerard Marrone, Praetorian Group Co-Founder and CEO

WASHINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, September 21, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Key Facts:
• Tokenlab™ is a token-creation and ICO management services platform that runs on the Expanse.Tech™ blockchain.
• The Praetorian Group, headquartered in Hong Kong, is focused on creating a token (PAX), backed by real and tangible assets, to help revitalize blighted communities in New York State.
• PAX provides the opportunity for investors to own a percentage of the New York real estate market.

WASHINGTON, NC – The Expanse.Tech Project today announced that The Praetorian Group will launch its ICO using Tokenlab, a decentralized ICO management platform created by Borderless Corp., Inc., on the Expanse.Tech blockchain.

The Praetorian Group bridges two major industries – real estate and blockchain – and is currently developing the first sound cryptocurrency investment trust. Led by seasoned real estate and legal professionals, they employ a compassionate capital investment model with a focus on changing peoples’ lives while revitalizing blighted communities in New York City and New York State. Their token, PAX, is an ERC20 token using smart contracts on the Expanse blockchain. PAX token-holders will see an infusion of capital from the crowd sale into real estate investments in lower income properties that are set to increase in value almost immediately. The investments can be monitored on the Praetorian web site, http://www.praetoriangroup.io.

“The Praetorian Group’s vision for bringing cryptocurrency and blockchain technology into the daily lives of individuals around the world is an attractive value proposition for Tokenlab and Expanse,” said Christopher J. Franko, Borderless Corp., Inc. CEO and Expanse Co-founder. “The idea of infusing new money into depressed housing areas through the trust and transparency of blockchain technology is a tokenization utility that we are thrilled to bring to life using Tokenlab.”

“As our investment model using the PAX token on the blockchain was taking shape, we were also surveying the landscape for trusted technology partners in the space,” said Gerard Marrone, Praetorian Group Co-Founder and CEO. “Expanse is the first and most enduring fork of Ethereum. Combining that record of stability with their recent successful launch of Tokenlab made them the obvious partner of choice.”

While this initiative is fast approaching implementation, The Praetorean Group is already planning a Phase 2 of the project, which involves fast, safe and secure cryptocurrency transfer peer-to-peer. Watch for an announcement of their crowd sale on Tokenlab coming soon.
