My dad was a U.S. Army Military Veteran who served in World War II and the Korean War and I wanted to follow in his footsteps by serving our great nation.”

— Edward Besecky

COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA, USA, January 23, 2018 / — Edward “Ed” Besecky is a charismatic and well-informed Real Estate Agent at Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Cocoa Beach, Florida.

Ed graduated from the United States Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, New York in 1982. He says, “My dad was a U.S. Army Military Veteran who served in World War II and the Korean War and I wanted to follow in his footsteps by serving our great nation.” After graduation, Ed was commissioned as an officer (Ensign) in the US Naval Reserves (USN-R), proudly serving for 11 years and reaching the rank of Lieutenant.

Starting in 1982, Ed worked for the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) for 31 years. He says, “I was an International Program Manager and worked closely with military for the nations of Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Philippines, Japan, Korea, Afghanistan, and Germany during the later stages of his career.” In the early stages, Ed was a Maritime Analyst and production line supervisor.

As a U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) entity, Ed worked closely with the DoD and major foreign allies – standardizing and exchanging maps – making sure the foreign partner conformed to US/NATO standards. He was responsible for providing his foreign partners with the latest, updated maps. “I was in charge of making sure their mapping was in accordance with the United States policy, guidance and direction for my specific country.” Ed deployed to SW Asia in support of the programs that he managed.

One of Ed’s favorite projects was when he deployed for nine months working on a research ship in partnership with the Naval Oceanographic Office. This research ship collected sediment samples from the bottom of the ocean then researched, analyzed it and mapped it. “We needed to know what the bottom of the ocean was made of.” The ship also collected magnetic, bathymetric, and hydrographic data for U.S. Government use. The analysis of ocean data makes it possible to understand the ocean in new and exciting ways.

Ed was working in the Electronic Navigation Division at DMA when he met his wife, Karen, who was also working at DMA. They began socializing, became best friends, fell in love and married in 1987. Ed and Karen are now both licensed realtors for Coldwell Banker in Cocoa Beach, FL. Together they have two sons, Jason and Brett. Jason graduated from the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs and is currently a Captain in the U.S. Air Force. Brett followed his parent’s footsteps and pursued a career in Real Estate with them.

Brett says, “I knew at the age of 4 that I wanted to be a fighter pilot. My grandfather was in the Air Force and my other grandfather was in the Korean War. I loved to hear all of his Military stories and watch old Army movies with him. I have the most immense respect for those who serve our country. My brother went to the Air Force Academy and I’ve always looked up to him. He knows the answer to everything and I consider him to be the smartest person on the planet and has the truest of hearts. Personally, I have always had two loves; salesmanship and traveling. I have a way with words and I love immersing myself through different cultures. My parents took us on vacations all over the world and I am so in awe of that. I’m honored and appreciative of that experience. Right now, I’m studying at Eastern Florida State College to complete my Bachelor’s Degree in Sales and Marketing. In Real Estate and I negotiate with my client’s best interest in mind. It takes a tenacious agent to get the right home for their client. I would like to have a family of my own one day with someone who shares the same entrepreneurial spirit as I do, where we grow it, trim it and nurture it together. After my world travels, I want to settle down with someone special. I want quality. I need someone who has the ability to see life 20 years into the future.”

Ed is extremely proud of his family. He says. “We’re a Military family, through and through. We idolize and adore our Military community here near Patrick Air Force Base and I earned my Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Certification to be of service to our local Veterans and relocating Active-Duty families.”

Focus on the right camera at the right time

ELERTS advances state-of-the-art in video monitoring

Advances state-of-the-art in video monitoring

With ELERTS ‘Attention Engine’ video camera integration, the DART Say Something mobile app can immediately show DART police which camera is nearby a security incident, enhancing the use of cameras.”

— James D. Spiller, Chief of Police and Emergency Management at DART

WEYMOUTH, MA, UNITED STATES, January 23, 2018 / — ELERTS Attention Engine, a video surveillance trigger technology, has received a patent for its unique method of finding the needle in a haystack of cameras, i.e. showing the specific camera pointed at an active crime, safety or security incident. As the leading provider of See Something Say Something mobile apps for transit agencies in North America, ELERTS technology processes thousands of crowd-sourced security incident reports submitted by passengers each month. ELERTS “Attention Engine” instantly compares the GPS from a smartphone report to a database of camera locations to find and display the camera nearest to a security incident.

Surveillance cameras are everywhere. Yet, ninety nine percent of surveillance footage is never watched because there are too many cameras to monitor. Studies show that when trying to watch surveillance camera feeds, operator fatigue occurs in under 20 minutes and attention wanders and accuracy suffers. ELERTS Attention Engine brings important new functionality to CCTV networks, allowing cameras to be used for real-time crime interception and enhanced situation awareness, versus simply recording video for after-the-incident forensic purposes.

"DART has a lot of surveillance cameras to help keep people safe on our transit system. However, it is not possible for a police dispatcher to watch every camera all the time. With ELERTS ‘Attention Engine’ video camera integration, the DART Say Something mobile app can now immediately show DART police which camera is nearby a security incident, enhancing the use of cameras beyond just recording video evidence,” said James D. Spiller, Chief of Police and Emergency Management at Dallas Area Rapid Transit Police. “This is a real breakthrough in safety and security, enabling transit police to find the needle in the haystack of cameras and more quickly respond to an incident.”

“Cameras alone can’t tell you when a crime is happening unless a human is actively watching. For the most part, surveillance video has been mainly used for investigations and forensic evidence of crimes or events that have ended. We’re changing all of that,” said Ed English, CEO, ELERTS. “Our See Say apps empower people to easily report something when they see something. Combined with our Attention Engine video technology, these apps can now help stop a crime in progress. Technology plus human intuition makes video surveillance smarter.”

ELERTS develops best-in-class emergency communication software, empowered by community-sourced reporting of safety and security concerns. The company is the leading provider to transit agencies for See Something Say Something apps. ELERTS cloud-based approach leverages smartphone technologies to provide robust, bidirectional communication between multiple parties. ELERTS mobile technology integrates with video surveillance, access control and mass-notification systems to provide actionable crowd-sourced information for first responders.

The building’s seller, U.S. Bank, will continue to lease space in the building.

“We are drawn by Boulder’s supportive environment for small businesses,” Bennett said. “The city’s strong economic growth and diverse mix of entrepreneurs makes it an ideal place for a Level Office location.”

Artificial Trees That Could Power A Home Or Replace Wind And Solar Farms

Tech Meets Art In A life-like ‘Energy Tree’ With e-leaves That Suck Up Sunshine And Quiver In The Breeze To Produce Solar And Wind Power.

We Need Energy Miracles”

— Bill Gates

LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 22, 2018 / — The 16ft solar/wind tree can generate nearly three times the electricity an average family uses in a year and could completely change how we power homes.

It works as a giant solar panel and wind turbine, so the stronger the sun and the windier the day, the more power it produces.

“We wanted the leaves to look like leaves, so we used a green plasma coated solar cell,” said Dr Zahir Dehouche at Brunel University London. “The idea is for people to see a leaf. It’s very attractive, an art installation almost that combines design and an energy system.”

Design and engineering students developed the tree concept and tested the e-leaves prototype for London-based renewable energy start-up, Solar Botanic.

Inspired by nature, its e-leaves are a thin sunlight-activated photovoltaic film, cocooned in protective green layer flexible enough to shimmer in the breeze. The branches, twigs and leafstalks are laced with high-resistance piezoelectric ribbons that harvest kinetic energy as they move, so sunlight, raindrops and wind all create energy.

Electricity would go straight into homes through underground cables. Leftover power can be stored in batteries and sold to the national grid and makers can also fit the recyclable trunk with street lights, or pack it with generators to charge electric cars, mobile phones and even robots.

Installed alongside new-build homes, they could raise property values by 20 per cent by removing the need for heavy solar panels, envisions Dr Dehouche.

With brighter sunlight, the tree would be extra efficient for developing countries, where it could help with power cuts triggered by spikes in demand.

The team sees the sturdy, organic structures enhancing high streets, sea fronts and business parks. “The tree is a sculpture that invites people to connect with renewable energy,” said design and industrial technology graduate, Elise Hounslow. “It shows green energy doesn’t have to be ugly or intrusive, it can be beautiful and make us feel positive about changing our ways for a brighter future.”

Solar Botanic aims to start building its first proper full-scale tree towards the middle of the year and is looking for industry partners to help accelerate the manufacture and distribution of the finished product.

23-Year-Old Makes First Own Home Purchase With The Help Of Rudy L. Kusuma’s Home Selling Team

Danisa and Johnny

A young professional, Johnny Ta, at 23 years old made his very first own home purchase with the help of Rudy L. Kusuma’s Home Selling Team!

I just thought it was the right time and right thing to do at this point of my life”

— Johnny Ta

ROSEMEAD, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 19, 2018 / — In an online article, "Young adults want to buy homes but can’t afford them", Gaillot talks about how “Millennial homeownership decline is much sharper in certain parts of the country than others”. According to a report made based on recent census data, statistics shows that compared to other parts of the US, millennials in their early 20’s in the state of California are less likely to be homeowners. The amount of young adult homeowners have decreased in the state of California in the past decade.

Ye, a 23 year old working professional living in San Gabriel Valley quotes that she hasn’t thought about purchasing a home during this time. “Usually people in their late 20’s purchase homes,” Ye makes a point about young homeowners being in their late twenties.

Johnny Ta, 23 years old working as a Credit Analyst for Wells Fargo, visited a open house showing in La Puente one weekend during his search for a house. Ta was able to meet Danisa Peralta, a Selling partner with Rudy L. Kusuma’s Home Selling Team.

“Right when I met Johnny, I knew he was a go getter “ says Danisa before making the move to help Ta.

“In fifteen years of working in this industry, Johnny is the only client I’ve helped that’s under 25 years old,” says Danisa.

Prior to meeting Danisa, Ta had already seen two other houses and found the La Puente property to be the house that fit his criteria perfectly. However, the house had already received 9 other offers. With the help of Danisa and Rudy’s Home Selling Team, Ta was able to put in a last minute offer and beat his competing offers. As mentioned before, there is a low percentage of young adults in their early 20’s making a big decision like Ta. For Ta, purchasing a new home was not only a big decision but also an investment. Due to Rudy’s Home Selling Team and their honest and open communication, Danisa and the team was able to help a young working professional complete a huge milestone in his life.
