Tanya Bless shares benefits of life in Palm Beach Gardens

Local real estate agent Tanya Bless explains growing demand for real estate in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLORIDA, USA, October 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Famed for its beautiful scenery, golf courses, lush tree-lined streets, and much more, Palm Beach Gardens is located just a few short miles north of West Palm Beach. With demand for real estate in Palm Beach Gardens growing, local real estate professional Tanya Bless explains several of the many benefits of life in the city.

"Palm Beach Gardens is famed for its lush, tree-lined streets and abundant tropical greenery," explains Tanya Bless, a specialist in real estate in Jupiter, Singer Island, Palm Beach Gardens, and Palm Beach Country Estates.

An immaculate area of South Florida, Palm Beach Gardens, established in 1959, has been nicknamed 'The Golf Capital of the World' by locals and visitors to the city alike. "The city's motto, 'A Unique Place to Live, Learn, Work, and Play,' sums up Palm Beach Gardens perfectly," adds Bless.

Properties in Palm Beach Gardens range from sub-$100,000 park homes and condos to grand houses and estates priced at more than $10 million. "With a number of gated communities also on offer, Palm Beach Gardens is incredibly diverse," reveals Bless, "with real estate ranging from golf course homes to an equestrian community all within close proximity of each other."

Home to approximately 55,000 people, Palm Beach Gardens is a principal city within the Miami metropolitan area. "With just an estimated 55,000 people living in Palm Beach Gardens, it represents an exclusive slice of the wider Miami metro area, which, today, more than 6 million people now call home," Tanya Bless suggests.

Notable past and present Palm Beach Gardens residents include tennis professionals Serena and Venus Williams, professional golfer Rory McIlroy, actor Barrie Ingham, and the late Scott Carpenter, one of the original NASA astronauts selected for Project Mercury in 1959, the same year Palm Beach Gardens was established.

Palm Beach Gardens is hugely attractive to visitors thanks to shopping malls and other retail destinations including The Gardens Mall, Midtown, Legacy Place, and Downtown at the Gardens. "The Gardens Mall is especially popular," adds Bless, "and is home to Macy's, Bloomingdale's, Sears, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Nordstrom, plus more than 150 further specialty shops and restaurants."

Also drawing increasing numbers of property buyers and visitors alike to Palm Beach Gardens is, of course, golf, according to the expert. "'The Golf Capital of the World' boasts 12 golf courses in total," she explains, "including one owned by the municipality."

Transport links to and from Palm Beach Gardens are excellent, too, says Bless, with Palm Beach International Airport just 12 miles to the south of the city.

"North Palm Beach County General Aviation Airport, meanwhile, is just 12 miles west," she adds, wrapping up, "while Palm Beach County Park Airport and public-use airport Witham Field are both less than 30 miles away."

Art of Jung Ching Hsiau

PARIS, FRANCE, October 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The French art market has been one of the most important art markets worldwide for ages.
Artists like Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Marc Chagall, Modigliani had their studios in Paris and created their works in the fascination of Paris.
The French art market, especially in Paris, attracts international art collectors. The biggest art fair in France, "Fiac", takes place in October. During this time, other art fairs in Paris attract art collectors and art lovers magically. The PAKS Gallery from Austria presents selected artists from many countries in the Carrousel du Louvre.
„Contemporary art is one of the strongest internal expressions and also serves as a barometer of mood in a modern society. In times of social change, political differences of opinion and digitization, the importance of artistic freedom of expression as well as the artistic perspective of society with all its characteristics is increasing. Therefore, it was important for me to show a wide range of art from many countries in this exhibition“ – says director of PAKS Gallery Heinz Playner. For the exhibition at the contemporary art fair in the Carrousel du Louvre, he has selected from among thousands of artists around the world 48 artists and will be showing their art from 18 to 20 October at the Louvre in Paris.

One of the selected artists for the exhibition is Nakibul Ghani Ahsan from the USA. His characteristic works of art, which bind him especially to his country of origin India and thus get a very interesting expression, will be on display in the Paris Louvre. His life journey took him from India through London to New York. Today, Nakibul Ghani Ahsan lives and paints in his studio in New York and is present worldwide with his art.

Kaligraphs by JungChing Hsiau from Taiwan were also selected. His works of art are a form of communication between the sheet and the hand expressing his inner world. Despite the minimalist concept, the works seem fascinating and limitless. His works have been shown in many international exhibitions from Shanghai, Beijing to Fine Art Biennale Basel and can now be seen and bought at the art fair in Carrousel du Louvre.

The exhibition will be shown at booth D1 / PAKS Gallery at the contemporary art fair in the Carrousel du Louvre Paris from 18 to 20 October 2019.

Electro Scan Inc. to Inspect Entire Wastewater Collection System of La Grange, North Carolina

Machine-Intelligent Technology to Find & Quantify Infiltration in 30-Mile Network, Replacing Less Accurate and More Subjective CCTV Inspection

In 2004, our town spent $2.4 million on sewer rehabilitation. That helped temporarily. But, those repairs either failed or other issues developed.”

— John Craft, La Grange Town Manager

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today Electro Scan Inc. announced that it has been selected to inspect the Town of La Grange, North Carolina's entire wastewater collection system. Representing over 30-miles (160,000 feet) of sewer main, Electro Scan will use its award-winning and patented Focused Electrode Leak Location (FELL) machine-intelligent technology to locate sources of infiltration and report all leaks in Gallons per Minute (GPM).

"We are delighted to serve La Grange in this important project," stated Mike App, Vice President, Electro Scan Inc.

"Town administrators had identified several pipes suspected as having leaks, and were surprised when FELL precisely located all the defects they could see and a few others they couldn't," stated App.

On October 8, 2016, Hurricane Matthew hit North Carolina as a Category 1 storm, bringing record flooding to many areas in eastern North Carolina’s coastal plain, sound, and coastal communities. During a 36-hour period, up to 18 inches of heavy rainfall inundated areas in central and eastern North Carolina.

Last month, on September 5 & 6, Hurricane Dorian passed by North Carolina as a Category 2 Hurricane with La Grange receiving 6.5 inches of rain at the Wastewater Treatment Plant. Rainfall increased treatment plant flows from 350,000 Gallons per Day (GPD) –– the day before Hurricane Dorian – to as high as 2 million GPD after the storm.

Prior to Electro Scan's FELL technology, cities and towns could only rely on visual inspection using closed-circuit television (CCTV) cameras, or less reliable smoke or dye testing, to detect sources of infiltration.

"In 2004, our town spent $2.4 million on sewer rehabilitation," stated La Grange Town Manager, John Craft. "That helped temporarily. But, those repairs either failed or other issues developed."

"Given that Electro Scan can find defects that go undetected using CCTV inspection and other methods, and can compute a defect flow in Gallons per Minute, we look forward to pinpointing our defects and prioritizing rehabilitation to address our worst leaks, first," stated Craft.

"Small agencies are usually the first to adopt new technologies," stated Mackenzie App, Director of Field Services, Eastern Region.

"If you don't have the luxury to spend money on the same things you did last year –– without getting any benefit –– you tend to be more selective in your business decisions," stated App.

"Congratulations to La Grange for your pioneering vision –– I can't wait to start work on this project," stated App.

All work will be done in accordance with ASTM F2550-13 (2018), 'Standard Practice for Locating Leaks in Sewer Pipes By Measuring the Variation of Electric Current Flow Through the Pipe Wall.'

In the past, cities have been limited to using high-resolution CCTV cameras to detect & catalog infiltration. But, industry experts have long-recognized the drawbacks in using visual inspection that leads to incorrectly prioritizing needed repairs & rehabilitation.

MAJOR DRAWBACKS OF CCTV & VISUAL INSPECTION
1. Can’t decipher cracks that leak from cracks that don't leak.
2. No repeatability. Two or more operators, same pipe.
3. No repeatability. Same operator, same pipe, different dates.
4. Can't assess watertightness of new pipes or CIPP.
5. Surcharged pipes require expensive bypass pumping.
6. Can’t assess pipe joints inside bell & spigot.
7. No leakage rates provided in NASSCO CCTV coding.
8. Risk of selecting wrong pipes to rehabilitate or accept as watertight.
9. Can't see defects hidden with encrustations, grease, roots, or silt.
10. Unable to see defects below waterline.

MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF FELL INSPECTION
1. Accurately quantifies leaks in Gallons per Minute.
2. Automatically provides precise location – within 3/8th inch (1cm).
3. Unbiased & repeatable results, tested by EPA, WRc, & IKT.
4. Fast rate of inspection – 2-3x faster than CCTV daily production.
5. No third-party data interpretation required. It's machine-intelligent.
6. Approved for all gravity sewer mains & pressurized pipes.
7. Recommended to test force mains, siphons & large diameter pipes.
8. Simulating a surcharged pipe, bypass pumping is never required.
9. Assesses each pipe joint, inside bell & spigot, and lateral connection.
10. Creates a baseline GPM before rehabilitation.
11. Able to assess CIPP and Post-Rehabilitation % Effectiveness.
12. Referenced in US EPA Consent Decrees.
13. ASTM F2550 (3rd Edition, 2018).
14. AWWA M77 (1st Edition, 2019).
15. Data available on cloud app in less than 10 minutes, worldwide.
16. Cities can add FELL equipment to standard CCTV trucks or vans.
17. FELL|CCTV Integration Kits for Aries, Cues, IBAK, iPEK, Rausch.
18. Master Class by WRc, developers of NASSCO CCTV codes.
19. Used by IKT, world's largest R&D organization, in recent CIPP study.
20. Partnership with Innovyze®. FELL integrates with InfoAsset Planner®.

The Town of La Grange, population 2,800, is located in Lenoir County which is one of 15 counties within the Central Coastal Plain Capacity Use Area (CCPCUA) as designated by the NC Division of Water Resources, Environmental Management Commission.

Funding for the project was provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Kansas City, MO-based Black and Veatch was retained as the town's consulting engineer.

Hickory, NC-based ClearWater Inc. is the exclusive representative of Electro Scan products and services in North Carolina.

Separately, Electro Scan Inc. recently announced another 30-mile FELL inspection project –– currently nearing completion –– with Hillsborough County, the fourth largest utility in the State of Florida.

In 2019, Electro Scan Inc. was selected by Government Technology magazine as a GovTech 100, the top one-hundred most important applications for a government to use, was selected by Fast Company magazine to their prestigious list of World’s Most Innovative Companies, and selected by BlueTech Research as one of 15 Water Technologies to Watch.
