Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty Announces Goal to Raise $100K to Help Kids at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles

The brokerage underscored that YHSGR ultimately has a mission to become the most charitable real estate brokerage in North America.

ROSEMEAD, CA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty announced today that the award-winning brokerage has made a commitment to raise $100,000 for Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles (CHLA). In addition to this donation goal, YHSGR also made public their desire to become “the most charitable real estate brokerage in North America,” according to the company’s leadership.

Though Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty has experienced rapid success since its inception in 2007, the company has maintained a corporate culture of charitable giving and volunteerism that has become central to YHSGR’s values.

“We are committed to investing in the needs of our community through our Go Serve Big Mission!” said Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty CEO Rudy Lira Kusuma. “We have been a long-time supporter of CHLA and are proud to announce our $100K in 12-month donation goal. Our team is known for meeting and exceeding every goal we set and we are certain this time will be no different.”

Your Home Sold Guaranteed agents and employees regularly give a portion of income from home sales to worthy causes that positively impact the area’s surrounding communities. As a designated “give back to the community brokerage”, agents give a portion of each closed transaction to a charity of their choice, but clients are never asked to make donations.

As part of the $100K donation initiative, Samantha Neustadter, Senior Associate Director of Corporate Partnerships at the Foundation Department of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles received a check from YHSGR today for $11,650, their Q2 installment of their donation goal. In the next 90 days, Rudy Kusuma and his team intend to raise an additional $25K to donate as their Q3 contribution to the hospital.

Since Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty raises the funds for CHLA through a portion of their home sales, this means that every home sold this year by YHSGR will directly impact children seeking treatment at the hospital.

“In order for CHLA to provide their lifesaving work and keep family medical bills to a minimum, CHLA depends on sponsorships and donations.” said Kusuma. “I am extremely proud of our agents for their positive impact in helping sick children and our communities at large by participating in this big goal.”

In order to meet their $100K in 12 months’ donation goal for CHLA, Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty is asking the community for help via referrals of anyone who is considering buying or selling a home. As these referrals flow into the brokerage, the YHSGR team will employ their award-winning approach to ensuring homes are bought and sold quickly for prices and terms that meet and exceed client expectations.

Anyone who refers a client to Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty to help them meet their donation goal is guaranteed “award-winning service” in addition to the life-changing impact of the donation resulting from the final transaction. To refer friends, neighbors, family members and associates who are considering making a move, call 626-789-0159.

More counties under burning restrictions to help prevent wildfires (published July 26, 2021)

To help ensure public safety and protect natural resources, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is expanding burning restrictions. Effective 12:01 a.m., July 27, areas within state jurisdiction in Aitkin, Becker, Benton, Carlton, Clearwater, Mahnomen and Stearns counties are included in burning restrictions already in place for the eastern portion of Roseau County and all of Beltrami, Cass, Cook, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Lake, Morrison, St. Louis, Todd and Wadena counties.

Under these restrictions:

  • No campfires are allowed for dispersed, remote, or backcountry camping on all lands.
  • No campfires – with or without a ring – are allowed on any DNR-managed lands. This applies to all campsites, cabins, picnic and other day-use areas. Camp stoves are permitted.
  • On non-DNR-managed lands, campfires may be allowed in established fire rings associated with a home, cabin, campground, or resort. Check with the site manager for possible additional restrictions.
  • No fireworks may be ignited on any public or private land outside city limits. Check with your local community for any additional restrictions.
  • The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste.

The DNR is also temporarily barring all recreational fires on DNR-managed lands in these additional counties:  western portion of Roseau and all of Douglas, Kanabec, Kittson, Mille Lacs, Otter Tail, Pine and Pope counties.  These counties are not subject to the other restrictions on non-DNR lands listed above.

The burning restrictions will remain in effect until revised or terminated by the DNR commissioner when weather and environmental conditions indicate a significant reduction in fire danger. Tribal nations regulate open burning for their communities.

Linda Gormanson, the DNR’s burning permit coordinator, said the ongoing drought is fueling unusually high wildfire activity in Minnesota and that if conditions don’t improve, banning all campfires and limiting other activities such as welding could become a necessary response.

This year, more than 1,600 wildfires have burned more than 35,000 acres in Minnesota.

Check the DNR statewide fire danger and burning restrictions map and follow the fire prevention tips above. People who spot a wildfire should call 911.

Visit the DNR wildland fire information webpage for more information on current restrictions.

SpineThera Announces Issuance of Fourth and Fifth Patents Covering its Sustained-Release Platform Technology

MEDICAL ALLEY, MINNESOTA, UNITED STATES, July 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — SpineThera, Inc., a privately held, clinical stage pharmaceutical company focused on the development of SX600 (a novel formulation of sustained-release dexamethasone for treatment of sciatica) announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has recently issued U.S. Patent Number 10,925,883 entitled Pharmaceutical Compositions and Uses Thereof. The issuance of the ‘883 patent will add to the company’s growing worldwide patent portfolio and is already issued in nineteen other countries. The issued claims of this patent family are directed at composition coverage of SpineThera’s novel biodegradable, sustained-release microsphere platform technologies. The company’s lead product, SX600, is currently being evaluated in a Phase 2 clinical trial for lumbar radiculopathy (sciatica) in Australia.

The USPTO also recently issued U.S. Patent Number 11,058,692 titled Pharmaceutical Composition and Use. The ‘692 patent covers the composition of microspheres with an anti-inflammatory agent, in addition to claims for specific pain treatment uses.

Jeff Missling, Chief Executive Officer of SpineThera stated “These patents are the fourth and fifth in a series of patents that protect our sustained-release, injectable pharmaceutical platform technology. SpineThera’s micro-suspension platform is designed to provide superior injectability of high-concentration, sustained-release drug formulations that enables us to develop new drugs for unmet medical needs. We do not believe that other sustained-release technologies that have been developed for subcutaneous, intramuscular, or intraarticular injection can match the injectability of our micro-suspension. The issuance of these recent patents demonstrates SpineThera’s strong commitment to protecting innovative product candidates and the future commercial opportunity of our pipeline.”

About SpineThera

SpineThera is a clinical stage pharmaceutical company working to improve the lives of patients by creating injectable drugs utilizing its proprietary and differentiated sustained-release platform technology. Our goal is to develop proprietary drugs that offer patients and physicians new treatment options that reduce risk, improve outcomes, and manage overall treatment costs in markets with few or no approved drugs. The company’s lead investigational drug product, SX600, is a novel formulation of dexamethasone being developed for lumbar radiculopathy.

Driver Makes Remarkable Escape After Crashing Vehicle and Being Swept Away in Floodwaters

On the night of Saturday, July 24, 2021, Arizona Department of Public Safety (AZDPS) troopers and Rincon Valley Fire District responded to a single-vehicle collision on eastbound Interstate 10 at milepost 282 in Vail. The driver of a Honda Civic lost control of her vehicle in a heavy rainstorm, causing the car to strike a fence before jumping a culvert. The vehicle landed on the other side of a wash and rolled before hitting a tree, coming to rest on its passenger side and catching fire.

Realizing the vehicle was on fire, the driver managed to climb out on top of the car through the driver’s side door. She then jumped down, landing in a fast-moving wash she hadn’t seen flowing beside the vehicle. The rushing water swept her into a concrete culvert and under the interstate, carrying her about 300 yards until she was able to grab hold of a tree branch.

After struggling for 10 to 15 minutes, she was finally able to pull herself out of the water and begin walking towards the interstate. A good Samaritan gave her a ride back to the crash scene, where she was medically evaluated and, fortunately, was found to have only minor injuries.

While this is a remarkable story of survival, it’s also a great example of why troopers advise motorists to slow down in wet weather. Just a small amount of water on the road is all it takes to make a vehicle hydroplane.

With more monsoon weather in the forecast for Arizona this week, please take time to prepare your vehicle, use caution on the road, and always buckle up!

Apollos University Innovating in AI and IT Leadership Degrees

AI and IT

Imagine yourself as a leader in today’s Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology fields.

We continue to search for cutting edge design and educational opportunities to offer our students so they will not just be ready for today’s world but also for the leadership roles of tomorrow.”

— Dr. Paul Eidson

GREAT FALLS, MONTANA, USA, July 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — As more and more businesses and business operations embrace IT and AI applications, there is a growing need for qualified leaders to manage these cutting-edge sectors. With many institutions offering degrees in IT and AI, what has been lacking in the market are programs aimed at training leaders and entrepreneurs in these fields. To meet these needs, Apollos University has added new fields of study that will help working professionals gain valuable and sought-after expertise. Two of these new concentrations are a Doctor of Business Administration in Artificial Intelligence and a Doctor of Business Administration in Information Technology.

As data driven, machine learning becomes more and more common place in virtually every industry, the technological fields are among the fastest growing fields today and Apollos is innovating in these areas, bringing leadership studies together with the more practical elements of IT and AI. As part of Apollos University’s mission, we understand the importance in providing educational programs that provide our students with knowledge that is designed for not only today but also for the future. Dr. Jae Maloney, Apollos Alumni and head of the Distance Learning XR and AI project at Apollos, stated, “these new concentrations were added so leaders can obtain a highly sought-after doctorate in business while increasing their knowledge in the fields of Artificial Intelligence and Information Technology.”

“Apollos is an established educational leader in AI and IT, stated Dr. Paul Eidson, Chair of the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) program, adding, “we continue to search for cutting edge design and educational opportunities to offer our students so they will not just be ready for today’s world but also for the leadership roles of tomorrow.”

By conducting a quick review of open positions posted online, one quickly sees that the demand is high, and the financial gains are great. A qualified Artificial Intelligence Developer can expect to make a yearly six figure salary of around $125,000. Likewise, a qualified Information Technology Developer can expect to make $80,000 and higher.

According to a recent Whitepaper published by Pluralsight LLC, “The global workforce is undergoing a massive technological shift that many are calling the ‘fourth Industrial Revolution.’ According to a recent World Economic Forum report, nearly a third of the most important skillsets in 2025 will be comprised of technology skills not yet considered imperative to the job today.” It is therefore imperative that leader of both today and tomorrow understand the trends and direction of machine learning and IT applications.

AI is transforming virtually every aspect of our lives. Business leaders need to seize the inertia of innovation and understand both the implications and capabilities of IT and AI for their organizations. These doctoral concentrations prepare students for real-world application of AI and IT solutions in their workplaces. Courses include Analytics, Data Science, and Artificial Intelligence; Machine Learning; Robotics; and Artificial Intelligence Adoption. Upon completion of the degree program, students will be able to integrate AI and IT seamlessly into the business or technical process of an organization.

Whether it is for personal or business use, we are seeing IT and AI incorporated into all aspects of our lives, from medicine, education, and law enforcement, to marketing, communication, finance, transportation, entertainment, and weather forecasting. IT and AI functionalities are quickly becoming the driving force in the global economy. These new doctoral concentrations prepare students for advanced careers in IT service management, software engineering, and audit functions at their workplaces. Courses include IT Service Management; Software Engineering; IT Auditing; and Leading IT Innovations. Upon completion of the degree program, students will be able to integrate IT and AI innovations within an organization.

The DBA prepares leaders in business organizations and business studies through applied, practical, and project-oriented learning. Candidates complete both coursework and a dissertation project in their focus area. Students can choose from the standard DBA with elective courses relevant to their current or target career paths or enroll in one of the new concentrations and take their career to a new level. Graduates of the program undergo what one recent student has termed a “mental maturation” process that prepares them to lead organizations effectively, apply both academic theory and practical applications to business problems, perform effective business and academic research, engage in lifelong learning, and share their knowledge as leaders and educators in the field of business.

Come join the Apollos University worldwide student and alumni body as we move into the future with innovative and dynamic degree programs. For more information about Apollos University and our programs, please contact us at info@apollos.edu or call 406-799-1515.

More counties under burning restrictions to help prevent wildfires

To help ensure public safety and protect natural resources, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is expanding burning restrictions. Effective 12:01 a.m., July 27, areas within state jurisdiction in Aitkin, Becker, Benton, Carlton, Clearwater, Mahnomen and Stearns counties are included in burning restrictions already in place for the eastern portion of Roseau County and all of Beltrami, Cass, Cook, Crow Wing, Hubbard, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake of the Woods, Lake, Morrison, St. Louis, Todd and Wadena counties.

Under these restrictions:

  • No campfires are allowed for dispersed, remote, or backcountry camping on all lands.
  • No campfires – with or without a ring – are allowed on any DNR-managed lands. This applies to all campsites, cabins, picnic and other day-use areas. Camp stoves are permitted.
  • On non-DNR-managed lands, campfires may be allowed in established fire rings associated with a home, cabin, campground, or resort. Check with the site manager for possible additional restrictions.
  • No fireworks may be ignited on any public or private land outside city limits. Check with your local community for any additional restrictions.
  • The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste.

The DNR is also temporarily barring all recreational fires on DNR-managed lands in these additional counties:  western portion of Roseau and all of Douglas, Kanabec, Kittson, Mille Lacs, Otter Tail, Pine and Pope counties.  These counties are not subject to the other restrictions on non-DNR lands listed above.

The burning restrictions will remain in effect until revised or terminated by the DNR commissioner when weather and environmental conditions indicate a significant reduction in fire danger. Tribal nations regulate open burning for their communities.

Linda Gormanson, the DNR’s burning permit coordinator, said the ongoing drought is fueling unusually high wildfire activity in Minnesota and that if conditions don’t improve, banning all campfires and limiting other activities such as welding could become a necessary response.

This year, more than 1,600 wildfires have burned more than 35,000 acres in Minnesota.

Check the DNR statewide fire danger and burning restrictions map and follow the fire prevention tips above. People who spot a wildfire should call 911.

Visit the DNR wildland fire information webpage for more information on current restrictions.

I-376 Banksville Interchange Project Online Virtual Public Open House Thursday

Pittsburgh, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of
Transportation (PennDOT) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are
pleased to invite you to attend one of two Virtual Public Open House sessions
being conducted on Thursday, July 29th,
2021 to discuss the S.R. 376, Section A59 Banksville Interchange project. 
Session One will be from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM and Session Two will be from 5:00
PM to 6:30 PM. Public input throughout project development is very important to
the success of the project. This briefing offers the opportunity to
provide input and engage in a question and answer session with the project
design team.

The
meetings will be held:

Time: Session 1 – 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Session 2 – 5
p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Date: Thursday, July 29, 2021

Location: Online only, link available online (see
below)

The project consists
of constructing new exit points from I-376 and Banksville Road (State Route 19)
to Sawmill Run Boulevard (State Route 51) thus eliminating the weave movement
that is currently present where Banksville Road merges with I-376 just before
the Fort Pitt Tunnel.  These new exit
points will consist of a new ramp from I-376 containing a bridge carrying
traffic over Banksville Road and tying into a new slip ramp from Banksville
Road.  The movement for traffic going
from Banksville Road to the Fort Pitt Tunnel will still operate as it does
today.  Other work consists of new
retaining walls along the Banksville Road slip ramp, a new outbound fourth lane
from Banksville to the Parkway Center Drive off-ramp, a new inbound third lane
from the Parkway Center Drive on-ramp to the new I-376 exit ramp, and updated
signing throughout the project.

To gain access to the
meeting please visit the project webpage below.  A link will be provided
on the bottom of the webpage to enter the meeting.  The webpage can also
be found by going to the PennDOT website (www.penndot.gov)
and clicking Regional Offices at the top of the screen.  From there, click
District 11 on the map of Pennsylvania, then click Public Meetings under the

Missouri Attorney General Files Suit to Stop Mask Mandates in St. Louis City, County

Missouri Attorney General Files Suit to Stop Mask Mandates in St. Louis City, County

Jul 26, 2021, 17:56 PM
by
AG Schmitt

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt today filed suit to stop the reimposition of a mask mandate in St. Louis County and St. Louis City. The suit, which was filed in circuit court in St. Louis County, names St. Louis County Executive Sam Page, St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones, and the respective directors of the county and city’s health departments.

 “Today, my office filed suit against St. Louis City and County for reimposing their mask mandate on the citizens of St. Louis. This continued government overreach is unacceptable and unconstitutional, especially in the face of a widely available vaccine. There is absolutely no scientific reason to continue to force children to wear a mask in school,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “Back in May, I filed suit against St. Louis County for continuing to impose such unlawful restrictions, and just three days later, those restrictions were lifted. I will continue to fight this seemingly unending control and intrusion on peoples’ lives – we will not back down.”

 

The lawsuit argues that reimposing the mask mandate is unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious, unconstitutional, and unlawful.

 

The lawsuit begins with, “St. Louis County and St. Louis City seek expanded government power that has failed to protect Missouri citizens living within their boundaries in the past and is not based on sound facts and data.”

 

The lawsuit argues that mandating children to wear masks in school is arbitrary and capricious given that children are at low risk to contract or spread COVID-19, have low mortality rates and less severe symptoms when they do contract COVID, and that wearing a mask in school may harm children. According to research noted in the lawsuit, masks may inhibit verbal and non-verbal communication, hampering linguistic and emotional development.

 

Additionally, the lawsuit notes that St. Louis City and County had some of the most restrictive orders in Missouri and yet still suffered some of the highest COVID-19 case and death rates, and that a renewed mask mandate undermines the important push for vaccinations.

 

Moreover, the lawsuit states that neither St. Louis City nor County cited the statutory authority that would allow them to issue wide-ranging health orders, that both orders are unconstitutionally vague, and that both orders restrict the religious freedom of St. Louisans.

 

The lawsuit also argues that both the City and County’s mask mandates are subject to the law recently passed by the Missouri legislature (House Bill 271), that places restrictions on local health orders. The suit states, “both Mask Mandates are subject to § 67.265.1(1), RSMo, and expire after thirty days absent authorization by a majority vote of St. Louis County’s or St. Louis City’s governing body.” Additionally, the lawsuit notes that, according to § 67.265.4, RSMo, “the health officer, local public health agency, public health authority, or executive shall provide a report to the governing body containing information supporting the need for such order.” The defendants never provided that report.

 

The Missouri Attorney General’s Office previously filed suit against the St. Louis County Executive over COVID-19 restrictions on May 11, 2021. St. Louis County lifted nearly all of their restrictions roughly three days after that lawsuit was filed.

 

Today’s lawsuit asks the court for injunctive relief to invalidate the mask mandate and for a declaration that the mask mandates are subject to the law passed by the legislature in May (see § 67.265, RSMo).
