Michael Marinaccio, President & CEO of Retro Fitness Fairfield

Fitness Leader Donates to Non-Profits & Offers Free Team Training Session For Staff of Local Businesses in New Jersey

FAIRFIELD, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, March 22, 2018 / — For some people, a workout at the gym is a great way to get in shape or lose weight. But one fitness center in New Jersey is elevating what it means to be “fit”, and has a mission to give back to numerous non-profits while helping local residents and business owners realize their best self via a wellness program that impacts their life in a holistic way.

Retro Fitness Fairfield owner Michael Marinaccio always has a fundraiser planned, usually in honor of a member who struggled with a disease, died from heart issues, or has suffered from other issues. Some of the Retro Fitness Fairfield fundraisers have raised many thousands of dollars for worthy causes such as The American Heart Association, Alzheimer’s non-profits, Autism, Toys for Tots, and for women’s shelters in N.J.

“I decided to get into this business for many reasons, but at the forefront of my decision to own a large fitness center was always the idea that we are here to help our members and our community live a healthier life,” said Marinaccio. “That means we need to always give back, and support our local non-profits, while at the same time, keep our bodies as fit as possible in order to live a fuller, happier life.”

This New Jersey fitness center is a sprawling 34,000 square feet with over 200 pieces of equipment including 100 devoted solely for cardio. Other features include a large selection of free weights and select rise equipment; cable machines; a cardio movie theatre and a functional training room, NEO (New Exercise Order) perfect for teams and staff from businesses.

Another model program offered here is the B2B fitness idea local N.J. firms can participate in at the gym. Studies show that our brainpower is connected to our physical activity & helps your company's bottom line. Science has proven beyond a doubt that employees who exercise on a regular basis will not only be more focused and happy, but also save their companies substantial amounts of money.
In Silicon Valley, the most successful companies in the world like Apple, Twitter, Google and others offer their employees perks including exercise programs. Now, right here in New Jersey, local fitness center Retro Fitness Fairfield announced they are launching a new program aimed at helping businesses grow and prosper while helping their employees enjoy the benefits of workouts.
Employees who exercise enjoy health benefits not only at work but also at home. If you work out for at least 30 minutes, three times a week, you are 15 percent more likely to have a much higher job performance. With exercise comes better focus. Employees who are offered workouts and healthy activities by their employers are 18 percent more focused and engaged at work.

At the same time, businesses who offer their staff gym memberships see a 27 percent reduced rate of absenteeism, which saves money for their employers. With health care costs skyrocketing, saving on health care is one of the top ways businesses can impact their bottom line. At Retro Fitness Fairfield, The NEO Training room is designed for one-on-one personal training, with Strong for small group training and Team for large group training. It is also used for employee group fitness, which builds camaraderie, improves moral and gives everyone a sense of accomplishment as a TEAM.

The idea behind this free month of Team Training is the brainchild of Michael Marinaccio.

"We have such an amazing fitness center right in Fairfield, and time and time again, we see members who start out sluggish and unhappy with their health or appearance," said Marinaccio. "After a few months, it's like a magic button was pressed, because these same people are laughing at the gym, working out with a smile and looking plus feeling a lot better. I know from my own experience how exercise can make not just your muscles but your business stronger. This is a great way for local businesses to do something fantastic for their employees, and also for their bottom line. Most insurance companies pay back businesses when their staff participates in some kind of exercise program."

Live Talks Los Angeles Hosts Ehud Barak at Wilshire Boulevard Temple

Live Talks Los Angeles, in association with Wilshire Blvd. Temple presents former PM of Israel in May for a conversation about his new memoir.

Former PM of Israel Discusses New Memoir and His Search for Peace

Prime Minister Barak is a man of extraordinary courage and intellect… and Wilshire Boulevard Temple's sanctuary is a fitting place to hear one of the most important Jewish leaders of this century.”

— Rabbi Steven Z. Leder, Senior Rabbi of Wilshire Boulevard Temple

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, US, March 22, 2018 / — Live Talks Los Angeles, in association with Wilshire Boulevard Temple, presents former Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak in conversation about his upcoming memoir "My Country, My Life: Fighting for Israel, Searching for Peace." This event takes place Thursday, May 17, 2018, 8pm at Wilshire Boulevard Temple in Los Angeles. In addition, Live Talks Los Angeles will host Mr. Barak the next morning, Friday, May 18, 2018, 8am for a Live Talks Business Forum in downtown Los Angeles at Gensler. Ehud Barak’s powerfully honest memoir, on sale May 8, 2018, is the story of Israel – its battlefield triumphs and tragedies, its political accomplishments and the huge challenges it faces today – as told by one of its preeminent military and political leaders: a man whose life has been entwined from the beginning with his country’s.

"We’ve welcomed dozens of distinguished figures from a variety of fields over the years," noted Live Talks Los Angeles founder and producer Ted Habte-Gabr, "and we are delighted to bring such an eminent statesman as Ehud Barak to discuss his memoir in front of what we know will be an enthusiastic audience."

Rabbi Steven Z. Leder, Senior Rabbi of Wilshire Boulevard Temple says of Mr. Barak’s upcoming visit, "Soldier, statesman, classical pianist, unabashed advocate for peace; Prime Minister Barak is a man of extraordinary courage and intellect. We are honored to welcome him to Wilshire Boulevard Temple's sanctuary—a fitting place to hear one of the most important Jewish leaders of this century."

In the summer of 2000, the most decorated soldier in Israel's history—Ehud Barak—set himself a challenge as daunting as any he had faced on the battlefield: to secure a final peace with the Palestinians. He would propose two states for two peoples, with a shared capital in Jerusalem. He knew the risks of failure. But he also knew the risks of not trying: letting slip perhaps the last chance for a generation to secure genuine peace. It was a moment of truth. It was one of many in a life intertwined, from the start, with that of Israel. Born on a kibbutz, Barak became commander of Israel's elite special forces, then army Chief of Staff, and ultimately, Prime Minister.

"My Country, My Life" tells the unvarnished story of his—and his country's—first seven decades; of its major successes, but also its setbacks and misjudgments. He offers candid assessments of his fellow Israeli politicians, of the American administrations with which he worked, and of himself. Drawing on his experiences as a military and political leader, he sounds a powerful warning: Israel is at a crossroads, threatened by events beyond its borders and by divisions within. The two-state solution is more urgent than ever, not just for the Palestinians, but for the existential interests of Israel itself. Only by rediscovering the twin pillars on which it was built—military strength and moral purpose—can Israel thrive. This captivating memoir is an unprecedented and frank account of both Israel’s history and Barak’s own.

Tickets to the evening event on May 17, 2018 can be purchased at the Live Talks Los Angeles website beginning Friday, March 23, 2018 at 10am and range from $20-$95. Presale tickets are available for Citi cardmembers at Citi Private Pass. This event takes place at Wilshire Boulevard Temple, 3663 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90010.

Tickets to the morning Live Talks Business Forum on May 18, 2018 can be purchased on Friday, March 23, 2018 at 10am at the Live Talks Business Forum page and range from $20-45. That event takes place at Gensler, 500 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90071.

Since 2010 Live Talks Los Angeles has presented over 250 talks featuring authors, actors, filmmakers, artists, musicians, comedians, chefs, scientists, and business thought leaders in various venues in Los Angeles. Videos and podcasts of its events are available on its website

Putting Your Chatbots to Work

Focus on equipping bots with carefully structured content and data to give customers what they want, say experts at Earley Information Science roundtable.

CARLISLE, MA, UNITED STATES, March 22, 2018 / — Companies can be easily dazzled by their newest workers, the chatbots. But companies can be just as easily disappointed when customers become frustrated by opaque and time-consuming interactions with the bots.

It’s not the bots’ fault, said a panel of AI experts at a recent Executive Roundtable hosted by Earley Information Science (EIS), a leading consulting firm focused on organizing information for business impact.

Yes, chatbots are loaded with the bells and whistles of AI technology. But content and data are their lifeblood – and many companies are sabotaging their new armies of virtual workers by not supplying them with enough knowledge about products and processes to do their job. Too often, the companies turn to off-the-shelf software that misses the mark in packaging their information. What is needed, the experts said, are organizing principles and classification systems that are fully aligned with the unique aspects of each company’s business. Without those nuts and bolts in place, a chatbot can’t retrieve the information that a customer has asked for. Nor can it get to the next level – anticipating unasked questions about other needs.

“The data and the content are more important than the algorithm,” said Seth Earley, Founder and CEO of EIS. Notwithstanding all of its AI features, a chatbot is essentially “a channel to knowledge data and content, and when you have such a channel, you must have a knowledge architecture to support it.” Companies have to “repurpose” their existing content and data, he added, “to tag and organize it consistently so that it can be used for customer self-service, to support the call-center representative and across other types of AI systems.”

The Feb. 21 discussion, “Knowledge Engineering, Knowledge Management and Chatbots,” was led by Earley, who was joined by Tobias Goebel, Senior Director of Emerging Technologies at Aspect Software, a customer-engagement technology and customer experience company; Joe Gelb, President of Zoomin Software, which creates content publishing platforms; and Alex Masycheff, Co-Founder and CEO of Intuillion Ltd., a content management and software development firm.

The panelists discussed how knowledge engineering supports AI’s role in improving the customer’s experience, including advances in conversational search and information retrieval. Key to the effort, they said, is putting the right information foundation in place.

“Chatbots can answer user’s questions, but so can other communications tools,” said Masycheff. What sets them apart is that they are also able “to infer questions not asked and answer them as well.” But to pull that off, he said, they “must be able to capture context and be aware of the domain” in which they operate. And to make them aware in that way, chatbots have to be “fed with an ontology, a structured model of everything we know about this domain.”

Another challenge is to help chatbots serve up all that information by engaging customers in “conversational AI.”

Because the chatbot’s user interface is so different from the traditional graphical user interfaces of web sites, mobile apps and desktop applications, you have to make sure that the bot delivers information in discrete bite-size pieces easily understood by the customer, according to Aspect’s Goebel. Chatbots are dialogue-based, not screen-based. “It’s about gradual information discovery,” he said, “question by question, message by message.”

There are great rewards in getting this right. On the flip side, though, there are great risks in getting it wrong.

“If the conversational flow is not effective, the technology will be disregarded and have an adverse commercial effect,” said Zoomin’s Gelb. “Anything less than excellent is worse than nothing at all.”

Please use these links to access the roundtable webcast and a related article, “Knowledge Engineering: Structuring Content for AI.”

The next roundtable is scheduled for March 28, @ 1 p.m. ET, on the topic of “Product Data: The Great Enabler of IoT, Marketplaces and More.” To sign up, register here.

Tarps Now Announces New Lineup of Tarp Materials, Privacy Fencing Mesh and Windscreens

Top Quqality Stock and Custom Tarps for Over 30 Years

Company develops new materials technology used for windbreaks, privacy fencing and windscreens used in construction, disaster recovery and sports

ST. JOSEPH, MICHIGAN, USA, March 22, 2018 / — Being outside is good for your health and lots of fun. However, when wind speeds increase, conditions can quickly become uncomfortable, unpleasant and unhealthy. High wind speeds can also irritate the skin, causing the outermost layer of skin to slough off, leaving the delicate layers exposed to the elements. In addition, excessive wind can cause the skin to dry out and weaken.

To mitigate these impacts, Tarps Now has developed and offers protective Privacy Fencing Mesh, Hurricane Mesh, Windscreens and Mesh Tarps Materials that deliver significant protection against the damaging force of the wind, making it more comfortable and healthier during ordinary conditions, and especially so, following a natural disaster. Tarps Now recommends securing a supply of tarp materials to secure near term needs, while preparing for the potential of natural disasters. Supplies needed include mesh windscreen, utility ropes, bungee cords or plastic cable ties.

To prepare for such instances, it’s best to determine the prevailing direction of wind, and if it seems to change direction in a predictable manner, work out which way are the most powerful gusts. You’ll want to block the wind from that direction. If you’re camping, you may want to use the natural elements to protect you from the wind along with your windbreak. Look for a glade of trees, the side of a cliff or other sheltered area. Next, you’ll need to work out an anchor to attach the porch wind screen too. Don’t use a vehicle as part of the anchor. It’s very easy for someone to forget that the mesh tarps is tied to the car and drive away. A mature tree is a good anchor. When setting up your wind break, you want the anchors as close to your area as possible. The farther away your patio windscreen is from your campsite, the less protection it offers.

Tie windscreens to the anchors at a 45-degree angle from the ground. You are typically better blocking off a smaller area, rather than trying to block off a larger area. Setting the tarp at an angle allows the wind to flow more natural around the blockade, rather than hitting a barrier. Using bungee cords allows the windscreen to have some give with stronger winds, which should keep it from falling over. Use caution if you are using trees to anchor the material, because you can damage the bark and kill the tree if you tie the line too securely. Plastic cable ties work well to attach screen to fencing, such as for a park or even a baseball field.

While you won’t be able to completely eliminate the wind, you can certainly mitigate its effects. Windscreen Tarps can allow you to build a campfire to stay warm or light a camp stove to cook dinner. Privacy Fencing Tarps can also provide a degree of security even when you’re camping or in your backyard. Windscreens can also protect your home against storm or even hurricane damages. Contact to learn more and secure needed supplies.

Frank Sinatra's fingerprint card from a 1938 arrest and a rare studio tape of Jimi Hendrix will be auctioned April 19th

Frank Sinatra’s original signed fingerprint card from his arrest in New Jersey in 1938, on a morals charge.

Studio multi-track master two-inch tape with eight different songs and segments, recorded by Jimi Hendrix.

Framed group of individual signatures of all four Beatles, displayed beneath a photo of the Fab Four.

Bootleg Bruce Springsteen LP titled Jersey Devil, signed by Springsteen, Weinberg and Federici.

1978 Polish Star Wars one-sheet movie poster, unrestored.

They're expected star lots in Weiss Auctions’ next big sale, on Thursday, April 19th, at 10 am Eastern time, online and at the firm's gallery in Lynbrook, N.Y.

LYNBROOK, N.Y., UNITED STATES, March 22, 2018 / — LYNBROOK, N.Y. – Frank Sinatra’s original signed fingerprint card from his arrest in New Jersey in 1938, pre-fame, on a morals charge, and a studio multi-track master two-inch tape with eight different songs and segments recorded by Jimi Hendrix not long before his death, are star lots in Weiss Auctions’ next big sale, planned for Thursday, April 19th, at 10 am Eastern time.

The auction will be held online and in Weiss Auctions’ gallery at 74 Merrick Road in Lynbrook. Internet bidding will be provided by and The sale is packed with hundreds of lots of rock ‘n’ roll, historical items, militaria and Part 3 of the Jerry Winevsky collection of New York City and Coney Island postcards, books, photographs and ephemera.

In November 1938, a then-23-year-old Frank Sinatra was twice arrested in Bergen County, N.J., and charged with seduction (yes, that was a thing back then) and adultery. According to a police report, Sinatra “under the promise of marriage” had sex with a woman who initially claimed Ol’ Blue Eyes had deflowered her. Charges were dropped when it came out the woman was married.

Sinatra’s signed finger print card from that seduction arrest is the item being auctioned, and it’s considered a rare and valuable piece of memorabilia because it pre-dates his rise to stardom as an international singing sensation, charter member of the Rat Pack and the Chairman of the Board. Sinatra collectibles typically date back to when he was “Bones” at the Paramount and forward.

The multi-track master two-inch studio tape is the ultimate collectible for fans of Jimi Hendrix, arguably the greatest rock guitarist who ever lived. On the tape are eight songs (or segments), plus a short unidentified piano composition, recorded in the waning days of the star’s life, which ended at age 27 in 1970. Hendrix has been an inspiration for generations of guitarists ever since.

The lot consists of the studio tape, featuring six songs off the Cry of Love album (Freedom, Ezy Ryder, Night Bird Flying, Straight Ahead, Astro Man and In From the Storm); one song from the War Heroes album (Stepping Stone); an instrumental keyboard track lasting a few minutes; 24-bit .wav files, digitally transferred to two data DVDs, so the taped material can be used in a digital work station; and in-depth analyses of each song, all in a handsome presentation box.

The rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia also includes a 1969 Jimi Hendrix Northern California Folk Rock Festival concert poster; a 1969 Janis Joplin concert poster, a framed group of signatures from all four Beatles, displayed below an early photo of the Fab Four; a bootleg Bruce Springsteen LP titled Jersey Devil, signed by Springsteen, Weinberg and Federici; and original back stage passes from all genres, concerts and crew shirts, posters, handbills and other rare and sought after items.

Other posters will feature a 1935 Little Black Sambo one-sheet poster, with restoration; an 1897 French Exposition de Poupees (Doll Exhibition) poster; a 1983 Italian propaganda poster, one seeking volunteer technicians; a circa 1910 French Gustave Rouquier jewelry advertising poster, by Charles Railpod; and a scarce circa 1935 Wrigley’s Chewing Gum poster, by Otis Shepard.

The poster category continues with a 1978 Polish Star Wars one-sheet movie poster, unrestored; a 1932 Europe and Brazil Graf zeppelin travel poster, HAPAG, by Paul Theodore Etbauer; and a Veedol Motor Oil poster from around 1936 showing the Graf and Hindenburg zeppelins. Also up for bid will be World Wars I and II posters, advertising posters, foreign posters and other posters.

NASA offerings will include nicely framed lots, to include one for the Apollo 15 moon mission, with an image of the moon surrounded by autographs of various astronauts; one for the Mercury 7 mission, with a photo of the crew, an autographed news release and a signed check; and an Apollo 11 lot, with the crew and signatures of Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins.

A collection of rare and adorable cast iron doorstops will include a Hubley Bathing Beauties doorstop, signed “Fish”; a Hubley Charleston Dancers doorstop, also signed “Fish”; and more.
