Innovazione e Tecnologia MyPass al Servizio degli Sciatori

Vivere la montagna e sciare in libertà tra Trentino e Lombardia

TORINO, ITALY, January 17, 2017 / — For immediate release

Torino 16 Gennaio 2017

Sono triplicati gli sciatori che quest’anno hanno scelto MyPass per vivere la montagna e per accedere a diversi comprensori sciistici tra Trentino e Lombardia, con la stessa smart card, senza passare dalla biglietteria e senza prepagare.
Madonna di Campiglio, Folgarida-Marilleva, Folgaria, Monte Bondone, Paganella, Pejo, Pinzolo, Bormio, Santa Caterina e San Colombano rispondono così alle esigenze degli sciatori smart e danno vita a nuove e vincenti logiche di networking territoriale.

La competizione turistica tra comprensori sciistici si gioca su scale territoriali sempre più ampie. Mai quanto oggi per riposizionare l’offerta, i comprensori devono mettere al centro i bisogni ed i desideri dello sciatore e superare vecchie logiche campanilistiche. Solo mettendosi nei panni dei clienti e osservando i cambiamenti in atto, è possibile disegnare orizzonti progettuali innovativi, dove soluzioni smart generano reti territoriali strategiche, creano sviluppo economico e favoriscono forme efficaci di governance.

Ultimamente anche gli amanti della neve, solitamente “fedeli” alle località sciistiche, manifestano il desiderio di esplorare comprensori sciistici diversi. Sempre più spesso prendono le decisioni all’ultimo momento e privilegiano gli short breaks, piuttosto che le tradizionali settimane bianche. Gli sciatori sono sempre più smart: prenotano on line, ricercano quelle soluzioni capaci di soddisfare i loro desideri al miglior prezzo, e puntano a massimizzare quello che gli economisti chiamano “valore d’uso”. I fattori che influenzano le scelte sono molteplici e soprattutto variabili nel tempo: promozioni, presenza di neve, piste aperte, accessibilità, servizi “apres ski”… In tale contesto diventa strategico per le destinazioni offrire flessibilità e facilità di accesso alle piste da sci ed ai servizi, sempre e comunque al miglior prezzo.
Madonna di Campiglio, Folgarida-Marilleva, Folgaria, Monte Badone, Paganella, Pejo, Pinzolo, in Trentino e Bormio, Santa Caterina, San Colombano in Lombardia hanno scelto l’innovazione tecnologica di MyPass, per rispondere a questa nuova domanda, per innovare e rendere la montagna sempre più smart e attenta ai desideri dei turisti. In questi comprensori, è possibile accedere alle piste da sci, baite (al momento a Bormio) e ad alcuni servizi apres ski con la Smart Card MyPass, che integra e racchiude in sè una tecnologia interoperabile, un ID digitale e un sistema di pagamento intelligente in grado di rilevare sempre la miglior tariffa applicabile. Con MyPass non è più necessario stabilire in anticipo il tempo da trascorre sugli sci, né decidere quale biglietto acquistare: si è liberi di scegliere dove, quando e per quanto tempo sciare avendo la certezza di non fare coda in biglietteria e di pagare solo il tempo trascorso in pista. Il sistema rileva l’intervallo temporale che intercorre tra il primo e l’ultimo passaggio ai tornelli degli impianti di risalita e individua la miglior tariffa applicabile tra la pluri-giornaliera, la giornaliera e quella oraria.
MyPass srl è una start up italiana che propone le più evolute soluzioni interoperabili di mobile ticketing, mobile payment, accesso e pagamento a musei, eventi, cinema, esercizi commerciali e parcheggi attraverso lo smartphone.

“MyPass è la soluzione più innovativa per vivere il proprio tempo libero in maniera sempre più comoda, flessibile e sicura, grazie anche al nostro Partner Banca Sella. I dati sono molto incoraggianti, – afferma Guya Paganini, AD di MyPass – ci confermano che siamo sulla strada giusta e ci motivano ad investire per integrare sempre più servizi, per renderli tutti fruibili con un unico MyPass”.

L’importante collaborazione tra i comprensori sciistici e MyPass, volta inizialmente a trovare soluzioni per migliorare l’esperienza di sciatori ed amanti della montagna, ha successivamente fatto sviluppare inaspettate forme di networking dove tutti gli attori territoriali ed economici vincono all’interno di uno scenario competitivo globale.

Blindness Creates New Vision for Artist NovaCain

EVANSVILLE, IN, USA, January 17, 2017 / — For most people, going blind at the mere age of 17 would seem like a death sentence. For artist NovaCain, it meant a new life and renewed sense of purpose. When an irresponsible doctor left the up and coming Nova without his sight due to unforeseen side effects of medication, the artist found himself unable to play basketball, which had been his first passion. But, when NovaCain discovered he had a knack for music, there was a kind of rebirth and Nova realized his life’s work was to make music and a difference in the world. With no formal training, the young rapper set out to defy stereotypes and create his own brand of rap that was effective without being crass or inappropriate. “Instead of letting it beat me down, it made me feel like I was supposed to go blind so I could represent a group of people who didn’t have a voice.” Losing his vision opened his eyes, metaphorically speaking, and soon he was creating music that was inspirational and motivating to all who would listen.

Nova’s music is unlike most rap you’ll hear on the radio today; it is fun and exciting, but it doesn’t require any of the degradation, cursing, and bragging about drugs that most popular rappers feel pushed to write about. “I can do just as well, and talk about everything that Lil Wayne and Jay Z do, but without any of the disrespect. I can make a clean hip-hop song, and people can vibe to it without finding it cheesy. It doesn’t take away from the sound.”

His latest project, a single entitled “I Should Have Went to College,” was released on January 3rd, 2017 and has already garnered over 102,053 streams on Spotify. NovaCain partnered with the popular musical platform to campaign for much-deserved awareness for the talented rapper. The song, which is dedicated in part to NovaCain’s late mother who was committed to her children’s education, is a message to her even though she is not here to hear it. The song is about the developments in technology and the avenues of education that allow for success; it explains that despite not going to college, NovaCain is ultimately going to be successful because of his heart and grit and smarts – not because he went through 4 or 5 years of schooling. “People are going to college and having their dreams beaten out of them,” explains the rapper, “That’s not me, and this is what I want to do – but I’m still going to be successful. My mom raised thinkers, so I’m keeping up those morals.”

NovaCain believes in the power of music – to inspire, to change. While his goal is to be heard, his ultimate dream is bigger than himself. “If I’m going to do this music thing, I have to help the people around me.” The artist is working on a Braille Music Blind Awareness campaign, a tour to partner with corporations and go into blind schools and encourage children. “I’ll show them my story and how I overcame it, and tell them life is still possible with a disability.”

He may be blind, but NovaCain’s music will show you the way.

Filled with enough plot, characterization and metaphorical heft to stuff a full-length novel, Darkness Whispers brilliantly depicts the supernatural exploitation of a small town’s moral failings.

— Bentley Little, Bram Stoker Award Winning Author

BALTIMORE, MD, USA, January 17, 2017 / — Baltimore, MD – January, 17, 2017 – Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman have a new release coming out in early 2017 titled, Darkness Whispers. And, it’s already sold out! Don’t worry, the e-book is coming soon so you don’t have miss out. Darkness Whispers introduces you to the town of Windbrook. Nothing changes there. Nothing is different. Except… except today something is different. An old man with piercing gray eyes arrives in town. And he isn't coming alone. Death travels with him.

“Filled with enough plot, characterization and metaphorical heft to stuff a full-length novel, Darkness Whispers brilliantly depicts the supernatural exploitation of a small town’s moral failings,” says Bentley Little, Bram Stoker Award Winning Author. “Subtly shifting from Bradbury-esque whimsy to badass horror worthy of the King himself, the novella is a major achievement by Richard Chizmar and Brian James Freeman,” says Little.

With Chizmar and Freeman’s credentials and skills combined, they have created an old-fashioned tale of horror. By the end, you’ll be wondering when this peculiar old man is coming for you. If you are a fan of darkness, horror, and truly chilling tales, Darkness Whispers is the novella you’ve been waiting for.

Through the old, tattered files of stories acceptances and rejections, Chizmar uncovered one of the first stories he wrote. Inspired by the EC comics of his youth, with the raw potential for a good story, but with room for improvement, he considered revising it. Then, a better idea came. He sent it to his friend and co-worker, Brian James Freeman. Collaborating together, a new story was born.

“What was a short story quickly became a novella, and we never looked back,” says Brian James Freeman. “This one really feels like something you'd find in one of those classic 1980s horror paperbacks. Working on Darkness Whispers was a blast,” says Freeman.

"Darkness Whispers begins as a visit to a golden-hued, idyllic town that soon gets dark. Very dark. I quickly gave up trying to second-guess the formidable authors and simply surrendered to their lead all the way to the shattering conclusion. Chizmar and Freeman know that horror doesn’t work without humanity, and with this story they succeed in chilling our blood and breaking our hearts,” says Ray Garton, bestselling author of Live Girls and Crucifix Autumn.

While the limited edition of Darkness Whispers by Scarlet Galleon Publications has sold out, an e-book edition is coming soon from Cemetery Dance Publications. Don’t miss out on Darkness Whispers and be the first to know when the e-book pre-order link goes live by signing up for updates from Richard Chizmar here and Brian Freeman here.

Connecticut AG Office Asked To Investigate CONNSTEP For Alleged Business Defamation and Mishandling of Federal Funds

CONNSTEP (Office Park)

Daryl Guberman

The complaint cites one or more employees of CONNSTEP have sent a number of malicious emails to one or more customers of G-PMC Group

It's important for Connecticut manufacturers to understand they have the option to use the certification body of their choice for ISO registration, whether it's accredited or not accredited.

— Daryl Guberman

HARTFORD, CT, USA, January 17, 2017 / — A Connecticut small business owner is requesting Connecticut Attorney General George Jepsen to investigate the alleged business defamatory and anti-competitive practices of CONNSTEP, a federal-funded business management consultancy firm in Rocky Hill.

Daryl Guberman, CEO of G-PMC Group, LLC and former bodybuiding champion (Mr. Connecticut), filed a complaint with the Attorney General office alleging CONNSTEP employees knowingly and willingly engaged in business defamation and anti-competitive practices targeting Guberman's company and its accreditation body, the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC).

The complaint cites one or more employees of CONNSTEP in the position of 'Business Growth Advisors' have sent a number of malicious emails to one or more customers of G-PMC Group consisting of false statements about ISO certificates issued by Guberman's company by deliberately claiming the documents lacked accreditation.

According to the complaint, the misleading statements made by CONNSTEP employees was purposely and strategically executed as part of a smear campaign that singled out Guberman in retaliation of complaints he previously submitted to CONNSTEP leadership and state officials regarding a third party accreditation scheme promoted by the organization. The complaint cites CONNSTEP's actions was intended to hurt the reputation of G-PMC Group by making the company appear to its customers to be an invalid issuer of ISO 9001 certification.

According to Guberman, CONNSTEP leadership was informed of a similar incident before the Attorney General was asked to investigate. Guberman said he notified Bonnie Del Conte, the CEO of CONNSTEP multiple times, including once by certified mail about the matter, and has yet to receive a response from the organization.

According to Mr. Guberman after no response from Ms. DelConte, he mailed a second letter by certified mail to Ms. DelConte, which also went unanswered. A copy of the second letter can be found at

Being ISO 9001 Certified means an organization has met the requirements in ISO 9001. It defines an ISO 9000 Quality Management System (QMS). ISO 9001:2015 is focused on meeting customer expectations and delivering customer satisfaction so businesses must pay attention to their customers. G-PMC Group has issued hundreds of accredited ISO certifications to businesses nationwide, including sub-contractors of Lockheed Martin, the largest government contractor in the United States.

Records show G-PMC Group is incorporated in the state of Delaware and accredited by the American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC). Therefore, malicious claims, directly or indirectly of G-PMC Group lacking accreditation may hold a person or organization libel for business defamation. Under U.S. law, it is illegal to make false, derogatory statement(s) in private or public about a person's business practices, character, financial status, morals, or reputation. Oral defamation is a slander whereas printed or published defamation is a libel.

As a federally funded organization, the Attorney General of Connecticut is being asked by Guberman and Donald LaBelle, the Chairman of ABAC to look into the possible malfeasance and mishandling of the $7.4 million recently awarded to CONNSTEP in a cooperative agreement from the U.S. Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The complaint addresses concerns of CONNSTEP allegedly using tax payer money to compensate staff engaging in business defamatory practices while promoting an anti-competitive accreditation scheme in collusion with ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB® ).

Guberman said ANAB® leadership accepts and recognizes his accreditation body (ABAC™) and therefore, CONNSTEP should apologize for making misleading statements about certifications issued by G-PMC Group, LLC. The Vice President of ANAB® Randy Dougherty stated in a recent email to Guberman, “We recognize and accept that there are conformity assessment bodies and accreditation bodies, such as your body and your AB.”

"It's important for Connecticut manufacturers to understand they have the option to use the certification body of their choice for ISO registration, whether it's accredited or not accredited," said Guberman. He added, "The International Organization for Standardization, the developer of all ISO standards, clearly states that accreditation is not compulsory, and non-accreditation does not necessarily mean it is not reputable, all it does is provide independent confirmation of competence." He added, “Any organization believed to be maliciously making false statements about accreditation in the ISO certification marketplace to unjustly gain market dominance should be investigated by the state's Attorney General and the Federal Government for violating U.S. antitrust laws.”

"It's fundamentally flawed and a disgrace to small businesses nationwide if a federally-funded consultancy firm affiliated with the state of Connecticut is allowed to utilize tax dollars to unfairly and unethically dominate a marketplace by harming the reputation and financial stability of its competitors, particularly small businesses such as Guberman's company" says LaBelle.

Guberman and LaBelle has consulted with a Westport Attorney, widely considered the state's leading expert in business defamation and anti-competitive laws for possible compensatory and economic damages for lost compensation, emotional and physical distress and damage to their reputation.

BROOKLINE, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2017 / — Brookline, MA – Brightleaf Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of contract abstraction and analytics solutions that helps its clients overcome the challenges of mining important information from structured or unstructured text-based documents, has successfully upgraded its information security standards from ISO 27001:2005 to ISO 27001:2013. This is a reaffirmation of Brightleaf’s continued commitment to the highest standards of information security for its clients.

With the increasing number of cyber security threats, strengthening physical and logical information security is of utmost importance for Brightleaf, since it deals with the clients most critical information. Brightleaf is legally and morally bound to safeguard every bit of processed and unprocessed data for their clients.

“We are committed to maintaining and improving information security within our practice.

The ISO 27001 ISMS Standards is a process-based approach established and updated by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the world’s largest developer of international standards. The ISO 27001:2013 ISMS Standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS) within the context of an organization.

Brightleaf’s technology that can extract meta-data from contractual documents, is built using natural language processing alongside AI technologies, and capable of handling structured, semi-structured and unstructured legal and contractual documents and is customized to client requirements.


Brightleaf provides a technology powered service to extract information from your contracts using our own proprietary semantic intelligence/natural language processing technology, our own team of lawyers to check the output, and our own Six-Sigma process to deliver end-to-end, highly accurate, extracted data from your contracts.

The data can be virtually anything, and it is customized for each of your type of contracts. All meta-data, terms and conditions, legal provisions, and even all obligations (which are usually scattered throughout your contracts) are extracted by our software. This extracted data is checked by our team of lawyers, and provided in a format for easy upload into any system, such as a Contract Lifecycle Management System (CLM), for tracking and reporting (download Strategy Brief).

This allows you to leverage the knowledge in your existing contracts, report on the extracted data, even recover hidden revenue (e.g. by policing penalty clauses in your supplier agreements) and comply with current and upcoming regulations.

Brightleaf was voted one of the top five data mining companies, and the only one in the legal space.
