I love working with Military families and Veterans. Having lived my life in a Military family, I understand the unique needs that are required when they are looking to buy or sell a home.

— Cecilia Cook

KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA, December 1, 2016 / — Cecilia Cook was born in Waynesville, North Carolina and graduated from Pisgah High School. Following high school, she moved to Charlotte, NC to attend Trident Technical College.

While there, she accepted a position as a network clerk with BellSouth. She later transferred to an AT&T phone center store as a Customer Service Clerk and then to an AT&T Call Center. “I was supposed to go to Columbia, South Carolina but that position was cancelled.” She says, “So I ended up in Jacksonville, Florida.” Lucky for her, it’s where she met her husband, David. “I call that fate or divine intervention because if that job in Columbia hadn’t been cancelled, we might never have met!”

At that time, David was a US Marine Corps Reservist at Cecil Field, Jacksonville, Florida and working at the AT&T Call Center. About a year later, he made the choice to become an active duty Marine and transferred to Marine Air Station, El Toro, located in Orange County, California.

It was during this time that the Cooks welcomed their firstborn, a daughter, named Maegan.

The family moved back east to Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, then on to Charleston, South Carolina, after David was accepted into a commissioning program. He attended The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina.

While David attended classes, Cecilia worked in the Department of Education at the Citadel. She is proud to have been involved with the cadets and veterans who attended the Citadel as part of the Day Program and the Graduate students, who attended at night. “The Day Program was wonderful,” Cecilia says, “It’s structured so that veteran students can take full advantage of the Citadel’s campus and educational facilities as they work toward their Bachelor’s Degree. They take classes with Cadets and gain knowledge and experience that is unique to the military community.”

It was while living in Charleston that Cecilia’s interest in real estate began, as the young couple researched a first home purchase. During this time, their son Shane was born just after hurricane Hugo and Cecilia fondly called him her ‘Hugo baby!’

The family’s first duty station after David was commissioned was in Okinawa, Japan, where they spent three years. “It was a great experience.” Cecilia recalls, “The greatest experiences come when you are open to different cultures.”

Sadly, six months before their next permanent change of station (PCS) move, Cecilia’s father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, so she and the children came home early to North Carolina.

Their next move was to South Weymouth, Massachusetts where David pursued a Master’s Degree through the Marine Corps advanced degree program.

While David was attending class, Cecilia worked at the Naval Air Station (NAS) South Weymouth. She worked for the Commander, as a Secretary, during the transition period when the base was preparing to close due to Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC).

Once David finished his studies, the family moved to Northern Virginia while David was assigned to Headquarters Marine Corps. Here, the family made their first new home purchase and Cecilia was again intrigued by the real estate market and its intricacies.

The family moved to Knoxville, Tennessee, where David was assigned as the Inspector Instructor (I&I) of Delta Company, 4th CEB. Cecilia went to work for a local media company.

With the children in high school, the family decided to stay in the Knoxville area and David accepted a final assignment, an unaccompanied tour in Pakistan. He retired in 2004 and they stayed in the Knoxville area. “David took a job at a local contracting company as a Project Manager,” Cecilia says, “Then within the first six months they asked him to go to Iraq to oversee projects there.”

Amid this transition from a military lifestyle to the civilian world, Cecilia was diagnosed with breast cancer. She states that while it doesn’t define her, it does put things in perspective.

When David came home from Iraq, they decided to start their own consulting business. Their intent was to establish a residential construction company. Cecilia says, “I love Real Estate. I’ve always loved the smell of fresh cut lumber and the feeling that you have when you go into a home.”

Then, the Real Estate market imploded.

Cecilia has also dedicated herself to causes far beyond herself and has advice for the future generations via her blog.

She says,"One of the important things a parent can do is to plan for their children’s education and one of my favorite examples of advising young parents is to examine different approaches for saving for the future: traditional savings account, traditional investments or investing in rental Real Estate.”

Looking at the first option, assume a child is five years old and the parents start putting $250 per month in a standard savings account earning 2%. In 13 years they would have $44,497.41 to pay for their child’s college expenses – not nearly enough. Doubling that savings to $500 per month would still only end up being $88,995, and few young parents could afford to do so.

Another traditional investment would be to make a lump sum contribution of $20,000 today in a mutual fund earning 5% that would be worth $37,713 in 13 years. They would have to make a $47,196 initial contribution to end up with the same $88,995.

An alternative to these traditional methods is to invest in a $100,000 home in a good area. Assuming a three percent appreciation and rent of $1,000 a month, an initial investment of only $23,500 could have a future wealth position of $83,838 at the end of 13 years.

Caring, compassionate and educated, Cecilia is a forward-thinker who is well-grounded in the realities that today’s military home buyers face. Cecilia wants to pay it forward.

TGTE's Parliament Sitting Begins in Paris. Opening Session in French Parliament

"Parliament to debate critical issues effecting Tamils. Several International Dignitaries to speak"

COLOMBO, SRI LANKA, December 1, 2016 / —

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam's (TGTE) Parliamentary Session is scheduled from December 2nd, 2016 to December 4th, 2016 in Paris. Opening Session is to take place in the French Parliament. Several international dignitaries, including from Kurdistan and South Sudan, are speaking during the opening Session.

TGTE Members of Parliament (MPs) from around the world along with TGTE Members of the Senate are convening in Paris for this Parliament Session. The Speaker of the TGTE Parliament Mr. Balachandran will inaugurate the Session and will Chair the debate on the Resolutions submitted by the Members of Parliament.

For this Parliamentary session TGTE have chosen “Changing world order and the place of small struggling nations in their quest for freedom" and “Will the Sri Lankan State structure ever accommodate the aspirations of the Tamil Nation?” as the themes.

The first theme was formulated based on the changing of the current world order. This change is marked by the rise of populism, retreat/excess of globalization, BREXIT, and the victory of Donald Trump. The second theme was formulated based on outrage of Buddhist monks in two separate incidents in the last fortnight, one against Tamil government officials and the other against Muslim activists with no action from the Sri Lankan State to date.

Additional critical issues, including upcoming March Session of the UN Human Rights Council and holding a Referendum among Eelam Tamils to find their wishes through a democratic process, will also be discussed.

This sitting follows worldwide memorial events to remember tens of thousands of Tamils who were killed and Tamil women sexually assaulted and raped by the Sri Lankan security forces in the final months of the war that ended in 2009.

IT Governance encourages information security professionals to analyse daily incidents to avoid data breaches

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, November 30, 2016 / — International information security experts IT Governance, are encouraging information security professionals to help organisations avoid data breaches by analysing the breaches disclosed in the news every day. IT Governance advises that this analysis can help information security professionals develop strategies and tactics to prevent cyber threats.

Alan Calder, the founder and chief executive officer of IT Governance, said: “Data breaches, such as those suffered by Tesco Bank, Morrisons and TalkTalk, make headline news every day. Information security professionals can learn from them and develop tactics to avoid breaches and respond to information security incidents.

“A data breach compromises the confidentiality, availability and/or integrity of an organisation’s information. Organisations should focus on the three core areas that will help avoid a data breach: people, processes and technology. There’s much to learn about how those three facets contribute to cyber security from studying news reports when security fails.”

It is critical to understand the everyday trends and traits of data breaches: why and how they take place, the types of breaches that can occur, what makes attacks successful, and what measures an organisation should take to avoid or recover from a data breach. Information security professionals hoping to gain a better appreciation of these traits are encouraged to take a look at IT Governance’s book of the month: Managing Information Security Breaches – Studies from real life by Michael Krausz.

The book is a thought-provoking guide to preparing for a data breach, and gives real-life examples of breaches to help organisations prepare for incidents they may face in the future. It explains how data breaches and incidents can be dealt with, and the role ISO 27001:2013 has to play in keeping organisations secure.

The ISO 27001:2013 standard advocates the three pillars of cyber security: people, processes and technology. By implementing an ISO 27001-compliant information security management system (ISMS), organisations address the key risk areas and take a systematic approach to monitoring, maintaining and improving their information security.

IT Governance supports ISO 27001 compliance projects with a range of ISO 27001 packaged solutions. Each solution provides a carefully selected mix of training, tools and consultancy services designed to help organisations with different internal competences, skills and resources to implement and achieve compliance with the Standard.

To find out more about IT Governance’s book of the month or ISO 27001 compliance solutions, please visit the website, email or contact the team direct on +44 (0)845 070 1750.

PIXELWARE renueva su imagen corporativa, logotipo y web

Evolución a lo largo de años del logo y los colores corporativos de PIXELWARE

Nuevo color corporativo, evolución de estilo visual y una renovación profunda de su sitio web

A lo largo de sus 20 años de existencia PIXELWARE ha ido modelando sus recursos y actividad, entorno relacional, leyes, mercado y tecnología están en constante cambio.

— Safwan Nassri – CEO PIXELWARE

ALCOBENDAS , MADRID, SPAIN, November 30, 2016 / — PIXELWARE empresa española, líder en plataformas de contratación y licitación electrónica, a lo largo de sus 20 años de existencia ha ido modelando sus recursos y actividad, entorno relacional, leyes, mercado y tecnología están en constante cambio. La evolución para incorporar estos cambios ha sido y es crítica en una empresa que pretende liderar un determinado mercado, la imagen corporativa refleja en parte esta evolución.

Nacimos como empresa de producto y desde entonces hemos ido ampliando nuestra misión hasta el momento actual con una oferta global de servicios con operación de plataformas en la nube y consultoría especialmente focalizada al ámbito de la Contratación Electrónica y las Compras Públicas. Destacar en este periodo el cambio en la interlocución con nuestros clientes, que es cada vez más directa con los usuarios y responsables del proceso sin necesidad de la intermediación del CIO o el departamento de tecnologías.

La nueva imagen corporativa, claramente reflejada en su nuevo logotipo, es una muestra de esta realidad actual de la empresa y su entorno. Es una imagen que pretende ser más clara y amigable y que habla de una empresa de corte tecnológico pero cuyo mayor capital es el factor humano.

El nuevo color –un azul equilibrado– y el uso en la web, el logotipo y en otros elementos de comunicación de una nueva línea gráfica y un estilo visual más depurado quieren reflejar la realidad actual de PIXELWARE, una empresa consolidada, de probada solvencia y volcada en el servicio al cliente. Y

El cambio de imagen y con ella el logotipo ha propiciado una renovación profunda de la WEB, en donde hemos creado una nueva estructura con el fin de conseguir una mayor facilidad de acceder a la información de la empresa y de las plataformas, y se articula sobre un resumen de las funcionalidades y beneficios, Casos de Éxito, Videos, Noticias y Próximos eventos, relacionados con las mismas.

En los últimos meses en paralelo hemos invertido en la mejora de contenidos en nuestro Blog oficial, donde aparte de contar con las opiniones propias de PIXELWARE, desde hace un tiempo recibe artículos y opiniones de destacados expertos que colaboran en el mismo con el objetivo de conseguir que sea un canal de información de referencia sobre la Contratación Electrónica. Esta misma línea es la que hemos seguido a través de nuestros canales en las redes sociales especialmente los grupos especializados de LinkedIn y nuestro canal de Twitter @Pixelware_SA.

Pensamos que con estos cambios no sólo hemos reflejado lo mejor del PIXELWARE actual, su especialización, experiencia y compromiso, sino que nos hemos preparado también para el PIXELWARE futuro. Muy pronto reflejaremos el nuevo diseño en todos nuestros servicios y plataformas.

Los medios interesados en descargar el nuevo logotipo y otra información de PIXELWARE podrán encontrarlo en esta página…

¡Esperamos resultarte más cercanos!

Premier Flight Group International Signs Deal With Grand Wings

It's a good time to be a pilot, especially for those pilot's looking to work in China. This partnership with Grand Wings comes at a time of growth and we are pleased to be a part of it.

— Bryan McKee – CEO

WHITESTOWN, INDIANA, UNITED STATES, December 1, 2016 / — Pilot job opportunities abound, worldwide, as Premier Flight Group International excitedly announces its new partnership with Grand Wings, a recruiting company for a number of Chinese based air carriers. Premier Flight Group International now offers long term contracts for Boeing 737, Airbus A320, and Embraer E190/195 for qualified candidates.

According to Boeing, the largest aircraft manufacturer in the world, there will be a need for over 6,300 new aircraft in China by the year 2034, to the tune of a $1 trillion valuation. Growth estimates are staggering, with the Chinese fleet of narrowbody and widebody aircraft tripling in size in the next twenty years. This, alongside nearly $5.6 trillion worth of new aircraft projected to be purchased and put in service over the rest of the globe in the same timeframe, there will most certainly be a shortage of qualified applicants. Most projections put the total number of new pilots required in the next twenty years around 550,000, with nearly half of that coming from the Asia Pacific region alone.

Chinese airlines are already recognizing the need for qualified ex-pat pilots, as their experience is an extremely valuable asset to a growing airline. Due to their experience, Chinese airlines pay commensurately in the form of huge annual salaries and bonus completion packages.

Premier Flight Group International has partnered with Grand Wings to offer competitive pay packages for qualified candidates at Lucky Air, Ruili Airlines, Fuzhou Airlines, West Air, and GX Airlines. Top pay is in excess of $300,000 USD for Boeing 737, $290,000 USD for Airbus A320, and over $220,000 for Embraer E190.
