Nevoa’s Whole-Room Disinfection Protocol Proven by Independent Study to be 99% Effective at Killing Pathogens

Nimbus, a disinfecting robot by Nevoa Inc., fogs Nevoa Microburst Solution to disinfect patient rooms, killing 99.8% of pathogens such as coronavirus.

Nimbus, a disinfecting robot by Nevoa Inc., fogs Nevoa Microburst Solution to disinfect patient rooms, killing 99.8% of pathogens such as coronavirus.

Independent laboratory proves Nimbus Disinfection Protocol is 99.8% effective at killing pathogens causing Healthcare-Associated Infections, including COVID-19.

TEMPE, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, June 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nevoa Inc., a Tempe, Arizona-based company, today announced the results of a recent, independent, clinical study proving the efficacy of its Nimbus Disinfection Protocol and the impact on pathogen reduction in hospital patient rooms.

“To reduce Healthcare-Acquired Infections (HAIs) hospitals are seeking innovative technology to supplement their manual cleaning practices,” said Ernest Cunningham, president of Nevoa® Inc. “One disinfectant, Hypochlorous acid, or HOCl, is rapidly emerging as exceptionally effective and we’ve harnessed that power in our hospital-grade disinfecting solution, Microburst.”

Nevoa’s Nimbus™ robot atomizes, or fogs, Nevoa Microburst SolutionTM, an EPA-registered disinfectant whose active ingredient is HOCl, into a dense fog in a post-discharge patient room. All surfaces and equipment, even those in shadow, are completely coated. Nimbus then automatically activates a dehumidification process allowing immediate room re-entry.

Nevoa’s new Nimbus Disinfection Protocol combines the Nimbus robot atomizing Microburst with a modified Environmental Services cleaning practice. The result is the eradication of pathogens in patient rooms, lowering the risk of patients acquiring HAIs such as MRSA, C. difficile, and viral infections such as COVID-19.

Clinical Study

The study was conducted by Microchem Laboratory, based in Round Rock, Texas, in two diverse, acute-care facilities that are part of a large Arizona hospital network. The goal was to determine the microbial population present in hospital patient rooms and the efficacy of the new disinfection protocol. Prior to using the Nimbus Disinfection Protocol, Microchem randomly selected patient rooms, finding MRSA in 33% of rooms at the first location and in 75% of rooms at the second hospital.

Microchem conducted an environmental analysis of different surfaces, both immediately after patient discharge and again after Nimbus Disinfection Protocol was completed. Analyzed surfaces included locations that typically harbor bacteria, such as the bed rail, nurse call remote, toilet grab bar and visitor chair.

The Results

After using the Nimbus Disinfection Protocol in the first hospital, no MRSA or C. difficile colonies were found in any sampled room, demonstrating the protocol to be 100% effective.

Following Nimbus Disinfection Protocol at the second hospital, trace amounts of MRSA colonies were noted but no C. difficile colonies were detected. The protocol was greater than 99.8% effective.

“We know that our Nimbus Disinfection Protocol is completely effective for whole-room disinfection and now that’s been proven,” said Cunningham. “Our technology is being used at more and more hospitals throughout the country as we fight the coronavirus pandemic. We’re committed to eradicating this virus.”

The independent lab analysis concluded the Nimbus Disinfection Protocol eliminated pathogens and is an excellent practice for the reduction of HAIs. The full case study can be obtained here.

Cyber Incident Response course first to achieve recently rebranded National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) Certification

Over 300 organisations, including the United Nations, Unilever and Microsoft, in 20 different countries have benefitted from the course and internal workshops.

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cyber Management Alliance, the global frontrunner in cyber crisis management and training, is delighted to announce that its highly popular course, Cyber Incident Planning & Response (CIPR) has become the first course to be certified by the recently-rebranded NCSC’s certified training scheme, provided by APMG International.

The Cyber Management Alliance course was first certified by the Government Scheme in 2016 and is also accredited by the Chartered Institute of Information Security (CIISec).

Interactive, practical, and immersive, the entire course can be conveniently completed by attending a virtual classroom or via a self-paced e-learning environment. Besides gaining imperative insights into key cyber risk-reducing controls for their business, course participants also have the advantage of being trained by Amar Singh, renowned across the globe as one of the top cybersecurity practitioners and the founder and CEO of Cyber Management Alliance.

Speaking on the launch, Amar said, “I am delighted that APMG has awarded NCSC Certified Training status for the CIPR course, including its online delivery programme. The updated and comprehensive course is accessible for all levels of management and technical audiences. The CIPR course is a complete guide to planning and responding to a cyber crisis or a data breach.”

APMG-International’s COO, Nick Houlton, said, “Protecting individuals, teams and organisations from the financial and reputational damage of Cyber Incidents is at the heart of the Information Security Agenda. APMG is delighted to certify this course on behalf of the UK National Cyber Security Centre and looks forward to its continuing success in the market.”

Makers of Award-Winning, Honey-on-Tap Bee Hives Warn of Existential Threat on World Environment Day

Bees are responsible for pollinating 30 percent of the world’s food crops and 90 percent of the world’s plants. Without bees, human life as we know it wouldn’t be sustainable.

Bees are responsible for pollinating 30 percent of the world’s food crops and 90 percent of the world’s plants. Without bees, human life as we know it wouldn’t be sustainable.

No life is sustainable without bees. Traditional beekeeping can be harsh on bees, even crushing them when honey is extracted. Bees are too important to lose. We wanted to design something that would make harvesting honey much gentler on bees.

No life is sustainable without bees. Traditional beekeeping can be harsh on bees, even crushing them when honey is extracted. Bees are too important to lose. We wanted to design something that would make harvesting honey much gentler on bees.

The Flow Hive is so much easier for the beekeeper and so much gentler on the bees

The Flow Hive is so much easier for the beekeeper and so much gentler on the bees

To Care for Ourselves, We Must Care for Nature. The inventor of the award-winning Flow Hive said that nature is sending us a message.

I want everyone to realise how interconnected humans and animals are. Over the past 15 years, global bee populations have declined rapidly, largely due to climate change, pollution and pesticides”

— Cedar Anderson

BYRON BAY, AUSTRALIA, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The co-inventor of Flow Hive, an award-winning, beehive that’s gentler on the bees and which makes it possible to tap honey straight from the hive, today took the opportunity of this year’s World Environment Day to express that nature is sending us a message.

“The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature. But the exciting thing is that there are so many tiny actions all of us can do to play a part in protecting bees and all the little pollinators that give us life,” said Cedar Anderson, co-inventor of the Flow Hive. “Protecting bees is not just the job of beekeepers — we all have a role, and it can start in our own backyards.”

“I want everyone to realise how interconnected we humans and animals are,” he continued. “Over the past 15 years, global bee populations have been declining rapidly, largely due to climate change, pollution and pesticides. This worrying trend continues today despite the fact that bees are responsible for pollinating 30 percent of the world’s food crops and 90 percent of the world’s plants. Without bees, human life as we know it wouldn’t be sustainable.”

Recent disruptions in our food chain of favourites like avocados and coffee are indicative of the dangers to pollinators, believes Flow, the company behind the Flow Hive. Without pollinators, we’d have to say goodbye to almonds, many vegetables, fruit and even beef supplies would be affected since cattle rely on pollinated plants for food. Many parts of the world have already become pollinator deserts, bereft of nectar and pollen because of habitat destruction, water pollution and the use of pesticides, insecticides and even herbicides (which can be toxic to bees and other pollinators). Basically, we all depend upon pollinators for the varied and healthful diets we enjoy.

There are also animals that eat bees themselves, including the rainbow bee-eater and other animals. A loss of bees for them would have negative effects that would reverberate up the food chain, posing a danger not just to them but to the animals which prey on them for food.

Seeing the environment breaking down is a clear message that we must take what could be our last opportunity to change our ways and start building it back up, not only for our sake but for that of other life on the planet.

“We simply cannot pretend it is business as usual in the face of an existential threat to our way of life. Flow asks that people around the world think of some of the creatures hardest hit, such as bees, by climate change, and whose demise will have particularly dire consequences on all life on this planet,” notes Cedar.

“We created the Flow Hive because we wanted to make beekeeping more accessible and sustainable,” explained Anderson, who spent years designing the Flow Hive with his father, Stuart Anderson, in Bryon Bay, Australia. “No life is sustainable without bees. Traditional beekeeping can be harsh on bees, even crushing them when honey is extracted. Bees are too important to lose. We wanted to design something that would make harvesting honey much gentler on bees.”

Fast Company awarded Flow Hive the honour of “World Changing Idea” in the consumer products category. It also has won multiple other awards for innovation, design, marketing and business, including Good Design Australia, D&AD White Pencil, two medals at Apimondia International Beekeeping Congress, and New South Wales Business Chamber’s Business of the Year. A scientific study even found that Flow Hive honey tastes fresher and cleaner than traditional honey!

Along with countless backyards, acreages and farms, Flow Hive is being used on the rooftops of The Intercontinental Hotel and the Barclay Hotel in New York, the Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte, N.C., the Hague in the Netherlands, the Government House in Sydney, and the Parliament House in Australia’s capital of Canberra, and celebrities and chefs like Chris Hemsworth and Jamie Oliver are also picking up the Flow Hive buzz.

“We hope to encourage a new generation of beekeepers around the world who will bring with them enthusiasm, wonder, passion and purpose. Beekeeping increases our overall engagement with nature and reinforces our appreciation of how these magical creatures work,” Anderson said. “It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices. It’s time to build back better than before for people and the planet. This World Environment Day, it’s time for nature.

For more information about Flow Hive, email info@honeyflow.com, call 02 88 800 774 or visit www.honeyflow.com.au.

ABOUT FLOW HIVE
Australia’s Flow Hive was launched in 2015 with a record-breaking, crowdfunding campaign which received support from tens of thousands of people around the world. Since then, Flow Hive has reached over 75,000 beekeepers across 130 countries. Using a unique Flow Frame of partly pre-formed honeycomb cells, Flow Hive is able to split cells vertically, letting honey flow down to a sealed trough while the bees remain undisturbed on the comb’s surface. It's so much easier for the beekeeper and so much gentler on the bees. For more information about Flow Hive, email media@honeyflow.com, call 02 88 800 774 or visit www.honeyflow.com.au.

Mike Holtzman’s Harrowing Story, “The House at the End of the World,” Published in Solstice Literary Magazine

Mike Holtzman (Photo credit: Julia Sariy)

A Tale for Our Troubled Times, Set at the Intersection of Poverty, Race, and Climate Change

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — New York, New York. June 1, 2020: New York-based author Mike Holtzman’s latest story, “The House at the End of the World,” the much-anticipated follow-up to his acclaimed “Paper Dolls of the East,” is featured in the spring 2020 issue of Solstice Literary Magazine. The story, set in a lonely house on a North Carolina riverbank, is about monsters, natural and man-made and a mother and little girl who confront them.

“I am so taken with the story, with the language, the prose poetry, and the moving way (Holtzman) depicts the flood,” said Solstice Editor-in-Chief Lee Hope Betcher. “I love the range he shows in his work.”

"This place is supposed to be heaven surely better than the red brick community house that grinds down her soul in Trent Court. Being poor and lonely can bring demons of another kind and that’s how it was for her but Kinston is a new beginning and while those demons didn’t steal after her others more wicked and determined lay in wait here. They too prey on her poverty and her isolation they can smell her from hundreds of miles away. They know her defenses are weak and being poor no one would care of her fate."
-Mike Holtzman, “The House at the End of the World”

“The House at the End of the World” follows the runaway success of “Paper Dolls of the East,” which was selected by Man-Booker Prize Winner Paul Beatty for Solstice’s Annual Literary Prize and publication in the 2019 summer issue. Set in a Syrian refugee camp, “Paper Dolls” was also honored by the Lorian Hemingway Literary Prize, was a finalist for the Tucson Festival of Books Literary Prize, and won accolades from Glimmer Train and other literary journals.

Human Trials Show the Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

The 3 Day Fast Start Diet - "Fasting With Food"

The 3 Day Fast Start Diet

Intermittent Fasting

Fasting With Food

Intermittent Fasting has been scientifically proven to aid in weight loss, boost metabolism, and enhance hormone function. It is the best way to help your body.

You can't help someone up a hill
without getting closer to the top yourself”

— Joey Dweck

TENAFLY, NEW JERSEY, US, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a new study published in Nature Proteomics scientists found that intermittent fasting may prevent the onset of diabetes and cancer. While previous studies were conducted with mice, this study is based on human studies. Fourteen healthy men and women participated in a month long study where they fasted from sunrise to sunset, ending the day with a late-evening meal. This 30-day study led to the discovery of “anticancer serum proteomic signature and upregulated key regulatory proteins of glucose and lipid metabolism, insulin signaling, circadian clock, DNA repair, cytoskeleton remodeling, immune system, and cognitive function, and resulted in a serum proteome protective against cancer, obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, inflammation, Alzheimer’s disease, and several neuropsychiatric disorders.”

The authors of the study concluded “In summary, our results suggest that 30-day intermittent fasting from dawn to sunset can be a preventive and therapeutic approach in cancer as well as in several metabolic, inflammatory and immune diseases, Alzheimer’s disease and neuropsychiatric disorders by resulting in a proteome protective against carcinogenesis, obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, inflammation, cognitive dysfunction, and mental health. Further studies are needed to test the effect of dawn to sunset intermittent fasting in larger cohorts with consideration given to shorter durations of fasting and longer longitudinal follow-up after completion of intermittent fasting.”

While most people will find it difficult to fast, Weight Loss Buddy’s 3-Day Fast Start Diet makes intermittent fasting much more doable. The 3-Day Fast Start Diet is a carefully curated kit, scientifically formulated to simulate Fasting. So in essence it's "Fasting With Food" Reap all the health benefits of Fasting, lose weight, detox your body, and reverse aging in 3 days.

Swiss Holiday Park Reopens Its Doors

Swiss Holiday Park

Green Globe recently recertified the Swiss Holiday Park in acknowledgement of its sustainable management and operations.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Swiss Holiday Park is situated above Lake Lucerne in idyllic Morschach. The Park, surrounded by a breathtaking mountain panorama, combines vacation and leisure in one location.

Green Globe recently recertified the Swiss Holiday Park in acknowledgement of its sustainable management and operations.

The Park is committed to sustainable best practices carried out at the property. The past year has seen tremendous improvement in water and energy savings. Water is an important resource at this mountain property that aims to make the most of this vital asset. An onsite water bottling plant now provides drinking water for the entire park and has led to the phasing out of branded bottled mineral water. First established in January 2019 the plant initially catered for employees and saved 36,513 liters of bottled water. Later, in April 2019 this was expanded to include guests as well. In restaurants 29,628 bottles of water were saved, in guest rooms 11,520 bottles and in conference rooms 11,200 bottles. In total, over 88, 800 bottles of branded bottled water were replaced with sustainably produced local water.

The Swiss Holiday Park is a carbon neutral operation and utilizes renewable energy. Biomass energy from Agro-Energie Schwyz is produced from biogas and old wood and transferred by a district heating pipeline from a neighbouring municipality to Morschach. With the gradual introduction of district heating over the years, energy consumption in 2017 and 2018 fell significantly in 2019. Hydro electricity is also incorporated in the energy mix.

Located adjacent to the Park is the Fornalp Farm, home to Braunvieh and Jersey cows that produce milk for high quality dairy products consumed and sold at the property. Chickens also peck happily on the alpine grass and provide fresh eggs for guest breakfasts.

The Swiss Holiday Park reopened its doors on May 15, 2020 and is accepting overnight stay bookings. For further information please the website at swissholidayholidaypark.ch

Swiss Holiday Park Update
From May 15, 2020, the Swiss Holiday Park will initially reopen the hotel rooms, holiday apartments, water park and shop for overnight guests. The following areas are open to all of our guests: Fronalp adventure courtyard (outdoor area), badminton courts, tennis courts, squash courts, the forest park with Vitaparcours, the detective trail, the tipi village and the playgrounds.

About Green Globe Certification

BHERC rallies support for ESO WON Bookstore critical to our community, to education, to promoting & keeping black literature alive, accessible in Los Angeles.

We are asking individuals and organizations to join us in supporting ESO WON bookstore on June 6. The impact would be immeasurable, and then emulated throughout the community with other businesses.”

— Sandra Evers-Manly, President BHERC

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 3, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — (Los Angeles, CA) The Black Hollywood Education and Resource Center (BHERC) “Operation Love” announced today a call to stimulate community support of African American businesses in South Los Angeles by asking the community to come out in force to support ESO WON Bookstore for an “Operation Love” shopping day Saturday, June, 6, 2020 from 1pm to 3:00:pm. As Los Angeles turn its focus toward economic recovery, this effort to spotlight Black Businesses and their need for support from their community consumers is essential and critical to the revival of the South Los Angeles.

According to The Washington Post, less than 40% of African American business owners in the U.S. are still operating, the furthest decline of any race. Overall active business owners have dropped 22% since the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. The Pandemic has severely impacted all business however, just as the virus has physically disproportionately impacted African Americans, so has the impact on business. Resources that have not reached minority businesses to the type of businesses owned have played a part in the problem. Some organizations and celebrities have stepped in to try to provide grants and loan programs, however, this problem will be long lasting and will take the efforts of everyone to make the African American business community economically stable.

ESO WON Bookstore is a rare gem of a store that still offers the buyer a personal shopping experience, a diverse selection of books from all genres, personal recommendations from the store owners, music, book signings and lectures, custom orders, online shopping and is a place where, “everybody knows your name.” ESO WON has been a solid, vital business member of the community for more than 28 years. BHERC is encouraging consumers to choose to shop at ESO WON that Sunday instead of the big online giants. June represents a great month for Los Angeles consumers to shop ESO WON for the many offerings of books, music and gifts for Graduation, June Music Month, Juneteenth Celebration, Father’s Day Gifts or to pick up something for someone who is sheltering in place. Make at least one purchase, take a picture, and post it on the BHERC face book and/or #BHERCSupportsBlackBiz and tell us about your purchase or experience.

“We are asking individuals and organizations to join us in supporting ESO WON bookstore. I believe if everyone in the community made a purchase on June 6, the impact would be immeasurable,” stated Sandra Evers-Manly, President BHERC. “Then that example could be emulated throughout the community with other businesses.”

BHERC “Operation Love” Day at ESO WON is Sunday, June 6, 2020 from 10am to 1:00pm at 4327 Degnan Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90008, Phone: (323) 290-1048 website: www: esowonbookstore.com, email: esowonbooks@yahoo.com. Shoppers may also choose to browse online, place their orders online and select pick up in store. Regular store hours are Monday thru Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Everyone is encouraged share this message with their friends and networks and to visit during the BHERC “Operation Love” hours to show strength and solidarity and meet the team.
