    MIAMI, FL (PRBuzz.com) August 7, 2013 -- Ink Link Marketing, a South Florida-based PR and marketing firm, was recently named "Partner of the Year 2012," by the national Armed Services YMCA®. The recognition comes on the heels of the one-year anniversary of the partners' combined efforts to support military families through the assistance of Buffets, Inc. - one the nation's largest steak-buffet companies.

    "Ink Link Marketing has been fortunate to support community organizations like the ASYMCA by leveraging the relationships and resources we have with our clients," said Kim Miller, President of Ink Link Marketing. "We are honored to align with a reputable charity like the ASYMCA and to be the recipient of this very special award."

    The past year was filled with a number of shining moments including successful in-store music promotions at Buffets' restaurants that resulted in a $25,000 grant to the ASYMCA for their camp program, $750,000 of in-kind support via a direct mail program with a circulation of 11 million, and a significant increase in traditional and social media awareness for the ASYMCA. Both organizations have their sights on bigger shared goals as they continue their partnership in the coming year.

    Ink Link initiated the partnership for Buffets, Inc. with the ASYMCA in July 2012, when it launched the buffet company's first in-store music promotion featuring country music duo Montgomery Gentry. Subsequent music programs included a holiday promotion with country music legend Charlie Daniels and the most recent promotion with popular country music singer, actor and writer Billy Ray Cyrus. Profits raised through in-store CD sales were dedicated to the ASYMCA Operation Outdoors, a camp program that helps children of military cope while their parents are deployed.

    "Our partnership with Ink Link Marketing has far exceeded our expectations," said Brittany Catton, Director of Marketing for the ASYMCA. "Not only have their efforts through clients like Buffets, Inc. impacted military children and our Operation Outdoors camp program, they have also brought unprecedented visibility to the ASYMCA as a whole with their creative outreach with celebrities."

    In addition, Ink Link Marketing and the ASYMCA are collaborating on other efforts to further increase awareness for the charitable partner. Ink Link is exploring new music promotions and other programs for assisting the ASYMCA and its constituents. The partners are also reviewing other ASYMCA initiatives in need of support like Operation Kid Comfort, a quilt program that offers free personalized quilts for children of deployed military.

    (PRBuzz.com) August 7, 2013 -- The 2013 CRM Market Awards have been announced, and the winners are: Salesforce.com, Salesforce.com, Salesforce.com, and Salesforce.com. That's right; Salesforce.com took home the top prize in every category it entered this year, including Enterprise CRM, Mid-market CRM, Small Business CRM, and Sales Force Automation.

    Read below for further detail on CRM trends and Salesforce.com's winning ways.

    Enterprise CRM Suite
    The enterprise CRM market is at an all-time high. According to Gartner, worldwide CRM software revenue increased 12.5 percent between 2011 and 2012, from $16 billion to approximately $18 billion.

    This year, Salesforce.com maintained its position at the top for the enterprise CRM suite category, with a high score of 4.5 for company direction. Contributing to its number one ranking were key updates Salesforce.com made to its cloud platforms. These included the addition of social media products Buddy Media and Radian6 to its Marketing Cloud, as well as added social advertising capabilities with Social.com. Salesforce.com has also enhanced its email campaign management and marketing automation by acquiring ExactTarget.

    Mid-market CRM Suite
    Mid-market companies have spent 2013 focusing on how to improve their sales and earnings, and expand their business footprints. Business research and forecasting service Economic Intelligence Unit says SMBs are looking to technology, and specifically mobile applications and social media tools, to accomplish their goals. More often than not, they pick Salesforce.com, which earned the highest score for company direction in this year's category, with a 4.1.

    According to Steve King, partner at Emergent Research, "Salesforce.com is just plain all-around good," and is "still the most popular choice for mid-market CRM." Salesforce.com continues to strive to meet the demand, this year releasing Salesforce Touch Platform, which allows enterprises to build and deploy native, HTML5, or hybrid apps to any mobile device. Salesforce.com also acquired GoInstant, which offers sales support in an e-commerce transaction.
    Small-Business CRM Suite

    Small businesses have the advantage over larger companies of being able to build stronger and more personal relationships with customers. Many SMBs are embracing social media as a key part of this and are turning to social CRM for help. Salesforce.com wins this category, earning a 4.5 for company direction and 4.1 for is reputation for customer satisfaction. King calls Salesforce.com "the leading CRM product for small business of all sizes."

    Among the products giving Salesforce.com the edge is its recently introduced Marketing Cloud, which now partners with 20 social analytics providers. Also setting it apart are the previously mentioned launch of Social.com, an application that brings together social listening with CRM, and acquisition of ExactTarget, a cloud-based digital marketing platform.
    Sales Force Automation

    Sales reps are relying on mobile devices to do business in the field now more than ever. It makes sense then that their preferred smartphones and tablets are part of their decision when choosing a contact management and sales force automation (SFA) solution. As a result, CRM vendors who build SFA tools with mobile capabilities and collaboration features will have the most success.

    For the eighth straight year, Salesforce.com wins the SFA category, thanks to its Sales Cloud application, as well as some new additions. Salesforce.com has integrated its Sales Cloud with Work.com, a social performance platform that allows managers to recognize and reward sales success. The previously mentioned Salesforce Touch Platform was also released this year, allowing for deeper mobile app creation with Salesforce.com and third-party developers. Ray Wang, principal analyst and CEO of Constellation Research, says Salesforce.com "has the best vision and has done a great job executing."

    WILMINGTON, DELAWARE (PRBuzz.com) August 7, 2013 -- Diamond State Depository President Mike Clark passed away Friday, August 2, 2013, at the age of 66 after a brief battle with cancer. Clark will be remembered for his distinguished career in the precious metals and banking industries, Dallas-based metals dealers Dillon Gage said.

    "Mike was a friend and trusted advisor, who brought decades of expertise to Diamond State Depository (DSD)," Dillon Gage Metals President Terry Hanlon in Dallas says. "Many of us at Dillon Gage depended on and learned from his expertise." Clark opened DSD and four other precious metal depositories in the United States over a 30-year span, Hanlon adds.

    Clark established DSD in 2008 as a full-service, high-security metals depository in Delaware, attracted clients from around the nation and oversaw operations--giving customers and staff his full attention. He helped Dillon Gage launch International Depository Services of Canada (IDS) near Toronto in 2012. Clark's professionalism and attention to detail were second to none.

    Clark was sought out for his expertise about the precious metals industry and metals storage by CNBC, Wall Street Journal, COINWorld, COINWeek and CoinNews in recent years.

    A native of Dayton, Ohio, Clark graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, in 1969, where he played football and was captain of the 1968 Navy football team where he holds the record for most receptions (10) in an Army-Navy game. He served in the U.S. Navy as a carrier aviator and test pilot until 1980.

    Clark embarked on his precious metals career at Deak-Perera, a foreign currency and precious metals sales company, as vice president of its Washington, D.C. subsidiary. He oversaw Deak-Perera's Precious Metals Certificate Program--the nation's largest, retail metals investment program at the time.

    In 1984, Clark joined Wilmington Trust Company where he ran the bank's precious metals services. Under Clark, Wilmington Trust initiated a metals trading operation, and the company's depository became one of the largest in the world.

    In 1999, Clark co-founded FideliTrade Inc., a precious metals trading company in Wilmington. At FideliTrade, Clark launched Delaware Depository Service Company, LLC, an approved metals depository of the New York Mercantile Exchange, the New York Commodity Exchange and the Chicago Board of Trade. He served as DDSC's president until 2005.

    In 2005, Clark founded Solidus Associates, LLC, a Delaware-based, metals marketing and business development company.

    From 1987 until 2005, Clark served on the Precious Metals Advisory Committee of the New York Mercantile Exchange. From 1989 until 1991, he was chairman of the Industry Council for Tangible Assets or ICTA, a Washington, D.C.-based precious metals trade association, where he remained a lifetime board member. During Clark's tenure as chairman, his efforts led to the restoration of precious metals as qualified products for IRAs in the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997.

    Clark took on the unofficial role of "steward" of the industry and was passionate about protecting dealers, collectors and investors in all of his endeavors. To further these goals, Clark was one of the industry leaders who organized CERT, the Coalition for Equitable Regulation and Taxation. Additionally, he made numerous visits to Congressional offices and wrote and edited countless lobbying documents, all for the betterment of the industry. In July 2008, ICTA gave Clark its first ever "Chairman's Award" at its 25th Anniversary Celebration in Baltimore. That award recognized Clark for his years of service to the precious metals and certified coin industries.

    Clark held a B.S. degree from the U.S. Naval Academy, a Master's degree in Aeronautical Systems Engineering from the University of West Florida and was a graduate of the U.S. Naval Test Pilot School. He was a member of the U.S. Naval Academy Foundation Board of Trustees.

    Clark also took time to participate in many philanthropic activities throughout his lifetime. One project that was near to his heart was the West End Neighborhood House in Wilmington, DE, where he served on the Board of Directors. Clark resided in Wilmington with his wife, Lisa Quadrini.

    "Mike's contributions to DSD, IDS and to Dillon Gage were immense," Hanlon says. "I repeatedly turned to him for advice and will miss him and his friendship greatly."

    Campus of Caring Announces Public Phase of $3.6 Million Dollar Capital Campaign for the Hospice Residence at Turkey Hill in Hingham

    Norwell and Hingham, (PRBuzz.com) August 7, 2013 -- Campus of Caring, the non-profit organization that is raising funds for NVNA and Hospice's purchase and renovation of the Hospice Residence at Turkey Hill, announced today the public phase of the $3.6 million dollar capital campaign.

    In a partnership that reflects their shared mission to bring the first non-profit residence to the South Shore, Campus of Caring and NVNA and Hospice are utilizing the resources of both organizations to raise the capital funds necessary to offset the purchase and renovation costs of the Hingham property that will become the new hospice residence.

    Located on Turkey Hill adjacent to the Weir River Farm, the hospice residence will provide a much needed home for people under hospice care who can no longer stay in their own home. No such residence exists for South Shore residents; of the nine hospice homes in the state, the closest are in Needham and on Cape Cod.

    "We are grateful for the generosity of our supporters to date which have included local individuals, businesses, and foundations. As the hospice residence moves toward opening we are inviting everyone to support this much needed community project," said Campus of Caring co-founder and President Ralph E. Tedeschi. "The hospice home will be available for families all across the South Shore and we need complete community wide support to transform the building into a residence where NVNA and Hospice can care for those in need of a home-like setting for end of life care."

    There are many levels of giving available including naming rights to the hospice residence. To learn more about ways that you can personally support this effort with a gift please visit www.campusofcaring.org, or call at 781-610-1407.

    Ft. Lauderdale, FL. (PRBuzz.com) August 7, 2013 -- Based on the success of the February Marine Biology Scholarship for students in Florida, the Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation (CKSF) is once again offering the scholarship to high school students nationwide.

    The Challenge Round begins on Tuesday, October 1 and participants will compete in four multiple choice quizzes. Scoring is based on time and accuracy, and the top scorers advance to the Championship Round. The highest scorer at the end wins a minimum of a $250 scholarship, which may be used at the college of the winner's choice. Other participants will win prizes donated by Nova Southeastern University (NSU) and artwork by Guy Harvey, one of the world's finest marine wildlife artists.

    Unlike other scholarships that require essays, CKSF provides a website with the scholarship content in advance to allow students to learn about marine life. Students have access to this website and cheat sheets to prepare for the scholarship at www.namethatfish.net.

    The winner from the first Marine Biology Scholarship, Patience Hall, explained the simplicity of the competition.

    "I primarily studied the cheat sheet," said Hall. "The quiz took me less than five minutes to complete, and I was quite surprised when I won."

    Along with a scholarship and an autographed piece of artwork, Hall had the opportunity to meet Guy Harvey, who is also a scientist, diver, angler, conservationist and explorer.

    The scholarship was developed by NSU students who wanted to increase awareness of marine life and ocean conservation. They began with a beach clean-up project and later worked with CKSF to grow the Marine Biology Scholarship.

    CKSF is actively looking for additional scholarship sponsors to increase the number and amount of scholarship awards.

    For more information, visit www.cksf.org.

    About Common Knowledge Scholarship Foundation

    Washington, DC (PRBuzz.com) August 7, 2013 -- The Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law today congratulated Catherine Lhamon on being confirmed as the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights at the U.S. Department of Education. The U.S. Senate confirmed Ms. Lhamon after President Obama nominated her earlier this year.

    Ms. Lhamon has a very extensive background in civil rights. Most recently, she served as the Director of Impact Litigation at Public Counsel, the nation's largest pro bono law firm. Prior to that, Ms. Lhamon was at the ACLU of Southern California, where she practiced for a decade, eventually leaving as Assistant Legal Director. In an announcement, Acting Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Seth Galanter wrote "in those positions she has represented a broad cross section of Americans to protect fundamental rights on issues as varied as education reform, fair housing, and economic justice."

    Throughout her career, Catherine Lhamon's main focus as been on education reform. Acting Assistant Secretary Galanter wrote: "Her most recent education suit challenged teacher layoffs that were imposed strictly on a seniority basis, which had a devastating effect on low-income students and students of color. The litigation resulted in a court-approved settlement that protected 75,000 kids annually."

    LDB President Kenneth Marcus commented, "We at the Brandeis Center work closely with the Office for Civil Rights in our fight against campus anti-Semitism, so we are glad to see that President Obama has selected a lawyer with a strong background in civil rights to lead the agency I led nearly a decade ago. Over the last few years, the Obama administration has repeatedly emphasized its commitment to protect Jewish students, and all other students, from unlawful discrimination. We look forward to working with Assistant Secretary Lhamon to reinforce our shared commitment to this goal."

    Recently, the Education Department has taken steps to monitor religious harassment of public school students, responding to the Brandeis Center's recommendation that OCR more vigorously protect the rights of all religious minorities.

    ABOUT THE LOUIS D. BRANDEIS CENTER AND CAMPUS ANTI-SEMITISM

    The Louis D. Brandeis Center, Inc., or LDB, is an independent, nonprofit organization established to advance the civil and human rights of the Jewish people and promote justice for all. The Brandeis Center conducts research, education, and advocacy to combat the resurgence of anti-Semitism on college and university campuses.
