    ( May 28, 2013 -- Drawing on his valuable experience as a Navy veteran and reserve officer Vince Divarco continues his dedication to serving people

    Glendale AZ - When Vince Divarco started his duct cleaning business in 2007 his friends and family were concerned about his venture surviving during a troubled economy. They wondered if a duct cleaning business could grow and thrive with so many homes and commercial buildings in foreclosure. They also questioned his field of choice considering his experience in the military.

    Though Divarco did not have prior experience in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry, he noticed several similarities between his military career and his new business, including working outdoors in temperatures in the 120s. The 12-year Navy lieutenant commander and reserve officer also brings leadership skills to the table.

    When Divarco came home from his second deployment to the Middle East he worked for a transportation company that went out of business in 2007. Drawing on his military experience in managing, and an economics degree from the University of Arizona and previous career experience, Divarco understood business and decided to pursue his dream of being his own boss.

    When the mortgage meltdown led to multiple foreclosures Divarco shifted his air duct cleaning focus from new homes to foreclosure homes and servicing banks and new home buyers. He also has several commercial clients including a government contract with the Air Force. In addition, DUCTZ has earned the trust of high-profile clients who require confidentiality.

    Vince Divarco has earned the respect of area residents and business owners for his dedication to quality service and customer satisfaction. Scottsdale business owner, Fadel Ghadanfar of Desert Comfort Mechanical said, "These guys are always ready to work and always with a smile on their face. It doesn't matter what the job is. Vince is honest, caring, dedicated and very passionate about his work."

    DiVarco's fast response to emergency situations is one reason Anthony Piazza, general manager of Belfor Property Restoration has used the local duct cleaning company. Piazza has called Divarco to handle issues for hospitals, elderly care facilities and schools where compromised systems can create unhealthy living conditions if not addressed quickly. "It's impressive that a guy who spends so much time serving his country in the reserves finds time to make sure we are still taken care," said Piazza.

    Lake Bluff, Illinois ( May 28, 2013 -- As NBA finals approach, BENNU Legal Services, an innovative nonprofit Supporting American Dreams throughout the greater Chicago area, helps job seekers score big through its workforce training program.

    Reintroduced to BENNU's program lineup this spring, the SKILL program creates opportunities for participants to learn professional and administrative skills through classroom instruction and real-life experience. SKILL stands for "Strengthening Knowledge of Immigrants through Legalization and Learning." Funded by a generous grant from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, the SKILL program targets immigrants looking to get a leg up on the job search process, helping them develop skills they can use as vital players in their communities.

    To build the abilities and confidence needed to obtain entry-level office employment, the SKILL program's ten modules focus on specific skill developments, such as typing and word processing, phone etiquette, and appropriate professional attire and demeanor. In addition to 20 hours of classroom training, SKILL participants complete 100 hours of practical application in real office settings, either at BENNU or with a partner organization. According to Denise Rolando, SKILL coordinator, this combination of job training and practical experience sets the SKILL program apart from other workforce development programs. "By participating in this program, participants also make connections and network, which is how you find jobs, relationships and places to live."

    To provide a holistic approach to professional development, the SKILL program incorporates the expertise of volunteer instructors from throughout the community. For example, on one occasion, Chuck Gutman, a college counselor at Waukegan High School, led a goal-setting session for participants with the help of three of his college-bound students. On another occasion, a professional development specialist from a nearby Fortune 200 company delivered a workshop on resumes and interviews.

    Since its reintroduction, BENNU's SKILL program has seen its popularity soar. Weekly sessions are currently held at the Waukegan Public Library, but this fall BENNU hopes to expand the program to multiple locations to accommodate additional communities.

    ( May 28, 2013 -- Smoothies have been around since the mid-1960s, when there was a surging interest in the U.S. in macrobiotic vegetarianism.

    Retail health restaurants sprouted up to cater to the demand.  One of the popular items on menus, along with raw fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, was the fat-free fruit juice smoothie.

    California, one of the focal points of this trend, borrowed the venerable fruit and vegetable juice smoothies from South America, which has a long juicing tradition.

    The West-Coast smoothie is a blend of fruit and/or vegetable juice, fruit, nonfat frozen yogurt or sherbet and crushed ice, with the addition of vitamins and other nutritional supplements. Non-dairy iterations are also popular in this niche. The addition of supplements are what differentiated smoothies in the late 1980s and are defined as functional beverages.

    A second smoothie type, the Southern version, evolved, for the most part, without the inclusion of dairy products.  The two versions now are not as distinct as they once were, as national and regional chains have blurred the distinction a bit.

    The first smoothies did not contain ice milk, sherbet or frozen yogurt and were basically fruit, raw vegetable and/or fruit juice, and ice.  The idea of adding vitamin supplements or other forms of nutrient enhancement had not taken shape yet.
    By the early 1970s, ice milk had been added to make what was then known as the fruit shake, which had been served at local health-food restaurants and within health-food stores. 

    The 1970s, with its earth-tone decor of natural colors, was the renaissance decade for natural health food stores and restaurants. 
    College students, influenced by new theories on environmental and health issues, began to take a greater interest in protecting the environment and improving their nutritional habits. The word natural became the marketing buzzword of many national food brands, from breakfast cereals to carbonated soft drinks (CSDs). Along with the long hair and earth-shoes came the proliferation of "health food" restaurants.

    The 1970s can thus be viewed as a harbinger of the New Age beverages that hit the scene full force in the 1980s.
    Sports and fitness had caught on by the early 1980s.  With this trend of increased diet and exercise came increased awareness of natural foods. Marketers began to openly market calcium and oat-bran as supplements to their products.

    Juice bars offering specialized fortified drinks, also know as functional beverages, began to show up in health food stores and health clubs in greater numbers.  This ushered in the beginning to the first retail stand-alone specialized juice bars, which are popular today.
    With the growing interest in good health and convenience, juice bars experienced rapid growth as more and more people were introduced to the concept of healthy "meal alternatives."

    While U.S. residents have demonstrated some interest in healthy food and lifestyles, they also remain enamored of fast food and convenience; however, this is changing as the United Nations driven 'going green' trend continues. 'Organic' is the new marketing mantra in juice and smoothie bars.  Quick-service retail stores (QSRs), like Jack in the Box and McDonald's began to address this consumer health awareness with the introduction of dessert/snack fruit juice smoothies to their beverage programs. However, juice and smoothie bars have always had command of this niche as a destination because of raw fresh-squeezed and organic products.

    Juice and smoothie bars continue to proliferate as demand for healthier meal alternatives widens. This has been evidenced by the return to the industries roots of the early 1970s. This 'raw evolution', is the second iteration of the juice and smoothie bar industry, which began around 2008. This upscale concept gravitates towards raw fresh-squeezed organic vegetable juices, which are customized to order. This concept is a throwback and essentially a 180 degree turn to the juice bars of the late 1960s and early 1970s, lending to the adage, "everything old is new again."

    Juice Gallery Multimedia is a consulting company for juice/smoothie bar start-ups and a leading provider of training, and business information since 1992. The company offers juice bar software solutions and consulting services to start and run a successful business. International in scope, the company provides cutting-edge industry research and has helped entrepreneurs from all over the world realize the dream of owning their own juice bar.

    Porsche has centralized its spare parts supply

    WITRON offers Premium Logistics for Premium Vehicles

    ( May 28, 2013 -- Porsche, the manufacturer of premium sports vehicles located in Zuffenhausen, has centralized its worldwide spare parts logistics at its location in Sachsenheim. The spare parts center in is currently supplying 3.2 million order lines per year. The logistics general contractor from Parkstein, WITRON Logistik + Informatik, was responsible for the realization and the technical operation of the automated small parts warehouse.

    Porsche, the manufacturer of premium sports vehicles, invested over 100 million Euros in this enormous project. Porsche supplies more than 700 of its centers throughout the world with spare parts from the distribution center in Sachsenheim. The warehouse currently provides 85,000 different parts or material numbers - everything from a single screw to a complete hard top. A sophisticated and leading-edge logistics system with streamlined and efficient processes in the central spare parts center ensures the best quality for worldwide parts distribution and thus optimal customer service. "Porsche's vehicles are a premium product. That is why the customer expects optimal quality - at any time and at any place all over the world - also with regards to spare parts", says to Juergen Wels, Managing Director of Porsche Logistik GmbH and Logistics Manager at Porsche AG.

    Logistics excellence according to the flow principle

    The construction of two halls with a total storage surface of over 1,200,000 square feet was realized in two construction phases within three years. "Our primary goal in the spare parts center in Sachsenheim is to reach excellence in physical logistics according to the flow principle ", explains Juergen Wels. "For that reason, we would like to establish an optimum cost-benefit-ratio within all processes". And time is a very decisive factor. If a retailer orders a spare part at Porsche today, it will be supplied within 24 hours in Europe, and within 48 hours in other regions of the world. And the assortment doesn't just cover the spare parts for current Porsche models. Based on the increased variety of types in past years, it is a growing challenge by itself. The storage also covers spare parts for classic vehicles, special products for trade (e. g. additives), and for a short time and parts for the prototype production of development.
    Warehouse divided into three sections based on logistic requirements
    To enable an optimized process, the spare parts warehouse in Sachsenheim is divided into an automated storage and picking system for small parts, and into manual storage and picking areas for medium-sized and large parts.

    The space-saving and compact storage of the small parts product range in the automated warehouse (AS/RS) is accomplished with plastic totes available in different sizes and dimensions. The medium-sized parts are stored in grid boxes, and the large parts on pallets.

    "This division into three independent units enables us to work with ideal, process-related procedures", says to Wels. "It also allows orders to be placed as late as possible - depending on the respective throughput time". An interim consolidation will no longer be required which is saving time and handling efforts, and guaranteeing a direct material flow.

    A train concept serves as the internal transport system in the spare parts warehouse, connecting the three sections with the receiving area, the packaging area, and the dispatch area. Based on a defined schedule,  solution ensures synchronized material flows and therefore an overall permanent material flow in the warehouse.

    Porsche uses WITRON's OPS and TMS solutions

    The heart of the spare parts center in Sachsenheim is a highly dynamic, automated small parts warehouse (AS/RS) designed and realized by WITRON. With the decision in favor of the logistics expert from Parkstein, Germany both companies further expand their long-lasting partnership. WITRON previously implemented its RF-based TMS (Transport Management System) at Porsche's Ludwigsburg location and several other conventional warehouses in 2000. It optimizes the material flow from receiving to dispatch combined with the warehouse management in SAP LES.  "We rely on long-term partnerships - but the partner must prove himself again and again", says Juergen Wels.

    In addition, Porsche awarded WITRON the prestigious "Porsche Supplier Award" in the category "non-production material". This prize is awarded every year to the best ten suppliers and service providers of the sports vehicle manufacturer.

    WITRON describes the function of the AS/RS as Order Picking System (OPS). The goods-to-man-principle is perfectly suited to handle a very broad range of articles as is usual in the spare parts business. The OPS for Porsche has been designed for maximum flexibility, allowing spare parts to be stored in totes with different heights, in totes with inserts, or on trays that hold several small load carriers.
    The picking workstations are staffed depending on the workload and requirements. So the system is able to flexibly react to fluctuations. As usual in these warehouse systems, the stock per tote is monitored by means of perpetual inventory control. The warehouse is realized as a so-called black box in SAP; only the total stock per material is visible. Depending on the requirements, pick and pack workstations can be dedicated to specific customers or routes. However, the system itself normally carries out prioritization automatically on the basis of outbound times that are specified for every store.

    Separation of material flow from workstations

    "The warehouse currently stores some 50,000 different toteable articles from Porsche's spare parts assortment in a 12-aisle AS/RS that holds 170,000 tote locations. Picking is carried out at 16 ergonomic workstations into both shipping cartons based on a volume calculation and returnable totes from Porsche", says Josef Gallersdoerfer, Member of the Executive Board at WITRON. "An advantage of the OPS system is the separation of the material flow from the workstations through sequence buffers, enabling a highly dynamic picking of articles and a sequenced provision of the storage totes at the pick locations". One sequence buffer supplies two picking stations at the same time. So-called volume orders - a large order from a customer - is buffered in a one-aisle Order Consolidation Buffer after being picked in the AS/RS before it is supplied to the packing locations shortly before dispatch. The aim is to generate as few packages as possible for one customer order. As volume orders have a longer throughput time, picking can be done throughout the day, allowing a more balanced picking process.
    Once the dispatch packages and labeling have been finished, the packages will be transported to the dispatch area. WITRON's RF-based TMS will carry out the loading control and manage non-automated order picking areas which contain parts not suitable for tote storage. The WITRON performance scope also includes the development, production and installation of the entire tote conveyor mechanics (cranes, conveyor system, sequence buffers) executed by its subsidiary FAS. "The Porsche project was a huge challenge in terms of the target dates", says Gallersdoerfer. "We had to fight extremely hard for this project in the course of the concept and contractual phase, and we finally gained the upper hand versus our competitors. We are happy with everything thus far, and we will continue to support our customers in efficiently managing any future requirement changes".

    High supply rate and minimum error rates

    The minimum throughput time in the fully-automated logistics area is around 60 minutes during a regular business day. Around two thirds of all article positions are managed through the AS/RS in Sachsenheim.
    "All of our strategic goals at the new site were achieved. In terms of our spare parts business, Porsche is a logistics pioneer", says Porsche's Head of Logistics, Juergen Wels, summing up the positive achievements. "We have high flexibility in all processes, and benefit from even faster access times". The system availability in the entire process is leading edge - more than 99 percent. Our requirements with respect to short distances and ergonomic processes at all workstations have been realized. 
    Environmental protection played a significant role for the building concept
    In addition to a sophisticated logistics concept, Porsche attached great importance to environmental aspects when building the spare parts logistics center.
    A state-of-the-art photovoltaic system installed on the roof area of the first building and covering 430,000 square feet produces two million kilowatts of power per year. In addition, Porsche has realized a block heating station, and all stacker cranes within the AS/RS are equipped with power re-feed units.
    As one of the first companies to adopt such widespread technologies, Porsche could achieve an environmental certification at its logistics site in Sachsenheim.

    Sustainable further development of the logistics processes

    Madeline Jones, Editor-in-Chief of PLUS Model Magazine, Publically Thanks CEO Mike Jeffries...

    ( May 28, 2013 -- Madeline Jones (,) well known for promoting equal rights for plus size women in fashion, has never been afraid to push the envelope and take out her soap-box to create conversations around-the-world when it comes to body acceptance and fashionable clothing for all women. But today, she goes from soap-box to center stage as she publically thanks CEO Mike Jeffries, not for his rude, disparaging and downright nasty comments when it comes to his company and his view of plus sizes, but instead for bringing to light the prejudices of many in the fashion industry. "Mr. Jeffries comments and business practices are beyond reasonable, but what he did was bring to light a prejudice, the 'dirty little secret' concerning size-acceptance that is prevalent with so many fashion industry leaders," shares Jones. "Mr Jeffries, your comments have opened a much-needed conversation on a broader scale, that I have been having for years... and for this (and only this), I want to publically thank you. NOW that the secret is out, we can have an adult conversation with fashion industry professionals that is long overdue!"

    This June, Ms. Jones proves her point in PLUS Model Magazine (,) that all women are beautiful, regardless of size, and deserve the same right to gorgeous fashions, by featuring one of todays' curviest, talented and stunning plus models, spokesperson and Star of Curvy Girls, Rosie Mercado. "Rosie is amazing on every level, and readers will love getting to know her, getting to know the woman who loves her body and inspires each of us to do the same," comments Jones. "Loving your body does not mean advocating obesity, it means advocating for your life. Someone who loves their body, will take care of their body and pay attention to it and not ignore it."

    Jones continues, "This issue promises stunning images and fashion finds featuring some of todays leading plus size companies who 'get it', when it comes to designing and styling for the curvy body. We will continue to support the companies that support our curves, and partner with companies who are passionate about what they do; other leading, non-plus brands should follow their lead... It's time, it really is!"

    Jones closes by sharing a comment for Mike Jeffries, "Whatever you may think, plus size women are fashionable, sexy and oh yeah... cool!"

    ( May 28, 2013 -- The Crysis 3 video game has been released on the PC platform and won the PC Gamer Most Valuable Game award, along with a host of other awards.

    The Crysis 3 is an award-winning first-person video game developed by Crytek, published by Electronic Arts TM for PlayStation 3, Microsoft Windows, and Xbox 360, and released on 19 February 2013 in North America as the third main installment in a series. It has won several awards including Game Informer Best of Show, PC Gamer Most Valuable Game, and Electric Playground Best of E3 for its excellent design, story, and game play, among other attributes.

    But interested individuals are well-advised to check their personal computers' compliance with the Crysis 3 system requirements. Keep in mind that compliance with system requirements results in excellent enjoyment of the game in terms of graphics, fast response and game play.

    The developers suggest compliance with either the Recommended or the Optimal system requirements, both of which will result in optimum enjoyment. In contrast, compliance with the Minimum system requirements should be given second thought because the personal computer will be unable to cope with the demands of the game, in a manner of speaking. Upgrades to the system will be necessary in the latter case.

    Yet another crucial factor in installing Crysis 3 on a personal computer is the speed of the Internet connection. This is especially true for players who want to pit their skills against other players on an online venue; the faster the speed of the Internet connection, the better for game enjoyment.

The 2013 Festival theme, "A Shared History", reflects on the history of the African continent and also humanity as a whole and acknowledges those who have come before and have ultimately triumphed.

    In addition to showcasing the world's most captivating and cutting-edge talent in film, there will also be live music and dance, art exhibits, a range of film and video industry workshops, seminars, a children's film panorama, bullfighting in Pemba, and dhow races in Unguja.

    Stone Town, the Festival's venue in Zanzibar, is part of the United Republic of Tanzania and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This colorful port provides an exotic setting for the nine days of festivities. ZIFF has captivated serious followers of international film and music, students of African culture both past and present, and travelers interested in arts-centered fun for over a decade. Originally called the Festival of the Dhow Countries, the Zanzibar International Film Festival is now the largest annual event of its kind in East Africa.

    Dr. Aloyce Nzuki, Managing Director of the Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) noted, "the annual ZIFF event, which grows in popularity from year to year, also attracts visitors because of the unique opportunity to combine a rich cultural experience with a safari to some of Tanzania's world-renowned game sanctuaries and archaeological sites. Short flights from Zanzibar can connect visitors to Arusha, the gateway to the northern safari circuit including the Serengeti and Kilimanjaro as well as the Ngorongoro Crater; and to Dar es Salaam (only a 15-minute flight) the gateway to the South, including Ruaha National Park and the Selous Game Reserve. All these create great pre or post Festival tour options."
