ELERTS' See Say App Combats Human Trafficking; Wins SWTA 'Be The Solution' Award

ELERTS: best-in-class emergency communication software, empowered by community-sourced reporting of safety and security concerns

Transits Can Help Fight Human Trafficking

Ten Leading Transit Agencies power up ELERTS' app to receive "Human Trafficking" reports from employees and passengers

The public needs an easier way to report suspicious behaviors, without having to get overly involved with the authorities, and ELERTS enables transit agencies to make that happen for riders.”

— Kristen Joyner, Executive Director of SWTA

WEYMOUTH, MA, UNITED STATES, March 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — ELERTS Corp, the leading provider of See Something Say Something mobile apps for transportation agencies, announced that it received the 'Be The Solution' Award for its efforts to combat Human Trafficking in transit, at the South West Transit Association's (SWTA) 2018 Freedom Through Transit Conference. SWTA is an association representing transit agencies in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

SWTA is passionate about bringing awareness to the crime of human trafficking and giving hope to victims, celebrating the efforts of public transportation agencies as leaders in this fight. Reporting human trafficking is the newest crime-fighting capability available in ELERTS See Say app and it has been quickly adopted. Already, transit agencies are receiving reports of Human Trafficking from passengers via their ELERTS app.

Human Trafficking is a crime involving the exploitation of someone for the purposes of compelled labor or a commercial sex act through the use of force, fraud, or coercion. It is a large problem in transportation, whether on the ground or in the air, because trains, buses and airplanes are used to transport victims to their final, dismal destinations. Catching traffickers while in transit is one of the few opportunities to do so before their victims disappear from public sight. The Department of Transportation developed the Transportation Leaders Against Human Trafficking (TLAHT) initiative to encourage transportation and travel industry stakeholders to maximize their collective impact in combating human trafficking.

"It's important to empower transit agency employees and riders with an easy way to report suspicious behaviors, especially those behaviors that may fall into the human trafficking category," said Kristen Joyner, Executive Director of SWTA. "Trafficking victims are often 'hidden in plain sight,' and people may spot criminals transporting their victims. The public needs an easier way to report suspicious behaviors, without having to get overly involved with the authorities, and ELERTS enables transit agencies to make that happen for riders."

With a mobile app like ELERTS See Say, transit agencies can empower people to report suspected trafficking with the push of a button on their phone. 16 leading transit agencies already use ELERTS See Say app to crowd-source safety and security concerns.

"Transportation plays a role in human trafficking and we want to deploy tools to help rescue victims as they are moved to a new destination – collectively, we can make a difference," said Ed English, CEO of ELERTS. "The more eyes and ears keeping watch, the better. ELERTS helps riders feel safer on transit systems."
Transit agencies that have enabled Human Trafficking reporting in their ELERTS-powered apps include:
1. Atlanta MARTA
2. Philadelphia SEPTA
3. San Francisco BART
4. Dallas DART
5. Sacramento SacRT
6. Boston MBTA
7. Buffalo NFTA
8. Jacksonville JTA
9. Tri-Delta ECCTA
10. Santa Clara VTA

Mission: Clean Water for All

Largest Solar Powered Water Pumping

WolrdWater(tm) & Solar Celebrates 34 Yrs of Water Pumping for Large Scale Irrigation & Purification Using Only Sunshine, & Celebrates UN World Water Day 2018.

PRINCETON, NEW JERESEY, USA, March 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
WORLDWATER® & SOLAR TECHNOLOGIES CELEBRATES
WORLD WATER DAY AND 34-YEARS AS A LEADER IN CLEAN WATER

(PRINCETON, NJ – March 14, 2018) On March 22, 2018, WorldWater® and Solar Technologies (WWST), America’s longest continuing solar technology company, will celebrate World Water Day and 34 years as a leader that has revolutionized the field of clean water and solar power. WWST’s activities began nearly a decade before World Water Day was officially established by the United Nations in 1993.

“Ensuring that people have access to clean water is one of the most urgent civic and public health crises of the 21st century,” said Quentin T. Kelly, Chair and CEO of WWST. “This is our mission.”

WWST’s is the only company with the solar technology to power large motors of 600 hp or more, pumping water for agriculture and/or municipal water systems. The company also has developed powerful solar stand-alone units which create near- instant drinking water from polluted sources in disaster crises, enabling solar powered immediate infrastructure in remote regions.

WWST was the first company of its kind to unite solar power technology with large water pumps and purification systems. “I was in Sudan and saw thousands of people suffering from lack of water, as we’re now about to see in many more places, including highly developed societies such as Cape Town, South Africa and cities in South America. I came back to Princeton from Sudan and with their University engineers developed advanced technology to harness the power of the sun capable of providing large volumes of clean water, ” recalls Mr. Kelly.

WWST patented solar technology sets it apart from its competitors. Its track record of implementing large-scale solar powered agricultural solutions includes a citrus ranch in Borrego Springs, CA, pumping from a 1000 foot well to deliver 1000 gallons of water per minute. WWST is the first company in the world to pump water for farm irrigation in the Sahara Desert in Egypt, turning the desert green.

The company operates in over 30 countries worldwide, providing megawatts of solar electricity and solar agricultural water.

It is recognized that less than 1% of the world’s water is fit for human consumption, including drinking, industrial and agricultural needs. The World Health Organization estimates that by the year 2025, some 40% of the world’s population will be without access to clean water. WWST can provide on-site immediate relief in humanitarian crises such as Puerto Rico’s plight following the recent hurricanes; Haiti after the earthquake of 2010; Darfur, Sudan; Japan after its earthquake and tsunami, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Purchasers of WWST’s solar technology, including life-saving solar purification units such as the Mobile MaxPure® Reverse Osmosis system for desalinating as well as purifying water, include the US State Department, through the US General Services Administration (GSA); the US Army, Marines and Coast Guard, the US Dept. of Agriculture, the US Parks Service, and numerous private buyers, NGO’s and Foundations.

“Getting these life-saving water systems to the people in the highest areas of need is our top priority,” said Carolyn Kelly Colella, founder and Executive Director of WWST’s affiliate GlobeWater® and Solar Technologies (GWST). Ms. Kelly Colella, whose company focuses on empowering women to be leaders in clean water and clean power, added that “at WWST and GWST, we want to take the occasion of World Water Day to highlight the pressing issues facing women and the world at large to help ensure universal and immediate access to clean water.”

For World Water Day, WorldWater is sponsoring a Virtual Run organized by the nonprofit MissionCleanWater. Donations raised through this fundraiser will bring clean water to the Neema community in rural Kenya. For more information, visit MissionCleanWater.org/run to learn how you can help provide clean water to this under-served community.

About WorldWater® & Solar Technologies
Since 1984, WorldWater® has provided viable solutions for solar electric power and water crises globally, including patented solar-powered systems that can provide electric power as well as pump hundreds of thousands of gallons per day from lakes, rivers and deep wells for irrigation and municipal water supply. The company also produces and installs standalone, portable water filtration technologies that convert sea water and up to 30,000 gallons of polluted fresh water into clean water per day for drinking, cooking and hygiene.

AMCD Calls on Trump Administration and Prince Salman to Increase Pressure on Iran

Iran's Propaganda Machine is in Full Swing

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, March 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Mideast Coalition for Democracy wants the Trump administration to increase pressure on Iran, not to decrease it as Philippe Nassif, executive director of In Defense of Christians in the Middle East (IDC) is advocating. Writing in The Hill, Nassif argues that the US should pressure Saudi Arabia’s visiting crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, to stop fighting against the Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen.

Using Iranian weaponry, the Houthis have attacked on a US Destroyer, harassed and attacked Saudi, Emirati and other merchant ships, and have launched Iran-supplied missiles into Saudi Arabia proper, aimed directly at their civilian airport in Riyadh – a clear act of terrorism.

AMCD believes the correct response to Iran’s aggression in Yemen is to increase military pressure so that Iran must stretch its resources in Yemen at the same time it is deeply involved in Syria, thereby weakening the Islamic Republic overall. Prince Salman is proving to be an aggressive reformer seeking to bring Saudi Arabia into the modern world. He should be applauded and supported for his efforts to loosen the onerous restrictions on women in particular. Iran, on the other hand, is regressing and becoming ever more strictly Islamist as evident by its mass arrests of women who were peacefully protesting the government by merely removing their headscarves.

“Nassif has written smart pro-Iranian propaganda piece to advocate that the US pressure the Arab Coalition to quit Yemen and legitimize Iran’s role as a negotiator,” said AMCD Co-Director, Tom Harb. “Worse it is written by a group said to be defending Christians. There are no Christians in Yemen but there is an Iranian backed NGO in Washington DC that is used by Teheran to defend its interests in the region. Unfortunately, IDC is revealing itself to be an Iranian tool.”

“Where are the IDC’s recommendations for the Mullahs and Hezbollah who continue to terrorize their own people and crush any who stand in their way?” asked AMCD President John Hajjar. “It was Iranian interference that has nurtured and prolonged the conflict in Yemen. Iranian aggression must not be rewarded.”

We urge the President to support reform in the Middle East, not to strengthen its most regressive regime.

Mid-term Report Card on Sri Lanka’s Implementation of its Commitments to UN Human Rights Council: TGTE

TGTE has chosen to do an assessment of the level to which those 25 commitments undertaken by Sri Lanka have been implemented. Five grading system has been used

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND, March 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

In September 2015, the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) passed by consensus Resolution No.30/1 co-sponsored by Sri Lanka itself, and giving 2 years for Sri Lanka to implement the 25 commitments it undertook to address grave charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity by State forces. In 2017, Sri Lanka and the UNHRC reaffirmed those commitments in Resolution No. 34/1 and Sri Lanka was given an extension of further 2 years to fulfill international expectations. One year has now passed.

Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE) has chosen to do an assessment of the level to which those 25 commitments undertaken by Sri Lanka have been implemented.

The following five grading system has been used:

P – Pass.
P(d) – Pass of dubious value.
F – Fail.
F(c) – Failed due to Cunning.
F(a) – Failed Atrociously.

Out of the 25 commitments: One commitment merited a P, Three commitments merited P(d), Nine commitments merited straight F, Two merited F(c), and Ten commitments received an atrocious F(a).

Below, please find the Link to the Report Card.

The following was added as a footnote to the Mid-term Report card:

The reason why Sri Lanka bagged such a failure in its Mid-Term Report Card is not due to lack of capacity, but due to the fact that the Sri Lankan State is not ethnically neutral. It is the cultural warhead of Sinhala Buddhist chauvinism, with the judicial principle that the accused cannot be a judge being seriously violated (See www.referICC.com) and a deep sense of impunity prevailing for a long time in the country. A cunning and dubious behavior has been the main strategy of Sri Lanka in dealing with international pressure.

Staying in the same class [UN Human Rights Council – UNHRC] is not going to improve Sri Lanka’s commitment to Transitional Justice. We believe the time has come to send the failed/disgruntled student to the correction center [International Criminal Court-ICC], so it gets to learn more about ethnic neutrality, accountability, remedial justice, integrity, empathy and genuine remorse for wrongs committed.

Echoing the words of the former U.S. War Crimes Ambassador, Stephen Rapp, made in Geneva on 12 March, 2018, we say “Impunity Risks Creating Further and Further Violence” as vividly demonstrated in the past two weeks of anti-Muslim violence in Sri Lanka."

Impunity is threat to peace and security.

VAIHINGEN, BW, GERMANY, March 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fair rights and conditions for Africa – Free Online Marketplace

The genial idea of the open online marketplace for everybody has opened a lot of people's eyes and

Choice Is An Illusion

A nonprofit corporation opposed to assisted suicide and euthanasia, worldwide

HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT , USA, March 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dore: “The bill applies to people with years or decades to live.”

“The bill is sold as assuring individual choice and control. The bill is instead stacked against the individual and a recipe for elder abuse.”

Hartford, CT – Attorney Margaret Dore, president of Choice is an Illusion, which has fought assisted suicide/euthanasia legalization efforts in many states and now Connecticut, made the following statement in connection with tomorrow’s legislative hearing on a bill seeking to legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia in that state. (HB 5417, Public Health Committee Hearing, LOB, Room 2C, Tuesday, 03/20/18, 11:00 am).

“There is a bill pending before the Connecticut General Assembly, which seeks to legalize physician-assisted suicide, assisted suicide and euthanasia as those terms are traditionally defined,” said Dore. “The bill describes these practices as ‘aid in dying,’ but there is no requirement that patients be dying. Indeed, ‘eligible’ persons may have years or decades, to live.”

Dore said, "The bill is sold as assuring individual choice and control. The bill is instead stacked against the individual and a recipe for elder abuse.” Dore elaborated, “This is especially an issue for people with money, meaning the middle class and above. In short, their heirs and other predators want their money.”

“The easiest thing to see is a complete lack of oversight at the death,” said Dore. “ No doctor, not even a witness, is required to be present when the lethal is administered. If the patient objected, or even struggled, who would know? The bill creates the perfect crime.”

Dore said, “The bill seeks to legalize assisted suicide and euthanasia for people who are ‘terminal,’ which is defined as a doctor’s prediction of less than six months to live. In real life, such persons can have years, even decades, to live.”

“Treatment can lead to recovery,” said Dore. “I have a friend who was talked out of using Oregon’s assisted suicide law in 2000. Her doctor convinced her to be treated for cancer instead. She is still alive today, seventeen years later.”

“Doctors can also be wrong about life expectancy, sometimes way wrong," said Dore. "This is due to actual mistakes and the fact that predicting life expectancy is not an exact science. A few years ago, I was met at the airport by a man who at age 18 had been diagnosed with ALS and given 3 to 5 years to live, at which time he was predicted to die by paralysis. His diagnosis had been confirmed by the Mayo Clinic. When he met me at the airport, he was 74 years old. The disease
progression had stopped on its own.”

Dore said, “I have had two clients whose fathers signed up for the lethal dose. In the first case, one side of the family wanted the father to take the lethal dose, while the other did not. He spent the last months of his life caught in the middle and traumatized over whether or not he should kill himself. My client, his adult child, was also traumatized. The father did not take the lethal dose and died a natural death.”

“In the other case,” said Dore, “it's not clear that administration of the lethal dose was voluntary. A man who was present told my client that his father had refused to take the lethal dose when it was delivered (“You’re not killing me. I’m going to bed”), but then took it the next night when he was high on alcohol. The man who told this to my client subsequently recanted. My client did not want to pursue the matter further.”

“If the Connecticut bill becomes law, there will be new lethal paths of elder abuse, which will be legally sanctioned," said Dore. "People with years, even decades to live, will be encouraged to throw away their lives. Even if you like the concept of assisted suicide and euthanasia, the proposed bill has it all wrong.”

Greek law firm, GLYKOS, poised to establish UAE operations through strategic partnerships

Glykos explores Middle East market

DUBAI, DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, March 18, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dubai, UAE – March 2018: Greek law firm GLYKOS has announced its ambitious plan to break into the United Arab Emirates’ (UAE) legal sector as part of its long-term strategy to expand its operations to the Middle East using the UAE as its gateway to the region.
GLYKOS, one of the most experienced law firms in Greece, is seeking to enter the UAE market through strategic partnerships from across dominant sectors such as real estate, tourism, start-ups, and energy.

Other key partnerships the law experts are eyeing includes the region’s vibrant labour sector and the medical industry, especially following Dubai’s vision to establish itself a medical tourism hub.

According to the 2017 The Lawyer Global 200, Dubai has undoubtedly positioned itself as the hub for international law firms. And with over 240 partners based in the Emirate, compared to second-placed Abu Dhabi with over 80, Dubai’s ongoing and upcoming projects is likely to fuel the trend as more international legal experts rush to cash in on demand for premium services.

The report also indicates that the UAE is the eighth most internationally diverse region by law-firm density, with 52 in the Global 200 having a presence there.

According to GLYKOS spokesperson, the UAE region fits perfectly within its expansion plans and vision to offer proactive legal solutions to developed and emerging markets leveraged on its wealth of expertise in legal counsel.
Through partnerships, GLYKOS also hopes to attract and boost other economic and trade ties between the two nations by offering strategic advisory services to companies and individuals looking for investment opportunities in the two countries.

“As one of the most experienced law firms in Europe, GLYKOS is now seeking to expand its operations and position itself as a global law expert. The Middle East and its vibrant economy is ideal as it’s a perfect fit for us especially in areas that we have excelled at for decades. Through UAE as our gateway to the expansive region, GLYKOS will bring best-in-class legal services that will drive businesses and in turn rejuvenate the industry.” said Christina Glykou, co-owner, GLYKOS.

GLYKOS is seeking to offer streamlined legal processes that are benchmarked on high international standards especially in business law. This, according to Christina, is a crucial even as more international brands continue to single out the UAE and Dubai in particular as their next growth frontier.

“Our unrivalled expertise in business law, for instance, will help international and local companies that are looking to kick-start their expansion drive either through franchising or dealership or those that are seeking business refinement as well as National, Community and International Trademarks Registration services.” said Christina.

She went on to add, “UAE holds a liberal prospect. It has a modern, high quality business infrastructure, a beneficial tax plan for businesses and individuals, and a stable business climate. As for the legal companies, the strong friendship between Greece and the UAE provides a unique opportunity for further cooperation in investments between the two nations.” noted Christina.

Currently, GLYKOS has established clients and operations in Russia. Other key regions that are on the pipeline include the Middle East among others.

ENDS

“When I Lost My Brother, My Social Worker Helped Me Get Through It”
National Healthcare Provider Celebrates Social Workers

NEW YORK – “When I lost my brother, my social worker helped me get through it,” shared a young, bright member of Girl Scout Troop 989. The Troop recently partnered with CareRite Centers, LLC in celebration of National Social Work Month in March. The observance is dedicated to recognizing the countless hours social workers spend helping families in need. Hundreds of thousands of professionals in the United States refer to social work as their calling. The field of social work is a brilliant craft, led by some of the most incredible professionals who selflessly care for others. Social workers are in possession of admirable traits in which they carry throughout their daily practice; they constantly instill an unwavering commitment to support those around them, guiding those in need to relief and peace, and lifting others when they are down. They consistently put others before themselves, and mirror all the traditional renderings of a model caregiver. As a precious resource, CareRite Centers, a nationally-acclaimed provider of skilled nursing and rehabilitation therapy, recognizes their passions daily and is a proud employer of hundreds of social workers across the nation.

CareRite partnered with Girl Scout Troop 989 in an effort to allow today’s youth to thank these caregivers for acting as leaders and role models in the community. The troop shared alongside executive leadership of CareRite why they were thankful for these heroes. “My social worker was there for me and my mom when my grandma got sick,” echoed throughout a silent room as a panel of the nation’s leading healthcare professionals were captivated by their personal fragility.

“CareRite Centers proudly supports hundreds of social work professionals across the nation. We are so thankful for the thousands of heroes we have within each and every discipline throughout our network, who go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure incredible levels of customer service and patient satisfaction.
