WiCis TeleHealth and continuous SpO2 from the Top of the World

Data Streamed Live from Mount Everest

Continuous SPO2. Safety in adventure has seen a game-changer with this technology

It's very cold

WiCis connects climbers in near-real-time to rescue teams and loved ones to provide Telemedicine without limits.

Our goal is keeping our expedition safe & extending the reach and effectiveness of #tememedicine with #continouosSPO2 and #istreme. @Faexploring, @WiCisHealth. Monitor, Share, Protect.”

— Lukas Furtenbach, CEO. Furtenbach Adventures

LAKE TAHOE, NV, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — As climbers head to the top of the world on Mount Everest, WiCis is keeping them safer and extending the reach and effectiveness of TeleHealth. The company is once again proving their wearable technology platform that is continuously monitoring and sharing a climbers' vital signs and location with medical teams, rescue personnel and loved ones within seconds of being collected. May is summit month for Everest, and the challenge this year is to achieve the summit with the highest success rate while never compromising the safety of the climbers. With high oxygen flows and the most modern monitoring methods coming direct from critical care medicine, Furtenbach Adventures and WiCis seek to ensure base-camp oxygen saturations throughout the entire climb, thus never reaching the triggers that cause HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) and HACE (High Altitude Cerebral edema) while on the mountain.

As part of the boundary-expanding expedition #EverestFlash19, which will culminate in a summit attempt on Mount Everest North in just 3 weeks, expedition leader Lukas Furtenbach of Furtenbach Adventures will be wearing a Nonin pulse oximeter with bluetooth-enabled and a Polar heart rate monitor that are continuously tracking heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, skin temperature, geo-location, altitude, speed and bearing as he climbs the world's highest peak. The climber's data is being transmitted in real-time via satellite to WiCis I-Streme Internet platform using a Thuraya Sat Sleeve, that is then analyzed their team medical doctor, Leo Montejo at Base Camp, Advanced Base Camp and the North Col. The heart of the WiCis solution is its web server app called WiCis CareFlows. A fast and modern TeleHealth solution that uses Microsoft Azure web servers. The WiCis TeleHealth solution combines: Forms, Videoconferencing and Vital Signs, all in a single Screen with a configurable Solution that is 100% Cloud-Based and hosted on Microsoft Azure, and designed for XXIst century medicine.

In addition to the continuous stream of biometric and geo-location information, of high-altitude mountaineering the climbers will be sharing updates and perspectives – and amazing views of the Himalayas on social media.

Links to both the live data stream and images will be shared on Twitter: http://twitter.com/wicissports and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wicissports

Monitor, Share, Protect

As a key feature of the wearable platform, WiCis is combining and analyzing biometric data to provide ongoing snapshots of the climbers' overall health status. Serious – and even fatal – medical conditions such as edema, hypothermia and cardiac arrest can occur at high altitudes if climbers push themselves too hard and too far in the ultra-thin air. By continuously monitoring climbers for trends that may indicate they are at risk of developing these conditions, medical teams located in the US can intervene before a crisis emerges. Should an unforeseen medical or other emergency arise, rescue teams will have immediate access to the data needed to assess the climbers’ conditions and their exact location to ensure more rapid and more targeted medical care.

As a further measure of protection for the climbers, OCENS is providing continuous pinpoint weather data and forecasts. This information is displayed in real time on the WiCis dashboard and also on the WiCis Android App, which the climbers are using during the trek to stay in touch.

Proving the Limits to Expand the Reach of TeleHealth

WiCis is proving real-time remote biometric monitoring in the farthest reaches of the planet and under the harshest of conditions in order to expand the reliability and range of telemedicine solutions.

About WiCis: http://wicis.com/ and https://wicishealth.com/

Founded in 2011 by Harvard and Stanford anesthesiologist Dr. Leo Montejo (also founder of Picis), and in the Lake Tahoe area, the company’s goal is to promote the use of mHealth and tracking devices to make adventure sports, the military, and rescue teams to make their missions safer and engage with their followers with real time data that is either private or also available to social media platforms.

About Dr Leo Montejo

Dr. Leo Montejo has been designated the expedition doctor for Everest using the WiCis-Sports solution as a virtual health platform. He did his residency at Harvard in anesthesiology and critical care medicine, has been a Professor at Stanford in this specialty, and is an extreme sports enthusiast. Dr. Montejo has participated in four Himalayan expeditions, where he used the WiCIs I-Streme solution to stream his vitals, and share location and data with his team and family.

Aluminum on Sapphire and Aluminum on Silicon wafers

UniversityWafer, Inc. distributes AlN on Sapphire and AlN on Silicon wafers.

11 ELKINS STREET, STE 330, MA, USA, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — UniversityWafer, Inc., along with our partners, introduce a new line of 50.8mm, 100mm and 150mm UV Grade Aluminum on C-plane SSP Sapphire and AlN on Silicon Prime Grade for HEMT templates.

One major use of AlN on sapphire are UV LEDs. These have many uses. Some of the most powerful applications include irradiating hospital rooms and foundry clean-rooms. AlN on sapphire LEDs disinfects instruments and can purify air and water of germs and bacteria without using chemicals.

LEDs electrical savings over traditional cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) can reach 70%. And unlike CCFL lamps, AlN LEDs don’t contain mercury making them more environmentally to dispose of. AlN LEDs can also be used for non-line-of-sight communications.

Currently, the newest generation AlN on Sapphire LEDs technology is pushing 50,000 hours of life, compared with just 10,000 of the AlN on sapphire LEDs today. The cost saving will only increase with time.

UniversityWafer, Inc. carries a large inventory of AlN on Sapphire substrates. We can also quote unique client specs in small quantities that make it feasible for budget-strapped researchers to obtain the substrates at a reasonable cost. Delivery time is also short.

For production, our AlN on Sapphire can be ramped up to meet client’s demands in a timely and affordable manner.
UniversityWafer, Inc. caters to researchers who want small quantities and short lead-times. Our professional staff is trained to handle even the most difficult low volume requests and we pride ourselves on fast responses and turnaround.

Bulk GaN is also available.

Wrongful Conviction of a General Partner & Veteran who honorably served implicates New York State Judicial officials

Wrongful conviction of Veteran by New York State Judicial Official referred to Trump Administrations DOJ Civil Rights Division

It is well-settled law in New York State that Joint or Common owners to include General Partners, Limited Partners, Tenants in Common, Joint Owners cannot be charged or found guilty of larceny”

— L. Penn

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wrongful Conviction of a General Partner implicates Judicial Misconduct

New York State Officials and Supreme Court Justices Sued for Deprivation of Rights Under the Color of State Law

The City of New York, Manhattan District Attorney, Seven New York State Court Justices and other officials were sued for deprivation of rights under the color of law a civil violation under the law (42 U.S. Code § 1983) and a criminal violation under the law (18 U.S. Code § 242). The Civil Rights Complaints, Penn v. City of New York, et. al., 19-cv-02106 (under 42 U.S. Code § 1983) and Penn v. Amelia Cottrell, et. al., 19-cv-02741 (under Bivens) alleges that an indictment dated February 10, 2014 (New York Supreme Court Indictment #073/2014) and conviction of Lawrence E. Penn III, the Founder of Private Equity firm, The Camelot Group was unlawful from the very beginning. Civil Rights and Bivens actions allege that members of the Securities and Exchange Commission submitted a Complaint to the Manhattan District Attorney with false statements on January 30, 2014 resulting in an unlawful larceny-based indictment under the color of law in order to gain a civil case benefit by use of an unlawful conviction.

See full press release from PR Newswire: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/new-york-state-officials-and-supreme-court-justices-sued-for-deprivation-of-rights-under-the-color-of-state-law-by-the-camelot-group-founder-300827895.html?tc=eml_cleartime

COURT OF APPEALS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK CLARIFIED LARCENY STATUE BY DECLARATORY DECREE TO JUDGES AND PROSECUTORS: JOINT OR COMMON OWNERS CANNOT BE CHARGED OR FOUND GUILTY OF LARCENY

The lawsuits allege that the top count of larceny and the associated counts which rely on larceny are in direct violation of statutory and common law as decided by the Court of Appeals of the State of New York (the highest court in New York State) which ruled by declaratory decree over 25 years ago in long-established law in People v. Zinke, 556 N.Y.S.2d 11, 76 N.W.2d 8 (1990), that a “general partner in limited partnership cannot be found guilty of larceny for misappropriating partnership funds” because they are joint or common owners. Specifically, it is unlawful to charge a joint or common owner with interests in rights to distributions in limited partnership with larceny.

MR. PENN WAS A JOINT AND COMMON BENEFICIAL OWNER OF RIGHTS TO DISTRIBUTIONS FROM THE LIMITED PARTNERSHIP AND ACTING GENERAL PARTNER BY VIRTUE OF HIS INVESTED CAPITAL AND MANAGEMENT RIGHTS SIMILARLY SITUATED TO OTHERS

Mr. Penn, a joint and common beneficial owner with interests in rights to distributions in the limited partnership and the sole acting General Partner in the Limited Partnership called Camelot Acquisitions Secondary Opportunities, LP. Like other General Partners around the country, Mr. Penn established the Partnership, raised all the money, invested the capital, and met the contractual essence of the Partnership Agreement. The Complaints allege that the larceny-based indictment has no basis in law, was used to justify an arrest warrant and a bail of $2.5 million at arraignment as evidenced by Hearing Minutes.

The Securities and Exchange Commission acknowledges in a February 22, 2019 letter that, “From 2007 through 2014, he [Mr. Penn] was the general partner of Camelot Acquisitions Secondary Opportunities, LP (the Fund).” As part of Mr. Penn’s plea, he was required to forfeit his beneficial ownership in the partnership based on the money he put in the partnership. Obviously, you can’t forfeit something you do not own. Complaints alleges that the courts knew Mr. Penn was an owner and that his money was in the partnership.

MR. PENN WAS KNOWN AS A COMMUNITY LEADER WITH A SPOTLESS RECORD, MODEL CITIZEN WHO SUPPORTED VETERANS, WOMEN AND MINORITY CAUSES

The lawsuits allege Mr. Penn was detained in Manhattan Detention Center (MDC) for 14 months under the color of state law from February 10, 2014 to at least March 16, 2015, where a plea under the color of state law was entered. Mr. Penn states, “his plea and conviction are unconstitutionally void and invalid” because he was not informed of the law after direct inquiries to his defense attorney Benjamin Brafman. Prior to his incarceration, Mr. Penn had never been arrested, let alone detained or incarcerated. On the contrary, Mr. Penn is a former military officer who served honorably in the U.S. Army after graduation from the United States Military Academy at West Point with 3 masters’ degrees to include a Columbia MBA, executive education from Harvard, Peking, Oxford and Dartmouth, as well as 20 years of professional management, executive experience in private equity, mergers and acquisitions, and community leadership. He was one of the pioneer private equity secondary market.

LAWSUITS ALLEGE RECORD, FACTS AND LAW ARE CLEAR: NEW YORK OFFICE OF PERKINS COIE, LLP REPRESENTED MR. PENN PRO BONO FOR 2 YEARS REFUTING THE VALIDITY OF THE CONVICTION

Lawsuits allege that Appellate Division First Department’s ruling defies the record, facts, law and logic. as implied by. “Here, it is undisputed that Mr. Penn was the sole owner…of the ownership interest in the limited partnership. As such, Mr. Penn's conviction of larceny should be vacated, just as the defendant in Zinke's conviction of larceny was vacated by this Court.”

COMPLAINTS ALLEGE NON-JUDICIAL ACTIONS BY STATE JUDGES AND PROSECUTORS SHOWING THAT QUALIFIED AND ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY MUST FALL

The Complaints allege that both state and federal judges must uphold New York State law and declaratory decrees and that Federal Judges reliance on an unlawful conviction “on its face” is unconstitutional. Letters referring the cases to several federal and state officials were sent out to New York State legislators, Chief Judge Colleen McMahon of SDNY, U.S. Congressman Hakeem Jeffries of the Judiciary Committee, Department of Justice Civil Rights Division and President Trump.

The lawsuits bring to light unequal treatment of African-American litigants, wrongful convictions of U.S. veterans who honorably serve, the shortcomings of state level plea deals, unfair treatment of those who defend themselves, deprivations of immunities and privileges under long-established law as well as questions as to when immunity falls for state and federal prosecutorial and judicial officials.

Emory University President Claire E. Sterk to Deliver Keynote at Jocks and Pearls Gala Hosted by Atlanta Woman’s Club

Gala Logo

Dr. Sterk

Support for veterans grows in the city of Atlanta. The Atlanta Woman’s Club Seeded Event Program has joined forces with Women Veterans Interactive.

I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful event that supports female veterans”

— President Sterk

ATLANTA, GEORGIA, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Support for veterans grows in the city of Atlanta. The Atlanta Woman’s Club Seeded Event Program has joined forces with Women Veterans Interactive to make a difference in the lives of female veterans by hosting the 2nd Annual Jocks and Pearls Atlanta Gala and Silent Auction at the historic Wimbish House in downtown Atlanta on THURSDAY, JUNE 13, 2019, at 7:00 PM.

The Jocks and Pearls Gala and Silent Auction are designed to utilize the influence of professional sports and professional athletes as vehicles to raise awareness and funds to support the brave women who have served and sacrificed for our country. These unique galas are attended by professional athletes who support women veterans and the mission of WVI and offer personalized sports memorabilia that are up for grabs to the highest bidder along with other appealing silent auction items.

“I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful event that supports female veterans,” says President Sterk. “We live today in a world where the role of the military is more important than ever, as our service members have taken on an expanding presence as global peacekeepers. And when these amazing and brave women leave the military, they return to a society that doesn’t always understand how to help them reenter civilian life. At Emory, we’ve made a commitment to ensuring our service men and women receive the full spectrum of support they need in order to have the futures they deserve.”

Out of 2.2 million female veterans, 1 in 25 become homeless. 85% who leave the military don't feel prepared for the civilian sector, with female veterans more likely to be unemployed than male veterans as they also suffer from high rates of military sexual trauma, PTSD, and suicide.

“I have a niece, a single mom with five children, who served in Iraq,” says Karen Clydesdale, Fundraising Chair for the Atlanta Woman’s Club “Watching her struggles and all that she has done for her country made this goal a priority. When I first met Ginger Miller, our committee knew we had found the organization we were looking for. Ginger’s passion, her devotion, and dedication to the cause are an inspiration to us all. The “Jocks and Pearls” event will be the highlight of our program this year.”

Funds raised from the event will support two of Women Veterans Interactive signature programs, Operation Safety Net and the Women Veterans Transition Space.

New “Beehive Theory” asserts germs may cause the late damage in traumatic brain injury, says Dr. Leslie Norins

Germs in brain, like bees in hive, may attack if head knocked.

Beehive contains many bees, as brain contains many microbes

The mechanism for late consequences of traumatic brain injury is still a mystery; activation of germs already in the brain may be the answer, says new theory.

It's amazing that the hunt for Alzheimer's germs could turn up possibilities that microbes help cause the brain consequences of traumatic brain injuries”

— Leslie Norins, MD, PhD

NAPLES, FL, UNITED STATES, April 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Microbes may be responsible for the deterioration in brain function seen years after participation in football, boxing, soccer and other contact sports, and in soldiers who survive blast injuries, asserts Leslie Norins, M.D., Ph.D. in his new “Beehive Theory.” His formulation was recently published in the peer-reviewed medical journal, Medical Hypotheses.

The serious late sequelae of head trauma most notably include cognitive impairment and behavioral changes, even suicide. The medical label is traumatic brain injury (TBI), with lesser variants being called minor or repetitive TBI or chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). The mechanism translating the trauma into the later complications is unknown, and there is no pharmaceutical preventive or cure.

Dr. Norins says the crucial underpinning of his theory is that scientists have found the normal human brain is not sterile, but is home to various microorganisms– which seem to be living peacefully within it.

The theory’s name comes from the fact that striking a tranquil beehive will incite the peaceful bees to swarm out and attack anyone nearby. Dr. Norins believes that, in like fashion, blows to the head can dislodge the brain’s microbes from their comfortable dwelling spots, and they then release toxins and antigens, which trigger inflammation and brain damage.

Dr. Norins is the CEO of Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc, which encourages research on infectious agents as triggers of Alzheimer’s disease. He became interested in TBI after reading that microbes were present in even normal brains. This situation seems to have been overlooked thus far in most TBI research, he says.

“Hopefully, brain trauma researchers will now begin to study these new facets. It’s possible we could get for TBI a simple blood test, an antibiotic, an anti-inflammatory, or even a vaccine”, he says.

Alzheimer’s Germ Quest, Inc.is a public benefit corporation headquartered in Naples, Florida. It sponsors the $1 million Challenge Award for the scientist who persuasively proves that a microbe causes Alzheimer’s disease, and encourages research on this possibility. It neither seeks nor accepts outside donations.

Stop Soldier Suicide Co-Founder Receives Meritorious Public Service Medal

Stop Soldier Suicide announces Executive Chairman, Brian Kinsella, received the Meritorious Public Service Medal from the Chief of Staff of the Army.

ARLINGTON, VA, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Stop Soldier Suicide is honored to announce that Executive Chairman, Brian Kinsella, received the Meritorious Public Service Medal from the Chief of Staff of the Army during the Chief's Salute at Commy Hall, Fort Myer, Virginia.

The award was presented in a ceremony by General Mark Milley, the 39th Chief of Staff of the Army, in recognition of Kinsella’s advocacy and resolute support for the men and women of the Army, and for his commitment to helping stop veteran and soldier suicide. Past recipients of the award include Senator John McCain, Senator Elizabeth Dole, Gary Sinise, and Trace Adkins.

“This is a humbling honor that I accept on behalf of my co-founders Nick Black and Craig Gridelli,” Kinsella says. “I also accept it on behalf of the entire team of Stop Soldier Suicide who work hard every day to improve the lives of service members, veterans, and military families.”

Other recipients this year include Anthony Hassan, CEO of Cohen Veterans Network, one of Stop Soldier Suicide’s key partners.

Stop Soldier Suicide was founded in 2010 amid the worst suicide crisis the military has ever seen. Today, the risk of suicide is 50% higher for veterans than for their peers who have not served. Stop Soldier Suicide’s Resource Center is staffed with social workers who connect one-on-one with soldiers, veterans, and military family members to get the resources they need.

“This is such a great recognition of the work this team has done, and we’re excited about where we’re going,” says CEO Chris Ford. “Our vision is by 2030 veteran suicide rates will be at parity with nonveterans in America.”

The nonprofit’s resources include mental health, PTSD and TBI referrals, emergency financial aid, housing assistance, alternative therapies, education, and retreats.

Helicopter Technology Central and Eastern Europe Conference 2019

In under 4 weeks’ time, Helicopter Technology Central & Eastern Europe is opening its doors to heads of Air Force and Helicopter Programme Managers in Prague.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, April 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — There’s less than 4 weeks left until the 5th annual Helicopter Technology Central & Eastern Europe conference takes place in Prague, Czech Republic on 22nd-23rd May.

Delegates of the two-day event will benefit from comprehensive briefings on the crucial topics of modernisation and readiness of regional rotary fleets, procurement goals, national security, operations and interoperability, platform and programme upgrades, and more.

A key focus of the 2019 conference is the importance of collaboration between nations and allies, including international support from the US, as well as collaboration involving NATO and Eastern European nations. This is vital for improving collective military strength, joint defence and security initiatives, and enhancing interoperability.

Key Sessions on International Rotary Collaboration from the US Air Force, JAPCC & EDA:

“Maximising US Support in Regional Operations for Increased Interoperability” presented by Colonel Jason Gingrich, Senior Military Advisor to SECDEFREPEUR and USNATO DEFAD, US Air Force.

“Enhancing Future Capabilities for the next 35 to 50 years: Developing Future Rotocraft Technologies” presented by Lieutenant Colonel Joefrey Petit, Support RW, JPR, Littoral & Special Air Ops, JAPCC.

“EDA Helicopter Programmes – Fostering International Cooperation and Interoperability” presented by Mr Jose Pablo Romera Martin, EDA Project Officer Rotary Wing, European Defence Agency.

Previous years’ Helicopter Technology events have been praised by leading defence forces in both Central and Eastern Europe and have hosted more senior heads of Air Force and Helicopter Commands than any other helicopter event in Europe.

This year’s event will host an international gathering of senior military and industry speakers and attendees as they share key perspectives on programme updates, training, rotary collaboration, procurement goals and new technologies.

The event brochure with the full agenda and speaker line up is available online at http://www.futurehelicopter.co.uk/einpr, where interested parties can also register.
