USB2U Introduce their watermarking feature




Irrespective of the quality of the printing process on a USB Branded Memory Stick, overtime it will succumb to wear and tear. So how can you ensure that the brand is always upmost in the user’s mind?

Well USB2U has launched a fantastic new service called Watermarking!!

The Watermarking works by having a logo or artwork of your choice programmed onto the Promotional USB Memory Sticks. This then appears as the background wallpaper in the drive window when your client plugs the Branded Memory Stick into a usb port.

This is a great way to reinforce your brand, add a promotion, provide contact details.

It is very simple to set on your Customised USB Stick and is guaranteed to impress! You could have your artwork or logo tiled or stretched to fit the drive window or as subtle as a single logo.

Think about how the wallpaper feature works on the desktop of your laptop or PC, this works in exactly the same way!

Below are comments from customers who have chosen the Wall Paper Feature:

“an absolutely brilliant feature – thanks for arranging it”

“we didn’t even know this was possible until our USB2U Account Manager discussed the idea with us, but we’d have it for all our future orders”

“a fantastic add-on to an already excellent promotional item”

Royalty rates settled for college internet radio

collegeradio12

College stations can now pay $100 yearly and forgo reporting playlists.

Campus-based internet radio broadcasters have an established royalty rate after an agreement was reached with SoundExchange, a nonprofit organization created to collect and dole out music royalties to record labels.

The July 31 agreement with College Broadcasters Inc. was one of three royalty rate negotiations settled after months of back-and-forth negotiations. SoundExchange also settled royalty rates with the National Religious Broadcasters Music License Committee and SIRIUS-XM. The agreement is good through 2015.

College webcasters will pay $500 per year if they don’t exceed 159,140 listener hours. If that limit is exceeded–unlikely among college stations with small audiences–the station will have to pay the higher commercial rate.

SoundExchange also settled college webcasters’ concerns about reporting which music is played and how many times it is aired. The new deal states that if a webcaster pays $100 at the beginning of the year, no reporting is necessary.

Colin Rushing, an attorney for SoundExchange who negotiated the deals with College Broadcasters and the other organizations and companies, said the frequent staff turnovers on campus-based stations–especially smaller ones–made it difficult to accurately report what music was being played and how copyright royalty fees should be paid out.

“Reporting is a real problem for educational institutions,” Rushing said, adding that the royalty rate agreement is available for any college broadcaster who wants to opt in. “They don’t have the same institutional memory. … They face special challenges.”

While many college radio stations don’t keep reliable records of what songs they’ve played over a week, month, or year, some stations, such as the University of Vermont’s WRUV-FM, keep meticulous reports on hand.

The station, which streams its broadcasts online, uses a web-based program called RadioActivity, which reports, logs, and tracks radio station playlists. Disc jockeys at WRUV have a username and password, and the artist, record label, genre, and other information is logged into the program for every song that is played during each DJ’s two-hour shift, said station manager McCrae Hathaway, a junior at the University of Vermont.

“We have a pretty accurate way of knowing when and what songs are played,” said Hathaway, who also DJs for WRUV.

Staff turnover isn’t constant at Vermont, Hathaway said, adding that most DJs train for the position as freshmen and work for the station until they graduate four years later.

“I found they are pretty loyal to the station once they become involved,” he said. “They stick around.”

In March 2007, a ruling by the federal Copyright Royalty Board dramatically raised the rates that internet radio stations must pay artists and recording labels–leading many online radio stations to warn that the new rates would put them out of business by eating up as much as 70 percent of revenue.

College Broadcasters officials did not return a reporter’s queries as of press time, but an Aug. 1 blog post on the organization’s web site said the SoundExchange deal “puts our members in a much better position in the future,” because the royalty rate arrangement sets a baseline for negotiations after the current deal expires in six years.

Agreeing to webcaster rates, Rushing said, was a landmark step in finalizing royalty fees, but details of the deal could be tweaked in future agreements.

“To a large extent, this is a bit of an experiment,” he said.

Earlier this year, SoundExchange struck new online royalty agreements with the National Association of Broadcasters and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.

Traditional AM and FM broadcasters are exempt from copyright royalty rates for over-the-air radio play, because that airplay is thought to provide free promotion for artists and labels. But the broadcasters are subject to the new rates for any songs streamed over radio station web sites.

ED accelerates $11.37 billion stimulus schedule

The second round of stimulus funding for Title I, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and the Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) program, totaling $11.37 billion in all, will be made available to states by Sept. 1, about a month earlier than originally determined–and the quicker those dollars reach schools, the more jobs and educational technology programs might be saved.

U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan announced the accelerated timeline on Aug. 3, saying the earlier release of funds will “help states and districts expedite stimulus spending.” The first half of Title I, IDEA, and VR stimulus funding was made available to states beginning April 1.

Education stakeholders said Duncan’s announcement might be an attempt to urge states and school systems to use their stimulus funding quicker, because states have been slow to spend so far. According to weekly spending reports posted on the U.S. Department of Education (ED) web site, as of July 24 only 21.8 percent of available funding had been spent.

The second half of stimulus money for these three programs includes $5 billion in Title I funding, $6.1 billion in IDEA funding, and $270 million in VR funding.

A recent Census report revealed that per-pupil spending in public schools varies widely from state to state, but that federal government contributions account for a relatively small portion of K-12 funding–although the $100 billion destined for education in the economic stimulus package will likely change that equation in the coming years, said Russ Whitehurst, director of the Brown Center on Education Policy and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution.

The report, based on 2007 figures, shows the country’s 15,638 school districts received $556.9 billion in government funding that year. Of that amount, only 8.3 percent came from the federal government. The remainder–about $510 billion–came from state and local sources, it said.

If distributed over one year, the stimulus money would account for about 20 percent of per-pupil revenue–a huge windfall for districts grappling with budget shortfalls and falling property assessments.

In Florida, education officials said federal stimulus funds have saved approximately 26,000 K-12 teaching jobs and more than 15,000 higher-education jobs. In April, Florida received more than $245 million in Title I funding, $335 million in IDEA funding, and $16 million in VR funds.

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg estimated that 14,000 city school teachers and other staff members would have been laid off without the stimulus money. New York’s first half of funding included more than $454 million in Title I funding, $409 million in IDEA funding, and $13 million in Vocational Rehab funds.

Alabama state school officials estimated that the stimulus dollars will save about 2,600 education jobs. In April, Alabama received more than $81 million in Title I funding, $97 million in IDEA funding, and $5 million in VR funds.

To get their second installment of federal stimulus dollars, states will have to show ED officials how the first half of the money was used.

ED is cautioning school leaders that the stimulus marks a large, one-time increase in federal education funding–and they shouldn’t count on having this much funding every year. Bruce Hunter, associate executive director of the American Association of School Administrators, said federal officials are billing these funds as a “unique opportunity to make short-term investments with the potential for long-term benefits.”

In other words, he said, these formula-based stimulus grants are intended to fund sustainable projects and activities that will improve teaching, learning, and educational outcomes for all students, and especially those with disabilities. School leaders should be able to sustain projects even after the stimulus money runs out.

Suggested uses for IDEA funds include buying assistive technology (AT) devices for students; training students and staff members to use AT devices; and improving data collection and reporting abilities, Hunter said. These recommendations come directly from ED officials.

Suggested uses for Title I funds include purchasing online courseware to supplement traditional school offerings; investing in staff development; and implementing longitudinal data systems to better track and improve student achievement.

College application process gets easier with Wisconsin e-Transcript Initiative

 

College application process gets easier with Wisconsin e-Transcript Initiative
Students, high schools and colleges will benefit statewide
 
Wisconsin is launching a statewide e-Transcript Initiative in partnership with Docufide Inc.; sponsored by University of Wisconsin System (UWS), the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (WAICU), the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS), the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and Midwestern Higher Education Compact. The initiative will allow students at high schools and colleges throughout Wisconsin to utilize Docufide’s Secure Transcript services at a significant discount.
 
“Wisconsin has been a leader in education for decades and continues in this role by supporting the e-transcript initiative which builds access to higher education by providing an economical alternative for high school students and their counselors to send transcripts to their prospective colleges.” Ruth Joyce, Director of Student Services, University of Wisconsin – Extension.
 
Students and alumni among public and private schools will be able to order online and have their official transcripts electronically delivered to any participating Wisconsin college. They will also be able to send transcripts to over 4,000 other colleges and universities nationwide, as well as to 3rd party destinations, electronically or on security paper mailed by Docufide. Any college or university can register with Docufide to receive transcripts in the format they desire for free. Docufide has been successfully processing transcripts electronically for high schools across 38 states for the past six years.
 
The Wisconsin state participation agreement follows the award of the Midwestern Higher Education Compact (MHEC) Regional Electronic Transcript Initiative (ETI). In addition to Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Michigan and Indiana, several other MHEC states are currently considering joining the initiative. Twelve states make up the MHEC region and include: Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.
 
A cost savings for all stakeholders
High schools spend an estimated $6.70 per paper-based transcript processed. With an average of six transcripts per student being requested, that adds up to over $40 per college bound student. Colleges will also save money calculated at over $9 per incoming transcript.
 
Implementing an electronic high school transcript system region-wide to reduce such costs and improve student’s access to college was recommended by MHEC’s Student Access Advisory Committee, comprised of professionals from the twelve MHEC member states.
 
Technology solutions can help relieve the strain and provide the data for better informed decision making. According to John Reese, Docufide’s CEO, "Everyone sees the benefits in electronic transcripts. The hard task, which we uniquely address, is being able to connect all high schools to all colleges, independent of the student information systems they use, without requiring changes to the existing systems. We are looking forward to working with high schools, colleges and universities in Wisconsin to provide their students with these and other derivative services."
 
Schools ready to use Docufide within the state
 Thirteen schools have requested to participate as pilot schools. These schools will be the first to implement the service and will provide valuable feedback on the service benefits to all other Wisconsin high schools interested in participating.
 
The initiative will be guided by a project advisory committee with members from University of Wisconsin System (UWS), the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (WAICU), the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS), the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and K-12 districts. The MHEC office and Docufide are working collaboratively with these representatives to implement and utilize the service among all interested schools statewide.  Already, the committee has 100% of Wisconsin’s public and independent colleges registered and ready to receive the schools e-transcripts.

 Vantage Learning Education Initiative Announces More Than $650,000 in Grants to School Districts
 
Grant program is designed to award committed recipients with Vantage endowments of MY Access! Instructional writing service to school districts throughout the U.S.
 
Ewing, N.J.—August 4, 2009Vantage Learning, a pioneer in providing educational software tools for K -12 school districts, today announced the launch of the Vantage Learning Keystone Partner Program an undertaking of the Vantage Learning Education Initiative. Phase one of this program will provide more than $650,000 in grants, endowments, and subsidies to districts throughout the country for much needed MY Access! installation and professional development. Given the current economy and budget restrictions many districts are experiencing, the program offers hope in addressing student writing proficiency at a time when scarce dollars have severely impacted and hampered purchasing power even for proven and effective classroom technologies.
“As a company, Vantage Learning recognizes the importance of integrating technology into classroom curricula. At the same time, we also understand the substantial difficulties and obstacles faced by schools to secure approved funding for successful teaching and learning tools,” says Robert Patrylak, President of Vantage Learning. “We are happy and committed to give back to these 10 districts, and others that wish to apply, to further help each reap the benefits that MY Access! technology brings to the classroom in boosting writing proficiency and proven results on state tests.”
            The program will kick off by distributing funding to 10 school districts throughout the nation including: Martin County School District, Fla.; Denver Public Schools, Colo.; Adams 12 Five-Star Schools, Colo.; Las Vegas Diocese, Nev.; Cascade Middle School, Ore.; Apopka High School, Fla; Volusia County School District, Fla; Goshen School District, NY; Southeastern Regional Vocational Technical School District, Mass; and Bossier Parrish, La.  Martin County will be the first district to receive nearly $100,000 in funding this August.
            MY Access! is an online writing program and instructional teaching tool that rapidly improves student writing proficiency by motivating students to write more frequently and continually revise their work. With MY Access! students write essays, submit them via the Internet, and receive immediate and meaningful holistic and trait scores and individualized prescriptive feedback. Teachers can access student writing portfolios online to monitor progress, provide additional feedback, and tailor instruction to address the specific needs of their students. MY Access! provides teachers with a solution that encourages students to write, and gives teachers more time to plan and deliver instruction that is both data driven and differentiated.
            “We are overwhelmed by the generosity of Vantage Learning, and are thrilled to use this funding to further incorporate MY Access! into our classrooms,” says Pat Schmoyer, Principal of South Fork High School, of Martin County School District. “I’ve seen students’ writing proficiency scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test writing assessment dramatically increase after incorporating MY Access! into the classroom, making our district No. 1 in Florida on the writing portion of the exam. “With MY Access!, our students are well on their way to becoming proficient and responsible writers and critical thinkers!”
The Vantage Learning Keystone Partner Program was created to directly aid districts in funding educational technology that is proven to improve students’ writing. Vantage plans to begin distributing awards by mid-August, in order for districts to have access to the funds for the upcoming 2009-2010 school year, and will continue to consider and provide funding as additional districts apply. The Keystone Partner Program seeks to identify and benefit school districts that are committed to literacy, using writing as a means to drive student achievement across the learning curriculum using MY Access! and other Vantage Learning teaching tools and technologies to invigorate assessment solutions.
Districts throughout the United States are encouraged to apply. Vantage Learning Education Initiative awards are competitive and offered on an as-available basis. The company will carefully consider meritorious applications received. Vantage Learning retains sole discretion with respect to application review, selection criteria, and subsequent award, if any. For more information on this program or to apply, kindly contact Fred Bentsen at FBentsen@Vantage.com or 267-756-1107.

Hall Research Adds IP Control to its All-in-One A/V System








Tustin, California – August 4, 2009

Hall Research announces today the release of the model VSA-31-IP, an add-on module for the Switch-Cat™ A/V Systems (Hall Research Model VSA-31 and VSA-31-SP). The new IP module allows monitoring and controlling of Switch-Cat™ installations via Internet Protocol. The Switch-Cat™ is the all-in-one A/V system that is currently installed in hundreds of classrooms and conference rooms worldwide.

The VSA-31-IP is simply inserted in the RS-232 control signal path from the A/V system to the display (LCD or Projector). It is port-powered (via the VSA-31 Receiver), therefore no additional power supplies are required. The package contains two elements: The IP Module and the GUI Software. The IP Module connects to the local network through a standard network cable. The GUI Software is a standalone software program that can be installed onto any computer on the local network that allows asset management, monitoring and control of multiple installations. The user can view and control various settings on all installed devices such as:

  • Display Device Properties – the software stores descriptive fields about each display device (LCD or projector) such as its make and model and serial number.
  • Device Location – can organize devices into location hierarchy, such as "Building" and "Room Number."
  • Device Status – polls devices for the current power state and projector lamp hours.
  • Alarm – sends notification e-mail to the administrator for events such as a device disconnection (theft prevention), or when a particular projector’s lamp hours has reached certain threshold.
  • Broadcast events – sends out events to multiple devices at one time such as "Turn all on," or "Turn all off."
  • Scheduling – has the ability to schedule events to turn all devices on or off, or to send out a specific pre-set command.
  • Control of the user interface: The GUI gives the remote user virtual access to all aspects of the A/V switching system such as: video source selection for display, volume level adjustment, and more.


"The VSA-31-IP is a great option for adding functionality to the Switch-Cat™ system. It eases the burden of system management by allowing remote administration from anywhere on the network. Features like remote management, e-mail alarms and distributed device control would be virtually impossible to implement without network connectivity,” said Justin Ireland, Product Manager for Hall Research. "The VSA-31-IP is a step that Hall Research has taken towards more sophisticated products with advanced feature sets and greater manageability," he continued. Useful applications for the VSA-31-IP are facilities where multiple units of the VSA-31 are presently in place, and installations that require remote device administration capabilities.

The VSA-31-IP has a retail price of $395.00 and is available to purchase immediately through Hall Research’s Sales Department by calling (800) 959-6439, or through any authorized dealer.

STUDY REVEALS UNIVERSITIES LACK COMPREHENSIVE PLANS FOR MASS-CASUALTY EMERGENCIES

ALBUQUERQUE – Plans are in place for basic emergencies on university campuses, but key components are lacking when it comes to planning for mass-casualty events, according to a study published by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists. The study was published in the July/August issue of Radiologic Technology, ASRT’s peer-reviewed scientific journal.

 
Study author Tammy Curtis, M.S.R.S., R.T.(R)(CT), an assistant professor of radiologic sciences at Northwestern State University in Shreveport, La., reviewed the emergency plans of 28 randomly selected institutions with accredited radiologic science programs.
 
Research findings confirmed that most of the institutions are prepared for basic emergencies, including policies for bad weather, hazardous material spills, fire safety and bomb threats. However, of the 28 institution plans that were reviewed, only five had policies addressing school shootings or mass-casualty events. This included a lack of policies and procedures for suspicious activity or people, firearms, lockdowns, evacuations, hostages, biological agents, post-crisis counseling, crisis management teams and terrorist activities.
 
Emergency plans, retrieved through each university’s main Web site, were reviewed to determine whether they included key emergency preparedness components. The key components fall within four phases of emergency management, as outlined by the U.S. Department of Education’s Emergency Response and Crisis Management Technical Assistance Center:
 
1.     Preparation ¾ Helping schools get ready to respond quickly and effectively for emergencies. This is accomplished through diagnosing weaknesses in current crisis plans and revising them to counteract the weaknesses; building relationships with community partners; defining roles for levels of authorities; providing training programs for employees and first responders; mapping facility floor plans and utility cutoffs; acquiring proper equipment; creating an evacuation plan; and developing lockdown procedures.
2.     Prevention ¾ Actions taken by schools to decrease the chances of emergencies occurring. These actions include assessing the emotional well-being of employees and students; physical and environmental hazards; campus culture and climate; and the safety and security of the environment. Another component is mitigation, or acting before disaster strikes, to permanently prevent the occurrence of a disaster or reduce its effects.
The goal of mitigation is to lessen injuries, deaths, risks, damages, legal liability and           economic losses that could result from an emergency.
3.     Response ¾These activities take place immediately following the emergency and include taking actions toward recovery such as assigning responsibilities, arranging resources, documenting all activities, conducting debriefing meetings and activating an incident command system.
4.     Recovery ¾ The study states the goal of this phase “is to restore the institution’s operations, including the promotion of emotional healing for all parties affected by the crisis; restoring buildings, daily operations, key information systems, communication channels and class sessions; and initiating financial protocols.”
 
According to the study, “planning and organization are imperative for schools to cope with unique problems and emergency situations that may arise … The literature review and description of findings from the online search indicate that radiologic science educators and educators of all disciplines should become familiar with their university’s existing emergency preparedness plan. This includes knowing if the key components address measures for preventing and responding to crisis events such as school shootings.” The study also suggests that “radiologic science educators should educate their students on how to respond to emergency situations to save their lives and the lives of others.”
 
In addition, collegiate programs should have a good working relationship with their local homeland security and disaster response teams.
 
“The first step,” said Curtis, “is to evaluate their existing emergency preparedness plan for what is in place and what is missing. The second step is to address what is missing from the plan.”
 
Radiologic Technology is printed bimonthly and also is available online at www.radiologictechnology.org. ASRT members have free access to the online version, and nonmembers may access articles for a small fee.
 
About ASRT
The ASRT, based in Albuquerque, N.M., represents more than 131,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy. The Society is the largest radiologic science association in the world. Its mission is to provide radiologic technologists with the knowledge, resources and support they need to improve patient care.
