The Clement Palo Alto, Opened in March 2016

Hotel Offers A 6-Star Experience in the Heart of Silicon Valley with Unparalleled Personal Service in All-Inclusive Luxury

Palo Alto, CA, May 26, 2016- The Clement Palo Alto opened its doors March 2016. It is one of the most innovative, personalized and unique luxury hotels in the country.

With 23 spacious and richly appointed one-bedroom suites, The Clement Palo Alto sets a new standard for personalized luxury accommodations in a contemporary residential-style atmosphere.

While unparalleled service is key to any great luxury hotel, The Clement Palo Alto takes its impeccable service to another level with an all-inclusive concept, including personalized concierge services, breakfast, lunch and dinner in an on-premise location of the guest's choice. All wine, beer and cocktails, in-room mini-refrigerator (stocked with the guest's favorites), and fully-stocked Guest Pantry available around the clock, are just a few of the amenities included in this all-inclusive experience.

In fact, The Clement Palo Alto is more than all-inclusive, it is all-exclusive, catering exclusively to the guest's personal tastes and desires.

No detail has been overlooked at The Clement Hotel, from the guest's favorite sparkling water and snacks in the mini-fridge to the plush Stearns & Foster European pillow top California King beds with luxurious Frette bed linens.

"The inspiration for this hotel came about when my wife and I took a getaway trip to the island of Bali," says Clement Chen III, president of Pacific Hotel Management, LLC, creators of The Clement Hotel, Palo Alto. "We stayed at a small hotel there that left a deep impression on us. Everybody at the hotel - even the gardening staff -knew our names, and everyone there was so warm and personable. And, since all of the staff knew who we were, we never had to sign a check for anything. We didn't feel like we were customers at a hotel - we were able to just relax and enjoy our stay, like being at home, only better!"

That memorable hotel stay convinced Mr. Chen that the same experience would be well-received in the U.S., and that has been the guiding vision for The Clement Hotel.

"I want each guest to feel like a guest, not a customer," says Chen. "I loved the feeling of not having to sign a check or worry about tipping every time I turned around. That is why we have all-inclusive pricing. We want our guests to feel like they are house guests at a great residence with a terrific service staff."

The moment guests arrive at the front door, they will step into an oasis of sophistication, service and comfort. Instead of the typical lobby and registration desk of most hotels, guests at The Clement Palo Alto will be greeted by their own Personal Concierge.

This Personal Concierge will have an iPad with all the pertinent information about the guests, including their wants and needs, and take them directly to their rooms. The Personal Concierge will take care of the guests for the duration of their stay and take care of all their personal needs.

During their stay, guests can have breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared in The Kitchen, the hotel's open kitchen, with an executive chef presiding over the menu tailored to their tastes and requirements. Guests can dine in The Dining Room, the outdoor Dining Terrace, the privacy of their guest suite, or in a private cabana on the private roof-top pool deck overlooking the picturesque Stanford University campus.

Guests also have access to the beautifully appointed communal guest kitchen, which is similar to a high-end residential kitchen, with access to a fully stocked guest pantry that is available around the clock.

The 650-square-foot, one-bedroom suites offer modern and sophisticated comfort reflecting the Northern California lifestyle. Each suite provides an intuitive layout with an array of carefully curated amenities to enhance the guest's stay. State-of-the-art technology is combined with comfort of the highest quality, such as sumptuous Frette linens, 65-inch Samsung Smart TVs, Nespresso Vertuoline coffee machines, and fully stocked in-room refrigerators.

Spacious stone-lined bathrooms include a soaking tub and a separate glass-enclosed shower, lighted makeup mirrors at a dry vanity area, and a TV behind the mirrors, just a few of the features that will delight their senses.

Other luxurious touches include remote-controlled motorized draperies, a desk fully stocked with office supplies and a connectivity panel for Internet and charging, robe options and slippers of the guest's choice in the spacious closets.

The common areas of the hotel feature the elegant Living Room, which is accented with a stone fireplace and is the perfect location to relax with a favorite cocktail or glass of wine. Or they can enjoy the firepit on the outdoor Dining Terrace or at the roof-top deck with a swimming pool, whirlpool and private cabanas.

In addition, there is a fully equipped exercise room on the second floor of the hotel available to guests 24 hours.

The interior design of The Clement Palo Alto was created by Stanford Hughes of the renowned, award-winning San Francisco hotel design firm Brayton Hughes Design Studios.

Hughes says his design takes its inspiration from the hotel's architecture, which he describes as "an abstraction of traditional Manor House."

"The decor is contemporary, elegant and comfortable. It offers a warm, alluring ambiance in an intimate residential scale," says Hughes, whose firm's award-winning designs include Four Seasons Hotel Chicago and The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe. "The interior design offers a perfect blend of contemporary and classic elements. The palette of warm neutral colors and natural materials creates a soothing, cozy and relaxing environment. It is elegant and minimal, yet highly livable.
The Clement Palo Alto is more than a hotel, it is a home away from home."

The Clement Palo Alto's all-inclusive services and amenities include:
• All-inclusive breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks
• All-inclusive wine, beer and cocktails (charges apply for premium brands)
• All-inclusive in-room dining
• All-inclusive mini-bar

• All-inclusive Business Center
• All-inclusive valet parking
• All-inclusive twice-daily housekeeping services

With her stirring, soulful vocals, Angie discusses a sparking infatuation with a prospective lover. Bruyere’s rasp and rawness is what shines through this upbeat, edgy Americana single.

In her youth, Angie Bruyere began songwriting when she started creating music out of her poetry. Known as a dynamic performer, Angie has played in some of Southern California’s premier venues such as Pappy and Harriet’s, Whisky a Go Go, The Troubadour, The Roxy and The Mint. In addition, Bruyere has toured across the United States, through Italy and the rest of Europe. Angie looks forward to continue her touring in support of her Blood Like Wine EP.

The six-song release, Blood Like Wine, will be followed by an additional EP, which includes the second half of Angie’s Nashville recordings and will be released later this year.

In 2014, Angie released West of the Night, which was followed by a Fender sponsorship that featured Angie as Fender’s artist of the month. Along with, two fender sessions of her “Goodbyes” and “Mason Jar” singles.

“Bruyere’s sultry voice stood out, as she possesses a distinctive purr that is both sweet and dangerous at the same time.”-Fender

Gartner Selects Netswitch as Representative of New Breed of Cyber-Security Managed Detection and Response Vendors

The Gartner Group has just issued a new market guide for Cyber-Security services describing what it is calling “Managed Detection and Response” and naming Netswitch Technology as a market representative provider in the space.

South San Francisco, CA, May 17, 2016 - The Gartner Group has just issued a new market guide for Cyber-Security services describing what it is calling “Managed Detection and Response” and naming Netswitch Technology as a market representative provider in the space.

The report, targeted to security leaders and available to Gartner subscribers was authored by senior Gartner security analysts, Toby Bussa, Craig Lawson and Kelly M. Kavanagh, identifies new service providers that are emerging to support organizations seeking to improve their threat detection and incident response capabilities.

“We are delighted that Gartner has included us in this category of market leaders along with Cisco, Raytheon and FireEye”, says Steve King, COO and Chief Security Officer of Netswitch. “Our unique SaaS offering is based on our Securli Advanced Threat Protection platform and our SecurliXF extended threat intelligence service. This service correlates disparate data feeds from a variety of sources both public and proprietary to provide predictive threat intelligence along with our monitoring, incident response and remediation capabilities. The result is actionable threat intelligence delivered on a 24x7 clock.”

As Marc van Zadelhoff, the head of IBM Security recently pointed out, “Even if the industry was able to fill the estimated 1.5 million open cyber security jobs by 2020, we’d still have a skills crisis in security.” Managed Detection and Response providers fill that critical security skills gap by providing expert detection and remediation service to deal with today’s increasingly complex threats. Private businesses and public companies will find it challenging to deal with these threats alone.

Netswitch’s business model allows them to manage the monitoring tools selected by the customer and through their three partner SOCs - two in the U.S. and one in Hong Kong - provide 24/7 monitoring, incident investigation, alerting and remediation services with a 15-minute response SLA. Netswitch is predominantly used by midsize organizations today, but is also targeting enterprises with its MDR service. The service is priced on the number of log sources and the security monitoring tools selected from the Netswitch technology portfolio.

Gartner points out that by 2020, 15% of midsize and enterprise organizations will be using services like MDR, up from less than 1% today. And, by 2020, 50% of worldwide MSSPs will offer MDR-type services.

Gartner recommends that IT security leaders should
1) Use MDR services to augment existing security monitoring capabilities to address gaps in advanced threat detection and incident response before investing in more security monitoring tools (e.g., security information and event management [SIEM], network, and host-threat detection), and associated staff and expertise.
2) Consider managed security service providers (MSSPs) that offer MDR-like services when device management and compliance use cases are required.
3) Look for MDR providers who can incorporate your existing security controls in the scope of their services to improve context and coverage.

Security leaders should use this research to understand the MDR services market and it’s fit for their security monitoring and incident response requirements.

Netswitch is a global cyber-security solutions provider, serving businesses of all sizes through its award-winning Managed Detection and Response platform.

The SECURLI® Integrated Security Technologies are in use at over 3,000 client sites around the world providing managed intrusion detection and prevention, advanced behavioral analytics, preemptive breach detection, monitored and managed web firewalls and gateways, security information and event management, managed incident response and remediation and complete audit-ready regulatory compliance.

Internationally renowned a cappella ensemble and activists, SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK, whose mission is empowerment, education and entertainment have announced they will proceed with their scheduled engagements in Goldsboro at the Paramount Theatre, May 13th, and High Point Theatre, May 14th, in North Carolina.

New York, NY, May 14, 2016 - Internationally renowned a cappella ensemble and activists, SWEET HONEY IN THE ROCK, whose mission is empowerment, education and entertainment have announced they will proceed with their scheduled engagements in Goldsboro at the Paramount Theatre, May 13th, and High Point Theatre, May 14th, in North Carolina. They will protest in song to express their opposition to the passage of the HB2 anti-transgender (so-called "bathroom law") that has embroiled North Carolina in a national controversy.

In their official announcement, the group stated, "Sweet Honey in the Rock has always stood for justice, freedom, dignity, and basic human rights for all people, regardless of race, religion, age, ability, economic status, political affiliation, national origin, gender identity, or sexual orientation, and our diverse audiences reflect these principles. In 2010, we joined many other artists in the boycott against the unjust policy in Arizona (SB 1070) By declining to perform, however, we were constantly reminded by those in the struggle that they needed our voices for support. "

"Although we do not endorse the recent passing of the unjust HB2 anti-transgender law in North Carolina, we will honor our prior commitments (Goldsboro, May 13; High Point, May 14) to offer music which will uplift and inspire all those who believe it is imperative to stand together against injustice. We who believe in freedom cannot rest."

Para Systems Inc. Unveiled Two New Fixed Voltage Output Options to the ParaZapper™ MY-3 Model

The purchaser can choose from 9.8 volts and longer battery life or 10.5 volts.

Pinson, AL, May 11, 2016 - Para Systems Inc. unveiled two new fixed voltage output options for the ParaZapper™ MY-3 model. The purchaser can choose from 9.8 volts and longer battery life or 10.5 volts.'Para Systems Inc. recently unveiled a new member to its family of zappers, the ParaZapper™ MY-3 model which has a total of over 273 frequencies in 35 mode selections ( 25 modes ) with better accuracy.

David Etheredge, President Para Systems Inc., described the new ParaZapper™ MY-3 model upgrades as a real boost to the best zapper available, which delivers leading performance and quality, backed by Current Controlled (CC) technology and now a higher constant voltage output of either 9.8 volts to 10.5 volts for the life of the battery.

The constant voltage options are a significant addition to the standard output that is about .35 to .4 volts less than the actual battery voltage.

"People today expect the best experience from their technology- they are counting on technology to kill parasites and microbes wherever they are," said David Etheredge. "The new ParaZapper™ MY-3 model gives customers the good experience they expect from the best zappers, with performance that allows them zap microbes with more accurate consistency, when they want, in a model they will be proud to own."

The advantage that is seen from these higher voltages is an increased ability to destroy many microbes such as bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and others, as well as extending the life of the battery.

The MY-3 model is designed with accurate frequencies utilizing many of Royal Raymond Rife's frequencies and technology that far exceeds the old Hulda Clark and Bob Beck zappers. The accurate frequencies make the micro-controller zappers such as this one to produce better results.

These models also employ the constant current or current controlled output technology which is a better, safer output that exceeds Dr. Clark's recommendations. Other cutting edge features found in the Hulda Clark ParaZapper that are not present in other devices on the market include:

Good connection indicators: in this product, the status indicator serves as s good connection indicator with the changing colors without reducing that output.

Larger contacts: this provides a greater amount of electrical signal to produce greater effectiveness than would be achieved with smaller contacts.

Multiple frequencies: "We introduced multiple frequency zappers because they can reach and destroy more organisms, and the MY-3 model is the latest in the market with amazing capabilities in killing microbes" said David.

The best results usually come from using a 4 point contact system with one negative contact and 3 positive contacts, but in some cases, even an additional contact point can have benefits. In some cases, using the 4 point configuration with paddles and pads can almost double effectiveness and satisfaction. The 5th contact point ( also positive ) can be used to provide protection to other areas that may be of concern.

Para Systems Inc., the maker of the positive offset zapping products as specified by Dr. Clark such as the ParaZapper™ 6-Pack, ParaZapper™ CC2, ParaZapper™ UZI-3, and the new ParaZapper™ MY-3 model. For more information on pricing and delivery, visit Hulda Clark Zapper Co at There is also a link to a customer produced video that explains the frequencies and usage of the ParaZapper™ MY-3 on the site.

San Juan Bautista Design Firm Creates New Logo, Tagline for City of San Juan Bautista

Schipper Design, an international marketing and design firm located in San Juan Bautista, California, has created a new logo and branding tagline for the city.

San Juan Bautista, CA, May 11, 2016Schipper Design, an international marketing and design firm located in San Juan Bautista, California, has created a new logo and branding tagline for the city.

San Juan Bautista’s new logo and tagline honors its heritage and celebrates its future as an historic California city.

The new logo takes its cue from elements present in the architecture of Third Street as well as illustrations from the interior of the historic San Juan Bautista Mission, balancing historic tradition and heritage with 21st century imagination.

The process started in November 2015, when the San Juan Bautista Committee engaged Schipper Design to create a brand identity for the city, including a new logo and brand focus.

The first phase of the process began with a public survey, which resulted in 137 responses from residents and visitors alike. The results of the survey were tabulated and quotes were referenced in developing the new messaging for the city.

One typical response was: “An authentic and historic town, a hidden treasure, far from the maddening crowd, frozen in time, takes you back to the good old days where the pace is slower yet the sensory reward is richer.”

The new logo represents the city’s main attraction: the Old Mission San Juan Bautista. The arched shape, which creates a frame for the typography, was inspired by a painted wall pattern from the interior of the Mission.

The illustrated typography is reminiscent of hand-painted signs from the past, while the bold clean strokes speak to the future with clarity and unflinching confidence.

These elements are a nod to both the historical context of San Juan Bautista and the independent residents, merchants, businesses and civic leaders who work to maintain the unique culture of San Juan Bautista.

Finished in a crisp turquoise color, the color of the mission doors, the logo is ready for use as the city embarks on a new effort to reach potential new business and tourism.

Incorporated in 1869, and known as "The City of History,” San Juan Bautista is a unique village, alive with early California history and home to one of the most authentic, picturesque and pristine missions along the California mission trail.

Old Mission San Juan Bautista was founded in 1797 by Father Fermin de Lausen, successor to Junipero Serra, and is the 15th of the 21 California Missions.

A deep commitment to preservation has endowed the city with historic authenticity, including a nationally registered historic district, a main street lined with buildings straight out of the old west and original adobes dating back two centuries.

By embracing multicultural performing arts and artists, festivals and street fairs the community celebrates entertainment year-round. Surrounded on all sides by untouched hillsides, organic fields and natural habitats, the call to nature and the rustic outdoors complements every experience.

The city's new marketing tagline, “Lift Your Spirit,” is intended to reflect the sentiments of both residents and visitors. There is a deep consensus on how nice it feels to visit a place where life slows down and people can enjoy a relaxed day of browsing in small shops and dining outdoors.

About Schipper Design
Founded in 2003, Schipper Design is a marketing and design agency located in the quaint Central California town of San Juan Bautista. With a highly skilled team of designers and creatives, Schipper Design emphasizes the quality of design and terrific customer service — the perfect combination.
