High School Students to Receive Crash Course in Entrepreneurship During Ready Set Launch! Youth Week at the GateWay Community College CEI


Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 14, 2013

Students from several local high schools will have the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship as a viable career option during the inaugural Ready Set Launch youth week, June 17-21, hosted by the Center for Entrepreneurial Innovation at GateWay Community College, with the help of international sponsorships and partners.

From conception to pitch, the students will form groups and take a hands-on approach to developing a business, including filming commercials, recording radio spots, and writing abbreviated business plans. They will subsequently present in front of family and friends as well as a panel of judges who will award prizes to the team with the best overall pitch.

Our Ready Set Launch! program will teach valuable business, teamwork and critical thinking skills, said CEI executive director Jeff Saville. But the best part of the week is when the students present all their incredible work on Friday in front of each other and their proud family members.

As part of the experience, the students will tour DPR Construction and hear from some incredible guest presenters from the entrepreneurial community, including Phoenix Business Journal 40 under 40 honorees Jenny Poon of CO+Hoots and Chris Petroff of Seed Spot. Also scheduled to speak is CEI client Clarizza Watson of SiO2 Nanotech LLC and her husband, Gabe Watson, former Arizona Cardinals defensive lineman who played in Super Bowl XLIII.

This week would not be possible without the support of our clients and the local entrepreneurs who are devoting their time to share their experiences with these students, Saville said. And we cannot overlook those who have pledged additional financial and lunch sponsorships as well.

Spotlight, an innovative project management software company, as well as the 157 Group, an organization dedicated to improving further education programs in England, each made financial contributions to the program. CEI client Phillip Felice of Smart Phocus also donated iPhone accessory kits as prizes for the winning team. Each cited the continuing education of young people, particularly in the business and entrepreneurial disciplines, as primary reasons for their support.

In addition, Postino, DPR Construction, Maizies Caf

This is the Night Beach, aka the idea that in a post-nanotech age, where man-made biology has gotten free into the biosphere and intermingled with the natural organisms, that there could be a ‘quiet’ time, such as at night. ‘Quiet’ meaning that many artifical organisms and nanotech-substances which might be normally activated (by design) through the reception of a spectrum of light or radio waves, could fall dormant when the sun sets, thus leaving the original pre-nanotech biology to go about its’ nocturnal business.
The song "Night Beach" on Community Library 12" from 2006 was written within the body of Supernature tracks, and thus this part of the Supernature album cover is connected to that non-album track.

SPI Corp Completes Testing On Nano Tech Multi Sensor Thermal PTZ Imaging Platform.


Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) May 08, 2012

SPI Corp is a leading provider of multi sensor thermal PTZ solutions to military, law enforcement and civilian customers for over a decade. They are among the early pioneers of remote controlled thermal PTZ Camera systems for vehicle and stationary mount applications. The M1-D Nano Tech multi sensor thermal PTZ system is the natural evolution of their pan tilt product line offering their customers a smaller, lighter and more powerful platform.

We are really excited about the new M1-D Nano Tech thermal PTZ system stated Randall Kolchins, Director SPI CORP. The Nano Tech affords the smallest package on the market that combines visual, thermal and laser sensor technologies and now that field testing is complete we are anxious to release this breakthrough product into the marketplace. Typical pan tilt zoom thermal systems available to consumers today are large complicated devices that can have price tags up to $ 100,000+. These systems are typically only within reach of agencies with very large budgets. The large systems also weigh 40lbs to 150lbs or more requiring extensive mounting provisions. These types of systems are critical for law enforcement and military users that need a way to see outside their vehicles and search areas in daylight or total darkness. The M1-D Nano Tech is said to solve most of these problems by using the nano technology model that tries to make everything smaller, stronger and ultimately less expensive.

This system is truly amazing explains Darren Desoto, Lead Technician SPI CORP. The size of this thing really blows my mind. We pack a thermal sensor, CCTV camera and laser designator into an envelope the size of older thermal sensors alone! Mr. Desoto went on to say We put these things through the wringer out here in the desert and on the lake to fully punish them and test their reliability. So far this unit has stood up to everything we can throw at it.

The company aims to target this system to military and law enforcement professionals as well as to Hog Hunters in hard hit areas like North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas. Some states have bans on using night vision scopes to shoot hogs but there is no ban on using thermal imaging on your vehicle to spot predators.

I cant wait until we release this unit exclaimed Jim Santana, Sales Manager SPI CORP. I got tons of customers that are chomping at the bit to get this little guy on their roof. There really is nothing like this out there and it will save lives I know it. The small size of the M1-D Nano Tech thermal PTZ system seems to be a critical factor in its success. Following testing SPI CORP expects to go into full rate production within 30 days.

SPI Corp has been in the business of manufacturing and distributing Thermal Imaging Solutions for well over a decade. Existing products include PTZ thermal imagers, thermal rifle scopes and infrared cameras.
