“Google is proud to partner with WiCyS and SANS to provide scholarships to WiCyS community members for premier security trainings. Google believes one of the ways we help grow representative talent pools is to deepen our partnerships with organizations such as WiCyS that serve underrepresented communities. By supporting efforts to provide greater access to free learning, Google is committed to bringing more diversity and inclusivity to the security community,” said Sarah Morales, Google Outreach Program Manager for Security.
This new opportunity will offer 100 WiCyS members the chance to launch and/or advance their careers in cybersecurity within the next 1.5 years through a skills development training program. Even for those who have no previous cybersecurity experience, they will have the opportunity to progress through four stages.
First, participants will engage in CyberStart Game, where they will be introduced to topics such as Linux, web attacks, programming and forensics. They will build technical skills and creative thinking. Stage 2 will see technical aptitude for cybersecurity learning and fundamental skills tested in the SANS CyberTalent Assessment. In Stage 3, the top 12 performers will embark in online interactive hands-on learning with 48 modules of foundational material. After this stage, participants will receive a certificate of completion from SANS. Throughout the final stage, students will continue advanced SANS training courses along with career mentorship and soft skills guidance with an opportunity to take the Global Information Assurance Certification (GIAC) exam. Once all stages are complete, participants will be ready for careers in cybersecurity.
“Google and WiCyS are leading the way in providing opportunities for underrepresented groups to discover their cybersecurity talent. With their support, 100 women will learn and practice hands-on cybersecurity skills in a fun, safe online environment with top performers before taking fundamental training and earning industry certifications,” said Alan Paller, founder of SANS Institute. “This program is an outstanding example of innovative organizations creating new opportunities to increase diversity in cybersecurity and bringing new talent into the field.”
WiCyS is a national nonprofit dedicated to bringing women together in cybersecurity from academia, research and industry to share knowledge, experience, networking and mentoring. This is yet another opportunity that is helping advance women in the male-dominated field of cybersecurity.
“This initiative was very important for WiCyS to launch and facilitate,” said Lynn Dohm, executive director of WiCyS. “It opens doors for positive professional development experiences to our community during these tiring COVID-19 pandemic times.”

At Allerio we have chosen to do things differently. At Allerio we solved an important problem with connectivity for telemedicine and remote communications. We knew it had to be portable, it had to be reliable, it had to be secure, it had to be simple, and that it just has to work.

Allerio is a portable connectivity platform that optimizes cellular connectivity, enabling first responders in the field to reliably record, share, and transmit critical patient and other broadband data for telemedicine at the point of care and in transit.
Allerio CEO TJ Kennedy said, “At Allerio we are passionate about empowering first responders with life-saving technology. When creating Allerio, we looked at what was available for telemedicine at the patient’s location and found that more was needed, so we went to work to solve that problem. We came up with something completely different that optimizes coverage of three nationwide carrier LTE networks in one device that is lightweight, portable and is extremely easy to operate.”
Allerio Corporate Development Officer Jason Karp added, “The Allerio solution is a true step forward in connectivity options, which has been validated by public safety in the field, facilitating telemedicine for faster patient interventions and enabling true community paramedicine.”

Utility Concierge®, the original concierge service for connecting home services, is thrilled to announce a collaboration with Lone Wolf Technologies ("Lone Wolf"). Utility Concierge will be featured in the Lone Wolf Marketplace, a library of curated digital tools for real estate agents and brokerages to plug and play into their national transaction management member benefit, zipForm® Plus, or their local/state member benefit, TransactionDesk. Marketplace puts the industry's most innovative tools like the Utility Concierge service, in the hands of real estate agents and brokerages to provide the first end-to-end transaction experience of its kind.
"Marketplace is where real estate professionals can go to find everything they need for their real estate experience," said Jason Cheverton, VP of Strategic Channels at Lone Wolf. "At Lone Wolf, we often compare Marketplace to Netflix. Netflix brought an entirely new way for people to access multiple forms of entertainment that were previously only available in separate locations. Like Netflix, Marketplace brings all of these various real estate tools together, whether they're Lone Wolf solutions or not, and makes it possible for agents and brokerages to find and use them all in a single place—their transaction management solution. And the best part? Unlike Netflix, every agent in the country has a free login to Marketplace through their national transaction member benefit and can start using these tools in their transactions today."
Marketplace makes it easier than ever for real estate professionals to add Utility Concierge to their process. With just a click, agents and brokers can add the built-in Utility Concierge integration to their transaction management solution.
“Lone Wolf Marketplace is an amazing platform and partner for Utility Concierge,” said Gabe Abshire, founder and CEO of Utility Concierge. “Just like we focus on making things easier for homebuyers, Lone Wolf is focused on making things easier for agents. We’re excited to make adding a personal concierge to every team on Marketplace simple and easy.”

Remcom announces superposition simulation and array optimization in the latest release of XFdtd® 3D EM Simulation Software, further expanding the software’s capabilities for high-frequency 5G device design and beam steering analysis.
Antenna arrays are essential for maximizing the performance of complex 5G-enabled devices, facilitating the use of beam steering, spatial diversity, and other techniques to improve throughput. Determining the numerous beam states for a new design can be tedious due to the hundreds or thousands of port phase combinations. XFdtd enables users to leverage the electromagnetic principle of superposition to reveal these combinations with a single simulation. By combining steady-state results from the simulation, XFdtd efficiently determines the port phases that maximize the far zone coverage in each direction.
Sam Seidel, XFdtd project manager, said, “Remcom continues to develop XFdtd to keep pace with the growing complexity of 5G design requirements and the advanced technologies that our customers are utilizing to meet them. Superposition and array optimization enable highly sophisticated array analysis and beam steering while removing slowdowns that impede the design workflow.”
For more information on the latest release of XFdtd, please visit Remcom’s website. XFdtd users without an active Remcom Professional Support contract can upgrade to the latest version by contacting sales.

Protecting your landline is a real necessity nowadays. According to the Federal Trade Commission’s (www.ftc.gov) published stats, there has been a 650% increase in consumer complaints in the last 6 years. In 2016, 8.4 million complaints were filed by consumers. This means that at least six per cent (6%) of the households in the US or 1 in 20 households are victims of some scam every year in the United States alone. This is why it is important to protect your phone line (at home or business) with a call blocking device. The Ultimate Call blocker (UBlocker) is a new product/service that contains several unique features among the other call blockers in the market:
Dual Blacklists - The UBlocker features 2 blacklists; a global blacklist and a user blacklist. The global blacklist is fully automated (e.g. calls from these numbers are automatically blocked without having to answer calls or press any buttons), and actively managed by HQTelecom (currently with 162,000 blocked numbers worldwide). The user’s Blacklist has an UNLIMITED capacity to block calls using phone numbers, names, or area codes via a user-friendly website. Another new feature is the WHITELIST MODE – When turned ON, it blocks all calls except those in your WHITELIST. The Whitelist-Mode feature can offer users complete privacy.
"We receive several requests daily from homeowners (mostly the elderly) seeking for a way to stop the annoying phone calls they receive constantly," says Alfredo Purrinos, former NASA scientist and creator of the UBlocker. "Some complain about getting robbed by scam artists impersonating government agencies and/or relatives in distress”, even though they registered their phone numbers with the government-sponsored “Do Not Call' list".
Illegal telemarketing operations and scam artists (which represent more than 90% of the calls people get) use automated dialling services (e.g.robocalls) to detect humans. These services use several phone numbers, including a common something referred as ‘neighborhood spoofing’ which consist in using the same area code and prefix of the numbers being called. This is why it’s important to have fought back with an intelligent and capable call blocking system that helps reduce the number of these calls. The key difference among the UBlocker and other call blockers in the market is the ability to help consumers in a proactive way. With the UBlocker, there is little or no need for detective work since most of the unsolicited calls will be blocked BEFORE the users answer the calls.
The Ultimate Call Blocker is manufactured in the US by Hi Q Telecom Inc. (https://www.hqtelecom.com/), and can also be available in online stores such as Amazon, and soon in eBay, Walmart, and NewEgg.The UBlocker requires the caller id service to be active on the phone line in order to work properly. It also uses the Internet to check the global blacklist in real-time and block numbers automatically.
About the Company:
Hi Q Telecom Inc. (HQTelecom.com) is a BBB A+ rated corporation specializing in telephone security and speciality products. Our main office is located in Miami Lakes, Florida. For more information about incoming call blocker devices or the company visit hqtelecom.com or contact us.
Chinese government has implemented policies to encourage companies to return to A-share market. With the fast growth of China’s economy, China concept stock’s privatization is increasing in 2018 after a number of companies including WuXi AppTec, Mindray and Cheetah mobile went private to China’s A-share market.
On November 11, China Customer Relations Centers, Inc. (CCRC) has announced plans to go private to A-share market in China.
CCRC’s announcement has led to more discussions by the capital market on privatization. Earlier this year, General Office of the State Council of China quoted China Securities Regulatory Commission’s (CSRC) policy during National People’s Congress and Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference that based on China’s law and market policy, they encouraged innovative companies to issue stocks in China, especially industries with new technologies and strategies such as biotech, cloud computing, AI and high-tech manufacturing.
On October 19, 2018, CSRC announced during its press conference that they have taken steps to help restructure work including making reasonable prices to protect small and medium sized investors; actively supporting quality overseas listed companies to list in A-share market and treating overseas companies the same as domestic entities as well as eliminating barriers to entry.
Sources say, call centers and third-party providers of e commerce customer services are industries supported by Chinese government. This industry is labor-intensive with light assets and high tech. CCRC has advantages in this field.
Based on Chinese internet research data, the total market size of Chinese domestic call center is about 630 billion RMB or 91.1 billion dollars in 2017. Because of the large industry size and the market stability, its annual growth rate is about 8.4% and after 2020, it is estimated to be 5.5%. Currently, call center system is transitioning from local servers to cloud servers. Cloud call centers has become the majority of this growing market.
Many industry experts consider CCRC an absolute pioneer in China’s call center and e commerce service third party provider industry, especially during this era that Chinese government encourages domestic listing of quality overseas companies. The business model will be easier to be recognized by investors in the A-share market than Nasdaq. It will also provide more growth in value in the future.
Broadcom intends to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission a proxy statement, accompanied by a BLUE proxy card, in connection with Qualcomm's 2018 Annual Meeting. Qualcomm has announced that its 2018 Annual Meeting will be held on March 6, 2018.
On November 6, 2017, Broadcom proposed to acquire all of the outstanding shares of Qualcomm for per share consideration of .00 in cash and stock, consisting of .00 in cash and .00 in Broadcom shares. Broadcom's offer represents a 28% premium over the closing price of Qualcomm's common stock on November 2, 2017, the last unaffected trading day prior to media speculation regarding a potential transaction, and a premium of 33% to Qualcomm's unaffected 30-day volume-weighted average price. The Broadcom proposal stands whether Qualcomm's pending acquisition of NXP Semiconductors N.V. ("NXP") is consummated on the currently disclosed terms of 0 per NXP share or is terminated.
Hock Tan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Broadcom, stated, "We have heard from many Qualcomm stockholders who have expressed their desire for Qualcomm to engage with us. We also continue to receive positive feedback from customers and, having had initial meetings with certain relevant antitrust authorities, remain confident that any regulatory requirements necessary to complete a combination will be met in a timely manner. Although we are taking this step, it remains our strong preference to engage in a constructive dialogue with Qualcomm. We have repeatedly attempted to engage with Qualcomm, and despite stockholder and customer support for the transaction, Qualcomm has ignored those opportunities. The nominations give Qualcomm stockholders an opportunity to voice their disappointment with Qualcomm's directors and their refusal to engage in discussions with us. In light of the significant value our proposal provides for Qualcomm stockholders, we believe Qualcomm stockholders would be better served by new independent, highly qualified nominees who are committed to maximizing value and acting in the best interests of Qualcomm stockholders."
