ST LOUIS, MO, USA, September 30, 2018 / — Increase customer engagement and return on advertising spend (ROAS) by learning best practices for better customer acquisition from a panel of industry leaders representing healthcare, media, research & AdTech.

St Louis – (September 30, 2018) – This week at the LeadsCon Connect to Convert conference in Boston, MA, Advocado Co-Founders Brian Handrigan & Jeff Linihan will be leading a Panel Discussion on Best Practices for Better Customer Acquisition. The session will cover how consumer engagement across channels (online, offline, phone, TV, etc.) and the growth of Micro-Moments create unique challenges and opportunities for Advertisers today.

The panel will discuss how customers receive (and respond) to messages across a variety of channels – from broadcast to digital to OTT and over phone. So, as advertisers, we are asking, How do we make cross channel engagement work together to create a unified customer experience and competitive advantage?

In the session, the panel will discuss:
* Micro-moments and the role they play in cross channel attribution and campaign activation
* How to assess broadcast media efficacy (and actions to take) through online performance measurement
* How to optimize online ads by connecting offline (call) conversions
* How to activate real-time digital campaigns based on video advertising events
* And… First hand experiences direct from the trenches.

"I am excited to be facilitating this panel on best practices as our industry goes through significant change,” said Jeff Linihan President, Advocado, Inc. “By bringing together different experience sets, and points of view, attendees will be able to learn from the assembled leaders from different industries, roles and having multiple points of view.”

On Mahatma Gandhi's Birthday, The World Gets a Gift is an app available in itunes free to download

WanderSafe app pairs with the Personal Safety Device via Bluetooth

WanderSafe comes in two colors Ivory and Onyx

On United Nations International Day of Non-Violence WanderSafe will launch a non-violent anti-trafficking device and free safety app for travelers

Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man.”

— Mahatma Gandhi

CANNES, FRANCE, September 29, 2018 / — In observance of the United Nations International Day of Non-Violence and celebration of Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday, WanderSafe is making the WanderSafe safety advisory smartphone application free to download on the iTunes app store. In an advent that Gandhi would have supported, JOZU’s founders believe that everyone should be able to live without fear or need to resort to violent means of protection such as guns or pepper spray.

WanderSafe™ hardware and software solution was designed by a former travel consultant and frequent solo female business traveler with more than 53 countries stamped in her passport. CEO and Founder Stephenie Rodriguez, in collaboration with a retired 25-year US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Safety Expert, Thomas Pecora designed the WanderSafe platform to solve the problem of lack of information about safe areas, to empower in a non-violent fashion, and to alert loved ones or employers if the WanderSafe user is in danger.

The hardware – a device has anti-rape/assault deterrent features built into its sleek, discreet design including high lumen quick-click flashlight, the second click disorienting strobe light, and a patent pending twist top 140db personal siren for attracting the attention or frightening a potential assailant. The smartphone application delivers real-time safety information that is geo-location based and time-centric. Verified users can annotate their journey and provide safety advice and warnings for other users. The application personalizes safety information and recommendations through a virtual Safety Concierge, JENI.

The WanderSafe™ Activate button on the device, when paired with the application, notifies pre-set contacts including friends, loved ones, employers or law enforcement of the user’s immediate longitude and latitude with a distress signal.

Frequent travelers such as Canadian Tracey Regimbal, a victim of a violent act when traveling to Italy for work, believes that WanderSafe is a comprehensive solution for fellow travelers and commuters. “Violence comes in many formats and it is an unfortunate reality we are often unprepared for. We have become desensitized to these micro assaults in our everyday life. When confronted by an aggressor you realize your helplessness and WanderSafe give me and others like me a sense of greater comfort, information and security when I am away from my home.”

“Most travelers don't know how to call the local police. I didn't. They may not be able to speak the language of a foreign country, have a network for support or know a way of escaping a potential assailant. WanderSafe will help empower women and those who feel vulnerable through information, environmental awareness, prevention, and mitigation in a non-violent way that Gandhi would approve of,” commented Ms Regimbal.

In uncertain times and with solo female travel on the rise, Founder and CEO Stephenie Rodriguez believes WanderSafe™ is a travel essential, whether for an international trip or a local commute. “The future of travel is most definitely female with more than 850 million women traveling this year. More than 68% of all study abroad students are female and in the US, more than 11 million woman over age thirty takes solo international trips more than five times per annum. WanderSafe™ isn’t just for women. We are empowering more people to travel further with greater peace of mind and unlike pepper spray, guns or tasers, the solution is completely non-violent and poses no threat to its users.”

Retired CIA Security expert and Advisor to WanderSafe, Thomas Pecora believes there are three important principles of personal safety that have been engineers into WanderSafe’s product: Information, Environmental Awareness, and Equipment. WanderSafe™ delivers on these with an integrated hybrid of hardware and software and in partnership with the world’s leading anti-trafficking organizations including Airline Ambassadors, CrimeStoppers International, and

The WanderSafe device will be available on Indigogo and USD $79.95 RRP. WanderSafe will be available for FREE to download from October 2, 2018, in iTunes and available for Android users via Google Play November 1, 2018.

Enterprise Exhibits from Judge Hayward’s Lee Courtroom Raises Police Concerns while Manager Admits Video Evidence Erased

One Lee Court exhibit among a number of others: Enterprise contract undated and questionable for police and others.  Agency fails to safeguard video but presents this rudimentary 'damage slip' as evidence of vehicle condition.

One Lee Court exhibit among a number of others: Enterprise contract undated and questionable for police and others. Agency fails to safeguard video but presents this rudimentary ‘damage slip’ as evidence of vehicle condition.

Unsigned and undated exhibits presented as evidence of vehicle condition at trial in Lee County generates concern for law enforcement and others. Video erased.

Small claims court is a special court where disputes are resolved quickly and inexpensively. The rules are simplified and the hearing is informal. Attorneys are generally not allowed.”

— Department of Consumer Affairs, State of California

BALTIMORE, MD, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 28, 2018 / — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communication industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today an example of a single courtroom exhibit — among a number of similar questionable exhibits — that was presented in a small claim hearing and without the benefit of counsel for the plaintiff as ‘proof of vehicle condition’ in Howe vs. Enterprise Holdings dba National Car Rental. The exhibit above is not dated and the signature is entirely illegible for everyone who has examined it, including police in Baltimore, Maryland.

Related: IBM Gets Desperate Plea from Enterprise Holdings Crime Victim and Survivor —

In addition to law enforcement, the courtroom exhibits have been scrutinized by others and have generated concern for all who have viewed. A source involved in the investigation has confirmed to the plaintiff, David Howe, that the case-number information from the Lee County Port Authority Police Investigation (Case No. 2016000055203) and the Lee Clerk of Court (Case No. 18-SC-001768) would be provided to a field agent from the FBI, Baltimore, following a review with law-enforcement professionals in Maryland.

The independent Lee County Port Authority Police investigation and its fact-finding report including sworn witness statements were repeatedly and aggressively objected to in the small claim hearing by counsel for Enterprise Holdings' National Car Rental; under no circumstance would Enterprise Holdings Counsel allow Judge Archie B. Hayward to read one word from the independent and unbiased police investigation. It begs the question for every single reasonable person everywhere: "Why would an ethical rental agency so aggressively and so persistently suppress a comprehensive, unbiased and independent, police investigation? Why did EHI Counsel insist that Judge Hayward be kept ignorant and uninformed to the findings of a sworn law enforcement officer from the same community the Judge presides concerning facts and evidence to reach the truth of a matter? What is Enterprise so eager to conceal and hide with its constant objections?"

FACT: The Federal Bureau of Investigation Washington Division had the very same question regarding the plaintiff's attempt to share the police report and sworn statements with Judge Hayward (FBI to Howe: Why Was the Lee Port Authority Police Report Not Shown to Judge in Enterprise National Car Rental Hearing? —

Plaintiff Howe is providing this perceived due-process outrage to the Florida Bar Association in a formal sworn complaint ( ; reference 19-4183) and asking for a review of what Howe argues may be serious statutory violations of a victim’s rights regarding Florida State Law as it relates to exceptions to so called ‘hearsay’ that was repeatedly asserted by defense counsel ( Moreover, Howe is making the argument that an ‘Officer of the Court’ has a sworn and ethical duty to ensure a non-attorney in a 'small claim' hearing is not disadvantaged by the chess-match-approach to complex civil rules of civil procedure that was brazenly on display in Judge Hayward’s courtroom as it relates to a plaintiff’s ability to present evidence to substantiate the facts otherwise aggressively suppressed by the defense counsel.

After all, what's the point of a 'small claim' courtroom if the merits, facts, and truth of a case are trumped by the unfair advantage of a cadre of lawyers against a pro-se plaintiff in a Lee Court where counsel for the plaintiff was unattainable because EHI intentionally forced the case into the wrong court of law through adhesion contracts — a contract that apparently wasn't signed by the plaintiff-victim as now evidenced by exhibits docketed in Lee County, Howe vs. Enterprise Holdings.

Related: 'Lost in the Fine Print' —

For the record, Plaintiff Howe filed a motion to transfer the case to an appropriate court of jurisdiction where due process could be obtained for this complex civil case but, as the court transcript now proves, Enterprise Counsel strongly objected to this effort for fairness, equity, and truth. Remarkably — and an urgent issue for review by the Florida Bar, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, and the Florida Supreme Court — concerning equity and due-process of law in a small claim hearing in the state of Florida, Judge Archie B. Hayward never read a single word from the independent police investigation docketed prior to trial and provided to defense Counsel.

And Judge Archie B. Hayward never heard or saw a single item of audio and video evidence from the same evidence previously docketed and sent electronically to Counsel — as directly instructed by EHI Counsel prior to trial except for the relentless money demand which also exposed proof of video surveillance viewed by EHI manager that was later taped-over.

To reiterate, the critical video evidence for which the state of Florida provides duties to safeguard and which would have unequivocally determined the pre-exising minor 'wear and tear' was, conveniently, erased after police and victim demanded the evidence. And the manager claimed he just didn't know better to copy, duplicate, and safeguard this incredibly significant evidence.

Nevertheless, the undeniable and mountain of facts from the investigation have been provided to media, law enforcement, and staff members of the United States Senate, as well as staff from the FTC and the CFPB.

Listen to the money demand with admission that video was viewed (company spoliated evidence despite the fact it was requested hours after the illicit money demand was made claiming they just didn’t know better):

Ortiz’s bosses claimed the theft was caught on camera, but she was never shown the video because her bosses told her the evidence had been destroyed.) —

Read the unedited and stunning court testimony below and recognize Enterprise Holdings’ management negligence and incompetence regarding common-sense safeguards of video evidence:

20· · · · Q· · Okay.· Were you aware that the Lee Port

21· ·Authority Police made multiple calls to Steven Carter?

22· · · · A· · No, sir.

23· · · · Q· · You were not aware of that?

24· · · · A· · No, sir.

25· · · · Q· · You were not aware that the Lee Port

·1· ·Authority Police wanted to see the video that you

·2· ·didn't bother to keep?

·3· · · · A· · No, sir.

·4· · · · Q· · Very interesting.· But I'm trying to

·5· ·understand, why do you keep these, but you don't keep

·6· ·video evidence that would clearly tell us whether this

·7· ·was preexisting or not?

·8· · · · · · ·You have this, but where's the video?· Did it

·9· ·just overwrite itself?· What happened to it?

10· · · · A· · Again, the video surveillance for the

11· ·customer safety, for car control measure, it over

12· ·records every 30 days.

13· · · · Q· · You told us, you said, I'm looking at the

14· ·footage and the damages are not preexisting.· Do you

15· ·know it's unreasonable that I did not get to see the

16· ·video, is that unreasonable to you?

17· · · · A· · Sir, I looked at the footage and there was no

18· ·damages.· I don't take into consideration what is

19· ·reasonable for you or not.· I review all the evidence

20· ·in front of me.

21· · · · Q· · Thank you for that.· Does Enterprise Holdings

22· ·have a formal policy when there's evidence of vehicle

23· ·condition and there's video evidence, do you have a

24· ·formal policy what you do with that video evidence that

25· ·would unequivocally tell the story, what happens to

·1· ·that, you just overwrite it?

·2· · · · A· · Sir, I'm not aware of that.

·3· · · · Q· · So you don't have any policy when someone

·4· ·says — when someone is being implicated for vehicle

·5· ·damage or there's a potential for preexisting damage,

·6· ·which is exactly the case here, you have video evidence

·7· ·that you look at but you don't maintain or know about a

·8· ·policy there?

·9· · · · A· · Let's focus here.· You're focusing on the

10· ·video.· I looked at your contract, okay, there was no

11· ·damages.· I looked at four previous contracts, there

12· ·was no damage.

13· · · · · · ·So, regardless, if there was no video, I

14· ·would still pursue you.

15· · · · Q· · Okay.· Fine.· We know there is video.· You

16· ·already acknowledged that you looked at it.· We all

17· ·understand that.· Why would you not keep that video?

18· ·Why don't you have a protocol in place, don't you think

19· ·that's critical?

20· · · · A· · If there was any evidence of damages, it

21· ·would have been documented on all the previous

22· ·contracts, it was not documented on yours as well. I

23· ·rely on the evidence before me.

24· · · · Q· · Just to be crystal clear, so I understand,

25· ·Enterprise Holdings has no policy to have video when

·1· ·they're implicating a person for damage, you allow it

·2· ·to rerecord?

·3· · · · A· · As I explained before, after 30 days they

·4· ·rerecord.· I explained that to you.

·5· · · · Q· · But I want to make sure I keep a note of

·6· ·that.· After 30 days, it rerecords.

·7· · · · · · ·THE COURT:· Sir, that's the fifth time you

·8· · · · said that.· Please move on.

·9· · · · · · ·MR. HOWE:· I don't think I have much more.

10· · · · This will be used for Congress.· Oh, believe me.

South Africa Will Host First Enterprise Africa Summit in 2019

CAPE TOWN , SOUTH AFRICA , September 28, 2018 / — Cape Town – From January 24-25, 2019 the full ecosystem of Africa’s enterprise applications leaders will gather under one roof in Cape Town for the inaugural Enterprise Africa Summit.

This first ever conference and exhibition will feature nearly 40 speakers for a packed two-day program featuring keynote and animated presentations, moderated panel discussions and up to 12 hours of networking sessions, lunches, coffee breaks, dinners and receptions. The event will attract 600 attendees spanning the enterprise applications spectrum, 90 percent of whom are in management positions.

“African business leaders charged with digital transformation within their organizations will not want to miss this one-time opportunity to hear from, and speak directly with, peers, recognized experts, and top global solution providers," said Jon Kent, Sales Director and Co-founder of the Enterprise Africa Summit. “We are eager to gather the continent’s leaders from far and wide for this breakthrough event.”

The Enterprise Africa Summit is the sole business-intensive event that gathers an audience of stakeholders, strategic leaders, and decision makers in one venue, presenting software and services providers a unique chance to get direct feedback on new products and services, to build relationships with counterparts and clients, and to gain an intimate, inside view of the ambitions and concerns of the African continent’s influencers and decision-makers.

Under the theme “Accelerating the Digital Sunrise,” the conference program capitalizes on the momentous green field opportunity that the African continent represents for enterprise software and services providers. In contrast to the saturated American & European markets – more than 70 percent of mid- to large-sized organizations have established some form of enterprise applications – Africa is an untapped frontier.

At the Enterprise Africa Summit, motivated African business leaders will benefit from a focused exploration and elucidation of often-convoluted technology messaging and concepts while software and services providers will gain a more client-intimate focus for their market messaging.

“Leaving hype and buzzwords at the door, this is the world’s first ever platform dedicated to promoting enlightened collaboration between organizations and software & service providers to propel the evolution of enterprise applications and emerging digital technologies in Africa,” said Michael Doane, Content Director and Co-founder of the Enterprise Africa Summit.

The Enterprise Africa Summit is organized by the Enterprise Alliance, which is the first network of its kind to connect clients with experienced experts who can help condense the growing complexity of enterprise applications into a comprehensible roadmap to realize the tremendous business benefits of the digital evolution. Through a series of business-centric conferences, Enterprise Alliance brings together the entire industry spectrum, including clients deploying enterprise software (SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, Infor, et al) and the ecosystem of consultants, systems integrators, strategic advisors, enterprise architects, enterprise software vendors, super users, and end users.

CVR Medical Shareholders Approve Restructure

The Approved Restructuring Provides Clarity, Responsibility and Accountability While Paving the Way to Long-term Success

CVR Medical Corp. (OTCQB:CRRVF)

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, September 28, 2018 / — CVR Medical Corp. (CVM.V) (TSXV: CVM) (FRANKFURT: B3BN) (OTCQB: CRRVF) ("CVR Medical”) announces that on September 26, 2018 the Board of Directors for CVR Medical Corp. (CVM) held a Special Meeting of the Shareholders to approve amongst many things the Restructuring of the Agreement between CVR Medical Corp. and CVR Global Inc. CVR Medical is pleased to report that the Shareholders approved the restructuring as well as all other matters voted. This restructured agreement calls for the companies to terminate and relinquish the previously agreed upon 50%/50% profit sharing structure in exchange for 30MM shares of CVR Medical Corp. stock and additional royalties associated with the commercialization and future sales of the Carotid Stenotic Scan (CSS). All of the current and future Intellectual Property pertaining to the CSS will now reside within CVR Medical. The agreement is subject to and will require TSX.V approval, which CVR Medical leadership anticipates being forthcoming. With the approved transaction CVR Global Inc. will transition to a milestone driven equity-based contractor and upon achieving the milestones stated below, could allow them to become one of the Company’s largest shareholders which includes the following:

• Approval & Signing of Agreement (3MM Shares)
• FDA Submission (2MM Shares)
• FDA Clearance / Approval (10MM Shares)
• Achievement of $50MM in Sales Revenue from CSS Device Sales (15MM Shares) *
*Contingent on a maximum 36-month timeframe from initial CSS sale

Additionally, CVR Global would also be granted a 7% royalty on all CSS device sales, with a 3% royalty on all associated disposable sales.

“As with any undertaking, my goal in this restructure was to have all stakeholders benefit from this transaction and the future successes it will facilitate” states CVR Medical CEO/President Peter Bakema. “This deal was always going to be much easier in theory than in implementation, hence the prolonged timeline. This restructure will allow for the distribution of both risk and reward, while the future economics surely inure to the benefit of the CVR Medical shareholders. There is a significant buy-in by all parties involved, a statement that is only validated by the recent equity investments made by CVR Medical Board Members. This will not only free us up operationally, but it also cleans up a corporate structure which lacked clarity. Roles are now clearly defined, as is the pathway to our ultimate goal of the CSS market launch.”
