iMaxAlarm Launches Their Latest Collection of Personal Security and Safety Devices: iMaxAlarm KIDS

iMaxAlarm, a Los Angeles based personal safety and security company, has expanded their collection of personal security alarm systems to include a group designed and developed specifically for children.

LOS ANGELES, CA, November 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — iMaxAlarm, a Los Angeles based personal safety and security company, has expanded their collection of personal security alarm systems to include a group specifically designed for children.

Inspired by the shape of an average key fob, the iMaxAlarm KIDS emits an ear piercing 130dB siren which is intended to not only startle a potential aggressor, but will also alert others to the child’s immediate need for help. Simply pull the key from the top of the device and it will emit a screeching SOS alert which will frighten a school yard bully, deter a potentially threatening „stranger danger“ encounter, or simply draw the attention of a nearby bystander to the pending emergency. The iMaxAlarm KIDS comes ready to use, right out of the box, and both a carabiner and lanyard are included in the packaging for easy attachment to a child’s backpack or for wearing around the neck. The device has a continuous run time of 30 minutes and can be easily turned off by re-inserting the key into the top of the device.

As a company, iMaxAlarm strongly believes in Social Responsibility and has committed to the promotion and support of the growing Street Harassment movement (SH), affecting the community at large. Street Harassment is a type of harassment which can take many forms including unwelcome words, gestures and actions by a stranger in a public space, and is primarily motivated by gender or gender identity, sexual orientation and/or racial bias. With the launch of iMaxAlarm KIDS, we have expanded our definition of Street Harassment to incorporate multiple forms of Bullying including Physical, Verbal, Social and Cyber. Recent statistics show that Bullying is on the rise among young adults, teens and children, and iMaxAlarm will continue to be a consistent voice and champion for the protection of all women, men and children, no matter their race, color, religious creed, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, physical disability or mental disability.

Univ. of Buffalo’s Tessa Ooyama Wins 2017 DeviceLab Biomedical Engineering Scholarship

$1000 Award Being Given to Aspiring mHealth Biomedical Engineer Interested in Developing Wearable Concussion and mTBI Monitoring Devices

BUFFALO, NY, November 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — DeviceLab Inc., an Orange County medical device design and manufacturing company, today announced Tessa Ooyama as the winner of its 2017 DeviceLab Biomedical Engineering Scholarship program.

Ooyama, a senior Biomedical Engineering major at the University of Buffalo, will receive a $1000 award from DeviceLab.

She was selected from dozens of highly qualified applicants asked to submit a 1,500-word essay that answered:

– What are the innovations in mHealth and wireless medical devices in the last three years?

– What are the trends for innovations for mHealth and wearable medical devices in the next three years?

– What will be your contribution to this industry?

Ooyama’s winning essay explained her interest in mHealth and wearable medical device technology as solutions for quickly and accurately diagnosing athletic concussions.

In her essay, Ooyama said she has „dedicated myself to finding a definitive test to diagnose concussions“ and detailed research for a wireless medical device solution that „produces results that are not subjective, and are not interpreted by someone’s judgment.“

Ooyama said there have been two key factors in discovering her passion for this research. First, as a former NCAA Division I athlete „medically disqualified“ after suffering multiple concussions, Ooyama is keenly aware of the flaws with current concussion diagnoses and the impacts of sustaining injuries. Second, her pursuit of a Biomedical Engineering and fascination with „how everything works“ positioned her to take advantage of a Biosignals course project in which she could choose her own project.

Expecting to graduate in May 2018, Ooyama said she has ambitions to attend graduate school to continue her Biomedical Engineering studies. Ultimately, she would like to be a collaborator on a medical device design and development team.

„This is the second year DeviceLab offered its scholarship program, which was created to both encourage and reward medical device engineering students pursuing educations that may lead to a better world,“ said DeviceLab founder and CEO Dac Vu.

„As a company specializing in medical device engineering, DeviceLab is always eager to support the next generation of talent in our field,“ said Vu. „We were very impressed with Tessa’s embrace of mHealth and wearable medical devices and how well she answered the essay questions.“

About DeviceLab
DeviceLab is an ISO-13485 certified medical device development company that has completed more than 100 medical device design projects of varying complexity–including medical device software development and wireless medical device design services for the newest breeds of medical IoT, mHealth and medical wearables.

Crowdfunding Seeks To Save Salmon from Extinction

A Non profit organization is launching a crowdfunding campaign to save the salmon. Federal and State departments of Fish and Wildlife have listed Salmon as a threatened and endangered species.

SEATTLE, WA, November 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — The extinction of salmon is a real threat that must be stopped. The construction of dams and water diversions has done irreversible damage, blocking the natural passage of the salmon. Activities like gravel mining, logging and urban development have also seen the returns on salmon dip sharply.

Dam operators are spending billions and are frustrated with the current direction, with minimal results towards the threat. This is where Northwest Fisheries Enhancement would make a perfect fit, and hopefully dam operators will back NWFE.

This is why NWFE is launching this all out crowdfunding campaign to save the salmon. The Seattle Times argues that budget cuts proposed by President Donald Trump will essentially put an end to funding for salmon recovery, leaving state and local resources strained, and endangering the species even further.

With an increasing reliance on imported fish, and shrinking jobs in hatcheries and fisheries every day, it is clear a salmon extinction will be devastating.

Salmon are an important way of life.
Rivers full of salmon mean a healthy ecosystem. Alive, the salmon check the levels of algae and smaller fish. When they die, the nutrients from their bodies nurture forests and the ecosystem at large. It goes full circle.

Not only does their movement bring nutrients to our rivers and shores, they are a big pull for tourists and they create jobs for locals. They are a cornerstone of culture, diet, economy and our environment.

Northwest Fisheries Enhancement seeks to actively play a role in stopping the extinction of salmon. It is a non-profit organization whose approach is geared towards salmon recovery.

It will do this through:
– Developing partnerships that offer hatchery owners competitive management options without relying too heavily on the government.

– Strengthening and building Community Fisheries Organizations (CFOs) to help improve Salmon and Steelhead returns to their rivers.

– Meeting responsible and modern practices for Hatchery options and Wild/ Natural Origin Salmon with New and Proven models.

You can join the efforts to save salmon from extinction today. It is a solid, reasonable investment, as shown by the Seattle Times in March 2017. By restoring watersheds and other projects, investing in the recovery of salmon created more than 16 jobs for every 1 Million dollars. The money remains in the local county too, meaning more can be done with it.

It is the the intention of NWFE to help Community Fisheries Organizations (CFO) with Salmon and Steelhead egg, fry and smolt plantings and re-introduction into their rivers and streams by the millions. There are hundreds if not thousands of River and streams where CFO’s can make a difference in saving and returning salmon and Steelhead runs. NWFE will provide hatchery management for hatchery owners, improving their Salmon and Steelhead smolt releases by the millions, decreasing management costs and improving efficiency. By donating to the cause now, you are saving the jobs of the people who work daily with the salmon. This is the surest way to eliminate the loss of salmon through mismanagement.

Take matters into your own hands; join Northwest Fisheries Enhancement in creating real change. For information on how to donate so „Save The Salmon“ crowdfunding, visit:

„This has been one of the hardest decisions of my life, but I feel that my energy, resources and time need to shift toward research and finding a cure“

PORTLAND, OR, November 20, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — It’s been a long journey for Molly McCabe – Co-Founder of Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus.

McCabe was diagnosed with lupus, an autoimmune disease that causes the body to do damage to itself with its own anti-bodies. When Molly was diagnosed with Lupus in 2006 there was very little known about the disease, it took numerous doctors to find the reason for her chronic pain, inflammation, intense sickness. Out of this painful and frustrating struggle for a lupus diagnosis, Molly focused on creating a resource for others like her. Molly’s mother, Debbie and Molly, founded Molly’s Fund Fighting Lupus, an organization dedicated to raising awareness about the disease.
