New Law Firm Pierce Sergenian LLP Launches Sophisticated Website with Look Toward the Digital Age

Digital Agency Wicked Bionic Creates New Brand

LOS ANGELES, CA, February 28, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Managing Partner John M. Pierce wanted to innovate. As he was laying the groundwork for his eventual partnership with fellow attorney David Sergenian, Mr. Pierce was looking to change the way law firms presented themselves on the web. „I didn’t want to look like everyone else. With young attorneys at the firm who grew up in the digital age, and my years of experience working as a litigator for the most innovative, cutting-edge companies, it was imperative to bring a new look and feel to litigation and its presence online.“

Long-established and enormously successful law firms seem to have neglected the opportunities available in the age of digital. Consulting with Los Angeles digital marketing agency, Wicked Bionic, Mr. Pierce relayed his vision for his new firm. Not known for his shyness, Mr. Pierce wanted to portray those qualities that make him one of the top litigators in the country.

Wicked Bionic owners Carlos Sapene (formerly head of digital at NBCUniversal) and partner (former television production executive) Dana C. Arnett met numerous times with Mr. Pierce to discover and interpret his vision for piercesergenian.com. Mr. Sapene smiles when he says, „John was very, very clear that his company website was going to be something that had not been done before – this was to have a modern look, creative and intelligent and, like John himself, there wasn’t to be anything ambiguous about it’s presentation“. The agency’s Creative Director, Kathy Fazio, interpreted Mr. Pierce’s vision by creating a color scheme of blue and gold with powerful imagery. Paratroopers coming in for a landing; two large, intense bulls locking horns in the mud; a macro black and white chessboard – these are the first images one sees when arriving at piercesergenian.com.

Capturing and conveying attorney personalities on law firm websites is not a traditional approach. At piercesergenian.com, in addition to education and areas of expertise, both attorney’s and associates have their own bio page with stylized photography and a personal quote. „The point was to inject an immediate sense of familiarity and connection with each of our attorneys. In this day and age, clients are looking to hire real, three-dimensional attorneys and not just a law firm. Wicked Bionic did an excellent job of capturing this reality,“ says Mr. Pierce. Mr. Sapene adds, „In addition to designing an attractive site, we wanted the functionality to be user-friendly with clean navigation that leads the user to discover all the components of the firm.“

Wicked Bionic works with clients developing websites, marketing strategies and social media campaigns in a wide variety of professions. „Many of our clients know they want a website or a rebrand and we are entrusted with creating that vision for them and presenting it. John, on the other hand, was involved every step of the way and our job was to design, style and implement his vision. Obviously as a top litigator he has a way with words so we got to experience his talent first hand as he wrote the majority of the text on the site. We enjoyed every moment of collaboration with John,“ says Ms. Arnett, who managed the project.

Mr. Pierce is equally complimentary when he says, „My experience working with the Wicked Bionic team was truly top-notch. They are extremely talented and delivered much more than we ever hoped for. I attribute much of my firm’s success to their sophisticated website design.“

Pierce Sergenian LLP and their website launched January 3, 2017. As the firm continues to grow, the website will grow along with it. Mr. Sapene has a solid marketing vision; „We will be constantly evolving piercesergenian.com, using social media, marketing strategies, latest news sections and announcements as tools to keep the firm on the cutting edge of digital innovation.“

Keeping Our Cool in Space

The Two-Phase Flow investigation looks at the heat transfer characteristics of how boiling liquids turn into vapor in microgravity.

HOUSTON, TX, February 28, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — As spacecraft become larger, the heat they produce also increases. That means vehicles built for long-term space exploration need more efficient cooling systems.

The Two-Phase Flow investigation looks at the heat transfer characteristics of how boiling liquids turn into vapor in microgravity. Flow boiling is boiling with forced flow over a heated surface, while two-phase flow refers to both phases – vapor and liquid – flowing together in a single channel or tube. Using a loop with a transparent heating tube aboard the International Space Station, researchers will establish flow rate, heating power, ratio of vapor to total flow, and other effects under different conditions. These data will contribute to better fundamental understanding of the behavior of liquid and vapor and the mechanism of how heat is transferred in microgravity.

On Earth, this understanding has potential applications in cooling system design for high performance computers, data servers, and electric vehicles.

Satoshi Matsumoto, a project scientist with the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), said „Thermal management systems must remove large amounts of thermal energy, transport waste heat long distances to radiators, and cool high levels of thermal energy generated by power devices. Accomplishing all this requires more efficient methods to remove thermal energy, and devices using boiling and two-phase flow show more promise than conventional methods.“

Boiling removes heat by turning liquid into vapor at the heated surface. Cooling systems use condensers that cool the vapor and produce condensation on the surface of the unit, thus turning that vapor back into a liquid, in a continuous cycle. In a two-phase flow system, heat is removed when the liquid vaporizes during boiling, resulting in high-performance heat removal and transportation.

Mixtures of liquids and bubbles behave very differently in space, however.

On Earth, bubbles generated by boiling leave the surface of the liquid because of buoyant force – the bubbles are about 1,000 times less dense than the liquid. That buoyant force disappears in microgravity, so bubbles do not easily detach from the surface. They essentially form an insulating layer at the surface and could significantly decrease heat transfer.

The investigation will establish a database useful in designing next-generation systems for managing heat in space. Currently, no coherent database exists for the flow and heat transfer behaviors of mixtures of liquids and vapors used for flow boiling in microgravity.

„A database of boiling two-phase flow also can show us the conditions where gravity effect disappears, even if the coolant or geometry of pipes change,“ Matsumoto said. „This is important for designing cooling systems for space referencing results from the orbital experiment despite the limited number of experimental conditions.“

„In summary, our scientific goals are to clarify detailed mechanisms of heat transfer, establish a map of the dominant forces, and clarify details of liquid-vapor flow behaviors,“ said principal investigator Haruhiko Ohta, a researcher in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Kyusyu University in Japan. „This microgravity experiment will advance fundamental understanding of boiling two-phase flow, especially the relationship between the heat transfer and behavior at the interface.“

In addition, JAXA will establish standards for spacecraft thermal management systems using boiling two-phase circulation loops, including heat pipe loops as an alternative passive method to the pumped loop tested in this investigation.

More efficient thermal management systems, in space and on Earth, will help us keep our cool.

From Tools to Trash: Marshall’s Payload Stowage Team Tracks It

For many of us spring cleaning is an annual ritual and it will be here before we know it. Imagine trying to keep everything organized year-round in a five-bedroom house where everything floats.

HOUSTON, TX, February 28, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — For many of us spring cleaning is an annual ritual and it will be here before we know it. Imagine trying to keep everything organized year-round in a five-bedroom house where everything floats. And that house is moving 17,500 miles per hour orbiting the Earth 250 miles above us. That’s exactly the job of a small team at the Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama.

The Stowage Team in NASA’s Payload Operations Integration Center at Marshall helps astronauts on the International Space Station stay organized. From tools to power cords and even trash, this team performs the choreography needed to track every item used for science experiments.

The team manages a database where each piece of equipment is kept and tracked by a barcode system much like in a grocery store. This database stores information such as the date, time and last person to use it.

„When an astronaut is looking for a piece of equipment and can’t find it, we go to our database,“ said Allison Quesenbery, a member of the stowage team. „Every item is in there. Every time an item moves, we change it in the database, so we can help them locate it. The database is invaluable.“

The team plans every move of every piece of payload equipment for the crew, from unpacking cargo to consolidating related items to putting things back in its place, all with the item’s next use in mind, including trash disposal.

There are 12 members on the stowage team, but they can always use more help. All you need, according to them, is attention to detail.

There’s even a trash expert.

„Trashing is the hardest thing,“ said Keri Baugher of the stowage team. „You’d be surprised at all the paperwork that goes into throwing something away. We not only have to track when new things arrive, we also have to track when and where they are disposed of.“

When it comes to misplacing things, astronauts are no different, except that it’s even easier to lose things because they can put something down for one minute while performing an experiment and turn around and find it has moved.

„We don’t fault them for misplacing things,“ said Quesenbery. „They have a lot going on up there, so we are here on the ground to help. With so many items and so many stowage locations, it’s nearly impossible for them to keep track of things all the time.“

Quesenbery and Baugher agree the job is at times stressful, but it’s also a fun challenge, a bit like a scavenger hunt.

„Sometimes we’ll be watching live video from the station and just see something float by the camera. We then have to quickly get word to them that the item they’ve been searching for or we’ve been trying to locate just passed by,“ said Baugher.

Some things can take days or weeks to find. There’s even a „lost in space“ database, and the occasional „Wanted“ poster, asking the crew to keep an eye out for important items that have floated away.

Because, while we know the item hasn’t left the confines of the orbiting laboratory, it’s impossible to pop down to the hardware store to pick up a replacement.

BANGALORE, INDIA, February 27, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ — Plumb5 releases an NLP (Natural Language Processing) based Data Search feature that combines data relationship tags and NLP to offer easy to use natural language based report generation, without having to depend on a data analyst for every report request.This feature can analyse big data (millions of rows) to any granularity in seconds using the unified data model and can provide accurate real-time analytics for any time period.

„NLP based data search can drastically reduce the time taken to create custom reports over silos and will allow any user across the organisation to simply ask anything to get answers or metrics in seconds, based on user permissions. The user can pin these reports to a dashboard and share it with other business users,“ says Chief Executive Officer, Vijay Chander.

This overlay feature can be implemented on any existing data in an easy wizard driven fashion. Highly configurable user permissions make sure users access answers within the permissible limit.

„The mapping mechanism uses a hierarchical map structure resembling a neural network which helps in building a scalable relational search. As data grows, all we need to do is to add the new data entities to the relationship structure and update the keyword list,“ says Principal Information Architect, Veerendra HR.

It can be readily integrated over existing data environments using intuitive screens for data tagging and mapping keywords. On extracting insights from the generated reports, users can convert them to trigger next actions using the rule engine.

Plumb5 uses unified data architecture in its core, finds it easy to map external data to a pre-defined neural structure. Adding to this, an inbuilt weight distribution algorithm allows in prioritising responses in order to understand and present reports over polynomial data.

„The next steps would be to integrate the bot with messaging & collaboration services like Skype. The idea is to have the Plumb5 bot join a conference call as a participant and assist in fetching metrics, accept commands & learn all in real time.“ says Raju Ramakrishnan who heads technology at Plumb5.

The Enterprises can now allow any user to ask and find answers or reports over the connected data. This saves the enormous amount of time required for techies and analysts to create custom reports over multiple silos.
