Brook Forest Voices Releases "A Stroke of Luck" by Juli & Jessica Dixon as an Audiobook Oct 31, 2014 08:30PM

Evergreen, Colorado (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

Alex Dixon, a happy and seemingly healthy 12 years old, unexpectedly has a stroke. Narrated by Tara Saltzman,"A Stroke of Luck" details the perilous and courageous journey Alex and her entire family take in the hope of her recovery.

Traditional treatments relying on physical therapy and medication fail to relieve the acute pain and muscle spasms. Drastic measures to relieve Alex are taken with a medical team surgically embedding wires deeply into her brain, which are then connected to a battery implanted in her chest. While relieving the pain and spasms this radical procedure had unexpected results.

In "A Stroke of Luck," Juli and Jessica Dixon recount their family's heartbreaking journey. As Eric A. Sheldon, M.D., Founder and Medical Director at Miami Research Associates notes, "teaching us the healing power of optimism, love, and determination".

Considering "A Stroke of Love" was written by Alex's mother Juli, a prolific author and professor of mathematics education at the University of Central Florida, her sister Jessica who was 11 years old when she began the project, and was narrated by Tara Saltzman, her aunt and narrator of several BFV titles, this audiobook is a true labor of love. Dr. Timothy D. Kanold Ph.D, former superintendent of Adlai E. Stevenson High School states, "Be prepared to cry, to cheer, to hope and to be amazed. As Alex teaches us: 'Don't forget life is a gift. You need to be thankful.' "

"A Stroke of Luck," will be released in CD and downloadable formats in mid-November. It may be purchased through the online BFV Audiobook Store or at other popular audiobook venues.

WMS Vendor Datex Fast Tracks Implementation for New Warehouses, 3PLs & Distribution Centers Oct 31, 2014 08:30PM

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

Supply chain software developer Datex recently introduced a new program to expedite warehouse management software implementations including for supply chain operations. The new program targets companies that are building new warehouses or distribution centers, expanding multi-facility operations or starting third party logistics operations. Using Datex FootPrint® WMS, clients can have the flexibility to service the individual needs of customers at a fraction of the cost of Tier 1 WMS and ERP systems. Owners can have the peace of mind of knowing that their employees will be ready on the first day of business operations. Datex WMS software is highly scalable, flexible and reliable, ideal for growing businesses.

The new WMS implementation program enables companies to fast track the training of employees who will be using the Datex FootPrint® WMS software so that all workers are fully trained before the first day of operations. A variety of training options are available to ensure that all employees will have the opportunity to learn and use the system quickly and at their own pace.

Datex FootPrint® WMS includes an advanced workflow engine which enables clients to customize the business processes within the warehouse management system without writing code or using proprietary scripting languages. As part of the software implementation, the business processes for each customer are outlined in a diagram. Each business process is then easily configured using the workflow engine. This saves valuable implementation time over software that relies on source code because only configuration is involved rather than source code modifications. As developers are not needed to make alterations to source code, there is a noticeable cost savings and implementation time is decreased. Using a workflow driven system also ensures more accurate, efficient processes that can be changed as needed without changing software source code.
