Silhouette User Interface Has Come! Nov 1, 2014 02:18AM

Best Way Of Controlling Out-Of-Touch

TATSUNO CITY, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- A small Japanese startup (JUICE DESIGN Co.,Ltd.) has developed an outstanding method of controlling a machine with a free hand.

Using the conventional concept of gesture recognition, it is possible to point a finger at the computer screen so that the cursor will move. But, it is difficult to recognize a virtual touch screen and get haptic feedback.

The newly-developed method “Silhouette User Interface” will pave much easier way for gestural equivalents of the mouse click. In this method, first, a 3D camera (e.g. KINECT, Leapmotion, or RealSense sensor) captures the movement of the user's hand. Second, the system displays the silhouette of the user's hand. Importantly, buttons are automatically transformed into “touch-enabled” ones. Finally, the user can conduct a mouse click equivalent by picking up one of the touch-enabled buttons with his/her hand silhouette.

The haptic feedback problem is resolved by the gesture of touching the tips of one's fingers. Hence, the user can quickly and precisely conduct mouse click equivalents. Silhouette User Interface (SUI) will be adopted on a wide scale including a smart TV, a smart glass, an interactive digital signage, in-car monitor etc. SUI will radically change the situation of non-contact operation world.

AMG Employee Management Attends CAHF Conference in Palm Springs Nov 1, 2014 02:00AM

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

AMG Employee Management will make a proud showing at the annual CAHF Conference in Palm Springs, California on November 9-12, 2014 to showcase their diverse time and attendance offerings. When it comes to time and attendance software, AMG Employee Management is committed to providing valuable solutions in response to customers' needs rather than forcing unwanted change. The debate between web-based and client-server systems is always at the forefront of the time and attendance industry. However, AMG's quality of service assurance benefits not only the organization, but flows downstream to all key players - customers and their many affiliates.

After attending the LeadingAge Trade Show in Nashville, Tennessee and learning many companies were forcing their clients to convert to web-based time and attendance software with no regard to individual need, AMG took matters to into their own hands by offering a choice: The choice between both client-server and web-based software. And unlike other companies who offer such services, with AMG, it is truly the customer's choice.

While some vendors actually force their clients to switch horses in midstream, AMG's mission is to serve customers through the delivery of premier software built to meet strategic requirements and suit all security needs.

Tony Galstyan, CEO of AMG Employee Management, Inc., assures customers that, "We strongly believe that the customer has the ultimate right to decide what software to choose, depending on the company's specific needs. After the LeadingAge Trade Show, providing our customers with this choice became our mission."

AMG Employee Management recognizes and understands that some businesses simply do not wish not to send their sensitive data up into the aforementioned "cloud." Many companies would much rather keep customer data on their local, off-the-grid network, and AMG completely understands this line of thinking.

That's why they pride themselves on supplying their clients with freedom of choice. Rarely does a day go by that one doesn't hear of data breaches. And because of this, client-server software allows businesses to rest-assured that their data is safe, secure, and locked-tight. Internet security is an ever-present concern, but with client-server software, safety is within reach.

However, when businesses decide to take the leap and float their client-server data to the web, AMG Employee Management helps make that transition seamlessly, devoid of any downtime without imposing a new learning-curve into the equation.

"Our way or the highway is not what AMG Employee Management, Inc. is all about," Galstyan concludes. "Your way is our high way."

About AMG Employee Management, Inc.
With over 20 years of industry experience, AMG Employee Management Inc. is a national leader in time attendance products, software, and services. This innovative Los Angeles company has a passion for providing employers with time attendance systems that boost the accuracy of time and payroll records. Built upon a commitment to customization, AMG Employee Management will design the time employee management system that is perfect for any size business.

Silicon Valley Startup Kicks Off Pilot To Launch Decaffeinated 100% Kona Coffees In New 97% Eco-Friendly Single Serves Packaging Nov 1, 2014 02:00AM

Silicon Valley, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

Pooki's Mahi announced today it will soon ship 100% Kona coffees in fully recyclable single serve cups. The cup design allows customers to see and smell their roast before brewing.

"Pilots are end-to-end tests widely used by manufacturing organizations in high tech corporations. Pooki's Mahi's second pilot will test the entire eco-system for the 100% Kona Coffee Single Serve product line for a few specific channels. We've kicked off a partnership with a new single serve manufacturer who can quickly turn around pilot and private label orders. What makes Pooki's Mahi's pilots unique is that the high tech (manufacturing) methodology is used for a low-tech product (food & beverage). Customer and partner feedback is incorporated before the next pilot (test) begins or an official new product introduction launch," says Pooki's Mahi's Founder/CEO Leslie Magsalay-Zeller.

She explains, "Pooki's Mahi's fulfillment and marketing partners provided feedback to improve the existing packaging so 'Decaf' is prominently displayed. Pooki's Mah's distributor, wholesale and private label customers expressed a desire to significantly improve the shipping containers to protect the product. Customers also requested a more sustainable cup and ability to smell the roast before brewing the 100% Kona coffees."

Pooki's Mahi's 100% Kona Coffee Single Serves are made from 100% Kona coffee beans grown on a family owned and operated farm established in 1997. Pooki's Mahi collaborated with key coffee partners to select the beans from their (coffee partners) farms and roast them to perfection at their headquarters in Oahu. Pooki's Mahi's coffee partners roasts the largest amount of 100% Kona Coffee beans. Pooki's Mahi's 100% Kona Single Serve Cups premiered at the 2014 Honoring the Emmys® Event.

Pooki's Mahi's decaffeinated 100% Kona coffee single serve manufacturer will produce the cups made from 100% polypropylene; recyclable along with other #5 plastics. A mesh filter allows customers to see and smell their favorite roast before brewing. Up to 14 grams can be accommodated in the cup design. Each single serve cup is individually wrapped in a barrier material to retain freshness.

Pooki's Mahi's 100% Kona coffee, Decaf will initially have 12 individually wrapped units in a standup pouch. A small number in the standup pouch will be used for the second pilot. Ultimately the 12 individually wrapped units will be packaged so it is protected from shipping tolerances.

4 Success Strategies for Veterans Making the Military to Civilian Transition from Career Key Nov 1, 2014 02:00AM

Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

In honor of Veterans Day on November 11, career guidance leader Career Key,, recommends four strategies to help veterans make a successful military to civilian transition. Leading to more confident career and education decisions, these strategies are based on the best practices and science of career counseling.

In career change, doing a little self-examination has big benefits, especially when veterans take a closer look at (1) their readiness for change, (2) their resources for making a good transition, (3) career options that are a close personality-career match, and (4) using a practical 4-step decision making process.

1. Evaluate readiness to make a career decision

The likelihood of a successful job search and career change increases if a veteran is "ready" or in a good position to take action. Readiness depends on many factors, like the ability to make a decision. It also depends on how complicated one's life is; are there significant family or financial pressures? Sometimes getting support in resolving a family issue frees up time and emotional energy to work on making a career change.

A short, affordable way to evaluate one's readiness is to take Career Key's Career Decision Profile assessment. It helps people identify and consider their barriers and readiness to make decisions.

2. Get more structure with the 4 S's of Transition: Situation, Self, Supports, and Strategies

Nancy Schlossberg developed an excellent "4 S Transition Model" that gives a practical framework for managing a transition. Although ideally used with a professional career counselor, individuals can get an overview in the above SlideShare presentation and on the Internet. The Model gives needed structure to the whole transition process, helping veterans identify and become aware of the sources of help they have and gaps they need to fill.

3. Explore and narrow career options to personality-career matches using Holland's Theory

Learning how to apply "person-environment fit" in Holland's Theory of Career Choice to exploring career options make the process more practical and relevant to veterans. While it helps to look at crosswalks of military occupations to civilian equivalents, a better place to start is by identifying one's strongest Holland personality types using a valid Holland assessment like The Career Key test.

Veterans can then narrow their exploration to occupations that match their personality, that have work environments more likely to lead to job satisfaction and success. As a result, military to civilian career crosswalks become more relevant and useful. Career exploration is not just about identifying the jobs a veteran can do (crosswalk civilian equivalents). Even more helpful to long term success is identifying jobs that fit a veteran's personality best.

Veterans should also match their strongest personality types to college majors and training programs if they choose to go back to college or get additional training.

4. Use the 4 step ACIP decision making model

Making a good career decision that won't be a source of regret begins with following a four step process called ACIP. The four steps are:
1. Alternatives – identifying options
2. Consequences – listing the pros and cons and using the free download Decision Balance Sheet
3. Information – actively searching for additional information to uncover potential negative information (reality testing), and
4. Plans – taking action and handling negative consequences as they occur.

Short videos and articles at The Career Key website explain the ACIP model using real-life examples, along with a free downloadable Decision Balance Sheet to fill out for each option being considered.

About the Career Key
Since 1997, Career Key has been the #1 Internet source for helping people choose careers and college majors. Advertising and registration-free, it offers valid career tests and career and education advice articles based on the best practices and science in the field. Career Key's author is nationally recognized counseling psychologist, Dr. Lawrence K. Jones, NCC, Professor Emeritus at N.C. State University.
