    Wise Orchard Smart Watering System Raising Funds to Transform Gardening

    (PRWEB) June 11, 2015

    Wise Orchard, a smart irrigation system that manages watering automatically and offers an unprecedented level of control and better care over gardens, announced today that it is launching a Kickstarter campaign on June 11, 2015. Wise Orchard is a smart internet-connected valve that automatically adjusts the watering schedule and helps take better care of garden and plants. It pulls local weather data automatically from multiple weather forecast services and thousands of weather stations in order to create and adjust a personalized watering plan in real time. In addition to that, it uses its plant database to offer specific advice on the garden and plants it’s taking care of so that they can thrive and stay healthy. The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise enough funds for the first round of manufacturing as well as for building the software that intelligently automates the Wise Orchard watering valve.

    Wise Orchard takes the guesswork out of the equation when it comes to adjusting watering, helping save money and conserve precious water. By taking into account rainfall and only using the amount of water needed, based on the local weather, Wise Orchard helps solve the problem of wasteful irrigation. This also makes it more cost-effective: it is estimated to reduce water bills by up to 30 percent.

    Wise Orchard is designed with both novice and expert gardeners in mind, simplifying taking care of the garden for people who are not experts or are too busy to do manual adjustments as the weather changes. It is also remotely accessible on the Internet, very easy to use, affordable and smart, granting an unprecedented level of automation and control over watering. For expert gardeners, Wise Orchard offers many customization options that will let them take their garden care to the next level. Wise Orchard not only automates watering, it also offers tips such as warning when to prune plants, warning about likely diseases or even warning of freezing temperatures in advance. Gardeners can watch over their plants and have full control of their irrigation through Wise Orchard’s mobile application, which will be available for iPhone and Android, and on the web too.

    Key Wise Orchard features:

    Connected to the Internet via Wifi
    Automatically waters plants when they need it using artificial intelligence algorithms. It can also be configured manually.
    Weather forecasts, local weather and plant database to better plan the watering schedule and help take better take care of plants
    Easy to install (drop-in replacement for common irrigation timers, compatible with most drip irrigation and garden hose-fed sprinklers).
    Two pipe thread versions to fit standard pipe threads in both USA and Europe.
    Backup: the watering schedule is stored on the device so it will keep working even when there’s no Internet connection.
    Compatible with all kinds of plants: ornamental, shrubs, vegetables, etc.

    Key Wise Orchard mobile app and online website features:

    Manual or custom watering schedule, controlling the Wise Orchard valve remotely
    Can set periods of time when it’s ok or not ok to water. Wise Orchard will automatically decide when to water within the allowed intervals.
    Everything can be configured from a smartphone
    Watering can be postponed for the day or for any period of time with the touch of a button
    Control unlimited zones / valves from the app
    Lets users configure alerts to receive tips to help them take care of their plants

    Wise Orchard is the brainchild of Alvaro Salmador, software engineer and gardening enthusiast who is “always looking for ways to make things better through the use of advanced technologies”. He has extensive experience in several fields including machine learning and machine vision.

    The Wise Orchard water valve will be available for pre-order on the Kickstarter campaign page, with special pricing for the earliest backers. Additional rewards will be available on the Kickstarter campaign page as well.

        Cluso Investigation Launches iPhone “Mobile Interrogator”, an Interviewer’s Video Solution Designed by Licensed Private Investigators.

        Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) May 21, 2015

        Cluso Investigation’s “Mobile Interrogator” is now available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch (with iOS 7.0 or greater). The download is available on iTunes for free.

        Designed by expert licensed investigators, the app provides an easy way to build a script of questions and capture audio/video responses. The app is Intended for the person conducting the interview but simple enough to help everyone learn to ask more questions and execute better interviews. Asking questions is a typical job responsibility for an investigator. Also important is listening carefully to responses; individuals may provide inconsistent information or provide minor, inaccurate details. By building a script of questions and capturing video, the user can focus and listen to responses knowing the script keeps the interview on track.    

        Several online data aggregators provide instant, yet inaccurate background check results. In contrast, Cluso Investigation provides a highly reliable, audit ready report by adding the extra effort required for accuracy. “We designed our app to be a proactive detective’s notebook for the 21st century because everyone can benefit by improving their interview skills”, states Sharon Sutila, CEO and Founder of Cluso Investigation.

        While most Interview apps provide sample questions for job interview practice, this app provides a tool specifically for the Interviewer. Questions are the building blocks for interviewing. If a user has trouble thinking of questions to ask, he or she can simply choose a category and pick from hundreds of readily available options.

        Designed as a versatile interviewing tool, a user can:

        1.    Plan lists of questions for different types of interviews

        2.    Find questions or ice-breakers to keep in mind for a networking event

        3.    Practice interviewing others to improve confidence

        4.    Practice being interviewed by someone else and record your answers.

        5.    Interview multiple people with one question and compare all

                the different points of view for a research project

        6.    Compare answers over time to mark improvement answering

                a specific set of questions

        7.    Prepare a delivery for anticipated interview questions

        8.    “Cluso Selfie-Interview”: Reverse the camera and provide video question responses as an interviewee

        9.    Conduct investigative reporting interviews, journalism, or other types

                of business-related interviews. Note: It is the responsibility of the user

                to ensure all federal, state and local laws are strictly followed in the use

                of the “Mobile Interrogator” app.

        “The best way to protect yourself against fraud or deception is to ask more questions. Then your intuition combined with a little research may be all you need to avoid a headache later”, says Sutila. Recording is optional because even if audio/video is not used, it is the script itself which is an invaluable tool for staying focused while listening to answers.

        The features are the following:

        1.    Choose from 1200+ stored suggestion questions or create customized questions.

        2.    Build scripted lists of questions. A drag and drop feature makes it easy to change the order of the questions listed.

        3.    Identify and build target profiles using the phone’s camera to attach a picture

        4.    Choose a “Target”, a “List”, and Start an Interview [optional audit/video recording]

                Rerecording answers is an option.

        5.    Compare all answers by interviewees on a key question.

        The “Mobile Interrogator” was developed by Asponte Technology, Inc. on behalf of Cluso Investigation, owner of the application. It’s one of the first publicly available mobile applications developed with IBM® MobileFirst. Additionally the app is part of an IBM Digital Experience solution using Web Portal Server for content updating without releasing new versions via the iTunes Store. Built for iPhone5 it is compatible with iOS 7.0 or greater. The Android® version is now available on Google® Play. Sharon Sutila, Cluso Investigation CEO, is the Concept Creator. Philip Cheshire, Asponte Software Engineer, is the Lead Developer and Nick Ciafardoni, Asponte Software Engineer, is an Apple iOS expert.

        Please note: Cluso Investigation is not a law firm and is not providing legal advice. Recording is an option and isn’t necessary to use the application for interviewing. Each user is reminded in the application’s instructions to ensure compliance with all federal, state and local laws.

          New Book from American University Expert Sends a Message to the Class of 2015: Run for Office!

          Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) April 30, 2015

          Graduation season has arrived for high school and college students and if American University professor of government Jennifer Lawless and her co-author, professor of political science at Loyola Marymount University Richard Fox, were giving commencement speeches to the Class of 2015, they might go something like this:

          “We have good news and we have bad news. After conducting a national survey of more than 4,000 high school and college students, plus more than 100 in-depth interviews with these young people, the good news is that you are civic-minded and want to improve your communities. The bad news is that, according to our survey, eighty-nine percent of you have already dismissed the idea of ever running for political office.”

          Lawless and Fox, the authors of the new book Running from Office: Why Young Americans Are Turned Off to Politics(Oxford University Press, May 2015), might also say:

          “But it’s not your fault. Politicians and the dysfunctional political system have contributed to your lack of political ambition. Teachers, coaches, and the media have reinforced the most negative aspects of the political arena. Government shutdowns, hyper-partisanship, political scandals, and gridlock have turned you off to thinking politics is way to solve problems. In fact, these kinds of things have soured your parents and other mentors from encouraging you to consider a future in elective office. But consider the consequences…”

          500,000 Elected Offices in Search of the Best and Brightest

          There are more than 500,000 elective offices in the United States, many of which serve as stepping stones to higher office. “Elected officials craft, shape, and implement the laws that affect citizens now and for generations to come,” explain Lawless and Fox. But only a fraction of the best and brightest young people – a mere 11 percent of people in their survey – are willing to seek elected office.

          In fact,they would rather do almost anything else. In one set of questions, Lawless and Fox presented students with four career options – business owner, teacher, mayor of a city or town, and salesperson – and asked them which they would most like to be, assuming that each paid the same amount of money. Nine out of ten respondents chose a career other than mayor as their first choice. Nearly 40 percent reported that it would be their least desired job.

          They also asked them which of the following four higher echelon jobs they found most appealing: business executive, lawyer, school principal, or member of Congress. Serving as a member of Congress came in dead last (just 13 percent of young people chose it). However, it placed first on the “least desirable list.”

          “Young people are interested in saving the world and care about making their communities a better place. But they don’t consider electoral politics a way to achieve those goals,” says Lawless.

          Political Dysfunction Turning Young People Off

          Who can blame young people for ranking a political career so low on their list of life goals? This generation has witnessed hyper-partisan vitriol coming not only from the mouths of politicians, but also from the profusion of pundits and media outlets catering to the extremes on the political spectrum. The increased bandwidth of the Internet – from blogs to cable news to social media – spew partisan brinkmanship 24 hours a day that has stripped away any goodwill elected officials might ever have generated. Eighty-five percent of the survey respondents did not think that elected officials want to help people; 79 percent did not consider politicians smart or hardworking; nearly 60 percent believed that politicians are dishonest; and fewer than 30 percent thought that candidates and elected leaders stand up for their convictions.

          Can the Appeal of Elected Office be Resurrected?

          Lawless and Fox provide practical and innovative suggestions for how new technologies, national service programs, and well-strategized public service campaigns could generate political ambition in young people. “If young people saw politics as a vibrant, effective way to engage with and improve their communities and society,” say Lawless and Fox, “then more of them would not be turned off by the thought of entering the fray.”

          Five suggestions are provided in Running from Office that could change young people’s attitudes. But it will take money and motivation, combined with politicians serving as better role models, supporting innovative programs, and partnering with entrepreneurs, activists, journalists and teachers to combat the political ambition deficit.

          Here’s how Lawless and Fox suggest to shift current attitudes:

          YouLead Initiative is a national service program with the message that young people are needed to foster new leadership. It would seek to change their impressions of politicians and encourage potential political leadership by identifying high school and college students who have already exhibited leadership success.

          Playstation for Politics is a way to engage young people on a platform where they already spend a lot of time: video games. Building video games around becoming a candidate and engaging in campaigns and elections (including financing a campaign, weathering a scandal, and developing a platform to win both a primary and a general election, with all the pitfalls along the way) could be an educational thrill.

          Political Ambition – Put That in Your Bong and Smoke It proposes making political engagement a fundamental part of the college application experience. Lawless and Fox adhere to the belief that civic interest should be added to the factors colleges consider in the admissions process. They make clear that college applicants should be aware of major political issues and that college admissions officers should incentivize the importance of following current events and policy debates.

          Girls Uninterrupted—Increase College Women’s Political Ambition solves two problems. First, it’s a program that mentors, equips, and encourages young women to consider running for elected office, which could help close the gender gap in political ambition among adults. College men in the survey indicated they are twice as likely as college women to express interest in running for elected office later in life. Second, by increasing the percentage of women interested in running for office, the program would increase the talent pool of potential candidates more broadly.

          The Go Run App would identify all elected offices throughout the country. Users would enter their zip code and learn what elected positions are available in that community, the responsibilities associated with each, and the nuts and bolts involved in running for them. As basic as this information might sound, no central clearinghouse currently exists to provide this fundamental information.

          Ultimately, Lawless and Fox paint a political profile of the next generation that serves as a vital wake-up call – one that sounds an alarm about the long-term, deeply embedded damage contemporary politics has wrought on U.S. democracy and its youngest citizens. But the suggestions they provide propose clear ways that we can right the course.
