New Lower Pricing On Ethernet Over Copper

Ethernet CAT5 cables image
Business Ethernet is now more affordable than ever!

The premier telecom solutions agency 10gea.org today has announced a price reduction in Ethernet over Copper (EoC) based broadband circuits. With this new pricing, EoC provides business and enterprise customers with dedicated, reliable broadband at a fraction of the cost of a NxT1 bonded T1 circuit.

"We have seen the price of Ethernet over Copper drop for a while now, but this is the first time we can reduce the pricing on so many different speeds. While many people see EoC as a replacement for bonded T1 circuits, it can also be a great alternative to a DS3 line, especially with this new price drop where we can offer 45Mbps (equivalent to a ds3) for around $1600 per month, or $250 for 2Mbps symmetrical", 10gea.org?s VP of Sales Mr. Wind states.

Besides reduced pricing, customers can also expect some other promotions such as free installation, free equipment and in many cases even a free month of service. To find out if a location is within range of Ethernet over Copper facilities, companies can use the online Ethernet availability and quoting tool at 10gea.org. EoC speeds start at 2Mbps and can go all the way up to 200Mbps. According to 10gea, these lower speed Ethernet circuits (such as a 2Mbps line) are a very popular T1 line replacement - both for price and circuit scalability.

Similar to other deals TelePacific has made over the past year, the newly combined company will retain its headquarters in Los Angeles, but will continue to operate under the Tel West name with current president Jeff Swickard leading the unit. Up until now, TelePacific primarily concentrated on serving the California and Nevada markets, an effort that it has built organically and through various acquisitions to challenge large incumbents like AT&T ( NYSE: T ), CenturyLink ( NYSE: CTL ) and Verizon ( NYSE: VZ ).

Charter schools could hurt U.S. city school districts-Moody's

That way, all partners will be able to quote their own opportunities, create contracts independently and provide better customer service, Charter Business said. Since launching its channel program in late 2010, limited partner Salesforce functionality has led to missing or incomplete information, which causes sales fallouts and delays, Charter Business said. And as the cableco experiences what it called record month-over-month growth, in large part due to the channel, a change was imperative. As a result,Charter Business is opening its Salesforce portal, which integrates with Salesforce.com, to all authorized partners, including subagents.

Helicopter charter business soars in first six months

In August, another major credit agency, Standard & Poor's Ratings Service warned the rise of charter schools could pose credit risks to districts, too. Most states - 42 out of 50 - have charter schools, publicly financed institutions operating independently of districts and frequently run by corporations. According to Moody's, one in 20 U.S. students attends a charter school, so called because it is granted a charter to provide alternative education to standard public schools. But in 11 major cities, the percentage is much larger, "making charter schools a predominantly urban phenomenon," Moody's said.

UNplane.jpg Helitrip said the warm summer months had increased the popularity of pleasure flights across the county and had driven demand. The firm said its Scenic Severn and Historic Shropshire tours had proved popular with sightseers looking for a different outlook. Helitrip founder Steve Patterson said: We have had a promising first summer, with a helicopter arrival providing the perfect choice for school proms, weddings, horserace meetings, the Grand Prix at Silverstone and V Festival. The sunshine has also led to many local residents taking advantage of the spectacular views of Shropshire which can only be offered when travelling by air. The firm has also received interest from businesses looking at corporate helicopter charters as a way of overcoming traffic jams, parking worries and train delays for events and conferences. When travelling with colleagues, helicopter charter can be more cost-effective than you might think. Significantly reduced travel time eliminates the need for costly overnight stays and lost revenue from being away from the office, said Patterson.

10gea Now Offers Flat Rate T1 Line Service To Urban Areas Anywhere In The United States

t1 card
With our ?T1 Everywhere? flat rate program we are able to help those in hard to reach areas obtain business class bandwidth at an affordable price.

10gea.org, a leading telecommunications solutions provider specializing in high bandwidth circuits, is now offering flat rate internet T1 line services to businesses throughout the United States. According to 10gea, the most any business will have to pay for T1 service is $465 per month.

"This may seem like a high price to some but it actually is the highest price anyone has to pay. There are many areas where we offer T1 service for a fraction of that cost, however companies in rural areas can have a real hard time finding reliable and affordable bandwidth. With our 'T1 Everywhere' flat rate program we are able to help those in hard to reach areas obtain business class bandwidth at an affordable price,? 10gea.org?s VP of Sales Mr. Wind states.

According to the company T1 lines still server their need. While Ethernet based circuits like Ethernet over Copper and Fiber Ethernet continue to grow in popularity, there are still many areas in the United States that can?t be reached with Ethernet based services.

?Customers can use our T1 pricing tool to find the lowest price themselves. It will calculate the distances from the business address to various carrier POPs in order to find which circuits are available in that area. So someone in downtown New York may see Ethernet based pricing, while someone in rural Texas may see our T1 Everywhere promotion,? Mr. Wind continues.

Fast Food Protesters Demand Higher Pay

Two more food booths closed at the CNE

CNE Media Day Richard Drew/AP Photo Fast food workers demanding higher pay protested today nationwide, outside restaurants owned by Burger King, KFC, McDonald's, Wendy's and other chains. Organizers said demonstrations were taking place in as many as 50 cities big and small, including New York, Dallas and Chicago; but also San Leandro, Calif.; and Missoula, Mont. Mary Kay Henry, president of the Service Employees International Union , one of several unions providing support to the protesters, said in a statement: "The fast food workers are fighting for all of us. SEIU members, like all service-sector workers, are worse off when large fast-food and retail companies are able to hold down wages." The protests came a day after the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, one of the objectives of which had been to give all Americans "a decent standard of living." Organizers said the protests extend beyond fast food restaurants and include some stores owned by Macy's, Sears and Victoria's Secret, among other retailers, and even coffee bars in Seattle. The federal minimum wage--$7.25 an hourlast was raised in 2009. Protesters are asking for $15 an hour.

Fast-food industry: healthy or just hanging on?

Outrageous fast food menu items Bourbon Street Grill and Bao 360 Shanghai Express were closed not because anyone got sick but due to a proactive inspection program, said Jim Chan, food inspection manager for Toronto Public Health. Chan said food safety inspectors had given Bourbon Street Grill a conditional pass on the day it opened and continued to monitor it. After a reinspection on Tuesday, it was shut down, along with Bao 360 which shared a kitchen. The DineSafe inspectors report mentioned a failure by the operator to prevent gross unsanitary conditions, properly wash multi-use utensils, maintain hazardous foods at the proper temperature and ensure that food is not contaminated. A spokesperson for Innovated Restaurant Group said the CNE outlets were run by an independent licensee who has been operating at that location for the past number of years without incident. We understand that this is the first year both units have to operate without a storage space.

Ahead of planned picketing by fast-food workers seeking $15-an-hour minimum wage, experts are pondering whether McDonalds, KFC and their quick-service ilk are strong enough to support such a drastic change. Data from research group Sageworks suggests that fast-food eateries are in a strong financial position, enjoying a relatively high 4.6% profit margin. Between August 2012 and 2013, the segment grew sales at its highest rate since the recession, enjoying a 12.9% boost, according to the group.

Inquirer Editorial: Terrible timing for food assistance cuts

Many of these families already lack the means to buy enough healthy food. The cuts will no doubt make matters worse, especially because they are set to occur during the fall, when families have to spend more to heat their homes. For millions of Americans, the recession's effects linger. The number receiving food aid under the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program has grown from 28 million to 47 million since 2008. Even more are probably going hungry. In 2010, about a quarter of those eligible for SNAP did not take advantage of it.

Food trend: Desserts in a jar

Walmart has a made a commitment to open 275 to 300 stores in food desert areas by 2016. Steven Restivo, Senior Director of Communications at Wal-Mart, describes supermarkets as "magnets for further development." They attract new people to the area and create a customer base for beauty salons, movie theaters, and specialist grocers that wasn't there before. Meanwhile, pharmacy chain Walgreens says that 45% of its stores are located in or around areas that don't have access to fresh food.

Food Stamps Avoided By Millions Of Eligible Americans

"I hated it." Roach felt frustrated by the Virginia Department of Social Services' 18-page application form, which asks people seeking benefits a wide range of questions about their income, assets, family situation and expenses -- standard information required from nutrition assistance applicants in any state. He particularly disliked a question about whether he owned a burial plot. "I thought it was very unpleasant," he said. "A very morbid question." (A version of the form on the DSS website indicates the question is only for people seeking "Medicaid, Auxiliary Grants, or Refugee Medical Assistance," but the query is on the same page as other questions about resources for SNAP applicants.) The Virginia Department of Social Services has seen its food stamp caseload nearly double from more than 232,000 in July 2007, before the onset of the Great Recession, to nearly 459,000 today. A spokesman said the agency has not received a corresponding increase in funding to process the claims.

Food pantries go to school

Food Delivery Hits The Web, But Restaurants Pay The Price

John Ewing / Staff Photographer LOCATIONS OF SCHOOL-BASED FOOD PANTRIES East End Community School, Portland Portland High School Edward Little High School, Auburn Indian Island School, Indian Island Southern Aroostook Community School, Dyer Brook Ashland District School, Ashland Whitefield Elementary School, Whitefield Eight schools in Maine will open with food pantries on school grounds that provide healthy snacks to students, compared to none a year ago. A related program that provides needy students and their families with food to eat on weekends and school vacations, called the BackPack Program, is also growing, officials say. If we target the children, we can break that cycle of poverty and hunger, said Clara McConnell Whitney, communications manager for Good Shepherd Food-Bank.

New York's Frankfootas hit the road selling hot dogs in 'The Great Food Truck Race'

Two years ago, Munoz signed up with Seamless. The commission seemed high they'd take $1 out of every $10 order but he was willing to give it a try. And at first, Munoz really liked the results. "Almost [instantly] the business started picking up," he says. "We had to hire another delivery guy." But then little things started bugging Munoz. There was a $150 a month "marketing fee" that he couldn't understand, and Seamless only paid him every 30 days, which left him chronically short of cash.

Adrian Grenier from Entourage recently tweeted that hes a fan of their franks with the works. While foes like Hawaiis Aloha Plate boys and St. Louis Tikka Takka Taco truck were fierce, the New Yorkers found their toughest competition on the road was actually each other. A food truck is a tight space for a cross-country drive, and tempers definitely flared Its one thing when you have a boss delegating what each of us has to do, says Raja, who waitressed with her besties at the Outback Steakhouse in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Its a completely different story when you have three bosses trying to tell each other what to do.

Help give kids a lifelong love for fitness

In WellKids classes, students each get a card to study, and then they can try to teach the rest of the group. Lying down in silence and practicing some deep breathing is easier after that, too. Strength Basic exercises, including wall sits, planks, push-ups, lunges and squats, might not sound all that fun.

Socially networking diet and fitness (Part three of a five part series) (Photos)

Via the Facebook social networking site, Yolanda learned about and began attending Z-GoGo classes facilitated by two of her friends. After attending her first few Z-GoGo classes, a mix of Zumba Fitness routine performed to sounds and electrifying energy of GoGo music, Yolanda was hooked and she made it a part of her regular routine. Through her Facebook social network, one step towards her Z-GoGo class turned into a giant leap when she was eventually asked to become a Z-GoGo instructor for the Awesome Fitness Group. Because Z-GoGo, one of the fastest growing fitness programs in the DC area, primarily uses social media to apply a work of mouth campaign to attract new participants, online advertisements via social media and posting flyers on sites like Facebook have become essential tools for Z-GoGo. Seeing the interest and participation in Z-GoGo classes continuously grow, Yolanda was inspired to start her own company called No Obesity Family Fitness, LLC and she also uses Facebook to get the word out about her business. She has seen how socially networking health has impacted the African American community and the increase in positive diet, fitness and motivation among the community.
