Generous Donation Enables Wartburg's Historic Chapel Upgrades Including Hearing Assistance and Telecast

MT. VERNON, NEW YORK, USA, July 27, 2018 / — Generous Donation Enables Wartburg’s Historic Chapel Upgrades Including Hearing Assistance and Telecast in Residential Facilities

Mount Vernon, NY (July 20, 2018) Wartburg, a premier senior residential and healthcare provider in lower Westchester, has recently completed upgrades to its historic chapel on its beautiful, 34-acre campus.

Wartburg’s Chapel, built in 1904, hosts ecumenical services for its residents as well as Sunday Services for United Lutheran Church. The Chapel is also the destination of worship to over 500 seniors, many of whom have hearing impairments. As a result of the upgrades, the Chapel now uses a Hearing Aid Induction Loop which allows those with hearing aids to directly pick up audio from the sound system. Headsets are also available for those individuals who do not use hearing aids and may need amplified sound.

In addition to the Hearing Aid Induction Loop, those with mobility issues in the nursing home and Rehabilitation Center are now able to view services in the comfort of their rooms through Senior TV, offered in both locations. To improve the overall sound quality in the chapel, a high definition camcorder and an audio Digital Signal Processor (DSP) was also installed. The DSP connects to the existing sound system in the Chapel to provide a much more consistent level sound input to the camera. As a result, Wartburg is now able to broadcast events, such as concerts, in the Chapel to the nursing home, Rehabilitation Center and Adult Day Services with high definition video and sound.

Pastor Carol Fryer, Senior Pastor of United Lutheran Church, Director of Wartburg Spiritual Care, said: “We are so grateful to have the ability to broadcast our Sunday services so that our residents may watch the service when they are not able to physically attend due to illness or bad weather. Plus the Hearing Loop is fabulous for anyone with hearing loss. The gifts that made this possible have added significantly to the Spiritual Care of our residents.”

These upgrades were generously funded though the benevolence of Wartburg supporters. “We are so very grateful to our donors who have made these technology upgrades possible and will enable more of our residents to benefit from worship services in our historic chapel,” said David Gentner, Wartburg President & CEO.

Meadowview Resident Ethel Clausen (pictured), said: “With the T-coil setting in my hearing aids, I can hear every word. Before I lost so much that I couldn’t get the meaning of things. It has made a world of difference! I’m so pleased that we got the T-coil.”

About Wartburg
Wartburg, located in Westchester County, NY, offers integrated, comprehensive senior residential and healthcare services. Unlike conventional retirement communities, Wartburg provides a wide range of services to both residents living on their beautiful 34-acre campus and people in their own homes. From independent, assisted living and award-winning nursing home care to inpatient/outpatient rehabilitation, home care and adult day care services, their continuing care approach has earned them a trusted reputation in Westchester. Wartburg also provides caregiver support at every stage with an array of options to find the level of care that considers the whole family. Most recently, Wartburg was named one of the "Best Nursing Homes in New York State" by U.S. News & World Report for the eighth consecutive year in 2018. Wartburg also received the 2016 Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award from the American College of Health Care Administrators and the 2015 Legacy Award from the Westchester County Chapter of the Links.

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 27, 2018 / — SRC, Gold Sponsors of this year’s UAV Technology conference taking place on 26 – 27 September 2018 in Prague, were recently interviewed by SMi Group where they provided exclusive insights into the current advancements within the field, future challenges, and the latest technology updates.

With the recent news that the US will increase their unmanned systems budget by $2.1 billion in 2019 to a total of $9.6 billion, there is a crucial need for organisations like SRC to enhance and evolve their capabilities and technology to prepare for dynamic threats.

Interview snapshot of Mr. David Bessey, Assistant Vice President for Counter-UAS development at SRC:

What is SRC Inc doing to enhance counter UAS technology?

SRC continues to evolve its capabilities to stay ahead of the enemy. Our experience in counter-IED ( has helped us understand the need to quickly respond to ever-evolving threats. By looking at the entire threat structure, SRC can incorporate new technologies to detect, track, identify and defeat emerging threats.

What technology updates have really caught SRC’s eye in the past year?

The utilization of machine learning has the ability to provide substantial performance improvements across all parts of a C-UAS system. The development of sensors that can operate on-the-move will provide the true capability to counter near-peer threats.

What are the future challenges for UAV/Counter UAS technology in supporting military operations?
Full operation while on the move and while living within the size, weight, and power (SWaP) constraints of a vehicle.
The full interview is available to download on the event website, along with the latest brochure and past attendee lists by organisation, job title, country and sponsors. For more information and to register as a delegate, please visit

Historical telephones and related items from two Verizon museum chapters will be auctioned August 4th by Bruneau & Co.

Telephone from President Dwight Eisenhower’s Newport (R.I.) summer White House residence.

The first phone/emergency call box ever installed in the Yukon Territory in Canada, circa 1900.

Original floor plank from Alexander Graham Bell’s laboratory, 29.5 inches long.

1984 Summer Olympic Games (Los Angeles) relay torch, one of only 4,500 made, with photo.

Early 20th century Stromberg & Carlson telephone operator switchboard, in an oak case.

The auction comprises an exciting and rare collection of historical telephones, photographs, maps, cables, prototypes, ephemera and more. Many are quite old.

This is an exciting sale because you get a firsthand glimpse into the early days of mass communication. How often do you get to hold the first-ever call box installed in the Yukon for gold miners?”

— Kevin Bruneau

CRANSTON, RI, UNITED STATES, July 26, 2018 / — CRANSTON, R.I. – An historical telephone auction featuring items from two regional chapters of Verizon’s Telephone Pioneers of America Museum – one the William J. Denver chapter #20 museum in Providence, R.I., the other the Excelsior Chapter #98 in Buffalo. N.Y. – will be held on Saturday, August 4th, by Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers, at 63 Fourth Avenue in Cranston, R.I.

The auction comprises an exciting and rare collection of historical telephones, photographs, maps, cables, prototypes, ephemera and more, ranging from the first phone/emergency call box ever installed in the Yukon in Canada to the telephone from President Dwight Eisenhower’s Newport, Rhode Island summer White House. In all, more than 500 lots will come up for bid.

A pre-sale auction, starting at 10 am Eastern time, will contain about 100 lots, to be sold in-house only. That will be followed immediately, at 11 am, by the main cataloged auction, with online bidding via,, and, or by downloading the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay.

“This is an exciting sale because historically you get a firsthand glimpse into the early days of mass communication,” said Bruneau & Co. company president and auctioneer Kevin Bruneau. “No matter how much you see in this business, you come across things every day that amaze. How often do you get to hold the first-ever call box installed in the Yukon for gold miners?”

The metal and wood phone, according to a museum label, was installed at Dawson, in the Yukon Territory, at the time of the Gold Rush, around the turn of the century, circa 1900. The tag reads: “Combination Telephone and Fire Alarm Box”. Made by National Telephone Co. (Chicago), the phone was finally removed from its pole at 5th and Church streets in Dawson in August 1960.

“It was a learning experience like no other,” Travis Landry, a Bruneau & Co. specialist and auctioneer, said of the auction catalog. “I felt like it could be a college course on the history of the telephone. It’s wild to think something as simple as a piece of wood could be so historically important, or that President Eisenhower had conversations on a phone, what was discussed.”

The Eisenhower phone is made from plastic and metal and marked behind the cradle “Bell System” and “Made by Western Electric”. It was used at the Newport home formerly known as the “Commandant’s Residence and Quarters Number One”. An original museum label identifies the telephone as “President Eisenhower’s Personal Telephone at the Summer White House”.

Items pertaining to Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, will include an original model of Bell and Thomas A. Watson’s first prototype phone, accompanied by original patent paperwork dated 1881; and an original floor plank from Bell’s laboratory, indicating the 29 ½ inch long wooden plank was “presented by Guthrie J. G. Nicholson on March 10, 1976.”

Other Bell-related lots will include an early example of the inventor’s butterstamp turned wooden receiver with brass connections, circa 1890, with a magnet occupying the length of the handle; and an early example of the first long distance double pole membrane receiver from the early 20th century, untested, appearing to be complete, 5 ½ inches tall, made of wood and metal.

A circa 1913 presentation nickel “candlestick” telephone, with museum label stating, “Telephone given to Clint Oliver on his retirement in 1957 by his repair gang at the Gates Circle Garage”, with a display case made by Ralph Huebel, will be sold, as will a Bell System brown color test sample desk rotary phone in good shape marked “Bell System” and “Made by Western Electric”.

Other noteworthy lots will include an early 20th century Stromberg & Carlson telephone operator switchboard, 51 ½ inches by 25 inches, in a quarter sawn Mission oak case; and a 1984 Summer Olympic Games (Los Angeles) relay torch, one of only 4,500 made, carried prior to the Games by John Cox of the Pioneers, Hamburg-Olean Council, with a photo of Cox carrying the torch.

Previews will be held on Thursday, August 2nd, from 9-5; and Friday, August 3rd, from 12 noon until 9 pm. Doors will open on auction day, August 4th, at 8 am. All times quoted are Eastern. In addition to live gallery and internet bidding, telephone and absentee bids will also be accepted.

Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers has several auctions planned for September. These include a single-owner train collection that will be sold on Saturday, September 1st; two single-owner movie poster collections that will be sold on Saturday, September 15th; and an estate auction slated for Saturday, September 22nd.

AV-Comparatives publishes 2018 enterprise IT-security test under real-world conditions

AV-Comparatives released results of their Business Main-Test Series. It is the most complete Enterprise security comparative test in the IT security industry.

INNSBRUCK, TYROL, AUSTRIA, July 24, 2018 / — Business Security Test 2018 (March – June)

AV-Comparatives publishes 2018 business IT-security test with usability reviews to assess endpoint effectiveness under real-world conditions

18 July 2018, Innsbruck, Austria – The independent security software tester AV-Comparatives released the half year results of their Business Main-Test Series. It is the most complete Enterprise IT security comparative test in the endpoint security industry.

The real-world effectiveness of an endpoint protection IT security solution is not solely based on the results of Av-Comparatives' award-winning test framework, but also includes a review on the ease of use of these market leaders brand business security solutions. This multi aspect assessment makes AV-Comparatives Business Main-Test Series the most comprehensive endpoint security report for small to large business organizations.

Download the complete 72-page PDF report for free


Most comprehensive Business IT-Security Test

We are pleased to announce the publication of the half-year report of our Business Main-Test Series. This business test assesses endpoint protection on multiple aspects. AV security software is available for all sizes and types of business. Effectiveness of endpoint security should also be evaluated in the context of the organization it is applied in. What fits well at the smaller end of the SME (small to medium enterprise) market is probably not going to be quite so appropriate to larger corporations.

To provide practical and useful information to security specialists, IT-managers and business owners, AV-Comparatives assesses business security products on multiple aspects:

Real-World Protection
This test mimics the dangers an end-user encounters in every day conditions. This award winning dynamic test allows to fully test all protection mechanisms of an AV-solution during all stages of a malware intrusion scenario. This test includes a false positives test on (wrongly blocked) domains as well as (wrongly blocked) downloaded files.

Malware Protection
AV-products are assessed on their ability to protect a system against infection by malicious files before, during or after execution. This test includes a false positives test on common business software. The effectiveness of endpoint protection is critically influenced by both malware infections and false positives, because both disrupt business operations.

Performance Impact
False positives and performance impact are two important factors determining end user acceptance of security products. When users are not hindered they have no incentives to evade company security policies, making these aspects an indirect success factor.

Product Reviews
The individual reviews provide insights in the ease of use and central management. Ease of use includes installation & deployment, daily use and remediation & outbreak containment. With the increasing importance of BYO (bring your own) the ease of which various sorts of endpoint devices can be protected is an important consideration for most organizations.

AV-Comparatives Approved Business Product Award

As in previous years, we are giving our “Approved Business Product” award to qualifying products. As we are now conducting two tests of business products per year, separate awards will be given to qualifying products in July (for March-June tests), and December (for August-November tests) for July, and one for December.

We congratulate the 16 vendors who are participating in the Business Main-Test Series for having their business endpoint protection products publicly tested by an independent lab, showing their commitment to improving their products, being transparent to their customers and having confidence in their product quality. Read our report to see which products were awarded.

Imprivata extends multi-factor authentication to handheld devices with the launch of Mobile Device Access solution

New solution gives clinicians fast, secure and auditable access to shared mobile devices and applications with just the tap of a badge

Imprivata Mobile Device Access enables healthcare organisations to unlock the full potential of their investment in clinical mobile devices and applications.”

— Adam Bangle, VP International Sales, Imprivata

LONDON, UK, July 24, 2018 / — Imprivata® the healthcare IT security company, today introduced Imprivata Mobile Device Access™ which enables fast, secure access to clinical mobile devices and applications. The new solution extends the capabilities of Imprivata OneSign® and the Imprivata identity and access management platform enabling fast, secure access to shared mobile devices and applications with the tap of a proximity badge. As a result, organisations can unlock the full potential of these devices and applications ensuring a fast, efficient workflow for clinicians and care givers whilst maintaining security and auditability.

Delivering 21st century healthcare while safe-guarding sensitive patient records with ever-decreasing budgets is a real challenge for healthcare professionals. Hospitals are increasingly turning to mobile technology to automate and streamline time consuming manual processes. However, the workflows to access shared mobile devices and applications can be frustratingly cumbersome and become a barrier to usage. If access is frustrating and challenging, staff could seek insecure workarounds which then creates risk in information governance, potential GDPR data breaches, and lead to inaccurate data being recorded for auditing.

Imprivata Mobile Device Access supports the mobility of clinical staff and brings technology to the bedside by improving usability of shared clinical mobile devices and applications. The solution removes the need for repetitive manual logins and complex passwords typed on small mobile keyboards, providing fast, secure, access and replacing the need for password entry with the simple tap of a badge, then single sign-on into applications. It Increases the security of mobile devices and applications by requiring strong authentication to access the device. As a result, organisations can unlock the full potential of shared devices and applications by ensuring a fast, efficient workflow for clinicians while maintaining (and improving) security and auditability.

Imprivata MDA integrates seamlessly with Imprivata OneSign, healthcare’s leading enterprise SSO and virtual desktop access platform, leveraging the same core infrastructure. This allows organisations to set authentication policies for all workflows from a single platform which reduces TCO and streamlines reporting.

Adam Bangle, VP International Sales at Imprivata explains; “The healthcare ecosystem is evolving, and mobile devices are increasingly becoming prevalent in patient care. Imprivata Mobile Device Access enables healthcare organisations to unlock the full potential of their investment in clinical mobile devices and applications. The solution increases usability and removes barriers to adoption whilst improving security by requiring strong authentication to access mobile devices. The result is happier users embracing the technology and organisations realising full utilisation of their investment in elevating patient care.”

BRISTOL, BRISTOL, BIRLEşIK KRALLıK, July 24, 2018 / — July 23, 2018, Bristol, the United Kingdom Rewire Security, one of the leading GPS Tracking systems suppliers in the UK, announces a major update to its GPS Tracking software. GPSLive allows individuals and small businesses to keep an eye on their vehicles and assets 24/7. GPSLive can be used for viewing the real-time location of people, assets and vehicles using nothing but a PC, smartphone or a tablet.

The GPSLive software update includes new features such as; trip log, detailed usage reports, alerts, and a new, user-friendly interface. The latest Trip Log feature allows businesses to identify the mileage of their drivers and tag them between Business and Personal usage, thus creating a complete record of all their tax-deductible and reimbursable mileage. The new interface makes it easy to set up alarms for events such as; speeding, idling and harsh braking. Alarms enable businesses to identify their drivers with risky driving habits and take necessary precautions.

“For years we have been trying to assist individuals and businesses with improving the security of their vehicles, but, GPS Tracking is not all about security. It’s about gaining real-time visibility into your vehicle and assets. Our engineers have been working for over six months on the latest software update,” said Bilen Saribardak, Rewire Security’s Managing Director. “We have improved the usage and functionality of Alarms and Reports to provide small and medium businesses with a tool for easily figuring out the real-time location and previously taken routes by the drivers in their fleet. The latest addition to our software: Trip Log, makes it easier to distinguish between business and private usage of the company vehicles to allow businesses to identify their tax-deductible mileage easily. We are committed to continuously improving the performance and user experience of GPSLive.”

Alarms are now much easier to set-up, and they can be used to notify you instantly by an email, SMS or push notification on your smartphone. The new GPSLive alarm – Speed Violation – compares your vehicle’s speed with the national speed limit of the road it’s traveling and notifies you in case of a speed violation. Alarms can be set for; geo-fence zone in&out, crash detection, speeding, idling, harsh braking, and for any parameter received from the input devices that can be attached to the engine, doors, and windows as well as any other electronic sensor on the vehicle. The geo-fence feature is particularly helpful for identifying the time-sheet of a business. Geo-fences are virtual geographic boundaries that can be drawn on the GPSLive map. GPSLive will notify you in case one of your vehicles enters or leaves the geo-fence zone.

Rewire Security offers a wide range of telematics and GPS Tracking devices for locating kids, Alzheimer’s patients, overseas cargos, bikes, motorcycles as well as cars, vans, and trucks. Rewire Security’s tracking devices are paired with GPSLive before delivery for convenience and ease of use. Not only will GPSLive help individuals locate their cars, but it will also allow business managers to detect issues regarding their fleet and take necessary actions quickly. GPSLive reduces the workload on management by reducing paperwork and improves overall profitability by enabling managers to view the driver of the car, the duration of the vehicle use, the amount of fuel spent and which car was used for the trip throughout the day.

GPSLive is an advanced GPS Tracking software; it’s an ideal tool for fleet managers who want to be in control of their business and streamline their operations. Annual subscription for GPSLive costs only £20, and it includes one-year GPSLive web software and mobile app usage.
