Inmedix to present at the Keiretsu Forum Bay Area Investor Capital Expo on November 21, 2019.

Andrew J. Holman, MD, Inmedix CEO & Co-founder, to highlight immuno-autonomic diagnostics.

NORMANDY PARK, WA, USA, November 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Inmedix, the leader in next-generation heart rate variability (HRV) applications as an informative diagnostic tool in autoimmune disease, today announced that CEO & Co-founder, Andrew J. Holman, MD, will showcase Inmedix at the Investor Capital Expo in San Francisco.

The Keiretsu Forum is the world’s largest angel investor network with over 3000 accredited angel investors throughout 53 chapters spanning 4 continents. Membership includes angel investors, venture capitalists, corporate/institutional investors and serial entrepreneurs that provide early stage seed capital to high-quality, diverse investment opportunities.

The Investor Capital Expo, the premier gathering of the angel capital community, will be held at Julia Morgan Ballroom, 465 California St., San Francisco, CA from 8 am to 5 pm on November 21, 2019. More information can be found at www.Keiretsuforum.com.

Immuno-autonomics is the interface between stress, modulated within the brain by the autonomic nervous system (ANS), and the immune system. In autoimmune disease, the immune system attacks healthy tissues for reasons which remain unclear. Therapy is directed with various immunosuppressive strategies to reduce this inappropriate attack and potential destruction of joints, skin, kidney, brain, etc. (depending on the specific autoimmune disease.)
Fundamentally, ANS stress can drive an autoimmune disease to untreatable excess. Understanding how the immune system is modulated by ANS stress in the brain may offer an important new pathway for patients and clinicians combating these diseases.

“Keiretsu Forum has been a leader in nurturing emerging medtech and biotech companies for many years,” says Andrew J. Holman, MD, rheumatologist and Inmedix CEO. “As an investment member of the Keiretsu Forum Pacific Northwest Chapter as well as Inmedix CEO, I am particularly proud to have an opportunity to showcase our innovation to Bay Area investors at this signature event.”

ACA REPEAL WOULD DEVASTATE JOBS NUMBERS, NEGATING TRUMP BIGGEST TALKING POINT: Robert Weiner &August Clarke–AZ Republic

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ACA Biggest Job Creator of last decade according to BLS; 20 million new recipients and 100 million+ with more benefits all causing millions of new jobs. Op-ed In Arizona Republic, article ranked #1 in country by OpEdNews

Robert Weiner, a former Clinton and Bush White House spokesman and Chief of Staff of the House Aging Committee and its Health Subcommittee, and Zach Filtz, senior policy analyst for Robert Weiner Associates and Solutions for Change, just published an op-ed in the Arizona Republic Trump will lose the “jobs and economy growth" talking point if successful at killing Obamacare, as the ACA is the #1 jobs creator because of services to 30 million new recipients and more than 100 million with benefits, according to BLS. In addition, the Arizona Senate seat is a very important one, especially in light of late Sen. John McCain’s ACA-saving role, saving the “skinny repeal” with his dramatic “thumbs down.” The oped was ranked H1– #1 in the country– by OpEdNews.

Weiner and Filtz begin, “If Trump kills or diminishes the ACA, as he's trying to do, he'll lose his best talking point, national jobs growth. Despite ACA opponents' claims of "job killing" by the bill, the facts show that the 30 million new recipients and expanded benefits for 100+ million have generated exactly the opposite, big jobs increases — and that's just common sense.”

They profess, “With repeal, In Arizona, 160,456 citizens would drop off of the Marketplace health plan they are on. Arizona’s employment rate would drop by 1.6%, and 41,982 Arizona jobs would be lost alone, according to the Economic Policy Institute. Nationally, 1,175,524 people would lose their jobs if the ACA were voided.”

They reinforce, “For everyone and especially Arizonans, an important item at stake for ACA’s future is the 2020 special election for Senate seat that Republican Martha McSally currently occupies. That seat was once held by John McCain, who gave his party-defying “thumbs down” to repealing and replacing the ACA on July 28, 2017. That seat now sees Martha McSally running against Democrat Mark Kelly.”

They contend, “Kelly’s website speaks of supporting the existing ACA while introducing a public health option for all Arizonans.”

They assert, “But McSally has a nuanced position on the ACA. A campaign ad says she is "leading the fight to cover pre-existing conditions." She has indeed offered helpful amendments to Republican-led replacement bills that moved the ball on their pre-existing conditions language. But as a House member in 2015 and 2017, she voted to repeal and replace the ACA with a "skinny repeal." According to PolitiFact Arizona, the Republican “skinny repeal” bills “raised premiums.” Because McSally ultimately voted with her party, PolitiFact rated her claim ‘mostly false.’”

They continue, “Kelly, on the other hand, speaks about ending threats keeping coverage for the 400,000 Arizonans receiving insurance through Medicaid expansion.”

They emphasize, “Every state plus D.C. would see job losses if the ACA were repealed. Thirty states would see increases of statewide unemployment rates of around 1%. The states that would be hit the hardest, with effects of up to 4%, are Montana, Rhode Island, Oregon, New Jersey, West Virginia, Kentucky, Arizona, and New Mexico.”

They declare, “The 30 million new health insurance recipients, plus 100 million covered people with pre-existing conditions, have created the new jobs and are a reason the U.S. now has a 50-year-low 3.5% unemployment rate. Incidentally, the national unemployment rate for all workers at the height of the recession in March 2010, as the ACA became law, was 9.7%.”

They proclaim, “The Bureau of Labor Statistics national unemployment rate for the health care services industry is just 2.4%. In 2010, it was more than double that, 5%."

They assert, “In March 2017, Goldman Sachs found that a “substantial decline in insurance coverage would also likely be associated with a drag on health care employment and consumption.” In other words, the fewer insured there are, the fewer workers have jobs. The BLS calculated that there were 16,793,100 health care employees in March 2010, the month that President Obama signed the ACA. As of Sept. 2019, there are 20,576,200 health employees.”

They profess, “A decade ago, there were 2.4 million more workers in retail than health care. In 2017, health care surpassed both retail and manufacturing, according to the BLS. There will be 3.4 million more health care services jobs by 2028. Health care services has grown to be the largest sector of the U.S. labor force.”

They elaborate, “Arizona is among twenty states with GOP-controlled governors or attorneys general. A Texas ruling, Texas v. United States, with support from the Republican Party, is headed for the Supreme Court via the Fifth Court of Appeals. This ruling would cancel the coverage for all who receive benefits from it, as would seriously jeopardize all of the jobs that have been created by it.”

They conclude, “President Trump markets his presidency as a catalyst for job generation, but if the Texas case or Congress moves against the ACA, jobs and the economy will spiral downward. Senator John McCain before his death gave the famous thumbs down that saved the ACA from "skinny repeal" by one vote. The Arizona Senate race matters.”

Cato Networks Launches Global Partner Program with Accelerated ROI

Cato Cloud PoP Map

Cato Cloud 50+ Points of Presence (PoPs) Worldwide

Partner Certificate Image

Cato training and certification are free, and available online and on-demand.

Partner Portal Screenshot

Cato’s new partner portal is the single interface used for training, certifications, deal-registration, lead-generation activities, and much more.

First partner program to leverage secure access service edge (SASE) platform for instant portfolio expansion. Delivers positive ROI on first deal.

We’ve analyzed what works with partner programs – and what doesn’t. It’s because of their efforts and our unique platform that we’ve seen an 80% win ratio post PoC.”

—  Alon Alter, Chief Revenue Officer at Cato Networks

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, November 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —  Cato Networks, provider of the world’s first SASE platform, announced today the Cato Partner Program, the first channel program with Accelerated Return on Investment (ROI). Recognizing the frustrations with traditional channel programs, the Cato Partner Program has been designed from the ground up to improve the channel experience with easy onboarding, strong margin opportunities, and expanded revenue streams from Cato’s unique secure access service edge (SASE) platform. (To learn more about SASE, join this webinar with Gartner analyst Neil MacDonald and Cato CMO Yishay Yovel.)

“Since its inception Cato has focused on making networking simpler. But simplicity isn’t just about our service; it’s also about how we partner,” says Shlomo Kramer, CEO and co-founder of Cato Networks. “We enable partners to profit from digital transformation no matter the opportunity whether its SD-WAN as an MPLS replacement, secure branch Internet access, optimized global connectivity, facilitating cloud adoption, or mobile access.”

“Working with Cato allows our clients to gain technical, operational and financial efficiencies,” says Eric Ludwig, specialist with the aggregation, infrastructure and managed services team at CDW Corporation, a leading multi-brand technology solutions provider. “Our clients can now leverage existing contracts with WAN suppliers while building a strategic roadmap to consolidation.”

STRONG MARGIN OPPORTUNITIES AND EASY ADOPTION

Unlike traditional channel programs, Cato has structured its business model so partners can maximize profitability and shorten their sales cycles. Cato’s list price is competitive and built to win deals without extensive discounts, making profitability more predictable. No longer do vendors have to approve discounts on every deal, enabling partners to progress deals independently. All of which is guaranteed through easy deal registration and proper deal protection.

“With Cato we’ve been able to benefit from the disruptive cloud business,” says Yoji Ota, Manager at Macnica Networks Corporation, a global technology value-added distributor. “Offering a subscription service has made forecasting much, much easier. We’ve been able to accumulate reoccurring sales revenue that will lead to stable profits for years to come.”

The program is also simple to understand, consisting of only two partner tiers. For either tier, adopting Cato requires no capital investment. Training and certification are free, and available online and on-demand. For qualified partners, Cato offers free demo licenses, free equipment, and marketing development funds (MDF) to support partners’ lead-generation efforts.

“We’ve analyzed what works with partner programs – and what doesn’t,” says Alon Alter, Chief Revenue Officer at Cato Networks. “We believe in supporting our partners but at the same time giving them maximum independence. It’s because of their efforts and our unique platform that we’ve seen an 80% win ratio post proof of concept (PoC).”

EXPANDING REVENUE STREAMS BY CAPITALIZING ON REVOLUTIONARY SASE PLATFORM

With Cato’s world-first SASE platform, partners can instantly profit from the disruption of the $60 billion managed network service market. First defined in Gartner's Hype Cycle for Enterprise Networking, 2019, SASE converges many disparate network and network-security capabilities including SD-WAN, SWG, CASB, SDP/ZTNA, DNS protection, and FWaaS onto a global, cloud-native architecture.

Partnering with Cato equips partners with a broad portfolio of revenue-generating networking and security services. There’s none of the complexity and overhead of learning, integrating, and managing multiple networking and security point-solutions.

“Reselling Cato allows us to strengthen our relationship with our customers,” says Bill Hooper, Chief Operating Officer at Realcom Solutions, a provider of network consulting and management services. “As they go through their digital transformation, we’re able to provide more and more solutions to meet their evolving needs.”

“Partnering with Cato opened new options for us to grow our business. It has allowed us to take a differentiated proposition to the channel. With digital transformation the new security and networking needs are perfectly addressed by the SASE approach,” says Sean Remnant, chief security officer at Ignition Technology, a next generation value-added distributor.

CATO PARTNER PORTAL EARNS HIGH PRAISE FROM CHANNEL PARTNERS

As part of the partner program, Cato has redesigned the Cato Partner Portal. The portal brings a partner from “registration to graduation.” Onboarding is structured and simple. Training sessions are recorded by Cato experts specifically targeting channel enablement. Deal registration and pipeline management are done directly from the portal.

“The process of onboarding to become a Cato certified partner was rapid and a natural fit,” says Tim Sullivan, CEO of Coevolve, a leading global provider of integrated SD-WAN solutions and cloud networking services. “The market for integrated network and security capabilities has evolved rapidly for multinational enterprise. Being able to easily connect all of their locations and roaming users to applications bypassing Internet congestion is a real game changer.”

“This new portal definitely delivers on all elements we need for smooth partner enablement, marketing support, and deal management,” says Adam Davison, sales and marketing director at Cloud Distribution, a next generation value-added distributor.

“The sales training is well structured and give a whole picture of how Cato network works and how it can help customers,” says Riccardo Roasio, Solution Engineers Manager, at CriticalCase, a high-availability cloud service provider.

CRA & IRS Change Tax Rules As It Pertains To Cellphone Expenses For Employers & Employees

Forbes Technology Council Features mobilityView – Four Tips To Help Businesses Keep Effective Mobile Use Records Before Tax Time (CRA & IRS)

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, November 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Four Tips To Help Businesses Keep Effective Mobile Use Records Before Tax Time
Forbes Technology Council

The tax landscape in the business sector frequently changes in North America, and many companies are completely oblivious to the announced changes and the impact of these changes. Changes may be prompted in part because governments at all levels (including municipalities and counties and federal governments) are struggling with massive budget deficits and debts. As an example of important tax regulations, in the United States and in Canada, businesses need to be aware of the tax code as it pertains to the tax treatment and deductibility of a cellphone, from corporate taxes in the U.S. and from the employee taxable benefit perspective in Canada.

The IRS in the U.S. is taking a slightly different approach from Canada in that it is focusing on companies rather than individuals and emphasizes that the company must be tax compliant. This could result in a more efficient tax collection process. In general, you can deduct only the business portion of any business expense, including business use of your home or car and anything else you may use for business. Therefore, it's helpful to require employees to maintain a "mileage book" for the car and cellphone, as well as details about your wireless subscription plan, so that you can present it to the IRS. To remain compliant with the IRS's cellphone policy, you should document business and personal usage for every call, text message and packet of data. A company can't deduct 100% of the cellphone from corporate taxes. Only the documented and substantiated business portion of the cellphone may be deducted.

For many companies in Canada and the U.S., the first inkling of a problem is when a company is audited or employees are suddenly faced with a surprisingly large tax demand. Ultimately an employee is responsible for the accuracy of their tax filing, but all typically trust their employers to ensure that their tax forms are properly filled out. It turns out many Canadian and U.S. corporations I've worked with are unaware of the tax code around cellphones. This could open the door to lawsuits like the BYOD one in California. Employees may demand that their employers reimburse them for their phone use.

Like the IRS's policy, the Canada Revenue Association's (CRA) policy for employers doesn't say not to worry about cellphones, either: The onus is on employers to provide documentation about the percentage of the device usage attributed to work, as well as the fair market value (FMV) of the device. The CRA states explicitly that "if part of the use of the cell phone or Internet service is personal, you have to include the value of the personal use in your employee's income as a taxable benefit. The value of the benefit is based on the FMV of the service, minus any amounts your employee reimburses you." The CRA is being unambiguously clear: At a minimum, the CRA expects employers to calculate the personal usage of cellphones and the associated FMV.

The CRA also says, “You, as the employer, are responsible for determining the percentage of employment use and the FMV. You have to be prepared to justify your position if we ask you to do so.”

The Canadian government is also focusing on the HST (the Canadian national sales tax) portion of operating expenses. HST is relevant for employers and their HST input tax credit (ITC). Only the percentage use of the HST that is associated with commercial (business) purposes may be claimed.

As the CEO of a company that offers a mobile cost management solution, I'm familiar with what it takes to navigate these requirements. Here are some tips for keeping your records up to date:

• Ask your employees to keep a log of business usage (calls, text messages and data). Think of smartphone usage like car mileage for a car that is used for business purposes; you need to keep a log.

• Start to keep historical records. In the U.S., authorities can ask to go back several years in an audit situation.

• Because a significant portion of smartphone expenses can come from data, find a way to indicate what usage is business versus personal. This cannot typically be done manually from your wireless bill for data, as many wireless service providers do not provide this level of detail, but you can use your wireless bill to track voice calls and text messages. To track your data usage, either use a data tracker app or use the app that comes with iOS or Android to view your data consumption per app. Just remember to note the consumption of the app before you use it for work purposes and then note your consumption after use. The difference will give you your business use.

• Find a mobile cost management solution for individual devices or corporate device fleets that can automatically work out the business portion of all your calls, text messages, wireless data and Wi-Fi usage. Today, many businesses use Telephony Expense Management (TEM) solutions such as vCom's and Valicom's and mobile cost management solutions such as my company's.

I know many businesses that have been speaking to wireless service providers for a solution to this problem, but no solution has been forthcoming.

California Jury Rejects Abuse Claim Against USA Swimming

A California jury today ruled in favor of USA Swimming in a lawsuit that alleged sexual abuse by a coach of a local swim club.

USA Swimming has worked very hard to develop and institute a comprehensive program to protect its swimmers”

— William Kronenberg, Attorney for USA Swimming

STOCKTON, CALIFORNIA, USA, November 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A California jury today ruled in favor of USA Swimming in a lawsuit brought by a swimmer who had alleged sexual abuse by a coach of a local Stockton swim club.

The jury of 8 women and 4 men deliberated less than 3 hours before issuing a verdict finding that USA Swimming did not fall below the standard of care, and was not responsible for the conduct of a coach employed by the former Stockton Swim Club.

USA Swimming’s attorney, William Kronenberg, of the Oakland based civil litigation law firm, Kronenberg Law, PC, said the jury’s decision was an important vindication of the organization’s athlete protection program.

“USA Swimming has worked very hard to develop and institute a comprehensive program to protect its swimmers,” said Kronenberg, and this case is the first time a jury was asked to determine whether it met the standard of care for a youth serving organization. The speedy affirmation by the Stockton jury should be welcome news to the thousands of swimmers at the more than 3,200 member clubs throughout the U.S.

According to Kronenberg, “The jury was presented with the entire athlete protection program, from the Code of Conduct, mandatory screening and training of coaches, to educational models for parents and swimmers along with expert testimony which found it met or exceeded the standards necessary for a safe environment.” While no youth serving organization can ever be 100% safe, the jury conclusively found that USA’s program was properly designed, implemented and staffed.

The trial has made headlines following the release of multiple news stories by the swimmer’s attorney, including releasing the deposition transcript of USA Swimming CEO Tim Hinchey, who was hired in July 2017. The swimmer’s attorney has publicly commented on the CEO’s lack of background or training in the prevention of sexual abuse, both prior to and even after the jury rejected those claims.

Kronenberg said that the jury saw right through the argument that a CEO of a national organization should have specialized knowledge about abuse prevention.

“Preventing sexual abuse is a specialized field that requires both extensive education, training and experience, much like that received by members of Child Protective Services, and USA Swimming has a department staffed with equally well trained personnel. Mr. Hinchey does not have that background or training, he is the CEO, not the head of that department,” Kronenberg said.

According to Kronenberg, “The criticism of Mr. Hinchey by opposing counsel is unfair and misguided, but some attorneys prefer trying a case in the media, instead of listening to the message sent by the jury with its verdict.”

DrugTestingCourses.com Launches New Course on Delaware Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Laws

DrugTestingCourses.com

DrugTestingCourses.com

Delaware Drug and Alcohol Workplace Testing Laws Now Available at DrugTestingCourses.com

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — DrugTestingCourses.com, an online training provider operated by Easler Education Inc., announced today that it has launched a new state law course designed to educate individuals and private employers on the relevant workplace drug and alcohol testing laws in the State of Delaware.

The course, which is entitled “Delaware Workplace Drug & Alcohol Testing Laws Training," is available for enrollment on DrugTestingCourses.com and all of its e-commerce affiliate reselling partner sites immediately.

Andrew Easler, the co-founder of Easler Education Inc, indicates that “particular changes to society’s attitudes regarding Medical Marijuana have led to a massive increase in legislative changes to workplace testing laws across the country. We decided to become a source of reliable information about these changes as they approach on the horizon so that employers can make informed decisions about changes to their policy and so that employees can avoid unwittingly violating their employer’s policies.”

The new course provides private employers and interested employees in Delaware a summary of the current state law as it relates to drug and alcohol testing. The course has been designed for the benefit of both legal and non-legal professionals. In an effort to make this kind of information accessible to non-lawyers, the course is designed to avoid legalese whenever possible and to explain legal terminology when the use of the term is unavoidable.

This course will cover essential topics such as: which type of testing is allowed in Delaware, the benefits and drawbacks of implementing a testing policy including relevant insurance discounts, if applicable, and how to qualify, some of the observed dangers and pitfalls other employers have encountered through relevant case law, and the current status of state marijuana laws and their effects on the implementation of workplace testing programs.

Medical Marijuana became legal in Delaware in 2016, and many employers and employees have found themselves on the wrong side of the statute. Employers have been sued for wrongful termination, and employees have been fired for what they believed to be lawful activity under the Delaware Medical Marijuana Act. The course is expected to benefit a wide range of employers and employees, including, but not limited to:

-Business Owners
-Human Resource Professionals
-Substance Abuse Professionals
-Addiction Counselors
-Safety Officers
-Fleet Supervisors
-Site Supervisors
-Compliance Officers
-Employees of Private Businesses
-Corporate Counsel
-Employment Attorneys
-Compliance Consultants
-Other Workplace Testing Stakeholders
