Non Profit Launches Business Pandemic Preparedness System

Press Conference June 1st, 2021, 11:00 am EST; the world needs pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and universal safe business practices.

We have to change the narrative. We need to take the politics out of our governance. We need to come together as a community if we are to be successful.”

— Steve Anderson

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over the past year, SmALL businesses have felt helpless, hopeless, unsupported, and confused. Witnessing the pain and challenges felt and faced by honest, hardworking people in our communities, it became very clear we MUST take action. This sparked the inception of the organization called Social Distance Management (SDM).

Edward Henry Company (EHCO) has made the decision to give away all licensing rights and intellectual property of SDM, which includes Social Distance Advisory (SDA), Social Distance Compliance (SDC) systems, and research to SmALL Business is Essential (SBE).

SDM believes that all businesses need universal compliance measures to operate safely during a pandemic and other unprecedented times. By having access to these practical systems, SBE will have the resources it needs to develop the support for all businesses. ALL businesses are essential, and business continuity is the focus. Any opportunities managed from these systems will help all businesses secure and implement adequate steps to stay open, thrive, and have their voices heard.

The Journey of Social Distance Management

In March of 2020, EHCO started SDM with a mission to stand by businesses. Two months later, on May 11, 2020, with extensive research, collaboration and data collection, they released their first version of universal compliance standards.

Under SDM, sub-resources, including SDA and SDC systems, were established to display universal compliance guidelines and assess the threat levels in specific areas to protect the population. The idea to start SDM came from the utmost care about people and businesses, not from a political approach. Universal health measures and the life of our economy are not two isolated conversations. It is ONE conversation.

To contribute to the information gathered, in July of 2020, a Research Internship was formed to discover and outline details on various businesses in Canada and the United States. The outcome of the research included details which contributed to SDC, such as further development of safety protocols, requirements for operation, compliance measures, capacity limits, and PPE requirements. SDM used the data collection to create additional tools, such as self-assessment audits that provide a checklist for what businesses need to stay compliant and operate safely.

Taking its cue from other systems such as ISO, Homeland Security, The World Health Organization, and research from John Hopkins University, SDM developed its Advisory system. This system was developed with the intent to assist businesses and communities in preparing for crises and mitigating restrictions. “There needs to be accountability to the decisions that are being made that affect our small businesses,” said President of EHCO, Edward Henry.

The Advisory system narrows in on the WHO’s Pandemic Phases and the Homeland Security system and uses five levels of risk and threat: low, moderate, substantial, severe, and critical. The colors associated include green, blue, yellow, orange, and red. Each phase clearly defines which business practices, products, and services are considered essential and non-essential and the types of businesses permitted to open during each phase. The Advisory system is currently in the process of implementing data from John Hopkins University, along with data collected by other reputable models.

Despite the aforementioned systems, resources, and extensive research to support our findings, ambiguous guidelines still remain. Therefore, businesses are left without genuine reasons as to why they cannot safely reopen and recover.

A Multi-faceted Problem Requires Innovative Solutions

Stand By SmALL Businesses and Our Communities

SmALL Business is Essential

After spending some time in the development phase, SDM ventured out and sought support from government officials and local politicians. After COUNTLESS meetings and constantly being redirected elsewhere, it was time to take drastic action. Edward Henry states, “Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.” This year has been about a lot of the wrong things, and in the beginning, SDM was seen as a profit-making opportunity, and taking advantage of a terrible situation. The lack of change cannot continue. Coming together as a collective unit is essential.

For sustainable change to happen, SDM’s resources need to be placed in the right hands. They need to be placed with an organization that isn’t narrow minded, but bilateral with its thinking so sectors, such as health and business can come together. SBE is a not-for-profit association that operates based on three core pillars: pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and safe business practices. SBE aims to collectively arm small businesses with the support, protection, and resources needed to operate safely while envisioning economic recovery and stability through business unity.

This pandemic is not just a small business problem; it’s a world problem. The government’s attempt to segregate businesses into non-essential and essential classifications created ambiguity. This ambiguity initiated the thought that, not some, but ALL businesses are essential. As EHCO releases all of its SDM systems, traffic, assessment, and auditing models to SBE, a new leadership position begins. SBE’s goals encompass the severity of the issue at hand, which is why there is no better person for the job than Steve Anderson. As a Social Entrepreneur, Olympic Gold Medal Coach, and Community Champion, Anderson takes over as President of the not-for-profit association SBE. Edward Henry states, “My choice to recruit Steve Anderson was because of his character, coaching background, competitive nature to overcome challenges, and his experience with a multi-faceted range of individuals.” Speaking to Anderson’s character, he doesn’t make excuses. Steve is a good man, and SBE needs his character to bring everyone together.

Along with Anderson’s motivating character, he is the first African American to coach an Olympic team in indoor or beach volleyball and the first to win an Olympic Gold Medal in either practice. Anderson is highly committed to being the driving force behind SBE to support ALL businesses. He, along with the efforts of SBE, will pave the way towards a better normal.

Our current actions reflect our future results. If we don’t continue putting in effort and showing our care for our businesses, we will continue losing pieces of our community and, in turn, our economy. Small businesses have experienced unfair measures and restrictions, putting them at risk for permanent closure. Continuous lockdowns are not a solution. “This current pandemic has cost over $20 trillion because we were not prepared,” said Edward Henry. The definition of insanity is to perform the same actions and expect different results. “We will do this over again if we don’t start changing the way we do things,” he added. The focus needs to be on Social Distance Compliance and universal protocols to preserve business continuity. If we want an improved normal, we need to stand by SmALL businesses and our communities. There is no better time than now to help businesses transition from lockdowns and longer than expected restrictions.

The 42nd Annual Telly Awards. Credit: The Telly Awards

Video Spots Explain the Benefits of Clean and Unlimited Space-Based Solar Power to Our Planet

We’re thrilled to have won this award and hope to continue to spread the word about the importance of the National Space Society’s work towards a better life for everyone on our planet.”

— Rod Pyle, Editor-in-Chief, Ad Astra Magazine

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, May 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The National Space Society announced today its “Dear Earth” campaign for space solar power has been named in the Best of Social Media category in the 42nd Annual Telly Awards. The Telly Awards honor excellence in video and television across all venues and are judged by industry leaders from broadcast television, streaming networks, top production companies and other venues, including Netflix, Dow Jones, Complex Networks, A&E Networks, Hearst Media, Nickelodeon, ESPN Films, RYOT, Partizan and Vimeo.

The “Dear Earth” campaign, voiced by Samantha Clark, highlights the ways in which solar power generated in orbit and beamed to Earth can provide limitless, clean energy that will be affordable and drastically lessen our dependence on fossil fuels. In contrast to ground-based solar panels, orbital power stations can operate 24 hours per day all year long.

“This campaign is part of a series of video presentations the National Space Society is creating about the benefits of developing space,” said Rod Pyle, the producer/director of the spots and Editor-in-Chief of the society’s quarterly print magazine, Ad Astra. “We’re thrilled to have won this award and hope to continue to spread the word about the importance of the NSS’s work.”

Anita Gale, the CEO of the NSS, added, “We at the NSS feel it is very important to bring the broader public into what has long been an insufficiently publicized conversation—the importance of space to everyone on Earth. This is not just about exploring planets with robots and sending astronauts to the Moon—this aspect of space development will go a long way toward restoring our own planet’s environment and reducing the impact of greenhouse gasses on our atmosphere.”

Last year, The Telly Awards attracted more than 12,000 entries from top video content producers including Adobe, Adult Swim, the BBC, Condé Nast, J. Paul Getty Museum, PBS, Playstation, RadicalMedia, T Brand Studio, Ogilvy & Mather and The Walt Disney Company. The full list of the 42nd Annual Telly Awards winners can be found at www.tellyawards.com/winners.

The National Space Society was founded in 1987 via a merger of the National Space Institute, founded to promote citizen support for the American space program, and the L5 Society, based on the work of space settlement pioneer Gerard K. O’Neill. The NSS is the preeminent citizen's voice on space exploration, development, and settlement. For more information go to space.nss.org.

SmALL Business is Essential Launches Universal Pandemic Preparedness System

The colours associated include green, blue, yellow, orange, and red. Each phase clearly defines which business practices, products, and services are considered essential and non-essential and the types of businesses permitted to open during each phase. Our Advisory system is currently in the process of implementing data from John Hopkins University, along with data collected by other reputable models.

Despite the aforementioned systems, resources, and much research to support our findings, ambiguous guidelines still remain. Therefore, businesses are left without genuine reasons as to why they cannot safely reopen and recover.

A Multi-faceted Problem Requires Innovative Solutions

Stand By SmALL Businesses and Our Communities

SmALL Business is Essential

After spending some time in the development phase, SDM ventured out and sought support from government officials and local politicians. After COUNTLESS meetings and constantly being redirected elsewhere, it was time to take drastic action. Edward Henry states, “Limited power is not an excuse for doing the right thing.” This year has been about a lot of the wrong things, and in the beginning, SDM was seen as a profit-making opportunity during a terrible situation. The lack of change cannot continue. Coming together as a collective unit is essential.

For sustainable change to happen, SDM’s resources need to be placed in the right hands. They need to be placed with an organization that isn’t narrow minded, but bilateral with its thinking so sectors, such as health and business can come together. SBE is a not-for-profit association that operates based on three core pillars: pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and safe business practices. SBE aims to collectively arm small businesses with the support, protection, and resources needed to operate safely while envisioning economic recovery and stability through business unity.

This pandemic is not just a small business problem; it’s a world problem. The government’s attempt to segregate businesses into non-essential and essential classifications created ambiguity. This ambiguity initiated the thought that, no, ALL businesses are essential. As EHCO releases all of its SDM systems, traffic, assessment, and auditing models to SBE, a new leadership position begins. SBE’s goals encompass the severity of the issue at hand, which is why there is no better person for the job than Steve Anderson. As a Social Entrepreneur, Olympic Gold Medal Coach, and Community Champion, Anderson takes over as President of the not-for-profit association SBE. Edward Henry states, “My choice to recruit Steve Anderson was because of his character, coaching background, competitive nature to overcome challenges, and his experience with a multi-faceted range of individuals.” Speaking to Anderson’s character, he doesn’t make excuses when doing the right thing. “Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.”

Along with Anderson’s motivating character, he is the first African American to coach an Olympic team in indoor or beach volleyball and the first to win an Olympic Gold Medal in either practice. Anderson is highly committed to being the driving force behind SBE to support ALL businesses. He, along with the efforts of SBE, will pave the way towards a better normal.

Our current actions reflect our future results. If we don’t continue putting in effort and showing our care for our businesses, we will continue losing pieces of our community and, in turn, our economy. Small businesses have experienced unfair measures and restrictions, putting them at risk for permanent closure. Continuous lockdowns are not a solution. “This current pandemic has cost over $20 trillion because we were not prepared,” said Edward Henry. The definition of insanity is to perform the same actions and expect different results. “We will do this over again if we don’t start changing the way we do things,” he added. The focus needs to be on Social Distance Compliance and universal protocols to preserve business continuity. If we want an improved normal, we need to stand by SmALL businesses and our communities. There is no better time than now to help businesses transition from lockdowns and longer than expected restrictions.

Instant Connect named a 2021 Gartner Cool Vendor

BETTER TEAMWORK: Team members essential to the mission are connected using any device they want – mobile, radio, IP, even telephony. Non-essential workers are excluded, eliminating needless clutter and distraction.

Instant Connect recognized for its dynamic frontline communications software – the next generation of push-to-talk communications

Being a Gartner Cool Vendor reflects the innovative nature of our next-gen frontline communications platform”

— Forrest Claypool

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, May 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Instant Connect Software LLC, a global leader in interoperable frontline communications, announced today that it has been named a Cool Vendor in the 2021 Gartner "Cool Vendors in Frontline Worker Technologies" report.

"We are thrilled to be a Gartner Cool Vendor, a recognition that we believe reflects the innovative nature of our next-generation frontline communications software platform," said Forrest Claypool, CEO of Instant Connect. "While conventional push-to-talk has served a vital role for frontline workers, Instant Connect offers a new generation of smart mobile-radio-IP communications with dynamic talk groups, automated workflows based on IoT and other data-based triggers, advanced geofencing, and even serverless deployments that can be up and running in minutes. These cross-platform, automation-rich advances are fueling significant improvements in frontline collaboration, business productivity, and worker safety. This is where frontline communications is heading."

Instant Connect software combines the traditional benefits of push-to-talk with new automated capabilities, including Dynamic Talk Groups, that are changing how enterprises keep their workforces connected, productive, and safe. The impact of this innovation is broad and wide across multiple global industries – mining, utilities, oil/gas, transportation, sports/events, manufacturing, higher education, government, military, and more.

“Regardless of the industry, frontline workers tend to work in teams sharing common tasks, missions, and deliverables, whether it’s to execute a scheduled workflow or resolve an unexpected emergency. Instant Connect software intuitively understands this and creates talk groups connecting only the workers essential to the mission,” said Claypool. “Team members instantly get all the information they need, with none of the clutter of conventional push-to-talk. The voice channels can be fluidly assembled, disassembled, expanded, or reduced in real-time, connecting teams across any device or network – radio, mobile, IP, and even telephony – so subscribers can freely share voice and data without technology or terrain getting in the way.”

The Instant Connect platform allows team members to participate in multiple dynamic talk groups at the same time, eliminating the communications gaps inherent in conventional push-to-talk. They don’t have to jump off of a channel in order to respond to additional calls and tasks. This multi-channel flexibility is critical in today’s fast-moving environments in which frontline workers often juggle multiple missions simultaneously.

Dynamic Frontline Communications represents the inevitable next-step as Voice Over IP (VoIP) and Radio over IP (RoIP) accelerate from niche usage to widely-embraced group communications that are cross-platform and mission-based. Gartner Research predicts that up to 70% of new mobile and endpoint investments over the next five years will be for frontline workers.
