gI 139762 gI 76769 2012%20NAPW%20Logo1 Author Bettye A. Johnson Named VIP Woman of the Year, by the National Association of Professional Women
Garden City, NY (PRWEB) November 22, 2013

NAPW honors Bettye A. Johnson as a 2013/2014 Professional Woman of the Year for leadership in writing/publishing with this prestigious distinction. As the largest, most-recognized organization of women in the country, spanning virtually every industry and profession, the National Association of Professional women is a vibrant networking community with nearly 500,000 members and over 400 Local Chapters.

“I am 84 years old and still going strong!” Ms. Johnson proudly says. The award-winning author of seven books admits she always knew she would be a writer. She considers the toy typewriter she received as a little girl one of her “most treasured Christmas gifts.”

Ms. Johnson began to write stories for her grandchildren more than two decades ago and eventually wrote and published her first book, A Christmas Awakening. Ms. Johnson became intrigued with the story of Mary Magdalene while visiting many churches in the south of France. Once home, the author researched her life further and soon penned, Secrets of the Magdalene Scrolls, followed by Mary Magdalene, Her Legacy. Ms. Johnson’s third book in the trilogy, Magdelana of Hy Brazil, is nearly complete. All of her books are self-published through her company Living Free Press.

During the 1950s, Ms. Johnson lived in Europe and worked as a code clerk at the American embassies in Paris and Tokyo. She got the job by applying for an overseas position while working as a civil servant. “I always wanted to travel the world. I saw an ad for a code clerk. I had no idea what it was but thought, ‘I’ll take it,” she recalls. Her years in Europe, her spiritual reawakening and other life experiences, have inspired Ms. Johnson to also write her memoir. She is currently working on her latest book about women.

NAPW provides an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect, learn and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.

Geographic IP Routing Awareness on the Rise Among Users

gI 59372 0 dnsmadeeasysmall Geographic IP Routing Awareness on the Rise Among Users
Reston, VA (PRWEB) April 29, 2014

The need for geographical source-based IP routing is on the rise.

The Global Traffic Director (GTD) from DNS Made Easy provides geographical source-based IP routing. This unique type of service allows GTD users to optimize and direct traffic flow based on the geographical location of their end user. This means clients in Europe can access European servers and users in United States can access US-based servers.

By regionally dividing traffic among different servers or data centers users can easily increase the performance of web application and services. When users are accessing your sites and services quicker, they are given a much higher level of service, which directly relates to higher revenue, higher productivity and a competitive advantage.

« We have seen a 10 percent increase in geo-specific queries, » said Steve Job, president of DNS Made Easy. « The demand for geo-proximity servers is growing because people are starting to understand that routing to the correct server translates to faster speeds. »

DNS Made Easy’s GTD services use our powerful IP Anycast+ network of DNS Made Easy to identify the geographical location of the querying client. Based on the region where the query originates the administrator is able to define unique DNS responses to a specific server.

Combining a regional placement of web servers with DNS Made Easy’s GTD service an organization is able to provide a powerful web service and direct their users to their closest hosting facility.

DNS Made Easy segments traffic in four locations, with a fifth location coming this year. The locations include North American Easy (previously called US-East); North American West (previously called US-West); Europe and Asia with additional services in Australia (coming by Q3 2014).

The benefits of GTD means optimized performance of web applications and servers. Network administrators can build a multi-tiered load balancing and DNS Failover solution in conjunction with the Global Traffic Director to create an enterprise fault redundant system that provides maximum uptime and redundancy. As a user, you can redirect traffic around problem network nodes or outages with no additional software or hardware. Segmenting traffic in this manner leads to faster access of cloud and data services.

« The bottom line is the GTD services increase performance of web services, » Job said. « We live in a market where time is money and getting internet traffic where it needs to be and getting there fast makes the difference in overall success. »

About DNS Made Easy

DNS Made Easy is a subsidiary of Tiggee LLC, and is a world leader in providing global IP Anycast enterprise DNS services. DNS Made Easy implemented the industry’s first triple independent Anycast cloud architecture for maximum DNS speed and DNS redundancy. Originally launched in 2002, DNS Made Easy’s services have grown to manage hundreds of thousands of customer domains receiving more than 8.0 billion queries per day. Today, DNS Made Easy builds on a proud history of uptime and is the preferred DNS hosting choice for most major brands, especially companies that compare price and performance of enterprise IP Anycast alternatives.

IPCC Summary for Policy Makers on Climate Change Criticized by Coordinating Lead Author Stavins shows Worrisome Political Interference say Friends of Science

gI 78717 spencer models epic fail IPCC Summary for Policy Makers on Climate Change Criticized by Coordinating Lead Author Stavins shows Worrisome Political Interference say Friends of Science
Calgary, Alberta, Canada (PRWEB) April 29, 2014

Friends of Science, the climate change science review organization, are lauding the recent statements in the press written by Harvard University’s Robert N. Stavins, as he publicly asks “Is the IPCC Government Approval Process Broken?” as reported in the Huffington Post April 27, 2014. Stavins wrote: “… there may be an inescapable conflict between scientific integrity and political credibility.”

“What level of credibility on climate change and global warming should we ascribe to a report where the summary has been rewritten by self-interested government representatives?” ask Ken Gregory, research director for Friends of Science, a climate science review organization.

Stavins is the Albert Pratt Professor of Business & Government, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, Director of the Harvard Environmental Economics Program and Director of the Harvard Project on Climate Agreement.

Robert Stavins’ role with the IPCC is that of Co-Coordinating Lead Author (CLA) of Chapter 13, « International Cooperation: Agreements and Instruments. » Stavins points out that he and others spent grueling and time-consuming effort to summarize the 2,000 pages in 15 chapters of science, written by the Working Group III (Mitigation) of the Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) IPCC, into an agreed upon, readable 33 page Summary for Policy Makers.

« The Summary for Policy Makers (SPM) is probably the most significant document of the mammoth IPCC report, » says Gregory, « as governments refer to this readable overview to direct their climate change policy decisions. »

According to his own account in the Huffington Post, Stavins was dismayed that government representatives moved in to change virtually everything in the summary to suit their national interests.

Stavins describes the process as such: “…. the only way the assembled government representatives would approve text for SPM.5.2 was essentially to remove all “controversial” text (that is, text that was uncomfortable for any one individual government), which meant deleting almost 75% of the text….under IPCC rules, the dissent of one country is sufficient to grind the entire approval process to a halt unless and until that country can be appeased.”

Atmospheric scientist Judith Curry responded to Stavins intial posting on her blog, musing about the IPCC report “…True to its classic wicked messiness, there is no unambiguous way to separate natural from anthropogenic climate change, or to separate climate change impacts from other confounding factors, or to separate the solutions from the broader issues of population increase, underdevelopment, mismanagement, and corrupt governments.”

Curry recently testified to the US Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works on Jan. 16, 2014 on President Obama’s “Climate Action Plan,” with words that contradicted the administration’s claims of an impending, human-caused climate crisis. She stated that “Evidence reported by the IPCC AR5 weakens the case for human factors dominating climate change in the 20th and early 21st centuries.” She also stated that carbon dioxide does not appear to be the ‘knob’ that controls climate.

The Dutch government is demanding an overhaul of the IPCC to include natural climate change, not just human-induced climate change, among other issues.

Likewise, in 2011, the Global Warming Policy Foundation published a report by author and economist Ross McKitrick entitled “What’s Wrong with the IPCC?

Ross McKitrick will be guest speaker at Friends of Science 11th Annual Luncheon May 13, 2014. The topic will be “The Pause in Global Warming: Climate Policy Implications.” Ticket information on-line:


Friends of Science have spent a decade reviewing a broad spectrum of literature on climate change and have concluded the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide (CO2). The core group of the Friends of Science is made up of retired earth and atmospheric scientists.
