Northern Light Principals Receive William Booth Award From The Salvation Army of Massachusetts

BOSTON, Dec. 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Priscilla and C. David Seuss, executives at Boston-based Northern Light (, were honored by The Salvation Army of Massachusetts at its annual luncheon Dec. 13 with the 2017 William Booth Award for their service to the community.

The William Booth Award is one of the highest awards conferred upon an individual by The Salvation Army. Nominees for the award are chosen on the basis of dedication to The Salvation Army’s goals of service to people; outstanding service to the community through the donation of time, expertise and energy; outstanding humanitarian effort within the community; and/or substantial contributions to the work of The Salvation Army.

This week’s annual luncheon marked only the second time the William Booth Award has been bestowed by The Salvation Army of Massachusetts.

The Seusses have supported The Salvation Army for 28 years, including expansion of the Our Place daycare center for homeless children and providing computers for graduates of the Bridging the Gap program for at-risk youth.  For the past five years, Northern Light has made a $50,000 annual challenge grant to help fund The Salvation Army’s distribution of Thanksgiving food baskets to needy individuals and families in the Greater Boston area.  Over the five-year period of the challenge grant, more than $500,000 has been raised from Northern Light and the matching donors.

“These baskets bring thousands of people into the joyous holiday celebration who would otherwise be left out, so the best thing in them is not the delicious food — it is a sense of normalcy, dignity, and family,” C. David Seuss, Northern Light’s CEO, said. “For example, I remember one woman who was just beaming as she received her basket, picturing in her mind’s eye how she was going to put on a feast for her family and a neighboring family on Thanksgiving Day.  ‘I can be the hostess again!’ she exclaimed.”

David and Priscilla Seuss define the meaning of the prestigious William Booth Award because of their incredible giving to the Massachusetts Division and their commitment to ensuring that The Salvation Army is able to transform lives on a daily basis,” said Major David B. Davis, Salvation Army Massachusetts Divisional Commander. “Their motives are similar to those of Salvation Army founder William Booth – ‘an awareness of human need and a compassionate response.'”

About The Salvation Army
Whether it is shelter for a displaced family or a hot cup of coffee for our brave first responders – hope and healing is the message of The Salvation Army. Since 1865, The Salvation Army has been providing social and spiritual services to communities throughout the world. People given purpose, hearts given hope and souls finding redemption – this has been The Salvation Army’s mission for more than a century. With heart to God and hand to man, The Salvation Army – an international movement – is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible.  Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

VantagePoint Software Now Forecasting Bitcoin and Other Cryptocurrencies Utilizing Patented A.I. Technology

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla., Dec. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — VantagePoint Software, using patented Artificial Intelligence technology to predict stock market trends and trend changes made the official announcement today that traders can now use the software to forecast Cryptocurrencies.

As a result of the recent growth in popularity of Cryptocurrencies and the outpouring of requests from current VantagePoint Software users, the VantagePoint R&D team began focusing on adapting the Artificial Intelligence forecasting technology for Cryptocurrencies.  Since 1991, VantagePoint has been able to consistently achieve over 80% accuracy in stocks and commodities due to the deep learning neural network technology that has been developed and refined over the past three decades (more information about the use of Artificial Intelligence can be found at

After considerable time spent testing and adapting the artificial intelligence to Cryptocurrency data VantagePoint Software has now been forecasting for Bitcoin, Litecoin and Ethereum for some time with the high level of accuracy and consistency that VantagePoint has been known to deliver for stock and commodity traders.  But now that Cryptocurrencies are being regulated, the software company has decided to make these forecasts accessible through the VantagePoint software. Regulation was the key to release these forecasts because the family-owned software company wanted to ensure legitimacy before releasing it to traders. “Here at VantagePoint we bring real, tangible opportunities that have been vetted and tested with Artificial Intelligence to traders and investors  We are not interested in chasing fads and forecasting financial instruments because of what’s popular.  We have criteria for what we forecast for and Cryptocurrencies meet the criteria.” said Lane Mendelsohn, Vice President of VantagePoint Software.

It’s no secret that Cryptocurrencies are at an all-time high, and the profit potential is huge. VantagePoint’s forecasting indicated earlier this year that these increases were imminent and while many still doubted the potential.  Since the VantagePoint forecast Bitcoin has gone up 330%, Litecoin has gone up 467% and Ethereum has gone up 109%.

Due to the volatility of the markets, Cryptocurrencies can gain and lose value day over day. With VantagePoint, traders have the upper hand as they are equipped with the ability to forecast the trend direction and predict the next day’s highs and lows before they happen.  Even for those who are investing in these crypto currencies as opposed to trading need insight ahead of time as to when these crypto currencies may pull back and may be setting up to crash and knowing this information ahead of time with a high degree of accuracy is paramount.

It is uncertain what will happen over time for the virtual currency markets, but it does appear that there will be some dramatic movements in the Cryptocurrency market in 2018. Although it is not possible to predict these movements for the upcoming year, traders can get ahead of the curve when they utilize VantagePoint’s proprietary Artificial Intelligence capabilities to predict the market strength and direction of the most popular Cryptocurrencies 1-3 days in advance with up to 86% accuracy.

About VantagePoint: Founded by Louis B. Mendelsohn in 1979, VantagePoint Software Technologies is an Inc. 500 company headquartered in the Tampa Bay area. It is the recognized global leader in market trend forecasting with customers in well over a hundred countries worldwide.

DaVita Addresses Physician Fatigue with Investment in DaVita Physician Solutions

DENVER, Dec. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — DaVita Inc. (NYSE: DVA), a leading independent medical group and a leading provider of kidney care services in the United States, today announced its continued investment in the newly named technology suite, DaVita Physician Solutions (formerly Falcon Physician), affirming its increased focus on improving physician satisfaction and clinical outcomes.

DaVita Physician Solutions will leverage artificial intelligence and platform-driven thinking to help make sure physicians have access to the right data, at the right time. A key innovator in the health care technology sector, DaVita Physician Solutions is focused on reducing physician IT fatigue through modern technology, with the goal of increasing quality of care and decreasing cost, while improving overall physician satisfaction.

“We are committed to seeing the world from our physicians’ perspective, and as their partner, it’s our obligation to address their challenges and frustrations through the delivery of our technology,” said Adam Weinstein, MD and vice president of medical affairs with clinical IT services at DaVita Kidney Care.

Within four months, DaVita Physician Solutions’ new mobile platform has 3,000 active users, demonstrating its value of physicians’ time through instant access to clinical information and easing administrative burden. Over the next 18 months, DaVita Physician Solutions will leverage the existing mobile platform to deliver improvements for physicians at point-of-care, as well as the launch of new products for practices and dialysis centers.

“While it might seem counterintuitive, we want our physicians to spend as little time per interaction with our tools as possible. The right technology should support our physicians in making the biggest impact in the least amount of time, giving them time back to spend where it matters most—on patient care,” said Derek Schoonover, vice president of physician experience and DaVita Physician Solutions at DaVita Kidney Care.
