PRN: PG&E Encourages Customers To Conserve Electricity As California Declares New Flex Alert

PG&E Encourages Customers To Conserve Electricity As California Declares New Flex Alert

[13-August-2012]
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) today urged customers to conserve electricity in response to a Flex Alert called for tomorrow, August 14, 2012, by the California Independent System Operator (CAISO), which manages the state’s power grid.

A Flex Alert is an urgent call to immediately conserve electricity and shift demand to off-peak hours to ease strain on the grid. CAISO issued the alert in response to forecasts of continued high temperatures this week, which will increase expected demand for electricity for air conditioning to near record levels.

PG&E encourages customers to begin reducing their energy use today, particularly between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m., when demand is highest. Customers should follow these simple conservation tips:

  • Adjust your thermostat to 78 degrees or higher or turn it off if you will be away from home. Use a fan instead of air conditioning, when possible.
  • Draw drapes and turn off unnecessary lighting.
  • Keep refrigerator full (with bottles of water if nothing else) and unplug the second refrigerator.
  • Avoid using electrical appliances and devices. Put off tasks like vacuuming, laundry, dish washing and computer time until after 6 p.m.
  • Set your pool pump to run overnight instead of during the day.

In addition to customer conservation efforts, PG&E uses “demand response” programs to reduce strain on the grid during summer months. Demand response programs are voluntary and allow enrolled customers to receive an incentive for reducing their energy use during peak demand times, like weekday afternoons. Today, the company activated two demand response programs for more than 2,000 business locations and one program for residential customers, reducing demand by approximately 60 megawatts of electricity.

Pacific Gas and Electric Company, a subsidiary of PG&E Corporation (NYSE:PCG), is one of the largest combined natural gas and electric utilities in the United States. Based in San Francisco, with 20,000 employees, the company delivers some of the nation’s cleanest energy to 15 million people in Northern and Central California.

PRN: UC Hastings Launches Lawyers for America

UC Hastings Launches Lawyers for America

[13-August-2012]
Pilot Program Based on Medical Model, Responsive to Legal Marketplace, Justice Gap

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — UC Hastings College of the Law introduces Lawyers for America, a pilot program based on the medical model to provide greater access to justice while responding to the challenging legal marketplace for graduating law students.

Based on the Medical Model
While most law students start their third year of law school sitting in the classroom, Lawyers for America students will have the opportunity to spend the year working full-time at a government agency or non-profit organization–and then return for a year, after a break to take the bar, in a paid fellowship position at the same job site.

Access to Justice
“It’s no secret that society suffers from a justice gap: that is, a large unmet need for the assistance of lawyers,” explains Lawyers for America’s executive director, UC Hastings Professor Marsha Cohen. “Our Fellows will provide human capital to partner sites facing high volumes of work and shortages of manpower.”

The program is also scalable. “Our first pilot class of fellows will serve in the San Francisco Bay Area, in partnership with UC Hastings,” says Cohen, “but the program is available to law schools and their government and nonprofit partners throughout the country.”

“Lawyers for America comes as part of UC Hastings’ plan to reboot legal education,” says Chancellor and Dean Frank H. Wu. “Not only will this program improve law students’ practical skills, it will serve to expand the availability of legal services for those who cannot afford lawyers, and in turn increases the ability of government and legal offices to render such services.”

Details
Lawyers for America, Inc. (LfA) is a California charitable corporation that has applied for IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit status. LfA was founded by UC Hastings College of the Law Professors David Faigman and Marsha Cohen. For more information, please visit www.uchastings.edu/lawyersforamerica.

AppFlow Launches the World’s First Crowdsourced App Discovery Platform

With iPhone app launch AppFlow is aiming to redefine app discovery

[13-August-2012]
SAN FRANCISCO, August 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ —

AppFlow is revolutionizing the way people discover apps with their newly launched iOS application. Following the success of AppFlow for Windows Phone 7 – being the largest third party app discovery tool on the platform ers – the company has built an experience tailored for iOS.

With over 650.000 apps available in the iOS app store finding the ones worthy of downloading is getting extremely difficult. AppFlow takes a fresh approach by allowing users to take a deep dive into the App Store selection and discover new and amazing apps.

“There are so many great things your smartphone can do with apps – and users are simply not aware of most of this . With AppFlow our goal is to showcase how much apps can add to your phone experience and to provide inspiration through a visually amazing experience” said Balint Orosz, Appflow CEO. “By integrating the social layer and allowing users to create app lists we are basically crowdsourcing the App Store model. The difference is that Apple only showcases a handful of apps, AppFlow, however comes with much richer content. AppFlow users can browse deep down, discovering apps the way and finding the one to download next – which is an app they probably didn’t even know existed before.”

Deep and visually engaging browsing experience is the key for AppFlow. “Based on the analytics of AppFlow for Windows Phone 7 we discovered that users prefer to browse and visually inspect lots of apps before choosing to download one. We built a user interface tailored for this experience, making AppFlow the best platform to discover new apps” – added Laszlo Zold, AppFlow CTO.

In AppFlow users can simply create their own App Lists such as “Great Weather Apps” or “Best News Readers for iPhone”. These App Lists are public and other users can browse them – either from the app or via the AppFlow website. Users can also follow App Lists and when doing so, receive notifications on new apps being added to these lists.

Crafted by award winning designers and developers the app provides a unique and visually rich experience for users – and makes app discovery an amazing experience.

SilkRoad Users Can Seamlessly Leverage TalentBin’s Talent Search Engine, Easily Sourcing the Entire Professional Web to Identify Hard-to-Find Candidates, and Import Profiles Directly Into OpenHire ATS

[13-August-2012]
SAN FRANCISCO and CHICAGO, Aug. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — TalentBin, the talent search engine that turbo-charges talent discovery across the web, today announced full integration with SilkRoad Technology, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based social talent management solutions. Users of SilkRoad’s OpenHire Applicant Tracking Software can now seamlessly leverage TalentBin’s expansive talent search engine to search across social media communities, tag relevant profiles, and import new candidates into their OpenHire interface. The integration enhances SilkRoad’s so cial recruiting capabilities, allowing hiring managers and recruiters to be even more proactive in engaging with the right candidates for the right jobs.

More than 100 leading companies, including Intuit, Groupon, Dolby, and Yahoo!, rely on TalentBin’s Talent Search Engine for their social media recruiting needs. TalentBin crawls social media and industry-specific web communities to identify potential job candidates, zeroing in on pertinent career information (skills, expertise, etc.) and merging them into a single unified web resume. Organizations can now jointly use TalentBin with SilkRoad’s OpenHire to proactively search, identify, and engage with the best talent the web has to offer, slashing time-to-hire and boosting quality-of-hire like never before.

“The mission of SilkRoad is to not just give our clients the most powerful and versatile end-to-end talent management solution available, but to turn their talent programs into a decisive business advantage.

Coupled with other industry-specific social communities like Github, Sourceforge, and Bitbucket for software engineering, for example, this bolsters passive professional profiles with information that’s vital to helping recruiters determine ideal job fit. The result is a more accurate, 360-degree view of a candidate that covers everything from professional skills to personal interests.
