Let's Talk About Medicare Supplement Plans—What's Offered and What's the Cost?

Prenuptial agreements are a topic many marrying couples choose to ignore. After all, discussing a contractual document does take away from the romance of selecting a ring, a dress, a cake and other exciting details for your pending nuptials. Ask and you will receive as many opinions about prenuptial agreements as you will about marriage in general. Before saying "I do," it is worth discussing premarital agreements with your fiancé.

Youth over wisdom: Age discrimination in 2017

In many ways, ageism still runs rampant in Western society. This is no surprise, given our cultural obsession with youth and desire to "fight" the effects of aging. And unfortunately, the workplace is no exception, as experienced workers are often discarded and replaced by younger employees as a cost-saving measure. Age discrimination, in fact, is one of the few biases that continue to be ingrained in the employment practices of many companies. Often, this is because age discrimination cases are difficult to prove, as a New York Times piece explored in-depth recently.

2 Bright Faux Neon Signs for Local Restaurant

Coalhouse Pizza, a mainstay in Samford, Connecticut, since 2009, serves coal-fired pizzas, burgers, pasta, craft beer, spirits, and more. They take pride in being a local favorite, offering hand-crafted food and beverages to regulars and newcomers alike. As an innovative establishment, they are continually looking for ways to expand and enhance their offerings to patrons in new ways. As such, they needed a way to reflect some of these changes in their exterior signage. The outside façade of Coalhouse Pizza at that time featured a neon sign with their name in distinctive red lettering. Coalhouse Pizza contacted SIGNLite Inc., a local sign company, to assist with adding two new signs to their building exterior: one highlighting their bar and the other for their barbeque menu offerings.

Farm Jenny Case Study - Horse Monitoring Device

Farm Jenny’s founders had a vision: 24/7 horse monitoring. The inspiration for this product came from decades in the technology industry while owning a small horse farm. They understood that with horses, owners want to know where their animals are and that they are healthy and well.

They needed a solution that was easy to integrate and would reliably connect to the widest range of carriers, specifically in rural areas.

White Paper: 10 Business Cases for IoT Automation

The personal computer is a powerful tool to create efficiency in a business. When computers were first developed, however, they weren’t widely used. This wasn’t just because of size and cost; a major issue was that many business leaders simply didn’t understand how a computer could be used in their business. Once they became more compact and cost-effective, they evolved into a standard part of running any modern business. The same is true for other types of automation, including the Internet of Things (IoT). We are at the inflection point where IoT is being leveraged to accelerate the average small business.

White Paper: Wi-Fi vs Cellular for IoT Connectivity

Connectivity is the lifeblood of any IoT device. It is literally the “I” in “Internet of Things” – so if it does not reliably connect, your device ceases to be useful. When thinking through the development of a new IoT device, be it for industrial, medical, municipal, energy or basically any use-case, it can be tempting to look at “ambient Wi-Fi” as a solution for internet connectivity. Typically, the most compelling reasons for using “existing Wi-Fi” or “the customer’s Wi-Fi” vs. using cellular are the recurring communication and device costs. There are implications in using infrastructure you don’t control, however, that are not immediately obvious.
