Progress Solar to Exhibit Portable Solar/Wind Light Tower (SLTW-1200) at 2012 NC Federal Environmental Symposium

Apex, NC (PRWEB) June 11, 2012

Progress Solar Solutions, LLC to exhibit new solar light tower, durable and powerful enough to meet all Federal Government / Department of Defense needs and the rental equipment companies that serve them. The Progress Solar/Wind Light Tower (SLTW-1200) will be presented at the Environmental Symposium and is a great fit for this industrys high volume outdoor lighting needs which are dusk-to-dawn, seven days per week, year round. This model resembles a traditional portable diesel light tower but is powered by free, renewable energy instead of diesel fuel and can meet those challenging needs.

The Progress SolarTM SLT-1200 series of portable light towers is the most powerful available today, especially when combined with the New Wind Generator positioned on a telescoping mast above the flood lights. They are made in the U.S. (patent pending) and routinely operate independent of diesel, gas or the electric grid eliminating the use of fossil fuels or generation of carbon emissions. The solar light towers are powered by two on-board, high capacity solar generators and a wind generator, backed up by a dual bank rapid AC charger, if ever needed. These units are specifically designed for extremely demanding applications that need to be operational for lighting-on-demand year round. The large battery banks store power for several nights of lighting to allow use during cloudy days or inclement weather.

The Progress Solar SLT1200-HVR-N is a rugged, mobile light system that provides high-intensity, bright white lighting on-demand, where and when you need it. It is equipped with high power generating solar modules housed on automated solar wings that can be optimally positioned toward the sun to maximize solar energy gain combined with a wind generator to add additional wind power at night and during inclement weather for areas with an average wind speed of >/=7MPH; a telescoping mast equipped with 4 solid-state LED flood lights with high lumen output; and a long-life Power Module with sealed, AGM, no maintenance, deep-cycle batteries to store energy for use when needed. The light tower is fully adjustable from 12-30ft in height, able to tilt up/down and can rotate ~358 degrees. The solid-state LED flood lights provide a tremendous amount of bright white light, minimize power requirements, provide instant-on/off without flickering, are extremely reliable, vibration and shatter resistant, and designed to provide up to 5x longer run time between bulb changes than metal halide lights. The maximum power point tracking solar/light control module optimizes solar gain and protects the system. The lights can be turned on/off automatically from a timer, at user-programmable time intervals or manually on-demand. The system is on a portable trailer customized for maximum functionality and convenience and can be easily towed to its destination.

Dan Robertson, Partner of Progress Solar Solutions, commented, The SLTW-1200 series is a direct result of listening to some of the largest and most demanding outdoor lighting clients with challenging and extensive lighting applications like the Military, Oil & Gas, Mining, Public Utilities and Disaster Recovery. It also helps address the needs of clients in more solar challenged geographic areas.

Surprise Last Chance for the Maya 2012 Winter Solstice at Belize’s Chaa Creek

(PRWEB) December 08, 2012

Due to unforeseen circumstances, three deluxe packages for The Lodge at Chaa Creeks 2012 Maya Winter Solstice celebration have become available, marketing administrator Larry Waight announced today.

We thought we had been booked out, but I just discovered that three Maya 2012 Winter Solstice all-inclusive vacation packages are now available, which means three lucky people can now get in to join what promises to be an experience of a lifetime, Mr Waight said.

Chaa Creeks 2012 Maya Winter Solstice event has been highly anticipated since it was announced earlier this year. Combining hands-on education about Maya civilisation with tours of ancient Maya archaeological sites including some of the most important ancient cities in the Mundo Maya, or Maya World, the all-inclusive Belize vacation packages were designed to immerse guests in Maya culture prior to the December 21st Winter Solstice, which had been highlighted on the Maya Long Count calendar thousands of years ago as a pivotal date for humankind.

However, modern conspiracy buffs, various internet sites and even a major Hollywood film have helped promote speculation that the Maya Long Count calendar ends abruptly and signifies the end of the world on December 21 2012. Mr Waight said nothing could be further from the truth.

Those (apocalypse) theories are absolute and utter nonsense, Mr Waight said. December 21 2012 was and still is a hugely important date for the Maya. Its true that the date marks the completion of the 13th Baktun of the Maya Long Count calendar, a cycle thousands of years long, but interpreting that as the end of the world is taking a giant leap into fantasy world, he said.

There will be celebrations throughout the Mundo Maya, an area encompassing all of Belize and parts of Guatemala, Mexico, Honduras and El Salvador to commemorate the event. Huge crowds are expected at Mexicos ancient Maya site of Chitzen Itza and large celebrations are planned for Tikal in Guatemala. Mr Waight said Chaa Creeks celebrations are unique due to their more intimate, culturally holistic nature, emphasis on an authentic Maya experience and range of activities.

Its going to be a lot of fun, and the package is set up so that guests can structure their time and learn as much or as little as they want at our representational Maya village where there will be workshops in Maya arts, crafts, cooking, farming, healing and other areas, he said.

Dr Jaime Awe and Dr Allan Moore, two of the worlds leading Mayanists, will be giving presentations and authors Rosita Arvigo and David Ruiz, anthropologist Joe Awe, and Maya flautist Pablo Collado will be among other expert speakers and workshop leaders.

There will also be a wealth of activities and things do, such as canoeing, horseback riding, nature walks, Maya ceremonial cave explorations, even Caribbean snorkelling on the Belize Great Barrier Reef. We wanted to do something really special for the 2012 Winter Solstice, and everyones very happy with the results. Its structured to be deeply rewarding and at the same time deeply relaxing, Mr Waight said.

The highlight of the event will be on the solstice itself, December 21 2012, with a traditional Maya feast, music and candle light procession to the ancient Maya temple of Tunichilen located in Chaa Creeks 365 acre nature reserve.

The Maya Winter Solstice 2012 all-inclusive vacation package can be booked for seven, four or three days beginning December 15, Mr Waight said, and will interest everyone from professional Mayanists to families, friends and couples.

Far from being the end of the world, we think this is going to open up a whole new way of looking at the world for everyone taking part in this event. This is the very centre of the Heartland of the Maya, and it is going to be very interesting to see what happens the night of December 21, 2012.

Whatever happens, at least everyone here at Chaa Creek is going to be very well prepared for it, he added.

In The Event Produces 2012 Zero Fatalities Safety Summit

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 29, 2012

Salt Lake City based event design firm, In The Event, teamed up with the organizations involved in Utahs Zero Fatalities Safety Summit to develop a fresh approach to the conference, accommodating for the influx of attendees with a new location, new look and new perspective. The Zero Fatalities Safety Summit was held at South Towne Exposition Center from October 25 to 26, with a pre-conference held on the 24th. Zero Fatalities is the result of combined efforts from various agencies, state departments and organizations to save lives on Utahs roads. The public education program developed for the Utah Department of Transportation focuses on the top behaviors killing people in car accidents. The campaign seeks to educate in order to prevent these behaviors and unite Utah drives in their common goal of diminishing traffic fatalities.

The Zero Fatalities Safety Summit was, of course, something we were eager to be involved in. We felt we could design a new look and feel for the summit using our unique inventory to help further propel the goals of the conference, says Robert LaSpina, In The Event Co-Founder and Vice President. In The Event utilized their video towers to showcase the events sponsors and display Zero Fatalities videos, which assisted in bringing the stories of the campaign to life, continues LaSpina. In The Event also utilized chalk walls and a hot topic lounge, complete with their black and white leather furniture and wireless LED coffee and side tables, to encourage engagement and conversation at the summit. The tops of the coffee tables and side tables had custom graphics with word bubbles filled with driving safety issues. The text included words such as seat belts and drowsy driving, in order to incite attendees to deliberate on these issues inherent to the Zero Fatalities campaign. Additionally, In The Events chalk walls were used the encourage further discussion of the Zero Fatalities issues. Each chalk wall had a graphic cling at the top with one of the conference sponsors logos and a question related to that specific organization. Event registration also had custom graphics to match the Zero Fatalities look.

In The Event worked closely with Penna Powers Brian Haynes ad agency to ensure cohesion in the event design and promotion process. PPBH is the ad agency responsible for marketing and promotion of the Zero Fatalities program. The agency develops strategic partnerships and TV and radio spots impressing upon the importance of safe driving. The program is built upon the idea that the only number of traffic fatalities we can all live with is zero. The campaign has been extremely effective, with decreases seen in drowsy driving fatalities, aggressive driving fatalities, lack of seat belt usage and more. The Zero Fatalities Safety Summit brings together all of the organizations supporting the program to further educate and increase awareness about it.

Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) September 25, 2012

Sarasota County Commission today recognized Sweet-Sparkman architects and Ringling College of Art and Design students for the ‘ORIGINS’ exhibit at 2012 Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy.

The pure quartz sands of Siesta Key Beach were on display last month at the 13th International Architecture Exhibition in Venice, Italy, in an exhibit created by local architects Jerry Sparkman and Todd M. Sweet along with students, staff and alumni from the Ringling College of Art and Design. Sparkman and the team from Ringling were honored today with a certificate of recognition by the Sarasota County Commission at the start of the Sept. 25 meeting.

The conceptual exhibit, called Origins, features a sand waterfall that flows from the ceiling through a hand-cast glass vitrine in front of a 10 x 10 glass wall. The architects from the firm of Sweet Sparkman were invited to participate in the exhibition by Rene Reitmeyer, a Dutch artist and the curator for the exhibition. Reitmeyer was intrigued by Sparkmans Casey Key beach house design, which prompted him to offer the architect an invitation to present a conceptual proposal to the exhibitions selection committee in January.

Ringling College student team members honored today include Business of Art & Design 2012 graduate Mari Garman and 2012-2013 Trustee Scholar Agneta Ramoskaite; Fine Arts seniors Diana Lueken and Devon Keene; 2012-2013 Trustee Scholar for Student Life and Interior Design senior Dehne Sibbernsen; Motion Design sophomore Jason Beale and Photography & Digital Imaging sophomore Jackson Petty.

Siesta Keys sand is made of 99.9% pure quartz. It is one of the reasons Siesta Key Beach was named the 2011 Best Beach in America by Dr. Stephen Leatherman, also known as Dr. Beach.

The exhibit received support from the Sarasota County Commission, Sarasota County Parks and Recreation, the Gulf Coast Community Foundation and Visit Sarasota County.

The ORIGINS exhibition is open to the public at the BIENNALE ARCHITETTURA 2012 until November 25, 2012 at the Palazzo Bembo, located at 4793 Riva del Carbon, 30124 Venice, Italy. More than 40,000 visitors are expected to tour the ORIGINS exhibit during its run.
