Urban Design Group Principal to Perform at Humane Society Benefit

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 07, 2012

Prominent southern blues artist the Ken Rhyne Band will perform at the celebration marking the end of the Humane Society of Jackson Countys (HSJC) Ride Like the Animals event on Saturday, September 8, 2012.

Ride Like the Animals is the HSJCs inaugural pet festival, concert and motorcycle ride. It will be held from 1:00 pm 7:00 pm (rain or shine) at Crows Lake in Jefferson, GA. The event will also include pet demonstrations, pet services, a childrens area with inflatables, food, and a tailgate-themed beer garden.

The event is intended to raise funds and awareness for the creation of Jackson Countys first animal shelter. Currently, the HSJC operates through an all-foster home network. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Raise the Woof campaign, which was launched in early 2011.

Rhyne is an Atlanta-based Principal of Urban Design Group, which is currently providing pro bono architectural services for the planning and design of the future facility.

The staff and volunteers at HSJC are incredibly passionate about this vision, said Rhyne. Its a privilege to use my musical and design talents in support of their cause.

The Jackson County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously in June 2012 to negotiate a long-term property lease with the HSJC, allowing the organization to construct a shelter on a 15-acre site owned by the county.

In 2008, volunteers launched a courtesy placement program to assist with animals requiring re-homing that the group could not accommodate, since it currently operates through an all-foster home network.

Lincoln Trust Acquires Benefit Solutions Corp.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 18, 2012

Lincoln Trust Company, a leading provider of open architecture 401(k) and profit sharing solutions, today announced that it has acquired Benefit Solutions Corp., a leading 401(k) recordkeeper and third party administrator headquartered in Greenfield, WI.

The Benefit Solutions purchase is the third by Lincoln Trust in nine months and reflects the firms desire to continue rapid market growth through acquisitions. The acquisition strategy has allowed Lincoln to leapfrog competitors and establish a presence in key markets through the purchase of high quality firms.

We are pleased to have Benefit Solutions join the Lincoln Trust family, said Lincoln Trust Chairman and CEO Bob Beriault. They have created a unique managed solution serving the independent investment advisor representative and broker dealer community and one we intend to invest in to expand further.

New Markets, New Opportunities

Benefit Solutions provides an array of retirement plan services, including recordkeeping, third-party administration, compliance testing, and plan design. With a focus on 401(k) solutions built around third party money managers designed for investment advisor representatives and broker dealers, the firm brings a new market opportunity to Lincoln Trust.

By combining independent money management with distribution through the broker dealer market we bring a substantial new opportunity for Lincoln Trust, says Deyan Stojanovich, founder of Benefit Solutions. New fee disclosure rules, which require disclosure of direct and indirect compensation that service-providers receive, are pushing brokers away from the traditional fee-laden plans offered by insurance companies and other platforms and as a result have the reps looking for an open architecture solution.

The environment is rapidly changing for retirement plan advisors at broker dealers, said Stojanovich, who will lead institutional sales at Lincoln Trust. Lincoln Trust is perfectly positioned for this sea change in the industry, and I am confident we can capture a significant portion of this market.

Now that the Benefit Solutions acquisition is completed, Lincoln Trust services more than 2,700 qualified plans and well over $ 3.7 billion in assets under administration.

Lincoln Trust purchased Fringe Benefit Administrators, LTD, a retirement plan administrator in Metairie, LA., in late 2011 and added Independent Pension Consultants, Ltd. of Eden Prairie, MN in May, 2012. Earlier this year, the firm sold its self-directed IRA division to PENSCO Trust Company to prepare itself for future expansion in the defined contribution marketplace.

A strong industry advocate for full fee disclosure, Lincoln Trust introduced the Personalized Expense Ratio (PER), one of the retirement industrys first all-in 401(k) plan cost calculations. Lincoln Trusts PER goes beyond Department of Labor revisions that are going into effect this summer and fall.

About Lincoln Trust Company

Located in Denver, CO, and a member of the Council of Independent 401(k) Plan Recordkeepers, Lincoln Trust provides trust, custodial, recordkeeping and administration services to defined contribution plans. By providing access to 24,000 mutual funds and 900+ETFs without any proprietary product requirements and by using revenue sharing payments to offset plan expenses, Lincoln Trust offers low cost 401k plan solutions.

Space Exploration and Higher Education Will Both Benefit from New Partnership with NASA, Triad Semiconductor, Mentor Graphics and HBCU Communities

Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) June 15, 2012

An Agency-wide effort, the NASA Science and Technology Institute for Minority Institutions, or NSTI-MI, is a three-year competitive program designed to enhance the science, technology, engineering and math capabilities of HBCU students. The unique nature of Goddard’s arrangement is that it also involves a partnership with two private commercial companies.

Goddard, Alabama A&M University, Tuskegee University, along with Mentor Graphics in Wilsonville, Ore and Triad Semiconductor of Winston-Salem, N.C., have entered into a collaboration that will have university professors knowledgeable in microelectronics and computer science working with their students to build a library of electronic designs that can be rapidly and affordably built and used to design electronics for future spacecraft and instrument control.

“One of the challenges in undergraduate education is to have relevant and real design and build projects for students, said Lucy McFadden, Chief for Higher Education at Goddard. With efforts such as this, we have a ready structure to motivate students and give them a real learning environment with an exciting outcome.

Microelectronics design for space missions is demanding. Being able to optimize the size, weight and power of electronics is a mission critical activity for all projects. At the same time, outer space presents a harsh radiation environment requiring electronics to be able to operate under extreme conditions.

“Rapid development of electronics that meet size, weight and power requirements along with radiation-hardening will be critical to NASA’s future exploration efforts” said Lavida Cooper of the Applied Engineering and Technology Directorate at Goddard.

The researchers will utilize a design environment provided by Triad known as ViaDesigner. ViaDesigner is a new electronic design automation tool that enables system-level engineers, who have no previous integrated circuit design experience, to create their own application-specific integrated circuits. ViaDesigner is based on the Mentor Graphics SystemVision
