The Pacific Mesothelioma Center Raises Over $143,000 for Mesothelioma Research at Annual 5K Walk for Meso!

The Pacific Mesothelioma Center raises mesothelioma awareness and funds for it's innovative mesothelioma research at annual 5K Walk for Meso.

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2018 / — The Pacific Mesothelioma Center at the Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute marked its 7th annual 5K Walk/Hike for Mesothelioma on Oct 21, 2018, at the Paramount Ranch. With over 350 walkers, the event raised over $143,000 for malignant pleural mesothelioma research.

The 5K walk for mesothelioma plays a special role to many people for different reasons. For some, it offers them hope, that someday soon there will be better treatment options for this devastating disease. For others it offers them comfort, it reminds them of a family member or friend who died of mesothelioma too soon. And for mesothelioma warriors, who are able to see other warriors like themselves at the walk, it reminds them to keep up the fight.

Walkers arrived at The Paramount Ranch at around 9 AM and after receiving a complimentary T-shirt, and fruit products generously donated by Dole set out on the 5K or 1-mile hike.

After the walk, participants enjoyed a catered lunch by local Agoura Hills favorite Italia Deli, music by DJ Drew Young, and a program led by Master of Ceremonies CHiPS star Larry Wilcox. The live auction featured items such as a photo safari for two in South Africa and a Four Seasons Hotel luxury package. The opportunity drawing featured items such as gift baskets, dining and adventure certificates, and weekend getaways.

Many attendees walk to honor those they have lost to this devastating disease. Returning walker Delia states "I attended the walk to honor my late husband Sal, who courageously battled mesothelioma and sadly lost the fight this past March. I found the walk emotional and at the same time cathartic as it gave me hope that the money raised for research would one day find a cure. There are so very little research funds given to rare, aggressive and deadly cancers like mesothelioma.”

Lisa, a first-time walk attendee shared ” I organized Team Bruce for the walk to honor my dad Bruce Frederiksen who lost his battle earlier this year and to show support for everyone else whose lives have been devastated by this horrible disease. It was an emotionally charged day but I was so proud of the increased awareness this event brought to our cause and I'm thrilled about our successful fundraising for the research that will one day lead to a cure”.

The walk also brings together mesothelioma warriors including two-year mesothelioma survivor Tina who shared with us ”I keep telling my family that there are two fighters in this fight, me and mesothelioma and there’s only going to be one winner, and I’m going to be the winner”.

Donations for the 5K Walk for Mesothelioma are still being accepted at

mxHero Inc.

MxHero provides a solution to extract critical business records from company email prior to deletion by corporate retention policies

MxHero helps companies implement email deletion policies without destroying critical business records.”

— Alexis Panagides, CEO, mxHero Inc.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2018 / — MxHero, developer of the email to cloud integration technology, Mail2Cloud, announces its solution aimed at helping companies preserve critical business records found in emails from automatic deletion imposed by retention policies. Many organizations are implementing email retention policies that delete all email messages over a certain age, for example, after 90 days. By eliminating emails, companies significantly reduce breach and litigation risks. However, the challenge is that email is a primary means of communication and often contains important business records such as attached contracts, employee records, key client communications, written agreements. MxHero’s Mail2Cloud provides automated and selective extraction of business record content combined with intelligent filing to secure storage targets, such as, Box, Egnyte, Google Drive, OneDrive, etc.

“Preserving email is a security and litigation risk. Companies are increasingly adopting short retention policies for the email communications. However, given that much of business is conducted over email, how does a company not ’throw the baby out with the bath water’? MxHero’s ability to target and extract business records from emails and move them into secure content management systems prior to deletion is proving invaluable to companies from all industries,” states Alex Panagides, CEO, mxHero Inc.

MxHero’s business record extraction solution is compatible with all business email systems, ex. O365, G-Suite, Exchange, etc.

首尔, 大韓民国, November 14, 2018 / — 区块链专门企业Glosfer(代表金泰元)为首尔永登浦区政府构建了“基于区块链的建议评价系统”。该系统在首尔市监察委员会主办的“2018年反腐败优秀案例”征集活动中,荣获了最优秀案例奖。本次案例征集活动旨在提高市政府、下属机构以及自治区各部门内部的清正廉洁度,同时为反腐败工作做出贡献,本次活动大力发掘并宣传相关案例以营造更为廉洁的组织文化。

永登浦区政府推出的“基于区块链的建议评价系统”主要发挥以下两方面作用: 第一,在区政府进行评价的过程中(建议评价委员会等),可防止发生造假或篡改等问题;第二,可消除投标企业及区民对招标结果的疑虑,能保证评价结果的透明性。此外,该系统还可简化了招标部门的行政业务量。


Glosfer的负责人对此表示:“基于区块链的建议评价系统并不是先引入区块链技术,而是先找出地方政府在业务革新过程中最需要改善的部分,其后再共同商讨如何使用区块链来解决这一问题,因此这次的案例意义重大。”同时他还指出:“首先向永登浦区政府获得本次奖项表示衷心祝贺,日后我们还将继续努力,争取能与其他机构和企业合作推出类似的案例。 ”

Glosfer’s Blockchain-based Proposal Evaluation System Wins Seoul Government’s ‘Best Anti-Corruption Practice Award’

Public-Private Collaboration Case of Blockchain Adoption to Boost Innovation and Efficiency in District Office

SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA, November 14, 2018 / — Glosfer’s blockchain-based proposal evaluation system built for Yeongdeungpo-gu Office won the ‘2018 Contest for Best Anti-Corruption Practice’ organized by the Seoul Metropolitan Government’s Audit Committee. The contest was designed to discover and promote use cases that eradicate corruption and boost the integrity of the Seoul Metropolitan Government and affiliated organizations and district offices, with the aim of improving the overall organizational culture.

The blockchain-based proposal evaluation system prevents falsification, removes any element of doubt bidders or residents may have in the bidding process and makes the evaluation results completely transparent. It also streamlines the administrative work of relevant departments throughout the process.

This is the second time Glosfer has successfully established a blockchain-based solution for a local government. Previously Glosfer launched Nowon Cash, a blockchain-based local cryptocurrency, in Nowon District of Seoul.

CEO Taewon Kim of Glosfer said, “The blockchain-based proposal evaluation system is a meaningful case in which we cooperated to find areas that need innovation the most and discuss ways of using blockchain to provide solutions, rather than blindly applying blockchain technology.” After extending his congratulations to the Yeongdeungpo-gu Office on winning the contest he added, “We will work hard to create more cases like this for other organizations and companies.”

Glosfer has been boosting its technological competitiveness by enhancing HYCON, the blockchain platform developed with its own technology.
