Air Quality Sensors with sensitivity in the ppb range

Now there are Electrochemical Sensors for monitoring low levels of CO, NO2, O3, SO2, NO or H2S gases. There are also reliable PID sensors for measuring VOCs.

The ppb sensitivity of these sensors makes them the best available.”

— Fei Shen

SANTA ROSA, CA, UNITED STATES, March 6, 2021 / — There now are Electrochemical Sensors for monitoring low levels of CO, NO2, O3, SO2, NO or H2S gases (key contributors to poor air quality). There are also reliable PID sensors for measuring VOCs. The gas sensors are designed for air quality monitoring to measure the low-concentration CO, NO2, O3, SO2, NO or H2S gas with ultra-high resolutions. The design optimizes the sensor sensitivity, accuracy and long-term stability and enables the sensor to detect variations at parts per billion (ppb) levels.

The PID Sensors are designed for the detection of a wide variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). In general, any compound with ionization energy (IE) lower than that of the lamp photons can be measured. Based on its proprietary ultraviolet (UV) lamp technology, Senovol PID sensors have the advanced features of high UV outputs, and long lamp life spans.

East Coast Electronics Recycling Earns Perfect 5-Star Ratings from Delighted Customers


ECER Inc. Earns 5 Star Ratings From Clients

The essence of the company’s promise to customers is captured by its tagline: “we take care of everything so you won’t need to.”

SHIRLEY, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, March 5, 2021 / — Leading electronic and computer recycling company East Coast Electronics Recycling is celebrating a milestone that few organizations in any sector can claim: earning perfect 5-star ratings from a growing roster of delighted customers.

“The essence of our promise to customers is captured by our tagline, which is ‘we take care of everything so you won’t need to,’” commented a spokesperson from East Coast Electronics Recycling, which serves townships, businesses, hospitals, schools and government agencies. “We understand that our customers want to do the right thing by properly recycling their obsolete or irreparable e-waste such as computers, laptops, monitors, printers, scanners and the list goes on. But they don’t have the time or expertise to make sure that every detail is taken care of. That is where we come in to make the difference.”

Some of the praise that East Coast Electronics Recycling has earned includes:

“We’ve been using ECER Inc. for over 10 years and can’t say enough good things about them. The service is a model of promptness & efficiency. The staff was highly cordial & professional. They are so polished at what they do that it did not disrupt our daily operations at all. We have used them several times with no complaints, and we plan on using them for years to come.”

“Our population has grown steadily over the last several years, and with it has been an increase in demand for recycling of old electronics. Our neighbors suggested ECER Inc. as a company that would address this need. We’ve been doing live load collections with them, and things couldn’t be going better. The staff is completely professional & courteous. They arrive promptly, load & shrinkwrap the material, and haul it away. Simply put, ECER Inc. takes the stress & headaches out of electronic waste recycling.”

Additional testimonials are available at

Currently, East Coast Electronics Recycling’s services include drop off container programs (open & closed top), electronics recycling pickup services, and electronics recycling collection events. In addition, the company offers secure data destruction to keep hackers from snooping on private, personal and proprietary information.

“Retail-level drive wipers do not fully destroy data on hard drives and other storage devices, and formatting hard drives is essentially as ineffective as ripping the table of contents out of a book — the data is still there, and hackers can easily and rapidly retrieve it,” commented a spokesperson from East Coast Electronics Recycling. “We use data destruction technology that is certified by the U.S. Department of Defense, and the end-to-end process is carried out by our trained specialists, and monitored and verified real-time. In addition, for customers who cannot remarket their e-waste — for example, it may be a violation of compliance regulations — we utilize a state-of-the-art device shredder that destroys data and the hard drive itself.”.
Organizations can learn more about East Coast Electronics Recycling — and learn how the company delivers on its promise “we take care of everything so you won’t need to” — by visiting or by calling 877.537.9940.

Pathways CEO Jeff Giovinazzo

Pathways Consulting Group CEO Jeff Giovinazzo and Westbury Analytics VP Pedro Soto talk about how company culture and leadership affect the employee experience.

“It’s very important to [our] brand that we create a positive experience. You’re buying talent, you’re buying problem solvers when you work with Pathways.”

— Jeff Giovinazzo

ISELIN, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, March 5, 2021 / — Pathways Consulting Group CEO Jeff Giovinazzo was recently featured on Westbury Analytics’ podcast, hosted by Pedro Soto, VP of Performance Analytics, to discuss creating employee experiences. Over the course of the 32-minute discussion, Soto and Giovinazzo discussed multiple employee experiences and research-related items, ranging from the scientific, big data approach to the “touchy-feely, hugs and nurturing” side.

“If you’re going to start with employee experience, start with employee number one,” said Giovinazzo. “If you want to create a positive experience for someone else, you have to be positive, you have to spend time getting to know who you are and what your strengths and weaknesses are.”

“You’ve obviously had to have been successful in creating an employee experience because otherwise your company would not be around,” Soto said. “And I know for a fact that your team is very cohesive; they’re very engaged with the company vision and happy…it’s truly a testament to your leadership.”

As the discussion went on, the two continually chipped away at the heart of the topic: How leadership and culture combine for a strong employee experience.

“With our leadership team, we identify our goals, what we want to do…and it’s reflected in our core values ‘we listen we care we execute.’” Giovinazzo said. “It’s very important to the brand that we create a positive experience. You’re buying talent, you’re buying problem solvers when you work with Pathways, so the first step is we have to listen – we have to know what the challenge is that you’re trying to solve.”

“We have a collaborative environment. If somebody doesn’t know the answer, they feel safe to say ‘you know what, that’s a great question. Give me two minutes and let me get an answer for you,’” Giovinazzo continued. “I have to feel safe that I can make mistakes, because sometimes when you say no to a client, they might not be having the best day…they might overact. It’s important to the person on that front line to know that [the company’s leadership] has their back.”

Have You Lost Money Investing in AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc.? – Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. Class Action Investigation

Kehoe Law Firm, P.C.

Kehoe Law Firm, P.C.

Class Action Lawsuit Filed On Behalf Of Investors Who Acquired UAVS Securities Between September 3, 2019 And February 18, 2021, Both Dates Inclusive

PHILADELPHIA, PA, USA, March 4, 2021 / — Kehoe Law Firm, P.C. is investigating potential securities claims on behalf of investors of AgEagle Aerial Systems Inc. (“AgEagle” or the “Company”) (NYSE: UAVS) to determine whether the Company engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.

On March 4, 2021, a class action lawsuit was filed in United States District Court, Central District of California, on behalf of AgEagle investors who purchased, or otherwise acquired AgEagle securities between September 3, 2019 and February 18, 2021, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”).

According to the class action complaint, the AgEagle Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that (1) AgEagle did not have a partnership with Amazon and in fact never had any relationship with Amazon; (2) rather than correct the public’s understanding about a partnership with Amazon, the AgEagle Defendants were actively contributing to the rumor that AgEagle had a partnership with Amazon; and (3) as a result, the AgEagle Defendants’ statements about AgEagle’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On February 18, 2021, Bonitas Research published a report which stated, among other things, that AgEagle “. . . was a pump & dump scheme orchestrated by Alpha Capital Anstalt . . ., AgEagle founder and former chairman Bret Chilcott and other UAVS insiders to defraud US investors.”

The Bonitas Research report also stated that Bonitas Research “ . . . [has] found no evidence of any ‘major e-commerce customer’ or any drone technology credited to AgEagle other than reference to the Promo Video leaked by AgEagle’s founder and former Chairman Bret Chilcott’s daughter.”

Additionally, Bonitas Research reported that “[i]n 4Q’20 an Amazon spokesperson disclosed to reporter Daniel McCoy of the Witchita Business Journal that Amazon specifically does not have any dealings with AgEagle whatsoever.”

On this news, shares of AgEagle dropped significantly during intraday trading, closing down 36.41% on February 18, 2021, thereby injuring investors.


Kehoe Law Firm, P.C., with offices in New York and Philadelphia, is a multidisciplinary, plaintiff–side law firm dedicated to protecting investors from securities fraud, breaches of fiduciary duties, and corporate misconduct. Combined, the partners at Kehoe Law Firm have served as Lead Counsel or Co-Lead Counsel in cases that have recovered more than $10 billion on behalf of institutional and individual investors.

Securis recycles more than four million pounds of IT waste preventing hazardous materials from clogging landfills

Securis electronics recycling

As a trusted data destruction partner, Securis helps clients navigate a difficult climate of pandemic and recession while making them more environmentally sound

CHANTILLY, VA, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2021 / —  Chantilly, VA – March 4, 2021– Leading data destruction and asset recycling company Securis saw a record year in 2020 despite the unprecedented number of challenges. Overall, Securis was able to recycle more than four million pounds of IT equipment, keeping heavy metals and other toxins out of landfills. Securis also shred close to 65,000 hard drives, keeping clients’ data and valuable information safe and secure, while growing its commercial, residential, and municipal partnerships. With 2021 now underway and many of the same challenges still top-of-mind, Securis anticipates continued growth building off of its successful 2020.

“Like everyone else, we had to scramble and adjust in real-time to the quarantines, shutdowns, slowdowns, and overall chaos of the last year,” says Jeremy Farber, Securis’ Founder and CEO. “Luckily, we were able to meet the needs of our customers, begin working with other businesses and municipalities, and institute safety protocols to keep our teams safe and healthy while at work. Through it all, we never lost sight of how essential our work is for the organizations that we work with.”

As Securis continued its growth, the impact the company had on its clients had a global impact. More than four million pounds of IT equipment was repurposed, recycled, or resold rather than added to landfills – preventing waste, reducing the amount of toxins that could seep into the soil and groundwater, and providing gently used equipment for resale.

According to an article from The Atlantic, “The increase in consumption of electronics has two major adverse ecological effects. First, it significantly increases mining and procurement for the materials needed for production of gadgets. And second, discarded devices produce large quantities of electronic waste. That waste could be reduced through reuse, repair, or resale.” By working with Securis, organizations are doing their part to reduce the ecological strain that discarding electronics has on the planet. Additionally, many device components are made from materials that will remain intact for thousands of years. Securis takes its commitment to reducing e-waste seriously and is a proud partner of other like-minded organizations.

While the four million pounds of equipment that Securis recycled in 2020 benefited the environment, the 65,000 hard drives shredded benefited organizations and individuals alike by ensuring that personal data, trade secrets, and financial records were destroyed in a responsible and secure way.

Said Farber, “it’s no secret that data breaches continue to rise, with tens of billions of records stolen last year alone. A lot of this information was stolen from low-hanging corporate fruit: old, unused, and unsecured devices. Shredding the hard drives of such devices prevents critical information from falling into the wrong hands. Many of our clients are beginning to see hard drive shredding not only as asset management, but as part of their risk-mitigation strategy.”

Securis’ vision for 2021 is to build off of its unprecedented success of 2020 – continuing to build its reputation as a trusted data and IT asset destruction partner while being a strong environmental steward and corporate citizen.

About Securis
Securis, a faith-based company dedicated to helping its local and global community, is a leader in secure computer disposal, hard drive destruction, and all of the e-waste recycling that takes place when IT equipment reaches its end of life. They provide a complete audit of your IT recycling and asset destruction so you can stay in compliance with all of the relevant federal and local laws. Securis is the only IT recycling and data destruction partner you’ll need.

ID R&D Achieves Breakthrough Voice Biometric Accuracy

ID R&D Logo

Demonstrates accuracy exceeding a PIN for Device Unlock

As voice becomes the de facto standard for interacting with everything from televisions to cars, biometrics emerge as the most convenient way to identify users for security and personalization.”

— Konstantin Simonchik

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, March 4, 2021 / — ID R&D, a provider of AI-based voice and face biometrics, today announced that it has achieved a breakthrough in voice biometric accuracy. Using voice biometrics for the scenario of unlocking a device with spoken voice, ID R&D attained a .01% false acceptance rate and a 5% false rejection rate in the microphone channel in a third-party test. This level of accuracy rivals that of a PIN.

Until now, the security standard for unlocking a mobile device or laptop exceeded what was possible to achieve with spoken voice, relegating voice to a useful convenience for some functions but not sufficient for completely unlocking a device.

There are numerous circumstances where a user needs hands-free access to their device. By saying a short wake-up word or passphrase along with a command, a user can unlock a device and begin interacting with it in a way that is instantly personalized and secure. Unlike other methods of login, voice offers hands free access such as “Okay <mobile device>, open my calendar.” Voice biometrics can now be used to unlock mobile phones, laptops, and IoT devices, as well as mobile and web applications. In the scenario of a banking app, “Hey <bank>, open my checking account,” would authenticate the user and take them straight to the requested information.

ID R&D consistently leads in voice biometric and anti-spoofing accuracy, obtaining strong results in the most recent NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation: CTS Challenge and a first-place finish in the global 2019 Automatic Speaker Verification Spoofing and Countermeasures Challenge (ASVspoof). The new accuracy advances further build on the company’s best-in-class capabilities.

“ID R&D is laser-focused on R&D efforts that move the market forward and enable new and exciting use cases for biometrics,” said Konstantin Simonchik, Chief Scientific Officer at ID R&D. “Our modern voice biometric algorithms consistently push the limits of what’s possible on voice-enabled devices in terms of size, speed, performance, and convenience. As voice becomes the de facto standard for interacting with everything from our televisions to our cars, biometrics emerge as the most convenient way to quickly identify users for security and personalization.”

The algorithms used to achieve the device unlock results will be incorporated into the next release of IDVoice. ID R&D also recently announced out-of-the -box voice biometrics support for small, ultra-low powered hardware such as NPUs.

A new whitepaper, “Voice Biometric Revolution: Why Voice ID Is Now Secure Enough for Device Unlock,” provides more detail on the described advances and the impact on the user experience. Learn more about ID R&D’s voice biometric products at
