A blues music tribute to the famous Johnny Winter at the Cannery In Las Vegas August 2014

We recently had the opportunity to see a tribute to the late great Johnny Winter at the Cannery Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The tribute bands were Edgar Winter’s band, Rare Earth, Vanilla Fudge and Rick Derringer formerly of the Real McCoy’s. Though the music was slightly before my time,  it was still an excellent event. Here are 4 youtube videos from the event. Please check them out, and tell others as well.

We won the tickets to the concert from Beasly Broadcasting in Las Vegas after I donated a small amount to the Children’s miracle network.

It is good karma to help others and in this case we won the tickets. I appreciate it. Please donate to them to help in their efforts to help children.

LAS VEGAS, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — AT&T* has invested nearly $200 million in its best-in-class wireless and wired networks in the Las Vegas area between 2011 through 2013, driving a wide range of upgrades to enhance speed, reliability, coverage and performance for residents and business customers.

Advancing its Project Velocity IP (VIP), an investment plan to expand and enhance its wireless and wired IP broadband networks, AT&T in 2013 made more than 100 network upgrades in the Las Vegas area, including new cell sites, addition of wireless network capacity, and new broadband network connections.

“Las Vegas residents depend on our fast and reliable Internet connections more and more every day, whether it’s instant access to files and apps at work, watching a video at home, or even receiving updates from connected cars or home monitors,” said Stephanie Tyler, president of AT&T Nevada. “AT&T is making robust investments locally to make sure that residents can take full advantage of the latest services and tools, and that businesses have the speed they need to compete and grow.”

A video overview of the Phazzer Scorpion at The Las Vegas Sportsman’s Expo 3-3-13.

While at the Las Vegas Sportsman’s expo, I had the opportunity to meet John Smith with Phazzer. They are:

PhaZZer® Electronics, Inc. manufactures and distributes Conductive Energy Weapons (CEWs), High Voltage Multi-Function Drive Stun Devices, and Mini-DVR Recording Devices. PhaZZer Conductive Energy Weapons (CEWs) are an industry standard in Global Government Law Enforcement Agencies, Military Divisions, and Operator End Users.

PhaZZer® Enforcer and Dragon CEWs are similar in effectiveness to the Taser X26®, Taser M26®, and Taser M18®, Electronic Control Devices (ECDs). PhaZZer® Ammunition is compatible with all Taser X26®, Taser M26® & Taser M18® ECDs. PhaZZer offers six variations of ammunition cartridges including: Dart Pro 15 foot; Dart Pro 21 foot; PepperBall® 30 foot; Rubber Bullet 30 foot; Paint Ball Mark 30 foot; Multi-Target Pepper Powder 8 foot and Training Cartridge 21 foot.

PhaZZer CEWs use replaceable cartridges containing compressed nitrogen to deploy two small dart probes attached to insulated conductive wires that extend from 15 feet for civilians (4.5 meter) and up to 21 feet (6.4 meter) for LAW ENFORCEMENT ONLY. High voltage carries low amperage through the wires into the dart probes. The pulsed electro shock can penetrate up to two cumulative inches of clothing, giving you a safe, convenient, and effective self-defense weapon you can carry with confidence as a less lethal option. The charge transmits between the two probes into the body, interrupting sensory and motor functions to inhibit muscular control. This Neural Muscular Incapacitation (NMI) effect continues in 5 second cycles. Each time you pull the trigger, the cycle begins again, ultimately shutting down after the third trigger application. This new safety feature complies with numerous medical studies from the American Academy of Emergency Medicine advising physicians to consider additional treatment for individuals experiencing a CEW application of 15 seconds or more.

PhaZZer established a CEW Training Facility in Fort Myers, Florida, with the goal of ensuring our end user operators are thoroughly trained according to standard suggested usage. The Operator’s Training Program has been developed in order to instruct the user on proper CEW deployment. Our program features CEW characteristics, capabilities, operational safety principles and procedures. We also provide an Operator’s Training and Certification Manual that covers important information such as health effects, precautions, and equipment maintenance.

Phazzer Brand products are not only on the cutting edge, but are also made of only the highest quality components. Not only have we built in (mA) milli amperes into all our stun products for superior takedown capability, but also top quality Grade A Batteries for better performance. Our handheld stun guns all share an upgraded Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery which provides a substantial advantage over our competitors still using the Nickel Cadmium systems. Our Dragon air stun gun is fitted with a Grade A, Lithium Ion Battery which is the best money can buy. Our Phazzer Dragon out lasts even our toughest competitors.

Each product comes with the ability to be re-charged in the comfort of your own home. We also utilize “circuit disconnect ripcord technology” in most of our products as a STANDARD safety feature. This feature allows added peace of mind knowing that if your Phazzer product is ever taken from you in the event of an attack by an assailant, the unit is deactivated and rendered useless. These are just a few of the reasons Phazzer is the name being sought after by more people each day. Because we know our products are developed with the highest quality components we offer a full one year warranty. If any of our products fail to fulfill your expectations we will replace it with a brand new unit no questions asked.

GIVING AUTISM A VOICE: Funding should be geared more for quality of life-Pahrump Valley times

GIVING AUTISM A VOICE: Funding should be geared more for quality of life
GIVING AUTISM A VOICE: Funding should be geared more for quality of life

http://pvtimes.com/community/giving-autism-a-voice-funding-should-be-geared-more-for-quality-of-life/

We were in the Pahrumnp Valley Times news paper today, A mention on the front page as well as on the front of the community section as well.

Here is a copy of the article–>

By Kelsey Givens
One in every 88.
That’s the alarming rate in which children in the United States today are being diagnosed with autism, according to the National Autism Association.
People in every state, city and community are seeing the effects of this developmental disability.
Not everyone touched by it, however, has the financial ability to go out and purchase items to better the lives of individuals living with it.
Knowing the affects of the condition first-hand, one man is trying, with the help of investors, to get his nonprofit up and running in order to actively place technology and the arts in the hands of disadvantaged families with autistic children and young adults.
David Berkowitz, a Las Vegas native, has Asperger’s Syndrome, a high-functioning form of autism, and three children who have also been diagnosed with some degree of autism as well.
A retired veteran currently working in sales, he started his foundation, Autism Advocacy and Technology News Zone, last year with the hope of raising money to buy and donate technology, music and the arts to families and schools working to educate and better the lives of people with autism.
“As an individual with high-functioning Asperger syndrome and the father of three kids who are also on the spectrum for this disorder, I have always felt a need to make a difference for people with autism,” Berkowitz said in a statement.
“As we get funded we intend to help those on the autism spectrum by giving the gift of the arts and technology to make the lives of people with autism better, and to support their families and the educational facilities that serve them. We are determined to make a difference in the lives of people with autism and their families,” he said.
According to the National Autism Association, autism is a “bio-neurological developmental disability.”
Generally appearing before the age of 3, this condition generally affects the development of areas in the brain which control social interactions, communication and cognitive development.
The NAA states autism is four times as likely to affect males as females, and 40 percent of children diagnosed with the disability typically don’t speak.
Sadly, the association also reports that while autism has become one of the fastest growing developmental disorders in the nation, it is also one of the most severely underfunded.
While some organizations exist to raise funds for the study of how autism affects people, Berkowitz said he wants to focus more on helping enrich these individuals’ lives.
“Were trying to help create an autism foundation for quality of life and education because no one is really doing it,” he said.
Berkowitz explained items like iPads, other electronic tablets and musical instruments are very kinesthetic devices, which make learning much easier for those on the autism spectrum.
He hopes by being able to provide these types of learning tools to families and schools, he can help enrich the lives of those with autism, while also giving them another way to communicate and interact with the people and world around them.
“A lot of families with autistic kids aren’t rich, they can’t afford to just go out and buy these things,” Berkowitz said.
And by introducing more music and the arts to people with autism, Berkowitz said he believes it may be possible for these kids to find an easier way of expressing themselves or finding a talent they would have never known they had.
“Half the time you don’t even know if they could succeed in these areas and don’t have the money to even give them the chance,” he said.
By gaining funding through partnerships and donations, Berkowitz wants to not only purchase the tools but possibly sponsor activities such as artist meet and greets, free concert tickets or special events to help raise awareness for autism.
Lack of money is keeping the dream from becoming reality.
“The first help we need is funding for the 501(c)(3), as well as a lawyer or CPA to do the paperwork properly. We also need exposure such as TV, in the newspaper, magazines and web-based as well. We can not do it alone and need support to make a real difference,” Berkowitz writes on his website.
“What we really need is for some other organization or company to partner with us so we can get the accreditation. There’s not much we can do until we can get that and it’s expensive.”
Berkowitz said it can cost thousands to become an accredited organization.
“I’m not rich, I can’t just go out and pay for this myself,” he said. “We have to start somewhere, and maybe by reaching out to the community someone will be willing to help us.”
While the organization seems to be hitting a wall in the way of funding, it isn’t for lack of trying.
Berkowitz has gone on several news shows, Internet radio shows and use of social media in an attempt to get the word out about what he is trying to do.
“There are a lot of people spreading the word about us on Twitter, and we’ve been featured on SpecialNeeds.com,” he said.
While the name of the organization is continuously put out there, “it has been a struggle to reach people able to help,” Berkowitz said.
Currently Autism Advocacy and Technology News Zone have a board of only two people; Berkowitz and his wife Michele. But Berkowitz said he knows several people that have said they would join once the group is accredited.
The group is based out of Las Vegas, where Berkowitz lives, but he said he doesn’t want to be limited to helping only those in the city. He wants to reach out to all surrounding area families as well, areas like Pahrump, to be able to help families dealing with autism.
“Autism affects you socially, and my family understands that, we’re living those lives ourselves,” Berkowitz said.
“I am smart, different and am going about it on my own; I need support so that I can help other people with autism,” he said.
The foundation currently had its own website technewszone.com.
Anyone interested in donating to the organization or trying to help them reach their goal of becoming a certified 501(c)(3) can go there for more information.
Berkowitz can also be reached by email for more information on how you can help at davidb@technewszone.com.

I appreciate it a great deal!!!
