Annual Edward Hersey and Gordon Lees Exhibition Returns to York Fine Arts

York’s newest fine art exhibition features work from two of today’s leading landscape artists.

York, United Kingdom, October 18, 2017 –(PR.com)– York Fine Arts is delighted to announce its highly anticipated annual Edward Hersey and Gordon Lees exhibition. The exhibition brings together an exceptional collection of original paintings from two leading British artists whose work consistently captures and preserves the classic charm of Britain’s most beloved towns and landscapes.

For the discerning collector or first time buyer, the exhibition is a chance to view an exclusive collection of work from two of the gallery’s most recognised artists. From Edward Hersey’s warming, in situ farmhouses to Gordon Lees’ tranquil winter village scenes, the exhibition features a wide range of paintings to suit a variety of tastes.

Renowned for his distinct style and attention to the details of the British countryside, Edward Hersey has forged a loyal international following. Painting a fine line between realist and idealist, Hersey’s work reflects the rustic beauty of pastoral life with simultaneous subtlety and finesse. His application of mood and lighting has made him one of the most highly sought after traditional painters of his generation.

Nostalgically capturing the beauty of British landscapes and towns, Gordon Lees is an established international investment favourite. His romantic style enables him to capture the idyllic atmosphere of Britain’s towns and villages, and to reflect the traditional values of a rural England now so sadly missed. It is believed that Gordon’s work was the inspiration for the trademark village scenes of Thomas Kinkade, one of America’s most prolific artists, who recognised Gordon as “The Original Master of Light.” Following Kinkade’s passing in 2012, Gordon Lees’ work has shown a surge in transatlantic sales.

All paintings at the exhibition are available to purchase and range from £440 to £24,885. Included is the magnificent, specially commissioned “Riverside Farm” by Edward Hersey. A selection of signed limited edition prints by both artists is also available from £88.

For press enquiries or additional images, please telephone Deanna Dawkins on 01904 634221.

The exhibition opens on Friday, 17 November and runs until Sunday, 10 December 2017. Due to expected high volume of interest, an early viewing is recommended.

CeeLo Green to Perform Live at NACS Conference with +RED ELIXIR

CeeLo Green will provide visitors to the 2017 NACS Conference in Chicago with a special live performance on Wednesday October 18th, and viewers around the Globe will also be able to watch it live online thanks to +RED ELIXIR.

Chicago, IL, October 18, 2017 –(PR.com)– KNEKT TV, an award winning live streaming and broadcast production company with a digital tv network will be working with +RED ELIXIR & CeeLo Green to produce a live broadcast and special performance with the chart topping musician. The performance will be sent live to digital platforms such as Facebook and Youtube, and audiences with Apple TV & Roku will be able to watch the performance free on the +RED ELIXIR Channel on the KNEKT TV Network.

+RED ELIXIR is revolutionizing the functional beverage category with a new high-performance elixir that increases endurance, optimizes performance and elevates power levels naturally, with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners. For the second year in a row, CeeLo Green will be joining the NACS Show at the +RED ELIXIR Booth, but this time he will be performing and fans from around the globe will be able to participate. NACS is the convenience and fuel retailing industry’s premier event, attracting more than 23,000 people from around the globe.

“For the health conscious consumer, power in a can wasn’t nutritious. It wasn’t hydrating. It wasn’t natural,” said Michael Ball, CEO, +RED ELIXIR. “We spent a great deal of time researching Eastern philosophies and the healing botanicals used for centuries, and were drawn to the properties of red marine algae, a nutrient-rich ocean plant packed with vitamins, minerals, complete proteins and essential fatty acids. This therapeutic red super food became the catalyst for radical innovation, powering a precise combination of botanical ingredients, natural caffeine from green coffee bean, vegetable extracts, and a low glycemic sweetener that does not spike blood sugar and cause the fatiguing sugar crash.”

In 2007, Michael Ball, the creative force behind global brands Rock & Republic and pro cycling’s Rock Racing, embarked on a quest to fill a nutritional void in the beverage industry fueled by the performance demands of his two worlds – fashion and sports. As a fast-paced fashion industry CEO, he understood the toll of stress, long days, travel, little sleep, poor eating habits, and dehydration on the body. As the team owner of a men’s professional cycling team and a former track cyclist, he knew first-hand the physical punishment athletes endured and the depletion they felt on a daily basis. He watched as athletes and fashion executives alike reached for sugary, chemically caffeinated or artificially sweetened drinks to boost power levels.

“When I first learned of the natural, synergistic ingredients and how Eastern philosophies and healing botanicals were used in the +RED ELIXIR products I was excited to try them for myself,” says Kent Speakman, CEO & Producer, KNEKT TV. “KNEKT aims to improve the lives of our viewers with socially conscious content, with a large focus on health and wellness. These drinks hit the mark, and also taste great!”

KNEKT.tv is focused on improving the world by connecting audiences with shows that inspire, and bring awareness to social causes as well as enhancing and enriching the lives of its viewers with informative health and wellness content. Blending celebrity advocates and luxurious locations around the world to peak the audiences interest has connected millions of viewers to experiences and issues.

M-Theory Leverages CA Unified Infrastructure Management to Boost Service Levels of Private Cloud Anywhere, CapEx-as-a-Service Offerings

Los Angeles, CA, October 18, 2017 –(PR.com)– M-Theory today announced that it is leveraging CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM) to optimize service levels of its private cloud offerings.

Through its expertise and investments, M-Theory has established a unique, compelling set of services. The company’s CapEx-as-a-Service™ (CaaS™) offering represents a fundamentally different way for customers to acquire and use technology. Through this offering, M-Theory delivers fully customized, single-tenant private clouds – and it runs them wherever the customer wants. These private clouds represent complete IT infrastructures and environments that power mission-critical business services, including application development and delivery, unified communications and data center services.

From its headquarters in the Silicon Beach area of southern California, M-Theory serves customers across the country. The company operates a state-of-the-art data center facility that has been audited for compliance with SSAE 16 and SOC 2, type II standards. In addition, M-Theory has partner data center facilities in Atlanta, Dallas, Miami, New Jersey and New York.

When they sign on for CaaS offerings, customers rely on M-Theory to support their most critical business services. Consequently, it was essential that the private clouds M-Theory manages deliver optimized service levels and high availability at all times. Achieving these objectives had been a challenge for the team at M-Theory in recent years, however.

To meet their business and service level objectives, M-Theory sought to employ a new monitoring platform that would address a couple key requirements:

· They needed a solution that would provide intelligent event management and threshold customization so they could minimize alert “noise,” while ensuring critical events were always detected and acted upon.
· Their monitoring platform had to deliver comprehensive monitoring coverage so they could track any systems and services that customers’ business-critical services relied upon, including converged infrastructures, networks, telecommunications equipment, power supplies, servers and applications.

Given the criticality of service levels, and the monitoring platforms they use to manage them, the operations team at M-Theory went through a rigorous examination of solutions available.

Over the course of a year, staff evaluated many solutions, doing lengthy proof-of-concept trials and integration testing. Through this process, CA and the CA UIM solution emerged as the clear winners.

“CA UIM was unique in its ability to address all our key requirements,” explained Chant Vartanian, M-Theory Founder and CEO. “With CA UIM, our operations teams can intelligently manage event data so they can immediately spot issues and address them. In addition, they can gain the insights they need to preempt issues before they occur, so our customers’ business users always receive the availability and responsiveness they need.”

With its comprehensive coverage and intelligent event management capabilities, CA UIM is helping M-Theory enhance service levels, improve operational efficiency and boost the agility of its customers and its business. Plus, with CA UIM, M-Theory will be able to optimize responsiveness and availability of the private cloud environments it manages, helping ensure they deliver the quality services that boost customer sales, satisfaction and retention.
