ANAHEIM, Calif. (PRWEB) January 16, 2020
Yamaha today showcased STORIA, a series of three acoustic-electric guitars that are as fashionable as they are enjoyable to play. Designed with beginning and potential players in mind, their inviting body contours, slim necks, comfortable string height, and smooth fingerboard edges make them easy to pick up and play when inspiration arises, while at the same time their stylish color combinations make visual statements that enhance any living space.
STORIA Series guitars are more than simply attractive instruments for beginners, however. In addition to their appealing finishes, tasteful inlay work, and champagne gold tuners, they feature superb workmanship, solid tops, brass bridge pins, and Yamaha® SRT passive undersaddle pickups, which provide a warm and natural-sounding acoustic tone when the guitars are amplified. All three STORIA models have FS (Concert) body shapes with mahogany backs and sides, nato necks with walnut fingerboards, urea nuts and saddles, and 25″ scale lengths. Complementary inside colors and sound hole inlays complete the designs.
STORIA I has a solid Sitka spruce top with an off-white semi-gloss finish and ivory body binding. The mahogany back and sides have a natural finish, the inside is light blue and the rosette is inlaid with ivory and mahogany. The guitar has a clear yet rich sound.
STORIA II has a solid mahogany top with a natural semi-gloss finish and a 3/16″ (5mm) beveled edge. The mahogany back and sides also have a natural finish, the inside is ultramarine and the rosette is inlaid with ivory and abalone. The mahogany top, sides, and back give the guitar a warm yet well-balanced sound.
STORIA III has a solid mahogany top with a chocolate-brown gloss finish and black body binding. The mahogany back and sides also have a chocolate-brown finish, the inside is wine red and the rosette has ivory, red wine, and black inlays. The mahogany top, sides, and back give the guitar a warm yet well-balanced sound.
“There is a segment of today’s younger generation that craves an outlet for creativity and self-expression without aspiring to be the next guitar hero,” said Shannon McKee, product marketing manager, Yamaha Guitar Group. “STORIA answers that need with aesthetically-pleasing guitars that appeal to fashion-conscious, casual new players.”
All STORIA guitars include a one-month subscription to FourChords, a guitar-learning app for iOS® and Android® that offers chord charts, lyrics, backing tracks, tutorials, and a tuner.

Shyft offers a mobile-first, best-in-class experience for today’s mobile-native hourly workers.

Shyft stands as a leader for both younger generation management ideas and tech design for 2020.

Shyft will provide NRF attendees the opportunity to see how their user-first mobile design drives end-user engagement.

User1st Joins UN Commemoration of International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Showcases Technologies for Increasing Digital Accessibility of Employment Opportunities

“User1st supports and joins the United Nations’ commitment to creating pathways for tangible change for persons with disabilities,” said Amihai Miron, co-founder and CEO of User1st.

NEW YORK (PRWEB) December 04, 2019
User1st, the provider of the most innovative web accessibility solutions on the market, yesterday participated in the United Nations’ (UN) annual observance of its International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Invited to UN headquarters for the event, User1st showcased its digital accessibility software solutions that help make websites and mobile apps more accessible to persons with disabilities. The theme of this year’s event – increasing employment opportunities for persons with disabilities – strikes at the core of any discussion about workplace diversity and inclusion.
“User1st supports and joins the United Nations’ commitment to creating pathways for tangible change for persons with disabilities,” said Amihai Miron, co-founder and CEO of User1st. “Employment for persons with disabilities is a paramount issue of inclusion, and organizations can benefit from a larger talent pool of candidates by making their digital environments accessible to everyone, regardless of ability. To attract the most diverse and qualified pool of job applicants – and unlock the vast talents and energies of persons with disabilities – digital accessibility is imperative.”
According to The Brookings Institution, only 40% of working-age adults with disabilities have a job – a rate that is about half that of persons without disabilities. Nearly 30 years after the passage of the American with Disabilities Act, the largest group of unemployed Americans is still persons with disabilities.
Recent court decisions have propelled forward the issue of online accessibility of employment opportunities. DISH Network recently agreed to pay $1.25 million to settle claims that it maintained an inaccessible process of job applications. Earlier this year, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Texas settled a lawsuit alleging that a job applicant with a hearing impairment was not able to complete the company’s application process. The process included an assessment with an audio portion that did not contain captions or other accommodations.
The UN’s annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992 by UN General Assembly resolution 47/3. It aims to promote the rights and well-being of persons with disabilities in all spheres of society and development, and to increase awareness of the situation of persons with disabilities in every aspect of political, social, economic and cultural life.
About User1stUser1st provides the most advanced web accessibility solutions on the market for testing, remediation, monitoring and compliance. User1st is the only company that offers both customized short-term fixes and tailored long-term solutions for meeting the international specifications of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Trusted by organizations of all sizes, including Fortune 500 companies and large government organizations, User1st’s solutions are deployed in a variety of industries worldwide, including financial services, retail, government and healthcare.

Onica Showcases Advanced Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, and Machine Learning Capabilities at AWS re:Invent 2019

With IoTanium Cloud and the IoTanium Developer Kit, we’re excited to help developers increase efficiencies and drive actual business value from their applications.

LAS VEGAS (PRWEB) December 02, 2019
Onica, a Premier Consulting Partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network (APN) and AWS Managed Service Provider (MSP), announced today the launch of IoTanium Cloud, a collection of AWS CloudFormation resources that ease and accelerate the deployment of, and time to insight from Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The cloud native services provider boasts over 500 AWS certifications and 9 AWS Competencies, offering a full spectrum of cloud capabilities.
Onica has differentiated itself in the APN with their ability to accelerate the innovative capabilities of the cloud such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Big Data, and IoT. At AWS re:Invent 2018, Onica launched a proprietary IoTanium Developer Kit, which provided physical IoT hardware to help customers quickly prototype connected devices. IoTanium Cloud, the next evolution of Onica’s IoTanium suite, is a cloud configuration tool that is designed to codify best practices in building a serverless IoT backend on AWS to easily create serverless ingestion pipelines, device monitoring metrics, and accelerate data flow from IoT devices. Developers can gain preview access to IoTanium Cloud before it launches in AWS Marketplace starting on Monday, December 2nd at Onica.com/IoTaniumCloud.
Onica’s IoT, AI, and ML capabilities will be on full display at AWS re:Invent 2019 as Onica has developed a hands-on interactive lab for attendees to work with the IoTanium Developer Kit and IoTanium Cloud. The Onica.create(AI.Magic) experience will guide attendees through the hardware assembly of an IoT-enabled ‘magic wand.’ Participants will then leverage Amazon SageMaker to train wand gestures. After testing their models, their complete IoT experience can be realized as they use the ‘Magic Wand’ to navigate a ‘Wizard’ through a virtual maze using only the gestures trained into their magic wand. All participants who successfully complete the lab within the 30-minute time limit will take home their own IoTanium DevKit. The Onica.create(AI.Magic) lab can be found at AWS re:Invent 2019 in the Quad at ARIA, Booth 508. To learn more, please visit onica.com/reinvent.
The IoTanium Developer Kit along with IoTanium Cloud is designed to provide customers an opportunity to prototype IoT-enabled applications quickly and painlessly, letting them leverage the full suite of AWS analytics services for device data. IoTanium allows customers to spend more time focused on the business value of IoT applications, rather than the undifferentiated heavy lifting of connectivity, charging, provisioning, device management, and security.
“With more than 25 billion connected devices in use by 2021, it’s critical that developers have access to the tools and services that will give their IoT applications a competitive edge,” said Tolga Tarhan, Chief Technology Officer at Onica. “With IoTanium Cloud and the IoTanium Developer Kit, we’re excited to help developers increase efficiencies and drive actual business value from their applications.”
Earlier this year, Onica announced it had agreed to be acquired by Rackspace. The acquisition brings Onica’s innovative professional services and strategic advisory expertise including application and infrastructure modernization, serverless development, containers, and IoT to the Rackspace portfolio, complementing its existing managed cloud services capabilities.
AWS re:Invent 2019 takes place from December 2-6 in Las Vegas. The Onica.create(AI.Magic) lab can be found at AWS re:Invent 2019 in the Quad at ARIA, Booth 508. To learn more about the Onica.create(AI.Magic) lab, please visit onica.com/reinvent.
