VisualSP Keeps Pace With SharePoint Server 2019 Release

VisualSP Help System for SharePoint 2019

Latest iteration of the VisualSP Help System for SharePoint end-users provides a modern experience in addition to its classic version

We have one unified VisualSP for all flavors of SharePoint going forward…online, on-premises, modern view, classic view—whatever version an enterprise deploys.”

— VisualSP CEO Asif Rehmani

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, February 11, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Microsoft modernized its SharePoint experience through a GA release in 2018, and per the tech giant: “The modern experience is designed to be compelling, flexible, mobile, and easier to use.”

Accordingly, VisualSP—a leading user adoption and support provider for enterprise platforms—helps ensure SharePoint users can navigate the new interface and perform tasks easily without leaving the workspace.

“We have one unified VisualSP for all flavors of SharePoint going forward,” said VisualSP CEO Asif Rehmani. “Online, on-premises, modern view, classic view—whatever version an enterprise deploys.”

To support the range of interfaces presented by SharePoint 2019 and other recent versions, VisualSP has pursued innovation every step of the way. The Help System provides an always-relevant panel along the edge of every page, offering instant help and guidance to SharePoint and Office 365 end-users exactly at the moment of need. Not only does this help with onboarding new users, VisualSP also reduces the support ticket workload on the IT team.

The VisualSP Help System can be licensed per user for Office 365 instances or per web front-end (WFE) for on-premises situations. Typically deployed as a provider-hosted solution, organizations with restrictive privacy or security policies can deploy the Help System behind their firewall.

While many companies deploy SharePoint successfully, most struggle with making sure that employees actually adopt the platform, reducing the overall return on investment.

The award-winning VisualSP system lowers the users’ barrier to entry by creating a Help tab that follows users around. It coaches users by providing access to native or custom created content including short videos, annotated screenshots, PDF tip-sheets, step-by-step walk-thrus and more. This contextually based content allows users to easily complete daily tasks without searching for assistance. The learn-by-doing approach embedded in VisualSP effortlessly promotes organic and sustainable user adoption throughout the organization.

“Companies that have already achieved a certain breadth and depth of user adoption tend to leverage the power of VisualSP to help ensure other essential objectives, such as better governance, data security, and regulatory compliance", adds Rehmani.

"When talking to our customers, one thing we hear is their need to stay in front of the innovation curve. That's why we always start working on upgrades way before a new version of SharePoint is released…We believe it is this kind of commitment that is allowing us to expand our customer base rapidly", says Rehmani.

When it comes to training end-users, Rehmani adds, “Training programs may help get things started, but when it comes to increasing and sustaining an appropriate usage level, their effectiveness is very limited". The reasons for prioritizing a context-sensitive help system over training programs is explained further in this article.

Already deployed in over 200 enterprises, VisualSP now serves more than 2 million users. To see how it works, explore a live demo here.

Advice from a medical doctor when a family member suffers from a medical condition by Dr. Matthew Bogard

“What can I do?” is a frequent question for those supporting a loved one with illness. Medical Dr. Matthew Bogard provides advice based on his experience.

Mathew Bogard, MD (N/A:N/A)

Doctors understand that you have a lot on your mind when caring for a sick loved one, and below is a list of things to do to support your friends and family when they are suffering.”

— Matthew Bogard, MD

OMAHA, NEBRASKA, UNITED STATES, February 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — We humans are social beings, and nobody lives completely isolated from family, friends, or society. Matthew Bogard, MD, shares his experiences in a new article, which is available on his blog at https://matthewbogardmd.blogspot.com/

Dealing with illness is a challenge for the affected patient and everyone close to the patient. While disease can strike at any time and usually comes unannounced, seeing a person close to you suffering from a medical condition can be incredibly exhausting for many reasons. First and foremost, as social beings, we tend to empathize. We feel, or want to feel, what the person next to us is experiencing as a way to burden ourselves with some of their suffering.

Not only are you preoccupied with worrying about how the treatment will progress, but you’re also left wondering about all the possible complications and unknowns, as well as the different ways you might offer your love and support to your friends and family during these trying times.

Doctors understand that you have a lot on your mind when caring for a sick loved one, and below is a list of things to do to support your friends and family when they are suffering.

Acceptance – If you’re like most people, it’s hard time to wrap your head around the fact that your loved one may not be in the best of health. With that said, however, accepting the situation and coming to terms with the fact that your loved ones are going through a tough time is the best way to ensure that you’ll be able to provide them with the support and love that they need during a difficult phase in their lives.

If you’re too preoccupied worrying about all that could have been done to prevent such a situation from arising in the first place, chances are that you won’t be able to provide your friends or family with the love and support that they need most when they are suffering from a serious illness, condition or disease. By accepting the situation, you can focus on ways to be present and cater to their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.

Love is the answer – The psychological aspect of serious and life-threatening injuries and diseases can never be overemphasized. It is common for patients to, at some point, begin to feel like they are burdening their friends and loved ones.

It is easy for patients to feel like they are troubling those around them too much or be concerned that you do not want to spend time with them any longer. Demonstrating to your sick friends and family your unconditional love in these testing times is your best way to ensure they do not only feel valued, but also know that they have a support system that they can count on when the going gets tough.

Whether you can help by preparing meals at home or making handmade cards, leave no stone unturned when it comes to making your loved one feel better.

Keep them company – A common complaint of patients suffering from serious illnesses – especially when they are elderly – is that they feel lonely. Being present for your loved one is a tangible way of showing that you care.

Guangzhou Hosts Spring Festival Flower Fair Carnival at Columbia University

Local industry leaders present at the Chinese New Year celebration

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, February 10, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Guangzhou, one of China's leading metropolitan cities, hosted Spring Festival Flower Fair Carnival and Guangzhou Story Forum on the campus of Columbia University in New York on Feb 2nd.

Since ancient times, it has always been the unique way for people to enjoy the festive atmosphere of Guangzhou Spring Festival in the lively flower Fair and the fragrant flower sea. Guangzhou opened its first Overseas Flower Fair, the first stop of the Global Roadshow, and moved it into the Grand Palace in Paris in the Spring Festival in 2018, a year of the Guangzhou International Communication Year as well as the Urban International Brands Promotion Year. This year marks the 40th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States. On February 2nd, 2019, US East Coast Time, Guangzhou Spring Festival Overseas Flower Fair with the theme of "Encounter Columbia University – Guangzhou Spring Festival Overseas Flower Fair Carnival and Guangzhou Story Forum" flew over the Pacific Ocean, entering the Columbia University campus in New York, making an appearance in front of elite students from all over the world and New Yorkers, and presenting the original Cantonese-style New Year culture and the urban culture of Guangzhou, a thousand-year-old city.

Guangzhou Spring Festival Overseas Flower Fair is an important part of the “Celebrating Chinese New Year in Guangzhou, enjoying fair flowers in Flower City” series sponsored by the Propaganda Department of Guangzhou Municipal Committee and organized by the Guangzhou Flower Fair Office annually. It is also one of the global roadshow activities in the Year of Guangzhou International Communication and the Year of Urban International Brands Promotion 2019.

When the tradition met with youth, this year's overseas flower Fair was full of youthful elements. Chinese and foreign elite students shared their "Twin City Story" of Guangzhou and New York on the spot. They danced to “Flower Dance” and flipped through Tik Tok in the field, learning the Chinese translation of "Appreciating flowers in Guangzhou" and “Eating in Guangzhou”, recognizing various dim sum and playing interactive games such as winning a lucky draw. This is a “New Year Dialogue” between two world first-tier cities, and a “cultural dialogue” between Chinese and foreign elite students, which allowed more international friends to have a deeper understanding of Guangzhou and China.

Guangzhou and New York are two cosmopolitan coastal cities in China and the US . In the 2018 world-class city roster published by GaWC, one of the world's most authoritative world city research institution. Guangzhou and New York are among the world's first-tier cities. From the 1880s, Guangzhou and New York are inextricably connected in trade transactions, talent exchanges, educational cooperation and urban development. Since the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and the United States, especially in recent years, there has been closer cultural and economic exchanges between Guangzhou and New York. In 2016, Guangzhou Port established a friendly port cooperation relationship with New York and New Jersey Port. In 2017, Guangzhou “Fortune” Global Forum Promotion Conference was held in New York, USA. In the same year, Guangzhou City Image Promotion film under the name of “Flowers of Guangzhou, blossom in the world” appeared in Times Square, New York, USA, to showcase the city's charm as an international center of communication at the "World Crossroads". In 2018, New York won the fourth Guangzhou International City Innovation Award. The University of Columbia, the venue of Guangzhou Overseas Spring Festival Flower Fair, has cultivated a large number of celebrities who are active in various social stages. From the thinker Hu Shi, the politician Gu Weijun, the philosopher Feng Youlan, and the poet Xu Zhimo from a hundred years ago to today’s well-known host Yang Lan and so on, they have all studied here.

The Overseas Flower Fair event invited local New Yorkers and elite students studying in New York from all over the world. The "Ode to Flower City" promotional film recorded by the Guangzhou Daily Group also joined the annual Spring Festival Gala program hosted by the China Federation of Students and Scholars (CSSA), allowing friends around the globe to enjoy the rich taste of Guangzhou Spring Festival. It was another link between Guangzhou and New York as well as a “New Year Dialogue” between the two world first-tier cities.

Spring Festival Flower Fair is a traditional folk custom in Guangzhou. It is also an annual folk festival that rings out the Old Year and rings in the New Year. The “Celebrating Chinese New Year in Guangzhou, enjoying fair flowers in Flower City” series have been held annuaully since 2013. After years of cultivation and development, it has now become an important festival event for Guangzhou citizens and even tourists from other places during the Spring Festival. It is a significant city cultural business card of Guangzhou, the Flower City.

While suspension or revocation of driving privileges is a serious and potentially life altering event, exploring all available options can minimize the impact.

The Law Office of Attorney Janet Pittman Reed (N/A:N/A)

While suspension or revocation of driving privileges is a serious and potentially life altering event, working with a qualified attorney to explore all available options can minimize the impact”

— Janet Reed, North Carolina lawyer

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, February 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new overview published by North Carolina lawyer Janet P. Reed provides an overview of restoring driving privileges in North Carolina. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Janet Reed at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

Reinstatement of driving privileges in North Carolina may come after either a suspension or a revocation. If a driver’s license is suspended for a set period of time, then restoration is relatively straightforward. After the suspension is over, the driver must go to the DMV and pay the applicable fees to have their driving privileges reinstated. There may be an additional fee if the suspension stems from a Driving While Impaired conviction. There may also be suspension of an indefinite period, typically a result of some other violation such as failure to appear in court, failure to pay a fine, or back owed child support. These require the resolution of the underlying issue before the license can be reinstated. Certain offenses which carries a lengthy suspension period may allow the driver to petition for reinstatement prior to end the length of the entire suspension.

The process is more complicated for reinstatement after revocation of driving privileges. In such situations, a DMV hearing or a hearing in front of an administrative law judge may be required. The amount of time that must pass in order for the driver to be eligible for a hearing depends on the underlying reason for the revocation.

It may be advisable to retain an attorney for reinstatement hearings, particularly after a revocation due to multiple DWI offenses. Just like a court hearing, petitioner will need to provide witnesses and evidence to support their case. An experienced attorney can help ensure that the petitioner prepare and present a strong case for reinstatement.

Individuals whose license has been suspended or revoked may also petition for limited driving privileges. Limited driving privileges permit the driver to drive under specified restrictions such as when and where the driver may drive. The purpose of such exception is to allow the driver to drive when it is necessary for things such as employment, education, medical care, or religious worship. The specific requirements for obtaining limited driving privilege will depend on individual circumstances. Violation of the conditions of limited driving privilege is a serious offense and is a class 1 misdemeanor.

Ms. Reed concludes that "while suspension or revocation of driving privileges is a serious and potentially life altering event, working with a qualified attorney to explore all available options can minimize the impact of such suspension or revocation."

San José – Evergreen CCD Program Wins 2019 Bellwether Award

The Bellwether Award is a great honor and recognizes the truly innovative nature of this approach.”

— Dr. Byron D. Clift Breland, SJECCD chancellor.

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Silicon Valley Career Pathways, a partnership between San Jose – Evergreen Community College District’s (SJECCD) Center for Economic Mobility and Metropolitan Education District, was named winner of the 2019 Bellwether Award in the category of Planning, Governance, and Finance during the annual Community College Futures Assembly this week in San Antonio.

The Bellwether Awards, which are presented in three categories—Instructional Programs and Services; Planning, Governance, and Finance; and Workforce Development—are widely regarded as the nation’s most competitive and prestigious recognition awards for community colleges. They are designed to identify outstanding and innovative programs which can then be shared and implemented as best practices at other colleges.

Out of hundreds of Bellwether Award submissions received annually, only ten programs are selected as finalists for each category. Those ten finalists then present information on their submitted programs at the Futures Assembly, where they are competitively judged by a panel of community college faculty, staff, and administrators. Programs are judged on a variety of factors, including replicability and scalability.

Led by Alexandra Duran, dean of workforce and economic development with SJECCD, Silicon Valley Career Pathways project is designed to create career pathway programs that are aligned to high-need, high-growth, or emerging regional economic sectors. As Northern California’s largest network of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and career programs, Silicon Valley Career Pathways has a goal of strengthening collaboration between education and industry, preparing students with fundamental STEM competencies, and encouraging students at every level to pursue high-demand careers.

“Silicon Valley Career Pathways is fundamentally changing the way educational entities interact with industry partners to prepare students for 21st century careers,” according to Dr. Byron D. Clift Breland, SJECCD chancellor. “The Bellwether Award is a great honor and recognizes the truly innovative nature of this approach.”

The primary objective of Silicon Valley Career Pathways is the development of a technology employee pipeline comprised of local students. “In a region where a majority of residents are from traditionally underrepresented populations, less than 12 percent of the STEM workforce is comprised of employees from these groups,” said Dr. William Watson, executive director of strategic partnerships and workforce innovation with SJECCD’s Center for Economic Mobility. “This program helps diversify the tech workforce while creating more opportunity for more local students. This works to mitigate the growing economic inequity in our region.”

In addition to Silicon Valley Career Pathways, two other SJECCD programs were selected as finalists for the Bellwether Awards, including Evergreen Valley College’s (EVC) “EVC to San Jose State University Registered Nursing to Bachelor of Science in Nursing Collaborative,” which was a finalist in the Instructional Programs and Services category, and San Jose City College’s “Technest” program, which was selected as a finalist in the Workforce Development category.

“It is unheard of for a single District to have three programs selected as finalists and the fact that we were chosen in every category illustrates the outstanding and innovative work taking place within our District,” said Chancellor Clift Breland.

The Bellwether College Consortium, which created the Bellwether Award, is a group of colleges charged with addressing the critical issues facing community colleges through applicable research and the promotion and replication of best practices.

Austin Massage Academy Adds Couples Massage To Student Massage Clinic Offering

A Couples Massage in Austin, Texas allows clients to get a custom massage therapy session for two at the same time, reducing time and increasing connection.

By adding couples massage to our student massage clinic menu the Austin Massage Academy will provide opportunities for students to obtain skills and fulfill a need for great massage care.”

— Xue Wang

AUSTIN, TX, US, February 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Austin Massage Academy announced today that it will be offering Austin couples massage to its current offerings in its student massage clinic.

“The Austin Massage Academy trains students to become licensed massage therapists and, as part of that process, students must perform massages on the public to get their massage certification. By adding couples massage to our student massage clinic menu the Austin Massage Academy will provide more opportunities for students to obtain the skills they require and help fulfill a need of the community for great massage care”, said Xue Wang, Director of Therapy Instruction.

The Austin Massage Academy has a student massage clinic that is open to the public. The typical massage sessions run for 60-minutes and are priced lower when compared to most massage establishments. An Austin Couples Massage by definition is when two people are in the same massage therapy treatment room during the same appointment. Each massage client has their own massage therapist assigned to treat each person’s particular needs in terms of massage pressure and concentration of particular massage muscles ailments. Couples each have their own needs when they go to a massage therapist, so having a particular need met by an individual massage therapist is a crucial part to a couples massage. The main benefit of a couples massage is to allow two individuals wanting to get massage therapy to have their appointment occur simultaneously. The couples massage session also allows a connection to occur whereby each massage client can have a shared experience in a relaxing environment. By having each massage occur at the same time in the same room the massage experience will also conclude at the exact same time, reducing the waiting time for the other at the massage’s completion.

Appointments for the student massage clinic in relation to a Couples Massage in Austin, Texas can be booked online at https://www.austinmassageacdemy.com/couples-massage at any time.

About the Austin Massage Academy:
The Austin Massage Academy was founded by two professionals, Xue Wang and Kevin Welling, with different life paths- one an immigrant and single mother that found her place and passion in the business of massage and the other an Ivy League MBA that grew up in Austin, Texas. They joined forces to create a massage instructional facility in Austin with a simple charter: to provide world-class instruction in both massage and the business of massage, while making it accessible, so that anyone can create a career of their own without being saddled by the burden of student debt.

“Understanding how money and marketing works is every bit as important as knowing Anatomy and Kinesiology to the success of someone entering a career in massage”, Welling said.

Do you think a friend or family member is suffering from depression? Dr. William L. Matzner has published some advice to get you started exploring that issue.

Healthcare Analytics, LLC (N/A:N/A)

If you notice someone around you showing these symptoms, you should talk to that person and make them share their problems with you.”

— Dr. William Matzner, California (Healthcare Analytics, LLC)

SIMI VALLEY, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Not everyone understands what depression is. People suffering from depression often refrain from addressing their problem because of the fear of being judged. You may think that a friend or loved one may be suffering from depression. Dr. William Matzner, MD, based in Simi Valley, California, provides his thoughts on this issue. The complete article is available on the Blog of Dr. Matzner at https://drwilliammatzner.blogspot.com

Identifying Signs of Depression in People Around You

This negative mindset in our society needs to be challenged by spreading mental health awareness all around us. Schools should focus on educating children about the importance of mental health and how excessive stress and anxiety can ruin a person’s mental well-being.

You should look for signs of depression in people near you and help them combat this serious mental health issue. We often ignore these signs in people thinking that they are overreacting on petty issues. We need to become more supportive and sympathetic towards people so that they can confide in us without thinking twice.

If you find anyone around you who is exhibiting these symptoms, talk to them and counsel them. Gain their trust and make them share their problems with you. This will help them in healing and coping with depression. You can also take them to a psychologist who can cure their depression through multiple counseling sessions.

Here are some of the signs that can help you in identifying people who are suffering from depression.

No Interest in Daily Activities

Look at the people around you. Do you notice someone who has no interest in their daily activities? Have they stopped enjoying things that they once found joy in? If there’s someone around you who has completely lost the feeling of joy and happiness, it means they are depressed.

A Huge Change in Weight

If someone around you has suddenly become too fat or too thin, it means they are not well. You should talk to them and figure out if they are suffering from depression. Ask them if their hunger has changed over time. They might be feeling more hungry than usual or they might have completely lost their appetite. Talk to them and find out if they are depressed.

Easily Triggered

People who are depressed easily get angry and frustrated over small issues. They find it difficult to control their temper and get irritated over everything. If a friend or a family member is displaying the same signs, it means they are suffering from depression.

Change in Sleeping Pattern

If you notice that one of your family members is facing difficulty in sleeping, you should get them checked by a psychiatrist. Depressed people either face trouble falling asleep (insomnia) or sleep too much. Look around yourself and if you find anyone who’s going through the same symptoms, talk to them about it.

Low Self-Worth and Hopelessness

People suffering with depression feel hopeless and think that nobody likes them. They exhibit low self-worth and develop an inferiority complex over time. They will blame themselves for everything that goes wrong around them and feel guilty for mistakes that they haven’t made in the first place.

Body Aches without Any Reason

An increased number of headaches, back pain, chest pain, stomach aches, and muscle pain without any reason are symptoms of depression. People suffering from depression face frequent body aches for no reason.

If you notice someone around you showing these symptoms, you should talk to that person and make them share their problems with you. When you talk to them, it will make them feel better and they will start thinking that someone out there cares about them. So, look out for these easily identifiable signs in people around you and help them cope with depression, suggests Dr. Matzner.

University of the Virgin Islands graduates

ST. THOMAS, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS, February 8, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Beginning with the 2019-2020 academic year, students who have graduated from secondary school in the U.S. Virgin Islands will have one less concern about their college careers: tuition payments.

That's because the Territory has adopted legislation to provide financial aid for tuition to residents of the Virgin Islands for post-secondary education at the University of the Virgin Islands (UVI).

"With the passage and signing of Act 8155, the Virgin Islands becomes the first Territory and the University of the Virgin Islands now becomes the first historically black college and university (HBCU) that provides comprehensive free tuition to students within its state or jurisdiction," said President of the University of the Virgin Islands, Dr. David Hall. "This is one of the few programs in the nation that provides free tuition for baccalaureate degrees."

The Virgin Islands Higher Education Scholarship Program (VIHESP) is available to residents of the U.S. Virgin Islands who have graduated from a private, public or parochial high school without regard to age, date of graduation or household income.

The full tuition scholarships can be applied towards study for a student's first associate's or bachelor's degree. In order for new students to qualify for the funds, they must apply for full-time admission to UVI no later than the published application deadline and must have applied for federal assistance through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). For 2019, the deadline for applying for admission to the University is March 1, 2019. New students applying for admission in the Spring 2020 semester must apply by October 15, 2019.

In signing the bill into law, then-Governor Kenneth E. Mapp stated: "This new law and the opportunities it creates will be a positive 'game changer' for many families. Providing tuition for young Virgin Islanders sets them on a path of achieving their dreams and aspirations."

Newly elected Lieutenant Governor Tregenza Roach, then senator, was the main sponsor of the legislation.

Approximately 1,700 students are expected to qualify to receive the tuition benefit, according to President Hall, potentially helping to increase the percentage of Virgin Islanders who have college degrees and move the Territory to a "more appropriate" level of degree-holders in the population.

"A college degree is no longer a luxury that the rich and the academically and athletically gifted individuals can obtain," Dr. Hall said. "Higher education is a basic necessity and must be provided in the same way we provide other basic necessities."

Recipients of the tuition aid, which would supplement students' federal scholarship awards, university scholarships, and private donations, will be required to maintain a Grade Point Average of 2.5.

"What truly makes the Virgin Islands approach to free tuition unique and compelling is that funds are also being set aside to support students in their quest to excel. The Act provides funding so that the University can establish new academic support programs to help more students in high school obtain a 2.5 Grade Point Average (GPA) and new programs at the college level that will help them to maintain a 2.5 GPA," said President Hall.

The other unique feature of the program is that it applies to any individual who meets the requirements regardless of when they finished high school.

"There are individuals in the Virgin Islands who have put their educational dream on hold five, 10, 15 or even 20 or more years ago," said Dr. Hall. "This policy enables and inspires them to now pick back up those dreams, brush them off, and pursue the fulfillment of that degree that they never were able to achieve in the past because of financial limitations."

The free tuition law includes an in-Territory work service requirement, ranging from two months to three years, for all students who receive a scholarship. The obligation to work in the Territory must be completed within seven years after graduation.

The University will collaborate with the Virgin Islands Department of Labor to secure job placement for scholarship recipients.

VIHESP provides for an annual appropriation of $3 million from the Internal Revenue Matching Fund to the University of the Virgin Islands Scholarship Revolving Fund. In addition, President Hall stressed that "private donors must continue to support the University with scholarship contributions in order for this transformative program to sustain itself."

"I encourage all Virgin Islanders to take advantage of this transformative opportunity to make their future brighter and their educational burden lighter," said President Hall.
