    Cisco has created a Gigabit network for your car and Hyundai will be using it next year (CSCO) · *1Gbps Cisco networks are coming to cars next year.*
    · *Cisco has partnered with Hyundai to offer super high-speed networks in 2019 vehicles.*
    · *These networks will have tons of bandwidth, and security, to support all the sensors cars need for autonomous features, Cisco promises.*

    --------------------Chances are, you don't have a super-fast Gigabit network in your house yet but as of next year, you'll be able to get one in your car. Computer networking giant Cisco and South Korean automaker Hyndai announced a partnership at CES on Tuesday to supercharge its automobiles with sophisticated internet capabilities.

    While 1Gbps will offer a ton of bandwidth for your kids to stream movies during a road trip, that's not the focus of this network. It's designed to allow car makers to load their cars with sensors of every description that will help the automotive industry roll full speed ahead into a robot car future.

    As cars add ever more autonomous driving features from lane correction and self-parallel parking to full on self-driving, they need sensors to do things like watch for pedestrians, recognize traffic signs, scan surroundings around, behind and inside the car.

    Those sensors can also be accessed by apps. For instance, a car maker could create an app that uses in-vehicle sensors to watch the driver (Cisco calls it sentiment analysis) and ensure that she doesn't fall asleep on a late-night drive, or to adjust the car's performance to driving conditions.

    All of that requires lots of data to be floating around the car and a network big and fat enough to handle that with ease.

    Cisco says its expertise with computer networks means its 1Gbps car network will be secure, allowing car makers and developers to build apps while thwarting hackers and bugs from messing with the automobile.

    While the two companies didn't specify specific car models slated to get the 1Gbps networks, they did say it would be available in Hyundai's premium 2019 vehicles.

    Meanwhile, Hyndai is moving steadily towards its own line of fully self driving cars from its self-driving car R&D program launched in 2015.

    The South Korean car maker also just announced that it is working with hot startup Aurora (founded by self-driving engineers from Google, Tesla and Uber) to create completely self driving cars. Hyndai is first designing custom cars that wil become robot taxis in not-yet-announced select cities. By 2021, through this partnership, it plans to be offering production vehicles that can drive themselves under strict conditions (technically known as "Level 4" autonomy).

    ACBFF Stock: Price Objective Obtained
    Marijuana stocks went from being one of the hottest sectors, by registering very impressive daily gains, to one of the coldest, as a correction has gripped this entire sector. The losses are substantial and they are beginning to add up; I have reason to believe that a larger correction is now in the works.

    I am focusing on *Aurora Cannabis Inc *(OTCMKTS:ACBFF), (TSE:ACB) stock because if you had been following my previous publications on this stock, the correction that has gripped ACBFF stock should come as no surprise because it commenced right after my price objective of $10.00-$12.00 was met.

    With California joining the ranks of legal use marijuana state the number of states allowing for the lawful consumption of the drug grows, and as the effects of these new use laws on employment have yet to be fully determined any change in law should be of concern to employers. Adam Almeida, President and CEO of opines: “The passage of recreational use marijuana law in California highlights an immediate need for employers of all sizes to work closely with a well-qualified pre-employment background screening agency in order to remain fully compliant with all existing and potential laws governing background screening.”

    Waltham, MA (PRWEB) January 17, 2018

    On January 1, 2018 California joined a growing list of states allowing the legal sale and use of recreational marijuana and while the effect on employment is yet to be understood, significant impact on pre-employment background screening could be felt in the near future. Adam Almeida, President and CEO of opines: “Any significant change in law should immediately push employers to review all existing employment screening policies in order to comply with existing and potential law.”

    In West Hollywood, California the legal sale of recreational use marijuana commenced on the first day of the year.

    From (Jan 03, 18):

    The city of West Hollywood has become one of the first cities in the state to permit Adult-Use Retail cannabis sales. The recreational use of marijuana became legal in the state of California on Monday, January 1, 2018. (1)

    While West Hollywood, CA allows the sale of recreational use marijuana not every city in California has the same policies. Some allow cultivation but not sales; others offer sales but not cultivation: Each city allows different practices as to the management of the marijuana law.

    Almeida states: “An obvious best practice in light of the new marijuana law in California is to work with a pre-employment background screening agency in order to remain compliant with current law and stay ahead of potential new law.”

    A great many questions remain regarding marijuana use and the workplace and, specifically, drug testing.

    From the Los Angeles Times (; Jan. 04, 18):

    The new law "specifically does not change the legal status between employers and employees when it comes to drug testing and employment," said Tamar Todd, legal affairs director for Drug Policy Alliance, a national drug law reform group that supported the 2016 passage of Proposition 64, which legalized the sale of recreational marijuana in California.

    "You can still be drug tested, and you could still be fired by your employer," she said. (2)

    Almeida states: “Laws will continue to evolve over time and will continue to change. The legalization of recreational marijuana will eventually have a significant impact on pre-employment background screening policies beyond drug testing.”

    One result of legalization may be the attitudes toward past usage and revelation of such usage during the interview process.

    From the Denver Post (; Dec. 18, 17) discussing past marijuana use with police officer applicants in Colorado, attitudes that could eventually evolve in other states such as California:

    …other police departments in the state are changing their attitudes. Last year, the Aurora Civil Service Commission adopted a policy that requires applicants to its police and fire departments to be marijuana-free for one year instead of three.

    The changes in policies reflect evolving attitudes toward marijuana use in society, and some police departments are changing their standards because they fear they might lose otherwise high-quality recruits who have experimented with the drug because it is legal for people who are 21 or older to use pot in Colorado. (3)

    Almeida concludes: “Ultimately significant changes such as the recreational marijuana use law in California will challenge employers and indicates an urgent need that all businesses and organizations work with a well-qualified pre-employment background screening agency in order to remain fully compliant with law.” is a third-party employment screening company that can provide compliant solutions for all screening requirements. From pre-employment to post-hire screening, as well as volunteer, caregiver and nanny checks, provides background screening services across a broad array of industries. From the smallest organization to the largest corporation, can fulfill every background screening requirement.

    The Military Child of the Year Award reflects the positive impact that these special young people have made on their military families, their schools, and their communities.

    SAN ANTONIO (PRWEB) January 17, 2018

    Operation Homefront, serving America’s military families® since 2002, today announced the 95 semifinalists for the 2018 Military Child of the Year® (MCOY) Award. 2018 marks the 10th anniversary of this special event — the nation’s premier celebration of the achievements of our military children.

    The Military Child of the Year® Award reflects the positive impact that these special young people have made on their military families, their schools, and their communities. The final seven award recipients will travel to Washington, D.C., to be recognized at the April 19 gala, during which senior leaders of each branch of service will present the awards. They also will each receive $10,000, a laptop computer, and other donated gifts.

    Beyond the ceremony and gifts, the Military Child of the Year® Award is a lifelong source of pride for the recipients and has provided them with amazing opportunities to meet senior military leaders, elected officials, celebrities, and other remarkable military children.

    Mark Newberry, the 2013 Air Force Military Child of the Year®, recently wrote, “One of the greatest honors of my life so far was representing the Air Force in 2013 as an Operation Homefront Military Child of the Year… If you would have told me as a high school senior that I would be chosen to represent military children at the Operation Homefront gala, meet the Air Force Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark Welsh, and receive an Air Force ROTC scholarship that would afford me opportunities to study what I love, jump out of planes, and become a pilot, I wouldn’t have believed you. Being a military child has afforded me so many opportunities that not many children get to experience.”

    Thirty-five finalists will be selected in February by a panel of judges chosen by Operation Homefront’s senior leadership.

    Six Military Child of the Year® Award recipients will represent each branch of the armed forces — the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and National Guard — for their scholarship, volunteerism, leadership, extracurricular involvement, and other criteria while facing the challenges of military family life. The seventh award is the Military Child of the Year® Award for Innovation presented by global technology and consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton. This award goes to a military child who has designed a bold and creative solution to address a local, regional or global challenge.

    The Military Child of the Year® Award for Innovation recipient will work directly with a Booz Allen Hamilton team to develop a plan to help scale the recipient’s project — drawing on technology and strategic thinking as a part of the corporation’s competitive Summer Games.

    The following are the 2018 Military Child of the Year® Award semifinalists by service branch. Semifinalists for the 2018 Military Child of the Year® Award for Innovation are also designated:

Operation Homefront provides critical financial assistance, transitional and permanent housing and family support services to prevent short-term needs from turning into chronic, long-term struggles.
