SubscriberWise® founder David E. Howe, America's credit captain, stops over Las Vegas South Point Hotel & Casino to cheer SubscriberWise-sponsored bowlers

Of course, the same must be said about the other bowlers that Credit Czar met – including their lovers, family, and friends”

— FICO global GOAT & SubscriberWise founder David E. Howe

LAS VEGAS , NEVADA, USA, April 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading advocate for children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the appearance by company founder and CEO David Howe at the 2017 United States Bowling Congress. The preeminent bowling event widely is recognized as the largest participatory sporting event in the world.

"Last week I had the privilege to witness one of the most prestigious bowling events in this nation," said David Howe, SubscriberWise founder, national child protector, and FICO mega-star global MVP all-time worldwide highest achieving supreme master champion. "The 2017 USBC Open Championship was truly an unforgettable event – with the excitement and energy so dynamic neither could be contained.

“Watching the pros striking down the pins with style and precision, I could hardly believe that I was part of a squad as a small-town-novice-bowler more than 30 years ago,” Howe recalled. “Although I was far from a stand-out on the lanes, it never mattered because I always had fun and I was part of the team.

“But one thing is remarkably evident today,” Howe added. “I don't know how I ever lifted those heavy balls. I also don’t know how I rolled them so hard and fast down the alley.

“It was a long time ago,” reminisced GOAT Howe.

“Nevertheless, this event will not be marked by the thunder of the balls or the strike of the pins,” Howe continued. “It will not be marked by the accolades, awards, or the 300-pin-perfect-rolls. And it will certainly not be marked by a visit from the FICO GOAT (https://youtu.be/uxYIFMlkzFM).

“Rather, this event will be marked by the friendship, camaraderie, sportsmanship – and most of all – the respect for all — which were on full display during the 2017 USBC Open Championship in beloved Las Vegas, NV.

“In addition to this amazing SubscriberWise sponsorship honor, the other special privilege to mark the occasion was the opportunity to cheer my cousin — Joseph S. Paul — also a team member and a 21-year-USBC-bowling-championship-participant.

“Congratulations, Joe! The 2018 SubscriberWise® sponsorship check is in the mail. See you on the lanes next year.

“Yes, the event was an incredible success,” concluded Howe. “Meeting each of the team members individually, including several of their family and significant others, was a particular highlight. Of course, the same must be said about the other bowlers that Credit Czar met – including their lovers, family, and friends – all who made the experience an unforgettable and most joyful event.”

About David Howe and SubscriberWise

U.S. Credit Czar David Howe is the highest achieving credit scoring consumer in global banking and financial history since human beings started to count on their fingers. Howe intends to demystify consumer credit and credit scores for individuals everywhere by sharing his story and experiences. Credit and credit scores impact many areas of one's financial life. Excellent credit offers rewards and opportunities; adverse credit limits choices and costs real money.

Hearing the facts about credit scores from the only citizen of the world – living or deceased – to have
achieved simultaneous perfect FICO 850 scores across every national repository and simultaneous
perfect Vantage scores at Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion – as well as having obtained rankings in the
100th percentile across virtually every scoring model on the market is intended to empower and
encourage consumers who may be struggling with their credit and eager to get back on their feet.

Pursuing perfect credit is hardly the point and it shouldn't become an obsession; rather it is the fact that
it's possible. It requires patience and extremely careful financial maneuvers over a very long period. And
because no person can control life events, set-backs are inevitable. David Howe proves it's attainable
despite his own challenges and life events during his near half-century existence on planet earth. Howe
has literally invested decades with countless hours and thousands of dollars pursuing and mastering
personal credit and FICO scores in particular. The effort has paid off and has not gone unnoticed.

Howe's passion with credit and risk management can be found everywhere in the industry today. Today
SubscriberWise touches a U.S. consumer every minute of every hour of every day. In 2014,
SubscriberWise was named winner in the CableFAX Tech Awards in the category of commercial
software, among an incredibly competitive environment that was open to every MSO and tech vendor in
North America.

Having directly prevented more child identity thefts than any single individual including law
enforcement professionals nationwide, David Howe is recognized as one of the most productive and
engaged child identity theft experts of the 21st century. Howe’s expertise on the subject of identity theft
has been shared with virtually all levels of state and federal law enforcement agencies including field
agents from the FBI. In 2014, Howe was contacted by IBM’s RedCell Counter Fraud and Financial Crimes
Intelligence organization for training and information concerning child identity fraud. During his long career in telecommunications, Howe has exposed some of the most complex banking and financial crimes the U.S.A. has ever known or contemplated (http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20150703005329/en/SubscriberWise-CEO-David-HoweBlows-Whistle-National).

Despite being a dedicated and hard worker, Howe is a vagabond and minimalist who prefers to travel
from city to city – on a whim – and at his sole discretion; rarely an agenda and often no place in
particular. Howe is most contented with a simple existence, an eye on health and wellness, friends and
family, warm and sunny climates, and – most especially – a morning coffee and an afternoon imbibe of
red wine.

Howe holds an Associate and Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Arts and Sciences at Kent State
University with an academic focus in human behavior at the macro level, political science, and public
administration. He is a member of Pi Gamma Mu, the country's oldest and preeminent honor society in
the social sciences and Alpha Kappa Delta, the international sociology honor society.

Howe was among the first professionals in the nation to obtain the FICO Professional Certification. Howe
was interviewed on the subject of perfect credit by BankRate.com and The Motley Fool and is the first
and only citizen of the world to describe the details of perfect FICO and Vantage scores to U.S. reporters.

Howe produced and published two videos on the subject of perfect credit: FICO 850 Credit Report Facts
and FICO Scores: The Facts.

SubscriberWise contributions to the communications industry are today quantified in the billions of
dollars annually.

Mzembi is Africa’s man for UNWTO Secretary General says South Africa

Hard-working, passionate, and deeply committed” is how Minister Xasa described her Zimbabwean counterpart. I know he will bring these same qualities to the service of global tourism.”

— South Africa Minister of Tourism Ms. Thoko Xasa

PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA, April 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — “This is Africa’s time, and Walter Mzembi is Africa’s candidate to head the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).”

With these words, South African Minister of Tourism Ms. Thoko Xasa, reinforced the South African government’s “strong and principled” support for Mzembi’s African Union (AU)-endorsed bid for election to the post of UNWTO Secretary General.

Ms. Xasa was delivering the keynote address at a gala dinner hosted yesterday evening by her ministry for the AU-endorsed candidate at the plush Sheraton hotel in downtown Pretoria, South Africa’s capital city.

Those invited to the dinner included Government Ministers, Ambassadors of all UNWTO Executive Council member states represented in South Africa, representatives of the South African tourism industry, and both local and foreign media houses.

Praising Dr. Mzembi for the strong leadership he has shown in formulating and driving Africa’s evolving tourism development strategies, and for seeking to institutionalize tourism as a stand-alone sector within African Union administrative structures, she expressed her own and Africa’s full confidence in his ability to provide equally effective leadership at the very apex of global tourism.

Retracing the selection processes at sub-regional and continental levels, by which Dr. Mzembi emerged, with the unanimous endorsement of all 15 SADC member countries and all 55 member states of the African Union, Minister Xasa noted that she had worked alongside Mzembi for many years and could personally attest to the caliber and integrity of Africa’s selected candidate for the UNWTO post.

“Hard-working, passionate, and deeply committed” is how Minister Xasa described her Zimbabwean counterpart. “I know he will bring these same qualities to the service of global tourism.”

Stressing again that “this is Africa’s time,” Minister Xasa appealed to African ambassadors present at the dinner for the continent to remain united and focused in its support for Dr. Mzembi, cautioning that “a divided Africa is a weaker Africa, open to exploitation and less able to resist the self-serving manipulations of others who would seek, themselves, to set Africa’s agenda.”

The minister noted that, notwithstanding its massive tourism potential and staggering natural-resource wealth, Africa’s share of global tourism arrivals and expenditures still hovered between 3 to 5 percent.

“Africa needs to work more closely together, as neighbors, as component parts of integrated regional structures, and as a continent of 55 nations, to ensure that African tourism grows and migrates towards more visible and more effective integration into global tourism flows.”

The minister said that although it was a global position he was seeking, Dr. Mzembi would strive to ensure that Africa’s tourism performance, along with that of other less well-performing regions, would be more fully accommodated into strategies to grow global tourism over the coming decade.

The election of a new Secretary General for the UNWTO takes place in Madrid, Spain, on May 12. The name of Secretary General-elect to emerge from that process will then be submitted by the Executive Council to a meeting of the UNWTO General Assembly, scheduled to convene in Chengdu, China, during the second week of September.

The new Secretary General will officially take office in early January 2018 with a mandate of 4 years, renewable once.

Should Dr. Mzembi succeed in his bid to head the UNWTO, it will be the first time in the 60-year history of the organization that an African has occupied the top office.

Guam remembers the SMS Cormoran II at Sea

TUMON, GUAM, April 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Guam has celebrated the 100th anniversary of the scuttling of the SMS Cormoran II, a historic ship where the first shot fired by the US took place in World War I. The Cormoran had spent two and a half years stranded in Guam with no coal to reach another safe destination. Although not at war with Germany, the US Naval Governor of Guam had decided against refueling the Cormoran, due in part to the island’s own limited supply of the fuel.

Eventually, the German sailors of the Cormoran were given permission to come and go freely from the ship. The relationship between the local people and the Navy with the Cormoran’s crew was very friendly. When the US entered WWI on April 6, 1917, the relationship was forced to change.

The Navy demanded the Cormoran’s captain Adalbert Zuckschwerdt surrender his ship as their countries were now at war. Zuckschwerdt agreed to surrender himself and his crew, but not the Cormoran. Instead, he instructed his crew to leave the ship and made arrangements to scuttle her. On April 7, 1917 at 8:03 a.m., multiple explosions shook the SMS Cormoran II and she began to sink. Unfortunately, not all the sailors had left the ship and seven died that day.

Only six bodies were recovered. The six sailors were buried with full military honors in the U.S. Naval Cemetery in Hagåtña. The graves are still well marked with headstones inscribed with each sailor’s name – Karl Bennershansen, Franz Blum, K. Boomerum, Rudolph Penning, Emil Reschke, and Ernes Roose. The cemetery also features a monument built by the crew for the SMS Cormoran II and her lost crew members.

On April 7, 2017, crowds gathered in the afternoon at the U.S. Naval Cemetery to honor the fallen of the SMS Cormoran II with a special Peace Tribute Commencement Ceremony. Michael Musto, a SMS Cormoran and dive professional, gave a short history of the Cormoran. The Guam National Guard conducted the presentation of colors and Guam Territorial Band performed. The sailors were honored with a special Chamorro blessing conducted by Pa’a Taotao Tano’, Guam’s longest performing cultural group, and Pale Eric Forbes gave a Christian blessing.

Guam’s U.S. Congress representative, Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo, gave opening remarks. The Congresswoman, Rear Admiral, U.S. Navy Commander, Joint Region Marianas Shoshana Chatfield, Guam Senator Dennis Rodriguez, Senator Joe S. San Agustin, and Milton Morinaga, Chairman of the GVB Board of Directors unveiled the commemoration plaque. Rear Admiral Chatfield also gave a speech outlining the US Navy’s relationship with the Cormoran and her crew. Admiral stated, “What is the role of the sailor, what might any of us in uniform be asked to do, and I think that I can summarize that by saying that we will serve faithfully, that we will fight bravely, and that we will die honorably.”

Mr. Michael Hasper, Chargé d’Affaires from the German Embassy in Manila, representing the Cormoran’s native Germany was joined by Walter Runck, whose grandfather was a sailor on the Cormoran, and Maria Uhl from Sonthofen, Germany, Guam’s sister city since 1988, to place a large floral wreath by the SMS Cormoran II monument. Six local German families placed small floral arrangements on the six sailors’ graves.

The history of the SMS Cormoran II includes a two-month stay in Lamotrek, an atoll of Yap, part of the Federated States of Micronesia. A sailor named Paul Glaser, rescued by the Cormoran during her journey throughout the Pacific, was laid to rest in Lamotrek. The Lamotrek Association of Guam honored their connection with the SMS Cormoran II during the Peace Tribute Commencement Ceremony. Their skin oiled and colored by turmeric, a brightly colored delegation presented coconuts and sprinkled turmeric on each grave. The fruits represented the main food staple with which the people of Lamotrek were able to feed the nearly 300-person crew of the Cormoran.

The local community presented the fallen sailors with breadfruit and water. The water was carried in a New Guinean bowl to represent the thirty Cormoran crew members who were from New Guinea. The Chamorros used a medicinal fern leaf called “kahlau” to sprinkle the water on each grave and a Chinese bell was rung three times for each lost sailor. The Chinese bell represented the Chinese crew members from the SMS Cormoran II.

Following the formal presentations, the crowd was also invited to place flowers at the memorial site and on the headstones. Preserving and respecting the island’s history is important in Guam, from our own Chamorro culture and history to the lives from other lands who have touched our shores and left their mark. For over 100 years the SMS Cormoran II and her crew have been a proud part of the history of Guam.

Guam holds seaside memorial for the SMS Cormoran II

TUMON, GUAM, April 30, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Friday, April 7, 2017, the Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) was joined by local and international dignitaries to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the scuttling of the SMS Cormoran II. The German vessel came to Guam in December 1914, out of coal and desperate to escape pursuit by warships of the Japanese Imperial Navy. The ship and her crew stayed in Guam peacefully for the next two and half years until the United States entered World War I on April 6, 1917.

On that fateful day, Guam’s US Navy Governor sent word to Captain Adalbert Zuckschwerdt of the Cormoran that their two countries were now at war. The captain was instructed to surrender his ship and prepare his men to become prisoners of war. Captain Zuckschwerdt agreed to surrender his crew, but not the SMS Cormoran. Instead, the ship was scuttled and sunk to the bottom of Apra Harbor on April 7, 1917.

To commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the scuttling of the SMS Cormoran II, the GVB organized a special seaside memorial service. Attendees of the ocean service were transported to the site of the Cormoran’s final resting place by boat. Nearly 120 people participated in the seaside memorial service including two family members representing the crew of the Cormoran. Walter Runck, came for his grandfather Jakob Runch, and Lasia Casil, represented her great-grandfather Paul Grey, who were both sailors on the Cormoran.

The contingent honoring the SMS Cormoran also included Mr. Michael Hasper, Chargé d’Affaires from the German Embassy in Manila, Guam’s U.S. Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo, Captain James B. Pruett Commander of the US Coast, island dignitaries, and the Consul Generals from Japan, Philippines, and South Korea. An international media corps with representatives from Japan, Korea, North America, Russia, Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and China attended to capture the memorial.

The event began at 8:03 a.m., the exact time the Cormoran began to sink a hundred years before, with the chiming of the bell, ringing out seven times in honor of the seven sailors who perished that day. Their names – Karl Bennershansen, Franz Blum, K. Boomerum, Rudolph Penning, Emil Reschke, and Ernes Roose were read out with each toll, followed by a traditional Chamorro blessing performed by Guam’s Pa’a Taotao Tano’ group. The Chamorro blessing was complimented with a Christian blessing, given by Pale Eric Forbes. Mr. Hasper, Chargé d’Affaires from the German Embassy and Congresswoman Bordallo, each gave remarks to commemorate the over 100-year history of the SMS Cormoran and Guam.

At 8:30 a.m., local deep-sea scuba divers Mitchell Singler, Louis Cabral, Frank Gradyan, Jim Pinson, photographer/diver Chase Weir, and GVB’s Director of Global Marketing Pilar Laguaña entered the water and began the descent to 110 feet (34 meters), where the Cormoran lies. The divers carried with them a 12-foot wreath, a centennial commemorative 4-feet x 3-feet banner, and a replica of the Imperial German Navy flag, which were attached to the SMS Cormoran II as peace tribute to her 100 years beneath the sea.

“With my Chamorro and German ethnic background, to carry the Imperial German Navy flag down to the SMS Cormoran II on the morning of its 100th year anniversary was a humbling experience and an extremely special moment. As I approached the ship, I yearned that all could see how magnificent she lies peaceful and so gallant and strong as the flag was rightfully mounted back onto the SMS Cormoran II” stated Ms. Pilar Laguaña.

Divers posed for photos touching the twin shipwrecks of the SMS Cormoran and Tokai Maru, her companion of the last 26 years. The Tokai Maru sunk during WWII and came to lie touching the Cormoran’s propeller, creating the only dive site in the world where divers can touch shipwrecks from two different World Wars.

While the divers honored the Cormoran below, aboard the boats, guests listened as local diver and instructor Michael Musto gave a history on the SMS Cormoran II and her place in Guam’s history. When the divers returned, the memorial group returned to shore, where preparations were underway at the U.S. Naval Cemetery to honor the seven German sailors who lost their lives 100 years ago. The 100th commemoration of the day the SMS Cormoran II sank is a moment of both pride and dedication to preserve and share information on the history of the SMS Cormoran II and may one not forget the sacrifices made by its crew members. Friendships formed, loyalties tested, lives lost, and a rich part of Guam’s history to be remembered.

Crowd-sourced reporting provides transit agencies a valuable tool in protecting against terrorism

“ELERTS understands the need for crowd-sourced incident reporting. The police can't do it alone. Twenty-first century policing requires the community’s participation in public safety.”

— says Ed English, ELERTS CEO.

WEYMOUTH, MA, USA, April 28, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The reality of today’s threat levels forces transit agencies to develop strategies concerning terrorism. The very nature of public transit systems—their open design, multiple access points and heavy volume of passengers—makes them hard to defend.

The string of recent terrorist plots, including the latest out of Russia, validates the need to assess how transit agencies are protecting themselves, including through utilizing a new source of valuable information: crowd-sourced reporting. Smartphones are everywhere; incoming information from smartphones makes a critical difference to responding personnel. The utilization of crowd-sourced reporting is an innovative approach to 21st-century transit policing.

“ELERTS understands the need for crowd-sourced incident reporting. The police can't do it alone. Twenty-first century policing requires the community’s participation in public safety. There is no better sensor for security threats than an eyewitness who sees or overhears a threat,” says Ed English, ELERTS CEO. “Transit agencies of all sizes are using ELERTS’ See Say communication platform to enhance safety.”

ANNABELLE BOYD and JOHN P.SULLIVAN Boyd, Virginia Synthesis of Transit Practice 27 Emergency Preparedness for Transit Terrorism
The changing nature of terrorism presents new challenges for U.S. public transportation agencies. A primary mission of each transit agency is to ensure, to the fullest extent possible, the security of passengers, employees, and agency property. Each year, U.S. public transportation agencies carry more than 8 billion passengers and employ almost 300,000 people. The U.S. mass transit infrastructure is currently valued at more than $1 trillion.

Brian Michael Jenkins (February, 2017) THE CHALLENGE OF PROTECTING TRANSIT AND PASSENGER RAIL
Public surface transportation poses unique challenges. It is not easy to increase security without causing inconvenience, unreasonably slowing travel times, adding significant costs, and creating vulnerable queues of people waiting to pass through security checkpoints. This has compelled rail operators to explore other options: enlisting passengers and staff in alerting authorities to suspicious objects or behavior, random passenger screening, designing new stations to facilitate surveillance and reduce potential casualties from explosions or fire, and ensuring rapid intervention.

Countering Terrorism in Transportation by Mortimer L. Downey, Thomas R. Menzies
Successful transportation counterterrorism, however, will require a new strategy. There is no point in trying to protect against or weed out every possible opening for terrorists. That is a traditional approach to transportation security, but it is expensive and demonstrably ineffective. The new strategy should rely instead on layering and interleaving various defensive measures. A layering strategy will not only protect against vulnerabilities in transportation security, it will also deter terrorists by creating uncertainties about the chances of being caught.

Threats: A Guide JOHN N. BALOG McCormick, MATTHEW G. DEVOST and JOHN P. SULLIVAN
Rapid and accurate information sharing is a critical operational need for coping with threats against public transportation systems. Emergencies arising from terrorist threats highlight the need for transportation managers to minimize the vulnerability of passengers, employees, and physical assets through incident prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery. Managers are seeking to reduce the chances that transportation vehicles and facilities will be targets or instruments of terrorist attacks and to be prepared to respond to and recover from such possibilities.

Brian Michael Jenkins (February, 2017) The Challenge of Protecting Transit and Passenger Rail (Mineta Transportation Institute at San Jose State University)
Enlisting the public in security demonstrably works. One security measure that can be quantified and that appears to work in the area of surface-transportation security is enlisting staff and the public to call attention to suspicious behavior and objects. Public awareness in the United Kingdom seems to have helped in identifying explosive devices placed by the IRA. According to the MTI database, warnings by staff, on-scene security personnel, and passengers prevented 11 percent of terrorist bombings in Europe.

Brian Michael Jenkins and Bruce Butterworth (24 Mar, 2014) Says Subways Are Still in Terrorists' Sights (Mineta Transportation Institute at San Jose State University)
Meanwhile, keeping both passengers and employees alert is key. "See Something, Say Something" may sound trite and tired in the rapid transit system, but it can work. In the 3,754 attacks recorded against train, bus and other targets, there are indications that in somewhat less than 400, someone interrupted the attack. Sometimes the narratives do not specify who took the initial action (in about 170 cases). In other cases, they were interrupted by police, military, intelligence agencies, or anonymous tips. Without these interventions, the collective death toll could have been much worse.

ELERTS’ See Say™ mobile phone app was developed for transit agencies to enable the crowd-sourcing of safety and security concerns from riders. When riders see a potentially threatening situation, with the click of a button, they can: 1) directly call the police or 2) discretely submit a report with a photo, video, incident description and GPS coordinates. The camera flash is disabled to avoid drawing attention to the rider. Riders may also choose to submit a report anonymously.

“Crowd-sourced reporting of security incidents works. Riders see suspicious activity before it evolves into an incident,” says Ed English. “Getting actionable information to police immediately from eyewitnesses can enhance their response [times].”

Due to the participation of vigilant riders, the ELERTS mobile app converts crowd-sourced knowledge into situation awareness for the transit agency. Once a report is initiated, two-way communication is enabled. The dispatcher can ask the rider for more details about the situation or provide instructions as needed. The app allows riders to report incidents such as suspicious activity, disruptive behavior, crimes in progress and security and safety issues. Riders may also report immediately threatening situations such as assaults and attacks on drivers.

About ELERTS: ELERTS Corporation, headquartered in Weymouth, MA, develops best-in-class emergency communication software empowered by community-sourced reporting of safety and security concerns. The company’s cloud-based approach leverages smartphone technologies to provide robust, bidirectional communication between multiple parties. ELERTS mobile technology integrates video surveillance, access control and mass-notification systems. The result is actionable information for emergency situations that help first responders become faster responders.

• Jimmy Osmond will star in "Moon River and Me" during select dates from April 25 through September 29 with special guest Charlie Green and The Moon River Band. The show received rave reviews when it debuted at the Andy Williams Performing Arts Center in 2015, and has played to sold-out audiences in Las Vegas and its U.K. tour. "To perform the show on the theatre's 25th anniversary is just such an incredible privilege," said Jimmy.
