SymQuest Acquires Business Operations of UBIQ Imaging SolutionsSOUTH BURLINGTON, VT Larry Sudbay, President and Chief Executive Officer of SymQuest Group, Inc. has announced that the company has recently acquired the business operations of UBIQ Imaging Solutions, with offices in Portland and Bangor, Maine. In addition to serving its clients throughout Vermont, New Hampshire and New York, the acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solution’s business operations will allow SymQuest to also service clients in the Seacoast region, as well as the immediate inland areas of both New Hampshire and Maine.Designing, installing and supporting business technologies that handle the information flow of electronic and physical communications, SymQuest currently houses its headquarters in South Burlington, Vermont and has offices in Rutland, Vermont, as well as Plattsburgh, New York, and Keene and West Lebanon, New Hampshire. SymQuest employs 130 technology professionals. The acquisition of UBIQ will add 20 additional technology professionals.SymQuest has a history of growth and acquisition as evidenced by its purchase of IniNet, Inc. in Keene, New Hampshire in 2004; its expansion into the Plattsburgh, New York region in 2006; and most recently, its acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solutions in Maine.”We are pleased to join forces with the UBIQ staff who share our standards of delivering service above client expectations and ensuring that clients are ahead of the curve in the fast-paced world of technology. In order to continue to provide our clients with the best resources, we must constantly evolve and geographical growth is a natural part of that equation,” says Sudbay.SymQuest’s Continued Pattern of GrowthSudbay founded SymQuest with Pat Robins in 1996 – a $10 million business at that time. SymQuest furthered its expansion with the acquisition of IniNet, Inc. in 2004. SymQuest gained a well-developed presence in the Keene, New Hampshire region. Founded in 1996, IniNet provided IT services, network design and consulting.Sudbay explains, “The integration of IniNet’s business and resources of technical people provides a remarkable advantage for our clients in New Hampshire, Southern Vermont and Massachusetts. We shared similar philosophies and cultures. As a result of the acquisition, SymQuest has increased market reach, providing better levels of service.”IniNet’s former owner and current Service Director for SymQuest’s Keene office, Scott Vickery adds, “IniNet had reached a stage of growth when an investment in resources and infrastructure was required for continued success. This was just an innate progression towards success for everyone involved: the clients and both the employees of IniNet and SymQuest.”In 2006, SymQuest opened their Plattsburgh office. The branch has experienced success in the region and continues to grow, establishing a solid presence for the company in the Northern New York market.Sudbay commenced talks regarding a potential acquisition of UBIQ Imaging Solution’s business operations with its President and Founder, Jim Chamoff in early 2007. Locally owned, the Portland-based company provides digital imaging products to businesses throughout Maine and southern New Hampshire, including a complete range of hardware and software options for corporate and small businesses. UBIQs products and services include color imagers, corporate printers, small office printers, faxes, document management, secure printing and cost accounting.Chamoff has a career spanning more than two decades in the office equipment business. Throughout his career, Chamoff has excelled in delivering his extensive industry knowledge, personal enthusiasm and business experience to clients in Maine and southern New Hampshire.”We are thrilled about working together. SymQuest brings vast resources and benefits to UBIQ and its clients, such as: IT expertise, a Network Operations Center and 24/7 remote monitoring capabilities.”UBIQ was formed in late 2001 and has experienced significant growth during the past six years. We have approximately 20 employees between our Bangor and Portland offices; so, increasing from 20 employees to 150 is a positive development for both our internal operations and the clients we serve.”What Larry and his team have built at SymQuest is more than impressive. I immediately realized that my vision for the future of UBIQ is precisely what SymQuest is today, and that we are moving in the same direction,” said Chamoff.”Going forward, SymQuest will continue to expand the areas we serve with a constantly developing range of services. Currently, we are successfully transitioning from an emergency-based support approach to a comprehensive management services package – a more proactive approach,” says Sudbay.

NZ Herald 22 May 2020Family First Comment: Watch this space…“Three people shared a home and a bed for 15 years, but their relationship isn’t recognised by law… The court ruling noted that polyamorous couples had asked the Law Commission to recognise their relationships when it recently reviewed the law. The Law Commission said at the time that excluding multi-partner relationships – which were “functionally similar” to marriages, civil unions or de facto relationships – could be difficult to justify. (!!) …But it eventually recommended to Government that the PRA should continue to cover only intimate relationships between two people.”When gender doesn’t matter in marriage, why should number?#protectmarriage #onemanonewomanThree people from a polyamorous relationship are in a battle over how to split a valuable Auckland property after they broke up.In the first case of its kind in New Zealand, the High Court ruled that the Property Relationships Act (PRA) could not be applied to people in a multi-partner relationship.The judge in the case, Justice Anne Hinton, also said the Family Court could not “stretch” the law to accommodate a three-way relationship.The case relates to a couple, Lilach and Brett Paul, who married in 1993.In 1999, Lilach met Fiona Mead and in 2002 the three of them formed a polyamorous relationship.They moved into a four-hectare property in Kumeu, which had just been purchased in Mead’s name for $533,000. She paid the deposit of $40,000.They lived together at the property for 15 years, and mostly shared the same room and bed, the court ruling said.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12334075Man and two women who had three-way relationship in court battle over $2m farmStuff co.nz 22 May 2020A man and two women who were in a polyamorous relationship are now in a court battle over a property where they lived for 15 years.The relationship was the subject of the first ever judgment on polyamory and the Property (Relationships) Act, which was released on Friday.According to the judgement, Lilach and Brett Paul married in February 1998.The following year Lilach met Fiona Mead and in 2002 the three formed a polyamorous relationship.Polyamory is the practice of engaging in multiple sexual relationships with the consent of all the people involved.READ MORE: https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/121597356/man-and-two-women-who-had-threeway-relationship-in-court-battle-over-2m-farm?cid=app-iPhoneKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Peralta was the third SC Chief Justice appointee of President Rodrigo Duterte after previously choosing Lucas Bersamin and Teresita Leonor De Castro./PN “He made many landmark decisions that reverberate to this time, which include the imposition of the death penalty on a policeman who used his service firearm to shoot an 11-year-old boy while flying his kite on a rooftop in People vs. Fallorina; the first conviction for plunder involving a cashier of the Bureau of Internal Revenue in People vs. Manalili; the first and only conviction of Qualified Bribery under Article 211-A of the Revised Penal Code, as amended, involving a substantial number of police officers in the case of suspected foreign drug-traffickers,” Panelo said. “We are certain that with Chief Justice Peralta at the helm of the Supreme Court, the Judiciary will continue to be well-managed as it thrives to uphold the principles of judicial excellence, integrity and independence,” Panelo said. According to Panelo, the Malacañang is confident that the judicial branch will effectively fulfill its core functions with Peralta, who will serve as the SC CJ for the next three years. He added that Peralta convicted the most number of accused involved in big time drug cases and other serious crimes. Vice President Leni Robredo is off to a good start one week into leading the government’s crackdown on illegal drugs, Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo says. PCOO Peralta’s track record is unquestionable, Panelo said, as he has served the judiciary for more than three decades in various capacities, a trial court judge, associate justice and presiding justice of the Sandiganbayan and associate justice of the SC. MANILA – The Supreme Court (SC) will remain independent under the tenure of newly-appointed Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta, Presidential spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.

The former Tottenham keeper has arrived from Norwich, where he had worked since 2014. Parks worked with Sherwood when he was in charge at Spurs and left following Sherwood’s exit from White Hart Lane in May 2014.

University of Wisconsin basketball players Bronson Koenig and Nigel Hayes have been making waves this offseason for everything but basketball. From the Keystone Pipeline to collegiate athletes getting paid, the two have taken some pretty profound stances that hit home for each of them and are attracting national attention. Despite the laid back and comical nature Koenig and Hayes have had in front of a microphone in the past, the two have put on stern faces to address what problems they see affecting them before they lose the publicity in the coming year.Issues like these have been front and center lately due to 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick-led protests in the NFL and athletes like Carmelo Anthony speaking out against police brutality. In line with Madison’s political history and nature, Wisconsin’s own athletes have been known to take stands for things they believe in and representing a better conversation than this current election.Koenig, a member of the Ho-Chunk nation, has been outspoken against the use of Native Americans names as mascots, including the Washington Redskin’s. The senior point guard has displayed a strong connection with his native heritage this offseason and has been as vocal as possible as of late.“With the mascots and all that stuff I think people think its OK to make fun of us,” Koenig told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I feel like sometimes we are the lowest of the low among the minorities … and when a Native American kid sees that growing up and see disrespect, it lowers their self-esteem and puts them in a lower place in society.”Dane County Sheriff recalls deputies from North Dakota pipeline protestsAfter sending 10 deputies to North Dakota Oct. 9 to aid with crowd control at the Dakota Access Pipeline protests, Read…He later went on to explain how the name Redskins refers to Native Americans being skinned. The issue of the Washington, D.C. football team has offended many across athletes in the U.S., and has been overlooked according to the LaCrosse, Wisconsin native.Koenig’s loyalty to his heritage was put on full display earlier this fall when he joined the protests of the North Dakota pipeline, an oil pipeline that cuts through sacred tribal land. Koenig drove the 11 hours to North Dakota, joining his older brother and athletic trainer Clint Parks. In addition to joining the protests, Koenig also hosted an impromptu basketball clinic for the local kids. Koenig is a massive figure in the Native American community — a young leader in a community with few athletes representing them as proudly as Koenig. In his short time in the national spotlight, he has proved he does not take this role lightly and does not intend on standing idly by when he has been given a platform to make a change, much like his teammate Hayes.UW officials respond to ‘war chant’ incident at Native American community gatheringStereotypical “war chants” disrupted an event to promote healing for Native American survivors of sexual assault Wednesday, according to a Read…Hayes’ outspoken nature has made him a polarizing figure in the world of NCAA politics, to say the least. His latest display came during ESPN’s College GameDay, when he help up a sign that read, “Broke College Athlete. Anything Helps.” The sign listed a Venmo account for people to send money to. He then gave all the money to the Boys and Girls Club. College GameDay is certainly an appropriate place for Hayes’s protest of the NCAA’s policy that disallows any form of payment to the athletes. SB Nation reported that ESPN and other networks pay handsomely to air Big Ten sports. Starting next year, the conference will pull in $440 million per year to broadcast football and basketball. Reports suggest Wisconsin will receive about $40 million of that income directly.Nigel Hayes uses College GameDay to protest NCAAUniversity of Wisconsin men’s basketball team forward Nigel Hayes joined the crowd of students at ESPN’s College GameDay Saturday to Read…This doesn’t include the income Wisconsin receives from their new Under Armor deal. The article later mentions how Athletic Director Barry Alvarez, as well as Paul Chryst and Greg Gard make millions. Many, however, are skeptical of the 6-8 forward, since he debated declaring for the NBA draft last year, potentially turning down a huge pay-day. If he was drafted late in the first round as some projected him, Hayes could have made more than $2 million in his first two years in the league. One of these skeptics is Marquette University guard Duane Wilson. In a series of tweets, Wilson condemned Hayes’ protests as a social media stunt for attention. Wilson mentioned he has a son and said “it’s a blessing to even get a free education.”[UPDATE] Hayes blows up Twitter with #BlackLivesMatter discussionFor six hours Thursday evening, University of Wisconsin star basketball forward Nigel Hayes tweeted 44 times supporting the Black Lives Read…Both Hayes and Koenig have been placed on the preseason All-Big Ten team, along with teammate Ethan Happ. A panel of Big Ten media also declared Hayes Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year and the coaches poll has the Badgers at No. 10 in the nation and third in the Big Ten this year.Hopefully, the two seniors can create the same kind of buzz on the court this year in their first full season with coach Greg Gard, an outspoken defendant of the duo’s activism.
