Developer Helps Increase Housing in Underserved LA County

Developer Helps Increase Housing in Underserved LA County Press Release from GlobeNewsWire has been published today, Karol Rutkowski, .

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Ocean Development Inc, the second largest residential developer in Los Angeles has targeted the critically underserved market in Los Angeles County and proved that affordable homes for the working-class can be built in Los Angeles.
During the last forty years, California’s municipalities had the responsibility of setting housing goals every five to eight years as a way of making sure that enough new homes are built to meet the demands of a growing population. Unfortunately, according to the state’s recent report, very few cities are meeting the goals they’ve set.So far, it has been determined that only 13 cities have made a sufficient amount of progress toward meeting their housing construction targets for 2017. 526 other cities, including Los Angeles, haven’t and will now be required to fast-track the approval of some new housing development projects.Under a new law which took effect at the beginning of 2018, cities must speed up the review of developments made up of at least ten percent affordable housing units if they’ve failed to meet their objectives for market-rate housing. Municipalities that met their targets for market-rate housing but haven’t met the requirements for new affordable housing units will need to streamline the review of projects in which at least half the housing units are affordable to low-income residents.While Los Angeles is expected to meet its overall new housing construction objective by issuing permits for nearly 82,000 new homes by 2021, the city hasn’t met its goals when it comes to the construction of enough affordable housing units. Out of 45,820 new units, the city has issued permits for, since 2014, less than ten percent are classified as affordable to low-income residents. President of Ocean Development Amy Cyprus has a message for other developers fearful of working on projects in Los Angeles. “With some commitment, it is possible for dedicated developers to create affordable, family-ready homes in areas that have long been neglected.”What makes Ocean unique is that all of their redevelopments and sales take place South of the 10 freeway in Los Angeles. Ocean has constructed well over 1,000 units in South Los Angeles, all with off-street parking, modernized kitchens and spacious living quarters. By working closely with the community, local elected officials and neighborhoods, over the past decade Ocean has been able to help countless working families move from apartments, to affordable housing.About Ocean Development, Inc. Ocean Development, Inc. is a full service real estate development company, which develops, constructs, owns, and sells residential housing units. Its sister company, Ocean Properties, Inc., offers full service management to over 1400 units consisting of over 700 properties in the south Los Angeles area. Our mission is to provide the highest quality of affordable homes and duplexes in the south L.A. area. Our management and staff are highly qualified in the real estate investing and property management arena with more than 100 years of collective experience.Contact: Eric W.

ROHM's New High-Speed Optical Heart Rate Sensor Optimized for Measuring Blood Pressure, Stress and Vascular Age

ROHM's New High-Speed Optical Heart Rate Sensor Optimized for Measuring Blood Pressure, Stress and Vascular Age Press Release from GlobeNewsWire has been published today, Karol Rutkowski, .

Kyoto and Santa Clara, Calif., Feb. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ROHM has recently announced the availability of an optical heart rate sensor for smart bands and watches capable of measuring blood pressure, stress and vascular age at a high-speed 1024Hz sampling rate. The BH1792GLC, which is ROHM’s 2nd generation optical heart rate sensor, features its high accuracy and low power consumption. A current consumption of only 0.44mA (during heart rate measurement), the lowest in the industry*, contributes to longer operating time. And the 1024Hz sampling rate makes it possible to measure heart rate up to 32 times faster than conventional solutions while also supporting vital sign sensing such as vascular age and stress measurement demanded by the latest wearable and fitness devices.In recent years there has been a growing demand for wearables that can measure not only heart rate, but other vital signs as well such as stress and vascular age to monitor and manage health. However, measuring complicated vital signs requires an increased sampling frequency, which can lead to higher power consumption and decreased battery life.In response, ROHM leveraged original infrared filtering technology and optical sensor expertise cultivated over many years to develop a low power heart rate sensor that provides high accuracy measurement even under strong IR environments such as direct sunlight or during intense motion activities. And the high-speed sampling rate meets the continuously evolving needs of the IoT and wearable markets.A heart rate sensor evaluation board (BH1792GLC-EVK-001) for use with ROHM sensor shields that connect to open platform MCU boards (e.g. Arduino Uno) is also available for purchase from online distributors. Moving forward, ROHM will continue to develop solutions that achieve greater safety and convenience in wearable and other portable applications.*ROHM February 21, 2018 studyThe BH1792GLC
Availability: Now
Pricing: $5.30 /unit (1,000 pcs)
The BH1792GLC-EVK-001
Availability: Now
Pricing: $23.81 /unit (1 pc)
Key Features
1. Meets the growing demand for vital sign sensing
The high-speed 1024Hz sampling rate makes it possible to measure more complicated vital signs like blood pressure, stress and vascular age. And an infrared sensor is built in for sensing when the device is worn, simplifying system configuration by integrating this component into the sensor itself.
2. Original optical filter achieves high accuracy detection
An original optical filter structure integrating IR cut and green filters allows only green wavelengths to pass through, reducing susceptibility to external noise such as IR and red light by up to 10x compared with conventional solutions. This enables high accuracy detection even under noisy IR conditions, including direct sunlight and strenuous motion activity.
3. Class-leading low power consumption contributes to longer battery life
When combined with ROHM’s green LED (SMLMN2ECT) optimized for the light receiving characteristics of the heart rate sensor, the improved optical design makes it possible to achieve a class-leading low current consumption of 0.44mA (during heart rate  measurement).
In addition, unlike conventional products, a FIFO (First In First Out) buffer is added to reduce power consumption of the Host side controller (e.g. MCU, Applications Processor etc.). This decreases the power consumed by the pulse sensor, contributing to longer application battery life.
4. Optional sensor shield evaluation board facilitates sensor evaluation testing and algorithm development
A heart rate sensor evaluation board (BH1792GLC-EVK-001) for use with our sensor shield (SensorShield-EVK-001) is available for purchase through online distributors. The sensor shield supports open platform MCU boards such as Arduino Uno.
All documents and software necessary for using the evaluation board for vitals sensing can be downloaded from our support page.

During that call, GoPro’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) represented to investors that “the consumer feedback to Karma specifically, actual owners of Karma has been quite good, and so we’re feeling really good about our prospects in the future there.”The shareholder class action complaint alleges that, throughout the Class Period, GoPro and certain of its senior executive officers made false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) the market prospects for Karma were untenable due to margin challenges in an extremely competitive aerial market and a hostile regulatory environment in Europe and the United States; and (ii) as a result, defendants’ public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.On January 8, 2018, GoPro disclosed, among other things: (i) that it was reducing its global workforce by approximately 20%; (ii) that, due to “margin challenges in an extremely competitive aerial market,” the Company would be exiting the aerial market after selling its remaining Karma inventory; and (iii) that the Company would incur an estimated $23 – 33 million in restructuring charges.Following this news, shares of GoPro’s stock fell $0.96 per share, or over 12.7%, to close on January 8, 2018 at $6.56 per share, on heavy trading volume.GoPro shareholders may, no later than March 12, 2018, seek to be appointed as a lead plaintiff representative of the class through Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, or other counsel, or may choose to do nothing and remain an absent class member.  A lead plaintiff is a representative party who acts on behalf of all class members in directing the litigation.  In order to be appointed as a lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member’s claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class in the action.  Your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision of whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check prosecutes class actions in state and federal courts throughout the country.
