Suzanne Somers’ Palm Springs Compound

From: TopTenRealEstateDeals.com

The world has known and loved Suzanne Somers from her 1973 break-though cameo as the blonde beauty in the Thunderbird in American Grafitti to ditzy character, Chrissy Snow, on Threes Company from 1977 through 1981, and as Carol Lambert on Step by Step from 1991 through 1998. In between, her life was a whirlwind with Playboy pictorials, spokeswoman for Thighmaster and another TV series that ran for two years, Shes the Sheriff.

Just as beautiful today as she was back in the 1970s, this powerhouse of a woman has long been one of Hollywood’s major celebrities. In addition to her television roles, Suzanne has been a Las Vegas singer and dancer, talk show host, Broadway performer and USO star for the United States military. She is almost as famous for her commercials promoting health and beauty products – she was recently named to the Infomercial Hall of Fame for her legendary role as the Thighmaster pitch person. She has shared her self-help tips, beauty secrets and nutrition in over twenty books she has published.

Suzanne and her TV host husband, Alan Hamel, have created an earthy and at the same time glamorous Palm Springs, California estate which is now back on the market. Modeled after Loustau De Baumaniere in Provence, France, the Somers-Hamel compound is pure romantic sophistication and is surrounded by privacy. On 73 acres and set into the side of a craggy mountainside above the valley in Mesa Canyon, the couple has combined their love of nature and elegance by bringing out the best in both with their use of contrast. Imagine crystal chandeliers twinkling against natural rock and reclaimed wood . . . rough against smooth, soft against hard . . . all in perfect balance. To add even more intrigue, access is via a private funicular, a golf cart or a hillside of stone steps – but no cars.

The entire estate includes five buildings to explore with 10,000 square feet of pavilions. One houses the master suite, another dining and living room, a separate two-room kitchen and wine cellar and a stone guest house designed in the 1920s by Albert Frey. There is also an outdoor amphitheater carved into the mountain that seats 50, has a dance floor, as well as a pool, spa, hiking trails and natural waterfall that spills musically down the hillside.

Suzanne Somers and Alan Hamel have listed their romantic, private Palm Springs retreat, asking $ 14,500,000. The home was first listed in 2008 for $ 35 million. The listing agent is Joyce Rey of Coldwell Banker Previews International in Beverly Hills.

Richardson, TX (PRWEB) June 16, 2014

DeviceFidelity Inc. today announced the worlds first combined module for adding multi-mode Wireless Charging and Near Field Communications (NFC) capabilities to iOS devices. The module allows iOS accessory makers to rapidly create products simultaneously supporting both the Power Matters Alliance (PMA) and Wireless Power Consortium (Qi) standards for wireless charging in combination with a certified NFC platform. The module utilizes a SIM as a secure element and provides a robust API, allowing app developers to interface with the NFC and wireless charging functions. The module is designed to ensure a slim form fitting accessory design, while ensuring maximum performance.

There is a rapidly emerging ecosystem of add-on products that leverage intelligent communications with an iOS app along with adding new functionality never before experienced on iOS devices we like to call Appcessories,said Deepak Jain, CEO and Co-Founder of DeviceFidelity. We found that wireless charging and Near Field Communication are a natural fit for an iOS accessory, both technologies are natively absent from iOS devices but also carry a high demand from consumers

The module will be available this summer to all parties interested in creating smart products for iOS devices. The first consumer accessories based on the module are expected to roll out commercially by the end of the year. The module is self-contained and the only thing that an accessory makers need to do is add their industrial design and combine it with their manufacturing prowess. The module by itself will be certified to be compatible with all NFC requirements, as well as meet the requirements of two of the most popular wireless charging standards, Qi and PMA. In addition, the module will be certified for mobile payment by major payment networks Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.

The module provides full compatibility with current DeviceFidelity iOS API, allowing for all existing applications created for the DeviceFidelity iOS ecosystem to have forward and backward compatibility. In addition, the move to a SIM based secure element in the architecture allows for full compliance with Mobile Network Operator NFC deployment plans, essentially allowing the reuse of the same SIM for NFC in Android and iOS devices.

The Qi standard by the Wireless Power Consortium allow for the inductive electrical power transfer over distances of up to 4 cm, and is backed by companies such as Texas Instruments, Phillips, Nokia, Sanyo, Huawei and Visteon (formerly Ford). The Powermat standard by Power Matters Alliance promotes inductive and resonant analog power transfer, digital transceiver communication for policy setting and monitoring with extensible APIs, as well as cloud based power management. PMA is backed by Duracell (Proctor & Gamble), AT&T, Starbucks and General Motors. Both standards have been widely adopted by handset and smart device makers worldwide, and products supporting either technology are being released rapidly worldwide.

DeviceFidelity has a long history of bringing smart accessory solutions to iOS devices, and the current iPhone NFC cases supporting Isis Mobile Wallet available commercially through Verizon Wireless and AT&T in the US are based on DeviceFidelity technology. The smart APIs developed by DeviceFidelity for iOS devices have already been licensed by several hundred developer organizations, looking to create iOS NFC solutions and to expand into mobile security, transit, loyalty and physical access use cases.

Albany, New York (PRWEB) June 12, 2014

With the ever rising demand for the minerals and metals, the need for surface mining is increasing and has led to a direct positive effect on the surface mining market. According to EIA, the world coal consumption is increasing at the rate of 1.3% per year, which is extracted mostly from the surface and the underground activities. As per the report of Hartman and Mutmansky (2002), in USA the surface mining contributes about 85% of all mineral exploitation (metallic ore 98%, non metallic ore 97% and coal 61%). Beside coal, the demand for other minerals and metals such as gold, chromium, nickel and iron ore is also rising, hence we can think of the overall positive impact on the surface mining market.

Browse the full Surface Mining Market report: http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/surface-mining-market.html.

The surface mining market can be segmented on the basis of methodology, minerals extracted, and the geographical locations of the surface mining regions and companies. According to the technology involved, the surface mining can be classified as strip mining, mountain removal mining and open pit mining. Strip mining is applied when the mineral deposits and the surface of the ground are near to each other. Mountain removal mining is a kind of surface mining that involves the mining of the summit ridge of a mountain. Open cast or the open pit mining is the method of removal of ores and minerals from a pit. Open cast mines that produce dimension stones and the building materials are called quarries. According to the mineral extracted mining can be divided as the metallic ore mining, non metallic ore mining and the coal mining. Metallic ore mining involves extraction of zinc, gold, silver, copper, lead and others. Non metallic ore mining involves extraction of lime, salt, phosphates and others.

Regional segmentation can be done on the basis of the location of surface mining companies and the major mining regions of the world. Major surface mining companies are located in the United States and Canada (North America), United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and Denmark (European region), China, India, Australia and Indonesia (Asia Pacific region), South Africa and Nigeria (Middle East and Africa) and Brazil in RoW (rest of World). The U.S nonmetallic mineral and quarrying industry includes around 3300 companies. Major regions where surface mining is done are the United States, Canada, Mexico, South Africa Kazakhstan, Peru, Ukraine, India, China, Indonesia, Angola, Chile, Brazil and Australia. According to a media release, about 75% of the world’s gold mining companies are headquartered in Canada.

Increasing demands for metallic and non metallic minerals, abundance of reserves that can be exploited using surface mining, less capital requirement as compared to underground and marine mining and increasing energy consumption are the factors that are driving the surface mining market. Stringent environmental regulations and difficulties related to land acquisition can act as the restraint in the surface mining market. With the advancements in mining technologies, growing concerns among countries regarding energy security and increasing energy demand, the opportunities for the surface mining market are expected to be high.
