New Niche Stock Image Website, PhotoAbility, Offers Unique Photos of Models With Disabilities

No Comments 29 January 2014


Fort Lauderdal, Florida (PRWEB) January 28, 2014

Deborah Davis, co-owner of a new stock photography website with images of people of disabilities, became part of the disabled community when a car accident left her paralyzed from the chest down at 18 years old. The 49 year-old mother of two is announcing the launch of her new niche company, PhotoAbility, whose goal is to change how the public views, accepts and welcomes people with disabilities in mainstream society around the world.

PhotoAbility features a wide selection of stock images of authentic models with disabilities focused in lifestyle, leisure and travel settings. Images available include diverse stock photos of people in wheelchairs, amputees, the hearing and visually impaired and more. These photos capture the models enjoying playgrounds, going to prom, playing sports, shopping, working, relaxing at the beach, dating and getting married, traveling and much more.

Companies from all industries in need of original images that express a message of inclusion and diversity will find an array of high quality, rights managed and royalty free stock photos from which to choose for marketing and advertising campaigns.

PhotoAbility represents the one billion people with disabilities across the globe, and is one more fighting voice for the entire disabled community. This unique market, together with their family and friends, spends billions of dollars all over the world in travel and lifestyle sectors every year. However, this powerful and growing segment of society is rarely seen or acknowledged in advertising or editorial images. PhotoAbility has resolved to bring the disabled community back into mainstream media.

Increasing the positive imagery of persons with disabilities, and those who use mobility devices such as wheelchairs, canes, walkers, guide dogs, etc., will not only encourage further inclusion and accommodation, but will help to eliminate the fear and negative stereotyping that so often permeates all levels of society.

Industry leaders, graphic design and advertising professionals and publication editors can use PhotoAbility’s offering of high quality stock photos to incorporate a renewed message of inclusion into their advertisements and publications, extending a welcoming message to this significant market of people with disabilities, their friends and families.

“Stock image buyers can now find an exclusive source for creative, positive and refreshing imagery depicting individuals, from youths to seniors, who happen to have disabilities,” said Deborah Davis, co-founder of PhotoAbility.net. “These images can depict an inclusive message to customers and show how companies value the economic impact of customers with varying physical abilities.”

At PhotoAbility.net, visitors can browse the photo gallery, purchase images or contact the company to inquire about creating custom photos shoots representing specific interests and properties. PhotoAbility can provide anything from a general photo concept to a full marketing analysis, as well as models and advice on how to authentically and realistically portray people with disabilities in a natural setting.

Photographers are invited to submit their photos for inclusion and portfolio hosting in the PhotoAbility library, as well. All photos selected can earn up to 45 percent commission on each sale.

Not sure where to start? Browse the PhotoAbility gallery or visit the site’s “Editor’s Choice” page to review a selection of photographs that reflect the beauty and uniqueness of their stock photos. Photos can be viewed individually or as part of a convenient slide show.

Increasing the positive imagery of persons with disabilities and who use mobility devices such as wheelchairs, canes, walkers, guide dogs etc., will not only encourage further inclusion by increasing awareness that we want to participate and should be equally accommodated, but will help to eliminate the fear and negative stereotyping that so often permeates all levels of society.

We, through our image gallery, hope that by increasing awareness of the value in maintaining and making structural and attitudinal changes, it will encourage and sustain the participation of those with differing abilities around the world.

We encourage you, as industry leaders, and professionals who make editorial and creative decisions to take a good look at how you can incorporate inclusion images and a welcoming message to this significant market.

PhotoAbility was established in March 2012 by Bill Forrester and Deborah Davis with the goal of providing high quality, unique, non-medically oriented imagery of persons with disabilities for purchase by the advertising, marketing and media sectors. The Commercial Stock Image Library specializes in positive and “Inclusive images of people with a disability in leisure, lifestyle and travel settings.

The 2000+ inclusive images depicted in the PhotoAbility gallery are designed to impact attitudinal bias, change perception and provide motivation to eliminate and reduce social, structural and professional barriers. A wave of change reflected in popular media and advertising can make an impact on laws and attitudes around the globe, and on how many with differing abilities view themselves.

How long should the meteor shower be going on?

No Comments 29 January 2014

Question by Jordyn: How long should the meteor shower be going on?
Don’t shoot this down as a stupid question. Yes, I know they are out mid august every year, but last year they continued after the main one for a while.
My main question is, will there still be some meteors next weekend? I have an event to be at where it would be nice to go see them with my group.

Best answer:

Answer by campbelp2002
The Perseid meteor shower peaks on the new-Moon night of Sunday–Monday, August 12–13.

The Perseids have a broad peak. So don’t despair if clouds are forecast for Sunday night — or if work obligations prevent you from staying up until dawn on Monday.

The meteor rate increases to roughly 30 per hour in the predawn hours on Saturday, 45 per hour on Sunday morning, and 80 per hour before the sky starts to get light on Monday morning. That’s for a single observer at a dark-sky site in the north temperate latitudes.

On any given night, activity starts slowly in the evening but picks up by 11 p.m., when the radiant gets reasonably high in the sky. The meteor rate increases steadily through the night as the radiant rises higher, peaking just before the sky starts to get light, roughly 1½ to 2 hours before sunrise.

For the most pleasant viewing experience, find a spot far from any city lights. Perseids tend to be relatively bright as meteors go, but you’ll still see more the darker your skies are. Bring a reclining chair so that you can view high in the sky in comfort; there’s no point in filling half your field of view with trees. Don’t forget warm, mosquito-proof clothes or, better, a sleeping bag. No matter how hot the days are, it can get surprisingly chilly under a clear sky late at night, especially whan you’re inactive. And for many people, the most important accessory is bug spray for the parts of you that remain exposed!

It doesn’t really matter where in the sky you watch; meteors can appear anywhere. Just watch where it’s darkest, usually straight up. It’s probably best not to stare directly at the radiant, because meteors there leave short trails.

ThreatMetrix Enters 2014 as One of the Largest Global Identity and Fraud Prevention Networks

No Comments 29 January 2014


San Jose, CA (PRWEB) January 29, 2014

ThreatMetrix, the fastest growing provider of context-based authentication and advanced Web fraud prevention solutions, today announced a compilation of record 2013 milestones and its emergence as one of the largest fully anonymized global identity and fraud prevention networks in the world.

In 2013, the rules governing global cybercrime protection changed. Global governments now assign more importance to individual consumer privacy than to the rapidly increasing financial losses online retailers, enterprises and financial institutions face at the hands of highly sophisticated global cybercriminals.

We work with many of the worlds most recognized and trusted brands, financial institutions, enterprises and government agencies, said Reed Taussig, president and CEO, ThreatMetrix. Today, we protect over 500 million transactions each month and over 160 million active online accounts. Every transaction is screened by ThreatMetrix to provide businesses with confidence and trust that they are servicing an authenticated and valuable customer and not a cybercriminal. The ThreatMetrix Global Trust Intelligence Network (The Network), which is completely passive and fully consumer anonymized, has proven to be the right solution to satisfy the competing agendas of consumer privacy and security.

During 2013, ThreatMetrix made several significant advances in key areas, including:

ArmorActive Releases ADA Compliant iPad Enclosure Wall Mount

No Comments 29 January 2014


Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) January 29, 2014

ArmorActive designed the Wedge iPad wall mount for the end user and for their clients. The Wedge only protrudes 4 inches from the wall when an iPad enclosure is attached, minimizing obstruction of traffic for anyone walking by. This is especially beneficial to the visually impaired. Aside from being more space efficient, the Wedge is also designed with the optimal viewing angle for those in wheelchairs all the way up to the average american adult when mounted at the 48 ADA standard height.

We strive to meet the demands of our customer’s needs with every new product we develop. The Wedge is a response to the increasing demand for ADA compliance in our iPad kiosk solutions, said ArmorActive CMO, Nick Ames.

The smaller form factor of the Wedge tablet wall mount compliments 7 inch tablets, which are gaining traction with consumers and businesses alike. Along with being smaller, the Wedge is exceptionally easy to install. The back of the mount has a rectangle cut out, specially designed to fit over a standard dual plug electrical outlet and securely fastens through the electrical outlet box or outlet itself. The cavity inside the mount has the capacity to house a small power adapter and charging cable. Alternatively, this space can be used to securely store an ArmorActive Power over Ethernet (PoE) adapter. ArmorActive offers the Wedge in powder coated satin black and brushed stainless steel.

ArmorActive has also updated the design of their Sentinel iPad stand floor kiosk to meet ADA requirements. This new version of the Sentinel meets ADA requirements by reducing the height from its predecessor, making it more accessible to those using wheelchairs.

ArmorActive will be featuring their new tablet kiosk products, as an exclusive partner with Mobile Technology, Inc. (MTI), at this years Euroshop in Dusseldorf, Germany, February 16-20th. The booth is Stand A40, located in Hall 6.

About ArmorActive

ArmorActive specializes in purpose-built solutions for deploying tablet computers into any business landscape. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of service to every customer with our team of account managers who understand every phase of a tablet deployment, no matter how large or small the scale of the project.
