This new level of recognition is named for Dallas businessman, philanthropist and longtime GDBEA supporter Cary Maguire.
The keynote speaker for the program is Richard Bowen, identified by 60 Minutes and The Wall Street Journal as the Citigroup whistleblower who repeatedly warned Citi executive management about risky business practices and potential losses related to mortgage lending prior to 2008.
The Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award recognizes local companies that have made a commitment to ethical business practices and demonstrate that commitment in their everyday operations, management philosophies, and in response to crises or challenges.
A panel of judges, representing academia, business and previous award winners, reviewed submissions containing nominee companies’ ethics policies, programming, communications and review practices. A team of students from the Posey Leadership Institute at Austin College conducted site visits and interviews with the entrants. A Better Business Bureau review and qualifying rating of B+ or above is also a standing requirement for all entrants. Subsequently, the panel convened to determine those whose entries demonstrated a superior standard of ethics in action.
“These companies are great examples of ethics at work,” said Michael Webb, chairman of the award program. “They exemplify businesses operating under ethical principles and doing the right thing for their company and related stakeholders. Their work reinforces the positive, ethical values of our local business community.”
Past winners include:  Atmos Energy, Balfour Beatty Construction, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, Brinker International, Castro Roofing of Texas, CDG & Associates, Community Management Associates, Complete Landsculpture, Corgan Associates, The Container Store, Daisy Brand, Dave & Buster’s, DHD Films, EDS, Ellis: Partners in Mystery Shopping, Fluor Corp., Haven Home Health Inc., Interstate Batteries, HKS, Hospice Plus, Kahn Mechanical, Karlee, Kimberly Clark, Loveable Smiles, MRP Facility Services, Purdy-McGuire, ReGeneration Partners, Sleep Experts, The Richards Group, The Staubach Company, TD Industries, TELOS Fitness Center, Texas Institute for Surgery, Trammell Crow Company, TXU, Weir’s Furniture Village, Wishbone Graphics.

The Dallas-area companies that are also ABEA winners include Community Management Associates, Corgan Associates, Daisy Brand, EDS, Kimberly-Clark, The Richards Group, TDIndustries, Texas Instruments and Trammell Crow Company.
Since 2000 the Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award has partnered with business associations and academic centers. These partners include Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics and Public Responsibility at SMU, Financial Planning Association of Dallas/Fort Worth, the North Texas Ethics Association and Success North Dallas.

Permanent Easy Remove & Bypass iCloud Lock iPhone 6S,6 & iPad iOS 9/iOS 10 Tools

New York, NY, USA, 04/27/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

The Apple iCloud Activation Lock is a feature that allows users to lock down an iPhone (or iPad). It requires the entry of an Apple ID before the device can be used again. It’s part of the excellent “Find My iPhone” service and is extremely useful for many reasons. But it can also be a real pain if you or someone else obtains an iPhone that has another Apple ID attached to it. That iPhone is then ‘locked’ with an activate request, which can only be unlocked by the previous account that was registered on it. Only once the activation lock is removed, the device can be used with another Apple ID.

How to Remove & Bypass iCloud Lock? Many users are searching for a working way to bypass & remove iCloud Account Activation Lock on iPhone 6S, 6, 6 Plus, 5S, 5C, 5, 4S and iPad Air/Mini 4, 3, 2 iOS 9, 9.2, 9.3.1/iOS 10. The good news is that a new software is now available from iCloud Remover. Since the iPhone is a very popular device, the iCloud Activation Lock is a common problem that most users have. It can happen to anyone due to many different reasons. For example, there are many users who may have this problem (with the activation lock feature) simply because they bought a used iPhone device either online or from a second hand retailer. Normally the seller is required to provide the Apple ID and password along with the device, but unfortunately in many situations this is not the case. If you ever decide to buy a used iPhone don’t forget to ask for the Apple login credentials.

iCloud Remover is a company that allow users to turn off/disable and bypass the iCloud activation lock. This new software works not only on all iPhone models but also on iPads as well.

You should turn OFF all of the services that are shown here, as you may not want to sync other data, and then toggle ON the “Find My iPhone” service. You will then be shown a prompt indicating that this will disable “Find My iPhone” for the primary account, as this feature can only be used with a single iCloud account at a time.

The new software will disable and remove iCloud Lock for anyone who has a device linked to it. Regardless of whether it is due to the fact that you are locked out of your own unit (and are in a place like Saudi Arabia, which has no Apple Store to present invoice),or that you bought a used unit from a seller who did not remove their iCloud login details from it (intentionally or unintentionally).

Little Earl Lost A Leg, Gained A Second Chance at Life


Dallas, TX, 04/28/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Operation Kindness – North Texas’ original and largest no-kill animal shelter – recently partnered with Hurst Animal Services to help save the life of Little Earl, a terrier/pitbull mix with a severe injury to his front right leg. The municipal shelter did not have the equipment on-site to treat Little Earl’s injury, and he soon became at risk of being euthanized to make space. With only moments to spare, Hurst Animal Services reached out to Operation Kindness for medical assistance before it was too late.

“I personally made the trip to Hurst Animal Services to ensure that Little Earl would have a speedy and safe transfer to our on-site medical facility,” says Jim Hanophy, CEO of Operation Kindness.

“He was immediately treated by our team of veterinarians, who performed X-rays and decided it was best to amputate his leg. We helped Little Earl through the recovery process, teaching him to walk again and training him to curb a few of his adolescent behaviors. He was quickly adopted by a wonderful woman who understands how to care for animals with special needs.”

With the help of the on-site medical hospital, Operation Kindness is able to save many more pets like Little Earl. Last year alone, Operation Kindness saved the lives and found forever homes for 4,519 animals, providing care to more than 5,000 animals, many of which would have been euthanized. The on-site medical hospital at Operation Kindness conducted more than 5,163 surgeries; 13,169 exams; 1,587 spays and 1,541 neuters; and provided more than $83,000 worth of medicine.

Of the 4,519 animals that Operation Kindness found forever homes for in 2015, more than 50 percent of those animals came to Operation Kindness from municipal shelters across the Metroplex. Operation Kindness partners with municipal shelters like Dallas Animal Services, Hurst Animal Services and many others to help those shelters with overpopulation. More than 50 percent of Operation Kindness’ shelter space is devoted to municipal shelter transfers; the rest of the space contains surrenders from first responders, good Samaritans and owners.

Operation Kindness will celebrate their 40th anniversary this year with the knowledge that they have saved the lives of more than 85,000 dogs and cats. As the no-kill shelter continues to grow and serve pets like Little Earl, their expenses grow too. Unlike other nonprofits, Operation Kindness does not receive funding from the government, instead relying solely on funds from donations, grants and adoption fees to care for homeless animals. On May 12, from 12 a.m. until 11:59 p.m., Operation Kindness is asking members of the North Texas community to consider making a donation to the no-kill shelter as a part of a Day of Giving. On this day only, a generous donor has agreed to match all gifts up to $5,000 – to ensure they will make double the impact. To participate in Operation Kindness’ Day of Giving, please visit

About Operation Kindness

Founded in 1976, Operation Kindness is the original and largest no-kill shelter in North Texas. Its mission is to care for homeless cats and dogs in a no-kill environment until each is adopted into responsible homes and to advocate humane values and behavior. In 2016, Operation Kindness will celebrate their 40th anniversary and their achievement of saving more than 80,000 animals since their inception. Annually the shelter assists more than 5,000 dogs and cats, caring for an average of 300 animals daily with another 100-150 animals in foster homes.

Join Operation Kindness in their mission to care for homeless animals by becoming a member of the Happy Tails Society. This group of dedicated friends provides a monthly gift to help pay for the medical care, medicine, food, shelter, nurturing and behavior training the pets need to have a second chance at life.

Liquipel Offers Only Smartphone Protection With Up To $150 Limited Warranty


Dallas, TX, United States of America, 04/26/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Protection Against Broken Screens

Package Endorsed by X-Games Gold Medalist Nyjah Huston Is Available Exclusively at RadioShack

Liquipel, LLC (, an industry leader in device-protection technology, introduces its newest creation in its line of mobile device security today, the SafeGuard Protection Package – available exclusively at RadioShack stores and for a limited time. The innovative package creates an additional layer of protection, by backing a product with the world’s first and only 12-month limited warranty, which covers the customer’s screen, rather than the screen protector only, for up to $150 with no deductible. The combination of the Liquipel nano-shock impact SKINS screen protectors and impact cases or bumpers are sleek, stylish and affordable. This concept has already caught the attention of someone who knows first hand how important impact protection is: gold-medal street skater Nyjah Huston.

“My gnarliest tricks are when I’m skating big stuff,” said Nyjah Huston, who has won seven consecutive X Games Street Skateboarding gold medals. “But perfecting those tricks means falling down — a lot. With the Liquipel Safeguard Protection Package, at least now I don’t need to worry about my phone every time I bail.”



With a MSRP of $39.99, the SafeGuard Protection Package provides a simple solution that not only looks great but also delivers on exceptional quality and value. Depending on the package, there may be two SKIN screen protectors, one each for the front and back of the phone, both acting as literal shock absorbers while also maintaining a smooth, glass-like surface. The SKIN is made from a hybrid of protective substances that are highly resilient to impact, which Liquipel combines in such a way that provides for amazing performance. These protective substances, which have important applications, including the military, were created with device owners in mind. Additionally, by using our bubble-release technology we are able to ensure a flat, bubble-free even adhesion. The third part is the Impact Bumper or Case that completely encases the phone’s outer rim, guarding against possible damage if the device falls on its sides or corners.

Liquipel is so confident in its technology that every SafeGuard Protection Package comes with a 12-month limited warranty. And while other screen protection warranties only cover the replacement cost of the failed film, if a SafeGuard-protected screen is damaged, Liquipel will pay for what really matters to the consumer: a brand new screen up to $150 (terms and conditions apply, see

“RadioShack understands the value our customers place on their electronics,” said Bruce Hawver, chief merchandising officer at RadioShack. “The SafeGuard protection offering from Liquipel, sold exclusively at RadioShack, is a great example of the type of innovation our customers expect from us and we’re proud to deliver. We encourage customers to stop by their neighborhood store for an interactive demonstration of the SafeGuard program before making their purchase decision.”

Liquipel’s full line of screen protection products, including its SKINS and ION-Glass with blue light protection, are now available at all RadioShack locations nationwide and online at The SafeGuard Protection Package is available for the iPhone 5SE, 6/6S, 6 Plus /6S Plus and the Samsung Galaxy S6/S7.

All The Tea In Chinatown: Niu Gu Expands Its Extensive 30+ Page Tea Selection


Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, 04/26/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

The unrivaled Asian scene in Las Vegas’ Chinatown boasts over 140 different Asian restaurants. But among them, only one gives you a menu so vast that it requires over 30 pages to detail the incredible selection of high quality imported teas from a variety of provinces in mainland China. That’s Niu Gu for you, a new, spotless Chinese restaurant located in Chinatown that stands apart from the crowded strip. Niu Gu dazzles with dishes that showcase the authentic tastes of China and a tea menu designed to show the West, that Chinese tea comes in more flavors than just the typical pot of stale black tea that is served in almost every Chinese restaurant from here to New York.
In fact, Chinese tea is much more complex than most people would ever guess. Niu Gu aims to give its guests a true taste of traditional Chinese tea culture by serving organically-sourced teas made by tea growing families and tea masters from the various regions of China. The extensive tea list is more than just page after page of tea – it details everything about each tea including the type, province, geographical location, information about the grower and tea maker, farm altitude, plus harvest and production dates. A farm-to-cup concept of this depth is the first of its kind here in the states and seeks to turn more people into tea connoisseurs.
Most people don’t realize the incredible health benefits fresh-from-the-farm tea can bring. In China, drinking the right tea in the right way is everything. Joe Muscaglione, managing partner, together with Niu Gu’s owners renowned Chef Jimmy Li and his wife Jing Li created the tea service at Niu Gu to stand apart from other restaurants and give diners a taste of one of the most important aspects of Chinese culture – tea. Pioneering something that will probably catch on like wildfire, Li and Muscaglione introduced the farm to cup teas and serve them in traditional Gong Fu ceremony at the restaurant. Li’s wife hails from the Shandong province of China, a place that’s big on tea culture, making her the ideal hostess of the restaurant’s tea ceremonies which involve the presentation of tea leaves to the guests and table-side preparation.
Niu Gu’s tea list includes tasting notes, info and photos of Niu Gu’s artisan tea producers and their tea making steps, including harvest and production pics. The list, quickly approaching 50 pages, features over 30 farm to cup teas, but Joe is quick to point out  “It’s not about how many teas we have. It’s about being sure we know the direct source. That is the only way we are assured that every step, from farm to cup, our teas are chemical free and herbicide and pesticide free.”
Most teas on the market today are hit so hard with chemicals that they do the body more harm than good. Unless sourced directly from the farmer, one can never tell. Regulations in many tea growing regions are lax at best and the use of pesticides is wide spread. Even those who claim they are organic are often not.
“Chef Jimmy Li’s has tremendous culinary skill and his impeccable high standard for quality is something we mirror in our dining service and tea program” states Muscaglione convincingly.
“Our teas are as carefully sourced as our kitchen ingredients. For our tea service we use bottled Fiji Waters and they are served to you in traditional Gongfu ceremony, you are drinking from authentic Chinese tea pots and cups and learning about about our Chinese history and culture too” adds Chef Li.
The standard of excellence is threaded intricately like a fine Chinese tapestry through Niu Gu, from the spotless modern space and impeccable tea presentation to Chef Li’s dazzling and eclectic menu of brilliant Chinese dishes. In addition to Chef Li uses only the finest ingredients, earning several highly-coveted accolades from foodies and food critics alike. Las Vegas Food Critic John Curtas declared ” They are the best new Chinese restaurant ” then added ” I really feel that they are going to start to upgrade Chinese food all along Spring Mountain Rd and in that area. Jimmy Li is a serious Chef. This is serious Chinese food, for serious people who want to taste upscale stuff ” reports “Li dazzles” adding “upscale Chinese restaurant with decidedly downscale prices. Niu Gu is soon to start showing up on all kinds of best of lists.”
Teas will be served in traditional Gong Fu Ceremony. This incredible tea experience is rather reasonably priced for these rare, hand-picked teas with costs ranging from $7 to $18 per pot for two people. Flavors go beyond basic, with delicate white teas, refreshingly meditative green teas, full-bodied oolong teas, sensual black teas, rare yellow teas, smooth pu’erh teas, and herbal teas including chrysanthemum and honeysuckle flower.. Tea aficionados indulge and look passionately at the tea menu,  which reads like an encyclopedia on the tea of China.
The deep tea program is brilliantly supported with knockout dishes from Niu Gu’s kitchen. Standouts include Chef Jimmy Li’s Cumin BBQ Rack of Lamb, his spectacular rice, meat or vegetable stir fry and fesh seafood dishes have had foodies raving. Other not to be missed items are the cold beef tongue and cucumber salad, chicken and scallion salad, garlic steamed oysters, the house made organic tofu and Niu Gu’s signature slow cooked braised Angus beef short rib.
Taste the true beauty of China at Niu Gu, from the end of your chopsticks to the bottom of your tea cup.
Reservations are not required however, they are highly recommended.
Call 702-570-6363 to reserve your dining and/or tea experience.

More than 30 (Non-government Organizations) NGO’s countrywide have benefited from the Kilimanjaro challenge, with several of the smaller NGO’s relying heavily on the support of the funds raised by the annual event.

Store Here Self Storage Management Announces: Call Here Self Storage Call Center


Orange, CA, USA, 04/25/2016 /SubmitPressRelease123/

Store Here Self Storage Management announces the opening of its self storage call center, Call Here.

Call Here’s goal is to give self storage owners and operators a cost effective method to drive more rental activity and process current tenant payments.

Call Here’s base offering is a free service to the storage owner. Storage owners using the free basic service incur no additional costs for using Call Here and its sales agents.

Typical self storage call centers charge anywhere from $300 to $500 a month to offer a similar suite of services. Call Here represents a potential savings of $6,000 a year per property.

Ryan Rogers, a managing partner of Store Here Management and the founder of Call Here, recently said, “Store Here is driven to innovate all aspects of self storage property management, and offering a free call center to clients and others in the industry is a big innovation. We are using a mix of innovative technologies, ground breaking billing strategies and a network of at-home agents to offer an alternative to traditional call center operations and traditional fee schedules.”

Tron Jordheim, Business Development Manager at Store Here Management said, “In my 16 years of running call centers I can say that we have married the best practices of the various call centers we used to be involved with and turned to whole model upside down to benefit storage owners. Not only does Call Here offer a free model we also offer a model that can make the client money. ”
