myCharge Introduces New Line of HUB™ Portable Chargers that Charge the iPhone 6 30 Percent Faster

Hyper-ChargeTM Technology exceeds iPhone 6 out-of-box charging speeds

World travelers, tech geeks and multiple device users all face the same challenge of keeping personal electronic devices charged. Not only does keeping a device at full power typically require staying close to an outlet, it also means carrying around a plethora of cables and wall chargers.

The new myCharge HUB Series of portable chargers is the all-in-one charging solution that not only eliminates the bird’s nest of tangled wires; it also delivers world class, industry-leading safety & performance in an incredibly small footprint.

The anodized aluminum line of HUB portable chargers makes powering smartphones and tablets on-the-go incredibly convenient.  All models, including the 3000mAh HUB mini, retailing at $69.00, come with built-in Apple Lightning and micro-USB charging cables. And, the 6000mAh HUB Plus, retails at $99.00, and the 9000mAh HUB Max models, retails at $129.00, also feature built-in wall prongs, making recharging as simple as plugging into any outlet.

The revolutionary new 12000mAh HUB Ultra can be fully re-charged in as little as four hours via the included advanced technology charging dock and retails at $149.99.

myCharge’s exclusive technologies deliver superior performance against all competitors, and include:

  • Hyper-Charge™ charges smartphones – including the new iPhone 6 Plus – up to 30% faster than the Apple-supplied charger.
  • Safe Cell™ Technology delivers 12 layers of battery and device protection against over-charge, under-charge, over-current, over-temperature and short circuit.
  • Rapid Recharge™ Technology recharges myCharge power banks up to four times faster than competitor’s chargers.
  • Power stay™ Technology retains up to 60% of a full charge for up to one year.
  • SmartSense™ Technology ensures device compatibility eliminating those annoying “not compatible” messages as seen from many chargers in the market.
  • Parallel Charging Technology simultaneously charges a mobile device and the charger at the same time, minimizing total charge time.

“Our HUB series of battery chargers delivers everything a mobile device user could want in a backup battery charger,” said myCharge President Jim Dara. “From built in charging cables to integrated wall prongs and massive power storage potential, the HUB series is the ‘dream charger’ for the true tech junkie or world traveler.”

The HUB line of battery chargers is available for purchase via the myCharge website and at retailers nationwide. More information about the Hub chargers and the entire myCharge product line can be found at www.mycharge.com.

Mukti: Free to be Born Again

Names have been changed to protect the innocent
How one Hindu refugee breaks taboos to discuss cleansing in Islamized Indian Subcontinent

Between 1947, when India was partitioned, to the 2001 census, Muslim-majority Bangladesh lost over 49 million indigenous minority Hindus.

Most of the world never knew.

In “Mukti: Free to be Born Again: Partitions of Indian Subcontinent – Islamism, Hinduism, Leftism and Liberation of the Faithful,” State University of New York Professor Dr. Sachi Dastidar describes the most important untold story of the 20th century. It is a message of hope and a depiction of how faith provides liberation from oppression.

“I have no power to protect individuals who shared their stories of injustice and subjugation with me,” Dastidar said. “I have changed their names to prevent them from receiving possible repercussion for sharing the truth. In the midst of despair, there are courageous defenders of the oppressed.”

Dastidar is part of an indigenous pre-Islamic Hindu family of Bangladesh and, perhaps, the only, among tens of millions of Hindu refugees, to return back from India. He is first to break the taboo of discussing displacement and cleansing and has been invited to two Congressional hearings in Washington, D.C., to testify for the plight of the non-Muslim minorities in a Muslim-majority subcontinent. Dastidar was also invited to be a keynote speaker at an international conference in Bangladesh, in 2005, and has lectured in India and Pakistan.

“This story is based in Bengal – the present-day Bangladesh, and West Bengal and Tripura states of India,” Dastidar said. “It is an area which witnessed three unnatural, large-scale mass killings in the last part of the 20th century. Yet, no one’s been held for those mass killings.”

A New York PRODUCT YOU MIGHT RECOGNIZE….
San Bernardo Ice Cream Scoops Up Another Inc. 5000 Exclusive Ranking of Fastest Growing Private Companies

Inc. magazine named San Bernardo Ice Cream (www.SanBernardoIceCream.com) to its 34th annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents the most comprehensive look at the most important segment of the economy—America’s independent entrepreneurs.  

 San Bernardo Ice Cream is bucking the trend. The Harvard Review shows that only 30% of family owned businesses survive into the second generation and remain family owned.  As the second generation owner and President of San Bernardo Ice Cream, Jonathan Tammara, is taking his family’s know-how in selling pint size scoops of tasty tradition from strength to a flavorsome industry path.

Since taking over the reins in 2010, Tammara has led the company to unprecedented levels of growth in several key areas, with a strong focus on retail and international sales. He has orchestrated a 300% increase in their international sales and launched the company’s new retail division for two brands, San Bernardo for the company’s signature, premium flavors and JT’s Ice Cream for their value brand.  Combined the two brands are now in nearly 1,000 stores in less than two years.

“Over the last few years we have been expanding into retail for the first time in 20 years and this has had a significant impact in our growth.  It will continue to be a focus for us going forward and the increased brand awareness is also helping to expand food service sales,” said Tammara. “We have had great success along the East Coast from the Mid-Atlantic up through New York and New England and have recently made strides in the Midwest. We are excited to see where the next few years will take us.

“We wanted to give the retail consumer a quality alternative to the premium brands at a non-premium price while offering them unique, appealing flavors. We did this by increasing our flavor selection in the premium and super premium markets.  Consumers are more savvy and sophisticated than ever before.  They want something more than just vanilla and we want to be the brand for consumers to escape from the everyday and try something different like Cactus Pear or Cannoli,” Tammara said.  It has been this foresight and ingenuity that has led to the growth that landed San Bernardo on this prestigious list.

“The story of this year’s Inc. 5000 is the story of great leadership. In an incredibly competitive business landscape, it takes something extraordinary to take your company to the top,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don’t achieve that kind of success by accident.”
