The Canada Digital Adoption Program is a federal government initiative that helps SMBs adopt digital technologies and tools to grow their businesses.
As a CDAP Digital Advisor, Customerization will provide one-on-one advice and guidance to Canadian SMBs looking to improve their digital capabilities. Customerization will be helping Canadian businesses across the country to identify the right approach to modernizing their technology architecture, guiding them on the principles of smart choice of software tools and technologies for their businesses, and providing advice on how to best use them.
What is CDAP, and who can benefit from it?
The Canada Digital Adoption Program is part of the Government of Canada's Innovation and Skills Plan, a multi-year strategy to make Canada a world leader in innovation and create good, well-paying jobs for the middle class.
CDAP aims to help businesses across Canada become more productive, competitive, and efficient. By adopting digital technologies, businesses can grow revenues and create new jobs. CDAP will also help businesses save time and money and improve their customer service.
CDAP consists of two streams:
1. Grow your business online stream will help up to 90,000 small businesses take advantage of e-commerce opportunities. Eligible businesses will receive a micro-grant of up to $2,400 to help with the costs related to adopting digital technologies.
2. Boost your business technology under the CDAP stream provides funding for businesses to receive training and professional services to help them adopt new technologies. This stream is specifically for businesses that are not ready to adopt digital technologies but want to learn more about how to do so.
How can you boost your digital technology?
As an output of Stream 2 of the grant, CDAP provides a way for small businesses to get help from an advisor who the Government approves of Canada. This means that the advisor has been through a rigorous review process and has the necessary qualifications to help small businesses with their digital technology needs.
The CDAP chose Customerization as its Digital Advisor because of its experience working with businesses of all sizes across various industries and its proven track record of helping businesses adopt new technologies.
Are you eligible to get this service?
As a small or medium-sized business owner, you may be looking to adopt new customer relationship software, digital inventory management systems, network security software, and other technologies to improve your bottom line.

To be eligible for the Boost Your Business Technology funding, businesses must meet specific criteria:

- Be a for-profit, privately owned business
- Have between 1 – 499 full-time equivalent employees
- Have at least CAD$500,000 of annual revenues in one of the previous three tax years.
Suppose you’re eligible and have completed the digital needs assessment. In that case, you can apply for a grant to cover 90%, up to a maximum of $15,000, of the cost of developing a digital adoption plan. A roster of expert digital advisory service providers is available to help you build your plan. Eligible businesses will be able to search the Digital Advisor Marketplace using a range of criteria, such as the industry sector, area of expertise, language, and geographic location, to find advisory partners like Customerization to help your business boost its technology adoption.
How can you get the grant?
Getting a grant from the Canadian Digital Adoption Program (CDAP) is a 9-step process. Steps 1-6 refer to the digital roadmap development. In contrast, further steps refer to the funding of the implementation of the developed and approved technology roadmap as well as youth placement support.
1. Canadian SMEs access the Stream assessment tool on the CDAP website.

Dr. John Jaquish details seven germs lurking at fitness centers, posing the question, "Should you work out at the gym?"Shared gym equipment, lockers, towels, showers, hot tubs, and pools are breeding grounds for infections.”SAN FRANCISCO, CA, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- As the weather cools down, more people are heading into the gym. Dr. John Jaquish, scientist, and best-selling author, cautions fitness enthusiasts about the tiny pathogens lingering on gym equipment, hot tubs, and surfaces ready to ruin their workout.— Dr. John Jaquish, PhD.
Studies and tests conducted at gyms over the years and long before Covid found hundreds of bacteria, funguses, viruses, etc. "To give some perspective on the germs found in gyms, FitRated did a pre-pandemic study, swabbing 27 pieces of equipment at three different gyms to determine how many bacteria are lingering during your workout. Just one of the tests found that typical free weights have 362 times more germs than a toilet seat. It makes one think about going to a gym to get healthy," said Dr. Jaquish.
Shared gym equipment, lockers, towels, showers, hot tubs, and pools are breeding grounds for infections. Here are some of the germs and infections found per the National Library of Medicine and Johns Hopkins Medicine Health Library:
• Staph Infection (Staphylococcus) is among the most common bacteria hiding out in gyms. Staph bacteria cause problems when one has a scratch or cut on the skin, even a tiny nick from shaving. Noticeable symptoms are red boils that appear swollen or painful. Other symptoms include drainage and a warm-to-the-touch feeling at the injection site.
• Impetigo is a type of skin infection found anywhere on the body that typically results in sores that can ooze, burst, and form a yellow, crusty scab.
• Ringworm (Fungi Dermatophyte) often thrives in warm, dark, moist places like sweaty sneakers or gym locker rooms. Two types found at gyms are athlete's foot and jock itch. Athletes' foot causes white scale and itchy blisters on the feet, while jock itch causes red, painful, and itchy, red-shaped blotches in the groin area. But all types of ringworm can bring red, scaly circles anywhere on the body—including the midsection, arms, and legs.
• Common Colds, Covid, and Flu germs are respiratory infections that spread easily in close quarters. Usually, these germs enter the body through droplets from someone else's coughs and sneezes and can even pass from surface to person.
• Plantar Warts (Human Papillomavirus -HPV) are fleshy overgrowths of skin, typically found on the soles of your feet.
• Herpes (Herpes Simplex virus) can cause either cold sores or genital herpes and enters the body through close personal touch as well as through shared items like gym equipment and towels.
• Hot Tub Rash (Pseudomonas Aeruginosa) can be contacted in the pool or hot tub, producing an itchy, red rash and can also cause a swimmer's ear.
As a result of the prolonged pandemic, Americans' awareness of infections has increased, resulting in an increased awareness of the need to keep fit and healthy. This has translated into a huge demand for residential gym equipment.
Allied Market Research reports that the global at-home fitness equipment market was valued at $5,545 million in 2019 and is projected to reach $11,459 million by 2027, registering a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 7.8% from 2021 to 2027.
Dr. Jaquish is the creator of the X3 workout system, a modern variable resistance portable gym that fits in a drawer at home or a travel bag and can be used anywhere. Additionally, the system ensures a hygienic workout environment.
Dr. Jaquish details his exercise protocols with supporting science in his controversial Wall Street Journal bestselling book Weightlifting is a Waste of Time, So is Cardio.

The fitness model and brand ambassador has joined with MIT45 to help expand the brand into the fitness industry after experiencing the positive resultsI’m excited to share this with the fitness world as I’m always looking for effective ways to improve performance.”SCOTTSDALE, AZ, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Fitness model Chase Douglas is the latest brand ambassador to partner with MIT45. As a fitness enthusiast turned fitness model and influencer, Mr. Douglas has accelerated his name in the fitness arena and built a solid following in a short timeframe. Now, he is joining with MIT45 as their latest brand ambassador after being introduced to MIT45’s lineup and finding positive results for competitive and noncompetitive enthusiasts alike. This adds another fitness professional that has joined the team as MIT45 is finding a strong footing in the fitness industry with their latest hit product.— Chase Douglas, Fitness Model and Brand Ambassador
Chase was born in Utah of mixed Hawaiian and Portuguese/Italian descent and moved to Hawaii at a young age. After college he moved back to Utah to help with his mother who was diagnosed with breast cancer, eventually meeting his fiancé and fitness model and brand ambassador Brylie Schmidt. They now live in Scottsdale, AZ as their path in the fitness industry is taking them to new heights and experiences.
Chase Douglas was raised with a single mother, helping shape his life and develop the tenacity that drives him to continue pushing forward and past obstacles to this day. Being raised in a tough environment also meant becoming a man at an early age resulting in getting serious in the gym at the age of 14. In his 20s he faced multiple difficulties, including developing fibromyalgia, his mother’s fight with breast cancer, and multiple other life experiences providing him with experience and wisdom beyond his age. He credits his path in fitness and the success he’s found with growing wiser with age and balancing strength, aesthetics, and mobility while maintaining a healthy lifestyle while dealing with life’s hurdles.
Mr. Douglas is a certified personal trainer and has built multiple fitness brands and has owned a personal training gym. His focus (personally and for clients) is centered around maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle with a balanced approach to physical fitness and mobility including maintaining a balanced diet that provides energy, optimal health and recovery so one can perform at their peak in all areas of life.
Recently Mr. Douglas joined forces with MIT45 after experiencing their latest product, MIT45 Boost, and the positive effects he found in the gym with this new hit product. In his words, “I’ve found MIT45 Boost to be a great pre-workout supplement giving me energy for my workouts without the usual ‘pre-workout powder crash’ many of the latest competing products seem to have. I’m excited to share this with the fitness world as I’m always looking for effective ways to improve performance.”
For the past 3 years, MIT45 has solidified their reputation as the Gold Standard in the industry. They were recently named a Top 3 Innovative Company in 2022. They were recently recognized in LA Newswire for the excellent workplace culture developed over the previous couple of years and for leading the charge for the regulation of the industry.
When asked about why he chose to work with MIT45, Chase admitted, “I wasn’t familiar with the brand initially, but as I got to know them more and experience some of their top products, I quickly became a convert. I found the products to not only be effective but also the design is killer and has everyone asking about it in the gym.”
This collaboration comes at a time when MIT45 is rapidly expanding into new markets through the launch of new products, acquiring other companies, and much more. The new product MIT45 Boost is already a hit at convenience stores and is currently spreading like wildfire through the fitness industry.

International Coercive Control Conference Seeks to Address Root Causes of Violence Against Women Across the Globe
Experts gather to share knowledge, resources, and strategies to make Coercive Control visible and understoodNEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, September 27, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- For the second year, experts, advocates and activists will gather to address the global crisis facing women in its most invisible and unrecognizable form– coercive control. This year’s theme, Coercive Control: Oppression in Our Public and Private Spheres, seeks to connect the dots between the root cause of coercive control male entitlement to have power over in a gender unequal world, and the countless ways in which this entitlement shows up in our most intimate and personal relationships and spaces, and when it manifests in our public spaces.
The landmark Supreme Court decision that came out earlier this summer, Dobbs v. Jackson, held that women don’t have a constitutional right to an abortion. Right now in Iran, women are tearing off their hijabs and cutting their hair, protesting the murder of Mahsa Amini for wearing her headscarf too loosely, by so-called “morality police”. Security forces are currently killing an unknown number of protestors in the streets across Iran. In China, “Rice bunny” is the homophonic translation of the words “me” and “too” in Mandarin, a euphemism that feminists fighting sexual harrassment in China adopted in order to avoid government detection and censorship.
These examples, while varying in scale, severity, and impact, are manifestations of coercive control and the myriad ways in which it is exercised, whether privately, publicly , overtly or covertly, or through government or religious sanction. In short, these are ways in which male entitlement to have power over, is rooted in, reinforced by and maintained - by gender inequality. ICCC sessions on “Reproductive Rights: Coercive Control of Her Body,” “Violence Against Women As a Hate Crime,” and “Coercive Control in a #metoo Context” are just a few of the conversations at this year’s ICCC about how we might better identify coercive control, confront it, and end it.

About The International Coercive Control Conference
The conference is a first step towards bringing together those working on the front lines advocating for change, modernizing legislation, conducting cutting-edge research, and changing the narrative to make visible the patriarchal nature of abuse and coercive control.
About the Engendered Collective
The Engendered Collective is a community of survivors, advocates, and feminists that engage in knowledge-building, collective care, healing, and advocacy to increase accountability for sex-based abuse, exploitation, and violence.
Today, Western Forces Invading Algerian Sahara, Stopped by Thousands of Mounted Tribespeople: OGarra's Book. "Malak."”FUENGIROLA, MáLAGA, ESPAñA, September 22, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The book, “Malak desert child.” is a stunning evocation of North Africa and its encounter with Western civilisation seen through the relationship between Pete, fleeing to Morocco to escape his mental demons by seeking solace in a pre-modern world, and a family who in escaping from their violent, drunken father to the Algerian Sahara, experience other problems and persecution. The rich valleys and deserts of Morocco and Algeria, are given depth by insight into the immediate history of the area and two upheavals, a rebellion and a revolution. OGarra brings an unusual sympathy and insight into this largely unknown world, the southern 'Other' of Western civilisation, and through his familiarity and insight probes and brings out our common humanity in this tale of struggle and adventure. Albeit in the company of a courageous girl-child, her family and her newly acquired band of personages who seek only to save her from her own valour which finds her time and again plunging headfirst into the abyss.— Paul O'Garra
Malak desert child is the second book in the continuing story of Masuhun (Moon) and his friends, and deals with how they tried to help Malak, a pupil at the local school, and her family, and finished up being pursued by desert armies in the Sahara desert…………………………. Malak is a beautiful five-year-old girl child. She lives in a cave in dire poverty with her drunkard father and her Saharoui mother and sister. Her enemies are all the towns children who victimize her and her sister because of their race and condition. Her only friend is a single mother named Latifa, and Malak´s grandmother Jeeda Hazzah who dies of cancer. But Malak is the champion of her family against a violent father and the children of the Zoco who she fights singlehandedly. This is a magical and often mystical story of a young girl and the people she stumbles upon, as she is rushed away by her uncertain destiny, to the land in which her mother was born, the Sahara Desert. The unravelling of Malak's story is also the unsnarling of the web of intrigue surrounding the North of Africa, and it´s peoples and history, and the reasons for many current dilemmas in this land of witchcraft and mystery.
The tale begins in earnest when a wandering ex-warrior happens on the child and is struck by her magnificent courage and beauty. After a significant episode with her drunken father and his cronies, having interceded on the family´s behalf, he flees with them on a stolen high-speed cruiser heading for Western Sahara and freedom.In the course of their errant journey, they are taken into threatening custody by the Algerian police. The day is saved by the intervention of an old friend of the warrior´s. The friend, a powerful Algerian Warlord, falls under the spell of the feisty child and seems to want to help them although Malak and her mother see in him a very enigmatic and untrustworthy character. Malak´s personality and mystic nature make of her the flux in an adventure which begins as a race to return her to her maternal grandfather´s family. Things start to escalate as her father reports the family as kidnapped and his country uses it as an excuse to intervene militarily.What begins as a flight of mercy will become a race against time as Malak and her friends take on the impossible to try and avoid a military invasion of the whole region by the allied forces of half of the civilised world. In this, they enlist the help of hundreds of thousands of tribespeople. Some tribes known to all and others lost in the wastes of the mysterious desert.
OGarra's first book of short stories, "Mano Po," Is now also available for purchase.

For three years, Judge Brodie refused to issue our request to the Register of Copyrights in order to influence the case”— Monbo
BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- In 2018, the creators of 12 O’Clock Boyz, Taje Monbo and Deafueh Monbo filed a copyright and trademark infringement lawsuit against Lotfy Nathan, Oscilloscope Laboratories, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Overbrook Entertainment, Will Smith, and others seeking damages and a declaratory judgment that the copyright registration to Nathan’s 12 O’Clock Boys film is invalid because Nathan allegedly obtained the copyright registration by fraud.
The Monbos contend that “Nathan falsified his copyright application and fraudulently claimed that his 12 O’Clock Boys is an original work by not disclosing to the Copyright Office that his film included pre-existing footages and excerpts from the Monbos' copyrighted 12 O’Clock Boyz 2001 and 2003 films.”
According to court documents, Nathan also applied for the copyright registration to his 2013 documentary naming his company, Red Gap, as the author of his film. However, Red Gap did not exist at the time Nathan filmed his 2013 documentary.
In 2019, the Monbos filed a motion requesting that the Court seek the advise of the Copyright Office on whether the Copyright Office would have rejected Nathan’s copyright application if the Copyright Office knew that Nathan’s film included pre-existing footages and excerpts from the Monbos' copyrighted 12 O’Clock Boyz 2001 and 2003 films.
“Without a legitimate copyright, it is clear that Nathan infringed on our copyrights. This is why we asked the Judge to issue the request to the Register of Copyrights,” said Deafueh Monbo.
In the past, federal judges have issued a request to the Register of Copyrights regarding the validity of a copyright, most notably in the landmark case Velazquez-Gonzalez v. Pina.
“For three years, Judge Brodie refused to issue our request to the Register of Copyrights in order to influence the case,” said Monbo.
Earlier this month, the Monbos filed a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus against Judge Margo K. Brodie in the higher court. The Petition for a Writ of Mandamus is seeking an order from the higher court to compel Judge Brodie to issue the mandatory request to the Register of Copyrights concerning Nathan’s copyright.
A motion to recuse Judge Brodie from the case also appears on the court docket. No ruling has been made as of yet.
The case is Monbo et al. v. Nathan et al., U.S. District Court, Eastern District of New York, Case No. 1:18-CV-05930. The Petition is In Re: Deafueh Monbo, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, Petition No: 22-1957.

A special alphabet book teaches kids fun facts and the importance of spending time outdoors with a philanthropic twist
In an age where screens and technology are ever-present, this refreshing book provides fun facts and information about the benefits of being outdoors in nature.TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, September 20, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- It’s a fact that there’s no getting away from the integration of technology in our daily lives for even those as young as preschool-age. Although it can be a valuable component of learning, it shouldn’t be a replacement for the critical importance of spending time outdoors in nature, especially for children. In her new rhyming picture book, Get Outside, author Jessica Gold shares definitions, facts, and anecdotes of the many ways to spend time outdoors and the value it brings to our lives.
As a recent new mother who decided to take her young daughter on a five-week exploration of oceans, mountains, and the redwood forest, Gold’s intention in writing her book is to introduce children to the outdoors and encourage parents to get their children outside. Gold shares, “A new kind of love for my child forced me to look at the world differently. While I was always upset by the world’s obsession with screens and technology, I now grew angry thinking about how our world’s trajectory could and would play a role in my daughter's life. I wanted to do something to try and help and remind the world of what is really important and try to protect our future generations.”
With vibrant illustrations and a playful rhyming text, each page of the book conveys something of importance and interest about the world outside, all stemming from a letter of the alphabet. Whether it’s through describing nature’s elements like evergreens and insects, or ways to enjoy the outdoors such as canoe tripping or hiking, or gear needed to accomplish such activities like tents, knapsacks, or lifejackets, Gold’s text both entertains and educates young readers and their families.
With her book, Gold's aim is to share the benefits of nature and how to be good stewards of it with children everywhere. Knowing that many families face financial and logistical barriers which prohibit children from such experiences, Gold donates proceeds from the sales of her book to Project Canoe, a registered charity that offers educational outdoor programming to Ontario youth with a focus on those who might otherwise miss out on the experience of outdoor adventure as a result of systemic or mental health barriers. Get Outside is available now wherever books are sold
