A big Shout Out to WasteExpo for winning a TSE Gold 100 Award this year! The “Do-Gooder” honor goes to the best 2015 event held by a trade show organizer for philanthropy or social causes. This was the fifth year that WasteExpo hosted and helped market EREF’s annual silent auction. It raised more than two million dollars and is the chief fundraiser for the Environmental Research & Education Foundation non-profit. Talk about best practices!

Ever hear “trust but verify”? We prefer “verify and use your cellphone.” So much easier and quicker! The new EquipmentWatch Verification mobile app allows for immediate serial number and VIN verification for heavy equipment and on-road trucks in the auction and resale markets. The power of the best industry database in your pocket, at last.

The new head of the Dutch police takes cybersecurity seriously, and he knows that’s an important message for his HostingCon Europe keynote. Erik Akerboom wants the government to do more to fight against cybercrime, to encourage more business investment in the Netherlands as a main data port. He’ll speak on October 12 at the event, which is presented by hosting leader ResellersClub.

It’s like the Oscars for Car UX! WardsAuto has announced its first-ever 10 Best User Experiences awards. The winners are a global group with sticker prices from under $28K to more than $128K. Wards judged competitors on how easy it is overall to interact with a car, with a focus on system features like Drowsy Driver Alert in the Ford Escape or High-intensity Massage in the Mercedes E-Class. Check out this slideshow! (Warning: new car urges may be closer than you want.)
Winner profiles will appear on WardsAuto.com beginning Sept. 21, and honored automakers will receive their trophies on Oct. 4 at the WardsAuto User Experience Conference at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI.

Data Center World facilities process a lot of numbers but here’s one with a special impact. DCW raised $15,000 this week for the Red Cross by donating $20 for each registration at its conference in New Orleans. And event organizers also decided to donate all leftover food items to Second Harvest Food Bank. The recent terrible flooding in Louisiana happened not that far away and everyone wanted to help in some way. Big Data Centers. Big Hearts.

As expected, lots of very interesting information came out of this year’s Waste360 Recycling Summit! A special green shout out to the 2016 winners of the NWRA Recycling Awards. For example, Zanker Recycling of San Jose, California was honored for achieving an 86-percent recycling rate for demolition materials. Check out all the winners!
Four awards and three honorable mentions were given to companies that have made contributions to American recycling.

It’s time to get smart about Smart Building cybersecurity. At IoT Emerge, event planners have just added a session featuring ground-breaking new research. The findings from Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) analyze risk factors and present strategies for limiting cyber-attack incidents. Now that’s what we call Intelligence for buildings!

Props to our DES Group from the Software & Information Industry Association! SIIA has great DIY tips for creating a bracket-and-quiz program— based on DES’s award-winning 2015 STEM Starter Tournament. The game killed in increasing engagement for not-so-many bucks and was (dare we say?) fun as well. https://goo.gl/h6m4hG
