Vincentric Announces 2018 Canadian Hybrid Analysis

Some Hybrids Reduce Overall Costs – Most Do Not.

BINGHAM FARMS, MI, USA, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vincentric, LLC announced the 2018 Canadian Hybrid Analysis results today with 16 of the 47 hybrid vehicles evaluated (34%) having a lower total cost of ownership compared to their closest all-gasoline powered counterpart.

The average price premium for a hybrid vehicle was $7,121 more than its all-gasoline powered counterpart. The study showed that although hybrids had an average fuel savings of $3,051 and average maintenance cost savings of $576, the average total cost of ownership for hybrids was still almost $3500 more than the all-gasoline powered equivalents over five years.

Although, on average, hybrids don’t save money, the in-depth analysis did find that 16 of the hybrids are expected to save buyers money, with all 16 hybrids coming from the 37 passenger cars analyzed. The hybrid identified with the most savings was the Ford Fusion Hybrid Platinum, which is forecasted to save buyers $6,640 over five years. The next two models with cost-effective hybrids were the Lincoln MKZ Hybrid Select and the Lexus ES 300h, with the five-year savings for these two vehicles expected to be $3,049 and $2,241 respectively. The results also showed that none of the ten SUV/Crossovers analyzed are expected to save buyers money when total cost of ownership is analyzed.

“The Vincentric study shows that although hybrids have lower fuel and maintenance costs, they aren’t always cost effective in the long run,” said Vincentric President, David Wurster. “However, Canadian buyers who want to own a cost-effective hybrid car can definitely find them, especially if they identify one in which the hybrid price premium is low.”

To determine the 2018 Canadian Hybrid Analysis, Vincentric conducted a statistical analysis of hybrid vehicles to provide consumers and the automotive industry with insightful information on the cost of owning and operating a hybrid. Fuel prices used in the analysis were based on a weighted average over the previous five months. The report also assumes the vehicle is owned for five years and 15,000 kilometers are driven annually. Vincentric measured total cost of ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs.

Further information regarding the 2018 Vincentric Canadian Hybrid Analysis results for all vehicles analyzed can be requested from marketing@vincentric.com or visit the Vincentric.com Hybrid Analysis Page to view the 16 cost-effective passenger cars.

In NY most sexual predators that rape the disabled escape justice

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives

Top Cuomo administration officials directly involved in criminal cover-ups of sexual assaults

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – Former NYS employee & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation is uncovering the rampant sexual abuse within Cuomo’s mental health care system and the wide-scale cover-ups similar to the Catholic Church. Thousands of sexual assaults and rapes are reported to Governor Andrew Cuomo’s abuse hotline and most are never reported to local police or ever criminally investigated. Almost all sex crimes committed against our most vulnerable are never criminally investigated, never reported to county elected district attorneys and will never see a court room.

To give you an idea of how rampant the sexual abuse and cover-ups are it is important to document some key facts. Governor Andrew Cuomo is without question operating his mental agencies almost identical to the Catholic Church, keeping almost everything internal. Less than 1% of sex crimes reported to the fraudulent Justice Center abuse hotline are ever prosecuted. To wrap your mind around the scope of the astronomical and absolute rampant sexual abuse occurring multiply 1,300 sexual assaults times 33 to get the approximate numbers within the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) system annually. OPWDD is only one of six mental health agencies in New York State that internally report sex crimes. State records obtained through Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) by Michael Carey reveal an average of 1,300 reported sexual abuse cases within OPWDD alone and according to a well known study called Prevalence of Violence only 3% of these sexual assaults are ever reported.

https://www.mass.gov/service-details/prevalence-of-violence

Governor Andrew Cuomo set up an internal abuse hotline for people with disabilities, having the audacity to name it the Justice Center for the Protection of People with Special Needs (Justice Center) which is doing almost the direct opposite from its name. This is fraudulent whitewash state agency that was set up to cover-up. Governor Andrew Cuomo by law requires mandated reporters and witnesses of sex crimes to report to his abuse hotline, there is no law requiring these sex crimes to be immediately reported to 911 so local police can respond. This is purposeful and this is how the Cuomo administration continues to cover-up almost all reported sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ViRj7sz6NOU&t=3s

New York State is discriminating against people with disabilities by denying them equal access to 911 first responder medical and police services when they are victims of sex crimes. New York State is denying people with disabilities living outside their family homes their constitutional rights to ‘equal protect of laws.’ One million New Yorkers with disabilities which are the governor’s numbers are being treated unequally and as far lower class citizens and residents similar to the discrimination that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. fought against.

On top of these wide-scale discrimination and civil rights atrocities, the Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing to light the illegal and extremely dangerous placements of convicted sex offenders into group homes. Dozens of sexual predators, level 2 and level 3 sex offenders have been located living in facilities and group homes throughout New York State from a partial list of facilities and minimum research. Statistically, the numbers appear to be in the hundreds.

Throughout New York State and our country, all sexual predators must be immediately removed from all facilities and group homes that allow them easy access to prey on and sexual assault or rape people with disabilities. This is outrageous and unconscionable that anyone would conceive of such a practice, more less implement it. These practices are obviously a direct danger to all residents, but also a direct danger to staff and the general community. Group homes are scattered throughout our communities and are not locked down facilities, sexual predators can easily leave practically whenever they like. It is important to note that sexual predators and pedophiles sexually assault extremely large numbers of victims according to a State psychologist before they are ever caught.

https://www.whec.com/news/advocate-fights-to-remove-sex-offenders-from-group-homes-for-the-disabled/5086313/

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of New York State’s mental health care system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/new-york-pay-3m-family-boy-molested-group-home-article-1.2977392

Cato Introduces Self-Healing SD-WAN For Global Enterprises

Cato Cloud automatically recovers from network failures across the SD-WAN. Security infrastructure is updated in real-time for easy, non-stop operation.

As enterprises adopt SD-WAN, HA configurations are essential to meeting uptime objectives. Self-Healing SD-WAN makes HA easy and available to IT teams of all sizes.”

— Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO of Cato Networks

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, October 17, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cato Networks, provider of Cato Cloud, the world's first secure, global SD-WAN as a service, announced today the expansion of its Self-Healing SD-WAN capabilities to global enterprises. With Cato’s new datacenter appliance and enhanced Self-Healing SD-WAN, Cato Cloud repairs outages occurring across the network of data centers, cloud resources, and branch offices. Cato’s Self-Healing SD-WAN converges networking and security infrastructure ensuring automatic alignment as network topology changes. This unique capability is essential for non-stop network operation for today’s global digital business.

“As enterprises adopt SD-WAN, high availability (HA) configurations are essential to meeting the uptime levels of MPLS and legacy security appliances. But designing for high availability is complicated because today’s enterprise infrastructure is more diverse and interconnected than ever. Cato Self-Healing SD-WAN architecture eliminates the extensive network design efforts and reduced the dependency on the scarce skills needed when planning an HA deployment," says Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO of Cato Networks.

Self-Healing SD-WAN Makes Delivering End-to-End High Availability Easy
Delivering network HA has been complicated by the transition to SD-WAN. Suddenly IT, not the carrier, must design for HA throughout the global network, an expensive and complicated process for many companies.

Cato’s Self-Healing SD-WAN makes end-to-end HA available to all companies. No longer must network architects anticipate how obscure failure scenarios in the network will impact the security, and by extension, application infrastructure. Cato Cloud heals itself, providing applications a consistent platform for continuous operation. Edge device failure, network transport failure, failover to a disaster recovery site, moving apps between datacenters or cloud providers and more — Cato Self-Healing SD-WAN solves network problems without requiring IT intervention.

Cato Cloud: Converged Healing For The Entire SD-WAN
To deliver end-to-end HA, Cato replaces the myriad of edge appliances, VNFs, and standalone services normally complicating HA design with a global, distributed cloud-scale packet engine, the Cato Cloud, that routes, optimizes, and secures an enterprise’s WAN and Internet traffic. Cato is expanding the Cato Cloud in two important ways — a new datacenter appliance and enhanced security rules that automatically adapt to network changes:

New Datacenter Appliance
Cato’s newest appliance, the X1700 Socket, enables large datacenters to benefit from Cato SD-WAN. The rackable device comes with redundant power supplies and hot-swappable hard drives, protecting datacenters against the most common component failures. Like the X1500, Cato’s branch SD-WAN device, the X1700 comes with HA for no additional recurring charge.

Follow-the-Network Security Rules
Cato is also announcing today an enhancement that allows Cato’s security rules to change dynamically with the network. Normally, as workloads move between locations or applications failover to disaster recovery sites, IT must manually update policies in firewalls and other security or networking appliances. Cato’s self-healing algorithms use enhanced BGP capabilities to detect new IP ranges and automatically update all relevant policies for zero-touch service continuity.

To learn more about Cato’s Self-Healing SD-WAN and how Cato improves uptime across tiers of the global networks, click here.

About Cato Networks
Cato Networks provides organizations with a cloud-based and secure global SD-WAN. Cato delivers an integrated networking and security platform that securely connects all enterprise locations, people, and data. Cato Cloud cuts MPLS costs, improves performance between global locations and to cloud applications, eliminates branch appliances, provides secure Internet access everywhere, and seamlessly integrates mobile users and cloud datacenters into the WAN.
