Home of the San Diego Zoo, beautiful west coast beaches, and more recently, a run of the world-famous “Hamilton” musical, San Diego is a hotspot for tourism and family fun. It’s situated far from LA traffic, but just close enough to attractions such as Ocean Beach and La Jolla, along with an additional 70 miles of coastline.

Located toward the southern border of California and just north of Mexico, this city is bursting with Spanish influence and culture. It’s home to a replica of San Salvador, the ship led by Captain Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo who was the first European to disembark on the west coast. San Diego is also known for its Cali-Baja cuisine, as well as more traditional Mexican meals. It’s also a city celebrated for its craft brewing abilities, often referred to as America’s craft beer capital.

There’s little missing in this city by the sea. It has a thriving arts scene, theme parks such as Legoland and Seaworld, a celebrated culinary variety, and a major league baseball team, to boot. Beyond that, San Diego has a bustling and innovative tech atmosphere that is uniquely its own.

San Diego landed on Forbes’ list as one of the best cities to start a business in, due to a “heavy concentration in projected high growth industries.” Members of the tech scene help put together the city’s own week-long celebration and recognition of startups, the San Diego Startup Week.

Big-name businesses such as BuildFire and Seismic take residence in this town south of the valley, bringing notoriety with them and encouraging a spirit of entrepreneurship. Although oft-compared to the northern Silicon Valley, it shouldn’t be. San Diego is a scene of its own making, perfectly ripe for ideation, dripping in creativity.

Note: Only software vendors on G2 Crowd with headquarters currently in the San Diego area are included in graph.

We have compiled data on the state of the San Diego B2B tech scene that includes all of the top-rated products on G2 Crowd which have parent companies headquartered in San Diego. Our list is ranked by user satisfaction of a company’s top-rated product. To qualify, a product was required to have at least 10 verified user reviews.

For each qualifying product, we created a company profile to recognize what that company is and does, as well as give a little insight into its history. The data relies on G2 Crowd’s 300,000-plus B2B software and services reviews, or from public data sources such as LinkedIn or each vendor’s website.

Practice management systems are tricky beasts. They require quite a bit of initial investment to set up and remain deployed for five to seven years before a medical or health care practice can begin to think about upgrading or even switching to another system. Users’ experiences with practice management software, then, are based off of both their experience with initial training and years of wrangling with the system and its support team.

Any medical or health care practice benefits from a practice management system, as it can automate daily tasks, sync patient data and information across multiple servers or practices, provide digitally logged charts and notes and create portals for patients to access. The aforementioned are just the standard features.

Simple-to-use practice management systems, then, are greatly desired. Doctors, nurses, therapists and other medical professionals already have heavy plates and prefer systems that are easy to set up, access, train on and, ultimately, use.

These metrics influence which practice management products G2 Crowd determines to be the simplest: Ease of Use, Ease of Administration and Ease of Setup. The following tools aren’t necessarily the overall best or highest ranked, but they have been given the green light from real users on the data points that matter the most, in terms of usability.

Based on review data as of Dec. 4, 2017, here are the five simplest practice management tools according to real G2 Crowd reviews.


Simple practice management systems

Kareo

Kareo Practice Mangement Systems

Ease of Use: 91 percent
Ease of Admin: 94 percent
Ease of Setup: 92 percent

Kareo is a cloud-based practice management platform that is built for independent practices. While Kareo’s EHR promises to streamline everything from the front office to back-end billing, many users specifically praise its billing functionality.

For example, Pauline B. wrote in their Kareo review, “Billers will love this application. Ease of use — when creating claims and posting payments — and tracking claims are great. The ability to click on an account within a report makes follow-up a breeze.”

In addition to receiving the above scores for ease of use, admin and setup, users also reported a 92 percent rating for average user adoption and an 88 percent likely to recommend rating. These two metrics are significant. After all, a high user adoption rate is a testament to either a not-so-steep learning curve or the existence of more than adequate training and onboarding practices that help users overcome that curve.


WebPT

WebPT Practice Management Systems

Ease of Use: 90 percent
Ease of Admin: 90 percent
Ease of Setup: 82 percent

WebPT is a cloud-based practice management platform that is built specifically for the physical therapy industry. Some of the core aspects of WebPT include: management of patient documents, compliant billing practices, and a multi-user appointment scheduler.

Janet G wrote in their WebPT review, “The ease of use in WebPT is nice [because] the work flows from one task to the next so naturally. If you leave something out, you are usually prompted to go back and fill it in, making almost impossible to mess anything up.”

In addition to receiving the above scores for ease of use, admin and setup, users also reported a 100 percent rating for average user adoption and a 94 percent likely to recommend rating. Because WebPT’s main goal is to ease the transition of a physical therapy practice from a paper to digital environment, that the product received the absolutely highest average user adoption bodes well for future users of the tool.


Epic

Epic Practice Management Systems

Ease of Use: 91 percent
Ease of Admin: 94 percent
Ease of Setup: 92 percent

Epic is an electronic health records (EHR) solution but because the platform is so comprehensive, it also qualifies for the practice management category. According to G2 Crowd users, Epic is very much a health care information system, inasmuch as the solution tries to synchronize data and workflow across an entire hospital’s system.

A user of Epic wrote, “I have used other health care information systems in the past and Epic is by far my favorite to use. It does require some training, given there are some aspects that you wouldn’t know unless someone trained you on it. But once training is done it is very easy to use.”

In addition to receiving the above scores for ease of use, admin and setup, users also reported a 86 percent rating for average user adoption and a 84 percent likely to recommend rating. Epic has about the same number of detractors as supporters (users’ frustrations stem from the platform being a bulky legacy product that’s slow to change and difficult to master), so it’s heartening that despite those frustrations, users still admit to relatively high average user adoption and likely to recommend ratings.


eClinicalWorks

eClinicalWorks Practice Management Systems

Ease of Use: 76 percent
Ease of Admin: 78 percent
Ease of Setup: 76 percent

eClinicalWorks’ practice management platform can be scaled to any-sized medical or health care practice. eClinicalWorks features include a comprehensive EHR, population health analytics, revenue cycle management, and patient engagement channels.

A user of eClinicalWorks wrote they most enjoy, “The ease of training all employees on areas of the system, from creating medical documentation and making change [to] using the electronic prescription area to … scanning hard copy medical documents into category sections.”

In addition to receiving the above scores for ease of use, admin and setup, users also reported a 100 percent rating for average user adoption and a 74 percent likely to recommend rating. The former percentage is what determined eClinicalWorks’ inclusion and not Cerner’s. While both eClinicalWorks and Cerner received 76 percent for “Ease of Use,” the former received a higher average user adoption score: 100 percent, versus Cerner’s 89 percent.


Advanced Billing

Centricity Practice Management Systems

Ease of Use: 91 percent
Ease of Admin: 94 percent
Ease of Setup: 92 percent

GE Healthcare’s Centricity Practice Solution works to integrate its EHR solution with its practice management solution, which can either be used as independent modules or as a singular unit. Centricity helps practices increase efficiency by tailoring its platform to the user’s existing workflow and preferences.

Stacy A. wrote in their Centricity review that they best like, “The flexibility of the system to fit all types of offices and specialties. No matter if you need to bill physician charges, dental or anesthesia, the system assists staff to be successful. The system has the ability to modify to users’ workflow and not the other way around.”

In addition to receiving the above scores for ease of use, admin and setup, users also reported a 94 percent rating for average user adoption and a 73 percent likely to recommend rating. While McKesson Practice Plus received a higher Ease of Use score (79 percent) than Centricity (76 percent), McKesson didn’t collect enough data for Ease of Admin or Ease of Setup. Hence, Centricity’s inclusion in this list and not McKesson’s.

American citizen captured in Syria says he wants ACLU lawyer

WASHINGTON/January 05, 2018(AP)(STL.News)— An American citizen picked up on the Syrian battlefield and held by the U.S. military for nearly four months without a lawyer has told the American Civil Liberties Union that he wants to challenge his detention.

ACLU attorney Jonathan Hafetz said Friday that the civil rights group went to the Pentagon on Wednesday and spoke via video conference with the detainee, who is accused of fighting with the Islamic State.

The Defense Department provided access after a judge ruled in December that the military must provide legal counsel to the man. He surrendered to U.S.-backed fighters in Syria around Sept. 12 and is being held in Iraq as an unlawful enemy combatant.

The ACLU asked a federal judge on Friday to prohibit the government from transferring the citizen.

With the 2017-18 NCAAB season moving into the new year and conference action now getting underway across the country, now is the perfect time to highlight some legitimate contenders – and some pretenders according to the latest College Basketball Championship odds.

There’s electrifying Oklahoma point guard Trae Young who has been so special this season that he gets his own special section of just why Oklahoma now has the look of an NCAA Tournament darling! Okay, let’s get down to business.

Updated College Basketball Championship Odds – January 5th Edition

Top Contenders

No. 2 Duke (13-1)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 5/1

Duke has a trio of sure-fire NBA players in possible No. 1 overall pick Marvin Bagley III, shooting guard Grayson Allen and point guard Trevon Duval, even if they do have some blemishes and aren’t anywhere near where Coach K wants them to be when March Madness time arrives. Love ‘em or loathe ‘em, Duke will contend for this year’s title.

No. 1 Michigan State (14-1)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 5-1

Michigan State is absolutely loaded with talent starting with forwards Miles Bridges and Nick Ward and raw, 6-11 center Jaren Jackson Jr. The Spartans’ length, athleticism and the coaching of the widely respected Tom Izzo look quite formidable right now!

No. 3 Villanova (13-1)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 10/1

Villanova still has the look of a very legitimate national championship title contender – even if they struggle like hell to beat the Butler Bulldogs every time they face their Big East rivals. The ‘Cats have it all from a great floor leader to sweet wing shooters and active big men, making them one of the very best title contenders in all the land!

No. 14 Arizona (12-3)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 12/1

Arizona and their two future NBA performers, Deandre Ayton and Allonzo Trier, are back to looking very legitimate, having won eight straight games at the time of this writing including wins over Texas A&M and No. 4 Arizona this past weekend.

No. 17 Kentucky (12-2)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 14/1

Kentucky has won three straight and pounded disgraced Louisville 90-61 to kick off their modest winning streak while getting past LSU team in a hard-fought battle the last time out. Make no mistake about it, the Wildcats and their collection of blue-chip recruits look like they’re going to be very dangerous once March rolls around.

No. 10 Kansas (11-3)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 14/1

Kansas has a bunch of issues they need to clear up, particularly in the frontcourt. The Jayhawks got man-handled by Texas Tech in their humbling 85-73 home loss on Tuesday and look more like a pretender than a contender right now.

No. 12 North Carolina (12-2)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 20/1

North Carolina lost to ACC rival Florida State 81-80 on Wednesday night and guess who predicted that upset in the MyBookie.ag news section? Yeah, that’s right…yours truly! Right now, I’m thinking Carolina is more pretender than contender, but hey, it’s still early and Roy Williams is a helluva’ coach.

No. 9 Wichita State (11-2)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 20/1

has won three straight since getting upended by Trae Young and the Oklahoma Sooners a couple of weeks ago. Still, the Shockers shoot it so well, I’ve got the feeling they’re going to contend for something big once March rolls around.

Pretenders

No. 11 Texas A&M (11-3)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 20/1

Texas A&M got smacked around by Alabama and Florida in their last two games and until I see otherwise, I’m going to say the Aggies are more pretender than contender.

Unranked Florida (10-4)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 25/1

Florida beat the hell out of No. 11 Texas A&M to win their fourth straight game but their 65-59 loss to tiny Loyola-Chicago back on Dec. 6 tells me the Gators are nothing more than wannabes.

No. 19 Gonzaga (12-3)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 25/1

Gonzaga has won two straight, but the Bulldogs clearly aren’t as good as they were a year ago, as demonstrated by their 72-70 loss at San Diego State on San Diego State back on Dec. 21. right now, Gonzaga is good but certainly not great!

No. 5 Xavier (15-1)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 25/1

Xavier is looking like a very legitimate championship contender with stupendous 25/1 odds and a superstar floor leader in Trevon Bluiett that will be playing at the next level come next season.

No. 4 Arizona State (12-2)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 25/1

Arizona State heads into the weekend having suffered consecutive losses to Arizona and Colorado but wins over Kansas and Xavier lead me to believe the Sun Devils will be just fine.

The College Basketball Championship Odds for Arizona State are not looking good.

No. 8 Virginia (13-1)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 33/1

Virginia is so good defensively under head coach Tony Bennett, that they remind me of those old John Thompson Georgetown teams from back in the day. When you limit the opposition to just 52.7 points a game, You’re going to beat a lot of people…like, a whole lot.

No. 19 Cincinnati (13-2)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 33/1

Cincinnati is looking good right now, but I worry about their lack of quality big men and the fact that they don’t have a true scoring threat. I’m thinking the Cats will be pretender than contender when they face a powerhouse opponent with length and athleticism.

No. 13 Purdue (14-2)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 33/1

Purdue looks legit right now with wins over Arizona, Butler, and Maryland highlighting their record right now. Get back to me on the Boilermakers when they lay Michigan State on Feb. 10.

No. 6 West Virginia (13-1)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 40/1

West Virginia looks like a typical Bob Huggins team. The can score and defend and have a legitimate star in Jevon Carter. Right now, I expect them to contend well into March Madness.

No. 15 Miami, Fl. (12-2)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 40/1

Miami is nothing more than a pretender right now despite their fine, 12-2 mark right now – or maybe you didn’t see their 10-point loss to Georgia Tech on Wednesday night.

No. 7 Oklahoma (12-1)

  • College Basketball Championship Odds: 25/1

Oklahoma is offering more value than any team in the country right now if you ask me, if only because they’ve found out they have a Steph Curry clone in suddenly electrifying point guard Trae Young, my unequivocal leader for the National Player of the Year award right now.

Young is averaging a phenomenal 29.4 points and 10.6 assists per game to lead the nation in both categories. Young shoots it like Curry but is a better passer that the Golden State Warriors superstar. More importantly, he’s been as deadly on the road as at home.

Young went off for 43 and 7 at Oregon before torching USC for 29 and 9 and following that up with 29 and 10 at Wichita State. Young’s most recent road outing was absolutely phenomenal as he put up 38 and 14 at No. 10 TCU on Dec. 30. Right now, Young makes Oklahoma completely dangerous against any team and one that again, is offering phenomenal value as a 25/1 pick.

Rest of the Field

  • Louisville: 50/1
  • Notre Dame: 50/1
  • Seton Hall: 50/1
  • USC: 50/1
  • Missouri: 50/1

If you’re fired up about the start of the 2018 playoffs and you’re wondering whether or not anyone can dethrone Tom Brady and the New England Patriots as conference champions, then you’ve come to the right place! Thanks to the expert NFL betting analysis and predictions that you’re about to get, based on the AFC Championship odds, you’re going to have a great idea of just which team, if any, can take down Brady and the perennially powerful Pats to represent the AFC in Super Bowl 52.

NFL Betting Predictions to Win the 2018 AFC Championship

No. 6 Buffalo Bills vs. No. 3 Jacksonville Jaguars

  • When: Sunday, January 7, 2018, 1:05 PM ET
  • Where: EverBank Field, Jacksonville, FL
  • TV: CBS
  • Radio: 550 AM (Buffalo) / 92.1 FM (Jacksonville)
  • Streaming Option: NFL Live
  • NFL Betting Spread: Jacksonville Jaguars -9 (Over/Under at 39.5 points)

The Bills (9-7 SU, 9-6-1 ATS) will take on the Jaguars (10-6 SU, 9-7 ATS) in their AFC wild-card opener on Sunday and I fully expect Jacksonville to win and advance seeing as how they are the superior team on both sides of the ball.

While I’m not real fond of Jags quarterback Blake Bortles who has been, for an absolute disappointment after being picked third overall in the 2014 NFL Draft and I believe the Bills have the big edge with veteran Tyrod Taylor being a much better leader and one with a dual-threat skill-set, Jacksonville really is the better team on both side of the ball as they finished fifth in scoring and second in points allowed.

The Bills need more playmakers besides Taylor and Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy and I just can’t get past the fact that head coach in Sean McDermott actually believed fifth-round rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman was actually better than veteran starter Tyrod Taylor – until Peterman threw five picks in one half against the Chargers.

Jacksonville will pound Buffalo’s defense with their rushing attack led by Leonard Fournette while mostly shutting down Taylor and McCoy to get the win.

No. 5 Tennessee Titans vs. No. 4 Kansas City Chiefs

  • When: Saturday, January 6 at 4:35 PM EST
  • Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City
  • TV: ESPN
  • Radio: 92.9 FM (Tennessee) / 1350 AM (Kansas City)
  • Live Stream: Watch ESPN
  • NFL Betting Odds: Kansas City Chiefs -8 (Over/Under at 44.5)

All you really need to know about this Saturday AFC wild-card clash is that Tennessee (9-7 SU, 8-7-1 ATS) lost three of their final four games before beating an uninterested Jacksonville team in their finale to get in while Kansas City (10-6 SU, 10-6 ATS) hits the playoffs on a nice roll, having won four straight.

Oh, and then there’s the fact that the Titans actually gave up more points per game (22.2 ppg, 17th) than they averaged during the regular season (20.9 ppg, 19th), combined with the fact that Kansas City has a handful of dangerous weapons on offense at veteran quarterback Alex Smith’s disposal and a handful of outstanding defensive players starting with Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Peters.

After the Jags and Chiefs win, Jacksonville will head to Pittsburgh to take on the second-seeded Steelers (13-3 SU, 7-9 ATS) in what should be an entertaining affair seeing as how the Jags absolutely overpowered the Steelers in their stunning 30-9 Week 5 blowout of the Steelers in Pittsburgh no less.

Kansas City is at the top of our NFL Betting Predictions to win the AFC.

For the rematch, however, I’ve got to believe that Pittsburgh is going to hold it down at home, likely by shutting down Jacksonville’s rushing attack and forcing Blake Bortles to beat them through the air, which, he just won’t be able to do. I’m thinking the Steelers win a hard-fought battle, be a score somewhere in the neighborhood of 27-17 or 27-20.

Rest of the Way

With Kansas City heading to New England to take on the top-seeded Patriots (13-3 SU, 11-5 ATS) in the other divisional round matchup, I’m holding out some hope – or maybe it’s just a lot of freaking wishful thinking – that the Chiefs can pull off the big road upset.

Kansas City opened the 2017 regular season with a 42-27 drubbing of the Patriots and have actually won two of the last three meetings against New England dating back to 2014, including a 41-14 smackdown of Tom Brady and company back on September 29 of 2014.

Okay, the hell with it. I picked Kansas City to beat New England in their opener and I’m going to pick them to end New England’s season in the divisional round, no matter what the NFL Betting Odds might say, especially since there are reports coming out of New England that there’s some kind of beef between Brady and Belichick this season.

Alright now, with the Chiefs now heading to Pittsburgh to play the Steelers in the AFC title tilt, I’m going for broke with another upset pick for the Chiefs to take out the Steelers.

Yes, I know Kansas City has lost to Pittsburgh three straight times and six of the last seven times overall, but hey, the last two times they’ve met, the Steelers won 19-13 in Week 6 and 18-16 in last year’s divisional round, so it’s not like the Steelers have dominated Kansas City.

In the end, the Chiefs started off the season looking like they could win Super Bowl 52 and they closed out the season on a positive note by winning four straight. They’ve clearly got some ‘good mojo’ going right now and I believe it could carry them all the way to Super Bowl 52.

Fueled by IFC’s Portlandia, Portland has become known as the hipster mecca of the United States. But the people of Portland aren’t all about petitioning bicycles’ rights, questioning the organic nature of their chicken or searching for the perfect brunch spot. If you take a peek behind the hipster veil of Portland, you will find a bright and burgeoning tech scene.

Portland has burst onto the tech scene, with its tech talent pool growing 28 percent between 2010 and 2013, according to Entrepreneur. For a comparison, Silicon Valley’s talent pool grew 20.8 percent in this time. Portland is not rivalring Silicon Valley in talent pools, but nicknames as well — it has become known as “Silicon Forest.”

Those looking to break into the tech scene are looking to choosing Portland over the Silicon Valley because of the low cost of living. Not only is housing cheaper in the city of Portland, but Portland is also surrounded by affordable suburbs that are just a quick drive away from the city. That short commute means young workers can enjoy a healthy work-life balance.

Not only is Portland home to a number of thriving startups, but some big names have made a second home in the Silicon Forest as well. eBay, Airbnb and Google have all opened offices in Portland. These businesses are clearly seeing the potential in Portland.

Some in Portland are taking a different approach to startups than people elsewhere are. Mara Zepeda, co-founder of the Portland-based Switchboard, is looking to disrupt the ‘unicorn’ startups (businesses valued over $1 billion). She is looking to foster the ‘zebra’ in Portland, which is “a saner start-up, built for attainable profit, informed by social, political, and environmental responsibility,” according to an interview in Portland Monthly. Staying true to Portland’s hipster culture, Zepeda hopes that the zebra will give people an alternative to the norm.

Note: Only software vendors on G2 Crowd with headquarters currently in the Portland area are included in graph.

As the Portland tech scene continues to grow, we have pulled together a list of all of the top-rated products on G2 Crowd which have parent companies headquartered in Portland. Our list is ranked by user satisfaction of a company’s top-rated product. To qualify, a product was required to have at least 10 verified real-user reviews.

For each qualifying product, we created a company profile to recognize what that company is and does, as well as give a little insight into its history. The data relies on G2 Crowd’s 300,000-plus B2B software and services reviews, or from publicly-made available data sources such as LinkedIn, Crunchbase or each vendor’s website. The report features 20 B2B Portland software companies which are represented with more than 1,403 verified user reviews across categories from Online Appointment Scheduling to Marketing Automation to Online Course Providers. Let’s dive into Portland’s tech scene.

The post The State of B2B Tech in Portland in 2018 appeared first on G2 Crowd.

Arizona is big. Not Texas big, obviously; more like sixth-biggest state big. But Arizona can feel pretty empty, almost deserted you might say; only about 7 million people live there. And though the vast majority of the state may be desert, Arizona is home to oases full of tech innovation. Plus, with such amazing natural wonders like the Grand Canyon and Saguaro National Park, there’s certainly no shortage of inspiration to create something big.

The Arizona tech scene spreads as far and wide as the Sonoran Desert, with company headquarters scattered across the state. With companies such as GoDaddy and PureChat in Scottsdale, ClearVoice and LeadFuze in Phoenix, Prospectify in Tempe, and Infusionsoft in Chandler — Arizona is bustling with startups, tech and B2B businesses.

This desert state is abloom with plans to increase its global investments, business prospects and technological know-how. In 2016, the Greater Phoenix Economic Council released the Metro Phoenix Global Investment Plan, with the goal of enhancing Phoenix’s global competitiveness. That same year, the City of Phoenix was awarded the U.S. President’s “E” Award for its contribution to export trade growth.

“Exporting is essential to the success of the businesses we work with,” Greg Stanton, Mayor of the City of Phoenix, said. “Every day we see the growth of Phoenix businesses, due in large part to exporting. This growth has enabled our Phoenix businesses to add jobs and support their local communities as they expand their bottom line while at the same time making a significant and valued contribution to the expansion of our export economy.”

In addition to growth via exporting, companies such as Uber, PayPal, Weebly, DoubleDutch and more are helping to increase the number of jobs throughout Arizona. According to Forbes, tech jobs rose 18.6 percent between 2010 and 2015, and Phoenix is expected to continue attracting new businesses, startups and entrepreneurs.

Meanwhile, Phoenix ranked among the top 25 rising American technology epicenters in the 2016 Innovation That Matters study. This joint research project compiled by D.C. startup incubator 1776, Free Enterprise and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, “examines and ranks 25 cities’ readiness to capitalize on the inevitable shift to a digital economy.”

Arizona Tech and Startup Highlights:
  • A hub for Arizona’s tech scene, TechAZ provides information on events, jobs, startups, funding and more.
  • Galvanize is a collection of urban campuses where people can learn essential tech skills. The Galvanize Phoenix learning community is based in the 2-square mile Warehouse District.
  • Gangplank is a free collaborative workspace to help entrepreneurs learn from each other and grow their businesses, with locations in Avondale, Chandler and Queen Creek Arizona (and Virginia and Ontario, too).
  • A member-supported collaborative coworking space in Phoenix, Co+Hoots, supports a community and blog, as well as hosts events and more.
  • #yesphx is a “unifying banner that every founder, startup, and organization can rally behind without concern for the agenda or bottom line they’re supporting.”
  • The Center for Entrepreneurial Innovation is a full-service business incubator located in Central Phoenix.
  • StartUpAZ Foundation is a part of the Arizona Community Foundation focusing on connectivity, capital and talent.
  • Arizona’s online tech news source, AZ Tech Beat, provides coverage on events, jobs, startups and more.
  • The Greater Phoenix Economic Council works to achieve an “economically sound and sustainable region.”
  • Check out the City of Phoenix Economic Development for information on new developments, small business wage growth and more.
  • Focused on growing and strengthening Arizona’s economy, The Arizona Commerce Authority works with businesses to recruit, grow and create in Arizona.
  • Startup Grind Phoenix is a global community for entrepreneurs providing conferences, events and more.
  • Arizona Tech Investors are looking for investment opportunities in high growth seed and early stage IT and Life Sciences startups across Arizona and beyond.
  • The ASU Scottsdale Innovation Center, SkySong, is focused on innovation, technology and economic expansion.
  • A free five-day event on Feb. 19-23, 2018, PHX Startup Week is for anyone interested in the Phoenix startup scene and entrepreneurship.
  • SEED SPOT is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to supporting all social entrepreneurs with programs in Phoenix and Arcosanti.
  • Arizona Innovation Challenge awards $3 million annually for promising technology ventures.

Some Arizona-based startup founders believe the success of their companies are in part due to basing their startups in the Grand Canyon State. J.T. Marino and Daehee Park, co-founders of Tuft & Needle, decided to run their mattress store out of Phoenix instead of Silicon Valley.

They wrote in Tuft & Needle Magazine, “ As it turned out, somewhat to our surprise, Phoenix as a city and as a place to start a business was unusually attractive  —  and more than a little underrated.” They then cite the costs of living and business and Arizona’s work climate as contributing factors.

Regarding prospective employees Marino and Park continue, “There’s surprising diversity in Phoenix  —  Californians, Midwesterners, East Coast transplants, Mexicans, Native Americans  —  which adds to the richness of the place and to the crop of people we can recruit from.”

Meanwhile, Heidi Jannenga, president and co-founder of WebPT, believes that the support of the Phoenix community was key in helping their business become what it is today. Jannenga wrote in Medium, “Thanks to an uprising of collaboration among business and community leaders, the disparate tech community has come together to form a more unified voice and vision  —  and that movement has breathed new life into Arizona’s job market and economic development.”

Real weather term "bomb" blows up on social media

WASHINGTON/January 04, 2018 (AP)(STL.News) —When it comes to weather, it’s hard to sound scarier than “bomb cyclone.”

It’s a version of a real weather term that applies to a massive winter storm that pulled together Wednesday off the U.S. Southeast coast. But as fearsome as the storm is with high winds and some snow, it may not be quite as explosive as the term sounds.

Meteorologists have used the term “bomb” for storms for decades, based on a strict definition, said University of Oklahoma meteorology professor Jason Furtado.

After it showed it showed up in a Washington Post story on Tuesday, the weather geek term took on a life of its own on social media. The same thing happened four years ago with “polar vortex,” another long-used weather term that was little known to the public until then.

“Bombogenesis is the technical term. Bomb cyclone is a shortened version of it, better for social media,” said Weather.US meteorologist Ryan Maue, who helped popularize polar vortex in 2014.

“The actual impacts aren’t going to be a bomb at all,” Maue said. “There’s nothing exploding or detonating.”

Storm intensity is measured by central pressure — the lower the pressure, the stronger. A storm is considered a “bomb” when the pressure drops rapidly — at least 24 millibars in 24 hours.

This storm looks like it will intensify at twice that rate, said Bob Oravec, lead forecaster at the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center.

So far, the storm has dumped freak snow on the Southeast. It’s aiming for the Northeast, where the snow forecast for Thursday isn’t that big a deal, Furtado and others said. The worst of this storm will stay out to sea. What is going to be bigger is the high winds — gusts exceeding 60 mph — and the bitter cold that follows, they said.

Bomb cyclones draw air from polar regions after they leave. In this case, it means extra cold Arctic air because of where the polar vortex is, Furtado said.

Worldwide, about 40 to 50 “bomb cyclones” brew each year, but most are over open ocean and nobody but weather geeks notice, Maue said.

“We use the term bomb,” Furtado said. “We know what it means, but I do think it gets a little hyped up.”

There is still an awfully long way to go in the current NBA season, but for those of you who like to bet on the Finals winner early, we are going to take a look at the current NBA Championship odds. When you play futures, it’s almost like playing the stock market, as you want to get in at just the right time, as the betting lines for the team that you like right now may end up being the best you are going to get, especially if said team gets on a roll that causes the bookmakers to shorten their NBA title odds.

Let’s take a look at who the current favorites are, and what sort of price you can expect to get for them if you were to wager right now.

Updated NBA Championship Odds – January 4th Edition

Eastern Conference Playoffs Picture

  • 1-Boston Celtics
  • 2-Toronto Raptors
  • 3-Cleveland Cavaliers
  • 4-Washington Wizards
  • 5-Milwaukee Bucks
  • 6-Detroit Pistons
  • 7-Miami Heat
  • 8-Indiana Pacers

NBA FINALS POSSIBLE MATCHUP ODDS

Western Conference Playoffs Picture

  • 1-Golden State Warriors
  • 2-Houston Rockets
  • 3-San Antonio Spurs
  • 4-Minnesota Timberwolves
  • 5-Oklahoma City Thunder
  • 6-Denver Nuggets
  • 7-Portland Trail Blazers
  • 8-New Orleans Pelicans

Top Contenders

Golden State Warriors

  • NBA Championship Odds: -220

It’s no real surprise to see the Warriors in as the favorite, as they have been in the last 3 NBA Finals, winning 2 of them, and are once again leading the way in the Western Conference. This is a team that is totally stacked from top to bottom, and even when one of their top guys sits out with an injury, the other big guns just step up and deliver a little more.

The Warriors are likely going to remain in this spot until some other team in the West proves that they have what it takes to bring the champions down.

Cleveland Cavaliers

  • NBA Championship Odds: +500

Again, no real surprises here, as the Cavaliers have also been to each of the last 3 NBA Finals. They are not having a great regular season to this point, and they have been particularly poor on the road, but this seems to be the same discussion that we have about them every year at this stage of the season.

This team very often looks as though they are bored with the daily grind of the regular season, but they always seem to save their best stuff for when it really matters in the playoffs.

Houston Rockets

  • NBA Championship Odds: +650

The Rockets actually held the top spot in the Western Conference for a little while, but now sit in second behind the Warriors. Houston has been consistently good all season long, but are in a little bit of a slump right now, mostly because they are missing James Harden, who is expected to be out 2-6 weeks with an injury.

If you like the Rockets to win it all this season, you may want to hold off on wagering on them, just to see how their odds change if they continue to struggle without their star player.

Boston Celtics

  • NBA Championship Odds: +750

The Boston Celtics are having a fantastic season, and it has to be said that the addition of Kyrie Irving has played a major role in their current success.

According to the latest NBA Championship Odds, Boston and Houston are among the top contenders.

This is a player who learned what it takes to win during his time in Cleveland, and you know that he would love to be part of a team that finally put an end to the Cavaliers run to the NBA Finals.

San Antonio Spurs

  • NBA Championship Odds: +800

If you are going to talk about consistency in the NBA, you need to talk about the San Antonio Spurs. They have been good for as long as anyone can remember, and they generally always end up in the top 2 or 3 in the Western Conference.

They have not been able to get past the Warriors in recent years, and now have the Rockets to contend with, too. Still worth a little wager, though, at this price.

Rest of the Teams

  • Atlanta Hawks: +35000
  • Brooklyn Nets: +35000
  • Charlotte Hornets: +15000
  • Chicago Bulls: +35000
  • Dallas Mavericks: +35000
  • Denver Nuggets: +8000
  • Detroit Pistons: +7500
  • Indiana Pacers: +12000
  • Los Angeles Clippers: +12000
  • Los Angeles Lakers: +20000
  • Memphis Grizzlies: +30000
  • Miami Heat: +6500
  • Milwaukee Bucks: +3300
  • Minnesota T-Wolves: +2300
  • New Orleans Pelicans: +10000
  • New York Knicks: +15000
  • Oklahoma City Thunder: +1800
  • Orlando Magic: +30000
  • Philadelphia 76ers: +7500
  • Phoenix Suns: +35000
  • Portland Blazers: +12000
  • Sacramento Kings: +35000
  • Toronto Raptors: +2300
  • Utah Jazz: +10000
  • Washington Wizards: +3300
