— Jason Woody

KANSAS CITY, MO., UNITED STATES, December 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — KANSAS CITY, Mo. – An exceedingly rare, museum-quality Dorflinger cranberry cut to clear glass ewer, 17 inches tall, soared to $75,000 at a sale featuring two major collections of American Brilliant Cut Glass, held November 18th by Woody Auction, online and at the Hilton Kansas City Airport. It was the final major cut glass auction of the year for Woody Auction, which is based in Douglass, Kansas.

“It’s refreshing to see that quality glass still commands strong interest,” said Jason Woody of Woody Auction, describing a sale in which ten lots sold for $10,000 or more, 17 lots sold for between $5,000 and $10,000 and 61 lots sold for between $1,000 and $5,000. Nearly 375 lots in total came up for bid. About 65 bidders attended the auction in person, while 246 registered and approved bidders bid online.

The Dorflinger ewer was the undisputed star lot of the auction. The piece boasted an extensive pattern and embossed sterling silver base by Redlich & Company of New York City. A matching ewer, only in green, is on display at the Dorflinger Museum. A set of red and green such ewers, either 12 of each or 12 total, was commissioned for the wedding of William K. Vanderbilt to Virginia Graham Fair in 1899.

The auction was co-headlined by the American Brilliant Cut Glass collections of Tom Grabb of Indiana and Bill Chandler of Tennessee. These include many rare patterns including Pueblo, Waldorf, Bellevue, Crystal City, Atom, Rex, and others. Following are additional highlights from the no-reserves auction, where all lots sold regardless of price. All figures quoted are hammer.

The runner-up top lot was an American Brilliant Cut Glass (ABCG) round tray, signed Hawkes and in the Pueblo pattern (also known as the Concentric Circles pattern), 11 inches diameter ($24,000). That was followed by a fantastic ABCG pedestal punch bowl in the Stars and Stripes pattern by Sinclair, with a hobstar foot and the finest quality blank, 9 inches in height and 14 ½ inches diameter ($14,000).

Lots 111 and 112 were both red cut to clear wine glasses, signed “Fritsche” and offered as individual lots, and they gaveled for identical selling prices of $11,000 each. The 5 ¾ inch tall stems were in the Webb Rock Crystal pattern and were made specifically for Daniel J. Sully accompanied by photocopied correspondence from Thomas Webb & Sons. Bidders were drawn to the two glasses’ outstanding color.

Another superb cranberry cut to clear ABCG wine glass – this one in the Parisian pattern by Dorflinger – hammered for $9,000. It was a cut stem of the highest quality and has a fine, scalloped base. Also, a group of five solid cased ruby ABCG wine glasses in a spiral pattern by Dorflinger, each 4 ½ inches tall showing fantastic color and a scalloped ray cut base, saw spirited bidding before finishing at $27,500.

Two very different lots posted the same selling prices of $9,500. One was an exceptional ABCG pedestal rose bowl in the Croesus pattern by J. Hoare, with outstanding quality and heavy blank. The other was a round ABCG tray, 13 inches in diameter, signed Tuthill in the Rex pattern, superbly-cut.

A set of four claret (red table wine) ABCG glasses in the Wedgemere pattern by Libbey, each one five inches tall and with a scalloped hobstar petticoat base and extra nice blanks, finished at $13,000. Also, a 10 ¼ inch tall ABCG claret jug in a hobstar, swirled tusk, clear bar and fan motif, comprising a fine Gorham sterling repousse spout, lid and handle, an example of the highest quality, breezed to $9,000.

The glass pattern of the claret jug just described matched the 7-inch-tall ABCG cider pitcher in the Wedgemere pattern by Libbey with a pattern cut handle, a piece of excellent quality, with very deep cutting and outstanding blank. It fetched $8,000. Also, a set of four 6 ¼ inch tall ABCG water goblets, also in the Wedgemere pattern by Libbey, each with an outstanding Hobstar petticoat base, hit $13,000.

The sale also featured a set of four saucer Champagne glasses, all in the Wedgemere pattern by Libbey, showing wonderful clarity ($10,000); a solid green Rhine wine glass, Webb Rock crystal cut in the historical pattern of the Gary set, featuring a dragon and floral motif ($9,500); and a set of five yellow cut to clear ABCG wine glasses in the Russian pattern, all with star cut buttons ($13,000).

Moving forward, Woody Auction will conduct regular auction events in its Douglass gallery, located at 120 Third Street, and occasionally at other venues. First up will be an online-only auction on Saturday, January 13th, 2018, featuring cut glass and art glass, pickle castors, RS Prussia, and more. That will be followed by a major auction on Saturday, February 24th, in the new Douglass gallery, featuring original paintings by Birger Sandzén, not offered for sale in over 40 years, plus bronzes, art glass and furniture. During this auction, Woody Auction will commemorate the completion of their new facility with an Open House celebration.

After that, Woody Auction’s 2018 lineup will include an antique auction on Saturday, March 10th; a cut glass auction on Saturday, March 24th, an antique estate auction on Saturday, April 28th; and a major cut glass auction on Saturday, May 12th, at the St. Charles Convention Center in Missouri.

Caridad Rivera of Bilingual Ministry to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — In this day and age, it seems almost impossible to live a life devoted to serving God. The truth is it’s not impossible. If we can continue to serve Him each day, He renews our strength to live and hunger for His presence.

Caridad Rivera is the author of The Life of a Christian, a guide for those with the desire to reach out for Jesus Christ.

“This book is for anyone looking to know more about the Christian lifestyle,” says Caridad. “If you’re a new Christian just starting for the first time to serve God or you’ve been a Christian for a while but are struggling with your beliefs, this book is for you.”

Published in January 2015, The Life of a Christian describes the many transformations Christians will go through in life.

“I started serving the lord but I couldn’t adjust at the time. It was a completely different lifestyle to what I was used to. recalls Caridad, “Now that I’vd given my life to Christ, what was expected of me? As I continued to serve the lord, slowly but surely I learned. As I began to grow in the Lord, I started to think of all those people me who might have struggled with the same issues. I wanted to write about the life of a Christian with the hopes that it will serve to build solid foundation.

“My only reward is for the reader to have structure and a solid foundation as they continue to serve the Lord. There is no better satisfaction than to see someone struggling and overcome their struggle,” says Caridad.

An ordained minister and pastor, today Caridad is the founder of the Bilingual Ministry, to reach people who speak English and Spanish. She plans to have The Life of a Christian translated into Spanish.

“As Christians it is our responsibility to spread the gospel in a clear and concise way, to preach to the soul,” says Caridad. “It is imperative that we be fully equipped with the all the necessary tools and resources to reach the souls for Christ in more than one language. Our purpose is to equip our brothers & sisters to gain a confidence to communicate to both the English and Spanish Community.

CUTV News Radio will feature Caridad Rivera in an interview Jim Masters on December 15th at 1pm EST.

New Years Celebration — January 9 @ 8 PM

The North/South Chamber Orchestra celebrates the New Year performing a free-admission concert in New York City.

The performers, all excellent…North/South Consonance is a high quality ensemble…The listener was rewarded with a diverting sampler of recent compositional styles”

— New York Times

NEW YORK, NY, USA, December 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The North/South Chamber Orchestra welcomes the New Year on Tuesday
evening January 9, 2018 performing optimistic and vibrant works by
four living American composers.

Violinist Kurt Nikkanen and pianist Maria Asteriadou will appear as
soloists in the first New York performance of Encore II by Dinos
Constantinides — the Greek-American composer celebrating his 90th
birthday next year.

Other works also receiving their first hearing in New York include
the American Elegy by Richard Brooks; Hextet by Paul Reale; and Fire
Within by the ensemble's conductor, Max Lifchitz.

The concert will take place at the intimate and acoustically superior
auditorium of Christ & St Stephen's Church (120 West 69th Street) on
Manhattan's Upper West Side. The free-admission event will start at 8
PM and end around 9:30 PM. The auditorium is ADA accessible. No
tickets or reservations needed.

The composers will be in attendance and will introduce their works to
the audience. Composers and performers are available for interviews
and media events. They may be contacted via <ns.concerts@att.net>.

Since its inception in 1980, the North/South Consonance, Inc. has
brought to the attention of the New York City public over 1,000 works
by composers hailing from the Americas and elsewhere representing a
wide spectrum of aesthetic views. Its activities are made possible in
part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts
and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs as well as by
the generosity of numerous individual donors.


Brooklyn-based Richard Brooks has received grants from the National
Endowment for the Arts and the NYS Music Teachers National
Association. A graduate of the Crane School of Music and New York
University, Brooks was elected President of the American Composers
Alliance in 1993. His opera Rapunzel — commissioned by Binghamton's
Tri-Cities Opera — has also been mounted by the Cincinnati Opera,
the Opera Theatre of Northern Virginia and Denver's Central City
Singers. His compositions appear on recordings issued by the Capstone
and Ravello labels.

Brooks' American Elegy for string orchestra was written in response
to the horrific events of September 11. The composer states that the
work's musical fabric "incorporates fragments from the melody of
America the Beautiful generating a type of reverie and reverent
homage to the memory of all that was lost as a result of the 9/11
attack on America."

The New York Time, described Dinos Constantinides as a composer whose
"music speaks simply, often combining Greek modes with an attractive
quality of ritual mystery." Born in 1928 in Ioannina, Constantinides
began his musical studies in his native Greece before moving to the
US to train at Indiana University and The Juilliard School. As a
violinist, Constantinides played with the Indianapolis Symphony
before serving as concertmaster for the Baton Rouge Symphony. He is
the current Music Director of the Louisiana Sinfonietta.

Constantinides' Encore II — a double concerto for violin, piano and
string orchestra in one movement — is a vivacious and rhythmically
exciting composition. Its simple formal structure features a hasty
opening, a lyrical interlude and a fast concluding section. The
soloists for the occasion, violinist Kurt Nikkanen and pianist Maria
Asteriadou, premiered the work in Baton Rouge last September.

Max Lifchitz began his musical training in his native Mexico City
before relocating to NYC to attend The Juilliard School. Active as
composer, pianist and conductor, he earned first prize in the 1976
International Gaudeamus Competition for Performers of Twentieth
Century Music held in Holland. He has appeared on concert stages
throughout Latin America, Europe and the United States. His recently
completed Fire Within was written as a reaction to the tragic passing
of Heather Heyer in the midst of the distressing events that
transpired in Charlottsville, VA last August.

Los Angeles-based Paul Reale studied at Columbia University and The
University of Pennsylvania. His mentors included Otto Luening, George
Crumb and Edgar Varese. Between 1969 and 2004 he was professor of
music at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is the
recipient of six awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the
Luckmann Prize and Beeler Prizes and commissions from the Jerome
Foundation and the Ahmanson Organ Trust. Commercial recordings of his
works are available from Music & Arts and Naxos.

Reale writes that the music of Hextet "summons up images of witches,
zombies, and other dark world creatures, as is revealed in the names
of the three movements: I: Tarantella, II: Zombies, III:
Walpurgisnacht. Throughout the movements are all kinds of scary
effects made out of collisions of ragged dissonances, overlapping
glissandi, and harmonic surprises."


American violinist Kurt Nikkanen made his Carnegie Hall debut,
performing with the New York Symphony before being invited by Zubin
Mehta to perform the Paganini Concerto No.1 with the New York
Philharmonic for a Young People's Concert. The Concertmaster of the
New York City Ballet Orchestra, Nikkanen has given numerous
performances of the John Adams Violin Concerto, with orchestras such
as the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, London Sinfonietta, Deutsches
Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Oregon Symphony, HallÉ Orchestra and
Cincinnati Symphony (all under the composer's direction).

The New York Times described pianist Maria Asteriadou's palying as
"showing unusual poise, confident technique and an intimate contact
with style usually reserved for mature professionals and very few of
them." A graduate of Juilliard and Manhattan School of Music,
Asteriadou has performed in major halls through the United States,
Canada, and Europe, including Carnegie Hall.

Embarking on its 38th consecutive season, the North/South Chamber
Orchestra presents a yearly concert series in New York City while
maintaining an active recording schedule. The ensemble's recents
release features five fascinating compositions inspired by Arshile
Gorky's abstract expressionist paintings by New York based composer
Robert Martin.

Oil on board painting by Wayne Thiebaud and art glass vase by Ercole Barovier headline Nadeau's New Year's Day auction

Gorgeous mosaic vase executed circa 1925 by Italian designer Ercole Barovier (1888-1974).

Large (40 inches by 28 inches) oil on canvas painting by Virginie Demont-Breton (Fr., 1859-1935).

Beautiful Tiffany Studios Daffodil table lamp with leaded Favrile 20-inch glass shade.

Pair of late Louis XV Charles Topino marquetry bonheurs du jour, circa 1765.

An oil on board painting by Wayne Thiebaud (Am., b. 1920) titled Lollipop Tree, and a lovely art glass vase by Ercole Barovier (It., 1888-1974), are top lots.

This promises to be the most important sale we’ve held to date, one that will be even bigger and more special than previous New Year’s Day auctions.”

— Ed Nadeau

WINDSOR, CONN., UNITED STATES, December 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — WINDSOR, Conn. – An oil on board painting by Wayne Thiebaud (Am., b. 1920) titled Lollipop Tree, a lovely art glass vase by Ercole Barovier (It., 1888-1974), and one of the finest collections of Victorian furniture ever offered at auction are just part of what bidders can expect at Nadeau’s Auction Gallery’s annual New Year’s Day auction on Monday, January 1st, at 11 am Eastern.

“This promises to be the most important sale we’ve held to date, one that will be even bigger and more special than previous New Year’s Day auctions,” said Ed Nadeau of Nadeau’s Auction Gallery. “In the past we strived hard to reach and surpass the $1 million mark, and more than once we actually hit $1.4 million. This one, though, has the merchandise to reach $2-3 million.”

Over 700 quality lots will come under the gavel, online and in Nadeau’s gallery located at 25 Meadow Road in Windsor. For those unable to attend in person, online bidding will be provided by LiveAuctioneers.com, Bidsquare.com and Invaluable.com. Telephone and absentee (or left) bids will also be accepted. Previews will be held daily, from Dec. 27th-30th, or by appointment.

A preview will also be held on auction day, January 1st, from 9 am until the first gavel falls at 11 am. That’s when eager bidders will begin vying for the many treasures that can be viewed now, online, on the abovenamed bidding platform sites, as well as at www.NadeausAuction.com. Most of the merchandise has been pulled from quality estates and collections in the region.

The expected top lot of the sale is the Thiebaud oil on board under glass titled Lollipop Tree, created in 1969. The colorful and whimsical painting, measuring 13 inches by 10 ¼ inches, is signed and dated in pencil by the artist, bottom center, and has an Allen Stone Galleries, Inc. label on verso (where it was exhibited in 1970). The painting should bring $400,000-$800,000.

Wayne Thiebaud is a pop artist widely known for his colorful works depicting everyday objects, such as pies, lipstick, paint cans, ice cream cones, pastries and hot dogs. But he’s also renowned for his landscapes and figural paintings. He uses heavy pigment and exaggerated colors to depict his subjects, and the well-defined shadows characteristic of advertisements are usually evident.

The vaso mosaico (mosaic vase) executed by the noted Italian entrepreneur and designer Ercole Barovier carries a pre-sale estimate of $30,000-$50,000. The 9 ½ inch tall vase, from circa 1925, consists of clear glass with a mosaic pattern of clear, cobalt, amethyst and emerald, and a rim with gold inclusions. A little roughness at the rim is not expected to dampen bidder enthusiasm.

Ercole Barovier was the son of Benvenuto Barovier, one of the most important glass furnace owners of the late 19th and early 20th century. Ercole made his mark very early on, inventing numerous decorative techniques that contributed significantly to the renovation of art glass. He came up with no fewer than 25,000 designs, and his works can be seen in museums worldwide.

The fine selection of Victorian furnishings comes from the estate of Frank Perotti, led by a pair of Renaissance Revival walnut and burl walnut cabinets, 75 inches tall, with pierce carved tops over bronze panels over shaped marble tops (est. $6,000-$12,000). Also featured is a fine group of Louis XV and continental pieces (several of them signed) and some Margolis furniture pieces.

The furniture category also includes two late Louis XV Charles Topino marquetry bonheurs du jour (small, delicate French writing tables with raised backs). The pieces, both circa 1765, will be offered as individual lots. Both are ormolu mounted tables made from several woods. One is stamped Charles Topino (est. $20,000-$40,000); the other is unstamped (est. $15,000-$25,000).

Fine estate jewelry will be highlighted by a Tiffany & Company ladies’ diamond engagement ring, set with a center Asscher cut diamond weighing 4.58 carats. It is flanked by baguette cut diamonds. The circa 1930 ring, with color G and clarity VS1, should sell for $80,000-$120,000.

Two very different lots have identical estimates of $15,000-$25,000. One is a beautiful Tiffany Studios Daffodil table lamp having a leaded Favrile 20-inch glass shade with cascading daffodils on a bronze base, marked Tiffany. The other is a 40 inch by 28 inch oil on canvas painting by Virginie Demont-Breton (Fr., 1859-1935), titled Mother and Child in the Garden, artist signed.

Police Departments Today Process A Tremendous Amount Of Video Footage As Evidence



Ken Mills, General Manager, Surveillance and Security, Dell EMC, Says…
Police Need to Think Beyond 3-5 Years…As Digital Evidence Storage Needs Grow

We are honored to have Ken Mills, General Manager, Surveillance and Security, Dell EMC join us "In The Boardroom" on SecuritySolutionsWatch to discuss the latest trends in security and surveillance.”

— Martin Eli, Publisher

NEW YORK, NY, USA, December 13, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Police departments today process a tremendous amount of video footage as evidence of crimes, which includes managing and storing data and ensuring it is court admissible.

Further, storage requirements for surveillance and body-worn camera data differ widely from state to state, depending on the crime. Each state is different as far as what the law mandates for the length of retention for the data collected. Minor traffic stops may only need to be kept for 30-45 days, DUI’s for over three years, and Federal crimes may need to be kept for many years or in some cases, indefinitely.

Organizations must think beyond three-year or five-year buying cycles and consider how they will manage and store this video for 25 years or more—on-premises versus in the cloud.

With more than 10 million arrests (https://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/fbi-releases-2016-crime-statistics) made in 2016 alone – excluding those for traffic violations – body-worn camera data adds up to a lot of storage. On average, each body cam can expect to require a minimum of 1TB of storage per year. And body cameras are just one component of the video data that police departments are tasked with managing.

In fact, currently there’s a litany of other technologies used by police department and officers collecting evidence. This includes video, surveillance cameras, drones, in-car video, mobile devices as well as cell phone downloads to even complete mirror images of hard drives—potentially terabytes of information.

Choosing the right storage solution requires a clear understanding of the costs associated with long-term storage, how quickly a particular police department will need access to evidentiary support, the product life cycle, and legislative storage requirements.

Because of the diversity of digital data collected, police departments must build a data platform that can collect, store and manage individual pools of data. Not addressing the different video storage needs holistically can lead to big challenges for agencies down the line, and create an overwhelming issue for the agency to manage its data long-term.

Keep Your Architecture Options Open
Many agencies have invested in programs that create, utilize, or provide data that is proprietary and cannot be manipulated. To avoid the risk of limiting video to a single company’s platform, departments should bypass a closed solution as it may prevent other key applications gaining access to that data.

Because the video world is constantly changing, an open platform will enable departments to implement the best solutions today and tomorrow. Open platforms enable departments to integrate body cam data with the best available industry applications. Open platforms also provide the scalability and flexibility that agencies need without binding them to separate cloud storage solutions.

Ultimately, using an open platform data management system can be a cost effective approach that will ensure various file types are maintained, usable, and meeting an agency’s needs for years to come.

Understanding Your Surveillance Storage Architecture Options
Storage is the foundation layer of any surveillance solution. However, many organizations purchase body-worn and other surveillance devices before they consider storage requirements or cost. This foundation layer must support an open platform capable of managing disparate data sets (from multiple devices) while addressing the challenge of scale head-on. It is important to understand the differences among the three major surveillance storage architectures— distributed, centralized, and cloud—and what option would be most suitable to your specific organizational needs and requirements.

Distributed architectures: High bandwidth, reliable, affordable
Typically support several hundred surveillance devices. They store video and surveillance data locally and then periodically transfer the digital data set to the central platform. For example, a ‘satellite’ police station may store data locally in office, then periodically transfer it over to headquarters—the centralized location. Distributed architectures often integrate the data with applications and other systems, such as access control and intrusion detection, without engaging a central server. The resulting architecture reduces single points of failure and distributes processing requirements over many, smaller sites.

Centralized architectures: Massive-scale, analytics ready
Commonly used by police headquarters, schools, Federal/government, airports, and energy companies. For example, centralized surveillance architectures host high camera- or device-count environments (typically thousands of surveillance devices) and are able to support large amounts of surveillance data. Storage must be made efficient, and utilization rates must be high to prevent price creep, while migration time must be extremely low to non-existent to seamlessly apply changes in resolution or pixilation.

Cloud architecture: Faster infrastructure deployment, elastic
Many companies opt to go on-premises for their primary storage, but use cloud architectures for deeper ‘cold’ storage. Cloud provides an elastic storage platform that easily expands as data volumes grow. For surveillance-specific industries, this means expanding volumes in a centralized private cloud or even leveraging public cloud storage for more rapid capacity expansion. Ultimately, cloud storage can improve storage efficiencies and help reduce the costs associated with storing inactive data on more expensive storage solutions.

Choosing a vendor that offers both cloud and on-premises storage architectures is a better bet as it will safeguard an organization’s assets while allowing for future growth. Many companies opt to go on-premises first with the bulk of their ‘cold’ or long-term storage, and then go to the cloud for deeper storage. This approach is often more cost-effective, provides greater security, and simplifies application integration.

Dell EMC’s open, hybrid architecture—built on both on-premises and cloud technologies—gives organizations the flexibility and scale they need to seamlessly scale their body-worn and surveillance solutions not only in the immediate future, but long-term as well as requirements and regulations change. It also enables organizations to manage data from a host of other applications such as crime lab, digital evidence, surveillance, drones, in-car, license plate recognition, interview room rooms, crime scene footage, and more.
