Brentwood-based Swiftwick today announced its cut-resistant hockey sock is now available for general consumer purchase.
NHL players with the Nashville Predators, Florida Panthers, Phoenix Coyotes and Dallas Stars use the sock.
Swiftwick began developing the sock three years ago to deliver superior cut and impact resistance against potentially devastating Achilles tendon injuries, yet also allows players to perform effectively.
“No other sock on the market has ever combined cut-resistance, moisture wicking and compression,” Mark Cleveland, Swiftwick co-founder and CEO, said in a release. “In addition, these socks do not inhibit performance on the ice. We’re able to manage moisture while providing blood flow benefits and the performance enhancement of compression, without compromising the overall feel of the sock.”
Lost in last week's announcement that H.G. Hill Realty and GBT Realty Corp. decided to no longer move forward on their proposed The Streets of Brentwood mixed-use project (read more here) was this little tidbit: Hill and GBT never purchased the Tennessee Baptist Convention land on which they wanted to develop TSofB.
Given the fact that Hill currently is undertaking multiple projects in 12South, Hillsboro Village and Midtown, the company clearly calculated correctly by making sure it could garner both citizen and City of Brentwood support before closing on the purchase of the site (for $9 million, no less). So what does the Tennessee Baptist Convention do now? That is uncertain but the entity feels the property remains valuable — and its future sale will be a part of God's plan (read more here).
Confirmation.com has unveiled a set of teaching tools to better prepare future CPAs for the demands of the audit environment.
Brentwood-based Confirmation.com worked with Bentley University in Waltham, Mass., and Fordham University in Bronx, N.Y., to develop case study materials that bring real-world auditing applications into the classroom.
As part of the case study — titled Simply Soups Inc.: A Teaching Case Designed to Integrate the Electronic Confirmation Process into the Auditing Curriculum — Confirmation.com also created edu.Confirmation.com, which functions as a simulated audit for educational purposes to help accounting and auditing students better understand the beneficial role technology has in today’s audit practice.
“In recent years, there has been a noticeable shift of incorporating more case study materials and simulated programs into college curriculum because it can increase the students’ interest and motivation to actively learn a particular subject,” Chris Schellhorn, Confirmation.com CEO, said in a release.
Confirmation.com provides web-based audit confirmation solutions.
