BirdDog Version 4.0

BirdDog™ Information Systems is pleased to announce the release of Version 4.0 of Remote Data Retrieval. This newest system, to which you automatically have access when you log into our host site, provides enhanced features that are certain to make you even more productive... such as a more streamlined and intuitive user interface, the ability for end-users to perform ad hoc changes to alarm settings, and layered administration. With layered administration, end-user organizations can assign BirdDog client administrators who, in turn, will be able to add/delete other enterprise users, set each user's rights (from read-only through full editing, including use of Demand Polling), reset user passwords, add/delete Morning Report recipients, and much more.

In addition to the BirdDog Remote Data Retrieval system functional enhancements, we've also deployed new security provisions to further complement our previously implemented use of an HTTPS website to provide full SSL encryption of your sensitive and proprietary information. These enhancements include the use of unique email addresses as User IDs, as well as stronger Password requirements with history restrictions and forced routine changes. As before, with just a single account User ID and Password, your log-in will provide direct access to all BirdDog SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) systems to which you have end-user rights. And as you add or remove systems from your user profile, the single sign-on process will automatically recognize those changes.

BirdDog Security Policy Change Alert

Security Policy Change Alert - For the enhanced security of BirdDog™ Information Systems users, effective November 11, 2013, User IDs will be unique email addresses and account password requirements will be strengthened. New passwords will need to be at least 8 characters in length and contain at least one each of the following characters: uppercase alphabetical; lowercase alphabetical; numeric; and “special” (such as @, &, _, #, etc.). At the appropriate time, you will be prompted during your BirdDog log-in to click on a webpage link that will provide more details and guide you through your password change process.

Coastal Flow Employee Competes in Fitness Competitions
Date: 2/24/2015

Shannan Frank, a 23 year old Measurement Analyst at Coastal Flow Measurement Company, recently competed in the Dre Dillard Classic Fitness Competition on January 31st. She won 7th place out of 27 participants. Placing in the top ten in her first competition has given her high hopes and motivation for future events
 
Shannan has been preparing her body for almost a year to compete in fitness competitions. Her training involves working out twice a day for six to seven days a week. Her morning workout consists solely of cardio and her evening work out consists of at least 1 hour of weight training and about another 45 minutes of cardio. She also adheres to a strict diet of lots of proteins and few carbs. As the weeks draw closer to the competition, she grows stricter on her workouts and diet.
 
Shannan described her experience in competing, “You work on your physique…before the competition and then when you get there it’s all about posing and how you present yourself, whatever you’ve created. So really what it comes down to at that point when you get on stage everyone pretty much has the same physique, so it’s the posing when you’re on stage that really matters…it really comes down to how well you can pose yourself and make yourself look onstage…it’s all presentation.“
 
On March 28th, she will be competing in the Phil Heath Classic against about 70 other competitors in her class. She did not express a bit of nervousness in facing greater odds. Instead, her natural competitiveness gives her confidence in rising up to the challenge.
 
Shannan has been working for Coastal Flow for 7 months as a Measurement Analyst. She is originally from California, but she studied Economics at Arizona State University, where she had the opportunity to study abroad in Australia for a year. Her long-term dreams include making it to Pro level in the fitness competitions, which would give her opportunities for modeling contracts for fitness magazines. Her Coastal Flow family encourages her to continue working hard to make her dreams become reality.
