EDRM Releases Guidelines for E-Discovery Processing for Public Comment

EDRM

Setting the global standards for e-discovery

If processing is not done properly, the rest of the process can fail, opening you to the expense of redoing later work if not sanctions from the court.”

— John Tredennick, CEO of Merlin Search Technologies, Inc.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, USA, November 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Setting the global standards for e-discovery, the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) is pleased to announce the release for public comment of its new EDRM Guidelines for E-Discovery Processing. The new publication is available for public comment before its release as final. Comments on this version will be accepted through December 15, 2021.

EDRM develops and promotes thought leadership, frameworks and best practices in e-discovery, with its engaged global community comprised of knowledgeable, multidisciplinary professionals. EDRM contributors continue to enhance e-discovery, privacy, security and information governance frameworks, processes and standards.

The Processing Guidelines Project is led by eDiscovery experts, EDRM Global Advisory Council Leaders and co-Trustees, John Tredennick, CEO of Merlin Search Technologies, Inc. and Craig Ball, of Craig D. Ball, PC. Tammy Dahl, ACP, CEDS of Mesch Clark Rothschild was the Assistant Editor and the Drafting Team included Christopher Cella, Aon, Tracyann Eggen, CommonSpirit Health, William Hamilton, University of Florida Levin School of Law, Oran Sears, Relativity, Sarai Shubert, iPRO and Jeffrey Wolff, ZyLAB. Organization names are provided for identification and not for any other purpose.

“Processing is enabling technology for data normalization for AI and machine learning, search indexing, rendering, redaction and other foundational elements for our technology enabled future,” says Mary Mack, EDRM chief legal technologist and CEO. “EDRM is grateful to the Processing Guidelines team, and in particular, to Craig Ball for allowing EDRM to adapt his wonderful work and to Craig and John for their leadership and collaboration.”

“Processing is an important but not always visible part of the EDRM workflow. If processing is not done properly, the rest of the process can fail, opening you to the expense of redoing later work if not sanctions from the court,” says John Tredennick. “Our mission was to provide guidelines on the legal industry’s needs for processing both to educate newcomers and to provide guidance for those looking to create or improve processing software.”

“Processing is the “black box” between preservation/collection and review/analysis. Although the Electronic Discovery Reference Model depicts Processing, Review and Analysis as parallel paths to Production, processing is an essential prerequisite—the sole road—to Review, Analysis and Production. Any way you approach e-discovery at scale, you must process ESI before you can review or analyze it,” says Craig Ball, adding, “Despite its pivotal posture, processing garners little attention. It’s something hardly anyone thinks about until it blows up.”

Per Craig Ball, “The most durable achievement of the EDRM is its establishment of a common vernacular for e-discovery. Our hope for the EDRM Processing Guidelines is that they will do the same for evidence processing by defining the common elements of a processing effort and equipping the legal community with a common argot, a vocabulary, to facilitate communication and comprehension.”

The global EDRM community is comprised of 33% corporations, 30% law firms and 23% software and service providers in 136 countries across six continents.

For those interested in learning more or commenting in real time, EDRM is hosting the Processing Guidelines Project during eDiscovery Week, December 1.

About the EDRM Guidelines for E-Discovery Processing Project
The EDRM Guidelines for E-Discovery Processing draws from Craig Ball's seminal work, “Processing in E-Discovery, A Primer (© Craig Ball, 2019), and focuses on the processing stage of the EDRM. The Guidelines were created to help elucidate this often-overlooked stage of the EDRM and were designed to help readers better understand the basic steps involved in processing and the needs of the legal professions at this stage. In that regard, these guidelines are addressed to those who (a) use processing products, (b) support these products, (c) processing products, and (d) are new to e-discovery and want to learn about the processing stage.

“The holidays are the absolute best time to be a blessing. So many people are struggling silently — giving and helping others, help people smile. Makes them feel loved and not alone.””

— Rose Mary Tucker

CYPRESS, TX, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Rose Mary Tucker has been impacting her community by doing the Lord’s work for some time now. Ms. Tucker is a tenacious, high-powered philanthropist who is showing no signs of slowing down, and the homeless and needy of Houston are grateful for her efforts.

“Giving Tuesday” is the Tuesday after Thanksgiving in the United States, defined as a global generosity movement. This day unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Ms. Tucker’s Hoodies4Healing Foundation exemplifies giving in every aspect of the word. Hoodies4Healing is honored to serve the downtrodden, less fortunate members of society with spiritual and physical food. Every Sunday in downtown Houston, members of this dedicated ministry graciously serve hot meals. Rose Mary is on a mission, and she is laser-focused on stomping out hunger in her community. Hundreds of men, women, and children are fed and can get a free haircut to brighten their outer appearance.

An earlier report from KHOU 11 this year revealed some dire statistics for Houston and the surrounding areas; 3,055 people were living without homes. About half of them were living in shelters (1,545), and the other half (1,510) were living without shelter. “One in seven homeless people in the Houston-area counties said they're in the position they're in due to COVID-19,” according to the 2021 Coalition for the Homeless Survey. Rose Mary and her team are ready to show a little compassion this holiday season by filling the gap of food insecurity in the Lone Star state.

Hoodies4Healing Foundation is a 501(c)(3) faith-filled powerhouse organization, helping humanity heal. The Hoodies4Healing Foundation constructed a GoFundMe page to give generous donors an avenue to support without making a purchase. Donations will also buy shoes, socks, undergarments, personal care items, etc.

According to Rose Mary, “The holidays are the absolute best time to be a blessing. So many people are struggling silently — giving and helping others, help people smile. Makes them feel loved and not alone.”

Retail Stores Record Bumper Performance This Holiday Season

Physical retail stores have clocked in a strong performance over the Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend, with U.S. store traffic at -21% compared to 2019.

SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, USA, November 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — RetailNext Inc., the worldwide market leader in IoT smart store analytics for optimizing shopper experiences at brick-and-mortar retail stores, today announced its final Holiday flash update for retail performance over the Thanksgiving and Black Friday weekend, with U.S. store traffic peaking at -21% and sales at -5%.

“Initial Black Friday-Sunday store traffic in comparison to 2019 is -21%. Last year, Black Friday weekend traffic compared to 2019 was -42%, so the variance to pre-pandemic levels was halved which is great news and on track with expectations. Each day's traffic performed better than the last compared to. 2019, with initial results showing Sunday, was only -7.5% to 2019,” said Lauren Bitar, RetailNext’s Head of Insights.

"The average ticket price of an item continued to be much higher than 2019, with the preliminary AUR through Saturday being +19%. This is likely due to a mixture of supply chain challenges, pent-up demand, and inflation. That did not stop shoppers though from shopping as the average transaction value was +17% through Saturday compared to 2019, and sales only -5%. Eagerness to resume shopping, events, and trips for which to buy new outfits, and continued strong utilization of BOPIS and curbside has perpetuated the large variance between the traffic and sales trends”.

Top Auto Dealership Sales Training Company Tells Consumers How to Better Interact with Car Salespersons & Dealerships

Experts at Applied Concepts give insight to consumers on how to best shop for a car

Experts at Applied Concepts give insight to consumers on how to best shop for a car

The way cars are bought and sold has changed tremendously during the past decade and it has created an opportunity for consumers and dealerships to better work together.”

— Brett Kelly, executive vice president of Applied Concepts

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — For almost 40 years, Applied Concepts, the largest auto dealership sales and performance training company in the country, has been training sales teams at thousands of auto dealerships across the country on how to best interact with consumers. For the first time, the company is now providing insight for consumers on how to deal more effectively with auto salespersons when purchasing a vehicle.

“Many consumers buy into the stereotype of the car salesperson, and this creates an instantly adversarial and combative situation before the customer even walks into the dealership,” said Brett Kelly, executive vice president of Applied Concepts. “The way cars are bought and sold has changed tremendously during the past decade and it has created an opportunity for consumers and dealerships to better work together to yield an outcome that is a win for everyone.”

Applied Concepts offers the following tips for consumers to consider when purchasing a vehicle:

– Don’t jump to conclusions about what is online. Oftentimes, we will see an advertisement online for a particular car that is offered at a special price or comes with a special rebate or interest rate. It’s important to remember that incentives for a new car can vary tremendously by make, model, and trim. Deals can also vary by region of the country. We might see a specific car online from a dealership in Texas that is being offered with certain incentives; those incentives are not necessarily available in your part of the country. This is not in the dealer’s control but rather dictated by the manufacturer. Don’t compare apples to oranges while doing your research to avoid walking into your local dealership with unrealistic expectations.

– It is a common misperception that dealers make huge profits when selling a new car. The reality is that the average profit margin from invoice cost to MSRP is about 8%. That said, it is unrealistic to believe you can purchase a $40,000 car for $30,000, unless there is some sort of enormous factory incentive available. Also, don’t assume the dealership is getting “secret money,” or incentive payments from the manufacturer. While dealerships do receive incentive payments from manufacturers from time to time on certain vehicles, this is not true all the time for all vehicles. If you want to see if the manufacturer is currently offering any incentive payments to the dealership on the vehicle you are considering, this information is available online at several consumer sites.

– Right now, there is a worldwide inventory shortage and while many cars are selling for above MSRP, remember that dealerships are selling far fewer vehicles. To meet the cost of doing business, dealerships have their hands tied to a certain extent when it comes to pricing. If shopping for a new vehicle that is selling for a premium price, discuss other options with the dealership. Perhaps there is another make or model that would be a more reasonable choice. While the cost of new vehicles has gone up, so has what dealerships will offer for used cars. Inquire about the value of the trade-in and that may increase the available budget for a new car. Also, dealerships offer several good options for keeping your existing car until the inventory shortage is over, such as repair and maintenance plans, extended service contracts, and other ways to buy yourself some more time.

– "Remember the Golden Rule… do unto others as you would have them do unto you. There has always been a level of distrust for car dealers and while some of this was justly earned, much of it has been propagated from generation to generation and not based on anything other than a stereotype. Modern car dealers are now working harder than ever to be customer-centric and transparent. When shopping for a car, don’t think you need to defend yourself, or protect your interests, by being untruthful to the dealership about your budget, timeframe for purchase, or trade-in. Some consumers are so concerned about not being taken advantage of that they inadvertently sabotage the process and end up not getting what they want."

– The most impactful thing we can do is be realistic. It’s fine to be a tough negotiator, but don’t throw out low-ball offers that are beyond the realm of reason. "You and the dealership both want the same thing – a fair deal. You are not going to get the world’s cheapest deal and the dealership is not going to make a crazy profit from your purchase. Far better to put down the sword, take away the unnecessary hostility, and work toward the common goal of making the deal happen."

– Remember that a car dealership is a business, and they need to make a profit to stay in business. When making a purchase at a supermarket or retail store, those businesses have profit margins too – which are usually significantly higher than that of an auto dealership – and you don’t question it. Try not to treat a car salesperson as a villain because he or she is trying to make a living and earn money for their dealership.

Consumers now have more information available to them than ever before and should be able to go through the process of purchasing a car with confidence. Hostility and defensiveness do not in any way contribute toward getting a better deal and, in fact, are usually obstacles toward that end. Thanks to modern technology and the widespread availability of information, there is no reason why consumers and auto dealers should be in an adversarial relationship.

Applied Concepts provides sales and performance training and coaching for employees of auto dealerships to improve the way they connect and communicate with customers. The company has partnerships with more than 3,000 dealerships across the country and has conducted more than 2 million training and coaching sessions.

It is an honor for Crescent to be recognized. Successful building management starts with Crescent’s commitment to superior service and continues with the great team we have that supports 511 EJC.”

“It is an honor for Crescent to be recognized for excellence in managing these buildings,” said Jonathan (J.J.) Jones, Crescent property manager at 511 E. John Carpenter Freeway. “Successful building management starts with Crescent’s commitment to superior service and continues with the great team we have that supports 511 EJC.”

Dylan Sidoo and Brother Jordan Donate $10,000 To Breakfast Program

Dylan and Jordan Sidoo has followed in the footsteps of their father, David Sidoo. Find out more about one of their recent acts of service to the community.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLOMBIA, CANADA, November 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dylan and Jordan Sidoo have followed in the footsteps of their father, David Sidoo, in the Vancouver philanthropic world. One of their most recent acts of charity involves a donation of $10,000 to pay for the breakfast program connected with Gladstone Secondary. This money directly helps ensure children receive the most important meal of the day before getting started with their school day.

At any given time, roughly 10% of Gladstone Secondary’s enrollment deals with poverty that could impact the amount of food a child has at home. Most are unwilling to talk about the lack of food they have out of embarrassment. By making a breakfast program available for all, students can get the nourishment they need without feeling like they are standing out in the crowd.

Dylan Sidoo and his brother Jordan are no strangers to these types of donations due to family history. Businessman David Sidoo has taken part in Adopt-a-School campaigns in the past, and that philanthropy has rubbed off on Dylan and Jordan quite a bit. Now that the Dylan Sidoo family is getting older making charitable donations like this is much more realistic.

Students will receive a simple, filling breakfast if they opt-in. A typical morning will include toasted bagels with an assortment of toppings and fresh fruit. The school will be gifted toasters to take care of a lot of the prep work themselves, and volunteers will handle the setup process before students arrive.

Early results at other schools in the area have shown that students having difficulty attending at home have started to show up more frequently due to various reasons. Having a healthy lunch simply was not enough for how many hours students are in school each day.

According to the Dylan Sidoo LinkedIn page, this is just one of a few new charities he’s helping with as a young adult. He grew up in a very giving family, and now it’s his turn to make decisions on his own and donate towards programs he feels passionate about.

For information on the Adopt-a-School campaign, read about everything here from the Vancouver Sun Children’s Fund. It offers an opportunity for accessible applications for assistance in the future.

The Adopt-a-School campaign is a program put together by the Vancouver Sun. Schools can receive sponsorship based on the need to help out with meals for their students. Now that more people than ever understand the importance of a healthy and balanced breakfast, it’s becoming increasingly important to offer the meal to all. This is why this program caught Dylan Sidoo’s eye.

The majority of students have a chance to eat breakfast at home, but that doesn’t cover everyone. This is a way to provide without having to make a big deal about it. It’s small enough that even children who already had breakfast can still enjoy it if they are hungry. Gladstone Secondary believes that offering breakfast will help with attendance issues and overall morale.

It was great to see so many faces in the gallery and bidding was lively. We sold some wonderful historic items which did very well. After researching them it was nice to see them go off to new homes.”

CRANSTON, RI, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Two powder horns dating to the American Revolution and earlier sold for a combined $66,420 and a silver Captain Isaac Hull presentation medal from 1812 knocked down for $40,590 in Bruneau & Co. Auctioneers’ fall Historic Arms & Militaria auction held on November 20th, online and live in the Cranston gallery located at 63 Fourth Avenue.

It was just the second such auction conducted by Bruneau & Co.’s newly formed Arms & Militaria department, headed up by director Joel Bohy. “It was great to see so many faces in the gallery and the bidding was active and lively,” Mr. Bohy said. “We sold some wonderful historic items which did very well. After researching them it was nice to see them go off to new homes.”

The sale was packed with over 500 items focusing on the French & Indian War, American Revolution, Civil War, World Wars I and II and modern firearms. “It was a fantastic sale with strong results,” said Bruneau & Col president Kevin Bruneau. “I was happy that the Hull medal found a home at a New England institution where patrons can enjoy it for years to come.”

He was referring to lot 75: a circa 1812 silver medal presented by the US Congress to Lt. Alexander Scammel Wadsworth, for gallantry in the naval battle USS Constitution vs. HMS Guerriere. The obverse depicted Captain Isaac Hull, who received a gold version of the medal that is now in the collection of the Constitution Museum. The reverse depicted the naval battle.

Alexander Scammel Wadsworth was the son of Revolutionary War General Peleg Wadsworth. Born in 1790 in Portland, Maine, he became a midshipman on April 2, 1804, and a lieutenant on April 21, 1810. He went on to have a distinguished naval career and died on April 5, 1851. He was also the uncle of author Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

The sale’s top lot was a Rev War powder horn from 1775, carved near the base, “The Royal Artillery” and owned by Siege of Boston minute man Thomas Smith ($44,280). The horn was marked, “Thomas Smith, His Horne Made at Brookline Fort August XV: MDCC: LXXV 1775” and had carvings of a hunter firing his musket and other scenes.

Thomas Smith was born in Rowley, Mass., in 1748. In April 1775 he marched to Boston with Captain Thomas Mighill's company of minute men and enlisted in Colonel Samuel Gerrish's regiment. He was stationed at Sewall's Point in Brookline, the site of Brookline Fort where the horn was made. His enlistment ended and he returned home in December.

The other powder horn that piqued bidder interest was even older, a circa 1746 example identified to Moses Brewer, who was just 18 and serving in the Provincial militia around the time the horn was carved and marked. He later served as a captain in the French & Indian War, one of Rogers’ Rangers. The 9-inch-long powder horn went for $22,140.

Following are additional highlights from the auction. Internet bidding was facilitated by LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com, Bidsquare.com, bidLIVE.Bruneauandco.com and the mobile app “Bruneau & Co.” on iTunes or GooglePlay. Prices include the buyer’s premium.

A circa 1760 British pattern light infantry carbine with a .69 bore, having a walnut stock with a storekeeper's stamp on the right side of the butt, assembly marks in the ramrod channel and a "10" stamped just behind the side plate, plus a brass butt plate with a small ‘8’ stamp near the tang, 57 ½ inches long (the barrel 42 inches), hit the mark for $19,680.

Other British weapons included a circa 1742 long land musket, .78 bore, 57 ½ inches long, with a storekeeper’s stamp on the right side of the butt and a brass butt plate with rack number “A/18” ($23,370); and a pattern 1757 militia (or marine) musket, .78 bore, 58 inches long, with a lock marked "EDGE/1759" on the tail, a crown over "GR" in front of the cock, and a stamped crown and broad arrow government ownership mark ($9,225).

ROLFE V.A," ramrod pipes, a flat banana-shaped lock with a beveled edge, the breech of the barrel having a mark on the top center and "So. Carolina", made $8,610.

A circa 1864 Civil War regulation painted rope tension drum, with the original rope and nine original leather ears, plus a pair of sticks, found a new home for $7,995. The drum had red-painted upper and lower hoops, a shell painted blue with eagle, shield, sunburst, and a banner marked "REGT./U.S./ INFANTRY”/ It also had brass tacks around the vent.

A pair of late 18th or early 19th century Roquel brass barrel flintlock pistols, .60 bore, having walnut stocks with checkered handles, inlayed with wire in foliate designs, with inlays in and around the butts, and inlays behind the lower ramrod pipes, brass lock plates marked "Roquel", engraved steel cocks and a silver-plated brass trigger guard, hit $7,380.

A circa 1820-1840 U.S. militia artillery coatee having a blue plain woven light weight woolen body, red twill woven facings, collar, cuffs, and false pocket flaps, brass coat-size buttons marked "ARTILLERY" with an eagle on top of a cannon and stacked cannon balls, plus a collar lined with black velvet that had turned a brown color, rose to $5,535.

“We've got some amazing items coming in for the next Historic Arms & Militaria auction,” Mr. Bohy said. “We're looking forward to presenting them in the spring” (date yet to be determined).

Bombora Launches Insight Suite, Giving Publishers Full Picture of Website Visitors and B2B Purchase Intent

Leading provider of B2B intent data shows deep profile and intent attributes, unlocking new monetization opportunities for publishers

The graphics from Company Surge® Insights show us quickly what we need to know. We can easily identify whether or not our campaigns overindex on C-suite, enterprise or public-sector professionals.”

— Forbes SVP of Digital Operations & Strategy Alyson Williams

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Most internet traffic is anonymous, making it difficult for publishers to monetize the full value of their audience. Thanks to Bombora’s new analytics suite, Company Surge® Insights for Publishers, publishers can enhance their understanding of specialty business audiences and report granular audience performance metrics to advertisers, Bombora announced today.

Bombora built its Company Surge® data from its proprietary, privacy-compliant cooperative of thousands of business websites. This Data Co-op measures more than 20 billion monthly content-consumption events. This data has long informed marketing and sales leaders about which businesses are researching the products or services that they and their competitors sell. Now Bombora is applying that same Company Surge® technology—learning which of more than 8,000 business topics suddenly interests the employees of millions of organizations—to help publishers gain a current and much deeper understanding of their audiences’ purchase intent.

In this analytics suite, publishers can easily see—and act on—data from a multitude of visualizations that require no specialized knowledge to understand. Publishers like Forbes are using the product to help their B2B advertising partners get more value out of their onsite audiences.

“The ability to show the business makeup of our entire audience is invaluable,” said Forbes SVP of Digital Operations & Strategy Alyson Williams. “The graphics from Company Surge® Insights show us quickly what we need to know. We can easily identify whether or not our campaigns overindex on C-suite, enterprise or public-sector professionals; which categories particularly interest that audience; where the intent trends are, by company or industry; and more. This enables us to build out thoughtful, data-driven programs for our clients and reassures them of the value of working with Forbes.”

The insights also provide topic intelligence for Forbes’ B2B brand content clients: “We can share trending intent topics with our clients to inform not only their program, but also their broader content marketing efforts,” said Forbes VP of Content Partnerships Claire Robinson.

Company Surge® Insights for Publishers includes Visitor Insights, a set of visualized reports that unveil demographic and firmographic attributes as well as topics of interest for a customer’s web visitors. Market Insights reveals broad content trends across the business internet around topics, industries, accounts, and much more. These insights enable publishers to identify their unknown users; prepare thorough media kits and sales collateral; identify segments for media planning; and learn research interests for editorial, audience development, and events.

“Now publishers can unlock monetization previously inaccessible without rich audience profile buyer intent data,” said Bombora CEO Erik Matlick. “By demonstrating the full value of their audience beyond their own first-party data, publishers are able to connect the unique audience they’ve built to advertisers looking to engage specifically with them.”

Bombora is releasing these insights for publishers in the Data Co-op and globally. To learn more about Company Surge® Insights for Publishers, visit https://bombora.com/publishers.
