Medford Oregon Ranks #1 for High-Tech Diversity Measure: Surpassing Other U.S. Regions in High-Technology

Mar 26, 2015


When a small town in Southern Oregon rose to become the nation’s #1 city in terms of the high-tech diversity component for the overall ranking, Economist Minoli Ratnatunga and others at the Milken Institute took notice. With the institute’s data-driven research in hand, Ratnatunga made a late January, 2015, visit to Medford, connecting with high-tech leaders and learning more about its diversity. While there, she also announced that growth in Southern Oregon’s high-tech industry had surpassed other areas in the state and nation.

Ratnatunga co-authors the annual Best Performing Cities report for the Milken Institute, which consists of a team of economists, industry experts and scholars whose mission is to gather and use statistics in ways that will increase global prosperity.  She acknowledges that Medford’s ranking came as a surprise to some, but says that the statistics speak to the region’s business innovation and links to the global marketplace. “It’s all about brand recognition,” Ratnatunga says. With a designated #1 ranking in the High-Tech Diversity component and an overall ranking of #6, Southern Oregon is well on its way to becoming a high-tech hub for this business sector.

Ron Fox, Executive Director of SOREDI (Southern Oregon Regional Economic Development Inc.) agrees, saying that high tech businesses in Medford and other Southern Oregon cities are providing innovations to major global entities. “From this corner of the world, our high-tech companies are doing business with some of the most recognizable names in business history.”

For example, Google, 3M, United Technologies, Honeywell, Stanley Black & Decker and other household names are currently designing products using Linx Technologies wireless components, which is headquartered in the small town of Merlin. With 1,400 percent growth in two years, Medford’s Coding Zeal is a global web and mobile application development firm providing technology for companies such as, Pivotal Labs,, and SilverCloud, Inc., to name a few. Carestream in White City supplies the global medical infrastructure and has moved into the multibillion-dollar touch panel industry. And products from Rogue Valley Microdevices are being incorporated into worldwide biotech projects, including advances in cancer diagnostics and DNA analysis. Co-owner Jessica Gomez explains that her customers are global, but she works locally to help develop regional business policy. “We really can shape the direction of our regional economy, and that’s super exciting.”

According to Fox, Linx Technologies, Coding Zeal, Carestream and Rogue Valley Microdevices provide a sampling of the growing high-tech businesses relocating to Southern Oregon. He says that the region’s unique drawing card is what he terms “Business and Balance,” meaning all the necessary resources for business success, along with a landscape that offers recreation, traffic-free commuting, and a more relaxed lifestyle.  “While each owner tells a different story about why they chose to start a business in Southern Oregon, they have things in common,” Fox explains. “Each appreciates the business-friendly atmosphere. They are impressed by the high quality workforce, and they have discovered that they can be creative and productive without being stressed out.”

This ‘Business and Balance’ synergy might also help answer why Oregon saw the highest percentage of inbound moves among all U.S. states in 2013 and 2014. According to statistics gathered by United Van Lines, 66 percent of Oregon’s overall moves were inbound.  For SOREDI, these numbers indicate a trend, but the actual businesses tell the real story and have inspired SOREDI’s latest promotion called The Southern Oregon Edge.  “Here, you can have it all,” says Fox. “You can own a thriving high-tech business and get the support that’s necessary for expansion. And, you can have an office with a view and be steps away from all the beauty and recreation that Southern Oregon offers. That’s the Edge we’re talking about!”

For Linx Technologies President and CEO Tolga Latif, it goes even beyond the environment, to the availability of transportation along the I-5 corridor, and ultimately to the people of Southern Oregon. “Our team is as strong as any I’ve ever worked with in Philadelphia, New York, Chicago and Houston,” he says. “What you get in the Rogue Valley is talent, performance and loyalty.”

“Business and Balance” IS Southern Oregon’s Edge, and technology firms are flocking to this region to experience both.

March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month and, as Northwest Arkansas’ leading cancer research group, Highlands Oncology Group (HOG) supports the awareness and education of colorectal cancer in Northwest Arkansas, throughout the year and in March.

Cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer, and cancer that begins in the rectum is called rectal cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Cancer that starts in either of these organs may also be called colorectal cancer, according to the NCI. 

People can reduce the chances of developing colon cancer by regularly exercising, drinking alcohol in moderation (if at all), avoid smoking, maintaining a healthy weight and eating a variety of vegetables, fruits and whole grains, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The symptoms of colon cancer, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, include abdominal pain and tenderness in the lower abdomen, blood in the stool, diarrhea, constipation, or other changes in bowel habits, narrow stools and weight loss with no known reason.

People are encouraged to begin annual colorectal screenings by age 50, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Basic functionality to advanced lingo, no stone is left unturned in exploring the anatomy of a slot game. After that, a section explaining all the available game types’ follows, where all the modern slot machines are categorized with their differences and similarities explained.

There are many special features available to players in online slots these days.

City of Upland Surrenders under Demand for Trial by Homeowner Accused of Criminal Conduct for City’s Ordinates

Mar 20, 2015


Demanding his day in court, Mr. Fernand Bogman’s criminal complaint by the City of Upland was dismissed against him on March 17, 2015 “In the interest of justice” at the request of Prosecutor Danny Peelman.

The ironic St. Patrick’s Day dismissal came as a surprise to Mr. Bogman’s attorney ,Michael P. Vollandt, managing atorney of Upland based Law firm Offices of Marc Grossman.  Vollandt had demanded his client’s rights be vindicated by his peers at a jury trial which had been scheduled for March 27, 2015.

Over the last year the City had demanded Mr. Bogman plead to a misdemeanor crime because he did not water his lawn causing it to turn brown and did nothing in the interim to hydrate his lawn. It was the rains that came early this year causing the law to turn green not Bogman.

Bogman a staunch supporter of the Governor’s fight against the drought, complied with the State’s mandates on water conservation only to be rebuffed by the City of Upland’s water guzzling administration instructing their prosecutor to file the criminal charges against him.

Bogman’s banner “a million dollars for defense, but not one penny for tribute” held true when the City realized it would be a jury not a bureaucrat that would arbitrate his rights…

Hosannas for Fernand Bogman
