Beginning Weight Training

As sales director of Delcom Group, Sean Delph manages major accounts and leads sales team meetings. When he is not working, Sean Delph stays fit by weight training.

Consistent weight training can provide many benefits. In addition to counting reps for each muscle group, following these suggestions should make for a more efficient workout:

Be sure you hydrate yourself frequently, drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water every day. Not doing so can lead to feeling weak and sick. Drink water during your workout, too.

Bracket each session with a small, nutritious meal. Eat 30 to 60 minutes before and 60 minutes after. Include lean proteins – chicken, beef, fish, and turkey – plus complex carbohydrates, such as oats and rice. A huge meal is not required; take in just enough to heal and rejuvenate.

To motivate yourself, keep a record of your progress. Technology such as workout trackers can help you see the details of your exercises. You also can document your progression by taking photographs.

If you are doing cardiovascular exercises, refrain from them until after your strength workout. You can also do them at separate times during the day.


Determining Eye Dominance for Archery

Delcom Group’s senior account manager Sean Delph hires new sales representatives and facilitates the creation of marketing materials. In his leisure time, Sean Delph practices archery.

In order to get the best results in archery, you need to determine your dominant eye, also called the power or master eye. Knowing which eye dominates helps you decide whether to use a right-handed or a left-handed bow. It is better if the “handedness” of your bow can match your dominant eye.

Any of three tests can identify your dominant eye. In the Miles test, version A, extend your hands out in front of you. Turn your palms outward. Overlap your thumbs and fingers to form a small V-shaped opening.

Use this hole to find an object at least 10 feet away. Look through it first with both eyes, then shut one eye and look. Then do the same with the other eye open. You should see the object in the opening with one eye shut, and off to the side with the other shut. The eye that holds the object in the window is your dominant one.

The Miles test version B is similar. Place your hands as before and find out which eye keeps steady on the object. Keeping the object framed in the opening, draw your hands back to your face. Notice whether the hole is on the right side or left side of your face – your dominant eye is on that side.

In the Porta test, extend your arm and point at a distant object. Keep both eyes open as you point to the object with a thumb or finger. Close alternate eyes as before. The eye that stays over the object is your dominant eye.

Perot Museum of Nature and Science’s Running Wall Exhibit

Responsible for managing key enterprise accounts, Sean Delph leads Delcom Group LP as Director of Sales. Under the leadership of Sean Delph, the company played a pivotal role in helping the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, Texas, launch its running wall exhibit.

Spanning 55 feet, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science’s running wall exhibit sparks scientific curiosity through an interactive experience. Participants are invited to race virtually against such competitors as National Football League (NFL) professional athlete Felix Jones, or a World Olympic Gymnastics Academy (WOGA) Level 10 gymnast. Those looking to race animals have the chance to do so against three-dimensional, life-size versions of a cheetah and a Tyrannosaurus rex.

Delcom Group collaborated with 900lbs and BenQ America Corp on the project, which consisted of six short-throw projectors to create the image. The number of projectors used was essential for overcoming the challenge of projecting large moving images at a very close distance. It allowed for image blending and resulted in a seamless horizontal video.

New Projectors Increase Collaboration in the Classroom

As sales director at Delcom Group, LP, in Lewisville, Texas, Sean Delph has achieved standing as the company’s top sales performer for a decade. Through this work, Sean Delph has developed proficiency in selling educational technology, such as audio visual (AV) systems for classrooms. As today’s learning environments evolve to foster more interaction, solutions providers are meeting emerging classroom needs by introducing collaborative AV technologies.

In recent years, projectors have become interactive devices that provide multiuser, multi-touch-point support. Recent projector market entrants have taken interactivity a step further by supporting input using a finger instead of requiring a pen. With these technologies, teachers can group students into teams and create game-like lessons that stimulate understanding and retention of key concepts. Because of these advances, many schools are viewing interactive projectors as a potential alternative to interactive whiteboard technologies.

As far as costs, some contemporary projectors do not use traditional projector lamps, which can be expensive and difficult to replace. Although lamp-free projectors initially had prices that were cost-prohibitive to some, more affordable options from well-known manufacturers are now available.

Sean Delph has earned the top company sales ranking for 10 consecutive years in his role as director of sales with Delcom Group, LP, in Lewisville, Texas. Outside of his professional pursuits, Sean Delph participates in a wide range of outdoor activities, such as bass fishing.

Bass fishing has been a favored pastime of many Texans for half a century. With numerous lakes and reservoirs, Texas features several popular spots that bass fishers flock to each year. When looking for prime bass-fishing locations, anglers should consider the following:

Caddo Lake
A historic reservoir, Caddo Lake straddles the border of Texas and Louisiana. With average depths of approximately 10 feet, this is an excellent spot for those looking to fish in shallow water. Here, anglers can not only find largemouth and yellow bass but also a steady supply of chain pickerel.

Lake Amistad
Remotely located near Del Rio, this clear-water reservoir spans nearly 65,000 surface acres across Mexico and Texas. Throughout the years, Lake Amistad’s large bass have drawn prominent fishing competitions, such as the 2007 Bassmaster Elite Series.

Choke Canyon Reservoir
This reservoir covers more than 25,000 acres of water originating from the Frio River watershed. With depths of over 95 feet, Choke Canyon features an ample supply of largemouth and white bass. If looking for a smaller catch, anglers can also fish for bluegill and crappie at this location.

Apple Introduces iBeacon Technology

Texas-based sales executive Sean Delph works as a senior account manager and director of sales at the technology services organization Delcom Group, LP. In addition to his training and sales roles within the firm, Sean Delph also provides expertise as an Apple integration consultant and an audio visual consultant.

Business Insider recently reported that multinational corporation Apple has released iBeacon technology inside its United States stores. iBeacon is defined as an indoor positioning system that pinpoints a specific user’s location, and then uses radio transmitters to send packets of information to that user’s iBeacon-enabled device. In the current context, this allows Apple to track users as they travel around their stores, and to interact with their Apple devices.

The iBeacon service, a new feature in iOS 7, is designed to help customers make the most of the Apple store experience. iBeacon can be utilized to give customers directions to an in-store item by using their location, to inform them of nearby deals, or to send an alert when orders are ready for pickup. The technology has already attracted the attention of executives at Major League Baseball, who are looking forward to using iBeacon at American ballparks.
