Fixes

Email Alerts - In some cases email alerts were not printing the user type in email footer.

Events Export to Google Calendar and Outlook integration - There was a bug in the handling of DST (Daylight Savings Time) for event exports, causing events that were added to Google Calendar to be 1 hour off. 

Email Newsletter - Fixed a formatting issue where for some job posts, the title and description were not being properly pulled into the email

Event Reminders - Reminders for events that had been in the trash were being erroneously sent to those who had RSVP'd

Social Publisher - Made performance enhancements to improve Social Publisher settings by reducing requests to external sites on page load.
