Do you have a famous neighbor? I ask this because I recently moved from Santa Maria to San Luis Opispo and I discovered that my next door neighbor is none other than the great Jim Byrne KCOY weatherman, ex-KCOY weatherman I should say. Jim is actually a real hoot and I enjoy his company a lot. What many don’t understand about Jim and his colleagues is that they are not presenters who talk about the weather, they are fully trained meteorologists who present the weather to you. Last week Jim and I went out for a few cold ones and…

Technology has changed traditional work arrangements, giving rise to telecommuting. Once considered a trend for the millennial workforce, telecommuting has now become an accepted approach to how and where people work. In the legal industry, telecommuting has opened the opportunity for paralegal assistants to increase their network and gain better employment options. Virtual paralegal assistants support attorneys and law firms in the delivery of legal services. But instead of doing these tasks in an office, virtual paralegals work in a remote location or in their homes. There are also virtual paralegal assistants who split their schedule between working on a…

Beach erosion is one of the greatest threats to wildlife, properties and infrastructure along our coastlines. Thanks to a combination of storms, flooding, strong wave action, rising sea levels and human activity our precious beaches are wearing away faster than ever before. So, what exactly are the effects of these weathering forces and how can we prevent them from damaging our coastlines even more? Another question to be answered is what is beach erosion control? And how successful can it be at tackling this threat to some of our most beautiful landscapes? What causes beach erosion? Beaches across the globe rely…

Making a movie is no easy task. Making a movie when no one knows your name is an even taller order. Budding indie filmmakers find hope, of course, in up-from-nothing success stories from years gone by. History is littered with examples of nobodies who became somebodies on the strength of a single out-of-the-park hit. That’s not the norm, to be sure. Perhaps a more realistic goal is merely getting that first foot in the door. From there, all things (might) be possible. Not sure how or where to start? Here’s what you can do, in roughly sequential order. Find a…

Whenever I have a chance to get back to Miami I love nothing more than catching up with my good friend Patrick Dwyer financial advisor and someone who I have known for over 40 years. Last week we were sat in a bar in Miami and given that we are both now parents the conversation shifted to education. We both agreed that the education system as it is does not prepare our kids properly for real life and in Patrick’s view, more must be taught in schools about finance. Of course as a financial advisor Patrick sees first hand just…

During my time in university in Hartford, New Haven, CT I was blessed to have a very good friend with whom I debated a huge number of issues. Myself and Andrew Curran were both members of the debate team and whether it was a mock lawsuit or a team effort against the professor, we always tried our very best too win the debate. I was talking with my friend via email last week and we both agreed that debating is something which is so important to people in education, and how sad it is that this is dying out. I…

Returns are a much more common occurrence for e-stores than for brick-and-mortar retail outlets; this is primarily due to the fact that a shopper can’t physically examine an item before completing the order. However, handling returns can be costly for ecommerce vendors, especially when it comes to repackaging. Below, we will discuss what ecommerce repacking is, why it matters, and how to increase the likelihood of salvaging a profit from it. What Is Ecommerce Repacking, Anyway? Repacking is the act of removing a product from one form of packaging and putting it into another. While this may sound simple at…

It’s a field which is sometimes regarded as a little cloak and dagger, but delve into the truths of private investigating myths and it’s maybe not quite as appealing as the movies depict. This is something that we are keen to look into. Trustify have claimed that there are an increasing number of misconceptions about the private investigation industry, and through today’s post we will scrutinize some of the best one in complete detail. Myth #1 – All private investigators drive fast cars If one were to review all of the cars that are driven by private investigators, you would…

Public housing in the USA is a high important area which helps hundreds of thousands of men and women to be able to afford a roof over their heads. Here in St. Louis Missouri we have a wonderful board of directors who look after the housing groups, headed up by the passionate Mr. Grefe, and with excellent team players as well such as the man we were lucky enough to speak to about this, manager and executive of the housing group Martin LaMar. Mr. LaMar does wonderful work in his job and we were lucky enough to catch up with…
