    London, UK – It is no secret that in recent years, flooding throughout the United Kingdom has increased significantly. The problem has revealed numerous issues with city planning and urban construction and landscaping habits, many of which are making the flooding issues worse.

    Garden World Construction is paving the way for urbanites to make changes that can improve local neighbourhood flooding, specifically through their state of the art resin bound paving.

    Garden World Construction, landscape and paving contractors, have been in business for years, paving Surrey, Middlesex, Berkshire, South West and West London. They are proud to be known as one of the best landscape and paving contractors in the great London area, and are members of the Marshalls Register.

    The company offers landscaping and paving services for everything from patios, walk ways, garden design, fencing, turfing, walling and driveways. But their increasing speciality is their drainage solutions, which are becoming ever more in demand.

    One of Garden World Construction’s specialities to provide drainage solutions is the use of resin bound paving. Resin bound paving is constructed of naturally formed aggregates that are mixed with a polyurethane resin. As each element of the aggregate is covered in the resin, it creates a solid yet porous surface.

    It is this porous nature that makes it a perfect paving solution that aids better water drainage and thus decreases flood risks. When resin bound surfacing is laid on a properly designed base, it creates a sustainable urban drainage system (SuDS). This helps reduce flood risk and allows water to flow back into naturally occurring water courses.

    Resin paving, fortunately, can be applied to a wide variety of projects, and can now fit many budget levels. It can be used to create resin drives, patios, car parks, permeable paving, and even cycle paths, bus lanes, tree pits, swimming pool patios, and estate roads.

    Though originally a rather costly option, now that more and more contractors like Garden World Construction are offering it, it has become more affordable. It also comes in a diverse array of pleasing colours, so that it can be equally decorative and functional.

    So, for those urbanites or even commercial property owners who have been experiencing flooding issues of late and think they may need resin bound paving, Surrey, Middlesex, Berkshire, and London all have the solution in the presence of Garden World Construction. For those interested in learning more about this solution, they can investigate it further at their website: http://gardenworldconstructionltd.com//resin-bound.html.

    One of the leading Web Development for the Tire Industry is expanding its business model to help even more businesses around the world to achieve their goal.

    E-Solution Professionals, a leader in their field seeks to extend its e-commerce business by creating an exciting new division that is dedicated to AI development. The new division which is called TireLabs seeks to partner with academic and technology companies to develop an artificial intelligence capable of helping tire wholesalers to make better market decisions.

    This new development will provide a vital tool which will also save companies time and money. “By utilizing data collection strategies within its existing products an AI will be able to make real-time market decisions based on the change in inventory and pricing,” explained a spokesman for E-Solution Professionals.

    Now, the distribution of automotive products from wholesalers to retailers requires exhaustive management and data analysis by teams of people. Despite the best efforts of companies and their key employees, it is inevitable that human error creeps in as periods of high demand push people past the edge of their abilities. An AI system will work tirelessly to give recommendations and make predictions that make distribution efficient and easy.

    Using machine learning, the TireLabs AI will have the potential to see when a tire size is being searched for by customers without adequate stock levels and act accordingly. It will be able to look through tire orders and spot patterns that human observation often misses and manage stock levels accordingly. It can be difficult among the hustle and bustle of running a tire wholesale business to find the time to analyze things beyond broad trends. The new computer-driven technology can analyze customers at an individual level and work tirelessly to piece together the many puzzle pieces of this complex economic makeup and develop a cohesive plan for a wholesaler to better meet their customer’s economic needs.

    Tirelabs will be able to work seamlessly with existing E-Solution Professionals products like Tireweb, Treadsearch, and Treadmart. From the admin section of these products, administrators will be able to see the recommendations and watch the AI driven suggestions come through in real time. Having a history of development in the creation of data-driven web applications this AI project will be a natural extension of working with automotive data for human intervention. 

    Having already developed Tirelibrary, the world’s largest database of tire information, this AI system will be able to quickly develop a robust understanding of the current state of the tire industry and make decisions based on up to date information of manufacturer’s tire and automotive products.

    Tirelabs is currently looking to development partnerships with leading academics in the field to hasten the development of this system. By using leading technology, it is hoped that the work of wholesalers will easier and tire distribution will enter a new era of efficiency and consumer satisfaction.

    The ACBW Pathway to China Forum is presented in partnership with ABF Business. The event takes place during Australian China Business week 9:00 AM – 5:30 PM Wed 22nd Nov 2017, Rydges World Square Sydney.

    An important event is taking place during Australian China Business week which will help business leaders and key personnel gain the insight into how important China is for their business and how to do better business. The ACBW Pathway to China Forum has been classed as one of the most important events during the Australian China Business week as it helps business people understand the current market trends, opportunities, challenges in China and how to tap into those opportunities.

     

    The speakers at the event which will take place 9:00 AM – 5:30 PM Wed 22nd Nov 2017, at Rydges World Square Sydney, will include China experts, industry leaders, Australian and Chinese government representatives and senior executives from some of Australia’s most successful brands who have made their mark in China. These speakers have been chosen for their experience and how they can help others to achieve positive trading results with China.

    China has become a major business partner. In 2016, China became the USA largest trading partner where the trade between the two countries was worth was $590.4 billion. Australia’s AU$121 billion bilateral investment relationship with China shows how important the country is, and how vital it is for business owners and leaders to learn how they can seek out opportunities and how to do better business with China.

    “I believe many Australian interested in the China market structure their strategy on what China was like 10-15 years ago. By informing themselves through these events they save money and time and also maximise their chances of success.” Peter Christo, General Manager of LatiPay Australia

    Pathway to China Forum aims to help those that are not already trading with China to learn how to trade the right way, and for those that are trading with China to learn how to increase their opportunities. It has been described as one of the most important events during Australian China Business week.

    Self-Regulation Alert Program® Online | AOTA Approved Provider
    Internationally recognized Alert Program® authors have created a one-of-a kind online learning experience to teach self-regulation strategies to parents, educators, and therapists who support those with autism, ADD, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, developmental disabilities, behavioral/mental health, and other sensory processing or learning challenges.

    Albuquerque, New Mexico – November 16, 2017 – The Alert Program® is announcing the launch of its new online course. Participants can take the course to learn how to support self-regulation, the ability to attend and focus. More than 20,000 participants internationally having been trained in the company’s Alert Program® and this new online course dramatically increase accessibility.

    For over 30 years, the Alert Program® has been teaching parents, teachers, and therapists to be “detectives,” learning how to use simple sensory strategies placed in routines at the right time and in the right way to reset the nervous system for more optimal functioning. The Alert Program® is a practical and user-friendly approach that helps develop a “sensory diet.” Our bodies need nutritional diets to be strong and healthy, and our bodies also need sensory diets (input from seeing, hearing, touching, tasting, and smelling) in order to function optimally.

    When working with youngsters, the “How Does Your Engine Run?”® A Leader’s Guide to the Alert Program® for Self-Regulation book explains how to use an engine analogy by explaining, “If your body is like a car engine, sometimes it runs on high, sometimes it runs on low, and sometimes it runs just right.” Children and adults all have “engines” and change how alert they feel throughout the day. The Alert Program® Online Course shows step-by-step how to tame the challenges experienced by those who have sensory worlds’ gone wild. They learn how easy it is to obtain an optimal state for learning which means being alert, attentive, and focused.

    As trusted self-regulation experts, the Alert Program® creators have taken great care to make the online course informative and enjoyable. In fact, this online training is the first of its kind to combine HD videos and experiential learning.

    Reviewing traditional online presentations, the Alert Program® authors decided to raise the bar. Prior to taking the online course, participants will receive a “Bag of Brain Breaks,” including “fidget tools” that are similar to stress balls, seating options, and other self-regulation strategies. These are the same sensory supports that participants will learn about in the video modules to suggest to students in classrooms, children at home, and adults in community settings.

    The online modules include over 18 instructional videos, infused with humor, examples, and hands-on resources to apply the approach. The course encourages participation and experiential learning, and uses a mix of video, music, movement exercises, and an opportunity for a Q&A session with the program founders. Participants also gain exclusive access to a wealth of great websites, helpful articles, and practical do-it-yourself sensory items.

    “We couldn’t be more excited to launch our new online training,” says co-founder Sherry Shellenberger. “We’re offering the best of both worlds: the ‘feel’ of a live course, yet the convenience of online learning.”

    “This online course is like nothing you’ve seen before,” adds co-founder MarySue Williams, “It allows us to better meet the needs of children, families, teachers, and therapists in rural homes, schools, and agencies. I love that we can offer our Free Registration Giveaway contest through Facebook and have a Scholarship Fund for those in needs. And I’m very proud that we can continue to make such a difference worldwide in the lives of those who struggle with sensory processing and learning problems.”

    About the Alert Program® for Self-Regulation,

    This easy-to-teach, practical program supports students to learn what they can do before a spelling test or homework time to attain an optimal state of alertness for their tasks. Teachers learn what they can do after lunch when their adult nervous systems are in a low state and their students are in a high alert state after recess. Parents learn what they can do to help their child’s nervous system change from a high alert state to a more appropriate low state at bedtime.

    The Alert Program® is so valued it has become a household name among occupational therapists. In fact, the evidenced-based program is even included in college textbooks. Now, with this online course, it will become a staple for anyone who is in special or general education classrooms, as well as adults because as the authors say, “Everyone has an engine; some just go a little higher than others, and some need a little more help.” The new Alert Program® Online Course is the “help” that so many have been searching for and is now accessible world-wide in schools, homes, and community settings.

    Los Angeles, California – November 16, 2017 – Animal communication is the process of communicating with animals through the use of telepathy. Telepathic communication is communicating through the direct transmission (sending and receiving) of ideas, thoughts, feelings, and sensations. Animal communicator, Miranda Alcott now bridges the gap between people and their animal companions. She opens the door of understanding to support healing and deepen relationships.

    Miranda Alcott delightedly stated, “We are going to conduct Animal Communication workshop Level 2 on December 2-3, 2017. Animals are our loving friends, teachers, and guides. Though they don’t have the power of speech, they have so much to share with us.”

    As an experienced animal communicator, Miranda Alcott uses telepathic communication to serve as an interpreter and two-way translator between people and their animal companions. Miranda has refined her gifts and skills of telepathy, intuition, and counseling to assist people and their animals to create harmony and deeper understanding in their relationship.

    Level 2 Animal Communication, the pet communication workshops in Albuquerque  is a two-day, human-focused workshop for people who feel they may be more openly sensitive than most. Miranda Alcott, the animal communicator commented, “If people around you have told you that you are “SO sensitive,” then this class is for YOU! This advanced workshop was originally suggested by the animals themselves, who will guide us throughout the weekend.”

    She also continued by adding, “Our animals already use telepathy with us and consider it a normal method of communication. They want to encourage us, their human companions, to start using telepathy more often, attune to our inner knowing on a daily basis, and trust our intuitive connection, (our true sixth sense), which we are ALL capable of.”

    For nearly 40 years, Miranda Alcott, the pet communicator Albuquerque has devoted her life to facilitating greater understanding and communication between animals and those who care to foster a deeper connection with them. As an Animal Medical Intuitive (AMI), Miranda is a highly respected consultant, and works as a valued team member under the auspices of veterinarians nationally and around the world to provide information throughout the initial consultation, monitor ongoing treatments, and give feedback during actual procedures.

    While talking to the press, Miranda Alcott stated, “Are you ready to begin your animal communication journey?  I now offer workshops to start you in this helpful and fulfilling world of animal communication.  Whether it’s for personal interest or to augment your role as animal caregiver or lover, hearing what the animals say can make all the difference in the world. Enroll in our upcoming event on December 2-3, 2017 by signing up for just $250!”

    Coinfirm and TokenMarket announced today a collaboration to bring effective anti-money laundering to the blockchain space and to ICOs.

    Token sales have been a hot topic in the tech and finance world and yet the regulatory aspect and need of an end-to-end service have been seriously lacking for this growing fundraising activity. With $3.4bn raised this year through token sales, businesses are seeing a need to self-regulate through the adoption of AML practices. To further complicate this challenge, jurisdictions are adopting varying definitions and regulatory standards towards the process of token sales. Now, Coinfirm and TokenMarket are taking the necessary steps to stay ahead of the curve by ensuring the highest standards of regulatory compliance for token sales.

    Coinfirm, known as a leading blockchain regtech and compliance company, has been providing compliance services for both blockchain and traditional industry players around the world through the Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform. Recently, Coinfirm announced that they were introducing a streamlined and automated AML/CTF solution for Ethereum and associated Tokens and ICOs.

    As the premier platform for ICO’s, TokenMarket provides a full token sale advisory service underpinned by a firm commitment to raising standards across the entire token ecosystem. TokenMarket promotes the need for those running token sales to seek solid legal advice to understand the KYC and AML requirements and as needed, adopt a solution like Coinfirm.


    “We are currently experiencing unprecedented levels of interest in our token sale services and we are thrilled to be working with some of the highest profile blockchain companies to help scale up their businesses. With that comes a responsibility to ensure that we are advising our clients with the latest and best possible technology and information regarding regulation. Coinfirm represent some of the best in the regulatory space and we are very excited to be partnering with them and look forward to working together to safeguard the future of token sales,” Ransu Salovaara, TokenMarket CEO, said.

    Coinfirm’s CEO Pawel Kuskowski also expressed his enthusiasm for the importance of the partnership. “TokenMarket represents the standard in the token sale environment, while we represent the same for regtech and compliance for blockchain. Without two entities like us coming together, the question of regulatory compliance in commercial applications towards this revolutionary process remains quite grey and prevents it from reaching its potential in the traditional and mass markets. We’re here to help bring that security, confidence and growth to the process.” said Kuskowski.

    About Coinfirm

    Coinfirm serves as a foundation for the safe adoption and use of blockchain. A recognized leader in their field and among the most influential blockchain and regtech companies, the blockchain agnostic Coinfirm AML/CTF Platform uses proprietary algorithms and big data analysis to provide structured, actionable data that increases efficiency, reduces costs and streamlines compliance to near automation. In addition, Coinfirm develops dedicated blockchain solutions such as their data provenance platform Trudatum, currently being piloted for adoption by multiple financial institutions. Coinfirm has also recently released their AMLT Token to allow for market participants to help rate others and democratize the financial system.

    Bold Publishing‘s recent release, “Purpose Pioneers – How to Overcome Adversity, Survive Setbacks, and Thrive on Purpose,” hit Amazon.com’s best seller list on November 6, climbing all the way to Number One in the Urban & Regional Business category.

    Raleigh, NC. November 16th, 2017.

    Bold Publishing‘s recent release, “Purpose Pioneers – How to Overcome Adversity, Survive Setbacks, and Thrive on Purpose,” hit Amazon.com’s best seller list on November 6, climbing all the way to Number One in the Urban & Regional Business category.

    In response to book reaching Number One, Bold Publishing, Bolaji Oyejide, said, “Hitting the Best Seller list is something we are excited to have achieved. This is an important project for us.  We’ve created a powerful resource for purpose-driven people who’ve been striving to make a positive impact in the world, but have been stopped in their tracks by adversity and setbacks.”

    Describing the unique concept behind the book, Oyejide explained, “This wasn’t a topic we could tackle on our own, so we reached out to some of the top Purpose-driven entrepreneurs and speakers across the nation, for insight into how they overcame life-threatening limitations, academic failure, physical shortcomings, anxiety, fatherlessness, and even lack of purpose.”

    Oyejide expressed appreciation for the book’s contributors, saying, “We are extremely fortunate to have the caliber of Purpose-Driven Entrepreneurs and Speakers who gave their time to be interviewed for this project. Each and every one of them is a true advocate and educator.

    Each of the book’s co-authors has overcome monumental adversity and found their way back to a purpose-driven life.

    Oyejide further stated, “To have Amazon put this book at the top of their Best Seller list in the Urban & Regional Business category is an incredible achievement and puts a spotlight on the appreciation and recognition they deserve.”

    With the recent news controversy around the rise in narcissism, and the sharp decline in empathy in the media, Purpose Pioneers subject matter is a hot topic and a must-read for anyone who wants to make a positive impact on the world.  

    These purpose-driven leaders speak share heart-wrenching stories of overcoming life-threatening ailments, physical disabilities, crippling anxiety, tragic loss of childhood siblings, growing up fatherless, and more.  The methods by which they are each able to overcome immense adversity, survive setbacks, and find their life purpose along the way, is both inspiring and instructive.

    Purpose Pioneers features conversations with:
    Ricky Venters – CEO of Ricky Venters Enterprise, LLC.

    Jose Angel Contreras – Host, Decoding Millennials podcast

    Award Winning Libertyville Restaurant & Caterer, Fodrak’s Celebrates 30 Years serving Northern Illinois Delicious Gyros, Ribs and More On December 7, 2017.

    On December 7, 2017, Fodrak’s Great Gyros & Ribs will celebrate 30 years under the ownership of proprietor and community icon Jim Lappas.

    To celebrate this major milestone few restaurants ever see, Jim is hosting a celebration at the restaurant on Thursday December 7, 2017 marking the day it all started. With specials all day for Fodrak’s loyal customers, many have said they wouldn’t miss it for the world.

    Jimmy, as he is affectionately called by many long time patrons, is thrilled to be reaching this milestone many businesses, let alone restaurants, ever see. When asked, “How did that happen?”, Lappas replied, “A lot of hard work and constant attention to quality and value have allowed us to develop a good reputation and loyal customers.”

    Jim continues, “When I first got started on December 7, 1987, my goal was to be a step above a fast-food restaurant. I believe our success is due to a lot of hard work, 80-90 hour weeks, and a constant attention to quality and value for our customers. It’s allowed us to develop a good reputation in the community and loyal customers, not only here in Libertyville, but in many of the surrounding communities including Vernon Hills, Mundelein, Gurnee and Grayslake.”

     

    Fodrak’s has always been at 327 South Milwaukee. When Jim took it over he kept the name. Jim goes on to say, “At that time, the restaurant focused on hot dogs and Italian beef. Gyros was becoming better known in the suburbs. I added that and we were one of the few places serving it.” The rest is history. Jim’s gyros has become a signature menu item and has won numerous media readership awards for Best Gyros in Lake County, from Where the Locals Eat, the Pioneer Press and The Daily Herald.

    Jim Lappas also believes in Customer Rewards. One is his ongoing reward programs is his Facebook Fan of the Day, where loyal customers on Facebook are selected randomly each week day to receive a complimentary meal. He has also launched his VIP program where customers sign up right at the register on an tablet, receive a complimentary drink right away and ongoing specials and rewards via email and text messages.

    Fodrak’s, located at 327 S. Milwaukee Avenue, has been serving Libertyville and the Northern Illinois suburbs with its award-wining gyros, ribs, hand cut fries, and homemade milk shakes now for 30 years as well as providing quality catering to local businesses, community events, and family parties. Known as the “Best Gyros In Lake County”, due to Fodrak’s earning that award over a dozen times over the years, his customers couldn’t agree more!  If you’re in the vicinity, stop in and say hi to Jimmy and congratulate him on this 30 years of success.

    Cashaa, the world’s first blockchain based online banking platform has announced its partnership with Bubblo, an AI-powered app to find Top 5 hangout venues in a specific region.


    A simplified user experience in a legally compliant way

    Cashaa, a next generation online banking for billions, seeks to leverage the blockchain industry with its pioneering solution to connect the West and East along with financial inclusion, hence creating a fair value and a win-win solution for both worlds.

    Cashaa is building a powerful wallet with a spectrum of digital financial services to enable its community to deposit, spend, lend, borrow & transfer money anywhere in the world to any card. Thus, creating liquidity for cryptocurrencies and enabling them to be transferred worldwide in a fast, secure and authorised manner.

    Cashaa has launched its Token Generation Event (TGE), with CAS token built as an EIP-20 (former ERC-20) token on the Ethereum blockchain. CAS are being sold at $0.10 each in a crowd sale that is open now until 5 December. Adding to its spree of partnerships recently, Cashaa announces its 4th strategic partnership with Bubblo as a cross marketing platform.

    Paving a way to push cryptocurrencies into the mainstream

    Bubblo, the world’s first decentralized Food, Beverage, and Retail review and payment platform ecosystem to decentralize the reviews that form their recommendation engine. Bubblo harnesses the power of IBM’s Watson supercomputer to deliver AI, allowing users to filter venues by price, type, cuisine etc. Live videos and photos available within BubbloApp give visitors a feel of the venue before they actually go there.

    Recently Bubblo is seeking to ‘gamify’ its review system, decentralising the BubbloApp with blockchain technology, thus incentivising its users who check-in at places and receive blockchain rewards for submitting reviews. Users can pay for their food and drinks with CAS tokens and in return Restaurants, Bars and Clubs can pay for their supplies to Food & Beverage companies, who also can pay for advertising on Bubblo thus completing this ecosystem.  

    Now, Bubblo has taken a strategic blockchain initiative with Cashaa, to integrate blockchain technology and utilise CAS in its app, enabling users to transact directly through the app. As Bubblo ventures into cryptocurrencies to incentivize reviews, this ground-breaking collaboration with Cashaa will power an efficient cross-marketing strategy.

    The gluten free market will reach $6.2 billion by 2018, according to a report from MarketsandMarkets.  This is great news for gluten free food producers; however, the problem will become product differentiation as competition grows.  Those with solid Gluten Free Award performance will have the ability to market their earlier successes and establish their products as “Best in Class”. 

    Congratulations to all of this year’s Gluten Free Award Winners. 

    About the Gluten Free Awards Program

    Josh Schieffer and Jayme Schieffer created the Gluten-Free Awards nine years ago, after they found families like them who couldn’t afford to experiment with expensive gluten free products. They needed to quickly find products their family would actually enjoy without the financial burden.  It was bad enough to have a Celiac Disease diagnosis but their grocery bill doubled and some of their family favorites disappeared instantly.

    They didn’t ask for permission, they just started with a one-page website and a few hundred gluten-free people who had struggled along with them.  Fast forward a few years and that one-page website has turned into an published gluten free buyers guide that is distributed to thousands of people including grocery store buyers and category managers.

    Each year they give back to the community and focus on their mission by distributing as many free copies of the guide as possible during a short time each year.  The number of free copies distributed is a fundamental method in which they measure their success.

    “We are amazed and blessed that the Gluten Free Awards Program is now going into its ninth consecutive year while facilitating a collective and forceful voice from and for the community.  Personally, I don’t always agree with the results.  Each year some of our personal favorites don’t make the nominations.  However, we are passionate about the power of the collective results that are generated.  The majority votes rule and that is how the gluten free awards are determined.”  Josh Schieffer, Co-Creator.

    This year there are 60 categories and some of the results are going to literally shock the gluten free community.  Josh and Jayme have agreed to a 90-day exclusive deal with Amazon that gives them the opportunity to leverage Amazon’s size and distribution channels.

    How The Gluten Free Awards and Buyers Guide works in 5 simple steps.

    Step 1:  Brands register their product(s) throughout the first part of the year.

    Step 2:  In Summer, thousands of people vote for their favorite bloggers.

    Step 3:  The twenty most influential bloggers are then given an opportunity to make nominations.

    Step 4:  In Fall all the nominations are set and open for public voting.

    Step 5:  In December the results are published in the Annual Gluten Free Buyers Guide.

    FoxGuard Solutions Selects NVIDIA Quadro and Bohemia Interactive Simulations to design and build a platform of products for OEM customers.

    CHRISTIANSBURG, VA – 11/17/2017 — FoxGuard Solutions, Inc. today announced the release of the Simitar brand family of computers.  “As part of our design process, we reached out to NVIDIA and Bohemia Interactive Simulations  to select the best components for our customers’ simulation and training application,” said Nasri Salamoun, Director of Engineering.  Simitar FORCE is a professional workstation product designed to maximize the performance of simulation software such as Bohemia Interactive Simulation’s (BISim) training applications, VBS3 and VBS Blue IG. 

    BISim is utilizing the Simitar FORCE in their technology development and demo room at their North American headquarters.  “Foxguard is providing the best of breed turn-key image generation hardware platform that is designed specifically for BISim’s VBS Blue IG a whole earth planetary image generation technology.  The combined solution of VBS Blue and the FORCE provides users with a turn-key IG hardware and software combination that performs optimally,” Cory Kumm, BISim’s Vice President Corporate Development.

    Along with the release of the professional workstation line of products, FoxGuard also announced the release of Simitar FLEX.  “Simitar FLEX is a rack-mount computer designed for customers that value form factor reduction.  The FLEX is available with one or two NVIDIA Quadro GPUs  in a short depth, 2U format.  Simitar FLEX has the option of two additional PCI expansion ports for customers who only want one GPU, ” said Jonas Baranauskas, Product Manager for the Simitar family.

    Increased display resolution for training and simulation introduces numerous challenges with respect to traditional visual system architectures and the required number of image generator (IG) computers. As resolution increases, the frame rate must also increase to maintain dynamic resolution. With both higher resolution and faster frame rates, there is a significant increase on the GPU resources, and therefore the number of GPUs required to drive a large-scale multi-display system. 

    “By offering 2U systems with two NVIDIA Quadro GPUs, Foxguard delivers the necessary GPU density to the training and simulation industry,” said Sandeep Gupte, Director of Product Marketing, Professional Visualization,  NVIDIA.

    Dover DE – Automaxx Dover, one of the leading and well established used car lots in Delaware has today published an article that warns people how to spot the signs of a car with flood damage when considering the purchase of a used car.

    With all of the recent flooding issues that have occurred in Delaware and other states across the country, some unscrupulous dealers are trying to sell cars that have suffered significant flood damage. To the unsuspecting car buyer, this could result in them innocently buying a vehicle which may never run properly, and could potentially cost a considerable sum of money to repair.

    As with all good advice, the information is self-explanatory once you know precisely what to look for, and Automaxx Dover a used automobile dealer who has built their business on honesty and integrity is determined to notify and warn as many potential car buyers as possible about the issue. The advice is simply to smell the vehicle for any signs of mold or mildew and just as importantly check the state of the interior carpets. When buying a used automobile, the carpet should show some signs of wear and tear, so if it appears to be brand new, this could be another warning sign that flood damage has occurred, and the carpet has had to be replaced.

    “At Automaxx Dover we are very diligent about checking the condition of any potential used automobile we purchase for resale, be it from an auction or individual seller, said Christa Deblasi, the owner of Automaxx Dover. “We use a few separate processes, to ensure that a flood-damaged vehicle never enters our inventory.  Full disclosure is important; any used car buyer should expect that standard to be met when buying from a reputable used car dealer.”

    Automaxx Dover is a used car dealer in Dover, Delaware. They are a family owned and operated business who have been in the industry for over twenty years. They have established a reputation for selling high-quality vehicles and this can be verified by their average review rating of 4.5 on Google and Yelp. They hand pick every car with the intention of only selling vehicles that should last a minimum of 4-5 years and provide 60,000 to 80,000 miles of major trouble-free driving.

    Recently icnbuys zen garden reached out to me and asked if I would like to try one of their desktop zen gardens. This was an easy “YES!” on my part. I have been fascinated with zen gardens since I was a little girl. Typically a zen garden is comprised of carefully arranged dry landscape (sand, rocks, gravel or sand) in an effort to stimulate calm meditation. To learn more about the history of zen gardens read this and this.

    ICNbuys Launch Zen Gardens for the Coming Christmas 

    ^^^All of the components were nicely packaged and easy to set up.

    In the absence of backyard space to create my very own zen garden, a mini tabletop garden is the next best thing. We have had a lot of fun as a family styling this at home. My daughter Sophie has proclaimed that the garden makes her feel peaceful and now it lives in her room :).

    ICNbuys Launch Zen Gardens for the Coming Christmas

    Once I got everything out of the box, I laid out all of the supplies. The sand was double bagged and is super fine. Next, I poured out the sand into the tray to smooth and then rake.

    Once everything was raked it was time to set the pieces in whatever manner felt most calming and inspiring.

    ICNbuys Launch Zen Gardens for the Coming Christmas

    ^^^So pretty!

    ICNbuys Launch Zen Gardens for the Coming Christmas

    ICNbuys Launch Zen Gardens for the Coming Christmas

    That’s it! So simple and so relaxing.

    If you are looking to create a peaceful corner in your home (whether that is a house, apartment, dorm room, bedroom, RV) think about getting a tabletop zen garden. We are all stressed out ALL the time, right? We are always scheduling, texting, calling, emailing, running, driving all over the place all the time every day FULL STOP. Right?! So why not take a few minutes and rake a little white sand, place a bridge or a plant and just let your mind wander. This little zen garden had such a surprising effect on my four kids! They calmed down immediately, put away their phones and papers and just moved pieces around the raked sand. Honestly, it chilled each of them out. For that reason ALONE I am a zen garden convert :).

    I found the folks at icnbuys zen garden really easy to communicate and work with. Shipping was prompt and the packaging for all of these items was pretty impressive. Take a look at their Amazon page https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01II9PHI4 to see the 24 different styles of zen gardens they offer. There is something for everyone! Thank you ICNbuys Zen Garden for introducing me to tabletop zen gardens!

    Cheadle, Cheshire—Learning to drive is an essential part of maintaining a busy lifestyle. When commuting to school or work, using public transit can be time-consuming, and using car services can be a drain on the finances. That’s why having a personal car is the ideal scenario for most people in an urban area. However, driving on the road starts with passing a driving test to ensure that a potential driver is ready, and the test is not something many young drivers are prepared for. Freeway Driving School is a company that is bringing quality driving instruction to the Manchester area. Freeway Driving strives to give their students a friendly and comfortable environment and individualised approaches that arewell suited for driving instruction.

    The importance of the driving test cannot be overemphasized. Not only is it necessary to pass in order to acquire the privilege of a license, but it ensures that drivers are adequately informed and prepared to handle the risks of driving on the road. However, according to recent statistics, more than 50% of people fail their driving test. Even more worrisome is that many driving schools in the area don’t understand why so many people fail. Places like Freeway Driving School are seeking to change that discrepancy and working to understand where many drivers are falling short when it comes to their driving tests. Freeway Driving uses this knowledge to better prepare their students for the road.

    Their consideration for their student drivers has garnered Freeway Driving school high praises from past students, who also recommend the company’s driving lessons in Manchester to their friends and family. Freeway only hires experienced driving instructors. They determine what their student drivers need and happily deliver on whatever that is,whether it be fostering a stress-free environment for nervous drivers who need more time to get comfortable behind the wheel, or increasing the pace for the fast learners.

    What separates Freeway from other driving schools in Manchester is their ability to mould their driving instruction to each individual student. While other driving instructors in Manchester treat all their students the same, the instructors with Freeway understand that every student is different and customise their instruction to fit the individual.

    With their competitively priced services, customised lessons, and friendly instructors, Freeway Driving school is making their school a favourite for local drivers. Many of their students rave about their services. Most importantly, their students pass their driving tests thanks to this company. Freeway Driving School is shaping itself up to be one of the top locations for driving lessons in Manchester.

    Wiltshire, UK—On average,the number of people who fail their driver’s test in the UK each year is 50%. The daunting statistic also entails that many people each year are spending more than is necessary on driving tests, considering the average cost for a test figures around 300 pounds. The cost of the test and the desire to pass in order to acquire the privileges of a license are why many student drivers seek the services of a driving school. A surprising recent trend is showing that more female student drivers are seeking instruction in all-girl driving schools from place such as The Driving Genie.

    Learning to drive can either be a stressful or a great experience, and much of that experience depends on the style and method of instruction. If a family friend is providing the instruction, then there is a sense of familiarity and comfort, but also the risk that the student will not learn effectively. On the other hand,if it’s a professional with years of experience providing the instruction, then the student knows they’re in safe hands. The desire to find the right balance between receiving lessons in a comfortable setting while also acquiring the most effective instruction to pass the driving test on the first try is why more female student drivers are seeking all-girls driving programs.

    Female driving schools make up about 15% to 20% of driving schools in the Swindon area, but many of these schools pose problems for first-time student drivers because they are difficult to get into. The Driving Genie is seeking to change that by making their school more accessible for student drivers. The Driving Genie is a family-run driving school that offers driving lessons in Swindon. They have lessons that are affordable and promise to help their students pass their test on the first try. While they offer general driving instruction, they also have a specialised female driving school in Swindon.Students are encouraged to request a female driving instructor in Swindon to better suit their comfort and skill levels. Compared to other driving instruction programs, The Driving Genie program only asks a few questions to get to know their students level of expertise and create a driving plan from that.

    With the rise in students seeking all-girls driving lessons in Swindon, it is clear that the services provided by schools such as The Driving Genie will prove to be invaluable. With their affordable pricing, and highly-trained instructors, The Driving Genie provides a way for those who want to drive and acquire the skills to pass their driving test to navigate a clear path to success.

    Established Canberra builders, Rosin Bros [Rosin Brothers], have taken out the prestigious Custom Built Home of the Year award at the recent HIA-CSR ACT & Southern NSW Housing Awards, held at the National Convention Centre in Canberra.

    The private single-storey house in Yarralumla, which was designed in collaboration with award-winning local architectural firm DNA Architects and interior designer Melinda Boag,won best Custom Built Home in the $700-$900k category and the major category of Custom Built Home of the Year.

    The award is one of many won byRosin Brosfor their building work in the Canberra region over the past 20 years. Robert Rosin, Director of Rosin Bros, says, “We’re incredibly humbled to be recognised for the work we do, and specifically this beautiful Yarralumla home, which we know will bring comfort and enjoyment to its owners for decades to come.”

    Glen Dowse, Principal of DNA Architects, says, “We were very excited to have worked on this property with Rosin Bros. They’re very easy to work with, and when the project was finished and we went through the house we were amazed by the level of detail, the quality of finish, and how liveable it is. Delivery was truly first rate.”

    The project began when Rosin Bros was approached by the home owners,who had decided to downsize from their current property and build a custom home in Canberra’s inner south.

    “They wanted single level living, so it was fortuitous that this block became available in Yarralumla,” says Robert. “It’s situated on the high side of the street, on a large flat block, with a northern orientation to the side and no large regulated trees that may have caused planning or shade issues.”

    Demolition and asbestos removal of the tired old home began in 2015, and the build was completed in early 2016.

    The new house features 3 bedrooms plus study, two living areas, a covered outdoor area, high ceilings, high windows in the main living area to bring in the northern sun, double lock up garage with internal access, durable building materials and a high energy efficiency rating.

    “The client was seeking a home that combined comfort, natural light, accessibility and classic finishes,” says Robert. “Open plan living, heated floors in the bathrooms, timber flooring throughout, and products from proven suppliers such as Miele and Hansgrohe all came together to create a beautiful, sustainable and modern home that will absolutely stand the test of time.”

    Sydney, Australia – Amazon’s imminent arrival in Australia has been the cause of a great deal of discussion over recent months as to the effect the giant company will have on Australian retailers. The highly automated online retail operation is moving in to a location just outside Melbourne with plans already in the works to take on up to 5 more locations throughout the country.  Reactions have been mixed, depending on their source, but there’s unquestionably a sense of fear and foreboding in the air.

    And with good reason. Amazon has become the world’s biggest retailer, even leaving Walmart in the dust back in 2015. (It’s now twice as large as Walmart.)  Australia’s biggest retailers: Wesfarmers, Woolworths, JB Hi Fi, Myer and Super Cheap have a combined value of about $80 billion. Amazon is worth $US460 billion ($630 billion), and investors are still confidently buying up its stock at $1,000 a share.  One recent study shows that Amazon accounted for the majority (53%) of the growth in U.S. e-commerce sales in 2016, while U.S. department store profits have plummeted.

    Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/embed/os1COWQdURg


    Peter Grant of CoachAMZ.com has been a part of the Amazon empire since 2013. He began selling on Amazon in New York, but has since moved back to Australia where he operates his businesses selling through Amazon U.S.A., U.K. and Canada. In his opinion, small retailer have nothing to fear and it’s actually a massive opportunity for Mum and Dad businesses.

    “Amazon allows the small guys to compete with big business through ‘Fulfilment by Amazon’,” Peter explains. “In other words, Amazon will stock small businesses products, list them on Amazon and send them to customers. It’s a simple and highly effective. And it can transform your small business in a matter of weeks.”

    According to Peter, Amazon Prime provides free delivery for a small $99 annual fee: “Same day shipping means that a customer can order a toothbrush for $4.99 at breakfast time and have it arrive that afternoon with no shipping fee. I strongly believe that the arrival of Amazon will be a blessing in disguise. It’s really going to level the playing field and help small businesses.”

    About CoachAMZ

    Peter Grant began selling on Amazon 4 years ago when he moved to New York to live and caught the Amazon bug. Since then he’s expanded to selling to the U.S.A., U.K. and Canada to an audience of over 500 million customers.  His goal is to help Australian entrepreneurs and small businesses learn how to sell on Amazon and compete against the big retailers.

    In line with the 30×30 Dubai Fitness Challenge, which is based on a 30-minute daily exercise for the entire Dubai public, to maintain fitness and reduce obesity in Dubai ,UAE as well as the rest of the region. Obalon launched the new generation of weight loss balloons through a press conference attended by a large number of media, doctors, and social media influencers the Boulevard Hotel in downtown Dubai.

    The Obalon Balloon System approved by the US Food and Drug Administration and the UAE Health Authority is the latest and most advanced medical technology to help prevent weight loss without surgery. Patients swallow three balloons over a period of six months in that then swell into the stomach to occupy space and force patients to eat less.

    Obalon is used to help lose excess weight in adults with BMIs between 27 and 35 who fail to lose weight through diet or exercise alone, with this balloon capsule the patient will not need to perform any operations or binoculars during the procedure, the patient only needs to Swallow a capsule attached to a thin tube, and once it settles in the stomach it inflates with light nitrogen gas to take room in the stomach.

    The conference, organized by Suhail Med and a group of obesity specialists, highlighted the new technology of Obalon that eliminates excess weight and the importance of non-surgical treatment as an innovative solution for people who are obese and who have failed to follow a healthy diet “We need innovative solutions to address obesity, with the importance of healthy living, healthy food, lifestyle and walking,” said Mr. Suhail Al Mazrouei, Director of Suhail Med.

    ‪‪Professor Jim Pons, medical director of obesity surgery at the Chi Memorial Hospital in the United States, warned of high rates of overweight and obesity in the United Arab Emirates, which ranks fourth in the world in the prevalence of obesity and the second in the world in the proportion of people with diabetes, according to the Federation. And the spread of fast food shops, which contributed to the spread of obesity among members of society, in addition to the absence of awareness programs to raise awareness and reduce weight gain.

    Dr. Pons, who was also the former president of the American Society of Metabolic and Obstetric Surgery, said that the modern Obalon system in many developed countries is fully safe and effective. Clinical studies have shown that patients using this technique have lost twice as much. Weight lost by diet and exercise alone. He added: “There is a high demand from patients to use this technique, especially that weight loss is a difficult challenge faced by the patient of obesity, and many of the patients resorted to liposuction or stomach quantification, which have dangerous side effects.

    The Obalon technology does not work alone, but it requires a diet program and a sports program to reach the ideal weight,” he said. “The technology depends on the diet change, which is followed by the doctor’s instructions. The function of this technique helps to the patient feel full quickly, reduces the amount of eating, and the help patient avoid food and beverages with high-calorie such as sweets and soft drinks.

    Dr. Ahmed Ali a representative of Suhail Med also reiterated that Obalon does not work alone. It requires a diet and a sports program to reach the ideal weight. The technology depends on changing the type of food the person eats diet based on the instructions given by the doctor. He added that there is a new mobile application called “Virtual Heath Partners” that allows doctors, dietitians and specialties to follow up on the patients status.

    This application provides doctors information both in Arabic and in English.

    A leading HR and recruiting firm in Rochester is pleased to announce they have expanded their new office in St. Luis, MO. ER Select LLC, a division of ER Associates has expanded their office to provide better support for the continued business growth in St. Louis.

    St. Louis, MO which major industries include Bio-science, Heath care, and Education is among the top cities with business growth and is ranked 18th of the top 20 metro areas for small business job growth. The growth continues to rise and business experts have said St. Louis will continue to experience a positive future due to the investment being ploughed into the area.

    ER Associates only opened their office in St. Louis a few months ago and already due to their increased clients and professional services, have expanded.

Ioele, chief executive officer, ER Associates. “We couldn’t be more thrilled that our contributions to our clients’ success employing local talent have resulted in our rapid growth, and we’re proud to support the local businesses and candidates that have made this possible.”

    The opportunity for the original expansion to the St. Louis (creating the third location for ER Select) began due to an initiative from key clients looking to fulfill a 250-job order in the region and has allowed the firm to gain a foothold for further business development. The new recruiting and support initiatives will not only drive growth for the company but further expand the burgeoning job market in the St. Louis region.

    Locally owned and operated tow company, Pablo’s Auto Repair & Towing, has announced the addition of a new car lockout service to round out its full line of towing and roadside assistance services.

    Marketing manager Tony Kelly says the company’s latest offering has been driven by client demand and, now that the team has been fully trained and gained experience, the service is ready to launch. “In everything we do we want to ensure that we are trained, equipped and ready to provide the best service we can to clients. We are ready now and proud to offer this new service to clients.”

    Pablo’s Auto Repair & Towing’s new services include key replacement and duplication, transponder chip key cutting, broken key extraction, open trunk solutions and more. As with all of the company’s other services, the new locksmith service is available 24/7 and backed by a 30-minute response time. Kelly says the company understands that a car lockout can be as frustrating and inconvenient as a situation requiring a tow or roadside assist so the company wanted to be sure that capability was in place.

    Customers who have used Pablo’s Auto Repair & Towing have already benefitted, he says, from his team’s expertise in fast response towing, after accident and long-distance towing. “We’ve also helped with private property towing and have provided customers with dolly and flatbed services as required.”

    Unlike other towing companies who provide roadside assist as a small part of their business, Kelly says his team is trained to handle minor auto repairs on all makes and models. “We have it right in our name.”

    Roadside assistance services include flat tire, out of gas, and a range of battery services. As with its other offerings, Kelly says they ensured staff were trained across a variety of vehicle makes and models before this service was launched. “Some of the newer vehicles are finicky and can be tricky to work on, even when it’s a ‘simple’ battery issue. We ensured our team were equipped and trained to handle any vehicle they might encounter before we brought this service to market.”

    Being a local company, he says quality service and responsiveness are key. That means that dispatch knows the area and how to get to a customer service fast, that technicians are well trained, and that staff are always on hand to answer questions or inquiries. “We want to ensure from first contact until after they are back on the road, customers look at their experience with us as a positive.”

    Pablo’s Auto Repair & Towing is committed to the community in which they live. Beyond its towing services, roadside assist and car lockout, the company’s website also provides tips and information to help customers navigate things such as buying a used car and forward-looking peeks at the world of intelligent cars. “It’s all about serving our customers now and helping educate them about issues that could impact their driving needs down the road.”

    People are doing more business online than ever before. Still, when it comes to seniors and retirement planning, face-to-face interaction is an important part of the equation and the personal touch can make all the difference.

    CLARKS SUMMIT, PA – 11/17/2017 — Online business is booming and nowhere is this more apparent than in the retirement planning and insurance worlds. “Robo advisors”—computer programs whose scope includes portfolio planning, asset allocation, and risk tolerance assessment, among other tools—are the next big thing in the finance world and standalone tools like online investment calculators are seeing increased use. Still, when it comes to doing business with the baby boomer generation and, particularly delicate financial business, the face-to-face interaction prevails.

    “People still like the personal touch, especially when it comes to their money. They want to see you, touch you, talk to you and know that you’re real and you have their best interest at heart,” says Phil Goldstein, a principal of 1st Financial Investments located in Clarks Summit, PA. The firm, which Goldstein runs with his son Heath and his partner Michael Dillon, specializes in educational workshops for seniors that span a variety of topics from Retirement planning and Social Security Maximization to Long Term Care planning. This unique approach allows them to educate more people with more information at one time. He encourages other financial advisors to take this or a similar approach to have the opportunity to work with more interested people. “Workshops in general are a great idea because you can get your message out and potentially help more people meet their goals,” Goldstein notes.

    In-person marketing efforts also allow financial advisors to keep their material fresh and take new and developing information into account as they assist their clients in making important financial and life decisions. New Department of Labor regulations, for example, as well as changes in the rules governing insurance and Medicare can make a big difference in the way people save for retirement and elderhood. Goldstein cites, for instance, a new regulation allowing individuals to withdraw tax-free from newer life insurance policies to cover long-term care expenses, should they have the need for Long-term care. For some individuals, this may mean they no longer need separate long-term care insurance, which may eliminate one premium from their already stretched budget.

    With so many moving parts to the retirement planning equation—insurance, investment, saving, and distribution, among them—sound financial advice is key. What are some of those tidbits of advice? “Managing risk is really important,” Goldstein warns. “It’s best to go with programs that protect the principal to the extent possible, while still providing a reasonable return on the clients’ investment. Some even provide insurance on the principal which makes it virtually impossible to lose money.”  When it comes to the stock market the rule is simple: what goes up must come down. Fluctuations are a given, nothing stays up or down forever so insulating principal to the extent possible is a very smart way of planning for the worst.

    Holistic advice can also make a positive difference to retirement planning precisely because of all the various considerations. Goldstein notes that in the process of retirement planning people need tax advice, insurance advice, advice about investments, and social security advice, among others. Having to go to a CPA, an insurance agent, a broker, and a social security specialist separately would undoubtedly cost more in time and money than getting all of these services and information from the same firm. “Time truly is money in this case,” Goldstein quips, “And not only does it save those things, but you really get better advice from a team working together so that they can take all of your individual needs and preferences into account across the full spectrum,” he adds.

    While robo advisors and other computer-based tools can be incredibly useful, they can’t replace the human touch and a recent Forbes magazine article[1] noted that a combination of the two—technology and good, old-fashioned human interaction—is most people’s preference. Whichever route one chooses, the key is advice, planning, and taking actions that have the desired outcome: providing a comfortable cushion that will sustain them through retirement. “At the end of the day, people don’t want to outlive their money, so the goal is to have enough to last” says Goldstein. “However they get to their goal, the point is to get there! The first step can be as simple as attending an educational workshop to learn what they need to know and to begin their journey.”

    Los Angeles, CA – November 17, 2017 — Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview featuring ASI CEO and Co-Founder, Robert Alves and Company Ambassador, Raphael Badagliacca. Now in its 26th year, ASI is the global leader in delivering cloud based software solutions for member and donor based organizations.

    According to Alves, “There are more than a few reasons why we continue to be the leading provider of cloud based software solutions to the Non-Profit world after more than 25 years in business. Some of these reasons are technical and some are commercial but what is most important is we have great people to start with and we have always put our clients, business partners and our employees first. That applies to the way we treat people directly as well as to the quality of products and services we supply to them.”

    Since their inception in 1991, ASI has helped thousands of non-profits grow revenue, reduce expenses and improve performance through best practices, ongoing client advice, and proven solutions. The company is responsible for the development of iMIS, the world’s number one member and donor engagement management system.

    iMIS fuses database management and web publishing in a single cloud-based engagement management system (EMS)™ — eliminating data silos, improving reporting, and enabling continuous performance improvement.

    As technology continues to rapidly evolve, ASI embraces the frenetic pace;  “We have created a company that can provide leadership in a fast-changing world to help our clients meet technology challenges,” says Alves. “Change is what challenges organizations of all kinds.  We embrace change and then provide advanced solutions to our clients who live in a fast-changing world.”

    Badagliacca adds, “Our clients tell us they are overwhelmed with the cost and complexity of changing technology.  So we strive to make their experience simpler and less costly.  One of the biggest cost savings we can bring to clients is to show them how to manage a member/donor database and a web site all within our iMIS software.”

    “ASI is truly transforming the nonprofit world through their innovative and advanced solutions,” says JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®. “we are proud to feature them on the show.”

    Los Angeles, CA – November 17, 2017 — CPO and Manifesting Expert, Carolin Hauser-Carson will be featured on the award-winning, global TV show, Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®. The segment’s topic is creating a better life — both personally and professionally — after creating the right energy.

    Carolin Hauser-Carson is a naturopathic doctor, intuitive energy healer and spiritual teacher who helps people to realize the ways childhood trauma wreaks havoc on the subconscious, and helps them to move past it. Hauser-Carson’s work is based on the intersection of where the human body and experience meets past — and even ancestral — trauma, and shows how each individual’s authentic and true self is the source of one’s own good; a place of unlimited abundance, creativity, courage and joyful existence. Hauser-Carson’s unique healing methods focus on releasing trauma from the nervous system, aligning universal laws with a person’s energy management and integrating the energy within.

    Hauser-Carson says that her business helps people create the relationships that they desire, in both their personal lives and professional lives. She explains, “When I work with people, we go directly to the energetic impact. When trauma has happened it impacts your nervous system. So rather than simply talking about what this was, we literally work with the nervous system in the body to loosen that specific thing so that energy can flow again and you feel good and you’re operating at the highest level.”

    JL Haber, Vice President of Programming for Worldwide Business with kathy ireland®, is proud to feature Carolin Hauser. He says, “After experiencing trauma, many people have trouble getting back on track.

    The Department of Labor’s (DOL) recent passage of its new Fiduciary Rule has caused a bit of a stir in the financial services community. Whatever affect the new the rule has on the industry, the principles of retirement planning remain basic: save more, pay less.

    PARSIPPANY, NJ – 11/17/2017 — The Department of Labor’s (DOL) recent passage of its new Fiduciary Rule has caused a bit of a stir in the financial services community. The rule has many implications, among them binding advisors who work with retirement planning, both legally and ethically, to do what is in the best interest of their clients. While there is little debate about that aspect of the rule, one portion that advisors are scrutinized a bit more closely is the way that these rules may be interpreted to identify conflicts of interest and reduce or eliminate commissions.

    “There is definitely a lot of conversation happening around the new rule,” says Thomas O’Connell, principal of International Financial Advisors, a financial services firm headquartered in Parsippany, New Jersey. “Commissions are a big focus of the talk because they’ve largely been spoken of as though they’re inherently negative. But many types of employees work on commission and as long as they are serving the best interest of the client and the client is getting what they expect out of the deal, it may not actually be as big of an issue as it’s being made out to be.”

    An August 14, 2017 report by Investopedia notes that though the rule expands the definition of an “investment advice fiduciary” under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).[1] This has the effect of elevating all financial advisors who work with retirement plans to fiduciaries, who are held to a higher standard than other advisors. Taken to its furthest extent, the rule could effectively eliminate commissions altogether and cause other changes that can potentially cost the financial services industry $2.4 billion, the report continues. This may be particularly hard on smaller firms who may not be able to comply with the rule quickly enough.

    Whatever effect the rule has on the industry, for clients, the end goal is to save money and preserve their legacy as they move into and through retirement. “The biggest questions clients ask are ‘Do I have enough money for retirement?’ and ‘Will my savings last through retirement.’ While the amount each person needs will vary, the principles that govern whether they have enough remain the same.”

    What are those principles? Making the same dollar do double the work is one and reducing taxes is another. Cash value life insurance policies may be one place where clients can kill two birds with one stone. “Life insurance is one good place to get more value from a dollar. Depending on how the plan is structured, it can be a very good savings vehicle with good returns and little risk of depreciation,” says O’Connell. “A properly structured plan can also help an individual save on taxes, or at least have them deferred, which allows the money to grow at a better rate. It’s really a better financial boon than a 401k.”

    A good process for selecting and evaluating financial decisions is also essential to the planning process. O’Connell, who currently serves on the Board of Directors for the New Jersey Better Business Bureau, notes that a sound approach has four parts: discovery, strategy, implementation, and evaluation. Missing any of these crucial steps can mean losing out on maximum financial performance. “Every part of the process has its purpose. Discovery is essential to figuring out what to do, strategy is figuring out how to do it, implementation is doing it, and evaluation determines whether it’s working,” O’Connell goes on to say. “Eliminating one of those can mean missing out on earnings or continuing with investments or products that may have looked good on paper but aren’t actually working.”

    Another important principle of retirement planning is to manage perception versus reality and ensure the two mesh. “A generation ago things looked a lot different in the retirement landscape and people often have outdated and unrealistic views of what retirement will look like,” O’Connell warns. He notes, for instance, many people believe they’ll be able to continue working past retirement—most don’t. As well, many people also believe that employer-provided retirement benefits will play a bigger role than they often actually end up playing. Understanding the landscape and managing expectations is a large part of the retirement planning process that can ensure clients make the best decisions for themselves.

    Offering up this type of advice may come under a new kind of scrutiny under the DOL’s new rule, and how it ends up affecting those offering retirement financial services remains to be seen. Whatever the rule’s affect, there is no replacement for sound financial and retirement planning advice and the endgame is still to support the client. “When an advisor has a passion and desire to help others build and keep more of their money it shows,” O’Connell remarks. “Commissions or none, every advisor’s goal should be helping the client build their money and keep more of it for themselves.”

    HONG KONG – 11/18/2017 — Hong Kong – Following over a year of planning, and in collaboration with its members throughout Asia, the Global Supply Chain Council (GSCC) is taking steps to evolve into a regional professional organization devoted to promoting the supply chain profession across Asia year-round.

    As part of this change, the organization, founded in 2002 and whose members historically were based in China, will be extending invitations to supply chain, logistics and procurement executives throughout the region to join GSCC and introducing geographically defined chapters in support of both local and regional identity and initiatives.

    This role of regional organizer is not a new one for the Global Supply Chain Council (GSCC).

    For over a decade, GSCC has organized events and activities in many geographies, see http://www.gscc.co/cpages/all-events and pro-actively promoted the supply chain profession all around Asia. The move to be regionally focused means expanding on its current mission and providing knowledge and resources and marketing muscle for all manufacturers, retailers and brand owners, along with industry supporters, not just once a year, but full time.

    “With 30+ events a year and fast-growing community of 100,000 executives, the Global Supply Chain Council is the leading supply chain organizationan in Asia,” says GSCC Executive Director Max Henry. “Over the last decade, through a unified effort, we’ve collectively established GSCC as one of the world’s most respected organization and events producer, despite the proliferation of events across Asia. That achievement is proof of what we can accomplish when we work together.”

    Evolving into a regional guild means establishing new governance and setting up local chapters, each connected to the parent organization – China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia – as well as an another potential chapter in Japan.

    Developing this new organizational structure could take a year or two, Henry estimates, but that’s by design. All stakeholders want to ensure a healthy foundation gets built. To that end, GSCC is in conversation with academic and nonprofit business leaders to draw upon expert guidance and ensure organizational longevity and success.

    “Looking forward, we are fully committed to grow the APAC region as the new gold standard for supply chain knowledge, events and resources.”

    About the Global Supply Chain Council
    Founded in 2002, the Global Supply Chain Council (GSCC) is Asia’s leading professional organization serving a fast-growing community of 100,000 executives and representing leading companies who view their supply chains as a critical driver of shareholder value and competitiveness.
