Author Jane Thompson Releases Her New Novel “Applied Biology: A Novel of Bipolar Disorder”

A young woman with bipolar disorder (manic depression) escapes from Hitler’s euthanasia program and starts a battle to shed light on the procedure. She interests those in power, and sheds light on the crime. Later she runs to England, where she attempts to involve Churchill and Eisenhower in stopping Hitler’s murder, and she ends up in the French Resistance.

Applied Biology - A Novel of Bipolar Disorder

Georgetown, TX, USA (March 27, 2015) — Join author Jane Thompson on a journey through the frustrating, agonizing and deeply personal world of mental illness in her new novel, Applied Biology: A Novel of Bipolar Disorder (now available through Amazon and Kindle). Link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Applied-Biology-Novel-Biopolar-Disorder/dp/1507650892.

In a candid style and with compassion for bipolar disorder sufferers, Thompson chronicles the struggles, failures and, ultimate triumphs of her protagonist as she fights for her life as a mentally ill person in a society that believes in the euthanasia of the mentally ill.

“It is the tale of a woman who cheats death and goes up against Hitler, getting those with power to power to speak out against his deadly program,” writes Thompson.

Claudia managed to escape the soldiers who were determined to trap and kill her from the asylum. She goes to work to publicize the ugly truth and Hitler is forced to take his killing program underground.

Claudia escapes Germany and goes to England, where she tries to work through Churchill and Eisenhower to stop Hitler’s reign of terror. Finally, she ends up in the French Resistance where she fights the battle up close and personal. We do not know the end of Claudia’s and her family’s story, but it is a tale of Nazi Germany told from a different perspective, from the inside out.

It details the uphill battle to fight and live in a totalitarian society with your life on the life on the line. It is a suspenseful, humanitarian tale told with humor and grace. All the love Claudia shows to the world is enough to make her a courageous and unforgettable heroine.

The target audience for this novel is those who suffer with this diagnosis and those who love those who are afflicted. It will ultimately teach people courage and hope.

Thompson has worked as a social worker, teacher, paralegal and writer. She holds bachelors and master’s degrees from the University of Oklahoma. She wrote for the publisher of a political encyclopedia and served as a medical writer for a training corporation. She has had 20 short stories published, has written about bipolar disorder in Sugar and Salt: My Life with Bipolar Disorder, The Rookie’s Guide to Bipolar Disorder and Flying Buttresses: A Novel of Bipolar Disorder.

T5 Data Centers(TM) Adds a Level 3 Fiber “Point-of-Presence” in the T5@Atlanta Data Center

T5@Atlanta, the Southeast’s premiere multi-tenant data center, now provides its customers direct access to the Level 3 network by way of an on-site Point-of-Presence.

T5 Data Centers

Atlanta, GA, USA (March 25, 2015) — T5 Data Centers™, a provider of Multi-Tenant Data Centers with a portfolio of facilities across North America, today announced global telecommunications company Level 3 Communications, will provide a fiber point-of-presence (PoP) at the company’s “T5@Atlanta” data center. Current and future tenants will have the option to lease direct network access from Level 3 for greater reliability and flexibility.

T5@Atlanta is a purpose-built, Tier III, server-ready data center that features multiple independent data suites occupied by various tenants. Enterprises can take advantage of stronger service level agreements (SLAs), more available bandwidth and better service and support through the new access to Level 3’s highly secure fiber backbone.

“By establishing a PoP at T5@Atlanta we can offer enterprise customers around the country faster, more reliable access to their critical data,” said Brian Dolan, vice president and general manager of Georgia for Level 3. “We recently expanded our network presence in the technology corridor Alpharetta to provide the local to global connection for the more than 600 companies working out of the area.”

One of seven sites across the United States, T5@Atlanta has more than 100,000 square feet under one roof, including 55,000 feet of raised floor, with individual data halls, each separated by slab-to-deck, fire-rated walls for autonomous operation. The data center also has an installed critical IT power load of 6,000 kW, expandable to 9,000 kW and is fed by five separate substations; two of them on Georgia Power’s “Hi-Reli” system for mission-critical users. It’s ideally suited for companies that require secure, dedicated control of their mission critical data operations, such as financial service firms, insurance companies, and health care providers.

“Although we remain a carrier-neutral colocation provider, we want to be able to offer our tenants a choice in telecommunications providers, including direct network access over high-speed fiber,” said Jason Chartrand, Executive Vice President of National Business Development for T5 Data Centers. “This new agreement with Level 3 puts us in a stronger position to serve regional customers with highly reliable colocation services.”

Currently Level 3 is the only network services provider to have a PoP facility on-site.

Distinctive Career Services Adds Federal Resume Writing to Job Search Support Services

Government Career Experts Help Job Seekers Package Their Expertise for Placement in the Federal Job Market.

Distinctive Career Services LLC Logo

Wakefield, New Hampshire, USA (March 25, 2015) — Distinctive Career Services, LLC, career and resume consultants for professionals and executives for nearly 20 years, has added a new resume writing service specifically designed for professionals seeking a career with the federal government. The new federal resume writing services are designed to assist job seekers in highlighting and promoting the unique skills and qualifications required to be considered for work in the federal sector.

There are millions of civilian jobs and the federal government is seeking new talent all the time, but few professionals understand what it takes to navigate the federal job application process, including what hiring managers look for in a resume.

On average, there are 250 resumes submitted for every job opening. That means an applicant has 15 seconds or less to stand out. In addition, government agencies require detailed resumes that include elements not typical in resumes written for the private sector. The resulting three- to five-page federal resume must also be structured in a prescribed format. If a federal job candidate does not follow the application instructions and can’t immediately demonstrate he or she has the right expertise and the right credentials then their resume will never be considered. That’s why Distinctive Career Services has created as specialized practice for government job seekers staffed by experts experienced in federal resume writing.

“Every job market has unique requirements and that’s especially true for federal workers,” said Michelle Dumas, founder and Executive Director of Distinctive Career Services. “It’s essential to highlight specific skills and qualifications, such as veteran status, language skills, and security clearance. Federal job screeners are looking for very specific qualifications, and our team of resume experts know what those criteria are based on years of experience. If you are looking for a job with the government we can help you demonstrate that you have the right qualifications to rise above the crowd.”

In addition to federal resume writing, Dumas and the team of career professionals at Distinctive Career Services offer a wide range of career support services, including cover letter writing, LinkedIn profile writing, job search assistance, and personal branding strategies. Dumas herself holds both Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW) and Nationally Certified Resume Writer (NCRW) credentials, and is a trained career coach and a Certified Personal Branding Strategist (CPBS) with credentials as a Certified Employment Interview Professional (CEIP) and a Job & Career Transition Coach (JCTC).

Cross-Post LLC Launches Career-Wallet.com

Cross-Post LLC

New website helps job candidates manage their careers, apply for job opportunities, or take a college course using any mobile device.

Careerpointe Logo

Petaluma, CA, USA (March 23, 2014) — Cross-Post LLC, owner of Cross-Post Digital Recruitment Networks and co-owner of the CareerPointe Recruitment Classifieds Platform for publishers, announces the launch of its newest career management tool.

Career-Wallet.com is a web portal that provides free employment and career search tools, along with free and low-cost online educational opportunities from colleges and universities around the world. It is one of the first products of its kind and utilizes the ONREC 2014 award winning Tracklet? technology from Careerleaf of Canada.

“After considerable research, it was determined that job candidates viewed the job search and hiring process negatively. At the top of the list was having to fill out dozens of applications and then throwing them into a black hole. They would search for jobs in the morning on their mobile devices and have to wait to apply for them that evening on their desktop. We set out to improve the candidate engagement experience and, with our partners, have created a truly unique job search and career enhancement tool that candidates can use for the rest of their lives.” Noted John Fujii President of Cross-Post LLC.

Career-wallet.com allows candidates to create their own personal job search portal quickly, using their LinkedIn account or resume to fill out their profile. They can upload multiple resumes and cover letters and keep track of every job lead and application for the rest of their careers. Though not a job board, Career-wallet.com gives them access to every job board on earth through the website. To apply for a job online, they simply have to drag their Tracklet? to their browser toolbar to the apply button, fill in the application with one click, retrieve their resume and cover letter, and hit apply. That job then appears in their Job Manager where they can track the progress of the application, and get tips and reminders to research and follow up with employers.

Everyone is a job candidate at one time or another, and passive and active candidates can use Career-Wallet.com to improve their skills by taking free and low cost courses from some of the top educational institutions in the world. Through a partnership with the folks over at MoocTracks, candidates can search a global database of more than 14,000 Mooc’s or massively open online courses.

“This is such an awesome resource for early career and college students as well as the more seasoned professional who may be looking for a career change or finds themselves in outplacement. My son signed up for a free course in Business Theory at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) in about five minutes and it is being taught by some of the top business minds in the country today. What a great resume builder. ” Said Carl Braun CEO of Cross-Post LLC.

“Mobilizing your job search is particularly appealing to candidates that are on the road often. From truckers to road warriors, everything available on Career-wallet.com can be done on a smartphone or tablet. The website is responsively designed, so it work on any size screen or mobile device. Applying for a job on your smartphone with a few clicks is a huge advancement in the marketplace.

Cross-Post plans to work with outplacement firms, college sites, veterans groups and others to extend this free tool to any and all candidates interested in finding a new job or building their knowledge base. The tools found on Career-Wallet are built into all CareerPointe job boards.
