USRoadWarriors.Com Launches with Four Niche Recruitment Sites for Professional Drivers

Lifestyle, careers, news and information sites focus on building a positive image of the transportation industry.

Recruitment Sites

Round Rock, TX, USA — USRW LLC, parent company of USRoadWarriors.com (http://www.usroadwarriors.com), a lifestyle, careers, news and information portal for professional drivers and truckers, has announced the launch of four niche recruitment sites designed to appeal to a broad group of transportation professionals.

DriverJobCenter.com (http://www.driverjobcenter.com) focuses on all individuals that make their living behind the wheel including local delivery drivers, OTR or “Over the Road” truckers, dump truck drivers and even corporate drivers for companies like FEDEX or UPS.

“Most trucker sites unintentionally exclude these drivers. Having just returned from the GATS Great American Trucking show in Dallas, I found that there were many large employers seeking drivers of all kinds represented at the show,” noted Carl Braun, Co-Founder and Publisher of USRoadWarriors.com.

Braun has a 20-year history in the job board industry starting with his first site in 1996 called Hire-Power.com. He has since launched dozens of job boards in niche categories like diversity trucking and veterans. USRoadWarriors.com follows the trend with several sites designed to appeal to growth opportunity segments in the industry.

With only 6% of drivers being female, job board GirlsNTrucks.com (http://www.girlsntrucks.com) appeals to perhaps the largest hiring opportunity for the transportation industry. DiverseDriver.com (http://www.diversedriver.com) seeks out minority drivers and VeteranDriver.com (http://www.veterandriver.com) helps connect companies with returning military and veterans, a very active segment largely due to the patriotic nature of trucking companies and the unique skills many veterans bring to their future employers.

Each of these sites provides visitors with original content and articles written specifically for women, minorities and veterans along with thousands of job opportunities with companies highly motivated to consider them.

There is currently a 73.500 driver shortage in the US and the American Trucking Association projects an 890,000 driver shortage over the next decade.

“Transportation employers are faced with tough decisions today and in the future. The average age of drivers is 52 and the market is overwhelmingly white and male. Over the next several years, many of these drivers will retire leaving a huge gap in the space. Actively recruiting women, minorities and veterans will play an important role in filling the growing needs,” Braun said.

USRoadWarriors.com intends to help build the image of the trucking industry into one where everyone is welcome to join and the career opportunities are appreciated for their stability, pay and mobile lifestyle.

Author John Simmons Releases His New Novel – Monsieur Le 6: 2016 Presidential Election Edition

Provocative new novel features US Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Monsieur Le 6

Staten Island, NY, USA — Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has unwittingly resurrected a literary novel in which the fictionalized version of the candidate undergoes sex change surgery to wreak social and political havoc. Monsieur le 6, a hilarious but powerful mashup of sex and politics which could not find a publisher when author John Simmons first composed it, will debut as an eBook in time for the election (Apple River Press, $2.99).

Several characters in the novel originally bore made-up names, said Simmons, the author of several novels and works of nonfiction. “With Trump running for president, and other characters in the novel now dead, the masks can come off,” said Simmons. Other roles in the satiric send-up of contemporary politics belong to former Mayor of New York Ed Koch and his Commissioner of Consumer Affairs, Bess Myerson, with appearances by George H. W. Bush, Cardinal John J. O’Connor, and Jimmy Swaggart.

Monsieur le 6 might have remained on a shelf in Simmons’ closet but for the outsized and outrageous success of candidate Trump together with an unintended assist from The New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, who published an op-ed, “If Donald Trump Changed Genders,” on February 27, 2016. That reminded Simmons that his fictionalized Trump instigated the novel’s most outrageous conceit – genitals exchanged in high places.

As high satire, Monsieur le 6 brings the Marquis de Sade to bear on American politics. Sade, famous for his pornographic works, wrote extensively about politics. Simmons also relied on Herman Melville’s famed The Confidence Man to insure an American feel and context. Today the novel’s ripped-from-the-headlines content should have even greater appeal. Besides the intersection of sex and political corruption, themes include mass incarceration, abortion, urban poverty, and police brutality.

Monsieur le 6 may shock today just as it did in the early 1990s, says Simmons. “The San Francisco publisher City Lights, which had done Allen Ginsberg’s Howl, wanted to publish but decided it could not. The novel acquired nice rejection letters although some agents were less than enthusiastic. One suggested that, as with Nabokov’s Lolita, the novel be stored under a rock for a thousand years.”

• About the Author: John Simmons is the author of 4 previous novels (The Sharing, Cried the Piper, Lamplighter, and Midnight Walking) and several works of nonfiction. He was the recipient of a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts in 2011; he and his wife, Jocelyne Barque, are currently completing translation of Aline and Valcour, a monumental novel by Marquis de Sade.

Rosendin Electric Receives 2016 Constructech Gold Vision Award for Software Tool to Standardize Field Payroll Processes

New Time Tracking Integration Solution Wins Top Honors for Streamlining Payroll, Eliminating Errors, and Accurately Tracking Work Hours.

Rosendin Electric

San Jose, CA, USA — Rosendin Electric (http://www.rosendin.com), one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, has received a 2016 Gold Vision Award from Constructech for developing a process to streamline and standardize field payroll for offices and job sites across the country. The new payroll solution eliminates coding errors, saves administration time on data entry and remediation, and provides project supervisors an extremely accurate picture of labor utilization and requirements, which is a real advantage in competitive bidding.

The Constructech Vision Awards acknowledge the accomplishments of companies that have applied technology in innovative ways to remain competitive in the field of construction. Rosendin Electric won this year’s Gold Vision award for developing Time Entry, a custom application designed to integrate AboutTime mobile resource management software with Oracle’s financial accounting system. The new Time Entry system has allowed Rosendin Electric to standardize payroll processing across all company offices. This system eliminates coding errors, reduces payroll processing time, and provides an accurate daily report of time worked. Said one project manager, “We now have validation in place. The new system enables us to catch errors we have not been able to in the past. We also reprocess fewer corrected paychecks thanks to the new system.”

“Rosendin Electric is continually assessing new technology and strategies that improve efficiency, but every new technology solution has to prove itself cost-effective,” said Diya Peter, Operations Applications Lead for Rosendin Electric. “Our new Time Entry system has already substantially reduced administration time and payroll errors. It has the added benefit of making our field superintendents more efficient and it gives management an accurate picture of worker hours required to increase bidding accuracy. We know that Time Entry has proven a winner for Rosendin Electric and we are delighted that Constructech agrees by granting us a Gold Vision Award.”

Before implementing the new Time Entry system, Excel timesheets were gathered from various regions, imported into a database for validation, and then moved to the Oracle platform for payroll processing. The challenge was that time was being charged to invalid task codes, in turn leading to substantial delays and remediation of paychecks. Regional managers were also spending more time gathering timesheets and checking them for accuracy.

With the new Time Entry system, Rosendin Electric project managers can now use their iPads or handheld devices to track and transmit time from the job site each day, leading to more accurate reporting without task code errors. Time Entry has allowed job superintendents to enter notes about reimbursements, job overrides, and other variables, thus, eliminating time-consuming communication between regional administrators and payroll staff. The new Time Entry also leverages RFID, QR/barcode badges to more accurately track workers time on the job.

This is the third consecutive year that Rosendin Electric has received a Vision Award. The company also received a Gold Constructech Vision Award in the category of Specialty Contractor: Electrical Work in 2015, 2014, 2012, and 2011.

T5 Data Centers’ T5@Atlanta and T5@LA Wholesale Data Centers PCI Certified and HIPAA Compliant

T5 Receives Attestations for Healthcare Security and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards for Both Wholesale Data Center and Colocation Operations.

T5 Data Centers Logo

Atlanta, GA, USA — T5 Data Centers™ (http://www.t5datacenters.com), innovators in providing state-of-the-art, customizable and highly reliable computing support environments, today announced that its T5@Atlanta and T5@LA data centers have been certified compliant with the latest credit card data security standards and determined to be compliant with healthcare regulatory standards. T5 has received third-party attestations for compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, and the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard.

Compliance extends to T5’s colocation services as well as its wholesale data center services and gives T5 a competitive advantage when bidding for healthcare and transaction-driven contracts, especially for data center customers since certification for wholesale data centers is less common. To qualify, T5 worked with independent auditors to verify that all the necessary physical and network security components were in place.

“We are seeing more RFPs from healthcare service providers, insurance companies, e-commerce companies, and financial institutions that need assurance that our facilities comply with the latest security standards,” said Frank Lyles, Chief Business Officer for T5 Data Centers. “We elected to use a third-party auditor so our customers could be confident in our standards compliance, and so we could expand security testing beyond the scope of the standards. I am pleased to say that our physical and network security procedures were tested and found to meet or exceed the rigor of the applicable standards.”

The HIPAA Security Rule is a national standard to protect patient medical records and personal health information. It requires appropriate safeguards to protect personal health information, including standards for the safe handling of patient data. The HITECH standard promotes the adoption of health information technology, including the secure electronic transmission of health information. PCI-DSS is a set of industry security standards that ensures that all companies that accept, process, store, and/or transmit credit card information, maintain a secure environment.
