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.

Rosendin Electric, Inc., headquartered in San Jose, California, is an employee-owned electrical engineering, power, and communications provider.

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.

Zevrix Solutions

Toronto (ON), Canada — Zevrix Solutions today announces the release of Output Factory Server 1.2.15, a feature update to its solution to automate printing, exporting and post-processing from Adobe InDesign.

Print and export InDesign files automatically from hot folders
-Supports print, PDF, PostScript, TIFF, HTML, EPUB and other formats
-Automatic variable email notifications
Export InDesign files as single pages

Patricia Schnepf is Named Gallery’s New Featured Artist

Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that fine art photographer Patricia Schnepf has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist.

Light Space & Time Logo

Jupiter, FL, USA — Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery is very pleased to announce that fine art photographer Patricia Schnepf has been named as the Gallery’s new featured artist and she will now be promoted by the gallery for the next 30 days and be presented in their Artist Showcase.

Patricia Schnepf - Artist Showcase - LST

Patricia studied at various art studios in New York though she is mostly self-taught in photography and photographic art techniques through constant practice, and experimenting.

Art is again Patricia’s full-time passion. She worked in the art field for several years as a fashion designer; costume designer in theater; and film production and broadcasting before detouring from her art to tend to personal responsibilities of family and being a single mother.

Patricia is fascinated by texture. While some scenes project softness, dramatics, and crispness, others are full of textures to be experienced through visual sensations. The type of paper on which the artwork is printed often becomes an integral part of her composition to give a “literal” feel to the image. In formal studio work, she melds lighting techniques with the dynamics of the subject. Patricia’s website is http://www.patriciaschnepfphotography.com.

Dr. Michael K. Obeng will Perform a Miraculous Surgery on Sarjo Trawally, a 4-year-old Girl from Gambia with a Life threatening Facial Cystic Hygroma

From the anointed mind to the gifted hands of Dr. Michael K. Obeng, miracles have come true for many that cannot afford surgeries in third-world countries with poverty beyond understanding.

Sarjo Trawally

Beverly Hills, CA, USA — After careful, strategically planned trips to four countries this summer, Dr. Obeng was touched and moved by 4-year-old Sarjo with her disfigured face. Dr. Obeng has arranged for Sarjo to come to United States where he will do what may seem by millions as impossible. Sarjo arrives in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 11, 2016, which is when her transformation will begin. Dr. Obeng was born with the gift himself, to touch and change lives, faces, bodies etc. of many, with no means whatsoever to handle the cost for these surgeries. Dr. Obeng, through his charity, R.E.S.T.O.R.E., Restoring Emotional Stability Through Outstanding Reconstructive Efforts, and donations from the kindhearted, has been able to donate 100% of all services free for all surgeries that he and his select staff performs either on tour or case by case here in Beverly Hills, CA.

Dr. Obeng came to Midwestern State University (MSU) from Ghana. He saw a flyer about the university in a friend’s dorm room and knew it was in Texas, but that was all. While an MSU student, Dr. Obeng laid carpet, worked for Golden Corral, and drove a school bus for the Wichita Falls Independent School District. His bed was one he rescued from someone else’s trash, and he and his roommate alternated sleeping on it and the floor. After his first semester at MSU, he got a job at the Moffett Library and eventually landed a job as a residence assistant that paid his room and board, a big relief for a struggling student.

Dr. Obeng earned his Bachelor of Science from MSU in 1997, graduating cum laude with a major in Chemistry and a double minor in Mathematics & Biology. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch and completed post-graduate work in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Texas Medical Branch John Sealy Hospitals and The Shriner’s Hospital for Children before accepting a fellowship at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Obeng is currently the Director of his own private practice, MiKO Plastic Surgery and MiKO Surgery Center in Beverly Hills, California while also serving on staff at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California. Dr. Obeng is a noted author and lecturer on healthcare disparities around the globe. He has received numerous honors, awards and recognition for his professional achievements including a research grant from the National Institute of Health and the Herman A. Barnett Memorial Award for Excellence in Surgery and Anesthesia. His professional society memberships include the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and the American Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery.

Dr. Obeng recently launched a consulting firm, Global Health Solution, which is aimed to bridge the gap between morbidity and healthy living in developing countries. He believes a “Healthy country is a wealthy country.”

In Ghana, Dr. Obeng saw the pain caused by physical deformities, and the helplessness of those afflicted as they lived with their situation with no money, and too few qualified physicians to have the problem corrected. To resolve this issue, he then formed R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide, Inc. in 2008 (Restoring Emotional Stability Through Outstanding Reconstructive Efforts) to help those people and others in need. Since its inception in 2008 R.E.S.T.O.R.E.’s volunteer teams have traveled to 7 countries, including Gabon, Ghana, Guatemala, Mexico and Nigeria performing over 200 reconstructive surgeries worth over $ 5,000,000 USD and all on a pro-bono basis. Dr. Obeng credits the giving spirit of teachers, advisers, and fellow students during his time at Midwestern State University, The University of Texas and Harvard for instilling in him the need to help others. “I won’t forget where it all started,” he said.

About R.E.S.T.O.R.E.: R.E.S.T.O.R.E. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit medical service organization that provides free reconstructive surgery and related medical services to children and adults with disfiguring deformities from birth, accidents and diseases. Many developing countries shun those afflicted with disfiguring deformities and look upon them as outcasts or “freaks”. Often their own families hide them from the general public to spare them from either being ridiculed or physically harmed because of their disfigured appearance.

Although there is an overwhelming need for plastic surgery in developing countries, these types of surgeries are not available because there are no personnel trained to provide the necessary surgeries. As part of the organizations mission they seek to educate and train local physicians in the techniques necessary to perpetuate their initial work to continually benefit more people for years to come.

“ONE FACE, ONE BREAST, ONE BODY AT A TIME”.

Chef Kevin Binkley: Back to the Kitchen

Chef Binkley has now decided to go back to basics (and get back to the kitchen) by bringing an entirely new concept to the Phoenix Valley in October 2016.

Binkleys Restaurant Logo

Phoenix, AZ, USA — “I didn’t get into this business because I love business,” says Binkley, who’s been a finalist for the prestigious James Beard Best Chef Southwest award for five straight years. “I want to cook food, and the more locations we have, the less I get to do that, and that’s not OK.”

A trained chef that has worked at 2 of the top 13 restaurants in the United States and has been nominated by the James Beard Foundation 5 years running – has gone from owning one award-winning restaurant in Arizona in 2004 to owning four restaurants by 2013. Chef Binkley has now decided to go back to basics (and get back to the kitchen) by bringing an entirely new concept to the Phoenix Valley in October 2016. Located in his previous restaurant Bink’s Midtown – the restaurant is a converted house built in 1928. The dining experience will take guests through different sections of the house – anywhere from the patio, communal dining at the bar, or your own table in the main dining room. The walls will be knocked down between dining room and kitchen and the chefs’ will be delivering the courses and explaining the dishes along the way to guests and asking for instant feedback.

Chef Binkley is known for pushing the boundaries of gastronomic innovation and highlighting the bounty of local, artisanal and house-made ingredients. The restaurant will only be open 4 days a week, Thursdays and Sundays will have one seating and Fridays/Saturdays will have 2 seating’s. An estimated 20 people per seating will be available and staff will be cut down to the minimum. Only one tasting menu will be available with limited substitutions available.

Not only is this story one for a chef re-inventing himself to push more culinary boundaries – but changing the game in Phoenix with an entirely new concept.

Time for the Media to Stop Calling Donald Trump a Billionaire, says Edgar Perez, The Speed Traders

Edgar Perez, author of Knightmare on Wall Street and The Speed Traders, calls on the mainstream media to stop referring Donald Trump as a billionaire until he releases his tax returns and agrees to an independent audit.

Edgar Perez

New York City, NY, USA — Part of the allure of Donald Trump, the Republican nominee in the upcoming U.S. elections, comes from his being wealthy, very wealthy. Books tell us about his incredible endurance and resilience after business bankruptcies brought his net worth down to minus $900 million, as he admitted to former wife Marla Maples when they were strolling along New York’s Fifth Avenue in the early 90s. Furthermore, the media doesn’t get tired of calling Donald J. Trump a billionaire, again and again.

A simple Google search for Donald Trump and the word billionaire brings up 38 million results; the same search with the word millionaire instead brings up just a bit more than 1 million results. The media could be forgiven of pushing this billionaire narrative if we consider that three prestigious publications have canonized Donald Trump as billionaire: Bloomberg, Fortune and Forbes.

How do they know Trump is a billionaire? Forbes gave once an overview of its methodology, “We keep track of their moves: the deals they negotiate, the land they’re selling, the paintings they’re buying, the causes they give to. Securities & Exchange Commission documents, court records, probate records, tax records, federal financial disclosures and Web and print stories-we dig through them all. In calculating wealth, we put a price on all assets, including stakes in public and privately held companies, real estate, art, yachts and planes.” Did I read tax records? In Trump’s case, this small detail might have been missing for decades, as he has proclaimed his taxes are none of the American public’s business.

Trump himself has discounted Forbes’s calculations for a different reason. “I think that they are very good people. I like the people at Forbes. They don’t know a lot of the things I own. I don’t think they give me any value for brand and my brand is very valuable. I do deals – I’m doing deals right now. In fact, when I leave you, I’m signing a branding deal that’s a phenomenal, tremendous hundreds of millions of dollars in value, all because of my brand,” said Trump to CNBC’s John Harwood.

What type of assumptions is Forbes doing to estimate Trump’s wealth when they don’t have access to his tax returns? Are they only relying on statements prepared by Trump himself or his advisors? What about if the estimates are way too high? In 1976, The New York Times published a fawning profile of Trump in which he was quoted as saying he was worth $200 million; that figure was utterly false, according to examination of Trump’s finances in 1981 by the Casino Control Commission.

Journalist Timothy O’Brien is among the few who saw Trump’s tax returns yet he is legally prevented from talking about them in detail; he has implied that Trump’s income is much lower than he often suggests; as expected from Trump, O’Brien was sued for libel after he claimed in a 2005 book that Trump’s real net worth was as low as $150 million-$250 million. For a man that has attempted to persuade America of his $10 billion net worth, the lower range falls into the plausible.

It is time to stop this part of the Trump’s mythology once and for all. What about if the media stops calling Trump a billionaire until he releases his tax returns and proves he deserves that label? What about if Trumps agrees to an audit from an independent body that can obtain access to all relevant information? The onus is on Trump.

Edgar Perez (http://www.MrEdgarPerez.com), author of The Speed Traders and Knightmare on Wall Street, is a recognized keynote speaker and director of programs targeted at board members, chief executive officers and senior executives looking for new ways to gain and maintain a competitive business advantage. He can be reached through Twitter and Weibo.

ABOUT KNIGHTMARE ON WALL STREET
Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, provides a fascinating account of what it took to elevate the firm to the cusp of the retail investing revolution of the late 1990s, to struggle through booms and busts, and to bring the firm down, to end up ultimately being ignominiously bought up by a competitor.

Knight Capital announced a staggering loss of $440 million. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap.

Knightmare on Wall Street, is a thrilling minute-by-minute account of the terrifying hours following Knight Capital’s August 1, 2012 trading debacle, with news-breaking research regarding the firm’s 17 years of tumultuous existence as an independent company. Knightmare on Wall Street is the definitive behind-the-scenes story of Knight Capital.

ABOUT THE SPEED TRADERS
High-frequency traders have been called many things-from masters of the universe and market pioneers to exploiters, computer geeks, and even predators. Everyone in the business of investing has an opinion of speed traders, but how many really understand how they operate? The shadow people of the investing world, today’s high-frequency traders have decidedly kept a low profile-until now. In this new title, The Speed Traders, Mr. Perez opens the door to the secretive world of high-frequency trading (HFT). Inside, prominent figures of HFT drop their guard and speak with unprecedented candidness about their trade.

Mr. Perez begins with an overview of computerized trading, which formally began on February 8, 1971, when NASDAQ launched the world’s first electronic market with 2,500 over-the-counter stocks and which has evolved into the present-day practice of making multiple trades in a matter of microseconds. He then picks the brains of today’s top players. John Netto (M3 Capital), Manoj Narang (Tradeworx), and Aaron Lebovitz (Infinium Capital Management) are just a few of the luminaries who decided to break their silence and speak openly to Mr. Perez. Virtually all of the expertise available from the world of speed trading is packed into these pages.

The Speed Traders, published by McGraw-Hill, is the most comprehensive, revealing work available on the most important development in trading in generations. High-frequency trading will no doubt play an ever larger role as computer technology advances and the global exchanges embrace fast electronic access. The Speed Traders explains everything there is to know about how today’s high-frequency traders make millions-one cent at a time.
