Rick Vanzura Shares the Traits of Effective Leaders

For business veterans such as Rick Vanzura, leadership is not as simple as many people perceive it to be. Success in business today requires effective leadership. Without this fundamental component, any business is going to end up dead in the water. But the truth is that there is no one right way to successfully manage a company and its employees. Enduring managerial proficiency can only come through an adaptable approach at every stage.

“Style matters much less than substance. If a leader can articulate a clear vision and consistent set of principles, then follow-through on those principles and commitments, he or she is a long way down the road toward being effective,” Vanzura explains.

A recent post by staffing firm Medix sheds light on the importance of flexibility within leadership style. The company has worked with multiple businesses of various sizes and industries since its founding. What their team has learned is that stylistic variance within leadership is not necessarily a negative. In fact, making a productive change within leadership could drastically improve the potential for business success. Read more

danny treanorVeteran meteorologist Danny Treanor is returning to Orlando television as a freelance meteorologist for WKMG, the Orlando Sentinel’s Hal Boedeker reports:

“We live in the same area of town and attend the same church,” Treanor said. “Additionally, I have many friends and former co-workers at Local 6, including Lisa Bell and Julie Broughton, along with producers and photographers.” Treanor called it “a treat to be working with some wonderful friends.”

Prevent Aging Before You Get Wrinkles Say Skin Care Experts At BellaVei

Contrary to popular belief, BellaVei skincare says that anti-aging practices should begin in your 20s.
Dermatologists say that skin looks more youthful and radiant in your 20s and requires a minimal number of products for a healthy, natural glow. According to dermatologist Maritza Perez, “Aging is a chronological process. When we are in our 20s, our skin is plump, lustrous, healthy and resilient. Your skin is very elastic so if you pinch yourself it bounces right back. As you age, you stop producing collagen, elastin and proteoglycans and glucosaminoglycans.”

But there are still a lot of misconceptions about caring for your skin in your 20s. Many women think that if they don’t see a problem, there is nothing to address. The fact that many anti-aging products are targeted to women over 40 doesn’t help. BellaVei contends that by the time signs of aging show up on your face, the damage has already been done.
New York-based dermatologist Anne Chapas, Director of Union Square Laser Dermatology, says this is a huge mistake. “It’s never too soon to be proactive about taking care of your skin,” says Chapas. “I truly believe that the health habits that begin in the 20s can make a big difference in the skin health and appearance later in life.” Read more

Taglit Birthright Israel Trip: An Adventure Guaranteed to Have Lasting Impact

According to Rabbi and Jewish scholar Mahir Reiss, having the opportunity to take a Taglit Birthright Israel trip is a once in a lifetime adventure. Not only does it teach the young people more about their religion, it enables them to get up close and personal with it in a life-changing way. Here, Rabbi Mahir Reiss shares some of the reasons why young people should consider going on the Taglit Birthright trip.

This is not simply an adventure in Israel, Rabbi Reiss explains. Though the voyage is exciting and the participants enjoy themselves immensely, it is meant to be an educational and spiritual experience. The mission of the Taglit Birthright Israel organization is to strengthen the Jewish identity and their communities, the organization’s website explains. This is done by providing young Jewish people ages 18 to 26 with the opportunity to enjoy a ten day experience through Israel.

According to the organization’s website, more than 350,000 people have been able to take advantage of the trip and visited Israel. The trip was originally offered only to college students in the U.S. and Canada; however, it has become so popular since its debut in 1999, that now the trip is offered to people in 64 countries and the organization has expanded the age requirement.

Diversified Consultants: Overhaul TCPA to Reduce Inefficiencies

Like many other companies, Diversified Consultants has to operate despite a sometimes-onerous burden of regulation upon their business models.

In response to a public perception that so-called “robo-dialers” had gone too far in removing the human element from contacting prospective voters and debtors, in 1991 President George H.W. Bush signed the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) into law, an amendment to the Communications Act of 1934.

The TCPA restricts solicitation via telephone and the use of automated telephone equipment— in particular the use of automatic dialing systems, artificial or prerecorded voice messages, SMS text messages, and fax machines. Several technical requirements for fax machines, autodialers, and voice messaging systems specified by the law principally consist of provisions requiring identification and contact information of the entity using the device to be available to the consumer.

Neumont University Shares 6 Ways to Ensure You Have a Job Right Out of College

As college tuition continues its inexorable rise and young people take on more and more debt to pay for their educations, students are growing more concerned about the Return on Investment (ROI) their college can provide. College ROI scores put a dollar figure on those diplomas by measuring graduate earnings over the 30 years following graduation. The 2013 edition of one popular annual college ROI study, authored by payment and compensation firm PayScale, found tech and engineering schools claiming the top five spots in terms of ROI (earnings are cumulative over 30 years, net of tuition, fees, and financial aid).

Clearly, tech and computer science are the careers young people should consider if ROI is a concern. In fact, Software Developer was listed at the top of US News’ most recent 100 Best Jobs list. Computer Analyst was second.

“Students who choose to major in computer science have a distinctive advantage in the job market, since there are more jobs than qualified candidates coming out of college,” says Aaron Reed, Executive Vice President at Neumont University. Read more

The U.S. Department of Defense reports that a study released by the Center for a New American Security showed that while only one percent of Americans have served during the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, veterans make up 20 percent of suicides in the U.S. Read more
