Dare to drream

Good morning!  The beginning of the last holiday weekend of this summer and we would like to publish an editorial by a leading expert in her field.
Donna J Jodhan is the president of Sterling Creations, a company that is one of the leading small businesses in communication services.
Donna produces a monthly editorial for her free online magazine and we would like to share this month's editorial with you.
We hope you enjoy your long holiday weekend.
 
Dare to dream
By Donna J Jodhan
 
In a world where everyone is becoming busier just trying to keep up with all kinds of things around them, I still dare to dream.  In a world where it appears that we are a bit too busy to care for each other, I still dare to dream.  In a society where we spend more time thinking about ourselves instead of listening a bit more to each other, I still dare to dream. 
 
Yes, I dare to dream and it is the one thing that no one can take from me.  I dream that some day soon we as a people will start to realize that there is much more to life than just keeping up with the Joneses and Smiths.  I dream that some day very soon companies will wake up and realize that in order to stay in business they will have to change the way in which they offer services to seniors and persons with disabilities.  I dream that sooner than later governments will really start to walk the walk instead of just talking the talk when it comes to treating persons with disabilities equally.  I dream that some day sooner than later women will be recognized for their abilities.
 
As a professional woman who is blind and of mixed race, I face many challenges on a daily basis but it does not stop me from daring to dream.  So the A & P supermarket in my neighborhood refuses to assist me whenever I go shopping and their head office says that "They are not in the business to help people, they are in the business to sell groceries." That will not stop me from daring to dream.  So the R.E.B. Magnetics company refuses to understand that if they offer their Sudoko game to blind consumers they should provide the instructions in Braille.  That will not stop me from daring to dream. 
 
So there are those chess clubs in Toronto who just don't seem to have the time of day to accommodate blind chess players.  That is not going to stop me from finding other avenues to play chess and daring to dream.  So there are those who were afraid to teach me to ice skate but you know what?  Thanks to Jan Haney I learned to ice skate and I dared to dream.
 
I keep on daring to dream because of wonderful people I meet every day during the course of my life.  Believe it or not, there are people like the folks at the Hadley school for the blind who offer distance learning courses to blind and visually impaired people around the world at no cost.  There are wonderful people like the folks at the United States Chess Association who help to keep dreams alive.  There are wonderful small companies like One Stop Internet Solutions that really understand how to provide true blue customer service.  There are persons out there who will go out of their way to help me dare to dream and for this I am eternally grateful. 
 
I continue to dare to dream and it is because of this that I continue to be successful.  I have always dared to dream and it is why others have been encouraged to help me fulfill these dreams.  To the folks at Concordia and McGill universities in Montreal, the Montreal Association for the Blind, the folks at Microsoft Canada and Novelle Canada, and to so many others too many to mention, thank you!

Time to stop stress in the workplace

Good morning!  I'm Kerry J Harrison at the business desk.
What would you say if I told you that stress in the workplace has now reached calamity proportions?  What would you say if I told you that both our government as well as the health industry is in crisis over this huge challenge because they are unable to stem the tide?  Now, you don't really want to be caught up in this whirlpool do you?

Answer:  Jay, It all has to do with our aging baby boomers.  We are dealing with a rapidly aging population who are demanding more and more anti aging health products and services and this trend is only going to grow as more and more of our population grows older.  Right now, it is the aging baby boomers who are fuelling the demand, but wait!  After them will come the kids of the baby boomers.  Please see the 
reference that I have provided below.

There is a growing demand for writers to help those whose first language is not English to put their information into fluent, proficient, and easy to understand English.  It does not necessarily mean that writing jobs will be moving overseas because there is the Internet to help bridge the gap.
Check out this very potent demand.

Blogging success takes a few months

Hello there!  How would you like to check out some very hot tips courtesy of WebProNews?
From time to time, we will be bringing you these tips straight from the horse's mouth as they say because we feel that you can benefit greatly from them.
At the business desk, here's wishing you a great weekend!

Blogging Success Takes A Few Months
David A. Utter | Staff Writer
 
The popularity contest of blogging and gaining links and traffic
doesn't happen overnight. It takes time and work.
 
Content is king? Not in the heavily saturated blogosphere. Whatever
idea you have, however you choose to present it, someone, somewhere
will do it as well or better.
 
Even legendary martial artist Bruce Lee understood this. While
the Little Dragon's popularity would have earned him a massive
following had he lived long enough to blog, you probably don't
have that cushion of love.
 
Copyblogger said you won't get that love, or the valuable links
that feed a blog. Not without working it, baby.

====================================================================
 
"Bloggers link more often to their friends than anyone else.
If you write a reasonably good piece of content that interests
their audience, they'll link to you, mainly because they like
you," Copyblogger said.
 
Copyblogger offered some advice on earning this adoration. Some of
it seems more reasonable than others, like volunteering to vote
up their posts on social media sites versus writing a guest post
on a popular blog. Anyone who can get into a popular blog with a
guest post probably has enough high-powered friends to get links
from them already.
 
Networking in person, commenting intelligently on their posts
online, and conducting an interesting interview of the desired
popular blogger offer chances at longer term relationships that
could lead to inbound linking and the followers who click them.
 
Being ignored isn't any fun. Neither is hard work, but without the
latter, it's difficult to resolve the former without some ultra-rare
bit of serendipity happening for your blog. We think it's better
to depend on the hard work than a fleeting bit of good fortune.

Miss An Olympic Moment? Yahoo To The Rescue
David A. Utter | Staff Writer
 
Photos, Shortcuts add Olympic depth to Yahoo Search
 
The time difference between China and America, plus the vagaries
of NBC's scheduling, may leave people missing something at the
Summer Olympics.
 
One might be naïve enough to think in this modern era of broadband
Internet and online video that an event of Olympic magnitude
delivers enough opportunities for people to keep up with all the
events, athletes, and countries.

It's not perfect yet, even though enthusiastic fans do their best
to share video and pictures outside the official purview of the
International Olympic Committee. The clever tinkerers at the Yahoo
Search blog let everyone know they rolled out something new to
help sate the demand for Olympic content.
 
They placed an image carousel in Yahoo Search, set to appear when
querying for Olympic-related photos. Searches for swimmer Michael
Phelps or other Olympians brings forth the available, freshest
photos out of the Yahoo repository.
 
Yahoo's Shortcuts also placed a few handy ones out there to deliver
extra information to searches. Do a query at Yahoo on medal counts,
results, schedules, and get back the most current Olympic details
placed prominently in the search results.

AOL Connects With Socialthing
Doug Caverly | Staff Writer
 
This week, there have been fresh rumors about cutbacks and layoffs
at AOL.  They may or may not be true, but at least one thing hasn't
been removed from the corporate menu: an acquisition of Socialthing.
 
Socialthing is a bring-the-pieces-together site that's often
compared to FriendFeed.  It's quite young, having been founded in
2007, and remains in private beta at the moment.
 
Odds are good the acquisition will affect that last detail.  Matt
Galligan, cofounder and CEO of Socialthing, confirmed the AOL deal
on a company blog, and assured existing users, "We'll continue to
work on Socialthing! developing new features, integrating more
services and building a better back end."

He also added, "[W]e have a really cool opportunity ahead of us to
integrate into some other AOL products that might change the way you
see social aggregation.  AIM is a really big target for us, both on
the aggregation and on the publishing side . . ."
 
One thing neither Galligan nor anyone on AOL's side got into is
Socialthing's price; perhaps after so many layoffs and the $850
million matter involving Bebo, that subject's a little touchy. 
The acquisition may allow AOL to move beyond its stodgy image,
though, so a little outlay seems reasonable.

I am out of time for this week but here is my tip.
Be very careful when next you go to open those emails from unknown senders or from those posing as well-known news media outlets such as CNN.  A few days ago, I accidentally opened one that seemed to come from CNN but when I read the news headline that said that thousands were killed in an earthquake a few hours ago, I immediately grew suspicious and then I exited in a hurry when the email asked me to click on the link below in order to receive more breaking news.

So many of us take the easy way out when it comes to dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression.  We often choose to bury our heads in the sand rather than facing up to what's happening around us and why?  Simply because it's much easier to do this.  However, burying our heads in the sand is not the solution to dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression.  For if we ignore it, it will not go away.  In fact, it will only get worse and if we don't deal with it, it will eventually take possession of our lives.
We are offering you a way to deal with it; our weekly news and headlines.  Please take a few minutes and catch up on how you can deal with stress, anxiety, and depression.
At the business desk, I'm Kerry J Harrison wishing you a happy day.

Question from Heather Shoemaker:  Donna, with the economic crisis upon us now, do you think that people will be thinking twice now before retiring?
Answer:  Heather, definitely so.  The economic down turn is making many pre-retirees think twice before retiring now and with the deepening mortgage crisis, many of our aging baby boomers may now probably have to rethink their retirement plans.  These two factors will probably cause many people to reformat their plans for their golden years and you will probably see some new trends taking place.  Many pre-retirees will probably start to become more nervous about having enough income to retire on.  I think that the article that I have chosen below will give you a better picture.

I am out of time for this week but before I leave you, here is my tip of the week.
With more and more emphasis being placed on increasing food shortages around the world, there is a growing cry for chefs to come up with ways to create meals that are economic, nutritious, and healthy.  So, wouldn't be this be the ideal time for a new type of chef to make an entrance on to the cooking scene?
I'm Donna J Jodhan wishing you a terrific day and week ahead.

What should baby boomers really do?

Good day everyone!  I'm Jeff N Marquis at the business desk.
As millions of baby boomers move towards retirement some of the big questions remain:  When should they really retire?  When would be the best time for them to exit the workplace?  Would they have enough money to retire on?  Will the system be able to support their demands and concerns?
All very sobering questions with really no definitive answers.  Up till a year ago, many aging boomers felt good about retiring early but with the present down turn in our economy, positive thoughts have turned into major concerns.  What we all need to do is to keep ourselves informed of what's happening around us and how better to do this than keep abreast of the latest happenings.  So, let us help you to do this.  Take a few minutes to review our news for this week.
At the business desk, I'm Jeff N Marquis wishing you a pleasant day.

Wall Mart's dirty tactics

Good morning!  We at the business desk would like to present you with an article which we feel may be of interest to you in light of our upcoming presidential elections in November.  If the contents of this article is true, then shame on Wall Mart!
We'll let you be the judge.
Have a great weekend.
 
 
Wall Mart remains one of the filthiest employers around ...
 

Wal-Mart denies that it told employees how to vote
By CHUCK BARTELS AND ANNE D'INNOCENZIO,
AP Business Writers
 
Wal-Mart Stores Inc., the world's largest retailer, denied a report Friday
that it had pressured employees to vote against Democrats in November
because of worries that a bill the party supports would make it easier for
workers to unionize.
 
The measure, called the Employee Free Choice Act, would allow labor
organizations to unionize workplaces without secret ballot elections. It was
co-sponsored by Barack Obama, the presumed Democratic presidential
candidate, and opposed by John McCain, the presumed Republican nominee.
 
A report in The Wall Street Journal said the Bentonville, Ark.-based
discounter - which has rigorously resisted being unionized - had held
mandatory meetings with store managers and department supervisors in recent
weeks to warn that if Democrats take power in November, they would likely
push through the bill, which the company says would hurt workers.
 
Wal-Mart spokesman Dave Tovar told The Associated Press that the company did
discuss the bill with its employees, including what it sees as the negative
impact, and noted that the company's stand on the legislation is no secret.
 
"We believe the Employee Free Choice Act is a bad bill and we have been on
the record as opposed to it," he said.
 
But he said the company wasn't advocating that its employees vote against
backers of the legislation.
 
"If anyone representing Wal-Mart gave the impression... they are wrong and
acting without approval," said Tovar. In fact, he said that Wal-Mart has
been working with both Republicans and Democrats.
 
"Half of our (political action committee) contributions are to members of
each party," Tovar said. "We regularly educate our associates on issues
which impact our company, and this is an example of that."
 
The reported actions by Wal-Mart raised concerns among labor groups that the
company, the nation's largest private employer with 1.4 million workers, has
the power to exert influence in the elections.
 
"They're trying to bully the American political" scene, said Stewart Acuff,
assistant to the president of the AFL-CIO, the nation's largest labor
organization.
 
Wal-Mart may also be on thin ice as federal election rules allow businesses
to push for specific political candidates to shareholders, executives and
salaried managers, while prohibiting such actions for hourly workers, which
typically include department supervisors.
 
The Wall Street Journal cited about a dozen unidentified Wal-Mart employees
who had attended such meetings in seven states as saying they were told that
employees at unionized shops would have to pay big union dues while not
receiving any benefits in return.
 
Furthermore, workers said they were told that unionization would mean job
losses as costs rise, according to the report. The report said the Wal-Mart
human resource managers who held the meetings didn't specifically tell the
employees how to vote, but made it clear that a Obama victory would mean
unionization.
 
Wal-Mart Watch, a union-backed group that has criticized the company for
what it calls skimpy pay and benefits and poor treatment of its workers,
said in a statement that the article "demonstrates once again that Wal-Mart
intimidates its workers." The group, which supplied some of the sources to
The Wall Street Journal, said the stories cited in the article are
"consistent" with numerous reports it has received in the past week.
 
The development deals a blow to Wal-Mart's reputation just as the company
has started seeing its image improve and criticism diminish as it works to
improve
benefits and push through its "Save money, live better" campaign.
 
In a session with reporters after the company's annual shareholders meeting
in June, Wal-Mart President and CEO Lee Scott said Wal-Mart was comfortable
working with either presidential candidate. In the past, Wal-Mart had lined
up with the Republicans. But the company's message of environmental
sustainability, its program to offer $4 prescription drugs and improved
benefits for workers helped move the company to the political center.
 
"We stand ready to work with the new Congress and whoever is elected
(president)," Tovar said Friday.
 
Anne D'Innocenzio reported from New York. Associated Press Writer Ann Sanner
in Washington contributed to this report.

How to conquer those hackers and identity thieves

Hi everyone!  I'm Heather DeMarco at the business desk.
Today I would like to issue a dire warning and I hope that you take my advice and do something before it's too late. 
Identity thieves and hackers have started to step up their prowls and attacks.  They have been on the prowl and attack for too long now but with a worsening economy and more precariousness in several sectors, they are using it as a cover to plan and execute their devious mindlessness.  I really hope that you are paying attention and the one way by which you can help yourself is for you to become more aware of ways to safeguard your computer both at home and at the office.
Please take a few minutes this week to review our headlines and tidbits.
At the business desk, I'm Heather DeMarco wishing you a great day.

Answer:  Kelly,  There are advantages and disadvantages for reversed mortgages.  If you have expenses to deal with or if you anticipate having to incur expenses for such things as long term care, then a reversed mortgage may be for you.  If you are contemplating doing something such as taking that longed-for world tour or a luxurious cruise, then a reversed mortgage may be for you.  If you have no beneficiaries to leave your home to, then a reversed mortgage may be for you.  However, I would caution you to think carefully before taking the step to acquire a reversed mortgage.  Please read the article below that I have chosen for you.

Question from Robin Golding:  Is it really true or just a myth that our worsening economy is responsible for a growing crisis when it comes to depression?
Answer:  Robin, definitely not a myth.  It is a reality and a truth and I urge you to read the article below that I have chosen for you.  Our worsening economy is not just causing problems at the pumps or in the supermarkets or at the banks.  It is also causing problems with our mental health.  With a worsening economy come the challenges of having to deal with more stress, anxiety, and depression.  A worsening economy brings additional challenges of having to deal with more expensive resources and less disposable income.  A crunch in the pocket book also means a crunch of our mental health.  I hope that my reference helps.

I am running out of time for this week but before I leave you here is my tip of the week.
Having difficulty finding things for your kids to do over the summer?  Well, how about getting them involved in learning how to cook.  The way I look at it, if you develop their interests and talents in cooking at an early age, the benefits may be many when they become adults.  You may be just giving them a huge head start in careers such as:  Becoming dieticians, caters, health and dietary  consultants, and chefs.  Yes, those much in demand chefs of the future!
 
At the business desk, I am Donna J Jodhan wishing you a terrific day and week ahead.

The effects of exitting baby boomers

Good day everyone!  I'm Jeff N Marquis at the business desk.
Thousands of baby boomers have already started to exit the workplace and this exodus is only going to swell in numbers in the next few years.  Like it or not, this mass stampede for the exits is bound to have an adverse effect on not just the workplace, but on many other sectors of our society. 
For one thing, our health system is going to be asked to take on more demands for services.  For another, companies of all types and services are going to be asked to provide enhanced services and yet another thing is that our governments are going to be faced with many challenges when it comes to producing products, services, and resources. 
We need to become more efficient and responsive to what baby boomers and retirees are seeking and in light of this, may I suggest that you start reading our weekly news for seniors, retirees, and aging baby boomers.
At the business desk, I'm Jeff N Marquis wishing you a pleasant day.

Announcements
 
We would like to congratulate our accessibility team for a job well done!  Our accessibility team recently completed a project to design and develop the www.braille200.ca website.  This project was carried out in conjunction with the CNIB and Sterling Creations would like to thank the CNIB for having chosen our company to work with them.  Special thanks to Barbara Marjeram and Don Lawrence of the CNIB.
 
We would also like to congratulate our research and writing teams for their recent successes in winning two large and exciting projects in Britain.  These projects will include working with clients to research and ghost write fiction books on very interesting topics and it is expected that these projects will last for at least the next year.
 
Not to be outdone!  Hats off to our president Donna J Jodhan for her recent success in winning an article writing contest that was sponsored by T-Base Communications of Ottawa.  Donna's submission was entitled "Making Important Decisions with Outdated Information"!  Donna's article was entered into the access to information category and if you would like to read the winning submission then please contact us at info@sterlingcreations.ca.
 
Sterling Creations is also pleased to announce that after almost three years, it has finally successfully managed to settle a Human Rights complaint against Statistics Canada.  This matter involved a complaint against Statistics Canada for having refused to allow a blind applicant to write their exam in Braille.  The Sterling Creations staff worked very hard to support its client in their complaint and is relieved that a settlement has finally been reached.
 
Upcoming projects!  An exciting venture with our U.S office to design and develop ways to create more awareness of the needs of seniors and persons with special needs.  This project has the potential to involve several large companies and more details will be forthcoming in our next newsletter.

Taking the next important step

Greetings everyone!  I'm Jayna Sheffield at the business desk.
It's Friday and the end of another week and the beginning of a brand new month.
So, are you ready to do some soul searching?  Ready to admit to yourself that you are now ready to take a very important step in your life?  One that will help to make things better for you and your family?  One that can potentially bring you a lot of financial and personal satisfaction?
No, I am not talking about spending your money foolishly!  Not talking about making unwise investments.  Not even talking about playing the lottery.  I am talking about doing something logical, safe, and sensible. but you must be grumbling to yourself that you just don't know what I'm talking about.
Fine, then please, read our headlines and tidbits below.  Take a few minutes to check them out and allow your imaginations to take it all in.
I'm Jayna Sheffield wishing you a great and wonderful weekend.
 
Before I give you the great news of the week, I'll give you our Amazon picks.
