Established restoration company opens their newest location.

Markham, Ontario, Canada (PRUnderground) August 17th, 2017

Jonathan Christensen, Vice President of Franchise Development for GUS (www.gus.ca) is proud to announce the continued expansion of Hudson Restoration (http://hudsonrestoration.com) with the addition of their newest location in the Muskoka region. This marks the third territory for the expert team at Hudson Restoration, who have been providing high-quality disaster restoration services to the Toronto, and Markham areas since the company’s inception in 2010.

Hudson Restoration is a full-service provider, equipped to deal with fire/smoke, water, and wind damage with rapid emergency response times. Additionally, they specialize in bio hazard and environmental remediation and have skillfully completed multiple heritage restoration projects in the Greater Toronto area to critical acclaim. With over 30 years of experience in the insurance loss industry, President Steve Hudson brings a wealth of knowledge and skill to the table, specializing in upscale residential and large commercial/industrial property loss. And it’s a family affair: working alongside him in Operations is his right-hand man – his son Nick, who is committed to ensuring his father’s vision is realized. 

Steve Hudson comments, “It has long been a dream of ours to open a location in the beautiful and much sought-after Muskoka region, and we couldn’t be happier to see that dream come to fruition. It’s been a fantastic experience working with the great team at GUS who have helped us make this exciting new venture possible. Becoming part of their extensive network has opened up additional opportunities that have helped us achieve our goal of further expanding our business and reaching more people.” 

Nick Hudson adds, “Our partnership with GUS has given us the means to launch our business into this next phase of its evolution. Their support has been instrumental to our success and has made the process of opening a new branch that much smoother. We are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to bring to the residents of Muskoka our high standards of customer service and dedication to our craft.” 

Ethan Smith, Director of Business Development for GUS comments, “I have had the pleasure of working directly with Steve Hudson and his dedicated team at Hudson Restoration, and have witnessed firsthand their passion for helping people affected by devastating losses. Their craftsmanship is second to none, and their professionalism and integrity reflect the GUS banner well. I have no doubt that the newest location of Hudson Restoration will come to exceed all expectations and greatly benefit the Muskoka community.” 

Jonathan Christensen, Vice President of Franchise Development for GUS said, “This is the perfect next step for the Hudson Restoration team. To open the third territory in Ontario is a testament to their high level of expertize, hard work, and a strong commitment to customer satisfaction. We are excited for their latest venture and confident in their ongoing success as they continue to exemplify the GUS brand and grow their business into new markets.”

Damon Norko’s Dystopian Wasteland Of The Levee Will Make You Appreciate Your Next Glass Of Water

20-year-old Darren Dwyer finds that coming of age is complicated in a world is caught between dystopia and utopia, stability and disorder, and complacency and rebellion.

Southern United States (PRUnderground) August 17th, 2017

The Levee. It was an artificial slope that rose up from the outskirts of town, a looming, man-made berm that went on for kilometers from north to south, an ancient monument that was part of the landscape of the town, part of its daily life, part of its collective memory. It was still called the levee, even though a century had passed since it had actually functioned as such . . .

After global warming, after droughts and famine and wars and strife, humanity has settled down at the bottom of the sea.  Only there is no sea.  But there is life, such as it is, in a world caught somewhere between utopia and dystopia, between the haves and the have-nots, and between those who make the right decisions and those who do not.  For Darren Dwyer, this complexity becomes underscored when he encounters Lori, a former high school classmate.  Old feelings are rekindled, as well as old resentments.

The tinny clinks of her bracelet had shattered the stillness of the night that they had spent together out on the wasteland beyond the grounds of her estate. There had been a party, which Darren hardly remembered, and he and Lori had slipped out together to go ‘exploring’. But they had explored far more than the barren land. They had stumbled upon an immense, flat boulder still warm from the day’s heat, and had climbed atop. Huffing and puffing, a little scratched and bruised, the two of them had lain down together to catch their breaths. There, on their own private mesa, they had spent the night plotting the course of human events, marveling at the stars, and discussing the wonders of the universe. And in a moment of mutual inspiration, they had shared water…

Reminded again that Lori is ‘out of his league,’ Darren becomes determine to break out of his work-a-day existence and to shake free from the social mores that kept the two of them apart.  The hero gets the girl, right?  Now, if Darren could only figure out how to be a hero . . . his search leads him to discover more about himself and his world.

Darren suddenly felt very small. He was surrounded by powerful forces — the world was closing in upon him, forcing his every move. He was helpless to control things. He could only move, step-by-step, toward his destiny.

The Levee, Damon Norko’s off-beat tale of romance and rebellion, is equal parts humor, pathos, irony and social awareness that will appeal to anyone who has considered the future of our world and our role in it.  It is a must-read for the generation who is coming of age at this critical time in our history.

Copies of The Levee are available at all major booksellers, including Black Rose Writing, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble

Print and Electronic review copies available upon request

The Explosion of Automotive E-Commerce and Digital Marketing Certification (Rico Glover)

The rapidly evolving automotive industry is heralding in a brand new generation of marketing needs and demands

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (PRUnderground) August 17th, 2017

Automotive marketing expert and Certified Digital Marketer Rico Glover recently discussed the rapid changes being seen in the automotive marketing environment.

“The old internet techniques and tools for car dealerships have changed. Digital dealers are focused on delivering proven, trackable, and repeatable plans and not theories with outdated information. Certified Automotive Digital Marketers are needed,” said Glover.

Glover, who is regarded as the “Social Media Superman” by many of his peers and clients, has worked with Bryan Honda in Fayetteville, North Carolina, to shatter sales records via leading-edge digital marketing strategies.

Glover notes that digital marketing strategies and e-commerce is on the rise in the automotive world. For instance, General Motors has unrolled the Shop-Click-Drive program. The platform offers convenient online shopping, all-inclusive pricing, and trade-in value estimates. Ford is now making it possible for some customers to purchase and even finance their vehicles online. Once the customer has completed the online portion, they simply visit the dealership to sign paperwork and pick up their new car.

DigitalMarketer is helping to guide marketers in the digital dealer revolution. The company has been featured in a Forbes article, “Why Digital Marketing Certifications Are Key to Marketing Professionals”. The company has just released a 12-week instructor led course that offers digital marketing certification specifically for automotive industry professionals.

ContentAndCommerceSummit2017 will be offering insight for digital dealers, as well.

Glover is the president of the Automotive Digital Marketing Association, in addition to being a DigitalMarketer Certified Trainer. He will be at ContentAndCommerceSummit2017, where guests can expect premier training which will feature one of the fastest growing e-commerce companies in the U.S., Jet.com. The company was recently acquired by WalMart, a move that has shaken the foundation of the brick-and-mortar platform that was long-favored by retailers. Now, more and more retailers – and digital dealers – are recognizing the true potential and consumer favorability of e-commerce.

ContentAndCommerceSummit2017.com and CertifiedAutomotiveDigitalMarketer.com are game changers for car dealers looking to maintain and grow their customer base during the automotive e-commerce explosion,” said Glover.

Freedom House Benefit Concert to Support Bay Area Human-Trafficking Survivors

Celebrated Teen Pianist John Baeg to Perform on Saturday, August 26, in Los Altos

Burlingame, CA (PRUnderground) August 17th, 2017

Freedom House, a leading provider of safe housing and aftercare services to human-trafficking survivors in the San Francisco Bay Area, announced plans for a benefit recital by celebrated teen pianist John Baeg, a Cupertino resident who currently studies at The Juilliard School in New York. The performance is set for Saturday, August 26, at 2:00 p.m., at Bridges Community Church, located at 625 Magdalena Avenue in Los Altos.

A musician since age 3, John, now 15, was named Most Promising Young Talent, Best Bay Area Contestant, and first-prize winner at the 12th International Russian Music Piano Competition. He also won first prizes at the Menuhin-Dowling Piano Competition for Young Musicians and at the Music Teachers National Association Competition in San Francisco in 2011. After making his concerto debut with the El Camino Youth Symphony in 2012, John performed in Carnegie Hall as a gold-medal recipient in the American Association for Development of the Gifted and Talented Competition, and went on to make his solo debut recital in the Kumho Arts Prodigy Concert Series in Seoul, Korea.

As a winner of the Juilliard Concerto competition in 2015, John was invited to perform with the Juilliard Pre-College Symphony. Previously studying piano with Heidi Hau as a scholarship student at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, John now has the distinction of studying with Yoheved Kaplinsky, the chair of Juilliard’s piano department.

Tickets are $20 for adults and $10 for children under 12. A reception for the artist immediately follows the performance. Tickets may be purchased at the door before the concert. Advance tickets also are available online at www.FreedomHouseSF.org/Events.

Prestigious Design Resource LogoLounge Publishes Logos from Three Woodbury Graphic Design Students

Acceptance of Three Submissions is First for University’s Graphic Design Program; Logos to Appear in LogoLounge Book 10

LOS ANGELES, CA (PRUnderground) August 17th, 2017

If logos are organizational signatures expressed as art, Woodbury University’s Graphic Design program has reached the pinnacle of that corner of the design world – times three — with the imminent publication of a trio of student creations in LogoLounge Book 10, the bible of the industry, the university announced today.  

Book 10 marks the first time Woodbury has had as many as three contributions in a single volume; no previous edition included more than one logo from a Woodbury student.  All three students – graduates of the Class of 2016 – are now gainfully employed in the design field.  In addition to hardcopy publication, an electronic, fully indexed version of LogoLounge Book 10 will be available online.

Sara Lind, creator of a logo for Lake Arrowhead in San Bernardino County, is now a Junior Graphic Designer at Guess in Los Angeles.  Courtney Omahen (nee Wolf), who designed a logo for Bodhi Brewing Company, is currently a Graphic Designer at Warner Brothers Consumer Products in Burbank.  And Trevor McHugh, who created a personal mark featuring a bespectacled fox, is now a Graphic Designer at Messex Industries, an event branding company also in Burbank.

“Our hats are off to Sara, Courtney and Trevor – their accomplishment truly is unprecedented for the university’s Graphic Design program and speaks volumes about their individual creativity and prospects as design professionals,” said Behnoush McKay, M.F.A., Graphic Design chair in Woodbury’s School of Media, Culture and Design. “Logo development is a special, refined artform, and logos can convey so much about brand and corporate identity.  For recent grads to join this global community of logo designers as peers is a tribute to each of them.”

Formed in 2002, LogoLounge (logolounge.com) serves a community of designers who are deeply engaged in logo design, its history and its future.  The projects in every LogoLounge book are selected for their quality, timeliness, relevance, and inspirational nature.  LogoLounge seeks to create an effective mix of large and smaller firms, geographies, budgets, and client types.      The submission process is both competitive and highly selective; each book features the most recent top 2,000 logos selected by industry judges and organized according to trends and keywords.

Woodbury’s Graphic Design program grants a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, which is included in the university’s accreditation by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).   The BFA is a professional degree, which translates to a top education resulting in strong, competitive student portfolios that stand out in the graphic design industry.  Woodbury students consistently win international and national design awards, and have achieved recognition in entertainment design, web design, advertising design, package design, photography, identity design and environmental graphics.

Small class size allows individual attention from the professional faculty and educational experiences both inside and outside of the classroom, which provides students with the ability to create effective and engaging visual communication solutions.  The program has gained a reputation for graduating top quality designers ready to take their place in the profession.

About Woodbury University

Founded in 1884, Woodbury University is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Southern California.

Delta County Memorial Hospital Nurse Named Colorado Health Care Star

Award Recognizes Janel Webb at Delta County Memorial Hospital as a Health Care Professional Making a Difference

AURORA, CO (PRUnderground) August 17th, 2017

American Sentinel University and the Colorado Hospital Association (CHA) named Janel Webb, RN, BSN, ICU/Clinical Education, ICU Manager at Delta County Memorial Hospital as a Colorado Health Care Stars Award winner. This award recognizes Webb as an exceptional health care professional.

Colorado Health Care Stars is a statewide health care professional award recognition program sponsored by American Sentinel University and CHA. The program was launched in February 2015 to acknowledge industry professionals in Colorado who exceed expectations in the delivery of health care.

Webb’s supervisor, Jody Roeber, Chief Clinical Officer at Delta County Memorial Hospital says Webb has helped Delta Hospital develop a comprehensive clinical education program in addition to her duties as ICU manager.

Roeber says Webb is a remarkable nurse.

“Janel’s accomplishments at Delta Hospital are far reaching in just the past year,” says Roeber. “She offers monthly mock codes and rotates them through different departments throughout the hospital. If a department manager feels their staff needs additional training, they refer to the mock code.”

Roeber says Webb has been instrumental in the development of staff to offer the hospital’s Advanced Cardiac Life Support and Basic Life Support courses and the hospital no longer needs to outsource those services.

Webb is the lead instructor for these classes, and the hospital receives rave reviews about how they cater to the hospital’s needs.

“Janel is an excellent role model for her staff, promotes safety and excellence in care and demonstrates excellent technical skills and compliments that with her compassion and kindness of manner,” says Roeber. “She’s a true leader in our hospital, and we are honored to name her our health care star.”

“Janel Webb is an inspiration to nursing. Her tireless energy, dedication to her peers, compassion and kindness and ability to lead make her an outstanding role model,” says Chris Wolfe, Vice President of Partner Relations and Program Strategy at American Sentinel University. “It’s an honor to name Janel a Colorado Health Care Star and recognize her valuable leadership at Delta County Memorial Hospital.”
