Community involvement program

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, October 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Member airlines of SkyTeam, the global airline alliance, participated in the recent Aids Walk Los Angeles as part of its community involvement program.

Over 50 volunteers from SkyTeam’s US Market Coordinating Committee (MCC) joined thousands of other participants in Aids Walk Los Angeles which, in its 34 years, have raised more than $ 82 million from hundreds of thousands of supporters.

This is part of SkyTeam’s corporate social responsibility initiative, which seeks to contribute its efforts and funds to worthy causes in the local communities in which their members operate. Last year, the alliance provided volunteers and donated funds to Habitat for Humanity Los Angeles, helping build four homes in the process.

This year’s Aids Walk LA was a resounding success, as in previous years, with over 10,000 walkers joining the event, which also included entertainment by many celebrities before and after the 6 mile walk.

Funds raised through Aids Walks Los Angeles provides funding to APLA Health, a community-based health center caring for historically underserved communities and those affected by HIV in Los Angeles County, as well as 20 other HIV/AIDS service organizations.

Nelson Silberberg Inspires Travelers through Volunteer Efforts in South Africa

Nelson Silberberg

Nelson Silberberg

As a world-traveler, Nelson Silberberg's main goal is to help people in need and inspiring others along the way.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Nelson Silberberg has worked hard to get to where he is currently in his life. Being born in the Dominican Republic and fighting to become a first-generation Floridian, life was not always perfect for Silberberg. However, that never dissuaded him from following his dreams and becoming a Chief Financial Officer. Silberberg loves his job and is thankful for the security it provides him.

Yet, instead of being complacent with his wealth, Nelson Silberberg has become a world traveler. Silberberg often takes trips to Thailand, Vietnam, and South Africa. Although, these trips are not for pleasure, or at least the type of lavish experience one might imagine. No, Silberberg visits these areas to help stave off the overbearing water crisis. He has worked diligently, especially in South Africa, to make life better for those who live there.

South Africa Volunteerism

South Africa is a beautiful country. However, much of the area lacks the abundance of resources America and other countries enjoy. People are starving and dying of thirst daily. A lack of food and a lack of clean water decimates the region’s population. Yet, the people there do their best. Many of these people must walk for miles each day, to provide enough water to survive. Never mind eating.

That is why Nelson Silberberg visits this area of the world often to volunteer. Not only does Silberberg appreciate the rich culture of the country, but he also knows he is making a difference. Through his efforts to lessen the water crisis, Silberberg travels to areas in need and helps to provide clean water.

The Water Crisis

The water crisis, or the lack of clean water, affects over 1.1 billion people globally. While insufficient drinking water is the main concern, there is far more to a lack of water than this. Hygiene, in terms of bathing and working toilets, are also luxuries these people do not have. This leads to infection, compounding the issues even more.

Nelson Silberberg works with other volunteers and organizations that spread awareness about the water crisis and help those affected. Whether people travel, spread awareness through information, or donate to the cause, people are understanding the severity of the situation. That means that more voices are speaking out and more funds are going toward clean water projects. Plus, Nelson Silberberg’s work has inspired more traveler to give their time to such a worthwhile cause.

Inspiring Other Travelers

There are many reasons people can have for going to South Africa. Photographers can go to capture beautiful shots and people can explore their heritage. However, instead of simply doing what travelers came to do, because of Nelson Silberberg, they are helping the people. By setting such a good example, Silberberg is inspiring other travelers to go to South Africa and save people’s lives. Being able to help in such a direct way is a great feeling. Nelson Silberberg is making that feeling even better by sharing it with fellow travelers.

In summation, Nelson Silberberg knows what it is like to have to scrape by. Silberberg has never forgotten the horrible feeling of not knowing where the next meal would come from. Fortunately, he was able to escape the vicious cycle that often plagues families in this situation for generations. However, instead of forgetting about the struggles that made him who he is, he dedicates his resources to helping others.

Nelson Silberberg’s actions and advocacy is bringing light to an issue that usually goes unacknowledged. Moreover, it is motivating others, inspiring them to help the people who need it most. Silberberg and others give what they can, time, money, and talent to make the world a better place for everyone.

The Fundamentals of Swinging

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, October 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Whether you’re just starting to explore something new with your significant other, or perhaps have been invited to a swinger’s party with a new Tinder date, it’s important to understand the fundamentals of swinging before getting into the swinger lifestyle. When you’re first getting into the swing of things, it can be intimidating, but always remember that everyone is there for a good time. Try to remember the following steps, and have a good time.

Know what you’re getting into.
Everyone has an idea of what swinging is in their heads, but real life may turn out a bit different. Know that not only are you setting yourself up to possibly have sex with someone other than your date – so are they. It is important to not get jealous.

Establish rules, but be flexible.
You and your date need to establish what is allowed, and what isn’t. For your first few times trying out swinging you may want to try to hit a few doubles or triples before going for the homerun. Keep in mind though that swinging is about passion – so things can get heated, and in the moment maybe you or your SO will want to push boundaries. Be open and expressive. This is will help to keep you both on the same page and having fun.

Dip your toes in first.
It’s a marathon, not a sprint. If you just jump into the lifestyle right away, you or your SO may be overwhelmed. It’s important to start out small and work your way up. Try going to a high-end swinger’s club to get a feel for the atmosphere. From there you can expand your interests and try new things.

Show up early.
If you show up to a party late, you can often find your friends already drinking and having a fun time, while you’re still sober and playing catch up. The same principal applies with swinging. If you show up late, everyone may already be hitting it off, and you’ll feel like a third wheel.

Don’t drink too much.
This is a key step. Whereas a little bit of alcohol can help you relax and get in the mood, a lot can kill your evening. With too much alcohol comes loss of consent, and loss of judgement. You want to avoid being inebriated and belligerent – no one wants to spend their night with that person.

Talk it over.
It is very important to stay open with your partner. Talk about your experience the next day, make sure that you are telling them everything, and listen to them as well. This will help you set expectation for the next time, and help you figure out what each other needs.

Swinging can be an exhilarating experience, but you need to go about it the right way. If you rush into and make the wrong decisions, it make it exponentially harder to try and get into it another time. So start off slow, be open with your partner, and you’ll both be able to enjoy.

Miriam Chesner Explains the Importance of Learning Culture Alongside Being Taught a Language

Miriam Chesner New jersey

New languages are often taught separately to understanding the culture behind the language itself, Language Teacher Miriam Chesner from New jersey points out

MORRIS PLAINS, NEW JERSEY, UNITED STATES, October 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Language education is a staple of classrooms around the world, yet many languages are taught without establishing a deeper, simultaneous understanding of related cultures. According to New Jersey's Miriam Chesner, however, cultural education should be a key component in learning any new language, suggesting that without this understanding, it's impossible to fully embrace what's being taught.

"I believe it should be considered a vital component of learning a new language," says Chesner, a New York University graduate, Spanish teacher, and expert on Latin American culture.

Failure to learn about the country or countries from which a particular language originates, she adds, such as its history, people, or government, removes a richness of understanding which can make it difficult to fully appreciate how the language works, especially in a day-to-day sense.

Conversely, however, Miriam Chesner also believes that for many people, a more cultural understanding of a language is often developed naturally, sometimes without fully appreciating the fact. "This is especially true," she continues, "where an individual is learning from native speakers – where they're interacting on a personal level, rather than learning solely from textbooks or language applications."

Indeed, some languages are actually considered largely impossible to learn without at least a degree of cultural understanding, including Arabic and Japanese, according to New Jersey-based Mirima Chesner. "Vocabulary and the meaning of many of a language's words are determined by—and dependent upon—culture, and to a fairly large degree in many cases," she adds.

Spanish, for example, Chesner points out, is spoken in numerous countries around the world, and is widely spoken in the U.S., yet variations exist in each of the 20 or so countries where Spanish is the official language. This, she says, as is the case in the U.S., is often largely dependent on local culture.

Language experts such as Chesner suggest that a good place to start, in terms of simultaneously developing an understanding of both a language and the associated culture or cultures, is with proverbs. These, she says, are often a cultural treasure trove, reflecting accumulated wisdom of previous generations. "Because of how they're structured, they're also quite often perfect for honing more precise language skills, too," adds Chesner, wrapping up.

Miriam Chesner is a New York University graduate who holds a master's degree in ESL, or English as a second language. An expert on Latin American culture and a Spanish language teacher, Chesner is currently based in New Jersey.

8 Ways to Reduce Noise in Your Workplace

Does unwanted noise interfere with getting your work done? Read more about the 8 tips to help reduce workplace noise so you can work more efficiently.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, October 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many employees find that a lively, open-office workplace brimming with the sounds of enthusiastic colleagues working together makes for a positive, invigorating place to collaborate on work projects. Yet others strenuously disagree; they find that unwanted office noise interferes with their ability to get productive work done. What to do? We offer eight practical tips on how to establish an office noise reduction program at your workplace that will help make your employees happier and more productive.

For many, today’s dream office has the look-and-feel of a converted warehouse loft — with an industrial look that features natural brick walls, expanses of poured concrete, open fixture lighting systems, as well as exposed pipes and ductwork. Indeed, this office look, which originated with media and tech companies, has become an established trend, as we’ve written about quite a few times. This style of workplace conveys a confident, modern (if not retro) design language that’s especially attractive to Millennials who have unique ideas about how work environments should look (hint: like a hipster coffeehouse). Managers and space planners also like the overall efficiency that these spaces provide: they hold out the promise of flexibility and collaboration-driven innovation. But there can be significant downsides if you are not careful: unless there is proper planning for acoustic comfort, these open office designs, with their hard, noise reflecting surfaces, can wreak havoc on employee satisfaction among those who find extraneous noise to be a productivity deal-breaker.

The issue of unwanted office noise hasn’t gone down quietly. More and more office acoustic “fails” are making the news.

For example, a year after the 935 million-dollar Francis Crick Institute opened in King’s Cross, London, it’s been widely reported that many of the institute’s 1,200 plus scientific researchers and office staff complain that the workplace is simply too noisy for them to concentrate effectively on their research and writing tasks.

Some of the programming developers at Apple have also recently expressed their dissatisfaction with a recent transition into open office spaces at Apple Park — a move that many employees feel favors a push toward noisy collaboration that comes at the expense of intense, quiet concentration.

Whether the unwanted noise situation is brought about by overhearing loud co-worker telephone calls, overly enthusiastic clickety-clack keyboarding, the incessant sounds of office equipment (especially large printers and copiers), or simply the repeated noise of doors opening and closing, it’s having an effect on many of today’s employees.

Research indicates that the most distracting type of noises in the workplace are the unwanted/unrelated conversations that you can’t help but overhear. The mind can’t help but want to tune in and make sense of conversations we can hear, even if it’s as banal as hearing about re-scheduling a babysitter for your colleague’s 10th-anniversary dinner on the evening of the second Tuesday of next month…

So it’s not surprising that a recent Oxford Economics Study found that, given a choice of perks, employees’ first choice was a quiet office environment where they could focus on work. This ranked higher than any other benefit — including some fairly expensive ones, such as free meals at the office or onsite daycare.

The bottom line? Managers need to get on top of this issue by implementing noisy office solutions before they face long-term issues, such as poor worker productivity, lower job satisfaction, and decreased retention rates.

HOW TO KEEP THE WORKPLACE NOISE LEVELS IN CHECK

Let’s look at eight practical ways you can make positive strides in office noise reduction.

1. OFFICE NOISE REDUCTION STARTS WITH CAREFUL SITE SELECTION AND CONSTRUCTION DETAILS

It may be obvious, but a compromised site selection, such as one located near a busy freeway, airport, or industrial facility does not work in your favor. If noisy neighbors can’t be avoided, innovations such as modern window glazing solutions can control how much outside noise enters the building. If you are looking at leasing new office space, you’ll also want to investigate the building’s mechanical systems (such as elevators and HVAC systems) for acoustic pathways, which could introduce unwanted noise into your office space.

If you are building a new facility from scratch, you can start your office noise control program during the design and planning phase. For example, to isolate the sound of conversations between different rooms or floors, acoustic design experts can specify construction materials with enough ‘mass’ to absorb this type of noise. Low vibration noises, such as those emanating from nearby construction sites or street traffic, can be addressed by damping techniques that attenuate sound vibrations; this can be accomplished by using custom materials or applying special glue-like dampening compounds between stiff surfaces, such as drywall or plywood, to make a noise absorbing ‘sandwich.’ Because sound vibrations can travel long distances through the structure of a building, acoustic experts can also specify de-coupling ‘gaps’ in the structure that prevent sound vibrations from moving from one part of the building to another. Finally, absorption materials can be introduced in the interior, such as acoustical ceiling tiles, baffles, carpets, and engineered floors, which we’ll talk about in detail below.

2. ESTABLISHING DEDICATED LOUD AND QUIET ZONES CAN HELP WITH OFFICE NOISE CONTROL

Creating a floor plan that supports inter-space noise control is also very important. Keep areas with noisy office equipment, such as large printers and copiers, away in isolated areas. (This can also help control unwanted indoor ozone pollution produced by these devices as well.) Other high noise areas, such as kitchen messes, cafeterias, and break rooms, also need to be acoustically isolated from work areas. Conference rooms are another obvious example of spaces that are inherently noisy. Restrooms also fall into this category, as do impromptu meeting areas and lobbies.

But what about creating other specific task zones for noisy activities within the core work areas of your office? If you dig a little deeper, there are other opportunities to create specific zones where noise generating activities take place without distracting other workers — for example, why not create convenient “telephone booths” that staff can duck into when they need to make a distracting phone call? (You may recall we highlighted some freestanding “phone booth” designs spotted earlier this year at NeoCon 2017.)

Now, let’s discuss the reverse: the need to build quiet spaces for those workers who need to concentrate with maximum attention, e.g. those working “in the zone.” Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, promotes the idea that many of us “introverts” have to have quiet spaces to work in order to remain productive. Short of creating dedicated private offices for each of these employees (which may not be possible in your budget), one possible solution is to provide quiet hoteling spaces, which can be shared or “checked” in or out of like a hotel room.

Don’t overlook other simple solutions as well. Creating an office convention, such as signage at the entrance to a work area that indicates a request for extra quiet during a project crunch time can help maintain a productive work environment. (Some have even created a lighted sign system to do this.)

3. CUSTOMIZE YOUR FURNITURE TO CONTROL NOISE IN THE WORKPLACE

First a bit of unsettling research.

Workers in enclosed offices are the happiest. But that’s the least economical solution. What about the next best alternative, which presumably would be cubicle furniture systems with high partitions? Aren’t these looked upon more favorably than full, open desking and benching solutions?

Press Releases of Intelligent Protection International Limited

For celebrities and those in the public eye, stalking is a real issue and more so with the growth of social media.

My God, I still have deep-seated resentment that she didn't go to somebody, even the police, and say 'Look, my husbands bought a gun and he says he's going to kill John Lennon”

— The wife of Mark Chapman

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, October 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For celebrities and those in the public eye, stalking is a real issue and more so with the growth of social media.
UK based Intelligent Protection International, a firm that specializes in protecting Royalty, celebrities and Ultra-High-Net-Worth-Individuals feels that more can be done to combat stalking with more awareness of the issue and with security teams being more prepared.

There are many case studies of famous stalkers and of course those cases where the celebrity stalking became fatal.
Is it possible for personal security to detect or deter stalkers?

It is possible to detect a pattern of obsessive or aggressive behavior if you know what you are looking for, and, if communications are recorded in such a way that they can be reviewed.

The “Stalker Threat” can be split into two different groups, known stalkers and unknown stalkers. Let’s take a look at both and how they differ:

Known Stalkers:
Stalkers often come to the attention of the victim or the victim’s security team due to their actions either over a short intense period or over a long period of contact. This contact can be either physical or remote, via mail or online.

It does, of course, require joined up collaboration between the private office managing personal mail, PR office managing social media and the security team to first identify individuals who may pose a threat immediately or in the future. Monitoring of potential stalkers is of vital importance.

It is possible to act fast and obtain legal injunctions and court orders if it is perceived or evidenced that an individual is posing a credible threat.

With the advent of social media, celebrities are far more accessible to the public – you can almost reach out and touch them, you can be noticed by them. This does lead in many cases, to stalkers first being noticed do to persistent, odd or aggressive behavior.

Many stalkers believe that they have a personal relationship with their victim and this often leads to jealousy and in extreme cases, the stalker feeling that if they cannot have their idol, then no-one can.

Unknown Stalkers:
The major issue with unknown stalkers id that while they may have limited if no contact at all with their target, the tend to be at the adverse end of the stalking cycle when their presence is detected – that is to say that they may have been obsessing for a very long time and may have been planning an initial “physical contact” with their chosen victim for a considerable amount of time.

Often the first time that staff or the intended victim become aware of this type of Stalker is when they are in the process of acting out their fantasy. They might have at this stage entered the grounds of a property, gained access to a residence or such like.

At this point, things can go one of two ways, either the Stalker will be identified as a threat, or they will not be identified until it is too late.

A good example of this type of behavior is the case involving Sandra Bullock stalker Joshua Corbett. The star had no idea that he had been waiting for some days outside her home and that he planned to sexually assault the star. Lucky for Sandra Bullock she herself was able to raise the alarm while hiding in a bedroom closet.

In many cases, the only fire sure way or combating the unknown stalker threat is to ensure that you have adequate security including of course bodyguards. Joshua Corbett in his court case made a point for discussing the lack of security that Bullock has in place at her home. Good security will go a long way in deterring physical contact and great security should detect threats as they manifest themselves.

Police action against stalkers
It is not always easy to get the Police Forces to take action against stalkers. There are many documented cases worldwide where stalkers have been reported to the Police and the they have taken little or no action, either aggravating the situation or prolonging the action of stalking, before coming to a conclusion – a conclusion that often involves a violent confrontation between the victim and the stalker.

It is of vital importance that any contact between a stalker and his intended victim be recorded and that those managing a stars private life, from the PR team and Private Office to the security team all work in unison to ensure that potential threats do not go missed.

A winning and attractive brand is key to drawing in new clients and should be consistent throughout your business plan to demonstrate professionalism. This includes things such as your name, slogan, color palette, and should be geared towards the type of client you’d like to attract.

Build your website

According to Carolin Soldo, your website is one of your most important tools for attracting your clients. It ties in with both your brand and your niche, and is essentially the first calling card which clients will see when they try to contact you. It should include a no-nonsense description of who you are and what you offer, contact details, as well as a comprehensive blog with useful content. This will give customers a reason to keep visiting your site, and increase the likelihood of turning those clicks into paying customers.

Guinevere de Amblia of Edge Walker Life Coaching to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

PORTLAND, OREGON, UNITED STATES, October 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Empowerment is the process of discovering and aligning the confidence, strengths and self-determination in your life.

As a transgender woman, Guinevere de Amblia knows the risks of becoming true to one’s self at the deepest level. She speaks from experience when she says, “With a bit of courage, the right kind of support, and yes, some risk, successful change always leads to a rich, fulfilling life.”

When Guinevere transitioned eight years ago, her entire life changed, but she didn’t realize on how many levels. There was the obvious, of course, but her interests changed; what she cared about changed; the depth of how she felt about people changed; but most of all, she became aware of the common struggles we all share.

Today, as the founder of Edge Walker Life Coaching, Guinevere offers an inspiring, lighthearted, results-driven platform for clients who are navigating life’s changes. The idea of transitioning or coming out isn’t limited to sexuality or gender. “Eventually life forces all of us to choose between becoming real, and showing up in our lives, or staying safely—if not miserably— hidden away,” de Amblia says.

As a Certified Whole Person Life Coach, de Amblia has three specialty areas of coaching. The first is professional men and women. Business owners, writers, teachers, creative artists, to name just a few, who are busy and want to manage their time more efficiently, will benefit greatly from de Amblia’s coaching series entitled, “Empower Your Journey in 8 Easy Steps©”. Results include integrated and sustainable decision making—leading to balance in all aspects of her clients’ lives.

De Amblia also offers Whole Person Life Coaching for anyone in the gender questioning or transgender spectrum. Those who are questioning their gender, just starting hormones, are pre-op or post-op, are a transwoman or transman, will gain from de Amblia’s personal experience and training in this process. Her heartfelt style emphasizes holding a safe place for individuals to explore what they are experiencing, so that they can move gently into designing and implementing any actions they may want to take.

There is also a coaching area for “Life Events” in de Amblia’s practice. “At times, certain events take place in our lives that seem devastating. Getting back in the game in a healthy way can make sense of change,” she says. de Amblia has spent a lot of time on her own personal development in the last ten years. “Now there’s nothing about myself that scares me anymore. The world didn’t stop when I embraced who I really am and what I really wanted.” In fact, that acceptance has been wildly empowering, she says. “Helping others regain their personal strength is both an honor and an amazing journey!”

CUTV News Radio will feature Guinevere de Amblia in an interview with Jim Masters on October 25th at 1pm EDT.
