AMCD Supports the Appointment of Heather Nauert as UN Ambassador

Secretary of State Pompeo observes Hearther Nauert in action (Getty images)

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, December 9, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Mideast Coalition for Democracy fully supports President Trump’s pick to replace UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, the intelligent and capable Ms. Heather Nauert.

Ms. Nauert has been a first-rate journalist for many years, working at both Fox News and ABC News and covering a variety of national and international affairs. More recently, Ms. Nauert has proven herself very capable of representing the administration as State Department spokeswoman. In this role, she has worked closely with Secretary Pompeo and earned his trust and confidence as well as that of the President.

“The fact that the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) opposes Nauert’s nomination is proof she is right for the job,” said AMCD co-chair John Hajjar. “CAIR is an arm of the global Muslim Brotherhood operating in the US as a ‘civil rights organization.’ The UAE has designated CAIR a terrorist organization and they have proven links to Hamas. So again, if they are opposed to Nauert’s nomination, that is a good sign.”

”CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups with American blood on their hands,” stated AMCD vice chair, Hossein Khorram. “Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror in the United States and CAIR has opposed every anti-terror measure that has ever been proposed or implemented. Its California chapter actually distributed a poster telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI, and its officials have told Muslims not to cooperate with law enforcement.”

Khorram, himself a Muslim, finds CAIR's silence in condemning terror and not cooperating with FBI totally un-American.

“The Iranian people have endured the implementation of Sharia law by the Islamic Republic, proving it to be a total failure that has brought death and famine to one of the wealthiest countries in the world,” continued Mr. Khorram. “Ms. Nauert comments on Sharia law are based in proven facts that Sharia law is a failure and should never be implemented in any country let alone the United States which is the beacon of democracy in the world – the very antithesis of Sharia Law.”

“Ms. Nauert is well respected in the journalistic community and the diplomatic community in Washington,” added AMCD chair, Tom Harb. “She is poised and unshakable under pressure. We believe she will represent the United States brilliantly at the United Nations.”

“This appointment continues President Trump’s dedication to promoting intelligent and capable women to high-level posts in the administration,” added AMCD Secretary Rebecca Bynum. ‘We applaud this latest example of the administration’s dedication to selection on the basis of talent and merit. Ms. Nauert is a superb choice to fill Ms. Haley’s shoes.”

AMCD lends its full support to this excellent nomination.

Nail Perfection & Spa Wins Ninth Talk Award for Outstanding Customer Satisfaction

Kansas salon Nail Perfection & Spa receives high marks for customer satisfaction, earning it nine straight Talk Awards.

We are a family-owned business that embraces our employees and clients as members of our extended family.”

— Andrew Bui, Salon Coordinator

MISSION, KANSAS, UNITED STATES, December 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Despite its large size and continued growth, Nail Perfection & Spa remains focused on its customers and providing them an outstanding experience every time, demonstrated by its most recent, and ninth consecutive, Talk Award win.

Winners of the Talk Awards are based on The Stirling Center for Excellence’s independent, proprietary research and evaluation system, which identifies businesses with a track record of excellent customer service and satisfaction. The rating system combines data collected from nominations, online and other customer reviews, surveys, blogs, social networks, business-rating services, and other honors and accolades — all of which express the voice of the customer. Only those with a 4- or 5-star rating receive The Talk Award.

Nail Perfection & Spa has served the residents of Mission and the surrounding area since 1995 with nail services, massages, facials and other skin treatments. When the local mall where the salon was housed closed in 2006, the salon took the opportunity to invest in the community and remodeled an old gas station, expanding its capacity and adding day spa services to the growing business. On November 17, the salon expanded its services yet again with the addition of a new building next door to accommodate its spa services.

Nail Perfection & Spa is more than a nail salon and day spa. It’s a refuge that will restore peace of mind and balance of body and spirit with its serene and relaxing environment that cares for the whole person.

“When you’re feeling tense, we are here to provide a revitalizing spa-cation from the hustle and bustle of everyday life,” says Owner Kim Tang.

One of the largest pedicure spas in the Kansas City area, Nail Perfection & Spa has 21 pedicure chairs as well as 24 manicure stations offering the most current services, including the latest in gel and dip powder polishes. Despite the size, which allows the spa to serve large bridal parties and more, customer service is never lost in the shuffle.

“Excellent customer service is our main priority,” says Manager Mike Maniquis. “From the moment you walk in the door, throughout the service that we provide and until you leave, our staff is dedicated to making your time with us enjoyable. Our quality of work is second to none. We realize that clients have many choices when it comes to nail and beauty services, and that's why we strive to create a warm, friendly environment and always put forth our best effort.”

“We are a family-owned business that embraces our employees and clients as members of our extended family,” says Salon Coordinator Andrew Bui. “Many of our clients have been with us since the inception of our business, and watching them grow throughout their life through special occasions is something we cherish whole heartedly.”

“Nail Perfection and Spa is one of the few places that I'm a regular,” says customer Abby P. in her Yelp review. “I live in Fairway, so this conveniently placed salon has always been the obvious choice. I've seen many things come and go from this location over the years and Nail Perfection and Spa has definitely held its ground the longest. I hope that it will continue to do so, but I'm not too worried because literally every single time I go in there, be it on a weekend or a weekday during the slowest times of the year, it is filled with customers. Normally I would complain about price, but the prices here are reasonable and worth what you're getting. The stylists talk with you and make sure you have an enjoyable experience. If for some reason you aren't happy with something, I'm sure they would accommodate. It's great to see a family-owned business thriving in this area and it's a pretty special thing that so many people continue to come back, have certain people they prefer, and show the staff so much love. Or at least that's what I've been witness to! I'd say Nail Perfection & Spa is definitely a point of pride for this area of KC!”

In addition to nine consecutive Talk Awards for outstanding customer satisfaction, Nail Perfection & Spa was awarded “The Best Nail Salon” by The Pitch in 2018.

“The biggest factors that contribute to our success are our consistency in quality and service, and our dedication to our clients,” says Tang. “We realize that without our clients, we would not have the honor of winning the Talk Award, and we are so grateful to be able to continue to bring smiles to our customers’ faces and deliver award-winning service every day.”

Nail Perfection & Spa is located at 5110 Johnson Drive. For more information, call 913-722-0799 or go online to www.nailperfection-spa.com. Visit the company’s Talk Award Page at https://www.thetalkawards.com/award/nail-perfection-and-spa.

In civil law cases, there are proposals pending to address the legal needs of those unable or unwilling to hire a full-fledged Attorney, notes Curt Surls.

there is massive need for some form of representation in civil law areas for vast numbers of the population that are attempting self-representation due to limited access to attorneys”

— Curtis Surls, Employment Lawyer

MANHATTAN BEACH, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 8, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With his review of the emerging "Paraprofessionals" in law, employment attorney Curt Surls has published the next article in his four-part series on the paralegal profession. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Mr. Surls at https://curtsurlsblog.blogspot.com/

A New Trend: “Paraprofessionals” such as Licensed Legal Technicians or “Limited License Legal Technicians”

There is an evolving group of Paralegals that ascend the ranks to act almost like attorneys, similar to Nurse Practitioners who in many cases diagnose and treat health conditions. In civil law cases, there are proposals pending (or already implemented in certain States, as explained below) to address the day-to-day legal need of those unable or unwilling to hire a full-fledged Attorney. This includes the commonplace legal needs of low to moderate-income people by authorizing limited practice by licensed non-lawyers, now known as “paraprofessionals.” This is easy to understand. Many procedures or applications are difficult to understand for “normal” people who are not exposed to them on a daily basis. For example, even forms provided by Courts to make certain filings simpler and possibly enable people to file the forms or applications themselves without the assistance of an Attorney are quite difficult to understand that at least some explanation is still required. This concept has been gradually gaining acceptance. Unlike Paralegals, such paraprofessionals provide services without the direct supervision of an attorney. At this point, two state supreme courts have embraced the “licensed legal technician” concept, and other jurisdictions are closely monitoring its viability.

Given the high percentage of self-represented parties in courtrooms around the country, some advocates believe regulated legal paraprofessionals (charging lower fees) can help narrow the access-to-justice gap. That may one day be the case, but the paraprofessional model and its efficacy in addressing this disparity remain unproven, and ethical rules prevent such a system at least at present.

Washington State pioneered the “limited license” model. In 2013, after years of study, the Washington State Supreme Court adopted the concept of the “Limited License Legal Technician” (LLLT) to perform specific legal services in the area of domestic relations. LLLTs are subject to stringent requirements, which include obtaining an Associate’s degree or higher and completing additional specified coursework; performing 3,000 hours of Paralegal work; passing three law and ethics exams, as well as a character and fitness review. Further, they must also complete a licensing program, satisfy financial responsibility requirements, as well as continuing legal education, and meet malpractice insurance requirements. LLLTs are subject to rules of professional conduct and a disciplinary process similar to those that apply to attorneys. The Board that oversees the LLLT program is now considering expanding the subject matter areas in which paraprofessionals may practice to include consumer debt law.

Several other U.S. States are now following this example. The scope of permissible work for “limited license” paraprofessionals differs under these various models that have been proposed. It generally includes assistance to clients in understanding legal proceedings and completing court forms and other form documents, but does not include appearing for a client in court or at depositions, or taking on complex legal matters. For example, LLLTs in Washington currently may not represent a client in mediated negotiations, but they may do so in Utah.

One of the main reasons for this development is the realization that there is massive need for some form of representation in civil law areas for vast numbers of the population that are attempting self-representation due to limited access to attorneys (mostly due to financial restraints). This is in spite of legal aid societies as well as significant pro bono attorney services. A large number of individuals continue to represent themselves in these areas and could benefit from paraprofessionals.

This access-to-justice disparity has prompted State Bars and court systems to promote other forms of nonlawyer assistance to pro se parties, including courthouse navigators and facilitators (examples are Arizona, New York, California, and Washington), and legal document preparers (Arizona, California, and Nevada). Many other States are looking into other forms of permissible assistance (“judicially-authorized-and-regulated legal service providers”) to help address the problem of unmet legal needs.

The Paralegal Role in the Legal Profession

In general, Paralegals are qualified to perform their responsibilities by completing an educational program, receiving training on the job, or through actual work experience. They do not undergo the rigorous training of Attorneys, nor are they licensed like attorneys. Paralegals sometimes perform “legal” work that otherwise would be done by attorneys. However, the supervising Attorneys remain fully responsible for any legal work delegated to a Paralegal and must always supervise the Paralegal’s work. There are several different types of Paralegals, the designation depends upon the required education and training. Examples are:

“Certified Paralegal”

A Certified Paralegal is a Paralegal who has completed the voluntary certification process of a professional association by developing a specified level of professional competency. The various accreditation bodies include: The National Association of Paralegals (NALA) which awards the designation of CP (Certified Paralegal) and CLA (Certified Legal Assistant) to those who meet their specific requirements and complete the competency examination. NALA also governs certain Advanced Specialty Certifications (CLAS) programs, and there also exist certain state-specific advanced competency exams.

“Registered Paralegal”

The National Federation of Paralegal Associations (NFPA) awards the designation Registered Paralegal (RP) to persons who have met its requirements, which requires passing a specific competency examination known as the Paralegal Advanced Competency Exam (PACE).

“Professional Paralegal”

The National Association for Legal Professionals (NALS) awards the Professional Paralegal (PP) certification designation which reflects a proficiency in procedural law, substantive law and an overall commitment to a higher standard of conduct and professionalism. NALS' Professional Paralegals may distinguish themselves further by earning Specialty Certifications in various substantive law areas.

Armenia visits Shema Kolainu to Share Autism Education Successes

From Left-Right: Suri Gruen, Program Director and Gili Rechany, Educational Director at Shema Kolainu, Marine Yengoyan, Educational Director and Narine Vardanyan, General Director of ICDC in Armenia, and Dr. Joshua Weinstein, Founder of Shema Kolainu.

Leaders from Shema Kolainu-Hear Our Voices met with Armenian representatives to continue the initiatives to globalize autism treatment programs.

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — On December 5th, 2018, Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices hosted a meeting with two representatives from the International Child Development Center (ICDC), an NGO in Armenia.

Ms. Narine Vardanyan, General Director of ICDC, and Ms. Marine Yengoyan, Educational Director of ICDC, shared the progress that Armenia made in providing resources and facilities to care for children with autism. “We’re still a country that needs support on the autism instruction very much,” said Ms. Yengoyan.

While attending the 2014 ICare4Autism International Autism Conference in New York, NY, Ms. Vardanyan met Dr. Joshua Weinstein, founder, and CEO of Shema Kolainu-Hear Our Voices. Ms. Vardanyan and Ms. Yengoyan were invited to participate in a six-week training session at Shema Kolainu school in Brooklyn, which helped them gather insights and methods used in the United States to treat children with autism in educational settings. They returned to Armenia with newfound initiatives that they soon implemented in their educational system.

Based on the first visit to Shema Kolainu, the ICDC created an occupational and sensory room in its center, which enables the utilization of a more impactful, hands-on approach into the ICDC’s methodology. Through techniques such as one on one therapy, the ICDC helps children with autism to improve their social skills.
Ms. Vardanyan and Ms. Yengoyan shared insights about their visits to other American schools and programs, which serve individuals with autism. Ms. Vardanyan emphasized that using the Shema Kolainu as a model school helps to increase advocacy efforts on improving the training and care for children with disabilities. She added, "Your model of the school is now ours."

Shema Kolainu pledged their assistance to the ICDC and to support their expanding efforts in Armenia. The ICDC had already accomplished a significant amount of progress in the ways and methods that are used to work with children with autism in Armenian school settings. Much of their successes are due to the inspiration and continued friendship with Shema Kolainu. Both parties expressed their interest and enthusiasm to organize interactive workshops or the joint conference that could benefit professionals and families of children with autism.

Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices is a nonprofit, nonpublic school for children with autism and related developmental disabilities. The school was founded in 1998 by Dr. Joshua Weinstein, PhD., M.B.A, in response to the growing need in the New York metropolitan area’s education system for programs that effectively fill the learning and emotional requirements of children with autism. Today, Shema Kolainu is a model school for educational facilities across the nation. It is also utilized by the International Center for Autism Research & Education (ICare4Autism) as an example of the educational establishment that responds to the voices of the children and families that strive to achieve their full potential for independence, productivity, and inclusion in their communities.

Grown Rogue Wins Highest THC % and Highest Terpenes % at Grow Classic

We are incredibly proud of our cultivation team for the best in class flower that they consistently produce.”

— Obie Strickler

MEDFORD, OR, USA, December 7, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Grown Rogue took home top honors from the Grow Classic held in Eugene, OR last weekend. The company was one of 31 elite growers from across the state of Oregon who entered the three-category competition, in which Grown Rogue took first place for Highest THC %, first place for Highest Terpenes % and third place in Growers Choice.

"Grown Rogue is honored to accept these awards from among the best growers in the state,” said Grown Rogue Co-Founder and CEO, Obie Strickler. “We are incredibly proud of our cultivation team for the best in class flower that they consistently produce. It is very gratifying to have this competition validate the quality we have strived so hard to achieve."

Grown Rogue’s Head Cultivator, Ken Cobb, said, “The Grow Classic is a true grower’s event that brings together an amazing group of cultivators. There was a lot of camaraderie in the room, and we left feeling blessed and appreciative to be among such a great group of people. We want to thank Grow Magazine; this was definitely one of the cooler events we’ve been to and we look forward to participating again next year.”

Grow Classic is an invitation-only competition hosted by Grow Magazine each November and bills itself as The Quintessential Cannabis Horticulture Competition. Thirty-one growers were provided with four clones from the same cultivar from the same mother plant, and invited to grow the best plants possible. For the Growers Choice award, only the participating growers themselves are the judges with blind labeled products– so there are no paid or potentially biased judges. The event awarded $15,000 in cash and over $5,000 in prizes to the winners.

Grown Rogue produces top quality flower, innovative nitrogen-sealed pre-rolls and extracts including oils, shatter, sugar and wax all classified according to experiences reflected in the name ROGUE – Relax, Optimize, Groove, Uplift and Energize.
