Somebody Good, Inc. Hires Maura Murphy-Barrosse as Head of Marketing

Author: Somebody Good, Inc.
Dateline: Fri, 11 Mar 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Somebody Good, Inc. Legal Secretary Referral Service announced today that Maura Murphy-Barrosse has been added to their team as head of marketing. Somebody Good, Inc., based in Culver City, has been has been referring temporary and temp-to-perm legal secretaries and general office personnel to law firms in Los Angeles, Century City, Beverly Hills, West L.A. and the Valley since 2001.”



A R T I C L E:

LOS ANGELES, Calif. /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Somebody Good, Inc. Legal Secretary Referral Service announced today that Maura Murphy-Barrosse has been added to their team as head of marketing. "Maura brings with her an extensive knowledge and understanding of the temp world as well as a background strong in entertainment and the arts, which is great because a lot of our secretaries are actors and writers," said Steve Mancini, co-president of Somebody Good, Inc.

Somebody Good, Inc., based in Culver City, has been has been referring temporary and temp-to-perm legal secretaries and general office personnel to law firms in Los Angeles, Century City, Beverly Hills, West L.A. and the Valley since 2001. In the last year, they have expanded their client base to include accountancy firms, design firms and other professional offices for which they supply receptionists and general office personnel. Before starting Somebody Good, Inc., Mancini served for three years as the manager of the personnel referral service of a major bar association.

"People are often confused by the differences between temp agencies and referral services," co-president Geoff Hoff said. "Because of those differences, our personnel are more highly qualified, yet our fees are much lower. Maura will be focusing on making this distinction clearer in people's minds." Hoff explained that a temp agency can charge as much as $40.00/hour, much of which is commission, but Somebody Good charges $25.00/hour for legal secretaries and $14.00/hour for general office/receptionists, of which only $2.50 and $2.00, respectively, is commission. "Our secretaries earn more than other services and agencies, but because we take a smaller commission, the client pays substantially less," Hoff said.

The temp industry in general and the legal temp industry specifically has suffered over the last several years. Somebody Good, Inc., however, has not only survived but thrived by providing exemplary and individualized service. "We want to establish long term relationships," Mancini said. "We're not in it for the quick sale."

"I am very excited to be working with Somebody Good," Ms. Murphy-Barrosse said. "I believe in the quality of the services this company provides and I'm proud to be spreading the word."

Somebody Good, Inc. is affiliated with Joseph Coaler Productions.

Sharrow Group Helps Home Builders Assess the Cost of Turnover

Author: The Sharrow Group
Dateline: Wed, 09 Mar 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ROCHESTER, NY /Send2Press Newswire/ - Sharrow Group, a national executive search and consulting firm serving the home building industry, announces an innovative, online Turnover Cost Calculator to help builders understand the true impact of turnover on their bottom line. With home building turnover averaging 20 to 25% annually, successful companies know the competitive advantage of reducing its cost.”



A R T I C L E:

ROCHESTER, NY /Send2Press Newswire/ - Sharrow Group (www.sharrowgroup.com), a national executive search and consulting firm serving the home building industry, announces an innovative, online Turnover Cost Calculator to help builders understand the true impact of turnover on their bottom line. With home building turnover averaging 20 to 25% annually, successful companies know the competitive advantage of reducing its cost.


The Sharrow Group estimates the hard and soft costs of turnover are one to five times the annual salary of the position being replaced. While some turnover is inevitable and even desirable, these numbers merit careful attention. Losing proven staff costs far more than replacement expense; it reduces efficiency, impairs customer satisfaction and slows growth. The free Turnover Cost Calculator, available at www.sharrowgroup.com, makes it easy for builders to customize all assumptions to their own situation.

For example, according to Bill Carpitella, CEO of the Sharrow Group, "If the person who leaves was doing a good job, you have to calculate the loss of the high caliber of deliverables over time. When you bring on a new recruit, it typically takes a year before that person is functioning at a similar level of knowledge and output as the person they replaced."

How can a company manage turnover better? Carpitella suggests assessing the following:

* Where is turnover high? At the junior or senior level? In one area or many?

* What is the cycle? Is it new hires or veterans?

* What is the ratio of voluntary to involuntary turnover?


"The answers to these questions help identify a trend within the organization and that's the first step in fixing the problem," says Carpitella. He adds, "Companies need to develop a comprehensive approach that helps them formulate ways to not only attract but keep and grow valuable people." The biggest issues Sharrow Group sees with the builders seeking its help are good people leaving because they don't see the career path for themselves or lack effective leadership.

The Sharrow Group offers multi-dimensional capabilities, from executive recruitment to strategies to improve company profitability and align strategy, structure, process and people. The Sharrow Group is headquartered in Rochester, N.Y. with offices in Dallas, Texas; Detroit, Mich.; Fort Wayne, Ind.; Greenville, SC; Hilton Head, S.C.; Reno, Nev.; Philadelphia, Pa.; and Washington, DC.

Small Businesses Pioneer the Use of Video in On-line Marketing

Author: eMediaGroup, Inc.
Dateline: Tue, 08 Mar 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “CINCINNATI, OH /Send2Press Newswire/ -- One might not expect small businesses to be pushing the envelope in terms of using video to market online, but they are. Small to mid-size businesses nationwide have turned to Internet Video Commercials for the first time this year. 'The use of internet video as a promotional tool is one of the fastest growing segments of the internet,' explains Jim Schmidt, president of eMediaGroup, Inc.”



A R T I C L E:

CINCINNATI, OH /Send2Press Newswire/ -- One might not expect small businesses to be pushing the envelope in terms of using video to market online, but they are. Small to mid-size businesses nationwide have turned to Internet Video Commercials for the first time this year. "The use of internet video as a promotional tool is one of the fastest growing segments of the internet," explains Jim Schmidt, president of eMediaGroup, Inc.

"The Internet Video Commercial has finally become a realistic option for advertisers because of the tremendous surge in high-speed internet access which is ideal for watching video online," explains Mr. Schmidt. According to Pew Institute, high-speed internet access is now used in 51% of U.S. homes, outpacing slower dial-up connections for the first time.

Small businesses are attracted to Internet Video Commercials for several reasons. First, they are an affordable alternative to running expensive TV ads and allow small company’s with limited advertising resources to stretch their budgets. Second, they can be seen twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Third, they can be tightly targeted to people interested in the topic being discussed.

Small businesses can take advantage of these great benefits by using services provided by companies like eMediaGroup, Inc. (http://www.eMediaGroup.tv).

"We provide small business owners with a valuable service because many of them can't afford the $5,000 per month it takes to adequately advertise on cable TV stations. Internet Video Commercials enable small businesses to run the same high quality video ads, twenty-four hours a day on their own websites for just $35 per month, this is a real value to any small business," according to Schmidt.

To help small businesses use this service effectively, eMediaGroup, Inc. has developed a proprietary video player that can be seen by 98% of internet users without video downloads or plug-ins. They are also given access to a sophisticated email-marketing tool that enables them to broadcast their Internet Video Commercials via email directly to thousands of potential buyers. Email campaigns can also be tracked to see how many people have viewed the video.

"This built-in tracking allows business owners to make intelligent marketing decisions. This type of detailed analysis is not possible with traditional TV advertising. It is a win-win situation for small businesses seeking affordable, yet powerful marketing options," Schmidt continued.

"Not only are Internet Video Commercials more affordable, they also enable small businesses to say more than they can in a traditional thirty-second TV ad. Internet Video Commercials can actually be several minutes in length and are available to potential clients day or night, making them very effective," explains Mr. Schmidt.

eMediaGroup, Inc. combines audio/video production, state-of-the-art technology and video streaming services to help small to mid-sized businesses market online.

CorEdge Networks To Demonstrate Industry’s First AdvancedTCA-Compliant Cutaway Carrier Card

Author: CorEdge Networks
Dateline: Tue, 08 Mar 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SAN RAMON, Calif. /Send2Press Newswire/ -- CorEdge Networks, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, markets and supports network switching equipment; over $30M has been invested since 2000 by private equity investors to develop CorEdge technology and products. CorEdge will be demonstrating a working prototype of its AdvancedTCA-compliant cutaway carrier card at the PICMG (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group) pavilion (booth #657) at the CTIA Wireless 2005 trade show in New Orleans on March 14-16, 2005 at the Ernet N. Morial Convention center.”

SAN RAMON, Calif. /Send2Press Newswire/ -- CorEdge Networks, Inc. designs, develops, manufactures, markets and supports network switching equipment; over $30M has been invested since 2000 by private equity investors to develop CorEdge technology and products. CorEdge will be demonstrating a working prototype of its AdvancedTCA-compliant cutaway carrier card at the PICMG (PCI Industrial Computer Manufacturers Group) pavilion (booth #657) at the CTIA Wireless 2005 trade show in New Orleans on March 14-16, 2005 at the Ernet N. Morial Convention center.

The cutaway carrier card, which will be bundled with CorEdge's prototype Advanced Mezzanine Card (AMC) in a third-party ATCA chassis, will demonstrate a fully ATCA-compliant AMC-to-AMC Ethernet networking switch.

The CorEdge initial demonstration of the cutaway carrier card will incorporate switching that supports AMC.0 (form factor). Future releases of the carrier card will support AMC.1 (PCI-Express) and AMC.2 (Ethernet) and will support up to four AMCs. In contrast to other carrier cards, CorEdge's solution supports single-width, full extended-height AMCs.

CorEdge's cutaway carrier card is designed to work with any vendor's ATCA-compliant AMCs. In support of PICMG's standards-based approach, CorEdge Networks will also participate in the CTIA AIW (ATCA Interoperability Workshop) the week prior to the show, to test and ensure mechanical interoperability with third party AMC and ATCA components. CorEdge is actively engaging with third party vendors to develop modular ATCA and AMC-based solutions as well as seeking additional relationships.

"We are pleased to be able to support PICMG in the realization of the ATCA standard, by filling what up until now has been a major critical path item in the road to commercialization. When we began designing our solution, we had intended to use it as part of our own broader systems-level product. However, when we began to realize the extent of the product availability gap, we decided to make our designs available commercially. We welcome talking with ATCA vendors about our AMC and carrier cards and how we can work together to move ATCA ahead," said William Chu, President of CorEdge.

About CorEdge Networks

CorEdge Networks is a leading supplier of IP/chips, sub-system and system-level products. Through its dynamically programmable Multi-Protocol Communications Engine, Multi-Protocol Switch Fabric, and advanced digital and mixed-signal technologies, the company develops and markets networking products that enable high performance, scalable, flexible, reliable and cost-effective solutions for ATCA, HPC and data center applications. www.coredgenetworks.com.

90-year-old Women’s Peace Organization Sees Middle East Peace, Water Resources as Key Issues: New Programs Launched on International Women’s Day

Author: Women's International League for Peace and Freedom
Dateline: Mon, 07 Mar 2005

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “PHILADELPHIA, PA /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) is launching two new cutting-edge programs to mark the celebration of International Women's Day, 2005. This begins its tenth decade of organizing to end war. WILPF has addressed the root causes of war and called for negotiated settlements to end them since its founding at The Hague in 1915.”



A R T I C L E:

PHILADELPHIA, PA /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Women's International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF) is launching two new cutting-edge programs to mark the celebration of International Women's Day, 2005. This begins its tenth decade of organizing to end war. WILPF has addressed the root causes of war and called for negotiated settlements to end them since its founding at The Hague in 1915.


Noting that future wars to control the world's resources will be over water rather than oil, Laura Santina, chairperson of WILPF's new "Save the Water" campaign said "It's appropriate to announce WILPF's Save the Water campaign on International Women's Day. There's no question water is a women's issue." The program will educate and organize communities to address the scarcity, misuse and rapid "marketization" of water with corporations taking private control of this vital resource around the world.

The second campaign "Women Challenge U.S. Policy: Building Peace on Justice in the Middle East" will educate wider audiences to speak out against United States' policies promoting war and violence in the region rather than peaceful solutions to the Israel-Palestinian conflict, in Afghanistan and Iraq.

"It's very important that more women get involved in foreign policy," declared Odile Hugonot-Haber, chairperson of WILPF's new campaign focused on the Middle East. "We hope to affect the lives of women in the Mideast - that would be success, if we could see a difference in the lives of the people there," she concluded.

WILPF members chose these priorities for work in the next three years. This was a first-time ever, nationwide vote. Noting the link between the two campaigns, Mary Day Kent, WILPF's Executive Director, said "Control and access to water is as fundamental to the conflicts and violence in the Middle East as control of oil, and more fundamental to sustaining life on this earth. Water is a human right. All people must have equal access to it on a not-for-profit basis."

Since 1915, WILPF has worked to achieve through peaceful means: world disarmament, full rights for women, racial and economic justice, an end to all forms of violence, and to establish those political, social and psychological conditions which can assure peace, freedom, and justice for all.

KYIV, Ukraine /Send2Press Newswire/ -- The Maidan International Election Observation Group (the Maidan Group) believes that some parts of the Parliamentary Election in the Republic of Moldova were free and democratic but with violations reported in several parts of the country.

The Maidan International Election Observation Group consisted of representatives of Ukraine's independent nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), the press, and political experts. Although the Maidan Group did encounter some difficulties accessing polling stations in Chisinau, it was generally assisted by the government, Moldova's nongovernmental organizations, and representatives of electoral contestants throughout the country.

The team observed the Elections in the central and southern areas of the country, including the Gagauz Autonomous District. The Maidan Group did not witness any intimidation or coercion of voters or observers; however, representatives of Moldova's NGOs and intergovernmental organizations had problems of accessing the polling stations.

Electoral flaws observed by the Maidan Group included:

- the lack of informing voters about election contestants' programs and views throughout the entire election campaign,

- the unclear procedure for marking voters' passports with stamps that led to varying application of the law at different polling stations,

- the inconsistent application of legal procedure for counting ballots were varying at different polling stations, opening possibilities of election fraud,

- secrecy of the vote of imprisoned people and those detained by police was not enforced,

- election committee members attempted to restrain domestic and international observers in moving around polling stations, and

- at a few locations, visual campaign materials of the election contestants were not removed from public sight on the Election Day, particularly of the Democratic Moldova Alliance, the Party of Communists of Moldova, and the Patria -­ Rodina Party.

The Maidan Group is particularly concerned about significant deviation of the official outcome of the Election and the data provided by an independent exit poll conducted by a consortium of Moldova's NGOs. The exit poll showed the difference of four percent more of the total votes cast for the Popular Christian Democratic Party and the difference of four percent less of the total vote cast for Party of Communists of the Republic of Moldova, as compared to the preliminary results declared of the Central Election Commission.

The Maidan Group is also concerned about the fact that the Elections were completely sabotaged by the separatist government of the Moldovan Transnistrian Republic in the east of the country. Therefore, the voters living in the Moldovan Transnistrian Republic were denied representation in the national parliament.

"In general, we see opportunities in improving the democratic procedures here," says Andriy Savchaenko, a Ukrainian volunteer observer. "The difference between the exit poll result and the official data indicates significant problems with conducting the Elections."

"While Ukrainian voters experienced a flood of fraud and abuse of power from the side of the government during the first two rounds of the recent Presidential Election in Ukraine, Moldova's Elections have been conducted in a more transparent way. However, possible election fraud last Sunday presents a significant challenge," Andy Ignatov, the Maidan Group coordinator says.

"As Moldova is getting closer to join the European Union, more serious attention should be paid to strictly following all democratic election procedures."

JACKSONVILLE, FL /Send2Press Newswire/ -- 123collegedegree.com (123collegedegree.com), a specialized resource for accelerated Distance Learning today announced the launch of a website designed to help aspiring students earn a college degree quickly, including instructions for how to follow their noted Bachelor's Degree in Six Months program.

"My main purpose in building this website was to show other people who may be seeking a higher education that it is possible to earn a regionally accredited, legitimate associate or bachelor's degree while on active duty," said Joshua Graham, founder of 123collegedegree.com, who earned two degrees in just six months while on active duty with the U.S. Navy. "Traditional colleges require that you be physically present for about 45-120 minutes per class 1-5 times per week. Distance Learning classes are available over the Internet, or via mail or fax, so you can complete your degree from home, work, vacation, or anywhere you maybe stationed in the world."

Tips on the 123collegedegree.com website include: how to target e-Learning programs and accredited Distance Learning universities, how to locate CLEP and other equivalency exam sites, and how to access Instacert reference materials which help students study and pass college equivalency exams in their field of choice for only $19.95 per month. As Graham is in the military himself, resources available to military personnel and their families are emphasized, however Graham insists that the information on 123collegedegree.com is just as good for civilians.

"With the proper motivation, dedication, and academic potential, anyone can do this," said Graham. "Many people, myself included, thought it was either too time consuming or too difficult to start or finish their degrees. For so many of us, military service, kids, work schedules, and other time commitments slowly eroded our self-confidence that and the possibility of earning a degree became remote. It is my hope that with this website, I can get the word out that there is a way to earn your degree and maintain your busy schedules, just like I did."
