ST. PAUL, Minn. - Sept. 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Leading economic development expert Dr. Jerry Paytas will discuss Regional Competitiveness: Best Practices and Lessons Learned at the 12th Annual Minnesota Development Conference "Harnessing Minnesota's Ingenuity" on September 26, 2007.

Caption: GSP ConsultingPaytas, Director of Research at GSP Consulting, is a nationally-recognized economic development expert known best for his research and insight into regional economic opportunities and challenges. His work has been published both nationally and internationally by agencies such as the United States Economic Development Administration, the Brookings Institution and Urban Affairs Review.

"I am looking forward to discussing best practices in economic development with development professionals from across Minnesota at this important conference," Paytas said. "It is great to see states taking a proactive role in expanding their economic development potential and I am honored to be presenting."

Held at the Northland Inn in Brooklyn Park, St. Paul, attendees of the Minnesota Development Conference, will hear Paytas present findings from the GSP Consulting Economic Architecture (EA) study titled Falling off the Bandwagon: Best and Worst Practices in State and Regional Economic Development, completed in May 2007. The Economic Architecture practice at GSP is one of three growing focus areas at the Pittsburgh-based consulting firm. Paytas and fellow Economic Architecture consultants use a unique three-phase consulting model to design, build and implement economic development initiatives for communities and organizations. With experts such as Practice Director Rich Overmoyer who served as Deputy Secretary in Pennsylvania's Department of Community and Economic Development and Paytas who led an economic development think-tank at Carnegie Mellon University, the EA practice is a sought-after authority on cutting-edge economic development trends and strategies.

"We started the Economic Architecture practice in 2006 with the notion that economic development consulting should be more than just giving our client a report. We go beyond the findings and present an action plan that is realistic and executable," said Overmoyer. "Our approach is distinctively different, but based on the positive market response we've received and the success our clients have achieved, we know it works. Dr. Paytas is looking forward to sharing our insights, expertise and success stories at the Minnesota Development Conference."

The Economic Architecture practice is a stand-alone group within GSP that provides economic development research, strategies and implementation blueprints. They serve a national client base and also support GSP's other state and federal practice areas. Their clients include bioscience and technology organizations, non-profits, local and state governments and other economic development groups.

Comprised of three practice areas - Federal and State Government Affairs, Development Services and Economic Architecture, the firm has successfully served hundreds of clients throughout the U.S. Since it's founding, GSP experts have authored revolutionary public policy, designed and launched ground-breaking economic development initiatives, secured hundreds of millions of dollars in funding, and built longstanding relationships and networks at all levels of government.

BUFFALO, N.Y. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Advantage Trim & Lumber today announced the release of Tigerwood Decking to finally give homeowners a low maintenance and long life deck material at a cheaper price than other hardwoods like Ipe.

(c) Send2Press"In talking with homeowners, one thing that became very clear was that they were in need of a low maintenance hardwood decking product similar to Ipe that would offer them the same benefits but at a lower cost," said Dan Ivancic the company's Director of Marketing. "That's exactly what Tigerwood Decking offers."

Many homeowners have come to enjoy not only the cost and stability of this material but they really enjoy its rich exotic look. The descriptive name Tigerwood Decking comes from the woods resemblance of a tiger. The wood has a beautiful light golden brown to reddish brown color with irregular black and brown streaks.

"The initial response to Tigerwood Decking has been even better than we expected," continued Ivancic. "I think what we're seeing is that our customers are also drawn to many of the natural benefits that Tigerwood offers that many other materials like composite decking can not."

For example, Ivancic said that Tigerwood Decking features many excellent properties - it's naturally mold resistant, resistant to rot and decay, resistant to insect attack, Class A flame retardant, does not splinter or crack which makes it great to walk on bare foot, and it has a 25+ year life span all without any kind of chemical treatment applied to the wood.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Sept. 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- ElderHomeSharing.com announced today its confidential matching program is available nationwide. Their exclusive "Elder Elves Preferences Questionnaire" of 50+ fun, yet selective, questions matches elder singles desiring homes to share with other elder singles having homes to share. For more information visit www.ElderHomeSharing.com

About ElderHomeSharing
Program was prompted both by increasing numbers of elder singles, as our nation's longevity extends; and economic pressures often placed on elder singles by increasing living costs and decreasing purchasing power of fixed incomes.

The major problem in elder single home sharing is finding the right person with whom to share. For those not having friends or family contacts, it takes a broad base of potential sharers to both find and select true matches.

This process is very personal and does require confidentiality of all is always maintained. ElderHomeSharing.com's program provides such confidentiality, for no preferences questionnaires are relayed at any time. Also, program does not disclose anyone's identity.

In addition, program must be easily affordable to all elder singles desiring home sharing. Registrant cost is $30 for three months registration and free "Elder Elves Preferences Questionnaire."

Noah’s Arcade: Alternative Kids Apparel Just Like Daddy Would Wear

Author: Noah's Arcade

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Sept. 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Noah's Arcade, a California-based clothing line for boys - newborn to 6T - announces a fun, hip line that caters to the edgy crowd. When co-owners of Noah's Arcade, Allyson Wagoner and Shannon Hanly, went shopping for their new baby boys, they discovered that the market for cool and happening boy's apparel was limited.”

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Sept. 18 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Noah's Arcade, a California-based clothing line for boys - newborn to 6T - announces a fun, hip line that caters to the edgy crowd. When co-owners of Noah's Arcade, Allyson Wagoner and Shannon Hanly, went shopping for their new baby boys, they discovered that the market for cool and happening boy's apparel was limited.

Caption: P.I.M.P - Poopie in my Pants"Everything was ducks and bears," Hanly said, "and that was not the kind of clothing that I wanted for my new baby boy."

Wagoner and Hanly became fast friends after the birth of their first sons. Wagoner was working as a prominent graphic designer in the fashion industry and Hanly was an event coordinator with an eye for flair and detail. They sought clothing inspired by their edgy lifestyles, but came up empty handed.

After designing samples for their friends, the two new moms realized that they were not the only ones interested in clothes that were freshly inspired and resembled the duds that their children's daddies were wearing.

Being creative, and with a sound business sense, the two joined forces to create Noah's Arcade.

Popular shirts and onesies include: P.I.M.P - "Poopie in My Pants"; "Mohawk"; "Shake, Rattle and Roll"; and "Little Squirt" depicting water gun play.

"Dads may not wear P.I.M.P tees," Hanly laughs, "but, the message has taken off for their little men."

Currently, Noah's Arcade sells t-shirts and onesies. In the fall, their line will be expanded to thermals and hooded sweatshirts. Their alternative fashion line is available in 28 stores throughout southern California and they are expanding, nationwide, in the fall.

Stores where Noah's Arcade items are sold include, but are not limited to: Kitson Kids, This Little Piggy Wears Cotton, Lisa Kline Kids, and Hush Baby.

Wagoner is the creative director and Hanly is in charge of sales and marketing, but most importantly, they are full-time moms who want to share their trendy and creative designs with others seeking funky and fun clothing for their kids.

"Expression is key when it comes to fashion," Wagoner said, "and we want to make sure that people have choices."

We discovered that our customers were genuinely pleased with our products, but preferred reduced hold times," said Ross Bogitch, the Call Center Director for CheapoAir.com.

Caption: CheapoAirIronically, it was the company's immense popularity growth that initially produced increased customer feedback. That customer feedback prompted us to completely redesign the manner in which CheapoAir.com handles common customer issues.

Such changes included 24/7 customer support and an increased staff. "We determined that we needed to reduce customer hold times. The difference between having to wait ten minutes or fifteen seconds to speak with a representative can make all the difference in the world," said Bogitch.

The results have been dramatic. Our hold times have decreased by 65% and caller abandonment rates have plummeted by 70%, creating a substantially more pleasurable experience for our consumers.

By month's end, CheapoAir.com plans to unveil an enormous multi-national call center to allow for continued staff increases. In November, the company will also launch a state-of-the-art phone system with the ultimate goal of completely eliminating customer hold times -- an ambitious feat for any large business.

"We believe that superior customer service creates a far more loyal user base, and CheapoAir.com isn't backing off its pledge to create the industry standard for customer service."

"CheapoAir's customer service goal is One Call - does it all, to make finding cheap flights a hassle-free experience. We're confident the steps we've taken to improve customer service will help our customers achieve this goal."

CheapoAir.com is a NYC based consumer travel web site offering low airfares to its 3 Million plus customer base. CheapoAir.com is the brainchild of a Group of Travel industry Professionals. Their vision has always been to infuse emerging technology into affordable travel solutions for the most budget conscious minds.
