Bravo Reality TV Star BEN TANKARD Garners Dove Award Nomination and releases new book: THE FULL TANK LIFE

Nashville, TN —  It has been said that when you want a job done right, give it to a busy person to complete.   So in the life of renaissance man Ben Tankard.  The multi-talented NBC / Bravo reality TV star, award-winning Gospel/Jazz pianist, motivational speaker and private pilot, continues to soar with a Full Tank  to new flight levels with his recent Dove Award nomination for Best Instrumental CD: Full Tank 2.0 and the release of his new self help book:  The Full Tank Life: Fuel Your Dreams, Ignite Your Destiny.  Available in hardback, paperback, ebook and audiobook versions, The Full Tank Life is published by FaithWords / Hachette Publishing, also the literary home for New York Times bestselling authors Joel Olsteen, Joyce Meyer, and Bishop TD Jakes. 

“This is exciting! I feel so honored to be nominated by my music peers for yet another Dove Award,” Tankard says.

The nationally televised  GMA Dove Awards is Gospel music’s biggest night of the year, featuring top artists from the many different genres of Gospel and Christian music. Hosted this year by Tye Tribbett and For King and Country, the evening of music and celebration held at Allen Arena on Tuesday, October 11, 2016.  www.doveawards.com

“I am equally excited about this new chapter in my career with my partnership with FaithWords and the release of  my new book which I believe will help readers get their dreams out of neutral and in gear for Destiny,” Tankard explains.  “One of the key principles taught in my book is how to Self-Align by 7:59.  This simply means to take charge of your day like the super successful and accomplish more BEFORE 7:59am than many people accomplish in a full day.”

These early morning steps include:  A) Pray and Praise.  B) Exercise and Eat.  C) Read and Reflect.  D) Dream and Direct.  

The key to achieving these steps is to leave your cell phone in the bed when you get up!  Don’t begin your day on someone else’s terms with your phone, tablet, computer or social media. You will be well on your way to a Full Tank Life when you develop the proper habits to command your day early.

As a former pro basketball shooting guard, Tankard is used to making adjustments and changing directions.

Remember, new levels bring new devils. – @BenTankard”

Written by admin on Aug 30th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

San Francisco. CA. Jas Sandhu Aam Admi Party, which had emerged as the Third Front in Punjab, has shamed the NRI’s, with being so self centered and unorganized. The disclosures made by AAP., Convenor Punjab Sucha Singh Chottepur, on the set up of AAP Punjab Committee, has left no room for Chief Minister Delhi Arvind Kejriwal, to run the affairs in Punjab via remote control.

AAP has also violated State Punjab Election laws on Financing, with no regular appointee as their Treasurer in Punjab. NRI’s in San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, New Jersey, Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver had been donating Funds to AAP, for Punjab Elections, not knowing the Funds were used for Goa, Gujarat and U.P. Elections. ” How can CM. Delhi Arvind Kejriwal betray us on Financial matters”, said Hardeep Grewal of San Francisco. NRI. Amarbir Gill of Los Angeles, wants his $ 1,000 refunded, which was collected by his 8 Friends, during the visit of Sukhpal Khaira.

NRI Vikram Bajwa of Vancouver summed it up ” CM Delhi Arvind Kejriwal AAP, Convenor should immediately resign as Convenor, appoint a full time AAP Punjab Committee, he cannot wear 5 Hats at the same time”, said Bajwa. AAP has the potential to clean the Punjab Politics and the Drug Issue, but Kejriwal, needs to fix his house first, said Raman Kaur of New York. “I am surprised how Modi Government did not object to AAP, Financial violations in NRI and Punjab Election codes”, exclaimed Vinod Bhandari of Chicago.


Rose Bowl Selects Mountain View Seeds as Official Seed Supplier

Written by admin on Aug 30th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Changes to the Rose Bowl field include new approach using top-rated Kentucky bluegrass varieties from Mountain View Seeds

Salem, Oregon/Pasadena, California; After more than a year of on-field trials and testing, Will Schnell; Head Groundskeeper, has selected Mountain View Seeds to be the official seed supplier to The Rose Bowl. Mountain View Seeds will provide the seed used on the Rose Bowl for the NCAA championship game.

Schnell made the decision to convert the Rose Bowl from a bermudgrass base overseeded with perennial ryegrass to a 100% Kentucky bluegrass sod for the Rose bowl game for its superior density, tensile strength and ability to recover quickly after use. Schnell explained that the bluegrass sod is ideal for use during their 6-month cooler season from November through May. At this time UCLA plays and the annual Rose Bowl game takes place along with other major events. “During those months, in this part of California, it’s great blue grass growing weather,” said Schnell. The 3-way bluegrass brand called, 365 SS (consisting of Bolt, Legend, and Blue Note) was also selected for it’s dark green color and excellent leaf texture. “It looks beautiful from the stands and on TV,” said Schnell. The 2016 Rose Bowl game and 2016 spring and early summer month’s showed Schnell that the bluegrass sod would hold up to the rigorous demands made on the field. “This field is used more than any other in the country and it has to be able to stand up to those extreme demands” said Schnell, “it also has to look great doing it. That’s why picking the right blend is so important – it has to do everything extremely well!” The Rose Bowl is used roughly 300 days each year. In addition to the football season, the field is used for filming television ads, movies, and numerous events including soccer tournaments (2016 America’s Cup), concerts and even a moto cross event.

When Schnell began researching new species and varieties for The Rose Bowl he relied heavily on the National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP). The NTEP reports provided him with University data to make unbiased comparisons between cultivars. He noticed that Mountain View Seeds’ Kentucky bluegrass varieties consistently ranked at the top of

the NTEP lists. After discussions with his partners at West Coast Turf, Schnell made the decision to plant a trial of 365 SS that would eventually be chosen for The Rose Bowl. After evaluating the test plots growth pattern and testing its strength, the decision was made to grow a field for use.  

Mountain View Seeds worked with West Coast Turf and Schnell to grow the sod that would eventually become The Rose Bowl game field. Constant attention was paid to every aspect of growing the sod to ensure the highest quality product was delivered to Pasadena.24 truckloads of sod were used and the field was laid in 24 hours. The management practice used at the West Coast Turf sod farm in central California was identical to the management practice Schnell would use at The Rose Bowl. This ensured a smooth transition when the sod was installed in Pasadena. Every detail was managed for optimum success, including matching the soil profiles at both locations.

This partnership marks a continued focus on top-quality customers for Mountain View Seeds. These partners include Shinnecock Hills (host of the 2018 US Open), Dodger Stadium (home of Major League Baseball’s LA Dodgers), FedEx Field (home of the National Football League’s Washington Redskins) and even The White House. “Being part of Will’s winning team really means a lot to our group,’ said Troy Kuenzi, President and CEO of Mountain View Seeds. “We pride ourselves on providing the best quality products to all of our customers and that’s something we have in common with Will and The Rose Bowl. We look forward to many years of success as partners.” said Kuenzi.


Ellms-Dougherty Group: a Diverse Real Estate Team That Cares About Community

Written by admin on Aug 29th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Morris County Real estate agents Michael Elms and Mary Dougherty team up after 10 years of knowing each other when they formed their partnership two and a half years ago. They are both heavily involved in their community and care very deeply about helping people. They also found their diverse backgrounds and differing personalities gave them the ability to complement each other and appeal to many clientele. These traits would help them create the award winning Elms-Dougherty Group at RE/MAX Properties Unlimited.

Michael Elms, who is a Certified Luxury Home Specialist and a Certified Negotiations Expert, had been in business for 14 years as a residential and commercial Realtor while Mary had been working in Corporate relocation, where her negotiation skills were in high demand and was already certified as a senior real estate specialist. Michael says, “Mary’s dynamic personality lights up a room and helps her make an authentic connection with clients, while my approach is a bit more reserved. Clients appreciate Mary’s outgoing nature while they simultaneously gravitate to my experience, analytical nature and ability to guide the process with thoughtful insights.”

After joining forces, Michael Elms and Mary Dougherty have built a diverse team that currently has eight licensed agents. The Elms-Dougherty Group is made up of full-time agents of different backgrounds, ages and genders that help make a strong connection with clients whether buying or selling.

Having full-time agents benefits their clients of The Elms-Dougherty Group immensely. There is always a team member available to help when needed and clients value their different skills and insights; the team is always in action and no client ever feels unattended. Michael Elms, Mary Dougherty and each member of The Elms-Dougherty Group are individually strong agents, but when they work together they are able to combine their skill sets to make sure all details receive attention and every aspect of each individual transaction is taken under consideration. The team believes that “When you are working with someone’s equity, you should have a full-time focus on it.”

Michael Elms and Mary Dougherty also find that clients notice and appreciate their different strengths, When Michael and Mary are on real estate appointments or servicing clients, their energies and focus work really well together. People are attracted to warmth and relationships, but they also want to make sure that someone is really thoughtful and mindful about the process. Mary is very skilled at negotiating and we have the analytical piece with Michael.

Recognizing and respecting each other’s strengths has helped them build an award-winning real estate group, including being in the Top 10 RE/MAX teams in New Jersey. Their focus on community and having a strong, diverse team is leading them into another successful year helping their clients in the greater Morris County area.


Leadership Lessons From Gibbs, Yoda and Capt’n Jack Sparrow

Written by admin on Aug 29th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

Leadership author Steven Howard uses three popular fictional icons in his latest book – 8 Keys To Becoming A Great Leader (With Leadership Lessons and Tips from Gibbs, Yoda and Capt’n Jack Sparrow) — to showcase great leadership behaviors.

Palm Springs, CA, August 19, 2016 — In his latest book, 8 Keys To Becoming A Great Leader (With Leadership Lessons and Tips From Gibbs, Yoda and Capt’n Jack Sparrow), leadership author Steven Howard uses three popular fictional icons from pop culture — Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs from the hit television series NCIS, Jedi Master Yoda from the epic Star Wars film series, and swashbuckling pirate Captain Jack Sparrow from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean movies — to demonstrate his 8 Keys to Great Leadership model:

  • Personal Leadership Philosophy
  • Leadership Mindset
  • Core Set of Leadership Behaviors Aligned With Organization’s Culture
  • Leading Teams and People
  • Leading People Development
  • Leading For Results
  • Ensuring Accountability
  • Communicating as a Leader

“My purpose here,” notes Howard, “is not to suggest that any or all of these three fictional characters make ideal leaders, but rather to use their behaviors and individual leadership platforms as a launching pad for readers to look into and develop their own leadership beliefs, skills and behaviors.”

This is Howard’s 12th book on leadership, marketing and corporate branding.

Pop Icons as Great Leaders

While there are many books exuding how particular individuals have risen to the task of leadership in the business, military and political worlds, few have examined how some of our pop culture icons have exhibited the characteristics of great leaders.

Howard believes the leadership mindsets, behaviors and techniques of these three well-known fictional characters — Gibbs, Yoda and Sparrow — will enable leaders to develop their own leadership beliefs, skills and behaviors.

“In a discussion with my two adult sons on the merits of the teachings of Star Wars character Yoda, they countered that the sayings of Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean series had more meaning to them,” notes Howard, the founder of Caliente Leadership. “Reflecting upon this discussion a few days later, I decided this was an interesting topic bearing further investigation. At first I thought this might just be a generational cultural divide that could be surmounted.”

“However,” adds Howard, “when I widened my scope of thinking to include The Rules of Gibbs from the long-running hit TV show NCIS, the concept of how leadership is portrayed on screen by fictional characters became a new focus. So I decided to use these three as illustrative examples.”

The book is available on Amazon in both Kindle ($3.98) and paperback ($6.38) formats.

ASL Services Inc. – Communication Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Inc. Urges Deaf Driver Identification Law In Wake of Fatal NC Police Shooting

Kissimmee, FL:  August 29, 2016.  ASL Services Inc. (ASLS) in conjunction with its not for profit group, Communication Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Inc. (CCDHH)  and video relay service affiliate,  GlobalVRS, have urged North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory to seek passage of a Deaf driver identification law, in the wake of Wednesday’s deadly shooting of a Deaf individual near Charlotte, NC.   In a letter sent to Governor McCrory, Angela Roth, ASLS CEO, and Tanya Velasquez, CCDHH President, stressed how a Florida law that ASLS and CCDHH proposed and actively promoted, ensured that Deaf Florida residents do not need to fear the fate of Daniel Kevin Harris, victim of the fatal shooting.   ASLS and CCDHH are asking North Carolina and other states to pass similar laws. 

 

“We worked closely with Florida Senator Darren Soto (D-Orlando) and other legislators to introduce and pursue passage of the “Deaf Floridians ID Bill,” ensuring that law enforcement officers may clearly recognize via data base driver is Deaf and immediately understand why that individual may be unresponsive to officers’ verbal requests ” Ms. Roth said.  “The senseless killing of a Deaf individual in North Carolina could well have been prevented by this law.  Now is the time for all states to pass Deaf ID bills,” she said.  

 

The Deaf Floridians ID Bill requires

  • Deaf drivers be given an option to request that their licenses identify them as Deaf drivers and be placed on a Deaf driver data base, also required under the new law;
  • law enforcement officers to obtain an interpreter before questioning or arresting a Deaf individual;
  • basic Deaf interaction skills training for law enforcement officers.


Hastings & Hastings Speaks on the Importance of Legal Representation Following an Accident

Written by admin on Aug 29th, 2016 | Filed under: Press Releases

  With over 35 years practicing personal injury law in Phoenix, Arizona, Hastings & Hastings has  supported thousands of accident victims by relentlessly fighting for their rights and helping them secure  financial compensation. The experienced legal team at Hastings & Hastings has seen every type of  accident case imaginable. They have achieved excellent results, even when they odds were stacked  against them. Following an accident, regardless of its severity, it is important for individuals to explore  their legal options. Often, accident victims choose not to retain the services of a personal injury  attorney because they believe they cannot afford it. Thanks to their No-Fee Promise, and Discount  Accident Fee, Hastings & Hastings, Arizona’s Premier Discount Accident Law Firm, offers affordable  service to anyone, regardless of their financial status.

Many accident victims opt to not seek out medical attention following an accident because they do not believe they are injured. Often, injuries may present themselves days, or even weeks after an accident. In large part, this is because adrenaline, which is released into the body during an accident, masks pain and other injury symptoms.

In the event of an injury, an experienced personal injury attorney will best be able to advise accident victims on their legal options. Without the guidance of an attorney, it is easy for individuals to become lost in the labyrinthine complexity created by police reports, insurance claims, hospital bills, and witness statements.   

Hastings & Hastings believes that individuals who seek legal guidance following an accident should never feel as if they are being pressured into pursuing a lawsuit. Rather, upon seeking legal guidance, accident victims should feel informed, educated and empowered. During a free legal consultation, Hastings & Hastings will encourage accident victims to make their decisions regarding legal actions. Should they decided to retain the services of Hastings & Hastings, they will be entering into a partnership which Hastings & Hastings takes very seriously. 

“We always say, even if you don’t think you need to hire a personal injury attorney, you should at least come in for a free, no-obligation legal consultation. After all, you may have never been in an accident before. You should talk with someone who has handled thousands of accident cases before. They can provide you with advice and guidance. If you have been involved in an accident, reach out to Hastings & Hastings today by calling (480)267-9227,” said David Hastings, the founder of Hastings & Hastings.
