ITALIAN AMERICAN ONE VOICE COALITION LAUNCHES GOFUNDME PAGE TO HELP SAVE COLUMBUS DAY AND MONUMENTS

ONE VOICE Defends Columbus Day

“Elected Officials across the country are violating our civil rights and this legislation of hate must be stopped,” according to ONE VOICE officials.

BLOOMFIELD, NEW JERSEY, US, January 7, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ITALIAN AMERICAN ONE VOICE COALITION LAUNCHES GOFUNDME PAGE TO HELP SAVE COLUMBUS DAY AND MONUMENTS

“Elected Officials across the country are violating our civil rights and this legislation of hate must be stopped,” according to ONE VOICE officials.

Bloomfield, NJ – The Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition (“ONE VOICE”), America’s largest independent Italian American anti-bias organization, is raising funds on GoFundMe to challenge local officials that seek to rename Columbus Day or remove monuments. This comes after several localities including NYC have initiated public debate over whether to keep or remove statues of Christopher Columbus and the holiday.

In 2018, many school committees and localities held meetings and voted to rename Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day. This created heated school board discussions and public debate that infuriated Italian Americans within these areas. Critics of Columbus Day say it represents slavery and oppression. However, supporters of Columbus Day, which includes millions of Italian Americans, feel the holiday celebrates a great explorer, 500 years of immigration to America and Italian heritage.

“2018 was the year that anti-italianism returned and we must resist the hatred,” stated Dr. Manny Alfano, President of ONE VOICE. “This is why it is so important for Italian Americans and supporters to contribute to our GoFundMe page. Our civil rights are under attack and the money will be used for legal defense and other areas of protest.” ONE VOICE has been an outspoken advocate of the Italian American community, and its members gave testimony in last year’s monument commission hearings held in the five boroughs of NYC.

Columbus Day became a federal holiday in 1937 with many states and localities choosing to celebrate the holiday soon after. The monuments of Columbus were erected after the great wave of Italian immigrants began arriving in America in the early 20th century. Unfortunately, many of these monuments have been vandalized in the last few years leaving Italian American community leaders up in arms over the lack of criminal prosecution.

ONE VOICE is different from all other Italian American groups in that its sole focus and objective is to educate and fight bias, stereotyping and discrimination against Italian Americans. ONE VOICE’s stated mission is to “…secure the rightful representation of Americans of Italian origin and of all peoples whose paths toward social equality have been impeded. The powers of intellect, wisdom and due process of law will be brought to bear on all inequities.”

ONE VOICE issues a regular email newsletter, “The Alfano Digest,” to more than 5,000 individuals and Italian American organizations nationwide. Written and compiled by Dr. Manny Alfano, Founder and President of ONE VOICE, the Digest issues alerts on instances of bias, stereotyping, discrimination and defamation and activates the ONE VOICE nationwide network of “Defenders” who respond through calls, emails, faxes, letters and demonstrations where necessary. The Digest also contains informative Italian American cultural and heritage information. To receive the Digest, email Dr. Alfano – mannyalfano@comcast.net.

Supporters can also send checks/money orders directly to P.O. Box 2333 Bloomfield, New Jersey 07003

MaiaLearning Helps Students Tell Authentic Stories in College Essays

Student writing

MaiaEssays, a new part of MaiaLearning, helps students tell authentic stories in college essays.

MaiaLearning partners with Prompt to help students write more powerful college application essays, and helps counselors save time managing the essay process

MaiaEssays helps students tell their authentic stories. It supports them through the most stressful part of college applications.””

— Satish Mirle, CEO of MaiaLearning

PALO ALTO, CA, UNITED STATES, January 7, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A student’s grades, test scores, and activities only tell a part of the applications story. Essays fill in the gaps by helping bring a student’s experiences, traits, and values to life. However, essays are often the most stressful part of applications, as students struggle to start writing and lack confidence in the content and structure of their writing.

College and career readiness software vendor MaiaLearning has partnered with Prompt to offer College Essay Development Tools and essay feedback from Prompt’s Essay Specialists inside MaiaLearning. The partnership helps students:
● Provide the information admissions officers look for in essays
● Tell their authentic stories in compelling ways
● Be confident that they’re submitting their best work

The new capability, dubbed MaiaEssays, has four parts.

First, it provides access to more than 3,000 essay prompts for U.S. and international universities. The essay prompts are classified by topic, so students see where variations on a single essay can meet the requirements of several institutions. This is valuable, as Prompt finds students applying to competitive universities write an average of 16 essays.

Second, it provides Prompt’s Essay Development Tools that help students identify what to write about, and create outlines for common types of essays (e.g., the Common App Personal Statement). The tools guide students to develop content that’s unique and tells their most compelling stories. Then, the tools help students structure their content as an outline they can use to begin writing.

Third, it lets schools provide students with access to written feedback on their essays’ content, structure, and grammar from Prompt’s Essay Specialists within 48 hours. Prompt’s Essay Specialists reviewed over 13,000 college essays in 2018, and typically come from top-50 institutions with backgrounds in education or writing. It’s like giving each student a personal essay coach with the time and expertise to help make step-change improvements to the essays.

Fourth, it provides tools to help counselors manage the essay process: seeing essay requirements, topics, and progress for each student.

This new software capability levels the playing field for students who can’t afford expensive essay coaching. Students will write first drafts with their most compelling content and a sound structure. Schools can then choose to purchase affordable essay feedback for their students or allow students to purchase feedback themselves.

Ramon Canela, College Counselor at Newton High School in the New York City public school system, uses Prompt’s essay review services for select students and says, “It has been a really great experience to see my students so confident about their essays.”

MaiaLearning CEO Satish Mirle says, “MaiaEssays helps students tell their authentic stories. It supports them through the most stressful part of college applications.”

Prompt CEO Brad Schiller says, “The MaiaLearning partnership will allow us to reach more students, helping us fulfill our mission of making people better writers.”

MaiaEssays will be available in the first quarter of 2019.

MaiaLearning, Inc., founded in 2008, provides students with an engaging, all-inclusive platform for college and career planning. Its current software, MaiaLearning 3.0, helps counselors offer more effective guidance with less effort, and keeps families informed.

Getting a good night’s rest is vital to your health. Matthew Bogard, M.D. has published advice for those who are severely affected

Matthew Bogard, MD (N/A:N/A)

Occasionally, having a stressful feeling is normal, but the constant feeling stress is dangerous… if a person stays in such a state for a longer time, it can influence the mental and physical health”

— Matthew Bogard, MD in Iowa & Nebraska

OMAHA, NEBRASKA, UNITED STATES, January 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sleep serves important functions for your health. If you don’t sleep well, it does not only affect your performance the next day, it may have adverse long-term implications. The newest informational article by Matthew Bogard, MD is available on his blog at https://matthewbogardmd.blogspot.com/

Have you been suffering from sleep deprivation? If a person is under a lot of stress, it is normal for that to impact both the duration and quality of sleep. This can impact the mental and physical health of a person. A proper night’s sleep of about 7 to 9 hours is recommended for every person, depending on age and other factors.

Today, about 40% of the adults in the US sleep less than 7 hours a night, as per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). And because of this, these people begin to suffer from lack of sleep which eventually results in both mental and physical health issues.

Effects of Sleep deprivation

If a person is not getting enough sleep at night, this can negatively affect a person's mood, lower your energy, and create difficulty in concentrating. Lack of sleep also causes a general inability to function normally as a human should. And that is not all; sleep deprivation can have very severe consequences in a few situations. For example, if a person is operating heavy machinery or driving and falls asleep due to extreme fatigue, it can be deadly.

Getting just one night of poor sleep doesn't cause a lot of harm, but if it persists over time it increases the risk of many chronic health conditions. Those who keep sleep less than 7 hours every night are in danger of suffering from the following conditions:

• kidney disease
• arthritis
• depression
• stroke
• diabetes
• heart disease
• obesity

While there are many factors that cause any of these conditions, lack of sleep can independently contribute to their development.

The link between Sleep and Stress

There are a lot of negative connotations of stress, but it's known to be a response developed by animals and humans which permits them to easily deal with dangerous or crucial situations. When a human is stressed, the central nervous system releases hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. Due to these hormones, the heart rate is increased so that it can circulate blood much more efficiently to the muscles and the vital organs. In short, it helps the body to take a quick action when necessary.

This reaction that the CNS provides is called the fight-or-flight response. During the initial stages of evolution, this response was very important for human survival. Today, there are issues that do not need such a response, but the body still triggers the fight-or-flight response for issues that are not a threat to the person – such issues as relationship difficulties or problems at work.

Effects of Stress on the Body in the Long-Term

Occasionally, having a stressful feeling is normal, but the constant feeling stress is dangerous to the human body. This is because it can cause the CNS to sustain a heightened state of arousal which can last for extended periods. And if a person stays in such a state for a longer time, it can influence the mental and physical health in the long term. One of the effects of the stress is sleep deprivation.

This prolonged stress response makes sleep difficult. It can also cause anxious and unsettling thoughts to enter a person's mind at night. And this eventually leads to more insufficient sleep that then causes further stress.

How to reduce stress to improve sleep?

If you are a person suffering from stress or sleepless nights, it is important to reduce the stress. This will improve the sleep that you get at night. But for this, you would need to change some things in your lifestyle.

#1 Meditation

This is something that nearly everyone knows about, and is the best technique to reduce stress. This is a relaxation routine that helps you to become more aware of your present moment. Its objective is to help the person recognize all the sensations, feelings, and thoughts that are taking place outside and inside the body without reacting to them. If a person takes the time to practice meditation for about 10 to 30 minutes before going to bed every day it will help them have a much better sleep and also reduce the stress levels.

#2 Exercise

Exercising is excellent treatment for many diseases; it is also great for stress and can help you get a much better sleep at night. It does wonders in improving the well-being, physical health and mental health of a person.

Other lifestyle changes

Changing the below things in your lifestyle can also help to reduce the stress and improve the sleep:

• Receiving support from family and friends.
• Avoid taking any work home or checking work emails at home.
• Reducing alcohol and caffeine intake.
• Adjusting to a healthy diet.

Even though reducing stress can be highly challenging, it is not impossible and does wonders for a person's health. – The complete article is available on the blog of Dr. Matthew Bogard at https://matthewbogardmd.blogspot.com/

Magdalena Cuprys, Esq. provides an unconventional guide to places where to research visa and immigration matters, including simply going to nearest law library

Cuprys & Associates (N/A:N/A)

You may laugh, but librarians are experts in legal research and they know their library better than any visitor. Many legal libraries, such as the Library of Congress, are open to the public.”

— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 6, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Magdalena Cuprys, Florida-based immigration lawyer, has published a research overview for those researching visa and immigration matters. The complete overview is available on her Blog at https://magdalenacuprysblog.blogspot.com/

Nobody knows for sure, but it is said that in the United States, after Tax Law, Immigration Law is the most complicated area of law. I have not counted, but the laws, regulations and commentary allegedly cover more than 10,000 printed paged. Be that as it may, we can all agree on the fact and that visa and immigration matters are very complex. But let us start with research basics.

There are no second opinions about the fact that conducting legal research can be extremely difficult regardless of the sources that you might have access to. There are a number of different aspects that need to be taken into consideration when conducting legal research. This is because there are a lot of different directions that you can take with legal research, and it is absolutely imperative for you to take all factors and aspects into consideration when you’re dealing with legal documents and cases since even the slightest discrepancy can amount to a lot.

Needless to say, legal research requires a lot more concentration and diligence than other types of research due to the different conclusions that are possible with minor tweaking. What’s more, since there’s a lot more material that you need to go through when it comes to legal research, you need to be absolutely certain that your sources are not only credible and authoritative, but also relevant to the problem at hand.

Another common problem that researchers and people interested in legal issues face is that of contradictory information available online. Additionally, in most cases, credible information online comes with a literal price to pay. What this means is that most online platforms that contain credible legal information expect you to pay a fee to be granted access or authority to view the content.

Interested in learning more about how you can go about conducting legal research the right way? Read on to find out as we tell you all about the different steps that you should take to conduct legal research the traditional way without relying on online sources for best results.

Ask a Librarian

You may laugh, but librarians are experts in legal research and they know their library better than any visitor. Many legal libraries, such as the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, are open to the public. Thus, if you have an issue to which you simply must find the answer, simply try the closest law library and …. ask a librarian for help when you begin your research

Manual Research – Conducting immigration research the traditional way

Contrary to popular belief, the path you follow for legal research will be based on a number of different factors. What this means that there is no single path that’s set in stone that absolutely must be followed in case you need to conduct legal research.

With that said, while there are certain common and extremely popular steps that are generally followed by anyone who wishes to conduct legal research, it’s important to note that these steps may or may not be followed in a sequential fashion for each scenario. This essentially means that while certain scenarios may require you to follow the steps listed below in the exact order, you may choose to play around for other cases – and that will not affect the results of your research.

Before you start conducting legal research, it’s important for you to know that you will be expected to revisit certain sources of information for increased clarity. What’s more, you might even be expected to check certain sources of information a number of times due to exceptions. Even in the case of exceptions, you will have to double-check whether the conditions of the exception apply to your particular case, and if there is any way that the exception can be worked around for your particular scenario.

Here are some of the steps that you are advised to follow when conducting legal research without the use of the internet:

The number one reason why people are unable to conduct thorough research is the fact that they do not pay enough attention to the initial phase of the process. It goes without saying that identifying the problem and its scope is of key importance when you’re interested in conducting legal research as doing so will essentially set the precedent and give you an idea of how thorough your research must be.

When you’re trying to identify the problem and its scope, it’s also important to ask questions that are highly specific and will give you a clear understanding of the jurisdiction, search terms, and time period that is applicable or relevant to the problem. By doing so, instead of being confused by all of the options that you have available, it will be possible for you to get a better sense of direction to start taking the most appropriate path for conducting your research.

Unlike primary sources, secondary law or sources of information are bound to help you understand how your specific scenario is also relevant for a much broader context. What’s more, once you start browsing through secondary sources of information, it will be far easier for you to visit primary sources that are relevant to your particular scenario and can help you gain greater understanding for the scope in question.

By consulting secondary sources of information, it will also be possible for you to get references to citations and statutes that will help you gain the right information regarding your legal research.

Once you have done your fair share of research through secondary sources, it will be far easier for you to identify relevant statutes that will help you in gaining the information that you need for your legal research of a particular scope, question, or scenario. By identifying relevant statutes, you can get into greater detail and start browsing through to find other sections that may be relevant or could potentially add value to your legal research.

In addition to finding the right statutes for the legal research of your particular scenario, you can also browse through cases in digests and find ones that may contain relevant information to ensure that all aspects of research are covered.

Keeping track of all of the documents that you have already been through is extremely essential to ensure that you do not have to resort to the same cases and documents over and over again. It’s also important to note that you must do so regardless of whether or not you have retrieved any relevant information from the source.

Now that you know of all of the steps that you need to follow to conduct research the traditional way, it will be easy for you to figure out how you want to proceed with looking for immigration information. Remember that the nearest law library may be the best starting point. And remember to ask a librarian before you start searching and reading, it will save you hours of time, notes Ms. Cuprys.

Counselor Offers Support To Schools Affected By The Campfire & Launches Fundraiser For Supplies

Rusty May is visiting Paradise and Ponderosa Schools to offer support to students and raise money to help teachers start the new year strong.

PARADISE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Two months have passed since the deadliest wildfire in California history destroyed Paradise and 8 of its 9 public schools. The students and teachers have been reunited in borrowed classrooms around the county but the conditions are crowded, the supplies are basic and the fabric of these school communities has been stretched thin with all the loss and change.

Paradise & Ponderosa elementary schools have been watching daily videos from SchoolToolsTv.com, featuring Rusty May, a school counselor and teacher educator, who created the show to help teachers around the country build safe and caring communities in their classrooms.

“As soon as I heard about the fire, I contacted my teachers in Paradise and asked what I could do to help. The hardest thing to do after a tragedy is get back some sense of normalcy and we all agreed that a visit in the new year would be a positive step to help the students and staff do that” said May. “We can’t change what happened but we can inspire hope with a visit and continue to provide a daily routine that will help them rebuild their schools and their communities.”

May has also created a crowdfunding campaign to help teachers rebuild their classroom libraries and replace other educational resources. “Teachers told me they had lost every book, lesson plan, and other special resources that helped bringing the learning alive for the kids in their care. All they collected throughout their careers, some of them for over 20 years, is gone”. May added, “Elementary teachers spend an average of $500 a year out their own pocket to provide additional and necessary resources for their students and our goal is to raise enough money to help them begin again.”

May is flying to California from Philadelphia on January 9th and will visit students and teachers from Ponderosa Elementary on January 10th and Paradise Elementary on January 11th.

In addition to finding the right statutes for the legal research of your particular scenario, you can also browse through cases in digests and find ones that may contain relevant information to ensure that all aspects of research are covered.

Keep tabs

Keeping track of all of the documents that you have already been through is extremely essential to ensure that you do not have to resort to the same cases and documents over and over again. It’s also important to note that you must do so regardless of whether or not you have retrieved any relevant information from the source.

Now that you know of all of the steps that you need to follow to conduct research the traditional way, it will be easy for you to figure out how you want to proceed with looking for legal information.

Insurance and Credit Cards – Streamlining Your Cash Flow in the New Year

“Buddy Up with The Best” Est. 1994 ®

Learn how clinics can streamline their cash flow in the New Year and all year long.

Never take your eyes off the cash flow because it’s the lifeblood of business.”

— —Sir Richard Branson, business magnate, investor, author and philanthropist

MINNETONKA, MN, UNITED STATES, January 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Insurance and Credit Cards – Streamlining Your Cash Flow in the New Year

Welcome to Billing Buddies YouTube and Podcast series.
In this episode, we will be discussing streamlining your cash flow in the New Year by obtaining current insurance cards and credit card authorizations.
With the New Year upon us, it is especially important to get copies of your patients’ active insurance cards and to get credit card authorizations to secure their accounts with your clinic. These two steps will significantly increase your cash flow. In fact, these two simple tasks will, if followed, increase your cash flow all year long.
Let’s start with the understanding that in the fourth quarter of each year, Medicare and private insurance companies have Open Enrollment. Open Enrollment is when patients can switch coverage for the first of the coming year. Because so many of your patients may have changed insurance coverage the first of the year, it’s imperative to get new copies of insurance cards and to update your billers and billing software with the new policy numbers. Also, if you get denials from insurance companies that coverage is terminated, it is wise to immediately call or send a statement to the patient for the balance, so they will either pay or respond with their current insurance information.
In addition, at the first of the year, deductibles go back into effect. Many clinics are starting to secure the patient accounts with a credit cards on file. Securing a patient account with a credit card on file is a straight forward process. You need to have a form for the patient to complete and sign that gives their credit card information and permission for you to automatically charge their credit card for any balances due. If you need a sample form to secure credit cards on file, please email bonnie@billingbuddies.com and put in the subject line “Credit Card Authorization”. My email again is bonnie@billingbuddies.com spelled out b-o-n-n-i-e-@-b-i-l-l-i-n-g-b-u-d-d-i-e-s.com.
Finally, remember that all year long it is important to verify a patient’s active coverage by getting copies of their current insurance cards and it’s important to secure their account with your clinic by having a credit card authorization on file.

Seeing a loved one being struck by a serious disease and suffering can be incredibly exhausting, notes Dr. Paul Norwood in his newest published advice

Valley Endocrine and Research (N/A:N/A)

The most common complaint of patients suffering from serious illnesses – especially when they are on the older side – is that they feel lonely during appointments.”

— Dr. Paul Norwood, Valley Endocrine clinic in Fresno, California

FRESNO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 5, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In his newest article, nationally recognized doctor and researcher Paul Norwood, MD addresses those who surround the person afflicted by a disease, and shares his advice for them. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Norwood at https://PaulNorwoodMD.blogspot.com/

Regardless of how severe they may be, dealing with illnesses can be difficult. Diseases, conditions, and illnesses are generally not only associated with tremendous amounts of pain, but suffering from an illness can also be emotionally and psychologically draining. Add to that the fact that most treatments today cost an arm and a leg, and you’ve got yourself worrying about your financial situation amidst all of the pain and agony.

While calamity can strike at any time and is generally unannounced, seeing a loved one being struck by a serious disease and suffering can be incredibly exhausting for a number of different reasons. Not only is your mind constantly racing at how the treatment will progress, but you’re also left wondering about all the possibilities and the different ways in which you can offer your love and support to your friends and family in testing times.

Since we understand that you might not be able to think straight when your loved ones are undergoing treatment for a serious disease, we’ve got the perfect list of things to do in order to support your friends and family when they are
suffering.

Interested in learning how you can offer support to your loved one when they are struck by a serious disease? Read on to find out as we tell you the best and most thoughtful ways in which you can show your love and support.

Accept the situation

If you’re like most people, you might have a hard time wrapping your head around the fact that your loved one may not be in the best of health for the next few weeks. With that said, however, accepting the situation and coming to terms with the fact that your loved ones are going through a tough time is the best way to ensure that you’ll be able to provide them with the support and love that they need during a difficult phase in their lives.

If you’re too preoccupied with worrying about all that could have been done to prevent such a situation from arising in the first place, chances are that you won’t be able to provide your friends or family with the love and support that they need most when they are suffering from a serious illness, condition or disease. By accepting the situation, you will essentially divert your focus on ways to be there for them and cater to their every need when they are going through physical and emotional distress.

Show them unconditional love

The psychological aspect of serious and life threatening diseases can never be emphasized enough. While most patients at some point or the other begin to feel like they are burdening their friends and loved ones, this especially holds true for patients who are suffering from serious diseases and may be bedridden.

If your loved one is struck by a serious disease and needs your help and assistance with even the most basic of activities or tasks such as walking to the front door or eating, showing them unconditional love is your best bet. Since it is easy for patients to feel like they are troubling those around them too much, or that you do not want to spend time with them any longer, showing your sick friends and family unconditional love in these testing times is your best bet to ensure that they do not only feel valued, but also know that they have a support system that they can count on when the going gets tough.

Whether you can help out by preparing health and nutritional meals at home or making handmade heartfelt cards, it is important to leave no stone unturned when it comes to making your loved one feel better.

Give them company

The most common complaint of patients suffering from serious illnesses – especially when they are on the older side – is that they feel lonely during appointments. Being there for your loved one during their appointments when doctors are breaking the worst of news to them or providing them with action plans for treatment and regaining stability in life is one of the best ways of showing that you care.

Accompanying your loved ones on their doctor’s appointments also helps you give off positive vibes and show them that they are not alone. By being there with your ill friend or family member, you can also help them believe that they have a strong support system that will always be there for them no matter what.

Monitor their health

While your loved one with a serious illness or medical condition might have a team of healthcare professionals or doctors keeping a close eye on their case, keeping track of their health and monitoring it in any way possible is a great way to show your love and support.

Often, patients can get agitated about the fact that their loved ones are not in sight when they are being injected, having blood drawn, or being provided with pill after pill to gulp down. This is exactly why you should make it a point to keep track of the medications and health status of your loved one to ensure that they feel like they are still important to you. One thing, however, that it is important to note that in serious scenarios, doctors might not grant you permission to take things in your own hands since that could cause problems. Should that be the case, it is important to respect the decision and authority of the doctor or other medical professionals and continue to offer support in other ways.

Help out with finances

As mentioned earlier, treatments for serious illnesses can cause a fortune. Needless to say, patients are often distressed worrying about their financial situation and how they’ll be able to cope with all of the medical bills. For this reason, it is important to help out with the medical expenses of the patient in any way possible to ensure that they know that they are covered and don’t have one extra thing to worry about.

Paul Norwood, MD, leads the team at Valley Endocrine in Fresno, California. Valued by his community for his caring and kind personality as well as his skills as a physician, Dr. Paul Norwood is also respected nationwide for his expertise as an endocrinologist. In 1993, Dr. Norwood founded Valley Endocrine Clinic, which specializes in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, as well as Valley Research, which does clinical trials.
