Today is designated as World Hepatitis Awareness Day. Agencies and offices around the globe, within national governments, alongside state, provincial and local partners, all are working to raise awareness of the importance of vaccination for hepatitis B, testing for hepatitis B and C, the availability of effective care and curative treatment, and the serious health consequences resulting from undiagnosed and untreated viral hepatitis.
The day affords all an important opportunity to raise more widespread awareness of viral hepatitis and its impact on the world’s population and expand healthcare’s coordinated efforts to improve the health of the estimated time 290 million people living with viral hepatitis unawares. Without finding the undiagnosed and linking them to care, millions will continue to suffer, and lives will be lost.
On World Hepatitis Day, 28 July, people from across the world will take action and raise awareness to “find the missing millions” – this year’s t
Remember that YOU, the hiring manager, are ultimately responsible for all the actions taken when making a hire. This includes the actions of recruiters, support staff and interview helpers.
“Why recruiters,” you ask?
Your Recruiting Team Should Amp the Brand
You have a responsibility to work with your recruiting partners by providing them with the specifics of what you are looking for, the feedback on information submitted and building a partnership to ensure success in finding your next A Player. Take time upfront to develop the ideal candidate summary, then take time to screen resumes together. If you do this at the beginning of a relationship, less will be required in the future to have the results you want.
Choose your recruiting partners carefully. Remember they are an extension of your brand (the company’s and yours personally).
A good recruiter is able to tell a story around a company that is compelling and easy to understand. This is how they are able to attract good
As the Unites States pauses to reflect on its history, the ideals birthed at its inception, and the strength it projects around the world today, we want to take this time to reflect on the great strength we admire in the companies and candidates we work with and celebrate the upcoming success you will build in the remainder of this and all the years to follow. We are thankful to be a part of that.
So many of the ideals that went into forming our Great Nation and keep it strong are those we can all aspire to in our work. All of these and more will help continue to shape our success and make us ever stronger. And Bravery – to Persist Relentlessly – is one of the greatest. For us all, it could be said we will become and remain the premier organizations in our respective spaces as long as we are teams of the brave, devotedly doing more and going further to serve more deeply than those around us.
As we celebrate our Nation’s birthday, let us celebrate and then decide, together, to e
Hiring a new employee is a time-consuming and expensive process that can make human resource and hiring managers feel pressured to cut corners just to get through it. While the frustration is understandable, simply checking the box is a poor approach. A bad hire ends up costing a company in numerous ways, including lost productivity, lost wages, lost revenue, damage to reputation, and having to go through the hiring process again when that employee quits or gets fired.
Here are a few common signs you are about to make hiring mistakes:
Going with Your Gut
There is a lot of talk about how people should trust their gut and go with their first impression. That might work in other areas of life, but it is rarely a good idea when it comes to hiring an employee. Whether a hiring manager personally likes a job candidate has no bearing on that individual having the right qualifications for the job or fitting into company culture. In the Genomics, Genetics, BioTech and Diagnostics Industries w
Don Henley On The Future on Glenn Frey’s Son In The Eagles
Could the Eagles have continued without the help of Deacon Frey? No according to Henley. The singer/drummer told Rolling Stone magazine they needed “family blood’ to keep the Eagles’ spirit alive.
So is there a specific time on how long Deacon will be in the Eagles? Henley said, the “wonderful part of it and the sadness that goes with it. I’ve told him that he doesn’t need to feel obligated to do this indefinitely. If he wants to start his own band and write his own music, he should do that. He can do this as long as we all agree that we want to do it. He may want to carve out his own future, and that’s just fine.” As many have pointed out, not that Eagles need any more fans, Deacon is sure to bring even younger fans to their shows. It’s extraordinary what that young man has done. I saw him sing “Peaceful Easy Feeling” at his father’s memorial service. As difficult as that might have been, he was so brave and composed. I’m sure, on the inside, he was churning. After a few months went by, I thought, “Why not see if he would like to be in the band?”
As for advice Henley and Joe Walsh told him to keep his eye on the work. Not to over-think any of their shows.
On that other new kid in town, Vince Gill Henley said, “It was a no-brainier for us to get Vince. Nobody else, other than Deacon, was even discussed. Glenn played golf with him. And Vince was in a band called Pure Prairie League. They did a style of music similar to ours – country-influenced pop. He fit like a glove. And his personality is great. He’s just glad to be there. He’s probably the happiest guy onstage.”
The Eagles are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their biggest album “Hotel California” by releasing a remastered repackaged edition. – by John Beaudin

Oh my! You have just learned that your job has been eliminated or you’ve been demoted from your current role. This is all too common in the current crisis.
What do you do? First of all, try not to panic.
Downsizing does happen… but not to me, you say? First thing to do is take some deep breaths and move past the denial stage. Try to relax and put together an action plan. Just like anything else in life, you need to start taking steps to better your situation and get what you want.
There are a few “housekeeping” items you have to take care of straight away.
Collect Your Final Paycheck
Make sure that you know when you will receive your last paycheck, and how it will be delivered to you. Some states require employers pay it immediately; others may allow a short time lag. Make sure you get everything that is due to you.
Entitlements could include monies for overtime, back pay, accrued vacation, or sick leave. Talk to the appropriate person in your HR department to learn what y
We just happen to be writing this to you on Top Gun Day. The Navy’s elite pilot training program, officially named the “Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor” program, or SFTI (pronounced ‘siff-tee’), is not an actual school, but rather a graduate level, practical application course loaded with classroom and real-world training and tactics development. It was called Top Gun long before the movie came out in 1986, yet today, you’ll have to give your instructor or squadron mate a “fiver” if you ever refer to it as such.
During their 12 weeks at TOPGUN, pilots learn to “think outside the 9 dots”, operate on the edge of the envelope, “fly below the deck”, or to be a real Maverick, using alternative fighter maneuverability and countermeasure tactics, time management and preparation.
It is the ultimate dojo. It was the first Center of Excellence before the term even existed.
Above all else, its graduates learn how to take what they have mastered there and share i
Have you ever wondered how you – as an independent band or artist – can get your brand new music video aired on MTV? Watch this video to learn more, and reach out to Andy at HIP by calling 732-613-1779 or email info@HIPVideoPromo.com.
Hello everyone, Andy Gesner, owner and president of HIP Video Promo!
As someone who has worked in music video promotion for nearly 20 years, I want to share with you the biggest question I am asked here at HIP: how do I get my music video on MTV? Well, ladies and gentlemen, attaching the brand of your artistry to an international brand like MTV is not easy.
You can look online, and they’re going to direct you to a company called DMDS- Digital Music Delivery Service. They’re in Canada, and they are expensive. Why pay them a large sum of money to have your new music video close-captioned, quality checked, and then submitted through their portal to MTV, mtvU, MTV’s Pluto channels? All kinds of opportunities are there, but if it’s wildly expensive, you’re
