Executive Coach Dr. Marshall Goldsmith to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

RANCHO SANTA FE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — CUTV News today announced the world’s #1 Leadership Thinker and #1 Executive Coach Dr. Marshall Goldsmith will be a featured guest on CUTV News Radio.

Dr. Goldsmith is an authority on helping successful leaders achieve positive, lasting change in behavior for themselves, their people and their teams.

“A leader casts a long shadow. The higher up you go the longer that shadow grows. Positive change in the most influential leaders has an impact that can be felt across their entire organizations,” says Dr. Goldsmith. “The people I help have such an influence over so many other people; as they get better, literally thousands of people feel the impact.”

30 years ago, no CEO would admit to having a coach. Today, Dr. Goldsmith is the author or editor of 35 books, which have sold over two million copies, including New York Times bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.

If you search “Helping Successful Leaders” on Google, of the first 500 entries are links to Marshall Goldsmith. Dr. Goldsmith has worked with over 200 major CEOs including Frances Hesselbein (Girl Scouts) to Alan Mulally (Ford). To date, nearly 2,000 people have been trained in Dr. Goldsmith’s coaching process.

"The key to success in coaching is having great clients. My business is generated by my clients,” says Dr. Goldsmith. The fact I have such great clients is why I have such great business, why I have such a great reputation and why I almost always succeed.”

Dr. Goldsmith says the best leaders want to work on being a role model.

“Every company has values, right? But if you don't see the CEO live that way, the values don't mean anything. And it's not just the CEO, it's the people who report to the CEO who are also very important, because they manage thousands of people. So they need to be great role models for whatever the values of the company are. If you see the company preaching X and the CEO is doing Y, it doesn't work.”

There are six questions Dr. Goldsmith highly recommends for everyone, not just CEOs:

Did I do my best to set clear goals?
Did I do my best to make progress toward achieving my goals?
Did I do my best to find meaning?
Did I do my best to be happy?
Did I do my best to fully engaged?
Did I do my best to build positive relationships?

Dr. Goldsmith’s daily question process can help you keep track of what's most important in your life to achieve positive long-term change and improve yourself as a leader, friend, family member.

“Although I work with CEOs, you don't have to be a CEO to use my process,” says Dr.Goldsmith. “Anyone can use this process to develop themselves because it relates to everybody.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Marshall Goldsmith in a two-part interview with Jim Masters on December 10th at and December 17th at 2pm EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio

Royston Carr Asset Management Comments as Chinese Manufacturing Activity Slightly Up in November

Royston Carr Asset Management – Factory activity suffers due to weak demand amid lingering threat of higher US tariffs.

TAIPEI CITY, TAIWAN, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the decline in new export orders continuing last month, China’s factory activity increased only marginally in November according to the Caixin/Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI).

Royston Carr Asset Management analysts say new orders have been losing steam over the last few quarters as China’s economic growth cools in the face of US Sino trade tensions. A sub-index gauging new orders in the world’s second largest economy did improve slightly last month, reaching 50.9 from 50.4 in October but this was following a price cut by Chinese manufacturers trying to offset weak demand.

Although exports have so far maintained their momentum, a lack of new orders amid the threat of increased US trade tariffs from early next year have weighed on China’s slowing economy.

A sub-index measuring new export orders showed that new export orders had declined to 47.7, down from 48.8 in October. Royston Carr Asset Management analysts say this is due to weakening international demand.

On Sunday at the G20 summit which took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the US and China agreed to hold off on imposing any additional or increased tariffs on each other’s imports for a period of 90 days while the two countries try to negotiate a long term solution to their trade-related differences.

However, analysts at Royston Carr Asset Management say this may not help China’s economic woes, with declining orders from clients causing factory productivity to stall in November after many months of growth.

Brandon Carlisle Has Released His Latest Novel

In a time before Aids when San Francisco was becoming a beacon of hope for the gay community two people with diverse backgrounds take a chance to find love.

BURBANK, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brandon Carlisle is the author of five novels, primarily falling within the gay romance genre. His latest novel opens in San Francisco in 1974 during the blossoming of the gay community in the city. San Francisco has always been a welcoming place for alternative thought and lifestyles, from Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg in the fifties, to the Hippie movement in the sixties. When the seventies arrived, it was the gay movement that took wing. Bars were no longer shuttered from the streets, but had picture windows. Neighborhoods like Polk Gulch in the mid-seventies had couples holding hands as they walked down the street. The gay parades had drag queens, royal courts, and eccentric characters of every sort. Thrown into this mix were also those seeking the simple life of a partner, home, and the quiet life. This was not Disneyland though. Outside of these little enclaves there could be dangers, but for the most part life was good.

Below is a brief synopsis of "A San Francisco Romance: The Story of Ryan and Leland"

It was during this period that Ryan McClure lived in San Francisco and built a life for himself. He hadn't found his prince charming, but made a small circle of friends, found a job he loved at a well-respected hotel, and lived a comfortable, quiet life. Generally satisfied to stay at home and read a book, he would venture out on occasion with his friends.

One afternoon while meeting his friends at their favorite neighborhood coffee shop for lunch his best friend pointed out a striking man in a dark suit across the street. Ryan recognized the man from a news release he saw at work.
Leland Carter's adult life centered around responsibility. Inheriting the family business shortly after graduating from Harvard he has had no time for relationships or any kind of personal involvement. A dalliance here and there, or a call to an escort was all there was time for.

His purchase of The Exeter House was a personal goal, not a business plan. It kept alive one of his fondest memories of a special time with his family. With an agreement settled for the sale it was time to explore the city. Riding a cable car from Nob Hill to Polk Street he explored the most active gay community in the city. Watching people going about their business being who they were with no worries was a novel experience for the reserved businessman.
Stopping in at a local bar, he sat and let his gaze wander to the other end where he spotted a fair complexioned young man with gorgeous copper hair. For the first time in many years he fancied what it might be like to actually get to know someone.

Two people with widely different backgrounds and values are thrown together. Personal fears and challenges need to be overcome if they are to have any semblance of happiness.

This is a story for romantics, not for someone looking for erotica; however, it is a story for adults.
The novel is available through Amazon at the link below.

MedPro Partners With PCIHIPAA To Offer Compliance Services to Healthcare Providers

Offering Addresses A Key Challenge for Many Organizations Seeking To Safeguard Patient Information (PHI)

Our partnership adds to our waste management solution and aligns with our strategy to save healthcare providers time and money”

— George Shanine, CEO MedPro

NAPERVILLE, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — MedPro, a leader in waste management disposal services, is pleased to announce its new partnership with PCIHIPAA, a leading Payments Card Industry (PCI) and HIPAA compliance provider. The partnership is focused on protecting MedPro clients from the onslaught of HIPAA violations which include ransomware attacks and data breaches impacting medical and dental practices throughout the United States.

According to the site HHS.gov (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), over 870,000 patient records were breached just in the month of July 2018. Protected Health Information (PHI) continues to be under attack as hackers strive to monetize the stolen data on the dark web. The types of HIPAA violations most often identified are:

1. Impermissible uses and disclosures of protected health information (PHI)
2. Lack of technology safeguards of PHI
3. Lack of adequate contingency planning in case of a data breach or ransomware attack
4. Lack of administrative safeguards of PHI
5. Lack of a mandatory HIPAA risk assessment
6. Lack of executed Business Associate Agreements
7. Lack of employee training and updated policies and procedures

“At MedPro we are building a center of excellence for all healthcare providers. We vetted many HIPAA compliance providers and believe PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program is the right program to add to our current product suite. Our partnership adds to our waste management solution and aligns with our strategy to save healthcare providers time and money, said George Shanine, CEO, MedPro. “We are looking forward to working with PCIHIPAA and providing our clients with an added layer of savings, confidence, and peace of mind."

PCIHIPAA’s OfficeSafe Compliance Program provides a number of key features and benefits that enable busy practices and office managers to easily comply with HIPAA requirements. The OfficeSafe Compliance Program includes:

• HIPAA Policies and Procedures – a guided navigation to easily create, update, and record your HIPAA Policies and Procedures
• HIPAA Checklist – an easy checklist to follow the compliance status of your office
• Online HIPAA Employee Training – comprehensive training options for staff to provide insight into latest HIPAA Regulations
• HIPAA Compliance Webinars – education webinars to learn more about HIPAA Regulations
• PCI and HIPAA Data Breach, Non-Compliance, Privacy, Network Security and Ransom Insurance Coverage
• Identity Restoration for doctors and their families
• Encrypted Data Backup and E-mail Services
• Annual PCI Compliance and Certification (Annual SAQ / Quarterly IP Scans)

“We are excited about our partnership with MedPro. They have saved the healthcare industry millions of dollars on waste management services, and continue to push the envelope with helping healthcare providers. PCIHIPAA aligns closely with MedPro because we also help practices save time and money on Payment Card Industry and HIPAA compliance.” said Jeff Broudy, CEO of PCIHIPAA. “We are changing lives by removing the uncertainties surrounding compliance and patient data privacy and security issues. We find that many practices don't have the resources to navigate HIPAA law, and are unaware of even their most common vulnerabilities.”

About MedPro
MedPro was founded in 2009 out of a need for lower cost medical waste disposal services after hearing complaints about regular and frequent price increases within the waste disposal industry. The company began in Illinois and has grown into a premiere waste disposal company, servicing 44 of the 50 states. MedPro provides regulated pick-up, transportation, treatment and disposal services for regulated medical waste, biohazard waste, sharps, and pharmaceuticals (RX). They also provide a mail back sharps container service and safety compliance training.

Are people dying from what they don’t know?

Drug-Free World Foundation launches Truth About Drugs campaign to educate on emerging threat of synthetic drugs

The drug crisis is not just a problem for ‘others.’ Drug education is the responsibility of all citizens. It needs to be a shoulder to shoulder effort.”

— Rev. Susan Taylor

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, December 6, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — WASHINGTON, DC – The Foundation for a Drug-Free World announced its campaign for 2019 focus on educating people about the dangers of synthetic drugs. While many people are now aware of the opioid epidemic and how easily one can get addicted to prescription pain killers, synthetics are an emerging threat overwhelming our cities and medical infrastructure.

In June 2018, more than 300 people overdosed on tainted synthetic cannabinoid, also known as “K2” or “synthetic Marijuana”, in a two-week period in Washington, DC, alone. Three people died after using K2 the next month according to the medical examiner’s report.

Many of those working to prevent drug abuse have noted that those on the street have no idea what synthetic drugs are composed of or what they are ingesting when smoking or eating drug-laced foods including brownies, popcorn and cookies. With the internet today, anyone can create or order one or more of a multitude of synthetic drugs.

According to the DEA website, synthetic marijuana is “A synthetic version of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, K2/Spice is a mixture of plant material sprayed with synthetic psychoactive chemicals. Often looks like potpourri and typically labeled ‘not for human consumption.’ Dangerous to purchase from Internet because its origins and chemical amounts are unknown. The ingredients and strength of products containing synthetic cannabinoids are almost impossible for the user to know.”

What happened in Washington is just a glimpse into what is occurring nation wide according to the Center for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration. According to National Public Radio, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says it is tracking multiple outbreaks across the country associated with synthetic cannabinoids use and The Food and Drug Administration is warning of “severe illness and death” that have resulted from the use of contaminated synthetic marijuana products in recent months in several states.

A wide range of government agencies and non-profits including the US Attorney’s Office, the Department of Behavioral Health, the Foundation for a Drug-Free World, the DC Prevention Centers, Court Services and Offenders Supervision Agency and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner meet monthly to strategize on how to reach vulnerable populations.

“It is imperative that citizens educate themselves so in turn they can share the truth about drugs with their children, neighbors and co-workers. Knowing that drugs are poisons, knowing what dealers are lacing drugs with and knowing what is in the drug you are taking can save a person’s life,” said Drug-Free World Faith Liaison Rev. Susan Taylor of the Church of Scientology. “The drug crisis is not just a problem for ‘others.’ Drug education is the responsibility of all citizens. It needs to be a shoulder to shoulder effort.”

To respond and alert people to the new dangerous drug epidemic from synthetic drugs, Drug-Free World has started holding regular seminars and has distributed tens of thousands of its award-winning drug education booklets and videos throughout the Washington, DC, area at weekly drug education events.

The Foundation for a Drug Free World, a non-profit based out of Los Angeles, supported by the Church of Scientology, that focuses on grassroots level drug prevention and education and provides high quality materials to health counselors, teachers, Sheriff's departments and police, all over the world. Through the Foundation and its volunteers and partners, more than 62 million of the Foundation's educational booklets have been distributed, tens of thousands of drug awareness events have been held, and the Foundation's public service announcements have reached more than 260 million viewers in 123 countries. Successful uses of these materials are featured on the Scientology.TV network.

Breakside Brewery has supported the organization in the past with gift donations and special event, and is expanding support this holiday season with giving trees on each floor of its Slabtown location. Visitors can select tags and donate gifts to kids in need. There may even be a visit or two from Santa for kids and the over 21 crowd alike!

Breakside Brewery’s Slabtown location is open from 11 am to 10 pm Sunday through Thursday, and closes at 11 pm on Friday and Saturday. Gifts for New Avenues for Youth will be accepted until closing on December 23rd. More information by calling (503) 444-7597.
