Northwest Career College Earns Ninth Consecutive Talk Award for Outstanding Customer Satisfaction


Las Vegas career college receives high marks for customer satisfaction, earning it nine straight Talk Awards.

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, October 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Northwest Career College has educated thousands of students since it first opened its doors. Those students have received not only an education but a welcoming experience during their time in school. For its efforts in providing students with an amazing experience, Northwest Career College has earned nine consecutive Talk Awards for Customer Satisfaction.

Winners of the Talk Awards are based on The Stirling Center for Excellence’s independent, proprietary research and evaluation system, which identifies businesses with a track record of excellent customer service and satisfaction. The rating system combines data collected from nominations, online and other customer reviews, surveys, blogs, social networks, business-rating services, and other honors and accolades — all of which express the voice of the customer. Only those with a 4- or 5-star rating receive The Talk Award.

Since 1997, thousands of students have attended Northwest Career College and gone on to successful careers. Among the programs available are massage therapy, criminal justice, dental assisting, medical assisting, medical billing and coding, paralegal and legal assistant studies, pharmacy technician, and phlebotomy technician.

Initially founded by Dr. John Kenny as Northwest Massage School, the school was created to help people who did not have a set career path but knew they were interested in the healthcare field. As the need for trained healthcare providers grew, the school expanded its offerings and was renamed Northwest Health Careers. Further expansion has led to the current Northwest Career College, which offers a full range of educational possibilities to boost students’ personal growth, improve career outlooks and expand awareness of their own personal possibilities. The goal is for all students to be the best professionals they can be.

The school is built on the foundations of family instilled by Dr. Kenny. Once you enter the doors of Northwest, you are family. The school has a student-centered philosophy where students come first. Its open-door and open-heart approach to education set it apart from all the others. It’s a feeling you get when you first walk in the doors.

Instructors at Northwest are the leaders in their fields who are dedicated to teaching and training fellow professionals. In turn, the school’s graduates go on to become leaders in the field as well.

As a whole, Northwest has high expectations of excellence for its students and alumni. When students graduate, they are the school’s representative in the community, so they take everyone’s success very seriously. Northwest is now and forever committed to excellence.

Northwest’s main campus is located at 7398 Smoke Ranch Road in Las Vegas. For more information, call 702-389-7269 or visit https://www.northwestcareercollege.edu. Visit the school’s Award Page at https://www.thetalkawards.com/award/northwest-career-college.

Wayne Mullins, Owner of Ugly Mug Marketing, Wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Web Marketing Company- 2019”


Wayne Mullins, Owner of Ugly Mug Marketing

“We’re honored to include Wayne Mullins of Ugly Mug Marketing into our BoLAA family.” ~Aurora DeRose

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Wayne Mullins, Owner of Ugly Mug Marketing, wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Web Marketing Company- 2019”, according to Aurora DeRose, award coordinator for the Best of Los Angeles Award community.

The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed four years ago and consists of over 5,600 professional members living and working in Southern California. It celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles with a slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.”

“The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles, and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” expresses DeRose. “We’re honored to include Wayne Mullins of Ugly Mug Marketing into our BoLAA family.”

Ugly Mug Marketing is described as a business that goes wherever Wayne Mullins goes. The 34-year-old fan of marketing, behavioral psychology and neuro-linguistic programming states he’s been inspired by business leaders such as Ari Weinzweig, Robert Cialdini, Tim Ferriss, and Dan Kennedy, and often works at coffee shops close to home.

Ugly Mug Marketing is a web development and marketing company that uses a business model based on “outsourcing.” This means hiring people outside of the company to provide the skills needed to serve clients and get things done. The new, modern approach of outsourcing enables Mullins to multiply his personal expertise and time by accessing a team of freelance web developers, graphic designers and copywriters from around the globe.

“The way Ugly Mug Marketing works provides me with more time to spend with my wife and three children,” explains Mullins, “So why would I want to operate using the old, traditional ways of doing business that only takes you away from your family?”

However, getting results for their clients is still Ugly Mug Marketing’s primary objective, says Mullins. “That’s what makes us different than most. We approach business with something called the strategy of preeminence, which is simply putting the clients’ needs first. We view our relationship with our clients the same way an attorney views their client relationships. The attorney’s job is to put the best interest of their client first. We bring this same philosophy to the table.”

Ugly Mug Marketing also gives away free advice on their blog—www.MarketingConfessions.com. Here, Mullins shares the marketing secrets he’s learned along the way, and continues to learn. This blog has an annual readership of fifty thousand visitors. Mullins also recently released a new book titled, So You Have a Website…Now What?, which focuses on how a business can get the most out of their website.

“If you are looking for design or development services, Ugly Mug Marketing is a great solution,” states Neil Patel, one of the top influencers named by Wall Street Journal, “Wayne and his team are honest, fair, and reasonably priced. Best of all, they deliver the work on time.”

Author Wins Award for Calling-out Demi-God as a Wrongfully Celebrated Clear-cutter


Kam Karem Says, “Gilgamesh is the anti-hero for our times He obtained fame by destroying The Cedar Forest.”

ATLANTA, GEORGIA , UNITED STATES, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The burning of the rain forest in Brazil and out of control wild fires in California has spotlighted the impact of trees on climate change and global warming. These are not, however, only recent problems. A children’s book author blames a value system dating back over 4000 years to an ancient Sumerian King – Gilgamesh. In the celebrated poem, The Epic of Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh, a reputed demi-god, killed Humbaba, the protector of the famous Lebanese Cedar Forest, and then chopped down all the trees. Author Kam Karem has published a fiction book written from the perspective of Humbaba’s descendants and just today it garnished its third award.
In Ranger Nader & The Sunstruck Phantom, Ranger thinks he’s an ordinary 9th grader. Then he inherits a magic ax and learns he’s the new Guardian of the Forest, and, even more of a stunner, a demigod in training. Eons ago, another demigod, Gilgamesh—yes, THE Gilgamesh from The Epic of Gilgamesh—used the axe to clear the Forest, causing a Great Flood. Now, the evil king has returned to finish what he started. With the help of his sister and the axe of course, Ranger has to stop him.
According to Karem, one of the story’s underlying motifs is the constant struggle and tension between the consumers and protectors of our planet’s finite resources. “Gilgamesh is the anti-hero for our times. He sought and obtained fame for his destruction of the tremendous Cedar Forest, causing a great flood. Today, there are those who emulate him in their unfettered use and abuse of irreplaceable resources such as forests, rivers and the ocean.”

The story has resonated with book critics, awards panels, and readers of all ages. Just today, the Independent Author Network announced that Ranger Nader & The Sunstruck Phantom, is a winner in the prestigious 2019 IAN Book of the Year Awards. The IAN is an international contest open to all authors with 40 fiction and non-fiction categories. As per IAN: “When judging completed, Ranger Nader & The Sunstruck Phantom was selected as a finalist in one category: “Young Adult/Teen/New Adult.” You can read more about the IAN here: https://www.independentauthornetwork.com/2019-botya-winners.html. The book was also a finalist in the 2019 National Indie Excellence Award and was Long Listed by the 2019 Green Earth Book Awards. You can read more about all these awards here: For the NIEA go here – https://www.indieexcellence.com/13th-annual-finalists and for the Green Earth Book Awards go here – https://tinyurl.com/y5oxq29v.

Ranger Nader & The Sunstruck Phantom is book appropriate for children ten years and older. It’s on sale now at Amazon at https://amzn.to/2yMX15A. You can read more about Kam Karem at http://www.amazon.com/author/kamkarem.

Dirk Cussler chose the 2019 winner. Jeff Edwards awarded Landon Beach’s “The Sail” and A.W. Baldwin’s “Raptor Canyon” as co-finalists.

Winning the AWC competition “validated my decision to pursue full-time writing. I stopped my teaching career, and I felt like I could do it. It’s a wonderful validation.”

— AWC Grandmaster winner Jake Avilla

PHOENIX, AZ, USA, October 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dirk Cussler, best-selling author and Adventure Writers Competition finalist judge announced Jake Avila, author of the action-thriller novel “Cave Diver” as the winner of the 2019 Clive Cussler Grandmaster Award at the Clive Cussler Collector’s Society convention. During his acceptance speech, Jake said he was “surprised and delighted, a wonderful feeling”. He also recognized his co-finalists Landon Beach (The Sail) and A.W. Baldwin (Raptor Canyon), now his friends, and mentioned how honored he was to be in such company. All books are available on Amazon.

“It is no small feat to write an adventure novel that grabs a reader’s interest and keeps them turning the pages until the end,” said Dirk Cussler to a crowded room the final night of the convention. “All three of you were able to do that. Fantastic reads.”

Traveling all the way from Australia to the award ceremony with his father Ian, Jake said that winning the AWC competition “validated my decision to pursue full-time writing. I stopped my teaching career, and I felt like I could do it. It’s a wonderful validation. When you are an independent author it’s so hard top cut through, so hard to be noticed. To have an esteemed group of judges examine my work and really enjoy it…it’s fantastic.”

The Adventure Writers Competition is now in its ninth year and is specifically for novels in the action/adventure/thriller genre. “Each year we receive entries from all over the world, based on so many different subjects, it makes judges dizzy with excitement,” said Peter Greene, the Adventure Writers Competition Director. “This is a hard contest to win, and without the great support of the Clive Cussler Collector’s Society, Braveship Books and AJM Books, we just couldn’t make it happen. We exist to help writers get their work noticed. That’s it. And these three gentlemen deserve to be noticed!”

The 2020 Adventure Writers Competition will be open for submissions beginning January 1, 2020 and continue through April 30, 2020. www.adventurewriterscompetition.com

Marty Brounstein, Acclaimed Author, Wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Holocaust Book


Marty Brounstein, Acclaimed Author

“We’re honored to include Marty Brounstein into our BoLAA family.” ~Aurora DeRose

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, October 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Marty Brounstein, acclaimed author and keynote speaker, wins Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Holocaust Book – 2019”, according to Aurora DeRose, award coordinator for the Best of Los Angeles Award community. His powerful book, “Two Among the Righteous Few: A Story of Courage in the Holocaust” features the remarkable story of Frans Wijnakker and his wife Mien, two Catholics, who saved the lives of two dozen Jews in Southern Holland during the Holocaust. His speaking tour with the book is now into its 9th year with over 700 events so far.

The “Best of Los Angeles Award” community was formed four years ago and consists of over 5,600 professional members living and working in Southern California. It celebrates the best people, places and things in Los Angeles with a slogan “No Ads. No B.S. Only the Best.”

“The mission of the community is to celebrate the best of Los Angeles, and allow its community members to connect with other members who share the highest standards of quality and integrity,” expresses DeRose. “We’re honored to include Marty Brounstein into our BoLAA family.”

“Two Among the Righteous Few” has not always been Marty’s main work. For 25 years, he led the consulting firm The Practical Solutions Group, serving a wide variety of clients on issues of leadership and organizational effectiveness. Through this work, he wrote eight books related to business management, from contributing author to sole author, including “Communicating Effectively For Dummies,” “Coaching and Mentoring For Dummies” and “Managing Teams for Dummies.”

However, his 9th book is quite different and special. It has put Marty in the interfaith business, and takes him back to his early career as an educator, when he was teaching history including the Holocaust. This true and remarkable story has a meaningful personal connection as well, which Marty reveals in his engaging storytelling presentations.

Marty has been on an unexpected journey of delivering storytelling presentations to a wide variety of audiences and facilitating book discussions in school classrooms. He started his 9th year of this journey, 710 events with more coming. The events have occurred throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, his home base, and 15 other cities, with New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Seattle, and Boston among them. The engagements have been in such places as religious institutions, service organizations, personal homes, bookstores, many schools, universities, libraries, and history and Holocaust museums. Furthermore, on this journey Marty continues to study and tell stories about others in the Holocaust involved in resistance and rescue, Jewish and non-Jewish alike. He does so in presentations titled Heroes of the Holocaust.

Marty’s keynote presentation and workshop titled “The Courage and Compassion to Do the Right Thing: A Lesson in Making a Positive Difference” continues to grow and has also been well-received at professional conferences and workplaces.

One highlight of Marty’s journey was presenting at the invitation of the Dutch Consulate General of San Francisco in March 2014. He has also been a keynote speaker for Holocaust Remembrance Day events in Chicago, Phoenix, Seattle, and New York and coming up in Reno, NV in April 2020.

Finally, Marty was recently recognized with The Jefferson Award presented by the organization Multiplying Good. They recognize individuals who perform acts of public service and good for America. This honor came about through the nomination by a great supporter of Marty on his journey, Jodie Russi. Jodie was the first teacher to bring Marty into a classroom for a book discussion with her students on this special story.

Choroideremia Research Foundation Announces First Annual Randy Wheelock Research Award


Researchers may submit proposals for projects related to finding treatments or a cure for CHM by November 15, 2019

SPRINGFIELD, MA, UNITED STATES, October 9, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Choroideremia Research Foundation (CRF) is honored to announce the creation of the annual Randy Wheelock Research Award in support of emerging scientists and research professionals working on Choroideremia (CHM) or related issues. Eligible recipients will be either doctoral or post-doctoral candidates and professionals, and awards will be granted in the amount of $50,000.

Randy Wheelock, of Johnson City, TN, became actively involved with CRF in 2007, working tirelessly to learn all that he could about the retina and Choroideremia. He was a businessman who turned himself into a scientist and would not take “no” for an answer. As CRF’s Chief Advisor for Research and Therapy Development, Randy was an integral part of the organization’s achievements over the years. He collaborated with researchers and other rare disease groups to leverage assets and scientific knowledge in search of treatment options and a cure for CHM.

Unfortunately, Mr. Wheelock passed away this year, and the CRF believes in keeping his dream alive by initiating the Randy Wheelock Research Award, which will be offered annually via a competitive application process.

Individuals interested in applying for the First Annual CRF Randy Wheelock Research Award should submit a one-page executive proposal, including a lay language summary of their project and a program budget, along with a resume/CV, to info@curechm.org by November 15, 2019.

About Choroideremia
Choroideremia (CHM) is a rare inherited form of blindness affecting approximately 1 in 50,000 people. Due to its x-linked inheritance pattern males are most severely affected with females usually experiencing much milder visual impairment. Symptoms begin in early childhood with night blindness and restriction of visual field being the earliest noticeable effects, eventually progressing to complete blindness. An estimated 6,000 people in the United States and 10,000 in the European Union are impacted by Choroideremia. There are currently no approved treatments for Choroideremia.

About the Choroideremia Research Foundation Inc.
The Choroideremia Research Foundation was founded in 2000 as an international fundraising and patient advocacy organization to stimulate research on CHM. Since its inception, the CRF has provided over $2.5 million in research awards and is the largest financial supporter of CHM research worldwide. Research funded by the CRF has led to the development of a CHM animal model, the pre-clinical production of gene therapy vectors currently in clinical trials, and the CRF Biobank which stores tissue and stem cell samples donated by CHM patients.

“Ethel Percy Andrus has been the recipient of many awards for her contributions,” McCann said. “We add our M2W® voice of appreciation to her memory and the ongoing work of the organization she founded, AARP. She sought to change Americans’ perception of aging. As she once explained, “Old age is not a defeat, but a victory, not a punishment, but a privilege.”

“While she was the first woman high school principal in California, long-time educator Andrus first founded a separate organization, the National Retired Teachers Association (NRTA) in 1947,” McCann explained. “She realized that retired teachers were living on very small pensions, often without any health insurance. She approached more than 30 companies to offer health insurance to retired teachers, before she found someone willing to take a chance on NRTA members in 1956. The organization expanded its membership to all retirees and became AARP in 1958.Today, the NRTA is still a division of AARP, and serves as its educator community.”

“But Andrus didn’t confine her efforts to health insurance and pensions. One of her first undertakings at AARP was to organize a dozen tours to Europe for older people to travel in small groups at a leisurely pace. Under her supervision, “Freedom Home” — a full-scale prototype house that adapted traditional architectural details to better meet the needs of older people — was built for the 1961 White House Conference on Aging. And long before the term “ageism” was coined, she was among the first to argue that older workers should not be shunted aside or forced into retirement. Today, AARP continues her legacy, empowering people to choose how they live as they age, helping them navigate complex life transitions and supporting people 50-plus in the areas of health security, financial resilience and personal fulfillment.”

Moms Many Roles

“The award really is another M2Moms® / M2W® learning opportunity for the marketers in the audience,” McCann, said. “It’s an example of understanding and meeting the needs of women and moms. Of course, M2Moms® also features multiple executive education and technical sessions. Notably this year the program includes how moms and women are using every screen at their disposal to network, search, get advice, recommend, shop & buy. The tech sessions & media discussions will be presented by Google, Facebook/Instagram, YouTube, Foursquare, BuzzFeed, JetBlack, and Edison Research. Additionally, we’ll explore how “smart” innovation is changing the home environment.”

More 2019 Highlights:

“We’re also looking at how intergenerational marketing has become a key component of marketing to moms and women. It includes timely new presentations on the very real differences between millennial moms and the massive emerging cohort of Gen Z moms and women. And we’re seeing how micro-insights help marketers increase their research ROI and get the most out of their data and info. We’ll also take an in-depth look at the moms market in China. Every year 17 million new babies are born in China versus only 4 million new US babies. It absolutely dwarfs the US market,”

Creative Engagement:

“It’s not all work. In addition to the “This Woman Means Business” Award “Mom First” award, we’ll also present the “Mom First” award, which is given every year to a mom who started something, when in her role as a mother, she saw a need and filled it first as a mom at home and then in the marketplace to make a difference in the lives of others.”
