USRoadWarriors.Com Launches with Four Niche Recruitment Sites for Professional Drivers

Lifestyle, careers, news and information sites focus on building a positive image of the transportation industry.

Round Rock, TX, USA — USRW LLC, parent company of (, a lifestyle, careers, news and information portal for professional drivers and truckers, has announced the launch of four niche recruitment sites designed to appeal to a broad group of transportation professionals. ( focuses on all individuals that make their living behind the wheel including local delivery drivers, OTR or “Over the Road” truckers, dump truck drivers and even corporate drivers for companies like FEDEX or UPS.

“Most trucker sites unintentionally exclude these drivers. Having just returned from the GATS Great American Trucking show in Dallas, I found that there were many large employers seeking drivers of all kinds represented at the show,” noted Carl Braun, Co-Founder and Publisher of

Braun has a 20-year history in the job board industry starting with his first site in 1996 called He has since launched dozens of job boards in niche categories like diversity trucking and veterans. follows the trend with several sites designed to appeal to growth opportunity segments in the industry.

With only 6% of drivers being female, job board ( appeals to perhaps the largest hiring opportunity for the transportation industry. ( seeks out minority drivers and ( helps connect companies with returning military and veterans, a very active segment largely due to the patriotic nature of trucking companies and the unique skills many veterans bring to their future employers.

Each of these sites provides visitors with original content and articles written specifically for women, minorities and veterans along with thousands of job opportunities with companies highly motivated to consider them.

There is currently a 73.500 driver shortage in the US and the American Trucking Association projects an 890,000 driver shortage over the next decade.

“Transportation employers are faced with tough decisions today and in the future. The average age of drivers is 52 and the market is overwhelmingly white and male. Over the next several years, many of these drivers will retire leaving a huge gap in the space. Actively recruiting women, minorities and veterans will play an important role in filling the growing needs,” Braun said. intends to help build the image of the trucking industry into one where everyone is welcome to join and the career opportunities are appreciated for their stability, pay and mobile lifestyle.

Author John Simmons Releases His New Novel – Monsieur Le 6: 2016 Presidential Election Edition

Provocative new novel features US Presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Staten Island, NY, USA — Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has unwittingly resurrected a literary novel in which the fictionalized version of the candidate undergoes sex change surgery to wreak social and political havoc. Monsieur le 6, a hilarious but powerful mashup of sex and politics which could not find a publisher when author John Simmons first composed it, will debut as an eBook in time for the election (Apple River Press, $2.99).

Several characters in the novel originally bore made-up names, said Simmons, the author of several novels and works of nonfiction. “With Trump running for president, and other characters in the novel now dead, the masks can come off,” said Simmons. Other roles in the satiric send-up of contemporary politics belong to former Mayor of New York Ed Koch and his Commissioner of Consumer Affairs, Bess Myerson, with appearances by George H. W. Bush, Cardinal John J. O’Connor, and Jimmy Swaggart.

Monsieur le 6 might have remained on a shelf in Simmons’ closet but for the outsized and outrageous success of candidate Trump together with an unintended assist from The New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, who published an op-ed, “If Donald Trump Changed Genders,” on February 27, 2016. That reminded Simmons that his fictionalized Trump instigated the novel’s most outrageous conceit – genitals exchanged in high places.

As high satire, Monsieur le 6 brings the Marquis de Sade to bear on American politics. Sade, famous for his pornographic works, wrote extensively about politics. Simmons also relied on Herman Melville’s famed The Confidence Man to insure an American feel and context. Today the novel’s ripped-from-the-headlines content should have even greater appeal. Besides the intersection of sex and political corruption, themes include mass incarceration, abortion, urban poverty, and police brutality.

Monsieur le 6 may shock today just as it did in the early 1990s, says Simmons. “The San Francisco publisher City Lights, which had done Allen Ginsberg’s Howl, wanted to publish but decided it could not. The novel acquired nice rejection letters although some agents were less than enthusiastic. One suggested that, as with Nabokov’s Lolita, the novel be stored under a rock for a thousand years.”

He was the recipient of a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts in 2011; he and his wife, Jocelyne Barque, are currently completing translation of Aline and Valcour, a monumental novel by Marquis de Sade.

“The Girl Who Tried to Catch the Moon” Inspires Young Readers to Pursue Their Dreams

First time author, Ashby Bland, brilliantly captures the idea of working toward a goal with a simple, yet profound voice.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL (USA), August 27th, 2016 — You’ve heard the quote “if at first you don’t succeed, try-try again.” The main character in this new children’s picture, “The Girl Who Tried to Catch the Moon” brings the idea of being persistent to life. First time author, Ashby Bland, brilliantly captures the idea of working toward a goal with a simple, yet profound voice.

“I want young readers to have the confidence to go for their dreams,” said Ashby Bland, author and recently enrolled freshman at Columbia University. “Too many are quick to tell people they can’t do something; this book was written to encourage readers to set their goals and then persistently work towards achieving them.”

Ms. Bland first penned “The Girl Who Tried to Catch” the Moon when she was just four years old. Over the years she would stumble upon the story and make little refinements but the message always stayed the same. “You can do anything you put your mind to,” said Bland.

People discouraged Ms. Bland from applying to Columbia University, number four on the list of most difficult universities to get into according to the 2016 Hardest to Get survey which ranks 1,349 colleges based on acceptance rates. However, she had a goal of attending college there and set her sights on being accepted. She begins her freshman year this fall where she is studying Creating Writing.

Ms. Bland has been writing short stories, poems and novels since her early childhood and hopes that her first book, “The Girl Who Tried to Catch the Moon” is the start of a series of stories about girls and boys who try different things in their life.

“I know that young readers will be captivated by the colorful illustrations that accompany this inspiring tale,” said Lisa Umina, founder and publisher of Halo Publishing International. “Ashby has written a wonderful story that will help children see that, even if a dream seems impossible, like catching the moon, if you try hard enough you just might be successful.”

“I am excited to see this story come to life and be available for children all over,” said Bland. “I hope young readers are encouraged by this story of having a dream, working hard, overcoming obstacles, and problem solving to eventually see your dream become a reality.”

Certainly for Ms. Bland, this delightful story is a testament to her persistence, problem solving skills and ultimate success.

“The Girl Who Tried to Catch the Moon” is available in hard cover for $18.95 through:

Rosendin Electric Receives 2016 Constructech Gold Vision Award for Software Tool to Standardize Field Payroll Processes

New Time Tracking Integration Solution Wins Top Honors for Streamlining Payroll, Eliminating Errors, and Accurately Tracking Work Hours.

San Jose, CA, USA — Rosendin Electric (, one of the nation’s largest private electrical contractors and an employee-owned company, has received a 2016 Gold Vision Award from Constructech for developing a process to streamline and standardize field payroll for offices and job sites across the country. The new payroll solution eliminates coding errors, saves administration time on data entry and remediation, and provides project supervisors an extremely accurate picture of labor utilization and requirements, which is a real advantage in competitive bidding.

The Constructech Vision Awards acknowledge the accomplishments of companies that have applied technology in innovative ways to remain competitive in the field of construction. Rosendin Electric won this year’s Gold Vision award for developing Time Entry, a custom application designed to integrate AboutTime mobile resource management software with Oracle’s financial accounting system. The new Time Entry system has allowed Rosendin Electric to standardize payroll processing across all company offices. This system eliminates coding errors, reduces payroll processing time, and provides an accurate daily report of time worked. Said one project manager, “We now have validation in place. The new system enables us to catch errors we have not been able to in the past. We also reprocess fewer corrected paychecks thanks to the new system.”

“Rosendin Electric is continually assessing new technology and strategies that improve efficiency, but every new technology solution has to prove itself cost-effective,” said Diya Peter, Operations Applications Lead for Rosendin Electric. “Our new Time Entry system has already substantially reduced administration time and payroll errors. It has the added benefit of making our field superintendents more efficient and it gives management an accurate picture of worker hours required to increase bidding accuracy. We know that Time Entry has proven a winner for Rosendin Electric and we are delighted that Constructech agrees by granting us a Gold Vision Award.”

Before implementing the new Time Entry system, Excel timesheets were gathered from various regions, imported into a database for validation, and then moved to the Oracle platform for payroll processing. The challenge was that time was being charged to invalid task codes, in turn leading to substantial delays and remediation of paychecks. Regional managers were also spending more time gathering timesheets and checking them for accuracy.

With the new Time Entry system, Rosendin Electric project managers can now use their iPads or handheld devices to track and transmit time from the job site each day, leading to more accurate reporting without task code errors. Time Entry has allowed job superintendents to enter notes about reimbursements, job overrides, and other variables, thus, eliminating time-consuming communication between regional administrators and payroll staff. The new Time Entry also leverages RFID, QR/barcode badges to more accurately track workers time on the job.

This is the third consecutive year that Rosendin Electric has received a Vision Award. The company also received a Gold Constructech Vision Award in the category of Specialty Contractor: Electrical Work in 2015, 2014, 2012, and 2011.

Rosendin Electric, Inc., headquartered in San Jose, California, is an employee-owned electrical engineering, power, and communications provider. With revenues surpassing $1 Billion, Rosendin Electric is one of the largest electrical contractors in the United States. With over 6,000 employees and experience worldwide, Rosendin Electric has built upon a 97-year reputation for quality design and installations. For additional information, visit

Newly Released Dagah: The Great Fish is a Whale of a Tale!

Author Victoria McCarty Pens a Heartfelt Children’s Story of Faith and Trust.

Baltimore, MD (USA), August 26th, 2016 — We are familiar with the story of Jonah, a Bible story of epic proportions told of a man who is swallowed whole by a whale. But have we ever considered the story from the whale’s point of view? “Dagah: The Great Fish” is just that, the tale of a great whale who was called upon by God to participate in a mission far greater than he could have imagined.

“When my friend Inky asked the question – what did the whale think – it inspired me to create a colorful children’s book that would explore the relationship the fish had with God and how he came to swallow Jonah,” said author Victoria McCarty. “The question was asked jokingly but Inky really helped me delve into the story further and imagine what it would be like to be asked to do something far outside our comfort zone. “Dagah: The Great Fish” explores that experience. How do we respond when we are asked to do something we are sure we cannot.

In the story “Dagah: The Great Fish”, the main character is swimming along happily when he hears a voice that asks him to leave the comforts of home, food, and shelter and travel into the cold, dark waters of the unknown. Through a strong faith and trust in God, Dagah travels into a variety of interesting places and plays a major role in the story of Jonah, a simple man that God is also used for far greater good.

“Dagah: The Great Fish” is Victoria’s own experience in being asked to do something out of the norm. Prior to this story, Victoria has enjoyed writing but it was a very private endeavor. However, with “Dagah: The Great Fish” she felt called upon to create a story of faith and share it with the world.

“My hope is that “Dagah: The Great Fish” will resonate with young readers,” said McCarty. “Children have all experienced times when teachers, parents and other adults in their life have asked them to do something they felt was too difficult. Hopefully “Dagah: The Great Fish” will teach them that through faith and trust in God, who is always at their side offering support and comfort, they can accomplish great things.”

“Not only is this a wonderful children’s story,” said Lisa Umina, founder and publisher of Halo Publishing International, “but it is also a tale that will inspire parents to seek out more information about Jonah and other stories in the Bible that focus on God’s love and the importance of trusting in Him.”

Victoria’s story is accompanied by the beautiful art of her sister, Sarah Holtsberg, who is currently attending college. Her drawings bring the story of Dagah to life.

“Dagah: The Great Fish” is available through Halo Publishing as well as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

About Victoria McCarty:
Victoria McCarty is an art teacher, writer and active participant in children’s ministry in rural Carroll County, Maryland. She resides with her husband, dog, and cat focusing on church activities and creating studio artwork. Sharing God’s word in creative ways is one of Victoria’s passions. “Dagah: The Great Fish” is her first published work.
