About Ruccello Olive Oil
RoseAnne Fischer of Monterey has such a passion for Extra Virgin Olive Oil that she founded her own company in 2017, Ruccello Olive Oil, to offer consumers the highest quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil from the best producers from around the world.
RoseAnne is also committed to educating the consumer on the many health benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and how to be a discerning consumer through olive oil tastings, olive oil and food pairing events and house parties showcasing the liquid gold.
She will have 10 different kinds of Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Italy, California, Spain, Greece and Turkey available on her website, ruccellooliveoil.com, as well as soaps and lotions made from olive oil. She also hopes to import European antiques in partnership with a company in Carmel Valley.
Her business took root in 2015 when she and her husband bought a small house in Tuscany nestled in the Chianti hills, with vineyards and olive groves everywhere you could see.
The idea of running her own olive oil business inspired her to take an Olive Oil Sommelier class to learn everything she could about olive oil.
And among the things she learned was the fact that many olive oils for sale in the U.S. are mislabeled and adulterated and that customers were being duped into buying Extra Virgin Olive Oil that was either virgin olive oil or lampante oil, which is not fit for human consumption.
So the Monterey, California native decided she wanted to educate American consumers and offer them the best Extra Virgin Olive Oil that the world has to offer.
“Consumers know that olive oil is good for you, but there are a lot of myths about it out there,” she says. “I want to share what I’ve learned and I want to provide a product that people can trust and feel safe in the knowledge that the products are of the highest quality.”

Monterey, CA, September 27, 2018 — Autumn is just around the corner, so Real Estate Agent Ashley Wayland of Wayland Properties is offering tips and tricks to get your home ready for the season.
Suggested Home Fall Maintenance:
It’s time to clean out those gutters to get ready for the weather (hopefully). Why is this important? Clogged gutters create “sludge,” which is extremely difficult to remove. Water will then overflow from the gutters onto your home, causing wood rot. Wood rot attracts termites, compounding your problems.
•It’s time to clean out your chimney! There are some great companies across the Monterey Peninsula that can take care of this for you, starting at, $149.
•Test your carbon monoxide detectors. With cold weather approaching and heaters being used more often, protect your family from the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. It will only take a few minutes of your time to test your carbon monoxide detectors.
•If you live an area that is prone to freezing temperatures, right now is the time to wrap/insulate any of your exterior pipes so they don’t freeze and break. Even in the Salinas Valley, there is an occasional freeze.
•Do you have any “sick” trees or large branches that are close to or hanging over your home? With winter storms around the corner, it’s important to be sure that nothing unhealthy is within reach of your improvements. Call Lopez & Sons for an estimate today at 831-915-7619.
But wait, there’s more! Just kidding! Here are a few additional tips, but this time for your vehicle:
•If you’re heading up to snow country, make sure you have plenty of anti-freezing windshield wiper fluid in your vehicle. Have you ever been stuck on Highway 80 on the Summit behind large trucks before? You will thank me later!
•Also, it never hurts to pre-purchase chains and carry cash to have them installed if necessary. You never know when you will be caught in the snow!
I know that sometimes it can feel like your home is a never-ending money pit, but it is one of the largest investments you will ever make. Take heart, you are incredibly blessed to own a home! More than 64% of American’s own their own home. It’s one of the largest investments you will ever make, so it’s incredibly important to protect your investment and take great care of it!

There’s more to life than profit. And integrity can’t be bought. That’s the philosophy pushing Guberman-PMC to ISO certification and quality success, while maintaining a pro-American, pro-veteran stance despite the shady affairs of other businesses choosing to work with anti-American elements.
New York, NY, USA, September 27th, 2018 — September 11th, 2001 is a day that is etched into the hearts and souls of all true Americans. It has also stood as a huge motivation for ethical businesses to stay far away from those companies and organizations who choose to work with and be certified by those who hate both America and Israel. Jewish-American business leader Daryl Guberman, founder and CEO of Guberman-PMC, has been on a crusade to educate how many of the top ISO-certifying orgs have ties to places like China, Iran, Pakistan, and other countries who make no secret how they feel about the American way of life. One of the ways Guberman has tried to educate in this area is through a series of informative YouTube videos. In his latest, Guberman teams up with a 9/11 FDNY hero to slam what many feel are the unethical business practices of Victory Welding and their owner George Foote who chose to work with the Chinese national led IAF watching over ABS Quality Evaluations, rather than a pro-American ISO-certification quality organization.
“Who can blame FDNY or NYPD heroes for taking these things very seriously,” asked Guberman. “We certainly do. Veterans and people in civilian service like firemen and policemen are the backbones of our country and things like what Victory Welding chooses to do, when other options are available, are distasteful to the extreme.”
Guberman-PMC has over three decades of experience in ensuring quality and offer ISO certifications that cover a very long list of areas that can be seen on the company website. They also do their part to help pro-American causes, with Guberman even considering running for office, and hiring veterans whenever and wherever possible.
NEW YORK, NY, USA, 2018-Sep-26 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Most of the systems we are already used to, we do not know how they work, for we are always thinking we know enough that they work and we trust them. But honestly, do you think you know enough about online banking? Here you will find some facts that might be useful for you to know!
Here you will find useful information you will better have on mind, and also excellent reasons for using online banking services and some advices for being always safe and security.
Sometimes if your internet connection is not that good, it might be hard for you to access to your bank through your conventional online banking portal, so these online banking apps and services might help you to access in an easier, lighter and safer way anytime you need!
Online Banking – When and how did it start working?
Did you know it? The first online banking systems that gave origin of the ones you use today EVERYDAY were introduced in the early 1980s in New York when four of the national banks started offering the revolutionary home banking services, allowing the clients and small businesses to have a quick online banking check.
On the same way, the online banking started also on the United Kingdom around those years when the Scotland Bank and the Nottingham Building Society provided the Homelink service for giving their users the opportunity of viewing bank moves on a computer.
But it was only until 1994 that the banks around the entire globe started using the internet for posting their advertises, and then in 1995 they started offering to the clients the possibility of managing their money online through a home computer, and this came to be the online banking of nowadays.
The greatest benefits of using the Online Banking
As everyone knows the major benefits of using online banking are mainly two: security and comfort. With the online banking services you can make all your money-related operations without needing cash or personally going to the bank.
Paying your services with no delay
These services might help you regardless of your bank, they will help you to manage all your bank moves for having an easy, confortable, secure and practical administration of your money, you can make routine pays like paying electricity, water and gas services without losing any time of your day.
Your pays to third ones can also be made much easier with these online banking services, for they will offer you an easy platform where you can quickly see and control your bank accounts.
Manage all your accounts and save your time and money
These services might also help you if you manage more than one bank account, so you can control your money in any of them more easily and in a more ordered way. You do not need to waste any passage fees anymore if you do not live close to any bank, you can make all your processes from your home computer or even with your Smartphone.
It is really easy to look by yourself if you prefer right now, on Google Play Store for these apps for the one you prefer the most, we just advice you to read enough about each app of services and be aware of the reviews to know if it is safe and if it has the functions you need.
Most of these online banking services also have apps you can download for always having a control of your money in your pocket. You can pay the balance of your telephones, your internet service and the rent of your home (if you have to) through online banking.
Risks and security advices while using online banking
If you are already an online banking user or you are considering being one, here are some advices to keep security, for there is no infallible system and you can help these to be safer and securer. What you can do is always good for making sure your security and your money’s.
Many online banking services keep you safe with logging you out every time you finish your operations, if you close the app or delay too long in doing something in it, it might close your account for your security, so you better remember always your user name and password.
It is not recommendable to have your password written in a paper or in any digital way inside your phone, always protect your device with a locking pattern, or even better, a password or a PIN code, these last two methods are more efficient and safer than the pattern that could stand marked on the screen of your smartphone.
Install a VPN app for your security
Sometimes when you connect to the public WiFi and start making your bank moves from your smartphone or laptop, there are hackers who are connected to the same network that you are, and they can hack your information even from your online banking accounts, everything you send could be intercepted by them.
The makers of the online banking services and apps nothing can do against that, but you can! There are some programs or apps that are known as VPN. What are the VPN programs and apps? The letters are for Virtual Protected Network, and it makes that all your information is encrypted and it makes it harder to be hacked and intercepted.
If you protect your phone and your laptop with VPN programs, the hackers will have it MUCH harder to intercept your data and force your online banking accounts.
Follow carefully all of these advises and your online banking account, passwords, and information will never be hacked! You can then research by yourself and keep reading for having enough knowledge about the system of online anti-hacking security you are willing to install and make use of.
At this moment me do not recommend you one specific VPN app or program, we just let you know about its existence and we strongly advise you to start researching about them, so you can find exactly the one you need for your phone, or your laptop.
Do not waste any time or disk space on installing a program that is too heavy and has too many features that you do not actually need, just look for the program you do need.
It is also recommendable that you read carefully every contract of terms and conditions and politic privacy of the apps you install and the programs you use in your laptop for applying the online banking services.
Benefits of online banking
If you have no fear to innovate and start tasting the great advantages of adapting to the new technologies, then, you will make good to start trying new systems of online banking like apps and webpages that are quick and easy to access, you will see in your own experience the next benefits:
First of all, you will reduce the time spent in executing financial operations. Only thing you need to do is to be connected to the internet from your home, your office or any mobile web (remember to use VPM systems to protect data), and then you will have all your money in your hand, easily manageable.
Have your bank at the reach of your hand
Make your bank moves from everywhere you are, you can do it from your laptop or your smartphone, only thing you need to do is to have internet access and then you can review your account state, transfer money and pay fees. Usually, these mobile online banking services are free and the only charge you could get is with your mobile company and the kind of plan you have contracted.
You can make more than one banking operation: moves, credit card pays, pay of services, recharge your air time and according to specialists, 20 per cent of people access to online banking through internet through these kind of mobile devices.
Keep the control of everything easily
You can have control of your money and account pays, and then stop losing any more time visiting the bank, with online banking aside of avoiding the printed account states, you can pay your accounts and maintain all your pay registries in only one place and very easy to find. If you prefer, you can also program automatic pays using your credit or debit card, like the pays of your services of water, electricity and telephone.
Stay safe with your money
Security with your operations is supported by your username and your personal unique password (and this is one you can change periodically), and also you have the token, that is a numeric code that changes every 60 seconds, and that you have to introduce to connect to the online banking.
Many online banking methods also work with security images, which are unique and are impossible to be identified or distinguished by a computer, so it cannot be violated with robotic systems.
Bertie Bialek Elliott has served in many capacities with the Monterey Symphony and has been attending and supporting the organization for over 35 years.
Monterey, CA, September 25, 2018 – Bertie Bialek Elliott has served in many capacities with the Monterey Symphony and has been attending and supporting the organization for over 35 years. Before the opening of the 73rd season of the Symphony, Bertie made the decision to give $2.4M to the Symphony’s endowment fund, ensuring a vibrant and healthy financial future for the organization. These endowment funds will be used to support the artistic and administrative vision of the organization. In honor of Bertie’s tremendous generosity, the Symphony has named these funds the BERTIE BIALEK ELLIOTT ENDOWMENT.
This transformational gift, along with a bequest received earlier this year from the MARGARET ANDERSON RADUNICH TRUST, has bolstered the institution financially. “It’s difficult to put into words what this gift means to the Symphony,” said Executive Director Nicola Samra. “Bertie’s generosity has reframed the conversation about the Symphony’s longevity. This gift is so unbelievably thoughtful and generous, I am just so ecstatic about it.”
Lee Rosen, Board President, echoed the sentiment, “Bertie and I have known each other for over 30 years and her devotion to the performing arts in our community during that time has been unwavering. We are thrilled that her confidence in the future of the Monterey Symphony led to this gift which will enable the Symphony to maintain its superb orchestral concerts and nurture its youth concerts for years to come.”
Bertie was inspired to give the gift after multiple conversations with the leadership of the Symphony. “I am so delighted to be able to give this gift at this time,” she said. “It’s wonderful to be able to strengthen an organization that I have been a part of for so long.”
The Monterey Symphony, founded in 1947, serves the diverse communities of the Monterey Peninsula through a subscription series at Sunset Center in Carmel and a wide reaching youth education program, Music for the Schools. During the 2018-19 season the Symphony will return to Salinas with two youth concerts reaching nearly 3,000 students. Additionally, the Symphony will present six youth concerts at Sunset Center, reaching 4,500 students. Every 3rd grader in the Monterey Peninsula Unified School district participates in the Symphony’s program, as well as every 5th grader in the Salinas Union School District. The Symphony recently received an award for Outstanding Non-Profit from the Non-Profit Alliance of Monterey County.
The Monterey Symphony opens its 73rd season, Sound Waves, on October 20th, 2018 with the world premiere of a commissioned work by 22-year old composer, Alex Berko. The work was commissioned in partnership with the Big Sur Land Trust and Berko spent a week in residence at the Glen Deven Ranch in Big Sur.

Washington, D. C., 2018-Sep-24 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — With the introduction of her printemps/été 2019, Ellen London strives through her wearable art collection to emerge from the daily complex incongruities we experience and to rise from the ground with beauty and grace as does a flower – “de la sol une fleur doit grandir”.

It’s no secret that there are many businesses upset about their relationship with their ISO accreditation organization. Expert in the field Daryl Guberman of G-PMC LLC explains why this has likely occurred, especially for those businesses accredited by ANAB and its affiliates.
New York, NY, USA, September 21, 2018 — When it comes to business, knowledge is certainly power. For companies who are disgruntled by the performance of their ISO registrar, a common occurrence in the last few years, lack of knowledge may be playing into the issues they are experiencing with the quality service their registrar is delivering. Founder of G-PMC LLC and quality consulting expert Daryl Guberman is tackling this issue head-on. Having identified very serious ethical, and possibly even legal concerns, with leading accreditation organization ANAB, Guberman recently released a new YouTube video “Have You Been Misled By An ISO Registrar About Accreditation?” intended to help wake up as many business owners as possible.
“There are two main factors to this grave problem,” remarked Guberman. “The first is many of the ISO registrars affiliated with ANAB are just doing poor jobs and this is reflected in black and white examples and statistics. The other is that ANAB is 100% an organization with deep ties to anti-Americanism abroad, to the point of even organizing events in ways to get around the American travel bans, intended to stop business with terrorist-sponsoring and human-rights abusing nations. As a Jewish-American businessman aware of these issues I feel a great responsibility to stand up for what’s right.”
According to Guberman, ANAB makes no secret that it has affiliations in China, North Korea, Pakistan, Libya, Iran, and many other countries who have either directly or indirectly called for the destruction of the United States and Israel. Some of these countries have also been shown to have conducted hacking operations and other forms of cyber-espionage against the American government and American businesses. Guberman points to these warning signs and more when he asks the question of business owners if they have been misled by their ISO registrar, since these kind of connections are certainly not useful as selling points to American businesses many of which have veterans either as workers or owners.
Guberman goes on to point out a sound alternative in using the American-based, owned, and operated American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) for accreditation purposes, a decision with no poor ethical overtones. Both ABAC and G-PMC are known for supporting veteran’s causes large and small, along with having a patriotic and pro-Israel position, as opposed to their main competitors.
