New Children’s Picture Book with Stunning Artwork Explores the World of a Hopi Indian Girl

Newly released picture book about a Hopi Indian girl takes readers through many metaphorical doors to explore the different aspects that make each our lives: family, friendship, culture, education, creativity, and nature.

Washington, DC (USA), November 19th, 2015 — Newly released picture book about a Hopi (pronounced: hope-ee) Indian girl takes readers through many metaphorical doors to explore the different aspects that make each our lives: family, friendship, culture, education, creativity, and nature.

TALASI… A Story of Tenderness and Love exposes children to new experiences as Talasi explores her native world and later the modern culture of the white man while holding to Native American beliefs and traditions. This charming and lovingly illustrated picture book teaches young readers how love and friendships get us over the rough spots in life and to never stop exploring the world around them.

Many American children are growing up in a multicultural world and are curious to understand all the cultures surrounding them. “Traveling through Arizona, I was terrible curious myself about what life on an Indian reservation was like when I visited a Hopi tribe,” said author Ellen S. Cromwell. “I wanted to understand the culture of these amazing people and visited with a kikmongwi, primarily a religious leader for the tribe. This experience truly touched me.”

TALASI… A Story of Tenderness and Love is about a young Hopi Indian girl named Talasi. Her name comes from corn tassel flowers that surround her pueblo home in Arizona. Tassels are tall, slender flowers clustered at the very top of corn. Corn, in its many forms, provides basic nourishment for Hopi People.

Wonderfully written, this children’s book clearly reflects the author’s fascination with the Hopi people and their history. Hopi means “peaceful person” or “civilized person” in the Hopi language and Ellen S. Cromwell evokes a compelling portrait of the Hopi Indians and how they truly are a peaceful people. “The richness of Talasi’s Indian culture will expand the horizons of any child who reads this book,” said illustrator Desiree Sterbini. “I researched to make sure every illustration was authentic to the Hopi culture. I wanted the themes of love, family, and friendship to be something each child could relate to. The images are personal as they are from actual pictures of my mother-in-law and daughter.”

With the author and illustrator using personal, real life experiences and pictures to draw from, the book exemplifies what it means to value all cultures that make up the world we live in and that no matter what children can solve problems with love and courage. “A lot of the imagery is from personal experiences. I grew up as an immigrant in the Bronx and remember the neighborhood coming together to build this treehouse for all the kids to play in. It was amazing and we felt like we were on top of the world as kids up there,” said author Ellen S. Cromwell. “Those childhood experiences and what I learned from the Hopi tribe and its culture helped me create Talasi and her world.”

Not only does this picture book have multicultural overtones, but parents and educators will find the author used sight words and repetition to make this the perfect book for classrooms and bookshelves.

“Reading a book together as a family or in the classroom is one simple yet very special tradition,” said Halo Publisher Lisa M. Umina. “Readers of all ages will find this picture book is heartwarming and helps keep you and your children connected through the upcoming holiday season.”

You can purchase “TALASI… A Story of Tenderness and Love” through Halo Publishing’s website (http://halopublishing.com), Amazon, and B&N.

Mike File Launches Crowdfunding Project to Fund Web & App Development Classes for Young Adults with Disabilities

Crowdfunding to create a tech training center to teach young adults with disabilities how to create apps & websites at no cost to them.

Dickinson, Texas, USA (March 2, 2015) — As a retired special education high school teacher and current mobile application and website developer, Mike File identified a unique opportunity to connect adults with disabilities to a life-changing opportunity by which they can achieve higher goals and succeed in life.

To this end, Mr. File wants to create a technology incubator to help young adults with disabilities learn to develop mobile applications and websites without the financial worry of paying for the classes they would be taking. His target students are those who were very high functioning in high school, but due to lack of ability to access the curriculum, or their social skills, their school was not able to give them a proper preparation for their post-secondary education, they were not able to get into college to continue their education.

Drawing on his vast sets of skills in education and mobile app development, he hopes to leverage all of his professional experience to expand the technology training center he launched after retiring from the school system to provide classes for special young people valuable technology skills for a productive and successful career either as freelancers or employees.

Crowdfunding is sought to allow Mr. File to purchase the computers and teaching materials and cover related costs enabling the students to hit the ground running -without a penny from any student’s pocket. After completion of the program each student will given their own laptop loaded with training and development software, as well as Developer Accounts so they can start creating and selling content. These classes are scheduled to begin in May.

This crowdfunding campaign ends in April.The Teaching Adults with Disabilities App Development Page can be found at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/teaching-adults-with-disabilities-app-development–2/x/9376669.

About Mike File
After spending 16 years as a special ed teacher on a high school campus, his first experience with an iPad in 2010 led him on a journey of discovery to professional reinvention as a mobile app developer running his own company. At present he has 20 apps in the App Store for iPhones and iPads, 6 apps in Google Play for Android Devices, and 5 Apps in the Windows Store for Windows 8 devices. Retiring from teaching at the end of school year in 2014, he found himself launching The Tech Lounge, a technology training center, teaching classes on how to use mobile devices. Although he left teaching he didn’t leave his students behind; staying in touch with them he learned of all the difficulties they face with their careers. This discovery inspired him to pursue his latest dream; being able to provide these former students the skills, and equipment to have careers as web application developers.

Bryant & Stratton College Online Hosts Webinar: What Type of Resume is Best?

January 10 webinar will teach job seekers about the different types of resume formats, how to know when to use them and practical resume tips

Buffalo, NY, December 20, 2013 – The average recruiter spends about six seconds looking at a single resume, according to a study by The Ladders. That means job seekers have six seconds to highlight their skills and expertise, making the format of a resume as important as the content. For that reason, Bryant & Stratton College Online announced today a new session in its career information webinar series titled “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” The webinar will be held on Friday, January 10 from noon to 1 p.m. EST.

During the “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” webinar, attendees will learn practical tips and advice to improve their resume. Some of the topics covered in the webinar will include:

* The difference between chronological, functional, skills based and combination resumes

* When to use each type of resume

* How to take a resume from responsibility-focused to success-focused

* Dos and Don’ts of resume writing

The webinar will be led by Cindy Carpenter and Albanitza Mayoliz who handle recruiting at Verizon for the Call Center and Retail Sales Channel, respectively. Ms. Carpenter and Ms. Mayoliz are responsible for reviewing applications and qualifications, identifying quality candidates, coordinating interviews, extending offers and on boarding new hires. Both women are experienced recruiters with extensive knowledge in recruiting practices, talent acquisition, on boarding, hiring, career fairs, resume writing and career advancement and social media.

“There is an art to putting together a resume that most job seekers underestimate. A typical recruiter may have to sort through hundreds, or even thousands, of resumes to fill a position. A strong resume needs to communicate quickly and concisely why a job seeker deserves to be considered for a position. To do that sometimes requires deviating from the standard chronological format,” said Ms. Carpenter.

The “What Type of Resume is Best for You?” career information webinar is offered for free by Bryant & Stratton College Online and is open to current students, prospective students and others seeking information about how to write a resume. Those interested in attending are invited to register at http://online.bryantstratton.edu/webinar/.

“Career preparation is an integral part of what we provide students at Bryant & Stratton College Online. The career information webinar series has been a successful way to educate students not only on how to do a job, but also on how to get a job. We are grateful that Ms. Carpenter and Ms. Mayoliz have offered to share their expertise with job seekers,” said Scott Traylor, Campus Director for Online Education at Bryant & Stratton College.

Varsity Tutors Highlights Relationship Between Education and Income Level in New Infographic

Data Serves as a Resource for Parents and Students in Assessing the Value of College Degree

St. Louis, MO, June 04, 2013 – To help parents and students better understand the value of higher education, Varsity Tutors, a premier one-on-one private tutoring and test prep provider, today released an infographic that delves into the perceived importance and actual effects of higher education on income and career prospects. Entitled “Education vs. Income Level,” the infographic compares educational attainment to U.S. employment and salary statistics.

In 2009, 73 percent of Americans said they agreed with the statement, “In order to get ahead these days, it’s necessary to get a college degree,” compared to just 49 percent in 1978. This increasingly common perception aligns with employment and salary statistics for college-educated adults.

“Data has shown that highly educated individuals are more likely to earn higher wages throughout their lives,” said Varsity Tutors founder and CEO Chuck Cohn. “It’s important for parents and students to understand the value of a college degree when making decisions about their education and future career plans.”

The infographic features survey data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics and other sources, including these key facts:

* The unemployment rate for college graduates is well below the national average, and has been consistently lower than the rates of unemployment for individuals without a Bachelor’s degree over the past 10 years.

* In 2013, the unemployment rate for people with a Bachelor’s degree or greater was 3.7 percent, compared to 7 percent for those with some college experience or an Associate’s degree, 8.1 percent for those with a high school diploma, and 12 percent for those with less than a high school diploma.

* Individuals with a Bachelor’s degree are expected to earn $2.422 million over the course of their lives, compared to just $1.371 million for those with only a high school diploma.

The infographic also highlights differences in income among individuals with master’s and doctoral degrees, and compares wages and annual earnings across several career fields from Engineering to Social Sciences. To learn more about the impact of higher education on income, view the full infographic at http://www.varsitytutors.com/blog/education+vs+income+level+in+the+usa+infographic.
