The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Supports Second-Career Students

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

After a dozen years working in the wine industry, millennial Joy Makin is shifting her career focus to counseling individuals who are often forgotten by society. As a doctoral candidate in forensic psychology at the Los Angeles campus of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology, she says her goal is to help formerly incarcerated men and women get back on track with their lives. “I was tired of feeling like I was just making more profit for some corporation when I was working for wineries,” she said. “It’s important to me to be able to make a difference and I am hoping I will be able to do that as a forensic psychologist.” A native of a small farming town in California’s Central Valley, Makin said she had a front-row seat to the effects of alcohol and drug addiction. “I want to help people find ways to cope without harming themselves or others,” she said. “We all mess up and deserve a second chance in life.” Makin is just one example of The Chicago School’s second-career students who are poised to become the next generation of psychotherapists, counselors and psychologists with real world experience. She and her fellow graduates will enter a wide-open job market where the need is growing while many mental health professionals are reaching retirement age. A recent Chicago School graduate, Dr. Charles Robinson, was a classroom teacher for years in Illinois urban schools where he saw how his students struggled with mental health challenges. “I felt I could help to address core issues such as anxiety, depression and stress, which adversely affect learning,” he said. “I chose The Chicago School, and earned a doctorate in school psychology so I could more effectively support students in my community.” Another graduate, Dr. Bethany Patterson, had to juggle family, work and school, while seeking a doctoral degree at The Chicago School’s Washington D.C. campus. A military spouse and mother of three, she graduated last month and is already employed as clinical director at Helianthus Positive Behavior Supports, a provider of counseling services to children and families in Virginia and North Carolina. “I needed a school that was supportive and respectful of the military lifestyle because I had unique needs,” she said. “I found a place where the learning environment is optimized by active learners with diverse cultures,” she said. “Today I embody The Chicago School’s values of innovation, service, and community by creating a space for military spouses to encourage each other and further their education.” About The Chicago School of Professional Psychology: Integrating theory with hands-on experience, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology provides education rooted in a commitment to innovation, service, and community for thousands of diverse students across the United States and globally. Founded in 1979, the nonprofit, regionally accredited university now features campuses in iconic locations across the country (Chicago, Southern California, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Dallas) and online. To spark positive change in the world where it matters most, The Chicago School has continued to expand its educational offerings beyond the field of psychology to offer more than 30 degrees and certificates in the professional fields of health services, education, counseling, business, and more. Through its engaged professional model of education, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and an extensive network of domestic and international professional partnerships, The Chicago School’s students receive real-world training opportunities that reflect their future careers. The Chicago School is proud to be a part of TCS Education System, a nonprofit, integrated system of colleges and universities that works collaboratively to advance student success and community impact.

Minuteman Press Franchisees Dawn and Dean Seifert Celebrate 15 Years in Youngstown, Ohio

Minuteman Press International Inc

Dawn and Dean Seifert, owners of two Minuteman Press franchises in Youngstown and Warren, Ohio, are celebrating 15 years in business for their Youngstown location, which opened in May 2007. Minuteman Press in Youngstown is located at 3200 Belmont Avenue, Youngstown, OH 44505. In January 2020, Dawn and Dean purchased Minuteman Press in Warren located at 2460 Elm Road NE, Unit 500, Warren, OH 44483. Prior to franchising with Minuteman Press, Dean grew up in a family-owned print shop while Dawn worked in banking. They decided to own a business “to set our own destiny,” says Dawn. When asked about their success and longevity over the past 15 years, Dean says, “There are 4 keys to our business: Being able to have two of our four children work with us in the family business. Our customer service – we never tell a client that something can’t be done. We update our equipment when needed to make sure we operate efficiently. Following the Minuteman Press franchise system and marketing to our clients and community.” Dawn adds the following insights on how they have successfully marketed the business. She says, “There are 4 primary ways we have grown our business: Getting involved in the community and sponsoring various local events. Visiting our clients on a regular basis. Providing customers with our branded promotional items. Utilizing email marketing campaigns.” For Dawn and Dean, their high-demand products from clients include “custom printed brochures, branded promotional products, and full-scale direct mail marketing campaigns that include graphic design, printing, and mailing.” Dean says, “People still like to have something to hold onto and printing is the perfect way to put your brand in their hands and make a lasting impression.” Today, the local business community is looking bright. Dean shares, “We are excited to be part of a community along Liberty’s Belmont Avenue Business Corridor, which is the Mahoning Valley’s home base for many family-owned businesses. We are local businesses supporting each other and our customers. One of the biggest rewards of owning this business is building real relationships with our clients and having them become part of our family.” As part of the Minuteman Press franchise system for 15 years, Dawn and Dean share their three key benefits of franchising: “The corporate and local regional offices are always just a phone call away. The training was perfect for us and laid the foundation for how we operate our business. The Minuteman Press FLEX software helps us manage our business – it is easy to learn and operate/maintain.” As for what advice they would give to other businesses owners right now, Dean says, “Don’t try to do everything yourself. Also, treat your employees right and share your growth with them.” For more information about Minuteman Press in Youngstown, Ohio, visit https://minuteman.com/us/locations/oh/youngstown/ For more information about Minuteman Press in Warren, Ohio, visit https://minuteman.com/us/locations/oh/warren/ Learn more about #1 rated Minuteman Press franchise opportunities and to see Minuteman Press franchise reviews, visit https://minutemanpressfranchise.com Contact Details Minuteman Press International Chris Biscuiti +1 631-249-1370 cbiscuiti@mpihq.com Company Website https://minutemanpressfranchise.com

Sekur CEO Alain Ghiai Explains How LinkedIn Hacks Occur And How Sekur Private Data Helps Protect Against Hacks

Sekur Private Data Ltd

Alain Ghiai, CEO of Sekur Private Data Ltd. (OTCQX: SWISF) (CSE: SKUR) (FRA: GDT0), recently spoke with Jane King at New To The Street about a flurry of North Korean hacking schemes that have hit LinkedIn. North Korean hackers are using LinkedIn, an open-source network, to compromise personal devices and steal available information. Essentially, the hacker pretends to be a new business connection and requests to connect outside of LinkedIn on another open-source network like WhatsApp, an internationally used personal and business communication app. They send a link and once they are connected on WhatsApp, which includes access to your phone number, the hacker is able to install malware viruses and apps that effectively steal your data and compromise your device. What Makes Open Source So Vulnerable? Open-source software is software with source code that anyone can inspect, modify and enhance. In other words, the software design is publically accessible. Programmers who have access to a computer program’s source code can change or hack anything they have available. LinkedIn, Facebook and WhatsApp are all examples of open-source software. The majority of Big Tech is open source because at the turn of the century when Web 2.0 was expanding, open source allowed developers to share code and create usable solutions to expand technology. These days open source is considered a vulnerability. Proprietary or closed-source software is the opposite of open source. These networks and programs have a source code that only the person, team or organization who created it and maintains exclusive rights to can modify. Sekur is an example of a proprietary or closed source. Sekur is a US-listed cybersecurity and internet privacy company with roots in Switzerland that provides private and secure communications and data management. It uses military-grade encryption security and combines it with its proprietary encryption and Swiss data privacy laws. All user data is protected by the Swiss Federal Data Protection Act (FADP) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection Ordinance. The company’s use of some of the strongest privacy protection in the world for individuals and entities makes its Swiss-hosted services attractive. Sekur is a closed-loop platform with multiple layers of privacy and security. Its products like SekurMail and SekurMessenger offer users complete privacy because its code is unavailable for the manipulation that causes hacks. The Future For Sekur Ghiai shared in the interview that Sekur expects third-quarter financial results to be higher than the second quarter because of the increases in subscribers for its email, text and other products. The company lowered expenses over the past few months and says this will contribute to a strong fourth quarter. To watch the full interview, click here. Sekur Private Data Ltd. is a Cybersecurity and Internet privacy provider of Swiss hosted solutions for secure communications and secure data management. The Company distributes a suite of secure cloud-based storage, disaster recovery, document management, encrypted e-mails, and secure communication tools. Sekur Private Data Ltd. sells its products through its websites www.sekur.com and www.sekursuite.com, and approved distributors, and telecommunications companies worldwide.

Beer Lovers Holiday Guide

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/in1BavIM62o With the holiday season right around the corner, many of us are already in planning mode. Need some ideas for elevating your holiday entertaining and gifting? Recently, Sam Calagione, craft beer visionary and Dogfish Head founder, completed a satellite media tour to help fill your bar cart with innovative flavors that suit the season. He shared everything viewers and listeners need to enjoy an “off-centered” holiday – from elevating your cocktail game to beer and cheese pairing ideas, to unique gifts for the beer lovers on your list. As one of the first modern breweries to use exotic culinary ingredients and flavors, Dogfish Head has successfully brewed with just about everything – lobster, raisins, oat milk, black limes, scrapple, syrup, bone broth, and even snails. Here are some of Sam’s favorite beer products for this holiday season: Canned Cocktails: Launched in 2021, Dogfish Head used its 20+ years of distilling experience to create a line of delicious, spirits-based, ready to drink canned cocktails - scratch-made with two full-proof shots of Dogfish Head Distilling Co. spirits in each can and featuring real culinary ingredients. Bright and citrusy Blood Orange & Mango Vodka Crush and Lemon & Lime Gin Crush Light, refreshing and berry-delicious Strawberry & Honeyberry Vodka Lemonade and Blueberry Shrub Vodka Soda. The Bar Cart Variety Pack offers all the flavors in one place for your holiday hosting needs or if you can’t decide on just one. Dogfish Head x Cabot Creamery Collaboration: Many folks think of pairing cheese with wine, but beer and cheese pairings can be just as complex and delicious and is a great, new way to wow guests at holiday gatherings or parties. In August, Dogfish Head announced their collaboration with Cabot Creamery to brew The Perfect Pairing, a hazy pale ale scientifically engineered to be ‘the perfect pairing’ for sharp cheddar cheese, specifically Cabot’s Seriously Sharp Cheddar cheese. Clocking in at 5.5% ABV, The Perfect Pairing is unfiltered and hop-forward with juicy, citrusy notes of grapefruit and pineapple. It can be found in Dogfish Head’s Off-Centered Party Pack, which includes three other popular beers and a QR code that gives you the perfect cheese pairings for each beer - a complete holiday party spread in one package. Wake Up World Wide Stout: In September, Dogfish Head launched a new, breakfast-themed iteration of the brewery’s fan-favorite World Wide Stout, lovingly dubbed Wake Up World Wide Stout. Robust, sweet and warming, Wake Up World Wide Stout is a jet-black beer with deliciously balanced notes of espresso, sweet maple, roasted cacao and smoked honey for an “out-of-this-world” flavor profile. Clocking in at 15-17% ABV, it is brewed with regeneratively grown malts from Epiphany Malting, organic maple syrup from New Leaf Tree Syrups, oat milk from Elmhurst and organic coffee beans from Rise Up Coffee Roasters. As of mid-September, Wake Up World Wide Stout is available for purchase coast-to-coast in 4pk/12oz bottles, where legal. Crimson Cru: Just launched in October, Crimson Cru is the culmination of more than 225 years of collective brewing experience, thanks to a special and unique collaboration with Belgium’s Browerji Rodenbach. As part of Dogfish Head’s 2022 Off-Centered Art Series, this brew makes for a great holiday gift (no wrapping needed!) as it features bold packaging design and artwork from both breweries’ logos. Deep copper in color, Crimson Cru begins with Rodenbach’s world-renowned Grand Cru, a Flemish red-brown ale aged in oak casks, that made the overseas trek from Belgium to Delaware via tanker ship. After its cross-Atlantic journey, Rodenbach’s Grand Cru was artfully blended with an off-centered, 7.1% abv red ale infused with sumac and sweet orange peel that was then dry-hopped with Hallertau Blanc hops. The resulting beer is full-bodied and slightly warming with aromas of candied citrus, cherry, caramel and toffee, complemented by malty flavors of stewed fruits, plum, cherry, dried citrus and toffee. To find out more about these products and learn more about Dogfish Head, go to Dogfish.com About Sam Calagione: Sam Calagione has been focused on brewing beers with culinary ingredients since 1995, when Dogfish Head first opened as the smallest craft brewery in America. Today, Dogfish has grown into a 400+ person company and is one of the most recognized breweries in the country. Dogfish Head is based in Delaware with Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats, an off-centered brewpub and distillery, Chesapeake & Maine, a geographically enamored seafood restaurant, Dogfish Inn, a harbor-front beer-themed motel and Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, a production brewery and distillery featuring a Tasting Room & Kitchen. Dogfish currently sells beer across the US and Dogfish Head Distilling Co. spirits in the mid-Atlantic region. In July 2019, Dogfish Head proudly merged with the Boston Beer Company. Sam’s innovative style and collaborative spirit has earned him a reputation as one of the industry’s most adventurous entrepreneurs and brewers. Sam has authored four books and was named the James Beard Foundation’s Outstanding Wine, Spirits, or Beer Professional in 2017. Sam, his wife and co-founder Mariah and their family reside in coastal Delaware Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

How To Win At Holiday Hosting: Everything You Need to Know When Hosting Family & Friends

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/DmvrRaRjo4E November officially ushers in the holiday season, bringing with it the hustle and bustle we’ve been missing the past couple of years. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Mia Syn says there are a few easy ways to win at hosting while setting the scene for all the fun, food, and festivities. PLAN THE MENU AHEAD OF TIME: This holiday season is expected to be as “back to normal” as possible after more than two years of restrictions. For those taking on the role of hosting, Syn admits it could be a little nerve-racking, “That’s why I recommend planning the menu ahead of time, including main dishes, drinks, desserts, and the overall presentation.” The Registered Dietician Nutritionist suggests kicking things off with an overflowing charcuterie board filled with a mixture of colors, textures, and flavors, including a variety of cheeses, meats, and lots of veggies. Syn says to make sure to include almonds, adding, “Look for flavors that will surprise your guests, but also help add a seasonal taste.” This year, Blue Diamond Almonds released its first-ever limited-time offer holiday flavored almonds. “They’re perfect for a seasonal charcuterie board or sharing as a gift or stocking stuffer. Your family will love the Blue Diamond Snickerdoodle Flavored Almonds. They have the delicious taste of a seasonal cinnamon sugar cookie… so good! And one of my favorites is the Peppermint Cocoa Flavored Almonds with a delicious chocolatey flavor and hint of peppermint.” These products are available at grocery stores nationwide and Amazon.com. Consumers can also use Blue Diamond’s product locator tool to find a nearby store. https://www.bluediamond.com/naughty-and-nice Facebook: www.facebook.com/BlueDiamondAlmonds/ Instagram: www.instagram.com/BlueDiamond Twitter: www.twitter.com/BlueDiamond DESSERTS WITH ADDED BENEFITS: A menu would not be complete without dessert. It may be a surprise, but Syn is a self-proclaimed “desserts girl,” saying, “I’m always about the desserts and this year I have a couple originals that are on the healthy side and taste fantastic!” She recommends a classic with a twist, blondies. “Believe it or not, my version is made with beans,” says Syn. The registered dietician nutritionist admits it may seem odd at first, but, “When cooked and rinsed well, beans can add moisture and fudginess to baked goods like brownies and blondies while cutting back on the amount of fat and flour needed. Not only that, but beans add nutrients such as plant protein, B vitamins, and fiber, making this a dessert with benefits.” Another option are Syn’s banana-sweetened chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. They’re made with a ripe banana mash, creamy peanut butter, quick oats, pure vanilla and dark chocolate chips. “There is also another surprise, these treats are made without flour, eggs, or added sugar,” says Syn. STOP DOING DISHES: Syn admits the menu building and preparation could be fun, but the cleanup is often taxing and takes up a lot of time. That’s why she suggests eliminating the time suckers, which includes washing dishes and loading the dishwasher. “We all know it takes time away from what’s really important. This time of year is so busy and should be spent on special traditions, making new memories, and being with the ones you love.” The Chinet® brand is focused on making cleanup easier so families can spend more time together. She says these products are made for exactly what’s on your menu, like a traditional honey-glazed turkey, or an old-fashioned ham with brown sugar and mustard glaze. For a more upscale affair, Syn suggests using the Chinet Crystal® products, which add a fancy touch to meals, perfect for a beef tenderloin, seared duck, or lamb with garlic and rosemary,” adding, “The crystal cups are great for that pre-dinner toast!” Most importantly, when partygoers are done eating dinner or dessert, Syn says, “Just toss the dishes and have all that extra time for family fun.” For more information, visit mychinet.com.
