I want to start a painting business? - 29 Jan 2016 13:02

Tags:

[[html]]I've spent years in the trades. If you want to learn the business, it would be best if you find a local painter and apprentice for him. A woman I know called me all the time, because she was charging $15 an hour and didn't even know what a Five-in-one is…it's a basic tool every painter I know carries in their pocket, along with a rag. <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/6W6I-zCu34g&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/6W6I-zCu34g&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Here is a link where you can put your zip code in to see what the average cost is. Most painters have insurance, equipment, vans and storage that these prices include. <br><br><img style="float:left;margin:10px;border:none;" src="http://assets.hardwarezone.com/img/2015/07/Rhino_Shield__4_.jpg" width="323" /><br><br>It's great that you know how to draw. But remember that you are trying to build a reputation. I haven't used a resume in over a decade, as I get hired by people who see my work. So, even if it means you get stuck <a href="http://www.switchboard.com/business/details?uid=AkZ8yptZ">interior painter</a> doing the "grunt" work, work for an experienced painter. You will be learning all sorts of things, so you don't have to call people like me when a job gets overwhelming! <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/VbQak1JPjXY&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/VbQak1JPjXY&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Lots of luck in your journey and please understand that some fathers will never see the wonderful person that is their child. Some, sadly, will always underestimate you. So, don't worry about him. Do what makes you proud of yourself and hopefully he will rise to meet you. <br><br>I'm including a photo from a set for a movie I worked on. You may want to look into options beyond house painting. Theater, opera, television and cruise ships use painted scenery, as do major motion movies, although it is a dying art due to CGI. Just wanted you to know there are options beyond the obvious for us painters!<br><br><img src="http://static.neuerdings.com/1363195311/rhino-shield-05.jpg" width="391" /><br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Find a New Job after being Fired for Cause - 20 Jan 2016 15:28

Tags:

[[html]]<img alt="Let Go" data-caption="Let Go" data-credit="Microsoft Clip Art" data-credit-link="" src="https://static.suite.io/article_images/orig/0d178bb1-2aa1-4566-8472-45583649b090.jpg" title="Let Go"/>Being fired is not being laid off, though many experts will lump these two reasons for termination into the same group. Truth of the matter is that employees who are laid off have not done anything wrong. The poor economy, changes in the industry, or other financial considerations often cause employers to cut back staffing levels. The unfortunate result is that some jobs will be eliminated; some employees will be laid off.<br><br>Being fired, on the other hand, is something completely different. <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/d/embed?mid=zT1Oh1zZuf1E.kY-l10xt4BzM" width="640" height="480"></iframe>It causes more of an emotional impact because it says that the person being fired has actually done something wrong. It may just mean that the employee and her supervisor have conflicting personalities and cant get along, but it feels a lot more personal and the results can be much more devastating.<br><br><img src="http://candytech.in/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Steve-Jobs-Quotes-10.jpg" width="272" /><br><br>The Immediate Aftermath of Being Fired<br><br>Whether an employee is laid off or fired, there likely will be an emotional reaction. It might be anger, fear, sadness or all of these. Before doing anything else, it is important for fired employees to deal with the emotion, including anger with themselves.<br><br>Yes, it is very likely that employees who are fired for misconduct things like insubordination, theft, drugs will realize their mistake and find it difficult to move forward. Not just from a job hunt standpoint, but from an emotional one. However, it is important for employees to take ownership of their actions, commit not to do it again and move on.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/00kU8vRrigk&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/00kU8vRrigk&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>In the meantime, whether it seems reasonable or not, apply for unemployment benefits. Why? Because if there is any question about why an employee was fired a difference of opinion, unclear or undocumented facts or if the employer decides not to fight the application for benefits, the employee may still be able to collect.<br><br>Finding Work After Being Fired<br><br>It will not be easy. However, it is not insurmountable.<br><br><img src="http://work.canadiancollege.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/JOBS.jpg" width="286" /><br><br>First and foremost, dont lie about being fired. Dont embellish, but be honest. Its important to <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Morgan-Stephens/1710164199212575">job application</a> provide a simple explanation I was terminated and then move on. This is especially important when filling out an employment application because lying on it can be grounds for dismissal at any time. When it comes to the face-to-face interview, only offer additional information if it is requested. And still, keep it simple. "I made an error in judgment and it cost me my job. I realize my mistake and I'm ready to <a href="http://www.mapquest.com/places/morgan-stephens-rockville-md-303204885">job site</a> move on."<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/urk5QBDIWak&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/urk5QBDIWak&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Next, practice interviewing. This is something that most experts recommend to all candidates regardless of their reason for leaving their last job. It just makes good sense for job seekers to get comfortable with the interview process. And for someone who was fired, it is even more important. This is when he can work on exactly how to explain why he was fired, what he learned from his actions and how he plans on moving forward.<br><br><img src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-0uzbqe2qmzm/tck61vv5wqi/aaaaaaaaaa8/gx3m-k0eqdw/s1600/jobs.jpg" width="339" /><br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/sXqtgLJ70D4&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/sXqtgLJ70D4&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>The last step for job seekers is to find a new job. For job seekers who were fired for misconduct, it will be important to prove themselves all over again. Here are five places that may give them that new start::<br><br>Begin with temporary work. Job seekers should check out the temporary service firms in their area. Getting a <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Morgan-Stephens/1710164199212575">job listings</a> temporary job is a good way to get a foot in the door at a local employer.Consider the government agency that may have said "no" to unemployment. One of the many services provided by state employment offices is job placement assistance. Fired employees are likely to find a more welcoming environment and counselors that can provide special one-on-one assistance. And dont forget to visit state or federal online job sites, too.Check out community-based organizations (such as Goodwill Industries, Salvation Army, Vietnam Veterans of America) and local churches that offer job assistance programs. Job seekers may even want to volunteer their time at one of these organizations to demonstrate their commitment.Consider small, local employers. Where job seekers can tend to get lost in the maze and red tape of large organizations, the independently owned and operated business person often has a more open mind and willingness to forgive.Become a consultant. The only way to avoid being asked the inevitable question, Why were you fired? is to become a consultant. Job seekers who offer a marketable skill may be able to find a whole new career.Yes, it is painful. Yes, it is difficult. However, the fired job seeker can turn it around. Its about never giving up and going out and finding work after being fired.<br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0

Breath tests can be used again in prosecuting DUI cases - 16 Jan 2016 12:59

[[html]]A three-judge District Court panel issued a ruling late yesterday saying that it is okay for King County prosecutors to admit Driving Under the Influence (DUI) breath test results in DUI cases.<br><br>The King County District Court panel announced that they are lifting their suppression of DUI breath tests, which was based on the problems the panel found in the Washington State Patrol Toxicology Division (WPLD) lab in 2008, according to a press release from the King County Prosecutors Office. <br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/Buhk7UrmpM0&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/Buhk7UrmpM0&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>In their 2008 ruling available on The Seattle Times web site, District Court Judges Darrell Phillipson, Mark Chow and David Steiner said the WPLD crime lab work had, "ethical lapses, systematic inaccuracy, negligence, and violations of scientific principles" that compromised the breath-testing results.<br><br>An audit of the lab additionally found at least 150 errors at the lab.<br><br><img src="http://www.calljr.com/sites/default/files/Indianapolis%20Indiana%20DUI%20Lawyer.jpg" width="259" /><br><br>In the mean time, prosecutors used other evidence in these cases, including field sobriety tests.<br><br>Since then, the panel has seen a much different picture under the Washington State Toxicology Laboratory's new Toxicologist, and reversed their decision in State v. Ahmach.<br><br><img src="http://massachusettsdrunkdrivingpersonalinjurylawyer.com/images/drunkdriving.jpg" width="266" /><br><br>The lab sought international accreditation for its breath test program.<br><br>At the time accreditation was granted, it was only the fourth lab in the world to have met that standard.<br><br>[The WTLD] now appears geared toward rigorous science and leadership in the area of forensic toxicology [and] has successfully corrected all the issues raised in Ahmach, the panel wrote, according to the press release from the King County Prosecutors Office.<br><br><object width="400" height="241"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/4h-EUI2eGVg&hl=en_US&fs=1&"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/4h-EUI2eGVg&hl=en_US&fs=1&" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="400" height="241"></embed></object><br><br>Prosecutors intend to start introducing the breath tests again at trial.<br><br>"We are pleased that the Court has recognized the Crime Lab's achievements and that confidence has been restored in the Lab's results," said King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg in the news release.<br><br>In a second decision, the three-judge panel appears to have added an entirely new legal requirement in order for prosecutors to use the breath test results at trial. <br><br>The Court ruled that the Toxicology Lab must make mathematical calculations on the principle of uncertainty regarding breath alcohol measurements. <br><br>The impact on the Lab is significant, in that over 5,000 tests are conducted each year in King County District Court and approximately 30,000 are conducted statewide, according to the King County Prosecutors Office. <br><br>Prosecutors argue that they are not required by state law, and this should be up to a jury to decide. Prosecutor Satterberg believes the second decision by the court produces a mixed result.<br><br>"We do not believe the Lab is required under state law to conduct the calculations in the manner the Court has required, Satterberg said in the news release. We are reviewing our options for appeal. In the meantime, we will seek to introduce the breath tickets as our best evidence in proving DUI cases."<br><br>The requirement imposed on prosecutors and the Crime Lab by King County District Court does not exist in state statute and does not appear to exist anywhere else in the country, the prosecutors news release said.<br><br>Washington State Patrol Chief John R. Batiste is praised the first ruling, saying he was, "exceptionally proud of the work done by lab staff," but expressed his reservations with the second ruling as well.<br><br>"This is clearly an attempt by the defense bar to clog up the criminal <a href="http://www.local.com/details/yx/Tempe-AZ/matthew-lopez-law-1474954.aspx">Influence Driving</a> justice system with unnecessary work," Batiste said in a WSP press release. "Neither the law nor common sense suggests that we should be doing lab work that is meaningless to a jury.<br><br>Batiste added, If someone is near a .08 and uncertainty could move them to a lower level, then a jury ought to hear that. <iframe src="https://www.google.com/maps/d/embed?mid=z2vVWAs_JEwA.kC3NH9GUPlkw" width="640" height="480"></iframe>But we should not be using our scientists time to do calculations in cases where no amount of uncertainty would prove the person innocent. <br><br>[[/html]] - Comments: 0
