    Some might just want to replace a leaky pipe themselves, but what if there is so much rust damage and cracks that getting old pipe off causes even more damage? The Paso Robles plumber from 4Gs Plumbing helps answer the question “Should I call the plumber?”

    PASO ROBLES, Calif. (PRWEB) September 07, 2018

    Some property owners or renters are very knowledgeable and can analyze and fix plumbing problems fairly easily, with no complications. But for too many others, the thought of even using a plunger to remove a toilet clog can seem like too much. 4Gs Plumbing has some suggestions that can help people determine if the job is do-it-yourself or needs a plumber.

    Cracked, rusted and broken pipes might be easily replaced if the pipe is easily accessed, if handy person knows which new pipes, faucets, or adapters to buy , and if it’s easy to crawl under a sink, turn off the water valves and swap out the old fittings with new ones. If there is any doubt about any of what was just mentioned, it is probably time to call the plumber.

    What about clogged drains and toilets? When clogs are a chronic problem and the plunger, snake and drain cleaning products are in frequent use, it is definitely time to call the plumber because something is going on somewhere else in the plumbing system. Plumbers these days, including the Paso Robles plumber, have the latest technologies to locate and repair clogs, broken and collapsed pipes, root invasion, and even problems with a septic system.

    Persistent leaks might be due to a faulty toilet or problems with plumbing for shower, bathtub, or washing machine. A leak that is creating a wet area needs the attention of a plumber to identify the source of the leak and not only repair it, but identify any water damage or mold that might be happening. A leaking toilet can create serious health problems from black water. A professional plumber not only knows how to fix the leak, but also knows who to call to repair any water damage, mold or black water damage to walls and floors.

    Leaks under a building can contribute to long-term moisture that leads to mold or black water contamination. No one wants to crawl under a house that might be leaking sewage. A professional with the equipment and technologies to identify and repair the problem and avoid contamination is the best person for this kind of a job.

    Problems with a septic tank or leach field can cause very unpleasant backups into a building through kitchen and bathroom plumbing or onto a lawn or street.

    Installing new plumbing as part of a remodel might seem simple, but there are an entire set of concerns that require a certain level of knowledge and experience. Shower plumbing is usually behind a wall. If not installed correctly, there is always the possibility of leaks that will damage walls and floors. A new toilet (or a re-seated old one) needs a seal between the toilet and floor. It is important that this seal be correct for the base of the toilet. Otherwise, it is going to leak and over time cause water damage and black water contamination.

    Some people are very skilled and knowledgeable to handle many of these situations. But, if there is any doubt or hesitation about anything to do with plumbing, the best bet is to call a qualified plumber.

    The team at 4Gs Plumbing has over 13 years of commercial and residential plumbing experience. The company is highly rated on Yelp, and offers discount coupons for teachers, veterans, senior citizens and more. Owner Brad Gilkey is pleased to help people troubleshoot and repair plumbing problems and install new plumbing fixtures and systems.

    In their book, “Protecting Nursing Homes and their Residents from the Unlicensed Practice of Law,” Florida Attorneys John R. Frazier, Leonard E. Mondschein, and Twyla L. Sketchley document how seniors become sitting ducks for non-lawyer insurance salesmen, financial planners, disbarred attorneys and others who appear to be legitimate Medicaid planners, as well as so-called Medicaid planning companies that profess to work with lawyers.

    LARGO, Fla. (PRWEB) September 07, 2018

    The handbook raises awareness of an ethical and fiduciary tragedy that happens all too often to Florida’s aging citizens. The tragedy is the Unlicensed Practice of Law, or UPL, related to Medicaid planning services. By reading this book, Florida seniors and the long-term care facilities in which they reside will become financially safer and wiser as to the right way to engage in Medicaid planning.

    Medicaid planning is a complex legal field where, if mistakes are made, the applicants can be financially devastated. Medicaid planning should only be done by licensed attorneys with specific training.

    But most seniors and their families in financial need are not thinking about this. They are bewildered by the nursing home’s admissions process and overwhelmed by their sudden financial consequences.

    Attorney John Frazier explains, “I have seen many cases where seniors were referred by trusted sources—such as social workers or nursing home administrators—to Medicaid planners who were not lawyers. These nonlawyers do not always have the senior’s best interest in mind. They have neither the skill nor expertise to handle the legal aspects of a case properly. If the planning fails, there is no regulatory authority to hold them accountable.”

    John adds, “Equally dangerous are people who have the best of intentions, and try to help seniors apply for and become eligible for Medicaid. Nursing homes are committed to helping the seniors in their care, but their administrators and staff are not trained to assist in Medicaid planning. Someone trying to help may unwittingly cross the line into the practice of law. Such UPL can cause great harm to the Medicaid applicant and to the facilities in which the senior lives.”

    Nursing homes and assisted living facilities must stay vigilant to the dangers of Medicaid planners who are not attorneys. This book will help protect Florida nursing homes and their residents by answering questions such as:· What are the things a nonlawyer Medicaid planner can and cannot legally do?
    · Can a nursing home get in trouble for working with a nonlawyer Medicaid planner?
    · Is it against the law for a nursing home employee to be paid a fee to refer Medicaid cases to a nonlawyer Medicaid planner?
    · Is financial exploitation concerning UPL and Medicaid planning a form of elder abuse?
    · What is the penalty if someone is charged with UPL?
    · How can a nursing home protect its rights?
    · How can an elderly Medicaid applicant protect his or her rights?
    · How does one file a UPL complaint in Florida?

    This handbook is part of an extensive effort to protect Florida seniors from financial exploitation through prevention and awareness. We must all work to increase public awareness about unlicensed individuals who engage in Medicaid planning, but shouldn’t.

    The Dragon Prince is influenced by Avatar: The Last Airbender in the best ways It’s been nearly 10 years since the finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender aired on television, and since then, no other show has quite scratched the same itch. Even though it was designed as a children’s cartoon, Avatar’s mix of complex world-building and charming, multifaceted characters has been nearly unparalleled. But Netflix might be about to change that.

    The Dragon Prince is an upcoming Netflix Original series from Wonderstorm, a new TV company helmed by gaming veterans who have worked on large franchises such as League of Legends and Uncharted. Co-written by The Last Airbender head writer Aaron Ehasz, this computer-animated show has an undeniable Avatar influence: The Dragon Prince is divided into “books” that correspond with magic...

    Delia Associates, a leading business-to-business (b2b) branding and marketing firm, announced that the company's Managing Director, Matthew Taylor, was named one of New Jersey's "Forty Under 40" by NJBIZ, the State's leading business magazine.

    WHITEHOUSE, N.J. (PRWEB) September 07, 2018

    The "Forty Under 40" is an award presented by NJBIZ to recognize New Jersey business leaders under the age of 40 who have already demonstrated a solid track record of leadership and innovation. Matthew Taylor will be recognized along with 39 other award recipients at the publication’s annual "Forty Under 40" event, September 20, at iPlay America in Freehold, NJ. Since 1993, NJBIZ has celebrated the rich array of talent in New Jersey by recognizing 40 young men and women who make outstanding contributions in their fields of expertise.

    "I am honored to be recognized by NJBIZ as one of New Jersey's top forty under forty this year,” Taylor commented. “I can safely credit our great team at Delia Associates, my amazing and supportive wife and family, and some truly wonderful clients who really made this possible.”

    “We’re all so proud of Matt for being recognized in this year’s class of forty under forty,” remarked Ed Delia, President of Delia Associates and 2006 Forty Under 40 recipient. “Matt is incredibly humble by nature and more inclined to highlight the accomplishments of others than his own. It’s so great to have the opportunity to cast a spotlight on him, as he is truly deserving of the recognition. He’s already accomplished so much in a relatively short amount of time. I’m sure many more great achievements are in Matt’s future.”

    Born and raised in Morris County, NJ, Taylor currently resides in Califon, NJ with his wife Amber. He is committed to the welfare of the regional community and donates a significant portion of his energies to several important causes in the region.

Hammar Foundation, which has existed to promote bicycle safety for children. Through Delia Associates, he is currently heading up an effort to rebrand Hunterdon Drug Awareness and Prevention, an organization at the front lines of combatting drug and alcohol addiction in Hunterdon County, where Delia Associates is based.

    Taylor earned his Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from the Sigmund Weis School of Business at Susquehanna University where he studied Entrepreneurship and Finance.

    Think Realty-sponsored NASCAR driver Jennifer Jo Cobb featured in new “NASCAR Heat 3” video game

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. (PRWEB) September 07, 2018

    Jennifer Jo Cobb, American NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driver, is represented in “NASCAR Heat 3,” a video game by Monster Games and published by 704Games. The third game in the popular NASCAR Heat series became available September 7, 2018 at retailers Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Game Stop and through Amazon. It is available digitally through Xbox One and PS4 Store.

    “NASCAR Heat 3” features an all-new dirt racing circuit, daily and weekly real-time tournaments, eight new dirt tracks and gameplay improvements. In 2011, Cobb, along with Danica Patrick, became the first two females featured in a NASCAR video game. This year’s inclusion in “NASCAR Heat 3” makes Cobb one of several female drivers to make an appearance in the game. The paint scheme featured in this release includes the Think Realty logo.

    “I’ve enjoyed a challenging yet rewarding career, but this year has seen some exciting firsts,” said Cobb. “I raced for the first time in the NASCAR Whelen Euro Series, international driver, Justin Kunz, recently made his debut with our JJCR team, and I launched my speaking career in Europe. The good fortune continues with inclusion in this game—I’m grateful.”

    The U.S. Embassy Tbilisi hosted Cobb from May 26 to June 2. She spoke in multiple locations to groups of female and male leaders about empowerment, leadership, entrepreneurship, overcoming personal obstacles and the benefits of inclusive education to the Republic of Georgia’s economy. Cobb led a female-only race at Rustavi International Moorpark that honored Georgia’s female soldiers, veterans and cadets.

    “We continue to be proud of our association with Jennifer,” said Eddie Wilson, CEO of Think Realty and Affinity Worldwide. “She shows that success comes through effort, determination, perseverance and an eagerness to help others. These are the same principles we strive for as a company.”

    Cobb continues to hold records in NASCAR’s Camping World Truck Series for the female driver with the most starts, the highest series finish and the highest finish by a woman in any of NASCAR’s top series at Daytona International Speedway, with her sixth place NCWTS finish in 2011. She is one of NASCAR’s few driver-owned teams and is the only female driver-owned team. Cobb launched Driven2Honor in 2011, to honor America’s female military members.

    CVN and the Center for Deployment Psychology are educating the public on suicide prevention techniques through online trainings and video series

    STAMFORD, Conn. (PRWEB) September 07, 2018

    The Cohen Veterans Network, a national not for profit philanthropic organization, has extended its commitment to saving lives, saving families, and saving futures with a robust series of activities during Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.

    CVN has treated more than 7,500 clients since its public launch in April 2016. The network has learned first-hand that many clients screen positive at intake for elevated risk for suicide, so we must ensure our clinicians are well-trained to assess for and reduce risk to save lives. The VA has indicated that 14 of the reported 20 veteran suicides per day were not seen in their system.

    “Preventing suicide is a top priority for the Cohen Veterans Network – every single day of the year. We have a substantial training program designed to prepare our clinicians to offer the highest-quality of care to our veterans and family members,” said Dr. Anthony Hassan, President & CEO of CVN. “This month, we are thrilled to offer a weekly series to the public, designed to help prevent suicide in our communities.”

    The entire series, running each Thursday this month, is co-presented along with the Center for Deployment Psychology. CDP provides training to military and civilian behavioral health professionals to deliver high-quality, culturally-sensitive, evidence-based behavioral health services.

    The webinars began yesterday with a session on Suicide Survivorship: applying the TAPS best-practice model to support military families, veterans and clinicians. This unit is being given by the nationally-recognized Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors.

    “Everyone can play a role in preventing suicide, not just trained clinicians,” said Dr. Caitlin Thompson, CVN Vice President for Community Partnerships. “The public should all feel some responsibility to take action when they see the signs, and potentially save a life.”

    Thompson is featured in a video series offering suggestions on how the general public can take action when someone they know demonstrates troubling behavior.

    The rest of the online training series will feature topics such as Suicide Prevention for Veterans with Other Than Honorable Discharges, Achieving the Promise of Suicidality Interventions, and Lethal Means Safety Counseling to Reduce Suicide Risk.

    Staff members from each of the 10 Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinics are actively taking part in these training sessions in September.

    ABOUT THE COHEN VETERANS NETWORK

    The Cohen Veterans Network is a 501(c)(3) national not for profit philanthropic organization for post-9/11 veterans and their families. CVN focuses on improving mental health outcomes, with a goal to build a network of outpatient mental health clinics for veterans and their families in high-need communities, in which trained clinicians deliver holistic evidence-based care to treat mental health conditions.

These offers are all possible due to the partnership with notable brands Crimson Trace, Holosun, Leupold, Pulsar, Steiner, Streamlight, Vortex and more.

    “Our brand partners join us in the belief that support for the military and veterans goes beyond offering them high-quality, innovative products and their participation in this campaign reflects that,” said Alessandro Minnocci, senior engagement marketing manager at OpticsPlanet, Inc. “We’re thrilled to partner with them in giving back to those who have sacrificed so much for our country, all by working with an incredible organization in Hope for the Warriors.”

    In addition to special brand deals, OpticsPlanet.com customers are able to tack on an additional, optional donation with any purchase that will go directly to support veterans. For a limited-time campaign exclusive SWAG Kits will be available as well. These items feature a collection of branded merchandise. Aside from the gear, what makes these kits unique is that 100% of the amount paid for each $20 kit goes to support veterans.

    “Hope For The Warriors is honored to once again partner with OpticsPlanet on this impactful promotion in support of our country’s post-9/11 warriors,” said Karen Lee, vice president of advancement at Hope For The Warriors. “The caliber of brands and products OpticsPlanet.com has gathered is nothing short of impressive. But even more so is the company’s commitment to giving back to those who fight for our freedom to hunt, shoot and enjoy the great outdoors.”

    ‘Mission for the Mighty’ is the latest OpticsPlanet.com campaign to support veterans, service members and their families.
