PatchMaster Specialty Drywall Repair Franchise Opening in Cleveland

Experienced Sales and Marketing Professional Joseph Gilliam brings drywall repair franchise to the Northeast Ohio region

I decided to become a PatchMaster franchise owner right here in Cleveland; to put my professional skills to good use to serve my community and help people in my area.”

— Joseph Gilliam, PatchMaster owner in Cleveland

CLEVELAND, OHIO, USA, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Joseph Gilliam is a sales and marketing professional who spent the better part of two decades cultivating his skills in Northeastern Ohio. Now, he is investing in something different for him, something exciting and tangible to help homeowners and commercial real estate operators in the community.

Gilliam is opening a specialty drywall repair business, PatchMaster, a fast-growing drywall repair concept sweeping the nation. This is the first PatchMaster location in Ohio.

“I’ve always been successful in connecting with people and networking on the North Coast. My experience in marketing and my technical ability have put me in a unique position to pursue a lifelong dream of mine; to own and operate my own business,” Gilliam said. “And so, I decided to become a PatchMaster franchise owner right here in Cleveland; to put my professional skills to good use to serve my community and help people in my area.”

A graduate of The Ohio State University, Gilliam earned a BA in Marketing and Journalism. His PatchMaster franchise, which officially opened in November, services the greater Cleveland area as well as parts of 12 different counties on the North Coast.

PatchMaster’s business model offers customers a fast, professional solution for drywall repairs. Most busy handymen, large drywall companies or contractors don’t want to perform small drywall repairs. Service professionals like plumbers and electricians often don’t have the resources to fix holes they leave behind.

PatchMaster specializes in fixing holes caused by renters, plumbing leaks and DIY projects that just can’t seem to get finished. In most cases, PatchMaster can complete the job in one visit.

Currently, PatchMaster has more than 43 franchises signed in 77 territories with 26 franchises opened and operating. The franchise has opportunities for growth across Canada and the United States.

“We’re thrilled to have Joseph on board with us to bring PatchMaster to Cleveland and the state of Ohio,” said Paul Ferrara, CEO of PatchMaster. “We love welcoming franchise owners who are determined and hard workers — he told me that he wanted to become ‘the’ drywall expert in Cleveland, and there’s no doubt in my mind that he will go on to do just that. Joseph has proven himself to be an enthusiastic business owner and leader who is dedicated to growing his business. We can’t wait to witness him grow in his community.”

Gilliam is a member of the Willoughby Hills BNI group, as well as a member of his local Chamber of Commerce. In his free time, Gilliam enjoys competitive running and playing sports like basketball and football. As another way to channel his creativity, he writes novels in his free time.

The initial franchise fee for a PatchMaster franchise territory, which consists of a population up to 250,000, is $19,500 USD. The PatchMaster franchise system encourages military veterans to join its franchise, offering a 15 percent discount off the initial franchise fee to qualified applicants. Ongoing fees include a technology fee and a downward sliding scale for royalties starting at 9 percent. Franchisees attend a week-long training program at the company’s headquarters in Somerville, New Jersey.

PatchMaster is a low-cost franchise with a quick ramp up period. No drywall experience is required for owners – PatchMaster provides all the training, tools and resources to learn the model and run the business. Franchisees have access to support for marketing, including digital marketing and social media, job pricing, hiring, managing technicians and financial management.

For more information on this growing home services franchise, visit http://Patchmaster.com.

Emil Malak Pens an Op-ed: New antibody resistant coronavirus mutation N493K; Focus should be on testing

Emil Malak, CEO Voip-Pal, well versed in global politics, culture and health

VOIP-PAL CEO Emil Malak

VOIP-PAL Corporate Logo

CEOCFO Magazine logo

There is an urgent need for continuous testing every three days as well as making COVID-19 testing more widely available through innovative means such as testing vending machines.”

— Emil Malak

WASHINGTON, DC, US, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced it has published an op-ed (https://www.ceocfointerviews.com/emilmalakoped1120.html) by Voip-Pal CEO Emil Malak. Voip-Pal.com Inc., Voip-Pal (OTCQB: VPLM), a Bellevue, Washington based company is an inventor and pioneer of the switching technology now being used by many of the world's largest telecommunication and social networking companies, without which they could not connect Landline phone calls to Internet phone calls. Mr. Malak has other business ventures and is well versed in global politics and culture.

In February of this year (2020), just as the world was waking up to the news that people were fleeing Wuhan China, headed to worldwide destinations with the deadly coronavirus, Mr. Malak wrote his very first Op-ed on the subject. In the title of his article, “A Global Pandemic Has Already Started” Mr. Malak declared the novel coronavirus to be a worldwide pandemic one month before the World Health Organization did. Since then we have seen several of Mr. Malek’s predictions on the virus come true.

In his most recent op-ed, Mr. Malak discussed the new antibody resistant coronavirus mutation N493K. “The neutralizing antibodies that patients develop after being infected with a virus or following vaccination are not proving to be effective against this new mutant. The N439K mutation so-far is proving to be resistant to antibodies.

He continued, “N439K has already been identified in twelve countries and is increasing infection rates in the United States and Europe. As a result, within the next four weeks we could potentially see death rates increase. Authors of a recent study on the new coronavirus mutant conclude their findings could have consequences, not only on the efficacy of emerging vaccines but also the efficacy of antibody therapeutics.”
https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.11.04.355842v1

With studies such as the one by The University of Vermont Medical Center yet to be done, Mr. Malak who is very pro-vaccine and believes they save lives cautioned, “I have the utmost respect for politicians on both sides of the aisle that have dedicated their efforts into eradicating the coronavirus. One of the challenges is there are still too many unknowns before we can roll out a safe vaccine solution. Do neutralizing antibodies indeed vanish within a few months? Will antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) put those vaccinated in danger? Could a vaccinated person, thinking they are immune to COVID-19 become an asymptomatic carrier and spread the virus? How many doses of the vaccine will people need per year? Some suggest three of four doses per year to be safe. What about side effects? Will spike protein mutations complicate matters?”
https://www.uvmhealth.org/medcenter/clinical-trials-and-research/COVID-19-vaccine-study#
https://www.virology.ws/2009/07/24/virus-neutralization-by-antibodies/

Malak has repeatedly warned in his op-eds over the past nine months about the need to gather adequate data of at least two years before allowing a vaccine to go to the market. Recalling the mistakes of the 1960’s Thalidomide tragedy that led to tens of thousands of children born with birth defects, Malak wrote, “We need to learn from these tragedies and never repeat the same mistakes. Rushing into any drug or vaccine could lead to catastrophic consequences.”

Pointing to a study by Danish researches, Mr. Malak discusses another concern in the possibility that today’s vaccine may not work tomorrow because of virus mutation, “Researchers have documented at least two mutations of the coronavirus. In one instance the genetic sequence within the spike protein changed the position of the “614 G” aspartic acid (contains an amino acid and a carboxylic acid) to an “amino acid glycine.” That single change within the spike protein created a new COVID-19-2.0, far more contagious and deadly than the original. The second mutation was recently discovered in the mink farms of Denmark; two amino acid mutations within the spike protein. It is valid to question whether a vaccine would be effective after a mutation takes place in the spike protein. We do not know when, nor how frequently a mutation will take place, rendering the vaccine ineffective each time. Another important question that needs to be answered is how effective any COVID-19 vaccine will be on a mutated strain of the virus; a COVID-2.0.”

Mr. Malak continues, “As a result of this new virus all of Denmark’s 17 million farmed minks in their 400 mink farms are being destroyed and 240 or more mink farm workers are currently infected. This latest development provides even more reason why the focus should be on developing more effective therapeutics,” said Mr. Malak.
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/04/health/covid-mink-mutation.html

Mr. calls for what he calls, “The hammer and the dance” – for a new non-political task force. “It is necessary to form a national scientific advisory committee that is free from all political influence. The committee would provide two televised updates per week to advise the public of the facts regarding the coronavirus, its spread and what actions need to be taken by each state.”

Below is Mr. Malak’s proposal:
The Hammer – Europe is headed back to total lockdown, referred to as the “hammer” because of the resurgence of coronavirus cases. The virus is back in Europe vigorously, leading government officials to once again shutdown their economies. This radical action will be devastating to businesses and to the overall mental and physical health of Europeans and will hopefully be limited to a very short period.

The Dance – During the hammer period certain actions must be taken to get people back to work:
1. There is an urgent need for continuous testing every three days as well as making COVID-19 testing more widely available through innovative means such as testing vending machines that provide rapid results in one minute. Those that test negative are free to go to work, restaurants and live their lives normally. Those who test positive will seek medical attention and self-quarantine. More simple, rapid self-testing kits are needed.
2. Reconfigure workplaces providing the means for social distancing, disinfectants and mask wearing indoors.
3. Limit the size of indoor gatherings.
4. Indoor locations like restaurants, bars, and conference centers etc. could be retrofitted with air conditioning systems that burn out the virus during circulation cycles.
5. Close down tattoo parlors, massage parlors and prostitution businesses. Those with addictions should be treated in proper medical facilities.

People that do not adjust to the new norms necessary to deal with the virus will be leaving themselves vulnerable to potential infection and risks associated with the virus which includes death.

Malak, who has many years of experience dealing with the U.S. patent system hinted he may be writing a future article on the current state of patents in the United States saying, “Unfortunately, owning a U.S. patent today can be meaningless. It is no longer an asset but a liability.”

The Return Assets Division of Lauth Investigations International commits to contribute 1% of its revenue to charity

INDIANAPOLIS, IN, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every day, Lauth’s Return Assets Division puts unknown assets back in the hands of their rightful owners, and often sees the impact that monetary sums can make.  As a result, it is a natural progression that the company is also committed to ensuring some of those recovered assets go towards charitable causes.  

Mahatma Gandhi once said, “Generosity consists not the sum given, but the manner in which it is bestowed.” In that spirit, Lauth Investigations International has begun an effort to return a percentage of assets we recover back to the community. Lauth Investigations International Return Assets Division’s charitable mission statement is simply that our primary interest in giving, is to support the communities in which we live and work by investing in programs that lift up those who need a hand.  Each month the company selects a charitable organization in one of the communities in which it operates and contributes 1% of its revenues for that month.   

Lauth Investigations International named Coburn Place: Save Haven for its October’s charity. Coburn Place is a nonprofit that provides shelter to Indianapolis citizens who are victims of abuse.  The Coburn Place provides housing and services to people who are survivors of domestic violence and interpersonal abuse. In 2011, they became the first residential domestic violence program in Indiana to implement a model of service delivery based on both the physical and emotional needs of survivors. Their website describes a noble mission of safety and healing, “We empower survivors of interpersonal abuse. We believe in starting with safe housing and letting them lead the way. We offer supportive services and lift survivors—and their children—up so they can soar.”  

For the month of November, and in honor of Veteran’ Day, the Return Assets Division of Lauth Investigations International, selected Denver Colorado based Veterans to Farmers, a nonprofit devoted to helping veterans develop sustainable skills for the rest of their lives. This program is designed to assist veterans in assimilating effectively and productively back into the communities in which they fought so valiantly to protect.  Not only does it benefit our nation’s heroes, but Veterans to Farmers also benefits the community by supporting the establishment of local farms, increasing commerce, revenues, and food security for the entire area.  This benefit extends through economic chains to benefit consumers who are then able to enjoy the fruits of their labor while supporting local business – turning our protectors into providers.  

About Lauth Investigations International

In 2012, Thomas and Rain Lauth launched the Return Assets Division of Lauth Investigations after discovering the amount of unrecovered assets held by various entities amounted to over $80 billion. The Return Assets Division of Lauth Investigations International is an Indianapolis-based firm with additional offices in Florida and Colorado. Lauth Investigations assists heirs and owners by directing them to the proper channels to initiate the return of their assets, prepare proper documentation to register and defend the claimant, provide support to claimants to help recover the assets, and provide professional referrals for a legal representative.

Powur Expands Its Revolutionary Solar “Cost-of-Goods” Model In Colorado, Nevada, and the Carolinas.

DEL MAR, CA, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In Powur’s continuing pursuit of becoming one of the largest solar companies in the U.S., it has added four more states in which it will operate as a general contractor. Colorado, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Nevada homeowners can now work with Powur throughout the solar conversion process and take advantage of the savings that solar energy offers.

“Everything we do is data-driven, and we’re learning that we can scale up and reach more homeowners,” said CEO Jonathan Budd. “We’ve been on a hiring spree this quarter to meet our rate of growth and our customers’ needs. With our cost-of-goods pricing and decentralized teams, we are strategically going after states where we think we can do the most business and deliver the best products and services to homeowners.”

Powur’s cost-of-goods pricing almost always means it has the solar industry’s lowest prices.

Most importantly, they’ll get top-notch guidance, care, and service from every Powur solar professional working on their project.

“Our motto is ‘nail it, then scale it,’ and the data is showing that our strategy has been working very well in our current markets,” Mr. Budd continued. “Now we’re scaling it by offering our lower-priced, service-oriented approach to thousands more homeowners who want to save money on their energy bills while doing something good for the environment.”

Interviewing the Private Money Lending Expert Witness: Joffrey Long Explains

Interviewing a Mortgage Expert Witness, Faster, Better

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In litigation involving private money lending, expert witness testimony is required.

After some initial inquiry e-mails, you're on the phone with a prospective real estate lending expert. Can those calls be handled in a manner that brings you improved, faster results? Receiving hundreds of these calls over the years as a mortgage expert witness, I've observed huge differences in the ways that attorneys make these inquiries.

Here are a series of suggestions as to how you might get better results in less time:

Step #1: On what topics is an opinion required?

One challenge I find is that sometimes an attorney has been speaking for a period of time and I still havent' heard the specific area in which they would like the expert to form opinions. I would suggest opening, after approprite introductions, with a specific statement about possible areas of expert opinion / testimony. For example, "we're looking for an expert to testify about a hard money lender's investigation of a possible loan."

That alone, could enable the expert to indicate whether it's an area they could opine in, or perhaps self-disqualify quickly so you can both move on.

Next, (and this is interchangeable with the first step) would be to discuss areas of conflicts and logistics, such as:

* conflicts of interest
* deadlines for disclosure of experts, reports, or declarations due
* pending settlement negotiations, motions for summary judgement, or other pending court-related deadlines
* upcoming dates for trials, arbitrations
* logistics regarding retainers, fees, and the client
* information about the retaining law firm, whehter or not the attorney calling is the lead attorney and what, if any, other individuals from the same firm
may contact the expert
* information about other known experts retaining by opposing parties in the matter
* available documents, exhbiits, and other information available for review by the expert

Specific to private money lending or loan servicing:

* the type of loan, type of borrower (entity, individual) type of colalteral property, present status of the loan and a descirption of the status during the time for which testeimoy is desirec.
* how the loan was originatied
* whether the loan relied on the business purpose exemption
* by whom the loan was serviced
* information about private trust deed investors, and whether the loan was a fractionalized trust deed
* regulations, laws and practices that are in question:
* and other loan specific information
* the present status of the loan, borrower and collateral property

With a clear, step by step process, the participants in the call can quickly identify problems that prevent moving forward or can advance to the next step in the call.

I hope these suggestions improve your expert witness search results and more importantly, assist you in finding the correct private money lending expert witness for your case.

New Toolkit Helps Global Businesses Include More People with Disabilities in the Workplace

Corporate giants choose disability confidence as the 'right thing to do'

It is an important responsibility for us to foster a culture for diverse talent… It is the right thing to do and we also want to lead by example.”

— Sakshi Handa, HR Director of Unilever Bangladesh

HAYWARDS HEATH, WEST SUSSEX, UNITED KINGDOM, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Corporate giants such as Unilever, Diageo and Safaricom are leading the way to ensure people with disabilities have support and opportunities at work.

Lessons learned from these companies have helped shape new guidelines launched this week to enable CEOs, HR managers and property developers to foster more inclusive workplaces.

The ‘disability toolkit’ was launched this week as part of the UK aid-funded Inclusive Futures programme, in response to a growing demand from business leaders who want people with disabilities to be represented in their workforce, but do not know where to start.

It offers advice for businesses – big and small – to recruit more people with disabilities, ensure workspaces are accessible and support employees with disabilities to achieve their potential.

Experience of working with Unilever, Diageo and Safaricom have contributed to the practical guidelines as well as that of jobseekers, disability rights groups and local businesses in Uganda, Bangladesh, Kenya and Nigeria.

Susan Scott-Parker, Founder of Business Disability International and co-author of the toolkit said: ‘These unique, practical guides are designed to meet the needs and expectations of business because we have learned that making it easier for employers to say ‘YES’ inevitably makes it easier for job seekers with disabilities to find meaningful employment.’

1 billion people are estimated to have a disability around the world, yet employment numbers remain incredibly low across most countries.

The International Labour Organization estimates that as much as 3 to 7 per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is lost within middle and low-income-countries as people with disabilities are excluded from the job market.

Simon Brown, Inclusive Futures’ Global Technical Lead said: “Employing people with disabilities has clear benefits not only for the people employed, but also for businesses. One estimate suggests that there’s an untapped spending power of $8 trillion waiting for businesses who recognise this.

“But contrary to what people might expect, what we’ve seen is that the financial side has not been the driving force here for these companies – it is the fact they believe hiring inclusively is the right thing to do.”

“The moral argument has really won, and from a Diageo perspective” says Eric Kiniti, Group Corporate Relationships Director at the East African Breweries Ltd, a subsidiary of Diageo. “This week we’re launching our 2030 targets on sustainability and diversity and inclusion is one of the key metrics that we’re looking at.”

Sakshi Handa, Human Resource Director of Unilever Bangladesh, said: ‘It is an important responsibility for us to foster a culture for diverse talent. Going forward, we want to be able to welcome persons of disability. It is the right thing to do and we also want to lead by example in the industry disability and inclusion space.”

As well as releasing the guidelines, Inclusive Futures has worked with companies such as Safaricom to deliver disability confidence training to hundreds of line managers this year. It has also created a “First Shot” scheme to encourage young job seekers with disabilities to apply for vacancies with the company.

The toolkit was launched at an online event was hosted by the International Labour Organization (ILO) and attended by big brands including Coca Cola, Unilever and Safaricom. A panel of speakers including Eric Ngondi, board member of the United Disabled Persons of Kenya, Murteza Khan, CEO of Bangladesh Business & Disability Network and Paul Kasimu, Chief HR Officer at Safaricom discussed how valuable the tools are in helping businesses say ‘yes’ to becoming more disability confident.

Pack and Load Services Announces Expansion and Moving Service Providers Recruiting Initiative

Pack and Load Services, a leader in the moving and storage industry, announced today that it is recruiting moving service providers across multiple markets.

Pack and Load Services is looking for partners that are passionate about providing high levels of service to people during the stressful time of moving belongings or relocating family.”

— Jed Prescott, Director of Marketing and Analytics at Pack and Load Services

LARGO, FL, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pack and Load Services, a national leader in the moving and storage industry, announced today that it has experienced a period of record growth and is actively recruiting moving service providers across multiple markets. The recruiting initiative will expand the firm’s footprint and allow the company to better serve both major metropolitan areas and rural markets. The firm is particularly focused on finding partners in high trafficked states such as California, Washington, Oregon, New York, Texas, Florida, and Illinois.

Pack and Load Services has been working to differentiate itself as the moving and storage industry’s leader in customer service. Those efforts were rewarded when COVID-19 caused an increase in interstate moves due to changes in workplace dynamics. Individuals are rapidly moving away from large metropolitan areas to more cost effective and quality of life driven regions. They are looking for well respected moving and storage companies in which they can entrust with their belongings. Pack and Load Services operational procedures, reputation, and A rating with the Better Business Bureau has separated the organization from others in the industry.

Pew Research Center has estimated that one-in-five U.S. adults (22%) have either changed their residence due to the pandemic or know someone who did.

“We are excited about our growth and expansion,” said Jed Prescott, Director of Marketing and Analytics at Pack and Load Services. “Pack and Load Services is looking for partners that are passionate about providing high levels of service to people during the stressful time of moving belongings or relocating family.”

About Pack and Load Services
