I did purchasing, I did bookkeeping and then I did sales and now I’m doing the sales managing. So I’ve kind of had my hand in all aspects of the company.”Art School and a degree in the school of hard knocks has paid off for Damian, though she didn’t really imagine staying for 20 years at Ellen’s. However, Damian tells us that Ellen’s is “a stimulating place to work and because the job is exciting, it’s never redundant in that sense. There’s just constantly new stuff all the time. Our clients are fun and creative and it’s a good place to work.”They say time flies when you’re having fun, and it looks like such is the case for Damian.From being a receptionist to sales manager, it’s obvious that Damian’s responsibilities have grown as well. “I do my own sales,” says Damian, “I have clients that I have been working with for as long as I’ve been here. Most of my clients rely on me to come up with products or suggestions, the things that would work well for them. Then, I oversee two other sales associates here and help them with their sales and their clients.”It’s certainly a far cry being a receptionist.For 20 years, Damian still finds her job fascinating and enjoyable. Handling sales personally has given her opportunities to work with many interesting people and clients, from schools to businesses to the entertainment industry. “I feel lucky to work with a very diverse group of clients,” says Damian, “from people doing family reunions and birthday parties, to people like the Getty Museum and the Mad Men show, including working with the star Jon Hamm. It’s pretty exciting and impressive. That’s what makes it interesting every day.”Ellen’s Silkscreening has been serving the Pasadena, Greater Los Angeles, and San Gabriel Valley, as well as internationally, since 1978, and aside from its competitive prices and quality work, the company prides itself for giving the best customer service.Customer service courtesy of people like Andrea Damian.Ellen’s Silkscreening is located at 1500 Mission Street, South Pasadena.

first_imgAtletico Madrid forward, Diego Costa will appear in court today to face charges of alleged tax fraud.The Spain striker is facing the possibility of spending six months in jail if he is found guilty.Costa will face allegations that he defrauded the state of more than €1 million by not declaring payments of more than €5.15 million following his move from Chelsea in 2014.According to media reports, prosecutors in Spain will ask the judge for a six-month prison sentence and a fine of more than €500,000.Costa is also facing a charge of failing to declare image rights of more than €1 million.In Spain, sentences below two years for non-violent crimes can be exchanged for a fine, so if found guilty, Costa would avoid prison if he paid an additional fine of 36,500 euros.Costa is the latest high-profile footballer to face tax fraud charges.In 2017, Barcelona star Lionel Messi’s faced a 21-month prison sentence for tax fraud.However, he was able to avoid prison-time by paying a fine of €252,000 ($288,000), or  €400 for each day of the sentence.Cristiano Ronaldo was fined €18.8 million ($21.6 million) in 2019.The prosecutors accused him of dodging taxes in Spain between 2010 and 2014, when he was playing for Real Madridlast_img read more

Poultry exhibitors flock to the skillathon

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The poultry exhibition ban in Ohio this year due to concerns about the possible spread of avian influenza left many exhibitors disappointed, though there still were opportunities to participate in the project at the Ohio State Fair.Part of that learning process included the Ohio State Fair poultry skillathon that had 109 participants this year, a new record. In addition, there were a number of signs and displays around the grounds to educate fairgoers about Ohio’s valuable poultry industry.“It was a difficult decision to make to not allow any poultry at any of the fairs, exhibitions or sales in Ohio. We are as disappointed as anyone. We love the poultry at fairs and it is a great showcase for the public,” said Jim Chakeres with the Ohio Poultry Association. “It is also a very teachable moment for 4-H and FFA members.”There will not be an outstanding market exhibitor competition for poultry exhibitors this year but there will be a poultry package auctioned off in the Sale of Champions to provide funds for the Youth Reserve Program. As for next year’s fairs, no one knows yet if the poultry show ban will be reinstated.“Some say this avian influenza is done and some say it is a five-year cycle. I am hoping that we are done. This is spread by migratory waterfowl and we are really concerned about this fall when they go back down south and next spring when they come back north,” Chakeres said. “We want to make sure to stress that we do not have avian influenza and that eggs, turkey and chicken are safe to eat. This is not a disease of human concern. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention classified this as very low risk and there have been no transmissions to humans.”Here are the poultry skillathon age division winners who will be representing the poultry industry in 2015 Sale of Champions.9-year-old – Masson Sanders, Richland County10-year-old – Katelyn Vollrath, Union County11-year-old – Caleb Murawski, Ashland County12-year-old – Mel Lindner, Erie County13-year-old – Jillian Salmon, Delaware County14-year-old – Seth Abel, Licking County15-year-old – Dorothy Rees, Union County16-year-old – Autumn Mohler, Union County17-year-old – Taylor Thatcher, Clinton County18-year-old – Mallory Spring, Muskingum Countylast_img read more

China Goes After “Illegal” Online Maps

first_imgmike melanson Xinhua, the Chinese news outlet, is reporting this morning that the Chinese government will be implementing new standards that are aimed at preventing “state secrets being disclosed and uncertified maps published online.”The rules are an update to standards adopted one year ago, and, according to the Xinhua article, require “all Internet map servers to keep servers storing map data inside the country and provide public Internet protocol addresses.” We have to wonder how might this affect Google and the location-based-services market in China.The updated rules will also require that all map servers must “have no record of information leakage in any form in the past three years,” and violations exposing state secrets can receive jail sentences of seven to 10 years. The new rules, the article states, also pertain to maps downloaded or copied to mobile devices.Hiding government sites from online maps is certainly nothing new, but the Xinhua article makes several points that make us wonder what new implications these regulations might have. For example, it mentions that the new rules require “all Internet map servers to keep servers storing map data inside the country and provide public Internet protocol addresses”. How will this affect Google, which just recently moved its servers to Hong Kong? How will other maps services, such as Bing Maps, be affected?The article also mentions “a Japanese who measure 195 locations inside Longyan and located 80 of them on his map” who received “administrative punishment”. Is China looking to effectively outlaw the LBS boom we’ve seen in the U.S. and other countries? It would seem so. The article gives another example, citing “three Germans who collected geographihc information […] and later mapped these in computers.” Heck, we do that daily with applications like Gowalla and Foursquare. Internet censorship is nothing new, but it surely sounds like these rules are about to step it up a notch. China is the world’s largest mobile market and geo-locational technologies are booming, but these new regulations could have some serious effects. We asked Google if it had any comment on how this might affect its operations there, but have not yet received any response.

Saina will climb back to No. 3 position

first_imgSaina Nehwal kept the promise she made to her mother.A couple of days before the Indian ace left to play in the Hong Kong Super Series, she told mother Usha Rani that she would return with the trophy.Saina Nehwal is all smiles during the award ceremony in Hong Kong. Photo by APOn Sunday at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium, the 20- year- old Hyderabadi outlasted third seed Chinese Wang Shixian 15- 21, 21- 16, 21- 17 in a thrilling final.It was the perfect way to end a successful year as Saina won the year’s final Super Series event.She will now be competing at the Super Series Finals to be held in Taipei from January 5.This was Saina’s third Super Series title of the year. She had won the Singapore and Indonesian titles earlier.Speaking to MAIL T ODAY a couple of hours after winning the victory, Saina said she rated her Hong Kong triumph as one of her best achievements.”The field in Hong Kong was very tough. Also the fact that I could defeat Shixian in the final makes me very satisfied. Not only is she the Asian Games champion but is also one of the most consistent players in the world,” said Saina.It must be mentioned here that Saina had lost to Shixian in straight games at the World Championships in Paris in August.”That defeat to her (Shixian) at the Worlds still rankles me. She was just too good for me on that day and there was hardy anything I could do,” she said.advertisementAnother factor which made the Hong Kong win all the more memorable was the fact that it came soon after her disappointing loss at the Asian Games in Guangzhou.”This win does go some way in making up for my disappointing loss at the Asian Games,” she said.To jump one spotSaina’s win in Hong Kong has ensured that the Indian will climb one place to No. 3 when the fresh world rankings are released next Thursday. She is likely to finish ahead of Denmark’s Tine Bine (formerly Rasmussen) The fact that she missed five Super Series events – Denmark, Japan, France, and a couple of events in China – meant Saina did not finish as the top player in the world.”She had to miss five Super Series events due to her preparations for the Commonwealth and Asian Games. That is the main reason she did not finish the year as the world No. 1,” said chief coach Pullela Gopi Chand.He went on to add that what made him happiest was the manner in which Saina fought back after losing the opening game.”After losing the first game, she ensured that she changed her tactics. She was quick to learn from the mistakes she committed in the first game and was discreet enough to avoid them in the next two games,” said Gopi.P Baskar Babu, the coach who accompanied Saina to Hong Kong, said that she was playing at a very fast pace throughout the week.”She was moving very well. Also her smashes were very good and that made all the difference today,” he said.Babu also felt that Shixian was a bit taken aback by the pace at which Saina played.”I think Saina’s speed took her opponent by surprise. She did not expect her (Saina) to play at the same pace in the decider. The fact that Saina took a 11- 6 lead in the decider shows that Shixian was clearly rattled.”last_img read more
