New website www.Hotels.Tube gives travellers unbiased and realistic review of hotels.

www.Hotels.Tube offers true presentations of accommodation options from different hotels from around the world for users to make WISE Reservations.

NEW DELHI, DELHI, INDIA, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hotels.Tube has officially launched its website www.Hotels.Tube allowing users to create and post videos of hotels and accommodation from around the world. The brand-new start-up company was established to give travellers a more realistic and unbiased look at hotels. On the website www.Hotels.Tube videos can be posted created by travellers, bloggers, and from their own in-house producers. Each video allows the hotel to be showcased in a more natural way than through many of the promotional clips and advertisements released to the public.
Travel websites like Trip Advisor and Expedia receive millions of visitors per month. Yet, many of the reviews for hotels are biased due to bad experiences or one traveller’s unhappiness with an aspect of their accommodation. One review can harm a hotel’s revenue as more people read and base their accommodation plans on the experience. Hotels.Tube aims to prevent these types of reviews from occurring. Travellers and bloggers have the chance to showcase a hotel through their video. Viewers can see exactly what it would be like to stay at a particular venue as they see all the major aspects of it.
One of the most unique features of Hotels.Tube videos and reviews, is it allows users to give their honest opinion of the venues. Viewers are able to hear honest and realistic reviews about prices, room size, amenities, and much more. The great information makes planning a trip easier as real travellers give viewers important advice.
In 2018, a serial fraudster was found guilty of selling fake reviews to hospitality businesses. Fake hotel reviews are a major concern for both hotel companies and travellers. Hotels.Tube hopes their videos and reviews can eliminate untrue information allowing both travellers and hotels to benefit.
Hotels.Tube allows users to create and post their own videos. It also has an in-house team of editors and producers who can create videos. The start-up has outlined its desire to work hand-in-hand with hotels to create realistic presentations of their accommodation. Hotels.Tube believes the more transparent a hotel or company can be about its rooms and experiences, the more successful it can be. Hotels can hire the start-up company and allow it access to their branch to showcase a true sense of the venue.

The Gandhi of Steve Jobs

(5) Steve Jobs (left) and 1997 Campaign of Apple, portraying Mahatma Gandhi.

Official Poster : The Gandhi Murder

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers…because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

— Steve Jobs

DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When asked by Time Magazine about his choice for the Person of the Century in 1999, Steve Jobs replied, “Gandhi is my choice for the Person of the Century because he showed us the way out of the destructive side of our human nature. Gandhi demonstrated that we can force change and justice through moral acts of aggression instead of physical acts of aggression. Never has our species needed this wisdom more.”(1, 2, 7)

Steve’s earliest tryst with Gandhi was probably during his trip in 1974-75 to India (2, 6). Upon his return, Steve stated:
"There is no one that embodies better what I want to become, other than Gandhi. He changed the world.”(2)

Gandhi probably changed Steve Jobs. Within a year, he had founded Apple (12), and destiny conspired with him to ‘Change the world’.
But it was after being fired by Apple that Jobs purchased a pair of circular, wire rim glasses to match the picture of Gandhi he'd had since his early 20s. Steve always kept a picture of Gandhi with him and history will remember him much like his hero (2). Men who thought differently.

During his second innings at Apple in the year 1997, Steve stood before a giant portrait of Mahatma Gandhi and said these words before a packed audience: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers…because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” (3)
Jobs left the world as ironically as his inspiration Gandhi’s violent assassination by a semi automatic Beretta fired at point blank range (11). The man who challenged technology and spearheaded one of the biggest technological revolution of our times died because technology did not have an answer to cancer. (13, 14)
Gandhi uttered the words ‘Hai Ram’ (Oh God) three times before he lost consciousness (11). One wonders if the last monologue of Steve Jobs ‘Oh Wow’ (10) repeated three times was his ultimate tribute to the man who inspired him all his life. Perhaps we shall never know, but the coincidence is unpalatable.

The Gandhi Murder’, starring Stephen Lang, Luke Pasqualino, Om Puri and Vinnie Jones, covers in depth the tumultuous last days in the life of Mahatma Gandhi that eventually led to his assassination on 30th January, 1948. The movie releases worldwide on 30th January, 2019.

Licensed MFT and EMDR Clinician Dr. Irit Goldman to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

MODESTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Growing up in Israel, Irit Goldman knew she wanted to be a psychotherapist, and also wanted to focus on children. She never dreamt that a few years as a special education teacher, to help her align with counseling children who have special needs, would grow into a lengthy career. When Dr. Goldman retired after 37 years in education (13 of it in Israel), she finally had the time to focus on her other great passion: diagnosing and healing patients using a modality known as EMDR. Dr. Goldman is one of only three clinicians in her part of California certified in this bilateral brain stimulation technique, which helps people cope with trauma and avert PTSD. That is why she was requested to counsel responders to the raging wildfires this fall, and why she volunteered to be on the frontlines of a war in Israel a few years back.

In her radio show, Dr. Goldman is going to explain just what EMDR is, how it was discovered by Dr. Francine Shapiro, and how useful it can be to unlock the brain section that stores memories. EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitizing Reprocessing, which is a mouthful to say, but not that hard to understand–especially when Dr. Goldman uses the analogy of the digestive system to explain how things get processed and eliminated by the human body (or when they get stuck and can’t be processed). By activating the two sides of the brain to work together, with eye movements similar to those in our REM sleep mode, people are able to process traumas—like being in a car accident, witnessing a crime, or suffering physical/sexual abuse—and to feel safe, confident and whole again.

EMDR is a complex process and Dr. Goldman knows it is not the counseling tool for everyone. She chooses what to use in her treatment sessions–which involve individuals, couples and groups—based on the patient and his/her distinct needs. Sometimes she will use traditional talk therapy, or cognitive behavioral therapy, to help resolve patient problems. Those may include depression, stress management, phobias, anxiety, relationship issues, ADHD and grief.

Irit Goldman received her Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) in 2002 and then a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology in 2004. She pursued training in EMDR in 2009 and frequently uses, or speaks about, this unique therapeutic modality. Listeners who want to know more about EMDR can watch a video up on Dr. Goldman’s website, or read the book The Body Keeps the Score (by Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk) that discusses how we store the memories of traumatic events inside.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Irit Goldman in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on Friday, January 19th 2019, at 3:00pm EST.

MF Press Global CEO Fabiano de Abreu reveals how to get the Instagram verification badge

The CEO of MF Press Global Fabiano de Abreu

Instagram Verification Badge

Fabiano de Abreu speaks freely about how the procedure of verification works and give tips on how to avoid being cheated by infamous scams

The best and more successful strategy to use when applying for the verification badge is having published articles in the press, published by the mainstream media outlets”

— Fabiano de Abreu

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — MF Press Global, a PR and social media advisory company with offices in the United States, Brazil, Portugal, Chile and Angola is the international company with more verification badges requests on the Instagram, with more than 500 requests until now.

The CEO of the company, the journalist and businessman Fabiano de Abreu, speaks freely about how the procedure of verification works, and he also teaches ways to avoid being cheated by the infamous scam of those who falsely claim to work with verification badges for Instagram profiles on behalf of the Facebook.

How to avoid being a victim of the ‘verification badge scam'

“First of all, we are not the Facebook. Also, there is no company that represents the Facebook. A big company like Facebook will not be represented by any third party companies that may jeopardize its name and reputation, in case of those ones, who allegedly represent them, having a problem. That's obvious. If someone says that works at or with Facebook, or have a bond with the company, you can be suspicious about that. Also, do not pay for any professional who claims to get you the verification blue badge before he delivers the service done, or you may have no blue badge and also lose your money. It happens all the time”, says Fabiano de Abreu

What’s the strategy to get the blue verification badge for your Instagram profile

“Press is the key. The blue verification badge is nothing more than a "celebrity confirmation”, which shows to the other users on the social media platform that you are actually a celebrity, a public person, or a company. To request the verification badge, you need arguments that proves your relevance. The best and more successful strategy to use when applying for the verification badge is having published articles in the press, published by the mainstream media outlets. I am not aware of another plausible argument for the verification badge. When we put together the documents, proofs, and published press releases about you or your company, then we have how to point out to the Instagram/Facebook the need of having the verification badge, in order to protect your account from hackers and fake accounts, and also to confirm that you are truly who you say you are“.

Perks Group Continues to Deliver Savings Across the US After 30 Years of Service

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Perks Group is known for offering savings across the country on almost anything a consumer can dream up, from traveling and luxuries to home necessities. Over the years, the Perks Group has built up a wide network of providers and improved offerings so PerksConnect users can easily access savings.

The Perks Group program helps its members save money on a range of products and services across the US through its easy-to-use platform. Perks is able to offer such a variety of deals because of a large (and fast-growing) network of companies they’ve built up during three decades of service.

The discounts on merchandise and services include brand name items and familiar companies that users know and trust. Besides luxurious purchases (such as savings on expensive electronics or airfare), Perks Group members also save on more essential purchases like grocery store items, gas, and dinner at local restaurants.

In the over 30 years that Perks Group has been active, they’ve built up a tremendous following of millions of members. When they began in 1988, the employer-sponsored savings program catered to companies with 1,000 or more employees. But today, the program reaches a vast number of businesses and companies in every state whose employees access daily savings.

Perks Group has grown to such heights that over 200,000 business locations across the U.S. today honor their discounts, making it one of the strongest and far-reaching discount programs in the country. The Perks Group adds new merchants into their network often, constantly improving their offerings with daily updates and deals.

Besides consistently adding new discounts to their program, the group keeps up with changes in technology to make their offerings even more accessible and easy to use. In 2011, Perks Group began offering their discounts through a mobile application called PerksConnect. The PerksConnect app is especially beneficial to traveling members as it allows discounts on the go. Members are able to journey through America and access local deals right from the convenience of their smartphones.

Because not everyone prefers to compile their savings in an app, Perks Group allows its members to access their discounts in several ways. Members can apply savings through an 800-number using a value code, by downloading and printing coupons, or by using instant savings when making purchases online through a provided link.

Besides deals for its members, the Perks Group program also offers opportunities for enlisting businesses to promote their own product or service in a giant network of retailers, businesses, and customers. New merchants are announced within the group after signing up, earning exposure in the process in addition to exclusive deals.

After 30 years, Perks Group proves to be a national leader in discounts with an impressive following and a wide circle of professional services and products. Entry to the group is beneficial to all parties involved and the list of advantages within the group continues to grow with each new year.

John K. Whitehead & Associates to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WEST KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Most leaders are doing what they should be doing; it's how frequently they're doing it. How frequently do you share your vision with your employees or staff? How frequently do you reward them for what they do and what they've done?

John K. Whitehead is an executive and leadership coach specializing in developing senior and emerging leaders in organizations. Whitehead helps his clients improve efficiency and productivity through enhanced interpersonal communications and behaviors.

Whitehead is an experienced leader, facilitator and certified coach with over 40 years of senior leadership and management experience. John K. Whitehead & Associates was formed in 2014 to provide coaching to both individuals and organizations that are interested in exploring how to improve the way they communicate and understand others. For over 20 years he has used and taught the Social Style Model®. He’s seen firsthand how it can positively impact individuals and organizations, significantly improving employee turnover and productivity.

“It’s about giving people a greater understanding of themselves,” says Whitehead. “It all starts with self-awareness. Who are you as an individual? What are your values? It starts with the ‘why’ and moves forward from there.”

Whitehead says effective leadership depends on a combination of strong relationships and the ability to convey an inspired, shared vision.

“You have to know what your own vision is first,” says Whitehead. “You have to know your own values and be able to translate that to inspire others, bring other people along. The other piece is encouraging others, giving them the opportunity to try things themselves, letting people do their thing, not always standing over their shoulder.”

CUTV News Radio will feature John Whitehead in an interview with Jim Masters on January 21st at 12pm EST.

Tracy Stough Grajewski of Laurel Summit Insights to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

EXPORT, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In this competitive and evolving talent market, individuals are looking for growth and development no matter where they are in their career. Businesses are looking for competitive advantage. Coaching offers a proactive way to continue personal leadership and team development to build a stronger workplace.

Tracy Stough Grajewski is the founder of Laurel Summit Insights, a human resources consulting company providing strategic business consulting in workforce and talent.

After a successful 30-year career in human resources, Tracy launched Laurel Summit Insights three years ago to pursue the talent and development side of human resources consulting. Laurel Summit Insights provides expert guidance in executive, retirement and career coaching, leadership team development and selection for mid-sized and start-up businesses.

“I enjoy working with companies who see the value of talent; business leaders who recognize, how much they've invested in their talent and share a desire to continually develop it,” says Tracy. “Organizations are realizing that their true competitive advantage is their talent and that treating talent appropriately and focusing on how people interact in the workplace really is meaningful. Having a third party to provide objective insights no matter where individuals are in their career can be really helpful, whether they are just starting out, in the middle or nearing retirement.”

For those getting closer to the end of their career, Tracy and her team focus specifically on the pre-retirement counseling.

“Studies have shown that people spend more time planning a two-week vacation than they do for their retirement,” explains Tracy. “In the US, we seem to think of retirement as just financial planning, but it is so not the case. When we start coaching somebody on the pre-retirement side, we begin with the assessment, which measures their level of preparation or planning. We like to focus individuals more on other aspects of their life: family and relationships, social life and leisure. How do they define meaning and purpose? How will they continue personal development? What hobbies do they love? How do they find inspiration in the world?

“Many times people don't realize that they get a lot of their structure, social interaction, and their feedback around purpose from their workplace, so getting people to be more introspective about what brings them joy and purpose and then structuring their planning around these arenas in their life is really transforming for people and gets them started on a plan that makes retirement really achievable for them. Then the financial planning becomes more directed toward a solid life plan.”

And there's an engagement value in it. People report stress in their lives because they don't know how they're going to work out some issues post-retirement.

“Preparing people to set personal goals and boundaries and have those conversations before they're faced with the situation can give them a whole lot of confidence and therefore alleviate some of the stress that they feel about the uncertainty of their future,” says Tracy. “Laurel Summit Insights curates pre-retirement resources and tools for people who have busy working and personal lives. Knowing that they can have more control and direction in retirement helps alleviate some of that stress.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Tracy Stough Grajewski in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on January 21st at 11am EST.
