Pamela Jane Nye/2020 – At work and at home.

Global nurse-thanking challenge and tuition-free continuing nurse education plans behind Florence Nightingale comparison to acclaimed California nurse

Save one life … and you're a hero. Save a hundred lives … and you're a nurse.”

— Florence Nightingale, 'Notes on Nursing' (1860)

MALIBU, CALIFORNIA, USA, May 31, 2020 / — "I don't consider myself a hero, and while flattered, it's also embarrassing when asked to compare myself with Florence Nightingale," explains Pamela Jane Nye. And given her 'Iowa nice' upbringing, people who know her are not surprised about Nye's "predictably humble" demeanor.

Still, there is that verifiable history of local, national, and global news media stories to support the "maverick nurse" or "Florence Nightingale 2.0" comparison argument., e.g., See a Nurse? Thank a Nurse! Team Challenge Invites America's Public to Unite and Collectively Thank 3.8+ Million Unsung Hero Nurses … 'Maverick' Boss Breaks From Continuing Nurse Education Venue Stereotype … Retired UCLA Nurse Savings Replaces Pulled Sponsorship with Retirement Savings … California Nurse Turns Covid-19 Lemon to Lemonade … No-Fee Continuing Education – a Big Benefit to 4-Million Nurses.”

The argument for Nye-Nightingale comparison includes both are known for their innovative approach to educating nurses. And like Nightingale, Nye’s become a globally recognized name for her nurse image advocacy; she's also a provider of innovative continuing nurse education. Controversy resulting from breaking status quo nurse traditions is another deserved and mutually shared attribute. It's also the only comparison to which Nye pleads "guilty."

It's also Nye who leads the argument against the Nye-Nightingale comparison, stating, “While deeply humbled, there truly is no comparison when it comes to the sacrifices Florence made, beginning with the care she gave to wounded and dying military soldiers. The same applies to the life-saving nurse healthcare changes for which Florence was singularly responsible."

"What I can accept," Nye concedes, "is that Florence Nightingale was and remains a motivating influence for much of the nurse-related changes I've been able to accomplish, particularly" Nye adds, "those things I'm currently planning to accomplish."

By "those things," Nye's referring to her ambitious and innovative tuition-free continuing nurse education plans, and her even more ambitious Operation Scrubs’ See a Nurse? Thank a Nurse! Team Challenge.

Regarding her surprise retirement notice tendered after her story-book climb to the peak of an acclaimed nursing career, Nye explained, "I am blessed to have achieved all of my nursing career goals, and then some. Now I'm going to be a full-time nurse image advocate and innovative nurse educator. I want to champion positive nurse awareness. I want to change what and how nurses receive their license-required continuing education. I also want to find creative and tradition-changing ways to provide working nurses with scholarships for advanced nursing education degrees."

By month’s end, Nye plans to announce progress and specific details about Operation Scrubs' "See a Nurse-Thank a Nurse Team Challenge. That includes explaining how she expects to recruit 3.8+ million people to post online 'thank you collectively' messages honoring America's 3.8+ million registered nurses, plus another twenty million nurses worldwide."

When asked for a final comment, Nye smiled and quoted from Florence Nightingale’s (1860) ‘Notes on Nursing,’ stating, "Save one life … and you're a hero. Save a hundred lives … and you're a nurse.”

Wildlife Trade Campaign during COVID-19

WWF Survey Chart

Digital Storytelling Agency Bumbuku Creatives interviewed with WWF about the relationship between wildlife trade and disease outbreaks.

93% of people support closure of illegal wildlife markets in South-East Asia and Hong Kong.”

— Aslıhan Tümer, WWF Head of Campaigns

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, May 31, 2020 / — WWF Wildlife Trade Campaign during COVID-19

Over 90% support closure of illegal wildlife markets in South-East Asia and Hong Kong

After the current pandemic, COVID-19, was confirmed as a zoonotic disease – transferable from animals to humans – Digital Storytelling Agency Bumbuku Creatives interviewed the Head of Global Campaigns at WWF Aslihan Tumer about the relationship between wildlife trade and disease outbreaks.

World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) has been working towards the closure of unregulated wildlife trade across South-East Asia. They are running campaigns in Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Hong Kong and Japan. The pandemic outbreak has placed immense focus on wildlife crime and the campaign.

In order to benchmark their stories and the impact they are trying to create during these turbulent times, NGO-focused digital storytelling agency Bumbuku Creatives reached out to WWF and talked about what wildlife trade is, how to regulate it in a functional way, and its impact on the world, with Aslihan Tumer, the Head of Global Campaigns at WWF.

Experts have warned the global community of how trading markets can bring about diseases but the call-to-action has been close to nothing.
WWF has been working on the Illegal Wildlife Trade campaign for a long time but now the focus has shifted. This shift is towards closing illegal, unregulated, and high-risk wildlife markets. Legal wildlife trade entails “plants and animals that are caught or harvested from the wild and then legitimately sold as food, pets, ornamental plants, leather, tourist ornaments and medicine.” The problem, however, appears when illegal wildlife trade occurs.
Bumbuku gets up close and personal with Aslıhan Tumer about the WWF campaign against illegal wildlife trade.

They discuss the context behind what illegal wildlife trade is, why its demand is so high, its relationship with disease containment, and finally, what can be done to mitigate potential disease outbreaks. The interview gives hope towards a future where illegal wildlife trade is better regulated. Most importantly, it shows the current climate of support for governments to take action.

For WWF’s campaign against illegal wildlife trade, the essential aim is to end trade of high-risk taxa from which wild animals end up in markets like those in Wuhan, China. Through this, they will be able to remove one of the primary ways in which zoonoses are transmitted. Besides laying out the context of wildlife crime, the interview tries to spread awareness among NGOs, leading change-makers, and the general public. Bumbuku Creatives promoted WWF’s “Opinion Survey on Covid-19 and Wildlife Trade in 5 Asian Markets” using data-driven storytelling. It builds a story about the relationship between humans and nature that resonates with anyone who will read it, and be interested in exploring Bumbuku’s works.

Auntie Helen's charity in San Diego steps up to help Frontline Medical workers and the "At Risk" Community!

The small charity with a big heart offers free laundry services to medical workers at hospitals and clinics and operates a food distribution feeding low income.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2020 / — Rod Legg, Executive Director of Auntie Helen's charity thrift was greeting Case Managers and packing food bags. He explained "they arrive to pick up groceries for the At risk clients and they deliver what we have had donated by local grocers.

Our mission has always included helping those in need with food. The weekly distribution helped between 15-25 since the beginning but post Covid19 need is over 300 a week.

Auntie Helen's saw the need to keep the clients with underlying health conditions and low income safe at home. We reached out to case managers around San Diego and with 8 agencies delivering we fed 331 families last week.
The charity was founded by Gary Cheetam in 1988 by helping the Hiv/AIDS community. Gary would do the laundry for the people with AIDS at a time when no one wanted to touch the patient much less the laundry.

Today we do the laundry for those who physically are unable and it's expanded to help our frontline Medical Workers in this Pandemic. We saw the need to give back to the healthcare community as a way to lighten the everyday stress.

We usually finance multiple programs through our thrift store but that has been closed for three month and yet our demand has never been greater.

We got creative with a silent bid auction window and it keeps our shoppers involved. The items in the window are clearly numbered and you simply email is a silent offer and the item number to and we notify winners for curbside pick up. It has been so successful that it will continue for a long-time.
We are evolving to a online store and with the help of Rev365 we should have a new website to serve our customers at and that site should go live mid June 2020.

We stepped up in this Pandemic and we now except donations of gently used or new merchandise daily at our thrift store as well as canned goods for our ongoing food drive. We also except cash donations mailed to our charity at Auntie Helen's charity, 4127 30th street, San Diego, California 92104

We have also partnered with AAA auctions to handle our high end merchandise that we can't sell in our thrift.
We are reopening our store with a new open air sidewalk sale with all covid19 protocols in place. We will begin this process the first week of June.

We will get through this but not alone so please help us to help others.
This little charity has big heart as it changes to meet the new norms.

How Companies Can Stay Afloat During the Pandemic Explains Rachel Daddesio

Rachel Daddesio Montgomery

Companies Need to Learn How to Adapt During the Pandemic, Explains Rachel Daddesio

MONTGOMERY, TX, UNITED STATES, May 31, 2020 / — Many companies are unable to operate “as usual” during the COVID-19 pandemic. Either due to their business being deemed non-essential or because of social distancing, companies have had to consider exploring how they will stay afloat financially. CPA Rachel Daddesio explores some of the options that are available.

One of the first things that Rachel Daddesio suggests doing is to examine what government benefits are available. Small businesses are able to get some financial relief from the federal government. Applications can be made in order to get grants that will provide funding, though it can take a month or longer to get approved.

Rachel Daddesio also identifies that many small businesses can push sales and payroll taxes for several months. This can help to offer some financial flexibility to businesses that are struggling during the pandemic.

Rachel Daddesio has worked with a number of businesses to build sustainable budgets before and during the pandemic. With so many companies struggling to bring in the needed revenue, she explains that it involves creativity. She has referenced several companies that have learned to adapt during the pandemic, changing the products they offer, or how the products are offered.

With many states lifting alcohol regulations, restaurants and bars are able to offer to-go alcoholic beverages. As such, restaurants and bars may not be able to offer in-house dining but they can offer pitchers of margaritas, gallons of rum punch, growlers of beer, and more. It can be a way to generate revenue in the unique economy that the U.S. is faced with.

Other companies have adapted, Rachel Daddesio points out, by thinking outside the box. What a business would have typically offered within their location is now being offered online or via a curbside pickup. It’s allowing businesses to generate revenue despite having to close their doors. Additionally, it can ensure that people who are loyal customers are still able to get what they need.

Rachel Daddesio suggests that small businesses look at what their competition is doing. This will allow them to stay competitive while also driving at least some income in until it is possible to open up. She also warns that even when businesses can re-open, it may take 12 months or longer to resume normal income levels.

As a CPA, Rachel Daddesio has seen firsthand how the pandemic has affected businesses in every industry. Even those that are considered essential are still faced with financial struggles. Those who want to stay afloat need to find a new normal so that they can adapt to what people need. Businesses need to be creative while offering plenty of safe options for customer interactions.

Gary Davies' Epic Fundraising Challenge 550Km run from Malaga to Madrid – Running for Carbonquo”

— Project Planet

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, May 30, 2020 / — In a recent interview Gary Davies comments on the Carbonquo' Fundraising Challenge.

As founder of Project Planet, I feel it's my responsibility to do whatever it takes to rally support. Ultimately, it's the people who we are able to inspire to take action that will mark the success of this fantastic initiative.

We need many voices to ensure that the major commerce and retailers players of the world stand up and take note".

The challenge begins in Malaga on Friday 25th September and finishes 10 days later on Sunday 4th October in Madrid

Gary went on to say: "I'm really not looking forward to running 55km a day for 10 days straight, that's 13km more than a marathon EVERY DAY!

whilst I pride myself to be in good shape, I've never done anything like this before and I know it's going to be next level hard. It could go one of two ways, either I make it and the campaign is a success, or I die trying.

For me it's about creating social awareness around the initiative. The Project Planet platform will be a success if everyone gets behind it

Doing this insane challenge is a call to action for people everywhere to take a stand in the fight against Global Warming .

We have created a world where climate change is affecting every corner of our planet.

Nature longer determines our survival, we now determine the survival of nature

We can still turn the tide and stop global warming, but it's going to take more than just a wish for change, to succeed. We're all going to have to do our bit and running 550km in 10 days is mine.

A day when we no longer worry about rising sea levels, droughts, disease, diminishing forests or animal species dying, is on the horizon.

If we are ALL willing to take action, we can undoubtedly preserve the wonders of our marvellous planet for our children and the generations to come

Our future, their future, hangs in the balance, and our actions will determine the fate, of all of us.

No God, Government or scientist is going to save our home. It's up to US".

Gary intends to raise £55,000 and would love support from individuals and businesses who want to play their part in helping reverse the trend of global warming.

DocPatient Launches Game-Changing Website for Doctors Care and Healthcare Organizations

Having a website that doesn’t have any SEO is like having a car that doesn’t run”

— Michael Morales – COO, DocPatient

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, May 30, 2020 / — DocPatient, a Southern California based digital marketing firm, has launched a new healthcare organizations listing website DOCPATIENT.COM with accompanying service lines that will facilitate, nurture, and grow business to business (B2B) and business to consumer (B2C) connections. The executive leadership of DocPatient utilizes the strategies of Fortune500 creative/digital marketing and healthcare organizations that will yield instant value and return on investment for listing or subscribing companies such as Doctors Care, Dental Practices, Medical Training Schools, and other Healthcare Organizations. The marketing agency has created a differentiated product and service that offers unique benefits to the community they serve in healthcare.

What does DocPatient have to offer?

The DocPatient website will offer job listings, service listings, and product listings for healthcare organizations, doctors care, independent medical consultant roles, etc. They will also provide web services such as web design, development, analytics, and SEO to boost the online presence of its clients. Creative artwork, logo, branding and visual content will be available to clients who are seeking more engagement from social media audiences. Content production such as healthcare blogs and articles will be part of the SEO campaigns they will provide as well as guest posting and online directory listings. The talented team at DocPatient includes decades of web design, development, SEO as well as healthcare administration and education expertise. DocPatient's founders Michael Morales and Guillermo Misa have been working together for more than 10 years. Michael Morales runs Dialysis Education Services, CareLinq, HSRenal and has extensive experience in the healthcare industry. Guillermo Misa runs Claymind, a software engineering company that has built healthcare web applications like Dentistreet, and even Dialysis Education Services' database and student registration system.

DocPatient as a Business Listing Provider

As a healthcare business owner, medical consultant, employer, or job seeker it can be a challenge figuring out what advertisement channels, marketing campaigns, job boards, and networks to align with. The healthcare industry is heavily dependent on direct referrals from entities such as doctors care, medical offices, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, clinics, and the like. Owners, administrators, marketers, and anyone counting on those referrals can be daunted by the task of maintaining the relationships, presence, and relevance with referring sources to meet operational revenue requirements. In this COVID-19 era, one must maximize efficiencies in the referral process of patients/clients and staff to minimize the potential exposure of patients, staff, and ourselves. The concept of safer at home applies to our marketing efforts as well; the internet gives a powerful reach with a ripple effect on well-planned campaigns. By listing a company on DocPatient you leverage a high ranking, high reputation, and catchy URL website audience. The assumed network gives credibility to the wholistic nature and observation of patients’ rights to choose options that suit them best. DocPatient also has a subscription-based advertisement space for banners display, video play, or document distribution that can give even greater value to businesses with budget allocation for web services.

DocPatient as a Website Content Provider

"The problem nowadays with healthcare websites is that there is a lack of fresh, unique and relevant content. When dental practices or doctors care companies sign up with a website provider, all of them get the same default content as part of their website. This is not good for SEO as top search engines cancel out websites with duplicate content", says Guillermo Misa, CEO of DocPatient. For healthcare organizations such as doctors care, dental practices, and medical consultant roles wanting to be noticed by their target audience, a focused blog can be an excellent transitional tool. A regularly updated website or web page that is written in an informal or conversational style brings value by connecting you to the relevant audience, introduces organic keywords, boost traffic, increase SEO rankings, and send quality leads to a website.

DocPatient as an SEO Agency

Many healthcare organizations do not realize how important SEO is to their business. They may be contented with just having a website with no organic keywords and traffic at all. “Having a website that doesn’t have any SEO is like having a car that doesn’t run. A lot of dental practices and doctors care facilities have outdated websites that aren't just useful anymore.”, says Michael Morales COO of DocPatient. SEO improves the quality and quantity of a website’s traffic by increasing visibility to users of a web search engine. SEO improvements reflect unpaid results and exclude direct traffic and the purchase of paid placement. With a wide range of options like Bing, Yahoo, Youtube, Amazon, and Yandex, Google continues to grow and be the number one search engine with its PageRank technique that sorts search results. Google also incorporates many of its other services, such as Google Maps and Google Local, to provide more relevant search results (Google, 2020).

DocPatient offers different SEO strategies such as organic keyword content creation, blogging, guest posting and link building. They ensure your website is easily accessible by search engines. Website performance, security, and the presence of required SEO meta tags are top search engines pre-requisites. One key thing to understand is how Google and other search engines' algorithm works. A lot has changed in the SEO world. Tons of comma-separated keywords, non-relevant high-volume keywords on your pages, backlinks from spamming websites can harm your website's reputation more than it does good. If your SEO is properly done, expect an increase your website's online presence, reputation, and visibility in the top 10 search results of Google.

The reality of the situation is that most consumer decisions are influenced by what they see and the impressions made by the presentations business put out. DocPatient is a catapult to business visibility and the web services offered by the company will ensure professional and eye-catching content for subscribing companies. Web irrelevance can be a business killer and should not be tolerated by any business with a consumer target.

The Art of Positioning "You" for Extraordinary Career Success

Will Your Video Interview Get You The Job?

Grade My Video Interview Provides Critical Feedback For Your Next Job Interview

Video interviewing is the most significant new employment tool added to the hiring process in the last decade. It’s not a question of if you will be interviewed via video, but when. Be prepared!”

— Heidi Allison

DETROIT, MICHIGAN, USA, May 29, 2020 / — In light of the dramatic shift in the employment landscape over the past few months, employers have begun to rely more heavily on video interviews to find the perfect employee. It’s a trend that will grow in the coming months and years, as employment practices evolve and the efficiency and convenience of these interviews becomes clear. offers a revolutionary new service for job seekers that allows them to create a mock video interview and have it evaluated by a team of employment experts. These specialists will go through your video point by point, providing comprehensive feedback and advice on the elements that employers consider during the hiring process.
Why is this a tool every job seeker should utilize? First impressions are critical, and a short video interview may be your one and only opportunity to impress a prospective employer. An effective video interview is an essential job seeking tool, along with your resume, professional list of references, and letters of recommendation.
3 Important reasons HR Professionals love the video interview (and why they’re here to stay):
• Practicality: With current social distancing guidelines, in-person meetings are a non-starter. Video calls are helpful but require a time investment by interviewers that is unwarranted in the early stages of determining candidate suitability. Reviewing a 3-5 minute interview video makes more sense than scheduling a live call or video chat with someone who may not even meet the initial job requirements.

• Efficiency: The time required to conduct interviews often means a significant delay in processing your application for employment; interviews are just one of many tasks in a busy hiring manager’s schedule. Prerecorded video interviews allow HR professionals to view your information whenever they have a free moment instead of waiting for a scheduled call or video chat, allowing for quicker advancement of the hiring process.

• Personalization: Video interviews personalize a candidate. That two-dimensional piece of paper your resume is printed on doesn’t tell them a thing about your outlook, the way you conduct yourself, or whether your personality might be a good fit for their organization. A video gives them strong indicators of all those things, and more.

Prerecorded interviews are sure to become the industry standard in reviewing job applicants. Make sure yours gives you the best possible chance of landing that new job!

Prominent West Hollywood Gym Owner, Tom Nelson, Reacts To Economic Impairment Report

Tom Nelson, West Hollywood’s Top Trainer

Muscle Mechanics

“Small businesses like mine that were denied an EIDL loan and are having difficulty receiving a PPP loan are forced to open whether given 'permission' or not”.

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, May 29, 2020 / — While the world is gradually starting to open its doors to customers one step at a time, its hard to ignore the economic punch this pandemic has taken on small businesses such as fitness studios and other players in the fitness field. In an article published by Bloomberg News, investment bank Harrison Co. has claimed that fitness clubs hit by Covid-19 closures are facing a swell of bankruptcies with more than $10 billion in sales wiped out as clients abandon memberships. Winner of the Best of Los Angeles Award- “Best Gym in Los Angeles – 2020”, Tom Nelson, is no stranger to these tough times and reflects on how his popular West Hollywood gym, Muscle Mechanics, has taken a toll from this pandemic.

Gyms already filled with debt face long-term income declines amid social-distancing initiatives to counter the spread of coronavirus in the U.S. In response, Tom states, “As the owner of Muscle Mechanics I can honestly say that my company has lost $100,000 in revenue and gone $80,000 in debt since closing on March 16.” Unfortunately, a number of other fitness owners are also being forced to deal with these staggering numbers that continue to increase as the days go by. People also aren't exactly feeling eager to run to their gym amidst some openings, according to the report. To avoid being in close proximity to other individuals, folks are likely to continue shunning closely packed fitness centers.

Federal and state assistance is also a consideration that Tom does not believe is supporting small businesses to the best of its capacity. Tom says, “Small businesses like mine that were denied an EIDL loan and are having difficulty receiving a PPP loan are forced to open whether given 'permission' or not”. He continues by saying, “This, in effect, makes law-abiding, tax-paying citizens outlaws for opening their businesses to provide for their families”.

A Harrison survey of 1,000 fitness club users, reports that more than a third of gym members have canceled or plan to terminate existing memberships. Some ideas the leaders of the fitness industry are considering to keep clients safe are using painters tape to mark spaced out areas to practice social distancing, masks for members and employees, extensive disinfecting, and no community chalk buckets. Members of the fitness industry stress that, while they really need to reopen soon to save their businesses, they will work with the state of California and local officials to do it safely.

Tom Nelson

Tom Nelson is West Hollywood’s Top Trainer and owner of Muscle Mechanics, which is a gym that is completely private, fully stocked with commercial quality exercise equipment.

Tom has been a fitness enthusiast his entire life but decided to make it his career 15 years ago. In that time, Tom scored the highest in the history of the ISSA certification board, built the largest Private Training Facility in Los Angeles, and have been named West Hollywood’s Top Trainer by his peers in the fitness industry. He has also had an outstanding record as a bodybuilding and figure trainer that is unequalled in the industry – 5 first place wins for men in bodybuilding and 16 first place wins for women in figure contests.

As opposed to simply being a Fitness Trainer, Tom considers himself to be a Fitness Teacher. In all his years as a Fitness Teacher and Nutrition Specialist, Tom has learned that the more someone understands about what they are trying to accomplish, the more successful they will be at it. So, instead of simply telling you what to do in each session, Tom teaches you how to exercise properly, which means you learn the most effective, efficient and safest ways to exercise.

In addition, he will teach you “everything” you need to know about nutrition and how to apply that knowledge to your life. Tom is one of the most sought-after Nutrition Specialists in the Los Angeles area, and has developed a system (patent pending) that simplifies nutrition so anyone can understand it. You will know exactly what to eat, and when, in order to accomplish any goal you set for yourself. You will also understand how to effectively “cheat” on your nutrition plan with absolutely no guilt.

Tom is one of the most sought-after Nutrition Specialists and Trainers in the Los Angeles area. His goal is to reach as many people as he can to spread his message of fitness and nutrition. “While my achievements are very public and well documented, it is my lesser-known accomplishments that are the most rewarding: helping many people lose over 100 pounds; providing nutritional guidance that can reverse illness and disease; improving quality of life for seniors; sponsoring Olympic and Paralympic Athletes; and, of course, the volunteer work that I do,” states Tom Nelson. “These are the things that make my job and life interesting, challenging, fun and rewarding!”
