Share This!©DisneyWith all the changes occurring at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, The Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge have officially been renamed. The Villas are now called Boulder Ridge Villas at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge. This was done to more accurately reflect that infamous railroad theming that Guests can experience when visiting. (Like the Carolwood Pacific Room, where you can see two railroad cars that once ran around Walt Disney’s backyard.)Establishing the Boulder Ridge Villas name is part of a project to expand the Disney Vacation Club presence at the resort, with the upcoming Copper Creek Villas and Cabins expected to open in 2017.Stay tuned for more info about the changes occurring at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge!Save
When you’re good at what you do, you don’t typically spend a whole lot of time thinking about what your next job might be or the next company you might work for, let alone the need to construct a better resume. In our work lives, we challenge ourselves to succeed and excel, and make the sacrifices necessary to set ourselves apart. We focus our efforts on building a future; working hard, working smart, and making the right decisions. We see this as the key to our professional development plan. But sound decisions aren’t limited to what we do on the job. What we do beyond the workplace can have a real and vital impact on how our careers unfold.Serving as the gateway to a professional development plan, crafting a quality resume can be one of the most important tasks in your professional career. Unfortunately, it also happens to be one of the most underrated and under-used aspects of professional growth for far too many of us.This is a place where we summarize our experience, our abilities, and our accomplishments. But that alone isn’t enough. To best serve our needs, we have to recognize—and mobilize—the ultimate purpose of the resume. This isn’t intended to be a book report on what you’ve done or the positions you’ve held during your career. It’s not just a snapshot of who you are today. It also must serve as a beacon that leads the reader towards what you’re capable of doing in the future.- Sponsor – The job interviewer isn’t simply interested in what you’ve done or how much you’ve accomplished—other than how that applies to the position that they are looking to fill. What we’ve done in the past has to be seen as an indicator of future performance, and how that information is presented can make a tremendous difference in the way that we are perceived.The resume has to be more than an accumulation of dates and facts. It has to tell a story. It has to grab attention. It has to send a message. But it also has to be honest and genuine. It should be dynamic and confident. It should be organized and concise. It should show the building blocks of your career. It should help you stand out, and stand tall. This document is intended to represent who you are as a professional. It is a point of first impression. As such, it demands your effort and attention to ensure that it fills that role.Every job search is a competition. A company is trying to match their needs with an individual that will best meet all of the different aspects that a particular position entails. Those involved in hiring decisions typically begin the search process by narrowing down the field of potential candidates from among those that have applied. Various strategies may be used to assist decision makers in the process, but one common denominator almost always comes into play – the resume.The resume is a visual and informational representation of the candidate throughout the hiring process. It is a gateway to a successful professional development plan. From entry level positions to the pyramid heads for some of our largest companies, this remains a constant. If we want to set ourselves apart from the pack, then our efforts should start here.For more information on loss prevention careers, visit www.lpjobs.com.

They show the problem that comes when fleshing out ideas then go directly into a demo of how the product work and fits with Google Apps Marketplace. ConclusionThe vendors that created videos for Google Apps Marketplace deserve some credit for at least taking advantage of the YouTube channel. But what is it about trying to be cute? Some of these videos are like advertisements. That can be fine and well for a blog or for an event but it seems like a lost opportunity for a YouTube channel on Google Apps Marketplace. The Google Apps Marketplace has launched a YouTube channel to promote its third-party partners. Less than a third of the vendors have posted videos to the YouTube channel. Google Apps is not rocket science but the idea of integrating third-party applications into Google Apps is a new concept for most customers. The YouTube channel will by no means make an app successful. But it does provide a channel to explain what the product does and how it fits with Google Apps Marketplace. And the video can be used in different channels, too, such as on a blog or Facebook.So far, the YouTube channel includes 16 videos. Overall, 60 vendors are now part of the Google Apps Marketplace. Some of the videos are pretty professional, done in the Common Craft vein. But surprisingly, many are pretty mediocre, telling us little about the products and how they integrate with Google Apps Marketplace. Others tell too much about how the product works, not providing a clear value statement about the integration.Of the videos on the YouTube channel, Aviary is one of our favorites.

This option is the second shortest route of the three considered, meets provincial design and safety requirements, and includes a longer bridge at the Cache Creek crossing.Hydro said that compared to the two other options that were considered, the selected route:has similar or lower impacts to archaeological and heritage sites, andhas lower impacts to private lands and agricultural lands than the most northern route evaluated.BC Hydro will be continuing work for this portion of the realignment, including geotechnical investigations and drilling. Full construction on this segment of the highway realignment is expected to be underway by 2020.Hydro said that construction activities for the western four kilometres of the highway realignment at Cache Creek/Bear Flat, which is not affected by the alternate realignment options that were studied for the eastern section of this segment, will begin at the end of this month. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – BC Hydro announced Tuesday that it has selected a new realignment for Highway 29 in the Cache Creek/Bear Flat area, following consultations with Indigenous groups and local property owners.Premier John Horgan announced that the provincial government was proceeding with building Site C following a review by the B.C. Utilities Commission last December.That same month. the Province asked Hydro and the Ministry of Transportation to work with Treaty 8 First Nations and local property owners to redesign the Highway 29 realignment at Cache Creek/Bear Flat to reduce the effects on potential burial sites and areas of cultural importance identified by First Nations. In January, Hydro said it began engaging with Indigenous groups and property owners to share information and get feedback on two alternate realignment options. Indigenous groups and property owners were provided with the draft evaluation criteria that would be used for selecting a new realignment and were invited to comment on the criteria.A third realignment option was developed in early March as a result of the consultation process and became one of the realignment options that BC Hydro assessed.A higher-resolution map of the realignment can be found here: https://www.sitecproject.com/sites/default/files/highway-29-realignment-options-map.pdf.Hydro said that several Indigenous groups conducted ground-truthing investigations and reported on their findings over the spring and summer.In late July, BC Hydro said it met with five Indigenous groups and seven property owners to share and seek feedback on the preliminary findings of the investigations and evaluation criteria.The selected realignment option – which was developed through consultation – is located north of the original route and is approximately 240 metres away from a potential burial site and 370 metres from an area identified to be of cultural importance.
Coming off three starts as a true freshman, sophomore outside linebacker Ryan Shazier enters his second season firmly entrenched as a starter on the Ohio State football team’s defense.Shazier is one of many young linebackers who will play for the Buckeyes this season. Along with middle linebacker Curtis Grant, Shazier is one of two starting sophomore linebackers, while four of the seven linebackers listed on Monday’s depth chart are freshmen.First-year coach Urban Meyer admitted that Shazier is “real young,” but he has high expectations for him.“I’m biased because I love the guy,” Meyer said. “His God-given skill level is really high, so our expectation level is an all-Big Ten type player, at some point. He has that skill level.”Shazier’s own expectations are even higher.“One of my goals since I was little was to be an All-American,” Shazier said. “I’m just going to work my butt off to be an All-American or one of the top linebackers in the nation, so I’m just going to keep working hard, being a leader and just try to do the best I can.”Shazier made an immediate impact last season once he cracked the starting lineup. He finished the year with 57 total tackles, five tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and a blocked punt. Meyer said his work ethic is a major factor in his success.“He gives everything he’s got,” Meyer said. “He’s so sincere about what he does.”Shazier said he recognizes that his team will be relying on him more than it did last year, and is ready for the added responsibility.“This year’s a lot different than last year,” Shazier said. “I have to be a leader a lot more than last year. I’m just working on my ability to try and be a lot better than I was, and work on my footwork, my technique and helping the young guys out a lot.”In addition to being a starting outside linebacker in the 4-3 defensive scheme, the Buckeyes’ base alignment, defensive coordinator Everett Withers said Shazier will also start in the team’s nickel defensive package, along with senior linebacker Etienne Sabino.Withers said the nickel package will be a very important aspect of the team’s defense this year.“I think we’ll be in (the nickel defense) a fair amount,” Withers said. “The offense, at times, dictates how much nickel you play.”In the base defense, Withers said Grant will be the “quarterback” and lead play-caller of the defense, but with Grant off the field in the nickel package, some of that responsibility might shift to Shazier.Shazier addressed the possibility of having to assume that leadership responsibility.“It’s going to be important for me to make a lot of play calls in the nickel and everything, but we also have Sabino, so he’s going to help me out,” Shazier said. “I feel that my role is going to be about the same (in the nickel) as it is in (the base defense). I’m just going to have (to) come in, help make tackles, help lead the defense and just stop the offense from scoring and stop them from gaining yards and getting the offense in great field position.”While Meyer inherited Shazier as a player on the roster when he was hired at OSU, Shazier had been on Meyer’s radar long before either became a Buckeye. Meyer recruited Shazier, a native of Plantation, Fla., while he was still the head coach at the University of Florida.“I’ve known him for several years now, because I recruited him when I was at Florida,” Meyer said. “You can’t help but like Ryan Shazier.”Shazier said that Meyer’s name was “legendary” while he was still a high school recruit in Florida, but playing for Meyer has opened up his eyes to a different side of the famous coach.“He’s intense when he’s recruiting you, but when it’s on the field, he’s another level, He doesn’t play around,” Shazier said. “He’s really serious, and I really like it about him, but he’s really intense and he’s really going to push us to the next level.”
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is happy with his team’s response after they beat Blackburn 3-2 in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.Eddie Howe made nine changes to his starting XI on Tuesday, following his team’s 4-0 drubbing at Burnley. And the Cherries responded well with a victory thanks to a late goal from Callum Wilson.“We desperately needed a performance tonight after the Burnley game, of course, we needed a reaction,” he said.“You feel better but still Burnley is not far away in my thoughts. That’s just how I am and until we put that right in the Premier League that will still be with me.”Eddie Howe pleased with attacking poise, but feels Wilson was too honest Stuart Heath – August 25, 2019 A.F.C Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe felt as though his striker Callum Wilson was too honest against Manchester City and may have won a penalty,…He added: “I’d say (tonight) 90 percent was positive. I thought we played some good football and then suddenly bang, bang, we concede two goals.“Only we could do that to ourselves. We shot ourselves in the foot twice, made some bad decisions and then it’s in the balance.“And then you’re thinking the lottery of a penalty shoot-out was going to be the outcome of the game and it should never have been in that position.“But credit the players again because we get ourselves in these positions and sometimes we get out of that hole we’re in because of our attitude, because of our spirit.”
Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton believes that their biggest challenge in 2019 will be trying to avoid complacency.Brighton are sitting comfortably in 13th place in the Premier League table after amassing 25 points from 20 matches so far.But Chris Hughton has stressed the need to maintain their level of play as the second half of the season starts.“The biggest challenge is always complacency – in every game, we played in this division we are faced with tough opposition and that’s a reminder each week that if we don’t reach a level we can get punished,” Hughton told the club’s official website.“That’s always there for us, we’re still in our second season in this division and our aim is to maintain our status in the league and develop and grow as a club.Pep Guardiola: “Aymeric Laporte’s injury doesn’t look good” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Aymeric Laporte’s injury “does not look good” and fears the defender will be out for a long time.“We’ve worked very hard to be where we are now, and we have to be respectful that every single game we play is a difficult one – there’ll be bigger and more experienced teams than us that will find it difficult – there are reminders every week in this league about that.”“My feeling is that we have to continue in the same mentality, the gap between ourselves and the bottom three will always be the most important thing for quite some time to develop as a team.”
