Detroit, Michigan (PRWEB) May 21, 2013
SportsFanPlayground.com will begin to announce many of its Black Friday deals on its Facebook and Twitter pages, the company announced on Thursday.
The company, which has become a leading marketplace for sporting goods, video games, consoles and accessories for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Nintendo Wii U and other top brands, as well as a place for deals on appliances, TVs, IT solutions and more, has begun an extensive campaign that encourages users to “like” their Facebook page for deal information, follow the company on its Twitter page, and also follow the store on Pinterest and LinkedIn to get timely updates on the many markdowns the store will be offering during the holiday season.
“Our data collecting has shown that more and more people will do much of their shopping based on ideas from their favorite social media platforms, so as a small company, we have to be proactive with getting deals out in front of the masses,” says DaVaughn Lucas, the owner of SportsFanPlayground.com. “The name of the game is being ahead of the curve and developing a stronger brand on social media only helps accelerate our brand.”
SportsFanPlayground.com has various markdowns in the store for the early Black Friday & Cyber Monday sale, including –
Markdowns on various iPhones, including the 3G, 4, 4S and the newest iPhone 5 models
Xbox 360 accessories for as low as 1 cent
Deals on many Samsung, Sony, Vizio, and Sharp LED TV and LCD TV sets
During the sale, the store has expanded their brand to carry clothing, jewelry and grocery store items. Many of the deals on those items will not only be announced on Facebook and Twitter, but will have a heavy impact on Pinterest and LinkedIn. Because of the difference in the overall niche of the added items, Lucas felt it was important to directly target the major social engines that cater to those niches to establish the broader brand.
“During the holiday season, the key is to be broad across as many platforms as possible. Many people do not want to have to shop all over the city (or internet) for their items if time is an issue.” says Lucas. “If your brand is accessible to everyone in some way, that will be the key to having overall success and recognition for the future.”

A mechanical fortune teller that spouts cryptic tweets, a collaborative online paint canvas, webcam stars posed as iconic artworks, and other works will enliven Internet Week New York Headquarters at Chelseas Metropolitan Pavilion as part of an interactive art group show curated by Eyebeam Art + Technology Center.

Other works, including #Fortune and persecuting.us, re-envision Twitter, one using it as a source of anonymous wisdom, the other to highlight political polarization. Other works explore digital anonymity, the collaborative process, and the possible dystopia that could emerge from our corporatized, commercialized culture.
The group show is curated by Eyebeam, a nonprofit incubator that has been bringing artists and creative technologists together since 1997 to address the cultural impact of technology. It will be open daily from May 20th to May 23rd from 9AM to 6PM at Internet Week New York Headquarters.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
The author, former TV reporter/talk show host W.G. Buzz Luttrell, says, I hope to make readers (especially young students) want to learn much more about the subject. This little illustrated booklet, What the World Should Know About Black History in the USA, links early, sometimes little-known, civil rights heroes and martyrs (Black and White) to modern-day Black success stories from Oprah Winfrey and Condoleezza Rice, to Colin Powell and Ice Tea.
The copy, he states, is intended to spawn images that are hard to forget and very difficult to ignore. How many know, for examples, that: a Black explorer discovered Arizona and New Mexico; a Black Doctor did the first successful heart operation; the first Kentucky Derby triple winner was Black?
Who was the first Black to star in an opening night production with the Metropolitan Opera; serve as a federal judge; or represent the U.S. as ambassador to a foreign country? Who were some of the Whites killed for supporting the abolition of slavery, or who risked their lives to teach the newly freed slaves to read right after Emancipation?
The author says, I was appalled to hear from many students that so little about the contributions of Black Americans in the building of this country, and Whites who bravely supported abolition is included in todays U.S. history books; not integrated as a natural part of our countrys history, but crammed into Black History Month – February.
Luttrell feels many people around the world have a distorted view of Black Americans as either rich athletes and entertainers, or (as implied and encouraged by the racially biased) just lazy and unmotivated takers choosing to live off government welfare programs.
If eBook reviews generate sufficient interest and sales Luttrell plans an on-line fund-raiser where donors can give the book to under-funded schools of their choice. The book is currently available exclusively as an eBook (see website/blog/$ 2.99), but will be offered in audiobook, ($ 5.99) and print ($ 7.99) formats if the eBook campaign is successful.
Published by eBookIt.com, this eBook(let) is a revised and updated Black history educational supplement the author first wrote for a PR client in 1969, Black Americas Echoes Of The Past. Packed with nuggets of little-known facts, he feels it can serve a broad range of needs: teachers can have students expand the booklets brief profiles to enrich every period of U.S. history; White business people, meeting with important Black clients, prospects or associates can quickly learn enough to put themselves more at ease in mixed company; and everyone can use the colorful printed booklet as a coffee table conversation piece, and an important symbol of interest in a subject, open discussion of which, many feel is vitally important to improved future race relations in this country and around the world.

Union, New Jersey (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Despite the ever-increasing demands placed upon businesses to adapt and evolve in response to current economic conditions, many employers are still well behind the times when it comes to proper hiring practices and procedures. With the passage of California’s commission contract law, AB 1396, which took effect at the beginning of the year, and recent warnings from New York’s Department of Labor, employers are increasingly discovering the negative consequences of non-compliance.
One of the more common mistakes that continue to be made by employers (particularly startups and small businesses) involves their failure to develop a basic set of documents governing the employment relationship with new hires. At a minimum, these documents must include an offer letter outlining the basics of the position, compensation and benefits, a policy governing intellectual property, confidentiality and competition, and an employee handbook or policy binder detailing company practices and procedures, including workplace privacy and social media policies. For businesses whose sales force is primarily commission-based, a commission plan is also necessary. Such employment documents can be developed in a very cost-effective manner and no employer can afford to build a business without them.
Indeed, the consequences of failing to develop employment-hiring materials can be devastating. Without appropriate intellectual property and confidentiality protections in place, says OlenderFeldman LLP’s Howard Matalon, businesses will find themselves without any means of protecting their most sensitive business information and trade secrets from literally walking out the door with a departing employee. Such protections must be coupled with a narrowly tailored non-competition agreement that prohibits employees who previously enjoyed regular access to confidential business information from being able to utilize that information upon termination for personal gain or for the benefit of competitors. National business journals are routinely filled with examples of employers suffering millions of dollars in damages as a result of the failure to protect their most valuable assets from employee defections. Similarly, failure to implement appropriate social media policies can leave your business exposed to reputational harm.
Employment-hiring documentation can also serve as excellent protection from employee lawsuits related to compensation. Many states, including New York and California, require employers to place in writing all of the compensation terms and conditions for new hires. New York is particularly demanding on written wage notification. All New York employees are entitled each year to written notice of wage rates detailing the manner in which they are to be paid. In addition, all commission agreements must be in a writing signed by both the employer and the employee specifying how wages, salary and commissions are earned and calculated (particularly if a recoverable draw is involved), as well the payment of wages on termination of employment as to any earned compensation.
In fact, the New York Department of Labor recently cautioned employers that in the event of a dispute over the terms of commission-based wages where the terms of the commission agreement are not in writing, the employer will be presumed to have agreed to the terms of employment as presented by the commission salesperson. Such a presumption can be extremely costly for an employer given that the salesperson may overstate the commissions owed and the NYDOL can tack on significant fines and penalties as part of its findings with respect to any unpaid commissions (including up to 25% of the wages owed, which is routinely imposed). The NYDOLs decision may serve as precedent to be followed by labor agencies and departments across the country.
For these reasons, all employers must take a methodical approach to their hiring practices and procedures and treat these processes as seriously as they would every other critical aspect of their business.
To discuss employment hiring practices for your business, please feel free to contact Howard A. Matalon, Esq., by phone at 908-964-2424 or by email at hmatalon(at)olenderfeldman(dot)com.
