The Job Auction

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, US, December 5, 2018 / — As a global brand, The Job Auction knows the importance of freedom and maximising the potential of each of its users and clients when it comes to finding gainful employment is the sole focus. Anticipating the needs of those who choose to use it is what a site like The Job Auction does best.

At its core, it is a jobs board, an online marketplace to barter for work and make connections with other professionals. The Job Auction can be used to host any number of positions from every industry imaginable. You will find what you want as long as you know what you want.

The site provides freedom for its users to achieve in any sense they want. The platform is there to make sure that any limits are set only by the users themselves. The role of the auctioneer is, in a sense, rendered pointless on this platform. There is no mediating force that tells you what you can and cannot bid for or accept. It’s all down to you.

Posting listings for tasks or even advertising your own skills are free for the first two weeks and the packages you can pick are made specifically to cater for the needs of everyone economically. Non-profits can list themselves and whichever tasks or jobs they would like for free, now and forever because The Job Auction doesn’t believe in making a profit out of non-profits.

The levels of influence and therefore aid you can get from The Job Auction team is entirely up to you, meaning freedom to achieve is on offer as is freedom from constraints.

The CV Clinic, a place where you can have a team of experts advise you on how to tweak your CV for public consumption and the blog and its multiple articles on every nook and cranny of the jobs market are there for any advice you might need before venturing off into the world of job auctioning.

The way TJA defines its options is also a critical component to its success. The options of ‘Tasks’ and ‘Skill Auction’ make it so the pathways are widened and what constitutes work is entirely up to the user. The other users can then bid on the auction. The prime selling point of the platform is that with an auction nobody goes any higher or any lower than they are willing to go. Nobody is strong-armed into doing something they wouldn’t otherwise do.

Just like a regular jobs site, employers can fix the rate at which they are willing to pay and as such the functions users are used to can be put in place in the concept of auctions aren’t to their liking. In a sense, The JA has everything you could need from a jobs board. It bestows power ergo freedom to the users if that’s what they choose and if not they can use its more traditional settings.

Daruma Tech Lands Contract to Create New Tri-Rail App for South Florida Regional Transit Authority

South Florida Regional Transit Authority

Tri-Rail passengers will soon be able to navigate their traveling experience with a new, innovative Smart Phone app.

Our goal is to create an attractive, intuitive app that’s easy and fun to use and gives users a personalized experience”

— Susan Erickson

BOCA RATON, FL, UNITED STATES, December 5, 2018 / — Boca Raton-based software developer Daruma Tech has been chosen by the South Florida Regional Transit Authority (SFRTA) to develop a new mobile app for passengers of the regional light rail system Tri-Rail. The app, which will be available for both IOS and Android users, will allow Tri-Rail passengers to plan their trips, calculate their fares, and track train locations in real time. The app will also provide estimated arrival times, station information, and descriptions of points of interest at certain stops.

Daruma Tech will also provide SFRTA ongoing, as-needed support for app upgrades and updates.

“Our goal is to create an attractive, intuitive app that’s easy and fun to use and gives users a personalized experience,” said Susan Erickson of Daruma Tech. Erickson added that SFRTA was seeking to replace their existing app with a faster, more engaging version that better takes advantage of recent advances in mobile technology.

Erickson also noted that Daruma Tech was an especially good fit for the SFRTA’s needs because of its proven track record of working with governmental agencies and their financial, budgetary, and logistical constraints. Among the public entities that have entrusted Daruma Tech with their digital projects are the Broward Metropolitan Planning Organization, whose website was designed and continues to be maintained by Daruma Tech; and Broward County, which commissioned Daruma Tech to build an informational website promoting the 2016 “A Penny At Work” ballot initiative. Daruma Tech has also worked with the publicly funded Washington State Beer Commission to develop both mobile and kiosk apps that help consumers discover the state’s many craft breweries.

In addition, Daruma Tech has extensive experience with public-private partnerships, such as its collaboration with Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and the Museum of Discovery and Science in Fort Lauderdale on their APP-titude program, in which high school students earn college credit while learning to design and program assets for the museum’s free mobile app.

Daruma Tech is a privately held software design firm based in the Research Park at Florida Atlantic University® in Boca Raton, Florida. Its mission is to serve businesses across a range of industries with innovative software applications incorporating both cutting-edge technology and designs focused on the unique logistical and human needs of each client.

Canadians in Cambodia providing water wells through income from Yoga

since majority of our founders have backgrounds in humanitarian work we realised instead of profiting from Yoga we could share the gift of life, which is clean water”

— Valentina Lyubiteleva


Providing water wells through income from Yoga

SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA – DECEMBER 5, 2018 – Tavoos Yoga Cafe & Wellness Center in Cambodia, a Canadian owned non-profit social venture which returns all of its profits back into the local community has reached a new milestone by donating its 25th water well in the first year of operation. This comes only two days after being announced as the number one Yoga teacher training school in the world by Luxury Travel Diary.

Tavoos Yoga is the only Yoga Alliance® Registered school in Cambodia and was founded for one purpose only; to share the gift of wellness. Since Tavoos opened its doors exactly one year ago, it has provided to date 25 water wells in communities all over Cambodia. Furthermore providing scholarships to Khmer women and men who aspire to become Yoga Alliance® certified teachers, as well as free Yoga classes daily to anyone who wishes to come by.

Founded by a group of independent philanthropists from Canada and Netherlands, Tavoos Yoga was started after its founders realised the impact wellness tourism has in developing countries.

“We saw the influx of cash coming into the country as a result of wellness tourism, and since majority of our founders all have a background in humanitarian work we realised that instead of profiting from Yoga retreats and Yoga teacher training courses, we could share the gift of life, which is clean water, through Yoga. The genuine beliefs of Yogis is to be kind and give back, this is what we do.” Says co-founder Valentina Lyubiteleva.
“We didn’t think it was fair that all of us who are privileged with disposable income and the freedom to travel get to visit these exotic countries to practice Yoga, while the locals stand by and look at us walking through their communities carrying our mats. We decided, since they are sharing their beautiful culture and land with us, it is only our duty to give back to them and empower them. This is why aside from donating our income to our water project, we also donate spots in our teacher training program to Khmer national and after we certify them they are offered a job. Wellness is a gift which should be shared, not a privilege to only those who can afford it. That is our motto.”

Most notably is that Tavoos Yoga’s entire administrative backbone, as well as legal, marketing and technical departments are operated by its founders who donate their services. No salaries are taken by the founders or board of directors from Canada or Netherlands, leaving more funds for the humanitarian work that Tavoos does, as well as fair wages for local Cambodian staff.

Tavoos Yoga has recently announced its Yoga Alliance® 200hr teacher training course dates for 2019.

Struggling to beat the bulge? Business travel is to blame as over a third of UK workers

Whether it’s a latte on the train or a three-course meal, business travel spells bad news for your health, according to new research by aparthotel group Roomzzz

LONDON , UNITED KINGDOM, December 3, 2018 / — Struggling to beat the bulge? Business travel could be to blame, with over a third of UK workers who travel regularly claim healthy eating goes out of the window

Whether it’s enjoying a large latte on the train, grabbing a pastry between morning meetings or sitting down to a three-course meal with clients, business travel spells bad news for the usual healthy eating habits of UK workers, according to new research by boutique aparthotel group Roomzzz.

The recent study of 1000 UK workers who regularly travel with their job claimed that it was their diet that was worse hit when away from home. In fact 36% of respondents believed it was the aspect that suffered the most during time away, with disruptions to sleep patterns coming a close second, with 33% of those questioned saying a super comfy bed was at the top of their wish list when it comes to choosing a room for the night.

Extra snacks and blow-out meals quickly rack up the calories, in fact 58% of the regular travellers questioned believed they easily consumed anywhere between 250 and a whopping 1500 extra calories each day, compared to a normal working day – potentially 50% over the recommended daily calorie intake for men and women. In fact, out of the 1000 respondents questioned, it was North West workers who admitted splurging the most during business trips.

Naveen Ahmed, Managing Director at Roomzzz says: “Travelling with work can mean a major disruption to your usual daily routine. Staying in a traditional hotel often means that you are often forced to eat out and have a lonely table for one, when all you want to do is get a take-away or prepare a healthy, home-cooked meal, put on your PJs and enjoy some down time in the comfort of your own room. At Roomzzz we encourage our guests to use the room as they would their own home; we offer a kitchen and living area as standard, giving guests the space to spread out and relax and certainly no need to sneak food or drink into our properties! So many of our guests tell us they love the space and additional living areas, which means they don’t have to work ‘in bed’ with their laptops on their laps, which allows them to keep a bit of normality while away, whether that’s preparing their own meals, doing some yoga in the living area or simply chilling out on the sofa after a hectic day.”

Jo Cox, a frequent traveller says about her time staying in hotels: “I used to stay away about three nights a week in hotels up and down the country and I would crave simple foods. It got so bad that one night I went down to the kitchen with a tin of beans and some bread and asked them to cook me some beans on toast! I was so fed up of eating out on my own or having the same choices from the room service menu.”

Naveen adds: “Business travel is tiring – for the mind and body, so it’s not surprising that those questioned ranked a super comfy bed as an important feature of their room. We pride ourselves on offering the best beds in the market…so much so our guests often ask us where they can buy one for their own home!”

Roomzzz pioneered the Aparthotel concept launching its first development in 2006 in Leeds. Now with a growing portfolio of nine aparthotels, ideally positioned in some of the UK’s most vibrant cities, including Manchester, Leeds, London, Chester and Nottingham the brand has ambitious growth plans with further developments in the pipeline for Edinburgh, Harrogate and York.

Roomzzz is not a hotel, it’s not a flat but instead it’s smack bang in the middle of them both.

Jim Peak of Peak Type and Transition to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

HOOVER, ALABAMA, UNITED STATES, December 3, 2018 / — Retirement is not an ending, but a new beginning, the start of a new life journey. The question is not, “What do I do in retirement?” but rather “What do I do with my retirement?”

10,000 Baby Boomers are retiring every day. Some of these people will live longer in retirement than they did in their work career. So if you're not planning for retirement, it can really take you by surprise.

Jim Peak is an executive coach, author, speaker and the founder of Peak Type and Transition where he specializes in helping individuals navigate transition and change, specifically in the area of retirement.

Originally a civil engineer, Peak discovered that he enjoyed the ‘civil’ (working with people) part of his job much more than the ‘engineering’ technical part.

"As a ‘civil’ engineer, much of my efforts focused on meeting the needs and improving the quality of life for people,” says Peak. “I learned that understanding relationships is the key to accomplish anything great. But in addition to relationships, I discovered that an important factor in success is how well we can navigate transitions and change. I am passionate about helping people understand themselves and others as they navigate through life transitional experiences.”

In major life transitions such as retirement, Peak first pulls directly from knowledge gained from his diverse assignments in his forty-year career as an Army civilian. Peak observed that each person approaches change and readjustment uniquely, based on his or her own personality. As a certified administrator of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator®, Peak often relies on that long-established tool to examine his client’s preferences shaped by their personality. After researching and linking personality preferences over many years, Peak co-authored a book in 2011 entitled “Introduction to Type and Reintegration – A Framework for Managing the Transition Home” that targeted service members returning from deployments.

Upon entering his own retirement in 2015, Peak observed that the transition from work to retirement involved much more than just being prepared financially. Retirement often represents a whole new change in lifestyle with countless options to pursue. In the new retirements of today, it’s very easy to end up ‘busier’ than you were at work.

“At work you were pretty much focused on one direction: you had your day planned out and scheduled,” says Peak. “In retirement, you have to think about how you're going to replace those eight hours a day and you can literally choose from 12 different areas on any given day. But what do you really want to do with the rest of your life?”

During Peak’s retirement transition, he discovered a valuable tool that was helpful in fleshing out his retirement interests and goals. Through advanced training he received certification to use the tool to coach others as well. The retirement diagnostic tool that Peak prefers to use is the Retirement Success Profile (RSP) offered by Retirement Options, a division of Career Partners International, LLC.

Through a comprehensive series of questions, the RSP tool gives you a picture of your overall level of readiness for personal change and retirement. The RSP does this by (1) comparing your own scores on 15 retirement success factors to others like yourself who have taken the RSP, and (2) comparing your own present behavior scores to what you might expect in your ideal retirement.

The 15 measured factors of the RSP are: Work Reorientation, Attitude Toward Retirement, Directness, Health Perception, Financial Security & Planning, Current Life Satisfaction, Projected Life Satisfaction, Life Meaning, Leisure Interests, Adaptability, Life Stage Satisfaction, Dependents, Family & Relationship Issues, Perception of Age, and Replacement of Work Functions.

“Retirement doesn’t have to be scary. A retirement coach can take some of the ‘unknown factor’ out of retirement and give their clients increased confidence to move forward into this next new and meaningful chapter of their lives!”

CUTV News Radio will feature Jim Peak in an interview with Jim Masters on December 5th at 11am EST.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.
