on Sep 30, 2015 in Business

Fall brings plenty of welcome changes, a new school year, cooler temperatures, and the beginning of the Holiday season. However, to the dismay of many fall also brings rain fall, snow, ice, and the resulting need to winterize your home for the months ahead. Winterization is the process of preparing your home for the freezing temperatures that the winter will bring and includes but is not limited to reinsulating your attic, tuning up your furnace, and cleaning your gutters. While seasonal maintenance is a must for homeowners throughout the United States, winterization is essential for homeowners in the Northeast and Midatlantic because of the regions susceptibility to tumultuous weather patterns. With fall in full swing, and winter fast approaching, now is the perfect time for seasonal gutter maintenance, repair, and replacement. While gutter maintenance can be done by homeowners, it is dangerous and should almost always be done by a licensed contractor or gutter company. In addition to being an exceptional window company, Thompson Creek is one of the largest gutter companies in Maryland.

How to be a Leader at Work

on Sep 21, 2015 in Business

Being a leader at work is just the same as being a leader at any other place and time in life. Nels Olson from Korn Ferry knows there are certain qualities that leaders must possess. In general, they are going to have to work a lot harder than those around them and be willing to put in the time to develop a deeper understanding of the things that are going on around them than others they work with. This is due to the fact that people who want to take on leadership roles must go above and beyond the call of duty, otherwise they will not possess the knowledge to lead others. There are certain individuals who are born with leadership qualities, but this is not everything when it comes to being a great leader. Leaders are developed through hard work, although it does not hurt to have an outgoing personality and to have great people skills as well. Many people think that you have to be incredibly intelligent in order to be in a leadership position at work, the reality is one of the biggest aspects is a person’s ability to not only get along with people, but to help others get along with each other in a work environment. A ton of people are very smart and absolutely possess the intelligence to run a leadership role in the work place, but they lack in the people skills department, making them unfit for that type of role. You can take a look at just about any field and see the vast amount of people that try to step up into leadership roles and it is pretty apparent who is effective and who is not. Take the majority of politics that live in the DC area. Those that appeal to the public and do not say and do things that offend the bulk of the population get a lot more recognition and go a lot further in their political fields. Those that do not know how to act out in public and when they are being interviewed may come off badly to the public and as a result they will not go very far. All of this is relative and it really comes down to an individual’s ability to work with others if they want to take on a leadership role at work. If a person wants to take on this type of position, they better work on themselves internally...

Pandora Media Jumps After Preliminary Decision on Royalties

on Sep 21, 2015 in Business

From Bloomberg.com: Pandora Media Inc. rose as much as 15 percent after a top U.S. official said rate-setting judges could consider the Internet radio company’s agreement with small music labels. Register of Copyrights Maria Pallante in an opinion backed Pandora’s position in a case setting rates for 2016 through 2020, and due to conclude in December. Pallante’s opinion dated Sept. 18 was e-mailed Monday by the rate-setting Copyright Royalty Board. The stock jumped 5.8 percent to $20.84 at 12:53 p.m. in New York after rising to $22.60 for the biggest intraday increase in almost a year. Through Friday, the shares were up 10 percent this year. Pandora Media has been battling record labels and other rights holders over how much it pays to play music. The ruling means Pandora can propose a lower rate based on an earlier deal as evidence of what a fair market value rate is, said Michael Pachter, an analyst with Wedbush Securities Inc. Pallante agreed with Pandora that judges can consider its deal with Merlin, a global rights agency that represents more than 20,000 independent music labels and distributors. Pandora says those rates are reasonable and should be a benchmark. SoundExchange, the nonprofit that collects digital performance royalties and distributes them to artists, had argued the judges shouldn’t take into account the Merlin deal. Read the full article...
