Make best use of Online Banking and stop wasting time

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 2018-Sep-26 — /EPR CONSUMER NEWS/ — Most of the systems we are already used to, we do not know how they work, for we are always thinking we know enough that they work and we trust them. But honestly, do you think you know enough about online banking? Here you will find some facts that might be useful for you to know!

Here you will find useful information you will better have on mind, and also excellent reasons for using online banking services and some advices for being always safe and security.

Sometimes if your internet connection is not that good, it might be hard for you to access to your bank through your conventional online banking portal, so these online banking apps and services might help you to access in an easier, lighter and safer way anytime you need!

Online Banking – When and how did it start working?
Did you know it? The first online banking systems that gave origin of the ones you use today EVERYDAY were introduced in the early 1980s in New York when four of the national banks started offering the revolutionary home banking services, allowing the clients and small businesses to have a quick online banking check.

On the same way, the online banking started also on the United Kingdom around those years when the Scotland Bank and the Nottingham Building Society provided the Homelink service for giving their users the opportunity of viewing bank moves on a computer.

But it was only until 1994 that the banks around the entire globe started using the internet for posting their advertises, and then in 1995 they started offering to the clients the possibility of managing their money online through a home computer, and this came to be the online banking of nowadays.

The greatest benefits of using the Online Banking
As everyone knows the major benefits of using online banking are mainly two: security and comfort. With the online banking services you can make all your money-related operations without needing cash or personally going to the bank.

Paying your services with no delay
These services might help you regardless of your bank, they will help you to manage all your bank moves for having an easy, confortable, secure and practical administration of your money, you can make routine pays like paying electricity, water and gas services without losing any time of your day.

Your pays to third ones can also be made much easier with these online banking services, for they will offer you an easy platform where you can quickly see and control your bank accounts.

Manage all your accounts and save your time and money
These services might also help you if you manage more than one bank account, so you can control your money in any of them more easily and in a more ordered way. You do not need to waste any passage fees anymore if you do not live close to any bank, you can make all your processes from your home computer or even with your Smartphone.

It is really easy to look by yourself if you prefer right now, on Google Play Store for these apps for the one you prefer the most, we just advice you to read enough about each app of services and be aware of the reviews to know if it is safe and if it has the functions you need.

Most of these online banking services also have apps you can download for always having a control of your money in your pocket. You can pay the balance of your telephones, your internet service and the rent of your home (if you have to) through online banking.

Risks and security advices while using online banking
If you are already an online banking user or you are considering being one, here are some advices to keep security, for there is no infallible system and you can help these to be safer and securer. What you can do is always good for making sure your security and your money’s.

Many online banking services keep you safe with logging you out every time you finish your operations, if you close the app or delay too long in doing something in it, it might close your account for your security, so you better remember always your user name and password.

It is not recommendable to have your password written in a paper or in any digital way inside your phone, always protect your device with a locking pattern, or even better, a password or a PIN code, these last two methods are more efficient and safer than the pattern that could stand marked on the screen of your smartphone.

Install a VPN app for your security
Sometimes when you connect to the public WiFi and start making your bank moves from your smartphone or laptop, there are hackers who are connected to the same network that you are, and they can hack your information even from your online banking accounts, everything you send could be intercepted by them.

The makers of the online banking services and apps nothing can do against that, but you can! There are some programs or apps that are known as VPN. What are the VPN programs and apps? The letters are for Virtual Protected Network, and it makes that all your information is encrypted and it makes it harder to be hacked and intercepted.

If you protect your phone and your laptop with VPN programs, the hackers will have it MUCH harder to intercept your data and force your online banking accounts.

Follow carefully all of these advises and your online banking account, passwords, and information will never be hacked! You can then research by yourself and keep reading for having enough knowledge about the system of online anti-hacking security you are willing to install and make use of.

At this moment me do not recommend you one specific VPN app or program, we just let you know about its existence and we strongly advise you to start researching about them, so you can find exactly the one you need for your phone, or your laptop.

Do not waste any time or disk space on installing a program that is too heavy and has too many features that you do not actually need, just look for the program you do need.

It is also recommendable that you read carefully every contract of terms and conditions and politic privacy of the apps you install and the programs you use in your laptop for applying the online banking services.

Benefits of online banking
If you have no fear to innovate and start tasting the great advantages of adapting to the new technologies, then, you will make good to start trying new systems of online banking like apps and webpages that are quick and easy to access, you will see in your own experience the next benefits:

First of all, you will reduce the time spent in executing financial operations. Only thing you need to do is to be connected to the internet from your home, your office or any mobile web (remember to use VPM systems to protect data), and then you will have all your money in your hand, easily manageable.

Have your bank at the reach of your hand
Make your bank moves from everywhere you are, you can do it from your laptop or your smartphone, only thing you need to do is to have internet access and then you can review your account state, transfer money and pay fees. Usually, these mobile online banking services are free and the only charge you could get is with your mobile company and the kind of plan you have contracted.

You can make more than one banking operation: moves, credit card pays, pay of services, recharge your air time and according to specialists, 20 per cent of people access to online banking through internet through these kind of mobile devices.

Keep the control of everything easily
You can have control of your money and account pays, and then stop losing any more time visiting the bank, with online banking aside of avoiding the printed account states, you can pay your accounts and maintain all your pay registries in only one place and very easy to find. If you prefer, you can also program automatic pays using your credit or debit card, like the pays of your services of water, electricity and telephone.

Stay safe with your money
Security with your operations is supported by your username and your personal unique password (and this is one you can change periodically), and also you have the token, that is a numeric code that changes every 60 seconds, and that you have to introduce to connect to the online banking.

Many online banking methods also work with security images, which are unique and are impossible to be identified or distinguished by a computer, so it cannot be violated with robotic systems.

Roof Crafters Gives Away New Roof

Baton Rouge, Louisiana, 2016-Jun-22 — /EPR CONSUMER NEWS/ — After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

Roof-Crafters-Client baton rouge-450x297

After Roof Crafters gives away new roof, Mid-city homeowner Yolanda White was delighted to hear her leaking roof would get fixed when a team of volunteers from Tulsa, Ok. came to town. Then the news got better.

The project at White’s house changed when Vaughn, an Owens-Corning Platinum Contractor, contacted Magee, another Platinum Preferred installer with Owens Corning, to see if Magee had a “backup crew” available in case inclement weather or other difficulties forced the Tulsa team to return home before the project was complete. Being community minded Roof Crafters gives away new roof by providing all the labor to install the roofing system.

“[Magee] said, ‘Hey, I’ve got a crew that will do the whole thing,’” Vaughn said. Materials were donated by ABC Supply, a nationwide supplier.

White’s one-story home was elevated after the storm, but the roof was not replaced at the time. White has lived in the 50-year old house for 15 years.

Team coordinator Dr. Amy Emerson said the team wanted to help White because she gives so much to others.

“She is an incredible lady who uses her vacation time each year to cook two hot meals for children in the Hollygrove neighborhood, who attend a week-long summer camp,” Emerson said. “It’s fun to see all kinds of people come together to do this project.”

Other activities held in conjunction with the team’s visit included a “Pete the Cat” literacy event, based on the popular children’s series books by Eric Litwin. Free books were provided for children that attended. The churches are co-led by ministers Charles Marsalis and Kirk Garrison.

While the long-standing partnership with the Oklahoma team has made them “family,” White said the focus of the week was on the children and not the adults workers. “Even though it’s just for a few days, the children are getting something they’ll remember for the rest of their lives.”

Through a robust partner program, Direct Connect works with financial institutions, non-profit organizations, associations and software developers to incorporate payment solutions and enhance customer service.

New technology solves digital overload for family memories

OurHive LOGO onlySan Diego, CA, December 14, 2015 — /EPR NETWORK/ — Have you ever had the issue of looking for a specific photo and can’t find it? You thumb scroll endlessly but there’s no effective way to sift through all those photos every time you’re looking for something specific.

OurHive™ is the newest family app that combines patented technology and a private family network to deal with this growing issue of digital overload. The app is now live on Google Play, the App Store and as a Web App at www.GetOurHive.com.

OurHive combines the best features of a photo and video application with a private social network created especially for families. With the OurHive app, family photos and videos can be automatically tagged, organized and instantly shared with only the people you care most about. Once a private Hive is created, family members can upload and share photos and videos with each other using their iPhones, iPads, Android phones, tablets, laptops or desktop computers. All files are archived in high resolution and can be viewed and downloaded anytime.

ourhiveimage

“For many families, life is full of sacred moments that should be treasured and preserved for generations to come,” said Stephen D. Rosen, co-founder and Chief Visionary Officer of OurHive. “Today’s digital world has made sharing information convenient, but too often that sharing is made with impersonal detachment. OurHive is for people who appreciate the special intimacy that comes with sharing special memories.”

Photo and video sharing within mass-market social networks can sometimes be compromised by unauthorized use and manipulation of media. Special attention has been made with OurHive’s cloud interface to ensure the best security. Photos and videos are encrypted every step in the journey from devices to OurHive servers and back again, and the content can only be accessed by invited, password-protected members.

Because archiving and tracking family photo albums is important, the OurHive app was designed to make tagging and organization simple and accessible. Every photo and video you take with the iOS or Android app ‘automagically’ adds a caption and location from your calendar, along with the closest address when GPS is enabled. You can then edit the filename, add tags and captions and give your photos the same context that writing on the back in ink used to for print photographs.

“Whether it’s your child’s first birthday or grandma’s retirement party, OurHive encourages the family to share all of the pictures and videos they take — not just a few chosen ones that you put on Facebook or Instagram,” said Jeff Symon, co-founder and president. “With OurHive, anyone in your Hive can download any picture they want from any of their internet-connected devices. No more having to remember to text or email individual photos later.”

How OurHive Works

Starting your own Hive begins with one family member starting a free 20GB Family Hive by visiting GetOurHive.com or downloading the “OurHive” app on Google Play and the App Store. They can then invite as many family members or close friends as they want into their secure, private Hive. Each user can then download the free app on the iOS or Android device of their choice and start contributing and sharing family memories.

OurHive™ automatically stores your photos and videos in high resolution in your own private network. Anyone in your family Hive can download anytime they want and future updates will allow for even more functionality.

Leading Personal Property Evaluation Expert Allan Baitcher Provides Aon Insurance Wealth Managers the Tools for Success

The United States’ most recognized appraisal expert, Allan Baitcher, was recently the keynote speaker at an Aon Insurance corporate meeting. At the conference, Mr. Baitcher spoke to wealth management experts about a bank of portfolio strategies, including how wealth managers can provide assistance to clients with artwork or collectibles.

Mr. Baitcher encouraged Aon Insurance’s wealth management experts to maintain current appraisals, as well as to keep their clients’ insured valuables as part of a photographic inventory. “Specifically, items having a value of over $5,000 should be individually appraised and updated on a regular basis,” Mr. Baitcher encouraged. Since market trends are on the rise for antiques, art, and collectibles, annual appraisals should be conducted, and regular updates to appraisals should also be performed.

At the conference, Mr. Baitcher explained to wealth managers the importance of keeping their clients’ collectibles and valuable personal property in a wealth management portfolio rather than leaving those items as stagnant assets.

About Allan Baitcher
With over thirty years of experience as a professional appraiser, Allan Baitcher has gained national and global recognition as a valuable member of the appraisal field. In addition, Mr. Baitcher is one of the United States’ leading experts in personal property documentation and insurance.

Allens Hire teases Event Colour Schemes using Pantone’s Colour of the Year

Allens Hire, a leading UK provider of catering equipment and furniture hire, has revealed a series of table setting colour scheme recommendations based around Radiant Orchid, Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2014.

Pantone is a colour communications specialist and over the years the company has become a world renowned authority on colour. Every year, Pantone awards its colour on the year, based on in depth research of global cultural and design trends. The organisation considers everything, from art, films and sport to new technology and popular destinations around the world.

This year, they have chosen Radiant Orchid, a vibrant shade of purple as their colour of the year. In honour of their decision, Allens Hire has put together three very different colour schemes, for table settings and events, which all make use of radiant orchid in different ways.

All three colour combinations were revealed on the Allens Hire blog. The first mixes radiant purple with chocolate, grey and black to create stark or minimalist tones; the perfect complement to Allens Hire’s collection of Anthracite dining chairs with black seat pads.

The second variation is a much more regal affair, combining the radiant orchid with red, lavender and pink. The William Edwards Fresco collection of fine china works seamlessly into this tasteful table dressing. A ruby water jug infuses the whole scene with a shot of passion and colour.

Finally, the third combination is full of summer freshness. The radiant purple colouring combines well with olive shades and darker greens, along with yellow and even turquoise to infuse even more colour into the setting. Perfect indoors and out, this colour scheme includes the use of Allens Hire’s purple rimmed plates and lilac matisse linen napkins. Both are right on trend for 2014’s colour palette of the moment.

Harvard Grad Becomes Psychic Counselor

“I’m not sure this is what my parents had in mind,” Noelani Rodriguez chuckles.

She shares her hearty laugh about her career choice, the same one she shares with her many psychic phone clients around the world.

“I loved going to an Ivy League School, but I also love being a phone Psychic Reader.”

Noelani shares her love for metaphysical work with other Ivy League graduates, such as Dr. Joan Borysenko who is a Harvard trained Medical Scientist known for her spiritual mentor training, and Dr. Brian Weiss who is a Harvard trained Psychiatrist known for speaking on Oprah show about Past Life Regressions.

Although Noelani showed a penchant for academic study at an early age, and went to Harvard at age 16, she comes from a long line of spiritual teachers. Her father had a Sunday night religious show popular on the Hispanic TV channel in New York. Her grandmother ran the Hispanic section of the Gospel Tabernacle in the Fifties. Her mom translates for a Billy Graham style minister that fills soccer stadiums in Latin America.

Noelani’s specialty is being a “Psychic Pen Pal” and Phone Psychic Reader for metaphysical people around the world. She gives readings by phone and email.

With a truthful style that is also filled with divine encouragement, Noelani has done over 1000 readings with great reviews on Yelp, Thumbtack, Facebook, Bookfresh and many websites online.

One woman credits her in a review for predicting her meeting her fiance. Noelani told her it would be in June of the following year. “It turned out to be May 31, Memorial Weekend.” said Noelani’s client. “I’ve predicted many relationships,” says Noelani.

Noelani has done missing person’s cases, mediumship readings, love and career readings and much more. She is unique in that she can also write accurate email readings as if she has the person right in front of her. She types a comprehensive email for people facing moves, career change, relationship decisions and more.

“I always tell the truth,” says Noelani. “One woman got upset when I told her her new temp job would not be permanent. I told her the job would lay off half the people in the next year. The woman was incredulous because she was a recruiter. A month later she wrote me and told me the job had laid off half the people. She did get a better one right away,” comments Noelani. “There’s always good news in my readings. There’s a place where Spirit is calling us and life is going to be better there–that’s good news.”

Noelani felt her psychic awakening start 7 years ago. “Since I started reading I have had mostly spiritual folks, healers and intuitive readers like myself. I think this is because it is great to find spiritual dialogue and community for our spiritual growth path, somewhere in society.”

“There’s a Psychologist and Author Dr. Joshua Stone who talks about how Psychologists probably cover about thirty percent of the soul path with a client. We are all mind, body, soul and spirit. I guess he is saying that Spiritual Counselors are important too.”

Noelani loves all faiths and religions. She believes we can all talk to the Divine directly. A Psychic Counselor is just a “second opinion” when you talk to your Intuition.

Noelani is passionate about her work, talking to like-minded spiritual others. Since I’ve paid off my expensive student loans a while back, I can have fun!”

PlagiarismExamine declares war against plagiarism

PlagiarismExamine launches its plagiarism checking service. The company has combined the best features of all the checkers available online and turned them into a brand-new detecting system.

Company officials expect the product to be of a great help to those in need of plagiarism detection. The checker’s audience includes, but is not limited to: students, teachers, content writers, bloggers, webmasters, journalists, copywriters, internet marketing companies, education establishments and lawyers dealing with copyright protection.

About PlagiarismExamine

The service was created by the team of dedicated young IT professionals with their own vision on how should plagiarism be detected. It took a lot of time to analyze all the algorithms present on the web to develop a fresh one that could beat the quality provided by competitors. At this moment there are only two checkers able to compete with PlagiarismExamine. However, they are not able to offer even a half of features PlagiarismExamine users get:

1) Plagiarism check depth. You can decide how deep should we dig. The only thing to keep in mind is that Premium quality is logically a bit more expensive than Standard.
2) Turbo speed of check. When saying «turbo» we mean turbo. An average plagiarism scan takes 10-15 seconds.
3) Plagiarism reporting system. You get results in a convenient form of a report, with all the matches featured and given as hyperlinks. On the left you are able to see all the links to the sources, or you can click on the featured part right in text and be redirected to the source from there. Not to mention the ability to receive reports right to your email address.
4) Full privacy. We do not store texts being submitted. You are the only person who can review reports. Please beware of the services that save your texts, as they might use it for their own profit by publishing them online.
5) Try before you buy. Do not pay to the services that ask you to pay before actually using the system. We give you an opportunity to try the service first, without any limitations in features.
6) Affordable pricing. Prices start at 10 cents.
7) Loyalty program. Up to 20% bonuses and discounts.

Why is PlagiarismExamine not free?
This is the most common question the company receives. Please read the answer given by one of the company’s officials:
«We would love to make plagiarism checking process free, but that is impossible due to the following reasons: 1) the company has to pay salaries to all the employees who keep the service up and running. This includes support desk, webdevs, IT crowd etc; 2) administrative costs on hosting, servers and office itself; 3) the company cooperates with the most popular search engines — Google, Bing and Yahoo — that charge for every check that is made by the customer. Sorry, but we cannot make it free.»

How it all works? 
The plagiarism checking process at PlagiarismExamine is super simple. Just follow these steps:
Upload your text (from file or by pasting)
Confirm that you would like to start a check (the system calculates the number of words and the price automatically)
Get results (review report and see if you have any troubles with authenticity)

Find more information on the company’s website – plagiarismexamine.com. Happy checking!

GPS and Associates Launches new International Background Checks

Godrej Profile Screening doing business as GPS and Associates is a pioneer in the background screening industry. GPS has expanded its services to conduct background checks in India. Chief Executive Officer Andrew Gomez said, “A good number of engineers and other professionals come to our country from India and it would be prudent for companies hiring these individuals, to do their due diligence”. Although India does not have a very organized system or a central registry of crimes or arrests, we have made inroads by researching the respective police departments at the city and town level, and we are able to conduct accurate criminal searches. The kind of information our clients obtain from the applicant becomes crucial in obtaining accurate and timely information.”

The company has obtained contracts with several technology and background screening companies to verify applicants that are migrating or coming here on a work visa. Although the GPS is known for it’s fast and accurate turnaround in Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands and Guam, GPS aims to do the same with searches conducted in India.

GPS was established by Andy Gomez in 1990 and incorporated first in 1992. GPS was one of the first companies to conduct international background checks while doing a lot of Pre-employment background checks right here in the U.S. In a recent speech to Human Resource managers ,CEO Andrew Gomez stressed the importance of knowing who is being hired. He said ” It is vital for all human resource personnel to make certain that due diligence is a integral part of the hiring process, companies need to conduct criminal background checks for loss prevention and other forms of liabilities. International searches are crucial this day and age”.

Entrepreneur Goes From Living in His Truck, To Making a Deal in ‘The Den’

 Entrepreneur Anthony Jones successfully closed a deal with two Dragon’s Den investors on the November 20, 2013 airing of the show. Jones, thrilled at the outcome, explains how he lived out of his half-ton truck when he first started, to build the business literally from the ground up.

“I remember waking up from the sound of the engine running in my half-ton truck at 5am after a night of sleeping in the back seat. I would park every evening at the local truck stop and I would prepare the back seat with the two “large doggy pillows” that I had scrambled for the cash to purchase, (my reason for the doggy pillows was that they are packed with hay and insulation so not to create dampness and humidity,) lay down my sleeping bag, put on my sweatpants, hooded sweater, 2 layers of socks, turn up the radio and fall asleep. When I woke up, I would climb into the front seat and drive to the local YMCA, use the facilities, shower, gym and bathroom – I would get cleaned up and would head off to work. I would buy food that didn’t have a shelf life and would only eat when I needed because I was more worried about having enough money to purchase fuel to stay warm…that was my priority. After a long day’s work I would repeat the same routine.”

Jones is no stranger to business, in fact, prior to starting “Hunky Haulers” he successfully ran a commercial sub-contracting construction company at the age of 19, with $600 to his name. By the time he was 29, they were up to $20 million in labor contracts ($300 million in labor and supply signed contracts to fulfill.) As a result, Jones moved his operations outside of Canada and set up his business in the United States. Unfortunately, in the fall of 2008 when the recession hit, Anthony had to liquidate this business in order to ensure he could make payroll due to uncollectable receivables. By January of 2009, he had to lay off over 200 union men and women employees and start from scratch.

“When I lost my business in 2009 after the recession – I remember thinking, now what? Now it’s going to get hard, what do I do? I started Hunky Haulers in March of 2011 based on an idea to be in a business that would allow me the opportunity to serve the community and give back, I wanted to create something that changed the way people looked at the service industry – the way the service industry looked at the community and the way we empowered businesses, people, churches, charities, ideas, sports programs – around us” said Anthony Jones, CEO of Hunky Haulers. “When I received the email from the producers of CBC’s hit show – Dragons Den, I immediately was excited but was nervous and scared because I didn’t know how I could afford to get there –I mustered up the courage, the little money I had and started driving, didn’t look back and the rest is history. The most important thing that I learned from this experience is that EVERYTHING that is most important to you – that matters the most, WILL fit into a half ton truck, everything else in life is trivial…”

Lamp Post Electrical Store All The Elnur Heat

Lamp Post Electrical have great pleasure in promoting the Elnur range of Storage Heaters. Storage Heaters were once the poor relatives of the heating area as the cost of gas became so much cheaper than the electrical or oil equivalents. In those days storage heaters were limited in their operation and ability but today there has been a whole new range of storage radiators which compete very fairly with the modern gas systems in certain areas and there is a great potential for their further growth in the market. Lamp Post Electrical and Elnur have some of the best and can supply them quickly.

Lamp Post Electrical are delighted to stock the full Elnur Storage Heater range as this is a company which has spent a lot of time and effort in developing some of the best storage heaters on the market. The quality is excellent and the performance is surprisingly good and the latest storage heater is a far cry from the heaters of old and the cost of operation is quite competitive.

Storage Heaters now have a number of niche areas where they dominate the market and Lamp Post Electrical and the Elnur Storage Heaters have risen to the challenge. Apartment living is a major area for storage heaters as there are many areas in large populated apartment blocks where gas has been excluded because of the fire and explosion dangers which are magnified when there is such close proximity between residents. Also the apartment rental market is ideally suited to the installation of a storage heater heating system as it is easy to control by the landlords and easy to use by the renters. This market used to have to pay extra for their heating costs but today the storage heater has improved so much that the heater can be heated at night by cheap electricity on the white meter and discharged the following day and night. Lamp Post Electrical are amazed at the insulation of the latest Elnur Storage Heaters which ensures that the natural heat loss from the storage heater is very small which makes almost all the input heat available to heat the room. The emission of the stored heat is now expertly maintained by digital temperature controllers to ensure correct room temperature.

Lamp Post Electrical can supply all the Elnur range of heaters including the top of range fan controlled storage heaters which can bring the room up to temperature quickly and keep excellent control through the evening. The controllers can be linked to a central control to work exactly as a gas or oil fired system with set periods for heating in the morning and evening. Whilst the cost of use is slightly higher than gas the cost of installation of a storage heater system is very much lower than a gas fired system and the total cost when averaged over the life of the systems is very similar.

Black Friday: Is Thanksgiving Thursday 8pm Becoming The New Black Friday Midnight?

Black Friday is that time of the year in the US shopping calendar after Thanksgiving that sees thousands of shoppers flock retail outlets to take advantage of massive discounts that are offered for many items on sale. Its said Black Friday is the weekend that begins the Christmas shopping season in America.

Retails stores traditionally opened their doors on Friday after Thanksgiving but it seems with tough economic times and the pressure to increase sales, there has been a shift and more retail stores are beginning to open up their stores on Thanksgiving Thursday at around 8pm.

On October 14th Macy’s sent out a press release announcing that they will be opening up their nationwide stores at 8 p.m on Thanksgiving evening for the first time. The Cincinnati-based chain said they did this in response to interest from customers who prefer to start their shopping early.

Kohl’s Department Stores that operates 1,158 stores across the country announced on Monday 21st that their stores will be open for 28 hours straight – from 8 p.m Thursday, November 28 through midnight Friday nationwide.

J.C. Penney has also not been left behind among the big retailers opening business on Thanksgiving. They are doing so for the first time this year. Last year, companies that opened up on Thanksgiving night included Sears, Target, Toys R Us, Kmart and Walmart.

What have been the customer reactions to these changes? A visit to some of the retailers Facebook pages revealed interesting insights on what people thought Patti Simoes Burgess said, “I don’t like that they are going to make their employees work on Thanksgiving. Macy’s used to be my favorite store to go to for Black Friday when I lived in NY. Now I wouldn’t even consider shopping at one because of that. I boycott all stores on Thanksgiving that are open. Workers have a right to be with their families.”

Andrea Lindsey supported JCPenney’s move and said, “It is necessary, because at least in my area almost everyone else is doing the same thing, and in the retail world you have to be competitive.”

Greta Foose strongly disagreed with Kohl’s opening date saying, “The Stores have already commercialized the holidays enough without being open on Thanksgiving day. I will not be shopping with you.”

According to National Retail Federation, consumers will take a conservative approach to spending this holiday season. According to NRF’s holiday consumer spending survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, the average holiday shopper will spend $737.95 on gifts, décor, greeting cards and more, two percent less than the $752.24 they actually spent last year.

The Door Store Has That Summer Calypso Feeling

The Door Store is always looking to improve the range of doors its supplies to the building and Do It Yourself (DIY) trade and each year seems to bring a more interesting range to the already massive selection that the company stocks. The Door Store uses several excellent manufacturers but one of the major ones is JB Kind and this company never seem to disappoint in the issue of new and exciting designs. Their latest range of internal doors is the Calypso range, a range, which epitomises the Caribbean and all that the name evokes.

JB Kind have supplied the Door Store for many years and their new models of doors definitely fit the modern market requirements and this year their new range seems to reflect the hot summer we have had and which is forecast to continue well into September. The Calypso range is a pine door range made for the more modern house or perhaps more correctly the more modern decorated house. This range of doors is a white primed pine door range of the typical shaker style and includes glass panels of various configurations. The design has clean simple lines that will go very well in today’s modern buildings.

The Door Store is pleased to promote the JB Kind Calypso Trinidad Internal Door in particular, which is typical of the range and is a white primed pine door with 3 vertical glass panels. This door is ideal for fitting in halls or rooms where there is an advantage of getting light from one room into another. The vertical glass panels are made from clear safety glass to protect against any potential breakage accidents which may occur. This range of doors is ideal for that summer feeling and will let light into places which may be quite difficult at present.

There is always a discussion to be had regarding the use of pine doors with glass inserts as by definition they do not provide a safety door application so that in the event of a fire they are unable to provide a time barrier between rooms for possible escape, also they do make privacy between rooms difficult or impossible as they do not provide good sound protection or visual privacy to any real degree. Therefore on installing these doors it is necessary to weigh up the options and if a fire door or a privacy door is considered essential then the Door Store has the options available.

The Door Store – http://www.the-door-store.co.uk – notes that the JB Kind Calypso Trinidad Internal Door is made with a central pine core and faced with MDF, which is primed white to enable the end user to get the door painted to their preferred finish, with no need for an extra layer of undercoat.

The manufacture is very good and will grace most applications and comes at a price that is extremely competitive and also has the extra benefit of a 5% discount when 10 doors or more are bought at the same time. This is a door well worth considering.
