Disability rights In schools are civil rights too!

Disability rights In schools are civil rights too!
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), was signed into law on July 26. 1990. More than fifty million Americans have some kind of physical, cognitive, sensory, or mental disability. The ADA’s extensive provisions for employment, state and local governments, transportation,public accommodations, and telecommunications, has helped end discrimination towards those with disabilities tremendously. Congress' concern to eliminate intentional and benign discrimination against disabled individuals is evident in the findings and purpose of the ADA. 42 U.S.C. § 12101.

Bridal Expo in Old Sacramento July 19

Bridal Expo in Old Sacramento July 19

Old Sacramento hosts more than 200 weddings a year, according to their Business Association, plus there are many wedding product offerings and scenic backdrops among its merchants.  It's only natural that a bridal show would be held there.  

Bridal Expo is Sunday, July 19, aboard the Delta King Hotel on Front Street in Old Sacramento.  The show hours are 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. 

This unique show includes a Treasure Hunt for wedding couples. They will find clues that will lead them from one spot to the other, until they find the Treasure - a honeymoon stay in Italy.

Wedding pros will be on hand to give the couples in-depth information to help them be better equipped to plan their weddings. Services and products represented include photography, videography, catering, venues, gowns, corsets, djs, music, florists, cakes, jewelry, beauty products and more.

Some featured designers are Demetrios, Alfred Angelo, and Jasmine Couture and some are on sale for 50-70% off retail.  Proceeds will go to My Sister's House, a shelter for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault and human trafficking that also offers education, job training and other services.

Get Back to Work: Business Cards

Get Back to Work: Business Cards

In my upcoming book, Get Back to Work: Smart and Savvy Real-World Strategies to Make your Next Career Move, the fourth chapter – Business Cards – shares ideas about what to put on a business card and where to print them. 

Here is an excerpt from the book:

Business cards (also referred to as networking cards) are not only for those employed by businesses. Anyone seeking a new opportunity should have a business card. They are a great networking tool, so have them ready and use them.

There are many different places where you can have business cards printed. Try www.vistaprint.com and www.gotprint.net on the Internet, or use a local print shop. You can also purchase business cards at an office supply store, a Wal-Mart, or a Target. Microsoft Word can even be used to create and print them.
