Worldwide Branding Member Anthony Beasley Takes a Stand Against Corporate Bullying Today

Anthony BeasleyAnthony Beasley, a recent Worldwide Branding inductee, recently announced his participation in a campaign against bullying in the workplace.

Mr. Beasley will be a key presenter at this year’s Safety Institute of Australia ‘Visions’ Safety Conference on the Gold Coast which is taking place today, November 17, 2014. As part of the presentation’s pre-qualification processes, Mr. Beasley had to prepare a White Paper regarding the need for Accredited Training in the topic of “Managing and Preventing the Risk of Workplace Bullying.” This is because in Australia, there is currently no accredited competency-based program.

Mr. Beasley’s White Paper was accepted, and his team has supported him in the development of an excellent Prezi based presentation.

And in exploring beyond the White Paper, the topic generated such interest with Mr. Beasley’s team and clients, that he and his colleagues recently submitted a detailed application to the Australian Skills Regulator (ASQA) with two draft units to be accepted and released as nationally accredited. These are the first of their kind in Australia.

ASTRA Group Services LogoMr. Beasley and his team has also prepared a media release to align with this exciting development in a topic that costs our economy between $6B to $36Billion per year, and has tragically taken lives for those on the receiving end of bullying.

Regardless of the country or industry – Mr. Beasley feels that the topic of bullying in the workplace is a subject that is of interest and value to all.

Donna York, President of HARK Inc., Announces Screenings of Hope on the Horizon: An Expedition for ALS

HARK logoAt the helm of HARK Inc. Donna York has long been pushing to raise awareness of the disease that has stricken families and friends across the nation, and taken the lives of many beloved individuals. ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, is a condition that is often referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. Since its establishment, the organization has made tremendous strides through the production of “Hope on the Horizon: An Expedition for ALS,” a documentary that premiered on November 9, 2013 in the private screening room of NBC Universal.

From the website:

The 48 highest peaks in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, also known as the “4000 footers”, cover over 250 miles of various terrain and over 70,000 feet of elevation. Four hikers, including the filmmaker, set out to summit all 48 in a single trip on foot, two completed the journey and reached the 48th summit in 24 days to raise awareness and funding for ALS patients and their families.

HARK’s Hope on the Horizon Documentary is the first step in “Changing the way the world views ALS” and ensuring that the world knows what the disease is and how devastating it is to families that are affected by it. As we navigated our way through ALS we realized the severe lack of awareness that existed about this disease outside of the ALS community.

Hope on the Horizon is not just about ALS, it’s about facing life’s challenges with courage and overcoming seemingly insurmountable odds every day. The documentary will bring viewers a firsthand view of two sets of challenges simultaneously. The challenges of negotiating the fragile beauty and rugged terrain of the White Mountains serves as a compelling backdrop to show true challenges and hardships faced by ALS victims and their loved ones in dealing with this devastating disease.

Through this film HARK will change the way the world views ALS, increase awareness of this fatal disease and raise funding to provide financial assistance to ALS patients and their families as they face a challenge far greater than the White Mountains.

Screenings will be held soon! Don’t forget to get your tickets, bring your family and friends, and join Ms. York and her team of dedicated professionals. Below, please find the list of upcoming screenings:

Dr. Michael Sichel Shares Information about HPV Vaccine’s Adverse Effects

Michael Sichel, DO, NDWorldwide Branding member Michael Sichel, DO, ND, recently shared one of the tens of thousands of stories of adverse events that occur after HPV vaccination , which are occurring globally.

As you read this story please keep in mind the following facts:

1) A criminal court case against the Merck-Sanofi Pasteur Laboratories and the Spanish health authorities is currently being held in Spain and many court cases are in progress in France and India regarding the harm caused by this vaccine. This vaccine has also been removed from some national vaccination programs including Japan and India due to a lack of knowledge of their safety and efficacy.

2) The World Health Organisation (WHO) states that Pap screening is the safest and most effective prevention for cervical cancer. Early detection of abnormal cells allows for them to be removed to prevent any progression to cancer. However, the WHO does not recommend Pap screening before 26 years of age because abnormalities in young women are known to naturally regress and in most cases never lead to cancer later in life. Cervical cancer occurs in women over 30 years of age. The majority of high-grade (CIN 3) lesions in women under 26 years of age regress naturally and are not a predictor of cancer later in life. This is why Pap screening is not needed in women under 26 years of age. Cervical cancer is a very low risk in women in Australia because the risk factors for this disease are not prevalent.

Here is one of many stories of adverse events after HPV vaccination that is occurring globally:

“Courtney’s Mum: The decision I will always regret”

Wendy Barnes Early wants to share her daughter Courtney’s story and what happened to her after receiving the Gardasil vaccine – thankfully only one shot.

“In the summer of 2012, I took my daughter to her Pediatrician for her routine annual exam. Her doctor strongly recommended that Courtney receive Gardasil because they highly recommend this vaccine for teens. Within 3-4 weeks after Courtney had her first and only Gardasil vaccine, she complained of headaches daily, extreme fatigue, and nausea. She had little to no energy which was NOT like my daughter. She became very moody, irritable and almost depressed. Soon she was complaining about not wanting to eat, muscle weakness and tremors. Her hands would shake uncontrollably, along with her legs. I noticed at times her hands would look mottled, then turn purple/blue in color. If you have ever seen a person after they pass, this is what her hands looked like. This truly scared me as I am a nurse by profession and I felt like I was watching my sweet outgoing daughter deteriorate.

After going through many, many tests Courtney was eventually diagnosed – then we met with her case doctor, she diagnosed Courtney with ‘Autonomic Dysfunction.’ This is a neurologic disease that they are also seeing more of. She has been placed on a high salt diet, drinking a lot of fluids especially water, placed on an exercise regime, and she takes a prescription for this 3 times daily.

She was full of life UNTIL she received her first and only Gardasil vaccine and this is a decision I regret every second of every day – if only I could turn back the clock!

Michael Sichel, DO, ND advises Worldwide Branding of the many stories of adverse events after HPV vaccination that are occurring globallyTherefore, to all the families out there who are thinking about having their daughters vaccinated with Gardasil please, please be careful, do your own research and see the high number of young ladies and guys who are experiencing serious health issues following vaccination. You have a healthy child one day and after being vaccinated with Gardasil, or Cervarix, this healthy child is no more. They develop unexplained health issues which more than often are misdiagnosed and in many cases a finger is pointed at them that their condition is ‘psychosomatic.’  Please believe me your child is sick and requires medical attention – never allow anyone to try and make this out to be a mental health issue. What happened to my daughter I know, and believe, that her symptoms were caused by Gardasil.”

Click here to read Courtney’s story

Please take the time to visit the Sanevax (Safe, Affordable, Necessary and Effective Vaccines) website to investigate Gardasil (HPV vaccine) before consenting to its use in children in school vaccination programs. Please also inform the health department of any problems your child notices after having this vaccine.

Jennifer A. Moumane, MA Looks to Publish Book and Bring Fresh Water to Tiflet, Morocco in 2015

Within the upcoming year, Jennifer A. Moumane, Director of Annual Giving and Database Management for the Girl Scouts of Central Maryland, intends to print and circulate her dissertation, which focuses on famous works of art that were found at the ruins of Great Zimbabwe, a city that stood between the 11th and 15th century, and flourished exceedingly before its enigmatic decline. Ms. Moumane, a Worldwide Branding member and Nonprofit Fundraising Professional of the Year, is also an award-winning community leader and an expert in technology, nonprofit management and resourcing, who plans to conduct research on the eight mystifying soapstone birds that were located in the ruins, which scholars have said functioned as emblems of royal authority, or perhaps represented the ancestors of Great Zimbabwe’s leaders. These important artifacts exist as prized symbols of a nation; monuments that link the present with the past.

In addition to her upcoming book, Ms. Moumane and her husband Driss will be digging a well that will bring fresh water to the local community of Tiflet, Morocco in the upcoming year. Just outside of the capital city of Rabat, Tiflet is rich with ancient history, and has a population of just over 70,000 people. Because fresh drinking water is a scarce necessity, Ms. Moumane looks forward to lending a helping hand to those who do not readily have access to clean water by digging the fresh water well and establishing lasting relationships with those who will use and maintain it, as she hopes that the well will make a positive difference in their lives.

Michael Waring Shares Updates on Australia’s Postal System and the Country’s Number One Brand

Michael WaringWorldwide Branding member Michael Waring, a Postal Officer and Communications Specialist serving the Delivery Division of the Australia Post, is in charge of overseeing the creation of the Code of Ethics in a corporate organization to strengthen cultural pillars of success in the workplace. With a wealth of knowledge and experience in his field, he recently received a 25th anniversary plaque from the Australia Post, as well.

Mr. Waring recently announced the latest updates made at the Australia Post on his website:

Over the last 10 years the acceleration of decline of small letter has continued but AP has prepared well in putting brakes on these changes.

The first launched earlier this year was Posts rebranding of its freight fleet.

The blue trucks with Startrack emblem are keeping up to increasing demand of Internet Shopping and voyage of parcel across many networks.

The fact is parcels are outweighing letters for first time in history but the humble postman has been part of these changes delivering more packets and scanning articles for reciept at point of delivery.

Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour, a former New York Banker, says he is preparing new products and solutions to allieviate further changes in delivery of mail and e-commerce solutions for customers.

StarTrack will not just be a local solution but will handle our International customers’ needs in Australia giving Post that added edge.

Apple and Australian Pharmaceuticals are just two important customers.

Sydney and Melbourne will complete newly fitted extensions with new cutting edge parcel sorting delivery technology and new bar coding with speed accuracy set to move parcels quicker and smarter than ever.

This also means the human resources of Australia Post need to be at their best so Code of Ethics needs to be implemented well and Safety remain on top of agenda so effect on organisation is limited and brand remains best in country.
