Vasectomy for 18m in Chicagoland area?

2020.09.02 04:56 SlowieLowie Vasectomy for 18m in Chicagoland area?

I am an 18 year old male in college. I am very sexually active with my longtime partner. Ever since I was a freshman, I knew that I could never stomach the idea of having biological children when there are so many in the foster system. I am 100% sure that I want to have a vasectomy, but the doctor's office I called said that I should wait until I get married. No luck there. I'm from Naperville, IL, anyone know of any doctors willing to give vasectomies to people my age?

Sept. 27, 1953 - July 23, 2020
Mary C. Lepschat, 66, a longtime resident of the Forest Grove community, died Thursday afternoon, July 23, 2020 at her home. Born Sept. 27, 1953 in Norfolk, Neb., the daughter of the late William Lloyd Phillips and Anna Mae (Curran) Phillips. She was raised and received her early education in Nebraska and Illinois, until the age of fourteen years old, when she moved with her family to Oregon, settling in the Lake Oswego community. Mary completed her schooling in Lake Oswego, having been a graduate of the Lake Oswego High School Class of 1971.
She was united in marriage to John H. Lepschat, Sr., May 5, 1979 in Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church in Lake Oswego, Ore. They celebrated their 41st Wedding Anniversary this past May. Following their marriage they have made their home in the Forest Grove community, since.
Mary worked at O.K. Floral in Forest Grove for five years. She later worked as a teacher's aide for special needs children for the Forest Grove School District #15, at the Forest Grove High School and at Harvey Clarke Elementary School for five years, until 2007, when she retired. She was a lifelong member of the Catholic Church, having been a member of Our Lady of the Lake Parish in Lake Oswego, St. Anthony's Parish in Forest Grove and Visitation of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish in Verboort.
Among her special interests, Mary enjoyed water and snow skiing, walking, running, and playing with her grandchildren. She was an avid fan of the Cubs and the Trailblazers.
She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Anna Phillips. Survivors include her husband, John Lepschat, Sr. of the family home in Forest Grove, Ore.; her son and daughter-in-law, Johnny and Sreymon Lepschat, of Portland, Ore.; her daughter and son-in-law, Tiffany and Sean Anderson, of Milwaukie, Ore.; her four brothers and sisters-in-law, Mike and Patty Phillips, of Naperville, Ill.; Bill Phillips, of Beaverton, Ore.; John and Jan Phillips, of Tualatin, Ore., Dave and Kathy Phillips, of Portland, Ore.; and her sister, Julieanna Phillips and her partner, Marc Gurvitz, of Malibu, Calif.

2020.05.22 04:14 Davidelop33 The Use of Omnichannel Contact Centers to Enhance Customer Experience

Customer experience is the top priority of any customer-facing company worth its salt. This should go without saying. However, what most people in positions of leadership don’t seem to realize is that customer experience is defined by a lot more than the initial interaction of purchasing the product or service. Most customers treat their purchases as long-term investments, and they expect to get something out of that in the end.
And it’s up to you to make sure that this happens – not just by delivering a good product in the first place, but also by ensuring that people can get good use out of it in the long run.
A Long-Term Relationship
Purchasing a product is not the end of the customer’s interaction with the company – far from it. They are indirectly interacting with that company each time they use that product, comment on it, discuss it with others, and so on. With that in mind, you should ensure that customers have appropriate channels to voice their concerns and other comments.
An omnichannel contact center can address this issue in pretty much every way imaginable. By handling all communication channels in one consolidated place, you’ll ensure that customers are always serviced properly. At the same time, you’ll also get to spend less on your customer support as opposed to handling it in-house.
Meeting Growing Demands and Expectations
As your company continues to grow, so will the expectations of your customers. You have to make sure that you’re prepared to meet them at every step. This is especially true when it comes to customer support. It defines a major part of the customer experience, and you can subsequently expect it to be affected the most by the growth of your customer base.
A reliable call centre should be able to handle those growing demands with no issue. As long as you pick someone who understands how the market works and what you (and your customers) expect to get out of the whole ordeal, you should rest assured that things are being handled properly.
Optimizing Your Resources
As we mentioned above, working with a good contact center is a great way to improve the use of your resources. You can spend less on this service while also getting it delivered in a more professional manner, and at the same time you’ll even get detailed feedback and analytical details from the interactions between representatives and your customers.
The more you continue to focus on providing adequate customer support through your omnichannel contact center, the more you’ll see your customer satisfaction rates going up. This will allow you to focus more effort on developing your product and ensuring that it meets all market expectations. The rest of the process can be handled by your contact centre partner, as they will ensure that your customers are treated properly whenever they have an issue with your work. Nurture this relationship well, and it will be one of the biggest positive factors in your company’s operations.

2020.03.27 18:30 SilasBoyd Drummer and multi-instrumentalist looking to make some grooves and some money!

Hey all,
My partner and I just got laid off from our full time jobs yesterday.
As a result, we will be moving into the Naperville area around the end of April.
Looking for every opportunity to make some funky music when we arrive!
I've been playing drums for 12 years and have a lot of experience both gigging and music production at home. I'm partially trained in just about every genre, loving everything I've come in contact with.
If you're interested in picking up a percussionist, kit drummer, performer, session instrumentalist or you just want to jam, shoot me a DM!
Thanks, all! Looking forward to exploring a new scene.
P.S. I'll be in and around this subreddit a lot to learn about the area. If you know of anywhere good just to grab a bite or listen to local bands, let me know!

2019.09.09 03:36 adeiner Cleanup Needed in the Seafood Aisle

Life is full of mundane announcements we sort of hear but don't process until much later. Be it the garbled "Next stop is Quincy" on the L or "John Smith to Gate A, John Smith to Gate A" at O'Hare.

As someone with a shellfish allergy, the announcement about the seafood aisle didn't immediately register. The AirPods Kevin bought me for my birthday didn't help either, but Carly Rae Jepsen helps me move faster and drown out the awful Muzak. I had 20 minutes to get snacks for my husband's party and home to our apartment. Our. Such a strange, adult word. 2019 had been full of strange words. Like being Spouse 1 according to the state of Illinois or having to explain to my insurance company that my partner was in fact also a man. Moving out of the city to Naperville was an adjustment too, but the things we do for our husband's work and the cost of living. More strange words.
So with all this on my plate I didn't immediately realize that there was a mess in the seafood aisle. I didn't even know the store had a seafood aisle. Perhaps I should have. The voice sounded out of breath, so at first I thought it was a teenage prank. When he laughed it only confirmed it. A bit of a cliché, but it's finally cool enough to leave the house. Do what you gotta do to handle life, I guess.

"Cleanup Needed in the Produce Section!" There was that voice again. Almost taunting me, because he knew Kevin would kill me if I didn't grab carrots for the dip. The things we do for our husbands.

So despite running late, I went back to the produce department. I hoped to avoid the mess or the awful teenager making these announcements.

I turned the corner and came face-to-face with a red-faced teenager. The face matched the clothes. I wish it hadn't. We stared at each other, and I couldn't hear Run Away With Me. I couldn't hear the generic pop blasting through the store. I couldn't hear the ragged breathing of the customers lying in between the tomato stand and the pepper section. All I heard was this teenager pick up the phone for the store intercom and say "New cleanup in the Produce Section!"

As I stared down the barrel of his gun, I had one final thought. If there was one announcement I wish I had processed much sooner it would have been the one on my phone.

The one that read "Active shooter in Naperville. Please take caution."

Does anyone know if anyone in the Naperville area rents practice space for dancing? I'm looking for someplace for a dance partner and me to practice salsa on a regular basis. A wood floor would be nice. If you have tips, I'd like to hear!
Thanks.

Newbie here!!! Looking to partner with someone in the St. Charles, Naperville, or Aurora, IL area. I reside in Chicago but spend most of my day in St. Charles (I work out this way) and will often spend the night with family if I have business to do out this way or I'm too tired to drive back to the city. I'd prefer to have a partner for safety reasons or at least until I'm a bit more experienced. Open to all tips and suggestions.

2018.08.28 14:23 unsung_pleb Green Thumb Industries: a closer look

Green Thumb Industries
The purpose of this document is to find value within GTBIF by looking at where GTI operates, how they operate and identify any catalysts that might launch this little giant into orbit. Lets begin...
Current standings
· Vertically integrated
· Controls and operates 100% of the production supply chain
· Does not strive to be long-term cannabis farmers
· Anticipates that specialization and consolidation along the supply chain will force out high-cost providers
· Develops, manufactures and distributes a portfolio of branded cannabis products including brands rythm , and Dogwalkers, among others, to its retail partners, some of which GTI owns as a chain of retail stores called RISE
· Placement of its branded cannabis products in 97 out of 97 open and operating stores in the Corporation’s markets currently selling wholesale (Illinois and Maryland)
· GTI owns and operates a 50-store national chain of retail stores called RISE Dispensaries with mature revenue
· 13 stores open and operating and with 20+ open stores expected by the end of calendar year 2018
· Focuses on limited licensed markets where competition is more limited than other markets. (less competition means more profit to be captured)
· Product categories including: flower, concentrates for dabbing and for vaporizing (including disposable and pre-filled cartridges), topicals (bath and beauty products), and edibles (confection, beverages, snacks)
· GTI is driving down cost of goods by expanding capacity in its most mature facility and currently they are under construction and building additional indoor cultivation space

· In Illinois, GTI was the first to sell cannabis to retail consumers on the first day of the program in November 2015
· IL was the largest contributor of GTI's revenue for 2017, will be a large contributor in 2018 as well but should reduce in its share of revenue due to business expansions in other areas
· Adult recreational use on horizon
· Chronic pain use on horizon
· J.B. Pritzker running for Governor and is using marijuana legalization as a means to get votes. My intuition tells me this.. he will in some way have something to do with GTI in the future, but this is only a guess and a hunch as he is a philanthropist, venture capitalist and entrepreneur as well as a politician obviously

This concludes the small portion of DD of GTI / GTBIF. I feel that as more information came to light and the more I learned about management and their worries/solutions to those worries, the more confident I felt about my investment.
I do hope that the financials that will be released later today will reflect what I see in this company - solid fundementals and management that appears to be doing a very solid job just based on reading some of the strategies they have in place.
Please keep in mind that a lot of my DD herein does contain some month old information so there might be dispensaries already in operation today that I might have stated are still to be open but have actually been in operation for a bit of time.

2018.04.01 21:04 FuyuhikoFan4Ever [BB] Drama House 18: Pandemonium

Happy Easter, everyone! And welcome back to Drama House! This is our second season after season eleven to be posted on Easter or any other holiday! With that little coincidence out of the way, I was able to quickly get the eighteenth season done. I would first like to give congratulations to Notausername77 and dawnwins for having your characters selected to play in the eighteenth season. It was a difficult process choosing the two that would be entering the house, plus I wanted to make it one male and one female and since dawnwins had the only biological female, it got selected by default. As for the others, it was a hard choice, especially for two specific people, but I ultimately chose one over the other because I really felt like they had more to give.
With that sappy stuff out of the way, the season is right here (I can guarantee you this is not an April Fools' prank on you guys; it's a legit season) if you want to dive right into it. Though if you want to read the bios you already know where they are. With that, I hope you enjoy the season!
Aiden Loppy, a 22-year-old unemployed college student from Brooklyn, New York (created Notausername77)
“Hello, I'm Aiden Loppy, I'm 22 years old... No, I don't have a job yet, unfortunately. I was born in California, and my parents were very poor. Plus, they had 6 children, with me being the third child. Once I miraculously finished high school, I packed my bags and moved to Brooklyn, New York, for some opportunities. I started gaming in my apartment and have been streaming on Twitch for a while and it’s helped me to develop a strategical mind, so that should be somewhat useful. I’m still not making any money and I’m pretty much living on money that my relatives send me. I figured that this show will really get to turn that around for me and I can win some nice cash. I think I’m a lovable guy and maybe I’ll win Fan Favorite. Sure, I’m a little shy at first, but eventually, that opens the door for me to become the greatest guy you’ll ever meet! From there, I’ll be able to really control the game with everyone on my side and use my story for the greater good! Even if I must hurt a few feelings down the road, it probably won’t be that bad. Not sure what I’ll do with the money after I win, though. Still, I know I’m going to be great at this game!”
Aqua-Maria “Aqua” Adams, a 19-year-old marine biologist and singer from Cherry Hill, New Jersey (created by dawnwins)
“Hi everyone! My name’s Aqua-Maria, but obviously, you can just call me Aqua. I’m from the small state of New Jersey and I am a marine biologist! Well, not yet; I’m really only studying to become one, but I think I’m experienced enough to say that I’m a one. I also do some singing gigs in my spare time to make some extra cash. Money is really much of a problem to me since I was born into a wealthy family, so I normally got the things I wanted. With enough money in my pocket, I moved out of my parents’ mansion and started university this year to become what I sorta am today: a marine biologist! I also started competing on reality game shows, and it looks like Drama House was my next stop. I’ve never watched an episode, but apparently, it has been going on for eighteen seasons, counting this one! So, I want to become the mastermind of the season, which shouldn’t be difficult. After all, I already do have a lot of knowledge from what I’m studying, so I should be somewhat smarter than everyone else in the house. I don’t want to hurt anyone, though. I want to still stay true to myself and be regarded as a heroic player. Maybe the most heroic! Well, wish me luck.”
Aviv Ridney, a 36-year-old businesswoman from Grandview Heights, Ohio
“Jesus, I’m a mess today. My hair’s a mess, my face is just terrible, and -- oh, are we recording? Sorry. Well, uh, hello. My name is Aviv, and I’m from Ohio. I am a businesswoman, and the job pays me well, and I have a nice family with a husband and three kids. I’m the typical ‘stressed out businesswoman’ as people like to label me as. It’s quite the pity, but I can’t deny it. Keeping a job is one thing, but trying to keep a family straight along with keeping the job can really make you… well, look kinda like me, I guess. I don’t want to break the stereotype that was put on me, because I know I’m going to freak out in the Big Brother house, too. Especially with the camera watching me and all; it’ll make me go paranoid. The big thing is that the family does need some extra cash and winning the game would really help, so I have to try my best when ignoring the camera and only focus on the prize money in the end. The big thing that’s gonna set me back is my quick retreat to paranoia, especially if I’m on the hot seat to be evicted and I need to put my trust into the right people. The worst case scenario would be having a panic attack, which I have been able to avoid since my high school years. Oh god, I probably just jinxed it. Oh no… well, there’s no turning back now.”
Finn Ragan, a 42-year-old high school algebra teacher from Prosper, Texas
“Alright, class is finally in session for the cast of season eighteen! Woo! I’m Mr. Ragan, and I’ll be your teacher for the next month or two inside the house. So, eighteen seasons of Drama House. Who knew it was going to do so well? Certainly not me. Well, I decided to give it a try since it’s one of the shows on TV that I keep seeing advertising for. So, here I am, getting on with the first try. So, what am I going to be doing within the house? Well, I want to find myself a partner in crime. You know, someone I can teach the ins-and-outs of the game. From there, we can both reach the final two and one of us, probably me, will win the game. I just need to hide all my flaws from the jury and I should be able to win without a problem. After all, they have to crown the perfect winner, and that person will be me.”
Isaac Moseley, a 54-year-old “detective” (private investigator) from Ridgetop, Tennessee
“Greetings, fellow Americans. Allow to start off by saying that my name is Isaac Moseley or Detective Moseley. I’m a detective in the state of Tennessee, and I take my job very seriously. Technically, I’m a ‘private investigator’ by the typical Americans, but I’m still the British detective I dreamed of becoming. As you could probably tell, I am Brit, and I used to live the United Kingdom until I graduated my eleventh year of school or my ‘senior year’ of ‘high school.’ I started my twelfth year and a few months after my seventeenth birthday, I moved to the United States to start my career as a detective or ‘private investigator’. Yes, I look ridiculous when I show up in a coat and bowler hat like I just got out of a Doctor Who convention, but I still do my job significantly well. Plus, it’s better than having to live with my folks when I can just have my own dwelling in America. I then heard of this show called Drama House, and my boss got me a spot to detect any funny business within the house. And so, I’m going in the house hoping no one will realize that I am a spy for my boss. I just realized I have said too much to you people. Excuse me for I must, er, use the restroom! Out of my way!”
Jordan Lee, an 18-year-old high school student from Las Vegas, Nevada
“So, er... hi! I’m Jordan, and I’m currently a high school student. My mom told me once I become eighteen that I should try out for this show, and I decided to fulfill her wish. And boy is she proud. You probably guessed it from the famous blonde hair that I’m the son of Rebecca Lee! Yeah, not many people realize that she was married, but she actually gave birth to me a year before Drama House started, where she was the youngest winner at the time. Then she left for another summer when I was seven for Ultimates, where she almost won the game again. Then there was season eleven where she wasn’t able to play since her clique was bullshit. Still, she has played with a lot of legends like Lars Ziramon, Mark Snyder, and freakin’ Diamond! I never got to meet any of these people, though. But I’m going to become one of them! And here I am, wearing fake glasses to look like an innocent nerd. I’m also going to be a 22-year-old teacher from New Jersey, so that should be fun. Hopefully, no one will find that I’m actually her son, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see! I just want to keep the Lee legacy going and make my mom and Uncle Nick proud!”
Kyle Valenzuela, a 32-year-old photographer from Laie, Hawaii
“Hey, everyone! The first houseguest from Hawaii has arrived! The name’s Kyle, and I take pictures for a living. Pictures of models, flowers, trees, houses; whatever it is, it’ll be quality. I also work with Photoshop, so I’ll fix up anything that looks ugly. I’m a stickler for details, which will intimidate people when I ask them questions, like their loyalty towards me, alliances, and anything that can be lied about. I’m still a good guy at heart but I’ll probably not like you if you say something that’s somewhat fishy. And there’s no warning for something like that, so just talk to me like you have to speak nothing but the truth, and we’ll have a good relationship. Otherwise, you’re only picking up the shovel to dig your grave and from there it could only get worse.”
Lori Caraballo, a 35-year-old middle school grammar teacher from Lebanon, New Hampshire
“Hello. My name is Lori Caraballo, and I teach middle school grammar. You know, people always feel sorry because I’m teaching at a middle school, but it’s honestly better than teaching high school kids who are much more annoying. Middle school students are somewhat more obedient. All I got to deal with them is the hormones, and normally those things don’t take too long to go away. But even I need a break from life, and I think Drama House is going to be the appropriate fit for me, even if I am not the best in shape when it comes to competitions, but not all competitions require physical skills, and I’m going to win those competitions! Though competitions aren’t a big deal for me; I just want to be liked by everyone and that should get me farther into the game when I can start to control things. Then I’ll win the game! Simple.”
Lucie Lefevre, a 23-year-old librarian from Lowell, North Carolina
“Bonjour, my loves. I am Lucie, originally from France and now living in North Carolina! I actually wanted to become an author, but I guess a librarian will have to do. That’s the big reason why I came to America: To begin my career as a world-sensational author! But for now, I have to deal with what I am currently. Plus, I’d need to have some money to start somewhere when I become an author. And since this show is offering a lot of money, I decided to give it a try. I’m not sure how I’ll really play the game, though. I never heard of it other than French version, and I believe that has a different format from the American one. So, it’ll definitely be the experience. I’m not going to say all the generic ‘I’ll try to be nice to everyone and win that way,’ because nobody likes that generic storyline anymore. If anything, I’m going to be aggressive while playing the game and see what they’ll say then, because every show needs a villain, and I’m going to be the very one. Somehow.”
Marla Lemke, a 28-year-old entertainer from Exton, Pennsylvania
“Hey, what’s up, America! It’s the iconic Marla Lemke, finally giving this show a try after popular demand from my fans. So, here I am! So, I’m from Pennsylvania, and I have my own show called The Lemke Show, available on cable and FM radio! In my downtime, though, I do watch Drama House and I decided that I’d try it out for once since my fans think I’m going to be great at it. So, maybe they’re right. Obviously, I’m not going for the competitions; I want to win the game through socializing. By making the appropriate ties with the right people, it should get me to the finale in no time flat. I just hope I don’t come off as judgy to some people, mainly because I don’t want to align myself with people who might ruin my reputation and career outside the house. To lose everything because of some jackass would be stupid and I totally wouldn’t invite them to any of my shows, either. Still, I think I’m generally a good person and I think that’s all I need in my head to win the game!”
Nolan Chamberlin, a 19-year-old college student from Salado, Texas
“Hey, I’m Nolan. You’re probably thinking to yourself, ‘The hell is up with the makeup and dyed hair?’ Well, this is actually natural. To put it simply, I have albinism, which is like a skin disease that doesn’t produce pigment, or color, onto my skin or hair. It also produces pink eyes instead of the natural black, brown, or blue color. It’s nothing that affects me at a physical level, so I can still compete in competitions and such. Though I’m packing loads of sunscreen for the game because I’m sensitive to sunlight. Along with that, I have my iconic grey hoodie. So with that sob story out of the way, I don’t want to use it to some advantage like people do on America’s Got Talent. I want to play like a normal houseguest and I want the other houseguests to accept that. I’d hate to run into someone who’s too wrapped up in their reputation that they wouldn’t associate with me in any way. I’m not sure how I’ll really play the game, though. I’ve watched a few of the recent seasons, but other than that I’m not entirely experienced in strategizing for a game like Drama House. Regardless, I have my family, friends, and surgeons cheering me on from back home so I should at least try to hold my head high when I’m in distress within the house because I know they’ll be waiting with open arms back at home.”
Ricardo Lozano, a 33-year-old surfer from Key Biscayne, Florida
“Yo, yo, yo, it’s yo boy, Ricardo! If you couldn’t tell, I’m a loud person. And I take pride in being a loud person! Loud people are the best people to have in the house because they’re the easiest people to get along with or have a nice conversation with. So, I’m going to use that to get me further. Competitions are nice, too. I’m going to put my effort into every competition I’m in just so I can be seen as a strong person. From there, people will idolize me and then I’ll be put into an alliance, and I’ll take control of the alliance. Then that’s where the brainy part of me comes in as I carefully plan eviction after eviction until I’m granted the money! I’m kinda in a need for money because living in Key Biscayne is expensive, and I’m currently only living off yearly surfing competitions and my surfing lessons. So that house better watch out because the next biggest thing is coming for them!”
Rodney Slattery, a 40-year-old musician from Naperville, Illinois
“Okay, let’s cut to the chase. I’m Rodney from Illinois, blah blah blah, I’m on Drama House. But I don’t want to be an ordinary houseguest. I’m want to leave an impact on the season; I want to be a game changer. That should also give me some inspiration for some songs, too. But seriously, it’s been a while since we really had any game changers. So I want to try to be one of them and be regarded as the best player of the season. I know it’s asking for a lot, but I’ve been watching and rewatching seasons of Drama House ever since the very first season, so I know the what’s a good decision versus a bad one, and I know who I should trust versus who I shouldn’t. With this advanced thinking, no one should see it coming when it comes time for me to shine. So let this game throw it’s best at me; it’ll feel like nothing to me.”
Seo Jooyeon, a 25-year-old author from Chapin, South Carolina
“Hey, everyone. I’m Seo, and I’m an author. I’m not an official author, though; I just write stories on a small site called Quotev, but they are of professional quality so please check them out. When I’m away from writing, I’m a barista at a local coffee shop. But since I spend most of my time in front of a computer screen, I’m more introverted than you’d think. But I need money for my rent so I think the money from this show should be enough to pay at least three years of rent! That’s why the money so important to a girl like me! I’m not sure how well I’ll do as a player, though. I’m thinking of being the mastermind since socializing isn’t my cup of tea or coffee. But I don’t want to be seen as a lazy turtle that won’t come out of its shell so maybe I’ll give it a try but if it falls flat then I’m retreating quickly. And I don’t want to float to the end either, but maybe f I look decent while doing it then maybe I’ll have a chance at the end.”
Suzy Nesbitt, a 30-year-old hair stylist from Saratoga, California
“Hey everyone! I’m Suzy, and I’m a flawless hair stylist. I’m one of the best in California, so you better choose me the next time you need to fix up your hair. With that out of the way, I think a lot of people will be somewhat intimidated by me because I have dyed hair, so they’d think I’m some badass figure. I honestly want to be a badass figure, but I don’t think it’ll be necessary. Besides, it could send me home if I play too hard. So I’m going to try to be an apprentice to anyone I can be an apprentice to. That way we have each other’s back and we can be the two masterminds controlling the house. I’ve never done anything so malicious before, but it’s nice to try new things. I guess. Plus, the cash prize is going to really help me pay off those damn student loans so they can get off my back, for Jesus’ sake. So, I’m going to get a little dirty while playing this game if it means that I eventually get the money at the end! I probably don’t even need luck from supporters!”
Tomika Winter, a 22-year-old kindergarten teacher from Farley, Iowa
“Hi, guys. I’m Tomika, and I’m a kindergarten teacher. You’d think this job makes me all soft and fragile, and you’re partly right. I’m not completely fragile, but I am soft for sure. Though I like my softness because it makes it easier for people who need to talk to me. I just hope that the house doesn’t mind me being the ‘Goody Two-Shoes’ type of character because I can be aggressive just like any of them. And I can prove that I have been aggressive, like one time I drank milk straight from the carton. I’m a total savage. Then I didn’t clean it up for two hours until I slipped and… er, that doesn’t matter what happened after. But I can still be a bad girl, just you wait and see! You need to have thick skin for this game and I will grow some… or develop some because skin doesn’t necessarily grow and… oh forget it, you knew what I meant!”

Honolulu selected to join national What Works Cities initiative
Joins 99 other cities committed to making city government more effective using data and evidence
Today, Mayor Kirk Caldwell announced that the City and County of Honolulu has been selected as one of five new cities to participate in Bloomberg Philanthropies’ national What Work Cities initiative – one of the largest-ever philanthropic efforts to enhance the use of data and evidence in the public sector. Honolulu will receive technical assistance from world-class experts to build our capacity to address local issues using data and evidence.
“On an island of just 600 square miles and nearly one million residents in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, it is to our great advantage to embrace all that technology has to offer in order to achieve the most efficient results,” said Mayor Caldwell. “Whether it’s providing city services such as driver license renewals and car registrations, to trash pick-up and zero-based budgeting, the City and County of Honolulu has embraced data-driven results so that we create less of a burden on our taxpayers. I want to thank Michael Bloomberg for his vision in creating the What Works Cities network.”
Honolulu’s selection, along with that of Columbia, South Carolina, Grand Rapids, Michigan, Irving, Texas, and Long Beach, California was announced today by What Works Cities and Results for America, one of the initiative’s five partner organizations and the campaign manager.
“When cities know how to put data at the core of their decision-making, they’re equipped with the tools to best solve local challenges and serve their communities,” said Simone Brody, Executive Director of What Works Cities. “We’re excited to welcome these five cities and very proud to reach our goal of working with 100 cities across the United States.”
With today’s new participating cities, What Works Cities is now partnering with 100 cities that are home to more than 31 million residents and have annual budgets exceeding $104 billion.
“Networking with other mayors and experts across the country is one of the many benefits of being named a member of the What Works Cities initiative, and the City and County of Honolulu plans to take full advantage of the opportunities that are available,” added Mayor Caldwell. “We want to learn more about what delivers proven results and take advantage of the experience of other municipalities on a variety of issues.”
With support from a consortium of expert partners, cities participating in the What Works initiative are identifying more effective ways to evaluate programs and improve performance; optimize resources to serve their communities; and address a range of social challenges – from public safety to affordable housing. What Works Cities participants also join the initiative’s extensive learning network of local leaders and global experts actively sharing best practices for outcomes-focused governance.
The mission of the Honolulu What Works Cities Workgroup is to develop a data management framework and governance process for departments across the City and County of Honolulu to better source, manage, and analyze data to inform key stakeholders, improve decision making, and effectively deliver services to the community. To lay the foundation for this work, the workgroup will undertake a focused project on the topic of chronically homeless persons to demonstrate the potential for this work, and the methods by which it can be achieved.
In addition, Honolulu’s Data Governance mission within the What Works Cities Workgroup is to ensure that the highest quality data are collected, used and made available to key stakeholders through coordinated efforts for the purpose of improving efficiency, protecting privacy and enabling better decision making by the administration and policymakers for the benefit of the citizens of the City and County of Honolulu.
The consortium of expert organizations assembled by Bloomberg Philanthropies to deliver support to cities comprises the Behavioral Insights Team, the Center for Government Excellence at Johns Hopkins University, the Government Performance Lab at the Harvard Kennedy School, Results for America and the Sunlight Foundation.
The five new cities joining What Works Cities today follow 95 cities already participating in the initiative, including: Albuquerque, NM; Anchorage, AK; Arlington, TX; Athens, GA; Augusta, GA; Baltimore, MD; Baton Rouge, LA; Birmingham, AL; Boise, ID; Boulder, CO; Buffalo, NY; Bellevue, WA; Boston, MA; Cambridge, MA; Cape Coral, FL; Cary, NC; Charleston, SC; Chattanooga, TN; Charlotte, NC; Columbia, SC; Corona, CA; Denton, TX; Denver, CO; Des Moines, IA; Downey, CA; Durham, NC; Fargo, ND; Fayetteville, NC; Fort Collins, CO; Fort Lauderdale, FL; Fort Worth, TX; Gilbert, AZ; Glendale, AZ; Grand Rapids, MI; Greensboro, NC; Gresham, OR; Hartford, CT; Hayward, CA; Independence, MO; Indianapolis, IN; Irving, Texas; Jackson, MS; Kansas City, KS; Kansas City, MO; Knoxville, TN; Laredo, TX; Las Vegas, NV; Lewisville, TX; Lexington, KY; Lincoln, NE; Little Rock, AR; Long Beach, CA; Louisville, KY; Madison, WI; Memphis, TN; Mesa, AZ; Miami, FL; Milwaukee, WI; Minneapolis, MN; Modesto, CA; Naperville, IL; Nashville, TN; New Haven, CT; New Orleans, LA; Norfolk, VA; Oklahoma City, OK; Olathe, KS; Orlando, FL; Portland, OR; Providence, RI; Raleigh, NC; Rancho Cucamonga, CA; Riverside, CA; Salinas, CA; Salt Lake City, UT; San Francisco, CA; San Jose, CA; Seattle, WA; Scottsdale, AZ; Saint Paul, MN; Sioux Falls, SD; South Bend, IN; Syracuse, NY; Tacoma, WA; Tempe, AZ; Topeka, KS; Tulsa, OK; Tyler, TX; Victorville, CA; Virginia Beach, VA; Waco, TX; Washington, DC; West Palm Beach, FL; Wichita, KS; and Winston-Salem, NC.

2017.08.29 18:51 WalkingDown46 Beware of Star Energy Partners. Do not apply to a job or do business with this company.

I had an e-mail this morning from a company wanting to recruit me for their business. As a recent college graduate, I am open to new opportunities. However, I do my research on companies. This is a newer company, founded in 2013. I researched the CEO on LinkedIn, and noticed, IMMEDIATELY, he is connected with a guy who offered me a job with his firm, which turn out to be a scam. Already, my concerns became high.
Upon doing further research, I discovered this company performs work to acquire clients for a energy company known as Star Energy Partners, a major power company scam, particularly relevant in the northern region of Illinois (Rockford, Chicago, Naperville, etc.) I knew it sounded familiar because in September, a couple of guys from the company came to my apartment trying to get me to change to their services. They apparently visited every apartment in my building and most in the other building surrounding me, from what the property manager had told me.
The company, in the long run, will produce for you a higher power bill, and the cancellation fee is horribly expensive. They pose as people who say they are acquiring your power company (in my case, ComEd,) but they are simply out to screw customers on the power bills.
Don't know if anyone within this subreddit has had this same experience, but I just wanted to let y'all know about this company in case they attempt to do business with you.

2016.12.11 22:21 MichonMarketing Looking to partner with a few local businesses in the area!

Hey there! I'm a lifelong Naperville resident, and I recently started my own business helping companies get customers from Google, which for a lot of local businesses is their greatest or only source of new customers.
For free, with no strings attached, I will make changes to your website and business listings on Google, Bing, and elsewhere, and use various techniques to get your business starting to get new customers. All of the work provided for this 4 week project would typically cost $1500.
"What's in it for him?" you're probably asking. You're right, something is in it for me. What I want is an honest review at the end of the period that I can use in future promotional material. The work I've done is permanent, and will continue to benefit the company for years.
Whether the business is established or brand new, I will set the business up in front of hungry buyers. I'm only looking for a couple businesses to partner with, after that I have no plans to do this again. If you know of anyone with a business looking to do a lot better on the internet, contact me and let's get started!
[email protected] 331-826-9196
This message will self destruct once I agree to work with the companies that applied.
