For Dell Veterans, Veterans Day Lasts All Year Long

first_imgVeterans Day has been celebrated at Dell in a myriad of ways over Army Veteran Alejandro Rivas’ 19-year career. Currently he works on the Global Talent Management team in HR, but he’s also worked in other areas of Dell, including manufacturing. Celebrations have been inclusive of all areas of Dell and span the country. They range from ceremonial in nature to supporting programs like the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.“I’ve been involved with Veterans Day celebrations over the last 19 years at Dell, and this was prior to having our employee resource groups,” Rivas (pictured above) said. “We raise the flag at our main building, Round Rock One in Texas, and have guest speakers join us to celebrate.”Veterans Employee Resource Group Program Manager Tina Schroer fondly recalled the 2015 celebration.“We had a local high school band perform,” she said. “The community group did an awesome job with planning the event. The military side and the civilians we work with all pulled together.”Navy Lieutenant Commander Cherry Lynch (pictured below), who works in Dell’s Resolution Expert Center said, “A lot of us come in our uniforms, if we can still fit in them!”Hiring, Supporting VetsAt Dell, however, support for our veterans extends far beyond Veterans Day celebrations.Five years ago, EMC was a founding member of the Veterans Job Mission, a small coalition of 11 leading companies committed to hiring 100,000 Veterans by 2020. It’s snowballed and has resulted in hiring more than 340,000 veterans to date.“As a first step into the whole recruiting realm, it’s just been breathtaking,” said Lou Candiello (pictured below), a Marine veteran who is responsible for military recruiting at Dell.Moreover, both Dell and EMC were active participants in the White House’s Joining Forces program prior to integrating this past August. The company committed to hiring 2,000 veterans between now and 2020. The national initiative, which just celebrated five years, was created to expand employment and career development for veterans and military spouses.“Dell EMC was selected to participate in the Joining Forces anniversary celebration at The White House,” Candiello said. “One of our military spouses actually received recognition from the First Lady, which was wonderful.”Yvonne Neal, Federal Services Program Manager and a military spouse, knows firsthand the support Dell gives to vets and spouses.“I was working for Dell when my husband came up on orders to leave. My manager at the time connected me with a federal manager who said, ‘Do you have a laptop? Do you have a phone? You can work anywhere,’” Neal said. “I moved to that team and I stayed for almost five years.”Paying it forward; vets recruiting vetsCandiello feels veterans are an untapped talent resource and is proud Dell recognizes the value they bring to the workforce. In addition to the active military recruiting process, once hired, there are also numerous programs and employee affinity groups to support veterans.“I think that a big part of supporting veterans within the company is the mentoring process,” Brad Johnson, a Navy veteran who works in Dell EMC’s Federal Division said. “We have some very structured programs to help both mentoring and advancement.”Johnson himself (pictured above) was hired through a Navy referral.“Someone I served with on submarines—and who was familiar with my skills and the way that I worked—said, ‘You know what? You should really look at this organization,’” Johnson said. “I now help hiring managers understand what value they get when they hire a veteran into the company and why these people will be successful. The culture here fits. The work ethic fits. The mission support fits.”Rivas (pictured below) agrees the culture is an excellent fit for veterans. Even after 19 years, he has no intention to go anywhere else and is excited that Dell is continuing to push for hiring more veterans, while creating even more support for those who are on board already.“There’s a huge movement now in Dell with regard to the veteran population,” Rivas said. “We have a lot of ex-military people out in the workforce; how do we get them into Dell and not just that, but—taking it a step further—how do we transition them into Dell?”Dell supports veterans through a number of programs, including employee affinity groups at both the national and local levels. The company is hosting celebrations across the country during the week of Veterans Day 2016. Find out more at;</p><p>last_img read more

English football clubs concerned about financial health

first_imgLONDON: Half of clubs across England’s top four football leagues are worried about their financial condition and 43 per cent say they have been approached by outside investors in the last 12 months, as per a report from accountancy and business advisory firm BDO.”Many clubs were already struggling to balance the books, but Covid-19 has accelerated and exacerbated the problem,” said Ian Clayden, BDO’s national head of professional sports. “At club level, as well as working hard to activate new revenue streams, there is a trend towards leveraging future receivables to manage current liquidity constraints. Care needs to be taken of course to secure the future rather than mortgage it and kick the problem into the long grass. Supplementing incomes now will only help in the medium term if action is being taken to dial back player costs – which inevitably take time. “If matches continue to be played behind closed doors for an extended period, we may see a number of clubs, particularly in the lower leagues, at risk of insolvency or takeover in the coming year,” he added. Clubs in England’s top four divisions stood to collectively generate record revenues of more than 6 billion pounds ($7.6 billion) before the 2019/20 season but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the financial struggles have intensified and left some in dire straits, the BDO report further said.

Eric Dungey ranks 5th in the nation in passing but the growth in his running game is noteworthy too

first_img Published on October 6, 2016 at 12:27 am Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds Dino Babers said he wants Eric Dungey to be the Russell Wilson of the Atlantic Coast Conference. He knows Dungey’s legs are a valuable element in the sophomore quarterback’s repertoire. But he also wants Dungey to be smart when he uses them and avoid taking unnecessary hits — something he didn’t do particularly well as a freshman.Late in the first quarter against Notre Dame on Saturday, Dungey held the ball out for running back Moe Neal but then pulled it back and ran around the left side of the offensive line. Before reaching the line of scrimmage, three Fighting Irish defenders surrounded him.Dungey slid to the turf. UND’s Devin Studstill launched himself toward Dungey’s head. The quarterback put his hands on his helmet as he bent over on his knees. Studstill was ejected for targeting and the play was simply a blip amid Dungey’s best rushing performance of the season.“The one time he did the Russell Wilson, he almost got his head taken off,” Babers said.Despite the contact, Dungey did his part by sliding.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Through five games, Syracuse’s (2-3, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) signal caller has been smarter in the running game, Babers said. Dungey is still occasionally at risk when he takes off but has started every game this season and hasn’t missed any time following a hit. He currently ranks fifth in the nation with 1,730 passing yards, but the growth in his running game is noteworthy, too. Dungey leads the Orange with five rushing touchdowns — Neal has SU’s only other rushing score — and ranks third on the team with 116 yards.“I think he’s been giving us exactly what we want,” Babers said. “I think he’s been relatively smart with it.”Last year, Dungey missed four games and parts of more because of several shots to the head. Then-head coach Scott Shafer urged him to throw the ball away rather than take an unnecessary beating.Before the 2016 season, Babers said the Orange’s new coaching staff had to “strip him down and start all over again.” Babers wanted a throw-first quarterback for his Baylor-style offensive scheme.“We need people who can sit in the pocket and deliver the ball to the people we want,” Babers said two days before the first game of the season. “He’s done a nice job of trying to curtail his game to exactly what we need. If he has to take off, he has that ability, but we are trying to keep him in the pocket more.”Jessica Sheldon | Photo EditorWhile Dungey’s carries have increased this year — he’s averaging 12.4 rushes per game compared to 11.4 last year — SU is running significantly more plays on offense as a result of Babers’ no-huddle scheme.Against Notre Dame, Dungey ran 17 times (including two sacks) for a team-high net total of 49 yards. He also ran for three scores, a reflection of a part of Dungey’s game that’s not going away. Dungey said he’s tried to be smarter with his body, even in red zone situations similar to the ones he converted on against UND.Even in a scheme that features more passing, Dungey hasn’t abandoned his running ability. He’s showcased it when the opportunity has arisen and has stayed healthier than last year.“I think he’s much better than he was last year based off the tape that I’ve seen so far,” Babers said, “and I think if he continues to grow, he’ll be better and better at it.” Commentslast_img read more

Steelers vs. Bengals Recap: Don’t play the ‘if’ game

first_imgRunning back Le’Veon Bell (26) runs towards Cincinnati Bengals strong safety George Iloka (43) in the third quarter of an NFL football game on Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Don Wright)After the Steelers manhandled the Bengals on Sunday Night, many were left wondering what could have been. What if the Steelers had played this well all year? What if Pouncey and Foote and others hadn’t been hurt? What if they didn’t start 0-4?Well, those are all the wrong questions to ponder, there are no if’s and re do’s in the world.  The reality of the situation is this, none of those things occurred this year and the team is in the situation they’re in because they didn’t have a backup plan for the “if’s”.The black and gold looked great on Sunday Night, they looked like the team trying to clinch a playoff spot and not a team desperately clinging to their lives. The exposition that Big Ben and Antonio Brown put on was one that proves those two are the best players this team has, without them they’d be vying for the number one pick.On the defensive side of the ball, players like Jason Worilds and Lawrence Timmons stepped up to the plate and were impactful in determining the outcome of the football game. They showed they can be the two centerpieces of the defense moving into 2014 and beyond (if the team can re up Worilds).This game was about pride, it was about seeing who has the competitive fires burning inside them to win a largely meaningless game.  This was an audition for the guys wearing the black and gold to see who was worth keeping next year and who the team should part ways with.It was all of those things but the one thing it was not was the display of a team that should be looked at as a contender who had things go wrong because this or that happened or a team that should be looked at in the ‘what if’ mode.They are what they are; a 6-8 ball club after that win.  They’re a team in the middle of the pack. Middle of the pack teams can on occasion beat good teams but will also lose to the bad ones (see the Oakland, Minnesota and Tennessee games).  Middle of the pack teams play inconsistently, see the Dolphins game just last week and the turnaround the team had this week.  Or just look at the 0-4 start, to winning five of seven to now being 6-8.This team has its flaws this season and that’s ok. All teams go through a rebuild, the failure often comes when a team can’t form an identity and recognize who they really are. That’s what struck this team this year.While they thought they were still a contender this year, they decided to move forward with some aging, overpriced veterans. They should have cut ties with more of the older guys and implemented playing time for the younger generation to gain experience.   The front office refused to accept or believe this team needed a rebuild but classified it as a transition.  In essence they put everything back a year. What should have happened this year will need to happen next.The game last night should be looked upon fondly as it was a great win for the black and gold and very well could have been the final big game several of the old school veterans have together in a Steeler uniform. Just don’t look at it as ‘what if’, look at it as ‘what is’.Mike Pelaia hosts the website Steel Nation Association Covering the Steelers and helping Children’s Hospital All Day Everyday.

It was a lot darker than i thought but it sits well in my own hair. Great for when you want to change your hair style without the hassle of going to the hairdressers. The quality is much better than i expected for the price and it stays in place.

I bought this because i’ve been thinking about cutting my bangs for a while but i wasn’t sure how i was going to look, and this clip bangs worked like a charm, now that i see how they look on me i’m definitely gonna go for the real bangs lol. Although it’s not real hair and shines in the light, no one can tell whether it’s real or not if wearing at night. I was quite surprised with the good quality and even ordered the full length fringe (9 inches) and another blond one for my mum. Very recommend if you just want a a quick change in your style. Ordered for my 12 year old daughter who cannot decide whether or not to get her fringe cut back in. Great fun and could save some heartache. Really effective product, bit in the shiny side but a fun hair accessory. Matches my hair and sits wonderfully. Really good looks real but one of the clips was broke. Really good looks real but one of the clips was broke so had to send it back. Good value for money as some sites was charging a lot more money for same thing. I ordered this as i didn’t want to cut my hair and have a fringe but wanted the option for one. I’m having to send the item back as it’s such a dark reddy brown that it doesn’t match my hair colour at all. However, the hair itself was soft and silky. Felt like a good quality for the price.

Also, the join is quite obvious but i hide it with headbands and it looks perfectly fine. I’ve been receiving compliments all day and i might wear this as an everyday thing rather than committing to a permanent fringe. It feels and looks quite synthetic but no one has noticed – those who i tell its fake have said its obvious if you’re looking out for it. It was a lot darker than i thought but it sits well in my own hair. Good product and fits well with the colour of my natural hair.
