The business vision of Colorado Creative Music consists of three components – Core Value, Core Purpose and Visionary Goals (Thompson, Strickland, 2003).

Core values of CCM are quality, creativity, and excellent customer service. The core purpose of this organization is to make more people listen to classical and light acoustic music and admire it. As for the visionary goals, the strategic dilemma of the business arises. Thus, one of the visionary goal is to make the music produced, played and recorded by CCM musicians, heard by larger audience. The other visionary goal that doesn’t completely go in line with the first one is to win the large custom market for the company’s products and services. The collision here is in the primary value and target of the business: in the first case the attention is attached to the product, music, while the second one is focused on the development of the organization. This dilemma is the subject of strategic choice of the organization, which will be outlined and discussed later.

Internet is not only alternative way to traditional methods of music distribution, but also a great opportunity for artists and music-recording companies to expose these products to broad public. The advantages of such means are low cost of entrance and enormous size of potential customers market. Traditional chain of music distribution includes such components as writer/performer, publisher, musical instruments company, live performances, venue equipment and services, recording, studio equipment and services, recorded performances such as night clubs, bars, business music, broadcast, film and music videos, and retail. These are traditional stages through which the song or other musical product must pass to get to the final customer. Internet makes this chain of distribution shorter and simpler, and therefore internet-based promotion, advertisement and distribution can be considered a new business model to base the business on.

Hospice Care: The Misconception and the Reality

In the dialogue below, Lynda tells us about her challenges caring for her father who was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Like many of my clients who have not been familiar with the benefits of Hospice and Palliative care, Lynda struggled with understanding how Hospice could help her family and that is not about giving up on your loved one but rather focusing on their quality of life for them and their family.

We are Hospice of the Golden Isles, Inc., and we provide quality hospice care to those in Brunswick, GA who need it. Our team is dedicated to providing each patient with individualized care that meets their unique needs. We believe that everyone should have access to quality hospice care, regardless of their ability to pay. Contact us today to learn more about our services.

The Interview

Lynda: Well first off I’d like to mention because it’s true that nobody can tell the future in advance. And the single most significant thing that I know we have control over is how we respond to things. And so information is key and my first thought when you asked me what I wish I knew was about the great benefits that hospice could have been to me and my family.

Hospice of the Golden Isles, Inc. provides compassionate hospice care for those with a life-limiting illness. We believe in providing our patients with individualized care that respects their wishes and meets their needs. Our team of experienced nurses, doctors, and social workers are dedicated to helping our patients and their families through this difficult time. If you or a loved one is facing a life-limiting illness, please call us to learn more about our hospice services.

My father Lou was diagnosed with prostate cancer and passed away four years ago. We learned that he would not die necessarily from it but that he could potentially live with it. We didn’t realize how bad the disease could progress. We were kind of banking on him being able to function like they said with some measure of health, but in the last few months of his life the disease got really bad. He couldn’t eat, he had horrible time within incontinence and he was in pain most of the time.

At Hospice of the Golden Isles, Inc., we provide compassionate end-of-life care to Brunswick, GA residents. From our skilled nurses and counselors to our volunteers and clergy, we are dedicated to providing the best possible care for our patients and their families. Whether you’re interested in hospice services for yourself or a loved one, we would be honored to serve you.

Near the end my father’s nurse, he had a home nurse that would come in and visit, she told him that he should probably put his affairs in order. Now he was very good at hiding his pain and so we were kind of shocked to hear that, and we didn’t really want to hear it. I knew about hospice she hinted around about hospice, but what I thought was that that meant we were resigning my father to die. I thought that they would come in and would take over and that it would be frightening.

Hospice of the Golden Isles, Inc. provides compassionate care to those facing a life-limiting illness. Our team of specialists offers personalized treatment plans and support services to ensure that patients and their families receive the best possible care. We are proud to offer convenient, in-home care for patients in Brunswick, GA and the surrounding areas. With our experienced team of nurses, social workers, and counselors, we are dedicated to providing comfort and compassion during this difficult time. For more information or to schedule a consultation, call us today!

I had a friend who is a caregiver professional, and she would tell my family some things that he was experiencing as far as the behavior. And behaviors are those that are dying. And it was on point with what he was experiencing. But getting back to hospice I just was very against it because I didn’t really understand the concept.

Our Hospice of the Golden Isles, Inc. provides expert, compassionate care to those with a life-limiting illness. Our team of skilled professionals is dedicated to helping our patients and their families live every day to the fullest. From providing comfort and support to easing pain and symptoms, we are here for you when you need us most.

We then started operating in denial that we could take care of him and we would do what he needed. Since that time, I attended a caregiver conference where I heard a presentation about hospice and discovered that I was very wrong in what I thought about hospice care. They not only support the person who’s ill with hands on care and additional monitoring, but they support the family by answering hard questions on how to prepare, how to cope with what’s going on, how to respond to the behaviors and the physical changes of the person that is dying.

Hospice even helps after you loose the family member by contacting the funeral home. I didn’t know that they did these very, very helpful precious little things that would work with the family of the person who was terminal. And then I found out that it doesn’t mean a death sentence. These individuals are diagnosed as terminally ill but depending on the disease and depending on a lot of different variables they can function to the point where they could be taken off of hospice care for a period of time.

I thought once you were in care they would again come in like gangbusters and just run things until the person died. And I didn’t like that idea. But like I said, I was wrong, wrong, wrong. Being the point person in my family and rejecting the idea of even looking into hospice, I wound up having to deal with a lot of things, on top of my own grieving, that I would not have had to deal with if I had the help of hospice.

I’m very grateful to know now, but Lord I wish I had known what I know now then so that I would have been able to have the handholding I needed. I needed direction. I needed everybody to stop looking at me and asking me what’s next.

Lisa: Right instead of you being the main focus, you would have the chance to spend the time with your father…
Lynda: Exactly.

Lisa:… and go through the grieving process and be supported by others through hospice. And I’m so happy that you brought this up today because many people look at hospice as being a death sentence. That word is scary. But they don’t realize the wonderful support services that can be given. And you brought up such a great point the fact that people don’t have this because they start off with hospice it doesn’t mean they stay with hospice to the end. They might be able to then be on their own with their family, if they are doing better like you mentioned recovering.

Thank you so much. I really appreciate you being here today to share with others what you wish that you knew.

Lynda: Well I really hope that it helps someone to consider that you don’t have to do everything yourself, that there is help out there. And I know and I’m very grateful Lisa that you have this kind of service so that people can hear about it, because again without knowledge you don’t have the opportunity to make a better choice for yourself.

And so what I went through I hope nobody has to go through. And as I’m taking care of right now, the caregiver for my mom, I’m very grateful to have that information in my mental file. She’s doing well but it was never something that was necessary, even for other people I would tell them think about it, look into it, don’t be afraid. Just find out, just find out about it. So thanks again for the opportunity to share.

This is why it is vital for you to find a local locksmith long before an emergency such as being locked out of the car or house, occurs in Maryland.

Ask about costs for specific services. These can include being locked out of your home. Or you might want to mention that you have left your keys in your car. Again, a reputable locksmith will be able to give a possible cost and may even ask for the make and model of your car.

Be sure the phone number and address match and that the location is legitimate. It is worth driving by the address and making sure it is not an empty lot or closed storefront.

Make sure the locksmith will give a written estimate. If not, look elsewhere. No locksmith should have you sign any blank papers for possible charges before work is done.

If you are in an emergency situation and do not have time to find a locksmith ahead of time, look for specific signs of a scam artist. Always ask for identification and be aware that you may have to provide identification as well. This only makes sense because a good locksmith does not want to open locks that do not belong to the owner of the house or vehicle.

If you get lowball estimates given over the phone and sky high prices after the work is done, you may have been scammed. Drilling the lock may also not be necessary, particularly if a new one is put in, adding to the cost. Of course, once you have found a company you trust, stick with them. There are simply too many others who will take advantage of you or are not based locally.

Due to their durable and versatile nature, asbestos materials were used widely in construction and manufacturing for most of the 20th century. Today, it is widely understood that asbestos is an extremely harmful substance. However, this was not always known. Even minimal inhalation of these asbestos fibers can develop into serious, and even fatal, conditions. In 1918, The United States Department of Labor issued a bulletin stating that there was an “urgent need for more qualified extensive investigation” into the severe harm caused by asbestos. Nevertheless, many industries kept using asbestos.

For decades, construction workers, vehicle mechanics, shipyard workers, electricians, and others employed in the building trades did not realize the danger, as they were exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. Even now, workers renovating or demolishing old buildings may encounter asbestos. The danger was not limited those who directly handled the asbestos. If a worker had substantial exposure to asbestos, his or her co-worker or spouse also was vulnerable to asbestos-related illness.

Eventually scientific research confirmed the life-threatening risks caused by exposure to airborne asbestos fibers. However, companies still ignored the danger, and continued to make and use products containing asbestos, until it was banned during the latter part of the 20th century. Asbestos was used widely in heavy industry, as well as insulation in hair dryers, electrical wiring, cement, paper, roofing materials, floorboards, and hundreds of other common items. Despite the legal ban on new uses, over one million Americans are endangered by exposure to existing asbestos sources every year.

Asbestos Removal

Asbestos still exists in many older buildings, including schools, hospitals, airports, and factories across Michigan. From skyscrapers to residential buildings, asbestos continues to threaten the health of unsuspecting citizens.

Removal of asbestos is a complex process. Special precautions are necessary, to avoid release of asbestos fibers into the surrounding environment. Otherwise, the asbestos will endanger anyone in the area, who inhales or ingests its odorless and tasteless microscopic fibers. The danger is great, because any amount of asbestos can be harmful. For these reasons, there is a conflict between those who push for removal of asbestos from existing structures, and those who oppose it, if it is unlikely to enter building ventilation systems.

Some companies and government agencies arrange for asbestos removal to prevent public exposure, while others do so to avoid potential litigation. Still other projects are driven by legislation or public outcry for asbestos removal from public buildings, including many older schools across the country.

Mesothelioma and Other Asbestos Diseases

Three serious health conditions may result from exposure to even a small amount of airborne asbestos fibers. All three conditions result from inhaling the fibers, which become embedded in the lungs or other parts of the body. It can take years for symptoms of any of these asbestos illness to appear. Some experts believe that no symptoms appear for more than a decade after exposure. In some cases, it takes even longer for the illness to become evident.
