Corporate Whistleblower Center Targets Federal Contractors Over Billing The Federal Government And The Urge Insiders To Call Them About Whistleblower Reward Programs


(PRWEB) July 23, 2013

The Corporate Whistleblower Center is urging a whistleblower with significant proof any type of contractor providing services to federal government that is also involved in multi million over billing, or fraud to call them about what could be extremely lucrative whistleblower rewards, provided the over billing, or fraud is in the millions of dollars. The types of contractors could be defense contractors, shipyards, transportation contractors, maritime contractors, environmental super fund clean up contractors in places like Hanford, Washington, federal highway contractors, low income housing contractors, Internet universities, food service contractors, food procurement contractors, security contractors, high tech contractors providing computer programing services to federal agencies, school lunch program contractors, wind, or solar power contractors, or banks, or mortgage servicing companies defrauding the federal government on FHA, or VA mortgages. The Corporate Whistle Blower Center says, "We know there are thousands, if not tens of thousands of US citizens, who possess the full set of party pictures on their employer defrauding, and or over billing the federal government, and aside from being the patriotic thing to do, stepping forward could produce a substantial whistleblower reward, provided the wrongdoing is in the millions of dollars, and the proof is well documented, and is is very easy to prove." http://CorporateWhistleblowerCenter.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center:

Do not go to the government first, if you are a major whistleblower. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Major whistleblowers frequently go to the federal government thinking they will help. Its a huge mistake. Frequently government officials could care less, or they are incompetent."
Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower's information could destroy any prospect for a reward.
Do not try to force a government contractor, or corporation to come clean to the government about their wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "Fraud is so rampant among federal contractors, that any suggestion of exposure might result in an instant job termination, or harassment of the whistleblower. We say, come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think its sufficient, we will help find the right law firms, to assist in advancing your information."

The Corporate Whistleblower Center wants to emphasize there are high quality whistleblowers in every state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. Any type of insider, or employee, who possesses significant proof of their employer, or a government contractor fleecing the federal government is encouraged to contact to Corporate Whistleblower Center anytime at 866-714-6466, or they can contact the group via their web site at http://CorporateWhistleBlowerCenter.Com

Nationwide Vehicle Wraps Manufacturer, JMR Graphics, Responds to Article About Car Wrap Ad Scams

Central Islip, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2012

On November 17th, Nationwide Vehicle Wraps Manufacturer and printer, JMR Graphics, comments on an article regarding consumers becoming victims of car advertisement scams.

In the CBS Denver article, Denver resident, Laurel Dakini, received an email from someone claiming to represent Rock Star energy drinks. In the email, Mrs. Dakini was offered $ 350 a month to wrap her car with the Rock Star logo. She stated that shed seen car wraps before and thought they looked good. I thought itd be a little way to make some extra money, Dakini stated.

The article mentions that vehicle wrap is one of the most effective forms of advertising in the market today. One car wrap garners between 30,000 and 70,000 views per day.

Dakini sent pictures of her vehicle via email correspondence with the supposed Rock Star representative. She said that she became suspicious of the offer when she received emails with directions on how to transfer funds. They began asking me to wire money before this check even arrived, Dakini stated. They were telling exactly how much to wire, where, how. And thats when I got a little suspicious. Dakinis suspicions were confirmed when her bank refused to cash the $ 1,850 check she received. Thats when I went, Im sure something is wrong.

In response to the article, Katherine Winkler, a JMR Graphics representative, states, There are legitimate companies that will pay you for advertisement space on your car because driven media is incredibly cost-effective way to monetize business. Katherine goes on to caution, However, people need to be wary of being contacted directly. Companies want people who will be driving in high-traffic areas. They post ads online for people to respond to. Generally, if youre contacted by a big company asking you to wrap your car, then you can be almost certain its a scam. However, smaller companies in your area might approach you directly, if they have seen you driving around for a while. Katherine adds, always err on the side of caution.

JMR Graphics is an award winning Nationwide 3M Certified Manufacturer of Graphics for over a quarter of a century. We specialize in branding companies through Fleet Graphics, Vehicle Wraps, Architectural Wall Graphics, Promotional Window Clings, Floor Graphics, Event Signage and much more.

Atlanta Surgeon for LASIK Eye Surgery Publishes Study on Website About Car Technology to Monitor Drowsiness


Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 26, 2012

Board certified Atlanta LASIK surgeon, Dr. Farooq Ashraf of the Atlanta Vision Institute, just published a study on his website about car manufacturing companies now incorporating technology to monitor alertness and drowsiness of passengers behind the wheel. This finding indicates that drivers will now have the opportunity to know their level of alertness on the road in case they need to refrain from driving.

According to research published in the International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications, the pupil of the eye is also a great way to measure how alert a person is, specifically while driving. For example, dilated pupils and infrequent blinking are indicators of a very low degree of alertness and possibly drowsiness. With this type of information, drivers wont need high-tech equipment to make them aware of their alertness levels.

As a skilled ophthalmologist, Dr. Ashraf has extensive knowledge and experience with the pupils and other eye related matters, such as glaucoma, astigmatism, cataracts, corneal diseases, macular degeneration, low vision and more.

My goal is to help people see clearly and restore their eye health, says Dr. Ashraf. At the Atlanta Vision Institute, we possess only the most advanced and safest technology for eye exams and LASIK surgery, like the advanced, fifth-generation IntraLase iFS Laser. Here at the Atlanta Vision Institute, we have the experience and technology you can trust.

Dr. Ashraf has performed over 40,000 LASIK surgeries in Atlanta, Georgia and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, helping to make him one of the most experienced LASIK surgeons worldwide. He performed advanced cornea and refractive surgery training at the famous Wilmer Eye Institute of Johns Hopkins University, which has been ranked as one of the best medical institutions nationwide. For more information about Dr. Ashraf at the Atlanta Vision Institute or to book an appointment, call 770-622-2488 today or visit the website at atlanta2020.com.

Dogington Post Receives Threats About Controversial New iPhone Game


Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) November 08, 2012

Dog Pile Maze is an addictive, high speed whimsical game from the creators of Dogington Post. Based on a concept that dog owners can relate to intimately, players must navigate a maze, dodge furniture and spills, and avoid the cat from hell to gather their dog-walking necessities before getting the dog outside to do his deed.

Weve designed the game with a lot of social appeal, said Pegi Dahl, Creative Director for Dogington Post. And that includes having the gross-out factor that comes along with a dog pooping in the house!

Dog Pile Maze features professional graphics and animation, realistic sound effects, retina display support and the ability to share wins and losses via social media.

The dog news site turned to the crowdfunding site, Kickstarter, to help raise funds to complete their game, improve its production value and beef up marketing and promotion after the games completion.

We initially focused on the edgy, humorous, gross-out stuff that makes our game so unique and what we know is going to make it a success once it hits the App Store, said Dahl. However, we didnt expect that our little Kickstarter campaign was so controversial and offensive!

Just days after launching their campaign, Dogington Post received angry, threatening emails regarding the nature of their project. One angry consumer from Kansas wrote, As the mother of 3 young kids, I'm disgusted by the growing lack of integrity by game developers. Children are going to be playing these games. How about something educational and clean, not something gross and crude!

In response, the dog news site softened their approach and restructured their Kickstarter campaign to focus on the slobbery reward the player gets from their dog, rather than the disgusting consolation prize their dog leaves for them when they lose.

We havent changed our game. Its still destined to be a viral hit, said Dahl. You cant make everybody happy, all the time. But if we can appeal to a broader audience to help get our little game funded, that is our ultimate goal.

Dogington Post developed the Dog Pile Maze Game in an effort to create a revenue stream that can support funding to dog shelters and rescue organizations. People who pledge support to the Kickstarter campaign will not only get any number of rewards based on their level of support, but will also be supporting the efforts of Dogington Post in helping rescue dogs.

Dog Piles Kickstarter campaign is scheduled to run for 30 days and will end on Friday Nov 30, 10:34am EST. Kickstarter campaigns function under an all-or-nothing funding model so if Dog Pile Maze doesnt reach its goal of $ 20,000 pledged at the end of 30 days, no funding is received.

New Book Exposes the Truth About the Federal Governments Debt


SARASOTA, Fla. (PRWEB) November 07, 2012

Dont worry about the debt of the Federal Government. Its debt is no debt. It can be wiped out by a few strokes on the computer keyboard and by policies which keep inflation locked at Zero percent. This is just one of the revelations which the economist Jes Rau offers in his groundbreaking treatise, Its All the Banks Fault. After reading this book, readers will find themselves asking, How could we all have been so blind? How could we all obediently have believed in the mythos of the Klapperstorch who out of thin air brings us the newborn money and drops it on the premises of the banks?

One of the reasons behind this distorted view of reality is the fact that most economists do not understand the true nature of money. This includes the great John Maynard Keynes who regarded central bank money as the only alternative to currency based on gold. This may appear logical if Keynes view that only a short term analysis of the economic process matters since in the long run we are all dead is adopted. Here the grand master was wrong. Dead wrong. Rau quips. Because of his narrow vision, Keynes overlooked the changes in the quality of money taking place over centuries due to the de-golding of money which freed the economy from the bondage of the barbaric metal but destabilized the economy.

In his book the author finally solves the riddle of Kondratieffs Long Waves. By making readers understand the past, he makes them understand the present. While the politicians try to cure the symptoms of the current malaise, Rau addresses its main cause. It is all the banks fault because in a system of Central Bank money the banks misdirect money setting in motion inflation, disinflation and deflation. Rau makes a powerful appeal to replace central bank money with money which behaves like gold- mint money that is.

Finally Rau published his treatise as a book under the title Die Banken sind an Allem Schuld. Reading this will give an eerie feeling of premonition- especially when the reader becomes aware that it was written more than 20 years ago. What Rau foresaw happened. Rau does not claim to clairvoyant, though. His predictions are all based on pure logic.

Listen to me, Rau implores. He is confident that this time he will be heard because the English version of the book may finally reach open-minded people in the whole world who will understand that the author offers an escape from looming disaster and can lead the way to a new prosperous world for everyone, a world without inflation. This book is enlightening, prophetic and transforming, a must-read for all thinking people. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.

About the Author

The economist Jes Rau is the publisher of two German-American newspapers, the New York Staats-Zeitung and the California Staats-Zeitung. He lives with his wife, Margita, and their four children Marlene, Maximilian, Juliane and Jes in Sarasota, Florida.

What Design, Hacking and Talent Agents Can Teach HR about Recruiting


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2012

Gild, which brings meritocracy to HR through innovative recruiting technologies, today announced the formation of a new Advisory Board featuring a provocative mix of perspectives and expertise with which to guide the company.

From hacking to human resources, talent acquisition to design and open source programming, the new board includes luminaries from inside and outside of Silicon Valley. Armed with this diverse mix of innovation, insight and expertise, their mission is to challenge the status quo of recruiting and reinvent the hiring process for developers, technologists and beyond.

Gilds new Advisory Board brings together minds and backgrounds not commonly seen sitting at the HR table," said Sheeroy Desai, CEO and co-founder, Gild. "We purposely sought out expertise that would offer us and the industry a transformative perspective, and accelerate our growth through real differentiation."

The initial five-member board includes:

Amelia Merrill - VP, Talent Acquisition at RMS. Currently the head of talent acquisition at RMS, Amelia Merrill is developing a new employment branding strategy based on brand triangulation that will include a strong focus on social media and out-of-the-box ways to engage the RMS employee base and candidates. Prior to RMS, she was at Juniper Networks, WebMethods, and VeriSign. Her HR career has varied greatly from creation, development, and implementation of M&A and workforce reduction programs to HR business partner to talent acquisition leader.

Zach Holman - Developer Advocate at GitHub. In addition to his role as an evangelist and developer at GitHub, Zach Holman is a blogger, open source hacker, and nontraditional screencast filmer. Mr. Holman achieved national media fame when he introduced Facelette, a three-hour app experiment that married Chatroutlette with FaceTime. He continues to be a sought-after speaker within the developer community, where he has presented at Airbnb, the Ruby Conference, and most recently keynoted the 2012 BACON Conference.

Clement Mok Acclaimed Brand and Design Guru. Clement Mok is an award winning designer, digital pioneer, software publisher, app developer, author, and design patent holder. A former creative director at Apple, Clement founded multiple successful design-related businesses, including: Studio Archetype, CMCD, and NetObjects. He was the Chief Creative Officer of Sapient, a Trustee of Art Center College of Design and the national president of AIGA. Currently, hes a founding partner of SUGARFISH and SameSurf as well as start-ups on a variety of design planning and user experience related projects. He is a 2008 AIGA Medalist, has been published internationally and has received hundreds of awards from professional organizations and publications including I.D. magazines 40 Most Influential Designers, and Chief Executive Magazine, which named him among 1998s Tech 100 CEOs.

Austin Cooke - VP, Human Resources & Talent Acquisition at Vistaprint. As Vice President of Human Resources & Talent Acquisition, Austin Cooke is responsible for all aspects of Vistaprints efforts to attract, grow and retain the best talent in the e-commerce industry. Prior to Vistaprint, Austin was VP, Global Recruiting at Sapient, overseeing the company's growth from 85 to over 4,500 people from 1994 to 2006. He currently serves on the advisory boards of the Human Capital Institute and Monster.com.

Eric Lane - HR & Staffing Leader. Eric Lane is the founder of Retirement v1.0, a consulting firm for HR and talent acquisition. Before launching Retirement v1.0, Eric served as VP of Human Resources at Intuit (2001-2011) and was a Vice President with Icarian (1997-2001) a Kleiner Perkins funded Workforce Planning service. Additionally, Mr. Lane served as CEO and Co-founder of CONCENTRICS Management, Inc. and has held senior HR roles at Silicon Graphics, Advanced Micro Devices and National Semiconductor.

The advisory board will be important to Gild as the company continues to develop more tools and services for recruiters and organizations seeking exceptional talent, such as the recently announced Gild Source talent recruitment platform.

I, along with my colleagues, am excited to bring our varied experiences within the HR, tech and design communities to Gild and look forward to rolling out new offerings that hiring teams and managers rely on, said Amelia Merrill, VP, Talent Acquisition at RMS. Technology like that which Gild provides is driving the identification, engagement and recruitment of todays best candidates for the most influential companies.

Weve worked hard to assemble a non-traditional advisory board, added Desai. We prize de facto HR experience, so we gathered together the leading voices in talent acquisition. But we also sought out the most creative minds in design and development. What weve built is an eclectic team of expert advisors who share Gilds belief: That emphasizing meritocracy is the key to successful recruiting.
