Lynchburg, VA (PRWEB) January 18, 2012

Liberty Universitys mens racquetball team will host its second tournament at The Sports Racket in Lynchburg this weekend with up to eight college teams, including Duke University and Virginia Tech.

In its first season, the team has brought awareness of the sport to Liberty University as well as to the community and the Sports Racket, said Kirk Handy, director of Club Sports.

He said more than 60 student-athletes came to Libertys home courts, located about 15 minutes from campus, for the first tournament in October 2011. Players, coaches and spectators filled the upper-level viewing room to watch the players compete on five courts.

The 35-year-old indoor tennis and racquetball facility also includes five tennis courts, a locker room and a gym. It is open for student and community use, including over 300 members. It was donated to Liberty in February 2011 by Sherwin Cook, a member of Libertys Board of Trustees.

The next racquetball tournament, held this Friday through Sunday (Jan. 20-22), will feature teams from the Mid-Atlantic Conference, including the University of Virginia, University of North Carolina, Roanoke College, Appalachian State University, North Carolina State University, University of Maryland, The College of William & Mary, Duke and Virginia Tech. The tournament is free and open to the public.

There are currently nine players on Libertys roster. Head coach Danny Rodriguez said the team is gaining popularity.

The players go back to their dorms, and they talk about whats going on with all of their friends, he said. Youll see a lot of college students who are playing racquetball in the evenings. In fact, Ive had a few ladies email me and ask me when theyre going to have a team.

Due to growing interest, a womens team will be formed this semester and will be competing in Fall 2012.

Liberty University, located in Lynchburg, Va., is the worlds largest Christian university. More than 12,000 students attend classes on its 6,500-acre residential campus and more than 61,000 study in its thriving online education program.

DTT Surveillance Installs 1,300+ McDonalds Subscribers

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 18, 2012

DTT has been working closely with the McDonalds brand since the companys inception in 1999. Since then, DTT has become the leading provider of surveillance technology, Managed Services and Loss Prevention solutions for the restaurant industry, with over 27,000 locations installed to date.

With regards to the McDonalds brand specifically, by end of year, 2011 DTT surpassed 1,300 McDonalds subscribers across the country. McDonalds owner operator, Christian Sandoval said I know that they are looking out for my business in their personal and professional relationship with my company and their use of the best technology available. With their state of the art cameras and SmartAudit tool they have saved me thousands of dollars every year.

For McDonalds operator, Rick Crady, DTT caught theft in the very first store where we installed a system. From the very beginning, the SmartAudits helped us to catch fraudulent activity at the register. The amount of money we saved easily paid for our system and quickly convinced us to install DTT at all our stores. We soon caught theft at other stores and found that employees had stolen quite a large sum of money much more than enough to pay for the systems.

Thomas Moran, Executive Vice President at DTT said, Our long term partnership with the McDonalds enterprise reinforces DTTs marketplace value for hospitality locations. By focusing on those critical inspection areas for restaurant operations, we answer vital questions related to who, how, when and what occurs on a daily basis with video validation.

DTT President and founder, Sam Naficy added, I echo the sentiment and am tremendously grateful to the thousands of franchisees who have been unyielding in their support for DTT.

One in Three Consumers Consider Highly Trained Employees the Most Important Factor When Making a Luxury Purchase

Toronto, Ontario, Canada (PRWEB) January 17, 2012

Empathica Inc., a leading provider of Customer Experience Management (CEM) solutions to some of the worlds most respected brands, announced today that its Consumer Insights Panel survey of 5,000 U.S. and Canadian consumers found that nearly a third of consumers consider highly knowledgeable and well-trained employees as the most important element of their luxury purchase experience.

Survey results also showed that consumers are very willing to walk out of a luxury retail store if they are not receiving the one-on-one attention they need. In fact, three out of four consumers said they buy either nothing or less than what they would normally purchase if there are not enough employees in the store to assist them.

Despite the importance of individual attention at luxury retailer stores, many consumers think todays brands arent delivering. Only 38% of consumers said they receive better customer service in luxury retail than in non-luxury retail. On the other hand, if employees are eager to serve customers, a full 80% of survey respondents said it would have a positive impact on their perception of the brand and affect their future business with the store.

Retailers can no longer view the customer experience as a series of brief, disconnected interactions, especially those in luxury retail, said Emmanuel Probst, VP of Retail at Empathica. The customer experience is a journey, where opinions are formed and decisions are made that ultimately lead to whether or not the customer will buy a particular product from a particular retailer. If employees are poorly trained and lack essential knowledge on the products, customers have no problem walking out of the store empty-handed.

Top Luxury Service Elements that Consumers Value, From Most Important to Least Important

1. Highly knowledgeable and well-trained employees

2. One-on-one customer service

3. Brand exclusivity

4. Welcoming store atmosphere

5. Many employees available to serve them

If luxury retailers dont focus on employee training and delivering one-on-one service, the penalty can potentially be very high to the brand, according to Andi Needham, Retail Practice Lead at Axsium Group, a workforce management consulting practice.

Up until now, managers have had a difficult time really articulating a direct link between the brand experience and how staff need to serve customers to meet their expectations, said Needham. A link exists, however, and retailers are absolutely seeking guidance for how to positively change employee behaviors and achieve more consistency in their service execution. Empathica survey results showed that luxury retail employees are generally doing a good job when they are fully engaged with customers, but its not happening enough. And its not happening consistently. The lack of available and empowered associates is still an issue.

Steven Malman Law Keeps on Growing

Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) January 17, 2012

Personal injury law firm Steven J. Malman & Associates PC is once again expanding its Chicago offices to better serve clients.

Founded in 1994, the firm made its first move into larger accommodations in 2000 and then took an 8,000 square-foot space at the downtown intersection of Randolph and Wells streets in 2010. As 2011 draws to a close, with a newly installed bronze plaque rechristening the building under the firms name, Malman Law is announcing the addition of 1,500 square feet to its existing space for new offices and administrative-staff areas.

This is all about serving our clients, noted founder and namesake Steve Malman. The most important thing we do is provide exemplary customer service, and we do that by keeping our clients happy and resolving their cases as quickly as we can.

That means we need the right staff to meet those needs, including gathering clients medical records and bills and performing all sorts of critical research as efficiently as possible, he added. And that means bringing in more staff as necessary, and the more staff we bring in, the more space we require.

In addition to providing more elbow room, Malman Law has used this latest expansion as a springboard to completely upgrade its overall office environment, including state-of-the-art conference rooms and a host of technological niceties such as new computers, phones and plasma-screen televisions.

These additions dont just look good theyre critical to the services we provide, Steven Malman noted. Being the best law firm is not only about having the best legal minds. In addition to the best personnel, you need the best tools and the best working environment.

When clients come to these offices, they sense immediately the professionalism and dedication of the staff, he added. That starts with the impressive environment.

The environment is not the only thing thats impressive about Malman Law. With numerous seven -digit settlements to its credit, the firm is a member of the Top Trial Lawyers of Americas Million Dollar Advocates Forum and has been rated A-plus by the Better Business Bureau, which accredited the firm in September 2011 and has never received a complaint about Malman Law or any of its staff.

The firm has successfully resolved over 8,000 cases since 1994 and boasts a 95-percent out-of-court settlement rate. It set high-water marks in 2011 for new cases, resolved cases and total settlement valuation; it also welcomed a host of new attorneys, paralegals and administrative staffers in 2011 and its not done expanding yet. Malman Laws founder said he plans to add at least two new attorneys and two new paralegals in 2012, making the additional space at 205 West Randolph Street even more critical.

The new space will help accommodate the firms Nursing Home Team, an elite squad of attorneys and administrative staff focused exclusively on cases of abuse and neglect inside Chicago-area elder-care facilities, and Malman Laws 24/7 Rapid Response Team, widely acknowledged as Chicagos first 24-hour hotline staffed by licensed attorneys.

Among the uniquely qualified staffers now calling Malman Law home are a former physician (and law school graduate) who provides expert medical reviews and a former defense attorney who specialized in nursing homes. These hyper-focused experts add depth and refinement to the firms growing team of legal professionals.

A third of our staff is dedicated to nursing home cases, a third is dedicated to workers compensation claims and a third is dedicated to other sorts of personal injury cases, everything from automobile accidents to construction-site injuries to dog bites, Steven Malman said. Thanks to this unparalleled level of expertise, were very busy. And were only getting busier, because we get so many word-of-mouth referrals.

So much of our business comes from referrals from existing or older clients, the attorney added. Thats a reflection of not only our legal skills, but our excellent customer service. And as the practice continues to grow by leaps and bounds, these physical expansions become more important.

About Malman Law

A graduate of the University of Iowa and the School of Law at Loyola University-Chicago, attorney Steven Malman celebrated his 20th year of practice in November 2011. He launched the Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates PC in 1994 with just himself, one secretary and one assistant, and has since grown the firm to include seven attorneys and over a dozen paralegals and support staff. Malman Law has successfully resolved over 8,000 cases primarily in the areas of workers compensation and personal injury and boasts a 95-percent out-of-court settlement rate, making it one the most successful firms serving Illinois Cook, Lake, Dupage and Will counties.

Charity Is Not Greek to Dennis Flint

Tallahassee, Florida (PRWEB) January 15, 2012

Dennis Flint marked two special anniversaries this week: one year as a restaurateur, and six months as a volunteer at Dishing Out Hope.

The 38-year-old restaurateur realized a lifelong dream when he opened the doors to his Spyro Grille in January 2011. But Dennis Flint, who studied at the Florida Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach, said something was nagging at him from the moment he debuted his restaurant, even though the eatery which specializes in Greek and Mediterranean dishes was successful from the day we opened.

At first, Dennis Flint couldnt put his finger on what was bothering him. But by mid-summer, with the tourist season in full swing and his new business sizzling, he realized what it was.

Driving to the restaurant every day, I would pass Dishing Out Hope, Dennis Flint said. And sometimes, the line was out the door.

Even with a new, busy restaurant to occupy him, he couldnt continue turning a blind eye to the soup kitchen and its clients. He even tried taking a different route to work, Dennis Flint noted, but the knowledge that he had a special talent that might be especially useful to a soup kitchen wouldnt go away.

While he studied professional cooking at the Florida Culinary Institute, Dennis Flint credits his understanding of Mediterranean cooking to his mother, Adonia, and her brother, Uncle Niko. He also credits his mother and uncle with instilling in him a sense of charity and caring for others, so one day in July the chef stopped on his way to work and asked the operators of Dishing Out Hope if they needed a hand.

They did indeed. The soup kitchen relied on just two cooks, a $ 500 monthly budget and as many donations as local individuals, restaurants, markets and churches could muster to provide some 350 hot lunches, six days a week, for homeless adults and low-income families. All told, Dishing Out Hope serves over 9,000 meals a month and its operators were thrilled that a professional chef was willing to lend a hand.

Dennis was a godsend, said Stacey Blackley, who along with her partner, Mellisa Bohm, opened Dishing Out Hope in 2005. Weve always struggled to meet demand, whether it was obtaining enough food to prepare or having enough time to prepare it. Its always been like pushing a boulder uphill. Having Dennis Flint on the team has been a real help.

Among other things, the professional chef has been able to apply some uniquely useful training to the cause. Not only is he familiar with the requirements of preparing large amounts of food for several people (Spyro Grille, he noted, will produce as many as 50 servings of chicken souvlaki in a single day), but he is expert in combining ingredients in ways Blackley and Bohm would never have considered a particularly useful skill for a kitchen forever skirting the edge of ruin.

Well have maybe two dozen tomatoes left and nothing else, and no idea what to do with them, Blackley noted. And then here comes Dennis with a few pounds of rice from his restaurant, and some mint and onions, and the next thing you know were serving the most delicious stuffed tomatoes youve ever had.

And our clients are so grateful, she added. They might be less fortunate than some other people, but you can see in their eyes that if you serve them one more dish of tomato soup, theyre going to go nuts.

On January 8, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of Spyro Grilles grand opening, Dennis Flint and his Dishing Out Hope partners hosted a special luncheon for the soup kitchens patrons. Everyone who attended lunch at Dishing Out Hope on Saturday, January 7, was given a coupon to come to Spyro Grille at 11 a.m. on Sunday, January 8 when the soup kitchen was closed and enjoy a special Greek buffet prepared gratis by Dennis Flint and his staff.

It turned out to be a terrific party, the chef said. More than 200 people showed up, all ages, and they wound up eating pork cutlets and omelets and gyros and Greek salad. And the looks on their faces, especially the kids it was like a special holiday, just for them.

Coincidentally, January 9 marked Flints six-month anniversary preparing food at Dishing Out Hope and as busy as his Spyro Grille keeps him, he said he has no plans of stopping his charity cooking anytime soon.

As fulfilling as it is to finally own my own restaurant, nothing makes me prouder than working with Stacey and Louisa at Dishing Out Hope, Dennis Flint said. And as happy as I am that my restaurant is a success, I dont think I could have really enjoyed it knowing there were people in this community who were starving literally starving.

I have a great kitchen staff [at Spyro Grille], so if I come in an hour or two later a few days a week because Im helping [at Dishing Out Help], its not the end of the world, he added. The truth is, I just couldnt ignore this calling. My mother and Uncle Niko taught me better than that.

About Dennis Flint

Dennis Flint, 38, is a graduate of the Florida Culinary Institute and owner of the Spyro Grille, a Greek and Mediterranean restaurant in Tallahassee, Florida. A lifelong Floridian, he and his wife, Jennifer, reside in Tallahassee, where he is a volunteer at the Dishing Out Hope soup kitchen. Dennis Flint is an avid boater and deep-see fisherman.

Online Marketing Tips: Register for Free Social Media Webinar at

Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) January 08, 2012

Online marketing firm Ajax Union is hosting a free social media webinar for small business owners at 12 p.m. on Jan. 10, 2012. The social media webinar will be hosted by Sarah Mogin, the PR & Social Media manager of the SEO company, and registration is currently available online at

“Social media is an essential element in any national or local internet marketing campaign, as it allows businesses to reach out to consumers and peer institutions through direct networking, while also facilitating Search Engine Optimization. Our goal is to teach business owners how and why social media can work for them,” said Mogin, who helped to shape the business marketing company’s new AnewB Booster plans for daily social media activity.

The social media webinar will demonstrate the how activity on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and other prominent networks can help business owners promote themselves through online marketing. In addition to general tips, the webinar will provide compelling statistics and examples of how many small businesses are already using social media to their advantage. Mogin will focus both on the steps small business owners can take in-house and the potential benefits of hiring an internet marketing company to oversee more intensive social media campaigns.

Among other topics, the webinar will cover the merits of Facebook advertising, which allows for a higher level of targeting than many other ad models, including pay-per-click search engine marketing. When online marketing with Facebook ads, Mogin notes, advertisers can narrow down their audiences by precise demographics, including age, gender, and location, as well as specific interests.

“With Facebook, it’s easy to set up a business marketing campaign targeting clients’ competitors, or even non-competing Facebook pages that their target clientele are likely to follow. For example, women interested in a high-end Manhattan hair salon might also be fans of boutiques and restaurants in the same area,” Mogin said.

The social media webinar is part of Ajax Union’s recent series of seminars on the different types of online marketing. The internet marketing business has a Google AdWords webinar scheduled for Feb. 16, 2012 at 12 p.m. lead by David Gscheidle, a PPC specialist at Ajax Union.

“Different business marketing strategies work on different kinds of consumers. Some consumers are likely to click on search engine listings and paid advertisements, making them a great fit for search engine marketing. Other consumers may connect with a brand by ‘liking’ them on Facebook or signing up for their mailing lists, then making a purchase down the line. We’re helping businesses cover all the bases by learning how to promote themselves holistically,” said Tierney Oberhammer, Marketing Communication Specialist for Ajax Union.
