    Dealing with Collection Agencies and Debt Collections | Houston Video Interview

    in Real Estate

    Collections. This is a big topic for a lot of people. Do you pay collections? What do you do with collection phone calls? How long do collections sit on your credit report? There are lots of myths and not a lot of valid information on the internet. Watch below to find out what you need to know about dealing with  collection agencies and debt collections. 


    Dealing With Collection Agencies – Are They Really Your Collections?


    Mike:          Collections. Let’s say that you just got turned down for that home loan and you say, they say, well, you’ve got five collections. They’re four years old.


    First of all, are those really your collections, Brian? We don’t know that. You don’t know that. You might not even know that yourself. I never lived in this apartment complex and they’re (unclear) on the line.


    So what we’re going to make them do is we’re going to make them prove that’s your debt. And by Federal Trade Commission guidelines, they have to give you a copy of the original note you signed, plus a complete billing history, to prove that’s the exact amount, the exact date, that’s your collection. If not, we’re going to remove it.

    Putting love on your skin - Sally B's Skin Yummies

    in Women

    With passion and unwavering ambition, Sally Larsen finds the perfect balance of health and beauty with Sally B’s Skin Yummies, her handmade line of natural and organic skincare products and makeup.  A firm believer that health and beauty are dependent upon one another, the self-confessed “product girl” began making her own good-for-your products in 2003 when she noticed a void in the organic skincare market.  What began as a personal journey to replace her chemical-rich beauty products quickly turned into an in-demand hobby among her friends, motivating Sally to found Sally B’s Skin Yummies in 2005.


    Launching Sally B’s Skin Yummies with just two products, her now famous Shea Butter Bar and Healing Hand Butter, Sally established Skin Yummies to share the positive benefits of a healthy beauty regime with the world and also stake her own personal claim in the organics industry, the “unofficial Larsen family business.” While she wasn’t exactly raising bees and harvesting her own honey like her father, she spent countless hours researching and testing organic and natural ingredients as alternatives to preservatives, chemical additives and harsh irritants often found in beauty products.  As she learned, created and experimented, her initial small offering grew into a product line of over 30 must-have lotions, potions and other good-for-you creams.

    Metalsmith Benchtalk with Mixed Media Artists Kranitsky and Overstreet

    in Art

    Our guests on Metalsmith Benchtalk on Thursday May 21st, 2015 at 3:00 pm PST are ceramic and metal artists Kranitsky and Overstreet. 


    We invite you to listen and participate in this live interview by logging onto the chatroom on Blogtalkradio.com or by sending a message to Whaley Studios via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  


    About:


    The creative collaboration between Kranitzky and Overstreet began in 1985 when a mutual interest in ceramics prompted them to create mixed-media jewelry to raise funds for a kiln. The serendipitous flourishing of this project launched their collaborative venture known then as Lost & Found. Over the years their jewelry has evolved into intricate, narrative brooches which are now in permanent museum collections including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Smithsonian Collection: National Museum of Contemporary American Craft and the Design Museum Helsinki, Finland. Robin and Kim have participated in many exhibitions over the years and their work is featured in numerous publications. The Kranitzky & Overstreet studio is located in Richmond, Virginia, USA.

    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources

    in Education

    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources.


    We've all experienced the museum as a place to go as a member of an elementary class or on a stormy weekend day. In the internet age, museums have an audience far beyond those who walk through the doors. Museums have a long history of creating resources to help teachers plan a class visit and materials for students that extend their visit into the classroom and home.


    In this show, we will explore a new generation of museums that provide rich experiences for learners that leverage the museums expertise and collections to extend their reach and impact on learners. We will hear how they plan and create those assets and discuss how they have or would like to work with publishers to increase the the reach and integration of their offerings into school practices. 


    Guests at the table:


    1. Kris Wetterlund, Director of Education and Interpretation at Corning Museum of Glass


    2. Dr. Marjee Chmiel, Associate Director of Curriculum and Communications at Smithsonian Science Education Center 


    3. Melissa Wadman, Manager of Program Evaluation at the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access
