    Music is all in the email you send or is it really included at all.

    in Entertainment

    Pitches from brand new bands and artists not tied to a public relations company are unarguably the ones that catch the most skepticism from journalists. Sometimes it only takes an unfamiliar name amid an avalanche of emails from recognizable PR reps for a writer to pass you over. If they’ve actually opened your message, then any sort of blunder could easily cost you.


    Does that sound harsh? It’s not, really. I can’t speak for everyone, but generally, journalists aren’t unnecessarily mean; it’s just that there is more music than there are writers. There are expectations about the quality of music, of course, but also the presentation of your inquiry. Outlined here are five general types of pitches to avoid, and the mistakes commonly found within them. Keep them in mind when getting your pitch together, and you’ll better the likelihood of receiving a response.

    Health Insurance Countdown - Get Yours Now!

    in Health

    Join Partners in Health and Biz talk show host Gail Dixon this Saturday, January 31, 2015 and learn what you can do now to get affordable health coverage before the February 15, 2015 deadline and avoid a tax penalty this April. Call into the studio with your questions and/or comments: 347-945-7433.


    If figuring out your 2015 health insurance is still on your "To Do" list, here are the three things you need to know:



    It's not too late! Open Enrollment is...well, open! If you haven't applied for coverage, you still have time.
     
    Have coverage from last year? Check to see if your current plan is still the best one for you. Many carriers have changed their pricing and you may want to choose a different plan.
     
    Worried that health insurance is too expensive? Many people qualify for a tax credit subsidy that lowers the premium they pay each month. Example: subsidies are available for individuals with income between $11,670 and $46,680, or a family of four with income between $23,850 and $95,400.



    Open Enrollment for 2015 coverage runs through February 15, 2015. During this time you can sign up for new coverage, change plans, or find out if you can get help paying for your coverage.

    Ep. 5: Catching Up with Susan Smiley

    in Family

    Ten years ago we were introduced to Susan Smiley, her mother Millie and her sister Tina. Out of the Shadow was produced and directed by Susan. Premiering in 2005, it provided an unprecedented insight into her mother's serious mental illness, her own journey and how she and her sister have coped. The response to the film was enormous, receiving wide-spread press coverage. It continues to be required viewing in many university courses and graduate schools of public health, psychiatry, social work and nursing. It has received many awards, been translated into 12 languages and has been viewed countless times on PBS stations across the country. Tonight, we speak with Susan. She'll reflect on how the film impacted her life since she went public with her very personal and painful story. We will also discuss her current activities and interests.
