Insurance bring you and your loved ones piece of mind for the unknown. Literally anything can happen. Tornadoes, hurricanes, blizzards, earthquake, monsoons and many other natural disasters can ruin your possessions, your land and even take loved ones from you. You have to prepare for the worst at all times.
I’m not saying that your motto should be “prepare for the worst.” No one can live a full and meaningful life hiding under a rock while watching life pass you by. Everyone has the right to live life to the fullest potential.
I mean that everyone should be covered for those terrible and sporadic situations.
In this past two years there was an earthquake, a hurricane, Super storm Sandy and a blizzard on the East Coast. All of these phenomena’s are almost unnatural to the region and beyond belief to the residents of this area. Many people were uprooted from Super storm Sandy and had no electricity for weeks on end. People’s possessions were ruined and had a handful of clothing to their name. With out insurance these people could still be without a place to live and clothing to wear.
It is better to be prepared with insurance than to be caught off guard with it. When the worst happens you want to know there is something there to cushion your fall. Life, car, property and many other forms of insurance were created for such trying times.

Tag: How To
Email and email marketing are two of the newer tools of the business world that have become exceptionally important in the daily working of a company, office or personal communication with clients, partners and coworkers. Clear and straightforward communication is key to creating cohesive workflow and will keep your clients in the loop.
Many business people do not realize they are using these strategies incorrectly when using their emails. Here are some of the Do’s of emailing and email marketing.
The Do’s of Email Marketing
Use the Subject Line of an email as a title for the purpose of the email. If you are going to be discussing prices with a potential client a possible Subject line may read: ‘Rates and Fees for XYZ Company’s Services, or ‘ XYZ’s Fees and Pricing.’
Be short and sweet in your email copy. Don’t talk in circles; be clear and concise. Use the KIS method- Keep It Simple.
Reply in a timely manner. Yes work is busy, but responding to someone’s questions or concerns is very important for a good working relationship. Response time can impact the way you are perceived by clients. The quicker the better.
Use an email signature with the appropriate contact information. Items such as your company’s logo, your direct phone number, email and even social media handles are items that can be part of your email signature. If you create a template signature in your email, you can reuse it for all emails sent out to clients.
Reread your email before you send it. Make sure you find and replace all of your spelling and grammar mistakes.
Live and breath these email etiquette quips and your coworkers, client and boss will thank you in the long run.

Maybe you’re new to Twitter or maybe you’ve used Twitter pretty lightly and are trying to make it a more efficient tool for your own use. Whatever the circumstances, Twitter lists are a great way to categorize tweets by different subject or by different groups. Not only can you create your own personal lists, with the option of being public or private, but you can also subscribe to lists that were created by other people. These lists show you the timeline filled with only tweets from the people included on those lists.
Why would I want to subscribe to someone else’s list?
Subscribing to another’s already created list is great if you are looking for tweets related to your specific industry. Perhaps a large corporation that you follow has a list created of all other companies related to them. It’s a great way to get industry news quickly and easily, since most professional Twitter accounts are used for sharing industry news, tips, and how-to’s.
How do I create my own list?
Creating a list is very simple and can be done in no time at all. When you are logged into your account online, click on the ‘Me’ icon so you are viewing your profile. On the top left, you will see a link for ‘Lists’. While viewing this tab, you can view lists that you have created yourself, or lists that you have been added to by other people. On the right side of your profile, under the icon for direct mail, there is a button that says ‘Create List’, where you can give your list a name, description, and choose the option for Public or Private. When naming your list, keep in mind that list names cannot start with a number or be longer than 25 characters.
How do I Add/Remove people from my lists?
There are a couple ways to add or remove someone from a list. The most common way is to search for the user you want to add in the search bar and go to their Twitter profile. Click on the person drop down menu next to where it says ‘Following’. You will see an option that says ‘Add or remove from lists…’ and that is where you can choose the action you are looking to for. If you want to choose people to Add/Remove from a list that you are following, go to your ‘Following’ list and just click the same drop down menu, and going from there.
How do I share a list?
The quickest way to share a list, is to go to the page of list you are looking to share, copy the URL in the main address bar, and paste it into a tweet or direct message, depending on who you are looking to share it with.
How do I subscribe to someone else’s public list?
If you are looking to subscribe to a previously created list by another user, you need to be viewing their profile page in order to do so. Click on the ‘Lis ...

CAMDEN— At one time, Kaighn Avenue near Broadway was a place you could buy a watch in one store, an appliance in the next and a tuxedo in another.
Most of those businesses are now either dilapidated shells or vacant lots, but one longtime presence remains.
The Neighborhood Center, a church-affiliated outreach group that opened nearly a century ago, has launched an effort to revitalize empty spaces along the once-bustling street.
“One of the things that kept coming up in conversations with our current neighbors was frustration with the blight in some of the abandoned lots around here,” said Mike D’Italia, a community organizer with the center. “Lots that are overgrown tend to be dumping grounds, havens for salacious activity and can provide a screen for bad things to happen behind them.”
But the littered landscape is getting a makeover.
A group of 80 students from across the country spent the past two weeks cleaning vacant lots of trash, grass and weeds. Among the many discarded items, volunteers found part of a handgun and drug paraphernalia.
“All major debris was removed and now we’re presently in the process of engaging conversation with our neighbors to identify and then figure out how we can transform these lots into useful spaces,” said D’Italia, who helped organize the cleanup effort. So far, residents have suggested such uses as gardens and sitting areas.
Pat Keating, Camden’s public works director, noted a city program is meant to assist with the process.
“The whole point of Adopt-a-Lot is for someone to really help us and also help themselves by taking a lot to clean up and clear,” Keating said. “They can use it for sitting, but can’t put up permanent fixtures.”
Business ventures and religious services are prohibited, too, along with the planting of trees.
Keating said most of the lots near The Neighborhood Center are privately owned.
But that hasn’t stopped the nonprofit from asking owners to rehab their sites.
Only one or two have declined.
Currently, about 465 lots have been adopted across Camden.
“The nice ones are where there’s big gardens out on 29th and River Road (in Cramer Hill) or 4th and Beckett streets (in Lanning Square),” said Keating. “The other ones are successes because it keeps the grass cut and clean.”
That was the focus one day last week across from The Neighborhood Center in the 200 block of Kaighn Avenue. Camden residents John Nicolls, 20, and Leonard Bradley, 33, and Joe Cohen, 19, of Laurel Springs, were raking and weeding.
“I’m from Camden, so any chance I get to make it look better, I do,” said Nicolls, a part-time worker for The Neighborhood Center. “That’s the big thing — to make Camden better. That&rsq ...
