Keith Mann is definitely a person who recognizes professional talent. Keith’s company Dynamics Search Partners seeks out the best possible employees and executives for top companies in the New York area. Keith Mann is shifting his focus a bit, and he is looking for the most gifted graduating seniors in order to award a scholarship.

Uncommon Schools runs several charter schools in the Brooklyn area of New York. The goal of the scholarship, in addition to providing an opportunity to students, is to locate the business success stories of the future. A university degree is, of course, costly. The $5,000 scholarship removes some of those financial impediments and roadblocks.

The way to apply for the scholarship is free of complicated and unnecessary rules and requirements. Applicants are asked to write a 1,000 word essay on how a college degree will help them meet their business and career goals. The essays will be reviewed, and the top applicants from the various Uncommon Schools chapters end up being selected as winners.

Keith Mann has a tremendous amount of experience in the executive search industry. The new scholarship he is launching is a form of executive searching. The students who end up winning the scholarship award are ones with the greatest aptitude for success later in life. Hopefully, the inaugural year of the scholarship will be the first of many, many more to come.

Get A Healthy Mind With The Help Of Daniel Amen

Dr. Daniel Amen is a current best selling psychiatrist and author. He believes that holistic eating can benefit the overall health of the brain and body. His idea of using a nutrient rich diet as a way to try to alleviate the symptoms of ADD and depression is gaining national attention. If one is having problems with Weight Issues, Anxiety, ADHD, Depression, addictions or memory problems, then the Daniel Amen method of trying to alleviate these problems may help. Tens of thousands of patients have been helped by his methods.

Some doctors have stated that treating psychological disorders are really not much better than they were fifty years ago. A doctor named Doctor Thomas Insel, the director of the National Institute of Mental Health, has stated that unfortunately too few people are getting better or well by the current medications being prescribed. For twenty two years the Doctor Daniel Amen Clinics Method has been helping people get better.

The traditional way that people would go to get help from their psychiatrist isn’t working out that well, according to Dr. Amen. The patient will say something like I’m depressed to the doctor and the prescribing physician will simply give them some anti-depression pills. Attention Deficit Disorder is treated usually with some kind of stimulant medication. The diagnosis for these various disorders is to treat the immediate symptom at hand without considering any possible biological problems with the patient.

Psychiatrists are the only doctors that don’t look at the physical reasons why the body organ that they are studying doesn’t work right. Heart doctors look at the physical health of the heart to make a diagnosis. All other organ doctors do the same thing, but not psychiatrists. At the Amen Clinics, the doctors there believe that studying the brain itself is important. Some brains show signs of low activity or others may show a level of high activity. There may be a past brain injury of some sort that may be causing the patients symptoms of anxiety or depression or other disorder. Brain toxicity may be another cause of symptoms. All of these things need to be taken into consideration when coming to any conclusions regarding the state of the patients brain.

With a one size fits all approach, in some respects towards mental health in this country, it of great interest to know that doctors like Daniel Amen are trying to chart another course.

Layaway Angels Bring Holiday Cheer To People Around The Country

Layaway ‘angels’ are spreading cheer in different cities around the country. A customer at a Mechanicsburg, PA. Walmart paid $50,000.00 towards people’s layaway items. 100 accounts were covered by this generous act.

Two Walmarts, one located in Lake City, FL. and one in Chiefland, FL., also had anonymous, generous donations made to their layaway accounts. Chiefland’s Walmart’s layaway accounts were cleared completely by a $51,000.00 check and Lake City’s Walmart had 300 layaway accounts covered by a $59,000.00 check.

Employees are thoroughly enjoying making the calls to layaway customers stating that their accounts have been paid off. People are surprised and very happy, sometimes moved to tears, when they hear the good news.

Paying for layaway items seems to have caught on this year. Two separate Toys R Us stores received donations that paid off their layaway accounts last week. My friend Bernardo Chua showed me a segment on ABC’s Good Morning America called “Layaway Live” where Tim Tebow surprised people by paying off their layaway accounts.
