By Maddy VitaleYou might just walk by the new shop, Donna’s Nails & Spa at 1326 Asbury Ave., and think it looks charming. But if you stopped in, you would be welcomed by friendly people, where relaxation and a day of beauty await you.Maureen Holland, on vacation from Westfield, N.J., decided she needed a little pampering. She was on her yearly summer vacation in Ocean City, after all.“I’m getting a manicure and a pedicure,” Holland said as a nail technician applied cream to her legs, while her feet were soaking in water filled with minerals and vitamins. “I was walking around town and I saw the salon. It looked lovely, so I decided to stop and treat myself.”Maureen Holland, of Westfield, N.J., enjoys a spa treatment.Donna Nguyen, the owner of Donna’s Nails, opened the shop in June. But she is not new to owning a business. In 2016, she opened a salon by the same name in Brigantine that she noted is doing very well. Nguyen came to the United States from Vietnam 12 years ago. She moved to Ocean City seven years ago. She has five employees. Her brother, Denny Nguyen, and sister, Lisa Nguyen, also help out.   Nguyen is hoping to capitalize on her knowledge of the nail business. She offers customers a wide selection of services, competitive prices and an ideal location for tourists and residents.“I understand what people need and want,” Nguyen said with a wide smile. “People really want to come in to relax.”Donna’s Nails features spa treatments with oils and stones.Pedicures and manicures are the main offerings at the salon. Skilled, talented technicians work hard to please the customers, she said. The pedicure spa treatments include foot masks, scrubs, cleansers, and soaks. There is even a soak with hot stones. There are six spa chairs and five nail tables in the space that is ample to feel comfortable and pampered, not crowded.“People love the spa treatments. It is a treat, especially with the hot stones,” Nguyen said.Customers also have about 600 nail colors to choose from. There are also different types of nails, from gel, which are very popular, to newer offerings such as SNS, which adds a powder to a client’s nail to add length and strength. Donna’s Nails offers 600 nail colors to choose from.Marja Lindstrom, of London, brought her daughter, Noemie Lindstrom, 11, for mother- daughter manicures on their yearly summer vacation to Ocean City.Nguyen took care of Marja Lindstrom’s manicure, while Noemie sat at another table with her hands under a heat lamp.Noemie opted for a color she saw on Instagram. Her nails were painted in a lavender color and one of the nails had glitter on it.She proudly flashed her newly beautified nails and smiled.“She is the one who really wanted to come in,” Marja Lindstrom said with a laugh. “She loves having her nails done.” Noemie Lindstrom, 11, of London, on vacation in Ocean City, proudly displays her newly painted nails.Nguyen said in just a few months, her Ocean City salon has really started to build up a clientele. She hopes, as more people learn about Donna’s Nails and all that it has to offer, the business will continue to grow. She said her team of technicians would love to book large groups for weddings and other special occasions for the services offered at the salon.She emphasized that the salon uses an excellent exhaust system to push out the odors of the chemicals used during nail services.Everything done at Donna’s Nails is up to code requirements to offer customers the safest environment for their nail treatments, she said.“We have to have this air system. It is required in Ocean City, and it is healthy for everybody,” she noted. “Our salon does not smell like chemicals. Some do.”In just a few months, Donna’s Nails already has regular customers.“They come in every two to three weeks,” Nguyen said. “They are just happy to be here.”For more information or to make an appointment, call Donna’s Nails & Spa at (609) 938-2008.Donna’s Nails is located at 1326 Asbury Ave. in Ocean City.

Connective Behaviors that Spur Innovation

first_imgLeaders aspire to build ever more nimble and responsive businesses while seeking a competitive advantage in a global economy. Today’s successful leaders must not only be strategic thinkers, but innovators as well. And the successful leaders of tomorrow must be able to drive organizational innovation by tapping into the knowledge and creativity of their teams. Innovation is often the key driver of an organization’s growth and performance. It can be the single best way for a company to differentiate itself from competitors. How can we help foster a culture of collaboration and creativity to help drive growth and success? Fostering connectivity, first and foremost amongst other things, promotes creativity and spurs innovation.More than ever before, we have the ability to share our ideas and encourage a discussion around them, unconstrained by time, physical borders or distance. We live in a connected world. Connectivity is about having the practical means to connect with others; but it is also about having the connections we need to enable and encourage innovation. Connectivity increases exposure to new opportunities, new ideas, and to feedback. Communities of corporate innovation are connected to every facet of business from product development, customer engagement, marketing programs, to employee development. Empowered workers care more about developing high-performing cultures that drive customer value over time.As the founder of EMC’s West Coast Women’s Leadership Forum (WCWLF), my vision was to make EMC the center of Leadership and Innovation through the eyes of women. Our programs follow this theme and are delivered to internal and external audiences of men and women often in partnership with nonprofits, universities and other corporations. In 2012, we delivered more than 50 programs, making EMC’s WCWLF one of the most diverse and interesting venues with a rich community of attendees. Looking to further our influence and reach, we developed a new Leadership and Innovation in the Executive Suite speaker series. The program brings leaders and innovators with different points of view to EMC and creates a community to inspire leadership through the voice of innovators, showcase thought leadership, and establish new partnerships while building connective behaviors that spur innovation. To increase our impact, we partnered with digital book publisher Vook to create an eBook, commemorating the program while expanding our reach. “Connective Behaviors That Spur Innovation” was released in March and has since inspired a global community of thought leaders to share their perspectives. Jeremy Burton, Executive Vice President, Product Operations and Marketing was the program’s host and keynote speaker.At EMC World I will once again be working with Vook to commemorate EMC Women in Technology through the Women of the World program called “Boost Your Credibility – Hidden Behavioral Cues,” scheduled for May 8th, 2013. More than 50 largely hidden behavioral and contextual cues have been discovered that deeply affect how others respond to you. Cues cover situations as diverse as setting, female/male differences, sounds, and the sequence of “scenes” we experience. Keynote speaker Kare Anderson, a Forbes Columnist and expert on quoteability and connective behaviors will be joined by Helene Barnekow, EMC Senior Vice President, Worldwide Field & Channel Marketing and Bill Teuber, EMC Vice Chairman. The eBook planned release date is scheduled for July 2013.last_img read more

Native plants

first_imgBy Matthew ChappellUniversity of GeorgiaHave you ever driven along a Georgia country road or visited a state park and a beautiful blooming shrub or tree caught your eye? Chances are you were looking at one of the thousands of plants native to Georgia.As a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension horticulturist, I am constantly amazed by the low number of native plants available for sale. Have no fear though, if you know where to look you can find some amazing native species for your landscape. Native plants often get a bad reputation for one reason: gardeners assume they can be planted anywhere because they are native. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Just like other plants, native plants have specific light and water requirements. They are no different than non-native species sold at retail garden centers. Before planting any plant, remember this golden rule: right plant in the right place.For example, if you plant the non-native lace cap hydrangea (Hydrangea macrophylla) in a dry and sunny location, you are not going to be impressed with its performance. Likewise, if you plant a native oak leaf hydrangea (Hydrangea quercifolia) in a dry and sunny location, you will not be impressed with its performance either. The native can, however, withstand drier soils than its non-native cousin.Here are a few native suggestions for shady sites that don’t get too dry: native azaleas (there are hundreds of cultivars), Virginia sweetspire (Itea virginica), serviceberry (Amelanchier arborea), redbud (Cercis canadensis) and anise (Illicium floridatum). Here are a few suggestions for those sunny, dry locations: wax myrtle (Morella cerifera), trumpet vine (Campsis radicans), Carolina jessamine (Gelsemium sempervirens), fringe tree (Chiocanthus virginicus) and beautyberry (Callicarpa americana). Did you know that our state flower, the Cherokee Rose, is not a Georgia native? It was named the state flower in 1916. This just points to a century-old trend of using non-natives in our landscape. While there is nothing wrong with using non-natives, you may want to step back in time to the pre-antebellum days when landscapes were predominantly filled with native plants. There are native species that will fit any growing environment. If you’ve never planted a native plant, you may want to start with the Christmas fern (Polystichum acrostichoides). It was named plant of the year by the Georgia Native Plant Society. To learn more about it and other native plants, go to the Web site www.gnps.org. For those of you who love the outdoors and love to get your hands dirty, GNPS hosts plant rescues on development sites across Georgia. I can’t think of a better way to get to know natives and meet fellow gardeners.For more help on native plants, contact your local UGA Extension office at 1-800-ASK-UGA1.last_img read more

first_img[divider]more from Blueridgeoutdoors.com[/divider] Within a day’s drive of 2/3 of the U.S. population lies 520,000 acres of some of the oldest mountains in the world. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park (GSMNP), the largest national park east of the Rocky Mountains, hosts 9-10 million visitors annually, making it the most visited park in the nation. This iconic park was founded in 1934, and is one of the few national parks to offer free admission year round.Every year people flock to the GSMNP to camp, hike, ride horses, fly fish, gaze at waterfalls and wildflowers, search for wildlife, and enjoy other outdoor activities. In the spring, synchronized fireflies draw crowds, and in the fall countless visitors enjoy an annual explosion of fall leaf colors.Planning a trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park?

Drive 3.8 miles from Sugarland Visitors Center to the top of Fighting Creek Gap where the parking lot for Laurel Falls Trail will be on your right.If you decide to check out the Great Smoky Mountains National Park this year, be advised that dogs are only allowed to travel through the park on roads.

UK launches massive bond sales to fund COVID-19 spending surge

first_img“This higher volume of issuance is not expected to be required across the remainder of the financial year,” Britain’s finance ministry said.British government bond yields rose slightly in early trade on Thursday.A Reuters survey of 11 primary dealers had predicted the DMO would announce gilt issuance of around 300 billion pounds for the 2020/21 financial year as a whole.So far, investors have shown little sign of balking at the jump in public borrowing although the Bank of England has agreed to expand the government’s overdraft facility at the central bank, in case it struggles to raise cash in the debt market.The finance ministry said a further update to the DMO’s debt sales plan would be announced on June 29. Britain’s government plans to sell more bonds over the next three months than it had previously planned for the entire financial year to fund a surge in public spending in the face of the coronavirus crisis.The UK Debt Management Office said on Thursday it planned to issue 180 billion pounds ($222.43 billion) of government debt between May and July to finance the unprecedented measures announced last month to avert the collapse of Britain’s economy.Previously, the DMO had been planning to sell 156.1 billion pounds of bonds between April 2020 and March 2021.
