Bacall Conniff and Associates Review - Simplicity Applied in Sophisticated Accounting Services

One should achieve ease of movement and simplicity of technique to master an approach (e.g. accounting). However, all great achievements take time and it often needs years of practice to reach great levels of expertise and proficiency. This applies to almost all things in life because one doesn't need to rush things that need time to grow.


Bacall Conniff and Associates is using three basic principles in providing trustworthy accounting and financial services to their clients. Those principles include simplified accounting, increased controls, and zero-tolerance to redundancy. The firm makes sure to establish the right simplified accounting from the very beginning and doesn't forget to maintain simplicity throughout the entire process. The staff also gives great importance to small details and sees each of their tasks crucial for their business - from the daily tasks to the weekly and monthly financial statements and corporate year-end work.


Clients can identify possible risks and opportunities during the process and then perform necessary adjustments. This is because Bacall Conniff and Associates maintains awareness of the projected targets and recognize where they are at the present based on the plan.


The firm always does regular inventories, obtains prompt financial statements, and goes to the process of comparing actual figures with the budget. It would be better to hire dependable experts who have experience in the industry and have the necessary knowledge to see the bigger picture without losing sight of the important minor details.


In order to avoid redundancy on their work, the members of Bacall Conniff handle paperwork only once because real work is usually forgotten due to a lot of paperwork. It would also be nice to provide incentive schemes and to expect responsibility both to duty and performance from workers. The staff would want to be engaged in its success as long as something is simple.


Bacall Conniff and Associates strongly believes that their simple approach in doing their job is what made them a renowned company today. For them, simplicity is the foundation of their known efficiency and success.

Sally Caverly – the Heart of Hawkfield Gallery by Hawkfield Gallery Review

Sally Caverly is the heart, soul and spirit of the Hawkfield Gallery, to put it simply or matter-off-factly. The gallery would not have existed without Sally Caverly, owner and curator of the gallery.  As an art lover brought up by parents who were artists themselves, Sally had grown to appreciate the value of preserving and enhancing valuable products of inspired human imagination.  As a growing kid, she learned to appreciate the beauty of nature, of wildlife and of the breathtaking landscapes of New Hampshire's Lakes Region, thus, developing her keen taste for and understanding of human art as well. Art collecting and her great interest in research came about as natural products of interacting with family members, from her formal education and from her versatile work involvement.


Sally obtained a degree in Marketing from Simmons College as well as another diploma from Phillips Academy in Andover.  She also has a Master’s Degree in Education. She worked as Market Research Department Head at Houghton Mifflin Company and ran online retail store. She now serves as a Director at the North and South Rivers Watershed Association, aside from pursuing her passion for art through managing Hawkfield Gallery and mentoring children with special needs.


Sally started quite early in the art gallery business during her teens when she was tasked at times to serve as auctioneer for her parents’ collection of American impressionist paintings and sculptures. We can say that she was not only literally born into the art scene but trained so early on to take up the joys and challenges of running a gallery. Later on in her twenties, she bought a pastel drawing of wild ducks William Henry Chandler, her first in a growing collection that has led to what she now has. It seems she has not lost that first love, as many of the paintings and sculptures in her present collection include ducks, geese and other wild birds and animals.


The attachment to her home environment in the East Coast, in general, is quite apparent in Sally Caverly’s art collection. Her experiences and her insights into the life and sensibilities of the people she grew up with and with those she continues to interact with has helped Hawkfield Gallery maintain its charming, rustic quality which attracts many customers who wish to experience the American life even if it is only through art works.  


Hawkfield Gallery’s fine arts consultants have helped Sally Caverly maintain quality service and assistance to many satisfied art buyers and collectors. Sally believes in leading others “by experience”; and by her own vast experience, she has proven that it works all the time.

Haws Corporation Tempered Water Nevada USA, Singapore: Trends in Emergency Eyewashes/Showers

Repost from Safety & Health article by Tracy Haas


Equipment reliability is imperative


Unlike personal protective equipment such as hard hats and steel-toe boots, emergency eyewashes and showers are not meant to be used every day. Ideally, a worker will never need one. But should an incident such as a chemical splash occur, it’s vital that emergency eyewashes and showers be ready for use.




Because emergency eyewashes and showers are not frequently used, their maintenance may not always be top of mind. “The two most common emergency shower misuses are not providing ANSI-required tepid water and failing to conduct weekly test activations to ensure the units are working,” said Ryan Pfund, senior product manager, emergency fixtures, for Menomonee Falls, WI-based Bradley Corp. Pfund recommends establishing a weekly inspection program to test your company’s eyewash and shower equipment to ensure it is working properly and providing tepid water instantaneously. “Manufacturers provide specially designed devices and materials to assist in testing,” he added.


Nuray Ebel, product manager at Sparks, NV-based Haws, echoed Pfund’s comment that ANSI Z358.1-required weekly testing – although crucial – is often neglected: “The most significant part of the weekly test is the validation that the equipment provides proper first aid to users – not just ensuring water is present.”


Keith Flamich, marketing manager for Chicago-based Guardian Equipment, notes that equipment reliability is imperative. “During incidents where emergency eyewash and shower units are activated, far too much is at stake to depend on equipment that is not properly tested and not third-party certified,” Flamich said.


What’s new


Emergency eyewashes and showers now have improved flow control and coverage, according to Pfund. “The newest models apply fluid dynamics technology that works with a pressure-regulated flow control to provide an integral and uniform flow of water directed at the affected area,” he said.


Flamich pointed to the increasing popularity of heat-traced freeze-resistant stations in cold-weather environments. “These units are manufactured with a heat-tracing cable wrapped around internal piping to prevent the freezing of standing water within the unit,” he said. “Once activated, a safety station first delivers the standing water before drawing from a tepid water supply.” However, he cautioned that these stations are commonly misunderstood, and people often believe the units are capable of heating a full 15-minute supply of water per the ANSI Z358.1 tepid water requirement. “The reality is that these units heat only the standing water contained within its internal piping prior to unit activation,” Flamich explained. “As such, there must be continuous source of tepid water supplying the heat-traced safety station (i.e., thermostatic mixing valve, tepid water loop, or instantaneous water heater) to meet the ANSI-required 15-minute tepid water flush.”


On a separate note, Ebel spoke of the benefits of using wireless alarm technology for emergency eyewashes and showers. “Wireless transmitters enable control and/or notification from remote areas where wiring or wire maintenance is not physically possible or economically feasible.”

Things to do in Dorset by Group Holiday in Southbourne Dorset

Dorset is situated on the south coast of England, between Devon in the west and Hampshire in the east - much of the County is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Few major roads run through the county, allowing Dorset to retain much of its rural character and charm.

Dorset is a delightful county, with a variety of contrasting landscapes, consisting of coastline with high cliffs, inland there are wooded hills and fertile valleys, rolling chalk hills and wild heath-land.

There are several interesting towns along the coast, starting in the east at Christchurch, a Saxon town on the estuaries of the Rivers Avon and Stour, with a picturesque harbour and magnificent 11th century Priory Church.

Bournemouth is a vibrant city, with beautiful sandy beaches, gardens, shopping, night life and entertainment for holiday makers. Poole has the second largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney - you can explore the old quarter by the quayside, with many historic buildings.

'The Isle of Purbeck' is a coastal peninsula below Pool harbour. The towns of Wareham, encircled by its original Saxon walls and home of the oldest church in Dorset, and Swanage, a seaside resort and home to the famous local Purbeck stone often referred to as 'marble', are worth visiting. Nearby, the historic village of Corfe Castle is a beauty spot not to miss.

Weymouth is a popular seaside town with many interesting family attractions. Bridport also has a Dorset Tourist Information centre - the town is known for rope and net making and still makes tennis nets for Wimbledon, the All England Tennis Club.

Portland is connected to the mainland by a causeway at the eastern end of Chesil Beach, a barren pebbled beach, stretching from Weymouth to Bridport. In the hills behind the Chesil Bank, the old village of Abbotsbury is famous for the 600 year old bird sanctuary, Abbotsbury Swannery. Portland is the origin of the stone used by Sir Christopher Wren for St. Paul's Cathedral and for the UN headquarters in New York.
