I found my Dream Job!!!

July 25

Hi, my name is Carla D.

As a young adult, I had a lot of fantasies about what would be the perfect start in my life as a“professional”. But, unfortunately, life turned me around and threw surprises, I could not control After two college degrees, a professional teaching certificate and various types of training, I did not feel professionally fulfilled! I left my profession in education, went on various interviews, searched the job boards, took free training seminars and, once again, found myself, discouraged. I wanted a fast pace, excitement and to participate in helping people, all in one pursuit. I relocated to world-famous hustle and bustle New York City three years ago and though I feel comfortable in the midst of it, I still had been having a very difficult time finding a job that would support me both financially and fulfill me
intellectually.

Finally, I did discover a truly exciting, lucrative and portable profession – Central Sterile Processing Technician. I could not wait to learn what this career was all about!
I discovered this profession in an advertisement in a Craigslist Post for the school, Multyprep, Inc. and its Sterile Processing Certification Exam Program in Brooklyn. I was instantly relieved to find out that it would NOT require long-term commitments and big tuition bills. Instead, it offered a brand-new state-of-the-art, lucrative medical career after only 9 weeks of classroom instruction and with an
affordable plan. So, I quickly began to explore Multyprep’s Certification Training Course and the possibility of a new career as a Certified Sterile Processing Technician.

After, some research on the Web and a brief meeting with Gelya Kotlyar, the Executive Director at Multyprep, I am proud to announce that I am a now a Certified Central Sterile Technician and a professional member of the Healthcare Field. I became a member of the International Association of Healthcare Central Service Materiel Management (IAHCSMM) in June 2018 and now involved in a profession that offers me boundless opportunity, in one of the fastest growing and prosperous professions in the US
Job Market today.

It took only two months for me to accomplish my goal!
I found my Dream Job!!!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE HISTORY OF TEQUILA

July 23

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE HISTORY OF TEQUILA

Few spirits are as shrouded in myth and mystery as tequila—and for good reason. This spicy and instantly recognizable Mexican spirit has been around for centuries, which is plenty of time for a few good tall tales to surface.

Despite its common association with rabble-rousers like salt and lime or in ’70s one-hit wonders like the Tequila Sunrise, this agave spirit has stood the test of (lots of) time and is as respected among top bartenders as bourbon and Scotch. Even George Clooney put his hard-earned money toward starting a brand of the stuff.

And like bourbon, more officially known as America’s Native Spirit, tequila distillers have a stringent set of rules they must abide by. Those include ensuring that each bottle is made in the proper location—from the correct ingredients—and that reposado and añejo versions are aged for just the right amount of time. But, as they say, Rome (or in this case Tequila, Jalisco) wasn’t built in a day—or even a millennium.

1000 B.C. TO 200 A.D.: THE AZTECS FERMENT AGAVE

While it’s possible—probable, even—that the Aztecs knew how to throw a real rager, tequila didn’t start out as the partier’s shot of choice. It didn’t even start out as the tequila we know today. The Aztecs prized a fermented drink known as pulque, which used the sap of the agave plant (this technique was also likely used by the Olmecs, an even older civilization dating back to 1000 B.C. that was based in the lowlands of Mexico). The milky liquid was so important to Aztec culture that they worshipped two gods known for their relationship to booze. The first was Mayahuel, the goddess of the maguey, and the second was her husband Patecatl, the god of pulque. Though the first documentation of pulque—on stone walls, of course—appeared around 200 A.D., the drink really caught on centuries later when the Aztecs received a surprise visit from the Spanish.

1400S & 1500S: THE SPANISH DISTILL AGAVE

While there are multiple theories on the beginning of agave distillation, a common telling involves the Spanish invasion and primitive mud stills. The parched Spaniards couldn’t be without their brandy for too long, so when supplies began to run low, they improvised with mud and agave, essentially creating what we know today as mezcal. (Remember: All tequilas are technically mezcals, but not all mezcals are tequilas.) In the mid-1500s, the Spanish government opened a trade route between Manila and Mexico, and in the early 1600s, the Marquis of Altamira built the first large-scale distillery in what is now Tequila, Jalisco.

1700S TO 1800S: MODERN TEQUILA IS BORN

The Cuervo family, who everyone now knows and loves, began commercially distilling tequila in 1758, followed later by the Sauza family in 1873 (and, we’re sure, a few other small producers in between). According to Slate, Don Cenobio Sauza was responsible for identifying blue agave as the best for producing tequila—and by this point what we now know as tequila was likely being produced at these distilleries.

1936: THE MARGARITA IS INVENTED

As was the case with rye whiskey from Canada during Prohibition, tequila also found a home among American scofflaws. Unable to get their hands on much beyond second-rate whiskey and bathtub gin, drinkers in the U.S. began taking advantage of Mexico’s sweet agave nectar—not to mention the more than one hundred bars in Tijuana that were plentiful with drink and easy to access.

By the time 1936 rolled around, it was once again legal to drink in the States and going to Mexico for a good time was no longer requisite. But a newspaperman named James Graham and his wife took a trip to Tijuana, where they wound up in one of the surviving bars run by an Irishman called Madden, who was known around the area for his Tequila Daisy. Though Madden admitted that the creation of the drink was a lucky mistake, it’s become one of the most celebrated in the U.S. (margarita in Spanish means daisy). When was the last time you celebrated Cinco de Mayo without one? (Assuming you celebrate that strangely American of Mexican holidays.)

1974: “TEQUILA” BECOMES THE INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OF MEXICO

In a move to take ownership of the term “tequila,” the Mexican government declared the term as its intellectual property in 1974. This made it necessary for tequila to be made and aged in certain areas of Mexico, and it also made it illegal for other countries to produce or sell their own “tequila.” The Tequila Regulatory Council was additionally created to ensure quality and promote the culture surrounding the spirit.

2015: BARTENDING’S LOVE AFFAIR WITH AGAVE

From the humble pulque to today’s craft tequilas, bartenders around the world are taming the humble agave nectar into more than simple Margaritas and Tequila Sunrises. In 2009, Phil Ward opened Mayahuel, celebrating the current state of fantastic tequila and mezcal available in the U.S. (the name was inspired by the Aztec god, who birthed 400 drunken rabbit babies). The bar helped popularize tequila-flying classic cocktails like the Oaxaca Old Fashioned. Since then, multiple noteworthy bars across the country have arrived, including Masa Azul in Chicago and 400 Rabbits in Austin, Texas. Most recently, Ivy Mix, who was named the Best American Bartender at this year’s Tales of the Cocktail, opened Leyenda, a Mexican-inspired watering hole serving tequila cocktails that would make the Olmecs raise a glass in wonderment.

20th July, 2018 will be… Lollipop Day

20th July, 2018 Lollipop Day

Where did Lollipops originate!
Today, lollipops are one the most diverse and best-selling types of candy out there. But where did this sweet treat on a stick first come from?

History of the Lollipop

The oldest precursor to today’s lollipops comes from ancient Africa and Asia. Archaeologists believe that ancient Chinese, Arabs, and Egyptians all produced fruit and nut confections that they “candied” in honey, which serves as a preservative, and inserted sticks into to make easier to eat. During the Middle Ages, the nobility would often eat boiled sugar with the aid of sticks or handles. In the 17th Century, as sugar became more available in Europe, the English enjoyed boiled sugar candy treats and inserted sticks into them to make them easier to eat, too.
 
In America, the history of the first lollipops has been distorted over time. There is some speculation that lollipops were invented during the American Civil War. Others believe some version of the lollipop has been around in America since the early 1800s. George Smith of New Haven, Connecticut claimed to be the first to invent the modern style lollipop in 1908. He used the idea of putting candy on a stick to make it easier to eat, and initially lollipops were a soft, rather than hard, candy.
 
With the birth of automation in the early 20th Century, we first begin to see the emergence of the lollipop as we know it today. In 1908, in Racine, Wisconsin, the Racine Confectionery Machine Company introduced the first automated lollipop production with a machine that put hard candy on the end of a stick at the rate of 2,400 sticks per hour. Around 1912, Russian immigrant Samuel Born invented a machine that inserted sticks into candy, called the Born Sucker Machine. The City of San Francisco considered it so innovative that they awarded him the keys to the city in 1916.
 
Linguists say the term “lolly pop” literally means “tongue slap,” and it’s believed that London street vendors may have coined this term as they peddled the treat. Some also suggest that “lollipop” may be a word of Romany origin related to the Roma tradition of selling toffee apples on a stick. “Red apple” in the Romany language is loli phaba. However, in America, George Smith trademarked the name in 1931 and he reportedly named the treats after a popular racing horse, Lolly Pop. The name “lollipop” is now in the public domain.
 
 

Lollipop Fun Facts

Dum Dum Suckers were given their name because it was believed to be a name that any kid could easily pronounce.
The Dum Dum Mystery Flavor pop is a mixture of two flavors that come together when the end of one batch of candy meets the beginning of the next batch.
The world’s largest lollipop maker, Tootsie Roll, turns out 16 million lollipops per day.
Lollipops can be used to carry medicines. Flavored lollipops containing medicine are marketed for children, and are also used in the military due to the fast-acting ingredients.
In 1958, the song “Lollipop” by female vocal quartet The Chordettes reached #2 and #3 on the Billboard pop and R&B charts, respectively.
Lollipops are also featured in songs like “The Lollipop Guild” from The Wizard of Oz, and “The Good Ship Lollipop” from the 1934 Shirley Temple movie Bright Eyes.
The world’s largest lollipop was made by See’s Candies in 2012. It was 7003 pounds, over 4 feet in length and 5 feet in height, and had a 12 foot stick.
Chupa Chups are the most popular lollipops in the world. The Chupa Chups logo was designed by famous artist Salvadore Dali.
The title character of the popular 1970s TV show Kojak was often shown sucking on his trademark lollipop. The lollipop made its debut in the Season 1 episode “Dark Sunday,” broadcast on December 12, 1973. Kojak lights a cigarette as he begins questioning a witness, but thinks better of it and sticks a lollipop (specifically, a Tootsie Pop) in his mouth instead.
National Lollipop Day is July 20.

Did you know? July, 2018 is… Cell Phone Courtesy Month

Cool Cell Phone Features Few Know About

The cell phone has to be one of the most important inventions of modern times. You can contact someone living in the opposite part of the world, write messages that are received instantly, and find all kinds of wonderful news and entertainment online. But, phones do so much more than perform these basic functions. Here are special tricks your cell phone can do. These are amazing!

1. Make Your Phone into a Listening Device

If you want to turn your phone into a spying device or a baby monitor, then you’re in luck. After enabling the Auto-Answer function, muting the microphone, speaker, ringtone, and vibration, simply put your cell phone in your chosen location, then remove yourself to another place and call the handset (using another device or phone). It will answer automatically without making any sound! And you’ll be able to hear everything. Pretty cool, huh?

2. Make Sure No One Can Use Your Stolen Phone

Every phone in the world has its own 15 digit IMEI number, which you can find by opening your dialer and typing *#06# with the keypad. It’s also visible in Settings > About > Device > Status. If you’ve irretrievably lost or had your phone stolen, you can contact your phone company to block your device, simply by quoting your unique number. If everyone did this, phone theft would have virtually no purpose.

3. Turn Your Phone into a Microscope

Using a lens that you can find on a normal laser pointer you can manipulate your phone to magnify up to one hundred times the normal size. This will be great for showing kids cell nuclei, for instance. What’s more, the images you record will be digital, which could never be said of the microscopes we grew up with!

 Make Your Phone Last Years Longer

The power jack at the foot of your phone collects all kinds of dust and dirt through its life, and this is one of the main causes of the device dying. Most of us think nothing of this, but if you actually clean it occasionally you’ll be able to substantially extend the phone’s lifespan, and get more value for money. Simply insert a syringe full of air into the power jack and inject the air. This will help you clear away the dust.

Thank you so much! I found the job of my dream!

I would like to thank MultyPrep, INC for their excellent program in Central Service. Even though I currently hold a Bachelor’s degree, this course has benefited me more than 4 yours of extensive studies in a university.

Although the course was only 8 weeks long I learned so much, and will remember my short time studying in this program for the rest of my life. The skills I have learned in this program I will carry on with me my throughout my entire career.

From introduction to the subject, to hands on training, all the way through to interview preparation, this course delivered it all, as promised. Although, I was skeptical about the course always thinking it cannot be this simple to achieve a great career in such a short amount of time, MultyPrep Inc proved to be a magnificent learning center and helped me achieve all of my goals in such a short amount of time.

By halfway throughout the course, I felt more than ready for the exam and they always went above and beyond to make sure everything was clear to me and answered any and all questions I may have had. The exam was not easy, but thanks to MultyPrep Inc I was very prepared and passed on my first try. Even more than that, using the skills I learned in class, I came to my job the first day very prepared and demonstrated my knowledge and expertise in this field right away. I highly recommend this school to everyone and anyone interested to joining the great field of Central Service technicians.

NATIONAL ALCOHOL SCREENING DAY! 9 WEIRDEST DRINKING LAWS AROUND THE WORLD

April 5

2. It’s illegal to be drunk in a club or pub

United Kingdom
In general, if you’re headed to a club or bar without the intention of getting a little turns up, you’re either the designated driver, or you’re lost. These places exist so we can drink somewhere less depressing than our apartments without being judged.

In the United Kingdom, though, it’s still technically illegal for a pub or club owner to let you overindulge. We’re no historians, but we think this dates back to the Prohibition of Fun Act of 1872.


3. No riding a cow while drunk

Scotland
As per older regulations that are still on the books, it’s illegal in Scotland to “propel” a cow while boozed up. We’re going to just imagine that until these laws were enacted, drunken cow races were a constant criminal scourge.


4. Only the government can sell beer higher than 3.5 percent ABV

Sweden
Want to pick up a six-pack in Sweden? You’ll need to head to Systembolaget. No, it’s not an IKEA end table, it’s a chain of government-run liquor stores and, outside of pubs, it’s the only place in Sweden where you can buy beer with an ABV of more than 3.5 percent.


7. If you’re driving, you need your own breathalyzer

France
In most places, owning a breathalyzer is a sign that you’re either a police officer, or someone who has previously been arrested by a police officer.

 In France, though, it’s required if you plan on driving at all.

8. It’s against the law to import beer

Nigeria
Beer is a pretty big industry in Nigeria—the only African country with a larger beer market is South Africa.

Surprisingly, though, you can’t import beer in Nigeria. The law exists to protect local breweries from competition. On the one hand, we can see why that might make sense. On the other hand, some emails we got from a Nigerian prince lead us to believe the economy isn’t exactly booming.

17. The White House of tradition of the Easter Egg Roll started back in 1878, with President Rutherford B. Hayes!

18. Workers in Birmingham, who make the famous Cadbury Creme Egg, produce more than 1.5 million egg delights a year.

19. The idea of the Easter bunny giving candies and eggs is said to have originated in Germany during the middle ages.

No matter how old you are or where you are in the world, Easter is a fun family tradition that never gets old.

From the Easter egg hunts to the taking your first bite into that chocolate bunny, it is not only a special religious holiday that marks an end to Lent, but one that represents the resurrection of Christ, too.

For those who aren’t so religious, Easter marks a long weekend, filled with fun.
