Towing Services for The Underheard

Towing Services

Most of us don’t plan in advance for our automobiles to break down but when it does happen, it’s important to have help as soon as possible. It often takes place in a most inconvenient location, but if you know how to hire a towing company properly, you can get help quickly and easily.

The most important consideration for hiring a towing company is if they are legally able to operate in the area. They should have licensing and insurance, both of which should be prominently displayed and easily identifiable. Prior to the time that they hook up the automobile, you should ask them for proof of the fact that they have those documents. If they balk at the request, you can simply send them on their way and contact a legitimate company.

Professionalism is also a very important aspect when choosing a reputable towing company. It doesn’t matter if it is the person you’re talking to on the phone or the driver that shows up to tow the vehicle, they should always maintain a professional attitude. You can often research this type of information online by looking into customer feedback.

Although most of us are probably not up to speed on the latest machines and equipment that are used by Appleton towing companies, it is important to look into it prior to having your vehicle towed. Is it the right type of equipment for your needs? Make sure you know in advance.

Finally, their experience is a very important part of hiring a towing company. It can do more than simply makes you comfortable with your choice, they are more likely to take care of your vehicle in a way that will avoid any damages. You can often find this information online, either on their website or perhaps from information you find on Google.

60 Days Later

Although Underheard in New York is currently on hiatus as we figure out the project’s future, we wanted to thank all of you who engaged with Danny, Derrick, Albert and Carlos throughout their time as Underheard in New York tweeters. Not only did you listen to their voices and interact with them on Twitter, but you also unexpectedly provided them with material things to help them better their lives. Due to the great success of they were able to donate a refrigerator to a local New York shelter.

And to a greater extend you guys provided them with something invaluable: a restored sense of confidence in themselves and a newfound faith in the kindness of strangers. But why take our word for it? Watch the video below to find out how Danny, Derrick, Albert and Carlos feel about their experiences with Underheard in New York.

As you all know their SMS cards expire every thirty days. I went down to the Rescue Mission to refill their card for the third straight month thanks to your donations.

If you are interested in donating SMS cards or old cellphones to help keep Underheard going as we sort out the program’s future – the project currently lacks funding – then please feel free to contact us at underheardinny@gmail.com.

Common Medical Assistant Interview Questions

You have submitted your fantastic resume and cover letter to a physician’s office, and they invited you to an interview. You are nervous and excited. Yet, you have no clue what you are going to say. It’s not like you are interviewing for your first pizza delivery job. This is a real job. All that hard work has paid off, thus it is time to prepare for the interview. Medical assistants are the ones who are most in touch with the patients. Therefore, it takes a particular type of person to undertake this job and its position. The questions in the interview are specifically tailored to filter those who cannot handle it out. Here is a list of most common medical assistant interview questions and answers for those applying for a position as a medical assistant.

What is the difference between a nurse and a medical assistant?

It is commonly confused that a medical assistant and nurse are the same. Though, this is not the case. If you are new to the field, then the employer is a lot more likely to ask this question. Make sure you answer this question precisely, as it speaks about your knowledge of the medical field. To help you out, the main difference between a nurse and medical assistant is that a nurse is more highly trained and can perform procedures like giving injections. On the other side, a medical assistant performs more menial but necessary tasks such as helping their patients wash and dress.

Describe a difficult experience with a patient and how you handled it?

This is a scenario you need to be prepared for. Think of a story from your previous employment, how you handled it and describe how you resolved the issue. The office you are interviewing for is completely aware how demanding the position is, therefore they need to know how you will respond to a certain situation. End on a positive note, and remember to be brief.

How would you rate your communication skills?

If the employer asks you a question like this one, always give a concise answer. Say that you would definitely rate your communication skills as strong as you, for example, used to work in customer service for several years and was always praised for having great communication skills. You do not have to lie, but try to prove that you are the person they need.

What are things you might not like about medical profession?

This is the question every interviewee should be prepared for. It’s a very good way for the employer to assess and calculate how comfortable you are in the field and how actually genuine are the experiences you might claim to have. Unfortunately, many people use this as an opportunity to gripe. That’s wrong. Refrain from doing so. You need to keep positive attitude. Instead of crying over the long hours a medical assistant has to put up with, always phrase it differently, for example, how it would be better if one was actually given increased responsibilities to handle.

How do you protect the rights of patients?

Be careful on this one. The response to this question could make, or break, the interview for you. Part of your M.A education is centered around confidentiality laws for good reason. Violating the privacy laws not only puts your patients at risk, it also sets you for severe penalties from the Federal Government. In other words, if a patient cannot trust their most personal information and data with you and your office, why would they even stay?

Hopefully going over these 5 common interview questions can help you land that medical assistant job you trained to become! Good luck.

What’s Next for Underheard in New York?

Underheard in New York was created as a thirty day initiative to give the homeless population of NYC a voice. You listened- so many people listened.

We received a lot of messages asking about the future of the project and if Danny, Derrick, Carlos and Albert will keep tweeting. We think they will- regardless of whether it’s with
Underheard in New York or not. A community formed around them and that
has impacted their lives.

We’ve read the inspirational messages and encouragement you’ve sent their way, and so have they- Albert mentioned on Thursday that he now has “a little smile sometimes.” He didn’t used to smile that often, but now that he has found out how caring people are around the world he is “able to crack a little smile sometimes.” They’re all so grateful to have you out there listening.

They’re also grateful for those who wanted to do more that they are offering college grants for any upcoming students.

Derrick received a phone call from NY Giants player Steve Smith, as well as a ticket to an upcoming game and a fundraiser for the NYC Rescue Mission in his name. He received an offer of a job interview, which he went on Friday morning.

Albert had his $200 worth of transit tickets paid, something that goes beyond just the money he didn’t have. Instead of ignoring the problem, its been taken care of and there will be no legal stumbling blocks in his future as he pulls himself back to his feet.

Carlos has created ‘angels’ out of followers, and received an offer of office space, a $30 metro card so he doesn’t have to walk 2.5 hours to the library each day.

Danny found someone to write down his life story, one which now has a much happier ending- @craftsygirl found his daughter through social media and the two of them reunited after 11 years apart.

So what happens now? With the money left in our budget, we put another 30-days of unlimited texting on each man’s phone. We don’t believe their stories are done being told.

We also don’t believe there aren’t other stories to tell. Underheard in New York is working with BBH, the agency that gave us the opportunity and guidance to create this project, to develop an expansion model that would bring Underheard to your own city. We will keep everyone updated as things develop here- we’re very excited to continue the project and get you involved.

Our blog updates will eventually stop, and we won’t be posting twitter updates so much ourselves, but this project was never about us. We’ll have one last video to recap the month and as always, you can reach us at underheardinny@gmail.com or @underheardinny if you have questions, suggestions or anything in between.

Day 28

It’s been quite awhile since we initially mentioned Albert’s two transit tickets – or maybe it’s that so much has happened recently that two weeks feels like an eternity.

In any case we’re happy to announce that Chris from Australia offered to pay for Albert’s two tickets. Today, Willy and I went with Albert to the Metropolitan Transit Authority Adjudication Bureau in Brooklyn to pay for those tickets.

Needless to say Albert is relieved to have that weight off his shoulders. We’re not sure what problems Albert might have faced if the tickets went unpaid. See his response below.

Day 27

Last week was eventful for Derrick – so eventful that we weren’t able to fit everything into our blog!

In addition to being featured in the New York Times City Room blog and receiving a call from Steve Smith, who encouraged his Twitter followers and Facebook fans to donate to the NYC Rescue Mission, Derrick also received a ticket to a 2011 season New York Giants game. Not only will Derrick get to attend the game, but he’ll also have a chance to hang out on the field during practice. Thanks to Elliot Shriftman for making it all possible!

As if that weren’t enough good news Derrick was able to line up three job interviews for this week, one of which contacted us to relay their offer to Derrick. Send some encouragement and good luck to @awitness2011 this week as he works these job interviews to his daily routine. We all hope that Derrick has good news to tweet by the end of the week!
