Comcast Opens Free Xfinity WiFi Hotspot Network to Support Northern California During Storms

Comcast California

Livermore, Calif., January 13, 2023 — To help residents and emergency personnel stay connected during the recent historic rainstorms, Comcast’s network of nearly 147,000 public Xfinity WiFi hotspots throughout Northern and Central California are now available and free for anyone to use, including non-Xfinity customers. How to Get Connected For a map of public Xfinity WiFi hotspots, which are located both indoors and outdoors in places such as shopping districts, parks, and businesses, visit Xfinity.com/wifi. When a hotspot is within range, select the “xfinitywifi” network on a device’s list of available networks and launch a browser. Sign-in options will appear for both Xfinity customers and non-customers. Xfinity Internet customers can sign in with their account credentials and they will be automatically connected to Xfinity WiFi hotspots in their range in the future. Alternatively, they can download the Xfinity WiFi Hotspots app and sign in with their account credentials. Non-Xfinity Internet subscribers need to look for the “Get Connected” section and agree to the Terms and Conditions to be connected. Non-customers will be able to renew their complimentary sessions every 2 hours. **Please note that if a user does not see the “Accept and Connect” button, the hotspot he or she is trying to connect to is in an Xfinity customer’s home and is not open to the public. There are also a few simple, easy things customers can do now to prepare and stay connected, even in bad weather. They can start by downloading Comcast’s free mobile apps: Xfinity My Account — Get updates on outages and report service interruptions. Xfinity Stream — View live TV, get weather updates, and download shows and movies beforehand to watch offline in case you lose power. Xfinity WiFi Hotspots — Xfinity Internet customers can access millions of Xfinity WiFi hotspots available nationwide. Comcast may also send text alerts to customers with information about service interruptions or with tips for restoring their services. Customers can log in to the Xfinity App to make sure their mobile phone numbers are added. Here are a few additional helpful tips and safety precautions: Customers should plug TV’s, modems, and cable boxes into a surge protector to protect them from damage in case of lightning or a sudden power outage. Emergency management procedures dictate that electricity must be restored first and Comcast must receive clearance that it is safe for our crews to begin any restoration work. Should customers experience a loss of service due to a power outage, local power must first be restored before Xfinity video, phone or internet services can begin working again. If customers have electricity but not Xfinity services, Comcast recommends restarting or resetting devices, including wireless gateways, modems, routers, and cable boxes. In some cases, customers may have power back but not their Xfinity services because commercial power has not been restored to our network in that area. Customers should always stay clear of downed power and cable lines in the interest of safety. Forward a home phone number to a mobile phone number so that customers can receive emergency calls even if they are not home. Tips for Comcast Business customers: Download the Comcast Business App and enable Be Anywhere to allow another device to make calls with a business’s Caller ID. Enable Call Forwarding so business calls can be received on mobile devices. Check that the battery backup is working so Voice Services will still be available during a power outage. Make sure Connection Pro services are set up correctly. The automatic wireless backup feature will help devices stay up and running. Comcast is committed to helping customers stay connected to what’s most important to them — all year round. For more information, customers can chat online with an agent, visit Xfinity.com/response or connect with Comcast on Twitter at @xfinitysupport. About Comcast Corporation Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA) is a global media and technology company that connects people to moments that matter. We are principally focused on connectivity, aggregation, and streaming with 57 million customer relationships across the United States and Europe.

Part 3 of Legal & General’s new study on U.S. Gig Economy Workers takes a deep dive into what drives worker choices

Legal & General

63% of respondents say flexibility is the key reason they made this choice 35% of gig workers realize they can make more money working independently—54% of those earning over $100K 46% value the ability to take on more work and make more money 40% of respondents are reluctant to work in a traditional corporate setting for a variety of reasons A third segment of a broad new study sponsored by Legal & General Group ( LGEN, LGNNY ), U.S. Gig Economy, Part 3: Why Gig Work Is Becoming a Choice for So Many, was released today, continuing to explore the changing nature of work in the U.S., people’s relationship to it, and what employers should be thinking about in order to attract back talent. Part 3 of the study explores the why of gig work: why people choose or find their way to the U.S. Gig Economy, and how they describe their own agency within this framework. This third segment of the data-rich study, Why Gig Work Is Becoming a Choice for So Many, finds that the proportion of gig workers who have undertaken working in this model by choice (82 percent) far outstrips those for whom gig work was the next best option when they couldn’t secure a traditional job (13 percent). The study also looks into the top ‘best and worst’ factors of gig work, and how these inform lifestyle choices, sense of security, and financial stability. While flexibility is a top driver, ethical concerns with corporations figure in gig workers’ choices The study found that many workers who consider themselves part of the gig economy have ethical concerns with corporate America, with more than one in ten people surveyed expressing this as contributing to their decision to be self-employed. The study also found that while 16 percent of gig workers feel better able to adapt to a changing culture as a result of working independently, 20 percent reported feeling out of the loop in a fast-changing work culture. At the same time, 61 percent said that being able to work when they want is the best thing about gig work, and 46 percent said that gig work provides the ability to take on more work and thus make more money. On the negative side, 67 percent said that not having access to retirement plans and other benefits is a key drawback, and 62 percent didn’t like having to pay for their own health insurance. “The nature of work and the workplace changed radically due to the pandemic, and it’s inevitable that some of these changes will stick. The clear preferences expressed by American gig workers reflect the way people want to work now—and this research gives broad hints as to what we should be offering as employers. While few of our survey subjects would consider working in a corporate setting, employers can take heed to better design their workplaces around the flexibility that gig workers currently seek. If they want to open the door to attract the types of workers who would otherwise have wanted to stay in the gig economy, employers will need to continue to evolve their offerings to maximize job satisfaction.” Sir Nigel Wilson, Chief Executive, Legal & General Group Multiple factors Legal & General’s study looks at the complex and multifaceted societal and financial factors behind independent work. “While this wave of gig workers expressed certain insecurities and anxieties, they are clearly propelled by positive incentives, whether it’s multiplying their opportunities to make money or take on multiple different forms of work. But above all, they are seeking freedom and flexibility. The gig economy has its drawbacks, notably around financial security and often lack of access to basic health and social needs, but it serves a function for a broad swath of workers.” John Godfrey, Director of Levelling Up, Legal & General Group Future segments of this research will look in depth at the extent to which gig workers meet their health and life insurance needs; the fierce independent mindedness of gig workers; their outlook on retirement planning; what it would take to get gig workers to go back to the traditional workplace; and the pandemic fallout for gig workers. Notes to editors The information contained in this press release is intended solely for journalists and should not be relied upon by private investors or any other persons to make financial decisions. About the Study Legal & General undertook proprietary research into the attitudes and changes U.S. gig workers are experiencing in relation to their work situations and financial outlook. The U.S. Gig Economy research was compiled using original survey data from 1044 U.S.-based workers age 18 to 60 who are neither students nor retired, and who earn at least 60% of their income from gig work. The data was collected via online survey fielded to individuals sample sourced from YouGov’s US panel. The Legal & General-designed survey was scripted and hosted on Gryphon, YouGov’s proprietary survey scripting platform, and the field work took place between August 19 and 31, 2022. Key demographics such as age, gender and region were allowed to fall out naturally. 20 questions were designed to understand facts about earnings, drivers of and barriers to gig working, financial product ownership & financial capacity when coming across adverse situations, and future expectations of being involved in the gig economy. Verbatim comments were captured by Legal & General in research carried out in June 2022. About Legal & General Group Established in 1836, Legal & General is one of the UK's leading financial services groups and a major global investor, with over £1.4 trillion ($1.7 trillion) in total assets under management* of which a third is international.

Athenai Praises Establishment Of House Select Committee On Competition With The Chinese Communist Party

Athenai Institute

The Athenai Institute, a non-partisan, student-founded 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to removing the influence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from colleges and universities throughout the country, praised the bipartisan vote in the House of Representatives to establish the Select Committee on the Strategic Competition Between the United States and the Chinese Communist Party. By a vote of 365-65, the House voted in favor of the resolution establishing the Select Committee. With strong support on both sides of the aisle, today's vote demonstrates that Americans' elected Representatives are following the lead of the American people and standing up to the corrosive influence of the CCP, domestically and around the world. A Pew poll last spring found that 83% of Americans said they had little or no confidence in Xi Jinping to “do the right thing in world affairs.” "The American people overwhelmingly oppose the CCP's efforts to establish influence over our vital governing and cultural institutions," said John Metz, Athenai's President. "On campuses around the country, young people from all corners of the political compass are leading the movement against the CCP by calling on their universities to financially disentangle themselves from its abuses and protect academic freedom. It is encouraging that members of Congress are joining us in this fight. When the American people and our elected Representatives stand together, we can and will beat the CCP." "Today's bipartisan vote shows how committed the 118th Congress is to standing firm against the CCP," said Congressman Neal Dunn, Honorary Congressional Co-Chair of the Athenai Institute. "I look forward to working with the student leaders at Athenai to ensure that this committee prioritizes steps to fight the CCP's financial influence in our academic institutions." ### Athenai is a non-partisan, student-founded 501(c)(3) formed in May 2020 to remove the influence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) from American college campuses. Athenai advocates for student governments and university administrations to close Confucius Institutes, divest investments and other financial entanglements with the Chinese government, and establish policies and mechanisms to prevent the CCP from encroaching on academic discourse and the independence of academic institutions.

AuthorityTech Captures Tech Unicorn Market, Doubles Down on Results-Based PR Model

Raymond Bolger

In today’s marketplace, one common theme that’s a constant can be described in a single word: innovation. It defines the hypercompetitive world of tech startups and will continue to do so as the degree of competition intensifies in an increasingly fierce economy. AuthorityTech, an invite-only, highly exclusive PR firm that specializes in the technology startup space, understands in detail the challenges faced by companies seeking to separate themselves from the pack and truly stand out for their key target audiences. Founder and CEO Jaxon Parrott and CSO Christian Lehman recently sat down with me in their Miami office to explain how AuthorityTech internally leverages innovation, reinventing the Tech PR model in the process. “We live in a world where technology has changed and will continue to change the very fabric of how companies attract new business,” Parrott said. “Public relations firms have been around for decades, but unfortunately many have not adapted to the changing landscape that technology has forced upon them. Tech startups need great digital media placements that tell a story their customers and investors understand on a deep level. They also need high-quality content produced fast to compete, let alone stand out in their market. At AuthorityTech, we’ve always believed in leveraging technology to move quicker and smarter by focusing solely on inputs that generate results.” As the tech startup space continues to grow rapidly, AuthorityTech is doubling down on its results-based model. As Lehman put it, “No startup cares about how many hours a PR firm works, they care about how many tangible valuable media placements they can secure, and how well they can be positioned for new customers and investors.” This model has paid off heavily for AuthorityTech, as they have grown their client base to include several tech unicorns in the past year alone. To stay on course with its strategic north star, AuthorityTech doesn’t work with just any startup. As Parrott explains, “We only want to work with tech startups that dream big and are in alignment with our mission, which is to highlight companies making a contribution to the world through great technology that advances humankind.” Going into 2023, AuthorityTech plans to continue pursuing its results-based model with singular focus, and believes it has the ability to out-compete even the most established PR firms. “If you focus on one thing, and only one thing long enough, you can win against even the most dominant competitors who are trying to do everything,” Parrott said.

They can also help improve clarity by restructuring sentences and paragraphs and adding transitions where necessary. In addition to these editing tasks, they can provide feedback on content to make your document more engaging. This includes providing suggestions for improving the flow of ideas and strengthening arguments. By taking advantage of professional editing services you can create documents that are precise, polished, and professional. What is the difference between proofreading and editing? Proofreading and editing are two distinct processes that together ensure the highest quality of writing. The main difference between proofreading and editing is the scope of each process. Proofreading focuses on small details such as grammar, punctuation, spelling, and formatting, while editing looks at the more substantial elements of your document such as content, structure, and flow. Professional proofreaders go through documents line-by-line to correct errors, whereas editors look at the big picture to provide feedback on how to improve clarity and strengthen arguments. Both processes ultimately result in a piece of writing that is polished, professional, and ready for publication or distribution. Is it worth paying an editor? Absolutely! An experienced professional editor can help you create and refine a high-quality document that effectively communicates your message. Professional editing services ensure accuracy and clarity by removing errors in language, formatting, structure, and content. Furthermore, working with an editor can help you save time and energy as they quickly identify improvements that need to be made to improve the overall quality of your work. Ultimately, hiring an editor is well worth the investment since it will guarantee that the end product meets the highest standards of writing. What are types of proofreading? There are a few different types of proofreading that can be used to ensure the accuracy and quality of writing in any document. The most common type of proofreading is known as content-level proofreading, which involves correcting errors in language, structure, and formatting. Structural proofreading focuses on checking for consistency in headings, formatting, fonts, and margins throughout the document. Copyediting also looks at more substantive elements such as the organization of ideas and the clarity of arguments. Finally, technical proofreading looks at issues with punctuation and spelling accuracy. All these forms of proofreading ensure that documents meet the highest standards before they are published or distributed. How much do proofreading services cost? Online proofreading services are often significantly more affordable than traditional proofreading services, especially when taking into account the time and effort saved in not having to travel to a physical location. Because of this, many businesses and students find that online proofreading services provide an excellent compromise between quality and affordability. Prices for online proofreading services can vary depending on the length of the document and the level of detail needed from the service provider. Can I pay someone to proofread? Definitely.

Many professional proofreading services are available online, making it easier than ever to find an experienced and qualified proofreader that can help you with your needs.

Million-Dollar Owner Mike Geygan Retires & Reflects on 31-plus Years in Business After Selling Minuteman Press Franchise in Lebanon, Ohio

Minuteman Press International Inc

Minuteman Press in Lebanon, Ohio, has been sold by retiring owners Mike and Karen Geygan to new owners Frank and Melissa Hiti. The longtime design, marketing, and printing center has been operating for over 40 years, and Mike and Karen are retiring after owning the business for over 31 years. All of the staff have been retained and will keep working to serve Minuteman Press clients in the community. Minuteman Press in Lebanon is located at 101 Dave Avenue, Suite E, Lebanon, OH 45036. New owner Frank Hiti says, “We are really excited to take over a business that has such an outstanding reputation in the community. As business buyers, we are blown away by the strong foundation that Mike and Karen Geygan built with Minuteman Press in Lebanon. This business is a well-oiled machine thanks to their hard work. Everyone has been so welcoming to us as new owners, and we will continue the path that Mike and Karen set by being a fixture in our community and make sure our business takes care of our customers.” Frank continues, “I am an engineer by trade, with a business degree. I spent my entire career in automotive manufacturing doing sales, engineering, project management, and procurement. I climbed the ladder but I always had that desire to be an entrepreneur. I felt I was in a good position to find the right opportunity and the right business to purchase. Everything I’ve experienced in the last few weeks since purchasing Minuteman Press has been even better than I expected. The support has been phenomenal from our local field rep Ryan, our team here in Lebanon is simply fantastic, and it’s so much easier to hit the ground running thanks to the strong customer relationships that Mike and Karen Geygan built. They earned their retirement and it’s been a win-win situation all-around.” History of the Business When Mike and Karen Geygan first purchased an existing Minuteman Press franchise in April of 1991, they took over a business that needed some work. Mike reflects, “We bought a 12-year-old shop and we needed to upgrade our equipment and clean things up, so that’s what we did. We liked the business model and the industry, and I really wanted to be involved in my community. Lebanon, Ohio is a rural town, and it just seemed like a unique place to own a business.” At the time, Mike worked in industrial sales and he liked that Minuteman Press wanted to him “to focus on running the business, not running a press.” He continues, “We looked at small businesses, other franchises, and another printing business. With printing, I liked that I would be selling to customers who could become repeat clients and order more from us. I also found the business hours and employee structure to be appealing, and with Minuteman Press, the royalty cap was a huge plus.” On that point, Mike shares, “Minuteman Press is a franchise that really cares about our success as franchisees. I feel that we get more help and support for the limited royalties we pay than other franchises who don’t have a cap. It’s not just about the dollars, it’s about the work they put in. They adapt and stay current, and the tech team is really cutting edge with everything they put into FLEX.” Another thing that really stands out to Mike after 31-plus years is the fact that he has always been able to run his business in a rural town like Lebanon in the way he wanted that best fit his community. “I always liked that Minuteman Press was hands-off in the sense that we could do what we needed for our business. We can do what works for us in our marketplace and go in the directions we want to go with our products and services as well as our pricing. They never asked me to charge $5.99 for a Big Mac because that’s what New York is charging.” Mike also credits his wife Karen Geygan for really solidifying the business from the financial side of things. “Karen worked on the financial side of the business and made sure everything was handled in that area. Her contributions over the years have been invaluable to our bottom line.” Growing to a Million-Dollar Business From 1991 to 1998, Mike, along with his wife Karen and his staff, were able to steadily build the business. They first joined the President’s Million-Dollar Circle in 1998 and they continued to hit that impressive milestone every year for the next 24 years (with the exception of 2020). Mike shares, “The biggest thing for us early on was growing through word of mouth referrals. At that time, I found that most printing companies in our area were not ‘good printers’ in the sense that their quality wasn’t great and they didn’t meet deadlines. We stepped in with printing that looked better and was always on time, and as a result we developed an extremely good reputation.” Mike continues, “We grew significantly based on those two key areas of quality and service. After 31 years, I can’t think of one customer that we lost because we dropped the ball. It’s all about communication. We talk to our customers, and we are honest with them. If we need to fix something or deliver on a tight deadline, we find a way to get it done.” He adds, “I have found that the shops that are the most successful operate with a sense of urgency. You have to be proactive. If a job needs to be delivered Friday, get it done early in case a machine goes down, paper or supplies don’t show up, or an employee is out unexpectedly. Don’t wait until Friday morning. The quicker you know something is wrong, the easier it is to find a solution. That is what’s always worked for us.” “We went from 100K in yearly sales when we first started to about $1.3 million per year. We got very comfortable and now it’s time to retire.” -Mike Geygan Today, Minuteman Press in Lebanon is a digital print shop with six full-time staff and two part-time staff. Mike shares, “We specialize in digital printing and do a good amount of mailings. We are in a rural town and so we do a lot of saturation mail for local school districts and other clients such as a large HVAC company and an addiction treatment facility. We also saw that during the pandemic, our community needed products such as large format printing, labels, posters, and signage.” Speaking of the pandemic, Mike says, “We were fortunate enough to be cushioned from serious impacts in 2020. In 2021, we found ourselves back at 2019 levels, and in 2022, we were up 20% over 2021 sales.” With new ownership coming in, Mike sees ripe opportunity for growth. “We have a nice foundation in place but I also see room for growth in wide format, apparel, and automation mailing. There are a lot of studies that show print is more effective than other forms of marketing. I think it’s important to mix in different ways of marketing and use print, internet, and social media channels.” Selling the Business When asked what it was like to work with Minuteman Press International to sell the business and secure his exit strategy, Mike shares, “I first had the thought of selling in March of 2022. I was turning 63 in July, I mentioned to my Regional VP Gary Nowak that we were starting to think about selling the business. My original intent was to retire by 65, and conventional wisdom told me that it would take some time to complete the sale. We were not intending to sell this year and weren’t ready to actually list the business for sale.” Mike continues, “Gary informed me in early July that he had potential buyers who he was already in contact with, and I figured there was no harm in meeting with them. As it turned out, the meeting with the buyers went well, and we ended up getting an offer fairly quickly. By September, the agreement was signed, and the sale was completed in November of 2022.” From his perspective, Frank Hiti says, “When we started looking to buy a business, I came across a business for sale ad from Minuteman Press. Gary Nowak reached out to me and as we were discussing a couple of different opportunities, we were introduced to Mike Geygan. We liked what we saw on our end with Minuteman Press in Lebanon and now during the transition, we are absolutely thrilled with how things are turning out. We bought the right business for us from great people in Mike and Karen Geygan.” “Our attitude was that if we get a good offer for the business, we would sell, and if we didn’t get an offer we were comfortable with, we wouldn’t sell. We really liked the buyers Frank and Melissa Hiti. We sold the business at a good time for us at a price we were comfortable with before we needed to sell, and while things were going well.” -Mike Geygan Mike shares the following three keys to selling a business: 1. Have clean financials. It’s important to be properly prepared for any questions and document requests, and to know your numbers. 2. Run a solid business and invest wisely. My dad was a financial planner, so in addition to running our business, we took care of ourselves on the personal investment side. That really adds up over the years, so be smart about how you invest and start early. 3. A business where the owner is doing everything is worth less to buyers. The company needs to be transferrable to new ownership. Delegate responsibilities to your team, and cross-train your employees. The more they know, the more valuable your business will be at the time of the sale. Final Reflections & Advice for Others As Mike and Karen transition to retirement, he reflects on what he’ll miss most. “Everybody says it’s the people that make the business, and that’s so true. We love our customers and our employees; they are like family to us. I also love being involved in the community and served on many local boards. Because we deal with such a broad variety of customers and organizations in the printing business, I was one of the people who knew everyone and so everyone would come to me. I simply loved being able to help and connect others.” He adds, “Our customers are happy for us, and I am very impressed with our local Minuteman Press field representative Ryan McIntyre who is helping with the transition, as well as the new owners Frank and Melissa Hiti. I know the business is being left in great hands.” Mike’s final piece of advice for others is this: “There are three functions that have to happen in order to be successful: 1. Find the business; 2. Get the jobs out on time; 3. Get customers to pay for your products and services. When you are small and just starting out, these functions may fall to the owner. However, if you want to grow, you need to delegate responsibilities and develop a company, not a monument to the owner. Remember, it’s a team effort.” Minuteman Press in Lebanon, Ohio, is located at 101 Dave Avenue, Suite E, Lebanon, OH 45036.
