Hello, I am looking for New Jersey families, couples, friends for a series filming in March to May who are looking to get a new puppy.I wanted to find someone in Ocean City, firstly because I love New Jersey but also because it is a great surfing spot and we might get some good water dogs!Some more information about the series: The series is being made by a company called Blast Films, for a well-respected channel specializing in animal-related programming. The series follows families, couples and singles from around the U.S. who are about to become owners of puppies. It’s a light-hearted and entertaining look at some of the challenges and triumphs involved when training a puppy, whilst providing touching insights into the lives of the new owners as they embark on this new adventure.For both new owner and puppy it will be a journey of discovery, discipline, patience and love – a seismic shift in the family dynamic. We are looking to speak with breeders like yourselves who might be interested in being involved in the project, having one of their puppies followed to their new homes. We will then follow six puppy owners for 10 weeks.By filming a couple of days a week with each family in their home, we will track the progress of both owners and puppies over the first couple of months, capturing the magic (and not so magic!) moments that only a puppy can bring. We are looking for preferably first-time owners, or it being the only dog in the house but that is not paramount.Contact [email protected] or visit Facebook.com/tvpuppy. The series is from blastfilms.co.uk.— News release from Blast Films
You’re all talk and no actionYou may think simply speaking up at work is the key to professional success, but remember if there’s no real follow through, you won’t be taken seriously. Saying you will complete a certain task or presenting new ideas to your boss are only commendable if you put your plans into action. So, if you want your boss to appreciate your creativity, make sure you put your money where your mouth is.You’re constantly saying how busy you areYour boss wants to see that you’re invested in your work, but reminding him or her of how stressed you are will only make you look more frazzled and disorganized. If you are doing your work well and staying on track to meet your goals, your work should speak for itself. Don’t try to prove that you are working hard by bringing up how heavy your workload is. This may backfire on you and cause you to look incapable of handling multiple responsibilities.You are too dependent on othersBeing a team player is vital to office collaboration and productivity, but it is also critical that you be self-sufficient. Your boss does not have time to micromanage you. You may think that they will appreciate you constantly bouncing your ideas off them, but they will place more value in your ability to be independent. Stop looking for constant reassurance and impress your boss with your confidence. 74SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with CUInsight.com.

Ireland have called local youngster Matty Hadden into their World Cup squad as coach Mark Aston steps up preparations for their opening game against Fiji. “When I made the phone call, he could not contain his excitement,” Aston said. “It’s a great opportunity for him to mix with the likes of Brett White and Pat Richards.” Aston’s 24-man squad came together at the University of Central Lancashire, which will be their base for the tournament, at the weekend and, having opted not to play a warm-up match, will go straight into their potentially crucial clash with the Fijians at Rochdale on Monday week. “Some of the guys have played 34 or even 38 matches this year and we didn’t want to fatigue them,” Aston said. “We’re trying to keep them fresh but we’re intensifying the training now and we’ll go hard against each other. “We’ve had two sessions so far and we’ll have another eight before our first game. We haven’t had the luxury of going to South Africa for a training camp but we’re coming together. It’s a case of blending individuals into a collective and the group are getting close.” Ireland are in the same group as England and favourites Australia, with three teams to go through to the quarter-finals. Hadden, who spent the 2013 season with Championship One club Oxford, replaces Warrington back-row forward Simon Grix, who played in the Super League Grand Final earlier this month but has withdrawn from the Ireland squad in order to undergo close-season surgery. He is the latest high-profile absentee for the Irish, who are also denied the services of Kyle Amor, Shannon McDonnell and Chris Bridge, but Aston says Hadden jumped at the chance to join the camp in Preston.
