Enjoy Summer Camp and Sharpen Skills with Brainfuse, Entirely Online!

Brainfuse Summer Skills Camp

Brainfuse Reviews Offers Focus on Skills to Avoid Loss of Academic Skills During Summer

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — During the summer months, Brainfuse offers a unique online summer skills camp to keep kids’ brains sharp through the long summer months. Just because ice cream cones are melting doesn’t mean kids’ brains should be getting mushy as well!

Brainfuse Reviews is one of the nation’s leading online tutoring providers, serving students of all ages. The summer camp is tailored to elementary, middle school and high school students. Classes offered include math, science, social studies and language arts.

Brainfuse offers real-time online tutoring and career assistance from expert instructors. It is available in libraries, schools, higher education institutions and workforce centers throughout the United States and Canada. But Brainfuse Reviews is not just for tutoring during the school year! Skills Camp from Brainfuse seeks to avoid “summer slide,” when students lose academic skills over the summer, which is one of the most significant causes of the academic achievement gap.

Skills Camp does not provide a comprehensive survey of each academic topic, however, or overwhelm students with information. Rather, Brainfuse uses Skills Camp to focus on areas that are academically significant, areas that generated the most tutoring questions over the course of the school year and topics that do not require a significant time commitment over summer vacation.

For students who do want a comprehensive survey of an academic topic, Brainfuse offers SkillSurfer, which fills that need. Skills Camp focuses on letting students spend a small amount of time on academics during the summer, which research has shown makes a difference when they go back to school in the fall.

With the Brainfuse Online Summer Skills Camp, students can take part in lessons, activities, games and flashcards, which are designed to make learning fun. Students aren’t stuck sitting in front of a computer for most of the day when they’d rather be outside. Rather, this Brainfuse Reviews program lets students learn the most important information in small, digestible chunks.

Much of the content has a button at the top that allows users to connect with a live tutor, use the writing lab or send in a question to Brainfuse instructors. There is also a section for parents to help their children with summer learning, so parents can be part of the process and make learning fun for the whole family.

Additionally, the Brainfuse Summer Skills Camp offers test prep classes, so if your child is taking the PSAT, SAT, ACT or AP classes soon, they can sharpen their skills from the comfort of home and feel prepared when test day comes. Visit brainfuse.com to learn more.

I keep my mouth shut most of the time about this….but man… if you can watch the videos that I just posted…”

— Billie Eilish, "Ocean Eyes" Singer

MARINA DEL REY, CA, UNITED STATES, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hollywood actors, authors, social media influencers, nutritionists and everyday consumers will converge on Santa Monica tonight/Wednesday at 7pm (3rd Street and Broadway) to send a dramatic message to Coca-Cola' s CEO James Quincey: kick dairy to the curb. The explosive undercover investigation by Animal Recovery Mission shows horrific, sadistic abuse of calves and cows – all caught on video – at Coca-Cola/Fairlife's longtime "humane" supplier Fair Oaks Farms. Demonstrators, wearing cow masks, will symbolically speak up for these voiceless, helpless animals by holding up a dozen plant-based milk cartons and begging CEO Quincey to do the right thing: switch to plant-based milk! Among those speaking tonight: actresses Fia Perera and Simone Reyes, nutritionist Lisa Karlan and New York Times bestselling author/journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell.

Los Angeles Protest:
Wednesday, June 26th, 7-9pm
Santa Monica's 3rd Street Promenade (Broadway & Third)
https://www.facebook.com/events/197411117860759/

This week, after watching the undercover Fair Oaks video, "Ocean Eyes" singer Billie Eilish begged her 26 million Instagram followers to "be smarter" and go plant-based, noting animals are being "… fully tortured."

As Fairlife and Coca-Cola are hit with another wave of lawsuits over these gut wrenching videos, grassroots protests are spreading across America and even to the United Kingdom! See the events pages below with upcoming protests in London, Houston, Connecticut, Portland and New York City! Still more demonstrations are in the planning stages. A wide array of animal welfare and environmental groups, under the banner Coalition Against Cruelty, are demanding Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey immediately take steps to cut his beverage company's ties with the cruel and environmentally unsustainable dairy industry.

The Coalition Against Cruelty urges Coca-Cola to switch to healthier, more environmentally friendly and cruelty-free plant-based milks. Coca-Cola's own website states, "Fairlife is a partnership between The Coca-Cola Company and Select Milk Producers Inc. Coca-Cola distributes Fairlife products." Fairlife has become embroiled in scandal in the wake of Animal Recovery Mission's explosive undercover investigation of Fairlife Milk's longtime supplier Fair Oaks Farms. The video shows calves being hit, dragged, shot, sat on, left on dead piles and, in other ways, subjected to nightmarish abuse. All this while Coca-Cola insists, in its written material, its partnership with Fairlife is based on "…exceptional cow care, smart and responsible farming, and sustainable agriculture."

Demonstrators implore CEO Quincey to consider the reality: the dairy industry is inherently cruel. For humans to drink cow's milk, cows must be impregnated and – after giving birth – separated from their babies, who would otherwise drink the mother's milk nature intended for them. This is why the Animal Recovery Mission's video shows rows upon rows of calves in hutches, alone, away from their mothers. Protesters point out the obvious. The calves become despondent and don't want to drink the replacement fluid from the rubber nipples. Workers are tasked with getting them to drink it. Frustration ensues, creating an environment ripe for abuse. This is why undercover investigations at dairy farms routinely undercover abuse. No "review" will change the fundamental cruelty of the dairy industry. No arrest of low level workers will get to the heart of the malignancy at the core of this process.

No desperate attempts to blame the messenger will mask the industry's harsh realities. Indeed, that will only confirm the moral bankruptcy of the industry's doublespeak, where shock is expressed over dead piles brazenly left out in the open, where people who systematically exploit animals feign heartbreak and blame underlings when exposed. The playbook has become worn and the world is getting wise to it.

Demonstrators will perform street theater where they will display the readily-available alternatives to cruelty-filled cow's milk. Holding cartons of almond, soy, cashew, oat, rice and hemp milk, demonstrators in cow masks will respectfully beg CEO Quincey, Coca-Cola North America President Jim Dinkins and Fairlife COO Tim Doelman to discard their willful ignorance and admit the obvious: their stated values of integrity and high animal welfare standards are inherently incompatible with dairy. Simply put, there is no nice way to rip a baby away from his or her mother, much less do that to tens of thousands of calves.

Coca-Cola executives have publicly revealed their strategy to premium-ize milk and, thereby, be able to charge a premium. The Coalition Against Cruelty suggests the wiser strategy would be to pivot to the products being increasingly embraced by millennials and Gen Z'ers: plant-based milks. Coca-Cola's stated corporate vision includes the following: "Be a responsible citizen that makes a difference by helping build and support sustainable communities." Animal agriculture, which includes dairy, is a leading cause of climate change, responsible for more greenhouses gases than all transportation combined.

In crisis there is opportunity. A pivot to genuine compassion and genuine sustainability would be applauded globally by animal lovers, environmentalists and consumers in general, all of whom were revolted by the video evidence of barbarism and hypocrisy. Climate change is getting worse and will soon create an economic catastrophe that will devastate all businesses including Coca-Cola. We know this switch can be done because one google search shows it is being done. Coalition Against Cruelty's protests against Coca-Cola will not end until a real change occurs. The time is now.

More than 10,000 to Turn Out TODAY, WEDNESDAY, 5:45PM, at 42nd Street and 2nd Avenue, in NYC

Three Young Orthodox Jewish Women They were Incarcerated this Week for Refusing Army Enlistment Violating their Religious Beliefs

NY, USA, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New York – More than ten thousand Orthodox Jews will gather today, Wednesday, to protest Israel’s campaign to force Orthodox Jewish girls into military services, culminating in this week’s brutal arrest of three girls for refusing enlistment orders. The protesters will express solidarity with their brethren in Jerusalem who are demonstrating for days these arrests. They will decry Israeli Police’s brutal crackdown and arrests of tens of protesters, and will express their support for the arrested girls and will call for the end of the IDF’s tactics to entangle and entrap Orthodox Jewish girls into military service.

Israel is one of roughly a handful of countries to draft women into military service. For all these years, the Israeli government understood the opposition of Orthodox Jews to serve in the military because it is a grave violation of their religion. During recent years, the government started a campaign to coerce Orthodox Jews into military services, and in the past year it went from bad to worse, with the government’s forcing girls from vulnerable backgrounds to join the military.

This campaign is a part of an effort by the Israeli authorities to force Orthodox Jews to assimilate in the larger society. That initiative includes the imposition of annual quotas of Orthodox Jews to enlist in the army, sanctions against the community if those quotas aren’t reached, and curtailments of the exemptions that were granted since the inception of the State of Israel for Yeshiva students from conscription.

At the beginning of this week, three 22-27-year-old Orthodox girls were arrested and kept imprisoned for non-enlistment in the military. Their arrest triggered days of mass demonstrations in Jerusalem and other Israeli cities. In an effort to further destroy the spirit of Orthodox Jewry, the Israeli Police unleashed a brutal response that included the vicious beatings and the arrests of tens of peaceful demonstrators.

The mass demonstration – organized by the Central Rabbinical Congress of the USA and Canada – will take place today, Wednesday, 5:45 PM, at the Israeli Consulate in Manhattan, at Second Avenue and 42nd Street.

More than ten thousand are expected to join the demonstration to express solidarity with their religious sisters and brothers in Israel; call for the release of the three prisoners of Zion for dodging military service and the tens who were arrested for crying out on their behalf; and for an end to the anti-religious campaign by the Israeli government.
“Israel is the only country imprisoning Orthodox Jewish girls for practicing their religion. It’s a shame that we have to turn out in New York to call for a sanctuary for Jewish girls in Israel, but this is sadly a reality. The brutalities must stop,” said Rabbi Isaac Green, a CRC spokesman.

TEALEAVES and UBC Botanical Garden Reveal The Secrets to Finding Your Next Big Idea in The Garden of Secrets

Discover the Garden of Secrets Documentary, Launching worldwide June 27.

The Garden of Secrets documentary is a philanthropic project in support of botanical gardens.

The Garden of Secrets encourages viewers to look at nature from a radically different perspective.

TEALEAVES, luxury tea blender, and UBC Botanical Garden bring together leading experts worldwide in a philanthropic documentary in support of botanical gardens.

We believe that this partnership will raise the profile of botanical gardens and the importance of this critical work, helping us highlight the role plants play service of humanity and the Earth.”

— Patrick Lewis, Director of UBC Botanical Garden

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES , June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, luxury tea brand, TEALEAVES, and UBC Botanical Garden announce the official release of a documentary from their five-year partnership entitled, The Garden of Secrets, launching today at the Conservatory of Flowers, for San Francisco Design Week. The documentary celebrates plants beyond their edible, aromatic, and medicinal properties, and explores botanical gardens as the keeper of ‘secrets’ that inspire plant-based biomimicry and biophilic solutions to the issues faced by humanity today. University of British Columbia Botanical Garden, the oldest university botanical garden in Canada, is home to a collection of 50,000 living accessions representing 7,000 different plants that provide ongoing direction and purpose for the Garden.

Through The Garden of Secrets, TEALEAVES brings together a score of innovators and activists to demonstrate how the wonders of nature – tested and perfected through millions of years of evolutionary trial and error – lend themselves to inspire brilliant solutions. Viewers are exposed to the unique approaches of designers, engineers, scientists and botanists at the forefront of plant-based biomimicry who are making a lasting impact on people, society and the environment.

“Botanical gardens like UBC Botanical Garden are ‘idea libraries,’ places where a wealth of solutions have been assembled near the doorsteps of the scientists, engineers, and designers tackling these issues,” said Patrick Lewis, Director of UBC Botanical Garden. “We are proud to be working with a loved global brand like TEALEAVES, a company committed to biodiversity and love for nature, whose inspiration aligns with our core values. We believe that this partnership will raise the profile of botanical gardens and the importance of this critical work, helping us highlight the role plants play in the service of humanity and the Earth.”

This partnership is an important step in showing the ability and responsibility of global brands to raise awareness for issues of importance while supporting brand communication and positioning goals.

“We want to help create a movement and demonstrate that any organization—whether it be from tea to technology—can adopt biomimetic methods to play their part to make the world more sustainable. Biomimicry offers a means to solve problems baked into the solution, instead of serving as a band-aid. Our unified goal is to blend our mutual love for plants and botanicals with biomimetic design to attract newfound interest in the plants that we take for granted,” says TEALEAVES CEO, Lana Sutherland.

In addition to the short 25-minute documentary, TEALEAVES will produce a series of short videos from the world of experts, which include Dr. Robert Lang, renowned origami artist and NASA physicist, Michael Pawlyn, Director of Exploration Architecture and Architect on The Eden Project, and Denis Hayes, Founder of Earth Day and President of the Bullitt Foundation. The content will serve as an inspiration bank, allowing visitors to take a deeper dive into the world of plant-inspired biomimicry and botany. The short documentary and series will be available online beginning tomorrow, June 27 at thegardenofsecrets.com/documentary. Please visit the link to learn more about the remarkable collaboration between TEALEAVES and UBC Botanical Garden.

400 years has a date at Brooklyn Bridge Park

400 year anniversary of the first enslaved Africans arriving in the English colonies during 1619 will be commemorated on Pebble Beach at Brooklyn Bridge Park

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Don Victor Mooney, a resident of Queens, President, H.R. 1242 Resilience Project, will announced the date confirmed by Brooklyn Bridge Park officials to commemorate the 400 year anniversary of the first enslaved Africans arriving in the English colonies in 1619, and highlight the resilience and contributions of African Americans to the United States.

Mooney's announcement coincides with the five year anniversary of his arrival in the Caribbean by rowboat from the coast of West Africa. Mooney followed one of the many transatlantic slave trading routes his ancestors endured, which countless numbers perished in the sea. With this feat, he became the first African American to row across the Atlantic Ocean. His row was to encourage voluntary HIV testing in memory of his brother who died from AIDS.

H.R. 1242 was signed into Federal Law in 2018. Among other things, on the scheduled final day of the New York State Legislative session, the New York State Assembly voted 111 to 0 to established 400 years of African American History Commission. Historically this day also coincided with Juneteenth, which commemorated the June 19, 1865, announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. State of Texas, and more generally the emancipation of enslaved African Americans throughout the former Confederate States of America. The bill passed the New York Senate earlier this month and is awaiting Governor Andrew Cuomo signature.

Rachelle Loyear, Vice President, G4S

Talks About Must-Have Business Skills for a Security Risk Management Program

We are honored to have Rachelle Loyear, Vice President, G4S, join us “In The Boardroom” to talk about the new G4S strategy”

— Martin Eli, Publisher

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — ****************************************************************************************************************

On May 29, 2019, I performed a Google search for the words “Business Risk Management Approach” in news headlines. I got close to 5,000 results from just the previous 24 hours. I am sure I would get a similar number of results no matter when I searched. The risk management approach to business decision making is a popular topic for business executives, and certainly something that looks like it will stick around. How should the security industry get on board with the risk-based approach to managing our programs? It starts with embracing the inevitable. We WILL be expected to speak the business language in relation to our programs. We WILL need to be able to provide measurable results of risk impact, tolerance, and the effectiveness of mitigation strategies. And, we WILL need new skills and approaches to do that.

***********************************************
Security is More Than a Tactical Response

Change is never easy and for many of us who have been in the security industry for a while, our comfort zone is in the “nuts and bolts” of our day-to-day tactics. We know our details. We understand PTZ, CPTED, IDS, BCM, WPV, EP and any number of other technical acronyms. We know how the organization can protect people and assets from harm.

But in the world of risk-based business management, it’s the security leader who can show the reasons behind all those tactics, and the impact those tactics will have on the overall risk profile and exposures to the organization who will succeed. It’s that strategic security leader who will successfully shepherd the organization safely into the future as risks and tactics shift on a near daily basis. It is the ability to see the risk landscape holistically, and react with the appropriate mitigation at the appropriate time, that will give us and our security teams the edge in ensuring that we can be ready for the future of security risks.

This doesn’t mean that tactical skills are not important. It’s critical that team members have the ability to carry out the entire spectrum of security mitigation activities. However, those tactical skills are simply not enough to ensure that the business understands the need for, and supports the implementation of, the security program. And that is where new skills are needed for the entire team.

***********************************************
Skills for the Security Leader

The skills needed to lead a risk-management based security program are not much different than the skills most of our business partners leverage in managing their business functions. They are skills that, until the last 5 to 10 years, have not been strictly required of the security leader. Until recently, security leaders were typically hired to lead organizations because they were highly skilled security tacticians. Why is that a problem? I have had several conversations with incredibly skilled military and law enforcement professionals who struggled with their new environment when they transitioned into corporate security. They were not prepared when they were handed their first budget, or when they had a discussion regarding company financials, or when they were told that the company would not support the enforcement of a basic security requirement.

Acquiring the additional skills necessary to lead a business-focused security organization is not difficult, but this is a situation where a little education can go a long way.

***********************************************
Business Management

• You should have a comprehensive understanding of the enterprise’s business, assets, business drivers, and organizational goals.
• You should understand the business’s footprint, products, services, and mission, both at the holistic organization level, and at the functional level of your internal business partners. Additionally, be familiar with the market you operate in so that you can discuss both the business and security risks.
• You should work across business lines and understand the individual needs of each strategic partner to more fully understand all aspects of the business.
• You should know how to read the company’s financial reports. A basic business web site can give you easy definitions for terms like PBITA, EBITA, Gross Margin, and more. This will have you speaking the same language as your executives very quickly.

***********************************************
Risk Management

• You should have a good understanding of risk models and be competent in the application of risk management principles to your department.
• You can study one of the major risk management models such as ISO’s or ANSI’s, or even specific financial risk management models to be able to confidently discuss the nature of a risk approach. Having the ability to articulate core risk principles and understand their application throughout your business is key to engaging executives in the risk-based conversation.

***********************************************
Project Management:

• You should have the ability to work with stakeholders across multiple departments and functions to ensure that your security projects meet the risk mitigation needs of your stakeholders.
• In the current industry environment of technology-enabled security implementations and networked systems, the ability to work with technical, engineering, and IT groups to implement complex security solutions is invaluable. An understanding of project management principles from an organization such as SIA or PMI, or, even better, a certification, is a step in the right direction.

***********************************************
Communications and Message Management:

• You should have the ability to communicate your security program and its focus on mitigating enterprise risks through protection activities. This will help you ensure a level of understanding of the value of your program at the executive level.
• Reaching both internal and external stakeholders with information about the security program and its results (in terms appropriate to the audience) will help your business partners understand the need for the security program.
• Report writing is a special skill worth acquiring. So much of the activity in security involves communicating incidents, trends, and threats. Crafting quality reports is a critical communication skill. So critical, in fact, that it will have a dedicated article in this series later this year. A well-crafted report can:
o Drive the risk conversation forward.
o Promote risk discussions within and outside of the security function.
o Provide risk and process transparency to ensure awareness of risk thresholds.
o Ensure continued follow-up of identified risk profiles.
o Provide the basis of executive risk metrics reporting.

***********************************************
Change Management

• This skill is key to enable you and your team to truly move from a task-management security focus to a risk-management security focus. The ability to lead, and to demonstrate and model a commitment to change, will drive the message home to your team, your business partners, and your executives. The risk-based approach is a serious business commitment for your team. It demonstrates your readiness to engage engage with the business on its terms.

***********************************************
Skills for the Security Team

The business and risk-management skills for the Security Team are skills for the whole team, including the security functional leader. Team members, of course, need the tactical skills required to carry out their daily security activities and to protect the organization from harm. They must prevent, contain, or recover from security incidents in accordance with the security risk management plan that was agreed to by the organization’s executives.

In order to effectively operate in a risk management environment, your security team will need these skills:
• Be capable of working with all types of people, from line employees to executives, both inside and outside the company.
• Be capable of managing in a fast-moving and continually changing environment and risk landscape. The speed of change in the next decade will only increase as the world enters an unprecedented era of connection and communication. The ability to be nimble and adapt to new situations will be the differentiator between businesses that thrive, survive, or fail (that goes the same for internal functions in those businesses)
• Have a willingness to monitor the global risk environment. It will be necessary to stay up-to-date on new threats and the latest mitigation tactics for those threats.
• Be able to quickly assimilate new skills and knowledge to meet changing demand, allowing them to stay ahead of the curve in business in an effort to support the organization no matter the security need.

***********************************************

The good news? As security professionals, we inherently understand the concept of “risk”. We are surrounded by leaders and business partners who also understand these concepts. To align the differences in our approach, we just need to adjust our understanding, gain a few more skills, and approach our programs with a management mindset similar to the way business looks at risk. The skills needed to interact in a risk-focused business environment are not hard to learn. With a little effort on the part of the security industry, we can all gain the needed skills to sit confidently in the boardroom and talk about security risk management in the same way as other aspects of the business discuss financial risk management, operational risk management, or any other kind of risk management that is integral to the working day.

Thousands of Orthodox Jews to protest Wednesday Israel's detention of Jewish girls Rejecting Army draft Force

Thousands of Orthodox Jews to protest Wednesday Israel's detention of Jewish girls rejecting Army draft Force

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On the call of the Central Rabbinical Congress of the USA and Canada (CRC) thousands of Orthodox Jews will gather tomorrow Wednesday June 26 for a mass protest outside the Israeli Consulate at 800 Second Avenue, NYC, at 6 PM, in response to recent escalation of the drafting of girls into the Israeli army and the recent arrest of 3 women activists for providing legal advice to girls facing military draft.

Since 2013, the Israeli government has instructed its army to do everything in its power to increase the enlistment of religious Jewish girls. According to Jewish religious law, Jews may not serve in the Israeli army. For girls especially, the draft is seen as an effort to uproot the religious beliefs and lifestyle of the Jewish community.

Originally the Israeli government exempted any girl who sent in an affidavit declaring that she observed the basics of Jewish law. The army still officially exempts religious girls, but they are taking steps to draft them by finding flaws in their paperwork, or by subjecting them to harsh interrogation with the goal of claiming that they are not sufficiently religious.

The Israeli government is currently using its military as a tool to uproot religion from the Orthodox community. But even if the army was a religious environment, and even if they did not draft girls, Judaism teaches that Jews must remain in exile until the coming of the Messiah, pray for the wellbeing of their host countries and not rebel against any nation. Therefore the existence of the State of Israel and all wars it fights are forbidden.

Those who are drafted but refuse to serve due to their beliefs are treated brutally, imprisoned or subjected to other harsh penalties. Peaceful demonstrators, who protest publicly against the government’s policy, are being met with extreme force, dispersed by inhumane means, such as horse trampling, water cannons, and stun grenades, causing bodily injuries to men, women and children.

‘Chomosayich’ is a support organization for those Jewish youth of the community who wish to avoid the draft. The organization set up a watch-guard team to stand outside the IDF recruitment office to monitor and protect the religious youth who enter the building to request their exemptions from serving in the army. Their purpose is to inform young people of their legal rights and shield them from arrest and imprisonment in the event that they do not obtain an exemption. The volunteers of Chomosayich stand at their posts all year round, leaving behind their family obligations, undeterred by the fierce sun and cold rains.

On Sunday, June 16, 2019, three women volunteers of Chomosayich were handcuffed and arrested by Israeli police and interrogated as to who is sending them to stand there. After fierce protests in the streets of Jerusalem, they were released, but banned from coming near the recruitment office for fifteen days. The police seek to ban their standing there for a longer period of time, though they have violated no law.

It should be noted that the State of Israel is one of only three countries in the world with compulsory army service for girls.

Forcing Conscription of Orthodox Jews against their religious principles violates H.R.2431 — 105th Congress (1997-1998) U.S. International Religious Freedom Act of 1998,
And violates Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, passed by the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948, which says that everyone has the rights to freedom of thought, conscience, and religion.

Furthermore, the current Israeli policy of oppressing peaceful protesters against conscription violates the most fundamental right accorded to each human being on the earth: the freedom of expression, the freedom of assembly and the freedom of religion.

Anti-Zionist Jews, as conscientious objectors, deserve the right to be exempt from service in the Israeli army
“These violations of Torah and oppression of its followers are only another proof that the State of Israel does not represent the Jewish religion or the Jewish people.”

WOODBRIDGE, VIRGINIA, REALTOR® JASON MERO EARNS HIS REAL ESTATE BROKER’S LICENSE

“The Broker’s License is a Top Tier Designation in Residential Real Estate and it requires over 180 hours of training, which is great because with this knowledge I can better help my clients.”

— Jason Mero

WOODBRIDGE, VIRGINIA, USA, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jason Mero is an awe-inspiring, exemplary and accomplished Real Estate agent at Weichert Realtors® in Woodbridge, Virginia. He is also a retired United States Army Veteran and recently obtained his Broker’s License. He says, “The extra coursework covers topics such as ethics, contracts, taxes, and insurance at a more in-depth level than what’s taught in a real estate agent pre-licensing course. Also, I learned more about real estate legal issues and how the law applies to operating a brokerage, real estate investments, construction, and property management. As a result, I have a more in-depth knowledge of the real estate business which can help me serve my clients with their real estate needs.

Jason was born in Auburn, New York, and was a volunteer Fireman and Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) at age 17, before graduating from Auburn High School. He also joined the National Guard while still in high school and then became Active-Duty in the Army in 1994.

Jason went to Fort Benning in Georgia for basic training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT) his first Active-Duty Station was at Fort Knox, where he was assigned to the only deployable Infantry Brigades. He transferred to Korea and stationed at Camp Greaves. He says, “We supported the Demilitarized Zones (DMZ), joint security activities and the UN forces. We were the Quick Reaction Force (QRF), capable of rapid response to developing situations and had equipment ready to respond to any type of emergency.”

Jason then transferred to Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama to attend the Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) school and was selected as a Bomb Specialist.

Jason then changed Duty Stations to Tooele Army Depot in Utah before deploying to Kosovo. “We supported NATO forces there supporting the Counter Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) mission.” He states, “We investigated and gathered evidence from house bombings and turned it over to the NATO forces.” He then returned to Fort Irwin to clear, then relocated to Fort Drum in New York.

While at Fort Drum, Jason supported the local law enforcement in New York, Pennsylvania and Vermont. He also worked with the Secret Service and the United States Department, protecting foreign Dignitaries, the President of the United States, The Vice President and their families, including the First Ladies. This involved searches for hazardous device in hotel rooms, travel routes, restaurants and anywhere else the officials would have to go.

Jason then deployed to Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, came back to the U.S. briefly, and was redeployed to Iraq in 2003. “In Kuwait, we supported the Military forces going into Afghanistan, with all of their shipments going through clearances. We conducted training operations and secured the Naval piers, making sure there were no hazardous devices there. We cleared the routes for the Military convoys moving to and from different points. We also cleared areas for additional camps to be built to assist with the creation of Forward Operating Bases.”

Jason then rotated back to Fort Drum and trained for additional overseas missions. He then deployed back to Kuwait to go into Iraq to support the 101st Division out of Fort Campbell, and the 3rd Infantry out of Fort Benning.

Jason served in Mosul before returning to America, where he changed Duty-Stations to Picatinny Arsenal, New Jersey. Here, Jason took on a research and development role. He says, “Our main function was to develop procedures for our EOD Soldiers in the field. Any new Military equipment was designed, tested and developed including unmanned ground vehicles.”

Jason was soon deployed back to Afghanistan to do counter-insurgency, counter-terrorism and counter-IED tactics. He was in our nation’s front line on terrorism: small cells of highly trained, passionately committed investigators, analysts, linguists, tactics experts, and other specialists from dozens of U.S. law enforcement and intelligence agencies, uniting together in the line of fire – far away from home. When it comes to investigating terrorism, they do it all: chase down leads, gather evidence, detain suspects, provide security for special events, conduct training, collect and share intelligence, and respond to threats and incidents at a moment’s notice. As Jason puts it: “We eliminate the bad guys…”

When Jason returned to the U.S., he was sent out to different conferences to talk about his experiences overseas. He then went to Korea for a year assigned as a First Sergeant in the only Army EOD unit in Korea. His responsibilities included supporting NATO forces on the peninsula. His organization supported the US Secret Service and State Department assisting with the protection of V.I.P.’s. He trained, led the Company, mentored the team leaders and made sure they were prepared to go out on their missions to support full spectrum EOD operations.

Jason returned to Fort Belvoir in Virginia and supported the Washington D.C. Capitol region, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and the DoD’s Secret Service missions. He then went to Fort Lee to assist with the further development of EOD. He assisted with doctrine and equipment development – and retired in 2003 after a stellar and dangerous Military career, in service of his country.

Jason is married to his beautiful wife, Melinda and they have two wonderful children, Rian and Lucus. He decided to become a Real Estate agent because he wanted to help guide and mentor fellow Military members and their families in finding homes, since it was always a challenge for him. It was a natural progression for him.

Jason’s areas of service in Northern Virginia are Woodbridge, Fairfax Station, Fort Belvoir, Mclean, Springfield, Stafford, and Vienna.
