I believe that small changes can make a big difference in how women feel about themselves."

Washington, DC (BlackNews.com) -- LiquidSpill.com announced today that Jerome Riley has been newly appointed as Director of Operations. While Riley’s experience with production design and process manufacturing will help guide LiquidSpill’s recent growth, his focus will also be on further streamlining company operations while maximizing overall efficiency.
Riley brings over twenty years experience to LiquidSpill, most recently as Production Supervisor at Elastec, Inc., the largest manufacturer of oil spill and environmental equipment in North America. His accomplishments include collaboration on the successful management of five domestic and international expansion projects, as well as the smooth transition of several key mergers and acquisitions.

The notebooks are returned with an industry leading, full one-year warranty.

G'Natural Products CEO/Founder Roger Gore
Nationwide (BlackNews.com) -- G'Natural Herbal Products, created by Washingtonian entrepreneur Roger Gore, has partnered with Wegmans to distribute the G'Natural product line. The products can be purchased at Wegmans stores on the east coast starting November 16th - just in time for holiday gift purchases. G’Natural is an herbal natural hair and skin care product line developed to enhance personal care regimens for women and men.
Wegmans, the largest expanding grocer chain in the U.S. with stores located in PA, MA, MD, NY, NJ, and VA, has increased their efforts to identify vendors that enhance Wegmans product offerings. The insightful selection of the G’Natural brand will provide Wegmans the opportunity to capitalize on two emerging consumer segments - the health conscious consumer and the consumer with natural hair. G’Natural began the partnership with Wegmans in 2012 at the Woodmore store in Laurel, Maryland. In just 12 weeks of being on the shelves at Wegmans, G'Natural became the number one hair care brand reported by Health Beauty Cosmetics, the number two brand based on unit sales and the number one brand based on gross profit. Wegmans and G’Natural look to duplicate this success throughout the Wegmans network of stores.
Gore, with just an initial investment of $200, founded G’Natural Products in 1996. Once a stylist himself, Mr. Gore saw the need to create natural products to help people with their hair and skin care concerns. Baldness, dry and itchy scalp, and razor bumps are conditions that can plague men and women. "Our products are formulated to show a difference after just one use," says Gore. "If you try it, you will always buy it!"
Gore was featured on Fox 5 morning news and in several top publications. Salon Sense Magazine in 2004 honored him being one of the top 25 most influential men in the hair care industry. Roger believes in staying on the frontline connected to his customers. He constantly pops up at in-store demos to greet customers and help with any hair or skin issues. Mr. Gore stands by his products, and the growth in distribution helps tell the story.
G’Natural products are sold through Mom’s Organic Markets, Nature’s Way to Health, Living Naturally, Natural Health Centers, and a number of health food stores. With the addition of the Wegmans stores, G’Natural Herbal Products will continue to grow and become a leading national natural hair care product company.
Gore, the CEO of G’Natural, states, "It's not only important what you put in your body but what you put on it as well. People really love the Hair and Scalp Conditioner, Hair Growth Oil, All Day Leave-In Conditioner, Honey Glaze Hair Pudding Crème and 5 butter blend based body and hair butter. Our customers are always saying G’Natural smells good enough to eat."
All are invited to go to one of their outlets or a Wegmans store on November 16th and try a G’Natural Product for themselves.

Nationwide(BlackNews.com) -- There has been a lot of recent controversy about unpaid internships, and many former unpaid interns have circled back to file lawsuits against the companies they once worked for. Many agree that interns should be compensated, and should not work for free. But here's a different angle to consider.
The following are three reasons way "unpaid interns" should NOT be paid:
#1 - Because you agreed not to be paid.You applied for a non-paid internship, you were interviewed for a non-paid internship, you were accepted for a non-paid internship. And now you wanna sue the company for not paying you? You well knew what you were getting yourself into.
#2 - Because you had other options.It you wanted to be paid, why didn't you just apply for a "paid" internship? Research shows that there are literally thousands of "paid" internship opportunities available throughout the country each year. Some offer salaries, some offer stipends - either way, they are paying you.
#3 - Because the experience may be more valuable than the salary.If you agree to do an unpaid internship, this does not mean that the experience itself can't be more compensating than a paycheck. Some companies and organizations can give you a very valuable and educational experience that can lead to a high-paying job later. You may even pick up certain skills that others spend thousands of dollars to obtain, not to mention the amazing networking with other professionals that can help you reach your career goals. Even more, imagine how much more fuller and complete your resume will look. Not getting paid could still make the opportunity worth it!
