— Fred Holabird

RENO, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, February 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — RENO, Nev. – Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC will conduct a major Gold Rush Sale – celebrating America’s gold rushes from Georgia and North Carolina to California – in a four-day auction event planned for March 15th-18th, online and in the firm’s gallery at 3555
Airway Drive (Suite 308) in Reno. Start times all four days will be 8 am Pacific Daily Time.

For those unable to attend the auction live, internet bidding will be facilitated by iCollector.com, Invaluable.com, eBay Live and Auctionzip.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted.

“The Gold Rush sale will be nothing short of phenomenal,” said Fred Holabird, president and owner of Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC. “Many fine collections will be sold, but the headliner will surely be the Al Adams collection. Mr. Adams’s specialty is an area few people even know about – the Georgia and North Carolina gold rushes of 1799 thru the 1840s.”

Gold rushes in Georgia and North Carolina? Yes, they happened, and many years before the far more famous California Gold Rush of 1848-1855. It began with the discovery of a single gold nugget in North Carolina in 1799. Nearly three decades passed before truly substantive gold discoveries were made in North Carolina and Georgia, all by men with no training in mining.

The Al Adams collection includes the first gold company stock certificate from 1807; an 1830 letter from a Georgia bank to the US Mint, asking what to do with all the gold coming in; gold lottery tickets for Georgia land; Georgia Gold Rush land deeds with medals, rarely seen by collectors; a Pigeon Roost Mining Company scrip collection (1835-1838); Georgia and North Carolina gold coins; Georgia gold nuggets; American gold specimens; and US Mint documents.

Other items will include a superb Belfast Mining Company scrip collection from the 1830s; gold bullion receipts from Dahlonega, Charlotte, San Francisco, Carson City, New Orleans and the Philadelphia Mint; Gold Rush-era private assayer bullion receipts from seven Western states; and the finest-ever offering of 1840s, 1850s and 1860s mining company stock certificates from the Appalachian gold belt in the east to the three Western states of California, Nevada and Colorado.

The world in which the Georgia and North Carolina gold rushes took root and flourished is hard to imagine in today’s modern time. The U.S. had only recently been formed, and the first coins minted, when that first gold nugget was found in North Carolina in 1799. There were only 16 states in 1800. The number crept up to 24 states by 1821 and remained that way for 15 years.

Development outside the original 13 colonies was slow. The areas south and west of New England were called the “Western frontier”, populated mostly by Native Americans and ex-pats from Western Europe looking for adventure and a better life. Most were farmers and merchants. The scientists remained in Western Europe. Very little was known about geology at the time.

Indeed, the first geologic map was printed in Europe in 1799 and it would be 25-30 years before anything similar was produced in America. That’s what makes the Georgia and North Carolina gold rushes so remarkable. They were forged with no prior mining know-how. Not a single man in the Georgia-North Carolina gold rush had been a miner. It was American ingenuity at its best.

There is much more to the auction than just the Al Adams collection. Also offered will be hundreds of mining artifacts, including many collected from Georgia mines, plus a fantastic numismatic library, inclusive of many rarities. The other major collections include the following:

• Robert Bennett, the highly regarded mining geologist who spent much of his 45-year career working the Goldfield district. He collected high-grade ore specimens from many major mines he was lucky enough to work for. These are dutifully included in the sale.
• Jerry Gray, a longtime collector of gold and turquoise specimens from Carson City, Nev.
• Vern Potter, a national ephemera dealer who’s now retired but his massive collection of Gold Rush-era exchanges, important maps and special documents will be in the auction.
• Robert Fulton, the late collector of rare mining books and former head of the University of Nevada (Reno) in the 1920s. Another collection, similarly themed, has an inscribed Sutro Tunnel book to Melville Atwood from Charles D. Poston (the “Father of Arizona”).

The mining stock certificate collections in the auction “are among the best we’ve ever offered,” Mr. Holabird said. “They include four major collections, including the Laguna Collection of rare Arizona stocks, part of a major Nevada Territorial collection, early California and Bodie collections, antique firearms and rare Tahoe gaming chips.”

The auction also features Gold Rush-era coins (including a complete Hart gold token set, all graded and holdered); Carson City coins; a .999 fine golden egg, custom-made for an Arizona collector in 1982; Gold Rush-era soda bottles in hues of cobalt blue, teal and green from San Francisco, Sacramento and Savannah; Nevada mining cap bottles; Pawnee Bill full-color posters; choice Western mining photographs; and other items from an integral part of Western history.

Color catalogs are available on request, by calling 1-844-492-2766, or 775-851-1859. Also, anyone owning a collection that might fit into a Holabird Western Americana Collections, LLC auction is encouraged to get in touch. The firm travels extensively throughout the U.S., to pick up collections. Last year it went to Boston, Florida, Seattle and New York, among other places.

Holabird Western Americana is always seeking quality bottle, advertising, Americana and coin consignments for future auctions. To consign a single piece or a collection, you may call Fred Holabird at 775-851-1859 or 844-492-2766; or, you can e-mail him at fredholabird@gmail.com.

Chaitanya Cherukuri to give free lecture on successful marketing

Most business owners understand the importance of successful marketing.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Many, however, are "not capitalizing on" the possibilities made available to them, or so says Chaitanya Cherukuri.

"Boost your business," says the experienced marketer, "by improving your marketing game."

Texas-based Chaitanya Cherukuri insists that business owners, both locally and further afield, are failing to utilize the opportunities which have been put before them, especially online.

"It's not all about newspaper adverts or distributing leaflets any longer," says Cherukuri.

In fact, he says, it hasn't been about that for the last two decades or more.

"We're living in a digital age, not an analog one," he laments. "Amazon is coming up on its 25th birthday, and still some businesses are relying almost entirely on outdated, traditional marketing methods. To be competitive, in 2018, you need to up your marketing game, especially online."

Chaitanya Cherukuri isn't entirely dismissive of traditional marketing, however. "It has its place," he admits, "but it's not where the money is."

It's with this in mind that Cherukuri plans to host a free lecture on successful marketing, focusing predominantly on online marketing activity.

"I'll show how much more cost effective a smarter, more streamlined approach to marketing can be for businesses of all sizes," he promises of the free lecture. "It'll mostly cover online marketing activity, but I'll touch on a number of offline methods, too."

Chaitanya Cherukuri will cover email marketing, social media marketing, content marketing, and what's known as "pay per click" advertising, through sites like Google and Facebook, he says.

The lecture will also touch on search engine optimization, A/B testing, mobile-focused marketing, and the importance of clear and concise branding, among other topics.

"Marketing is about much more than it used to be," says Cherukuri. "It can be time-consuming, too, so I'll also run through the benefits of automation, which can be a huge help in running a successful marketing campaign when time constraints limit you."

"People should also realize," he goes on, "that it needn't be expensive. It's as much about being creative as it is about spending huge amounts of money."

Cherukuri promises to debunk a number of online marketing myths and simplify the process of building a successful campaign.

"I'll keep it simple," he says. "I want the lecture to appeal to a broad range of business owners, with all levels of understanding. I'll make sure that everyone can follow what's being discussed, and will offer to simplify things if people are struggling to keep up."

Details of Chaitanya Cherukuri's lecture on successful online marketing, which will be offered to all interested parties in the San Marcos area, will be made available soon.

Prehistoric clay pot effigy of a human head from the Southeastern U.S., 6.5 inches tall (est. $1,000-$3,000).

Native American handmade Chemehuevi basket, crafted circa 1920s in the Colorado River area (est. $1,000-$3,000).

Native American handmade Mission basket from the San Diego area, circa 1920s (est. $1,000-$2,000).

Carved cedarwood and paint whale figure, circa 1920s, from Haida in northwestern Canada (est. $500-$1,000).

Over 450 lots of tribal and Native American artifacts, spanning multiple categories and continents, will come up for bid in the Spring Fling online auction.

We have two extremely well-made Native American handmade baskets – a Chemehuevi basket and a Mission basket from right here in San Diego. The local basket is one of the rarest baskets I’ve seen.”

— Craig P. Helm, Sr.

EL CAJON, CALIF., UNITED STATES, February 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — EL CAJON, Calif. – More than 450 quality lots of tribal and Native American artifacts, spanning multiple categories and continents, will come up for bid in a Spring Fling online auction slated for Saturday, April 14th by Helm Auction, Inc. All lots may be viewed and bid on now, via the platforms LiveAuctioneers.com and iCollector.com, plus on Helm’s site, live.helmauction.com.

The auction features American Indian art, prints and paintings, prehistoric and pre-Colombian antiquities from North, Central and South America and Europe, to include arrowheads, axes, discoidals, birdstones, pipes, celts, masks, carved figures and other stone tools, plus a collection of stone artifacts from the midwestern United States and California, and Western collectibles.

Also offered are Native American and Mexican crafts, such as baskets, Navajo weavings, Pueblo pottery, beadwork, kachina dolls, silver and stone jewelry; 20th century Native American and Mexican jewelry; African artifacts, to include walking sticks, speakers’ staffs, masks, bronze sculptures and beadwork; and Polynesian artifacts, like sculptures, war clubs and shell artifacts.

“I’m excited to see how well the pre-Colombian items do in this sale, especially lots 66 and 76, the quartz crystal mask and the quartz crystal bowl,” said Craig P. Helm, Sr., president and auctioneer of Helm Auction. “I’ve come across many interesting crystal artifacts in the past and these two pieces are some of the best I’ve seen in all my years. I expect the bidders will agree.”

Both the mask and the bowl are Mayan in origin, from Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula, and were pulled from out the same 1960s-era California collection. The mask is in overall good, as-found condition and measures 6 ¾ inches by 5 inches (est. $500-$1,500). The bowl is considered to be in very good condition and it measures 4 ½ inches by 4 ¼ inches by 2 inches (est. $400-$800).

Mr. Helm continued, “We also have two extremely well-made Native American handmade baskets – lot 215, which is a Chemehuevi basket, and lot 208, a Mission basket from right here in San Diego. The local basket is one of the rarest baskets I’ve seen. Again, bidders will respond.”

Both baskets are museum-quality and would be handsome additions to anyone’s collection. The Chemehuevi basket, crafted circa the 1920s in the area of the Colorado River, is made of willow and devil’s claw and has an estimate of $1,000-$3,000. The Mission basket, also circa 1920s, is made from juncus and willow. It’s expected to bring $1,000-$2,000. Both are in good condition.

A prehistoric clay pot effigy of a human head, discovered in the Southeastern United States and standing 6 ½ inches tall, is estimated to realize $1,000-$3,000 and comes with a certificate of authenticity from Helm Auction, Inc. Also, a circa 1960s Hopi (Arizona) frog woman pot made of clay and paint, quite rare and in good condition, 8 inches tall, should gavel for $600-$1,200.

Navajo rug weavings are a big hit with collectors, because they’re so beautiful and display so well. The auction includes an early 20th century wool Navajo example, woven in New Mexico with ten crosses in the image area, 58 inches by 39 inches (est. $300-$600); and a circa 1950s weaving made of wool and dye, woven in Arizona, 24 ½ inches by 30 ½ inches (est. $200-$450).

A nicely carved cedarwood and paint whale figure, crafted around the 1920s in Haida (in northwestern Canada), 10 inches tall by 8 inches wide, in good condition, should command $500-$1,000. Also, a prehistoric knob-top pestle, made of basalt and found along the Columbia River, 10 inches tall and in good condition, is a nice showpiece and should garner $300-$600.

Also sold will be a pre-Columbian Olmec (Veracruz, Mexico) jade plaque with nice polish, 5 ½ inches by 3 ½ inches (est. $300-$900); a pre-Columbian Aztec stone skull, possibly alabaster, from Mexico City, 4 ½ inches by 6 ½ inches (est. $250-$750); and an early 20th century Yoruba (Nigerian) royal beaded crown made of cloth and glass beads, 19 inches tall (est. $200-$600).

Kim Habibi Offers Tips To Build The Perfect Resume To Get The Job You Want

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — One resident has noticed a familiar trend in their community. But that resident hopes to change it into a positive. Kim Habibi noticed not many residents have an updated resume or even started to build one.

"No matter how much work experience a person has, everyone should have an updated resume," says Habibi. "For many of these people, knowing where to start that has become the hardest part."

Because of these findings, Habibi wants to teach a class on resume building. Any person who wants to build their first resume or update their current one can join the class. Habibi adds it does not hurt a person to have a professional, updated resume ready to send to prospective employers.

"There are so many problems people have with building a resume," says Habibi. "Should I put all my accomplishments on there? Which resume rules or trends should I follow? These are just some of the issues people become flustered with as their sit and build their resume."

Habibi plans to address all of these questions and more in one class. But for those not able to attend her class in her community, she lists some rules every resume builder should follow.

Don't List Everything On Resume

Kim Habibi stresses that a person should not put every place they have worked on their resume. The person should think of their resume not as a comprehensive list of work history. But they should look it as a selling point for them as the perfect person for that job.

"If a person is applying for an office job, they should not list their landscaping job from high school," says Habibi. "Look to include only relevant jobs similar to the job you are looking to attain."

Put Your Best Stuff Higher Up The Page

Having the best qualities, jobs, and accomplishments "above the fold" gives the best chance for the employer to catch the best of you. The first impression means the difference in gaining the job or becoming just another person in the stack of papers.

"You do not want to list relevant jobs and accomplishments at the bottom of the page," says Habibi. "Having these at the top means the employer will continue to have interest and keep your resume in the good pile."

Keep Your Resume To One Page
While these topic has become debatable over the years, Habibi stays with the traditional rule of keeping a resume to one page.

"You want your information to be concise," says Habibi. "Keeping it to one page is a good way to force yourself to do this."

If the person has enough relevant and vital experience, training, and credentials that take up more than one page, Habibi says go for it.

"But if you can tell the same narrative on just one page, do it," concludes Habibi.

"In the class, I will teach, attendees will learn how to cut content to fit on one page. But there are tricks such as using a smaller font and coming up with a design that fits all that you want."

Make Contact Information Stand Out
Many people do not know that you don't need to put your address on a resume anymore.

"But every resume should include a phone number and professional email address," adds Habibi. "Also, in the world of social media, listing your profiles would help too."

But Habibi stresses that a person should only list social media profiles if they are suitable for an employer to check out.

"You do not want to lose the opportunity for a job because an employer was turned off by your social media posts," says Habibi.

Kim Habibi does plan to announce time and place of his resume building class shortly.

Help for Teens and Parents as They Cope with Stress from Stoneman Douglas Shooting

Check to see if you’re doing OK

K’Bro app helps teens self-monitor their emotional well-being while providing their parents with
insight and early warnings.

MENLO PARK, CA, UNITED STATES, February 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — MENLO Park, Calif., February 23, 2018 – As the stress of the news from Stoneman Douglas High School mounts, teens are crying out for solutions that can help prevent these tragedies. K’Bro is an app designed to do just that. Kids share their thoughts and emotions while getting advice on how to deal with the challenges they face. Designed as a game, the app anonymously captures data about a child’s emotional state providing him or her with an “Am I OK?” index to inform and guide the child.

The daily index score from the app lets kids not only monitor their own emotional well-being but also see their improvements. If the parent is also a subscriber – which is at the discretion of the child, the parents receive the daily index score, alerting them if there is cause for concern.

K’Bro leverages deep-learning technology with semantic search and natural language analysis of emotions expressed throughout the app experience. Actual comments by the kids always remain private, protecting their privacy and willingness to share.

K’Bro is free to kids so they can gauge firsthand whether or not they are doing OK and can build emotional resilience independently. Parents can choose to subscribe to K’Bro to receive weekly updates and alerts with conversation starter tips provided by the app. The cost of the app is $4.95 per month. For the cost of a latte parents and guardians can bridge the communication gap with their kids.

“Parents worry about their kids, and with good cause,” said Patrina Mack, an entrepreneur and the founder of YouROK Corp. who developed the app. “With substance abuse and suicide on the rise in this age group, K’Bro has been developed to help uncover issues before they become serious. It gives kids and teens a fun way to express how they’re feeling without having to deal with their parents ‘poking’ into their business.”

Dr. Kevin Fleming, Founder of Grey Matters International, a neuroscience-based technology, consulting and advising firm for individuals and their families, says, "We live in an extremist culture—protecting kids from natural learnings needed to grow neural networks vs allowing them to disconnect from the environment completely via their technology addictions. But K'Bro 'gets it right' between parents and kids, allowing the critical conversations to happen with ease. Bravo!"

“Teens want parents to respect their privacy, while at the same time, know when to intervene,” says Mack, the mother of a teenage boy. “Parents can be at a loss for how to communicate with their children and get them the help they need before it’s too late. Kids using K’Bro want to let their parents know they’re hurting but are afraid of how their parents will respond. The gamified app, designed with evidence-based interventions, challenges the user to reach their personal best while providing entertainment value. Parents like K’Bro because they can find out how their child is feeling without having to ask a lot of questions—questions often met with steely silence.”

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S., with boys ages 10 to 14 showing the 2nd highest increase in suicide rates. School shootings show no signs of abating when warning signs are missed. K’Bro can help provide early indicators that something is not quite right, facilitating parental engagement and other interventions.

About YouROK Corp.
YouROK Corp., based in Menlo Park, California, was developed by Patrina Mack, a product development expert and mother of a teenage boy, with industry leading AI experts. The app is a tool to give kids, and their parents, the ability to recognize when an intervention is needed by a trusted peer, parent or therapist. As the child plays the “Am I OK?” game or uses other evidence-based features in the app, K’Bro anonymously captures data about a child’s emotional state that informs the “Am I OK?” index. K’Bro uses artificial intelligence to analyze when a child’s behavior is worrisome—and when it’s not. Parents can choose to subscribe to K’Bro to receive weekly updates by category (school, family, social life and other stuff) and alerts with conversation starter tips while actual comments by kids remain private, protecting their privacy and willingness to share. K’Bro is free to kids so they will know for themselves if they’re doing OK and use the many features within K’Bro to build emotional resilience on their own.
