Crowley Offers Holiday Shipping Tips for Caribbean Residents and Businesses

MIAMI, Fla. (PRWEB) November 24, 2014

Its that time of year again! The holidays are around the corner and so are the sales Black Friday, Cyber Monday and all the shopping days beyond. For residents and businesses in the Caribbean, shopping for the holidays can present the challenge of getting purchases home in time for the festivities. After all, most U.S.-based big box stores and online retailers dont ship to the Caribbean. In those instances, Crowley Maritime Corp.s shipping and logistics services pick up where retailers leave off.

To explain the service, Crowley has released a short, informative video that walks online shoppers, as well as those who make purchases in Miami and Puerto Rico, through the process of shipping their purchases home to the Caribbean in time for the holidays (outlined in detail below).

Additionally, Crowley has established the following phone numbers to help shoppers get the information and help they need quickly. The numbers are toll-free +1-888-973-0049 or +1-904-900-2006.

Crowley makes the holiday magic possible through its less-than-container load (LCL) services to get consumer purchases large or small, online or in store home without the headache and without blowing the budget. Once packages are delivered to Crowleys warehouse in either Miami or in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, Crowley professionals handle the rest, including Customs clearance. Online shoppers can use Crowleys Miami warehouse address as if it were their own.

With a single-point of contact, availability of barrels and packaging materials, cargo insurance options and acceptance of credit cards, Crowley makes the entire process simple for shoppers.

Crowley really makes it easy for consumers in the islands, said St. Thomas resident Kishma Vincent, manager, sales, Crowley. We can take your online purchases, or those that you make in-store when visiting the U.S. or Puerto Rico, and ship them all the way home to your door.

We work with island consumers to make sure their needs are met from start to finish in the shipping process, said Tony Otero, Crowley vice president. We can transport virtually any sized shipment from small and medium-sized packages to home appliances, furniture, loaded pallets and more to the desired location anywhere in the Caribbean. Getting shipments in motion is as easy as consigning purchases (cargo) to Crowley then our experts handle the rest.

With weekly sailings, cargo is taken from Miami, Fla., or San Juan, Puerto Rico, to the Caribbean island of residence, where on-site, experienced logistics professionals quickly clear packages through Customs for release to the customer. Crowley can also arrange for additional services, including door delivery, warehousing, consolidation, deconsolidation or even expedited air shipment to a secondary location.

Bring or have purchases delivered to Crowleys Miami facility (10205 NW 108 Avenue, Suite 1, Miami, FL 33178).

Nature didnt teach people how to control their emotions but this 32-year old San Diego man claims he can

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 10, 2014

A cutting-edge, transformational training program teaches emotional skills needed to succeed with others, taught by San Diego native Ryan Moalemi. This training is available for a limited time, beginning October 10, 2014.

Converging scientific evidence continues to prove that emotional intelligence is the most essential ingredient of a happy life. As many who have been there know, EQ can make or break a marriage too. With hard data to validate the ancient teachings of wise sages, people are starting to take their feelings seriously.

Paul Ekman, PhD, one of Time Magazines 100 most influential people is widely recognized for his groundbreaking research into human emotions. Dr. Ekman is one of the most vocal advocates for emotional intelligence training and according to him Emotions can overridethe more powerful fundamental motives that drive our lives: hunger, sex, and the will to survive. Ekman believes that given the tremendous power of emotions, people have a responsibility to learn how to control them.

Ekman believes most emotional problems can be traced back to their automatic nature, which evolved early in human history to deal with primitive threats. Ekman illustrates his point by discussing early human adaptation to threats by well-known prehistoric predators. When facing a Sabretooth tiger, humans didn’t have time to think, they had to make very complex decisions in a split second and if they had to think about what they were doing they would be dead.” His research shows that it is this reflexive response that is responsible for the wide range of emotional misinterpretations and biases. Anyone who has reacted in a manner that was inconsiderate, thoughtless or disproportionate to the situation at hand should be able to understand this phenomenon first-hand.

As Dr. Ekmans work continues to demonstrate, developing an emotional skill set is tremendously useful. While there are many emotional skills that can be learned, the most basic one is deceptively simple. It involves creating more space between an emotional impulse and the (often harmful) action that follows it. According to Dr. Ekman, this skill alone, also referred to as mindfulness, creates massive positive improvements in human functioning.

Beginning October 10th, for a limited time, San Diego native Ryan Moalemi will be offering a series of emotional skills workshops and individual training for those interested in polishing their emotional tool set.

Ryan has over a decade of experience in the field of emotional skills training, with proven techniques to help you raise your EQ. You can visit Ryan on the web for more information on Ryans popular emotional skills training in San Diego.

Closing the Gap in the Short Game with a New Pro Series Gap Wedge

(PRWEB) November 28, 2014

Golfers from the pros to amateurs have been impressed when they have put the Black Magic Gap Wedge to the test on the course. The full line of Black Magic Hybrid Wedges is changing the short game in a great way for players of all levels.

With the no hosel on the face design and extra wide sole plate, this new type Gap Wedge takes the guess work out of short game shots. Players can now have the confidence needed to lay the face open for more height on certain shots without the fear of hitting a shank or the ball rolling too far past your intended target from approaching the green too low. Both pro and amateurs agree this gap wedge feels more natural and comfortable during the complete swing.

There is a distinct difference when you compare a traditional Gap Wedge to the Black Magic Hybrid Wedge. Black Magic Wedge still has an iron face with conforming grooves that offer great control and spin but it also has a hybrid type body that slides easily over the turf or through the sand. This reduces the chance of chunking shots leaving them short of your target.

Black Magic offers some of the Best Gap Wedge Rates in the retail golf, the full line of advance technology in these wedges are priced at a very affordable price and are sold to most parts of the world.

The company encourages players who are truly interested in improving their short game to view the many short videos on everything from tight lies to bunker shots showing how much easier these shots can become using the patent design from Black Magic. There is always room to knock off a few more strokes with a better wedge game.


Black Magic Golf invented a hybrid wedge known as the HWedge with their patented face forward design that Conforms to USGA Rules. The large sweet spot helps to assist with off center shots. Black Magic Hybrid Wedges help golf enthusiasts find new precision and high, soft shots as they make their way onto the green. Black Magic Wedges come in 37
