I Found Such a Nice Place for My New Business

I found the best place to run a pub out of. The only issue that I had with it is that it is an older place, so it needed some work and the place was kind of dark. I ended up finding a led highbay light that lit the place up wonderfully. I really like sunlight, but that is just not a possibility, and the light I got is the next best thing. It really makes the place look classy, day or night.

I needed to do some work to a variety of things. Some of the plumbing is a bit old, so I had a long talk with the landlord about that. Perhaps the previous tenant didn’t have a business that would rely so much on the state of the plumbing, but as someone who’s business is all about serving drinks, foods and washing plates and dishes, I needed everything to work. I did not want to have to deal with the plumbing stopping up and putting a halt to my business for days or even weeks. He promised he would do that. (more…)

Hop Uses for Health Purposes

I would like to find out some more information about hops uses when it comes to medicine and your health. I know that it has plenty of good uses when it comes to beer, but I heard that it is actually really healthy for you, and so I was interested and decided that I would look online to see if I could learn more about the specific benefits to your health that it can provide.

I think that I have heard that it is good for your heart. I am not completely sure if I am remembering correctly on that though, so I am just going to read about it. I am interesting to learn all of the health properties it might have, since I do drink a lot of beer. Of course, there have to be other preparations for hops to consume for its health benefits, other than drinking a bunch of beer. (more…)

I Love to Play Sports Games

I think some people are really surprised to see just how much I love gaming. I think the next thing they are surprised at is the kind of gaming I like to do. See, I am a 30 year old female, and I love just about any kind of sports game there is. I grew up with five big brothers so I really had no choice but to play their games or play by myself. I ended up really liking their games though, so it should be no surprise that I like MLB 15 The Show.

One of the first games they would allow me to play with them was baseball. They thought that I would get hurt if I played football, and I could never get the ball when we played basketball. Baseball was a different story though, and it soon became my favorite game. (more…)

Why I Changed Printing Companies

I used to have very plain and boring business cards. I felt that they did their purpose, plus I really could not afford anything classier. Well, that is what I thought anyway, but it turns out I could have if I had gone to a different company that does printing in Brisbane instead of the one I had chosen. By luck, the company I had used was closed for several days, which made me look elsewhere. I had been thinking of upgrading my business card to something splashier, and I was going to see what kind of price my former company could offer me.

I was not going to go with anything too grande. I just wanted a bit of color, and perhaps a nicer font. I figured those two things were something I could afford at that point. (more…)

Government Shutdown and GI Bill Benefits

There have been many rumors circulating around campus about what is and is not affected by the government shutdown with regards to VA education benefits and the Joan and Art Barron Veterans Center will do everything possible to try and answer those questions and provide the straightest scoop possible. Some common questions we have received over the last several days:

Will my tuition and housing allowance be affected by the shutdown?

The VA has passed that “claims processing and payments in the compensation, pension, education, and vocational rehabilitation programs are anticipated to continue through late October. However, in the event of a prolonged shutdown, claims processing and payments in these programs would be suspended when available funding is exhausted.”

I’m on the Work-Study Program. Will I still be able to work?

Work-Study participants who report to a site supervisor that has not been furloughed will be able to continue to work, submit hours, and be paid. Those whose site supervisors were furloughed, will not be able to work or submit hours. Hours that were submitted before the shutdown should be paid out.
Who can I call at the VA about my education benefits?

Unfortunately, nobody. The VA has suspended the Education Benefits national phone number (888-442-4551) indefinitely. Contact the Barron Veterans Center for possible assistance.

Will I still be able to receive other VA benefits such as medical care?

For a breakout of what services are and are not affected, review the Veterans Field Guide to Government Shutdown at http://www.va.gov/opa/docs/Field_Guide_20130927.pdf.

If you have additional questions, please contact the Barron Veterans Center at 619-594-5813 or visit our office in the Student Services West building in suite 1575.

SVO United Coalition Sponsors Veterans Mayoral Forum





The historic Veterans Museum and Memorial Center at Balboa Park will set the scene for a Veterans Mayoral Forum on Saturday, October 26, from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.. All San Diego veterans are invited to meet and engage with candidates seeking to be the next Mayor of San Diego. The event will also serve as a political educational experience for community student veterans.

Attendees must RSVP at https://veteransmayoralforum.eventbrite.com as space is limited.

The three leading mayoral candidates – David Alvarez, Kevin Faulconer, and Nathan Fletcher – have confirmed their participation and will give student veterans and the wider veterans community the opportunity to address them. The forum will be moderated by Dr. Patricia Reilly (CDR, USN, Ret.) coordinator of San Diego State University College of Engineering’s SERVICE program (Success in Engineering for Recent Veterans through Internship and Career Experience), and SDSU SVO Advisor.

The purpose of the newly formed SVO United Coalition is to serve as a support network for local Student Veteran Organization (SVO) chapters; providing outreach and resources for development of veteran leadership in the communities of local colleges and universities. This network of support includes student veterans, SVO chapter advisors, educational institution administrators, and other veteran and community organizations. This effort is the first of many to come as the SVO United Coalition develops, engaging student veterans and SVO chapters in the wider community.

Media outlets are encouraged to attend and broadcast live on October 26.
