    It was another great Fashion Night, for the 4th year in a row! Special kudos go to Erin Wessling and Bree Thomas, who spearhead the event each year. If it weren't for Erin and Bree's vision and leadership, Savannah's Fashion Night wouldn't exist.

    Every hospital and medical Center in Savannah need to visit MUMC and have to bring changes according to the award wining directors made.

    Well done Michael Owens, Joe Marinelli and a host of others who've helped do this. Keep in mind though, "If you ain't the lead dog, the view never changes!" And we can be #1.

    Sounds like you got screwed just like the stockholders. Nobody to blame but yourself (and the former CEO).

    After agreeing to work on a retainer's fee as the President and Head of Production and upon , my wife and I relocated from Los Angeles to join Medient in Savannah. The company paid our moving expense. After joining as President and Head of Production, I was not paid full retainer's fee because the company was growing. I made the sacrifice totally believing, like many others in the company, in vision and mission of the company. After few months, I was not paid at all. I was promised all the pending amount will be cleared soon. Me and wife had to lead a frugal life with very basic necessities. We even shared one car. Still do. Survival was hard, but that did not affect my sincerity at work. Suddenly the board fires the CEO. After 5 days the new CEO told me the company was laying me off. No reason given. I was stunned. After so many sacrifices, so much hard-work and sincerity, I was being laid off? Now, I am out of work with months and months of unpaid salary, with an 18 months lease on rental house which I don't know what to do with it, with no money to move back to LA, with my wife's monthly lease to be paid on the car, with loans on my head taken because the salary was not paid. Not to mention after LA my wife (with her master's degree in Art and Theatre) has yet to find a decently paying job in a city as small as Savanna. Medient is worried about its website being hacked. I am worried about me and my wife's life being hacked.

    After agreeing on the job as the President & Head of Production (because of my vast experience as a film-director and my extensive background) I agreed to join Medient Studios Inc. on a retainer's fee. The company paid the moving expense for me and my wife to relocate from Los Angeles to Savannah. After joining, I was not paid full retainer's fee because the company was new and growing. I made the sacrifice totally believing, like so many others in the company, in vision and mission of the company. After few months, I was not paid at all but I was promised all the pending salary would be cleared soon. Me and wife made changes in our life. We lived frugally with very basic necessities. We even shared one car. We still do. Managing without a salary was very hard, but that did not affect my sincerity at work. Suddenly our very respectable and well-known board of directors fired the CEO and makes another person the CEO. After 5 days the new CEO told me the company was laying me off. I was stunned. After so many sacrifices, so much hard-work and sincerity, I was being laid off? If Medient wants to focus on making movies why would the CEO want to lay off one of the most experienced and hard-working members on the team? Was it because the old CEO had brought me on board? Was it because like the ex-CEO I am an Indian? That's racial discrimination. I was not given any reason apart from that I was made for bigger and better things.

    Now, I am out of work with months and months of unpaid salary, with an 18 months lease on rental house which I don't know what to do with it if I have to relocate to some other city, with no money to relocate, with my wife's monthly lease to be paid on the car, with loans on my head taken because the salary was not paid, with some actually expenditure done by me on behalf of the company also yet to be paid. And no one at Medient is taking the responsibility.

And no one at Medient taking responsibility. Its good to focus on movies. But it's equally important to focus on the lives of people who were working at Medient. What will the very respectable board of directors at Medient, who have such a wonderful reputation do for the employee's unpaid salary????

    Vaporizers are nowadays preferred more over cigarettes due to health benefits. Unlike Cigarettes vaporizers are smoke free and odor free. CHEATING THE HANGMAN supplies vaporizers as well as vaporizer components in Australia online at http://goo.gl/nJkQy9.

  • Is Washington State Providing Inaccurate Info's picture

    Is Project Status being misrepresented to Chinese to attract EB-5 funds preferentially to WA State???

    Washington's Lt Governor returns from China 5/19/14
    Why is Washington Lt Governor stating that Potala Tower is "Nearing Completion in Downtown Seattle?

    According to the website for PathAmerica, construcn will not even begin until "late summer of 2014" http://www.pathamerica.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=...

    So, again, I ask if Washington State's Lieutenant Governor is providing misleading information overseas, in China, to get EB-5 investment dollars ($500,000-$1 Million a pop) into Washington State? Preferentially over other states?

    Here’s his blogspot and his official site
    http://www.overseaswithbrad.blogspot.com/
    http://www.ltgov.wa.gov/2014/05/16/lt-governor-visits-shanghai/

    Is this really the type of country we have in the USA? Is this really how we get investment dollars into Washington state? The EB-5 program is probably a great investment vehicle, but shouldn't the information about the projects be accurate?

    I moved here to retire in 2010. From The Hamptons, NY. Since then I have seen the local people being pushed out of the Historic District. I had to move from Broughton and Barnard the property taxes so high ! I consider myself to be a local now. Buying to be able to walk and take the bus to what I needed. I see that Sav. has changed in the few years I have been here. Catering to the tourists, not the locals. Big chain stores took over main st. in EH. So local business was pushed out, not being able to afford the rents. How about helping the local merchants, stay in their shops. Now no buses stop on Broughton St. ! Older local people that have no cars, have to walk from Liberty St. to shop downtown. How about a hardware store and useful shops? I see all the vacation rentals, during the week, unless there is an event. They are dark. Also the cutting down of the beautiful old landscape or removal in the public areas, so sad. Is Savannah turning into Disney Land ?

    This article wasn't well researched. If it had been you would have found that Noble Mouse has an agency dog, Austin, that runs our Facebook page. He does a lot more than just sit around and look pretty. He contributes to brainstorm sessions and is a definite deal closer when clients visit our office. He also naps a lot but that's part of his job description so we let it slide.

    Austin will expect a full page spread in a future edition.

    It's like no one in Congress understands how tax thresholds work. It's not that if you pass a certain limit, all of your income is taxed. On any threshold, only money above the limit is taxed.
    So for instance if a person inherited $5 million, the person with $5m pays 45% on the $1.5m above the proposed $3.5m limit, so he/she would have $4.3m left. The tax would leave the person with 0.55 x 5 = $2.75m. Huge difference.

    Great article Julia! As the community grows, I totally agree that a Hospital is something that should be looked at.

    Would love a Costco too. And as an Apple fan, would love to see an Apple store open up. :-)

    Thanks for the tip on the 'It's Cooler In Pooler" facebook page.

    For reduced rates and no fees, the PenFed Promise Visa is ideal. This credit card beats just about anything out there. All you have to have is a tie to the United States armed forces. Take a peek at https://personalmoneynetwork.com
