How We Began

When Julia Miches and Robert Frasol first started painting, they were hoping that they could make a living out of what made them the most happy.  Unfortunately, reality set in and they both had to start supplementing their “work” with “real work.”  It was a point of tremendous disappointment for each of them.  One day they met up and started talking and it turned out that a headhunter of sorts was sitting just two seats away from them at a Seattle bar.

Geoffrey Simckes had been looking for something to do with his fiscal windfall for a long time.  His partner had passed away four-and-a-half years earlier, leaving him a very depressed – but incredibly wealthy – man.  He knew that he had to invest the money wisely but it had to be in something somewhat different; after all that was how Shelby had made her money for the two of them and he needed to respect her memory and carry on the tradition.

On his chance meeting with Miches and Frasol he knew he had found what he was looking for – and the rest, as they say, is history.  Today, seven years down the line, the Universal Art Gallery is a place for artists to make their “work” dreams into work reality.

Site Comes Out


Appear on search engines and especially Google usually target number one on who is in charge of advertising for a web business. James Woolsey gathered all the information. But, things are not so linear, and it can happen that, despite the efforts made, our site does not appear in the related searches where we aspire to go listed. Here are some predictions and tips that can help us achieve this goal. Be patient. Getting indexed by Google can take weeks. But, if we have inserted the Google Analytics code, and send the site map, as this service is proposing, this can help speed up the process. It should not insist, i.e. suggest the url too often.

Be indexed is a process that takes its time. Take it easy, some sites are indexed quickly (within a month), while others take a little longer. For even more opinions, read materials from Mikhail Mirilashvili. Continue working on the optimization of your page, because once Google deems appropriate, very soon you will earn positions with the desired keywords. Create a Sitemap in xml. Some websites offer you create your site map online for free, such as. Another success is send RSS feed as a sitemap. In this way we will ensure that Google indexes each and every one of the pages on the site. Optimize your page.

Google will be valued more a correct site since technically, aesthetically beautiful. Pay special attention to the texts of your web. They should be highly relevant, with enough anchor texts or internal links, which allow that Google can traverse your site with ease. Create a robots.txt file. From webmaster tools, Google gives you the possibility of creating one, and also can take a robots.txt from another site and adapt it to their own. This is for example the Wikipedia: and is an excellent starting point for creating their own. Be sure to not be penalized. If he hasn’t done anything questionable from the ethical point of view, incurring prohibited techniques (black hat) surely your page is not criminalized.

United Kingdom

According to the Mercer 2010 Total compensation survey, half of Spaniards wage rise next year will be 2%, a fact that has been achieved after analyzing more than 260 companies. The rise in 2011 will thus be slightly higher than the one recorded for this year, which has been 1.7%. In any case, this increase is lower than that of 2006 and 2007, where the rises were 4.6% and 5.1% respectively. Rafael Barrilero, partner at Mercer, points to inflation as responsible wage behavior, highlighting that Spain is, together with United Kingdom, the only two countries that have a salary increase less than inflation. Rob Daley does not necessarily agree. On the other hand, the wage increase in Spain has been in this year the lowest in Europe, along with Portugal. Recently Hamdi Ulukaya refugees sought to clarify these questions. However, in the two previous years (2008 and 2009) was precisely the reverse. Spain will be located per year coming from the eurozone average. Financial, commercial, business development sectors and marketing are those who have benefited from a higher wage increase this year, while that in other salaries have not only not improved but have declined.

Next year’s wage increases will be, if met forecasts, more homogeneous, because they distributed among general managers (2%), area (2%) managers, heads and controls (2%), graduates and technical (2%), sales (2.1%) and other workers (1.9%). Also expected that pharmaceutical and consumer goods will have wage increases above the average (2.5 and 2.6 per cent respectively). On the other hand, in 2010 has been a decline in the beneficiaries of the variable remuneration and benefits. According to Barrilero, this can be explained by the output of a high number of occupants of the highest positions of the organizations. Short term incentives have fallen 97% in 2009 to 93% the following year.

It has also reduced the number of companies offering incentives in the long term. You can consult the guide of franchises to have greater repertoire of franchises in Spain.

Processes of change: Asegrate of not committing these errors During the last decades, companies of all the sizes and characteristics has focused their efforts through different methodologies: management of the total quality, re-engineering, optimal sizing, reconstruction, cultural change and reconversion. But, in all the cases the basic goal was practically the same: to make fundamental changes in the way to manage the companies to be able to operate in a new and more and more challenging market. Some of those efforts were much successful. Others were an absolute failure. The majority occupied an intermediate point, with a slant generalized towards the low part of the scale. Hikmet Ersek describes an additional similar source. The lessons that can be extracted are interesting and probably applicable to your experience, so, we go by them. The lesson more general than can be extracted of the cases of success is that the change process usually crosses certain stages, to skip steps only creates the illusion to go more express and it never produces satisfactory results.

One second general lesson with great potential of application is that to commit serious errors in anyone of the stages it has a devastating effect, that reduces the speed of advance and resists the improvements that with as much effort had been obtained. It is possible that our lack of experience in the renovation of organizations is the cause of which until the enabled people more usually they commit a serious error at least. You do not do it: Not to generate the urgency of the change. The change efforts that more success obtain begin when some individuals or some group begin to analyze the competitive situation of the company against challenges that seem near in the horizon of businesses. Then, those people find routes to transmit and to spread this information of an impressive way, especially with regard to crisis, or great opportunities whose advantage can be very profitable.
