This 3 Ways To Fix An Event Gone Wrong

The wardrobe fail on stage didn’t have to become a strip show. And fortunately, the guitar picker was wearing a jacket he didn’t need. But it could have gone south really fast!

Panic sets in when the most indiscriminate thing happens, and the next step can either make or break your event.

For that reason, we thought having a backup plan might be an effective option, something that might be readily available to help you in the event of a crisis.

Solution based thinking is always the first step. But then what? When you’re standing on stage in front of an audience and the ‘bad thing happens’ what then?

Sitting backstage after the show, I noticed band leader Dave Thornhill wasn’t wearing his jacket when he came off the stage, so I asked what happened to his jacket. He grinned and winked at me, then I realized… The young girl singer who had been on the side of the stage was wearing it. The buttons at the top of her blouse had popped off, leaving her nearly bare chested, he’d handed her the jacket right off his back as she turned to face the band instead of the audience, and the show had gone on – almost without skipping a beat.

Sitting in the fourth row of the audience, Buckaroo, Doyle Singer, popped a g-string, kept playing and replaced it with one from his pocket between songs. When it popped again, Don Rich handed him the g-string he’d had in his pocket, and they kept playing.

Professional bands come prepared for most any mishap.

Microphones are switched out, batteries replaced, strings restrung, and wardrobe malfunctions disappear under jackets worn, or strategically placed on the stage.

Your Event Will Have Mishaps

No matter how well planned, choreographed, and staged your event is, there will be mishaps. The band will be doing everything in their power to provide backups necessary for their part of the event, but you need to be ready with solutions and ideas for fixing any problems that may arise on the backside. Here are a few tips and suggestions.

1 – Find the solution. Don’t waste time blaming someone for a mishap, just look for an immediate solution. Take blame immediately off the table, by taking responsibility and cooling any flares with a calm and cool response. This is always the first step to solving a problem.

2 – Stay in the event. Don’t be distracted by outside affairs, keep your mind on the event. If you’re fully interacting, you’ll be better able to catch a problem before it goes too far off kelter and offer solutions. It’s always best to have a few pre-emptive solutions ready to go, but in the event that the problem may not fit within your bounds, be ready to act immediately.

3 – Offer a graceful response. Even if the worst thing happens, be graceful and kind in your response. Everyone deserves grace. Give them grace and be kind. “Things happen.” Might be your new motto. When the worst things happen, shrug them off and move on to the next step with gentle kindness and redirection.

Overview About The Mist Eliminators

Mist eliminators, also known as demisters, are devices that remove liquid droplets or vapor from the work atmosphere. This device has found some applications in many industries where such vapors are released as a by-product of the different chemical processes. Manufacturers produce standard or specialized devices to work as an important part of various industrial operations which include absorption towers, distillation towers, separation tanks, gas separators, evaporators, and so on. Various industries like metallurgy, petroleum, medicine manufacturing use demisters in their production processes or environmental protection measures.

Working Principle of a Mist Eliminator

Standard demisting devices work on the principles of inertia and dispersion. The liquid vapor rises with the gas and passes through the eliminator pads. These pads are fitted with wire meshes with openings that correspond to the predetermined average vapor droplet size, which is generally in the range of 3 to 5 micrometers. Due to the increasing inertia of these droplets, they get attached to the wire meshes. With subsequent passes, these collected droplets get heavier and heavier due to the tensile and adhesive properties of liquids, ultimately falling off the pads. In this manner, the vapor liquid is essentially separated from the gaseous emissions passing through standard eliminator pads.

Advantages

Eliminator manufacturers of today produce demisters of various sizes and capillary openings based on the above principle. A standard mist eliminator has various advantages as listed below.

· It is an essentially simple device; its size is only dependent on the gaseous emission pathway dimensions

· For such a basic device, it is highly efficient in removing liquid vapors with minimum disturbance to the actual process

· Eliminators improve the output by removing vaporized impurities; they also make gaseous emissions, safer by helping to separate potentially harmful compounds

· With no external power needed for its operation, it is a cost-saving device

· The liquid deposits may be collected and re-processed

Types

According to the requirements of specific industries, there are various types of these devices produced and operating in several industrial applications. However, we may segregate mist eliminator devices into three basic categories as discussed below.

Standard Mist Eliminator

These are the basic demisters that may be used in normal work environments. These devices can work efficiently in standard gaseous emissions, separating liquefied vapors. The mesh sizes of these devices are bigger, and they can sustain low to moderate amounts of gas pressure.

High Efficient Mist Eliminators

These demisters are capable of efficiently handling moderate to high levels of gaseous outputs. The mesh diameters of this type of eliminator are generally smaller for higher liquid retention.

Shock Absorption Mist Eliminator

These are the optimum mist elimination devices meant for use in high-speed machines, where there is a high amount of gaseous emission in an enclosed space. These smallest mesh diameter pads can absorb liquid vapors with the highest degree of efficiency and minimum impedance.

Thus, eliminators are a simple but essential part of those industrial processes requiring efficient and cost-effective liquid vapor separation.

The Quality and good marketing

The idea of opening a jewelry store never stops to attract the enthusiasm of everyone that dreams to work in the world of precious metals. It’s well known that working in this field it’s not an easy choice, especially because the jeweler has to face a very competitive market that requires competence and a continuous updating activity.

Besides being technically informed on what he’s going to sell, who wants to open a jewelry store must have all the necessary licenses and permissions before starting his business; then, after having wisely chosen where to place the store, another important thing to do is to protect this neoborn business from thieves stipulating an insurance against fire and burglar, and being provided with an alarm system directly connected with the police. As for many other businesses, it’s possible to choose if opening in franchising or totally on your own. The first solution is cheaper, but the profits will be obviously lower.

When you complete these first steps you can think about which products to buy for your store, selecting both costume jewelry and high quality gold and silver jewels. The costume jewelry, preferably branded, is very useful because it can attract a lot of different customers, even the ones that are not rich enough to buy gold or silver jewellery.

At this point it’s possible to think about how to promote your business: you have to tell people why your products are better than others, in order to catch their attention. This is a very crucial moment because it’s now that you can seize the opportunity to make people know the qualities of your jewels. For instance, having an e-commerce could be a very intelligent idea in this sense, because it gives you the possibility to reach potential customers all over the world, expanding your business over its natural boundaries. The Italian e-commerce named Jewellery Italian Style, the jewellery shop online created by Fabio Bolzon, is a laudable example of this. This e-commerce has proved a great capacity of self-promotion and a particular attention to the customer, as it gives a lot of information in order to make conscious the purchase, first of all thanks to the fact that for every product there’s a technical section that fully describes its specific details.

Make Tax Liens In Disappear

When tax liens, bankruptcies and judgments appear on credit reports, they can prevent sureties from issuing bonds and banks from granting loans. This can be devastating for construction companies that need both to succeed.

Are there ways to get the tax lien off the credit report? Yes! Let’s find out how.

According to the government: “A federal tax lien is the government’s legal claim against your property when you neglect or fail to pay a tax debt. The lien protects the government’s interest in all your property, including real estate, personal property and financial assets.”

For surety bond underwriters, the tax lien is a red flag for a number of reasons:

  • It can mean the bond applicant had insufficient cash flow to meet their financial obligations.
  • It may be a sign of poor management or weak internal controls.
  • The scariest part may be the “weapons” used by the IRS to collect their tax money. They can issue a tax levy. This permits the legal seizure of property to satisfy the tax debt. They can garnish wages and take money from a bank or other financial account. They also have the ability to seize and sell vehicles, real estate and personal property. These collection activities can threaten the success of bonded projects to the detriment of the contractor and surety. Bad for everyone except the IRS agent.

Here is how to remove tax liens from the credit report:

  1. Wait. Eventually the credit bureau may drop it from the report even if it is not paid, but this can take years.
  2. Pay the tax bill. Eliminating the debt will not remove the lien from the credit report, but will show it as “released.” For credit grantors, this is still negative, but less threatening. Paid liens remain on the report for seven years. So the next step is also needed…
  3. Federal form 12277. With this document you can ask the IRS to withdraw (remove) the lien notice, even when the debt is not paid off!

More about form 12277

This is part of the federal “Fresh Start” program, which provides certain benefits to taxpayers. 12277 is the Application for Withdrawal form. The IRS will consider withdrawing the lien notice if the debt is being paid through a Direct Deposit installment agreement, plus a few other conditions.

The purpose of the Application for Withdrawal is not to eliminate the lien, but to remove it from public view when there is no longer the threat of a tax levy. Consider using this procedure on liens that are not paid off, and those that are!

In both cases it is legal and beneficial to have the lien disappear. But is this practice unfair or deceptive? No, because banks and bonding companies have other ways of detecting the lien. They are not being deprived of relevant information. For example, the debt will appear in the financial statements and also on the Contractor Questionnaire.

One more comment about the dreaded, draconian tax levy: Before the IRS proceeds with the levy they are required to send the taxpayer a Final Notice of Intent to Levy and Notice of Your Right to A Hearing. This gives the taxpayer one last chance to argue against the levy before it is implemented. Go for it. Maybe it will help. Remember – they’re from the government and they’re here to help!

Now you know the ways to remove a federal tax lien from view. By waiting, paying and / or using form 12277, the lien can be wiped from the credit report. For the taxpayer, it can be an important step toward financial recovery.
