Ouli Adds I Want to VolunteerOuli Users Can Now Discover Local Volunteer Opportunities Within the App
Arlington, VA – December 5, 2016 – Arlington-based software company, Dante Inc., announced the addition of the “I Want to Volunteer” intent to the Ouli App. Ouli is a uniquely intelligent personal concierge app that presents consumers with offers and suggestions for local merchants and events that are personalized based on their chosen activities, time, location, history and preferences. The app is available for free download on iOS and Android devices.
By adding the volunteer intent, users can now find local volunteer opportunities at area nonprofits. Ouli has partnered with more than 20 organizations to highlight upcoming volunteer needs within communities across Arlington, DC and Maryland.
The app makes it easier than ever for people to see the needs in their community. Users can focus on a specific neighborhood and set the day and time to see what opportunities are available.
“As a company we have been heavily involved with many local nonprofits for years. It only made sense to add the volunteer intent to the app as we work to connect residents to the communities around them,” said Pierre Malko, Dante’s CEO. “There are many great organizations in the area that are seeking volunteers. By making it easy to quickly find an opportunity and add it to a users’ calendar, we hope to see an increase in volunteers at local nonprofits.”
The app is available in many parts of Northern Virginia including Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church City, and Mosaic District. Users can also find many Washington D.C. neighborhoods in the app and Silver Spring, MD. Since its launch in 2015 Ouli has been partnering with hundreds of businesses including restaurants, salons, spas, boutiques and theaters to connect users to merchants and build connections that might not otherwise be created. To see a full list of neighborhoods and organizations, users can download the app or visit www.ouliapp.com.

Blue Alchemy Consulting fills huge training void with world-class programs for senior government contracting professionals

ARLINGTON, Virginia — Virginia attorney Janetta Brewer has announced the official launch of her new consultancy, Blue Alchemy Consulting, LLC. The business delivers legal, consulting, and training expertise to senior procurement leaders and procurement analysts in the Federal government and industry. The new brand leverages Ms. Brewer’s previous success as a senior contracting professional within the Department of Defense.

Blue Alchemy is the only consultancy to offer comprehensive training for contracting professionals responsible for procurement policy and oversight, plugging a gap in the procurement training market.

“Early in my career, I transitioned into a procurement policy role after serving as a contracting officer for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,” Ms. Brewer said. “I was struck by the lack of training available. Many procurement analysts are forced to rely on their operational contracting experience which is important, but it does not provide them with the skills they need to perform their new responsibilities.”

Those responsibilities include developing an agency’s oversight processes, writing procurement policies, implementing effective control measures, and ensuring the workforce is adequately trained. The role is strategic, and it requires the analyst to look at an agency’s procurement activities through a national or global lens. For professionals who previously spent their days awarding, administering, and closing out contracts, the broader focus can come as a shock.

“All of the corporate and Government training in existence is geared towards the contracting officer, but the skill set required to be a successful procurement analyst are drastically different, because the job responsibilities are different,” Ms. Brewer said. “Our training programs — the first of their kind — assist senior procurement analysts in reducing risk and strengthening procurement operations across the agency acquisition system. I’m confident that we can help senior procurement professionals raise their game and deliver powerful results for their agencies.”

About Blue Alchemy Consulting, LLC
Blue Alchemy Consulting is a woman-owned small business providing legal, consulting, and training services tailored specifically for acquisition policy and compliance professionals. Headquartered in Arlington, VA, Blue Alchemy aims to reduce risk and increase operational efficiency for government and industry clients.

Ballston Therapeutic Massage TeamBenefits of Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a natural therapy in which warmed stones are positioned on parts of the client’s body of to maximize the therapeutic benefit. The stones used are typically river rocks or other very smooth-surfaced stones made of basalt. These stones are heated in sanitizing water before use. The high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage. Hot stone massages are beneficial on both physical and psychological levels. Always check with your doctor before getting a hot stone massage; individuals with certain conditions–including pregnant women and people with high blood pressure–are advised to avoid this type of therapy.

Muscle Relaxation

The heat from the stones helps your muscles relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively. Overly tense muscles can hinder the massage procedure, so if your muscles are extremely tight or stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.

Pain Relief

While all types of massage can help relieve pain caused by tense muscles, stiff joints or injuries, a hot stone massage may provide greater relief due to the intense nature of the massage. Because the hot stones allow the massage therapist to penetrate deeper, you may find that a hot stone massage leaves you feeling physically better than a Swedish or deep-tissue massage that does not incorporate heat. It is important to let your massage therapist know if you feel that the heat from the stones is too much or that the pressure he is using is too harsh. Pain or discomfort during the massage process can cause more harm than good after the massage is over.
