Palatable and Delicious Cuisine Nourishes the Soul “Louisiana Pork Chops”

Pete Earthlé, IdeasNConversations @IdeasN

Four months ago, a friend of ours mailed us a book of Recipes across regional United States as he witnessed during his visit that we enjoy cooking.

We picked the Louisiana Pork Chops as it seems great based on the ingredients besides we have not cooked one of this. Indeed, the cuisine did not disappoint us,  had a wonderful evening and meal with this sumptuous food.  It got added to our favorites since then.

Thought I will share with you as we just had it again today.



Barely 10 Hours Left for Ladies to Propose Today! “Will That Be True?”

It is a Leap Year and today is the day for it… are you celebrating? Not here because nobody was born of February 29th.

Fun, fun for those who celebrates.


By: Jalenn Turre, Marketing, Business & Social Media Strategist

Besides the special celebratory birthdays today, there are interesting and colorful angles of this day according to legendary traditions that originates back in the 5th Century.

However, the fact is that there are only few individuals who have the opportunity of celebrating their Leap Birthday during every 4th year. We like to partake in celebrating their unique moments. #HappyLeapBirthday

@2016 2016LeapYear

According to one source; there are one in 1,461 who has a leap birthday. There are approximately 4.1 million people who were born around the world during the Leap Year. Were you one of them? Or do you know someone who was born on the 29th of February?

An inquisitive perspective lingers on whether or not being born on this day is an opportunity or adversity. My guess is dependent on the individual’s pursuits like everyone else who were born during the regular calendar days.

Global Needs Demand International Competency – What Level Is Yours?

By: Juntee Terrenal, GMS, Strategic International Business Leader, Adviser & Coach

International businesses competency has not been the focus of learning in the last decade. With the fast emergence of globalization, there is a shortage of professionals who can demonstrate the real international competency. Many institutions raced to develop their ‘theoretically-based syllabi and frameworks’ however their graduates do not demonstrate what the international businesses are looking for.

Here are some insights that will help you acquire the needed international competency.

_2015 LeadershipCoach

@2016 2016CompetencyGlobal

Articulating ideas is a leadership competence and this can be developed with the help of your Coach

Fluency in speaking, articulates an engaging conversations and participation of an audience in both personal or business setting. You share great ideas, information, showing rapport and connection to your listener, conversing with colleagues, active listening  with customers, co-workers, subordinates, superiors, family and friends.

Generating an engaging conversation begins with small talk like day-to-day routine and then evolve into discussions about bigger issues, topics or phenomena, like storms, hurricane, earthquake, unusual performances of great singers, sometimes politics, activities, hobbies or responsibilities at work; offering insights and professional perspectives; only to find yourselves deeply engaged into a complex subject matters. That is the actualized results of conversational competency and scope of knowledge with leadership abilities.

Evidence of Low Competency:
Inability to communicate your thoughts and ideas effectively in order to gain confidence of your team members; inability to comprehend what matters best outside your environment and relevant in other countries; these are factual evidence. When you have attended or participated experiential immersions in numerous environments; and you still have the handicap in leading people and getting across conversationally; two things have contributed to that fact.

  • One, you were in a wrong environment
  • Second, you did not put dedication in acquiring the competency.

Are there ways in correcting these deficiencies? There are opportunities for that, based on your own personal or professional needs.

Getting a Coach who will advocate your learning instead of your money:

When you work with a Coach who possesses unlimited experience and demonstrable acumen in business, leadership, international cultures, people and resources management, conversational language, linguistics prowess; you will gain exceptional proficiency at the shortest amount of time. Your progress will be significant because your Coach troubleshoots your handicap.

Experiencing issues that are hard to solve due to inadequate competency? We like to hear from you; ReloNavigator’s International Leadership and Competency Development will help you acquire the needed competency.

Community Immersion / Pre-decision Tour Impacts Results of Effective Relocation and Costs

My experiences taught me that this type of activity is very essential to validate how I felt at my next home town. Absolutely a great service for those who like to become familiar with the quality of life that they will have in the future.

Your employer will pay for this service especially when they like you to become successful at your new home assignment. There is nothing more important to high performing employer than your success in job responsibilities, cultural adjustment and ROI of their investment to your expatriate status.

Pre-decision tour and community immersion works well when you are one of those successful expats or families that will enjoy the experience and amenities of the new home environment.

3. Be aware of your body language / nonverbal communication [Quick hints for non-traditional Hot Yoga teachers]

Non-verbals are quite significant forms of communication – http://ideasnconversations.blogspot.com/2012/08/non-verbal-versus-verbal-language.html

Problem Solver to the many Puzzles pertaining to your immigration, relocation, home search and destination support

It is always a great feeling when you have someone you can trust.  That someone can facilitate  the solutions of all confusing issues that will relate to relocation, immigration and particularly when you are starting a new life in a new country. Oftentimes, you feel as if you are in solitude when no one can point you to specific cultural needs that will make you feel comfortable.

This support from ReloNavigator is an essential piece including other services they provide. I will call ReloNavigator when I will relocate again to another city or country.

A Reflective Lenten Season and Renewal of Faith

In the Catholic Faith, this season is one of the important time to re-celebrate the life of Jesus.  The Faithful undertake various practices that reflect their values as an individual Catholic and believer of Christ, the Redeemer of their sins.

Lent-PrayersAcknowledgement: Catholic-link.com

“Lent becomes a privileged time: (i) a time of repentance where we humbly recognize our weaknesses and sinfulness before God and one another, and (ii) a time of belief where we joyfully affirm our faith in God, the One source of our strength and our forgiveness. In this Lenten journey, the invitation to return to the Lord is specifically addressed to the whole heart (Joel 2:12), meaning, the person in his totality – mind, heart and body.”

Good Friday – Commemorating the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ:

Receiving the Holy Light – Saturday Vigil 
credit: Maggas @en.wikipedia
“Because the new liturgical day begins at sunset, the vigil begins between sunset on Holy Saturday and sunrise on Easter Sunday outside the church, where an Easter fire is kindled and the Paschal candle is blessed and then lit. This Paschal candle will be used throughout the season of Easter, remaining in the sanctuary of the church or near the lectern, and throughout the coming year at baptisms and funerals, reminding all that Christ is “light and life.“”
A Blessed Easter:

Christians across the globe celebrate Easter Sunday, where the replica of the cross that Jesus was crucified on and his resurrection are important symbols of Christian Faith. Many Americans and cultures across the world illustrate their celebratory events with decorated real eggs, chocolate eggs, materials that are made of rabbits, lambs, and or hares. Stores carry various forms of chocolates and candies in the shape of an egg.. Abundance of Easter Lilies are also available in many supermarkets and flower shops. And many designs of Easter cakes across bake shops. Easter is one of the most vibrant celebrations during the Spring Season in the United States.
