The End of the War of Alastair Borthwick

by Chris Holden - August 8th, 2019

In 1929 and at the age of 16, Alastair Borthwick dropped out of High School and got a position with the Glasgow newspaper the Glasgow Weekly Herald. During his time writing for this paper, he had the opportunity to write about many subjects. One of these concerning chronicling the city’s growing hiking and mountain climbing movement among its working class. In the process, enjoying nature in all of its forms became a lifelong passion for him. Many of his newspaper articles on the subject would later be used as the basis of his most famous novel.

He left the paper and Glasgow in 1935 to take a writing position with the newspaper the Daily Mirror in London. It didn’t go very well and a year later he moved back to Glasgow where he got a job with BBC. In 1939 he published his classic mountaineering novel, “Always a Little Further.” In 1940 he joined Scotland as a soldier in World War II. He would spend the entirety of the war fighting in some of its fiercest battles. Just a few months after the end of the war, he published his classic war memoir “Sans Peur.” It was also in the same year that he and his wife Anne, who he had married in 1940 right before the war, moved to a small remote Scottish island named Jura.

They lived here for the next seven years. During this time he continued working for BBC and his son Patrick was born. In 1952 they finally started the process of moving back to the mainland. They first moved to the neighboring and more populous island of Islay where they lived until 1960. At that time they moved back to the mainland, settling in Ayrshire where they would spend the next 30 years. It was also during the ’60 that he became associated with the television industry, primarily as a scriptwriter.

A responsible member of the community, Kisling, Nestico & Redick supports many causes. One of these is reducing hunger. A group of lawyers, paralegals, and support staff showed this commitment when they joined the Polar Bear Jump that is annually at Portage Lake. This event is held in the winter so Portage Lake is exceedingly cold. They raised $30,000 which was donated to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank.

They work to make the roads of Ohio safer. A recent initiative awarded a $5000 college scholarship to a high school student who came up with the best idea to convince other drivers not to text and drive. This is a major cause of car accidents in Ohio in which people die.

The winner of the award also needed to demonstrate good character, have a cumulative GPA of over 3.0, and either be a US citizen or have permanent residency. Kisling, Nestico & Redick awarded the scholarship to Elianna Norin who plans to use the scholarship at a local art college. She came up with an advertising campaign that compares driving while texting to driving while blindfolded.

How Max Salk Finds Peace In A Busy Life

by Chris Holden - August 7th, 2019

Max Salk is not only a financial analyst but a landscape photographer. Living in a busy area such as New York City, it may seem impossible to be able to find the perfect balance between business and personal life. However, this is not the case with Salk. He recently did an interview with Positive The Facts to describe how he keeps his sanity while living in one of the most intense cities in the world. 

The first way is to keep his life simple. Max Salk is not a person to chase after the latest and greatest technology if he can’t find a way that it will increase productivity in his life. In fact, he still rocks an ipod to this day.

Another way that Salk keeps his life as simple as possible is by preparation. He gives the example of waking up on a foggy morning in Netherlands. Instead of just walking out of the door to fight the fog, he decided to grab his camera and take some pictures of the harbor. Now, those pictures are featured on his photography website and they even helped launch his hobby into a second career. 

While it is good to be prepared, it is also imperative to be able to adjust when necessary. Salk says that it is necessary to be able to change and not try and plan every second of your day. Even if you do have a plan, it should always be able to be changed. As a photographer, Salk must be able to wait whenever the lighting is right outside to get the perfect picture. This could mean adjusting your day by a few hours to get it right.

Making every moment count is also important to Max Salk. Although he spends many hours analyzing data for his company, most of his colleagues only see what he suggests. Instead of letting that get to him, he decided to make his moment count by putting just as much effort in his presentations. The moral of the story is to make sure that people understand what you feel is passionate to you.

There are so many tips that Max Salk can give to show people how to find balance in life. While he does work hard, he works even harder to have the best personal life possible. With his tips and tricks, everyone can be able to do so too.
