CONSULTING FIRM EXPANDS TO CURRY

The consulting group Kinesis Inc. is expanding its services to offer assistance to organizations in Curry County.

Based in Ashland, Kinesis provides a spectrum of integrated services, specializing in strategic planning and facilitation, grant proposal development, public relations and graphic design.

I will be traveling regularly to Curry County to talk with interested clients, said Karen Carnival, chief executive officer. We are expanding our services because there isnt any single entity in the region providing the same breadth and scope of services that Kinesis provides.

We help non-profit organizations better serve the needs of their constituents and we help businesses to streamline their planning processes. The result is a more efficient system, which results in increased revenue for an organization.

Kinesis evolved out of Carnivals earlier business, Write Away, which focused on grant writing.

Since 1996, Carnival has obtained more than $1.8 million in awards for southern Oregon non-profits.

With the 1999 birth of Kinesis, service areas grew to include public relations, strategic planning, and graphic design with the inclusion of Joan Haukom, Wendy Maynard, and Shawn Busse on the Kinesis management team, and a core team of eight consultants who specialize in different areas, Carnival said.

Kinesis assembles the right group of professional contractors for each project to help organizations turn their ideas into dynamic results, Maynard said.

We strengthen our clients capabilities by providing tools that promote their organizations and build relationships with their target audiences, Maynard said.

Kinesis has worked with organizations in southern Oregon including Providence Community Health Foundation, Rogue Community College, the Rogue Institute for Ecology and Economy, Jefferson Public Radios Jefferson Monthly, Oregon Coalition on Housing and Homelessness, and the Parent Relief Nursery.

The Kinesis team may be reached at (541) 482-3600. For information, the companys web site address is http://www.kinesisinc.com.

  • Japan shares soar, yen skids after BOJ stuns with new easing steps
    Japanese stocks soared 4.8 percent to their highest close since November 2007 and the yen skidded to near seven-year lows against the dollar on Friday, after the Bank of Japan surprised markets with fresh easing steps it called a pre-emptive move to stoke inflation. The Nikkei stock average marked its biggest one-day gain since June 2013 after Japan's central bank said it would purchase more shares of exchange-traded funds and real estate investment trusts, extend the duration of its portfolio of Japanese government bonds, and increase the pace at which it expands base money to "pre-empt manifestation" of risks. The dollar was buying 111.06, up about 1.7 percent on the day after rising as high as 111.18 yen, its highest since January 2008. "It was a total surprise that the BOJ eased further at this time given that BOJ executives have not voiced such pessimistic views lately.
  • Citigroup sets aside $600 million more to cover legal costs
    Citigroup is one of six major banks that are expected to settle with Britain's Financial Conduct Authority by mid-November over allegations that the banks manipulated foreign exchange markets. Barclays Plc, another of the six banks, said on Thursday it had set aside 500 million pounds for the third quarter to cover potential fines. While the legal costs have hit profits, weighed on share prices, and consumed management time, they have not forced banks to raise money by issuing shares, and are not expected to. Citigroup, for example, is likely to make nearly $28 billion in pre-tax profits over the next five quarters, way more than enough to cover heightened legal expenses, according to analysts at Bernstein Research.
  • Wal-Mart to expand discounts as retail price war heats up
    Wal-Mart said it was bracing for competition to be as tough or tougher than in 2013, when heavy discounting depressed earnings across the industry. Wal-Mart's profits dropped in the holiday quarter last year and it has posted six straight quarters of flat or declining same-store sales. “It is starting to heat up right now, and I would expect it to be at least as competitive as last year," Steve Bratspies, executive vice president of general merchandise for Wal-Mart's U.S. Wal-Mart said it plans to have 20,000 "rollbacks", or a product discounted for at least 90 days, on offer starting on Saturday.
