The hybrid buses are more affordable, as compared to pure electric buses, and they can easily operate with conventional public transit infrastructure, without any additional requirements such as charging stations. The demand of public transit services is highest in Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa (BRICS). However, the premium pricing of electric buses is limiting their acceptance in these price sensitive countries. The low level of environment awareness, along with lack of infrastructure like charging station is limiting the penetration of electric buses in the developing market.

Milk is one of the essential food products consumed in every family. However, owing to the perishable nature, regular liquid milk is not purchased by the end-users in large volumes. Therefore, UHT milk is consumed worldwide, as an alternative to regular milk. The evolving consumer trends, such as on-the go consumption of milk is also boosting the growth of the global market of UHT milk. Earlier, milk was usually consumed during the breakfast or dinner. However, during the past few years, a shift in dietary trends has led to its pervasive consumption. Now-a-days, milk is consumed by individuals while in school, playground, gymnasium, and office. The government in many countries has been providing milk to children for promoting their growth. The sports and business people carry milk, in order to consume it on-the-go. This trend has affected the growth of the global UHT milk market in positive terms, as they can be carried safely to places without the need for refrigeration.

With the increasing urbanization, the adoption of several trends related to lifestyle and well-being are in practice within the developing countries of Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Africa. The growing apartment culture in countries, such as China and India is influencing the consumers to use products with larger shelf life. UHT milk accounts for approximately 60% share of the total milk consumption in China.

The weaker economic conditions in Europe have propelled the demand for cheaper products in the past few years. Milk being one of the inherent parts of everyday meal for the majority of European population, its affordability is important for most of the households. The private label UHT milk brands offered by supermarkets and hypermarkets are relatively cheaper than, those offered by established brands. This offsets the negative impact of economic slowdown, as the consumers have an option to switch towards the substitutes of their preferred brand in the economically crunch situation.

The major companies operating in the global UHT milk market include Nestle SA, Groupe Lactalis S.A., Fonterra Co-Operative Group Limited, Danone Limited, Grupo Lala, S.A.B. de CV, Sodiaal Group, Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group Co. Ltd., China Mengniu Dairy Company Limited, Devondale Murray Goulburn Co-Operative Co. Limited.

Find inspiration and love through 11 chapters that artistically guide you through life's biggest obstacles such as money, relationships, love, work and God.

I've had readers describe The Art of Being God as a spiritual guide. Each chapter is intentionally titled and designed to tackle a big issue which affects all our lives. These themes are wrapped up beautifully with an artistic point of view and new age way of thinking.

Discover Who You Are:
Have you ever looked in the mirror and wondering how you became who you are today? We often get so wrapped up in the norms of life we forget why we're here and how to live. Self identity doesn't come from who love you, but who and what you love. How many of your friends really know who you are?

Money:
Money isn't everything...or is it? It can definitely be used to help build a comfortable life, but does happiness derive from money or is there something more to it? Where does money fit in our life and how can we be feel complete when everything is designed around it?

Relationships and Where You Fit In:
Why do some people seem to be naturally more attractive to others? This isn't just about physical beauty; learn why some individuals seem to fit in perfectly even while being "weird". Absorb the importance of embracing yourself and how doing so can make everything in your life better, especially your relationships.

Art:
Learn how art just may be the most important thing in your life. Art can be so much, it can be a reflection of self or something we create. If God is a creator then we are his art. It is everything, and it could be your saving grace.

Gradwell Communications Launches New Managed Fibreline Offering

Gradwell Communications is pleased to announce an extra level of service reassurance to their Ethernet leased line customers through the addition of a fully automated failover solution.

In the event of a problem with the main fibre optic circuit, the customer’s connection will automatically and seamlessly failover to a backup line. All circuits are monitored 24/7 by the Gradwell network team, and during extensive testing, customers using their internet connection when the line failed over found it hard to notice any gap in service.

Customers who make the switch to dedicated leased lines usually move all their business critical functionality onto the service, such as voice and connections to cloud CRM services. This means that any downtime, no matter how small, can have a real impact not just on operations and customer service, but also financially on the company’s bottom line.

Whilst customers can always manually switch to a backup circuit in the event of a service issue, Gradwell’s solution removes the need to have someone in the office that is able to do this, and also preserves the same IP address allocation that the customer usually uses, preserving any customer services that rely on static IP addressing.

Commenting, Founder & CTO Peter Gradwell said “As business moves to the cloud none of us can afford to miss a beat and so rock solid, affordable internet connections form the foundations that we all rely on. We are delighted to bring this enhancement to market for new customers, or as a simple upgrade for our existing fibre customers in order to provide 100% reliability and a service-level agreement to match."

Mobile Grooming Service in Cobb Island, MD, Stands Apart from Other SMBs with Web Marketing

Just over half of the small and medium businesses (SMBs) nationwide maintain a business Web site.

Moving Grooming Mobile Pet Services LLC, which offers dog grooming and cat grooming to local pet owners, is teaming up with the online marketing specialists at Prospect Genius to enhance its Web presence. The move is designed to help the business become more competitive in its industry and its local region.

A December 2014 SCORE study found that only 51% of SMBs have an active Web presence. By joining the trend toward Internet advertising, Moving Grooming Mobile Pet Services LLC has the chance to set itself apart among grooming services in the greater Cobb Island region. Going forward, when local pet owners query a search engine such as Google, Yahoo!, or Bing looking for pet grooming services, they’ll be more likely to encounter Moving Grooming Mobile Pet Services LLC online.

Windows Installer in Gaithersburg, MD, Boosts Local Economy by Using Web Marketing Techniques

A new Web advertising campaign launched by Olney-based windows installer Thermal Specialties and Installation Co. is poised to help boost the local economy. By partnering with the online marketing specialists at Prospect Genius to get the word out about its window and door installation services, Thermal Specialties and Installation Co. is encouraging Gaithersburg-area residents to spend their money at a local business rather than purchasing energy-efficient windows and other components through a big-box store. This new marketing strategy is also aimed at broadening the company’s customer base.

Why is buying local so vital? According to eLocal, if people in an average American city were to shift 10% of their spending from chains to local businesses, it would bring an additional $235 million per year to the community’s economy. Supporting a locally owned and operated window and door company like Thermal Specialties and Installation Co. means playing a role in this economy-boosting trend while also helping a small business survive and thrive.

Prospect Genius is implementing a variety of Internet marketing techniques to help Thermal Specialties and Installation Co. perform better on relevant search engine results pages, thus becoming more visible to prospective customers who are browsing the Web for a door or windows installer. One major tactic in Prospect Genius’s process is search engine optimization, or SEO. This involves incorporating industry- and location-specific keywords and phrases into the business’s Web site, helping search engines such as Google and Bing view the site as extremely relevant to queries using those search terms.

“Going forward, when people in Gaithersburg or the surrounding area query a search engine with terms like ‘entry doors,’ ‘french patio doors,’ and ‘replacement windows,’ they’ll be more likely to encounter Thermal Specialties and Installation Co.,” explains Matt Gallo, a senior Internet advertising strategist with Prospect Genius. “Increased Web prominence can help a small business better connect with people in its area who are seeking the products and services it provides.”

The Providence Community is Top Fundraiser in Most-Attended Worldwide Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Event

The Providence Golf and Country Club Community is known for its beautiful selection of homes within neighborhoods developed by ABD Development Company and other nationally known builders. Now it will be known as the home base for the highest earning non-corporate fundraising team for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in 2015. The “Providence Booby Brigade” raised in total over $28,000 with numerous initiatives by hardworking organizers, contributors, and participants.

Each year, the Providence group has raised even more funds than the previous year and 2015 was clearly the best year yet. “We did indeed make a difference. This event was the #1 Making Strides walk in the world with over 60,000 attendees,” says Margaret Hines, Providence Residents Clubhouse Manager and main organizer of the Providence team. “We were proud to once again be the #1 non-corporate team at this event with 33 active members this year. There were only two teams overall that raised more than the Providence Booby Brigade and they were both large corporations.”

“ABD Development has been very proud of the Providence team and it has been rewarding to watch the unity of the residents grow as the community itself continues to thrive,” says Yuval Botansky, President of ABD Development. This Central Florida- based company broke ground southwest of Orlando in 2005 to begin construction of what would become this award winning community. Currently within Providence, ABD has five move-in ready spec homes available for sale and three designer models available with builder leasebacks for investors. Prices range from $270-$700k.

“This was and always has been a wonderful, giving team effort and without every single one of our contributions we would not be able to make the difference we are for this very worthy cause,” says Margaret Hines. She adds that fundraising 2016 calendars are still on sale for $20, featuring local children's art work. Calendars can be purchased at the Residents Clubhouse, an expansive facility with resort style pool that is one of the many amenities available to those who live at Providence.

AALTCI Video Addresses Dealing with Long Term Care Insurance Rate Increases

A new video will help consumers facing rate increases on their long term care insurance protection understand options. The video was produced by the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance, a national trade organization.

"No one likes to pay more but there are many misconceptions when it comes to rate increases on long-term care insurance policies," explains Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long Term Care Insurance (AALTCI). The industry expert noted the organization received a record number of consumer calls regarding rate increases on existing policies.

"People are understandably angry but more importantly they are in the dark in terms of their options," Slome shares. "We wanted an introductory video that would allay some of that anger by explaining that insurance companies will offer them options and choices and that the vast majority of policyholders will accept one of the options."

According to AALTCI less than two percent of policyholders drop their long term care insurance coverage when facing a rate increase. "It's actually close to one percent," Slome notes. "Most people will either realize they have a good deal and pay the higher amount or evaluate the options being offered and continue to pay the same or in some cases they will even pay less money."

Some eight million Americans have long-term care insurance coverage in the United States. "Typically policies sold 10 years ago or more used assumptions or offered a five percent annual compounded growth of benefits," Slome shares. "These are typically the policies that are facing premium rate increases. New policies being sold today use pricing factors that make it very unlikely they will experience a future rate increase."

The video focused on dealing with long term care insurance rate increases can be viewed at https://youtu.be/fuwR81xIQNg.

The American Association for Long Term Care Insurance is a national trade organization established in 1998 to promote sound and affordable planning for Americans. For more information on long-term care insurance options or to find professionals in your area call the organization at 818-597-3227 or visit the organization's website at www.aaltci.org.

Nevada Desert Realty Celebrates Its First Christmas Party Nevada Desert Realty celebrated their first Christmas on Friday, the 11th of December at Fogo de Chao’s in Las Vegas Nevada.

Nevada Desert Realty celebrated Christmas on Friday, the 11th of December at Fogo de Chao’s in Las Vegas Nevada. The Las Vegas real estate agents at Nevada Desert Realty were excited to be a part of the first Nevada Desert Realty’s Christmas Party. Throughout the dinner, waiters came to provide the party with Brazilian BBQ and the Las Vegas real estate agents of Nevada Desert Realty were able to visit the buffet table to get salad, fruit and more.

This party included Las Vegas real estate agents Michael and Anna Klinger, Steve Sales, Karen Duncan, Monique Dolph, and loan officer Jackie Bennett. Everyone brought a spouse and enjoyed discussing their current real estate transactions, the status of the Las Vegas real estate market, and their plans for Christmas and New Years. Las Vegas real estate agents of Nevada Desert Realty also played a Christmas game where agents passed around prizes to a Christmas story twisted to include all the participating agents, loan officers, and spouses.

It was at this Christmas Party where the brokerage came together to discuss the finishing touches of their involvement in Santa for Students. This program allows local businesses to “Adopt” certain children who are in need, are given clothing and shoe sizes and sometimes gift ideas or the child’s favorite color so participants can find gifts perfect for the child or children they’ve “Adopted.”

The 10 children adopted by this brokerage included both boys and girls ages 4-14. These children either volunteered for the Santa for Students program or were chosen to be in the program by those who knew their family’s financial situation. Clark County Schools approved each child for the program, making sure the students who truly needed to be in the program where. The school district went to great lengths to keep the students’ information private and the students safe. At the Nevada Desert Realty Party, last minute gifts were discussed as well as how to deliver them to the office in time for the children to receive these gifts.

The Klinger Group at Nevada Desert Realty is owned by Michael and Anna Klinger. The Klingers have been Southern Nevada real estate agents for 14 years. Anna and Michael specialize in Henderson and Boulder City real estate, but have served the entire valley and are experts in the Las Vegas Metro area. The Klingers help first time home buyers, second time home buyers, home sellers, short sale transactions, investment buyers, and property management. The Klingers live with their family in the Las Vegas metro area. Nevada Desert Realty can be reached at 702-509-1446.

WestCorp Management Group CFO is Recognized as Top Technology Leader Las Vegas 2015 Top Tech Exec Award Goes to Scott Seegmiller.

Scott Seegmiller, CFO of WestCorp Management Group, was recognized as a top technology leader in the 2015 Las Vegas Top Tech Exec Awards. The program, sponsored by VEGAS INC Magazine and Cox Communications, recognizes southern Nevada business executives driving technological advances in their industries.

“Scott is known in the property management industry as one of its brightest minds when it comes to technology,” said Bob Weidauer, CEO of WestCorp Management Group. “He has a unique ability to use technology to create efficiencies in our processes and make them better.”

Seegmiller has worked with WestCorp Management Group since shortly after its formation in 2007. The company provides management and related property management services for more than 14,000 Class A to Class C units in 10 states across the country. Prior to his work with WestCorp, Seegmiller founded and operated one of the country’s largest property management firms.

“Scott combines his knowledge as a CPA, his deep understanding of the property management industry and his understanding new technologies to create valuable new accounting platforms in our industry,” said Weidauer. “Last year alone, he helped a firm with nine different properties using several accounting processes streamline onto one accounting services platform. It saved them thousands every month in both time and expenses.”

Last year, Seegmiller formed a new division of WestCorp Management Group, offering outsourced accounting services for investment groups, property management firms and individual property owners. “Accounting is one of the most important elements of successful property management, but one of the most expensive,” he said. “Our outsourced accounting services save our clients thousands every month and let them focus on their strengths of management and acquisitions.”

The fifth annual Las Vegas Top Tech Exec Awards is a collaboration between Cox Business and VEGAS INC. The program recognizes ‘Southern Nevadans who are helping shape the future before our very eyes. Recipients are people who are often on call 24-7, asked to solve problems…in a rapidly evolving industry.’

WestCorp Management Group is based in Las Vegas and manages dozens of properties in the area. It is currently handling leasing and management of nearly 1,300 new apartment units in Southern Nevada, approximately 40 percent of all the new units that were built in the area during the first half of 2015.

Brooklyn-Based Independent Magazine Turns to Crowdfunding to Create a "Reflective Living" Culture

The backbone of the U.S. is the small business. Ethos International epitomizes this concept.

"Ethos is a reflective living magazine for the 'morally bound fashion loving deep thinker.' We want to grow a reflective living culture but we can't do it alone and that's why we're seeking community support." - Nuriddeen Knight, Editor

Today's reader longs for a magazine combining both aesthetic beauty and philosophical wisdom. Ethos is capturing this ideal for each and every one.

The website also has book reviews and published fiction. Each part of the magazine is written from the point of view of an aesthetic seeking more than the both real beauty that is endowed in knowledge, wisdom and self- reflection.

Ethos is looking to expand their online magazine in to a reflective living culture including podcasts, events and print magazines. Doing so will require additional capital and assistance. They are looking to accomplish this via a crowdfunding campaign.

The crowdfunding campaign represents the same out of the box, different and critical thinking that Ethos is trying to support.

The campaign goes live on January 1st, 2016 2pm EST, link: igg.me/at/support-ethos. Visitors are encouraged to explore their essays, stories and designer features in the meantime.

Display Mannequin Design, La Rosa Launches New Collections

Constantly looking at innovative developments for window mannequin fittings and finishes, La Rosa has recently launched its new collections, called F, S and Q, which put emphasis respectively on femininity, charm and modernity, ensuring that every single detail will properly enhance the products and accessories that the dress form will be used to display in boutiques and retail stores.

F fashion mannequins line has been designed for classic femininity and sensuality, presented in elegant standing and sitting poses. Inspired by the natural forms of nature, this collection is measured, simple, with great attention to subtle movement and details, and devoid of all the features that can be used to trace it to a specific time and place. Manufactured using 100% traditional Italian methods and craftsmanship, its relaxed feel and wearability makes it perfect for ready-to-wear, casualwear, denim wear and underwear collections.

S is stylish and glamorous. Its poses have a retro vibe and its display mannequins remind us of the most famous supermodels immortalized by famed fashion photographers in photo shoots. Based on the most popular and classy standing and sitting poses, S is a beautifully sculpted display mannequin with a classic setting but with contemporary features. All mannequins are available in different colours, skin tones and make-up styles.

La Rosa’s Q fashion mannequins line features a lean and abstract physicality, able to meet today’s fashion standards, yet extremely recognisable and in line with the company’s code. Q window mannequins line takes its inspiration from a loose and contemporary feel, with cool and casual poses. It can be considered as a milestone towards the definition of a new body, typical of today’s generations, whose fascination lies in not tolerating any constraints in terms of name, category, age and gender. It is like a neutral shell that speaks all languages of the world, which will prove to be commercially adaptable as well as very close to the fashion world.

In natural foods, produce, meats, the deli-bakery, grocery and floral shops, Kroger’s Triangle area stores are expanding their supply of locally made products.

“The customer demand for local products is growing,” said Susan Terry, natural foods sales manager for Kroger’s Mid-Atlantic division. “We are listening to our customers, and they are telling us that they want to buy local.

“It’s a win-win situation,” she added. “When we carry local products, it’s good for the farmers, producers, the community, and, of course, Kroger.” The concept, she says, is like a community-focused market.

“At Kroger, we want to be recognized for supporting locally made products,” Terry continued. “We know customers have pride in buying them because they want local farmers and producers to be successful.”

Beginning in January, Kroger stores in the Triangle will carry Nello’s Sauce, a line of premium tomato sauces that are made in Raleigh. Nello’s is the latest addition to the many North Carolina food products available at Kroger, including Cape Fear Salsa, Miss Jenny’s Pickles, Bakers’ Peanuts, Pluto’s All-Natural Jamaican Jerk Sauce, Carolina Treet Barbecue Sauce, Adams Rib Rubb, Old Mule Sauce, Baldwin Charolais Beef, and a large selection of NC wines, among other items.

In the popular area of natural foods, Kroger works with growers so their products not only are of the highest quality, but also so their prices are competitive, Terry said.

Kroger recently hired a produce specialist, Duane Myers, who travels the southeast working with producers to help them meet the needs of the stores. Myers meets with farmers and producers on site to help them prepare their products for Kroger.

“We need to inform and assist producers with more regulations, packing, and labeling standards,” said David Villanueva, produce and floral sales manager for the Mid-Atlantic Division. “Our goal is to help them succeed in what is a different environment for many of them.”

Producers often come to the Mid-Atlantic office in Roanoke, Virginia to discuss their products, Terry says. “We are delighted to meet with them,” she says. “We discuss their ability to produce enough items for stores and distribution issues.” The Mid-Atlantic Division operates 120 stores in six states.

“After the product is ready, then we test it in their local market,” added Terry. “If there is demand, we add the product in additional stores, based on shelf space.”

Kroger has been stocking more local products than customers realized. “We are tagging local items in our stores and will be introducing new signage in stores to make it easier for our customers to identify locally made items,” Terry said.

BanCorp Properties™ Releases Unprecedented Stated Income Mortgage to Southern California at Up 75% Loan to Value That May be Used for Primary Residences

This new financing program is unlike any other that has hit the market in California. Previous programs that required no income verification were limited to investment properties and non-owner occupied properties: this new program caters directly to buyers who plan on living in the property as their primary residence, a paradigm shift from stated income programs available to the general public currently. No income verification financing is back, getting more buyers back in the Southern California housing market.

Greg Steinaker, president of BanCorp Properties was quoted as saying “This is the first legitimate stated income program that has hit the market since the financial crisis of 2007/2008, buyers who have difficulty proving their income, but obviously have the capacity for making recurring payments are now able to own a home again, with a very respectable interest rate.” The lending matrix for this stated income program is fairly straightforward, the maximum loan-to-value is 75% (a 25% down payment is required), the minimum FICO score is 680, the maximum loan amount is $5mm, rates average 4.75%, and the terms are either 5/1 or 7/1. The borrower must verify that they have at least 9 months of mortgage payments saved in the bank, the total costs run approximately 3% and there is no prepayment penalty.

This program is a purchase-money product created for the Realtors and clients of BanCorp Properties who are interested in buying a home. BanCorp also offers a sub-prime product (for those with less-than-perfect credit with FICO scores going all the way down to 500. We do not verify income under this program with tax returns, but rather with bank statements, which makes the pre-approval process much easier, typically qualifying our clients for much higher home value than if using tax returns, where they may not quality at all. The minimum down payment under our subprime program is 25% and the rates average approximately 7%.

The Southern California real estate market is moving a break-neck speed, which makes the selection of a Real Estate Broker all the more important. With over $270,000,000 million in closed transactions, BanCorp has decided to lead from the front in a very competitive real estate market.

Ex-Google Tech Lead Jens Meiert with New Book, The Little Book of HTML/CSS Coding Guidelines

Jens Oliver Meiert (meiert.com) and O’Reilly Media (oreilly.com) publish web development booklet, “The Little Book of HTML/CSS Coding Guidelines”: http://www.oreilly.com/web-platform/free/little-book-html-css-coding-guidelines.csp.

The book, per the O’Reilly website, “Explores the theory and practice of coding guidelines and shows, using Google’s HTML and CSS standards as a particular example, how consistency and care can make the code base you create today much easier to deal with when you—or someone else—work on it later.”

Jens Meiert, who had earlier in 2015 already published three books, one with O’Reilly, described his new work saying “It should serve as a small but solid complement to an area of our field that is lacking more attention and examination.”

For 2016, Meiert has announced to work on a third Little Book, but kept details under wraps.

Citizens Commission on Human Rights Urges Victims of Brain Stimulation Abuse to Report

Almost exactly two years ago on January 1, 2014, Scientific American magazine published an article on Deep Brain Stimulation, describing an experiment on a Dutch man wherein psychiatric researchers “…bored small holes in his skull and guided two long, thin probes deep into his head. The ends of the probes were lined with small electrodes… (psychiatrists) ran the connecting wires under his scalp, behind his ear and down to a battery pack sewn under the skin of his chest. Once turned on, the electrodes began delivering constant electrical pulses.”

In response to this alarming new therapy, the Citizens Commission of Human Rights of Nashville (CCHR Nashville) has called for victims to report abuse suffered during this or any other psychiatric treatment.

On the website cchrnashville.org, is the question: “Do you know someone who has been damaged by experimental psychiatric treatments including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), vagus nerve stimulation (VNS), deep brain stimulation (DBS) or any other electric shock or magnetic wave to the brain?” Then follows a link to report abuse from these treatments.

CCHR has long been an advocate for human rights, especially as relates to patients’ rights in the field of mental health. Per the international CCHR website, cchr.org, “CCHR has long fought to restore basic inalienable human rights to the field of mental health, including, but not limited to, full informed consent regarding the medical legitimacy of psychiatric diagnosis, the risks of psychiatric treatments, the right to all available medical alternatives and the right to refuse any treatment considered harmful.”

Abuses from treatment may be reported online or by mail. The report form can be found at cchrnashville.org/report-abuse.

CCHR is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious mental health watchdog. Its mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. CCHR receives reports about abuses in the field of mental health and is especially interested in situations where persons experienced abuse or damage due to a false diagnosis or unwanted and harmful psychiatric treatments, such as psychiatric drugs, electroshock (ECT) and electronic or magnetic brain stimulation (TMS). CCHR is often able to assist with filing complaints, and can work with a person’s attorney to further investigate the case. To contact CCHR Nashville for more information, visit cchrnashville.org.

Big Trees Inc. to Install Douglas Fir Trees Onto Large Seattle Estate

Big Trees Inc., (http://bigtreesupply.com/) a tree transplant and tree nursery company in the Seattle area, has been contracted to procure, deliver and install a number of 20’-25’ Douglas Fir trees onto a large hillside estate in West Seattle which is being developed over the coming year. The hillside location and large size of the trees make this a challenging task.

The process began when Big Trees was contacted by the landscape architect for the estate. They said there was a need for larger evergreen trees, and the Douglas Fir was chosen as the tree type for the project, based on their size and foliage. The 4 large Douglas Firs were chosen by the client’s representatives out of a field of dozens of candidates, and those trees were set aside for the project. Once all the details were ironed out and agreed upon, the digging of the trees was accomplished, and the first of the four trees was delivered.

A large crane was moved into position to lift and set the tree into a side of the location that was unreachable by all other options for handling. Once the tree was in position and properly set, bags of well-draining topsoil were also lifted to the position and used to backfill the tree’s new location, adding to the necessary drainage potential. The tree was staked and made ready for the significant winds it might encounter from time to time at this location. There are three trees remaining to be brought in at a later date once the project is further along. They are all in the 20’-25’ height range and weigh around 3,000 pounds each.

Nancy Penrose, the owner of Big Trees, had these comments regarding the project: “Our whole staff, from the sales team to the laborers and foreman, all play vital roles in making these kinds of projects come together. There can be a lot of moving parts to manage properly, and if any missteps are made, they can lead to situations that cannot be made whole again. I’m very proud of our team, and we look forward to moving the other three trees into their new home over the coming year.”

Nancy Penrose is the owner of Big Trees Inc. (http://www.bigtreesupply.com), located in Snohomish, WA, in the Seattle area. The company is one of the largest tree nurseries in the Seattle area with over 120,000 trees available in over 300 varieties. They not only can deliver young trees but also mature trees in a wide range of sizes. Some types of trees available include spring flowering, deciduous, evergreen, and privacy trees. The company also does tree transplanting including large trees. Their blog can be seen at http://www.bigtreesupply.com/blog/.

Melson Nominated for Most Inspirational of 2015 Junior middleweight boxer and philanthropist Boyd “Rainmaker” Melson has been nominated for Most Inspirational by Ring Magazine.

New York, NY (December 29, 2015) – Junior middleweight boxer and philanthropist Boyd “Rainmaker” Melson has been nominated for Most Inspirational by Ring Magazine.

Having dedicated most of his life during the last 13 years to help cure Chronic Spinal Cord Injuries, Melson’s selfless efforts have been chronicled by various media outlets. The visibility of the cause he fights for and organization he donates 100% of his fight purses to, Team Fight to Walk, has grown tremendously during the last few years.

The 2003 West Point graduate also helped organize three successful “Fighting for the Cure” galas and successfully lobbied New York’s powers that be to reinstate a bill that allocates a percentage of each moving violation towards Spinal Cord Injury research. Last summer, the 15-1-1 junior middleweight along with Dr. Wise Young, Dr. Patricia Morton and others met with Congressman Chaka Fattah at a briefing at the Rayburn House Office Building Washington, DC to discuss clinical trials that could help hundreds of thousands suffering from Spinal Cord Injuries walk again. Word from Congress about the trial going forward is expected within 90 days.

Overall, Melson’s raised more than $350,000 for Team Fight to Walk.

“Last December the WBC honored me with their Ambassador Of Peace Award and this past July the NABF honored me with their Humanitarian Award,” said Melson, who captured the WBC USNBC title with a career best performance in May 2015. "A sport that I was forced to first partake in because of a mandatory gym class at West Point my Plebe (freshman) year along with my belief how I could use the boxing ring in order to help find a way to help people walk again has turned into this.”

“My only hope is that any human being learning of this story, especially children, internalize the following: understand your power of creating a vision, understanding what your own abilities are to achieve that vision and prepare to suffer while holding on to that vision for as long as their is air in your lungs.

Successful Gettysburg Battlefield Artists-in-Residence Program Expands

The National Parks Arts Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit, is pleased to be working again with the National Park Service at Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Foundation to broaden its Artist-in-Residence program. The 2016 program, set to coincide with the National Park Service’s Centennial, will offer eight month-long residencies at the park starting in March and continuing through early November.

The National Parks Arts Foundation also plans, in coordination with the Gettysburg Foundation and other partners, to bring an as-unnamed artist to Gettysburg to do a major onsite work this summer that will no doubt fascinate park visitors.

The Residencies, though sponsor support, are available to artists working in any media or performance approach, with no application fee. In addition, there is also a $1000 stipend available for each Resident Artist.

The deadline for the first program is approaching on the 10th of January, 2016. This is the first of eight artists’ residency programs available at Gettysburg National Military Park in the next year. Applications are still open to artists of all types and media at their application portal: https://nationalparksartsfoundation.submittable.com/submit/51158

The program is offered thanks to the input and support of the National Park Service and the Gettysburg Foundation whose joint efforts make the park the foremost visitor destination for those interested in the epic history of the American Civil War. Another important community partner for NPAF, is the Adams County Arts Council which has been crucial in helping make outreach in presenting our visiting artists to the local community and southern Pennsylvania. For more information, visit the foundation website www.nationalparksartsfoundation.org

"Our expanded Artist-in-Residence program at Gettysburg National Military Park in partnership with the National Parks Arts Foundation and the Gettysburg Foundation is an innovative program that increases the reach of the park,” said Ed W Clark, superintendent of Gettysburg National Military Park. "As we celebrate the next century of national parks, art programs like this allow us to inspire, engage and connect with a new generation and in new ways."

Gettysburg Foundation President Joanne Hanley said, "Gettysburg's Artists-in-Residence have added an artistic dimension to how those stories are shared as our visitors are able to experience an artist's interpretation of the park, meet the artists in person, and engage and connect with them as they express, through art, the power of this place. In the year ahead we look forward to their artistic contributions that enrich our visitors' experiences at Gettysburg."

Almost a Quarter of All Deaths in the UAE Are Caused by Cardiovascular Disease Experts deliberate on management, treatment and causes of cardiovascular disease at Arab Health in January

According to experts, approximately one fourth all deaths in the UAE are caused by cardiovascular disease. This makes it the leading cause of death among national and non-nationals alike. It is no secret that an unhealthy lifestyle and dietary habits have led to the increase of the prevalence of cardiovascular disease in the UAE population.

The increased consumption of poor quality foods and the adoption of a sedentary lifestyle contribute to this growing issue. Moreover the government health entities have introduced rigorous campaigns to raise awareness and promote improving diets and introducing exercise to daily schedules.

Dr Alawi Alsheikh-Ali, Chairman: Institute of Cardiac Sciences, Sheikh Khalifa Medical City, Abu Dhabi, UAE will discuss the management, treatment and causes of cardiovascular disease amongst UAE nationals at the Public Health Conference during the Arab Health Exhibition and Congress. The conference will take place from the 25-26 January 2016 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Center Dubai, UAE.

According to the most recent national health statistics, ~ 40% of cardiovascular deaths among UAE nationals occur in women. Cardiovascular disease is one of the leading causes of death in both men and women; it kills more women than breast cancer or any other form of cancer.

“Several factors increase the risk of having cardiovascular disease. These include diabetes, high blood pressure, smoking including ‘sheesha’ and ‘medwakh’, abnormal lipid profiles, and sedentary lifestyles,” says Dr Alsheikh-Ali.

There are several campaigns led by national authorities, health centers, and professional societies to raise awareness about cardiovascular disease and it risk factors. The Emirates Cardiac Society runs an annual campaign of awareness and screening during the World Heart Day on September 29.

“The most important part of managing cardiovascular disease is preventing them in the first place. To be able to avert them, it is crucial to detect and manage the risk factors. Therefore, screening is very important, especially for monitoring high blood pressure, blood sugar and lipids,” commented Dr Alsheikh-Ali.

Interstate Container Exhibits Benefits of Sustainable Produce Boxes at SERFVC 2016

oxes, will introduce how to transition – one phase at a time – away from wax boxes at Booth #437 / 439 during SE Regional Fruit & Vegetable Conference 2016 at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center in Georgia on January 7-10. Currently, Interstate Container produces and ships over 5 million sustainable boxes every month from plants in Columbia, SC and Cambridge, MD.

The Sustainable Packaging Movement

With supermarket chains, foodservice distributors, and restaurant chains mandating the transition to wax-free packaging, Interstate Container works Hand-in-Hand with growers and packers to shift to wax-free coated corrugated boxes. Corrugated boxes in the U.S. are the most recyclable packaging material, currently at a rate of 90%, with retailers leading the way [1].

Greencoat Benefits Fresh Produce Industry

Greencoat offers growers and packers a water-repellent box that holds up during shipment and is more cost-efficient and recyclable than a wax-cascaded box. Undergoing continuous trials with Global Green USA, Greencoat is a proven replacement for wax boxes in the fresh produce industry.

Previously, fresh produce customers used to pay wax disposal fees of up to $70 per ton. With Greencoat, however, national supermarket chains and restaurant chains can eliminate this unnecessary cost, instead generating up to $80 per ton when recycled.

Eco-Friendly Fresh Produce Supply Chain

By transitioning to Greencoat, fresh produce growers and packers can drastically reduce the current unrecyclable solid waste generated from paraffin-coated cardboard, which stands at a high of 1.45 million tons according to Global Green USA Coalition for Resource Recovery (CoRR) [2].

Greencoat boxes are FBA-certified 100% recyclable and repulpable. Recycling 100 tons of Greencoat boxes saves 1,527 million BTUs and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 312 tons of MTCO2E and 85 tons of MTCE.

About Interstate Container

Interstate Container combines local presence with global experience as a division of Interstate Resources, Inc., employing over 1500 people in the US, and a member of the multinational INDEVCO Group. The company’s reach spans the Eastern and Southern US with 12 manufacturing plants and 7 warehouses located in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, East and South regions.
