The Puente Hills Landfill is home to more than 130 million tons of trash.Landfills help hide garbage, but they do little to solve the problems of accumulating waste. Besides the risk of groundwater contamination, landfills produce gas emissions that are harmful to human health, volatile and potentially explosive, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. The only way to stem the tide of trash flowing into landfills is to stop producing as much waste. Simple, at-home steps include shopping with reusable bags, avoiding overpackaged products and taking up composting.The Holy Family Church’ Environmental Ministry meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Pastoral Center.

MCHS CFO appointed interim CEO

first_img Twitter WhatsApp MCH CFO Robert Abernethy The Ector County Hospital District Board of Directors announced Friday that Medical Center Health System’s Chief Financial Officer Robert Abernethy has been appointed interim Chief Executive Officer. Abernethy replaces Rick Napper who announced his retirement effective Friday. “We’re looking forward to having Robert take us into this next phase” Board President Don Hallmark said in a prepared statement. “We are excited for him to lead us as we search for a full time Chief Executive Officer.” Abernethy will assume administrative responsibilities for MCHS on Monday. Abernethy served MCHS as Chief Financial Officer from August 2000 to September 2012. Following his retirement, Abernethy rejoined Medical Center Health System as Chief Financial Officer in November 2017. Napper told the board earlier this month he was leaving Odessa and retiring from healthcare sooner than his previously stated retirement date of Sept. 15. He said his plans were to move with his wife to their new home in Kentucky.

Trending now in IT: Security, privacy and Generation Z

first_imgFrom social platforms to wearables and machine learning, new technologies are coming at credit unions faster than many would like. And information management is becoming a much bigger challenge for us all.Facebook, Twitter and other social, mobile platforms are teaching businesses how to market to consumers. At the same time, consumer privacy is slipping away. Every time someone arrives at the airport, eats dinner with friends or goes to beach, it is out there on social sites for the world to see. How consumers are going to manage their privacy remains a question going forward.I serve on the steering committee for the Secure Payments Task Force, established by the Federal Reserve to involve a cross-section of industry leaders in an ongoing discussion about the state of the payment market. American Express and MasterCard also sit on this committee, as do many global financial institutions and big box merchants.The Fed recognizes payment security as a critical issue for the nation and is committed to making strides on this front. Our sister committee, the Faster Payments Task Force, is chartered with bringing new efficiencies to the payment landscape. These organizations are going to prove critical for credit unions, transcending Money20/20 to shape an environment in which payments are both more secure and faster from the consumer perspective all the way up to the operations of large financial institutions. This is exciting to see. continue reading » 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Do we want to deal with tourism or not? The Croatian Chamber of Commerce is demanding the lifting of the construction ban during the summer

first_img“We sent the request on behalf of construction companies whose working conditions were significantly hampered by the corona crisis. During the pandemic, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce managed to prevent construction sites from closing and to open shops for construction materials and equipment as soon as possible, which preserved activity and jobs in the industry. The complete interruption of all earthworks and construction works would make it difficult to recover and carry out the scheduled works, which would cause additional financial damage and consequently lead to the dismissal of a large number of workers.”, Said the Vice President of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce for Construction, Transport and Communications Mirjana Čagalj. Or works during the summer or tourism? We can’t do both. According to the current Construction Act, cities and municipalities can make decisions on the ban on works, but the Construction and Utilities Sector of the Croatian Chamber of Commerce says that exceptional conditions have been met due to the pandemic and that the necessary approvals and consents of local authorities must allow activities to continue.  On behalf of the construction companies of the Split-Dalmatia County, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce also sent a letter to the Mayor of Split, Andri Krstulović to Opara, in which he requests that earthworks and construction works be allowed in the city area in the summer period (from June 15 to September 15).  Opara supported the Chamber’s proposal and invited all interested investors and contractors to send their requests for the continuation of construction work during the summer so that he could submit them to the City Council for discussion. “At the moment, I consider it extremely important that the investments that can start the economy the fastest are enabled and encouraged, so I will recommend to the Council a positive solution to all received requests.”, Said Opara.  Do we want to deal with tourism or not? Interestingly, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce asked the Ministry of Construction and Physical Planning to send a recommendation to the local self-government to lift the ban on construction works in the summer.  Photo: Pixabay.com On the other hand, this year we feel more than ever how dependent we are on tourism, we are fighting frantically for every guest to be able to save everything they can, and at the same time we want to allow construction work. Who wants to be on vacation or disturb the peace construction work? No one, absolutely incompatible with tourism. Regardless of the current situation, reduced number of tourists and large losses in the construction sector, we simply cannot have both. “Lifting the ban would significantly help construction and related industries, without seriously jeopardizing the tourist season, which for objective reasons will be somewhat more modest.”, Explained Cagalj.  Insane and counterproductive. Let’s decide: Or construction works or tourism? You can’t do both at the same time. No, any negative advertisement, and especially at this point, would come back to us negatively multiple times, both in the short and long term. With all the efforts that are being made, we want to drive away that small number of tourists. Just imagine an article in a German newspaper and negative publicity: Germans came to the Adriatic and were greeted by construction work. Do we really need that? Otherwise, let alone in this situation? If the decision is to start with the construction works, then the tourist season should be given up. Yes, it’s that simple … Because we never, let alone now, need negative advertising and the departure of tourists from destinations due to noise from construction machinery. The construction sector needs to be helped in some other way, not certainly through construction work during the summer. It is possible that the infrastructure works could continue in the previous period with the observance of all measures.last_img read more
