Press Breakfast Concentrates on Utility Future

The Future of Consulting Lives Here

Decarbonization, resiliency, and spreading electrification in new areas are all priorities for 2020”

— Jan Vrins, Managing Director and Global Energy Practice Leader, Guidehouse

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — "White House Chronicle," the weekly news and public affairs program on PBS and SiriusXM Radio, is reviving a series of press breakfasts in Washington, dating back to 1974 when they were held for energy reporters.

The first press breakfast in the series — called "White House Chronicle Presents," will be held at the National Press Club on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 9 a.m. It will feature three Guidehouse (formerly Navigant) experts who will outline the year ahead — this year of change — and beyond for the electric utility industry.

Llewellyn King, executive producer and host of the program, explains, "During the energy crisis, I launched a series of breakfasts and media events which ran until I sold my newsletter publishing company in 2006. They were held by my publications which included The Energy Daily, Defense Week and New Technology Week.

"I've been asked to revive these, and I'm doing so now under the umbrella of 'White House Chronicle'. They are open to all media, including new media. All the breakfasts will be held at the National Press Club."

The experts at the press briefing will include Jan Vrins, Managing Director and Global Energy Practice Leader for Guidehouse. Vrins is a widely known and respected consultant in the electric utility industry. He will be joined by consultants Mackinnon Lawrence and Aida Hakirevic. All three are devoted to helping utilities move ahead in a time of green energy, microgrids, smart meters, smart cities and existential threats.

"Decarbonization, resiliency, and spreading electrification in new areas are all priorities for 2020," Vrins says. "We expect to see many initiatives in our industry and at all levels of government as the focus on a cleaner and more customer-centric energy ecosystem evolves."

King says, "As in the past, we hope to get reporters in and out of these events with a story for that day. No speeches, just news."

Media Invited to Electric Utility Briefing at USEA

Bringing the transformative power of 900 MHz private broadband to utilities.

Anterix is revolutionizing the modern grid with private 900 MHz spectrum.”

— Robert Schwartz, COO, Anterix

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the event of a major blackout, whether from natural phenomena or cyber attack, communications become vital.

But many utilities are tied to communications systems that are integrated into their grid operations, and as such would fail along with the rest of the system. Resilience in communications is paramount.

On Wednesday, Jan. 22, at 10 a.m. at the United States Energy Association's headquarters in the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C., Robert Schwartz, chief operating officer of Anterix, will explain how the company, using its exclusive broadcast spectrum and proven broadband LTE technology, can provide safe, resilient communications for electric utilities that can survive natural disasters and cyber attack.

"Anterix is revolutionizing the modern grid with private 900 MHz spectrum," says Schwartz. "We partner with critical infrastructure industries and enterprises through the power of broadband connectivity."

Schwartz says Anterix is serving a new, resilient infrastructure that is taking shape as threats and pressures are mounting for the electrical grid.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed Proclaims January 16 as SEALION DAY

Mayor London Breed at Sea Lion Day Proclamation with Aquarium of the Bay President & CEO George Jacob, CEO of Pier 39 Taylor Safford and the Marina Harbor Master Sheila Chandor

Smithsonian Affiliated Aquarium of the Bay Launches 30 Painted Sea Lions to Mark the 30th Anniversary of their Arrival at PIER 39 in San Francisco

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the arrival of the sea lions at PIER 39, Aquarium of the Bay launched thirty six-foot-tall sea lion statues exclusively painted by thirty Bay Area artists with QR Code enabled environmental messages. Bringing thousands of curious onlookers when they debuted at the PIER 39 plaza entrance, the painted Sea Lions instantly endeared themselves to visitors passing by.

The amazing Sea Lions will dot premier spots across San Francisco after January 20th, where they will remain on display for the remainder of 2020. Conceived by the Smithsonian Affiliated Aquarium of the Bay, Sea Lion Center and jointly implemented with PIER 39, this art installation is part of the largest public STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) initiative in California.

California sea lions began arriving in PIER 39’s Marina in late 1989 after the earthquake Prieta Loma. They came sparingly at first, then soon began arriving in droves, quickly reaching more than 500 in number by January of 1990, eventually peaking upwards of 1400. With a protected environment and a plentiful supply of food from the Bay, the sea lions quickly made PIER 39’s K-Dock their new home. The boisterous barking pinnipeds have attracted millions of visitors from around the world over the decades. Their residency at PIER 39 is truly a natural phenomenon that brings joy to Bay Area locals as well as visitors from around the world annually.

George Jacob, President & CEO of the Smithsonian Affiliated Aquarium of the Bay, conceived the "Sea Lions in San Francisco" initiative inviting Bay Area artists to paint environmental messages on 30 Six-foot tall Sea Lion Statues. A Jury drawn from PIER 39, Aquarium of the Bay, San Francisco Travel, San Francisco Environment and Golden Gates Parks Conservancy and San Francisco Port Commission selected thirty winning entries from over 180 submissions. With Opening remarks from Taylor Safford, the CEO of PIER 39, Jacob shared the 18 months of the project details in the making. Mayor London Breed declared January 16 as a SEA LION DAY in San Francisco with a surprise Proclamation!

“The Port is proud to host the sea lion installation all along the waterfront,” said Elaine Forbes, Executive Director of the Port of San Francisco. “We love seeing the majestic marine mammals in the water and are looking forward to seeing the artistic renderings dot the waterfront providing residents and visitors Inspiration and important information about climate change and sea level rise.”

Breast Cancer Board Member Jonas Muthoni on

Deviate Agency

Jonas Muthoni

Breast Cancer Angels is a local non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization that financially assists individuals during treatment for breast cancer.

LOS ANGELES , CALIFORNIA, USA, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Question:: Could you tell me about your day job?
Answer: I am the founder of Deviate, a full digital marketing & software development agency in Los Angeles. Deviate is a specialized team with one of the strongest branding, digital marketing and social media strategies practiced in the entire industry. We corner the market with very exclusive learned skill sets known by only few in the marketing world. Our team of experts have delivered some of the most effective campaigns ranging from global enterprises and today's up and coming startup businesses. We help our clients win…period.

Question: What motivated you to become a member of the board?
Answer: I have always been an advocate of giving back to various causes. A few years ago, I attended an event in Orange County and the charity organization that was featured was Breast Cancer Angels. The director Debbie Stroman spoke about the organization and the effect it had on people’s lives while going through treatment. I talked to Debbie after the event and later met with 2 other board members, Holly and Lori as part of their vetting process. After learning the positive changes BCA was bringing to families during the hard times and the personal approach, they had in the desire to help, I wanted to be a part of that. The hope they bestowed upon these families and how much it meant to the patients and their loved ones, was truly special. The organization story on how they started under the leadership of Faye Dietiker to where they were then, I realized that the organization was continuing to grow, which was exciting. Their mission and desire of providing financial and emotional assistance for women and their families as they are going through breast cancer treatment was really appealing to me partially because I’m a Dad and the relationship I have with my mother and sisters. It just felt like the right thing at the right time and it is one of the best decisions I have made in my life, and I am honored to be a part of it.

Question: What does BCA mean to you?
Answer: Breast Cancer Angels, the name, represents a very courageous, aspirational meaning. When I first heard it, I thought, “can it get any better?” the name speaks to what I have come to learn and see how BCA changes lives of patients and their families, there are true angels. The name and the mission provide a celebration of hope. It’s very clear what’s important to the organization and what it wants. It points us in a direction. We’re not just trying to make people feel more comfortable or improving things a little. We really do want to see families regain hope during the hardships faced when going through breast cancer treatment.

Question: How has breast cancer touched you personally?
Answer: Enormously! I’ve had friends and family that have gone through treatment, but it is through my involvement with BCA that I have experienced hope and tears of joy seeing and hearing stories of survival, families coming back together and being part of an organization and leadership that truly cares. I have experienced true generosity and being part of a team that rejoices in giving.

Question: What is your favorite BCA memory?
Answer: There is plenty but one that stands out to me is when my 11-year-old daughter attended one of the events and she commented that how amazing it was for everything she heard and experienced and wanted to know how as a child she can get involved. She wanted to know whether she can be an advocate for breast cancer at her school. We have many schools today who participate in FUNraising for BCA with walks and more.

Question: When you talk to friends, family and colleagues about BCA, what are the three most important things you want them to take away from the conversation?
Answer: I want them to understand how much of an impact a little help could make in someone else’s life during the hard times. I want them to understand the gift of being healthy and living a purpose driven life that impacts positive change.

Question: What are your hopes for the organization?
Answer: I get excited every time I think of the potential for growth and the impact it would have on many more lives. Currently, BCA assists families in Orange County, Long Beach/South Bay, and San Diego, Los Angeles and a onetime help with Inland Empire. My hope is that we are able to grow and help more families outside of our current cities/counties.

Question: How do you support the mission of BCA?
Answer: I support it by expanding the awareness in my network, not only of Breast Cancer Angels but about what the organization stands for and is doing. As a digital Agency owner, I am able to assist with certain areas that would help increase the organization exposure. Because of my profession, I like to believe that my expertise hold value to the organization’s missions and goals. It is also empowering to know that the other board members have confidence in where the organization is going when I weigh in on important topics.

Question: What is one surprising or fun fact about you that our readers might not know?
Answer: I am scared of heights. I would never jump out of a helicopter; so many what ifs? It clouds my mind and it is frightening.

HFI-U Recommends Ergonomic Facility Waste Handling and Recycling

Ergonomic waste handling helps prevent neck, shoulder, and back strain, while saving money.

HFI-U recommends simple ergonomic interventions for waste handling that reduce cleaning worker injuries, insurance claims, and related costs”

— Allen Rathey, HFI-U

NAMPA, ID, US, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — HFI-U is recommending simple ergonomic interventions for waste and recyclables handling that reduce cleaning worker injuries, insurance claims, and related costs to business.

Since the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) states professional cleaning workers have relatively high rates of injury – and since waste handling and disposal is a primary job function – it is vital janitorial workers have the right training, techniques and tools to safely dispose of the waste generated by business.

Fitness First

Simple exercises that strengthen the back, neck, shoulders, and legs are helpful for custodial teams, as their jobs involve a fair amount of lifting and bending.

These may include:

1. Bent-Over Rowing Using an Elastic Band for Resistance
2. Reverse Flys
3. Isometrics
4. Shoulder Retractions
5. Squats, Lunges, and Other Exercises

Be sure workers warm up, and a doctor approves whatever exercises are selected.

Next, choose methods and equipment that reduce lifting and awkward motions.

Safer Techniques and Tools

Per the UCLA Cleaning Workers Research Database, a 2004 study by Leeds Metropolitan University found “casual employees had less desirable and predictable work schedules … and more associated health complaints than ‘permanent’ workers.”

Higher-than-average turnover and prevalence of short-term employees in custodial work should drive the value of ergonomically “worker-proofing” waste and recyclable handling to reduce injury due to excess or improper lifting.

This can be as simple using smaller receptables (e.g., 23 gallons vs. 55 gallons) and emptying frequently to prevent overfilling.

A useful innovation is the newer ergonomic-release waste container with a foot-activated removable base (Ref: EZ Dump) that frees the main body of the container from the bottom, liberating the full liner from the container to be removed using two hands rather than one-handed “dead-lifting” the bag from a single-piece receptacle.

Removing the comparatively lightweight upper portion of the container also eliminates fighting the suction/friction forces integral to unibody receptacles, and stops forcing workers to lift heavy loads above waist level to free bags from containers. This also increases load control and physical efficiency.

Per human factors specialist, Joseph Velasquez, Clinical Lecturer at Arizona State University, it is important from an ergonomic standpoint to avoid “forced lifting” of heavy trash or recycling loads, and “keeping contents close to the floor yields ergonomic benefits…”

Per Dr. Thomas Renner, President and Founder of Corporate Injury Management Associates, using the newer ergonomic-release receptacles means very little effort is needed to remove the trash bag, whereas removing the bag from a standard container often prompts using “forward flexion techniques resulting in anterior shoulder displacement, and this biomechanical position significantly increases the risk of shoulder and low back injury.”

Reducing Costs While Saving Backs

When using ergonomic-release receptables – due to lighter demands on liners – trash bags last longer, require less tensile strength and puncture resistance, reduce the need to double bag to prevent leaks, and save money.

Less physical demand on workers is perhaps the greatest benefit of all, as reducing back injury and strains is not only a satisfying health outcome but – since an average back injury costs $37,000 – a gratifying bottom line benefit as well.

Denmark SailGP Team presented by ROCKWOOL announces crew following New Zealand selection camp

(L-R) Hans-Christian Rosendahl, Lars-Peter Rosendahl, Tom Johnson, Nicolai Sehested, Rasmus Køstner, Martin Kirkerterp

Denmark will join this picture next year for SailGP 2020, with support from main sponsor ROCKWOOL

Helmsman Nicolai Sehested leads dynamic new team for SailGP Season 2

ROCKWOOL Group (NASDAQ:ROCK A )

MARSDEN POINT, NEW ZEALAND, January 16, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Denmark SailGP team, presented by ROCKWOOL, announced today the crew for its debut campaign, just over one month ahead of the start of SailGP Season 2.

Helmsman Nicolai Sehested, the youngest helm in the race series, selected the six-man team following a two-week training and selection camp on Bream Bay in New Zealand’s Northland region, where the group had its first taste of the world’s fastest sailboat.

The Danish team consists of five Danes and one Australian: Nicolai Sehested, 30, of Copenhagen (helm); Tom Johnson, 28, of Mandurah, Western Australia (wing trimmer); Rasmus Køstner, 41, of Middelfart (flight controller); Martin Kirketerp, 37, of Aarhus (grinder); Hans-Christian Rosendahl, 23, of Copenhagen (grinder); and Lars-Peter Rosendahl, 23, of Copenhagen (grinder).

As well as containing SailGP’s youngest skipper, the Danish boat also carries the first siblings to compete together at the race series, with twin brothers Lars-Peter and Hans-Christian Rosendahl winning selection.

The Danish team, racing at SailGP for the first time, faces a significant challenge as a late newcomer entry with very limited time to train before the first race. Despite this, the team is getting up to speed quickly, hitting 48.7 knots (90 kilometers per hour) within the first hour of sailing in New Zealand, close to the top speed for the F50 catamaran.

The next stop is Sydney (February 28-29), the first of the global race series where the Denmark SailGP team will compete for the sport’s largest prize of USD 1 million.

Nicolai said: “It was exciting to get our entire team out on the F50 to familiarise ourselves with this incredible boat and to experience the speed it is capable of reaching when a crew works hard and performs well together. Our team brings incredible raw talent to the competition, and we can’t wait for the chance to compete against the best sailors in the world. We are eager to write the next chapter in Denmark’s rich sailing history, and we hope to inspire future generations to get out on the water and try out this amazing sport.”

Mirella Vitale, Senior Vice President at ROCKWOOL, said: “We are exceptionally proud to present a Danish team to SailGP for the first time. This sponsorship provides an excellent platform for ROCKWOOL to further build awareness about sustainability and demonstrate the role that stone wool plays in creating vibrant, future-proofed cities that are built with the health of people and the planet in mind and mitigate the environmental challenges of tomorrow."

“The SailGP series visits the harbours of some of the greatest cities around the globe, cities that face significant sustainability issues and a shared climate change threat. Sailing is a team challenge, as is sustainability and climate change, and requires us all to work together to address. We look forward to meeting people from around the world to discuss these issues, explore solutions, and share our optimism of the future.”

Following Sydney (February 28-29), SailGP heads to San Francisco (May 2-3) and New York (June 12-13), ahead of the first European event of the year in Cowes on the Isle of Wight, UK, (August 14-15). The final season schedule will be announced on February 3.
