"New Earth," A Song for the Future by Kate Magdalena

And I saw a new heaven, and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away.

San Francisco Artist Kate Magdalena Sings A Possible Future

If the collective imagination has power, holding the image of the earth healed and whole may serve us.”

— Kate Magdalena

SAN FRANCISCO , CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Into the dark pond of looming environmental challenges, Kate Magdalena offers her latest song “New Earth.” Like the calm at the center of a storm, the song and accompanying artwork by California visionary painter Suzanne De Veuve, posit an earth healed and whole, a living planet in a universe created by a loving intelligence. Beyond the human ravages upon nature, the earth continues to pour its abundant life upon humankind, and if given the chance, can heal. Beyond the human manipulation of the earth’s natural systems, beyond the threat of nuclear disaster, beyond the destruction of the earth’s forests and oceans, beyond the wars, Kate puts forward the picture of the earth healed. If the collective imagination has power, as Carl Jung expressed, then holding a picture of the earth healed and whole may serve as a constructive inspiration, offering possibilities that the opposing view does not. The song also echoes the words powerfully expressed in the Bible, "For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things will not be remembered, nor come to mind." Isaiah 65:17

“New Earth” is the most recent release from Kate’s upcoming album “A Larger Dance,” coming this October. The recordings have been produced by GRAMMY-nominated producer Billy Smiley (Johnny Cash, Whiteheart, Clay Aiken, and the Newsboys) and feature some of Nashville’s finest musicians with Fred Eltringham (The Wallflowers and Sheryl Crow), Byron House (Robert Plant and the Band of Joy), Blair Masters (Garth Brooks) and Brennan Smiley (The Technicolors).

Navy Pipe Welder

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center is Here for Veterans

The Steinberg Law Group Has the Experiences, Resources and Results to Obtain the Maximum Financial Compensation Possible

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center Encourages Navy Veterans Suffering from Mesothelioma to Call for Access to Experienced Attorneys at The Steinberg Law Group

I said, ‘Mr. Brown, do you mean to tell me you would let them work until they dropped dead?’ He said, ‘Yes. We save a lot of money that way.'”

— Charles H. Roemer, former Johns Manville employee speaking with the CEO

HOUSTON, TX, USA, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mesothelioma Options Help Center is dedicated to providing the best possible legal and medical assistance to Navy veterans stricken with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with a member of The Steinberg Law Group.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their vast experience in handling mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps obtain the best possible financial compensation for clients.

From the 1930s to the 1970s, the Navy used massive quantities of asbestos insulation and fireproofing products in ships and submarines. Often, the worst asbestos exposure conditions in the military occurred on Navy ships and shipyards. To make matters worse, shipyard workers regularly returned home covered in asbestos dust, causing secondary asbestos exposure among loved ones.

Navy occupations with the highest risk of exposure include boiler technician, machinist’s mate, fireman, pipe fitter and fire control technician. Some Navy veterans even wore equipment made of asbestos cloth such as heat-resistant gloves for manning gun turrets. Exposure to asbestos took place at naval facilities and bases in states such as Georgia, Florida, Illinois, Virginia, Maine, Connecticut, California, Washington, Maryland, South Carolina and Hawaii. Even if the asbestos exposure occurred outside of a Navy vet’s home state, The Steinberg Law Group can still get the best financial compensation possible.

For the best possible medical treatment for mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer, call (888) 891-2200 so a member of our team can determine which hospitals and doctors in our vast national network are most convenient for victims of asbestos exposure.

States with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Alaska, New Jersey, Washington, Maine, North Dakota, California, Nevada, Montana, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. For more information about mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer in your area, visit mesotheliomaoptions.com or call (888) 891-2200 now.

Easler Learning Management System

DrugTestingCourses.com, announced today that it will debut its new online platform at the 2019 Annual SAPAA Conference taking place from September 16-19, 2019.

Our platform aims to be a centralized host of quality, up-to-date content that can be shared by industry professionals including program administrators and third party administrators.”

— Andrew Easler

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — DrugTestingCourses.com, the leader in drug and alcohol testing training and education announced today that it will debut its new online platform at the 2019 Annual SAPAA (Substance Abuse Program Administrators Association) Conference taking place from September 16-19, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Philadelphia Center City, 237 S. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA 19107. The platform hosts unique, industry-specific training programs designed for industry leaders and stakeholders.

Andrew Easler, a career educator and co-founder of DrugTestingCourses.com summarizes the motivation for the new platform, “the laws regarding training in the drug and alcohol testing industry provide for very little oversight. Even though the bar for minimum training standards is often set fairly low, there are still too many in-person and online training programs out there that consistently miss the mark. I have trained individuals who have been working in the industry and taking recurrent training consistently for decades–individuals who should, by their experience, be industry gurus–and have been amazed to find that they were never taught critical aspects of a procedure in any of their courses. They have been collecting specimens, conducting breath tests, or making reasonable suspicion determinations incorrectly sometimes for decades and no one along the way corrected them in training. I see a serious issue with that. Our platform aims to be a centralized host of quality, up-to-date content that can be shared by industry professionals including program administrators and third party administrators.”

DrugTestingCourses.com’s learning platform helps respected industry leaders including C-SAPA’s and other industry professionals to integrate learning solutions to their programs. In-house Designated Employer Representatives (DERs) and Drug and Alcohol Program Managers (DAPMs) have the option to easily invite users to the platform, purchase credits, manage their enrollment, monitor progress, and download certificates from one co-branded portal. Similarly, third party administrators will have the same options and the additional option to integrate an e-commerce system, allowing clients to purchase courses and earn commissions directly from their site.

Conference attendees can find DrugTestingCourses.com at booth #33. Attendees will be able to meet with company co-founder James Timothy White and DrugTestingCourses.com instructor Wade Douty who will be giving away prizes and answering questions about the program.

About DrugTestingCourses.com

DrugTestingCourses.com is operated by Easler Education Inc. and provides the training and skills necessary for industry professionals including supervisors, drug and alcohol program managers, collection site personnel and drug testing entrepreneurs to make a positive and lasting impact in the struggle against substance use and abuse in the workplace.

Methanol Institute welcomes new additions to dual-fuel shipping fleet

Total of four product tankers to be launched this year will be IMO2020 and IMO NOx Tier III compliant

The investment in these vessels is a perfect example of companies looking to explore innovative ways to meet global emission requirements for the marine sector”

— Chris Chatterton, Methanol Institute COO

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Methanol Institute has welcomed the launch of two new dual-fuelled tankers capable of operation using clean-burning Methanol.

The 49,000dwt product tankers Mari Couva and Mari Kokako were named at the Hyundai Mipo Dockyard by owners Marinvest and Waterfront Shipping on August 16. A further two vessels will join the Waterfront fleet before the end of the year, owned by NYK and Mitsui/IINO Kaisha and chartered to Waterfront Shipping.

The new tonnage will join the seven existing dual-fuel tankers operated by Waterfront Shipping which have recently marked 50,000 hours of trouble-free operations on Methanol as fuel.

“The launch of the Mari Couva and Mari Kokako is a milestone for the acceptance of Methanol as a safe and reliable marine fuel that can meet IMO2020 regulations and create a pathway to lower carbon shipping,” said Greg Dolan, CEO, The Methanol Institute. “The fact that the new ships feature more efficient engines capable of achieving IMO NOx Tier III compliance with no further modification demonstrates that this is a technology that is moving forward consistently.”

The use of Methanol as fuel requires very little additional investment into the ship since the fuel is a liquid and has handling properties similar to those for conventional distillate fuels. This makes it suitable for both newbuildings and retrofit projects, with minimal impact on cargo space and a simple training process for crew.

Interest in the use of Methanol as marine fuel has continued to grow in recent years, with numerous research projects completed or in progress to investigate the suitability of marine fuel across multiple vessel types.

“The investment in these vessels is a perfect example of companies looking to explore innovative ways to meet global emission requirements for the marine sector, something which continues in vessel demonstration programs in Europe, China and Singapore,” adds Chris Chatterton, Chief Operating officer of the Methanol Institute. “We expect the implementation of the IMO2020 regulations to further increase interest in Methanol as a marine fuel that can deliver cost-effective compliance.”

Key Facts about Methanol as Marine Fuel
• Methanol is a safe, clean and efficient marine fuel, able to help shipowners meet IMO2020 SOx and PM and NOx
Tier III regulations.
• Methanol is cost competitive with other IMO2020 compliant fuels in energy equivalent terms.
• As one of the world’s most widely traded commodities, the shipping and chemical industries have a long history
and ample experience in safely handling Methanol.
• Methanol as fuel removes the need for expensive cryogenic equipment ashore or on the ship and is much less
expensive in terms of newbuilding and conversion costs.
• Methanol has very low combustion-based CO2 emissions. Increasing volumes of renewable Methanol used as marine
fuel create a pathway to compliance with IMO2030 and even 2050 carbon emission regulations.

About the Methanol Institute
First formed in 1989, the Methanol Institute (MI) serves as the trade association for the global methanol industry. MI represents the world’s leading methanol producers, distributors and technology companies from offices around the world. MI provides value to its members by ensuring safe handling of methanol and its derivatives, promoting methanol growth by furthering methanol as an essential chemical commodity and an emerging source of clean and renewable energy, influencing global regulatory and public policy initiatives that impact the methanol industry.

LeadsForward Expands into Offering Motivated Solar Companies Live Leads & Booked Appointments

Solar Lead Generation Company

Exclusive Solar Leads

The dedicated professionals from LeadsForward are excited to team up with hungry solar companies to get more live leads and grow businesses around the country.

We strive to provide exclusive, inbound leads for hungry to grow businesses. For solar companies, this is a hot commodity, because of their usual experiences with recycled, cold leads.”

— Devon Eddy

PROVIDENCE, RHODE ISLAND, UNITED STATES, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With solar installations for homes and businesses becoming more and more sought out, the industry is turning into one that's more competitive than what it used to be. The dedicated experts from LeadsForward are ready to work with solar contractors that are enthusiastic about expanding their companies with their new exclusive solar lead generation capabilities.

LeadsForward is a lead generation company that is located in Rhode Island with team members working together locally and around the globe. They complete collective assignments to produce high-quality, inbound, organic, live leads for solar companies in the area and throughout the United States. Since starting the business back in 2013, Cheif Executive Officer Trevor Eddy and Chief Operating Officer Devon Eddy have worked diligently to come up with a formula that has continued to provide each client with leads that turn into paying customers.

As technology continues to grow and evolve, it became apparent to the LeadsForward team how essential a quality website is to all businesses in every industry. Gone are the days when people would pull out a phonebook to find a contractor and a phone number to call to complete a job they need to be done. Today, everything is achieved through the use of the internet, and more importantly, smartphones. When individuals need a specific product or service, they turn to the devices in their hands and do a quick search. The first companies that show up are the ones that get the most business. People generally trust the companies that are found at the top. It's human nature to think that the ones listed first are the most popular and therefore the most trusted. The focus quickly turned into finding out the best method to get every contractor LeadsForward works with to the top of that list. After beginning operations, unitedly they have generated over 10,000 solar leads, $1.5 million in revenue, and have satisfied over 2,000 customers around the United States.

One of the up-and-coming industries they decided to spotlight recently is getting solar leads to a local company in Rhode Island. Now that they've discovered how successful the partnership was working with their new client, they've decided to expand those same offerings to other solar companies all around the country. Instead of trying to obtain new clients through mass emails that likely go into junk folders, making cold calls, or even going door-to-door, the group at LeadsForward takes care of everything. There is no need to put in any work to find customers when the customers find what they want after discovering a business following a quick search on their phones or personal computers.

What's unique to LeadsForward clients that can't be found with other lead generation companies is the opportunity to work together to get organic, natural, live leads. They don't develop websites that aren't going to perform because that's a waste of time and resources for everyone that's involved. The LeadsForward team doesn't work solely to increase their own revenue. They want every solar company that they are working with to see results. The only way to get results is by being seen. The only way to be noticed is to become a solar company that stands out above the rest of the competition by being listed first. Instead of paying for leads or getting recycled leads that other solar companies have already had access to, they provide real-time live leads. LeadsForward clients typically see leads that start within just a day or two after the new site gets launched.

Another highlight coming from LeadsForward for every solar company is a long-standing relationship. They have a complete grasp on how advanced solar technologies are, and how quickly they can change. The team doesn't only set up complete websites with all the information potential leads want to see before turning into live customers. They continue to work on it to ensure it's up-to-date and still performing at an optimum level. Even after the site is up and in the number one spot on Google and other search engines, the enthusiastic professionals behind the scenes at LeadsForward don't quit. They continue to update and make any necessary improvements to ensure that the company stays in the leading position. It's the only way that's proven to continue to get results over an extended period.

Clients that have worked with LeadsForward in the past have nothing but positive things to say about working with this particular lead generation company. Solar installation contractors don't have the time or resources to worry about the technical side of SEO, web design, email marketing, online advertising, and social media. With their passion and drive for wanting to help people, LeadsForward adds value to turning leads into revenue, not just focusing on getting a bigger following online.

For all solar companies that are looking for a natural, healthy, organic approach to getting highly ranked, LeadsForward has the tools, methods, and resources required to make it happen. They aren't going to collect a monthly retainer to get you leads that go nowhere. The team is always open and available for communication and willing to go the extra mile to get the results that other lead generation companies just can't compete with.

For more information, visit their website leadsforward.com or email sales@leadsforward.com.

About LeadsForward

LeadsForward is a local SEO agency with over 10 years of experience in working with solar companies and other motivated contractors to get high-quality leads that transform into paying customers. They are passionate about giving their clients a 100% ROI in 12 months or less, proving that they are committed. LeadsForward is a unique local SEO company because they don't ask for any money other than a small startup fee.

Fast Company Honoree, Electro Scan Inc., A World’s Most Innovative Company

Increased Demand for Trenchless Pipe Rehabilitation Prompts Cities & Consulting Engineers to Locate & Quantify Pinhole Leaks to Determine Liner Watertightness

Electro Scan & Hansen Analytics have the ability to identify the major issues, where the money needs to be spent, and how to get the best return on investment for ratepayers.”

— Mark McIntire, President, McIntire Management Group

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Electro Scan Inc. announced today that it has released new software enhancements to locate and measure pinhole leaks in Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) and other popular trenchless rehabilitation solutions.

The new release is available immediately and applies to all forms of CIPP liners, including Thermal (hot water), Steam, Ultraviolet, and Light-Emitting Diode (LED) cured liners.

Electro Scan's new software release is available for both imperial and metric customers, licensed to access the company's Critical Sewers® cloud application, with leaks quantified in either Gallons per Minute or Liters per Second.

"Electro Scan and Hansen Analytics have the ability to identify the major issues, where the money needs to be spent, and how to get the best return on investment for ratepayers," stated Mark McIntire, President, McIntire Management Group.

"Traditional pipe inspection methods have fallen short of testing and certifying new and rehabilitated pipes as watertight," stated Chuck Hansen, Chairman, Electro Scan Inc.

"We are pleased with the international acceptance of our patented Focused Electrode Leak Location (FELL) technology to deliver unbiased, unambiguous, and repeatable results to fix our crumbling infrastructure," stated Hansen.

Evaluating CIPP liners since 2014 when it completed an assessment for James City Service Authority, Virginia, Electro Scan has gone on to complete over a thousand CIPP evaluations, including review of over 30 CIPP suppliers and contractors.

Working with its UK partner on a CIPP research project for German-based IKT made Electro Scan management realize the importance of quantify leaks, including pinholes.

Recommended CIPP liner repair, replacement, or removal alternatives can be quite different given the location, frequency, and watertightness of all defects that leak.

It is also important to locate liner defects as soon as possible after installation and curing, while crews are still mobilized in the field.

“Traditional inspection methods including Acoustic and Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) inspection are unable to identify or measure leaks," stated Mike App, Vice President, Electro Scan Inc.

"Instead, FELL's machine-intelligent solution can bring needed accuracy and simplified reporting without the need for third-party data interpretation to determine when a liner is watertight," stated App.

Electro Scan Inc. offers the only technology that is in compliance with ASTM F2550 and AWWA M77 standards for testing the watertightness of CIPP liners.

It is estimated that North American investor-owned and municipal utilities spend over $5 billion annually on trenchless rehabilitation products and services.

Recently, Electro Scan announced a 30-mile condition assessment project for Hillsborough County, Florida, and a 22-mile condition assessment project for the City of Kansas City, Missouri's Smart Sewer program.

While both the Hillsborough County and Kansas City projects are designed to evaluate existing sewer mains, prior to rehabilitation, a large number of previously lined CIPP will also be evaluated for watertightness.

In addition to designing and marketing equipment that utilities can purchase and add to existing CCTV trucks or vans, Electro Scan also licenses its patented FELL technology to authorized contractors offered on a Technology-as-a-Service (TaaS) basis.

Once FELL surveys are completed, data can be transmitted, stored, and processed in its proprietary Critical Sewers® cloud application, independently managed by Hansen Analytics LLC, with licensing available on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis.

Separately, Hansen Analytics LLC, allows customers to upload all their pipeline condition assessment data, including but not limited to Acoustic, CCTV, Dye Test, Laser, Pressure Testing, Smoke Testing, and Sonar data that can easily be ported to Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Hydraulic Models, and Management Dashboards.

Electro Scan's new software release also locates and measures small defects in plastic pipe, including High Density Polyethylene, Polyvinyl Chloride, Polyethylene, and other plastic pipes.

FELL testing is recommended to certify both gravity and pressurized pipelines for watertightness.

ABOUT ELECTRO SCAN INC.
Founded in 2011, the company designs, markets, and supports machine-intelligent products & services for pipe condition assessment, environmental compliance monitoring, and measuring rehabilitation effectiveness. In 2019, the company was named by BlueTech Research as a ’Top 15 Water Technologies to Watch’; Fast Company’s ‘World’s Most Innovative Companies’; and, e.Republic Government Technology ‘GovTech100.’

Animal Wellness Applauds Reps. Chellie Pingree and Jared Golden for Working to Protect Iconic American Horses

Priscilla Presley, U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Holly Gann, and Marty Irby on Capitol Hill Discussing the PAST Act

I am deeply grateful to Congresswoman Chellie Pingree and Congressman Jared Golden for their unwavering support for the humane treatment of walking horses and the passage of the PAST Act.”

— Gina Garey, Maine State Director at Animal Wellness Action

AUGUSTA , MAINE, USA, August 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. Both U.S. Reps. Chellie Pingree and Jared Golden were cosponsors of the measure and voted in support of the bill.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades.

U.S. Senators Susan Collins, and Angus King are both cosponsors of the Senate companion bill on, S. 1007, led by the senior U.S. Senator from Idaho, Republican Mike Crapo, that mirrors the House passed legislation.

"I am deeply grateful to Congresswoman Chellie Pingree and Congressman Jared Golden for their unwavering support for the humane treatment of walking horses and the passage of the PAST Act,” said Gina Garey, Maine State Director at Animal Wellness Action. “This vote was long overdue, and their support helped to win the day for these iconic horses. I call on the Senate to take swift action on the bill and ask that Senator Collins and Senator King urge leadership to schedule a vote as soon as they return from recess. It’s finally time to free these horses from any further pain and suffering.”

“Timing is ripe, and the majority of Americans want to see Congress work to protect these iconic American horses upon whose backs our country was built upon,” said Animal Wellness Advocate Priscilla Presley. “U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should swiftly schedule a vote on the PAST Act, and execute the will of the American people, and I call on him to do so!”

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported by the American Quarter Horse Association, Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, and Maine Veterinary Medical Association.

The PAST Act has been blocked for years by a handful of well-placed lawmakers, but a new House rule triggering consideration of any measure that attracts 290 or more cosponsors brought the issue to the floor. PAST attracted 308 cosponsors, and was led by U.S. Reps. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Ted Yoho (R-FL), cochairs of the Congressional Veterinary Medicine Caucus, along with Reps. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Ron Estes (R-KS), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Chris Collins (R-NY). The Senate companion has garnered 43 cosponsors.
