[AlgEternal's CEO] David [Ramjohn] has managed to successfully develop and launch two extremely effective algae-based products and demonstrate a business model for the algae industry that really works”

— Dr. Venkatesh Balan

LA GRANGE, TX, US, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — AlgEternal Technologies, LLC, announced today that their CEO, David Ramjohn, has been appointed to the Industry Advisory Board (IAB)—Biotechnology, in the College of Technology of the University of Houston (UH). According to the UH website, their Boards of Advisors comprise: “Business, community and technical leaders from the Houston area and across the United States…” who “…generously provide free advice and guidance for the various programs within the College of Technology. These allow programs in the College of Technology to stay closely allied with the real needs of the business and technical communities that they serve.” Dean of the UH College of Technology, Dr. Anthony P. “Tony” Ambler, hosted a reception and dinner on April 9, 2019 for Industry Advisory Board (IAB) members, in recognition of the importance he places on the collaboration between the UH and the private sector.

AlgEternal entered into a Non-Disclosure Agreement with the UH in November 2018 and discussions have been ongoing since then between Ramjohn and Dr, Venkatesh Balan, Assistant Professor, Biotechnology, and Dr. Kamran Alba, Assistant Professor, Mechanical Engineering Technology, both of the UH College of Engineering Technology, on collaborative applied research in algae biotechnology. In March 2019, Dr. Balan invited Ramjohn to consider sitting on the Industry Advisory Board—Biotechnology as an expert in the algae industry to assist the UH develop programs that meet the needs of the industry in the future.

“AlgEternal views education as critical to the success of the algae industry,” says Ramjohn; “I am happy to contribute to the development of programs that prepare the next generation of scientists and workers in this emerging industry with enormous potential to impact positively on the U.S. and Global economies.” According to Ramjohn, as a businessperson, he has to consider the future of AlgEternal and the entire industry in terms of sources of trained personnel. AlgEternal intends to expand and scale commercially, which will require additional team members. “Collaborating with the University of Houston and Drs. Balan and Alba means that we remain at the cutting edge of applied research,” says Ramjohn; “microalgae represent a largely unexplored bio-renewable resource with sustainable economic applications in food, feed, agriculture, nutraceuticals, cosmetics, natural skin care, biomaterials, and ecosystem services such as wastewater treatment and carbon capture and use.”

At the UH, Dr. Balan has established the 'Protein and Carbohydrate Research Laboratory (PCRL)' that uses multidisciplinary approaches including chemistry, biology and engineering to produce bio-molecules useful for medicinal and industrial applications. His research projects are focused on the following areas: Producing biochemicals using genetic engineering platform; Peptide expression systems to produce bio-molecules useful for biomedical and other biotechnology applications; Use of complex carbohydrates to develop industrial enzymes; and Microbial processing to produce food and nutritional products. “Having visited AlgEternal’s facilities in La Grange, and met with their CEO, I have no doubt that his unique combination of science and business expertise will be a great asset to the IAB and the algae industry as a whole,” said Balan; “David has managed to successfully develop and launch two extremely effective algae-based products and demonstrate a business model for the algae industry that really works.”

Dr. Alba’s research interests include: Experimental, Computational & Analytical Fluid Dynamics; Complex Non-Newtonian Fluid Flows; Suspensions, Multiphase, Displacements & Buoyant Flows; Thin-Film Flow Modelling & Stability Analysis; and Coating & Co-Extrusion Flows. Together with Dr. Balan and one of their students, Nima Mirzaeian, they have developed an Adjustable Particle Separator System (Patent Pending) that has applications in microalgae harvesting. “AlgEternal is the perfect industry partner for us to do field testing at commercial scale of our new technology,” says Dr. Alba; “the scale at which AlgEternal, under their CEO’s leadership, has been able to produce microalgae in vertical photobioreactors, is one that I have not seen in Texas before.” Ramjohn is now working with the UH to develop a program for internships for graduate students with AlgEternal, a move he believes is the natural progression to encourage and support students to enter the algae industry.

AlgEternal’s CEO recognizes the role the company must play in securing the future of the emerging algae industry and remains committed to making useful contributions to facilitating the growth and success of the industry. “The U.S. has spent an enormous amount of public funds supporting decades of algae research and development but is yet to reap any of the significant economic, environmental, or social benefits that this industry can provide,” said Ramjohn; “the algae industry no longer has a science or technology problem; it has a business problem, and through partnerships such as with the UH and participation in Industry Advisory Boards, AlgEternal intends to join the elite few companies operating in the U.S. that demonstrate the algae business solutions that make dollars and sense.”

Dog Travels 2500 Miles to Forever Home

SPOKANE, WA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — His background was tragic. An adult, orange colored, intact male, Pit, that hardly had the strength to stand. He was found in an abandoned house near Baton Rouge, LA., with no food or water. He was so close to death he was covered with hundreds of flies that were already starting to consume him. The rescue team rushed him to their veterinarian who recommended putting him down. Instead, they opted to give him a chance and started an IV. This adult Pit weighed 19 pounds.

That was in August 2018. Today, the 69-lb. gentle dog named Lazaruff ( a word-play on Lazarus, the Biblical character raised from the dead ), is the picture of health and is embarking this Easter holiday with his rescuers Dr. Marty Becker and his wife, Teresa Becker, as they travel more than 2,500 miles from Lazaruff’s Louisiana birthplace to Sandpoint, Idaho, to be closer to the Beckers.

You can follow their journey on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/DrMartyBecker/

Dog and humans met at the St. Landy Parish Animal Control near Opelousas, LA, where the Beckers had traveled from Idaho to be part of an American Humane’s event of veterinary healthcare professionals taking part in a massive shelter project. Becker, a board member of American Humane, is best known for his books on pets and animal care, and as the founder of the Fear Free initiative. https://fearfreehappyhomes.com

“After eight hours of non-stop work, in walked, no, wobbled, a skeletal dog, a Pitbull that had been locked in an abandoned home with no food or water and when first rescued as an adult dog (estimated to be three years old) only weighed 19-pounds. He was horrifically emaciated, dehydrated, and near death. Not only were literally thousands of flies (plus fleas and ticks) consuming him from the outside, consuming him from the inside were four kinds of worms and an untold number of immature and adult heartworms,” Becker remembers.

“Teresa and I kneeled and spoke words of love and blessing to him. I sprayed a heart shape onto the palm of my hand with Easy Cheese Cheddar & Bacon and this precious boy came over to lick it off of my hand with his bone of a tail whipping back and forth with such vigor and that it literally lifted alternating back feet off of the ground. I cried. Teresa cried. The room cried. I looked at the dog, and then looked at Teresa. She looked at the dog, and then looked at me. We nodded in agreement. We were going to do whatever it took to try and bring this dog back from eminent death. I think we gave him through tears, the first bath he'd ever had, and his name. Lazaruff,” Becker says.

That friendship between man and beast will accumulate in a happy ending this Easter weekend. By April 22, Lazaruff should be settling down with a hand-selected foster family care as he makes the transition from shelter life to home life. The Beckers plan on visiting him every day.

Dr. Paul J. Pearce of Nova Biologicals to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

PaulPearceNEW1

PaulPearceNEW2 Lab

CONROE, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Every day a new threat to your health and safety is announced in the media–like the recall of turkey products tainted by salmonella, a new strain of antibiotic resistant bacteria, E. coli in your lettuce or lead in your water. Thanks to scientist Paul Pearce, PhD, and his knowledge and experience in the laboratory sciences, ,we can all sleep more comfortably at night.

That’s because this exceptional guest, President and founder of Texas-based Nova Biologicals had the skills and foresight to address, in 1993, the vast need for public drinking water testing and to keep on extending the company’s range of laboratory testing services. From safeguarding the sterility of medical supplies…to ensuring new pharmaceuticals pass FDA and QA requirements…to examining food manufacturing facilities and testing food products, Nova Biologicals testing services make a crucial difference. And it’s not just a positive or negative result that makes the impact, it’s the way Nova Biologicals supports and consults with clients regarding the outcomes.

In moving ahead, Dr. Pearce and his company did not lose sight of their core capacity to test water for contaminants and chemicals—such as chlorine, lead, petrochemical manufacturing remnants, mercury, nitrates, and pesticides. Examining our water supply for substances that can trigger disease in humans has been a mission since that first year, when Nova Biological laboratories became specially certified, and tested about 50 water samples in July 1993. Now, in 2019, statistics reflect that Nova tests about 11,000 samples each month.

His company’s success can be attributed to many things including Dr. Pearce’s “entrepreneurial gene,” a no-holds-barred approach to quality, and a team of scientists who are highly-qualified, loyal and totally committed to their work. They check out anything that might have a microbial component which could include our air and soil, as well as the medical equipment used by doctors and hospitals and the stem cell preparations that represent the latest therapeutic miracle. They can even help a hospital identify potential contamination risks and meet the strictest Quality Assurance risk and safety regulations as required by The Joint Commission and Federal regulatory authorities.

Dr. Paul Pearce will be featured in a 12-part series on CUTV News Radio and each episode will explore a different aspect of how Nova Biologicals and its scientists identify the presence of microorganisms and chemicals. In the first installment, we are going to discuss the fastest, most accurate and precisely controlled laboratory testing capabilities for Legionella, a dangerous pathogen associated with Legionnaire’s disease, and how the test can be used by hospitals and environmental agencies to detect and reduce the threat of Legionnaire’s disease.

Dr. Pearce will go on to discuss water contamination and the health effects of common bacterial contaminants and chemicals in terms anyone can understand. Listen to this informative and significant series to learn about the science and personal health significance of bacteria, chemicals, allergens and toxins that may be in your water, food, cosmetics, and personal health care products and equipment.

CUTV News Radio will feature Paul Pearce of Nova Biologicals in interviews on Tuesdays at 1:00pm EDT , on April 23rd and May 7th with Doug Llewelyn, and April 30th and May 14th with Jim Masters.

Listen to the shows on BlogTalkRadio

If you have questions for our guest, please call (347)996-3369

Mercure Hotel Suites and Apartments – Dubai Barsha Heights: Growing a Sustainability Culture

Mercure Hotel Suites and Apartments - Dubai Barsha Heights

Green Globe recertified the Mercure Hotel Suites and Apartments -Dubai Barsha Heights in February with the hotel achieving an outstanding score of 98%.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 19, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —
Green Globe recertified the Mercure Hotel Suites and Apartments -Dubai Barsha Heights in February with the hotel achieving an outstanding score of 98%.

Mr. Naseer Thodi, General Manager at the hotel has been the driving force behind the attainment of Green Globe Certification for four consecutive years.

”I am very proud of what we, as a team, have achieved through implementing our sustainable initiatives. Our journey of sustainability has faced various challenges along the way, however, being a part of the Accor group has facilitated the development of a growing sustainability culture amongst management and team members, ”said Mr Thodi.

The hotel has been recognized for its comprehensive waste reduction strategies and its CSR initiatives include broad based social and environmental projects.

Star of Waste Management Award

The Dubai Municipality awarded the Star of Waste Management to the hotel for its waste reduction measures after a detailed inspection of best practices at the property was completed. Each department devises individual waste saving initiatives that are carried out by team members. The Housekeeping team manages a linen reuse program that saves water and electricity, reduces overall running costs and minimizes environmental impacts. In collaboration with Diversy, used soap remnants are collected and donated to the Soap for Hope Program thereby decreasing waste generation at the property. Retired linen and clothes are collected through charity drives and regularly donated to several welfare organizations such as the Beit Alkhair Society, Dubai Cares and Red Crescent. While the Food and Beverage team monitor wastage from kitchens and devised measures to limit food waste where possible. Currently, jam is provided in reusable glassware to avoid the usage of large quantities of plastic packaging.

Native Ghaf Trees

Mercure team has always spearheaded CSR activities in the region to support environmental protection. The hotel’s Green Team actively participates in all green activities conducted by the Emirates Environmental Group. In 2018, the Kitchen Stewarding Team collected a total of 870 kilograms of metal cans. In return Mercure Hotel Suites and Apartments – Dubai Barsha Heights was awarded with three Ghaf tree saplings to plant. The Ghaf tree is the native plant of UAE. The tree plantation event took place on 18th December 2018 in Minae, South Ras Al Khaimah (Skheibar Area). The root systems of Ghaf trees penetrate deeply into the soil for more than 30 meters allowing it to draw water up for survival even in the hottest weather conditions. The trees also prevent soil erosion in dessert regions.

Clean Up The World Campaign

Mercure Hotel Suites & Apartments participated in the Clean up the World campaign organized by the Dubai Municipality that took place at the Jebal Ali Trojan camp (a desert area) in Dubai. Various organizations supported the cleaning up of the deserts and the removal of plastics and other waste which will improve the environment for indigenous dessert wildlife.

“We received a certificate of appreciation from the Dubai Government for participating in the campaigns and for our efforts in protecting the environment. We are all pleased that we can assist in this manner,” concluded Mr Thodi.

ADOMANI® is helping School Districts “practice what they preach” in class with all-electric propulsion school buses

Students with bus

Adomani Electric Drive System

School Bus Electrification: A lesson in efficient transportation

Adomani Electric (NASDAQ:ADOM)

Transportation contributes to nearly 40 percent of California’s greenhouse gas emissions and almost 80 percent of its air pollution.”

— Lisa Woon, SCE’s principal manager of Corporate Philanthropy

REDWOOD CITY, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In school, students learn about the environment and the effects of pollution on their world. They take classes that explain today’s challenges with green house gasses and climate change while attending recycling drives on the weekend. But their transit to school and field trips are in stark contrast to their teachings – arriving at their destination in poorly tuned vehicles that make them part of the environmental problem, not the solution.
Today, a number of school districts around the country have begun converting these exhaust emitting diesel-powered school busses to all-electric propulsion. ADOMANI’s electrification drive system eliminates harmful exhaust emissions, removes the need to purchase expensive diesel fuel and reduces vehicle maintenance costs due to fewer moving components and fluid changes.
Funding for these conversions comes in many forms, the Fontana Unified School District, one of 11 school districts in Southern California Edison’s (SCE) service territory, which recently received funding for ADOMANI school bus electrification program from the South Coast Air Quality Management District and the California Air Resources Board. The result: these school districts are practicing what they preach in the classroom.
ADOMANI's electrification system replaces the inefficient internal combustion engine with clean electric power while retaining key vehicle elements within the school bus including the transmission, drivetrain and other accessory drives that power electrical, comfort and safety systems. On a typical school day, the buses travel about 100 miles taking students from home to school and back, as well as on field trips. ADOMANI electrified buses can drive up to 120 miles per charge. The schools have also been provided with technical assistance and guidance to support the rollout of the buses and the installation of charging stations by CALSTART, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing the clean transportation industry

Lilia Lopez, who has two children at Beech Elementary, added, “We live in such a beautiful city, but we have such bad air quality. So, it’s really good that the school district decided to get electric buses. It really helps the environment and there are a lot of kids who have asthma. It helps with their health and the air quality.”
“We believe it is important to provide our California schoolchildren with the cleanest buses possible, as soon as possible,” said Kevin Leong, program manager at CALSTART. Edison International, parent company of SCE, provided a $75,000 grant to CALSTART for the program. The grant was instrumental in the completion of the charging infrastructure at the schools’ transit yard sites. As part of the grant, CALSTART helped and supported the school districts by developing a tool kit that made it easier to roll out the buses.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District, through its Carl Moyer Program, provided $8.8 million to purchase 33 battery electric, zero-emission buses and charging infrastructure for 16 public school districts and two charter schools in Southern California. The schools also received additional funding through the California Air Resources Board’s Hybrid and Zero Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project. These funds further offset the cost of buying the electric buses.
“At Edison International and SCE, we are committed to helping the communities we serve. Transportation contributes to nearly 40 percent of California’s greenhouse gas emissions and almost 80 percent of its air pollution. So it’s important for us to support programs, such as CALSTART’s. It will reduce our dependence on fossil fuels,” said Lisa Woon, SCE’s principal manager of Corporate Philanthropy. “The schools and children that will benefit from this grant are located in areas with some of the worst air quality in the nation.”
About ADOMANI®
ADOMANI, Inc. is a provider of zero-emission all-electric and hybrid drivetrain systems for integration into new school buses and medium to heavy-duty commercial fleet vehicles, as well as re-power conversion kits for the replacement of drivetrain systems in combustion-powered vehicles.

Plant City Bike Fest Draws Yellow Tent of Volunteer Ministers

VMs at Plant City Bike Fest

Judy Fagerman, Scientology Volunteer Minister Tampa Coordinator with visitor to the Plant City Bike Fest on April 6th.

Making hundreds of thousands of Volunteer Ministers who go out into the world and tend to the needs of people as they find them is the purpose of this program.”

— L. Ron Hubbard

PLANT CITY, FLORIDA, USA, April 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On April 6th, the Scientology Volunteer Ministers (VMs) of Tampa pitched their yellow tent with motto – “Something Can be Done About it” – at Plant City’s Bike Fest in downtown Union Station. Bike Fest is a monthly event drawing hundreds of custom motorcycles and bikers as well as entertainment and vendors for a family-friendly afternoon in Plant City’s downtown.

The Scientology Volunteer Ministers not only answered questions about their program but also offered their unique “Assists” to those experiencing discomfort or stress. A Scientology Assist deals exclusively with spiritual and mental trauma and is not a replacement to medical treatment.

“When we set up our tents, we always find some people who’ve been suffering for a long time with pain and mental distress and sometimes they cannot get relief,” says Judy Fagerman, Tampa VM Coordinator. “Through ‘Assists’ we demonstrate that something can be done , and we teach them exactly what that is. More importantly we teach them that they can learn to help others.”

At the Bike Fest, volunteers offered the “Assists” to anyone who asked, and invited them to sign up for a free online course so they can learn to use Assists to help others.

The Volunteer Ministers offer the free classes at their VM Florida headquarters ,101 N. Fort Harrison Avenue in downtown Clearwater, or online at www.volunteerministers.org. Classes cover any of the 19 chapters of L. Ron Hubbard’s The Scientology Handbook. The chapters contain practical knowledge on how to solve problems regarding drugs, study, relationships, trust and more. For more information call 727-467-6965.

L. Ron Hubbard described the purpose of the Volunteer Minister program as: "Making hundreds of thousands of Volunteer Ministers who go out into the world and tend to the needs of people as they find them is the purpose of this program."

Scientology Volunteer Ministers:

The Volunteer Minister (VM) program was launched more than thirty years ago, in response to an appeal by Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard. Noting a tremendous downturn in the level of ethics and morality in society, and a consequent increase in drugs and crime, Mr. Hubbard wrote, “If one does not like the crime, cruelty, injustice and violence of this society, he can do something about it. He can become a VOLUNTEER MINISTER and help civilize it, bring it conscience and kindness and love and freedom from travail by instilling into it trust, decency, honesty and tolerance.”

Accordingly, in addition to traveling to wherever disaster strikes, Volunteer Ministers work with public servants in their own communities, helping to improve conditions right at home. Their information and training centers are bright yellow tents open to the public at weekend events and fairs, where anyone may enroll on a course or seminar.

[W]e must act fast to turn around the downward spiral of environmental destruction by broadly educating our neighbors and taking action ourselves to directly clean up our communities.”

— Tanja Cranton, ED of TWTH Association of Tampa Bay

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, US, April 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — St. Petersburg’s historic Williams Park, 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning of April 13th, 2019 saw the green canopy The Way to Happiness tent going up among dozens of groups at the Third Annual Earth Day Celebration, a day designated for promoting care of the environment, observed in over 192 countries and celebrated by billions.

At Williams Park, hundreds of environmentalists, Earth lovers and the curious toured booths promoting care of the ocean and animals; industries selling products such as solar panels to reduce the carbon footprint; holistic treatments; and of course, food, organic and otherwise.

The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay focused its message on changing attitudes. They distributed over 600 of L. Ron Hubbard’s The Way to Happiness booklets, in which one precept to happiness advises: “Safeguard and Improve the Environment.” In that 1981 booklet, L Ron Hubbard wrote, “Cut down too many forests, foul too many rivers and seas, mess up the atmosphere and we have had it. The surface temperature can go roasting hot, the rain can turn to sulfuric acid. All living things could die.”

According to Keep America Beautiful, litter is another environmental problem and it’s costly; $11.5 billion are spent every year to clean up litter in the USA.

Tanja Cranton, Executive Director of The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay, said, “Together we can save the planet but we must act fast to turn around the downward spiral of environmental destruction by broadly educating our neighbors and taking action ourselves to directly clean up our communities.”

The Way to Happiness is one of nine humanitarian outreach programs sponsored by the Church of Scientology (http://www.scientology.tv). The Way to Happiness Association Tampa Bay has been carrying out monthly community clean-ups in Clearwater and is holding the next cleanup on April 20th in Clearwater’s Gateway neighborhood.

For more information on the program or to join in the cleanup projects, please contact The Way to Happiness Community Center on 33 N. Fort Harrison Ave, Clearwater FL 33755, open daily from 10am – 10pm or call: (727) 467 6961.
