Letter To The Editor: LAHA Expresses Gratitude

first_img“Coach Gary and I gave the kids the biggest and most important compliment we have given out to anyone so far … at the end of the last session I called the kids in and I told them that they were the absolute BEST behaved group that we have worked with,” Hull said. “The amount of respect they showed us was really something you guys should be proud of. This not only comes from the parents, but this is also massive compliment to you guys on the culture you set in the program. We were extremely impressed and thrilled with these kids. I hope you share this note with the parents and kids because they deserve it. You guys have done a mighty job in leading them.” Hull commended the Los Alamos players. We had 33 skaters participate in eight hours of this instruction by Kyle Hull and Gary TenEyck from Colorado Springs, It was a huge success, at least, by comments from the parents.  Thank you to our sponsors! The Los Alamos Hockey Association held its first Hull Hockey Camp for Power Skating and Other Skating Techniques Nov. 22-24 at the Los Alamos County Ice Rink.  Sponsors: Title Sponsor – The Elks ClubElite Sponsor – Century Bank & TrustElite Sponsor – New Mexico Bank & TrustStandard Sponsor – Posada Dental Works By Los Alamos Hockey AssociationBoard of Directors We want to thank the rink staff. Mike Lipiatt is the manager and doing a super job trying to keep the ice going for us. His staff are also doing a great job: We, the Board of Directors, wanted to keep the price low since it was in our own rink. Some of these camps run as much as $300 and our members must drive to Colorado and spend a lot of money. However, to cover all costs, it was so important that we had sponsors to help defray the extra costs. We have some of the best sponsors.  We had a title sponsor in the Elks Service Club. They raised monies for us by holding two pasta dinners (one in September, picture in the Los Alamos Daily Post (link) where they donated all funds after taking out only the cost of the food, and will hold one during the 2nd Nuclear Shootout with NM Lobos and three other college teams, Jan. 10-12, 2020.) They were the title sponsor based upon their donations. However, we could not have met our objective without three other sponsors.

Home working – the antidote to swine flu?

first_imgDoes it have to take a pandemic or a disaster to make more of home working? Swine flu is a scary thing. No one wants to take any chances with it and some employers are imposing an unofficial quarantine on employees who have recently returned from Mexico. Lack of productivity in these hard times is unpalatable too, so arrangements are being made for such employees to work from home, where they are fit to do so. Not so long ago this would entail files and dictation tapes being shuttled backwards and forwards, and with many firms this may still be the case. But now that remote connections to servers are easy to set up, good broadband speeds abound and digital dictation can even be sent via smart phones, home workers can be ‘virtually’ in the office. Some law firms are now carrying a lot of expensive empty office space following recession-fuelled redundancies. When work picks up, should they fill the space again? Or maybe offload it at the next break period in their lease and employ more staff on work from home contracts? Andrew Woolley has pioneered the virtual office. From working at home out of economic necessity when he first set up his own practice, he realised he could employ others on a similar basis when he started to expand. He now has a wide geographical reach without having to maintain buildings in many locations around the country. His colleagues like the model – time is not wasted travelling to and from an office, and clients are happy to meet at serviced offices, hotel lobbies, even motorway service stations. They are especially happy when they realise that this arrangement supports manageable fixed fees rather than open ended hourly rates. This way of working is not for everyone, sure. Some like the company of others in the workplace and the synergy that this can create should not be underestimated. There is no reason though why regular get-togethers cannot be arranged, while working day to day without the distractions of office politics. They say that when America sneezes everyone catches a cold; this time, sadly it’s happening literally. One of the long-term remedies, in the workplace at least, could come in the shape of more virtual working.last_img read more

Jumbo overcomes draft and outreach issues

first_imgFairlane collected the cargo from the port of Dalian, China, with the shiploader being lifted onboard the vessel using Jumbo’s fork lift method – two 24 m length beams, possessing a combined lifting capacity of up to 1,600 tonnes, which were collected from storage in Singapore on route to China.A vessel with shallow draft capabilities was required since water depth at the port of loading would at no time exceed 5.6 m, and this did not present a problem, says Jumbo.Having loaded the vessel, the voyage towards Palua began. Withcargo protruding on either side of the ship, the most direct route through the Panama Canal was not possible and an alternative route via the Cape of Good Hope had to be arranged instead.Delivery of the shiploader was only possible within the Venezuelan rainy season (between June and September) because the rainfall during this period raises the water level sufficiently – to around 9 m – to allow access to the quayside.The cargo then needed to be discharged over a pre-existing conveyor belt structure and the Fairlane’s capacity to lift heavy loads at a considerable outreach helped to ensure that the discharge was successfully completed on the August 25.Present at the unveiling of the shiploader, the Venezuelan minister of industries, Ricardo Menendez, declared that the installation of this equipment would have a major impact on port activity, improving performance and enabling the handling of up to 7.5 million tonnes of minerals per year – a 60 percent improvement on pre-existing levels. www.jumbomaritime.nllast_img read more

First flight from Puerto Rico, post-Hurricane Maria, touches down in Orlando

first_imgFirst flight from Puerto Rico, post-Hurricane Maria, touches down in Orlando ORLANDO, Fla. (WKMG) There were hugs and tears. A feeling of family lingered in the air. And there was a huge sense of relief for some relatives to see their mother, finally, after days of lost contact during and in the wake of Hurricane Maria.“It’s too much emotion going on right now,” Suhaill Barbosa said. “It’s really hard. We still have family we can’t contact yet.”Added Giselle Marrero, “It’s very devastating. It’s not easy. It cannot be explained by a picture. You have to be over there to see how Puerto Rico is right now.”Spirit Airlines Flight 892 was supposed to arrive just after 5 p.m., but it was delayed by about three hours. This was the first incoming flight from Puerto Rico to Orlando after the storm. Many speculated that the flight got postponed due to the horrible conditions on the island.“They got no power,” one passenger said Friday. “Trees have no leaves. There’s no gas.”Bethzaida Garcia said she left Puerto Rico just days before Maria hit, and she felt guilty leaving her parents behind. On Friday night, she was finally about to hug her mother.“I wish that everybody can feel the same thing, because I know my friends — everybody is waiting the same thing, to hug their parents,” Garcia said.But not everyone has been able to learn if his or her family survived.A woman holding up a Puerto Rican flag stood in front of the gate, hoping someone on the flight knew something about her 82-year-old mother.“She (decided) to go to nowhere,” the woman said. “She decided to stay in the house. I’m here hoping someone come from the area I come, and let me know if they know her or if somebody(knows) about her.”Some passengers said they’ll be staying with family in Orlando until the situation in Puerto Rico improves.
