CSD Director Cory StyronBy KIRSTEN LASKEYLos Alamos Daily Postkirsten@ladailypost.comWhen it comes to parks and recreational services, Cory Styron offers a wealth of experience and expertise and he’s bringing these assets to Los Alamos County as its new Community Services Department (CSD) director.Assistant to the County Manager Linda Matterson has been serving as the interim head of the CSD until Styron took over on Monday. Assistant to the County Manager Linda Matterson has been serving as the interim head of the CSD until Styron took over on Monday. Matterson covered the position following Brian Brogan’s termination.Looking at Styron’s past work, he seems to be a good match for Los Alamos, County Manager Harry Burgess told Los Alamos County Council during its regular meeting Tuesday night.“He comes to us from Hollywood, Fla. … prior to that he spent a significant amount of time in Farmington so he is familiar with New Mexico and specifically worked on a lot of projects related to outdoor recreation; most recently one of the highlights was … a lake they had up there (in Farmington), which had been closed to any use. Cory put together a program to open it up for public use … and set up a fee schedule to make it self-supporting,” Burgess said. “We have partnered with some of our brand identity and advertising with the same group that worked in Farmington, so they were familiar with his efforts and it just made a good match.”Styron said he is excited to work in Los Alamos County, which is calls a municipality rich in recreational offerings.“I’m very excited to be here and look forward to continuing to add value to this great community that really does have a great love of the outdoors and recreation as a whole and I’m just honored to be here and look forward to making a difference in this community,” Styron said during Tuesday’s meeting.During an interview with the Los Alamos Daily Post, Styron said the County has “all these great attributes for people to use and that enhance quality of life.”He listed the library system and the aquatic center as a few of these attributes. On a personal note, Styron said he is particularly excited about the County’s trail system.“The trail system is spectacular … I have two dogs that love being outside,” he said. “I still get a thrill when getting in contact with nature … the fishing in the region is really great (and) just to be this close to nature is really positive and exciting.”In addition to overseeing the parks and recreational division in the County, Styron also will head the social services division, which interacts with various organizations in the community. He said he is eager to continue those partnerships.“It is always great when we can partner with others in the community … and provide higher visibility to community members who may need these services,” Styron said.Styron is entering his new position at an interesting time. The pandemic as well as the need to comply with the Governor’s public health order have had a big impact on the programs and services that the Community Services Department offers.Styron said that the County has done a good job responding to the public health order as well as finding creative ways to continue services to the public, adding that he believes there has been successes with offering virtual events.Before coming to the County, Styron said he worked as the parks and recreation director in Hollywood, Fla. Before that, he served as director of Parks and Recreation and Cultural Affairs in Farmington.Additionally, Styron said he serves on the national board for the commission of accreditation of parks and recreation agencies. He said there are 196 municipalities across the country that are accredited. He explained that the accreditation provides a framework for best practices.Styron earned his bachelor’s degree in business from Dallas Baptist University in Dallas, Texas and his MBA from the University of Phoenix. Furthermore, he is a certified parks and recreation professional through the National Park and Recreation Association.Recreation and the outdoors are real passions, Styron said.“We’re kind of like teachers … so many things we provide are foundational … we really encourage communities to thrive and be a great place to live and break down barriers … we have provided safe harbors and places to have positive and memorable experiences,” he said.

The Sennebogen 1100E has a load capacity of 50 tSheet piling is a structural component placed at a suitable depth under the foundation pit and joined to create a vertical wall known as a sheet pile wall, which guards against water and supports the ground. It can be permanent or temporary , but if it is only being used for a limited time, the wall removed when the work finishes and reused elsewhere. This was the case in Milan.The company using the crane, Venice-based Locapal was commissioned by Dutch group Arcadis to lift out 150 sheet piles of 10 m (33 ft) in length and 130 of 13 m (42 ft). The 1100 E is one of four of the German manufacturer’s cranes in Locapal’s fleet, and once an excavator had “discovered” the sheet piles in the ground, it was put to work. The 1100 E has a load capacity of 50 t and, equipped with a compaction attachment, it pulls the sheet piles out of the ground and places them neatly nearby.“Crawler cranes are important machines when it comes to heavy lifting and assembly work during building construction,” said Locapal owner Claudio Pizzamano.“Each site has its own requirements and challenges, and the 1100 E is a very efficient partner thanks to its compact size and its flexible manoeuvrability in day to day operations A Sennebogen 1100 E crawler crane has removed hundreds of metres of sheet piling to prepare a site in Milan, Italy, for a new housing project.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#
The company’s consolidated gross profit for 2014 was EUR109.7 million (USD123 million), which Röhlig says was just about the same level as in 2013. The company explained that this was due to continuing pressure on margins in the sea freight sector.However, Röhlig says that it has picked up speed in the current fiscal year. “In the first five months of this year, gross profit saw a double-digit increase of 15 percent, with a marked improvement in the operating result as well,” said director of finance, Hans-Ludger Körner.The company added that growth has been particularly pleasing in North America, Asia and South Africa – each of which achieved gross profits 30 percent higher than the previous year.In future, Röhlig plans to lower its operating costs through the extensive digitalisation of its order processing. The company believes this will free employees to devote more time to customer retention.Moreover, said Röhlig, future changes in the organisational structure of the company are intended to make it possible to manage its core products of sea freight, air freight, project logistics, and supply chain management on a global basis.www.rohlig.com
UK: Secretary of State for Transport Patrick McLoughlin unveiled a plaque on October 6 to mark the completion of a £44m modernisation of Manchester Victoria station, which is used by more than 7 million passengers/year.The three-year project was managed by Network Rail, with BDP as architects and Morgan Sindall as principal contractor. Work was undertaken while the station remained open, with a scaffolding deck installed so that the station’s 7 000 m2 roof could be dismantled. It has been replaced with a new 8 500 m2 structure comprising 410 ETFE cushions supported by 2 000 tonnes of steelwork, including 15 ribs of which the largest is 96 m long and weighs 80 tonnes. A 60 m bridge provides a high-level link between the station and Manchester Arena, separating event attendees from rail passengers to facilitate the installation of ticket gates. This also provides a mezzanine level with retail space and lifts giving step-free access to the platforms. Heritage features at the station have been uncovered, and war memorials repaired and cleaned.‘For far too long people travelling in and out of Manchester Victoria had to make do with a tired and dark station’, said Network Rail Chief Executive Mark Carne. ‘The contrast today is remarkable. Manchester Victoria station is modern, clean and flooded with natural light; a station this great city so badly needs. It is a key part of our £1bn programme to modernise the railway for the whole of the north of England.’

Bahri, a global leader in transportation and logistics, and Koninklijke Bunge, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bunge Limited, a global agribusiness and food company, have inaugurated the offices of their joint venture BahriBunge Dry Bulk in Dubai, UAE.Abdulrahman M Al-Mofadhi, chairman of Bahri, hosted a special ceremony at Burj Al Arab in to celebrate the occasion and reveal the new logo of the company. The company plans to ship over 5 million tonnes of dry bulk commodities in its first year. In addition, the new company will step up the import and export of dry bulk goods and ocean freight material in and out of the Middle East while simultaneously strengthening the operations of Bahri Dry Bulk, a business unit within Bahri.According to agreement, Bahri Dry Bulk will own 60 per cent of the shares in the venture and Bunge will own the remaining 40 per cent. The joint venture, which is financed pro rata by Bahri Dry Bulk and Bunge, will charter and commercially operate SUPRAMAX and/or PANAMAX (and/or other suitably-sized dry bulk vessels) initially from the fleet currently owned or managed by Bahri Dry Bulk, and subsequently from third parties.Officials at the InaugurationAl-Mofadhi said, “The launch of BahriBunge Dry Bulk joint venture marks an important milestone for our company. Bahri’s invaluable insights of the Middle East markets along with Bunge’s dynamics of the freight industry globally will help BahriBunge Dry Bulk Ltd emerge as a reliable and robust carrier especially for the trade of grains and other agricultural commodities. I am confident that this new joint venture is formed in the right direction to achieve Saudi Vision 2030 and strengthen our commitment towards harnessing existing relations and forging new ones.”“I congratulate both Bahri Dry Bulk and Bunge offices on this strategic alliance. Launching BahriBunge Dry Bulk Ltd. and adding state-of-the-art vessels to the existing fleet will go a long way in streamlining the flow of dry bulk in the region and also contribute tremendously in executing trade in a seamless and efficient manner. Bunge brings notable success in commodity trading and shipment of dry bulk, and its operational strength will be crucial in serving the growing demand for dry goods and reliable freight services in the region. This is also in line with the ever-growing appetite to boost our regional footprint and nurture relations with global companies,” said Nezar Banabeela, chairman of BahriBunge Dry Bulk.

EducationLocalNewsPrimarySecondary Education Trust Fund seeking public’s assistance by: – May 19, 2014 Share Share Share Sharing is caring! 98 Views no discussions Tweet Director of the Education Trust Fund, Willie Fevrier (file photo)The Education Trust Fund (EFT) is continuing efforts at raising funds for the sustenance of its various assistance programs, but with a slight twist this year. The Fund is targeting its regular donors in the private sector and others; however, it will be done via solicitation letters this year as opposed to the annual radio-thon. The Fund is a program designed to provide assistance to parents who are challenged in meeting requirements to keep their children in school. “This year we decided to do something different and so we have sent solicitation letters to several business concerns with a summary report of the expenses of the Fund,” director of the Fund Willie Fevrier announced at a press conference on Monday, May 19, 2014.Although the Dominica Government provides the Fund with an annual subvention of $50,000.00 which covers part of the cost for textbooks, transportation where buses have not been engaged, school registration and CXC examination fees among others, this is not sufficient to sustain the Fund’s programs.Mr Fevrier added that the government also provides the funds for the payment of private bus drivers to have been contracted for their services, funds for uniform allowance and the school transfer grant. He informed however, that the Fund is to assist parents who are challenged.“It is important to note that contrary to the belief of some people that the assistance provided is for everyone let it be known that the program is designed for parents who are challenged in meeting their requirements to keep their sons and daughters in school”.“It is not for all and sundry, hence there is an application process,” Mr Fevrier continued.Application forms are available at the Ministry of Education, both at Government headquarters and at the Cornwall Street office and at village councils.All applications are to be submitted to the Education Trust Fund’s office on Cornwall Street by July 31, 2014. He has warned parents that they must adhere to the July 31, 2014 deadline.Dominica Vibes News
