Peter Welch (D-Vt.) today announced $6.7 million in federal grants for home weatherization projects in Vermont, with another $8.4 million to come later.The funds, secured in the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act, will help weatherize more than 1,800 Vermont homes, cutting energy costs, reducing greenhouse gas emissions, and creating green jobs across the state.The funds will be directed through the Vermont Office of Economic Opportunity to five local organizations to provide services across the state.  Funding will be available to families making up to 200 percent of the federal poverty level – or about $44,000 a year for a family of four.  Up to 20 percent of the money will be available for job training.After demonstrating successful implementation of the first phase of funding, the state will receive an additional $8.4 million, for a total of nearly $17 million.Weatherization projects allow families to save money by making their homes more energy efficient, resulting in average savings of 32 percent for heating bills and hundreds of dollars per year on overall energy bills.“These awards demonstrate the Obama administration’s strong commitment to moving quickly as part of the country’s economic recovery – creating jobs and doing important work for the American people – while ensuring that taxpayer dollars are spent responsibly,” said U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu.last_img read more

Colombian Army Helps Keep French Hospital Running

first_imgBy Dialogo April 01, 2010 A variety of nongovernmental organizations in Haiti are working together with military personnel from a number of countries. A good example is the Aimer Haiti hospital, organized by a French NGO of the same name but administered since the earthquake by the Colombian Army. In the days following the tragedy, the hospital cared for victims with broken bones and wounds. “Now we’re seeing a lot of public-health cases, such as illnesses caused by lack of hygiene and pulmonary illnesses. It all involves environmental management, due to the contamination and the lack of potable water,” explained Sgt. José Ernesto Cubillas, a Colombian Army medic working at Aimer Haiti. After the earthquake, the Colombian military doctors provided care to hundreds of people every day — a substantial increase from the 50 patients seen daily before the disaster. “We’re working with the U.S. government and with the Southern Command,” the sergeant explained. “It’s all very moving. We Colombians are very glad to be able to help the Haitian people,” he concluded.last_img read more

I need to improve ATM up-time & maintenance

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr “I’m at an impasse with our ATMs.  I need to improve our ATM uptime and simplify the way we maintain and service them.  We currently have multiple maintenance service providers who are supposed to keep my ATMs running, but something is always causing them to be down.  And, it seems that multiple ATMs are down for multiple reasons every month and it’s not getting any better. My boss takes every opportunity to remind me how this is “affecting our brand” and I’ve told my ATM vendors that if our ATMs aren’t working, nothing else matters to our customers. But, I need to find someone who “gets it” and will be a partner that I can rely on to make managing ATM operations easier.  And we desperately need someone who can keep my ATMs up and running.”Sound familiar? Well it might if you’re involved with the success (or failure) of your institution’s ATMs. The good news is you’re not alone.  Banks and credit unions of all sizes are beginning to lean on partners that provide ATM managed services and outsourcing options to minimize the burdens and maximize accountability related to ATM management. The right partner can be your single point of contact for all things ATM and will allow you to start eliminating a long list of vendors that haven’t added the value that was promised. The right partner will also institute uptime-based service level agreements (SLA) to sustain ATM uptime and provide your institution rebates or incentives if near-perfect uptime isn’t achieved. continue reading »last_img read more

So, that’s my wish for you, that every morning you get up for the next, as long as you can accomplish it, think about what we accomplished this year in Europe, England and I hope you feel as proud as I do. “To the staff, to the players, to all of you who expended so much effort over these last two years, I just want to say thank you from all of us at Fenway Sports Group.
