When Michael Andrew was 10 Years Old he needed an easy and affordable lap pool. EZ Pools helped Michael train by giving him access to his own lap pool daily.

LAGUNA NIGUEL, CALIFORNIA, USA, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On July 28 2021, the world was introduced to a USA Olympic swimmer by the name of Michael Andrew. Although present at the opening ceremony of the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo Japan, it wasn't until Wednesday night, July 28 2021, that the world saw this remarkably talented swimmer. We at EZ Pools have had the privilege to help Michael become the amazing swimmer he is ultimately destined to be.

In the winter of 2008, EZ Pools received a call from a desperate mother in Aberdeen South Dakota. "There are only two 25 meter indoor pools in this area." Tina Andrew explained to us over the phone. "One of them is controlled by a competiting team and the other is open to the public, but every time we try to practice, some one jumps in the lane." She continued to explain that her and her husband, Peter, quickly recognized their oldest son was a very gifted swimmer – but they had no way to support his talent. Tina in her own right, was a very successful athlete and was a fixture on the UK TV show "Gladiators." Peter, her husband, had been a successful swimmer in the South African Navy. So it was in Michael's blood.

"How can we help?" We offered. Tina went on to explain that they were looking at an old warehouse that had been used as a dance club. "If we gut the whole building and give you the measurements, can you make a pool to fit?" She asked. The answer is always of course. Every EZ Pool is made to order, which is why we offer so many different options. So they got busy gutting, we got busy making and kept busy building. In the span of two months, in the dead of winter, The Andrew family opened their very own swim club – The Aberdeen Aquaholics. And boy did Michael make it worth the investment.

With an indoor, heated, 25 yard pool at his disposal, Michael got busy. A year later he set 12 national records in the 10-under age group. "He's a very gifted athlete, " Peter Andrew said. "Right away when we started, I could see he had talent. He's a real blessing." Even other coaches could quickly recognize true atheletic genius in the making. "He's a very gifted child," said Trevor Layden a coach for another team who later become one of Michael Adnrew's coaches. "He's got a great ethic. I saw him break a couple of national records…he's gotten just that much better as he's gone on." And EZ Pools was there to make it possible.

The Andrew family moved to Lawrence Kansas in mid 2012. The bought a rather large estate that had plenty of room for a new pool. Rather than build a pool to fit, they designed eactly the pool they needed and built the building around it. And once again, they turned to EZ Pools for the perfect training pool.

The most common question we get is about flip turns, "Can an EZ Pool support flip turns by professional athletes?" Yes of course, but the Andrew family discovered a unique advantage. Because an EZ Pool is soft-sided, the wall absorbs some of the kicking energy a swimmer exerts when pushing off. Michael discovered this early on and quickly went to work building up his leg muscles. As a result, he had a greater push off in hard-sided concrete competition pools than his competitors. Did this help him achieve early successes? Hard to say truly other than Michael has always proved to be a very gifted and determined athlete.

Tina and Peter spoke with us in length about the pool they needed. It was different than any other pool we had made at that time. Marked for both 25 yeard and 25 meter, with a little extar room on both ends to allow for rigid bulkheads to be installed. "Why?" We asked Peter. "We need more exact timing and the rigid surface more mimics concrete pools." Very true and at basically 1/10th the cost of a concrete pool.

Michael earned a scholarship in a University in California, so the family packed up a moved again. But rtaher than waste their investment, we helped broker a deal with a small non-profit swim club in Kansas that bought the pool and equipment from the Andrew Family. "We were on a very tight budget," said Melvin Nemechek, one the founders of the swim club. "This purchase saved us so much money, we could buy a smaller additional pool from EZ Pools for a smalelr kids to train in."
May the legacy of Michael's untiring dedication to the sport inspire their swimmers to excel, as well as others. Learn More About EZ Pools at www.4ezpool.com.

Gracias a este subsidio federal, otorgado a pequeños negocios afectados por la pandemia de COVID-19, la reconocida firma podrá recuperarse y seguir adelante.

Este dinero ha llegado en un momento crítico. Aparte de ayudarnos a sobrevivir a la pandemia, también nos permitirá mejorar el negocio, darles trabajo a más empleados y salvar a varias familias.”

— Roberto Ramos, fundador/presidente de Cubaocho.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cubaocho Art Museum, Inc. ─firma que cobija al emblemático Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center, de la Calle 8, en el famoso vecindario miamense de Little Havana─ acaba de obtener más de medio millón de dólares de parte del programa de Subvenciones para Operadores de Locales Cerrados (SVOG, por sus siglas en inglés).

«Este dinero ha llegado en un momento realmente crítico. Aparte de ayudarnos a sobrevivir a la pandemia, también nos permitirá mejorar el negocio, darles trabajo a más empleados ─principalmente, músicos, artistas─ y salvar a varias familias, ya que mucha gente depende de nosotros», dijo, entusiasmado, el presidente de la firma, Roberto Ramos.

Su esposa y vicepresidenta de la compañía, Yeney Fariñas-Ramos, por su parte, compartió el criterio de que la financiación «no pudo llegar en un mejor momento, justo cuando pensábamos que íbamos a perderlo todo. En realidad, no creímos que fuera a suceder, pero, evidentemente, hay un Dios mirando por nosotros y un team de expertos que son los mejores».

La ejecutiva se refiere a Rafael Marrero & Company, prestigiosa firma de gestión y consultoría empresarial, también afincada en la ciudad de Miami, que estuvo a cargo de tramitarles la financiación del SVOG de principio a fin.

«Estamos muy agradecidos con Marrero, y reconocemos la actitud tan linda y tan positiva de su equipo de especialistas. Es más: aunque no nos hubieran aprobado la ayuda, igual les hubiéramos agradecido por el excelente trabajo que han hecho con nosotros», recalcó Yeney.

En esa misma posición de gratitud se encuentra el fundador de Cubaocho, para quien Marrero es el salvador de la comunidad. «Realmente, Marrero salva a los negocios que más lo necesitan, a los empleados… En nuestro caso, ha ayudado a salvar a más de 20 familias, principalmente, familias de músicos, que son los que alivian el corazón», puntualizó.

Concedido por la Administración de Pequeñas Empresas (SBA, por sus siglas en inglés) a raíz del impacto del coronavirus, el SVOG brinda ayuda económica a los pequeños negocios del sector del entretenimiento en vivo que han resultado más perjudicados por la pandemia. Cubaocho, pilar del arte cubano del siglo XIX e inicios y mediados del siglo XX, fue uno de ellos.

Hasta la fecha, el programa ha otorgado $7,5 mil millones de dólares en subvenciones a más de 10,000 pequeñas empresas vinculadas con el mundo del espectáculo en directo. Según anunciara la SBA esta semana, más de dos tercios de los subsidios se han otorgado a negocios con menos de 10 empleados, cumpliendo así con el objetivo de darles prioridad a las firmas más pequeñas.

Acerca de Cubaocho Art Museum, Inc

Considerado por muchos como un sitio de obligada visita en la Pequeña Habana, este espacio de galería y reunión alberga una gran colección de arte cubano, una biblioteca de investigación y un bar-cafetería distinguido por su variada selección de rones. Asimismo, cuenta con una importante colección de revistas cubanas previas a 1959, entre ellas, “Carteles”, “Vanidades”, “Bohemia” y “El Fígaro”.

Quienes aman la cultura, en general, y el arte cubano, en particular, llegan allí para apreciar las obras expuestas, asistir a espectáculos en vivo y cubanísimas descargas, así como también para degustar los famosos puros y mojitos del lugar.

Acerca de Rafael Marrero & Company

Rafael Marrero & Company es una consultoría de gestión que asesora a emprendedores sobre cómo hacer negocios con el Gobierno de los Estados Unidos. Con el Dr. Rafael Marrero a la cabeza, la firma ha sido reconocida en dos ocasiones por la revista Inc. como una de las 500 empresas privadas de mayor crecimiento del país y como una de las 50 mejores compañías en términos de cultura empresarial.

En 2016, el Dr. Marrero recibió el máximo galardón otorgado a negocios minoritarios del país por parte del Concilio Nacional del Desarrollo para Empresas Minoritarias. En 2019, ganó el Premio Sunshine en la categoría de Small Business del año, que otorga la Cámara de Comercio Hispana del Sur de la Florida, y en ese mismo año, publicó el bestseller de Amazon La salsa secreta del Tío Sam, primer libro sobre contratación federal especialmente dedicado a la comunidad hispana.

2021 Global Business & Interfaith Peace Award Finalists

CEO King Husein is one of the world's leading business champions of interfaith understanding and religious freedom.

Commitment to my faith has enabled me to establish core principles to guide my business from its inception. These core principles became the foundation upon which I built my company.”

— King Husein, Chairman and CEO of Span Construction & Engineering

WASHINGTON DC, TOKYO, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — King Husein, Chairman and CEO of Span Construction & Engineering, has played a critical role addressing the rising global tide of restrictions on religious freedom. Span Construction, the largest steel construction company in the world and exclusive builder of Costco stores worldwide.

King’s efforts range from helping found the South Asian Consortium for Religion and Law Studies, to helping kick off the first-ever Business Roundtable to advance International Religious Freedom during the 2019 UN General Assembly in New York City. In diverse venues such as the Horasis Global Conference in Portugal and the IRF Summit in Washington DC, King shares how religious ethics benefit business.

His advocacy also looks toward the next generation by his helping launch an initiative at BYU Hawaii to equip students from across Asia to know how to advance religious freedom when they return home.

"It is a true honor for us to recognize one of the world's leading business champions of interfaith understanding and religious freedom," said Dr. Brian Grim, President of the  Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, "and we wholeheartedly congratulate King as a finalist for the 2021 Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards."

A concrete sign of King's commitment is that his company's "About" page prominently features his official pledge to protect the freedom of all who work in the company to practice their faith and beliefs.

Reflecting on the values that guide his business in a to-be published manuscript on faith@work, King Husein shares:

"I love President Abraham Lincoln’s statement: “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”

"This summarizes how I strive always to keep my commitments in all aspects of my life. True success comes with preparation, opportunities, hard work, and relying on the Lord. Without a doubt, I know I can accomplish more with the help of God than I can on my own."

"Commitment to my faith has enabled me to establish core principles to guide my business from its inception. These core principles became the foundation upon which I built my company. They are ingrained in the culture of my company. Culture defines my company, and my religion defines me. Not only does my religion defines me, it also sustains me in my business, as I know it does for so many of my employees. Providing a workplace where we can bring our faith with us to work makes for a better workplace and a more successful business!"

King Husein is competing for a Gold, Silver, or Bronze medal, which will be announced and awarded on Aug. 24 virtually at Dare to Overcome. Dare to Overcome is the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation’s global intersectionality conference, highlighting the ways diverse communities support and reinforce one another to build more inclusive workplaces and peaceful societies.

Background on the Awards

The Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards are presented biennially by the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation, a US-based nonprofit, in cooperation with the United Nations Global Compact’s Business for Peace initiative. The foundation helps educate the global business community about how religious freedom is good for business and how they can promote respect for freedom of religion or belief.

The awards are held in tandem with the opening of the Paralympic Games, including previously being held in Rio de Janeiro in 2016 and in Seoul in 2018. This year they will be held during RFBF’s Dare to Overcome event, Aug. 22-24, 2021, both virtually worldwide and in-person in Tokyo (due to pandemic restrictions, limited to those already in Japan) .

In the short video below, the global chair of the Global Business & Interfaith Peace Awards, Dr. Brian Grim (also president of the Religious Freedom & Business Foundation), shares the inspiration for these awards, followed by brief reflections by former UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and former Japanese Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama.

Adding Significant Value to Bring it Home Communities and Veea’s New Real Estate Office of the Future (vREO) Concept

As one of America’s most established real estate news portals, we’re in a unique position to share our knowledge of the market, nationally, regionally and locally.”

Content distribution will be handled through a shared alliance with Realty Times, Bring it Home Communities and Veea.

STP and STC announce the release of its newly developed EHS audit protocol for New South Wales, Australia

Latest EHS Regulations Updates Assist Companies to Achieve EHS Compliance

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — STP ComplianceEHS (STP) and Specialty Technical Consultants (STC) announce the release of its recently updated EHS protocol for New South Wales, Australia. This audit protocol, which covers relevant national and State of New South Wales EHS requirements, was previously updated in March 2019. The regulatory date for the current release is March 2021.

Leading companies around the world use EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost-effective manner. EHS audit protocols are prepared by STC in partnership with STP and continue to focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific applications for manufacturing operations. As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS teaming partners, STC has in-depth knowledge and technical expertise of local/regional EHS requirements.

STP and STC maintain leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 50 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management and safety performance. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly developed protocol include:

The national Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995 were updated to incorporate new rules for charging refrigeration and air conditioning equipment which came into force on 1 January 2020 to support the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phase-down and reduce emissions of climate-damaging HFCs. These Rules ban the charging of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment with a higher global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant than the equipment was designed to use, with an exception for refrigeration or air conditioning equipment that is essential for health or public safety purposes where the design refrigerant is not available.

The national Product Emissions Standards Rules 2017 were updated to delay the commencement of the prohibition on supplying an emissions-controlled product that was due to commence on 1 July 2019 for 12 months, until 1 July 2020. The delay will allow an additional 12 months for suppliers and retailers to sell uncertified stock that was imported before the commencement of the import prohibition. Under the Product Emissions Standard Rules, certain propulsion marine engines and non-road engines are designated as “emissions-controlled products” which must be certified as meeting the Australian emissions standard, or a recognized foreign standard, in order to be imported or supplied in Australia.

The National Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 and the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Regulations 1990 were repealed and have been replaced by a new regulatory scheme for industrial chemicals under the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 and the Industrial Chemicals (General) Rules 2019.

The National Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 (assented to in March 2019) establishes a new regulatory scheme, the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS), for the importation and manufacture (introduction) of industrial chemicals in Australia. The AICIS replaced the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) on 1 July 2020. The AICIS establishes a new way of categorizing and introducing industrial chemicals that focuses the pre-introduction assessment on higher-risk chemical introductions and provides streamlined introduction pathways for lower-risk chemicals that are intended to reduce the regulatory burden for industry. It also focuses on post-introduction evaluation and monitoring to help maintain the protection of the health and safety of the public, workers, and the environment.

The National Industrial Chemicals (General) Rules 2019 (effective 1 July 2020) support the new industrial chemicals regulatory scheme established by the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019. These Rules set forth the technical and operational details and the requirements introducers must meet, including the requirement to categorize their chemicals that are not listed on the Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Johnstone Supply leads Thermostat Recycling Corp.’s Banish Mercury Off the Planet (BMOP) contest after two months of the competition. In second place is R.E. Michel Co., followed by Auer Steel & Heating Supply.

The continued support and participation by HARDI wholesalers demonstrate their commitment to a greener environment,” said Danielle Myers, operations and compliance manager, TRC. “Despite the extra burden HARDI members faced during the pandemic, many continued their high standards in recycling mercury-containing thermostats. We applaud their efforts.”

TRC reports 81.2 pounds of mercury, including more than 8,400 mercury-containing thermostats, have been recycled from 187 wholesalers through June in the BMOP contest, which began May 1 and ends Oct. 30.

The contest recognizes members of Heating Air-Conditioning Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) that collect the most mercury-containing thermostats. TRC publicly acknowledges the top three recyclers in various categories during HARDI’s annual conference. This year, the conference is in Palm Desert, California, from Dec. 4 to 7.

HARDI is the largest and most successful trade association representing the HVACR distributors in the United States.

“Despite emerging from the pandemic, 187 HARDI wholesalers have remained active and participated in our latest contest,” said Myers. “It shows the strength of our partnership and should serve as a reminder that there is still time for wholesalers to contribute because the contest doesn’t end until Oct. 30.”
