Johnson lab goes green

first_img The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Johnson has developed an all-purpose, environmentally friendly cleaning product, Oxy Orange, that will disinfect as it cleans any and everything in its path.“Pike County has made a name for itself as being environmentally conscious,” Johnson said. “K&W Plastics is the largest recycler of polypropylene in the world and the City of Troy is a leader in recycling. So, how appropriate for Johnson Labs to come up with an environmentally responsible product.”Johnson has a patent for the all-purpose cleaning product that he has perfected. Oxy Orange is so environmentally friendly that it breaks down into water and oxygen.

And the Pike County Economic Development Corp. is ready to step up to the plate with marketing assistance.“We have a grant for our local marketing program,” said Marsha Gaylard, EDC president. “We encourage Pike County businesses to support other Pike County businesses by buying from and selling to each other. Pike County benefits when businesses look locally before going elsewhere. And, when they can’t find what they need locally, we encourage them to shop with Alabama industries. That way we keep money here in Pike County and in Alabama.”Oxy Orange is already being used at local industries and businesses in both the concentrated and ready-to-use forms as a “one do-it-all product.”Johnson Lab has gained wide recognition for its five other patents, four of which are used in the hunting industry as odor eliminators, and as insect repellants.Johnson is confident that once people began to recognize the benefits of Oxy Orange, the good smelling, hard working, environmentally friendly cleaner will be the all-purpose cleaner of choice both at home and “on the job.” “Water and oxygen, how much more environmentally friendly can you get?” Johnson said. “It has no harsh chemicals for you to breathe, get on your skin or flush down your drains. Oxy Orange will safely clean and disinfect everything from glass to countertops and carpets.”The biodegradable, germ-fighting clearer is made up of peroxide, orange oil and surfactants.“The benefits of hydrogen peroxide are many because it disinfects as it cleans,” Johnson said. “Orange oil is a natural solvent and the surfactants are the soap part of the product.Surfactants are the active agents that encapsulate dirt in the bubbles and lift and trap it so it can be removed. “Go Green” is the global movement of people working to sustain the world’s environment.And, for each and every person, the place to “Go Green” is right in his or her own backyard.That’s exactly what Louis Johnson, founder and owner of Johnson Labs in Troy, is doing.

Monitoring vital if flexibility is to have an impact

first_img Comments are closed. Employers should monitor how many staff take advantage of the new right forparents to request flexible working, according to employment experts The WorkFoundation. The right, intended to help parents combine their work and homeresponsibilities, gives parents of children under six or disabled childrenunder 18 the right to request to work flexibly. Alexandra Jones, policy specialist at The Work Foundation, warned that ifcompanies rely on individuals to take the initiative to request flexibleworking, there is a risk that only a few will take advantage of the policies. “Valued employees with specialist skills may be confident aboutapproaching managers and building a business case for changes to their workingpatterns, but many individuals will not feel able to do so,” she said. www.workfoundation.com Previous Article Next Article Monitoring vital if flexibility is to have an impactOn 15 Apr 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

NCAA issues probation, one-year postseason ban against Georgia Tech men’s basketball program

first_img Beau Lund Written by September 26, 2019 /Sports News – National NCAA issues probation, one-year postseason ban against Georgia Tech men’s basketball programcenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailjetcityimage/iStock(ATLANTA) — The NCAA committee on infractions has placed the Georgia Tech men’s basketball program on four years’ probation and banned the team from postseason play this year due to multiple rules violations.The basketball program will also lose one scholarship per year for the four years, as well as other restrictions on recruiting. The punishments come after reporting that recruits and players at Georgia Tech had received impermissible benefits from members of the program. In March, ESPN reported that assistant coach Darryl LaBarrie had been charged with a violation related to a 2016 strip club visit that included Georgia Tech alumnus and NBA player Jarrett Jack and then-recruit and current Chicago Bulls player Wendell Carter.The NCAA has ordered the school to disassociate from Jack for three years, the same length of time that the program self-imposed disassociation with LaBarrie.Jack reportedly provided Carter and an unidentified then-Georgia Tech basketball player with $300 for the strip club visit.“Adult entertainment has no place in the NCAA Collegiate Model,” the committee said in making its ruling. “It is particular abhorrent in the recruiting process where coaches and others in a position of trust are responsible for the well-being of high school students visiting their campus.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Bill Murray’s Reaction To This NOLA Band Playing ‘Ghostbusters’ Is Priceless

first_imgIn December of 2014, beloved actor Bill Murray found himself in a crowded bar called the Three Muses on Frenchmen Street in New Orleans, LA. The house band, led by trombonist Glen David Andrews, decided to treat Murray to a familiar tune, and busted out in a performance of “Ghostbusters” by Ray Parker, Jr., best known for its role as the movie’s theme song.While the story made the rounds at the time, it wasn’t until Andrews posted the video last night were we able to see how it went down. Thanks to a YouTube user only known by Daniel, we can watch Murray’s reaction as a NOLA brass group surprises him with the theme music. You can also see Jon Favreau sitting near Murray, enjoying the festivities.“It was one of the most exciting moments of my career, to be sitting next to Bill Murray with him smiling and them playing ‘Ghostbusters’ to him from like 10 feet away,” Favreau said in an interview with Mashable. “Then he leaned over to me and he was like, ‘You know, Jon, you really need a theme song.’ He really got a kick out of it.” What fun![H/T NOLA.com]last_img read more

The Case For An Academic Examination Of Phish Fandom

first_imgThe first-ever Phish Studies Conference will take place May 17–19 at Oregon State University. For much of the Phish community, scholarship is a foreign idea. The enigmatic world of academic conferences and peer-reviewed journals is something that only those in academia are privy to. But for those academics participating in the conference, the chance to blend their livelihoods with their passions is nothing short of a dream come true. For the rest of the Phish community, this is their chance to witness something monumental: the birth of a new academic discipline to validate the deep level of thinking in which this community regularly engages.It was only a matter of time before this happened. The Phish community grew out of east coast college students in the 80s and 90s who eventually had to pursue greater goals beyond Phish tour when the band began their series of hiatuses. This is an intelligent group of people who, for the most part, participate in complex and intellectually inspiring conversations about the band all the time. Fans use their college-born skills to dissect every nuance of the band and this community because, well, because Phish is our life, and who doesn’t want to delve into a conversation about the meaning of life?In fact, there is even a whole discipline dedicated to Fandom Studies. These scholars explain how fandom enhances our lives by allowing us to participate in meaningful discourse, similar to academic communities—which, essentially, are the only places that adults are able to consistently engage in the philosophical engagement that many crave. The fans participating in the conference, a group of the most non-traditional scholars you will ever meet, are men and women who have used the band and the community as case studies for their disciplines of choice in order to gain status as PhDs.This is no easy feat. Academics are stuffy by nature and have very particular views about what constitutes an acceptable area of study. Most do not see modern day jam bands as a good example of groundbreaking research. But why not? We all agree that Phish stands out as a leader in the jam band community, with the unique way they have brought together a neat little community of people who have dedicated a large chunk of their existence to participation in the rituals that are required to be a fan. Ask a fan his or her opinion on a show, a set, an individual jam, and you are likely to receive a dissertation-like response that can rival any peer-reviewed publication. There is no doubt in any Phish fan’s mind that documenting the actions of this band is essential to preserving this cultural anomaly, a band that changed the rules and continues to grow with new fans and new ways of communicating to and inspiring those fans to join the ranks of their dedicated base.In this respect, Phish allows us to hold up a mirror to a culture and reflect upon the ways in which we situate ourselves in the world. As you can imagine, Phish fans are hella-smart, and their papers reflect an engaging look into their various areas of study, which makes it a great way to digest interdisciplinary studies (see: academic buzzword). This is why, in November of 2018, a group of eight scholar-fans participated in a panel of presentations about their individual studies related to the band at the 104th National Communications Conference. Stuffy academics, beware! Scholar-fans are here to shake things up.The conference at OSU is the vision of Dr. Stephanie Jenkins, the philosophy professor behind the online course “Philosophy of the School of Phish”. In fact, this past summer, she brought a group of her students to The Gorge as the lab portion of the class and staged the first ever academic colloquium at a Phish show. Eight scholars presented their research for the students, along with a host of curious fans who braved the sweltering heat in order to debate the concept of the “wook” and the statistical formula used to predict the rating of a Phish show on Phish.net. It was a glorious afternoon, and a clear indication of how hungry Phish fans are for a deeper and more intellectual view into how they spend their free time. Remember the saying, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life?” Well, welcome to early retirement.While the concept of an academic conference about a jam band may raise some questions, as in “whose tax dollars are supporting this?”, it is essential to contemplate the implications of such an innovative proposal. Besides the obvious ability to poke some holes in the academic bubble that is disconcerting for aspiring PhDs these days, there are other benefits to this formula. Firstly, this academic conference will host a panel of students who will have the opportunity to learn how to present at a conference. In addition, they will be connected with existing academics to mentor them in their aspirational studies. This concept aligns with our community as a place where like-minded people are welcome to participate in and be accepted by others who may have more expertise and are willing to share their knowledge. In other words, we must support a deeper level of intellectual engagement in a more public arena in order to expose the nuances of the theories that already guide our lives. An academic conference on Phish Studies, which can attract an audience of non-academics, can illuminate the need for more exposure to bigger ideas which inspire the enlightening conversation that we so desperately need today. There is no better community to support this endeavor than the Phish community.So what can you do? For starters, we can start this dialogue, make it an ongoing, productive conversation that will inspire action where we need it most—the places that Phish fans converge in their views of the world. The financial and emotional support of this community can do wonders for the field of academia that is currently in a precarious place, and the Phish Studies Conference is an excellent place to start.Currently, there is a small price tag for students to attend the conference (academics can generally get some support from their universities). There are also opportunities to sponsor a student’s academic endeavors. Non-phans are also encouraged to come and check out the thought-provoking insights on the fan base with which we’re so familiar. We can do our due diligence to document this amazing world we are privy to, in order to ensure future generations can learn from it. We know that it’s not just about the music. Why not prove it to everyone else?Registration for the Phish Studies Conference at Oregon State University on May 17–19 is now open.
