Chancellor Moody and Timaje Porter are Going for the NFL. Hear What They’re Doing to get Ready.

The NFL attracts elite athletes. Chancellor Moody and Timaje Porter think they have what it takes. Timaje is preparing for NFL Day where scouts will look him over.

Hazardous Waste Disposal – Ted Reese of Cadence Environmental Energy Explains How It’s Done

When huge chemical containers are cleaned at chemical plants, what happens to the left over hazardous sludge? What’s done with the excess from some cosmetic overruns? What about those piles of tires we used to see stacked up behind old tire shops?  Ted Reese is president and CEO of Cadence Environmental Energy. His company destroys wastes that contain energy value by feeding it into long rotary kilns at cement plants that operate at above 2600 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s all high in carbon which reduces fossil fuels needed to generate the heat. The resulting product, now harmless, becomes part of the ready made cement we use to pave our driveways, secure our basketball goals in the ground, and everything else.

Myth v Reality in the EV Car Battery World. A Chat with the Leadership of E-Mobility and TERREPOWER

Are electric car batteries an environmental disaster like some would have you think? Or are they God’s gift to planet earth as others would have you think? I speak with Maria Caballero, President of E-Mobility, a division of TERREPOWER and John Boyer, President of TERREPOWER, a division of BBB Industries. TERREPOWER takes used EV batteries and remanufacture them for resale. The execs say that, yes, there is an environmental cost to creating them, like there is for all things, but the benefit of running a car with no emissions outweights their cost. They also do electric storage tied to solar panels. Regardless of your point of view, the EV market is here to stay.

Workforce Challenges Often Triggered by Childcare Issues. Autumn Zellner, CEO of STARS Early Learning Academy, Explains.

Childcare was in a crisis before the pandemic. Too many kids. Too few spots. Many people who wanted to work were forced to stay home and care for young children and this burden impacted females much more so than males. Not much has changed since. In fact, it may have gotten worse. Many of the grants and subsidies offered during the pandemic are no longer available. 

Autmn Zellner runs STARS Early Learning Academy. She gets multiple calls each day from parents despreate to work and desperate to find a safe place to leave their children during the day. Autumn turns them all away. She wants to grow but the costs of building a new center and finding qualified labor prevents her from taking that step. It’s a crisis, and Autumn offers some ideas.
