Costa and Claud Beltran, chef and owner of Bacchus’ Kitchen.All 84 holiday wishes of the 12 teens living in Hillsides off-campus group homes were fulfilled by members of H100, Hillsides young professional support group, during their Fall Member Social held on November 19. Some 60 guests gathered together at Chef Claud Beltran’s new restaurant in Pasadena, Bacchus’ Kitchen, to share an evening of conversation, cocktails, appetizers, and giving back.The restaurant, still under construction with exposed walls and little furniture, provided a unique and elegantly sparse scene for the event. The room was dominated by an eight-foot silver Christmas tree from which the individual wishes of the teens dangled. The gifts asked for were new bedding, holiday wishes, and stocking stuffers for the teens.“The H100 group has taken the teens who live at Hillsides satellite homes under their wings, which is important because often during the holidays, donors focus mainly on the younger children and the teens get left out,” said Hillsides director of development Carrie Espinoza. “With these gifts, the teens will have a happy holiday and be reminded that someone cares.”During the evening, a former resident of Hillsides, Jamie Steinberg, spoke. Steinberg lived at Hillsides 27 years ago when she was 10. She told the guests that after being shuffled through 20 to 25 foster homes as a young child, she was placed at Hillsides. “I felt for the first time that people cared about me,” she said. “I got a sense of security I never felt before.” While at Hillsides, Steinberg received her first gift, a stuffed animal, that she still owns today. She also credits Hillsides with finding her a loving adoptive mother.Hillsides chief executive Joseph M. Costa also addressed the group, calling H100 “the future of Hillsides,” and thanking them for the considerable contributions they’d made to Hillsides. He also invited them to support the agency in its current capital campaign to raise $12 million for a renovation of the aging main campus in Pasadena. He explained that any donations made by the end of March, 2015 to the capital campaign will be matched.Bacchus’ Kitchen is located at 1384 Washington Boulevard in Pasadena and will open in early 2015.Hillsides, founded in 1913, is a premier provider dedicated to improving the overall well-being and functioning of children, youth, and families in need throughout Los Angeles County. Hillsides offers residential treatment services for children who cannot live at home or who face emotional and/or behavioral challenges. The group teen satellite homes offer older youth the opportunity to develop independent living skills, job training, and community experiences.

  • EMEC explores hydrogen by-products use

    first_imgThe European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) has started collaborating with Zero Waste Scotland on a project to identify local applications for oxygen, a by-product of the green hydrogen production process.The new project launched by EMEC will investigate how circular economy approaches can be applied to optimize the efficiency of hydrogen production and stimulate the development of a local oxygen market in Orkney.EMEC has been producing ‘green’ hydrogen since 2017, using renewable energy from local wind and tidal resources to power an electrolyser, splitting water into its chemical components: hydrogen and oxygen.Hydrogen electrolyser (Photo: Colin Keldie)However, the cost of producing hydrogen is high, as roughly one third of input energy is lost as oxygen and low-grade heat during production, according to EMEC.Therefore, the newly launched project aims to identify potential value-added applications for the commercial use of oxygen, an untapped by-product of the hydrogen production process, and develop a more circular business model for hydrogen.Local industries such as aquaculture, horticulture, diving, health and aviation all use oxygen as part of daily business, EMEC noted.Jon Clipsham, Hydrogen Manager, at EMEC said: “Building on the success of pilot ‘green’ hydrogen projects such as Surf ‘n’ Turf and BIG HIT which have aided the development of a hydrogen economy in Orkney, EMEC aim to explore the potential of the local oxygen market and are keen to receive proposals from businesses to identify local uses for oxygen.“This project will enable us to improve the efficiency of the hydrogen production process by embedding circular economy principles into our business model. It is hoped that the learnings from this project could be used as a basis for other island projects in Scotland and further afield.”Scott Bryant, Energy Infrastructure Sector Manager at Zero Waste Scotland, added: “This is an excellent opportunity to bring additional economic value to the hydrogen production process. By finding markets for the unused oxygen, we can create new and innovative local business opportunities, and also help to bring down future total energy production costs, making hydrogen generation more commercially attractive.”Integrating locally produced oxygen into the supply chain will increase island resiliency and reduce the environmental impact of businesses currently getting oxygen delivered from the UK mainland, project partners said.The project includes 30 days business support from Zero Waste Scotland as part of the circular economy business support service, an initiative supported by funding from both the Scottish Government and the European Regional Development Fund through the £73 million Resource Efficient Circular Economy Accelerator Program.last_img read more

  • Frustration over lack of progress for Mica homeowners

    first_imgPeople living in Mica-affected homes in Donegal are growing increasingly frustrated on the lack of progress on the redress scheme.Back in May, the Government pledged €20 million for a repair scheme in Donegal and Mayo. But campaigners say no real progress has been made since.Ann Owens Chairperson on the Mica Action Group is calling for every effort to be made by Donegal County Council to make the scheme a priority.  Ms Owens said:“After the initial elation felt when the scheme was approved at Cabinet level in May, we find ourselves once again in a position where the powers that be are dragging their heels and no evidence of any progress in the rolling out of this scheme is being illustrated.“Responsibility for the roll out of the mica scheme has been delegated to Donegal County Council (DCC) and we were given an assurance by Minister Joe McHugh in May that MAG would be invited to work with stakeholders from DCC to ensure that the needs of affected homeowners were taken into account due to our first-hand experience with those in the most urgent need.”Since then, Ms Owens said there has been little assurance on any progress. There is no time for delays, she said: “We need to see the fine details of the mica scheme published immediately and we need instructions for how homeowners can apply to get their homes fixed. We cannot accept further delays. “We would ask, if there really is a more pressing issue that needs to be addressed by Donegal County Council at the moment than this when Councillors, during the election campaign reported this to be the number one concern on the doorsteps.  We need to see every effort being made to prioritise the mica scheme without any further delay and we ask that DCC at the very least, confirm when the scheme will be rolled out and applications will be accepted. “We really don’t think this is too much to ask.”  Frustration over lack of progress for Mica homeowners was last modified: June 28th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:mica redresslast_img read more

  • Locally built Gautrains on the way

    first_img28 July 2008 Buckley said the plant boasted extensive facilities for static and dynamic testing, ensuring maximum reliability of rolling stock, irrespective of rail gauge, climatic conditions and operating requirements. He said the government would link up all the small and medium enterprises in the region with some of the people currently working on the Gautrain, a move which could turn the region into a base for the rail industry as a whole. UCW Gautrain project manager Paul Buckley said all 81 cars would be completed and ready for delivery on 24 February 2009. Once fully operational, the plant will employ 85 people – 17 of whom who are currently being trained at Bombardier’s (the train manufacturer’s) facilities in Derby in the United Kingdom. The group has been in the UK for about four months now, and are being trained in produce knowledge, competency assessments, transfer of technology training, and computer programming. Boosting economic activity Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material Huge challenge “We are ready, we had to be on time,” he said, adding that they company was both proud and fortunate to be entrusted with the innovative and ground-breaking transport system – the first of its kind in the country. Bombardier’s Derby assembly plant will send an additional 10 staff members to constitute the core of the assembly teams when the production commences in Nigel. “It’s not just the trains; signalling and driving are very important; we also need conductors and so forth. We need many South Africans to become artisans and become train drivers,” Shilowa said. Gauteng’s East Rand is set to realise the benefits of the Gautrain, with 81 out of 96 of the high-speed train’s coaches to be assembled at the Union Carriage and Wagon plant in Nigel, to the east of Johannesburg. “The Nigel facility is purpose designed and built for the manufacture, refurbishment and overhauling of all types of rolling stock,” he said. SAinfo reporter They are then expected to train the remaining 68 workers as part of skills and technology transfer that had been built into the Gautrain project contract. Speaking at the recent handover of the first 15 trainsets for Gautrain at Derby in the United Kingdom, Gauteng Premier Mbhazima Shilowa said: “It is my hope that as we do the rest of the work and assembly, we will boost the economic activity around Brakpan, Springs and Nigel, that will create much-needed jobs there”. UCW managing director Palello Lebaka said the company had invested some R15-million in their Nigel assembly plant to prepare it to work on coaches for the Gautrain. “More than R5-million of that amount [was] invested in training,” he said in a statement from the Gauteng provincial government last week, adding that equipping the company’s personnel with the right skills was a priority. Already, a team of three people – the project manager, operations manager and the inventory control personnel – are based at the Nigel plant to see that it is in order. Lebaka boasts that they are ready for the huge challenge, with assembly of the coaches starting next month, on 12 August, adding that the team had done well to finish the plant a month ago.last_img read more
