first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Friday awarded more than $15 million to fund grant proposals to develop and expand the use of wood products, strengthen emerging wood energy markets and protect community forests. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack made the announcement in Colorado Friday while visiting prescribed fire and wildfire recovery areas adjacent to the Roosevelt National Forest Northern Colorado Front Range landscape.The grant funding, delivered through USDA Forest Service programs, will support 60 projects that cover a diverse range of activities from the development of affordable housing to expanding markets for mass timber, biochar, wood energy and other emerging wood products. The grants also include funds to help tribes, local governments and qualified non-profit organizations permanently conserve working forests that benefit communities.Forest Service awards will leverage an additional $30 million in matching and partner funds bringing the totals well above $45 million.“To manage wildfire and address climate, we need to manage our forests. Today’s investments underpin USDA’s commitment to address the climate crisis with a market-based approach that begins to move us toward a clean energy economy, led by production of renewable fuel and energy and biobased products grown and manufactured here in the U.S.,” said Vilsack. “The American Jobs Plan and USDA’s budget request for 2022 make sure the Forest Service can prioritize forest management and restoration.”“We are placing emphasis on assisting wood energy facilities in economically challenged areas to retool or add advanced technology to replace systems that are inefficient or fueled by fossil fuels.” said Forest Service Chief Vicki Christiansen. “The grants will also expand markets for cross-laminated timber in commercial and multi-family housing, which supports the important connection to healthy forests and manufacturing in rural communities.”Wood Innovations GrantsForest Service Wood Innovations Grant program awards for fiscal year 2021 include $8.9 million for 44 projects across 23 states and Puerto Rico. Twenty-one of the projects focus on mass timber and cross-laminated timber. These projects will support critical needs for expanding markets and species options (hemlock, ponderosa pine, white fir), improve structural performance, increase education and outreach, and promote design and construction of highly visible buildings.Seven of the projects will focus on developing affordable housing using mass timber as a major building component to support equity, economic opportunity, and climate change priorities. Additional projects focus on developing markets for emerging wood products like biochar and cellulose nanomaterials, and support installation of new wood energy systems. A complete list of Wood Innovations Grant recipients is available now on the Forest Service website.Community Wood GrantsForest Service Community Wood Grant program awards for fiscal year 2021 include $2.1 million to support six shovel-ready projects in six states. Initiated in the 2018 Farm Bill, the grant program helps to fund the costs of installing wood energy systems and building innovative wood product facilities in rural communities nationwide. Awardees will use locally sourced wood to reduce energy costs and fossil fuel use while supporting sustainable forest management.These grants also support innovative wood products manufacturing facilities that make products like building components and other products made from low-value or low-quality wood.Two of the Community Wood Grants are awarded to DCI Furniture, Inc. in New Hampshire and Arizona Log & Timber Works, LLC in Arizona. DCI Furniture will use the funds to install a new wood boiler to generate heat and electricity at a furniture plant. Arizona Log & Timber Words will use the funds to build a biochar plant, firewood kiln, and pole peeler to expand a forest products facility. A complete list of Community Wood Grant recipients is available now on the Forest Service website.Community Forest GrantsForest Service Community Forest Program awards for fiscal year 2021 include $4 million to support 10 projects across nine states. The grants include financial assistance to local governments, Indian tribes, and qualified nonprofit organizations to create, expand and enhance community owned and community managed forests. Project work will help communities acquire and conserve forests that provide public access and recreational opportunities, protect vital water supplies and wildlife habitat, serve as demonstration sites for private forest landowners, and provide economic benefits from timber and non-timber products.Since 2012, the program has supported 88 community-driven projects across 25 states and territories and permanently conserved more than 24,000 acres.Visit the Forest Service website for a complete list of projects and organizations receiving grants under the Community Forests Program.USDA touches the lives of all Americans each day in so many positive ways. In the Biden-Harris Administration, USDA is transforming America’s food system with a greater focus on more resilient local and regional food production, fairer markets for all producers, ensuring access to safe, healthy and nutritious food in all communities, building new markets and streams of income for farmers and producers using climate smart food and forestry practices, making historic investments in infrastructure and clean energy capabilities in rural America, and committing to equity across the Department by removing systemic barriers and building a workforce more representative of America.

Motorola said the devices and its WAVE connectivity software helped first responders maximize the LA-RICS system and raise public safety communications to a new level.With the Rose Parade demonstration, Motorola and its partner public safety agencies were able to prove that LA-RICS can be an essential element during large public events, where crowds could overwhelm commercial broadband networks.Motorola Solutions also used other applications during the parade including Compasscom Converged Services, which enhanced situational awareness capabilities by displaying the location of other public safety users on a map on the LEX L10 devices and at the command post.Motorola Solutions’ VML 750 broadband modems also streamed video wirelessly from vehicles and from fixed cameras back to command centers and broadband devices on the public safety network.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210224005014/en/ VueLife® “HP” Series Bag cell culture testing in Saint-Gobain Life Sciences Laboratory. (Photo: Business Wire) T cell based therapies are revolutionizing the approach to treating cancer. Harnessing the patient’s own immune system by isolating their T cells and engineering them to elicit an immune response is emerging as a preferred manufacturing practice. As the industry continues the advancement of these therapies, process efficiency becomes paramount to the success of delivering affordable therapies to patients. Building upon the VueLife ® family of fluorinated ethylene propylene (FEP) based cell culture bags, VueLife ® “HP” (high permeability) incorporates an innovative, patented laminate film layer that allows increased CO 2 and O 2 exchange versus other monolayer bag designs, yet maintains the scalability and process flexibility offered by a closed bag system. The increased permeability associated with the “HP” laminate layer was specifically designed for culturing cells requiring higher rates of respiration, such as T cells. “The development of this product was in direct response to the market need for a cost effective culture vessel that provides efficient cell expansion in a scalable, closed system,” said Benjamin Le Quere, General Manager for the Saint-Gobain Life Sciences Bioprocess Solutions business unit. “VueLife ® “HP” is an exciting result of the marrying of our expertise in material science with our knowledge in cell culture.” The entire family of VueLife ® cell culture bags utilize a common FEP fluid-contact layer. FEP creates an ideal environment for cell growth due to its gas permeability and liquid impermeability, while being biologically and chemically inert.

No wonder Emoov ran out of money! Quirk reveals £800k a month costs

first_imgEmoov’s former CEO Russell Quirk has revealed why his hybrid estate agency failed in a frank interview published over the weekend.In it Quirk reveals that investors’ need for rapid expansion, eye watering staff costs, huge digital marketing bills – that saw the company burn through £800,000 a month – and also being out-spent by Purplebricks all eventually brought the company down.“We were too ambitious and tried to grow too quickly,” he says.Quirk also reveals that Emoov spent £29 million of investor cash during its eight years, raised primarily from nine rounds of funding during the final four years of trading before going into administration just before Xmas.He also claims that the cost of hiring the kind of ‘chief’ or C-level staff that investors wanted to see on board meant the company ‘bled cash’.Marketing spend“The marketing approach that we had – and that the whole online/hybrid sector has – is ridiculous,” he says.Quirk has expanded on this elsewhere, explaining in a blog on Friday that the cost of gaining instructions from vendors via Google and Facebook cost the company a fortune.“In the first days of Emoov, the cost per click of the term ‘online estate agents’ was between £2 and £3,” he says.“Now, it’s around £50 and with many, many more companies slicing the pie.“Google Adwords went from returning us £2 for every £1 we spent in 2011 to a negative ROI of 30p returned for every £1 spent in 2018.”But Quirk is also clear that the arrival of Purplebricks and its huge initial £27 million launch budget, was a key factor in Emoov’s demise.“We were never second or third in terms of the money we raised, and we didn’t have the sugar daddy in the form of Neil Woodford that Purplebricks has or that HouseSimple has with Charles Dunstone or Yopa via DMGT and Savills,” he says.Watch the video in full.  Russell Quirk Emoov January 13, 2019Nigel LewisOne commentChris Arnold, Agency Negotiation Agency Negotiation 14th January 2019 at 6:16 amEMoov could have spent triple that amount and it still wouldn’t have made them successful.

She expressed her gratitude toward all the Sailors who have served aboard the historic frigate and spoke of the profound effect Constitution has had on so many of her visitors.After her address to the crew, Howard proceeded to answer several questions from Sailors concerning topics that were on their minds.USS Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, actively defended sea lanes against global threats from 1797 to 1855. Now a featured destination on Boston’s Freedom Trail, Constitution and her crew of U.S. Navy Sailors offer community outreach and education about the ship’s history and the importance of naval seapower to more than 500,000 visitors each year.[mappress]Press Release, October 03, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: Navalcenter_img Authorities View post tag: Tours View post tag: USS Constitution Vice Chief of Naval Operations (VCNO) Adm.
