Why Hire A Shredding Service?

Why Hire A Shredding Service?

byadmin

Every business owner knows how important it is to properly dispose of documents containing proprietary information. When those hard copies are no longer needed, the most common approach is to shred them. While it is possible to invest money in shredding equipment, a better approach is to hire a professional to take care of this important task. Here are some of the benefits that come with hiring a Shredding Service.

Employees Are Free to Take Care of Other Tasks

On the surface, buying a shredder may seem like a good investment. After all, employees can take on the task of shredding documents if necessary. The thing to remember is that every minute an employee stands at the machine shredding printouts and other hard copies, that is a minute the employee could be working on something else. Rather than tying up employees with this type of task, have a Shredding Service destroy those unwanted documents. Doing so means all of the employees can devote themselves to tasks that help generate more business volume.

Secure Disposal

With a professional taking care of the shredding, there is no chance of the documents finding their way into the hands of competitors. This is because professional shredders typically use equipment that reduces the documents to extremely small pieces. Not all the shredders available at the local office supply house will produce the same results.

In addition, the team who arrives on the site are not likely to hold out a document and see who would be interested in purchasing it. Their goal is to maintain a good business relationship with the customer. That means making sure every document scheduled for shredding is completely destroyed.

Aiding the Recycling Effort

Not everyone realizes that shredding companies recycle those shredded documents. Once they are reduced to tiny bits, the paper can be turned in at a recycling center and used to create new paper products. As an alternative, the customer can keep the tiny shreds and use them as packing materials. With either approach, those old documents serve a purpose other than taking up space in a landfill.

Cloned cattle’s milk and meat seem safe, according to new study

Tuesday, April 12, 2005

A National Academy of Sciences report (.pdf) last year said that while the milk and meat from cloned animals would not likely make anyone sick, more research should be performed. Now, a new US-Japan study published in the April 11 online issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences says that milk and meat from cloned cattle does indeed appear to meet industry standards and appears to be safe for human consumption.

As BBC News reports, the scientists, led by Professor Jerry Yang from the University of Connecticut, compared the produce from two beef and four dairy clones, all derived from a single Holstein dairy cow and a single Japanese black bull, with the produce from normal animals of similar age and breed.

The meat was analysed against more than 100 physiological, tissue and cellular components, while the milk was analysed for protein, fat and other variables. No significant differences between the produce of cloned and normal cattle were found. Higher levels of fat and fatty acids were found in the cloned cow meat, but they still fell within beef industry standards.

While the study showed the cloned produce to be within the range approved for human consumption, the scientists stressed that the research was still in its early stages. Their findings, they said, provide “guidelines” for further research with larger numbers of clones from different genetic backgrounds.

Cloning livestock may one day increase yields by copying those animals that are especially productive and especially resistant to disease.

“The milking production levels in the US are three to four times higher than levels in China; maybe even five times or more compared to cows in India and some other countries,” Professor Jerry Yang told BBC News. “Therefore cloning could offer technology for duplicating superior farm animals. However, all the products from these cloned animals must be safe for human consumption. …and it is a major issue for scientists to provide a scientific basis for the data and information to address this question.”

As USA Today reports, there is currently no law governing the sale of meat or milk from the estimated 1,000 to 2,000 cloned farm animals in the USA. But since 2003, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has asked producers to voluntarily keep the meat and milk of these animals, and that of their offspring, out of the food supply.

Wired News reports that companies like ViaGen and Cyagra, which offer livestock-cloning services, have also been waiting for several years for a final say from the FDA.

“For the United States agricultural industry, (cloning) can reduce the number of cows necessary for milking,” said Jerry Yang “They can have a pleasant environment and produce even more milk.” He also said that cloning cattle from the United States, where genetic breeding is more advanced, could save developing countries 50 years of breeding.

The idea of cloning animals for human consumption is not without its critics. First, there are the welfare concerns, as most cloned animals do not make it to term before being born, and many of those that do are born deformed or prone to illness. The Humane Society of the United States has asked for a ban on milk and meat from clones for just this reason. Second, there is still the concern that healthy clones may have subtle defects that could make their food products unsafe to eat.

As the Washington Post reports, some critics are asking why it is necessary to clone cows that produce huge amounts of milk when surpluses, rather than shortages, are the main problem facing the U.S. dairy industry today.

Recalled pet food found to contain rat poison

Friday, March 23, 2007

In a press release earlier today, New York State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker, along with Dean of Cornell University’s College of Veterinary Medicine Donald F. Smith, confirmed that scientists at the New York State Food Laboratory identified Aminopterin as a toxin present in cat food samples from Menu Foods.

Menu Foods is the manufacturer of several brands of cat and dog food subject to a March 16, 2007 recall.

Aminopterin is a drug used in chemotherapy for its immunosuppressive properties and, in some areas outside the US, as a rat poison. Earlier reports stated that wheat gluten was a factor being investigated, and officials now state that the toxin would have come from Chinese wheat used in the pet food, where it is used for pest control. Investigators will not say that this is the only contaminant found in the recalled food, but knowing the identity of the toxin should assist veterinarians treating affected animals.

The Food Laboratory tested samples of cat food received from a toxicologist at the New York State Animal Health Diagnostic Center at Cornell University. The samples were found to contain the rodenticide at levels of at least 40 parts per million.

Commissioner Hooker stated, “We are pleased that the expertise of our New York State Food Laboratory was able to contribute to identifying the agent that caused numerous illnesses and deaths in dogs and cats across the nation.”

The press release suggests Aminopterin, a derivative of folic acid, can cause cancer and birth defects in humans and can cause kidney damage in dogs and cats. Aminopterin is not permitted for use in the United States.

The New York State Food Laboratory is part of the Federal Food Emergency Response Network (FERN) and as such, is capable of running a number of unique poison/toxin tests on food, including the test that identified Aminopterin.

Bucharest to be ‘rebranded’ for 800 million euro

Wednesday, March 2, 2005

Bucharest, Romania — The city centre of Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is set to get a major facelift due to a real estate project called Esplanada (The Esplanade), which will be constructed by TriGranit Development Corporation. The total investment in the project will be greater than 800 million euro and aims to build a modern commercial pedestrian area in downtown Bucharest, with several shopping malls, office buildings, hotels and dwellings. It will be the largest real estate program in Romania since the fall of Communism in 1989.

Bucharest is currently looking at possibilities to improve its appearance and rebrand itself as a lively, creative and vibrant city. Many initiatives have sprung up to improve the city, including the organisation of CowParade later this year. Additionally, the old town centre will be restored. Due to Romania’s current economic boom, several other major construction projects are taking place.

Bucharest City Hall has blocked traffic in the city center due both to the old town restoration and to the Esplanada project.

Memorial service held for model found dead in Missouri mansion

Friday, December 31, 2010

A memorial service was held Thursday for Adrienne Nicole Martin, the model found dead two weeks ago in the Missouri, US mansion of former Anheuser-Busch CEO August Busch IV. Martin, of Native American ethnicity, was 27 years old when she died of unknown causes, said investigators.

Martin, who had been dating the 46-year-old Busch for “the last several months” according to friends, was a native of Springfield. She had previously been married to 45-year-old doctor Kevin J. Martin until February 2009, when they divorced, and had joint custody of their eight-year-old son. Adrienne Martin had a profile on iStudio, a modeling website, where she said she wanted to become an art therapist. She also expressed a desire to “to do beer advertising” and work in the modeling industry. At the time of her death, Martin had been working toward a master’s degree in art therapy.

The memorial service for Martin was held at South Haven Baptist Church in Springfield. Busch was not among the estimated 100 people attending the service, nor was he mentioned during it. The only speaker was the church’s pastor, Scott Watson, who read letters from Martin’s friends. Her son and other relatives sat in the front row while she was remembered as a gifted artist and dedicated mother. Lacy Elet, one of Martin’s friends, later said Martin was happy that “her life was finally in order.” Her obituary in the Springfield News-Leader called Busch “the love of her life.” However, one of Martin’s uncles, Andy Eby, said after the service, “There are too many questions and not enough answers.”

Martin was found unconscious by Michael Jung, who worked at Busch’s mansion, at 12:30 p.m. local time (18:30 UTC) on December 19. At 1:12 p.m., Jung called emergency services, saying, “This girl’s just not waking up.” When asked if she was breathing, Jung responded with, “We don’t know. It’s dark back there. I’m gonna get a light and try and see.” At 1:26 p.m., Martin was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency workers. Law enforcement officials said the room was dark because there were blackout “curtains drawn in the bedroom.”

An autopsy on Martin’s body did not find any trauma-related injuries, and the official cause of death has not been established by investigators. A toxicology report, expected to take several weeks, will likely be used to determine the reason Martin died. Police said Martin’s body did not exhibit any “apparent signs of trauma or other indications of cause of death.” According to her ex-husband, Adrienne Martin had a rare heart condition, called Long QT syndrome, which can cause palpitations and sudden cardiac death. Kevin Martin said his ex-wife never sought medical advice on her condition and did not talk about it with friends.

Police said that Busch was home at the US$2 million mansion when Martin was discovered, and that the ongoing investigation is being handled by the Frontenac Police Department and the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office. Art Margulis, a lawyer for August Busch IV, said Martin was visiting the Huntleigh residence and that there is “absolutely nothing suspicious” surrounding her death.

Why It Is Important To Recycle Paper And Cardboard

Why It Is Important To Recycle Paper And Cardboard

Recycling is both important to us and our environment. It helps to have a positive impact on the world we live in. With the increasing number of industrial advancement and technological achievements, the different types of byproducts and waste have started to gather around in our world and that’s not even the worst part. The worst part is that the new lifestyle changes like the trend of fast food have started creating more waste, most of which isn’t biodegradable.

With the increasing prosperity in our world, people are now able to afford to buy more products to make their lifestyle more lavish. More importantly, the increasing population of the world means that there are more people to litter around. One such type of waste includes paper and cardboard waste. It mostly comprises of old corrugated waste, old magazines, and newspapers.

Now that the waste paper or cardboard has been gathered for recycling, it is transformed into many items we use in our daily life. You are shifting from a place you previously rented to some permanent residence. Your household contains fragile items which have a high probability of getting damaged unless transported with great care. One product this waste is recycled into is corrugated boxes, which can ensure the safety of your items.

Cardboard is a heavy duty material which is capable of recycling and cannot be discarded as a waste even after putting it to use. Corrugated cardboard has a great market potential for processing and manufacturing.

Corrugated cardboard has a great market potential for processing and manufacturing.

The United States EPA was once recorded saying that recycling the waste paper cause 35% less water pollution and 74% less air pollution than making virgin paper. Aside from the business aspect of the cardboard which is recycling, it is also good for the planet as it prevents out environment deterioration and also for your local community as it helps reduce pollution and conserve valuable resources. Plus, the employment opportunities are created and the people assigned receive revenue for that. The haulers collect the paper and the cardboard together and escort them to a facility where they are recycled into baled cardboard. This is sent to the paper industries for making them into products. One of the products is the corrugated boxes which hold great tensile strength.

Corrugated boxes are recognized as the most durable and utility boxes among all the other types of boxes. This type of box is considered a preferable choice of all the boxes if you have to send some personal or a fragile item to any part of the world. Their strength and durability reduces, if not removes, a great deal of worry that your item would be delivered in a thousand many pieces.

Corrugated boxes are sometimes made from the material obtained after recycling the paper and cardboard contents gathered by the haulers in the industries. Also known as the brown boxes, they are cost-effective and environment-friendly and made from the pulp, obtained from the pine tree extract. Handling pressure is their main purpose and so far, they are successful in coping with the situations faced.

Corrugated boxes are designed to be strong and withstand extreme pressure. Their strength enables them to be stacked and move through any means of transportation, keeping it safe and economical. It is actually made up of corrugated paper having rows of air columns, which actually provide the strength and the air in between acts as a cushion.

These corrugated boxes come in different sizes and shapes and you can use them according to the situation you are in. Most of the times, the shipping is done in bundles format, that is, boxes are delivered with the capability to handle diverse sizes, shapes and immense pressure from the diverse items being shipped along with them. Many companies do that.When you really think the idea of recycling, you begin to think that it is probably a way for payback to the Mother Nature.

The three R’s are always kept in mind while doing it: Reduce, Recycle and Reuse. This should be the basic idea when people deal with the recycling.

The landfills are the major source of environment pollution. All that waste being dumped in an open area is more dangerous than you think. The toxics sweeps through land and pollute the natural resources buried under the ground. The smell and the germs out of these landfills affect the health of people and put them in grave danger.

To sum it all up, there is a way to minimize the pollution to the environment and using minimum resources to make products like corrugated boxesand paper related stuff, and that is recycling the relevant waste. Why not get on with it?

Tunisian Prime Minister signs decree to ban face veils in public institutions, government offices

Monday, July 8, 2019

On Friday, Youssef Chahed, the Prime Minister of Tunisia, signed a government decree banning anyone wearing a niqab from entering a public institution or government offices. A niqab is a face-veil, which covers almost the entire face, and is commonly worn by Muslim females as a religious garment.

“Chahed signed a government decree that bars any person with an undisclosed face from access to public headquarters, administrations, institutions, for security reasons”, a government official said. This decision comes after a couple of suicide bombings took place in the country’s capital, Tunis, last month. Reportedly, two people were killed and at least eight people were injured in a suicide bombing that happened on June 27. According to eyewitness reports, the suicide bomber wore a face veil covering, the niqab. In the span of one week, at least three suicide bombings took place in Tunisia. The militant organisation, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, claimed responsibility for all three attacks.

Speaking to Agence France-Presse, the president of the Tunisian League for the Defence of Human Rights, Jamel Msallem, said, “We are for the freedom to dress, but today with the current situation and the terrorist threats in Tunisia and across the region we find justifications for this decision”. A member of the Tunisian Parliament, Samir Dilou said, “Tunisia is facing terrorist attacks, so every measure which is led by security motives is understandable”.

After an attack in the capital city in 2015, a bill was proposed in 2016 for banning the niqab, but was not passed. Souhail Alouini, a member of Parliament, said, “We proposed a bill in 2016 about this subject and it has still not been debated […] Maybe it is time now.”

Tunisia’s neighbouring Muslim-majority African countries including Algeria and Morocco have cited security concerns to impose bans on niqabs. Previously, another Islamic religious garment, the hijab, was banned in Tunisian public offices during Zine El Abidine Ben Ali’s Presidency. That ban was lifted in 2011.
