Promote through traditional garments washing technology

You get always a gift in the encounter with the traditional leader or “Chiefs” in Zambia. Typically, the chiefs demand food for their people, things like cooking oil, maize. Occasionally, a Chief may require something else, like a blanket. Chiefs in rural Zambia their tribes distribute these items to poorer families. There is a deep sense of responsibility among the chiefs for their people and a strong sense of pride, to feel the chiefs, such as the quality of life improves.

When we started, work in the field of laundry in Zambia, we have cell phones and the merging of cloud based data use to engage government employees. We have worked through voluntary and district environmental health technicians. Built toilets and hand-washing stations have been added to, authorized government employees a better understanding how the technology and respond to the hygiene needs of the people within its jurisdiction.We had no idea we had dealt with only briefly.

“Why don’t we work with traditional leaders in this program?” Let us not, in the team the question, but it was probably a single vote for an idea that grew under the joint group. Rural Zambia is a very hierarchical society and status of concern. For operation in rural Zambia, health programs must obtain blessing the chefs work in the communities. We understand how to best engage chiefs to achieve better results in hygiene had to: more toilets built and used in the village settings.

Our first chiefdom orientation was with Chief Mumbwa, a man who had a hygiene agenda among its voters dangers for many years and was known for the trip home FAQ review latrines. Chief Mumbwa lives his presence commands attention and respect of the greatest world leaders modestly, as most traditional leaders in Zambia in a grass and mud hut with a thatched roof without making but. In our first chiefdom alignment, we brought together offer from each village in the Mumbwa chiefdom together and hygiene in real-time data on their villages. They learned how many households each village, as many of these households had latrines and how many of these latrines appropriate (with a smooth cleanable to ground, a lid on the hole and get out and wash your hands with SOAP or ash fly a station prevent) were.

Top factors to improve the nonprofit Board of Directors experience

Spencer Stuart, an international investment firm, recently asked 500 directors who sit on boards for profit to name the main factors that would improve their experience of Council reasonably. ( Their answers also resonate in the non-profit arena.

More strategic planning – most boards of directors should draw their members from a wider group of media than for-profit boards which can easily appoint qualified and professional frameworks. Non-profit organizations often represent a large community such as a town or a city. Their representatives are required to mirror wider demographic cuts.

To meet its obligation to strategic planning, any Council non-profit must have about a third of its directors who are qualified in strategic thinking and planning. Otherwise, the deliberations of the Council are likely to be reduced to minutiae and descriptive reports. Then the jury may sink into micro-management operations.Given the demographic diversity requirement NFP faces on board, this will be an ongoing challenge to recruit a team of managers who are very experienced in high level strategic planning.

More time for Discussion – monthly meetings are usually 1.5 hours. Some non-profit organizations structure even their quarterly meetings or every two months for the same amount of time. They rationalize that the rigorous debate took place at the Council meetings of the Committee. Rigorous debate can take place in an hour meeting several, but it must be a governance structure that facilitates the flow of information between the committees. (Example:

More effectively using volunteer:
Works Council non-profit is teamwork which must have meaning, but one must consider the individual behaviours. For some, it will make arrangements for the annual dinner; others will want to put the emphasis on strategic planning and policies.
The current requirements of employment and family led to ways of life volunteers compressed. As a result, several boards have administration not really knowing each other. Leave a few minutes at the end of each meeting of the directors to mention an important event in their lives. The process should provide a personal basis for directors to familiarize.

Bernie Sanders, he takes on Wall Street with the tax on Financial Transactions

Last week, Bernie Sanders, Senator from Vermont and only announced challenger to Hillary Clinton for the Democratic nomination, took a strong position for ordinary people. He proposed a tax on financial transactions (TTF), actually a Wall Street sales tax and use the revenue to make free public college tuition.

It is important to make College affordable to low-and middle-income families, the proposal of a TTF is a real game changer. There is no single policy that have anywhere near as much impact in the reform of the financial sector. A TTF would effectively impose a tax on stocks and other financial assets, so that speculators must pay a tax on their trades, just like people who buy clothes or shoes.

There are three points people should understand a TTF. The first is that it can trigger a huge amount of money. A TTF may be assessed at different rates.Sanders proposed following the tariff structure in a draft law submitted by the Member of the Congress of Minneapolis Keith Ellison. Eleven countries of the European Union are striving to implement a set of FTTS that would tax trades of more derivatives at the rate of 0.01% and the stock trades at a rate of 0.1%.

Extrapolating from a recent analysis of the European proposal, a tax comparable to the United States would raise more than $130 billion per year, or more than $1.5 trillion over the next decade. This is real money; He ridicules the sums that have dominated most of the budget debates in recent years. For example, the Republicans had attempted to pass the cuts to the program of food coupons of $40 billion over a decade. The amount that may be triggered by this proposal of FTT is more than 30 times greater.A TTF income could go far towards the reconstruction of infrastructure, improvement of the system of health care or pay for tuition fees, as suggested by Senator Sanders.

He has also worked on other large electric vehicles in the line of GM – Cadillac ELR (first luxury EV of a complete line of car) and the Chevrolet Spark EV, just to name a few.

How the experience of your life you did the leader today?
I always try to work in areas that push the limits of technology. Before becoming the Executive Engineer for electrified in GM vehicles, was the engineer for the propulsion system in the first generation Chevrolet Volt. My team worked on the development of a completely new propulsion system–something never before had seen the industry.We call system automatic seduction an extended-range electric vehicle. Automatic seduction system allows owners to use their vehicle as an electric car during their travel daily, shorter, however, they can travel hundreds of additional miles using a generator on board.

Before that, I worked on the team that developed other advanced propulsion technology: GM full size truck hybrid system. We were the first car manufacturer to make size hybrid trucks and SUVs.

Working on electric vehicles it is not something that someone normally expect of someone having a master’s degree in combustion. I began my career in race cars and motor vehicles traditional programs. Let’s be honest, this is not an area where you will see a lot of women. Thus, learned early on to ignore gender stereotypes and roll up his sleeve and do the best possible job that could. I left my career and work ethic speaks for itself. I also enjoy working with a team that is not afraid to push the limits when it comes to technology, quality and performance. At some point, you only have to be brave and jump and find out things.
