The Boomtown Alliance, as they’re called, is led by the community relations agency US Energy and Williston-based Marquis Metal Works. Jason Marmon, the community director at US Energy, said the goal of the alliance is to bring oil industry culture to the communities they are based in. Marmon said US Energy has already been putting on local events in North Dakota for the last five years, from fishing and golf tournaments to job fairs. “Williston is branded as Boomtown, USA, and I think Odessa is Boomtown, USA as well,” Marmon said. “There’s numerous companies that are operating in both areas that are fairly big and they’re mainly just a logo, so we’re kind of getting names with faces and have people more engaged in what’s going on.” Marmon said it’s about more than just bringing these oil companies together, but about building relationships outside of the industry. Their first shot at this in Odessa will be at their first Odessa Energy Cookout and Concert on March 1 at the Ector County Coliseum, 4201 Andrews Highway. The event kicks off at 2 p.m. with a job fair featuring numerous local oil and gas companies. At 4 p.m., there will be a barbecue cookout and contest with options of pork ribs, pulled pork, beef brisket and beef short ribs, and the event will cap off with a concert from 6 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., headlined by the country band BlackHawk. “Some people just think of it as a good time, but our sponsors tend to find it’s great development, great employee engagement, team building,” Marmon said. “It’s just a place outside of work where people get to know each other. That’s our goal.” All proceeds of the event go toward US Energy’s Western Sports Program, which sponsors athletes, and provides scholarships, workforce training and expanding partnerships. Marmon said they are planning to treat this like an annual event and hope to grow it even more next year, hopefully by featuring a Next Gen Bull Tiding, American Freestyle Bullfighting or Professional Bull Riding event next year. “There’s so many industrial parks and companies that are out of touch with the community, and the community is kind of out of touch with the innovations and new opportunities going on in the industry, so it kind of works both ways,” Marmon said.last_img read more

first_img Facebook Pinterest RALEIGH-DURHAM, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– The COVID-19 pandemic exposed a looming crisis in healthcare accessibility that has made organizations like Engagent Health increasingly important, and they have chosen Avaya (NYSE: AVYA) for the critical communications solutions that are dramatically improving access to care for millions of individuals across the U.S. For the 43 percent of adults aged 19 – 64 that had inadequate health insurance prior to the pandemic, and the millions of others who lost coverage as a result, Engagent Health is a vital resource for exploring options and finding their best plan. Engagent Health provides a cloud-based platform for government agencies and healthcare plan providers that streamlines onboarding, member acquisition and CRM. The company also provides outsourced agent support to help offset peak call times for health insurance plans.

Engagent Health is able to consolidate its fragmented contact center environment and align processes, resources and functions, and to leverage new ways to connect with customers when and how they want. The company chose Avaya OneCloud CCaaS (contact center as a service) for its contact center operations and Avaya’s UCaaS calling solution, Avaya Cloud Office™ by RingCentral, to enhance communications for its distributed workforce. The company also plans to use Avaya OneCloud™ CPaaS (communications platform as a service) to flexibly build services that enhance customer and business outcomes. Using Avaya OneCloud solutions, the company has been able to increase its conversion rate by 60 percent and increase care plan engagement by 80 percent compared to the average provider. “We couldn’t settle when it came to the contact center. We had seen Avaya’s recognitions for contact center and customer experience innovation over the years, and we knew they’d be able to take our operations to that next level,” said Austin Ifedirah, Founder and CEO at Engagent Health. “We need to take lessons from other industries and apply that to what is being done in healthcare, including critical areas of care like member acquisition and care plan engagement. Avaya is helping us move fast to deliver the kind of experiences that will put us ahead of the rest.” For example, as a contact center outsourcer responsible for offsetting high call volume, the company can use Avaya OneCloud CCaaS to leverage AI-enabled bots that provide 24/7 support, freeing agents to focus on customer interactions that require a human touch.

Employers get tough in targeting talent


first_imgEmployers are making recruitment procedures increasingly rigorous to makesure they employ only the best candidates. A survey by publisher GTI of 500 companies reveals online screening of jobapplicants has risen from 12 per cent in 2000 to 54 per cent in 2001. More than a quarter of employers used some form of psychometric test lastyear, up from 17 per cent the previous year. Graduate Recruitment Trends also shows employers are increasingly demandinggraduates demonstrate essential skills during job interviews. Four out of 10 companies used group exercises last year, a rise of 14 percent on the previous year, and the proportion of firms asking candidates togive presentations jumped 12 per cent to 37 per cent over the same period. Carl Gilleard, chief executive of the Association of Graduate Recruiters,said the study shows HR is under increasing pressure to select the rightcandidates in a difficult economic climate. “Graduate recruiters recognise the cost of recruitment and want to becertain the people they select have the capacity to be successful,” saidGilleard. “This is driven by a need to select people with the skills to make acontribution to business success quickly.” www.doctorjob.com/products Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

Microbial ecology of sea ice at a coastal Antarctic site:community composition, biomass and temporal change


first_imgThe coastal sea ice in the vicinity of Davis Station, Antarctica (68* 35′ S, 77* 58′ E), supported a diverse microbial community which varied in composition and biomass in response to increasing insolation and temperature during the austral summer. To understand more fully the fate of photosynthetically fixed carbon in sea ice, we examined the dynamics of community composition, biomass and production in autotrophs, heterotrophic protozoa and bacteria. The microbial community inhabiting the bottom few centimeters of land fast ice differed markedly from the interior communities in taxonomic composition and biomass and in the timing and fate of production. Total microbial biomass integrated throughout the ice depth declined during the season from a mean of 1150 mg C m-2 on 17 November to 628 mg C m-2 by 22 December. This largely reflected a decrease in the biomass of the bottom ice community which was dominated by the diatom Entomoneis spp. In contrast, the biomass of the interior ice community increased during summer and was dominated by autotrophic forms <20 um in length with a small dinoflagellate, Gymnodinium sp., becoming particularly abundant. Heterotrophic protozoa, composed of mainly nanoflagellate, euglenoid and dinoflagellate taxa, contributed between 16 and 19% of the total integrated microbial biomass in the interior ice and between 1 and 11% in the bottom ice. The biomass of heterotrophic protozoa increased throughout the ice depth during summer and estimated taxon-specific net growth rates ranged between 0.168 d-1 for a heterotrophic euglenoid and 0.05 d-1 for the heterotrophic nanoflagellate population over a 23 d period. Bacterial biomass varied by several orders of magnitude between ice depths mainly due to the occurrence of an abundant population of large epiphytic bacteria attached to Entomoneis spp. in the bottom ice. However, bacterial biomass contributed a similar proportion of between 4 and 16% of the total microbial biomass in both interior and bottom ice. The biomass of unattached bacteria increased throughout the ice depth during summer and exhibited an estimated net growth rate of 0.05 d-1. These data are used to quantify autotrophic production in bottom and interior communities, to estimate the flux of carbon to heterotrophs and to illustrate the complexity of the trophic interactions in coastal sea ice.last_img read more

Total SA: Another Oil Major Veers Into Renewables


first_imgMore: ($) Total becomes latest oil major to make a renewable play FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Financial Tribune:Oil major Total moved forward with its plan to expand in the renewable energy sector on Tuesday with investments in EREN RE and Greenflex.Total said it was buying a 23% stake in renewables company EREN RE for $285 million and added it could later acquire full control of the business, Reuters reported.It also announced the takeover of Greenflex, a French company specializing in finding ways to use energy more efficiently, which is forecasting 2017 revenues of more than $420 million. Total did not give a value for that deal.The company said the deals formed part of its strategy to expand its solar energy and wind power business.“EREN RE’s momentum will allow us to accelerate our growth in solar energy and move us into the wind power market. The agreement with EREN RE is a major step towards our objective of achieving 5gigawatts of installed capacity in five years,” said Philippe Sauquet, president of Total’s gas, renewables and power units, in a statement.Sauquet added Total wanted GreenFlex to be the “linchpin of its growth in the energy efficiency industry in Europe.”Europe’s biggest oil companies, which have been bruised by pressure on oil prices over the last two years, have been intensifying their push into renewable energy as they hunt for new sources of future revenue.Last year, Total’s startup ventures unit acquired a stake in wind turbines company United Wind, while Total also announced plans to install solar panels at 5,000 of its service stations.More: Total SA Steps Up Renewables Drive GreenFlex offers sustainability solutions to 600 clients worldwide and is expected to reach more than €350 million in revenues by the end of this year, according to a Total press release. The deal is expected to close sometime during the fourth quarter. The two deals align with Total’s strategy to address climate challenge and become a “responsible energy major,” Sauquet and Total chairman and CEO Patrick Pouyanné both said in separate statements. Paris-based EREN RE has a portfolio of 650 MW of renewable energy projects in operation or under construction and plans to install more than 3,000 MW worldwide by 2023, according to a Total press release. Total will invest €237.5 million once it receives regulatory approval and will have an option to fully acquire EREN RE after five years. SNL:Another oil major is investing heavily in renewable energy. French energy giant Total SA said on Sept. 19 that it is purchasing a 23% stake in renewable energy company EREN and acquiring energy efficiency company GreenFlex.

Trail Mix: On The Road With Lily & Madeleine


first_imgIndiana born sister duo Lily & Madeleine accidentally meandered into the folk music spotlight.Tabbed by Paste as “The Best of What’s Next” back in 2013, the sisters ended up in the studio with John Mellencamp and viewed on Reddit thousands of times based on the strength of their songwriting and homespun Youtube videos.Recognition and critical acclaim soon followed. While not anticipated, the sisters – still in their teens – were penning songs that certainly warranted the attention.2013 also saw the release of both an EP and the duo’s first full length record. A second record followed in 2014, and Lily & Madeleine released Keep It Together, their third long player, back in February on New West Records.September saw Lily & Madeleine sign on to tour across the country with folk icon Brett Dennen. The tour that began out in California will wind its way through the Southeast this month, including a stop in Asheville this weekend. A couple tickets are yours for the taking by answering the trivia question down below.I recently got to pepper Lily and Madeleine with questions about life on the road.BRO – No green room is complete without . . .Lily – A cheese plate!Madeleine – A dirty mirror and an assortment of tea bags.BRO – Favorite on stage libation?Madeleine – We drink room temperature water on stage, but if the venue has a fancy bar – and an open tab! – I like to try one of their cocktails.Lily – Yeah, I really just chug a ton of water on stage.BRO – Festival you have played that you really enjoyed as a fan?Lily – Bunbury Festival in Cincinnati! It was so fun. We go to see Kishi Bashi and Paramore perform.BRO – Who is the better on the road DJ?Madeleine – Lily puts in her headphones and shuts everyone out when we’re on the road. That’s totally fine with me. I usually use the aux cord to play true crime podcasts or the Savage Lovecast.Lily – I can’t spend all day talking to the two same people or I’ll go crazy! Plus, Madge doesn’t like rap much, which is usually what I listen to.BRO – Coolest thing you have ever bought at a gas station?Madeleine – Money’s tight on tour, but if I feel like splurging I’ll buy some green apple licorice, either the Australian kind or the Amish kind.BRO – More difficult – playing for ten people or one thousand people?Madeleine – Honestly, it’s more difficult play for ten people, in my opinion. I feel like I have to capture each person’s attention individually. It makes me feel more vulnerable on stage.Lily – It’s always most difficult for me to perform when there are people I know in the audience.BRO – Least favorite state to drive through?Madeleine – Kansas is somehow flatter and more boring than Indiana, but Illinois has all the tolls, which we just love.Lily – Yes! The tolls are so annoying!BRO – Favorite Brett Dennen song to hear live?Lily – I feel like my favorite song of his changes from week to week, but right now I really like hearing “Make You Crazy.”Madeleine – “Dancing At A Funeral,” from his album Lover Boy. It’s such a fun jam.Lily & Madeleine will be on tour with Brett Dennen for much of the rest of October. For information on dates and venues, please cruise on over to their website.Interested in catching Lily & Madeleine and Brett Dennen this Sunday at The Grey Eagle in Asheville?
