Upstart Never say die Salesforce Act 2

first_img Email Address Tato is gentle. Mostly she wants to tell me, in the kindest possible words, that we are “probably” not a good fit. Probably? Hard-wired for optimism, I grab at the possibility that we might be a supremely good fit. I play up what we do have in common — Mission Local’s workforce efforts, our education component, our focus on journalists of color. “But you’ve read all that in the backgrounder,” I add.I have not seen the backgrounder, she says.I envision my beautiful backgrounder untouched in its PDF, crying out for attention. Or am I projecting?Sure, if Tato reads it, she will change her mind.I get off the phone, dejected but unbroken. I compose a nice email, attach the backgrounder (again) and press send. Another PDF hurtles into the e-void.Earlier PostsUpstart: First thought best thought?

Certainly Ebony (yes, after all those videos, she’s become my BFF) will want to meet everyone, although I do wonder why we are doing this by telephone when SalesForce is only a BART stop away.A couple of hours before the phone call, I get an email. Ebony cannot make the meeting, but Tato Corcoran, her executive assistant, will be in on the call.

Aquarium closes because of mechanical issues

first_img According to a news release, the chiller controls building and habitat temperatures.Due to exceedingly high heat and humidity in area, the aquarium says rising building temperatures make normal operations unsafe for visitors. The aquariums animal care team is monitoring habitat water temperatures and implementing safety protocols as needed.Aquarium staff have identified the mechanical issues and repairs will begin as soon as possible.Related Article: Blockade Runner rebounds from Hurricane Florence, to reopen next monthThe staff says it makes sure to keep the animals cool even if temperatures rise.Aquarium Director Hap Fatzinger says each aquarium is a self-contained unit. He says they each have life support systems to help regulate them.“The impacts of water are very insulative,” Fatzinger said. “So unlike air, where air temperatures fluctuate quickly whether it’s hot or cold, water temperatures fluctuate very slowly.”Fatzinger says they also add extra chillers to tanks with cool water species.He also says most animals in the collection are used to temperate water cycles.“Most of the animals we have, except for our reptiles and our birds and amphibians and such, maintain the temperature of their surroundings, like the fish in this aquarium behind me,” he said “They are the temperature of the water. Most of the animals we have on display at the aquarium are native.”An official with the aquarium says they are still working on repairs. 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek  . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave Settings FORT FISHER, NC (WWAY) — The NC Aquarium at Fort Fisher closed to the public this morning because of mechanical issues with the main building chiller.The aquarium closed at 10:30 a.m.- Advertisement – last_img read more

€14000 compensation for permanent disability

first_img SharePrint WhatsApp FIMBank plc has been ordered to provide a compensation  of €14,052 o a security officer. This is following an incident where the security officer fell and injured himself in a construction site at said bank in Saint Julian’s. The officer has been verified to be suffering from a 4% permanent disability.The security officer told the Court how seven years ago, he was walking at the construction site, which had a lot of rubble lying around. There was also a two-storey drop which was covered solely by a thin plank of wood. The officer hurt his shoulder after falling in the midst of the rubble. A medical expert issued by the Court concluded that the officer is in fact suffering from a 4% permanent disability. Despite taking medication and going to therapy, he still feels pain in his shoulder. FIMBank responded that it should not be held liable as the officer was employed with another company. Moreover, the bank had also employed an external company to take preventive measures and check for safety and security at the construction site.The Court announced that safety needs to be ensured by the employer and the owner of the site. Furthermore, a risk evaluation had not been made, and the ground was cleared only after the accident occurred.  FIMBank has been ordered to pay €14,052 as compensation to the security officer.center_img <a href=’http://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/ck.php?n=ab2c8853&amp;cb={random}’ target=’_blank’><img src=’https://revive.newsbook.com.mt/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=97&amp;cb={random}&amp;n=ab2c8853&amp;ct0={clickurl_enc}’ border=’0′ alt=” /></a>last_img read more
