Sustainable Quote of the Day-

“I am an entrepreneur because it is me like my DNA.  I am that wherever I am and whatever I do. The choice to be this is not a choice but a decision to live as I am. The why of this is the same as asking me why I breath and is delivered as my purpose to serve.”

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

 

The news is out of the big acquisition. Aetna has acquired Human, Louisville, Kentucky founded by David A. Jones and the late Wendell Cherry for $35 billion.

The big news did not push up stock price. July 2nd Aetna closed at -3.41 (-2.65%). Humana and Aetna could be good for the customer an/or a systems slow down as records merge to create transparency.

Humana was founded as a nursing home company on August 18, 1961 by Jones and Cherry and now is leader in healthcare delivery including insurance.

Any merger or acquisition  is a transition that always requires cultural integration and technology platform synchronization for billing and system operability. 

The customer needs to be aware as they engage in services moving forward. As I say, stay tune for the  roll out. The roll out will either be a smooth transition or a slow series of hickups.

Donna Karan Walking Away Without Successor

Donna Karan Donna Karan

July 3, 2015

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

 

Donna Karan, fashion icon is stepping down to pursue philanthropy.  A fashion house designed and developed by a woman for women is leaving without a successor.

The leaving of any dynasty without a successor is akin to shutting the doors to a legacy.

NPR reported the transcript of the interview with Linda Wertheimer talking to Robin Givhan, fashion critic for The Washington Post, about Donna Karan’s decision to step down from Donna Karan International. “MONTAGNE: That’s Robin Givhan, fashion writer at The Washington Post. She says that last designer, Donna Karan, has been a beacon for women in an industry that Givhan says doesn’t always serve them well.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Now, Karan has announced she’s stepping away from her labels, Donna Karan New York and DKNY. While the DKNY brand will continue, the flagship label will be suspended. Givhan says that’s likely to disappoint women who’ve relied on the designer.

GIVHAN: Donna Karan really came on the fashion scene with this very interesting and very pragmatic proposal of seven easy pieces. It was a system for getting dressed that was aimed at professional women. And what made it unique was that it was efficient, it was tailored, but it was also sensual. It did not require a woman to leave her femininity and her sexuality at the door before she entered the workplace. And it was an unusual sensibility for the time, and it is one, in fact, that has informed designers even now.” Read More of interview

The ability to sustain success and drive a vision developed by the founder that is then led by another is very difficult.

Organizations are driven by the mind’s eye of a person or persons that take an idea an d turn it into a living organism. This leader is a creator of ideals, ideas and innovation that manage costs, risks and varied requirements to brand that is recognized.

I would have loved Karan to create a competition to find the next Karan to develop the house of Karan. This competition could lead to diversity of fashion for Karan and new thinking in design.

Karan’s ingenuity will be missed.  I am sure she will innovate philanthropy.

Another Train Tragedy 5000 Effected from Cincinnati to Georgia

July 3, 2015

LANDsds Sustainable Voice News

 

AP– An official in eastern Tennessee says smoke has stopped rising from the site where a CSX train car derailed and caught fire, forcing the evacuation of thousands of residents.

Blount County Mayor Ed Mitchell said shortly before 6 p.m. that he and others had visited the site and the smoke had stopped.

Earlier, officials said firefighters had been unable to get close to the site because of the heat. Mitchell said there were also concerns that the fumes contained cyanide, a byproduct of burning the chemical acrylonitrile, which was leaking from the train car.

Firefighters had been hosing down neighboring train cars to cool them and trying to move them away from the flames.

The CSX train car, bound from Cincinnati, Ohio, to Waycross, Georgia, derailed shortly before midnight Wednesday.

About 5,000 people have been evacuated from a mile-and-a-half radius of the site.

4:30 p.m.

A fire continues to burn at the site of a train derailment in eastern Tennessee after a CSX train car carrying a flammable and toxic substance derailed and caught fire, and officials say firefighters are trying to keep neighboring rail cars cool as they make efforts to move them away from the flames.

At a 4:30 p.m. news conference Thursday in Maryville, Tennessee, Craig Camuso, CSX regional vice president for state government affairs, said firefighters are getting as close to the damaged 24,000-gallon tank car as they can, given the heat.

Camuso said officials don’t know yet how much acrylonitrile is coming out of the tank and burning or how much remains inside.

Officials say acrylonitrile, a liquid, is a hazardous material used in multiple industrial processes including making plastics.

Kevin Eichinger, an on-scene coordinator with the federal Environmental Protection Agency, said air monitoring has begun, and so far it shows air quality “around background levels.”

About 5,000 people have been evacuated from a mile-and-a-half radius around the Wednesday night accident.

12:30 p.m.

Officials in Maryville, Tennessee, say an evacuation is expected to last at least until Friday, after a CSX train car carrying a flammable and toxic substance derailed and caught fire. They also asked nearby residents not to drink well water for now.

At a Thursday news conference, Blount County Mayor Ed Mitchell said CSX will provide bottled water to residents at a local middle school.

Maryville City Manager Greg McClain added that there’s no indication yet whether well water has been affected by the incident.

He also advised evacuees to make plans to be away from home at least for Thursday night.

About 5,000 people in the area were evacuated along with several businesses.

CSX says the train car that derailed was carrying acrylonitrile, a hazardous material used in multiple industrial processes including making plastics. Officials say the substance is flammable and is dangerous if inhaled.

9:10 a.m.

Several law enforcement officers were hospitalized after a CSX train car carrying a flammable substance derailed and caught fire in eastern Tennessee.

Blount County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Marian O’Briant says 10 law enforcement officers had to be taken to the hospital early Thursday because they breathed in fumes.

In a statement, CSX says the train car was carrying acrylonitrile, a hazardous material used in a variety of industrial processes including making plastics.

A CSX statement says the train that derailed and caught fire in eastern Tennessee was carrying acrylonitrile, a hazardous material used in a variety of industrial processes including making plastics.

7:30 a.m.

A fire official says about 5,000 people and several businesses are being evacuated in a 2-mile radius around a train derailment and fire in eastern Tennessee.

Blount County Fire Department Lt. Johnny Leatherwood says a call came in about the derailment at 11:50 p.m. Wednesday. At least one CSX train car carrying a flammable and toxic gas derailed and caught fire. Leatherwood says the fire was still burning at 6:05 a.m. Thursday.

He says firefighters and hazardous-materials crew are on the scene. He says six or seven officers had to be decontaminated but no deaths have been reported.

He could not say how many cars derailed or what substance they were carrying.

He says residents were notified by reverse 911 calls and door-to-door visits.

6:50 a.m.

Tennessee Emergency Management Agency spokesman Dean Flener says there have been no reports of fatalities after a CSX train carrying a flammable substance derailed and caught fire in eastern Tennessee.

Authorities say residents within a 1-mile radius of the derailment have been told to evacuate.

Flener says the situation is being handled locally but two state emergency management officials have been sent to Blount County in case the agency’s help is needed.

6:25 a.m.

An area high school has been set up as a shelter for residents who’ve had to evacuate after a train carrying a flammable gas derailed and caught fire in eastern Tennessee.

Authorities say the Red Cross is using Heritage High School in Maryville as a shelter for residents who have no other place to go.

Residents within a 1-mile radius of the train derailment have been told to evacuate.

———

6 a.m.

Authorities say at least one train car carrying a flammable and toxic gas has derailed and caught fire in eastern Tennessee, prompting an evacuation within a 1-mile radius.

WATE-TV reports the CSX train derailed in Blount County, south of Knoxville.

On its Facebook page, the Blount County Sheriff’s Office said early Thursday that the evacuations could last from 24 to 48 hours.

A shelter for residents has been set up at a high school.

Jobs Boost Needed Unemployment Down But Wages Flat

July 3, 2015

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

 

The U.S. unemployment numbers are reported. The unemployment rate is 5.3 percent.  It is reported unemployment has not been as good since 2008. The numbers do not account for the under employed or the non-employable.

There is a gain of 223,000 new  jobs.

The persistent problem is that wages are flat. Low wages that remain flat do not boost the economy or spur economic development.

Nice light news amid big topics. The big tweetathon on the wonderful food, guacamole. Twitter went a frenzie over adding peas to the well known dip and compliment.

Many raved no peas to guacamole- never. The President entered the conversation and agreed no peas, as well as presidential hopeful Jeb Bush.

I can’t see the need to add but I try it once!

Formal Clothing Can Make You Feel More Powerful

July 2, 2015

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

 

The formal clothes we wear has a lot to do with how we feel about ourselves. Formal clothing refers to business attire. Formal clothing makes people feel more powerful.

The study  of “How formal clothes can impact our psychology,” reported by CBS News states that what you wear can help your self-esteem.

“What we wear can be a form of self-expression, but how much do your clothes reveal about you? A recent study finds that wearing formal clothing can actually enhance your ability to think abstractly. Heidi Grant Halvorson, social psychologist and author of “No One Understands You and What To Do About It,” joins “CBS This Morning” to discuss the study.”

She commented that causal Friday’s may in fact reduce work productivity.

Halvorson shared that a study of people wearing a doctors coat assisted them in more critical thinking versus those who were told the coat was a painters coat.

What we wear is deeper than just self-expression.
