Honest And Ethical, Why Aloha Construction Won The BBB Torch Award

The Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics is a prestigious award that is tough to get, as their are six specific criteria that companies must meet to get it. The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics was started in 1996 to honor companies that demonstrate leadership, social responsibility, following of best practices, and hold extremely high standards when it comes to the their organizational ethics.

In 2017, a panel of 15 judges, representing the BBB that served Chicago and the Northern Illinois region, awarded this prestigious Torch Award to Aloha Construction because of the company’s decade-long history of quality and ethical work within the region and their focus on both their employees and the community that they work within. This award topped off an already impressive year for the company, as 2017 also had them pass an important milestone as they completed their 200,000th roofing job that year as well.

The award was well deserved, as Aloha Construction has a reputation of being a forward-thinking, ethical company. Internally, the company ensures that their employees are treated well. With competitive pay and benefits, they make sure their employees stay, offering them stability, and also, every year, Aloha Construction rewards their highest-performing employees with an all-expenses paid trip to Maui, Hawaii. Externally, the company not only makes sure that they treat their customers well, but also that they treat their community well.

On top of a 10-year Craftsmanship warranty for all their customers, that ensures that any damages will be paid for free of charge during that time, Aloha Construction also offers an annual free roof inspection that ensures that their customers know of any possible damages and that they’ll be able to get that damage repaired before the warranty runs out.

Beyond just supporting their customers, the company also supports the community by sponsoring multiple sports teams, have hosted a local Boys and Girl Club for their Youth of the Month event, and have done events such as a toy shopping spree for a family and a Chicago Bulls VIP ticket giveaway that resulted in a local child with a congenital heart disease, and his friends, being given a great opportunity to see the Bulls play.

Aloha Construction believes in not only being honest with both their employees and their customers, but also believes in helping the community. This led them to winning this prestigious award at the end of last year, and will most likely lead them to more accolades in the future.

Ordinary plastic doesn’t degrade for 1,000 years, so that plastic will be there long after modern society’s dead and gone.

Waiakea Water goes beyond caring about the environment. They also care about helping communities get back on their feet and helping struggling nations. As a water company, they provide clean water to several underdeveloped nations in Africa through a special program. For every liter of water they sell, they donate gallons to villages

As for the water itself, Waiakea Water is volcanic and the cleanest of any other bottled water company’s beverage. Their water is filtered through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock and is naturally infused with vitamins and minerals. People love having water that isn’t artificially produced in a factory.

Jed McCaleb makes World Altering Prediction

Jed McCaleb is experienced in a variety of different industries in the tech community. He has either created or worked on a variety of innovative technology for the internet and financial industries. With eDonkey, he created a system that made downloading a breeze. Mt. Gox, another one of his creations became the world’s first bitcoin exchange network. Now he is the CTO of Stellar, a blockchain company that McCaleb co-founded alongside Joyce Kim.

 

Stellar enables its customers to conduct international transactions at a cheaper cost than all competition. Stellar is able to accomplish this because of its decentralized structure. All of the transactions completed through Stellar are recorded on the machines of thousands of other users instead of a centralized server. This creates the safest, most secure method of transaction recording in history. Blockchain technology doesn’t only make transferring cash across borders cheaper, it does it faster than any other method available today.

 

This is the reason Jed McCaleb believes the future of cryptocurrency and financial institutions will one day be interwoven. Jed McCaleb made this bold prediction recently in an interview. McCaleb is able to made such an exciting prediction because he has been personally involved in the blockchain industry for years. Stellar was founded in 2014 and has grown exponentially since then.

“There will be a universal payments network that will operate,” Jed McCaleb prophesied in the interview. McCaleb says this system will utilize a public ledger and be able to work with cash from all over the world like euros, dollars, and more.

 

Stellar has been working for the past 4 years to accomplish this vision. Stellar is already implemented in IBM, one of the world’s biggest computer companies, but it is also implemented in countries all over Asia. Stellar has enabled these countries to participate in transactions that were previously impossible. People in these countries who were without financial services now even have access to things most people take for granted like savings and checking accounts.

Alex Pall Breathes Fresh Air into the Electronic Dance Music Genre with Proverbial Vocals

Just lately, the Chainsmokers published “Closer. ” Unlike their previous singles, the rising hit exhibits Andrew Taggart (part of a duo with Alex Pall) singing. Although an artist singing on their track seems to be self-evident, electronic music typically relies on songwriters and vocalists to add that soul. Pall and Taggart are working to reveal themselves more and more, spinning closeness into a style that is oftentimes empty of passion aside from the euphoric-like drops. The pair reviews their origins, the latest single, and how they strive to advance with their increasing audience.

Alex Pall mentioned that starting away he DJ-ed growing up as a pass-time for him in NYC. Ultimately, he appraised that dance music was engrossing his life, so he determined to give it a decent go. Drew was introduced to him by his manager and from then on they were burning the midnight oil so to speak, and now look where they are.

Taggart recalled sitting on the tour bus one night with Alex as they got the motivation for “Closer. ” Whilst listening to Dashboard Confessional and these nostalgic tracks, we kind of traveled back those emo days at age 14. “Damn, we miss songs like this.” Fuck it, why don’t write about the things which happen to all of us, announced Taggart. He actually remembered being in Syracuse with these extremely rich girls he was infatuated with. Soon after getting to know them and sleeping with them, the magic wore off. “I wanted to write a really unsexy sex song.”

Pall says that they’re forever changing their live show to fit with the expanding audience. Obviously now, with a song like “Closer” coming out, having Drew singing is drastically going to alter their performances. Usually, their music is live, which they’re satisfied oversteps the typical DJ. He talks to their visualist every day about creating new arrangements and crafting their own ideas. “It’s the sort of hustle where if you get satisfied somebody else takes your spot, ” Pall described. So for them, it’s about kissing the edge and giving people a breath of fresh air. “We make music for ourselves, and it’s really exciting that everyone else is enjoying it, ” concluded Pall.

Kamil Idris’ Thoughts on Copyright Laws for a Global Market

Kamil Idris is a Sudanese national and former Director General of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) from 1997 to 2008. He firmly believes in protecting intellectual property, and the benefits it brings to the spread of knowledge and ideas. Content creators, artists and inventors should be able to have their works protected without fear of losing ownership. This encourages innovation to spread far and wide beyond its borders. The digital revolution and the rise of the internet has made this a more pressing matter as information can spread by the click of a button.

In an interview with VentureOutsource, Dr. Idris outlines some of the challenges that come with economic globalization. Failure to protect intellectual property will lead to piracy and counterfeiting of products. To combat this, WIPO has a few treaties and programs in place. The WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Phonograms and Performances Treaty (WPPT) provide a framework and basic protection for owners of copyright work. In addition, WIPO provides legislative advice, training programs and workshops, so users are educated on matters dealing with copyright protection.

Dr. Kamil Idris has some advice for companies operating overseas. He advises them to be diligent when it comes to their intellectual property assets, as copyright laws can be different in other countries. He recommends companies choose international partners who they can trust. When making contracts, they should be written by a lawyer, and terms should be clear for both parties. In cases of dispute, the contract should lay out in detail how to proceed. By preparing in advance, companies can come to resolutions quicker and avoid future headaches.

While WIPO is an intergovernmental organization, Dr. Idris affirms they are a neutral party. They offer a platform for countries to voice their opinion and concerns. WIPO will give advice to countries that seek it, but ultimately it’s up to them to implement their own solutions.
