As We Move Forward With CTRMA

CTRMA is an independent government agency created to help the national government deal with mobility challenges that affect the transport sector in Central Texas. At the helm of this institution is Mike Heiligenstein who continues to lead Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority (CTRMA) in the capacity of Executive Director.

Under Mike’s leadership, CTRMA has experienced radical changes. Also, his efforts have helped transform the transport industry of central Texas.

Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is also tasked to improve maritime mobility, air travel, and transit services; something that this agency has excelled in since its creation.

Before the inception of CTRMA in 2002, there was a lot of traffic congestion in the region’s road networks primarily because these systems had not been planned and constructed to accommodate an ever increasing human population.

In the past years, infrastructure development has mainly been centered in the city and town centers within Texas, leaving the road networks in suburban areas dilapidated. However, CTRMA plans on improving the situation by increasing road capacity.

Besides, this transportation agency seeks to develop modern road systems with smart technology so as to allow for innovations like driverless automobiles to be used on Texas roads without necessarily posing a threat to the general public.

Also, there are plans to integrate ride-sharing applications into the transportation industry. For instance, a ridesharing app might allow you and a total stranger you share the same location with to utilize the same taxi.

The above move will not only ease traffic congestion but might also benefit commuters since they share costs with other people for the same journey. In the long run, traffic impedance will be a thing of the past especially in rural Texas where human population is rapidly increasing.

For CTRMA to achieve all these goals, it is working hand in hand with the physical planning department to see to it that zoning requirements remain flexible for infrastructure development. Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority also has great plans in store for parking spaces.

Since vertical parking is a norm today, CTRMA anticipates introducing multistoried facilities that reduce the headroom thus allowing the accommodation of more vehicles as you go vertically.

Therefore, CTRMA under Mike Heiligenstein is optimistic about the future, since it is presently taking contingency measures to ensure that the ever-increasing Texas population has adequate infrastructure to use.

With this in mind, then the region is less likely to encounter mobility challenges in the coming decade.

Andrew Taggart reminisced about seeing the craziest crowd in Canada and how much they love music.

The music they craft a lot of the time is how they are feeling at the moment and that is to explain for the happier and upbeat tone. The group specifically likes writing about millennials and the decisions that they can make – good or bad. The other member, Pall, notices that there is a lot going on in the world to write about and that the internet has made it much easier to do so. The web is in a bunch of their songs and on how it can make people’s lives better or worse. The duo likes to point to the irony of the internet ruining relationships and life in general. They then talk about their frequent contributor Emily Warren, who they really flow with as an artist. The duo describes it as easy to work with her and in getting her name out into the world.

The Later Years of Jim Larkin

During the later years of Irish union activist Jim Larkin, he still held the same passion for workers rights as he did during his younger years. Unfortunately, after returning to Europe after being deported from the United States for his “anarchic” activity, Jim Larkin was unable to express himself in a way that had inspired so many of his followers in the years past. Despite this, he still had a considerable amount of supporters who still saw him as the hero he once was.

One of the last major efforts made by Jim Larkin before his death was a fight against the trade union bill that was introduced in 1941. The British unions’ Irish branches, as well as smaller general unions, saw the bill as a threat to their rights. Unfortunately, despite Jim Larkin’s efforts, the bill was still able to pass. With its passing, Jim Larkins and those who supported stopping the bill applied and were admitted into the Labour Party. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://www.irishexaminer.com/lifestyle/artsfilmtv/books/the-definitive-biography-of-big-jim-larkin-372254.html and https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g186605-d4206658-Reviews-Jim_Larkin_Statue-Dublin_County_Dublin.html

On January 30, 1947, Jim Larkin passed away peacefully in his sleep at Meath Hospital.

When Jim Larkin the infamous trade unionist of Ireland passed thousands of people gathered to mourn his passing. He had dedicated the majority of his life to the rights of the impoverished workers of the world and despite making some mistakes he was loved and respected by many. The funeral of the now legendary Jim Larkin, like his life, was unlike others of his time.

Jim funeral was a public event of extreme solemnity. The procession that went from St. Mary’s Church to Glasnevin Cemetary was attended by thousands of people with an honor guard of 1,200 dockers being formed at Liberty Hall.

Jim Larkin’s 4 sons walked in unison during the funeral procession in a way that seemed choreographed in a way, though their individuality still managed to shine through. 2 of his sons, Denis and James Jr. became part of the Labour Part that their father held so dear. Additionally, in 1955, his son Denis became Dublin’s Lord Mayor, an accomplishment that certainly would have instilled a sense of pride in Jim Larkin.


OSI Industries & Its Expansive Global Reach

OSI Industries is one of America’s top 100 companies. This particular company has the means to provide a number of high-quality services such as processing, creating, distributing and managing. If you’re a client of OSI, then you have a wide selection of foods to choose from, including pot roast, fritters, pulled pork, turkey products, pasta, sauces, onions, fruit, beef patties, hotdogs, steak and numerous others. Though this company started out very small, it has grown at a dramatic rate ever since the 1970s. This is the timeframe of when the Kolschowski family decreased their day to day actions with the company. Sheldon Lavin, a finance-consulting guru, was awarded with the title of being the company’s new chief executive officer.

By focusing heavily on domestic and foreign expansion, OSI Industries has been experiencing record-breaking growth. Lavin is one of the main causes for fueling the company’s desire to grow. As of today, OSI has nearly 21,000 employees, and it has factories in an estimated 17 countries. Lavin has used his experience in accounting and in business to put this plan into motion. Thanks to owning a finance consulting firm in Chicago, he has been able to implement certain aspects into OSI. Back in 2016, OSI Industries spent a whopping $7.4 million for one of Tyson Foods’ factories in Chicago. This acquisition has benefited the company in a number of ways because it is located in close proximity to some of OSI’s other factories.

Flagship Europe is another great acquisition that the company has made, and this acquisition gives OSI Industries much more exposure in several European nations. Flagship Europe was rebranded as Creative Foods Europe in 2018. This name change won’t affect the company’s actual products, but it will give Creative Foods Europe a fresh start.

How Doe Deere Became a Makeup Mogul

Generation Z consumers everywhere have continuously raved about the intensely bold colors of Lime Crime, a vegan and cruelty-free cosmetics company based in Los Angeles, California. The company is owned and led by Doe Deere, a popular internet personality that turned her unique makeup ideas into a multi-million dollar company. Doe Deere was born and raised in a large city in Russia and moved to New York City by the time she turned 17 years old. She initially moved to further her education at the Fashion Institute of Technology and pursued courses for fashion design and illustration. She decided that it wasn’t for her and dropped out after several semesters.

 

Doe Deere soon started to design her own clothing and created adorable lolita style dresses, alternative t-shirts and fashionable accessories. Her clothing line Lime Crime was the first use of her brand name and the brand itself eventually became popularized after the second wave of her cosmetics had hit the shelves. Deere had developed entrepreneur tendencies when she was just 13 years old. She recalled that she would purchase rub-off tattoos really cheap while living in Russia and would sell them in her school at a very profitable price. She would show off the temporary tattoos on herself and made them look as cool as possible and surely enough, they sold out fast. Deere still adopts this marketing strategy before she releases any new item from Lime Crime’s beauty products.

 

Deere went into the makeup industry after experimenting with mixing her own makeup colors and displaying the finished look on her blog and social media pages. The lipstick colors were very unconventional and impossible to find by any other brand at the time. Now, nearly every mainstream brand has joined the alternative bandwagon and released their own wild lip colors. Thus, these huge makeup brands have still missed the mark when it comes to creativity and that is where Lime Crime truly shines. Lime Crime’s magical blue-hued Unicorn Lipstick became an instant hit and its pastel and opalescent liquid lip paints also quickly grew in popularity shortly after they launched.

 


Susan McGalla: Role Model to Women in the Business World

It is no secret that there are few women in higher-up leadership positions in most companies. Gender diversity has always been a problem in the workplace. The issue has often been referred to as the ‘glass ceiling’ meaning that there is only so far women are allowed to advance within an organization. The lack of gender diversity has negative effects on company performance.

Susan McGalla is no stranger to being the only women in upper management. She worked hard to rise to the rank of an executive at American Eagle, which was at the time dominated by men. She now works for the NFL Team the Pittsburgh Steelers as the Vice President of Business Strategy and Creative Development. There she has been successful and a role model to other women looking to advance their careers.

Leadership programs for women are not the ideal solution to increasing gender diversity in upper management. Instead, initiating executive sponsorships is a better option. In these instances, women would get an advocate to aid them in receiving more projects, promotions, and training.

There needs to be an active solution to equalizing the gender diversity of the business world. Susan McGalla is the very definition of a success story for women. She worked tirelessly often at the disadvantage of being the only female executive in order to prove herself to her peers. McGalla continued to impress the Pittsburgh Steelers with her part in a triumphant advertising campaign to increase sales of team apparel. Other women can look to Susan McGalla as a role model of how to thrive in a very competitive industry as a gender minority.

Shervin Pishevar Uses Tweets To Make Predictions For 21 Hours Straight

Shervin Pishevar has embarked on a tweet storm lasting for 21 hours, but his intention remains unclear. This is the first big public statement he has made since he left Sherpa Capital. Once of his predictions stated a drop in Bitcoin from $2,000 to $5,000 would occur, followed by a slow increase. Shervin Pishevar has never been shy about using a lot of words so there was really no surprise when the Uber investor and venture capitalist embarked on a Tweet storm encompassing fifty messages earlier in the week.

Shervin Pishevar included a wide variety of subjects in his Tweet fest such as SpaceX immigration, bonds and bitcoin. It is difficult to find meaning in his latest diatribe. He began by talking about the promise he made to explain the financial storm he believes is approaching. This included the stock market dropping by 6,000 points during the upcoming months. He paused his Tweeting long enough to have dinner and then spoke of the impending death of Silicon Valley. After continuing for a full 21 hours, his storm gained significance because he has not been in the limelight since December 14th. This was when Twitter posted his resignation letter explaining that the allegations of sexual harassment were interfering with the success of Sherpa Capital.

Shervin Pishevar stated his current opponents were trying to settle scores not relating to Sherpa Capital in any way. He also wrote about his refusal to enable his opponents to bring his family into the brawl with him. The reason Shervin Pishevar decided to come back remains unclear. His return may or may not be connected to the lawsuit he filed accusing Definers Public Affairs of perpetrating a smear campaign directed against him. Despite his motivations, he has painted a bleak picture regarding the future for the United States economy. He made numerous predications including a drop in the markets of 6,000 points, the effects of bond volatility impacting the other markets, the end of California being the center of tech culture and innovation, the continuation of the bitcoin crash and China trumping the United States regarding infrastructure.

Alex Pall is one of the band members of the two-person group called The Chainsmokers. The popular musician has a different career long before he became a part of the duo. He was working in New York City as an assistant inside an old art gallery, and he would sometimes do part-time jobs inside the clubs at night.
