Fresh and Easy and Hill PHOENIX Collaborate on GreenChill Platinum Store in Folsom, CA - March 15, 2012 by timemanagementmum

FOLSOM, Calif., March 14, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Hill PHOENIX, a designer and manufacturer of commercial refrigeration equipment, and Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market are pleased to announce the grand opening of a new GreenChill Platinum Award-winning Fresh & Easy store in Folsom, California. GreenChill is an E.P.A. Partnership with food retailers to reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.

A typical supermarket in the U.S. uses approximately 3,500 pounds of refrigerant. The Fresh & Easy Folsom store uses just 70 pounds – a 98 percent reduction that earned it GreenChill’s highest award.

“Environmental responsibility is part of our DNA. We’ve made a commitment to invest in sustainable technologies from the start,” said Steve Hagen, director of procurement and engineering at Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market. “Using new natural refrigerants puts Fresh & Easy on the forefront of sustainability our industry and ultimately makes these emerging technologies more cost effective for everyone.”

“The Folsom store is a fantastic example of the innovation that can be accomplished when government works together with businesses in a voluntary partnership to protect the environment and save money at the same time,” said Deborah Jordan, Director of EPA Region 9′s Air Division. “We are proud to be involved in this very successful project.”

Fresh & Easy’s Folsom store features Hill PHOENIX Second Nature(R) medium temperature fixtures and walk-ins running on glycol and low temperature fixtures and walk-ins running on C02. Glycol and C02 are environmentally friendly, natural alternatives to harmful HFC refrigerants.

“Fresh & Easy selected a Second Nature Compact Chiller system that effectively eliminates all HFCs from the store’s refrigeration system by using medium temperature glycol to condense the low temperature CO2. This is typically achieved with an HFC refrigerant,” explained Henry Pellerin, director, marketing programs for Hill PHOENIX. “The Folsom Fresh & Easy is the only store in the nation, to date, that uses this innovative type of system.”

Hill PHOENIX Second Nature Compact Chiller (SNCC) is the most environmentally friendly system available in the industry today. SNCC utilizes a unique heat exchanger technology that allows engineers to design a typical medium temperature supermarket system with the lowest refrigeration charge of any commercial refrigeration system on the market. As a result, retailers like Fresh & Easy can achieve a sustainable zero leak rate. SNCC is comprised of multiple compact chiller modules. Each module is a standalone refrigeration system and is completely factory-assembled, charged and run-tested prior to delivery.

GreenChill’s Store Certification Program is the only certification program in the nation that focuses on greener refrigeration. The Program’s chief goal is to reduce refrigerant emissions from supermarkets that damage the Earth’s protective ozone layer and contribute to global warming. A pound of leaked refrigerant can cause more global warming than 2000-4000 pounds of carbon dioxide.

About Hill PHOENIX:
Hill PHOENIX Inc., a Dover Company, is based in Conyers, Ga. The company designs and manufactures commercial refrigerated display cases and specialty products, refrigeration systems, integrated power distribution systems and walk-in coolers and freezers.

Fresh & Easy opened its first stores in Southern California, Arizona and Nevada in 2007 and set out to change the way consumers shop by making fresh meals and groceries more affordable and accessible. The company expanded into Northern California last year and now has more than 185 stores.

On average, Fresh & Easy stores use 30 percent less energy than a typical supermarket, which helps the environment and saves customers money.

The company also recycles or reuses all of its display packaging, sending the majority back through its distribution center.

Embracing New Orleans Soul with Style – NOLA Shirts - March 7, 2012 by timemanagementmum

NOLA Shirts LLCNEW ORLEANS, La., March 7, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — In the aftermath of the recent Mardi Gras madness that engulfs New Orleans this time of the year, one man’s hope to bring awareness to the city’s unique nature and spirit has emerged in the public eye, and caught national attention. A few days following Hurricane Katrina’s impact on the city, Billy Schell, Owner/CEO of NOLA Shirts, created a brand embroidered on high quality shirts, hats, and apparel with some of the more popular icons of the city – the Fleur De Lis, the Pelican and the Mardi Gras Crown.

He wanted the shirts and apparel to allow those who left the city, or had visited the city to show their support for the recovery, and for the spirit of the people in midst of rebuilding their lives.

He sold these products by hand, going to various local shops and store owners, asking them to join in the effort, and help him promote the idea. The idea caught on, and several local locations began carrying the apparel, along Magazine Street, and Prytania Street, as well as in Metairie. He also was happy to his shirts become a regular item at the Hilton at New Orleans Airport, a very busy location during the recovery and rebuilding process.

When the BP Horizon Deepwater oil spill disaster also struck a staggering blow to New Orleans, Billy included a new symbol in his apparel – the Pelican. This symbol, along with the national concern about the oil’s effect on the wetlands, drew more attention to the area, and NOLA Shirts became a rallying point for many peoples concern and pride in the New Orleans community. Former alumni, and past residents who had been forced to leave alike, began wearing the shirts, to show their support, and the love for the city’s unique way of life, and attitude towards the continued recovery efforts.

This became even more apparent when New Orleans resident, and political contributor for CNN, James Carville, often referred to as the “Ragin’ Cajun” appeared on John King’s television program sporting a NOLA shirt. Since then, several celebrities and supporters of the New Orleans soul and spirit have been spotted sporting the NOLA Shirts apparel – both in the city and abroad. Recently, Will Ferrell, who was in the Mardi Gras Celebration this year as King Bacchus, and Matthew McConaughey were provided with NOLA shirts apparel as an appreciation for participating in the New Orleans festivities.

“We wanted to give the people who have experience the vibrant culture and soul of the city of New Orleans a way to show support and appreciation of the New Orleans way of life. New Orleans truly is a city like no other in the United States – known for its unique architecture, laissez-faire attitude, amazing foods, and historic tradition that exist no where else,” said Billy Schell, owner of NOLA Shirts. “There is a magical aspect to New Orleans; once you have experienced it, you realize how special the city truly is – and this clothing line was setup to allow people to show their love of it.”

NOLA Shirts continues to provide awareness for the Crescent City – through its hardships, and its celebrations. The subtle message of pride and hope have helped it to become a quiet success story in the midst of all of the turmoil, and the future continues to look brighter – both for the city, and its recovery from recent times, and for its residents – like Billy Schell, who decided that even in the worst of times, showing some civic pride and his love for the Crescent city, he would create a way to allow others to embrace New Orleans soul and spirit – with style.

About NOLA Shirts LLC:

Video: Creative Presentation Skills Training - March 2, 2012 by timemanagementmum

Presentation skills training video recorded at Speaking Out

If you’re a creative professional, it’s not enough to have sparkling ideas, or even to turn them into amazing work.

At some point you have to stand up in front of an audience and persuade them of the value of your creativity.

Many people shy away from presenting, or grit their teeth and try to get through it. But if you do this, you’re missing an opportunity to make a big impact – and have a lot of fun in the process.

My own attitude to presentations was transformed when I started to treat each presentation as a creative project in its own right – not just an add-on to the ‘real’ work. When did this, I found myself enjoying the whole process, and actually looking forward to presenting.

And the ability to deliver a range of different types of presentation – training workshops, conference speeches, new business pitches, webinars, e-learning modules and a TV documentary – has opened countless doors in my career.

In this video, recorded at a Speaking Out event at the University of the Arts, London, I explain the principles of Creative Presentation Skills, including:

  • The power of prehistoric PowerPoint
  • Why presenting is in our DNA
  • What we have forgotten about presenting
  • How to structure a presentation so that you (and your audience) remember it
  • The magic of storytelling
  • Why you should forget about trying to be confident

(If you’re reading via email, click here to see the video.)

I was invited to speak by Laura North who runs Speaking Out, and is doing a fantastic job of help people become more comfortable and creative at presenting.

If you’d like me to speak or run a workshop on Creative Presentation Skills for your organisation, here are the details.

How Do You Feel About Presentations?

Is presenting something you enjoy or dread?

Which live speakers have you most enjoyed listening to? Why?

Any tips for injecting a little creativity into a presentation?
