HBO hosts special premiere of ‘How To Die In Oregon’ on April 13 in Williston

first_img# # # As Vermont debates over whether or not to become the next state to pass the Death with Dignity Bill giving terminally ill patients the choice on ending their own lives, HBO will give a sneak preview of the HBO Documentary Film ‘HOW TO DIE IN OREGON’ to an invitation-only audience.

Puerto Rico moves forward with utility privatization

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享NBC News:Puerto Rico is officially moving to privatize and upgrade its outdated power grid exactly 9 months after it was flattened by Hurricane Maria.At a press conference on Wednesday, Governor Ricardo Rosselló signed into law the approved legislation that allows parts of the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority—known as PREPA in English and by the acronym AEE in Spanish—to be sold to private entities.The power authority has been a monopoly that practically abandoned maintenance of the electrical system’s infrastructure over the past decade. Over the last five years, the financially strapped entity was operating with a third of its employees, and these were mostly workers in charge of the grid’s maintenance.During his announcement, Rosselló described Puerto Rico’s current power system as an expensive, oil- dependent, polluting grid that’s three decades older than an average U.S. electrical utility. He said a combination of these factors have hurt economic development efforts in the island for years, so he hopes to change the pattern with the newly signed law. The governor explained that privatization efforts are taking place in two stages: power generation and distribution.“In terms of generation, we’re going to the market to either privatize it or develop a public-private partnership,” Rosselló said. In terms of the power distribution, he said that ideally “the assets would belong to the state and a consortium of companies would be handling the distribution.”According to Rosselló, the Puerto Rican government has 180 days to “stipulate public policy” that would guide PREPA’s privatization process and detail “the energy model we aspire to have in Puerto Rico”. Puerto Rico’s Legislature is expected to maintain control of the process that would establish and approve PREPA sales contracts. Contracts are set to be evaluated in 45 days or less. Once approved by both senators and representatives, board members of the island’s Authority of Public-Private Partnerships will have the final decision on how assets will be assigned and distributed.More: Puerto Rico’s new law moves to privatize power grid nine months after Hurricane Maria Puerto Rico moves forward with utility privatizationlast_img read more

Co-CEOs: Only odd from the outside

first_imgWorking together supports unusual but successful Karen BankstonWhen Bill Kiss or Jeff Shewfelt introduces himself at community and industry events as co-CEO of G & F Financial Group, “it’s always a conversation starter,” says Shewfelt. This unique arrangement took a little getting used to inside the $1.25 billion Burnaby, British Columbia, credit union, as well, but seems to be working just fine now. In the almost four years since they were named co-leaders in July 2011, the credit union has achieved solid growth and enviable employee engagement metrics.Kiss joined the organization as chief financial officer in 1996, and Shewfelt started in the branch network in 1991, working his way through branch management, loan processing, marketing, and HR; he was VP/sales and service when the CEO post opened. “We had a history of 15 years of working well together, and we both had extensive, but mutually exclusive, networks in the industry,” Kiss notes.So when the board launched a national search for a new chief executive, Kiss and Shewfelt threw their hats in the ring collectively. “We told the board we certainly understood the need to go outside the organization if they wanted to go in a different direction culturally and strategically. But if they wanted to move forward with our current strategy, we could do that without slowing things down,” Shewfelt says. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
