Ultramotive Launches EarthSafe Air Power System

first_imgUltramotive Corporation, a Bethel-based company in the field of pressurized dispensing technology, recently launched the environmentally-friendly EarthSafe Air Power System, a breakthrough replacement for traditional aerosol cans, as part of its latest global environmental initiative.The EarthSafe Air Power System uses compressed air as a propellant instead of the customary hydrocarbon gases. The System, the brainchild of Ultramotive founder and President Chris Scheindel, features an innovative valve system, Delbar Piston, and EarthSafe Sealing Plug. Where traditional aerosol cans contained a mixture of the product and hydrocarbon gases sprayed indiscriminately through the nozzle, EarthSafe Air Power System separates the product from the air pressure below that propels it through an innovative valve system.It is an inexpensive packaging option for the industry in a country where hydrocarbons contribute to air pollution and linger in the environment.last_img read more

Voters to Pick Replacement for Nassau Pol Denenberg Tuesday

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Voters in Nassau County’s 19th Legislative District will cast their ballots Tuesday in a special election to fill the seat left vacant by former Legis. David Denenberg (D-Merrick), who recently resigned.The candidates include Rita Kestenbaum, 56, who’s running on the Democratic and Working Families party lines, and Steven Rhoads, 46, who has the Republican, Conservative and Independence party lines as well as the Tax Revolt party designation. Both are from Bellmore.Kestenbaum is a former member of the Hempstead Town Board, who became a gun control activist in 2007 after her 20-year-old daughter was shot to death on the night of her birthday outside her off-campus apartment in Tempe, Arizona, by a disturbed young man who then turned the gun on himself. She later set up a foundation and has worked closely with the Long Island Crisis Center.Rhoads is a personal injury attorney who previously twice tried to unseat Denenberg. If Rhoads wins, Republicans would need to gain just another seat in the Nassau Legislature to control a super majority of 13 votes—they now have 10 of the 19 legislative seats. That margin would enable the GOP to approve borrowing measures without needing Democratic support.In the district, 41 percent of the 54,355 registered voters are Republicans (22,304 voters) and 31 percent are Democrats (16,708 voters). District 19 stretches from Seaford to south Freeport up to North Merrick and North Wantagh.Last month, Republican James D. Kennedy, the son-in-law of the late Presiding Officer Peter Schmitt (R-Massapequa), handily beat Democrat Joseph Stufano in a special election to fill the 12th Nassau County legislative district seat left vacant when one-term Legis. Michael Venditto (R-Massapequa), the son of Oyster Bay Town Supervisor John Venditto, was elected in November to fill the 8th New York State Senate seat, which former Sen. Charles Fuschillo (R-Merrick) vacated a year prior.Denenberg had resigned after pleading guilty to charging more than $2 million worth of legal services over eight years that he never provided.A third special election will be held on March 31 in Suffolk’s 12th Legislative District to fill the seat held by former Legis. John M. Kennedy Jr. (R-Nesconset), who won his bid to become Suffolk County comptroller in November. Kennedy’s 58-year-old wife, Leslie, a longtime aide who ran her husband’s office, will be running for the seat herself.Kennedy’s Democratic challenger, Deborah Monaco, 55, is reportedly not going to run “an active campaign,” according to Suffolk County Democratic Chairman Rich Schaffer, due to time constraints and other factors. She has been the secretary of the Suffolk Democratic Committee and has a job at the Suffolk Board of Elections. Republicans outnumber Democrats in this district, too.—With Spencer Rumseylast_img read more

Ndamukong Suh unlikely to reunite with Rams, GM says

first_imgThe five-time Pro Bowl and three-time All-Pro player failed to make a significant impact playing alongside Defensive Player of the Year Aaron Donald, logging just 4 1/2 sacks and four tackles for loss during the regular season. Cowboys, Rams to play preseason game in Hawaii Rams ‘haven’t really gotten into’ extension talks with Jared Goff, Sean McVay says Added Snead: “Based on the fact that from our budgetary constraints this year, it probably doesn’t fit in his desires.”Suh, 32, signed a one-year deal worth $14 million with the Rams last March after a two-year stint in Miami. Before joining the Dolphins, he had spent his entire career with the Lions after Detroit drafted him No. 2 overall in 2010. Related News Ndamukong Suh could soon be moving on from Los Angeles.While speaking Tuesday at the NFL meetings in Arizona, Rams general manager Les Snead told ESPN the re-signing of the defensive tackle is “pretty much guaranteed to be off the table.”last_img read more

PRIESTS LAUNCH SCATHING ATTACK OVER ABUSE AUDITS

first_imgTHE organisation representing Catholic priests has hit back at how innocent clergy have been treated – and accused some bishops of being more interested in media perception.The Association of Catholic Priests said it welcomed audits of six dioceses – including Raphoe and Derry – from the National Board for Safeguarding Children.But the organisation went on: “We would like to draw attention to one statistic that has been revealed by the report. In all, allegations were made against 85 priests. Eight of those were convicted of a criminal offence. In some other cases a settlement was made with the alleged victim. “But that still leaves a substantial number of priests against whom no inappropriate behaviour was criminally or civilly established. But what we can say for certain is that each of these was immediately removed from ministry, most in a public way that brought shame and disgrace on them and on their families, and often caused great upset in their parish communities.“Many of them have remained in a limbo situation for years, asserting their innocence but having no way of clearing their name. To quote one expert legal opinion, the way they have been treated “offends the very basic and fundamental principles of natural justice and fair procedures”.“We believe that many bishops, in their great desire to implement the child protection guidelines, and to be seen by the media to be doing so, have lost sight of the rights and entitlements of priests to their good name and reputation.”The organisation added: “We would wish to balance this debate by asserting this right, and stating that in attempting to make right the wrong done to victims of abuse another group of people – innocent priests whose reputations, character and lives have become collaterally and often permanently damaged without any possibility of redress – may be victimised in a different way. “This concern, we believe, should be a constituent part of the ongoing debate.”© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily Sell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comPRIESTS LAUNCH SCATHING ATTACK OVER ABUSE AUDITS was last modified: December 1st, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:abuse auditassociation of catholic priestsDerryRaphoelast_img read more
