Indiantown, FL (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Government support of alternative fuel and sustainable energy is critical for American biodiesel fuel producers, but more importantly our future generations as well. President Barack Obama agreed with this sentiment during his 2013 Inaugural address. While addressing thousands yesterday on Capitol Hill to lay the ground work for his next four years in office, Pres. Obama made a strong commitment to the pursuit of sustainable energy. He declared a failure to respond to the threats of climate change would be a betrayal to future generations.
President Obama continued saying, The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition. We must lead it. And he is correct. His support comes as the American Petroleum Institute (API), a national trade organization that represents Americas oil and natural gas industry, has fledged a full media and political attack against the biodiesel industry. According to Biofuels Digest during their January 16th media conference API deemed the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) unworkable and stated that they would like to see complete repeal of the RFS.
The United States Environmental Protections Agency instated the RFS mandate to ensure transportation fuel sold in the United States contains at least a minimum volume of renewable fuel. The elimination of the RFS mandate would also remove the Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs) which are attached to every gallon of green fuel and add a subsidy market value. Genuine Bio-Fuel Inc. (GBF), Executive Vice President Jeff Longo insists, Without RINs and the RFS mandate, there is no biodiesel industry.
Longo hopes the Presidents vocal support will channel into more long-term legislative change to support the growth of the industry. Longo believes, The cost of not acting to preserve our natural resources is far to great. Policy needs to reflect the importance of biodiesel production as well as production of other alternative energy sources and new technologies.
Longo appreciates the Presidents candidness and agrees the changes are not going to come easy, but they need to be made. Because in the Presidents own words, Thats how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure our forests and waterways, our crop lands and snow-capped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God.

2012 State of St. Louis Workforce Report reveals skills gap, ways to overcome challenges
Although the employment rate has improved in the St. Louis region since 2010, a skills gap in the workforce remains one of the top challenges for the local economy, according to the fourth annual State of St. Louis Workforce Report developed by St. Louis Community College. This morning, a panel of local employers discussed how theyre identifying ideal job applicants and finding ways to overcome the skills gap to fill open positions.
Employers must play a role in training new and existing workers with the skills needed to compete in the fast-paced global economy. In this years report, 76 percent of employers said they hired less experienced workers and trained them with the skills they needed, said Rod Nunn, vice chancellor for economic development and workforce solutions for St. Louis Community College, who also moderated todays panel discussion. The skills gap is one of the regions most important economic challenges, and I was pleased to hear from four employers today who are making important investments to get the right employees, with the right skills, in the right positions.
During todays discussion attended by more than 400 business, education and civic leaders representatives from The Boeing Company, Gateway EDI, BJC Healthcare and Gallus BioPharmaceuticals shared some of their talent acquisition and development solutions, including:
Offering tuition remission and paid training benefits for current employees so they advance their skills and move up within the organization.
Creating opportunities for professional development and a culture of continuous learning to increase employee engagement so workers stay with the company long-term.
Developing peer-to-peer and mentor training programs to encourage the sharing of best practices in the company and reinforce a culture of continuous learning.
Reaching out to students throughout different levels of education to encourage them to pursue careers in growth fields like healthcare and engineering.
When we have a position to fill, we will wait for the right candidate, Rebecca Shocklee, director of human resources for Gallus BioPharmaceuticals, said during todays panel. We have a rigorous screening process, and 99 percent of the time we feel we do a solid job of predicting performance.
According to this years State of St. Louis Workforce Report, one in three St. Louis area companies anticipates an increase in employment levels in the near term. However, those employers continue to find mismatches between job applicant skills and the job requirements for open positions. Many applicants arent work-ready, lacking the personal effectiveness competencies often described as soft skills needed to succeed in the modern work environment.
According to report presenter Alan Spell, economic and workforce research manager for Missouri Economic Research and Information Center, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported a sharp rise in job openings for June. Spell went on to say that skill mismatches prevented many of those jobs from being quickly filled.
Where we find the skills gap most often is when candidates are coming to us without the necessary life skills or soft skills; often its the inability to communicate, said panelist JoAnn Shaw, vice president and chief learning officer for BJC HealthCare. If a person is dealing with patient or a patients family and cannot communicate, thats a problem.
To evaluate all factors affecting the regions workforce, St. Louis Community College conducted four phases of research: an environmental scan of the St. Louis economy, an employer survey with more than 1,200 businesses in the region, six in-depth case studies and an analysis of surveys and focus groups with community college graduates. Key findings from this years report, which can be downloaded at http://www.stlcc.edu/STLworkforce, include:
More than half of employers said recent hires lacked soft skills, specifically communication or interpersonal skills; work ethic; thinking and problem solving; and general knowledge of business or industry.
Soft skills are just as important as technical skills, said panelist Dave Cheli, chief information officer for Gateway EDI. Sometimes finding both of those in the same candidate is difficult. Weve made significant investments in internal training and formal mentoring programs, which has created a culture of continuous learning at our company.
Other key findings included:
www.infowars.com Who is Barack Obama? The question remains contentious, but a new smoking gun piece of evidence makes certain that so-called “birthers” won’t be going anywhere. It has now emerged that Barack Obama’s own authorized biography while president of the Harvard Law Review says he was “born in Kenya” and raised in both Indonesia and Hawaii. This is prima facie evidence that the public has been sold on a big lie. It further only reinforces the mountains of related evidence that has surfaced, not the least of which is Michele Obama’s own public statements about their returning to Barack’s “homeland” in Africa to conduct a public AIDS test stunt. Wow! Breitbart.com broke the story as part of their “vetting” series that has coincided with the untimely death of Andrew Breitbart himself.
David Maraniss’ new biography of President Obama focuses on the president as a young man, living in New York and Chicago, and relies heavily on the diaries, letters, and memories of Mr. Obama’s old girlfriends.CBS News correspondent Terrell Brown reports.

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 11, 2012
Mount Sinai School of Medicine honored pioneers in discovery and innovation at its 43rd commencement ceremony at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center. A total of 224 degrees were granted, including 141 MDs, 39 PhDs, and 44 Masters degrees. Ruth J. Simmons, PhD, President of Brown University, addressed the Mount Sinai graduates as commencement speaker.
Dr. Simmons received a Doctor of Humane Letters for championing diversity and inclusiveness in higher education. Also honored were Ada Yonath, PhD, the first Israeli woman to win a Nobel Prize, for her pioneering work in developing novel antibiotic drugs; Harald zur Hausen, MD, a Nobel Prize-winning virologist who established that HPV, the human papilloma virus, is the leading cause of cervical cancer; and U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg, MD.
This years commencement reflected Mount Sinais commitment to translational medicine: bringing research breakthroughs made in the lab into clinical practice. The medical school and its Graduate School of Biological Sciences collaborate closely in education, patient care, and therapeutic discovery, forming a foundation that defines Mount Sinai. This unique integration gives students the chance to work in interactive, multidisciplinary teams so they have a better scientific understanding of diseases and how research can benefit patients and improve their care.
In her address, Dr. Simmons of Brown University challenged the graduates to embrace their roles as advocates for change and to use their influence to trigger that change, whether through scientific discovery or providing health care to the community. She urged them to not settle for the status quo, and to always reflect on why they chose a career in health care.
As you go out from Mount Sinai, I extend to you my heartfelt congratulations and my very warmest wishes for glorious years ahead in which you have the intellectual and moral challenges you are qualified to meet and deserve to have, the fortitude to weather the difficult periods in which doubts inevitably arise, the good sense to meditate frequently on what matters and what does not, and the heart to love with the full measure of commitment that you can possibly give, Dr. Simmons said.
Dennis S. Charney, MD, Anne and Joel Ehrenkranz Dean of Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs of The Mount Sinai Medical Center, said in his address that discovery and innovation are encoded in Mount Sinais DNA, exemplified by the opening later this year of the Leon and Norma Hess Center for Science and Medicine, which will open during a time of fierce competition for scarce research funding. One of few research centers opening at an academic medical center in the United States, this new building will bring nearly a half-million square feet of state-of-the-art medical research and clinical facilities to the area and expand Mount Sinais research program space by about one-third.
Dr. Charney encouraged the graduates to carry on the legacy of the scientific pioneers who grace Mount Sinais history. More diseases and clinical syndromes have been named after Mount Sinai physicians than those at any other medical center. Mount Sinai surgeons have a long history of developing and perfecting new procedures that save thousands of lives. Through advances in genomics, systems biology, and bioinformatics, Mount Sinai will be at the forefront of a revolution in personalized and precision medicine. Stand shoulder to shoulder, arm in arm, and heart to heart with those who have come before you your loved ones, your mentors, and the giants of Mount Sinai.
Peter W. May, Chairman of the Mount Sinai Boards of Trustees, discussed the changing landscape of medicine and the increasing importance of collaboration with philanthropists and lay leaders.
In todays world, your role is more complex, he told the students, and you must adapt to the responsibilities that your training carries. You have learned the value of productive collaboration with your colleagues across disciplines during your time at Mount Sinai that philosophy is fundamentally embedded in every program, every laboratory, every operating room, and classroom at our institution. Do not overlook the importance of partnering with nonmedical professionals who have the vision, influence, and willingness to support your endeavors. I urge you to understand, appreciate, cultivate, and nurture these relationships. What you hope to achieve for your patients and for the future health of generations will rely on the strength of these partnerships, Mr. May said.
Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and Chief Executive Officer of The Mount Sinai Medical Center, stressed the critical need for a team approach to medicine.
Today, we pursue excellence in a culture of cooperation because the best way to address the needs of our patients is within a team, and because of the complexity of the problems we face. We treat patient populations, not just individual patients; multiple organ systems not just single diseases; drug interactions, not just a single medication; and today, we must use not just the most effective treatment, but the most efficient treatment, Dr. Davis said. Most patients have comorbid conditions and a host of factors environmental, social, genetic, therapeutic that greatly influence every aspect of care. When you encounter similar challenges to delivering health care at the institution where you work, we hope that the culture we have immersed you in, of working closely with all kinds of colleagues, will guide you.
Dr. Davis offered Mount Sinais Preventable Admissions Care Team (PACT) as an example of this collaborative spirit. PACT was formed at Mount Sinai in 2010 by a team of nurses, physicians, and social workers to reduce Medicare re-admissions rates. PACT developed a program of engagement that bridges gaps in care and strengthens hospital-community relationships in a variety of ways, including improved processes for appointments, expanded visiting nurse services, and outpatient programs and support groups. All of these efforts resulted in a 45 percent reduction in re-admissions.
Honorary degrees were given to pioneers in education and discovery and innovation in disease prevention:
