We approach our role with humility and transparency. We support the work of leaders and we give credit where credit is due. COLLABORATIVE. As a small organization we can’t achieve our goals alone, so we value partnership and actively seek out collaboration that will maximize our impact. We see other organizations that share our goals as allies and, where possible, look to support their work. We work together, we’re respectful of different cultures and we seek out different approaches, recognizing that there is strength in diversity. POLITICALLY NEUTRAL. We actively and equally support all individuals, organizations and governments that demonstrate leadership on climate change and show no preference on the basis of their nationality and political affiliation.

REDO your HOMEPAGE! Here is how!

Your website is boring plus it seems to me that you do not know what you are doing and talking about. Your article are scattered and all over the place. What’s the use of your categories then when everything inside are all useless articles that do not go along with each other. When I click “home” I expect that I will be reading some things or background about the company but there is nothing there instead there are articles that are out place. Okay so here id what people are expecting to read in a home button. Okay, these tips are not from me, I googled it –easy! I am not even an expert but c’mon this is really easy to understand and easy to apply. Please do yourself a favor and follow this steps redo your Homepage and maybe you will attract readers. They will think that your site has some sense on it. Thank me later! Make the Site's Purpose Clear: Explain Who You Are and What You Do 1. Include a One-Sentence Tagline Start the page with a tagline that summarizes what the site or company does, especially if you're new or less than famous. Even well-known companies presumably hope to attract new customers and should tell first-time visitors about the site's purpose. It is especially important to have a good tagline if your company's general marketing slogan is bland and fails to tell users what they'll gain from visiting the site. 2. Write a Window Title with Good Visibility in Search Engines and Bookmark Lists Begin the TITLE tag with the company name, followed by a brief description of the site. Don't start with words like "The" or "Welcome to" unless you want to be alphabetized under "T" or "W." 3. Group all Corporate Information in One Distinct Area Finding out about the company is rarely a user's first task, but sometimes people do need details about who you are. Good corporate information is especially important if the site hopes to support recruiting, investor relations, or PR, but it can also serve to increase a new or lesser-known company's credibility. An " About <company-name >" section is the best way to link users to more in-depth information than can be presented on the homepage. (See also my report with 70 guidelines for the design of "about us" areas of corporate websites.) Help Users Find What They Need 4. Emphasize the Site's Top High-Priority Tasks Your homepage should offer users a clear starting point for the main one to four tasks they'll undertake when visiting your site. 5. Include a Search Input Box Search is an important part of any big website. When users want to search, they typically scan the homepage looking for "the little box where I can type," so your search should be a box. [Make your search box at least 25 characters wide,] so it can accommodate multiple words without obscuring parts of the user's query. (Update: Based on more recent findings, my recommendation is now to make the search box 27 characters wide. This and other new guidelines are covered in my tutorial on Fundamental Guidelines for Web Usability at the annual Usability Week conference.) Reveal Site Content 6. Show Examples of Real Site Content Don't just describe what lies beneath the homepage. Specifics beat abstractions, and you have good stuff. Show some of your best or most recent content. 7. Begin Link Names with the Most Important Keyword Users scan down the page, trying to find the area that will serve their current goal. Links are the action itemson a homepage, and when you start each link with a relevant word, you make it easier for scanning eyes to differentiate it from other links on the page. A common violation of this guideline is to start all links with the company name, which adds little value and impairs users' ability to quickly find what they need.

Frequently asked regarding Life Settlements with Crown A...

What are some of the reasons a person sells their policy? Most people acquire life insurance early in their careers as a means of protecting their income and family in the event of an unexpected event. However, over time, changes in people’s circumstances often mean that individuals want access to the value “locked-in” their life insurance policy prior to their death. In the USA people are becoming increasingly aware that their life insurance policy may qualify for a Life Settlement. These changing circumstances could include the following: * The insured may have outlived the beneficiaries the policy was originally intended to protect. * Premiums may have become unaffordable and unless sold as a Life Settlement, the insured may have to let the policy lapse. * The insured may be financially secure and have no further need for the policy. * The insured may wish to make a gift of the monetary value of the policy while they are still alive. * The insured may sell the policy for estate planning purposes. * The insured is considering whether or not to lapse or surrender the policy, for its cash surrender value. * In circumstances where the alternative for the insured is to let the policy lapse and lose a potentially large portion of the premiums, which have been paid on the policy, a Life Settlement is an attractive option. How does Crown determine if a policy is targeted for purchase? Crown’s parameters for doing business are as follows: Average age of the group or individual over 80years old, Life expectancy less than 84 months, policy to generate a minimum IRR of 14%. Of course the policy has to be beyond the 2-year contestability period and issued in the US. The life insured and the company must also be located in the US. If all these parameters are met then we look at the policy however management makes the final decision. Why invest in Life Settlement Policies through Crown Alliance? The Returns from Life Policy investments (through Life Settlements) are generally not correlated with other investment markets (see below). * Uncorrelated Returns. This means that the performance of the Life Policies will be based on the characteristics of the pool of the insured lives, and not on the performance of traditional markets, such as the stock market, the property market and the interest rate market. * Lower volatility of returns * Benefit amount assured. This means the benefit payable on each policy is contractually fixed at the time of purchase. * Sizeable and growing asset class * Potential for higher returns * Improved mortality data accuracy * Non-contestability – Crown only purchases Life Policies that have a non-contestability provision. Normally the Contestability * Period is the first 2 years that the policy is in force, so we don’t buy policies until it has passed that time. * Increased Regulation – adding to strength and stability in the industry. * Strength of the underlying asset is highly rated *The risk of life extension in individual policies can be mitigated – by owning an actuarially significant portfolio of policies.

Better Feed Efficiency Also Means Fewer Environmental Con...

Environmental concerns, as well as rising costs of inorganic phosphate sources have motivated producers “to consider alternative strategies to reduce the total phosphorous concentrations in broiler diets,” Lee said. The main strategy utilized to decrease the levels of phosphorus required in broiler diets is the use of enzymes that utilize the phosphorus in plant sources, such as corn and soybean, according to Lee. A form of phosphorus called phytate can account for as much as 70 percent of the total phosphorus found in plants, he said. However, poultry do not have the ability to digest phytate. But ruminant animals such as beef cattle have bacteria in their rumens that naturally produce an enzyme called phytase that allows them to convert the phytate into organic phosphorus. Phytase can be relatively cheaply and easily produced and added to poultry feed, but that solves only one aspect of the problem. “Another anti-nutritive factor found in cereal grains used in broiler diets include the presence of non-starch polysaccharides – NSP, which are fibrous material found in plant cell walls,” Lee said. “Chickens lack the digestive capacity of ruminant animals and the presence of NSP in the diet increases intestinal viscosity resulting in decreased digestibility of the diet.” Fortunately, according to Lee, another enzyme, carbohydrase, can help increase Digestibility of high fiber broiler diets. Both enzymes need be added at low rates, typically from 0.25 to 1 pound per ton of feed. But a question remained: Which strains of the two enzymes were best combinations for chicken health and feed conversion efficiency? To determine this, Lee has been conducting studies comparing how multiple levels of phytase affects the bio-availability of phytate with and without non-starch polysaccharides. The feed tested was a combination of corn and soybean meal with added vitamins and micronutrients – a standard poultry ration. The relationship between the effects of the two enzymes turned out to be more complicated than expected. Non-starch polysaccharides increased the bioavailability of phosphorus but at only one of the three levels of phytase concentrations tested. The results of his study will give commercial poultry producer’s information they need to fine-tune feed mixture to reduce phosphorus runoff from chicken litter without endangering flock health, Lee said.

AxelJuddah - Pentalver Launch Bespoke Service for Biomas

Container company Pentalver has created a new solution to the problem of where to house a new wood pellet store using its ISO containers. With a ready supply of new or pre-used containers, storage facilities, skilled container conversion personnel and on-site electrics and plumbing, Pentalver says it is able to rework shipping containers to create a separate boiler house and fuel store, with an internal capacity of 33.2 m³. It adds that the benefits of using shipping containers include their strong structure and weight bearing capacity which makes them ideal for housing heavy boiler equipment. There is also no need for additional foundations or a base as containers can be landed directly on to the ground. Other benefits of the container boiler room are said to include: portability, ease of installation (it simply needs to sit on a concrete plinth) and a low cost alternative to an expensive permanent structure. Sam Baggley, group container sales manager at Pentalver, said: “With the government committed to meeting 15 percent of the UK’s energy demand from renewable sources by 2020 and financial assistance available through the Renewable Heat Incentive, biomass installations are on the increase. “Our converted containers provide a cost-efficient method of creating a totally bespoke boiler room that can be located in close proximity to residential or commercial properties.” http://www.shelfar i.com/groups/10139 4/discussions/4783 64/Crown-Capital-M anagement-Environm ental-News  (May 21, 2013 | post #1)

rowncapitalmngt.co m/rlegislation.htm l Featuring an authoritative source of legislation across the world that deals with environment preservation through promulgating policies on sanctions, regulations, authorizations and restrictions on natural resources. Asia Asian legislation concerning the environment largely varies due to the wide gaps in local customs that could become challenges, leading them to agree on standard procedures and strengthen ties among each neighboring nation. Regulations also highlights the need for dedicated agencies in each country that will handle emergency scenarios with the notable frequency of natural disasteres in the region as well as issues of climate change. The need for humanitarian organizations for more effective deployment and better coordination with the authorities in conducting relief activities is also included. US United States has specific legislations for each facet of the environment in place that : - limits air pollutants by monitoring emissions of factories and utility plants. - leads probes in discharges of hazardous chemicals or oil and proper cleanup. - closely monitoring pesticides for its possible effects in nature and on people. - manages the distribution and manufacture of chemicals to ensure that their exposure will not cause harm to the environment. - regulates the commercial and individual production of hazardous wastes as well as its proper disposal. - implements clean and safe drinking water policies in conjunction with local water treatment plants and preventing pollution. European Union Europe's environment legislations mainly deal with climate change and the subsequent decrease in biological diversity as socio- economic developments are inevitably dependent on those. Their regulations seek to protect and value life diversity for the coming generations by monitoring its implementation closely.  (Oct 14, 2012 | post #1)
