Presently, global environmental issues are of great concern. Although there are many pollutants, plastics have been a menace for an extended period due to their slow degradation process. However, modern entrepreneurs like Ryan Emmons of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water are promising to tackle plastics innovatively. In fact, Waiakea Water will begin packaging its water using degradable plastics next year.

According to Emmons, the concept of degradable plastics is relatively new as many companies have only tried manufacturing biodegradable plastics. However, the production of biodegradable plastics is still a challenge, and many companies have been left with the option of using degradable plastics. As Waiakea adopts degradable packaging materials, the company is proud to announce that the new materials are 100 recyclable, and they fully degrade in 15 years, unlike traditional plastics which take over 15000 years to degrade fully.

Waiakea’s new packaging materials came to life after over five years and 1,200 experiments. The degradable plastics are achieved through using a TimePlast’s additive in the manufacturing process of plastics. The additive is one of a kind as it is the only patented additive that enables nano-degradation of plastics. Furthermore, the use of the additive is not costly for companies wishing to contribute to environmental conservation efforts. Emmons explains that during manufacturing, only one pound of the additive is required to manipulate over 1000 pounds of traditional plastics. He suggests that many companies in the Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) industry can afford to acquire the additive.
Did the company have any challenges in developing degradable plastics? Emmons explains that the primary problem arose in the optimization of the chemical processes; it requires a lot of skill to develop plastic materials that are degradable, yet they have all the qualities of a good water packaging material. Another challenge related to obtaining a first and only patent from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). In the end, Waiakea Water emerged victoriously.

Sleep is essential for the well-being of human beings. Lack of sleep is not recommended because it has adverse effects on your health, physical appearance, and mental acuity. The body needs at least seven to nine hours of sleep daily to remain healthy, recover from stress, and have the energy for the next day’s activities.

Today, there are numerous ways of treating sleep deprivation and other conditions like sleep apnea. Dr. Avi Weisfogel, a prominent dentist, has dedicated his life to solving sleep-related conditions via dentistry. Many people suffering from sleep apnea do not understand the condition well.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Sleep apnea is characterized by several pauses in breathing when one is sleeping. The pauses could be anything from a few seconds up to a whole minute. People suffering from this condition sometimes wake up chocking immediately after the pause as their breathing resumes. Sleep apnea should be immediately treated because it affects the quality of one’s sleep and may result in mood swings throughout the day.

At-risk people like those who are overweight are advised to lose weight least it affects the quality of their sleep. Those already showing symptoms of the disease should seek medical attention from specialists like Dr. Avi Weisfogel.

Louis Chenevert is a leader who has managed to set a great record in the field of enterprise management. He started as out as a business person in Canada where he was born, and he proceeded to be known as the greatest corporate leader in the United States. Before his successful career, Louis was patient enough to learn from his tutors and gain the relevant skills from predecessors.

Such a factor enabled him to implement his skills accurately. In other cases, he added a little twitch to what had been taught and ended up making decisions that resulted in great success. In the corporate field, Louis Chenevert is attributed with being able to set new standards in leadership. He has been quoted by different enterprise leaders in their speech. His style was unique, and that is why he managed to become a very notable person in the corporate field.

Louis worked in different enterprises before being appointed to the helm of UTC, and once he joined the company, he initially worked as the CEO before eventually taking the full leadership as the Chairman. His objective while working as the chief executive officer of UTC was to ensure that the company is able to achieve the greatest capital gains. Louis has a great imagination, and once he spotted an opportunity, he worked out different ways that could be used to gain from the opportunity.

Louis previously admitted that the success he established at UTC was as a result of investing in the future. Once he realized the possibility of success that was brought forward by technology, he decided to get the most out of it. As a result, the share value of United Technology Corporation rose by over 200% since it was initially 37% and within a single year, it had increased to 137%. UTC ended up being recognized as a very profitable company in the US.

However, Louis admitted that the great achievement would not be possible were it not for support from dedicated colleagues who he continually motivated to do better in life. Excellent performance rarely goes unrecognized, and such a fact applies well for Louis Chenevert. For instance, he received an award from the National Building Museum once he acquired the highest position of leadership at UTC.
