Olympic Valley, a place for skiers with a few small restaurants and a resort, has been reported all the way back in November of high levels of E. Coli (may cause food poisoning in children and the elderly). The specific type is known as Coliform (caused by fecal contamination and may cause diarrhea) and is scattered across the water wells. The potential health issue has been reduced after testing in some of the wells that the bacteria has shown low levels of Coliform. Luckily no health issues have been reported but people in the area are not allowed to consume the Valley’s water.
Restaurants have remained closed since the finding of the bacteria, but skiers may go about their day skiing from top to bottom of the local resort. The resort is, however serving complimentary bottles of water until they are fully assured that the water is safe to drink once again.
This was all caused by a storm which flooded quite a few water filtration systems in the area. Olympic Valley is demonstrating great amounts of progression in terms of resolving the issue. There are clear forms put up to warn visitors to not consume the water and to eat the pre-packaged food they provided everyone.
Though not all of the bacteria is harmful, visitors will not be allowed to drink the water until there shows absolutely no signs of any left over bacteria. This type of bacteria does not do very well in a cold environment, so the snow is definitely helping kill off any remaining Coliform. But don’t worry, bathrooms are available for use. They have plenty of chlorine in the water to assure you that you may wash your hands and what not. Since November 8th, there have been tests everyday, and future days, until the water is safe for consumption again. Squaw Valley is showing great improvement. A little more patience is all that is needed for the time being.

Josh Verne recently shared his practical advise for professionals on his podcast. Verne has over 20 years of experience, and is known for founding workspays.me in 2012 with fellow businessman and childhood best friend Jon Dorfman. He is also the CEO of the company. The company was sold in 2014 to Global Analytics Holding.
Josh Verne says that it’s important for business leaders to focus on true leadership rather than being a boss. A leader looks out for the best interest of others and earns the respect of his team members, while a boss only looks out for his own interests and demands respect from others. Josh Verne also asserts that it’s important to listen intently instead of always giving out orders. This lets team members know that they are heard and motivates them to work harder, which contributes significantly to the success of the company. Finalizing business deals that benefit everyone is also essential for professional leaders. Each work-related venture should benefit the leader, as well as the team members, the company and the community.
Verne is also known for founding FlockU.com, a peer-to-peer content exchange in Pennsylvania for college students. The company was founded in 2016 and he is the organization’s CEO.

In the recent past, we have studied the relationship between technology and fashion. We also realized that the two industries run in a parallel and seamless manner. For technology to grow, it requests fashion for permission. On the other hand, fashion also requires technology to become adopted on a massive scale in the environment where it belongs. For this reason, the two industries have seen numerous changes growing together. For the wise people, they can denote the act that the two industries have worked to meet the user needs in a factor of consideration. Therefore market stability is one of the best things to talk about during technology and fashion invasion.
According to Chris Burch, When technology grows over time, it is considered as fashionable. As a matter of fact, technology becomes fashionable in a manner that depicts stability in the market value index. Technology always struggles to become fashionable when it grows over time. For this matter, fashion also grows to become technologically fashionable. We will be fascinated to learn that he journey taken by these two industries has come a long way from history. Or this reason, we will take a closer look at how they have managed to keep up with the trace between technology and fashion. A glimpse of the present and past events in these industries will shed light on what we are talking about.
The boom box of the 70s was one of the most exciting facilities that were available to everyone during that time. As a matter of fact, the boom box was the latest technology in music that was adopted on a massive scale. For whatever has that adoption, it is always called fashionable. Therefore, the technology became fashionable because it fascinated everyone. Many people desired to carry around their favorite stations and tunes in a manner that has no depiction of the market stability. In future needs, they will look at the situation affecting the stability measures in this industry. Therefore, working to meet these requirements is the best thing to do in the middle of an economic crisis.
For the boom box, they had two cassette recorders. While you were using the first record o play your favorite music from the tape, you had the ability to use the other side to record the same music playing. For this reason, its use was adopted into the introduction of television in the 80s. The Walkman technology faded away from the use of the boom box in a fashionable manner.
