Winter sports has become a hot topic the past couple of years. As temperatures rise and drought continues in California, the snow has declined. I heard a recent interview done with Andy Wirth on Press Play with Madaline Brand. She asks, “How Will the Drought Affect California Ski Resorts?” Hopefully, Andy has the answers.
Andy Wirth is the President of Squaw Valley Ski Corporation and the Cheif Executive Officer of Alpine Meadows of Tahoe, INC. He has been on the sales and marketing team of IntraWest ULC and Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. He has over 24 years of Marketing experience in the ski resort industry. He graduated with a B.S. at Colorado State University and attended Edinburgh University in Scotland.
According to Andy Wirth, the biggest problem is the “Ridiculously Resilient Ridge”. Because of the Ridge, a lot of low-pressure systems that bring in the snow was lost last year. This doesn’t mean that the entire mountain ridge is clean of snow. The ski resort business is still going strong. “Well you got 6 thousand acres,” says Andy, “So if we only have 4 thousand acres for skiing, you’re still going to have a very very good time.”
Some other methods of dealing with less snow are making and managing snow efficiently. Andy mentions using scientific methods to keep snow on the ground once made. He’s also enlisted different machines for transporting snow already on the ground.
With El Niño coming, the resilient ridge will now act as a way to hold the cold temperatures in. Climatologists from Colorado State University see a much better winter for ski resorts this year than the last four. This means a longer season and more snow cover this upcoming season.
Lastly, the interview moves on to the impact climate change has had on ski resorts. “We see ourselves as resource managers…We take managing this natural resource very seriously” Andy Wirth states. Ski resorts are working towards fighting the rising carbon emissions by eliminating it in their own companies. They work to reduce carbon in their buildings and operations as well as in any of their imports. The ski industry is resilient after all. Andy Wirth insists that despite the weather, the capital margin for ski resorts is still high.
Squaw Valley Ski Holdings looks to open their season the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

Not in my backyard. Not in your backyard, either. That’s what I say. Who wants to live next door to a prison? Let’s see a show of hands.
Now, arguably, living in the immediate vicinity of a prison could be one of the safest places to live. (Frankly, with the way things are going in the world today, living IN a prison could be one of the safest places to live.) Modern confinement facilities are staffed with teams of professionals dedicated to ensuring the safety of not only the inmates, but the community at large.
Companies like Securus Technologies (see the BBB.org profile) aid corrections professionals in this fight to keep the public safe and secure. In this fight, there will be heroes, and there will be villains. Is it villainy when GTL decides to defraud the taxpayers of Louisiana by padding prisoner phone calls with hidden charges? Is it villainy when this same company changes the clocks so that 15-36 seconds is artificially added to each call? Is theft and the betrayal of the public trust villainous?
I’ve learned from PR Newswire that there would be heroes in this fight, and indeed, one has emerged: the voice of Securus Techologies, bravely crying out against injustice in a world beset with malice and evil. I say, companies like Securus Techologies deserve recognition and commendation for their honesty and integrity in the face of outright lawlessness.
Let’s keep the public safe and keep fighting the good fight.
Have you ever wished that you could simply just stop everything you were doing and have beautiful hair? Have you ever wished that you could have all your hair prayers( yes I said hair prayers) answered in one solution? You’re no alone. Many of us do and after several years of bad hair days and a plethora of other nightmare experiences with my hair I have finally identified a solution that works for my hair and works pretty well. WEN By Chaz has been my saving grace. For so long I could never seem to find a product that worked on my thin hair until one night while staying up late watching infomercials I stumbled across this 3 in 1 hair solution that works as a shampoo, conditioner, and styling gel. It has really transformed my hair and my confidence quite honestly because who doesn’t live for great hair right.
I remember like it was yesterday when the Wen By Chaz rumors first hit. My mom called me and told me that Wen By Chaz was under fire because it had been causing some negative effects for others. I was flabbergasted because the product had worked pretty darn well for me and I couldn’t imagine it impacting my hair like it had impacted others but who was I to really say if the rumors were true or false no one listens to my voice.
Someone did however listen to Emily Mcclure. She’s a blogger over at Bustle and she decided to dispel the myths about the sephora advertised brand once and for all. She gave the products a try and we watched her hair transform right before our eyes. It was almost like watching a frog turn into a prince(okay bad example but you get my drift). Not only did her hair look 100x better but you could see with each photo her hair had soared her confidence through the roof. Wen is sold online via Guthy-Renker.

This project’s goal was to raise money in order to help shelters provide aid to the numerous animals left without shelter during the cold season. The primary cause for so many animals being homeless in New York City is because the shelters are all running at maximum capacity already. The few that have space are not properly equipped to handle taking in anymore, which leads to starving and sick animals on the streets.
The goal of the campaign was to bring many people together from all over the New York area and donate as much as possible to help animal shelters foster more animals. The campaign was started in early January and had a humble goal of $5000. This money would be used for food, medicine, blankets, and more for any unfortunate animals.

The name “George Soros” conjures images of two things: money and political power. No doubt about it, this enigmatic figure has been able to use his billions of dollars to influence the American electoral process. He has figured prominently in the elections of Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, among many others in the federal government.
Now, with Donald Trump leading a resurgent Republican campaign for the White House, Soros has begun a drive to reach out to Latino voters. The objective is to ensure that this powerful minority voting bloc will turn out at the polls for Democratic candidates, especially Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Who is George Soros?
Hungarian-born George Soros arrived in America in 1956. He is an immigrant who can empathize with the plight of Latinos in the country. The billionaire has expressed anger over anti-immigrant stances taken by Trump and wants to use his money to keep the real estate mogul out of the Oval Office.
Soros is one of the most successful hedge fund managers in history, having made up to a billion dollars in one day. He no longer controls the operations of his Quantum Fund but remains influential in decision making.

The Capitalist Threat
The Latino Outreach Plan
Known as the Latino Victory Project, this $15 million outreach plan wants to ensure the largest turnout ever among the community. Soros has a chance of achieving this result. Donald Trump has been especially harsh on Latinos in his rhetoric, often mentioning crime when referencing the group.
Nevertheless, there has been less enthusiasm within the Democratic Party this year than has been witnessed among Republicans. Moreover, the media follows Tump around, awaiting his seemingly daily dose of over-the-top commentary.
The Victory Project wants to mobilize Latinos against Trump to propel Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee, onto a win in November. Soros hopes they can persuade 400,000, new Latino voters to cast ballots for Clinton. Not to be outdone, conservative billionaires, the Koch brothers, have spent $10 million on the Libre Initiative, aimed at getting Latinos to back the Republican Party in 2016.
