In addition to lost revenue from the machines, the cost of repairing the damage can be extensive.    Break-Ins to Vending MachinesPlease report any suspicious behavior you have noticed or may become aware of in the future, including suspicious behavior, subjects and / or vehicles, or damage to machines consistent with the above break-insIf you witness a crime in progress or suspicious activity, please call 911.  However, if you have information you’d like to pass on, or have any questions, please contact the Evansville Police Department’s Crime Prevention Unit at (812) 485-6135 or call the WeTip line at 1-800-78-CRIME.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Bye-Bye BP… Bring on the Green Space

first_imgBy Donald WittkowskiOne torn down. Two to go.The ghostly hulk of an abandoned gas station was demolished Thursday, a pivotal first step in Ocean City’s efforts to remove blight from its main gateway.The BP was one of three decrepit, former gas stations lining the Ninth Street entryway. Its demolition comes just three weeks after City Council approved a $475,000 bond ordinance to buy the site and transform it into open space.With the BP now gone, two old Exxon and Getty stations are the next targets for demolition.The Exxon site is expected to be redeveloped later this year into a multimillion-dollar office building for the Keller Williams real estate firm. The city is in talks to acquire the Getty property and turn it into open space.Meanwhile, the old BP station’s weather-beaten building was reduced to rubble by heavy construction machinery equipped with a giant claw. Also torn down was the overhead canopy covering the gas pumps.All that remain standing are four old pumps. As part of the property’s sale, the current owner, SAE New Jersey Realty Co. LLC of Pennsauken, will remove the old underground gasoline storage tanks before turning over control to the city.Frank Donato, the city’s chief financial officer, said the BP site will be landscaped to create more green space along the Ninth Street corridor, the main artery in and out of town. The land will also be used for parking for the surrounding residential neighborhood on Revere Place, as well as for people who bike, walk and jog across the Ninth Street causeway.The Exxon site at Ninth Street and Bay Avenue is one of the first things visitors see as they enter town. The BP and Getty stations confront people as they leave the island via the Ninth Street causeway. City officials have long been concerned about the impression the run-down properties have made on tourists.The bond ordinance to buy the BP property, approved by Council on May 12, set the city’s cleanup plan in motion. Donato said the city will probably take title to the site this month, after it is cleaned up and the bonds go to market to finance its purchase.Separately, the city is negotiating to buy the old Getty property from owner Trinetra Realty Holdings New Jersey Delaware LLC of Princeton. Donato said the owner of the Bud’s Marina property next to the BP and Getty stations has also expressed interest in selling, which would give the city an even larger footprint for open space along the Ninth Street corridor.The Abandoned Getty stations sits at the foot of the Ninth Street Bridge.last_img read more

A pathway to humble leadership: 3 simple steps

first_imgI have a long history with the Boy Scouts of America. I am an Eagle Scout and have held a lot of leadership positions in the organization, both on a local and national level. and I worked on summer camp staff for several years. My best friends in the world are those I made through my involvement with Scouting.The caption for the photo above is a quote from the founder of the Order of the Arrow, a service organization in the Scouts. The purpose and sole duty of “Arrowmen” is to serve others. It’s as simple as that. There are a variety of ways to serve, too many to discuss here. Suffice to say that every action, project, or work should be tied back to that very simple goal: to serve others.People lead organizations from all demographics, age groups, creed, race, and backgrounds. The vast majority of these leaders are good at their jobs. Some could use an ego adjustment. A few fall into the category of “servant-leaders.”The concept of “Servant-Leadership” is catching on. Organizations that use the philosophy often enjoy the best productivity, highest profits, and lowest turnover of employees. As a leader, who wouldn’t want those things? continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

The truth about referral marketing – Four myths busted!

first_img 11SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Even though it consistently proves to be one of the the most effective and budget-friendly customer acquisition channels, referral marketing remains a mystery to many people – including many marketing professionals.As referral marketing pioneers, we like to try and help people learn the truth about referral marketing, and we like to see referral marketing myths busted.. There are many fallacies circulating about digital referral marketing which results in scepticism amongst some marketers, and a reluctance to launch a digital referral program. Here are a few points to help you understand the real deal about referral marketing.Myth 1 – Only young or tech savvy people will partake in an online referral programIt’s not unusual for new clients we work with to question whether a digital referral program is the right fit for their client base. Some marketers worry that their client base skews too old and may be put off by the need to go online to send a referral to a friend or family member. However, all of RewardStream’s research indicates that this is not the case. While it is true that younger people (18-34 years) are slightly more likely to go online to review or recommend a product or service, the percentage of older people (35+) likely to make referrals does not drop significantly. In fact between the ages cohorts starting at 25 years old and extended up to age 64, there’s only a variance of about 7% between the results, well within the margin of error, and essentially the same. continue reading »last_img read more

Credit unions have tapped taxpayers’ funds

first_imgCredit unions have received taxpayer money, despite statements to the contrary.Recently, Richard T. Webb wrote Credit Union Times that “[c]redit unions have never cost the tax payers [sic] a single penny and will not going forward.”The comment was made with respect to credit unions being subject to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the controversy over CFPB leadership.However, this statement fails to take into consideration that credit unions have been beneficiaries of Congressional appropriations.For example, credit unions can receive funds from the National Credit Union Administration’s Community Development Revolving Loan Fund and the U.S. Treasury’s Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) Fund. For example, 56 credit unions in 2017 were awarded $39.5 million in CDFI Funds. Both programs receive taxpayer funding from Congress. continue reading » 5SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Minister: India to save up to $1.4 billion on renegotiated Gazprom LNG deal

first_imgFor illustration purposes only; Dahej LNG terminal (Image courtesy of Petronet LNG)India could save up to 95 billion rupees ($1.39 billion) as part of the renegotiated long-term liquefied natural gas (LNG) supply deal with Russian gas giant, according to India’s minister of petroleum and natural gas, Dharmendra Pradhan.The initial 20-year LNG deal that was signed in 2012 between Gazprom and state-owned GAIL was revised at the start of this year.GAIL and Gazprom “successfully re-negotiated the long-term LNG sale and purchase agreement reflecting the current global gas market dynamics,” Pradhan said on Wednesday in a written reply in the Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Parliament of India.“The renegotiated price, compared to earlier contract price, will result in saving of approximately Rs. 8500 Crore (crude oil at US$ 50 per barrel) or Rs. 9000 Crore (crude oil at US$ 60 per barrel) or Rs. 9500 Crore (crude oil at US$ 70 per barrel) for the years 2018 to 2040,” Pradhan said.The minister added that that the LNG price was negotiated depending on many factors like project location, duration of contract and pricing formula.To remind, Gazprom’s trading arm, Gazprom Marketing & Trading Singapore, delivered its first LNG cargo under the long-term contract to GAIL on June 4.The cargo was delivered onboard the LNG Kano carrier to Petronet LNG’s Dahej terminal in Gujarat.

Allardyce silent over contract

first_img Co-owner David Gold released a statement on Sunday saying contract talks with Allardyce will not open until top-flight safety has been assured, with West Ham currently seven points clear of the relegation zone. And, when asked about his contract talks on Monday, Allardyce said: “I know my relationship with David Sullivan and David Gold well and the conversations that we have remain confidential. I’m more than happy to do the job that I’m doing right now and speculation regarding my contract situation has nothing to do with anybody else but the owners.” Sam Allardyce is not willing to entertain speculation surrounding his future as West Ham manager, and will keep talks between himself and the club’s owners private. Press Associationcenter_img Allardyce has been in charge at Upton Park since last summer and guided the Hammers back into the Barclays Premier League at the first time of asking. Gold’s statement on Sunday read: “As David Sullivan and I have always maintained, we will sit down and discuss Sam’s contract situation once our Premier League status has been confirmed and not before. “This is purely because the three of us don’t want anything to distract attention from our aim of finishing as high up the Premier League table as possible.” last_img read more
