Squaw Valley statement on water quality

Squaw Valley Ski holdings have made a statement regarding well contamination following heavy rainfall. Recently, Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows began construction on an upgrade to their water systems which moved their underground water infrastructure to above ground and improved their pipelines. On November 8th reports of E. coli came in because of a major increase in rainfall. Due to the resort’s swift action, no guest ever drank contaminated water.


After the findings from the routine testing, the resort immediately took action to prevent further contamination and contacted the Squaw Valley Public Service District and the Placer County Environmental to ascertain the root cause. Following consultations with several water safety experts the ski resort immediately took steps to protect their customers and to provide for their comfort.


It is currently unknown how long it will take to determine when the water is safe to drink. Engineers working on the problem do not believe that the problem is rooted in the design of the upgrades to the resort’s water system. Leading experts in water safety are taking water samples daily to test for E. coli. Squaw Valley has stated that they will not return to their normal water systems until they are fully assured of its safety.


The resort has worked tirelessly to make sure that the water is potable and most recent updates show that low levels of E. coli have been reported. At this rate it should only be a matter of time until the water is fully drinkable. Guests can freely visit the resort as long as they follow simple guidelines set in place by the resort.

Thor Halvorssen Recognizes Humanity

There is a process when it comes to injustice. The first part of the process is the dehumanizing of the people. Then this results in inferior treatment because they are considered lower than others. While some forms of this exist everywhere in the world, the more extreme forms of this are in underdeveloped countries. A lot of these countries are under tyrannical and authoritarian rule. Of course, this is to be fought and stopped. Fortunately, there are people who are working on ways to take on this type of tyranny so that people in those countries can have the human rights that are enjoyed in developed countries.

Among these people is Thor Halvorssen. Thor is a human rights activist who is very passionate and creative when it comes to his fight for human rights. For one thing, he is always keeping a sharp eye on the issue of human rights and is looking for ways to not only shed light on the issue in different countries but to also eradicate the injustices that are ongoing. He does not stop at talking about it. He also gets himself involved in many different capacities which include actually traveling to the countries where the violations are occurring.

One thing that could be said for Thor is that he recognizes the humanity of people that are suffering in the world. He wants others to recognize them. That way, they would be able to work on a plan that will bring down the foul treatment that is prevalent in these countries. Thor runs a campaign that is so effective that he has gotten the help of celebrities when it comes to fighting for the rights of others. Christian Bale himself has taken on the fight in order to help with the issue of human rights violations.

Securus Technologies Brings Christmas To Correction Facilities

Technology innovations have made a significant difference in the way people handle daily tasks today. Technology such as the internet, WiFi, smartphones, and broadband have allowed the world to become a digital world. People can now do things on the internet and over networks that were not possible a few decades ago. One of the areas that has made tremendous strides over the past few years related to technology innovations is video.


While technology innovations have been numerous over the past two decades, one of the areas where innovations were still needed to bring performance enhancements was in the realm of video communications. Both online and with phones, video as a communication method needed to be faster, provide higher resolution, and work better with audio time measures.


Technology innovations have been made that relate to the issues involving video communications. These innovations have made video a common technology used for communication purposes over the past decade. Currently video is used for conferencing and talking to individuals on a variety of technology devices. The innovations that go unnoticed by the general public such as network cabling equipment, network methods, and network hardware have made video communication almost a truly real time event.


Securus Technologies is a technology company that provides a variety of communication products and services to correction facilities across the country. The company will be providing technology that is called video visitation technology for inmates in correction facilities this Christmas holiday season. The technology will be used to allow inmates to see and talk to their family members during Christmas.


The technology works by setting up a link between the correction facilities where the inmates are located and the homes where the families are located. When the link is established, the video visitation technology allows the inmates to talk to their family members in real time. The technology provides clear audio and great resolution through the communication link.


I believe that the video visitation technology will bring a much happier Christmas holiday for many families this Christmas. Many inmates are unhappy during the Christmas holiday because they cannot be home to see family and friends. The technology provided by Securus Technologies will help bring Christmas to numerous inmates this year.


Securus Technologies is a technology related company that offers a wide range of products and services for correction facilities and various other organizations.
