Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam: New Trends at an Iconic Hotel

Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam

The Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam was recertified by Green Globe at the end of last year.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ —
A clever combination of antique and modern, Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam boasts historic architecture and contemporary accommodation in the city centre, just a short walk from Amsterdam Central Station.

First certified in 2018, the Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam was recertified by Green Globe at the end of last year after undergoing a stringent audit.

The hotel is committed to improving its sustainable performance with numerous changes introduced over the past year.

Located in the heart of Amsterdam's city centre, Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam offers modern meeting rooms with high tech extras including a Barrisol coloured lighted ceiling. Green Meetings are a sustainable option at the hotel where plants such as cactuses and succulents that require little watering are utilized to adorn tables. For any printed material, eco/draft, double sided settings are selected on printers and eco-labelled FSC paper is preferred. Recycle bins and video conferencing are also available in meeting rooms.

In line with its CSR initiatives, in June 2019, the hotel’s popular bar created a special Mint and Lime Tree Cocktail. For every refreshing green cocktail sold, €4 was donated in support of the World Childhood Foundation and the Nottinghampshire Wildlife Trust.

The hotel is dedicated to ensuring that no endangered species or products stemming from unsustainable practices are consumed or sold at its restaurant. In 2019, the chef removed both eel and codfish from the menu and will replace them with sustainable alternatives. It is through such decisive actions that wildlife species, ecosystems and biodiversity are conserved.

To minimize impacts and reduce waste, paperless check-ins are now a standard procedure as is a linen and towel reuse program where guests can choose to launder items less frequently. Plastic straws are only available on request and more environmentally friendly cleaning products are also being gradually incorporated into housekeeping cleaning services.

NobelBiz, Contact Center World Class Carrier and Hosted Contact Center Systems announces innovative fresh Podcast Series

‘First Contact: Stories of The Contact Center' The series features unsung heroes of a world often ridiculed while remaining a critical pillar of world commerce.

People that work in contact centers are often committed to excellence. Seldom is it noticed. The presence of mind required in constant conversation makes contact center agents and management unique.”

— Steve Bederman

They work with an intensity, and often face particularly uncomfortable moments in their conversation.” He went on to explain how the pay can be low, the hours long, and the compliments few.

"People that work in contact centers are often committed to excellence. Seldom is it noticed. The presence of mind that’s required to be in constant conversation makes contact center agents and management unique.I’ve been in the industry for much of my life, starting as an agent in the 1970’s. The success that I have had in business is a byproduct of the intensity and focus that I learned through the rapid paced environment,” said Steve Bederman, NobelBiz President.

Bederman will be the first of a monthly continuation of interviews telling the stories of this dynamic industry. He went on to say, “At NobelBiz, we want to raise the level of pride amongst all within our trade. We’re honored to present stories of lives and careers within.

PARIS, FRANCE, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, January 17, 2020, on the same day when the regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei was speaking at Tehran’s Friday prayer congregation, defiant youth tore up or torched posters of the eliminated terror master Qassem Soleimani in different parts of Tehran and in other Iranian cities, including Kerman, Zanjan, Iranshahr, Fassa, Lahijan, Tabriz, Zahedan and Masjed Soleiman.

In his remarks today, Khamenei displayed his desperation and frustration in the face of the rage and defiance of rebellious youth toward the mullahs’ regime and Soleimani by saying that a few hundred who insult Soleimani’s pictures were not the people of Iran.

These activities occurred while the security and suppressive forces were on full alert in view of the Friday prayers in Tehran and regime-staged rallies in other cities.

Alberta Economist Sees $25 Billion APP Benefit, Relatively Little Risk

CALGARY, AB, CANADA, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. J. Richard Bird, an Alberta economist and retired senior executive has submitted a review of the Alberta Pension Plan concept to the Alberta Fair Deal Panel. The review is titled, “A More Balanced View of the Benefits and Risks of the Alberta Pension Plan Concept”. Dr. Bird concludes that the direct benefit to Alberta of an APP would be substantial with a discounted present value of $25 billion, possibly considerably more or somewhat less, and with risks, issues and costs which appear very small in comparison. He finds that rather than being “fraught with risks” the risks and other cons of an APP identified in a recent paper by Keith Ambachtsheer of KPA Advisory Services are all relatively inconsequential in severity and certainly not a basis to forgo the substantial benefit which an APP would provide.

Dr. Bird calculates the potential present value of the increased annual cash flow that an APP would provide to Albertans under three different scenarios ranging from optimistic to very pessimistic, with a resulting range of $46 billion down to $18 billion, and with a benefit of $25 billion corresponding to a moderate case. He also reviews the risks and other cons identified in the Ambachtsheer paper one by one and explains why they are not significant in comparison to the benefit.

Commenting on the submission to the Fair Deal Panel, Dr. Bird said, “Since the original study by the Fraser Institute the APP concept has been characterized as everything from “a slam dunk”, which it is not, to “fraught with risks”, which it isn’t either. As I watched the media reporting on this matter I have felt increasingly that there is a need for a balanced, thorough and “made in Alberta” weighing of the benefits and risks of this concept rather than a one sided focus on just the benefits or just the risks. That is why I have undertaken my review and submitted it to the Fair Deal Panel.”

_ _ _

Dr. Bird’s education and experience has focused for 50 years on economic analysis of the benefits and risks of major financial decisions. He received his Ph.D in Managerial Economics from the University of Toronto in 1975. He taught business economics and management science at Queen’s University for six years before embarking on a 38 year career in the energy industry. At retirement he was Executive Vice President Corporate Development and Chief Financial Officer of Enbridge, one of Canada’s largest public corporations, with responsibilities which included establishing Enbridge’s position as the largest Canadian renewable energy producer, as well as chairing the corporation’s pension committee. In 2009 Dr. Bird served on the federal Minister of Finance’s Advisory Committee on Financing. In 2010 he was named Canada’s Chief Financial Officer of the Year.

Dr. Bird currently serves as the chairman of the board of directors of the Alberta Investment Management Company which manages the investment of $120 billion of Alberta public sector pension and endowment funds. He is the president of the Ptarmigan Charitable Foundation and manages the investment of the family foundation’s capital and the allocation of its investment income among local, national and international priorities including education, physical fitness and sports opportunities for First Nations youth. He has lived in Calgary for 28 years.

The Lincoln Project Launches “Fair Trial” Petition

Petition Demands Senate Republicans Consider the Impeachment Charges Against Trump on its Merits

WASHINGTON, DC, US, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, The Lincoln Project announced the launch of a petition drive demanding a fair impeachment trial of Donald Trump from Senate Republicans.

Rather than honor their Constitutional duty, Republican Senate leaders have made clear their intention to ignore the substance and merit of the charges leveled against Trump, and their willingness to coddle and capitulate to him at the expense of the American people.

“We can’t allow deluded, cowardly Senate Republicans to make a partisan mockery of Trump’s impeachment,” said Jennifer Horn, former Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party. “It’s imperative we hold them accountable and force them to honor their oath to defend the Constitution.”

The petition calls for honorable Americans to add their name to a growing coalition who demand Senate Republicans respect the rule of law in these impeachment trial proceedings.

Press Breakfast Concentrates on Utility Future

The Future of Consulting Lives Here

Decarbonization, resiliency, and spreading electrification in new areas are all priorities for 2020”

— Jan Vrins, Managing Director and Global Energy Practice Leader, Guidehouse

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, January 17, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — "White House Chronicle," the weekly news and public affairs program on PBS and SiriusXM Radio, is reviving a series of press breakfasts in Washington, dating back to 1974 when they were held for energy reporters.

The first press breakfast in the series — called "White House Chronicle Presents," will be held at the National Press Club on Thursday, Jan. 23 at 9 a.m. It will feature three Guidehouse (formerly Navigant) experts who will outline the year ahead — this year of change — and beyond for the electric utility industry.

Llewellyn King, executive producer and host of the program, explains, "During the energy crisis, I launched a series of breakfasts and media events which ran until I sold my newsletter publishing company in 2006. They were held by my publications which included The Energy Daily, Defense Week and New Technology Week.

"I've been asked to revive these, and I'm doing so now under the umbrella of 'White House Chronicle'. They are open to all media, including new media. All the breakfasts will be held at the National Press Club."

The experts at the press briefing will include Jan Vrins, Managing Director and Global Energy Practice Leader for Guidehouse. Vrins is a widely known and respected consultant in the electric utility industry. He will be joined by consultants Mackinnon Lawrence and Aida Hakirevic. All three are devoted to helping utilities move ahead in a time of green energy, microgrids, smart meters, smart cities and existential threats.

"Decarbonization, resiliency, and spreading electrification in new areas are all priorities for 2020," Vrins says. "We expect to see many initiatives in our industry and at all levels of government as the focus on a cleaner and more customer-centric energy ecosystem evolves."

King says, "As in the past, we hope to get reporters in and out of these events with a story for that day. No speeches, just news."
