Fundraiser to Open Calgary’s First “Men’s Centre” Reaches Halfway Point

Boys and men are in crisis. Calgary needs a social service hub to respond to heart-wrenching stories from men that are not getting help because of their gender.

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, December 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — MEDIA ADVISORY – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Fundraiser to Open Calgary’s First “Men’s Centre” Reaches Halfway Point

CALGARY, ALBERTA — (December 11, 2018) The charity Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE), which operates the first “Men’s Centres” in both Toronto and Ottawa, has reached the halfway point in its fundraiser to open the Canadian Centre for Men and Families in Calgary, the first step in its Western Canada Expansion Campaign.

“Calgary needs a social service hub for boys and men in the community because every day we hear heart-wrenching stories from families that we cannot currently help,” said Justin Trottier, CAFE Executive Director. “Just imagine you live in constant fear of domestic violence, but no one believes you because of your gender? Or imagine losing your relationship with your child because of gender stereotypes that still dominate in family court.”

Although it seems to rub against the grain, in many ways boys, men and fathers are in crisis. The suicide rates of males is rising just as their university enrollment rates are falling. Men are twice as likely to abuse drugs or alcohol, and comprise over 75% of the emergency shelter population. As more couples divorce or separate, children increasingly suffer the consequences of father-absence.

The Campaign has raised over $35,000 and a Patreon crowdfunding campaign is seeking to complete the fundraiser. The value of all Patronships will be matched six times over by a private sponsor, until the end of 2018.

With the holidays around the corner, the Canadian Association for Equality is working to make sure that all families have the support they need.

CAFE was recently awarded a federal government research grant to explore the relationship between male homelessness and domestic abuse, positioning the agency as an emerging national leader in research, education and services for men and boys.

Vincentric Announces 2018 Canadian Diesel Analysis: Most Diesel Trucks Not Cost Effective

All SUV/crossover and van diesels analyzed were cost effective compared to their gasoline-powered counterparts, while only 16% of trucks could make that claim.

BINGHAM FARMS, MICHIGAN, USA, December 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vincentric, LLC announced its 2018 Canadian Diesel Analysis results today with 118 of the 428 (28%) diesels evaluated having a lower total cost of ownership compared to their closest gasoline powered counterpart. The study assumed an ownership timeframe of five years with an annual driving distance of 25,000 kilometers.

Vincentric analyzed 856 vehicles with a majority of the vehicles falling in the Truck (368 diesel) category. Vans (36 diesels), SUV/Crossovers (14 diesels), and Passenger Cars (10 diesels) were also compared against their gasoline equivalents. The results showed that buyers should be cautious when purchasing a diesel truck as only 60 of the 368 (16%) diesels were found to be cost effective. Buyers of diesel SUV/Crossovers (including luxury brands) or diesel vans can feel confident, with all 50 diesels analyzed found to be cost effective. Most passenger cars, including luxury brands, were also cost effective with 8 of the 10 (80%) diesels having lower ownership costs than their gasoline counterparts.

Although only 16% of diesel trucks were cost effective, truck buyers will have a better chance of finding cost-effective diesels looking at 1/2 ton and smaller pickups, with 26 of the 79 (33%) diesel trucks being cost effective. Heavy-duty (3/4 and 1 ton) pickups told a different story with only 34 of the 289 (12%) diesels being cost-effective.

The primary reason that diesels have a higher total cost of ownership is due to their price premium. The market price of diesel trucks averaged $9,668 more than their gasoline powered counterparts while diesel vans cost an average of $5,625 more, diesel passenger cars cost an average of $2,486 more, and SUV/Crossovers cost an average of $1,122 less vs. a similar gasoline powered vehicle. These price premiums create higher costs for depreciation, taxes, and financing which are not always offset by diesel fuel economy cost savings.

Another factor causing diesel trucks to have the smallest percentage of cost-effective vehicles was their higher cost of maintenance. On average it costs $2,019 more for maintenance on diesel trucks compared to their gasoline counterparts. On the opposite end of the spectrum, diesel passenger cars showed an average of $199 less for maintenance than their gasoline powered counterparts over the five-year timeframe.

“When a buyer sees the diesel price premium, it can often steer them away from purchasing a vehicle that could actually be cost-effective,” said Vincentric President David Wurster. “The study revealed that there are plenty of cost-effective diesels in the marketplace, but finding the ones that are cost-effective requires a full understanding of each vehicle’s ownership costs.”

In preparing the 2018 Vincentric Canadian Diesel Analysis, Vincentric conducted a statistical analysis of diesel vehicles to provide buyers and the automotive industry with insightful information on the cost of owning and operating a diesel vehicle and their closest gasoline powered counterparts. Vincentric measured total cost of ownership using eight different cost factors: depreciation, fees & taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs.

Further information regarding the 2018 Vincentric Canadian Diesel Analysis results for all vehicles analyzed can be requested from marketing@vincentric.com or visit the Vincentric.com Diesel Analysis Page to view the top 3 cost-effective vehicles in each category.

Orly Maravankin of Edge Consulting to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, December 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The work environment today is Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA). We are constantly distracted by the sheer amount of information coming our way, often stressed and stretched too thin, making it difficult to remain focused. But productivity requires focused attention. So people need to acquire skills to remain focused, engaged and productive.

Orly Maravankin, the founder of Edge Consulting, says that more distractions outside require greater focus inside. The first key step in working with leaders is to help them push the PAUSE button, stop and pay attention; monitor themselves. Leaders need to have the space to become aware of what is going on “inside”—notice their thoughts, feelings, internal distractions and reactivity; in other words build their self-awareness.

Edge Consulting is a coaching and consulting firm specializing in executive coaching and mindful leadership programs in corporate settings. Coaching and mindfulness combined help leaders to build Emotional Intelligence (EI) — considered a key leadership competency and a key predictor of success.

When people experience stress, which is a commonplace in VUCA, their attention narrows to focus on the cause of stress and the brain executive functions are hijacked. Mindfulness trains the brain to focus attention on purpose. Leaders become more aware of what triggers them, learn to regulate triggers, manage emotions and reduce stress. They respond, not react. Self-awareness and self-management are 2 foundational EI skills.

With mindfulness it also becomes easier to recognize how other people feel. Dr. Maravankin says another important aspect of EI is social awareness and empathy, when leaders develop an appreciation that their team is comprised of human beings with their own challenges, pressures and anxieties. Through empathy the conversation changes to one that opens people's hearts and minds and build trust. When the conversation changes, solutions can happen.

“Mindful leadership is about how leaders show up” says Maravankin. “It relates to how they listen, how they speak and how they manage themselves. We know that leaders are at their best when they can stay tuned and really listen to what people on their team are trying to communicate, verbally and non-verbally. Everyone wants to know they are being heard and respected.”

“A big passion of mine is helping leaders excel in the environment today that can be so taxing to anyone, especially to leaders themselves because they are under enormous pressure. Mindfulness facilitates a mindset that is more relaxed and open for problem solving and creativity.

According to a recent Gallup study, only a third of employees worldwide are engaged at work. If we are not engaged, our productivity is going down. Through mindful leadership practices, leaders can reduce stress and increase focus. Less stressed leaders also mean less stressed employees, because emotions especially of leaders are contagious, increasing the wellbeing of the company as a whole.

CUTV News Radio will feature Orly Maravankin in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on December 13th at 3pm EST.

Azincourt Energy to Fly Airborne Geophysical Survey at the East Preston Uranium Project, Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan

Figure 1: Proposed VTEM Survey grid – December 2018

Figure 2: 2018 VTEM Survey results

Figure 3: Project Location & Surrounding Projects – Western Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada

Company to conduct VTEM™ Max & Magnetic survey over the southeastern portion East Preston to complete survey coverage over the entire 250-sq km project area.

Azincourt Energy Corp (TSX:AAZ)

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, December 11, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vancouver B.C., December 11, 2018 – AZINCOURT ENERGY CORP. (“Azincourt” or the “Company”) (TSX.V: AAZ, OTC: AZURF), is pleased to provide an update regarding its winter work program at the East Preston uranium project located in the southwestern Athabasca Basin, Saskatchewan, Canada.

The Company has engaged Geotech Ltd to conduct a helicopter-borne Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (VTEM™ Max) and Magnetic survey over the southeastern portion of the East Preston Project to complete survey coverage over the entire project area.

The planned survey will consist of 498 line-km with 300m line spacing and 1,000m tie-line spacing – identical parameters to the previous VTEM™ Max survey, and ties directly into the previous flight lines (Figure 1). Flight lines are oriented NW-SE, perpendicular to the NE-SW trending structural and conductor trends of the basement rocks at East Preston.

Geotech Ltd., the sole provider of the VTEM™ Max platform, has a system currently active in Saskatchewan and plans to commence the East Preston survey in mid-December. Weather permitting, the survey is expected to require 5-7 days, and will be completed by year end.

“The VTEM™ Max system has been used in the Athabasca for many years and is an ideal technique for identifying basement conductor systems – the first-tier targeting criteria for unconformity uranium deposit discovery,” said Ted O’Connor, Director and Qualified Person on the East Preston project. “VTEM has proven effective to depths of well over 400m in the Athabasca. The East Preston project lies outside the Basin with shallow targets anticipated, making VTEM™ Max an ideal direct targeting tool for the project, which may preclude the need for future ground-based EM techniques in this environment,” continued Mr. O’Connor.

“This VTEM™ Max survey coverage will bring the entire East Preston project up to the same level of investigation,” said Alex Klenman, president & CEO. “It will allow us to generate additional quality geophysical drill targets and provide us with the ability to assess and evaluate the prospectivity of the entire project area,” continued Mr. Klenman.

The Company has applied for and is awaiting approval for drill permits at East Preston and once granted is planning to begin phase one of an approximate 10+ hole, 2000-2500-meter diamond drill program of inclined drill holes to test the structurally-controlled basement uranium deposit model. Drill targets have been prioritized based on stacking of airborne and ground electromagnetic and ground gravity geophysical data interpretation.

Historical Work

Extensive regional exploration work at East Preston was completed in 2013-14, including airborne electromagnetic (VTEM), magnetic and radiometric surveys. Three prospective conductive, low magnetic signature corridors have been discovered on the property. The three distinct corridors have a total strike length of over 25 km, each with multiple EM conductor trends identified. Ground prospecting and sampling work completed to date has identified outcrop, soil, biogeochemical and radon anomalies, which are key pathfinder elements for unconformity uranium deposit discovery.

Azincourt Geophysical Work – Winter 2018

The Company completed a winter geophysical exploration program in January-February 2018 that generated a significant amount of new drill targets within the previously untested corridors while refining additional targets near previous drilling along the Swoosh corridor.

The work included 51.5 km of grid preparation (line cutting/picketing), 46.1 km of horizontal loop electromagnetic (HLEM), and 40.6 km of ground gravity along the previously known airborne helicopter VTEM conductive trends.

Ground-truthing work confirmed the airborne conductive trends and more accurately located the conductor axes for future drill testing. The gravity survey identified areas along the conductors with a gravity low signature, which is often associated with alteration, fault/structural disruption and potentially, uranium mineralization. The combination/stacking of positive features will assist prioritizing targets for testing first.

The Main Grid shows multiple long linear conductors with flexural changes in orientation and offset breaks in the vicinity of interpreted fault lineaments – classic targets for basement-hosted unconformity uranium deposits. These are not just simple basement conductors; they are clearly upgraded/enhanced prospectivity targets because of the structural complexity.

Targets

The targets are basement-hosted unconformity related uranium deposits similar to NexGen’s Arrow deposit and Cameco’s Eagle Point mine. East Preston is near the southern edge of the western Athabasca Basin, where targets are in a near surface environment without Athabasca sandstone cover – therefore they are relatively shallow targets but can have great depth extent when discovered. The project ground is located along a parallel conductive trend between the PLS-Arrow trend and Cameco’s Centennial deposit (Virgin River-Dufferin Lake trend).

Qualified Person

The technical information in this news release has been prepared in accordance with the Canadian regulatory requirements set out in National Instrument 43- 101 and reviewed on behalf of the company by Ted O’Connor, P.Geo. a director of Azincourt Energy Corp., as well as a qualified person.

The Gala and Award Ceremony that was attended by upwards of 150 guests included were esteemed members of the business community, representatives from local law enforcement, and local government representatives. The GGCC, which has added over 100 new businesses to its membership over the last year, is Montgomery County's largest chamber of commerce. When receiving the award for Small Business of the Year, Chief Technical Officer Ed Samuels addressed the congregation, stating:

"It is in our DNA, part of giving back to this chamber is educating members about online security, and of course, how to make your business bigger and better, and how to grow into 2019. Giving back is an important part of what we do as a business, and we invest extensive time and resources into this. We build awareness and promote education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through the support of Project Lead The Way. We collaborate with The Department of Homeland Security to build awareness for cybersecurity best practices. These contributions also include giving back to foundations, such as BlackRock Center for the Arts, National Children’s Center, and Lupus Foundation. As we build on our success, we help others become more successful."

As an established member of the GGCC, Auxilium has sponsored events to help educate members and increase value for the organization.

Auxilium has provided educational resources and workshops to local businesses through multiple chambers of commerce, in the areas of digital marketing and cybersecurity best practices.

Auxilium also contributes their services to local chambers in the area of web development, digital marketing consulting, and video development. Giving back to the community is fundamental to the company model, and these contributions range from community service to education and awareness.
