Everyone grows up learning that to regularly wash their hands. Or at least they should. We have all heard stories about the excessive amounts of bacteria lurking everywhere, and there have been entire industries built on battling that bacteria from hand soap to home cleaning disinfectants. But what you may not think about is how prevalent these germs are in areas that you might not expect.
As technology has grown and become a staple in most homes, schools, and business settings, there are now even more surfaces for germs to gather on. And because they are located in environments that are typically quite clean, people often do not pay much mind to what they could be touching all day every day. This is why office cleaning is so important.

Dry ice blasting, also known as CO2 blasting or dry ice cleaning, produces a high temperature, low moisture vapor. The vapor contains only 5 to 6 percent water and is less dense than the air we breathe. Similar to sand blasting, plastic bead blasting or soda blasting where media is accelerated in a pressurized air stream to impact a surface to be cleaned or prepared, carbon dioxide blasting also uses accelerated speeds. However, rather than hard abrasive media ground into a surface, CO2 blasting uses soft dry ice, delivered at extreme speeds, so that it lifts the dirt or other undesired matter off of the surface to be cleaned. It is an efficient, affordabl

Getting new drugs from the lab to the stores is a long and complicated. It needs to be to protect the public from bad pharmaceutical products. Since 2010, doctors in hospitals have ordered at least 271.4 million prescriptions for their patients. Doctors out of the hospital setting have prescribed 285.1 million prescriptions medications in that same amount of time. Companies dealing with clinical trials project management know how much is involved in the process and how many details need to be taken care of. These are the phases of the process.
In the first phase, the safety of the product, drug or device is carefully assessed. This phase generally takes at least a few months to finish. Typically, between 20 to 100 people are involved here. These are healthy people. Research
Think about how many times you have rode in an elevator in your life. It is likely that you cannot recall even an estimate. Elevators are an important part of many buildings and a necessary tool for transporting people to different levels. Yet, we do not put much thought into the safety, design, or installation of the elevator. That is because we are so used to them and their reliability that we never give it a second thought. Elevators are actually complex designs that require many months of planning and design. Furthermore, they require regular inspections and maintenance. When considering an elevator in your commercial or residential setting, consider the following factors.
You have probably rode in multiple sizes of elevators. If you rode one in a busy location, such a hotel or s
Despite claims that we are moving towards a paperless environment, the most common material found in solid waste around the globe is paper. In fact, statistics show that as much as 10,000 sheets of paper are generated by the average American office work every year. That means that about two pounds of paper is generated by office works in the United States every single day, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This isa na astonishing amount given that for every half a box of paper one 15-year old tree is used. While cutting down on paper use is the ideal, this is not always possible, particularly in certain industries. In addition there is a need to get rid of paper documents once they have outlived their usefulness.
Now could be a better time than ever to begin investing in the cannabis industry. The industry saw a significant increase in both popularity and investment in 2016, and many investors believe that 2017 is shaping up to be even more lucrative for the budding legal marijuana industry.
According to Forbes, during 2016 over $1 billion was raised in the marijuana industry nationwide.
The billion-dollar mark was crossed just as 2016 came to an end, with OrganiGram Holdings, Inc. raising $29.8 million. That deal allowed for an expansion of the organization’s cultivation, extract, and derivative activities, but it was just one such deal from the past year.
Many U.S. investors are looking to Canada’s cannabis industry as a benchmark for what the U.S. market will become.
So far, 23 states and the District of Columbia allow cannabis to be used for medicinal purposes. Nationwide acceptance has also rapidly increased over the last few years, and it looks like that trend is going to continue.
“Since the election cycle, the deal flow has mostly been in the real estate sector and principally in California and Massachusetts,” said Scott Greiper, founding partner and president of Viridian. “We have not seen a slow down in deal flow since [attorney general nominee] Sessions name came up and we have not seen a slow down in investing.”
Investing News reports that many industry leaders are curious to see how President-elect Donald Trump’s administration will handle the cannabis market, but they remain optimistic after such a successful 2016. Trump did campaign on a law and order platform, but he has also been unpredictable on social issues.
“I am glad to see the cannabis market look like it will finish positively for the first time since 2013,” said Alan Brochstein, a stock analyst. Although, “the Trump election and the uncertainty it brings regarding federal cannabis policy was certainly not expected.”
Here’s what we do know: Canada and the U.S. saw significant increases in the cannabis industry and, as of right now, there is no reason why 2017 should not be as profitable, if not more so, than last year.

Commerce, trade, and consumerism in general have taken off in recent decades as the global population has boomed. With a higher number of people, there is naturally a higher demand for goods. Whether those goods are necessities like food, clothing, heating, or materials for shelter, or they they are luxuries and comforts that we have grown quite dependent on as a society, there is more production of goods now than our ancestors might have ever imagined would be possible.
And in the process of manufacturing, storage, and transportation, there needs to be a place for these goods to be kept before they reach their end goal of landing in the hands of waiting customers. This is where it is important for businesses to stay on top of determining warehouse space needs.
We just can’t seem to stop ourselves.
Even though the last week has been full of presents from immediate family members, gifts from colleagues at the office, and gift certificates from relatives and neighbors, we still wake up On New Year’s Day wanting to get to the mall.
Undeterred by the full parking lot, we just can’t avoid rummaging through sale racks advertising 50% off current reductions. We buy more pants, we purchase more shirts, we collect more shoes.
This year, however, we promise it will be different. When the shopping frenzy and gift opening have finally come to an end, we promise that we will take the time to clean out our closet’s and drawers and get rid of the items that we no longer use. In fact, this year the promise is that for every new item we receive or purchase we will get
