Having the job title of roofer does not mean that all you do is put roofs on homes and businesses. Many jobs fall under this classification, from estimating what the job will cost to installing the materials to make the roof. Some of the different roofer jobs can include shingle installers, tile removers, and tar applicators. On some roofs made of rubber, one very tiring job is pea stone spreading. If it is an eco-friendly green roof, you have to put sod over the waterproof membrane that is placed there. One roofer specialist job that is very important is doing

As a youth workforce development professional for the past 20 years, I have rolled with the punches, promoting and carrying out the order of the day in the effort of preparing youth for the employment world. First, I was told to emphasize pre-employment work maturity competencies, then focus on high stakes high standard testing. From there I was prompted to help build an employer demand driven workforce system. And now — Green jobs. At this stage, I have grown weary of following an uninformed agenda. How is it that those who don’t work in the field can make up these

Sustainable construction is an emerging trend that has initiated to make real inroads in projects across the market spectrum. But while many owners are interested in the long-term economic and environmental aspect of green building, they are often scared away by the perceived upfront costs. However, a recent study conducted by the Urban Green Council in one of the most expensive cities in the world found that while it may have been the case in the past, the fundamental perception that it costs more to go green is simply no longer the case . In the Urban Green Council report

You may have noticed that Sacramento’s economic condition has not exactly been strong, of late. In fact, while conditions across the country are trying, to say the least, Sacramento, and California as a whole, seems to be leading the pack in economic devastation. With a State budget on the verge of collapse, years of arguing and posturing over the use of public funds, and what appears to be the breakdown of our State’s entire public service sector, local entrepreneurs are turning to online businesses to supplement, and in some cases actually replace their income streams. Over the last several years,

So you passed finals, celebrated with the aide of a variety of alcohol-containing fluids and toasted the end of exams. And now, probably a mere year on, you find yourself reading this article and glancing gloomily at your textbooks with their light coating of dust, contemplating the fact that exams have not in fact ended and instead, while you were distracted by learning how to use the hospital’s computer systems and insert a venflon without creating a blood bath, they have gone on steroids and become even harder than before. My friend, welcome to the world of MRCP part 1

Unless you live in a cave, under a rock, or in an Afghanistan bunker, you’ve probably heard about the 2004 documentary “Super Size Me.” This fascinating film follows director Morgan Spurlock as he embarks on 30 days of eating nothing but McDonald’s cuisine while exploring the obesity issue plaguing America. The humorous, yet thought-provoking documentary was lauded by critics and audiences and deservedly earned an Academy Award nomination (unfortunately, it lost out to “Born into Brothels,” which I hear is a good film, but nowhere near as interesting or entertaining). Morgan has parlayed the success he garnered from the big

Many cities and local governments talk about construction projects in progress and how they will create jobs. Unfortunately, only a fraction of the projects mentioned will ever be started or even reviewed. Did you know it can take 90 days in some cities to review plans -and sometimes even much longer? The mayor of Chicago said it took more than 45 days for the building right on just his house. Electronic plan review enables local government departments to review and share building plans internally, and with customers. Implementing an electronic plan review system, by far, one of the most important

He was rail-thin (140 pounds – tops), and strikingly handsome. Yet Allie Tannenbaum, who started out as a worker in his father’s Catskill hotel, became one of Murder Incorporated’s most accomplished killers. Tannenbaum also became a rat, who helped put his boss, Louis “Lepke” Buchalter, into the electric chair. Tannenbaum was born on January 17, 1906, in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania. When Tannenbaum was just two years old, his father Sam moved the family to Orchard Street, on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. In New York City, Sam Tannenbaum, as he did in Pennsylvania, ran a general store. As a teenager,
