Thousands of veterans and their families attended what is dubbed Michigan’s largest free event for the veteran community.

The non-profit organization VETLIFE organizes Vet Fest to bring veterans together to enjoy camaraderie and connect them to the military benefits they have earned through their service. Veteran heroines were specially honored at this year’s event held in August at the Fowlerville Fairgrounds.

VETLIFE co-founder Joshua Parish said, “Michigan is home to nearly 600,000 veterans, but in 2019 less than 12% were tied to a federal benefit. VETLIFE is doing something that no other organization has been able to successfully do and that is to connect veterans to their benefits on an exceptionally large scale.”

VETLIFE co-founder Cortnie Parish noted that there are more than 43,000 female veterans in Michigan, and many of them have never been recognized for their military service. She says they wanted to change that at this year’s Vet Fest, so they worked with community partners to recognize female heroes. Vet Fest is completely free for veterans and their families. Parish says they want to encourage veterans to seek out their benefits, which is why they’re bringing approved resource providers to the event to help connect them to those military benefits.

Tata Motors sees profits rebound thanks to increased Jaguar Land Rover and lower costs Wed, 09 Nov 2022 13:32:00 +0000

BENGALURU, Nov 9 (Reuters) – India’s Tata Motors (TAMO.NS) said Wednesday it expects earnings and cash flow to rebound in the second half on healthy demand for its Jaguar Land Rover cars and lower domestic steel costs.

Automakers are reaping the benefits of higher prices, a surge in demand for passenger vehicles post-pandemic and lower costs for steel, a key raw material.

“We are seeing a continued increase in demand at JLR,” Chief Financial Officer PB Balaji said on a post-earnings call. The order book is strong thanks to new Range Rover and Range Rover Sport and Defender vehicles, he added.

Passenger vehicle wholesale volume jumped 69% year-on-year to 142,755 vehicles, while Jaguar Land Rover’s wholesale volumes – excluding its China joint venture – jumped 17, 6% to 75,307 units, although below expectations due to chip shortages. Read more

The Chinese market is not a stress at the moment for JLR and the company is focused on in-place sourcing, Balaji said.

Tata Motors, India’s third-largest automaker, has doubled its market share in passenger vehicles to around 14% in the past two years, according to data from the Federation of Automobile Dealers Associations.

Nonprofit tries to reduce black maternal mortality rate in Virginia Sun, 06 Nov 2022 01:23:00 +0000

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) – For the first time, Birth in color RVA provided doula training at Roanoke. Their goal is to train doulas of color in underrepresented communities for free.

“Black women are dying; they’re even afraid to give birth when it’s supposed to be one of the happiest times of their lives,” said Kenda Sutton-El, CEO of Birth in Color RVA.

The CDC reports the maternal mortality rate for black women is three times higher than for white women.

“There’s a bias that black women don’t feel pain like other people and that we’re meant to be that strong person,” Sutton-El added. “That we’re really aggressive when we really aren’t.”

In an effort to change those numbers, Birth in Color has trained over a hundred color doulas across the Commonwealth.

“Having someone who looks like you makes you feel more confident. You’re able to talk about those underlying conditions that you actually have,” Sutton-El explained.

Five doulas graduated Saturday in Roanoke. They provide physical and emotional support to mothers. Newly graduated doula Natalie Cook says this work is needed.

“Doulas can help remind people that mom matters too. And that there is a fourth quarter,” Cook explained. Our work does not stop after birth or after childbirth.

Cook draws on her own experience with back-to-back C-sections at a young age.

“I didn’t have all the support I could have had as a young black woman,” Cook said.

They will provide free services to pregnant women here at home.

“We’re taking ourselves out of the equation and putting mom in it,” newly trained doula Paiton Wainwright said. “So whatever she wants or her wishes or desires than whatever she wants in her birth. That’s what we’re going with.

In January 2022, Virginia expanded coverage of community doula services for Medicaid recipients. The Birth in color RVA the training meets the requirements to register as a supplier. The next training will take place in December.

Latest Study Shows Civil Entrepreneurs Cautious in Expected Changes in Revenue and Profit Margin Tue, 25 Oct 2022 14:34:00 +0000

HAMILTON, NJ–()–The latest edition of The civil quarterly (TCQ) of Dodge Building Network reveals that entrepreneurs continue to expect an increase in revenue and profit margins, but significantly less since last quarter, potentially due to acute supply chain problems and a potential economic slowdown.

The report, produced in partnership with Infotech and hexagonis based on a quarterly survey of civil contractors and engineers that examines the business conditions they face and also includes two unique topics per quarter exploring key trends in this industry.

Responses from civil contractors regarding their market expectations reveal the following:

  • More than half (53%) still expect revenue to increase over the next 12 months, which has dropped significantly since last quarter (66%)

  • Nearly half (45%) expect their profit margin to increase over the next 12 months, but slightly less than last quarter (51%)

In a normal market, these levels of revenue and profit margin expectations would be powerful. However, the decreases in these expectations, compared to the previous quarter, are notable for the lack of correlation with current data indicating the volume of work.

The ratio of the contractor’s current level of arrears to the level he considers ideal is 97, suggesting that he is already close to capacity in his workload. Additionally, 77% report very high levels of confidence in the volume of work in the near future.

Despite notions of a booming market, an indication of what urges caution is that 60% of those who expect reduced revenue and/or profit margin believe that an economic downturn will reduce the number of private projects. This is a significant increase from the 49% reported at the start of 2022. This increase may represent a shift from the assumption that an economic downturn was a short-term problem to the current belief that it will is a longer term problem.

Additionally, contractors continue to report supply chain issues. Almost all (93%) say their construction projects have been impacted by fluctuations in the cost of building materials, and 93% also expect rising building material costs to continue for at least another time. six months.

The combination of these two factors can make entrepreneurs much more cautious about what to expect in the immediate future. However, there are signs that the market will continue to show high levels of activity, as evidenced by the findings of engineers who are experiencing both an overload of pending orders (with a ratio between actual and ideal of 150) and the majority of whom (88%) believe the market will continue to supply them with new work for at least two years.

All of these factors make alternative strategies or ways of doing business increasingly important in the civilian sector. The two special topics included in this quarter’s study both offer ways to help entrepreneurs work more efficiently:

  • Offsite construction: 50% of contractors find that using offsite construction methods such as prefabrication and modular construction improves the cost of their projects compared to projects that do not use this approach. Additionally, 42% find it improves schedule, 34% improves quality and, perhaps most crucial these days, 30% improves supply chain management.

  • E-Bidding: The use of bid aggregation services by entrepreneurs increased between 2020 and 2022 by 8 percentage points to reach 88%. While the most important benefit for contractors is the ability to find good bidding opportunities, many also find that it improves the bidding process by making it faster, easier and more reliable.

The civil quarterly provides a quarterly overview of the current business health of entrepreneurs operating in this dynamic environment and explores industry trends. The report is the result of a partnership with founding partner Infotech® and Platinum Partner hexagon. It is based on original research collected from civil contractors and engineers and is available as a free download to inform stakeholders in the civil construction industry in the United States. Future editions will continue to cover a wide range of related topics providing a comprehensive view of this complex and ever-changing segment of the construction economy.

Decatur nonprofit caught off guard by cold, desperate for donations Thu, 20 Oct 2022 21:55:41 +0000

DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – A Decatur nonprofit says it is in desperate need of community donations after being caught off guard by this week’s cold snap.

“Funding is pretty much non-existent right now,” says Sue Terrell, director of Hands Across Decatur (HAD). “If we don’t have it, volunteers will buy it.”

She says they are not funded by the city or county and operate solely with the help of volunteers and the community.

Terrell says they’re running out of everything from food in the pantry to clothes to keep people warm. And inflation makes exploitation more difficult.

“I spent $365-$400 on bread, bologna…it’s not really healthy, but that’s what we could afford…bologna, eggs, milk, salad potatoes prepared, so we have this to feed them, hot dogs. It’s not really healthy, but it’s better than being hungry,” says Terrell.

Although they are not a shelter, they provide daily meals and a warm place to stay during the day.

“So as a warming center for the community, we have people who come when it’s cold outside. People can’t afford to pay their heating bills…for the elderly, especially, it’s horrible,” Terrell says.

And providing people with enough cold weather gear is an important task.

“People die of cold before they die of heat, and unfortunately, at this moment, this cold snap hit us hard. Because we weren’t ready for that. We weren’t ready at all,” explains Terrell.

That’s why donations like the one made by children to Central Park Baptist Church are so appreciated.

“It doesn’t matter what skin color you have or your financial situation. The cold is cold, so we challenged them to find ways to deal with it. And I’m very proud of them. They did well got by with a few boxes of stuff,” says John Peterson, a member of Central Park Baptist Church.

HAD needs coats, men’s pants size 28-34, white socks, gloves, hand warmers, closed toe men’s shoes size 9-13, tents, blankets, sleeping bags sleeping and food.

“When these people put on their new hats, socks and gloves, I just want them to know that someone loves them,” says John Peterson.

If you’ve felt inspired to donate items or money to help HAD help others this winter, they are accepting donations in person and through the links on their The Facebook page.
