Newell Recycling, one of the largest recyclers and processors of recycled metals in the Southeast, encourages consumers to take advantage of the recently enacted Car Allowance Rebate System (CARS), which President Obama signed into law recently. CARS is a government program that enables consumers to trade in their less fuel efficient vehicles for new, more efficient vehicles.
 
"We are very excited about CARS, which is commonly referred to as Cash For Clunkers, and are looking forward to participating in this worthwhile program," says Frank Goulding, Vice President of Marketing at Newell Recycling. "The NHTSA is currently writing implementing regulations for recently enacted legislation. We expect to see these rules in the next 60 to 90 days."
 
Newell Recycling currently operates two shredder plants in Atlanta and one in Savannah. The 6,000 hp shredder plants are capable of grinding the equivalent of 170 cars per hour into fist-sized pieces. In addition to automobiles, the shredder also processes appliances and demolition scrap. The technology allows Newell Recycling to separate the steel and nonferrous metals into a valuable, furnace-ready raw material for steel mills, foundries and smelters. The metal produced by the shredder can be converted into new metals more easily and cost-effectively than mining the earth, thus saving precious natural resources.
 
In addition to the three shredder plants, Newell Recycling has recycling facilities throughout the Southeast in locations including Allendale, Augusta, Doraville, East Point, Elberton, Lithia Springs, Macon, Rome, Savannah and Statesboro, Georgia. The facilities all accept vehicles for recycling.
Founded in San Antonio, Texas in 1935 by Mr. Alton Scott Newell, a pioneer in the scrap metal industry who also invented the Automobile Shredder, Newell Recycling is recognized as a worldwide leader in ferrous and non-ferrous metal recycling, research and technology.

(CHICAGO, IL – USA) Giuseppe Pinna Named Vice President of Smeraldina Corp

Giuseppe Pinna has been named Vice President of the Smeraldina Corporation, producers of Acqua Smeraldina, a natural artesian water now available in the United States. Pinna oversees Smeraldina’s U.S. operations, which currently include distribution warehouses in Chicago and Fairfield, New Jersey. Additional centers will open soon in Miami and Los Angeles.

The Smeraldina Corporation is a privately owned company that has been in business for more than 20 years, producing highly sought after bottled water known for its many health benefits.

Pinna comes to the Smeraldina Corporation from Patrick Cudahy, Inc., where he worked in sales and marketing for the company’s Italian product line. He also served as Executive Director of the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Chicago. Pinna received an M.B.A. from Loyolya University in Chicago.

“I was born and raised in Sardinia, and for me to represent a company and product of Sardinia is a great opportunity,” says Pinna. “I’ve been drinking Acqua Smeraldina all of my life, and my family in Sardinia drinks it too, and I know firsthand how pure the water is and the associated health benefits. I am very excited to bring Acqua Smeraldina to the American consumer.”

Acqua Smeraldina comes from the beautiful and pristine island of Sardinia, Italy, a remote island in the Mediterranean Sea considered one of the environmentally cleanest locales in Europe. Sardinia is considered a “blue zone” because of the number of residents who live active lives past the age of 100.

Smeraldina natural artesian water is extracted from an underground aquifer 1,000 feet under the Mountain of God in the Gallura region of Sardinia. It takes hundreds of years for rain water to slowly descend through the natural granite filtration system, during which time the water is cleared of its impurities without any sediment being released. The result is a unique, clean and light mineral water that numerous doctors and experts recommend for its perfect balance of sodium, chlorides and bicarbonates, which help to correctly maintain arterial blood pressure.

"The Last Great Teachers: Why Our Children Are Being Poorly Educated" is the next topic for Magnolia Manor on the Coast’s Renaissance Lecture Series. The guest speaker will be Richard Braithwaite, owner of The Braithwaite Learning Center. The event is slated for July 9 at 5 p.m.

Braithwaite, who taught English for 30 years at The Savannah Country Day School, will cover a variety of topics in the shift in teaching methods over the past 50 years. He will touch on the good and the bad of teaching trends and how universities are training new teachers to see their profession as a social science. Braithwaite believes that becoming a teacher is both a calling and an art and the techniques currently used in the classroom are taking the heart and soul out of teaching.

Each month, Magnolia Manor hosts the Renaissance Lecture Series at its Richmond Hill campus. The event begins at 5 p.m. and includes a light supper. After the guest concludes his/her speech, a question and answer session follows. The event is free and open to the public, but guests are asked to RSVP by calling Jennifer Franks at 912-756-4300.

Magnolia Manor on the Coast, located in Richmond Hill, is a non-profit, active, rental retirement community for seniors age 62 and older. It offers 120 one and two-bedroom apartment homes with full kitchens and patios. Located on 40 wooded acres, Magnolia Manor offers stimulating social and cultural activities and has amenities such as a wellness center with indoor exercise pool, barber and beauty salon, library and media center, game and activity rooms, three full-service dining rooms, as well as a formal parlor and chapel.
