The Houston men’s golf team had a solid day one showing at the American Athletic Conference Championships on Sunday as they finished the first round five-under-par with a team score of 283 and trailed the leading No. 18 USF Bulls by 16, with an overall score of 573.

A threat of inclement weather led to the tournament having 36 holes on Sunday as opposed to the originally scheduled 18. The increase in holes was no problem for the Cougars, however, as senior Roman Robledo shot two-under par with a score of 142 to tie for sixth after 36 holes.

Ten birdies and an eagle allowed Robledo to reach his top-10 spot, and just outside of the range were freshman Alan De Bondt and senior Kyle Pilgrim, who tied each other for 11th place with individual scores of 143.

Closing out the competition for the Cougars were the finishes of sophomore Matt Scobie and junior Vincent Martino in 25th and 33rd with scores of 149 and 151, respectively.

The AAC Championships continue and conclude on Monday as the Cougars are set to finish their 54-hole run and will learn their fate concerning the NCAA postseason during the selection show on May 4.

Used Engines Now Shipping to San Jose, CA Through Nationwide Engine Retailer Website

In stock used engines for sale are now shipping to San Jose, CA through the local dealer network setup at the PreownedEngines.com website at http://preownedengines.com/san-jose-ca-used-motors.

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 27, 2015

Shipments of automobile engines to the West Coast have been in the planning stages at the PreownedEngines.com since the start of 2015. Working with new suppliers has now created the ability to ship used engines to San Jose, CA and other local markets this year at http://preownedengines.com/san-jose-ca-used-motors.

The arrangement of direct shipments inside of the metro area and throughout the rest of Santa Clara County should help improve sales figures at the Preowned Engines company. The concept of using more local freight companies and fulfillment partners has contributed to more company growth in the Western half of the U.S.

“Our supply of gasoline, diesel and hybrid auto engines that are in used condition can now be ordered by more San Jose or surrounding cities residents,” said one PreownedEngines.com rep.

The shipments that can now be arranged include consumer orders for older vehicle motors. Because auto parts retail stores do not stock used inventory, the emergence of shippable motor inventory should fill a void found at the community level in some CA cities.

“Anyone can now make use of our digital inventory search tool in order to find an I4, V8 or diesel powered block to purchase,” said the rep.

The Preowned Engines company installed a way for purchasers of automobile motors to explore its real time inventory earlier this year. This search tool now includes applicable freight charges and delivery estimates to help people accurately estimate total used engine pricing online.

About PreownedEngines.com

The PreownedEngines.com company adjusts the inventory of used condition auto motors that people can buy on its website daily. Through a newly designed computer system, each and every unit now for sale is accurately described and priced based on mileage. The PreownedEngines.com company has added new members to its team in 2015 that help to handle daily customer service requests nationally.

Safway Group Becomes Alliance Partner to Support Safety Week, May 3- 9, 2015

Company-wide Stand-down for Safety Planned

WAUKESHA, Wis. (PRWEB) April 27, 2015

Safway became an alliance partner with The Construction Industry Safety Initiative and the Incident & Injury-Free Executive Forum, which together include over 40 national and global construction firms, to inspire everyone in the industry to be leaders in safety during Safety Week, May 3 to 9, 2015. Additionally, Safway will continue to partner with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, OSHA and The Center for Construction Research and Training on the second annual national initiative to prevent falls, the leading cause of work-related injury and deaths.

At every Safway Group jobsite across North America, safety personnel and managers will hold stand-downs during Safety Week 2015. “This is an opportunity for everyone who works for Safway to participate in discussions regarding fall prevention and safety initiatives,” said Paul Amedee, vice president of Environmental Health and Safety for Safway. “While Safway improved its Total Recordable Incident Rate by 22 percent in 2014, we never want to stop emphasizing safety as our No. 1 value. We are committed to continual improvement and setting even higher goals for ourselves in safety.”

The theme Safway developed for this year’s companywide stand-down was, I OWN SAFETY. “We wanted to emphasize the need for all of us to take personal responsibility for our own safety as well as the safety of our co-workers, customers and contractors,” explained Amedee.

In addition, Safway is planning to focus on the following critical areas during the Safety Week stand-down:

  • Fall Prevention — Safway requires every employee to be protected from fall hazards, which includes a 100-percent tie-off, safe work practice policy.
  • Stop Work Authority — When there is a situation where employees, equipment or the environment are at risk or in danger, every Safway employee has the authority to stop work immediately.
  • Safety Observation Program — An important part of Safway’s 2015 safety plan is an observation program, which includes coaching and mentoring, conducting better observations, and providing timely tracking and sharing of trends.

“Thanks to our Safety Climate Perception Survey, which was conducted in December 2014, we now have a better understanding of Safway’s safety culture, where we can improve and what we need to focus on,” added Amedee. “This will allow us to keep improving our safety performance.”

During the companywide stand-down, all Safway employees will receive hardhat stickers, water bottles and bandanas with the “I OWN SAFETY” logo.

LG Earns Design for Recycling® Award

LG Electronics has received the highest honor from the leading recycling industry group – the 2015 Design for Recycling® (DfR) Award bestowed by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI).

At the award ceremony at the conclusion of its 2015 conference in Vancouver, Canada, ISRI recognized LG “for advanced new television products that emphasize recycling during every lifecycle phase.”

Specifically, LG is being recognized for its 4K ULTRA HD OLED and LED TVs. According to ISRI, the product design for these models include the following recycling-friendly traits: mercury-free display panels; use of recycled and recyclable plastics; inclusion of PVC- and BFR-free components; smaller and lighter packaging; ease of disassembly; and standardized materials and connection types. 

Accepting the award on behalf of LG Electronics, Dr. Nandhu Nandhakumar, Senior Vice President at the LG Technology Center of America, said, “Our Design for Recycling initiatives represent a key element of LG’s Green Product Strategy under the company’s strategic roadmap to develop products that reduce negative environmental impacts throughout the lifecycle, especially when they are ready for recycling. [LINK TO VIDEO]

“LG’s industry-leading OLED and ULTRA HD TVs recognized by ISRI embody LG’s strategic direction for products with greener features designed to reduce the environmental load at every stage of the product lifecycle,” he said. “We look for ways to improve product recyclability before we begin developing a product, and reduce negative environmental impacts by designing our products: for easier part identification and access; for easier disassembly; and for better material recyclability.”

ISRI President Robin Wiener said, “Commitment to sustainability serves as a core principle for LG. The initiatives they have undertaken to increase product recyclability, improve resource efficiency, and expand the use of recycled materials within the manufacturing process made LG a perfect selection for this year’s award. ISRI is proud to present the 2015 Design for Recycling Award to LG for prioritizing recyclability in the design and manufacture of its products.”

To be eligible for ISRI’s Design for Recycling® Award, a product must be designed/ redesigned and manufactured to:

  • Contain the maximum amount of materials that are recyclable;
  • Be easily recycled through current or newly designed recycling processes and procedures;
  • Be cost effective to recycle whereby the cost to recycle does not exceed the value of its recycled materials;
  • Be free of hazardous materials that are not recyclable or impede the recycling process;
  • Minimize the time and cost involved to recycle the product;
  • Reduce the use of raw materials by including recycled materials and/or components; and
  • Have a net gain in the overall recyclability of the product while reducing the overall negative impact on the environment.

ISRI began presenting the award more than 25 years ago. Previous winners include Dell, Inc., Cascades Fine Papers Group, Coca-Cola Recycling Company, Hewlett-Packard, The Herman Miller Company, and Wind Simplicity.
