Every year the Better Business Bureau gives its coveted Torch award to selected companies that demonstrate high ethical values in their operations. Companies nominated for the award often undergo several screening processes before they are selected by a panel of independent judges.
Aloha construction from Illinois happened to be the proud recipient of the Better Business Bureau (BBB) 2017 award. They were awarded for their spectacular ethical marketing practices. According to the panel of judges that was involved in the selection, Aloha emerged the overall best because of several reasons including its contribution to the local community.

Aloha Construction and its community service program

The company worked closely with Omni Youth Services in identifying families to assist.

Robert Deignan is the co founder and chief executive officer of a digital support company called ATS Digital Services. The company specializes in digital support which helps a number of consumers address their various technological issues. These issues range from problems with connectivity to general troubleshooting of devices. Deignan’s company ATS Digital Services provides assistance to customers who are dealing with their technological concerns on a remote basis as well.
Before Robert started up his company ATS Digital Services, he attended Purdue University on a football scholarship. When attending college and playing football, Robert completed a degree in organizational leadership. He was drafted to play in the NFL and was a member of the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets in 1997 and 1998 respectively. After a brief playing career in the NFL, Robert co founded a company called Fanlink Inc which was the first of his independent business ventures. He still participates in sports such as fishing where he regularly participates in various tournaments. Deignan currently lives in his native home area of Miami/Fort Lauderdale Florida with his wife and son.
When it came to his business idea, Robert got it from his previous experience working at a company. Before he started his company, Robert worked at a firm that specialized in Anti Malware. During his time at this firm, the company was having difficulty in getting their software installed on a user’s machine. The company had a trial software policy where if users were happy using the software, they were allowed to buy it after 15 days for free. In 2009, the company had difficulty getting the anti malware software installed. In an effort to resolve this, the company would use a phone number for people to call and talk about their own difficulties downloading the software. Through conversations, the company realized that malware has certain software that blocks the installation of certain software. Therefore, the company used technical support personnel to help users remotely. This led to Robert coming up with an idea to provide technical services for computer users who are experiencing difficulty with technical issues.

While many thought the inclusion of Waiakea, Inc. in the 2017’s list of Inc. Magazine would be the most significant milestone in the year for the company, Waiakea recently announced it would embrace the use of degradable bottles in the next year. The announcement from the premium bottled water company is taking the CPG (consumer packaged goods) industry by storm.
Ryan Emmons founded Waiakea in 2012, and the firm has accomplished a lot including partnering with Timeplast, the only company in the U.S with a patent recognized by USPTO regarding degradation of plastics. Timeplast developed the first additive for nano-degradation of plastics. The additive hastens the biodegradation of plastics reducing their lifespan to 15 years, down from 1500 years, remarkable. Waiakea will be the first firm in the CPG to use the Timeplast’s additive.
Emmons stressed that conventional plastics exist for over a millennium but with the revolutionary additive, they will no longer be a nuisance in the environment. He remains optimistic that his company will encourage other companies to adopt the use of the Timeplast’s additive. The fact that the Timeplast’s additive is cost-effective (one pound of the additive alters the degradability of over one thousand pounds of ordinary plastics) makes Emmons believe that many companies in the CPG industry will embrace it. Read more about Waiakea Water on Medical Daily.
Manuel Rendon, an engineer at Timeplast, confirmed that creating the additive was challenging. He said that Timeplast performed over 1200 experiments in a five-year period to come up with the additive. Rendon is excited that Waiakea Water has been with the company all through and that Waiakea will be the first company to launch the bottles incorporating the additive. He concluded by emphasizing the dedication of Waiakea to socially conscious causes.

The full opening of the Mexican oil and natural gas industry to private investment got a little closer this past May when American company Talos Energy, English firm Premier Oil PLC, and Sierra Gas & Oil of Mexico sunk an offshore oil well in the Gulf of Mexico and started drilling. Petroleos Mexicanos, the state-run oil monopoly, had been the only company to drill for oil in Mexican waters since 1938 when the oil industry was nationalized.
The offshore oil well is located in the Sureste Basin near the Mexican state of Tabasco. The Zama-1 well has a high geological expectation of success, and hopes to tap into the almost 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude that are in the Sureste Basin. Talos will operate the well, and holds a 35% ownership stake, with Premier owning 25% and Sierra owning 40%.
Talos Energy is a Houston-based oil and gas company. It is a private company that focuses on exploration, development, and production of oil and natural gas in the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf Coast. While the company was founded in 2012, CEO Timothy Duncan is a veteran of the oil and gas industry. Duncan started out at Gryphon Exploration, and was a part of Phoenix Exploration before the company was sold to the Apache Corporation in 2011. Looking to start a company that rewarded workers who wanted to share ideas and act as entrepreneurs, Duncan founded Talos in 2012 with some of this previous partners at Phoenix Exploration.
Named as the top small company to work for in 2013 by the Houston Chronicle, Talos Energy rewards the talent at the company not with perks, but instead with equity. Talos compensates all employees with a stake in the company, including the receptionists and the geologists, as well as the upper management of the firm. By including each and every employee in the future success of the company, the firm has shown a commitment to innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit, something that one often finds in tech start-ups, but rarely in the oil & gas industry.

Recent Briefing Given to HSF’s José Auriemo Neto – Paraphrase
Great, Mr. Neto: Your business is well, Thanks. One last instruction: These are stories about antique items that happened in the past when the antique item was in use. So, imagine the stories happening sometime between 1900 and 1975. So, there shouldn’t be any references to cell phones, internet, microwaves, etc.
One more note regarding tone based on some of the stories I have received so far. Sometimes authors have submitted stories in a tone that’s like they’re telling the story to their friend or neighbor. I am sending across is a picture of the audience for this story.
Pretend these people just walked up to you at an antique store and asked you to tell them the story behind the item they are holding. Please do not write a story in a tone like you’re telling it to your aunt. Look to the compact story for a great example of what I am going for.

You may have wondered why the average lifespan of the past three generations has only dwindled – more so now than ever before – into the 70s, 80s and even 90s. Friend, it’s that beautiful thing called “the fruit.” Ever heard of it?

Indeed, that “thing” has been replaced in modern decades. It’s a sad fact. Another two, which now go by the name of “candy” and “artificial flavoring“, for instance, have taken its place among youth.
