More than a half dozen lawsuits from victims and their families have already been filed against several defendants, including Scott and concert promoters Live Nation and ScoreMore.Houston-based Buzbee Law Firm scheduled a news conference on Monday to announce a lawsuit on behalf of Axel Acosta, 21, who died at the festival, as well as other victims.

Police have opened a criminal investigation, in part based on reports that someone in the audience may have injected a security guard with drugs.

Officials have also said they intend to examine whether security plans were flawed or followed improperly.

Details about the victims, who ranged in age from 14 to 27, have begun to emerge, as friends and family shared remembrances.

HIGH SCHOOL FRESHMAN

The youngest, John Hilgert, was a freshman at the Houston-area Memorial High School.Over the weekend, members of the community put up green ribbons around campus in honor of Hilgert, whose favorite color was green, according to local television station KHOU.

Hilgert was an avid baseball player, according to posts on social media from those who knew him.

"He wanted to be the best he could be every day, every game, every pitch," Jordan Venable, the director of a travel baseball club that Hilgert had played for since he was 12, wrote on Facebook, adding that Hilgert had an "unforgettable smile."

Brianna Rodriguez, 16, was a member of the band at Heights High School in Houston who loved to dance.

"Brianna was someone who performed with the band and was someone who could always make anyone smile," the band's Twitter account wrote.

Her family set up an online fundraiser to help pay for funeral expenses.

Two college students originally from Naperville, Illinois - Franco Patino, 21, who attended the University of Dayton, and Jacob Jurinek, 20, who attended Southern Illinois University - also died at the concert, according to their schools.

Patino, a mechanical engineering technology major, was a member of several campus organizations, including Alpha Psi Lambda, a Hispanic interest fraternity and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers.

"Jacob was a creative, intelligent young man, with a promising career in journalism and advertising," Austin Lane, the chancellor at Southern Illinois, said in a statement confirming Jurinek's death.(Reporting by Erwin Seba and Joseph Ax; Additional reporting by Barbara Goldberg, Nathan Frandino, Brendan O'Brien, Daniel Trotta, Shivam Patel and Tim Reid; Editing by Steve Orlofsky)

Green Living and Recycling

Instead of paying out for your details to be deleted you may as well build some cash and get it erased for no cost.

Recycling is important because the energy used to recycle a product is less than the energy used to create something new. Recycling helps to save money, energy and lots of natural resources which further helps the environment. Selling your work online has distinct benefits.

The reason is the complexity associated with the process and its high cost as compared to the benefits. The best way to ensure that you make a decent living is to sell art online. You can find recycling bins in a variety of sizes and colors. We are also the largest residential recycler and a leading developer, operator and owner of waste-to-energy facilities in the United States.

These chemicals have adverse effects on the environment.

Denim beach or laundry bag Though jeans made of denim are very sturdy and rarely wear-out easily, people may not keep them for too long for numerous reasons. Computer recycling and the recycling of most other waste can be done for free if you bring your waste to the recycling center.

This automatically means that less harmful gases are released into the atmosphere. Glass Recycling One of the most interesting thing about glass is that glass can be recycled again and again. Today, recycling of Aluminium scrap saves up to 80 million tonnes of greenhouse emissions per year, which is equivalent to the emission of 15 million cars.

Home recycle bins are manufactured in virtually any size and configuration imaginable. The Environmental Cost of Auto Recycling Experts estimate that the manufacturing of each vehicle requires 120 gigajoules of energy. In addition, tables, chairs, mats, bookcases, toys, playground equipment, and everything else needed to provide a good experience for children is very expensive.Have you always dreamed of starting your own auto recycling business? Another technique that uses recycled paper is the papier-mache technique.

Such a surface (like concrete) will protect the earth from unexpected spills. This is the reason that plastic recycling is being seriously considered by most nations.

Every size and shape is available as well to fit into any indoor or outdoor space. Virgin glass is manufactured by mixing sand, soda ash, and limestone if recycled glass is available it will be included in this mixture, which is then heated to 2700 degrees until it reaches a melted state.

A probable solution for such growing concerns can be through the implementation of these three measures- Recycle, Reuse and Reduce. melted bottles

Thus, recycling a large percentage of landfill waste could help to reduce environmental issues and ease the burden on these dumping sites.

A baby on an average, generates a ton of garbage a year. The more people step forward to buy recycled products, the better the success of the process can be ensured. This involves sending the employees out to go and collect any trash around the compound. While recycling has been available on campus, this new single-stream program allows students, faculty, staff and others to easily recycle paper, plastics, cardboard, tin, aluminum and other materials in one receptacle.

Our health also benefits from recycling, as it removes pollution and harmful substances from the waste stream.

The scrap plastic is then washed and ground to smaller flakes.

It is argued that global warming has the potential to destroy humanity, because of the various spin off effects that come along with it. This is because all of these old electronic devices, or ewaste, can impart harmful toxins and chemicals into the Earth if they are not processed in a specific way that is safe.

Finding a local skip hire company is very easy now that we have the internet and a simple search for inshot Skip Hire Stockport should give you a list of local skip hire companies in your local area who have websites. You can also bring items in to be recycled, which is often free and because there are many centers conveniently located in the San Diego area, you do not have to make a long trip.You can do your part to keep the Earth healthy and clean by recycling. Recycling 1 ton of aluminum can save up to 27 cubic yards of landfill space.

Creative solutions for making it easy and convenient to recycle from any room in the house play a key role in getting everyone on board with a program.

Upcycling and recycling are not just two different terms; they are two entirely different concepts as well. The plastic goods are then sorted according to their plastic type. Assistance is certainly at hand so we can support individuals and businesses decide to use your perfect dimensions with regard to a skip concerning the rubbish whether or not the materials should be for rubbish recycling or even tip, presuming its appropriate.

Recycling is very important for having a green Earth.Technology makes our life easier. It's high time we focus on green technology. I dedicated my entire careerer about this. I owe a site about Bottle Crafting.

How Facebook Is Using Renewable Energy To Power Its Green Data Centers

According to Facebook, as of the end of 2016, nearly one billion people used this social media platform and other apps that come under its umbrella.

Despite this enormous user-base, Facebook's carbon impact per person has remained almost the same as it was in 2004 when this friendship platform used to have just one million users. With their worldwide initiatives to add more renewable energy sources to the grid, this Mark Zuckerberg-founded organization has inspired the entire nation, video editing especially sun-kissed cities like Tampa, in creating sustainable environments.

Facebook claims that the environmental impact of using Facebook per person, per year is less than that of making a medium-sized latte. How did the social media giant make this possible? It uses hyper-efficient data centers and insists on powering them with clean and renewable energy.

One of its goals is to have "100 percent clean and renewable energy in our mix for our entire operation." Once Facebook accomplishes this mission, it will enter the elite club of Netflix, Kohls, and REI - the three companies that currently meet 100 percent of their electricity needs from renewable sources.

Here are a few data center facts that Facebook shares publicly to inspire other corporate entities to follow in their footsteps:

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();
  • Facebook powers its three giant data centers in Lulea (Sweden), Altoona (Iowa), and Fort Worth (Texas) with 100 percent renewable energy.

    Each of the facilities is tracked by renewable energy certificates. Not in the US alone, Facebook maintains the same stringent green standards for all other data centers it operates in the other parts of the world. The company's recently announced data centers in Ireland, New Mexico, Denmark will also run on 100 percent clean and renewable energy.

  • As far as its Altoona facility is concerned, Facebook tied up with the local utility and a local developer to contribute 140 megawatts (MW) of renewable energy to the grid.

    The same amount of electricity is sufficient to power more than 40,000 households in Iowa.

  • Sprawled across a 345-acre campus, the Facebook data center in Ohio has cost the city of New Albany $25 million in infrastructure improvements. In return, the tech-giant has created at least 100 full-time jobs and thousands of construction jobs.

It will be worthwhile to mention here that besides Facebook, Google is also on its way to meet its 100 percent sustainability goals.

The search giant has recently announced that it will be able to achieve 100% sustainable status by the end of 2017. Apple is not far behind too; it is also nearing its 100 percent sustainability goal as well. Beyond Silicon Valley, Facebook's passionate involvement is inspiring more and more emerging business hubs in places like Tampa to embrace renewable energy for running their operations.

Facebook is also encouraging companies to embrace the Corporate Renewable Energy Buyers' Principles. More than 50 companies have already participated in the program.

TotalEnergies CEO Pouyanné subject of preliminary conflict of…

PARIS, Sept 22 (Reuters) - Patrick Pouyanné, chief executive of France's TotalEnergies, is the subject of a preliminary probe opened by French financial prosecutor's office after a complaint alleging he abused his role on the board of a university to push the company's agenda, Le Monde newspaper reported on Wednesday.

The complaint was filed at the end April by the French arm of Greenpeace, as well as by anti-corruption group ANTICOR, and an association called La Sphinx, quik - read this blog post from blog.teknokrat.ac.id, which says it represents students and alumni of the university.

The board of the prestigious Ecole Polytechnique voted in 2020 to allow TotalEnergies to build a research and innovation centre on the university's campus in Saclay, south of Paris.

The complaint alleged that Pouyanné used his position on the university's board to influence that decision.

The prosecutor's office did not reply to a Reuters request for comment.

TotalEnergies said it would issue a statement from Pouyanne soon, without giving a precise timeframe.

In an earlier statement, Totalenergies said Pouyanne had never taken part in decisions by the university board concerning the company and he had recused himself when the topic came up.

TotalEnergies, along with other major energy producers, has been under scrutiny from green groups that say the industry is adding to climate change by promoting the use of carbon dioxide-emitting fossil fuels.(Reporting by Benoit Van Overstraeten; Editing by Edmund Blair)
