Hurricane Isaac

September 1, 2012 Leave a comment

Resumes, resume, Resume, resumes, Resume writer slidell, resume services Slidell, professional resume writer Slidell, Resume writer New Orleans, resume services new orleans, professional resume writer New Orleans. I hope everyone survived Hurricane Isaac.   We’re ok, only tree branches to pick up (thank God).

Some areas of the Northshore were not as fortunate; up to four feet of water in Old Town! And much of New Orleans is still without power.

If anyone is able to and wants to help future Hurricane victims, check out this organization:

evacuteer.org

evacuteer.org

Evacuteer.org  is a non-profit organization that trains volunteers to assist residents in the event of a mandatory evacuation of the City of New Orleans.

The fund raising methods used to raise money for the 3D public art that will double as hurricane evacuation pick up point markers are awesome; classic New Orleans.

Check out the website to donate and for information on becoming a volunteer.

Follow @evacuteer on Twitter for road openings and related Isaac updates.

Stay Safe!

$5 million, 100 jobs on the way at Cape Canaveral

August 9, 2012 Leave a comment

As reported by FLORIDA TODAY staff writer Wayne T. Price and in the accompanying video by Tim Shortt Florida’s Gov. Rick Scott announced submarine missile test system for Cape Canaveral: Navy Strategic System Program at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station will refurbish, and update a submarine missile test complex built in the 1950s.

The historical station was used for manned and unmanned launches until part way through the Apollo Program

A $5 million state contribution will help create 100 federal jobs and, more importantly, secure a key component of Brevard County’s military economy for decades to come.

Approximately 85 percent of the work force will be civilian contractors, including former space shuttle workers. The facility now employs about 800 people: military, federal, and contractors.

After the end of the space shuttle program Florida had the biggest drop in unemployment of any state. See my past posts on the subject:

Space workers struggle a year after last shuttle

High joblessness in the home of U.S. space flight

Price also reports that the Cape Canaveral division of Lockheed Martin Space Systems will be responsible for SWS Ashore facility design and construction, along with infrastructure support.

NASA Announces Space Shuttle Replacement Shortlist

August 4, 2012 Leave a comment

Resumes, resume, Resume, resumes, Resume writer slidell, resume services Slidell, professional resume writer Slidell, Resume writer New Orleans, resume services new orleans, professional resume writer New Orleans.

Jonathan Amos, Science Correspondent for BBC News, reports that NASA has selected three companies that will help in developing launch systems that will take us to the Space Station. This is good news for the thousands of space workers still struggling two years after the last shuttle launch.  Since the Space Shuttle was retired in 2010, American Astronauts have had to hitch rides on Russia’s Soyuz rockets at $60 million a ticket. And I thought $600 to get to Amarillo was expensive!

The companies include the SpaceX firm, aerospace giant Boeing, and the Sierra Nevada Corporation.

Space Exploration Technologies Corporation, or SpaceX, headquartered in Hawthorne, California, is a space transport company founded by former PayPal entrepreneur Elon Musk.

The Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) is considered the Top Woman Owned Federal Contractor in the United States. SNC’s center of operations is in Sparks, Nevada.

The Boeing Company of Houston, Texas, has provided space technology for NASA for years.

I was curious as to when, where, and how many people will be hired to support the space shuttle replacement. The really good news is that Boeing is supporting the Space Launch Systems (SLS) Program at the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Presently, Boeing has seven positions open in New Orleans, LA (posted Aug. 1st & 2nd):
