By admin – March 30, 2018 WhatsApp Twitter Odessa College Foundation received a $10,000 infusion from Chevron for the Chevron Instrumentation Scholarship, which will help about 20 students.The check was presented in the Saulsbury Conference Center in the Electronics Technology Building at OC. The contribution continues Chevron’s support for the instrumentation program and those who receive the support must be an instrumentation major seeking a certificate in instrumentation; maintain a minimum overall GPA of 2.5; and must have a 3.0 or higher GPA in their instrumentation courses. The scholarship awards are $500 per semester.Dean of Career Technical & Workforce Education Diane Carrasco said with this growth comes a responsibility to develop a skilled, robust workforce that will join the Permian Basin’s energy sector.“Odessa College is honored to partner with Chevron in developing this workforce. Thank you to Chevron for being a partner in this development because we certainly couldn’t make it happen without you,” Carrasco said.

Chevron presented Odessa College with a check in the amount of $10,000 Wednesday in the Electronics and Technology Building at OC. OC.Chevron. 1 of 2 “One of the prominent reasons our students struggle to complete a credential is financial instability and it is through generous donations such as today’s that’s going to help scholarship students complete their program,” she added.Carrasco added that the OC-Chevron partnership has led to equipment and renovations that have made it possible for those gathered Wednesday to stand in “this beautifully designed Chevron Regional Center for Energy Education.”Phets Sovilay, operations recruiter for Chevron, said the company is happy to be part of the partnership and glad to present the check.“We’ve had a tremendous partnership with Odessa College throughout the years and we hope to continue that. One of the things that we have as far as our Chevron values go is partnership, so we’re strengthening this partnership and with that we’re helping the community grow and that’s what we’re all about,” Sovilay said.Vice President for Instruction Valerie Jones said contributions like this have a tremendous impact on students and can transform their lives.“It is really impressive the technology our students have access to and it’s made possible through the partnerships we’ve had with Chevron …,” Jones said.She added that the Fab Lab is another example of the fruits of Chevron’s support.Williams added that new employees, faculty members and technology have been added to the instrumentation program.“We have four full-time faculty, plus adjuncts. The classes are all full,” Jones said.The program includes mostly adult students, but also youngsters attending OCTECHS, an early college high school on the OC campus where students can earn a high school diploma and associate degree simultaneously.Equipment and technology change so rapidly that partnerships are needed, Jones said.“(The) industry continues to change and grow so rapidly, we need them to tell us what direction things are going so they can help with the development of the training concepts as well,” Jones said.Sovilay, operations recruiter for Chevron, said the way donations to OC helps the company is that OC is partnered with the community to help advance education in the Permian Basin.“One of our core values at Chevron is strengthening our partnerships with our communities, so this is one of the ways we do that. By donating money and scholarships to OC, we want to help enable students to be able to come to a place like OC to get that technical education,” Sovilay said.“That way, they can explore career options. They don’t necessarily have to go to work in the oil and gas industry. They don’t necessarily have to come work for Chevron specifically, but it at least gives them that pathway to explore those options. If they did want to come work for a company like Chevron, that’s why we donate money for OC,” he added.Jones said instrumentation, which is used interchangeably with automation and robotics.“It’s the utilization of technology and machinery through computer programming to be able to navigate and manage tasks,” Jones said. “That may be pressure management in a plant … the automation of factory equipment. It can be running the oil and gas machinery remotely. It’s all of those types of things.”More Information OCA top 2 were ESL students Summer Spaghetti SaladSmoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionVirgin Coco MojitoPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay

Your personal leadership counts for a lot more than who leads the United States. And your personal economy has very little to do with the economy of the United States. With all the hoopla around this election, you should make some elections of your own.Elect YourselfThere is an election being held every day, and your vote is the only vote that counts.You can elect to believe that your fate hinges on who is elected to hold what must be the worst job in the world, the Presidency of the United States. Or you can elect to embrace the truth: you will succeed or fail to produce the results and the life you want based on your beliefs, your efforts, and your results. President be damned.You can elect to get up early each day, make a list of your most important outcomes, and go to town on that list. Or you can elect to blame your poor results on factors that are completely out of your control. One choice leads to certain success. The other leads to something less than that.You can elect to develop yourself both personally and professionally so that you can become a greater economic engine, creating more and more value as you grow. Or you can vote not to grow and, by doing so, limit the value you create—and the value that you claim for creating it. One vote builds your personal economy; the other destroys it.The Spoils Go to Those Who VoteRegardless of who is elected, those that choose to do better in the next four years will do better. Period. They are electing to succeed in spite of any perceived external factors, including the shifting political winds. Those that elect to look for an improvement in their life from something—or someone—outside of themselves will fare no better than they have in the past. That’s what makes your personal election more important than any other election in which you will participate. Even your vote for President.Go ahead and vote. It’s your right and your duty as a citizen to participate in the experiment that is this democratic republic. But once you’ve cast your ballot in favor of whatever flavor of elected officials suit your political philosophy and worldview, go ahead and elect to do everything necessary to produce the life and the results that you really want. Make a better election.

That reason is because you make it easier to say “yes,” and because that “yes” is progress.When you ask for an appointment, your dream client imagines the worst of all possible outcomes. They imagine that you have no agenda, that you are going to try to build rapport with some clumsy story about how much you have in common, and that you are going to be impossible to get rid of. Even if none of these things are true, you are paying for the sins of the bad salespeople who have come before you.When you ask for 20-minutes to provide an executive briefing, the commitment is greatly reduced, as is their fear. You have a commitment of 20-minutes, not an open-ended meeting. That improves the commitment.Much of the time when you ask for a commitment your dream client believes you are going to ask them to make a decision to buy. The reason so many of your prospective clients let your calls go to voice mail and refuse to answer your email is because they don’t want to give you a decision. They’re not ready to decide.By asking for a meeting to review ideas and resolve concerns, you can reduce the commitment level. You can even say as much by saying, “Look, you aren’t going to be ready to make a decision yet, but we should get together so I can answer your questions and resolve any concerns you may have.” That’s a commitment that allows you to move forward without causing your dream client to resist the meeting because they don’t want to tell you “no.”You don’t move deals faster by outpacing your dream client. To go faster, you have to slow down and bring your dream client along with you. By reducing the commitment your dream client needs to make to things that will help them move forward with you, you speed things up.A commitment to move forward is better than no commitment, and it’s far better than asking for a commitment that causes your dream client to avoid you.

87654321abcdefgh After snacking nervously with this chess idea in our heads, my parents and I emerged from a serviceless restaurant worried (or at least I was) that we may have missed the final Norwegian triumph and the de facto end of the world championship. Someone may have won! We found instead that we hadn’t missed many moves and that Caruana hadn’t bit on Carlsen’s aggressive pawn sacrifice. No devastating attack had come. The position (my phone told me) was once again level. It looked drawish.Wine store: drawish. Whole Foods: drawish. Elevator: drawish.When we arrived at last at my sister’s apartment, her boyfriend already had both the chess game and the football game on large screens, thereby forever cementing his value to the family. He’s not much of a chess player, but he did have some interesting thoughts on rook endgames. Lucky thing, too, because by that point the game looked like this.

The county’s deputy public heath officer, Dr. Dean Sidelinger said it’s important to boost immunizations rates.“If vaccination rates go down, it is easier for someone who has measles to spread that disease in our community so we went to keep vaccination rates high. School entry laws that require vaccines on entry to school are the one of the most effective tools we have to ensure that our children and the broader population are immunized,” Sidelinger said.There are some exemptions for immunizations, which are required for students attending public and private schools in California. Prior to the 2016-2017 school year, parents could obtain an exemption from immunizations for personal beliefs. With a change in state law, most exemptions are now only issued for medical reasons.According to the Department of Public Health, the number of permanent medical exemptions written in San Diego County has increased. State health officials reported 599 medical exemptions in 2018-2019, which was five times more than the 108 that were written by doctors in 2015-2016, the year before the ban on personal belief exemptions took effect.As San Diego gets ready for a busy summer travel season, the public health department is also sending out letters to members of the Filipino community to suggest vaccinations for anyone who is traveling to the Philippines, which has one of the world’s largest active measles outbreaks.
