Thunderstorms drop month’s worth of rain on London in one afternoon

On May 29, massive thunderstorms caused flash flooding in areas of London. The storms dropped almost a month’s worth of rain on southeast England in just a few hours.

A representative of the city’s fire brigade told media outlets that the rescue service received over 100 flood-related calls due to the rain. Meanwhile, some railway lines were submerged, forcing the temporary cancelation of train service to certain parts of the city.

Gatwick Airport, located in the southern portion of London, also canceled a number of flights due to the weather.

Lightning from the storms was blamed for causing at least two fires in north and west London, and at least 30 homes experienced significant flooding. Four people also had to be rescued from their flooded cars in the east part of the city.

London wasn’t the only area to be negatively impacted by the storms. Kent, Maidstone, Gravesham and Swale were also hit hard, and the A249, M2 and M20 highways had to be closed due to heavy flooding.

According to the Kent Fire and Rescue Service, a man had to be rescued from his submerged car in Teynham. Another man also called for help after being trapped in his flooded home in Chatham.

A weather presenter from the BBC said that the most violent storms had likely passed, but more heavy rain was expected over the next few days.

Rescue services reminded the public to avoid driving on flooded roads and to be on the lookout for fallen trees.

Busking Goes High-Tech Across London; Performers Are Cashing In

A busker is a street performer who generally plays music and depends on donations from the public.

The city of London is rolling out a cashless system called “Tap-to-Pay” to help talented individuals earn more money in a culture where most folks don’t carry cash or even spare change on them anymore. The Verge reported that London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan developed the project in participation with PayPal’s new payment service iZettle and the “Busk in London” organization.

The concept will be spread out across London’s 32 boroughs and involves quite the high-tech ingenuity.

The idea works like this: Street performers are outfitted with card readers that allow passersby to make a pre-set donation. They do that by simply tapping their payment devices (mobile wallet, tablet, etc.).

Buskers are delighted with the concept and believe it creates a domino effect. One busker who joined the trial to test the system, Charlotte Campbell, noted that when one person taps, it encourages others to do so. She believes it’s a worthy project, especially since it was created by city officials.

Mayor Khan calls it a win-win for the U.K.’s capital because it lets tourists and residents alike to appreciate the many street performers who entertain thousands daily.

The world has become a cashless society, and if buskers don’t find a way to keep up with the changing times, their art could become distinct. Many believe that iZettle’s tech-upgrade is the wave of the future.

iZettle has announced that their Tap-to-Pay system will soon be used for more charities and also be made available to small businesses.

iZettle is a fin-tech startup company from Sweden; PayPal recently shelled out $2.2 billion to buy it. It’s the largest acquisition PayPal has ever made. PayPal operates in 200 countries; this gives iZettle global recognition.

Disposable Coffee Cups Banned in Scottish Government Buildings

Visitors to the Scottish government buildings will now be required to bring in their own reusable mugs if they wish to partake in a hot beverage away from a cafe location.

The new rule, which bans single-use coffee cups in many main buildings, will take effect on June 4 in an effort to reduce the astronomical amount of disposable cups used each year in the buildings. Officials estimate that over 450,000 cups are thrown away each year in government offices.

Affected locations include all of the cafes and restaurants in Saughton House, Victoria Quay, Marine Lab, St. Andrew’s House, Atlantic Quay, and Buchanan House. Visitors can still order warm beverages to be consumed onsite in ceramic mugs. Building staff are encouraged to bring in their own reusable containers for personal use. Workers in the buildings were told of the changes at the beginning of May to allow for ample preparation.

The new rule follows the lead of the Scottish Parliament, which banned the use of plastic drinking straws in its bars and cafes. By making this move, the Parliament building was able to eliminate the use of approximately 4,00 plastic straws every year.

The ban on single-use cups was encouraged by Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham. She asserts that Scotland is eager to lead by example and also followed the lead set by the European Union (EU). Last week, the EU proposed a ban on many disposable plastic items including plates, cutlery, and straws. The proposal by the European Commission is an effort to minimize the growing and concerning issue of ocean pollution.

Zipcar Expanding in London

Zipcar is an American company that allows members to pick up a car in one section of a city, drive it to their destination and leave the car at that place. There is no need to return a car to a rental agency.

Zipcar is now planning to expand into the London market with a fleet of all-electric vehicles. Zipcar has an agreement with Volkswagen to supply 300 Volskwagen e-Golfs to the city of London by the end of 2018. These vehicles will produce absolutely no greenhouse gas emissions.

This new expansion is viewed as having winners in multiple areas. Zipcar will be able to expand its business in one of the busiest cities in the world. There are currently 200,000 registered Zipcar members in the greater London area.

Those who don’t want to own a car will benefit from the service. Many only need a car occasionally, and this service will meet a growing need.

London is having air-quality issues, and the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has issued a transportation initiative that has called for more utilization of public transportation. He also wants car free days in some areas. However, zero emission cars such as this Volkswagen e-Golfs would help to alleviate some of the air quality problems within the city.

Another potential winner is Volkswagen. The scandal surrounding Volkswagen’s diesel cars has hurt the company. Good publicity from its association with Zipcar can only help to boost Volkswagen’s reputation.

If this initial roll out of e-vehicles is successful, Zipcar plans to add additional vehicles to its London fleet. By the end of the year, the number of Zipcar zero emission vehicles in London may be near 325.

Meet The Three Principals Who Have Made Fortress Investment Group What It Is Today

When Fortress Investment Group was starting 20 years ago, it would be hard to fathom what it would turn to be today. Although some people can say that a keen eye would tell someone looking at the firm what would come of it, nobody can be certain. At least, what many know is what happened some 11 years ago when Fortress Group made the announcement about its bid to appear in the New York Stock Exchange. This IPO will never be deleted from the memory of members of the public. Since appearing for the first time in the NYSE as a private firm, things have been getting bigger and better for Fortress Group. Because you this, the number of investors has been increasing steadily. Today, 20 years after FIG was founded, there are more than 1, 750 investors who accumulatively have an investment that is valued at $43 billion.

During a recent press conference, Fortress Investment Group CEO and Founder Randal Nardone said that he attributes the progress to the strategies the principals have put in place. All the three principals namely Randal Nardone, Wes Edens, and Peter Briger have different skills. When these three guys bring together their many years of expertise, you can expect that FIG won’t sink. Instead, as Wes puts it, the firm will turn out to have thousands of people investing. For now, this private equity firm has narrowed down its scope to cover five broad areas of investments. The five facets of investment schemes are asset-based investing, corporate mergers as well as acquisitions, and capital markets. The other two guys, Peter Briger and Wes Edens have also injected enormous efforts to ensure FIG does not remain where it was several years ago.

Using their many years of experience in the field of business and management, they have proven to the world that three people with different social backgrounds can come together to form a stable business empire.  Prior to his joining Fortress Investment Group, Edens had owned and managed several high-end businesses. These must have given him a solid foundation on how to run and manage a bigger business. The three are in charge of different oversight roles, which enable then to guide and take forward Fortress Group. The CEO says that their focus for now is to ensure FIG has an even bigger number of investors. This is something they are sure to achieve as a private equity firm. “The future of Fortress Investment Group is bright. We are ready to take our chances,” Randal said in a recent press statement.

OSI Industries Becomes the Premier Global Food Provider thanks to Technological Advancement

Currently, OSI Group is a leading food provider in the world. It has about 20,000 employees inclusive of 65 facilities spread across 17 countries. Its development from the humble start of the 20th-century American immigrant history is pretty impressive. Today, the company has developed into an international food supplier.

The Beginning of OSI Group

The history of OSI Group dates to the era of the American immigrant experience when Otto Kolschowsky and his sons arrived in the United States of America as German immigrants. Settling in Chicago, he first opened a boutique firm that sold meat and other animal products to the community. The retail market needed his services. Therefore, he was joined by his sons in the service delivery process. With time, the company received more local purchase orders thereby attracting more clients to the database. That was a reflection of Otto’s ability to grow his firm by implementing excellent business strategies. He also realized that with more clients, the company needed additional professional help.

Development

When the First World War ended, Otto realized that there was the need to expand his business further. At that moment, OSI Industries expanded the firm into a wholesale supplier. The business covered Maywood, an additional suburb in Chicago. Within a decade, OSI Industries added an additional stable footing in the city. The American community began to notice a huge difference in the quality of food they bought. During the Second World War, OSI Industries had started adapting to the advanced technology that helped it with the development process.

The Transition

Over the next two decades after World War One, OSI Group underwent tremendous transitions that have majorly contributed to the brand it is as of today. One core transition is the Kroc’s franchising model that provided a consistent product for every restaurant. At the same time, OSI Industries was hired to cater to different clients including McDonald’s. Over time, McDonald’s presence in the country grew because of OSI  Industries’s contribution.

The Observation

OSI Group is now a force to reckon with in the industry of food supply. The company has vastly acquired different food suppliers including Baho Food, Tyson Food, and the Toledo Firm.
