first_imgThe ceremony was made even more meaningful because John Bartlett’s son and APH President Corey Bartlett presented the award to his father. Those who have had the opportunity to work with or for John Bartlett immediately appreciate his ­modesty, his principled leadership and his aura of calm competence. It is these characteristics that have led various organizations to seek him out for leadership positions. Over the years, Bartlett has served on the boards of AWDA and Aftermarket Auto Parts ­Alliance. He is currently chairman of the Alliance board. Bartlett also helps direct the efforts of ­WACOSA, an organization that provides training and work opportunities for people with disabilities throughout central Minnesota. A significant criteria for AWDA’s Pursuit of ­Excellence Award is the setting of high standards as an example for others to follow. John Bartlett’s ­standards are apparent in his advice to would-be ­entrepreneurs: “Be as concerned about the people you’ve chosen to work with you, as you are about your customers. If employees aren’t happy, customers aren’t happy.” According to son, Corey, that is a standard everyone should follow. AdvertisementClick Here to Read MoreAdvertisement John Bartlett is CEO of the 93-year-old, family and employee-owned warehouse distribution company, based in St. Cloud, MN. Originally founded as National Bushing and Parts Company, APH has grown to more than 110 locations. Bartlett’s career with the company began in high school when he “…worked at the parts store counter, swept floors – whatever part-time things high school kids do.” Bartlett joined the company full-time in 1971 after graduating from Bemidji State University with a degree in business and economics.center_img He was thrust into the company’s top leadership position in 1975 when his father Jack, the company president, died unexpectedly. “I was only semi-groomed for the job,” Bartlett recalled. “I suppose we both assumed we had another 10 years to work together. I had a lot to learn and it took time to acquire those competencies. I suppose the transition I didn’t have with my father has had an impact on the transition we have had with Corey.” LAS VEGAS – On Nov. 3, John Bartlett Jr., Automotive Parts Headquarters (APH), was honored with the Automotive Warehouse Distributors Association (AWDA)’s 2013 Pursuit of Excellence Award. ­Established in 1983, this award is given annually to an AWDA member in recognition of excellence in business performance and the setting of high standards as an example for others to follow. last_img read more

first_imgPress Release, August 01, 2014; Image: Hamburg Messe und Congress From 23-26 September 2014, WindEnergy Hamburg – the global trade show for the wind power sector – will take place for the first time. Across 65,000 square meters of exhibition floor space, more than 1,000 planners, manufacturers, suppliers, financers, operators, energy providers, and service providers will be presenting themselves from the onshore and offshore sectors along with R&D.Hamburg is not only an excellent venue for an international tradeshow, but also now a great location for the wind sector. WindEnergy Hamburg will show the strong international positioning of German suppliers and manufacturers – and how important a stable German market is towards that goal. With an export share of 67 percent and 10.67 billion euros of gross added value, the wind sector makes a major contribution to the German national economy.For this reason, a call to Berlin and Brussels will go out from Hamburg. Germany urgently needs a clear policy commitment in light of the increasing importance of renewables, growing global markets, and quickly developing opportunities. In Hamburg, the BWE will therefore reiterate its call for reliable industrial policy that takes account of these trends, creates fair markets in Europe, and ensures international market access.The German Wind Energy Association (Bundesverband WindEnergie) will be exhibiting in Hall A1, booth 308.last_img read more

first_imgFour out of five adults in England and Wales would be unable to pay for a lawyer were they accused of a crime, according to a survey of the likely impact of the government’s planned legal aid cuts.They would have to represent themselves or even remortgage their homes, it revealed.A Populus poll commissioned by the six bar circuits and Criminal Bar Association showed that, under the reforms, 80% of adults would be unable to afford the average £10,000 legal fees incurred for a three-day trial, and would be forced to represent themselves.Of the 2,036 adults who took part, 75% said that a person accused of a crime who cannot afford to pay their legal fees should be entitled to financial help.As the government, and justice secretary Chris Grayling (pictured), plan to introduce wide-ranging cuts to legal aid, including a £37,500 eligibility cap, 64% of respondents said there would be more miscarriages of justice and wrongful convictions as a result.More than half, 60%, said the cuts would hit those on middle incomes hardest.Asked if they would be comfortable being represented by G4S or Eddie Stobart, 16% and 20% respectively said they would be.Commenting, the leader of the North East Circuit, Alistair MacDonald QC, said the results show that many Britons will be faced with ‘financial ruin’ if they are put in a position were they have to defend themselves in a criminal court.He said the £37,500 household disposable income cap for legal aid eligibility will hit ‘hard-working families’ the hardest, many of whom could have to remortgage their homes.MacDonald said: ‘The losers will be law-abiding citizens on modest incomes who defend their homes against intruders, accidentally clip a cyclist in their cars, or who are simply among the many each year accused of crimes they haven’t committed.’If the proposals are implemented, those who qualify for legal aid will lose the ability to select their lawyer and will instead be allocated one by the state. MacDonald said this would render the ‘globally renowned’ British criminal justice system ‘unrecognisable’. Join our LinkedIn Legal Aid sub-grouplast_img read more

first_imgINTRO: Jean-Paul Masse examines legislative changes in France that empower the regions to fund regional railservices directly and take their own investment decisionsON JANUARY 1 2002 an act will come into force that will change the way regional transport is organised in France. Despite its significance, the act has remained nearly unnoticed by most French people. Even rail staff failed to react strongly when it was adopted by Parliament on November 21 2000. This was all the more surprising given that it may ultimately lead to other operators challenging SNCF’s monopoly on operations.Until now, French regional transport has been partly financed by payments from central government to SNCF. Under the revised arrangements, the state will no longer pay SNCF to organise regional transport. Instead the money will go directly to the regional authorities. With the exception of seven pilot regions where this change was implemented from mid-1997, SNCF has enjoyed a centrally allocated grant for regional operations and has been responsible for setting its own service levels.From next year the regions will take over these responsibilities, signing contracts with SNCF as the sole operator. They will use funds granted to them by central government to pay SNCF’s costs for providing local and regional services.Railways are not the only operations covered by the new act, and the regions will also have responsibility for organising bus services. Ile-de-France (greater Paris) and Corsica are excluded from the act.The transport section of the Loi Solidarité et Renouvellement Urbain (SRU) was drawn up by Senator Hubert Haenel. In 1997 the first six regions (Alsace, Centre, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Pays de la Loire, Provence-Alpes-Clast_img read more

first_img RELATED PHOTOS GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES Just days away from the start of track and field’s biggest competition of 2009, top officials from the Japan Association of Athletics Federations expressed pride in its athletes and confidence that they’ll have a successful showing in Germany. “I would like you all to perform understanding the great expectations people have,” JAAF president Yohei Kono told the national team during a news conference on Wednesday afternoon at a Tokyo hotel. IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5center_img “The (Japanese) citizens have high expectations for the world championships,” he added. “We’ve seen you have shown great outcomes, making big progress. We hope that you all show your growth in Berlin. The real-deal athletes can’t be competitive only in the nation. The real samurai can compete fairly in the world.“That said, I hope each athlete breaks his or her best mark first, and then national records, or we have some that even aim for the world records or tournament records.”The 12th IAAF World Athletics Championships begins on Aug. 15 in Berlin and concludes on Aug. 23.Japan is sending a delegation of 59 athletes (32 men, 27 women) to Germany, including hammer thrower Koji Murofushi, a 15-time national champion, 2004 Athens Games gold medalist and 2008 Beijing Games bronze medalist.Pole vaulter Daichi Sawano, a two-time Olympian, is seeking his first worlds medal, as is long-distance runner Kayoko Fukushi, who also competed at two Olympiads. She is the Asian record holder in the half-marathon.Other competitors include sprinters Naoki Tsukuhara and Shinji Takahira, who helped Japan win a 4×100-meter relay bronze in Beijing. It was Japan’s first track medal in the Olympics since the 1928 Amsterdam Games. The two other relay members, Shingo Suetsugu and Nobuharu Asahara, are not competing at worlds. Asahara has retired.At the 2007 IAAF World Championships in Osaka, Reiko Tosa won Japan’s lone medal, picking up a bronze in the women’s marathon on the final day of competition. Tosa’s performance set a benchmark for Japan’s athletes in 2009.“The level of the world is improving day in and day out, but we would like the Japanese athletes to compete well in the world championships in Berlin,” said Tsunekazu Takeda, the JOC president. “We would also like you to compete and break your own personal records, looking ahead to the London Games in three years.”Susumu Takano, The team manager, said Team Japan has set a target of earning at least one medal at worlds. He said six top eight-finishes represent the other big goal.Takano described these targets as realistic targets.“We believe we have made enough preparations since Beijing as we held monthly training camps,” Takano noted. “Fortunately, most of the athletes who participated in the training camps made the national team.”Entering the worlds, there are a number of unknowns for the Japan national team, notably the fact that 29 of the 59 participants are first-timers.The team features 13 athletes who are 23 or younger, including heralded sprinter Chisato Fukushima (100, 200 and 4×100 relay), Yurika Nakamura (5,000 and 10,000) and Yuriko Kobayashi (5,000). All three competed at the 2008 Beijing Games.Seventeen-year-old Miho Shingu, the youngest member of Team Japan, makes her world championships debut this year. The Higashi Osaka College Keiai High School student is slated to compete in the 4×400 relay.Japan’s youthful identity is part of the team’s blueprint for the future, according to Takano.“We ‘sowed some seeds’ by having some young prospects compete in Osaka (the 2009 Osaka Grand Prix in May) to give many of them an opportunity, and it has started sprouting up,” said Takano.He added: “We are going to give the best support we can. This is the important first step toward London.”Sawano was selected as Japan’s male captain, while hurdler/4×400-relay member Satomi Kubokura earned the honor on the women’s side.Sawano is clearly motivated to help Japan have a successful performance at worlds, but refuses to be intimidated by the feelings of pressure to repeat what the aforementioned 4×100-relay unit accomplished in China.“In Berlin, we would like to show the best performance we can,” he said. “We cannot be overshadowed by the feat of the relay team” Leaving for Berlin: Track and field athletes Daichi Sawano (right) and Satomi Kubokura vow their determination for the upcoming world championships at Berlin during a press conference in Tokyo on Wednesday. | KYODO PHOTOlast_img read more
