URALCHEM paid more than 232 Million Roubles for Social Projects in 2012

In 2012, the URALCHEM group increased funding for social and charitable projects to 232.3 million roubles, compared to more than 90 million roubles in 2011.

Moscow, Russia (April 29, 2013) — In 2012, the URALCHEM group increased funding for social and charitable projects to 232.3 million roubles, compared to more than 90 million roubles in 2011.

“We see the support of social and charitable programmes as one of the most important parts of corporate ethics. Record production levels and the financial results achieved by the company in 2012 have allowed us to increase funding for social programmes by almost 2.5 times compared with 2011,” the Chairman of the Board of Directors of URALCHEM, Dmitry Mazepin, commented.

The main focus of URALCHEM’s charitable activity is the support of children’s and youth sports. The Group’s enterprises in 2012 contributed more than 77.1 million roubles for this purpose. In addition, assistance is provided to child and youth programmes aimed at improving health, education and recreation. Significant donations are also made to the support of veterans and pensioners. Traditionally, URALCHEM assists in organizing various sports and cultural events in the cities where the company’s facilities are located.

The company’s largest plant in Kirovo-Chepetsk became the largest contributor, paying 97.9 million roubles in donations and sponsorships. A significant amount of these funds was provided for an unprecedented initiative to support 70 large low-income families from the Kirov Region; all these families received Lada Granta cars from URALCHEM.

The Azot Branch and Minudobrenia, both located in the Perm Region, allocated 45.8 million roubles for charitable projects. The Voskresensk Mineral Fertilizers plant in the Moscow Region spent 27.7 million roubles on sponsorship and charity. An addition to the generous contributions made by the separate enterprises, nearly 61 million roubles was paid directly by the URALCHEM company itself for good causes.

URALCHEM has renovated a lecture hall in the Chemistry Department of Moscow University

One of the lecture halls at the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University has been completely renovated and re-equipped using funding provided by URALCHEM.

Moscow, Russia (April 29, 2013) — One of the lecture halls at the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University has been completely renovated and re-equipped using funding provided by URALCHEM.

URALCHEM was responsible for both the financing and organization of all phases of the work, which ranged from architectural design and major repairs to the purchase of computer equipment and furniture. Repair work began in October 2012 and is now completed. Today, the renovated hall is a comfortable auditorium, seating 35 students and containing the latest laboratory equipment, computers, office and video conferencing facilities. The project costs were 5.2 million roubles.

URALCHEM and Moscow State University have been collaborating since 2011, since when the Department of Chemistry has set up special training programmes for the company’s employees. The training curriculum includes a 72-hour course for workers without any previous educational background in chemistry (“Chemistry for non-chemists”), and a 105-hour course for those who already hold college and university degrees in chemistry (“Chemical technology of inorganic substances”).

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM commented, “We attach great importance to our cooperation with the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University. It is the leading university in the country and whose graduates are sought after in many sectors of the economy. The quality of its education remains at a consistently high level. I am therefore pleased that our partnership is developing and I hope that our support will facilitate the maintenance of its high educational standards.”

URALCHEM’s director of Human Resources, Svetlana Chekalova said, “I would like to thank the administration and staff of the Chemistry Department of Moscow State University for its cooperation. The Department’s teachers were very flexible in developing an academic programme that meets the needs of URALCHEM. We are a young company focused on development, and we are pleased with the desire for self-improvement shown by our employees. Since the beginning of our cooperation with Moscow State University, 236 workers from URLACHEM’s enterprises have already completed the courses. Our cooperation with one of the best universities in the country is helping to raise the professional level of our own people and is at the same time increasing the overall prestige of the chemist’s profession.”

Igor Kotlobovsky, Vice Rector of Moscow State University said, “On behalf of Moscow University, I would like to thank URALCHEM for its support, which has allowed the Department of Chemistry to have state-of-the-art equipment installed in one of its halls. The room has been fully modernised, whilst preserving its historical facade and decorative ceiling mouldings. Classes can now even be held remotely, so, students such as URALCHEM’s employees will be able to be trained without leaving their workplace. The partnership between the university and URALCHEM shows how fruitful cooperation of science and business can be.”

Newark, DE (April 27, 2013) — There are special considerations and nuances involved in acquiring the proper permits for installation or repair of heating and air conditioning systems in the Newark, DE area. Because of this HVACNewarkDE.com has brought in “The Fixer Heating and Air” to service the HVAC needs of the residents of Newark.

While simple repairs or maintenance, furnace cleanings, or air conditioner services, for instance, don’t often require permits, it is still very important to hire the right heating and air company to service your HVAC needs. Proper licensing and insurance is a must when choosing the right company to keep your system up to code. HVACNewarkDE.com knows that and has brought the “right” company on board to make the choice easier; The Fixer Heating and Air.

Heating and air conditioning is not the only consideration when it comes to the air quality of your home.

Right Now Wellness Presents the Secret to a Fulfilled Life

Right Now Wellness works with clients to ensure they find what they are looking for in life, no matter what that is. Each person is an individual with unique needs and personal goals. Working together, we can define those goals and work to make them happen,” said Amanda Wright of Right Now Wellness.

Richmond, VA (April 27, 2013) — Holistic therapy, the art and science of healing which addresses the mind, body and spirit of the person, offers many benefits. Therapy of this type honors the lifestyle, observations, habits and beliefs of the person being treated, and treatment methods of less harm are preferred over riskier ones. “Respect for the individual remains the top priority throughout treatment to help healing on all levels,” Amanda Wright of Right Now Wellness declares.

Right Now Wellness (http://www.rightnowwellness.com) offers healing art massage therapy. This technique began more than 3,000 years ago with the ancient Egyptians, Persians and Hindus using it for a wide range of ailments. Conditions from arthritis to immune suppression benefit from massage. “Right Now Wellness offers deep tissue massage, acupressure, Thai massage, couples massage and more to benefit a wide range of conditions,” Ms. Wright explains. “The goal is to find the right massage modality for what the client is experiencing.”

Hypnosis focuses a person’s awareness to allow the conscious mind and the subconscious to believe the same message. The client feels calm and relaxed while under hypnosis which allows him or her to concentrate intensely while blocking out distractions. “Hypnosis has been successfully used to help patients break unwanted habits, reduce stress or cope better with medical conditions. The effects of this treatment last for an extended period of time and the client’s overall quality of life improves,” Ms. Wright goes on to say.

Couples struggle at times as every relationship goes through ups and downs. Traditional marriage counseling and s*x therapy revolve around verbal communication and work at home assignments. “With couples therapy, the goal transitions to exploring the relationship on a deeper level, one that includes real time interactions and non-verbal communication. “Partners learn how to feel fulfilled, on an emotional and a sexual level,” Ms. Wright states.

Many find themselves struggling to find fulfillment in life as they don’t have the life they truly envision. They continue doing the same things while expecting to see different results. “When this is the case, the person suffers in every area of life. Right Now Wellness works with clients to ensure they find what they are looking for in life, no matter what that is. Each person is an individual with unique needs and personal goals. Working together, we can define those goals and work to make them happen,” Ms. Wright proclaims.

About Right Now Wellness:

She is also a Reiki master, an ordained minister/spiritual counselor, mediation guide and has experience with relationship counseling.

Vegas Versus Victoria Falls: Which Vacation Is The Better Value?

Study compares costs of 10 global adventure trips with rates at 3-4 star hotels.

(For Immediate Release) April 26, 2013 — Today’s travelers seek memorable experiences when they vacation. A recent cost comparison study shows that global adventures can be more affordable than many three and four-star hotel stays. The research by AdventureLink.com suggests that cost-conscious consumers may wish to consider adventure travel as an alternative to traditional “been-there done-that” hotel stays.

Despite ongoing worries about the economy, the adventure travel industry is growing at 17 percent per year, according to the Adventure Travel Trade Association. The growth is being fueled by aging baby boomers seeking more value from their vacation travel experiences. “Many travelers don’t realize that some of the most sought-after adventure trips in the world cost less per day than staying in three and four-star hotels in major cities,” says Kelly Tompkins, Founder & CEO of AdventureLink Travel Inc.

In the study, AdventureLink.com compared 10 popular trips-such as African safaris, climbing Machu Picchu, and walking tours of Europe-to the cost of staying at three and four-star hotels across major destinations.

As with hotel stays, adventure tours typically do not include airfare. But adventure vacations do often include the cost of lodging, meals and in many cases a guide and local transportation.

“Everybody is value-conscious. So when I share with friends the adventures they can have for as little as $59 dollars a day, they often can’t believe it,” notes adventure travel pioneer Richard Bangs, an AdventureLink board member. Bangs points out that AdventureLink.com alone offers over 350 trips that cost less than $59 per day, roughly the cost of a night at a Motel 6.

“Most people are unaware that meaningful, affordable adventure travel options exist. That’s why we created AdventureLink.com,” Tompkins adds.

Moving Right Along Presents Moving Solutions for Business and Residential Moves Alike

“When one goes to change his or her residence, the right moving company helps to make the transition smooth in every way,” Jim Rueda of Moving Right Along (MovingRightAlong.com) states.

Ozone Park, NY (April 25, 2012) — According to the 2007 American Community Survey (ACS), the average American moves 11.7 times in his or her lifetime. The satisfaction of a move depends in great part on the moving company selected. “When one goes to change his or her residence, the right moving company helps to make the transition smooth in every way,” Jim Rueda of Moving Right Along (http://www.movingrightalong.com) states.

Whether one is moving to a new residence or new commercial location, he or she needs to feel comfortable with the moving company selected as the movers are handling his or her possessions. “Each possession in a home or office is chosen with care by the owner. Movers need to remember this at all times and treat each item as if it were their own. Many moving companies seem to forget this,” Mr. Rueda continues.

Items such as fine art and antiques or musical instruments such as a piano require special treatment. Special equipment may be needed to transport these items safely or special packing materials must be used. “Moving Right Along (http://www.movingrightalong.com/moving.html) understands this and equips each truck with a wide range of packing supplies and special equipment to properly care for these items,” Mr. Rueda goes on to say.

No two businesses are alike and therefore no two commercial moves are identical either. Some companies find themselves in need of records storage while others wish to have warehousing and distribution help. When a company chooses to relocate, Moving Right Along (http://www.movingrightalong.com/commercial.html) sends in a project manager to assess the situation and map out a plan for the move. “Having this service reduces the amount of downtime a company experiences during a move. With competition fierce in many industries, customers appreciate this as it ensures they don’t fall back in terms of their competition during a move,” Mr. Rueda explains.

Moving Right Along offers many other services consumers may find they need when switching residences or commercial locations. From junk removal and home cleaning services to fumigation and storage, Moving Right Along strives to meet the needs of customers in every area. “The fewer companies involved in a move, the easier the entire process becomes which is why many in New York look no further than Moving Right Along,” Mr. Rueda stresses.

About Moving Right Along:

Moving Right Along began as a part time venture in 1976 when it was known as Jim’s Moving Company. In 1981, Jim completed his Bachelor of Business Administration Degree in Marketing at Baruch University and he opted to change the name to Moving Right Along Service, Inc. Although the name changed, the company’s commitment to reliable and friendly service at a great low price remained. During the 1980s, the company expanded from a one truck operation to an eight truck organization. In 1988, Jim chose to purchase a Packaging Plus franchise which led to him branching out in many other areas. Services offered now include crating, interstate and international moving and containerized storage. Over the years, Jim has personally overseen all company operations and works to ensure a client’s transition to a new home or office is smooth thanks to quick and quality service.
