"PETOSKEY, MI -- Northern Michigan's industrial past is returning to haunt the Petoskey waterfront, where environmental and public health officials are going door-to-door to test for poison vapors inside residences built on a Superfund site. The Environmental Protection Agency is investigating vapor intrusion around the former Petoskey Manufacturing Company site at 200 W. Lake Street, which was redeveloped into a condominium complex next to Bayfront Park. Trichloroethylene, (TCE), a cancer-causing industrial solvent still present in high concentration in the groundwater and soil under the site, was found at levels high enough in the indoor at the Water Street Condominiums in March and April for health officials to suggest that some residents temporarily relocate." Garret Ellison reports for the Grand Rapids Press May 14, 2017.

Concerned about the threat and the hassle The survey makes clear that complexity, inconvenience and perceived odds of becoming an identity fraud victim have discouraged consumers from making identity protection best practices part of their daily lives. While 84 percent of respondents acknowledge being concerned about the security of personal information online, nearly two-thirds (64 percent) agree it's "too much of a hassle to constantly worry about securing personal information online." The majority say staying on top of financial transactions is a challenge (53 percent), and nearly half (48 percent) don't even check their credit reports regularly for errors or suspicious activity. Significant misconceptions about identity theft and fraud More concerning might be the misconceptions that exist regarding identity theft and fraud. A majority (56 percent) believe the risk of identity theft goes away over time, and more than half (52 percent) are convinced it's not very likely they will become a victim of identity theft. Many think banks and credit card companies monitor their accounts, so they don't have to worry about identity theft (53 percent), and nearly 1 in 10 respondents believe they aren't at risk because "my credit is bad/I don't have enough money." "Consumers seem to be tuning out rather than tuning in," said Michael Bruemmer, vice president of identity protection at Experian. "Nothing replaces an individual's active role in identity protection, but there are products — like Experian's new IdentityWorks — that help consumers increase their awareness and provide tools enabling quick response to potential fraud. It becomes less of a burden when consumers set up alerts for their credit cards and bank accounts, as well as alerts to flag credit report changes." In 2016, over 15 million Americans were victims of identity theft, up 16 percent from the previous year.2 "Understanding the risks, being aware of the dark web, and researching what can help monitor and mitigate fraud aren't optional these days. Unfortunately, the survey suggests consumers don't consider these necessities a priority, which makes life easier for fraudsters," added Bruemmer. For information regarding identity protection and dealing with fraud, as well as more details on this survey, visit the Experian Credit Education blog. Consider enrolling in a dark web and credit monitoring product such as Experian IdentityWorks, which can help better track and manage your credit with mobile alerts, lock your Experian credit file with Experian CreditLock, and help mitigate the damage from fraud with access to fraud resolution specialists and up to $1 million in identity theft insurance.

A client was recommended to NDP through an Insolvency Practitioner after a previous solicitor didn't believe his case was winnable. It was successful in having his case dropped by the Secretary of State and was able to get his legal costs paid.Birmingham, United Kingdom - April 24, 2017 /PressCable/ — Birmingham, England – April 2017 – A company director threatened with a six-year disqualification recommends Neil Davies & Partners Solicitors (NDP) after successful case. A client was recommended to NDP through an Insolvency Practitioner after a previous solicitor didn’t believe his case was winnable. It was successful in having his case dropped by the Secretary of State and was able to get his legal costs paid. The client has now provided a positive testimonial for the legal firm and would recommend it to others facing similar situations. The case against him stated that he entered into funding arrangements knowingly which resulted in the company going into insolvency and eventually being wound up. The Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills brought the case, which could have resulted in a six-year disqualification order. Once NDP was instructed by the client, it began to develop a defence case and strategies and was confident that it could use its expertise and skills to secure a positive result. The solicitors broke down the evidence against him and rebutted the claims of the Secretary of State, which in the end resulted in the case being dropped and the client’s legal costs were paid. This was a much better outcome than the client had initially hoped for, and he believed that he would need to offer a director disqualification undertaking, voluntarily, in order to secure a reduced period. Directors who are threatened with disqualification can benefit from the experience of NDP, which provides an upfront and honest approach to all its cases. Its recent client sees this as the reason why he won his case, and he can now concentrate on his business and family once again. About Neil Davies & Partners NDP is a law firm specialising in director disqualification, restructuring, insolvency and insolvency litigation, as well as construction disputes, commercial litigation and regulatory disputes. The Birmingham-based company was founded in 2007, and the experienced team work for clients across the UK and on an international basis.

VOORHEES, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Water Works Company, Inc. (NYSE: AWK), the largest publicly traded U.S. water and wastewater utility company, held a groundbreaking ceremony today for the company’s new headquarters at One Water Street on The Camden Waterfront. When completed in late 2018, the five-story, 220,000 square foot facility will house more than 600 employees, consolidating four different locations in southern New Jersey. American Water President and CEO Susan Story was joined by U.S. Rep. Donald Norcross; Camden Mayor Dana Redd; Bob Martin, commissioner, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection; Timothy Lizura, president and COO of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority; William Hankowsky, president and CEO of Liberty Property Trust and more than 150 guests to celebrate the start of construction, which is expected to last about 18 months. “American Water and our employees are excited about our new home on the Camden waterfront,” said Susan Story, president and CEO of American Water. “We know this will be a place where we can become an even stronger presence in this great city; where we can attract and develop talent for today and the future; and where we can develop solutions to challenges for clean, safe, reliable and affordable water and water services for people across the country.” American Water’s headquarters will rise between the Ben Franklin Bridge and Adventure Aquarium. The environmentally friendly building will have panoramic views of the Philadelphia skyline, easy access to a waterfront park along the Delaware River, plentiful natural lighting, a rooftop terrace, and cutting-edge technology. Robert A.M. Stern Architects is the architect with Gensler designing the interior of the building. “The construction of One Water Street marks another great chapter in our city’s history,” said Mayor Redd. “I commend both Liberty Property Trust along with American Water for committing to Camden.” “This project also signifies a private investment of $1 billion in our city,” added Mayor Redd. “That commitment extends to hiring Camden residents and sourcing services and materials from Camden based companies. It will transform our waterfront and benefit our residents for many years to come.” Congressman Norcross added: “American Water's new headquarters will be more than just a building. It will stand as a symbol of Camden's renewal. Today we’re a step closer to realizing the vision of a revitalized Camden City with new jobs and opportunities for our entire community.” American Water is joining a growing group of prominent corporations locating their headquarters in Camden, including most recently the Philadelphia 76ers and Holtec International. These corporations are building upon the foundation of stability and growth built by anchor institutions, such as Cooper Hospital, Rowan University and Rutgers University-Camden. The Camden Waterfront is a new, mixed-use neighborhood that will attract corporations, employment and significant inward investment. Liberty Property Trust is working to put in place additional pieces of The Camden Waterfront master plan designed by Robert A.M Stern Architects including a proposed 180-room Hilton Garden Inn to be developed by Ensemble Real Estate Solutions and 188 residential units for which an agreement is pending with The Michaels Organization. The office component of the development will consist of build-to-suit projects for corporations seeking to grow their businesses in this environment. In addition, over $8 million is planned to be invested in the reconstruction and enhancement of the existing waterfront park creating more than 2.5 additional acres offering diverse opportunities for recreation, exploration, respite, and engagement with nature. As part of the overall project, Liberty has entered into a Community Investment Agreement with Camden in which it has committed to staffing 10 to 20 percent of the construction workforce with qualified Camden residents, maximizing sourcing from Camden-based businesses and providing opportunities for Camden youth through paid internships, participation in the creation of construction fencing murals and supporting youth sports. Additionally, 20 percent of the residential units will be allocated to affordable housing. “The significance of this moment is twofold,” said Liberty Property Trust Chairman, President, and CEO William Hankowsky. “Today, we not only celebrate breaking ground on American Water’s new corporate headquarters, but also recognize this is the very first step in establishing The Camden Waterfront as a thriving and dynamic community.” With a history dating back to 1886, American Water is the largest and most geographically diverse U.S. publicly traded water and wastewater utility company. The company employs more than 6,700 dedicated professionals who provide regulated and market-based drinking water, wastewater and other related services to an estimated 15 million people in 47 states and Ontario, Canada.
