James Barthel, President and CEO of MT2, Selected as a Semi-Finalist for the Denver Better Business Bureau 2016 Torch Award and Nominated for the 2016 Bill Daniels Ethical Leader of the Year Award

MT2 announced news regarding their President and CEO being honored with two significant business nominations. James Barthel was notified in July that he was selected as a Semi-Finalist for the Denver Better Business Bureau 2016 Torch Awards and also Nominated for the 2016 Bill Daniels Ethical Leader of the Year Award.


Encouraging and supporting ethical business practices is a key purpose of the Better Business Bureau (BBB).  The Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics is the most prestigious award the BBB can present to a business or nonprofit.  Being a recipient indicates that the business not only believes in the high standards promoted by the BBB, but also consistently acts on them and continuously integrates them into daily practices.


Commenting on the news of being selected as a semi-finalist for the Denver Better Business Bureau 2016 Torch Award, Barthel stated, “I am humbled and honored. MT2 is run on a belief and value-system that service is a foundational reason for a business to exist. I focus on a balanced interest for all stakeholders including customers, employees, owners, business partners and suppliers. A balanced win-win approach for all stakeholders produces a culture of service focused on others along with the uncompromising integrity of being part of an enterprise with a higher purpose.”



The Bill Daniels Ethical Leader of the Year Award honors a leader of the business community who embodies the strong belief in real-world practical application of ethical principles as a framework for personal and organizational decision-making and leadership. Nominees will be evaluated based on principles espoused by Bill Daniels during his business career including: Integrity, Trust, Accountability, Transparency, Fairness, Respect, Rule of Law, and Viability.


On being nominated for the 2016 Bill Daniels Ethical Leader of the Year Award, Barthel stated, “our vision and mission here at MT2 is to be the premier specialty environmental services company known for our high level of service and integrity with a higher purpose and to deliver a competitive service experience to our clients, characterized by excellence in performance, safety, and environmental protection; producing a sustainable rate of return to shareholders; and established on a foundation of principles and values commensurate with our calling.”

He continued, “our core business competency is compliance. A single incident of non-compliance can result in a significant risk to our customers and to our viability to long-term sustainability. For these reasons and as part of our excellence in service commitment, MT2 has established a zero infractions goal as a primary objective. We work strongly to help establish industrywide standards, to help our clients understand the relevance of regulations to their operations and to promote industry wide compliance through trade organization and training opportunities.”

Government of Nigeria reports 2 wild polio cases, first since July 2014

After more than two years without wild poliovirus in Nigeria, the Government reported today that 2 children have been paralyzed by the disease in the northern Borno state.

As an immediate priority, the Government of Nigeria is collaborating with WHO and other partners of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative to respond urgently and prevent more children from being paralyzed. These steps include conducting large-scale immunization campaigns and strengthening surveillance systems that help catch the virus early. These activities are also being strengthened in neighboring countries.

Simple Microwave Meals In 10 Minutes Or Less

The fact is that cooking is an absolutely essential life skill. If you can cook for yourself, you can make your food tastier and healthier, not to mention more economical.

When cooking any recipe, use the best ingredients that you can afford. Splurge a little on imported cheeses or better quality meats when you can, so that you can experience a restaurant, quality-tasting meal at home. To enhance the experience even further, try to creatively plate up the meal with a little thought, for something different every now and then.

When you shelve an herb or a spice, make sure it’s dark and cool. If they get exposed to any light, humidity or heat, their flavor will begin to weaken. As a general rule, keep your ground spices no more than one year. Whole spices are hardier, and will retain their robust flavoring for several years. Store your herbs and spices correctly, so that they will stay fresh and keep their full flavor!

To prevent the crust of your filled pies from getting soggy, coat the dough with egg white first and then bake it for about five minutes to allow it to set. You should then fill and bake as you normally would. This will stop your crust from absorbing too much of the filling during baking and becoming soft and wet.

If you feel that a piece of food you are about to cook does not look right or may be rotten, always error on the side of caution and throw it away. It is better to lose a few dollars than to cost yourself the next couple of weeks from food poisoning.

An electric mixer is a blessing when you have to make your dough, but even this relatively easy task can turn into a nightmare when the dough sticks to the dough hook. To avoid the sticky mess, spray the hook with vegetable cooking spray and your dough will never stick to your mixer again.

Layered bar cookies, fudge and chewy brownies often fall apart or get torn up from trying to evenly cut them into squares. A good rotary pizza cutter can be used to accomplish this task without worrying about a sharp knife slipping and causing an injury. Make some light guidelines in your food with the tip of a knife first and follow up with the pizza cutter for perfectly cut bars, brownies and fudge every time.

Cooked turkey freezes beautifully, as does stuffing. When making a big holiday meal, be sure and make plenty so you not only have enough for turkey sandwiches, but to enjoy another turkey dinner in a month or two, without all of the work. Use a spare 9″ X 13″ pan that you line and divide with aluminum foil into two or three compartments. Cut some turkey for one compartment, add some stuffing in another and if you would like, leftover mashed potatoes can be put in the third compartment. Drizzle some gravy over everything you desire, cover with aluminum foil and freeze. When ready to enjoy turkey again, or perhaps when pressed for time and out of ideas for dinner, grab the pan from the freezer and place in the oven at 350 degrees. Remove the foil from the top of the pan after 45 minutes, bake uncovered for another 15 to 20 minutes and enjoy!

If you follow these tips, learning how to cook homemade foods is simple and easy. As your cooking improves, you will discover how beneficial cooking can be, for your waistline and your wallet. Eating good home cooking will create a healthy and happy style of living for yourself and those around you. Use these great tips to make delicious, healthy and affordable meals that the whole family will love!
