Henrietta Glaus’s newly released “Melding the Pieces” recounts the life of Henri Glaus that is filled with utmost resolve and faith amid trials in life


News Image

“Melding the Pieces: The Life of Henri Glaus”: an uplifting testament of Henri Glaus’s thriving path to attaining purpose through hard work and faith despite the odds of life. “Melding the Pieces: The Life of Henri Glaus” is the creation of published author Henrietta Glaus, a wife, a mother, and a homemaker as well as an educator in the public school system with BS, MEd, and PhD degrees in education from Kent State University.

Glaus shares, “From growing up in a home without indoor plumbing or electricity, running barefoot on the farm, to traveling and bicycling throughout the world, Henri Glaus has experienced a life filled with joy, sorrow, high adventure, and the pleasure of accomplishments large and small. Expressed honestly with an element of humility, she recounts her story up to the cusp of her nonagenarian years.

“Understanding that life is a series of abstruse valleys and radiant peaks, Henri has embraced all the vicissitudes that a long life brings. Throughout everything, she has had the undying support of an extended family so large that, as her sister said, a bramble bush rather than a family tree would be required to record it.

“Throughout her life Henri was blessed with role models, beginning with her parents, her brother, and later four husbands—one, a professor, encouraged and supported her in attaining a PhD. This set Henri on a path that provided undreamed of opportunities in her chosen field of education.

“There is an adage that states a life well-lived is a life worth living. This is the story of that barefoot girl’s journey—the life of Henri Glaus.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Henrietta Glaus’s new book bears witness to an impassioned individual whose determination and selflessness brought her the success and fulfillment she so longingly desired.

Touchless Shopping at Denver Zoo


Touchless Shopping and Dining

Touchless Shopping and Dining

Due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, consumer expectations have shifted and evolved. A recent survey conducted by Shekel, shows that 87% of shoppers prefer to shop in stores with touchless shopping options and more than 70% of shoppers are using touchless shopping options when given the choice.

“With our cultural attraction partners beginning to reopen, we knew we had to make a comprehensive change to how we operate our food and retail locations to ensure we’re satisfying customers’ needs for safety and convenience. Our goal was to remove as many human touchpoints across the end-to-end customer shopping experience as possible. We know by introducing touchless shopping, we are offering our customers a more efficient and streamlined experience now and in the future. And, with SSA’s strategic focus on technology and innovation, this was a natural fit for our expertise.” Travis Kight, Chief Culinary Officer for SSA Group.    

SSA Group (SSA), historically known as KM Concessions, Inc. was able to utilize existing technology to quickly launch a touchless retail shopping and dining experience at one of its long-standing partner locations, Denver Zoo. Currently this is the only institution in SSA’s portfolio to offer this dual experience.    

The two organizations have leaned on one another for over 40 years to curate, activate and evolve the guest experience and today it’s no different. As a pillar in the community and after weeks without visitors, Denver Zoo’s reopening strategy focused on ensuring that all food and retail experiences were safe, smart, innovative and powered by technology.

Guests can access mobile ordering and shopping through the Denver Zoo mobile app or by scanning QR codes that are displayed throughout the Zoo. This service is available at all four restaurants as well as the gift shop. Ordering starts with the scan of a QR code to allow customers to quickly access online stores and menus. Items are selected and paid for through an online system and the customer receives a text message notification when their order is ready for pick up. Items are picked up in a designated, isolated location with limited human contact. This new shopping experience extends safety precautions to not only customers but also employees working at food and retail locations.

“As we planned our reopening, we had to reimagine every aspect of our operations, from how tickets are purchased to the on-site guest experience,” said Amber Christopher, Senior Vice President for Guest Experience and Campus Management for Denver Zoo. “We relied heavily on SSA and our other trusted partners to help us create a safe, healthy environment for our employees, guests and animals, and we’re grateful for their efforts through this process.”

“We are excited about the initial traction we are seeing with touchless shopping at Denver Zoo. In just one week, adoption of mobile ordering for food and beverage sales increased from 33% to 40%. At the end of the day, we know we can’t grow unless we evolve, and as a privately-owned company, we are nimble and quick in driving forward what comes next in guest experience.” Stephanie Turner, General Manager for SSA Group at Denver Zoo.    

Touchless shopping is just one way SSA has put safety at the forefront for our partners, guests and employees. SSA has created a dedicated group – the SSAfetyFirst Taskforce – responsible for ensuring the safety of guests and employees across all aspects of SSA’s business.

“As times are changing and we adapt to a new normal in workplaces, our team at AMGtime works endlessly to keep our clients safe and protected. Our newly unveiled device is the perfect solution in keeping individuals safe and comfortable when returning to work!”

Global populations are in the process of adapting to the new normal as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Administrators can configure settings to receive notifications via mobile app and/or email if an employee has an abnormal temperature reading or attempts to enter a facility without a facial mask.

Users of the device can also set the degree of temperature at which the terminal will validate an individual. Per CDC guidelines, individuals with a reading of 100.4 degrees or higher should be sent home and monitored. Ensuring individuals in your workplace are safe is key and monitoring fluctuations in temperature is important. Managers can pull daily customized reports of employees’ temperatures by group, department, or level.

During a recent interview, Tigran Tony Galstyan, president of AMGtime, made these comments: “As times are changing and we adapt to a new normal in workplaces, our team at AMGtime works endlessly to keep our clients safe and protected. Our newly unveiled device is the perfect solution in keeping individuals safe and comfortable when returning to work!”

With the terminal, employees can feel comfortable entering the workplace. Additionally, the device has multiple verification methods: face, palm, fingerprint, and password.

Alliance Creating, Strengthening Hemp Supply Chain


With industrial hemp now legal to grow and process in 46 states, and 33 states with legal medical marijuana programs, the domestic marketplace confronts one vexing challenge: a broken (or often non-existent) supply chain connecting fields to end-users.

A new, South Carolina-based start-up aims to fix that by fueling innovation and forging a chain where none may have existed before.

Hempgrid (https://www.linkedin.com/company/65312196/admin/) is the new entity founded by the Hemp Alliance Group, a consortium of executive-level leaders from diverse fields of manufacturing, technology, biotech, medicine, entrepreneurship, international supply chain, marketing and branding, contract negotiation and more.

By pooling their experience and resources, the group’s goal is to leverage hemp to strengthen the domestic manufacturing economy and reduce imports.

“Until the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp was illegal to grow or process in the U.S. for generations, though this sustainable plant has thousands of potential uses,” said Artie Perry, one of the alliance’s founding partners. “We’ve awakened that sleeping giant, and a giant wakes up hungry. Our aim is to help feed the industry by connecting companies who need one another but don’t know where to look, or how to evaluate and collaborate.”

With viable uses ranging from clean energy to building materials to automotive parts to paper and plastics and more, hemp is poised to disrupt nearly every industry, while serving as a sustainable resource with carbon-negative production.

And with a full project pipeline already in place, Hempgrid is focused on creating and/or strengthening the marketplace for hemp fiber and for health and wellness derivatives.

For example, one of Hempgrid’s early projects will pair a patented pulping technology – which can turn the waste from hemp/CBD production into fiber for food-safe containers – with a manufacturer ready to add new production lines.

Another involves the development of an e-learning platform for hemp focused education and certification to help foster a new generation of innovators. The group plans to partner with universities to accelerate hemp related curricula.

Future plans include developing hurricane-resistant building materials as a cost-effective, green solution for residential and commercial construction.

Hempgrid has already assembled a small network (or “grid”) of vetted suppliers in raw materials, clean transportation, product design, sales strategy and technological innovation. For updates, visit http://www.hempgrid.com.

This is still a difficult time for so many and our goal is to highlight a number of ways our agents and others can give to really make an impact.

Realty ONE Group International, one of the country’s fastest-growing real estate franchisors, is hosting a four-part health series on its live agent Town Halls, furthering its commitment to its real estate professionals and the communities in which they live and work.

The UNBrokerage began the Town Halls in the early days of the pandemic and just a few weeks ago hosted Kareem Abdul-Jabbar who spoke about social injustice. Last week’s Town Hall focused on Feeding America with representatives from the Colorado and San Diego food banks and was part of Realty ONE Group’s ‘Week of Giving’ where agents took part in porch-to-pantry efforts to support their local food banks.

“This is still a difficult time for so many and our goal is to highlight a number of ways our agents and others can give to really make an impact,” said Jewgieniew.

Realty ONE Group recently made its own donation of $11,111 during Mental Health Awareness month in May to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) and is featuring guests from NAMI on its July 6 Town Hall.

“It’s important to us to recognize the work that organizations like NAMI do to bring awareness to mental health every day and especially now for frontline workers and others who may be experiencing trauma.”

Smile Dental Center’s Hygienists Happy to Return to Work


Smile Dental Center

Smile Dental Center, where smiles are created in a safe and comforting environment!

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic resulted in the temporary closure of many businesses, including dental offices for non-emergency work. In conjunction with the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Governor Lamont released reopening guidelines for Connecticut dental practices in mid-May.

Due to safety concerns, the announcement sparked hesitancy among some hygienists, who protested their practices resuming non-essential dental services.

Located in Shelton, Connecticut, Smile Dental Center took all necessary steps to guarantee their office was fully prepared for staff to return to a safe and clean atmosphere.

Before doors reopened on June 8th, new sanitation equipment was installed and clearly outlined protocols were implemented to ensure the safety of both staff and patients. As a result, their hygienists were comfortable and happy to come back to a newly improved office.

Dr. Bruce Sofferman, DDS, Managing Partner at Smile Dental Center says that despite the current challenges, his dental practice remains committed to overall health and wellness.

“It has always been our top priority to provide quality dental care in the safest environment possible, with the highest standards of cleanliness in place. We take great pride in treating both patients and staff like members of our own family.”

In the waiting room, a state-of-the-art filtration system has been installed to purify and recycle the air every 12 minutes. In addition, each exam room is now equipped with a new Extraoral Aerosol Suction Unit, which removes even the smallest aerosol particles that can be generated while treating patients.

“I feel so safe and comfortable. More importantly, our patients continue to feel like family and are comforted by the installation of new aerosol machines in the exam rooms,” says Sue, Licensed Dental Hygienist at Smile Dental Center.

In addition to new sterilization equipment and top-notch infection control techniques, Smile Dental Center has introduced new safety protocols for patients and staff entering the office:

  • Pre-appointment / entry screening questions
  • Temperature checks for patients and staff
  • Face masks required for patients and staff
  • Limited number of persons in the office
  • Hand sanitizer & disinfecting wipes made available

“Smile Dental Center was 100% prepared to safely reopen with proper PPE, new sanitation guidelines and advanced technology to clean the air. My patients are excited to see how hard we’ve worked to create a clean and safe environment!” says Sarah, Licensed Dental Hygienist at Smile Dental Center.

Smile Dental Center has proudly served Connecticut families for over 35 years. Book an appointment today!
