A Mushroom Cloud of Blazing Flame Spells Catastrophe

Hash Oil Explosions in Sacramento County

Posted: 8/7/2014

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Homemade manufacturing of hash oil is widespread in Sacramento County. It causes explosions and fires in our neighborhoods and puts the safety of our residents at risk. Also known as wax, shatter, honey oil, hash, BHO, earwax, oil, concentrated cannabis, and dabs, hash oil is a highly concentrated form of THC, the psychoactive substance in marijuana. It is highly popular among both recreational and medical marijuana users.

The most popular production method is BHO, or Butane Hash Oil, which utilizes the highly volatile solvent, butane. The butane vapors evaporate during the process, but are heavier than air and often congregate in a low lying highly flammable cloud. A pilot light, static electricity, overhead light switch, or an automatic switch such as that found in a refrigerator or air conditioning unit is enough to ignite the cloud. The result is a sudden, powerful explosion and ensuing fire.

Job Demand Hiring Trends for Local Companies in the 3rd Quarter

Posted: 7/17/2014

Job Seekers Look to the Future
A robust market in California’s capital city expects to add as many new workers as it hires for replacements within existing workforces in the 3rd quarter of 2014.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - A robust market in California’s capital city expects to add as many new workers as it hires for replacements within existing workforces in the 3rd quarter of 2014. In a direct telephone survey of Sacramento’s top regional employers, fifty percent (50%) say hiring is motivated by expansion of existing workforces, and eleven percent (11%) also attributed seasonal demands for seeking workers in July, September and October.

Attrition, or replacements among the existing workforce motivated the other half expecting to see applicants. Pacific Staffing discovered just twenty-nine percent (29%) of Sacramento companies contacted directly between May 21st and June 11th are not hiring. While service and manufacturing companies were driving the majority of hiring anticipated in the third quarter, construction firms were almost evenly split, and just one retail firm surveyed was not looking for help. Also signaling continued robust employment in the area, not one company noted any plans for layoffs in the next quarter. Several firms also mention that retention of current workers was a growing concern and noted finding adequate numbers of qualified applicants as another challenge.

Statue of Liberty, US Flag, Flying Eagle, Silhouetted Against the Sky
“The flag of the United States is one of the most recognizable symbols on earth, more so than our monuments or presidents. From its creation, the flag has stood for freedom, liberty, and the prosperity of the United States. It was designed to accommodate the growth of a budding nation. Stars have been added, but it has retained the same significance. When you take your flag out to fly, hold it carefully, as it is a representation of our whole nation!” – Author Unknown

Saluting Our Flag

By Elise Spleiss
Posted: 7/3/2014

There was a time not so long ago when our flag, I believe, did not have as much meaning as it does today. It was just a part of our lives, and we took it for granted. I know I did.

Growing up in the 50s and 60s, I assumed it would always be around, always representing my country, and always respected by our citizens. But unfortunately this did not happen, and the flag began to be treated badly. Allowed to fly unmanaged, never folded or brought in at night, many became dirty and tattered. Disgruntled groups burned flags in protest. Yes, this is legal, but still sad. And our flag began appearing on inappropriate items.

SACRAMENTO REGION, CA (MPG) - Raley Field will host its second-annual Fourth of July celebration this Independence Day. This family friendly event will feature some of the region’s best local food, live music from the band Nunchuck Taylor, and a fireworks extravaganza to cap off the night.
