Jobs in Haiti?

ABC News reports:

The billions of dollars in aid that flowed into Haiti after its shattering earthquake were meant to build a new nation with thriving farms, apparel factories, modern hospitals and paved roads in the countryside.

Ambitious plans call for $500 million to build 50 new grade schools, $200 million to give Port-au-Prince its first wastewater treatment plant, and $224 million to create an industrial park for 65,000 garment industry workers — all aimed at laying the groundwork for a new Haiti.

But as the hemisphere's poorest country marks the second anniversary of the earthquake that killed some 300,000 people, only about half of the $4.6 billion in promised aid has been spent. Half a million people are still living in crowded camps. And only four of the 10 largest projects funded by international donors have broken ground. read more

We'll keep you posted.

Haitians Remember

As reported by the Miami Herald from yesterday's Memorial remembrance of the earthquake:

“If we are alive today, it’s not because we are better off. We still have work to do,” said Monsignor Alexandre Dumas of the Roman Catholic Church. “We owe to reconstruct otherwise, to build a new nation-state in unity and peace with stronger institutions, public buildings, places of worship and hospitals, schools and houses that are not graves.’’

Martelly echoed the sentiments saying that in 35 seconds “everything tumbled down, taking with it lots of human lives, leaving destroyed cities transformed into huge fields of rubble.”

At 4:56 p.m., three minutes after the quake struck two years ago, the crowd stood silent. Martelly and his wife, Sophia, then planted 10 trees, each representing the country’s 10 departments, to symbolize a rebirth.

Still in Limbo 1 year Later!

It is simply an outrage and explains so much about why this Island nation has been so poor for so long. The world has simply turned its back on the Haitian people again. 

After more than a year it is reported that less than 5 percent of the earthquake debris has been cleared in Haiti.

About 1 million people remain homeless, and neighborhood-sized camps look like permanent  shantytowns on the fields and plazas of the capital. The cholera epidemic that exploded outside the quake zone killed more than 3,600 people, and political instability continues.

Still, only 15 percent of needed temporary shelters have been built, with few permanent water and sanitation facilities.

Money, or lack of it, is still a major problem.  Americans alone donated more than $1.4 billion to private organizations to help survivors and rebuild, but just 38 percent has been spent to provide recovery and rebuilding aid, according to a Chronicle of Philanthropy survey of 60 major relief organizations, much to the surprise of many generous individuals and groups who give and raised money so unselfishly.

More than $5.3 billion was pledged at a March 31 donors conference for a period of 18 months. Only $824 million has been delivered, according to former U.S. President Clinton's U.N. Office of the Special Envoy to Haiti. About $3.2 billion in public funding still is owed.

Where are the leaders? Where are the grownups?

Special Report: How to Make Money in Bad Economy

Over the past year hundreds of people have asked my opinion about various business opportunities for making money from home so I have been looking closely at what is out there and trying to separate the good from the bad. There is a lot of bad out there but I have uncovered a few gems. One in particular caught my attention because it involves a gentleman I've known of for several years. His name is Bill Bartmann.

On their cover, Inc Magazine called Bill Bartmann "The Billionaire Nobody Knows." What is even less known than Bill himself is his story, which is arguably the most astounding "rags-to-riches" development in U.S. business history.

Bill Bartmann went from...

- Homeless (lived under a bridge viaduct)
- Gang member
- High-school dropout
- Alcoholic
- Paralyzed (and told he'd never walk again)
- Completely bankrupt with cars repossessed

...to become the 25th wealthiest American, with a net worth at the time that exceeded the likes of Donald Trump, Rupert Murdoch and Ross Perot.

Ironically, Bill made his first fortune during a recession. (His business method only works in a BAD ECONOMY, and today we have, what most economists agree, are the worst economic conditions since the Great Depression.)

Now he's at it again. You should check this out...

Can you work in Indonesia?

Earthquake, Volcano and a Tsunami.

The powerful earthquake that struck Indonesia late Monday near the Mentawai islands off the west coast of the island of Sumatra, had a 7.7 magnitude, it killed 23 people and triggered tsunami waves.

The 7.7-magnitude earthquake struck at a depth of 13 miles (20 kilometers) off Sumatra island, and was followed by a 5.0 magnitude aftershock in less than an hour. On top of the 23 confirmed deaths, more than 160 people are missing.

The quake caused huge waves of up to 3 meters high that hit the Mentawai islands, sending thousands of panicked residents running to higher ground.

Hundreds of homes were damaged by the quake and the waves. The government already sent aid including emergency shelters, food and other supplies, but stormy weather is making it difficult for the rescue teams to reach the affected areas.

Officials were rushing on Tuesday to evacuate thousands of residents surrounding Mount Merapi, the country's most volatile volcano, since pressure is building up according to scientists.

Indonesia is vulnerable to earthquakes and volcanic activity since it’s located on the Pacific Ring of Fire.

Rebuilding work will begin when the dust settles. We will keep you posted.

Are you willing to work in Indonesia? Yes. No.

Cholera outbreak spreads in Haiti

Haitian health officials are blaming the deaths of more than 100 people suffering from acute severe diarrhea and dehydration on the dread illness.
The cholera outbreak, with 253 deaths and more than 3,000 confirmed cases counted as of noon Monday, has so far been contained to the region around the epicenter — the central rural areas around the Artibonite River. read more
About 60 miles north of the capital, scores of children and adults are doubled over in a hospital courtyard, stretched out on benches or cots, racked by convulsive stomach disorder or limp with dehydration. They have buckets by their sides and intravenous solutions dripping into their arms. 
 
According to the New York Times,
"the Haitian government reported optimistically on Sunday that the epidemic might be stabilizing. Fatalities have declined — from 10.6 percent of known cases three days earlier to 8.2 percent now. But health experts cautioned that the danger remained high. Daniel Epstein, a spokesman for the Pan American Health Organization, said Monday that in 75 percent of cholera cases, the carriers are asymptomatic. That would mean that the number of people who have the microbe — and could spread it — may be closer to 12,000"
Although all are concerned about the crowded, unhygienic living conditions in the tent and tarp camps sheltering some 1.3 million displaced people, the slums are a potentially bigger problem as they do not have even the portable, cleanable latrines that many camps do.

Get the Lowest prices on Long Distance within the U.S. and for International Calling!

Making this situation so much more intolerable is the fact that, considering all of the money and resources standing by for building housing and clean infrastructure, this outbreak was avoidable.

As far as hiring for construction work in Haiti, it is doubtful that U.S. citizens will be allowed to enter the country unless they are already working there and, in any case, companies would be hesitant to bring workers into the country until the cholera is contained. We will keep you posted.

Job Alert: This industry is Hiring now!

Construction professionals are slipping into the Oil Industry

While the Construction industry continues to flounder the oil industry is riding $80 per barrel oil prices with huge growth in the United States and around the world. Independent Oil and Gas company Concho Resources CEO, Tim Leach said, "there is an abundance of opportunity in the United States." Concho Resources is hiring!

This month President Obama lifted the ban on exploratory drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and this week, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's office won a key victory against environmentalist groups suing to undo her office's approval of the Alberta Clipper pipeline. The pipeline, planned by Calgary's Enbridge, will pump, at capacity, 450,000 barrels of oil sands crude from Hardisty, Alta. to Superior, Wis. Read more

Ron Liepert, Alberta's Energy Minister, said "Thousands, maybe tens of thousands of jobs in the United States are dependent on a vibrant oil and gas industry, starting with the manufacturing base. We don't manufacture Caterpillars in Alberta, they're manufactured in Illinois and a whole bunch of other places in the U.S." Plus, he says, there are all those jobs that come with the upgrading and refining at the terminals where the pipelines end up."

Your construction skills could fit very well in the Oil and Gas Industry. The oil industry is a massive worldwide employer onshore and offshore. Wages are often very high.

There are many different types of jobs. The most common are:

* Entry Level Jobs
* Deck Crew
* Drill Crew
* Catering
* Control room personnel
* Construction
* Electrical Dept.
* Design
* Engineering
* Rig Management
* Mechanical Detp.
* Subsea

Knowing the big players within the oil industry is crucial. It is just as important to know the quality smaller operators. That is why this service will push your Resume/CV to the big and carefully selected operators all at the same time. This forwards your application to a diversity of employers.

The offshore oil industry is one of the most interesting and exciting places to work on the planet. Your career could take you around the globe and to its every corner.

Haiti's President says progress is being made!

The Miami Herald reported that Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive "insisted this week that progress is being made in his devastated homeland despite the trickle of international aid."

Bellerive spoke at the closing of the Americas Conference, an annual event sponsored by the Miami Herald and the World Bank. Bellerive said "millions are being spent on new highways, students are back in school, a new multimillion dollar teaching hospital is under construction, and thousands of new apartments are coming on line. We've only had 240 days, And what we have accomplished in those brief 240 days is, under the circumstances, remarkable when weighed against the challenges.'' The Herald also reported that "only 18 percent of the $5.3 billion pledged by international donors has been disbursed so far.

In a separate interview Pamela Cox, the World Bank's vice president for Latin America and the Caribbean, called post-earthquake Haiti "one of the worst situations that the world has faced" and said, " coordinating the efforts of so many disparate aid bodies was in itself challenging."
