Compostable Packaging
Manufacturer, Vegware

Celebrates One Full Year in
Huntington Beach, CA
ompostable packaging manufacturer Vegware (
celebrates its first birthday since launching a year ago in Huntington
Unlike conventional disposable serviceware, Vegware’s entire range is com-
postable, using only renewable, lower carbon or recycled materials. For businesses
seeking plastic-free packaging alternatives, Vegware has arrived from Scotland
just at the right time. Vegware’s founder and CEO, Joe Frankel explains why:
“You can’t recycle food with plastic in it, and you can’t recycle plastic with food
on it. Moving to compostable catering disposables means that food and packaging
waste can be composted together. We be-
lieve compostables are the only practical
recycling solution for foodservice. And
we’re proud to offer Environmental sup-
port to help clients implement zero waste
The plastic tide is turning with busi-
nesses and, in some cases, entire states
seeking plastic-free catering alternatives.
Many universities, coffee shops, office
buildings and restaurant chains have al-
ready made the switch to Vegware.
Vegware’s Environmental support sep-
arates the company from other eco dis-
posables suppliers. Their Environmental
team takes foodservice providers on a
journey to zero waste, providing support
every step of the way. Their unprece-
dented engagement with the waste in-
dustry allows Vegware to work with
waste hauliers to ensure compostable
packaging and food waste is collected
for composting.
Abigail Macleod, Vegware Packaging Inc’s General Manager, says:
“The US and Scotland have a long history of strong trade links, so it only seemed
natural our next global venture would be to open an office here. So far, we’ve been
humbled by the support and interest in our compostable packaging solution. Hunt-
ington Beach, CA, gives us a great base to provide the West Coast and wider areas
of America with our compostable packaging solutions. We’ve been delighted with
our first year of trading in the US and we are so proud to be at the forefront of the
composting revolution.”
Established in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 2006, Vegware has operational bases in
Sydney and Hong Kong with wide distribution throughout Europe, the Middle East
and the Caribbean. Get in touch! | (844) 610-0915

HB Best Run City

• HB ranks as the ONLY California City in the Top 50 out of 150 Cities

• City rated #1 in “Quality of City Services”

he City of Huntington Beach moved up a notch from last year in Wal-
letHub’s annual ranking of 150 “Best-Run Cities in America” – rank-
ing HB 14th on the list. The next closest California city on the list was
Santa Ana, coming in at #53, then San Diego at #62.
To determine the effectiveness of local leadership, WalletHub’s analysts
compared 150 of the largest U.S. cities based on their operating efficiency.
For each city, the analysts constructed a “Quality of City Services” score
— comprising 33 key performance indicators grouped into six service cat-
egories — that was then measured against the city’s total percapita budget.
Huntington Beach scored #1 in “Quality of City Services,” and ranked #1
in “Education.”
“This national acknowledgement for Huntington Beach being named a
‘Best-Run City’ is a testament to our hard working city leaders and staff
that put our taxpayers first. Running a large city like HB is complex, but
having this kind of validation, and HB being the only California city in
the top 50, makes us proud to know we are operating efficiently,” said City
Manager Fred A. Wilson.
Mayor Mike Posey exclaimed, “This is great news for Huntington Beach.
Not only have we made the list two years in a row, but we also improved
our ranking. We are lucky to live in such a thriving, diverse community
where the amenities and services we are offer are unparalleled.”

1930 Bentley

Digital Copy: • visit•
In 1930, British motor company Rover advertised that it beat the world-famous 'Train
ER Bleu', a luxury express train, designed to take British aristocrats and celebrities from Calais
WE D to the French Riviera.
Following the advertisement, Captain Joel Woolf Babe Barnato, a British playboy mil-
lionaire and chairman of Bentley, wagered £100 that his Bentley Speed Six could beat the
Pizza, Pasta OR D K UP train as well. (Back in 1930, the average annual income in the UK was £165).
Originally, the Bentley Speed Six was introduced in 1928 as a more sporting version of

Despite being off to a bad start, Barnato managed to beat the train by a few minutes, but
when the French authorities got wind of his exploits, he was fined for illegally racing and
paid a hefty fine. The story became infamous and the Speed Six became a legendary vehicle.
The engine was restored to perfect running order, using original and custom-parts.

The Blue Train version produced 200 hp, reached a top

speed of 200km/h (125mph), and won the 24 Hours of Le
Mans race in 1929 and 1930. In both races, the driver was
none other than Barnato – the Chairman of Bentley Motors.

These Common Surgeries Have the Highest Death Rates

No one wants to consider complications when they undergo surgery. Medical
research shows even the most statistically safe surgeries come with risks. Unfor-

tunately, these common surgeries and procedures have high mortality
rates. We’ll also take a quick look at why you should consider surgery.

1. Septal myotomy
Mortality rate: 0.4%
Complications: irregular heart rhythms, blood clots leading to stroke,
aortic valve problems, and removal of too much heart muscle
When done successfully, this surgery reduces the thickening of the heart
muscles. The procedure is quite complicated, and you’ll have to spend
time in the ICU if you survive. Fortunately, this surgery has a low mor-
tality rate of only 0.4% in the first 30 days afterward.

2. Esophagectomy
Mortality rate: 6-7%
Complications: blood loss, pneumonia, and injury to the spleen or the
tracheaAn open esophagectomy, or esophageal resection, is a type of sur-
gery in which a part of the esophagus or the entire esophagus is removed.
The procedure carries a lot of risk due to the reconstruction of the area
between the stomach and the healthy part of the esophagus.

3. Removal of part of the large intestine Serious operations can affect your emotions.
Mortality rate: 16.9% Shironosov/iStock/Getty Image
Complications: heart attack, blood clots, and incisional hernia
The most burdensome emergency surgery involves removing part of the large
intestine. The most common reason for this procedure is a symptom called volvu-
lus, meaning the large intestine twists itself into a knot and creates a blockage. 25

“One reason we wanted to update our previous paper is that this tax change up is the only direction in which most California legislators want to take
in 2012 is the largest state tax change that we have seen
in the U.S. for the last three decades,” Varner said.
Prop. 30 raised the state’s top income tax rate by
more than 29%, increasing it three percentage points
from 10.3% to 13.3%, which is now the highest state
income tax rate in the nation. Prop. 30 also hiked the
tax rate on income between $300,000 and $500,000 by
two percentage points (a 21.5% rate increase), and
raised the rate on income between $500,000 and
$1,000,000 by three percentage points (a more than
32% rate hike).
In 2016, California voters extended the Prop. 30 in-
come tax increases, which were originally scheduled
to expire in 2019, until 2030. There will be an effort
to extend those income tax hikes yet again prior to their
expiration in 2030; book it now.
Varner’s new research examined taxpayers who were
and were not hit by the Prop. 30 rate hikes. He found
that in the two years before the Prop. 30 tax hike was
imposed (2011 and 2012), net in-migration for both
groups “was positive and roughly constant.” Yet fol-
lowing 2012 and the passage of Prop. 30, net in-mi-

effective tax increase of 0.5 percent or more. The re-
