Sales Blast - Sunday, 7/6/14

Happy 4th of July! Hope everyone had a great holiday. Coincidentally I am listing to David McCulloughs 1776 (on Audible). It is an old book but I am a history buff and thought it would be a good read (listen). The timing is perfect for the Independence Day weekend. If you have not read it, it is a classic, check it out.

Hard to believe but we are prepping for the ISSA show and had to deliver the ad for the ISSA Today pre-show issue that will be published in August. We are in the process of an re-brading of Airx which will be a feature in our booth. See below the new ad that focusses on the 3 dimensional part of Airx as well as where we are going with the re-branding. Airx is celebrating its 30 year of odor & pathogen control!

Speaking of proper pathogen control and proper procedures:

Flawed Saudi Response Is Cited in Outbreak of the Middle East Virus MERS

JIDDA, Saudi Arabia — As the virus tore through the city’s largest hospital, jumping from bed to bed and afflicting scores of people, terror filled the wards.

Some doctors and nurses refused to treat the sick or stopped coming to work altogether. Patients panicked. One surgeon recalled a man with a broken limb trying to flee the emergency room so he would not catch it, too.

“Everyone was afraid,” the surgeon, Dr. Mohammed Ahmed, said of the spike in cases this spring.

Saudi officials know how urgently they need to beat the disease, and they say they now have the latest outbreak under control. But the fact that the number of cases and deaths have more than tripled since the end of 2013 has led health experts to cite grave flaws in the way this ultraconservative and staunchly private monarchy has handled the crisis.

The greatest number of new cases was at the King Fahd Hospital in Jidda. Doctors said a mix of bad management, crowding and lax hygiene helped spread the virus there. That sounds familiar.

Thats all for now since it is a holiday weekend.

Have a great day and a even better sales week!
