Staff in Focus: A campus in good keeping

Staff in Focus: A campus in good keeping

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Dec. 15, 2017 Varsity Lake and BridgeThe role of David Danielson, assistant vice chancellor for facilities operations and services, involves leading roughly 400 staff members who are responsible for ensuring that general-fund campus buildings and grounds are operating smoothly, that the lights come on, the heaters work, flower beds are maintained, buildings are clean, trees are healthy and faucets flow smoothly—all of which is done with an eye on sustainability.center_img Assistant Vice Chancellor for Facilities Operations and Services David DanielsonRetiring this month after five-plus years at CU Boulder and a 38-year career overall in the higher-education facilities management realm, working at places like Duke and Emory, Danielson’s last day in the office will be Dec. 20.He recently sat down with CU Boulder Today to discuss his time on campus and the changes he’s seen in the facilities management world in nearly four decades of service.What are you most proud of during your time at CU Boulder?There are several things I’m happy we accomplished. Helping to achieve a successful Grounds and Recycling Operations Center project and creating and hiring a sustainability program manager and campus energy manager have been key to our success on several fronts, particularly in our sustainability efforts.We also created additional shifts for our maintenance and trades group, which has helped improve our ability to serve the campus and conduct many operations while building users aren’t present. And, of course, I’ve been able to work with some very wonderful people.   What has been your favorite part of your job?  I love walking around in the buildings and seeing the Facilities Management employees working and doing good things. I am very proud of the work ethic of all of the staff.How has Facilities Management evolved during your time at CU Boulder and your career, and what new technologies are on the horizon that will have a positive impact?Facilities Management is now using technology to make data-driven decisions. Building analytics and artificial intelligence will be here before you know it. Mobile dispatching is allowing Facilities Management to get the work to the employee much quicker. Material acquisition and distribution is also becoming more effective and efficient.  Do you have a favorite building/area on campus or little-known facilities fact?I really enjoy the Varsity Lake area. We were able to get funding to update both the east and west ends of this beautiful campus site. The view from the McKenna Languages side is outstanding!  Which initiatives most excite you regarding the future of CU Boulder?I think the academic and strategic facilities visioning projects are going to be very important for the campus. Defining who we are and determining how we are going to get there will be significant. These efforts will create the future initiatives for how we invest in our faculty, staff, students and facilities.    What’s next for you?My wife and I are moving to Indianapolis to be near our kids and grandkids. I love to do building projects, and I have about a year’s worth of projects scheduled. We also like to travel. Working at six different universities in five different states, we have many friends in different parts of the country we want to visit.Working at CU Boulder has been the highlight of my career. Never have I had such a great team along with the financial resources to do what needed to be done. Plus, the campus aesthetics are pretty cool! I could not have asked for a better place to spend the final years of my work life. I feel truly blessed to have had this opportunity.Categories:Staff in FocusSustainabilityCampus Communitylast_img read more

Report: Bristol City 1-1 AFC Bournemouth (pre-season)

Report: Bristol City 1-1 AFC Bournemouth (pre-season)

first_imgOnce again, Lee Johnson’s side proved themselves more than a match for a top-tier side, although AFC Bournemouth did take a first-half lead through Joshua King.However, City rallied and Weimann pounced at the back post to earn City a draw in their final pre-season outing.The home side pressed the Cherries and could have scored a second-half winner but for better luck on the night.Keeper Max O’Leary, who recently put pen to paper on a new City contract, started between the sticks while Niclas Eliasson earned another start following his impressive pre-season and Marlon Pack, himself fresh from signing a new deal, started in midfield against an Eddie Howe side with vast Premier League experience.City’s young shot-stopper was the first to be called into action when he showed amazingly quick reactions to deny Jermain Defoe from close range. Winger Jordon Ibe swept the ball across goal where striker Defoe, around four yards out, looked destined to score with a first-time effort but for the alert O’Leary who pushed the ball away.City soon settled and Joe Bryan saw the home side’s first effort on goal but he dragged his shot wide. Sweden winger Eliasson was next to have a go but he couldn’t keep the ball under Asmir Begovic’s goal.The away side took the lead though due to Joshua King’s strike, which proved too powerful for O’Leary. The Bournemouth forward worked himself into some space before firing past the diving City keeper, who looked to have got a hand to the ball but could do little to keep it out of the net.last_img read more

Weekend temperatures will be well above normal in central, eastern US

Weekend temperatures will be well above normal in central, eastern US

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — The cold air is almost out of the eastern U.S. It is already a few degrees warmer Friday morning compared to Thursday.A warmer push of air has already moved into the central U.S. with high temperatures from Kansas to Ohio about 10 to 15 degrees above average. Temperatures Friday in Chicago may reach nearly 50 degrees — about 20 degrees above average. Temperatures on Friday afternoon in Minneapolis will be in the 40s — not bad for January.This is typically the time of the year we see brutal shots of cold air coming over the central and eastern U.S.The mild weather slides eastward through the weekend. Temperatures will rise 10 to 20 degrees in the Northeast with temperatures in the 50s for the weekend.The prolonged mild trend in the Northeast means the threat of ice jam flooding continues through the weekend. Flood watches have been posted for parts of western New Jersey and eastern Pennsylvania along the Susquehanna and Delaware rivers.There is some forecast guidance that suggests colder weather will return to the central U.S. by early February.Northwest storms on the wayAnother round of heavy rain and snow affected parts of the Northwest on Thursday. A few strong thunderstorms developed in Northern California, bringing hail and even a brief tornado warning. Near pea-sized hail fell in parts of Northern California as well.Scattered showers and some snow will affect the region again on Friday. As we head into this weekend, another round of heavy rain moves in and lasts through Monday.Thursday, there was growing concern that the heaviest of the rain would head near the major I-5 metro areas. On Friday morning, the forecast shows at least some of the moisture will move toward British Columbia for at least part of the weekend.Our new rainfall forecast shows 4 to 6 inches along the immediate coast, with locally higher amounts in the Olympic and Cascade mountains. This will bring an increasing threat for landslides by the end of the weekend.Nearly 1 to 2 feet of snow will fall in parts of the Cascades through Saturday. Locally heavy snow at times Saturday could lead to difficult driving conditions in the mountain passes. On Sunday, warmer air will increase the threat for avalanches.Looking aheadOutside of the Northwest storms, much of the country is rather quiet — considering this is typically a turbulent time of the year for weather.There will be some heavy rain that moves along the Gulf Coast over the weekend. Locally, 2 to 3 inches of rain will fall along the coast from Louisiana to Florida.Forecast guidance is still hinting at the possibility of a coastal storm developing early next week. At this point it still appears that the storm will stay far away from the coast to limit the impacts to the eastern U.S. However, the system does warrant at least some monitoring over the next few days.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
