In continuing our efforts to promote sustainability at Eagleview corporate center, The Hankin Group will host an “e-waste” recycling event with the Pennsylvania Resources Council & Ecovanta on June 22nd from 9am-2pm in Eagleview Town Center.
According to Ecovanta, over 3 million tons of electronic waste is disposed of each year yet only 14% is recovered for recycling.
You certainly may want to take advantage of this program because you are no longer allowed to dispose of specific electronic devices in your regular trash pick up. Enacted in 2010, the Pennsylvania Covered Device Recycling Act requires that consumers not dispose of covered devices, such as computers, laptops, monitors and televisions, with their regular trash. This means that trash haulers will no longer be able to take covered devices unless the municipality has a curbside electronics collection program that ultimately sends the devices to an electronics recycler.
Anything that plugs in that does not contain Freon is acceptable for recycling! For information on the Pennsylvania Resources Council, visit prc.org and for information on Ecovanta, visit ecovanta.com.
A wide range of electronic materials are accepted such as: Continue reading
Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern PA (BBBS SEPA) recently moved one of their local offices into the Eagleview community. “We were looking for a larger, more convenient office space, and this fit the bill,” commented Judy Spangler, Chief Program Officer for the organization. “We already have several great corporate partnerships in Chester County, like Bentley Systems and QVC, and are excited to get to know our new neighbors. We are planning an open house this summer to get the word out about the impact our program has in this community and hope to build new corporate partnerships and find new volunteer mentors.”
Big Brothers Big Sisters’ one-to-one mentoring changes the trajectory for at-risk children. Youth in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program are 46% less likely to begin using illegal drugs; 27% less likely to begin using alcohol; and 52% less likely to skip school.
The organization is looking for volunteers to be matched with the 1,000+ children they have on their waiting list, many of whom reside in Chester County. Spending just a few hours, twice a month with a child can make a big impact. You don’t need to be perfect or spend a lot of money to be a good mentor. You can do the things you’d normally do, like run errands, play basketball, cook or visit a park. Just spending one-on-one time with a child who needs an extra friend has been proven to make a difference.
In Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties, nearly 3,000 children annually are more successful socially and academically because of the work of Big Brothers Big Sisters Southeastern PA.

It’s a question more and more Americans are asking. Studies show that life expectancies are rising. If you’re a 65 year old male, you have a 50% chance of living beyond 87 and if you are a 65 year old woman, you have a 50% chance of living beyond 94.
The good news is that if you plan properly, you can retire with confidence knowing you won’t outlive your money. Having reasonable goals and the ability to stick to them is key. Setting retirement goals is not just about dollars and sense. It’s also about drawing on your values and hopes to create a satisfying life. For some, that may mean continuing to work past age 65, or even starting a new career. Others may be ready to start relaxing, volunteering, traveling or pursuing a pastime.
Because each individual’s idea of the perfect retirement is unique, everybody will have different financial needs and resources. We’ll help you determine what yours will be based on your vision of being retired. Here is a list of items to think about when estimating your retirement budget:
• Essential Expenses — food, shelter, clothing, health care, transportation and taxes
• Discretionary Expenses — travel, hobbies, entertaining, donations, maybe a 2nd home
• Guaranteed Income — Social Security, Pensions, and Annuities
• Investment Income — Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds
At Clark & Goshow Financial Strategies Group, we’ll take the time to get to know you. We’ll look at your complete financial picture and create a plan that provides you with confidence in your financial future. Our Envision process helps identify where you are, where you want to go and how you plan to get there. Contact us to begin “Envisioning Your Tomorrow… Today”.
You’re probably accustomed to measuring the progress of your investments, and the overall condition of the investment world, by checking on indexes such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500. And since these types of benchmarks focus almost exclusively on American companies, you might get the idea that the best investments are located right here in the United States. But that impression would be false — because there are, literally, a world of investment opportunities beyond the U.S. borders.
In fact, as of the end of 2010, U.S. stock markets constituted less than a third of the total global stock market value, according to the World Bank. And you can probably just look around at the products you use in your daily life to identify many successful foreign companies.
Why invest a portion of your portfolio internationally? Here are a couple of reasons to consider: Continue reading
WHAT IS FMS?
The Functional Movement Screen is an innovative system used to evaluate movement pattern quality for clients & athletes.
The screen is comprised of seven fundamental movement patterns that require a balance of mobility and stability and place the individual in positions where weaknesses and imbalances become noticeable.
• Deep Squat
• Hurdle Step
• In-Line Lunge
• Shoulder Mobility
Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.
Older, younger, active, not-so-active, everyone has unique movement imbalances and limitations that can lead to pain and injury. The Functional Movement Screen reveals your weaknesses so you can begin strengthening them, working out in a gentle but highly targeted and effective way. Based on your screen, Passion for Fitness develops a customized plan of corrective exercises that meets your needs, continually tracking and updating your plan as you progress.
You don’t have to be an athlete to suffer the aches and pains of age and activity, so turn back the clock on wear and tear with the Functional Movement Screen today! For more information, visit functionalmovement.com. Continue reading
