All Year Cooling Commits To Veterans Discount

Coral Springs, Florida – WEBWIRE



All Year Cooling is committed to the veterans of South Florida offering a discount for all customers who’ve served in the armed forces. Current and former military members can enjoy $100 off a new air conditioner and 10% off all air conditioner repairs.


Most families making a change to their air conditioner are doing so spur of the moment. Perhaps something went wrong with the air conditioner, and it needs immediate attention.


There’s also the case of new buildings needing air conditioning set up for the first time. In South Florida, even a day without air conditioning can be a huge difference. The discount is meant to ease the financial burden.


To qualify for the discount, all veterans must show identification when setting up a repair or installation. All Year Cooling’s owner, Tommy Smith wants to give back to those men and women doing so much for their country.


Those Florida veterans still needing financial help beyond the discount can apply for financing with the company. Three different organizations are working directly with them to make it easy for customers to not feel required to make a huge payment upfront. There’s no minimum credit score, and shoppers receive expedited approvals for emergencies. The company works with Synchrony Financing, Ygrene Financing, and FTL Financing.


All year cooling also provides discounts and other coupons & promotions on their website. This makes pricing for the company amongst the cheapest in the south Florida, Coral Springs region.


Giving back to veterans is a passion of Mr. Smith and his daughter Riley. Running Project We Care, the younger Smith strives to strengthen families when they return home through her organization. Both All Year Cooling and Project We Care work together on several projects within the community offering different ways to give back.

Canada – Canada commits lethal weapons and ammunition in support of Ukraine

Today, the Government of Canada announced that it has authorized the provision of additional military assistance to the government of Ukraine to further help the Ukrainian security forces defend against Russia’s unwanted and escalating aggression against Ukraine.

February 14, 2022 – Ottawa, Ont. – National Defence / Canadian Armed Forces

Today, the Government of Canada announced that it has authorized the provision of additional military assistance to the government of Ukraine to further help the Ukrainian security forces defend against Russia’s unwanted and escalating aggression against Ukraine.

Canada will donate over $7 million of lethal weapons and assorted support items to the Armed Forces of Ukraine. This equipment includes machine guns, pistols, carbines, 1.5 million rounds of ammunition, sniper rifles, and various related equipment.

Canada stands resolute in its support of Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence and continues to condemn Russian aggression as it builds up its military forces around Ukraine. Canada remains committed to a diplomatic solution and continues to call on Russia to de-escalate and engage in meaningful dialogue. As previously stated, any further aggression on the part of Russia will be met with serious consequences, including through coordinated sanctions, and Canada continues to work with allies and partners on a coordinated response.

Together with the financial contributions announced today by the Government of Canada, as well as earlier donations of non-lethal assistance, these measures represent a significant and coordinated response from Canada to the developing situation in Ukraine. Canada, along with our allies and partners, remains committed to supporting Ukraine and its people as they continue to defend themselves against Russia’s destabilizing actions. 

“Canada is deeply concerned by Russia’s military build-up in and around Ukraine, which presents a significant threat to the rules-based international order. Following conversations with our Ukrainian partners, including during my recent trip to Ukraine, Canada has authorized the provision of defensive weapons to assist Ukraine in defending its sovereignty and territorial integrity. I remain in close contact with my Ukrainian counterpart, Minister Reznikov, and alongside our allies, we will continue to support Ukraine as it protects itself against Russia’s unwarranted aggression.”

The Honourable Anita Anand, Minister of National Defence

“Canada remains resolute in supporting Ukraine’s sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence. Canada will continue to work closely with the Ukrainian government and allies in the region to protect Ukraine’s security and economic resilience.”

The Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Foreign Affairs

Today’s donation adds to the more than $23 million of military equipment – including communications gear, a mobile field hospital, explosive disposal equipment, and body armour – that Canada has already given to Ukraine since 2015.

Since 2014, Canada has provided Ukraine with more than $890 million in multifaceted assistance to support Ukraine’s security, prosperity, and reform objectives. In the long-term, reforms are the most effective strategy for building Ukraine’s resilience to Russian aggression.

Through Canada’s Peace and Stabilization Operations Program, Canada is currently supporting over $16 million in ongoing multi-year programming focused on security sector and defence reform in Ukraine, including a strong focus on advancing Ukraine’s Women Peace and Security National Action Plan. 

Since the start of Operation UNIFIER, Canadian troops have conducted more than 700 courses, training more than 33,000 Ukrainian military and security personnel in battlefield tactics, maneuver, and other advanced military skills.

Since Russia’s attempted annexation and illegal occupation of Crimea in 2014, Canada has imposed sanctions on more than 440 individuals and entities, many in coordination with allies.

COP26: FIFA commits to net-zero emission by 2040 and launches FIFA Climate Strategy

  • FIFA President confirms pledge to UNFCCC Sports for Climate Action Framework

  • FIFA Council member Isha Johansen delivers keynote speech at climate summit in Scotland

  • Coinciding with the event, FIFA publishes comprehensive FIFA Climate Strategy

Joining the calls for action as world leaders meet at the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Scotland, FIFA is taking a leading role in the world of sport by confirming its pledge to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change − Sports for Climate Action Framework. This includes a commitment to reducing emissions by 50% by 2030 and reaching net zero by 2040, as part of a detailed FIFA Climate Strategy that lays out plans to accelerate the delivery of solutions to protect our beautiful planet and our beautiful game. “This is a critical moment. The change in weather patterns is impacting the environment and its rich biodiversity, food security and access to fresh water, as well as the health and well-being of individuals,” said FIFA President Gianni Infantino in a video address to the delegates gathered in Glasgow. “Following my election as FIFA President in 2016, FIFA became the first international sports organisation to join the UNFCCC Climate Neutral Now campaign, pledging to measure, reduce and compensate the greenhouse gas emissions associated with the FIFA World Cups™. I am proud to announce today that − based on our long experience with climate action in football − FIFA has developed a comprehensive climate strategy and is committed to investing substantial resources that will allow FIFA and football to reach the ambitious and necessary objectives of the UNFCCC Sports for Climate Action Framework.” The FIFA Climate Strategy consists of four pillars and three key goals that will put FIFA on the path to climate-friendly performance, to protect FIFA’s tournaments from the negative climate change impacts, and to ensure climate-resilient football development across FIFA operations and events by 2040. It includes a host of concrete initiatives to:

  • educate the global football workforce on climate-related impacts and climate-friendly solutions;

  • adapt football regulations and activities to be more resilient to current and anticipated impacts of climate change;

  • reduce the carbon emissions of FIFA and football to contribute to the Paris Agreement and the UNFCCC Sports for Climate Action Framework objectives; and

  • invest in climate protection and support football stakeholders with access to know-how to tackle the impacts of climate change.

“We, as inhabitants of this planet, must all make this our priority,” added FIFA Council member Isha Johansen in addressing the Sports for Climate Action − On the Race to Zero session at COP26. “Football also has the power to radically shift mindsets on climate change and mainstream climate action. We have a huge, attentive audience and it is our duty to amplify these key messages. “We will help educate fans on climate change and encourage them to play their part in protecting the planet and the beautiful game. We have a moral, urgent duty to accelerate our action. Our commitment to protecting our climate remains unwavering.”

Japan – NTT DOCOMO Commits to Carbon Neutrality by 2030, Aiming to Achieve Effectively Zero Greenhouse Gas Emissions

NTT DOCOMO has announced its commitment to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions arising from its business activities effectively to zero by 2030. In order to help society as a whole achieve carbon neutrality, DOCOMO will roll out a new ecosystem called “Caboneu TM” in conjunction with its partners and customers, under the slogan “Saving Our Planet With You.”

In Japan, mobile telecommunications carriers currently emit greenhouse gases equivalent to the emissions of about 10 million private vehicles through their business activities such as the operation of base stations and the manufacture and delivery of smartphones.(1)

DOCOMO will achieve carbon neutrality by applying cutting-edge technology to improve energy efficiency and by procuring clean energy from renewable sources. It will also make efforts to directly procure renewable energy from solar power plants dedicated to supplying DOCOMO,(2) and from other sources. Across its value chain, the company will promote the use of renewable energy through initiatives such as the installation of solar panels with the aim of becoming an environmentally-friendly telecom carrier.

In addition to achieving carbon neutrality in the course of its own business activities, DOCOMO will cooperate with its customers and partner companies to help achieve zero greenhouse gas emissions for the benefit of the whole of society.

DOCOMO will continue to provide new services for consumers that will contribute to zero CO2 emissions. “Green 5G TM” will provide 5G networks powered effectively with 100% renewable energy(3) from this October. DOCOMO also plans to commence the sale of electricity generated from renewable sources as “docomo Denki Green” in the retail market directly to customers from March 2022 in its “docomo Denki” electricity service lineup. In collaboration with partner companies, the company will also consider delivering environmentally-friendly products and services, and in conjunction with our customers who will use these products and services, will promote carbon neutrality for the benefit of the whole of society.

DOCOMO’s planned Caboneu platform will allow customers to visualize the contribution their own activities make to greenhouse gas emissions and help them understand how they can help achieve carbon neutrality as part of the “Caboneu” ecosystem.

Going forward, DOCOMO will continue to strive to improve customer service and achieve sustainable corporate development, with the aim of helping to create a society in which people can live in greater safety, security, comfort, and prosperity, in all countries and regions, and across all generations.

(1) Greenhouse gas emissions in FY2019 announced by Japanese mobile telecom carriers (DOCOMO, KDDI, Softbank and Rakuten) are added together and divided by the amount of greenhouse gas emissions per private vehicle to estimate the equivalent number of vehicles.
(2) The company will use electricity generated effectively from 100% renewable energy sources, including the use of non-fossil fuel certificates designated as renewable energy.
(3) Effectively 100% renewable energy, including the use of non-fossil fuel certificates designated as renewable energy.

About NTT DOCOMO

NTT DOCOMO, Japan’s leading mobile operator with over 82 million subscriptions, is one of the world’s foremost contributors to 3G, 4G and 5G mobile network technologies. Beyond core communications services, DOCOMO is challenging new frontiers in collaboration with a growing number of entities (“+d” partners), creating exciting and convenient value-added services that change the way people live and work. Under a medium-term plan toward 2020 and beyond, DOCOMO is pioneering a leading-edge 5G network to facilitate innovative services that will amaze and inspire customers beyond their expectations. https://www.nttdocomo.co.jp/english/.
