HALIFAX – Expressing his hopes for watching the Memorial Cup without failure, Jacques Dube, the CAO of Halifax Regional Municipality, announced that Scotiabank Centre will get a new score clock and video production room. Due to the unpredictability about the failure of the Scotiabank Centre score clock, Dube said that it was necessary to replace the score clock.

The four-team, nine-day tournament, Memorial Cup is going to take place in Halifax and that is why the new Score clock worth $1250,602 will be installed for spectators. Matt Whitman, Coun, at Hammonds Plains-St. Margarets expressed his unwillingness on hearing the price of the replacement clock for the first time. Then, John Traves, the municipal lawyer responded that there is no other alternative available than to get a new clock. Also, he said that the clock has already crossed its usable life so it is the right decision to replace it.

Dube hinted at the risks involved in the effectiveness of the aging clock for the Memorial Cup. However, he said that all the necessary extra parts have been collected to ensure the safe going of games. Currently, multi-year, multi-phase recapitalization program is going for the Scotiabank Centre. A number of upgradations such as the installation of a new ice slab, new roof, new basketball floor, new seats, concourse, mezzanine washrooms, and LED lighting have been completed till now.

A high definition video production system will take the place of the current video system which is an outdated standard definition technology. New electrical infrastructure to meet modern broadcast standards will be installed successfully. The replacement tender was released online on Nova Scotia Procurement website on March 21 and Matrix Video Communications Corp. bid had been accepted for it. It will start the work on the replacement clock soon and would complete it by the month of September.

Meathead Movers, a San Luis Obispo-based moving company, has taken a decision to increase the entry level pay for all movers and packers. The company has announced its move after taking into consideration the struggles of student-athletes who work as movers for Meathead. In the 22-year history, this is the highest raise ($3 per hour) that has been witnessed by its employees. This move would not only encourage more student-athletes to join Meathead movers, but would also provide more employment opportunities for them. But the raise for the Fresno location will be in the paychecks of 70 out of the total 80 employees.

Aaron Steed, CEO of Meathead Movers, has said that it was a subject of worry for the company as its student employees had been having a tough time meeting their ends meet due to the high cost of living. In order to find the optimal solution to this problem, they decided to figure out the ways to make money without disturbing the schedules of athletes. He said that raising the pay was the possible solution to ensure stability in the lives of student-athletes. Along with the pay-rise of employees, Meathead Movers is also planning to introduce around 200 employees in its five branches before the commencement of its busy season. Similar to this company, Phoenix Movers has also made its name for updating its policies for the welfare of its employees.

Meathead Movers, who currently has over 700 employees, handles more than 20,000 local movers per annum. This is what makes it the largest independent moving company. According to Steed, after this pay raise move, more student-athletes would show their interest for movers and packers service. He also hints about the future target of the company to emerge as the highest earning company due to the highest ability of its employees.
