Daemen Transitions to Tobacco-Free Campus

Daemen Transitions to Tobacco-Free Campus

As a major initiative in fostering a healthy college environment, Daemen College has implemented a new tobacco-free policy, effective Sept. 6, 2016.

In doing so, Daemen joins more than 1,100 colleges and universities across the U.S. that have made a strong commitment to promoting the health and well-being of their college community by creating a 100 percent tobacco-free campus.

“In light of the many health risks associated with tobacco use, creating a campus environment that’s clean and free from tobacco products is key to the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors,” said Daemen President Gary A. Olson. “The courtesy and cooperation of everyone on campus will contribute to making this a successful transition, and we will provide the collegial support needed to members of the Daemen community who may find this change to be challenging.”

Inview Vehicle Trim: A Lifesaving Idea Whose Time Has Come

Inview Vehicle Trim: A Lifesaving Idea Whose Time Has Come

By Tom Torbjornsen

Last year I had the good fortune to meet a businessman and inventor named Peter Gold. Peter is a very interesting person, having started the highly successful Gold Glass Group in a garage in 1994. He has the unique gift of seeing a need and delivering it to the end consumer, and he also understands marketing and how to communicate. He holds over 80 patents for glass moldings that virtually eliminated hundreds of glass molding applications. Gold retired from Gold Glass Group in 2009, leaving a multimillion dollar corporation to family members.

Brilliant minds do not stop when they retire from industry, and such is the case with Gold. One day he asked himself how he could use his knowledge and business experience to save lives. The result was Inview Vehicle Trim®.

To celebrate their century long achievement, they are introducing a new line of Buffalo-themed items to their product list!

Located at 375 Norfolk Ave. in Buffalo, M.A. Moslow & Bro. Inc. was founded in Buffalo in 1917 by Martin Anthony Moslow, great-grandfather of current owner David Moslow. The business got its start manufacturing wood products for the U.S. Army during World War I. In 1930, David’s grandfather, Joseph Moslow, took over the company and began manufacturing wood furniture frames for another Buffalo-based business, the Kittinger Furniture Company. David’s father, Neal, guided the company into the awards and recognition industry in 1960.
