Black Businesses Decimated by Lack of Federal Procurement Contracting Opportunities

Solutions to Be Discussed at National Black Chamber of Commerce Annual Conference, A More Dynamic Economy

Black businesses have been decimated by lack of federal procurement contracting opportunities.”

— Harry C. Alford, National Black Chamber of Commerce, president and CEO

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, July 2, 2018 / — “Black businesses have been decimated by lack of federal procurement contracting opportunities,” says Harry C. Alford, president and CEO of the National Black Chamber of Commerce (NBCC). The federal government is the biggest potential customer to American business. If Black owned businesses are to develop a major business client base it will be the federal government with all of its agencies. The numbers are kept by the General Services Administration’s Federal Procurement Data Systems. They count every procurement dollar by race, gender, economic level, disabilities, veterans, and other categories.

In the year 2001, the George W. Bush Administration came in power and under his two administrations Black business procurement started growing at a steady rate. By 2008 Black businesses were at nearly 8% participation at the federal level. The growth meant hundreds of billions of dollars into the Black community replete with new employment.
Businesses have fallen from 8% Black participation in the Bush Administration to the following after President Obama’s years: Fiscal Year 2016: Blacks accounted for 1.8% percent of the total federal spend. Fiscal Year 2017: Blacks accounted for 1.8% percent of the total federal spend. Fiscal Year 2018 to date (June 22, 2018) Blacks accounted for 1.6%. (Fiscal years are from October 1 – through September 30. Fiscal year 2018 will end this September 30.)

One glaring example of the decimation is Housing and Urban Development (HUD) which did over 30% with Black businesses during the Bush Administration and dramatically dropped to 1.4% in 2017. “We are planning to work with Federal Agencies to turn this situation around” says Alford.

Solutions to increase federal procurement levels will be discussed at the National Black Chamber of Commerce’s 26th annual conference, A More Dynamic Economy – How to Transfer Our Analogue Economy with 21st Century Solutions. The conference will take place in Washington, DC July 19-21, 2018. Other discussions include Project Labor Agreements, economic empowerment through the church, future infrastructure projects and 5G wireless deployment. For more information go to

The National Black Chamber of Commerce® is dedicated to economically empowering and sustaining African American communities through entrepreneurship and capitalistic activity within the United States and via interaction with the Black Diaspora.

Beneficial-Use Water Pilot Test Solves Key Water Issues

Encore Green

Agricultural Company, Encore Green

Agriculture Company, Encore Green, Turns Oil Well Produced Water into Beneficial-Use Water

“This has changed everything. Our proprietary methodology aids the oil industry by giving them a solution instead throwing away the water. ”

— Darlene Nash, Owner, Encore Green, LLC.

CHEYENNE, WYOMING, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 2, 2018 / — Wyoming based agriculture company, Encore Green, LLC has just released the results of their pilot water test, which took barrels of produced water from an oil well and converted it into water that is ideal for beneficial-use.

This solves potentially three problems at once. The oil industry produces 890 billion gallons of produced (by-product) water in the US each year. With a tiny percentage used for fracking, this water is disposed of, either by injection into the ground or left to evaporate. Meanwhile adjacent to these same oil wells that are producing this water are the nation’s farms and ranches, which are in desperate need of water for crops and herds. At the same time, over in the town, municipalities struggle for relief for the growing demand for water for homes and businesses.

“This has changed everything,” says Encore Green owner, Darlene Nash. “Our proprietary methodology aids the oil industry by giving them a solution instead throwing away the water. The methodology allows the agricultural community to have easy-to-come by water. And if water is not being used for irrigation and herds, then there’s more water for the municipalities. Everybody wins. With such great test results, we have now taken this from theory into practice. “

The primary goal of cleaning the water has been for beneficial use for the agricultural community.

“The test results are remarkable,” says certified professional agronomist, Neil Fehringer from Fehringer Agricultural Consulting. “This water is now good quality irrigation water.”

What makes these results landmark is that the produced water was cleaned within an economic model that is better or the same as the cost of conventional produced water disposal. Previous efforts have typically left one of the participants bearing a higher cost.

“I’m a big believer in that everyone has to win. So, the financial model had to be fair and stay inside the current economic parameters. Encore Green is an agriculture company and our goal has always been to be good stewards of our water. Water is vital to crops, stock, and many other beneficial uses. Now, we can take the billions of barrels of water that we are essentially just throwing away or injecting into the ground and turn them into beneficial-use,” says Marvin Nash.

Encore Green has worked the past year to bring all the parties together for this proof of concept test. Encore Green insists that the victory is, however, not only a technology victory, but rather it’s a victory in methodology.

“There’s a few unique things which we did that simply hadn’t been tried before,” says Encore Green General Manager, Marvin Nash. “We had to develop methods to match the soil DNA with the water DNA to know the right specs to clean the water. We had to find the right partners and we had to get a permit for this. It took much longer than we thought, but we simply stayed with it until we were done.”

“We partnered together the water and soil scientists, engineers, the landowner, the oil company, the cleaning technology company, and then worked with state legislators, the governor’s office, the federal and state permitting groups and all of that brought us to this point of success today. The key is not any one of those groups. The whole is much greater than the sum of its parts. And working together is the only way we are going to solve the water crisis we have.”

Encore Green is open to conversations with citizens concerned about water, the energy industry, ranchers, famers, or local municipalities. To speak with Encore Green, LLC, visit or call 818.470.0285.

#MetaHash Opened MainNet and Started Coin Distribution for the Upcoming Forging

#MetaHash MainNet Launch

ZUG, SWITZERLAND, July 2, 2018 / — On 29th of June, #MetaHash, a MultiPoS consensus blockchain and decentralized real-time application platform, opened its MainNet and started queue-based coin sale prior to its upcoming start of forging initiatives. The MainNet is preceded by months of load tests and a public TestNet, which showed results above declared capacity of more than 60,000 TPS, with under 3 seconds of validation through more than 500 billion transactions processed within the test phase.

With the opening of the MainNet and start of #MetaHashCoin (#MHC) distribution, the first buyers will benefit from forging early, before the amount of forgers increases and forging rewards are split between more participants. Starting from 12:00 UTC on 29th of June #MHC can be bought via ETH or BTC, but at a price equal to $0.0391 converted at the exchange rate at the time of purchase. During the coin offering 920,000,000 coins will be distributed and the goal of the initial offering is set at $36 million.

Owners of #MHC will become the first nodes contributing into the network’s growth and enjoying the full advantages of the early forging, scheduled for August this year.

In comparison to mining, forging does not require hardware with lots of computational power like ASICs or video cards. The protection of the network consensus is based on the value of the network native coins, which is enough to rent any common web-server, or use a home PC that has a good internet connection.

50 percent of all rewards of forging are distributed among #MHC owners, 40 percent are granted to nodes’ owners and the remaining 10 percent are used to reward #MetaGate browser’s active users. Coin holders can also entrust their voting rights to their own nodes, or may give their voting right to a trusted node operator and get a share of the commission. This way, large numbers of votes are concentrated at nodes that the community trusts, making attacks on the system more difficult.
