If you need help developing your personal brand, the Business Women’s Forum is holding a luncheon tomorrow focused on Personal Brand Building for Non-Marketers.

When the temperatures start to rise Utah sees a new threat to our air quality—ozone. Summer time ozone is just as harmful to our health as winter inversions.

Ozone is pollution that you can’t see, that’s created by a mix of emissions combined with sunshine and high temperatures.

Last week, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency gave Utah three years to address and reverse our record high ozone levels.

The counties with the highest ozone levels include Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Tooele, Utah, Uintah, and Duchesne.

Looking forward, there are ways that we can all do our part in lowering the levels of ozone in Utah, such as carpooling, conserving energy, utilizing public transit, choosing green cleaning products, biking, and being idle free, to name a few

If you are interested in learning about additional ways you can help reduce emissions, UCAIR is a great resource. They have made it easier for individuals, businesses and communities to make small changes to improve Utah’s air.

For more information on how you can help clear the air, visit ucair.org. That’s UCAIR.org

Salt Lake City has been named one of the Best Places to Retire in 2018 by Forbes Magazine.

For a city to make the list, it needs to fit a list of requirements, which range from cost-of-living to economic prosperity, taxes to quality of life.

How did Salt Lake City fare?

We received high marks for our strong economy, with no state estate/inheritance tax; a very high rank on the Milken Institute list of best cities for successful aging, and an above-average number of doctors per capita. Not only that, Salt Lake City was also recognized for its walkability and bikeability.

While intangible qualities like culture and science aren’t considered for the list, they don’t hurt. And SLC has both in abundance.

The article says, “11 cities on the list are college towns, which usually means they offer added culture and educational opportunities.”

Having the University of Utah as part of Salt Lake City provides a cultural aspect people love.
