Rowling Announces She Will Not Be Releasing New Stories in 2014

In addition to operating a jewelry design studio, Henryk Gudas oversees a successful construction company specializing in both residential and commercial building projects. In his free time, Henryk Gudas enjoys a number of activities, including traveling, swimming, and reading. He particularly enjoys J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series.

Despite rumors to the contrary, Harry Potter fans will not be reading any new Potter stories this holiday season. Recently, media reports on a number of sites featured headlines declaring that J.K. Rowling would be publishing a new story set in the Potter universe each day for the 12 days leading up to Christmas.

However, on her fantasy website, Pottermore, Rowling has announced that there are no such stories on the way. This likely comes as very sad news for the millions of Harry Potter fans who anxiously await the release of any new Potter-themed material.

Earlier this year, Rowling did publish a half dozen new stories about several Potter characters, including evil Hogwarts professor Dolores Umbridge. After Rowling’s disappointing announcement, the recently released stories, and the seven original books from the Harry Potter series, will have to satisfy fans for the time being.

EPA Certification in Lead Safety

As the business owner of Construction, LLC, Henryk Gudas oversees various aspects of business and design in the construction of custom furniture, kitchens, and bathroom vanities. Henryk Gudas brings extensive knowledge of carpentry to his current position, as well as certifications from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety and Hazard Administration (OSHA).

In order to obtain a lead-safe certification from the EPA, business owners must first determine where their workplace will be located. A number of states, such as Massachusetts and North Carolina, run state-sponsored lead safety programs to which business owners must apply. The majority of business owners, however, can visit www.epa.gov to apply for either certification or recertification.

While the firm itself pursues EPA certification, each employee working at the company must be trained in the official EPA Lead-Safe Work Practices. Each business must also have at least one employee complete the eight-hour renovator training course in order to become a certified EPA renovator. Once a company has complied with all lead-safe standards, the EPA grants certification and the business can begin using the EPA lead-safe logo on all advertising and professional materials.
