Jet Airways Prabhu asks aviation secy to hold emergency meet

first_imgMumbai: Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu on Tuesday directed his ministry’s secretary to hold an emergency meeting on the debt-ridden Jet Airways massively cancelling flights after grounding of a large part of its fleet. The minister’s direction came in the wake of the airliner drastically reducing its operations due to liquidity crunch. “Directed Secretary, @MOCA GOI to hold an emergency meeting on grounding of flights by Jet Airways, advance bookings, cancellations, refunds and safety issues, if any,” Prabhu said in a tweet. “Asked him (civil aviation secretary) to get a report on Jet compliance issues immediately from DGCA,” he added. Earlier Monday, Jet Airways engineers’ body wrote to aviation regulator DGCA, seeking its intervention in the recovery of their salary dues, saying non-payment was affecting their psychological condition which, in turn, was a “risk” to the airline’s flight operations.last_img read more

Exxon affiliate to drill new oil well in Stabroek Block soon

Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)RelatedPreparations being finalised for Exxon to commence drilling Liza-5 well soonMarch 5, 2018In “latest news”Exxon Mobil confirms new oil discovery in Snoek well offshore GuyanaMarch 30, 2017In “Business”Exxon begins drilling at Payara locationNovember 11, 2016In “latest news” -MARAD calling on vessels to avoid areaEsso Exploration and Production Guyana Ltd (EEPGL), an affiliate of oil giant ExxonMobil, is slated to commence a three-month drilling operation at a new well within the Stabroek Block.This was revealed following a notice from the Guyana Maritime Administration Department (MARAD). It is understood that drilling of the well, dubbed the Ranger=1 Well Site, will commence from October 11.The Stena Carron drill shipThe Department noted that there would be five vessels partaking in the operation which would be displaying the relevant international signal for oil exploration: the Stena Carron; the MV Cat Island; the MV Fast Titan; the MV Hannah Chouest and the HOS Commander.The drill site, according to MARAD, is 160 nautical miles from Guyana’s coast and covers a square kilometre. The coordinates, the Department noted, are 08 degrees, 56.340’, 08 degrees, 56.340’, 08 degrees, 55.250’ and 08 degrees 55.250’ at Latitude North.At Longitude West, the coordinates were 057 degrees, 18.680’, 057 degrees, 17.590’, 057 degrees, 17.590’ and 057 degrees, 18.680’. These are all in Zone 21.Urging that ordinary vessels in the zone stay clear of the operation and these vessels, MARAD also encouraged vessels to navigate with caution when in the vicinity and to radio on VHF Ch. 16 or via the Georgetown Lighthouse.Drilling has consistently encountered oil reservoirs since ExxonMobil’s 2015 oil find in Guyana. In May of that year, Exxon confirmed that more than 295 feet of high-quality oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs was encountered at its Liza 1 exploration well.In late June 2016, Exxon’s drilling results at Liza 2 revealed more than 58 metres of oil-bearing sandstone reservoirs in Upper Cretaceous formations. The well was drilled to 5475 metres at 1692 metres water depth. Drilling results confirmed recoverable resources to be between 800 million and 1.4 billion barrels of oil equivalent. Data from the Liza 2 well test is being assessed.The company had announced that it made its third significant discovery in its drilling explorations offshore Guyana. Its partner, Hess Corporation, had noted that the Liza 3 exploratory well’s net value could be US$6.2 billion based on calculations from the Bank of Montreal (BMO) Capital Markets.Drilling on Payara began on November 12, 2016, with initial total depth reached on December 2, 2016.In January of this year, the oil giant had announced it had struck oil in its Payara-1 well, targeting the same type of reservoirs as the well’s Liza counterpart. The lesser known Orinduik oil block has been under the administration of Eco Guyana and Tullow, after they signed a 10-year Petroleum Prospecting Licence and Production Sharing Agreement with Government last year.

Civeo picks up major mine hospitality services contracts in Australia and Canada

first_imgCiveo Corporation has announced that it has secured two contracts expected to total approximately $90 million in revenues spanning 2019-2023. This includes in Australia with the award of a room commitment from Whitehaven Coal Mining to provide rooms and hospitality services from the company’s existing Boggabri and Narrabri accommodations facilities in Australia. The contract is for an initial three year time period, with a minimum room commitment and an option to extend for an additional two years. It is anticipated the initial commitment will generate approximately A$22 million in total revenues over 2019-2021.In Canada the Company was awarded a hospitality services contract to operate a 1,540-room facility for an oil sands operator in Canada with expected revenues totalling approximately C$100 million over the initial term. The contract is for an initial term of five years with an option to extend for an additional five years.“These new contracts across our operating regions in both Canada and Australia demonstrate the strength and quality of our service offerings and are consistent with our strategy of continuing to win work at our current lodges while expanding our offering of hospitality services to customer owned facilities. These contracts were already contemplated in the preliminary 2019 guidance communicated on our third quarter 2018 earnings conference call,” said Bradley J. Dodson, Civeo’s President and Chief Executive Officer.last_img read more

The first wave of HP Windows 8 laptops unveiled including the Envy

first_imgWith Windows 8‘s release less than two months away all the PC manufacturers are finishing up preparations on their newest machines. The release of a new OS version is a prime time for consumers to buy a PC and manufacturers are more tan happy to sell them one, outfitted with all the features that go hand-in-hand with that update. In the case of Windows 8 those features range from a new Windows logo on the keyboard, to touch/gesture readiness, and extreme mobile-friendliness. This also includes the newest gear from Intel/AMD, features like Thunderbolt on high-end models, and designs that account for Intel’s ultrabook standard as well as the burgeoning post-PC era.Today HP announced two new laptops and one updated one in their prosumer lines (Envy and Spectre). Going from the least exciting to the most, there is the Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 (the update), the Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook (the high-end model), and the Envy x2 (the hybrid computer).The Envy TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 is an updated version of HP’s existing Envy 4 ultrabook. This new model adds a touchscreen and Windows 8, and will be a few dollars more than the existing model. There is no official price yet, but it should go for around $800 and be a reasonably solid thin-and-light system. It will pack a 14-inch, 1366×768 display, 8 hours of battery life, and optional AMD discrete graphics. The machine will be 23mm thick (barely in the ultrabook range) and 4.77 pounds.HP’s higher end, just-announced laptop is the Spectre XT TouchSmart Ultrabook. It’s the same weight as the Envy 4 but it’s a 15.6-inch computer and is just 17.9mm thick, making this HP’s MacBook Pro%displayPrice% at %seller% competitor. It has a 15.6-inch IPS multitouch LCD, Thunderbolt (in addition to USB 3.0), HDMI, ethernet, and has optional 128GB or 256GB SSDs. This system will start at $1399.The most unique of HP’s new prosumer offerings is the Envy x2 hybrid computer. This is a sort of like the Lenovo IdeaPad U1 in that it’s essentially a tablet with a removable keyboard, but the x2 has an Intel processor and only runs Windows (no Android). The x2’s features an 11.6-inch, Atom-powered (Clover Trail) tablet that connects to a keyboard dock with a quick, clean motion. The keyboard is essentially a USB hub with a built-in battery which is about equal to the size of the one in the tablet. So separate them and you have a Windows 8 tablet, combine the two and you have a touchscreen laptop with a full-sized keyboard and twice the battery life. The system has 64GB of flash storage, microSD expandability, and a few nice perks, including NFC, Beats audio, and an IPS panel.Keen observers might note that the Envy x2 is essentially a netbook with a removable keyboard but it’s a sensible offering for HP to make, even if it never captures a large part of the market. With an expected total weight of about 2.5 pounds it’s quite portable for a laptop and Windows 8 should run well on Clover Trail, so it will be a functional computer despite its small size.There is no pricing information for the Envy X2 yet, but HP says it’ll be out before the holidays. The other systems will be available in the same time frame, likely some time in December.HP20120808872HP20120808872HP20120808871HP ENVY x2HP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4_left facingHP ENVY TouchSmart Ultrabook 4 – Win8 screenHP ENVY TouchSmart Sleekbook 4_left facinglast_img read more

Vancouver a launching point for Joey Gibson rally

first_imgAs Portland gears up for Saturday’s demonstrations by far-right protest groups, Vancouver too can expect to see impacts from the scheduled protest.Patriot Prayer, led by Vancouver’s Joey Gibson, will descend on Portland this weekend in the latest of a series of demonstrations. But before traveling across the Columbia River, protesters are expected to gather at the Grand Central Retail Center at 2500 Columbia House Blvd., just east of downtown. According to a Facebook event page for Saturday’s rally, Patriot Prayer will provide shuttles starting at 10 a.m., with armed security on each bus.“There is a giant parking lot next to the drop off spot and is extremely busy so it will be hard for people to go after your car but it isn’t a guarantee,” Gibson wrote on Facebook.But Portland-based commercial real estate firm NAI Elliot, which manages the property, issued a statement Friday announcing that the group does not have permission to use the parking lot or premises, and that only those shopping or working can use the lot. People who park for any other reason face being towed at their own expense.“For us it’s very simple,” Vice President Jordan Elliot said. “It’s a private piece of property that’s intended for retail use.”The epicenter of Saturday’s protests will be at the intersection of Naito Parkway and Southwest Salmon Street near Tom McCall Waterfront Park in Portland. Members of the Proud Boys, which the Southern Poverty Law Center classified as a hate group, are also expected to attend, as are counterprotesters and antifascist groups.last_img read more

Counting Page Views Dont Call It A Business Model

first_imgThe right metric for publishers should be revenue performance indicators (RPI), which means the metrics tie directly to the business model. Many publishers are looking to build recurring revenue streams from loyal audience members, and in this case, RPIs such as audience size, loyalty, and level of engagement are meaningful. However, some publishers are relying on non-recurring revenue from SEO acquired visitors, and in this case, RPIs such as percentage share of search and time on site become more relevant. In paid content, RPIs such as price per article or price per device become critical. And for all of these business models, average revenue per user (ARPU) is the RPI for benchmarking efficiency and profit (see my post on ARPU here).While correlating user behavior to the business model is the only way to judge revenue performance, surprisingly few publishers can differentiate between a page view that is aligned to the business model vs. a page view that is not. Consequently, many publishers are chasing low value page views and jeopardizing their long-term viability. Might as well hire some bots….. This post is reprinted with permission and originally appears here. Measuring the number of page views as a key performance indicator (KPI), is a growing practice among publishers. In fact, editorial and development teams are increasingly being rewarded for boosting page views, with some publishers even shaping their entire site just to generate page views.That is not a business model! Let me prove it with an extreme example.Any publisher can deploy bots to generate page views for their site. No advertiser will pay for those page views, because the page views have no advertising value. While page views could be used as a KPI by the editorial team to generate more content for bot consumption, no revenue is coming through the door to keep them employed.last_img read more

A New Approach at Working Mother Sparks Record Digital Growth

first_imgWorking Mother’s new digital strategy appears to resonating with its audience; according to data from Omniture, its website saw an 84 percent increase page views in August compared to the same month a year ago, and a 155 percent increase in unique visitors.Meredith BodgasThe magazine’s success falls under the leadership of newly appointed editor-in-chief Meredith Bodgas (pictured), who started her position late last year.Since Bodgas took over, May 2017 was the site’s most successful month ever in terms of both page views and uniques, June and July 2017 were its most successful June and July on record, and the brand followed up with an August that saw its third-highest monthly traffic ever.Bodgas, a working mother and women’s service magazine veteran, tells Folio: that the brand’s content strategy centers on focusing on what readers, comprised mainly of working moms, want to read and share on social platforms. “We look at the data,” she says. “We’re looking at what they’re engaging with—not just what they clicked, but what they share and like.”Despite overlap, she emphasized that the magazine’s audience differs in print and online, which significantly impacts her approach on each platform.Digitally, the brand attracts a younger audience. As a result of the limited time many working moms have available, much of the online content is brief and concise, often including humor pieces, stories of validation, and photo gallery round-ups. In contrast, the print magazine, published four times a year, mainly features service-focused content.“Online, we don’t feature deep dive stories because we know working moms have limited time,” says Bodgas. “In the magazine, we’re giving readers advice on how to make the most of their job, and we share relatable essays that make moms feel less alone in their choices.”As for the print magazine (Working Mother claims a circulation of 200,000), the upcoming October/November cover features CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota, formerly of Fox News.Bodgas says spotlighting Camerota felt like a logical choice because of her openness as a working mother, and that despite her celebrity status, her experiences are relatable.Since leaving Fox News, Camerota has been public about being sexually and emotionally harassed by Roger Ailes, the late Fox News executive.“Alisyn as our cover star is so right for working mom because she has three children and a ton of fresh advice,” Bodgas says. “She was very candid about being sexually harassed by Roger Ailes, and had this genius way of explaining it to her kids so that they are able understand and learn from it.”Bodgas notes the potential for children to find out about issues like sexual harassment from social media, and that Camerota had valuable insight on handling that kind of tricky situation.“She’s really an expert and had such amazing advice to give, as well as being so nice and easy to talk to,” Bodgas adds. “She gave such good tips on how to explain difficult and modern topics to kids.”Looking ahead, Bodgas says she will continue to be “glued to the data” when it comes to the future of Working Mother.“The readers dictate our coverage, if they’re not liking something, we’ll constantly need to evolve,” she says. “We need to understand that it can change at any moment, and I’m hoping we find out and tweak the strategy appropriately.”Additionally, she says that the site will be updated by the end of the year, complete with newer colors, making it easier to navigate.“We’re unique in that we’re the only magazine and website, really, for career committed mothers,” says Bodgas. “We’re always going to speak to the working mom as both an employee and a parent.”last_img read more

GHMC to use drones to kill mosquitoes and larvae in Hyderabad

first_imgThe Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has geared up to spray anti-larval chemicals in the lakes and to kill mosquitoes and larvae using drones. On Friday, the officials sprayed second round of chemicals on Gurunatham lake marking it as formal inauguration in the presence of Mayor Bonthu Ram Mohan. The GHMC has taken the move after they successfully sprayed the chemicals on Gurunatham lake in Miyapur for the first time using drones in March this year. And the same will be repeated across all the lakes, except which are under beautification work, said D Hari Chandana, Additional Commissioner (Lakes) and Serilingampally Zonal Commissioner. The drone has carried about eight to nine litres of chemical earlier and now it is modified and can carry 16 to 17 litres of chemical. It has been developed by enthusiasts at T-Hub. The technique has been introduced to reduce manpower.last_img read more

Arizona Sees Swell in Number of AfricanAmerican Candidates

first_imgBy Melissa DanielThe Associated PressAt least 30 African Americans are running for offices in Arizona this year, a milestone that some political observers say is a result of increased engagement and a new pipeline of leadership.State Rep. Reginald Bolding is one of two African-American lawmakers currently serving in Arizona’s 90-person state Legislature. He and other political watchers say more African-American candidates are running compared to past cycles — and it presents the opportunity to more than double the number of African Americans in the Legislature.Kevin Del Palacio, second from right, a Democrat running for the Arizona House of Representatives, speaks during an African-American candidates forum along with Democrat mayoral candidate Tim Seay, left, Justice of the Peace candidate Sharon Sauls, second from left, and Democrat candidate for Arizona Corporation Commission Kiana Maria Sears, right, Aug. 8 in Phoenix. They join at least 30 African-Americans running for local, state and federal office in Arizona this year. (AP Photo/Ross D. Franklin)“I think a culmination of what’s happening nationally, and what’s happening locally, has really inspired people to say that this is a new day and a new era for African-American leadership,” Bolding said, citing the successes of President Barack Obama, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker and California Sen. Kamala Harris.African Americans make up about 4 percent of the population in Arizona, a state once noted in the late 1980s for its refusal to enact the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. In 1992, voters approved a ballot initiative creating the holiday.Tuesday’s Arizona primary finds African-American candidates running for seats on school boards, city councils and other local offices. Flagstaff Mayor Coral Evans is running for re-election, and at least four people are vying for Justice of the Peace seats.In the state Legislature, Bolding and state Rep. Geraldine Peten are seeking re-election.Four Democrats and one Republican are seeking to join them in the state Legislature. On the federal level, Democrat Garrick McFadden is in three-way primary for Arizona’s 6th Congressional District that covers eastern suburbs in Maricopa County.“You have African Americans running all throughout the state of Arizona, not just south Phoenix where you’ve historically had African-Americans running,” Bolding said.Arizona has a population of about 7 million people, but only about 287,000, or 4 percent, are Black, according to 2016 data from the American Community Survey. The state’s Native American population is comparable at 296,000. About 2 million residents are Hispanic or Latino and 3.8 million are White, the data shows.Bolding said African Americans in Arizona have become increasingly engaged in political issues in the state over the past several years. He pointed to many people of color who canvassed for the minimum wage ballot initiative that passed last year, and those who have supported bond overrides in school districts.Marcus Ferrell is one of seven candidates in a competitive Democratic primary for a state House seat representing parts of Phoenix and Scottsdale. Almost half the residents are people of color, but Ferrell says a person of color has never represented the seat.Ferrell, who was the national African-American outreach director for Sen. Bernie Sanders during his presidential campaign, said it’s increasingly important to mobilize communities of color and run more diverse candidates as the state changes demographics.“If it’s going to hurt a marginalized community, you can guarantee it’s going to affect Black people in Arizona,” he said. “If cuts are made to a program, you can guarantee it’s going to hit the Black community.”Kiana Sears, a statewide candidate who is running for one of two seats on the Arizona Corporation Commission, joined Ferrell and four other African-American candidates at a forum in early August. She told the group one of her top priorities is helping to ensure Arizona increases its renewable energy portfolio, citing higher rates of asthma among African-American children. The commission regulates electric utilities, water companies, railroad safety and securities.Sears says she was the first African American elected to the school board of the state’s largest school district in Mesa. She hopes that her statewide candidacy can inspire others to run for office, regardless of their background.“I don’t want to be that anomaly. I don’t want to be that unique,” she said. “After I’ve run and more have come along, I can say ‘Oh, when we talk about that first, I was the first of the next 20 who are now sitting in those positions.’”The majority of African Americans running for office are Democrats. State Democrat chair Felecia Rotellini says the party has worked to reach out to communities of color across the state by locating offices in communities like south Phoenix, south Tucson and Nogales.“I believe that’s one of our greatest advantages as a party, that we are so inclusive that everybody has a voice,” she said.In the Republican primaries, Walter Blackman, a military veteran, is seeking a state House seat in a rural district. If elected in November, Blackman said he believes he’ll be the first Black Republican elected into the Arizona House.As a Black conservative, he said he’s received criticism from Democrats over his support for Republican President Donald Trump — including once when he wore a “Make America Great Again” hat.“It’s disheartening, being a Black American, when I get treated poorly because of what I believe and my principals,” he said.Blackman grew up in a military family and says he’s held onto conservative values throughout his life. Blackman said he was motivated to seek office in Arizona as a way to continue his public service and provide strong leadership for his community.“I believe everyone wants their family safe, they want their kids to have a good education, and you want to live in a community that’s safe,” he said. “I don’t think it really matters if there’s an ‘R’ or a ‘D’ behind your name.”last_img read more

Physicists model how we form opinions

first_img Explore further Examining common myths about IQ Secondly, changing the connectivity parameter affects how quickly the system transitions from the segregated state to the intermixed state. For the same laggard parameter, a system with higher connectivity (10 or more connections in the model) creates a sharper transition from a segregated society to a mixed society. Systems with lower connectivity take longer to intermingle, and may never completely mix, as the system could stop evolving after fewer iterations.Because social ties fluctuate, the researchers also modified their model by randomly rewiring the connections after the system reached its final update. This rewiring represents how individuals lose and make new friends and acquaintances, resulting in a more realistic model. Overall, the researchers explain that a society’s public opinion can form one of two scenarios: segregated or coexistence of differences. But, as the team explains, even segregated societies can be versatile, with clusters of different groups – just as long as they aren’t forced to interact too much.“Our model predicts that the formation of consensus depends on how actively an issue is under debate, especially if the original sets of opinions are balanced, i.e. there is roughly the same amount of people sharing each of the two opinions,” Thurner explained. “This is, of course, the most interesting case. In societies where debate is encouraged, a group of people is more likely to find consensus on a topic than, say, in a society where active discussions are not appreciated, suppressed or even forbidden.”As the researchers explain, the model could be used as a tool to make statistical predictions in real-life scenarios.“In principle, all our model parameters can be determined in real life,” Thurner said. “Presently, large efforts are made by dozens of groups to map social networks. The outcome of these efforts can be straight forwardly taken as an input to our model. The nature of social influence that individuals exert on each other (in the model this is the laggard parameter), can be assessed through polls, behavioral surveys, etc. “However, predictions of our model are of statistical nature, and results predict most likely outcomes,” he added. “Predicting the outcome of a specific election can be compared to playing poker. Just from knowing that I hold an above average hand there is no guarantee that I will actually win this round.”More information: Klimek, P., Lambiotte, R., and Thurner, S. “Opinion formation in laggard societies.“ Europhysics Letters 82 (2008) 28008.

In large part, a society’s image stems from its overall opinions – its political, religious, and ethical beliefs – and how much diversity it tolerates. For example, how do some areas develop images of being either liberal or conservative, and, in others, liberals and conservatives live side by side? Citation: Physicists model how we form opinions (2008, April 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-04-physicists-opinions.htmlcenter_img The model updates the state of a node (individual) depending on the fraction of the states of its neighbors. In this case, that fraction (“laggard parameter”) is 80%. In (a), the central node keeps its original state. In (b), the central node is updated since 80% of its neighbors are in the opposite state. Credit: P. Klimek, et al. As a team of researchers explains, our individual opinions both influence and are influenced by our surroundings. By following a set of rules, the researchers have modeled the opinion formation process in societies where individuals’ opinions are strongly influenced by others they interact with. The scientists found that, depending on two criteria – how strongly individuals are influenced by each other and how many connections individuals have – a society’s overall state can exhibit either large segregated patches of consensus, or areas with closely intermingled opinions.Peter Klimek from the Medical University of Vienna, Renaud Lambiotte from the University of Liege and the Catholic University of Louvain in Belgium, and Stefan Thurner of the Medical University of Vienna and the Santa Fe Institute in the US have published their study in a recent issue of Europhysics Letters.In their model, individuals are represented as nodes in a network. The nodes are binary, and they display an individual’s opinion on some subject, such as yes/no, liberal/conservative, Clinton/Obama, or any other choice. Then, the society’s overall stance on a subject can be determined for the future by evolving the system. First, an algorithm checks the state of all nodes connected to the node in question. If the fraction of the state of neighboring nodes exceeds a certain threshold (which the researchers call the “laggard parameter” and must be above 50%), then the central node adopts that state. If not, the node remains in its original state. This process is iterated several times, until it can no longer be updated, and the society freezes.“The original opinions of the individuals are ‘a priori’ inclinations toward some subject,” Thurner told PhysOrg.com. “To stay within the Clinton/Obama example, although most of my peers may be democrats, some of them may consider political experience to be more important, while others think that a fresh start is needed. Given such individual initial dispositions, our work shows under which circumstances individuals will stick to them or change their mind.”Depending on the laggard parameter and the system’s average connectivity, the model produces societies with different features. For example, as the laggard parameter increases (when individuals require a greater fraction of neighbors holding the opposite opinion in order to change their opinions), the regions of consensus shrink, and the society’s diverse views intermingle. In other words, individuals stubbornly hold on to their opinions, even if many of their neighbors have the opposite view. But the more that people are influenced by others, the less likely it is that the society will ever reach such an intermixed state. This document is subject to copyright.

Not Made in the USA

first_img 7 min read Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. June 7, 2007 Register Now »center_img The telephone, TV, light bulb, airplane, automobile, air conditioner, microwave oven and even that pull tab on soda and beer cans were created and developed in the United States.That’s why it’s somewhat disappointing when we see amazing products in the rest of the world that haven’t made their way yet to America. After all, we shared what we made. So why aren’t we getting some of the cool, unique and interesting things available elsewhere that we could be using to improve our personal lives and businesses?There are several reasons. Many companies would rather release their products in their own country and then expand to other corners of the globe. But because the profit margins in America are slimmer and the patent laws more complex, some companies decide not to release items here at all. Meanwhile, many companies–even from the United States–have been releasing their products to South Korea first. The South Korean government made a conscious decision to become the most wired nation on the planet and serves as an incubator where businesses can work out bugs before introducing a product to the rest of the world.Whatever the reason, check out our list of 10 hi-tech products that haven’t yet made it to the United States–but hopefully will someday.Technological marvel: The AstrataWhere you can find it: Singapore and IndonesiaWhat it does: This technology tracks the movement and location of cars, trucks and motorcycles in real time. Right about now, you’re probably checking the date of this article to see if it was written in 1987, long before the GPS revolution. But what’s so different about the Astrata is that people in the control room tracking the movements of these vehicles can literally stop them in their tracks–even if they’re in a tunnel. If you’re a truck driver, worried that the money, fuel or other precious goods you’re carrying may be vehicle-jacked, fret no longer. The rest of us can just keep our fingers crossed.Technological marvel: Identification cards for tobacco vending machinesWhere you can find it: JapanWhat it does: If you’re an adult smoker, you can use the ID card as a debit card to pay for your cancer sticks electronically. But if you’re underage–younger than 20 in Japan–it actually hampers your cigarette-purchasing efforts. By the end of 2008, more than 600,000 cigarette vending machines will be installed with an electronic age-verification device. If you’re a concerned parent, or you want one of these machines in your stores, who do you beg to bring it over here? You might want to try the Japanese company, NTT Data, which worked with a group of companies to create the concept that allows transaction details to be transmitted wirelessly from the vending machine to a central system.Technological marvel: Mikimoto Bean i-theaterWhere you can find it: JapanWhat it does: You can hook these video glasses weighing less than 3 ounces into your iPod for a complete theater-like experience. Because you’re looking at two screens, you get the sense that you’re watching a 50-inch plasma screen. They come with stereo headphones and can run for more than six hours on one charge, so in one sitting you could watch about half of the Star Wars series.Technological marvel: Reborg-Q Security RobotWhere you can find it: JapanWhat it does: This security system debuted late last year at the AquaCity shopping mall in Tokyo. It’s programmed to automatically patrol a set course through a mall. Alternatively, a security guard can control it remotely from afar. The robot knows how to enter an elevator and travel to the next floor. In fact, the robot knows quite a few things. If there’s a fire, it can use a fire extinguisher; if customers want to know the time or the weather, the robot can tell them, as well as pitch sales going on in the store; if a lost child has been found, the robot can display that information on a screen located on its chest. It can even stand at an entranceway and check employee IDs. By the end of the year, the Reborg-Q should be at 10 locations around Japan.Technological marvel: Drive assistWhere you can find it: GermanyWhat it does: For the last decade or so, it’s been a familiar drill. You go to some map software, print out a map with directions and take it with you in the car. It beats the old foldout road maps, so we don’t complain. But you may start griping. BMW and Google Maps have aligned themselves to create Drive Assist. You look up an address at your personal computer using Google Maps and then e-mail the map to your car’s GPS system. So there’s no printing out a map and then typing in the address once you get in the car–at least not in Germany.Technological marvel: SeniconWhere you can find it: Various airports in Japan, Switzerland, China and LaosWhat it does: Anyone who travels knows you can’t take your bottled water on an airplane anymore. Authorities became understandably nervous there might be a clear chemical explosive in it after a terrorist plot hatched in England was foiled last summer. Senicon was developed to detect such liquid explosive threats. You set your bottle of cola or water on the device, and electromagnetic waves can instantly detect flammable or explosive liquids contained in glass or plastic bottles. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is reviewing Senicon, but knowing the way bureaucracy works, it may be a while.Technological marvel: Braun self-setting watchWhere you can find it: EuropeWhat it does: It’s one of life’s little annoyances: You’re traveling from one time zone to another, daylight-saving time kicks in, or your watch battery simply runs out. You struggle with the small knob to reset your watch, inevitably setting you back a minute or two, which you have to take into account. Maybe it’s not the worst problem in the world, but if you’re in Europe, you never have to worry about it again if you have the AW200 Braun. It’s a regular two-handed watch, except that with the press of a button, a radio signal will reset your watch to Frankfurt, Germany time, which is standard European time.Technological marvel: Mobile walletWhere you can find it: South KoreaWhat it does: Ever wish you could use your cell phone like a wallet? We do practically everything else with it. Now, companies like China Mobile, Samsung, AT&T and MasterCard have been working together to come up with one global standard for all cell phones, so that we can stroll up to a wireless reader, wave our phone over it and automatically buy anything. It gives an entirely new meaning to the concept of the impulse buy.Technological marvel: Hydromassage TV bathtubWhere you can find it: EnglandWhat it does: Even without the TV, it sounds great. The tub has air massage and water massage jets designed to soothe aching muscles, as well as a headrest, but what really makes it seem like the perfect American product is the 8.5-inch LCD screen with video input at the other end. You can watch a DVD, HBO or CNN while soaking in the tub.Technological marvel: Shoeshine robotWhere you can find it: South KoreaWhat it does: While America may not be clamoring for a shoeshine robot, you have to feel a little envious that South Korea has one. You stick your shoe in–one at a time, while it’s still on your foot–into a machine that looks like a giant robotic shoe. In about two minutes, you’ll have a cleaner shoe. It’s perfect for politicians or anyone else who’s constantly sticking their feet in their mouth. It’s also ideal for anyone who wishes the 21st century looked a little more like what we were promised when we were watching The Jetsons.Wishing you could buy some of these products that aren’t yet in America, but don’t have the money for a plane ticket? There are at least two American companies that specialize in selling products you can’t find in the United States. Check out www.dynamism.com and www.icube.us.

Argentine commuter train derailment injures 31

first_img(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Emergency medical director Alberto Crescenti said six people were hospitalized with multiple injuries, although none seemed critical, and 25 others were treated at the scene.The wreck happened on the first workday of a subway shutdown that began Friday night. Union workers are pressing for wage hikes to make up for inflation, and the national and capital governments have blamed each other for the impasse. Just before the train wreck, Mayor Mauricio Macri’s cabinet chief said 500 buses were being mobilized to provide free service along subway lines.Monday’s wreck was the worst since February, when a commuter train on the Sarmiento line slammed into the Once station, killing 51 people and injuring more than 700.That accident prompted President Cristina Fernandez to fire her transportation minister, reshuffle her Cabinet and end the concession for both the Sarmiento and Mitre lines that had been granted to the Trains of Buenos Aires company, which repeatedly failed safety requirements since taking over a third of the capital’s commuter rail system during the 1990s privatization era.Both lines have been run since May by a joint venture operated by the capital’s two other rail companies, Emepa y Roggio. Argentine Interior Minister Florencio Randazzo, now also overseeing transportation, has been preparing a plan for a major investment in commuter rail improvements.

The car swung off the rails and slammed into a huge railway signal tower, which then fell onto the train. Panicked passengers fled into the rail yard.

first_imgOf the three straight teams head coach Bruce Arians has fielded with double-digit wins, the 2015 Cardinals are best suited for a deep postseason run, thanks to a balanced offense, excellent deep passing game and defense that excels at forcing turnovers.Marvez had previously given the Cardinals a ‘B’ in the first quarter and a ‘B+’ at midseason.The Cardinals boast the league’s top offense, averaging 419.5 yards and 31.8 points per game. Their defense ranks fourth overall, yielding an average of 316.8 yards per contest. Arizona is the only team in the league to be ranked in the top five in both total offense and total defense.The Denver Broncos and Cincinnati Bengals also earned ‘A’ grades at the three-quarter mark, while the New England Patriots got an ‘A-‘.The undefeated Carolina Panthers were the only team to get a mark of ‘A+’.In what may be a much more telling sign of the league this season, Marvez gave 10 teams an overall third-quarter grade of ‘D’ or worse, with the Cleveland Browns, San Diego Chargers and Tennessee Titans all earning ‘Fs’. – / 24 There’s no two ways about it — the Arizona Cardinals have been one of the NFL’s best and most consistent teams in 2015.Currently riding a six-game winning streak that includes impressive wins over the Seattle Seahawks and Cincinnati Bengals, Bruce Arians’ team sits at 10-2 and has a comfortable three-game lead in the NFC West with just four regular-season games remaining.Alex Marvez of Fox Sports handed out his third-quarter NFL report cards the Cardinals are one of five teams to earn an ‘A’ for the session.

Said, “About to tee off shortly, that’s on my mind right now.” Obviously https://t.co/3fkdo0R61Y— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 29, 2018According to Warner, how successful Fitzgerald believes the team can be is one of the bigger factors in the wide receiver’s decision. “I think he feels like he can still do it,” Warner said. “But I know he wants to win a championship and compete for a championship.”Former head coach Bruce Arians and Warner have the same feeling that Fitzgerald will return under the right circumstances.“I think Larry will do the right thing for him,” Warner said. “I think if he feels like it’s a great situation to succeed and be a part of this new regime, then he’ll be back.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling LISTEN: Kurt Warner, NFL Network analyst and Cardinals great Warner has sensed a different tone when talking to Fitzgerald about possibly retiring this offseason compared to years in the past.“There were times where I got more of a sense that I got that he was leaning towards maybe not coming back,” Warner said. “Last couple of times I’ve talked, I really feel like he wants to come back and play this season and he’s more committed to it. But that was before all the changes that took place.”Despite the recent offseason changes, Warner believes that Fitzgerald will take a step back and evaluate the team.“I think he’s probably sitting back and going, ‘OK, let me meet (head coach) Steve Wilks, let me meet (offensive coordinator) Mike McCoy, let me see what happens at the quarterback position before I finalize this,’” Warner said. “But I get the feeling that he is going to come back.” Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald walks off the field following the team’s NFL football game against the Seattle Seahawks, Sunday, Dec. 31, 2017, in Seattle.

New York New York – Reported by Elite Traveler t

first_imgNew York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle MagazineThe Plaza Hotel has announced the launch of the one-of-a-kind Eloise Suite, designed by celebrated fashion designer Betsey Johnson.Channeling the ebullient spirit of The Plaza’s most famous “resident,” Eloise, the irreverent and irrepressible fictional heroine of Kay Thompson’s classic book who scribbled her way into the hearts of generations of readers, Johnson has designed an exclusive Eloise Suite that blends luxury and whimsy for a charmingly original result.Like The Plaza itself, Eloise defined New York in 1955 when her book was first published. “Each day, our colleagues share Eloise’s adventures with guests from all over the world and she is such a beloved character,” said The Plaza’s General Manager Shane Krige. “Collaborating with a visionary of style and design like Betsey Johnson to bring Eloise’s world to life has been so rewarding and we feel she is the ideal talent for this project,” he added.As is only fitting for New York’s quintessential “city child,” Eloise’s suite is located on the 18th floor and is comprised of two rooms–one for erstwhile young Eloises and one for their parents–and Johnson’s design captures it all. The Suite is resplendently rendered in an Eloise-approved palette of pink and black, and a signature Plaza chandelier fitted with pink bulbs casts a rosy glow throughout. Wall panels are candy-striped with pink and white and outlined with gold leaf molding, providing a striking contrast to the black and white zebra-print carpet.When guests are tired they can sink into a king-size bed made with custom-designed bedding: A bedspread sprigged with scenes drawn by “Eloise” illustrator, Hilary Knight, depicting the hapless heroine scampering around The Plaza, a charming print that makes an appearance on the bow tied curtains, too. Accent pillows are sheathed in shams patterned with custom “Betseyville Rose” and “Betsey Rosebud” prints. The padded pink headboard sparkles with “trinkles,” and is surmounted by the crowning touch: Eloise’s name scrawled in neon lights and affixed to the wall above.Original Hilary Knight prints adorn the walls, and the Suite is equipped with a disposable Eloise camera so that guests may snap photos of their stay, then tuck them into the “memory board,” a glass-topped mirror just right for storing images of guests both past and present. Betsey Johnson kicked this tradition off herself by taking the very first photo.The Plaza has appointed an Eloise Ambassador to assist guests in booking a stay in the Eloise Suite. Upon arrival, the Eloise Ambassador will escort guests to the Suite where they will sign the official guest book and have their photo taken. The photo will be framed and given to the guest at turndown. Rates for the Eloise Suite start at $995/night and include a monogrammed Eloise bathrobe, a $100 gift card to the Eloise shop, an Eloise camera, a framed photo of the guest inside the suite and an Eloise book. Guests also have the option to book an adjoining “grown-up” Edwardian Suite, which includes champagne and truffles. Rates start at $2045/night for the two-bedroom option.www.fairmont.com/theplazalast_img read more

Cyprus plays a key role in blockchain progress

first_imgNiki NikolaouNiki Nikolaou, Business Director at leading Limassol based agency Contentworks, looks at how Blockchain technology is shaping the island of Cyprus.Blockchain technology was introduced in 2008, by Satoshi Nakamoto, an anonymous developer who created the technology as the accounting basis for Bitcoin. Of course, the technology has come a long way over the past decade, proving itself to be an effective way for individual, businesses and even governments to carry out transactions. Created as a digital, decentralised and immutable public ledger of transactions, the greatest advantage that blockchain offers is the ability to customise it to record transactions and the transparency it affords.Some of the key industries that are effectively applying this include healthcare, technology and even real estate. Blockchain appears promising, with potential applications for almost every sphere of life.Cyprus is becoming a blockchain hubGiven its strategic geographical location, Cyprus has long been a financial hub for Europe, in which the country’s tax system, with the absence of double taxation, has had a role to play. However, the country fell victim to a debt crisis in 2013 and a ‘hair cut’ to bank accounts, which impacted its status as a key destination for the financial sector. What this crisis did was pave the way for the easy acceptance of new technologies, including blockchain and cryptocurrency. This was the time when people were looking for alternative ways to store their funds. It was also a time for entrepreneurs to step up to the table.With a now stable economy, positive government stance on digital currency and infrastructure for the growth of talent in this arena, Cyprus is possibly the best place for blockchain projects. Not only does the University of Nicosia offer world class courses in blockchain and cryptocurrencies, it hosts student clubs as well. And, the university accepts payment in both digital and fiat currencies. Cyprus International Institute of Management also regularly hosts lectures and seminars on blockchain-based topics.Today, the country is a haven for pioneering blockchain startups, aided by its decentralised economy. Blockchain has also proven incredibly effective as a means of fundraising for deserving technology projects and Cyprus has played a key role in this aspect of blockchain as well. One of the key services that such startups require is publicity for their project and being able to reach out to the right audiences for investment.
