first_imgBirmingham: Jonny Bairstow knows how to channelise his anger but he doesn’t intend to change anything about his misinterpreted statement as its value after 24 hours is that of “fish and chip” paper. Bairstow was quoted in the British media as saying that “critics want to see them lose” and some are paid for the job. It was widely reported that the statement was aimed at two former skippers Michael Vaughan and Kevin Pietersen. The opener, who is known for his plain-speaking, answered with a hundred against India and then ripped the media apart.

To read how it was taken was very disappointing,” Bairstow said during an interaction at the mixed zone. “But there’s nothing you can change about the past…yesterday’s news is today’s fish and chip paper, that’s the saying isn’t it,” he added.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — A judge has refused to approve an agreement between coastal officials and the owners of a stretch of Southern California coastline that would allow very limited access to beaches.Santa Barbara County Superior Court Judge Colleen Sterne ruled last week that the public’s interest was not fully represented in the agreement over access to the 22-square mile (57-square-kilometre) Hollister Ranch, where wealthy homeowners live on houses on a limited number of large lots with stunning ocean views, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.The settlement was signed last year by the California State Coastal Conservancy and the state Coastal Commission on one side and the Hollister Ranch Owners Association on the other.It would limit access to those who could boat or paddle 2 miles (3.2 kilometres) to reach it, to visitors with guides, the ranch’s landowners and their guests.The ruling does not reject the settlement, but establishes a path for opponents to have it thrown out. Next steps could include a lawsuit against the state for failing to include a public process prior to making this deal with Hollister.The agreement was reached behind closed doors and generated public outrage last year after the Times published the terms. The outcry became a flashpoint in the mounting pressure on state officials to ensure that California’s beaches are open to everyone.The judge’s decision is a major victory for coastal advocates who are calling on officials to fight harder against ranch homeowners and give greater public access to some of California’s most coveted beaches and surf breaks.Sterne, in her ruling Friday, acknowledged “substantial opposition on behalf of the absent but affected public interest.”Hollister Ranch has 8.5 miles (13.6 kilometres) of beaches, a 2.2-mile-long (3.5-kilometre) shoreline preserve and 136 privately owned parcels.___Information from: Los Angeles Times, Associated Press read more

Log in or register to post comments Enterprises implement new technology for lots of reasons… to save time or money, gain a competitive advantage, or just to keep up, to name a few. One of the common underlying threads to all these motivations is automation — and it deserves more attention. Automation technology enables individuals, teams, and organizations to do more with less, or at least more with the same amount of resources. It’s something we don’t often discuss directly. No one wants to implement new technology to reduce staff, as that can make people defensive. Make no mistake about it, if a technology can do more with less (or the same amount) of resources (people, money, time), it’s a winner. We tend to address this in code, such as saying new technology will free up staff to do more important things — great, if it’s true. For example, Walmart’s 360 new floor-scrubbing robots aren’t about layoffs. Instead, the company says the robots will free up time for employees to perform other tasks. That seems unlikely, but maybe.Automation does impact jobs — just don’t say it out loud. Automation isn’t a new concept, either. While warehouse robots are new, they’re effectively replacing conveyor belts, which aren’t new. We’re surrounded by automation that most of us don’t even notice. The climate control in the car automates the previously manual adjustments between heating and cooling. Our alarm clocks automatically ensure we are awake at a desired time.Automation is emerging as the key driver for upgrades and improvements in enterprise communications. The technology is providing a tremendous opportunity to do more with less in a sector that has resisted automation.This is critical because we’re communicating more, and in more ways than ever before. Think about that. Fifty years ago, phones were an executive perk. Twenty years ago, intra-company communications were primarily dependent on mail delivery carts pushed through the corridors. Typical knowledge workers today are regularly interacting, day and night, on multiple devices wherever they happen to be. According to a recent study by the Radicati Group, we sent and received 269 billion emails globally each day in 2017. And the forecast is 333 billion in 2021. We need automation not just to administer this, but to manage it. Fortunately, we have spam and virus detection automation, but what about our other communication channels? Notifications are a form of automation, but they actually contribute to the communications maelstrom. We need tools that do more for us, with less (or the same) resources. Fortunately, several technologies, including artificial intelligence (AI), are automating aspects of communications and collaboration. For example, auto-framing is improving the experience of many video solutions. It offers a more engaging conference with less effort. It allows participants to focus on each other instead of the technology. Here are some more specific examples of automated solutions in communications:Dialpad Talk listens in on all calls and creates a written transcript with action items, which it stores in the call log and/or integrated external applications. Avaya supports triggers that initiate communication workflows. Triggers are customized for specific use cases that can initiate a workflow based on external events such as news event, stock price drop, or even a tweet.  These workflows can include actions such as messaging and initiating calls or conferences. They can react to additional inputs, and automatically escalate if warranted. Cisco Webex simplifies meetings by providing users ad-hoc flexibility in using a personal device or room solution. Webex uses an ultrasonic-pairing technology that automatically moves a meeting to the user’s preferred device. Starfish Software offers a variety of automated technologies for UC and contact center administration. In one shared scenario, its software scans incoming service tickets. It can automatically open a ticket, can verify authorization, resolve the request, and close the ticket without any human intervention. Microsoft Teams uses automation to complete several otherwise manual steps for sharing recorded content. A meeting can be recorded, transcribed, translated, indexed for search, uploaded for recording, and securely made available for playback to participants. These examples show how automation can impact communications today for users and administrators. And the trend is growing. Automation was the driving force behind Slack’s recent acquisition of Missions and, last week’s acquisition of Slope by SmartSheet.  Automation doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing proposition. In some cases, it makes sense to set up automation that is manually initiated. The goal is to reduce manual processes that take more time, have more variation, and cost more money. Not to mention, automation in communications and collaboration can free up staff to do more important things. This is the year that that we look beyond features and UI, and prioritize doing more with less (or the same) in communications and collaboration. Dave Michels is a Contributing Editor and Analyst at TalkingPointz. automation.jpg Tracking the Evolution of Genesys’ Kate Sheila McGee-Smith June 17, 2019 From concept to platform to generally available intelligent virtual assistant 7 Things to Consider When Choosing a Virtual Agent Abed Farhan June 19, 2019 With the right solution, issues such as password resets can be resolved without involving human agents.

BOSTON — Rick Middleton raised his No. 16 to the TD Garden rafters Thursday night, nearly three decades after playing his final game with the Bruins.Middleton, nicknamed “Nifty,” spent 12 seasons with the black and gold from 1976 to 1988, scoring 402 goals and totalling 898 points. The right wing ranks third in goals and fourth in points in Bruins history.“I’ve had four months to think about it, and I hate repeating myself, but honestly, I believe it is the biggest honour that certainly a retired athlete can get in his career,” the 64-year-old Middleton said before the Bruins faced the New York Islanders.The Bruins announced in July that Middleton’s number would be the 11th retired by the team, the first since longtime forward and current Bruins president Cam Neely’s No. 8 was hoisted to the rafters in 2004.In all, 19 players have worn No. 16 for the Bruins — including centre Derek Sanderson, who Middleton said he wore the number in honour of. Kaspars Daugavins was the last to wear it in 2013.“In the last six or seven years, I’ve been seeing that it’s not out there; nobody’s wearing it,” Middleton said. “All of a sudden, it happened. In July, a phone call in July; I never thought it would ever happen that way, but I just have to thank Cam so much for doing it. … It culminated tonight.”Middleton was joined by Neely, Ray Bourque, Johnny Bucyk and Terry O’Reilly — whose numbers have all been retired by the Bruins — along with former Bruins coach Don Cherry at centre ice for the pregame ceremony.A first-round draft pick of the Rangers in 1973, Middleton played his first two seasons in New York before being traded to the Bruins.The three-time All-Star led the Bruins in goals for six consecutive seasons from 1978-84. He scored a career-high 51 times in the 1981-82 season, the same year he took home the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy.Middleton holds the NHL record for most points in a playoff series, totalling 19 (five goals, 14 assists) in a 1982-83 second-round series against the Buffalo Sabres.___More NHL hockey: and Coolbaugh, The Associated Press read more

first_imgVale’s 2008 Sustainability Report shows the company to be a leader in the efficient use of water resources in mining. Its 2008 Sustainability Report shows the company continues to make significant progress in environmental, social and economic management. One of the positive results noted in the document is higher reuse of water resources. Of the 1.37 billion m3 of water consumed by Vale in 2008, 1.03 billion m3, or 76%, came from recirculation and reuse projects in various locations, including operations acquired in Australia in 2007, which entered the sustainability report for the first time in 2008. The latest percentage represents a significant improvement on the 65% registered in 2007. In the 2008 Sustainability Report, which follows the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) methodology, Vale increased its level of transparency in disclosing information, describing 73 environmental, social and economic indicators – 22 more than in 2007, when the company first adopted the GRI model. As in the previous year’s report, the 2008 document complies with ‘G3′, the latest version of GRI guidelines, and is classified as B+, on a scale from C to A+. The document underwent an external verification, conducted by consulting firm KPMG Assurance Services.“This publication reaffirms our commitment to the transparency of our activities and to improving our internal management of sustainability,” said Vale’s CEO, Roger Agnelli. “In 2008, we received recognition as a company committed to transparent communications – our 2007 Sustainability Report was highlighted as a ‘Notable Communications on Progress’ (COP) publication by the United Nations Global Compact, which shows we are on the right track.”Vale’s Sustainable Development Policy, issued in January 2009, according to the company, strengthens its alignment with international initiatives in which it participates, such as the United Nations Global Compact and the International Council on Mining & Metals, a global forum on sustainability in the sector. Its sustainability strategy is based on three pillars: operating sustainably, catalysing local development, and acting as a global agent for sustainability.One of the key global challenges for Vale’s Sustainable Development Policy is climate change. In 2008, the company’s greenhouse gas emissions stood at 15.2 Mt of CO2 equivalent – 10% higher than in 2007. This increase was mainly due to the incorporation of Vale Australia units and improvements to the emission calculations methodology.Last year, the company launched its corporate guidelines on climate change and carbon, including the Vale Carbon Program, which is carrying out a series of globally co-ordinated projects. These include a project to replace fuel oil with natural gas in pelletising plants in Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais, which cut emissions by 126,073 t of CO2 equivalent between 2007 and 2008, and a project to capture methane to generate electricity in its operations at Integra underground mine in New South Wales, Australia. Besides reducing greenhouse gas emissions, the plant is able to generate 10 MW of electricity, enough to supply 15,000 homes.Of all the electricity purchased by Vale (indirect electricity), 76% comes from hydroelectric sources. In Brazil, the company is investing heavily in power generation, mainly large hydroelectric projects through consortia (seven plants are operating and one – Estreito – is being built), and also small hydro projects. Vale directly produces 34% of its own electricity needs.The company has also been investing in natural gas and biodiesel to replace diesel and fuel oil in its operations. In February, it launched the Green Train project, which aims to use a blend of natural gas and diesel in its locomotives, with from 50% to 70% natural gas. The project is under trials on the Vitória-Minas Railway. It is estimated that using natural gas on the Vitória-Minas Railway and the Carajás Railway will cut emissions of CO2 equivalent by 66,211 t/y.Also this year, Vale signed an agreement with Biopalma da Amazônia to produce biodiesel from palm oil, which is ten times more productive than soy. The plan is to use B20 (a blend of 20% biodiesel and 80% regular diesel) on the Carajás Railway and in other operations in Vale’s North System, starting in 2014, far in advance of government regulations that mandate its use in 2020. Vale currently uses B3 in its trains.Vale invested $678 million in environmental projects in 2008, 50% up on 2007. Most of this was spent on acquiring and installing environmental control equipment, environmental maintenance and geotechnical safety of dams and slag heaps, and reforestation and restoration of degraded areas.last_img read more

first_imgDeilmann-Haniel Mining Systems GmbH (dhms), the German manufacturer of mining, shaft sinking and tunnelling equipment, recently opened a new branch office in Moravian-Silesia in the Czech Republic, reflecting the importance of that market to the group. The dhms facility in the František industrial zone in Horní Suchá in the Ostrava region was built on the premises of a former mine and won the Czech industry ministry’s 2010 ‘Brownfield of the Year’ award. The branch opened for business in February 2012 after the company, which has its production facilities and headquarters in Dortmund, Germany, decided to move closer to a strategically important customer in the coal industry. dhms representatives say that opening the facility close to the major customer “is strategically important as it offers further development opportunities.” Image Archive OKD“Currently, around 42 machines – roadheaders, drill jumbos, loaders and dinter loaders are operated in these mines. It is logical that we want to ensure our cooperation efficient, economical and comfortable; hence, we have to be as close as possible to our customer. In our service facility in Horní Suchá we are able to do almost complete overhauls, service and revision operations. We don’t have to ship the entire machine back to Germany, which, of course, makes a positive impact on cost efficiency,” said Michael Wasik, Manager of the Czech branch of dhms. Having a branch office so close to a major customer enables dhms to shorten reaction times, do quicker repair and refurbishment jobs and to generally provide the client with optimum service. dhms provides a 24 hours/7 days service to cover customer needs.With a response time of four hours at any time of day, resolving any issues that may have emerged or replacing a damaged part from stock. These mines in Moravian-Silesia were the first to use the new dhms roadheader R75. “These machines fit the bill when highly efficient roadheaders are requested in order to achieve good daily advance rates together with high support quality and comparatively reduced man power consumption” said Wasik, adding that the very demanding geological conditions in the mines provide the best testing environment for the new technology.last_img read more

first_imgThe High Court’s decision, in May 2015, agreeing with the BBC to cap pensionable salary is a comforting result for employers that intend to take similar action to curb defined benefit (DB) pension liabilities.The BBC took the decision to introduce a 1% cap on increases to pensionable pay to its three DB schemes to cut its pension liabilities. But the approach that it took to implement the change, requiring members to accept the cap or receive no pay rise, or alternatively to cease accrual of their final salary benefits, was significant.It led to an appeal that was lodged by scheme member and employee of the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra John Bradbury, who took his claim to the Pensions Ombudsman in 2011 on the grounds, that in good faith, his pensionable salary was his basic salary.However, the Ombudsman found that it was open to the multimedia organisation to determine that only part of Bradbury’s basic pay was pensionable and it dismissed the case, and the employee appealed to the High Court.In the High Court’s latest ruling on 15 May 2015, it rejected the claims by Bradbury’s appeal that the broadcaster breached its duty and pressured employees into accepting its pension changes, and therefore dismissed the appeal.High Court judge Mr Justice Warren said: “It would require a very strong case indeed for a number of disparate objections [even though they arise out of the same conduct] to give rise, when taken together, to a breach of the implied duties when none of the objections itself gives rise to such a breach.”The initial High Court ruling in 2012 had held that a binding agreement was formed if an active member of a scheme accepted a pay rise on the grounds that only part of it would be pensionable.It also found that the Ombudsman had not properly considered the relationship of trust and confidence between the BBC and the employee, with the case referred back to the Ombudsman in 2013.The Pensions Ombudsman again dismissed the claim that the BBC had breached its terms, trust and confidence.Bradbury’s overarching submission was that the Pensions Ombudsman had wrongly failed to engage with the argument that, “taken overall, the conduct of the BBC was in breach of the implied duties in particular because of the mechanism and methodology that it used to achieve what it did and its alleged failure to consult”.The latest dismissal of the appeal brings welcome news for employers that have capped pensionable salary within a final salary scheme, or are considering doing so. Alison Brown, global head of practice, employment, pensions and incentives at law firm Herbert Smith Freehills, said: “The decision will give comfort to employers that enter into contractual arrangements with employees to cap future liabilities to the pension scheme, particularly against the backdrop of increasing deficits in defined benefit schemes.“There is more to come, however, on the issue of the employer’s duty of good faith in IBM V Dalgleish. The court’s decision on whether to allow an appeal in that case, and on which issues, is expected soon.”last_img read more

first_imgAfter a brief positive opening on Wednesday, Indian equity markets erased most of its early gains to trade at marginal losses on profit booking by traders. Positive global cues, like rising US equities, didn’t have much impact on Indian investors’ sentiments.Key market benchmark Sensex was trading marginally lower at 25,930.73 points, down 0.12 percent at 10.40 am. Similarly, 50 share index Nifty was down 0.16 percent at 7,990.05 in the initial trade.Shares of HDFC were one of the major losers and were trading 2.87 percent lower on Wednesday. Other companies like BPCL, Wipro, Power Grid Corporation and Maruti Suzuki were also trading in the red.However, stocks of L&T, Hindalco, Asian Paints, Tata Steel and Tata Motors bucked the trend and saw buying from investors.Among sectors, capital goods, metals, healthcare and consumer durables were supporting the market indices, while bank index was pulling the market down.Market breadth remained positive with mid-cap and small-cap indices gaining on early trade. There were a total of 1,300 advances and 739 declines at National Stock Exchange.With continuing cash crunch faced by businesses owing to demonetisation, analysts have opined that some small and medium enterprises (SMEs) could wind up businesses as they might not be able to cope up in the new environment.Similarly, earnings growth of Indian firms for third and fourth quarter has already been slashed by brokerages putting pressure on stock prices.Globally, Wall Street’s record run continued on hopes of fiscal policies of US President-elect Donald Trump. This pushed Asian markets on a higher trajectory.On rupee front, the Indian currency was up 0.30 percent at 68.30 per dollar in the early morning trade.last_img read more

first_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ The Cardinals won 17-13.“Obviously, I’m disappointed about the loss,” Bradford said. “I thought I handled some things well, didn’t handle some things well.”The Cardinals opened the next season against 2011’s top pick, Cam Newton, and he had a little more success than Bradford the prior season.OK, a lot more success.Newton completed 24-of-37 passes for a hearty 422 yards, tossing a pair of touchdowns and just one interception. He also ran for 18 yards and a score, making his day one for the record books. The Cardinals left with a 28-21 win, as their own rookie (Patrick Peterson) returned a fourth-quarter punt 89 yards for the score. “He was on point, he made some great runs, he made some great reads, made some fantastic throws,” Panthers receiver Steve Smith said of his QB. “He made some throws out there that honestly as a receiver it made it easy to catch them.”So what should the Cardinals expect from Wilson? Well, unlike the previous two rookies they opened against, the Seahawks’ starter was not the first pick in the draft. Still, the third-round pick out of Wisconsin earned the starting gig by completing 40-of-63 passes for 536 yards and five touchdowns in the preseason, so he’s not lacking for ability. Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation He is lacking in height, though, and many feel he will struggle standing just a shade under 5-foot-11. But with mobility and a knack for making plays, it’s likely Wilson will cause the Cardinals — and any other defense he faces — some problems. Though if history is any indication, the Cardinals should still get the W this Sunday.
