Virgin Trains USA launching IPO developing passenger lines

ORLANDO, Fla. — A passenger rail company that is connecting South Florida with Orlando is planning a public offering of common stock that the company is valuing at more than $500 million.Virgin Trains USA Inc. said Wednesday it was offering more than 28 million shares of common stock priced at between $17 and $19 a share. The shares will be listed on the Nasdaq exchange.The company formerly known as Brightline launched service between Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach last May. It plans to expand into Orlando and Tampa.The company also plans to construct a rail system connecting Las Vegas and Southern California.The company estimates that 6.6 million passengers annually will use the train service between South Florida and Orlando once it is built out, and another 2.9 million passengers annually will use it between Orlando and Tampa.Brightline partnered last year with Richard Branson’s Virgin Group. Brightline took the Virgin name and Virgin took a minority interest in the company.After the offering, Virgin Trains USA will continue to be majority-owned indirectly by funds managed by an affiliate of global investment manager Fortress, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.Last year, then-Gov. Rick Scott disclosed that he and his wife had invested in a fund run by Fortress. Scott, who was elected to the U.S. Senate last November, killed a major publicly-financed high speed rail project in his first year in office as governor.The Associated Press read more

Sri Lanka wants more time to sign mine ban treaty

Sri Lanka has said it will need more time to sign the Mine Ban Treaty (MBT) also known as the Ottawa Convention.It will take 15 more years to de-mine Sri Lanka’s war-battered North and East regions, a group campaigning to ban anti-personal mines in the country said on Tuesday while criticising the Government for not acceding to the Ottawa Convention. He said that the Government inaction on accession to the Mine Ban Treaty (MBT) and Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) will seriously undermine ongoing reconciliation in the country.“This will be particularly important when the government has declared a week of national reconciliation in January. Today there are over 160 state parties to the MBT and around 120 state parties to the CCM,” he said. “The de-mining work has slowed down over the years. At its current pace it will take around 15 years to complete the de-mining in the remaining 44 square kilometers,” Vidya Abhayagunawardena, the national co-ordinator of Sri Lanka Campaign to Ban Landmines (SLCBL) said. After seven years of end of war with the LTTE, Sri Lanka remains the only country in the world to maintain that it’s military installations should continue to be protected with landmines, he said. In March this year, the Cabinet had decided to accede to the MBT but no action was taken due to opposition within the Government as it had been pointed out that the military bases should be protected by landmines.“During the war and the last stage of the war in Sri Lanka, landmines never helped any party to win the war. Now we can see that post-war Sri Lanka’s mine causalities 99.9 per cent are civilians particularly children and women,” Abhayagunawardena said.“There is no connection to reconciliation and our not becoming a party to the MBT,” Karunasena Hettiarachchi, a top official of defence ministry said. Sri Lanka would enter it after alternate arrangements are put in place to secure the military camps, Hettiarachchi said. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Making UC Accessible for All

See All in Unified Communications » The Future of Accessibility in UCAs these examples show, making UC apps accessible can help revolutionize the ways in which people are able to access technology, tearing down barriers to adoption among those with disabilities. No doubt we’ll see even more providers enter the ring with their own solutions to the accessibility conundrum, while providers like Microsoft, Zoom, and Cisco continue to enhance and build upon their existing solutions. Microsoft offers Seeing AI, a free app that recognizes facial expressions, physical movements, and reads documents. Saquib Shaikh, a Microsoft software engineer who is blind, designed the app. sctcperspective_Small.png How to Get Rid of Your Fax Machines… Finally Dan Aylward September 11, 2019 Many organizations still rely on faxing to secure and authenticate transmitted documents, but it’s time to move on. With regards to higher education, class websites might include readable fonts and embedded links carrying alternative text for students who use screen readers. Likewise, proper tagging of alternative text, table headings, and structure elements will make PDF files accessible to screen readers. With Webex for Healthcare, for example, Cisco aims to help limit unnecessary travel, provide real-time care for patients, and deliver healthcare training and education through a highly secure, integrated environment while reducing costs. Webex for Healthcare offers virtual team workspaces, a training center, and meeting platform with single sign-on. In recent years, accessibility has become a buzzword in the UC space and, as a result, a number of studies have been carried out to assess the scope of the requirement and different technologies for addressing various impairments. In healthcare, offerings like Zoom for telehealth allow patients to speak with care providers through high-quality video. This solution integrates technology and medical records to keep patients and staff connected and in compliance with federal privacy regulations. Accessibility_774.png How to Choose? Best of Breed vs. Single Solution Elizabeth (Beth) English August 28, 2019 Whether best of breed or single source, an enterprise should consider its needs, regulatory requirements, and other factors before deciding on a UC solution. Telephony and SmartphonesThe smartphone has been a game changer for digital technology, and accessible mobile-friendly websites are just the start. The ability to increase text font and provide the correct color contrast for visual impairment has been invaluable on mobile devices, for example. UC 2.0: The Future of Unified Communications Eran Abramson June 10, 2019 UC is on a positive path, with great promises and capabilities to come. In higher education, students use media players such as Able Player to support closed captions and audio description, enabling users to toggle the narration on and off, with buttons and controls that can be labelled or operated without a mouse. Web accessibility is invaluable everybody, and features and solutions such as these ensure that this can happen. Chatbots and Artificial IntelligenceMany platforms, including Google and a number of other websites and social media apps, are now using pop-up chatbots or conversational bots to aid user experience. This technology has the potential to help those with disabilities, but doesn’t necessarily meet all the requirements. It can take some investment to make AI compatible, but it still has a role to play in accessibility. While currently limited in functionality, in the future, intelligent virtual assistants may be able to master complex tasks such as taking notes, making appointments, and tackling requests based on an understanding of human conversation. Log in or register to post comments In addition, Microsoft offers telehealth and patient apps via its Teams team collaboration solution. Like Cisco does with Webex, withTeams Microsoft offers healthcare templates, including ward and hospital templates, aiming to deliver enhanced communication and collaboration within and between wards, pods, or departments. These are for use in help providing patient care, as well as the operational needs of a healthcare organization. Website AccessibilityMost operations are moving online or developing digital solutions for more traditional methods. In healthcare, for example, a patient can find information, schedule appointments, and receive a diagnosis and recommended treatment, prescriptions, and test results online — from his or her own doctor or a virtual or online practitioner. In addition, healthcare providers can track and monitor at-home patients via the Internet. RIP: Skype for Business Kevin Kieller July 30, 2019 Microsoft sets retirement plan for Skype for Business Online, foreshadowing death of Server edition, too. In terms of higher education, Microsoft has an education suite for Teams that aims to make learning more inclusive. It brings conversations, content, assignments, and apps together in one place and allows collaborative classrooms, learning communities, and communication tools for staff. Open Source’s Role in UC & Networking on the Rise Sorell Slaymaker July 12, 2019 Exploring the impact of the software revolution that’s quietly empowering more open source networking and communications solutions “SCTC Perspectives” is written by members of the Society of Communications Technology Consultants, an international organization of independent information and communications technology professionals serving clients in all business sectors and government worldwide.Tags:News & ViewsAccessibilityUnified CommunicationsConsultant PerspectivesEmployee ExperienceNews & ViewsSCTCVideo Collaboration & A/V Articles You Might Like UC AccessibilityAlongside Zoom, Microsoft and Cisco have been thought leaders in providing both internal and external accessibility solutions. At present, these providers have centered their offerings around the sectors in which issues relating to accessibility are likely to be most pertinent. Virtual digital assistants that can respond to voice-to-text search queries and voice recognition instructions are useful as well. These systems allow those with disabilities to communicate through their phones when they’re not able to input text. Video AccessibilityVideo content is now mainstream, with YouTube reporting that 70% of people access the service on their mobile devices. However, video content is behind the curve on accessibility; more work needs to be done on captioning and transcription to make video content available to all. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that around 25% of the U.S. population has a disability. Whether disabilities are auditory, visual, physical, cognitive, short term or long term they often require affected individuals to receive additional care and attention. Because of this, organizations are feeling an increasing pressure to reassure individuals with disabilities that access to the information they need is available and to set themselves up in such a way as to allow delivery. Mobile apps with the capability to provide solutions to accessibility issues are plentiful. In the healthcare industry, for example, medical information can be organized and stored in an accessible but secure place and can offer 24/7 access to patients and their care providers. Google Classroom is another educational tool that allows multiple people to collaborate on slide presentations in real time and directs users to settings built into Chromebooks, which offer accessibility options that can unlock educational experiences for individuals with diverse needs, abilities, and learning styles. For example, students can use voice typing with Google Docs and teachers can use the commenting feature. Another built-in accessibility feature is ChromeVox, a screen for visual impairment. Accessibility is the term used in reference to individuals with disabilities, including visual impairment, mobility limitation, hearing impairment, and cognitive difficulty. Software and equipment adapted for or to serve such individuals is considered accessible technology. For individuals, accessible technologies can help to improve quality of life, personal dignity, and independence. Support for accessible technologies can lead organizations to overhaul the way in which they operate internally, making them more progressive and cost effective. read more

CV output falls in April but exports keep driving demand in 2017

British CV manufacturing falls 28.3% in April 2017 as the late Easter bank holiday affects production.Year-to-date figures also decline, down 8.1% compared with 2016.Exports continue to account for the majority of production in 2017, up 12.6%. British commercial vehicle (CV) manufacturing declined in April 2017 as the late Easter bank holiday resulted in fewer working days for UK plants, according to figures published today by SMMT.6,132 vans, trucks, buses and coaches were built in Britain last month – a 28.3% drop on the same period in 2016 following very high levels of demand over the past two years and fleet purchasing cycles affecting the timing of monthly production volumes.Year-to-date export figures remain strong, up 12.6% on 2016 and bolstered by a significant boost to the European market.1 The proportion of CVs built for overseas markets reached 64.5% for the first four months of the year, and at 19,087 units, was 12.6% higher than the same period in 2016 and the highest level since 2010.2Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said,With fewer working days in April and following two years of exceptionally strong demand, it’s not surprising to see a decline in CV output, especially when you consider the effect of fleet buying cycles on manufacturing timing. However, as the proportion built for export reaches levels not seen since the start of this decade, it highlights the importance of maintaining good links with our biggest trading partner, Europe. Securing a strong trading relationship will be vital to the continued success of UK CV manufacturing.Notes1 ACEA figures show a 3.8% rise in European CV registrations for January – April 2017.2 In the year-to-date 2010 70.2% of production was for export.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

New surveys let employees have their say

Seeking to learn more about employee engagement and satisfaction, including what makes a contented department tick, the University is embarking on a new era of dialogue intended to take the Brock community’s pulse in terms of personal fulfillment and job interaction.Later this week, Brock’s Human Resources department will ask a randomly-chosen group of full-time faculty and staff to share their thoughts on a range of workplace themes.In a 10-minute questionnaire, respondents can weigh in on topics such as their relationship with their boss, relationships with co-workers, whether they have the resources they need to do good work and if they feel connected to the mission of the University.This dialogue will be done twice a year, each spring and fall, and involve a different collection of participants each time. The goal is to ensure that every employee gets consulted once every year.Tom Dunk, Provost and Vice-President Academic, noted that Brock was named last fall as one of Hamilton-Niagara’s top employers, but “we’re always looking at how we can continue to move forward, and surveys are an effective way to get legitimate feedback.”“Understanding where people have concerns gives us a chance to respond, and to support employees who need it,” said Dunk. “Employee engagement is a measure of someone’s connection to Brock, their level of motivation and satisfaction in their jobs.”Grant Armstrong, Brock’s Associate Vice-President, Human Resources, says employee surveys are “a way to get people’s feedback on a large scale when there isn’t a way to have the one-on-one conversations you would love to have on a regular basis. This is especially important in workplaces that have experienced significant growth.”“People have told me Brock is a great place to work, but Brock has become a big operation, and it’s hard to have those hallway conversations with everyone,” said Armstrong. “It’s important for every employee to have a clear method for giving feedback, just as it’s important for the administration to understand how people are feeling about their jobs and about their relationship with the University.”Brock’s survey is based on successful approaches used at other North American workplaces. Employees respond to questions or statements by using a four-point scale (from strongly-agree to strongly-disagree). There will also be opportunities for people to add comments if they wish.Responses will be collated by select HR staff and by Brock’s Institutional Analysis department, who will look for themes indicating staff concerns or positive feedback. Summaries of the results will be shared with deans or division heads, unions representing Brock staff and with the Board of Trustees.Neil Culp, Director of Organizational Development, said individuals’ anonymity is protected by having people use a web link that accesses a separate template containing the questions.“Protecting peoples’ confidentiality is a very important concern,” said Culp. “We take that very seriously, and are putting appropriate measures into place to protect individual responses.”Culp said this kind of feedback tool is not common at universities, but is increasingly used in other types of workplaces. The idea is to do short but regular inquiries that produce quick analysis and enable employers to respond to concerns in a timely manner.“The quality of the response will depend on the quality of the data we get back. If you get an email inviting you to take the survey, please take a few minutes to complete it, and help the University become a better employer.” read more

We need real change

first_imgLiberal candidate Patrice Pandeleos, who is running in the NSW state elections for the seat of Heffron, believes it’s time for a change. “I know I can make a difference because I understand the people of Heffron and what’s important to them,” Ms Pandeleos told Neos Kosmos.Ms Pandeleos is campaigning on policies including reducing the cost of living, improving transport, public hospitals and schools. “New South Wales needs better public transport and roads so people can take their children to school and get to work on time,” she said. The Australian Labor Party continue to make life difficult for NSW residents, Ms Pandeleos said. “Singles and families are stuck on over-crowded public transport or in traffic jams due to the failure of the Labor government,” she said. “Everybody is working harder and longer hours to try to pay their bills, but Labor is just making it more difficult for them. Electricity and water prices are still going up.” Ms Pandeleos, who is also a passionate advocate for the welfare of animals and the environment, said the Liberal party will improve infrastructure by investing in major projects and establishing infrastructure to ensure it is delivered in the areas of most need, on budget and on time. “No more bungled projects and wasted millions of dollars that NSW can ill afford,” she said.Literacy and numeracy education will be supported with 900 new teachers under a Liberal government, while hospitals will be better managed at a local level with more nurses and reductions in waiting times, Ms Pandeleos said. “Importantly, our community will have a say over the future of our local area,” she said. “As the Liberal Member for Heffron, I will be a real advocate for residents. The electorate wouldn’t be taken for granted. After 15 years of Labor, we need real change.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Facebook to merge WhatsApp Messenger Instagram messaging

first_img Comment Anyway, the summary is: this move could be potentially be good or bad for security/privacy. But given recent history and financial motivations of Facebook, I wouldn’t bet my lunch money on “good”. Now is a great time to start moving important conversations off those services. 9/9— Matthew Green (@matthew_d_green) January 25, 2019 1 Tags GoFundMe fundraises for US government employees, Facebook… CES 2019: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.Everything about Fortnite: What you need to know about the hit game. Integrating Facebook Messenger with WhatsApp and Instagram might also make it harder for government regulators to break up the company, some analysts said.”It ties up the company more rigidly,” said Brian Wieser, an analyst at Pivotal Research Group. “They’re doubling down on the fact that they’re one company. The stakes are higher.” This week, advocacy groups such as the Electronic Privacy Information Center and Color of Change sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission asking regulators to “unwind the acquisition of WhatsApp and Instagram.” The FTC is currently investigating Facebook for allegedly violating an agreement it had with the US government to keep its users’ data private. Facebook is expecting messaging to play a much bigger role in its future. In October, Zuckerberg said a growing number of users are shifting from posting publicly to sharing privately in messaging apps. First published Jan. 25, 8:32 p.m. PTUpdate, Jan. 25, 12 p.m. PT: Adds more background.Update, Jan. 25, 1:12 p.m. PT: Adds quote from Brian Wieser, tweet from Matthew Green and more background. Facebook Instagram WhatsApp Tech Industry Internet Security Facebook plans to make it possible for WhatsApp, Messenger and Instagram users to send messages to one another without switching apps.The three standalone apps will remain separate, but they’ll be brought together under a single messaging platform or protocol. The changes would allow you to send messages from one of the company’s chat systems to another — so you could speak to your Messenger-only friends without leaving WhatsApp.Facebook said it’s still figuring out the details, but the apps would include end-to-end encryption, ensuring that only the participants of a conversation can view the messages being sent. The tech firm, which has faced a series of scandals over data misuse and privacy, plans to finish this work by the end of this year or early 2020, according to The New York Times, citing four people working on the project. “We want to build the best messaging experiences we can; and people want messaging to be fast, simple, reliable and private,” a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. “We’re working on making more of our messaging products end-to-end encrypted and considering ways to make it easier to reach friends and family across networks.”The strategy also highlights how Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is exerting more control over the companies Facebook acquired for billions of dollars. Facebook purchased WhatsApp for $19 billion in 2014 and Instagram for $1 billion in 2012. Some of these founders reportedly have butted heads with Zuckerberg and left the company. That list of departures includes Instagram co-founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger, WhatApp’s Brian Acton and Jan Koum and Oculus co-founders Palmer Luckey and Brendan Iribe. Integrating the apps could help Facebook make more money from ads by getting its users to spend more time texting in its chat apps rather than turning to other texting services by Apple and Google, according to people who spoke to the Times. But the changes might not sit well with some Facebook users, who have become more wary about the data the company shares with other tech firms following a number of scandals. Last year, revelations surfaced that UK political consultancy Cambridge Analytica harvested the data of up to 87 million Facebook users without their permission. It’s unclear what user information will be shared among Facebook Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.Matthew Green, a cryptographer at John Hopkins University, raised concerns on Twitter about the data that could be shared between the apps and whether WhatsApp’s encryption would become less secure. WhatsApp only requires a phone number to sign up for the app while Facebook asks users to verify their identities, the Times pointed out in its report.  Tech Turkeys 2018: So much Facebook!

Rohingya crisis to put biggest security threat to South Asia

first_imgRohingya men waiting for relief. File PhotoPrime minister’s international affairs adviser Gowher Rizvi today said the Rohingya crisis will put the biggest security threat to the South Asian countries in the coming days.“The long-pending Rohingya crisis is now Bangladesh’s problem but it will be the entire world’s problem tomorrow,” he said, addressing the inaugural session of a seminar in the capital as the chief guest.“What is happening in Myanmar? It is something that all countries of the world should be concerned,” the adviser added.Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies (BIISS) arranged the seminar titled ‘Bangladesh-India Cooperation in the Changing Regional and Global Context’ at its auditorium.Gowher said the large migration of Rohingyas from Myanmar to Bangladesh was not the result of some localised, inter-communal or inter-sectarian conflict.“It was deliberate, it was planned, it was genocidal….it was a part of what Myanmar visualises. Myanmar considers itself Buddhist people of Chinese-origin,” he said, adding it think the darker people of Rohingyas are Muslims, not above this.The PM’s adviser said Myanmar has systemically worked over decades to eliminate the Muslim minorities from its soil.“They (Myanmar) have changed their constitution. They have made Rohingyas citizen-less. This did not happen overnight. But, I am saying this coldly plan was genocide and exodus occurred among the minorities in Myanmar,” he said.“Yes, it (Rohingya crisis) is a Bangladesh’s problem today but it will be the entire world’s problem tomorrow,” Dr Gowher said, adding the exodus of the large number of Rohingyas in the borders of Bangladesh and India will also threaten the security of the both countries.“We’ve already noticed weapons are coming in the region. And before long, if we are not careful and internationally we do not work together, this will be the biggest (reason of) instability in the region,” he added.A Rohingya refugee repairs the roof of his shelter at the Balukhali refugee camp in Cox`s Bazar, Bangladesh, on 5 March 2019.

It is a win-win opportunity … At the same time, we cannot stay away from the Belt and Road Initiative because that is also an important opportunity for us,” he said.Taking part in the discussion, director general of the Institute for Defense Studies and Analyses (IDSA), India, ambassador Sujan R Chinoy said the existing bilateral ties between India and Bangladesh is a role model for many other countries.Mentioning that the Indian government wants inclusive economic development not only in India but also in other countries in the region, he hoped that many Indian companies would come to Bangladesh with their investments in the future.Chaired by BIISS chairman ambassador Munshi Faiz Ahmed, the inaugural session of the seminar was also addressed by its director general Maj Gen AKM Abdur Rahman.last_img

Ballygunge 1990 all about love longing and mystery

first_imgSet three decades back in the bylanes of Kolkata’s Ballygunge, a theatre production by director Atul Satya Koushik explores, along with love, longing and loss, a genre under-done in Hindi drama – that of mystery and suspense. The 85-minute play ‘Ballygunge 1990’ attracts with its lead actor, ‘Crime Patrol’ anchor Annup Sonii, but retains audience engagement with its storyline and execution. Annup describes the Hindi play as the “revenge story” of a relationship where his character abandons a lover for ambition and returns years later after failing. Directed without intervals or even a blackout, the play escalates from a seemingly simple love story, to one of crimes, and ultimately vindication. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfHowever, in the Hindi dramatic landscape, one would find plenty of socio-political and mythological themes, but not many thrillers. Koushik himself has debuted in this genre with ‘Ballygunge 1990’, popularly explained as the revenge story of a failed relationship. “Suspense and thriller is not a genre much explored in Indian theatre, especially Hindi theatre. So, I thought of a play which has love in its foreground, undertones of suspense and mystery in the background. The characters are not real, but emotions are real and come from what I see around,” Koushik said. The romantic-thriller play has been produced by the Film and Theatre Society.
