Share Compete Caribbean Guest Speaker, Courtney Oliver LindsayThirty-nine participants have successfully completed the 2019 Customs Brokerage course.Completion of this course, funded by the Government of Dominica and Compete Caribbean, permits participants access to the automated system for customs data (ASYCUDA) world system to conduct business with the Customs and Excise Division.Compete Caribbean is a multi-donor facility designed to support Caribbean islands for increased productivity and is a means for Caribbean firms to contribute to economic growth.At the closing ceremony on Friday 20th December 2019, Courtney Oliver Lindsay of Compete Caribbean encouraged the participants to put their knowledge into practice for Dominica’s trade development.“If you just get the training or you sit in the training and go back to work and its business as usual, then the country won’t get the benefit. So for that we have three challenges for you: the number one challenge is to use what you have learnt in the training. Because as I said, for the country to see increased, improved and more efficient trade facilitation, you will have to apply this training to your work daily,” Lindsay advised.His second challenge was to form a Customs Brokers and Tariff Clerks Association expressing that, “this would really help to develop the level of professionalism in the industry and the sector as a whole.”He also encouraged the Customs and Excise Division to widely disseminate relevant information from the ASYCUDA to stakeholders.Lindsay urged, “ASYCUDA is one of those platforms which produces a lot of information and rich data and we are asking the division to, when you have this data, don’t just keep it or use it collectively to show trade facilitation and what is happening in the country.“That is good, but to also share that data with individual companies, individual customs brokers, so they can look at it and see the performance, not just at the higher level but their individual level as well. And to share with each individual company and to let them know how they are performing and where they are falling short so that they can step up their game and improve their work processes.”At the end of the ceremony on Friday, the participants reported that the course was useful and expressed determination to apply their newly acquired knowledge to work.The Training was conducted by Claude Paul (Lead trainer), Irvine Phillip (HS Classification), Mervin Anthony (Customs Procedures), Brinder Green- Charles (ASYCUDA), Timothy Thomas (Technical Support), and Kayode Ducrey (Technical Support).The Participants are as Follows:BrokerageCarmanthia AntoineChanette StuartCurlysia WalshDania EmanuelGaron DucreyGenelle TaverniereKaihil CharlesKathyann CharlesLester FregisteLucia Antoine-LaurentMagdelene FergusMarinka JosephMighan SmithNasio CoipelNinette GeorgeOdera BaronRaleighson PascalRicardo ElwinRoyette LaurentSandy Joseph LockhartTessa AlexanderTevin AntoineTimaeus GarrawayTriston BarobTyron DeschampsVernicia SeamanManifestBeyounca JamesCheston ClarkeIttha MatthewJulius CarriereJennifer AirdKaestel EtinofeMarie Ellisa TongueRhoda St. JohnRonalda EdwardsTyron Benjamin Share Sharing is caring!

It took a little intentional foul help down the stretch, but Keystone broke that barrier for a season high point total in their 81-68 win over Buckeye.

Danny Flood and Pat Midea led a charge that pulled Buckeye within a point midway through the second.

Concept vehicles for Uber’s flying taxi project. Image: Uber A surprising seven out of 10 travelers would be willing to fly in an autonomous aircraft during their lifetime, a new survey says.But before pilots start looking for a career change, the survey of more than 22,000 people across 11 markets found a much lower proportion — 58 percent —would be willing to board a self-flying plane in the next decade.Aircraft manufacturers are investigating autonomous aircraft but say it will be many years before commercial airline pilots join the endangered list.Likely to be quicker to market are companies such as Uber with piloted and then autonomous small aircraft operating as flying taxis.READ: Uber to conduct air taxi trials in Melbourne.What the ANSYS Global Autonomous Vehicle Study suggests is that people may not be as averse to the flying without a pilot as many assumed.Even so, younger people are more willing to take the risk on the concept than older — and possibly wiser — heads.More than 80 percent of 18-to 24 -year-olds said they were willing to fly autonomously compared to just 45 percent of those aged 65 or older.And there were concerns across all age groups with technology failure (65 percent) and how an autopilot would respond to external conditions such as turbulence (57 percent).Surprisingly, 71 percent of respondents had no fears about a safe take-off without a pilot and 76 percent were unconcerned about an autonomous landing.Less than 10 percent were aware of the extent to which planes are currently flown on autopilot and, when told only the first and last 10 minutes of most recent flight was controlled by a pilot, 36 percent said they would feel safer on an autonomous plane.On the danger of a fully computerized plane being hacked, 39 percent believed it would be harder than compromising bank accounts, smartphones, computers and self-driving cars.Urban commuter options such as a flying taxis were supported by 63 percent of respondents.“Autonomous aircraft are likely to enter service over the next decade, targeting both intra-city and inter-city travel, primarily used in air freight and air taxi business models,’’ said Frost & Sullivan senior research analyst Priyanka Chimakurthi,“Further automation in large commercial jets will be gradual, first starting with single-pilot operations, followed by fully autonomous operations.“Undoubtedly, automation will continue to transform air transport, as it has done over the past few decades. However, it will have to overcome numerous challenges, starting with passenger perception, practical constraints as well as battery and propulsion technologies.”The online survey of 22,041 adults was conducted in the United Kingdom, United States, DACH, France, Italy, Spain, Benelux, Sweden, Japan, China and India between April 26 and May 7, 2019.
Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#business#web Along with the increasing internationalization ofthe Web, comes the language challenge. China is obviously a key Web and businessmarket going forward, so there is currently a lot of interest in learning Mandarin. Asone solution to this, Ken Carroll recently contacted me to tell me about ChinesePod – the site he co-founded a year ago toteach Mandarin over the Web. He told me that ChinesePod uses podcasting, RSS, blogging –and other Web 2 technologies – to teach Mandarin Chinese, which he described as “anemerging lingua franca”.Ken told me that ChinesePod has exploded in popularity over the past year – it’s hadapproximately 10 million lesson downloads and currently occupies a prominent position inplaces like Yahoo Podcasts.Visiting the ChinesePod site is a pleasure,as it is very well designed and a visual treat. And the business model is surprisinglysimple – subscriptions to language-learning materials. This complements the freeofferings – basically, the Mandarin podcasts – very nicely. For example, if you want todive into learning Mandarin straight away: select one of the episodes, plus you canparticipate in the discussions. The first level subscription is called ‘Basic’ and getsyou a PDF transcript of the podcast. If you want get really serious about learningMandarin, sign up to the premium subscription service and receive learning resources suchas Review Materials and Lesson Plans. I think ChinesePod beautifully illustrates how you can run a small, niche – butsuccessful and moneymaking – business on the Web. ChinesePod offers enough free materialto make it worthwhile for the casual visitor, but offers real value too if you’re willingto pay a subscription fee for tools and resources that help you learn Mandarin.Thecommunity aspect of ChinesePod also shows what can be done with read/write Webtechnologies. Check out the Communitypage – which has a forum, wiki, blogs, photos, rss feeds. All the usual pieces, butwhat I like about it is that each has a practical purpose. The wiki has extralinks and information, the forum is well-used by users, the photos are lovely (of China),and there are a lot of great rss feeds to choose from.Unfortunately I don’t have time to learn Mandarin right now, but if I did ChinesePodwould be my first port of call. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… richard macmanus Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting
Retailers have generally accepted the necessity for data and analytics in their organizations. Using loss prevention analytics the right way can boost profits and reduce losses. However, the constant deluge of information sometimes makes it difficult to identify which loss prevention analytics are important and actionable and which can be discarded.In a feature article in the March–April 2017 issue of LP Magazine, author Stan Welch, LPC, takes a closer look at this conundrum alongside key LP thought leaders: Rick Beardsley, director of loss prevention, safety, and risk management at At Home; Gregg Smith, senior director of asset protection at Five Below; and Scott Ziter, director of asset protection at Price Chopper.The conversation begins with the ways in which LP departments handled exception reporting and other labor-intensive processes before the introduction of useful loss prevention analytics. Then the discussion turns to the new ways the industry is using data and analytics. From the article:- Sponsor – The first thing the At Home team noticed about their new data analytics solution was how light it was on their IT department. “The biggest challenge was getting the IT group to move up the priority of our project. They provided us with their requirements and set a limit on man-hours to be spent,” said Beardsley. Thanks to the simplicity of the solution’s infrastructure and the help of the support staff, “we were able to get the system up and running three months ahead of projections,” he added.Ziter and Smith both had similar stories, and once the solution was up and running in all three organizations, the impact was instant. “Our team became far more efficient at identifying and correcting issues,” noted Ziter. The ability to easily create complex queries and develop personalized reports had a big impact on their team’s performance. Ziter also added, “The new solution allows us to focus on resolving root causes of loss, not just individual cases.”As the article points out, data and loss prevention analytics aren’t just buzzwords. They provide concrete benefits for loss prevention professionals.

The qualifiers are over and all eyes are now on the final day of F1 action at the Buddh International Circuit in Greater Noida. Before the action starts, here is a look at the drivers who are headed for Grand Prix glory.Sebastian VettelIt is difficult to look beyond the two-time world champion, who starts in pole position for the 13th time out of 17 races this season.Vettel’s dominance has been reminiscent of Michael Schumacher’s glory years with Ferrari, with the Red Bull car being superior to all their rivals’. The combination has already wrapped up the drivers’ and constructors’ championships, but their hunger for success just doesn’t diminish.At the technically demanding Buddh International Circuit, Red Bull-Renault’s strength in aerodynamics should stand them in good stead. Sebastian Vettel has been consistently quick through the practice and qualifying sessions, and has showcased his smooth driving style, which is necessary at this circuit because of its dusty nature.A marginal mistake can cost a driver valuable seconds if he slips off the racing line, and Vettel has the edge over his competitors in that department as well.The only thing that could stop him from winning the race, apart from luck, is the fact that both Red Bull and Vettel have expressed a desire to concentrate their efforts on helping teammate Mark Webber clinch second place in the championship.Jenson ButtonBut for Vettel, this Briton could easily have been the driver of the season for a few of his storming drives. He has won three races – in Canada, Hungary and Japan – and has an equal number of second and third places as well.advertisementThe race in Canada proved beyond doubt that Jenson Button’s championship win in 2009 was not all down to the then-dominant Brawn GP car he drove. Button had to make five pitstops, got run into by his McLaren teammate Hamilton, sustained a puncture, served a drivethrough penalty, made 26 on-track passes and then overtook Vettel on the last lap to win the longest race in history.Since then, especially during races at the quicker circuits like Spa (Belgium), Monza (Italy) and Suzuka (Japan), he has looked the likeliest man to cut through the field, and has done so with his smooth-as-silk driving style, which helps conserve tyres for longer stints too.He said on Thursday that he likes the look of the Buddh International Circuit, which promises multiple overtaking opportunities in every lap, unlike some of its other modern counterparts.Expect Button, who starts fourth, to pounce on the Red Bulls at the first opportunity. He might even create the opportunity himself, like he did by putting pressure on Vettel in Canada.Mark WebberThe Australian veteran says he wouldn’t accept any help from his team in gunning for second place in the drivers’ championship. That speaks volumes about the man who has played second fiddle to Vettel this season, after having come close to the title in 2010 but lost out to Vettel.Despite having a similar car to the world champion, Mark Webber just has two second places and seven third placed-finishes this year. He has a total of 209 points from 16 races, and is 13 points behind McLaren’s Button, who is second on the table.In India, though, Webber has been a strong presence in all the sessions. Though still seemingly lacking the outright pace of a Vettel or a Hamilton, he has been consistently improving his lap times, resulting in a third place in Saturday’s session. A grid penalty to Hamilton has shot him to the front row, though on the ‘dirty’ or nonracing line side of the track.If he can overcome that on the run down to the first corner and leapfrog Vettel, the race could well be sewn up.Fernando AlonsoLet’s face it – this Spaniard isn’t the force he once was, when he was defeating big names like Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen to the world title in 2005 and 2006.Yet, for some, he remains the most naturally gifted driver in the world, whose two-year-old alliance with the most famous team in the world, Ferrari, hasn’t yet borne fruit.Alonso Fernado won the British Grand Prix in the middle of the year and finished second and third three times each this season. He lies 10 points behind Button in the battle for second place in the drivers’ championship, and needs just a bit more out of his scarlet car.Perhaps it was pushing hard that made him suffer a blown engine in the first practice session in Greater Noida on Friday, though the pace of the Ferraris has been better here than at other circuits in the recent past. Teammate Felipe Massa did top the second practice session, but one issue for the famous Prancing Horses is the seemingly low ride-height of their cars, which is causing the front wing to scrape along the undulating circuit.advertisementAlonso remains one of the fastest drivers off the grid in Formula One, and with the track being very wide in places, it could provide him the ideal opportunity to revert to his aggressive driving style and win the battle fair and square. If only his Ferrari holds up.Lewis HamiltonIf it hadn’t been for a moment on Friday, when he seemed to ignore yellow flags and set his fastest lap time during practice, Briton Lewis Hamilton wouldn’t have been in this section. Instead, a three-place grid penalty has pushed him down from second to fifth for the start in Sunday’s race.But for the F1 ‘bad boy’, it has just been that sort of season. Hardly a race has gone by where he hasn’t been under the stewards’ scanner, mostly for his over-the-top aggression which has led to crashes involving other drivers.It’s not as though Hamilton isn’t capable of driving in a sane manner while going blindingly fast. He proved that in Korea where he stayed subdued, but ended up with the first non-Red Bull pole position of the season and a drive to second place, losing a spot to Vettel. There is also the added emotional low of his break-up with singer Nicole Scherzinger, and Hamilton would be keen to put all that behind him and focus on the track.Expect the 2008 world champion to be a factor in the eventual outcome of the race.
