September 24 and 25 Most Deadly for Road Crashes

first_imgRelatedSeptember 24 and 25 Most Deadly for Road Crashes September 24 and 25 Most Deadly for Road Crashes UncategorizedOctober 19, 2007 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Road Safety Unit has said that the two-day period of September 24 and 25 was the most deadly in Jamaica in terms of road crashes since the start of the year.According to the Unit, the deaths could have been prevented had the drivers been more cautious on the roadways.“Within 24 hours, Jamaica witnessed 10 private motor vehicle passengers killed as a result of wanton carelessness on the part of drivers, who were engaged in speeding and improper overtaking manoeuvres,” said Statistician at the Unit, Kenute Hare, while speaking with JIS News.The two crashes occurred in St. Catherine along the Guanaboa Vale Main Road and Highway 2000.Speeding was the primary reason for the death of six private motor vehicle passengers along Highway 2000, while improper overtaking led to the crash that killed four passengers along the Guanaboa Vale Main Road.In the Highway 2000 accident, Mr. Hare said that the wet road condition was also a factor. “This wet surface means that if the motorists fail(ed) to adjust to the road condition, which in this case could have been to reduce speed, their vehicle would be susceptible to hydroplaning,” explained Mr. Hare.Hydroplaning occurs when a vehicle glides uncontrollably on a film of water and can result when speeding on a wet surface or driving with worn tyres.According to the Unit both vehicles were also overloaded. “There were eight persons in the car, which was licenced to carry five in the Guanaboa Vale incident and seven persons in the car involved in the Highway 2000 incident,” Mr. Hare told JIS News.The drivers of both vehicles survived. The average age of the drivers is 29 years old, while the ages of the passengers were evenly distributed among the various age groups. Seven of the persons who died were females.In the meantime, the Unit also reported that private motor vehicle passenger deaths in multiple crashes have increased astronomically from two in 2006 to 15 at present. Public passenger vehicle deaths have however, decreased by 80 per cent when compared with the similar period for last year. Since the start of the year, seven multiple crashes have occurred leaving 31 persons dead.

Our goal is to play in the playoffs. We got a shot next week at all of that.”San Francisco earned the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs with a 26-21 victory at Seattle.

All three teams had a chance at the playoffs, but Tennessee had the easiest path by needing to win — and got it against a Texans squad that rested several starters, including quarterback Deshaun Watson.“I think it’s great when you can determine whether you get to continue to play football,” Titans coach Mike Vrabel said. “There was some great effort, but we’re going to have to improve and play better. Everything gets harder from here on out.”The last time New England played on wild-card weekend, it lost at home to the Ravens. The Patriots have never made it to the Super Bowl with Brady and coach Bill Belichick while playing in the opening round.“We’ve got to move forward and get ready to go or the end of our season will be next week if we don’t turn the page and play good football, way better than today,” McCourty said. “Nobody feels sorry for the Patriots not getting a first-round bye in the playoffs.”Meanwhile, the Chiefs (12-4) are the No. 2 seed and will be able to watch the opening round, along with the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens (14-2).Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (15) celebrates following an NFL football game against the Los Angeles Chargers in Kansas City, Mo., Sunday, Dec. 29, 2019.

It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored In a briefing paper released March 14, Global Witness accused ten companies from the EU of importing timber harvested illegally from the DRC.Industrie Forestiere du Congo (IFCO) logged outside of its approved operational area in a remote DRC forest, the watchdog group said.According to Global Witness, the IFCO acquired the concession from company owners or shareholders whose identities have not yet been confirmed. Ten European companies have been accused of importing illegally-harvested timber from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) by Global Witness. The watchdog group said earlier this month that the timber was brought to market by a company called Industrie Forestiere du Congo (IFCO), which operates in a densely-forested, remote area of the central African country.“[The report] shows that certain companies based in the EU are probably not doing adequate due diligence to screen out any potentially illegal timber from their supply chains,” said Colin Robertson, a campaigner with Global Witness. “Secondly it points to a weak enforcement in some EU member states of the [European Union Timber Regulation].”The report provides satellite and other evidence that suggests IFCO harvested timber outside the boundaries of the area it was approved to operate in, which “directly contravenes DRC forest law and the company’s own management plan.”In addition, the report cites a letter written by Congolese authorities in Tshuapa province, where IFCO’s concession lies, ordering the company to suspend its operations for more than six months in 2018. According to evidence presented by Global Witness, IFCO did not comply with the order, and logs harvested during that period may have wound up in EU markets.IFCO is a major player in the DRC’s timber industry, with clients in countries across the EU, including France, Spain, and Italy. Between June and October 2018, the company brought logs into the EU that had a market value of around 2 million euros. According to Robertson, that timber was an expensive good that may have been used to make high-end furniture or flooring.“It’s very much a luxury product, and it retails for very high prices,” he said.The rainforest in the DRC. Image via Flickr.IFCO controls two concessions in the DRC, including one that the report lists as an area the size of Luxembourg. The company has only owned the concession since early 2018, when it was acquired from another logging company called Cotrefor, which was previously called Trans-M. According to the report, the largest shareholder in Trans-M was a Lebanese businessman named Ahmed Tajideen. Three members of Tajideen’s family have previously been placed on a terrorism sanctions list by the U.S. Treasury, due to alleged links to the Hezbollah militia group.The report describes how after Trans-M changed its name to Cotrefor, a representative of the company denied ongoing links to Tajideen. However, most of the Trans-M staff remained, and many are now employed by IFCO.“We don’t know who the owners or shareholders of IFCO are,” Robertson said, adding that EU buyers of the company’s timber should ask it to disclose that information.The report also alleges that IFCO has not been following sustainability principles that should mark areas that were logged within the past 25 years as off-limits, which would give them a chance to regenerate. While not technically a violation of DRC laws, the failure to adhere to the company’s management plan is an indication that its operations are potentially more environmentally harmful than it has led buyers to believe.Rainforest in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Photo courtesy of A.P.E.S. database“The Congo Basin is one of the most climate critical forest on earth,” Robertson said. “It’s the second-largest rainforest, it’s home to incredible biodiversity, and it supports the livelihoods of millions of people. It’s also one of the most remote places on earth where sometimes governance or oversight of the behavior of companies is weak.”The report calls on companies in the EU to cease purchasing timber from IFCO until they can verify that its operations are in compliance with the EU Timber Regulation. In addition, it urges the government of the DRC to investigate any illegal harvesting of logs by IFCO outside of its agreed-upon boundaries, and to sanction the company if it is found to have violated its management plan.While IFCO itself hasn’t responded publicly to the report, on March 21 the company published a statement in French from the Congo-based Federation of Wood Manufacturers on its website. It called the allegations “defamatory.” The statement denied that logs were harvested from off-limits areas and asserted that IFCO and Cotrefor are “distinct entities.”Banner image: The landscape of Garamba National Park in DRC.

Business Intelligence: Legacy Systems Obstruct UK MoD’s Supply Chain

first_imgToday’s modern military depends increasingly on technology, technology for weapons, but also technology to manage business intelligence and the supply chain.A report from the UK’s National Audit Office (NAO) finds that military technology has been a weak link in military campaigns that the UK has been involved with in Afghanistan.  Technology changes at a blistering pace, and many of the UK’s Military of Defense (MoD) IT systems have been frozen in time.  The report notes that the MoD’s supply chain to manage the storage and distribution of materials and supplies “falls short of general logistics industry best practice.”The report highlights areas considered to be problems:Old systems lacking many features now standard with newer softwarePoor quality and accuracy of dataSystems are often incomplete and data is incompatible between themA large amount of MoD supply chain data is maintained in IT systems that are 30 years old.  The rerport notes that “these systems have limited capability and the scope to upgrade their capabilities is often extremely restricted, and many are no longer supported. Reliance on such systems means that it is very challenging to produce the business information required by stakeholders to run an effective and efficient supply chain.”A single item passing through the MoD supply chain may need to be referenced by up to four different IT legacy systems.  Relating data on that item between the systems is a manual process.The report notes that the MoD supply chain system has reached the point where the risk of catastrophic failure is very high, the failure of which could have a major negative impact on the ability to successfully support the war effort.The findings of the report are a bit of a black eye for IBM.  The IBM Cognos BI software is core to much of the system.  The report faults insufficient data being populated into the system and also the fact that the software was not as effective as it should be, commenting that “the Cognos tool does not always pick up the correct data when producing reports.”last_img read more

Cloud Computing: IT Departments Take on Role of Facilitator

first_imgA report from CompTIA finds that use of the cloud by businesses is increasing.  80 percent of companies are using some form of cloud computing and half of those say that they’ll increase their investment in the cloud by more than 10 percent in 2012.  Despite initial resistance to the cloud, IT managers are now instead enthusiastically embracing it.   85 percent of IT managers said that they feel positive about the benefits of cloud computing.  That’s an increase from 72 percent in 2011.Subscription pricing and easy sign-ups to cloud services have allowed many departments to end-run their IT groups.  But this wild west behavior seems to be getting more under control.  IT is increasingly becoming more of a facilitator for identifying and procuring technology, and the CompTIA report finds that now typically IT groups are are still decision makers or able to provide input on technology purchases before the final decision is made.  IT is still typically involved in creating policy around technology use, particularly in the area of security of company data and use of mobile devices.Seth Robinson, director, technology analysis at CompTIA, said that “What’s significant here is not so much the usage of cloud, that’s the same trend line as before.  But there are some underlying transformations in the way they procure IT solutions and the way they operate with IT in a cloud environment… Internal IT departments also are on the edge of major transformation.  The option for cloud solutions for various parts of the computing stack is opening the doors for IT professionals to perform new tasks, or at least perform old tasks in new ways. It’s also creating new job roles and functions to more tightly integrate IT teams with lines of business.”last_img read more
