first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The provincial government announced today that twenty new conservation officers were sworn in today in Victoria before beginning their postings this fall throughout B.C., three of whom will be coming to Northeast B.C.Upon successful completion of training, conservation officers will be based in various locations throughout the province, including several in newly-created positions in Chetwynd and Mackenzie. The remaining officers will be filling vacancies in Fort St. John, Prince George, Quesnel, Terrace, Creston, and the Lower Mainland.The hiring of additional conservation officers will bring the total number of conservation officers around the province to 160. Environment Minister George Heyman also announced that resources are also being added to locations with the highest need. “We recognize the need for additional conservation officers to help protect our natural resources and lessen human-wildlife conflicts. For too long, there has been a lack of frontline conservation officers, and communities have suffered the consequences,” said George Heyman, Minister of Environment and Climate Change Strategy. “We are taking action to put more boots on the ground, so all British Columbians can benefit from the important work conservation officers do every day.”Conservation officers work on a zone-coverage basis, where officers respond to complaints and concerns anywhere in the zone. The COS considers several factors when determining where any new conservation officers were posted, including officer safety, call volume, zone coverage and geographic location.These new faces will fill existing vacancies, new positions and areas where retirements are imminent. The recruits will start training at the Western Conservation Law Enforcement Academy in May.“More conservation officers on the ground mean more eyes and ears to respond to complaints, and to educate the public, prevent human-wildlife conflicts and protect our natural resources,” said Doug Forsdick, chief conservation officer with the B.C. Conservation Officer Service (COS). “I am proud of the hard work our conservation officers do across the province, and look forward to the latest contingent of new officers serving their communities.”last_img read more

first_imgBaharampur/Bongaon(WB): Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who had been reprimanded by Election Commission for referring Indian Army as ‘Modiji ki Sena’, Monday called on it(army) to depict a strong India under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He claimed that during the Congress rule China used to enter Indian territory at will and play with the country’s security. “But you have seen how strongly the government has acted under Modiji’s leadership ? Dokalam is an example before you. China had tried to enter Dokalam, which is in Bhutan, an Indian protectorate. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ “Indian soldiers did not allow China to enter and after a two-month stand off, was forced to move back,” he said while speaking at election rallies here. Adityanath said that after the Pulwama attack, all terrorists involved were killed within 72 hours and the Indian Air Force entered Pakistan territory and destroyed terror camps at Balakot. “This is the first time that a government has acted with such strong resolve,” he said. The UP chief minister claimed that Congress wants to play with the security of 130 crore people of the country. The party in its election manifesto for the 2019 parliamentary elections, has promised to review the provisions of Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act and sedition law. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&K Asserting that there should not be any differentiation among the people of the country on the basis of creed, language or religion, Adityanath said that when Modi became the prime minister he had given the slogan of “Sabka sath sabka vikas”. “He (Modi) had said development of all will be done with the participation of everybody, but will not indulge in appeasement of anyone. But Congress, Trinamool Congress and the Communists are doing this in Bengal,” the UP chief minister said. Bengal is the seat of nationalism and must not be allowed to be used as the base of extremism and Naxalite movement. These parties played with the security of Bengal along with that of the country, he added.last_img read more

Both Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative Ian Martin, who also heads the UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN), and Maoist Chairman Prachanda were accompanied by political and military colleagues at their meeting in the Himalayan country.Military representatives will commence meetings to confer on lessons learned from the verification at the Ilam cantonment site and will also talk about possibility reviewing disputed cases, UNMIN said in a press statement.The mission stressed that the review of a handful of cases could be based solely on criteria in the Agreement on Monitoring the Management of Arms and Armies.The mission said it expects the discharge of those found to be ineligible, and anticipated that the Special Committee established by the Interim Government will give the process priority.UNMIN teams completed the first phase of registering weapons and personnel in mid-February, when more than 30,850 Maoist personnel were registered and 2,855 weapons were stored under 24-hour UN monitoring. An equivalent number of weapons of the Nepal Army was also stored under UN-monitoring as part of this process.In a related development, the first-ever report of the UN Electoral Expert Monitoring Team (EEMT), which cited the security situation as posing the largest threat to the Constituent Assembly elections slated to take place later this year, was submitted this week to the Nepalese Government.The report of the EEMT – which operates independently of UNMIN – recommended that political leaders reach agreement, including signing codes of conduct which will be distributed widely among party activists, on security long before the elections take place.EEMT was established by a Security Council resolution and comprises five members appointed by the Secretary-General.It is tasked with regularly assessing the electoral process to determine whether it will lead to a result accurately reflecting the Nepalese people’s will. The team visited the country from 11 to 23 June.Its report sets benchmarks, based on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), to assess the election’s preparations. They include periodic elections, universal and equal suffrage, the right to stand for public office and the right to vote.EEMT noted that the upcoming election’s representation formula meets democratic standards and ensures both universal suffrage and the right to contest elections.At the same time, the report expressed concern that the control of the political elites could be bolstered and the free choice of voters thwarted by Article 7 of the Constituency Assembly Members Election Act, which stipulates that once results are issues, the central party committee will allocate winning seats from the proportional representation ballot to individual candidates. 20 July 2007The senior United Nations envoy to Nepal and the leader of the Maoists today agreed on the resumption of the second phase of registration and verification of Maoist army personnel – to ensure that no minors are serving – as soon as possible. read more

27 March 2009The Asia-Pacific arm of the United Nations has launched an initiative aimed at cutting through the red tape that is adding as much as 15 per cent to the cost of goods traded in the region. The scheme will pool expertise and experience of countries in the region to remove hidden trade barriers, such as delays at border crossings, harbours and docks caused by cumbersome procedures and excessive paperwork.The UN Network of Experts for Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific (UN NExT) initiative was launched at a high-level meeting this week in Bangkok, which was organized by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and the UN Economic Commission for Europe (ECE).Ravi Ratnayake, Director of the Trade and Investment Division of ESCAP, said hidden trade barriers have resulted in the “higher cost of exports and lost opportunities in trade, which the countries in the Asia-Pacific region cannot afford at a time of great economic turmoil.”While commending the fiscal stimulus packages of the region in response to the on-going global economic turmoil and the emphasis they place on physical infrastructure, Mr. Ratnayake said, “we at ESCAP believe that the region should also take this opportunity to address its ‘soft infrastructure’ challenges – the many forms of institutional barriers to trade.”Capacity building, training, sharing experience on successful trade facilitation measures, and sensitizing policy makers on the importance of trade facilitation were among the elements of a work programme presented by UN NeXT at the end of the meeting. read more

first_imgGreg Evans, Executive Director – Coal, Minerals Council of Australia (MCA) explains that his group together with Australian Coal Association Low Emission Technology (ACALET) has launched a new national campaign to provide information about the iconic Australian coal industry and the importance of coal in underpinning our energy future. The Little Black Rock campaign covers TV, radio, press and online advertising. The campaign explains the many economic and social benefits that coal delivers but also the investment the industry is making to deliver significant efficiencies and much lower emissions.Evans says “Australia has the fourth-largest share of coal reserves in the world and all Australians benefit from coal through its contribution to exports, wages, investment and Federal and State government revenues. The campaign will have three key messages.“First, it will highlight the indispensable role played by Australia’s coal industry in providing low cost energy and resource security to all Australians as well as billions of people in East and South Asia. Coal delivered more than 850 million people out of energy poverty in the last 25 years, many times more than any other energy source. As the world’s largest exporter of metallurgical coal used in steel-making, Australia is playing an essential role in supporting the urbanisation and industrialisation underway to improve living standards and opportunities for people in the developing world.“Second, new technologies are dramatically reducing CO2 and particulate emissions from coal-fired power generation. New high efficiency, low emissions (HELE) coal-fired generators emits 20-25% less CO2 than the average of existing power stations and up to 40% less than the oldest technology in place. There are now more than 670 of these new generation power units in Asia alone helping to sharply reduce the region’s carbon footprint. Hundreds more are under construction or planned. Moreover, commercial scale carbon capture and storage with coal-fired generation is now a reality. Canada’s Saskpower plant is delivering affordable energy with a 90% reduction in CO2 emissions.Third, the campaign will highlight the contribution of the coal industry in providing 150,000 direct and related jobs, generating A$40 billion in export income and paying more than A$6 billion in wages. Strong forecasts of demand will ensure that this contribution will continue for decades. Global coal trade is projected to expand by 40% by 2040, with Australia forecast to regain its ranking as the world’s biggest coal exporter as early as 2017.“The coal industry is committed to an informative and rational discussion on the contribution coal is making to jobs, economic growth and low cost energy in Australia, with the campaign to continue indefinitely to advance these important issues.”The campaign has already suffered significant mocking on social media.To see the new campaign website and TV ad, go to www.littleblackrock.com.aulast_img read more

French handballOlympic handball momentsomeyerRivera ValeroTunisaVeselin Vukovic After fantastic handball event in London durign Olympic Games, Handball-Planet.com wants to save some memories and try to find the best conclusions of the days in „Copper Box“ and „Basketball Arena“.1 „UNBEATABLE FRANCE“ – „EXPERTS“ WIN FIFTH GOLD IN FOUR YEARS…The best handball generation ever were over-excited after winning second gold medal at the Olympics, what they showed with a „classy celebration“. What to say more about work of Claude Onesta and his players than –  five golds at the last six big handball Tournaments since Beijing 2008. They were the best in the crucial moments, which means that they are real CHAMPIONS.2. „FOURTH SWEDISH DEFEAT IN THE FINAL, BUT WITH A SMILE“Despite they lost the fourth Olympic final, Sweden has to be happy with the performance which nobody expected from them. Before London, Swedish handball team was considered as the group of solid players with just a few stars, which doesn’t have atmosphere and motivation to be here.  As Sweden didn’t even qualified for the World Championship 2013 in Spain, because many of the players didn’t want to play against Montenegro, nobody expected that Olympic Final will be reachable for them, but „Benga Boys“, Lindgren and Olsson was again on the edge of the dream of their teacher – Bengt Johansson.3. DANISH PROBLEM WITH „HANDBALL RULE“„Handball Rule“ is „Handball Rule“. In the year of Olympic Games, European champion isn’t able to repeat the same results – gold medal. Despite his huge experience, legendary Ulrik Wilbek was unable to make „winning atmosphere“ for the second time in last six months after Serbia. After Danes lost easily in the Preliminary Round match against Croatia with 11 goals, it’s became obvious that they aren’t on „golden level“, but still, majority of handball fans across the Globe expected to see Hansen and Co. in the semi-final.  Beijing is repeated…4. RIVERA’S THE „THOUGHEST DEFEAT OF CAREER“Spain was really close to the medals battles, but „Prince William“ (Accambray) has found a „key“ for Arpad Sterbik in the quarter-finals match.  Spaniards made everything to take medal in London and save our sport under big financial problems in this country.  Now, they have one more chance – World Championship on home soil next  January. Spain needs „big success“ to avoid handball from going down year by year. Rivera had everything in his own hands, but the „Experts“ had luck and knowledge…5. CROATIAN FEAR  OF OMEYER – AN „OLD STORY“They were perfect in the Preliminary Round. Attack, counter-attack, tall defense, good goalkeepers, everything what Croatian team made in the first five matches in London was from „fairytales“. And then came France with Thierry Omeyer. Unbelievable lack of self-confidence and an old „complex“ from French goalkeeper has been seen on that match. Čupić, Duvnjak and other best scorers of Croatia was totally out of the match. Perfect as always in the crucial moments“, Titi Omeyer broke Croatian dreams about gold medal.6. „TWO WINS – ONE DRAW – FOUR DEFEATS“ – FOURTH PLACE FOR HUNGARYHungarians were the fourth team of Group B with three defeats (two of them were easy) and two wins, but Lajos Mocsai knew that the most important match on this kind of tournament is quarter-finals clash. They beat Iceland after 80 minutes, but there were no more strength and quality for the medal battles. Hungary repeated success from Athens 2004. Big success for them as they lost matches against Denmark and Spain, teams who stayed out of the TOP 4 and beat only Korea, Serbia and Iceland (after extra-time).7. „SERBS ARE BACK IN 2010“„Why are you doing this, why you are going back two years? asked Serbian head-coach, Veselin Vukovic his players of one of the time-outs.  Despite huge expectations of spoiled sports fans in Belgrade, Serbia is back to reality, after silver medal at the EHF EURO 2012, finished 9th in London, something simliar as at World Championship 2011, where they were 10th.  Serbs showed lack of concentration in the decisive moments of the matches with Spain and Hungary, what was „enough“ that „Eagles“ missed quarter-finals. Someof the  key players (Ilic, Vujin, Nikcevic) had problem to find form during the event in the „Copper Box“ and broke ilusions of their compatriots…8. TUNISIAN FIRST ¼ FINALTunisia has played in the first Olympic quarter-finals in the history, but team coached by Frenchmen Porteau will stay remembered more because of the „ugliest“ handball in London. In the match against Croatia in the quarter-finals, we couldn’t see too much handball from Tunisians, just rugby, box or some other discipline. Shameful for the team, who knows to play handball…9. SOLD OUT HALLS – GREAT START FOR HANDBALL IN GREAT BRITAINIt’s sounds funny for us, people who have handball „in the blood“ that a lot of people in London discovered handball as an fantastic sport for the first time in their lives, but better late than never. Many nice words and good articles were written about handballi from U.S  and English journalists. Hopefully, handball will make some progress from that in these two countries…10. GOLUZA’S “STORM“…One of the NT coaches, Slavko Goluza (Croatia) used the opportunity of the fantastic Olympic scene to get out of the sports and talk about the war after Balkan derby with Serbia. Obviously this orientation on some things which have nothing about with handball, costed him a lack of concentration in the semi-final match against France… ← Previous Story KIF Kolding to try to create Dream Team with former AGK players Next Story → Women’s Olympic Handball TOP 10 moments: Norway, Popovic, Bonaventura, Brasil’s tears… read more

first_imgVALENTINE’S DAY – an enjoyable occasion to celebrate love and romance or a marketer’s dream? There is no denying that 14 February continues to attract intense interest and responses from consumers eager to celebrate (or indeed, ignore!) this day of l’amour, whilst businesses and retailers enthusiastically embrace and seek to expand the accompanying commercial opportunities.In terms of the origins of St Valentine’s Day, there is as much colour and variation when it comes to its history as there is in the range and diversity of gift ideas offered to smitten purchasers. One Roman legend suggests that the original Valentine was a third century priest who incurred the wrath of Claudius II, Emperor of Rome. Claudius had apparently decreed that young men should not be allowed to marry, and instead should be encouraged to join his army.ValentineValentine railed against the perceived injustice of this ban and performed marriage ceremonies in secret until this came to the attention of an angry Claudius. Whilst Valentine was imprisoned, it is suggested that he befriended his jailer’s blind daughter and wrote her a farewell letter, signed “from your Valentine”, before being executed on the 14 February 269 AD.Today, Valentine’s Day is a key commercial event planned for by many retailers in the traditionally slow-moving months of January and February. Recent figures from Visa Europe relating to the occasion, suggest that in the Irish market, holders of their cards will spend approximately €10 million in florist shops this year, and that 40 per cent of Irish people will buy flowers especially to mark the day.So too, greeting cards, chocolates, jewellery and lingerie continue to be staple purchases whilst other gifts include champagne, dinner reservations, hotel breaks, spa treatments, flying lessons and hot air balloon flights. Not surprisingly, the most popular gift of all is the greeting card. Valentine’s Day is the second-most popular day of the year to exchange cards, the first being Christmas.For example, Hallmark, who first sold Valentine’s Day cards in 1913, offer a choice of over 1,400 cards, which cater for different price points, ranging from a value line of cards to a premium signature collection. For the more technologically-minded consumer seeking an alternative to the traditional card, there is a plethora of apps for iPhones and iPads – one such greeting app being the imaginatively named Luv Bytes for the iPad.HallmarkWhat is interesting is how the card and gift market has now grown to include and acknowledge all forms of relationships such as parents, siblings, school-teachers and children. For example, Hallmark offers a range of cards that can be given to children that feature small collectable characters such as Spider-Man and Minnie Mouse, as well as a specific line of cards for Justin Bieber fans. Remaining with the child market, Amazon offer a line of Valentine’s Day gifts especially for young consumers, ranging from arts and crafts including  stickers, beads and crayons, to teddy bears bearing messages such as “I wuff you”.But the market for Valentine’s Day gifts continues to grow as marketers cannily identify other recipients of the gift-giver’s fondness and affection. One such example is the dog and cat sector. For example, PetSmart, a major speciality pet retailer, operating over 1,290 stores in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico have developed a line of gifts for pets called Luv-A-Pet, featuring over 40 Valentine-themed products for ‘pet parents’ seeking to treat their dogs or cats. Seasonal products that can be bought in-store or online for one’s pet include a Paw Dress, Bow Tie and Cupid Socks.Marketing love and romanceWhilst the day is associated with love and romance, marketers are careful to target consumers in a positive way. For example, humour is a prevalent appeal used in Valentine’s Day cards whilst PetSmart appeals to one’s sense of altruism by allocating ten per cent of the purchase price of the Luv-A-Pet line, to chosen pet charities.So too, marketers use positive references in targeting consumers who may not be giving or receiving Valentine’s Day cards and gifts this year, but would like to be. For example, one approach used by advertisers is to use positive and affirmative phrases such as “new year, new love”, “celebrate you”, or encouraging single consumers to enjoy their independent status.Finally, in response to the economic situation, retailers are attuned to the value-seeking, Valentine’s Day consumer with Wal-Mart offering detailed advice on how to do “romance on a budget”. Tips on Wal-Mart’s website range from how to replicate a restaurant dining experience at home, with suitable décor and lighting, to organising an indoor picnic.On the other hand, for those consumers on a quest for more unique gift ideas this year, Harrods of London Valentine’s offerings include a platinum-plated pencil sharpener for £270 or a sterling silver money clip for £259. A seven piece set of copper cookware costs £1,499 while a 50 year old bottle of malt whiskey is retailing at just under £11,000.It would seem that as long as consumer interest in Valentine’s Day continues to blossom, so too do the commercial opportunities that come with it.Dr Margaret-Anne Lawlor is a lecturer in Marketing Communications at the Dublin Institute of Technology, College of Business, Aungier Street.Pictures: 5 alternative Valentine’s Day cards… Irish style>Read: 7 very Irish Valentine’s Day presents>last_img read more

first_imgIf you thought the RIAA’s original demand of $75 trillion in compensation from LimeWire was a teensy bit excessive, you were absolutely right. Heck, even the low end of their sliding damages scale seemed way off the mark at $400 billion. However, the now-bankrupt LimeWire has finally reached a settlement with the Association — and it’s for one heck of a lot less money.The dust has now settled, and the two sides have agreed on the comparatively meager sum of $105 million. Based on the 9,700+ tracks introduced as evidence during legal proceedings, that works out to about $10,800 per track. While it’s not the huge sum of money the RIAA was after, it’s still a win — and it should help compensate the actual artists for their lost album sales, right?Wrong. According to RIAA spokesman Johnathan Lamy, money “recovered” via lawsuits gets dumped back into the coffers to help fund future anti-piracy campaigns. That makes the LimeWire settlement a big win for the record labels, but whether or not anything substantive trickles down to the musicians remains to be seen.Anyway you look at it, the assault on LimeWire has been a major victory for the RIAA and labels. LimeWire has been in their sights since 2006 (if not earlier) and had proved to be a difficult target. Once the killshot was fired in late 2010, however, the global music piracy rate dropped by as much as 43% — or about 12 million fewer downloaders in the U.S. alone.And yet, strangely, the Gnutella network is still alive and kicking and other client apps continue providing users access to the same files LimeWire once helped them download. You’ve got to wonder how much longer it will be before the RIAA decides to flex its muscles on those who maintain the remaining apps — though it likely won’t be long with a pile of fresh settlement money available to fund its efforts.More at TorrentFreaklast_img read more

first_imgAt the recently concluded VMWorld conference, VMWare announced Project Pacific, a re-architected version of vSphere, which embeds the Kubernetes control plane inside it. It aims to enable unified management of containers and virtual machines in vSphere installations. Developers can use Kubernetes declarative syntax to manage VMs, disks and networks. This can be useful for teams that have heterogeneous stacks spanning containers as well as VMs. However, this applies only if their existing apps are on vSphere managed VMs.Project Pacific adopts the Kubernetes Namespace model so that VM operations and policies can be applied to Kubernetes objects. These include resource allocation, encryption, HA and snapshots. Project Pacific is a “re-architecture of vSphere with Kubernetes as its control plane”,  says Jared Rosoff, Senior Director, Product Management for Workload Management in vSphere.The two key pieces of the integration – the Kubernetes agent and the container runtime – are provided by custom vSphere components. A special kind of Kubernetes cluster called Supervisor runs on a Pacific installation. It uses ESXi – the hypervisor used by vSphere deployments – instead of Linux nodes. The corresponding Kubernetes agent on the ESXi node is called a “Spherelet”. The Spherelet is based on the Virtual Kubelet project which is primarily used to link Kubernetes with other services that provide a host platform on which pods can run. Virtual Kubelet was open sourced by Microsoft and is used by other platforms too.To spin up containers, ESXi has a container runtime called CRX. Rosoff notes that “the CRX is like a virtual machine that includes a Linux kernel and minimal container runtime inside the guest. But since this Linux kernel is coupled with the hypervisor, we’re able to make a number of optimizations to effectively paravirtualized the container.” CRX uses a technique called Direct Boot to begin initialization without the usual kernel init and power management steps.A Pacific installation can thus run two kinds of pods – ESXi native, on the ESXi managed hosts, and pods on the VMs in the supervisor cluster. The latter, called a “guest cluster”, is a vanilla Kubernetes cluster. To manage VMs from Kubernetes, the supervisor cluster has an operator. This allows mixing container and VM deployments in the same YAML file. The operator integrates with vSphere’s existing lifecycle management service.VMWare has also integrated the Harbor container registry into vSphere. Harbor was an internal VMWare project that was subsequently open sourced. Pacific is currently in technical preview mode.last_img read more

first_img(Graphic courtesy of National Snow and Ice Data Center)This week, we’re responding to a listener who asked whether it’s true that sea ice in Antarctic waters has been generally increasing, while Arctic sea ice has seen dramatic declines.Listen now“The short answer to the question is ‘yes,’” climatologist Brian Brettschneider said. “There’s been a trend in the last decade or so of increasing sea ice surrounding Antarctica. But from a climate point of view, that’s really far less significant than the decline that we’ve seen in the Arctic. And even if you add the two together, the overall trend is a reduction in global sea ice.”It’s important to remember that it’s summer right now in the Southern Hemisphere, but still, Antarctica’s record low is for any day of the year since 1979 when they started keeping satellite records.“So not only do we have record lows in the Arctic, but we’ve just set an all time record low in the Antarctic,” Brettschneider said. “So it’s bad all around.”The overall trend in the Antarctic has been of increasing sea ice but this year is a different story.“Remember that climate effects are vastly different,” said Brettschneider. “It’s not a zero sum game. You don’t just add Arctic and Antarctic sea ice and that’s your ice climate equation. Arctic sea ice is far more significant from a global climate perspective.”Researchers are still trying to understand why there’s been an increase in sea ice in the last 10 to 15 years. Some theorize that glacial melt is flooding the ocean with more fresh water which freezes more easily than sea water.“There’s also some discussion about the jet stream pattern, the circumpolar jet stream, at about 60 degrees south latitude and how that is preventing, at certain times of year, low pressure areas from generating large swells and kind of breaking up the ice, so it makes it (the sea ice) a little bit more resilient,” Brettschneider said.Alaska’s Energy Desk is checking in with climatologist Brian Brettschneider each week as part of the segment, Ask a Climatologist.

Houstons Student Congress Launches New Civic Fellowship

first_img To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Share Listen 00:00 /01:00 HISDStudents from across the Houston school district as well as neighboring districts are expected to participate in the first fellowship on civic engagement.Starting this summer, 20 high school sophomores, juniors and seniors from across Greater Houston will spend a year learning to engage in civics. They’ll also study how to manage projects and lead their own effort to improve their community.The effort is the brainchild of the Houston ISD Student Congress, reflecting the rise of student activism across the country and in Houston.It’s called the Institute of Engagement and it’s meant to support the next generation of civic leaders for Greater Houston.“We’re pulling resources from all across the community to give them a really engaging curriculum and to really give them a rubber stamp in their communities,” Uyiosa Elegon recently told the Houston school board. He graduated from DeBakey High School and attends the University of Houston.The program is free for participants and will kick off this summer with an intensive workshop at Rice University, funded by the Simmons Foundation.The idea is to support new civic leaders who can take ownership of Houston’s problems and find solutions.While the Houston ISD Student Congress brings together leaders from high schools across the state’s largest district, the new civic fellowship is open to students from other school districts in the region.Daniel Rodriguez is the incoming speaker for the Houston ISD Student Congress and recently asked the Houston school board for its support, such as providing transportation for a trip to Austin when the Texas Legislature reconvenes next year.“We also want help for partnerships with companies that you can help us reach, and for materials and supplies at monthly meetings with (the Institute for Engagement) and, finally, we want good communication building with the district and ourselves,” Rodriguez said.

first_imgDecember 7, 2018 Enroll Now for Free Not so long ago, harried airline customers used to purchase paper tickets — paper! — from an attendant at the counter. Remember that particular joy? The airport experience today is better because it’s largely digital and self-serviced, a trend that’s swept across nearly every industry segment.JetBlue recently even announced the latest steps of its total digital transformation, which includes improvements to its mobile and website experiences. In 2017, the airline began a three-year effort to overhaul its procedures and usher in a new era of customer service, which then led to self-serve kiosks and check-in desks.Before that, JetBlue Technology Ventures had  already been established to invest in startups focused on offering real value to travelers — through services covering everything from improving traffic flow at airports to creating better communication around flight delays.Related: Ten Key Pitfalls to Avoid During the Digital Transformation ProcessWhile JetBlue and plenty of other businesses understand what a digital transformation is and why achieving one is pivotal to running a modern company effectively, many can’t get a handle on how to make one happen. Only 50 of 1,000 companies surveyed by Riverbed said they’d had no difficulty in navigating digital upgrades. Ninety-five percent had run into problems.In addition, 80 percent of survey respondents reported that their user experience and productivity had taken hits because of multiple failures of digital applications and services, often happening multiple times a month.That’s damaging of course, because digital service failures can diminish a brand’s reputation and customer loyalty, reduce sales and revenue or even delay a project’s release.What success looks like.While digital transformations might seem more suited to large industries or corporations, when the goal is to tap into enterprise or B2B needs, the process also can apply to consumer interactions, which can produce effects that go beyond padding a client’s bottom line.Look at what’s happened in banking. At the beginning of the mobile revolution, banking software on all devices left much to be desired. Accessing records was difficult, and users had no ability to search transactions. Most of the time, banks served customers spreadsheets or PDF versions of the same documents they got in the mail.But banking software has turned a corner, with examples such as Capital One’s integration of the Alexa assistant into a customer helper and with the widening use of Touch ID and Face ID to give users quick access to their accounts. Everything about the interactive banking experience, in fact, has gotten better due to digital transformation.Related: Does Your Business Need a Digital Transformation?The addition of Alexa at Capital One enables customers to use voice commands to track recent transactions, balance their virtual checkbooks and pay bills. This improvement has addressed two primary needs: a customer’s ability to perform a task without having to drop what he or she is doing, and the customer’s ability to check his or her basic financial wellness.En route, the development team that gave Alexa her banking skills needed to strike a delicate balance of security and convenience so that customers wouldn’t grow frustrated, ditch the virtual assistant and return to using the mobile app.What startups and SMBs should be doing.When seen as a whole, digital transformations may seem incredibly daunting. But they don’t have to be. Business leaders can follow these simple steps to success when planning their own digital transformations:1. Focus on accurately identifying the problem before trying to solve it.Don’t waste time by trying to solve a problem before performing actual research that identifies its cause. Take Hasbro, for instance: By leveraging available data, the toy company ran targeted ads on social media for products such as Play-Doh and Monopoly, pivoting from kids to the actual purchasers: their parents.Expanding its reach along the way by using multiple marketing channels, Hasbro also began to employ an ad-tech platform that drives sales by advertising impulse buys when customers are ready to make purchases on retailer sites. These tactics — which require an eye-popping 1,100 percent increase in advertising spending — grew sales by $1 billion, with Hasbro in 2016 reaching a $5 billion total for the first time in its 93-year history.2. Hypothesize potential solutions.Develop “user stories.” For example: “As a user, I want to be signed out from my account when I’m idle for 10 minutes.” Put the stories in front of potential users and see whether they find them useful.Related: The Pursuit of Digital TransformationImagine working at a construction site or a manufacturing plant where the company keeps track of safety reports in massive binders that supervisors need to fill out by hand, literally with carbon-copy replicas stacked among the pages. How much effort is wasted in creating such paper records and shuffling them between shift managers?How accessible is the data if someone has to read through hundreds of pages to find specific incidents or details? Alternately, user stories could help identify where to focus your efforts.Bechtel Corp., one of the world’s largest construction companies (and one of our clients), now utilizes industry-leading software that far surpasses what its competitors can do. This software makes a substantial impact on Bechtel’s project (and profit) margins, which approach nearly $100 million per project in estimated savings when deployed.3. Make changes when a proposed solution isn’t working.SMBs and startups should always be in fail-fast mode. If an approach isn’t working, a company shouldn’t be afraid to make swift changes.Customer input here is critical: Accordingly, brands like Walgreens, Target and Domino’s are giving customers first-person views of their digital transformation by finding ways to improve their in-store experiences and creating better end products. Walgreens customers can choose to pay via their mobile phones, and Target shoppers can use their phones to access an app — which Target has been streamlining and upgrading — to identify deals.Whether you bring an innovation agency in to your own company or assign an internal team to tackle problems, you’ll need to start creating prototyping and testing environments to see whether you’re going down the right road. Test early and often, and make changes when a proposed solution isn’t doing the job.Digital transformation is about solving problems in ways that encourage users to interact. While challenging, what transformation comes down to is a set of vital changes that will impact a company and its customers — internal or external — for generations to come. This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience.
