first_img5 Ways IoT can Help to Reduce Automatic Vehicle… Amanda Razani Break the Mold with Real-World Logistics AI and… For Self-Driving Systems, Infrastructure and In… According to the Wall Street Journal, Verizon just joined a $10 million investment round in Renovo Auto, the autonomous vehicle startup that became famous after turning a vintage DeLorean into a self-driving vehicle.Founded in 2010, this California-based company builds technology that combines self-driving software, safety systems, and data analytics. The company’s many sensors can supposedly generate multiple terabytes of data each hour, even in the most extreme environments.See Also: How is the new age of digital transformation changing the utilities sector?Verizon has made several acquisitions dealing with the telematics industry, which is a quickly expanding sector focusing on making autonomous cars more efficient and roadworthy. For autonomous vehicles to become a mainstream reality, high-end internet is needed, which is an area where Verizon specializes and is the current market leader.The Wall Street Journal states that a normal autonomous vehicle produces 4 terabytes of data within 90 minutes, which is equal to 3,000 people’s internet usage during a three-year timespan.Big moves by the wireless carrierLast year, Verizon acquired a GPS vehicle trucking specialist, Fleetmatics, as well as Telogis, which is a cloud-based software firm. Once these deals were completed, it was reported that Verizon had launched to a top spot in the telematics market worldwide, controlling close to a quarter of it. Verizon also wants to boost its role in advertising markets. The company’s acquisitions of AOL and Yahoo will be in direct competition with Google and Facebook,  the two dominant players in the blossoming digital advertising industry. center_img IT Trends of the Future That Are Worth Paying A… Tags:#Autonomous#IoT#Renovo#verizon Related Posts last_img read more

first_imgOTTAWA – Canada Post issued wide-ranging new contract offers to its employees Wednesday in the hope of preventing a work stoppage at the Crown corporation ahead of the busy holiday online shopping season, The Canadian Press has learned.The offers included “improvements to pay and benefits, adding job security for rural and suburban employees and no changes to the existing defined benefit pension plan,” the agency confirmed in an emailed statement.“It also includes more certainty and opportunities for temporary and part-time workers,” Canada Post said.The proposals came after high-level talks were held over the weekend aimed at bridging an impasse in negotiations with the union representing 50,000 of its workers.The talks had stalled in recent weeks, mainly over wages and working conditions.Failure to reach agreements with the agency’s 42,000 unionized urban carriers and 8,000 rural and suburban employees could result in a strike or lockout once a 72 hour notice period expires.Any job action at Canada Post this time of year could threaten deliveries of packages to consumers who shop online. Canada Post said last year that it delivered about one million parcels per day during the holiday season — an increase of 20 per cent over the same period in 2016.Canada Post said its new offers acknowledged a “rapid increase in the number of parcels” by including what it called “short and long-term measures to address the resulting workload issues for employees.”A spokesman for the Canadian Union of Postal Workers confirmed the union had received new proposals from the Crown corporation late Wednesday, but said the bargaining agents would need to analyze them before commenting.The counter offers were issued more than two weeks after CUPW issued broad-ranging contract proposals of its own that included demands for 3.5 per cent annual wage hikes.Canada Post had earlier offered wage increases of 1.5 per cent per year but did not provide details on it latest proposals.The agency did say, however, that the new offer for rural and suburban carriers, known as RSMCs, “goes above and beyond the important changes made as a result of the recent pay equity ruling.”An arbitrator last month ordered Canada Post to give RSMCs pay increases of up to 25 per cent to settle a long-fought pay-equity dispute.Not including added benefits that were part of the ruling, CUPW said the pay increase amounted to as much as $13,000 annually, retroactive to the beginning of 2016.In bargaining for a new RSMC contract, CUPW had sought hourly pay rates for rural and suburban carriers equivalent to what urban letter carriers are paid, along with better job security and minimum guaranteed hours.An initial Sept. 26 deadline for reaching agreements passed with no job action after the union said it would wait to see whether progress could be made at the bargaining table.Postal workers have been without contracts since the beginning of the year.The union has said it also hoped the latest round of bargaining would see agreements for both sets of workers combined into a single, new contract.Federal Labour Minister Patty Hajdu has encouraged both sides to continue negotiating toward collective agreements, with the help of a mediator, to avoid a work stoppage.last_img read more

first_imgLondon: A cornered Theresa May issued a stark warning to the warring factions within the UK Parliament that the choice was between agreeing on a withdrawal agreement or risk no Brexit at all. In her latest statement from Downing Street on Saturday evening, the British Prime Minister sought to defend her move to reach out to Opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn in an attempt to break the ongoing parliamentary deadlock over Britain’s impending exit from the European Union (EU). Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from USBecause Parliament has made clear it will stop the UK leaving without a deal, we now have a stark choice: leave the European Union with a deal or do not leave at all, she said. My answer to that is clear: we must deliver Brexit and to do so we must agree a deal. If we cannot secure a majority among Conservative and DUP MPs we have no choice but to reach out across the House of Commons, she added. Her latest intervention comes amid a mounting mutiny within her own Conservative Party for sitting down with Corbyn to thrash out a solution, which will inevitably take the form of a so-called soft Brexit given Labour’s preference for a common Customs Union with the EU as part of any future relationship with the economic bloc. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential pollsHowever, the British PM highlighted that it was either that or not leaving the 28-member economic bloc at all and reneging on the June 2016 referendum in favour of Brexit. She said: The longer this takes, the greater the risk of the UK never leaving at all. It would mean letting the Brexit the British people voted for slip through our fingers. I will not stand for that. It is essential we deliver what people voted for and to do that we need to get a deal over the line. In a clear attempt at placating her hard Brexiteer party MPs, May insisted that there are areas where the two main UK parties, Conservatives and Labour, agree. We both want to end free movement, we both want to leave with a good deal, and we both want to protect jobs. That is the basis for a compromise that can win a majority in Parliament and winning that majority is the only way to deliver Brexit, she stressed. May is set for another trip to Brussels next week to follow up on her letter to European Council President Donald Tusk seeking a short extension to Article 50 until June 30. However, it remains to be seen what the remaining EU member countries will be willing to agree to, with any decision on an extension to the Brexit mechanism requiring their unanimous backing. The UK has already sought one extension to the March 29 Brexit deadline and is set to crash out of the bloc on April 12 unless an alternative arrangement is agreed with the EU. British MPs have rejected May’s EU divorce bill three times over the controversial Irish backstop clause and last week’s talks between the two main parties were aimed at trying to find a proposal which could break the deadlock in the Commons before an emergency EU summit on Wednesday. However, the three days of meetings stalled without agreement on Friday. Corbyn has said he was “waiting to see the red lines move” and had not “noticed any great change in the government’s position”. He is himself under pressure from his MPs to demand another referendum on any deal he reaches with the government, with 80 Labour MPs signing a letter saying a public vote should be the “bottom line” in the negotiations.last_img read more

first_imgNew Delhi: England’s Joe Root said that the omission of batsman Alex Hales has had a unifying effect on the team. Hales had been named in the preliminary squad for the World Cup, that starts on May 30, despite serving a 21-day suspension following an “off-field incident”, which The Guardian later reported was a positive test for recreational drugs. After the matter went public, Hales was subsequently dropped from the team. Captain Eoin Morgan said that the incident had led to a “complete breakdown in trust” and that all the senior players of the team agreed that dropping Hales was the best decision.

first_imgMADRID – President Mario Ray says he will not work for differences, but for solidarity.Spain intensively discusses the referandum to be held on November 9 next year for the separation of autonomous Catalonia.Ruling Catalan Nationalist Coalition (CIU) has declared the coalition by compromising with the seperatist parties in Catalonia saying “Spain can not hinder the plebiscite”, nevertheless Spain’s ruling People Party (PP) and main opposition Socialist Worker’s Party (PSOE) argues that referandum will not be implemented under any circumstances. President Mariano Roy said, “I obviously expressed my idea regarding this issue. I will work to emphasize connective factors, not the differences. Spain’s sovereignty can be decided by all Spanish people. Any prime minister, political party or parliament can not decide what Spain is.”Spanish Prime Minister commented on the plebiscite by saying, “Spain is one of the oldest nations of Europe and it is one of the leading countries which provided its union.”Chief of PSOE Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba also criticized the developments. He said, they are not in favor of “self-determination of future” which was mostly used by autonomous Catalonia, stressing that a probable seperation of Catalonia would not be for the good of Spain and Europe.The referandum will include the “Do you want Catalonia to be a state?” question, and “Do you want this state [Catalonia] to be independent?” which will be asked to voters saying “Yes” to the first question, and its pre-agreement is expected to be voted and confirmed in Catalan Parliament on January 15, 2013. Then the Catalan government is expected to submit the results of the plebiscite and ask for a general referandum in Spain.last_img read more

Rap impresario Jay-Z is changing the sports agent game and scaring the white establishment as he’s doing it. Big-time athletes are breaking ranks, signing with Beyonce’s husband’s agency, Roc Nation, not just because it’s cool to be on his team, but also because his business acumen is producing blockbuster results.People laughed and smirked when Jay-Z announced he was expanding his empire to athlete representation two years ago. Impressively, he leveraged his popularity as an artist to attain some of sports’ top young stars’ attention and is doing right by them in contact negotiations.Jigga Man is laughing now with his latest coup, signing Dallas Cowboys star receiver Dez Bryant, who shunned agent Eugene Parker just as he is up for a new, mega-contract. Bryant’s reasons for the move mirror the thoughts of others who have shunned going with large, white firms for representation.He can relate to Jay-Z.“I feel like it fits me,” Bryant said to ESPNDallas.com. “It fits what I’m trying to do, what I’m trying to accomplish in life. I want to be the best that I can possibly be. It ain’t about a contract. It’s about me branding myself and being an icon for these kids. I love kids and they look up to me.“I come from dirt — point blank, period — and every day I’m writing my story and it’s getting better. I feel like they were the best choice for me. They can help me get to where I want to be. That’s what it is.”One person not laughing is Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who also serves as general manager. He reportedly talked Bryant out of hiring Roc Nation in the summer and was “not happy” when Bryant went against his wishes last week. It is unclear why Jones did not want the receiver to join Jay-Z’s agency. Jones dealt with Parker, who also is Black.Whatever the case, Jay-Z wins, and so his quest to be a mega-player in the agency game climbs another rung, even while many root against him. It will be interesting to see how negotiations between Jones and Roc Nation go, as Bryant has earned the right to a new contact around $12 million a season, which would be commensurate with his status as one of the elite receivers in the NFL.“I’d be highly disappointed,” Bryant said, if he did not get a max deal. Almost any agent could accomplish that; he’s deserving. It’s the outside-football exposure and endorsements where Roc Nation can up the ante for Bryant.Roc Nation has only 12 sports clients for now, and they include some of the athletic world’s top performers. Significantly, Jay-Z and Co. negotiated a 10-year, $240-million deal for Robinson Cano when he left the New York Yankees for the Seattle Mariners—an enormous deal that set Roc Nation in flight.Also on the Roc Nation team is NBA superstar Kevin Durant. Jay-Z earned its most significant deal for the Oklahoma City Thunder forward, an endorsement package with sneaker and athletic apparel giant Nike that could peak at $300 million. How Roc Nation pulled off the bonanza was as impressive as the numbers.It smartly pitted and created a bidding war between Nike and rising Under Armour, which Roc Nation knew was eager to make a splash in the endorsement world by stealing away Durant. The story goes that Nike offered $20 million a year for Durant. Jay-Z took that number to Under Armour, which offered about $26 million, intent on overtaking its competitor.But Nike flexed its muscle and offered $30 million a year, giving Roc Nation a landmark deal that shows other athletes, like Bryant, its negotiating power and legitimacy. Beyond that, there is speculation that Durant never had any intentions of leaving Nike—he took less in his previous contract instead of fleeing to Adidas.Other Roc Nation clients include WNBA star Skylar Diggins, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith, Detroit Lion lineman Ndamukon Suh and New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz, among others. Don’t be surprised if that client list rapidly increases.Curtis Bunn is a best-selling novelist and national award-winning sports journalist who has worked at The Washington Times, NY Newsday, The New York Daily News and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. read more

The Ohio State field hockey team will now be waiting on the edge of its seat Tuesday night when it will be finding out if it claimed one of the at-large bids into the 2011 NCAA Championships. The Buckeyes (12-8, 4-2) fell to the host-school, Penn State, 1-0 in a defensive battle on Friday afternoon. By losing in the semifinals of the 2011 Big Ten tournament, the Buckeyes will now need their season resume to make their case as they now stand on the bubble of being a tournament team. The Scarlet and Gray advanced to the semifinals after they defeated Michigan State, 2-1, just the day before when they scored two second-half goals against the Spartans to pave their road to their eventual loss to the Nittany Lions in the next round. The Buckeyes’ play was hindered by the strong Nittany Lions defense, which ranks at the top of the conference. “It’s tough when you are going against a goalie like theirs (Ayla Halus), who was just selected as First Team All-Big Ten this season,” senior captain Ally Tunitis said. “They are a really good team, but we played to the best of our ability.” It was clear heading into the Big Ten tournament that the team truly needed to capture the title as the No. 2 seed and a frontrunner to make it a lock to be in the NCAA Championships. “The automatic bid is what we are going for,” head coach Anne Wilkinson said prior to the tournament. All the Buckeyes can do now is sit and wait as they will be unsure of the future of their season until the selection show, which is scheduled for 8 p.m. Tuesday, with a live stream on NCAA.com. “It was unfortunate it had to end on one stroke,” Tunitis said. “If we don’t get the bid to the tournament, we will still be proud of how we played.” Penn State will now face top-seeded Michigan at 2 p.m. Sunday in the championship game as the Buckeyes will await their destiny. read more
