Research portal open to students, faculty

crnksrcbu

first_imgThe Gartner Research portal, an information technology research tool, is now accessible to all students, faculty and staff on Notre Dame’s campus, said Peggy Rowland, senior director of Customer Support Services for the Office of Information Technologies (OIT). The main function of the portal is to provide information on the pervasiveness of the latest trends in technology, Rowland said. “When we look at a new technology [for the University], we want to see who else is using it,” she said. Gartner uses worldwide trends to place existing and emerging technological tools in one of five phases on a “hype cycle,” which graphically measures expected popularity and utility of technologies over time. The “hype cycle” predicts which technologies will be important in the future and which technologies will soon be obsolete, Rowland said. “We don’t want to invest in a technology just because it’s being hyped or marketed … we want to use it because it meets a business need,” Rowland said. “We also don’t want to ignore [new technology] just because it doesn’t meet our early expectations. So [Gartner] helps us be selectively aggressive, but not invest in something that may not pan out.” The information provided by Gartner Research is particularly useful for faculty trying to identify trends in student engagement and learning, Rowland said.  “We look at trends. Are students bringing desktops to campus? Not so much. Are students bringing laptops to campus? Yeah kind of, but almost every student has a smart phone,” she said. “Students are into instant communication … email is even too slow for them.” Because of this trend, Gartner is researching educational technologies that focus on using smartphones and media tablets for mobile learning, Rowland said.  “A flexible environment is the [current] trend,” she said. “The traditional rows of desks and seats don’t interest [students] anymore.” The newly acquired University-wide license also allows students to directly access data from the Gartner Research portal.  Rowland said students could access the portal through InsideND for independent research in technology and business trends. “The University libraries are going to be in partnership with OIT in supporting Gartner,” she said. “The research librarians will be helping faculty and students do the actual research on the Gartner website.” Rowland said a few administrative departments at Notre Dame have already used research from Gartner to select useful and cost-effective analytical investment tools. “This [portal] is a great opportunity for faculty, staff and students to have access to this much data and information right at their fingertips without having to do the individual research themselves,” she said.last_img read more

Rutland’s Gift-of-Life Marathon blood drive second highest ever nationally

crnksrcbu

first_imgVermonters of all walks of life turned out for the ninth-annual Gift-of-Life Marathon today, donating 1,855 pints of blood but missing the national one-day community blood drive record of 1,968 pints. ‘It was an extraordinary day and an amazing display of community spirit and determination,’ said Central Vermont Public Service spokesman Steve Costello, one of the organizers.  ‘The national record didn’t fall, but this was the largest per-capita blood drive in US history, the second-largest ever, and the region should be proud of what it accomplished.’ Organizers from CVPS, WJJR and the American Red Cross set their sights on the record within days of it being set, and amped up recruiting to high school and colleges students and residents of the towns surrounding Rutland.  On Tuesday, students and senior citizens, blue and white collar workers and local residents and visitors alike poured into the Paramount Theatre, American Legion Post 31, and the College of St. Joseph gymnasium throughout the day Tuesday for a run at the national mark set this fall in Manchester, NH. Hundreds of Red Cross employees and volunteers from across Rutland County ushered them through the process, fed them a hearty meal, and sent them on their way with gift bags stuffed with dozens of items from local businesses and non-profits. ‘I am so proud of the greater Rutland community,’ said Terry Jaye, program manager at WJJR and Catamount Radio.  ‘We collected around 1,800 pints in a city of about 16,000 people, which says so much about the determination and kinship of the people in this region.’ Jaye’s radio partner, Nanci Gordon, said the event demonstrated strength of character few communities could match. ‘From the businesses that donated 2,500 gift bags items each to the dozens that gave employees time off to donate, provided in-kind donations or helped promote the drive, it took a collaboration of literally hundreds of people to make this happen,’  Gordon said.  ‘The camaraderie and spirit of cooperation demonstrated today is even more important than the goal of breaking the record.’ The Gift-of-Life Marathon began in 2003, when the Red Cross asked CVPS to host a third annual employee blood drive due to shrinking supplies.  CVPS countered with the idea of a mega-drive, and partnered with Jaye, Gordon and WJJR to promote it.  The first drive collected 368 pints; the last three broke the New England record, beating Boston each time.  This year, all five Catamount Radio stations broadcast live from the drive. ‘We never dreamed the drive would become such a rallying post for the community,’ Costello said.  ‘It has become an annual symbol of the good in Rutland and Rutland County, and one of the most collaborative efforts anywhere. CVPS 12.20.2011last_img read more

Wake up! These three things are keeping you tired

crnksrcbu

first_imgThere are days when I’m filled with energy, ready to take on the day. And then there are some days where no matter what, I’m sleepy. Are you habitually sluggish and in need of an energy boost? Consider these three things you may be doing that are keeping you tired and whether certain simple changes can perk you up.Not eating enoughSwimsuit season is around the corner and many of us feel the need to drop some weight. Remember that your body needs certain nutrients throughout the day to stay healthy and alert. Just because you’re trying to lose weight, doesn’t mean you should cut out things your body needs to be effective. Instead, look into certain simple diets to help you shed the pounds, while still allowing you to enjoy eating.Strange sleep scheduleIt can be difficult to go to sleep at the exact same time every day. Sometimes you want to stay up and binge on Netflix. Other times your children can’t stay asleep so your nighttime routine is out of whack. The key to feeling rested the next day is doing the best you can to limit inconsistent bedtimes. It’s not always easy but the more structure you have, the more appreciative your body will be.Avoiding exerciseWhen you’re sleepy and want to relax, the last thing you’ll feel motivated to do is exercise. If you can muster the strength and get moving, trust me, you’ll be glad you did. I’m one who doesn’t care to exercise, but when I do, I feel a great deal better. Working out may be hard to initiate but the health benefits are undisputed. So whether it’s heading to the gym, the outdoor track, or simply a nice walk through the neighborhood, take time out of your day to stay active. Making this a part of your regular routine is a sure-fire way to feel less tired in the days to come.Save 55SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Wendy Moody Wendy Moody is a Senior Editor with CUInsight.com.

New Law on the provision of services in tourism at a public hearing

crnksrcbu

first_imgThe tourism ministry launched a third public hearing, after Rulebook on classification and categorization of objects which would enable the so-called Robinson accommodation in family farms and households and Law on Residence Taxes, initiated a public debate on the new Law on the Provision of Services in Tourism.According to the Ministry of Tourism, with the aim of further simplifying and equalizing the conditions for the provision of services in tourism, the Ministry of Tourism has prepared a draft proposal for the Law on the provision of services in tourism, which was put up for public discussion today. The main changes relate to the harmonization of the Act with Directive (EU) 2015/2302 and the provision of tourist guide services and business in agencies, and opinions, suggestions and comments from the public will be collected through the e-Consulting portal https://esavjetovanja.gov.hr/ECon/MainScreen?entityId=5594 until July 26, 2017.The most comprehensive changes relate to the harmonization of laws with Directive (EU) 2015/2302, which is the obligation of all members of the European Union by 1 January 2018. In particular, extensive changes are proposed in the consumer protection segment, especially in the code online business, in a way that creates the need for greater transparency and legal certainty for travelers and traders. Thus, for example, the Draft Proposal of the Act details the mandatory content of the Package Travel Agreement and provides passengers with special protection in the event of insolvency of the travel organizer. “By amending the law, we want to harmonize the provision of services in tourism, but also make business even more efficient, transparent and simple, and at the same time enable greater professionalism and raising the quality of service provision. In addition, these changes will contribute to increasing the diversity and development of the tourist offer and enable more effective suppression of the gray economy, better consumer protection, higher employment and creating conditions for access to favorable financing of projects involving the provision of some legally covered tourist services. further strengthen the overall competitiveness of Croatian tourism” stressed Tourism Minister Gary Cappelli.Regarding the provision of tourist guide services, it is proposed to introduce changes in the concept of the professional exam. Namely, the professional exam is currently taken by counties, and consists of a general and a special part. These changes propose the laying of a general part for the entire territory of the Republic of Croatia and a special part for protected units (localities) by counties, which will provide domestic guides with much wider business opportunities. It also regulates the provision of tourist guide services to citizens of another Contracting State to the Treaty on the European Economic Area and the Swiss Confederation on a temporary or occasional basis, in such a way that it can provide tourist guide services in the Republic of Croatia, except in or in protected areas. , which equates the position of these tourist guides with Croatian tourist guides who have passed only the general part of the professional exam. Furthermore, it is proposed to authorize the Minister of Tourism to prescribe, with the prior opinion of the Minister responsible for culture and nature protection, a rulebook for a list of protected sites (localities) that would be narrower than the current list of tourist sites (localities) by counties, which would not include public areas, city squares, forests, parks and the like. Currently, protected tourist units are prescribed very broadly by the Ordinance on the list of tourist units (localities), which acts by limiting the possibility of providing services for those guides who have passed only the general part of the exam.Regarding the business of travel agencies, the obligation of only one employed business manager is proposed for all premises in which he operates, and not for each branch as it is currently. Also, the new proposal additionally prescribes in more detail the forms of tourist offer that have so far been insufficiently regulated or not regulated at all by law in health, congress, nautical tourism, family farming, tourist services of active and adventure tourism, car rental services. (rent-a-car) and tourist diving services.The changes also refer to the reduction of misdemeanor penalties, ie prescribing the possibility for service providers to eliminate irregularities and deficiencies identified in inspections without punishment, but also to the reduction of administrative obstacles in business.In the middle of the tourist season, three laws are changed through a public debate Get involved in the public debate, now is the opportunity, it will be too late later. Changes to the Law as well as reduction and simplification of all other administrative barriers are certainly necessary, but changing the Laws and opening public hearings / counseling during the tourist season when all tourist workers are busy with guests is certainly not good because they cannot participate and prepare quality reasoned advice and suggestions.Get involved in the public debate hereRelated news:THE MINISTRY OF TOURISM PROPOSES THE PROVISION OF ROBINSON ACCOMMODATION SERVICES ON FAMILIES AND HOUSEHOLDSTHE LAW ON RESIDENCE TAXES IS CHANGED.

Dutch police uncover ‘torture’ containers used by criminals

crnksrcbu

first_imgDutch police found an “underworld prison” with a torture chamber hidden inside seven shipping containers following a huge hack of a Europe-wide criminal phone system, officials said Tuesday.The torture cell was kitted out with a dentist’s chair along with gruesome equipment including pruning shears, a saw, scalpels and pliers, Dutch police said.Six suspects were arrested after armed police raided a warehouse with the containers using information from a Franco-Dutch operation to infiltrate the EncroChat encrypted phone system. One container, referred to as the “treatment room” by criminals in tapped conversations was kitted out “with a dentist’s chair and straps to the arm and feet rests,” police said.Police recovered pruning shears, loppers, a saw, scalpels, pliers, handcuffs, finger cuffs and masking tape, saying the implements were “to torture victims or in any case, to put them under pressure”.Dutch police chief Jannine van den Berg said the discovery of the cells came after French and Dutch police hacked the EncroChat network, which was announced last week along with the arrest of around 800 people around Europe.”We already announced then that there was more to come. The discovery of this underworld prison is an example of this,” she said.Topics : “Six served as prison cells in which people could have been tied up and one other container had the sole purpose of being a torture chamber,” said Andy Kraag, head of Dutch police’s central investigations division.A video supplied by police showed armed officers raiding the premises, situated near the southern Dutch city of Bergen op Zoom, south of Rotterdam.The containers were soundproof and covered inside with tin foil in what police believe was a bid to make them invisible to thermal imaging cameras. All had handcuffs installed to the floor and the ceiling.The kidnappings of the people destined for the cells were planned with “great precision”, police said, involving several teams, weapons, and fake police clothes, vans, stop signs and bullet proof vests.last_img read more
