Tottenham Liverpool chase biggest win to drop loser tag for good

first_imgMadrid: Among the rewards for the Champions League winners on Saturday will be silverware, status and history but the greatest prize awaiting Liverpool or Tottenham might be an end to the agonising wait. Combined, it has been 18 years — seven for Liverpool, 11 for Tottenham — since either lifted a trophy, despite huge strides made in recent years under the much-praised Jurgen Klopp and Mauricio Pochettino. Klopp and Pochettino have been singled-out as two of Europe’s best coaches after crafting teams that reflect their personalities — Liverpool thrilling and fearless, Spurs brave and unrelenting. Also Read – We don’t ask for kind of tracks we get: Bowling coach ArunAnd while scepticism has greeted the perfection of Manchester City’s star-studded squad in England, approval has also followed Liverpool and Tottenham’s nurturing of youngsters. Trent Alexander-Arnold and Harry Winks came through the clubs’ youth systems while Andrew Robertson, Dele Alli and Kieran Trippier joined aged 24 or younger. All of them could start at the Wanda Metropolitano. But any admiration still comes with an asterisk. Liverpool’s last trophy was in 2012, a League Cup that remains their only success since they won the FA Cup in 2006. Also Read – Bastian Schweinsteiger announces retirement, could join Germany set-upAnd Tottenham’s barren spell goes further back to the League Cup in 2008, which was their first trophy since winning the same competition in 1999. Pochettino has tended to bristle at suggestions his team have a habit for coming close but failing to get over the line. When asked in January if the club needed a trophy, he said: “I don’t agree with that, it’s good for the ego. But in reality the most important thing is to build a team that is always going to be in the top four.” The expectations are higher at Liverpool, where Klopp’s vow to win something within four years of taking charge reaches its end-point this weekend. “It didn’t happen yet,” said Klopp in April. “How long it will take I have no clue.” Klopp’s also denied a personal need for silverware after having lost six cup finals in a row as coach, three of them with Liverpool. “I don’t think that way at all,” he said earlier this month. “In football if you want to win you have to accept that there are occasions when you also might lose.” The pressure on Liverpool may be more intense, not just because of their success-laden past but because of a craving for satisfaction after a season in which they amassed 96 points in the Premier League but still fell just short of champions City. They will be favourites, having beaten Tottenham home and away already this season and with their experience of last year’s final in Kiev. In the Spurs squad, only Toby Alderweireld has played on this stage, losing with Atletico Madrid in 2014. For a shot of belief, Pochettino might instead turn to Harry Kane, who has declared himself fit after recovering from an ankle injury. Kane has not played a competitive match since April 9 and Tottenham have survived without their star striker, even if a storming run in the Champions League belied a collapse in form domestically. If he is fit, Kane’s goal threat means he will start, most likely at the expense of Lucas Moura, despite the Brazilian’s dizzying hat-trick against Ajax in the semi-final. Liverpool’s own front man, Roberto Firmino, is also expected to play after sitting out the last three matches with a groin strain. Harder to predict will be Klopp’s selection in midfield, where he must choose three from James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and Fabinho. Considerably more than the 32,000 ticket-holding fans were predicted to descend on Madrid, with police deploying “unprecedented security” around the final, involving drones to monitor behaviour and 4,700 personnel. When the Spanish capital was picked as host, there was an added lure for Real Madrid, who might have defended the title in their own city, and Atletico, who could have snatched it off them at their own home ground. Instead, after Barcelona crashed out, Spain were left with no European finalists for the only second time in 10 years.last_img read more

Group of 77 developing nations have crucial role in banishing poverty says

“In all of our efforts, let us be guided by the shared resolve to create a world where people live free from want and fear,” he told the annual ministerial meeting of the so-called G-77, held on the sidelines of the General Assembly’s General Debate. “Today, I am counting on the G-77 and China to help us move on two tracks: first, honouring, as fast as we possibly can, our existing commitments and agreements; and second, looking ahead to the period after 2015, when we need to set new targets and aim for fresh goals,” he said of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that seek to slash hunger and poverty, maternal and infant mortality, a host of diseases and lack of access to education and health care, all by 2015.The Group, established in 1964 by 77 States, now counts more than 130 countries, some two thirds of the UN membership and over 60 per cent of the world’s population. Mr. Ban noted that a year ago, a UN summit on the MDGs reaffirmed the world’s commitment to collective action that works. “But we still need to do more to boost official development assistance (ODA), facilitate technical assistance, and share best practices,” he said, warning that despite great progress “we are lagging.“The wealth gap is growing. More and more people find their jobs at risk. Fewer people can find decent work. It is especially tough for young people,” he added, stressing the urgent need to lay out a path for even greater advances to succeed the MDGs after 2015.“Even as we try to accelerate progress towards the MDGs, we have to begin planning a new generation of sustainable development goals to build on the success of the MDGs. The MDGs were visionary and ambitious when they were adopted [in 2000], but even then we knew they went only half-way towards our ultimate goal of a world free of poverty.”Listing the many challenges facing the world, including uncertainties in the global economy, increased volatility in international financial markets, rising food prices worldwide, famine in the Horn of Africa, and natural disasters threatening security and development, Mr. Ban paid particular attention to the problems confronting young people.“Youth across the world lack the opportunities they deserve. Many are understandably frustrated,” he said. “Their anxiety can lead to unrest, but with help and support, it can also be channelled into a force for positive change. We have to respond to the aspirations of the world’s youth, and all people who are seeking better economic, social, environmental and political conditions.”General Assembly President Nassir Abdulaziz Al-Nasser noted the G-77 included emerging nations whose resilient growth during the current global financial crisis had kept the world’s economy from slumping into recession, while a large number of members are also considered the most vulnerable countries.“And you continue to remind us of something fundamental: that there can be no sustainable peace without sustainable development and global prosperity,” he told the meeting.“This year, we come together at a critical juncture in the world’s history. World leaders are faced with never-before-seen challenges: extraordinary events in the Arab world, a worsening global economic and financial crisis, increasingly frequent and severe natural disasters and the adverse impacts of climate change, and extreme famine in the Horn of Africa,” he added, pledging to working with every Member State, to build bridges for a united global partnership.“We will need strong collaboration and consensus-building to move forward the Assembly’s heavy agenda this session, in particular on economic and financial issues.” 23 September 2011From achieving current development goals to securing even more ambitious targets, the bloc of developing nations known as the Group of 77 and China has a pivotal role to play in achieving the ultimate goal of a world free from poverty, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. read more

Televangelist accused of funding IS members trip to Sri Lanka

Sources said the decision to was taken after NIA claimed to have seized documents which showed that IS recruit Abu Anas had received Rs 80,000 from IRF as scholarship in October 2015. (Colombo Gazette) Sources said investigators had so far identified 25 bank accounts in four banks, which were regularly used for transactions by Naik and his companies.NIA has written to the scheduled banks to identify all the companies/individuals which had transactions with Naik’s IRF and its associate organisations.The move is aimed at financially choking Naik and his organisations after the controversial televangelist was booked under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act (UAPA). NIA has written to banks asking them to freeze accounts belonging to Naik, his NGO Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) and other associate companies, Indian media reports said. “Ashfaque’s father Kader claims that while leaving for Sri Lanka in February this year, Ashfaque told him that Qureshi was funding the tour. In all, 21 people were attending a small course on ‘Learning Quran’. Qureshi had also paid money to make their passports,” said an official.According to Kader, on February 23, Ashfaque left for Sri Lanka, where he stayed in Jaffna. The probe being carried out by the National Investigation Agency (NIA), alleged that Islamic State (IS) recruit Ashfaque Majeed’s father had revealed that Arshi Qureshi, guest manager with the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), had allegedly funded Ashfaque and his fellow recruits’ Sri Lanka trip. Televangelist Zakir Naik has been accused of funding a visit to Sri Lanka by Islamic State (IS) members.The Maharashtra Police is set to register a first information report (FIR) against Naik, after the state law and judiciary department sent in its opinion that a case may be made out against him for inciting enmity. read more

Highland Copper feasibility sees initital Copperwood production from early 2021

first_imgHighland Copper Company has announced positive results of a feasibility study for its 100%-owned Copperwood project located in Gogebic County, in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan, US.The Feasibility Study was conducted by, and under the supervision of, G Mining Services Inc (GMSI) in collaboration with SGS Canada Inc (Lakefield), Lycopodium Minerals Canada Ltd, Golder Associates and Foth Infrastructure and Environment. The study provides a comprehensive overview of the Copperwood Project and defines an economically feasible, technically and environmentally sound project.Highlights:– Initial capital expenditures of $245 million, net of pre-production revenue of $30 million– Life-of-mine (“LOM”) cash costs of $1.53/lb, including royalties and $1.29/lb in the first five years of production– Proven and Probable Reserves of 25.4 Mt @ 1.43% Cu and 3.83 g/t Ag, containing 801.8 Mlbs of copper and 3.1 Moz of silver– Additional Mineral Resources of 49.9 My @ 1.15 % Cu and 3.42 g/t Ag in the Inferred category, containing 1.3 Blbs of copper and 5.5 Moz of silver using a 1% Cu cut-off– Average annual LOM payable copper production of 61.7 M lbs and 100,570 oz of silver– Initial copper production expected in early 2021Highland and its consultants have identified a number of opportunities to increase the value of the Copperwood Project. These include upgrading inferred mineral resources, increasing mine productivity utilising innovative continuous mining technologies, conducting further geotechnical studies to optimise ore recovery and minimise mining dilution, reviewing tailings disposal alternatives, and conducting additional testing to maximise metallurgical recoveries.It is proposed to mine the deposit with a conventional highly mechanised, drill and blast room-and- pillar mining method. The method consists of the extraction of a series of entries and cross-cuts in the ore, leaving pillars in place to support the back. The entries, cross cuts and pillars have been sized using geotechnical analysis of the local host rocks, and experience from other mines sharing similar ground conditions.The mine will be accessed via covered box-cut to establish a portal at the mine entrance from the surface, located at the central-west part of the deposit. The mine consists of two mining sectors: West and East. The western part, being higher grade with a thicker mineralised zone, will be mined in priority.The mine is split into panels, which consist of at least 12 rooms that provide multiple headings where all activities of the mining cycle can be done in parallel to achieve high productivities, as opposed to activities in series as is the case in a single heading. The mining cycle consists of drilling, explosives loading and blasting, mucking, scaling and bolting.Mining operations are planned with two 10-hour shifts per day, 360 days per year to achieve a production target of 2.4 Mt per year, or 6,600 t per day. To achieve this production, a total of 7 to 9 panels must be in production at any given time.The mining operation begins with drilling of the working face, which is accomplished with two- boom hydraulic-electric jumbo drills. Each round is drilled 4.25 m (14 ft) in length with an effective break of 4.00 m. The rooms are 6.1 m wide with a height that varies according to the ore column thickness. The height dimension dictates the productivity, which varies from panel to panel.Mucking will be done with 10 t LHD units that will load muck at the mine face and transport it to the conveyor loading point established for the production panel. The LHD performance will be a function of dip of the stope and distance. The conveyor loading points will be regularly moved as production advances in the panel to be less than 250 m from the headings.Scaling of the rooms is planned with a smaller low-profile LHD unit equipped with a scaling arm that rubs the roof to remove any loose rocks.Bolting will be done by a mechanised bolter to install roof support and wall bolts. In the stopes, 1.8 m rebar bolts are required on a 1.2 m by 1.2 m pattern with wire mesh. In addition, 1.8 m friction bolts are planned in the pillars (i.e. walls) on a 1.5 m by 1.5 m pattern with wire mesh. At room intersection rebar bolt length is increased to 2.4 m.Highland continues to study the use of tailings as back-fill in the open stopes. If this approach is selected, it would provide cost savings for tailing disposal and closure costs.Ventilation for the mine will be provided by a 400 m3/s fresh air raise and two exhaust raises at the eastern and western end of the mine. The dewatering system will consist of six pumping stations capable of evacuating 2,220 l/min of underground water inflow and mine water.last_img read more

Ford Focus To Have Recycled Interior In 2012

first_imgFord is taking a few extra steps to make the 2012 edition of the Focus a little more green by introducing recycled materials in the vehicles’ interior. The recycled cotton will be used for the car’s carpet backing and sound absorption material and will be available in models across both North America and Europe.“Ford is continually looking for greener alternatives,” Carrie Majeske, product sustainability manager, said in a statement. “One of our key goals is to use more recycled or renewable materials without compromising performance or durability. Recycled content is a way to divert waste from landfills and reduce the impact of mining virgin material.”AdChoices广告The cotton used will be taken from discarded clothing like blue jeans, and each car will feature the equivalent of about two pairs of jeans worth of cotton. Not only does this mean that Ford is able to reuse these items so that they don’t end up in a landfill, but it also means that the company doesn’t have to grow any cotton in order to get the material it needs. And it looks like this may just be the beginning.“The use of recycled clothing is one step, but what else are people discarding that could be used in our vehicles? Ford is determined to find out,” Majeske said.Via Autoblog Greenlast_img read more

Weather Eye Storms headed our way though weekend may prove tolerable

first_imgAs we approach mid-December, the weather will be more typical of the season. A large cold low in the Gulf of Alaska will spin one storm after another, with that atmospheric “river” heading our way. Initially, rainfall amounts will be heaviest over Vancouver Island and the Olympics, with many inches of rain in those areas. Mild tropical air in the mix will keep our snow levels high and produce wind at times this week. Storm warnings were in effect along the ocean beaches for winds of more than 60 mph. Seas will run 20 feet or higher. Be cautious if you intend to do some storm watching! It will be dangerous along the beaches, for sure. Stay back from the water’s edge.We had a fairly decent weekend. It was nice to get out and about. With a little luck, we may end up with similar conditions this weekend. Of course, it will be cooler with lots of fog. Good practice weather for Rudolph.The highs most of the weekend will be in the 55-60 degree range here. Coastal areas were in the low 60s Monday. My nature observations this week: I found yet another stink bug enjoying my warm abode over the weekend. He was not so lucky. My backyard squirrel hasn’t been seen for days now. Maybe he’s cuddled up in a hollow tree somewhere eating those secured walnuts? One lonely frog continues to croak every night in the woods behind me. Not quite ready for winter’s slumber, I guess.I haven’t seen the usual pair of ducks enjoying the standing water in our overflow drainage area; maybe they’ve moved on to tread better waters? So as nature’s critters slow down, the weather part will pick up. Enjoy the sound of the pelting rain and wind along with the joyous sounds of the holidays. We’ll chat Thursday.

Watch a pack of SpotMini robot dogs tow a huge truck like

first_imgThe SpotMini has just upped the stakes.  Boston Dynamics Ten SpotMini robots have demonstrated their strength by hauling a truck across a parking lot. Boston Dynamics, the company behind robots like the SpotMini, Spot and Atlas, posted the video on YouTube on Tuesday. Boston Dynamics wasn’t immediately available for comment but said in the video’s description that the robots are being developed for a range of applications. Last May, the company’s president, Marc Raibert, said SpotMini robots should be ready for sale this year. The SpotMini is a four-legged robot that handles objects, climbs stairs and is capable of working in office, home and outdoor settings. The robot can carry about 31 pounds, weighs about 66 pounds and stands at just 2.6 feet. SpotMini has a battery life of about 90 minutes, depending on the task. Boston Dynamics says the SpotMini is the quietest robot it’s built.  Robots,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not.

How toddler Sherin Mathews died will remain a mystery says her

first_imgDALLAS: Though a US court sentenced the Indian-American adoptive father of Sherin Mathews to life, a neighbour of the Indian toddler, still shocked by the tragedy, said what really happened in the family’s garage on that fateful night in October 2017 would remain a mystery. Omair Siddiqi lived just one street over from the Mathews in Richardson, in suburban Dallas. He has been following the sensational case from the beginning when it broke out on October 7, 2017. Also Read – EAM Jaishankar calls on European Parliament President David Sassoli Advertise With Us Prosecutors argued the 39-year-old Wesley Mathews killed Sherin in October 2017. Police had initially arrested his wife Sini Mathews in connection with the death of 3-year-old Indian toddler. Sini, a registered nurse, was charged with child abandonment. Her case was dismissed in March this year after prosecutors said they could not prove it beyond a reasonable doubt. Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us Siddiqi recalled the moment inside the Dallas courtroom when Mathews was sentenced to life in prison after an unanimous decision by a 12-member jury. “I went numb inside. I had tears of joy. And it was powerful. I honestly did not expect a life sentence,” said Siddiqi. Still, the process has left emotional scars. Siddiqi was part of a neighborhood team that searched for Sherin Mathews for 15 days. Advertise With Us “We still don’t know what happened to baby Sherin in that garage that night and I don’t think we’ll ever know,” he was quoted as saying by nbcdfw.com. Reacting to Wednesday’s judgement, the Richardson Police Department released a statement, welcoming the sentencing. “The investigation surrounding the death of Sherin Mathews has weighed heavily on the members of our Department and our community. “We feel justice has been served with today’s verdict of life in prison given to Wesley Mathews by a jury of his peers. We would like to thank the many law enforcement agencies and civilian partners for the resources and time spent on this case. We will always remember Sherin Mathews,” the police said. The judgement also evoked some reaction on Twitter. “Sherin Mathews deserved better than Wesley and Sini. Sini walks and Wesley is allowed to plead to a lesser charge. When did Dallas County DA become so soft on child abusers, neglecters and murderers? Unbelievable,” wrote one user on Twitter. “First his wife walks and now this??? Where’s the justice for Sherin Mathews?,” asked another. “Pity that she’s not being held liable too,” said another tweet. Mathews testified this week that he wasn not ready to believe his daughter was dead. He said he believed if her body were near, she might come back to him, much like Lazarus resurrected in the Bible. Mathews claimed that Sherin accidentally choked to death on milk. He initially told police that Sherin went missing after he put her outside their home at 3 am in Richardson, Texas because she would not drink her milk. When he checked in on her 15 minutes later, Mathews said Sherin was missing. He later admitted she died when he “physically assisted” her in drinking the milk and got chocked. Sherin’s badly decomposed body was found 15 days later in a culvert by a cadaver dog. Mathews told the jurors that he regrets his actions the night his daughter died and realises he could have done more to help her. “It’s just not fair that my heart still beats like my child’s heart is not,” he testified after pleading guilty on Monday to a lesser charge of injury to a child in Sherin’s death. He was originally charged with capital murder. Prosecutor Jason Fine said Mathews should have been Sherin’s protector. He should have treated her body with more respect. “Good dads don’t dump their daughters in sewage drains,” Fine said.

Gunmen attack Chinese consulate in Pakistan kill 4

first_imgPakistani security personnel stand next to burned out vehicles in front of the Chinese consulate after an attack in Karachi on 23 November 2018. At least two policemen were killed when unidentified gunmen stormed the Chinese consulate in the Pakistani port city of Karachi on November 23, officials said. Photo: AFPFour people were killed on Friday when gunmen armed with hand grenades and a suicide vest stormed the Chinese consulate in the Pakistani city of Karachi, officials said, with the attack claimed by a separatist group which branded Beijing “an oppressor”.Pakistani authorities said that security forces had secured the area after the attack, the latest assault on Chinese nationals in the country, where Beijing has poured billions of dollars into one of the largest projects in its massive Belt and Road programme.China “strongly condemned” the attack and asked Pakistan to take measures to ensure the safety of Chinese citizens and institutions in the country, as well as the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) mega-project.Three gunmen tried to enter the consulate in the southern port city, but were intercepted by guards at a checkpoint, Karachi police chief Ameer Sheikh told AFP.”They were holding Kalashnikovs. First, they hurled a small (grenade) and then started firing,” said Allah Bakhsh, a guard at a nearby house who witnessed the attack.Police officials said two of their personnel were killed, along with a father and son from Quetta, the capital of Balochistan, who were seeking Chinese visas and were caught in the crossfire.At least one of the attackers was wearing a suicide vest which did not detonate, another senior police official said.Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi told reporters in Islamabad that “all the terrorists have been eliminated”, and that all 21 staff at the consulate during the attack had been taken to a safe location.”Situation under control,” the military’s media wing added in a statement.- China is an ‘oppressor’ -The attack was claimed by a separatist militant group from Pakistan’s southwestern province of Balochistan, which is at the centre of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, the major Chinese project in the country.”We have been seeing the Chinese as an oppressor, along with Pakistani forces,” the spokesman for the Balochistan Liberation Army (BLA), Geand Baloch, told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location, adding they were “destroying the future of Balochistan”.The BLA later emailed a statement to media in which it said the attack was “aimed at making it clear that China’s military expansionism on Baloch soil will not be tolerated”.It warned the Chinese to leave or “be prepared for continued attacks”.The group is just one of the militant outfits operating in Balochistan, Pakistan’s largest and poorest province, which is rife with ethnic, sectarian and separatist insurgencies.Residents of the resource-rich province, which borders Iran and Afghanistan, have long complained that it does not receive a fair share of the profits made from its mineral wealth.Prime minister Imran Khan said Friday’s attack would not undermine the Pakistan-China relationship, which he described in a statement as “mightier than Himalayas and deeper than Arabian Sea”.Also on Friday a bomb hidden in a carton of vegetables killed at least 20 people at a marketplace in Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region. Dozens more people were wounded, with fears the toll could rise.- Chinese investment -China, one of Pakistan’s closest allies, has poured billions into the South Asian country in recent years as part of CPEC, a massive infrastructure project that seeks to connect its western province Xinjiang with the Arabian Sea port of Gwadar in Balochistan.The project is one of the largest in Beijing’s “One Belt One Road” initiative, comprising a network of roads and sea routes involving 65 countries.Pakistan sees the project as a “gamechanger”, but it presents an enormous challenge in a country plagued by weak institutions, endemic corruption and a range of insurgencies in areas slated to host the corridor.The subject of economic dividends from CPEC is extremely sensitive in some of those areas — particularly in Balochistan.Since the beginning of the project militants have repeatedly attacked construction sites, blowing up numerous gas pipelines and trains, and targeted Chinese workers.In August this year three Chinese nationals were among six wounded in a suicide attack on a bus transporting Chinese engineers working in Balochistan, in an attack that was also claimed by the BLA.The Pakistani military has been targeting insurgencies in the province since 2004, and has been repeatedly accused by international rights groups of abuses there.Islamabad regularly accuses its eastern neighbour India of funding and arming Baloch separatists, and of targeting development projects in the province, particularly CPEC.India’s foreign ministry swiftly condemned Friday’s attack in a statement, saying: “There can be no justification whatsoever for any act of terrorism”.last_img read more

Rohingyas can be a threat to countrys security PM

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina is addressing her valedictory speech in the 21st (budget) session of the current parliament on 12 July. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said the security and stability of Bangladesh could be hampered if the displaced Rohingya people cannot be repatriated soon, reports UNB.”If we can’t send them back soon, there’s an apprehension that our security and stability will be at stake,” she told parliament while replying to a tabled question from Awami League MP Nur Mohammad (Kishoreganj-2).The prime minister said, “It’s very tough for us to arrange food, clothes and accommodation for over 1.1 million Myanmar nationals for an indefinite time.”This is why the government has been making diplomatic efforts to find out a permanent solution since the very beginning of the crisis for sending the forcibly-displaced Rohingyas back to their homeland, she said.Sheikh Hasina said the displaced people, deprived of basic rights by the Myanmar authorities, are naturally suffering from dissatisfaction.Noting that any repatriation process is a very complicated and lengthy process, she said Bangladesh and the international community are exerting pressure on Myanmar to create a congenial environment in Rakhine state.Unfortunately, she said, it is true there has been no visible progress in the situation due to a rigid stance of Myanmar government.Besides, Myanmar is involved in carrying out propaganda in the international arena that the Rohingya repatriation is being delayed for the noncooperation of Bangladesh, she added.The prime minister said Bangladesh repeatedly raised voice in different fora that Myanmar is responsible for taking back its all the displaced people, and Myanmar will have to take the initiative in this regard.She said Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a total of three bilateral agreements. The repatriation process would be completed within two years according to an agreement out of three. “But the Myanmar government has delayed the process by creating in many ways.”In reply to a question from treasury bench member M Abdul Latif (Chattogram-11), the prime minister said the government has set a target to create some 15 million jobs in the next five years.She said the present government has taken various measures to transform the young generation into human resources by creating jobs in the country in line with strategies and targets of the 7thfive-year plan (2016-20).last_img read more

Uber Lights Up Drivers Windshields to Help Customers Find Their Rides

first_imgDecember 3, 2015 Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Register Now » 2 min readcenter_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Uber is giving its customers a guiding light. The popular ride-hailing company is rolling out LED light strips on drivers’ windshields to help riders in Seattle identify their pickups.The bright, new initiative, simply called SPOT, aims to reduce wait times and to make it easier for customers to find their Ubers in dense traffic and in the dark. Announced earlier this week, the feature rolls out throughout this month in the Emerald City on a test basis, with the company already equipping an undisclosed number of drivers there with the innovative devices.Related: Uber Is Eating Up Taxi Rides in New York CityHow it works: Directly applied to windshields, the long, skinny light strips glow in multiple colors (blue, green, orange, pink, purple or yellow). When a rider requests a trip and is paired with a SPOT-enabled driver, she can select the color the driver’s light strip will display using a color wheel within the Uber app. When the driver arrives for pickup, the light strip glows in the selected color. Conversely, riders can hold up their phones to display the matching light strip color to quickly show their drivers where they are.Uber, repeatedly plagued by customer complaints about surge pricing and drivers’ bad behavior, frames SPOT as its latest “experiment” in its “ongoing effort to make Uber pickups as seamless as possible.” But is it bright enough to shine some positive light on the controversial company?   Related: Court Denies Uber’s Request to Appeal Class-Action Status of U.S. Driver Lawsuitlast_img read more
