New Indiana Speed Test Will Put Data in the Right Hands

first_img Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News New Indiana Speed Test Will Put Data in the Right Hands SHARE Previous articleHAT Market Analysis for 6/2/21 with Tom Fritz of EFG GroupNext articleFarmer Share of Food Dollar May Grow Eric Pfeiffer Facebook Twitter By Eric Pfeiffer – Jun 2, 2021 Last week, Indiana Farm Bureau announced the launch of the Indiana Speed Test, a crowd-sourced internet speed test that focuses on enabling cost effective planning and deployment of broadband. This is similar to other speed tests you’ve performed from your cell phone or computer, but this test will take data and put it in the hands of decision makers who are looking to build out broadband services to unserved or underserved areas.All Hoosiers are encouraged to take the test. Katrina Hall, INFB’s senior director of public policy strategy and advocacy, says the speed test is safe and won’t collect personal data.“It does ask for your address, but that is converted to a GIS location and your address is not stored. There’s no other personal information and certainly nothing that you do not agree to as you go on to the speed test. It’s really pretty quick. It takes about a minute, and we encourage people to take this on the device that you use at home. Certainly, that could be your cell phone, but test it on your computer.”Hall says Indiana Farm Bureau is calling on all rural Hoosiers to take the test, but to also communicate with local officials how much they rely on quality internet service.“They need to know that you rely on it and not just for virtual learning or for watching Netflix. It’s an important part of agriculture going forward for precision agriculture, as well as just opportunities for e-commerce and the things that you do at your place. So, tell your own story.”The Indiana Speed Test can be found at infb.org/speedtest.

Jail sentences reduced on appeal against bosses of liberal daily Nanfang Dushi Bao

first_img May 7, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Jail sentences reduced on appeal against bosses of liberal daily Nanfang Dushi Bao News Organisation Help by sharing this information RSF_en As Wen Jiabao defends China’s reforms during a tour of Europe, authorities in Guangzhou have jailed three journalists from the reformist press including Cheng Yizhong. Two of them have been sentenced to prison terms of 11 and 12 years. April 27, 2021 Find out more News ChinaAsia – Pacific A Guangzhou appeal court has reduced prison sentences against managers of Nanfang Dushi Bao Yu Huafeng and Li Minying. Yu Huafeng, former general manager, was sentenced to eight years in prison, against 12 years imposed by the lower court. He is planning a further appeal. Li, a former editor, had his sentenced reduced from 11 to six years. The judges, quoted by the official Xinhua news agency, said the “first verdicts were based on clear facts and solid evidence. The verdict fitted the crime and the court procedure legal, but the punishment was relatively heavy.” The lawyer for the journalists, Xu Zhiyong, however said: “We all believe that this is an injustice.” Police in Guangzhou continue to hold former Nanfang Dushi Bao editor Cheng Yizhong, without trial in connection with the same case.________________________________________________________________07.05.2004Reporters Without Borders challenges Chinese prime minister about the case of daily Nanfang Dushi BaoReporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) appealed to Chinese prime minister Wen Jiabao to release three senior staff from the Chinese daily Nanfang Dushi Bao, including the celebrated journalist Cheng Yizhong.The international press freedom organisation challenged the Chinese premier to publicly explain the prison sentences against them as he toured European countries (Germany, Belgium, Italy, Britain and Ireland). His tour is designed to boost dialogue and co-operation with the EU and to advocate China’s reform programme.”One cannot come to Europe to defend reforms started in China while at the same time allowing three reforming journalists to be sentenced to heavy prison terms for publishing articles that upset the authorities,” said Reporters Without Borders in a letter to Chinese embassies in countries visited by the premier.The Nanfang Dushi Bao case damages the credibility of the Wen Jiabao government’s reform policy. The organisation also called on the governments of the European countries visited by Wen to raise the cases of the three journalists.The organisation is pressing for the release of journalists Yu Huafeng, Li Minying and Cheng Yizhong and an end to legal action against the newspaper’s former bosses.Since 20 March 2004, Cheng Yizhong, former editor-in-chief of Nanfang Dushi Bao (Southern Metropolis News), has been imprisoned without sentence by public security in Guangzhou. On the eve of his arrest, a people’s court in Dongshan, Guangdong province, sentenced former general manager Yu Huafeng and former editor Li Minying, to 12 and 11 years respectively for “corruption” and “embezzlement of public funds”.The prosecutor said that Yu Huafeng had stolen 100,000 yuan (nearly 10,000 euros) from the paper and shared 480,000 yuan (nearly 47,000 euros) among senior staff at the newspaper, whose advertising revenue reached nearly 100 million euros in 2003.The arrests were in fact linked to a series of investigations carried by the liberal Guangzhou newspaper, particularly on Sars and the death of a young graphic artist, Sun Zhigang, beaten to death in a Guangzhou police station. They were all sacked from the newspaper before being detained.This conspiracy by the local authorities, including Guangzhou police chief, Zhu Suisheng, against this brave daily aims to foster a climate of fear among Chinese journalists. Reporters Without Borders has spoken to several of them. They described themselves as “crushed” and “terrified” by the arrests of the three journalists.

BP

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. BPOn 17 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Shortlisted team for the tmp.worldwide Award for Outsourcing: Personnel Today Awards 2000In December 1999, BP entered a global agreement to outsource all transactional HR processes to Exult. This would be done through the introduction of a redesigned global HR process. Under the title of The Atlas Programme, the outsourcing deal would see the creation of myHR.net, a personalised web-based portal through which every employee could access HR information and services.The initiative was introduced for a number of reasons. First, the deal would mean BP could reduce the unit cost of HR administrative and transactional services. Additionally, there would be new capacity created for the delivery of HR services to every employee while BP’s own HR function could focus at a more strategic level of people management, enabling a closer alignment of company strategy and organisational capability. Unlike many organisations that have outsourced the administrative side of the HR function, BP chose to outsource its requirements to a single provider. Not only will Exult support BP through its own service centres, but it will also act as a service integrator, managing any contracts with other third party suppliers on behalf of BP.The initiative is expected to take three years for full global implementation. The programme is being delivered through the Atlas Project Team, which comprises subject matter and functional experts from both BP and Exult. The team is organised by region with functional teams – Process Transformation, myHR.net and so on – responsible for their specialities in all areas. As the project has progressed, team responsibilities and personnel, have altered to reflect the skills required at each stage.Crucially, the Change Management and Communications team has worked closely with BP business streams delivering workshops which ensure that all staff are aware of the transformation taking place within the company. At the same time, myHR.net has been designed and tested by HR managers from multiple business units. In this way the service would clearly be functional and practical for employees, while at the same time, those involved in this area would act as ambassadors for the service throughout the company.The myHR site includes myFuture – a career service which matches employees to new work or training opportunities and an Expat Tool which provides pay and conditions information for individuals considering foreign placements. In the future, information held by myHR will be integrated into other non-HR processes in the organisation offering increased efficiencies in other areas.The Atlas Programme is at the top of BP’s e-business agenda and is a key driver to the company’s global aspirations. When roll out is complete, the programme will affect all employees and a new standard will have been created for delivering HR services in the most effective and efficient wayCompany fact fileTeam The Atlas Project Team, BP and ExultNumber in HR team 50 including Exult in UK, embedded HR managersNumber of employees responsible for 100,000Main achievements The Atlas Programme will ultimately affect all heritage companies comprising BP – including Amoco, Arco and Burmah Castrol. This means covering over 100 countries. Statistics on the initial releases of myHR.net indicate that half of employees with web access have visited the site to browse or conduct HR business.Priorities for next 12 months Both in the UK and US, the challenge remains to transfer more transactional work to Exult. The team is also looking at the rest of Europe and the world for new contracts to extend the programme to these areas. Benefit plans and other HR functions will be further consolidated and standardised. Previous Article Next Articlelast_img read more

Limits on therapy treatments threaten seniors

first_imgDear Editor: Strokes, surgeries, and trauma from falls or other injuries sometimes result in patients needing extensive care by physical, occupational or speech therapists. But because of inaction by Congress, many seniors on Medicare are facing expensive out-of-pocket costs for treatments they need to remain independent.A failure by Congress to repeal a harsh limit on therapy treatments poses very real financial and medical threats to seniors already struggling from strokes or debilitating conditions like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Some could be forced to ration care. Others may simply not be able to afford as many therapy sessions as they need, putting them in danger of new injuries.This year, the annual limits are $2,010 for both physical therapy and speech-language pathology (SLP) combined, and a separate $2,010 for occupational therapy.AARP is urging Congress to promptly repeal the limit on therapy services so that millions of vulnerable older Americans and people with disabilities get vitally needed rehabilitation services.Rehabilitation services are critical for seniors to maintain their independence so they can remain in their homes. Therapy also helps to avoid costly nursing home care or hospitalizations that can bankrupt those who are already struggling with high health care costs.Seniors have worked hard and paid into Medicare their whole lives. Congress needs to immediately fix this harmful policy so seniors can get the rehabilitation services they need. Sincerely,Stephanie Hunsinger, State DirectorAARP New Jerseylast_img read more
