Britains first unmanned trains spark safety row as worries raised about rowdy

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Britain’s first unmanned trains have sparked a safety row as politicians and union officials voiced concerns about football crowds on match days.The new Glasgow Subway trains were announced to much fanfare this week, designed to be driverless and completely unstaffed by 2021. As well as having no drivers, they will also have no door staff.While some lauded this as the future of transport, others worried that passenger safety was not being prioritised.Pat McIlvogue, a regional officer for the Unite union, said there were worries about overcrowding and rowdy passenger behaviour on match days.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––He told The Telegraph: “Match days are a well-used situation and how they’re going to manage the influx of traffic and people piling into doors when the doors are shut, what happens then?“Who is going to operate the doors and manage any situations that happen? If there’s circumstances when there are crowds at football matches and other events – how are they going to deal with that if a situation happens on the train and it needs to be halted?“The move to driverless trains could be the first major signs in our transport sector showing the effects automation will have on the future of work, the impacts of which must be fully considered.”Andrew Boff, a Conservative member of the London Assembly, agreed and said he would not want unmanned trains to operate in London.He added: “I think our experience in London is that they’re best when there’s guards – public safety is your number one consideration when you have guards. “As much as technology is moving on I think it’s important to put public safety first and a train attendant is a crucial thing to have in case of emergencies.”I am, however,  absolutely committed to going driverless because of the stranglehold the Unions have on the network.”The Scottish National Party disagreed, arguing that the trains will be a “fantastic addition” to Glasgow.SNP MSP Sandra White said: “It is common practice in countries across the world like Denmark to have unmanned electric trains, however, safety and customer service will remain a top priority on the new Glasgow Subway trains that will be fitted with CCTV throughout. “These trains will be a fantastic addition to Glasgow’s infrastructure, helping serve passengers safely and efficiently on the historic metro system for many years to come.”A spokesperson from Strathclyde Partnership for Transport, which is responsible for the trains, commented: “We are currently looking at how we might best utilise front-line staff following the introduction of the new system. Staff understand and accept that there will be changes to current working practices. However, safety and customer service will always remain a priority. read more

Google search data says people dont care about computers

first_imgSome recent examination of Google’s search trend data has resulted in a shocking discovery: people aren’t searching for terms associated with computers and electronics nearly as much as they once did. In fact, the volume of these searches has gone down by half since 2004. Clearly this means people are only half as interested in technology, right? Of course not.Just take a look around, and you will see that people are buying plenty of the items one might expect to be associated with the dipping search terms. Consumers obviously care enough to be buying electronics at record rates, so implying that fewer people want to know about these products is a spurious conclusion.I suspect there are two factors skewing the data. First, people are getting set in their ways. The early to mid 2000s was a strange time for consumer electronics. Apple was resurgent, Microsoft was beginning to falter, new game consoles were on the horizon, and people needed to know what was happening. No one is searching a dozen times to decide if they should get the Xbox 360 or the PS3. Users know how to find the data they need.The other factor, and the one I think is more telling, is that Google searches are just returning more relevant information. This is a reading on the volume of searches, remember. In 2004 there was still a serious spam problem on Google. A lot of queries pulled up results full of link farms and irrelevant information. As time goes on, it takes fewer tries to find what you’re looking for.Searches for smartphones have gone up, but that’s no surprise — smartphones just became important in the last 5 years or so. These two search categories are not mutually exclusive, though. That is, you can be interested in both smartphones and other types of electronics, so we can’t assume smartphones are crowding out everything else. It’s not the case that fewer people want to know about technology, we’re just searching smarter.via The Atlanticlast_img read more

2020 Toyota Highlander teased ahead of New York Auto Show debut

first_img Review • 2019 Toyota Highlander review: Still competitive, but showing its age Crossovers SUVs Share your voice Enlarge ImageFrom the wrong angle, it’s a jumbled mess. From the right angle, it’s the 2020 Highlander. Toyota There’s an all-new, fourth-generation Toyota Highlander on the way. And while we won’t see the final version until April 17, at the New York Auto Show, on Tuesday, Toyota previewed its next crossover SUV in a rather unconventional manner.The 2020 Highlander’s teaser campaign uses what Toyota calls “augmented reality” artwork consisting of 200 individual hand-painted pieces. They’re suspended together so that from the correct angle, the Highlander’s shape is visible. From other angles, it’s just a jumbled mess of shapes. The artwork was created by Michael Murphy over the span of two months. You can get a better impression of what the installation looks like in the video below. 2019 Toyota Highlander: Still competent and comfortable Apr 19 • Check out the gory details in Honda’s IIHS crash-tested HR-V See All 2019 Toyota Highlander review: Still competitive, but showing its age 1 More From Roadshow Apr 19 • Volkswagen’s US CEO says around $25,000 would be a smart price for a small pickup Preview • 2019 Toyota Highlander: Model overview, pricing, tech and specs 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous The teaser shows that the 2020 Toyota Highlander will have a sleeker profile than today’s model, with a beltline that rises upward towards the rear of the vehicle and a roofline that’s just a little more sloped than the existing model. We can probably expect the Highlander to carry over some of the modern, rugged design cues previously seen on the newest Toyota RAV4.The current generation of the Toyota Highlander was also introduced at the New York Auto Show, in 2013 as a 2014 model. Then at the 2016 NY show, Toyota showed off the refreshed 2017 Highlander. With the SUV now six years old, it’s no surprise Toyota has a new model in the works, especially given that there’s fresh competition in the three-row space. The new Highlander will take on newcomers such as the 2020 Ford Explorer and Subaru Ascent, among others.In the lead-up to the Highlander’s reveal, Toyota will project videos of the 3D art installation on buildings around New York. Check back with Roadshow on April 17 for full details and photos of this important new SUV.center_img Apr 19 • Acura MDX PMC Edition is a hand-assembled SUV in brilliant red paint New York Auto Show 2019 Tags 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid first drive: A new kind of Explorer More about 2019 Toyota Highlander • reading • 2020 Toyota Highlander teased ahead of New York Auto Show debut Comment 70 Photos New York Auto Show 2019 Toyota May 29 • 2020 Ford Escape: Everything there is to know Toyotalast_img read more

Big Destiny news leaks upcoming Rise of Iron expansion leaving old cons

first_imgSorry, last-gen Destiny owners, but it looks as though Bungie is going to strand you in The Tower. Tomorrow, Bungie is planning a much-hyped reveal event for Rise of Iron, the next massive Destiny expansion, but thanks to two leaks today, we already have most of the information. It’s not going to make PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 Destiny fans happy, because if the leaks are true, Bungie is finally leaving older consoles behind.Rise of Iron launches September 20th!— Destiny & Halo (@MoreConsole) June 8, 2016The information was gleaned from Bungie’s own site, where eagle-eyed readers quickly spotted and screengrabbed it before it was hurriedly pulled down. It confirmed what we all knew to be true, that the next expansion will officially be called Rise of Iron. What we didn’t expect was a release date, September 20, and what platforms it will be available for, the PS4 and Xbox One.PS3 and Xbox 360 owners knew this time would come. After all, Destiny was a technically limited game because only because Bungie decided to develop it for last-gen consoles. Because of this, current-gen players were stuck with smaller map sizes, limited inventory space, and slower load times. Some emotes were only available for current-gen systems, and last year’s The Taken King expansion wouldn’t even play if you were stuck on a console with limited storage space. Let’s not forget that Destiny 2 was originally planned to release later this year before being delayed, so it’s entirely possible that they just weren’t planning for old consoles anymore.Tomorrow 10AM PT: Join @Bungie and discover the next threat Guardians will confront.— Destiny The Game (@DestinyTheGame) June 8, 2016 For the rest of us with shiny new systems, the date and news for Rise of Iron is welcomed. Along with the Bungie leak, a store listing briefly appeared on the Xbox store (and was preserved on NeoGAF) and showed off even more details about the expansion. The listing revealed that the expansion will contain a new campaign that will center on an area of Old Russia just past the collapsed wall, which jives with the promo art that leaked last month.“Fallen mutants now scavenge the tombs of the Golden Age, and the plague they have unearthed in the wastes is more dangerous than even they understand. Join Lord Saladin. Journey into the Plaguelands. Learn the fate of the Iron Lords and stop the growing threat before it is too late.” Does this mean that we’ll be fighting alongside Lord Saladin, or will he just be talking away in our ears (like every other AI companion) as we do the hard work? Along with this description, the listing confirms just what everyone expects from an expansion: more stuff! Besides the new quests and story campaign, there will be new armor, gear, and weapons, a maximum Light increase, a new raid and strike, and a new enemy faction. There will also be a brand new social space in the Plaguelands (which doesn’t really sound too social of a space to us), as well as a new crucible mode and maps, probably set in the new area. More, more, more!You will need every expansion for Destiny so far to jump into Rise of Iron, but you can bet they’ll have bundles of the entire saga all ready to purchase on day one for newcomers. In any case, all will revealed tomorrow at 10:00 AM PST, when Bungie’s livestream airs and shows off the new trailer. Until then, Guardians.last_img read more

Mobiles in exam halls may put HS examinees in trouble

first_imgKolkata: Ahead of higher secondary examination, the West Bengal Board on Saturday warned the students of stern punitive action if they are found carrying smartphones during the examination.The West Bengal Council of Higher Secondary Education president Mahua Das, while addressing a media conference, said that stringent action, including cancellation of registration, would be taken against students if any cell phone is found in their possession in the examination hall. The new move has been initiated after question papers of the Madhyamik exam were leaked, most of all the seven papers. The HS examination will begin on February 26 and continue until March 13. Around 8,16,243 candidates will take the examination. Interestingly, the number of female candidates taking the examination is higher than their male counterparts by 63,413. The class XI examination on the basis of the new syllabus will also be conducted simultaneously during the same period. Das added that there will be computer-generated numbers on each packet containing the question papers which will help the Council to track them. In addition to that, there will be a more effective manual tracking system in place. There will be around 713 HS examination centres across the state while the number of venue stands at 2,117. According to the press statement issued by the president, there will be a deployment of two Council nominees at each main venue. Apart from the venue supervisor, centre-in-charge and centre secretary, none will be allowed to enter the venue with mobile phones. The security arrangement has also been enhanced. The process of capturing video inside all the venues which was started from last year will also be done this year. A District Magistrate-nominated representative will be the venue-in-charge and supervise the examination procedure. For the first time, the WBCHSE has decided to deploy special Council nominee at 250 sensitive venues.last_img read more

Photo courtesy of US Electronics March 21, 2016 — Barco launched a new generation of its Coronis Fusion diagnostic display line, further boosting diagnostic accuracy as well as radiologist productivity. The new line was introduced at the 2016 European Congress of Radiology (ECR), March 2-6 in Vienna, Austria.According to a recent study by The MarkeTech Group, about 85 percent of radiologists use three displays or more. That’s why 87 percent of radiologists experience physical discomfort (such as back pain, neck strain and eye fatigue) when reading images. With its 30-inch screen, Barco’s Coronis Fusion offers the highest screen real estate compared to competitive products, according to the company, providing the perfect canvas for multimodality diagnostic imaging and enabling flexible positioning of images on a single screen. Together with its super wide viewing angle, Coronis Fusion not only reduces head and eye movements, but also minimizes image manipulations for a more ergonomic reading experience. Built on the latest IPS panel technology, Coronis Fusion ensures a screen area that is 100 percent compliant with the American College of Radiology (ACR) guideline for luminance ratio. It offers 50 percent more calibrated light (and 10 percent more just-noticeable differences) for faster diagnosis of subtle details, improving radiologists’ workflow. Additionally, Coronis Fusion offers smart image-enhancing technologies to further improve detection probability. These include SpotView technology to focus the light on lesions or abnormalities that require extra attention. It even allows users to double the size of the image in the focal spot so no detail goes unnoticed. Coronis Fusion display systems come with additional built-in features that help streamline workflow. By automating routine tasks they make reading sessions more efficient. Tools comprise VirtualView (to create a virtual nav-head) and DimView (to remove light pollution coming from surrounding displays), so radiologists can keep their focus on the details that really matter. Like all of Barco’s radiology displays, Coronis Fusion is bundled with MediCal QAWeb — a cloud-based service for automated, remote calibration and quality assurance — which ensures the display is up and running to perfection at all times, with no interruptions to the radiologist’s workflow. Each display system comes with an ultra-fast display controller — validated with the latest workstations and with all major picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) applications — and includes seamlessly integrated technologies to boost functionality and performance. This simplifies management of the entire display network and leads to significant reductions in operational expenditure. The Coronis Fusion display system comes with a warranty of 40,000 hours on the entire system. Researchers from the Montefiore Medical Center found that Barco’s Coronis Fusion 6MP increases productivity by up to 19 percent and reduces eye strain compared to a dual-head 3MP workstation. Plus, the product won the Frost and Sullivan product line strategy award in 2013.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Technology | Flat Panel Displays | May 17, 2019 Tru-Vu Monitors Releases New Medical-Grade Touch Screen Display Tru-Vu Monitors released the new MMZBTP-21.5G-X 21.5” medical-grade touch screen monitor.

Keybases new proof system is now available for all Mastodon servers

first_imgLast week, Mastodon 2.8, a self-hosted social media service, was shipped with Keybase’s brand new proof system. Yesterday, the team behind Keybase announced that this new proof system is now available for all Mastodon servers. With this update, any community will be able to cryptographically connect their profiles to Keybase. Keybase is a free security app for groups, communities, families, and friends using which you can affirm your identity across the web. At its core, Keybase is a key directory that maps social media identities to encryption keys. Users can also have an encrypted chat with Keybase’s end-to-end chat service called Keybase Chat. With Keybase, users can prove a “link” between online identities such as Twitter or Reddit account and their encryption keys. So, instead of relying on a system like OAuth, identities are proven by posting a signed statement on the account a user wants to prove ownership of. For instance, a user just needs to enter their Twitter handle in the Keybase app following which a signed tweet is generated and is sent to Twitter. Once the tweet is posted, the user returns to the Keybase app. This mechanism makes identity proofs publicly verifiable instead of having to trust that the service is truthful. Though this method is quick and easy, it does have some limitations. Keybase app automatically generates the verification tweet, which users are expected to post. However, the user can edit these tweets. The Keybase team has now updated the proof system, which solves this problem. When a user claims on Keybase that they are a user on a site, they are redirected to that particular site. The verification is then completed in just two steps: Source: Keybase The site will then show the following row, signaling that the user is verified: Source: Keybase To read the full announcement, visit Keybase’s official website.

Costa Rica is giving away its fishing resources says opposition candidate José

first_imgNo related posts. Concerns over the future of Costa Rica’s aggressive fishing practices were at the center of a discussion with Broad Front Party presidential candidate and lawmaker José María Villalta Wednesday afternoon on LA Talk Radio in the United States and locally on Rainforest Radio.Villalta, who was one of the top three leading candidates in a recent poll, said that water was “Costa Rica’s principle resource,” and accused the government of “giving away” the country’s natural resources to large industrial fishing companies.  Tico Times Editor-in-Chief David Boddiger and Rainforest Radio’s Jani Schulz interviewed the presidential aspirant Wednesday afternoon on Schulz’s LA Talk Radio Show, “Jana of the Jungle.” The lawmaker said that reforming the Costa Rican Fisheries Institute (INCOPESCA) was needed to protect the country’s marine resources and fight poverty in coastal regions. “INCOPESCA is a mess,” Villalta observed.The 36-year-old Broad Front Party lawmaker and popular opposition candidate said that there was no way for the institute to achieve its stated goals of protecting Costa Rica’s marine resources while also incentivizing the fishing industry. The conflict of interest at the heart of INCOPESCA is further exacerbated by the majority presence of fishing industry leaders on the institute’s board of directors. “They oversee themselves so there’s no oversight. It’s like having thieves run the police,” Villalta said. “The Board of Directors is made up of the biggest industrial fishing operations and they have no incentive to change [the way they do business].”The lawmaker said that reform of the institute and other marine issues would be priorities for his administration.“If there were reform, we could better protect our resources, and make sure the national fishing fleet would benefit, generating more jobs, reducing poverty. It would be a situation where everyone wins: the public, the workers. It’s not just an environmental problem, it’s a social problem.” He recommended the environmental oversight duties tasked to INCOPESCA be passed on to the Environment and Energy Ministry or another government body to avoid the conflict of interest. Villalta also said he hopes to see small-scale fishermen represented on the board.Villalta added that the lack of job opportunities, some displaced by overfishing, in many communities along Costa Rica’s coasts have made fishermen vulnerable to drug traffickers, who have been known to co-opt their vessels to run cocaine and other illegal substances.The candidate said that if the government would charge the actual value of the fishing licenses — especially for tuna — the country would have the financial resources to invest in its Coast Guard to fight illegal fishing and provide extension services to help small-scale fishermen improve their catch and fish sustainably. “This is our fight: a development model that generates well-being for the people but at the same time allows us to protect the beauties of Costa Rica for future generations,” Villalta told the hosts. Listen to the entire interview here and read more about Villalta’s campaign (in Spanish) here.

New Home Price Hits Record High in April as Sales Inch Up

first_img The price of a new single-family home soared to a record high in April as sales jumped 2.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 454,000, the “”Census Bureau and HUD””: reported Thursday. [IMAGE] Economists surveyed by Bloomberg expected April sales to increase to 425,000 from March’s originally reported 417,000. March sales were revised to 444,000.The median price of a new home, according to the Census/HUD report, soared $20,900 (8.3 percent) in April to $271,600, the highest price on record.The inventory of homes available for sale rose to 155,000–the highest level since November 2011–translating to a 3.5 month supply, matching March for a record low.The Census/HUD report for April also included data revisions back to January 2011, which showed a slight increase in home sales as defined for this report. The monthly average for the 28-month period increased from the originally reported 347,000 to 353,000 with the revisions. The average median price went from $235,348 to $237,043. The report tracks contract signings–not closings. Both the boost in sales and the sharp increase in prices were consistent with the improvement in “”builder confidence””: reported last week by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). NAHB├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós Housing Market Index increased in May for the first time this year.The average price of a new home increased a staggering $44,100 in April (or 15.4 percent) to $330,800, also a record high. The Census/HUD report has been tracking median prices since January 1963 and average prices since January 1975. Both the absolute dollar and percentage increase in the median price were the largest monthly gains since December 2010, when prices rose $21,600, or 9.8 percent. The month-over-month dollar and percentage increase in the average price were the highest on record.[COLUMN_BREAK]In the last year, the median price of a new home was up $35,200, or 14.9 percent. The average price has increased $42,900 (also 14.9 percent) in the same period.The increase in the median and average prices of new homes was driven by a change in the mix of homes sold in April. Homes with price tags under $300,000 represented 58 percent of April sales, down from 67 percent in March. Homes prices at $400,000 or more represented 24 percent of April sales, up from 13 percent in March. The boost in sales for lower-priced homes could mean more construction activity for more expensive homes with fewer builder incentives.Regionally, sales improved month-over-month in April in two of the four Census regions: up 12,000 in the West to 123,000 and up 7,000 in the South to 242,000. Sales fell 6,000 to 30,000 in the Northeast and 3,000 in the Midwest to 59,000. The sharp increase in prices coupled with the drop in inventory could spark a new round of housing starts with the prospect of increased construction employment, especially as the weather becomes more favorable. That said, recent data on housing permits and starts show a decided shift in preferences as housing starts tilt to multifamily from single-family. In its latest report on “”housing permits and starts””:, Census and HUD said 60.7 percent of permits were for single-family homes–the lowest since last September–and while total permits increased 127,000 in April, multi-family permits accounted for 109,000, or 85.8 percent. Total housing starts fell with single-family starts dropping to the lowest level since November.The report on permits and starts also showed builders completed 536,000 single-family homes in April, 82,000 more than they sold. While completions typically exceed sales, the “”gap”” was the smallest since February 2012.The government report on new homes came on the heels of the report Wednesday from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) that “”existing-home sales””: rose a 0.6 percent in April to an annual sales rate of 4.97 million, the highest level since November 2009. The median price of an existing single-family home jumped $8,900 in the month to $192,800, the highest since August 2008. The inventory of existing homes for sale rose to the highest levels since last September. The NAR report tracks closings.

Credit Challenges Continue for SelfEmployed Borrowers

first_imgCredit Challenges Continue for Self-Employed Borrowers Share December 5, 2014 526 Views Despite earning nearly twice as much income on average as other borrowers, self-employed Americans continue to experience more difficulty obtaining a loan quote than their counterparts, according to a study.In a study of borrower profiles and lender behaviors, Zillow found that self-employed loan applicants receive only six loan quotes for every 10 received by non-self-employed borrowers. That’s even worse than in June 2011, when the ratio was seven for every 10.While self-employed borrowers tend to earn 81 percent more money annually—$145,000 per household on average compared to $80,000 for non-self-employed households—they’re being held back by lower average credit scores, Zillow says.”Low credit scores, coupled with a mountain of paperwork lenders must complete specifically for self-employed borrowers, make them unattractive,” said Erin Lantz, VP of mortgages at Zillow. “So, despite self-employed borrowers with high incomes appearing on paper to be better situated to repay their loan, they’re often overlooked by lenders.”According to the company’s analysis, 47 percent of self-employed borrowers have self-reported FICO scores below 720, while 28 percent have scores below 680. By comparison, 23 percent of non-self-employed borrowers have scores below 720, and 14 percent have scores below 680.The median U.S. credit score as of April 2014 was 692, according to myFICO.Though their credit scores tend to be lower, self-employed loan applicants beat out their counterparts across most other categories. Besides earning a higher annual income, they also tend to put down more money, paying on average 15.3 percent for down payments on mortgage requests compared to 14.6 percent for the other group.Self-employed borrowers are also more interested in higher-priced homes, the study found. The median property value for mortgage requests for self-employed borrowers on Zillow is $352,000 compared $315,000 for non-self-employed borrowers.
