In the online education space, if you don’t already have a well of content to draw from, the quickest path to implementation can be an acquisition. That’s the strategy Praetorian Digital, a B2B digital media company serving the public safety and local government markets, used last week when it bought the Fire & EMS training unit from Kaplan Professional Education. Praetorian’s audience to its first responder brands has been growing. Traffic to FireRescue1.com, EMS1.com, PoliceOne.com and CorrectionsOne.com has ballooned to 1.3 million members and 6 million monthly visitors, according to the company. Online training has become a significant business for Praetorian. Two years ago it accounted for less than 5 percent of overall revenue. The Kaplan deal will help it grow to a projected 25 percent this year. Kaplan Fire & EMS will be renamed to the Fire EMS Academy and will be housed in the company’s Fire EMS Academy Division. In all, the group will offer more than 200 training courses, 600 videos and 80 hours of continuing education credits. Training and certificate programs are a key function of first responder markets, and Ford sees them as a complimentary platform to the company’s information products and services. Terms weren’t disclosed but Praetorian CEO Alex Ford says the deal was financed through a mix of existing cash and term loan financing. “We recognized that there is a strong fit between online training and our core media business,” he says. “Rather than build a content library and work through the accreditation process from scratch, an acquisition to fast-track the opportunity made a lot of sense. Kaplan was not actively marketing the business, but it became immediately clear that it was a strong strategic fit with our business and that a combination was a great next step to scale the assets.” The Kaplan product comes with 300 fire and EMS department subscribers and “tens of thousands” of individual students using the products on an on-demand basis, says Ford. The annual department subscriptions are the primary revenue model. “The revenue model matched that of our PoliceOne Academy almost exactly,” he adds .

Thane: Two government employees in Maharashtra have been arrested for allegedly taking bribe from a trader to allow him to cut trees, an ACB official said. Sanjay Pawaskar (57), a revenue officer at Kankavli tehsil in Sindhudurg district, and Nilesh Kadam (34), a clerk in his office, allegedly demanded Rs 6,000 and Rs 2,000, respectively, to grant permission to a timber trader for tree- cutting, he said.

The accused were subsequently arrested and booked under relevant sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act, he added.
Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Saturday alleged that ruling Awami League is ‘spitting venom’ on chief justice SK Sinha with a motive to cement one-party rule in the country by weakening the judiciary.”I think what Awami League is saying and what they’re doing over the 16th amendment verdict are against the rule of law and tantamount to contempt of court. Their all leaders are making indecent comments targeting the chief justice, committing the contempt of court,” said BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir.Fakhrul came up with the comments while talking to reporters after placing wreaths at BNP founder Ziaur Rahman’s grave in the capital, marking the release of party vice chairman Barkatullah Bulu from jail.Bulu was freed on bail on 18 August nearly three months after he was sent to jail in 13 violence cases.The BNP secretary general said, “The main motive behind their comments and activities is to restore one-party rule by destroying the independence of the judiciary. But, the country’s people will never accept it.”He said ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) has no legitimacy to stay in power after the observations of the 16th amendment verdict. “The government should quit immediately.”About Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader’s comment that BNP’s dream of putting the government in trouble following the apex court verdict has dashed, Fakhrul said the ruling party leaders are now making ‘reckless’ remarks as the verdict has exposed the government’s ‘true face’.Fakhrul said their party is not hopeful of getting any solution to the country’s main crisis over the nature of election-time government from the election commission’s current talks with different stakeholders, including the political parties.Sought his reaction to Awami League’s stance on the apex court’s 16th amendment verdict, BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed said it is unprecedented that the government or the ruling party hold meeting with the chief justice over any verdict of the court.”We can say they’re trying to influence the judiciary and the chief justice which is unconstitutional. What example they’re setting now will remain as a serious stigma for the country in the future,” he observed.
Share Scott Olson/Getty Images/Via NPRHarley-Davidson motorcycle engines are assembled at the company’s plant in Menomonee Falls, Wis. Tariffs from the European Union are prompting the company to shift production of some motorcycles for the European market overseas.Harley-Davidson says it plans to move production of motorcycles it sells in Europe overseas in response to growing trade friction between the United States and Europe.European officials last week imposed stiff tariffs on a wide range of U.S.-made goods sold within the European Union. The response came to President Trump’s recent decision to slap tariffs on European imports.In a Securities and Exchange Commission filing Monday, Harley-Davidson said the tariffs imposed by the EU “would have an immediate and lasting detrimental impact to its business in the region.”The company reported $5.65 billion in revenues last year and Europe is its largest overseas market, with almost 40,000 customers buying motorcycles there in 2017.The European tariffs have jumped from 6 percent to 31 percent, the company said. That increase will add on average $2,200 to the cost of each motorcycle sold in the EU, and would cost the company $90 million to $100 million a year, the filing said.“Increasing international production to alleviate the EU tariff burden is not the company’s preference, but represents the only sustainable option to make its motorcycles accessible to customers in the EU and maintain a viable business in Europe,” the filing said.The company did not say where production would be shifted, or how many jobs might be affected, but said the move would take nine to 18 months to complete.It also did not say which U.S. factories would be affected. The company’s U.S. factories are in York, Pa.; Kansas City, Mo., and Menomonee Falls, Wis. It also has manufacturing operations in Australia, Brazil, India and Thailand.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Submitted to the AFRO by Dr. Kaye Wise WhiteheadFor the past five months. I have spent my days driving around and visiting the Black Butterfly neighborhoods of Baltimore City. I visited the schools, the corner and liquor stores, and the churches. I rode the bus through the neighborhoods, listened in on some conversations, and talked to some of the residents. There were days when I was overwhelmed by the feelings of despair, the rows of boarded up houses, and the ever-growing piles of trash. There were days when I walked on some blocks and it felt like time had stood still. The streets looked abandoned. The houses looked old almost as if the world had moved on and had forgotten that they existed. On my third week of walking around, an elderly woman, who reminded me of my grandmother, wanted to know what I was doing and why I kept showing up. She wanted to know if I was cop or if I was lost. I fumbled around for an answer because how do you tell someone that you are walking through their neighborhood so that you could bear witness to their suffering. I tried to explain that I was the host of “Today With Dr. Kaye” and that I wrote for the AFRO and that I wanted to document what was happening in our city. I knew that I was rambling and that I probably sounded like an outsider or an interloper, but I wanted her to understand why I was there and why I had to document what I saw. I also wanted her to understand why I kept coming back. She looked at me, long and hard, and then, as she turned to walk away, she said, “Dr. Kaye, we’re invisible to them. They don’t see us. They don’t hear us. They don’t care about us. You tell them that we’re not invisible. Tell them that we matter.”I thought about Miss Janet and about what she said every time I walked through her neighborhood. I used to look for her because I wanted her to know that I heard her. I wanted her to know that I saw her. I wanted her to know that she was not invisible to me. I have written this letter to her a dozen times in my mind, trying so hard to put words down on paper, especially on the days when I read about the increasing neighborhood violence, or walked past another sidewalk vigil with candles and teddy bears and handwritten notes. I tried to write something on the day when I walked into one of the schools and saw the bars on the windows, the trash in the hallways, and our children, sitting in overcrowded classrooms trying to learn. I wanted to share her message with them, to let them know that they are not invisible and that their lives and their futures do matter. I wanted to do that to speak some truth into the void, to fill the pockets of pain with her words of hope.Dr. Karsonya Wise Whitehead (Courtesy Photo)I understand Black invisibility in a city where politicians argue about policies and theories while their most vulnerable residents suffer in silence. I understand Black suffering and the reality of life in the Black Butterfly versus life in the White L. I understand this the system is designed to keep certain communities impoverished, thriving on its suffering and breeding on its pain. I understand that when you live in the Black Butterfly, you are living in a conflict zone within a stressful environment that causes severe, prolonged trauma. I understand all this, intellectually, but emotionally, it makes no sense to me. I visited these neighborhoods, met some of the residents and listened to their stories, and there were days when the pain was so real to me that I experienced trauma. There were days when I got home, sat in a chair in my living room, and cried. Those were the days when it took me a few hours to decompress, breathing slowing and talking myself through my pain. I can only imagine what it must be like if you are unable to leave.What do you do when you realize that the most dangerous place that you can imagine is a place that some people call home? What do you tell people when you know that they cannot afford to move and they cannot imagine another way forward? When you listen to their stories of pain and sorrow, what can you say to offer some type of solace? How do you deal with the everyday reality that comes from knowing that there are people living in the Black Butterfly and dealing with Black invisibility and Black suffering? I believe that you send up an emergency flare; you put a note into a bottle and toss it into the water; you find a place and speak their pain into the wind; you disrupt life and yell out their truth with every breath that you have; and, you tell everyone you know, everyone you see, that they are not invisible and that they do matter. And when you are finished, you find the strength within yourself, to do it all over again.Karsonya Wise Whitehead is the #blackmommyactivist and an associate professor of communication and African and African American studies at Loyola University Maryland.

Citation: Researchers predict global warming will cause an increase in frequency of Indian Ocean Dipole events (2014, June 12) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2014-06-global-frequency-indian-ocean-dipole.html (Phys.org) —A team of researchers, led by Wenju Cai of CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research, in Australia has published a paper in the journal Nature in which they report that 21 out of 23 climate models they ran indicated an increased frequency of Indian Ocean Dipole events over the next century. The increase, the team also reports, will be due to the continuation of global warming. Explore further Positive Indian Ocean Dipole events cause devastating floods in many vulnerable east Africa countries. The 1997 positive Indian Ocean Dipole event resulted in several thousand deaths and displaced hundreds of thousands of people. The latest generation of climate models project that these extreme events are to occur more often under greenhouse warming. This image depicts the Gash River flooding in Kassala, Eastern Sudan, 2007.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Indian Ocean Dipole events are atmospheric phenomena that occur due to ocean temperature differences. They are characterized by peak sea surface temperature swings between the eastern and western basins. Positive phases of the cycle occur when warmer waters in the west lead to more rainfall there and cooler waters in the east lead to less rainfall. When this happens, land areas in the east such as Australia and Indonesia tend to undergo draughts, while those in the west such as parts of Africa undergo flooding. One example occurred in 1997 when smoke from fires in Indonesia blackened the skies across the region even as thousands of people were killed due to flooding in several African nations. In their paper, the authors of this new study suggest such occurrences are likely to happen much more often over the next several decades.To come to their conclusions, the team examined 31 global climate models and determined that 23 of them were capable of modeling rainfall in the Indian Ocean during both normal times and when there is a dipole event occurring. They ran the models first for the period 1900, to 1999 to see how well they could predict dipole events that actually occurred, then, encouraged by the results, ran the models again, this time for the period 2000 to 2099, under what they describe as business as usual conditions. They report that 21 of 23 models predicted an increase in the frequency of positive phase Indian Ocean Dipole events—the combined average predictions suggest the region will see approximately triple the number of such events over the coming century—from one every 17.3 years to one every 6.3 years. The business as usual conditions assume greenhouse gas emissions will continue to increase at their current pace.If such predictions come to pass it could mean an increase in fires in eastern countries, but more devastating perhaps, an increase in flooding in some of the poorest parts of the world, which would likely be made even worse in coastal areas as sea levels are predicted to rise during the same time period. Journal information: Nature Indian Ocean phenomenon helping to predict extreme weather More information: Increased frequency of extreme Indian Ocean Dipole events due to greenhouse warming, Nature 510, 254–258 (12 June 2014) DOI: 10.1038/nature13327AbstractThe Indian Ocean dipole is a prominent mode of coupled ocean–atmosphere variability, affecting the lives of millions of people in Indian Ocean rim countries. In its positive phase, sea surface temperatures are lower than normal off the Sumatra–Java coast, but higher in the western tropical Indian Ocean. During the extreme positive-IOD (pIOD) events of 1961, 1994 and 1997, the eastern cooling strengthened and extended westward along the equatorial Indian Ocean through strong reversal of both the mean westerly winds and the associated eastward-flowing upper ocean currents1, 2. This created anomalously dry conditions from the eastern to the central Indian Ocean along the Equator and atmospheric convergence farther west, leading to catastrophic floods in eastern tropical African countries13, 14 but devastating droughts in eastern Indian Ocean rim countries. Despite these serious consequences, the response of pIOD events to greenhouse warming is unknown. Here, using an ensemble of climate models forced by a scenario of high greenhouse gas emissions (Representative Concentration Pathway 8.5), we project that the frequency of extreme pIOD events will increase by almost a factor of three, from one event every 17.3 years over the twentieth century to one event every 6.3 years over the twenty-first century. We find that a mean state change—with weakening of both equatorial westerly winds and eastward oceanic currents in association with a faster warming in the western than the eastern equatorial Indian Ocean—facilitates more frequent occurrences of wind and oceanic current reversal. This leads to more frequent extreme pIOD events, suggesting an increasing frequency of extreme climate and weather events in regions affected by the pIOD. © 2014 Phys.org

The Hertz Corporation has its eyes set on a greener future for the rental car industry, but has admitted that there is no magic bullet to achieve this. “There is not a single solution to the green issue,” Hertz International president Michel Taride told e-Travel Blackboard. In Sydney for the announcement of Hertz’s acquisition of Ace Rental cars and alliance with Apollo Motorhomes, Mr Taride said “the move to electric cars is not a simple process”, but added that the elements required for its success “are all converging”. “We are partners with GE (General Electric) who build charging stations,” Mr Taride said. The Hertz International president commented that “the whole issue was about battery life” but was confident things were moving in the right direction. “New technology will see batteries recharged in 22 minutes and not a couple of hours like now,” Mr Taride told e-Travel Blackboard. The comments follow the acquisition late last year by Hertz of Melbourne based car sharing company Flexicar, which has become part of the rental company’s “Connect by Hertz” programme. “We are the only global car sharing club,” Mr Taride said.“New York, London, Paris, Berlin and Madrid are already part of this programme – now it is Australia’s turn.” Mr Taride speaking at the presentation Source = e-Travel Blackboard: M.H Hertz International president Michel Taride
Source = IATA IATA forecasts passenger demand to double over 20 yearsThe International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects 7.2 billion passengers to travel in 2035, a near doubling of the 3.8 billion air travelers in 2016. The prediction is based on a 3.7% annual Compound Average Growth Rate (CAGR) noted in the release of the latest update to the association’s 20-Year Air Passenger Forecast.“People want to fly. Demand for air travel over the next two decades is set to double. Enabling people and nations to trade, explore, and share the benefits of innovation and economic prosperity makes our world a better place,” said Alexandre de Juniac, IATA’s Director General and CEO.Eastward shift, developing market focusThe forecast for passenger growth confirms that the biggest driver of demand will be the Asia-Pacific region. It is expected to be the source of more than half the new passengers over the next 20 years. China will displace the US as the world’s largest aviation market (defined by traffic to, from and within the country) around 2029. India will displace the UK for third place in 2026, while Indonesia enters the top ten at the expense of Italy. Growth will also increasingly be driven within developing markets. Over the past decade the developing world’s share of total passenger traffic has risen from 24% to nearly 40%, and this trend is set to continue.Risks, Challenges and OpportunitiesThe 20-year forecast puts forward three scenarios. The central scenario foresees a doubling of passengers with a 3.7% annual CAGR. If trade liberalization gathers pace, demand could triple the 2015 level. Conversely, if the current trend towards trade protectionism gathers strength, growth could cool to 2.5% annual CAGR which would see passenger numbers reach 5.8 billion by 2035.“Economic growth is the only durable solution for the world’s current economic woes. Yet we see governments raising barriers to trade rather than making it easier. If this continues in the long-term, it will mean slower growth and the world will be poorer for it. For aviation, the protectionist scenario could see growth slowing to as low as 2.5% annually. Not only will that mean fewer new aviation jobs, it will mean that instead of 7.2 billion travelers in 2035, we will have 5.8 billion. The economic impact of that will be broad and hard-felt,” said de Juniac.Whatever scenario is eventually realized, growth will put pressure on infrastructure that is already struggling to cope with demand. “Runways, terminals, security and baggage systems, air traffic control, and a whole raft of other elements need to be expanded to be ready for the growing number of flyers. It cannot be done by the industry alone. Planning for change requires governments, communities and the industry working together in partnership,” said de Juniac.The industry will also need to be able to grow sustainably. Earlier this month airlines supported the establishment of a Carbon Offset and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA). This landmark agreement—the first among governments to manage the emissions growth of an entire global industrial sector—aims to cap net emissions with carbon neutral growth from 2020. “Aviation is at the forefront of industries in managing its carbon footprint. Along with offsetting emissions through CORSIA, airlines are working with partners in industry and government to advance technology, improve operations and generate more efficiencies in infrastructure,” said de Juniac.Key facts (all figures based on central growth forecast)Fast-growing marketsThe five fastest-growing markets in terms of additional passengers per year over the forecast period will be:China (817 million new passengers for a total of 1.3 billion)US (484 million new passengers for a total of 1.1 billion)India (322 million new passengers for a total of 442 million)Indonesia (135 million new passengers for a total of 242 million)Vietnam (112 million new passengers for a total of 150 million).The top ten fastest-growing markets in percentage terms will be in Africa: Sierra Leone, Guinea, Central African Republic, Benin, Mali, Rwanda, Togo, Uganda, Zambia and Madagascar. Each of these markets is expected to grow by more than 8% each year on average over the next 20 years, doubling in size each decade.Regional growthRoutes to, from and within Asia-Pacific will see an extra 1.8 billion annual passengers by 2035, for an overall market size of 3.1 billion. Its annual average growth rate of 4.7% will be the second-highest, behind the Middle East.The North American region will grow by 2.8% annually and in 2035 will carry a total of 1.3 billion passengers, an additional 536 million passengers per year.Europe will have the slowest growth rate, 2.5%, but will still add an additional 570 million passengers a year. The total market will be 1.5 billion passengers.Latin American markets will grow by 3.8%, serving a total of 658 million passengers, an additional 345 million passengers annually compared to today.The Middle East will grow strongly (5.0%) and will see an extra 258 million passengers a year on routes to, from and within the region by 2035. The UAE, Qatar and Saudi Arabia will all enjoy strong growth of 6.3%, 4.7%, and 4.1% respectively. The total market size will be 414 million passengers.Africa will grow by 5.1%. By 2035 it will see an extra 192 million passengers a year for a total market of 303 million passengers.Download the full report HERE
Bank of Cyprus, the island’s largest lender, said Tuesday it has agreed to sell its subsidiary, Bank of Cyprus UK, to Cynergy Capital Limited, a UK-based group, for a total of GBP103m (€116.6m).The sale, subject to approval by Cypriot and British regulators, is expected to be completed by the end of the year, Bank of Cyprus said in a statement.

The equity realised will be deployed in pursuit of our core activity in Cyprus to continue to support the recovery of the Cypriot economy”.He added that the agreed transaction will allow the UK bank “to grow faster, thereby achieving the ambition for this business with new partners”.Bank of Cyprus and Cynergy also agreed to sign a “cooperation agreement” to ensure continuity in servicing the bank’s existing customers.“We are excited about the cooperation agreement which provides for a strong channel of connectivity post-Brexit and into the future, and will support group customer requirements for UK banking, as well as delivering commercial benefits for both organisations,” Hourican added.The transaction will reduce the bank’s balance sheet by around €2bn, the bank said. at the end of March, the gross loans of the bank’s UK unit amounted to €1.8bn or 9 per cent of the group’s total.The lender added that the deal is expected to have a “negligible impact” on the income statement with the organic earnings per share guidance remaining unchanged at €0.40 for the year. “The group’s targets for the year and medium-term guidance remain unchanged and continue to exclude any impact from any possible accelerated risk-reduction transactions,” the bank said.Cynergy’s CEO Nick Fahy said that the acquisition by Cynergy, which already has decades of experience in working with the members of the UK’s Cypriot community, will have a positive effect on the UK bank’s development.“The sale to Cynergy will enable us to focus on growing our franchise across enterprising business owners and savers in the UK, including the underserved property and SME market,” he continued.Bal Sohal, Cynergy’s director said that the company was actively looking to invest in the UK banking sector where it identified “significant opportunities for growth”.“Cynergy’s focus will be on delivering sustainable growth for the UK bank,” Sohal continued. “We plan to support the existing management team to deliver on the strategy it has for the bank and are committed to investing further capital to develop the business in the coming years”.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboola
