4 More From Roadshow Autonomous Vehicles Trucks Self-driving trucks have the chance to transform the logistics industry, and even the federal government is working to determine how well the tech can work in its nascent stages.The United States Postal Service will begin a two-week pilot program that will put self-driving trucks to work delivering mail. The USPS will use trucks from TuSimple, a startup working to bring the first commercial self-driving semi to market. The pilot program will consist of five round trips ferrying USPS trailers between Phoenix and Dallas, each leg covering more than 1,000 miles. The trucks will be driven along the I-10, I-20 and I-30 interstates, and the drives will take place at all hours of the day and night. Like many other AV pilot programs, there will be a safety engineer and driver on board to monitor the truck and, if necessary, take command.Enlarge ImageIt’s unclear if the trucks will carry USPS branding, or if the cabs will sport the same TuSimple getup seen here. TuSimple TuSimple said that this kind of trip is exactly what self-driving trucks are made for. Each 22-hour leg, with a short turnaround time, would usually require two drivers working in tandem and sharing some awfully close confines. Using AVs would eliminate the need to bathe in another person’s musk for nearly a full day at a time, which seems like a benefit. Of course, the USPS sees benefits beyond smell. “This pilot is just one of many ways the Postal Service is innovating and investing in its future,” said a USPS spokesperson in an emailed statement. “We are conducting research and testing as part of our efforts to operate a future class of vehicles which will incorporate new technology to accommodate a diverse mail mix, enhance safety, improve service, reduce emissions, and produce operational savings.”Driver shortages are hitting the logistics industry in a big way. American Trucking Association statistics estimate that the industry could be short some 175,000 drivers by 2024, so it’s a good time for self-driving trucks to start making moves. Enlarge ImageHaving driven most of this route in the past, I can assure you that it’s just about as lonely (and pretty) as it looks.

Kolkata: A day after Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee instructed police commissioner Rajeev Kumar to take stern action against those involved in collecting money for giving admission in colleges, Trinamool Chatra Parishad (TMCP) has also decided to crack the whip against such individuals.TMCP president Jaya Dutta will hold a meeting with student representatives from various colleges at Trinamool Bhavan beginning from Monday, giving clear instructions of abstaining from demanding money from any student for admission.

There will be no place for him/her in the party,” Dutta said, who had been assigned the responsibility to communicate the party’s strong stand in this regard.It has been learnt that Dutta will hold a meeting with representatives from Central Kolkata colleges on Monday, South Kolkata colleges on Tuesday and North Kolkata colleges on Wednesday.

It has been learnt that the Chief Minister became furious after reports of students asking for money from freshers to get them admitted in different colleges surfaced in the media.Acting on two complaints, Kolkata Police have already arrested four students, for allegedly extorting money to arrange seats in colleges. Senior police officials are expected to visit some colleges in the city, to ensure smooth admission procedures on Monday. Extra police force will be deployed outside colleges where admissions are going on. Outsiders will not be allowed inside the college premises and only merit should be the criterion for admission.Kolkata Police has posted on Facebook, asking people to email or WhatsApp complaints about extortion related to college admissions.It may be mentioned that in the core committee meeting held at Netaji Indoor Stadium recently, Mamata Banerjee had categorically said that no money should be taken from students on the pretext of providing admissions in colleges and stern actions would be taken against those involved in the matter.The Bidhannagar City Police, on its Facebook and Twitter page, has put up an email id: email@example.com and a WhatsApp number: 9051518444, on which a person can register his/her complaint if there is a demand for money for admission.
Kolkata: The stalemate in the shooting of television serials in Tollywood continues as the artistes and technicians are yet to arrive at a negotiation with the producers.The ceasework is the result of a demand by the Artistes’ Forum to regularise pay. The talks between it and the Welfare Association of Television Producers (WATP) are yet to yield results.In a Press release issued on Tuesday by the Federation of Cine Technicians and Workers of Eastern India, signed by senior artistes like Soumitra Chatterjee, its president, Prosenjit Chatterjee, its working president and Arindam Ganguly, general secretary, the artistes have agreed to join work the moment WATP agrees to implement the MoU signed between the producers and the artistes. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe future of nearly 10,000 artistes and technicians has become uncertain because of the stalemate. The artistes have also agreed to sit with the producers.Actor Prosenjit Chatterjee told newsmen that the Artistes’ Forum did not wish to disrupt shooting schedules of TV serials, but the July 8 agreement between the Television Producers’ body should be respected and artistes should be paid regularly.While the agreement between producers and the forum had stipulated that the artistes should get their salaries within the 15th day of the next month, many producers did not honour it and did not arrange the payment overdue to the artistes, Chatterjee maintained. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedHe said in the given situation, it is not possible to resume work unless the producers pay the arrears. Chatterjee made it clear though that he was only referring to a section of producers and not all. The ceasework has been disrupting the overall shooting schedules.Forum general secretary and actor Arindam Ganguly said the July 8 agreement had also specified that any artiste working for more than 10 hours should be paid on an hourly basis after the expiry of the scheduled time. That too had not been honoured by a section of producers.He said the state government is aware of the situation. “Minister Aroop Biswas has been updated of the developments at the meeting and he is trying to arrive at a solution,” he added. Meanwhile, there was no shooting during the day in all the eight studios located across different areas of South Kolkata, due to the ceasework.

Share Posted by << Previous PostNext Post >> TORONTO — When Philip Rose took over as Regional Director, Canada for the Jamaica Tourist Board seven years ago, he came here from the U.S. “and I had all my big ideas. I quickly learned that Canada is a very unique market with nuances that cannot be overlooked.”Rose is leaving the JTB’s Canadian office for a new post with the tourism board, an appointment he says he’ll be able to announce in the next couple of weeks. He starts his new role in the new year, and meanwhile a new Regional Director will be announced for the Canadian market.Does Rose have any advice for the incoming new Regional Director? “Ask questions. Listen. Trust the team. And trust the partners,” he says.Asked what he’s most proud of, looking back on his 7 years heading up the Canadian market, Rose singles out his Canadian team: “I’m especially proud of how active, how professional my team has been here.” And, he adds, he’s proud of all the extra airlift to Jamaica.When Rose took over the post seven years ago, the Canadian dollar was starting to decline after a run at-par, prices to Jamaica had gone up and capacity had gone down. “It was like ‘Welcome to Canada, Philip’,” he jokes.More news: Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWT“All of our partners rallied together and went to the market and our numbers started to rise.”Over the 7 years, “we’ve done remarkably well,” says Rose.More importantly than the increase in visitor numbers from the Canadian market, Rose and his JTB have also put in place new strategies that will ensure ongoing visitor satisfaction levels with the Jamaica travel experience remain high, and return rates stay high as well. “We’re not only interested in the numbers increasing from Canada, but also customer satisfaction,” he says.He adds: “We firmly believe one of the reasons for our high return rate is that we take the time and invest the resources to ensure our retail partners have the tools to make sure their clients are in the resort that’s right for them.”Rose says he wants to thank everyone in the industry for all the support over the years. “I have made some incredible friends here, both in the industry and in the community. I will miss you all! Canada has been good not only to me, but to my family too. We have been proud to call Canada home for seven wonderful years, and we are truly going to miss it…other than the Toronto traffic and winters, of course,” he jokes.More news: Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesRose officially ends his stint as Regional Director, Canada for the JTB on Dec. 15 – “just before the brutally cold temperatures”.Seven years ago Rose arrived in Canada from Texas, where he was in charge of the Western USA market. Is he headed back to the U.S. in his new JTB role? Time will tell but if it’s another cold climate, he’ll be well-prepared, thanks to the lessons he learned here in Canada: “I now wear a toque as opposed to a hat.” Monday, December 3, 2018 Travelweek Group JTB’s Philip Rose says ‘until next time’ as he leaves Canadian market after 7 years Tags: Departures, Jamaica, JTB
