Driver of car which injured Donegal Garda was wanted

first_imgThe driver suspected of injuring a Donegal garda and killing an innocent man in Co Monaghan, was “wanted” in relation to another hit-and-run charge.Gardaí are investigating after father-of-two Stephen Marron (47) was killed when an out-of-control Audi A6 crashed into his parked car on Main Street in Castleblayney on Tuesday night.It has now emerged that the man arrested in relation to the incident was suspected of being involved in another car crash with the same garda in 2010. A 34-year-old man from Co Armagh was last night being questioned in relation to the crash that killed Mr Marron and left Letterkenny-born Gda Michael Devlin (31) hospitalised with serious injuries.A bench warrant was in place for the arrest of the man since January 2011, when he failed to show up at a district court in Co Monaghan in relation to a terrifying incident that happened on November 20, 2010.During the hit-and-run eight years ago, Gda Devlin was injured when a car collided with his patrol vehicle at Latlorcan, Co Monaghan.Garda Michael Devlin who is originally from Letterkenny.The driver then left the scene but was arrested nearby on suspicion of drink driving and driving without insurance. The suspect was charged and failed to appear in court on a second hearing. Then on Tuesday night – eight years after that incident – the suspect arrived in Castleblayney garda station on an unrelated issue.He was recognised by Gda Devlin, but the suspect then left the station and the garda followed him.When he tried to leave, Gda Devlin tried to stop the car but was dragged from the station to the Main Street around 500m away.Garda Devlin had only been in Castleblayney station because he had earlier been involved in investigating a separate drink-driving incident.Video footage shows the Audi car driving onto the Main Street at 11.21pm. As the car turns onto the street, the driver side door swings open, but closes before the car starts veering towards the Blue Skoda Octavia. The Audi appears to pick up speed right before impact with Mr Marron’s car, smashing into the rear.Mr Marron’s Skoda crashes into a pole while the Audi continues for several more metres before coming to a stop.As two Garda cars respond to the scene, the 34-year-old driver steps out of the car and puts his hand into his pocket, before raising his arms.Gda Devlin can be seen staggering from the passenger side of the car, and collapses before being helped by a passer-by. He was released from hospital yesterday and his injuries are not understood to be serious.Driver of car which injured Donegal Garda was wanted was last modified: November 30th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:arrestedcrashdonegalGarda Michael DevlinMonaghanlast_img read more

#SHRMLead Recap: Connect, Learn, and Share

first_imgIt was great to be able to meet up with some old HR Friends and meet new ones as well. My sister Stephanie, the one that likes HR and is also an HR Pro, and I were able to meet up and spend some time together. Spending time with Dave Ryan and his wife, Sheila (the real star of the show, sorry Dave!!). The #HR guy from Boston  Mike Spinale :). Also, our Ohio HR Friend Michelle Foster just happened to be in Boston at the exact same time and was able to meet up with us! And, of course, I can’t forget the time spent with the amazing Mary Kaylor, which is always a great time! Originally posted on HR Jazzy blog. You can check out all of my SHRMLead Tweets to get even more information on the speakers, sessions, and my time in Boston.I think SHRMLead was great for new professionals who might not have much of a manager/presenting background. If you are going to be the person delivering the information, it is important you understand the various ways to get it done and the best way your company understands.  Connect with the speakers and reach out to any of the SHRMLead Bloggers, we are always happy to help!Until Next Time …center_img SHRMLead just finished, it was a wonderful two days in Boston meeting great HR professionals and speakers.The weather was chilly, the food was delicious, and the conversations flowed. I’m thankful to receive the chance to attend SHRMLead, along with Carlos and Claire, as part of the SHRMLead Bloggers Trio!I decided on my sessions before attending the conference, this one wasn’t nearly as big as SHRM18, but I still wanted to be prepared and decide which sessions would be best for me and my development.Letty Kluttz (@SHRMLetty) opened SHRMLead with the message that it is important to Be The Lead in your career and take all steps to focus on your own development. I’ve said it before and still believe it is so true, we have many resources available to us and need to take advantage of them. From mentors, to reading, webinars, and basic conversations with other HR people, if you want to help your career and help your organization and employees, you need to take responsibility for continued knowledge.Claire Shipman was our first General Session Speaker and her talk was all about Confidence. More women are speaking up and being vocal about our careers. It wasn’t a woman’s only speech, because the men in the room also need to have confidence, just the right kind. I also think it was important for the men in HR to hear how they can help their coworkers, employees, and bosses or just a woman in general when it comes to career goals. One thing that Claire said, that hit me really hard, was the question of women believing something good happening to us being pure luck and not the fact that we really earned it. Although I know that some women do have these issues with confidence, when you really sit down and explore the situation, it is horrible that this is how we think.My first session was ‘Hit Your Bullseye: Communication Techniques to Collaborate, Execute and Succeed’ with G. Riley Mills of Pinnacle Performance Company. He provided a lot of insight on presentations in the workplace and how to make sure you always get your point across. Providing tips like only having 6 bullet points per slide. Another one that I felt was great for me was dealing with major publications from corporate coming down. They can be boring and hard to read for some of your employees. Spotlighting the most important keys points helps them understand it better and you still get the information that needs to be shared and discussed out to the employees. The rest you can provide to them via email or have a booklet and allow the employees to come to you with any questions.Being able to meet Dr. Karlyn Borysenko this go around was on my to-do list because I missed her at SHRM18. She has a brand new book, so make to check it out. She was one of the more lively sessions attended during SHRMLead and I loved it. One of the big takeaways from her session was that “Buy-in is not just for your boss, it is for the entire company” read it a few times because I don’t think this is discussed enough. I think we focus on our boss or leadership and not the entire change in the company.One of my favorite sessions was ‘Facilitating for Results: Demonstrating Leadership While Driving Impact for Your Audience’ with Angelina Darrisaw Cheeks. I found this session particularly helpful because a lot of ideas she provided, I feel, will help me in my upcoming training sessions with management. Training is probably my most favorite HR area, I love being able to help employees understand a new concept. Knowing my role as the facilitator and the feeling when the team member leaves the training with the exact outcome in which we were hoping makes it a great day.last_img read more

The Proctor at Home: Using Technology to Keep Online Students from Cheating

first_imgTags:#E-Learning#Product Reviews#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… As more and more students choose online courses either as alternatives to the traditional college experience or as a supplement, a lot of colleges have started to worry about how to prevent these students from cheating on remotely administered exams. According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, the U.S. Congress, too, is concerned about this and has added language into a part of legislation renewing the Higher Education Act that encourages schools to fight cheating more effectively.Technology While the legislation will not pass until later this year, a number of schools are already looking at high-tech solutions to proctor online exams for them. The most sophisticated of them is the Securexam Remote Proctor, a small device which features a fingerprint scanner, microphone, and a video camera with a 360 degree view. In order to start an exam, students have to prove their identity by fingerprint and during the exam, while the microphone and video look out for anything suspicious like an unknown voice or movement on the camera. While Securexam advertises its system as promoting ‘integrity and convenience,’ the device looks to be anything but convenient. It only works on Windows machines and only with Internet Explorer. Given how popular Apple’s computers are with students, this clearly creates problems for a large number of students.The Remote Proctor is currently being tested by Troy University and costs around $150.Other programs, like Kryterion’s Webassessor, use a somewhat simpler solution based on webcams and biometrics. Webassessor users human proctors that watch up to 50 students each and its software analyses a student’s typing style and alerts the proctors if there is a change (like when somebody else has taken over).Challenge QuestionsAxicom Corporation, which is being used by quite a few universities for their online courses, uses personal ‘challenge’ questions to establish the identity of a student. According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, these questions are based on data Axicom gathers from publicly available databases such as criminal files and property records (surely, nobody would want their friends to have to answer a challenge question about whether they were first arrested for arson in 1995 or 1997).PrivacyAll of these systems carry a good number of privacy issues with them, but they are also all relatively expensive. Then, of course, there are questions if cheating on online exams is even a real problem. As the article in the Chronicle of Higher Education points out, most teachers in online courses rely less on major exams and more on projects and group work anyway.Also, no matter what the technological solution is, chances are that an intrepid cheater will always find a way around this system. Should Congress decide to make systems like this mandatory, however, then we will soon see a whole new market open up and surely other companies will come up with more solutions. The question that remains, however, is if there ever really was a problem in the first place.What is your take on this? Do you have experience with these systems? Do you think online students need to be monitored more closely?Photo by Flickr user dcjohn.

Amazon Finds The Droids It’s Looking For

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting At Amazon’s scale, the business is all about efficiency. Amazon’s Web services allow it to manage almost every step of the online retail process, but the rubber hits the road in the fulfillment center. The only way for Amazon to move boxes as efficiently as bits – or close to it – is by supplementing its human workers with the busy choreography of warehouse droids.Photo: Joel Eden Photography/Kiva Systems Yesterday, Amazon announced its acquisition of Kiva Systems, Inc. for around $775 million in cash. Kiva makes warehouse robots. They’re sturdy, orange little droids shaped like a toaster on its side, and the various models can lift and carry 1,000 pounds or more. Kiva’s automatons and control software help warehouses streamline the management of their inventory.Amazon was already using the robots to keep its massive fulfillment centers organized, as were big-time customers including Crate & Barrel, Office Depot, Saks Fifth Avenue, Staples, Toys ‘R’ Us and Walgreens. They’re also used by Zappos.com and Diapers.com, other Amazon properties. It’s another big expenditure for Amazon as its profits sink, but there are major efficiencies to gain here.The Kiva robots can carry huge racks of warehouse inventory, so workers don’t have to walk miles a day shuffling things around. The people can stay in one place, taking care of the small and complex tasks like sorting, while the robots handle the large loads and the long distances.That’s a more efficient use of time and energy. But does that mean Amazon will need fewer people to run the fulfillment centers?An Amazon spokeswoman told the Wall Street Journal that no jobs will be eliminated as a result of the deal. Amazon employes over 56,000 people, but it doesn’t disclose how many of those work in fulfillment centers. The warehouses also require thousands of temporary workers, especially during peak holiday periods. With 69 of these massive facilities largely run by hand, Amazon is surely looking to robots as a more efficient option.The acquisition is not just a way to cut costs. Each Kiva system costs millions of dollars, and Amazon will now be selling them to other companies.But the long-term significance of the deal is about Amazon streamlining its own systems. Amazon has been investing heavily in facilities, including 17 new fulfillment centers last year. It’s also taking losses on every Kindle Fire sold, planning to make it up in media sales over time. It has to take up some slack somewhere. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market jon mitchell A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Related Posts Tags:#Amazon#web Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic…last_img read more

Shipping out: How Docker could scale up massively

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Follow the Puck How Myia Health’s Partnership with Mercy Virtua… Tags:#CERN#containers#data management#Docker#featured#IoT#machine language#Mesos#Mesosphere What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img The world is rushing to embrace Docker containers as the new, easy way to package applications. As cool as it is to package applications with containers, as I have written before, the biggest challenge companies face is actually deploying their Docker containers – especially at scale. Well, nothing spells scale in computing quite like CERN, the particle and nuclear physics research institute outside Geneva, Switzerland. It’s the home of the Large Hadron Collider and some 8,000 scientists from 500 universities. CERN and Mesosphere, whose pioneering concept of a data center operating system (DCOS) I wrote about in 2014, are working on a clever approach to solving the problem of scaling Docker containers in production. I recently spoke with Mesosphere co-founder and Apache Mesos creator, Benjamin Hindman to learn more.ReadWrite: What’s so challenging about storing and shipping Docker containers in production?Benjamin Hindman: One of the beauties of containers as a way to package applications is that you don’t need to include an operating system, unlike with a virtual machine image, which means you can keep them small. The smaller the image, the less that you need to store and the less that you need to send around the network. But it’s easy for container images to get huge; as you include all the dependent libraries and supporting files into the container’s file system the containers can get very big. And sometimes without even knowing it you end up adding things you don’t actually need. Docker uses what it calls layers to help reuse parts of the file system between containers. Using layers can help the containers stay small, assuming all of the containers properly build on top of preexisting layers. But accomplishing this takes diligence, and from what I’ve seen in practice, this rarely is the case.RW: Explain to me why Docker’s layers don’t work in production.BH: From what I’ve seen in practice it’s pretty rare that developers diligently build on top of each other’s layers. In fact, it’s almost too easy to create a layer that diverges in such a way that another developer won’t want to build on top of your layer because that will actually bring in unnecessary stuff for your application.The consequences of this can be pretty severe though.For example, consider two cases, one where everyone ends up adding some library to their container image independently and another where they build on top of a layer that includes the library. In the world where the library is contained within the layer you’ll only have to download the layer the first time you launch a container which uses that layer, and all subsequent containers will get to reuse that layer.In the world where each container image includes the library independently you’ll have to re-download the bits for the library every single time. This can be extremely wasteful, both on repository storage and the network. Repository sizes explode, choking network traffic with gigabytes of Docker downloads and storage requirements go through the roof.At Mesosphere we see customers struggling with this problem in production. We tested a number of alternative solutions.One approach was basically doing something where you pushed containers out to a few nodes and then they self-propagated using peer-to-peer technologies. That led to the insight that we should really just be looking inside the container image and shipping only the data that we haven’t previously shipped in the past. That is to say, focus on and address the content that we need within the container rather than focusing on layers which contain the content.RW: How did integrating CVMFS from CERN come about to solve this problem?BH: I was in Switzerland giving a talk at CERN and I got to meet with some of the team that had built CernVM-FS (CVMFS), a technology originally developed by CERN back in 2008.  At the time, CERN was looking into hardware virtualization in a similar way that people are trying out containers today — how best to deploy applications. Instead of creating images or packages, CERN wanted to use a globally distributed file system. This would allow scientists to install their software once on a web server, and then access it from anywhere in the world. When I was in Geneva their team gave me a demo of CVMFS and I could immediately see that it was a perfect match for containers and would solve our problem. CVMFS is perfect for propagating containers because it uses a combination of extensive indexing, de-duplication, caching and geographic distribution to minimize the number of components associated with individual downloads, and it’s all automated. This significantly reduces the amount of duplicate data that needs to be transferred and greatly speeds up the transfer of files that share data. We realized that if we integrated CVMFS with Apache Mesos and the Mesosphere DCOS we could massively reduce the redundant data transfers and make container distribution very fast. That was our ah-hah moment!RW: How does Apache Mesos and the Mesosphere DCOS deal with containers?BH: Mesos and the DCOS rely on what we call “containerizers.” Containerizers are responsible for isolating running tasks from one another, as well as for limiting the resources (such as CPU, memory, disk and network) available to each task.  A containerizer also provides a runtime environment for the task which we call a container. A container itself is not a primitive or first class object from Linux, it’s more of an abstract thing using control groups (cgroups) and namespaces. The Mesos containerizer supports all the different image formats that exist today, including Docker and appc.RW: How far do you think this integration of Apache Mesos and CVMFS can scale?BH: Theoretically it should scale to millions of containers. We’re testing now. The good news is that we already know that Mesos and DCOS can scale and that CVMFS can scale. And the actual integration work was straightforward. The way it works is that instead of downloading the entire image up front, our integration uses the CVMFS client to mount the remote image root directory locally. It takes as its input the name of the CVMFS repository (which internally is mapped to the URL of the CVMFS server) as well as a path within the repository that needs to be used as container image root.So now you can have multiple container images published within the same CVMFS repository. From the point of view of the containerizer, nothing changes. It is still dealing with the local directory that contains the image directory tree, on top of which it needs to start the container.The big advantage, however, is that the fine-grained deduplication of CVMFS (based on files or chunks rather than layers with Docker) means we now can start a container without actually having to download the entire image. Once the container starts, CVMFS downloads the files necessary to run the task on the fly. Because CVMFS uses content addressable storage, we never need to download the same file twice. The end result is a much more efficient way to deploy Docker containers at massive scale without blowing up storage capacity and choking network bandwidth. Matt Asay Related Posts last_img read more

India U-19 football team to clash with Frenz United A tomorrow

first_imgPanaji, Sep 22 (PTI) After registering a solitary goal victory over Felda United in early September, the India U-19 Football national team gears up to cross swords with Malaysian club Frenz United A in the second home match of the FAM-FRENZ Asia Champions Trophy 2015. The match is slated to held tomorrow at Vasco. With four points from a win, draw and a loss, the Indian U-19 team is presently at the third spot in Group A of the championship and Head coach Lee Johnsons boys will aim for a win tomorrow, which will propel them to the top of the table. Speaking at the pre-match media interaction today, Johnson emphasised on the importance of a winning mentality that comes through testing your grit against the very best. “Frenz United are one of the best club sides in South-East Asia and this gives us an opportunity to test ourselves against the very best. It will be a tough game. They will be well organised and well drilled. “We will have to make sure that we are switched on at all times and remain focused for the full 90 minutes,” Johnson said. “We have good quality within the squad and it is a chance for our players to showcase their talent in a competitive environment,” he added. Frenz United A is unbeaten in this years Asian Champions Trophy and is currently at the top of Group A with seven points. “The boys have worked hard in training and have shown an improvement in terms of their tactical understanding of the game. They need to work hard, stay focused and try to emulate what we have been working on in training,” he said. As a part of AIFFs plan to streamline the national team setup, the U-19 team has appointed Danny Deigan as sports scientist who has also been using the GPS System to test the fitness level of the boys. “The GPS system opens up a whole new portal to assess players based on their hard work and fitness. We have changed many things in recent weeks in order to enhance players development,” he said. PTI MCS ARS CM CM SDMadvertisementlast_img read more
