Increased security presence at nearly 150 railway stations from Virginia to Vermont

first_imgAmtrak Office of Security Strategy and Special Operations (OSSSO), Amtrak Police, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel and officers from approximately 100 commuter rail, state, and local police agencies mobilized today for the largest joint, simultaneous Northeast rail security operation of its kind, involving 150 railway stations between Fredericksburg, Virginia, and Essex Junction, Vermont.The morning rush-hour multi-force security deployment was NOT in response to any particular threat or incident, but rather a demonstration of an ongoing collaborative effort to expand counter-terrorism and incident response capabilities up and down the Northeast Corridor railway system. Approximately 750,000 rail passengers ride along the Northeast Corridor and other rail systems integrated with the Corridor each day.Over the past few years, terrorist attacks, attempts and plots around the globe have specifically targeted rail and mass transit. The security implications of this activity in the United States, particularly in the region with the greatest concentration of users of public transportation, have spurred the formation of a strong coalition of transportation and law enforcement agencies in the Northeast Corridor area.”We are one team, with one mission, and that is to protect rail and mass transit passengers, patrons and employees from harm, manmade or otherwise,” said Amtrak Police Chief John O’Connor. “Without question, this operation provided the longest wall of security ever mobilized along the East Coast. We had hundreds of law enforcement officers across 13 states and Washington, D.C., report to duty as one force this morning, and that is our greatest strength.”The operation enabled TSA and law enforcement officials to further familiarize themselves with their local train stations and rail environment, while establishing a highly visible police and security presence. Amtrak Mobile Team security personnel and TSA agents were deployed to designated locations along the Northeast Corridor area to conduct security activities, including the use of explosive trace detection devices during random passenger bag inspections.Additionally, TSA’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response Teams or VIPR Teams, were mobilized at undisclosed locations to enhance security activities through the use of specialized detection technologies that identify anomalies considered suspicious. The main focus of VIPR operations is to deploy TSA resources to augment local security capabilities and facilitate deterrence through coordinated actions with local transportation entities and law enforcement.”It is critical that we continue to expand and exercise our collective ability to respond to a terrorist threat or incident,” said John Sammon, TSA assistant administrator, Transportation Sector Network Management (TSNM). “Today’s event offers the opportunity to demonstrate in dramatic fashion the force potential and security enhancement value of regional collaboration as TSA joins its professional colleagues throughout the Northeast to increase familiarization with the local stations and provide a highly visible security presence during rush hour.”Amtrak and TSA said similar unannounced exercises will occur in the future along the Northeast Corridor area as well as in other parts of our nation’s rail system as part of an enhanced security strategy. Today’s exercise will be reviewed and used as a method to evaluate personnel and resources required to respond to any future threats or incidents within the railway system.Today’s operation encompassed rail stations in 13 states, including Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, and West Virginia as well as the District of Columbia.

Hedonism is in the east – a new campaign of the Osijek-Baranja County Tourist Board

first_imgAfter a phenomenal campaign and concept #HeadOnEast as part of the Day of Croatian Tourism in Slavonia, the Osijek-Baranja County Tourist Board continues in the same tone with a new campaign called Hedonism is in the east!! using the well-known hashtags #HeadOnEastCroatia #VisitSlavonijaBaranja. The main actors of the campaign are people who offer tourist experiences in eastern Croatia, but also live them themselves every day. The goal of the campaign, in cooperation with local tourism workers, is to invite everyone to tour the east of Croatia and additionally position itself on the market, because we know that continental and rural tourism will be especially in demand this year. Vladimir Škrobo-Bajo invites guests to Čvarak fest in Baranja and explains why black Slavonian pig greaves are not black, Tomislav Žajdlik from the State Stud Farm Đakovo shows what a privilege it is to do a job that includes petting a Lipizzaner foal, and tourist blogger Mario Jukić reveals the beauty of river beaches Danube and Drava. A special experience of living in harmony with nature was presented by the famous photographer Mario Romulić, who discovered his new passion in the production of home-made food and the harmony that green space offers. All of them call for the discovery of the true hedonism offered by Slavonia and Baranja. It is known that Slavonians and Baranja give guests the most valuable gifts – a sincere smile and a warm welcome. While some adhere to the status quo and this crisis has given them such a great excuse, because there is no money, yet some tourist boards have jumped out and shown that it only takes a little will and effort. These videos did not require a budget, as they were recorded by the participants themselves, but it required a proactive reaction from the Osijek-Baranja County Tourist Board to present them with the concept and idea, and invite them to get involved. And so, with zero kuna, a new “guerrilla” campaign was created. Of course, it is necessary to have the trust of the local profession and the credibility that is built over the years, through communication and all other projects. 7 ambassadors of the east center_img “The hosts here become and remain friends. In return, guests very quickly begin to “divan” about local flavors, aromas and colors, about the charmingly slowed down rhythm of each individual pleasure, about the amazing combination of traditional and modern. Therefore, the path under your feet, the direction to the east of Croatia to meet hedonism”Point out the Tourist Board of Osijek-Baranja County. A total of seven films have been made, which will be promoted via social media. Thus, through self-directed videos / films, “ambassadors” of destinations such as Tomica Đukić, chef of Hotel Osijek and the Croatian national football team, world-class gymnast Robert Seligman or employees of the Kopački rit Nature Park, present how they spend their time visiting guests again. Hedonism is in the east. During the standstill of tourist, catering and other economic activities due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic, the Osijek-Baranja County Tourist Board designed a campaign called SLAVONIJA-20, in which the main actors are people who offer tourist experiences in eastern Croatia, but also they themselves live every day. Also, it’s great that the #HeadOnEast concept remains permanent, and which of course will only be upgraded, as is this campaign. Check out all seven short films at #HeadOnEastlast_img read more

Britain’s COVID-19 app: The game changer that wasn’t

first_imgAs Britain’s COVID-19 infections soared in the spring, the government reached for what it hoped could be a game changer – a smartphone app that could automate some of the work of human contact tracers.The origin of the NHS COVID-19 App goes back to a meeting on March 7 when three Oxford scientists met experts at NHSX, the technical arm of the UK’s health service. The scientists presented an analysis that concluded manual contact tracing alone couldn’t control the epidemic.”Given the infectiousness of SARS-CoV-2 and the high proportion of transmissions from presymptomatic individuals, controlling the epidemic by manual contact tracing is infeasible,” concluded the Oxford scientists’ paper, which was published in the journal Science two months later. Topics : By early May, transport secretary Grant Shapps was heralding a test of the app on England’s Isle of Wight. “Later in the month, that app will be rolled out and deployed, assuming the tests are successful, of course, to the population at large,” he said. “This is a fantastic way to ensure that we are able to really keep a lid on this going forward.”Pat Gelsinger, chief executive of VMware Inc, a Silicon Valley tech firm hired to develop the app, told a Fox Business television interviewer on May 8, “I tell you, we think this is the best one in the world and we’re really thrilled to be working with the NHS in the UK to help bring it about.”But by the end of May, government officials were downplaying the app. In an interview with Sky News, Hancock called the app “helpful” but said traditional contact tracing needed to be rolled out first. Quoting another official, he said, “It puts the cherry on the cake but isn’t the cake.”Behind the scenes, NHSX testers were discovering serious technical problems.The agency had opted to develop an app that collected and stored data on central servers that could be used by health authorities and epidemiologists to study the disease. It relied on a technology called Bluetooth to determine who recently had been near someone displaying symptoms and for how long.NHSX testers were finding that while the app could detect three-quarters of nearby smartphones using Google’s Android operating system, it sometimes could only identify four percent of Apple iPhones, according to government officials. The problem was that, on Apple devices, the app often couldn’t utilize Bluetooth because of a design choice by Apple to preserve user privacy and prolong battery life.The issue was no secret. Apple and Google had jointly announced in April that they would release a toolkit to better enable Bluetooth on contact-tracing apps. But to protect user privacy, it would only work on apps that stored data on phones, not central servers. The NHSX app didn’t work that way.The government insisted it had developed a successful work-around to overcome the Apple issue. But not everyone was convinced. The advocacy group Privacy International, which had tested the app in early May, “found it wasn’t working properly on iPhones,” Gus Hosein, the group’s executive director, told Reuters. But because of the government’s assurances, he said, “We just assumed we were doing something wrong.”Other countries, including Germany, decided they would change their apps to work with the Apple-Google toolkit. That raised another problem with the UK app — it likely wouldn’t be compatible with many other contact-tracing apps so British travellers wouldn’t be notified if they were exposed to the virus.On June 18, weeks after the UK app was supposed to be rolled out, government officials announced a dramatic U-turn — they would abandon the app being tested on the Isle of Wight and try to create one that worked with the Apple-Google technology. Work had already begun on it and they had learned lessons from the test, they said.NHSX referred questions about the app to the health department, which said, “Developing effective contract-tracing technology is a challenge facing countries around the world and there is currently no solution that is accurate enough on estimating distance, identifying other users and calculating duration which are all required for contract tracing.”A spokesman for VMware said it “is proud of the work we have done and continue to do to rapidly develop an application to support the UK’s contact tracing and testing efforts.”A government official expressed confidence the app would be ready by the autumn or winter — although initially, the official said, it might not contain contact tracing at all, but offer other services that are yet to be determined.center_img The Oxford researchers believed that a smartphone app could help locate individuals who didn’t know they were infected – and by alerting them quickly could reduce and even halt the epidemic if enough people used it. Within days of the meeting, NHSX began the process of awarding millions of dollars worth of no-bid contracts to develop such an app, government procurement records show.In the weeks that followed, ministers seized on the technology as a route out of Britain’s lockdown that began on March 23. At a Downing Street coronavirus briefing on April 12, health secretary Matt Hancock announced that testing had begun on what he called the government’s “next step – a new NHS app for contact tracing.”He explained that people could use the app to report feeling unwell and it would anonymously alert other app users who recently had been in close contact with them. On April 28, he said he expected the app to be ready by mid-May.Privately, some researchers who had proposed the app were dismayed that the government had stopped widespread testing on March 12, a decision they believed undermined the app’s effectiveness and public health in general. “We were very clear from the start that this thing needed to work with testing,” David Bonsall, a clinical scientist at Oxford who attended the March 7 meeting, told Reuters.last_img read more

CWI/PCL Four-day tournament… Jaguars beat Hurricanes by ten wickets

first_imgAFTER a defiant effort from Akeem Saunders, who stroked his maiden first class century, the Leeward Islands Hurricanes batting crumbled for a second time in three days to hand the Guyana Jaguars a ten-wicket win last evening in the seventh round Cricket West Indies (CWI) Professional Cricket League (PCL) Four-day encounter.Trailing by 268 on first innings, the tourists were asked to follow on by the Guyana Jaguars, and were bowled out for the identical deficit, leaving the Jaguars with just one run for victory.Akeem Saunders acknowledges his teammates after reaching his hundred.Saunders had anchored the middle-order, putting on 91 for the fourth wicket with Shane Burton (53) and 76 for the fifth with Jahmar Hamilton (23), but when he was dismissed, the visitors’ effort unraveled and the second collapse of the match continued with increasing speed. From 127-4, the visitors lost 6-141.It was a total bowling effort from the Jaguars, with Keemo Paul claiming 3-38, Romario Shepherd (2-33), Gudakesh Motie (2-79), Veerasammy Permaul (2-77) and Sherefane Rutherford (1-18), being the successful bowlers.The tourists were made to follow-on after being dismissed for just 149 in reply to the Jaguars’ first innings 417.Resuming at 114-9, 304 behind the Jaguars first innings total 417, the Hurricanes overnight batsmen Jeremiah Louis and Mervin Matthew put together a last pair stand of 35 runs before left-arm spinner Motie had Matthew caught at the wicket for 16.With 268 runs ahead, Leon Johnson rightly enforced the follow on and pacers Paul and Shepherd provided instant results with their pace, bounce and movement, claiming the wickets of both openers Montcin Hodge (13) and Chesney Hughes (8), at 26-2.Paul had Hughes edging one to Anthony Bramble on a delivery which had some extra bounce while Hodge was trapped leg before wicket.Soon after Motie pegged the tourists further back with the wicket of Devon Thomas; Motie benefiting from a fine Johnson catch at first slip.But Burton and Saunders then allied for a counter-attacking 64-run unbroken partnership for the fourth wicket until the interval, at 100-3.Upon resumption, the left-handed Burton went pass his fifty but departed soon after, caught at the wicket off Rurtherford.At the other end, Saunders brought up his fifty in company with Hamilton, and the pair then continued to frustrate the hosts until a power outage sent the players off the field.When play finally resumed some 40 minutes after, Permaul put down Saunders when the right-hander was on 87, but the pair added 76 runs for the fifth-wicket before Permaul trapped Hamilton plumb in front for 23.The 23-year-old Saunders then registered his hundred off 171 balls, but soon after he was dismissed, edging Motie behind, at 205-6. His innings lasted for 173 balls, inclusive of 12 fours and a six.Permaul then bowled Rakheem Cornwall (9) while Paul and Shepherd, who both returned for respective new-ball spells removed Terance Warde (29), Gavin Tonge (1) and Jerimiah Louis (16).Tagenarine Chanderpaul then ensured the victory with a boundary. Anthony Bramble was named man-of-the-match for his unbeaten 196.The tournament will break for the holiday season and will resume on January 4, 2018.GUYANA JAGUARS FIRST INNINGS 417Leeward Islands Hurricanes 1st innings (Overnight 114-9)M.

Buoyant Joseph avoiding numbers game after match-winning spell

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) – Fresh from his match-winning Man-of-the-Match performance, Alzarri Joseph, says he is not putting any limits on his fledgling career as he seeks to make full use of his potential.The 23-year-old pacer took four for 32 off 10 overs in a Man-of-the-Match performance as West Indies pulled off a comfortable five-wicket win over Ireland in the first One-Day International at Kensington Oval on Tuesday.Playing his 23rd ODI, the Antiguan recorded his best figures in the Caribbean and the second best of his career, behind the five for 56 he took at the Oval against England back in September, 2017. It was also the second time he took four-for at Kensington Oval – following his four for 76 against England three years ago.“I don’t want to set numbers on my career; I don’t want to set limits. What happens if you set targets and numbers and then you don’t reach them?” Joseph said.“My goal is to take as many wickets as I can, to win as many matches as I can for West Indies, to improve, to get better … to always better myself … to be the very best I can be.”He continued: “I’m feeling good about my performance today. I put in some really good work on the training ground and I worked really hard on the last tour of India so I got some reward today.“I’m not sure if I was back to top pace, or anything like that … that’s not my main focus at the moment. My main focus is consistency every time I bowl, to be on top of length and line.”Joseph entered the attack first-change after Ireland opted for first knock, and his first spell broke the back of the visitors’ batting.He was well supported by leg-spinner Hayden Walsh Jr, who took two wickets from his 10 overs, and had an economy rate of just three runs per over, in his first match for West Indies on home soil. Left to chase just 181 for victory, the Windies were carried by Evin Lewis who played a number of breathtaking shots in a sizzling run-a-ball 99 not out. He struck 13 boundaries and two leg-side sixes – both coming in one over for pacer Mark Adair.There was drama at the end as Lewis missed out on a six by mere inches, which would have taken him to his third ODI century.“I must say very well played to Evin, the way he went about the chase was great to see. We were all hoping that he got to the hundred,” Joseph noted.last_img read more
