News story: UK to lead charge in emerging maritime technology

first_img Over the last year it has been a privilege to chair the expert panel which has brought together leaders from across the sector, from other world-class industries, academia and promotional bodies, to challenge and support the development of Maritime 2050. The result is a wide ranging and hugely ambitious blueprint for Britain’s future as a maritime nation ensuring the economy continues to grow successfully into the second half of the 21st century. The recommendations published today will enable government and industry to work together to increase trade, attract investment and foster innovation across our thriving maritime sector, while progressing clean maritime growth. A new strategy launched today (24 January 2019) will set the UK as a pre-eminent global test-bed of emerging technology, enabling the country to capitalise on the economic potential of maritime innovations.The government has today set out its ambitions for the country to remain a world-leader in the maritime industry for the next 30 years.The Maritime 2050 strategy outlines a range of short, medium and long-term proposals, including developing technology, people, and infrastructure, to keep the maritime industry in the UK flourishing.These include establishing an innovation hub at a UK port by 2030, looking at ways to clean up emissions from the industry, and building on the world-class training already offered to seafarers.Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said: Aviation, Europe and technology media enquiries Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 For the first time the maritime sector has a real long term strategy – setting out what government and industry will do to position the UK as the world’s leading maritime nation over the coming decades in an increasingly competitive global context. There are monumental opportunities for our sector – whether on technology, coastal economic development, attracting more maritime business to our shores or for the people that underpin our success. The global ocean economy will double in value to $3 trillion by 2030. Competitor maritime nations are hungry for the prize, and Maritime 2050 will ensure that the UK is best-placed to capitalise. The task of turning these ambitious recommendations into reality rests on the strength of partnership between industry and government. Industry is committed to delivery. Maritime is a vital UK industry, bringing in £14 billion to our economy as well as providing thousands of new and exciting careers for people across the country. This strategy is a clear message to the world – we will continue to be a leading maritime nation for the next 30 years and beyond. We will be at the forefront of emerging technology and seafarer training and will capitalise on selling this expertise to companies across the world. New legislation will introduce a domestic framework for autonomous vessels to enhance testing in UK waters. The Maritime and Coastguard Agency is looking at what is needed to ensure the safety of these and other ships. This will set the UK as the best place to trial this technology which will then attract international business and investment, providing a boost to the economy.The UK will also pioneer the use of virtual and augmented reality in seafarer training as the government looks to establish a Maritime Skills Commission, bringing together leading experts to report in the existing and future needs of the industry – keeping it at the cutting edge of tuition.Hugh McNeal, chairman of the Maritime 2050 expert panel, said: A government-funded ‘People like me’ project will challenge the perception of the sector to attract more diverse talent. This builds on the work of the Women in Maritime taskforce, which is already working to increase the number of women employed in the industry.Harry Theochari, chairman of Maritime UK, said: Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 By 2030, the government will develop a Maritime Innovation Hub, supporting new technologies while also boosting regional productivity with new jobs. And later this year, a Clean Maritime Plan will set out ways the UK will lead the way in green standards to reach zero emission shipping as quickly as possible.

Why credit unions should be more like camels

first_imgI was recently listening to a TED Talks podcast while working out about the discovery of fossil bones in the Arctic Circle. (Am I getting old or what? I used to listen to AC/DC when I worked out; now I’m listening to educational podcasts!) But the discovery of these bones by paleo-biologist made me think of our credit union clients.First, the rest of the story about the discovery: the fossils that were found were identified as the leg bone of a large cloven-hoofed mammal and they were 3.5 million years old. After 4+ years of research and digging, it was determined that this discovery was the tibia of a dromedary. That’s right, a camel in the frigid cold of the Arctic Circle less than ten degrees from the North Pole. How could that be?Now here’s how it relates to your credit union:Think about the incredible evolution of that animal over the past 3.5 million years and its unbelievable migration from the northern and coldest part of Earth to some of the warmest -the Sahara Desert and eastern Asia.The camel had to re-use its cloven hooves from gaining traction in snow to gaining traction in sand. It had to reuse its famous hump as a fat-storage resource that helped it survive a barren cold climate to survive a barren hot climate. It had to change the shedding of its fur to progress from keeping it warm to assisting it remain cool.How has your credit union evolved over the past ten years, never mind 3.5 million years? Have you learned to re-imagine and retrofit the resources that you have at your disposal like the camel did?Many credit unions I see are still deploying staff the same way they did in the past, even though they need different and better talent today. Many are still conducting strategic planning the same way they always have and it doesn’t produce the new, better strategies they crave. Many are leading the same way they have in the past when younger generations of staff are more productive in different cultures and environments.Those scientists believe the camel they discovered was much bigger and looked dramatically different than the camels we know and love today. I’m not suggesting your credit union needs to make similarly dramatic changes. However, being willing and able to redeploy your “hooves”, “humps”, and “fur” could make the difference in your credit union evolving into a thriving species in future generations or falling to the grips of extinction.Also, think about how the scientist had to totally change their perspective on their discovery before accepting the fact that they had found a camel at the North Pole. They looked at data the same way they always had only to be frustrated with the lack of answers. It was only after trying a new process for assessing and interpreting that data that they came to their profound conclusion.How does your credit union process your data? How do you assess the facts that make up your organization? What new perspectives have you gained on your strengths and weaknesses over the past two or three years that might lead you to profoundly different outcomes?Many credit unions I know still deploy staff the same way they did in the past even though their delivery channels are changing radically. Many are looking at their membership through the same “one size fits all” model even though their current and potential members can be easily segmented into clearly disparate dynamics. Many are still adhering to stale, old processes that contradict members’ desire for convenience, speed, and ease-of-use.As new competitors enter our industry (some with far more robust resources than your credit union) we need to look at every aspect of our business from a new and fresh perspective. Steve Jobs instilled in Apple the concept of “Think Different” when they design a new product or launch a campaign. Richard Branson has engaged new teams at Virgin called “Disruptors” to challenge the manner in which they conduct all business activities. What has your credit union done to break the cycle of redundancy and sameness?To begin your process of evolution, like the camel, here are a few ideas:See your business through new lenses. Ask new members about their experience with you and their feelings about your brand. Do the same with non-members, whenever possible. New employees are also good resources for this information. Talk to other business and community leaders what they think about how you do business and how you compare to other financial service providers.Share that data with your staff. Brainstorm ways to be better. Don’t just rely on the same group of decision-makers (i.e., Senior Management) but get ideas from all employees – frontline, back office, middle-managers, facilities workers, everyone has a voice. It’s amazing how insightful your staff can be … if you just ask them!Challenge the current mindset. Assess all your operations and processes. Find out what works and what doesn’t. Try to be 50% better in everything that you do. Look at speed and accuracy. Consider quantity as well as quality. A combination of incremental improvements can make you 50% better overall so no improvement is insignificant.Keep the ball rolling. Once you start this “discovery” process, keep it going. Make it a part of the fabric of your organization. Track and report your improvement. Recognize and even reward successes. Don’t stop looking differently at your data or finding ways to better use your resources.Imagine if those scientists near the North Pole continued to look at their discovery through the same old lenses. They would’ve been limited to considering only those species known to exist in the frozen north tundra. Also imagine if the camel had not evolved and begun using its resources in new and different ways. It would’ve fallen to the fate of many of its brethren over the past 3.5 million years.Just as evolutionary biology is a dynamic field, so should the industry of financial services be dynamic. The successful scientists don’t remain static with their assumptions; they evolve and look at their discoveries in new and fresh ways. They reframe what they thought they knew based on current and different data.If your credit union becomes dynamic, adjusts to new discoveries, and reimagines your business model, like the camel, it too can stave off extinction and thrive in a new and different environment. After all, we’re all just one discovered tibia away from looking at our world in a whole new way.If your credit union needs to embark on a dynamic new evolutionary process, my firm would be happy to assist with your scientific discovery.

3 behaviors to stop

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr At all levels of our organizations – from the executive suite down – we’re feeling immense levels of stress. We’ve been working harder over the past six months to meet changing member/customer needs, pivot to more virtual offerings, and run as efficiently as possible.In times of crisis, the sense of ownership and wanting to make sure the final product is perfect can take leaders and managers down the path to micromanagement. But this isn’t good for you – especially if your workload has increased – or your team who are capable of handling their responsibilities.Leadership guru Dan Rockwell has a new post reminding overworked leaders and managers to stop these bad behaviors:Stop doing people’s work for them. An employee comes to you with a question. How often do you step in to take care of it rather than offer guidance? If it’s a task or problem you’ve handled a million times before, you might think it’s easier and timesaving for you to just do it. But, even though you can handle it, your employee will likely feel defeated and lose ambition to tackle similar problems in the future. Fight the urge to do it yourself and give the employee an opportunity to grow. The lessons your teammate will learn while working through it will make them – and your organization – stronger. continue reading »last_img read more

Trojans fall to Titans in midweek game

first_imgCould David slay Goliath? Could the slumping Trojans, fresh off a win over Stanford, topple No. 4 Cal State Fullerton in the teams’ final meeting of the season?Swinging away · Freshman shortstop Brett Lacey laced an RBI double in the top of the second inning. He went 3-for-4 at the plate Tuesday night. – Corey Marquetti | Daily TrojanMaybe on a better day, but that’s an optimistic phrase to which the USC baseball team (12-20) is tired of clinging to. The Trojans traveled to Goodwin Field on Tuesday night, but fell just short to Fullerton, losing 6-4.The Titans (29-4) are a powerhouse team. They’ve climbed the national rankings each time they’ve faced the Trojans this season and have only four blemishes opposing their 29-win record. For a Trojan team whose young potential talent has yet to be fulfilled, Fullerton represents what it one day might be.To put an end to that notion, the Trojans sent freshman lefty pitcher Sean Adler, who has been featured often this season as a reliever, to the hill for his first collegiate start. Adler, who had previously shown a glimmer of success over a near-invincible Titan team as a closer, looked to help his team capitalize on its Sunday win, which stanched a four-game losing streak.It initially seemed that the Trojans really would prove that they could beat any team on any given day if all the pieces fell into place, something that USC head coach Dan Hubbs has frequently pointed out this season.Two of USC’s freshmen helped the team jump ahead early, attempting to reverse the Trojan curse of being unable to get runners home.Infielder Blake Lacey got the first run across the board with an RBI double and would lead the team in hitting Tuesday night, going 3-for-4 with two RBIs.In the very next inning, outfielder Timmy Robinson shredded the first pitch he saw to left field with a homer that gave Adler a two-run cushion.But it wouldn’t be nearly enough.To his credit, Adler aptly handled the Titans for all of 2 2/3 innings before he completely collapsed, allowing the surging Fullerton offense to break open the floodgates. After allowing consecutive singles, Adler gifted the Titans a bases-loaded opportunity by hitting the next batter. Immediately following, he surrendered an even more generous gift: a back-to-back grand slam and home-run combination that put the Titans up by three.Hubbs yanked Adler off his brief starting gig for sophomore Nigel Nootbaar, who also had difficulty rescuing his team from a hellish inning. Nootbaar allowed a pair of hits and a walk that threatened to further blow open the inning but ultimately settled down for three more innings of scoreless relief.With the lead squandered, USC desperately needed to respond to stay in the game but couldn’t quite do it.The bases were never empty, and there were plenty of scoring opportunities by means of hit batsmen, a balk, hits and the occasional walk.That’s not to say there weren’t some hopeful moments: A few hitters were able to push the count to 3-2  and the team recorded two productive sacrifice flies that cut their deficit to two.  Granted, those two RBIs came in a bases-loaded, no-out scenario in which the Trojans could have really packed a punch.Winning Tuesday night — which didn’t seem infeasible for a while — would have been a tremendous victory for a young team still struggling to find itself.But that didn’t quite happen, and USC now walks away looking for another chance to assert themselves, this time in a three-game homestand against Arizona State starting on April 12.last_img read more

Oskaloosa restaurant is named for having Iowa’s Best Burger

first_imgIowans who love a juicy bacon cheeseburger will need to head for southeast Iowa and the Wood Iron Grille in Oskaloosa. The eatery is being named the winner of the 2019 Iowa’s Best Burger Contest. Kylie Peterson, at the Iowa Beef Producers Association, says there were some 500 restaurants nominated statewide, a long list that was narrowed down to ten finalists.“Ultimately, it’s the burger patty itself that’s being judged and they had the juiciest, the tastiest and the best-seasoned burger out of the top ten,” Peterson says. Iowans submitted more than six-thousand votes in the contest and a panel of judges visited each of the ten finalists, with the Oskaloosa grill coming out in first place. She says the owners were thrilled.“They’ve only been in business for about six months now so this is something they had their eyes set on from the beginning,” Peterson says. “They are just very honored and business is going to be booming for them.” The Wood Iron Original Burger features applewood smoked bacon, a sweet and tangy onion jalapeno jam and smoked cheddar cheese with a six-ounce, hand-pattied burger. Last year’s winner was Café Beaudelaire in Ames.last_img read more

Whatever the prospects of a new Pakistan emerging from this weeks general election expectations of a major shift in the countrys regional policies are likely to be ill-founded The prime minister-elect Imran Khan of the Pakistan Justice Party (PTI) in his victory speech on 26 July signaled as much stressing continuity in foreign policy The reasons for this are not hard to establish For decades Pakistans regional foreign policies vis-à-vis India and Afghanistan have been the preserve of the military and treated as extensions of national security Attempts by elected governments to craft independent regional policies or initiate dialogue with neighbours notably India have entailed heavy penalties Indeed many parties will have drawn lessons from the disqualification of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif whose efforts to normalize relations with India and end support for Islamic militants in Afghanistan incurred the wrath of the military It is no surprise then that the PTIs manifesto took care to reiterate Pakistans demand for a settlement of the Kashmir dispute with India in line with UN resolutions and to avoid issues of bilateral trade or regional connectivity Overplaying their importance had hastened Sharifs downfall Emboldened by its election victory a PTI-led government could take some tentative steps towards reducing tension with Indiaif only to concentrate on its domestic agenda and deliver on the PTIs ambitious promise of introducing an Islamic welfare state But if so the new government is unlikely to stray from the rigid parameters set by the military which remains firmly opposed to any dialogue which seeks to tie bilateral cooperation with India to the issue of Pakistans alleged role in sponsoring terrorism in the region These parameters could harden if radical Islamist partiesdedicated to conflict with India (through terrorist means if necessary) and which entered the electoral fray for the first timedecide to flex their muscles Though terrorist groups such as Lashkar i-Tayyaba (accused of masterminding the 2008 Mumbai attacks) which campaigned under the banner of the Allah o Akbar (God is Great) Movement performed poorly in the elections they have long enjoyed the support of the military as reliable proxies against India And while other parties such as Harkat ul Mujahideen also designated by the UN as a terrorist organization for its activities in Indian-held Kashmir chose not to contest the elections they were actively courted by the PTI during the electoral campaign The militarys control over Pakistans Afghan policy is also unlikely to be surrendered to the next government While the PTI supports Afghan sovereignty and has opposed the presence of US forces in Afghanistan it has been at pains to emphasize its common concern with the military to resist Pakistans strategic encirclement by means of a Kabul-New Delhi axis The PTIs call for dialogue with the Afghan Taliban also resonates with the position of Pakistans military which has been singularly reluctant to act against Afghan Taliban factions notably the Haqqani network or to eliminate their sanctuaries in Pakistan Admittedly the PTIs conciliatory stance towards the Pakistani Taliban (it donated more than $3 million while in power in Khyber-Pakhtukhwa to the notorious Haqqania religious seminary headed by a cleric known as the father of the Taliban) differs from the military which has waged a fierce campaign against the group Yet a PTI-led government is unlikely to risk its fortunes (at least in the short term) by contradicting the military and pressing for talks with the Pakistani Taliban The PTI will continue to favour the expansion of relations with China The party may resent the credit owed to former prime minister Sharif and his party for seeing through Chinas commitment in investing billions of dollars in the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor but a PTI-led government will not raise questions about a venture that enjoys near unanimous support in Pakistan and is stoutly defended by the military Despite the PTIs preference for closer relations with Iran (partly in defiance of the United States against which the PTI has led a vitriolic campaign) strategic considerations informed by the militarys close security partnership with Saudi Arabia are likely to act as a constraint In 2015 the military controversially overruled a parliamentary resolution that had rejected a Saudi request to send troops to Yemen saying it would compromise Pakistans future relations with Iran Real power in deciding the direction of Pakistan regional policies will continue to rest therefore with the military and not with the next prime minister That power could deepen in the event of a weak governing coalition or a fractious parliament which would leave the military even more room to impose its own vision of Pakistans regional interests This piece was originally published by Chatham House Contact
