Police equipped with fingerprint identification system

first_img Share No two persons have exactly the same arrangement of ridge patterns, and the patterns of any one individual remain unchanged throughout life.Police officials here have confirmed that they are equipped with adequate tools, namely fingerprinting identification system, to effectively solve crimes. There have been reports that several crimes are unsolved due to the absence of advanced equipment and lack of training of officers in that regard. However, head of the Criminal investigations Department (CID) superintendant Ainsworth Irish dispelled these reports in an exclusive interview with Dominica Vibes News.“People are suggesting that the police in Dominica do not have the technology and the mechanisms to get fingerprints at scenes of crime that is not true. We have a cadre of trained fingerprint officers, we have the mechanisms,” he informed.Fingerprint Identification is the method of identification using the impressions made by the minute ridge formations or patterns found on the fingertips. No two persons have exactly the same arrangement of ridge patterns, and the patterns of any one individual remain unchanged throughout life.“If my office is broken into and the intruder came through a window we know exactly where to look for the fingerprint so when people say we are not trained in Dominica to do fingerprint this is not true this is a misnomer, that doesn’t exist,” Mr Irish said. Head of the Criminal investigations Department (CID) Superintendant Ainsworth Irish Irish disclosed that over 70% of crimes committed here are solved every year, which is a “high, good rate” and the fingerprint technology is testimony to that breakthrough. “We have gotten several other fingerprints in some unsolved crimes however, to identify the fingerprints you must have that in your reservoir”.When someone is arrested their fingerprint and photograph are and placed into a database. By comparing fingerprints at the scene of a crime with the fingerprint record of suspected persons, officials can establish absolute proof of the presence or identity of a person.But, the investigators are sometimes challenged in identifying who the fingerprint belongs to particularly in instances where “there may be a new criminal on the block” and his/her print is not in the system.“That is where the civilian fingerprint would come in so you could fill that into the automatic fingerprint system of identification so it minimizes and tells you where to look,” Mr Irish explained. Some of Dominica’s experts in fingerprint include acting superintendent Desmond Austrie, sergeant George Theophile and superintendent Ainsworth Irish among others. Fingerprints offer an infallible means of personal identification. Other personal characteristics may change, but fingerprints do not. It can be recorded on a standard fingerprint card or can be recorded digitally. Mr Irish also indicated that the video interviewing technology which was introduced here last year has also enhanced their techniques to help solve crime.

Tour guides receive basic Spanish-speaking training

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! Share LocalNews Tour guides receive basic Spanish-speaking training by: – May 17, 2014center_img Thirty (30) tour guides of Dominica have received training in Spanish speaking through a bilateral agreement between the Ministries of Tourism in Dominica and Argentina.As part of the Tourism Awareness Month, observed annually in May, the Discover Dominica Authority (DDA) is hosting a series of training sessions for tourism stakeholders, focusing on training and refreshing the skills of persons in various sectors of the industry.Last week taxi operators completed one week training in tourism and in the coming weeks there will be training sessions for hoteliers, vendors and other front-line officers such as Customs, Immigration and Port.The four-day specialized basic Spanish speaking training for tour guides was facilitated by Julia and Cecilia of the Ministry of Tourism in Argentina.According to DDA’s head of product development, Kathleen Cuffy, these training sessions shows the Authority’s commitment towards training.“We recognize the significance of training and particularly ongoing training, that’s the key; trainings one thing but we have to continue to sharpen our skills in various areas like Spanish”.“As tourism service providers, you provide excellent quality service to visitors and you should continue to do so at all times, hence the ongoing training that we prepare,” Cuffy said. She encouraged the thirty tour guides to “assess the pivotal role” that they play as individuals in the tourism industry.“You need to understand that the role of a tour guide is one of the most important roles in the growing tourism industry, basically you are an ambassador to Dominica; many of you are the first set of persons that who interact with our visitors on island”.The role of a tour guide, is particularly important, Cuffy added as the industry continues to evolve as many non-English speaking visitors are coming to our shores.“We are committed to training and we are happy that you made the commitment to attend the training,” Cuffy noted and encouraged the trainees to continue to “excellent and quality service” to visitors.“We hope that you will continue to do better at it because of the training you have gotten,” Ms Cuffy stated”.

Bandara Changi Uji Coba Remote Air Traffic Control

first_imgUntuk uji coba ini, CAAS memberikan kontrak tersebut kepada perusahaan pengelola lalu lintas udara Nats yang berbasis di Inggris dan telah mengelola bandara Heathrow London. Perkiraan untuk memulai proyek ini pada awal tahun depan dan menyelesaikan dengan memakan waktu 22 bulan.Kemudian akan dievaluasi kelayakan operasional sebelum menentukan teknologi yang cocok untuk bandara sibuk seperti Changi. Sejauh ini hanya bandara kecil yang mengadopsi teknologi serupa.Sebagai contoh Ornskoldsvik, sebuah bandara kecil di Swedia, adalah bandara pertama di dunia dimana penerbangan dikendalikan dari jarak jauh. Pesawat yang lepas landas atau mendarat di bandara tersebut dipandu oleh pengendali lalu lintas udara dengan jarak  hampir 170 km jauhnya, di kota Sundsvall.Adapun negara lain yang mempelajari hal tersebut yakni Hungaria, Inggris, Amerika Serikat dan Jerman. CAAS mengatakan, teknologi ini merupakan sebuah menara digital yang cerdas, dilengkapi dengan berbagai fungsi dan fitur, dapat membantu meningkatkan manajemen lalu lintas udara, keamanan landasan pacu dan operasi darat serta meningkatkan efisiensi operasional di Bandara Changi.Kontrak CAAS dengan Nats mencakup pemasangan beberapa kamera fixed-position untuk memberi makan gambar video langsung, dengan memberikan pandangan serupa terhadap pengendali lalu lintas udara yang sekarang dilihat dari menara kontrol. Percobaan ini juga akan menggunakan kamera canggih dan teknologi video-stitching yang memungkinkan tampilan informasi lebih baik.Seperti, kamera video akan dapat secara otomatis menggeser, memiringkan, dan memperbesar, untuk memungkinkan tampilan lebih dekat. Direktur Jenderal CAAS Kevin Shum mengatakan, dalam konser dengan drive Smart Nation di Singapura, kami memanfaatkan teknologi digital untuk mengubah industri penerbangan.“Kami sangat senang dengan kemungkinan dan tetap berkomitmen untuk bekerja sama dengan mitra industri kami untuk menyediakan layanan pengelolaan lalu lintas udara berkualitas tanpa mengorbankan tingkat keselamatan dan pelayanan,” ujarnya.Baca juga: Staf Bandara Changi Resmi Gunakan Kacamata Augmented RealityPelelangan untuk prototipe menara digital dibuka pada 28 Februari 2018 mendatang. Dari pelelangan ini pihak CAAS menarik tiga tawaran yang dievaluasi berdasarkan berbagai kriteria, seperti keahlian teknis, rekam jejak perusahaan dan daya saing harga.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedMengenal Bandara Tanpa ATC, Bisa Sembarang Mendarat dan Lepas Landas?09/09/2020In “Bandara”Digital Air Traffic Solutions, Saatnya Menara ATC Dikendalikan Secara Remote17/04/2017In “Bandara””Zero Mistake dan Tahan Tekanan,” Jadi Keharusan Bagi Petugas Menara ATC26/04/2019In “Bandara” Bandara Changi Singapura kian memantapkan penggunaan teknologi terbaru untuk segala aktivitasnya, baik untuk penanganan bagasi hingga yang terbaru penanganan lalu lintas untuk pesawat.

Jaringan Kereta Api Jepang; Modern Tapi Sistem Tiketnya Ribet!

first_imgKereta Cepat Shinkansen, Jepang. Sumber: wikipedia Tidak ada yang bisa memungkiri bahwa Jepang merupakan negara dengan jaringan perkeretaapian terbaik di dunia. Selain kehadiran si kereta peluru Shinkansen yang mendunia, kereta api di Negeri Sakura ini juga terkenal akan ketepatan waktunya yang sangat akurat. Sampai-sampai, jaringan kereta api di Jepang sudah dianggap seperti tulang punggung di sektor transportasi. Tapi tahukah Anda bahwa ternyata Jepang memiliki sistem tiket kereta yang sangat-sangat rumit?Baca Juga: Istilah ‘Chikan’ Masuk Kamus Internasional Berkat Tingginya Angka Pelecehan Seksual di Kereta JepangYa, banyaknya operator yang berkecimpung di dalamnya membuat Anda harus ‘mempelajari’ terlebih dahulu rute yang sekiranya hendak Anda lalui. Pada dasarnya seperti ini, masing-masing operator kereta di Jepang memiliki dua komponen tarif, yaitu tarif dasar dan surcharge. Dikutip KabarPenumpang.com dari laman kaorinusantara.or.id, tarif dasar sendiri merupakan bea yang harus kita bayar sebelum menggunakan jasa layanan kereta apapun di Jepang – mulai dari komuter, kereta jarak jauh, hingga Shinkansen.Ambil contoh Tokyo Metro yang punya tarif dasar senilai 170 yen atau yang kurang lebih setara dengan Rp23.000 untuk 1 sampai 6km pertama. Masing-masing operator punya perhitungan tarif dasar yang berbeda-beda dan biaya progresifnya pun tidak sama.Lalu komponen kedua yang harus dibayar oleh penumpang adalah surcharge atau biaya tambahan. Namun bea ini hanya terdapat di kereta-kereta dengan kelas tinggi (ekspres) dan tidak banyak berhenti seperti kereta komuter. Nah, lagi-lagi tiap operator punya besaran surcharge yang berbeda-beda.Dari sini, tarif kembali di pecah – ada tiket bernomor, tiket tanpa nomor alias berdiri, dan tiket green car atau yang akrab disebut kelas bisnis. Berbeda dengan di Indonesia, di Shinkansen Jepang hampir tidak ada bedanya antara tiket bernomor dan tiket tidka bernomor. Jika Anda melihat ada bangku kosong sedangkan Anda memegang tiket tanpa nomor, Anda diperkenankan duduk. Semisal penuh, Anda dipersilakan untuk berdiri di bordes – satu hal yang sudah hilang dari budaya kereta api Indonesia.Baca Juga: Bukan Toko Serba Ada, Tapi Stasiun di Jepang ini Memenuhi Semua Kebutuhan Anda!Melihat penjelasan di atas, Anda jangan langsung panik dan akhirnya mengurungkan niat untuk menggunakan kereta api selama di Jepang. Bagi Anda yang pertama kali ke Jepang dan ingin menjajal si ular besi khas Negeri Para Samurai ini, ada baiknya Anda mengunduh aplikasi Navitime di platform Android dan iOS.Cara kerjanya cukup sederhana, cukup masukan destinasi awal dan akhir, lalu semua informasi terkait perjalanan tersebut akan tersaji untuk Anda – lengkap dengan besaran harga yang harus Anda bayarkan.

K5 million for SHP facilities

first_imgThe Government has set aside K5 million to develop sporting facilities in Southern Highlands province for the PNG Games next year. Implementation is focused on developing sporting facilities in preparation of provinces to host future PNG Games. Details of the Southern Highlands facilities were announced by National Planning Minister Sam Basil when he presented details of his Capital Investment Budget in Parliament last Thursday. Mr Basil said that capacity building programs would also be conducted to up-skill athletes from grassroots level up to national and international levels. He said the project components were construction of the sports facilities, project preparatory work; and capacity building and up-skilling of athletes from the grassroot level up to the national level. “This program will create opportunities and talent pathways for Papua New Guineans through capacity building programs by identifying raw talents at ward level up to the provincial level, also by providing state-of-the-art sporting facilities that will be used by the athletes for the upcoming PNG Games and any other sporting events,” he said. Post-Courier had not been able to contact anyone in Southern Highlands Province this week to comment on the Games preparation. The high performance centre for sportsmen and women has been allocated K2 million in the Public Investment Program brought down by National Planning Minister Sam Basil last Thursday. Basil said in his Capital Investment Budget papers following the 2020 Budget tabled earlier in Parliament by Treasury Minister Ian Ling-Stuckey that the PNG Sports Foundation has the capacity to implement this project, which started this year, with support from relevant key stakeholders. He said the objective to construct a fitness centre for Team PNG in preparation for any international events by improving the ground and first floor of the Sir John Guise Indoor Stadium which will create spaces for active fitness, yoga, aerobics, classroom training spaces, gymnasium for training equipment, physio-therapy clinics, massage rooms and office space for administrative functions. An old warehouse at Four-Mile was used during the 2015 Pacific Games as the centre for high performance. After the games, the old facility was shut down and high performance was moved to the Taurama Aquatic Centre where high performance training was delivered to Team PNG for the FIFA women’s under-20 World Cup in 2016. Basil said the project was mainly to upgrade and improve the centre for sporting enhancement activities.last_img read more

I don’t think that they have worn all navy in a while.First off, the Titans haven’t worn the navy jerseys in a few years (I believe since 2008). Secondly, other than maybe wearing white on white, they haven’t worn the white pants since Vince Young’s rookie season. When the navy was worn, it was either mono-navy or navy over columbia. The Titan’s white pants now only seem to be worn with the navy alts with the away jerseys. I don’t think that they have worn all navy in a while.>>>>They haven’t worn navy all season, let alone all-navy. They’ve only worn 2 combo’s in 2011 … lt blue on dk blue pants at home, and white with lt blue pants on the road. A bit odd considering they used to change it up every week in prior seasons, they were kinda like the Oregon of the NFL, we all wondered what combo they’d be wearing each week …. If any teams needs a new direction in uniforms, it’s them. Their mono light blue didn’t look very good IMO. I liked their navy with white … it had just enough light blue without overkill.Yeah, at first I hated the navy, but looking back, it’s a pretty neat look. I actually wanted Nike to do something with the Titans but I haven’t heard anything about that. Plus, as long as Bud Adams is owner, I don’t see anything changing.

Best/Worst/”Meh” of 2015 MLS Jersey Week

first_imgAll Activity Posted April 20, 2015 You’re only about a month late on this… UC! Followers 1 I keep hearing people (on these boards and at Rapids matches) saying “why yellow/gold?” so here is my answer. 1) Already used blue for the flag motif, can’t use red so yellow is the obvious choice. 2) yellow away shirts are very common for Arsenal. We already wear white sleeves because of Arsenal so why not wear yellow and blue like Arsenal? (for those of you who don’t know, the Rapids and Arsenal are both owned by the Kroenke’s.) I for one love the shirt and am glad the rapids kept with the clash away and not the White that is so common in MLS.After seeing the kits in action, I actually don’t think it’s that bad anymore.

Considering how I was a uniform nut BEFORE discovering MLS Jersey Week, this is right up my alley. So, without further ado…Best:1. Crew SC Secondary – LOVE the black jersey, and also love how they worked in yellow and white.2. Impact Secondary – Looks much more professional and much cleaner.3. Red Bulls Primary – The first real change to the home jersey, I’m really digging the red sleeves.4. Orlando City SC Primary – As a Ravens fan, I’m a little partial to purple, but that kit looks really sharp.5. Sounders Secondary – The white is a huge improvement over the navy from last season imo. Also a huge fan of the lime green adidas stripes.Meh:1. Chicago Fire Secondary – I know it ties into the flag and all, but I’m just not a huge fan.2. DC United Secondary – Even though last year’s all white was a little plain, not a huge fan of the red/white “blinds” effect.3. NE Revolution Secondary – See Fire above.4. NYCFC Primary/Secondary – I don’t hate the Man City-esque primary, but I would have loved to see pinstripes incorporated into the uniform. As far as the secondary, I would’ve loved to see more orange.5. Union Secondary – 6. Galaxy Secondary – Not bad but the black third from last year would’ve made a PERFECT secondary this year.7. Timbers primary – Nice to see them get away from the “thick middle stripe” design they had used for years, but not executed the best.8. RSL Secondary – Barely different enough to even warrant a reaction.9. SKC Primary – Not bad but last year’s was better.10. Whitecaps Primary – Wasn’t a huge fan of the diagonal stripes from last year, and also not a huge fan of the mountaintop design either. Worst:1. FC Dallas Secondary – May be an unpopular opinion, but I prefer the thicker hoops, and not a huge fan of the new Advocare logo.2. Dynamo Primary – I generally hate gradient unis, and this is no different.3. Orlando City SC Secondary – I actually like this uniform, but this lands here based on a missed opportunity. Could’ve used red, gold, etc.4. Toronto FC Primary – Took away the maple leaf sublimated design to give us essentially a plain red jersey. Whoopee.5. Rapids Secondary – I get the ties to the Colorado flag, but didn’t last year’s secondary also supposedly have ties to the flag? The blue looked much, much better than the yellow imo.

Even the flag-inspired trim on the navy is better than sticking a corporate logo in the middle of the Chicago flag.All that said, just about anything beats the oatmeal can primaries, and the socks are pretty cool.

Rapids Secondary – I get the ties to the Colorado flag, but didn’t last year’s secondary also supposedly have ties to the flag? The blue looked much, much better than the yellow imo. A few things I disagree withA. If you love the Crew secondary, you should also love the NYCFC secondary as well. That may be hands down the best secondary kit in MLS.B. Houston primary is a “Best” for sure. After 2 years in a primary so boring, it looked like a training kit, they were one of the few teams that tried to push the design envelope. I love it when teams do this, Sometimes it work, other times it doesn’t. In Houston’s case, the Creamsicle fade and diamond pattern look beautiful. In fact, I would not be surprised to see Nike attempt to use this in some form for Clockwork Oranje. (calling my shot here) C. OCSC – Meh – First off, who cares if you’re a Ravens fan. If you are going to give an unbiased opinion, you shouldn’t be partial to a color either. OCSC went the safe route with both kits, which look like a standard, team-colored Tiro template. Houston, DCU, and LAG also used this same Tiro template …look at how much better their kits look. They tried, Orlando parked the bus.D. Montreal – Meh – seriously, this league is plagued with typical white secondary kits. A clash kit does not automatically have to be white. It can be Rose City Red (PTFC)E. DCU – Best – If you look closely, both DCU and LAG used Tiro 15 template kits with the same exact pattern …but because Red over White has more contrast, DCU’s version looks better than the Blue on Blue LAG secondary.F. Dallas – Meh – I like the thinner stripes but unfortunately, this kit instantly reminds me of QPR, as it would any other football fan. And Adidas doesn’t go all the way with hoops so the design looks incomplete in the back, as usual. And furthermore, SKC basically stole Dallas’ thunder with their own Indigo/Sky take on the hooped/horizontal striped theme, which looked so much better than anything Dallas has ever come up with.G. Caps – Meh – Unfortunately for them, in a league plagued with white shirts, they’re primary kit is white. Instead of just trucking out a white kit, they atleast tried to mix thing up with the faded pattern up top, which looks good.H. SKC – Worst – Another team that tried to push the envelope as they continually do (they’re becoming the fashionable Olympic Marseille of MLS). This time, the button-up collar is a nice touch but the pattern does not work.I. New England – I love that they tried to use the NE flag to base their secondary on instead of trucking out a white jersey (like Montreal) but it could have been done so much better. 0 4,276 posts Link to post Crabcake Crabcake 1,699 Share this post Favourite Logos:Caps’ weagle, Orioles Cartoon bird Posted April 19, 2015 359 Location:Ohio Members Posted April 9, 2015 Share on other sites Favourite Logos:Caps’ weagle, Orioles Cartoon bird Followers 1 Link to post Share this post Share on other sites mattb6 mattb6 153 677 0 NYCdog Favourite Logos:XFLSan Francisco 49ers Location:Guess. Location:Guess. 66 Posted April 20, 2015 Location:Guess. Location:Guess. I keep hearing people (on these boards and at Rapids matches) saying “why yellow/gold?” so here is my answer. 1) Already used blue for the flag motif, can’t use red so yellow is the obvious choice. 2) yellow away shirts are very common for Arsenal. We already wear white sleeves because of Arsenal so why not wear yellow and blue like Arsenal? (for those of you who don’t know, the Rapids and Arsenal are both owned by the Kroenke’s.) I for one love the shirt and am glad the rapids kept with the clash away and not the White that is so common in MLS. 0 Share on other sites 1,699 1,699 Location:Boston Crabcake 0 Posted April 19, 2015 Share this post 677 0 Crabcakelast_img read more
