Law enforcement officers from the Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Office, the Evansville Police Department and the Indiana State Police will join together to conduct this checkpoint.The location for Friday’s checkpoint was chosen based on local traffic collision data.

The upcoming checkpoint will be located within one of those areas.

Jobs, construction boom at Coega

first_img19 June 2013 Building projects at the Coega Industrial Development Zone outside Port Elizabeth have injected over R1.2-billion into South Africa’s Eastern Cape construction industry over the past two quarters, in the process creating over 2 500 jobs, the state-owned Coega Development Corporation (CDC) said last week. Six major construction projects are currently under way in the Coega IDZ, including Chinese auto maker First Automobile Works’ new R200-million plant, food service group Famous Brands Famous Brands’ new cold storage plant, DCD Group’s wind tower manufacturing plant, the addition of Coega Cheese onto the Coega Dairy outfit, Agni Steels’ R400-million smelter facility, and Rehau’s extension in the Nelson Mandela Bay Logistics Park. Industrial gas company Air Products South Africa is also about to begin construction of a R300-million state-of-the-art air separation unit in July, bringing the total number of projects being built to seven. “The global economic climate is still not stable, yet investment continues to flow into the Coega IDZ,” CDC spokesperson Ayanda Vilakazi said in a statement. “We currently have 20 operational investors, and once these seven construction projects are complete, we will be up to 27 operational investors by mid-2014.” Vilakazi said the Famous Brands project, which was nearest completion, was a prime example of the short conversion times between signing a lease to full operation at Coega. “The turnaround times are much quicker now than they were a couple of years ago, and we are able to construct buildings for investors relatively quickly, meaning that they move to operational phase within about a year of signing, depending on this size of the project.” Vilakazi said that FAW’s R200-million plant construction would create about 2 000 jobs over the year-long project, which was on track for completion in December. In its operational phase, the truck assembly plant would create a further 280 permanent jobs. According to Arnie van Jaarsveldt of WBHO Construction, the lead contractor on the FAW project, there was significant collaboration between the Chinese engineers and their South African counterparts working on the plant, representing “a coup for skills development and mentorship”. Vilakazi said that Agni Steels was also nearing completion of its R400-million steel plant in the industrial development zone. On completion, the high-tech smelting facility will produce mild steel billets from scrap metal. DCD Group, meanwhile, is in the early phases of its R300-million wind tower factory, which is expected to employ 168 workers and produce between 110 and 120 wind towers annually.

This is beneficial information for developers that need to know how many people are using older versions of Android, such as versions 2.3.7 Gingerbread that may not have certain capabilities that are in newer versions of the operating system. Google employs “flow visualization” in Analytics to show how a user got to the app and what actions they took within the app.  Views in Google Play: Referral Flow shows how many people have viewed the app in Google Play.Installs: Once figuring out where the traffic came from through the Referral Flow, Analytics tracks users that actually clicked and downloaded the app through Google Play. New Users: Goes beyond the straight download numbers to show people that have opened the app and begun to use it and become “Active Users.” Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagementcenter_img Tags:#analytics#Android#app development#Google Play dan rowinski Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

Aaron Finch compares batting collapse vs Pakistan to a ‘car crash in slow motion’

first_imgAaron Finch got philosophical after his team suffered a heavy 66-run loss to Pakistan in the first T20I in Dubai on Wednesday.Australia, who were chasing 156 to win the match, lost six wickets for just 22 runs inside 5.4 overs and were staring at their lowest-ever total in T20 cricket but Nathan Coulter-Nile’s 34 off 29 balls helped them score 89 before getting all-out.Speaking about the disastrous start, Finch said it was like “watching a car crash in slow motion”.”That power play was horrific. It was carnage. It was like a car crash in slow motion. Any time you lose five or six wickets in the power play it’s not ideal,” Finch told reporters after his side crumbled at Sheikh Zayed Stadium.Also read: Babar Azam, Imad Wasim star in Pakistan’s 66-run win over AustraliaThe tourists’ run chase was only resurrected by bowlers Ashton Agar (19) and Nathan Coulter-Nile, who scored 34, with the pair helping them avoid their lowest score in Twenty20 international cricket of 79 against England in 2005.Ashton Agar (19) and Coulter-Nile’s 38-run stand for the seventh wicket was the saving grace for the visitors in the end all other players batting Chris Lynn fell for single digit scores.Lynn, who scored 14, and opener Finch, who was bowled for a three-ball duck by left-arm spinner Imad Wasim said he accepted a lot of responsibility for the collapse himself.”I had the responsibility to get us off to a good start and set up the chase,” Finch said. “When you get out in the first over and don’t get the start needed, that’s not good enough.”advertisementFinch said the team would need to consider making some serious changes to their batting technique before the second game of the series in Dubai on Friday.His batting lineup, without the suspended Steve Smith and David Warner, was arguably their strongest available with Finch, D’Arcy Short, Glenn Maxwell and Lynn providing some power hitting at the top of the order.All four were bowled on what turned out to be a particularly benign batting surface.”I think when that many guys get bowled it’s obviously alarming, particularly on a flat surface that didn’t swing a hell of a lot,” said Finch who was out trying to cut a ball from Wasim that hit middle stump.”The batting was awful. But we can bounce back. We do have a lot of experience in the team and some good players. One bad day with the bat doesn’t throw everything out the window.”(With inputs from Reuters)last_img read more
