Bird Canada Launches e-Scooter Pilot in Toronto’s Distillery District

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 7 settembre 2019

Bird Canada today announced the launch of a Bird e-scooter pilot in Toronto’s Distillery District. The pilot will run until 15, and will operate from 4pm – 8pm on weekdays, and 10am – 8pm on weekends. Using a virtual barrier known as a geofence, the pilot will take place in a contained and safe area within the Distillery District.While e-scooters are not yet approved for use by the Province of Ontario, the pilot will provide visitors, tenants, and residents in the privately owned Distillery District with an opportunity to take Bird One e-scooters for a test ride, learn and practice micro-mobility vehicle basics, speak with Bird representatives, and receive Bird swag.“We see e-scooters as an important transportation option for our tenants, as well as those who are visiting, working, and living in key cities across Canada, and are very pleased that we could help facilitate this pilot through our collaboration with Bird Canada,” said Gordon Wadley, Senior Vice President, Commercial Properties at Dream.
The Distillery District – which is home to many cafes, restaurants, and shops housed within heritage buildings of the former Gooderham and Worts Distillery – is co-owned by Dream, an investor in Bird Canada through Alate Partners (a real estate technology initiative of Dream and Relay Ventures).“The response we’ve received following the launch of our Bird e-scooters in Calgary and Edmonton has been incredible,” said Stewart Lyons, CEO of Bird Canada. “So, what better way to give those living in or visiting Canada’s largest city a taste of what is hopefully to come once e-scooters are approved for use in Toronto than to run a brief pilot in Canada’s premier arts, culture, and entertainment destination.” The easy to use and fun to ride Bird One e-scooters provide a safe ride by putting the rider at the center of the e-scooter experience. The e-scooters are built to meet the demands of Canadian cities with custom-designed semi-solid tubeless wheels that deliver a smooth, comfortable, and controlled ride. Given Bird’s focus on responsible riding, those that participate in the pilot will also receive safety information outlined within Bird Canada’s s.h.a.r.e tips for safe riding.

The Franklin Square and Munson Fire District

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 5 settembre 2019

Whereas, the attacks of September 11, 2001, are inextricably and forever tied to the Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department;
Whereas, on September 11, 2001, while operating at the World Trade Center in New York City, firefighter Thomas J. Hetzel, badge #290 of Hook and Ladder Company #1, Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department of New York, was killed in performance of his duties, along with 2,976 other emergency responders and civilians;
Whereas, members of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department were called upon to assist in the subsequent rescue and recovery operations and cleanup of the World Trade Center site, afflicting many of them with life-threatening illnesses as a result of breathing the deadly toxins present at the site;
Whereas, the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District recognizes the significant and compelling nature of the petition before the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York reporting un-prosecuted federal crimes at the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, and calling upon the United States Attorney to present that petition to a Special Grand Jury pursuant to the United States Constitution and 18 U.S.C. SS 3332(A);
Whereas, the overwhelming evidence presented in said petition demonstrates beyond any doubt that pre-planted explosives and/or incendiaries — not just airplanes and the ensuing fires — caused the destruction of the three World Trade Center buildings, killing the vast majority of the victims who perished that day;
Whereas, the victims of 9/11, their families, the people of New York City, and our nation deserve that every crime related to the attacks of September 11, 2001, be investigated to the fullest and that every person who was responsible face justice;
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire District fully supports a comprehensive federal grand jury investigation and prosecution of every crime related to the attacks of September 11, 2001, as well as any and all efforts by other government entities to investigate and uncover the full truth surrounding the events of that horrible day.

Grant County Public Utility District Launches Accruent Engineering Information Management Solution

Posted by fidest press agency su giovedì, 21 giugno 2018

Accruent, the world’s leading provider of physical resource management solutions, announced today that Grant County Public Utility District, has launched Accruent’s engineering information management solution to manage its growth in the inventory of documents, including more than tens of thousands of engineering drawings.Grant County Public Utility District (Grant PUD) was established in 1938 to provide power service to all county residents in the central part of Washington State. Today, Grant PUD serves approximately 40,000 customers and has the capacity to generate more than 2,100 megawatts of clean, renewable energy. Grant PUD’s Vision 2021 plan emphasizes data-based decision making – an approach to sustain the affordable rates and economic opportunity that locally-owned and controlled hydropower has brought to Grant County.“While Grant PUD is a mid-size utility, we have the needs of a much bigger utility,” said Susy Anderson, ECM Project Manager, Grant Public Utility District. “Implementing Accruent’s solution helps our teams to work collaboratively, complete assignments efficiently, and manage compliance with federal regulations.” Initially, three departments – Power Production Engineering; Transmission, Substation and Automation; and Telecommunications – will use the software. One of the key capabilities for Grant PUD was more security and control for their Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) documents. As a power company, they must follow the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Reliability Standards which are federal regulations related to the security of critical assets.
“Implementing technology advancements was a key initiative for Grant PUD to support its growth,” said John Borgerding, CEO, Accruent. “Accruent’s solutions can help utilities like Grant PUD become even more efficient, reducing costs and rework to provide even greater value to their customers.”In addition, Accruent’s solution helps Grant PUD by supporting concurrent engineering, integrating with IBM® Maximo® for maintenance management, and offering role-based security, workflow and approval, version and revision control, data backup, multiple search capabilities, and the ability to view engineering drawings without AutoCAD. Using Accruent’s solution, Grant PUD can increase management visibility, provide better security and control of their CIP documents, reduce project timelines, and improve project performance.IBM and Maximo are trademarks of International Business Machines Corp., registered in many jurisdictions worldwide.

Municipal Elections in Vienna

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 10 ottobre 2010

In Vienna, Austria, 20,7 % of the population are not entitled to vote for the city council, because they are not Austrian citizens. In some districts of Vienna, almost 70% of the population cannot even vote for their district council, because they are not EU citizens. This massive exclusion from the polls has become a major problem for democracy. This deficit in Austrian democracy became a European problem in February 2000 when the extreme right Freedom party became part of the government. Since then, Austria has been setting the pace for the shift to the right throughout Europe. It is high time to repair democracy.
For the local elections on Sunday, 10 October, ENARA — the European Network Against Racism Austria — has launched a vote exchange campaign: the Wahlwexel ( The Wahlwexel gives the possibility to actually vote to people who are excluded from the polls. The principle is simple, easy, and legal. One person, who is entitled to enter the polling booth, passes the decision for whom to vote to a person who is not entitled to vote. This simple concept and campaign created quite a turbulence in Austria, where the right for immigrants to vote is stricty denied by the majority. The nationalist voices were helpless because Wahlwexel cannot be prohibited. The effect of the campaign was to raise awareness for the significant lack of democracy in the heart of Europe. A debate about democracy has been set in motion.
Next, the Wahlwexel campaign will be promoted on the European level with our partners in the European Network Against Racism. The age of the nation-state is over. We live in a globalised world. Therefore political institutions have to adapt to modern times or see the demise of no democracy. The right to vote cannot be restricted only to citizens any more, but has to become a right of all residents throughout Europe. The EU has already promoted the right to vote for residents on a local and regional level. This process of democratisation has to go on and reach national and supranational levels, because most important decisions are taken there. If the EU allows undemocratic systems excluding major parts of the population from political participation, it will fail in its attempt to bring peace, democracy and wealth to its members. Instead, racist hatred will prevail as can be seen in Austria and other European countries today. A movement by civil society against racism in Austria plays a crucial role for Europe.
