In commemoration of World Red Cross Red Crescent Day on Friday 8 May 2015, the Dominica Red Cross will launch a free Hazard App and First Aid App for iOS and Android phone users.The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement will use the occasion to celebrate and reaffirm the relevance of its fundamental principles of Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity and Universality – the core of its humanitarian commitment, values and mission.At the heart of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement is the mandate to assist communities affected by disasters, conflict or crisis, wherever and whoever they are. “Every time you see the Dominica Red Cross they are acting in accordance with the Movement’s Fundamental Principles,” director general, Dominica Red Cross Kathleen Pinard-Byrne said.“These principles safeguard our access to vulnerable communities, and enable us to engage with hundreds of persons through programmes such as Disaster Risk Management, Community Based Health and First Aid, Blood Donor Recruitment and First Aid & CPR services,” Mrs Pinard-Byrne added.Thus, these knowledge sharing applications are being promoted by the Dominica Red Cross, so that a greater percentage of the population can access information at any time on the main hazards which affect Dominica, the actions which can be taken to prepare for and respond to these events, and to recognise the signs and symptoms of the various injuries and illnesses so that appropriate action can be taken. These Apps also provide useful tools e.g. a torchlight, strobe light, alarm and alert notification which the app users can access.

first_imgUAVs were used in last year’s Funny River Fire to find hot spots at night. CEO John Parker of Integrated Robotics said the parent company of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles that he uses has shown increased interest in Alaska’s drone market. Parker: “ECA Robotics, they’re the oldest robotics company in the world they were formed in 1936 and they have worldwide coverage in over 300 robotics products, of which the IT180 is one. And ECA recognizes the value of doing the manufacturing in the U.S. for the U.S. market, they’re just gaining traction in the U.S. market.” FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Drone manufacturing in Kenai is moving towards a reality. Parker: “And it was flown at night and the infrared camera can see through the smoke and it can find hot spots and they plotted those. It uses GPS coordinations as well, so they find a hot spot, they coordinate it, that data is transmitted back to the ground station and then it was plotted on a map and given to the Incident Commander. Every morning they had a meeting at 7 o’clock prior to going out and resuming fire suppression, so they had this data each night for where these hot spots where, so they could marshal their resources and move them quicker and more effectively into the fire, and it’s why we didn’t have a real problem with this fire, and it was a huge fire.” Parker added that since a video of amazon dropping a package on someone’s front porch went viral it’s been difficult changing perceptions of drones from that of “invasive and spies” to “helpful”. Currently the IT180 is manufactured in France and he said some testing and evaluation of manufacturing locally will be done within the next month.last_img read more

first_imgThe sooner you realize that not all customers are created equal, the sooner you can maximize revenue. Start segmenting your customers today. Have you noticed your customer acquisition starting to plateau? It’s a problem Brant Cooper and Peter Vlaskovits, authors of The Lean Entrepreneuer, encounter often among SaaS companies. But it turns out the root of the problem is generally easily explained. Spending time segmenting your customers will allow you to quickly get back on the growth path.As Cooper and Vlaskovits lay out, you cannot view your customer base as homogenous.  They come from different places, use your product differently and have different values. As you begin to understand, in depth, each of the segments you’ve already won, you can begin to prioritize and grow those that are most valuable.More entrepreneurial advice from Brant and Peter:[new_royalslider id=”39″] Photo by: Martin CathraeAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to PrintPrintShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more
