A LIVE Demo of Teleportivity Deployed in a UNC Classroom

first_imgTHIS IS A PROMOTED POST FROM TELEPORTIVITYLast month, I wrote about Teleportivity, a scalable and fully integrated help desk solution. Here is a takeaway from that article from a University campus help-desk perspective:“We need to fix this stat: On university campuses, fewer than 10% of Level 1 support inquiries and service calls are successfully answered. That means the other 90% of problems go unresolved. If this doesn’t reveal there’s a bandwidth problem, we don’t know what would. But don’t blame AV/IT tech managers for this — when you think about all the technology on a university campus, it would seem nearly impossible to wrangle all the support needed from manufacturers/integrators to keep the operation running smoothly, all the time.”UNC recently deployed Teleportivity in an active-learning classroom in the Hussman School of Journalism and Media, and you should 100% watch this video in which I do a LIVE demo. We actually installed TWO solutions from Teleportivity at UNC: the video help point solution and the QR codes and NFC tags for live information solution.last_img read more

Beer Plus Nap Equals DWI

first_imgSouthold Town Police probably did a double take when they passed a 2014 Dodge Ram parked on Route 58 with the engine running and someone in the driver’s seat at around 7:13 AM on Sunday, May 12.They said Nelson Coreas-Fuentes of Greenport was indeed dozing, and a can of Corona White was clearly visible in the truck cab. Police said they ascertained Coreas-Fuentes had been drinking excessively and charged him with driving while intoxicated. He was processed and held for arraignment.Two mornings earlier, Daniel Scalia of Cutchogue was arrested on the same charge. Police said Scalia was headed northbound on Skunk Lane when he apparently lost control of his vehicle and struck a concrete pillar/driveway. He also mowed down several mailboxes before finally coming to a halt. Scalia allegedly tried to flee the scene but police spotted him near Eugene’s Road and took him into custody.Police have been looking for whomever has been rifling through parked cars in Greenport Village for the better part of a year. They received a tip in April and made an arrest on May 12. Sheryl Davis, 50, a local woman, was implicated in the theft of some loose change from an unlocked vehicle on April 11. She is suspected of “multiple larcenies” and the investigation is continuing.A Montauk man went on quite the shopping spree at Rite Aid on Route 25 in Mattituck on the morning of May 13, police said. The trouble was he allegedly didn’t pay for the goodies. Vincent Liebenow had a treasure trove of makeup, including lip gloss, eyeliner, and mascara — 32 items in all, according to police. A staff member noticed and police were called — they said they located Liebenow at a nearby bus stop. Police did not itemize charges lodged against him.rmurphy@indyeastend.com Sharelast_img read more

Special ships fly with Liebherr

first_imgThe ships in question are known as cogs and first appeared in the 10th century, and were widely used from around the 12th century. They are fitted with a single mast and a square-rigged single sail.The H.N.Krane LTM 110-5.2 was used to lift the cogs from the water for storage on dry land, ahead of the winter season.In spring next year, H.N. Krane will again deploy a Liebherr crane to return the cogs, which weigh around 22 tonnes, to the water.For over 25 years, mobile cranes from H.N. Krane have been mobilised twice per year to hoist the cog boats used in the Störtebeker theatre production; the cranes are also used to erect a large number of sets that comprise the stage on Rugen.The Rostock-based company has also acquired a Liebherr LTM 1090-4.2 crane, bringing its total fleet to around 40 mobile cranes.www.liebherr.comwww.hn-krane.delast_img read more

Real Madrid To Face Who At The Third Straight UCL Final?

first_imgKarim Benzema scored twice at the Bernabeu yesterday to lift Real Madrid to a 2-2 draw with Bayern Munich and 4-3 on aggregate on a night filled with drama and all that makes football the beautiful game.Yesterday’s win took the defending champions to their third straight final in the competition in which they hold the records as the most successful club. But it was not an easy night for the Zinedine Zidane side.Bayern Munich came into the game determined to right the wrongs they committed in the first leg, which they lost 1-2 at home in Munich. And they gave their fans a lot of hope in the third minute when Joshua Kimmich opened scores for the Bavarians.However, Benzema drew Madrid level eight minutes later through a powerful header that left goalkeeper Sven Ulreich floundering.Ulreich made a monumental mistake in the 46th minute that gifted Benzema a second goals and one leg in the final.James Rodriguez, whom is on loan from Real Madrid, restored parity, but Bayern could not find the one more goal they needed to end Madrid’s two-year reign as European champions.The German giants were left to rue a string of errors and missed chances over the two legs as they were dumped out of the competition by Spanish opposition for the fifth year in a row, while Madrid will now have the chance to become the first team since Bayern themselves in 1976 to win the trophy three years in a row when they face either Liverpool or Roma in the final.last_img read more

Wolves Loss Sums Things Up – Pack

first_imgCity have lost seven of their last eight matches in the Sky Bet Championship, although all but one of those defeats have been by a one-goal margin.The latest came at Molineux, where City led 2-1 at the break, before being overturned to lose 3-2 – despite being denied a last-gasp equaliser with the last kick of the game.“It sums up how things are going for us right now,” a disappointed Pack told Bristol City Player HD.“Things are not going in our favour. I thought it had crossed the line at the end to get us a draw. It looks tight on the match video.“We were 2-1 up away from home and we have to do better to see games out.“We seemed to start the second half well; it’s difficult – do you shut up shop or go out for a third goal to kill it?“It feels like the luck isn’t going our way. I know we can affect that and hopefully it will turn sooner rather than later.”He added: “We’ve done enough in a lot of games recently to earn more points than we’ve actually managed to get on the board.“Ultimately we haven’t taken enough chances and we’ve conceded soft goals.“The boys know how important the Ipswich game is now. We need to assess what we’ve done wrong and put it right.”Tickets for City’s New Year clash with Reading remain on general sale. Buy online now or call 0117 963 0600.last_img read more
