Drone Misterius Ganggu Penerbangan di Bandara Changi Singapura,Cepat Temukan dan Cegah Pencurian Bagasi, Universitas di India Hadirkan Solusi…

first_imgBahkan CAAS mengatakan ada tujuh penerbangan lainnya telah dialihkan. Tak hanya itu pengalihan kedatangan pesawat juga dikarenakan cuaca buruk yang menjadi penyebab gangguannya. Karena masalah ini, pihak bandara mau tak mau harus mengatur dengan hati-hati jangka waktu singkat bagi kedatangan dan keberangkatan sebagai tindakan pencegahan.Pada minggu lalu satu landasan pacu di Bandara Changi harus ditangguhkan dan penerbangan harus ditunda setelah drone muncul. Penerbangan kedatangan pun dialihkan ke Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.“Anggota masyarakat diingatkan bahwa pihak berwenang mengambil pandangan serius terhadap operasi pesawat tak berawak yang keliru yang dapat menimbulkan ancaman terhadap penerbangan atau membahayakan keselamatan pribadi orang lain,” ujar CAAS dalam sebuah pernyataan.CAAS mengatakan penyelidikan sedang berlangsung dan pelanggar bisa dikenakan denda hingga S$20 ribu (US$14.780) atau 12 bulan penjara. Bandara di seluruh dunia sedang menghadapi masalah keamanan yang semakin meningkat karena peningkatan kehadiran drone.Baca juga: Di Inggris Drone Dilarang Terbang dalam Radius 5 Km dari Bandara, Di Indonesia Dilarang Lebihi Ketinggian 150 MeterPada bulan Desember 2018, penampakan drone menyebabkan sekitar 36 jam kekacauan perjalanan di Bandara Gatwick London, yang menyebabkan pembatalan atau pengalihan sekitar seribu penerbangan dengan perkiraan biaya lebih dari £50 juta.

Middle school football: (updated) Haughton, Cope clinch shares of district titles

first_imgCoach Ray Smith praised the play of Jeremiah Fleming on defense and special teams. He made his first tackle of the season. Cody Salas had an interception and Harley Ingram had a sack. After Whit Van Hoy recovered a fumble forced by Corey Dunson, Collum competed a 20-yard pass to Justin Slaid. That set up a 25-yard touchdown pass from Collum to Austin. The Tigers then got a safety on Luke Campbell’s tackle in the end zone. “I’m really proud of this year’s eighth-grade team,” Walker said. “We lost our starting quarterback in the jamboree and then lost our first game but they persevered, continued to get better, and went 6-0 to finish the season.” Haughton coach Darin Walker praised the play of the defense. Jakendrick Delaney and Jaylen Carey had interceptions. Turner Hubbard scored two conversions and Hudson Brignac had one. Landon Sandifer scored Benton’s final touchdown on a 10-yard run, the most popular play of the game. Jeremiah Boudreaux gained 40 yards on five carries and scored a touchdown. “He’s just an all-around great kid,” Smith said. “It was a special moment for him.” In the other eighth-grade game, Benton defeated Rusheon at Benton. In the other seventh-grade game, Haughton got past Greenacres 38-28. Both of King’s came on sneaks. A 36-yard pass to the 1 set up his first TD. Markell Hampton had 52 yards rushing on four carries. He scored two touchdowns and two conversions. Jalen Lewis suffered a broken leg in the jamboree. But he supported his teammates on the sideline on crutches. Colton Lasiter and Caden Lee had interceptions. Brayden Jackson forced a fumble recovered by Conner Gibbs. Ty Parker and Cody Wilhite were also among the defensive standouts. “We want to thank the Rusheon Middle School football team and coaching staff for their cooperation and sportsmanship,” Benton coach Jared Stowell said. “They were super awesome and a class act.” Haughton finished 6-1 overall and 4-1 in district. Cope (5-1, 3-1), which defeated Elm Grove 48-0 Tuesday, can earn a share of the title with a victory over Greenacres on Oct. 29. Hampton also had an impact on defense, making five tackles and returning an interception 59 yards for a touchdown. Miles’ TDs were both 5-yard runs. Sincere Walker had four tackles, one sack and another tackle for a 7-yard loss. Chase Tolbert, Jason Zahm and Ahmad Richardson all had sacks. Brandon Sanders forced a fumble and recovered one. He also had three solo tackles and two assists. Conner McConathy passed for one conversion and ran for one. At Benton, Jayden McNeill scored the Tigers’ first touchdown in the seventh-grade victory on an 8-yard run. Lannon Collum hit Cole Austin for the conversion. Champ Endris returned an interception 34 yards. He also had two solo tackles and two assists. At Airline, Brayden Stovall, Bryson Hinkie and Amarion Lars all scored touchdowns in Haughton’s eighth-grade victory. Carter Ebarb kicked two extra points. After Brody Brunyx recovered a fumble at the Rusheon 1, Tirey Robinson scored. Davontay Moss and Christian Turner scored all of the Bucs’ touchdowns in the seventh-grade victory. The Cougars (6-0, 4-0) lead Benton (5-1, 4-1) by one game with one to play. Benton defeated Rusheon in its final game. Quarterback Jeff King and Mike Miles scored two touchdowns each for the victorious eighth-grade Tigers. The Haughton Bucs clinched a share of the Bossier Parish middle school eighth-grade district championship with a 34-8 victory over the Greenacres Mustangs on Tuesday night at M.D. Ray Field at Airline Stadium. At Preston Crownover, Trey Jackson rushed for 284 yards on just nine carries and scored on runs of 50, 20 and 10 yards to lead Cope to the eighth-grade victory. He also had a 75-yard run.

R165m fund to develop Transnet’s small suppliers

first_img24 February 2014 State company Transnet has partnered with the Small Enterprise Finance Agency (Sefa) and resources giant Anglo-American to launch a R165-million fund to help small black-owned companies become the rail utility’s suppliers. Anglo-American’s enterprise development arm, Zimele, Transnet and Sefa, a subsidiary of the state-owned Industrial Development Corporation (IDC), will each contribute R55-million to the newly established Godisa Supplier Development Fund. “The aim of the fund is to promote growth and sustainability amongst existing and potential black-owned suppliers of Transnet in the rail engineering and freight services,” Transnet Group CEO Brian Molefe said in a joint statement issued after the launch of the fund in Pretoria on Friday. “It is also our intention to foster enterprise development in such a way that recipients will be able to create new jobs in the communities in which they operate,” Molefe added. Godisa will offer offer loans and capital advances, as well as free business and technical support, to qualifying beneficiaries. R150-million of the total fund will be used for investment financing over a 10-year period, with the remaining R15-million going on support services. Public Enterprises Minister Malusi Gigaba, speaking at Friday’s launch, said: “Of the country’s almost five-million small and medium entrepreneurs, 70% don’t survive beyond 18 months due to issues such as a lack of access to funding. “This is something that our economy will not self-correct,” Gigaba said, adding that the economy would not recover or achieve social inclusion without partnerships to correct market inefficiencies. He said the fund would help to encourage young black people who had aspirations to be entrepreneurs and suppliers of light and heavy manufactured products to access funding. “We need to increase our appetite for risk, take a hand-holding approach and trust black people as capable entrepreneurs so that we don’t build the economy on the back of fronting entrepreneurs with no experience or skills.” According to the three partners, all applications for funding will need to take the form of an investment proposal accompanied by a formal business plan. Potential recipients will then have present their business case to a committee consisting of the Godisa fund manager and representatives from the various contributors. Once a business case is accepted, a due diligence process will be undertaken to ensure that the company is legally and financially compliant. Godisa will help companies to complete the relevant documentation and meet their compliance obligations. “Enterprise development has become a vital source for job creation and poverty alleviation in South Africa,” Zimele chairperson Khanyisile Kweyama, the executive director of Anglo American in South Africa, said at the launch. The fund, she said, would “provide more opportunities where entrepreneurs and small to medium enterprises can grow within Transnet”. Sefa CEO Thakhani Makhuvha said the fund would help to address “the liquidity challenge curently prevalent in supply chains by making funding accessible to black-owned SME suppliers”.
