Daseke restructures management

first_imgDaseke’s “operational and cost improvement plan” includes integrating the company’s operations; implementing business improvement plans; and restructuring its corporate management.The latter, according to Daseke, has eliminated several positions within its corporate office, resulting in substantial corporate cost reduction. As a result, R. Scott Wheeler has resigned from his position as president and member of the board of directors as of September 4, 2019.The presidential duties will be assumed by Chris Easter, the company’s interim ceo and coo, as well as other members of the management team.The company’s chief financial officer (cfo), Bharat Mahajan, will also be leaving Daseke. David Bizzaro from Bridgepoint Consulting will assume the role of interim cfo.Daseke will conduct a search for a replacement cfo once it has appointed a permanent ceo.www.daseke.comlast_img read more

Government push for victim support

first_imgAn online tracking service for victims of crime will help make the criminal justice system easier to navigate, the Ministry of Justice said today.TrackMyCrime will keep victims updated on the progress of their case and allow them to submit details about stolen or damaged property. Officers and victims will also be able to securely exchange messages any time of the day.The MoJ acquired the service, which was developed by Avon and Somerset Constabulary, last year.Victims in Avon and Somerset, Kent and South Yorkshire are already using the service. Further police forces including Humberside, Lancashire and Lincolnshire plan to go live this year.Bill Waddington, chair of the Criminal Law Solicitors’ Association, said the MoJ was desperately adding sticking plasters to the biggest cracks within the criminal justice system which, he said, the ministry knew was on the verge of collapse.‘Obviously a victim wants to know about the progress of his or her case,’ Waddington said. ‘Frankly there is little or no difference to a victim whether they are being told by letter that their case is delayed because of lack of court time, or because there have been disclosure delays by the CPS, or whether they are being told by some online tracking system.‘The bottom line in this example is that the case is delayed. The proposals just do not address the issues.’The latest government initiative comes the day after home secretary Theresa May (pictured) announced plans for victims to report non-emergency crimes online.The Home Office will be working with Surrey and Sussex police forces to develop a prototype for people to report non-emergency crime that could eventually be made available across the country.It is estimated that online crime reporting could save up to £3.7m and 180,000 officer hours per year if it is adopted by all police forces.The government’s latest efforts come days after a report by the Victims’ Commissioner said victims were being let down by criminal justice agencies.The issue is likely to be a key justice battleground in the run-up to the general election, with Labour having pledged to create a victims’ law to restore confidence in the system and help victims who are required to give evidence in court.last_img read more

Manchester may get first Network Management Centre

first_imgINTRO: The Railtrack board will shortly receive the business case for concentrating operational control of Britain’s 16600 route-km in about nine Network Management Centres. Richard Hope asked Andrew McNaughton to explain the strategyCSX TRANSPORTATION was the first major railway to exploit the almost limitless capacity of modern communications technology by bringing all aspects of train control into a single operations room. The Dufford Centre at Jacksonville went live in April 1988, and today controls some 1400 daily train movements on 29000route-km.Union Pacific was not far behind, opening its Harriman Dispatching Centre at Omaha in June 1989. Subsequent mergers, notably with Southern Pacific in 1996, have expanded UP’s network to 58000 km carrying some 2000 daily trains.Burlington Northern had its Fort Worth control centre up and running by 1995, just as the merger with Santa Fe came along. Fort Worth is currently the biggest rail operations room in the US with around 100 workstations, but CSXT is looking to upgrade or replace Dufford as soon as the division of Conrail routes with Norfolk Southern is confirmed.Impressive as these US control centres are in geographical reach, the dense national networks of Europe are far busier in terms of train movements. In Britain, for example, 25000 trains are scheduled daily on 16600route-km compared to around 2000 for each of the big five US freight railroads.Although many British passenger trains complete a one-way trip in under an hour, whereas US freights take many hours and even days from origin to destination, it is the frequency of interaction of trains at junctions and interlockings which determines the flow of data to be handled at the control centre.Moreover, away from the big cities CTC often does not extend through terminal areas, such as UP’s yards in El Paso where through trains simply slow down and drive on-sight over hand-thrown switches innocent of any interlocking. In Europe, virtually all running lines are signalled, vastly increasing the complexity of software needed.Both DBAG in Germany and Railtrack in Britain have announced plans to bring train control over the whole of their respective networks into fewer than 10 regional centres, although neither has taken the final decision to go ahead. The ultimate objective is to eliminate all existing signalboxes and manned level crossings, though this will take many years and is obviously dependent upon the replacement of manually worked points, signals and crossings on secondary routes.First approval later this yearAndrew McNaughton, Railtrack’s Engineering & Operations Development Director, is charged with preparing the business case for building the first of about nine Network Management Centres covering the 16600route-km national network. He expects to place this before the Railtrack board in midsummer. If it is accepted, construction of the first pilot NMC should be authorised by September; this is likely to be at Ashburys in Manchester.Though by no means the only factor, the order in which NMCs are built and equipped will be governed primarily by the need for resignalling. The North West is favoured for the pilot NMC because the Manchester South area will need a new command system anyway by the time that the first release of software will be available. Immediate resignalling mainly affects lines out of Manchester’s Piccadilly and Victoria stations, but the North West Zone extends from Crewe to Carlisle and Holyhead.McNaughton points out that ’the alternatives to creating an NMC are to install obsolete systems such as panel processing or early software-based Integrated Electronic Control Centres, or to accept for each scheme whatever is offered and end up with a hotch-potch of systems. So the more we resignal, the greater the need for an NMC in that zone.’The position at the end of May was that four groups had submitted bids to develop the software and hardware needed for the first stage of the North West NMC, and indicative bids for the remainder. A contract will be awarded when the Railtrack board accepts the business case for going ahead with NMCs as a network-wide strategy.Whilst Railtrack Chief Executive Gerald Corbett is concerned that the ’headline prices’ are too high (below left), the NMC strategy will be implemented over two decades or more, and the suppliers have had to price their future risk. McNaughton feels the indicative bids have given Railtrack a clearer understanding of the costs and difficulties of the various elements. The NMC project team ’can now see the way to an initial system and future upgrades’ within the overall business case, although there will inevitably be ’plenty of hard negotiation ahead of us to get there.’Year of preparationThe team has spent the last year trying to define what operational processes should be in 5 to 10 years time. This has been matched not only against what the technology will be capable of, but also what the staff will be capable of doing. NMCs are seen as an operational rather than technical development – ’fundamentally, it is about how we manage the network.’State of the art in Railtrack’s current resignalling projects – driven primarily by the need to replace relay interlockings which are becoming unreliable or potentially unsafe because of wiring insulation failure – is the solid-state interlocking commanded from an IECC. These were developed in the early and late 1980s repectively.According to McNaughton, ’there will soon be more computing power in the average Game Boy than in our 10-year-old IECCs. As for the older SSIs, they still run at 1MHz. We urgently need to introduce faster computer-based interlockings which are now available’. So ’it is no longer a case of us specifying the technology we want.’ The appropriate question is: ’what around the world is capable of being introduced into our environment?’He sums up the year’s work as ’understanding what we need to do; determining its value; understanding how fast we should move; and finally, developing a philosophy as to how we should do it.’Role of the NMCMcNaughton says his view of the functions that an NMC should perform was strongly influenced by a visit to UP’s Harriman Dispatching Centre in early 1995. ’The Americans see them as a means of delivering services, not just a big signalbox to keep trains apart … that’s why we are calling them management and not signalling centres.’At the core of the NMC is everything to do with operating and monitoring the network. The plan is to encompass all activities within a 12 week time horizon, because that is when the timetable is frozen so far as disruptive engineering work is concerned. Those engaged in longer-term planning may be in an adjacent room, if convenient, but will not be on the operating floor. In some cases it may be appropriate to co-locate the NMC and zonal headquarters buildings.In addition to signalling and train regulation, the NMC will assume control of traction power switching and isolations, passenger information at stations, and engineering work affecting the running of trains. It will also monitor the condition and status of key equipment such as points, or often-bashed bridges, and perhaps some station plant as well.Another important function to be handled at NMCs will be the analysis and attribution of train delays and incidents, both for the performance regime payment process and to decide and action solutions to avoid repetition.While Railtrack’s NMCs will be bigger than the existing US ones in terms of workload and processing power, they will not be much bigger. BNSF’s dispatching centre at Fort Worth has over 100 workstations, whereas the largest Railtrack is looking at is about 50. However, BNSF is an integrated railway whereas Railtrack is only responsible for infrastructure maintenance and train control.US control centres also handle locomotive and crew rostering, and issue instructions for the delivery and collection of wagons from industrial sidings. Britain’s 30-odd train operating companies will be able to locate staff in the NMCs if they wish, but English Welsh & Scottish Railway, the principal freight operator, is already building its own national control centre at Doncaster to manage its business.To establish the practical limits on the size of an NMC, Railtrack undertook a study of the main networks and hubs, and their interaction. This suggested that nine was a logical number, reflecting the practicality of previous management structures for the British network. The favoured locations for six of the NMCs fall one each in six of Railtrack’s seven zones – which may lead to some adjustment of boundaries in due course. For the Southern Zone, which covers the complex 750 V third-rail commuter network south of London, the plan is to build three NMCs on a ’common campus’. While this is essentially dictated by the volume of data, the risk to performance of a major failure suggests that it would be unacceptable to run the whole third-rail network from one centre.Flexible staffingAnother lesson learned from the Americans is the need to migrate people on and off the operating floor continuously as the workload varies – a good reason for locating all of the production function in the NMC and not leaving part at zonal headquarters. McNaughton cites the Long Island Rail Road’s ’low-tech but very effective control centre where, when it snows heavily, the whole finance team stops paying bills and assists with recording train performance, freeing the specialist staff to concentrate on running the service.’ In the last analysis, though, ’the location of an NMC will be determined by the need to keep our skilled and competent people.’’We want a system where, when there is a major problem, an individual workstation, which might have been supervising 100 km of railway, can zoom in to deal with a particular junction, while other operators reconfigure their control areas to help out. We estimate that we can reduce total delays by 25% to 30% with this flexibility and the faster communication and decision making from having everyone together.’Asked how far multi-skilling is likely to go, allowing operators to move from one function to another as workload dictates, McNaughton is more cautious. ’It is far too early to say – we will have to see whether it is sensible for train operators to work in all areas. We want an orchestra, not a collective of buskers.’The level crossing problemOne particular difficulty which Railtrack faces is level crossings. At March 31 1997 there were still 581 manned crossings on the network with hinged gates or lifting barriers, and a further 321 supervised remotely by CCTV. Every such crossing must be inspected visually once the gates or barriers have closed, before protecting signals are cleared, to ensure that no road vehicle is trapped.CCTV crossings create a major stream of work. If staff have to be retained solely to operate level crossings, as happened when the East Coast main line was resignalled because 200 km/h operation precludes the use of automatic crossings under current rules, the financial benefits of controlling large areas from one location can be undermined.To get around this problem, Railtrack is starting some fundamental research to see whether there are cost-effective ways of achieving even greater safety without viewing the crossing manually. Programs that scan video pictures to detect the presence of a vehicle are a possibility; ultrasonic detectors show promising results in Japan (RG 6.98 p423).Another reason why automatic crossings are not acceptable in specific locations is excessive warning time before a slow train arrives. Speed measurement to permit constant warning time could resolve this difficulty.Control migration strategyPutting up a building containing an operating floor big enough to supervise a large route network is easy. Developing the software and installing the hardware will take much longer, and the cost is substantial. More complicated is the transfer of control from up to 30 power signalboxes and two or three electrical control centres.McNaughton sees the key question about migrating control as the ’rich heritage of technologies and conditions’ to be found around the network. The suppliers’ indicative bids showed relatively high cost for developing interfaces with older relay-based interlockings, where the diversity of equipment precludes a standard ’plug-and-play’ interface. This is likely to have a significant impact on the business case for migration from existing signalboxes.Asked when the last power signalbox will close down, McNaughton says some ’may migrate fairly quickly, certainly by 2005, whereas those in good condition may live on well beyond 2010. There are many factors including synergy of whole route control which we are still analysing.’Oddly enough, and assuming all goes according to plan, he believes ’it is likely to be the remaining mechanical signalboxes which survive longest, though many may disappear through local schemes that offer adequate return on the investment.’ And closure of the very last signalbox on Railtrack’s network? ’Not in my lifetime.’The basic rule governing the pace at which NMCs will be set up and expanded is that each step ’has to demonstrate best value.’ This means that the system upon which NMCs rest has to be inherently flexible, and ’must be capable of several generations of upgrading as the network and business environment develop.’NMCs must not be technology driven, though. ’They must be business driven through operational need, with people who will work in them at the heart of the process, not add-ons. So we will do it at a pace that makes business sense – and on the least busy 10% of the network, NMCs will have virtually no impact at all.’ Above all, McNaughton emphasises, ’NMCs are about integrating all the service delivery functions. There would be no value in simply building ever-larger signalboxes.’ oCAPTION: As Railtrack’s Engineering & Operations Development Director, Andrew McNaughton CEng MICE is responsible for integrating command and control developments including signalling and the DART digital train radio projectCAPTION: Computer technology has advanced so far and so fast that the major problem for Railtrack has been deciding exactly what the scope of a Network Management Centre should bePhoto: AEA TechnologyCAPTION: Workstations offer the flexibility to be configured to monitor almost any aspect of railway operationPhoto: AEA TechnologyBids higher than expectedFour firm bids have been received for equipping the first Network Management Centre in Manchester, along with indicative bids for completing the programme.

DeAndre Liggins Embodies Cleveland’s Blue-Collar Spirit

first_imgThat timeline just about says it all.Perhaps the Mo Williams contract situation, as much as it hindered the Cavs from making significant moves for a backup point guard, helped create a spot for a guy in a situation like Liggins.Perhaps drafting the raw, defensively flawed Kay Felder, also helped Liggins earn a spot.But the bottom line is he worked for it from the start of training camp and head coach Tyronn Lue appreciates his grind-it-out mentality.While the Cavs have four or five guys capable of going for 15-20 points on any given night, aside from Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith, the backcourt left much to be desired on defense.The early season ankle injury to Smith opened the door for Liggins to play and he made the most of his opportunity, which is becoming the theme of his first three months in Cleveland.When the Cavs played the Knicks, Liggins told his teammates and coaches “he wanted” to guard Carmelo Anthony.To which, Lue joked, “what is wrong with you?”When Felder was sent to Canton for the first time of his NBA career, Liggins showed up at the game to support his teammate and friend.These are just a few examples of the type of blue-collar spirit with which Liggins attacks life and the game of basketball.He is humble from playing in the D-League, grateful for the opportunity with the Cavs, knows his role on a star-studded team, and is willing to do whatever it takes for the team to be its best.All of these qualities make Liggins a guy who not only is a valuable asset to the Cavaliers, but someone who Clevelanders can relate to and get behind.He’s not the answer to handle the ball for 15 minutes a game at point guard.He can’t hit three’s like Delly was able to in 2015-16 (but then again, neither could Delly for his first two seasons).While Liggins has flaws on offense, he is suited perfectly both mentally and from a matchup standpoint down the road to play valuable minutes against contending teams.One of the most underrated aspects of the Cavaliers in 2015-16 was the contribution of role players, like Tristan Thompson, Richard Jefferson, and Channing Frye.Those players are no longer under the radar, but based on early evidence from Liggins, he may be the next player to join guys like Shumpert, Smith, and those previously mentioned role players on the list of David Griffin’s pieces to the puzzle, who fit perfectly in the bigger picture.However, Coach Lue might deserve a bigger share of the credit on this one for believing in him and throwing him into the fire when the time was right. 2011–2012Orlando Magic Everyone loves an underdog story and DeAndre Liggins personifies that on the roster of the NBA’s defending champions.When Matthew Dellavedova received a $40 mil. offer to sign with the Milwaukee Bucks, the Cavs lost a key player, who brought grit, tenacity, and worked his way up from being an undrafted kid out of Australia and Saint Mary’s to making a Summer League roster and eventually reaching the NBA.Liggins’ story is different, but there are some similar qualities – most notably: work ethic.Liggins came off the bench his first two years of college, playing on a star-studded Kentucky roster with the likes of John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins, and Eric Bledsoe.Perhaps playing with those stars prepared him for a role he would end up in more than five years later.He started his junior season and entered the 2011 NBA Draft, and was selected 53rd overall by the Orlando Magic.From there, it was an up and down ride, with a few seasons in the D-League and Europe, but with persistence, he got his shot back in the NBA this September. 2015Eisbären Bremerhaven 2013–2014Sioux Falls Skyforce 2012–2013Oklahoma City Thunder Matt Medley Career highlights and awards 2012–2013→Tulsa 66ers Related Topics 2014Miami Heat 2014→Sioux Falls Skyforce 2016–presentCleveland Cavaliers NBA D-League champion (2016)2× NBA D-League Defensive Player of the Year (2014, 2016)2× All-NBA D-League Second Team (2014, 2016)2× NBA D-League All-Defensive First Team (2014, 2016)2× NBA D-League All-Star (2014, 2016) 2014–2015Krasny Oktyabr 2015–2016Sioux Falls Skyforce Matt Medley is co-editor at NEO Sports Insiders, covers the Cleveland Cavaliers, Cleveland Indians and high school sports in Northeast Ohio.Follow @MedleyHoops on Twitter for live updates from games.last_img read more

He also has an insane passion for professional wrestling, so catch his opinions on the world of professional wrestling. John Dorsey is not messing around with his goal to fix the Cleveland Browns. The former Kansas City Chiefs general manager has already made an impact on his peers with his demeanor and very aggressive attitude. Now he’s beginning to make some front office moves to help the team move in the right direction.That first of what will be many moves happened on Tuesday when Dorsey convinced Alonzo Smith to agree to a Vice President of Personnel role with the Browns. Highsmith has a decorated background in scouting and evaluating talent.Getting Alonzo Highsmith to go with John Dorsey is the best thing for the Browns. Two terrific personnel men who were together with the Packers. I’ve known Highsmith since 1987, and he’s an outstanding personnel man.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) January 2, 2018After six years as a running back in the NFL, Highsmith’s biggest achievement post-playing days was joining the Green Bay Packers in 1999 and working his way up from a scout to the senior personnel executive. He’s completed nineteen seasons as a talent evaluator and has worked with John Dorsey in Green Bay from the years 2000-2012.Highsmith could be the right-hand man to Dorsey and overlook Andrew Berry, as he has been valued highly across the NFL by Ron Wolf and Ted Thompson, Green Bay’s current senior advisor to football operations. With Dorsey in charge, more positive signings and acquisitions could be in store.center_img Related TopicsAlonzo HighsmithJohn Dorseylast_img read more

Northeastern beats NC-Wilmington 78-71 to reach CAA final
