Weekly MP Report from Jay Hill

first_imgWastewater Management: to reduce the negative impacts of municipal wastewater effluent or storm-water effluent on human health and the environment, and improve the management of wastewater sludge. Roads: to improve road safety, mobility and sustainability; promote the rehabilitation of bridges, tunnels and other structures; and, support economic and community development. Shortline Railways: to help reduce congestion on highways and serve new freight customers by supporting the construction, rehabilitation and/or upgrading of tracks and structures for safe and efficient operations by shortline railways companies.Tourism: to construct or improve convention centres or exhibition hall-type facilities that increase the number of visitors to the community and the length and quality of their stay.Given that the deadline for applications is September 5th, my staff is already meeting with municipal staff throughout the riding to ensure they are well-prepared to seize this important opportunity, as well as other federal programs and services which can help them to better serve local residents. More information is available at: www.bcbuildingcanadafundcommunities.ca.And while municipalities are marking that date on their calendar, consumers may want to circle September 30th. That’s when the long-awaited National Do Not Call List (DNCL) will be launched. The DNCL is a service that will allow Canadians to reduce the number of unsolicited telemarketing calls they receive.Last December, pursuant to new federal legislation, the CRTC awarded a five-year contract to Bell Canada to operate the National DNCL. Currently, each telemarketer is required to maintain its own “do not call list”, for which you must register separately to reduce or avoid calls. With the DNCL, you will only have to register your Canadian telephone number on one list.The DNCL will be responsible for registering numbers, providing telemarketers with up-do-date versions of the National DNCL, and receiving consumer complaints about telemarketing calls. For more information go to: www.crtc.gc.ca/eng/dncl.htm.These are just two of the many new initiatives by our Conservative Government that will truly make a difference to individual Canadians and entire communities. The $272-million program, including $25-million for flood mitigation projects, will help small communities with mounting infrastructure pressures. I know that our local municipalities have long lists of projects to either rehabilitate aging roads and water and sewer systems or to ensure they can meet the growing needs of their community. Our Conservative Government, in cooperation with the Province of BC, is accepting applications from these smaller communities for the following types of projects:Drinking Water: to improve drinking water treatment and distribution systems and to protect drinking water sources, as well as increasing the number of households with access to safe drinking water.Advertisement MP Report by Jay Hill, M.P.New Federal Programs for Municipalities and Consumers LaunchedThis week brings news of long-anticipated launch dates for one federal program to help our local municipalities and another to help protect the interests of consumers across Canada.- Advertisement -The application period officially began this week for the Building Canada Fund Communities Component here in British Columbia. As part of the largest federal investment in infrastructure since the second world war, the Communities Component is specifically designed for municipalities with populations of less than 100,000 …that’s all the cities, districts, towns and villages in Prince George-Peace River.Advertisementlast_img read more

IBM’s 5 on 5: Holograms Will Come to Life Just Like in Star Wars

first_imgCognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair This is cool stuff. We just hope in six years that we may put our holograms on the dashboards of our flying land cruisers. Related Posts The annual Five on Five gives IBM’s predictions for the next five years. The predictions this year are thought provoking but one really caught our attention.The hologram. As in the “Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope,” kind of hologram.IBM Labs says the hologram will be a part of our lives in the next five years. You will be able to beam 3D images to people who can then talk with you as they walk down the street. It will be as if you are walking with them. 3D cameras will get more sophisticated and eventually small enough to launch holograms with a mobile device.The other four predictions include:The emergence of “citizen scientists” who collect data from sensors in our cars or any physical device that will be added to massive data sets. Batteries that are powered by static energy or even the air we breathe.The heat from data centers may help power cities.Your commute will be personalized. Adaptive traffic systems will intuitively learn behavior. alex williams Tags:#enterprise#Trends 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Nowlast_img read more

The 11 Power 5 College Football Teams That Improved The Most Statistically In 2015

first_imgiowa midseason hype videoTwitter/@hawkeyeFBvideoVirtually every college football team makes changes from season to season. Players graduate, enroll, and transfer out and in, coaches take new jobs and rise through the ranks, and systems change all the time. In college football, you can have a team like TCU, which was a 4-8 club in 2013, find itself on the precipice of the College Football Playoff in 2014. While not every rise or fall is that drastic, the sport does lend itself to steep turnarounds. This year, Larry Fedora, Kirk Ferentz, and Bob Stoops all answered questions about their job statuses with remarkable runs, and all are positioned to go to top bowls, if not compete for national championship.These improvements bare themselves out on the stat sheets as well. When comparing the numbers from 2014 to 2015, it isn’t very shocking which teams have seen the biggest jumps this season.Using scoring offense and defense, we measured which power conference teams improved the most in total point differential from 2014 to 2015. Many of the top ten teams are among those that helped define the 2015 college football season. Next: Florida State >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6 Page 7 Page 8 Page 9 Page 10 Page 11 Page 12last_img read more
