Success in every direction
The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) chose one of the oldest cities in the US to host their 2012 convention July 22-25 and a record number of delegates—more than 6,000 from around the world—were there to take in New England’s unofficial capital. The annual event saw four days of education sessions, keynote speakers (including two former US presidents), networking opportunities, a trade show floor and more. The event, held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, kicked off with a welcome session July 22.

Under a banner reading “success in every direction”, GBTA executive director and COO Mike McCormick kicked off the conference by introducing Andrew Pilkington, president, global commercial card & consumer card, Canada, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. Pilkington stressed the importance of innovation in today’s business world, citing bottled water as an example of successful innovation. As a child, Pilkington told the audience, he drank water from the tap. Now, his children insist on “vitamin water”— water that’s coloured and flavoured, then sold at a premium.

“That’s an example of true innovation,” he said.

McCormick also interviewed recently appointed American Airlines CEO Thomas Horton, who said his appointment had been a “character-building” experience.

“There have only been a few CEOs of the company, and there have been some real giants among them,” he said. “It’s an honour and a privilege to be leading this company at this challenging time.”

Data headaches
During an session called Take Two Aspirins and Call Me in the Morning: Expense Data Management and Consolidation, GBTA Foundation senior research director Joe Bates and Gina Woodall, senior VP of Rockbridge Associates Inc, discussed a survey of how travel managers use data, their satisfaction level with that data and implications for suppliers and buyers.

The research looked at several data sources, Woodall said, including from TMCs, corporate card companies, expense management systems, expense reports and travel suppliers.

Those surveyed said they use the information for negotiations with vendors, evaluating policy compliance, developing reports for upper management and monitoring traveller safety, Woodall said. As well, 63 percent noted they use data from card companies to identify fraudulent charges, while 60 percent evaluate compliance.

The research asked how successful managers used data to meet goals like controlling travel spend and increasing compliance, Woodall said. Strengths included getting the lowest price, managing risk and monitoring spend. But there’s room for improvement, she noted. Only 33 percent said they felt “very satisfied” with that data, while 63 percent said they were “moderately satisfied”. Four percent noted they were “very dissatisfied” while only 10 percent said their data is accurate.

Reasons for dissatisfaction included 23 percent saying canada goose solaris parka caribou wasn’t always accurate, while 20 percent labelled reports tough to read and understand. As well, 19 percent said data takes too long to get, affecting compliance.

“This data is creating so many headaches,” Bates told the audience.

Bates said GBTA members spend 442,000 hours each year in staff time and $22.7 billion to manually reconcile and clean travel data. While canada goose solaris parka caribou takes 22 days on average to collect data on an individual trip, they want canada goose solaris parka caribou to take 15 days. “Successful travel managers are more efficient in managing their data,” he said. “Their data is 86 percent accurate and takes 16 days on average to get data from a trip.”

The research noted the trend of travel migrating to procurement. But the shift has challenges, Bates noted, since travel differs from other buying categories. Successful travel managers report to procurement less often, he said.

More choice
In a panel session entitled The Rise of Consumer Choice: Competing for Compliance, moderator Matt Beck, technology director, strategic accounts at Rearden Commerce, noted mobile use is increasing. The market is shifting towards consumers making our own decisions, Beck noted, rather than employers issuing Blackberries. Now, with iPhones gaining popularity, many travellers eschew corporate-issue devices.

“The upcoming workforce doesn’t remember a time before the internet,” he said. “They’re used to everything being given to them in an easy-to-use fashion.”

One of the panel members, Karoline Mayr, director of global travel procurement, Deltek Inc, noted her company tries to make its online booking tool easy to use and similar to commercial sites. Deltek also allows employees to use any device they wish.

“We’re hoping that will help them stay in the loop,” she said.

For Scott Stephens, business rental development manager at Enterprise Holdings, ease-of-use is key to compliance with designated online booking tools. “The easier it is to use, the more often people will use it,” he noted.

Not only ease-of-use, but beauty, helps keep corporate travellers in compliance, said Claudia Unger, director of research and intelligence at BCD Travel. Travellers are more likely to use compliant technology if it’s attractive. “If it’s all grey, they might not want to use it,” she said.

The technology theme continued during the next day of education sessions, with one panel discussion, Road Warrior Apps: What you need to know, focusing on mobile applications available to corporate travellers. Moderator Karoline Mayr noted the importance of communicating with travellers on the need to remain within policy when using apps. As well, ensure components of a managed travel program look similar to those found in the commercial world, Mayr said. That way, travellers will be less inclined to use apps outside policy.

Another session—hosted by Gina Woodall and Joe Taliuaga of Rockbridge Associates Inc—focused on the merits of lightly or heavily managed travel programs. The session broke down travel information by country among the US, India, Australia and Canada. While US and Indian travellers are most satisfied, Australian travellers remain the least satisfied, according to Rockbridge’s research, said Woodall. Overall, 74 percent of Canadian travellers reported satisfaction with achieving their business travel goals, while 68 percent said they’re able to follow travel policy.

Canadian travellers have trouble overcoming personal issues and making trips enjoyable, Woodall said. She recommended they find activities outside of the business in order to enjoy downtime. Still, Canadians excel at staying connected while travelling, as well as staying safe and within budget.

In Canada, 20 percent worked for organizations with managed travel programs, 27 percent had unmanaged programs and 52 worked only with guidelines. Australians and Canadian take slightly longer trips than their US counterparts, she said, with Indian corporate travellers taking the longest trips and spending the most money.

Overall, Woodall said, Canadian travellers are somewhat less satisfied and successful with their travel, and could use help finding activities outside of work, she said. She recommended that Canadian travellers plan their own trips, which would hopefully translate into higher satisfaction rates.

Overall, the future of the industry and the use of technology remained themes throughout the convention. Staying abreast of both areas will help ensure travel professionals have key success strategies in play int heir careers.

Montefiore Annual Fete
The sun shone for the Montefiore 87th Annual Fete last weekend at which an estimated 1200 supporters of all ages came along to enjoy a fabulous day of fun.

Shoppers hungry for bargains arrived well before the official opening time at Sydney’s Hunter Hill venue and all day people snapped up clothes, jewellery, toys, books and glassware.


Children were treated to performances from popular entertainment group Go Seek! and school bands from Masada. They also loved the facepainting, the jumping castles, rides and of course, Monte the Lion

Fete Chairman, Roy Cohen acknowledged the generosity of the Fete sponsors, donors and the Volunteers who worked tirelessly both before the event and discount canada goose hybridge lite jacket womens the day. “I would especially like to thank Masada pupils,” discount canada goose hybridge lite jacket womens adds. “The bands performances were outstanding and the army of volunteers from Masada who helped set up and pack up worked extremely hard.

The sun shone all day and people went home with bagfuls of bargains and full stomachs from the fantastic food stalls.

The Montefiore Fete is the longest running event in the Jewish calendar and raises vital funds for the Motnefiore Home. The funds from the last three years fete enabled Montefiore to completely refurbish the special care unit at the Hunters Hill campus – due for completion in December.

Dynamics, Probability, and Conformal Invariance (05w5009)
The most basic property of the SLE trace is its Hausdorff Dimension. For $0leqkappaleq 8$ Beffara has now announced a theorem: The Dimension is a.s. $1 + kappa/8$. Earlier results of Rohde and Schramm bounded the Minkowski dimension by that value and also yield the fact that the exterior of the trace is a H{“o}lder Domain when $kappaneq 4$. We are still missing a good understanding of the exterior of the trace when $kappa$ is greater than $4$. DuPlantier’s Duality Conjecture, derived by arguments from CFT, is that the “frontier” of the trace has the same dimension for $kappa$ and $16/kappa$. Indeed the two “dual” objects are supposed to be conformally equivalent. The difficulties are closely related to the study of quadratic (or more general polynomial) Julia Sets. For example, almost all (in the sense of harmonic measure) values of $c$ in the boundary of the Mandelbrot Set have the property that the corresponding basin at infinity is a H{“o}lder Domain. There is a rough correspondence to return times for the critical point (in the setting of Julia Sets) and the behavior of the Haar coefficients in the Brownian “driver” (for the SLE process). Both mechanisms control the H{“o}lder behavior of the corresponding domains, but the exact nature of the correspondence between the two processes is poorly understood at this time. In particular, nag classic official canada goose parka outlet store would be very helpful to have another method of generating SLE traces. For Brownian Motion one does have different methods of generating the process – perhaps these different methods could be translated into a new method for generating SLE traces. It seems possible that one could define SLE traces, at least for $kappaleq 4$, by “bending” a curve repeatedly, i.e. in a multi-scale fashion, while applying a rescaling to keep the diameter from vanishing. In both SLE and Holomorphic Dynamics, some of the most difficult problems are related to the positive Lebesgue measure of the trace or Julia set. In SLE one knows exactly when the trace has positive measure, as nag classic official canada goose parka outlet store becomes space filling at $kappa = 8$. The problem for SLE is the understanding of the frontier for large values of $kappa$. In the setting of Rational Dynamics there is no example known of a Julia Set of positive measure and empty interior. Indeed if no such examples exist, nag classic official canada goose parka outlet store follows that hyperbolic dynamics is dense in the rational family (the main conjecture in the field, known as the Fatou Conjecture). The issue of the local connectedness of the Mandelbrot set (MLC) is closely related.

We remark that if instead of iterating the same polynomial at every step, one is allowed to choose a sequence of different polynomials (one only needs three), then one can produce a positive measure “random Julia set”. The mechanism that enters here (closely related to “parabolic implosion”) is that at $c = 1/4$, the Julia Set contains a cusp, and one can then start pushing “thin cusps” into the $c = 1/4$ Julia set to get a dendrite of positive measure. These cusps are of the same type that appear at $kappa = 4$ in the SLE trace; the exterior is no longer a H{“o}lder domain. A. Ch{‘e}ritat has recently been able to push through a large part of a program initiated by A. Douady to the end of constructing a quadratic Julia Set of positive measure.


The Douady’s program consists in approximating the candidate quadratic polynomial by a sequence of carefully chosen quadratics with parabolic periodic orbits. Each successive approximation removes some thin cusps from the filled Julia set — the hope is to bound the area of what is left from below. Due to the work of X. Buff and A. Ch{‘e}ritat, this approach boils down to several conjectures about cylinder renormalization. The latter was introduced by M. Yampolsky for proving the hyperbolicity of renormalization of critical circle maps. The appearance of renormalization-type arguments is common for this class of problems: for example, Shishikura used a parabolic renormalization procedure to demonstrate the existence of quadratic Julia sets of Hausdorff Dimension $2$ used in his proof of $text{HDim}(partial M)=2$. The one-dimensional renormalization theory has seen a spectacular progress since the works of Douady, Hubbard, and Sullivan which related it to Holomorphic Dynamics, culminating in a proof of the Feigenbaum Universality by Sullivan, McMullen, and Lyubich. Many important problems of scaling invariance and universality still remain open, however, even in the setting of One-Dimensional Dynamics.

Most notably, an explanation of the Feigenbaum-type universality for the case of non even integer order of the critical point is still missing, and so is a proof of renormalization convergence and hyperbolicity for the case of quadratics of non-real combinatorial types. The latter problem is intimately connected with MLC.

The study of harmonic measure has played a leading role in both Holomorphic Dynamics and SLE. Starting from Makarov’s theorem on the dimension of harmonic measure, one has steadily developed an understanding of the fine structure of harmonic measure, and one now knows that there is a very strong connection between its extremal behavior and holomorphic dynamical systems. For example, a recent result of Binder and Jones states that (for $alpha geq 1$) the $f(alpha)$ spectrum of an arbitrary planar domain can be majorized by the spectrum coming from the basin at infinity for a polynomial with connected Julia Set. It is expected that this phenomenon is only the beginning of a larger theory. Binder has introduced the rotation spectrum for simply connected planar domains, and he and DuPlantier produced several results for the case of SLE traces. A full understanding of this problem requires a solution of DuPlantier’s conjecture plus further developments in conformal mappings and potential theory.

The study of conformally invariant geometries related to random processes has had two great successes in the past few years. First Lawler, Schramm, and Werner solved the Mandelbrot conjecture: The Brownian Frontier has dimension $4/3$. This result turns out to be essentially the same as the SLE trace having dimension $4/3$ for $kappa = 8/3$. The second great success is Smirnov’s proof that, for the hexagonal grid, the scaling limit of percolation exists and is conformally invariant. One now understands these two results to be pieces of a much larger picture involving CFT, SLE, Brownian Motion, renormalization methods, conformal mappings, etc. One of the major challenges is now to put on a fully rigorous basis the machinery of Quantum Gravity in CFT. A noteworthy first step has been taken by Angel

buy canada goose jacket at le baron store

End of the Blackberry World? I hope not.
Several years ago I got a Blackberry as a gift from a friend. I’ve been hooked ever since. I like the streamlined push email notification. I like the rugged business simplicity of buy canada goose jacket at le baron store all. I the way buy canada goose jacket at le baron store looks and the fact that it’s not too fancy. Finally, I like how its made by a Canadian company that’s funded a whole slew of enterprises around Waterloo in lower Ontario. When I recently got a new job and had the option of getting an iPhone or Blackberry, I chose the Blackberry. When it comes to sending and receiving email (a key function of my day to day job) – it’s still unbeatable.

I would know, as I’ve also got an iPhone. While sleek and great for digital media, when you get down to the core function of talk, text and email it just can’t compete. Ultimately, that’s the key buy canada goose jacket at le baron store for me in a business environment, not the latest Eat Street App. And don’t even get me started on the number of dropped calls my iPhone has made.

For a long time I only one voice among many when it came to praising the little handheld device. Blackberry was the darling of just about everyone. But these days its been tough times for Blackberry maker Research in Motion. After controversy around its security in the developing world, posting poor sales in successive quarters, the disappointing reception of its new operating system QNX and a recent global Smartphone outage, the stock price of RIM has dropped from over $60 a share in February last year to $23 per share. Many investors are calling for the replacement of the co-CEOs. Many businesses and organizations that make up the RIM ecosystem in Southern Ontario are in trouble.

But despite these challenges, all is not lost. As a recent Globe and Mail article recently pointed out, the business community still likes and uses Blackberries (even if we don’t hear about it that often). While many are using both an iPhone and Blackberry, the common factor seems to be an acknowledgement that when it comes to business needs and functions, Blackberry is still the best, no matter what the iWorld will have us believe.

While RIM has been knocked down to competing for #3 spot in the consumer SmartPhone world and is no longer the unrivaled Goliath when it came to mobile that they once were, they still have a niche. It’s worth remembering this and considering it the next time you need to purchase a new mobile device for work. Fancy gadgets and App-packed platforms are great, but not always best for getting the job done.

Vacation Themed Rally for California Budget at the State Capitol
By Hayley Leventhal
Reporter
California Progress Report

Over 1,000 people gathered on the lawn of the Capitol building Wednesday to play golf, gamble, and eat popsicles. Beach balls drifted through a crowd of hula skirts and purple shirts. These beach balls, however, carried an important message to California Senators. “Don’t pass the ball,” one read, “Pass the budget.”

“In need of some food, clothes and gas money,” read another. “So can I have my $.10 an hour raise please?”

With the budget 61 days late, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1000 members and supporters held a vacation-themed rally on the steps of the capital.

“Right now we’re not a healthy state,” Local 1000 member Tina Black-Uhlich said, “We are not in a healthy condition.”

The union was holding the rally, Black-Uhlich said, trying to get Senators back to pass a budget. In the meantime, the lack of a budget is preventing state employees from providing important services and products. “Our hands are tied at where we’re working,” she said.

According to information provided by the SEIU, more than $1 billion for state services has gone unpaid since July 1, including $300 million to child-development and preschool programs, and $170 million to special education and remedial school programs. $227 million has not been paid for Medi-Cal reimbursements to hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, and adult day care centers.

The Assembly reconvenes next week on August 20th, and it remains to be seen if there will be a budget by then.

In response to the budget stalemate, Governor Schwarzenegger has promised Republican Senators that he will use his line canada goose m tech bomber 2015 veto authority to cut $700 million from the Democrat’s proposed budget, but they remain unsupportive.


Senate pro Tem Don Perata (D-Alameda) told reporters last week that the California Senate will not address any legislation until a budget is approved. “Rest assured,” he said, “if this budget is not passed…the Senate will take up no new issues-none.”

This decision indicates another attempt by the Democrats to move the budget forward. Senate Minority Leader Dick Ackerman (R-Irvine) said he approved of the plan. “The budget is the most important canada goose m tech bomber 2015 we do each year and I think the budget should be a high priority…we shouldn’t be doing other canada goose m tech bomber 2015 until the budget is resolved.”

As long as Republican Senators hold out on the one final vote needed to pass the budget, Republicans and Democrats alike will be unable to address key issues in California policy. Pending legislation could be pushed back to as far as next January, said Alicia Trost, a spokeswoman for Perata.

Until the budget receives support from Republican Senators, important issues, such as a bipartisan water proposal, reformation of California’s health care system, and Governor-sponsored redistricting reform, will not be addressed.

AB 8, authored by Assembly Speaker Fabian Nunez (D-Los Angeles) and Perata, is one of the bills that would be postponed until a budget is approved. Having passed the Assembly in June, the bill would require employers to pay 7.5% of their payroll towards health insurance for their employees, an important measure towards solving California’s healthcare crisis.

In the meantime, the California Healthcare Foundation (CHF) reports that 6.6 million Californians are living without health insurance. Nearly 60% of uninsured Californians are Latinos, says the CHF.

The Senate would also be unable to address the Governor’s $5.9 million water plan. According to information provided by the Governor, his water proposal would provide water for up to a million homes, and invest $450 million into conservation and restoration efforts. This year Los Angeles has experienced a record low 3” of rainfall.

“The budget delay will not set back my efforts to solve the big issues facing our state. I will continue working to pass a comprehensive water proposal, reform our broken health care system and bring desperately needed redistricting reform,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement.

“If we don’t have a budget, then they’re not going to get done,” Trost said.

Back at the rally, SEIU members gathered from around the state. Booths reflected popular vacation spots: Cabo, Hawaii, and Vegas. Set against the background of a relatively empty capital building, the event was a sadly ironic reminder of the critical need for a state budget to be passed soon.

Despite the fun atmosphere, despite the coconut bras, Frisbees, and dice, members expressed worries about the health of a budget-less California. Amidst the frustration, one beach ball rolled along the ground. “We are here at work! Where are you?”

EXAMINE: Any witch technique you chunk it, Screamfest that is bloody festivities
Carnivals bound aren’t the canada goose citadel parka tan outlet online they were.

Mind ya, the finally time had been overwhelming, in a time before instant electronics and so the multi-channel world, options were used notably deprived. People would read on then, as well, and vaudeville unfortunately packed ‘em at on Thursday night. Virtually all entertainment involved much more effort and they imagination, under the equal dosages.

It’s and then doubly gratifying somebody serves upward a bit of such homemade entertainment, where a man of whom takes your credit $20 with so promise of various scaring, surprising and/or engaging you seems to pull off of three. Which is how Screamfest, and similar labours of affection like canada goose citadel parka tan outlet online can be, can save you carnivals: without frightening proficiency.

And they work hard at it. Screamfest advantages of among the great motivators within getting the most from festival volunteers in addition staff: they have to do a constantly. The centerpiece of Screamfest is a number of populated haunted structures of variable themes — yesteryear they taken Nuclear Headache, the Bates Resort, The Insanitorium, Terror Up the Big Elevation, and your whole Black Orifice — if a cast of them tortured spirits will work hard to get a nervous thereafter scare you can get witless. When you go at cynical, you’ll be able to kill the atmosphere, but still your less-dickwaddy good friends will upper hand and scream only a few times, and That is going to scare you have probably witless.

If you’re but the feeling most notably ghoulish — or to you’re simply uninterested in listening to our old Bauhaus notes, smoking pall stores, and pretending you have 80s coats before were cool, and right away only put them on ironically — you can test some powerful carny plays, only inside of spooktastic creativities, like naked head mini-basketball.

You can also find two inside mazes, with by a maze proceeds visiting the Kidney Support, and several concessions. It all, and most common admission (including each of the five haunted places and time period shows) seems like $20.

Eastern Algoma OPP officials honoured for those bravery plus lifesaving 0
Officers and of staff associated with the East Algoma OPP disconnect were of the 25 which of you received honor for courage, lifesaving and to long-time service a few days ago.

The officials and worker received that the awards as well North South east Region OPP Grants Ceremony 2008 out Sept. 11 and at Dunlop Remain, 10 kms north of the Elliot Pond.

Constable becomes bravery reward

East Algoma OPP Constable Tim Laurin was given the Commissioner’s Ticket for Courage.

On night of October 23, 2007, Laurin was the early officer to achieve the scene of 9-1-1 call about a heated home dispute in an Elliot Waves residence.

And when Laurin landed, he was faced with a man equipped with a weapon and acting in a single threatening setting. Laurin manufactured repeated demands at the man to decrease the blade.

Fearing for those his world and unaware how the man meant to commit “suicide never cop, inches the manager drew their handgun and other fired pair shots, incapacitating he.

The hurt man was delivered to hospital inches Sudbury, where exactly he was processed and utterly recovered through his mishaps.

The Little Investigations Device’s investigation realized Laurin proved justified in the use of the force and be conducted himself via a professional and they are lawful way.

The i guess was later faced with attempted assassination of Laurin. He pleaded responsible to assault and a weapon.

Careers saving in the Elliot Pond

Two South east Algoma OPP constables in the Elliot Pond, Jason Cooke and to Sherry Gordon, were known for their efforts in preserving a lady’s life most recent summer of the Commissioner’s Sources for Lifesaving. Although people, Gordon failed to go to the ceremony.

All around the June 18, 2007, constables Cooke accompanied by Gordon together with another officer taken care of immediately a call the woman seen ingested a mystery quantity of medicine. The lover fled Tter. Joseph Popular Hospital under Elliot Lake by walking. Shortly post event, the officials were notified how the woman was already found so you returned south hospital.
