first_imgSolution for car parking in Adelaide’s north east More convenient temporary parking is now available for commuters in the north east as major works get underway on the new $33 million, approximately 450-space, Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride facility.Major construction on the project, which is supporting 150 full time equivalent jobs, has officially begun, delivering on an important election commitment and providing a much-needed upgrade for the local community.Minister for Infrastructure and Transport, Corey Wingard, said the new temporary parking area for commuters accessing O-Bahn services will be open from Tuesday 27 April.“The new temporary carpark is next to the SA Districts Netball Association and will offer free and convenient parking while construction works on the new facility are underway,” Minister Wingard said.“The Marshall Liberal Government’s investment in Park ‘n’ Rides is delivering a better public transport network for South Australians.“The old Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride, located on The Grove Way, contained 177 off-street parking spaces and could no longer meet the demand for north eastern public transport commuters.“The new facility will comprise three levels of parking (ground floor and two upper levels) bringing the total number of car parks to approximately 450.”Member for King, Paula Luethen, said the community has been waiting a long time for the new facility.“This upgrade will address significant concerns about the number of parks available, the security of parked cars and the overflow of parking into nearby streets,” Ms Luethen said.“The new Park ‘n’ Ride will provide a safe and convenient option for local commuters including a ‘kiss and go’ drop-off solution.”The new Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride will include 10 Disability Discrimination Act 1992 compliant car parks, provision for secure bike storage and a safe and convenient ‘kiss ‘n’ go’ area.To be delivered by the Public Transport Projects Alliance (PTP Alliance), the Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride Project is set to improve access for South Australians by providing better connectivity between modes of transport and localities.The new Golden Grove Park ‘n’ Ride is expected to be open in early 2022.The temporary carpark can be accessed via Atlanta Drive at Golden Grove until the project is complete. /Public News.

BT bundles in 4G “at no extra cost” for SMEs

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 04 AUG 2014 BT preps renewed 5G push, pandemic hits earnings BT mulls options for sports TV service BT Business unveiled its first 4G mobile plans for UK SMEs, and they don’t carry a premium over 3G data allowances. A 5GB deal on 3G, for example, will cost the same with LTE access added into the mix.“Every new BT Business Mobile connection now comes with 4G access and unlimited BT WiFi as standard and at no extra cost,” boasted the UK fixed-line operator, which is looking to make inroads into the mobile market.Making the bundled offer more attractive is the fact that BT has five million WiFi hotspots across the UK.BT’s new 4G service comes courtesy of its MVNO agreement with EE, the largest mobile operator in the UK.“Our new plans give customers the connectivity they need to help them stay productive when out and about, along with the flexibility to choose a plan that suits their way of working,” said BT Business CEO Graham Sutherland.In a series of tweets CCS Insight analyst Paolo Pescatore described the offering as “very competitive”, adding that it “throws down the gauntlet to [BT’s] rivals.”BT research reveals that 24 per cent of employees now work regularly out of the office.As part of its push into the mobile SME market BT recently launched One Phone, a fixed-mobile service. Employees insert a BT One Phone SIM in their mobile phone to receive all incoming calls on that device regardless of whether they were made to the landline, extension or mobile number.BT also has plans to launch 4G services using its own spectrum.

EDITORIAL — For graduates, wise counsel

first_img Vernon passed along this message, too: “If you work really hard, people will help you. People will invest in you.”Port Arthur and environs is a generous community with generous people, many of them willing to lend advice and offer their resources to help hard-working people. If you work hard, someone will notice you.This message, too, emerged from Vernon’s presentation: Much of the education he received came locally, in short-term training programs, at two-year schools, at Lamar University.“Opportunity came,” he said.When it did, he was ready. “Night of Stars” honorees got more than scholarships and a good meal this week.The Port Arthur top-10 ranked high school seniors, whose earned academic successes were celebrated by the Port Arthur Education Foundation, got an extra helping of life advice from a young man who has earned a handful of academic degrees while paying “real world tuition” since graduating Port Arthur Memorial High School.Fred Vernon, the 2018 Entrepreneur of the Year in Port Arthur, has lived several lifetimes in the last decade, earning welding credentials and qualifying to drive big rigs. He’s also earned a two-year degree, a bachelor’s and two master’s degrees in building a transportation company that is doing some $6 million in annual business. Such education, Vernon said, can be formal or informal. It can come in a classroom or it can be gathered by way of seeking advice. It can be bolstered by returning to principles your parents instilled in you and by fostering one’s religious faith.“God sustained me,” said Vernon, who in his 20s met with both soaring professional achievements and with business failure.“I persisted,” he said.Those are lessons that these Port Arthur academic “Stars” and their classmates need to embrace. Like Vernon, they may encounter unexpected challenges. They may need to take academic and career detours. They may find that one dream may shrink while a better professional path presents itself. They may fail. But through it all, they must persist.center_img Vernon told the seniors that, at their age, he learned his parents’ home was facing mortgage foreclosure. That message was delivered by a notice on the family home’s door, which he found after school.That affected his college decisions. But by moxie and hard work, he used short-term training and late-night studies to earn money for college — he was, at turns, a welder at a plant and a prison guard, among other jobs — and helped his family weather their economic hardships.He also took the wise counsel of professors and mentors who encouraged him to keep learning and to pursue his professional passions. “Education is the fuel to your future,” he told the “Stars,” who all revealed their own college plans for next year.last_img read more

The State of Phishing [Infographic]

first_imgThe email message from your financial institution looks valid, warning you about a security issue on your account, but how can you be sure it’s not a phishing attack?Phishing is an attempt to trick users into providing personal information by using email messages, websites, or phone calls. In the second half of 2013, over 115,000 unique phishing attacks occurred worldwide, a 60 percent increase over the first half of 2013. This infographic from GovDefenders and DLT Solutions describes the types of phishing attacks, why they still work, and what you can do protect yourself and your organization against phishing. While the infographic focuses on government employees and agencies, the information and tips apply to everyone on the Internet.Check out the key takeaways.Source: The State of PhishingKey TakeawaysEvery day 156 million phishing emails are sent, 15.6 million make it through spam filters, 800,000 click on the phishing links, 80,000 people provide their information, and 8,000 are opened by the recipientAlmost 40 percent of Canada’s Justice Department clicked a phishing link in their emailExamples of phishing include: link manipulation: a link is manipulated to take the user to a hacker’s website; filter evasion: images are used to get past spam filters, website forgery: opening a fraudulent link shows a legitimate address bar, and phone phishing: automated calls from a bank or financial institution asking for account numbers or PIN numbers, with legitimate-looking caller ID. Army Thrift Savings Plan Phishing Test targeting U.S. Army employees showed phishing works. It took three weeks to track down the sender of the security test.
