Windhoff designs high performance on-track machines for SBB

first_imgSWITZERLAND: Windhoff Bahn- und Anlagentechnik has announced details of the 35 self-propelled on-track machines which it is to supply to Swiss Federal Railways under the largest single contract which the company has won.Deliveries are scheduled from spring 2017 until 2021, with the first five vehicles to undergo six months of in-service testing to enable any feedback to be incorporated into series production. SBB also has options to place further orders. SBB intends to use the vehicles for scheduled infrastructure maintenance as well as ‘trouble-shooting’ and urgent repairs. Each vehicle will be equipped with a crane and a loading platform which will be partly lowered to just 1 000 mm above rail height. There will be two independent driving positions, suitable for seated or standing operators to enable safe movements when running on the main line and when shunting within a possession.The bidirectional vehicles will have twin diesel engines with automatic start-stop functions, enabling one engine to be shut down to save fuel. Windhoff said it won the order thanks to the ‘innovative’ design of its running gear, which would combine low wear and high tractive effort with ‘extraordinary’ curve negotiating characteristics. The maximum speed will be 100 km/h, even when fully loaded to a total weight of 40 tonnes, with sufficient performance to tackle gradients without loss of speed. ETCS will be the only train control system fitted to the vehicles.last_img read more

Photo/Jason GoormanBut the Clippers managed to kill two late rallies and held on for a 6-5 victory over the Michigan Monarchs on Tuesday at Marsh Field in their 2019 season opener.It was hard to use the team’s performance to venture a guess on how the season might go. The Clippers came out flat offensively, but still managed to score six runs on just three hits.“Overall I thought we defended well, and we are just happy to get a win,” said Clippers manager Walt Gawkowski, whose team will host the Monarchs again on Wednesday in the second game of the three-game series. “It’s never going to be easy in this league.”“I think offensively this team is going to be really good,” the manager added. “We weren’t great tonight, but we are going to be, so that’s the least of my concerns. Obviously sometimes it’s not how many you get, but when you get them and how far they go.”Muskegon trailed 1-0 after allowing a solo home run to the Monarchs’ Gavin Doyle in the second inning.The Clippers finally cracked the scoreboard in the fourth frame on a single by Jimmy Allen, followed by a two-run homer from Brian Martin.“I was facing a college teammate,” said Martin, who plays his college ball at Michigan State. “I figured he was going to throw me a fastball and he threw it.”The Clippers increased their lead to 3-1 in the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly by Rob Zurawski, scoring Ty Olejnik.Muskegon’s Brady Miller delivers the opening pitch to the 2019 season.

They had the bases loaded with two outs before lining out to Clipper first basemen Martin to end the threat.The Monarchs kept pushing in the ninth inning with two outs, scoring on an RBI single by Doyle and on a Muskegon error.They had the tying run at second base and the go-ahead run at first before Mitchell Smith struck out to end the contest.Clippers starting pitcher Brady Miller had a no-decision, tossing four innings while allowing one run on five hits and striking out eight batters.Muskegon’s reliever Dane Ambrustmacher got the win, throwing 3 2/3 innings while allowing two runs on four hits.

#Nextchat: Trust in the Workplace

first_imgWhat are you doing to inspire trust in your workplace, and if you have a problem in this area, what steps can you take to fix it?Please join @WeKnowNext at 3 p.m. ET on Jan. 22 for #Nextchat with special guest Drive Thru HR co-host and Next official blogger Nisha Raghavan (@theHRBuddy).We’ll chat about what you’re doing in your organizations to inspire trust and thwart the bad workplace and leadership habits that are killing it.Q1. Why are trust levels at such historic lows in our workplaces? What is causing the downward spiral?Q2. What types of negative recruiting experiences can be initial red flags for new employees?Q3. What types of negative onboarding experiences create trust concerns in new employees?Q4. What poor leadership/management behaviors absolutely kill trust in the workplace?Q5. Why do some highly political workplace cultures thrive? Does competition trump trust in some professions/industries?Q6. How can organizations encourage greater trust among departments and teams?Q7. What kind of training does your organization provide that reinforces character, integrity and trust-building skills?Q8. How can a culture that is damaged by trust issues recover? What actions must be taken by leadership?  What’s a Twitter chat? “The surest way to make employees untrustworthy is to distrust them — and to show it.” – Henry StimsonTrust is an essential ingredient to creating a healthy workplace culture. Organizations that hire, develop and recognize their workers based on respectful practices will enjoy greater levels of employee engagement and more success in their talent management strategies.However, trust in the workplace has been eroding because of an increase in downsizings, acquisitions and new technology, and the constant fluctuations of an unstable global economy. It’s more important than ever that leaders overcome the communication, training and employee-relations issues that contribute to uncertainty and destroy a healthy culture.Inspiring trust in your employees begins well before individuals join your company. A negative candidate experience is a red flag to applicants about the level of respect and courtesy that an organization probably extends to its own employees, and careless onboarding practices will certainly leave newbies with a feeling of “buyer’s remorse” after their first day.Workplace expert Nan Russell in Psychology Today  states that even though employee engagement levels are at historic lows, “Lack of engagement is a symptom. The problem in most workplaces is distrust, not disengagement. Trust doesn’t cause engagement; it’s a requirement for it. Essentially, trust enables engagement. If you want engagement, you need trust.”And how do workplace politics and gossip diminish trust even further? Mike Myatt, in his Forbes article “The Fastest Way to Kill Corporate Culture,” says: “Allowing gossip in the workplace is like encouraging your employees to swim with sharks. Let me cut right to the chase—real leaders don’t participate in gossip, and likewise they don’t tolerate gossip from others. Gossip destroys trust, assails credibility, and is one of the greatest adversaries of a healthy corporate culture. The emotional distress and political discord associated with gossip undermines workplace performance, and can be nothing short of disastrous.”  Leadership expert Susanne Jacobs identifies eight intrinsic drivers of trust that are necessary in the workplace:last_img read more

Facebook Users Being Lured into Internet Fraud Operations

first_imgGullible teenagers from across the United Kingdom are being lured through Facebook to assist criminal operations involved in identity theft, hacking scams and other Internet fraud incidents, according to an investigation conducted by the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail.According to reports, individuals are being recruited under the promise to make up to £4000 – £12,000 ($5880 – $17,640 US dollars) in just half an hour through the social networking site if they agree to offer their bank accounts to fraudsters as a place to deposit funds stolen from innocent Internet fraud victims. “Card mules” then withdraw the cash and split the proceeds with the criminals, helping them to avoid detection by police.What many that get caught up in the scams fail to realize however, is that this opens them to potential prosecution for money laundering – and the risk of a maximum 14-year jail sentence.- Sponsor – Money laundering is the process of creating the appearance that large amounts of money obtained from serious crimes, such as Internet fraud, organized retail crime, drug trafficking, or terrorist activity, originated from a legitimate source. Currently a worldwide problem, Internet fraud operations want their illegal funds laundered so that they can then use their money without fear that the funds will be traced back to their criminal deeds. Laundering also helps avoid the funds being confiscated by law enforcement. By transferring and then withdrawing the funds from numerous legitimate bank accounts across a wide area, this serves to “launder” the money and reduce risks with the help of countless naïve and susceptible cohorts.Hundreds of Facebook pages were found where advertisements were requesting accomplices to help them turn the proceeds of identity theft, and other Internet fraud activities into cash. The ads tempt potential recruits with photographs of teenagers in nightclubs and shopping malls posing with large amounts of cash, Apple computers and shopping bags from designer retailers to help lure them into the scam. Here’s how it works:The investigation revealed how a reporter posed as a youngster willing to help the criminal gangs and was contacted by a fraudster who offered the reporter the chance to make between £4,000 and £12,000 in just 30 minutes and promised to split any proceeds “50/50” if he could deposit cash in the reporter’s account and then meet up to withdraw it from a bank.The investigator was told to bring his bank card to a busy underground train station, where it would be picked up by the fraudster’s associate, known as a ”runner.” Upon meeting with the “runner” the undercover investigator was told, “To avoid being caught by the police after you cash out, you should ring up your bank and say your card has been stolen.” He also advised the reporter to empty his account before laundering the money.Police recently launched an investigation based on the reports, and Facebook took urgent action to close the pages after being alerted. However, within 24 hours new pages had appeared on Facebook.While this particular incident took place in the United Kingdom, there are millions of victims of all different types of Internet fraud in the United States and around the world to include credit card fraud, identity theft, and other serious crimes. Internet sites such as Facebook and other forms of social media should be monitored on a regular basis as part of investigative efforts to deter this type of criminal activity.
