A third of employers predict pay increases of between 2 and 299

first_imgJust over one-third (35%) of employer respondents expect to implement a basic pay increase of between 2% and 2.99% in the year to June 2020, according to research by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and the Adecco Group.Its Labour market outlook: Summer 2019 report, which polled 2,104 UK organisations, also found that 36% predict that their basic pay awards will increase by at least 3% over the next year, compared to 28% of respondents that thought this in 2018. In addition, 18% of employer respondents plan to give a basic pay rise of between 1% and 1.99% in the next 12 months.Overall, employers’ median basic pay increase expectations in the year up to June 2020 are 2%, although this increases to 2.5% for the private sector. Median basic pay awards for the public sector over the upcoming year, on the other hand, are 1.5%, compared to 1% three months ago.Gerwyn Davies (pictured), senior labour market adviser at the CIPD, said: “Amidst the current political uncertainty, the UK labour market is holding up surprisingly well. Labour demand remains strong, and the robust supply of non-EU [employees] has helped many employers meet this demand; partly owing to the government’s decision to remove the migration cap for doctors and nurses.“This has been key to freeing up visa capacity for employers in other sectors [that] have sensibly been able to resolve skill shortages by hiring non-EU migrants. Looking ahead, the government’s post-Brexit immigration policy must demonstrate similar levels of flexibility, to ensure that such shortage occupations benefit from a more generous minimum salary threshold.“However, the alarm bell is sounding for employers trying to fill low-skill roles, many of [which] are still in wait and see mode. It’s essential that those employers are prepared for reduced numbers of candidates and further restrictions to low-skill labour planned from 2021 with a workforce plan.”The key factors behind increasing basic pay by 2% or more include inflation (43%), the going rate of pay elsewhere (37%), recruitment and retention pressures (29%) and affordability (25%).Employers that expect average basic pay at their organisation to rise by less than 2%, or not at all, cite restraint on public sector pay (41%) and affordability (38%) as their key reasons. Other factors include absorbing labour costs, such as the national living wage and auto-enrolment into pension schemes (20%), uncertainty about future access to the EU market (18%) and the going rate of pay at other organisations (12%).Alex Fleming, country head and president of staffing and solutions at the Adecco Group UK and Ireland, added: “In our tightening labour market, ensuring businesses have the right supply of talent isn’t a new issue, and during these uncertain times, the ‘grow your own’ mentality has become more important than ever for organisations. Workforce planning comes into play again as organisations need to be constantly looking forward and anticipating their future needs and training their own talent accordingly.“Planning ahead for workforce strategies is a long-term solution that now needs to be addressed more urgently than ever, so the labour market can thrive with the right talent in place.“Conversely, in the shorter-term, imaginative recruitment strategies are also needed to find the right kind of skillsets to bring into organisations, for example unlocking hidden pools of talent can hold considerable value for employers and should be seriously considered as an important source.”last_img read more

Earth Hour 2019 Tik Tok joins WWF to encourage players embrace sustainable

first_img Greenpeace Activists Crash Congressional Hearing Dressed As Swamp Monsters To Protest Oil Ties In 2019, the annual Earth Hour, which is understood to be the world’s largest, environmental grassroots movement to day, is being celebrated across the globe on March 30. It is organised by World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) to encourage individuals, communities and business organisations to turn off the lights one hour from 8:30 pm and 9:30 pm, as a mark showing concern and work towards the betterment of the planet Earth.Now, popular short video sharing platform Tik Tok in collaboration with WWF-India is organising a campaign ‘Bee4ThePlanet’ to persuade its players to embrace sustainable practices such as shun plastics, consume water judiciously and do their part in conserving the local biodiversity. Tik Tok in collaboration with World Wide Fund for Nature to celebrate Earth Hour with special initiatives in IndiaTik Tok Press Kit”We are excited to have partnered with the WWF-India to celebrate Earth Hour 2019, one of the most successful environmental protection related campaigns in the world, with over 180 countries participating. As a part of our commitment to users with fun engaging challenges, through this campaign, we hope to do our part and encourage our users to leverage their talent and creativity to participate and spread the word in raising awareness on the need for biodiversity conservation,” Sumedhas Rajgopal, Senior Manager, Strategy and Partnerships, TikTok, said in statement.As per Living Planet Report 2018, we are living through the Great Acceleration – a unique event in the 4.5 billion-year history of our planet – with exploding human populations and economic growth driving unprecedented planetary change through increased demand for energy, land and water. Over the past 50 years, the global ecological footprint (one measure of our consumption of natural resources) has increased by over 190%. The Living Planet Index suggests that India’s ecological footprint per person is less than 1.75 global hectares/person (which is the lowest bracket and is smaller than that of many large countries).However, India’s population which is currently in upward trajectory will face issues near future and its imperative not just for government or corporate companies, but also citizens to learn to consume resource conservatively before it’s too late.With Tik Tok have millions of active users, the company has started a novel #Bee4ThePlanet-hash-tag and ‘buzz for the planet’ campaign with fun bee sticker, encouraging them to come with interesting videos with information on conservation of important resources and also encourage family and friends to reduce the carbon footprint (means—reduce the impact on environment by consuming less resources) and basically embrace minimalistic lifestyle. Tik Tok may get banned in IndiaTik Tok app/Google Play store (screen-grab)This is a novel initiative by Tik Tok particularly in India, where the former is facing negative publicity, as elected lawmakers in the country are vying for a ban on Tik Tok, as it is accused to ruining Indian culture and inciting pervert behaviour among users.Nagapattinam’s Thamimun Ansari, Member of Legislative Assembly (MLA) of ruling party All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) during a debate at Tamil Nadu legislative assembly (Fort St George) said TikTok was degrading Indian culture, encourages pornography and also causing law and order problem in the state. As the people’s representative, it’s their responsibility to ban such nefarious mobile app, Ansari added.Several sections of people are asking for a ban on Tik Tik and we will urge Central government to take action similar to the prohibition of suicidal online game Blue Whale challenge, Ansari noted.In a related development, Tik Tok has introduced safety feature to curb online bullying. The company has released a new user-defined word filter that blocks any filthy comments in the video-sharing app. Tik Tok users can self-define 30 Hindi and English words and if required they can re-assign the word as and when they want.

Prosecutors Bill Cosbys Bid for New Trial is Meritless

first_imgBy Maryclaire Dale, The Associated PressProsecutors in Bill Cosby’s sex assault case called his bid for a new trial or sentencing hearing “meritless,” and asked the judge to deny him a post-trial hearing.Cosby, 81, has asked for a do-over in the Pennsylvania sex assault case that ended with him being sent to prison last month to serve a three- to 10-year sentence. A jury found he had drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia estate more than a decade ago. The judge declared him a “sexually violent predator” who remains a danger to the community.In this Sept. 24, 2018 file photo, Bill Cosby departs after a sentencing hearing at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa. Prosecutors in the Cosby case are calling his bid for a new trial or sentencing hearing “meritless.” Cosby wants a do-over in the Pennsylvania sex assault case that ended with him going to prison last month to serve a three- to 10-year sentence. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum, File)Defense lawyers later argued Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill made mistakes during the trial and sentencing that invalidate the conviction and punishment. In a memo filed Oct. 19, District Attorney Kevin Steele said Cosby’s objections are “time-worn” and have been rejected by the judge before.Cosby called the sentence more than twice the minimum suggested in state guidelines, and complained he must admit the crime and undergo sex-offender therapy to have any real chance at parole in three years. Steele, in response, called parole “only a possibility,” and said the state parole board board was free to set the rules.The defense also attacked the validity of a taped phone confrontation between the accuser’s mother and Cosby in early 2005. Cosby, in his post-trial motion, said the tape had been doctored. Prosecutors said it has long been clear the mother was struggling with the tape recorder and did not record the entire call.And the defense said the entertainer’s 2015 arrest may have come too late because it’s unclear when the encounter took place. But Steele noted that Cosby himself said in a deposition it occurred in 2004 – within the 12-year window to file charges.Cosby, best known for playing the wise-cracking Dr. Cliff Huxtable on the top-ranked “Cosby Show” from 1984 to 1992, is imprisoned at a state prison in Collegeville, about 30 miles northwest of Philadelphia.last_img read more

The Yankees Got In Trouble Over A Beer Foam Printer

Well, now you can, thanks to Beer Ripples.For those of you who may have missed it, Beer Ripples is a printer that can lay out images and text on top of ordinary beer foam. It uses a malt-based ink to make the magic happen. There’s a companion app that lets you upload whatever creation you want to print.Its makers pitch Beer Ripples as a fun way to generate buzz, especially on social networks.

But hey, it’s still pretty cool to see an image printed on a beer.Not everybody was so excited about these particular images. The MLB, for example, was actually a little upset about it. Not Goose Gossage “old man swears at cloud” angry. Maybe more “disappointed” that the Yankees hadn’t reached out.It mostly has to do with the players’ union and marketing. Any time a player’s name or face is used on a product, the MLBPA has to get its slice of the pie. Typically, that means things like hats, shirts, and jerseys… but the rules would probably extend to beers, too.Technically, there might not be anything wrong with selling a beer emblazoned with The Judge. You know, apart from drinking someone’s face. To play by the rules, though, the vendor would have to charge more and give the union its cut.Or the Yankees could just cover the difference.

Stretchable sodiumion battery electrodes made using sugar cubes

Credit: Li et al. ©2017 WILEY-VCH Explore further “This first-of-its-kind battery design maintains better mechanical properties compared with most reported designs using one or more rigid components that fail to meet the stretchability requirement for the entire device,” Yu told Phys.org. “Moreover, the demonstrated electrochemical performance rivals most previously reported stretchable energy systems. This novel stretchable sodium-ion battery represents a promising alternative for the next generation of energy-storage technologies in a broad range of applications.”In its current form, the battery retains nearly 90% of its capacity after 100 cycles of stretching to 50% strain. This performance is sufficient to enable the researchers to mount the stretchable battery on an elbow brace, and demonstrate that the battery continues to power an LED when the user’s arm is bent at different angles. The stretchable battery has potential applications in conformable health monitoring skin sensors, wearable communication devices, roll-up displays, and implantable medical devices.In the future, the researchers plan to make further improvements to the battery, such as extending the lifetime and scaling up the design to larger-sized batteries. They anticipate that the sponge design can also be extended to other types of devices, such as energy-harvesting devices.”Future directions will be focused on further improving the mechanical properties and electrochemical performance, along with lowering the manufacturing cost,” Yu said. (Phys.org)—Scientists have used sugar cubes as a template for synthesizing stretchable battery electrodes, which serve as a key component in newly designed stretchable yet mechanically robust sodium-ion batteries. Although there has recently been a great deal of research on stretchable batteries, usually these devices still contain some rigid components. By using electrodes templated on sugar cubes, the new battery is one of the first sodium-ion batteries whose components are all fully stretchable.

Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. The scientists, led by Guihua Yu at the University of Texas at Austin, have published a paper on the new stretchable batteries in a recent issue of Advanced Materials.By starting with sugar cubes, the researchers were able to obtain the size, shape, and porosity needed for high-performance battery electrodes. The researchers first placed ordinary sugar cubes on top of a polymer gel in a dish. After the dish was placed in a vacuum, heated in an oven, and washed, the sugar was dissolved away and the polymer gel took its place, resulting in stretchable polymer sponges. The pores of the polymer sponges were then filled with a conductive graphene-based solution to create “sponge electrodes,” which the researchers achieved by immersing the sponges in the solution and squeezing them several times to soak it up.As the researchers explained, the sponge’s porous architecture provides a combination of stretchability, mechanical strength, fast sodium-ion transport, and large storage capacity. Tests showed that the full battery can be stretched to 50% beyond its original length, and that the strain is limited by the intrinsic properties of the polymer material. The researchers expect that modifying the polymer or developing a new nanoarchitectured elastomer could further increase the stretchability of the battery.

Why Parent Your Kids When This Robot Nanny Can Do the Job

first_img Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. September 30, 2016 4 min read Robots can do many things humans can do, often better. They mix cocktails, stand in for security guards and dispose of bombs. One thing we’re sure they can never do better: care for our kids.They can’t snuggle, kiss boo-boos or exhibit unconditional love, not like a mom or dad or child care worker can. But that didn’t stop the makers of iPal from creating a creepy nanny robot that they’re billing as a babysitter. It’s a 3-foot-tall talking bot, complete with a surveillance cam, a touch screen tablet and tons of apps, you know, to keep your kid occupied and happy when you can’t.Avatarmind, with offices in China and Silicon Valley, designed iPal to be a “friendly companion to play with and talk to naturally.” The company’s humanoid mother’s helper can “dance, tell stories and play games.” If all that isn’t enough to keep your kid busy and quiet — and out of your hair — no worries, the robot also enables them to live-chat with their real-life buddies, swap videos and peruse social media, all without in-person parental supervision.Related: This Startup Employs Robots That Bake Pizza En Route for DeliveryLike a real babysitter, the pastel-trimmed iPal learns what your child likes and dislikes over time and, unlike a real babysitter, and constantly scrapes the cloud to “increase its knowledge on subjects of interest to your child.” The thing even plays “rock, paper, scissors” using its hard plastic jointed fingers. Aw, what a gregarious, doting little droid.Oh, and should your mini-me ever ask the rolling machine heavy kid-questions such as, “Why is the sun hot?” you bet iPal has a pre-loaded answer on deck. Let’s hope your little one doesn’t ask it where he or she came from. We’re just guessing here, but that’s probably a doozie that iPal isn’t cut out for, which is a shame, because the birds-and-bees talk is an awkward topic to broach. Best to leave it to a bot.Speaking of parenting tasks that suck, iPal understands that most mundane daily parental duties are also a drag. We’re talking morning and bedtime routine and hygiene stuff, such as nagging your kids to wake up, get dressed, brush their teeth and wash their germ-filled hands before meals. Don’t fret, it has apps for all that.Related: Get Your Digital Drink on With Robot-Crafted CocktailsIn case you’re worried that iPal lacks the feels, Avatarmind assures it has the sensors for that. After all, “iPal is not a cold, unfeeling machine, but a great companion for your child.” Its handy-dandy “emotion management system” automatically detects and reacts to your wee one’s feelings. That’s because it’s programmed to mirror your kid’s mood when he or she is happy and to cheer him or her up when sad.Finally, artificially intelligent algorithms and robotic canned empathy statements to the rescue. What more could a kid ask for?Parents looking to save a buck on a real-life babysitter will have to wait to find out how much all this hard-wired plastic convenience will set them back. We can’t imagine it’ll be cheap, what with pretty much a good chunk of your child’s upbringing in its metal-jointed robot hands and all.Parenting. Why trouble yourself with all that drama when there’s a bot that can do the duty for you?center_img How Success Happens Listen Nowlast_img read more

Cannabis Dependence Research Follows Potency Legalization

first_imgA new study in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence found that for individuals whose first use of cannabis was with a high THC content (an average of around 12 percent THC) had more than four times the risk of developing the first symptom of CUD within a year. (Two caveats being: the participants in this study had a history of other substance abuse disorders, and this looked at the first symptom of CUD, not a full-tilt diagnosis.)Figuring out such details improves the odds that we’ll be able to detect and treat cannabis use disorder. “Early intervention is important to address substance use before it progresses to a substance use disorder,” says Iowa State University psychologist Brooke Arterberry, coauthor of the study. But to pull that off, she says, we need to better understand when and why symptoms emerge.Those answers will likely be especially important in intervening with adolescent users, whose brains continue to develop into their mid-20s. Studies suggest that heavy cannabis use among this demographic can lead to changes in the brain. Particularly concerning is the apparent link between cannabis and schizophrenia, the onset of which can happen in the early 20s. Cannabis, like alcohol or opioids, can lead to both physical dependency (and the accompanying withdrawal symptoms) and addiction. But the drug itself is only part of the equation. “The risk of addiction is really less about the drug and more about the person,” says Danovitch. If it was just about the drug, everyone would get hooked on cannabis. Factors like genetics and social exposure contribute to a person’s risk.Another consideration is dosing. Cultivators have over the decades developed strains of ever higher THC content, while the compound in cannabis that offsets THC’s psychoactive effects, CBD, has been almost entirely bred out of most strains. Might the rise in the prevalence of CUD have something to do with this supercharging of cannabis? Dependence is not the same as addiction, by the way. Dependence is a physical phenomenon, in which the body develops tolerance to a drug, and then goes into withdrawal if you suddenly discontinue use. Addiction is characterized by a loss of control; you can develop a dependence on drugs, for example steroids, without an accompanying addiction. You can also become addicted without developing a physical dependence—binge alcohol use disorder, for instance, is the condition in which alcohol use is harmful and out of control, but because the use isn’t daily, significant physical dependence may not have developed. “An important similarity that all addictive substances tend to have is a propensity to reinforce their own use,” says Danovitch. Cannabis is a hell of a drug. It can treat inflammation, pain, nausea, and anxiety, just to name a few ailments. But like any drug, cannabis comes with risks, chief among them something called cannabis use disorder, or CUD.Studies show that an estimated 9 percent of cannabis users will develop a dependence on the drug. Think of CUD as a matter of the Three C’s, “which is loss of control over use, compulsivity of use, and harmful consequences of use,” says Itai Danovitch, chair of the department of psychiatry and behavioral neurosciences at Cedars-Sinai. A growing tolerance can also be a sign.Compared to a drug like heroin, which can hook a quarter of its users, the risk of dependency with cannabis is much lower. The symptoms of withdrawal are also far less severe: irritability and depression with cannabis, compared to seizures and hallucinations with heroin. Plus, an overdose of cannabis can’t kill you.But as medicine and society continue to embrace cannabis, we risk losing sight of the drug’s potential to do harm, especially for adolescents and their developing brains. Far more people use cannabis than heroin, meaning that the total number of users at risk of dependence is actually rather high. And studies are showing that the prevalence of CUD is on the rise—whether that’s a consequence of increased use due to legalization, a loss of stigma in seeking treatment, or some other factor isn’t yet clear. While cannabis has fabulous potential to improve human physical and mental health, understanding and then mitigating its dark side is an essential component. It’s also important to keep in mind that in the grand scheme of drugs, cannabis is nowhere near as risky as opioids. But because of prohibition, scientists have been hindered in their ability to gather knowledge of how cannabis works on the human body, and how different doses affect different people (and potentially the development of CUD). Once acquired, those insights can inform how people should be using the drug. Groups like the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, for example, want proper labeling to keep cannabis out of the hands of children. And we need clear communication of the potency of products that can be very powerful—a chocolate bar containing 100 milligrams of THC is not meant to be consumed all at once.“The reasons we demand proper labeling is all because of an awareness that cannabis is a mood-altering substance,” says Paul Armentano, the organization’s deputy director. “It possesses some potential level of dependence and it carries potential risk. And we believe prohibition exacerbates those potential risks, while regulation potentially mitigates those risks.” Like other substance disorders, cannabis use disorder is treatable. And as scientists develop a better understanding of CUD, we can intervene with appropriate therapies.Cannabis has big potential to treat a range of ills. And it’ll benefit users even more once we’ve characterized its risks more precisely.More Great WIRED StoriesEverything you want to know about the promise of 5GHow WhatsApp fuels fake news and violence in IndiaBlu-rays are back to prove that streaming isn’t everythingAn Intel breakthrough rethinks how chips are made9 Trumpworld figures who should fear Mueller the most👀 Looking for the latest gadgets?

Tourism Australia Launch phase two ad campaign today

first_imgToday Tourism Australia launched the second phase of their campaign – There’s nothing like Australia. The campaign calls on Australians to share their Aussie holiday experiences online in a new domestic tourism push.Nominating their friends and family, as their “Aussie holiday dream team”, people are invited to upload videos, images and stories to the www.nothinglikeaustralia.com.au website. A prize pool, worth more than half a million dollars including a $5 Sony music voucher for each entry, Qantas flights and 16 luxury Lodges of Australia accommodation packages are on offer.The campaign starts from the 16th September through till 30th November 2011.Geoff Dixon Chairman of Tourism Australia said the Australian domestic tourism industry remains very strong and has bounced back after a few flat years. Today is about reminding our fellow Australians of the quality tourism experiences our country has to offer. This campaign is about getting Australian’s to consider a dream holiday experience in their own backyard.Martin Ferguson, Minister for Tourism said despite the industry having had its challenges including the strong Aussie dollar and natural disasters there are positive signs for the tourism industry with further potential domestically and internationally.Last year Tourism Australia asked Australians to share their Australian holiday experiences in phase 1 of the campaign. 30,000 experiences were submitted online and were used to build an interactive map for holiday inspiration. Phase 2 encourages Aussies to enjoy these holidays in Australia. Tourism Australia Managing Director Andrew McEvoy said this campaign is rallying cry for the people of Australia to tell each other why Australian holidays are so good!

Many people want to travel with their pets For so

first_imgMany people want to travel with their pets. For some, the holiday or short break would just not be the same without their faithful, furry friend joining in the fun. For others, a long, overseas job posting or emigration might mean a lengthy journey for the family animals. The information below is designed to help answer some common questions about travelling with dogs, cats or ferrets. Travelling as a private individual with less common mammals, birds, reptiles, insects or fish may require different procedures. DEFRA (the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs) has a comprehensive website where you can check out all rules and regulations regarding travel with your pets or you can contact your local Animal Health Divisional Office.The Pet Travel Scheme (PETS)This UK government scheme allows you to travel in and out of European countries and certain Non-EU countries without your pet requiring a six month stay in quarantine upon its return. In order to qualify for this scheme, your pet will have to fulfil certain criteria. Your pet will require:• a microchip to be fitted by a qualified vet. The number should be read before and after fitting to ensure it is working properly. You should also ask your vet to read the chip each time you visit.• a vaccination against rabies after the microchip has been fitted to make sure the animal is correctly identified.• a bloodtest to make certain that the vaccination has provided the necessary protection against rabies. Important: six months must pass between receiving a satisfactory test result and your pet entering or re-entering the UK.• comprehensive documentation which you will need to obtain from qualified professionals.• treatment against parasites such as ticks and tape worms before re-entering the UK.Your destination countryYou will need to find out whether or not your chosen destination country is part of the PETS Scheme. If it is, then you will be able to travel in and out of that country or countries with relative ease. If not, then your pet will be required to spend up to six months in quarantine when you return to the UK.FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSWhich countries qualify for PETS status?EU Countries and territoriesNon-EU countries What do I do if my destination country does not have PETS status?Countries outside the scheme will have their own conditions of entry for you pets. You should contact your local Animal Health Divisional Office who will be able to provide advice as to which authorities you will need to contact in your destination country to ensure you meet their criteria for animal export.Upon returning to the UK, your pet will be required to spend 6 months in quarantine to ensure that it has not contracted any serious diseases. For more information see Defra’s quarantine proceduresHow and where will my pet travel?This will depend on the size of your animal. Some airlines will allow you take small pets onboard the plane with you but the kennel in which the creature is travelling must be small enough to fit under the seat in front of you and usually cannot exceed 8kg. It should be secure, but well ventilated and leak-proof.Larger creatures will be placed in the pressurised hold of the plane and will need to be housed in an IATA (International Air Travel Association) approved kennel.Which carriers take pets?The links below show the DEFRA approved carriers for routes from European and International cities to and from the UK:EuropeNon-EU countriesEach airline has its own regulations about transporting animals so one of the golden rules is to get in touch with your chosen carrier and make sure you understand their particular terms of passage for your pet. For example Virgin offer a “Flying Paws” reward scheme for its four-legged customers with welcome gifts and the option for owners to earn points on their flying club account every time their pet flies.Do low-cost and budget airlines take pets?No UK-based low cost carriers allow pets to travel with their owners in the cabin and only Flybe will take pets as cargo in the hold. Some cheaper airlines based in Europe are somewhat more flexible though so consider the following carriers as options:Germanwings will take pets weighing less than 8kg as hand-luggage from as little as £17.Sterling will let you swap your hand-luggage allowance for your pet instead as long as it does not exceed 10kg in weight and the transporting container meets the required dimensions. The Scandinavian carrier will also take animals in the hold at a cost of 6 Euros per kilo.Costs?It all depends how far you are travelling with your pet. For all journeys you will need an IATA approved kennel and these start at around £30 for the smaller size containers and move upwards of £100 for the larger size kennels. They should meet certain criteria (see Tips for travellers with pets section) to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your animal.Your animal will have to under-go the necessary tests and vaccinations in order to qualify for the Pet Travel Scheme and costs vary here so it pays to shop around. The website www.passportforpets.com suggest prices can range from £160 to around £400 in the UK.You should then contact your carrier to discuss the price of transporting your animal since they will have different prices depending on your destination and it is not possible to provide an exhaustive list here.Are there companies that will help me arrange transport for my pet?There are a number of companies that specialise in arranging transportation for your pets. If you are travelling long haul however, be warned that prices can be expensive. To make a bespoke kennel, arrange documentation and fly a Labrador to Kenya, one company contacted quoted £1300 – one way.

services business where margins are likely to only shrink further Related News French management consulting major Capgemini’s $ 404 billion acquisition of India’s software services company IGate is significant among other things for its timing Indian IT firms have posted disappointing March quarter results with the revenues of the big four — TCS Infosys Wipro and HCL Technologies — either flat or falling on a sequential basis Capgemini’s buyout even if it comes at over three times IGate’s annual revenue of $ 12 billion could mark the start of a consolidation process where midsized domestic players faced with faltering growth and pressure on margins choose to be taken over Unlike say pharma or FMCG the IT industry has witnessed few large acquisitions barring IGate’s own purchase of Patni Computer Systems in 2011 and Tech Mahindra’s of Satyam Computer Services under the extraordinary circumstances of an accounting scandal involving the latter’s original promoter The coming times could however see buyouts becoming more common The main reason is the change happening within the industry The core business of Indian firms until now has centred on designing and building software applications or managing the IT systems for large multinational clients in North America and Europe To the extent these global concerns have found it cheaper to outsource or offshore such routine application development and maintenance operations Indian IT companies with their large pool of relatively low-cost engineering workers have made hay This business model is however now coming under threat from the growing automation of recurring manual IT tasks As software robots increasingly perform application management and back-office delivery services the traditional mode of billing based on the number of engineers deployed on a customer’s project would stand undermined Admittedly the domestic IT industry has in recent times focused on improving productivity and better utilisation of engineering manpower — for instance by reducing “bench” staff not assigned to active billable projects Indian IT firms eventually have to move beyond their current largely commoditised outsourcing services business where margins are likely to only shrink further That would mean building capabilities in product development and consulting — proactively identifying the problems of customers and proffering solutions rather than the latter deciding both the problem and technology solution for delivery by the IT vendor This transition to becoming complete IT services and consulting companies with competencies in data analytics and cloud computing — which is what the likes of IBM Accenture and Capgemini are — isn’t going to happen overnight That however is where the future is For all the
