An extensive digitisation project has been completed at the NEC Birmingham, including the installation of a variety of types of display to transform the venue and wider campus. Zoe Mutter examines the solutions creating an immersive and informative visitor journey. From way finding and driving food and beverage spend to delivering advertising and information, the digital transformation at the NEC exhibition venue in Birmingham needed to guarantee an exceptional end-to-end experience for visitors. The project, which was part of a broader facelift across the NEC campus to help position the NEC as a modern, technologically-advanced venue, saw Anna Valley implement digital solutions across Resorts World Arena, Arena Birmingham and the NEC. Helen Truman, lead project manager, NEC Group highlights the three key objectives when embarking on the project: “We were looking to sell advertising space to third parties, promote our own products and services such as catering, car parking and brand messaging, plus implement a different way of wayfinding to improve the customer experience and enhance navigation across the venue.” Two years ago, there were no digital displays across any of the N...

Newport Hospital Receives Magnet Recognition For Nursing Excellence Again

Newport Hospital has received notice that it has once again attained Magnet® recognition for nursing excellence, joining a select group of hospitals that have received the four-year designation four consecutive times. The honor, bestowed upon the hospital by The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Magnet Recognition Program®, is considered the gold standard for nursing excellence and provides consumers with the ultimate benchmark for measuring quality of care. Only hospitals that meet the rigorous standards for high-quality nursing excellence can achieve Magnet recognition, the highest national honor for professional nursing practice. Newport Hospital has continuously maintained Magnet recognition since 2004. This year, the hospital was further commended for demonstrating exemplary nursing in four specific areas: nursing professional development, behavioral health screening, emergency nursing and infection control. “I’m not sure people understand what a tremendous accomplishment it is to attain Magnet designation four times in a row,” said Crista Durand, Newport Hospital president. “There are only 498 hospitals in the entire world that are Magnet certified, and only 53 global...

Museum Tour: Ever wondered what homes looked like in the past?

Derived from the old English word ‘hus’, houses which mean dwelling units have existed since time immemorial. These have evolved manifold in terms of structure, design and material. It is important to note that houses are not just homes where family units reside but also a reflection of the geographical and weather conditions of a region, its native culture, customs, socio-economic conditions and above all, the psychologically prized possession of its owners. Here is a low down on some museums and open-air heritage centres where you can take a ‘traditional home trail’ to see how Indian houses were built. Dakshina Chitra Heritage Museum located 25 km from Chennai City Centre is an ode to the heritage, culture and crafts of South India. A highlight of this museum is a collection of a whopping 18 original houses that have been authentically reconstructed by the regional artisans themselves. This Tamil Nadu home section showcases how yesteryear merchants, brahmins, silk weavers, agriculturists as well as potters lived. Replete with courtyards, pillars and authentic artefacts and furniture, the houses have been replicated with not only the original doors and fittings but also the act...

France says signs of Syria chemical attack, but still checking

PARIS (Reuters) – France’s foreign minister said on Tuesday there were signs that chemicals had been used in attacks by Syrian government forces on rebels in northwest Syria, but they still needed to be verified. The United States said on May 23 it had received numerous reports that appeared consistent with chemical exposure after forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad launched an offensive on the rebel stronghold. “We have a sign of the use of chemical weapons in the Idlib area but for now there isn’t verification,” Jean-Yves Le Drian told the French parliament’s foreign affairs committee. “We are cautious because we think that the use of chemical weapons must be confirmed and lethal before we react,” he said. The United States, Britain and France launched air strikes in April 2018 against what they described as three Syrian chemical weapons targets in retaliation for a suspected gas attack that killed scores of people in the Damascus suburb earlier that month. Rebels fighting on the mountainous western edge of Syria’s last big rebel enclave of Idlib said on May 19 that the army had shelled them with poison gas, leading some to suffer choking symptoms. They sai...

New 3-D printing approach makes cell-scale lattice structures

A new way of making scaffolding for biological cultures could make it possible to grow cells that are highly uniform in shape and size, and potentially with certain functions. The new approach uses an extremely fine-scale form of 3-D printing, using an electric field to draw fibers one-tenth the width of a human hair. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘div-gpt-ad-1449240174198-2′); }); The system was developed by Filippos Tourlomousis, a postdoc at MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, and six others at MIT and the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey. The work is being reported today in the journal Microsystems and Nanoengineering. Many functions of a cell can be influenced by its microenvironment, so a scaffold that allows precise control over that environment may open new possibilities for culturing cells with particular characteristics, for research or eventually even medical use. While ordinary 3-D printing produces filaments as fine as 150 microns (millionths of a meter), Tourlomousis says, it’s possible to get fibers down to widths of 10 microns by adding a strong electric field between the nozzle extruding the fiber and the sta...

Awarepoint Assets Transferred to CenTrak Subsidiary – 2018-07-25 – Page 1

With an aim to extend CenTrak Group’s portfolio of technology tools for its real-time location system (RTLS) solutions, select assets of another RTLS company, Awarepoint, have been transferred to CenTrak’s subsidiary, Clinical Patents LLC (CPLLC). Through this transfer of Awarepoint’s assets to CPLLC, CenTrak reports, the firm has expanded its reach to include the San Diego company’s customer base, and has broadened its own capacity for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) solutions, as well as gaining Awarepoint talent. Awarepoint’s products and services will continue to be sold through CPLLC. CenTrak, reportedly the largest RTLS provider in North America, has about 1,000 hospital customers currently using its technology, while Awarepoint was approximately one-tenth the size. Awarepoint has traditionally provided 2.4 GHz RTLS tags that use the ZigBee protocol, but has more recently moved into BLE technology. CenTrak says it will continue offering these technologies to Awarepoint’s customers, while ZigBee technology may be phased out in the long run since other technologies can accomplish the RTLS data capture more effectively. Awarepoint has also deve...

It was April 24, 2012, and he was 8 months old. I had been back to

It was April 24, 2012, and he was 8 months old. I had been back to work for two months since maternity leave, and everything seemed hard then: coordinating a morning nap with a morning train, and all the breastfeeding. I generally felt I was failing life. On this day, though, I felt I was doing motherhood like a boss. I was introducing my child to a habit that would make him a contributing member of society. I was starting early. And I was making it a ritual we would do together. I think these are things that parenthood books would say were good. Eventually, he could walk, and eventually, with instruction, he was able to push the names for me. (I do this with the ATM, too, so isn’t that teaching him good financial habits?) His favorite part was always owning the final button – the red one that tallies your choices and signals, with a gratifying ding, that your vote is official. My favorite part was being together behind the curtain. It signified something secret and important, but also held an experience that only we could share, absent anyone’s gaze. And then, when the secret was complete, we would reenter the world, hopefully having changed it a little. Come 2016 Election Day,...
