Tower Bridge glass walkway shatters as bottle of beer dropped 140ft above the Thames

first_img The £1m glass walkway that opened across Tower Bridge a fortnight ago has been smashed after a beer bottle was dropped onto it by a caterer.  The walkway, which is 140ft high and boasts a unique view of the bridge and Thames below, was initially cracked by the bottle, but reports suggest a woman walking over the broken glass in stiletto heels caused the pane to shatter further.  Bosses replaced the cracked glass, which was in one of five layers, over the weekend. Chris Earlie, head of Tower Bridge, said the attraction was “completely safe”, though a glass ban may be brought in. The shattered glass Here’s how the world was alerted to the news:   Was in tower bridge walkway today, someone dropped a beer bottle; this happened pic.twitter.com/fYFju69XBS— Peter Gordon (@the1gordo) November 21, 2014  Well that tweet got quite a bit of attention… The damage was superficial and there was *never* any danger!— Peter Gordon (@the1gordo) November 24, 2014 To all of you asking about the welfare of the beer, no need to worry, I’m pretty sure it was finished— Peter Gordon (@the1gordo) November 24, 2014 Express KCS Tower Bridge glass walkway shatters as bottle of beer dropped 140ft above the Thames whatsapp whatsapp Monday 24 November 2014 9:25 pm More From Our Partners Brave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comColin Kaepernick to publish book on abolishing the policethegrio.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgFans call out hypocrisy as Tebow returns to NFL while Kaepernick is still outthegrio.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgMan on bail for murder arrested after pet tiger escapes Houston homethegrio.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgLA news reporter doesn’t seem to recognize actor Mark Currythegrio.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPorsha Williams engaged to ex-husband of ‘RHOA’ co-star Falynn Guobadiathegrio.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comFort Bragg soldier accused of killing another servicewoman over exthegrio.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comKansas coach fired for using N-word toward Black playerthegrio.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.com Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: bridges and landmarks London buildingslast_img read more

News / Shipping lines agree T&T digital standards and call for ‘widespread adoption’

first_img Ocean freight customers can now gain access to a standards-based API, following the adoption of track and trace (T&T) standards.The Digital Container Shipping Association (DCSA) said today the majority of its members had adopted T&T standards, enabling an API which allows shippers real-time, cross-carrier data on their containers.DCSA said “widespread adoption” would create better reliability and real-time responsiveness and carrier MSC called for collaboration across the industry.“While a variety of digital innovations exist in the maritime industry, MSC believes new solutions will only be fit for purpose if they can be operated across multiple carriers, service providers and geographies,” said André Simha, chairman of the DCSA and global chief digital & information officer of MSC.“Collaboration is essential in this regard, so we can establish the same technology standards throughout the industry. The T&T standards establish a consistent method for exchanging data between carriers and customers,” he added.Yu Kurimoto, MD corporate and innovation for ONE (Ocean Network Express), said: “Done properly, digitalisation will provide a foundation for integrating all aspects of global trade, uniting geographies and connecting stakeholders in a way that will not only enable ONE to deliver on its vision, but for container shipping to be seen as a leading light of industry.”This year is all about adoption, said DCSA chief executive Thomas Bagge, who has urged the ocean freight industry to act faster than the decade-plus it has taken air freight to digitise.“We’re very pleased adoption is gaining traction among the carriers. But digital transformation of the container shipping industry, and the resulting improvements in efficiency and customer experience, simply can’t happen without even more widespread adoption of digital standards.“DCSA’s focus for 2021 is to promote adoption among all stakeholders. Without adoption, the industry will not benefit from the digital foundation being created.”The DCSA T&T standard comprises an information model and interface standards that can be freely downloaded from the DCSA website; API definitions are available on SwaggerHub.

By Nicholas Florko April 8, 2019 Reprints WASHINGTON — President Trump has blasted them as “middlemen,” known for their “dishonest double dealing.” Key Democrats decry the industry as a “black box” under a “veil of secrecy.” Pharmaceutical companies, pharmacists, and doctors incessantly pummel them, in ads and in testimony, as the key culprits behind the nation’s rising drug prices.Now, the “middlemen” — pharmacy benefit managers, entities that aim to help insurance companies negotiate lower drug prices by managing formularies and extracting rebates — will have an unprecedentedly high-profile chance to defend themselves. Five of the industry’s top executives head to Capitol Hill this week for a pair of back-to-back hearings Tuesday and Wednesday. Whether their appearances manage to assuage some of those criticisms — or whether they succumb to tough questions — remains to be seen.

Land Rover stopping copycats by cutting out concepts

first_img Concep vehicles implement new design language and ideology of an automaker, so it’s easy to see why Land Rover is secretive about theirs. More often than not, LandWind would copy a design and rush it to market to beat the competition.The Range Rover Velar is another example, having been revealed in production-ready form earlier this year. As per McGovern’s comments, we may never see another Land Rover concept again. Copycats are never fun to deal with.Over the years, Land Rover has learned this the hard way – by being copied by Chinese manufacturer LandWind. After all, the X7 bears a very close resemblance to the Range Rover Evoque.But Land Rover has a solution – no more concepts. Per Auto Express, Land Rover design boss Gerry McGovern is so cautious about new concept designs being shown too early and eventually stolen by LandWind, that the British automaker hasn’t shown a concept since the Discovery Vision in 2014. ‹ Previous Next › RELATED TAGSLand RoverLuxury CarsLuxury VehiclesNew VehiclesAutomobile ManufacturingCars and Car DesignConcept CarsConsumer CyclicalsConsumer Products and ServicesCulture and LifestyleGerry McGovernIndustriesLand Rover Group Ltd.Land Rover Range RoverManufacturing SectorMotor Vehicle ManufacturingRange Rover EvoqueSUVs and Crossovers Trending Videos PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?

Lab Accreditation Should Be Mandatory – Minister Hylton

first_imgPhoto: JIS PhotographerMinister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton (3rd right), presents an accreditation certificate to the management of Biomedical Caledonia Medical Laboratory on behalf of the Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JANAAC). Accepting (from left) are: Board member, Lester Woolery; Chairman of the Board, Dr. Donald Christian; and Managing Director, Barbara Hendriks. Also participating in the handing over are: Chief Executive Officer of JANAAC, Marguerite Domville (right) ; and JANAAC Chairman, Dr. Cliff Riley. The presentation ceremony was held at Hotel Four Seasons, today (June 25). Lab Accreditation Should Be Mandatory – Minister Hylton CommerceJune 26, 2013Written by: Alphea Saunders FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, has expressed the view that laboratory accreditation should be mandatory, as is done in other territories.“I think the time has come for us to begin to consider this…the risks are too great,” the Minister emphasised. Currently, labs voluntarily seek out accreditation.Mr. Hylton was speaking on Tuesday, June 25, at the presentation of an accreditation certificate to Biomedical Caledonia Medical Laboratory, the first medical lab to receive the Jamaica National Agency for Accreditation (JNAAC) stamp of approval.Stressing the importance of the accreditation, Minister Hylton said Jamaica is on the verge of an economic transformation with the Global Logistics Hub initiative, and that all of the country’s operations must be able to withstand international testing and scrutiny, in order to effectively compete.“Providing accreditation for our health services will play a major role in that transformation and move us further towards the goals of making Jamaica the choice of place to live, work, raise families and do business,” he explained.Mr. Hylton added that accreditation of local medical labs to international standards is an important step in improving the quality of the health care for Jamaicans and foreigners.“Based on the cost/benefit assessment, there is a growing trend for hospitals in the US and the UK to outsource laboratory and diagnostic tests to developing countries, as it costs, on average, 70 to 80 per cent less,” he told the audience.In her remarks, Chief Executive Officer of JANAAC, Marguerite Domville, emphasised that the process of accreditation is a long one, but an effective health care system is required to: have medical labs that provide accurate results, within the meaningful timeframe that is needed for proper clinical management; and use appropriate lab procedures with respect to ethics, confidentiality and the safety of patients.“A medical lab accredited to the international standard ISO151 89 will deliver this type of high quality service, because a lot is required to meet this standard,” she stated.Mrs. Domville pointed out that the World Health Organisation (WHO) has reported that 70 per cent of clinical decision making is influenced by medical laboratory results.She informed that the medical laboratories requirement for quality and competence standard was developed with strong input from the medical, scientific and clinical international communities for use by medical labs, in developing their management systems, and maintaining their own competencies.The standard was also developed to allow accreditation bodies to confirm, or recognise the competence of these labs, through accreditation.“JANAAC, in conducting these assessments for accreditation, has used a team of technical experts to assess Biomedical lab and is satisfied that they have obtained objective evidence that indicate that this laboratory has satisfied all the criteria specified in this international standard, so you can feel confident when you use their services,” the CEO stated.As part of the accreditation process, there will be three consecutive years of surveillance, including review assessments, to ensure that the lab continues to fulfill the requirements, and at the end of four years, there will be a full reassessment, which is similar to the initial assessment, to ascertain the lab’s competence.Biomedical is the first medical lab in Jamaica to be accredited by JNAAC. The accreditation agency has so far awarded six accreditations to labs which have met the requirements of the international standard ISO/IEC 17-025. These labs are mainly concerned with food and environmental testing.Contact: Alphea Saunders Lab Accreditation Should Be Mandatory – Minister HyltonJIS News | Presented by: PausePlay% buffered00:0000:00UnmuteMuteDisable captionsEnable captionsSettingsCaptionsDisabledQualityundefinedSpeedNormalCaptionsGo back to previous menuQualityGo back to previous menuSpeedGo back to previous menu0.5×0.75×Normal1.25×1.5×1.75×2×Exit fullscreenEnter fullscreenPlay Advertisementscenter_img RelatedAccreditation Crucial to Country’s Competitiveness – State Minister Ffolkes Abrahams RelatedKingstOOn Gets Underway with Major Local and Int’l Animators RelatedMinister Hylton Sets Record Straight on Logistics Hublast_img read more
