Weekend Transpo route ‘popular’

first_imgAfter a recent review of the Transpo weekend bus system, student government officials said the initiative has been a “popular” and much-appreciated service for students since it began operations Dec. 4, 2009.Student body president Grant Schmidt said he is pleased with the ongoing value Transpo has provided to members of the Notre Dame community by enabling Notre Dame students to travel to popular off-campus establishments for free.“Overall I think that this has been a great collaboration with Transpo and essentially, the city of South Bend,” Schmidt said. “It’ been a convenient way for students to go off campus and a safe means of them getting home.”On the first Friday Transpo was available, 496 Notre Dame students used the service. Since the second weekend of operation, the number of riders has consistently totaled roughly 150 students on Fridays and Saturdays, with the only major decreases occurring on the weekends of midterms and finals.The high rider numbers have led to a certain amount of foot traffic at pick-up locations near the local restaurants and bars Transpo serves, Schmidt said.“All of the establishments on the Transpo route seem to have a heavy amount of traffic, especially during late-night hours when demand is high for a cab,” he said.Schmidt said the Transpo system came from a student government concern about safety of students traveling to off-campus venues. After the Jan. 17 assault of three Notre Dame students who were waiting for the Transpo bus, Schmidt said student government has taken additional measures to ensure the continued safety of students using Transpo.“The day after that happened, I talked to Transpo about how to address future incidents,” he said. “Student government also printed maps on cards with the Transpo route and times on it. It was one initial way to inform students of where they should be and at what time.”Schmidt said the incident was “extremely unfortunate” but pointed out it was the only violent altercation that has occurred in relation to Transpo.Ryan Brellenthin, Schmidt’s chief of staff, said the exchange was regrettable but overall, Transpo has been a “phenomenal” service over the past few months.“From the beginning, Transpo has been all about safety of students when they are off campus,” Brellenthin said. “The incident was isolated and I think people would be hard-pressed to say that Transpo caused the incident.”As a result, student government has taken steps to ensure University students are never waiting around for the bus and thereby exposing themselves to potentially dangerlast_img read more

Sling Updates to 3G – Will Skype Be Next?

first_imgmike melanson Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#mobile#news#web SlingBox released the most recent version of its iPhone app today. The app allows SlingBox users to view streaming video from their home television wherever they are, whether or not there is a wireless network available. Sling had already announced its return to the 3G network at the beginning of the month, but the apps update just appeared this morning. The Slingbox app runs $29.99, but for those customers that have already downloaded the app, the update is included. The announcement comes as part of what may be an exciting week at the Mobile World Congress in BarcelonaWhile we’re excited about SlingBox coming to the 3G, we’re also wondering if Skype might be releasing their 3G version this week. Peter Parkes, the social media communications lead at Skype, interviewed Russ Shaw and posted a blog on Skype saying the company would be making “a couple of exiting announcements” this week at the conference.According to the video, which we’ve included below, Skype will make announcements concerning “how [it] makes apps available for download, either through Skype.com or app stores”, work with handset manufacturers and partnerships with mobile operators. The one company on everybody’s mind – Apple – was decidedly absent from the video and the blog.Both Skype and Sling were pulled from the 3G network last spring, before being allowed back on the network just recently. When AT&T announced that it would allow Sling to broadcast over the 3G networks at the beginning of this month, it said that it had worked with the company to make sure the app wouldn’t eat up too much bandwidth. According to an email from Marc Lumpkin, director of communications at Sling, the company made “improvements over time to the SlingPlayer Mobile app and worked with AT&T to ensure the application was optimized for AT&T’s 3G network. The app that AT&T tested beginning in December 2009 was significantly improved from previous versions.” What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech …center_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

Odisha forest dwellers panic in wake of order

first_imgLakhs of people residing in Odisha’s forested regions are panicked over possible eviction from their homeland in the wake of the Supreme Court’s recent order on the Forest Rights Act. A total of 1,45,524 applications seeking recognition of Individual Forest Rights (IFR) have been rejected in the State by the Supreme Court.“The State government must come to our rescue and help review our applications immediately,” said Khageshwar Majhi of Gadiajore village under Nuapada district, whose application has been rejected.Activists, however, felt that four months may be too little time to complete verification, re-verification or review process pending with the State government.“Lack of sufficient evidence has been found to be the cause of rejection in 50,492 applications. People residing in forest areas belong to the lowest strata of society. They have no knowledge of documenting their properties. Under this circumstance, considerate view should be taken while reviewing their claims,” said Y. Giri Rao, a leading activist for people’s right on forest resources. He said the statutory time frame provided for the review of rejected applications at the gram sabha, sub-divisional and district levels would take around 200 days.last_img read more
