The spaces are part of a building addition that will physically connect CU Boulder’s Leeds School of Business to the College of Engineering and Applied Science.The University of Colorado Board of Regents on Friday, Nov. 9, approved a $45 million building addition that will physically connect CU Boulder’s Engineering Center, housing the College of Engineering and Applied Science, to the Koelbel Building, housing the Leeds School of Business, and spark new ways to think about higher education.Construction is slated to begin in the spring on the addition, which includes nearly 30,000 gross square feet of renovation of existing space and construction of 45,000 gross square feet of new space, totaling nearly 75,000 gross square feet for the project. Learn more about the Leeds-Engineering addition.The addition will include an innovation and entrepreneurship hub where students from any discipline can collaborate with business and engineering students, faculty and local business leaders, as well as four technologically-enabled, active-learning classrooms to foster collaborative teamwork and experiential learning.“Business is becoming more collaborative, dynamic and technologically-advanced every day,” said Leeds Dean Sharon Matusik. “This project is so much more than a building expansion. We are breaking down traditional disciplinary boundaries and building cross-functional competencies in our students.”Other major proposed features of the project include a 200-seat auditorium. A reorganization of William M. White business library, meanwhile, will enhance services and provide more efficient student study space.”CU Boulder will soon be the only university in the country in which engineering and business students pass seamlessly between our buildings,” said College of Engineering and Applied Science Dean Bobby Braun. “Connecting these colleges with the Boulder entrepreneurship community will elevate our students, our campus and our state.” Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Published: Nov. 9, 2018 • By Julie Poppen center_img The preliminary rendering shows the view from the west of a building addition.The project is being funded primarily with donor philanthropy. Significant donors include The Anschutz Foundation, CU Foundation Trustee Alan Olson (Fin’62) and his wife Carol Ann (Soc’64), the Koelbel family (naming donors of the Koelbel building, which houses the Leeds School of Business), and local entrepreneurs and philanthropists Dan and Cindy Caruso.The improvements that are part of the project will help accommodate the 22 percent growth in business program enrollment and 70 percent growth in engineering enrollment over the past decade.Pending final approval by the Colorado legislature’s Capital Development Committee, completion is planned by the end of 2020.“The addition of this facility also creates a physical innovation and entrepreneurship hub on campus that welcomes all CU Boulder students and the business community,” Matusik said. “Today’s vote was a pivotal step forward in a very exciting project. Together, we are redefining how tomorrow’s leaders change the world.”Categories:Deadlines & AnnouncementsCampus Communitylast_img read more

T-Mobile, UPC offer concessions on Austria deal

It said it would create an integrated provider of mobile and fixed broadband and telephony, TV and entertainment services, and a “strong converged challenger and alternative” to market leader A1 Telekom Austria.It is not clear where the regulators are likely to look for concessions, due to the complementary mobile and fixed nature of the two companies, although UPC does have an MVNO business with around 73,000 customers and also has some wholesale deals in place.The deadline has now been extended to 9 July.

In the same period of 2018, the company reported a $1 million loss.Operating profit fell 34.5 per cent to $110 million in the recent period due to one-off charges and higher amortisation expense.Millicom’s main market, Latin America, was the biggest revenue driver, increasing 5.6 per cent to reach $1.5 billion.In a statement, CEO Mauricio Ramos (pictured) said the company made significant progress on a number of strategically important fronts during Q2, including a long-term strategy to exit Africa and focus solely on Latin America .He pointed to good progress of its Cable Onda integration, the disposal of its operations in Chad and closing the acquisition in Nicaragua.“Although the current macroeconomic environment in Nicaragua presents challenges, we are excited about the long-term growth opportunity we see in the country,” said Ramos.Fuelled by the Nicaragua takeover, its Tigo mobile unit added 3.2 million customers. The company also added 540,000 4G smartphone data customers during the period, reaching 11.9 million in total. Mobile ARPU, however, declined slightly to $7.4 billion from $8 billion in Q218.

Girl Makes Good on Bid to Recycle No. 5 Plastic

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreThe slogan was “Gimme 5” and, with a little help from her school, 6-year-old Tess Mullen collected eleven large-size garbage bags full of No. 5 plastic – the type used to make yogurt containers, cottage cheese tubs and other food containers. Even though No. 5 plastic is recyclable, it is not accepted by the local county recycling program, so Tess and her mom decided to collect them for an Earth Day project at school. They found a recycler in another Minnesota county that would take their truckload of plastics. Best of all the project had a lasting effect on the family: Never again could they feel comfortable throwing away their yogurt cups.

Bergeser ke Era Otomatis, Maskapai Iberia Uji Coba Facial Recognition

first_imgSumber: istimewa Maskapai penerbangan asal Spanyol, Iberia diberitakan telah meluncurkan proyek percontohan pengenalan wajah atau yang beken dengan sebutan facial recognition di hubnya di Terminal 4 di Bandara Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas. Adapun proyek percontohan ini ditujukan untuk meningkatkan pengalaman penumpang yang hendak bertolak atau baru datang di bandara berkode IATA MAD ini.Baca Juga: Tidak Melulu di Bandara, Osaka Metro Hadirkan Teknologi Face Recognition di Stasiun Bawah TanahSebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman passengerterminaltoday.com, dalam menjalani proyek percontohan ini, pihak bandara bekerja sama dengan sejumlah perusahaan terkait, seperti Aena, Informatica El Corte Ingles, S.A. (IECISA), Gunnebo, dan Thales. Tujuan hadirnya proyek ambisius ini adalah agar supaya arus pergerakan penumpang di bandara menjadi lebih cepat, karena teknologi yang terpasang memungkinkan penumpang mengidentifikasi diri mereka sendiri di kontrol keamanan dengan menggunakan profil biometrik mereka. Dengan begitu, para penumpang tidak perlu lagi menunjukkan dokumen pribadi mereka, dan perjalanan mereka di bandara akan menjadi jauh lebih efisien waktu. Menurut pihak maskapai, uji coba ini akan diuji coba antara rentang enam hingga 12 bulan dengan penumpang maskapai yang hendak bertolak menuju Asturias atau Brussels – dimana kedua rute penerbangan ini dilayani oleh maskapai bintang lima, Iberia. Uji coba ini juga akan memungkinkan pengguna untuk mendaftar melalui aplikasi di perangkat seluler mereka, dan juga tersedia di kios yang ditempatkan di konter check-in 848 dan di depan area kontrol keamanan Terminal 4. Sistem pengenalan wajah juga dipasang di gerbang J40 dan J58 Terminal 4.Baca Juga: Pilah-Pilih Vendor, Bandara Internasional Changi Siap ‘Pekerjakan’ Facial RecognitionPenumpang dapat mendaftar menggunakan aplikasi Iberia atau Aena atau di kios-kios di Terminal 4, diharuskan untuk memindai kode QR boarding pass dan menghubungkannya dengan profil mereka.

The champions of drivers and teams have been determined in the…

first_imgPortugal’s Antonio Felix da Costa became the Formula E champion two stages before the end of the season, but his DS DSececah secured first place in the overall team standings. Content will continue after the ad Advertising The Formula E Championship managed to run three stages before the Covid-19 pandemic, but now six stages are taking place in Berlin, at the historic Tempelof Airport, where the organizers have taken care of three configuration tracks.At the start of the season, da Costa was the overall leader, but two consecutive victories in Berlin further strengthened his hopes for the title. He then finished fourth in the third race at Tempelof Airport, and on Sunday, the seventh race of the season, he finished second, behind teammate Jean Eric Verne.Thus, two stages before the end of the season, da Costa has 156 points, but his closest follower in Verne has 80 points. No one else can overtake the Portuguese this season.After the triumph in the overall standings, da Costa was very emotional and admitted that it was not far to give up. “I don’t have a word right now. All bad times come to mind because I was very close to giving up. Thanks to the people around me, I didn’t do it,” said the Portuguese, who thanked both his team and his teammate in Verne. In Verne, on the other hand, the second place in the overall standings awaits him, with Maimilian Günter (BMW i Andretti), Lucas di Grasi (Audi ABT) and Sebastian Buemi (Nissan e.DAMS) 69 points behind. Mitch Evans (Panasonic Jaguar) has 67 and 65 points, respectively.DS Techeetah has dominated the Formula E Championship in recent years. In the previous two seasons, Verne became the champion, but last year the team also triumphed in the team rating.DS Techeetah has scored 236 points this season, but its closest follower, Nissan e.DAMS, has reached 121 points with its drivers Oliver Rowland and Sebastian Buem.last_img read more

Wizards sign Isaiah Thomas to one-year contract

first_imgCeltics at Wizards 5/7/17 The Washington Wizards have signed point guard Isaiah Thomas to a one-year contract worth the veteran minimum, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. In my opinion, this was a low-risk, high-reward signing, as the Wizards were in need of a point guard due to the departure of Tomas Satoransky. Welcome to Washington, Isaiah!Please follow and like us: Prior to signing with Washington, Thomas most notably played for the Boston Celtics, where he blossomed into a well-developed point guard and would eventually lead his team to the Eastern Conference Finals.center_img The Thomas-led Celtics defeated the Wizards in seven games in the Eastern Conference semi-finals in the 2016-2017 NBA season, and he would record a career-high 53 points in Game 2, which would propel Boston to a 129-119 victory at home. The missed games and rare starts are due to hip injuries that have sidelined him for the majority of the past two seasons. In fact, Thomas had arthroscopic hip surgery completed during the 2017-2018 season, during his short stint with the Lakers. The 30-year-old guard recorded 8.1 PPG, 1.9 APG, and 1.1 TRPG in just 12 games played with the Denver Nuggets last season. In those 12 games, Thomas would not start in any of them. In the last two seasons, the veteran guard has only played 29 games, while just starting one contest in the 2017-2018 season. last_img read more
