This Request for Proposal was carefully developed in consultation with industry and highlights how our government is implementing innovative and proven procurement approaches to simplify the competitive process, increase job stability, and deliver the ships we need, sooner,” Canadian Minister of Public Services and Procurement Judy M. Foote said.The Canadian Surface Combatant project will replace Canada’s aging Iroquois-class destroyers and Halifax-class frigates. Up to 15 ships are scheduled to be built after the Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships are complete in the early 2020s.The first CSC ship is anticipated to be delivered in the mid-2020s.

  • Pretty Lights Releases USB Containing Sixteen Rare And Unheard Tracks [Listen]

    first_imgLast weekend, music fans gathered at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for the final day of 400 Festival on July 22nd. Making an appearance at this festival was the one and only Derek Vincent Smith, better known by his musical alias, Pretty Lights. 400 Fest was different from Smith’s other sets this year, as it marked his first solo set of 2017 as well as since the first night of Pretty Lights’ two-day Telluride, Colorado, event back in 2016.During his 400 Fest performance, Smith explored his large and always-expanding discography, playing crowd favorites such as “Finally Moving,” “Hot Like Sauce,” “More Important Than Michal Jordan,” “High School Art Class,” and “I Know The Truth.” On top of these crowd pleasers, Smith blessed long time Pretty Lights fans with a number of remixes that rarely make it into live performances, such as “Fly Like An Eagle (Steve Miller Band Remix),” “Time (Pink Floyd Remix),” and the Pretty Lights vs Led Zeppelin mix. Smith also played his newest single “The Sun Spreads In Our Minds” showing that even as Derek plays an old school Pretty Lights set, he is still pushing forward in his musical endeavors. However, this is only where this story begins.EXCLUSIVE: Pretty Lights Details The Vision Behind NOLA Pop-Up Parade, Shares Insight On New AlbumPretty Lights fan can recall that earlier this summer, Smith sent out USB drives containing unreleased “Flips” from season one of his Episodic Festivals, using the USBs to simultaneously announce his Red Rocks (August 11 & 12) and Chicago (August 18 & 19) dates for 2017. As Pretty Lights Live gears up for the second season of their highly-anticipated Episodic Festivals, Smith pushed the envelope even further with the announcement of the “Pretty Lights Movement”—a movement that aims to incorporate fans into Smith’s long-standing and supportive creative community through the sharing of art, friendship, and inspiration. Following his set at 400 Fest, Smith entrusted some of his fans with the ultimate gift, yet another USB stick.Pretty Lights’ Island Of Light Adds More Rooms, Luxury Casitas, And ExcursionsThe USB drive from 400 Fest contained sixteen tracks, straight from the Pretty Lights’ archive. To say these tracks are rare would be an understatement. The first two tracks on the USB were played at Pretty Lights’ infamous 2014 Red Rocks shows: the first is a remix of The Root’s “The Seed 2.0″ entitled “Don’t Ask” followed by a remix of Pretty Lights’ original “Wrong Platform.” Featuring the Colorado Symphony Orchestra taking Pretty Lights’ music to the next level,”Don’t Cost You Nothing” is sure to send chills through listeners’ bodies. The USB also contains “So Gangsta,” the ultimate summer jam that was also performed at Pretty Lights’ 2014 Red Rocks show, and “It’s All Because Of You” from Red Rocks 2015. When Derek Vincent Smith began the hashtag #plflix on his Instagram, he teased a track that fans had never heard before and haven’t heard since. The full version of this track, “Make It To The Top,” makes its debut on the USB. The last known track on the USB is a quick-minute mix of the iconic “No Rain” by Blind Melon.Pretty Lights Announces Episodic Festivals In New Hampshire And TexasFor those of you doing the math, there are seven songs listed above that made it onto the USB. The remaining nine tracks are never-before-heard tracks. These tracks vary in mood and tempo but all share the signature Pretty Lights sound that Smith has maintained over his eleven-year career. In the spirit of community, sharing, and furthering the Pretty Lights Movement, all sixteen of these tracks are available to listen to on the “Rarities” page via Soundcloud and at Go ahead, listen to the past, while we prepare ourselves for the future of Pretty Lights!

  • Facebook breaks wall between digital, real life

    first_imgTake a photo. Photoshop. Upload to Facebook. The steps sound simple, but Notre Dame professors said more thought goes into the process than most people realize.  Jessica Collett, assistant professor of sociology, said we are much more “intentional” in our online interactions with others. “It’s not that we want to put up an image of ourselves that is untrue or inaccurate,” Collett said. “[But people] are going to look for clues about who you are. Because we only have that split second, that first impression … we’re going to choose pieces of information to put up there that we think reflect who we really are.” As a result, the effects of Facebook can extend far beyond online profiles and into people’s lives and relationships.  She said others will often treat us according to the image of ourselves we present on Facebook. In turn, we act according to how we are treated. “If we have a preconceived notion about somebody, then we’ll interpret any kind of information in ways that support that [notion],” she said. Collett said Facebook also prompts us to define and categorize ourselves based on our interests.  “Facebook is really about us putting forth our identities,” she said. “That when we say that we like a particular [TV] show, we’re not just trying to say that ‘This is what I watch,’ we’re saying something about … the kind of person we are.”  Susan Blum, a professor of anthropology who has studied the effects of new media on the “self” for the past decade, said Facebook can function to prove or validate occurrences in our lives.  “People are very aware of the way they’re being seen,” she said. “I’ve heard people say, ‘Oh, wait until I post this on Facebook.’ So as they’re acting, they’re simultaneously conscious of the fact that their real-life action will become almost ‘realer’ when it’s posted.”  Dangers to identity Blum said one of the potential downsides to using Facebook, or any similar social media site, is that it causes people to perform an exaggerated identity that may or may not be real.  “I think there’s plenty of motivation to do that in our lives anyway, and so Facebook increases that tendency,” she said. Collett said these exaggerations of identity can trigger anxiety as relationships transition from the digital world to the real world.  “Sometimes you can believe that what you’re presenting isn’t accurate … maybe you choose your most flattering picture, and then you meet people who maybe you haven’t even met in person yet, and then there’s just this stress [of] living up to expectations,” she said. Facebook use also becomes risky, Collett said, when digital identities are too calculated. “I think it can be dangerous … if people get too caught up in the way that they’re presenting themselves, and don’t have a space where they feel like they can be their authentic selves,” she said.  Blum said she questions whether online interaction makes face-to-face interaction even more “scary” than it already is.  “Facebook, you can control because you do it at your own pace. You can almost post something, and change your mind,” she said. “In speaking, there’s all this sort of uncontrollable stuff that happens, which is why human speech is so powerful.” But Blum said interactions on social networking sites can actually augment real life interactions.  “There’s been what sociologists call ‘moral panic’ about social media, [concern about] the fact that people are more comfortable interacting digitally than they are face to face,” she said. “But there was a recent study from the Pew [Research] Center [that shows] the more active people are in social media, the more real life interactions they have as well.”  Public sphere Anita Kelly, a professor of psychology who has researched the effects of public versus private self-representation, said what we choose to say publicly has a much greater impact on our identity than what we say privately. She said the public nature of Facebook is what makes it so influential.  “To the extent that Facebook is more public, it has great potential to help or harm that identity,” she said. “Once you think others have this view of yourself, you feel you have to behave in a way that [confirms] those views.” Collett said that on Facebook, we must live up to a multitude of identities because different “types” of friends see us in different ways. “You have this clash of worlds … and it can incite drama,” Collett said. “So, it’s not just your Notre Dame friends, but it’s your high school friends … and it’s your friends from back home and it’s your grandmother and your aunt.” The question is, who will see that wall post or status update? Blum said college students usually think of their intended audience as their peers despite having a wide range of Facebook friends. “You’re creating a persona, as we do all the time in our real life, but you have time to create it and you’re aware of all the eyes that will be seeing it,” Blum said. “Although if you have 1,000 friends, that’s a lot of eyes.” Kelly said people should be more aware of just how much Facebook profiles impact the way others view us. “People should be more careful,” Kelly said. “There’s a mentality of ‘it doesn’t matter what people think,’ but no one [really] believes that,” she said.  She said negative images posted on Facebook can be forgotten, but not if they are vivid. “People remember things that are prototypes of a broader category, [for example] dancing on a tabletop without clothes, that fits the prototype of wildness,” she said. “It’s hard to undo that.”  Past, present and future  Blum said the extent of the cyber footprint we leave on Facebook is striking.  “There’s a sort of a digital self that’s out there, and even though Facebook only started seven or eight years ago, it’s going to predate itself [for example] by finding our baby pictures that people have posted, so pretty soon our whole life and biography will be digitally mapped,” she said. She said psychologists and sociologists have conducted extensive research on the way Facebook affects identity, but the enormous amount of data Facebook houses is used in other settings as well.  “It’s an interesting idea that there is all this data out there … which is somewhat terrifying,” Blum said. “And Facebook, like Google, can analyze it and organize it with no volition on our part, no intention on our part.” Collett said the new Facebook Timeline profile, which offers users the opportunity to sort and highlight life events chronologically, also makes it easier for users to look back on the past. And sometimes, looking back on the past lies outside our comfort zones. “We like to be selective about what it is that we remember, in the same way that we like to be selective about what it is we put forth [on Facebook],” Collett said. “I do think the Timeline is about people suddenly feeling, ‘Oh my goodness, am I defined by this page?’”  But regardless of how Facebook is formatted, Collett said the site still reflects our identity in much the same way.   “[People] are reacting against the fact that [Timeline] feels like it’s defining your life for you, but ultimately actually that’s what we’ve been doing for a long time,” she said. “I would argue that for a long time Facebook has been representing who we are, as far as our identities go.”last_img read more

It will be awarded to young and struggling artists, who are trying to bring their ideas to life. Jett has supported the festival since its inception in 2012, when it was a simple free screening on the beach, and she continues to inspire musicians and filmmakers alike.A half dozen jurors will choose winners in each screening category at the festival’s conclusion. The six judges include movie distributor Kate McEdwards, Producers Guild program director Patrick Gerety, publicist Maureen Masters, writer/director Chris Kenneally, writer/stuntman David Paterson and talent agent Kristina Cergol.“The Long Beach International Film Festival continues to provide an opportunity for filmmakers to come and see the types of filming locations Nassau County has to offer,” said Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano in a press statement. “Whether it’s our beaches, mansions, suburban areas and, of course, Gold Coast Studios and Grumman Studios, Nassau County is becoming the Hollywood East of the film and television production industry.”And the screens of Long Beach will take center stage.For scheduling, ticketing and other details, visit longbeachfilm.comlast_img read more

  • Defending your ATM

    first_imgCrimes occurring at ATMs have been on the rise over the past few years.  And the types of crimes are growing. From basic vandalism to skimming and shimming and even pulling the ATM from its base with a forklift.  If you can think it, criminals have tried it. And there are still thousands of ATMs that have not been updated with EMV technology. So, what’s a financial institution to do?  There are a number of things you can do to better defend your ATMs and better protect your investment. First, make sure you have all the latest security patches available for the machine.  It sounds simple. And it should be. But, you would be surprised what doesn’t get done if you don’t ask.  Criminals poke new holes in software every day. Patches and updates are created once these weaknesses are recognized. So, patches are not a one-time event.  They will be ongoing. Next, take a look at the ATMs physical structure.  Are there weaknesses in the physical structure that need repair?  Do you have barriers surrounding your island ATMs to prevent physical theft? Are your lobby-style ATMs bolted to the floor?  Is the lighting surrounding your ATM up to code?What security do you have in place?  Do you have active cameras in and outside your ATM?  What about alarms? Does your ATM alert you if someone has gained access without permission? Do you have anti-skimming devices installed?  These devices aren’t fool proof but make it very difficult if not impossible for a criminal to place their skimming device on the machine. Many of you have ATMs that need to be replaced due to the coming Windows 10 upgrade.  This is the perfect time to assess the location of your ATM. Is your ATM in public view or around the back or side of the branch?  Could it be moved to a better location? Drive to your ATMs at night and see how safe you feel using it. If you feel a little uncomfortable using your ATM at night, your members probably do as well.  When you purchase a new ATM, what are you buying? Do you know?  There are many types of ATMs. Some may not be suitable for placement at a financial institution.  The proper ATM will typically cost more money due to its vault, size and weight. Of course, all of this requires more time and effort from your staff.  Not only that, but you need staff that is knowledgeable. We all know that knowledge comes with experience. And unfortunately, experience comes at a cost.  But, these ATMs are part of your member reach and your brand. These ATMs have your name and logo on them. So, it is critical that they be in good condition for your members to access.  And to keep your fleet (no matter the number of ATMs) operating at optimal levels, you need dedicated staff with the experience and resources to get the job done. 14SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Joe Woods Joe Woods, CUDE is a 15-year credit union veteran.  He has spent time with Corporate One FCU, Liberty Enterprises, co-founded Legacy Member Services and was part of the senior management … Web: Detailslast_img read more
