The Job Auction

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, US, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Consider what you assume 'The Job Auction' to be for a second and ten times out of ten, its chief function will be obvious. It’s a website concerned with auctioning jobs.

It’s a notion so straightforward it mystifies the mind when you consider that it’s the first site of its kind. That isn’t to say, however, that The Job Auction shies away from its honest categorisation as a jobs board. Recruiters can post jobs with frozen salaries and working hours and sift through applicants in a similar manner to most garden variety jobsites, thus removing the need for negotiation.

Nevertheless, the site’s elevation above its competitors comes from the idiosyncratic appeal of auctions themselves. To understand why auctions are timeless is to understand how The Job Auction’s potential is boundless. The site actively promotes negotiations with both the prospective employee and employer able to agree on a price and then hash out the specifics once the gavel is down.

Users are also able to auction themselves, advertising their skill sets to those that require those skills for contracted employment. This role-reversal demonstrates how interchangeable the parts are on this site are and is emblematic of The Job Auction’s fluidity, with buyer becoming seller and vice versa.

Available in 35 countries (as of writing this), it should come as no surprise that this brand intends to be a global success. It’s this reach that attracts some simply to market their business through the site. Simply another way The Job Auction is a jack-of-all-trades and the quintessential modern professional’s jobsite.

Be it a skill, job or career, it can be auctioned, bid for and bought by anyone. Users can even advertise specific tasks, reducing the money one may have to commit whilst concurrently managing the time of the worker. An exceptional tool for freelancers particularly, the Tasks option is an efficient and relatively new addition to the site, proving TJA’s willingness to evolve.

There is a sense as one navigates the site, that the power has been bestowed fully to The JA’s users. Communicative tools like private messaging allow this marketplace of jobs to flourish. Participation itself seems to heighten business acumen as the agreement you reach is a product of the user’s willingness to bid and engage with other users.

TJA offers sufficient aid in the form of their CV Clinic where those using the site can tweak their CVs under the gentle and easy-to-use tutelage of the site itself.

It became apparent as I traversed and scouted the plethora of options each auction comes with and how personalised the whole site feels. Professionally speaking, if you know what you want, The Job Auction gives you a platform to go and get it.

Think Silicon Completes Ambitious 2.5 Year Plan with the Successful Finalization of the EU Funded GPU-WEAR Project

This worthwhile effort required a multidisciplinary design methodology spanning circuits, architectural, compiler, and API-level power efficient techniques to work in a seamless fashion.”

— Dr. Georgios Keramidas CSO of Think Silicon and GPU-WEAR project lead

PATRAS, GREECE, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Think Silicon, a leader in ultra-low power graphics IP technology, announced the completion of an ambitious 2.5 year plan with the culmination of an array of innovative ultra-low power Graphics-Processing-Unit (GPU) IP-technology, together with a complete ecosystem of development-tools. Key highlights for the company include filing 10 international patents (six granted, four pending) and extending the sales channel in Europe, North America, Taiwan and Japan. The impressive project goals, established in 2015, resulted in numerous exhibits at major trade events such as the International Consumer Electronics Show, Mobile World Congress, Embedded World and executive speaking opportunities at the Synopsys ARC Processor Summit, Linley Processor Conference 2017, HiPEAC 2018, DATE Conference, and many more.

“To reach a meaningful impact-level of ultra-low power consumption, required by Wearable, IoT and Embedded Display devices, represents a technological challenge”, says Dr. Georgios Keramidas CSO of Think Silicon and GPU-WEAR project lead. “This worthwhile effort required a multidisciplinary design methodology spanning circuits, architectural, compiler, and API-level power efficient techniques to work in a seamless fashion. We are very thankful for the support of the European Union’s ‘Horizon 2020’ Research and Innovation Programme.”

During the Horizon 2020 program, Think Silicon achieved a variety of technology achievements including:
● Holistic power reduction techniques
The main objective of the project was to develop holistic power reduction techniques by reducing power not only on ASICs (Chip) level, but also for the entire system (Display device). To achieve this, the company developed and implemented multiple techniques, such as value- memorization, new image/texture/z-buffer compression methods, smart clock gating, power gating, and adaptive backlighting.

● Transparent “display-aware” and “QoS-aware” graphics libraries
One of the biggest challenges that graphics application developers face is the lag of transparency accessing graphics libraries. Think Silicon implemented a “Run-time system” in the GPU driver as well as a QoS (Quality-of-Service) extension to graphics APIs. In addition, the cross-platform middleware GLOVE™ has been developed, which translates at runtime, OpenGL® ES / EGL calls and ESSL shaders to Vulkan® commands and SPIR-V Shader.

● NEMA®|SDK
As an essential toolbox for developers to develop power-aware yet still high-performance software applications for Wearable, IoT and Embedded display devices, NEMA®|SDK is a complete ecosystem of tools providing the utmost access to the GPU hardware. The NEMA®|SDK tool-box is comprised of six tools: NEMA®|GFX-API, NEMA®|GUI-Builder, NEMA®|Bits, NEMA®|PIX-Presso, NEMA®|SHADER-Edit and GLOVE™.

● Heterogeneous GPU
NEMA®|tS (tiny-small) helps to achieve an optimal combination of power-performance load balancing.

● NEMA®|xNN
Because Machine Learning and Deep Neural Networks (DNN) are complexity intensive models that require vast processing power, NEMA®|xNN was developed to address the 1000x gap (in terms of power and/or performance) compared to what competitive solutions offer.

Think Silicon has been recognized by global news outlets including Electronics Weekly, Packt, Microcontroller Tips, Programmable Web, the prestigious John Peddie Research and many more. Additional news about Think Silicon is available online at https://think-silicon.com/category/news/.

HUMN.ai Completes Successful London Fleet Insurance Pilot

By-the-moment pricing saves 20% on insurance costs for highly utilised taxi fleet.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — HUMN.ai, the stealth inshuretech startup developing by-the-moment risk-adjusted insurance pricing for highly utilised vehicles such as rideshare fleets has successfully completed a pilot with a London-based rideshare car leasing fleet.

The Rideshur platform collects real-time streaming telematics data and continuously adjusts the insurance premium cost based on the risk exposure at any given moment.

Rideshur will enable our insurance partners to sell on-demand insurance to fleets with fully utilised assets on a metered basis with the unit price being adjusted in real-time. The platform pricing model is flexible and units can be metered by either time or distance.

A new price is cut every 200 milliseconds and rates are varied depending on the state of the vehicle and the risk associated with the driving style of the driver as well as external conditions such as traffic, weather, road types and speed limits as well as fatigue, distraction and a proprietary "crash map" built by HUMN.ai.

Mark Musson, HUMN.ai CEO said: "We ran an exercise of parallel pricing and proved a 15-20% cost savings even though the vehicles cover very high mileage. This proves our hypothesis that it is possible to develop new pricing models for fleets with vehicles that cover very high mileage and are traditionally rated on that fact alone. HUMN.ai is now focussed on finalising insurance partnerships which are currently in negotiation and look forward to announcing the consortium to back our product shortly."

HUMN.ai is building a new type of insurance for the future mobility market and has developed a real-time risk pricing engine running in a blockchain smart-contract for intensively utilised fleets such as those leasing cars to rideshare drivers. For more information visit: https://www.humn.ai

AutoLoop Wins 2018 Tampa Bay Tech Award for Best Workplace Culture

Besides producing industry-leading automotive software, the company has also created a unique workplace that recognizes and incorporates the value of play

CLEARWATER, FL, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — AutoLoop LLC, the leading provider of auto industry marketing, sales, and service solutions, announced today that the company has received the 2018 “Workplace Culture Program of the Year” award from Tampa Bay Tech, Florida’s largest technology council (previously known as the Tampa Bay Technology Forum).

Presented in Tampa Bay Tech’s annual ceremony on November 9, the award recognizes local area companies that have created exceptional environments in which to work. Whether it’s regularly sponsoring events that contribute to the community or providing enjoyable activities onsite, companies like AutoLoop use a unique blend of creative initiatives designed to inspire, motivate, and reward their employees.

“We believe our culture really sets us apart from other companies,” said Lisa Snyder, Senior Director of Human Resources at AutoLoop. “Our leadership places a huge value on creating a workplace that encourages having fun, as well as being productive. Not only does it let employees know they’re appreciated, it’s also how we develop the great relationships that, in turn, consistently produce outstanding results for our organization.”

Starting with its recently redesigned offices that offer state-of-the-art equipment and furniture, an open floor plan with massive windows, and a 360-degree view of the Gulf, AutoLoop constantly invests in new ways to make work enjoyable for everyone. Its team members, known as “Loopsters,” enjoy a variety of benefits both on- and offsite. In addition to full healthcare coverage, twice-weekly yoga classes, a personal massage therapist, and deep discounts on gym memberships, Loopsters always have premium coffee and complimentary healthy snacks on hand, plus offerings from various visiting food trucks each Wednesday. Every month, they celebrate staff birthdays and work anniversaries with a collection of cakes, goodies, and even a mariachi band. Competitions at the onsite foosball table are a common lunchtime activity, and seeing someone cruise around the office on a scooter isn’t unusual.

The company also hosts numerous social events throughout the year, such as trivia contests at the local watering holes. Chili cook-offs, a huge Thanksgiving feast, the summer bash at Clearwater Beach, movie outings, and Howl-O-Scream festivities at Busch Gardens are regular annual events as well. At Halloween, Loopsters compete in elaborate costume, dessert, and decorating contests. And the yearly Loop Holiday Extravaganza, featuring different themes and spectacular prizes, is legendary among employees.

On “Priday,” or Pride Friday, Loopsters choose a particular color to celebrate and everyone turns out for a company photo—set in a rainbow. Community blood drives and canned food drives, sponsorships of local baseball teams, and even relief funds for natural disasters like the recent hurricanes are also part of the AutoLoop culture. Nor is the fun limited to in-house activities for workers only. Employee families are encouraged to participate in every event as well.

Besides describing what makes their workplace more enjoyable, contenders for Tampa Bay Tech’s annual award also had to explain how their unique workplaces impact the programs or products they generate. For the approximately 415 Loopsters who design, build, illustrate, and sell the company’s best-in-class automotive software, the extraordinary perks create an invaluable team dynamic. In doing so, AutoLoop continually reinforces a culture where the success of each department is integral to the success of all the others.

“We all depend heavily on one another for specific deliverables to accomplish our goals,” said Snyder. “Getting together at a fun party or charity event really helps strengthen those relationships that have to work well day in and day out. And it allows us to better serve our clients—the dealers who depend on our software to make their businesses run more smoothly.”

It’s a mindset that has clearly paid off: AutoLoop has doubled its ranks in just a few years and continues to expand. By consistently investing in its workers, promoting a healthy work-life balance, and simply encouraging good old-fashioned fun, the company has earned not only the Tampa Bay Tech award, but also the dedication of its many Loopsters. Those interested in learning all the ways AutoLoop continually innovates to drive success can call 877-850-2010 or visit AutoLoop.com.

Flitways Technology, Ongoing and Future Plans.

Flitways Technology, Ongoing and Future Plans

Flitways Technology Inc. (FTWS) (OTCMKTS:FTWS)

We remain committed to restoring FLIT operations and bringing the Company back to a fully operational status.”

— Interim Management

WEST PALM BEACH,, FL, USA, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Shareholder Address FlitWays Technology Inc. (OTC Pink: FTWS)

FlitWays Technology Inc. (OTC Pink: FTWS), Interim management is providing this update to its followers, and shareholders regarding many FAQ type questions and FTWS future plans moving forward.

The Company filed an 8K on or about October 15, 2018 https://www.otcmarkets.com/filing/html?id=13008751&guid=zrjMUaTjXSN8s3h That filing explains the current issues the Company is experiencing due to certain sabotage of operations with its ex CEO Tobi Mac Aro.

Shortly, FTWS will file a Q3 and an amended 8k. The amended 8k as per the SEC request and this news release cautions the company followers not to rely upon any of the 2018 financials furnished by the previous Management. Since the software, accounting, and business interruptions or deliberate sabotage stage of Mr Tobi Mac Aro the unique visitors to FLIT has fallen drastically. Currently, we have a team of outside (3rd party) IT professionals from both Germany and India attempting to restore the software and the back office to enable us to resume full operations. In addition to the 2 aforementioned required filings the Company will file an equity stakeholder or a Regulation D filing for the capital infusion received from Emry Capital for the rebuilding or restoration of operations.

Interim management, Daniel Sobolewski said "We remain committed to restoring FLIT operations and bringing the Company back to a fully operational status. We are working to figure out the bankruptcy process, and how this would affect our shareholders. Moving forward, regardless if the IT team can restore the software or not, according to our advisor's Chapter 11 is the less harmful way for the Company to proceed in an ongoing restructuring. Down the road, out of this restructuring and cleaning up the Company will be ready to continue the same operations, to acquire new opportunities and to expand into new markets. At this point we are not ruling out a change of industry or a new direction for the Company post Chapter 11 or otherwise.

Lastly many shareholders are inquiring about Mr. Mac's involvement with FLIT. His involvement moving forward is nil. Regarding rumors of the Karhoo and RCI Banks,(Renault Nissan Alliance), there is none with FLIT that we the interim management are aware of. The interim management strives to remain transparent with its shareholders and the Securities Exchange Commission in order to restore much eroded values and restore the Company operations to some meaningful level."

More updates will follow in a timely fashion.

About the company:

The Company is currently in a restructuring mode due to certain operational events. The reader should read the SEC filings to learn more. FlitWays was a fully integrated with major travel management systems, car dispatch, and global distribution systems worldwide. As a part of the Enterprise Booking Suite, FlitWays was to implement new features, functionalities, and processes to alleviate the burden on corporations scheduling ground transportation.

Important items that Uber and Lyft drivers need to keep handy in their personal vehicles or TLC car leasing or rentals”

— Friendly, www.FriendlyTLC.com

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is no feeling for an Uber or Lyft driver like being miles from home and realizing that you have left behind an important item. Over the course of your career when driving a personal vehicle or TLC leasing or rental, you’ll discover that having certain items with you will become most valuable when on the road.

What follows is a short list of items that you’ll find necessary when driving for Uber or Lyft. Naturally, you should include the items that are recommended by Uber and Lyft, including a first-aid kit. Be sure that you keep the following items handy and check for them before you leave for your first rideshare.

Car Clean-Up Kit

This is a simple, inexpensive kit that contains what you need to keep your car’s interior in good shape. The items in your kit should include the following:

– Paper Towels or Napkins
– Sanitary Wipes: To clean up the interior quickly
– Air Freshener
– Barf Bag: This may help avoid a messy clean-up situation
– Cloth Towel and Cleaner for Bigger Messes

Passenger Comforts

Keep a small bag or cooler that contains water, mints, or gum that helps passengers overcome any car sickness. The last thing you want is having to clean up your vehicle over something that might’ve been prevented.

Hands-Free Mount

Keeping your smartphone on a hands-free mount, especially with a GPS, increases safety considerably as your eyes will stay on the road. Every driver should keep a hands-free mount to help avoid distractions.

Mileage Log

Because your mileage may mean write offs, you’ll want to keep track of your miles diligently. You can do this with an app on your phone or just keep a pen and paper handy. By subtracting your mileage from your gross income, you can save on your taxes.

Pen and Paper

Keeping track of your miles on pen and paper has the added benefit of keeping a daily log of passengers you pick up and drop off. By keeping track of when and where you offer a rideshare, along with any stops you make, you can create an accurate picture of each working day.

Music

For longer trips, offer your passengers the opportunity to play their own music during the ride. You can provide headphones or devices that let them choose what they want to hear.

Phone Charging Block

If you want to score extra points, have a charging block handy so your passengers can recharge their phones. Just make sure that the charging block can handle both Android and iPhones.

In the end, your TLC car for rent should have these items available. The last thing you want is to find yourself looking for one or more of these items when needed. This makes driving your personal vehicle or TLC car leasing so much easier.

Hickey Law Firm Announces $4.5 Million Verdict in Car Crash Survivor Action

Attorney John H. “Jack” Hickey

The verdict stands, and the insurance company was required to pay the verdict amount plus post judgment interest for a total of $5,087,699.93

This may not be the largest verdict in the world. But it is the largest verdict in the world for an 89-year-old woman who was involved in a car crash and died 4 1/2 years later of unrelated causes.”

— Jack Hickey

MIAMI, FLORIDA, US, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Florida’s Third District Court of Appeal on September 5, 2018 entered a PCA (per curiam affirmance) of the trial court’s order. That court on October 17, 2018 denied Defendant’s Motion for entry of an option making the PCA final. The verdict stands, and the insurance company was required to pay the verdict amount plus post judgment interest for a total of $5,087,699.93

Miami attorney Jack Hickey said: “This may not be the largest verdict in the world. But it is the largest verdict in the world for an 89-year-old woman who was involved in a car crash and died 4 1/2 years later of unrelated causes. The case then became a “survivor action” which is for the pain and suffering of a woman who never set foot in the courtroom and whose deposition was not taken. She was brought to life in the courtroom through the photos of Maria “the energizer bunny” before the crash, the medical records, and the testimony of Maria’s daughter and granddaughter. I am proud of the result and happy for my clients.”

Judge Michael Hanzman’s 41 Page order denying defendant’s post-trial motions for remittitur (asking the judge to reduce the verdict) and for new trial (asking for a do-over) said:

“As one court aptly noted, deciding an amount of damages to award for pain and suffering is an “attempt to measure that which is immeasurable…” Food Fair Stores, Inc. v. Morgan, 338 So. 2d 89, 92 (Fla. 2d DCA 1976). For this reason a jury’s award of such damages should be given even greater deference. See, e.g. Berger v. Philip Morris USA, Inc., 3:09 – CV-14157, 2016 WL 2620134, fn. 2 (M.D. Fla. May 5, 2016) (“where damages for pain and suffering are involved” court should be “deferential to ‘the enlightened conscience of the jury’ because these kinds of damages are ‘even further removed from exact calculation and certain measurement.’”);”

Vincentric Announces 2019 Best CPO Value in America™ Awards: Ford, Toyota, and Audi Lead the Winners List

Ford, Lincoln, Toyota, Audi, Honda, and Ram won awards as top brands. 16 manufacturers earned model-level awards.

SCOTTSDALE, AZ, USA, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The sixth annual Vincentric Best Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) Value in America™ Awards were announced today with Ford and Toyota sharing the top spot as both brands earned six model-level awards. Audi was close behind with five award winning CPO vehicles.

This strong performance earned Ford Vans the Best CPO Value brand award for the third consecutive year, while for the second year in a row Toyota took the Best CPO Value brand award for Passenger Cars and Audi repeated as the brand award winner for Best CPO Value Luxury Cars. Other brand winners were Honda, which was awarded Best CPO Value in the SUV/Crossover category, Lincoln, which earned the Best CPO Value Luxury SUV/Crossovers brand award for the third consecutive year, and Ram which earned the Best CPO Value Truck brand award.

Other brands with multiple model level awards were Hyundai, BMW, Chevrolet, and Lexus, while Cadillac, Volvo, Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti, Subaru, and Land Rover each had one model-level winner.

“Certified Pre-Owned vehicles continue to have high demand due to their strong warranties and lower transaction prices relative to new vehicles,” said Vincentric President, David Wurster. “The data-driven Vincentric Certified Pre-Owned awards can help buyers identify which of the many CPO vehicles in the market provide the best value.”

To determine the 2019 Vincentric Best CPO Value in America™ award winners, Vincentric conducted a statistical analysis to reveal which vehicles had lower than expected ownership costs given their market segment and price. Vincentric analyzed over 15,000 vehicle configurations using eight cost factors: depreciation, fees and taxes, financing, fuel, insurance, maintenance, opportunity cost, and repairs. The costs were measured after incorporating the specific CPO warranty offered by the manufacturer while also applying mileage requirements necessary to be authorized as an OEM CPO vehicle. Each CPO vehicle was evaluated in all 50 states plus Washington DC, with the assumption that they will be driven 15,000 miles annually over five years.

Further information regarding the 2019 Vincentric Best CPO Value in America™ Awards and the Vincentric methodology is available at www.vincentric.com.

Precision ultrasonic cleaning for the Military – Using flammable solvent in harsh climates

The 3-stage in-line system designed and manufactured by Layton was well able to meet all the specialist criteria.

STOKE-ON-TRENT, STAFFORDSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, November 13, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A world-renowned manufacturer of military aircraft required cleaning equipment for overhauling components during routine maintenance.

Military aircraft users have specialist requirements in that they need to carry out precision cleaning using flammable solvents together with ultrasonic agitation and heat soaking of various components during scheduled servicing. This servicing needs to take place at various worldwide locations including some extremely harsh climates.

The preferred batch cleaning system needed to be able to utilise a flammable solvent in a controlled manner and cope with the harsh climates. The systems needed to be robust, easily maintainable and have an extended warranty.
As they would be operating in countries with hot climates there was a necessity to have the fluid chilled, to maintain the temperature below the flash point, using cooling coils. A safety cut-out was in use continually should the fluid or ambient temperature rise above 40 deg C.

Having spent some considerable time selecting suitable vendors, they nominated Layton Technologies as their vendor of choice. The 3-stage in-line system designed and manufactured by Layton was well able to meet all the specialist criteria.

The system included chilled plates and an external chiller unit to ensure that the temperature requirements were always observed.
The tanks were heavily insulated to make sure that the temperatures remained at the required level with minimal power consumption. In addition, each tank had in-line particle filtration and ultrasonic agitation to provide excellent and repeatable cleaning of the components. Two of the tanks were heated to 85 deg C and in combination with the flammable fluid tank could remove limescale and carbon from the parts. Fluid level detectors were included in all tanks along with automated fill and drain capabilities.

A machine mounted control panel was used to display and control process times, temperatures and fluid levels and to provide warnings to the operators should any fall outside the pre-set parameters.
Each of the systems manufactured was required to be compatible with the electricity supply for the country of installation and this was done with ease by Layton’s team of designers and specialist procurement staff.
