Dialog Services adopts Ultimus workflow automation software

Before implementing the Ultimus BPM Suite, Dialog Services had to handle large volumes of new mandates on scanned paper that were difficult to manage and validate. Each charity with which they worked had its own way of keying, storing, managing, and tracking the data, making it difficult to maintain data quality in a common data repository.

The Leap: Why 13 students spent spring break in the concrete jungle

first_imgThe Leap: Staying on campus during Easter? We’ve got you covered printSenior BFA Acting major Carroll Herring sat in a small room on the fourteenth floor of a building in the middle of New York City for one of the most important moments of her life.Herring was waiting her turn to perform in front of four high-profile agents, whose feedback could determine the direction of her acting career.“I was trying to play it cool and stay focused,” said Herring. “But, yeah, I was quite nervous.”Herring is one of 13 senior BFA performance majors who traveled to New York over spring break for the TCU Theatre Senior Showcase 2018. The group had spent the past couple of days in various acting workshops, leading up to three separate showcases for agents and casting directors.Two of the showcases later that evening were open – meaning anyone could attend.  However, the first showcase was closed, and the seniors would perform in pairs in front of a small, private audience of four agents representing large casting agencies in New York.After being called, Herring and her partner, Paige Poe, stood up and walked down the short hallway connecting the waiting room to the audition room.The room was small, with a few large windows facing the busy street. Two men and women sat behind two tables at the far end of the room.“I had a slight advantage since I didn’t go first,” said Herring. “I sat on a stool facing away as Paige performed her monologue and dance and tried to concentrate on my breathing.”Then came Herring’s turn.Taking a deep breath, she dived into her solo, “Changing My Major” from “Fun Home.”Finishing, she immediately jumped into a two-person scene with Poe from the TV show, “Orange is the New Black.” According to Herring, the scene went smoothly, albeit maybe a little fast.“I think all my nerves and excitement transferred into me speeding through my performance,” said Herring. “Which isn’t necessarily bad just a little frustrating.”The scene ended, and Poe moved back to her spot on the stool.With her solo song and partner scene finished, Herring took another deep breath to get into character for her final performance: a monologue from “Extremities,” by William Mastrosimone. She said her monologue contrasted her other pieces by having a darker and more upsetting tone.According to Herring, her character was trying to convince her roommates they needed to kill and bury her rapist, who was stalking the three of them.Poe joined Herring in the middle room as she finished her monologue to receive personal feedback on their individual performances.“It’s helpful because, yes, you are auditioning for them, but you also get this constructive feedback on what you need to work on or improve on,” Herring said.She said the agents were polite and inquisitive as they gave encouraging feedback.“It’s slightly frustrating because the only critiques they gave were things I was already aware of and trying to correct,” Herring said. “Which is on me as an actor.”She said they also told her she was prettier in person than in her headshot.“Honestly, it could have been the other way around so you won’t see me complaining,” Herring said.The agents gave their dismissal, and the duo said their thanks and walked out of the room.The entire audition had lasted six minutes.The group outside the closed showcase audition room. (Photo courtesy Carroll Herring.)The day ended with two more open showcases, followed by a cabaret with TCU alumni. Herring said the open showcases were a huge success, with an average of 28 agents attending each.As the day came to a close, the group’s stage manager contacted all the members who received interviews or callbacks in response to their performances.Herring was invited to a callback, an interview and received six separate approvals for her resume to go on file at various agencies. One of the casting directors who led one of the workshops also asked her to contact him when she relocated to New York.As for her next steps, Herring plans to move to New York City in early June after graduation. She said her immediate goal is to reach out to the various contacts she made during the trip and get a feel for the industry.“It was by far the most successful showcase TCU has ever had,” said Herring.

Experts: Government Shouldn’t Insure Against Natural Disasters

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Experts: Government Shouldn’t Insure Against Natural Disasters Tagged with: climate change Housing Policy National Flood Insurance Program Natural Disasters Property Loss Insurance Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago More frequent and more severe natural disasters pose an increasing threat to communities across the nation, but a majority of experts do not support mandatory or government-sponsored insurance in high-risk areas. Zillow previously predicted natural disasters will affect a record number of homes this year, and by 2050, more than 386,000 homes worth more than $200 billion “are at risk of permanent inundation or chronic flooding.” Instead of scaling back on construction in threatened areas, Zillow detected “homes are still being built at striking rates in areas that face high risks of future flooding.” As Congress grapples with this challenge, attempting to determine the future of the National Flood Insurance Program, Zillow conducted its own survey on how the government should respond to the threat natural disasters pose to homes across the nation. Fewer than one-fifth of the 100 real estate experts and economists surveyed agree that the government should subsidize or sponsor property-loss insurance, and fewer than half say the government should require such insurance in areas at high risk of natural disaster. Sixty-eight percent of experts said the government should not subsidize or underwrite property-loss insurance. Instead, experts favor “preemptive measures,” according to Zillow. For example, experts tended to support stricter building codes with “state-of-the-art resilience standards” as well as full construction moratoriums in high-risk areas. Some also favor infrastructure investments, such as seawalls or jetties. Also, close to half, about 47 percent, of experts agreed that homeowners who cannot obtain or afford insurance should relocate to lower-risk, more affordable areas. Zillow sponsored the survey as part of its Zillow Home Price Expectations Survey, which is conducted by Pulsenomics. In terms of home prices, experts predict home price appreciation of 4.3 percent in the next year, as of the first quarter, which is up from a prediction of 3.8 percent in the previous quarter. The increase could be the result of sliding mortgage rates, according to Terry Loebs, Founder of Pulsenomics.Looking further into the future, Loebs said, “The longer-term outlook continues to be mixed and reflect uncertainties about housing supply, first-time homebuyer capacity, and other lingering market risks.” In fact, at the high end, one group of experts predicted 28.3 percent price growth, while the group predicting the lowest price appreciation predict just 6.6 percent appreciation.

Tundra plants protect the soil surface from UV

first_imgIn the Arctic, seasonal ozone depletion is resulting in periods of enhanced UV-B radiation at ground level while regional climate change is associated with increasing temperatures. These changes are likely to alter plant distribution, biodiversity and morphology, which may have knock-on effects for microbially driven biogeochemical cycling and other soil processes. Our study examined the transmission of solar UV radiation through arctic tundra plants using a portable UV radiometer and the DLR-biofilm biological UV dosimeter. A strong negative correlation was found between vegetation cover and UV transmission to the soil surface. Penetration of UV to the soil beneath tundra plants varied depending upon plant morphology, being greater through low creeping plants than cushion plants, grasses or mosses. UV transmission to the soil surface beyond the foliage edge also varied with plant morphology and the presence of flowers.last_img read more

HMAS Parramatta Secures Middle East Area of Operation

first_img View post tag: HMAS For many, filling up the tank at their local petrol station would have no connection to the Royal Australian Navy. Most Australians would not realise that some of the goods they purchase at the supermarket and the fuel they consume has been provided safe passage to our shores by Australian sailors deployed to the Middle East Area of Operation (MEAO).The Royal Australian Navy ANZAC frigate HMAS Parramatta is currently on her fourth rotation to the MEAO as part of Operation Slipper and is the 27th Royal Australian Navy ship to deploy since 2001. HMAS Parramatta is captained by Commander Guy Blackburn and is deployed to the MEAO as part of the Australian contribution to the Combined Maritime Forces, working under various United Nations Security Council Resolutions to provide maritime security and counter terrorism support in the Gulf and Horn of Africa region and as part of the international commitment to counter piracy in the Gulf of Aden.Just 2 months into a 6 month deployment, HMAS Parramatta has conducted maritime security operations in the Gulf Region and the Horn of Africa, conducted counter-piracy and anti-smuggling operations in the Gulf of Aden and supported a number of counter terrorism activities.The 191 strong crew celebrated Christmas in the Gulf of Aden, where spirits were high after receiving Christmas gifts and well wishes from loved ones in Australia. However celebrations were brief as, even on Christmas Day and throughout the holiday period, operations did not cease and the crew remained vigilant to their task of providing security to the strategic waterways in the Gulf of Aden and the Horn of Africa region.Commander Guy Blackburn described the importance of HMAS Parramatta’s mission to Australian households.“HMAS Parramatta is up in the Middle East providing maritime security operations and maritime interception,” he said.“Simply put, this means we are up in the Middle East keeping the ‘sea lanes, free lanes’. We’re making sure that all the mariners and the trade of the world can get through safely, so that everybody at home can get all their goods and that all the merchant mariners are kept safe,” said CMDR Blackburn.The HMAS Parramatta left Sydney in late September and now, almost halfway through its deployment, is close to clocking up 15000 nautical miles.“The deployment so far has been very rewarding, everybody enjoys doing active service, this is what we train for and it’s the pinnacle of our careers to be able to be up here , doing our job at sea,”.Whilst it is never easy to be apart from families and friends, especially over Christmas time, the crew of HMAS Parramatta remain firmly focused on the importance of maintaining security throughout the strategic waterways of the world and the Straits of Hormuz, ensuring that millions of barrels of oil are transported through those sea lanes.“This is a very important task that we are doing,” added Blackburn.Leading Seaman Dwayne Cocks, an aircraft controller on the HMAS Parramatta describes this deployment as a career highlight.“The most rewarding part to me is controlling foreign military aircraft and coalition aircraft around the sky as the aircraft controller. Under the direction of the Operations Officer, we all work together to achieve a specific aim,” he said.HMAS Parramatta will handover to HMAS Melbourne in March 2012 before returning home to Sydney for a much deserved break.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , January 06, 2012; View post tag: Area HMAS Parramatta Secures Middle East Area of Operation View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Middle View post tag: Parramatta Back to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Parramatta Secures Middle East Area of Operation View post tag: secures View post tag: Navy January 6, 2012 View post tag: Naval Share this article View post tag: East View post tag: operationlast_img read more
