    UltimateBlackbox Mon 03 Aug 2020 10:25

    Business schools partnering with companies to provide what those companies are looking for in an employee is foundational to the graduate business education model. It’s perfectly natural, too, that schools located in regions heavily populated with a certain type of industry would cater to that industry. Now, one Midwestern university is taking such partnerships another step. Indiana University announced July 28 that it has signed a pact with consulting and IT giant Infosys to offer the Bangalore, India-based company’s U.S.-based employees access to a huge slate of graduate and undergraduate degree programs — including the Kelley School of Business’s top-ranked online MBA, Kelley Direct Online.

    Infosys moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, about 50 miles from IU, in 2018. IU has long had partnerships with Indianapolis- and Bloomington-based corporations to develop specific programs or provide executive training. But this deal is on another level altogether, particularly...

    Effective immediately, Webasto, the specialist in heating and air conditioning systems, is offering HEPA air filtration systems for rapid and simple retrofitting. The “HFT 300” and “HFT 600” filtration systems can be retrofitted to all vehicle interiors, for example ambulances, buses and streetcars. They are capable of filtering particles smaller than 0.3 micrometers – including airborne viruses, bacteria, aerosols and dust – from five to ten cubic meters of air per minute. They therefore comply with the requirements of HEPA filter class H14 and the guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ecdc). The degree of purification corresponds to 99.995 percent. In rescue vehicles the filters, used in conjunction with personal protective equipment, significantly reduce the risk of infection of emergency medical service operators and patients.

In the power segment, Torrent Power has significantly outperformed its peers in the last couple of years. It remained almost immune to selling pressure seen in the sector while the stock tested its highest levels since 2010 last month. We believe the recent declines in the stock are a buying opportunity as it is likely to move towards its life-time highs.On the F&O front, the open interest in the stock has remained lower and it did not witness any major accumulation after the decline seen in February and March. The OI in the stock was close to 2 million shares in early March and the current OI is no different at current levels while stock has moved back to its highs....

  • Summer's Unique Sights at Cannon Beach, a Changing Oregon Coast - Oregon Coast Beach Connection Link
    UltimateBlackbox Mon 27 Jul 2020 20:23

    (Cannon Beach, Oregon) – Every summer, much of the Oregon coast gets shifted around, sometimes drastically. Rising sand levels do gobs of unique things, creating sometimes remarkable sights when compared to other times you’ve visited. Certainly there are distinctive aspects that pop into existence, and Cannon Beach has its own brand of wild surprises and new means of exploration.

    Why does this happen? Summer simply drops off more sand because of calmer wave conditions. Sand builds up on the beaches and just offshore, creating great sand bars that keep the tide at bay and imitates low tides. But it’s not.

    To illustrate all this, here’s a glimpse of extraordinary new looks these beaches have acquired in past summers. Here’s what to look out for.

    At the top: the very southern edges of Cannon Beach, down well beyond the Tolovana area, where the streets turn into names of other Oregon locales. The rock structure you see in the distance is a prime example of...
