Michael Coppola Featured in Article on How to Comply with AA and 2FA Requirements in Criminal Justice Field

NEW PORT COST, CA, USA, March 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Michael Coppola, a top internet security expert, was recently featured in article highlighting how organizations that maintain criminal justice information can comply with the latest advanced authentication (AA) and two-factor authentication (2FA) standards.

The recent article is the latest in a blog series on how managers of criminal justice data can protect their information online. This particular article calls attention to AA and 2FA. AA is a system that uses something a person knows and something he or she has to ensure the security of information. Meanwhile, 2FA is a system that requires two forms of ID to access information, according to Coppola.

In the article, Coppola explains that AA is required to access criminal justice information in a couple of situations. First, if users’ laptops’ or mobile devices’ applications/software are able to access criminal justice data, then the software requires AA. Second, if criminal justice data reside in laptops or mobile devices, these devices require AA as well as full-disk encryption.

Coppola also explains in the article the various 2FA options available to mangers of criminal justice data. For instance, users can have one-time passcodes sent as text messages or through email. Another option involves having external USB devices generate codes for users. In some cases, the device being utilized will produce a code or number for every time it is used.

According to Michael Coppola, individuals who manage criminal justice information should carefully evaluate their 2FA options to determine which one would work best for their unique situations. For instance, those who rely on external USB devices should be prepared to replace the devices’ batteries over time. In addition, a user who relies on a third party to handle their 2FA should be prepared to cover the related service costs. Either way, transactions must occur and codes must be produced for users to comply with today’s 2FA requirements in the criminal justice field.

Artificial Intelligence – Is It Just a Load of Hot AIr?

Fraud chief investigates if AI in the language industry is driving digital transformation or still in the stone age

Companies on the digital transformation journey will find the powerful algorithms in Guildhawk Aided machine translation solution extremely helpful”

— David Clarke, Head of Multilingual Due Diligence Services, Guildhawk

LONDON, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, February 28, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — From the factory floor to the C-suite, over the last year, the subject of Artificial Intelligence for Digital transformation (AI for DX) has seemed completely inescapable along with the global response to the COVID 19 pandemic that is. The language and technology sector is certainly no exception to the AI digital transformation trend, with new AI platforms, products and all-encompassing “solutions” popping up and promising to totally change the game. It seems AI is the great saviour of the modern business – the answer to all of the current market’s needs in terms of cost efficiencies, time savings, and everyone’s New Year’s resolution to “work smarter”.

But how good is AI in the translation industry? Can translation software really drive digital transformation, especially in those industries very much stapled to the paper rich analogue world?

Former police fraud squad chief and Guildhawk director of Integrity Services David Clarke did some investing and found that, if you scratch beneath the surface, you don’t need to be an expert to see there’s often not much substance to what is being offered. The “game-changing” AI platform turns out to be a futuristic interface plastered on top of a traditional service; the AI’s “efficiencies” actually come from linguists being paid a pittance for higher-volume, lower-quality work, and so on.

However, he also found lots of clues and evidence of new software technology that is changing the rules of the translation game and being used to help companies in a range of industry sectors to transform and best of all, win new business deals.

Guildhawk is a privately held, woman owned technology and language business established in 2001 by entrepreneur Jurga Zilinskiene MBE and has become a world leader in the sector. The company pioneered Guidlhawk Aided an AI powered machine translation tool that produces exceptional quality results. The software was released to customers during the COVID-19 lockdown.

Hong Kong’s Coronavirus-Related Air Crew Quarantines are Inconsistent for US Pilots and Crew

Poses an Ongoing Risk to US Air Carrier Pilots and Crew by Forcing “Close Contact” Crews to Quarantine Upon Arrival at a Government Quarantine Camp

Hong Kong’s refusal to honor its commitment to the U.S. Government poses an ongoing health-related risk to the working conditions of U.S. air carrier pilots and crew.”

— Air Line Pilots Association, International

UNITED STATES, February 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — ALPA pilots have worked stoically throughout the pandemic to ensure the vital flow of goods and people, including, recently, global distribution of the vaccine itself. It is important that all governments cooperate to the maximum extent possible to ensure the safety of flight crews, and minimize intrusion on the liberty of personnel operating international flights.

Unfortunately, Hong Kong’s actions with respect to coronavirus-related air crew quarantines are inconsistent with an understanding with the US and pose an ongoing risk to US air carrier pilots and crew by forcing “close contact” crews to quarantine upon arrival at a government quarantine camp. Nonstop flights from the US involve crew layovers, but Hong Kong’s actions render nonstops untenable, putting US carriers at an arbitrary, unfair disadvantage.

These actions violate the US-Hong Kong Air Service Agreement. The implementation of new quarantine rules may worsen Hong Kong’s treatment of US air crew relative to other countries’ air crews. For the reasons discussed herein, we respectfully request that the Department limit to a period of 179 days American’s exemption request to continue codesharing with Cathay, Hong Kong’s major airline, until the Hong Kong government rectifies its treatment of US pilots and crew. By granting short term approval, the Department will have the opportunity to regularly revisit Hong Kong’s progress and compliance. Alternatively, on behalf of all of ALPA’s pilot members, we request that DOT exercise its Part 213 authority to achieve the same result.

In another arbitrary blow to U.S. carriers, the rules also include a troubling and curious carve-out for Hong Kong-based all-cargo operations to and from Anchorage, Alaska, if the crew remain in a sterile “closed-loop.” It appears that no U.S. carrier can make practical use of this exception, even those with Anchorage bases, because U.S. crews are exposed to the local Anchorage population.

This group of tiny load cells, comprised of the MLC, SLB, THA, and THD Series, offer force measurement ranges from 25 to 50,000 pounds.

TEMECULA, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Transducer Techniques offers a group of highly accurate small load cells and force sensors. The MLC Series compression only load columns are offered in several ranges from 2,000 pounds to 30,000 pounds. The SLB Series compression only miniature load button load cells range from 25 pounds to 1,000 pounds, and the THA through THD Series compression only thru-hole load cells range from 50 pounds to 50,000 pounds. The accuracy specifications for Linearity, Hysteresis, and Repeatability are consistent with highly accurate strain gage based load cells.

https://www.transducertechniques.com

Transducer Techniques, established in 1979, designs and manufactures a complete line of load cells, torque sensors, special purpose transducers and related instrumentation. Transducer Techniques load cells are uniquely designed for weight and force measurement in such diversified applications as process control and factory automation. Other applications exist in numerous fields of science and industry for our load cells. All transducer sensing elements incorporate bonded foil strain gauges, wired in a full Wheatstone bridge configuration.

Technology
Load cells are electro-mechanical transducers that translate force or weight into voltage. This change in voltage produces a signal in the read-out instrumentation, a repeatable deflection or indication that can be calibrated directly in terms of the load applied to the load cell.

Construction
Construction of the load cell utilizes all the advantages of bonded foil strain gauges. Sealed within the load cell are sets of matched strain gauges bonded to a high strength element, machined to close tolerances. The strain gauges are electrically connected to form a balanced Wheatstone bridge and additional compensation resistors are added to the circuit for maintaining the accuracy of the bridge over a wide temperature range.

Operation
The principle of operation depends upon the deflection of the strain gauge filament, creating a change in its resistance, thereby unbalancing the bridge circuit. As a result, for a given input voltage, the output voltage of the bridge varies proportionally with the load and the change can be read on appropriate instrumentation.

Quality
When completed, each load cell is individually tested and calibrated. Each cell must meet or exceed rigid electrical and mechanical performance tests before it is released for service. Also, every cell is proof tested to its full rated capacity, and in most instances, to over its rated capacity.

Attributes
An important asset of our load cells is their extremely small deflection. The maximum deflection of standard cells does not exceed .012" at full load. This plus the fact that these load cells contain no moving parts opens unlimited application fields. The inherent compactness of the load cells minimizes installation problems.

The frequency response characteristics of our load cells are exceptionally good. The relatively low mass, and the small deflection under load, result in a high-frequency response which emphasizes the use of the load cells in many services where other transducers cannot perform.

Only strain gauges of the highest quality are installed and configured by technicians who have undergone our extensive training program targeting craftsmanship and attention to detail. To the end-user, this means a quality product. All Load Cells / Force Sensors and Torque Sensors are supplied with a Calibration Certificate traceable to NIST.

CREAN Inc. celebrates historic Mars Rover ‘seven minutes of terror’ footage

The EDL camera system worked perfectly—you can clearly see all the important EDL sequences in color on the stunning video that NASA released.”

— Dave Sherry, Mechanical Engineer at CREAN, Inc.

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Aerospace engineering and Smart Factory solutions consulting firm CREAN, Inc. celebrates the successful recording of NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover landing. The landing occurred on February 18, 2021 in Mars' Jezero Crater. This recorded landing marks the first high-definition footage of atmospheric entry, descent and landing on another planet.

As a long-time supplier to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), CREAN welcomed the opportunity to participate in this historic launch. The data collected by the video will provide critical information for future missions and design features.

CREAN, Inc. Mechanical Engineer Dave Sherry supported the testing at NASA’s JPL prior to launch. Sherry’s participation included work on PIXL and SHERLOC (two types of spectrometer systems that can spot biosignatures) as well as a set of EDL cameras, microphone and recording system. The system successfully recorded the “7 Minutes of Terror” that take the vehicle through aerobraking, parachute descent and then the powered descent with the rover on a “sky crane.”

“We always hope for the best and expect success on the NASA robotic missions because of JPL’s great track record, but I was still dumbfounded by the success of the Perseverance landing on Mars,” Sherry said. “The EDL camera system worked perfectly—you can clearly see all the important EDL sequences in color on the stunning video that NASA released.”

Materials & Processes (M&P) Engineering expert and former Boeing Associate Technical Fellow, Lynn Long, was present at JPL to witness the historic landing footage. Long was leading the team at JPL that upgraded the white thermal paint on the rover to a less brittle formulation compared to prior missions.

“It was absolutely thrilling to be at JPL when this event happened and to see the telemetry feed first-hand,” Long said.

Additional team members include former Boeing Chief Engineer and subject matter expert on spacecraft payloads and antennas, Rick Roberti, who supported the frequency synthesizing landing radar that helped Perseverance make the extraordinary and safe landing; and Bob Burns, former Boeing technologist and leader with expertise in spacecraft structure, mechanisms, and deployable structures, who, among other projects, helped to repair a last-minute, slight structural issue on the rover. Burns also observed the rover vibration test at JPL’s much heralded Environmental Test Laboratories (ETL).

Velos Rotors- SPH Engineering, partnership augments the first single rotor helicopter taking off, surveying

Velos UAV helicopter is the first single rotor helicopter supported by UgCS software for photogrammetry and LiDAR drone surveying missions.

WILMINGTON, DELAWARE, USA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — SPH Engineering announced that the Velos UAV helicopter has passed field tests to become the first single rotor helicopter supported by UgCS software. UgCS now enables Velos helicopter professionals to use Velos for photogrammetry and LiDAR drone surveying missions.

UgCS is now able to support the twin engine telemetry providing input for a UAV.

The newly created Telemetry Viewer can handle extensive telemetry from such complex drones. This allows for optimal flying of the Velos helicopter, the safest UAV in its class, with a fully redundant twin-motor design and double key components. UgCS makes piloting easier and safer, allowing for the control and monitoring of one or multiple Velos helicopters on a single mission in both single and multi-operator modes.

The field tests were initiated and conducted by Irish GeoInspect, the first company to use UgCS with its Velos helicopter. The new solution allows professionals to fine-tune projects, resulting in maximum performance and very high usability. One of the projects was a fully autonomous test flight with UgCS.

Bart Zondag, GeoInspect Founder, explains: “GeoInspect has been performing LiDAR surveys successfully with UgCS for many years. Having started with the M600 model, UgCS is now used to support single rotor UAVs. We have already delivered a Velos V2 with UgCS to one of our customers to the EU Nordics to perform LiDAR forestry surveys”.

Learn more about the solution by joining our free Zoom webinar on March 4, 2021.

Governments and Corporations are Responsible for the Death of Small Business

No More Excuses: Small Business Needs Support, Not Lockdowns and Unfair Restrictions

When we complain about a problem and do nothing, we are worst than the problem itself. Canada has always been a country that defined itself on social responsibility. That is what Canadians do!”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How many small businesses throughout Canada have struggled and closed while many large corporations have flourished and taken bonuses for themselves? Bonuses they have been able to afford because they are subsidizing employee wages and expenses with government contribution.

How many small businesses have been shut down due to health concerns without any data that suggests these same businesses are a greater risk than the large box stores? Why is small business on lockdown while other large essential corporations have been able to operate with almost no restrictions?

When will all business have equal rights?

When will a small business that can operate safely have the same privileged rights of the large corporations and be permitted to stay open?

The bottom line on this entire argument is that classifications of essential and non-essential are discriminatory to small businesses. Most small businesses have made greater efforts to protect their customers than many of the “essential” companies that have been allowed to operate freely with minimal restrictions. Big box stores that often violate capacity and social distancing limits and have only recently been investigated for violations.

The government has made health determinations with little logic, data, or explanation on why retail businesses outside of box stores are unfairly restricted to less capacity.

After two lockdowns and still no plan, there has been no discussion regarding fair treatment for small business. Everyone knows that small businesses are working from an unfair position. Many small business owners have had to take government loans to survive. Current data released by CFIB states that small business owes more than $135 billion. This amount requires repayment to the very government that is locking them down after adjustments they have made to their businesses to become compliant to guidelines that are ambiguous. The data from various departments are conflicting and inaccurate.

It is time for the government to balance the scale. Large corporations should be in partnership with small business, not sending business out of Canada. Businesses that have been unfairly treated deserve greater tax breaks and loan forgiveness based on the financial struggles that have been exacerbated by the continued mismanagement of poorly thought-out restrictions.

SmAll Business is Essential is an initiative created by Edward Henry Company and Social Distance Management. Our goal and function is to advocate on behalf of suffering small business due to the lack of support and unfair treatment from various government restrictions. The interest expressed by many small businesses throughout Canada, and even the United States for SmAll Business is Essential to help struggling small businesses has evolved to becoming more than a cause. It is now become an organization that will be on the front lines to fight for the rights of small businesses.

It is time for Canadians to be socially responsible and ensure that fairness is included in the metrics that we are using when governing through these difficult times. It is time to give small business support, and allow them the same rights that have been allotted to large corporations for over a year.

The restrictions put on businesses should reflect the health and safety threat, the business’ ability to manage their space and people, and the quantified rate/metric of spread in a specific region.

We are currently raising finances for businesses that are complying with health and safety recommendations and guidelines to stay open. We are advocating to keep business in Canada and to support small business. Edward Henry Company will be donating 50% of the proceeds from it’s recent new book release Cut The Bullsh*T to SmAll Business is Essential of Canada. Small businesses across Canada are done paying the price. Small businesses are going to unite and stand up to government and big business, because SmAll Business is Essential.
