Singapore Opens T4 A New, High-tech Airport TerminalPTI | 31-10-2017 01:19 pmSingapore's Changi Airport opened a cutting-edge terminal on Tuesday with a fully automated check-in system including facial scanning and computerised baggage drop points, but some passengers struggled with the new technology.Terminal 4, built at a cost of Sgd $985 million (US$723 million), will have an annual capacity of 16 million people and is aimed at coping with an expected increase in passenger numbers through one of Asia's top travel hubs.It is packed with new technology, meaning passengers should in theory be able to check in and board without having to talk to airport staff.On its first day of operations, more than 100 passengers arrived in the morning to take the inaugural service out — a Cathay Pacific flight to Hong Kong.But not everyone managed to get to grips with the self check-in machines, forcing travellers to use counters manned by airport staff instead."I think it'll take a while for people and systems to get used to it," Loh K Ling, who tried to use two self-service machines before giving up and going to a manned counter, according to agencies.

“I’ll never forget the sound. The sound of metal crunching,” says George Larson, a passenger on Indian Airlines Flight 440 from Chennai (Madras) to New Delhi in 1973. It was 22:30 – pitch black outside. A storm was raging, and the plane was flying low. The rear end slammed into the ground first. Larson was thrown from his seat. Meanwhile, the plane kept moving. Electric cables sparked and fellow passengers screamed as the fuselage began to split in half. The next thing Larson knew he was awake, lying on his back on some wreckage. He tried to move his legs, but he was stuck. Soon there was an explosion as the heat ignited fuel tanks by the wings. Source: BBC - Future - What not to do in a disaster

At this critical juncture in the conflict in the Syrian city of Aleppo, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) today expressed outrage over the unremitting violence directed against civilians and the unresponsiveness of those who can stop it.MSF called on all warring parties to abide by their obligation to protect civilians in both the besieged areas and in areas newly taken over by the Syrian government.All negotiations to secure access by the United Nations (UN) and other groups—including MSF—to provide humanitarian assistance in the besieged areas of eastern Aleppo have failed. In most cases, people were not provided the chance to flee.It has also proven impossible to evacuate patients, resupply hospitals, and provide much needed aid to those who remain trapped. All parties concerned were and are responsible for this failure, MSF said. Source: Syria: All Sides Must Spare Civilians Trapped in Aleppo | MSF USA
The only specialised paediatric hospital in besieged east Aleppo has come under attack for the second time since airstrikes resumed on 15 November, destroying three floors and leaving it out of service. Three other hospitals have also taken direct hits, resulting in casualties among staff and patients and leaving two key surgical hospitals and the largest general hospital out of service.“This is a dark day for east Aleppo. The severity of the bombing has inflicted huge damage on the few hospitals working around the clock to provide medical care,” says Teresa Sancristoval, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) emergency coordinator. “The attacks have destroyed entire hospitals, electric generators, emergency rooms and wards, forcing them to stop all medical activities. It is not only MSF that condemns indiscriminate attacks on civilians or civilian infrastructure, including hospitals, but also humanitarian law. The message is simple and I don´t know how to say it any louder: stop bombing hospitals.” Source: Syria: Multiple direct and indirect hits on hospitals in east Aleppo in the last 48 hours | Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) International
Dozens of children who had to spend the night in a partially demolished migrant camp in Calais were loaded onto buses Friday to be taken to temporary accommodation elsewhere in France, aid groups said. Having failed to register with French authorities this week, they had no right to access a shipping container complex at the site where 1,500 registered children are staying while they wait to see if they can go to Britain. Confusion continued into Friday afternoon, when buses finally arrived outside the camp to pick up the stranded minors, as well as some adults who also remained, charity Care4Calais said.It wasn't clear whether all the unregistered children have now left The Jungle, nor where they were being taken.

The “fitting room” from which Potts stepped forth was actually an office of Save-a-Suit, a nonprofit foundation in Connecticut that was giving free suits, dress shirts and ties..

WHY & TRUST
Simon Sinek (@simonsinek) created a simple model, The Golden Circle, that codifies what makes the most inspiring people and organizations so successful and influential. Beginning as a student in anthropology, Simon Sinek turned his fascination with people into a career of convincing people to do what inspires them. Through his struggle to rediscover his excitement about life and work, he made some profound realizations and began helping his friends and their friends to find their “why” — at first charging just $100, person by person.

HR & MONEY?
Human Resource must prove their worth, like all other departments; “What do they brings to the table?”- and yes I know many will say, “but it is not the right focus” because we in HR do so many believe, but I think it’s a mistake.
Right now we are beginning to see Generation Y’s behaviour penetrate the world market. It is having many exciting influences. For example, one key expert indicated an increase in the recruitment market at no less than a factor of 3.2 solely due to the fact that Generation Y change jobs so much faster, and many in this generation are on the tip of their first (or second) job move.

I believe that all people have the same rights and have the same values as everyone else on this earth. It is therefore neither qualifying nor disqualifying to be related to a special group or to have a special interest. I do not judge people on age, family status, race, religion, political affiliation, trade union membership, ethnic origin, health information or sexual orientation, of any kind. I am neutral.
You will find articles on this website made by me or by friends and colleagues who share their beliefs. If an extern article has been changed, or an existing article sounds like it’s not following my neutrality beliefs, and we see the article on our website, we will take down this article the same second we know this.
I kindly ask you to let us know if some of our articles offend you or you feel that the point of view is not following our neutrality idea. I do feel respect for “the freedom of speech”, but we also believe in showing respect for other people.
