A disabled access expert has questioned why 10 Dow

first_imgA disabled access expert has questioned why 10 Downing Street – which has one of the most iconically-inaccessible front doors on the planet – has been presented with a high-profile access award.Images of the front entrance to the prime minister’s home and offices – with its two steps to the front door – are shown every day all over the world.But despite staff needing to bring out a portable ramp if a wheelchair-user wants to enter the grade I listed building through the front entrance, 10 Downing Street was presented with an award at last month’s Blue Badge Style Awards.The awards recognise venues that have “made an effort to attract guests with disabilities”, and those nominated are rated on their style, facilities and accessibility, with other winners including the Ritz Carlton in Wolfsburg, Germany, the Beaumont Hotel in Mayfair, and the Dandelyan cocktail bar on London’s South Bank.The citation for the “above and beyond” award said that 10 Downing Street had “pulled out all the stops” on access.Historic England – the government-sponsored public body responsible for “championing England’s heritage” – told Disability News Service this week that it had advised the Cabinet Office on recent access improvements to the building, including a new internal lift, but that so far there had had been no discussions about the steps at the front entrance.Tracey Proudlock, founder of the leading access consultancy Proudlock Associates, and a former government adviser on disability equality, questioned why 10 Downing Street had been handed an award.She said the need to use a ramp at the front door showed that 10 Downing Street had not gone “above and beyond” on access, and she contrasted it with the “great thinking” that had gone into the “creative” access work at Canterbury Cathedral.Proudlock said that front doors are often symbolically important on access.She said: “In terms of Number 10, it is where you deliver your petition or go in to get your new ministerial job.“I think the entrance to Number 10 is really symbolic.“At any front door, disabled people don’t want to be treated differently and that is still happening here.“No matter how quick they are at deploying a temporary ramp, it’s still not an inclusive provision.“Getting out a portable ramp isn’t really a modern approach to providing inclusion.”Proudlock said that just because a building had grade I listed building status, that did not mean that features such as steps to a front door could not be removed.She added: “When big decisions on access are taken, they have to involve disabled people, and at the moment often they do not.”Earlier this year, she wrote in her blog how the Bank of England had come up with an ingenious solution to provide level access at its historic front entrance.She wrote: “If front entrance access can be achieved at the Bank of England – built in 1734, when most disabled people would have been in the workhouse or infirmary – it can be done in a lot more places…“Everyone blames everyone else for why it ‘can’t be done’ or ‘isn’t worth doing’.“Important public buildings, however historic, are no less important to members of the public who happen to be disabled.”A Number 10 spokeswoman said: “Downing Street is committed to accessibility and we have undertaken a programme of works over recent years to make sure this historic building is accessible to all who visit.”This includes improved accessible toilets, “increased ramping”, and a new lift providing access to the state rooms.She said: “We’re proud to have these efforts recognised by the Blue Badge Style Awards.”She said the front door was “manned by a custodian constantly, meaning that it is accessible 24/7 to those who require the use of a ramp”.But she had failed to say by noon today (Thursday) whether there had been any discussions about removing the steps at the front entrance.Historic England confirmed that the Cabinet Office was “rolling out a programme of improvements to the grade I listed complex to proactively address disabled access”.She said: “Historic England advised on the recent installation of the award-winning lift [inside] Downing Street and regularly discusses listed building alterations with Cabinet Office.”Another spokeswoman added later: “There have not yet been any formal discussions with Cabinet Office about alterations specifically to the front steps of Number 10.“The accessibility audit is still being worked through and we will continue to advise as necessary.”Fiona Jarvis (pictured, outside 10 Downing Street), founder of Blue Badge Style and a wheelchair-user herself, said the award recognised the effort made by 10 Downing Street in recent refurbishments.She said in a statement: “They now have stylish toilets for people with disabilities on every floor and stairs that turn into a lift, allowing people with disabilities to get from the main building to the rest of the rooms more easily.“Immediately you arrive they come out with a portable ramp, which means you can negotiate the iconic front steps which are tied by a grade I listing. “More than anything it’s their attitude to doing their best for people with disabilities that won them the award.”Asked why the award had been given when the front entrance was so clearly inaccessible to wheelchair-users, a spokeswoman said that Jarvis “recognises the issue with the steps, but her experience was that [because] they got the ramp out so quickly, there wasn’t a problem getting in to the building”.last_img read more

Aloft Hotel Adds SiriEquipped Rooms

first_img Enroll Now for $5 August 29, 2016 David Murphy Fireside Chat | July 25: Three Surprising Ways to Build Your Brand Aloft Hotel Adds Siri-Equipped Rooms –shares Next Article Add to Queuecenter_img This story originally appeared on PCMag Hey Siri, fluff my pillow and make sure I’m awake at 7 a.m. for my workout. And make me a coffee at 6:55 a.m. so I can wake up to that sweet aroma, slam it and run out the door. Now, tell me a bedtime story.That’s an ambitious list of tasks for Apple’s digital assistant, but some vacationers will soon get a chance to have Siri serve as their digital butler if they’re staying at either the Santa Clara or Boston Seaport Aloft Hotel. If you’re in one of the hotel’s new Siri-equipped rooms, you’ll get an iPad to play around with that comes with a customized app that lets you control many of the room’s options by yelling “Hey Siri.” “Forget the phrase ‘at the touch of your fingertips.’ Today’s early adopter, hyper-connected global traveler wants a level of personalization unlike ever before, and that means being able to control their hotel experience with the sound of their voice. We’re thrilled to be the first hotel brand to bring voice activation to our guests in this way, using Siri to control room temperature, lighting and more during their stay,” said Brian McGuinness, global brand leader at Aloft Hotels, in a statement.Personalized welcome screens on the aforementioned iPads will help guests familiarize themselves with what they can (and can’t) do by yelling at Siri. It’ll also be the way in which each guest (or one guest, speaking on behalf of the room’s occupants) gets the iPad to recognize his or her voice for “Hey Siri” commands.Once set up, guests will be able to use Siri to control their room’s temperature (thanks to the room’s HomeKit-enabled Ecobee thermostat), adjust the room’s Philips Hue lighting, turn music on and off (so long as guests sign into their iTunes accounts on the iPad first) and figure out various attractions to visit around their particular hotel. It stands to reason that guests will also be able to use Siri for most of the conventional requests they might normally use Siri for: setting alarms, figuring out complex mathematics and other queries like that.Aloft will reset the iPads upon checkout.

New study estimates prevalence and risk factors for misuse of prescribed opioids

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Feb 6 2019A new Pharmacoepidemiology & Drug Safety study estimates the prevalence and risk factors for self-reported misuse of prescribed opioids in the general adult population.Based on data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the study’s investigators estimate that of more than 89 million US adults who used prescription opioids every year, close to 3.9 million (4.4 percent) reported misusing the prescribed medications. Prescribed opioid misuse was most strongly associated with co-occurring misuse of opioids without a prescription, misuse of benzodiazepines, other drug use disorders, history of illegal activity, and psychological distress.”While most people who are prescribed opioid medications use them as prescribed, a minority tend to use a higher dose, use the medication more frequently, or for a longer time than prescribed,” said lead author Dr. Ramin Mojtabai, of Johns Hopkins University. “Prescribers should be especially vigilant about the possibility of misuse among patients who are prescribed more potent opioid medications and prescribed these medications for long-term use.”Source: https://newsroom.wiley.com/press-release/pharmacoepidemiology-and-drug-safety/study-estimates-misuse-prescribed-opioids-united-last_img read more

Fiat Chrysler slams brakes on Renault merger

first_img Relations between Renault and Nissan have been strained since the arrest of former boss Carlos Ghosn in November Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, or FCA, had stunned the markets last week with a proposed “merger of equals” with the French group that would—together with Renault’s Japanese partners Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors—create an auto giant spanning the globe. The French government, which controls 15 percent of Renault, gave the deal a conditional green light, with analysts suggesting it wanted more control over the combined group alongside Fiat’s Agnelli family.FCA said late Wednesday it “remains firmly convinced of the compelling, transformational rationale” of the tie-up, which it said was “carefully balanced to deliver substantial benefits to all parties”. “However it has become clear that the political conditions in France do not currently exist for such a combination to proceed successfully,” it said in a statement. On Thursday, FCA chief John Elkann stood by the decision to start, and then leave, the merger talks.”When it becomes clear that the conversations have been brought to the point beyond which it becomes unreasonable to go, it is necessary to be equally brave to interrupt them,” Elkann wrote in a letter to employees published by Italian media. The merger plan was welcomed by analysts as one of the few deals in the auto sector that might prove a success Nissan had cautiously received the news of a proposed Fiat-Renault merger Citation: Fiat Chrysler slams brakes on Renault merger (2019, June 6) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-06-fiat-chrysler-merger-renault.html This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Italian-US carmaker Fiat Chrysler on Thursday pulled the plug on its proposed merger with Renault, saying negotiations had become “unreasonable” due to political resistance in Paris. Pointing to falling sales volumes in major auto markets, she said “mega-mergers designed to save on capital expenditures remain inevitable”.On Tuesday, Renault’s board had said it was studying FCA’s offer “with interest”, but held off final approval pending further deliberations. By Wednesday, all Renault directors had come round in favour of the merger, with exception of employee’s representative affiliated with the powerful CGT union and two from Nissan who abstained, according to a source close to Renault. The two Nissan directors were said to have asked for more time to approve the deal. There was no official comment from Nissan headquarters in Tokyo.Relations between Renault and Nissan have come under strain since the arrest in November of their joint boss, Carlos Ghosn, who awaits trial in Japan on charges of financial misconduct. Explore further Fiat Chrysler Automobiles was “firmly convinced of the compelling, transformational rationale” of its merger proposal A source close to the finance ministry said the French government “regrets the hasty decision of FCA”.”Despite significant progress, a short delay was still necessary so that all conditions set by the state could be met.”Le Maire indicated the French government was amenable to changes at Renault despite FCA’s U-turn.”We remain open to the prospect of industrial consolidation, but once again, in calmness, without haste, to guarantee the industrial interests of Renault and the industrial interests of the French nation,” he told the French parliament.For his part, Elkann said FCA “will continue to be open to opportunities of all kinds that offer the possibility of strengthening and accelerating the realisation of this strategy and creating value”. Renault expressed its “disappointment” at the about-turn.”We view the (Fiat) opportunity as timely, having compelling industrial logic and great financial merit, and which would result in a European-based global auto powerhouse,” it said in a statement.The combined group, including Nissan and Mitsubishi, would have been by far the world’s biggest, with total sales of some 15 million vehicles, compared to both Volkswagen and Toyota, which sell around 10.6 million apiece.Shares in Renault plunged by more than six percent on the Paris stock exchange. In Milan, FCA shares also initially slid but then recovered to close up 0.1 percent.Nissan holds keyDespite the verbal sparring that erupted after FCA’s announcement, industry experts did not rule out talks being resumed. French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire had laid down conditions for the tie-up with FCA, insisting there be no plant closures and that the Renault-Nissan alliance be preserved. The Renault source said Le Maire had asked for another board meeting next Tuesday following his return from a trip to Japan where he was to discuss the proposal with his Japanese counterpart at a meeting of G20 finance ministers. Blame gameA source close to FCA said it was the “sudden and incomprehensible” objections by Le Maire’s ministry that had caused the deal to collapse.Italian Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio said: “When politics tries to intervene in economic procedures, they don’t always behave correctly, I don’t want to say any more.” But Le Maire stressed that, of his conditions, only the explicit approval of Nissan remained to be secured, while aides denied that the ministry had played politics with the deal. Fiat Chrysler said it would be unable to reach an agreement with the French government over the proposed merger with Renault © 2019 AFP “The collapse of the proposed Fiat Chrysler/Renault merger leaves both firms exposed to the shifting dynamics of a sector at a crossroads,” Ilana Elbim, credit analyst for Hermes Investment Management, said in a note.

Streetwise Tunisia end Madagascars dream with 30 quarterfinal win

first_imgCAIRO (Reuters) – Tunisia ended Madagascar’s remarkable Africa Cup of Nations run when they beat the rank outsiders 3-0 in their quarter-final on Thursday, notching their first win of the tournament in the process.Madagascar, a country with little football tradition and who had not been expected to progress beyond the group stage on their first appearance at the finals, held out until the second half when they were undone by Ferjani Sassi’s deflected shot.Youssef Msakni added a second on the hour for the Carthage Eagles, ranked 25th in the world against Madagascar’s 107th, and substitute Naim Sliti finished it off on the break in stoppage time to earn them a semi-final against Senegal on Sunday.Tunisia had drawn their previous four matches at the tournament, beating Ghana on penalties in the last 16. {{category}} {{time}} {{title}} Related News Football 08 Jul 2019 Madagascar fairytale continues with shootout win over DR Congo Football 09 Jul 2019 Tunisia take last place in the Cup of Nations quarter-finalscenter_img Football 09 Jul 2019 VAR to be used from Africa Cup of Nations quarter-finals The Indian Ocean islanders had beaten Nigeria on their way to winning their group and then knocked out Democratic Republic of Congo on penalties in the previous round but it was always going to be different proposition against streetwise, if uninspiring, Tunisia.”Today, the bar was too high, Tunisia were too strong for us, they were a very well-organised team. The result was logical,” said Madagascar coach Nicolas Dupuis, who also coaches French fourth-tier side Fleury.”I am very proud of the players and what they have done at this tournament, it’s exceptional. I take off my hat to them.”Despite having more possession, Tunisia were let down by the final pass early on while Madagascar were more incisive on the occasions they went forward.Tunisia began to take control towards halftime, however, and Madagascar goalkeeper Melvin Adrien twice had to dive at the feet of the marauding Tunisian forwards and then parried Wahbi Khazri’s curling free kick around the post.He was then called into action again to save Ghaylen Chaalali’s low drive from 25 metres.Khazri had a goal disallowed for offside at the start of the second half but it was not long before Tunisia went ahead, although it was very tough on Madagascar.Sassi’s shot in the 52nd minute appeared to offer no real threat to Adrien until it took a wicked deflection off Thomas Fontaine to leave the hapless goalkeeper completely wrong-footed.Eight minutes later, Tunisia struck again. Adrien saved Khazri’s shot but was powerless when Msakni collected the rebound, slipped past a defender and planted the ball in the bottom corner.After that, Tunisia decided to sit back on their lead and Madagascar never looked like mounting a fight back.Although they kept pushing forward, their remarkable campaign ended with something of a whimper with Sliti’s breakaway goal in stoppage time rubbing salt into the wounds.
