Digicel Defends amidst vociferous protest

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI, October 18, 2016 – Digicel defended its company reputation in a late day interview with Magnetic Media yesterday aimed at setting the record straight on what is happening at the telecommunications organization; and there to send the strong message to islanders was current CEO, Sinead O Marcaigh and EJ Saunders who remains a Director and shareholder of Digicel.Saunders said he is an investor in Digicel and would never sit on a board which supports disenfranchising Turks and Caicos Islanders.  EJ Saunders’ name appeared on placards of demonstrators who protested outside of the Leeward Highway headquarters of the company on Monday; the move by Digicel to make redundant seven staffers, including six Turks and Caicos Islanders has been met with vociferous objection.To our question about the make-up of their staff, Ms O Marcaigh explained that 60% of its senior management are Turks and Caicos Islanders, that they had increased staff to 75 since their right-sizing during the acquisition of WIV and overall, there are currently 11 work permit holders, and that figure will soon be reduced to nine.Protesters and press releases have called for Digicel to rehire, to instead let work permit holders go and attorney Finbar Grant even recommended to workers to take strike action and shut Digicel down.Former Telecoms boss, Drexwell Seymour though painted an entirely different picture in an op-ed piece he published online; saying essentially the redundancies are commonly done as companies evolve to keep pace with market demands.Magnetic Media learned too, that none of the political leaders seen in the protest have requested a meeting with Digicel to discuss their grievances face to face; at least one of the protestors is asking the country for the opportunity to be its Premier come next General Elections.The Immigration Board, in a rare interview given by its Chair, Sheba Wilson, threatened the revocation of work permits at Digicel and O Marcaigh admitted to Magnetic Media that the company is under review by the Board.It was also explained by both Saunders and O Marcaigh that they are confident the Immigration Board will find that Digicel is being fair and sincere in its need for the work permits to improve on its telecommunications network in these islands.

Audi Toyota Waymo and others launch selfdriving car education group

first_img Car Industry Self-driving cars are on the way — but does the public understand their abilities and limits? Toyota Automakers and suppliers are working hard to develop autonomous cars and other self-driving technologies. But ensuring members of the public understand what those technologies can do — and also what they can’t do — is a different challenge. That’s why Audi, Daimler, General Motors, Toyota, Volkswagen, Waymo and several suppliers have founded a new partnership to provide that information.PAVE, or the Partners for Automated Vehicle Education coalition, was announced at a press conference at CES on Monday. The group intends to teach people about self-driving technology using three key strategies. First, PAVE will work to get both consumers and policymakers (i.e. legislators) behind the wheel with driver-assistance technology. Second, the group will hold educational workshops on the technologies for legislators. And finally, PAVE will offer “educational materials” that car dealers and service centers can offer to customers. Although the coalition also hopes to reduce the number of crashes and fatalities on American roads, PAVE does not necessarily plan to endorse only certain types of technologies. “It’s not about lobbying for one specific type of technology or one way to do things,” says Deborah Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council, one of PAVE’s members. Instead, she says, the goal is “to help Americans better understand the potential and the promise of these technologies.” “We want to dispel the confusion about this technology that’s often misunderstood,” Hersman said. “We will provide clear and factual information so consumers understand this technology and what to expect.” Post a comment For automakers, many of whom are already PAVE members, the group’s education efforts should also ensure that car shoppers understand the benefits of driver-assist features in new models, as well as future self-driving cars. “No matter how good or ready the technology is, we need to ensure that society develops a level of trust with this automated technology,” said Kelly Kay, executive vice president of the Toyota Research Institute. Kyle Vogt, founder of Cruise Automation, agreed with the need for more public education. He said that his company likens today’s push for autonomy to the space race — the difference is, he said, that it’s being led by private companies who need to build trust with consumers. “People need to understand the technology to feel comfortable with it and ultimately to trust it with their lives,” he said. 9 Photos Share your voice 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better CES 2019 Tags 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealouscenter_img 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Self-driving cars: Stay up to date on all the latest news in autonomy.CES 2019 schedule: It’s six days of jam-packed events.
