Quality, taste is key A lack of international certification hasn't stood in the way of Rumi Spice, which conducts rigorous tests to make sure the saffron it is importing is clean and pure before arriving in the United States. The quality and taste of Rumi Spice saffron is what attracted Matt Holmes as a customer. “It's much higher potency,” says Holmes. “So while we pay a premium to use Rumi, it actually goes a longer way, so that's another benefit of using a higher quality product you can stretch how much you are using each time.” Famous investor “Our supply is outpacing our demand,” says Alaniz, “which is good for us because it keeps our prices low at the moment, but we hope to increase more demand here in the U.S. so we can purchase more saffron.” “The good thing about Rumi is they have a premium product that's fantastic to use,” says Chef Matt Homes.

Congressional Republicans are attempting to guarantee workers the right to a secret ballot in union elections and allow members to more easily opt out of paying for union political activity after seeing the Obama administration and Democrats block previous efforts. Rep. Phil Roe (R., Tenn.), a member of the House Education and Workforce Committee introduced the Employee Rights Act, a bill that has previously failed to advance out of the House, on Thursday. Roe said that the it would serve to counteract many of the handouts given to organized labor by the Obama administration, including its revision of union election rules that sped up the timeline of union certification votes, while preserving the lengthy process for decertifying a union. The ERA would force unions to hold re-certification votes on a regular basis to ensure that they still had the support of current, rather than past, members.

Why We're Paying Attention To be completely honest -- the type of technology being created by UiPath scares us a little. The potential drawback of human job elimination by way of AI continues to be a hotly-contested topic, and while it does make us slightly shake in our boots, we can’t help but be fascinated by the companies that throw their respective hats into that particular automation ring. But we also find ourselves drawn to the UiPath Academy -- a “free of charge, self-led online learning environment where anyone in the world can enroll and train to obtain a UiPath RPA certification.” The point of that certification? Creating more RPA experts that can help companies implement and make the best use of technology like UiPath’s. From a certain perspective, that could be seen as UiPath’s method of countering the potential job elimination resulting from widespread RPA -- by cultivating a population of experts who know how to make the best use of AI within certain organizations.

Speaking particularly about wood, which is a fantastic renewable material, we are working globally with responsible forest programs. We have our own foresters to secure good forest management which of course also included regeneration of forest. We also work with certification programs, at this time 100 % of our forest is responsible sourced and on top of this almost 75 percent of our wood comes from what we define as more sustainable sources (which is FSC certified or recycled).With KUNGSBACKA kitchen front for example we looked at how to make furniture out of waste, as waste is a big environmental challenge and we need to start seeing it as a resource. For the KUNGSBACKA kitchen front system, recycled PET bottles are used to create the thin plastic foil that covers the chip board at the core of the fronts. For one standard- sized kitchen door, some 25 bottles are used; an entire kitchen equals one thousand bottles.

TRANSGENDER singer-actress Jessie Chung will duet with local singing icon Fauziah Latiff for a number on her first Malay album. "Fauziah and I are going to do a duet for my upcoming Malay language album," she said during a recent media event to mark her latest album Be Strong which had reached platinum status in Malaysia.

Fauziah and Ziana Zain were the guest performers at Chung' concert then. Both of Chung's English albums, There You Are and Be Strong, achieved platinum certification for selling over 15 thousand copies. Chung will also hold her first concert in Australia in October.

55 and 55 pounds, regardless of the purpose of its flight. In our coverage of the FAA's drone registration program, we couldn't make heads or tails of the reasons behind this regulation. In addition to the questionable legality of this regulation, there are questions over the FAA's mandate to regulate anything flying under the 400 foot ceiling cited in the FAA's rules. The question of safety is also open a 2 kg drone is likely to cause injury to a passenger on a commercial flight only once every 187 million years of operation. In short, the FAA might not have the mandate of managing the air traffic, certification, and safety of the nation's airspace when it comes to model aircraft. While the Circuit court struck down the rule for registration concerning model aircraft, this still only applies to small (under 55 pounds) planes and quads flown within line of sight. Commercial drone operators still fall under the purview of the FAA, and for them the drone registration system will stand. Filed under: news

Even the biggest, most powerful companies in the world are at the mercy of a grade-school concept: supply and demand. That's how a person like Anthony Levandowski can get paid $120 million by Google , leave to start his own company, watch that company get acquired by Uber just months later, and then find himself barred from working on self-driving car technology by a U.S. court. That goes to show just how important Levandowskiand other engineers like himtruly are to the arms race around self-driving cars. "It's not like [you] can hire any one of the thousands or tens of thousands of people who have a particular certification," said Nidhi Kalra, who heads the RAND Corporation's self-driving car policy work. "They're looking for people who are innovators in the fields of machine learning, deep learning, LIDAR designand there aren't a lot of those people out there." Read more...
