When wars or humanitarian disasters suddenly strike, people are often eager to offer support to those who have been affected. However, it can be difficult to navigate the wide and often uncoordinated range of NGOs and websites that offer various ways to participate.

To prevent this problem from occurring during the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, the Česko.Digital initiative, in cooperation with several NGOs and volunteer groups, created stojimezaukrajinou.cz, a website that aims to provide a platform central to anyone wishing to donate or otherwise help Ukrainians in their fight against the Russian invaders. Martina Hábová, Marketing Manager of Česko.Digital, explains:

“We wanted to offer all Czechs willing to help a unified platform where they can access all different forms of support. At the same time, we wanted these forms of support, whether through NGO projects, forms of direct aid to the Ukrainian army, or housing options for refugees, to be verified. Indeed, people are of course afraid to send money where it may not be used for the purpose intended. So that was also our goal: to bring together a wide range of verified contacts.

She says there were originally several projects on how to create such a website in parallel. However, the rapidity of events in Ukraine, after Russia invaded the country on Thursday morning, led everyone to interconnect and create a unified website within 48 hours. To achieve this goal, more than 150 volunteers coordinated through platforms such as slack and Google docs over a single weekend, often working late into the night, says Hábová.

“The speed, the extraordinary contribution and the wide response, both within the company and among the volunteers, are impressive. Many come to us and want to join in the help. People working in competing companies come together to create a unified pro bono project. Everyone is very proactive, helpful and hard working. It is an unforgettable experience to be part of it.

The result is a website that offers information, as well as direct access to relevant websites, both for those who offer and for those who need help. Forms of support include direct financial aid, legal aid for refugees, emergency housing, transport and psychological helplines for people in shock. There is also a special marketplace on the platform where individuals can directly offer or select offers for help. The website can be viewed in Czech and Ukrainian.

Ms. Hábová says the website is largely complete, but could still be fine-tuned in the future.

“The main goal of our collaboration with We Support Ukraine (Stojíme za Ukrajinou) was to create this website. Now we need to get it working and up to date. We’re going to focus on that this week. Normally our work focuses on creating systems and then handing them over to a custodian. In previous projects this has been the case and we are looking to continue this tradition with respect to the current project.

“We are also discussing the possibility of adding maps to the website. However, this is only in its infancy at the moment.

Stojimezaukrajinou.cz is already the fourth web project of the Česko.Digital initiative in recent years. Previous projects included Učíme online, an online system that could organize webinars and offer technological support to schools closed during the coronavirus pandemic, or the government’s Covid Portal website.

These include the provision of additional vehicles to accommodate two-car operations and the upgrading of the rolling stock workshop,” said Kenji Terasawa, President and CEO of MHIENG. “We look forward to strengthening our long-standing relationship with LTA through this expansion project which will help meet growing demand while continuing to provide reliable transportation.”

MHIENG will coordinate with its Singapore-based Technical Service Center, which was established within MHI-AP in April 2021, to provide more localized services. Through close cooperation with the company, MHIENG aims to provide long-term technical support, spare parts supply and other types of localized high value-added services to better meet customer needs. A hub for MHI’s transportation service business in Asia Pacific, the Technical Service Center provides “one-stop service” to respond to customer inquiries and requests in a timely manner and strengthens operations, maintenance and the after-sales structure of MHI’s transport system products in the region.

MHI Group draws on its extensive experience in supplying AGT systems around the world, including Singapore’s Changi Airport Skytrain (APM (Note3)) and systems in Japan, USA, Dubai and Macau, as well as its high-quality operations, maintenance and after-sales service. – sales services to maintain a competitive position in the world market for new transport systems. MHI will continue to provide safe, low-carbon transportation solutions that will help support economic development and provide better convenience for people in Singapore and countries around the world.

Arlington County, Virginia – Saturday February 12, 2022. Arlington County Council has adopted a new vision for a vibrant and livable Pentagon City, following an 18-month planning process. The Board of Directors voted 5-0 to approve the Pentagon City Area Plan (PCSP) and its associated changes to the Comprehensive Plan and Zoning Ordinance.

The adopted plan creates certainty for the community going forward while providing flexibility for landowners that will help diversify housing options, prioritize multi-modal transportation and embrace biophilic design. In addition to setting clear performance standards for the development, the plan includes three linear miles of a Green Ribbon pedestrian network to connect existing and future public spaces, five acres of new public parks and plazas, an expansion of a acre of Virginia Highlands Park, strategies for the location of public facilities, and minimum standards for on-site affordable housing.

County Board Chairwoman Katie Cristol highlighted the plan’s forward-looking look, noting that Pentagon City, with its rich public transit network and access to economic opportunity, is a great place to accommodate more homes for Arlingtonians. “The sector plan envisions the transformation of private spaces into public parks, new multi-modal connections and streets, and more ways for residents to connect with each other and with nature,” she said. .

The Pentagon City Area Plan replaces land use policies that have governed the area since the 1970s and builds on the work of Livability 22202, which is a collaborative effort between three area civic associations. It was adopted after an extensive period of public engagement that included a diverse focus group, online engagement, virtual town hall meetings and open houses, a walking tour of the site, as well as one-on-one meetings with residents. and other stakeholders.

During Saturday’s meeting, stakeholders and community members continued to provide insight into the plan, further emphasizing the balance between the many local and regional priorities facing Arlington. Over the past year and a half, community feedback has influenced the sector plan, leading to changes in its recommendations for transportation, public spaces, affordable housing and public facilities.

The community will have the opportunity to remain engaged during the implementation of the sector plan, by reviewing specific site plan requests and initiating subsequent short-term analysis. The county council, along with county staff, remains engaged in efforts to educate and engage residents of nearby rental properties and condominium/multi-family properties as the plan evolves.

The County Council was also pleased to note that the PPCP is the first long-term plan that specifically addresses equity as it evolves. The Planning Commission asked the council to “ensure that the county learns the true lived experience and perspective of a wide range of people and cultural practices”. In recognizing Black History Month, board member Christian Dorsey backed the sentiment, saying “our job to achieve racial equity in our government processes, investments and actions is to honor resilience and to reward excellence”.

In the coming weeks, county staff will finalize the plan documents as adopted by the county council. The final version will be posted on the project webpage, where the public can also learn more about the overall study process.

For many in the transportation industry, Indianapolis is considered sacred ground, due to its iconic race tracks, museums, and overall history. A select group of UVU Transportation Technology students got a rare glimpse behind the curtain of this great city with incredible happenings.

The 2021 trip to Indianapolis is the second time Holm and the UVU team have taken students and introduced them to a wide variety of industry leaders. Students rubbed shoulders with senior engineers, marketing experts and everyone in between, along with some of the biggest names in motoring, including Doug Boles, two-time Indy Car champion owner and current president of Indianapolis. Motor Speedway.

Boles invited the UVU team to the Indy Speedway corporate conference room and spent over an hour with them answering industry questions. Students also enjoyed a special educational breakfast reserved exclusively for educators and students and listened to an opening breakfast from Boles and racing icon Roger Penske.

The events were made possible through the relationships Holm has established over his years in the industry. “Few people have had the chance to do what I did [in the automotive
industry]”, Holm said. “But I’ve always wanted to give back and this opportunity is one of those opportunities. I’m grateful to do that.

The whirlwind trip also included a special tour, not open to the public, of the Cummins Headquarters Museum. The museum was open specifically for UVU students. The Cummins Museum demonstrates its dedication to design by showcasing industrial equipment out of the shop floor and presenting it as product design.
