DOT Reasonable Suspicion Training Course by DrugTestingCourses.com Safeguard’s DOT-Regulated Employers

The logo for DrugTestingCouses.com

DrugTestingCourses.com logo

DrugTestingCourses.com has released a new version of its popular DOT reasonable suspicion training course which meets DOT regulatory requirements.

Our company helps employers fight the new synthetic opioids and the American opioid epidemic by providing supervisors the education necessary to identify drug misuse in the work place.”

— Andrew Easler, B.Ed

MELBOURNE, FLORIDA, USA, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Easler Education, through its online training platform DrugTestingCourses.com, has developed its most recent version of reasonable suspicion training in order to accommodate both DOT regulatory requirements and modern Congressional concerns over new synthetic opioids and the American opioid epidemic.

On October 24, 2018, the president signed the “Fighting Opioid Abuse in Transportation Act” into law as part of House bill H.R. 6. Among other priorities, this new law sets new deadlines for the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Transportation to act on prior Congressional requests for reports on important drug and alcohol testing amendments. Among these, Congress essentially wants to either (1) implement saliva and hair testing into federal testing programs; or (2) know why they shouldn’t.

Why the sudden urgency? In 2016 alone there were over 42,000 opioid overdose fatalities. That number is now estimated to be nearly 48,000 in 2018. President Trump has been working with Congress since his inauguration in 2016 to combat the opioid epidemic with a variety of different legislative efforts including reducing prescription dosages and limiting the use and prescription of potent synthetic opioids.

In a “special edition” announcement on November 9, 2018 the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) declared that, as a result of its 23% increase in reported employee positive drug results from 2013 to 2017 to above its 1% threshold, the FTA would be doubling the current rate of testing in its mandatory random testing pools from 25% to 50% of all of its covered employees.

As the opioid crisis grows, the DOT has worked overtime to adapt, including expanding its opioid panel in 2018 to encompass Codeine, Morphine, 6-AM (heroin), Hydrocodone, Hydromorphone, Oxycodone, and Oxymorphone. The DOT now must rely more heavily on its existing safeguards for the American public including pre-employment drug testing, random testing pools, post-accident testing, and reasonable suspicion testing.

For example, in the federal regulation 49 CFR Part 382.603 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration requires supervisors be trained for at least 60 minutes in the signs and symptoms of controlled substance use and at least 60 minutes in the signs and symptoms of alcohol misuse. This particular regulation has been in force since 1994 and training companies have been drafting and implementing classes and materials for supervisors of employers who need to comply with this or similar legislation.

These regulations mention only “controlled substance use” and do not outline particular substances–this has the effect of giving the implementation and enforcement of this provision flexibility as the controlled substance environment in America changes and new substances come to market–including new, highly potent opioids. However, through all of this change, employers may be hard pressed to find training companies offering online, continuously updated supervisor training courses.

The reasonable suspicion training courses at DrugTestingCourses.com not only comply with the DOT regulations, but also work to improve supervisor awareness and proficiency in determinations, effectively shoring up one important safeguard in the DOT arsenal for employers who utilize the online courses which now include reasonable suspicion training for all Schedule I-V Controlled Substances currently listed by the Drug Enforcement Administration.

Think Silicon Completes Ambitious 2.5 Year Plan with the Successful Finalization of the EU Funded GPU-WEAR Project

This worthwhile effort required a multidisciplinary design methodology spanning circuits, architectural, compiler, and API-level power efficient techniques to work in a seamless fashion.”

— Dr. Georgios Keramidas CSO of Think Silicon and GPU-WEAR project lead

PATRAS, GREECE, November 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Think Silicon, a leader in ultra-low power graphics IP technology, announced the completion of an ambitious 2.5 year plan with the culmination of an array of innovative ultra-low power Graphics-Processing-Unit (GPU) IP-technology, together with a complete ecosystem of development-tools. Key highlights for the company include filing 10 international patents (six granted, four pending) and extending the sales channel in Europe, North America, Taiwan and Japan. The impressive project goals, established in 2015, resulted in numerous exhibits at major trade events such as the International Consumer Electronics Show, Mobile World Congress, Embedded World and executive speaking opportunities at the Synopsys ARC Processor Summit, Linley Processor Conference 2017, HiPEAC 2018, DATE Conference, and many more.

“To reach a meaningful impact-level of ultra-low power consumption, required by Wearable, IoT and Embedded Display devices, represents a technological challenge”, says Dr. Georgios Keramidas CSO of Think Silicon and GPU-WEAR project lead. “This worthwhile effort required a multidisciplinary design methodology spanning circuits, architectural, compiler, and API-level power efficient techniques to work in a seamless fashion. We are very thankful for the support of the European Union’s ‘Horizon 2020’ Research and Innovation Programme.”

During the Horizon 2020 program, Think Silicon achieved a variety of technology achievements including:
● Holistic power reduction techniques
The main objective of the project was to develop holistic power reduction techniques by reducing power not only on ASICs (Chip) level, but also for the entire system (Display device). To achieve this, the company developed and implemented multiple techniques, such as value- memorization, new image/texture/z-buffer compression methods, smart clock gating, power gating, and adaptive backlighting.

● Transparent “display-aware” and “QoS-aware” graphics libraries
One of the biggest challenges that graphics application developers face is the lag of transparency accessing graphics libraries. Think Silicon implemented a “Run-time system” in the GPU driver as well as a QoS (Quality-of-Service) extension to graphics APIs. In addition, the cross-platform middleware GLOVE™ has been developed, which translates at runtime, OpenGL® ES / EGL calls and ESSL shaders to Vulkan® commands and SPIR-V Shader.

● NEMA®|SDK
As an essential toolbox for developers to develop power-aware yet still high-performance software applications for Wearable, IoT and Embedded display devices, NEMA®|SDK is a complete ecosystem of tools providing the utmost access to the GPU hardware. The NEMA®|SDK tool-box is comprised of six tools: NEMA®|GFX-API, NEMA®|GUI-Builder, NEMA®|Bits, NEMA®|PIX-Presso, NEMA®|SHADER-Edit and GLOVE™.

● Heterogeneous GPU
NEMA®|tS (tiny-small) helps to achieve an optimal combination of power-performance load balancing.

● NEMA®|xNN
Because Machine Learning and Deep Neural Networks (DNN) are complexity intensive models that require vast processing power, NEMA®|xNN was developed to address the 1000x gap (in terms of power and/or performance) compared to what competitive solutions offer.

Think Silicon has been recognized by global news outlets including Electronics Weekly, Packt, Microcontroller Tips, Programmable Web, the prestigious John Peddie Research and many more. Additional news about Think Silicon is available online at https://think-silicon.com/category/news/.

Betting Odds Released for Potential Oscars Hosts of 2019 Academy Awards

My wishful thinking for host would be Will Ferrell at +1100 odds. The show would be hilarious without having to rely on politics to try and draw some laughs.”

— Raphael Esparza

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA, UNITED_STATES, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Famed expert sports handicapper Raphael Esparza continues to make a name for himself outside the realm of sports with his betting predictions covering events in the world of entertainment and pop culture.

Working in conjunction with MyBookie online sports book and Doc’s Sports Service as a recognized leader in sports handicapping, some of his recent prop bet predictions have covered the Mega Millions Lottery record-breaking jackpot as well as the next actor to play Batman. Recently, he posted his betting prediction for which personality from the world of entertainment will get the nod to host next year’s 91st Academy Awards set for Sunday, Feb. 24.

Esparza left no stone unturned with a grocery list of 22 possible choices, starting with Ellen DeGeneres as a +250 favorite and ending with Oprah Winfrey at long 500-1 betting odds. You could also place a bet on the Field at +900, but the odds posted at MyBookie for this prop did cover all the relevant players lining up to fill the role.

Interestingly enough, he did cross names such as Justin Timberlake, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Billy Crystal, Melissa McCarthy, Whoopi Goldberg and Jerry Seinfeld off the list since they have already taken themselves out of the running, according to Hollywood rumors. Even though Jimmy Kimmel is listed as a +350 second-favorite after hosting the Oscars the past two years, Esparza highly doubts he will be back due to other rumors citing a heavy workload.

According to the expert handicapper, the Academy may be looking to go in a new direction to stay away from politically incorrect jokes. In a direct quote from the post he added, “My theory is that they should go with someone who is charismatic, a comedian, and someone who has connection in the move/television industry.”

He also went on to state, “I can guarantee everybody will agree with me to take politics out of the format. Let’s just laugh, cry, and have a good night watching who brings home the Oscar Trophy.”

As far as some actual picks, he is going chalk with Ellen DeGeneres as his top prediction given her ability to fit the bill after garnering some very high ratings for hosting the 2014 Academy Awards. If you are looking for a value pick at longer odds, Jimmy Fallon at +700 and Ricky Gervais at +1300 topped that list.

When asked about his personal choice to host the 2019 Oscars, Esparza mentioned, “My wishful thinking for host would be Will Ferrell at +1100 odds. The show would be hilarious without having to rely on politics to try and draw some laughs.”

HUMN.ai Completes Successful London Fleet Insurance Pilot

By-the-moment pricing saves 20% on insurance costs for highly utilised taxi fleet.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — HUMN.ai, the stealth inshuretech startup developing by-the-moment risk-adjusted insurance pricing for highly utilised vehicles such as rideshare fleets has successfully completed a pilot with a London-based rideshare car leasing fleet.

The Rideshur platform collects real-time streaming telematics data and continuously adjusts the insurance premium cost based on the risk exposure at any given moment.

Rideshur will enable our insurance partners to sell on-demand insurance to fleets with fully utilised assets on a metered basis with the unit price being adjusted in real-time. The platform pricing model is flexible and units can be metered by either time or distance.

A new price is cut every 200 milliseconds and rates are varied depending on the state of the vehicle and the risk associated with the driving style of the driver as well as external conditions such as traffic, weather, road types and speed limits as well as fatigue, distraction and a proprietary "crash map" built by HUMN.ai.

Mark Musson, HUMN.ai CEO said: "We ran an exercise of parallel pricing and proved a 15-20% cost savings even though the vehicles cover very high mileage. This proves our hypothesis that it is possible to develop new pricing models for fleets with vehicles that cover very high mileage and are traditionally rated on that fact alone. HUMN.ai is now focussed on finalising insurance partnerships which are currently in negotiation and look forward to announcing the consortium to back our product shortly."

HUMN.ai is building a new type of insurance for the future mobility market and has developed a real-time risk pricing engine running in a blockchain smart-contract for intensively utilised fleets such as those leasing cars to rideshare drivers. For more information visit: https://www.humn.ai
