Press release: New backing to transform the UK’s future through the modern Industrial Strategy

first_img Innovative ideas that bring together world-class UK science, research and innovation to develop cutting edge products and services of the future have received an extra £1.7 billion making it the largest increase for 40 years (to £7 billion). That includes £210 million to develop new medical diagnostic tools and treatments, £90 million for the food and farming industry to embrace agri-tech and £184 million for 41 UK universities to train the next generation of world-class scientists and engineers. 6 sector deals between government and industry have been published – from construction and automotive to nuclear and the creative industries, including £1.9 billion of investment in life sciences and £1 billion for artificial intelligence. They are not only about attracting investment and growth, but also ensuring we have the skilled, diverse workforce we need for the future. Plans for new technical qualifications (T-levels) and to transform the quality and quantity of apprenticeships.Furthered the connectivity of Britain’s towns, cities and rural areas, including the first allocations of the £190 million full-fibre challenge fund and £25 million for 6 5G testbeds across the UK. Opened the Transforming Cities Fund with billions of pounds ready to go to projects that drive productivity by improving connections within city regions. Opened the Faraday Institution in Oxford to keep the UK at the forefront of global battery manufacture.Announced plans for a new spaceport in Sutherland The UK now has the fastest growing infrastructure investment across the G7, providing £31 billion of additional capital spending to areas critical to improving productivity. Launched the £9 million Centre of Data Ethics and Innovation to act as an advisory body to government and regulators on ethics of data and its use, including for AI. Launched the Patient Capital Fund, which will invest £2.5 billion in our most innovative companies. It has been taken forward at pace over the last year: up to £125 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund for the Future Flight challenge a commitment to encourage more women into aviation £13.7 million to support SMEs to commercialise technologies the UK Aerospace Research Consortium of leading aerospace engineering universities will help industry understand emerging technologies, encourage collaboration and boost research and development encouraging the UK’s Aerospace sector to work with Local Enterprise Partnerships to deliver Local Investment Strategies collaborating with Devolved Administrations by putting in place apprenticeship standards that will help deliver the skilled individuals needed by the UK for it to prosper new joint government-Industry Aerospace Sector Deal to develop ‘Future Flight’ through the next generation of electric planes, drones and autonomous aircraft by 2025 multi-million pound package of new investment to turbo-charge UK industry and put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future comes as Business Secretary Greg Clark marks the first anniversary of the modern Industrial Strategy when he will say “no deal puts this all at risk” AI and data ageing society clean growth the future of mobility Supporting the deal, Baroness Sugg, Minister for Aviation said: ADS Chief Executive Paul Everitt said: A multi-million pound package of new investment to turbo-charge UK industry in support of the modern Industrial Strategy and put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, including up to £125 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to develop future flight £15 million government investment for GKN Aerospace’s new Global Technology Centre in Bristol. The centre is expected to open in 2020 and will ensure the UK is a hub for world class innovative technology for the next generation of fuel-efficient aircraft The new government-industry Aerospace Sector Deal which includes support proposals for supply chain SMEs to boost their competitiveness on the global stage and a pledge to increase the number of women in aviation Follows yesterday’s announcement of the £1.3 billion Life Sciences Sector Deal 2 with record investment in diagnostics and early intervention to help people live healthier, longer lives The next steps for establishing a technical education system that will rival the best in the world, with an action plan for the introduction of the new T level qualifications as set out by the Secretary of State for Education in a speech at Battersea Power Station today Also, includes the Bio-economy strategy which was published earlier in the week to help double the size of the bio-economy to £440 billion by 2030, setting out an ambition for world-leading standards for bio-based and biodegradable plastics New Aerospace Sector DealAs part of the deal, the government is launching the Future Flight Challenge, which will provide up to £125 million to aerospace and other manufactures to research and engineer new technologies and infrastructure, which industry will match. This will support the development of electric and autonomous aircraft and transform the future of transport in urban areas as we utilise our airspace to ease congestion. Industry will initially focus on smaller aircraft and drones to ensure the suitability of the new technologies before developing them for larger passenger aircraft. It means that by 2026, the government and industry will have jointly invested more than £4 billion in the future of UK aerospace.Speaking about the deal, Greg Clark will say: A strong long-term partnership between government and industry is essential for UK aerospace to meet the challenges of global competition and new market opportunities. The Aerospace Sector Deal demonstrates the UK’s commitment to continue as one of the most attractive locations for the global aerospace and aviation industries. The Future Flight challenge will ensure the UK takes a lead in delivering cleaner, quieter and more innovative aircraft. We must fast-track the electrification of flight, exploit the global potential of new urban mobility solutions and pioneer autonomous aviation.center_img The UK’s contribution to the global aerospace industry cannot be underestimated. Half of the world’s modern large passenger aircraft have wings designed and built here in the UK; and every 2.5 seconds, a Rolls-Royce powered aircraft takes off or lands. But we are not complacent. The future of aerospace is cleaner, greener, and more efficient, and we want the UK to be the pioneers of new technology that will pave the way for increased electrification and autonomy in commercial aviation. This deal is our modern Industrial Strategy in action, combining the forces of government and industry to boost a sector that is vital to our future economy, export capabilities and will place the UK at the forefront of the next generation of air travel. For the past 2 years, I have been engaging with businesses, large and small, up and down the country about our post-Brexit economy. They have been clear and consistent in telling me what is needed to preserve jobs, open up new opportunities and build on the success of our trading relationships. An economy that will continue to be open and enterprising, driving invention and innovation through high regulatory standards, providing good quality, well-paid jobs throughout the country – with a reputation as a dependable and confident place to do business. This will be the test of a successful our long-term economic partnership with the EU. The withdrawal agreement is a significant first step in building our future relationship, while no deal puts this all at risk. Our modern Industrial Strategy is the government’s long-term plan for preparing and investing in our post-Brexit economy. And I could be in no better place than Bristol to mark this first anniversary. It is an honour to be visiting a city that has been at the heart of British industrial innovation for centuries. You can look out over the Avon and be reminded of the ingenuity of the floating harbour built here in 1809. The engineering behind it overcame one of the world’s highest tidal drops, stopping cargo ships getting stranded at low tide and opening-up the city to trade. And today, Bristol still exerts this influence. You can see it the world-leading advanced manufacturing plants of GKN, and the global cultural impact of animation companies like Aardman. Such world-beating enterprise will continue to be the UK’s calling card once we have left the EU. Truly world-leading science, innovation and business have no borders. Now – more than ever – we need to ensure that we remain an open, frictionless economy that welcomes talent while nurturing it at home. The hard-fought deal that the Prime Minister has secured has rightly been welcomed by businesses large and small throughout the country. I know many of you will be watching developments in Parliament in the coming days. I want to reassure you that the Prime Minister and I, together with our Cabinet colleagues, are intent on securing a good Brexit deal that delivers the certainty for business and therefore people’s livelihoods – up and down the country. Today’s package also includes: Notes to editorsThe Aerospace: Sector Deal includes: At a government event in Bristol with businesses, researchers, civic leaders and industry representatives to mark the first anniversary of the modern Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark will announce new support for the UK’s leading aerospace sector and the next generation of transport to tackle ground congestion and pollution in towns and cities.Aerospace: Sector DealThe deal will develop ‘Future Flight’ – including electric planes with vertical take-off capability, goods and service drones, to autonomous aircraft.Mr Clark is expected to say: The UK is a global leader in aviation innovation. From urban air mobility vehicles to small electric aircraft and drones, we are already developing exciting new forms of transport. Through the Future of Mobility Grand Challenge and alongside our forthcoming Aviation Strategy, we are exploring how these new technologies will change the way we travel, helping create the right conditions for the UK’s aerospace and drone industries to take off. The modern Industrial Strategy, published last year, sets out how the whole of the UK can build on its strengths, extend them into the future, and capitalise on new opportunities. Investing in science and research to keep the UK at the forefront of new technologies and the benefits they bring. Nurturing the talent of tomorrow – through more outstanding schools, world-leading universities and the technical skills that will drive the economy. And transforming the places where people live and work – the places where ideas and inspiration are born – by backing businesses and building infrastructure not just in London and the South East but across every part of our country.It sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, ensuring that the UK takes advantage of major global changes, improving people’s lives and the country’s productivity. The first 4 are focused on the global trends which will transform our future: Other funding to be announced today from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund includes projects to develop smart sustainable plastics packaging, accelerate early diagnostics in healthcare, harness the power of quantum technology, drive up manufacturing productivity (Made Smarter) as well as future flight. The funding will be delivered by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, subject to business case approval and match funding from industry.last_img read more

Gallery: Syracuse surrenders 2-goal lead in overtime loss to Providence

first_imgSyracuse (1-4-1 College Hockey America) lost, 3-2, to the Friars (4-2,1-0 Hockey East)) in overtime on Saturday at Tennity Ice Pavilion. The Orange scored a pair of goals in the opening two minutes of the second period, but then SU seemed to ease up defensively. Providence quickly responded with two goals of its own in the third period and then, in overtime, the Friars took advantage of Syracuse’s miscommunication to score on a breakaway. The puck slid between SU goalie Abbey Miller’s legs and Providence had come all the way back.

Before Beats: A Walk Through Apple’s Digital Music History, 1977 to 2014

first_img2001: iPodThe Power CD, a 1993 Apple digital-music flop, may not make this list, but the iPod certainly earned its place. Released in the relative dark age of 2001, the first iPod offered “1,000 songs in your pocket” and a nascent iTunes, then just a “digital jukebox”.The iPod embodied the kind of gestalt we’ve come to expect from Apple: an exciting, refined device that consumers didn’t even know they needed yet. Apple iPod sales over timeAs it began to capture the market’s attention in 2005, the iPod snowballed into the world’s premier digital-music gadget, cementing Apple’s image as flagbearer of the digital music revolution. With the later introduction of the entry-priced iPod Shuffle, Apple effectively made personal digital-music players available to everyone and anyone.  9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 2004: GarageBandAs the iPod picked up steam into 2004, Apple rolled out GarageBand, a platform for digital-music creation that grew increasingly robust over the years. Now available for iOS as well as OS X, GarageBand was a key step in transforming a growing base of music consumers into creators as well, while also buying some goodwill with existing musicians who wanted to explore digital tools. taylor hatmaker 1991: QuickTimeOriginally introduced in 1991, Apple’s QuickTime Player broke new ground for multimedia computing, which barely existed at the time. In 1994, QuickTime added support for music track playback that transcended existing computer audio quality and only necessitated small (now infinitesimally teensy) data files, like MIDIs, with its own native sound synthesis engine.Over time, QuickTime grew into Apple’s default video playback program, which lives on today. (For instance, you’ll need it to watch Cook’s keynote speech next week at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference.) Related Posts 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 2003: iTunes StoreApple introduced its first version of iTunes, built from its acquisition of early MP3 player SoundJam MP, in 2001. Two years later, with iPod hardware and iTunes as a software framework, Apple could finally introduce its biggest game-changer yet: a digital storefront stocked with 99 cent songs that upended the music industry as we knew it. Tags:#Apple#Apple II#Beats Music#digital music#Dr. Dre#iPad#iPhone#iPod#iTunes#iTunes Store#Jimmy Iovine#PowerCD#QuickTime center_img With the deal confirmed at last, it’s easy to balk at the $3 billion handshake between Apple CEO Tim Cook and Beats co-founders Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. After all, it’s far from clear just what Apple has in mind for the maker of headphones and its digital music-streaming service.See also: Apple Bought Beats Because “Music Is Dying”But Apple, widely credited with accelerating the first digital music revolution, could be poised for another industry shake-up—this one well overdue. After all, music has coursed through the company’s veins for longer than we often remember. Don’t believe me? Let’s take a trip down memory lane and see. 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 2010: iPadThe iTunes Store had already steeped the mobile world in apps by the time the first iPad hit, and as the most iconic tablet ever created picked up steam, it gained traction among creative developers and musicians alike. Suddenly major artists like Gorillaz and Bjork were making inventive albums on yet another Apple device we didn’t know we needed.With its larger screen and touch interface, and growing pool of music creation apps, the iPad made a huge impact on casual/indie digital-music creation and even the DJ scene.  5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout 2014: BeatsApple’s decision to purchase the hardware and digital music brand Beats struck plenty of folks as out of the blue, but it may have been crazy-like-a-fox from the start. The deal brings both Beats Music (the digital streaming app) and Beats Electronics (the hit line of headphones and speakers) into Apple’s fold.Perhaps more important, it brings on board Beats co-founders Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre, music industry insiders who could shake digital music up once again—this time from the inside out.Header image via anamanzarphotography, other images via Wikimedia Commons 1977: Apple IIBeyond its role in popularizing the personal computer as we know it, the Apple II line foreshadowed Apple’s sonic future. It wasn’t initally promising, though; while third party peripherals expanded its musical repertoire, 1977’s 8-bit Apple II began with only the most rudimentary audio features.By 1986, however, the Apple II had evolved into the 16-bit Apple IIgs (the “gs” stands for “graphics and sound”), a precociously audio-savvy machine featuring a wavetable music synthesizer—a first for personal computing at the time. The Apple IIgs commanded a loyal following all the way through 1992, when the Macintosh line took the Apple II’s baton.Want to rock out to Apple II era MIDIs with a little help from a more modern synthesizer? Well, it’s your lucky day. 2007: iPhoneWhen Apple remixed its hit MP3 player into a smartphone, everything changed. It’s hard to overstate the impact of the iPhone in any realm of consumer technology, and digital music is no exception. The advent of the iPhone meant that we no longer needed to carry around two separate devices, one for calls and one for music and media.By blending the utility of a phone, a digital music player, a pocket-sized computer and later an app platform, the iPhone took the market by storm and expanded its already massive digital music footprint.last_img read more

Shanghai knight

first_imgThe global concept store in ShanghaiI could be lost. I’m driving through Shanghai’s Nanjing Xi Lu area, looking for the Ritz-Carlton where I’m scheduled to stay. It seems to be the right place, but there’s no sign of the hotel. My Chinese driver nods unhelpfully when I ask him where,The global concept store in ShanghaiI could be lost. I’m driving through Shanghai’s Nanjing Xi Lu area, looking for the Ritz-Carlton where I’m scheduled to stay. It seems to be the right place, but there’s no sign of the hotel. My Chinese driver nods unhelpfully when I ask him where we are! Next thing I know, he’s swerved off the road and into the driveway of what looks like a giant Zegna property. The building is encased in the marque’s trademark black, the cars in the driveway are emblazoned with the logo, even the concierge is standing behind a Zegna-flagged podium. “Welcome to the Portman-Ritz Carlton. Welcome to Zegna,” says the concierge as he opens my door.Turns out there is a rather large corner of a foreign field that is for now Ermenegildo Zegna. The marque’s centennial celebrations, which began last spring in Italy, have wound their way to China. The timing couldn’t be better. The city is overrun by the world’s notables, here for the Shanghai Expo. The brand’s fifth global concept store has opened in town. And most fittingly, China has just whizzed past Japan as the world’s second-largest economy.Everyone is talking about Louis Vuitton’s dream run in China. Few know that Zegna is following close behind. The first Ermenegildo Zegna store in Greater China opened in the Beijing Peninsula Hotel in 1991. The brand now has over 75 stores across the country. The latest store just opened in Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia (yes, you read that right).The VIP room where clients get personalised serviceFor its centennial-celebrated only in Italy and China, I’d have you know-the brand has taken over a good part of the Shanghai hotel for its employees and guests. It’s quite a takeover. The lobby is overrun by suits; the keycard sends you to a Zegna room where the phones have a special Zegna Hotline number, the flowers come in a little branded box; even the lozenges are encased in little black logoed wrappers. Zegna is clearly making a statement, staking its claim to China, where it was the first luxury brand to open directly-operated stores exactly 20 years ago.The posturing is atypical of the low-key brand but impressive. It’s also easy to understand. Zegna’s sales in emerging economies now account for 40 per cent of its total sales and, to a large extent, offset the contraction seen in traditional markets like Europe and the US. A rapacious appetite for luxury goods is seen as a bellwether of a blooming economy. For much of the last few decades, that appetite has been strongest in Japan, making it the darling of the luxury world. When Hermes put out a coffee table book on its remarkable history a couple of years ago, it came in only two languages: French and Japanese. When the chef of Le Meurice went missing from the hotel’s kitchens, you could be sure he was doing demos for prized clients in Tokyo. Well, not anymore. He could well be in Shanghai.The company is run by fourth generation Zegnas, chairman Paolo, image director Anna and CEO Gildo, standing in the new Shanghai storeBecause China is the new Japan. Zegna is 100 per cent cashmere proof of that. This is the market that helped the brand contain the effects of the economic crisis that broke in 2008, and grew the group’s business by 29 per cent in 2009. It’s the jade in luxury’s new crown.Gildo Zegna, CEO of the Ermenegildo Zegna Group, is proud to admit that Greater China has become the biggest market for the Zegna brand worldwide. And to put his money where the mouth is. For the Beijing Olympics, his company shot the first-ever luxury menswear campaign in China with a budget of over 20 million Euro (Rs 120.8 crore). An integrated ad campaign across large format billboards, print and online videos, it was, cleverly, called Great Minds Think Alike. Actually, the brand’s intentions were made clear back in 2004 when, on a visit to the Shanghai International Circuit, chairman Paolo Zegna tried racing in a Maserati car bearing the Zegna logo and a fabric pattern, and explained his increased presence in the country: “In Europe, the competition is fierce and the pie is getting smaller. Here in China, when you make an investment, you can see the result.”48 top models from across the world walk the stone ramp for Zegna’s centennial celebrations in ShanghaiThe results are rather tangible. The brand’s new 7814-sq-ft global concept store stands on Huaihai Road, which hosts the who’s-who of excess. Next door stands a humungous Louis Vuitton outlet; across the road, Hermes has taken up the whole block for its new retail offering.Zegna’s global concept stores are the result of a partnership with Peter Marino, where the architect echoes the brand’s quality materials and contemporary style across the outlet. Marino, who has also designed stores for LV, says the fabrics created at the Lanificio Ermenegildo Zegna since 1910, in Trivero Italy, are the “pivotal inspiration for the store design, with Zegna’s spirit and inspiring brand story manifested directly on the building’s sandblasted glass faade”. Folk singer Sa Dingding performs in Mandarin, Tibetan and SanskritThe mirrored lights represent the trademark pinstripe livery fabric while the metallic strands in the windows resemble the woven composition of textiles. The central staircase is the sexiest feature, with an overlaid woven structure of criss-crossed polished stainless steel rods behind a glass curtain wall.A marble stripe traverses the store floor, in reference to the selvage on Zegna fabrics, the signature line at the edge of bolts of fabric that guarantees authenticity. The colour palette that runs alongside the wood and stone is, but naturally, overtly masculine.While this is the fifth global concept store created for the world leader in luxe menswear by Marino, the VIP luxury room (with a pale gold palette of stucco, where clients are given individual style consultations and personalised service) is exclusive to Shanghai. All of Zegna’s diverse collections ranging from formal to casual wear and accessories to the Z Zegna and Zegna Sport brands (think shearling coat trimmed with crocodile and leather jackets lined with wool), are displayed within the store’s two floors.On the evening of the official opening of the store is the much-touted centennial party. It starts solemnly enough with the launch of an exhibition, entitled A Century of Excellence. From Textile Factory to Style Factory, that was unveiled in June in Milan’s design museum La Triennale. Cocktails at the store follow, and then the Zegna club of family and friends trot off to the Shanghai Music Hall for the Autumn-Winter’10 Ermenegildo Zegna and Z Zegna shows. Under a mammoth canopy, watched by famous local faces from business, entertainment and fashion, as well as people who’ve flown in from Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan, 48 international models strut the latest designs from Milan on a 60-metre stone runway.The marque’s leather corner at Shanghai Grand Gateway PlazaShow over, the guests traipse across to the 17,222-sq-ft structure created next door for the afterparty. The place pulses with an abundance of surreal realism. Psychedelic visual displays are projected on suspended cylindrical screens and lightbeams bearing the Chinese term for ‘100 years’ swim through the air. Chinese folk singer Sa Dingding performs in Mandarin, Tibetan and Sanskrit, accompanied by dancers doing a traditional Chinese fan. Irish singer Roisin Murphy has the next act before New York’s DJ Coleman gets people on the floor and the real party going.Most of the crowd is young and male. That’s easily explained: 80 per cent of male Chinese consumers making luxury purchases fall within the age bracket of 18 to 44. Gildo says he expects the region’s sales to grow by at least 30 per cent this year by catering to the established, older clients with its premium made-to-measure products and targeting young money in China’s second-, third- and fourth-tier cities through the edgier Zegna Sport and Z Zegna brands.Last heard, Zegna was finalising its 20th anniversary celebrations in China for 2011. Watch out for that party if Gildo’s sales projections stay on track. The Ritz-Carlton be damned. They may need to take over Tiananmen Square for that one. The China storyThe first Zegna store in Greater China opened in the Beijing Peninsula Hotel in 1991.The Shanghai Global Store is the fifth of the Peter Marino concept stores for the marque. The first opened in Milan in 2007.Seventy-five of the Group’s 525 stores worldwide are located in Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan).In 2009, Greater China was the biggest market for the brand.Zegna’s links with Mongolia began to be forged in 1984, when a delegation visited the region to source the world’s finest cashmere.At least half of the 20 stores that Zegna plans to open in 2010 will be in Greater China.advertisementadvertisementadvertisementlast_img read more

Thelma Chalifoux former senator and Metis activist dies in Alberta at 88

first_img(Metis activist, and former senator Thelma Chalifoux died Friday. Photo courtesy: NAIT)The Canadian PressST. ALBERT, Alta.- Metis activist and retired senator Thelma Chalifoux has died.Chalifoux’s daughter, Debbie Coulter, says her mother passed away Friday evening at a care home in St. Albert, near Edmonton, and had been in declining health for some years.She was 88.Chalifoux was appointed to the upper chamber in 1997 and served until she retired at age 75 in 2004.Chalifoux was born in Calgary in 1929 and noted when she was named to the Senate that she raised seven children, so she was used to hard work.She began working in community development when she was offered a job by the Metis Association of Alberta.She later served as chairwoman of the Metis National Council Senate and vice-president of the Aboriginal Women’s Business Development Corporation.She was also the first Metis woman on the Senate of the University of Alberta.“We spent the last couple of days in her room surrounding her with love, music and stories,” Coulter said Sunday, noting that children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were present during that time.“We like to think that she could still hear us.”In her job with Alberta’s Metis Association, Chalifoux was sent from the cities of south and central Alberta to the northern bush country of Slave Lake, where she was to spend the next 12 years.Working with the Company of Young Canadians, a government agency that brought young workers in to help people in poor communities organize to improve their lot, she began fighting for better conditions for her people, especially better housing.She modelled her work on the writings of Saul Alinsky, who wrote about community development in black neighbourhoods in American cities.“When you develop communities, it’s like working in the trenches. You train the people to become self-sufficient,” Chalifoux told The Canadian Press in an interview in 1997.Along the way, she became one of the first Indigenous women to broadcast on private radio, Peace River’s CKYL.She received a National Aboriginal Achievement Award in 1994.During her time as senator she appointed a task force to consult with Edmonton’s Indigenous community about violent Indigenous youth gangs, and argued for better education and partnerships between the community, police and other Canadians.She also challenged a claim by then-Alberta premier Ralph Klein that she should have been elected to the post, noting she could have won an election.Chalifoux said she wouldn’t have a chance because she was a woman, Metis and didn’t have the finances for a campaign.After leaving the Senate, Coulter said her mother founded an organization to preserve and protect the Metis history in northern Alberta, called the Michif Institute. Coulter and her sister took it over when their mother became ill, and a version of it continues today.“There’s a saying that nobody wants on their grave that they wish they would have worked more. We were laughing about that the other day and we thought, well, except for my mother. She might have said that,” Coulter said.Contact APTN National News here: [email protected]last_img read more
