Its role is to serve as a facilitator identifying needs, assets and opportunities, assessing barriers and bringing people together to work on creative solutions, thinking for the whole city.All Saints believes community is very important – and the OCC lives into this value by bringing people together to a common table to provide opportunities to develop trusting relationships, to build on existing strengths, and to work together toward creative solutions. The work of the OCC is to hold up a common community vision and to inspire participants in collaborations to share resources, rather than duplicating efforts, in serving the wellbeing of others.In the spirit of identifying local needs and resources and bring people together around issues of common concern to envision and enact new ways to creatively address intractable problems – the OCC is engaged in collaborative efforts to bring civilian oversight to the Pasadena Police Department, activities to support best practices in homeless service provision, and recently helped organize to move the City of Pasadena to raise the minimum wage for all low-wage workers in the City. Other social justice issues addressed by the work of the OCC include: education, gun violence prevention, and legal aid among many others.Visit All Saints Church at 132 North Euclid Avenue.

AFBF asked Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump the same questions. Both candidates explained their positions on biotechnology, trade, immigration reform, regulatory reform, food safety and more.“The fact that the candidates took the time in the middle of this very competitive election season to go into such detail in their responses says a lot about the importance of these issues and the farmers and ranchers who care about them,” said Zippy Duvall, AFBF president. “Each of these issues touches our members at the farm and ranch level.

Tags:#automation#digital architecture Tips for Selling Smart Supply Chain Solutions Related Posts How OKR’s Completely Transformed Our Culture Suresh Sambandam Suresh Sambandam is the CEO of KiSSFLOW, a disruptive, SaaS-based enterprise-level workflow and business process automation platform enterprises with more than 10,000 customers across 120 countries. Enterprise companies today have three primary options for the architecture of their digital workspace. First, they can choose installed software, which works well for operating systems and middleware. If installed software doesn’t fit the bill, companies can turn to private or public cloud-based software. And if neither of those choices gets the job done, businesses can turn to a new trend of using hybrid clouds, giving enterprise users the ability to keep some data internally without losing access to SaaS and hosted solutions.Technological architecture choices like these carry consequences for any business. According to new research from the International Data Corp., IT infrastructure sales skyrocketed to $15.4 billion in the second quarter of 2018. As funding for IT options increases, the ramifications of making the wrong decision become more severe: A poor choice can lead to lost time, money, and productivity if a shift is necessary.Fortunately, artificial intelligence and automation tools are making architecture decisions and maintenance easier. One Accenture study found that AI implementations boosted profitability on average by 38 percent in 16 different industries. Leveraging the advantages of automation with architecture is a tricky proposition, but companies that get it right stand to reap enormous rewards.Automation Architecture Design in 2019 and BeyondLarge companies can no longer afford to lean on siloed internal processes to get work done. More than half of the U.S. workforce will consist of freelancers within a decade, which means businesses need to learn to manage operations and processes across a workforce with increasingly diverse needs and skills.Automation is the natural solution to the chaos created by an evolving economy. One company in New Zealand took a chance on the four-day workweek, relying on smarter tools to cover any gaps caused by cutting that fifth workday. Rather than see productivity drop due to lost time, the company experienced a surprising increase in productivity to match the boost in employee satisfaction. When companies let computing systems and automated processes to carry more of the burden, everyone wins.As the role of automation at work expands, the ripple effect will change how companies operate and how leaders manage their teams or individual employees. Platforms such as Slack and Facebook for Workplace will continue to gain traction. Larger players such as Microsoft and Oracle will undoubtedly unveil their own solutions. Priorities will shift toward filters and insights, where AI tools will help individuals quickly and accurately find the internal data that matters to them. Intranets will disappear as better options take their place.Consumers are already in on the advanced architecture action, though many don’t know they are. Single sign-on systems, such as those Google and Facebook use, allow end users to log in to multiple services with a single account. Few enterprises are taking advantage of the single sign-on model for now, but systems such as this one will help the companies of the near future streamline their internal operations in new, more efficient ways.Integration Leads to EvolutionThe enterprise stack, once owned by the Lotuses and SAPs of the world, has been broken down into modules for SaaS players to offer in party. Companies can now pick and choose which elements they need without paying for the ones for which they have no use. Today, the tides appear to be shifting back toward the integrated module format, and businesses are benefiting from the regression.Old modules have been refined to be more than the sum of their parts, creating a truly superior enterprise stack. New modules such as Salesforce and Freshworks lead to greater opportunities for companies to integrate and automate their operations.As these changes continue to progress, businesses should be conscious of how they build their larger data architectures to handle the load brought on by advanced tech. Data without proper integration is just noise, but if they are free from silos, automation tools can transform enterprisewide data into powerful insights. Smarter platforms prioritize tasks for team members and intelligently monitor work. The more interconnected the system, the greater its potential.This automated architectural future is not far away. Intelligent, transformative tools have already begun to shape the way physical and manufacturing industries do business. As tools become more refined — and as companies and employees alike learn to trust and embrace them — those same forward leaps in progress and productivity will make their way to other disciplines. Automation’s acceleration is growing steadily, and the businesses that organize their architecture to make the most of the change will see the greatest benefits.

India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni top-scored with an unbeaten 65 in a strong batting show as India strengthened its position in the third cricket Test against the West Indies by taking a healthy 104-run lead on day three here on Friday. Score | PhotosAs many as four visiting batsmen scored fifties as India, resuming at eight for no loss, ended the day at 308 for six while replying to hosts’ 204 all out.Dhoni shared 103-run sixth wicket stand with Suresh Raina (50) and made sure that the good work of opener Abhinav Mukund (62), VVS Laxman (56) Virat Kohli (30) does not go waste.West Indies, deprived of services of Ravi Rampaul and handicapped by a hobbling Darren Sammy, never quite wilted under a scorching sun and on a flat pitch on a day when 94 overs were bowled at Windsor Park.Nearly 90 overs were lost on the first two days of the match due to poor light and rain but no such problem emerged on Friday.India lost two early wickets of Murali Vijay (1) and Rahul Dravid (5) but thereafter steadily mounted their total without ever dominating a depleted attack.Dhoni, played his first innings of substance of tour, and when on 52 completed 3000 runs in Test cricket in the 86th innings of his 57th Test.The Indian captain has so far batted for 157 minutes and struck three fours from 109 balls. He walked in when India were frittering away the advantage, losing three wickets in the afternoon to nothing balls.Mukund, Kohli and Laxman were all guilty of poor judgment as the visitors lost three wickets in the middle session.advertisementMukund had serenely moved to his top Test score of 62 when he shaped to play a rising leg-spin from Bishoo towards mid-wicket but only edged it on to his pads and the lobbed chance was gratefully accepted by Adrian Barath at forward short leg.Kohli seemed intent on making up for his lost chances of the series and had reached 30 without much ado but poked at a harmless delivery from Sammy down the leg-side and was brilliantly caught low by wicket-keeper Carlton Baugh.Laxman’s dismissal was a freak one when he allowed a leg-spin delivery from Shivnarine Chanderpaul to go to Baugh but his backfoot lost contact with the ground for just a fraction of second, which was enough for the keeper to whip off the bails.Laxman was flabbergasted but there was little doubt that it was his own carelessness which had did him in. He shared a 84-run stand for the third wicket with Mukund and added 52 for the next wicket with Kohli.Mukund batted for 176 minutes and hit five fours from 149 balls while Laxman handled 129 balls in 207 minutes, caressing three boundaries.Dhoni, in the company of Raina, then put his head down and began rebuilding the innings with singles and twos.There was never any temptation to throw their bats at a wilting attack, or at least cart the leg-spin of Chanderpaul around the park, as the two showed intent to build a sizeable lead over West Indies.Their stand occupied the most of final session and raised 100 runs in 113 minutes from 182 balls.Raina showed uncharacteristic restraint and reached his half-century from 131 minutes of batting, hitting three fours from 103 balls.There was no further joy for West Indies but for the emergence of Rampaul from the dressing room as Dhoni and Harbhajan Singh (12) helped India reach their first 300-plus score of the series.Earlier in the day, India lost Vijay (1) and Dravid (5) within the first five overs to be 18 for two before normalcy was restored.Vijay was nearly bowled off a low full toss in Edwards’ first over, squeezing the ball between the slip cordon for a four, but his tendency to push at the ball once again proved his undoing.In Edwards’ next over, a delivery took the edge of his bat on way to wicketkeeper Carlton Baugh?s gloves.The Tamil Nadu opener is in the middle of a wretched run of scores, the sequence of his five innings in the series reading 8,0,11,3 and 1.Dravid then fell to Sammy, making the normally passive West Indian captain roar in triumph as he has not done at any stage in this series.Dravid played for an away movement at the delivery which kept coming straight and went between bat and pad to rattle the stumps.- With inputs from PTI

The job has consumed me.“I am just a walking football person. I am thinking football constantly. Every minute is evolved around the job and making sure I’m continuing to take the team and the club forward and it never stops.“The thing I have noticed in recent years, when you get to the Premier League, is how quickly the game changes.“You can never be complacent or content with your work. You have to consistently try to push new boundaries.”
