This settlement will ensure that the company is held accountable for its fraudulent acts and restore taxpayer funds to the agencies that were overcharged. CA Technologies customers who purchased maintenance renewal plans for its software licenses were entitled to free upgrades, resolutions for glitches and web-based technical support for terms of one to three years. Prior to the expiration of a maintenance plan, the company would alert customers to renew their plans and avoid lapses in these services. However, when a customer did renew, the lawsuit alleged, instead of starting the renewal date at the end of the current plan, CA Technologies set the renewal period to begin on the day it processed the renewal order. In effect, it was alleged, customers paid twice for maintenance services in the period between ordering a renewal and the actual end of the current plan for which they already had paid. The second fraudulent allegation covered in the settlement involved a contract CA Technologies had with the Department of Defense for prepaid software under a blanket purchase agreement. The whistleblower lawsuit alleged that the company steered Defense Department customers away from ordering software from inventory the department already had paid for and convinced them unwittingly to spend more money to buy the same products through third-party vendors. The U.S. Attorneys Office of the Eastern District of New York spearheaded the federal and multi-state legal action with assistance from the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. General Services Administration and the Defense Criminal Investigative Service of the Department of Defense.


Electronic Device To Track Parolees

Copy of PN Parolee monitoring system6789

Picture: Phill Magakoe Pretoria – As part of an attempt to reduce the number of prison inmates, Correctional Services Minister Sbu Ndebele has launched the departments new electronic monitoring system, a means of locating and tracking offenders out on parole. This system, which sees parolees fitted with a bracelet and tracking devices, will be used to monitor and locate them after they have been released from prison. Speaking at Correctional Services head office on Monday, Ndebele said his department is responsible for more than 150 000 inmates, each costing the taxpayer more than R9 800 a month. Our country has 51.8 million citizens, and our rate of imprisonment is the highest in Africa, Ndebele said. With the electronic monitoring system, the monthly cost per offender will be reduced to just over R3 300 a month and fewer offenders will be behind bars. Correctional Services Minister Sbu Ndebele inspects the electronic monitoring system at the control room. Picture: Phill Magakoe PRETORIA NEWS Against a background of stubbornly high prison populations and rapidly developing technology, governments are now reaching a critical point in the use of electronic monitoring as a means of reducing costs and improving the effectiveness of corrections, Ndebele said. The department will roll out the first 500 tags and tracking systems, to the value of R18 million, before the end of this financial year. Every year thereafter, more monitoring systems will be issued to parolees. Correctional Services officials yesterday demonstrated the monitoring equipment by fitting a parolee from Mamelodi with an ankle tag and a tracker.

Cu Expands Computers To Youth Program

“I am blessed to be in a position that allows me to give back to the city that made me who I am,” Hart said in a statement. Hart attended local public schools before embarking on an entertainment career that includes the 2011 stand-up special “Laugh at My Pain.” He has also hosted MTV’s Video Music Awards and “Saturday Night Live.” Mayor Michael Nutter joined Hart on Friday to visit four schools that collectively received 300 laptops. The district has endured severe budget cuts this year, including the closure of about two dozen schools. “These computers will allow our students to expand their studies, explore new course material, and prepare for college and careers for years to come,” Superintendent William Hite said in a statement. In addition, 27 city community centers will share 200 desktop computers, which recreation commissioner Susan Slawson called an “invaluable resource for our youth.” Join the Discussion You are using an outdated version of Internet Explorer.

Actor Kevin Hart Donates 500 Computers to Philly

Its purpose is to benefit underserved youth in Colorado and protect the environment. The computer systems received by the high school students through the program are designed to enable academic achievement that will encourage students to attend college. Not only do the high school students but also the college student mentors see this as an inspiring learning experience, said CU-Boulder engineering student and Computers To Youth mentor Rebecca Miller. The fact that CU-Boulder put together this program that saves resources, prevents waste and enables future scientists and engineers is completely brilliant. The next Computers To Youth event will be held Saturday, Nov. 9. Fourteen high school students from the Family Learning Center in Boulder, guided by CU-Boulder student mentors, will go through surplus computer components, bundle parts, load the latest software and take their newly built computer systems with them. The day also will include a new competition in which teams will race to disassemble and reassemble a demonstration computer. As technology increasingly becomes a part of daily life, those without computer access risk falling behind, said Jack DeBell, the CU Environmental Centers recycling program development director. This consequence, known as the digital divide, tends to affect economically disadvantaged populations, especially youth. With such a great amount of computer equipment being discarded by a technologically advanced campus, it only makes sense that some of this equipment be upcycled to bridge the digital divide. The CU-Boulder student mentors are part of the statewide MESA (Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement) program.


American Airlines Customers Will Have Gate-to-gate Use Of Handheld Portable Electronic… — Fort Worth, Texas, Nov. 4, 2013 /prnewswire/ —

Customers need to secure their handheld devices by holding them or placing them in a seatback pocket. Previously, these devices needed to be stowed under a seat or in an overhead bin during taxi, takeoff and landing. Because the safety of our customers and people is always our top priority, customers should listen to all safety briefings and comply with crewmember instructions. Our crewmembers don’t like to interrupt our customers’ productivity, but always want them to be safe. This change doesn’t apply to larger items such as laptops. These items will still need to be stowed during taxi, takeoff and landing. Some American Eagle flights won’t allow the expanded use of PEDs until later this year.

Like the latest material to offer itself up as the future of quantum computing which has been sitting on banknotes for decades. Research published in Nature suggests that a common blue pigment, which is used in the British 5 note, can be used as a low-cost organic semiconductor, ideal for use in quantum computing . The pigment, which is called copper phthalocyanine, has electrons that can remain in a state known as ‘superposition’a quantum effect, where each particle exists in two states at once. Other materials have that property, too, but cruciallyand unlike otherscopper phthalocyanine is abundant and can be easily processed into thin films, perfect for fabricating devices. Indeed, those films should be ideal for the production of qubitsthe quantum version of binary bitsthat power quantum computers. The researchers point out that it seems just as attractive as rarer and more expensive molecules that have been suggested in the past, but is far more common. And there’s a pleasant irony in the fact that a material found in money could actually save scientists some cash. [ Nature via UCL ] Image by andrewrennie under Creative Commons license Related
